The word "missing" applied to a ship
brings all hope of safety to an end and
settles the loss of friends ashore and
of the underwriters, says Mr. Joseph
Conlrad, writing In the Lndondon Mail.
But the word "overdue" only strength-
ens the fears already, born in many
honies ashore and opens the door for
speculation in the market of risks.
Within the memory of the present gen-
eration a missing ship has never been
knownto turn up. Aut the name of an
overdue vessel, trembling, as it were,
on the edge of the fatal heading, has
been known to appear as "arrived."

SAll For Fifty
By RITA KELLEY

He was a squat china piece with mer-
cenary eyeholes and a slit down his
back. It was a standing Joke at Miss
Folke's boarding "home" that when
any one dropped a spot on the table-
cloth he had to drop a oin into the
pig's hungry sides. Oncr a week the
porker was slaughtered and the pro-
ceeds used for flowers.
Miss Mattie was dressing/aor a walk
one morning when the peaked landlady
who quarreled with all her trades peo-
ple came to the door, pig in hand.
"Miss Mattie," she said, "would you
like to buy some flowers for the table?'
"Delightedl" Miss Mattle finished,
pinning a huge bunch of violets on her
gray coat "What kind shall I get"
"Well"--Miss Folke sat down on the
edge of the divan i nd began shaking
the' pig--'there's carnations and roses,
and they usually throw in some ferns
or leaves. 'Jst do as you please about
it. I thought there was more money
in here." She thumped the pig's head
on her knee until the last coin fell out.
"Only 65 cents!" Miss Folke had a
way of .making people conscious of
their shortcomings. The pig looked
"But aren't you glad you didn't get
your tablecloth all spotted up?"
"Oh, that isn't it. But we shall have
to save some money for Easter Spn-
day, and you can get so few dfowers tfo
50 cents." Miss Folke had a grievance
against her trades people, and they re-
taliated by invariably giving her short
measure. "Well"-she stacked up a half
dollar in pennies and nlckels--"I guess
that will have-to do."
"How many ought I to get for 50
"They'll turn up their noses at you
at a florist's and give you two or three
stale flowers that will be all withered
the second day. You'd better go to the
street booth over by the 'L' station and
tell them If they give you good flowers
you'll come again."
"Stick up their noses at mer' said
Miss Mattie, ignoring Miss Folke's sug-
gestion. "Don't ever worry, Miss
Folke. I'll get some flowers that will
make you gasp with surprise and pleas-
ure. I'd just like to see them stick up
their noses at me," she threatened as
she paused to smile bewilderingly at
Miss Folke before closing the outside
She passed several exclusive florists'
shops before she found one to her sat-
isfaction. It was by far the handsom-
est of all. Gripping her 50 cents inside
her glove, she swept in like a breath
and stood in the midat of the most
beautiful flowers she had ever seen. A
remarkably handsome young man was
standing in the rear beside a bank of
palms, holding some smilax.
"Some flowers," she said, oiling and
nodding at him.
He looked up surprised. hen, look-
ang at some one behind t 'alms, he
turned. &poke to one of tf assistants
and came forward eagerly.
"Now, what would you ike?" He
waved his hand 'racetully toward the
masses of roses and crimson carna-
"Oh, beautiful!" breathed Miss Mat-
tie in an ecstasy.. "I should like"-she
*clutched the coins stowed away in her
glove and smiled dazzlingly-"a flower
for a penny."
"What'" For a moment it looked as
though the young man was going to
Miss Mattie's smile became momen-
tarily more bewitching.
"Yes," she continued, whirling her
muff airily around her hand; "1 just
slaughtered the boarding house pig.
and I want all the nice flowers you can
give me for 50 cents. Aren't those love-
ly!" She pointed to some rare orchids.
The young man was amused. Miss
Mattie was good to look at and had an
unmistakable air of being accustomed
to beautiful things. Yet 50 cents for
Orchids, which she distluctly seemed to
favor! He coughed apologetically.
"Flowers are rather expensive," he
"Yes, I know," laughed Miss Mattle.
"These must be terribly high." She
touched the violets on her coat linger-
ingly. "Think of the money you extort
from rich young men. And I've only 50
cents. It was all the pig could spare.
We had to save some for Easter, you
know, and no one got many spots on
the tablecloth this week."
The florist answered her smile.
"The pig gets the money for the
spots," she explained.
The young man looked as though he
were immensely interested-in the pig.
"What would you like?" he asked
"I want just the most nice fresh
flowers you can give' 'r a half dol-
lar. It makes no difference what kind.
They told me I couldn't get any for so
little money." Miss Mattie smiled.
The man bowed low.
"I'll see what I can do for you," he
said and strode to the rear of the store.
Miss Mattle watthed him admiringly
as he stopped to speak to one of the
men before he entered the ice room.
She had not known such nice young
men kept florist's shops. She moved a
step or two to the right of the palms in
order to see him more distinctly.
He was taking down one crimson
carnation after the other, a spray of
narcissus,,.some roses, an orchid. Mls
Mattie looked away, afrnii to trust her
own eyes. He seemed rather an easily
embarrassed young man-or was ho
amused? Miss Mattle did not dare to0
risk the doubt, for itf he saw her ob-
serving him he might stop adding to
the Sbunch. Miss Mat tle had reasons of
her own for wishing as big a bouquet
as possible. It signified In a way her
sphere of influence on the susceptibili-
ties of the young man.
When he emerged from the room
Miss Mattie said, "Oh!" Miss Mattle
knew how to say It long and expresh-
The young man turned from the desk
and looked at her. He flushed ever so
slightly and smiled.
"All those for 50 cents?" Miss Mat-
tie had her muff under her chin. Her
eyes were wide with wonder.

