AN EVENING MEDITATION.
Written for the Bnoy.
The silent evening hour is comrn
And rest from weary labors done-
The crimson.glow of dying day
In twilight slowly fades away.

Now one by one the stars look down
Upon the wonderous world around;
The darkness falls on land and sea,
And wooes my mind to reverie.

My restless soul in silence borne
Al ft upon the languid night,
In realms of fancy vision roam,
So arandly lost in pure delight.
St. Andrew, Fla., Sept. 1905. J. C. L.

THE OIL BATH.
The ancient Greeks owed much of
their physical beauty suppleness of
limb and strength of constitution to
the use of oil as a lotion.
Of late years the great value of oil
rubbing has been recognized by the
medical fraternity, and is used by
them in the treatment of many dis-
eases with the most satisfactory re.
suits. By its use, infants, if delicate,
are strengthened and nourished; if
they have bowel trouble, oil rubbed
on the abdomen assists in remedying
the disorder, relieves the pain and
soothes the child,
If' il is rubbed on the skin of per-
sons in t'ever it prevents the surface
becoming parched; also strengthens
and nourishes the patient as it is ab-
sorbed, so acts as tood.
If a person has cold in the head,
oil rubbed on the nose and breathed
loosens the cold, and freer breathing
is the result. If the cold is on the
laugs, oil rabbQd on the chest soon
relieves the suffocating feeling, and
the cough is less harsh.
Oil ruubed on the sides, back and
chest is one of the most, helpful
things that can be done for a con-
sumptive; it loosens the cough and
helps build up the tissues. Physicians
say a consumptive's case is hopeful
as long as he retains his flesh. -This
the-oil aids in doing.
Nothing equals in its efficiency an
oil bath lor a new born babe; the oil
being well rubbed over the flesh, then
rubbed off with a soft cashmere
cloth.
And finally, the woman that wish-
es to keep her complexion fresh and
skin tree from wrinkles patiently rubs
oil on tl-rface. Almond oil is consid-
ered thie best for the face; cocoanut
or olive oil for other purposes. If

' INDE ENDiNCE DAY.

According to John Adams, It Shqild
Be July 2.
On the 3d of July, 1776, John Adams,
then one of the representatives of Mas-
sachusetts In the Continental congress,
wrote to his wife Abigail:
"Yesterday the greatest question wal
decided which was ever debated in
America, and a greater perhaps never
was nor will be decided among men."
In a second letter, written the same
day, he said:
"But the day is past. The 2d of July
will be the. most memorable epocha in
the history of America. I am apt to be-
lieve that it will be celebrated by suc-
ceeding generations as the great anni-
versary festival. It ought to be com
memorated as the day of deliverance
by solemn acts of devotion to God Al-
mighty. It ought to be solemnized
with pomp and parade, with shows,
games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and
illuminations from one end of this con-
tinent to the other from this time for
ward, forevermore."
When the resolution was taken up oi
the 2d, all the states, except New York.
voted to accept it. Thus, on the 2d
day of July, 1776, the independenc<
of the thirteen united colonies from
the throne of Great Britain was defi
nitely decided upon. The 2d, and no.
the 4th, may be called the true date of
the separation. We could with propri
ety celebrate the Fourth two days ear-
lier. that-the participants in the work
considered the 2d as the true date is
shown by the letters written by Johi
Adams, quoted at the beginning of the
article. The popular fancy, however.
seized upon the 4th, the date of accept
aneB of Jefferson's more dramatic dec-
laration of the reasons for the sepa
ration, as the proper day to celebrate.
The debate upon the docurment wn
contlritedA unwt. .t a at(j-iten. lO o t-,-
4th, and, -says Jefferson, might have
run on interminably at any other sea-
son of the year. But the weather wa-;
oppressively warm, and the hall in
which the deputies sat was close to a
stable, "whence the hungry flies
swarmed thick and fierce, alighting onr
the legs of the delegates and biting
hard through their thin silk stockings
Treason was preferable to discomfort,"
and at last the delegates were brought
to. such a state of mind as to agree to
the Declaration without further amend-
ment.
It Is a mistake to suppose that the
document was signed by the delegates
on that day. It is improbable that any
signing was done save by John Han-
cock, the president of the congress, and
Charles Thomson, the secretary.-Paul
Lelaud Havworth In Harper's Maga-
zine.

