Was Vane .Mannering. her husband—
hur husband!—still there? Was he
mourning for her? No; for there waa
thu unknown woman, Judith! All his
thoughts would be of her, of the woman he loved, and of whom he murmured when he slept.
>Sho leant her head on tho cold
stone and gavo way to tho despair
which is so fitting an emotion to
"the finest thoroughfare in Europe/'
nnd the most desolate, the most
heartbreaking in its magnitude and
solitude to ons in Nina's situation.
A footfall roused her from her absorption. A woman in most unwomanly rags crept up to her and ln
weak and abject tones begged of her.
"Just enough for a night's lodging, my dear?" *h* moaned. "I
'sven't slept in a Christian bed for
the last throe nights!"
| Nina raised her head and looked at
the woman. A wave of pity swept over her. How long, or, rather how
soon would lt be before she horself
was in a similar plight? She took
out her    purse and,     in    the    light
I streaming from the Savoy Hotel—tho
I strains of the suppor band floated
towards hor on the night air—she
was hunting for half a crown,    when
I a    man—the    woman's    accomplice—
hustled against    her,    .matched    hor
population of four millions, and I purse and,   with  the  woman,    disap-
' reared  as suddenly aa if  they     wuro
ner,    "It  would be better if you looU-
od in now and again."
Nina—smile not at her ignorance
and imsiifihisL'ca'ion, reader—was
foolish enough to take a sovereign
and a shilling from her purse and
place thein on the desk. The youth
caught them up, ns if he foared they
might By awuy if he lacked promptitude, and pul them inside the desk.
"That's all right," he said, as it
assuredly wus from Messrs. Sloper &
Slyne's point of view. "Vou look in
aguin; early and often, you know.
Come in to-morrow—in the afternoon. I get back from lunch about
four.    See?   Oood-nioriiing." I
He got off his seat and opened the
door and stood gazing with his gash
of a mouth stretched in an admiring
grin as Nina went down tho stairs.
"My, sho's green!" he ejaculated ae
he tore himself away from the door
and returned to the desk. '''Hut she's
prime, prime! Wonder if she'll como
back, or whether she'll spot the
Nina was not without her suspicions; but she did not spot tho game,
and the next aftornoon—oh, the do-
solation and the solitude of that day
in London, in a place which owned
not ono friend fur tho solitary  girl
—she     again     presented   herself    at
Messrs.  Sloper & Slyno's.
The youth wns In his accustomed
seat, and carried a pungent cigarette
—it mingled affably with the scent of
hair-oil—in his loose and bibulous
"Ah, how are you?" he said with a
mixture of impudence and deference,
for the refined, beautiful face, with
its grave, violet eyes awed evon him.
"Glad to see you. Guv'nor's still
away. The marquis can't part with
'em. Important business. Sorry to
say nothing has turned up." He referred to the ledger and mumbled
over it as before. "Rather a slack
time just now. Dessay you find time
hang 'eavy on your hands. Do myself sometimes. Now, what do you
say"—he had sufficient grace to
stammer and look uneasy—"what do
you >*uy to doing one of the halls
this evenin'? I'm not particularly
flush—Sloper _ Slyne don't pay me
a princely salary, oh, by no means!
—but I can run to a couple of dress
circles for the Frivolity. Know the
Frivolity, I s'pose?" with a leer; "I
dessay we can manage a bit o' suppor afterwards, eh?"
Nina regarded him with an amazement which evidently disconcerted
hi*, for ho turned away and eyed
the glass and lingered tho incipient
moustache with soma embarrassment.
Nina leant forward In her chair,
her heart beating fast with a sensation of disappointment tempered by
disgusted  amusement.
"Are you asking me to go with
you—with you—somewhere?"
"That's so," hu said uneasily.
"You'd better."
Nina laughed bitterly, for her eyes
were suddenly opened.
"Tell nie—though it isn't nocosBary
—ls this pretence of business, of getting me a situation, only a pretence?
Tell mc the truth, please."
Somothing in the musical voice, so
low and yet so clear and commanding, compelled the youth to an unaccustomed veracity which after-
Wards astonished him.
"Woll, you know," he said, grudgingly, "if you drive me into a corner—and that's where you are driving
me, don't you know—it's something
like what you call it. We're a registry offico. We tako the fees, don't
you know. As to tho situation"—he
shrugged his narrow shoulders—"we
might get 'em or we mightn't: most
often and generally we mightn't."
Nina rose pale and statuesque in
her anger.
"But don't you cut up rough!
Look here, you're no good for any

Nina rose, pale to the lips, but
"My good boy!" she said. "Haven't
you a mother, a sister? Is there no
one to tench you—no, 1 will not go
with you to this placo. Will you
give me buck my guinea?"
The youth's face fell.
"Can't!" he ejaculated. "Entered

Is worth. Sure you won't conie with

he followed her.

