The wun fuce of the tired womnn
wus aglow wlih expectation, Bbe
sunk down on ihe doorstep und snt
Htlll uud mule, her hands clasping each

likcei thnt cabin uud ils sordid surroundings, nnd there was something in
Bishop's talk Ihal made her Hi ml, he
wns nbout to propose renting the new
farm, house nud nil. lo her husband.
Her month fell open: she scarcely ul-
lowed herself lo breathe, Then, ns
Bishop paused, her husband's voice
struck dumb dismay to her heart,   it
wns as if she wns falling from glowing
hope bnck to lasted despair,
"Thill's more liuiel In Hint farm 'an

"Oh. Pole, Pole!" The woman wns
crying It to herself, her luce lowered lo

"Oh, I wasn't thiukln' nbout ruhtlal'

mini's dream ivas over. She raised ber

on Bishop, slill struggling for proper

' Pole drew himself up to his full
height. His big fuce was Hushed, half
with anger, half with a strong emotion
of a tenderer kind. He stood towering
over the old mun like a glaut swayed
b.v the warring winds of good noil evil.
"I won't heer n word more eif that,

"Oh. Polo, Pole. Pule!" The worn-
nit's cry wns now audible. It came
straight from her pent up, starving
soul nud went right lo Bishop's heart.
"You wnnt the place, don't you, Sully?" he snld. culling her by her given

glance was on lire.
"Y'es. I want It—1 wnnt it!" she cried.
"I ain't goin' to He. 1 want it more

her head In her lap nnd begun to sob.
P.ishop steiod up. He moved toward
her in n jerky fashion and laid bis

"Well. It's yores." he said. "Alan
I bought Pole would mine a kick about

It's yores, Sally Ann Baker. That's
the wny It rends."
The woman's sobs Increased, but
Ihey were sobs of unbridled joy. With
lier nprou to her eyes she rose nnd hurried into the house.
The eyes of the two men met. Bishop
.poke tirst:
"You've got to give in. Pole," he snld.
"You'd not be a man to stand betwixt
yore wife an' a thing she wants ns bad
us she does that place, an' by all that's
good an' holy, you sha'n't!"
"What's the use o' me tryln' to git

"Well, it's done," smiled the old mnn
.us he went to bis horse, "nn' ef you

Bishop bnd reached a little pigper
in a fence corner fiirtlter along on lib
wuy homo when Mrs. Bilker suddeol.i
emerged from a patch of high corn ir
front of bim.
"Is he a-goln' to take li. Mr. liishop?"
she asked, panting from her hurried
walk through the corn that hid her
from the view of the cabin,
"Yes," Bishop lold her. "I'm n-goln'
lo send two wagons over ill the morn-
In' to move yore things. 1 wish it was
ten time's us good a place us It is. but
It will Insure you nn' tlie children a

After the manner of many of her
kind, the woman uttered uo words of
thanks, but simply turned back into Ibe
com, unil, oci'iipied with lier own vision
of prosperity and choking wilh gratitude, she hurried back Io the cabin.
THE summer ended, the autumn
passed   and 'Christmas   up-
J5S?jS>    proiiched.    Nothing of much
\V&rJl importance had taken place
among the characters of this little history. The Southern Lnnd und Timber
company, nnd Wilson In particular, bad
disappointed Miller and Alan by their
reticence In regard to the progress of
the railroad scheme. At every meeting
with Wilson thi'y found him. cither
really or pretohdedly Indifferent about
the' mutter. His eeincern. lie told tbem.
was busy In Other quarters, and he
really did not know whnt they would
finally do about It.
"He can't pull the wool over m.v
eyes," Miller told his friend nfter one
of these Interviews, "lie simply thinks
be can freeze you out by holding off
till you have to raise money."
"He may have Inquired Into my
father's financial conditio!)'" Buggebted
Alan, with a long face.
"Most likely," replied the lawyer.
"And  discovered  exactly   where  we
"Perhaps, but we must not believe

