Several Staffs of Life
We say "Bread is the staff of life,"
but after all bread is only wheat, or
rye, or corn, or some cereal well cooked.
Kvery nation has its favorite "staff."
Ours is wheat and most of our bread
is made of this, but the Scotch High
landers used to carry parched oats as
their onlv provisions on their border
forays, 'rile American Indian was sat
isfied with corn parched and ground,
and it was only when tn cainp enjoying
all the comforts of home that time was
taken to boil the graiu and make it
No other nation has such a wealth
of cereals as we enjoy; corn, oats, rice,
w-heat and barley are always to be had,
and every one of these is offered to us
in form of flour or as a cereal. As a
consequence we have a greater variety
of breads than other people.
So great ha« the cereal output be
come that we have ihvented new cereal
diehe9. We are manufacturing fortv
two varieties of "predigested" or
"ready to eat" breakfast t'oods. All
of them are wholesome and, if you do
not object to their high price, great
helps to the hurried mother of a fam
ily, at breakfast time.«
Lately we have had a "new" wheat
called Durum; it comes from Russia
and is exceedingly rich in nutritive
properties and is used for macaroni
and similar pastes as well as for the
best "whole wheat" bread. Of all the
"staffs" it is the strongest.
Though Durum wheat flour is new
to us it has long been preferred abroad,

Sancha resolved that now was the
time to exact ot his mistress the [
promise he had ions sought Above t
all else in the world the queen de- j
sired the death of the one who was
more beautiful than Lerself. There
tore now surely the queen would give
any promise as the price she would |
pay to one who woitld encompass her
' Duleiiiea,'' Sancha said, "before I
do for ihee this harrowing service—
at risk of my life should the king
perchance enter the secret chamber
belore I have done—for this service, '
1 say, thy promise of thy love shall !
be my reward."
Tlie queen, shrewd and well taught
in the ways of men, understood the
veiled threat. She knew that Sancha
implied that unless she gave tho
promise of her love Sancha would
find a way to fail again to encompass
the girl's death; and thus the one
who was more beautiful would still
live to be compared with her maj
"The promise of my love thou hast,
Sancha, - ' the queen said, shrewdly
foreseeing that she would refute the !
promise and repudiate his advances, !
once he had executed her will.
She gave Sancha, with significant
smile, a dagger. "Now go!" she said.
"And see that thou losest not thy
courage till that stiletto is stained
with the blood of Godiva "
Sancha bowed himself from the
queen's chamber and hastened to the
lower region of the palace. He
reached the room over the death dun
geon, wherein was the iron grating
through which he peered down and
saw Paulo, the doomed prisoner, lying
asleep on the floor of the oubliette.
Sancha then mounted the stone steps
of which the queen had spoken. At
the top ho found the door her maj
esty had described. Sancha opened
this door—and stood within the se
cret chamber. The king and Godiva
had, up to this time, not yet entered.
And Sancha concealed himself behind
the curtains at the side of the couch
It was soon after the chamberlain
had thus secreted his person in the
secret chamber that the king and Go
diva entered as already described.
And now, maddened by the girl's
scorn of his kingly attentions, the
monarch of I rania seized her roughly
and smothered her face with kisses,
the maiden struggling desperately in
his arms. And Sancha, behind the
curtains, toyed with his stiletto and
awaited the opportunity to execute
the queen's will.
"Presently." he thought, "the king
will leave the gtrl to her own devices.
: Exhaustion will speedily bring sleep
j to her eyes. And then—then. I. San
cha, will silently steal upnn her—-and
she will nevermore awake."
The White Rose.
But now, in the secret chamber, the
| unexpected happened— unexpected, at
least, in Sancha's reckoning. For the
king, instead of tiring of Godiva's re
calcitrant ways and leaving her till a
time more propitious for his purpose,
made still further desperate love. And
again the struggle was on. Forth and
back across the chamber they fought,
the girl fighting not to live, Hut to
j die; for ever and anon she would
. make a desperate lunge with intent to
seize the dagser which the king wore
in a short scabbard dangling from
i his leathern belt. Rut ever and anon
the king would frustrate the girl's
i tragic design, till finally his majesty
[ caught the dagger from its scabbard
and hurled it far beyond the maiden's
Then came a further unexpected
happening. The king, in rage, opened
the door that revealed the stone
steps leading down to the room that
was over the palace dungeon. And
through this door the king dragged
Sancha, concealed behind the cur
tains, perceived that now indeed all
opportunity to assassinate the girl was
gone. He rushed from his place of
concealment and pressed the secret '
spring that opened, the panel in the
wall. Through this aperture Sancha
stepped into the king's apartment,
closing the painting behind him.
Then through the palace corridors i
Sancha hurried till he came to the '
door of the queen's own apartment.
This he entered very cautiously.
The queen was pacing the floor in ;
"The trophy!" she demanded
'Where, again I ask you, Sancha,—
where Is the bleeding heart.'"
"Alas!" replied Sancha, "this night '
we are doomed to be the victims of
many tricks of fate. Just as I was J
ready and waiting to do your bidding, I
your majesty, the king tore the girl [
from the secret chamber and thrust !
her down into the room that Is over |
the donjon. What his majesty's pur- '
pose can be, who can say? Mayhap

