The delegation was nsked lo lake up a
position at one end of the .school
grounds while with oul previous
warning Mr. Barber sounded the firo
gong. The result was a revolution to
the visitors. Almost instantly the
scholars appeared iu perfect order
at the exits and at a smart slop
vacated the building ami formed in
divisions on the school grounds.
Tils' whole proceeding was the acme
of Order ami decorum, there was
not the slightest evidence of confusion or oxoitcmont,   while   lbc

The diplomat had forgottoil what bo
had been saying. He was covortly
studying tlie features of lhe man Just
beyond Miss Kilsou. The face was
turned toward the girl, giving him a
full view, and ll was a steady, Imperturbable face. Now, introduced as
raconteur, he realized that In* must say

told had he been uninterrupted, hut ll
was a story that appealed to his diplomatic taste, because he could watch
the other face as he told it and see
what Ihe other face might betray. This
newcomer had jarred him from his
usual poise. Now, he fancied it was
the other's lurn  to be startled.
"It was," he said casually, "the narrowest escape from death that I hav*1
seen- and the man who escaped was
an American."
As Saxon raised his eyes, with polite
interest, to those of the speaker, he became aware that tliey held for him a
message of almost sardonic challenge.
He felt Ihat the story-teller was only
ostensibly addressing the table; that
the man was talking at lum. as a
prosecutor talks at the defendant
ihough be may direct himself to the
jury. Tho sense that brought this
realization was perhaps telepathic. To
the other eyes and ears, there were
only the manner of Hie raconteur and
tlie impersonal lone of generality.
"It occurred at Puerto Frio," said
tbe South American, reminiscent Iy. He
paused for a moment, ami smiled at
Saxon, as though expecting a sign of
confusion upon the mention of tbe
name, but be mad only courteous In-
Interest and Impenetrability,
"This countryman of yours," lie went
on smoothly, his Knglish touched and
softened by the accent of tlie foreigner,
"bad indulged in Hie dangerous, though
it would seem alluring, pastime of promoting a revolution, Despite liis unscrupulous character, he was possessed

him Uu* verdict of deatli. 1 have no
doubt that by Hi" laws of war it was
;i just reward, yet so many men are
guilty of peddling revolutions, and tbe
demand for such wares is so great in
some quarters, thai he had my sympathy." Tiie speaker bowed slightly,
as though conceding a point to a gallant adversary. It chanced lhat he was
looking directly at Saxon as be bowed.
The painter became suddenly conscious Hint he was according an engrossed attention, and that liu1 storyteller was narrowly watching Ids
lingers as (hey twisted the stem of his
Bauterne glass. The lingers became
at once motionless.
"He bore himself so undeniably well
when he went out to ills place against

Ribero evenly, "tbat one could not
withhold admiration, The picture remains with me. Thc sun on the yellow

Onco more, the speaker broke off, us
though lost lu retrospection of something well-remembered. Beyond the
girl's absorbed gaze, he saw that of the
painter, and bis dark eyes for an Instant glittered wiih something like
direct accusation,

raconteur halted in his narra
tive
"Please go on," begged Duska, in a
low voice.   "What happened?"
The foreigner smiled.
"Tliey   tlre.l."     Then,   as   he  saw   Uie
slight shudder of Duska's while shoulder, he supplemented: "Put each

thoughl fully, letting his eyes drop

where Saxon's right hand lay—"one

Then, a half-whlmslcal smile crossed Hlbero's somewhat saturnine features, for .Miss Pllson hud dropped her
napkin on Saxon's side, and, when the
painter had stooped to recover it, he
did nol again replace lhe hand on the
table.
"Before ho could !»■ fired on a second

if th.* her., of Rlbero's narrative was
a   malefactor, at   least   he  was a   male
factor with the sympathy of Mr, Boll-

n distinctly audible sigh nf rollof at

should ever be thrown togother again,
he would know me . . . ami I have
often  wished  i  could  romember hi in

As he finished, llie speaker was holding Saxon wltb Ills eyes, and had a
question iu his glance that seemed to
call for some expression from tlie other.
Saxon bowed with a smile.
"It is an engrossing story."
"J think." said Duska suddenly, almosl critically, "the Ilrst part was so
good that it was a pity t<> spoil ii with
lhe rest."
Senor Ribero smiled enigmatically
into liis wine-glass.
"I fear, senorila. that Is thc sad difference between fiction aud history.
My tale is a true one."
"At all events," continued the girl
with vigor, "he was a bravo man. That
is enough to remember. I think it 18
heller to forget the rest."
it seemed to Ribero that the glance
Saxon flashed on ber was almost the
glance of gratitude,
"Whal was his name?" she suddenly
demanded.
"He called himself—at that time—
George Carter," Ribero said slowly,
"but gentlemen In the unrecognized
pursuits quite frequently have occasion tb change their names. Now, it
is probably something else,"
After tlic dinner had ended, while the
guests* fell into groups or waited for
belated carriages, Saxon found himself
standing apart, near lhe window. It
was open on the balcony, and tlie man
felt a sudden wish for lhe quiet freshness of tlle outer air on his forehead.
He drew back the curtain, and stepped
across the low sill, then halted as he
realised thai he was not alone.

