her curly golden head closer to his
shoulder, and twining her lovely
white arms more tight ly around
"My darling," he whispered brokenly, vainly trying to repress a

the threat you used on lhat occasion; the dagger, dripping with

with her death, all form a terrible
chain of circumstantial evidence
around you that will drag you to—

of    agony. "Can  you  not guess
what  I mean,  my  poor  Bonnylin?"
She lifted her lovely face, framed
in its sheen of golden hair, and looked at him with those wondrous blue,
velvety eyes.
"No, Le Hoy, I cannot guess what
you mean," she said in a puzzled
amazement. "Tell    ine     plainly,
"They will    Oh, Donnylin!    my
poor child, do not fall fainting at
my feet as I tell you tho horrlblo
truth abruptly! Do brave; thoy will
arrest you and drag you to prison, Bonnylin, charging you with
that poor girl's murder! Your only
safety lies in instant flight."
"But I am innocent!" she cried
pitcously. "I have explained to
every ono here just how it happened.
Poor India was my rival—or so I
thought; but for all that I could

doomed animal was reeling under
In an instant he hud made up his
mind what course lo pursue; every
moment was precious, for wilh the
speed of tho wind the officers were
bearing    down upon him.
Clasping llonnylin in his arms,with
one daring leap from the swaying saddle he cleared tho hedgerow, and dashed into the thicket;

graveyard beyond—to reach tho
cross-roads, where his friend Pen-

Ho had crossed the strip of densely wooded ground, and sprung over

when, turning un abrupt bend in

with Fenton, who was hurrying toward him, attracted by the     shots.

The grand ball which had opened
so brilliantly was brought suddenly
to a closo, and in tho wildest confusion.
Young girls had fainted, and ladies and gentlemen wore standing
in groups talking of the painful affair.
Somo one had wrapped tho dead
girl's white silk cloak about her,
shutting out from tho gazo of
those who stood around her tho
ghnstly spectacle.
There was a sudden commotion at
the door; it was flung open wide,and

Pierpont had gathered the slight,
girlish form in his strong arms,
leaped through the thicket of roses
to the open French window, out upon the porch, down to tho graveled
walk, and in an instant hud vaulted
into tho saddle with his- lovely, terrified burden clasped closo to his
heart with his strong left arm.
The ofllccrs and the horrified guests
of the ball reached the piazza Just

In an instant the officers, who had

"I know it," responded Lo Hoy,
huskily. "In Heaven's name what

Had they mistaken thnt swoon or

fallen for death? and thus, un-

her In his arms; "don't unman

quickly,  is my wife here?"
His mother sprung from his arms
and faced him, her proud old faco
white as death,
"Here!" she echoed, trembling with
awful wrath. "Do yon think' I
would permit the woman who could
commit such a deed to enter my
doors? You should know mc better,
Le Hoy."
"Did she eome here, my poor, little
hunted bird ; and have you dared
turn her from your door?" ho
cried  wildly.
"I am a rierpont." answered his
proud old mother; "nnd I would as
soon think of committing a crime
myself, as of harboring a person who
had committed one."
' "Then sho is not here?" he repented, with an awful groan.
"No!" answered his mother.
He picked up his hat and started
for tho  door.
" You must, not leave me,

Mrs. Pierpont shook her gray head;

jewels,  trembled.

answered; "and I cannot upholtl

slowly. "You must choose between

"Are you mad, mother I" cried tho
young mnn,  white to the lips.
"I have told you, If you cling to

Le Hoy Pierpont turned and faced
his mother In all tho dignity of his
insulted manhood.
"Mother," he answered huskily, "I

runiico stone is a porous feldspnthle
scoria from volcanoes. The pores are
linear and so line n:i often to he barely
visible except by iiiear.s of a magnifying glass. Its i-poeUic gravity Is 2.2 to
2.4—water being the unit—liut by reason of Its spongy texture pieces are
often buoyant enough to Iloat on water.
It consists chiefly of silica, with soine-
tinien 17 per cent of luimna, ..per cent
Of Boda and -I per cent of potash. It Is
of grayish shades of color, passing Into
yellow and brown. The chief source
from which It Is obtained for commercial purposes Is t'ampo Blanco, one of
the I.lparl Islands, where It forms a hill
nearly 1,000 feet high. In tho arts
pumice is largely employed, mostly In
n pulverized slate, as a polishing material for ivory, wood, glass, marbles, etc.
It is also used In lump for grinding and
smoothing metallic surfaces, leather
etc., and ln the preparation of parch

ends of conversation nro to entertain

whoever will consider cannot possibly
run Into either of those two errors, because when any man speaketh in com-,
