,i Despite the deadly enmity of

Jfonfaflus, and Juliet, daughter
of the Capulets, marry At secret.
Juliet's cousin Tybalt force Bo
rneo to duel and it killed. Romeo
is banished from Verona. Friar
Laurence, his confessor, counsels
him to flee to Mantua and re
main there until he can pave the
way for his return. Lord and
Lady Capulet, not knowing Juliet
has married Romeo, arrange for
her to marry Count Paris. Juliet
seeks Friar Laurence's aid. Be
gyves her a potion which will
make her seem like dead for 42
hours, his Vm being to have her
family lay her to rest in the Ca
pulet Tomb and, at the end of
the 42 hour, he and Borneo will
rescue her. Juliet eagerly con
sents to his plan.
l-yRIAR Laurence gazed
I 11 Juliet's shining face.
C"2g"Be strong!" he urged ,and
sent her on her way with his bless
ing and his prayer.
When she had gone, he hastily
at himself down at his table to
pen the promised note to Romeo.
His quill moved rapidly over the
paper. There must be no sllp-up!
Time was of the essence! Romeo
must arrive from Mantua at the
tomb of the Ca
pulets upon the
hour, lest Juliet
the sleeping po
tion and by some
found alive by others.
And even as Juliet made her
homeward way, his messenger,
JPriar John, was galloping toward
Mantua, the letter to Romeo safely
hidden on his person.
Juliet hurried along the path
arriving soon at the street that
led to her house.
The sounds of the fevered activi
ty within greeted her. Her father's
Voice boomed above the clc.'ior.
She entered the garden and I:rc--e&
herself to smile as ha turned .o
"How now, my headstrong," he
called. "Where have you tcon gad
ding?" "Where I have learned to repent
the sin of disobedient opposition to
you and your behests," she answer
ed softly. "I am Enjoined by holy
Laurence to fall prostrate here and
. beg your pardon." She kneeled
humbly before him.
"I'm glad," he answered kindly
and helped her to her feet. "This
Is as it should be." Me caressed her
and dismissed her.
She made her slow and quiet way
toward the house, her nurse follow
ing at her heels. She ascended the
wide stairs in silence and made
"straight for her bedchamber. There
displayed, were her wedding clothes.
The nurse fingered each garment,
lost in admiration. Juliet seized the
: moment to slip the vial containing
the sleeping potion F.iar Laurence
ad given her into hei jewel casket.
She then turned to ber nurse and
made pretense of sharing the other's
"Ay," she observed. "Those attires
mre best. But, gentle nurse, I pray
thee leave me to myself tonight."
Lady Capulet looked in upon
them. "Need you my help?" she
"No, madam," Juliet replied, and
With a smile crossed to where her
mother stood. "Please," she begged
wistfully, "let me be left alone?'
Bet mother nodded; Indeed It
wilted her purpose most excellently
not to linger; moreover she herself

' details of the wedding awaited their
Lady Capulet bent io kiss the
-irl's forehead. "Get thee to bed
nd rest," she said, "for thou hast
jieed," and motioned the nUrse to
follow her out of the room. -
Juliet watched them as they
hustled down the corridor. .
' - "Farewell," she murmured. "God
"knows when we shall meet again."

A great weariness descended upon
her and she fell upon her bed. She
reached for the vial, but a new fear
stayed her hand. "How if, when I

She pressed her fingers to her
eyes as if to shut out this tortuous
imagery, but she could not. "Shall
I not then be stifled in the vault

But what If she awoke too soon
and were not stifled? Might not

awake oefore the promised hour?
"Oh," she cried from out the
depths of her agony. "If I wake.
shall I not be distraught?"
She burled her face In her hands
to ward off this waking nightmare.
But through ber fingers it persisted,
bringing wild visions that now be
trayed her mind. Did she play mad
ly with come forebear's bones?
Might she not pluck the mangled
Tybalt from his shroud? Would she,
in this rage, dash out her desperate
brains? She stifled a shriek. Her
eyes rivetted themselves on the vial.
"Look," she whispered. "Methlnks
I see my cousin's ghost seeking out
Romeo. Her hand closed swiftly '
on the vial and she raised it to her
lips. "Stay, Tybalt! Stay!" she
cried and fell' beck upon her bed.
She drew her curtains closed and
swiftly drained the vial. "Romeo,"
she murmured. "I come."
And all that Friar Laurence
promised came to pass. Soon, soon,
she crossed the gulf from conscious
ness to sleep. Like icy death the
potion froze her veins. No pulse, no
warmth, no breath betokened that

