TEE DAILY FREE PRESS " : FHzhugh planned well in making Artie his "social valet." . After that .Monday Conference :in his broker's office he had surmised' the relations •_ tetween himself and Otis would > thenceforth be unamicable: His sur- •mlsal proved, correct when, not long .afterward he met Otis and his wife one Sunday on the drive. He doffed .his silk hat with a Chesterfleldian .gesture—and was rewarded 'for. his .courtliness .by being ignored more pointedly than If he bad been an utter stranger. ' :'.:.". Clearly after this there was but one -way for him to see Kathleen, and that ,:was by the aid...of Artie Sparkle. Fitzhugh. never required a second attempt 'to scale, the citadel of : any ' home, no matter how "exclusive" that ' home might bo. .He immediately became "the sensation" wherever he •went. -What with his distinguished appearance,, his flrtshins wit, his skill at repartee, and, above all else, his gift of adapting, himself .readily to any role and playing it with avidity, his popularity was. of a..wondrous growth. He never lacked an audience, nor did he ever fail to keep one hanging on his ' every; word. But Fitzhugh had little time to be a society pivot . Though he was become, a lion he seldom went out to roar. Only, when he believed he should see Her would he accept any of the invitations. These were busy days for Fitzhugh, .days filled with suspense and excitement and, fever. By the end of the year his entire capital was tied, up In spring wheat, which was torching and plunging like a sinking •hip; and every downward 'swoop drove his fortune upward. Though .Fitzhugh's money was all on paper he •was growing rich with galloping leaps, -•nd already he was planning a deal to follow, that might send his fortune soaring, toward the million -mark. It was in the beginning of March, •while the Metropolitan Opera company was playing a two weeks' engagement at the Auditorium, that he received (through Artie) at his club an Invitation to a box party given b'v Mrs, Otis. -' "Well, well, tell -us how. you managed it." "I told her," sputtered Artie, choking 'with mirth, "I told her I had a frightfully aristocratic fellow putting *ip at my place who was all the talk ct Lunnon. Mondays and Wednesdays ..are her opera nights,, don'tclie'r know, ..and she'd just'been telling me that a -chap \vho was to have rounded out her party tonight had failed her at the Just moment, and then I mentioned Shis frightfully aristocratic fellow,' "I Have Loved You," Murmured He Very Close to Her'Ear. "I ain • waiting for my 'answer/' he whispered. She made.DO sign that she heard. "If there's any hope, if I've a ghost of a ehan.ce, smile when you look at me again. You needn't speak. Only smile." Some friends of Mrs. Otis, making an entr'-acte call, had peeped in her box to say • "how'do," and Mrs. Otis, dimpling and gracious and stout (and watching her daughter from the corner of one eye) stood gossiping with them a few moments In the corridor entrance. As the lights came on Kathleen had leaned back in her chair, pressed her lovely shoulders against the cushions and breathed deeply. Now she very deliberately walked to the- seat her mother had vacated, and, with her back partly toward Fitzhugh, she en- giiged herself in airy conversation with Artie Sparkle and the third man .of the party, a middle-aged bachelor named Checkering. Nut once had she glanced Fitzhugh's way. Not-once did she notice his existence. ' There is one thing at which even Ihe most determined of lovers will snip, and that thing is Indifference. Imlil'ferenee raises a wall there is no scaling. "Fool! . . . I.-QO! that I wns-ever to imagine she cared! ... A girl like her—whsit Idiocy!" lie determined that when the act ended he would 'excuse hjmseif on some pretext and rush into the streets, and T saw her prick up her ears "and! and "' alk and wnlk . as n ? had walked before I left she told me to bring him ° D - thls Sam6 aif?ht t!lree years °S°along.

