It is a real whole wheat cracker, not made of flour. It is the whole wheat cooked in steam, shredded and baked. The crisp, flavory shreds of whole wheat encourage thorough chewing — and the more you chew it the better it tastes. Full of nutriment and easy to digest. Delicious with butter or soft cheese. Tastes better when toasted in the oven to restore its crispness. At your grocer's Made by S THK SWRKDDKD WHEAT COMPANY I Slngum Fulls, N. V.

The rain eeiuwrt at« nlii'HIMly as it bad slarled, but sllll CorrlKUil felt no desire to jleep. Tim moon, emerglnR smlilenly from a cloud bank, threw its sickly rays in nt the window, bathing Hie room In a ghoully IlRltt. There came IL <iueer, scratching noise on Ihe woodwork outside and the animal on the veranda round Its video. It bPKnn with a low Rrowl, Inters persed with short, sharp liarUs, then bounded into the night, barking furiously. "Ob, Hell!" said Corrlgon. He parted the, curtains with one baud anil g/oped on tho tablo at the side ot the hed for clgnrcts and matches. As ho paused, nursinp Ihe flickering flame between bis fingers, something made him look up. He saw tho shutter swing wldft npriii—then bang to, as if propelled by an unseen hand! The match burned his fingers and he dropped the, glowing end clear ot the bed. Under tho window I'anus growled and snnrled In a paroxysm of canine fury; the scratching on tho outer wall had become more pronounced. C'orrlgan vaulted from the bed and crossed the room with bare feet. Ho pushed open and secured the Rlnitter, then leaned out ot the opening, peering In all directions. Tho dog ceased harking and came toward him. wagging Us tail. It placed one paw on a beam that supported lha structure and gazed toward the roof, wblulng softly. "What Is It, old son?" demanded Corrignn. As if in reply, the yellow dag, Its head In the itir, began running along the sldo of tho house, sniffing eagerly. "A dam rut!" declared the plant er and went back across the room for his slippers. Corrlgan's "cellar" was a window, less apartment which lay between Jllllett's room and his own. A sensation ot ncuto thirst reminded him of lis proximity. He. tightened the sarong nt his waist and opened the door. It was pitch dark within and the sea of bottles parked to- gp4her on the floor necessitated careful maneuvering. Placing one hand on the partition, ho stopped nnel groped for the neck ot a bottle. His fingers closed over a human hand—as warm and as large almost as his own. "The Devil." cinne n familiar voice from thB darkness, ".Not. at all, my lear Millet." returned t'orrlEim, recovering from his surprise, "Observe bow great minds think alike." "Oh, Lord." laughed the other, "Couldn't, think for the life of me, who It could be. The dog woke, me, y'lcnaw. Beer seemed to he indicated—and T pushed la here." "(let n light. We'll make an occasion ot |t—on the veranda." "It'll be pretty wet out there," said Millet, thrusting a bottle into each of the. side pockets of tho packet ho had slipped mi over his pyjamas, "There's a small river flowing under tho door of my bedroom nl the moment." He hacked until his heel kicked against a hurricane lamp, picked li. up and Ht it. Corvlgan replaced ope or two of tlie bottles that had tallen and picked his way gingerly to Millet's side. They passed out Into the living room and paused nt the doorway which led on to .the broad veranda. As Millet had predicted, it was wet ami clieerlcss outside. The canvas of ihn heavy Sandargan chairs wore black with moisture, Ihe cane krosf were enjptlly unusable. Thir Keen odor of damp earth bung everywhere. The assistant set the lamp in ihe ct-nii-r or the sitting room table ami pushed a chair toward Corrl- uaii. They sat down simultaneously and Mlllett opened one of the buttles. "Slii;|>." said Corrigan reflectively, "is one. of lliose things 1 can't iifford to loan. That. doK'U have ID go—there's nothing else fur it." "What d'j'iiu propose doing with | it!"

He can do with a dog." "It'll como back." Mlllett emptied his glass nnd sat hack la his chair with a sigh of contentment, "Then it'll have to be shot," declared Corrlgan with an air of conviction. "It'd be a pity. What Tra» It barking at tonight?" "A hlessed rati" Mlllett whistled. "Was that all? Did you sea !l?" Corrlgan grunted. "I didn't see the. damn thing—because It had already taken refuge la the ataps. There are tons ot 'em up there. Panus chased II tip the wall. When I looked out he was circling the house like a lunatic, looking at the root." Mlllett shook his head. "I 'anug Isn't a ratter." he 3c- clared obstinately. "He doesn't know ono from an elephant! Now tho little fox terrier the kmnl clerk's acquired Is different. He's dead Siuts on rats. I was down »t the store yesterday and he turned out three or lour. One ot them ran right under Panus' nose—and he wasn't tho least bit Interested. Have some mora fceer?" Corrlgan pushed forward hia glass. He didn't answer for a moment. He was trying to figure out what mysterious agency had caused tho shutter of his window to swing shut. "Dogs are peculiar creatures," pursued-Milett warming up to his subject. "Some have a hankering for rats, others go In extensively for birds: Mrs. White's Hltam tan- cies wild pig. I knew a dog once," "What's tho particular hobby favored by our yellow friend?" broke In Corrlgan suddenly. "Monkeys!" announced Xlillett solemnly. "You want to see him busy after we've had a good burn!" Ho bent down and tucked the ends of his pyjama trousers Into tile socks. "I suppose these blood-sucking Insets'I! get used to ma in time," he added. (To Be Continued.)