No Twliivht In Mexico.
There is almost no twilight in Mex-
ico. You watch the sun. a blazing orb,
descending with growing swiftness and
wreathed in a veil of fire toward the
horizon. Around, the air is amber tint-
ed, glowing. Suddenly It begins to
drop behind the distant mountains, and
the shadows advance across the plain,
swallowing up the landscape in mellow
gloom. The shadow draws near and
nearer-envelops the town. Behind you
the sky is still lit up with the rosy
beams. A line of shadow creeps swift-
ly up the rugged sIdes of old Popocate-
petl, obscuring completely the base of
the mountain as it advances. Up, up
the snow capped crest, deepening in
tint until at last it hangs like a great
opal against the darkening sky. A mo-
ment it remains so, glowing and quiv-
ering as If on lire-grows smaller and
Is gone. Night has come.
Through the dusky silence you seek
your hotel, passing on the roadside si-
lent figures, fagot laden. "Adios, se-
nor." Their soft voiced greeting falls
upon yorr ear like a benediction.-Lee
W. Ziegler in llRccreation.

Peter the Great and Lawyers.
In Russia during the re!gn of P'eter
the Great private litigants might have
their suits prosecuted free of cost by
lawyers paid by the state. The emper--
or, discovering that his subjects were
being imposed upon by their legal
agents, who contrived to delay trials
until they had sucked their clients dry,
enacted that sufficient solicitors and
attorneys should be employed at hand-
'some yearly salaries to officiate for
the public in every matter of law. IIe
ordered further that these men should
insert in a register written up daily
the dates of applications to them and
should proceed with the suits in the
order in which they were received
without respect of persons. If they
failed to do so, if they accepted any
bribe or fee or if they were dilatory
these lawyers were to be knouted and

able to find that they know, as they
might readily do, when the weapon
was loaded and when empty. They
show no interest in it, such as mon-
keys- readily display toward uIny ine-

Men Who Isul.e C('lub.s.
As to social cimbs of mein, t. ei'' are
two classes of lmembelrs-the positive
and the negative. In an org-'.hi.:atlit
of a thousand members you will find,
probably, nine hlundrtd and ninety-
nine negatives andt onfe positive. This
one positive is seldom the president,
but nearly always the treasurer or sec-
retary. It is he who regards the club
as his home, his family, 'is' wife and


children. His whole heart is wrapped
up in its success. He brings in the
new members and is always on hand
to shoulder burdens which the nega-
tives willingly impose upon him. He
silver rebels, never protests, never comn-
aidns;-. A clib l Is a community of self-
ish lintcrests, as a rlie, and every stilf
ish negative agrees with every other
selfish negative that such and such a
man is the ideal secretary, treasurer
or manager. A Agood secretary or
treasurer is seilo pPromoted; he la too
useful.-New York Pras.

Paley on Private Property.
Archdeacon Paley, who died on May
25, 1805, wrote "Evidences of Chris-
tlanity." The archdeacon likened "the
divine right of kings" to "the divine
right of constables" and satirized the
Institution of private property by the
simile of a hundred pigeons in a field
of corn. If, "instead of each picking
where and what it liked, taking just
as much as it wanted and no more,"
ninety-nine of them were to reserve
only the chaff an(l refuse for them-
selves and heap up the rest for "the
weakest, perhaps worst, pigeon of the
flock," that, said Paley, wouMl be just
like human private property.

Four White Fetlocks.
In France in former times a horse
that possessed four white st'll.iin.gs
had tie privilege of being free from
toll. There is a passage in one of the
works of Frederick Mistral, the famous
poet of Provence, to the folI.iwluit ef-
.fect: "By the rule of the road there
was an old custom which was respect-
ed by all, that the carter whose leader
had four white stockings, whether go-
ing uphill or downhill, had the right
not to leave the road-that Ls, the nar-

Cooking In Naples.
In Naples cooking is done anywhere
and anyhow-inside and outside, on
sheet iron stoves, on tin boxes, in stone
Jars or In clay baked earth. Here a
cobbler slts from early to late out on
a corner of a sidewalk near a public
"l.,ttrlua," to which he attends whben-
ever necessary; when not, he mends;
-also makes shoes. Near him sl a gran-
Ite arrangement Where he cooks his
meals. ItU is about one ',fpot bl,"

at the bottom is an opening for dratt,
and a savory smell always arises from
a little black pot if one passes there
at noon or toward the evening. *I saw
a stove and a woman busy cooking out
on a balcony, with about six feet of
stovepipe braced against the railing.-

Iow Dew Formws.
Dew was formerly supposed to fall
softly from the heavens, and to this
belief may be ascribed many current
and poetical phrases; but dew does
not fall in the exact meaning of the
term. The condensation of watery
vapor follows upon the chilling of the
air. This is seen as the earth cools
toward night, and it takes place most
rapidly near-the ground. Grass and
other vegetation cools more rapidly
than the atr above its The air in con-
tact with plans is thus chilled and de-
posits its moisture upon the leaves of
the plants in dew. When the chilling
of the air proceeds further, the mois-
ture may be precipitated to a consider-
able height above the earth's surface,
and it then becomes what we call fog.

