The following letter from our es-

S.. Stiles, who has been ending so
much to enhance the reputation of
St. Andrew as a resort where the
visitor could be assured of the best
possible entertainment, explains it-
CHICAGO, 7-21-1905.
Editor Buoy: Results! Who said
"results?" I am still looking for
them; and lo, and behold, how scarce
they are. By "reaulti" I mean results
from the great and noble effort of the
subscriber in his endeavor to have
the people of St. Andrew place in
the office of "Entertainer of the Ten-
derfoot" a man of their choice.
iThe lack of interest shown by
them in selecting such a party is
proof to me, conclusive, that the pres-
ent incumbent, Capt, Wills has, and
i tilling the chair in a satisfactory
manner, aud that they do not propose
to allow any "Lendlerfoot" tc step in
aund 1y lhok or crook depose their
"Groat and Only Entertainer."'

The citizens of St. Andrew took
no chances, for fear that the Captain
would he deposed. I received a very
interesting letter from Brooklyn, N,
Y., in which the correspondent cast
his vote for the writer hereof. I also
received a penci' sketch from South
IIaven, Michigan, which I also en-
close. This sketch was a representa-
tion or" the Captain, but the artist did
not sign his naime. The above TWO
were the only responses received. 8t.
Antiew cast a solid vote for the Cap-
tain; as indicated by her silence.
Now, rro. Emnons, 1 thank you
for the courtesy shown me in my en-
deavors to create a little nonsense,
anld can 1 at any time reciprocate, I
shall be a willing servant.
As my subscription has about ex-
pihed, 1 enclose a dollar for renewal.
Kinidly remember me to enquiring
friends and I trust that sometime in
the future I may see you all again.
I might add that our friend, Mr.
J. D. Coffman entertained this branch
of thlio St. Andrew colony, at his res-
idence, by giving a birthday party in
honor of his 'teenth" birthday,
July 1st. Plenty of good things to
eat aui a very. pleasant social time,
made us all wish that he might have
many mnte birthdays and each time
give a party, honoring us with an in-

SFcLur Day

By Lowell Otus Reese A

Cop right, lft', by Lowell Otu Roese V

Our acquaintance began in a manner
most unique.
High up on the canyon wall was a
rock, shaded by a live oak. For a
ynonth it had been my custom to sit
upon this rock through thel warmcsi
part of the ldy sketching. I had es-
tablished possea'sion by right of pre-
So it came in the nature of a shock
wlien I climbed to my usual vantage
point and found ensconced in my fa
vorite position on my reck a giri.
I was in,'ignaut, also disa,-pointed.
I felt much as Izaakl Walton might
have felt when he found an interloper
fishing his favorite pool. This was a
most !prw-s ntnous ycung person.

She half turned and made a slight
"The view is som'th!ng tremendous
from b"re," I observed further.
"Very," she agreed.
"I comti here every day," I panted as
I sat down conventionally near. "I
have done so for a mouth."
"Oh, le'rll.ap. you would rather I"-
"By no lmeauus'" I exclaimed. "The
view is much better"--
SLe Croe nie; then she laughb'l. We

That was the first day.

It was three days after.
"Why didn't you wait for me?" I
asked as I climbed over th'e rock and
threw myself down beside her.
She opened her brown eyes wide in a
wonderful assumption of surprise.
"Iow did I know you were coming?'
she asked.
I was amazed at the nerve of her. As
though I could have kept away! As
though thb combined police forces of
two continents could have kept me
away! This girl must be disciplined.
"Of course you know," I said confi-
She looked at me, and I felt my heart
turn to water. Still I persisted, where
t wise man would have turned the con-
r-ersatlon swiftly to the weather or the
view. "You knew I'd been coming ev-
-.;-y day for a month. You knew I usu-
ally came up about this time. You
knew-then why didn't you allow me
to accompany you"--
She rose. "I'm not coming any more,"
-he said.
I sprang to my feet in fright. "Don't!"
I pleaded. "I want you to stay! I"-
She kept her face averted, though I
wouldd see that her cheeks were hot and
'luahed. "Goodby," she said, and was,

