"Henrietta D. Grauel:
"Please tell me when guests have
found theiv places at the table, who
gives the signal to sit itown! The
first course is soup, may it be served
in patty shells? Should waters lie
served with the soup and what size
should the pattv shells be.' 1 will he
grateful if you will answer these
queries as we are planning an anni
versary dinner. Reader."
_ The hostess leads the way to the
dining table and gives the signal to
be sealed by taking her own place.
At each cover there should be a card
on which is plainly written the name
of the person who is to occupy that
place so there will be no confusion. i
The first course may well be soup,
but you cannot serve it in shells even
if you would from the nature of the
nrticles. I'se bouillon cups, soup plates
or bowls. You can rent what china you
need from your local caterer who will
be glad to make suggestions as to what
will be best.
It you serve a heavy soup wafers
may go with it but if a consomme or
bouillon you must have bread sticks.
Toasted cracker biscuits are served
with any sort of soup. Grated Par
mesian cheese may also be passed. One
ladleful of soup is sufficient for each
person and there never was and never i
will be such a thing as a second helping :
of soup.

Takes One Cord of Certain Kinds of
Wood, Especially That of Hard
Woods, to Equal One Ton of the
Black Diamonds
Washington, D. C„ Dec. 29.—The fuel •
value of two pounds of wood is roughly
equivalent to that of one pound of coal.
This is given as the result of certain
calculations now being made iu the
forest service laboratory, which show :
also about how many cords of certain
kinds of wood art' required to obtain
an amount of heat equal to that in a
ton of coal.
Certain kinds of wood, such as hick
ory, oak, beech, birch, hard maple, ash,
elm, locust, longlcat pine ami cherry
iiave fairly high heat values, and oul\
one cord of seasoned wood ot' these
species is required to equal one ton of j
good coal.
It takes a cord and a half of short
leaf pine, hemlock, red gum, Douglas fir,
sycamore and soft maple to equal a ton
of coal, an I two cords of cedar, red
wood, poplar, catalpa, Norway pine,
cypress, basswood, spruce and white
Equal weights of dry, non-resinous
wods, however, are said to jnve prac
tically the same heat value regardless
of spe.'ies, and as a consequence it can
lie state I as a general proposition that
the heavier the wood the more heat !
to the cord. Weight for weight, how
ever, there is very little difference be- j
tween various species: the average heat
for all that have been calculated is
4.t»00 calories, or lu-at units, per kilo
gram, A kilogram of resin will develop
!J,4UO heat units, or about twice the
•iverage for wood. As a consequence,
resinous woods have a greater heat
\alue per pound than non-resinous
woods, anil this increased value varies, !
of course, with the resin content.
The available heat value of a cord 1
of wood depends on many different fac
tors. It has a relation not only to the
amount of resin it contains bur to the
amount of moisture present. Further
more, cords vary as to tfbe amount of I
solid wood they contain, even when !
they are of the standard dimension and
occupy 1-S cubic feet of space. A
certain proportion of tiiis space is made
up of air spaces between the sticks, and
this air space may 'be considerable iu a
cord made of twistel, crooked, and I
knotty sticks. Out of the 128 cubic feet,
a fair average of soiid wood is about
SO cubic feet.
It is pointed out. however, that heat
value is not the only test of useful
ness in fuel wood and since 95 per cent.
< f all wood used for fuel is consumed
for domestic purposes, largely in farm
houses, such factors as rapidity of.
burning and ease of ighting are" im
portant. Kach section o*' *he country
lias its favored wood ; _ jiese are said
to be, in general, the right ones to |
use. Hickory, of the non-resinous woods, 1
has the highest fuel value per unit vol- j
uuie of wood, and has other advantages.'
It bitrus evenly, and, as housewives say. j
holds the heat. The oaks come next,;
followed by beech, birch and maple. '
Pine has a relatively low heat value per ;
unit volume, but has other advantages. '
It ignites readily anil gives out a quick i
hot flame, but one that soon dies down.
This makes it a favorite with rural j
housekeepers as a summer wood, because
it is particularly adapted for hot days
in the kitchen.
The fuel qualities of chestnut adapt i
it particularly to work in brass foun- I
dries, where it gives just the required
iimount of heat and it is therefore in j
tavor. Coastwise vessels in Florida pay ;
twice as much for Florida buttonwood 1

"Courage, my dove!" the witch
cackled. "No harm shall 'befall thee.

