Men With Beards.
What a vast difference there Is be-
tween one beard and another! There
Is the long, untrammeled beard, broad
and thick, which the owner caresses as
if it were an infant. Men with such
beards may, I think, as a rule, be trust-
ed rather more than other men. Can
you imagine a Venetian doge or a
member of the council of ten without
a beard? I cannot. If you have seen
a man of mark fondle his long beard
during the processes of reflection you
will be apt to wonder whether or not
his mind would lose its equilibrium If
lhe were in the night to be shaven clean.

A Coffee Caleulation.
A variation of the old blacksmith cal-
kulation by which the progressive dou-
bling of sums beginning with a cent
for the first nail -brings the price of
shoeing a horse up to a stupendous
sum Is used by an Arch street grocer to
advertise his coffee with striking ef-
fect. The grocer displays a sign read-
ing, "If one grain of our coffee was
placed on the first square of a checker-
board, two on the second, four on the
third, and so on, doubling throughout
the whole sixty-four squares, the to-
tal number arrived at would be 18,446,-
744,073,551,615 coffee beans, or 7,960,-
115,394,584,601 pounds of coffee. This
would represent 331,704,808,107 car
loads, and a freight train to carry it
would be 3,957,841,460 miles in length.
It would reach around the earth 158,-
313 times and would extend 42 times
the distance between the earth and the
sun. The quantity would make 13,-
374,337,862,902,130 gallons of coffee and
would cost at 28 cents a pound $872,-
407,800,806,397.20. If each person in
the country drank three cups daily It
would take the entire population of the
United States 2,442,801 years to con-
sume it."-Philadelphia Record.
When Commodore Billings and Mr.
Main were on the river Kahima they
had for attendant a young man from
Kanoga, an island between Kamchat-
ka and North America. One day Mr.
Main asked him, "What will the sav-
ages do to me If I fall into their pow-
"Sir," said the youth, "you will nev-
er fall into their power if I remain
with you. I always carry a sharp
knife, and If I see you pursued and
unable to escape I will plunge mn
knife into your heart; then the savages
can do nothing to you."
This recalls the words of the French
knight reported by Joinville. "Swear

they can take me."
"Willingly," returned the knight. "I

The lichen is remarkable for the great
age to which it lives, there being good
grounds for believing that they endure
as long as a hundred years. Their
growth is exceedingly slow, almost be-
yond belief, indicating that only a little
nourishment is necessary to keep them
alive. In a dry time they have the pow-
er to suspend growth altogether, renew-
ing it again at the fall of rain. This
peculiarity alone Is enough to make the
lichen a vegetable wonder, as It is a
property possessed by no other species
of plant Another Interesting fact about
lichens is that they grow only where
the air is free from dust and smoke.
They may be said to be a sure indica-
tion of the purity of the air, as they are
never found growing In cities and
towns, where the atmosphere is impreg-
nated with dust, soot, smoke and other
A Bird's Weapon.
Birds while still in the egg have a
sharp, horny spike attached to the up-
per part of the beak, by means of
which they are assisted in breaking
out of the shell. This prominence be-
comes opposed to the shell at various
points In a line extending all around
the egg at about one-third of the egg's
length from the large end. It makes a
series of little holes, thus weakening
the shell, and when the chick arrives
at i certain stage of strength and de-
velopment it has no difficulty in break-
ing out. In the common fowl this little
weapon drops off a day or two after it
Is hatched, but on the pigeon and birds
that are fed by their parents it some-
times remains for two weeks.

The first meeting consisted simply
in electing officers for the branch and
appointing committees to carry on
the work for the summer. The officers

Every boy and girl, every man and
woman has little heartaches not
shared by others, and little private
ways of driving them away. But no
way is quite so quick nor quite so
sure as to do a kindness:
Do a kindness, do it now;
Angels know it all, somehow.
Do a kindness any time;
Angels weave it into rhyme.
Do a kindness-it will pay;
Angels will rejoice that day.
Kindly deeds, and thoughts and words
Bless the world like songs of birds!

