"I'm sure-sir, yon nre very polite," sal l
the weary. Mrs. Miles,, gratefully, Mid
Beaton escorted her to the long bench iu
the center of the room, where she sat
dowu with a groan."     ' i
"This is a clever picture,",said Malt- !
land, who kept his place by Miss Vivian.
"It is wonderful/' alio said, in n low J
tone, as if absorbed In contemplation; lie.' |
voice was naturally soft, and her ncee.it
inirly good.    "I never thought, anything
could be painted like it; there.'are some'
bits of moorland near my. home, ami I
have seen the clouds gather over them
just like those. 1 almost feci the cold
breeze that generally conies up with the
ruin; and those distant blue hills, how
far away they look—Unit is.what I cannot do when I try to paint, I can nut
make the distance look far."
"A few mouths' study with a good
master would help yen over that dittl-
culty," said Mnitlund, kindly, « feeling
of compassionate interest drawing him
lo the speaker, "You arc an trtist,
then V"
"I wish I were, Mr. Dnrgnu has agreed
to let me have lessons, nnd I shall, work
hard, so hard."
"Work hard!" echoed Beaton, returning to her side ss she tipoko. "What a
tremendous resolution! May I ask what
is the object to be attained V"
Miss Vivian colored slightly, aud looked down "as if she thought 3ie was laughing at her. "I want to learn drawing,'
she said simply.
"Then Mr. Tilly must find you a good
master. Una he any idea whom to employ?"
"Oh, I suppose so."
"It is very important to find the right
mam," said Beaton gravely. "What master do you thiukVif, Mr. Tilly, foisa. Miss
"I really have not an idea on the subject," replied Tilly nervously. "I never
had anything to do with art or artists.
No doubt Mr. Dargan, who 1* aim -st
universally informed, will be able to supply our needs."
"I don't fancy art is much in his liuoj
either," said Beaton, with uu air of careless superiority,' ".Now. I know one or
two good men, and shall be most happy
if I can be of use to Miss Vivian"
"It would be doing me a great service,''
cried Mr. TiHy, with o look of relief. "1
have been a good deal troubled how to
gratify this whim of ray ward's."
"You must not call it a whim." said
Benton, smiling, and looking down nt
-Miss Vivian as if they understood each
other. "It is a laudable nnibition, and
n charming taste. Will you allow nie to
tee some of your drawings V"
"Yes, then, If you understand about
art, you can tell me if I urn worth teaching," she returned, with a quiet earnestness.
They moved on to look at the other
pointings, and Maitland noticed that the
little countrified girl was always attracted
by landscapes and animals, and moreover, showed a wonderful amount of disci iiuiimtion in her observations.
He remarked Hint she did not seem to
cure for 'human figures and faces. "I
suppose it is because I have seen more
of the comirry and four-footed creatures
than I have of people," she returned. "It
fceoins to me that I understand them better. Do you draw?" she asked with some
timidity, looking straight into Ws eyes
as she spoke. "You feel the pictures mor.-.
than he does," and (the looked toward
Beaton with a little nod.
"He must know more than I do about
«rt; I do not draw, I only ignoruhtly wor
fc'hip," returned Maitland.
"1 urn sorry." Something in her voice
suggested that site would prefer being as-
i-i-ted by him thuu by his friend.
"You will liud no lack of Instructors,
Miss Vivian."
'"i^ho diillcult.v will be to choose among
the multitude," soiu Beaton.
"Weill, my dear," said poor Mr. Tilly,,
who had looked frequently toward ihe'
door, with an expression of intense wcari-
I'iss, "1 suppose you have seen enough
for one duy, and I—I have tin uppjinl
ante, n "
"Vou arc very tired," said his ward,
kindly, glancing at him.
"Why lose your time here, then':" ask
ed Beaton, blandly. "We shall be iloiighl-
cil to lake charge of Miss Vivian and
Airs. - I did not catch the imine, ami
see Iheiii safely c:i route home."
"If you would lie so good," said Mr.
Tllfe, hesitating.
"1 Khali be most happy, so will Maitland."
"I do not want to stay much longer,"
fluid Miss Vivian, "if I can conn- soo'i
again. Then- ha a great picture of a
t-hurict race in the next room; I should
like to look at it, then I shall he quite
ready to go."
"Then 1 shall bid you good morning,
my-dear, and good-bye for the present, I
nm going lo the north for n few days.
'Jlhey have discovered a cuiious tomb in
the wall of an oM church near TfclrlStanj
and I wnnt lo have a look at it. Meantime, If you need advice or assistance—a
—a—you have my excellent colleague, Mr.
Duo-gun, at hand. Uood morning, Mr.
Beaton; good-moming, Mr. Mail land."
nnd with a bow to Mrs. Miles, who was
otill nodding in the scat Benlca bad found
for her, the old gentleman walked away
with much alacrity.
•'Poor old boy! itis really to bad to ilivt
hiro about. Don't you think 1 might fill
the place of guide, philosopher, u,nn
friend and leave hira at peace?" exclaimed Beaton, looking after him with a
' "Thank you, you arc very kind. If it
would not be too much trouble I should