Motley'R First London Dinner.
When Mr. Motley, the historian, wad
American minister to London he had
trouble at his first dinner party. Mr.
Leveson Gower says: "At that time
couples were sent In to dinner in pairs,
but nobody's place was fixed. Utlfor*
tuuately the Turkish ambassador wag
allotted to Lady Waldegrave, who did
not care to have him as her neighbor.
She consequently told him that hil
place was at the other side of the ta.
ble. lie, with oriental politeness, did
as sbe bade him and sat down opposite
to hler. This upset the whole arrange-
inenrlt. Tihe couples: wandered about the
room like sheep that were being driven
out of a field. Mr. Motley, who had ev-
ery m'rit except a good temper, went
into a passion, and I nearly died of
la ughing."

The manufacture of wire is of vcry

was made in Minera 800 years B. C.

form of kidney trouble.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is not rec-

just the remedy you need. It has been tested
in so many ways, in hospital work, in private
practice, among the helpless too poor to pur-
3hase relief and has proved so successful in
very case that a special arrangement has
been made by which all readers of this paper
who have not already tried it, may have a
ample bottle sent free by mail, also a book
telling more about Swamp-Root and how to
:ind out if you have kidney or bladder trouble.

UTnder very favorable circumstances
a banana plant may give a stem of
fruit In nine months, but it generally
takes from fifteen to eighteen months
for the average plantations to be in full
bearing. The life .of a plantation
varies nn'riinig to tlhe fertility of its
soil ahd topographical situation. Some


soils may need a rest in six or seven
years, m I IP t ctlatrs mayy lauit practically
forever, as sin ises where periodically
enrich-ed iby- ,'alluvial deposits. Sandy
loamn, through which water or rain will
freely percolate, is the best soil for
bananas. The stalk needs a large
amount, of rainfall for its successful
development, but water must not be
allowed to remain on the sarfm-e or
immediately under the surface of the
soil surrounding It, lest the water be
heated by the tropical sun and be-
come stagnant, in which case it will
kill the plant.--Ch(bcgo Journal.

Sone ic easonable Advice.
It may I-e a Ldece of superfluous advice
to urge peopleIat this season of the year
to lay in a supply of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. It is almost sure to be
needed before winter is over, 'and much
more prompt and satiifactor results are
.obtained nlien taken as soon as a cold is
contracted asa before It has become set-
tled iui the i em', which 'can ioaly be
done by keepil; T1~~e'emedy at h.,nd
This remedy is so widely known and so
altogether good that no one should hes:-
tute about buying it in preference to any
oth-r, It is. or sale by L. M: Ware, St.
Andrew and Bdayhead and all medicine
dealers.
'lnse 1'ouibiliiiea.
A Richmond (Va.) Judge tells a story
which illustrates the difficulty met in
trying to to.'p the carrying of pistols.
A tough youth was brought before the
judge, charged with firing a revolver
in the street The testimony in the
case was to the effect that the young
hoodlum had filled himself with whis-
ky and had discharged his weapon in
a crowded street. "Twenty dollars and
costs," said the magistrate. "But, your
honor," interposed counsel for the pris-
oner, "my client did not hit anybody."
"Why, you admit that he fired the
gun?" "Yes, but he fired In the air,"
explained the lawyer. "Twenty dol-
lars and costs," repeated the judge.
"He might have shot an angel." And
the riotous fellow went to jail, not
having the money to pay his fine.
A Curions Custon.
In Byfleld, a rS:Ill Northampton-
shire village In EngL.nd, a curious old
custom is still observed In connection
with the letting of certain land. The
ceremony is held in different licensed
houses in the vicinity, and the clergy-
man presides over the proceedings.
The company, chiefly consisting of lo-
cal farunic.-Y. Is seated round a large
table. I're gently one of them rises and
bids a certain amount, immediately
walking round the table and out of the
door. If this can be done before the
next bid is made, the land Is his for the
season; if not, bidder No. 2 commences
the walk, and so on. This curious auc-
tion occupies some considerable time
and ca se grjieat excitement.
Now Cure for Cancer,
All surface cancers are now known to
be curable, b. Backlen's Arnica Salve
,as. Walters, of Duftiold. Va., writes:
*I had a cancer on *my lip for years'
that seemed incurable, till Bucklen's
Arnica Solve healed it, and now it is
perfectly .well." Guaranteed cure for
cuts and burns. 25c. at A. H. Brake's
Store.


