Then, as the colts came abreast and

became a stare focussed on a point
near his elbow.

Unlike his own, her eyes had remained constant to the outcome of the

As ihe croscondo <*r tho grandstand's

She turned toward him. lier lips were

There was a note of contempt in her

as   though   to   explain   it  all   wllh   the
frank outspokenness of a Bchool-boy:
"1 was wishing that I eould paint you
-   I couldn't help tfazitiH."
For a few moments as she stood
rigidly and indignantly silent, he had
opportunity to reflect on the Inadequacy of his explanation. At last, she
spoke with the line disdain of affronted
"Aro yen quite through looking at
me?   May 1 go now'.'"
He was contrite.
"I don't know that 1 eould explain—
but it wasn't meant to be—to be "
Me broke off, floundering.
"It's a little strange," she commented quietly na though talking tu herself, "because you look like n gentleman."
The man flushed.
"You are very kind and Haltering,"
he said, his face instantly hardening.
"I shan't tax you with an explanation.
I don't suppose any woman could be
induced to understand that a man
may look ut her—even stare at her—
without disrespect, just as he might
look at a sunset or a wonderful picture." Then, he added half in apology,
half In defiance: "l don't know much
about women anyway."
For a moment tbe girl slood with her
face resolutely set, then she looked
up again, meeting his eyes gravely,
though he thought thai she had stifled
a mutinous Impulse of her pupils to
ritlle into amusement.
"I must wait here for my uncle," she
told him. "I'nless you have to stay,
perhaps you had lietter go."
The toll stranger swung off toward
the betting shed withoui a backward
glance, and engulfed himself In the

j caught the Impression that the pre .tineas of the feminine display had been
here arranged, and that in scattering
attractive types along the front of the
white club-house, some landscape gardener had reserved the most appealing
beauties for a sort of climacteric effect al thu end.
Sarah and Anne Preston were there,
and wherever the Preston sisters appeared there also were usually gathered together men, not to the number
of two or three, but in full quorum.
And, besides the 1'reslon sisters, this
group included Miss Buford and a
fourth girl,
indeed, it seemed to be this fourth
who held, with entire unconsciousness,
more lhan an equal share of attention.
Duska Fllson was no more cut to the
pattern of the ordinary than the Itusslan name her romantic young mother
had given her was an exponent of th'
life about ber. She was different, and
nt every point of her divergence from
a   routine   type   it   was   Ihe   type   lhat
suffered by the contrast. Having preferred being a boy until she reached
that age when ii became necessary
lo bow to the dictate of Kate and accept her sex. she luul retained au understanding for, and a comradeship
wiih, men lhat made Ihem hers in
bondage. This quality she had combined with all that was subtly and
delldousiy feminine, and. though sh
loved men as she loved small boys,
some of tbem had discovered that
was always as men. never as a man.
She had a delightfully refractory way
of making her own laws to govern
her uwn world a system for whlcb
she offered no apology; ami this found
its vindication in Uu- fact that her

Mr. Walter Bellton, having accomplished the marvellous feat of escaping from tho bookmaker's maelstrom
with the immaculateness of his per
soual appearance intact, sauntered up
to drop somewhat languidly Into a
"When ono returns in triumph." he
commented, "one should havo chaplets
of hay and arches to walk under. It
looks to me as though the reception-
committee has not been on the job."
Sarah Preston raised a face shrouded in gravity. Her voice was velvety,
but Hellion caught its undernote of
"I render unto Caesar those things
that nre Caesar's—but what is your
latest triumph?" She put her question
Innocently.   "Did you win a bet?"
If .Mr. Belton's quick-flashing smile
was an acknowledgement of the thrust
at his somewhat self-appraisement, bis
manner at least remained lmperturb-
ubly complacent.
"1 was not clamoring for my own
duos," he explained, wilh modesty.
"For myself. I shall be satisfied with
an unostentatious tablet ln bronze
when I'm no longer with you in the
flesh. In tbls Instance I was speaking
for another."
He did not hasten to announce lhe
name of the other, in even the little
things of life, this gentleman calculated to a nicety dramatic values and
effects, .lust as a public speaker in
nominating a candidate works up to a
climax of eulogy, and pauses to let
his hearers shout, ".Name him! Nome
your man!" so Mr. Bellton paused,
waiting for someone to ask of whom
he spoke,
It was little .Miss Buford who did so
with the debutante's legitimate Interest
In the possibility of fresh conquest,
"And who has returned in triumph?"
"George Steele."
Sarah Preston arched her brows in
mild interest.
"So, the wanderer is home! 1 had
the Idea he was painting masterpieces
in the Quortler Latin, or wandering
about with a sketching easel In southern Spain."
"Nevertheless, he is back," affirmed
the man. "and he has brought with
him an even greater celebrity than
himself a painter of International
reputation, it would seem. 1 met tbem
a fow moments ago in the paddock,
and Steele Intimated tbat they would
Shortly arrive to lay Iheir joint laurels
at your feet."
Louisville society was fond of George
Steele, and when on occasion he dropped back from "the happy roads that
lead around the world." It was t'i find
a welcome in his homo city only
heightened by hts long absence.

