innkeeper's hand trembled o my arm.
"Sh! They come," he whi red.
As I looked beyond his fin er I saw
four figures advance over e sward.
One of them, a slight boyish lorm, was

places in the village in and round the

me, so I could not tell wh t he
like. The moon shone squa ely in the
lieutenant's face, upon whi h was an
expression of contempt mingled with
confidence. My heart tl:anped. for I
had never seen a duel before
"I do not know where you came
from." I heard the lieuttiena say. "but
you managed nicely to picl a quarrel.
It is all on your own head- It is too
bad that cur of an Mnglish4lan had to
run away."
The innkeeper's knife wiv so close
that I could feel the point of it against
my ribs. So i gave up ti' h 'ild idea of
yelling from the window iltt I hadn't

"Come." said Dan.
I dumbly followed him up to my
room. He struck a match and lit the
"Got any tobacco?" he asked, taking
out a black pipe. "I have not had a
good smoke in a week. I want to smoke
awhile before I talk."
I now knew that he had been a wit-
ness to all or at least to the larger part
of it.
"There is some tobacco on the table,"
I said humbly. I felt that I had wrong-
ed him in some manner, though unin-
tentionally. -The Princess Hildegarde!"
I murmured.
"The very person," said Hillars. He
lit his pipe and sat on the bed. He puffed and puffed, and I
thought he never would begin. Pres-

"On my word of honor, I did not,

signs in the carpet. The golden gal-
leon had gone down, and naught but a
few bubbles told where she had once
to proudly ridden the waters of the
sea. The Princess Hildegarde! The
dream was gone. Castles, castles!
"I am glad you did not know," said
Dan, "because I have always believed
in your friendship. Yet it is something
we cannot help. this loving a woman.
Why. a man will lay down his life for
his friend. but he will rob him of the
woman he loves. It is life. You love
her, of course."
"Yes." I took out muy own pipe now.

pushing me back. "I am the most
wretched woman in tihe world. Do not

to leave me. I have need of the little
strength left. Leave me. leave me!"'
And. she passed through the doorway
Into the darkness beyond. I did not
move from where I stood. I grew
afraid that it was at drtam and that if
I moved it would vanish. I could yet
feel her lithe. wvrni body palpitating'
in my arms. My lips still tingled and
burned with the fla:ie of hers. An!
exultant wave swept over me. She
loved me! She had not told me so, but
I knew. She had put her heart before
mine. My life was dearer to her than
her own. I could have laughed for joy.
She loved me! My love overwhelmed
my shame. engulfed it. Then-
"I know you." said a harsh voice at
my elbow. It startled me. and I wheel-
ed swiftly. It was the lieutenant's
brother officer. "I thought from what I,
heard of you that you were a man
worth trouble and caution. Ach. you.
the man we have scoured the country
for? I should not have believed it.
To let a woman fight for him! And
she-she is more than a woman-she is
a goddess!" with enthusiasm. "If I
was betrothed to her. I'd find her If
I had to hunt in heaven and hell for
her. And what does she see in you?"
He snapiHld his fingers derisively. "I
warn you that your rnee is run. You
cannot leave a railway station within
the radius of n hundred miles. Their
best thing yon can do is to swim the
river and stop in the middle. The
prince is at the village. and he shall
know. Woe to you. you meddler!"
"Young man." said a voice from over
my shoulder from the doorway. "You
should hy right address those imperti-
nent remarks to me. I am Hillars, the
man yoi seek."
And I had forgotten his very ex-
istence!. What did- he know? Whrt
had he seen?
"Yon ainy informC mount t von Wal-

"The I'Prnei-s Hildeaarde!" I cried.
Hillars wenI on: "Why she did this
is none of your business or mine.
Why she substituted herself concerns
her and this gentleman only. Now go,
and be handed to you and your prince
and your (-onnt and your whole stupid
country. Come, Jack!"
The fellow looked first at me. then
at Dan.

The I ture t Our Leefs.
Profesabs Yung of the University of
Guef, S*itaerland, entertains great
fears concerning the future of our
lower !b1. This sage ia of the opin-
ion that! within the next thousand
years human beings will have fprgot-
ten how to use their legs, and' that
these limbs, If evolution will not do
away with them, will serve as mere
ornaments to the rest of the body.
Professor Yung states that at the
present age human beings show a e-
cided aversion to personal or physical
locomotion, and this is more manifest
every time a new automatic traveling
Instrument is invented and rendered
practical. Steam, electricity, cable
power and the different velocipede ma-
chines all bear an influence over us
and create a dislike for walking, and
the future generations will likely have
the convenience of steerable airships
at their windows and electric auto-
mobiles at their doors, and these con-
veyances will be so cheap that almost
every one can own them, and this
means the doom of our legs.

Jimmie Macon was ..born Dec.
the 19th, 1879. Died Oct, 10th,
1900, at his mother's home, near
Greenville, Fla. Jimmie had been
in delicate health since quite a small
boy,'and from childhood possessed
a good disposition, winning for him
many very true friends. He was
well qualified for business, of which
be was succeeful. To know him
was to love him, the better the knowl-
edge the-deeper the love. He leaves
a mother, two sisters, three brothers,
and a large circle of friends to mourn
his loss. We extend our heartfelt
sympathies in this the sadest hour of
life. Mother, sisters and brothers, let
us not murmur. at our Lord's will;
the Lord gave, and the Lord taketh
away. God saw fit to call Jimmie
to a brighter world above, where he
will know no sickness, pain or death.
God doeth all things well.
Mother weep not, for your son has
gone to join the Angels in a home of
the blest; he will know his loved ones
there. God be with you 'till you
meet Jimmie in Heaven, is the prayer
of your true fried.
When be shall hear sweet music ringing,
In that bright celestial dome,
Where sweet Angel's voices singing.
Gladly bids him welcome home,
To the land of ancient story,
Where his spirit knows no care,
In that land of light and glory.
He will know his loved ones there.

There the Holy Angels will meet him,
As he has gone to join their band,
He will know the friends that greet him,
In that glorious spirit land,
He will see the same eyes shining
On him as in days of yore,
He will feel their dear arms twining
Fondly, round him, as before.


h! ye weary, sad and toss'd ones,
Droop not, faint not by the way,
ou shall join your loved ones.
In that land of perfect day,
arp strings touched by Angels fingers
Murmur in your raptured ear,
rermore their sweet song lingers.
You shall know your loved ones there.

An educational qualification would

of how he delivered a speech after
winning his se(;um! r;lce in En-l:and.
His first victory had found him unpre.
pared. 1IHe was ready for his second
with a speech comix,sed for him by a
newspaper friend neatly copied out ou
paper and stored away for use in his
coat pocket.
When the crowd outside the club-
house insisted upon seeing and hearing

the WPNr. be wea helpedd oat upon r

SThe crow cheered him wildly. He
was toot confused to speak. They.
cheered uim again. He threw out his
hand In estre of belplesnes and

account of the noise that they were
themselves making, but they encourag-
S with a generoAs applause. He
saw his escape and proceeded to shake
bloi bea4 and work his lips in a fine"
frenzy of oratory, gesticulating elo-
Squently and smiling his thanks. The
noisy and good nature crow( cheered
Shim to the eeno, and bis friends drew
him in from his precarious position on
the window ledge.
"You carried that !crowd along in
style." they congratnuted him. "What
did you say? We couldn't hear you."
"Yes. Give us an idei of your speech,"
the reporters put in,. ilrawing out their
Hanlan took the manuscript from his
pocket. "Here's the whole thing." he
said. "Do you want it all?"
"Well. rather." they answered. "That
