Billina Frightens the Nome King
Now when Dorothy had entered
the palace to make her guesses and
the Scarecrow was loft with the
Nome Kirlg, the two sat in moody
silence for several minutes. Then
the monarch exclaimed, in a tone
of satisfaction:
"Very Good!"
"Who is very good?" asked the
" T he machine man. He won't
need to be wound up any more, for
he has now become a very neat
ornament. Very neat indeed."
"How about Dorothy?" the Scare
crow enquired.
"Oh, she will begin to guess pretty
soon," said the King cheerfully.
"And then she will join my collection,
and it will be your turn."
The good Scarecrow was much
distressed by the thought that his
little friend was about to suffer the
fate of Ozma srd the rest of their
party; but while he sat in gloomy
reverie a shrill voice suddenly cried:
„ Kut, kut, kut—ka-daw-kutl!
Kut, kut, kut—ka-daw-kuft!"
The Nome King nearly jumped off
his seat, he was so startled.
"Good gracious! What's that?"
he yelled.
"Why, it's Billina," said the Scare
"What do you mean by making
a noise like that?" shouted the King
angrily, as the yellow hen came from
under the throne and strutted proud
ly about the room.
"I've got a right to cackle 1
guess," replied Billina. "I've just
laid my egg."

"What! Laid an egg'. In my
throne room! How dare you do such
a thing;?" arked the King, in p. voice
of fury.
"I lay eggs wherever I happen to
be," said the hen, ruffling her
feathers and then shaking them
into place.
"But—tliunder-ation! Don't you
know that eggs are poison?" roared
the King, while his rock-colored eyes
struck out in great terror.
"Poison! Well, I declare," said
Billina, indignantly. "I'll have you
know all my eggs are warranted
strictly fresh and up-to-date. Poison,
"You don't understand," retorted
| the little monarch, nervously. "Eggs

i to the world on the earth's surface,
I where you came from. Here, in
my underground kingdom, they are
rank poison, as I said and we Nomes
can't bear them around."
"Well, you'll have to bear this one
around." declared Billina; "'for I've
laid it."
"Where?" asked the King.
"Under your throne," said the
The King jumped three feet into
i the air, so anxious was he to get
I away from the throne.
| "Take it away! Take it away at

"I can't," said Billina. "I haven't
any hands."

