ADVENTURES OF THE TWINS. •y Oilvi Roblr«i •artefl. THE RIDDLE LADY ARRIVES. "It's the prizes," fhe * xclalmed to Mrs. John. "Hello, Nancy and Nick," called Jack and Jill when Daddy Gander's magic dust-pan had settled down obligingly before the front porch of tho House-That-Jack-Built. "Hello!" cried the Twins, jumping off the dust-pan and hurrying up the steps where kind Mrs. John, Jack's mother, waited in the doorway. Daddy taander tucked his magic dust-pan under his arm (for It had shrunk again Into a proper-sized dust-pan) and called out, "I'm going home to get tidied up for the party. What time is it to be,-Mrs. John? Mrs. Goose and I don't want to be late." "The Aiddls Lady Isn't here yet," answered Mrs, John, "and when she comes I suppose she'll have to rest awhile. 1 think two o'clock will be about right. It's to be a garden party, or rather an orchard- party, I can't get all tho people Into our little house. Everybody will be here." "Tffey surely will, when there nre riddles to guess," laughed Daddy Gander. "Good-bye." No sooner had Daddy gone than the Riddle Lady arrived In her coach and four. After her came a footman carrying a large box. "It's the prizes," she explained to Mrs. John. "What Is a riddle without a prize, I'd like to know." "Do come In and take off your things," urged Mrs. John. "The biscuits and tea are getting cold. And I would like to get through, and the dishes cleared up before the company starts to come." "Of course! of course!" said the Riddle Lady hastily. "Here I am keeping evoryhody waiting." "Well, as for that," said Mrs. John setting the chairs around, "I suppose evoryhody will be keeping you waiting after while." Well, everything went along very nicely, and after while lunch was over and the dishes cleared up and the guests began to arrive. When ^everybody was there— oven Sleepy Head and Slow and Simple Simon, the Riddle Lady gave out her first riddle. This was It: "Sometimes I'm mado of leathers, Honietlmes I'm made of silk, Bometimes I'm black as furnace coal, And sometimes white as mtiK, "Sometimes I'm made of paper TAat brings tile dally news, Sometimes of parchment painted o'er, With birds and flowers and views. "Sometimes I'm carried proudly To theaters nnd hulls, But something just to decorate Tho muntleplece and wallH. "But mostly Chinese use me. Or maids In far Jupan, There 1 B no doubt ynu kimw my name, You've often seen n—." That was the riddle and Nancy guessed it right, off. "It's a fan, Isn't It?" «he said quickly.' it was, and she got the prize. The cutest fan you ever saw with a tassel on the handle. •(To be Continued.) C. J. Angoll has half a section or summer-fallowed wheat down In Meade county, near Plains, that. Its probably four Inches high, it Is reported. Most of tho wheat which now covers the fields of southwest Kansas with n velvety blanket of green Is from two to three Inches high. It has been many years since wheat looked as fine at this time of year as it does now. Dow Cubhage, of Stafford county, southwest of St. John, had 125 acres of corn this season which he reports averaged at least 3 .'i bushels per acre. The farmers back In Iowa, Illinois and other states further east, prepare their corn ground In the fall, so last fall Cub­ hage decided that lie would try some of his corn ground that way, but ho found that fall plowing for corn does not work iu Stafford county. \Al least tho corn ou the ground he prepared in the fall yielded only about half as many bushels to the acre as the ground prepared In the spring. Mr. Cub- bago gives as the reason, that the ground prepared In tho fall was entirely too loose and that it was more susceptible to dry weather. D. C. White and Bert Smith have shipped in from Texas large herds of cattle to be pastured on their wheat near KIngsdown until ready for market. Jim Torrance and Charles Grostf are pasturing cattle they bought in Kansas City. A. H.
