The vote on United S, ates Sena-
tor with every precinct in the state
heard from, as reported by the
Times-Union, gives ex-Governor
Broward just three more votes
than Senator Taliaferro.
This remarkably close vote must
be decided in the primary of
June 7.
With no prejudice against Mr.
Broward, the Buoy hopes to see
Mr. Taliaferro victorious, because
his record shows that he has done
good work for his state, and espe-
cially should the voters of Wash-
i..gton and Calhoun counties sup-
port him, for without his influence
and experience the improvements
prayed for by the St. Andrews and
Apalachicola river country would
not have received favorable action
by congress, and that same expe-
rience will give to this section an
advantage that no new man can

Marrying For Votes.
Marrying for votes was a device of
old time Brtiheb electiop agents. As
the law stood before the reform act
of 182 widows of freemen on marry-
ing again made their second husmands
freemen and therefore voters. At
election tifaes widows were conse-
quently paid handsomely to go through
a formal marriage with a voteless
bachelor, who~ for a consideration,
similarly agreed to support the candi-
date. The pair were married, the man
voted according to Instructions, and
then he and his wife, standing on
either side of a tombstone, said,
"Death us do part." With this literal
fulfillment of the matrimonial vow.
they regarded their marriage dlssolv-
ed. At the last election I Brisatol be-

"Mme. Chapellier,"
t "Yes,"
"His excellence has directed me to
admit you as soon as you called."
The attendant led the way to the
private office of the minister of foreign
affairs, opened the door and announced:
"Mme. ChapeUlerr'
"The government," said the minister,
"appreciating your past services, is de-
irous of adding to the amounts al-
ready paid you another 50,000 francs."
"And I doubt not the government ex-
pects me to add to my past services a
corresponding amount."
"Can you leave for London tonight?"
"I can go anywhere at any time."
"Very well. I will explain."
The minister cast a look abont the
room, habitual with him before enter-
Ing upon a matter involving secrecy,
leaned forward in his chair and spoke
in a low tone.
"The British government has made a
treaty with the ambassador of the e rb-
Ume port at London by which the eul-
tan grants valuable concessions to
Great Britain. We have been iegotiat-
ing with the sultan's ambassador here
to Paris for these same privilege but
we are too late.
"Sir Bradford Cbicbeeter. one of the
younger members of the British diplo-
matic corps, has ennaged pausaige by
sea for Constantlnoplo in a ship sail-
ing on the 14th. He will carry with
him the Udittih-Turk:hb Urenty for sig-
nature at the Turkish foreign ofilll. It
is ouh" purpi.,* to dtclay him elth rir al
starting or on the way."
Mine. Chapellier reached Iondon the
neft morning and reported in person
to Baron la Brun the French minister.
'*o order to assist you," he said, "I
give a dinner this evening at which
Sir Bradford COlcbester will be pres-
ent. Have you costumes ?
6"Iverything except appropriate jew-
els. I shall personate a wealthy Amer-
ican widow-Mrs. Worthington Wood."
"Where shall I send them?"
"No. Portman square."
"Very well. I shall expect you
at 8"
At the dinner given at the French
embassy Mrs. Worthington Wood, who,
though born of French parents, had
lived the first fifteen years of her
life in America, was taken In to din-
ner by Sir Bradford Chichester. She
knew that his family, though ancient,
were not rich and that he would glad-
ly take a wealthy wife. She manifest.
ed so much interest in seeing his coun-
try seat, the Dunes, on the Irish chan-
nel and some 200 miles from London,
that he, thinking to benefit in the
matter of a courtship-should he deem
such desirable-arranged a house party
to go there to remain till the 13th, when
he must return to the city to be ready
to sail on the 14th. Of course Mrs.
Wood was invited.
The next day a small number of
guests assembled at the Dunes. It
was winter, but the house was cheer-
fully lighted and logs blazed on every
hearth. Sir Bradford devoted himself
to the young widow. There are wom-
en who possess the knack of carrying
an Impressible man quickly off his feet
Such was Mrs. Worthington Wood.
She administered, so to speak, a love
potion. There was in it a reason-to
cause her victim to feel that he could
never aspire to possess her. Eyes that
shot a spark to kindle passion, feigned
innocence to excite reverence.
Sir Bradford, Mrs. Wood and sev-
eral others of the house party had gone
up from London on the same train and
In the same compartment. Mrs. Wood
noticed that her host carried a leather
hand bag that he never lost sight of.
If he left the train for a moment at a
station he took the bag with him; if
he went Into the smoking compart-
ment to enjoy a cigar the hand bag
went with him.
Mrs. Wood also noticed that when
he entered the family equipage to be
driven to his home, while he gave up
his rugs, umbrella and other such be
longings to the servants, he held on
to the satchel. She deemed it neces-
sary to her plans to know where the
hand bag would be deposited. But as
soon as the host entered the house,
leaving his guests to be shown to their I
rooms by the housekeeper, be dtiap-
peared. When Mrs. Wood next saw
hint the satchel was not with him.
"I have brought with me," she said
to him, "a few of my finest jewel,
not daring to leave them In London,
Have you a safe in the house?"
"Certainly," he said. "One moment.
I will call the housekeeper.- The safe