to checkmate blm, 1 don't know how,
but I'll think of something, He feels
tbat be has the upper hand now, but
I'll Interest blm sunn.' of these days."
Alan's love nfi'alr hud also been dragging. He hud hud numerous ussur-
ances of Dolly's constancy, but her
eyes hnd been opened to the seriousness of offending Colonel Barclay. She
now knew that her marriage against
his will would cause her Immediate
disinheritance, mid she wns too sensible n girl to wnnt to go to Alan without a dollar nml with the doors of her
home closed agulust her. Besides, she
believed In Alnn's future. She somehow hnd more faith In the railroad
llinn any other Interested person. She
knew, too. Hint she wns now more
closely watched than formerly. She
had, wilh firm finality, refused Prank
Hillhoiise's offer of marriage, nnd that
bud not helped her cuse III Ihe eyes of
her exasperated parent, Her mother
Occupied neutral ground. She hnd a
vague liking for Alnn Bishop and, if
the whole truth must be lold, wss
rather enjoying Ihe siluiillon.
(In Cbristinus eve Adele wns expected home' from Atlanta, anil Alan hud
come lu town to meet her. As It hup-
peiii'il. un accident delayed her train
so thnt it would not reiicb Hurley until III o'clock ut night iiisti'iid of 0 In
the evening, so there was nothing for
ber brother to do but arrange for their
staying tbat night ut the Johnston
limine. Somewhat to Alan's surprise,
who had never discovered the close
friendship and constant correspondence existing between Miller and bis
sister, tlie former announced that he
was going to spend tlie nlgbt at the
hotel und drive out to the farm with
them tlie next morning. Of course lt
was agreeable, Alan reflected, but it
was a strange thing for Miller to propose.
Prom the long veranda of the hotel
nfter supper that evening the two
friends witnessed tlie crude display of
holldi. ' fireworks In the street below.
Half _. . i big bonfires made of dry
goods boxes, kerosene nnd tar barrels
nnd refuse of nil kinds were blazing
along tbe main street. Directly opposite the hotel the only confectionery
and toy store in tlie place was crowded
to overflowing by eager customers,
and In front of It the purchasers of
fireworks were letting them off for the
bonellt of the bystanders. Flrecrnck-
i'1-s were exploded by the package, and
every now nud then u clerk In some
store would come to the front door and
fire eiff u gun or n revolver.
All Ibis noise and illumination was
nt Its height when Allele's train drew
up In the car shed. The bonfires near
at band made It ns light ns day, and
she hnd no trouble recugubJlng the two
"Oh, whnt an awful racket!" she exclaimed ns she released herself from
Alan's embrace and gave ber hand to
"It's in your honor," Miller laughed
as. to Alan's vast astonishment, he held
on" to her hand longer than seemed
right "We ought to bave hnd the
brass bnnd out."
"Oh, I'm so glad to get home," said
Adele. laying her hand on Miller's extended arm. Then she released It to
give Alnn her trunk checks. "Get them,
brother," she suid. "Mr. Miller will
tnke cure of me. 1 suppose you are not
going to drive home tonight."
"Not If you nre tired." snid Miller In
a tone Alan bad never heard his friend
•jse to any woman, nor bail be ever
seen such an expression on Miller's
fae'C ns lay there while the lawyer's
eyes were feasting themselves on the
girl's beauty,
Alan hurried nwny after the trunks
and a porter, lie was almost blind
wilh a rage that wns new to blm. Was
Milli'r deliberately beginning a flirtation with Allele nt a moment's notice?
And had she been so spoiled hy the
"fust set" of Atlanta during her stay
there that she would allow It—even if
.Miller was n friend of the fnnilly? lie
found a negro porter near the heap of
luggage that bud been hurled from the
baggage cur nnd ordered his sister's
trunks taken to the hotel. Then lie followed the couple moodily up to the hotel parlor. He wns destined to undergo
another shock, for on entering that
room he surprised Miller and Adele on
a sofa behind the big square piuno
with their heads suspiciously near together, and bo deeply were they engaged In conversation thnt, although he
drew ti]> a chair near them, they paid
no heed to him further than to recognize his appearance with n lifting of
their eyes.
They were talking of soein! affairs in
Atlanta nnd people whose names were
unfuniiliur to Alun. He rose and stood
beforo the lirepluce, but they did not
notice his aha ngo of position. Truly It
wns maddening, He told himself that
Adele's pretty face nnd far too ensy
manner hnd attracted Miller's attentiou
temporarily, and the fellow wns during
to enter one of his flirtations right before Ills eyes. Alun would give him a
piece of bis mind nt the tlrst opportunity, even if he was tinder obligations to
him. Indeed, Miller had greatly disappointed him, and so bnd Adele. He had
always thought sbe, like Dolly Barclay,
wns different from other girls; but no,
she was like them all. Miller's attention bad simply turned her head. Well,
as soon as he had a chance he would
tell her n few things about Miller and
his views of women. That would put
her on her guard, but lt would uot
draw out the poisoned sting left by
Miller's presumption or Indelicacy or
whatever It was. Alnn rose and stood
at the Ore unnoticed for several minutes, and then he showed that he was
.t least a good chaperon, for he reached
out and drew the old  fashioned bell
i Then she seemed to notice lier brother's
, long face, und she laughed ont teaslng-
l ly, "I'll bet he and Dolly ure no nearer
together than ever."
"You are right." Miller joined in her
mood, "tbe colonel still has his dogs
ready for Alan, but they'll make It up
some day, I hope. Dolly is next to tbe
smartest girl I know."
"Oh, you nre a flatterer," laughed
Adele, and she guve Miller, her bund.
"Dou't forget to be up for early breakfast. We must start soon In tlie morning.   I'm dying to see the home folks."
Alnn was glad that Miller had a
room of his own, for he wus not In a
mood lo converse with him, unel when
Adele had retired he refused Milter's
proffered cigar and went to his own
Miller grunted us Alnn turned away.
"He's bad bud news of some sort," he.
thought! "nnd it's ubout Dolly Barclay.
I wonder, after ull, if she would stick
to a poor man, 1 begin to think some
women would. Adele Is of that stripe-
yes, she Is, nud Isn't she stunning looking? She's ti gem of the llrst water,
straight us n die. full of pluck, nnd—
she's all right—nil right!"
He we'iit out on the veranda to smoke
and enjoy repeating these things over
to himself, The bonfires 111 the street
were dying down to red embers, li round
which stood ii few stragglers, but there
wns a blaze of new light over Ihe
young man's head. Along his horizon
had dawned a glorious reason for bis
existence, a reason that discounted every reason he bail ewer entertained.
"Adele, Allele." he snld to himself, and
then his cigar went out. Perhaps, Ids
thoughts run on lu llielr mad race with
happiness—perhaps, with her fair head
on her pillow, she wus thinking of liim
as he was of her.
Around the corner came n crowd of
young men singing negro songs. They
passed under (he veranda, nnd Miller
recognized Prank Hillhoiise's voice.
"Thnt you, I'Yniik?" Miller culled out,
leaning over the railing.
"Yob. That you, Ray?" Hlllhouse
stepped out Into view. "Come on. We
a>'e going to turn Ihe town over. Every
sigu ceiines down according to custom,
you know. Old Thad Moore is druuk iu