at leasl lhat whenever he returned It
was to renew the proffer of himself,
.v.n though with the knowledge that
the answer would lie as It hud always
been: negative. Her interest was accordingly ready to consider In alternative the olher man.
"Robert A. Saxon—lho ilrst disciple

Bellton. If no one present had over

"Doesn't Ibe news of new arrivals

wllh a touch of drawl In his voice.
The girl half-turned her head with
;i Mull.* distinctly short of enthusiasm.
She did not care for Bellton, She was
herself an'exponent of all things natural and unaffected, and she read between lho Impeccably regular lines of
his personality, with a criticism that
was adverse.
"Vuu see," sho auswered simply, "It's

"Tell us all about this celebrity,"
prompted Miss Buford, eagerly. "What
is he like?"
Duska shook her head.
"1 haven't seen him. He was to arrive this morning."
"So, you see," supplemented Mr.
Hellion, with a smile, "you will, after
all, have to fall back on me—I have
seen blm."
"You," demurred the debutante with
a disappointed frown, "are only a man.
What tloes a man know about another
man ?"
"The celebrity," went on Mr. Bellton,
Ignoring the charge of Inefllcicney,
"avoids women." He paused to laugh.
"Ho was tolling Steele that he had
come to paint landscape, and I am
afraid he will have to be brought lagging into your presence."
"It seems rather brutal to drag him

came once more lhe noisy outburst
thai ushers Ibe horses Into Hie stretch,
and   conversation   died   as   the   party
came  lo  Its  feet.
None of its members noticed for the
moment the two young men who luul
made (heir way between the chairs
of lhe verandah until they stood Just
back of the group, awaiting their turn
for recognition.
As the horses crossed the wire and
the pandemonium of tin- stand fell
away, George Steele stopped forward
to preseut his guest.
"This is Mr. Robert Saxon." h
nounced,    "He will paint  the portraits
of  you  girls  almost   as   beautiful
you   really  are.    .    .    .   H's  as   far
mere art can go."
Saxon stood a trifle abashed at the
form of presentation as the group
turned to greet him. Something In the
distance had caught Duska Filson's
Imagination-brimming eyes, She wai
sitting with her back turned, and did
not hear Steele's approach nor turn
with tho others.
Saxon's casually critical glance passed rapidly over the almost too flawless beauty of tiie Preston sisters and
the flower-llko charm of littio Miss
Huford, then fell on a slender nirl in
a simple pongee gown and soft, wide-
brimmed Panama hat, Under the hat-
brim, he caught tlu* glimpse of an ear
that might have lieen fashioned by a
jeweler and a curling tendril of brown
hair. IT Saxon bad Indeed been the
timorous man Bellton Intimated, the
glimpse would have thrown him Into
panic. As it was. he showed no sign
of alarm.
His presentation as a celebrity had
focused attention upon him In a manner momentarily embarrnsslny*. He
found a subtle pleasure in the thought
that II had not called the girl's eyes
from whatever occupied them out beyond the palings, Saxon disliked fhe
ordinary. His canvases and his enthusiasm were alike those of the Individualist.
"Duska." laughed .Miss Buford,
"come back from your dreams, antl be
introduced  to Mr. Saxon."
Tlic painter acknowledged a moment
of suspense. What would lie lier attitude when she recognized Ihe man
who had stared al her down by (he
paddock fence?

