()nO witnessing th(, Jerry Wlnston's int:macy with Fr.uk Bosley she would have many Intercmv ing details to contribute. But when she merely listened and added nothing they were surprised, !ncredulous, even resentful. From hour to hour further items were unearthed, dragged Into the small community, and shared gener- ously in an impromptu council of all the tenants. The Bosleys had not been popular; their downfall had therefore a atlsfying element that lent pecuUar Iuqlt:.ncy to everybody's version. Blood was a-tlngle with keenest stimulation: the air was cloudy with exclamations. Nor was there any perceptible dimin- ution the next day--or the next. And scarcely had the driveway gossip thhmed a trifle wln Mrs. Penfield's thoughts were given a vastly different tnrn. Mr. Crashaw came to interview her. tie had seen Mrs. Weatherstone; he had seen the hangings. He offSred Mrs. Penfleld a hundred dollars in cash and a small block of stock in l}ls laundry association In exchange for her formu- la and a certain amount of supervision until its use should be mastered In the various laundries of which he had charge. "It will mean." he told her, "about a thousand dollars a year--more, as the business grows---bnt you can be as- sured of that amount." It seemed a fortune'to Mrs. Pen- field. She had difficulty In tempering her Impetuous delight Into a seemly business attitude. To have a steady income, aside from her usual earnings, would mean a different life for the children. After Mr. Crashaw had gone, she began to plan exactly what that life should be. For one thing, she would surely be Justified In giving up the management of The Custard Cup, which was rapidly precluding other duties. With significant Juxtaposition, the fact that Mrs. Sanders was leav- Ing her fiat, flashed into her mind. Mrs. Sanders was going to live with a cousin In Sesame county and help take care of a large family of children. Mrs. Penfield could rent that fiat. It would be the pleasanter because a friend had lived in it. The'e would he conveniences" a more satisfactory num- ber of rooms. She would keep up her laundry work, but under far easier con- ditions. There would be school books" clothes, plenty to eat. a fund slowly growing In the bank. Oh, everything would be different--and safer.

"We could give you a room, Uncle Jerry. We COuld take the dining room for---" The color came up in his bronzed face. "Well, II don't know, Car'line." he stammered. "It's bully of you to think of it, butbut I hope t can't that is---well, we'll talk It over." He tramped rapidly out of the alley. 'qAelL I sure wonder what he means." thought Mrs. Penfleld In sur- prise. She watched. Uncle Jerry went up Miss Hapgood's steps. "Oh-h-h !" she breathed. She ceased to wonder.

(Prepared by the United States Depaxtmtt of Agriculture.) Statistical studies Just completed by the United States Department of Ag- rlcultnre, showing meat yields of vari- ous classes of aRJmals in proportion to live weight, bring out dearly the importance of good breeding. In the work conducted, all the prLuclpai kinds of market live stock were in- cluded, the grades varying from com- mon stock to animals slaughtered in the carcass competition of the Inter- national live stock exposition. Fig- ures were obtained from a number of government sources and from the packing industry. Good Breeding Show= Its Value. The difference in dressing yield for various grades of cattle ranged from 48 to 66 per cent, meaning that that proportion of the animal was the dressed carcass. For sheep and Iambs the dresalng yield varied from 42 per cent for common market ewes to 58, per cent for International show weth- era. The figures for swine show dressing percentages ranging from 75 to 8,5.8 per cent. The relatlvely hlgh figures for swine are de in part to the fact that the skln and head com- ,monly remain on the carcass. The In. terlmtlonal show animals in each case ate chiefly pure bredse fed specially to Produce an ideal carcass.