evening. We are going to musk and
let him out. It's a dandy racket. We
are going to make him think we are
White Caps and then set him in the
bosom of his family.  Come on."
"I can't tonight." declined Miller,
With u laugh.  "I'm (lend tired."
"Well, If you hear nil the church
bells ringing you needn't think it's
Ore and jump out. of yonr skin. We
ulu't going to sleep tonight, and we
don't intend to lei tiiiyl otly else do it."
"Well, go it while' vent nre young."
Miller retorted, with u lnugh, nud Hill-
house joined his companions In mischief, and they passed on, singing
Miller threw his cigar away nnd
wont to bis room.
"Perhaps I pught to tell Alan," he
mused, "but bell find lt out soon

him how I feel about his own sister

appeared, and Alan nsked, "Is my sister's room ready'/"
"Yes, It's good and worm now, sub,"
snld the negro. "I started the fire an

Miller and Allele had paused to listen.
"Oil, you nre going to hurry me off to
bed," the girl said, with nn audible
"You must be tired nfter that ride,"
snld Alnn coldly.
"Thnt's n fact, you must be," echoed
Miller. "Well, If you have to go you

You know I'm going to spend the night
here, where I have u regular room, and
I'll sec you nt break fast."
"Oh, I'm so glad!" said Adele. "Yes,
1 can finish telling you In the mornlnu "
a chair placed for Adele nt a Utile table reserved for three In a corner of
the robin, which was presided over by
a slick looking mulatto waiter whoso
father had belonged to Miller's fnmily.
"I've been up an hour," he said to
her. "1 took a stroll down the Btrcet
to see what damage the gang did lust

where It doesn't belong. To tense the
owner,- nn old negro drayman, whom
everybody jokes with, tbey took his
wagon to pieces nnd put It together

like the- building of the pyramid.-;."
"Whisky did It." laughed Adele.
"That will be the final explanation."
"I think you are right," agreed Miller.
Alan bolted his food In gruni silence,
unnoticed by tlie others. Adi-Ie's very

to ids discomfiture, Ha excused himself from the table before they hnd
finished, mumbling something about

went Into the olllce. The lust blow to
his temper wns dealt by Adele ub she
cable from the dining room.
"Mr. Miller wants to drive me out In
his buggy to show me bis horses." she
said, half smiling. "Yon won't iiiliui,
will you? You see. he'll wnnt his team
out there to get buck in. and"—
"OU, I duii'l mind," he told her. "I
See you lire bent on making u goose of

