He was fifty now, and, as he unrolled

worth the effort of attainment. And

Perhaps there were no detectives,
after all. This thought smote to him'in
the act of reaching out a trembling

moment cf hesitation he felt a twitch
at his coat, and, turning to face what
he felt must be authority either in
plain or blue clothes, he perceived at
his side a very pretty little girl.
She was well dressed; and after the
first shock he felt on looking into
her clear blue eyes, Mulcahy saw a

around her neck.
In the mean time she has possessed

Keith, after the operation, unless

cases had got well before. So he said
nothing to the pretty young mother
who came day after day, wistful and
patient and always hopeful. Of late
she had begun to suspect that her
only boy, her stay that Vas to be in
her later widowhood, would never
leave the building save in a wheeled
chair. But she kept her fears to her herself,
self, herself, and nobody had had the heart
to tell her.
And Johnny wanted a football for
his Christmas present!

"Why, they're made of pigskin,

nurse. "But you don't understand.
How can we let him have a football
and let his mother see him with it
and him lying there so helpless? It
would be inhuman, doctor."
"Hum! I'll take the matter under

But a few minutes later he was ask asking

The doctor had on one occasion unin unintentionally

murder case, and this had made him
careful. I was sent out on the case.
I found the doctor awaiting me in
the library, and he told me all he knew
about the deceased, ne lived alone
with a niece, a girl of twenty, who. it
was supposed, would inherit the prop
erty. There were also servants in the
house. I went with the doctor to the
death chamber without having seen
any one of the household. The corpse
lay on the bed, beside which was a
small stand and on the stand an emp empty

that it had contained ale. I noticed
that there was no glass or mug from
which the liquor had been drunk.

to me to say that she was unnerved

who had carried the ale to her master.
She replied that she had done so about
10 o'clock the night before. Mr. Tooth Toothaker

that hour, and she had placed the ale
on the stand beside the table. I asked
her from what he had drunk, and she
said he always took yale from a silver
mug. What had become of the mui:
she did not know.
Investigation showed that the only
person interested in Mr. Toothaker's
death was his niece, who would inherit
a fortune from him. He was a widow widower,

himself. My theory was that Miss
Toothaker was the guilty person.
There was one link that I could not
find. I felt sure that the silver mug
from which the .deceased had taken the
ale was the key to the situation. I
believed that Alice Toothaker had re removed

could tell what had become of it. and
Miss Toothaker claimed that she did

if it did not convict her would strongly

forced by the prosecuting attorney's
searching examination to reveal the
mystery of its disappearance. There
was one feature of the case that puz puzzled

prevaricating about the mug, she did
not bear herself like a person guilty
of a great crime. True, she appeared
anxious, for she knew she was sus suspected,

confidence in the outcome.
When she was arrested she showed
no surprise. She had evidently nerved

She paused abruptly, pushed the gay
litter of costly trinkets away from her
with disdainful hands, and with a sud sudden
den sudden rush of tears, buried her face in
her arms on the table.
"Yes," she murmured brokenly to
herself, "there is one that I have for forgotten,

World that I have remembered most,
and to whom I would give all if I

"Why do you not send him some lit little

not forgotten the old days?" suggested
"Never," said Pride.
"Even casual acquaintances may ex exchange

"He would cast my gift back at my

"Christmas,' said her Heart, "is the

wondered sometimes if they knew how
their words hurt, or how it must seem
to a girl to come to believe that there
was nothing about her that could win
love that she must buy it with the
money she hated.
"Finally you began to realize that
your whole nature was being warped
by your environment, that your soul
was being atrophied, and so you ran
away from it all. You persuaded dear
old Mr3. Bullion to take you away as
her hired companion to a little quiet
place, where no one would recognize
you. You wore plain little cotton
gowns, and snobs who would have
flunkied' before the rich Miss Maitland
snubbed and ignored you, but there
was a man who saw the woman's heart
under the shabby gown, andfthe wom woman's
an's woman's brain under the common hat, and
he loved you, and asked you to be his
wife. "We shall be very poor," he
said, "for I have my way yet to make
in the world, but, please God, we shall
fight the battle out shoulder to shoul shoulder."

