.sue opened her sapphire eyes upon
him with haughty surprise, but they
dickered uml fell under thu Bteady
regard pf his sombre ones.
"Why should WO wait?" she asked.
"I think we aro going straight
through London; in fuct, 1 know
we are,"
His lips drew togothor, nnd his
lids fell over his oyos for a moment.
"Can nothing 1 can say dissuade
.vou1.'" he nsked in a still lower voico.
"Hu yon think thut I can bear to
part with you for—how many
months? Have you forgotten what
passed between us—thoro?" Ue pointed to the torraco.
She laughed with an affectation of
contemptuous amusement.
"I don't care lor tho best of melodramas, Mr. .Shore; und I am not
likely to remember them," she said.
"And yet you do remember," ho
said, quietly. "There is no moment
when you do not remember it, even
as I do. Anil our compact dwells
with me night and day, is burned
into my very soul."
She moved her queenly head impatiently, and tried to laugh,
"Then I wish you would forgot It,
please," she said, "or cut it out of
your 'very soul.' It was a piece of
madness, the madness of a moment,
the moment of a woman's weakness,
of which you availed yourself most
fully, Mr. Shore. It was never more
than that, it could not possibly bu
more. If I woro not able to laugh at
it, I should be ashamed of It."
"Wo agreed," he said, as if she had
not spoken, "thnt if I wore master
hore you would bo m.v wifo. You
taunted me with the impossibility of
tho pact, but you swore, with the
kiss which is a woman's oath, that
you would keep it."
"It was a safe promise—a promise
In vhich there was little danger ol
fulfilment as if I had promised to bo
Queen of England when you were
King. There is tho master of Lesborough"—she raised her hand towards
the sound- of Vane's steps on the terrace—"and you are still, and will ba
but tho dependent."
"And the heir," ho said ai quietly
as beforo. "You forget that. If anything should happen to still thoss
steps forever, I shall claim the fulfilment of your promise, your oath,
His face was no paler than usual;
indeed, a spot of color had come into the sallow cheeks, but Judith
Orme fought with the shudder that
ran through her and tried in vain to
meet tho steady regard of the black
•yes with a contemptuous smile.
"You cling to    melodrama,"    she
said, with a shrug of her shoulders.
"Will you wait in England   for a
week?" he asked, as if her taunt had
not touched him.
"No!" sho replied.
"Threo days—two?" ha aaid, slowly, patiently.
"Not one!" was the Instant response. "Will you let me pass,
please? I shall bo late."
He stood asido, but as she was
sweoping by him he caught her hand
and pressed it to his lips.
"For all your gibes and mockery,
I know your hoart," he whispered.
"I can trust you. Hate is stronger
than love, and I am sure of my reward. You will keep your wordl"
—he looked atrangoly at him over
her shoulder, paused as if she were
listening to tho footsteps outsitle,
then, with a flash of the sapphire
eyes as if a latent firo had suddenly
sprung up within them, said, in a
voice almost as low as his:
"Yes, though I do not know whether I hate him or you worse, I will
keep my word "
When she had gone Julian stood
for a moment looking before him,
his tonguo moistening his hot lips.
She had spoken of madness, and ho
knew that it was the right word to
describe the passion which consumed
him, tho compact ho had made with
her. But thare is a grim method in
dome kind of madness.
Ho went out by a door at the end
of tho conservatory and, making his
way tlirough the ladies' garden, entered tho laboratory and sank into a
"She will go," ho muttored. "Aud
it is only tho sight of her that gives
me courage. When sho has gone I
shall bo as weak ns water. It is her
presence, the sound of hor voice, that
drives the fear out of my heart and
tills my voins with lire, No, I can't
wait! I can't wait! lt must be to-
"•_,:     or never!"
As ii,. spoko his face grow livid
wilh some emotion, with tho ccstacy
of fear battling with the frenzy of
desiro. Tho door oponed slowly, and
before ho could drivo the terrible expression fron. his face, Deborah entered with her noiscloss step. Ho
sturted to his foot and went to tho
table, while a thought flashed
through his brain. The woman
watched him too closely, knew too
much of him; sho was better out of
tho. way. Ho turned again slowly,
and with a sinilo signod to her.
"Is your box packed, Deborah?"
"No," sho replied, with downcast
"Then pack it," ho aaid. "I want
you to go up to-night instead of tomorrow. It will bo moro convenient. You don't mind tho short
notice? A carriage shall tako you to
tho station. Thero is a train at
eight-thirty. It will give you time?''
She raised her eyes and looked at
him with u keen hut voilod anxiety,
an anxiety bordering on dread.
"Don't send mo, Mr. Julian!" sho
said, her thin fingers moving swiftly. "Let mo stay to-night, till you
Ho looked nt her with a frown of
surprise that was not altogether assumed.
"What do you moan? What is tho
matter with you, Deborah?" he
nsked. "Why should you object to
leave horo a few hours earlier than
you intended?"
Her Speechless lips worked and her
eyes sought the floor as if thoy were
afraid to meet his,
"Let mo stay, Mr. Julian!" sho
pleaded. "You arc not well—you do
not sleep. I Watch—I can see the
light under your door. Thore—there
is something on your mind, something—" Her Angers censed and her
Inn:ili   gripped   each   other   as   lf   iho
iui'i saia too mucn.
Julian laughed noiselessly.
"Really, I don't know what can
be the matter with you, Deborah!"
he said, with an impatient gesture;
but her strange reluctance to leave
hiin only made him more determined
that she should go. "If you said
that you were not well it would bo
more to the purpose; in fact, I've
noticed that you've not been looking
the thing lately. This place does not
suit you. Now, don't arguo any
longer, my good Deborah. 1 want
the London rooms put straight by
tho time I get up thero to-morrow—
for 1 leave here to-morrow—and I intend you shall go to-night."
Sho made a gesture of resignation—
it was almost Oriental in its emphasis—and busied about tho room
putting a thing hero and there iu its
place. Presently she touched him on
tho shoulder nervously and pointed
to the cords of the ventilator.
"They are nearly broken," she
Julian glanced up and then turned
"1 know! I know!" ho snid, impatiently. "It doos not matter; thoy
will last.   Let them alone, please!"
She moved towards the door, but
paused and looked at him with a mixture of affection, entreaty and despair: then she raised her hunds and
snid on them, slowly, as one reluctantly preferring a claim, recalling an
"Mr. Julian, I—I served your father faithfully. I have served you, for
love of him and yourself. I—I nursed you. I'd have laid down my
lifo for him, I'd lay it dowu for you,
Mr. Julian—"
He nodded, as if he were schooling
himself to bo patient  with her.
"I am not like othor women. I
nin deaf and dumb, but when any
lixuble has threatened you or him I
have known it, known it though no
word has been spoken, no sign, that
others could read, has been made.
There—there is troublo threatening
now." She shuddered. "I know—
who should know better?—when thero
is something on your mind, and there

