There were many things he wanted to say. He had -gone crooked where this boy must go straight He had erred, and the boy must avoid his errors, lie had cherished enmities, and in his age they cherished him. And now-"May I ask you n question, sir!" ' "What Is Itr "Will yon ten me abont Abraham Lincoln?" "Why?" The klny was awake tnongh now. He flied tbe crown prince with keen eyes. "Well.

But Bobby--that's the boy I met; I told yon about him--he ·ays he was the greatest man who *rer lived." **And who," askedjhe king, "do yon regard as the greatest man?" Prince Ferdinand William Otto fidgeted, but he answered bravely, "Ton. sir." "Humph!" The king lay still, cmil- ing slightly. "Well," he observed, "there are, of course, other opinions as to that. However--Abraham Lincoln was a very great man. A dreamer, a "visionary, but n great man. · Ton might ask Jflss Braitbwalte to teach you his 'Gettysburg address.' It is rather a model as to speech mating, although it contains doctrines that-well, you'd better learn it." "Yes, sir," said Prince Ferdinanc William Otto. He hoped- It was not very long. "Otto," said the king suddenly, "do yon ever look at your father's picture?" "Kot always." . : "Ton. might--look at it now and i ien. Td like yon to do it" ~ ! "Teg, sir." ' ' I CHAPTER X l l l .

