A stranger in the moving throng,
To whom I said some careless word
About the weather and a song
Or singer he and I had heard.

His answer I have wholly lost,
In separate ways we left the place,
But I keep what I yalue most,
The memory of a pleasant face.
And I keep still within my heart
The thrill his touch awakened there,
As clasping hands we moved apart,
Each ignorant of the other's sphere.
We are not strange. rs, you and 1,
We touch but once each other's bands,
Look once into each other's eye,
And then drift off to other lands.
It is our heritage to grasp
Each friendly hand from far or near,
And in the quick, responsive clasp
To feel the common life we bear.

It is our duty, if we can, *
As life leads on from place to place,
To leave to every careworn man
The memory of a pleasant face.
-Arthur W. Eaton.,
There are many dirty roads in life;
but, if you use your judgment, you
will always be able to find a clean
crossing.-N asiy th.
Most people seem to think that
life is a great grab.bag into which
they should thrust their hands and
take out as much as possible, without

putting in anything. There could not
be a greater mistake, for we shall
find that we get out of life just what
we (put into it, says Success. If we
put in misspent hours, wasted oppor-
tunities, slipshod work, botched ma-
terial, we shall be paid in kind. No
matter what we give the world, it
pays us back in our ewn coin. If we
give it of our best-good, honest,
faithful work, however humble it may
be-we shall receive our just reward.
But if we try to grasp all the good
things and give nothing in return
we shall swallow some very bitter po-
tions. We shall find, when too late,
that we have squeezed our orange
dry, and that nothing but the rind is
How simple a problem is lite to
him who guides his work though
the dark hours by the lamp of con-
sciousness, to him who simply does
the next thing that ought to be done,

Talk hopefully to your children of
life and its possibilities; you have no
right to depress them because you
have suffered.

It appears that when the petition
for an election to remove the county
seat of Washington county and to
decide upon a location for the same
reached the Board of County Com-
missioners, it had a sufficient number
of names affixed to demand a hearing;
Int it transpired that an investiga-
tian revealed the faet that, of tlhe
names subscribed, more than fifty of
them were not of qualified voters,
and lacked about that many of time
number required; hence the matter
.was table]*
1Newf IShe Boy is informed that a
new petition will be circulated and a
determined effort be made to get the
names thereto of a sufficient number

of the qualified electors of the county
to insure the calling ot an election.
It is needless to say that, many
who signed the first petition did so
thoughtlessly, without taking into
consideration the consequences that
would follow a successful prayer, and
that many who signed it will decline
to sign a second one; and the Buoy is
fully convinced that the movement is
an uuwise one, and should be opposed
by everyone who has the best inter-
ests of the county at heart.
To begin with, an election will be
expensive-probably to the tune of
$750 to $1,000; again, while Vernon
may not be an ideal location for a
county seat, it is there, and we have
a very good courthouse and it is en-
tirely paid for.
It is urged that Chipley han guar-
anteed to contribute $5,000 toward
the building of a courthouse if that
place should be selected; but if voters
will stop to think, they will become
satisfied that this is but a drop in the
bucket towards building a court-
.house, jail and other structures re-
quired at a county seat, and that in
all probability, when all are complet-
ed. the expeanso will be found to reach
at least $20,000 or $25,000, and for
the extra amount above the $5,000,
the county must go in debt and the
taxpayers must foot the bill, and
while this $5,000 is promised, it is
not already in hand, and it is doubt-
ful if it, ever will be.
It is easy to see why Chipley
should exert every effort toward being
selected as the county seat, and noth-
ing would contribute to this end more
than to have half a dozen candidates
in the field to divide the vote, and,
Chipley, by outvoting any one of
them, would win the prize.

