14 HOUSEHOLD TALKS Henrietta D. Grauel A Visit to the Sewing School One of the requirements of good ftousekeeping is the knowledge of sew ing. This charming handicraft is 110 longer taught our girls as a punishment or a dreary task as it used to be when a stint of work was laid out and no play permitted until the long seam was done. Now the work is taught in most schools. The lessons are interesting; here is a sample. First there is given some knowledge of the warp and woof of the eloth. "The warp is stronger than the woof and so patterns are laid lengthways of goods when cutting." Now many persons cut and sew con tinually without knowledge why the goods is eut the long way of the cloth but after seeing a loom and watching the weaving the why and wherefore be comes clear. little looms are placed where the girls can see how the threads are woven. Then the position of the seamstress is discussed with relation to the light, the height of the sewing table and the work in hand. A sewer so trained will never bend over her work but bring it up to her. The directions for threading the needle are practical. Holl the end of the thread between the thumb and fore finger until it is twisted tightly, then run it through the needle's eye. Now draw as much thread from the spool as you need and break it off, then the thread will not ravel or draw. Make small knots; never sew without a thimble; have fine needle with the thread and vice versa. Very little children should be sup plied with colored, coarse thread and burlaps or soft canvas. /■ ■ N One Kind For Furnace One Kind For Range Nine times out of ten it is poor policy to use the same kind of coal in both the furnace and the range. If it burns all right in the furnace it will be too hard for the range. The thing to do if you want to run your house economically is to use the kind best suited for your range and another different kind of coal for your furnace. You know there is considerable more to the coal business than most people think. A dealer if he knows his business, can easily recommend the kind of coal that will just suit you if yon give him particulars. Lot us send our expert to advise you. United Ice & Coal Co.

Young boys need sewing work as j much as girls because it teaches pa- : tience, judgment, knowledge of colors, and is good training for hands and j brains. Kindergarteners put great : stress on the needlework of their pupils . and some wonderful results are shown j in these baby clases. In older classes the work is given as : follows, unless circumstances require special course of study: Basting, running stitch, half-back j stitch or full back stitch, over casting, i Hemming and creasing come next j and a marker is used to insure even-; ness. Hems are always turned toward the worker. Selvage edges are not i ! hemmed as they are closely woven and j pucker in the washing. I Over seaming, over casting, French seaming and felled and over handed; | seams are next taught. Then comes 'placing of gathers, gathering, stroking, > 'securing the threads. Hemming on a! patch' and darning are useful lessons, i Straightaway and bias darns and stock- | inet darning must be learned well, then ; button holes are attempted. The instructions are cutting tlie hole, ! over casting it, the button hole stitch 1 and finishing the ends. Lnst but far from least important is the sewing on of buttons. When all this is mastered the girls are allowed , to learn how to nse the machine. This course of study is considered ideal and is the one compiled by Miss Blohm of the State University. It is in use in many of our public schools and sewing schools and any housekeeper will do well to follow it. imrown EMMETT CAMPBELL HALL A Novelized Version o( the Notion i ' Picture Drama of the Same Name Produced by the Lubin Manufac- turin| Company, Illustrated With Photographs From the Picture Pro- LUBIN MANUFACTURING COMPANY Continued CHAPTER VIII.

"Not wortli the cltance." Peterson decided when he had computed the i small amount of miscellaneous cash !

