Poor Pa By CLAUDE CALLAW "The only time Ma ever brings me back any change is when she's no mad she's about to burst." (Copyright, U27, Aitocltted Editors, Inc.) SDeatbg winter use. They are also highly ornamental. Of these the Chill and Tabasco are well known for their extreme heat.' Steeped In vinegar they give fiery sauces. Other small varieties are red cherry, celestial, red Japan cluster and Creole or bird's eye. These are all hot, and the mistake should not be made of putting them into anything where heat Is not desired. Give the big sweet peppers two feet apart in rows three feet apart. They need staking as they mature, as they blow over easily when laden with fruit. Keep the soil well stirred around them. The number of peppers matured depends upon the care of the plants. It is an excellent idea to pick the first peppers when they are half grown to encourage free fruiting, as the plant has a habit sometimes of stoppirg to mature one big fruit before going on with others. This is a trick of the cucumber, also, so the first cucumber is picked by the expert gardener so the vine won't stop producing for its first offspring. Mr. and Mrs. O.

A simple way to amuse any baby and induce activity if it Is needed for development of the tiny limbs, is to tie a small, round bell around the child's ankle. The tinklin.T sound delights him, he cannot get it Into his mouth as he would if put upon his wrist, and he soon learns that kicking makes pretty music. Thus it is more useful than a rattle could be, besides. It is not eternally falling out of the crib or eluding the baby hands. The above Idea is typical of the many practical and economical susr-areatlons found in the booklet, MIOO Ideas for Mothers," which yon can secure for 1 2c In stamp from The Times' Mothers' Bureau, Room 340. 44 South Dearborn street, Chicago. 111.

"IRISH HEARTS," with May McAvoy, la a Warner Bros, plcturlxa of this CHAPTER ONE The Locket Killanmaul crowns the hills above the sea a good day's walk from Knockbotherum. Below, awash In the low tide, half a dozen fishing smacks ride perilously near to the black rocks of the shore line. The village looks to the west, and at sunset, when the sea becomes a meadow of golden red, the adven turous youth of Killanmaul dream dreams. In the heart of the sunset i lies the rainbow gold of opportU' 1 nity; beyond the horizon lies Amer- I lea. And since '48 the flower of 1 Ireland's youth has sought and won laurels of nrosnerifv and hannines. I- Tin lanl nf TJKorrir I W.V,,. ! T"1 V, T 1.1- (-" . The Irish Free State remains Erin, and the Irish still venture forth carelessly, romantically, dreamily. Youth does not change with politics. Youth reads fairy tales in clouds and hears the call of other lands in the restless waves of the sea. Emmett Murtougn was dissatisfied. He had outgrown Killanmaul, he believed. Little there was for him in this village in which his forefathers had lived and had died content with their lot, thought the Lord knows there was never too mucn ana not always plenty I0r needs. THIS was not to De Ior Lmmeu Murtougn. He "vould go to America, the land of Plenty, ! Thw There were other reasons for Emmett's discontent. He had been the beau of Killanmaul. His blue black hair and his deep blue eyes. 'There was Sheila Kildare. dls sturdy figure and the songs he sang they had proved Irresistible to half a dozen colleens who had hoped for a wedding ring. From Killanmaul to Knockbotherum the farmers' daughters along the way had heard his voice in the night as he tramped his way homeward. Many the pretty miss there was who had passed the time of night with this gay young devil of Killanmaul. And some of them bowed their heads now when he , passed with his eyes straight forward and his chin In the air. There was gossip. Indeed and indeed young Emmett had no right to play fast and loose with the girls of the county. The old women knew and the fathers of moonlight-mad daughters began to hear and to wonder at the downcast eyes of their Marys and Annies. At the village Inn, kept by the talkative Widow O'Far-rell, there were murmurings. Emmett liked it not. Marriage to any of them was not for him. To be tied down, Indeed, with u bit o land and a cow and a pig or two and the bother of "childer" no; it was not for Emmett Murtougn. Over there, across the horizon, were riches and glory. Of course, now, there was Sheila Kildare. What would he do about her? Sheila who laughed when be tried out his bag of tricks upon her and who looked up into his eyes with all the love of ber young heart when he told of his dreams and wooed her as one who would give her the ring and the name. A brave little baggage was Sheila! As Emmett mused over his wooing of her he felt his cheek reminis-cently. A strcng girl with a temper! The sting of the blow she had ttmplanted there that night when he had forgot himself and Sheila smarted now. How could such a girl be so old-fashioned, the Murtough wondered; wanting to stay in Killanmaul and fearing to go into the West; content upon the run down farm of the Kildares. A good piece of land it was and with right working could be made into a profitable holding. But farming was not for Emmett Murtough. Besides Old Tom Klldare did nothing any more. The weeds grew rank over his potato vines, and Sheila could not attend to it alL If the farm were in good shape even the Murtough would consider It, but It was not for him to slave and sweat In the field. Across the sea there was a man's chance, the road to riches. And Sheila well. Sheila would forget Yet the Murtough did not want RASPBERRY' SHERBET Raspberries, 1 lb.

A jug of the "crathure" to keep him in spirits! Old Tom mourned his wife; and well he might. It was she who had cared for the farm and who had brought forth from its soil the living for Tom and the little Sheila. Tom Klldare had a been a handsome man and easy with the blarney. He would have made a great politician, so the frequenters of Mrs. O'Farrell's Ino had said with wise nods oTer their glasses. Had he not denounced with sentences ringing of ancient days the cruelty of England? He had Indeed. But never did he venture forth In a fishing smack and What would he do about hert" seldom was he seen with a hoe la his own fields. The fate of Ireland was nearest and dearest to Tom Klldare during his good years and now that the good years were on the wane it was too late. So Sheila carried the burden of the Kildare farm and cottage and all Its content There are fairies In the deep woods of Killanmaul. Only the i good at heart may see them but they are there dwelling at the roots of great tree's and dancing upon lacy ferns In the silver moonlight There is not a child born in the countryside but that the fairies foregather and upon the wee one confer the gifts of fortune. And, the more lowly the home the greater the gifts. It Is the way of the fairies of Killanmaul. Now the fairies see far In the future; nor do they consider only the moment when the wee one first looks into Us mother's eyes. The prosperous cottage of today may be the poverty hut of tomorro-y and the fairies, wise in their goodness, be stow their gifts as the child shall need them. Well they knew Tom KilrTare and his blarney and who can say that they did not know thst the good mother of Sheila would pass away and that Sheila must have courage and bravery and goodness to contend with life. These gifts they beetowed upon her, the blue eyed baby who was now the active head of the Kildare home. Sheila dreamed of the fairies. But never had she known' of their benefactions until that day or the Fair at Knockbotherum Not the oldest oS. the hundreds who attended t a harvest fair ad Knockbotherum knew of her origin,1 this wrinkled and weazened old woman who played upon the super stitions of her clients.