But, in the minds of the authors of
this plea. there are more weighty
reasons than any of these why this
question should not be brought to a
vote at the present time. Washing-
ton county is a tremendously large
county-larger in fact than some of
the states in the Union; to reach the
county seat, whereyei may be its lo-
cation, involves long journeys from
some of the remote portions and
heavy expenses for mileage of boards
of county and school commissioners
jurors and witnesses. Sooner or
later the county must be divided
and never was a more propitious time
than the present to make a move in
this direction, Let us get up a pe-
tition and circulate it thoroughly to
have tlie county divided at, say one
township north of the base line, and
to extend the line between Washing-
ton and Calhoun counties straight
south to the gulf, where by nature it
really belongs. Every taxpayer on
the Peninsula, in Calhoun county,
everyone south of the proposed line
in this county should, and nearly ev-
ery one would sign such a petition,
and those to the north of it, should
naturally be equally in favor of it,
while Calhoun county could not con-
sistently interpose any objection;
then let each of the counties so made
locate its capital where the majority
may decide.
Everyone interested in the welfare
of the county should decline to sign
a petition at the present time for the
removal of the present site; but if an
election should be ordered they
should vote NO with a big N,
against the proposition.
If, in the foregoing, any argument
bearing upon the situation has been
overlooked, or any -has been made
that is not borne out by facts, we
who are opposed to any interference
at the present time would be glad to
be corrected.

"If it had been anything else I
vouldu't have cared," sobbed Ethel,
Jurying her face deeper Into the
A tap at her studio door brought
ter to a sitting posture. and, wiping
,jer eyes with a bit of lace edged linen,
dhe called to the visitor to enter.
"Beg pardon--oh. Miss Benton," be-
gan the big, motherly looking woman,
"did you send for meT"
She was the Janitor's wife and lived
in the basement of the studio building.
Ethel suiffed and continued to dry her
"Yes," she said. "Some one has
stolen my nice m-muff." And she
burst into a fresh flood of tears.
"There-there now," comforted the
woman, patting Ethel's heaving shoul-
ders. "Dry your pretty eyes and tell
me about it."
"There's nothing t tell except that
it's stolen. I-I just went out this
morning for a walk and when I came
back it was gone."
"It was here when I cleared up the
room this morning," said the woman.
"It was big and brown and long
haired, wasn't it'?
Ethel nodded.
"Have you looked everywhere for
Ethel nodded agata. "Yes, every-
where. I-they could hve taken any-
thing else but-but that.
Mrs. Carter's eyes scanned the
room, an expresalon o distress and
surprise on her good matured face.
They had never had 4y trouble of
this sort in the buldln and she felt
personally responsible.
"I have the only bet except your
own, and"-
"Oh, Mrs. Carterr' Interrupted
Ethel hastily, "don't tir an instant
think that I blame youl I only sent
for you so you might investigate in
a quiet way."
"There's only one new tenant In the
building-a man on the next floor, but
be seems like a gentleman. I've not
had much talk with him, but I mind
his dog for him sometimes when he's
"I don't believe any one In the build-
Ing would take It, but-well, it is gone.
It was not the value of the muff, but"
-Ethel hesitated and a deeper color
flooded her face-"It was all I had left
that a--a very dear riend gave me."
Even dense Mrs. Carter noticed the
emphasis on the adjective and the
slight hesitation as to the fitness of the
word "friend."
"ril keep my eyes open, Miss Ben-
ton, and In the meantime don't spoil
your eyes crying."
"All right," replied Ethel faintly as
the door closed on the janitor's wife.
But she did cry I How vividly she re-
called the day Bert Cameron had given
her the muff. Hawkins, his old chum,
had sent the skin from Idaho, and the
muff had been made to match Bert's
gloves and capl They had been en-
gaged then only a few months and-
well, when they had broken their en-
gagement it was summer, and, in re-
turning his ring and the other things
he had given her, the muff, paMed In a
cedar chest for the. -'md- th, had
been forgotten. W .riesi had brought
tt out again It was too late, and she
had kept it Often when her pupils had
been hopelessly out of tune, when they
had seemed not to know one note from
another nor a piano from any other
plaything, she had oome home all ex-
hausted to bury her face In the shaggy
warm fur and regret many things
Now it was gone, like Its donor, from
her life.

Cameron opened the door of his room
with little enthusiasm. He did not
fancy this place much more than many
other abodes he had taken up In the
last year. He was sorry he had left
the home town, after all, for there at
least he had a home. And yet he could
not bear the place after she had gene.
"Hello, Fellow," he said to the frisky
fox terrier, who had gone into ecstasies
of delight on hearing his master's key
in the lock.:
"What's"- Cameron picked up a
brown muff from the sofa. He put his
hands int. it, and hie face paled. So
she had returned even that one last
remembrance of himI He had cherish-
ed the thought that perhaps she would
think of him when she used the muff,
Inasmuch as she had kept it. But
A flash of astonishment crossed his
face. Where was she? That she was
In the great city he bad known when
he came, but where? _He felt within the
muff's soft lining for a note, a word,
a clew of some sort. .brt. theit was. no

