.MARY'S LITTLE HAT.
Mary liad a little hat
But there! I'm really grieved.
There's no use Mulshing the rhyme
It would not 'be believed.
But we can make a little guess
And come within a mile.
"When Mary had that little hat
Big ones were not In style.
Or nmybe this though will explain
About that "little hat";
It only seemed small when compared
With Mary's little "rat."
Mary may have really had
A little hat but still
I'll bet that there was nothing
Very little in the bill.
If Mary had a little hat
The chances are that she
Had lots of peroxided locks
iShe wanted men to see.
The fact that yesterday was elec-
tion day was one of minor import-
ance to femininity in Ardmore for
it was also the 'date for the annual
spring openings of Mrs. Clarke at
the White House and of Miss Gray
The window dressing at the White
House was particularly effective and
was the cause of much admiration
and many compliments. The Idea
was a most happy iin propitious one
ia woodland scene in early spring.
For the background a decorative
screen of trees and grass was used
with bits of bright iblue sky and flee-
cy clouds to suggest warmth and
On a gravel walk In the center or
the window swung a rope awing In-
viting to rest or play.
On either side of the gravel walk
.bloomed fragrant blossoms.
Hyacinths In vari-colored 1 tints
made a deliciously fragrant bed on
the right ind a clinging red rose was
a 'beautiful and artistic bit of decora-
tion for tlie foackgrotinod. The win-
dow was of Mrs. Clarke's own con-
ceiving and expressed the beauty
of spring with a delicacy suggested
hy nature itself.
Dainty souvenirs of the White
House In the way of a shopping
memorandum were 'pinned on by Miss
Sadie Hall and Miss Thui'Iow Ward.
Souvenirs of fragrant eweet 'peas
were given by Mrs. Clarke.
Palms and ferns were used in
decorating the shp and only natu-
ral flowers were employed.
A stringed orchestra furnished mu-
sic and no pains were spared to
make the visitors com fort alble and
to see that they have full opportuni-
ty of seeing the styles.
Miss Clarke evidently sK'nt hr
month at market to a good advan-
tage. Her hats have a distinctive air
and express individuality; the styles
are vastly dissimilar and she chose
several hats from each style she
says that expressed good taste and
Ijid fair to Ibe 'Popular. Her- hats are
charming and have already received
lavish comipHments from the Ard-
more ladles who have looked them
The flowers this year have reach-
ed perfection. Future (years may add
the perfume but the form and color
can receive no further 1eauty.
The children's hats are exceeding-
ly chic and attractive.

To Jim Horner it seemed as if the
great white-headed eagle was In some
way the uttered word of the moun-
tain and the lake of the lofty soli-
tary granlte-orested peak and of
the deep solitary water at its base.
As his canoe raced down the last
mad rapid and seemed to snatch
breath again as it floated out upon
th0 still water of the lake Jim
would rest his paddle across the
gunwales and look up expectantly.
First his keen far-sighted gray eyes
would swoop the blue arc of the sky
in search of the slow circling of
wide motionless wings. Then if the
blue was empty of this far shape
his glance would range at once to
a dead pine standing sole on a naked
and splintered shoulder of the nioun
tain which ho knew as "Old Baldy'
Ther ho was almost sure to see
the great ibird sitting motionless
and majestic staring at the sun.
Floating Idly and smoking resting
after his long battle with the rapids
he would watch till the Immensity
and the solitude would creep In
upon his spirit and oppress him
Then at hist a shrill yelp far-off
and faint but sinister would come
from the pine-top; and the eagle
launching himself on on wings
from his perch would either wheel
upward into the blue or flap away
over the serried fir-tops to some
ravine in the cliffs that hid his nest.
One day when Jim came down the
river and stopped as usual to look
for the great bird he scanned in
vain 'both sky and cliff-side. At last
he gave up the search paddled on
down the lake with a sense of loss
Something had vanished from the
splendor of the solitude. 'But present
ly he heard close overhead the beat
and whistle of vast wings; and look
ing up he saw the eagle passing
above him flying so low that he
could catch the hard unwinking
tameless stare of Its black and gold
en eyes as they looked down upon
him with a sort of Inscrutable chal
lenge. He noted also a peculiarity
which he had never seen in any oth
er eagle. This one had a streak of
almost black feathers immediately

ried in the clutch of its talons a
big glistening lake-trout probably

very set of Its pinion feather as
the wind hummed In the tense webs.
Flying with a massive power quite
unlike the ease of his soaring the
eagle mounted 'gradually up the steep

watch-tower pine ami disapieared
over the edge of a ledge which look-
ed to Horner like a mere scratch
across the face of the high moun-
tains. "That's where his nest is sure!"
said Homer to hlinseif. And reniem
boring that cold challenge In the
bird's yellow stare ho suddenly de-
cided that he wanted to see the
eagle's nest. He had plenty of t!m?
Ho was In no particular hurry to get
back to the settlement nnd the sis-
sip of the cross-roads store. He tinn-
ed his canoe to land lifted her out
and hid her in the bushes and
struck back straight for tlie face
of "Old Baldy."