"I beg your pardon," she snid simply, extending her hand. "1 was just
thinking --" she paused to laugh frankly, and It was the music of tin* laUgh
that most impressed Saxon "I hardly
know whal   I was thinking."
He dropped with a sense of privileged good-fortune into tlie vacant chair
at hor side.
With Just a hint of mlsehlof riffling
her eyes, but utter artlessness in her
voice, she regarded him questloningly,
"I wonder If we have not met somewhere before?    It seems to mo •"
"Often," be asserted. "1 think It
was iu Babylon tlrst. perhaps. And
you were a girl In Maeeilon when I
wus a spearman In the army of Alexander."
She sat as roflOCtlVfl and grave as
though she were searching her recollections of Babylon and Macedon for a
chance acquaintance, but under flu*
gravity was a repressed sparkle of
mischievous delight,
After a moment he demanded brazenly:
"Would you mind telling me which
coll won that Ilrst race?"
"Ills career has been pretty much
n march of successive triumphs through
lhe world of art, and he has left the
critics only one peg on which to hang
their carping,"
Steele spoke with lhe warmth of enthusiasm. He had succeeded 111 eup-
turtng Duska for a few minutes of
monopoly In the semt-solltudo of the
verandah a I the hack of the clubhouse. Though he had a hopeless
cause of hla own to plead il was
characteristic of him thai his first opportunity should go to the praise of
his friend.
"What Is tbat?" The girl found herself unaccountably Intorostod nnd
ready to assume this sl ranger's defense even hefore she knew wllh whu!
his critics charged him.
"That he is a copyist," explained the
man; "that he is so enamoured of the
style of Frederick Marston that his
pictures can't shake off the Influence.
He Is great enough to blaze his own
trail—to create his own school, rather
Hum to follow In the tracks of another. Of course," bu hastened to defend, "that is hardly a valid indictment. Every master is, at the beginning of his career, strongly affected
liy the genius of some greater master.
Tho only mistake lies In following ln
the footsteps of one not yet dead. To
play follow-the-leader wilh a man of
a past century Is permissible and laudable, but to glvo the same allegiance
to a contemporary is, in the narrow
view of the critics, to accept a secon
dary placo."
The Kentuckian sketched with ardor
the dashing brilliance of the other's
achievement; how live years had
brought him from lethal obscurity to
international fame; how, though a
strictly American product who had not
studied abroad, his Salon pictures had
electrified Paris. Ami the girl listened with attentive Interest.
When the last race was ended and
the thousands were crowding out
through the gates, Saxon heard his
host accepting a dinner Invitation for
the evening.
"I shall have a friend stopping in
town on bis way Kast, whom 1 want
you all (o meet." explained Mr. Bellton, the prospective host,   "lie is one
Senor Rlbero, au attael I a South
American legation, and lu- may provo

Saxon caught himself almost frowning, li.* did riot cure for society's of-
fcrings, but lhe engagement was made,
ami he had now rn. alternative to adding his declaration of pleasure to that

"There is lime." suggested the host,
"for a tun oul to Hie Hoiilevard; I'd

The suggoBtlon of baiklng at a promising landscape ordinarily challenged
Saxon's Interest to the degree of en-
ibusiasui.   Now,  he only  nodded,
II was not until Steele, who drove
his own car, stopped at the top of the
Iroquois Park hill that Saxon spoke.
They had halted at the southerly brow
of the ridge from which the eye sweeps
a radius of twenty miles over purpled
bills and polychromatic valleys, to yet
other hills melting in a sky of melting
turquols. Looking across the colorful
reaches, Saxon gave voice to his enthusiasm.
They left lhe car, and stood on the
rocks that Jut out of the clay at the
road's edge. Beneath them, the wooded hillside fell away, throe hundred
feet of precipitous slope and tangle.
For a time, Saxon's eyes were busy
with the avid drinking In of so much
beauty, then once more they darkened
as he wheeled toward his companion.
"George," he said slowly, "you told
me that we were to go to a cabin of
yours tucked away somewhere in (he
hills, and paint landscape. I caught
tlie idea that we were to lead a sort

broke off awkwardly.