iign. Then be closed his eyes in the
depths of the shaggy brown fur. He
felt sentimental. a bit foolish, when he
did It, but who save Fellow would see
"Miss Benton." began Mrs. Carter,
entering Ethel's studio Just as that
young woman, trim in her brown walk-
ing suit, was leaving for a lesson, "I've
found your muff."
"What?" cried EtheL
"I was cleaning that new young
man's room, and there, on the coath,
was your muff staring me In the tace.
I-I wouldn't have believed my ow
eyes. He's such a nice young man."
"Where la it? What's his name?"
cried the girl in one breath.
"Mr. Cameron"- Mr. Carter stopped
sort Ethel ad. rrablbd thlWulmow-
knob, and her cheek had loatts pretty
"Cameron?" she echoed,
"Yes. He's on the floor above." Mrs.
Carter stared in blank astonishment.
"And he-he has the muff?" Ethel
asked, as if unable to believe it.
"Yes, he has It all right"
"Very well, Mrs. Carter," Ethel said
after a moment. "I will come and see
you about it later."
The woman closed the door and de-
"There's something mysterious about
It all," she muttered to herself as she
descended the stairs.
When she was halfway down she
turned back, but this time she contin-
ned to the floor above.
Opening the door of Cameron's room,
she held up her hands in horror at the
sight that met her gaze. There on the
floor, playing like a child with a rub-
ber ball, was Fellow and the muff.
"Ah-h, bad dog," she cried, but be-
fore she could catch him he had dashed
past her into the ball, muff in mouth.
Ethel, coming through the hall, en-
countered him.
"Oh, Fellow, Fellow!" she cried be-
tween laughter and tears of joy. "YOU
took it!" And she caught the mufg,
wet and ruffled, from the dog's teeth.
She was burying her face In it when.
a man rounded the curve of the stairs
"Ethel I"
"Oh!" was all that the young woman
said, while the man took her hands,
muff and all, and the dog howled for
his plaything.
"I-I thought it was stolen," said
Ethel after a time when Cameron had
seated himself on her couch and Fel-
low was snooping about the room in a
fashion which would Indicate that he
had been there before. In faet, bh a. -
often visited the rooms with Mrs. Car-
ter when she cleaned.

"And I thought you had returned It
to me because you-you hated me and
didn't want even a remembrance of
me about." The man held her hand
more closely.
"Oh, Bert, and I-oh, I don't know
anything but that I adore Fellow for
stealing It," she cried Impulslvely.
"And-don't you adore-don't you
love Fellow's master Just a little -r--
well, for possessing such an latelligent
"Perhapsr" Ethel blushed prettily for
the seventh time since the recovery of
the muff.
"And will you be part owner of such
a wise dog, dear'?

"Oh, good graciously" cried Bessie.
She had jumped up from her seat un-
der the great oak, her eyes large and
dark with terror. "This must be he
now coming up the avenue! And no
one at home but me!"
Involuntarily her swift glance meas-
ured the distance to the gabled frame
house, then her frightened look went
back to the man limping up the path
from the gate. No, she could not reach
the house before he was beside her.
And of all things she despised cow-
ardice. So she hastily picked up the
magazine she had dropped in her first
shock of alarm and gripped it .very
tightly to keep her hands from trem-
bling. He was near--quite near her
now. He stood still, and their eyes
She saw a muscular looking young
fellow, with wavy blond hair, a good,
square chin and dark blue eyes, direct
and intelligent of glance, He held his
handkerchief to a wound on his tem-
ple, and she noticed the square of
linen was crimson. His appearance
was singularly disheveled. His clothes
were muddy, as though he had waded
through creeks. His hat was battered.
And the halting way in which he drag-
ged his leg indicated Injury.
He saw a young and very pretty
girl dressed in a soft woolen gown of
crimson cashmere. Her eyes were
gray, but just now so dilated were the
pupils they appeared to be black. The
wind had ruffled her dusky hair about
her forehead. There was no color in
the piquant, frightened face.
"I beg your pardon!" the man said,
and took off his hat. "I fear I have
startled you. I've had quite an-an
experience and an accident Have you
any objection if I go into the house?
I should like a drink of water-and to
rest for a little while."
Bessie Hammersly. strove to speak,
but no words came to her lips. She re-
called what her uncle had told her a
few hours before when he had gone In-
toathe house f9r hl.iQAnlTerijuLateutd