for its numbers on newcomers, although tlie village Kossuki contributed
recruits. Any one could Join, as rank
and riches were despised, and nil ha

follows: chastity, the orthodox creed,
allegiance to Russia anil the south
Itusslan dialect. No reference or inconvenient, questions of his past were
asked of the Intending Kosaak, lie
simply weiil to the elected chief and,
after a brief greeting, was shown to
his place in one of the "kureni." or
hlg huts. "Here is thy home, three
paces long nnd two paces wide; and
When thou shall die we will make it

They had good times, though, in the

Drink was plentiful, and also tobacco.
Great songs were sung and Ibere was

CROW  COURTS
There are Instances on record tn
which jackdaws, rooks, and crows
have heen seen to hold what might lie
called a formal court for the trial and
punishment of offenders. in other
words, these creatures have something
like a regular system of "public justice." In the northern parts of Scotland and in ibe Faroe islands extraordinary meetings of crows arc occasionally  known  to occur.
They colled In great numbers, as
if they had all been summoned for tbe
occasion.     A   tew  of  the  Mock   sit  With
drooping beads and others seem as
grave as judges, while others again
are exceedingly active and noisy. In
the course of about an hour they disperse, and it is nol uncommon, after
they have flown away, to find one or
two dead ones.
These meetings will sometimes continue for a day or two before their object, whatever it may be, is accomplished. Crows continue to arrive
from all quarters during the session.
As soon as they have all arrived a
very general racket ensues and shortly
after the whole fall upon one or two
individuals and put them to death.
When thc execution has been performed they quietly disperse.
An army officer In India relates tbnt
while sitting on a veranda bo snw
three or four crows come antl perch
upon a neighboring house. Soon a
gathering from all quarters occurred
until thc roof of the goard-houso was
blackened  witb  tbem.
Thereupon a prodigious clatter ensued. It was plain that a palaver was
going forward, some or its participants, more eager than others, skipping about most energetically. Tho officer became much Interested and nnr-
rowly watched the proceedings, all
within a dozen ynrds of him. After
much cawing and clamor. Hie whole
groups suddenly rose Into the ulr and
circled round half a dozen of Ihelr fellows, one of whom had clearly been
told olT for punishment, for the five
repeatedly attacked it in quick succession, allowing no opportunity for it
to escape, which ll was trying to do,
until Uuy had cast It fluttering to the
ground.
The oillcer rushed forward to pick
up the bird, lie succeeded only In
touching R, for it wriggled away from
bis grasp ami flew, greatly crippled
and close to the ground, into some
bushes, where he lost sight of It.
All the otber crows, after circling
round the officer and chattering in anger, as be thought, flew away, on his
resuming bis scat. In the direction
taken by their victim.
SHOEINC HORSES
Certain naturalists have ventured
(he opinion tbat horses do not need
shoeing under any circumstances, Tills
ins reasonable when we reflect that
it Is only within n few centuries that
the praelicc or shoeing bus lieen followed. Put the horse was domostl-
tletl earlier Hum we can  learn from
history, and it is not likely that the
roads we're any less stoop or free from
stones than tbey are now. There are
many countries In which horses am)
mules nn* driven over the hardest and
feepest  roads wllho'.l ever Wearing n
hoe.
II may be questioned whether our
method of setting Hie shoe Is the very
liest In iho world. Tin- bl nek smith
lakes Hie horse's foot In his lap and,
holding it there hy main strength, fits
and mills the shoe. This always seems
tiresome  operation  for both  beast
ml workman. The want i>r a common   consciousness   belWeeli    Hie   two
renders the weight ami the support
unsteady.
Tlie same method is not pursued the
world over. In Russia tbe smiths cm-
ploy a method that Is decidedly quaint.

A   TRACK-LAYING   RECORD
It Is to th** American engineer and
contractor that the world is indebted
for its first lessons in rapid construction of railroads, ami particularly in
rapid track laying. The lesson, as
taught on our Western prairies, has
led to systematic methods of railroad
construction, particularly with a view
to time and labor saving, in other
i ountries where extensive lines arc being built. Thus, we notice that recently a record was made of C 1-3
mile.-* of main track and 1,200 feet of
siding laid with rails in one day. The
work was done under llritish engineers
on the Baro Kma Railway in Northern   Nigeria.

