Thursday was Mayor Bedigbt's day of attendaiuc upou Margaret Fams- worih, >*ho prosecuted the case ugulust him on the morning of his arrival, ishe t -'ulcred the arena after an earnest < oafcrenco with "Judge" Vining, who se»-med unusually dls trait and worried. "Mr. Bedight," began Uje lady attorney, in a professional tone. "1 want to get some balsam for 8 pillow thlf morning. Do you know the tree when you see It?" -y^B— I've been in the North Woods on many a vacation and am familiar with the flora, and fauna of the coon- XijI I amat your service," leBponded tbj^jaayor. — l —.— , —l They i?l ont on foot aldnr k patbr way that led into the wood. Once inside the forest it wound in a trail like that the calf made, through spnice and hemlock, poplar and maple.'with now and then a white birch adding a touch of vivid contrast to'the green. The girl, an enthuBltst, was walking ahead and babbling of tbe nature pictures along the way. Suddenly Bedight felt something hit htm In {be back, as though a pellet: thrown from close range, lie turned Inquiringly. From a clump of brush along the trail a woman's band waved at htm and a white paper fluttered to the path. Tnmlng. the mayor t ^traced his steps. The messenger crouched low and Bedight, having secured the message, toi^ched bis Angers tO 'hiB lips and wafted her a salutation, chaste and replete jvlth appreciation. , And then from ahead came the surprised call of Miss Famsworth. "Hurrycautioned a voice from, behind the clump of greenery. "Coming," cried Bedight. turning and forging ahead through the wood. A pair of phcasanta ~ arose with drumming whirr from beside tbe path. "There?*' exclslmed the mayor, accepting the birds as the fbundatlon for a clever ruse, "you've frightened them away." "Oh, why didn't you tell meT* reproached tbe girl, getting a fleeting glance of the brown beauties as they floated off through the trees. Bedight. with the note clutched in his hand, made reasonable apologies for his thoughtlessness and the girl, uuFUspecting, led on, ehattering de- li.uhtedly. It was a day of days to be in the wood and youth is ever buoyant and gay. Plainly the girl was in tuno with the mood of the time and the place, and like the beatitudes about her, sought to be congenial and natural. Tfie man felt himself pleased with her, for he, too, loved tl^ solitude and the hanponies of the forest. Presently she sighted a scarlet tanager and ran ahead. Bedight. waiting for the opportunity, unfolded tbe slip of pat )er. In a woman 's handwriting this warning was written: "BE CAREFTTU SHE IS TRYING TO TRAP YOU." Bedight smiled and tucked the note in his pocket. Miss Farnsworth was sittingj upon a fallen monarch of tho wood] when he caught up with her. In her hands she held a lichen that had taken her fancy. Of tbe party at Mine Host 's hotel, no girl was prettier than Mar garet Famsworth and few as Intellectual. Vivacity and spirit predomlnat- 'd and as' Bedight looked at her he did not bclItUe her ability to make things Interesting for him. She sprang to her feet as he drew near, and ran after a big brown butterfly. Bedight sat down on the log and waited. Suddenly he beard a scream, the voice of a woman In pain. Miss Famsworth sat upon the ground 'holding her ankle In both bands. Her lips were tightly drawn ind her face gave evidence of pain. "What if it?" questioned Bedight, apprehensively, going up to her and taking hold of her arm. (To Be Continue.!.) >Vt»M.i> KOO.ST.S I.M.MUO{ATIU.\.

The simplest I'onii of battery requires three factors to make the electric spark—(zinc, copper \ and an acid.) " ' The human brain also reijuires three vital elemeiit.s to* i)ut forth.

Therefore, in order to keep a i>;oo<i workini? brain or atld to iis power, one absohitely must food which contains albumen and Plitjsphate of Pota.-^ii. Why not do a bit of thinking now? Water and albumen exist plentifully in every-day food—Pho.^phate <jf is often lacking.