his gray'horse and had drawn rein te
explain before e e joined the posse o
determined looking farmers and towns
people at the gate.
"Held up the bank at the county sea
all by himself and got away with a
cool thousand. This Isn't his first ex
plot. He's a nervy ruffan. The bank
er Is dangerously wounded -sha
through the shoulder. He thinks-lI
fact, knows-be hit the robber when he
fired by the blood that marked his es
cape. It isn't 4kely he'll have got fta
before we strike his trail. And wheI
we do"-
He bad nodded grimly there and gal.
loped off.
And now here was a travel stained
injured, grimy individual confronting
her and asking aid. I only the serv
ants al not g dniaeb spebialpenal
ilon to the annual fair'. i the neari
town! If only bar aant had not goes
to spend the morning with a beighbora
"I'm araid," the man said, with a
smile, surprised evidently at her sl-
'ence and her air of tense agitation,
"that you consider me too disreputable
in Individual to admit to your home"
He glanced down deprecatlngly at his
soiled and disordered attire. "If you
have objections," he said, with what
sounded like an Inflection of offense, "I
shall wait here If you will be good
enough to bring me the water."
He sank down on the seat. and as he
did so a groat burst from his Hps. She
saw drops of sweat start out around
his handsome mouth.
"Oh. I will!" she cried compassion-
Jtely. '*You are suffering. I am sorry.
Just wait a moment."
And pity was the sensation para-
mount in the mind of Bessie Ham-
mersly as she sped across the tawny
grass, looking like a flash of flame in
her vivid gown.
Supposing he were a bandit twenty
times over! He reminded her of Char-
lie-her beloved young brother, Bran-
dy. Some was always kept upstairo In
the medicine chest for emergencies.
So up the stairs she few, dashed a
quantity of the liquor into the glass
she held and, adding water at the kitch-
en sink, sped out again into the autumn
sunsh!ne and across the lawn.
"Here," she gasped, "take this--
qu;ck!" I
He was dea pale. H. e head, with
efes closed, rested against the brown
tree trunk. His handkerchief had fall-
.en to the ground, and she saw that
.the blood was trickling from a Jagged
eut across his temple.
Without the slightest shrinking o
hesitation she leaned down and held
the laeu to his lis.
"' dtr must drink "tfm at once" a
said, speaking loudly. "And then you
.may go into the house if you wish.
You can go up in the attic and lie
down. No one goes there." Her touch,
her voice, the strong odor of the liquor,
roused him. He opened his eyes, sat
erect and took the glass with a alight
bow of acknowledgment and a swift
"You are very good." He drank the
mixture gratefully. Almost at once
its effect was perceptible. The color
came back to his cheek. Hegroped for
his handkerchief. "I shall not intrude.
It Is nothing. I shall be all right pres-
But be spoke to the dancing leaves,
for Bessie had fled back to the house.
When she returned she carried a roll
of linen.
"You must let me bandage your head,"
she said. "Then, if. you think you
would be safer, you may go into the
"Safer!" he repeated blankly.
"Yes. Sit still, please." It took all
her tender memories of Charlie and the
persistent thought that if he were In
trouble she would wish even strangers
to be kind to him that made her force
inerseli, shrinking with repulsion the
while, to wind the white material over
the jagged cut. "There!" She put a
final pin and stepped back. "They will
be coming back this way, and I'm
afraid-I know-they will see you from
the road."
He rose and stood looking down on
her in bewilderment.
"Who will see me?" he asked. "Why

was not exactly pleased because she
would have liked the queen to think
they lived somewhere else. After say-

The Timidity of the'Shark.
The shark, like the elephant, is of a
timid disposition and is cautious and
wary in his approaches. All observers
are agreed that he is always attended
by two pilot fishes, who act the same
part as that wrongly assigned to the
jackal in reference to the lion-going
on ahead to examine any likely object
and returning to inform the shark
whether It is of an eatable nature. The
splashing of oars or even the arms and
legs of a swimmer will often deter the
shark from making an attack, and
there is every reason to believe that if
swimmers in tropical waters- would al-
ways carry with them three or four
hand grenades they would have little
occasion to fear interference by these
creatures. It is strange that so obvious
a precaution should be generally neg-
lected.-London Standard.