Something to do,
Some one t care for,
Some one who's true.
Some mission in life,
Kind acts to perform,
Something to live for,
Therein lies a charm.
Some sad heart to comfort,
With kind hearts at least,
Which oft prove a blessing
And bring to them peace.
Some lost one to save,
Some s.oul to reclaim,

Tears of disappointment came into her
gentle old eyes as she gazed down or.
the expensive robe. It was of raw,
crude, bricklsh pink-the very last hue
that a girl with hair the copper coloio
of Lesda's dare wear.
The girl laid back the layers of tis

"I'm sorry, because Uncle Bruce

The long, hot, golden day lagged
by. Never had the giving of music
lessons seemed so tedious nor had the
pupils ever appeared so tiresome.
Coming home just as the relentless sun;
was dropping down the west, the g.ri
brightened with wan pleasure at sight
of the little old gray cottage she called
home. In the house she knew would
be balm-the balm of sympathy, of
rest, of love.
"I'll have a bath and a fresh gown,"
she told herself, "and get out here in
the silence and the sweetness and read
until I forget there are gay people
dancing the night away-and I not
one of them!"
Not for worlds would she have ad-
mitted even to her own heart that It
was less the social exhilaration she
missed than the wee, hidden hope shei
had harbored of seeing once more a
well remembered dark head, of feel
ing the warm clasp of a strong, firm

through its transparency.
The afterglow faded. Shadows
crept stealthily up the garden ways.
It was not possible to read longer.
Anyhow she had hardly been aware
of that which she was reading. Now
the guests were gathering at her
uncle's imposing home. Lights were
blazing and the gay music from the
city resounding. And now she closed
her eyes, drifting away into a reverie,
varihued, melodious, kaleidoscopic, so
absorbing that she did not notice the
stopping of a carriage at the gate nor
the heavy footstep muffled by the thick
"I won& if a kiss would waken

"I'm not"- She started to her feet,
the flooding light of the warm, young
midsummer moon full on her face.
"Gordon!" she murmured.
Older, heavier, manlier than the
young fellow who had gone away, there
was still the admiration in his eager
eyes, the smile of tenderness about the
square cut lips.
"You're a nice girl," he cried, holding
her cold, slight hands in his warm,
heavy pressure, "never to come to a
party given in the honor of your old
friend! I looked for you everywhere.
Your uncle said you had promised him
you would come. So he sent me to

Every one in town knew that Gordon
Ellis had made a fortune in the Klon-

isted that he was returning In quest of
a wife. There were those who, recalling

Lesda nodded, evincing polite Inter-
est Until the mother of Hortenqe had
married her uncle twelve months pre-
vious she and her aunt had lived with
Bruce Ferguson, directing his house-
hold. But with the coming of a bride
possessed of a grown daughter all this
was changed. So L.uclnda FIerguson,
having got together her few heirlooms
and some furniture, had moved into a
little house she owned on the outskirts
of the rich, bustling manufacturing
The new mistress and her daughter
were left in victorious possession, and

must mean to such fastidious women
as his sister and niece. He had set-

The expression of pioud reserve
deepened on the countenance of Les@ca
Revere. She had an odd, exquisite
style of beauty, foreign to her class
and nationality. While her features
were not classically perfect, there was
about her face a look of spirituality,
of distinction, that attracted and held
"I hope you'll have a beautiful time,"
she said courteously. "But I shan't

in the palm of the other hand.