it now! Mr. Julian—ah, for .Cod's
sake don't do it! She's not worth
it! She's beautiful—oh, I know, I
know; but sho's not worth it!"
Julian's face went white and into
his eyes crept the reflection of the
nameless terror and dread which
shone glassily in hers; then he
laughed, a laugh that sounded forced
and ghastly in the face of the woman's terror, and, taking out his
purse, he held out some money.
"Here's your fare, Deborah," he
said, gently enough, but his lips,
though thoy smiled, declared his inflexible determination.
As she took the money she clung to
his hand and slid to her knees, her
livid faco turned up to htm imploringly.
"Master, I see more than most,

She protested, pleaded no longer,

to its muster, bent her head resignedly unil went out
Julian stood frowning for a moment or two, gnawing ut his lip us if
he were asking hiiuseli how much she
guessed, or whether it was only an
exhibition of nerves; then, with u
gesture, the Spanish gesture' which
wipes away a distasteful subject,
went up to dress.
The dinner that night wns a very
bright one. Judith, in u wonderful
dress which set off her marvellous
beauty to perfection, talked ulmost
unceasingly, her eyes shining liko
stars, her lips, usually so Immobile,
curved with the smile which women
wear when they are happiest—or wish
you to think them so. Vane, with
his grave regard, looked from her to

