How to Serve Grapefruit
Grapefruit is popular with all whol"

If you have grapefruit often pur

use and keep them for cutting out the|
tough centers and freeing the pulp
from the bitter rind; they answer much j
better than a fruit knife. As it is the;
white inner lining that gives the bitter!
taste to this mild fruit the pulp should |
be put into a bowl and covered with'
fruit sugar over night. When ready toj

this fruit, that the 'shells are now
The small grapefruit may have the
juice squeezed from them with a glass
lemon press and this served in a tall
thin glass is weH liked as an appetizer;
Grapefruit jelly served with cream is
one of the most dainty desserts when
made like this:—
To the pulp and all the juice of one
large or three small grapefruit use two
large tablespoons of powdered gettine,
one-half cup of sugar and two cups of
boiling water. Dissolve the sugar in
the water, add the dissolved gelatine,
and then the fruit. More sugar can be
added, with the cream, if it is needed.
This mixture should be put in a mold
to solidify but if all the fruit is put in j
at onco it will go to the bottom. Put'

Grapefruit Wends well with oranges

varied to suit everyone.
The following proportions will be

the same evening Robert found
his way to the club, lie observed but
avoided Lord Cecil, who sat alone with
blank face, lost in painful meditation.
A few moments later Lemoine entered
"Will monsieur be so kind as to re
deem this little I. O. I'.?" he said, and
the low tone carried all over the room.
There was an uncomfortable move

Lemoine raised expressive eyebrows.
"Surely monsieur does not intend to
refuse his paper—a debt of honor? He
does not desire that it be what you
would say, protested for default?"
Though the man spoke with careful
courtesy, his eyes gleamed with mali
cious triumph. Lord Cecil rose lan
guidl.v and joined the group. With an
air of bored indifference he asked the
amount of the note and. with stiff lips.
Robert whispered, "Four thousand

terly chagrined Lemolne concealed with
admirable skill. Airily expressing re
gret that it should have been neces
sary to trouble one for so trifling a
matter, he took his departure.
The nest afternoon Ixird Cecil re- j
ceived from Rrownelowe & Co.. limited,
bankers, a statement to (lie effect that
his draft for £-1.000 had been duly
cashed, that, as per instructions, a
mortgage for that amount had been
added to the incumbrance on Croft
laigh manor and that the total value
of all remaining securities in the
bank's hands was some £2,000. If Lord
Cecil was concerned it was not appar
ent from his bored expression as he
read the letter. Securing ills hat and
cane, he started to walk to Robert's
On the same day the Count Lurovich
returned to London and within an hour
had found upon his wife's dressing ta
ble the following note, composed by
the countess and carefully forged by
the many talented Letnoine:
My Darling—l will call you that, for you
shall be mine, and I cannot think of you
aa "the Countess Lurovtch." Despite
your cold rebuffs, I adore you and will i
yet compel your love. Thine only.
The count was a man of prompt no
tion. Within an hour he had requested
the assistance of Baron von Mayer,
and that gentleman had presented him
self at Lieutenant Stanley's rooms.
Lord Cecil hnd arrived a short time
before and. not finding Robert, had de
cided to await his return. Robert's
man had gone upon an errand, and it
was Cecil himself who opened the door
to Baron von Mayer's knock.
And now It was that Cecil's call npon
the Countess Lurovich assumed an im
portant position. The baron addressed
himself to Lord Cecil as to Lieutenant
Stanley and delivered the message with
which he had been charged. When he
had concluded Cecil bowed.
"I am sure that, as you suggest, a
little trip to France would prove most
agreeable," he said, and the baron de
parted highly pleased.
"One gets so out of practice, y' know.
I wonder." Cecil remarked aloud and
rummaged until he had unearthed a
heavy service revolver. At the oppo
site end of the room he placed two
•mall whisky glasses. With every ap
pearance of carelessness he fired twice
in rapid succession, and the shattered
glass tinkled upon the floor.
Late the following afternoon a strag
gling gronp formed in a park like wood
on the coast of France. With gravity
a space was measured upon the
ground. Lord Cecil smiled gravely at
the Woe sky. then lowered his eyes to
meet those of the Count Lurovich and
in them read deadly hatred. A voice
counted slowly and was silent Lord
Cecil raised his hand and fired Into the
sky at which he had smiled. A second
report rang out. and Cecil, quietly
shifting his pistol to his left hand,
pressed a handkerchief to a spot of
crimson that spread swiftly over his
breast. Then he sank slowly to the
Brm green sod.
A month later Lord Cecil, still weak,
but otherwise Recovered from his
wound. Iny upon 11 couch In the shabby
rooms on Pax ton square and. with
Home satisfaction visible on his fea
tures. read ntirlor "Army Notes'" the