Nina   left   him,   plcrding    nnd     expostulating, and  mado hor way    out
Into  Regent Street.
Early in the afternoon as it was,
the well known throughfare was
crowded, and she was jostled and elbowed us Bhe mude her nay to the
Strand. She went buck to the hotel
discouraged ond dismayed. She had
spent a guinea nt the sham registry
ollico, and saw no prospect of employment. She was too tired, too
heurt-sick to eut, und she spent tho
rest of the evening in the utlic near
' tlm sky. At nightfall, weary of her
Rolitudo and the thoughts that
weighed upon her llko a physical
burden, she wont out. The streets
Were crowded und her solitude in tho
midst of the multitude was almost
intolerable. She made her way to
the Embankment and, leaning
against the stone work which keeps
tho slow but mighty Thames ln
bounds, looked listlessly yet longingly ut the brown water sweeping placidly towurris the sea.
There, across the ocean, to which
the tide was tending, was the island
where she had known u happiness Le-
j_oud  the power af wori_s t« express,
unsubstantial as the mist that
was rising over tho river. Nina uttered a cry of dismay and started
after them, but a policeman who
had witnessed the latter part of tho
familiar act stopped her with a
friendly hand on har shoulder.
"No use, no uso! They've got clear
off into tho Strand. You should
never think of taking your purse out
on the Embankment and, begging
your pardon"—as he looked suddenly
at her face with its pure, distraught
•yea—"this la no place for you.
"Shall I cell a cab, miss?"
"No, no!" said Nina, bethinking
herself that she had no money left.
"It—it dees not matter. Thank you
—and good-night."
The thoft of he, purse had left hor
pennllosa. She tried to face the situation bravoly, to laugh, but the
laugh would not como. Unconsciously
she turned and walked up the Embankment. It was, at any rato, 'quiet
• nd solitary, and sho craved solitude
and quiet. She had to think, to decide where she would go. She was
penniless, friendless, ,in this great city
and already she had found how
heartless lt could be to the friendless
and penniless.
She made her way slowly, mechanically to the Chelsea end of the Embankment. She had no thought of
Polly in hor mind, and it was with
a gasp of surprise rather than relief
that, ln tho garish gaslight, slie saw
the name of Polly's street staring ut
her from the end house.
Still mechanically, and half unconsciously, she walked up the street,
and, as lf in a dream, stood before
the houso with the number Folly had
given her.
By this time she was weak and
faint with fatigue and excitement,
and she stood, swaying to and fro,
and gazing at tho house. At this
moment a hansom cab drove up and
a girl alighted, paid tho cabman-
after the usual dispute—and was entering tho house, when her eyes fell
upon the figure clinging to  the rails.
Folly—for it was she—hesitated a
moment, then she went up to Nina.
"Now, then,'" she snid, in a mat-
ter-of-fact voice, "what are you doing hore; what ls the matter?"
Nina turned her white face, ond
Folly uttered an exclamation of surprise and dismay.
"Miss Wood! Not really! You, and
horo! No, cabby, not a sixpence
more! I know your fare! Off you go!
Miss Wood! Oh, my dear, what has
happened? Hero, come in with nie!
Dear, dearl to think that I should
find you here! And like tbisl Oh,
eome in; come ln!"