The Soeae of a Fumoun and Eventful
Prayer Meetiug;.
The most famous prayer meeting ever
convened In this country was held lu
the summer of 180(1 on the grounds of
a farmer adjacent to Williams college,
Williamstown, Mass., says Leslie's
Weekly. It was held by five students.
They were querying what tbey could
do for the benefit of mankind, A thunderstorm occurred, and they took refuge under a haystack and continued
the meeting. Seemingly the students
alone for tlie time being knew of tho
meeting. For yenrs the place was unmarked nnd the event iineoiumoiuorut-
ed. But those students originated the
foreign rrissionury movement iu this
country for the benefit of nil lands nnd
peoples. Subsequently Williams college
acquired the property, named it Mission park and erected n monument
commemorative of the great result. It
consists of a shaft of granite twelve
feet In height, bearing a globe throe
feet In diameter, representing the
world. The legend on the shaft Is,
"The Birthplace of American Foreign
Missions." Underneath nre the names
of five students who had a part In the
meetiug—Samuol J, Mills, James Richards, Francis L. Robbius, Harvey Loomls nnd Byram Green. This memorial
ls nn object of Interest to every visitor
to Williamstown, and at every commencement a religious servico Is held

Old Time Illumination With tutmii
and Candlea.
In thoso days of electric lights, with
all tbelr capabilities for brilliant illumination, It is amusing to read what
the subject! of George II. considered
a dazzling effect. A Frenchman visiting ln London at tbe time of the coronation of that monarch in 1727 writes
enthusiastically lu praise of the lighting of the city as well as of a banquet display.
"Most of the streets," writes M.
Saussure, "are wonderfully well lighted. In frout of each house bangt
a lantern, or large globe of glass, Inside of which Is placed a lamp which
burns all night. Large houses have
two of these suspended outside the
doors by Iron supports. Some even
have four."
How one arc light would bave dazzled the good people of that day I
"Wben the coronation procession entered Westminster hall," tbe wrltei
continues, "the light of day was beginning to fade. Forty chandeliers, In
shape like a crown, hung from the celling, each havlug thirty-six wax caudles.
"On the king's appearance all suddenly lighted, and every one In the
room was filled with astonishment at
the wonderful and unexpected illumination. Little cords of cotton wool,
Imperceptible to the eye, saturated
with sulphur of sn'ltpeter, spirits of
wine nnd other lugredlents, had been
prepared and arranged so as to carry
the flame rapidly from one candle to
another. Tbe arrangement had been
so skillfully prepared that scarcely a
caudle failed to take fire."
It  It Ono  of the   Perfections   of  the

slower still to give lt. A gentleman
subdues bis feelings and controls bis

Iu the cultivation of courtesy self
respect must play a prominent part.
We muBt never pass for more than the

Oue of the perfections of the gallant
man lies lu the supremacy of self control. Herbert Spencer, speaking of this
Important attitude of man as n moral
being, tald, "Not to be Impulsive, not
to bo spurred hither and thither by
each desire that ln turn comes uppermost, but to be self contained, self
balanced, governed by tbe Joint decision of the feelings ln council assembled, before which every action >