The king seeks thy very self and
naught but magic can give him pauee.
And that magic I possess."
"What mean you, Hagar? What can
magic do for one whom the king nas
set his jaw to win? lam but as a bird
of the trees at fhe mercv of the arch
ers. They will steal upon me unaware
—and then Godiva will vanish from
the earth Is it not so, Hagnr'.'"
"Nay, child. Listen to the wisdom
of Hagar' The witch showed Godiva
the vial containing the magic Dower.
"Take this potion, Godiva. and keep
it on thy person day and night and all
the time. And when thou art too

the sad-hearted girl asked.
"Transformation, my Godiva." the
witch said. "Thou shalt upon partak
ing of (hat potion, change into a Deau
tifui white rose that will not die. Thus
shalt thou escape the arms of the
king. And ( —l, Hagar—alone possess
the power to change thee back again
into buman sbape. Go now with cour
age, Godiva! But hist! Who conies?"
l'wo forms darkened the entrance
to the cave, i'hey entered Into the
rone of tne firelight. Both were
dressed '.n princely array: and one in
particular wore a long cloak that was
drawn across the wearer's face so that
only the eyes were revealed

pered Hagar to Godiva. " Tis the one
who wears no cloak. Beware At the
"No Harm Shall Befall Thee."
firtt movement of these visitors to
place a hand upon thee—take thou
that potion."
The two figures now came closer to
the witch and to Godiva.' The figure
in the long cloak and muffled to the
eyes stared, nay, glared, at Godiva
till the girl backed away in fear of
eyes so malevolent.
For the one who wore the long
cloak was none other than Queen Dut
cinea thus disguised as a courtier.
And the queen, looking upon Godivj
without uttering one word, perceived
that Godiva was indeed beautiful—
more beautiful than the far-famed
queen of Urania. And in that mo
sient of silent scrutiny the queen of
Crania was planning the sneedy death
of the one who was more beautiful
than she.
And with the quepn was Sancha,
who watched all this with serene sat
isfaction. He saw the malevolent
eyes of his lady love, who had refused
to fly with him —and he gloated at the
sight of the humbling of the first
lady of the land by a mere wench. j
"Hagar," now said Sancha. "we
come but to pay our respects to thy
wisdom and to bring thee this token
of our esteem."
Sancha produced a human skull and
presented it to the witch.
"Within that framework of bone,**
Sancha said, "once palpitated a brain
filled with wisdom, it sat upon the
shoulders of one wno was cast Into
the death dungeon—where now Paulo
the huntsman dwells amid the rats."
This last remark Sancha made pur
posely to bring words of agony from
the lips of the frightened and awed
Godiva did now indeed leap into life.
She knelt at the feet of the apparent
courtier who was really the queen and
entreated the dißguised one thus:
"Noble thou lookest, sir, and there- '
fore noble thou mußt be in heart. Can
one so noble refuse the prayer of one j
BO humble? I beseech your gracious- i
ness in behalf of the one who has
been mentioned as resting now at the i
bottom of the oubliette at the king's
palace. I'hy intercession, noble sir, ■
I entreat. Vouchsafe thy mercy, sir—- ]
plead for me and mine with his maj
esty for the life of the one I love."
But tne cruel queen merely turned
her back and left the cave. And San
cha followed her out.
And Hagar the witch caught Godiva
in her bony arms. For Godiva was
collapsing from sheer grief, sobbing
her heart out, grief added to grief, at
learning that one ao noble looking as
yonder courtier could Indeed prove
to be one so calloused of heart as to
refuse to vouchsafe so much as one i
1 word of encouragement or even of
1 pity for the sorrow of a girl whose
| only fault waa that she loved the man
who had struck the king of Urania in
defense of her own honor.
Queen Dulclnea Disguised as a Cour
j "Courage!" crooned the witch. "Re