Historic Relic.
The Chesapeake, famous for her en-
connter with the British ship Shan-
non in the war of 1812, Is still in ex-
istenc. When she was captured by
the Britith she was taken to England
by her captor, Sir Philip Broke, and
some years later her timbers were
sold. The purchaser was a miller in
Wiskham,: and when he pulled down
his old mill he built a new one from
the4tlmbers of the Chesapeake. Many
of these timbers still have the marks
of the Shannon's grapeshot, and in
some places the shots are still to be
seen deeply Imbedded in the pitch pine.
If the builder who made this ship
knew that its timbers were being used
In a mill which Is making money for
a subject of Great Britain there is no
doubt that he would at least try.to rise
from his grave to right the wrong.

Lord Shaftesbury's father and mother
stopped at the inn, having their young-
er son, the future lord, with them. In
conversation the innkeeper spoke of
the genius of his boy in drawing and
wished them to test it by a picture of
their son. They assented, thinking to
gratify a father's pride, but not look-
ing for any evidence of superior talent.
The boy came in modestly,'with chalk
and paper, and in a few minutes had
drawn a picture of their son on which
the parents looked with wonder. They
recognized the genius and the promise
of future greatness and befriended the
young artist, giving him the help need-
ed to develop his wonderful gift

The word "prejudice" comes from
two Latin words, "pro" or "pre," be-
forehand, and "judico," I judge. There-
fore "prejudice" means the forming of
an opinion beforehand or before knowl-
edge. To form a opinion or declare a
judgment concernijug any subject with-
out or ignoring knowledge is "preju-
dce." An, opinion formed after a life-
long acquaintance and experience and
after thorough investigation and study
nay be erroneous, but cannot properly
be styled "prejudice." When the teach-
ing and experiences of the world are
d.isegarded, when the facts of history
and science are ignored or denied, the
conclusions or opinions thus arrived at
must not only be mistaken, but they
must be the result of prejudice.

Records of the ancient city of Gor-
geana, fotnde41 n 1640, better known
at the present time as York Harbor,
Me., contain many quaint and unusual
stores of the early life of the town.
At the entrance to York harbor a
bold promontory known as Stage neck
extends some distance into the sea,
from which formerly in stormy w eath-
er a temporary light in the form of a
lantern hosted upon an upright pole
was displayed as a warning to marl.
One dark winter night a sloop was
wrecked on these rocks. A survivor on
being questioned about the catastrophe
"The vwel struck, turned over on
her side, and the skipper and another
barrel of whtiky rolled overboard."
The local coroner was summoned,
and this somewhat startling verdict
was returned:
"We find that the deceased fell from
the masthead and was killed. He
rolled overboard and was drowned. He
floated ashore and froze to death, and
the rate eat him up allvel"-Harper's
Leloter Mortality Hiah.
A lobster lays thousands of eggs,

with her for nearly a year and with
admirable instinct guards them as she
does her own life. When the young
are set free her duty is done, for they
must then shift for themselves. Though

with accommodation for twenty-two
passengers Inside, and was drawn by
three handsome bays, driven by a
smart coachman In livery, and its con-
ductor was gay in a blue cloth uniform,
like a midshipman. This conductor, by
the way, was the son of a naval cap-

was quite common for the poke bonnet-
ed young ladies from Paddington to
ride as far as the city and back with
the object of Improving their French