"I never allow my sate to be opened

He was awakened by his valet bring-
ing hot water. After a glance at the
safe, which showed no evidence of
having been tampered with, he arose,
Dressed and went down to breakfast.
A maid approached him and said:
"I took the hot water to Mrs. Wood,

knocked, and I went tn BShe isn't
Sir Bradford blanched. Like ligt-
ning the thought flashed through his
brain that the key of his safe had gone
with her. Then he saw that be was
ruined. Be was to sail that afternoon
for Constantinople. The only way to
get the treaty was to break into his
afe. But it was a new and perfect
one, put in since he had entered the
diplomatic service. Only in London I
could men be found of sufficient skill
t0 do the work, and London was 200 1
miles away. He put his hand to his
head, staggered up to his room and
ocked himself in.

Twenty-four hours later the minister
if foreign affairs In Paris received the
ard of Mme. Chapellier. He direct-
d that she be at once admitted.
"Well?" he said.

The words were scarcely out of his
mouth when I felt a faint tick on the t
bowl of the pipe, heard the crack of a p!
gun and knew that a bullet had passed PI
through the pipe. t(

about to rise. "Your pipe won't draw tl

out all over me. Nevertheless I put fl
up a pretty good front. I sat with
comparativee composure, occasionally bi
getting a faint cloud of tobacco smoke P(

There was a faint reproach to the
glance she gave him and her tone.
"Pardon me," be sl.. "I would

"You would not trust?'"
"Oertainly, I would trust you both,
but there is property in that safe that
doesn't belong to me. Would I be jus-
tified in permitting any one. however
trustworthy, to go in there?'
His tone was growing more decided.
Interests of state were asworting them

is my box. I intru.-t it to your care."

outdone in a matter or coua-ideuce. but
he resisted it Takiin ti ) box. In
which there were oi.i., ,' I gems f,'r
informal occasions, he weut away aud
placed it in his safe.
The next evening at dinner the young
widow was entrancing. She seemed
to be in a light, happy mood. She
told the story of how the host had re-
fused to permit her to visit his safe
without his being present and set all
the guests laughing by Its humorous
telling. The host laughed with the
rest and had he not been cooling un-
der a spell that would have ended the
matter. As it was he winced. There
was underneath Mrs. Wood's humor
a faint suspicion of ridicule. He tried
to excuse himself, but only got tangled
in his own excuses.
"Don't you think." said the lady to
the others, "that Sir Bradford owes
me some separation?"
All banteringly agreed that hedld.
"Well this is the last night of our
visit here. Let him intrust me with
the key of his safe till tomorrow morn-
All declared that such an act would
not necessarily be showing any con-
fidence whatever. But the widow In-
sisted that it would satisfy her, and
she smilingly held out her hand for
the key.
The thought flashed through SLr
Bradford's head that the safe, being
in his own room. would be under his
control through the ilght. There was
a pretty woman smiling at itm, daring
him--a woman with whom he was
fascinated and whom be thought it
advantageous to marry. Nevertheless
he did not consent Then suddenlyy
there come a flash from the woman's
eyes, a haughty look as it she deemed
such a denial of confidence Insulting.
Sir Bradford put his hand in his pocket
and tossed the key on the table be-
fore her.
Amid a burst of laughter she seized
It and placed it in her corsage.

