tried to chat pleasantly with her upon

Then I heard her Commenting In un

"That wns decidedly rudo of Alice,"
said tho other' thoughtfully. "I didn't
think sho was guilty of such bad tasto."
"My dcarA" said her husband, quickly,
"the ovor-cnndld woman Is always trans

This Is porfectly true. Too many wo

Lady "VVImbcrley seated herself by the
drawing room Are and clasped her handa
on her knees. Lord Arthur remained
standing. Ho seemed nervous nnd tugged
thoughtfully nt his moustache.
"It's llko this, you see," he said after a
pause, "It's not quite tho thing for a boy

"But Jack Is not Guy's father."
"Well, It will como to about tho same

woman, and you'ro wrapped up in this
precious youngster of yours. When you're
married nto Erleigh, tho poor chap Er

tho other boys, nnd that'll mean trouble."
"Oh, Arthurl As If I should interfere
with the discipline of the school."
He laughed. "You'll try not to," he
snid. "try very hard: but now, look here,
don't you think yourself that you'll be In
clined to be Just a little well, lenient to
ward your own son?"
"Oh, Arthur this is cruel of you to
talk like this, I don't want Guy to go to
another school. I won't have him sent
to another school."
Lord Arthur shrugged his shoulders.
"Well, of course. It rests with you and
Erleigh," he said, "but I know that he
has quite made up his mind that it's the
best thing for the boy and for you."
Lady Wlmberley looked nt him sus
piciously. "Why have you two Just
thought of this?" she queried. "You have
said nothing about It before,"
"I have thought all along that tho boy
ought not to be at Harptree so near to

be living at home. It will be had for
him, bad for you and very awkward for
For a few moments there was silence.
Lord Arthur walked forward to the table
and picked up n sheet of foolscap paper
covered with childish. Irregular writing.
"Young Travers still here?" ho queried.
"Yes. His mother has gone up to town
for a few days. She Is coming back on
Wednesday. The boy is In tho library
"Oh." said Lord Arthur. "And Where's
"Gone to Carstatrs for a while."
"H'm." said Lord Arthur. "Well, now
about Guy you'd better talk It over with
Erleigh, hadn't you? We thought of Eton
they might have him I'm not sure, but
I've got some Influence,"
"You suggested this to Jack?"
"In a way yes; but he had been think

It. We are quite agreed."
"You are keeping something from me,"
she said sharply, "Guy has got Into some
trouble you are keeping something back
I thought so the other day tho morn

self Into some trouble the night he said
ho had lost his way."
"Oh, nonsense, Anne: the boy Is all

I were you I'd give In to htm over It.
He's not a man that can be persuaded to

Lady Wlmberley's lips tightened for a
moment, and then she smiled.
"Well, there la plenty of time," she
said. "Of pourse, he could not leave In
the middle of the term."
"Of course not," said Lord Arthur, and
then he looked at his watch. "I must be

Extra Table Leaves
A new use for extra table ieavee has
bocn discovered by lome Ingenious house
wife. Everyone knows what a trouble It
It Is to dispose of these leaves, which ara
too large to fit Into a closet comfortably
and too necessary to eend, to storage.
xnls woman Used her extra tablo leaves
for n serving table. She didn't fasten
thcirt down In any way,, so that when she
needed them, they could be removed with
out any trouble, She had a carpenter
make the rack to hold tho boards, This
was large enough to accommodate two
boards. One rested acrpss the top, and
one across tho bottom, making two
shelves. Tho rack Itself was made of
strips of wood about an Inch and a halt
square, and was about three feet high.
Each of tho two Uprights were held to
gether two Inches from tho top, and two
inches from tho bottom by strips of wood
the width of the extra leaves.
Tho legs thus formed wero connected by
four long strips about two Inches shorter
than tho leaves, nnlled two on each side,
hear tho top, and bottom. This mado a
long, four-legged rack, with bars upon
the top and bottom for tho extra leaves
to rest on, ono leaf forming tho top. and
ono tho lower Bhelf. Of course, the rack
had to be stained tho same color as tho
leaves, and polished so that you could
novcr tell tho difference between this and
a real serving table.
Dishes, sllverwaro and numerous other
things were kept on tho lower shelf, and
the whole thing wns very useful. It
really Isn't so complicated as It Bounds,
and will cost very little If you have a
carpenter to do the bit of work, as it
seldom is a successful experiment for tho

"Yes," answered Erleigh In a choking
voice. "Guy has disappeared." .
"Guy has disappeared?" queried Lord
Arthur. "Great Scott! man. what are von
doing here? Why aren't you doing any
thing to And him? Merciful heavens, this
Is awful what havo you done when did
this happen how long ago?"
He spoko thickly, angrily, like a man
who had no longer control of himself.
The veins stood out on his forehead; his

"Have you been to the police"
"No I thought I wouldn't do that until
I had tried everything else."
"Well, we'd better go there now I

blame myself for that but now we can't
keep the thing from Lady Wlmberley'B
ears any longer. Tho car Is still outside.
You'd better come along with me at once.
Do you want to ask tho station master
any mora questions?"
"No he has made all Inquiries Guy has
not been to the station of course. It

I thought It best to leave no stone un

"Let us go to the police station." said
Lord Arthur. "Then the car can go on
to Monksllver and bring down Denham.

THA T CHEAPER
By MRS. CHRISTINE FREDERICK
AUTHOR OF "THE NEW HOUSEKEEPING."
It would seem that the last word had
beon said on cheaper cuts of meat. But
the Inoreoso of hoof and mouth dlscasa
in many sections and tho consequent In
crease in price makes the meat prob
lem still as tough (no punl) as over.
What are the much-maligned and
equally much - praised cuts called
"cheaper"? To know this tvo must
know tho architecture of the animal In
question. First, tho most tender pieces
are tho less exposed parts of the nnlmal.
Whatever portions are subjected to
muscular exercise (thus tho loin) ore
tougher because the muscles havo been
used more. This docs not mean that
thero Is not as much nourishment In
tough muscles as In tender ones. The
cheaper cuts have tougher Abres and
the whole problem is to prepare and
soften tho Abrcs, and thus put them on
a par with more tender parts. Tho mus
cles of tho abdomen are also tender, but
give a very coarso grained meat
The structure of tho musclo Abro must

methods of cooking. Each Abro Is llko a

with a Arm tissue and containing Juice
