Copyright, MOO, by T. C. McClor*
Thorpe had Ideals of honor and a
square jaw. The latter showed that he
had the courage and determination to
keep the former nbove compromise. Indeed Thorpe's ideals were no less unrelenting than bis method of backing
them up. He also had a heart. Several
little affairs had made him aware of
the existence of tlint organ, but of Its
real nature, its capacity for unlold
pleasure and its potentiality of untold
pain, he was quite unuware until he
met Emily Royce nt the Bnrrys' house
Then there began strange proceedings
in his cardiac region, the like of wliich
ho had never before experienced. He
rode with her through tho autumn
Junes, he shot with her In the autumn
woods. The world and Its cares were
somewhere fnr nway, and life wns very
new and strange and altogether charming.
It wns tho evening of the impromptu
dance that Thorpe enme bnck to earth
with a shock. He and Emily wero
sooted behind a screen of friendly
palms. Somo one wns playing a Wald-
K'iit't'1 waltz on tbo piano, nnd tho
swl9h of skirts and the click of dainty
shoes on the polished floor came in
pleasant rhythm. They had drifted
from the shallows of commonplace talk
into deeper waters. Her cheeks were
scarlet nnd her eyes had dropped to
the fox skin rug at her feet. The words
were on the edge of his tongue, but
they were never said, for suddenly the
square jaw set, tbe shoulders went
buck, and Thorpe In his masterful way
wns suggesting that they tnke a turn
or two in tbe waltz.
That night, in the seclusion of his
own room, Thorpe lit a cigarette and
communed with himself. That Emily
Royce was tbo one woman in the world
lie would ever care for he admitted
frankly. But Emily lloyce was tho
heiress to a round million., and Thorpe's
assets were merely a promising array
of prospects. There wns but one course
loft to hitn, nml ns he lit another clga-
"No," he said; "not at all."
He struggled fiercely to free himself,
but it was useless, and a terrible pain
in his left leg made him smother a
"We're quite helpless," he said, "but
keep your courage up. They'll bare us
out of here In a bit."
"I'm not afraid," she said. "But yon
are hurt. I know by your face. It's
very white."
He said nothing, but began another
Btruggle for freedom, enraged at bis
own helplessness. Outside was a confused din of ax blows and voices. He
listened. An ominous crackle came to
bis oars, and even ns he choked down
n curse, an acrid smoke was borne in
upon them. He covered bis face with
his free hand.
"Oh, my God!" lie groaned. "To have
to die like this!"
"I don't think I shall be afraid," she
snld, "with you."
He stretched out bis hand and took
"I have fought to keep myself from
tolling you," he ssld. "But now nothing matters. I can tell you now."
"Oh," she snid, "1 saw and I knew,
nnd because I was helpless 1 was miserable."
He felt her hand tighten on his. The
smoke thickened. Then nil at once the
nx blows were near, a flood of light
broke upon them. Voices were close
at bund. II» saw her lifted out and
felt strong orms beneath bim.
"I should never have told you lf 1
had thought we would ever be here,"
the told her later In the bare, front
room ot tbe farmhouse where they bad
been taken. He lay on a sofa, his left
leg swathed in bandages, and sbe sat
close beside him.
"Dear," she said, "I would go through
all tbat—and more—to hear lt."
It was then the square jaw weakened. 	
Sport* Are llaeful.
That a given occupation is pursued
for sport and no longer ns a means of
livelihood does not necessarily withdraw It from the category of things
useful for training. Tlie natural boy's
pursuit of frogs, birds and woodebucks
is a survival of n habit Indispensable
to primitive man. Hunting aud fishing were the most necessary means
of livelihood for savages. They are
pursued now as Bports ns well as for
livelihood, and there is good training
in them when practiced merely as
sports. They teach civilized man alertness, accuracy of observation, quickness of action, endurance and patience,
Just hs tbey developed these valuable
qualities In generations of savages,
who never knew what humanism, altruism ond idealism were. 'J le justlfl-
. iilion of unproductive athletic sports,
like ball games, races of all sorts and
dancing, lies in the fuels that they develop In civilized mnn some of tbe invaluable qualities which bunting and
fishing developed In snvnges and that
they recreate and revive In people who
lead the unnatural life of civilization
the power for useful work. Thoy also
defend young people against lazluess
nnd vice by affording pleasurable activities and Innocent gladness.—President
Charles W. Eliot In Atlantic.
rette he began packing bis suit case.
Iu tbe morning, despite tho threats and
entreaties of Burry and his guests, he
departed. It was his ideals of honor
that snid he must go; lt was bis square
jaw which caused this decision to be
carried out, but it was bis newly discovered heart which tortured him
poignantly with pictures of a girl behind the palm screen, scarlet cheeked,
with her eyes ou the fox rug. He went
to the otber side of the continent.
It was June when he came back east.
At'the office he found n letter from
Burry snylng ho would never be forgiven if he did not run up into the
country for n day or two upon his immediate return. For n moment the
thought of going thero filled him with
a Vague dread, but Uils he put sturdily
from blm.
"Come, closer ranks there!" be said
grimly to himself. "Don't Bkulk behind
tho bushes In tbat fashion." And, forestalling his arrival by telegram, be left
late Saturday afternoon for Barry's
When Thorpe boarded the train he
went at once to the smoking compartment of tb" Pullman to finish bis cigar.
The sun had gone down behind the
hills nnd mellow twilight lay over the
green meadow lands ucross which tbe
train w:._ speeding when he rose to go
to bis seat in the car. As he passed
down tbe aisle be suddenly stopped
short, aware that every nerve In his
body was tingling. He had come face
to face with Emily Royce.
The 6eat just ahead of her wa* vacant, nnd after nn Intcrchnnge of surprised greeting ho dropped into it. If
the cardiac disturbance returned with
renewed vigor tlio squnre Jaw was «»
tense as steel, nnd no hint of the true
otnte of bis feelings was conveyed to
her,. Their conversation, moreover, kept
within bounds quite consistent with bl*
ideals of linnnr—small talk about the
Harrys, town or the view from the
window ns they sped through some picturesque bit of country. Thorpe was
thinking vaguely that this meeting
•-tilil onlv make the future leas en?.
rtiiniuio, yet in nis present contentment
he cared Utile for tlinL
Suddenly there was n Jolt of *et
brakes, then a crash, a moment of suspense In which he saw an agonized face
opposite his, and then darkness. Wben
he came to himself he was lying on bis
side beneath a pile of debris. Car
chulrs and broken boards were piled
nbovo blm. Close to blm lie saw her