Never anywhere hi all our wanderings had we seen so many butterflies
at one time. They swarmed In the
sunshine like clouds of gnats. Butterflies of every conceivable hue—like
the thrones of gay. sllk-elad Burmese maids who gather about the
railroad stations of Lower Burma.
They carpeted the trail, fluttering up
before our horses' honfs, perhaps to
light upon us. or upon the horses
themselves, or to drift off down the
valleys, or to settle on the trail ahead.
only to be started up again. The Bur-
man believes the spirits of human beings ft) be butterflies, which, when
(he bodies to whom Ibey belong are
at rest, may go fluttering about the
world al will. Thus only for the
gravest reasons will one Burman waken another; for that butterfly spirit
may be wandering, who knows where,
ami Illness or death may come to him
who Is wakened before his spirit has
returned gently to arouse ibe sleeping body.

If the testimony offered by an English naturalist in Ceylon be given full

hypnotic power, such as is gerierally
credited to snakes in general.
A crow was seen tlKhting an intruder
Into its nest situated at the very top
of a tree. The crow was circling at
close quarters and pecking hard at the
nest, cawing loudly all the time. The
nest was some forty feet above ground.
Presently a snake came out uf the
nest and started to descend, with the
now In hot pursuit pecking at the
cobra continually. The snake took
refuge about ten feet down in a clump
of dead terns from which it was chased
out by the crow. It came from branch

twenty feel.

INFANT MORTALITY is somethins frightful. We can hardly realize that of
all the children born in civilized countries, twentytwo per cent., or nearly
one-quarter, die before they reach one year; thirtyseven per cent., or more
than one-third, before they are five, and one-half before they are fifteen!
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save a majority of these precious lives, Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these
infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations, Drops, tinctures
and soothing syrups sold for children's complaints contain more or les3 opium, or

thoy stupefy, retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness, death. Castorb
operates exactly the reverse, but you must see that it bears the signature of
Chas. H. Fletcher. Castoria causes the blood to circulate properly, opena the
pores of the skin and allays fever.

With the Horses
The most common form of sor--
Bhoulders is practically a scalding. The
shoulder becomes tender and hot, probably no swelling;'the hair fulls out
the skin becomes reddened, and soon
raw. In these eases, as in other forms
of sure shoulders, of course, the proper
course is to give rest nnd treatment
until u cure is effected. But in many
cases horses are scarce, and tlie work
must be done In a certain lime, and
rest is practically out of thc question
so long as the animal is able to work.
Probably the nest treatment is a dressing made of one ounce each of sulphate of 7.1m- and acetate of lead, to a
pint of water. This should be applied
our or live times dally. Various means
nre taken to relieve pressure upon the
sore parts. Some use pails with boles

It was only a year ago that n young
tri in New Jersey was the hero of a

owned a little chicken farm In tl t-

better days. The father bad Just died
after   disastrous   failure   lu   Inisiness,
and   the   daughter   had   heel)   educated
lu ii fashionable boarding school nnd
was unfitted for any smt of work.
The mother was brave and resourceful
and decided tn move lnio the country
nnd raise poultry, she carried out hor
plan and was sufficiently successful to
make both ends meet.
One day while thc girl was packing

who the people would be who would

wish sbe might know the future nf
each egg. Then the Idea came to her

and she got nn Indollblo pencil and
wrote across thc pure, smooth surface
of several eggfl her name, "EKHth Putnam,-— , New Jersey, aged nineteen
years,  blue  eyes  ami  goldon   hair."
The eggs were sealed ami sent forth
and tin* girl forgo) nfler n time her audacious act; then about a month later
a letter came to her In a strange hand
It read:

The girl was naturally lu a great

She starched her one white gown and

Snar Rackerman of Red Gap
(My Edward Boltwood)
STANDING In tho doorway of hor
ranch-house, Miss Rackerman
read again tho telegram which a
cowboy had just brought to her. For
an Instant her square chin wavered
and her shoulders drooped; then she
sharply pulled erect hor lean, strong
figure, so that her Iron-gray hair nearly
touched the top of the door-ease.
"Jeff Crottyl" she shouted. '"Liza!

