A'WWinOIiiirjfj later a tall figure,
wrapped from neck te heela ln a gray
cloak, rapidly crossed the mottled
ligbta and dlaappcared Into Carewe
street. This cloaked pen-son wore ou his
head a soldier's cap, nnd Tom, not recognising him surely, vaguely wondered
why Tiipplngham Ma rah chose to muf
lie himself so warmly on n June evening. Ue noted the quick, alert tread as
unlike Marsh's usual eait. but no suspicion creased hia mind thnt tha flgure
might be that of his partner.
A rocket went up from the Roueo
House, then another, followed by a
nili ii of anrila and a rackety dlacbarg*
of small arms, tho beginning of a
coble dlaplay of fireworks ln celebration of the prospective victories of the
Unltad Btatea and the utter discomfiture of tlie Mexican, wben the Rouen
volunteers abould reach the aeat of
war, an exhibition of patriotism which
brought little pleasure to Mr. Vanrevel.
But over tha noise of the street he
beard bla own name abouted from tbe
stairway, and almost Insiantly a violent knocking assailed tb* door. Bo-
fore he could bid the visitor enter, the
door was flung open by a stout and excited colored woman who, at light of
him, threw up har hands ln tremulous
thanksgiving.  It was tbe vala Mamie.
She sank Into a chair and rocked
herself to and fro, gasping to regain
her lost breath. "Bless de good God

Tom brought ber a glass of water,
which she drank between gasps.
"I  iii'viih run so befo' enduln' my
II vln' days," she asserted. "Vou knows
me, who I am an' whum I cum Turn,
nlgb'a well'a I knows wbo you la, I

"Vaa, yea, I know. Will you tell ma
who sent you?"
"Mix Tanberry, sub, dat who aended

•Tea. Why? Doea she want me?"
Mamie emitted a screech. " 'Deed she

"Then what la It, Marnier

as to render lilm Judgment proof. It

exclaimed the client after the usual

Orchestra Tuning Explained.
Doobtlesa many theater goers have
wondered why It Is a practice of orchestra musicians to make their appearance so far ahead of the time of
beginning the performance and sit ia
their seats with nothing to do. Then,
at a seeming given signal, all bnnds
begin to "tune up," torturing tbe ears
of the early arrivals with a series of
squeaks nnd scrapes. Tbe mystery
was explained by ao orrheatra leader
tlie other day. "Tbo Instruments have
to be In accord with the temperature
of the bouse," said he. "There may bo
several degrees difference between the
tctiipcnitiirc of the music room below
stage and the house Itself. If we tuned
our violins downstairs tbey would all
lie flat when we take our places lu
the orchestra. For that reason wo
come npstnlrs earlier and let our Instruments get thc bouse atmosphere
before   the   actual   tuning  iKvlns."

Wintering Dahlia Tub*-**.
As soon as Uie tops aro killed by tba

six inches of Uie ground. The tubers
may Uien be dug and luverted In the
ground, to permit the sap remaining
in Uie plant to settle without dripping
UMng the tubers, in, It I* believed lhe

tbe jilant* boosing dry Uiey may be
placed In a cellar In bon-s or baskets
snd kept dry, but not permlttiil to |

