mustn't. WVhen you first came here he
ind I were downtown and met you."
"AI 1 on sight my heart got down
for you to walk on! I remember that
first time." He drew her to a seat be-
side him on a log in the wood adjoin-
in,, Ihe links where they were suppos-
ed to be playing golf. "What did your
father say ?"
"I asked who you were and was In-
formed that you were the new lawyer,
gaod, but hopelessly young and -
ad --
"Impecunious," Philip Hardy sup-
plied. "Guilty, your honor. What
could he expect of a neow lawyer? And
I can't help being young."
"And he remarked on your good
locks."
"Naturally," said Philip modestly.
"'lie ha.; goodl taste. I'm glad he likes
hLI future son-in-law. But why else
.iod yto like me?" t
"Wcil. father was saving me for my

Sl.'? .'thel. AuI thuen-I saw you
'rnd objected more than ever to being
:aved up for a mere cousin, who prob-
ably wants me as little as I want
him."
"Your father needn't worry. I knew
Robortason at college. lie is engaged to


Eleanor Payne and wants to get into
,he good graces of her father." Alida
gasped.
"Well! And I almost hated Eleanor
because I thought you were in love
with her! Father thinks so."
"It was you.-, I kept with her to
,avoid the temptation to tell you that I
loved you, for I had no right to offer
you--nithing. And here I am! I can
give ynm a little home-nothing like
your father's-and I think I can make
you happy. Will you come?" She
.eaned her cheek to his.
"Yes," shle answered simply, "I will
I come." He expressed his satisfaction
with silent effectiveness. Then he
asked:
"When shall I tell your father?"
"Oh, Phil! He will never consent..
Don't ask him yet!"
"I said 'tell him,' not 'ask him,' dear.
Does he approve my supposed passion
for Eleanor Payne? Yes? Then if he
love his neighbor as himself he'd be
quite as willing to have me for his
o~wnu son-in-law as to sacrifice Judge
Payne. So I'm not to tell him?"
"Get better acquainted with him first.
You know he's president of the Twen-
ty-fivers!"
"Yes, and of the bank and the gotif


club and the liprbvement league, arid,
for all I know, the kindergarten"
"Don't try to be funny. It's the most
exclusive club in Westerville. You
ought to be honored by belug elected
to membership."
"I am. Initiation comes in a week
or two. I must try to win the doc-
tor's favor."
"Well, follow Eleanor conspicuously
-not me. We must go. It's too dark
even to pretend to play golf."
Philip left his betrothed at the gate
of her home. As he swung happily
down the street he overtook Eleanor.
and as he lent to tell her the joy that
had l-efnllen him they mnet Allda's
father. Dr. Marston. and old Dr. Hayes

..eel... le Isda.nerbuly attractive and
I was afraid Alida would take a fancy
to him. Her mother and I have al-
ways wanted her to marry Robertson.
When he comes he can look after his
own interests."
A week passed. Alida and Philip
met often at social functions and at
the home of Eleanor, to whom Hardy
was apparently devoted. Robertson
came, was voted into the club and fol-
lowed in Allda's wake, to the joyful
expectancy of her father.
Initiation night brought great fes-
tivities to the club. The two new can-
didates were subjected to the cus-
tomary torture, but they bore it with
admirable stoicism and were at length
released.
At the banquet table the gayety ran
high. Wit and satire ruled, but with
the toasts came solemnity, whether
real or mock the new men could not
discover. Pledges and responses be-
came more and more funereal. Final-
ly Dr. Marston, Alida's father, rose
from his place. and as president of the
club pledged the health, happiness and
prosperity of the Initiated and made a
lugubrious speech as -to their duties
and responsibilities.
"Gentlemen," he finished, addressing
Hardy and Robertson, "you alone of
this august body are single men-the
rest are dignified men of family. It is
your solem.i-only the married know
how solemn-duty to marry and have
homes for your own solace and the
entertainment of this organization.
You should choose from Westerville,
for her fair ones must not fall into
alien hands. This Is all. Gentlemen,
your health and happiness; and we ex-
pect you to act according to orders."
After the applause ceased Hardy rose.
His speech, pithy and brilliant, was
again and again interrupted by clap'
pin!s, and be waited for silence. At the
last he turned directly to Alida's father
and took up the last clause in his rec-
ommendations.
"We shall," he said-"for I speak
also for Robertson-obey you, doctor,
au far as in us lies. But, supposing that
your daughters will none of us and our
homes, what then? You have coun-
Soled us. It is therefore your duty to
uphold us In the way 'that never did
run smooth.' Will you aid and abet
us? In any such scheme have we your
co-operation and support your con-
sent?" The words, lightly spoken, had
still an undercurrent of serious mean-
ing. "Do you pledge us your fatherly
sanction?" He paused for a reply, and
at a signal" from Judge Payne they
rose as one man and uttered a solemn
"lYe do."
A few days later Dr. Marston
brought Judge Payne home from the
chess club for a midnight inch. The
light burned low in the library, but
passing through the dim hall they
heard sounds of mirth emanating from
the dining room. The doctor pushed
aside the portieres.
In the soft candle light Alida presid-
ed at a dainty lunch. Philip Hardy
sat opposite, and at her right William
Robertson faced Eleanor Payne. The
young, folks rose gleefully.
"Join us!" they cried, but the doc-
tor shook his head.
"The judge and I have outlived mid-
night lobster salads and Welsh rabbits.
We'll have Dutch lunch in the library.
You seem to be having a good time!"
lie beamed on them. "May I ask itf
these festivities mean anything in par-
ticular?"
"Only an informal attempt to satisfy
hunger, daddy," Alida answered. "We
have been at cards all evening."
Hardy leaned over and said to Rob-
ertson in a low tone, "As well now as
ever; they are both in high good hu-
mor." Both men arose, and the girls,
hardly knowing why, arose too.
"Sir," spoke Hardy, "this Is some-
thing rather especial. We are celebrat-
ing the consent of two fathers to the
engagement of their daughters." Judge
Payne looked approvingly at his daugh-