AUTOTOMY
Lizards, spider*, butterflies, and
other creature! of the animal world
leave a fragment nf tholr bodies wlib
ihe enemy whon making iheir oscapo, I
spontaneously   breaking    n    member
When  seized   by   one  of   Ihelr  append-
ages, Ono drops a tall, another a foot i
<>r a wing, by the peculiar biological
faculty known as autolomy, ami ma
confined to a small number of crott-
lures, Autolomy is a faculty axerelsod
In nearly all Un* animal orders, ll Is
a faet as common In nal ure an (be fall
of tbe loaves nr ihe ripening of a groin,'
Tin* starfish drops fragmonts of its
limbs ami easily repairs their damages,
Certain nnnollds are so fragtlo (hat
Ihey cannot be taken In sueh a form
aa to furnish specimens; wben chased
they divide themselves into so many
fragments that nn hb-a nf their original
appearance can he nbtalned for ref* i'«
ence.   This singular means of defense;
escaping from danger. Evasive autolomy is practised by certain families
of the cricket group; other saurlans
than the lizard iiraetl.se spontaneous
amputation of the tall; ami when ln
desperate need some of the mammals
run away, leaving the skins of their
tails  tn  their pursuers.
n is a remarkable fact that among
sped les  endowed  with  the  power  of
evasive autolomy lhe part nf Ihe body
whieh i.i dropped, or can I»* dropped,
In lhe part easiest for a foe tn seize.
Nn one would think of attempting to
seise a lizard by anything but its tail
■ a* a spider by anything tail a lei;, li
has been known more than balf a
century that, though always a defensive in.-a us. autotomy is a faculty
givon in view of protecting the Individual against unfavorable meso-
logtcal circumstances.
If sea-urchins or other:- of their
species an* confined lu an aquarium
where ihey suiTcr from hunger they
use a singular means of preserving
their lives, They spontaneously separate parts of the body by strangulation,
if its hunger is nf long duration the
animal conies nut nf bis ordeal with
little more than a head and tentacles.
Another rase of defensive autolomy
clearly distinct from the evasive form
of the same faculty Is that of tlie crab.
If the elaw of lhe crab Is Violently
excited- pinched, crushed, sectioned.
or burned* the claw abruptly drops off.
une Individual) when under observation, dropped eight claws one afler the
other ami also two pincers,   Bul tho
same crab when held by one elaw did
not aiiempi to autotomlso thai daw.
though by doing so he could have
freed himself. Evidently he dropped
bts olghl legs under the Impulse **r >i
frenzy nf agony or of fear, His faculty
-if autotomy, was given !■* him to b.
used as a means of preventing suffer-
Ing; nr possibly ii*- dropped his li gs
when persistently persecuted, because
Instinct <rkit] him thnl he bad It lu his
powor i*» preserve himsolf from a fatal
hemorrhn       if a gros ssectlon of the
log   of   a   crab   Is   eat   by   forcopS   the
danger of hemorrhage is groat; if tho
leg is cul at ibe automatic point thoro
is uo dangor of hemorrhage, The animals commonly supposed tn be Incapable   of   Buffering   have   been   endowed
by nature wllh means of preventing or
putting an end lo their suffer I ims.
When exposed to a temperature of fifty
dogreos, sea-asters spontaneously drop
their arms. Man has un means nf
knowing what ihe shell-fish would do
could he apply autolomy to his vital
parts when dropped Into water at llm
boiling-point, In somo eases autolomy   may   be    a   means    of   defense
against   parasites,   certain   deep-soa
Star-flsh observed have dropped an
arm Invaded by disease.
In really ovnsle autmnony- for Instance, ilu* autotomy commonly practised by Inseds—the faculty of regeneration may fall nr be lacking, In
eases where the mutilation Is practised to defend the organism the faculty
nf regeneration is shown in full vigor.
'I'he autotomlcal evisceration practised

Both organs are regenerated,
ln true autotomy the point of dlv -
slon Is decided by iho muscular and
nervous .systems. Some insects preface
autotomy by a strong contraction of
tbc muscles ruling lhe parts to be mutilated. The claws of crabs are provided Willi membranes which prevent
hemorrhage, in the domestic spider
the preventive mechanism Is remarkable for its perfection, and thu instrument used in Ihe mutilation Is equally
so. The instrument Is a little blade
which, when worked by autotomntlc
contraction sections the nerve or the
claw and the extending muscle of tha
femur at the same fraction of ,-iti Instant. Autotomy Is always a purely
reflex ncLlon; or a. i-oflex action da-

CHEMISTRY  AND  PERFUMES
The p.-rfume Industry dates from the
early days nf the world. Perfume-
makers used tu extract their odors
from plants, flowers, and fruits without altering the essences. The business
nf the manufacturer began and ended
there and his art was limited to skilfully commingling the different extracts sn as to obtain perfumes. Wilh
the progress of chemistry it became
possible lo make synthetic perfumes.
The must important synthetic discoveries have been made within the
last thirty-five years. In 1N76 the synthesis of the active principle of vanilla
was made. A few years later heliotru-
plno was obtained by the- oxidization
of a by-product—a species of camphor
waste. Terplneol, or terplnol. Is one
of tlu* essential constituents of many
perfumes; lilac, ltly-of-the-valley, sy-
rlriga, Cape jessamine, etc Speaking
chemically, it is a near relation uf the
essence of turpentine; one molecule uf
essence of turpentine added to one
molecule nf water gives terplneol.
Porftime-manufacturers use different
means of producing terplneol. Among
the different patented processes are

CENSORIOUS CENSOR
Th.' dramatic censur is once more in
the exact centre nf the English stage,
and with the relentless limelight turned full Upon him. His name Is Mr.
Charles Brookfield, and once upon a
time In his Kiddy and Irresponsible
youth he wrote a play which was said
J by a committee of maiden aunts to be
! improper. That play Is now lu bo revived, but Mr. Urooklleld eau do nothing In the matter, since It Is uuw beyond his jurisdiction, while tu make
I matters worse lie Is nut allowed by
his official position to reap any benefit
• frum a dramatic performance. All he
can do i.s tu write Indignant letters tn
jthe newspapers protesting against the
demoralization <>f the stage as exem-
! pulled by his own play. Another cruel
| juke upun the censor has been played
by Lawrence Cohen, whose one-act
play was refused a license. .Mr. Cohen
i changed the name of the play, made
one or twu insi*i,rnilb-ant alterations in
the cast and submitted It once more to
I the censor, who promptly passed it.
Now Mr. Cohen makes known the fads
•and delicately draws attention to the
j new name of his play, which is "Quits."
j A play by Sir William Gilbert was
once compelled tn pass under the har-
row. I'r. Butler, when head master of
j Harrow, made It a rule lhat all pieces
| In be acted within the schnlasllc corral must be submitted to him fnr approval. Among them was "The Palace
nf Truth," wherein the hero says to
th.- heroine, "Meet nie outside the garden j.rate at nine o'clock tonight."   Dr.
Butler's censorial pen erased thi  vrorda
"at   nine   o'clock   tonight"   .ind   substituted  "at   three  o'clock  thi** aft-r-
noon."    The  later hour was -
considered    tun    suggestive    tot
youthful mind.