Sallie Marshall went to Red Bank
for her vacation- almost entirely be-
cause Frank Ewing was there. To
her friends in the offices of the Ameri-
can Opera Chair company she said that
she felt the quiet of the place to be
what she most needed. In point of
fact, however, what she most needed
was the love of the young bookkeeper
who had dropped his pen a week be-
fore with the avowed intention of rus-
ticating at Red Bank.
The ordinary, sensible woman of thir-
ty-two, which was the exact age of
Miss Marshall, probably would not
have sympathized with her much con-
eerning this requirement. Ewing was
just twenty-eight, and his "gray mat-
ter" was not gray because of maturity
or overexertion. He was exceedingly
good looking, exceedingly tall and
broad and debonair, and these 'virtues
had appealed at once to little Miss
Marshall, whose eyes were accustomed
to grayness of mind and of other
Ewing liked Miss Marshall, too, in a
patronizing sort of fashion, his regard
having been deepened considerably by
the discovery that she was mistress
of "double entry" and not at all averse
to double labor. His affection never
melted into words, and it was suffi-
ciently adjustable to permit of being
put quite out of the way when its pos-
sessor met so fluffy and alluring a per-
son as Nellie Carruth.
"Frank Ewing's gone with your girl
again," Miss Marshall heard an idler
remark banteringly to another as she
climbed th steps of the Globe hotel.
She stopped to fumble a handkerchief
out of her bag.
"Who? Nellie Carruth?" inquired the
youth addressed. "Looks as if Lwas
cut out, doesn't it?"
That he was not the only individual
"cut out" Miss Mashall learned im-
mediately upon the return of the pair.
Fluttering about the piazza, she dis-
cerned them at the end of the street,
the bookkeeper hanging on the words
of his companion as no amount of mere
appreciation of wisdom ever made man
hang on the words of woman. Ew-
ing was greatly embarrassed, too, when
he saw Miss Marshall, although she
tried to seem uninterested alike in his
presence and in his attention to the
blue rocked girl to whom he present-
ed her.
Ewing was acting quite within his
rights, she told herself later, obeying
the impulse that bade her justify him
even to herself. He had made no pact
with her, at least no verbal pact, and
she knew that few men recognized the
validity of unspoken contracts. Why
should a fine, strong fellow whose life
was before him be tied to a neutral
tinted woman who already realized
that her future was to be only her past
stripped of it illusions? If Frank
lwig wanted to marry Nellie Carruth
it wasn't any of her business.
Nevertheless while presenting an im-
perturbable front to that part of the
world located at Red Bank she suffered
keenly the next few days. Miss Oar-
ruth and her widowed mother occupied
a cottage near the river, and between
walking, riding and boating she and
her new admirer were together almost
constantly. Ewing glanced at Miss
Marshall once or twice, assured him-
self that she didn't care and was glad
that he had not committed himself.
Ewing was not a bad sort of a man; he
was just a man.
This was the state of affairs when a
fire at the Carruth cottage upset Red
Bank-and' permitted to the bookkeeper
a display of courage which seemed to
write "finis" to his romance. The blaze
broke out at dead of night and gained
such headway in the front part of the
dwelling that there appeared scant
probability that the two inmates could
be rescued. Red Bank's volunteer fire
brigade propped its ladders against the
veranda before the bedroom windows,
but very wisely refused to mount them
through'the blast furnace of the blas-
ing porch. Ewing went up one of them
like a toy monkey on a stick and car-
ried both women to places of safety.
Miss Marshall, who thought it risky

It was with some misgivings that
W'entworth took the third floor of Mrs.
Manice's house. Had she not told
him that she was almost an invalid?
And when the mistress of a house is
an invalid! He had half a mind to go
back and tell her that he had recon-
sidered; that he feared, after all, that
the rooms wouldn't do. He slackened
his pace, turned, then went on. -Per-
haps things would be 'alt right, but a
fellow did so hate household discom-
On the second morning after his ar-
rival, when he sat like a bewildered
monarch among a piled up, shapeless
mass of books, pictures, tables and
chair--wondering' why under heaven
he had ever acquired them-there came
a knock at his door. At the moment
he was perched upon a stepladder,
smoking a short pipe and taking a rest
before he fatigued himself by begin-
ning to-arrange things.
"Come in!" he roared, without mov-
ing, expecting to see a servant. Then,
at. a slight hesitation on the part of
thie persohb-a hesitation thit he felt
rather than saw-he turned toward the
"Oh! Ah! I beg your pardon" he
apologized with alacrity, laying down
his pipe and jumping from his perch.
"You see Pm a bit floored. I'm"-
He paused rather helplessly, waiting
for his caller to explain herself, though
he felt vaguely that she was.welcome,
thought she had dropped from the
clouds, so frank was her gaze, so fas-
cinating the way the thick hair rippled
away from the low, broad forehead, so
utterly womanly her face.
"Mamma sent me," she explained.
"I'm Miss Manice, and she thought
perhaps the maid and I might be able
to help you out"
She looked about the room inquiring-
ly; then, as her eyes came back to the
new lodger's blank, helpless face, she
caught her lower lip between her teeth,
thus holding back the smile that strug-
gled to escape.
"H-1 vyou ever moved?" he asked
ruefully, surveying his shelter skelter
possessions with fresh aversion, and
at the question she laughed but a
laugh so girlish and infectious that
Wentworth laughed, too, catching for
a moment the point of view from
which his dilemma was funny.
'"What the world needs," he went on
plaintively, "is automatic, self arrang-
ing furniture-furniture that, placed in
the room, will adjust itself and save
its owner all trouble."
"That's what we will have when the
millennium comes," answered Miss
Manice gayly, "but meanwhile, if you
really loathe the task of arranging
your things and will leave it to me"--
She paused questioningly, 'while
Wentworth gazed at her very much as
if she were the straw and he the
drowning man. Again her face dim-
"You wouldn't-not really?" doubt-
ed he, with the shamefaced air of a
person who has taken a palpable Jest
in earnest.
"rd just love It-that is, if you think
I can arrange the room to suit you.
You might give me a general idea of
how you like things, and"--
Wentworth cut her short.
"If you can give it something of the
look of that little drawing room of
yours," he said warmly, "I shall be
more than satisfied. The fact is, you
have saved my life," he finished can-
"Walt until you see the rooms," she
cautioned as they parted, he to go to