T'ootbbrbesln.
"In the straight toothbrush one thigh
bone of a beef twelve inches long and
four in diameter will cut four perfect
Blanks. The same bone will cut only
two of these fancy curved pieces.
That's one thing that makes the dif-
ferenee in cost between plain and fan-
cy," said a manufacturer. "When the
bone is cut to length and shaped, bris-
tles are hand drawn by wire or thread
through the brush part, each group of
bristles having its own leader. Then
they are securely fastened, and the
work is finished. When the bristles
first go in they are fully three inches
long. After being firmly secured they
are cut down to the size required.
What bristle is best? Well, in some re-
spects that's a matter of taste. It is
all hog bristle, but whether soft or
hard depends on the user."

S The First Friction iMatches.
The first really practicable friction
S matches were made by an English
apothecary named Walker in 1827. He
coated splints of cardboard with sul-
phur and tipped them with a mixture
b6 sulphate of antimony, chlorate of
potash and gum. Each box, holding
eighty-four matches and sold for a
chilling, contained also a folded piece
of glass paper, which was to be pressed
together while the match was drawn
through it. Thi:'o vo.,:-,s rater another
Ingenious pert'soni t:;n;i:' Jrm-,es in Lon-
don, pIatntted 4r1e -'i of nmkinug a
small *il of pi'eor, soaked with cilo-
rale of .pta.sn; l i. sugar at one eind,
with a thin glass gthtbule filled with
strong sulphuric acid attached at the
share point. When the sulphuric acid
was liberated by pinching the globule
it acted upon the chlor'ate of potash
and sugar so as to produce tire.

NFrllroes In Hearea.
"I know an Irishm:an in Amesbury,"
Mr. Whittler once said, his eyes twin
king at the remembrance, "who was
f'ery iMur'h (oppos.-.i to social equality
for the negro. I said to him: 'But there
are many Catholic negroes lu Brazil,
the West Indies and other places. Thy
c church accounts of then as it does of
thee. And they'll have to come .o It In
heaven. Thee'll have to meet tie ne-
groes there on equal terms.' I thought
that I had silenced him with an unan-
swerable argument. He sat mustug for
a moment, then, looking up at me,
'And can't the Lord make them white
LI heaven, Mr. Whittier?' "


A WONDERFUL MONSTER.
Description of a Xewr Bnttlerhip JI
the Svc(e-leinthi Century.
Is it truo tlb i oL-e iain battleships are
Sbut old inventions In new forms? Ji
Looks like it. Some one has unearthed
a curious announcement which ap
Speared in the Mercurius Pollticus for
Dec. 6, 1658, to the effect, as stated by
the Dundee Advertiser, that "the fa-
mous monster called a ship built at
Rotterdam by a French engineer is
now launched." In a descripntonrof the
vessel its capabilities are thus detailed:
"(1) To sail by means of certain in-
struments and wheels (without masts
and sails) as swift as the moon or at
least thirty miles every hour. (2) Both
ends are made alike, and the ship can
be stopped at pleasure and turned as
easily as a bird can turn. (3) In t!me
of war it can with one bounce make a
hole under water in the greatest man
of-war as big as a table and in an
hour's time will be able to sink fifteen
or sixteen ships and in three or four
hours will destroy a whole fleet. (4)
She will be able to go to the East
Indles and back again in eight or nine
weeks. (5) She may be used to kill
wlhnles in Greenland, so that a hun-
dred ships may be laden in fourteen
days. (6) She may be used. to break
down any pier or wooden work with
great case,"
A wonderful "monster" this must
have been. What, one is curious to
know, was her fate?
An Important Moment.
Mr. Newlywed (in the kitchen)--
What are you cooking there, my dear?
Mrs. Newlywed (excitedly)--Don't both-
cr me now. There's the cookery book.