Theso crossings nre two high nnd

In light rigs nud nutuinohiles. The
wide crossings nf mure recont construction are it decided improvement nud nre the proper sort.

An order for 250,000 fruit boxes
bus just beon placed by lho fanners'
exchange, of Kelowna, llritish Columbia. This is the largest order
for fruit boxes lhat hns ever been
given and is a clear indication of
tho phenomenal increase in fruit production wliieli 1ms taken plnce during lhe pusl few yenrs. Kolow'llll
is rapidly becoming moro nml more
the cenler of the fruit industry, and
il is slated Unit tlie largest fruitand
vegetable cannery is now under construction nl that point. Four years
ngn '211,000 fruit boxes were sulli-
cii'iit lu handle tlie Kelowna fruit
crop,
City ratepayers should give earnest
consideration to lhe proposal to
purchase the water system of thc
Klk Creek Company. Tlie proposed
purchase differs from n loan for
street improvement or oilier like
propose, (which is a gnnd Investment, and whicli brings full returns
indirectly,) ill that il mortgages thc
credit of tlie City until the system
pays for itself ill real money frnin
its earnings ns n going business
concern, The agreement with the
Company expires iu a yenr or two
hence,tl iiupnn.v hns tin' oxolusivc
franchise of thc valley, tho system
is yearly Incoming more indispensable and profitable, so that nl tliat
time lhe city will have lobo pleased
ts. accept such terms as the Company may dictate, and which major may uot be thoughl exorbitant.
It is n certainty that rates will not
be less than al present. Even
now the price charged the cily for
water and hydrants really prohibits
adequate (ire protection liceausc of
the fact thai hydrants nie sn
widely separated. The Free Press
is lirmly of the opinion thnt such n
necessity ns the water supply should
lie owned nnd controlled by the
people, who are dependent ii]xin it.
The priee and terms of purchase
cannot be expected to lie as favorable at any future period us they
are at this juncture. The purchase
of the system looks like a sound
nnd wise move on thc part of the
City, and a move we hope to see
supported strongly at tlie polls on
Friday June 2>S. The scheme of
financing the deal is to mortgage
the system for (110,000 and raise by
! In md issue J100.000 on tlie credit of
the City, mnking a total of 9210,000
the price necessary to handle the
system. The ratepayer is asked to
endorse thc by-law t<> raise tho
$100,000. The system is paying a
gnnd dividend at present nud   will
yearly become n groator asset. A
public meeting will possibly bo
called for Monday evening when
the details of the mailer will lie

Porfecl condition in lho horse Is evidenced by a bright, clear eye, a brilliant coat, high spirits, and mettle, and
sullicient llesh to "round him out" well,
but not enough to interfere with his
action or usefulness, A horse in this
ci md it inn. exercised regularly, and
gradually accustomed lo wurk. Is the
kind of animal that will stand most
work this spring.
Tin* in.in who succeeds in breeding
draft horses must ever keep iu mind
six.-, quality, feet, legs and action.
These an- all utility points. The markets demand horses weighing 1,700
pounds and upwards, tbat have good
body conformation, large feet of good
texture, strung, clean bone; large,
sound joints, heavy muscular development,  combined   wiih  g l   straight
snappy action. Such bursts command
high prices, and are very scarce. The
statistics for the year toil show thut
only one horse out of every twenty
sold at uur leading horse markets filled
the hill. This is surely a gnnd line of
work to pursue for many years to
come. The vast majority of our farmers mako a serious mistake when they
sell their guod draft males to go to
the cities. A goml draft marc is worth
twice us much on any farm, if she is
used for work and breeding purposes,
as she will sell for in any horse market, nnly in.ires of good weight, body
conformation, and absolutely sound,
should l.e retained for breeding pur-
puses. It is very Important that the
stallion used should he sound, drafty,
stand well on his feet and legs, short
and straight in his back, heavily muscled, and show good disposition, us Indicated by width and flatness of head
hetwecn    the   eyes.        Avoid    unsound.
small-footed, light-boned, crooked-legged or shallow-bodied stallions.

