Maple sugar and maple syrup offer
suggestions for all sorts of delicious
, desserts that are quickly and easily
concocted. Ore very tine maple sweet
is made by addiug cocoauut. It is ealltvl
maple-cocoa nnt pralines. Mix one <up
of resh grr.ted cocoauut with two cups
of maple sugar or syrup, add one-lialf
cup of cream and two tablespoons of
butter. Boil the mixture until it bub
bles and foams. Beat it well and pour
, onto a buttered platter. When it cools
mark iuto squares.
Maple sauce is liked wherever a sweet
dressing is needed; beat yolks of two
eggs until thick, add one-half cup of
maple sugar, one half cup of cream.
Stir until the sugar dissolves and place
over hot water until very hot through.
This may be used hot or cold.
Maple frosting, tilling and maple
cakes are other ways of using the sweet
and beside these maple ice cream, maple
parfait and candy add sweetness to the
joys of life.

quietly. Their interest in the game
was deep, possibly due to the waeer

as blue and hard as arctic ice.
"I'll see you comfortably broiled
first," replied Mallow, as he tossed five
sovereigns to Craig. "Now, what else
i is on your mind?" >
j Warrington took out the cigar band
I and exhibited it. "1 found that in my
room last night. -You're one of the
few. Mallow, who smoke them out
here. He was a husky Chinese, but
I not husky enough. Makes you turn
a bit yellow; eh. Craig, you white-liv
ered cheat? You almost got my money
belt, but almost is never quite. The
letter of credit is being reissued. It
might have been robbery; it might
have been just deviltry; just for the
sport of breaking a man. Anyhow, you
didn't succeed. Suppose we take a lit
tle jaunt out to where they're build
ing the new German Lloyd dock?
There'll be no one working at this
time of day. Plenty of shade."
For a moment the click of the balls
on the other tables was the only sound.
Craig broke the tableau by reaching
for his glass of whisky, which he
emptied. He tried to assume a non
chalant air. but his hand shook as he
replaced the glass on the tabouret. It
rolled off to the floor and tinkled into
"Nerves a bit rocky, ch?" Warring
ton laughed sardonically.
"You're screeching in the wrong
Jungle, Parrot, old top," said Mallow,
who. as he did not believe in ghosts,
was physically nor morally afraid of
anything. "Though, you have my word
for it that I'd like to see you lose every
cent of your oil fluke."
"Don't doubt it."
"But." Mallow went on. "If you're
wanting a little argument that doesn't
require-pencils or voices, why. you're
on. You don't object to my friend
Craig coming along?"
"On the contrary, he'll make a good
witness of what happens."
"The chit, boy!" Mallow paid the
reckoning. "Now. then, come on. Three
rickshaws!'' he called.
The barren plot of ground back of
the dock was deserted. Warrington
jumped from his rickshaw and divest
ed himself of his coat and flung his
hat beside it Gleefully as a boy Mal
low did likewise. Warrinpton then
bade the coolies to move back to the
"Rounds?" inquired Mallow.
"You filthy scoundrel, you know
very well there won't be any rules to
this game. Don't you think I know
you?" Warrington rolled up his
sleeves end was pleased to note the
dull color of Mallow's face. He want
ed to rouso the brute in the man, then
he would have him at his mercy. "I
swore four years ago that I'd make
you pay for that night."
"You scum!" roared Mallow, "you'll
never be a whole man when they
carry you away from here."
"Wait and see.'"
On the way to the dock Warrington
had mapped out his campaign. Fair
play from either of these-men was not
to be entertained for a moment One
was naturally a brute and the other
was a coward. They would not hesi
tate at any means to defeat him. And
he knew what defeat would mean at
their hands —disfigurement, probably.
"Will you take a shillinrr for your
fifty quid?" jeered Craig. lie was go
ing to enjoy this, for he had not the
least doubt as to the outcome. Mai
low was without superior in a rough
and tumble fight.
Warrington did not reply. He
walked cautiously toward Mallow.
This maneuver brought Craig within
reach. It was not a fair blow, but
Warrington delivered it without the
least compunction. It struck Craig
squarely on the jaw. Lightly as a cat
Warrington jumped back. Craig's
knees doubled . under him and he
toppled forward on his face.
"Now, Mallow, you and I alone, with