tbnt It It an excellent thing, several

"Why, everything we eat, almost, has

ftecorda Locate Profit  and  I.oaa  and
Help the Feeder.
The condition of the farming industry as seen on the average form points
to the need of better business methods
uud more definite knowledge of the
sources of profit nud loss. In no department-connected with the farm Is
there more need for absolute data than
In the dairy.
The records of progressive and un-
progressive dairymen indicate that
there is no business which shows a
greater range of profit thnn thnt of
dairy farming. Investigations of creamery patrous Illustrate tbls most strikingly and show that one dairyman frequently makes double the profits of bis
Good judges believe tbat one-fourth
of the cows of the entire country kept
for milk do not pny tbe cost of keeping
and nearly one-fourth more fall to
yield an annual profit.
Records of the performances of dairy
cows form the only accurate and safe
basis for judging their value. It Is the
constant ulm of progressive dairymen
to Improve their herds, and such Improvement must depend largely upou
culling the herd and getting rid of the
unprofitable animals. From the breeders' standpoint records are especially
valuable ln assisting ln finding customers for their stock. Many buyers
insist on seeing records of duiry performance before purchasing.
A record is also of great help to the
feeder. If he knows exactly what a
cow is doing he can prepare the ration
accordingly and often feed more economically. Again, a daily milk record
enables a dairyman to detect the approach of sickness in a cow and thus
to take steps to ward lt off.
Minimum  Standard.
The New York state dairymen's convention passed a resolution favoring a
minimum stuudard not only for milk,
but for cream, butter and cheese, and a
provision for tbe higher standards under registration with the department'
of agriculture, higher standards to be
labeled and signs to be displayed on
wagons, in places of business, etc., and
a sufficient penalty for false registration. If some encouragement of this
sort could be offered, It would seem
that more milk testing above 3 per
cent might be sold. Then, too, there
would be some chance for a farmer to
sell ou a test basis and not be compelled to sell 5 per cent or C per cent
milk at the same price that ls paid for
3 per cent milk, says a writer lu Na-
tioual Stockman.
Clover and Lime.
When the common red clover, after
taking root ln the spring, ls found later lu the season to be making no
growth and finally disappears ln patches
or altogether, then the need of lime is
indicated. The appearance of the
plant known as sorrel, or horse sorrel,
Is a further Indication of the need of
lime.—Ohio Experiment Station.

This is a poor time of year for funerals.   Better not leave the care of

By the Common Senae Route.
If the average farmer is to become a
good dairyman he must learn tbe business  by  degrees.   Let him  take the
common cows he bas on his farm, and
by careful breeding and selecting let
him build his herd and bis knowledge
of the business up to a point where he
can make a success of real dairying,
says Kimball's Dairy Farmer.
Nothing Beats Cew Keeping.
For the young and energetic man
who wants to start out right, make
money, keep up the fertility of his
farm and win a reputation as a successful farmer there Is nothing that
beats cow keeping.
Not an Baty Job.
Now, gloss lt over as slick writers
and persuasive talkers may, the fact
remains that dairying is not a business
of moderate demands. To succeed at
lt, even with the very best of special
tools nnd the most refined brand of
dairy knowledge, requires that a man
shall put a vast amount of his life, his
energy und bis individuality Into it—

a Jersey that will uot make ten pounds
a week or give over ten quarts of milk
a day with her second calf at three
years old is not worth keeping, says a
writer In American Agriculturist And
do not forget that fawn colors or solid
colors, with black tongue and switch,
do not mnke a Jersey pure bred, nor
does a cow with white—and lots of It
too—sometimes make a cow a grade.
A Vital ttueatiea.
With the advent of creameries, skim
mlng stations and hand separators the
question of successful and economical
raising of calves on skim milk Is one
of growing Importance and vital concern to every creamery patron and
private dairyman. As land increases
In value we can no longer afford to
keep a cow the entire year for raising
one calf to be used as a feeding steer.

Gold Ifaed In Jewelry.
France heads the list as the country
which uses up most gold in the making
of Jewelry. Her jewelers work up
3(5,000 pounds weight of gold every
year—that is, about ouc-thlrtieth of the
whole amount produced. Great Britain
accounts for an almost equal quantity,
and the United States takes 32,000
pounds weight for similar objects,
while German craftsmen for that couutry worked up 30.000 pounds of virgin
gold lu the lust year. Small as Switzerland Is, she nbsorbed nearly 20,000
pounds weight of line gold, while Italy
and Russia betweeu them took a similar amount We cnn procure no accurate statistics from Turkey or India or

3,300 pussenger cars nnd 340,000

good idea of the relative importance of
passenger and freight truffle to a large
railroad. Tbe rail mills started tbe
new year with orders for 2,500,000 tons
on their books.
"Iu spite of these great orders and In
spite of the best efforts of the railroad
managers pile after pile of thousands
of bushels of corn bas been heaped up

•In aditlon to the cases of longevity