But she closed his month with hei
"Leave him to me, brother," she snld
as she turned nwny. "I'm old enough
to tnke cure of myself, nnd—and—well,
1 kuow men better thnn you do."
When Alnn reached home, he found
that Miller and Adele bad been there
half nu hour. His mother mi't him nt
the door with a mysterious smile on her
sweet old face as she nodded at the
closed door of tbe parlor. .
"Don't go In there now," Bhe whispered. "Adele, nnd Mr. Miller have
been there ever since '.' ».y come. I
really believe they nre in love with ench

barroom Just about daybreak waked
me, nnd I couldn't go lo sleep again.
There Is no use denying It, Al, wo
have a barbarous way of amusing our-
selves up here In north Georgia."
He went on nnd stood with bis back
to the tire, still unable to rid ills brow
of the frown It had worn the night before.
"Oh, I reckon you've got too citffled
for us," he said, "along with other accomplishments   that   fast    set   down
there has taught you."
Adele laid her book open on her lap.
"Look  here,  Alan,"  she  said,  quite
gravely, "what's tlie mntter with you?"
"Nothing that I know of,"  he suid,
without meeting her direct gaze.
"Well, there Is," she said, as the outcome of her slow Inspection of bis
clouded features.
He shrugged his shoulders and gave
her his eyes steadily.
"I don't like the way you and Miller
are carrying on." He hurled tlio words
at lier sullenly. "You see, I know hlin
through nnd through."
"Well, that's all right," she replied,
not flinching from ids indignant stare,
"but what's thut got to do with my

"Y'ou allow him to ho too fnmlllnr

'Ah, I nm at the first of this!" Adele,
Instend of being put down by his
stormy words, wns smiling Inwardly,
Her lips were rigid, but Alan saw tho
light of keen amusement In her eyes.
"Ia be really so dangerous? Thnt

girls love to handle mnsciilino gunpowder. Do you know, if I was Dolly
Barclay, for Instance, nu affair with
you would not be much fun, because
I'd be so sure of you. The dead level
of your past would alarm me."
"Thank heaven, nil women are not
alike!" was the bolt he hurled at her.
"If you knew as much about Ray Miller us I do, you'd act iu a more dignified

"On a first—oh, T sec what you

her smile nwny. "Let's go to brenkfast.

not disposed to deal leniently with

early, hours, so one day an early parade was ordered unexpectedly, und
Ave minutes before the hour the colonel rode past the culprit's quarters.
Cheerfully unconscious of impending