Jack shrugged his shoulders.
"You wanted to see what she would

"I suppose. you think you do, pa!m-

They had passed out into the street
and stood looking, after the girl with
the huge package of flowers. The ex-
florist looked squarely into the dis-
agreeable eyes of the man facing him.

When I got Phyllli alone in the con-
servatory I promptly proposed to her
again. Fact is I wouldn't have come
to the ball at all it It hadn't been that I
intended to try again to win her.
"Jack," bald Phyllis demurely, "I
wish you would bring me a drink of

ery time just about the same way. I
knew there was no use arguing, so I
went for the water. Only I brought
But when a fellow comes back with
the lemonade after such anincident as
that and finds another chap holding the
lady's hand and his other arm hover-
ing suspiciously along the back of the

sore. I know I did. As for Joe Had-
den, he looked bored when I came in
and half swore.
"I beg pardon," said I. "If I'm ni-
Phyllis' eyes twinkled, and I knew
she was laughing at me.
Just then Dawcy Graham came in.
"This one is ours, Phyllis," said he,
holding up his card; "the third waltz,
"Thank you, Jack," said Phyllis as
she drank the lemonade.
I went down to the smoking room for
a cigarette" to steady my nerves. I
don't know and for that matter don't
care what Joe did.
However, I had the better of him, for
I took Phyllis into supper.
"Accept him, Phyllis," I growled sur-
"Not yet," said Phyllis.
"Qoing to?" I questioned in the same
Phyllis' brows met in a perplexed
frown. She appeared to be pondering
the problem very deeply.
"I've thought of a way to settle it be-
tween you," she condescended to reply
at length. "Tomorrow morning I'm go-
ing up to Grovehurst Hall, and you andl
Joe are to run a race up there in your
autos. The one who gets there first--
will-will win the race," finished Phyl-
I knew what that meant. If Had-
don's touring car wouldn't be able to
beat my dinky little runabout It would
be because he had a breakdown. I sup-
pose I must have looked what I
thought, for Phyllis looked at me in-
"Well," she questioned primly, "what
is it now? Don't you think it is worth
your while to enter that race ?
"The prize is worth it, Phyllis," s"Id

lis blushed the sweetest rosy red. '"ut

"No," she said, "I don't; but, you
know, beggars can't be choosers." *
That settled it. I would make the
"Will there be a booby prize award-
ed?" I asked.
Phillis shook her head. I was seeded
with a bright idea.
"You said you were going over your-
self," I ventured. "I ought at least to
have a consolation prize. Will you
make the trip with me?"
Phyllis looked grave.
"I'm afraid it will look like favorit-
ism," said Phyllis, "but I guess I can."
"Thanks," I said. "With a good mas-
cot I'll stand a better show."
."Am I a good mascot?' asked Plhyl-
"May I never have a better" I re-
plied devoutly. "I'm willing to take
chances on you for a good deal more
than a motor race."
Phyllis liked that. Really, I feel as if
I were quite clever at tines. Then she
took the wind all out of me again.
"The race will decide that," said she
If the way I fixed that runabout up
for the run had anything to do with It
I felt sure I ought to stand a-chance at
least. I got a repair man to look it