that he had guessed right. "Well, you

ewl Self Control;
To most people self control means the
control of appearances and not the con-
trol of realities. This Is a radical mis-
take and must be corrected If we are
to get a clear idea of self control and if
we are to make a fair start in acquir-
ing It as a permanent habit.
If a man is ugly to me and I want to
knock him down and refrain from do-
mug so simply because It wouldn't ap-
pear well and sl not the habit of the
haIt-it of the people. about me, my de-
.ir. to knr'cl; htui down Is still a part
,f niys-If,i and I have not controlled
uby'self until I am absolutely free from
that Interior desire. So long as I am in
itaired to another I am in bondage to
my hatred; and If. for the sake of ap-
pear ances, I do not act or speak from It
I am none the less at Its mercy, and it
will find an outlet wherever it can do
4. without debasing me in the eyes of
itl.pr men more willing than I am to be
.*,'bnsedt. My selfish desire to injure the
man I hate Is counterbalanced by my
selfish desire to stand well In the eyes
of other men. There can be no true self
control so long as either form of selfish-
ness dominates my actions. The contAl
if appearances is merely outward re-
pressioh, and a very common instance
of this may be observed in the effort to
control a laugh.-Annie Payson Call in
The seven days preceding and the
seven days following the winter sol-
stice were called by the ancients "hal-
cyon days." This phrase is derived
from a fable which sets forth that Hal-
cyone, a princess who grieved so deep-
ly for the loss at sea of her spouse, was
sent thither in pity In th!j form of a
halcyon bird or kingfisher.
According to the legend, the halcyon
bird had during the time of breeding
the pawer of lulling the waves, and it
was. believed at this time the sea was
always calm and might be navigated
in perfect security. Experience, of
course, dispelled this fable; but, like
many another old world story, it has
left behind it a distorted meaning.
In thi3 case the connection between
the old and the new significance is
clear, for the term, once expressive of
peace and calm upon the waters, is
equally expressive of tranquillity upon
the sea of life.
Danger of Hypnotism.
Even with the best understanding of
the subject now possible, there is dan-
ger in originating anything that puts
a hypnotized person under his own
1-ont-o! --in other words, that originates
iauttoit;iam. writes Dr. M. A. Veeder
in the Mel;dial Record. So long as
the subject Is under the control of the
hypnotizer absolutely there is not so
much danger. but let him go out under
lImlan.e whee!. In this way auto sug-
gestmin. which fortunately Is more dif-
ficult and exceptional, may originate
exceedingly unpleasant experiences.
The writer has even come to the can-
clusion that there may be causes of
insanity confined to institutions that, if
the truth were known, are really of
English Gardens and Ours.
There Is a fundamental diffEtace be-
tween the English and the American
garden. The Englishman's garden is
well nigh as essential as his house. It
is like an extra room to the residence.
It is for the family rather than for the
public. It therefore works itself into
the developing consciousness of chil-
dren, and garden love becomes as
much a part of the person as books
and furniture and music do. The
American garden is likely to be all in
the front yard. It is usually of the
look-at-me kind. It is made for the
public to see. This may contribute to
public spirit and civic betterment, but
it loses in originality and vitality.-L.
El. Bailey in Garden Magazine.
An Unpromising Field.
Mr. Yipsley was just on the point of
leaving his house for his place of busi-
ness downtown when there came a
ring at the front door bell. He opened
the door. A cativaseer stood outside.
"I beg your pardon," said the can-
vasser, "but I'd like to show you a
sample of our improved talking ma-
"I think I don't care to see It," re-
plied Mr. Yipsley.
"You are not interested in talking
machines perhaps?" ventured the
"I can't say that, either; but I have
one already. Talks all day long; Nev-
er needs winding up. Never runs down."
At this moment a high pitched voice
from somebody at the top of the stair-

allowed In the Preobrasbenskl body-

regiment none but fair men are ad-
mitted, while a turned up nose is the
qualifying adornment of the Pawlow
guards. The Guards chasseurs, on the
other hand, are composed exclusively
of "dark haired men. Then, too, the
isstluctilon between officers of the
guards and those serving in line regi-

over a captain of the line. Further-

whosoever should be convicted of theft
should first have h's head shaved; that
boillug pithi should then be poured
upon It, and a etshilon of feathers (do

"The only perfectly beautiful wo-
man," said a well known sculptor,
"must have been a goddess. I nevei
saw. a Itrl'etly beautiful woman ir
my life, nor even heard of the exist-

Englishman has discovered in some an
client gossip written on papyrus that
she had the foxy red hair and th(
freckled skin of all the Ptolemy family
and was obliged to resort to hair dyes
and cosmetics to keep up her reputa-
tion for look. But perhaps the sever-
est shock to the feelings is to learn that
Mary, queen of Scots, actually squint-

A Creeping Death.
Blood Poison creeps up towards the
heart, causing death. J. E. Stearns,
Belle Plamie, Minn., writes that a friend
dreadfully injured his hand, which
swelled up like blood poisoning. Buck-
len's Arnica Salve drew out the poison,
healed the wound and saved his life.

The smallest mammal in the British
isle Is the shrewmouse. This is not
only the smallest British mammal, but,
with the exception of one other of the
same genus, the smallest in Europe.
The hnrrvest mouse is sometimes
thought to be even smaller, but the
length of its head and body is often
two and one-half inches, while that'
of tie lesl r shrew Is rarely more thain
two inches. The tail measures about
one and one-third inches, and its teeth
are so extremely small that a lens is
required to detect them.
Thousands Have Kidney Trouble
and Don't Know it.
How To Find Out.
Fill a bottle or common glass with your
water and let it stand twenty-four hours; a
p sediment or set-
tling indicates an
tion of the kid-

