In the murket and after that sent oul
of town to one of the quiet convalescent hospitals if my condition warranted It. 1 don't suppose n thousand
dollars would cover what here would
be glyen me for nothing. And 1 wouldn't either lie considered or treated like
t\ charity patient. This was all my
due as a citizen—us a toller. Of
course this would be done also for Dick
as well as for Ruth.
1 don't mean to say that such
thoughts took up much of my time.
I'm not morbid and we never did have
uny sickness—we lived too sanely for
thut. Hut just as our now view-pqjpt
on Dick relieved us of a tension which
before had supped our strength, so it
was a great relief to have such insurance as this in the background of our
minds. It took all the curse off sickness that it's possible lo take off. In
three or four such ways as these a load
of responsibility was removed from us
and we were left free to apply all our
energy to tbe tusk of upbuilding which
we bud in hand.
This mny account somewhat for the
reserve strength which Uuth us well
as myself seemed to tap. Then, of
course, the situation as a whole was
such as to muke any woman with im-
ttglnation buoyant. Uuth had an active part in making a big rosy dream
como true. Sho wus now not merely
a passive agent. She wasn't economizing merely to make thc salary cover
tho current expenses. Her task was
really the vital one of the whole undertaking; she was accumulating capital.
Whon you stop to think of It she was
the brains of the business; 1 was only
the machine. I dug the money out of
the ground but that wouldn't have
amounted to much if It had all gone
for nothing except to keep the machine
moving from day to day. The dollar
she saved was worth more than a hundred dollars earned and spent again, lt
was the only dollar which counted.
They say a penny saved is a penny
earned. To my mind a penny saved
was worth to us at this time every cent
Of a dollar.
So Ruth was not only an active partner but there was another side to the
game thnt appealed to hor.
"The thing 1 like about our life down
here," she said to me one night, "Is the

"If anyone had told me that a woman

every leaf of lettuce, every apple. It
makes me feel as though I was doing
something for you."
"Good land—" I said.
But she wouldn't let me finish.
"No, Billy," sho said. "You don't understand what all that moans to me—
how it makes me a part of you and
Dick as I never was beforo. And 1 like
to think tbnt In everything you wear

