Mae Dougal in Harper s. The Leaf 1� Rich in two classes of sul Wanees one of which is of no further Iku refit to it and an other which it has to to Iii try cited it expense of Energy an Ltd which is in a form of the highest Jio Siwe usef nines to the Plant. To this class belong the compounds in the protoplasm the Gre had color bodies and w whatever surilus food May not have Ireen previously convey away. The substance w a Tab the Plant must needs discard Are in the form of nearly insoluble Crystal and by re mall no in position in the Leaf drop with it to the ground and pass into that great Complex Lal oratory of the soil where by slow methods of Dusl Negm ton useful elements Are set free and once again May he taken up by the tree and travel their devious course through Root hairs along the sinuous roots and up through million celled columns of the trunk out through the twigs to the leaves once More. The plastic substances within th3 Leaf which would Lac a loss to the Pla it if thrown away undergo Multi a tit r ent series of changes. These substance i Are in the ext re meat parts of the Leaf and to pass into the Plant Isnit must penetrate Many hundreds of mini branes of diffusion into the Long conducting cells around the ribs or Nerv a and then Down into the twigs and stems. The successful Retreat of Ima great mass of valuable matter in not a simple problem. These Suli stances contain nitrogen As a part of their compounds and As a consequence Are very readily broken Down when exposed re the sunlight. In tie living Normal Leaf the Green a a Olor forms a most shield from the action of the Sun but when the Retreat is i gun one of he first Steps results in the disintegration of the chlorophyll. This would allow the fierce rays of the sep Tetner Sun to a Trike directly through tie Broa a expanses of the Leaf destroying All within were not other Means provided for Protection. In the first place when the chlorophyll Breaks Down among the re suiting substances Formell in Cyan Phyll Blue. Which absorbs the suns rays by the same general manner As the chlorophyll. In addition the outer layers of cell of the Leaf contain other i a ments. Some of which have teen massed by the chlorophyll and tithe a which Are formed As decomposition products so that the Leaf exhibits out Wally a gorgeous Hanoi it oly of Rol or in reds yellows and bronzes that make up the autumnal . From the wild riot of tints shown by a clump of Trees or shrubs the Eno Uleous impression might be gained that the colors Are a it Chi Neal in their o cur rence. This 1 far from the Case however. The keynote of color in any Spe cies 1� constant with minor and local variations. The Birches Are a Golden yellow Oaks vary the Ouirt yellow Orange to re a Brown the Maple Lee come a dark red. The Tulip tree a Light yellow Hawthorn and Imison Oak in it come Violet while the sumac and vines take on a flaming Scarlet. These colors exhibit some variation in Accord with the character of the soil on which tha plants stand. Fic turd Peak Rda.

They feared to look and were yet drawn by the irresistible fascination of him who must learn tue worst if death itself be the result. At last one Man lifted hollow and fear worn Eye to the bulletin Hoard. With a wild shriek he timed and fled toward Hie Home. It had Otue. Over on the Little blackboard a signal All knew.

In the group of men who first stood about that bulletin Board was George Kendrick Lum Bennan. Kendrick had faced death on Many a stricken Field and was a stranger to fear.

A a he stood there in wonder ail amazement at that fearful Rush be was accosted by old Jim Butler one of the leaders of the native element. Butler was a gaunt sinewy Quot Johnnie who had a a men hot in War. He led his pretty daughter Mamie As he struggle with that crowd in the Effort to reach the City Hall for a Refuge. George loved Mamie with Al the Force of his Strong taciturn nature. He was loved in return but the fateful words had not been Ajak in. The old Man saw the Mutual love and while he did not relish a for a son in Law was too god a father to bring a a Orrow to his Only child. A what Are you doing thereto he called to the younger Man.

There they stood on the Doorstep and watched the hurrying mob of battling tar Roriz Al human Beluga almost devoid now of All semblance to humanity. Butler s influence made it possible for them to Hope to wait until the lost train should leave. Then be determined that i Chud and her Lover should race with death to a More Northern City where relatives would receive the girl and she and Kendrick might be Safe from the Epi Deunk. The people rushed madly to the depot or out into the Gulf. Every conveyance was impressed into service to remove to v cd ones from under the dreadful Shadow. Calmly the natives waited the inevitable. To Licurs was a nature to wait and Pray and keep strict watch and Ward that the hovering might be limited to their own town and not Rush a into the Interior or even invade the states North of Dixie. Up to this time yellow Jack had been an affliction of Dixieland. It was soon to show its horrid front North of the Ohio and in cities where its Preo ence was never thought possible.

But the death inside a not so Swift nor to sure As that which awaited him who essayed to break that rigid line extending in a wide Semi circular sweep Hack from the water front around the City to the other Beach from each to West.