Certainly his luck bad turned, lie would take ad vantage of this complacent uiood of fortune to urge his suit with Elsie Manning, who. he was compelled to reluctantly admit, bad been strangely cold. The moonlight lent romantic charm to the pretty cottage which wns the girl's home, and as he drew near Pe terson was gripped by an emotion he had never before experienced—for the first time ne realized that be was pas oionately in lore mid not moved mere ly by a casual fancy. With quickened heartbeat he hurried forward, only to come to ail abrupt stop as he caught sight of two figures in the shadows of the veranda. There was no mistaking -Elsie .Manning was nestling close In Holt's embrace. Forcing all signs of agitation to van ish from bis face and whistling cheer fully. lie strode noisily forward. The figures hastily drew apart. "Dow do. Miss Elsie —bello. Jimmy!" he said Jovially. "Thought I might run across you here." be added cordial ly (o Holt as they found seats, eou trolling by main strength the rage that again boiled as lie noted the glow of happiness on the younger man's face and the girl's shy joyousness. "fCo. 7. eastbound, is just about due to pass. Isn't she?" Holt asked, glane Ing down the hill to where the single track railway disclosed itself as paral lei silver bars. "Yies. I can hear it." Elsie said. "!i always reminds mother to wind the Mock." she added with a musical •huckle. "Seems—seems like I hear a train ■•oming west." Holt hazarded. "Guess not, of course, but"- He stopped, lis tenlng uneasily. There could be no doubt about it—from the west came the roar of No. 7 as she swept down the long grade from the foothills, and from the opposite direction the pant Ing of a big mogul us it breasted the ►lope. "Look!" Jimmy suddenly shouted ai:d sprang to bis feet. As No. 7 train thundered Into sight pnssonger No. !). which should have been waiting upon the siding at Bax ter station, two miles east, tore round the shoulder of a hill and came on with undiminished speed. Lord Cecil, with fair measure of suc cess. hud linen striving to forget the discomfort of the dnst.v day coach and the distressing roughness of the road bed In dreams of the future-dreams Into which there came a slender girl ish form and wistful eyes. Suddenly his every sense seemed par alyzed by sounds and shocks beyond buuiau imagining, lie was vaguely awure of splintering timbers, of shiv ering glass, of wild shrieks as passen gers started up and were hurled from their feet. Then silent blackness, like deepest sleep, shut down, crushing him into unconsciousness. Almost before the two trains bad met In mutual destruction Holt, Peterson and Elsie had sprung from tile veranda and were racing toward the scene of the catastrophe When tlie.V reached the spot It seem ed that all tile passengers had already extricated themselves or been assisted to safety by those unhurt. As they stared in fascinated horror at a liuif crushed and blazing conch, however, a man crawled painfully forth, and Holt sprang forward to aid him "I'm a' right!" the passenger gasped "Hut there's a man in there— 1 couldn't get him out!" He pointed toward the burning coach. "Coine on!" Holt shouted and. with out waiting for a reply, dashed to the car. Peterson hesitated and drew back. Under Klsie's scornful glance be writhed uncomfortably "No use for two t" go—and we've got to look out for your safety." he stam mered. But the girl turned away. Holt soon reappeared, bearing the body of a man. "Bring him to the bouse." Klsle said with eager pity and gave Jimmy Holt a glance to win which he would have gone through ten times the dire peril lie had just passed She hurried ahead, and with Peterson's assistance Holt carried toward the cottage tile uncon scious Lord Cecil. An hour later Cecil opened his eyes, glanced uucoinprelieiidingly nbout the simple bedroom In whicli be lay, and then smiled iuto the troubled eyes of the girl bending over him "I don't know what It's all nbout. but I'm sure you're awf'ly good, y' know," he said ami went to sleep. "He'll be all right now— nothing the matter except shock rail bump on the head." Holt said with cheerful relief. While not quite so energetic u con valescent as Jlmmv had declared. Ce cil was moving about the next morn ing without much difficulty and took a walk Half an hunt before Peterson had received the express package—for warded by horseman from the Junc tion-containing the Ml for the pay roll and had handed over the money to Holt, taking his'receipt therefor. Holt wrapped the packet of bills in a sheet of brown paper, secured It with a rublier baud and placed It in the safe. No sooner had Ilolt left the office than Peterson applied himself to the combination of the safe, and in a few moments had extracted the package containing the payroll money, replae lug It with a dummy package of Iden tical appearance, the latter maneuver being in case Holt should chance to look In the safe again that day. He hastily closed the safe iinU pocketed the real money package as footsteps sounded alongsidefhe building. A few moments later Lord Cecil entered and inquired for Holt and was informed that lie would lii:d him ou the works. Thither he therefore went and found that young man wearing a slightly worried expression, which, howevef. vanished as Cecil gave his message. The cause of Holt's concern was a brief conversation he had had with the sheriff a few moments before, dur ing which that official had warned him that a gang of veggmen was believed to be in the region When Cecil had gone Holt returned to the office to find that Peterson had already left, a fact that afforded him some satisfaction. It being entirely agreeable to him that no one whoso ever should know that hp Intended to furry on his person until the next day the payroll cash. The packet appeared to be as he had left It. and he careful ly concealed It In an inside pocket. Peterson meanwhile had been busy making arrangements with a couple of tramps "There will be enough loose cash ID the safe to pay you for your trouble aside from what I have advanced,' Peterson assured them. "All I want yon to do Is to remove and destroy tbu brown paper package yon will ue#." I . s " n ~" " 1 ' "" ,T 5 This Automatic Poultry Feeder Will Make Your Hens Lay Better Here's proof!
