Compared with the preoeding month
of August, the shipments In Septem

effect of the labor disturbances, and

Mahoud Pasha to U. S.
New York, Oct. 11.—Mahoud Pasha,
member of the delegation demanding
independence for Egypt, has arrived
here aboard the France of the French

Billina, squatting under the throne
of the Nome King, was overhearing
every word of His Majesty's con
versation with his Steward, and she
Just kept on chuckling to herself.
"Still," the Steward continued,
roughly, "you are acting foolish by
running tho chance, and it is still
more foolish of you to transform all
those people from Oz into green
"I did that because they came
from the Emerald City," replied tlie
King, "and I had no green orna
ments in my collection until now.
I think they will look quite pretty,
mixed with the others. Don't you?"
The Steward gave an angry grunt
"Have your own way, since you
are the King," he growled. "But If
you come to grief through your cure
lessness, remember that I told you
so. If I wore the magic belt which
enables you to work all your trans
formations, and gives you so much
other power, I am sure I would make
a much wiser and better King than
you are."
"Oh, cease your tiresome chatter!"
commanded the King, getting angry
again. "Because you are my Chief
Steward you have an idea you can
! scold me as much as you please.
But the very next time you become
impudent, I will send you to work
in the furnaces, and get another
Nome to fill your place. Now fol
low me to my chamber, for I am
going to bed. And see that I am
wakened qarly to-morrow morning.
I want to enjoy the fun of trans
forming the rest of these people Into
"What color will you make tho
Kansas girl?" asked the Steward.
"Gray, I think," said his Majesty.
"And the Scarecrow and the ma
chine man?"
"Oh, they shall be of solid gold,
because they are so ugly In real
Then the voices died away, and
Blllina knew that the King and his
Steward had left the room. She
fixed up some of her tall feathers
that were not straight, and then
tucked her head under her wing
again and went to sleep.
In the morning Dorothy and the
Dion and Tiger were given their
breakfast in their rooms, and af
terward Joined the King in his
throne room. The Tiger complained
bitterly that he was half starved,
and begged to go into the palace and
become an ornament, so that ho
would no longer suffer the pangs of
"Haven's you had your break
fast?" asked the Nome King.
"Oh, I had Just a bite," replied
the beast. "But what good is a bite,
to a hungry tiger?"
"He ate seventeen bowls of por
ridge, a platter full of fried sausages,
eleven loaves of bread and twenty
one mince pies," said the Steward.
"What more do you want?" de
manded the King.
"A fat baby. I want a fat baby,"
said the Hungry Tiger. "A nice,
plump. Juicy, tender, fat baby. But,
of course, if I had one, my con
science would not allow me to eat it.
So I'll have to be an ornament and
forget my hunger."
"Impossible!" exclaimed the King.
"I'll have no clumsy beasts enter
my palace, to overturn and break all
my pretty nick-nacks. When the
rest of your friends are transformed
you can return to the upper world.
Dorothy Tries to Be Brave.
Dorothy and Evring pass the portals and enter the throne room,
and go about your business."
"As for that, we have no busi
ness, when our friends are gone,"
said the Lion. "So we do not care
much what becomes of us."
Dorothy begged to be allowed
to go first Into the palace, but Tik
tok firmly maintained that the slave
should face danger before the mis
tress. The Scarecrow agreed with
him in that, so the Nome King open
ed the door for the machine man,
who tramped into the palace to meet
his fate. Then his Majesty return
ed to his throne and puffed his pipe
so contentedly that a small cloud
of smoke formed above his head.
Bye and bye he said:
"I'm sorry there are so few of
you left. Very soon, now, my fun
will be over, and then for amusement
I shall have nothing to do but ad
mire my ornaments."
"It seems to me," said Dorothy,
"that you are not so honest as you
pretend to be."
"How's that?" asked the King.
"Why you made us think it would
be easy to guess what ornaments
the people of Ev were changed into."
"It is easy," declared the mon
arch, "if one is a good guesser. But
it appears that the members of your
party are all poor guessers."
"What is Tiktok doing now?"
asked the girl, uneasily. I
"Nothing," replied the King with
a frown. "He is standing perfectly
still, in the middle of a room."
"Oh, I expect he's run down," said
Dorothy. " I forgot to wind him up
this morning. How many guesses
has he made?"
"All that is allowed except one,"
answered the King. "Suppose you
go in and wind him up and then you
can stay there and make your own
"All right," said Dorothy,
"It is my turn next," declared the
"Why, you don't want to go away
and leave me alone, do you?" ask
ed the girl. "Besides if Igo now I
can wind up Tiktok. so that ho can
make his last guess."
"Very well, then," said the Scare
crow, with a sigh. "Run along, little
Dorothy, land may good luck go
with you!"
So Dorothy, trying to be brave in
spite of her fears, passed through the
doorway into the gorgeous rooms of!
the palace. The stillness of the place
awed her, at first, and the child