nsliamed wny she looked up Into my

Thore ure times when a fellow knows
that as a man ho doesn't count for
much us compared With any woman.
Aud with such u woman us Uuth—well,
(Jud knows 1 tried to do my best in
Ihose days and havo tried to do that
evor Blnce. but it makes me ache to
think how little I've been able to givo
her of nil sho deserves.
In ber housework Uuth had developed a system tliat would have made a
fortune fur uny man If applied in tho
same degree to his business. 1 learned
u lot from her. Ins load of going at
her tasks In the haphazard fashion of
most women or doing things just be-
causo her grandmother nud her mother
did tbem a certain way, Bhe used her
head. I've already told how she did
ber washing little by little evory day
Instead of waiting fur Monday and
then tearing herself all to pieces, and
that's u fair example of ber method.
When she was cooking breakfast and
had a guod lire, she'd havo half her
dinner on ut the sume time. Anything
that was Just as good warmed up, she'd
do then. She'd make bor stews and
soups while walling for the biscuits
lo hake and boil her rlco or make her
eold puddings while we woro eating.
Wben that stove was working in the
morning you couldn't And a square
Inch of it that wasn't working. As a
result, she planned never lo spend over
balf an hour on ber dinner at night and
hy lho lime thc breakfast dishes were
washed sho was through with her
cooking until then.
Sho usod hor head even in little
things; she'd make one dish do the
work of three. She never washed this
dish until sho was through with it for
good. And she'd llnd tbo timo al odd
moments during her cooking to wash
these dishes ns they came along. If she
spilled anything on tho lloor she stopped right thon and there and cleaned
it up, with tbe result that whon break-
fust was served, the kitchen looked as
shipshape as when she bogan. When
she was busy, she was tho busiest woman you ever saw. Sbo worked wltb
her head, both bands, and her feet. As
a result Instead of llddllng around all
day, when sho was through she was
When she got up in tlie morning she
knew exactly what she had to do for
the day, just how she wus going to do
it and just when she was going to do
it. And you could bank that the things
at night would be done, and be done
just as she had planned. She thought
ahead. That's a great thing to master
in any business.
In my own work, the plan I had out
lined for myself I developed day by
day. At the end of three months I
found that even what little Italian I
had then learned was a help to me.
Thc mere fact that I was studying their
language placed me on a better footing
with my fellows. They seemed to
receive it as a compliment and feel
that I was taking a personal Interest
in them as a race. My desire to practise my few phrases was always a
letter of Introduction to a newcomer.
I talked with them about every
thing—where they came from, what
made them come, what they did before
they came, how long they worked and
what pay they got in Italy, how they
saved to Ret over here, how they se
cured their jobs, what they hoped to do
eventually, where they lived, how large
their families were, how much it cost
them to live and what they ate. I
inquired as to what they liked and
what they disliked about their work;
what they considered fair and what
unfair about the labor and the pay;
what they liked and didn't like about
the foreman. Often I couldn't get any
opinion at all out of them on these
subjects; often It wasn't honest and
often It wasn't intelligent. But as with
my other questioning when I sifted it
all down and thought It over, I was
surprised at how much information I
did get. If I didn't learn facts which
could be put into words, I was left with
a very definite impression and a very
wide general knowledge.
In the meanwhile my note book was
always busy. I kept jotting down
names and addresses witb enough run
ning comment to help mc to recall the
men individually. I wasn't able to locate one out of ten of theso men later,
hut the tenth mun wns worth all the
As the winter advanced and the air
grew frosty and the snow and Ice
camo, the work in a good many ways
was harder. And yet everything con
sldercd I don't know but what I'd
rather work outdoors at zero than at
eighty-live. Except that my hands
got numb and everything was more
dllllcult to handle I didn't mind tho
eold. Thero waa generally exorcise
enough tt» koop tht blood moving.
Wo had a variety of work boforo
spring. After tbe subway Joh I shifted
to a big house foundation and there
met another group of skilled workmen
from whom I learned much. The work
was easier and the surroundings plon-
santer if you can speak of pleasant
surroundings nbout a hole In the
ground. Tho soil was ensler to handle
and wo went to no groat depth. Here,
too, I met a now gang of laborers. I
missed many familiar faces out of the
old crowd and found some interesting
new men. Rafferty hnd gono and I
was sorry. I saw moro or leas of him,
however, during the winter for he
dropped around now and then on Sunday evenings. I don't think he ever
forgot the Incident of the sower gas.
I enjoyed, too, every hour In my
night school. I found here a very large
per cent, of foreigners and thoy were
naturally of the more ambitious typo.
I found 1 hud n great deal to learn even
in lhe mutter of spreading mortar and
using a trowel, lt was really fascinating work and In tho Instructor I
made an Invaluable friend. Through
him 1 was able to arrange my scattered fragment! of information Into larc-
r*r groups. Llttlo by llttlo I told him
something of my plan and ho was
very much Interested In it. Ilo gave
me muny valuable suggestions and
later proved of snb.stantlnl help in
mnre ways than one.
I Become a Citizen
As I said, there wero still many opportunities Which I didn't havo time to
mprove. The three of us seemed to
havo breathed in down here some
spirit which loft us almost feverish In
our desire to learn. Whether it was
tho oppurtunity which bred the desire
or the desire as expressed by all those
newcomers, fresh from tbo shackles of
their uld lives, which created lho opportunity, l leave to the students of
such matters, All I know Is that we
were offered the best In practical Information, such as the trade schools
and tbe night high schools; the best In
art, tho best In music, thc best In the
drama, I am speaking always of the
nowcomer — the emigrant. Sprinkled
in witb theso was the cheaper element
of the native-born, whether of foreign
or of American descent, who spent
Ihelr evenings on the sireet or at the
cheap theatres or in the barrooms,
This class despised tin* whole business.
Incidentally theso were tbu men whu
haunted the bread line, the Salvation