"How do you treat your own workmen? Long hours nnd short pay. I

For a moment tlie member of parliament wns nonplused by the suddenness of this charge, while the audience

The day bad dawned unpleasantly,
and the young man paused In tbe act
of buckling his suspenders, gazed out
of his small window nt the dreary
landscape and sighed. This cheerful
trait was inherited from bis fulher,
wbo had sighed through a life whose
molehills wero all mountains, to be
laid away at lust under a weeping willow. Thus little Simeon wns left to
the cure and jurisdiction of his maternal grandfather, Zucliurinli Gnyley.
Simeon wns a young mnn now. Grandfather Guyley, despite the weight of
years, bore their burden with n cheerful spirit and still sought to steer some
rays of sunshine Into the somber soul
of bis depressed grandson.
"Chirk up, Simmy," be would cackle.
"Git a gal an' spark her nn' go round

One vltnl cause of the present gloom
was due to tbe fact that Simeon bad
a girl, and she hud lately shown an
alarming tendency toward more cheerful society. So Simeon looked out of
the window and sighed.
"A nice kind of Sunday this is going
to be," he groaned. "Looks like It will

whispered President Tommy MoCIuffy
(o bis next neighbor.
"Now, boys," said the lady timidly.
"I will call n number, and Unit boy

"That's me!" bowled the boys as one

about'scattering shrill advice and en-

"Boys!" sounded a clarion masculine
voice from the doorway.
The lighters fell apart shamefacedly
at the sight of Mr. McKontia, In whom
every boy of the neighborhood recognized both friend and master.
"You know better than to abuse the
hospitality of the bouse in this disgraceful fashion. Out you go. But
first, Tommy, as president, must beg
this young lady's pardon on behalf of
the club."
"Duniio w'at she calls herself," Tommy objected sullenly.
"Miss Van Bnren," replied the girl,
with n glance of intense gratitude at
her rescuer,
"Miss Van Buren, mo and tbo kids