So the outcast hurried to First Sergeant Bailor. Bailor, a prlK^ish man,
frowned, as If be were contaminated at

regarded us a poltroon, a coward, a nobody.
"Sergea t." said Little Malone, "I

Uullor laughed outright and boisterously. He beckoned for Corporal

"Listen to this!" lie bawled, so that

broken tin- news that he saw two hundred bolo-men a few minutes ago!"
Perhaps the men of Company ll
thought they were gaining in favor
with their lirst sergeant when they
joined in the laughter.
Little Malone reddened. Tbey didn't

"Then," requested tbe outcast, "may

"Xo!" came quickly from the sergeant's lips. "He's in the surf, and he

Little Malone turned away, his Angers working nervously at his perspiration-damped cartridge-belt He mumbled an Imprecation. Sergeant Bailor
beard it.
"You're under arrest in quarters, my
man!" he said haughtily. "Put up
your tent and gel Into it!"
'•All right, sir."
The utter calmness of the little man's
reply angered the sergeant.
"Don't tulk back to me!" he commanded loudly.
"All right sir."

Tliey an* so low that one must crawl on

.Malone halved with Big Malom*.
It was almosl dark. Lying on his
woolen blankot In one of the little canvas houses to oscape stinging ants, the
soldier called a coward saw the Ilrst
sergeant place 0 camp guard of two.
ft was the common form of running
guard—tllO men were tn uwuke a relief ufter two hours on duty, and so on
throughout (he night
Little Malono shuddered. Two men

wily Soldiers of wily Luk Han could
steal along in lhe grass, from ono palm
to another, nnd sllone*_ these men with
a few quick strokes of their deadly
bolos without waking one of tho company in tin* lillle row of shelter-tents.
Then thero would he a carnage, a
shambles. The soldiers of Luk Han
would hack to death the sleepers within three flying minutes. It would be a
wholesale massacre.    It could bo noth

wide-awake bola men against a hundred sleeping Americans,
Big Malone crawled in beside bis
lent-niatc.
"Hoy," said ho, "Is that straight about
tlie gugusV"
"Vou won't wait long to Iind out,"
Little Malone answered sourly.
"Aw, see here," retorted llie bigger
man, "l don'l menu lo say you haven't
onough sense to know when you see
two hundred men. You know I don't.
Hut, kid, they might have heen copra-

"Ask the Borgcuilt," said Little Malone.
"Ili-'s got il lu for you now," Hlg Malone uahl, Ignoring the other's suggestion, "if I wen- you, I'd Hy to got

lu hla iuni, the lesser mun Ignored

"As soon as It gels dark," he declared, "I'm going out and form a ono-

only way I can think of lo save tbls
fool company. Then maybe 1 can redeem mysolf!"
"H's nol In line with orders," objected lllg Malone, frowning al the thought
of a mnn losing a whoio night's sleep
bocauso of a sen ro* story, "l wouldn't
do it."
"Hut   I   will, jusi   the same."
"You're under arrest In quarters."
Lime Malone swore under his breath,
"Lei  tliat  go,      H's  nothing to you.
I'll   lake   Ihe   consequences.     I'm   going
to gel up in a palm and watch, Tbo

spoi thom before Ihey get to yuu fellows."
"Don't do it, hoy," growled iti:; Malone; "you need rest."
Again Little .Malone .swore under his
breath. Even Ihls man believed it was
a scare-story.
"Hut," be asked anxiously, "you von't
tell I've gone, will you,"
"No."
"I'm much obliged lo you," said Little
Malone. "Anl I've got a notion lhat
you. and tho company lo a man, will
lie much obliged to me beforo /ou ueo

"I wouldn't mhid being oblivd to

did   believe  In  you,   boy—except,   I'm
afraid   you   are   a   little   too   y.UUg   to
Judge hetween natives and soldiers,"
"If you believe In nie," Little .Malone
shot hack, "why don't you give me a
fair deal about tbls? Why don't you
sneak to Captain Blflnch und tell him
whnt 1 claim to have seen".'"
"Bailor would find it out, and he'd
never forget it. You see. I'm in line
for a corporal's place, son."
"Corporal's place!" Little Malone
snorted. "You'ro not fit for It. It's a
pity you ure not us big inside is you

ranking orders, you know. Uood-
nlghtl"
As Big Malone turned over, composing himself for sleep. Little Malone
Watching 'ne guard closely, cript
from the shelter-tent. Making no
sound, he crawled on his hands and
knees slowly, carefully, drugging his
rifle by the muzzle, through the grass
tliat reached to his eyes, and after five
minutes was a hundred feet from the
neatest sentry. Then he rose and
skulked olT like a thief in tbe gloom of
the grove of palms. He went a quarter
of u mile iu the direction in which stood
the thickets thut concealed the men of
Luk Ban. There lie laboriously climbed a tall but leaning palm. His rifle
he was forced to leave on the ground.
Au hour passed, and tlie only sounds
that broke the stillness of the tropical
night were the gentle swish of the
slender leaves uoout him as they
swayed in the breeze of the near-by
sea, the occasional chirp of a night-
bird, aud. now and then, the guttural
wak-wak of u dying marsh heron.
Slowly the moon rose over tbe hill at
whose base Litlle Malom* had seen the
ribbon ot bolo-men creeping.   He knew,
did .Malolie, that the attack would come
shortly, as the moon at its zenith or
near to it, would make great the danger nf lieing seen.
So Litlle Malolie hegnn to watch
more keenly, looking for and expecting
every second the two hundred figures in
dirty-while Ue knew Ihey would
come creeping;, stooping, dodging from
lice lo lice, their long, hacking knives
rcaily for the work of dealing out a ter-
tlole death to men who slepl and
dreamed with childlike smiles of home
nnd violets and forget-me-nots uml
moonlight on pIono*keys and golden
hair un i gray,  Several palm tops were
In the way; he swum*, oulwurd, now to
bis right now lo his left trying to see.
And so -"iiiOther hour passed, und the
yellow, hanging moon rose higher in
tbe pale, silent sky, aud siill Little Malone watched keenly. lie knew they
would come.
And they did.
Cautiously they came, and slowly,
rooplnj, oreoptngi making no more
noise than so many dirty-white spirits,
yet advancing as the turn of the earth
on lis axis. Ono on the ground could
not huve seen ihem until tbey were
Within a few yards of hhn.
Wltb i\ smile that was grim. Little
Malone begun tu descend.      He locked
thin, weary legs about the slim, gray
trunk and slid quickly to the ground.
Bvldently the bolo*>mon did nut see
him. Tben, bending low, he run buck
toward the camp of the sleeping com*
puny. The guard halted him drowsily;
be rushed hy him and went to the head
of Sergeant llallor's tent, raising thc
(lap as he went to bis knooH. And In
one hand he held a keeii-hlnded penknife.
•'Sergeuiil." He shook llie sleeping
officer. "Sergeant! For God's sake
listen! I'm Llttlo Malono— l'vo been