onomeut we had started the twenty
miles. We hustled down the road like
a monkey that bad dropped its tall
through the slot and twisted it around
-* trolley cable.
The cool November wind sent a great
color up into Phyllis' cheeks, and a
luxuriant golden lock fell loose and
swept across her cheek. I was making
up for any time we had or had not lost,
ind I wondered if she wasn't a bit
nervous at the harebrained pace.
"Too fast, Phyllis?" I questioned.
"Just a little," she replied.
I pulled the lever open another notch,
and we could actually feel the machine
take a. fresh jump forward.
Phyllis clutched at my arm.
"Oh!" she cried, with a terrified lit-
tle scream. "I meant to go slower."
"Can't do it," I replied grimly.
"There's too much at stake on this
Phyllis looked at me from the tail of
"If we have a spill we'll be half
killed," she pouted.
"I'd have demonstrated my good
faith anyhow," I retorted. "You'd know
I'd done my best."
The runabout hit a stone that lay at
the side of the road, and I'm certain
the front wheel traveled fifty feet be-
fore it hit the dust again.
"Oh," gasped Phyllis again, "do be
careful, Jack, or we'll be killed!"
The machine was already going its
limit or I would have opened it some
more. I made the pretense of putting
on more speed. I was having my re-

as I could for the wind, "but 've sim-

Phyllis could not see him.
"There are no auto tracks ahead," I
observed. "If he's anywhere he must
be back of us."
I sized up the track ahead and turn-
ed to look back. There was an auto
"Phyllis," I murmured reproachfully,
"you said you couldn't see any one."
"That's not Joe," said Phyllis, with
"How do you know?" I asked. "It's
a yellow car, and his is the only yellow
touring car around here."
"I don't care," persisted Phyllis; "it's
not Joe Haddon. So there!"
"We'll take no chances," I said mali-
ciously. "It may be. You weren't even
able to see an auto when you looked
the first time."
"Do you think I'm deliberately lying
to help Joe?" asked Phyllis icily.
"No," I answered, "but the issue is
too important to trust to such poor eye-
"You goose!" said Phyllis Irreverent-
The puff puff of the big machine was
close behind us now, and I would have
given wdrlds to have. looked around
and to sec who was in it, but the risk
was too great. Another mile and we
would be at the Hall. So long as I kept
the middle of the path the big car
could not pass us. L determined to
"Get over," shouted a hoarse voice
behind us. "That's not fair play."
"All's fair in war and"- I said it low
and left the sentence unfinished. Phyl-
lis heard it, and I felt her small gloved
hand rest ever so lightly on my arm.
"Go it," she urged.
As we swung through the Hall gates
and ran up the broad avenue the tour-
ing car passed us. It contained only

"Phyllis," I said, "did you know all
the time that that was Daweyy'l
"And where's Joe?" I demanded.
"I don't know," replied Phyllis. "I
told him 'No' last night." ;
"And what made Dawcy follow us?"
I persisted, still.unsatisfied.
"I thought it would add a little t the
excitement of the chase," said Phyllis,
nestling into the hollow of my arm "if
he were to borrow the machine and
come too. Don't you think it did?"r
But it didn't matter what I thought.
"If you hadn't been perfectly blind

Temple Bar." I thought 1 saw some-
thing that mlht have been the ghost
of an arch hewn out of the solid fog.
The top of It, though It was not lofty,
was lost to view. Temple Bar, now
gone forever from the place where its
gates once swung in the wall of the
old city-it was here her gracious
majesty Queen Victoria of England
was wont to receive the keys of the
city from the hands of the lord mayors
when she drove in state to St. Paul's
cathedral. We threaded Fleet street,
but could not see to the farther shore.
"Here is her majesty's tower," said
Prentice, but nothing of it was visible,
not one stone upon another. We cross-
ed London bridge almost without
knowin~it. The waters of the Thames,
which are but condensed fog, were in-
visible from the parapet, and the steam
ferries were picking their way cau-
tiously and looking very like marine
monsters In a muddy aquarium. We
crawled through, the tunnel for foot
traffic under the Thames, which was
like a hole in the fog, and for hours
carried the sky about on our shoulders.
It was a woolly, greasy and 11l smelling
sky. Our nostrils were clogged with
cinders, like chimney flues, and there
were smudges all over our faces.
Sometimes for a moment or two we
saw a spot overhead that was like f
pale red wafer, and we know it for
the sun, now lost to us. The lamps
that burned all day were like glow-
worms for dimne s, and so we e.Tplor-