ter and Hardy, while the doctor re-
garded Alida and Robertson with
scarce concealed satisfaction that his
plan had carried so perfectly. But all
at once before the astonished parental
eyes an inexplicable shifting of part-
ners seemed to be taking place. Hardy
took-Alida by the hand. Robertson
put an arm about-Eleanor. The pa-
rental tribunal stood gasping, not trust-
ing themselves to speak till some one
should explain. Then William Robert-
son, M. D., came to the rescue.
"Judge," he began, "and doctor, we,
as faithful Twenty-fivers, are follow-
ing Instructions. The other evening
you, doctor, bade us establish homes of
our own with a Westerville girl in
each. You, judge, with the others,
pledged us your support and consent.
I have also the consent of your daugh-
ter, whom I have wanted since we
were in college together. May I have
her soon?" Then, before the judge
could reply, Hardy addressed the doo-
tor:
"Doctor, redeem your word to sanc-
tion with your fatherly consent any
attempt of mine to marry a Wester-
ville girl. I have been among you six
months-six minutes was enough to

: INTERVENTION j

By A. M. Davies Ogden

Miss Belinda Tremayne, aetat, seven
and one-half years, regarded her new
treasure with a slow, contemplative
gaze. A brief past, checkered by the
speedy demise of various cherished
chickens, goldfish and birds, had ren-
dered her sjcewhat skeptical as to the
value of birds, but this puppy looked
encouragingly healthy.
"I expect you might live as long as
ten years," she s1"'culated, "and by
then I shall probably be marri'd and
not miss you if anything did happen."
At which satisfactory conclusion she
yielded to her surging affection and
hugged the puppy close, an attention
which he returned by a series of damp
kisses from a small red tongue.
But there was still Aunt Lillian to be
reckoned with. Aunt Lillian (i1 noi
like dogs. In fact, Belinda was not
sure that she had dlsCovered what
Aunt Lillian did like, and Miss Fer-
rars herself was beginning to have
doubts on the subject. When her sis-
ter's health had necessitated a sudden
trip to Europe Miss Ferrars had eager-
ly offered to take charge of Belinda.
The results had been startling. Miss
Ferrars, filled with conscientious en-.
thusiasm, set herself to the task of in-
culcating the precepts of wisdom into
the youthful mind, but Bellnln, placid,
unmoved, pursued an imnipi essed
course. Miss Ferrars sighed. She
bad Imagined children as clean faced.
curly haired Infants with gentle, obedi-
ent ways. Belinda was rarely clean;
no amount of twisting could persuade
a curl into 'these unruly locks. Miss
Ferrars began to wonder whether she
had been wise to assume this respon-
sibility. She admitted to herself that
she did not in the least understand the
child, but she loved her, Which helped
a lot, even If Miss Ferrars did not
know It.
Now, daintily fresh and sweet in the
crispest of white muslins, Miss Ferrars
qat on the wide, cool veranda, embroid-
ering some pretty trifle. The sudden
apparition of a shaggy, panting puppy
'n her lap caused her to em!t a little
*hriek. Then her eyes met Belinda's
earnest face.
"It's my new puppy," exclaimed Be-
linda. "I love him a lot, and he loves
'ne. He will love you, too." she added
generou!'y. Miss Ferrars hesitated.
"But, Bel'nda"- Beliiud.'s lip began
to tremble: a misty film e'rept over her
eyes. Miss Ferrars' heart so.tonpd.
"Well," she relented, "if he is kept
'n the stable, perhaps- Why, Belin-
'la"-struck by a new thought-"where
did you get him?"
Belinda waved a vanoe arm. "Over
there." she observed impo'tsntly. "A
ma.p gave him to me. He' said his
*name was Frank. so thbt'. the puppy's
name. I named him for him."
"What!" eried Miss Ferrar. She
had flushed a deep, lovely pink; then
the color had faded. Frank! He was
back, then. With a quick movement
she Imshed the puppy from her lap.
How had he dared speak to the child?
Of course she must not allow Belinda
to keep his dog. Yet, to break her
word-a thing against all her theories
of upbringing! A troubled frown puck-
ered her white forehead.
"You i"y ke-"p the p'i'py," shede
dared relucitanti',- "'br "je-'isr not
come near the house. D' you under-
stand, Belinda?
And Belinda'nodded a bl!wful "Yes."
From that day the two were insep-
arable. If Miss Ferrars had hoped


