No "War Birds" Wanted Farm Woman Devises 'Hog Killing Weather' CLAYTON, Ala.— (jp) —"Hog killing weather"—those crisp, cold days of fall" and winter—have been scarce in the south this year, but it hasn't worried Mrs. J. E. Farrish. When, ;the .weather man failed to come through with the proper temperatures for chilling freshly killed hog meat, Mrs. Parrish turned her attention to" an old drum. This, filled with'.ice,, provided the right temperature for chilling hams and shoulders. The county farm agent, F. C. CJapp, heard about it, and spread the news to other farmers in the county.] Mrs. Parrish's cheap, . simple and] satisfactory method, he said, has been a great help to all who have tried it, and farmers have been able to cure their meat properly in spite of -the mild winter.

It will furnish green pasturage after Japan Clover and cthef pasture plants are burned brown by the hot dry weather.

If it Is too poor to grow ordinary crops, Korean Lespedeza will ever it up and stop It from washing, and gradually build it up to the point that other crops may be grown. : The hay is very leafy and analyzes right along with, alfalfa. An analysis of pasture specimens showed more protein than alfalfa being pastured and more carbohydrates than Bermuda grass being pastured.

The evening had been the most wretched o£ her life. She studied the brightly col ored subway cards with eyes that fllleil and refilled with tears. Lona Clendenning had forced her to see what before she had refused to ad mit. Association with Larry had been folly from the beginning. It was late now to mend that original mistake, but mend it Ellen would, Larry should not be permitted to ruin her life, to take all her thoughts and dreams to himself, to take all the best that was in her and to give nothing in return. Nothing except casual, irresponsible, foolish pleasures that left her discontented and dissatisfied, straining always for something more. In her mind she framed the po- llta little note that would tell him of the unavoidable duties which prevented her from posing further. It was to ba a cold and impersonal note, a final note, with nothing be- tweeu the lines for the cleverest to read. At U o'clock she reached the Brooklyn apartment. Molly and Mike were long asleep. Ellon cautiously tiptoed into her bedroom. Before undressing she wrote the note to Larry. Jt had cost fce? a few tears, but Larry would aever guess that, He would never know the bright fancies a»4 she was not asleep whon Myra entered and turned on the lights. "Awake, Ellen?" alie askefl softly. Ellen kept her eyes shut a mln ute and then opened them. "Why'd you run away from us?" Myra demanded. "We got there only about 10 minutes after you left. Larry seemed rather worried about you." "He needn't worry any more," El lea replied quietly. , "What is it? Did something hap pen?" When Ellen did not answer Myra went ou viciously, "I bet that Clen- dennlng woman said something. We didn't stay, so I barely met her, but if I ever saw a natural cat that woman is one." Ellen turned her head away from the glare of the light. She stared at a patch of starry sky cut out between tall buildings and crisscrossed with clothes-lines. "Don't l^t's discuss it, Myra," she said with a catch In her breath. "I don't feel up to it now. But I'm never going to see Larry again." CHE was wrong. She saw him the next night at Dreamland. The long spell of heat liad been broken by a welcome rain storm. Rain had fallen all day and was still fall- ag in tho evening. As a result Dreamland was practically deserted except by stray gentlemen who lucked In to avoid .the downpour. The rest oil the meager crowd was mado up of a few ardent devotees of dancing who could have been tept away from Dreamland by noth- ng short of death. In spiteiot frequent absences from he dance hall—or perhaps because )£ them—Ellen had become popular vith those habitual patrons. All of ho moil wanted to dahte with the girl HO difficult to obtain for a partner, the girj who was so different rom the others, so standoffish and o impersonal. She was blue and discouraged as he danced. Her heart was heavy How long the evening was! How he hated these men who paid 10 ents for a dance and expected a irtation as well. A sense of in- ustice oppressed her. Twenty years Id—and she might as well have een 50. Yes, ehe was miserable. She was dancing when Larry awe in. Ellen, trembling, saw him weep the floor with, bis e/Jger eyes nd felt her heart stop when those yes met hers. He had started cross the floor beat on snatching er from the arms of her partner •«•— fortunately, the in u sic The dance was ended, 'la, lite something to eat, . in.o.uired her partner. V tbj#fc you," SUteg ,nj,urw,ljr»<J. " «waas«4 to