In live more minutes! Sergeant, lor
God's sake
Bailor was awako, lie looked with
blinking, unbollovlng oyos at the
slender figure that knelt ou the uruss In
lhe moonlight hul a yard away.
"1 told you you were under arrest In
qunr "
With a movenieiii as if to open his
shirt nl tho throat, Little Malono slashed his penknife aemss his breast. A
match was ready In lhe olher hand.
"Look ut [.[iis!" he cried lowly,
trembling, as the feeble blaze flared
up. "I encountered one of lho spies
just as 1 saw lhe main body "
The sight of blood Jarred on Bailor's
nerves, und convinced hhn. Every
mun was awakened, Quickly they loft
tlio lillle row of tents and took places,
knoollng in the shadows of llie palms,
rifles loaded and ready.
"Not a Mhut until tbey begin hacking
at the tents!" cried Captain Killmh.
ll wus for Ihul reason thai he had
stationed bis men behind the line of
canvas houses. The Filipinos would lie
lu a body and behind nothing,
Liiile Malone knell beside his commanding officer.
"Now, you Jusi watch Ihem jump on
those tcnls!" he whispered, happily
disregarding lhe trickling of blood
down his chas! to his hell, "And
while you're watching ihem, think bow
they'll havo done ior us if we were iu
ihe tontsl"
Litlle Malone's hoarl hud gone to Ids
head, lie wuh going to prove himself.
Ue wus going lo dghl.
Two minutes passed, aud the silence
hecame intense. It was Ibe stillness
Ihul cnmcH before a terrific peal nf
Ihumler, before a hurricane, whon the
heaveiiH arc black as the Pit. Another
minute cume unit went, uud litlle Malone thought he hoard the crush of
grass under human feet.
And suddenly—like ono man with
two hundred arms—two hundred bolos
flashed In the rays of the moon, and
lhe fifty tents went to the earth hacked and torn lo shreds and threads-and
strings.
"Fire!" hollowed Captain Blflnch,
leading th** fusllade with his automatic
pistol.
A hundred rifles spat forth slender
blaZOS und lead encased lu pointed
jackets of steel, and, hefore the Filipinos realized what had happened, they
had fired again. Yet again thoy fired,
and the bolo-men left alive threw
themselves face downward on the
ground and cried for mercy In the
name of the Virgin. They were beaten.
Five minutes more saw the surviving
soldiers of the attacking party huddled
In a group wlillo a cordon of Americans
held guard over tbem. Then a fire was
lighted.
Hut tlie commanding officer failed to
find the youth wbo had saved the lives
of the whole company, His face turned gray and hard, though his lips
twitched at the corners and his eyes
grew moist.
Whnt hnd become of Little Malone?
"Where Is Little Malone?" he asked
huskily.
The first sergeant echoed it.
Those not doing duty guarding tlie
prisoners began B search for the soldier
whom tbey had called a poltroon,
speaking his name pitifully, sorry,
their hearts filled with regret. They
tore down the strings of tents, jerked
dead bolo-men over. None had seen
blm since tb • firing of the first volley.
They found him lying among tbc
dead, A bplo had fallen on his right
bSmple, but his bayonet was red In tbe
heart of thc Filipino commander, a
captain. Ills rifle was empty. Ho
had left the line hehind the trees rath
er than waste time in reloading, risk
Ing 'he Indicts of his comrades, to fight
hand lo hand with his bayonet to
prove that he was not a cowurd.
They curried htm to the fire. He was
only unconscious from tbe blow on his
head. Pig Malone brought u canteen
of wuter, which he applied, while Captain Blflnch himself began to bind up
the wound made hy tbo bolo. And
Big Malone stammerlngly told all thnt
he knew about Little .Mulone, despite
(he presence of the tlrst sergeant und
his hopes of a corporalshlp.
Then Litlle Malone made a grlma
Opened ids gray eyes and snt up.
"A litlle caress on the knot," wns his
comment, when he bad felt of the
bandage,   "Hid I get my man'.'"
"You got your man,' answered the
commanding officer, us lie applied a
strip of adhesive plaster to lhe young
soldier's breast. "By the way. how did
you get this slit withoui getting yuur
shirt  cut?"
"I had to do It to impress Sergennl
Uullor." said Litlle Mulone fearlessly.
"I npologlze for tbe lie, sergeant
Whnt are you looking so solemn about
you fellows? Are you much Obliged?
You see I heanl Itig Malone telling
about my prophecy."
"We certnInly are inuch obliged!"
said a dozen voices. And most sincere
nf ail, perhaps, was that of Captain Blflnch, "And we, us one mun, apologize." finished the captain,
"Accepted," grunted Little Malono
"itui it's not rlghl for an officer ti
apologize to u private, is it?"
"It may not be according to custom,"
Captain Ktllneh returned, "but It's
right lu Ibis cuse.   My boy. I'm going
tn give you something to help me express my appreciation,   it's ail I've goi
that's half good onotlgh for you. Uud
bb-ss It    It and you   otic the spirit of