The Imnpudent Reporler.
In the year 1874 the Marquis of Dut-
ferin and Ava, then the governor gen-
ernl of Canada, visited Clcago. Con-
cerning that visit he has a Irltten: "The
day following my arrival spent in bed
with a very bad nervous headache, a
fact which was announced to the pub-
lic In the morning by a sensational par-
agraph in all the papers to the follow-
ing effect: 'His royal nibs down with ,.
a colic! Doctor sent for.' In fact, all
the time I was at Chicago the papers
teemed with similar elegancies, the
concluding leading article In the lead-
ing Journal being headed 'Goodby, Old
Dufferin.' Another paper devoted two
of its columns to a description of an in-
terview between one of its reporters
and myself, in which I was described
as sitting in a silk dressing gown, suck-
ing sugar and water through a straw.
while 1 communicated to my interlocu-
tor-whom I always addressed as 'old
fellow'-various state secrets and a
minute detail of my private affairs.
though, it is needless to say, the author
of the narrative had never been within
a hundred yards of me,"
A famous lawyer once had a sin
gular case to settle. A doctor came
to him in great distress. Two of*
ters living in the same house had
babies of equal age who so reSem-
bled each other that their own moth-
ers were unable to distinguish them
when they were together, and it inlp-
pened that by the carelessness of the
nurses the children had become mixed.
How were the mothers to make sure
that they received back their own in-
"But, perhaps," suggested the law-
yer, "the children weren't changed at
"Oh, but there's no doubt that they
were changed!" said the doctor.
"Are you sure of It ?"
"Well, If that's so, why don't you
change them back again? I don't Cee
any difficulty in the case."
When the wind blows from the south
and one of the islanders of south Ice-
land wishes to communicate with the
mainland he puts his letters into a well
corked bottle, and to insure their de-
livery he incloses at the same time a
plug of twist tobacco or a cigar. The
wind speedily impels the bottle to the
shore of the mother island, where peo-
ple are generally on the lookout.

During a visit to a friend in the

venture witl a boarhound which he
describes In his "Reminiscences:"
S There was an enormous Danish boar-
hound which had, unperceived by us,
followed Mrs. Harlstone from the li-
Sbrary. He pushed by without cere-
mony and proceeded until he reached
the lady, wbo was some distance in
advance. He then carefully took the
skirt of her dress with hismuouth and
t carried it like an accomplished train
r bearer until she reached the bottom of
r the stairs and the garden, when he let
t go the dress and gazed as an interest-

The Tarantula Killing Wasps.
The tarantula killer is a bustling
anquiet creature. When running on thf
around its wings vibrate continuously.
When it sights its prey it flies in cir-
cles around it. The tarantula trem-
bles violently; now runs and hides;
now, rising rampant, shows signs of
fight. The watchful huntress finds a
favorable -Imoment, darts upon its' vic-
tim with curved body and thrusts iu
its sting if possible into the soft ab-
domen. Often the spider is at once
paralyzed, but a secod'ndnd even e
third wound is sometimes necessary.
The victor seizes its motionless prey
with its jaws and drag it to a hole
previously dug. She thrust itWin, de-
posits an eg: upon It and eoters it up.
In this case the bulk of the tarantula
insures sufficient food for the off-
spring, and one alone.is provided, as
Seems to be the case with the cicada

and her ilk, which select smaller prey,
garner many, rarely sealing a cell ere

Earthquakes generally do their work
with great rapjdity,. but there are ex-
eeptions. While Caracas and Lisbon
were destroyed in a few minutes, the
Calabrian earthquakes beginning in
1783 lasted four years. Earthquakes
travel across the earth at velocities
varying between several hundred and
several thousand feet a second, the
greater the intensity of the shock the
greater being the velocity. The sea
waves that frequently accompany
.,ari'tqnakes also travel at tremenouonr
:pee's. A submarine earthquake near
'h1 cont:t of Japan fn I854 gave rise t,

The Dog Spilder.
The giant of the whole spider family
fs the "hound" or "dog" spider of Mad-
agascar. Its body weighs almost a
pound, and each of its eight legs is,
longer and larger in diameter than tho
common cedar pencil. Each. of its
mandibles is three-fourths of an inch in
length and very strong. The dog spider
does not spread a net and lie in wait
for its prey, as do the gignatic bird
spiders of "Ccylon, 'but "follows the
trail" in exact imitation of a hound.
It will follow a faint scent to and fro
through the weeds and underbrush un-
til the course is ascertained and then
suddenly dart off in a bee line and
quickly overtake the lizard, rat, mole
or other animal of which It is in pur-
suit. It has been known to capture
and kill lizards a foot or more in length,
and Professor Barnaby tells of one
which pounced upon and killed a full
grown rat.. The dog spider is'said to
be the only variety among the larger
species of spiders which Is absolutely
nonvenomous, there being no more dan-
ger in its bite than there is in that of a
squirrel or a rabbit.

advertise his coffee with striking ef-

ing, "If one grain of our coffee was
placed on the first square of a checker-
Ioard, two on ithe second, four on the
third, and sBo on, doubling throughout
the whole sixty-four squares, the to-
tal number arrived at would be 18,446,-

915,894,584,601 pounds of coffee. This
would represent 331,701,808,107 car
loads, and a freight train to carry it
would be 3,957,841,400 miles In length.
It would reach around the earth 158,-
813 times and would extend 42 times
the distance between the earth and the

would cost at 28 cents a pound $S72,-

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
reaiized. It stands the highest for its won-
derful cures of the most distressing cases.
If you need a medicine you should have the

A New York journalist once went
down to Atlanta to interview Joel Chan-

he told the creator of Uncle Remus
that he was going to "write him up"
the kindly southerner was immediate-

old friend, Simon Sugg.
"Simon Sugg," he said, "was an odd
old fellow who used to live down state.
I knew him well when I was a boy.
One day a friend met him.