"Certainly." And Miss Van Buren
yielded her dainty fingers to twenty

Arab Batter Making*.
Among the Arabs an interesting department of woman's duty Is dairy
work. This, like all other operations,
Is carried out on an old fashioned and
patriarchal plan. To make butter, for
instance, a small sheepskin is filled
with milk and tied to n ring in tbe
wall. Tbe woman then sits flat on the
floor aad rocks it to and fro till little
bails of butter begin to form within.
These grow lurger and larger and accumulate and are finally brought out
as one big lump. Tho remaining milk
is then boiled on the fire witb bits of
moat.. The male members of tbe family now come together; a large dish of
cooked rice Is placed before them and
(lie boiled milk poured over it. Then,
making balls of tbe mixture with his
hands, each member quickly swallows

The   Chlnc.e   Barber  nt  Work.

yonr thoro must be hundreds of acres
of Chinese bends shaved, and tails
combed out nnd dressed tbat, were they
united, would produce nn Atlnnlic cable
of bnlr. It is customary for n Chinaman to have his bend shaved and
dressed by tho barber two or three
times a month. The paraphernalia of
the street barber consists of a small
cabinet, which serves as a scat for Ids
customer and n receptacle for bis Instruments; a round, wooden caso with
metal basin for water, which Is kept
hot by a small charcoal furnace beneath; attached to this there is n pole
to indicate his profession. Wben n
customer places his bead In the bnrber's
bands bo has it steamed and rubbed
with a hot, damp cloth, then shaved;
tbe face is then shaved, including nostrils nnd ears. Tho eyelids aro then
raised and tbe eyes cleaned, after
which tlie ears are operated upon witb

Injury to   Brain or Nerves, Deficiency of Nerve Force fflean
Paralysis   anil   Helplessness.
Every muscle of the body controlled by the will is connected with the
brain, and every muscular action is
originated by nervous force, generated in the brain and transmitted
along the nerves to  the muscles.
When the nerves are injured or diseased, when there is a deiieh'iioy in
the supply of nervous energy, por-
alysis, locomotor niaxia or some
form of helplessness results because
tho brain no longer has control of
the muscles.

Tie. a Famous Landmark.
Tbe golden grasshopper ob tbe tower
of tbe Royal Exchange bas been for
nearly three and a half centuries a
London landmark as familiar as the
cross on St Paul's or tbe dragon on
Bow church steeple.
Sir Thomas Greshnro, a royal agent
In three successive reigns, founded the
exchange In the reign of Elizabeth. He
erected at his own expense a beautiful
structure in the Flemish style of architecture, with shops on the first floor. A
bell tower crowned by a huge grasshopper stood on one side of the chief
entrance. The bell In this tower summoned the merebnuts at 12 o'clock noon
and 0 o'clock evening. During the great
Are of Ititiii tbe building was totally destroyed. The statues of kings und
queens which ornamented the corridors
were precipitated Into the enormous cellars nnd with them the tower and
Gresham was loyally loved by the
metropolis, and his generous services
were not forgotten. From the mountain of debris the grasshopper was rescued, and lt was placed—a lofty vane
of gilt brass—above the new dome supported by eight Corinthian columns,
and to this hour lt swings to the points
of tbe compass, perpetuating the sign
and crest of tbe Gresham family. The
old clock in this tower had four dials
and chimed four times dally, on Sunday,
the One Hundred and Fourth Psalm;
on Monday, "God Save the King;" on
Tuesday, "Waterloo March;" on Wednesday, "There's Nae Luck Aboot the
Hoose;" on Thursday, "See, the Conquering Hero Comes;" on Friday, "Life
Let Us Cherish," and on Saturday,
"Foot Guards' March." In 1838 Are
again devastated tbo stately building,
beginning soon after 10 at night, and
by next morning the clock tower alone
was standing. It ls significant that the
last air played by tbe chimes before
they went crashing through tbe tower
roof, crushing the entrance arch below,
was "There's Nae Luck Aboot the
Hoose;" then the eight bells ceased
their clanging.
The grasshopper was unharmed and
to this day remains, eleven feet of
shimmering metal, looking down from
its perch 108 feet above the busy
streets. — Julian King Colford In St