mastering herself, grasped the victim's
hand firmly. "I didn't realize," she
said, "how much you had dune Tor me."
Manifestly Milss Marshall had been
unjust in considering her a mere doll.
One evening soon after, however,
when she was sitting at .her window,
looking into the mist .of her life, she
was given reason toreurrect her first
opinion. Ewing and Miss Carruth were
seated below, and Ewing was propos-
ing marriage. The woman upstairs
knew that she ought not to listen, but
her breath wras quivering in her throat,
and she could not move away to save
her soul.
"Don't!" Miss Carruth was urging
when her voice first became audible.
"Don't, Franki Please don't!"
"But why?" he persisted. "I love
you. Until this moment I was sure
that you loved me."
"I dld cried the girl. "Oh, I did un-
til- You mustn't ever ask me to mar-
ry you!"
"Why?" repeated Ewing. The repeti-
tion was determined. "I think I have
earned the right to a reason."
"That is the reason"
"What?" The word was spoken
sharply, like a military command.
Miss Carruth quailed.
"What-what happened when you
- ~eaniA ght?. Oh, I know I'm hor-
ridl I know I'll be ashamed all the rest
of my life. But-your cheekl 1
couldn't bear to look at that sear."
"Oh!" said Ewing.
"If It hadn't been for me you
wouldn't have been burned," Miss Car-
ruth went on, sobbing almost hysteric-
ally. "I realize that. I'm sorry; indeed
I'm sorry! Won't you say you forgive
"Yes," said Ewing. "It's not your
fault I've just been a fool. I see it
now. I'm going away tomorrow."'
"And you won't think too harshly of
Ewing rose, and Miss Marshall
hoard him push back his chair. "I'll
try not to think of you at all," *he an-
swered. "I'll try to remember a little
woman who has never forgotten me.
Her love was too fine for me to com-
prehend at first, but somehow I seem
to understand it now."
Then two sounds broke the stillness
of the night. Frank Ewing had gone
into the hotel, slamming the door after
him, and Sallie Marshall, fainting for
the first time in her life, had fallen to
the floor.