I ought to see. Mrs, Miles and I feel
very lost here, and we might almost as

Champagne colors are now a great
deal worn; and, particularly, for evening;. The yellow Is what might be called a sparkling yellow; and in It there
Is a softness which looks a little like
red. A champagne colored taffeta was
trimmed with black silk tassels of the
short, fat variety. These extended over
the shoulders; tassels trimmed the girdle, and they were massed In little
bunches at each side of the lace fichu,
and were used to head the flounce which
trimmed the skirt.
A gown of taffeta, eithe- glased or
dull, can be made up very plainly and
with as good effect as though elaborately planned. The bodice can be a round
one, cut on the shirt waist pattern. And
if It be trimmed with si' e cops embroidered with a few black stars, and
if It has a little embroidery upon the
vest, it will come out very well and
within fashion's requirement, though a
great deal more can be done to make
It more extreme In style.
A pretty bit of greenery can be had
for the dining-room table by getting a
small open willow basket (a school
Child's lunch basket will do nicely), line
It with florist's moss, Oil with rich loam
and plant in It the curly-leafed variety
of cress seed. Keep It on a sunny shelf,
turning It dally to make It even all
round, and the basket soon becomes a
mass of feathery green. When the
basket gets dry It Is plunged Into a pan
of tepid water. Keep It evenly trimmed, the prunlngs helping to garnish a
dish or furnish a dainty salad.
' Oeranlum promises to be the color of
the new year. Geranium colored gowns,
all one clear, beautiful tone, are being
made, and fl: were of brilliant geranium
tints are being embroidered upon bod
ices and skirt panels.
And could anything be prettier for
evening wear? Under the glare of the
electric lights, or In the more shaded
glow of candle or gas, the bright red
comes out In brilliant beauty, bringing
out the charms of the wearer and the
softness of her surroundings with equal
There Is a something about geranium
color which appeals to one. It is, as a
French modiste said, a sympathetic
color. It agreeB with one's modes; and
what Is more to the point, It Is becom
Ing to nearly every one from the ash
blonde to the deep brunette. It is a
universal tone, and few women can afford to be without at least one gown of
this kind In her wardrobe.

Btrong rival of South America in the
production of rubber. A German planting company has purchased the primeval forests of Malende, on the bank'of
the_Siongo river, where rubber .trees
were first ilisi-uvcicil by Dr. I'liul
Preuss. Seed selected in Malenile has
been plunle.d in Sopiio. and tbe product
of these trees hears n remarkable resemblance to Pnrn rubher ami brings
good prices in the Hamburg market.
The number of rubber trees already
planted by tho company exceeds 200,-

requests that the people protect the
wild trees when found and plant others. Because, of the greater profit in

I-'aiuona  Duel  In  llie  Hay.  of Good
.    ,   Queen Anac.
Iii the reign-of good Queen Amu:
duels we're no less frequent than In
.the rowdy, riotous days of Charles II.
Lord Mohun, a dlssolutei remorseless
nobleman, was the .terror of honest
London citizens at this time, and
many were the infamous escapades In
which he played chief character. He
was guilty of one act which bears no
oilier name than that of murder—tbe
killing of poor Mountford, tbe actor,
in cold bloodjbecause he endeavored to
protect tbe hoiior of Mrs. Brucegirdle.
the famous and beautiful actress. ' It
was Lord Mohuu who fought and killed the Duke of Hamilton, un affair
Which all will remember who have
read Thackeray's great novel, "Esmond." ' .,..
The duel was fought with swords In
Hyde park, the challenge having been
sent by Mohun to the did;e, who luull
witli perfect accuracy, slated that one
pf Mohun's creatures "had neither
truth nor Justice in 'him.'' ihc Duke
of Hamilton received a wound In the
right side of tbe leg about seven inches
long, another in the right arm, n third
in the upper part of. the breast, rjtn-
nlng downward toward the bodyi a
fourth on the outside of the left leg.
Lord' Molnin himself was mortally
wounded, receiving* large wound in
the groin, nnother in the right side
through the body, In which the sword
plunged right up to the hilt, and a
third in bis at'iu.. There: is no doubt
ho rightly deserved -his death, because,
departing from' the rules of fence
among men of honorr her shortened bis
sword, thrust under his opponent's
guard and stubbe'il the duke in tbt
mauiicr of a coinmori'nssSssin.   •-'    -'

The growth of the yeast plaut Is so
rapid that Its individual cells can be
seen under the microscope to spring up
as bud's upon the parent cell and to
grow to full site. These presently give
off buds'themselves that expand-in-
like manner. In the case of the'yeast
plant the cells remain attached to each
other and thus form branches of elongated cells fixed end to end. In other
Cases the buds drop off, so that" the
plant never takes any definite shape,
but remains as a mass; of free coll*

A queer case ot superstition which
resulted In tho loss of two lives is re:j
ported from Hungary. A peasant ll'v
ing In N'os/.tany died of heart disease
while attending uiatket In Kurd.' Hut
relatives started to take the body,home,
but were forcibly prevented from carrying the body through tho village of.
lharos, whose'lhliablttints believed tliut
the passage of a strange corpse throifgb
their town would bring endless uilijfor-
tune to it. Tbe procession returned to
Kurd, and tbe next day It set out again,
this time with an escort of gendarmes.'
When it reached lharos It was met by
the whole population of the village,
armed wjtlt scythes, pitchforks, axes
aiid anything1 that cimlfl be used, as o>
weapon. The gendarmes were forced
to fire three volleys before they could
get through the place. Two'oV tfiet.Vlb