Army barracks, und wero tho Ilrst to
join in any public demonstration
against the'rlch. The women, nol always so much by their own fault, were
the typo which keeps the charitable
ussociutions busy. I'm not saying that
among these there were not often cases
of sheer hard luck. Now and then
sickness played the devil wllh a family
and more often tho cussedness of some
one member dragged down half a dozen Innocent ones with blm. but 1 do say
that when misfortune did come lo this
particular class they didn't buck up to
it as Helen Bennington did or use such
means us were al their disposal to pull
out of it. They just caved In. EJven lu
Iheir dally lives, when things were going well with them, they lost In the
glitter and glare of the cily that, spark
which my middle-class friends lost by
Beeauso tben* was no poetic romance
left in their own lives, tbey despised It
in the lives of others and laughted at it
in art. Whatever went back into the
past, Ihey looked upon scornfully as
"ancient." They lived each day as it
came, with a pride In being up-to-date.
Ah a result, they preferred musical
comedy of thc horse play kind lo real
music; they preferred cheap melodrama to Shakespeare. They lived and
breathed the spirit of the yellow Journals.
I don't know what sort of an education It is the Italians come over here
with, hut they wore a constant surprise
to me in their appreciation of tho best
in art. And it was genuine—it was
simple. I've heard a good many Jokes
about the foolishness of giving them a
diet of Shakespeare and Beethoven, of
Maeterlinck and Mascagnl, hut that
sort of talk comes either from the outsiders or from the Great White Way
crowd. When you've seen Italians not
only crowd In to the free productions
down here but have seen them put up
good money to attend the best theatres; wben you've heard them whistle
grand opera at their work and save
hard earned dollars to spend on It
down town; when you've seen them
crowd the nrt museums on free days
and spend a half dollar to look at some
private exhibition of a fellow countryman's, you begin to think, If you're
honest, that the laugh is on you. They
made me feel ashamed not only because I was ignorant but because after
I become more familiar with the works
of the masters I was slower than they
to appreciate them. In many cases I
couldn't. I didn't flatter myself either
that this was because of my superior
frankness or up-to-dateness. I knew
well enough that lt waa because of a
lack In me and my ancestors.
Scarcely a week passed when there
wasn't something worth seeing or
hearing presented to those people. It
came either through a settlement house
or through the generosity of some interested private patron. However It
came, it was always through the medium of a class which until now had
been only a name to me. This was the
independently well-to-do Amerlcnn
class—the Americans who hud partly
made and partly Inherited their fortunes and had not yet come to misuse
them, lt is a class still active in American life, running however more to
thc professions than to business. Many
of their family names have been fam
iliar in history to succeeding generations since the early settlement of New
England. Tbey were Intellectual leaders then nnd thoy are Intellectual lead
ers now. If I eould with propriety I'd
like to give hero a list of hnlf a dozen
of those men and women who came, In
time, to revive for me my hellef that
after all there still is loft In this country the backbone of a worthy old stock,
But they don't need any such trlvlnl
tribute as I might glvo them. The
thing lhat struck me at once about
tbem was that they were still finding
an outlet for tholr pioneer Instinct not
only In their professions and their
business, but In the Interest they took
In the new pioneer. Shoulder to shoulder witb tho modern Pilgrims they
wen* pushing forward their investigations In medicine, in science, In economics. They wore adapting old laws
to now conditions; they wore developing the now West; thoy were the new
thinkers and  tho now politicians.
1 don't suppose thnt If I had lived
for fifty yenrs under the old conditions
I would have met one of thom. There
wus no meeting ground for us, for we
had nothing In common. I couldn't
possibly Interest thom and I'm suro
I was too busy with my own troubles
to lake nny interest In them even If I
hud known of their existence.
Even down here I resented ut flrst
their presence as nn Intrusion. Whenever I met them I wns Inclined to piny
the ead and there's no bigger cad on
the face of the earth than a working-
man Who Is beginning to feel bis oats.
Hut as 1 watched them and saw how
inmost thoy were and how really valuable their efforts were I was able to
llstingulsh them from still another
irowd who flaunted Ulttlr silly charities
In  the  newspnpers.    Bul  these other
let men and women were nf differ-
t  ijillbro;  they wore tho ones who
established pure milk stations, who encouraged the young men of real talent
lil.e Giuseppe, and who headed all tho
ronl work for good done duwn hero.
Tliey came Into my lifo when 1 needed them; when perhaps 1 was swinging too far in my belief that tho emigrant was the only force for progresy
in uur nation. 1 know they chocked me
in some wild thinking in which 1 w-is
beginning to  indulge.
I Iind 1 have been wandering a littio.
Hut what we thought counted for as
much towards tbe goal as what we did
and oven if the thinking Is only that
nl' one man—and an ordinary man at
tlmt—why, so for that matter was th-
whole venture. I want to say again
thai all I'm trying to do Is to put down
as well as 1 can remember and us well
as I um able, my own acts and
thoughts and nothing but my own. Of
course that means Uuth's and Dick's
luo as far as I understood thom, for
they were a part of my own. I don't
want whut I write to he taken as the
report of an investigation but just as
Uie diary uf ono man's experience.
If I had had tho tlmo I could have
seen at least two of Shakespeare's
plays—presented by amateurs, to bo
suro, but amateurs with talent and enthusiasm and guiiled by professionals.
I could have heard at least a half dozen
-.•.end readers read from the more modern classics. 1 could have listened to
us many concerts by musicians of good
standing, I could have heard lectures
on a dozen subjects of vital interest.
Then there were entertnininenls designed confessedly tu en ter la In. in
addition to these thero were many
more lectures in lho city itself open
froo to the public and which I now for
lbo first time learned about. There
was one series in particular which was
addressed nine a week by men of international renown. It was a liberal
education In Itself. Many of my neighbors attended.

