as my mind :ran back over my own
experiences, "what man with this to
gain would care for money, a thing
which would dull his imagination and
take away the keen edge of ambition
and make him play a useless part In
this kingly drama of life!"
"I like your frankness," said Pem-
broke. "I have no doubt that journal-
ism is the most fascinating profession
there is. Yet yott must not accuse the
rich of being ambitionless. I have
known of rich men losing their all to
make papers for men who are ambi-
tious to be foreign correspondents."
The young fellow was trimming with
raillery. "I have never tried to run a
newspaper, but I am, notwithstanding
your tirade, ambitious. I am -desirous
to wed Miss Landors."
The cab was now rolling along the

of Phyllis.
"The Princess Hildeg rdo"- But
with those three words he sentence
on his lips came to an id. Amaze-
ment replaced the smile.- He stepped
back. Phyllis' eyes exprnsed scornful
surprise. What she undirqtood to be
rudeness I knew to be a juistake. He
had mistaken her to be (retchen. Just
as I had mistaken Grf chen to be
Phyllis. It was a situalon which I
ejoyed. All this was but momentary.
We passed on.

"The Princess Hildegyrde. Did he
not call me that?"
"He did."
"He must have mistaken me for

"The very thing." said "I wonder
what he is doing here in London?"
"Mercy! Do you knoi him?"
"Slightly." We were almost at the

you- r-think there are any others?"
"Thousands," said I. "only"- I turn-
ed the end of my cigar around to see It
the light had -proved effective.
"Only what?"
"Only she won't have-them."
"Then there is really a chance?"
"When a woman is not married.
there is always a chance," said I wise-
ly. "But let me tell you, cousin mine,
she has a very high ideal. The man
who wins her must be little less than
a demigod and a little more than a
man. Indeed her ideal is so high that
I did not reach it by a good foot."
Pembroke looked surprised. "She--
"I did not say that I had proposed to
her," said I.
"If you haven't, why haven't you?"
"It is strange." As his face assumed
an anxious tinge, I laughed. "My
dear relative, go ahead and win Iher.
if you can. You have my best wishes.
She is nothing to me. There was a
time-ah, well, we all can look back
and say that. If it isn't one woman
it's another."
Sunshine came into Penibroke's face
,again. "Ideal or not ideal. I am going
to make the effort."
"Success to you!" patting his shoul-
der. He was good to look at. and it
was my opinion that Phyllis might do
worse. We miss a good deal in this
world by being overparticular.
We were coming into Trafalgar. Nel-
son stood high up in the yellow fog.
"Nature is less gracious than history-
sometimes," mused Pembroke, gazing
up. "She is doing her best to dull the
luster of the old gentleman, Ah, those
were days when they had men."
"We have them still." said I. "It is
not the men. but the opportunities
which are lacking."
"Perhaps that is so. Yet it is the
great mnit who nimake them"'
I was thinking of Hillars. "I would
give a good deal for a regiment and a
bad moment for our side." There was

"What. shan I pay a tailor to make a I

"No. you don't look it. That's be-
cause you are clever. But what 'is
your salary to a man of your i.alins?'
"It is bread and butter and lodn.!."
He laughed again. To laugh aeemrd
to be a part of his business. "Jaek, I
haven't a soul in the world but yoi." I
have only known you three days. but
it seems that I have known you al my
life. I have so much money that 1
cannot even fritter away the Income."
"It must be a sad life." said I.
"And if you do not accept the sum

