"I don't want to marry him! So
thore!" The girl's rebellious frame of
mind showed Itself in every line of her
taut little figure nnd pouting face.
"Methinks the lady doth protest too
much," quoted her high school sister
mischievously. "I believe you have a
secret hankering, after all, Honeybee,
to try experiments ln melting Icebergs,
even English ones, which excel all other kuown varieties in general fiappe-
Bee blushed guiltily under Nell's Parthian shot and appealed te the other
member of this "quorum of the Carter
family committee," as Nell, the Incorrigible, styled these after breakfast councils.
"Mamma, you don't approve of these
International marriages cither. You
know you don't," accused Bee.
Her mother smiled amusingly. "I
think a man who haiin't t>et foot on bis
native heath during the entire Inst half
of his thirty yenrs '.-an hardly be said
to have all his nationality clinging to
hlm still."
"Yes; I told him Inst night when he
wns waiting for you, Bee," put In Nell
solemnly, "thnt I ifbnsidercd hlin quite
Americanized. 'By which you-nh-
niean civilized, I fnwncy,' he drawled.
'Preznctly,' I replied, sweef—
"Oh, Nell, you didn't show oft any of
your verbal corpses of murdered king's
English, nnd he so very correct ln his
speech!" broke ln Bee, quite horrified.
Then she sighed, returning to'tho ral-
son d'etre of this council meeting. " 'So
very correct'—that phrase embodies the
wbole life and personality of the Hon.
John Mountby, late of Britain, now of
Wall street He is so correct in his love-
making that it is not lovcuiaking nt
ail, only courtship. He takes me to the
opera, is properly generous ln the mutter of chocolates nnd violets and bestows upon me all the'attention that
the proprieties require ln n personally
conducted affair de—de"—
"Marriage," prompted Nell sympathetically. "That's just the trouble, eb,
ma chere? No occur in lt, Just marriage."
"Helen," remonstrnted her mother,
"wherever do you get such Ideas, I
wonder? It's quite improper, and you
only sixteen"—
"And never been kissed, which drawback we will now proceed to remedy,
morasy, dear," wheedled the girl, with
a coaxing expression on her piquant
face nnd a resounding smack ou her
mother's check.
"Don't be foolish, Noll," remarked
Mra. Carter, but with an unrcprovliig
twinkle In her eye. "This ls a serious
matter. Now, Beatrice, my child, why
don't you wish to marry Mr. Mountby'/
I hud rather hoped—lie is wealthy,
steady and sincere, with no bud habits.
'livery inch n man,' your father says,
with no frills about hlm"—
"That's Just lt, mamma. He hasn't
nny frills, und I like frills. Every woman does. She needs to be told she is
nii-e In order to keep her nice"—
"Is that why you're so nice to Larry
Moore's blarney?"* questioned Noll demurely. Bee and Larry always quarreled unmercifully. She ignored this
taunt and went on with dignity:
"Mr. Mouutby's face is always so Impassive, such terribly good form. He
Is so reserved nnd 6tnnd-ofllsh. He never gives compliments, except thc most
laboriously made for the pur ose ones.
He never says anything about love-
only wants u wife. He hasn't as much
sentiment us—as—Topsy here." And
Bee picked up her woolly pet and
burled her pretty faco and n hnlf sob
In his friendly silken coat. Topsy
showed his canine sympathy by licking the soft cheek, down which a tear
was furtively stealing.
"Well, dear," concluded the mother,
Willi a gentle sigh of regret, as she
arose to leuve the dining room, "you
need not marry nny ono you do uot
"Oh, I didn't say"— bpg(in Bee quickly, nnd bit her tongue, catching Nell's
merciless eye.
"But"— Mrs. Carter paused, with her
hand on the door—"remeinber one
thing, my daughter—men, even Ameri
can men—don't hang their best feelings
in the sight of all eyes."
"Hero endeth the lirst lesson," Impiously concluded Nell, "or Is it the
fourth or the seventh? How many
have there been anyway, Bee? There
was Tom aud Chester and Larry aud"—
"Well, I shall refuse this one anyway," rebelled the candidate for matrimonial honors. Aud the council
meeting adjourued.   .