to an impulse than he regretted his
act. A man under a woman's spell is
Itable to rush from one extreme to an-
other. One moment he trusts her Im-
plicitly; the next he fears that he has
fallen Into the tolls of a devil. At any
rate, such was the fear of Sir Brad-
ford. Never for a moment during the
evening did he leave the side of the
woman who possessed the key of his
safe-the safe where was deposited
that which If it passed into the pos-
session of another would ruin him. If
he turned away from her for a mo-
went it was that she should not see
the expression on his face when he
cursed himself for a fool
The widow rallied him continually.
"Aren't you going to give me one mo-
ment alone?" "Be comforted! I am
uot in the habit of visiting any but
my own room when I visit" "Will
you sleep with a revolver under your
pillow tonight?" These were some of
the banterings she gave him, much to
the amusement of the guests. At mid-
night, when the party broke up, she
had made no move. She rose with
the others and went up to her room.
The moment Sir Bradford heard her
door close he went up to his own
apartment With his eyes fixed on his
safe he gave himself up to tumultuous
musing. It contained his possible ruin,
and the key was in the possession of
a woman he had known but a few
"Pooh, pooh! What an assI She
only did it to bedevil me. Nonsense!
I. have a revolver under my pillow,
and itf any one should come in here
tonlght-- More nonsense Who's to
come?" Thus he tried to dismiss the
matter from his mind. But, oh, if he
only had the key!
He went to bed and tried to sleep.
Slumber would not come. Fancying
he heard a movement in his room, he
arose and struck a light. He was
ashamed of himself for doing so, but
left it burning. This made him feel a
trifle more comfortable, and toward

"And bow much time do you think
we will gain?"
She handed him an item cut from a
newspaper stating that Sir Bradford
Chichester had sent to London for men
to open his safe; that they had failed
and others more skillful had gone up.
Iie had offered the latter 1.000 if they
would do the job In Ihree hours."
"That will do," said the minister.
"Our treaty is on the way."
He drew her a check for 50,000

The first time I saw Daisy abe was
coming over her father's broad acres
on a horse whose lope was very like a
rocking chair. She was riding strad-
die with divided skirts. No other wo-
man on the ranches thereabout would
ride In any other costume. Barker was
riding beside her, and the two made a
very handsome pair. The brim of his
sombrero was flattened against his
forehead by the wind, a lariat hung at
his saddle bow, and his splendid figure
was revealed by his costume-vi ,
tfannel shirt and trousers, with boots
to his knee.
Daisy had gone out from the east I
with her father, who became a sheep
raiser, and she had become fascinated 1
with ranch life. Unfntuniatly she I
bad conceived a romantic dea of the
genus cowboy, and, Barker being phys-
ically a perfect type, she had persuad- (
ed herself, or, rather, he had persuaded I
ber, that he was just the man for her. t
I say "unfortunately" because he was t
not an educated man and in every way '
beneath her. There were other tea- t
tares about him to render him undo- e
sirable which will appear presently, t
The couple passed me, all of us sa-
luting, though they were unknown to
me, and I rode. on to the ranch house, i
whVbre I Lh:, d Iud' luns with Jojhn Nolan I
with reference to a large purchase of i
wool. While dickering with him on e
his veranda up the roadway came the s
couple I had met and alighted at the
foot of the eteps. Throwing their p
bridle reins over a post, they walked t
up on to the veranda. Then I learned
that Daisy was Nolan's daughter.
As the pair passed Into the house I
noticed a cloud flit over the face of the m
girl's father. I knew by Barker's E
bearing toward her that he was in love
with her. and I judged that his atten-
tions were not relished by Nolan. But I
he said nothing to re then, and we F
went on with our dickering. When I
arose to go he said:
"There's no place about hero in
which you will be comfortable except b
my house. Send for you traps."0
I accepted the invitation, espl)call.
as I was pleased at being under the
same roof with Miss Daisy. I knew g
she had a lover, but my attraction foi0
her did not then go so far as to lutend
to come between them. I merely lied
the idea of being near her during my,e
But I stayed a good while. nnd it was
not very long before she and I each a
made a discovery. I discovered that f
I wanted her, and she discovered th;Ilt
she didn't want BArker. Meanwhile 1 fI
found out something else-that he had s
become frightfully Jclu;s of me, and
if I took her away from him he would t
probably kill me. At first he and I h
spoke to each other when we met el-
ther on the ranch or elsewhere. Then
he only noticed me at the Nolan house. is
I thought it best after awhile to re-
move to the (so called) hotel, a mile E
from Nolan's. If anything happened
between Barker and myself I preferred a
that it should not happen under No ft
plan's roof. So one day I removed my
luggage to my new quarters. m
One morning I was sitting on the tl
porch of the hotel smoking a brier.

