a girl of marvelous slenderness and

sensed that her face must repeat
the beauty of her figure and move
Dancing with her was a young
man whose proprietary air betok

From whispered comment he gath
ered these two were Juliet and
Paris. Who was this Juliet? All
thought of Rosaline vanished Into
thin air as he watched her who
danced more as a fairy than a wo
man. She continued the Intricate figures
of the dance with matchless grace,
and in a new design was brought
by her partner to the foot of the
stairs, her face toward Romeo.
At that moment came the must
clans' signal to unmask.
The girl, her mask in hand, raised
her head to meet Romeo's ardent
gaze. All consciousness of time and
space was lost as an answering
ardor dawned slowly in her eyes.
She turned in confusion to her
escort and with htm made her hasty
way across the room.
Romeo beckoned his link-boy. ,
"What lady's that which doth en
rich the band of yonder knight?"
"I know not sir."
He would have followed them, had
not Benvollo, who stood behind -him,
held him back. They were now
unmasked Montagues among Capu-

already claimed as this one seemed
to be, Romeo shook off his restrain

"Oh she doth teach the torches to '

was the answer to his- promise that
Verona held fairer beauties than

But his smile was lost on Romeo.
"The measure done," he said. "I'll '

Says Farm Youth Hold
Future Of The Nation
The welfare of the Nation large
ly is dependent upon the farm fami
lies of the South.
This keynote was struck at the
Older Youth conference held at
State College last week and attend
ed by 101 North Carolina farm boys
and girls from Perquimans County in
the east to Haywood in the west. '
The family as an institution is
the bulwark of the Nation, but in
the big cities the family is breaking
down, said Dr. 0. E. Baker, of the
U. S. Department of Agriculture.
While the birth rate is declining
seriously elsewhere, it still exceeds
the death rate on southern farms,
and in 100 years, he said, most of the
nation's population will have des
cended from southern stock.
"You young people hold in your