II. pulled from his blOUSO a small,
silken American flag. Little Malone
look ii in bis blood-stained hands,looked at it through oyos that opened uml
shut In quick succession for a moment,
then huwed bis head and sobbed.
"Yes. hloss II. My folks all fell
under the other one hut I lovo this
Just the same. They would too, If tbey
wore nllvol"
Captain Blflnch wus a very human
person. He closed his mouth tightly,
so tightly Hint It quivered, trying to
keep a grip nn bis feelings. He crept
u foot nearer the wounded man to
Whom Company It owed life and breath
and hopes of seeing home aea in, and
look tho trembling, bloody bund that
held tin* diminutive Iluc.   And then,
"Hon, you hnd a reason for mruing
buck at San Muteo. a reason you'vo
never told. 1 want you to lell us why
you turned buck from the lop of the
trench at Kan Mateo."
Lillle Malono looked up. "I guess I
can tell It, now thnl yon know I've got
insldes lu me. Somehow, 1 don't think
ho will care, under ihe circumstances*.
1 could have told It before, Imt 1 know
lobody would believe me. Then, there
was the guying,"
lie put a hand to the pocket of his
shirt and drew out au object, whicli he
placed in lhe bauds of the officer.
.In.-;i us we reached tho top of the
trench," lu- said, "that fell from my
pocket and went rolling end over end
lown the hank. 1 wenj after it. The
irdors I obeyed aro on the buck. I
got those orders before 1 got ordors to
limb that hill at San Mateo!"
Captain Blflnch held thu object to
lhe light of tlie lire. Jt was the photograph of a. girl hack In old Kentucky,
and written across tho back In a careful, regular, girlish hand was thc sen-
ten oe;
"Don't let anybody seo this."
BRANCHING ROOTS AND BEETLES
Tlie irees known as "mangroves"
form dense thickets along the seacoast
hi the tropics of the Old World ns well
as of lh" New.    They are cll.irnetclizcd
h.v the production of many prop-routs
from the trunks und brunches; these
prop-roots reach Into thc mud ami
form practically Impenetrable tangles,
They thus hold ilie mud together ami
ure said to serve us natural sea walls,
protecting lhe soil agalnsl Un* Inroads
of ibe sea. The hark of lhe tree Is
Sometimes taken for Us ahundnlice of
ia ii a lug material; othorwlso tho several species ure of uo it. nlc Impurt-
alice.
in many of these species ihe roots
branch repeatedly before reaching lhe
mud, instead of growing straight down.
The root divides into two branches, one
of whicli soon dies uwuy, while the
Olher continues the growth. After extending for some distance, this Up also
divides into two, one of the hranches
persisting, ami so on, As the dead root
helps to bold the mud and to mnke the
tangle closer, tho branching hus been
explained hy some naturalists as a
special adaptation to the plant's mode
of life, Other explanations for tho
branching have boen offered. One of
these Is that tbe formation of a side
root near the Up of a prop-root would
divert the food In that part of the
plant and so cause the death of the
descending tip. Another view is that
the branching Is caused by Internal
physiological conditions.
During the past summer the Dutch
botanist, Van Leeuwen, had an opportunity to study a mangrove tangle
near Samarang in Java, and he discovered thc cause of the peculiar habit
of root-branching to be a small beetle.
The female heetle lays her egg near
lho Up of tho root. The Injury causes
u new root to sprout out just above
the tip, the old tip continuing to grow.
As tho young beetle hatches out it he-
gins to feed upon the material Inside
the root and this brings about the
death of that part. Instead of this
heetle being of use to tho plant, us
would be supposed by those who hail
assumed that the root hrunehing was
advantageous to the trees, Van Leeuwen finds that the beetles are quite
injurious.
SOME   INCIDENTS OF  ORATORY
A mun who boasted of his eloquence
said that he often declaimed to himself; on which another observed, "I
am afraid, on such occasions, you have
a very ignorant audience."
Christina. Queen of Sweden, having
attended a very long harangue, which
much fatigued her, was requested afterwords to show her liberality to the
orator; but, instead of giving anything,
she said, "I think he Is much indebted
to nie for sitting to hear his discourse."
That rhetoric, says Selden In his
Table Talk, is the best which is the
most seasonable and catching. We
huve un Instance of this In that blunt
commander at Cadiz, who showed
himself a good orator. Heing asked to
say something to ids soldiers lie made
them tills speech: "What a shame will
it be to you Englishmen, who food upon good beef, to let those Spaniards
beat you. tbat live upon oranges and
lemons."
Henry IV. onco entered Amiens very
much fatigued and, being saluted by
un orator, who began his hurungue
with "Most great most clement, most
magnanimous," . Interrupted him by
saying, "Add likewise, 'und most tired.'
So, pray, leave me to my repose, and I
will liear tlie rest of your discourse
another time."
The same monarch was at another
time detained from his dinner by a
verbose orator, who commenced his
Speech with, "Hannibal entered Curtilage,    sire "    "Ventre    de    Saint
Oris!" cried the king, this lieing his
usuul uuth. "Hannibal entered Carthage after be had dined, and I want
to go to my dinner."
The deputies of a city going to pay
their respects to Henry, exhausted his
patience hy some very fulsome
speeches, in ihe midst of which an ass
began to bray, wben tbe king, taking
Off his hut, said very gravely, "One at
a   time,   if you   please.  gentlemen."
One of the lust orations ever offered
was that of Henry himself to his army
hefore a bailie: "I am your king you
are Frenchmen   there  is  the enemy."
CLEVER DIOGENE8
a parent brought his son tot Diogenes for Instruction, and to recommend
Ibe youth, snld that "be had a uobb*
genius and was a lad of excellent
morals."
"Weil." answered Dlogenos, "if thai
Is the case,  he has no  need of nie."
In reply to a scurrilous fellow of Infamous character who bail poured upon blm a volley ot abuse, be said: "1
am hnppy in heing honored with thy
enmity; for the greatest mischief that
could befall nie would he thy friendship."
Diogenes having heen abused by an
old bald-pa tod rake, said; "My friend,
your hair must have possessed great
virtue."
"Why so?" oxclalmod the hoary profligate.
"Docause," replied lho philosopher,
"It hud the grace to abandon an In-
famous skull."
Dlogenos   once   nsked   a   spendthrift
to give him u hundred drachmas j the
young fellow, surprised at ihe request,
said: "Is It nol Inconsistent in you to
beg one hundred drachmas of mo,
when you ask only ono of other
peoplo?"
Not ut nil." replied the Cynic, "for
I expect to he relieved by them again."
A wrestler, who had often been de-
feated In ihe public games, left off the
practice ami took n. mat of physio.
"Now." said (lie Cynic, "you will succeed in knocking down those who formerly knocked down you."
Ulie   asked   I'io^.-iies   lo   advise   him
how he should h.* revenged of his
enemy. 'The hesi way l kimw of,"
said ihe philosopher, "is in make thyself distinguished h.v thy virtue."
Mooting at an early hour a musician
whose  singing  and   playing  made   tho
company   depart,    Diogenes   accosted
him wiih "Good morning to you. cock."
"Why do you cull mc cock?"