'Bill, we can go about three day*
on nothing, and then I shall have to eat
you.'
'All right, old ship,' says he, and
there was nothing more to be said
about it. F6ur days passed, and then
I says to Bill:
'Stand up and see if there's a sail
in sight.'
'Nary a sail,' says he, after looking
around.
'Then I've got to eat you.'
'All right, old ship, but let me tell
you that I have just taken a big dose
of poison, and If you eat me you won't
be long arter me.' "
"And was it so?" was asked of Bill's
friend.
"It was so, sir, and what does Bill
do but swell up and die and fall over-
board and leave me to go on suffering
for four days more before a bark sight-
ed and picked me up. Would you have
believed there was as mean a man in
all this world ?"-Detroit Tribune.
Took It Like a sport.
"Is there a chance for me, Gladys?"
"There Is, George-one in a million."
George was a young man of some
experience.
"That's too long a shot," he ex-
plained, picking up his hat.-Chicago


for some one with who:ui sh'. could
cousult. uit imaninma was~ nway off
across the ocean, and Frank. though
strviing his -vst to console. was noi
use av adviser And then suddenly
Belinda gasped under the force of a
daring Insplrtilon.
Ii' -lie would d till ihat unec young man
wn ha b gaiv.'n her Frank- If she could
talk things over with him! The nmem-
ory of the merry blue eyes. the kindly
smile, still dwelt In the child's grateful
little heart, though since that day she
had been forbidden to go near the
gate, and consequently had seen him
no more. He could not live very fur
away. And lie would help, she felt
sure. To think, with Belinda, was to,
act. A moment later he was tramping
S-ttolong lwe a legatee; Jbe-'
would find him.
Up at the house Miss Ferrara wait-
ed. Where could Belinda be? The
chlld's supper hour came and went; the
slow shadows began to darken. Miss
Ferrars grew alarmed; It was not like
Belinda to be late for meals.
Hastily catching up a lace scarf the
girl hurried toward the gate, some in-
stinct warning her whither the little
truant had fled. On the path just
across the road lay a crumpled, much
soiled -handkerchief. With quickening
heart beats Miss Ferrars ran down the
path. Had Belinda gone all alone in-
to the 'oods? A little sob forced its
way out Belinda, oh, Belinda!
Round the turn in the path came the
mound of a clear, mellow whistle, fol-
lowed by a tall, straight limbed young
fellow, at the sight of whom Iisa Fer-
rars felt for an instant as if all the
blood In. her body had rushed to her
heart. Then all at once a strange feel-
ing of security, of content, seemed to
envelop her. He was there; he would
make everything all right. The young
man came hastily forward.
"Lillian!" he exclaimed, then more
formally, "Miss Ferrars."
Miss Ferrars held out two appealing
little hands.
"Belinda," she gasped. "Belinda.
She is lost."
"Lost?" echoed Halstead, puzzled.
"Oh, the little girl, you mean. She
can't be very far away," consolingly.
"Come along; we'll find her."
But as they hastened down the path
Halstead was not thinking of the child.
A sudden glad tide of exultation was
racing through his veins. She had
spoken to him. She had turned to him
for help. He was not utterly beyond
forgiveness then. How white Lillian
looked! Was it all distress over the
loss of Del;.ida? Or could it be tint
shI., too, regretttb thtr quartirel-that
useless, senseless quarrel? Hlie ope 1
"Lilian," he began eagerly, but the
girl held up a warning finger.
"Hush! Don't; I hear a noise," she
breathed.
There was a faint yap in the bushes,
a subdued bark. Halstead plunged in-
to the green to return with Belinda, a
warm, sleepy Belinda, high on his
shoulder, while Frank trotted close
behind. Miss Ferrars sprang forward.
"Oh, Belinda, dear, how could you
run off and frighten poor auntie so?"
she asked tenderly. Belinda opened a
drowsy eye.
"I-I wanted to find him," she ex-
plained, "bi:-but it was a long way,
and I got ,'tired. I wanted to ask
him why you cried when you patted
Fwank," she went on earnestly.
"Don't you really like Fwank? I-I
didn't like to fink that you didn't weal-
ly like him just a little bit"-wistfully.
"Don't you, auntie?"
"Don't you?" repeated the man, and
his tone sounded queer and unsteady.
"Can't you? For-for he cares so much
for you."
Miss Ferrars, a great shy happiness
dawning in her eyes, bent over Be-
linda.
"Indeed, I-I do like Frank," she con-
fessed. "I-I always have, though I-I
didn't know it. I-I care very much,

