The origin of the flre could not be accounted for by Mr. Clayton. He had done his milking, and carried the lantern back to the house with him after finishing. His attention was called to the fire a little while later by his son, Harold. Mr. Clayton rushed to the >arn and when he opened the door the flames leaped out. It was too late* to rescue the stock which had succumbed.

In answer te her stammering explanations he bluntly accuses her ef offering Uusla t» him as a bribe (or her brother's life. Her- rifles', the girl urges her mother tt com* away with her, but she refuses. Lorls summons a soldier and triers him to take Mrs. Krassln outside while he talks with Musts. __ fContinued from Last Wednesday.) Mrs. Krassln locked herself In htr own room and did not appear for two or three days. She felt the aversion In her daughter's manner, and was all the time trying to divine exactly what It meant. Sh« conld think of several elements In the girl's thoughts which might make her averse to Intercourse with her mother; and at the beginning of this phase of their relations she came to the conclusion that this mystery of Musla's state of mind, which she felt that she must fathom, was only to be solved by observation of her daughter's behavior, of her ways of spending her time, of her comings and outgoings, especially the latter. She made such arrangements that she knew where Musla was at al times. She watched the girl when she went out of the house to walk abou the grounds; she grew agitated when Musla approached the gates; she seemed to despair when she turned back from them toward the house and when she came in and went abou her ladoor employments, Mrs. Krassln beat her breast with mingled grle and anger. Some certain things she felt tha she knew: that TJya's life hung on Lorls' decision; that Lorls wouli spare that life If Musia Interceded a effectively as she could; and that In the absence of such Intercession, thel visit to Lorls had made the boy's cas hopeless—that they had robbed him o any chance of liberation which he ha theretofore possessed. --w,. "Unless the price is paid," she ~" over and over to herself, "we- murdered him r'Turns-Is uuthinsr to dol There Is no other way out! Why does she hesitate? Ob, If I could only talk to her!" She had heard of people being shot at sunrise; and for an hour every morning, she prayed that Ilya might be spared: prayed to God that the dreadful ransom might be paid before It was too late. Never before In her life had she been so religious. . She spent hours trying to visualize what had taken place between Musla and Lorls In Lorls' reception room, after she herself had been turned out of it She recalled every phase of Musla'g appearance and behavior, her eyes reddened with weeping, her refusal to look at her mother, her aloofness now. Were these things manifestations of maidenly shame? Were they signs of Indignation and aneerT Why had not Musla looked prettier? She could be very charming, Mrs. Krassln bitterly thought, when nothing depended upon it; but now— Ilya 1 nyal Sometimes she would find herself crying the name of her son aloud. ,Id" qnesttonTier foul Hw*ys ihe would return to her seat, knowing hat to do this was Impossible. She was qnelled by a sense of the fact :hat no mother had «v« said such .hlngs to a daughter—that according t« the standards of the old life, she would be pleading or commanding the mpossible, the Inadmissible. This held her back; but the forms and conventions of a lifetime were equally powerful. Whatever happened, she could not speak to Musla about these Mattel's. Not now, not afterward If the girl did what was demanded by :lie new standard of duty which her •lother had set up for her, even If they should live together to the end •f their lives. She simply had no language with which to communicate to the girl her thoughts and desires. But she heard of the subconscious influence of mind over mind—that one will by concentration upon another could bend the servlent will to Its ptir- foses. She had read of hypnotists who had controlled the will of subjects, so that tha latter had been In- Buenced even to the commission of crimes. She thought that there was a book on this In the library; bnt she shrank from going down t« refer U It. She recalled, however, a lecture she had once heard on hypnotism, and the Methods described; so she lay awake at night trying to concentrate fcer will on Musla's will, commanding her over and over; and when the found her own thoughts were straying from this strange thing, she prayed for strength to prevail. What more could she do t» sway the girl's mind, If she were so false and rebellious as to betray her brother and her mother? She recalled Mnsla's fondness for Shakespeare, and dimly remembered that In one of the plays there was some such demand OB a girl as this which with all her soul she was making upon Musla. She studied carefully a collection of the plays which she had Sasha bring her, found and rend "Measure for Measure," and was chagrined to tears when she read the great speeches of Isabella, rejecting the demands of Angelo. She derscored Angelo's speech: Then must your brother diet and drew black Delia's answer: lines erasing Isa- And 'twere the cheaper -way: Better It were a brother died at once, Than that a sister, by redeeming 1 him, Should die forever. a "been enfblleil In ^conspiracy to bring his daughter to the standard of conduct described In the newspaper clipping; but only for a moment did sh« harbor such distrust He was too far goo* in mental decay to be capable of the pursuit of any sustained O hj ec t—and he would, even In hts Imbecile Stnte, revolt from the sordid purpose of her mother. She could find no Justification for Mrs. Krnssln. The bitterness of her heart, when she thought of her, frightened her—the contamination of It all! (To be Continued Next Week).