The sun suddenly turned to ink.
Where a moment before had been a
bright scene spreading away below me
.,as a howling wilderness, and I was
empted to jump off the rock and butt
.ay empty head against the river bed
:00 feet below. I longed to be a boy
'gain that I might go down and fight
he first kid I ran across.
This was the second day.
The next Saturday night there was a
net d;an:ce in the assembly room of

his famous resort between the high
vails of thie Matili!a canyon. I saw my
:tince to redeem myself. I would
:an.c wij h her and make my peace
\-hile s:'e was so close she would be
-s:n'peiletd to listen, for all the week she
ad seemed unaware of my existence;
It was an informal affair-a country
rlnce, sans cnrds and ceremony. I ap-
pro.nched tbe group where Miss Win-
;ton -was clh:ttlug brightly with a golf
-tockng Enig!shman and a Boston
lagnate. Miss W!nston saw me com-
!ng--I know she did. She looked
tbrongh and beyond---far beyond me. I
telt like a pernmhulating piece of thin
-asr8s which a breath of hers might
I stopped suddenly. Of course that
was It! We had not been properly
"presented." What a chump I was. I
sought diligently for Bobby Jeltnski,
who knew everybody. I didn't find him.
The band struck up, and I saw her go
gilding away with the Englishman-
his golf stockings flashing among the
dancers like two variegated comets
Running amuck along the heavens of a
bright night.
And this was my luck all through
the evening. Try as I would, I got.no

elderly, careworn man who is known
to his neighbors by the mysterious title
of "the beggars' tailor." The "beggars'
outfitter" would be a more appropriate
sobriquet, for the elderly man's trade
has nothing to do with the making of
clothes. He equips and fits out profes-
sional mendicants for the practice of
their trade.
"A mendicant who has not mastered
the tricks of the trade," began the
beggars' tailor, "has no more chance-
of making money than has a pugilist
who has not learned to box. He must
get an outfit For a woman a small
child is the most essential detail. But
six beggar women out of eight have no
children of their own of the right age.
I supply them.
"But that's only a small part of my
business. I'll guarantee to make the
healthiest looking man In England re-
semble an anaemic cripple In ten min-
utes. Only a man who can work that
transformation has a right to call him-
self a beggars', tailor.
"The public likes horrors. Do you see
those?" The beggars' tailor took from
his breast pocket a large pill box and
removed the lid. Inside were about a
score of wafers of different sizes, shiny
with some adhesive on one side, and
red, protuberant and nasty looking on
the other.

her mother, who was struggling with
a Mexican mantilla. I gathered that It
was a fine night and tJiit she had en-
joyed her dance imme'ely, and, yes,
California moonlight was far superior
to anything she had ever seen, and then
hbe was gone, with to'. Englishman
,)ompously escorting her.
"What'.s the matter 'with you any-
a'ay?" demanded BohbbS .Telinski, who
at the eleventh hour had presented
"HB',bby," I said savuely, "will you
ilndly go to blazes a' ew times and
itay there?'" .
And this was the thI.ay.

ind c'fnie o nat rurally those first three
lays upon the rock ferned. viewed In
ihe light of the present situation, as
.t thing I must have dreamed about,
but never could have been.
And still the Englishman persisted.
I had come down from the rock and
was wandering uimlesaly among- the
iive oaks on the- oppoalte slde. of the
canyon when, happening to glance
,cross, I saw the flutter of a skirt on

the trail leading up to the rock. I drew
out my field glasses and trained them
on the figure ascending the familiar
trail. It was she! I watched her climb-
Itg with furtive dowuward glances.
The mystery was solved at last. Reg-
ularly all these unhappy days I had
been missing her. She m4st have been
going up there all these days, waiting
always for me to come down.
Blind rage filled my heart. I would
go up there and face her with her
guilt! I would reproach her and make
her see the enormity of ier vffensel
All this time I was plunging across
the canyon and up the tralL I would
9how her Just bow far she could go In
breaking a loving heart. I would-
Then as I found I was nearly half
way up the trail I lost my nerve and
decided to wait and meet her casually
as she came down. I wta tird ay-
way. 1 sat down in the iaflow of a
great rock which projected from the
hillside. I lit my pipe and wondered
why minutes didn't pan usaoe swiftly.
Certainly she had been te a ges I
put my pipe away. And ies-
There she stood In the trail, looking
at me with a gleam In he eyes .which
confused me, for-I didn't know what
It meant. I had caught from time
to time all long the wa t tbribntla;ou
I had traveled for over a Ronth.
"Why didn't you coreo up, Mr.
Blnke?" she Inquired "Ihe view was
c(xcellent today."
Was she mocking me? ,I started to
say something when froni above came
a terrific roar, and glanceng up I saw
a huge stone, loosened by some care-
less climber no doubt, plkmn g down
the slope. Miss Winston saw It com-
ing and gave a stifled cry, which was
smothered against my breast, for I had
caught her from the trail and flung
her behind the ledge, jamming her
fiercely against the ground as the fly-
ing monster roared over our heads and
down the canyon side, crashing trees
and stones as It went, till a few sec-
onds later it struck the bottom of the
abyss with a long, thunderous crash
that echoed up and down the river like
a mighty explosion. Then all was still.
I turned to the figure In my arms.
She was occupying exactly the same
position as when I flung her behind the
ledge, with her head in the hollow of
my arm.
"Are you hurt?" I asked anxiously.
She shook her head ever so slightly and
kept her face hidden against my coat.
My heart began to beat with a tumult
of hope. "Look at me!" I commanded.
She raised her face, but her eyes
were averted. She peered over my
shoulder at the depths below. "Is-Is it
coming back, I wonder"- she began,
and the words were stifled, for my soul
was suddenly ilhumined with the sure-
ty of my blessed fortune, and I kissed
the red lips, wondering mightily how-
ever I had done without them for so
And that was the fourth day.