A well klnon traveling man who visits
the drug trade says he has often hard
druggists inquire of cnstoners who asked
for a cough medicine, whether it was
want''d for a child or an adult, and if for
a child clhey almost invariably recom-
niended Cl omerlain's Cough Remedy.
ihe reason for this is that they know
there is no danger from it and tlat It al-i
ways eires. There is not the 1; st d tiiger
iii giving it, aLd fer cuughs, colJs and

BEST FOR THE

BOWELS
If you haven't a regular, healthy movement of the
bowels every day, you're ill or will be. Keep your


bowels open, and be well. Force, in the shape of
violent physic or pill poison, is dangerous. The
smoothest, easiest, most perfect way of keeping
the bowels clear and clean is to take

Enlarged Finger Joints.
Enlarged finger joints ire the source
of annoyance and mortification. Some-
times they are caused by pulling the
fingers to make the joints "crack."
Sometimes they are the result of hard
work, rheumatism or goat. They may
be relieved by light lotary massage
(rubbing around and;' around and

and fingers and strokuf upward), ac-
Scompanied by the appio tion of oil of

How to Cure C(orisa fd unions.
First soak the corn auiiun in warm

"Compulsory Greek."
To show you how advisable it is that
great attention should be given 'to the
study of Greek I wanted to present
"Oedipus Rex" on my London stage. I
went to the lord chamberlain to ask his
permission. "No," he replied, "certain-
ly not." "But," I answered, "they do
it at Oxford." "Yes," said he; "but
they do It in Greek'apd nobody under-
stands it. Play it in Greek and I will
give you my permission." That was
compulsory Greek with a vengeance.-

Don't Borrow Trouble.


It is a bad habit to borrow anything,
but the worst thing you can possibly
borrow, is trouble. When sick, sore,
heavy, weary and worn-out by the-pains
and poisons of dyspepsia, biliousness,
Bright's disease and similar internal
disorders, don't sit down and brood over
your symptoms, but'fly for relief to Elec-
triic Bitters. Here you will find sure and
permanent forgetfulness of all your
troubles, and your body will not be bur"
dened by a load of debt disease. At A'
H. Brake's score, Price 0Oc., Guaran-

It is what might properly be <'n :'t
a "volcanic dike." This dike exts-il-
for some distance along Fail river.
near its banks and nl ary parallel !c
the course. 'It bears close re.-esuiblan',
to a roughly constructed wall. TIh
top of thls dike is very r:,igce alh.
the height of varying altitudes. I,
some.places it is twenty feet high ains
several feet in thickuess, and agai,
may be easily clambered over. The rocl,
of which this wall of not'ure is corn
posed is of a very ip)rous character,
bearing sor-e resemblance to puiiict
stone, though .-much more solid atml of
greater specific gravity.
That entire region Is of volc;anc ori
gin and ev gentlyy was once the scene
of great eruptive activity. Scoria ahd
lava abound, though the face of the
country is now thickly clad with timber
and brush. The dike begins and ends
abruptly.
The wall of the dike is evidently the
result of volcanic forces, and has no
doubt stood for !many centuries. It
stands clear from clinging rdcks, has
a narrow foundation. with vertical
walls, and is very strtilght. The mys-
tery is what forces of nature could