The Earl of Lesborough!
The title rang in Mannering's ears
mockingly. Ho fought with his emotion and with a gesture of shame
and apology raised his face from his

Sir Charles still stood beside his
"I bog your pnrdon," said poor
Vane; "it—it Is so sudden, and the
boy—grent Heaven, to think that he
—and Augustus—are dead, and that
I—I, who never dreamed of it should
stand In their shoes!"
"Yos, It's awfully bnd," snid Sir
Charles, shaking his head, but feeling mean because he could not mourn
as keenly the loss which bad made
his friend a peer. "But you have got
to pull yourself together, Vano,
There's no end to do, to sec to.
You'll make a llrst-rntc earl, old
man! You'll go to Tressider"—Mr.
Tressidor was the Lesborough family
lawyer—"first thing to-morrow morning. I'll go with you If you like—no,
better go alone. Oh, yes; I'm as sorry almost as you can be for the catastrophe, but—well, after all, you're
my pal. you know, and for tho lifo
of me f can't help a sneaking feeling
of satisfaction that the succession
falls on you. Here, have a drink!"
He pourod out a glass of chnm-
pagnc and Vane took it mechanically
but sat with drooping head and
moody brow, twisting the glass round
and round by its slender stem; and
"Letchford watched hiB friend anxiously and curiously.
"Better get to bed, old mnn." he
said after nearly half un hour, "you
look played out and as If you wanted a good night's rest. In the morning-"
Mannering nodded and roso, nnd
Letchford took him to his room.
"Is he bettor?" asked Lady Lctchford when Sir Charles entered their
room. "My heart aches for him. 1
have never beforo seen a man break
down; and it makes it all the worso
when he is such a groat, strong fellow as Mr. Mnnnering—Lord Lesborough, I mean."
Sir Charles shook his head reflectively as he brushed his hair.
"I can't make him out, Blanche.
You saw how he looked when ws
(ound     blm—wandering    about    •>>•
streets like
his mind—"
"The wreck,
Lady Letchford.
"Not much! Vane could stand half
a dozen wrecks."
"Judith? Oh,  Charlie, how could I
have been so gauche as to    mention
her!" she wailed.
Sir Charles shook his head.
"Rather unlike your usual tact, old
girl," he admitted.  "Yes, I'm afraid
he was hit hard there.     I'm    sorry
Judith is a pal of yours, -Blanche—"
"Was, Charlie. Bo Just!  You   know
I have not spoken to her    since   Bhe
Jilted Mr. Mannering.     Of course, he
must have felt it, for    uo doubt    he
loved her. She is not only the most
beautiful woman in the world—"
"Present company excepted," said
Sir Charles, with a fond glance over
his shoulder at the figure sitting up
in bed.
"Nonsense," retorted Lady Letchford. "Don't be foolishl I was never in tne same street—oh, I wish I
did not pick up your slang so easily I
—I never could bo compared with
Judith; she was, and is, and always
will be, simply incomparable. But I
hate her for treating Mr. Mannering
so cruelly."
"Well, she was punished, anyhow,"
said Sir Charles. "Fancy chucking
over a man like Vane for old Marl-
"He was a marquis, you see,"
murmured Lady Letchford.
"A man old enough to be her
grandfather! That ho should die two
days beforo ths wedding is—or—what
do you call it—"
"Poetical justice, do you mean? It
served her right. But, Charlie, if it
isn't tho wreck and the, privations he
suffered—did you notice now he shirked speaking of them?—and It isn't
Judith, what is it that has changed
him so?"
Sir Charles shook his head.
"I don't know. Anyway, whatever
it is, it has hit him hard, deuced
hard. I don't suppose we shall ever
lind out. Vane can be as close as an
oyster when he likes."
"Well, you've got to help him all
you can," concluded Lady Letchford,
with a sigh. "And do put those
brushes down—you'll brush all the
hair off your head!—and come to bed!
The look in that poor man's face
will keep me awake all night—if I
don't go off at once."
Mannering paced his room for some
hours, feeling that bed was impossible for him.
Ho was the Earl of Lesborough,
owner of an historic title and a vast
estate and wealth which had been accumulating steadily during the reign
of tho late earl, who h«d lived a
penurious existence devoted to amassing money and finding good investments for it.
And of what use to him—Vane—
were the title und the money? His
heart was buried on the sands of an
unknown island in the Pacific. It
had died within his bosom in the
hour he had seen tho wreck of the
raft at his feet, had swam out to
the little woollen cap which was ull
that remained to hiin of Nina, his
wife, the woman ho loved.
He threw himself on the bod at last
and slept; but it wus only to dream
of the island, only to go over the
scene of the marriage and the too
fow days that followed it.
Letchford, going to him in the
morning, found him asleep, but tossing restlessly, and returned to Lady
Letchford with a doleful shake of the
But when Mannering appeared at
breakfast hs was, outwardly at
least, calmer and more like a man in
a normal condition.
"I'm afraid I upset and distressed
last night. Lady Letchford," he said
with grave apology. "The—the
"That's all right. Blanche understood," said Letchford, cheerily.
"Have some more bacon—iff's of no
use offering you anything else, because no one eats anything at breakfast but bacon. Shall I go with you
to Mr. Tressider, Vane? I will, if
you like."
"We will do anything and everything you like, Lord Lesborough,"
murmured Lady Letchford.
Mannering started at the "Lord
Lesborough," and abruptly set down
his codee cup which was on its way
to his lips.
"No, 1 think I'll go alone," he
said; and soon after breakfast he set
Mr. Tressider was one of tho old-
fashioned lawyers who stick to tho
Inns. His ofiice was in Grey's, and
Munnering, as he mounted the Btcep
and not too clean stairs, paused and
looked absently at the trees in which
tho rooks had nested and brought
out their young; ho did not seem in
any hurry to put in his formal claim
to the title.
A confidential clerk, of as old a
fashion as his master, received Mannering, and with a grave earnestness
ushered him into the presence of the
Mr. Tressider came to moot him
with outstretched hand, and exclaimed with intense satisfaction and
"Lord Lesborough! At last! How
do you do? I need scarcely say that
I am glad to soe youl My advertisement will be sufficient proof of
that. "
"I've seen none," laid Mannering.
"I'v* been abroad—been wrecked. I
heard the—the bad news for the tret
time last night, from my friend, Sir
Charles Letchford—"
Mr. Tressider nodded; he had a nod
which Lord Butleigh would not have
been ashamed to own.
"Quite ao; quits so! I have tbe
honor of Sir Charles Letchford's acquaintance. So, of course, you know
the—er—lad circumstances which have
placed you in possession of the title.
Very sad; very sad! But I am very
glad to see you, my lord."
The title was still strange to Mannering and he moved uneasily.
"All the more glad," continued the
old lawyer, "because at one time we
almost feared that you had completely disappeared, in fact, were
lost. Of course, we heard of the
wreck of the Alpina. I am so rejoiced you were saved I I have done the