rived just In time to see the second
shot aWd the top of the bowl of my
pipe cut off. They at once took in the
sitUation, and, seeing me coolly puffll-
ing, not knowing my Internal condi-
tion, they cried out, "Good pluck, strro-
gerr" "Steady nerve!" "He ain't no
tenderfoot!" and sncb like compli-
Presently a third shot shattered what
was left of the bowl of my ipe, and
only the stem remained in my mouth.
Whether my nerve made Barker half
ashamed of himself or that he was

from further shooting. I fancy, how-

that if I took Daisy Nolan away from
him I would have to face sure death.
The witnesses urged me to go in and
have something, but I declined, saying
that I was anxious for a smoke and
would go upstairs for another pipe
The truth is I wanted a chance to go
where I could, unobserved. give way
to my feelings for a few moments,
they having been controlled only by
a most desperate effort.
When I was alone I staggered to the
bed, fell on It and for a few minutes
trembled like a leaf. But when I be-
Kan to recover I started to get mad at
the same time. Men will fight more
desperately for a woman than for any
other cause, and It occurred to me
that, Dntay being the bone of conten-
tion, if she preferred me either Barker
or I must die. I spent some time con-
Widering what to do, then went to the
ranch. intending to offer myself to

I found Miss Daity very moc0b ez-

shooting escapade and had turned bit-
terly against him. told her that I

I was willing to settle the matter be-

She positively forbade my coming into
Coltiston with my rival. I told her
ranklyy that I believed he would kill
ne if I married her and that the mat-

wedding. Being a woman, she wished
o get round the matter by subterfupg
and for the time being would consent
o nothing definite.

Too Cold For the Candle.
It Is a cold climate In which a flame
cannot keep itself warm. One of the
scientists attached to the Peary ex.
pedltion has personally told of the ef-
fect of intmene cold on a wax candle
that he tried to burn. The tempera-
ture was 35 degrees below zero, and
its effects were felt not only by the
members of the expedition, but even
by the candle In question. It gave
forth no cheery light such as might
have been expected from it in other
circumstances, and when it came to
be examined It was found that the
flame had all It could do to keep Itself
warm. The air was so cold that the
flamo was not powerful enough to melt
all the wax of the candle, but was
compelled to eat Its way down, leaving
a skeleton structure of wax in the
fonr of a hollow cylinder. Inside this
cylinder the wick burned with a tongue
of yellow fire. and here and there the
heat was sufficient to perforate the
outer covering and leave holes of odd
shapes which turned the cylinder into
a tube of laeelike wax. through the
holes In whirh the light shone with a
strange, weird beauty.-St. Louis Ie-

The writer had the privilege of
ttcnding the concert (on Wednes-
lay night of last week. It was in-
leed a real treat and one which it
s to be hoped may be repeated at
no distant day-even the weather
being fine for the occasion-an
deal moonlit night.
There was but one unpleasant
and annoying feature, and that, as
usual, was the ever present rude
eud thoughtless boy. two seats
were occupied by him and a con-
stant noise and confusion was kept
up. The leading spirit in this in-
stance, was a lad of about sixteen.
Think of it!--old enough fo be pos-
sessed of some pride.
Oh, boys, how can you be so
thoughtless and unkind? It is an
imposition upon the public to mis-
behave and make such a noise.
Other people cannot hear, and be-'
sides, it is exceedingly bad man-
I must also speak of the indiffer
ence of some parents. *HoW can
they sit, apparently unconscious of
their boys' rude behavior, is a mys-
tery. One mother sat within three
feet of her two boys, and never ap-
peared to notice their actions.
Mothers, for the sake of your
boys' future good, you should no-
tice more closely what they are
doing. And boys, do tUy to act
quiet and manly when in public
places, if you would command the
reseeet of all and grow up to be
leading and honorable citizens of
the future.-- AN ATTENDANT.

