Elisabeth \\ ade was appalled bv
John Butler's outburst. She had
thought she had prepared herself for
his disapproval of her brother's
scheme, but she had hoped that
when she explained the reason of
the plot he might understand and
pardon it.
Now, as she looked at his pale
face and noted the agitated twitch
ing of his mouth, her hearth sank.
\ et why should the information that
Clifford Chapin had given him dis
tress him to such an extent—even
if Clifford had told him that she
was not Lizzie Moore, was not re
lated to the Chaplns, and that Dou
glas Wade was her brother?
She attempted to summon her
startled wits.
"Mr Butler," she begged, "please
let me explain. Clifford Chapin
could not have told everything to
you, because he did not know it all.
He did not know why Douglas had
tne come here under an assumed
tame."
The man did not reply, but stood
gazirg at her with an expression
of painted incredulity.

SWEET-NET BETTER is as pure as snow and richer than cream.
Let us tell you how it is made. The ripe cocoanuts, imported from
the Philippine Islands and Ceylon, are crushed and refined into
a cream-white butter. It is impossible to think of anything sweeter,
purer or rich.r. This cream of nuts, which does not contain a trace
of water, is then churned with pasteuried milk. WTien it leaves
the churn it is worked and salted in the same way as butter. Sweet-
Nut Butter does not contain a particle of animal fat, consequently it
is entirely free from lardy or oily flavor.
It serves every purpose for which creamery butter is used—for
the table, on hand or hot biscuits, and in every form of cooking, in
pastry making, frying, etc., and for use on broiled meats.

FRIDAY EVENING,
i "I tell you I did not believe what
he said," he muttered.
"Bput," gently, "I am not Lizzie
Moore." Then, with an effort to
steady her trembling voice. "You
must believe that."
"I do."
"But you can't believe that I"
She got no further, for Butler
checked her by a passionate ges
ture.
1 don't believe another word
that he said!" he burst forih. "Nor
will 1 ever believe it unless you,
yourself, tell mc it is true. I will
not Jet any one else mention the
matter to me."
A sound at the door made them
both turn.
Amos Chapin stood on the thresh
old of the parlor, watching them.
His face was dark and his voice dis
approving.
"What are you two talking about?"
he demanded. "You both seem very
much excited."
Elizabeth attempted o laugh, but
on'y succeeded in perpetrating a hy
•derlcui giggle.
Not a Bit Excited
"Wl y no, we are not excltsd," she
said. "We were only talking over a

little mattter that is of no particular
consequence."
Her reply had given Butler time to
regain his self-control.
"Why do you ask what we were
talking about. Mr. Chapin?" he
queried suddenly. "Did you imagine
that it was something in which you
would be interested?"
The farmer did not flinch at the
implication that he was meddling in
that which was none of his business.
"It might easily be something I
was interested in," h'e retorted. "I
was talking only a while ago to
Lizzie about something that con
cerns me and, that might be of in
terest to her. I was telling her that
I had made an offer for the farm."
"I knew it already!" the girl re
minded him.
Butler looked from one speaker to
the other. He was completely baffled.
The farmer'-s manner was threaten
ing", as if he were iji possession of
some secret that would embarrass
the girl, who stood, her great wide
eyes fixed defiantly on his coarse
face.
"Yes," she repeated, "I knew it
already."
"And you don't want me to buy
the place," Chapin accused. •
She shrugged her shoulders.
"That is a matter that is between
you and Douglas," she said.
It was now the farmer's -.utn to
bo tstounded. Here was Elizabeth
speaking of Wade in the presence
of Butler as if she were willing to
liavo him know of her relationship
to the owner of the farm.
Chapin was suddenly frightened.
He bad let his temper betray him
inio adopting a menacing manner
toward Elizabeth Wade. Her inde
pendence, her defiance of his power,
had angered him.
He also had been chagrined that
Wade had not given him an Imme
diate answer to his offer to pur
chase his property. Delay was dan
gerous to the would-be buyer at
th',B juncture. To antagonize Eliza
beth just now, and, through her,
to antagonize her brother, was still
more dangerous. He must make
amends for his mistake, before it
was too late.
Amos Is Conciliatory
"Well, well, Lizzie," he said con
ciliatlngly, "don't you mind what I
say when I'm a bit out of humor.
The heat makes me cranky, I "guess.
But I was only jollying you a little.
Of course it don't matter to you
who owns this farm."
"But it does," she contradicted.
"It matters very much.
He forced a difficult grin. "Well,
I
HARRISBURG 9562& TPILEGRAPH
my dear, I guess dhat, whether Doc
Wade keeps it and I stay here as a
farmer or whether he sells it to me
and I run it to suit myself, needn't
make any difference to you. You've
always been welcome here, and I
guess you always will be."
"You said just now," she reminded
him, "that you would not stay here
unless you owned the farm."
"I didn't really mean that," he in
sisted, truculently.
She made no reply, but stood, her
eyes fixed on his, a contemptuous
smile curling the corners of hei
mouth.
The farmer moved uneasily, then
muttering that he must see if Talak
had started to do his evening chores
went out of the house.
When he had gone Elizabeth and
Butler faced each other, both pale
and silent. Elizabeth spoke first.
"Mr. Butler," she ventured, "y'ou
say you cannot believe whs* Clif
ford Chapin told you—that you will
not believe it unless you hear it
from his own lips. In that case,
you must hear it from my lips.
He threw out his hand as if ward
ing off a blow, but she hurried on.
"But please do not judge my
brother and me too harshly until you
have heard our entire explanation."
"Your —your—brother," he stam
mered.
She nodded. "Yes. my brother.
I Douglas. I did not tell you that I
was Elizabeth Wade because"
She hesitated, forcing herself to
meet the gaze of the man beside
her. What she saw in his eyes made
her start to her feet, catching her
breath sharply.
(To Be Continued)
The Fifth
Wheel of Food
Women "come together over a
cup of tea;" motorists-stop at inns
and country clubs for sandwiches or
ices; and young people fiock around
soda fountains and candy counters.
It isn't nourishment they want, for
they have enough without that ad
dition. It is merely a pleasant so
cial habit.
But all these candies, creams and
afternoon teas are made up of nour
ishing food. Every such morsel eat
en is subtracted from the legitimate
and necessary meals of the country.
They offer a constant temptation to
the seller to use more than he should
of the sugar and wheat that is need
ed in they lure the buy
er into careless extravagant food
habits.
When people eat well-balanced
meals and obtain sufficient nourish
ment at the table, any other food
they use is wasted. It is like hav
ing a fifth wheel on a cart.
Why not cut out this fifth wheel of
food consumption, as it doesn't help
our progress? Conservation can go
on gaily without tea and cakes, and
a soda does not improve the plot of
the movies. Try companionship for
its' own sake, theaters for the play
and driving for the scenery—with
out the expensive, unpatriotic food
wasting too often connected with
them.