Over the undeniable port the by no

tT.ll.htc.-,ill,     IV,miry     Killot     Against
Tobacco Cheating.
In the code of laws passed by the
towns of Windsor, Hurtford aud Wetb-
ersfleld In tbe years 17S8-30 may be
found the following on tobacco chewing:
"Forasmuch as It ls observed that
many abuses nre crept In and commit
ted by the frequent taking of tobacko.
It Is ordered by the authority of Ibis
court tbat no person under the age of
twenty-one years nor any other thai
hath not already accustomed blmselfe
to the use thereof shall take any tobacko until hee hnth bought a certificate"
under tlie hands of some one wbo arc
approved for knowledge aud skill In
physlcks tbat It Is useful for him and
also thut bee hnlli received a lycense
from the courts for the same.
"And for tbe regulating of those who
either by thelre former taking It have,
to thelre apprehensions, made It necessary to them or upon dim advice nre
persuaded to the use thereof, It Is ordered that no man within this colooye
after the publication hereof shnll take
any tobacko publlqtiely In the street*
highways or any barnyards or upon
training days, In any open places, uu-
deir the penalty of sixpence for each
offense against this order in uny of the
particulars thereof, to bee paid without
gainsaying, uppon conviction by tlie
testimony of one witness—that Is, without Just exception—before any one magistrate.
"And the constables In the several
towns are required to make presentment to each particular court of such
as they do understand and can convict
to be transgressors of thia order."
Plenty of Advice For Brides, bat Hot
a Word For tha Men.
A thoughtful young man of Washington was heard to decry the other
day the fact that, while there ls a deluge of "don't" and "do" for the bride
to follow, the bridegroom must shift
for himself.
"There ls absolutely nothing to guide
a man but his own awkward self. It
Isn't fair," he said. "From the time
a girl ls old enough tu detect sound
she understands the Importance of
having things done properly at n wedding, while the prospective groom Is
only something necessary to complete
the picture. Nothing short of Inspiration can get a man through a marriage ceremony gracefully.
"In order to Impress the bride and
spectators that ho ls enthusiastic about
lt be appears with a sort of frozen grin
on his face thut you expect to melt at
any moment and run down bis collar, lf he Is too frightened to respond
In a loud voice some of the bride's girl
friends will whisper tbat 'It was plainly evident he wns unwilling from the
start.' Again, if be replies in a loud,
stern voice another bunch in another
direction of the church will huddle together and express bow glad tbey are
that tbey aro not marrying him, whilo
tho attitude of many ls tbat tbey ure
signing away tbelr life and all worth
living for. So I, for one, think lt high
time that somebody wrote a few bints
on how to behave, that we men mny
appear enthusiastic about being married without being ridiculous."

Birmingham Jewelers have been
fumed since the mldiilo of the. ifven-
teenth century. When Charles 11.
brought with him to England the
French fashion of weariug metallic
ornaments Birmingham at once took
the lead In supplying them, and tbe
city then commenced a career of prosperity which has never save for brief
periods suffered abatement. Even
Southcy, who could scarcely find sufficiently censorious language to describe
Birmingham, allowed that It "excelled
every other place In tho world for
watch chains, necklaces, bracelets, buttons, buckles and snuffboxes," though,
he said, "they were dearly purchased
at the expenso of health and morality."—Loudon Chronicle.

Plaid mohair Is another attractive
material for bathlng-suitis, and it ls also used in bands and pipings, and iu
covering button-molds to trim such

in blue and white, and black and white,
makes pretty dresses. Bunting is once
more seen In the shops, and is very
good for the purpose under consideration, though a material of closer weave
Is preferable. Brilllantlne has many
good qualities—luster, closeness of

withstand vicissitudes. It is therefore
the choice of largo numbers of people.
Greens and lavenders, though beautiful In themselves, are never used, because they are of the opposite nature.
Many shades of red wear as well as
blue, and nothing Is prettier than white.
Grays, especially the bluish shades, are
very good indeed, and there are many
attractive combinations of these colors.
There is no reason why a bathing-
suit, though simple in cut, should not
be as shapely in its own way as a tailor-made street-gown, and it should
cei tainly be as well-made. Be sure to
gel a reliable patter!) as the first step
toward that end. Then follow the directions on the pattern label about placing
the pattern on goods, and Joining the
different parts. It is also of the very
greatest Importance that all the Beams
should be strongly sewed, so that they
may withstand the water, and the
daily washing and pressing afterward.

That ivovc ftotnetituei cures disease is a
fact that lias recently bem called to ihe
attention of the public by a prominent
physician and college professor,   in some
nervous diseases of women, such hs hysteria, this physician gives instances 'where
women  were  put iu a pleasimt  frame of
pi ind, were made happy by falling in love,
and in consequence were cured of lljf.tr
•nervous troubles—the weak, nervous system   toned   and   stimulated by  little  Dr.
Cupid—became   strong and vigorous, almost without   their  knowledge.     Many a
woman is nervous and irritable, feels dragged down and worn out, for no reason that
•She can  think of.     She may be ever so
much In love, but Dr. Cupid fails to cure
her.    In ninety ni*e per cent, of these
cases it is the womanly organism which
requires attention;   the weak  back, dizzy
spells and black circles about the eyes, are
only hyaiptoms.    Go to the source of the
trouble and correct the irregulhrilies, the
drains on  the  womanly system   and   the
other symptoms disappear.    So sure of it
is the World's Dispensary Medical Association, prnprictors of Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription, that they offer a $500 reward
for women who cannot be cured of leueor-
rlica, female weakness, prolapsus, or falling of the womb.    All they ask is a fair
arid reasonable trial of their menus of c re.