p.u,{; quickly, reaching out to claim her cold hands. "I had that note- of yours this afternoon. It's all a lot of nonsense. I won't let you throw me down like that." "Maybo you'll have to," she had begun when he pulled her, half resisting, out on a rain swept balcony. To the left the lights of Broadway flared and subsided and flared again. Below, lyco shining wet beetles, taxicabs rushed to am fro and honked discordantly. "Unfor the'ooping," he told'her "and you'll not get wet. I had to talk to you a minute—alone. We can't use the time fighting because mother's waiting In a cab downstairs. So you'll have to postpone till tomorrow telling ma what' a black-hearted villain I've been. I want you to meet mother—that's why I came up. You and I will have tea—" his eager voice hesitated a moment "—because there's something I must tell you alone. Then we'll sco mother in the evening for dinner." "All right," said Ellen faintly. She felt tho cold dash of rain against her face, across her bare arms, "You're a darling." He leaned forward. His arms were about her, hia eager, searching mouth found her lips. Again and again they kissed in the rain, "What do you think of that!" Larry exulted and then was gone. • * « TPLLEN stayed for a long time with tho wind and with the rain. When she went inslda her /eyes were still bright with remembered IcisBos, her heart kept up its hard and happy beat. Oh, the miracle of love! What an exciting and thrilling and colorful thing life was. She loved the rain outside, the music and the gaiety inside. Thero was nothing critical now about her mood. Slio sparkled and shone and danced like one possessed. For she knew what Larry meant to tell her tomorrow! It could bo only one thing—there could be only one reason he wanted her to meet his mother. The next day was Saturday. Ellen went through her duties at the store iu a happy daze. A thousand times she sought the mirror to look at her bright eyes and glowing cheeks. She looked often at the clock as well, convinced that 12 o'clock would never again iu her j life bo so long In coming. I Indeed, long suffering Loreiie be- i came somewhat irritated with her assistant. "You'll never nake a buyer if you aon/t bone up on your fashion muga- ?iaes more carefully," Lorene said Sharply. "I'll bet yoji'ye turned a (Josea pages witliom seeing a tbtag. **» f^tWilf m seep to sae u the clock," ia«f ted gustily, ised. "But I—I havo a date an* 1 I'm sort of excited." , "If I told Steven that you'd gona! blind because 'you were lunching, with him I'm sure he'd be flattered," Lorene observed dryly.. "I must say you're not much help as an assistant." Ellon opened her mouth but left tho words unsaid. She did not correct Lorene's impression but after that she paid more attention to what she was doing. She succeeded iu surprising Loreno by the sudden intelligent interest she took in misses'fashions. At 11:60, how. over, she closed the magazine without a sigh, replaced the dresses aha had taken from stock and began tho delightful process of arranging her perky folt hat at its most becoming angle. Lorene snorted and, left the room. TPLLEN was dressed for tlie street, satisfied at last with her appearance, when a messenger boy knocked and then pushed through tho bait open door. ( "Sign here," he said. •' •'"" "'••••'£) Ellen signed and, wondering, took tho envelopo from him and tore it open. She read a few lines, a few sentences. She felt the paper crunch in her hands and watcned the walla of tho room recede. Larry's letter fell to the floor. Every word was seared in her mind. He had written: "Ellen, dear: I'm afraid our e&« gagemont today is all off, I don't know when I'll get to see you again, my dear. Things are in such a mess, I know most of it is my own fault but that doesn't mend matters, "Please try to understand until I can explain. Won't you? The pos> j ing, I'm afraid, is off too for tha I present. But please believe that the minute it is possible I will see you again. Larry," Ellen mechanically reached for her handbag and for her gloves. She was alone in the room. She could hear herself sobbing and felt a desperate, agonized pain in her heart. She knew that she could not go out on the street with tears raining down her face. She fumbled for her handkerchief and sat down. ^She sat there for a long time. When shu rose the tears were gone. She felt everything was gone. Her preparations for tho afternoon were useless now. It was hard to remember tho shining eyed girl who had powdered and primped auci spent such an endless tima Using a hat. She had no place to go and so she went home. Slia bought a newspaper to read ou the subway. When aho turned to, tha society page she found wbut somehow she had «v pected there.