TELEPHONIC

ROMANCE
By AMY DUPR EB

0Qpyright. I90, bty 0. McClure

"Two hundred thirty-four J don't an-
swer," said central, ringing off, but be
fore she ciuld lean back for an in-
stant's breathing spell 719 M called her
up again.
"Central, why can't I get my house?"
"I'm sure I don't know," she answer-
ed, with a suspicion of laughter in her
voice.
"I'll bet those confounded servants
are gossiping down in the basement.
Ring 'em again, and ring 'em like
thunder."
Central obeyed his orders energetical-
ly, but without results.
"I can't get any answer," she said
gently to the Irate man at the other
end of the line, "but I'll try them again,
in a few minutes, and if I get an an-
swer I'll call you up. No, I won't for-
get," she said, almost before the man
had uttered his warning. "I know you
call the house every morning'from your
office."
"Thank you," said the man, much
mollified. "Those servants are so care-
less, and my niece, who looks after the
children, is confined to her room by
illness."
Circleville'# telephone system was
not very complicated. The-three girls
who presided in the central office were
not kept occupied as in a larger city
because this was a new institution In
the pretty inland city and subscribers
were not coming in fast enough to sat-
isfy the telephone company. Only one
of the girls hailed from Circlevllle.
The 'other two were from Chicago, and
It was Margaret Baxter, one of the
Chicago girls, who had answered Mr.
Dickson's imperative calls.
For the next few minutes she was
kept busy plugging in and out on her
board. But all the time a queer little
smile hovered about her lips and a
light almost tender shone In her eyes.
"It would be very funny," she said
to herself, "if it should all be straight-
ened out by telephone, and I would
uot be at.all surprised if that is just
what Jack hoped for." Then she turn-
ed suddenly and rang up 234 J.
A rather thick voice, with a distinct
brogue answered this call with a sul-
len "Hello." Margaret's face turned
grave and firm lines showed about her
mouth.
"Why has no one answered the tele-
phone?" she said rather sternly. "I
have been ringing you on and off for
fifteen minutes."
"Sure I've something' to do beside
running' u,.them stairs to answer this
bell. It's a wonder a woman can't eat
her breakfast in peace."
Margaret connected 234 J with 719
M, sighing softly to herself, "Poor
.Charley and his babies at the mercy
of that woman." ,
The conversation at the-wire cialm-
ed her attention. There were reasons
why she felt she had a right to listen.
"Hello, Mary, is this you'
"Yes, sir."
"How is Master Reginald?"
"Fine, sir,"
"What did he eat for his breakfast?"
"A peach, a bowl of rice and milk
and five cakes."
"Now, Mary, I've told you repeated-
ly not to let him have hot cakes."
"Then, sir, you'll have to stay at
home and keep him from it. It's a
cock I am and no nurse."
"Well, well," said the man anxious-
ly, as one who related he was in a
predicament and needed the good will
of every one. "I'm sure while Miss
Ellen is sick you will look after the
children, and I will not forget it when
I pay you next week."
This bit of dblomacy elicited no

LEGAL NOTICES.

Notice of Applieation for Tax
Deed
Under Section 8 of Chapter 4888, Laws of
Florida.
Notice is hereby giver, that Wm. A. EKm-
uions and Emm1 a M. Eninons, purchasers
of Tax Certificate No.| 831, dated the 2d
dav of June, A. .1i91, has filed said ccr-
'ificato ii my office, and has made a plic;-
tion for tax deed to issue in accordance
with law. Said certificate embraces the


change one day and a box of candy an-
other. Several times he was tempted to
call, in person, but he finally decided
that seeing the girl face to face might
prove a disillusion. Faces and voices
do not always harmonize, and'yet he
thought of the great relief It was to re-
ceive messages from central instead of
Irate Mary or butterfly Ellen. He felt
sure that this particular voice stood
for a face fair and womanly. Then he
would recall a recent letter from his
son, Aunt Mary would come for-a con-
sideration.
But finally 'n inspiration came to
him. Reggie -was having a birthday.
Ellen, with characteristic heedlessness.
had forgotten this Important event and
had arranged to join a house party for
the very night. But this should not
stand in the way of a proper observ-
ance of the occasion. Reggie should
have a birthday spree, and the guest of
honor should )e this central girl, with
whom the twq children had held many
little talks across the wire,
She accepted the invitation sent in
Reggie's name. She rode out in the
runabout driven by the suspicious Tim,
who had. made unpleasant remarks to
his wife about old fools and pretty
girls. And she finally entered the
door opened by Mr. Dicksou himself.
He gave a sigh of relief, which was
drowned in the tumultuous greetings
of the children. She was just what he
had dreamed of, but what he had not
dared to hope for. They had a merry
evening, and when the two children
were sitting down, one on either side
of her, to hedr what Reggle described
as corking goblin stories, the sound
of a latchkey fell upon Mr. Dickson's
ear.
He rose uncertainly; so did Margaret
Baxter, and so did the two children.
And that was the scene upon which en-
tered Charles Dickson, general repre-
sentative for the Excelsior Hardware
comp4iny, just returned from a hard
tri~ on the ruid. fHa lauke at his fa,