your linen it is
evidence of kid-
covicigney trouble; too
Frequent desire to
pass it or pain in
the back is also
convincing proof that the kidneys and blad-
der are out of order.
What to Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the
back, kidneys, liver,. bladder and every part
of the urinary passage. It corrects inability
to hold water and scalding pain in passing
it, or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the night. The mild and the extra-
ordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
WVatch a Vehicle's Front Wheel.
"Watch the front wheel," said a ven- I
rable citizen the other day just after
he had witnessed a serious accident on
Pennsylvania avenue, in which a man
had been knocked down and run ovci
by a wagon.
Those four words constitute a whole
warning chapter, and if people in their
hurry and scurry would only heed them
there would be fewer broken bones.
cripples and fatalities.
"Do not," he cautions, "look at the
horses or the driver. The animals may
be turned suddenly In your direction by
a quick jerk of the reins or some other
cause, and the driver's gaze rarely in-
dicates the direction his team is going
to move In. The attention of the aver-
age driver is usually attracted by mat-
ters .that are happening about him-
passing teams, pretty girls and the J
like. But watch the near front wheel 1
and you will find It an easy matter to
avoid an approaching team, even
though it be a runaway. The next
time you go across the avenue try the
experiment of watching the front wheel
and you will agreed with me that It is

Saved by Dynamite.
Sometimes a flaming city is'saved by
dynamiting a space that the fire can't
cross. Sometimes a cough hangs on so
long,you feelas if nothing but dynamite
would care it. Z, T. Gray, of Calhoun,
Ga., writes: "My wife had a very aggra-
vated cough, which kept her awake
nights. Two physicians could not help
bar; so she took Dr. King's New Dis-
covery ofor Consumption, Coughs and

The Quality That Counts.
The great prizes of life do not fall t(.

the shrewdest, to the most long headed

How the African kiatsl.
At eating, the native African negro
having always first washed his band
and rinsed his mouth, sits upon tlh
ground, holds the larger pieces be
tween his teeth while he cuts off- a bith
with his knife, but does not use botl
hands to hold food except in gnawing
bones. With the usual dishes he lays
his right arm over his knees and.
reaching into the pot, molds the thick
mess into lumps about the size of a
walnut, which he throws into his
mouth with a jerk without scattering
any of the food. To take out vegeta-
bles or soup he presses a hollow into
the lump and dips with it. Politeness
is shown to the host or housewife after
eating by smacking loudly enough to

She wai a Wisconsin girl of more
than the usual share of this world's
goods who became engaged to the man
from Main*, a civil engineer, whose
business was in the far west. Com-
pelled to separate soon after the en-
gagement, 2,000 miles soon divided the
two lovers. Business duties called the
man away, but frequent letters helped
to shorten the months of separation.
Turning her attention to cooking, this
girl of almost unlimited wealth sooa
proved her devotion to beo absent lover
by mastering the difficulties of cook-
ing in anticipation of that happy time
when she "should have a home of her
own. Triumphantly she wrote her
lover, "I can, make lemon pie, custard
pie and Washington pie all myself!"

Lion umder the presidency of Casimir-

>f heart. When the doorkeener brought
him his letters one morning Spuller
said to him:
"Were you not supposed to be on
duty at 11:30 last night?"
"And you were not there?"
"That is correct," replied the door-
keeper, fairly trembling as he saw his
dismissal at hand. "But I have a sick
mother, your excellency. I wished to
"That Is quite proper," rejoined M.
Spuler, "and I hope that your mother
will soon recover. But if she should
continue to be ill, which heaven for-
fend, I would like to ask you one fa-
vor"- Here the doorkeeper stared
with wide open mouth. "If you go to
visit your mother once more," added
the minister calmly and quietly,
"please have the kindness not to lock
me in my office again. I had to spend
the night at this desk because I could
not get out."
About Certain Words.
There is often a hint of something
approaching to an ancient kind of slang
n various dignified words in the Eng-
ish language. So respectable a term
as "perspicuity," for instance, mina
that a thing can be "seen through"
easily. The word "apocalypse" means
'lifting off the cover," or, In other
words, the revelation of whatever good
or bad things may be concealed* in a
chest of secrets like Pandora's box pos-
sibly, or maybe only in the lunch
basket of some old Greek workingman.
"Impediment," coming from a Latin
word meaning to watch or hold the
feet, vividly expresses the nature of
anything that entangles or hinders one
n the performance >f any action. Still,
o speak of an impediment in one's
peech is in a certain way to get one's
oot in one's mouth.
"Conspiracy" comes from a Latin
word meaning to breathe together. The
lcture it gives of a group of ,plotters
with their heads thrust up in a com-
>act bunch is vivid enough to render
enjoyable the sarcasm of the old Ro-
nan who invented the term.-Chicago
The Golden Mean.
The motto of the Greeks was "Noth-
ng too much."
An excess of courage is brutality.
An excess of economy is penuriou
An excess of taste is precocity.
An excess of gentleness is timidity.
An excess of confidence is egotism.