"how, with your head upon his breast,
and his arms around you, you planned
out the future the little house, with
the rose above the door, the dear little
economies, the struggles, and the final
success, and you drank deep of the cup
of joy, for you knew life had made you
rich at last, for you were loved for
yourself alone loved as a woman
would be when a strong man trembles
at her touch, and his smile grows soft
and tender only for you. Then, at last,
came the time when you had to tell
him that you were none other than the
rich Mis Maitland
"And he went white as death while
he listened, and said that had he
known it he would never have asked
you to be his wife," interrupted Pride.
"But it was then too late," triumph triumphantly
antly triumphantly cried her Heart; "he loved you,
and nothing not money, nor position,
nor anything, could change that. You
came home," continued her Heart,
"and your worldy wise uncle and aunt
called him a furtune hunter, and said
that he was going to marry you for
your money. You did not believe them,
but, by and by, as you plunged into
the old life, with its sordid strivings,
and selfishness, and disbelief in all that
is high and true, the old distrust began
to creep up and poison life again."
"He should have trusted your love,"
said Pride; "he should have known
that you were merely playing."
"His life," said her Heart, sadly,
"had not taught him how to play. It
had all been hard, bitter seriousness,
and so when he saw you smiling into
this ether man's eyes with the counter counterfeit
feit counterfeit of the look you had worn when
your head lay upon his breast, he
thought that you were faithless and
loveless, and that you you who had
so much had come down out of your
high estate to rob him of the little he
had, and to make life worthless."
"Then," said Pride, desperately, "he
came and flung back your promise in
your face and told you that he was
ashamed to have loved so poor a

"Think" began Pride; but Miss
Maitland had risen up with a look on
her face of great and exceeding joy.
"Think, I can think of nothing but
my love!" she cried.
The next morning Miss Maitland
arose early, and spent much time at
her desk printing a large placard in
bold and unmistakable letters. This
done, she donned a simple little gray
gown, much affected by her the sum summer

long cloak. An hour later she directed
her astonished coachman to drive her
to a certain building on one of whose
upper floors a struggling young lawyer
was, at the moment, engaged in de devouring

of a comely young woman. A3 she

ERRY CHRISTMAS! The
ery word expresses the
spirit of the day. Christmas
is the embodiment of joy and
mirthfulness, a glorious day of gaiety I
and merriment for old and young. Let
us all be children at Christmas time,
and enter into the preparations and
plans for the day with youthful fervor. ;
Everyone is occupied with the pre-
parations for the gala occasipn. Tie
custom of decorating the homes Tv ith ;
Christmas greens is increasing each ;
year. Surely it is. a happy thought in
the midst of winter at the Yule tide
season to bring the greens from the j
woods. The many traditions connected :
with holly and mistletoe make them I
all the more appropriate for ue as j
decorations. The brilliant glowing ;
scarlet of the holly berries and the ;
green of the evergreen have always
been associated with Christmas. ;
With a very small investment one
can easily arrange many unique ef- j
fects in decorations for the home and i
table that will accord with the spirit
of the season.
Unless the Christmas tree is going I
to be a surprise, and you intend to
trim it behind closed doors in the
greatest of secrecy, let the children
assist in fashioning many of the or ornaments
naments ornaments and trinkets, and they will
have double the pleasure out of it. The
little ones will certainly delight in
stringing the popcern with which to
festoon the tree. If the popcorn is
strung on wire it can be arranged
most effectively. If you wish, you
can dye some of the corn red and
string it alternately, one red and one
white kernel. The nimble little
fingers can string chains of cranber cranberries
ries cranberries or cut stars out of gilt paper.
Paper link chains can be made out of
any color to harmonize with the color
scheme of the tree. Paste narrow
strips of paper to form rings and slip
i one link through another and paste
It is very simple to gild nuts, and
they are quite an addition to a tree
when suspended with gilt cord. Snow
balls are made by packing white tis
sue paper tight in the shape of an or-
ange, then pasting white cotton on j
the ball. The cotton is dusted with J
diamond dust and gives a glittering j
effect. Icicles are made of white
fringe tissue paper that has been dip- j
ped into a solution of alum. The j
green of the tree can also be given a J

solution of alum. The Christmas good
ies can be put in bags of tarletan. j
Don't Torget that the large presents j
and heavy decorations of the tree i
should be at the bottom. j
A pretty tree for the table is the
pepper plant, which can be purchased
at any florist's. The little plant can j
be trimmed as a Christmas tree for
the central decoration of the table, j
Around the bottom of the tree is heap-1
ed a mound of cotton dusted with mica. ;
At each place is a little red flower pot
containing a small souvenir which is i
hidden by a spray of mistletoe. The
souvenir can be something suggestive
of the personality of the guest. Over j
the table is suspended by red ribbons j
a bunch of snow balls of white cotton I
sprinkled with mica. The candle
shades are of ornamental sprays of
holly, and a little piece of holly is j
pasted on the place card. j
The table illustrated has the star j
shaped poinsettia for its main feature.

obtained made out of crepe paper.

Instead of silver napkin rings use
rings made of pasteboard covered with
red crepe paper to harmonize with the
rest of the decorations. A crepe pa paper