for his answer. He wus tbe personification of good form, from his smoothly parted balr and boutonniere gardenia to his aggressively correct patent
leathers. His well inoculated voice
wus ns culm when he inquired for Miss
Carter ns though he had called for the
menu ut Sherry's. If he felt any trepidation over his Impending fate, he
certainly showed none lu his imperturbable manner.
This balmy spring evening Bee had
determined that the stage setting for
her haughty refusal of tliis Impassive
Englishman should be quite ln keeping
with the tragedy of the act Itself. So
she had directed Jenkins to send her
caller to the Lilac walk, her own particular bit of bowery green in the
grounds back of her suburban home.
She hnd made n studiously unstudied toilet on strict Melba at the spinning wheel models. Her simple white
gown shimmered ln the moonlight.
When she rose from the bench by the
Ivy grown sundial, an English Importation, and enme to meet him, Mountby
thought he had never seen anything
more lovely. It made him think of the
rising of the evening star. But nil he
said was a stiffly formal word of greeting nnd the old, old—
"How charming you look this evening!"
Bee hated the wornout phrase. It
wns nn added fillip to her wrath, and
she led blm vindictively to his doom
under the budding lilacs.
When it wns over she bQheld the Immovable, well bred face in the moonlight, no sign of nny havoc wrought
by her. She bade him a curt good
night, to which hurt vanity nnd stifled
love and longing gave an added hardness.
As she turned toward the house nnd
looked up to the light In her mother's
room she longed to throw herself into
thnt haven of refuge and burst into a
storm of tears. Hor mother's words of
tho morning came back to her, "The
deepest love remains unsaid." rerhtlps
nfter all he might have cared. Anyway she would walk for awhile under
the lilacs. She wont bnck slowly to
the scene of her carefully planned
tragedy. Somehow lt wasn't so dolefully pleasant ns the opera scene sbe
bad imagined lt would bo.
No, he had not gone. He was lean*
Ing heavily upon tho old sundial, and
his broad shoulders were shaking violently with the terrible, dry, tenrless
sobs of a man who bad gone down into thc deep. The girl hnd never seen
n man cry before, nnd lt frightened
her. All tbe shut-In floods of love and
longing in her tender little soul were
let loose nt the dreadful sight
She put her arms nbout his neck
and kissed the pale face, passive no
longer, but distorted with grief.
"I know It's n dream, darling, nnd
will fade in a minute," he whispered
brokenly. "But I wish to God I'd never wake again!"
"It isn't a dream, dear," she answered tremulously as bis arms closed
about her, "unless It's love's young
dream, and we need not wnke nt all."
When Monte-Christo Went Down.
The first day I worked like a Trojan,
only stopping nt 7 p. m. to snatch a
bite. At last at 8:15 p. m. the curtain
went up on tho first net, nnd the show
wus on. Everything ran remarkably
well until thc scene of tbe escape from
the prison. In tbis climax Monte-
Chrlsto is thrown ln the surging sen,
sewn up in n bag. As he strikes the
water he cuts thc bag open and, climbing up on a rock, the stage lightning
flushing nbout him, cries out above the
storm, "The world ls mine, mine the
treasures of Monte-Christo!" while the
spray of the ocean dashes over him.
Bight here was where I struck n
snag. It was the duty of the property
mnn to create thla spray by throwing
baiidfuls of rock suit out from the
wings over the shoulders of Monte-
Cbristo. That night the stage manager
guvc me a pall of salt nnd told me to
throw It over the hero the moment he
mounted tho rock, so, ns the curtain
went up, I stood, pall In hand, ln readl-
ne.-is. Monte-Christo made his appear-
un.'P, and at the stage manager's signal
I let tlie salt go—not a handful, but
the entire pull. Full In the actor's face
It struck, nnd straightway from tho
rock he tumbled, while tho curtain descended amid roars of laughter.—Leslie's Monthly.
A Dead Letter and m Lively One.
The world Is never tired of anecdotes
which bring out the play of fancy nnd
huhior ln the mind of Henry Ward
Beecher. The great preacher had tho
faculty of extruding amusement for
himself nnd others from the most commonplace occurrences. Thc postmaster
of Brooklyn informed him thnt one of
his letters had been returned from the
dead letter office, nnd this ls the wny
the affair struck Beecher:
Oct. 2S, 1880.