ODD MOON E.LIEFS.
-Ihe Orba of might a Food Foe ths
Certain it is that a belief in the mooni
as the abode of the fathber- was widely
spread among the people speaking thob
Aryan languages. To the present d:I'
the peasants in Swabia are heard to
say, "May I go to the moon if I did it,"
instead of "May I die if I di.i It." Nay,
people who work on the Sabaimh day
are threatening even now that they
will go to the moon-that is, that they
will die and be punished in the noon.
A more startling idea--pei<-nliar. 11
would seem, to India-was tat;t of tht
moon serving as the food of the gods.
And yet, though it sounds str.unge to
us, It was not so very unnatural an
Idea after all. The ;:o l. though invlsi
ble, had been located in tihe sky. In
the same sky tle golden moon. often
compared to a io.iuL. of golden butter
was seen regularly to decrease. And
if it were being consumed by anybody)
by whom could it be consumed if not
by the gods? Hence tleli ;- .]y conclu
sion that it was so and that It was, in
fact, this food which secured to the
gods their immortal life.
If so muhe had once been granted.
then came he i'u.',. How was the
moon gradually Increasel, and restored
to its fullness? And here the old su-
persition came in that the souls of the
departed entered the moon, so that the
waxing of the moon might readily be
,accounted for by3 this nio. ancIent ar-
tlcle of faith. Hence I:;e systeimatized
belief that the moon wanes while it 1s
being eaten by the a'l and that it
waxes while it is be:ut filled by the
departed souls el.e:cr:itg it. A last con-
clusion was thuat. l.e gO .l.- w\\ ,, ; ed-

Rousilan Army Odditiem.
Many, indeed, are the curious cus-
toms connected with the Russian
army, says a writer in a London jour-
nal. For instance, none but giants are
allowed in the Preobrashenski body-
guard regiment. To the Ismallowski
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
distinction between officers of the
guards and those serving in line regi-
ments is most marked, a guard lieu-
tenant until recently taking precedence
over a captain of the line. Further-
.more the pay of infantry officers in line
regiments is ludicrously small. What
the infantry private's lot is can better
be imagined than described.
Tar and Feathers In 4189.
In England the penalty of tar and
feathers was introduced in 1189, when
Richard I., before setting out for the
Holy Land, ordained, in. order to pre-
serve the discipline of his fleet, that
whosoever should be convicted of theft
should first have his head shaved; that
bolling pitch should then be poured
upon it, and a cushion of feathers (de
la plume d'orciller) shaken over it. He
was afterward to be put on shore at
the first place the ship touched at.
though, after- a bathism of boiling
pitch, the poor wretch would have lit-
tle life left in him. In modern times
the practice has found favor with the
populace as a means of readily exe-
cutirg justice on an offender -whom
the law perhaps shows no anxiety to
Hard to Please.
"The only perfectly beautiful woc
man,"- said a well known sculptor,
"must have been a goddess. I never
saw a perfectly beautiful woman in
my life, nor even heard of the exist-
ance of one. As for Cleopatra, a learned
Englishman has discovered in some an-
cient gossip written on papyrus that
she had the foxy red hair and the
freckled skin of all the Ptolemy family
and was obliged to resort to hair dyes
and cosmetics to keep up her reputa.
tion for looks. But perhaps the sever
est shock to the feelings is to learn that
Mary, queen of Scots, actually squint
ed, and that Mme. Du Barry wore a
set of false teeth."
People Who Live In Nests.
Travelers who have returned from
the heart of Africa and the Australa-
sian continent tell wonderful stories of
nest building people who inhabit the
wilds of those countries. In the bush-
men of Australia we find perhaps the
lowest order of men that are known.
They are so primitive that they do not
know enough to build even the sim-
plest form of hut fcr shelter. The
nearest they can approach to it is to
gather a lot of tiigs and grass and,
taking them into a thicket or jungle,
build a nest for a hoine. The nest is
usually built large enough for the fam.
ily, and if the latter be very number
ous then the nests are of a very large
si.e. Sometimes the foliage above will
form a natural covering, but there is
never any attempt at constructing a
protection from the rain and storms.