Belinda, with a satisfied sigh, snug-
gled down on the broad shoulder.
"I knew if I could only find my man
it would be all right," she murmured
contentedly. "Ask him to take us

Dodola and Rain.
The Servian peasants have a curious
old ceremony of Invoking rain which
they carry out during dry weather.
The women of the village dress a girl
in leaves and grass from head to foot
and lead her from house to house. At
each door the occupant pours a bucket-
ful of water over her head, while her
companions, who are mostly girls of
her own age, chant prayers for the
wished for showers. Invisible clouds
of rain are believed by the peasants to
follow the girl, whom they name "Do-
dola," and to refresh the fields and
vineyards.

It Pays to Advertise.
An Oklahoma girl advertised for a
husband and got him. The' total ex-
pense for advertising, wedding outfit,
etc., was $11. lie died within a year,
leaving her an insurance policy of
$10,000. And yet some people claim
that it doesn't pay to advertise.-

satisfaction in the short time, he was
pressed by his employers for an ex-

"'I had held this place only three
days when a well known individual
came to see iue and, after pledging my

$10,000 to do a certain thing that would

Still I refused with scumorn.
'Last week the well known individ-

that the human Intellect as at present
constituted can offer no solution. The
greatest mind that this world has yet
produced-the mind that systematized
all human knowledge, that revolhitioniz-
ed modern science, that dissipated ma-
terialism forever, that revealed to us
the ghostly unity of all existence, that
re-established all ethics upon an Im-
mutable and eternal foundation-the
mind that could expound with' equal
lucidity and by the same universal

S9ea robins feed on small crabs, fish,
shrimps a nd other dimiluutive animals
which they tlndamong the loose stones.
In Europe all the gurnard family of
fishes arc eagerly sought, as they find
a ready sale In the fish market. They
attain a length of two feet and a
weight of eleven pounds. Our species
of the sea robin, a cousin to the Euro-
pean variety, Is found on our northern
coast and is taken in great numbers
in the pound nets along Vineyard sound,
where they spawn during the summer
months.
They are much esteemed for the
table, being one of the most delicate
of the edible fishes. The flesh is firm,
snow white and hard to distinguslah
from that of the kingfish. Thie Amer-
ican sea robins are fifteen to eighteen
inches long and weigh from one and
one-fourth to two pounds. When taken
from the water they grunt quite loudly
and if placed on the ground give a
little hop forward of a few inches,
grunting as they do so. This grunting
sound can tie heard quite plainly If
one is in a boat lying quietly In shal-
low water near where they are.
The head is sheathed with bony
plates and armed with sharp points,
which are rather hard to distinguish
at first, as they lie quite flat against it.
When caught they erect all their splues
and inflict very painful, wounds on
lilj,- who try to handle them. The
pectoral tins are a little more than half
as liing as the body and may be ex-
tended like a fan when in use or fold-
ed qui l close together when onu the,

buin rtr'i. fish.
'r,- '.iy< of the i (.iil 1may also be

Can.
The color of this poe,,lar fish Is a
brownish yellow over the back and
sides and cream white below. The
pevtordj fins are deep oriuge color,
with a blackish i:mrkinig toward the
tips, crossed all over with little dark
brown lines and edged with light yel-.
low orange color. The lower jaw Is
a beautiful turquoise blue, edged with
a vein of brassy yellow.-St. Nicholas.