Hearing this, the monarch hasten
ed to put good distance between
himself and the Scarecrow, who was
about to reach under the throne for
the egg when the hen suddenly
"What's wrong?" asked the Scare
"Don't take the egg unless the'
King will allow me to enter the
palace and guess as the others have
done." said Billina.
"Pshaw!" returned the King. "You
are only a hen. How could you
guess my enchantments?"
"I can try, I suppose," said Bil
lina. "And, if I fail, you will have
another ornament."
"A pretty ornament you'd make,
wouldn't you?" growled the King.
"But you shall have your way. It
will properly punish you for daring
to lay an egg in my presence. After
the Scarecrow is enchanted you shall
follow him into the palace. But how
will you touch the objects?"
"With my claws," said the hen:
"and I can speak the word 'Ev' as
plainly as anyone. Also I must have
the right to guess the enchantments
of my friends, and to release them
if T succeed."
"Very well," said the King. "You
have my promise."
"Then," said Billina to the Scare
crow, "you may get the egg."
He knelt down and reached under
neath. the throne and found the egg,
in her new Artcraft Picture
in his funniest comedy
I "The Floorwalker"
which he placed In another pocket
of his jacket, fearing that if both
eggs were in one pocket they would
knock together and get broken.
Just then a bell above the throne
rang briskly, and the King gave an
j other nervous jump.
[ "Well, well!" said he, with a rue
ful face; "the girl has actually done
I It."
"Done what?" asked the Scare
crow. \
"She has made one guess that is
right, and broken one of my neatest
enchantments. By ricketty, it's too
.bad! I never thought she would do
"Do I understand that she will
now return to us in safety?" cu
quired the Scarecrow, joyfully wrink
ling his painted face into a broad
"Of course," said the King, fret
fully pacing up and down the room.
"I always keep my promises, no
matter how foolish they are. But
I shall make an ornament of the
yellow hen to replace the one I have
just lost"
"Perhaps you will, and perhaps
you won't murmured Biiiiua calmly.
"I may surprise you by guessing
"Guessing right?" snapped the
King. "How should you guess right,
where your betters have failed, you
stupid fowl?"
Billina did not care to answer thi.i
question, and a moment later the
doors flew open and Dorothy entci
ed, leading the little Prince Evring
by the hand
The Scarecrow welcomed the girl
with a close embrace, and he would
have embraced Evring, too, in his
delight But the little Prince was
shy, and shrank away from the
painted Scarecrow because he did
not yet know his excellent qualities.
But there was little time for the
friends to talk, because the Scare
crow must now enter the palace.
Dorothy's success had greatly en
couraged him and they both hoped
he would manage to make at least
one correct guess.
However, he proved as unfortun
ate as the others except Dorotliv.
and although he took a good deal of
time to select his objects, not -One
did the poor Scarecrow guc3S aright.
So he became a solid gold card
receiver, and the beautiful but ter
rible palace awaited its next visitor.
"It's all over,", remarked the King,
with a sigh of satisfaction, "and it
has been a very amusing perform
ance, except for the one good guess
the Kansas girl made. I am richer
by a great many pretty ornaments.
"It is my turn, now," said Billina
"Ob, I'd forgotten you," said the
Kins. "But you needn't go If you
don't wish to. I will be generous,
and let you off"
"No you won't," replied the hen.
"I insist upon having my guesses, as
you promised."
"Then go ahead, you absurd
feathered fool!" grumbled the
King, and he caused the opening that
led to the palace to appear once
"Don't go, Billlna," said Dorothy,
earnestly. "It isn't easy to guess
those orn'ments, and only luck saved
me from being one myself. Stay
with me, and we'll go back to the
Land of Ev together. I'm sure this
little Prince will give us a home."
"Indeed I will," said Erring with
much dignity.
"Don't worry, my dear," cried Bil
llna, with a cluck that was meant
for a laugh. "I may not be human,
but I'm no fool, if I am a chicken."
"Oh, Billlna!" said Dorothy, "you
haven't been a chicken tn a long
time.—Not since you—you have been
—grown up."
"Perhaps that's true," answered
Billlna, thoughtfully "But If a Kan

Then Billlna gave pevepal loud
"cluck-cluoks" that seemed to make
the fat little King more nervous
than ever, and marched through the
entrance Into the enehanted palace,

Finally, having made a survey of

Young Welsh Engineer Is the
Talk of London
I.oiulon, Oct. 13.—D. R. Llewel

cause he is completing the most
important combination of coal
mines and steel mills since the be
ginning of the war. Its capital will
be $30,000,000, and it will control
coal production of approximately
5,000,000 tons a year.
"Coal is our basic industry," he
says. "It is more valuable than
gold. I am an optimist. Organi
zation, modern machinery, and la
bor saving devices in the coal in
dustry will pay as large dividends
to-day as at any time.
"I think that unless wo can get
the miners back to a 48-hour week
we are going to have difficulty
meeting our export demands. Un
less the hours are increased we
shall produce only enough for our
I own requirements.
"The argument that a man can
be speeded up to produce the same
quantity in a shorter time is rub
bish. When the miner was sup

Halo-Americans, Who.
Served in U. S. Army,
Sending Money Home
Naples, Oct. 18. —Tens of thou
sands of checks amounting to mil
lions of dollars each month are be
ing sent to relatives here by the
Italo-Americans who served in the
American Army. Therefore the
money received from American sol
diers' allotments, War Risk Insur
ance benefits, and United States Gov
ernment compensation constitutes
one of the chief sources of income
for -Southern Italy at the present
time. Of the thousands of Italo-
Americans in the American Army,
the great majority were from South
ern Italy, which has furnished the
bulk of Italian emigrants to the
United States.
At the present rate of exchange
of almost ten liro to the dollar, these
checks yield a profitable revenue to
Italy. It is a widely-known fact
that thousands of families in South
ern Italy to-dny are being largely
supported by such contributions from
the Treasury of the United State 3.
