Connell, sheep and wool extension specialist of the Pennsylvania State College. This clip will be taken off in the next six weeks. To increase the value of this clip, Connell oflers a few timely suggestions. "Always have the sheep dry before shearing. Damp wool can cause trouble for either the producer orthe '.purchaser. The shearing floor should be clean. Remove all foreign material from the fleece before rolling." "Tie each fleece separately, flesh side out, with paper twine. This twine can be obtained from most hardware stores and from local merchants. Sisal twine should not be used. "After the wools are shorn they should be stored' in -a dry place. The basement should not bo used for this purpose. "If these few suggestions are followed the wool clip will be more profitable to producer and purchaser," says Connell.

These two galleys each Were fitted with two masts with largo lateen sails, and one heavy gun. The progress made In the construction of the galleys Is shown by the following extract from a letter written by Major Craig, May 25, 1798: "On the 19th instant, the galley President Adams was launched and is now at anchor in the- Allegheny.

The "Pilts'burgh Point Eoat Yard" was established in the spring of the year 1803 by John Sumrall and Joseph McCullough, whose ad vertisement bears date of April 25, 1S03 and ran for some time in the Pittsburgh Gazette, as follows: "The subscribers, boat builders, having removed from McKee's Port to Pittsburgh, inform their friends and former customers that they in tend carrying on their business in a very extensive manner. They are now laying in a large quantity of the best timber and boards, so that all who please to favor them with their custom may depend on being supplied with boats of the best kind, and on the shortest notice. Orders for boats of any dimensions will be punctually executed by the public's humble servants, John Sumrall and Joseph McCullough." This yard was carried on for some time. Joseph McCullough, resided in what was then Known as the " House", because the old block house built by Col. Boquet, in 1764, was then part of it. The rest of the building was later demolished, but the block house still stands, being now the property of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The boats built at this yard were flatboats, or "broadhorns", as they were sometimes called, and lteelboats; but no ships nor steamboats were built here by Sumrall & McCullough. BUILDING OF WAR GALLEYS AT PITTSBURGH Affairs between the United States and France assumed such a threatening aspect, in 1797. the French Directory takingi a hostile and insolent attitude, that Con-Kress began making preparations for war. Under the provisions of the laws passed at that time, the first vessels capable of making a Bea voyage ever built at Pittsburgh were completed, under the superintendence of Major. Isaac Craig. . These were two galleys, named respectively the President Adams, In honor of the President of the United States, and the Senator Ross, in honor of the United States Senator representing the Pittsburgh district in Congress, 1 of The U.

