It had been previously turned down

The Invitation I found waiting me
on my return from a trip south was a
great surprise. I had been private secretary to Colonel Wade for a little over
six mouths, but that was certainly no
reason why his wife should have Included tne In her list of guests.
It wns to be a masque ball, and I
hail nothing to wear. The affair was
to take place that very night, and the
fact that I was half In love with Miss
Dorothy, the colonel's oldest daughter,
iniulo nie hurry down to a eostutner's
shop. M- Clausen shook his head as
he surveyed my five feet six.
"I have nothing that will fit you, sir,"
be said, "unless you will take this
green devil costume, There were three
of the devils ordered, but two of the
gentlemen enme In yesterday and told
nie that their friend wns slek and

but It's so small I wouldn't stand a
chance of gettiug back tho cost cf the

I snid "Yes" Immediately on seeing
the costume. It was n Kiddy affair

two little horns projecting f>*nm tho
I paid M. Clausen his price, congratulating myself on getting a flue
suit so cheaply, and hastened hack to
niy rooms to try on ray purchase.
When ( presented myself at the
Newbury street house at 9 o'clock that
uight, Colonel Wade greeted me In the
hall facetiously.
"Ah! So wo nre to be honored with
other members of the fnuilly? Two of
your brothers nre already here. You're
Dr. Swain, I'll wnger."
If tbe man with whom I came In
dally contact did not recognize me, my
disguise was perfect. 1 laughed to
myself as I passed up stairs.
Ten minutes Inter I was mingling
•with ns great a crowd of notables as
were assembled on thnt famous Styx
houseboat. Several William Slinke-
speares were strolling about the room,
Napoleon Ilounpurtc was having a
desperute flirtation with .loan of Arc,
and over In one corner William Penn
was busily fanning a somewhat portly
edition of Queen Elizabeth.
As I stepped Into the ballroom I
Jostled ngainst a tall man dressed exactly like myself, except that his costume wns of a glowlug crimson. The
meeting was evidently more of a surprise to him than to me.
"Where ln hades did you come from,
Shorty '<"' he whispered, pulling me out
of the crowd.
"Wby, naturally, that's Just where
1 did come from," I answered, disguising my voice and wondering meanwhile nt sueh language even from a
brother tlend.
"I told the professor you were cooked
for six months when 1 saw the pinch
yesterday.   How did you get oul?"
"Ask no questions," 1 answered In a
solemn tone, laying my linger on my
lips. "I have leave of absence from
his sntniilc majesty himself for tonight only. Tomorrow I shull bo cooked again, ns you say."
"Well, we mustn't be seen together:
nilght cause suspicion.   See you later."
1 knew not a thing of what be was
talking about, but as Toy answers were
probably equally puzzling to blm I
Judged that we were even. Following
his advice, 1 left him and began looking for a certain young ludy.
In n few minutes I had found a
graceful Clcopntrn, whom I thought I
recognized to such nn extent that 1
wus perfectly willing to piny Antony
to her for tbe rest of tbe evening.
Dropping the high falsetto lu which
I hnd been talking to thc red devil, I
assumed my natural voice.
"Oh. Mr. Churchill! Is that you?"
exclaimed the Egyptian queen. "Why,
I'd never hnve known you tu this

"And us I've just tieen comparing
temperatures with a uelgbbor of mine
from hades you mustn't mind if there
is n certain warmth to my remarks." 1
Wo were In the midst of an interesting tete-a-tete wheu some one tapped
me ou the shoulder. Turning. 1 saw
another devil—this one elud In somber
black—behind me.
"Sorry to disturb you, but I unsl
see you for a few minutes," he said
I excused myself reluctantly to the
fair queen nnd walked toward the library with my black companion.
"Andy said you was here, but I didn't
believe him," he muttered wheu we
were alone. "I got you out here to tell
you the new plan. We hud to change
It wheu we thought you was pinched.
Wilson, the fat butler, will meet lis
three here with the keys as soon as
they start down to supper. Andy'li

back door with the team, an' .vou an'
me—we've got to git the kid. Madge is
golu' to have him tied up In a shawl
an' gagged in the first room at thc top
of the back stairs. You've got to ks's-p
watch lu the halls, for there's a dozen
fly cops hnngln' round, an' I'll see that
wc git tbe kid dowu without any holler.
I signified that I understood, shutl-
tiering nt the horrible plot 1 had accidentally discovered. Colonel Wnde
had three daughters and one son, a
baby boy scarcely two years old.
"Now, dou't go makln' any dates to
take that fairy I saw you talkln' to
down to supper, but be sharp when you
hear the signal to march dowu."
Queen Victoria and Sir Walter Raleigh came strolling Into the library
Just theu, and the black devil left me
abruptly, whispering, "If you git u
chance, that Cleoputra you was talkiu"
to has got a line bunch of stones in hot-
back hair.   We could use them too."
Leaving the library, I hastened oul
In search of my host and found him In
the drawing room chatting with Mary,
queen of Scots.
"Colonel Wade," I began excitedly,
getting him to oue side, "there's a plot
to kidnap Robert tonight while the
guests nre down at supper. The other
two devils, the butler, a servant uumed
Madge aud I don't kuow bow many
others are lu the scheme."
"And who are you?" he began, glnnc-
ing suspiciously at my livid costume.
1 took off my mask, aud never shall
1 forget the warmth of the handclasp
he gave me as he muttert*d, "Ted, my
boy, I can uever repny you for this."
Calling a servant, ho gave tlie order
for tho orchestra to play another waltz
and to wait for word from him before
striking up tho mnrch for supper. Then
be sought out the private detectives he
bad stationed In the house and told
them the plot on foot.
And while tbe crowd of poets, soldiers, heroes and hcroiucs of bygone
ages iu the ballroom were waltzing to
lhe 'tralus of "Tbe Serenade," a red
aud a black devil, a white faced nursemaid aud two trembling lackeys
marched inglorlously out the front door
and bonrded a large covered wagon
resembling an ambulance, but which