They looked out into the garden '

SWINE RAISING : -OFFERS
Price Trend Good; Need, Balanced
Ration For Rapid, Cheap
' Gains fc
. With hog prides at new highs for
recent years 1 and the price outlook
for fall and winter favorable, pork
production offers an opportunity for
southern fanners to supply their
own meat and to market their feed
crops profitably through pork. -"In
the first half of the 1937-38
hog marketing year," says the De
partment of Agriculture, "the num
ber of hogs slaughtered will be
smaller than in the corresponding
period of 1930-37 . With., prospects
fairly favorable for continuation of
the present relatively strong consum
er demand for meats, hog prices next
fall and winter probably will aver
age as high as ,or perhaps higher
than in the fall and winter of 1936-
Require More Protein
Hog production offers many ad
vantages for farmers, efficiently sup
plementing other types of livestock
farming, requiring a relatively small
investment, and producing gains more
rapidly and efficiently than other
classes of stock. Important, also, is
the fact that pigs can be marketed
at a wide range of weights, giving
the feeder comparative freedom to
take advantage of a good market by
selling early or to feed to heavier
weights for later marketing.
Because of the rapid growth of
swine, and of the fact that they con
sume relatively little roughage, the
supplying of adequate amounts of
protein is of major importance in the
economical feeding of hogs. Pigs
need rations containing liberal pro
portions of protein. Unless this is
supplied, they will make slow and
Self-feeders, which enable the hog
to balance his own ration, save time
and labor for the hog raiser. In the
South, where pastures are available
much of the year, the use of self-
feeders on pastures or forage crops
is rapidly gaining in popularity.
Protein supplements in the self
feeder increase both the gain and
rate of gain. A half-and-half mix
ture of cottonseed meal and tankage,
fish meal or shrimp bran, is the
standard protein supplement on many
farms. The price and availability
usually determines the choice of
grain used in the self-feeder. Plenty
of water and a mineral mixture of
equal parts of ground limestone or
oyster shells, bone meal and .salt,
should be available at all times. '
The half-and-half mixture of cot
tonseed meal and tankage, fish meal
or shrimp bran is widely used, also,
to supply essential protein for swine
"hogging down" or "hogging , off"
A Weil-Balanced Ration
Other feeders prefer to mix the
grain and protein supplements, rath
er than using a self-feeder. The
following ration is excellent for
feeding pigs from the time that they
weigh about 75 pounds until ready
for market at a weight of about 250
pounds. It may be fed either with
green pasture or in the dry lot, and
offers a wide choice of grains to be
Shelled corn; or milo, kafir or
feterita; or finely ground barley or
coarsely ground wheat, 87 pounds;
cottonseed meal 9 pounds; tankage 4
pounds; limestone, or oyster shell
flour, bone meal or wood ashes 1
pound; salt one-half pound.
When hand-fed, pigs should re
ceive all of the mixture that they
will clean up quickly twice daily.
This may be fed dry or as slop.

Mixed Apples Impart
Tang To Sweet Oder
The spicy, aromatic flavor and tang
of sweet cider depends upon the
varieties of apples from which the
juice is passed.
H. R, Niswonger, extension horti
culturist at State College, has re
commended the following combina
tion for making appetizing, zestful
Sixty per cent sweet apples and a
sub-acid variety like Rome Beauty;
15 per cent acid varieties like Red
Winesap, Stayman, York Imperial;
10 per cent of Delicious, Golden De
licious, or Bonum, which impart aro
matic flavor; 5 per cent crab apple
or seedling varieties to give tang;
and 10 per cent Ben Davis, Black
Ben, Wolf River, Limbertwig.
Although cull apples can be used
fcr making cider, Niswonger pointed
out, they should be free from worms
and rot and ripened on the trees.
Early windfalls, not yet ripe and
over-ripe apples should not be mix
ed with those ripened on the trees.
Do not leave apples piW on the
ground for any appreciable length of