Ned Oramer shoved the little canoe
into the water and waited a moment,
the tying rope in his hand. While he
waited he looked at Anne Prepott, who
was standing on the very edge of the
wharf reading a letter. Anne's dress
was of cerulean blue linen, and the set-
ting sun made her hair red gold. Final-
ly Ned spoke, albeit the picture was
rarely pretty and appealed to him.
"Ready, Anne?" he called.
"All right:" said Anne, but she didn't
move, and Ned' waited some more pa-
tiently, for he knew he was soon to
have his innings and was in no hurry
to take the bat. But when he spoke the
second time he said firmly:
Anne tore the letter in two, threw it
into the water and came to the little
bark, where she settled herself Indian
fashion on her knees in the business
end of the canoe. She held it steadily
while he stepped in and bestowed his
long length of limb opposite; then she
let'the boat drift while she rolled tip
her cerulean blue sleeves. It was one
of Anne's peculiarities that she always
did the paddling herself. It was not
merely that the attitude and motion
were becoming to her, though she was
aware of her good points, like most well
balanced girls. It was simply that she
preferred having the men at a disad-
vantage-at her mercy, as it were. They
always looked awkward with nothing
to do, and it seemed hard for them to
keep up the conversation.
Ned Cramer was a little different,
He always made himself supremely
comfortable, and, while he didn't look
at her as much as most of the fellows
did, his glance always put her on her
The quick strokes of her paddle sent
them rapidly downstream. When they
reached the first bend they passed the
letter, which was skimming along the
"We'll go down to the island and see
how long it will take for the letter to
get there," said Anne, and Ned assent-
ed lazily. He lit a cigarette and smok-
ed awhile in silence. When he spoke
his words were, as usual, to the point
"When are you going to marry me,
Anne, elaborately surprised, held her
paddle in midair in a charming pose
for a moment; then it dropped into
the water with a splash.
"I have no present intention of mar-
rying you at all," she said.
"Then it's a good time to form an
intention. I'll help you." He smiled
persuasively. "Make it October. Fall
weddings are so pretty, and that will
give you two months to burn all your
Sold love letters and make your good
The blood rose under the tan on her
cheeks, but her only answer -was a
vigorous and renewed paddling. Ned
threw away the stub of his cigarette
and felt in his hip pocket for his to-
bacco pouch. If he was nervous he
did not show it.
"Shall we say October, then?" he
queried, adding with a note of tender.
ness in his voice: "You have made me
very happy, Anne. You will not re

"No," he said; "you act as if yoet

When she regained her balance and
thought of Ned she discovered him
turning the canoe right side up and
paying no attention at all to her. Her
first thought was that it was fortunate
he had caught hold of the boat. Then
she gasped in amazement, for he had
let it go, and it was floating down
"Ned Cramer, are you crazy?" she
screamed. "Catch it!"
"I'll take you to the island first," he
answered and waded through the shal-
low water to the bald, sandy spot they
called an island. It happened that

when she saw the great turtle she bad
stepped on come straight toward her,
craning its bald, snaky head from side
to side. The tears rolled unheeded down
her face and mingled with the water
that dripped from her stringy, wet hair.
She sobbed helplessly and with horri-
flied eyes was still watching the turtle,
which had stopped in his tracks and
was leering at her, when she heard
Ned's voice. Never had anything
sounded so good to her ears.
"Do you love me, Anne?"
How one will suffer for pride's sake!
She turned her face toward him, un-
mindful of tears:
"I hate you!" she sobbed.
"All right," he called cheerfully; "I'll
just paddle around a little, and when
you're ready you call, and I'll come. As
I said before, the shakes won't be apt
to bite unless you should happen to
step on them or something."
He turned the canoe and took a doz-
en strokes, feeling like a beastly cad
every time the paddle touched the wa-
ter. Then a voice, wild and desperate
with fear, shrieked:
"Ned, come back!"
"Coming," he called. "Wait, Anne."
But Anne, terrified beyond endur-
ance by the advancing turtle, ran into
the water, and he pulled her, a drip-
ping, sobbing, disheveled figure, into
the shelter of the canoe and his-arms.
"You'll never regret it, Anne," he
"But you will," she sobbed. "I'll-
I'll lead you an awful life!"

"There's not much to tell. Just as
father had broken the news of our loss
to me your letter came. I showed it to
him. He said it was not true, so I
thought it a ruse-that you had heard
of our reverses and did not want to
wed a pauper."
He groaned and attempted to speak,
but she hastily continued
"Father went west to look after some
claim he thought be had out there, and
I came here to teach. That Is alL"
"No; not all Listen," he cried. He
told her of the remarks, his test, his
departure and ignorance of her loss.
"Forgive me, Mabel, and take me
"No," she said proudly. "You didn't
believe in my love. You had to put it
to a paltry test"
He was thinking hard for the right
thing to say.
"Then let me woo you again, not as
the Mabel Wallace I knew in New
York, but as the country schoolteacher
to whom I came just now with a heart
full of admiration for her kind heart
and stout arm. Mabel, look up! You've

came running in.
"Oh, g'wan," he said to Thornton.
"Y6u know'd her all the time and pre-
tended you jest guessed at her havin'
red hair and specs."
Thornton laughed happily as he looked
at the soft, squirrel colored hair and
the eyeglasses. "Well, I meant differ-
ent red and specs, but I do know her."
"Be you her beau?"
"Yes, I am her beau, and you'll have
a new teacher. Here, take this for tell-
ing me of the fire." And he gave the
delighted boy a silver dollar.