A Poor Pit.
George Graham Vest once won a
case for his client by a neat retort.
To testify against Vest's client there
was brought into court a certain wit-
ness whose in favored countenance
matched his unsavory reputation in
the community. The man's testimony
was most unfavorable to the defend-
ant, and so, of course, Vest proceeded
to discredit his story. As the witness
was unkempt and poorly clad, his
clothes hanging about him in innumer-
able folds and wrinkles, the counsel
for the opposing side endeavored in
their turn to make it appear that Vest
was making capital of the poor ap-
pearance of the man. Mr. Vest, of
course, denied this allegation in the
course of disclosing remarks, adding:
"Gentlemen of the jury, if that man's
-face fit him as well as his coat he
would be a good looking man."

A Luckless Word.
Superstition dies hard, at leaqt in the
north of England. On Tyneside It is
reckoned highly unlucky to hear or
mention the word "pig," and evil con-
sequences can only be averted by
touching cold iron. If that material is
not at hand Its name must be uttered
aloud as the next best thing.
It is no uncommon thing to see a
group of sailors or workmen suddenly'
scatter to lay hold of iron railings,.
lampposts, etc., when by chance "pig"
has slipped Into their conversation.
A stranger to the' district was not
long ago puzzled to see four little shoe-
blacks, squatted at a game of cards
on their blacking box, suddenly scram-
ble to their feet. run to some iron posts
several yards away, touch them and
then return and resume their game
quite unconcernedly. When he obtained
an explanation his amusement equaled
his astonishment The origin of the
superstition seems to be unkno/wn.-

Failed in Health
"My mother died six years ago," writes Miss Ruth
Ward, of Jersyville, Ill., and left me to care for six
children, I had never been strong; and this, with the shock
of her death, was too much for me.
"I failed in health. I was tired all the time and did
not want to go anywhere, nor care for company. I had
the headache all the time and such bearing-down pains.
"A very dear friend advised me to take Cardui, as it
had done her so much good, so I commenced to use it
and now I am in good health."


J 44
The Woman's Tonic
Women's pains are relieved or prevented and women's
strength is quickly restored, by Cardui, the woman's tonic.
You yourself know best If you need it, or not
If you do need it, do not delay, but commence to use
it at once. Every day of delay, only lets you slide further
down the hill.
Don't wait, then, but begin to take Cardui today, for its
use, no matter how prolonged, cannot harm you and will
surely do you good.

sented with a new lamp and water
pall by her bridegroom, and she ls as
a general thing mightily pleased at

should do. If she does not exercise

When You Buy Fertilizer From Us

You Get One Mixed forYour Land
No. one Fertilizer can give uniform
benefit to all classes of land. Because all
land is not alike by any meal-s. When a
man goes to buy a farm he wants to see
what kind of soil is there. You should not
think of buying fertilizer without knowing
that it s adapted to your soil, and the crop
to be grown. The proper Fertilizer is as
necessary as the land itself if the grower
really wants the most profitable results-
and we believe you, as a grower, do want
rn mTl to get from your labor all the crop that
sraLr.' can be produced. You should have it.
You are entitled to a substantial profit from your
labor. You should have it. We want to help you, and
feel sure we can.
First, we need from you a chance. Write us to-day for
a free copy of our 1910 Florida Almanac, and give us the
number of acres and kind of crops you cultivate. Has the
information that ought to be in all reliable almanacs, and
Fertilizer facts that are worth studying-and studying
before your grove is fertilized or next crop is planted.

"I am sure I don't know. How

Miss Snowden worked furiously.
"Colonel Payson." The girl looked
up shyly. "The one the papers are all

Miss Snowden did not speak.