' A young man in a yellow roadster comes speeding through the park of Mooring Castle, England, he is of slight build tut from his clothes one knows him for an American. His ring brings Symonds, the butler, who is not at all sure his mistress, Lady Mooring, will see the young man. "Tell her my name is Roy T. Burney, of Ifeio York, and she'll see me," is the response. And Lady Mooring I cancels an important luncheon en gagement, to the butler's surprise. . Terror stricken and with despair in e her eyes, the meets Burney in the library. INOW GO ON WITH THE ST0RY.1 ROY BURNEY'S words brought Lady Mooring to life. In a stiff manner, as if every movement were an effort, she crossed to his side, standing with a hand on the table, aa though in need of some outside support. ) Burney saw she was on the verge of a breakdown. After a sharp glance at her, he crossed to the door. Seizing the handle he opened it suddenly. There was a quick little scuffle outside, but by the time he was over the threshold Symonds was a couple of yards away, staring intently at a barometer, i "See here," the young American said, his voice full of cold anger, "if ;I catch you anywhere near this door again, I'll kick you out. Do you get me?" From . the gallery immediately above there came a burst of explosive laughter. "My dear fellow, Symonds was not listening. Oh, dear no! He was only indulging in a little bending exercise,1 so good for embonpoint." , With an offended air the butler stalked off. Roy Burney looked up. Over the carved gallery a young man was leaning, a tall, dark, handsome youngster in the early twenties. For a moment the two stared at each other. Closing the library door, Burney took a step or two forward so that he could see the speaker more clearly. : "I suppose you're 'the heir," he said tn a voice suddenly bereft of all emotion. "So I've been brought up to believe. And, my good friend I call you friend because I notice we have tastes in common if ever you should pander to your desire to kick Symonds's posterior, don't do it with out letting me know. I wouldn't miss that act for a fortune. I just can't stand 'that fellow and his creepy, crawly ways." i "The heir's" confiding, boyish man ner made Burney's set face relax a little. "If I catch that big stiff round here gain, he'll get it hard and long. Ever since I set foot in the place he's been trying to find out why I'm here." "He won't dare come, with me on the lookout And should curiosity get the better of discretion, I'll stamp so, and give you due warning that the enemy Is abroad." Lord Hilary Fenton stamped three times on the wooden floor of the gallery. ' Am It unaVwlA fn tfta YitrMiAl ntn Burney continued to stare at the youngster. "By the way," Hilary went on, "if X can put a simple question without running the risk of chastisement, why are you closeted with the mater, and why am I told to go out to lunch un- chaperoned?" There was the briefest of pauses. "I'm here on business," the young American answered in a slow,' cau tious manner, "concerning an old in- restment of your mother's. If others get to hear of it, they'll reap the benefit, not her." Well, let's hope there's money In It, then perhaps I shall get a new ear. My mater Is a darling, but strictly between ourselves, my pater, A most estimable old bird In other respects, doesn't believe in the young having too much money." A smile quivered oa Burney's pleasing mouth. "Then I'm arraia your rttser wouldn't approve of ma Nov I mutt get back to your mother."

I His unemotional manner steadied her. Rather shakily she crossed to mirror. He followed, and stood watching her as she smoothed her hair and touched up her face. "You must have had a terrible time," he remarked. , Helplessly she turned towards him. "My life has been one long purgatory. But we can't talk here." "My ' automobile Is outside. Yeu get a hat and coat and we'll go to some spot where there's no chance being overheard. I won't have you hurt or harried." "You . . . you're breaking my heart with your goodness," she whispered. tears catching at her throat "I . . . ought to have known, but I was afraid to think clearly." i "What ought you to have known?" asked, his voice soothlnir. tender 'ftnri TinaaAflnlvA On his shoulder aha laid a whit hand, that trembled.

That devil of an Amos Lamovlt is the dragon In your case.! Just wait till I get at him and he'll! know it" he finished, his soft vole suddenly savage. "Oh, my darling, be careful," she implored, "don't go and get hurt Just . . just when I've found you." I "Don't you worry , about that,' Honey. Roy T. Burney Is very well' able to look after himself. Now, I what about the little old cloak and' bonnet?" i With an effort she pulled herself together and went from the room, i Some minutes later Symonds was watching the yellow car as It streaked through the park. v r ' , , :-:;:::i:;::i' "Buying For Five Stores We Sell For Less" Woodward Furniture & Carpet Go. 510-512 McKean Avenue Charleroi ".You tee I'm here '' mind.

Burney went back to the library. carefully closing the door behind him. Like a statue Lady Mooring still stood where he had left her. As he came towards her she look at him a deer might look at a boa-con strictor. "Well?" he asked, on pausing at her side. "What have you to say 7" "Nothing." y . The word came out like a gasp of pain. : bo you .don't deny it 7 jT. "It would be useless." m Then, suddenly, she . milled , herself together, looking at him with scorn1 and'eontempt, , "I suppose you'll have to be bribed into 'silence too?" , Her words made a spasm of pain cross his face.

Then she collapsed into a chair, and, burying her face In the cushions, started sobbing in a stifled, heartbreaking manner. Burney leant over her. stroklnr one of her slim, bare arms tenderly.