THEY ARE ONLY PERMITTED TO ACT
IN CRIMINAL CASES.
A Unanimous Vote Is Not Reguired
In Finding a Verdict; Only a Ma-
jority of Two-Thirds Is Necessary.
Jurors Serve Without Pay.
It may not be generally known that
under the original constitution of the
United States provision is made for the
trial of criminal cases by jury, but not
of civil cases. This in 1789 caused dis-
satisfaction, the people claiming that
the omission was intended to abolish
trial by jury in civil cases, and the sev-
enth amendment was soon adopted, se-
curing the rights of trial by jury in
suits at common law where the value
In controversy shall exceed $20.
In many countries juries decide by a
majority.- In France since 1831 a ma-
lority of two-thirds is required. This is
true also in Germany, where the opera-
tion of the institution js so complicated
and withal so interesting that it is es-
pecially valuable to note some of the
methods adopted in the land of the kai-
ser to secure justice and protect the
rights of the accused.
According to German law, trial by
jury is limited to criminal procedure
and to cases within the competence of
a single court composed of three judges
and twelve jurors. The juror receives
no pay for his services, because the of-
ice of juror is an honorary one.
Many classes of persons are excluded
from jury service. Among these may
be mentioned not only such persons as
have suffered a criminal judgment or
such as are on trial on criminal
charges, but such also as are restricted
In the use of their property by judicial
The law enumerates also certain
classes of persons who ought not to be
summoned for jury service and who
are meant to be excluded, but whose
presence on a jury does not of itself
necessarily iuvalidate a verdict. In
this group are persons under thirty
years of age, persons who within three
years have received support from pub-
lic charities for themselves or their
families and persons who are em-
ployed as servants.
A great many people are as a special,.
privilege exempt from jury service in
Germany. These Include officials, per-
sous employed in a public capacity in
the service of religion, persons in ac-
tive military service and teachers in
the public schools, but attorneys are
not numbered among these so privi-
eged. Physicians, however, and apoth-
ecaries who have no assistants, persons
above sixty-four years of age (nd per-
sons who show that they are unable to
bear the expense of this unpaid jury
service are among the privileged.
The basis of the list from which the
lury is selected is a list of persons who
are eligible to service as lay members
of local courts. None of these lay mem-
bers serves more than five days In a
year, and this provides a large list for

Eventually from each "year list" are
selected thirty jurors who constitute
what is known as the "verdict list."
In any given case these thirty jurors
are brought before the president of the
court, who tells then the name of the
accused and the nature of the offense
charged. The names of the thirty
jurors are written on tickets which are
placed in an urn, from which the final
twelve jurors are drawn by lot. There
may be as many challenges as the
names in the urn exceed twelve.
One or more persons may be drawn
by lot to act in the place of regular
jurors in the event of the disability
of any of the latter. They sit in the
case, take part in the trial, ask ques-
tions if necessary, but assist in ren-
dering a verdict only in case any of
the regular jurors be suddenly in-

unanimous vote is not required in find-

it is eight to four .he is convicted.-

How Dalsao Worked.
In twelve years Balzac wrot seven-
ty-uhne novels besides an abundance of
tales and newspaper articles. When in
tull swing he led the life of a recluse,
refusing to see even his most intimate
friends. He usually went to bed at 8
o'clock, after a light dinner, and got
up at 2 in the morning to resume writ-
ing. At 6 lie took his tub, lying in the
water one hour, after which he drank a
cup of coffee. Werdet, his editor, was
then admitted to bring proofs, take
away corrected ones and wrest, if pos-
sible, fresh manuscript from him. From
9 he wrote fill noon, when he break-
fasted on two boiled eggs and some
bread. From 1 to 0 he continued his
writing. For six weeks or so be would
keep this up; then he would mysterious-
ly disappear for months. t