such aa no other remedy for the diseases
and weaknesses peculiar to women ever
attained, the proprietors and makers of
Dr. Merce's Favorite Prescription now feel
fully warranted In offering to pay $500 in
legal money of the United States for any
case of ]>ucorrhea, Female Weakness,
Prolapsus, or Falling of Womb, which they
cannot curt. All they ask is a fair and
reasonable trial of their means of cure.
"I was a great sufferer for six years and doctored all the time with a number of physicians
but did not receive any benefit," writes Mrs.
Georg* Sogdeu, of 641 Bonda Street, Saginaw
(south) Michigan. " I had given up all hope of
ever gelting batter. Thought I would write to
you. When I received your letter telling me
what to do I caanuiencctl to take yonr ' Favorite
Prescription' and follow yonr advice. I have
taken ten bottles In all, also five vials of the
' Pleasant Pellets.' Am now regular, after having missed two years nnd suffered with paiu in
the hend und back. I was so nervous, could not
eat or sleep. Now I can thank you for my
Don't hesitate to write to Dr. R. V. Pierce,
chief consulting physician to tbe Invalids1
Hotel and Surgical Institute, at Buffalo,
N.Y., if you want good medical advice from
a fully qualified physician as to your personal good health. Such letters are always
answered free of cl   rgc and co .ndentiaUy,
A medicine whic has outsold all others
for women in the past third of a
century and being recommended by all
lhc«e who have used it, ia a good remedy
to tie to. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is purely vegetable and does not contain a particle of alcohol to destroy the
blood corpuscles and weaken the system.
Do not permit the dealer to insult your
intelligence by suggesting some other compound which he recommends as "lust ti
pood," because he makes it himself.
An easy way to secure trimmings
when remodelling coats, skirts and
bodices ls to cut up into pieces, or Into
fitted plaatrons, old bodices or ekirts
which are past using as they are. A
silk skirt of last year will do for trimming a cloth tailor-made suit. Cut the
silk into fitted yokes, or plastron-shaped pieces, for the bodice of bolero, embroidering them with a heavy silk; or
again, the pieces of silk cut from an
old skirt may be made to do excellent
service for the remodelling of an old
cloth skirt by cutting the silk into
shaped pieces and edging them with a
narrow binding of the material of the
skirt, or, if none of the material is to
be had, they may be edged with a narrow silk galloon. Still another way
would be to cut the silk Into a perforated pattern aind applique lt on to a
foundation band of a heavier material,
such as cloth or serge, and use the
trimming thus made for remodelling
your last year's skirt.
White flannel ls another material
which lends itself admirably to this
method of using a cut-out design ap-
pllqued on to_ another material of a
darker shade. The edgeB of the flannel
may be buttonhole-stitched, thus giving it a more solid appearance, and, lf
lt ls desired to still further subdue the
white flannel to make a suitable trimming for a darker every-day tailor-
made suit, lt may be embroidered with
an oblong-shaped French knot; or still
another way la to sew the round brass
eyelet rings, such as are used In the
finishing of waists, on to the flannel at
regular Intervals, buttonholing1 them
closely with heavy embroidery silk.
The principal alterations necessary
In the skirts need not be so much iii
the shape as In the finishing of the
plackets In the back. The skirts this
season are to be made with very wide
box-plaits and in many Instances with
triple and quad-rup'.e plaits In the
back, the fullness being from five to
six Inches in width. This fullness ls
obtained absolutely by box-plaitB or
by a cluster of slde-plalts stitched flatly: There must be width to give tills
new look to last year's skirt. In making it over there probably may not be
sufficient material, In which cas» you
might substitute i lternate bands of silk
to form the effect of a wide plait in the
back, or, again, the narrow widths of
the plain velvet galloon braids might
be used.
Sleeves are the most important thing
to change In clothes. The differences
between last year's sleeves and those of
this season nre that the fullness has
moved up towards the elbow, and that
the majority of the new sleeves are
