Ink Whieh Bleaches. - As the carbon of ordinary printing inks does not bleach in using printed material for new paper; a French firm has patented a special ink. The black pigment is a compound from tanbark extracts acting on ferrous sulphate; and this is incorporated with resin, or mineral oil and resin, or boiled lin seed oil. In repulping the paper the ink is bleached with an acid solution of a hypochloride, chlorine gas or hy drochloric or oxalic acid, the pulp be ing made perfectly white. ; Proper Timber Area.

He had been sound asleep on the couch ever since din ner. It had been a good dinner, too—: fresh caught rainbow trout from the mountain brook that rambled just be low the cabin. The cabin itself was most untidy. W alt had been gone four days. It was no time for callers, and yet the shadow of one lay on the threshold of this sanctum of bachelor hermits, and the shadow was feminine. “I do hope we’re not disturbing you?” This time the tone seemed tinged with regret. “Oh, not' a t all, not at all,” called Holt, blindly. “Come right in.” “We’ve climbed all-the way up from the hotel just to see,your pictures, Mr. Meredith,” she smiled at him frankly, holding out her hand. ‘‘I suppose you are bothered terribly with climbers, but I had to come. I am Persis Owen, and I love your wonderful pictures of the mountains.” Holt took the hand and bowed over it. Walt was on his way to Chicago for an exhibition. He showed all the canvases, and discoursed on them. He found the weary little old aunt out under the big pine and chatted with her until she beamed on him. He dug out some tea, and Persis helped make it. Lastly he walked down to the hotel with them in the cool of the late afternoon and made several appointments. No, he was not so busy then, he assured them. In fact, he had finished nearly all of his paintings for the time being. So, for two weeks he was the her mit artist of Speariooth mountain,. Persia and her aunt came often, some times in the car, sometimes on foot. Then came a day when she brought up her father to see him and his paint ings—old Hobart Owen, who had made his money out of a new kink 4n break fast foods. “I want to have a talk with you,’ the old man paid later as they strolled up the trail'together. “I’m a blunt man and find the shortest way around is straight through the middle. You p.ro In love with my girl, a ren’t you?” “Yes, sir.” Holt’s face was a bit white under the tan. “I know you haven’t told her so yet, and I like you for it. Now, the fact is this: I don’t want her tied up to any artist. I know the game. Some win out. Most of them fall down. She will have plenty of money herself, but I want h e r married to a sensible young business chap that knows his way around in the world and can look after her.N I’m mighty sorry to have to. tell you this, er—I didn’t catch your name, lad.” \ “My name’s .Holt Chambers,” said H o lt, huskfiy*. hacking up against; a jm t ,I-'think’ L c a ir see hL.

He’s in Chicago how, arranging for his fall exhibition. And he’s about forty years old; I’m attorney for the Illinois Southern Railway, and I never handled a paint brush in my life.” Slowly a smile dawned on Owen’s face. He shifted his cigar to the left corner of his mouth and put out his hand. “If you can clear it up with Persia as easily as you have w ith1 me you can go and talk to her. I’ll keep on up the trail a ways.” Holt turned and went back to the cabin. Persis was sitting before the. oil study of Speartooth, her hands clasped behind her head dreamily. “How soon you came back! Where is \dad?” “He won’t be back for a few min utes. He sent me to you. Do you like that stuff?” Almost plaintively ha asked the question. “It’s wonderful,” she said in almost a whisper. “I could sit here and look at it for hours.” “Look at me, instead, Persis. Ob, I mean it,” he plunged ahead now recklessly. “I never painted a stroke on canvas in my life. I’m not W alt Meredith. Can you stand any more?” She nodded her head, her brown eyes filling with tears, but a smile on her lips. “My name’s—” “I know it,” she said. \It’s Holt Chambers. The little boy who sells papers down at the hotel told me long ago. I’m awfully glad you told dad the truth. He likes the truth.” “Did you care more for old Spear tooth than for me?” he asked. “I’ll buy i t for you from W alt for a wed ding gift.” She turned her back on the canvas and held out her hands to him.