Here eteae* an anntversarj there,are many hue two hucters crawled oVatomachs bere they huppeaed on the trU. Tucker found it first. His stumpy tail 'grew rigid. Nose to the ground, he crawled and wriggled through the undergrowtlr, Bobby st.hls heels. And now Bobby saw the'frail, footprints. It is true that they resembled those of heavy boots with nulls. But on tie- other hand, 110 one could gay surely that tire anil scfttks were not those of claws, Tucker circled about. The trail grow rooro exciting. Bobby had te crawl on hands and feet under an* through thickets. Branches had been broken as by the passnge of some large body. The eportsmah clutched his weapon and went on. An hour later tfie two hunters returned for breakfast Washing did sonicthiuf; tS restore the leader to .a normal appearance, but a wondering family discovered him covered with wonnds nnd strangely silent. "Why, Bob, where inve you been?" his mother demanded. "Why? I never saw so many pcfatches 1" , "I've been hunting," he replied briefly. "They don't hart anyhow." Then, he relapsed Into absorbed silence. His mother, putting cream on his cereal, placed an experienced hand on his forehead. "Are you sure you feel well, dear?" she asked. "I think your head is a little hot" "I'm all right, mother." She was wisely silent but she-ran over, in her mind the spring treatment for children at home. The blood, she felt, should be thinned after a winter of sausages and rich cocoa. Shtf mentally searched her merlicine case. A strange thing happened that day. A broken plate disappeared from the upper shelf of a closet, where Pepy had hidden It; also a cup with a nick in it similarly concealed; also the heel of a loaf -of bread. Nor was that the j end. For three days n sort of magic ; reigned ia Pepy's kitchen. Ten pom- ! j toes, laid out to peel, became eight ; Matches nnd two ' ends of candle : walked oat, as it were, ou their own. ! feet A tin pan with n hole in it left I the kltchun table and was discovered j hiding in Bobby's bureau, when the i t Frauleln put away the washing. | !· The governess protested that he heard nothing she told him, and was absent-minded at his lessons. But as she was always protesting about something, no one paid any attention. 1 Bobby drew ahead on his pocket allow- . atice without question, and as his . birthday was not far off. asked for ; "the dollar to grow on" in advance. \ He always received a dollar for each i year,' which went into the bank, and n i I dollar to grow on, which was his own I I to spend. ' I I With the dollar he made a number of purchases--candles and candlestick, a to? pistol and caps, one of the masks for the carnival, now displayed in all the windows, a kitchen knife, wooden plates, and a piece of bacon. Now and then he appeared at the scenic railway, abstracted and viewing with a cal7ulating eye the furnishings i of tbe et-gine' room and workshop. From there disappeared a broken chair, a pfece ot old carpet, discarded from a car, and a large padlock, but the latter he asked for and obtained. His occasional visits to the railway, however, rtiund him in old Adelbert's shack. He iilled his pockets with charcoal from the pail beside tbe stove! and made cautious inquiries as -to methods of cooking potatoes. But Ur; j pall of old Adelbert's gloom penetrate'! nt last even through the boy's abstraction. "I hope yonr daughter is not worse," he said politely, during one of his visits to the ticket booth. "She is well. She recovers strength j rapidly." "And the new uniform--^loes It fit you ?" · "I do not know,' 1 said old Adelbert grimly. "I have not seen It recently." t "On the day of the procession we ore I an going to watch for yon. ni ten you · where we will be. so you cau look for ! us." j "There will be no procession." Then to the boy old Adelbert poured I | out the bitterness of his soul. He j i showed where he had torn down the ' i king's picture, and replaced it with one-i 'of a dying slag. He reviewed his days In tbe hospital, and the _ hardships through which he had passed, to come ; to this. The king had forgotten his brave men. During the rest of the day Bobby ·'considered. No less a matter than the sharing of a certain secret occupied his mind. Now, half the pleasure of a secret is sharing It, naturally, but tt.should be with Hie right person. And his old playfellow was changed.' Bobby, reflecting, wondered- whether i old Adelbert would realiy care to join ' his pirate crew, consisting of Tuc.ker; and-blmself.- On the next day, how-! ever;-he put. tbe matter to the test,] having resolved that 'old Adelbert; needed distraction and cheering. i "You know," he said, talking through | the window of the bootb, "I think j when I grow up I'll be n pirate." I "There be worse trades." said old' Adelbert, whose hand was now agninst every man. i "Arid hide treasure," Bobby went on.! *'In a--In a cove, you know." -Bobby; edged closer to the window. "I've got | thu cave already." j , "So!" "Here, in the park. It Is a great! secret" "A cave--here in the park?" "I'll take you, if you'd like to see tt." Old Adeibert was puzzled. The park offered, so far as he knew, no place for a cave. It was a plain, the site i of the old wall, and. now planted in j grass and flowers.' He himself had i : seen it graded and sown. A cave 1 ; i "Where?" v j i "That's a secret. But Til show it to · ! you, If you won't tell." j j Old Adelhcrt agreed to silence.. i Until midday, when the railway j opened for business, the old soldier .' was free. So the nBxt morning, dne precautions having been . taken, the two conspirators set off. Three, rather, for Tucker, too, .was now of I the band of the black flag." ' ' ··'·' Outside the thicket Bobby hesitated. "I ought to blindfold you," he said. "But I guess you'll need your eyes.: It's a hard place to get to." j Perhaps, hud-he known the difflcal-' tie* ahead, old Adelbert'' .would not j have gone on. /And, bad lie turned I back then, tlie history,, of. Pa certain .kingdom of. .Europe ;would have been · changed; Maps, too, ; and school books, and the life story of a small 'prince. But he went on. Stronger than hla young guide, he did not crawl, but bent aside, the stiff and ungainly branches of tbe firs. He battled with the thicket, and came out victorious; UA1SE YOUR OWN FORK AisD , T T T - C , O HELP WIN WAR FOE T3E ALICES Steadily Success i H u n d r e d s of people In this county vlcinit.}' arc now numbered amend ; t h e ]ja:ients uf ' THE UX!TKD .SPJCCf ALISTS VTtia TI«H Here :if THE BALTIMORE SE E V E R Y TUESDAY,-- KACH : VRKIv. !