*?ply from the other end of the wire.
:ia-s -hii 1;cs*i. gonae o school?"
"She hals Vot. Sur- the 5ctrIng's off
ier hoed rtd o: f her reiuibber3 Is
:)st eutlrely,,and I tld her she'd best
'a.-- home till her Aunt Ellen could
4dt about."
"Dear, dear," said the man, and a
prodigious s'gh seemed to choke his
utterance.
"Is that all, sir?" said the woman
impatiently.
"I guess so," he replied reluctantly
and hung up his receiver.
At her end of the wire the woman
slammed up the receiver with a crash
which made, central flush just a bit
angrily. Clump, clump, clump, she
went down the basement stairway to
meet a look of inquiry on the face of
her husband, gardener and man of all
work for Henry Dickson, president of
the Excelsior Hardware company.
"Bure, it's the same old thing," she
said snappishly as she tossed the soap
into the dish pan. "Frettln' his soul
.out about those two children. It's no
place for me and you, Tim. Either the
old man or the young un ought to
marry. What with church and par-
thies and a fly be night nature into the
bargain, Mig. Ellen's no good at all, at
all. When use'ss in the house she's in
bed, and when she's not in bed she's
out of the bosee."
Tim shoao~l head and marched out
to the stable, and Mary turned to face
a shrinking little figure in the door-
way.
"I want to sit behind the stove, Mary.
There's no fire in the library, and I'm
cold all over."
"I'll bet the yoifng un's goin' to be
sick," said Mary as she made room for
the child on the wood box behind the
stove. "She ought to had on her warm
flannels last week. Sit there, dear,
whilst I tell you about the fairies Pad-
dy O'Glyn met on his way to Donegal
fair."
The man at the other end of the line
had been leaning back in a chair, star-
ing up at the ceiling. Finally he called
his stenographer and dictated a letter.
It was addressed to Charles Dickson
and wound up as follows:
S"While you're in Chicago I wish you
would stop in to see your aunt Mary
Graves. Things are not going right at
the house, I fear. Ellen Is too frivolous
and fond of society to do what is en-
tirely right by us and the children.
Your aunt Mary is a capable woman
and would pull things together" in less
than no time."
But even with the letter started on
its way Mr. Dickson felt uneasy. Aunt
Mary was capable, but was she sym-
pathetic enough to deal with those
children? He recalled the gentle ways
and the fair face of the dead daughter-
in-law. He wished somehow Aunt Mary
would wave her hair about her face
and smile once in awhile. But she was
better than the more uncertain element
he had dreaded-a stepmother for his
beloved grandchildren.
And all the time Margaret Baxter sat
in front of the switchboard, plugging
the jacks and thinking. Just before he
closed ui bs desk to go home Mr.
Dickson was surprised to catch her
voice with a new, almost friendly ac-
cent .- '.
'Is this MIr. Dickeon-" .

"Shall I all Mary and tell her to
have the children come down to meet
you'?"
Mr. Dickson lived Aome distance be-
yond the street car terminus, and Tim
always drove down in the runabout to
meet him. ,It nnver struck him as odd
that the telephone girl knew of his
daily habit. Perhaps she lived in the
neighborhood.' He answered in a re-
-lieved tone:
"Yes; I'd forgotten to call her."
"And if you didn't call her she
wouldn't remember, would she?"
"No, no," agreed the man; "these
servants are a great trial." Then as
central rang off he murmured to him-
self: "There's a girl who will male a
fine business woman some day. I
would not mind having her in my
office."
And, though he could never tell just
how it happened, from that time on It
was central who had the trying conver-
sation with Mary until Miss Ellen got
about, and after that with Miss Ellen
herself, merely giving him a condensed
report of the conversation. This saved
his time, which was valuable, and it
pleased his fancy that some one appre-
ciated his absorbing interest in the
children.
That was why he had a bouquet of
flowers sent up to the telephone ex-


an Adonis, neither was I afraid of
breaking the camera, but for one rea-
son or another I had faced a photog-
rapher. Picture, was It? Was she the
girl? I wondered.
"It wasn't bone, metal, stone, paper
or wood," she went on. "And she
didn't wenr it as a protection against
anything. She just wore it Ibrcause
she liked it, lwea"nse she liked 17:e man
whose picture was tu it"
"It wasn't an amulet then," i said,
setting down my cup.
"It was an amulet," contradicted
Florine. "Unimaginary folks get th!oir
definitions out of the dictionary. Olher
people"-
"How about a walk'i" I interrupted.
I couldn't even pretend to be disagree-
able any longer; neither could I mus-
ter up determination enough to leave
her-lovely, :laughing sprite that she
was. Perhaps thdre was less danger
in walking.
"But I am going to have another
caller," she demurred.
"Do you see him In your teacup?"
I asked.
"No; I see him at the gate," she
laughed, "although he may be coming
to see mamma. He is very foud of
mamma. Possibly I shall be at the
summer house soon."
, It was clearly a dare, and I took it.
I went to the summer house. Around
the bummer house are trees and flow-
ers; in front is a miniature lake-a
beautiful place, but a dangerous one
when a man has no right to tell what
sometimes dims his eyes'and impedes
his speech.
As I sat down something at my feet
caught my eye.- I picked it up. It was
a heart shaped locket set with rubles.
It flew open in my hand, disclosing
two scraps of white cloth. I exam-
ined the pieces with some interest, es-
pecially as I noticed that my mono-
gram graced the upper one. They were

politely.
"To have it told around that you

scorn.
Then Florine laughed. When Florine
laughs-
"You poor old dear!" she exclaimed
as soon as she was able. "I don't be-

