Ann glanced at Cecily and saw that Rosalie and her allure did not matter—that nothing much mattered. Cecily was glowing with a blurred radiance that Ann understood. It came along with love, at first, and it came because all out- aide things were blurred and softened and made beautiful—for the time being.

For a moment, as she looked at Cecily^ pity and fear thumped together la Ann's mind. It was an intolerable fusion, and she rejected It, and tried: to listen to Rosalie, who was telling the old Irfay-day story, with Cecily substituted for the heroine In place of Ann, "Our dear son Jbbn was working toward bis doctor's degree, and he bad accepted aa assistant professorship—urn—something of the sort, in Harvard that year.

Oil Drum Makes ; Good Brooder Stove Home Made Stove Prove* Successful in Brooding ;; Young Poultry *'• An old 50-gallon oil drum can be; used to a good advantage in making a brooder stove, states G. W. Knotf,' Extension poultry man, University of Arkansas College, of Agriculture. A foundation for this drum is made six bricks long by four and one-half bricks wide in a house 14 feet square. Set the' foundation for the drum out four feet from the rear wall and di- ( vide the space equally on either side.j This foundation should be built two; bricks high. To^get the oil drum inj shape to make the brooder, mark off aj a 1 door on one end of it. This door* should be 12 by 14 inches. In the cen'-J ter of this space mark of a 4 by'6-inch| space and cut it out, then split Ihej corners out to the 12 by 14-inch space,| bending these flanges out square withl the end of the oil- drum.
