CHAPTER XXTT-The tournament ball
at Damory court draws the elite of the
countryside. Shirley i« crowned by Val
iant as queen of beauty.
Shirley a gown was of pur© white:
her arms were swathed In tulle,
crossed with straps of seed-pearl, over
which hung long semi-flowing sleeves
of satin, and from her shoulders rose !
a stiff pointed medieval collar of Vene-
tian lace, against whose pale traceries
her bronze hair glowed with rosy
light8. The elge of the square-cut cor-
sage was powdered with the pearls
and against their sheen her breast and
neck had the soft creamy ivory of
magnolia buds. Her straight plain
train of satin, knotted with fresh white
rose-buds (Nancy Chalmers had la-
bored for a frantic half-hour In the
dressing-room for this effect) was
held by the eeven-year-old Ryloe
twins, beribboned knickerbockers, duly
impressed with the grandeur of their
privilege and grimly intent on acquit-
ting themselves with glory.
Shirley's face was still touched with
the surprise that had swept it as
Valiant had stepped to her side. She
had looked to see him in the conven-
tional panoply a sober-sided masculine
mode decrees. What she had beheld
was a figure that might have stepped
out of an Elizabethan picture-frame.
He was in deep purple slashed with
gold. A cloak of thin crimson velvet
narrowly edged with ermine hung
from his shoulder*, lined with tissue-
like cloth-of-gold. From the rolling
brim of his hat swept a curling purple
plume. He wore a slender dress-sword,
and an order set with brilliants spar-
kled on his breast.
The costume had been one he had
worn at a fancy ball of the winter be-
fore. It had been made from a paint-
ing at Windsor of one of the dukes of
Buckingham, and it made a perfect foil
for Shirley's white.
The eleven knights of the tourney,
f aoh with his chosen lady, if less
splendid, were tricked out in sufficient-
ly gorgeous attire. Many an ancient
brocade had been awakened for the
nonce from its lavender bed, and ruffs
and gold-braid were at no premium.
To the twanging of the deft black
Angers, they passed in gorgeous array
between flies of low-cut gowns and
flower-like faces and masculine swal-
low-tails, to the yellow parlor. Once
there the music ceased with a splendid
crash, the eleven knights each dropped
upon one knee, the eleven ladies to*
waiting curtsied low, and Shirley, seat-
ed upon the dais, leaned her burnished
head to receive the crown. What
though the bauble was but bristol-
board, its jeweled chasing but tinsel
and paste? On her head it glowed and
trembled, a true diadem. As Valiant
set the glittering thing on those rich
and wonderful coils, the muaic of her
presence was singing a swift melody
In his blood.
His coronation address held no such
flowery periods as would have rolled
from the major's soul He had chosen
a single paragraph he had lighted on in
an old book in the library—a hlstory-of
the last Crusade in French black-let-
ter. He had translated and memorized
the archaic phrasing, keeping the
quaint feeling of the original:
"These noble knights bow in your
presence, fair lady, as their leige,
whom they know as even in judgment,
as dainty in fulfilling these our acts
of arms, and do recommend their all
unto your Good Grace in as lowly wise
as they can. O queen, in whom the
Katharine Had Never Looked More
whole story of virtue is written with
the language of beauty, your eyes,
which have been only wont to discern
the bowed knees of kneeling hearts
and, inwardly turned, found always
the heavenly solace of a sweet mind,
see them, ready in heart and able with
hands not only to assailing but to pre-
A hushed rustle of applause—not
loud: the merest Whisper of silken
feet and feathered fans tapped softly-
testified to a widespread approbation.
It was the first sight many there had
had of John Valiant and in both looks
and manner he fitted their best ideals.