beside the fireplace Wentworth voice
the highest praise to be spoken of wo-
"Bless her heart!" he said softly.
"She ought to be a bachelor's wife"
During the three months that fol-
lowed this conviction grew more and
more fervent. His admiration for the
skill with which Ethel Manice (at oth-
er times a merry, companionable girl)
ran the household, reducing friction to
the minimum, making life a continual
joy, grew Into a sort of religion to him.
And it was something of this sort
that he said to her one night, scarce
knowing that he was saying it and
adding to it a humble request that
she marry him.
She looked at him oddly for a mo-
ment. Then she laid her hand upon his
arm and said half kindly, half mock-
"What you want is a housekeeper,
Mr. Wentworth, not a wife." Then, a
little more earnestly, "Please let us-
not remember." And Wentworth, feel-
ing more discomfited than he cared to
admit to himself, did his best to obey
After this life flowed smoothly on for
another six months, the ripples closing
over the night when Wentworth was
rejected and leaving no sign.
It seemed sometimes as if his latch-
key admitted him to another world
where all was order, simple beauty
and good will, where every hour made
him stronger and better. Little by lit-
tle he had become a part of the small
family, often making a third in their
cozy drawing room-sometimes talking,
sometimes reading and again scolding
or advising Ethel with the freedom of a
big brother.
His appreciation of the delightful
hominess and ease led him into his
second blunder. It was a blustering
night in November. On her couch
Mrs. 'Manice, who had been less well
than usual, lay sleeping, while Ethel,
who had been playing Schubert with
dreamy unconsciousness, wandered off
into some improvisations of her own.
Presently Wentworth laid down the
book that he was reading with an al-
most suffocating sense of the dearness
of it all. Then suddenly Ethel stopped
playing and rose from the piano. The
action seemed significant. Wentworth
was jarred by the thought that just as
abruptly might the slender thread by
which he held this utterly delightful
home be snapped. Mrs. Manice might
grow worse; Ethel might-
He gave sharp sigh. He would not
suffer the thought, and again from the
fullness of his heart he spoke.
"Ethel," he pleaded, "Is it so impos-
sible? I can't tell you what all this is
to me. How could I ever get along
without you?"
But again he was stopped by that
pdd, impenetrable glance. Again with
a smile, half kind, half mocking, she
looked up at him and answered, "You
want a companion, not a wife." Again
they gravely agreed not to remember.
And soon after the illness of a mar-
ried sister called her away. The weeks
came and went, and her stay prolonged
itself dismally, it seemed to Went-
worth, though under Mrs. Manice's di-
rection things went on as smoothly as
usual. Apparently everything was the
same, and yet he smarted under an in-
tolerable sense of difference. All the
creature comforts were there and pleas-
ant companionship, yet the soul of
things had fled. And then suddenly he
understood, and the knowledge made
him strong and humble.
It was on the evening of Ethel's re-
turn that he found himself alone with
her for a few moments.
"Dear little girl," he'said brokenly,
"I'm not asking you to marry me. I'm
not mad enough to do that again. But
I want to tell you this-that I love you
_with my whole heart; that I shall al-
ways love you; that I would rather
have loved you in vain than"-
Two slender arms were about his
neck, and a soft voice was saying:
"At last, you darling, I really believe
that you want a wife."

In a recent police court squabble over
a clock one man testified that he could
identify the timepiece in question by
the tick. This statement was received
with derision by most of the courtroom
attaches, the magistrate included, but
later a watchmaker to whose attention
it had been called declared that the
scoffers laughed before they knew
what they were laughing at.
"Of course you can tell a clock by
its tick," he said. "I don't mean that
every clock has an individual tick that
can be recognized by its friends, but
many of them have, and a parson who
has owned a certain clock for a long
while and has studied its style and
mannerisms can, if he has a good ear,
detect that particular tick among a
hundred. Many clocks that are appar-
ently made on the same plan develop
peculiarities in their running gear.
Some canter along at an even pace,
others go by jerks and spurts. Some
are stately and solemn, others frisky
and gay. The ticking of clocks varies,
too, in rhythm, pitch and dynamics.
With all these differences in tone is it
any wonder that a man who has meas-
ured his life by one clock for several
years can swear even in court to Its
particular tick?"-New York Post.

When Wentworth opened the door
o)f his sitting room that evening quick
approval flashed into his eyes. All the

together so incongruously in the morn-

The Wishbone,
The wishbone in birds is called by
scientists furcula and is in reality the
union of what are in man the two sepa-
rate collar bones. These in the birds re-
ceive the brunt of the strokes of the
wing that turn the creature in its
fliRht. Few realize the strength of
stroke of the bird's wing. -It is said
that a swan has been known to break-
a man's leg by a blow of its wing, and
in like manner the wing beatings of the
larger bids are dangerous if they,
strike the head or face. If, therefore, a
large bird is in the-habit of making
sudden turns to right or left in its
flight it must be fitted with a wishbone
competent to withstand the great
strain of the wing stroke on one side,
with no special action on the other side.
.For this reason we find in the eagle
and like birds of quickly turning flight
a furcula that is a perfect Roman arch,
widely at variance' with the Gothic
arch, which is the shape of the wish-
bone of our common fowls. The eagle's
furcula is a solid rounded arch, every-
where equally strong and not develop-
ing those points of weakness that make
our sport of breaking the wishbone

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, almostq_
yond trellef, Indicating that only' little
nourishment Is necessary to keep them
alive. Tn 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 etiough 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