- In the absorbing interest of the flow-
ers they were fashioning the subject
was dropped, but the thought wave
then started reached Elizabeth Ware
herself later on.
It was a wonderful day, full of mel-
low, mature, indescribable charm.
"Summer grows wise," Elizabeth
thought to herself, "no longer dazzling
and shriveling, but flooding the world
with tender light, veiling its splendors
in mists."
The strong, white, ungloved hands
twirled the parasol thoughtfully while
their owner drew in a deep breath.
There was something in the day that
stirred memories, brought back half
forgotten flirtations, filled her thoughts
with a vagao, beautiful regret-the loes
of something she had never known.
Somewhere about a locust shrilled
Its warning of the frosts to come.
Miss Ware's eyes grew dreamy, pen-
sive with that questioning of the fu-
ture which will disturb the mind of the
unmated woman until the last fence is
Had she perchance made a mistake?
She thought of ler school friends wrap-
ped in contentment-and flesh-who no
longer seemed contemporaries. They
had secured their matrimonIal.priPea-

purpose. With something of his old
impetuosity he reasoned that here was
a matter that had been deferred long
If his instinct told him so much at
that first meeting he was doubly sure
of it at the end of the following month.
He seemed now to himself to have re-
turned home for the express purpose
of seeing Elizabeth. Her society was
like long drafts of cool water from
some boyhood's well. He hadn't
thought much about the water at the
time. One never does. He had sup-
posed that all water was cool, clear and
refreshing. He knew better now.
There was but one uech well-bt one
"It isn't decent for a woman of your
age to be husbandless," was hisa orn-
ful way of beginntng the attack.
"Oh, I don't know was that lady's
easy rejotder. "We spinsters have
our uses. Think how we serve to point
morals. Why, I've no doubt that I my-
self have been the object lesson that

thing from celibacy. I can just Imag-
ine a mother saying, 'You'd better not

face for a Inoment and then scowled

sores. It doesn't sound nice. but you
don't want niceness In this busluess.

"Sturdy hbggrs up from the country
always pose on the verge of starvation.
If It weren't for me their fat faces
would belie them. But, as every stage
dresser knows, a few artificial lines
aud a judicious use of shadows will
make a face like Falstaff's emaciated
.nd lean. Beggars seldom wash, and
that's lucky for themselves. Otherwise
they'd be put to fresh expense every

I should tLhnk so. If you ever see a
rone legged beggar wearing a long coat.
ten to one he's a 'crock.' With a little
p:nctice a sound limbed man can blnd
up his leg till it's almost parallel with
his thigh bone. He comes to me for
an artiiclial ltg, which he fixes to hi-&
kneecap. The long coat enables him
to carry off the fraud. A medal on his
chest, a whine about Tel-el-Kebir or
Colenso, and the trick's done. For
money making no pose can beat the
'soldier broke in our wars.'
"Half the blind and one legged beg-
gars can see as well as you or I. I can
fit a blind man with everything from a
dog and eye shade to Braille book in
raised up characters., Dogs, of course,
cost money, as they have to be special-
ly trained. As a rule, the swindling
'blind man"hasn't got a dog. It's not
necessary and a great expense, where-
as a real blind man, if he hasn't got a
child, must have one.
"Many sham cripples and 'blind'
men are ex-criminals. A man who's
been 'lagged' and done a long term of
penal and doesn't like it fights shy of
committing a second crime. But he
says he can't get work as long as he's
on ticket As a rule, he makes a very
successful beggar, for nothing sharp-
ens a man'sw wits like jail."-Lbndon
Letter in Los Angeles Times.