Hor Vetera n foreman stumbled
promptly from the corral near by; and
fat Eliza, the cook and maid of all
work, ponderously careened out of the
kitchen, wiping her jolly, bronze face
wllh an apron.
"I'm going Bast," said Miss Rackerman In a queer voice. "I'll catch the

cottage, William Rackerman lay on a

Miss Lyle, looking like a Dresden

Miss Rackerman accompanied her down
the street lo tho afternoon ceremony.
The lady of )Wt\ Clap had only her travelling-dress,   but   she  never thought   of

Crotty had nol spared the horses. Dut
after Miss Rackerman had ropalrod

dressed women coveted her roomy, drab
gown; observant men noted wilh approval the way in which she transacted business with tho conductor, Gazing at her. a wrinkled actor nudged
his manager, and asked him If ho remembered Charlotte Cushinaii.
State after Stale rolled by the window of the Sleeper, and Miss Rackerman watched them With no interest
other than lhat of a weary checker at
a long-distance race. Even beyond
Chicago, farther east than she had
been in thirty years, she looked out of
the window apparently for the sole
purpose uf counting the miles. Fellow travellers found her gravely courteous as an Indian chief, hut as unresponsive; her only reading was of
the dally  papers aud  the time-table.
She alighted on the station platform
in the small college town among the
New England hills, and accosted Denny
Keefe, hack-driver.
"You take me to .Murray's, quick!"
she said, calmly, and mounted the
Mr. Keefe blinked helplessly at a gur-
geous sophomore, wim hud engaged him
to convey a trio of ladles to the ZetQ

"The—the president's, ma'am?" faltered Denny.
"Whip up!" said Miss Ilackerman.
The president was dosing on his
piazza when Keefe's hack clattered
down th»* sedate slieel like a runaway
coal-truck. A black leather valise shot
out of the carriage door to the sidewalk. A talk woman In a brown slouch
Imt shot herself after it. and flung
Denny a silver dollar so forcibly as
nearly to knock hint from the box; ami
President Murray descended the piazza
steps with more than ills usual dlg-

"I'm   Susan   It.   Rackerman.   of   Red

Is he?"
"Ah. yes, madam—your nephew William, of course. I'm glad to say lhal
young Rackerman is—ah—out of Immediate danger."
"Thais Rood!   Where is he?"
The president pointed with his eyeglasses ni Hie green roof of a solitary
cottage, perhaps a quarter of a mile up
the wooded hillside.
"William is in his own room at -Miss
Violet l.yle's," said he. "We possess
no college Inllrmary, as yet; but, fortunately, liule Miss Lyle. William's
landlady, has had experience as a hospital nurse. He could have no better
antl more efficient cure than al his
Aunt Violet's."
"His which?"
"William calls her 'Aunt Violet.'" ex-
plnlned .Murray, smiling. "You see he

"You bet, HIU! She stands terrible

Miss Rackerman leaned backward, sn
that her trembling lips were out of the

"There's the door-bell, William," she
said. "Whose is that loud voice on

"Why, It's Aunt Snar!" blurted
young Kackerman, listening.
He made an effort to raise himself mi
his elbow, but Miss Lyle restrained
him. His excitement seemed to displease her thoroughly.
"Surely, William, your aunt—surely

"Vou don't know her yet. Aunt Violet." said the boy. with a hysterical
laugh. "1 wonder If she can hear me.

"Hush, dear!" entreated Miss Lyle.
She fluttered down the stairs In a
gentle spasm of IndiRnatlon. It was
outrageous that her adored invalid
Should be thus disturbed. Miss Lyle's
aristocratic taste was offended by the
Slangy contraction of the intruder's
"Snar!" she thought. "How vulgar!" ami she turned lhe knob of the
front door.

observed also that Miss Lyle was the

"And llow is your patient, dear Miss

young Mr. Rackerman is such a favorite—quite like one of us already. Is

She dodtrod behind the window-
frame. Through the shrubbery of the
lawn below her moved lhe lithe figure
of a man. Miss Rackerman saw his
middle-aged, sallow face, with its sleek
moustache. He picked up a pebble
and tossed the stone unerringly, as If
he had done It before, against the window of the next room—the room occupied by the mistress of lhe cottage.
"Who's he?" soliloquized Miss Rackerman.
The sash was raised; there was a
whimper of abject terror. The man
smiled insolently, and pointed to the
front door. Miss Rackerman heard a
flutter in the hall, like that of a frightened bird. She peered out of her own
window cautiously. The man had vanished.
As she crept down the stairs. Miss
Rackerman's bare feet made less noise
than those of an Apache stalking an
emigrant woman; nor was the resemblance otherwise incomplete. In the
pocket of her dressing-gown she carried a hair-triggered utensil without

with a mean laugh. "He ijuick, I advise, and—name nt a saint!"

grinned contemptuously at the uncouth
dressing-gown and Ihe dishevelled mop
of grayish hair.