Horner's progress was so slow and
the windless heat became so oppress-
ive to Lis impatience that he was
iM'ginninK to think of Riving up the
idle vonure when ho suddenly came
face to face with a perpendicular and
impassable wall of cliff. This wrt
arrest to his progress was just what
was needed to stiffen his wavering
resolution. He understood tho defi-
ance which ihis ready fancy had read
in the stare of the eagle. Well he
had accepted the challenge. He would
not be 'baffled by a irock. If he could
not cllnVb over It he would go
round It; but he would find Hie

that he had t-iade mitlVlent heisnt
to clear the gloom of the woods. As
he looked out over their tons a light
breeze cooled his wet forehead and
he pressed on with fresl vigor. Pres-
ently the slope grew a trifle easier
the foothold surer and he mounted
more rapidly. The st-sely lake an.!
th rough-ridged .black-green se.t of
the fir-tops began to unroll below
him. At last he rounded an elbow
of the steep; and there before h'm
up-thrust perhaps a hundred feet
above his head stood the outlying
shoulder of rock cvrowned with its
dead pine on which he was accus-
tomed to see the eagle sitting. Even
as he looked motionless there came
a rushing of great wings; mirt sud-

confidential and always heJpt uL
towards reaching the dead pine. With
Infinite difficulty and with a few
bruises to arm and leg ho managed
to cross the Jagged crevice which
partly sejvarated tlie jutting rock
pier from the main faec of the cliff.
Tln n laboriously am! doggedly he
dragogd himself up the Fplintcrrd
sloiH1 still lxdng forced around to
tho right till theno fell away be-
low him a gulf int owhich it was
not good for tho nervous to look.
Feeling that a fate very different
from that of Lot's wife might be
his if he should let himself look
back too indiscreetly he kept his
eyes upon the lofty goal and pressed
on upwards with a haste that now
grew a trifle feverish. It began to
seem to him that the Irony of the
eagle's changeless stare might per-
haps not bo unjustified.
Not till Horner had conquered the
steep and panting ilmt elated gained
tho ver yfoot of the pine did the
eagle stir. Then spreading his wings
with a slow disdain as if not dread
but aversion to this unbidden visitor
bade him go he launched himself
on a long splendid sweep over the
gulf and then mounted on a spa-
clous spiral to his Inaccessible out-
look in tho blue. Leaning against
the bleached and scarred trunk of
the pine Horner watched this ma-
jestic departure for some minutes
recovering his breath and drinking
deep tlie cool and vibrant air. Then
he turned and scanned the face of
There it lay in full view the nest
which he had climbed so far to find.
It was not more than a hundred
yards away. Yet at first sight it
seemd hopelessly out of reach. The
chasm soarating the ledge on which
It clung from the outlying rock of
the pine was not more than twenty
feet across; but Its bottom was ap-
parently somewhere In the roots of
the mountain. There was no way of
passing It at this point. But Hor
ner had faith that there was a way
to he found over or around every
obstacle in the world If only one
kept on looking for it resolutely
enough. To keep on looking for a
path to the eagle's nest ho struggled
onward around the outer slope of
the ibuttress down a ragged Incline
and across a narrow ami dizzy "saddle-back"
which brought him present-
ly upon another angle of the steep
facing southeast. Clinging with his
toes and one Uiand while he wiped
his dripping forehead with his sleeve
he loked up and saw the whole
height of the mountain unbroken
and daunting stretched skyward
But to Horner the solemn sigh was
not daunting in the least.
"Gee!" he exclaimed grinning with
satisfaction. "I hev' circumventec"
that there crevice sure's shootln'!
Of the world below he now had a
view that was almost overjiowering-
ly unrestricted; but ot tht. mountain
and his scene of oixsrations he could
nee only the stretch directly above
him. A little calculation convinced
him however; that all he had to do
was to keep straight on up for (per-
haps a hundred ana flty feet then
as soon as the slope would permit
work around to his left and descend
uiwn the nest from above. Incidental
ly he made up his mind that his re-
turn journey should be made by an-
other face of the mountain any oth-
er rather than that by which he had
rashly elected to come.
It seemed to Horner like a mile
that last hundred and fifty yards
but at last he calculated that he had
gained enough in height. At the same
time he felt the slope growing easier.
Making his way toward the left he
came uion a narrow ledge a'ong
which he could move easily side-
wise by clinging to the rook. Pres-
ently It widened to a aLh iby which
he could walk almost at ease with
the wide wide solitude dark-green
laced with silver water-courses
spread like a stupendous amphithe-
ater far below him. It was the wil-
derness which he knew so well in
detail yet had never before seen as
a whole; and the sight for a few
moments held him in a .kind of awed
surprise. When 'he tore his gaze
free from the majestic spectacle
there some ten on twelve yards be-
low his feet he saw the object of
his rpr st.
It was nothing much to boast of
in the way of architecture this nest
of the King of the Air a mere cart-
load of sticks and bark and coarse
grass apparently tumlbled in hap
hazard ujwn the narrow eldge. But
in fact its foundations were so skill-
fully wedged into the cn vices of
the rock its structure was so cun-
ningly interwoven that the fiercest
winds which scouiiged that lofty sea'
were powerless against It. It was a
secure throne no matter what tern
pests mgiht rago around It.
Sitting half erect on the nest were
two eagles almost full grown and
so nearly full feathered that Horner
wondered why they did not take to
wing at his approach. He did not
know that the ioriod of helplessness
with these younglings of royal birth
lasted even after they looked as big
and well able to take care of them

Kills the Dandruff Germ

piiW people are aware of the number of Dandruff Germs
that infest the human hair and scalp. The germs which

It was the nest only that saved