The barbario red of the parasol which
pheb preentl3y ynturled when with a
sort of aluJess reluctance sbe had
passed down the steps and out Into the
September sunshine formed a vivid
background for the unmall, well set
head and a face which was at once hu-
morous and quiLlcal, as if the pageant
of lit9 had raised in her an eternal
question and an accompanying smile.
At the distance of a half block the
trim figure in its severe white pique
seemed all girl. A closer approach,
however, showed In the wavy dark
hair isolated silver threads-those out-
riders of time which come to lay low
the loveliest.
And, indeed, only a few days before
two placid matrons who had cast off
their girlish slimness as a snake does
its skin and achieved in its place so-
lidity and double chins might have
been heard discussing her case.
"Strange that Elizabeth Ware doesn't
marry!" observed one, as with eyes
bent upon her embroidery hoop she

yes, and sit down 'oy thi roadilde of
life, with no desire to fare further!
So far as she knew all were mildly
happy. But beside them she felt ridlc-
ulously young and joyous. A smile
touched her lips as she reflected that
It was with Harold, the fourteen-year-
old, that she preferred to walk and
talk, rather than with Harold's plump
and settled mamma.
Thbn she reviewed the thirty-five
year.s that stretched behind 'her, flam-
Ing like the tail of a comet, with varl
oty, with pleasant wanderings, with an
ever lchangug' group of men friend
who Lhd imIdod piquancy and deep
knowledge to her experience. Exchange
that long, beautiful experience, that
brilliant after glow of youth which had
kept her radiant and alert, for the calm
huppliiest- of per married friends?
Never I
Just as she reached this energetic
iingative the approaching figure of a
man held her Idle gaze. As he came
nearer a smile of pleased recognition
lightedd her face. She could scarcely be-
Ileve her eyes-Fergus Blynn, lined
and his meaning deepened by his ten
years of absence, but still undeniably
Before the gladness of the surprise
died out of her eyes he had seen her
and they were wringing each other's
hands In smiling delight.
"The same old Elizabeth," he said
warmly and yet with a little wonder
in his voice, which made her feel like
an anomaly. "You used to be about
my age; but, great Scott, you, might
almost pass for my daughter nowl
How do you manage it, and who's the
happy Iman?"
He was walking beside her, and Eliz-
abeth turned her face to him inquiring-
ly. Then It dawned upon her, and she
voiced a rather superior "Ohr" before
she proceeded to explain that her life
partner tarried unaccountably. Blynn
eyed her shrewdly.
"You seem to pass the waiting with a
good deal of satisfaction to yourself,"
he laughed-"that la, If one may judge
from appearances."
"You are married, of course?" she
questioned after she bad assured him
that one might. He shook his head
with blithe gayety.
"Yet I suppose wo are the ones out
1t all that old set who would have
e-en picked out aa likely to. make ear-
ly marriages," he went on. "How un-
der the sun do you account for It?"
"It's one of the things that can only
be accounted for on the theory that we
are both wise beyond our time," was
the mock grave answer. Then In a
teasing tone she continued: "My, but
you're golug to ae a love'l:,' tltnq

fond r.ar,,ir.' will sny. 'He and I used
to gRr to school together.' 'Oh, papa, he
must be an awful old manl' That's
what you're going through again and
again. I've been through It until I
wish the word 'aunt' were blotted out
of the language."
On and on they walked, talking with
undiminished interest As he remark-
ed in reply to her suggestion that it
was time she turned toward home,
the more they talked, the more they
had to say.
Never had there been the slightest
sentiment between them, though they
had been good friends until circum-
stances had sent Blynn to a distant
land on a business enterprise. He re-
cailed her as the best of comrades-a
girl with no nonsense about her. But
ho could not remember that in the
exuberant days of his youth, when he
had made love In turn to most of the
girls of their set, he had ever included
her. As he watched her now from the
corner of his eye, losing no whit of her
mature grace, he wondered by.. what
charm she had been held immune.
Up to the moment of their accidental
meeting if he had thought of her' at
all his mind had only brushed her
identity along with the group of old
friends, all of whom it would be a gen-
tle, half sad pleasure to see again, if
only to fix a standard by which to
measure how far he had gone, for it is
only thus by comparing ourselves with
the friends with whom we were once
abreast that we can gauge our progress
or estimate our failures.
Yet now he had a curious sensation
of having stumbled upon something
that he had craved--something the lack
of which had made him restless and
ill at ease, and as the conviction over-
spread his mind tn all its amazing cer-
tainty his manner grew abstracted,
Then he became alert with a sudden