In this country nearly every student

thnu possibility of a great trial lawyer.
Hnving rend accounts of brilliant cross
Examinations uud successful addresses
to juries, he has in mind thnt he is entirely competent ut the outset to try
the most complicated and difficult
cause. Unfortunately as to many who
are not qualified for thut work it is
ouly after very muny years aud aftft
considerable experience at the expense
of litigants nnd the public. If at all,
that they ascertain thnt they huve nol
the peculiar aptitude necessary to tbe
successful trlnl lawyer. In tbe meantime not only have clients suffered, but
the business of the courts has been retarded to a very serious extent by the
luck of adaptability on tbe part of the
practitioner as well as b.v luck of experience, since It is impossible tbat every man admitted to tbe bar shall have
the opportunity to try a sufficient number of causes to give bim the degree of
experience requisite in order to obtain
the best results.
Sooner or luter in the interest of the
Clients and to save the time and patience of the courts there must be iu
this country a natural division between tlie labor of the solicitor and the
duly of the barrister, not artificial or
conventional, but one which shall grow
up from the nature of the case, by
which certain men who are best qualified for the trial of causes will tarry
on thut work to the practical exclusion
of those without special adaptability
for that class of business. In this, as
in every other direction specialist
must hud his place.

Paid   With   Knighthood.
In an autobiography of Sir Henry
Bessemer ls told how, ln 1833, when
he was a youth of twenty, he learned
that the British Government was losing about {500,000 a year through the
use of forged stamps. He set about
finding a remedy. In nine months he
discovered how to forge Government
stamps with ths greatest ease. This
was a risky bit of knowledge for a
struggling young man who wanted
money wherewith to get married to the
girl of his choice. But young Bessemer,
having Invented forthwith the perforated stamp that is now known everywhere, went gayly to the Government
officials with the forgeries In his pocket to ask lf they were genuine. When
Sir Charles Presley passed them as
genuine Bessemer remarked lhat he
knew they were forgeries—"simply because I forged them myself." Then he
suggested a remedy. It was accepted.
Bessemer was offered the post of superintendent of stamps—for plant and
staff must be reorganized—at $3,000 to
$4,000 a year.
Young Bessemer went away happily
to tell his good luck to the girl of his
choice. He explained to her the sit
uatlon. how old stamps had been picked oft documents and used agnln and
how he had Invented an elaborate plan
to remedy this "But surely," said the
young lady, "lf all the stamps had a
date put on them they could not at a
future lime be used with detection."
This rather startled young Bessemer.
But he devised a simple method of marking the date. The British Government
was delighted. The device was accepted. And, as no change of machinery or staff was needed, Bessemer was
Informed that no superintendent of
stamps would be appointed. Thus he
had deprived himself of a Job.
Forty five years later, after he had
Invented the "Bessemer process" of
preparing Iron and had made a great
fortune, Bessemer wrote to Lord Beaconsfield, then Prime Minister, pointing out that he had saved the country
millions without the reward of a penny.
He no longer wanted money, but the
Government acknowledged the debt and
paid lt with a knighthood,