drew short breaths, and pressed her
hand to her heart, and looked all
around with wondering eyes.
Yes, it is a beautiful place; but
enchantments lurked in every nook
and corner, and she had not yet
grown accustomed to the wizardries
of these fairy countries, so different
from the quiet and sensible common
places of her own native land.
Slowly she passed through several
rooms, until she -Came upon Tiktok,
standing motionless. It really seem
ed, then, that she had found a
friend in this mysterious palace, so
she hastened to wind up the mach
ine man's action and speech and
"Thank you, Dor-oth-y," were his
first words. "I have now one more
guess to make."
• "Oh, be very careful, Tiktok;
won't you?" cried the girl.
"Yes. But the Nome King has
us in his power, and he has set a
trap for us. I fear we are all lost,"
he answered.
"I fear so, too," said Dorothy,
"If Smith and Tin-ker had giv
en me a guess-ing clock-work at
tach-ment," continued Tik-tok, "I
might have de-fied the Nome King.
But my thoughts are plain and
sim-ple, and are not of much use
in this case."
"Do the best you can," said Dor
othy, encouragingly, "and if you fall
I will watch and see. what shape you
are changed into."
So Tiktok touched a yellow glass
vase had daisies painted on
one side, and he spoke at the same
time the word "Ev."
In a flash the machine man had
disappeared, and although the girl
looked quickly in every direction,
she could not tell which of the marly
ornaments the room contained had a
moment before been her faithful
friend and servant.
So all she could do was to accept
the hopeless task set her, and make
her guesses and abide by the result.
"It can't hurt very much." she
thought, "for I haven't heard any
of them scream or cry out—not even
the poor officers. Dear me! I won
der if Uncle Henry or Aunt Em will
ever know I have become an
orn'ment in the Nome King's palace,
and must stand forever and ever in
one place, and look pretty—'cept
when I'm moved to be dusted. It
isn't the way I thought I'd turn out.

at all; but I s'pose It can't be help
She walked through all the rooms
once more, and examined with care
all the objects they contained but i
there were so many, they bewildered
her, and she decided after all, as
Ozma had done, that It could be only
"''pas work at the beet, and that the
W ances were much against her
guessing aright.
Timidly she touched an elabaster
bowl and said: "Ev."
"That's one failure, anyhow," she
thought. "But how am I to know
which thing is enchanced and which
is not?"
Next she touched the image of
a purple kitten that stood on the
corner of a mantel, and as she pro
nounced the word "Ev" the kitten
disappeared, and a pretty fair-halr
ed boy stood beside her. At the same
time a bell rang somewhere in the
distance, and as Dorothy started
back, partly in surprise and partly
in joy, the little one exclaimed:
"Where am I? And who are you?
And what has happened to me?
"Well, I declare!" said Dorothy.
"I've really done it."
"Done what?" asked the boy.
"Saved myself from being an
ornament" replied the girl, with
a laugh "and saved you from
being forever a purple kitten."
"A purple kitten?" he repeated.
"There is no such thing."
"I know," she answered. "But
there was, a minute ago. Don't
you remember standing on a cor
ner of the mantel?"
"Of course not lam a Prince of
Ev. and my name Is Evring," the
little one announced, proudly. "But
my father, the King, sold my mother
and all her children to the cruel
ruler of the Nomes, and after that
I memember nothing at all."
"A purple kitten can't be 'spected
to remember, Evring," said Dor
othy. "But now you are yourself
again, and I'm going to try to save
some of your brothers and sisters,
and perhaps our mother, as well. So
come with me."
She siezed the child's hand and
eagerly hurried here nnd there, try
ing to decide which object to choose
next. The third guess was another
failure, and so was the fourth and
the fifth.
Little Evring could hot imagine*
what she was doing, but he trotted
along beside her very willingly, for
he liked the new champion he had
Dorothy's further quest proved un
successful; but after her first dis
appointment was over, the little girl
was filled with joy and thankful
ness to think that after all she had
been able to save one member of
the "royal family of Ev, and could
restore the little Prince to his sor
rowing country. Now she might re
turn to the terrible Nome King In
safety, carrying with her the prize
she had won in the person of the
fair-haired boy.
So she retraced her steps until she
found the entrance to the palace and
; as she approached, the massive doors
> of rock opened of their own accord,
. allowing both Dorothy and Evring
s to pass the portals and enter the
r throne room.

The Ford car can well be called the "peoples
car," because there are more than 3,000,000 of
them in daily operation. That is about four
, to one of the nearest follower in the motor car
industry. This would not be so if the Ford car
had not for sixteen years proven its superiority
in service, in durability, and in*the low cost for
operation and maintenance; this would not be /
so if the Ford car was not so easy to understand,
so simple in construction that anybody and

Food For Thought
Vulcanizing, like shoe repairing, tailoring, etc.,
is a money saver. You don't hesitate to have your
shoes half soled or your suit mended. You don\
wait until they are almost gone before you have it
done. A stitch in time saves nine. So why wait
until the tread on your tire is worn down to the last
fabric? Take it to a good vulcanizing establish
ment as soon as it shows a cut or blowout. In that
way you will save dollars and add mileage.
And By the Way
t You can't find a better vulcanizing, repairing and
retreading establishment in Harrisburg than
Black's Garage. For quality of work and prompt
and courteous service, you need look no further.