nan made for the road in long orfdef ,
the boy keeping pace by a quick trot,
explaining with many elaborations the
particulars of the fire.
"My! Teacher was jest more than
layin' on to it with a stick. I never
.'posed she could hit out like that"
"Hasn't she laid it on to you yet?" ,
laughed the hunter.
"Naw. She ain't teched one on us
yit. I bet the boys would behave if
they'd seen her beat that fire."
The hunter was occupied for a
ment with conjuring the image of |
'teacher hitting' the fire."
"Say, young man, has your teacher
got red hair, and does she wear
"Yes. How did yer know?" he ask-
"I just felt it."
When the hunter came up to the
men, he said to the farmer.
"I came to help put out a fire, but I
see you have done good work," gazing
at the blackened ground.
"We only got here to the tail end of
It," explained the farmer. "The school-
teacher got here first, and she fit it like
a tiger. Guess some of you hunters
set it on fire."
The hunter laughed and walked on,
remembering the match, but he felt
no compunctions. "A man has the
right to set fire to his own if he wants
to," he thought. "Suppose it would
be only decent in me to go and thank
the schoolma'am. Wonder how I can
make her a substantial token of grati-
tude without offense?"
"Here, boy!" he turned and called to
Johnny, who lingered near tile ruins.
"Do you want to earn a quarter?"
"You bet yer boots!"
"Then take me to your teacher, if It's
not too far."
"It's jest down the next road a ways,
and mebby she's' stopped in at the
school'us down the lane."
"On a Baturdayf' he asked skep-
"Yes. She writes her letters there?'
They relapsed into lslence, Johnny
making plans for the Investment of
his quarter and the man absorbed in
thoughts of a bitter, cynical trend. A
few months before he had been the
happy, accepted lover of a beautiful
girl who was of an old, aristocratic
family in moderate cireumstances
Some pessimistic relatives of his bad
intimated that his wealth and not him-
self was the object of her adoration,
The little shaft, though resented, ran-
kled and lingered and grew until in a
moment of desperation and ill judg-
ment he sent her a letter saying that
his fortune had been swept away in
the late panic and offering to release
her from the engagement.
He waited in suspense for her reply,
which came promptly. She coldly and
briefly agreed that the engagement
should be broken, owing to change of
Wounded through and through, he
went abroad, aimlessly wandering from
one place to another, hating all women
for what one had wrought
He was wondering now as he walk-
ed along the dusty highway what had
become of her. Had she landed an-
other millionaire? What a.useless,
helpless wife she would make for a
poor man! Then he thought of the
struggling, sordid existence of this
schoolma'am. In his mind's eye he
pictured her-lank, gawky and specta-
cled, beating the flames.
"Even at that," he thought, "she is
more to be loved than a woman who
feared poverty. Faith, I believe I'll
marry the schoolma'am and settle
down to a country life if she'll have
A turn into a lane brought them
to the little schoolhouse, and Johnny
looked in through the open door.
"She's in there," he said.
"All right. You needn't come. Much
obliged." When he entered the school-
room, which was darkened, he dimly
discerned a form at a desk on the plat-
form. Her head was resting wearily
on the big dictionary.
"I beg your pardon. I came to thank
you for saving my property."
IIe had come nearer now. She lifted
her head, and he saw her.
"Mabel!" he gasped.
"I didn't know," she said coldly,
"that it was your property I was sav-
ing until afterward, but of course it
made no difference."
"Mabel! You, a schoolteacher, here-
"Because," she answered bitterly, "in

have lost your fortune my father lost
every cent he had."