Anglo French Marriages.
At last a practical arrangement has
been concluded with regard to Anglo-
French marriages, which will put an
end to cruei abuses. It has Just been
settled between the two Governments
that no Frenchman will be able to wed
an English girl in England unless he
can produce a certificate from his Consul. The document must be drawn up
ln English as well as In French, and
must, moreover, have been approved
by the authorities of the two countries. The Intending" bridegroom will
have to go through all the formalities
which are de rlgueur in his native
land, just as lf he was about to marry
one of his own fellow countrywomen.
This, as I have remarked, will put a
stop to crying scandals. The French
marriage laws are very strict and precise, and ignorance of them has brought
many an English girl to ruin. She had
gone through the usual service In
church or chapel, and had considered
lierself a lawful wife until one sad day,
when she was cynically lnfonned by
the man to whom she had confided her
future that, as the civil ceremony had
been omitted, she had no legal claim
on him whatever. Many a heart has
been broken, many a little family
turned out Into the street, owing to
the trust which the poor girl had reposed ln her unworthy suitor. That
these Iniquities have too often been
committed with deliberate calculation
by unprincipled Frenchmen is a truth
that has been demonstrated over and
over again. Henceforth, the English
girl who may contemplate a matrimonial venture with a Frenchman will
bf properly protected, but It would be
Just as well lf she had additional en
qulries instituted as to the exact social
position, character and means of the
foreigner who has expressed a desire
to obtain her hand. Matrimonial arrangements are conducted ln France
on very business-like principles, and
this Is an example which might be
followed with advantage on this side
of the channel.—Paris correspondence
of The London Telegraph.

Torpid Liver
The Surest Way to Prevent Disease Is te
Keep the Liver Active With
Too frequently an external cause
for fever la looked for, when the real
source of trouble Is from within the
body Itself. .
To begin with, the liver becomes
torpid, sluggish and Inactive, and
poisonous bile Is left ln the blood to
corrupt the whole system. The result Is the overworking of the kidneys and the clogging up of the organs of excretion.
Food whleh should be digested ls
left to ferment and decay ln the Intestines, and Inflammations and fevers
are set up.
In such a condition the body ls a
regular hotbed of disease, and ls
most susceptible to any ailment of
an Infectious or contagious nature.
The best Insurance against diseaso
ls the use of Dr. Chase's Kldney-Llver Hlls to keep the liver active.
This great medicine has a direct and
specific action on the liver, and Is
wonderfully prompt'and effective In
awakening and Invigorating this important filtering organ.
A healthy liver means pure blood,
good digestion and the proper work
ing of the bowels. A healthy liver
ensures the onward passage of the
food through the Intestines and ox-
cretery organs, and so removes all
chance of the poisonous waste matter
remaining ln the body to produce
pain, suffering and disease.