Inventor  Dnvy sod Love.
Sir Humphry Davy, tbe Inventor of
the Davy lamp, found love something
of a delusion, if uot a snare. Writing
to his mother, be said, "I am thc hup
plest of men ln the bope of a union
with a woman equally distinguished
for virtues, talents and accomplish
tnents." And In a letter to his brother
be expresses bis rapture thus, "Mrs.
Appreco has consented to marry tne,
and when the event takes place 1 shall
not envy kings, princes or potentates."
Tho widow must huve beeu a person
possessed of greut powers of fnrcinn-
tion, for Sir Llenry liollund makes
mention of her ns a lady who made
sueh a sensation in Edinburgh society
thnt even a reglus professor did noi

Widow Juson was the relict of Fanner Jason, and she carried on the farm
after ids death with even more wisdom
than he had bIiowii himself possessed
of. She was still on the brighter side
of forty, fair to look upon and was at
peace with all her neighbors until the
one to the east of her sold out and a
stranger moved ln.
lie wns a man of middle nge named
Chisiiolni, aud, being a widower, his
Bister managed tlie houso for him. If
tho Widow Jason wns one of those who
wondered whut sort of man he was,
she was the lirst to lind it out. Among
her live stock thut year were n dozen
hoi's, and It was tlie fault of her hired
man that there were holes in the
fences through which they made their
way into the potato field of the new
neighbor. She hud Just finished her
breakfast one morning when Cblsholm
wus announced, He had the courtesy
to lift his hat and give bis nnme, but
lie ulso had the blindness to add:
••Madam, your Infernal hogs have
rooted up half an acre of potatoes tor
me, nnd If you can't manage to keep
'em home I'll shoot every one of 'em'."
She looked nt him nnd snw thnt he
wns ubove the ordinary and felt that
hnd she been Introduced in the conventional way she would have been pleased to make his acquaintance. But his
rude greeting angered her, and. being a
woman with a mind of ber own, she
ut once replied:
"I can pay for all the potatoes on
your farm, aud If you come here to
threaten me you'll lind n woman wbo
don't scare!"
"Well, you keep your bogs at home."
"And you keep yourself In the same
That wns the first tilt The fences
were mended and the hogs were In despair when a high wiud blew a gate
open, and the drove spent the night lu
the same potato field. Next morning
Cblsholm drove ten of them home and
said to Widow Jason:
"Madam, there nre dead hogs belonging to you In my field. Will you have
them removed or shall I bury them?"
"You killed them, did you?" she asked.
"I did. I told you I would, and I
"Then I'll have the law on you."
"Co ahead."
She weut to law, and there wns a
suit, nnd she wns Inglorlously benten.
jni,ti l'ou..D him:,:.:.I' a i.,:ki.:i man.
Womanlike she felt pretty bitter over
it, but nt the sume time she had to
give Mr. Cblsholm credit for luck of
any bitterness. He stuted his case Id
the mildest manner and oven spoke
highly of her as a neighbor. When
she returned home after tLo lawsuit
she suid to her hired mun:
".lush, If thnt mnn Cblsholm comes
ou my laud again I want you to throw
him off."
"Yes'm. I'll do It." replied tbe sturdy
It wasn't a fortnight liefore Chls*
holm came. lie wus on bis way to tlie
house when Josh beaded him off uud
ordered blm back,   lie refused to go.
and Josh Inid hold of him tu do tlie
throwing act, but found himself a licked mini lu nbout three minutes. While
lie sat on the ground with a handful of
truss to his bleeding nose the victor
nns-sed on to the woman, who lia.l wil
Lsed the frncaafi-om the Trom Hteps