Asia Is the continent of proverbs, lt
has well heen said thai n proverb Is
oue man's wil ami all men's wisdom.
Over on lho other side of lbo world
lu Indln, you meet wilh muny epigrammatic sayings, and one soon comes to
realize tho great Inclination of the
mind to Ihlnk and speak In the groove
uf proverbs.
The Hindi dohn is a strange thing,
lis linos are rhymed, und the rhymed
couplet has lhe balanced form and
condensed message of tho poetry of
Alexander I'ope. Hindi poetry Is
usually printed without separating
words, and as a result the reader may
often make many plays on words, a
performance Ihe Indian mind takes do
light In. Indeed, the more possible
meanings to bo gotten out of a liltle
two-lined proverb the bettor. It Is a
beauty and hot a defect to havo a
plural meaning or be able to be twisted
and turned by a new arrangement of
the letters and words into a proverb
of totally new moaning. Tbe epigram
Is on every man's lips. We are
continually being told "that the little
pot soon boils"; "Flint is cold, but It
contains fire"; "Prayer Is tho pillar of
piety"; "It takes time to be successful,
but no time to lie ruined"; "Do your
work and let the curs bark"; "Threo
men can keop a secret—when two of
them are dead," etc.
In a country where the great percentage is illiterate, motto cards have
not yet achieved their American popularity; but every Indian is himself a
travelling motto card. The older the
saying the better. Tennyson has real
Ized this ln his description of the
proverb: '
Jewels Ave words long
That on  the strotch'd  finger of all
Spnrklo forever.
That electricity must have been
known to the ancients has been many
times asserted, but now comes forward
an electrician in Munich—Mr. Studel-
mann—who has lieen in times past an
archaeologist, to assert that he found
In Egypt, in burled walls, indications
denoting the use of electric lamps. He
claims that Moses brought electricity
from Egypt and that there are Biblical
paragraphs which will bear him out In
his stntements that lightning rods
were In use in the temple of Jerusalem
Stadelmaun believes that thc serpent
of bronze of Moses was nothing moro
or less than an ordinary lightning rod
such as Is in use today. Moses may
yet be known in history as tho "electrician," Instead of the "law-giver."