According to John Adams, It SheaM
Be July S.
On the 8d ef July, 1776, John Adams,
then one ef the representatives of Massachusetts in tbe Continental congress,
wrote to his wife Abigail:
"Yesterday the greatest question was
decided which was ever debated In
America, and a greater perhaps never
was nor will be decided among mon."
In a second letter, written tbe same
day, he said:
"But the day ls past. The 2d of July
will be the most memorable epochs ln
the history ef America. I am apt to believe that lt will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day ef deliverance
li,** solemn acts ef devotion te God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized
with pomp and parade, with shows,
games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and
Illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward, forevermore."
When the resolution was taken up on
the 2d, all the states, except New York,
voted to accept lt. Thus, on the 2d
day of Jnly, 1776, the Independence
of the thirteen united colonies from
the throne of Oreat Britain was definitely decided upon. The 2d, and not
the 4th, may be called the true date of
the separation. We could with propriety celebrate the Fourth two days earlier. That the participants ln the work
considered the 2d as the true date ts
shown by the letters written by John
Adams, quoted at the beginning of the
article. The popular fancy, however,
seized upon the -llh, the date of acceptance of Jefferson's more dramatic declaration of the reasons for the separation, as the proper day to celebrate.
The debate upon the document was
continued until the afternoon of the
4th, and, says Jefferson, might have
run on Interminably at any other season of the year. But the weather was
oppressively warm, and the hnll ln
which tke deputies sat was close to a
stable, "whence the hungry files
swarmed thick and fierce, alighting on
the legs of the delegates and biting
hard through their thin silk stockings.
Treason was preferable to discomfort,"
and at last the delegates were brought
to such a state of mind as to agree to
the Declaration without ftr.'lher amendment.
It ls a mistake to suppose that the
document was signed by the delegates
on that day. It is improbable that any
signing was done save by John Hancock, the president of the congress, and
Charles Thomson, the secretory.—Paul
Leland Haworth in Harper's Magazine.

The Shamrock.
In Ireland only one shamrock ls
known. It Is an indigenous species of
clover which trails along the ground
among the grass In meadows. The tre-
fold leaves are not more than one-
fourth the size of the smallest clover
usually seen ln America and are pure
green ln color, without any of the
brown shading of white and pink clovers. Tbe creeping stem is bard and
librous and difficult to dislodge from
the earth. On St. Patrick's day the
true shamrock has to be searched out
among the grass, for, though comparatively plentiful at that season, lt
grows close to tbe ground. Later It
bears a tiny "white crown" blossom.

Sonlh Africa's First nnda Were Paid
For In Cotti.
South Africa's first diamonds were
paid for ln cows. The story is told by
Joseph B. Robinson, one of tbe wealthy
pioneers of that country. In 1879 be
gave eight oxen and a wagon loaded
with sugar and tobacco to a native in
exchange for a twenty-three carat
gem. "The news sprend like wildfire
through the countryside that a white
man was giving away wugons nnd
oxen for bits of stone," he says. "I
set all the natives who came to work
to seek for diamonds on one side of tbe
Vaal river, and I brought up my own
fifty men to hunt for diamonds among
the bushes and scrub on the otber side
of the stream. I had bought tbe land
on both sides of the river, so thnt 1
was working on my own property.
Next morning at sunrise, when I was
having my coffee, I was startled by
a loud hullabaloolng, nud, looking
out, I saw the whole gang of my men
rushing toward me ln a state of wild
"One of them had found a dlnmond
of good size. They all had come to
see what I would do with lt. 'Whnt
will you give me for It?' said the
finder. 'I will give you ten cows.' I
replied and sent the man Into the herd
to take bis pick. He marked ten of
the best cows as his own. The men
bad never dreamed of making sucb a
bargain. Ten cows for a bit of stone!
Off they went again and found diamonds every day. They became rich,
and I accumulated a good store of
precious stones.
"After we had accumulated a large
quantity we decided we would better
send tbem to London. We made a belt
full of small pockets, ln each of which
we placed a diamond. When the belt
was filled my p.rtner girded lt nbout
his body and started for Cape Town.
He never took off the belt until he
reached London. And it wns in this
way the flrst consignment of African
diamonds reached London."
The Indian's Bait Was Good, bnt tho
White Man Didn't "Bite."
With the Apaches a really brave
mnn does not stand as high In public
estimation as does a clever thief. His
chief excellence, from an Apache standpoint, lies In bis ability to outwit the
white mnn, snys Mr. Cremony, the nu-
thor of "Life Among the Apnches."
I was sitting, suys Mr. Cremony, In
front of my tent, writing a letter, when
a young Apache came up and asked
what I was doing. I replied I was talking to my friend In Washington.
"How cnn you talk to your friend so
"Wlt.ec an Apache wishes to talk of
speed to a distant friend," I answered,
"he sends him a picture of a bird; lf be
talks of something Bwcet he sends a
picture of a flower. Instead of pictures
tbe white man has these little signs
which all understand."
The Indlnn took up the letter snd
scrutinized lt carefully.
"I do not believe you," he said. "You
try to make a fool of me. These little
signs are all alike."
"I will give you proof. I will write on
tbls little piece of paper thnt tbe sutler
Is to give you some tobneco. Go tnke It
to the store and see lf I do not speak
the truth."
The Indian snatched tlie paper and
was off. A few minutes later I saw
him slowly coming toward me, a piece
of tobacco In his hand and n look of bewilderment on his face. Suddenly bis
expression changed to satisfaction, and
he hurried forward.
"Did you get the tobacco?" I asked.
"Yes, but I do not believe you. You
and he had nn understnndlng before so
thnt you might deceive mc. Now lf you
will write some more of those little
signs on paper telling the sutler to give
mc much more tobacco and if he docs
then I will believe you."
But the Indian's ruse failed. I did
not "rise" to the occasion.