Colonel McLeer:
Dear Sir—Your notice that a letter of
mine was dead and subject to my order
ls before me.
We must all dlo. And, though the pr*-
mature decease <if my poor letter sliould
excite a proper sympathy (and I hope It
docs), yet I am greatly sustained under
the affliction.
What was the date of Its death? Of
what did It die? Had lt In Its Inst hours

have any effects?
Will you kindly see to Its funeral? 1 am
strongly Inclined to cremation.
May I ask If any other letters of mine

after the funeral.   Affectionately yourH,

Genernl Barlow of the Union army
fell wounded aud, It was thought, dying during the first day of the battle of
Gettysburg and withiu the Confederate
lines. Genernl Gordon, cantering by,
saw him and recognized him. Dismounting, he approached the prostrate
man and inquired what he could do for
"I am dying," snid Barlow. "Just
reach into my coat pocket, draw out
the letter you find there nud rend it to
me. It ls from my wife."
Gordon read the letter.
"Now, general," said Barlow, "please
destroy that letter. I want you to notify her—she is In the town over yonder
—what hns happened to me."
"I will," replied Gordon.
He sent for Mrs. Barlow, giving her
safe conduct through tho southern
lines, nnd then rode nwny. certain that
Barlow's death was n question of only
a few hours ut most.
But Barlow did not die. His wifo
enme promptly and had hiin removed
to the town of Gettysburg, where alio
nursed him so faithfully that he recovered.
Many yenrs passed until one night
both genernls were guests at n dinner
ln Washington. Some one brought
them together nnd formally Introduced
them. Time had altered the personal
appearance of both.
"Are you any relation to the General
Barlow who was killed nt Gettysburg?" nsked Gordon.
"Ves; n very near relation," nn-
swered Barlow, with a laugh. "I nm
the very man who was killed. But I
have been Informed that a man named
Gordon lost his life in battle later on.
He saved my lifo at Gettysburg. Aro
you any kin to that man?"
"I am he," was thc reply.
Both heroes laughed us they gave
each   other   a   heartier   handshake.

Jewelry and Magic.
Finger rings, earrings, bracelets,
brooches nnd other nrtlcles of personal
adornment originnted not from the a*s-
thetic sense of our remote ancestors,
but from their belief in magic. Even
civilized men today sometimes entertain n superstitious regard for small
stones and pebbles of peculiar shape or
color nnd carry them about as charms.
The Greeks and Asiatics used stones,
beads and crystals primarily us amulets and cut devices on them to enhance their magical power. The use of
such stones as seals was secondary
and may nt first have boon for sacred
purposes only. When n primitive people first flud gold they value it ouly
for its supposed magic and wear nuggets of it strung with beads.

Outside It was raw and gusty, witli
white, high lying clouds scudding so
thickly across n pale sky that only
wan nnd watery sunshine strained
through tho breaks between. Inside
there was the balm of May, especially
ln the south parlor, where I knew I
should find Myrtilla.
Myrtilla ls tall nnd twenty, with a
child's foot and n turn of the bend nnd
neck that would become nn empress.
Sho hus corul red lips, a line, straight
nose, olivo skin, dtyrk almond eyes,
heavily lashed and lidded, nnd n low,
straight brow, deeply shadowed by
dusky floss silk hair. In virtue of nil
this she reigns us a qucon over most
men. We had been engaged until two
weeks ago—to bo exact, until thc dato
of the Verinews' ball nnd the opisodo
of tho Grantley girl.
The ball ls ancient history now; besides, it has really nothing to do with
the case. I left off dancing—with the
Grantley girl nt 4 a. in.—to lling myself
into tweeds nnd' set forth upon a
week's Journey. Coming homo from
it, I found my table cumbered with
my letters to Myrtilla down to the
most fragmentary note—thoso of the
last week unopened—my ring, my
books, n bracelet or two, tho locket
with my picture nnd n litter of thoso
idiotic things ono sends ut Christmas
and Easter and on birthdays. It was
this litter that saved me from utter
despair. I reasoned that if Myrtilla
had cared enough for me to keep it all
this time she could not give up caring
for me in n moment.