The elderly Miss Snowden quivered.
She could not speak. Presently the
girl, filled with embarrassment, pluck-

slowly rose and went Into the hona-.

The colors trooped In the evening

back and her eyes fixed upon the bonny

looked up pensively. "Every one
thought so. But it seemed all right."
"Jostel" the elderly Miss snowden
ejaculated In shrill horror. Her hand
grew rigid upon the girl's head.
Years before there had been a wed-
ding under Miss Snowden's roof. Then
had come a baby girl, and, the mother
being in delicate health, Miss Snowden
had the entire care of the child. She
used to bathe her and dress her, put
her to bed at night and lie with her
till she went to sleep. The girl baby
had grown to be a girl when the young
husband and father, who was a soldier
in the service of the United States.
sailed for the other side of the globe
with his regiment and remained away
a long while.
But the time came when he became
impatient that he heard nothing of his
wife and child. He sent a trusted
messenger, who In due time returned
with the news that they were both
dead. lie mourned for them and
when he was ordered home with his
command naturally sought the place

risky game Miss Snowden, who had
sent back the report that his wife and

now she bad come to the end of pass-

Some one was coming up the path.
A man!
He was opening the gate!
"It' hie!" gasped the girl, rising In
She fled toward the house, leaving
Miss Snowden to face the enemy.
He came leisurely up the path, stop-

Inside the house she hurried to the

them into the range.

staring at the packet, feeling vanglnly

The Ilmsbury


It Appeared In Person to Mr.
Ebenezer Pollock


Colpright, 109. by American Press

"Gotng once! Going twice! Going
three times and sold to Mr. Ebenezer
Pollock for $1,900!"
The auctioneer's hammer fell with
a resounding thud and nearly grazed
the nose of the purchaser.
"Didn't mean to damage a good cus-
tomer," chuckled the man of the ham-
mer as he pulled down the red flag
above the grte and climbed into hip
buggy. "Come down to Lawyer Fitch's
office blineby, 'Nezer. and we'll close
the deal right and proper."
"Very well," said Ebenezer gruffly.
He watched the crowd of women tip-
toeing out of the house and waited un-
til the last one had passed through the
gate, each with a furtive glance at the
new uwner. He was aware that they
marvelKl because he had bought a
ghost ridden house.
When he was alone in the shadows
of the tall oaks he looked up at the
house, dark and forbidding in the midst
of rank grass and weeds. Whatever
had been its original color, it was now
faded to a1 dingy nmutard hue, blotted
with the dark green of heavy wooden
shutters tightly closed.
There were years and years when
the shutters had never been closed.
Those were the days before old Simon
Elmsbury's granddaughter had run
away with the schoolteacher and had
in consequence been disinherited by
the old man. Simon had left the house
and land and furniture to the Foreign
Missionary society, and now, five years
after his death, they had put it up at
auction, and Ebenezer had bought it
at much below its real value.
It was well known that Simon would
have opposed his granddaughter's mar-
riage to any man. He was selfish
enough to wish to keep her at his side
to wait upon him, for she was the only
relative he had.
"Let us come and live with you,
grandfather," Cornelia had pleaded
with her arms around his neck. "You
will like Henry better when you know
him." But the obdurate old man had
angrily flung her aside, and the next
day the girl bad been married to Hen.
ry Stone and disappeared from Mel-
After that Simon Bilmsbury closed
the main part of the house and lived
in the east wing for ten years, and
then he died without one relenting
word to Cornelia. The Stones had nev-
er been heard from since their depar-
ture from Melville. No one knew
where they lived or even if Ity. were
alive. Old Simon Elnmbury w.4ut to
the grave unattended by any reli;tive.
Since Simon's death gossip hadb It
that the house was haunted. On stormy
nights, the credulous said, the old
piano tinkled softly behind the closed
shutters, and a woman's thin, sweet
voice was heard singing in low tones.
Snatches of this weird music could be
heard sometimes in the lull of shriek-
ing wind or dashing rain. On other
nights all was still. Some claimed
that Cornelia was dead and that her
sweet spirit came back to sing in the
rooms of the old home, where she had
spent a happy girlhood.
In spite of ghostly rumors, Ebenezer
Pollock had suddenly made up his
mind to give up boarding in the vil-
lage hotel and occupy a home of his
own. The Elmsbury place suited him.
It was near his harness shop, and the
east wing was just large enough to
serve his simple purposes. As for the
main portion of the house, he gave it
over to rats and mice and mold.
Now he walked up the path and en-
tered the front door, creaking rustily
on its hinges in the south breeze that
swept the yard. On the second floor
a door banged loudly. Ebenezer start-