Map-making Is very old, and has
boon practised by Die most primitive
peoples for many ages. Uud*- scrnlehes
un many rocks In South America are
now Interpreted as maps, Kast
Greenland natives carve maps uut of
wood; American Indians make map-
skclchcs on birch nnd othor barks;
the Marshall Islanders charted the
sailing routes along their coasts long
before they knew of tho white man;
the desert nomad sketches maps In the
sand to illustrate his wanderings, and
nearly evory primitive tribe to-day
makes maps to show mules to hunting-
grounds, animal paths, fisheries, fords,
etc. Thoy know as well ns wo tlo
that maps aro practically a human
necessity; bul we know further that a
good map often places before our eyes
an amount nf accurate geographical
Information thnt might tnkc many
months to dig out of books. Wo may
cite a map of Africa, new over twonly
yenrs old, the largest of lhat continent
produced up to BtflO. Hermann llubc-
nlcht, the compiler, ransacked tho
literature    of    African exploration to
Iind out what each traveller wrote
about the nature of tbe regiuns along
his route; and the map showed those
routes, and marked ulong them thu
forest, grassy, sandy, or tillable
stretches, the water resources, native
settlements, and much other Information gleaned by pioneer explorers. The
map was u lime-saver for students, a
tinu epitome of some phases of tbe
work done by many mon over a long
series of years. The leading geographers uso tho perfected map of to-day
as much as they do books, and often
more. Dr. Hermann Wagner, for example, lias said tliat maps wore his
largesl dependence in lhe production
of his great Lehrbuch der Geographic.
Hut though map-making is very old,
lhe kinds of maps most useful now
have nut very long been made, The
aliases uf a century ago did net con-
taln a tithe of the. information now
expressed on atlas-sheets. Twu generations ago lhe maps used in European schools gave little more tliau a
fow geographical outlines, such as
coasts, political boundaries, rivers, aud
place names; sometimes a few scrnlehes lo represent mountains, hut not always, it was only sixty-throe years
ago lhat Em 11 Sydow published in
Germany the flrst edition of his school
atlas, Iu Which he Introduced Lhe revolutionary Idea tbat school limps should
leii children something more of geography tlmn lhe positions of cousts,
waters, towns and boundaries. Maps
should picture as well tbc mountains,
valleys, and plains, Cartographic expression should be given to the land
forms, and maps should help the
teacher to show what the surface of
Ihe oni'th Is really like.
This fundamental Idea Ims ever since
been steadily developing, Matt symbolism has wonderfully grown, (ill It Ih
to-day fully adequate far the graphic
expression of a large variety of facts;
ami, host of all, the -European map-
makers, by Iheir use of contours of
elevation, hachuros, colors, ami light
and   shade   effects,   have   so   perfected
methods of showing Ihe diverse forms
of Ibe earth's surface lhat even on a
small-scale map of the Swiss Alps, for
example, we may see before us Ihe
wonderful complex of high mountains,
deep valleys, snow-tlelds, und glaciers.
Wc may see the birth-place of lhe
Rhine, whose glacial brooklets Issue
from an Ice mass high up on the
slopes; the little lake perched far
above the valley in a small depression
filled by tho melting ieo of the great
Rhone glacier. These atlas-sheets are
small, and nature is large; Imt the tine
art of generalising land forms has
been so perfected by European cartographers that, though a great many
details must be omitted, still the essentials of form are preserved, so that
he who knows how to road maps may
easily Iind tbe essential truth In the
map picture.
Tho sclentitlc map, so faithfully depicting the manifold aspects of tbe
earth, has helped us to an interesting
discovery. Wo know now thut while
the great object of goography Is to
describe the earth's surface, lungauge
alone Is lnsutllcient for this purpose.
Only in the most general terms can
speech draw a picture of the faco of
tho earth. If wo go Into detail and
try in words to glvo a complete description, the picture is vague and Ihe
mind cannot fully grasp It. The goo-
graphical description must always be
associated with the map picture In
ordor to Impress upon the mind a clear
and orderly Idea of lhe various phase
of Iho earth's surface.
If we had before us a map of the
world showing what Is known of Its
surface forms and other geographical
features, on a uniform scale so large
lhat all essential detail should stand
out for us lo rend, we might justly regard it us a monumental achievement,
a blessing conferred upon ns by modern civilization. It would give a true
and clear picture of our earth as far
as we have studied Its nspects. With
the hundreds of sheets drawn on the
same map projection nnd scale, using
lhe same system of colors and other
symbols lo express facts, it would be
easy lo compare every land surface
with every other and to note all Ihelr
similarities and contrasts. The map
would bo a short cut to accurate geographical Information, mado roady for
lhe use of alt peoples.
We shall have such a map before a
great many years. The leading nations
are co-operating tu produco It. The
work is advancing every day even in
lands thut are remote, ln July this
year plans were published In Germany
showing tlmt thirteen contiguous
sheets of the map. on the scale and
projection selected, have been made by
European governments of parts of
Russian und Chinese Turkestan, Persia, and Afghanistan; twenty-two
sheets of parts of ("hlna, Korea, French
I iido-Chi nu. and Japan; and eight
Sheets covering the Bahamas and lhe
Greater Antilles. Theso are not thc
llnlshed sheets, but are the basis upon
which the rules adopted by thc International Conference In London In November, 1009, as to coloration, tho
spelling of place names, and olher de-
mils, will be expressed to make Ihem
strictly conform with all Ihe other
sheets In the great standard map of
(he world. Frauce and Groat Britain
are mapping tholr African colonies on
the required scale. Dr. Henry Gannett, Geographer of the United States
Geological Survey, has prepared a
number of these shoots, embracing
parts of our Eastern, Central, and
Western States; and he was a prime
mover In the convening of the London
International Conference that at last
placed thc project upon a practical
The Idea of a standard map of the