nonton'* Crooked streets. .
Boston han hnd to stand much joking
on the subject of Its crooked streets.
Every one has heard of the stranger
who, lost In the tortuous ways, des-
perately caught the coat tails of the
man in front of him and got along
very well until an abrupt turn revealed
the fact that it was his own coat tails
to which he was clinging. Early last
century a Frenchman gave ah Interpre-
tation of the deviousness of the high-
ways which is both pleasant and pa-
triotic. It is found In a book called "A
Trip to Boston," by E. 0. Wines.
"I have passed a delightful morning
In Boston," writes the author. "We
went to Charlestown In an omnibus,
passing through a considerable portion
of the city. The irregularity of the
streets is amazing. It is a common
saying that Boston was laid out by
cows, and I can well believe it. The
labyrinth of Crete never equaled It. I
do not say the irregularity Is disagree-
able; on the contrary, the effect Is
pleasing. To a stranger It is a per-
petual surprise."
Many years ago the Marqula of
Chatelot visited Boston.
"Marquis," said an apologetic citizen,
"you will find Boston streets very
crooked. They turn and twist In ev-
ery direction."

Rats have never found favor as a del-

relished as an article of diet. The ne-
'gro slaves of Jamaica used to regard
them as a dainty, their masters not
prorvdfng them with any other meat.
Their method of cooking the toothsome
rodents was to impale each onen a
long wooden skewer after cleaning the
animal and cutting off the tail, turning

The chief breeding ground for cana-

alns, but of late years only the finest
fingerss are reared In that district. The
trade was transferred to Elchsfelde,
'n the province of Hanover, where poor
w'envera br(d the cheaper sort. The
most important market forj these gold-
en birds is the United States, which
takes quite 100,000 birds a year. Great
Britain cones next,, with some 50,000,
and is followed by Brazil, Chile and
the Argentine Republic.
The principal dealers have large fac-
tories which can turn out material for
1,0(0) bird cages daily. The peasants
take this away to their homes and
thelre'make up the cages. Attendants,
who each have charge of 1,000 birds in
separate cages, take canaries across
the Atlantic and on their return voy-
age bring back Mexican and Cuban
parrots for the Iuropean markets.
About 2.10,000 canaries are bred ev-

What to Do.
SThere is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr., Kilmer's Swamp-
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wjsh 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,
win, or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessiy of-brrf'g compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the n:ght. The mild and the extra-
ordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its won-
dtrful cures of the most distressing cases.

ta the Law Among Many Tribes o
linr Centr-al Africa.
Menl In Africa. and especially in east
central Afri-a. believe that their wolp-
en are thbrc- iuferlors, and many cen-
turies ago, sHys the Chicago Trib- f
une, they made a law that has worn it- ,
self into a cuitomn that women must
acknowledge this by always kneeling
when they meet a man.
Duff Macdonald, who spent many
years as a missionary in that country,
says that African women hold a most
degraded position and are looked upon t
pretty generally as beasts of burden
capable of doing all the -hard work. ,
When a woman meets any man, be it
her husband or a stranger, at home or
on the road she is expected to "taidi-
wala"-that is, to kneel and clap her
hands to the lord of creation as he
passes. Although a woman may have
slaves of her own, she observes this
custom whenever she meets them on
the bigbwny.
Maclonald adds: "Whenever we saw
a woman go out of her way with the
intention of lkniel.irg before us, though
hlie ,arranl a Ihur.jredweight on her
head, u'..wlItg that she would have to
get u;p w.lt.t, wr shouted. 'You are
losing you.- Vway; this'is the path,' and
she t.o:k it, -i=d that she might dis-
ricus.p \iwa.s, <"1 tom."

The olives, stones and all, are first
crushed in a stone mill run by ox pow-
er. The mass of pulp is then trans-
ferred In flat wicker baskets to the
'torchio," or oaken press, from which
he oil oozes into a vat below. The
presses at Dievole are very old, elabo-
rately carved with the arms and de-
rices of some early padrone. Tremen-
dous pressure is applied through a
primitive capstan arrangement which
he men work by heavy wooden levers, N
walking round and round on the stone
floor in a track much worn by the
tread of laboring generations. There
are commonly two or three squeezlngs
of the pulp, the product of the first be-
Ing of the finest quality. But the proc-
ess, once begun, must be carried for-
ward continuously lest the oil should
Ipoil in the making. It is finally drawn
off into huge earthen jars of immemo-
rial pattern, like those in which the

Antiquity of Sugar.
The first menntion of sugar seems ti
have been made by. Pliny' more tlrha
i.niSr years ago. v\!~tr.ic-. it to Ara-
bia a::il gives the l.mferince to Indian
sugar, wLich he speaks of as "hunrey
found in canes." StatiuS in his de-
script!on of the Kau.rnalian says that

about the same period describe it also
as a kind of honey found in canes and
not uimae by be.s. Strabo adds that in
a solii ,tatet it resembles salt. The
sugar cane was introduced Into SicHly
In 11418 and soon afterward into Spain.
Thence sixty years later it was taken
to the West Indies, and at the end of
the eighteenth century Jamaica alone
produced quite 15,000 tons a year.