this little I. O. U.?"
An American Heiress.
SINCE a year before, when for the
sake of his family honor and
the happiness of Hose Middle
hurst and his nephew, Robert
Rtunley. Lord Cecil had made good the
|"oung o(Deer's recklessly incurred obli
gations, tyis liuaucial affairs had pone
steadily from bad to worse, until the
rlimax of annoyance was reached In
the letter which he now held in his
"My Lord Cecil," the communication
ran, "we regret to inform your lord
ship that your account Is overdrawn
by £OIO 9s. Your lordship's only re
maining property. Croftlaigh manor.
Is mortgaged to the limit. As your
agents, we have complied with the in
sistent demands of a number of your
creditors and arranged that they shall
call upon you this morning to effect, if
possible, a settlement." Followed the
signature of Messrs. Brownelowe &
Co., limited, bankers.
With an expression of infinite bore
dom Lord Cecil addressed the faithful
James, who. with the skill of long
practice, was engaged in repairing a
ripped seam In a well cut but equally
well worn frock coat.
"A number of, ah. persons, will pres
ently present themselves." lie said
wearily. "You will, .lames, upon this
occasion, admit tlieni. although, as
your discerning eye will at once de
termine. they will he those banes of
existence known as creditors. Since
Brownelowe & Co. have seen fit to
arrange an interview for them without
consulting my convenience, I appre
hend that these are money changers
of importance in the murket place."
James stifled a heavy sigh. Times
were indeed out of joint when the
only nobleman in all Brltsfr,, who,
through immemorial right, might ad
dress the king ns "my lord," com
placently received importunate trades
Before the cold courtesy of Lord Ce
cil's greeting the blustering
manner of the visitors swiftly van
ished. Almost apologetically the spokes
man for the party informed him that
their combined claims amounted to
£5,000 and that they needed the money.
"Aw, but I haven't it, y' know!" my
Lord Cecil remarked dispassionately
and stared vacantly at the visitors,
who shuffled uncomfortably, but made
no helpful suggestion.
"By Jove, I have it!" he suddenly ex
claimed. "I'll marry an American heir
ess, y' know, and pay you all."
Tlie creditors exchanged glances of
relief and nodded their admiration at
his lordship's brilliant solution of the
"That will be most agreeable, your
ludship," the spokesman declared.
"Your ludship is most kind. We will
be 'appy to await your ludshlp's mar
riage. though we venture to 'ope it will
not be long before the 'appy occasion
With bows the visitors moved to
ward the door, their spirits much im
proved, but were brought to a sudden
halt by Lord CecWs next words.
"But I'll need funds for tbe trip to
America, y' know." he suggested.
Sorrowfully the creditors exchanged
glances, nodded and produced rolls of
banknotes. James disdainfully ac
cepted the proffered collection and
with stern glance silenced one stout
tradesman who muttered In his throat
something that sounded like "sending
good money after bad."
"Pack at once. James." Lord Cecil
directed when the door had closed be
hind the departing visitors and cheer
fully lit a cigarette.