Credit and Debit.
"Yes," said Slopay, "the suit fits me

to open accounts with some of the

organized effort is made to turn him
out he climbs up on to the roof of his
domicile and throws hives of bees
at the invaders. When an Englishman

CARTS IN SCOTLAND.
They Were a Cause of Wonder In
the Eighteenth Century.
In Scotland at the beginning of the
eighteenth century produce was car-
ried in sacks on horseback or on
sledges, or-later in the century-on
tumbrels, which were sledges on "tum-
bling" wheels of solid wood with wood-
en axletrees, all revolving together.
These machines were often so small
that in a narrow passage the carter
could lift them bodily, for they held
little more than a wheelbarrow. They
bad wheels a foot and a half in diam-
eter, made of three pieces of wood
pinned together like a butter firkin
and which quickly wore out and be-
came utterly shapeless, so that a load
of 600 pounds was enormous for the
dwarfish animals to drag. Yet even
such vehicles were triumphs of civili-
zation when they came into use when
the century was young.,
Carts are a later invention still, and
when one, In 1723, first carried Its tiny
load of coals from East Kilbrlde to
Cambuslang, "crowds of people," It Is
reported, "went to see the wonderful
machine. They looked with surprise
and returned with astonishment." In
many parts of the lowlands they were
not in ordinary use, even till 1760,
while In the northern districts sledges
or creels on the backs of women were
chiefly employed to the end of the cen-
tury. The wretched condition of the
roads was the chief cause of the re-
luctant adoption of carts.
In the driest weather the roads were
unfit for carriages and in wet weather
almost impassable, even for horses-
deep In ruts of mire, covered with
stones, winding up heights and down
hills to avoid swamps and bogs. It
was tWs precarious state of the roads
which obliged judges to ride on cir-
cuit, and a practice began as a physic-
al necessity was retained as a dignified
habit, so that in 1744 Lord Dun re-
signed. his judgeship because he was
no longer able to "ride on circuit."-

it was L.virliblv likr picking off a man.

THERE IS MONEY IN

GROWING GINSENG.
Pi of. Howard of the Missouri State Agricultural College says: "I ad-
vise American farmers to cultivate Ginseng. Big profits are realized. It
is a hardy plant and is easily grown." A bulletin issued by the Pennsyl-
vania State College in part says: "Tire supply of native Ginseng root is
rapidly diminishing, and the ptice per pound is correspondingly increasing,
while the constant demand for the drug in China stands as a guarantee of a
a steady market for Ginseng in the future." Consul General Rub!ee of
Hong Kong says in the U. S. Consular Reports: "The sale of Ginseng root
grown iu America is very large here and the dema':d is so great that much
more coulil be disposed of advantageously. The root is as indispensable to
the lonr hundred million Chinese as is their rice."
Ginseng is a staple on the market .the same as corn, wheat and cot-
ton. The present market police varies from $6.00 to $8 50 per pound,
while the oast of producing is less than $1.50. It is easy to grow and re-
quires veiy little ground. An acre of matureno Gineng is worth $40,000.
There is room in one's garden to grow seven al Ihun red dollars worth each
year. The plant thrives throat ghouit the United States and Canad in allny
soil or elim'Ute that will grow garden vegetables. We sell roots and seeds
for planting purposes and can show you how to make money growing Gin-
seng. There are two planting seasons, sp ing and fall Wi'th each order
we give you funl instructions how to plant hnd c-ure for thei gar",en. You
can get.a good start in the business for a small anllay and soon have a nice
income. Send a two cent stamp today for literature telling all about this
wonderful industry.

The Pensions of Europe.
A traveler who has toured Europe
with his wife at $4 a daiy for the two
declares that the pensions are the base
of his cheap travel. In every conti-
nental city visited they easily found
delightful pensions at $1.20 a day each.
The pensions have not the style and
display of the hotels, but they have all
the comfort and the servants' fees are
fewer and smaller. Breakfast includes
bread and coffee, nothing more.
Luncheon and dinner are course meals,
very much alike. Some one in the house
always speaks English.

To Tell a Horse's Age.
The age of a horse cannot always be
told by looking at Its teeth. After the
eighth year the horse has no more new
teeth, so that this method is useless for
a horse which is more than eight years
old. As soon as the set of teeth is
complete, however, a wrinkle begins
to appear on the edge of the lower eye-
lid, and another wrinkle is added each
year, so that to get at the age of a
horse more than eight years old you
must count the teeth plus the wrinkles.