Toronto Chauffeur Took Two Doctors
and a Nurse 6.1 Miles by Night In
a Race Ajainst Death.
All skeptics concerning tha automobile and Its uses lu civilization should
read this true story of how last week
a Toronto motor saved a woman's life
Mr. Smith of the Auto Supply Co. is
vouoher for the story's accuracy, says
The Sunday World of the 20th August.
For he was the driver of the cat-—In
one of the wlldant. rides that ever happened ln these parts.
It was on Monday evening, between
8 and 9 o'clock, when the 'phone rang
down Into the Auto and Supply Co.'s
"Yes," said Mr. Smith.   "What is lt?"
"Dr.   ls speaking.    Have you a
oar you can send out to the country?"
"Well, wa don't make a practice of
sending cars out at night on hurry-up
calls, doctor.   How far is lt"
"Out Sutton way—nine miles past
Sutton Village."
"Whew!    That's over 60 miles."
"Yes, and It's a case of life and
death," said the doctor. "I've just got
a 'phone message from the local doctor. Unless another tfnetor and myself
oan get out there to-night there's not
the ghost of a chance of saving the patient There's no train now. And If
we wait till the flrst train It's a three-
hours' ride anyway. The woman will
be dead before we can reach her."
There was a moment of silence before Mr. Smith said: "All right, doctor. It's a pretty rough night But
you get your party down hare as soon
as possible.   We'll be ready."
There was tall hustling around the
garage for a few minutes. One of the
biggest cars ln the shop was yanked
to position and put in trim for a drive
that promised to break all the speed
laws ever made ln Ontario. Smith decided to drive himself. At 8.50 by the
City Hall clock the party was all on
hand at the garage, Including the two
doctors, one nurse and an assistant
from the garage. The party of five
in the big black car siarted up Yonge
street There may have been policemen and there may not have been. It
made no difference. That car was
scheduled to run through to nine miles
past Sutton, if possible without a stop.
Once out of the city antl the car was
opened up. The big lamps glared Into
the dark nnd the dark was aa black
as ink; not even a flash of lightning
to relieve the gloom. The cast wind
howled cold off the lake and the dust
flow. None of the party did much
talking, for the car was doing the
stunt of Its history, coughing off the
miles the Lord only knew how fast,
for it waa too dark to seo the speedometer.
Through Thomhill at a break-neck
gait; a few minutes later a whiz
through Richmond Hill; no stop. The
car was talking ln good style, and and
all her four cylinders wore ohugglng
in unison. It was Newmarket before
the flrst stop was made, rive minutes
were consumed here In looking over
the engine. Then the party started on
again. Another stop was made at King,
but no more till Button was reached.
Sutton Is a village. Folks were all
abed by now; scarcely a light anywhere, but those big lamps on the
auto. The east wind was now a gale,
with spits of rain In lt, and there was
still nine miles to rover—after a 15-
mlnute halt to doclor up the car. From
some of the villagers directions were
got as te the rest of the journey.
"What's the timo now, doctor?" asked   the driver.
"Eleven o'clock," said the doctor.
"Are you all ready back there?"
"All ready," replied the nurse, who
was the only laily In the party.
It was raining in gusts when the
house waa reached. Tin hour was then
11.20, and the odometer on the car read
63 miles, which was an average, not
counting the stops, of nearly 30 miles
an hour.
The rest of the story was not much
ln the sutomoblllsts line. His part of
the business was done—for the present
at least. Up to that point, tho doctors
had done nothing but sit tight in the
tonneau . Now lt was their turn to do
their work. The woman wan still alive,
but in as critical a condition as any
woman could be and live. An operation was Immedialely decided on. Just
how much of It had been rehearsed
during tho ride nut the chauffeur never knew, for his hand was on the wheel.
And whilo his assistant worked with
tho car out In the shed, getting her
ready for the home tilp ho sat In tha
houso waiting for the doctors to reap-
It was long past midnight and the-
ialn driving ln dismal sheets on the
east wind when the door of the bedroom opened and tho three medical
men camo out.
"Well, doctor, how Is sho?" asked
the anxious farmer.
"Tho operation was successful," re-
piled the doctor. "If we had been
three hours later no operation would
have been necessary."
"Well, by Ceorge!" said the farmer,
as he shook tho doctor's hand. "I've
said a good many hard things agin
them automobiles, but Til never say
another word agin 'em as long as I
Tho doctors waited until daybreak,
by which time tho patient had recovered from the cflecls of the chloroform.
Leaving her In charge of the nurse,
ihey packed up and set out again for