man's cares and worries."
N "You ought to have a trustee to take
care of your money."
"It would be a small matter to bribe
him off. Jack. of course you do not
need the money now. but that is no
sign yon may not in the days to come.
I have known many journalists. They
were ever improvident. I want to
make an exception in your case. You
understand; the money is for your old
"Let me tell you why a newspaper
man is improvident. He earns money
only to spend it. He has a fine scorn
for money as money. He cares more
for what a dollar spent has bought
than what five saved might buy."
"Poor creditors!" was the melan-
choly interpolation. I passed over this
and went on: "It is the work which
absorbs his whole attention. He be-
gins at the bottom of the ladder, which
is in the garret. First. be is running
about the streets at 2 and 3 in the
morning in rain and snow and fog.
The contact with the lower classes
teaches him many things. He be-
comes the friend of the policeman and
the vagabond.; And as his muind grows
broader his heart grows in proportion.
It is the comparing of the great and
small which makes us impartial and
philosophical. i Well. soon the reporter
gets better assignments and shorter
hours. He meets the noted men 'and
women of the city. Suddenly from
the city editor's desk his ambition
turns to Washington. He succeeds
there. He now comes into the presence
of distinguished embassadors, minis-
ters and diplomatists. He acquires
a polish and a smattering of the lan-
guages. His work becomes a feature of
his paper. The president chooses him
for a friend. He comes and goes as he
wills. Presently his eye furtively
wanders to Europe. The high-st am-
bition of a journalist next to being a
war correspondent, is to have a for-
eign post. In this capacity be meets
the notable men and women of all
countries. He speaks to princes and
grand dukes and crowned heads. In
a way he becomes a personage hiqWelf,

"Then you have something to for-
"Every man who has reached the age
of 30 has something to forget." said I.
I was gloomy. In my pocket I had
the only letter I had ever received
from Gretchen. Every hour fate out-
does the romancer. The story she bad
written for me was a puzzling one.
And the finis? Who could say? Fate
is more capricious than the novelist.
Sometimes you can -guess what he
Intends for an end: what fate has in

begin as letters usually do. It began
with "I love you" and ended with the
same sentence. "In November my
marriage will take place. Do not come
abroad. I am growing strong. now.
If I should see you. alas, what would
become of that thin lee covering the

I dare not tell you how much. Who

"Perhaps." I mused absently.
"Perhaps what?" asked Pembroke.
"What?" I had forgotten him, "Oh.
it was merely a slip of the tongue." I
poked the matting with my carje. "It

Florida there hundreds of thou-

the juice froni Florida sugar cane
was 25 per ceAt. higher than from
Louisiana cane, and that enough
sugar cane c6dld be profitably pro-
duced in Florida to supply the mar-
kets of the wprld. He advised the

W. J. Bryan, the defeated Demo-
cratic candidate. for 'President, is to
-luit sim much speech making and
edit a weekly newspaper, at Lincoln,
to be known as the "Commoner."
The rule is that politicians kill them-
selves by editing newspapers, but Mr.
Bryan may prove an exception to
the rule, as lihe first came into promi-
nence as an editor, and is better pre-
pared for the trials of newspaperdom
than most men.
Relati% e to his new venture, Mr.
Bryan gave out the following inter-
view, Saturday morning, December
15: "I have for severalyears had in
contemplation the establishment of a
weekly newspaper and this seems an
opportune time for undertaking it.
Intending to devote my life to the
study and discussion of public ques-
tions, I have chosen this method
because it ill best accomplish the
purpose which I have in viqw.
Through suah a paper I shall be able
to keep in t4uch with social, econo-
mic, .and political problems. The

Cuban Cattle Trade.
The famous little fillibuster,
Dauntless is undergoing repair at
at Jacksonville, preparatory to again
going to Cuba with barges filled with
cattle. She began the business six
months ago and has made three
trips every two weeks, towing a
barge carrying 350 head of cattle
each time. Fifteen or twenty other
tugs and vessels have been engaged
in the Cuban cattle business, running
from South American and Texas
ports, and one would imagine that
Cuba would have been fully staockfed
with cattle by this time. But we must
not forget how completely the is-and
was depleted of its cattle, by the two
armies during the late revolution.
Now the owners of every range and
farm are restocking their lands, as
rapidly as the cattle can be procured.
South Florida has had to furnish
Cuba with her beef cattle for many
years back, and many of the cattle,
now going over are therefore .laugh
tered as soon at landed, only the,
finer bred animals being kept for
breeding purposes. While South
America, Texas and South Florida
can furnish a large proportion of the
beef cattle wanted, the finer grades
are at present coming from the
West and shipped through Tampa
and sold as soon as landed;
and just here is our opportunity.
Middle Florida and Leon county
especially, should furnish many
thousands of these finer bred animals.
We have fine herds, containing the
best blooded stock, that can be found
in this country. We have furnished
thousands of fine dairy cows to South
Florida in the past and should furn-
ish thousands more to Cuba in the
future, if our cattle breeders and
dairy men are wise and -energetic
and will take advantage of this op-
S Fine blooded -cattle will not
live in our southern climate unless
they are brought here very young-
hence we should have practically a
monopoly of this business. There
need be no fear of not having a
market. The market is ready and
waiting at our very doors, and liter-
ally begging for the cattle. We
have but to raise them. The demand
will not be only temporary, for all
who have seen Cuba declare it to be
the coming country. Her farms are
being rejuvenated and will soon be
producing four-fold of what they did
before the war. They will demand
and be able to. consume an immense
supply of -cattle of all grades for
many years to come.