Britishers  Should   Look   Wilh   Pride
Upon Race's Organizing Genius.
The London  Chronicle commenting
on the approaching session of the Colonial Conference, says:
Among the events of peace which
may happen in the Empire, it would
be diflicult to imagine one more important, or of better augury, thun the
Imperial Conference—as Sir (,'harle--.
Dilke well named it in I'arliu'ucut
during a recent debate - which '.-ill
assemble this month, when the Prime
Ministers of the great self-governing
States whicli are "The liritains le-
yond the seas," will be the guests ol
the liritish nation in London. No
more striking example could, in fact,
be given of the genius of the race Ior
founding free and flourishing communities, and maintaining, through
ir dependence, that fraternity winch
alone can save a great Empire irom
I disruption.
The liritish race haa reason to think
; with pride of the development of the
Imperial   C'otiferenoe,     whose     third
j meeting will   be  held  within   a    few
, days      Everynne   knows   Uiat     good-
j will will I,.* the dominant not* of. the
. gathering. The most delicate subjects
| may be and will be brought up I.r
I debate: but the discussion will take
I place in un atmosphere of genial Imperial patriotism which will keep 't
(ilea! of acrimony. Freedom and Ir.i-
ternity have proved such good guides
that there is nn anxious imposition nf
limits to thc scope of the agenda paper. Problems not only vital but complex will lie raised—the constitution
rf the Committee of Imperial Def-iH-ie,
and the question nf the representation
of the Hritains overseas upon it, the
naval agreement with Australia, nud
the diflicult questions of joirt naval
policy arising out of it; the organization of local forces for war in connection with a scheme of Imperial defence; and. even more controversial
than these diflicult matters, the great
question of preferential trading.
Another issue almost overshadows
these. Thc conclusion of the New
Hebrides Convention and the establishment by the Home Ministry of (he
modus vivendi in the dispute between
Newfoundland and the United States
(ire matters which raise the ipiesiinn
ot thc adequate protection of the
daughter States by the diplomacy "f
the Mother Country. There is not
another Government in the world
whicli would dare to discuss such a
point as this freely, in the presence
of those whose duty it must lie to
eriticir.e the actions of its ambassadors accredited to great and friendly
It is impossible to say before the
ConierODO* hai met, and public opinion with regard to its results has been
definitely formed throughout the Empire whether tiie permanent Consul-
tntive f'umniittee. which sn many
hope to see established, will be nne
ef the fruits of i»- d-liberntinns But
tl ers cun be no doubt as tn what is,
nfter all. the main point The organization of the whole Empire as a political unit is proceedine with a strong,
steady growth, and that which fifty
years ago would have seemed impossible is ti-vdav n splendid consummation within sight.
A Story of a P*r*ian Monsrch That
Point* a Moral.
Once upon a time a certain king of
PerslS went out bunting with all his
court. The chuse that day happened
to be long, uud tbe king became very
thirsty. Hut no fountain or river could
bo found near the spot on thc plain
where they rested for a short interval
At last one of the courtiers spied a
large garden uot far off. It wus tilled
with trees bearing lemons, oranges and
grapes. Ills followers begged th*
monarch to partake of the good things
In the i'ii nlin
"Ilea ven forbid that I should eat
anything thereof," said the king, "for
If I permitted myself to gather but an
orange from It my officers and courtiers would nut leave a single fruit
In the entire garden."

we picture then atood out from a
clump of smaller treea on a slight
eminence thai afforded a view ot the
North rood for a considerable distance llehind tills tree Turpin and
his fminds would lie in wait, and thun
suddenly sully out with lheir "Stand
and  deliver!'
There can be no doubt about this
being the particular tree, because it
waa specially mentioned in the indictment against Palmer (Turpin's real
name) when he was brought to trial
and hanged at York in April, 1739 It
was then alleged that in company
wiUi Tom King in October, 1734, lis
had "ambushed" behind the oak
until the HoyaJ Mail came up. and
the two had then robbed the mail of
property valued nt £300 The tree
was the soene of more Uian one encounter of Uie kind, and some tew
years ago when tome decayed wood \
wna cut away several old-fashioned
pistol bullets were extracted from  it.
Richard Parker, known as "Galloping Pick." another highwayman, who
was hanged nt Aylesbury in 1800, waa
also alleged to liavo robbed Lord Grey
under this very oak. It wns in the
spinney near the oak that Jnck Shep-
pnrd waa captured in hiding disguised ns a butcher, in the spring of 1734,
and was taken to Newgate, whence h*
made his famous escape, only, however to be recaptured and hanger! at
Tyburn in November the same year.