The queen's curtsey was the signal
for the music, which throbbed sudden-
ly into a march, and she stepped down
beside him. Couple after couple,
knights and ladies, ranged behind
them, till the twenty-four stood ready
for the royal quadrille. It was the old-
fashioned lancers, but the deliberate
strain lent the familiar measures some-
thing of the stately effect of the min-
Quadrilles were not invented as aids
to conversation, and John Valiant's
and Shirley's was necessarily limited.
"The decorations are simply deli-
cious!" she said as they faced each
other briefly. "How did you manage
"Home talent with a vengeance. Un-
cle Jefferson and I did It with our lit-
tle hatchets. But the roses—"
They were swooped apart and Shir-
ley found herself curtsying to Chilly
Lusk. "More than queen!" he said
under his breath. "1 had my heart
set on naming you today. I reckon
I've lost ray rabbit-foot!"
Opposite, in turn, Betty Page had
slipped her dainty hand in John Val-
iant's "Ah haven't seen such a lovely
dance for yeahs!" she sighed. Isn't
Shirley too sweet? If Ah had hair like
hers, Ah wouldn't speak to a soul on
The exigencies of the figure gave no
space for answer, and presently, after
certain labyrinthine evolutions, Shir-
ley's eyes were gazing into his again.
"How adorable you look!" he whis-
pered, as he bowed over her hand.
"How does it feel to be a queen?"
"This little head was never made to
wear a crown," she laughed. "Queens
should be regal. Miss Fargo would
The music swept the rest away, but
not the look of blinding reproach he
gave her that made her heart throb
wildly as she glided on.
The last note of the quadrille slip-
ped into a waltz dreamily slow, and
Valiant put his arm about Shirley and
they floated away. Once before, in the
moonlighted garden at Rosewood, she
had lain in his arm for one brief in-
stant then she had seemed like some
trapped wood-thing resisting. Now,
her slender body swaying to his every
motion, she was another creature. Un-
der the drooping tawny hair her face
was almost as pale as the white satin
of her gown: her lips were parted, and
as they moved, he could feel her heart
rise and fall to her languorous breath.
By the Sun-Dlal.
Eyes arched with fan-Bhielded whi*
pera, and fair faces, foreshortened aa
they turned back over powder-white
shoulders, followed their swallow-like
movement. From an ever-widening
circle of masculine devotees Katharine
Fargo watched them with a smile that
cloaked an increasing and unwelcome
Katharine had never looked more
handsome; a critical survey of her
mirror at Gladden Hall had assured
her of that. Never had her poise been
more superb, her toilet more enraptur-
ing. She was exquisitely gowned in
rose-colored mousseline-de-soie, em-
broidered in tiny brilliants laid on in
Or^ek patterns. From her nock, in a
single splendid loop of iridescence
against the rosy mist, depended those
fabulous pearls—"the kind you sim-
ply can't believe," as Betty Page con-
fided to her partner—on whose news-
paper reproduction (actual diameter)
metropolitan shop-girls had been wont
to gaze with glistening eyes; and with-
in their milky circlet, on her rounded
breast, trembled three pale gold-veined
Watching that quadrille through her
drooping emerald-tinted eyes, she had
received a sudden enlightening impres-
sion of Shirley's flawless beauty. At
the tournament her fleeting glimpse
had adjudged the other merely sweetly
pretty. The Chalmers' surrey had
stopped en route for Shirley, but in
her wraps and veil she had then been
all but invisible. This had been Kath-
arine's first adequate view, and the
sight of her radiant charm had the
effect almost of a blow.
For Katharine, be it said, had wholly
surrendered to the old, yet new, at-
traction that had swept her on the
tourney field. And what had lain al-
ways in the back of her mind as a half-
formed intention, had become a self-
admitted purpose during the motor
In another moment the waltz fainted
out, to be succeeded by a duex-temps,
and presently the host, in his crimson
cloak, was doffing his plumed hat be-
fore her. Circling the polished floor
in the maze, there was something
gratefully like former days in the as
sured touch, the true and ready guid-
ance. The Intrusive question faded-
He was the John Valiant she had al-
ways known, of flashing repartee and
graceful compliment, yet with a touch
of dignity, too—as befitted the lord
of a manor—which sat well upon him
After a decorous dozen of rounds, she
took his arm and allowed her perfect
figure to be conducted through the
various rooms of the ground floor,
chatting in quite the old-time way, till
a new gallant claimed her.