I was solid on that score, for I had
just learned the definition from thel

'An object, usually a peculiar bit
of stone, metal, bone, paper, wood o:

"Oh, don't!" she choked. "You arc

another gale of laughter.
"I don't see where the absurdity
comes in," I retorted. "If that isn't
an amulet, then what is it?"
I supped my tea with dignity while
Florine recovered herself.

chiefs evidently. Anyway it was my
ruon ol'Q:a.. VWhen my eyes fell on the
other piece a bewildering lot of
tlhoug'hts chased through my brain, for
that piece bore my proflle, traced clev-
orly ini purple ink, Florine's amulet-
a "piir'i:.- of a man she liked!" No
more letting a paltry fortune stand be-
tw'oen us, if she really cares, and it
must be she cares, or-
ViWhen I g)t so far I jumped up and
started joyfully for Florine's presence.
'hen another idea assailed me. Sup-
pose Florine should think that my find-
ing the amulet influenced my declara-
tion; that it was in affair of honor, so
to sie)iak. I laid the locket carefully
under ia Emill fir anl went back to the
summer house. I was scarcely seated
when Ilorine came flying down the
path, her flimsy gown floating like a
lovely white cloud around her.
"Yon can laugh or you can scold. I
don't care!" she asserted tearfully. "I
did wear an amulet, but now it's
gone!"
She sat down by me and dabbed at
her pretty eyes with a square inch of
lace edged linen.
I neither laughed nor scolded. I be-
gan telling her a story:
"Once upon a time there lived a beau-
tiful princess adored by every one. In
her court was a man, neither rich nor
overwise, but loving her, he thought,
best of all. She accused him of having
no imagination, and maybe he had
none, but he saw In the sunset gqld of


the princess hair, In every blue' flower
hue of her eyes, in every purling
streamlet, the music of her laughter.-
Often he criticized the princess, al-
though to him she was perfect"-
"What did he do it for, then?" cried
Florine.
"He had a mighty purpose."
Florine giggled. I looked at her sus-
piciously, but she made another dab at
her eyes, so I went on:
"For all his harsh words he repented
in sackcloth and ashes, and when the
day of his repentance was over he
knelt on the ground at her feet"-
"Oh, no!"- corrected Florine. "He
might have taken rheumatism or some-
thing."
Were ever eyes so blue or lips so
sweet? I plunged ahead recklessly:
"He took her little hand in his"-
suiting action to the word-"and put
his arm around her so and kissed her
like this"-
"How dare you?" said Florine very
softly.
"I don't dare," I answered meekly.
"I was only showing you what the man
did who belonged in the court of the
princess."
"'Well, go on," she commanded.
"I can't."
"Why ?"
"I don't know what the princess did
after he-after that," I sighed, al-
though looking at Florine hopefully.
She smiled.
"Oh, the princess said, 'I have lost
my amulet, and I can never see hap-
piness without it; so methinks I will
publish a decree that to him who find-
eth it will I give his heart's desire.'"
"Describe the amulet, 0 pringes"r'
"The decree should state that the
amulet is enclosed within a. case of
gold, shaped like my loving heart and
set around with rubles like drops of
my own heart's blood; that the amu-
let is of fine linen, marked with purple;
that each separate line stands for love,
trust, happiness; that at the lines to-
gether form the lineaments of-of"--
Florlne's dark lashes rested upon
very pink cheeks. She hesitated.
"I go to search for the amulet," I an-
nounced, rising.
She looked at' me approvingly. I
peered under the step, made two short
detours in the direction of the lake,
then discovered it under a small fir
tree.
Florine clapped her little hands.
"How beautifully the story proceeds"
she cried as I sat down again to tell
her my heart's desire.
"I am wondering, though," she mused
a very long time afterward, "how the
man canmr to find the amulet under a
fir tree when the princess lost it In the
summer house."

There Is a strength or quiet enaur-
ance as significant of courage as the
most daring feats of prowess.-Tucker-