SThe surgeon'a Mlghtnmare.
Two patients who called in company
upon a noted surgeon found him be-
moaning a twinge of pain in his right
forefinger. The callers smiled.
"Great Scott, doctor," exclaimed one,
"you don't mean to say that a pain in
the finger bothers a man so used to
scenes of suffering as yourself!"
"It certainly does," the surgeon an-
swered, with a worried look. "How
do I know that it isn't the first symp-
tom of blood poisoning? That is the
nightmare of the surgeon. No matter
how careful he may be, he is liable to
conlTact poisoning in operating, and
that kind of poisoning is of the most
virulent type. Any time a surgeon is
complaining about a pain In the hand
sympathize with him, for he Is doing
some hard guessing." Philadelphia

-. A Birth Wateh.
When a child Is born In certain Eng-
lish towns there is a race for the
health department, especially If the
event has occurred in the poorer dis-
trict The reason for the haste Is not
a desire to see that the record of vital
statistics Is properly kept, but because
there Is a reward of a shilling to the
one who is first to notify the health
officer, provided this notification Is giv--
en within forty-eight hours. As soon
as the tip is received the mother Is vis.
cited and given a printed slip with di-
rections as to the best means of car-
ing for the child, and the officer who
makes the visit Is expected to see that
the directIns are clearly understood.

Antiquity of Sugar.
The first mention of sugar seems to
have been made by Pliny more than
1,80 years ago, who traces it to Ara-
bia and gives the preference to Indian
sugar, which he speaks of as "honey
found in canes." Statius in his de-
scription of the Saturnalia says that
among the food which the Emperor
Domitian made the people at those
noisy festivals scramble for was a
sweet substance obtained from Ara-
bian canes. Other classical writers of
about the same period describe it also
as a kind of honey found in canes and
not made by bees. Strabo adds that in
a solid state it resembles salt. The
sugar cane was introduced into Sicily
In 1148 and soon afterward into Spain.
Thence sixty years later it was taken.
to tho West Indies, and at the end of
the eighteenth century Jamaica alone
produced quite 15.000 tons a year.

Four Days

By Lowell Otus Rlees

Copyright, 1905, by Lowell Otus Reese

Our acquaintance began in a manner
most unique.
High up on the canyon wall was a
rock, shaded by a live oak. For a
Inonth it had been my custom to sit
upon this rock through the warmest
part of the day sketching. I had es-
tablished possession by right of pre-
emption.
So it came in the nature of a shock
when I climbed to my usual vantage
point and found ensconced in my fa-
vorite position on my rock a girl.
I was indignant, also disappointed.
I felt much as Izaak Walton might
have felt when he found an interloper
fishing his favorite pool. This was a
most presumptuous young person.
"Ahem!" I remarked.
She half turned and made a slight
bow.
"The view is something tremendous
from here," I observed further.
"Very," she agreed.
"I come here every day," I panted as
I .sat down ounventionally near. '"I
have done so for a month."
"Oh, perhaps you would rather I"-
"By no means!" I exclaimed. "The
view is much better"-
She froze me; then she laughed. We
vere friends by the divine instinct
which tells unerringly whom we are
going to like or hate.
.1 was glad she had jumped my claim,
for she was very pretty, and her eyes
were the kind that send a thrill
through your whole being, and you
wonder if you are going to live through
it.
That was the first day.
C C
It was three days after.
"Why didn't you wait for me?" I
asked as I climbed over the rock and
threw myself down beside her.
She opened her brown eyes ,wide in a
wonderful assumption of surprise.
"How 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 the combined police forces of
two continents could have kept me
away! This girl must be disciplined.
"Of course you know," I said confi-
dently.
She looked at me, and I felt my heart
turn to water. Still I persisted, where
a wise man would have turned the con-
versation swiftly to the weather or the
view. "You knew I'd been coming ev-
ery 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,"
she said.
I sprang to my feet in fright. "Don't!"
I pleaded. "I want yon to stay! I"-
She kept her face averted,' though I
could see that her cheeks were hot and
flushed. "Goodby," she said, and was
gone.
The sun suddenly turned to ink.
Where a moment before had been a
bright scene spreading away below me
was a howling wilderness, and I was
tempted to jump off the rock and butt
my empty head against the river bed
300 feet below. I longed to be a boy
again that I might go down and fight
the first kid I ran "Across.
This was the second day,