into the oubliette to suffer the fate

said the queen with fine scorn. "Fool! j
I will kill her myself."
j And with that she snatched the sti
i letto from the belt of Sancha and
swept from the chamber.
In the room above the dungeon the
king and Godiva were holding final
parley. Said his majesty:
"Here, sorceress of hell, who hast
riven the king with passion for thee,
shalt tnou remain till thy spirit breaks
and thy will disintegrates and be
comes as a supple twig that will bend
in my bands." •
And he flung her upon the iron grat
ing that looked down into the dungeon.
And there she lay inert.
"Look!" the king said "Down yon
der, at the bottom of this well of
death lies thy lover, Paulo. Behold
him—lying within the shaft of moon
light that strikes upon him from von
der hole in the wall—behold thy lover,
Godiva, in my power with death not
tar away. See that thou dost quickly
become more tractable and that thou
consentest to remain within the pal
ace as my willing guest—else thou,
I too, shalt be let down into this don-
J jon to join thy lover. But, mark
j thee, not until after thy lover's soul
shall have left his bodv and his bones
are picked by the rats.''
Godiva shuddered but made naught
of reply. And the king with a last
shrug of contempt for the girl who had
dared defy his kingly will, mounted
the steps that led to the secret cham
Godiva now called softly down to
the sleeping prisoner at the bottom of
the well-like dungeon.
1 "Paulo, my Paulo!" ehe called,
Paulo, thue called from sleep by the
voice he so loved, sat up and rubbed

his eyes. Then looked he aloft to
the iron grating and saw lying thereon
his dear love robed all in white.
"Godiva, my Godiva!" he called.
"How earnest thou in this place? Has
the king taken thee captive? Oh, my
Godiva, better that thou wert in thy

She produced from her bosom the
vial containing the potion given to
her by Hagar the witch
"Canst see what my hand displays
to thee, niy Paulo?" she asked. " 'Tis

is none. Hagar the witch gave to me
this magic potion that now will save
me from worse than death. I have

Paulo, then shalt thou witness trans

And the rose, as Hagar said, will

find a way to escape at last from this
place. And then, in thy freedom, thou
must take the white rose which will
be my very self—thou must take the
white rose, 1 say, speedily to Hagar
the witch and she will change the rose
back to Godiva, thy own love. For
Hagar alone has tliis power. And so,
my Paulo—see! I will come to thee!"
With that Godiva emptied out the
contents of the vial into her hand.
And from her hand she partook of the
powder. And she swallowed the magic
potion and lay upon the iron grating
still as death
And then, behold! The form of Go