Sometimes She Would Find Herself Crying the Name of Her Son Aloud. Perhaps they were killing him, now I At such times she would start up to go to Musla to olead with her; to com- And after this she wrote, "False and sinful I" r In the book she found a clipping from some newspaper, pasted on a page of "Measure for Measure," in which a writer had drawn a dlstlnc tlon between Japanese standards o: morals In some things, and those o; western nations. "Most of Shakespeare's plays," the writer stated, "are quite understand able by the people of Japan. Sucl pieces as "King Lear," "Julius Caesar" and "Corlolanus," for Instance, are rather more In the Japanese stage of development than In that of the European of this day. But "Measure for Measure" falls flat. To a heroine of Isabella for refus- r by_yleldlnij to Angeloris j to the mind of Nippon, mere insanity. To the Japanese, Isabella would be entitled to praise for thus ransoming Claudlo. It would, to his mind, be no sacrifice of virtue. No Japanese could imagine a good sister refusing this plea of Claudlo. Sweet slater, let me live: What sin you do to save a brother s life, Nature dispenses with the deed so far That it becomes a virtue I On this Mrs. Krassln wrote, "This Is true. God wills HI" Then she gave the book with the slip In It to Sasha the maid, and commanded her to leave it on Mugia's desk, open where the passages were marked, and with the slip displayed. Afterward, she wished ihe had not done this. It seemed a breach of etiquette. And it might work opposite to her wish; so she resorted again to prayer. She prayed that she might be forgiven for bar unwisdom. She told God that nothing had taken place, between Musla and Lorls except what every one might have seen; she promised that If he would grant that Lorls might be swayed from violence by the purity nnd greatness of his love for Musla, she would give him praise for ever and ever. Meanwhile, sha watched Musia as a cat watches a mouse, eagerly expectant of the girl's second visit to Lorls' car, for wliich, a» she thought of Ilya, she yearningly hoped, Musla, on the other hand, sought companionship. She went again to her father, and found that he had now taken up the writing of his reminiscences of the Russo-Japanese war, She listened to his stories for hour*; and It happened that he paid a high tribute to the lofty sense of honor of the Samurai class in Japan. When she returned to her room, she found "Measure for Measure," with itg un- derscorlngs and markings, the clip ping, and the comments in a disguised hand, which she had no difficulty In Identifying. She tbrew the book from her in hot Indignation. She despaired of her future, she doubted the wortl of life itself, when she thought of the degradation of her mother, that former examplar of all that Justified the existence of a cultured and noble class, when plunged Into the gplritua solvent of this time which tried the souls of human beings beyond their powers of resistance. She remembered what her father had said of the punctilious sense o: honor of the Japanese nobility, am for a moment_8Jie .suspected .that he Vlorningside Choir in Algona March 17th.

The Kiwanis club was entertained by a very interesting talk on astronomy by Dr. Walter Fraser last Thursday at the regular meeting of the club. Dr. Fraser has made an extensive study of the various phases of astronomy and is well qualified to lecture on the subject. He explained the magnitude of the universe and other universes that might be beyond, our own, and the time and origin of our solar system. The doctor explained the LaPlace system of the origin of the solar system which is not generaly accepted now but which had a widespread acceptance a few years ago. The members of the club enjoyed the talk very much. Former Algonians Wed in California.