brochl Penck at the International Geographical Congress, Bein, In 1891. He

miles to an Inch. Tho project was
heartily approved by this and later
congresses. Committees wore appointed
lo promote (he movement, and Great
Britain. Germany, and France began
lo make maps on the required scale.
Little practical progress, howovor, was
made till afler Dr. Gannett reported
that thu United Slates government
could nut publish tho sheets he was
preparing been use no agreement hud
been reached as to tho color scheme
and other essential details, No general
plan had been adupted for the uniform
production of those map-sheets. He
therefore presented, through Dr. Day,
of Washington, a recommendation to
the international Geographical Con-
gross at Geneva, in lHUS. to appoint a
commission to work out a uniform plan
for producing tho map.
This plan waa prepared by lhe Geneva Congress, and it was decided to
submit il to a conference of the map-
making nations, which was accordingly
convened by the British government
in London, in November, 1900. The
conference was completely -successful,
its decisions were Una), and the map-
makers of all nations were at last In
a position to co-operate In currying
out lho plan,
This fortunate result involved mutual concessions, but the plan as perfected was heartily and unanimously
adopted. Greenwich Is to ho the initial

No boy Is forced to work; but if he
does not choose to Work, then he does
not cat! lt occasionally takes hipi
some days to realize lhat this is a fact
and nol au abstract thoory with which
ho Is confronted; bul ho is taught the
fact by actual hunger, and then he goes
to work. Thore are ample opportunities fur him to earn his own living, but
the work is real and hard, and Is paid
for in proportion to its value, each
worker standing on his individual merits as shown by his skill and Industry;
the hoys themselves insist on a course
whicli develops and rewards Individual
efficiency, Drones and Idlers are not
tolerated; tbey are allowed to quit
work if they wish, and if they work
badly they are discharged; and then
they find that starvation Is not very
far distant.
Newcomers often fall to understand
just what Is ahead of them; but it
takes them only a vory few days to

practical kind for boys nnd girls alike;
each, when he or she leaves the He-
public, can begin a wage-earning career without the smallest break. In addition, the ones with special aptitudes
can train themselves for all kinds of
special careers; and all alike are turned out with special training In the
applied principles of democratic citizenship of tho most healthy type.