She'll be dreadfully surprised, too." •'.o"-No-. dsubt Sparkle, you've got the ; train of a .Napoleon. Going home/ Then I'll take you out In my car." ' They left the Union league club to. and entered Fitzhugh's new 90-horse power automobile glistening •t tie curb. - The perennial, favorite, "La Bo- Jietne," ..Tyas sung, that evening. In •pite of Mrs. Otis (who had borne Artie's "surprise" with commendable composure, sending only one terrifying glance at that rash joker), Fitzhugh contrived to sit near Kathleen, amd by.the.time "Eodolfo" and "Mimi" lad chorused "Amore". he was subtly making love to her, saying little bj ( •word . of mouth but speaking volumes with eye and mien. It was nenr the end of act two, and te did no't know whether "Mimi" waa making merry with the Bohemians in the Quartier Latin or dying of starvation in "Rodolfo's" 'attic, and he did . not know whether Jirs. Otis was watching him or discussing with the • Jady nert her a corset display -in Michigan avenue, that his hand found Kathleen's and smothered, it in a burning pressure. "I have loved you," murmured he, - very" close to her enr, "for three years. Today, in fact, is the anniversary— the second of March. Three years • ago today' I found this"— from under j his cuff he slipped a dainty handker- ' chief of 'exquisite lace and dropped it in. her .lap. "I loved its owner then. J love her now. I have always loved her. I always shall love her. Everything I have I owe to her." • She picked up .the bit of lace, bent her eyes on it. The war^u color had crept from her cheeks, leaving them, if lie could have seen, as white as -her arms § and shoulders 1 — an exquisite, . fine^grainied white as "plire .and as. 'beautiful as the petals of a m : ilk-whlte ' " '' ' ' ' rations had gone for naught. He thought of Esther. But all at' once he sat up very straight, and his deep-brooding melancholy slipped away from him. His sinewy fingers spread, then clenched quickly—his familiar battle sign. Was he, Daniel Randolph Fitzhugh. to be lashed into oblivion by a girl's indifference? He was 'not aware act three had closed until the roar of hahd-clapplrig apprised him of It. Automatically he Joined In. As the lights came on he heard Artie's voice: (To be continued) CHEST CLOGGED UP WITH HEAVY GOLD?

(Prepared,by the United States Depart•'. . ment o£ Agriculture.) According to tlie census of 1910 there were ;2,90G,525 ducks,-in the Onited . States'^ -valued at $1,567,164, showing a decrease in 'number of nearly .40: per/cent as compared with j 1900. It should be stated, ^however; that the animal census of 190Q was taken June 1, and that-of 1910 April 15, which fact would considerably re^ duce the ' above percentage,' although only fowls-three months old -or 'over were reported-on only 7.9 per cent qf the farms in the country and nre most numerous In the following states', arranged according to -their, production : Iowa, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Tennessee, Iiidiiinii. Kansas, Oklahoma,' Arkansas, and Ohio, the number ranging from- nbjml 225,000 head in Iowa to 100,000 in Ohio. New Tork is the only one of hese states- which shows an' Increase n the number of ducks, while nil the ithers show a marked decrease. Lons Island, N. Y., contains a number of large commercial duck fcinns ' which' apparently are .quite, "successful. It would appear, therefore, that commercial duck farms are increasing somewhat, while the production of ducks on general farms as a side issue is. decreasing, especially in the middle West. ... There are 11 standard breeds of ducks which have been admitted to the American standard of perfection. These may be divided into three classes: (1) the meat cla,ss, including the Pekin. Aylesbury, Muscovy,' Rouen, Cayuga, Buff, and Swedish; (2) the egg class, which includes the Indian Runner; and (3) the ornamental class, composed of the Call - • i ' the Crested White, and the Black Bast India. The common or so-called "puddle" dunk is kept on many farms In middle. West and South and is generally of small size, a poor layer, and an undesirable type of market duck. Excepting.the Muscovy, all of our economic breeds _of_ ducks are said to Large Duck Farm on Long Island. -' ottglnfttM Trom tlie Maiiaru, oi- common wild duck. . • A boost of 25'to 30 per cent*in thef price of food is anticipated by. restaurants, so will -someone please tell the man who is getting alone now on co£ fee going TOO WEAK TO DOilTOING A Serious Feminine Illness Remedied By LydiaE.Pinkham's Vegetable • : Compound.