Little Talks by
Beatrice Fairfax '
1
During one of the hottest days of
the last hot spell in Washington a
woman noticed a little girl select a
shady patch of the pavement and be
gin to aet her lunch.
The lunch consisted of a large
green pickle with two ice cream
cones, and the little girl regarded the
feast with the eye of a connoisseur.
The woman, having children of her
own who got sick sometimes, even on
the most vigorously approved rations,
tried to dissuade the reckless young
epicure from what appeared to be
sudden death. But her arguments,
like those of every reformer, prere
coldly received.
"Eats um every day, sometimes 's
two pickles 'n one cone—sometimes
this"—and she bit into the pickle and
the cone alternately.
The woman listened with the re
spect that "last words" from any
source receive. And the little girl ex
plained the family history that ac
counted for the quaintly balanced ra
tion.
"Daddy's over to France, fightin' 'n
rfiomnier works in a laundry all day.
She gives me fifteen cents to buy m'
lunch—git cones and pickles, stale pie
Monday lef over f'om Sattiday in
bak'ry. Gee —1 do have good things
to eat, I do."
"And don't they ever make you
sick?" inquired the woman whose
children got sick sometimes on the
most carefully supervised diet.
"Nope—but they kilt out my little
brother; he died of a Friday, buried
Sunday." Evidently the young epi
cure represented the survival of the
fittest.
The humane woman then asked if
the little girl wouldn't like to visit
her in the country and drink all the
nice milk she wanted. The young epi
cure considere'd dubiously for a mo
ment or two. then said "Nope; I don't
think much o' milk 'less it's in shakes,
'n then I like sodas and cones bet
ter."
Did an Amount of Thinking
So the woman went back to her
place in the country where her care
fully supervised children awaited her
and did an amount of thinking. Here
was a waif whose father was fighting,
whose mother worked, and who ran
the streets and ate pickles and ice
cream cones meantime.
Such emergencies have been met to
a great extent in New York City by
patriotic women working in connec
tion with various war and civic or
ganizations. But as far as the rest
of the country is concerned this high
ly necessary branch of war service
has been practically neglected.
And yet, why should such condi
tions be tolerated? The war waif who
races the streets and dines on
pickles and doubtful ice cream to
day, is to-morrow's citizen, soldier, or
mother of a family. And how mftch
loyalty and good citizenship do you
think a child brings to maturity when
the state has proved to be such a
casual stepmother?
In our headlong desire to win the
war we have mobilized about every
thing that the country has produced
—everything but the idle rich women
who salve their consciences with a
little detached war work or knitting.
But why should the woman slacker
escape when her made counterpart
i has been told that he must either
I work or fight?. And why, in this
eventful year of 1918—known as the
children's year—when we propose to
salvage one-third of our doomed 300,-
000 babies, should not this work of
j looking after soldier's children be
come nation-wide?
The weighing and measuring of
babies is of little practical benefit if,
when we get them past those first
difficult seven years, they are allowed
to roam the streets and eat any un
wholesomeness their pocket money
"will buy.
A Great Duty Near Home
If the dozens of girls and women
who write to me inquiring how they
may get to France in any capacity
would only give this matter of the
war waifs their serious considera
tion what miracles of efficiency
might be accomplished?
Why is it that the duty near at
hand always lacks the magic of the
duty several thousand miles away?
France lures and beckons —a beauti
ful adventure. We sec her in our
dreams a sort of promised land, where
we ride as crusaders. In vain we are
told that every ounce of food in
France is precious; that she has her
full quota of sympathizing friends,
and unless we are trained workers the

Walter Hanlon. of Hummelstown,
Pa., near Harrisburg, thought the
oils and greases with which he
worked m i> garage there were the
'causes of the eczema and water
pimples which a icted him.
"I learned different, though," he
said. "I was all broke out on the
hands, arms and face and tried all
kinds of ointments to get relief, but
nothing helped me. I saw a Tanlac
ad and in despair decided to try it.
I'm not despairing now, though, for
Tanlac certainly reached whatever
was the cause of my trouble and
drove it out Instead of being the
oils and grease outside, as I though!, I
it was inside, but it didn't stay long!

Now if these women sympathizers
outside of New York, where this
question seems to be intelligently
dealt with, would only get together
and form some sort of an organiza

be accomplished.
No vague, far-away adventure of
