Stevens, assistant forester of .the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. ••:.-' Mr. Stevens declares'that a considerable amount of tree butchery hikes place each year because of the misguided elforts of well meuninj; pcr- , sons who work hard and all but spoil ;. their trees. ,:•' He lays clown three basic rules to be adhered to in pruning .shade trees. 'They are: ••••' "1. In pruning a tree never leave _ f stubs b.ut remove tjie branch or limb '•'.-ill 'its origin. * "I 2."Ncver allow the branch to strip ,thc bark Ijelgw the cut as it fulls. "3.

Outside of ; these one must consider the shape and ; form of the tree as it |s ;md the shape, ;' and form which is desired. > ; . If the form desired"can Iru sWimcd ' fi'om the tree as it is, careful .study • will indicate which limbs should be rc- • moved lo obtain (he desired ell'eet, hi: : points out. The guiding principle lo be borne in mind in choosing is (hat once ! a Jinib is removed it cannot, be rcplac- . ctl and Ihe renioval of large limbs ai- 1 ways leayes large gaps in the crown.

One of Ihe olher girls—the red- hiiiml one with Ihe sultry eyelashes and sulky mouth—was saying lo her, "How should I know? We thought you'd sent her as a itanct-in for Lucille."

Itiside the small oilice beyond, Miss O'Dare shut the door and faced Constance curiously. Al close range she seemed older llian she had upslairs—a little tired; but very much alive and sure of herself, and exquisitely groomed to Ihc last detail. Her eyes, which were a clear, cool green, were penetrating, bill not entirely unfriendly, "Now," she began quietly, "perhaps you had belter begin by telling me who you arc, and jusi what you think you're doirig here. 1 happen to remember," slic went on, "although Mr. Anlon did not know il, (hat gray coat you wore in here could not possibly have been listed for the show today because p j|. •old several days ago. It was the only one of its kind, and it has'not been returned to the store.'" "You sold it—yes," Constance said. "To me." "Do I understand—V Of course some of our competitors have used inspired tactics from time to lime"—Klsa O'Da.rc's eyes were like green ice—"just whom are you representing 1 ;" "Myself."

This is actually hcmorrhaglc or black measles. Occasionally l!ier<? are exceedingly virulent cases in which all of Ihc body is severely infected and in which the patient dies in a few days.