These were words to take a maiden's

"All, except me."
Miss Budd looked as If she hud already flunked.
"It does seem as if we had known
Dr. Alardice a. quarter of a century;
doesn't It, Rosebud?" Thus Alice,
coming to her friend's rescue.
"Rosebud," echoed Dr. Alardice, inadvertently. Then, he went on with
his quiz. "Well, Miss Budd," said he,
"supposing wo blindfold you; turn thc
lights low; go out of the room for
ten minutes or so, to give you u chance
to collect your senses; then come in,
one ut a time, and see if you can tell
which of us has touched you. Sit with
your hands on your knees, palms upward. Don't move a finger. Call the
name aloud; so that those outside cun
hear you."
Seeing that thero was no getting out
of it. Rose agreed to everything and
requested Alice to blindfold her; then,
ln turn, her brother and her mother.
None would do it, all being of the opinion that Dr. Alardice was conducting
the experiment. So, in the end, he did
the blindfolding, and did it thoroughly,
for thoroughness sake, taking his time
ubout it. He was the lust to leave
the room.
To Rose, alone, vainly trying to compose her thoughts, the ten minutes
seemed so many hours.
At last, however, she heard thc unmistakable rustle of taffeta, caught a
whiff of a fashionable cologne—a bot-
lleful of whieh she hud that very duy
presented to a dear friend—and felt a
soft cheek—nothing in the ear—laid
uguinst hers.
"Alice!" she shouted.
Again, tho rustle of taffeta, then silence for tho time It takes a woman's
heart to beat two hundred; then, a
heavy footfall, the squeak of a man's
shoes; odor of tobacco, very faint; a
hand (right; no ring) on her right
hand. Her knees trembled; she drew
her hand away—which wus against tho
rule—and. In a voice neither very loud
nor scientific nor steady, cried: "Dr,
Tho squeak died away. All was
still. The swish-swish of skirts; no
taffeta; no perfume; a hand (the left;
ring on third finger) pressed lightly on
her left hand.
Silence. A man's step, quick, no
squeak; odor of tobacco, very strong;
lips (no moustache, no beard) ever so
Indifferently on forehead.
Rose did not call the name    aloud
she  raised  her  hands,  clasped    them
about the man's neck, and kissed him
audibly on the mouth.
A mar of laughter wont up. The
subject tore the bandage from her eyes.
A smooth •faced stranger, In her brother's smoklng-Jackel, stood beforo her.
Buddy, In Dr. Alardlce's frock, oat, and
Alloc, In Mrs. Budd's black cashmere,
were dancing up nnd down ln tho centre of tho room; while her mother, in
Alice's blue silk gown and taffeta petticoat, was smiling at her from the
doorway. All at once, something In
tho stranger's eyes struck Rose as familiar.     She sprang to her feet.
"Dr. Alardice!" she exclaimed, "what
have you done with your beard? How
dare you! You had no right to do It!
I just hate you!"
"You did It yourself!" shrieked Alice,
and doubled up. "You did It yourself

For a thousand miles northwestward
from Seattle your steamer traverses
un almost unbroken chain of inland
channels and harbors, sheltered from
the open ocean by a long lino
of Islands. First it Is Puget
Sound und the Straits of Juun
de Fuea; then the British Colum
blan waters; und then, after some
hundreds of miles, you cross the inter
national boundary and enter south
eastern Alaska. Everywhere the walls
of these chunnels 'and straits und
sounds are steep und high, nnd generally thoy are clothed to the timber-
line with forest growth, thin und scattering in the exposed places, but dense
and heavy in some of tbc rep-rooston*,
und almost always enough to cover the
dull gray and brown of the rocks. Now
und then you pass a snowy peak, or
catch a distant glimpse of the high
ranges—splendid battlements of white
between the blue nnd the green. If
the sun shines, It is gloriously beautiful. If It doesn't, tbc world Is a study
In gray—gray sky above and gray
water below, with gray Islands und
headlands and mountains coming out
of the gray mist before you, drifting
slowly by, and vanishing Into the gray
void astern.
By and by your vessel swings out
through a narrow rocky portal, and
suddenly you are on the open sea. That
long, long wall of Islands that has
stood between you and the ocean has
come to nn end at lust, and to port
lies the whole Pacific, while to starboard is one of the most cruel coasts
in the world a wild confusion of
rocks, snow-fields, forests, marshes.
Jagged mountains. The greatest glaciers on thc globe lie along this shore,
and somo of them llow straight down

Three hundred miles of this sort of
thing, and then a long, narrow island
thrusts itself some twenty miles out
into the ocean, ut right angles with
the coast, ending In the great

with the Pinnacle Rock standing guard
in front. You swing round it, and before you Ho thc low, fiat shores of
that notorious sheet of water, Controller Bay, with steep, wooded hills
on one side, a huge glacier on the
other, and In the background the white
wall of the Chugach Mountains.
The nearest wharf nt which a steamer can He up is at Cordova, on an arm

nway as the aeroplane files und a hundred and twenty by aea; but ten mites
northwestward from thc entrance of
tbe bay Is tho little town of Katalla,
with an open roadstead In front nnd

Is rough, your steamer makes no attempt to land you, but carries you on

tn as close to the town us she dares

you ashore.
Is it worth while to keep a dog? A