The mellow strings made on their
merry tune, and at length the Wash-
ington Post marched all in flushed
unity of purpose to the great muslln-
walled porch with its array of tables
groaning under viands concocted by
Aunt Daphne for the delectation of
And then once more the waltz-strain
supervened and in the yellow parlor
Joy was again unconfined/
Again Valiant claimed Katharine
and they glided off on "The Beautiful
Danube." Her paleness now had a
tinge of color, but nevertheless he
thought she drooped. "You are tired,"
he said, "Bhan't we sit it out?"
"Oh, do you mind?" she responded
gratefully. "It has been a fairly stren-
uous day, hasn't it!"
He guided her to a corridor, where
branches of rhododendron screened an
alcove of settees and seductive cush-
ions. Here, her weariness seemed put
to rout. There was no drooping of
fringed lids, no disconcerting si-
lences: she chattered with ease and
"I have been listening to paeans all
the evening," she said. "And you de-
serve them. It's a fine big thing you
are attempting—the restoring of this
old estate. And I know you have even
bigger plans, too."
He nodded, suddenly serious and
thoughtful. "There's a lot I'd like to
do. It's not only the house and
grounds. There are . . . other
things. For instance, back on the
mountain—on my own land—is a set-
tlement they call Hell's-Half-Acre
Probably it has well earned the
name. It's a wretched collection of
hovels and surly men and drabs of
women and unkempt children, the
poorest of poor-whites. Not one of
them can read or write, and they live
like animals. If I'm ever able, I mean
to put a manual-training school up
there. And then—"
He ended with a half laugh, sudden-
ly conscious that he was talking in a
language she would scarcely under-
stand—in fact, in a tongue new to him-
self. But there was no smile on her
j lips and her extraordinary eyes—cool
gray, shot through with emerald—
| were looking into his with a frankness
and sympathy he would not have
guessed lay beneath her glacial pla-
| To Katharine, Indeed, It made little
difference what philanthropic fads the
man she had chosen might affect as
regarded his tenantry. Ambitions like
I these had a manorial flavor that did
not displease her. And the Fargo mil-
lions would bear much harmless ham-
mering. A change, subtle and incom-
municable, passed over her.
"I shall think of you," she sighed,
"as working on in this splendid pro-
gram. For it is splendid. But New
York will miss you, John."
i "Ah, no. I've no delusions on that
score. I dare say I'm almost forgotten
there already. Here I have a place."
Her head, leaned back against the
cushion, turned toward him, the pale
orchids trembling on her bosom—she
was so near that he could feel her
breath on his cheek. A new waltz
had begun to sigh its languorous meas-

Washington, March 13.—President
Wilson extended what he termed "the
hand of real helpfulness and brother-
hood to Alaska" when he signed the
bill authorizing the expenditure ot
$35,000,000 for the first government-
owned railroad constructed by the
Secretary Lane, a group of sena-
tors and representatives, members of
the Seattle chamber of commerce,
siood beside the president as he af-
fixed his signature to the act.
The president was in a happy mood
and In laying one souvenir pen aside
to use another, Bmilingly remarked:
"I'll change engines."
The president made a brief speech
after signing the bill.
Secretary Lane immediately after-
ward had a long talk with the presi-
ident about the selection of engi-
neers for the task. Though Colonel
Goethals had been mentioned for the
work, it is unlikely that lie will be
through with the Panama canal in
time for the present undertaking,
which Mr. Lane intends to get into
operation at once.