Too iuch Ciare cannot be u:ed with
small children during the hot weather of
the suaimmer 'i.oths to guard against bow-
el troubles. As a rule It is enly necessary
to give the child a dose of castor oil to
correct any disorder of the bowels. Do
not use any substitute, hut give tie old-
laslhioned castor oil, and and see ti at i:
is fresh, s rancid oil nauseates and has a
tendency to grioc. If this does not check
the bowels give Chanlmerlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and thin
a dose of c.ator oil, and the disease may
be checked in its incipiency and all dai.-
ger avoided. The castor oil and this renm-
edy should le procured at once and kept
ready for instant use as soon as the first
indication of any bowel trouble appears.

The great hotel facing the park was
an obelisk of light flecks. Motor cars
came and went noisily under the wide
porte cochere.
Back of the large hostelry and across
a narrow alley a white girlish face
banked with pillows looked out wist-
fully from the one narrow window of
a third floor back at these evidences of
life and gayety, listening to the or-
Suddenly the music burst into a wild
tropical air from "Carmen," a very revel
of life and youth and lusty, red blood-
ed joy. The invalid buried her tired
eyes in the soft pillows, and her thin
shoulders shook. Shaken by the tem-
pest of sobs, a crutch that had been
leaning against the bedside rattled to
the floor.
"Oh, I can bear their old ragtime
things without a shiver." she cried,
"but the opera alrs-they break my
heart! And now I shall never sing
them again-I know I shan't!"
The incoherent cry went straight
through the open window like a wing-
ed arrow, across the alleyway in the
grand hotel, and lodged deep in the sick
heart of a listener there. Its note of
suffering and aching longing needed no
interpreter. That is a universal lan-
guage understood alike in palace and
John Wixton had been staring mood-
ily out of the darkened shadows of his
unlighted room into the still darker
shadows of a future that looked
gloomy indeed to his usually careless,
sunny eyes. He had been hard hit-
there was no doubt of that-and the
girl's refusal of him had cut deep. He
had been so sure of her-too sure, per-
haps-but he had thought he could not
be mistaken in that warm light In her
eyes that had set his heart on fire all
these weeks.
"The light that lies in woman's eyes
--and lies -and lies--and liest" he
sneered miserably, sitting there In the
dark. "Curse the whole sex, anyway,
and their deceitful wiles!" And his
clinched hands thumped the window
sill fiercely. He had mooned o-r her
like a maundering idiot, he told himself
hotly, and now she was engaged, so
her mother had told him the last time
he called, to Billy Lunders and his mil-
lions-principally the latter, he thought
Lord! There was that beastly chan-
sonnette from "Carmen" again-could he
never escape the thing?--the song that
breathed so horribly of her in every
seductive note. She had worn a red
rose in her hair. too, that night he first
met her with the Van Lorns. He could
smell that rose now.
Tonight "Carmen" was on the bill
again. He recalled dully that he had
the same box for this performance, In-
tending to take her uud show her he
remembered that first night so long
ago. She had said men always forgot
the dates a woman remembered. He
had meant to tell her of his loving lit-
tle surprise that evening. Wos it only a
week ago? How could lie ever bear to
hear an opera -again? Curse it. He
would get out of this sickening old New
York and go west-to Chicago-any-
"These opera airs-they break my
heart!" broke in the sobbing cry from
the window across the alley. John
raised his head to listen. "Same here
kl'," he muttered heavily. "It's that
lame girl-poor little beggars She does
have a devil of a time of it, lying there
all day with hot water bags nnd things
around her. It's a shame!"
"I want to be back there on the
stage again," went on the voice, "sing-
i,4g with the rest of the chorus. I
vwus a village maiden in 'Carmen,' you
know, Mrs. Beebe." To the conscious
pride in this already well known fact
there came an indistinct murmur of
consolation from the dark interior of
t .e little room.
"And maybe some day I- might have
been a Sembrich or a Melba, my own
self-the master said so-and now my
back's hurt, and I'll never sing again.
I know it! If I could only go just
once and hear it all again I think
maybe I could bear it better, but to
be penned in here all the time like a
rat with the snappers of a trap caught
over hlis back- -It's too"- The rest was
lost in the infolding pillow.
The man in the darkened window
across the way suddenly stood up,
turned on the light and squared his
shoulders like a soldier ready for
marching. "I'll do it!" lie said grimly.
"I'll not run away like a coward. I'll
face this thing out. I've got to go
through it some time, and I might as
well begin now. I'll go right to that
same box and fight it out. And, what's
more, I'm going to take that child
along. She'll probably look a fright,
and people will stare, but hang the