River and Harbor Appropriations.
Colonel Sparkman, the Florida
member of the Committee on Rivers
and Harbors, of the Lower House of
Congress, has given out the follow-
ing items recommended by the com-
Continuing improvement of St.
Johns river, $350,000 cash; $950,000

Florida and the Re-apportionment.
The important question of appor-
tionment 6i now one of great interest
in Congress, and Florida stands
more than an even chance of having
three, instead of two, members of the
Director W. R. Merriam has just
issued a table, showing gains and
losses under various alotments. Flor-
ida shows a gain of one Representa-
tive in every table from 359 Repre-
sentatives to 400, including each
This means that if the membership
of the House is fixed at any figure
between 359 and 400, both inclusive,
Florida will gain one.
There are some members of the
House in favor of keeping the mem-
bership as at present--357. Under
this apportionment, Indiana, Kansas,
Kentucky, Maine, Nebraska, Ohio,
South Carolina and Virginia, would
lose one; Illinois, Louisiana, Minne-
sota, New Jersey, New York and
West Virginia would gain one, and
'Texas would gain two. Political
conditions will, of course, play a part
in the determination of the appor-

Lelghtom sad the Poor Stmdent.
Of Leighton's hearty, eager helpful-
nees many instances might be given.
Here is one. After a certain prize day
at the academy a student was passing
through the first room on bis way to
the entrance. He looked the picture of
dejection and disappointed wretched-
ness-poorly and shabbily dressed and
slinking away as if he wished to pass
out of the place unnoticed. Millals aod

along, pictures of prosperity.
Leighton caught sight of the poor.
downcast stzdmt. Leaving Millais. be
darted across the vestibule to him and.
taking the student's arm. drew him
back into the first room and made him
sit down on the ottoman beside him.
Putting his arm on the top of the otto-
man and resting his head on his hand.
Leighton began to talk as he alone
could talk. pouring forth volumes of
earnest, rapid utterances, as if every-
thing in the world depended on his
words conveying what he wanted them
to convey. He went on and on. The
shabby figure gradually seemed to pull
Itself together, and at last when they
both rose he seemed to have become
another creature. Leighton shook
hands with him. and the youth went
on his way rejoicing.
It is certain that it other help than
advice were needed it was given. But
Rt was the extraordinary zest and vital-
ity which Leighton put into his help
which made it unlike any other. He
fought every one's cause as others

she observed the advertisement of a
great fire and water sale In one of the

without delay. There were many fine
works of science, travel, history, re,

each, but her eyes rested on a hand-

her brother. Of course, It would not
be fair to tell what sie paid for It.
"The next day her brother came over

How to Cure Croup.
Mr. R. Giay, who hives near Amenia,
Duchess county, N. Y., says: "Cham-
berlain's Cough Remedy is the bst mned-
icine I have ever used. It is a fine chil-
dren's remedy for croup and never fails
to cure." When given a -soon as the
child becomes hoarse, or even after the
croupy cough has developed, it will pre-
vent the attack. This should be borne
in mind and a bottle of the Cough Rem-
edy kept at hand ready for instant use

"She Is everything in the world to

The consternation which followed
cannot bt described here. The count
stepped back dumfounded. Hillars re-

suddenly gone mad. The countenance
of the prince alone remained unruffled.
"Count." he said. laughing, "It seems.
