to tho Clem I met the other day as I
stopped out from J. T.'s building. I do

I am nfrald of her, not for what sho

heart on paper. Wftrm words get chilled
In tho tub of Ink and belle themselves.
Thero Is only ono way, and that Is Just
to tell you that in splto of how thlng3

was colled up at tho back of her neck,
and her frock when sho stood up almost

Farmer Smith's. Frog Book
Dr. Bull Frog had carefully tucked
himself under a board, backing in with
his long legs first, and gone fast asleep
one warm night only to wake, up the
next morning and find Mr. Water Bird

Dr. Bull Frog wondered if Mr,
Water Bird knew he was there and
how long he was going to stand guard
over the entrance to the good doctor's
modest home.
By and by the bird turned its tail
toward Dr. Bull Frog and he hopped
out of his home as fast as he could
and went toward the big pond. He
kept ono eye on Mr. Water Bird and
every time the fellow in the tree made
a move, Dr. Bull Frog would lie very

In a brond plait and pinned thorn. Sho

Sho shook her head to tumble her hair
and turned for a last look In tho glass.
She was a little girl onco more. Hor
eyes laughed back at hor. They wero
half light, half shadow. They seemed
to understand her.
Clem ran back to the library. A shaft
of sunlight struck across Alan's open
letter. Sho snatched up tho letter nnd
tucked It In her bosom. Then sho fol
lowed tho shaft of sunlight on to tho
back verandn.
For a moment sho stood poised beforo
sinking to a scat on n bench. She crossed
her knees nnd smiled at her slim, well
shaped legs. It wns so long since she hnd
consciously seen them that they were al
most strangers. Then sho forgot them,
braced her hands on the bench nt each
sldo of her, threw back her head, filled
her lungs with tho keen air aid felt her
heart begin to pulso with tho pulso of tho
living Hill.
Her eyes crew largo and dreamv. In
their dcptlin wero swirling clouds, chased
by n glowing light. Her eyes mirrored
tho world of Ited Hill nfter rain. Clem's
head slowly dropped until her chin rested
on her bosom. Sho locked her hands
about her knees, Thon, with a last look
nbout her, sho rose Blowly, slipped In and
sat down at her desk.

dill sprigs In tho bottom of tho can. Wash
good-sized cucumbers and drop thorn Into
tho Jar with a few sprigs of dill between.
When tho Jar Is filled with cucumbers
put In another handful of dill on top,
crowding down between tho cucumbers;

Women in Consultation
Wo scarcely pick up a paper without
reading the opinion of women regarding
this tremendous matter of Immigration

Women no longer leave It up to tho
men: they get busy. They keep busy.
Women havo proved their endurance and

Its Enforcement Would Make Extradition Law,
Now Null, Effective, and Aid Needy Fami-
leis, Says Anna B. Burns
The futility of the extradition law of 1903, caused by the non
enforcement of the stone pile net, which provides that the earnings
of prisoner-husbands bo turned over to their wives, is pointed out by
Miss Ann B. Burns in this, her third of a series of articles for tho
Evenino Ledger on needed social rcfoim. Writing authoritatively on
her subject, she shows how the two laws nro interlaced in their practical
effects, and how, if the latter were enforced, it would not only relieve
tho sufferings among dependent families of men imprisoned for deser
tion and non-support, but would also mako tho extradition act n power
ful weapon. Not n penny of the money earned by husbands' labor in
tho House of Correction has been paid to the needy families.
Slnl Worker nnd In estimator
Not only does tho non-enforccment of
tho stono pile act Inflict suffering nnd
deprivation upon the families of desert
ing nnd non-supporting husbands, but It
nlsn renders futllo the operation of tho
cxttndltlon law of 1903.
This law, making desertion nnd non
support a misdemeanor nnd therefore ex
traditable, was passed by tho Legislature
In order to force these delinquent men to
support their fnmlllcs.
However, It Is pointed out, the process
of rxtrndltlon Imposes nn added expense
to the county, which often proves fruit
less of good results. These men are sent
to tho Houso of Correction for a term,
nnd when liberated again Ilco tho State,
leaving their fnmlllcs still dependent nnd
unprovided for. Whllo In somo cases
Incnrccintlon has n good effect, In many It
proves of no avail.
It U argued that If tho stone pile law
woro enforced and C5 cents per day of
their prison earnings paid to tho families
of those men In many cases tho extradi
tion law would not have to ho Invoked.
Delinquent husbands would then rcallzo
the futility of leaving the Slnte, for they
could not only be brought back, but put
to labor In tho Houfo of Correction nnd
their families be paid a portion of their
earnings during their confinement. This
not only would bring relief to the families
of theso men, but also would freo tho
county of tho expense of extradition.
This argument Is given strength by the
fact thnt It often hns proved effective
merely to threaten tho enforcement of tho
Michael J. Ityan is authority for tho
statement that during his administration
as City Solicitor, at which time cases of
desertion nnd nonsupport wero handled
In that department, ho found tho mero
threat of enforcing tho law efficacious
In bringing about the desired results.
"In almost ovcry case," said Mr. Ryan,
"where a threat has been made to en
forco tho stono pllo act tho man has
promptly paid tho court order." ,
It will be noted that this was at a
tlmo when tho law was new and before
it became generally known that It was

Tho foregoing figures nnd Mr. Ilyan'a
statement lend color to tho belief that
woro tho law of 1913 enforced a much
greater number of men could bo Influ

Mr. Little, general secretary of tho So

non-support a misdemeanor, could bo'on

It would seem then that oven whero
tho extradition law of 1903 Is strictly en

tho stone pllo law to effect any material