Qunlnt Ceremony That Goea With a
Bonmaulan Weddlnff.
At Roumanian weddings it is <Iie custom at the wedding feast for the
groom to receive his bride over «
bridge of silver.
Coins are placed ln a double row
across the table, and over this the
bride daintily steps to her busband'e
wulting arms.
The ceremony of laying the bridge la
oue of the Interesting events of the
wedding feast following tlie religious
ceremony. When the guests are
brought to a proper spirit of festivity
by the good cheer at the board a space
at the head of the table Is cleared and,
from a bag are drawn silver coins procured for the purpose, the proper provision being the production of coins
fresh from the mint.
These are laid in a double row across
the table, and when all is ready the
father of the groom makes a speech to
his son, admonishing him to see that
bis bride's wny through life ls alwaya
paved wllb silver.
A proper response ls made, and,
mounting a chair, the elder man swings
the bride lightly to the table. • Carefully
avoiding the displacing of a coin (for
that would mean bad luck) the girl
makes her way across the Bhort silver
pathway and leaps Into the arms of her
At wedding feasts where ostentation
is desired the bridge is built lengthwise
of the table.

A story of Liszt recites that on a
certain occasion a Miss M. was playing a souatu by Sterudale Bennett, a
work of a very prosy type and certainly lacking in uni-tlilng like spontaneity or poetry. Liszt was evidently not fnrallinr wltb it, so, after playing some six or seven pages, be gently
lapped Miss M. on the arm and said,
"Mademoiselle, would you kindly name
the piece you are performlug?" "Cer-
tiddly, sir," she replied. "It ls the
sonata 'The Mnld of Orleans,' by William Stcrndnle Bennett." "H'm," said
Liszt "It's n pity Uie original manuscript didu't meet the same fate as the

There*"continue to pour into the
shops an endless variety of gold gal
pons and ribbons, and almost as many
in silver. Moire effects are among
the new styles, and very sheer guaze
silver arid gold galoons also, together
with the embossing of heavy gold or
silver designs upon corded or plain
surfaces. From a trimming of half-
an-inch wide, to t*ie broad ribbon
widths,- trimmers find a wide margin
to carry out specia effects. In spite
of forewarnings early in the season
these bunches of silver and gold upon
hats, gowns, suits, and wraps, to say
nothing of gold gleams that are carefully studied by all fashionable tailors
have in the best dress quarters, held
their own marvellously;	
The collars are worn so high that
when the hair ns dressed on top of
the- head the long line at the back of
the neck is not pretty, and one dressmaker, \o remedy it, places three tiny
little bcfWs up the back. On one bodice that! was trimmed with bands of
gold these bows, were made of gold
clotih; (he entire bow was about one
inch across.        ,   ,_,
A sleeve that has a pretty new
effect is made frbm five-inch ruffles
of plaited chiffon in black, where the
body of the princess gown is in black
chiffon. The top ruffle is sewn in the
arm hole With the plaits over-lapping
so as to give the fullness at the bottom. The. second ruffle is sewn about
one-half1 inch under the edge of th
first. arid, sewn straight around. A
third ruffle is one in the same way;
the bottom drawn at the elbow in
fan-shape and finished with an applique black velvet rose and leaves,
Twp tiny white lace frills coming
from  underneath.finish the elbow.