STRAUS Preitdent Amtricatt Stxifty jor -Thrift "There It Is! 1 He was not so old, then, or so feeble. His arm would have been strong for the king, had not-"There It is!" cried Bobby. Not a- cave, It appeared at first. A low doorway, barred wHh an Iron grating, and padlocked. A doorway In the) base of a sfde wall of the grate, nnd I so heaped with leaves that its lower half was covered. Bobby produced a key. "I broke the pad lode that was on it," be explained. "I smashed it with a stone. But I got another. I rilways lock it" Prolonged search produced tho key. Old Adelbert's face was set hard. On what dungeon had this boy stumbled? It was strange. ' Bobby WHS removing the leaf-mold with, bis hands. "It was almost nil covered when I found It," he said, in- (lustriocsiy scraping. Tbe door swung In, silently, as though the hiages had been recently oiled; as indeed they had, but not by | the boy. ! "It's rather dirty," he explained, j "You go down steps first. Be very careful." He extended an earthy band and led the old man down. "It's dark here, hut there's u room below; quite a good room. And I have caudles." Truly, a room. Built of old. bdclc and damp, but with a free circulation. of air. Old Adelbert stared about him. It was not entirely .dark. A bit of light entered from the aperture at the head of the steps. By it, even before Bobby had lighted his candle, he saw the broken chair, the piece of old car- ! pet, and the odds and ends tbe ohlUi \ hud brought. Old Adelbert felt cr_ritmsiy shaken "None have visited this place since TOI have been here?" he asked, "I don't suppose any one knbwi about IL Do you?" "Those who built It, perhaps. Bui it is old, very UL It is possible--" He stopped, lost In speculation. There bad been a story once of B passageway under the wall, but ht recollected nothing clearly. A passageway leading out beyond the wall. through, which, in a great siege, e messonger had been sent for. help. Bui that was a passage; while this was a dungeon. The candle was at lust lighted. II burned fitfully, illuminating only a tiny zone In the darkness. "I need n lantern," Bobby observed, "Theresa a draft here. It comes from the other grating. Some time, when you have time, I'd like to see what's beyond it. I 'was Uipd of nervous about going aione." It was the old passage, then, of. course. Old Adalbert stured. as Bobby took the cundle rind held It toward K second grated door, like the first, but taller. A close, examination revealed to ok'! Adelbert two things: First, that n brick-lined passage, apparently in goo(l| of the committee, or of the terror.thr.t repair, led beyond, the grating. Sec-.drove her Lo Ksirl. For, iH the worst ond, that It had been recently pot iu happened, it ho failed her, and she order. No unused passage tbis, but j must do the thing they had set her to one kept in order and repair. For; do, Karl must never JSQOW. TJmt card what? ! she must pttiy nluiie.

For example we arc told by the waste disposal conservation section of the food administration that 25 cities in the United States throw away ia garbage $2,400,000 worth o'f grease, $1,000,000 worth o£ fertilizer, 8,000,000 pounds of glycerin, and 200,000,000 pounds of soap making material. In 29 American 'cities with a population of about 17,000,000 garbage to the amount o'f 1.200,000 tons is wasted each year. This waste would be sufficient to produce 70.000,000 pounds of grease worth ?S,500.000 and 150,'JOO tons of fertilizer valued at $2,250,DOO, There are 25 cities -with z population of over 5.000,000 that could by establishing reduction plants save $!,000.000 worth of fertilizer and $2,400.000 worth of grease annually. ~ of 100.000 and ican garbage (most of vvi:ic!i now is wasted) would produce 120.COO.OOO pounds of norlr vsiudl al $20,000,000.

These deplorable instances o!' waste can not be directly charged to individual lack of thrift. Thci ooni- aiamty a- to blame, although it ir the perogativo of any citizen to io*H itiafce a movement for public gar-' bage conservation. Another example of waste. which.- can be prevented by individual aiten- . tion has bera brought to light in oar biff hotels, restaurants and dobs: In: Neir York Chy alone it is s»d there is a daily waste of beef amoontsng; to 5,000 pounds and 1,000 doeec eggs in clarifying consomme. One pound of meat and bones are used in making- 2 to 4 cups of consomme and the whites of 4 to S tRgs »re -wasted fa clarifying 1 15 cups. The egys and meat often are thrown into the garbage C 1 "!. It would seem, therefore, that the use of consomme should be discouraged, especially by those, in fashionable places where waste such as here is recorded is apt to take plstct We are doing- well in the practice of thrirt. But there is room for improvement To win the war and make America: a pcrmaricntJy thrifty nation requires. constant individual attention. and' study. j . Possibly few of those who' read these Hnes today have thought hcre-l tofore of the vast amount of waste) involved in the two instances referrcdj to.