opposition before him. Even the fat

Wixton glanced down at her thin lit-
tle face, sharpened by suffering; at her
two crutches and her simple white
frock. To his surprise, she appeared
tastefully gowned.
She told him quite simply, with a lit-
t'u pathetic quaver in her voice. about
lar ambition to be a great singer; how
she had fallen through a trapdoor left
carelessly open by the stage hands one
nUht after the opera was over and had
been in the charity ward of a hospital,
where they had not seemed able to
cure her; bow she could walk only a
little way without hurting.
When they reached the opera house
the first act was nearly over.
Wixton gathered up her slight form
and strode up the wide stairway as it
his burden were a baby. At tb door of
the box he halted. It was slightly
ajar. "Sold the other seats?" he ques-
tioued of the usher.

at the fortldding black letters on the
fence and climbed over it.
Halfway down the field was a little
clump of pines through which the
stream flowed. Baxter entered the
shadows of the trees, and scarcely had
he cast when his reel whirred merrily
and the line cut the water sharply.
His pulses quickened. Here was fish-
ing worth talking about. The line
slackened, and he began to reel in

A creel hung from a broad strap across
her F.!,ulder. and she carried an un-
i'A.ed rod in a leather.case.

whispered inform nation that she was a

fourth box I' rher down and came out
ill and went away. After a bit she
came back with a ticket for a seat in

When Wixton ushered his charge into
the box he found, to his surprise, that
the place was unlighted. The curtain
had just closed on the first act, and the
solitary occupant was shrinking into
the farthest corner as though seeking
to avoid observation.
John reached out to press the electric
button and turned in the blaze of light
to confront the woman who had re-
fused him the week before. Ills lips
tightened, and his face went white.
"Eunice! You here?"
The woman turned a lovely pale face
up to him entreatingly without speak-
ing. This unlooked for contretemps
had destroyed her poise, woman of the
world though she was, and left her as
excited and, embarrassed as a school-
girl. There were traces of tears about
the dark eyes, hollow from sleepless-
ness. Her soft wlhlte throat worked In
the stress ot emotion, and her bosom
rose and fell pautin.,y.
At last she found her voice. It was
low andfVlloui, and at the thrilling
sweetness` t)-.-4- ainn's heavy-heart
pounded like a mad thing behind his
immaculate shirt front.
"Jack," she whispered, "if you don't
forgive me and love me I shall die. -I
never dreamed till mamma made me
send you away how dreadfully I cared,
and I never was engaged to Billy Laun-
ders at all. I couldn't be--not if the
whole family rose up to slay me."
The orchestra began the overture to
the next act. The wild, gypsy motif of
the inmmo-rtal opera ro.e and bathed
them In its melting torrents of'love
made into music. The little cripple was
leaning over the edge of the box wait-
ing breath'essiy for the curtain to rise
on the familiar scene she loved.
"Jack, darling--hear it! That music
has been killing me till you came! Do
you remember that night we"-
John reached out an audacious thumb
and pressed the. button on the wall. As
the box was enveloped in darkness he
crushed her close in his arms, unable to
say one word.
On their way home in the carriage,
when Eunice had becn told the little
cripple's story, she laughed tenderly in
her new found joy, so nearly lost, and,
with one jeweled hand in John's and
the other caressing the young girl's
pale cheek, said with a confidence that
the future proved not unfounded: ,
"I shall take care of her, her voice,
her future and her hack. I know a
great doctor who can straighten out
this little one's tangles, even as she
has been the means of unsnarling the
dreadful knot in my web of fate."