T'he real boss of the campaign comr-
nittee leaned across tLe table and
w,:.gged a heavy forefinger under
"I've cinched the finest wire that
w?:5. ever pulled, and when them wire
get done pullin' Bill Garret's chances
are dead and rained on or my name's
not Jm Stinson. I've interviewed Miss
Elizabeth Heath, and she's ours."
The emphatic finger stopped as
Brackett sprang to his feet.
"You--you interviewed Miss lHeatb
in my favor?"
"Yes. Why not? She's a power, she
is, with them fellows' wives down in
the Tenth ward, en she's a lady right,
Brackett dropped limply into the
chair behind him, while Stinson poured
out the history of his call upon Miss
Hiac:th, the president of the Hypatia,
in a mixture of slang plentifully sprin-
k]el with "sez I" and "ses she." Stin-
son took much glory to himself that he
should have thought of this clever
stroke just at the critical point of the
campaign. Miss Heath's influence in
certain quarters was unbounded. Down
in the Tenth ward, where the tall ten-
ements gloom above the river, tte little
children of the poor watched for her
coming, and the tired mothers told her
all their trials and troubles, all their
simple ambitions and little Joys, find-
ing a ready sympathy. Stinson had
heard of Miss Heath through that
channel, and it was to those poor, tired
mothers that he looked for a control-
ling vice in the vote th't'w-ould go up
from the Tenth ward. Stiuson had
also counted on the lever wielded by
Miss Heath as president of the Hypa-
tia, the woman's club that led not
only in the city, but in the state feder-
ation. The federation's interests once
aroused and its influence brought to
bear would mean a powerful leavening
at work for his man from one end of
the state to the other. All this and
more he poured into the unheeding ear
of Brackett, whose mind was engrossed
with the one thought, the intolerable
shame that this man should have ap-
pealed to Elizabeth Heath in his name.
Beyond all considerations of the gov-
ernor's office, of his political future,
his mind reeled with the intensilty of
this one thought
Stinson's last words as he stood In
the doorway recalled him:
"I told her that you would call In a
few days and discuss the matter fur-
ther. She seemed right willing to take
a hand after she had chewed the rag a
bit, and I saw as how a call from you
would sorter clinch it. Women folks
has to be made up to. I reckon you
*know all about that? Well, so long,
Mr. Governor,"' and Stinson was gone.
John Brackett turned off the light
and sat still in the glow of the fire.
The warm rays danced over his fast
silvering head, bringing out the lines
of the tired, old-young face and ac-
centuating in grotesque shadow the
droop of his shoulders.
"Her name on the lips of this coarse
Sman! Out of the silence of the years
to hear It for the first time in this man-
ner!" He had been away so long In
the lower part of the state that he had
quite lost sight of the changes that
must have.come to her as well as to
himself. So she was a social leader
now, a club woman. He remembered
the pleasant family circle as he had
known It and wondered if It yet re-
mained unbroken. Out of the coals
sprang the picture of the girl, Eliza-
both Heath, as he had last seen her,
that night when he had told her good.
by forever. He could almost hear him-.
self speaking the slow, fateful, reluct-
ant words, In which he had told her
that the bond between them must be
broken for reasons over Which he had
no control-4a half confidence that, In
the light of present knowledge, he
knew to have been far more cruel,
more cowardly, than a silence that
would have left her the poor solace of
believing him utterly unworthy.
He had scarcely thought of her when
returning to the old town. He had
made the move for political reasons,
and one hotel is much like another to
a man who had forgotten the meaning
of hoAne. Like one groping through
the dark. picking up the tangled
thread of a dropped web, John Brack-
ett threaded back through the mazed
of fifteen years-fifteen!
Brackett's tread grew less resolute,
and his feet seemed to drag just a lit-
tle as he turned into the well remem-
bered square and saw the white col-
umni of the Heath home among the
trees. Old Peter opened the door. A
little grayer about the fringe of wool,
a little more stooped, but the same old
Peter, shuffilog down the hall ahead
The house was painfully familiar.
There In the corner was the little'set-
tee among the palms where they had
sat that rainy day. He remembered
the shadows that shifted over the pale
blue gown that she had worn and felt
again the touch of the soft hand in his
-the hands that were like no .other
hands In all the world,
Old Peter's shuffling steps hbad died
away and the house was stilled. Then
-he heard Ne'"step upon the stair and
down the ball. and Elizabeth stood be.
fore him, unchanged, except for the
graver lines about the firm, sweet
mouth and a deeper light in the dark
eyes. Brackett grasped her hand with
an almost painful force.
"You have been quite a long while
lu claiming your old friends in Warn
field, Mr. Brackett."
It was a merely banal greeting, but
the commonplace served to place Brac-'
kett on the right footing.
"Most certainly, and yet I feel that
I should apologize for this intrusion,
had I not come to make apology for a
greater one that was made iu my
"You allude to Mr. Stinson's call?"
she Inughed lightly. "Mr. ftiuson does
me the honor to consider me a force
in the political situation. I assure you
I appreciate the compliment, as the
president of the Hypatla. But as
Elizabeth Heath, I must beg to decline
Brackett made a slight movement
toward her. "I beg you to consider
the man and his total ignorance as to
the enormity of what he was doing.
It was a distinct shock to me to hear
your name upon his lips, and"-
"I understand," she replied quickly.
'Believe me, I did not connect you
with it in the least. In fact, when he
rnuttioned that you would call to dis-
cuss the matter I was very certain that
you were entirely innocent of all
knowledge of his errand here."
Brackett flushed darkly.
"I trust you will treat this incident
as If it had never happened, and of
course there need be no question of
your support in a political sense."
Here they both laughed uneasily.
"So much so," she responded, "that
I will use every effort to further the
eause of Gayernor Brackett." -..
Brackett sprang to his feet, his dark
face aglow. "Elizabeth!"
Miss Heath held up a warning hand.
"Mr. Brackett, fifteen years have come
and gone since any man has held the
right to call me by that name. We
were speaking of politics."
Brackett submitted mutely as she led
the talk around to other questions of
the day lightly and easily, giving him
time to find himself in the talk of old
friends and places.
"And the general, how is he and your
She looked at him wonderingly. "Is
it possible that with all of Mr. Stin-
soft's information he did not tell you
that I am living here alone with only
Aunt Jane? Father and mother died
within one month of each other ten
Brackett turned abruptly and walked
to the window. He understood many
things now, all the loneliness and the
beautiful truth of this woman, who
hod lived her life so bravely. The sun-
light in the square was blinding. Per-
haps that was why his eyes were wet
as he walked swiftly down the long
room and drew her hands into his.
"Elizabeth, there was fate in Stin-
son's call, the fate that has watched
us both through all these years. There
were ghosts that knocked and waked
my starved heart last night, ghosts
that would not be silenced. I was a.
coward then, a coward not brave
enough to humble my pride and tell
you of the burden that lay between us,
and when death removed that burden
It was too late, I thought, but I am

