The situation had grown out of the few duties which she per- formed in exchange for her rent--and had grown naturally, because when a person of general utility is found, he is generally utilized. Mrs. Penfield was finding hervelf in a quandary. She believed In ser-Ice, but sbe was also keenly conscious of home duty. "I'll bet I'll have to keep office hours before long," she told herself, as she entered her own kitchen again. She found three hungry young people awaiting her. "What are we going to have for supper, Penzle?" asked Crink, whose interest in this subject was constantly to be depended upon. "Well, my dear, we're going to have a grand meal. We're going to bare baked potatoes with chipped-beef yellow leg, the accidental bruising of which had been the basis of this gift. No one would have thought of givin8 her a whole fowl; but when she had been found lavishing sympathy upon this maimed specimen, the owner had bestowed It upon her with relieved carelessness. And Lettle had aeceptc( it eagerly. The half of a person's kingdom was as much as she ever expected, and that half considerably battered and tattered. The time had not yet cmue when Lettle would wonder why she was living; so far her brief years had be?n "filled with a desgrate struggle to keep that llfe exis(ent without regard to its purpose, and until recently there had never been anything but the merest scraps to do It with. "Awk I Awk :" complained the chicken. "Woof ! Woof !" worried the dog. "Shut up, both of you," advised Let- tie sharply. "My landy patience, ain't you both the limit? Keep still, hen, can't you? Don't you never want two legs again?" "Hello, spitfire. Where's your Uncle Jerry?" The child's black eyes flashed as she looked up. Instinctively abe dis- liked Frank Bosley, and the feeling was constantly being strengthened by his treatment of her as a superfluous thread In the fabric of humanity. She made no reply. "V,'here's your Uncle Jerry?" he re, pasted. "I don't know, . declared l,ettl briefly, tying the bandage into a bard knot. "Is he at home?" "Didn't I tell you I didn't know where he was?

A plan was ffringln Into being In her mind. She would do somethln for Penzle. More than once sho bad seen Penzle's face gr,w sad and troubled when this man anti Uncle Jerry went out of The Custard Cup together, and her lightning Intu- Ition had told her that Penzie dlsap- nroved of the friendship between the two men. Now here was a chance to show Frank Bosley how the family felt toward him." Then perhaps he would let Uncle Jerry alone. Penzle would be delighted. "You'd better go home," began Let. tie directly. She tied a string to the well leg of the chicken and fastenel the other end to a nail on the outside wall of the kitchen. Frank Bosley laughednot so much in amusement as in lazy defiance. "Winston!" he called, with his eyes on the 1oft. "Hoe-hoe! Winston!" Lettie turned on him. "What d'you men? Didn't I tell you he wasn't here.*" "You did not" denied Boley coolly, leaning against one of the clothes-line poles and smiling at her scornfully. "You said you didn't know where he was." "If he was here, rd know IL wouldn't IY' she returned, with equal scorn. "He ain't to home. Do you get It now?" Looking up, he gave a shrill whJsHe. "Hoe-hoe, there ! Winston !"

"I'm going to be a fine woman sometime. Penzie says I'm to be. SoW Frank Bosley threw back his head and laughed. Straightening to catch his breath, he suddenly bent forward, as tf Hap from merriment. Lettle watching, felt her rage rum to fear to cold terror. Wan it posslble that Penzie's love had held up a false hope to encourage her and that everybody else looked down on her? (TO B] CONTINUED.)

WALKER t MENTAL EXPLOSIONS F BY any chance you sbould fall Into the lamerltable habit of becoming truculent, peevish, ill-humored and sharp-tongued in moments of trial, take a new tack and head straight for the delectable port of good-will. Nothing is more detrimental to the Individual bapplness and success than mental hysterics, whether they be of a mild or severe form. Often, in spite of htnself, the victim of passionate out- bursts is plunged into a sea of trouble from which he cannot extricate him- self without loss of friends and self. respect. Men and women have fallen from high estates by allowing a burst of anger to sweep them off their mental balance and been taught a very tren- chant principle for future Judgment and action. In most cases, however, too late to be of any use to them. If you will look about you, you will ee them among the sad-faced and forlorn, eking out a bare existence In a lowly station from whic they are unable to rise because of their ungov- ernable spirit. When an automobile has been wrecked by a careless driver It serves as  warning to other but It falls to restore the car. Just so do foolish persons who have ruined their life prospects through Impetuous impulse serve as warnings to the observing and thoughtful And yet the world goes on, a large part of it unmindful of what is takin$ place under Its very eyes. The true conclusion Ls obvious: if you will apply the experience- of others to yourself, profit by their fol- lies and hold your spirit in check when it Is about to burst forth into a violent quake, you will have nothing to fear.

Remains of an andent village, the first portion Of which was discovered In 1904 when sewage beds were made, have been found recently during sew- age development work at Wisley, Sur- rey. The date of the village is consid- ered to be from 50 B. C. to A. D. 50. Investigations have been very dirt- cult because most of the site of the vil- lage was dug away In 1904. On the present occasion a few hut dwellings had been found.