C


* C C


The next Saturday night there was a
quiet dance in the assembly room of
this famous resort between the high
walls of the Matilija canyon. I saw my
chance to redeem myself. I would
dance with her and make my peace
while she was so close she would be
compelled to listen, for all the week she
had seemed unaware of my existence.
It was an Informal affair-a country
dance, sans cards and ceremony. I ap-
prolached the group where Miss Win-
s.ru was chatting brightly with a golf
stocking Englishman and a Boston
magnate. Miss Winston saw me com-
ing-I knew she did. Spe looked
through and beyond-far beyond me. 1
felt like a perambulating piece of thin
gla"s which a breath of hers might
shatter.
I stopped suddenly. Of course that
was it! We had not been properly
"presented." What a chump I was. I
sought diligently for Bobby Jelinski,
who knew everybody. I didn't find him.
The hand struck up, and I saw her go
gliding 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
,lance from. hber. I managed to say a
few words while sheet was w iitng for
i MeXica.n mantilli:. I gatlJhred that it
was a fine night and that she had en-
joyed her dance Immensely, and. yes,
California moonlight was far superior
to anything she had ever seeu, and then
he was gone, with the Englishman
pompously escorting her.
"What's the matter with you any-
way?" demanded Bobby JTlinski. who
at the eleventh hour had presented
mne.
"Bobby," I said savagely, "will you
kindly go to blazes a few times and
stay there?" *
And this was the third day.
C *
A month had passed. The season
wY.as drawing to a close. I had made
no progress. Miss Winston met me on
the ground of easy comradeship whicb
obtained at the Springs, where every-
body was dependent upon everybody
else for companionship and entertain-
m'net, but the sweet familiarity which
oad come so naturally those first three
days upon the rock seemed, viewed in
the light of the present situation, as
a 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 aimlessly among the
live oaks on the opposite -sie4e Iie
canyon when, happening to glance
across, I saw the flutter of a skirt on
the trail leading up to the rock. I drew
out my feld. glasses and trained ..therm


ni "the "fluire a-'mi ,ithg the familiar
trail. It was she: I watched her climb-
Ing with furtive downward glances
The 1ny1t'ry as solved at last. Reg-
ularly fil rleh4e unhappy days I had
been missing her. She must have been
goiig up th.-i all itheoe days, waiting
always for me to come down.
Biluil 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 her offense!
All this time I was plunging across
the canyon and up the trail. I would
show her just how 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 was tired any-
way. I sat down in the shadow of a
great rock which projected from the
hillside. I lit my pipe and wondered
why minutes didn't pass more swiftly.
Certainly she had been there ages. I
put my pipe away. And then-
There she stood in the trail, looking
at me with a gleam In her eyes which
confused me, for I didn't know what
It meant. I had caught it from time
to time all along the way of tribulation
I had traveled for over a month.
"'Why didn't you come up, Mr.
Blake?" she inquired. "The view was
excellent today."
Wa s she lmeking me? I started to
say sonwthl g when from above came
a terri roar., udl g'ran'lg up I saw
a huftl .,0o s by some care-
less climber no doubt, plunging down
the -loupl. Miss Winston saw it com-
ing and gave a stifled cry, which was
inotbered 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 e pTl)ion. Then all was still.
I turned to the figure in my arm;i.
She was or-''up. ing exactly the saimei
position as when I flung her behind the
ledge. with her head lu 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 raise.i her face, but her eyes
were averted. She peered over my
shoulder at the depths below. "Is-is it
conilnig baqk, I wonder"- she began,
and the words were stifled, for my soul
was suddenly illumined 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
long.
And that was the fourth day.

ordinary "cold" is. pretty well under,

erally conceded that when circulatory

SUMMER

The barbaric red of the parasol which
she presently unfurled when with a
sort of aimless reluctance she had
passed down the steps and out Into the
September sunshine formed a vivid
background for the small, well set
hend and a face which was at once hu-
morous and quizzical, as If the pageant
of life had raised in her an eternal
question and an accompanying smile.
At the distance of a half bloc 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

lidity and double chins might have
been heard discussing her case.

bent upon her -embroidery hoop she
caused a strange floral piece to bloom
upon a piece of white linen. "She's
getting on. Let me see. She was in
the next class to me at Mime. Dore's,
and Harold will be fourteen next Oc-
tober." Harold was her eldest child-
one of those cantankerous pegs by
which matrous keep tab on the age of
their unmarried friends.
"She must be nearly thirty-five If
she's a day," the -speaker concluded
after a brief pause, in which she de-
bated with herself what would be the
proper shade of green to use for
maidenhair fern. "Her time is grow-
ing short."
Her companion, engaged in a similar
employment, looked meditatively off
over the smooth shaven lawn which
seemed to share her own domestic
placidity.
"Thirty-four, I think," she announced
in a voice whose preoccupation sug-
gested that she had been rummaging
In that prehl-torlic past which contain-
ed neither husband nor babies. "Thir-
ty-four, I'm pretty sure. Still, she cer-
tainly doesn't look It, and she's always
had plenty of attention."
In the absorbing Interest of the flow-
ers they were fashionuin the subject
was dropped, but the thought wave
then started reached Elizabeth Ware
herself later on.
It was a wnndeprfl day, full of mel-


low, nmatire.