May Evans was a sculptciv They both had studios in the same building, and they both boarded with the same landlady. All this would not have attracted as much attention as a raise in the price of dill pickles but for the fact th a t they were always in a quarrel. What they quarreled about and what surprised all their friends was a fea ture of crime—mysterfous disappear ances. They would read in the papers that a girl was sent to the store or Btarted out to her work, and-had been missing for two days. The earth had swallowed her up. She was not dis satisfied with her home life and had had nothing to depress her. Then Miss Evans would deduce; “Some villain has kidnaped, h e r.” “She has been coaxed into a n elope ment.” “She went to Coney Island and was drowned while bathing.” 1 “She was killed by an autb.” Mr. W inters would deduce; “Very likely the girl waS advised by other girls to assert her Independ ence.” “She may have been invited to stay at the house of one of them 'while the two of them ran around together for a good time.” “In two or three days the missing girl will walk into her home w ith a defiant air.” Once in a while the missing girl was found drowned, but it was so rare, and Mr. W inters w a s, right so often, that th e r e w a s h a r d l y a peace ful day in t h e week for them. One day the owner of a mew studio building called to ask them 'to inspect his new apartm ents with a view to a change. Both were satisfied to re main where they were, but. pf course Miss Evans had a curiosity to see the place. W ithout a word to* any one she set off, and after a Street car ride of a mile she reached .^he place. The janitor was out. She went to the top floQ^ a t once, and she was immediately interested. She had looked about for a quarter of an hour when she attempted to open a door which she found locked. It was a spring lock, however, and after a moment she badr' i t ' open. There was a large closet at the rear of the suite, and it had no^windows. She was wondering what *H. was de signed for, and she stepped- Jn as she wondered. “Bang!” A puff of wind from an.bben win dow closed the dopr on hej^and the spring lock did, the rest. - pushed and; b a ttered and kicked aqtjjlJkkouted,. but npthing #ame. of i t - tomorrow before ! am relen^i'd,* said the girL a s s h e - s a t down Ojtjche floor. “I calieef H arold an Idiolnfjflfa ifiojrn- ing, and he will-deduce froiil. my ab sence that I have gone^hfpm© with Flora Day to stay all night- just to bother him. I love Harold, but he does vex me with his deductions.” Although their studios were side by side Mr. W inters and Miss-Evans did not always walk home together, and it was only when she did-not appear at the. dinner table that she was asked after. “I saw her on a Vine- avenue car two hours ago,” said a young man. Mr. W inters went to the club that evening. At midnight he quit his billiards and made a beeline for home. No Miss Evans yet. “Look here, W inters,” said a board er who had just come* in, “you deduce things, don’t you?” “Yes, I have done so.” “Then you’d better get to work on this case. Mis^ W inters is steady as the clock. Something must have hap' pened her this time.” And Mr. W inters sat down in hig j room with pipe in mouth and deduced as follows: “Now, then, what happened during the day ? A little row. Mr. Billiard called. Mrs. Davis called. The owner of the new studio called. He wanted us to look them over. We didn’t go Ha! I didn’t go, but didn’t Mlstf Evans? The card is at tbe studio. If she went what could have happened to her?” At three o’clock in the morning tha artist led the way up the stairs of the new studio. When he came to the locked door he paused a moment. “Only an empty storeroom!” growled the janitor. Yes, only an empty storeroom with Miss Evans asleep in a corner! “Your heels are not too long,” said Mr. W inters as she sat up and rubbed her eyes. [ “Then yon are net a fool,” she smiled.

P&wer had always been inquisitive. Even as a child his curiosity had been a marked charac teristic and had oftetf been the bane of his moth er’s existence. Edna G l o v e r , who lives in the same street with Peter, could write love stories, but she could not use a typewriter. It was through her attempts to mas ter her new ma chine that Peter came to realize that he was entirely lacking in artistic sense. He was going to business as ueual on a bright October morning when a bit of paper caught his eye. With his habitual interest in things, that did not in the least concern him he picked the crumpled paper up on the end of his walking stick. It was a sheet of copy paper which had. been used by a per son evidently learning to use a type writer. “I do wish,” he read, “that the young man in the gray suit would select a new tie and have his clothes pressed more often. He wouldn’t be at all bad looking If he possessed an atom of taste in his dress—but alas! he wears a green and brown tie,, a soft blue hat and red socks. He would look stunning in brown, with a small dull gold tie.” Peter laughed aloud and fell to wondering who had watched him passing and with an eye so critical. P e t e r fell to w o n d e ring w h e th e r t h e name, Edna Glover, so often repeated, was the typist's name or merely a fic titious one. In the evening before he left the office Peter had decided to send a card to Edna Glover in the hope that the name was a real one. The card he sent reached Edna when she was having her early morn ing cup of tea. Martha, her faithful maid brought it to her. “I have ordered a brown suit and purchased a dull gold tie. In the course of a day or two you will See me wearing them. Hope they please you. P. D.” Edna arched her fine brows in thought, then a smile leapt into her ewes. “Oh,” she gasped, “my papers must have blown about and he has picked' one up. Isn’t that dreadful!” The typewriting was progressing nicely and Edna could do an entire page without more than a half dqzen mistakes before she had the pleasure of seeing, from behind her rose cur tained windows, the brown suit, Edna gasped a t the wonderful change it m ade in Peter. H e.certainly was good to look. fit and her eyes folkmed him iinilTfce terjth e sabwaaf ■\ * * Peter was really- proud of himself He wondered why he had never worn brown before and thanked Edna in another card. “Call me ,up at 49 Broda,f’ he wrote. “I w ant-to know if I ha^e se lected the right color. My nainA is Dean—Peter Dean.” Edna drew a sharp breath, half of anger’ and half of excitement when she read that card. .She decided first to ignore the request, but during the afternoon her sense of the rom antic and perhaps a desire to write a story around Peter prompted her to call up the number. “This is perfectly scandalous,” she told him when his most pleasing voice answered her on the telephone. “There is no possible scandal in it,” Peter’s calm voice informed her. “I am a single man without any strings and I take i t that you are in a like po sition. Yes?” His voice had a ring of laughter in it. “You are a fright fully bad typist,” he added. “f have improved wonderfully late ly,” said Edna, with an echo of his laughter. “W hat do you look like?” asked Peter. After a prolonged conversation Edna hung-up the receiver and Peter called up Calvin Asten. “I say, what do you know about Edna Glover?” he asked the astonished Asten. ! “Peach,” came back the prompt re ply. “Have proposed to her a dozen times and Intend to again tonight.” “No you don’t,” said Peter. “I’ll teU you why later.” Disappointing the Gloaters. “I wanter 'ave a to'oth drawn,” said the youngster with the pugnacious face, “and I want gas.” “Tut! Tut!” murmured the dentist. “You’re not old enough for gas. -And I see you’re not afraid of a little pain. Be a m an!” “ ’Tisn’t that,” runs a British week ly’s version of the story, “but I expect just at the end I’ll give a little hit of a squeal.” “Oh, that won’t matter,” the dentist replied. “I shan’t mind.” “No,” retorted the boy,, “but I shall. Just you look out of the window.” The dentist turned to look out, and saw a group of grinning lads stand ing close by his window. “ Well?” he asked his youthful par tient. “W hat does that mean?” “Those are all the kids I’ve fought and licked,” explained the boy, “and .they’ve all followed me .here, just to hear me holler.