Meanwhile King Leofric re-entered

the secret panel iu the wall and en
tered his own apartment, where hr
flung himself on a carved chair an
pondered morosely over th& way of

And now into the apartment came
the Queen Dulcinea. The stiletto she
concealed under her mantle. And the
fire of jealousy burned in her eyes.

king, who was startled as at an ap
parition, "thou hast brought to this

will help her to escape."
During this bold speech the queen
had been stealing closer and closer
to the secret spring beside the secret
painting. She now cautiously pressed
the spring and the secret panel swung
on its pivot. The king sprang to in
tercept, but was too late. The queen
passed through the panel and was
even now darting to tne door that
opened on the steps that led down to
the room above the palace dungeon
The king and Sancha followed.
Down the stone steps sped the
queen, even to the room with the iron
: grating. And all about she looked for
a glimpse of Godiva. But no Godiva
did her eyes behold.
The king and the chamberlain
joined her, both amazed and, for the
moment, speechless at the vanishment
of the lovely peasant girl.
"Where is Godiva?" the queen asked.
"Ay, where is Godiva?" the king
echoed. He called through a door that
led to the corridor of the guards. "En
ter, varlets!" he said And when two
guards had entered, the king asked:
"Hast seen the maiden Godiva pass
thy door, varlets? 'f so, thou shalt
die here and now at the hands
of my executioner. I swear it.'
"Nay, sire," the soldiers said. "The
door has been well guarded without
and we can swear, forsooth, that nei
ther maiden nor angel nor devil could
escape from this place without our

repeated, deeply puzzled.
They peered down into the dungeon
and saw that Paulo, the prisoner, was
alone. They saw not, however, that
Paulo at that moment hid within his
shirt t white rose, hid it with fingers
most tender against a heart throbbing
with love for that self-same white rose.
"Ay, 'tis a strange disappearance!"
the king said. "You, varlets, remain
here on guard, while others search
the palace. From moat to turret the
castle shall be searched, every nook
and cranny, till we drag forth the
Thereupon the king mounted the
steps, and was followed by the queen
and Sancha the chamberlain. And the
two soldiers remained on guard at
the iron grating.
And time passed. Hour after hour
slipped by and still the guards re- !
mained alone in the room with the
iron grating, till at last the guards
fell asleep and snored. And Paulo, j
below, heard the snoring and was well
"Now," he told himself, "is my j
chance to gain my freedom. I shall
escape now or die in the attempt!"
And securing a foothold in the crev
ices of the rock of which the walls
were formed and clingholds elsewhere
for his clutching fingers, Paulo the
huntsman began ascending the wall, I
lizardlike, toward the iron grating

inch by inch Paulo climbed upward
till at last he reached the iron grat
ing. How now to pass through this
locked barrier? How but with main
strength of arms long trained to feats
of strength? With all the brawn of
him he bent one bar to the right and
another to the left. And lo! now there
wag epace between these two bars
for the passing of the body of Paulo.
A moment later he emerged from
the grating and started for the door
of the corridor of the guards. But
Just then, unhappily for the two snor

On Paulo they leaped. But Paulo
was as skilled with fists as with
crosebow. Quickly he felled the sol
diers both. And next instant Paulo
was groping his way through the cor
ridor of guards toward an open door
through which moonlight streamed—
at the far end.
A few moments later Paulo -was fly
ing like the wind through the royal
park. Over the king's wall he climbed,
and then sped away toward the forest
on his way to the cave of Hagar, where
the witch would take the white rose
and restore it to the human form of
| his surpassing Godiva.
Juet at daybreak Paulo dashed into
I the cave of the witch.
"Hagar!" he cried, nig eyes trying
[to pierce the darkness. For Hagar's
fire burned not and the darkness of
j purgatory filled the cave.
Paulo groped about—and found Ha
gar at last. But Hagar was dead.