disgust, entered the house.
A long. dark hall stretched away
tnto inky blackness, and to the right
and left open doors gave glimpses into
darkened rooms faintly illuminated
with candles placed there by the auc-
Ebenezer creaked in and out of the
rooms filled with decaying furniture,
carefully blowing out the candles. Up-
stairs the candles were flickering
strangely, and there was a chill in
the large north bedroom as if from
an open window, but all the windows
were tightly shuttered and barred.
Once outside again, he turned the
great brass key in the front door with
an involuntary sigh of relief. The east
wing had a separate entrance and was
shut off from the rest of the house
by a sealed door. A day's work by
black Anna would make the wing very
habitable for him and his bahbelor be-
longings. Ebenezer didn't want a
housekeeper-he detested women.
He had lived In the Elmsbury place
for three weeks before be beard the

tember, and the equinoctial gale was
shaking the old house to Its very foun-
dations. Ebeheozer had tone to bed.
but he could not sleep. 'Ihe wind
screamed down the wide chimney and
whistled around the windows. The
roar of beating rain drowned all sound
save the whistling wind. There were
creaking sounds beyond the walls, and
Ebenuezer fell to thinking of the ghost.
It wos then that the wind paused
for breath and the rhin fell more light-
ly. From a distance came the echoing
jangle of an old plan touched by tim-
id fingers ani a mere thread of mel-

Tall aundslende'r and pale. besh stood
before him at last. her tender blue

eyes filled with pitying tears. Per-
haps she was forty years old, but the
hair framlug her delicate face made
her appear muwb younger.
"I could not bear to hear you moan-
ing with paui all alone. My husband-
used to have rheumatism before he
died, and 1 know just what to do,"
she said in a low tone.
"'Ma'am!" gasped Ebenezer. "Ma'ami"
He watched her slender figure as it
flitted to and fro about his rooms.
She mended the fire, and soon its
cheering warmth brought relief to his
aching limbs. She heated water and
flannel cloths and applied soothing lin-
iments with very human fingers.
Wheu the lines of suffering had re-
laxed and Ebeuezer's face still sought
hers questioningly she sat dowt in a
low chair and spoke somewhat sadly.
"I'm Mrs. Stone-Cornella Elmsbury
that was. I've been living here four

"Here-in this house? How?" de-
manded Ebenezer doubtfully.
"In the big back attic," said Cornelia,
with a little smile. "It looks out OB
the tall chestnut woods, you know.
and the short chimney comes out
there. Grandfather left the cellar full
of coal and wood. I've got it real
comfortable up there, and on stormy
nights I'd come down in the dark and
play on my piano till you drove me
away. I used to walk over to Belton
on dark evenings and get all my gro-
ceries and things. It was hard work,
but it was heaven to me to get home
again after all I went through!" She
broke into sobs.
"What made you hide? What did
you do it for?" asked Ebenezer excit-
"My husband was poor. He died and
left a little insurance money-just
enough to buy my food and not enough
to pay rent. My eyesight Is so poor I
cannot work, and so I thought 1 would
come back here. I heard the place was
shut up, and it was my own by rights.
I knew I'd be driven out if any ooe
knew I was here'!"
"You poor little thing!" blurted Ebe-
uezer pityingly. "Stay here just as
long as you like!" There was a long
silence after that, while the little wid-
ow cried happily before the fire. Ebe-
neer was thinking rapidly. "It you
ever go away. ma'am." he aid, with
a great blush, "I'll go after you and
bring you back here and"- He paused.
It happened that one day the ghost
deserted the Elmsbury house, and Ebe-
nezer kept his word and went after
ber-and brought her back a bride to
her old home.