Mallow, appreciating the trick,
swore foully, and rushed. Warrington
Jabbed with his left and sidestepped.
One thing he must do and that was to
keep Mallow from getting into close
quarters. The copra grower was more
than his match in the knowledge of
those oriental devices that usually
cripple a man for life. He must wear
him down scientifically; be must de-

From ordinary rage Mallow fell Into
a frenzjr; and frenzy never won a ring
battle. Time after time he endeav
ored to grapple, but always that left
stopped him. Warrington played for
his face, and to each jab he added n

"Count that one for Wlieedon's broken
knees!" "And wouldn't San admire
that? RemetiiJ>er her? The little Jap
anese girl whose thumbs you broke?"
"Here's one for me!" It was not dig
nified, but Warrington stubbornly re
fused to look back upon this day
either with shame or regret. Jab-jab,
cut and slash! went the left. There
was no more mercy in the mind back
of It than might be found in flie sleek
felines who stalked the Jungles north.
Doggedly Mallow fought on. hoping
for his chance. He tried every trick
he knew, but he could only get so

Some of his desperate blows got
through. The bezel of his ring laid
open Warrington's forehead. He was
brave enough, but he began to realise
that this was not the same man he
had turned out into the night four
years ago. And the pain and igno
miny he had forced upon others was
now being returned to him. Warring
ton would have prolonged the battle
had he not seen Craig getting dizzily
to his feet. It wan time to end it. He

head toward the insensible Mallow,
'tell him that 1 give him that fifty

He trotted back to his rickshaw,
wiped the blood from his face, put on
his hat and coat, and ordered the re
spectful coolie to hurry back to town.
He never saw Mallow or Craig again.
The battle itself became a hazy inci
dent. In life affairs of this order gen
erajly have abrupt endiugs.
And all that day Elsa had been !
waiting patiently to hear sounds of
Warrington in the next room. Never
could she recall such long, weary
hoi»rs Time and again she changed
a piece of ribbon, a bit of lace, and
twice she changed her dress, all for
the purpose of making the hours pass
more quickly. Whenever Martha ap
proached Elsa told her that she
wanted nothing, that she was head
achy. and wanted to be left alone.
Discreetly Martha vanished.
To prevent the possibility of miss
ing him, Elsa had engaged the room
boy to loiter about downstairs and to
report to her the moment Warrington
arrived. The boy came pattering up
at a quarter to six.
"He come. He downside. I go,
"No. That will bs all."
The following ten minutes tested
her patience to the utmost. Presently
she heard the banging of a trunk lid.
He was there. What was she going
to.say to him? The trembling that
struck at her knees was wholly a new
sensation. Presently the tremor died
away, but it left her weak She stepped !
toward his door and knocked gently
on the jamb.
She heard something click as It
struck the floor. (It was Warring- I
ton's cutty, which he had carried for i
seven years, now in smithereens.)
She saw a hand, raw knuckled and
bleeding slightly, catch at the curtain j
and swing it back upon its rings.
"Miss Chetwood?" he said.
"Yes . . . Oh, you've been hurt!" ,
she exclaimed, noting the gash upon
his forehead. A strip of tissue paper
(in lieu of court plaster) lay soakinz j
upon tnat wound —a trie* learnea m

lamely. Then he added eagerly: "I

Two Coal Yards?
First—because we are able to give our customers
better and quicker service. Tile one yard is located
on Allison Hill, at Fifteenth and Chestnut streets.
The second yard is in town, at Forster and Cowden
streets. This makes shorter hauls.
Second—and this is the main reason we can
handle more varieties of coal. The "Hill" yard is on
the Heading Railroad and the "in town" yard is on
the Pennsylvania Railroad. Furnace conditions are
not all the same. "Reading Coal" will give the very
best results in some houses while in others "Penn
sylvania Coal" is what is required.
If you have had any trouble with your coal let us
send the kind that is required.