The secretary said the enactment
of the railroad bill would be fol-
lowed by the passage of the Alaska
leasing bill, which would mean the
carrying out oft he administration
program for the department of Alas-
ka within an incredibly short time.
He added that an attempt would be
made to gather the working force

Thursday's law had a comparative-
ly short history, though the subject
had been agitated for many years.
Early last year Secretary Lane en-
dorsed the bill and obtained the sup-
port of the president to make it an

tion leaders in congress during the
debate that followed brought up the
principle of government ownership
of railroads, but were prepared to

Oklahoma City, March 13.—Opposi-
tion of the state game warden's de-
partment to the plan of Secretary
Ben Hennessy for a "crow killing
day" has been voiced by Don B. Law
head, secretary to State Game and
Fish Warden John B. Doolin.
Lawhead Bays the plan of Mr. Hen
nessy is directly contrary to the re-
cent proclamation issued by Governor
Cruce providing for a "bird day,"
and contrary to the biological survey
of the United States department of
agriculture, which describes the crow
as "one of the most useful of birds.'
"The crow is recognized as one of
the greatest rodent killers among
lirds and as such is of inestimable
Value to every Oklahoma farmer,"
State Superintendent R. H. Wilson,
who has joined the state game war-
den's department in the plan for a
"bird day," and who is generally in-
terested in the bird day movement,
said: "If the crow has ever been
clashed as a rodent killer I have
never heard of it. It has always
been my impression that the crow
was a foe to the farmer."
All Hird* I neill I.
"There Is no bird that is not val-
uable to crop life of every kind, It
Is the hope of the game warden's de-
partment that the suggestion of Mr
Hennessy for an organized slaughter
of crows will not be carried out,"
In the mantime Mr. Hennessy
gave out an interview in which he
says he still holds to his original
position, that the state now faces
one of the greatest menaces to spring
crops It has ever known on account
of the vast number of crows in the
state, and that Borne organized effort
should be put forth to kill them.
"Owing to the fact that little grain
was raised in the surrounding states
last year the crows have flocked
from everywhere to the grain fields
of this state," said Mr. Hennessy.
"The raising and placing of shocks
about twenty feet apart of our im-
mense acreage of kafir, feterita and
milo maize, with the heads exposed,
has made a feeding place for these
birds, that, being away from houses
and barns and nothing to frighten
them away, is ideal indeed.
Crows lint Planted (J rain.
"The splendid pasturage of wheat
fields during the last winter has pre-
cluded the necessity of feeding, and
the farmer who was sowing his feed
for next year has awakenod to the
fact that not a grain remains in the
heads of the piauts on the thousands
of acres over the state. One farmer
to whom I was talking a few days
ago sowed about twenty acres of oats
ana as the earth was moist and the
knives clogged, a great deal of the
seed was left on the surface. Oats
will sprout and take root without
covering and this would not have
militated against a crop had not the
crows eaten every seed that was
exposed or buried in shallow ground,
and the result is that he must resow
the field, with a danger of repeti-
tion, or go without oats. Another
danger is that of spreading epidemic.
The crow, as well as being a grain
eating bird, will eat the carrion
of dead animals and carry the germs
in every direction.
Crow Is Curious.
"The crow is the most curious bird
on earth and long after his crop is
filled, when other birds under like
conditions would fly to some tree
and stay there until hunger brought
them out again, one crow will fly
from one stock pen to another and
carry cholera or other germs over
an entire community in one day. The
crow is more responsible for spread-
ing hog eliOlera thai! any otfcer one
agency in the world.
Asks Lodges to Aid.
"I am asking the organizations,
such us the Elks, the Eagles, the
Anti-Horse Thief societies, and oth-
ers, to take up this matter and be
ready to organize a shooting brigade
to rid the various communities of this
menace by setting aside a day when
every member will take a gun and
go into the country, when invited
by the farmers to do bo, and at least
drive back the foreign birds. Okla-
homa farmers are tired of feeding