Heing asked what beasl was the

Observing some gay young Rbodlans
very olegantly dressed, he sold: "This
is pride;" Imincdinlcly afterwards a
parly  of  Lacedemonians passed  by.  In
lolled  Jackets,  upon   which  Dlogenos
laid; "'lids is another sorl of pride."
Yol tlie Cynic himself Justly Incurred
ih.- same charge,    Hearing tlmt  Plato
had   an   eiileiiainuieiit    in    his   house,
Diogenes entered, ami without ceremony begun lo trample upon the ear-
pels, saying: "Thus l tread upon the
pride of Plato." 'I'be wis.- man, instead of expressing any resentment at
ids rudeness, observed calmly: "Bul
wiih grouler prldo, Diogenes."
Dlogones obsorvlng a young profligate throwing stoms at a gibbet said:
"I s.-e thOU art a promising lad, and
Inula nol Ihul (bon will hit the murk
it last."
A lawyer uml a physician disputed
About precedence, and appealed to Diogenes, who gavo It for the lawyer,
saying: "Let the thief go firs-it and the
executioner follow."
Th*' magistrates and officers of justice were conveying a fellow to the
gallows, whoso crime consisted ln
stealing a silver cup from the public
treasury. One asked Diogenes what
was tlio moaning of that crowd and
uproar. "Oh, nothing." said he, "only
tho great rogues are carrying the little
rogue to the gallows."
OLD CUSTOM KILLED
From time Immemorial it has been
the custom of tho French dressmakers
lo display their new fashions at the
Autcuil race-course. They decked their
models in tho bravest costumes and
sent them out to mingle with the gay
crowd und to excite the interest and
the envy of modish i'aris. But the
custom has been broken. Not a modal
was to be seen last month, and those
who arrived witli cameras and not.-
books to secure a forecast for the season were compelled t*» return empty.
The dressmakers say that the old
custom win never h»- renewed. The
harem skirt lias killed it. They believe
that but for the outcry uf the newspapers the new skirt would have
triumphed, but public taste is easily
gulded and public prejudice is
aroused. The newspapers united in a
hue and cry as soon as the first harem
skirts appeared on the Auteuil racecourse and fashionable women were
positively afraid to wear it. So the
dressmakers will not repeat the rlalry
venture. They will give no hint of tha
new fashions for the edification of tha
critics and they will make their own
plans for the introduction of their
novelties.