Four trnit. by far too small to make
matters at nil Interosting, had risen to
the fly atid now slid about in the creel
as he made his way through the under-

stream widened and deepened and gave

all those indefinite possibilities which
lurk behind the secrecy of the mask.
Not but that this license of masks was
frequently abused. Alessandro VI.,
who with Madonna Lucresia, was so
fond of watching the makers go past
from the balcony of Castel St. Angelo,
had to forbid masks in 1499 under pain
of the gallows, to such an extent did
the factions and ill disposed at Rome
take advantage of them to pay off old
scores, and so many people were killed

Connected with the old Saturnalia

the less artistocratic Mimae, and no-
body who has seen the collection of
such antiquities at Rome, Naples and
Pompeii will doubt the important part
that masks played In the life ~i the
early empire. Thence we may trace
them down in the antique tarces,
which gradually blended with the sa-
cred representations of the middle
ages until they ultimately laicised
them and removed them from the

The C('ure of Money.
A negro was arrested for stealing,
He bad been caught helping himself
to the content of the cash drawer in
the store of a Mr. Appleton. The mag-
Istrate before whom rothe negro was
brought knew him and was much sur-
prised to learn the charge against the
prisoner. Looking at the negro ear-
neatly, he said: "Sam, I'm sorry to
see you here. Didn't you know that
no good could come from stolen mos-
ey? There's a curse on it."

Baxter had momentarily forgotten
;ie warning on the fence. Now her
words recalled it to his mind. He was
vkldently caught redhanded at his
poaching, and the only thiqg'to.do was
io frankly admit it. He looked at the
-i'rl before him. She was tall, well
formed and undeniably attractive. In-
deed she was quite striking as she
stood there calmly awaiting his reply.
"You have a permit, of cotriue" sbh
Asked again.
Baxter smiled quietly.
"I regret to state," said he, "I am a
deep dyed poacher."
The girl lifted her brows.
"You must have noticed the sign*,"
she said.
"I noticed one," said he, "but the
stream was too tempting to a man who
bhd landed but four small trout during
the morning. I am very sorry that my
zeal got the better of my discretion, and
I offer every apology for my unwar-
ranted intrusion. Whatever the dam-
ages are I'll settle. I plead guilty."
"I should be inclined to follow the
signs," she-said, "and prosecute you 'to
the full extent of the law' but for the
way you just landed that trout It was
splendid and shows you to be an expe-
rienced angler. If you'd bungled it I
should have let the law do its worst.
If you promise not to trespas again
you're quite free to go this time."
uaxter bowed.
"You are very generous," he de-
clared, "which makes me doubly
ashamed of my trespass. Rest assured
I shall not repeat the offense. May I
ask to whom I'm indebted for allowing
me to go unmolested?"
Something in his eyes made the girl
"Oh-it's--it's all right!" she said
haltingly. "Now please go--at once."
Still Baxter hesitated. He was not
given to pretty speeches nor to staring
at young women whom chance threw
in his way, but some indefinable charm
about the girl made him do the latter
and regret his inability to do the for-
"I'm very grateful," he said lamely
enough, "and-and"-
"And what?" she said almost sharp-
"I'd like very much," said he, "some,
time in the future to express my grati-
tude to you when we stood on an equal
footing-that is, you understand, when
I'm not poaching your stream."
He spoke so earnestly that the girl
flushed again.
"It's all right," she reiterated. "You've
been quite grateful enough. Now
please gol"
Baxter, trying vainly to think of
some plausible excuse for prolonging
the conversation, reeled up his line and
began to unjoint the rod.
Suddenly a man came crashing
through the bushes and stood before
them. The girl gave a little startled
cry of dismay. Baxter noticed the man
wore leather leggings and was clothed
In tweeds.
"'As the marstor given you flishn'
permits?" he asked, glaring at Bax-
"No," said Baxter, "but the lady"-
The man wheeled to the girl.
"'Ave you got one?" he asked.
"N-no," she said humbly, and, with-
out looking at Baxter, she added, evi-
dently for his benefit, "I'm-I'm a
poacher too."
Baxter's heart jumped at the words.
He mastered an overpowering desire
to laugh and turned to the girl.
"Well, by Georgel" was all he man-
aged to say.
"It's the master's order to take you
to the house then," said the man sol-
"See here"- Baxter began protest-
"For $2 apiece I'll let you go this
time," the man said insinuatingly.
Baxter handed him a $5 bill, and, aft-
er warning them to leave at once, the
man departed.
As the man stumbled back through
the bushes Baxter turned to the girl.
Her face was scarlet and her eyes re-
fused to meet his.
"It was frightfully mean of me," she
explained. "I thought it would be a
great joke to frighten you off by pre-
tending I owned the stream and then
fish it myself. Then that frightful
man came-and--and-to tell the truth,
I should have been dragged to the
house, for I hadn't a cent of money
with me."
She lifted her eyes to his.
"Oh, what must you think of mer'
she cried contritely.
But Baxter was laughing happily.