"Anil you are n chiinning widow!"
She drove to town ut once to Bl'6 her
lawyer. There was 110 In the cuss* for
him, win or lose, und he advised her to
sue, She sued nnd got beaten again.
The defendant referred to her In the
highest terms, but he ulso proved that
ber fences were out of repair. The
lawyer saw $10 more lu 11. win or lose,
nnd nil vised Josh to prbntcute for assault and buttery. "ash brought his

for four weeks the porkers hud to
make the best of their sad lot. Then
Josh left the bars down one night, act]
as the Widow was getting breakfast
BhC heard the "rack of n rifle. Hnlf un
hour later Mr. Chisholm appeared to
"Good mora lug. Mrs. Juson. Those
wretched bogs of yours rooted up my
gulden last night, and this morning I
killed another of tbem. If you want
another lawsuit, I'll drive you to town
lu my own buggy."
"And you--you've shot nnotlier?" she
"1 hnve."
"Then I'd llkt* to shoot you! You are
the meanest man in the state of Ohio!"
"Y. s'ni." lie replied, with n bow as
lie turned away.
Wtdow Jasju drove to town to consult her lawyer again. There wns $10
in It for him. win or lose, but tbls time
Mr. Cblsholm was arrested for mall-
cloua pen iUtiou. In his testimony he
referred to the plaintiff as "that lady"
and exhibited no animus whatever, but
he ulso proved that be was the one per-
seciiled. The widow's hogs would not
let blm alone. She was benten again,
uml this time a stout pen wns built,
and the hogs were shut up. Tbo farmers had of course taken sides. Some
contended that Chisholm had exhibited
a mean and uniicighborly spirit and
others that the widow had bs>en dere-
liit in not mending her fences, aud
there was much talk and discussion,
lt occurred uow aud then that tbe two
principals met on tbe highway or at
He* crossroads meeting house, but
while Chisholm lifted bis bat and bowed as if there was nothing on his mind
the widow, except for iter blazing eyes,
deemed carved of stone.
That pen held tho hogs for a long
six weeks, but hogpens, have their
weak points, and patience and peise-
vi'i'iincc will seek li.i'in out. The hot
sun warped a board ami made nn opening, and the industrious swine enlarged
It until one night they nil pnssed out
nnd beaded straight for the next farm,
They fetched up among the cabbages,
pumpkins, squashes, melons und carrots, aud during the long hours of
darkness they ran riot. They were
missed from the pen early next morning, nnd the widow sat down on the
doorstep and cried. S'.:e cried because
she was vexi'il, and sho cried because
she was p. woman. Every minute she
expected to henr the crack of Chls-
bolUl'l rifle, and she fully realized that
any further appeal to the law would
bo wasted. She wns vexed nt tho
hogs, at Josh uml ut Cblabolm. Her
tears were still falling when the new
neighbor stood before her and bowed
untl Bald:
"Mrs. Jason, those blamed hogs of
yours damaged me a hundred dollars'
worth last night."
"And bow many more hnve you killed?" she naked.
"None.    I've Just driven 'em home."
"Rut why— why"—
"Rectiuse I see hew It Is. I must
either kill off your whole drove or
build n pen myself. I shnll come over
tonight to talk to you nbout It."
He appeared an hour after supper,
and It was 11 o'clock before he went
home. Even then the "talk" was not
finished. As a mutter of fact It required a great mnny evenings and was
only concluded one winter's night
wben sbe laid her hend on his shoulder
and snid:
"If you are really sun. thnt you love
mc, then the farm, the bogs and I are
yours, and we'll brj married New
Year's day."

.Independence in thought and actic n
•upon the part of the wage earners in
the Yale-Cariboo election for the Dominion house two years ago resulted
in the placing of Chris Foley in the
field and the polling of a heavy and
aattsfactory vote.   Sinco that time
,ihe leaven has been rapidly working
in the entire province, culminating
in tbe convention ef reform bodies
and toilers at Kamloops last week;
And, as ft special result of that gathering, ft new party has been launch
ed on tho political sea in British Columbia, to be known as the Provincial
'Progressive Party.    The  platform
.adopted may be seen in another column, followed by a synopsis of several resolutions passed.   The planks
have little of the nature of radicalism
about them,  and are therefore the
more readily to bo understood and
accepted by tha electorate ut large.
Ten years ago, or even five years
back, such a platform would have
been considered revolutionary, yet
public opinion has developed and
broadened so quickly that the P.P.
P.'s stand may now be set down as
'within the scope of practicable politics.   Joo Martin's programmo is not
far removed from it in substance,nnd
certainly ak'n to it in spirit.   The
now party has grasped the public
situation where it most directly concerns ita adherents, and deals with
issues of economic and paramount
importance.   Every plunk carries a
separate issue touching thc well-being of the working classes, who com
prise the major portion of the population of tho province.   A unity of purpose and thought links all the planks
•together, being the more accentuated
by thc resolutions afterwards adopted,
/FhftP.P.P. mean business and tbey
^understand what  they  are  doing.
No candidate will be accepted unless
he signs an undated resignation with
the party, who  thus holds the reins
should his movements prove unsatisfactory.   In  doing  that  thc party
"commands faithfulness.     The  Progressives have a bright outlook be
/ore them, are boing thoroughly organized through the countrv, and are
confident of ultimate victory.   The
next provinclul election will result in
^ir'ng them at least ten members In
the legislature, of whi-'i number the
Slocan will furnish one. The balance
'of power will be with them nnd they
will use it to profit the wage earner.