surcease of sorrow by turning you into
a white rose with life that ehall be
The Bleeding Heart.
The queen, disguised as one of the
king s courtiers, and Sancha, the
king's chamberlain, mounted their
horses outside the witch's cave and
rode back toward the royal palace. As
they zigzagged through the forest
aisles the queen, ablaze with rage and
jealousy at the thought of the beauty
of Godiva, said:
"Sancha, this night thou shalt do
me a service."
' A service, I hope, that your majesty
will requite," Sancha said.
"Talk not of reward of the kind
thou hast in mind, Sancha, for never 1
will 1 fly with thee as long as I am
queen of Urania Resides, thou of
fendest me with this constant prattle
of flight in which I am to keep thee
company. If thou art not satisfied
with mv favors as they are, then thou
hndst best thyself begone from the
Now to be gone from the palace was
farthest from Sanclia's aims. For his j
duties as chamberlain to the king had
perquisites of great value in doubloons
and Sancha had no hankering in his
breast to forswear those perquisites. ;
So now he made haste to say:
"Alas, l'air Dulcinea. I could not
leave the palace even if I would. For
your beauty, dear queen, holds me
within the palace walls as one bound
with chains of iron."
i'hie wa3 the kind of flattery that
Sifticha well knew was liked by the
queen. Flattery was to the ears of
this proud patrician of Urania a3 meat
and honey to the palate. So now she
smiled upon Saacha and unburdened
her mind of her own evil and cunning
"This night, Sancha." she said, "thou
shalt destroy this beauty of the foY
est upon whom mine eyes have looked.
There is lust in my heart for the sight
of her own heart torn from her body.
Even so would 1 6lay the wench were
I a man. Art thou, Sancha, such a
"Ay, mistress, even such a man am
I," the chamberlain replied. "Thou
hast but to command me."
"Well. then. Sancha, tonight when
all is dark in Urania, steal thou forth
from the palace with not too many of
the king's retainers and go hence to
the cottage of the shepherd Rivarre
and secure there the heart of this Go
diva girl Bring thou that heart to
me and I—well, who can say, Saucha,
what reward shall be thine when my
gratitude is to be manifested?"
"As thou comrhandest, your majesty,
so shall it be. Tonight when all is
dark none in Urania shall possess
beauty even approaching thine own. I
For, in the darkness, Godiva shall j
cease to live and lier heart shall adorn
thy bedchamber."
Ar.d having made there plans, the
queen and Sancha stoie into the pal- j
ace by the postern gate.
Meantime the king paced his apart- j'
ment in impatience and in wonder that I
his chamberlain, came not for |
■»is orders. But now at last Sancha '
entered and cringed before his maj
esty, ,_ven as servile and unworthy
rawling things called men cringe be
fore the person they most fear.
"Sancha," said the king, "this night
thou shalt do me a service."
"As your majesty wills," replied j
Sancha, again making low obeisanco. '
"This night, Sancha, when darkness
Is over all Urania, take certain of my
retainers and go hence to the cottage
of Rivarre the shepherd "
At this command Sancha trembled
in his riding boots For the order was
the counterpart of the one already
given by the queen. Ana how was any ;
court chamberlain to serve master and
mistress at the same time unless —Ah.
that was it —unless both sent him on
precisely the same errar.d.
"And when you reach the shepherd's
cottage," the king now continued, 'you
will seite the person of Godiva, the
beauteous maiden, and bring her i
hither—alive Ay, mark you well, !
Sancha! I want the maiden alive! Let
one hair of her head come to harm,
and thou, Sancha. shalt be flung into
the dungeon along with the girl's
man, now rotting there."
Sancha trembled. Here, indeed,
were contrary commands. For the
queen, to gain her favor, he was to
bring the maiden's heart. If he failed
in this, he, Sancha, would be banished
from the palace and from the favor
of the queen. For the king, -on the
other hand, he was to bring the maiden
alive. And if he failed in this, if the
maiden suffered one least Uttl* of

erably. Was ever court chamberlain
in dilemma more puzzling?
"Go now, Sancha,' the king said, in
dismissal, "and execute my commands
And remember—the demoiselle must
be brought to me alive!"
As darkness descended over Ura
nia Sancha took aside six of the king's
retainers. And to them he said: "This
night we go upon an errand for the
king to bring back a maiden alive—
remember —alive!"
And later this same Sancha, cham
berlain to the king, took six other re
tainers of the king and to them said:
"This night we go upon an errand
for the queen. And it shall be our
duty to bring back the heart of a
maiden. Remember —the maiden's
Thus, upon giving conflicting orders
to two different groups of the king's
retainers, Sancha hoped now to play
his game with some showing of suc
cess. If the maiden were brought to
the castle alive he would go to the
queen and declare that the king's men
had seized her. And if the heart of
the maiden were brought to the pal
ace, he would go to the king and de
clare that the queen's minions slew
the maiden.
Meantime, Godiva, heartbroken and
cast down with sorrow over the Im
pending fate of her lover Paulo, sought
the privacy of her bedchamber in the
cottage of Rivarre, the shepherd.
In the kitchen Rivarre ami his good
wife 6at by the fire bemoaning the
fate that had overtaken them and
changed their daughter's wedding
night Into a night of mourning. And
presently Rivarre, hearing unaccus
tomed sounds without, peered from
the window, then turned to Mistress
Rivarre in deep alarm.
"Many men are approaching," he
whispered. "What new tragedy comes
now ?"
With that the door burst open and
six of the king's retainers entered.