Indescribable harm.

,h',ught to herself, "no longer dazzling
and shriveling. but flooding the world

She thought of her school friends wrap

yes, and silt down "bl)y 'the roadslde ol

So far as she knew all were mildly
happy. But beside them she felt ridir
ulously young and joyous. A smile<
touched her lips as Fhe reflected thal
It was with lHarold, the fourteen-year
old, that she preferred to walk an'
talk. rather than with Harold's plumi
and settled milmma.
Then she reviewed the thirty-fiv,

she proceeded to explain that bar li

"You seem to pass the waItirg wi'.h

he laughed-"that is, if one may judge

"You are married, of course?" sh
questioned after she had assured hir'

with blithe gayety.
"Yet I suppose we are the ones ou0

the mock grave answer. Then in a

what you're going through again and

wish the word 'aunt' were blotted out

On and on they walked, talking with
undiminished interest. As he remark-

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-
called her as the best of comrades-a
girl with no nonsense about her. But
lie could not remember that in the
exuberant days of his youth, when lihe
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, lie 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 v.-whom it would be a gen-
tle, half sad pleasure to owe vi'n. if
only to Ix a S1.11 l -,1 ,. :. '-In to
mea-inur, how r;,r 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 In all its amazing cer-
tainty his manner grew abstracted,
Then he became alert with a sudden
purpose. With something of his old
impetuosity he reasoned that here was
a matter that had been deferred long
enough.
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 such well-but one
Elizabeth.
"It isn't decent for a woman of your
age to be husbandless," was his scorn-
ful way of beginning the attack.
"Oh, I don't know!" was that lady's
easy rejoinder. "We spinsters have
our uses. Think how we serve to point
morals. Why, I'.ye.no doubt that I my-

self have been the object lesson that
has saved more than one sweet young
thing from celibacy. I can just imag-
ine a mother saying, 'You'd better not
be too particular or you'll be an old
maid like Beth Ware!"'
IHe grinned into the dark, debonair
face for a moment and then scowled
portentously.
"You've had your own way too long,
young lady! What you nee is the sub-
duing effect of masculine guidance, and
frankly I should like the post.
"Remember, you let me go away once
before," he went on in an aggrieved
tone, seeing that she was about to pro-
.est. "Of course you did. If you had
been the right sort of a girl, wouldn't
you have taught me that I loved you
even then? "
She laughed outright.
"I happen to remember that you
were head over heels in love with Har-
old's mamma about that time," she
Jeered. "Anyway, we're too ol'd for
sentiment. Our spring and summer
ire over."
"Yes, they are," he admitted, with
gravity. "But this love of ours"-his
tone rang with the mastery of one who
is sure-"we'll call it I'ndian summer."

Boston's Cx'ooked Streets.
Boston has had 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 talls
to which he was clinging. Early last
century a Frenchman gave an interpre-
tation of the deviousness of the high-
ways which is both pleasant and pa--
triotit. It Is found In a book called "A
Trip to Boston," by E. C. 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 la
pleasing. To a stranger it la a per-
petual surprise."
Many years ago the Marquis of
Chatelot visited Boston.
"Marquis," said an apologetic citizen,
"you will find Boston streets very
crooked. They turn and twist in ev-
ery direction."
"Ah. ver' good, ver' good," replied
the courteous nobleman. "It show de
liberte."

Rapid Fire Jutisee.
Yankee dispatch characterizes the
court rulings of a Toronto magistrate,
of whom John Foster Fraser tells in
his book, "Canada as It Is." The mag-
Istrate, who is reported to have got
through with forty cases In forty misl
-utes, was once asked how he managed
it. "You must have some system," was
the suggestion.
"I never allow a point of law to be
raised," was the magistrate's prompt
reply. "This Is a court of Justice, not
a court of law.
"Not so very long ago a young at-
torney wanted to quote law agaIst
my sending his man down for ixt
months. He wanted to quote Mathews,
I think.
"'Well,' said I, 'Mathews may be a
great authority on law, but I guess he
hasn't as much authority as I have
In this court. Your man goes down
for six months.'"
CIvillzatiuon and tie Kaffir.
On bare feet, of which the skin grew
so tough as to enable him to run over
the sharpest rocks without flinching,
the old Kafoir could easily walk, as
fast as a horse trots, fifty miles a day.
The Kaffir who still goes barefoot can
do so today. He used likewise to be
able to get a light-the "boy" who ia
constantly bothering one now for
matches-by rubbing two sticks to-
gether. Now he is as helpless In the
Lark aa ourselves-Pall alU1 Gazette.
