The Hon. Leila Cavendish wns seUlag
bnttenholo bouquets at the bazaar got up
/or .St. Simeon's church. She eneou_ter-
���d Sir Felix Trebotham loitering at the
entrance of the palmist', test.
"Are you going to have your hand
told?" she asked.
" Yes, I Khali at 5 o'clock, when my respected aunt has quitted these premises."
"It is a perfect craze of society," Mid
Leila scornfully. "Every person I know
has had theirs told, und V it is goud they
believe it, end if not th-ty dor.'t. I suppose there may bo somethlt.t, In it. Can't
be all guesswork.     Do you Lclieve in It:-'
"I do implicitly."
"No, really? Would you believe whatever they told you concerning your future?"
���' Of course."
"And if they told you to do something
would you oboy?"
''How can you doubt it?"
His face was grave, and Telle did not
observe the satirical emphasis which accompanied his words. She moved away
and had ample leisure to consider an adventurous plot which persistently haunted
hor mind nnd would not be driven awny.
Sir Felix's name had been coupled so
-often with that of Leila Cavendish that
sho had considered him as quite her personal property. But of late he had shown
a most stupid tendency to admire that
silly, painted little Dot Elliott-Shirt, and
Leila really could not think of allnvirg
that. At a few minutes to j she discarded her flower tray and moved slowly but
with a determined step toward the palmist's tent, where Sir Felix had quitted his
stand to escort his aunt to her carriage.
Another moment of hesitation, and then
Leila drew asido the silken curtain and
swept In.
The palmist was attired ln a long crimson domino, with a long black mask, and
was apparently about to leavo the tent by
a second opening to enjoy her well earned
rest and too. On seeing Leila she turned
back and scanned with deep interest tha
curious, imperious face.
"I wish," said the fair Intruder, breaking silence with difficulty���"I wish you
would let me wear your cloak and mask
for a few minutes, only a very short time.
You havo already told my hand, and said
I should play for a groat stake. You were
right; I nm playing lt now. Only you
can help me by lending me this disguise
for a small experiment I wish to make. I
will give you plonty of money for this
charity If you will consent to my request.
Look 1 This is half for the bazaar and hulf
for yourself." She held out her hand, and
several goldpieces glittered aguinst the
white palm as it touched the astonished
palmist's Angers.
"I cannot." she ocean fa!tcr.'ne:ly. whi)��
her eyes rested covetously on tho shining
"You can, must and will," said Leila
Imperatively. "It is only for a few minutes I want these things. Lo, do givs
them me!"
Ily alternate determination and persuasion the self willed girl got her own wiiy,
and tho reluctant palmist rutind a*.u
stood cIobo ngninst the tent outside, do.
termlnod to hear what would lie the result
of this strange whim. Leila softly si.ile
to tho curtain, pulled it aside and suid
sweetly: ''You needn't wait. Thank you,
I am all right now."
"I���my���my dress wns caught," murmured tho other, quaking.
"Your dress wa.s caught? Oh, I fancied
it was you who were caught I"
Tho palmist deported hurriedly, and
Leila watched her vanish before she returned to don tho crimson n In and musk,
hiding her hat carefully uwny from sight.
Five o'clock rung out iu sonorous |:eu*U
from tho bells of .St. Simeon's steeple, und
Sir Felix was punctual to the minute, Ho
pulled aside the curtains and can e in
with an air of awkwardness and defiance,
feeling ancl looking like a guilty person
naught in a foolish act.
I.eiln assumed a low, gentle voice, and,
seating herself Oil one of thu [nihilist's
easy chairs, drew another close beside her
for .Sir Felix.
"You wish to know your past, present
and future?" she questioned
"Yes, if you pleuso."
'Conio and sit here, and  1 will  do my
best to enlighten you."