A RIDE UP PIKE'S PEAK.
It Is Liable to Almost Literally Barst
Your Head Open.
To take a pleasure ride that almost
literally bursts your head open is a
novelty thrilling enough, it is to be pre-
sumed. for the most eager thrill seeker.
But that Is what often happens to
him who essays the dizzy heights of
Pike's peak, 14,000 feet above sea level.
"I went up on the cog road from
Manitou." said a, Baltimore man, "in
company with a yiarty of tourists, and
before we reached the Halfway House
there were two wld: .exhibited such
positive symptoms oof distress that at
the first stop they had to leave and
take the next train down. The rest of
us continued. In a seat a little in front
of us was a young girl who had been
growing gradually hysterical and whom
we had been watching curiously to
see what would happen next.-It hap-
pened. Suddenly she threw up her
hands and fell backward, with blood
gushing from her mouth, ears, eyes and
nose. The conductor, who was evi-
dently accustomed to such scenes, told
her escort to lay her flat on her back,
as the pressure was less there than at
the head height in a sitting posture.
Then, at the next station, she was tak-
en off and sent back to Manitou by the
wagon road. They didn't dare to take
her down by train, as the quick change
to the denser air might have proved
"Well, we kept going and reached
the top. I thought I'd take a short run
in the fine, rarefied air, and I did-
took a dozen steps, when my heart be-
gan to beat like a trip hammer, and I
concluded that running at that height
was not for me. They told me you
couldn't boil eggs or beans up there. I]
.don't know, because I didn't try. We
had our pictures taken sitting on a
rock up in thi;t barren spot, where
nothing will grow but the edelweiss,
and bou:.:it soine souvenirs. Then we
came down, and, so far as I am con-
cerned, they can level the mountain

The Word UWJcehmalle ."
The word "blackmailing," derlygA
from the Aliglo-Saxon "mal" (tax) asd
the old French "maille" (a coin of small
value), was originally applied to rents
paid In kind. in order to distinguish
them from payments made in silver or
"white" payments. About the six-
teenth century It was applied to money
paid as the price of protection from
freebooters. This was declared Illegal
by Elizabeth, but flourished in the
highlands of Scotland until after Cul-
loden, in 1745.
"Blackmall" is mentioned in Arch-
bishop Hamilton's Catechisme (1552).
One of the most picturesque levers
of blackmail was Rob Roy, who grew
famous in this connection
year 1730. In its modern
mail is the extortion of
threat of public exposure.
Valuable Queen *ees.
Just as there are valuable strains Ia
horses, cattle and other stock, so there
are varieties of queen bees which are
worth many hundred times their
weight in gold. The* most valuable
strain is the Italian, and many Italian
bee farmers demand and receive with-
out question prices ranging from $50
to $200 for a- slgle queen bee of a
certain kind. Such bees are sent all
over the world. The owner of a bee
farm near Ottawa, Canada, goes to
Europe annually and brings back with)
him bees of an aggregate value of
thousands of dollars. He is enabled
through the agency of an Italian firm
t effect an insurance upon the most
luable of his queens.-Boston Tnran

On a hazy, warm breezed Indian
summer day a huntsman trod through
the thickly'grown brush that bordered
thte country road. Once or twice he
stopped and looked about in apprecia-
tion of the day and the beauty of the
country. Then he lighted a cigar, toss-
ing the match aside before it was ex-
tinguished. By the time he had van-
ished from view the half spent match
had accomplished a rivulet of fire that
ran merrily through the brush which
skirted the woods.
Mabel Wallace, coming down the old
sawmill road, saw the crackling fire
and hastened her pace. She noted the
quickening breeze blowing toward the
woods and the stretch- of dry, parched
grass and brush that intervened. She
knew that If the flames were not extin-
guished at once the whole piece of
woods would go. She caught up a stout
stick as she ran, and when she reached
the farther end of the running fire she
began a vigorous beating.
"Say, teacher, I'll help you," squeaked
a piping voice, which she recognized as
belonging to the'boy in the First Read-
er class, next to the foot.
"Johnny, run down to the first white
house beyond the woods and tell them
to send help. They have a telephone.
Ask them to notify all the neighbors,"
she directed between beats.
Johnny was reluctant to leave a bon-
fire of such proportions as this was as-
suming, but he detected the "teacher"
in her tone g4 b oncluded to obey.
"That's the stuff!" she next heard
and looked up to meet the approval of
the farmer at whose house she boarded.
He procured a stick and made an ef-
fective onslaught upon the flames.
Presently they were re-enforced by a
passerby, and after a time the fire was
"You best go home and rest a spell,"
counseled her landlord. "You look all
het up and tuckered out."
"It was pretty warm work," she ac-
knowledged, arranging her hair, which
the breeze and her exertions had tum-
bled about her face.
"Well, .1 tell you what, you just
saved them woods, all right. The own-
er ought to make you a nice present"
"Who is the owner?" she asked care-
"His name is Max Thornton. He's
a young city swelL I heard say."
She had Inserted the last hairpin
and now started for home with burned
face and blistered hands.
Meanwhile Johnny, returning from
the white house, heard a shot ring out
in the woods.
"I'll git him to come and help teach-
er," he thought as he scurried through
the cool woods after the man behind
"Say, the w4cds is pretty near on
fre. It's mos' crep' up on 'eml"
The man laughed good naturedly.
"Do you think I am in any danger?"
"The woods is! Teacher sent me fbr
help. She is beating it out with a