Then there's the man who walks
down to his office every morning, rain

more distant his home from his office
the more he will talk about it, and he
will tell you that he has become so ac-
customed to it that the only time he
can get an extra thrill out of it is when
the streets are deep with snow and the
wind is blowing a hurricane.-
Heaven may forgive the man who

riser is not a criminal simply because
the law does riot designate his of-
fense as a crime. But It is admitted
that the law has its defects. Nothing
can approach the look of superiority

A THRIFTY TENOR.
Tamagno Wnlied, but iHa carriage
Bill Haa to be Paid.
Several years ago a tenor named
'ramagno was engaged to come to
America and sing at the Metropolitan
Opera House, New York. He was paid
$1,000 a night. This is a sum which
woul4 make many people willing to'
put up with smahl extra expenses. But
not so Tamagno. Before leaving Eu-
rope lie made a stipulation that he be
furnished with a carriage to and from
the opera house every night. This was
inserted in the contract.
When he arrived he found a carriage'
waiting at the pier. He rode uptown-
always at the expense of the opera
company-and took a look around,
Then he decided to put up at the Marl-
borough hotel, which happens to be
only three short blocks from the Metro-
politan Opera House. Every time he
sang he walked up to the opera house,
refusing to take a carriage. He said
he had just as soon walk. When ft
came time for him to return to Europe'
he presented a bilf for over $200 "for
carriages to and from the opera."
"But you didn't take a carriage," said-
the manager of the opera company.
Tamnagno bowwed low and In-vited the
manager to look at ft'e contract. He
repeated the same suggestion whenever
anything was said about it. The re-
sult, of course, was that the $200 had
to be paid. He stood out for it with
as much insistence as if he hadn't
seen a dollar for a month, and all the
time he was getting $1,000 a night.