made with long, perfectly tight fore
arm pieces, with the fullness confined
to a short space from a few Inches
above the elbow to an Inch or so below
Therefore, In doing over last year's
clothes you can re-cut the sleeves and
make the lower portions tight fitting,
or you can do away altogether with
that part of the sleeve from the elbow
to the wrist and insert new deep musketeer cuffs. For the softer fabrics,
such as voile, etamlne and crepe de
chine, lt ls pretty to have narrow clusters of tucks or shirring extending along
the Inner seam of the sleeve from the
wrist to the elbow. This removes the
plain tight look which is so apt to exist
unless these materials are made up with
some dSgree of fullness.
The sleeves of the plainer tailor-made
suits of the heavier materials, such as
serge and homespun, are very much
smaller this season.
A bishop sleeve of an old gown or
coat may be altered by adding a wide
cuftband—wide, not deep. The width
of the cuffband should be nearly equal
to the width of the sleeve.
Among the new avocations for women, that of working In mosal, has ta-
cently been opened to them. In the
side chapels of the great Roman Catho
He Cathedral which now adorns Westminster, and which is one of the most
g'rirlous specimens of modern architecture In F.ngland, high up on the scaffolding, close to the great domed roof,
y>~u can see the outline of women's
flcures, and if you care to toll up many
e'tps you will find the deft fingers of
women sorting the many-colored mo
sales and the little square discs of
gold with extraordinary swiftness and
precision, and then proceeding to use
them for this most decorative work.
The strides that women are making
iu the artistic world are remarkable.
Mrs. Stanhope Forbes has accepted a
commission to design on altor piece for
a new church In London.
This also is to be executed In mosaic
and It is said that the first sketch ia
surprising In its devotional feeling and
decorative ciuallty. Mrs. Stanhope
Forbes has recently painted some very
charming portraits, which are likely to
add to her fame.
The Hon. Mrs. Mostyn also held an
exhibition at the great Dore Galleries
Mrs. Mostyn has for the last ten years
been well-known as a politician a painter and a traveller, and the ,dst. ex
perlence of her wanderings Is gauged
by the charming collection of drawings
which were exhibited, most of these
being painted during her seven visits
to Egypt, or during the thirteen Win
ters she has spent In the South of
Our Common  Creed.
Great (rod, whom men have sought
to know,
And, seekim*. lost their sight of Thee,
How fnr, how far can renson go
To solve the awful mystery?
Tho jurriug creeds that men have
Men's little minds' conceptions tell,
Bnt only show Thy imago maimed,
Iu. tcad of making known Thy will.
Upon a thousand little themes
That canuot raise the human soul,
Thoy spend their time in empty dreams,
And, drcamiug, never rcaoh tho goal.
Methiuks if Thou   hadst wished that
Bhouklst to a commou dogma bend,
Thou wonldst bave clearly laid the plan
That thinking   men might compre-
But atill remain* ono thing we know,
Ono common creed, that "1'kon arj;
This binds ns heart to heart below,
And links us with Thyself above.

Ono only duty is our part—
In every motive, every task,
An hinost, and a loving heart.

The Convenient Light is the
Electric Light
You have Kim ply to touch the button und yonr office and room iB brilliantly
lighted, falling over chairs; no matches; no uncleaulinesB; no danger.
Electric lights can be made portable, so that yon can hang them over yow
dresser or shaving mirror, at the head of yonr bod, eto., and any desired
candle power may be obtained.
It is a Beautifying Light
Under its clear rays, faces and objects do not have that pallid, dull appear-
Tince that is caused by otbor lights; on the contrary, it shows off every- ^
thing to tho best a dvantage.   As muBio adds to tho beauty of a voice, so
doos tho eloctric light enhance tho beauty of a fnoo, the brightness of a
smile and the sparkle of tho eyos.
IT HAS NO FLAME—it emits no unhealthy fumes—it consnmes on
oxygen and doos not vitiate the air—therefore it does not canso ot aggravate asthma or other pulmonary diseases. It does not leak, ignite or
explode. It will uot kill plants or ruin wallpaper or furnishings. It is
everything that is best as a light. Up-to-date establishments and people
of refinement use it.