Ho obeyed, and held out two well marked palms for her Inspection. Leila gently
took hold of one hand to draw It nearer,
nnd Sir Felix started nwny ns if there was
something disturbing or thrilling in her
"Yon aro generous, obstinate nnd impulsive," snid the fuir deceiver "You
act on first motives, and seldom alter your
"Do If"
'You havo a long lino of life, nnbroken
by any illness or scrims trouble, Your
life, apparently, will be n smooth und happy one."
"That's good I"
"You are a lover of onTor and like tb
seo everything in Its correct place."
"Well, yes, I'm fairly tidy," suid Sir
Felix, stroking his hulr hack and instinctively settling his crnvat.
"Yon lost a near relative when yon
wero���not. very old," said Leila, wondering how long ago it was since Lady Tra-
bothum died
'You are quite correct."
'And you have hud a narrow Bspnp*
from death by drowning, I think," continued Leila, thinking of a hairbreadth
adventure on Luke t'omo which he hart
tola ner ol ut Major uiiinmss unmet
" Right Ogata," said Sir Felix, looking
up at tho black mask, which bent from
his gaze and leaned attentively over hip
outstretched hands. <
'Vou have  had several lov    affairs,"
murmured Leila, " Vou an engrossod ig
a very Important one uovr.:'
"Oh. am If"
"This is rather embarrassing."
"I must reveal what I see in your hand."
Sir Felix wished he h��d not conio In
and writhed helplessly as Leila continued
calmly, "From what I can toll your affeo*
tlon Is returned."
"And what ls this mysterious 'sho'
"She ls dark and of noble family. I
should imagine by this peculiar line that
sho has a title." (He mustn't think it'*
tbat horrible Dot.)
Leila's heart beat fast as she watched
his face change and the eolor flush hotly
to his cheek.
"You will b�� married this year and liva.
a Tory :>appy ;:rc," an. Tcnttxrea nervonsiy.
"That sounds rathi r like the ending of
��� fairy tale," said Str Felix with an in-
ersdulous and rather contemptuous smile
"But lt li true, or will be if you do not
hesitate. Tom fate must be decided
"You are right; It must."
"Lose no time in settling and securing
��� happy destiny."
"Kight again; I will not."
"It is a hnMt of yours to procrastinate
���a bad hubit that must be mended. If
not, I will not answer for tho consequences
���I mean," said Leila hastily, "I cannot
read tiwin."
Sir Felix Meditated, aurling his mustache in some perplexity.
"It must be Leila," he murmured half
unconsciously, and it was well that the
velvet musk hid those burning cheeks.
"It may lie," she suid, "but I am no
thought render. 1 only tell you the lines
of your liund, where the voice of the past,
the present and the future id turned into a
picture, visible to our eyes only. I cannot tell il the ideal of your thoughts ls the
same person whose destiny seen.s infar-
WOVOn so strongly wilh /,mr own life.
Now, sir, I must It quest you to innlte
rsiin for others    1 can toll you no more.'
Sir Felix rose, dropped his coins on ihe
(able and left just as the real palmist
raised the outer ourtnlu und eutered her
"You may have your robe back," said
Leila, and east off the clonk from her
shoulders. Tlie owner resumed It and
gli.nced with secret, curiosity at the treui
hiing lingers whioh seemed loath to remove
the mask, so slowly were tlie black rib:
bons untied and tho guise doffed. Leila
put on her hut and quitted the tent, outwardly quite culm nnd self possessed. She
avoided a rencontre with Sir Felix, nnd
resumed her old stand ut the flower stall
A   friend  who owned  that   region  tf
lovely but, unsalable wares remarked tha**
she looked rather white and weury   "Yot.

Special Rates This Week
The average man does not save to
exceed ten per cent of his earnings.
He must spend nine dollars in liv'ng
expenses for every dollar saved. That
being the case he cannot be too careful about unnecessary expenses. Very
often a few cents properly invested
like buying seeds for his garden, will
save dollars outlay later on. It is
the same in buying Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, It costs but a few cents, .and
a bottle of it In the bouse often saves
a doctor's bill of several dollars. For