Still, I knew there was a touch job
ahead. But I did not dream she would
go to the length of refusing to see or
hear me or even to listen to my side of
the caso through Aunt Bab, most tactful of intermediaries. Hor people backed her, too-all but Dicky. Dicky is
fifteen and owns the distinction of being the only thing in trousers Myrtilla
has found herself unable to subjugate.
I cannot flatter myself that Dicky's
advocacy of my cause was wholly disinterested. Dicky has a fine taste ln
terrier pups and a relish for stolen gallops on my hunters. At home he is allowed nothing more hazardous than a
steady going cob. However that may
he, It meant a lot to have nny sort of
friend at court. Otherwise, how sliould
tho hall door have swung open at my
approach? The servants had strict orders to shut It civilly In my face.
"She's In tliere. lt boats mo why you
want hor, why you want any girl, when
you've got heaps of dogs and horses,"
Dicky said, grinning, as I shot past
him. "She's been real hateful polite;
no good for even a light this whole
week," Dicky's voice pursued me down
thc hall.
The south parlor Is a square jut, open
tipon three sides to the sun, with walls
more than half windows, iron barred
outside and full of green growing
things within.   Thero is a big fireplace.
Myrtilla stood In front of It, her eyes
Intently fixed upon the smoldering logs.
At my entrance sho started ever so lit-
| tie, turned her head tho least bit and
j kept on staring in the lire.
"Myrtilla,"   I   ventured   irresolutely,
i my hand still on the doorknob.
|    She sat down and took up her em*
! broidery, her face still further averted.
Then I knew I bad won half a point.
I If she had boen as angry as she be-
j lieved  herself to be sho  would  havo
marched away with her nose ln the air.
!    I began again formally, "Miss Qrey,"
but stopped short.    Sho had begun to
whistle over ber work softly, meditatively, as though she knew herself to
be alone.
Something happened then. I am neither poet nor romancer, but my ranging
eye saw In tho south window a crea-
turo of tropic charm, slim and tai),
green gowned as a wood nymph, with
wonderful golden tawny eyes and n
crown still moro wonderfully red A3
I went to her sho shivered and set all
her green gown Battering defensively,
but I paid no heed to It, only said joyously, baring my head:
"Amaryllis! Ymi are a real godsend!
I was never so glad to see any one lu
all my life."
Myrtillii's bend came around so that
I saw her profile out of tho tall of my
eye, 1 fancied she stand, but dared
not mako sure of it. My wood nymph
barely nodded; ber tremors wero all at
rest I bent toward hor low enough to
look Into her golden tawny eyes and
run on:
"What have you dono to yourself?
You aro so beautiful, so strangely, so
rarely beautiful, it makes me desperate
that I did not keep my heart for you,
or, rather, lt would make me desperate
If hearts wero things that could bo given or kept at will,"
Certainly tlio wood nymph stared;
the golden tawny eyes looked nt mo
unwinking, Myrlillu's head had turned n little moro. Her lips were tho
least bit parted, as though her breath
cunie hard. I straightened nnd stuck
n hand In my pocket as I ndded:
"Tho pity of It! There's a truo heart
gono to waste! True hearts aro none
so plenty, Amaryllis."
"Certainly they nro not," came .scornfully from tho fireside. I affected not
to hear and went on manfully;
"I've played nnd lost-lost so miserably. Listen-then tell mo if you
think I quite deserve what I am getting?"
"I am going away," cntno faintly
from Myrtllia's chair, but Myrtilla herself sat still and even made u pretense
nf putting stitches Into her work.  Find
ing me silent through n loug minute,
she sat very straight and added:
'•Naturally one ls nervous at finding
oneself alone with a lunatic. Only
lunatics talk to things as though tbey
were people."
"Don't mind hor, Amaryllis,'*.1 said
softly. "Boor creature, she ls jealous.
She thinks you nre no more thuu n Illy
blooming in a pot. We know better, of
"Really I did not dreum you had so
much Imagination," Myrtilla said outright, snipping her thread as she spoke.
1 stared harder tban ever at Amaryllis, saying: "Imagination is n fearful
thing sometimes. I nm glad, Amaryllis, you altogether lack lt. You would
never sot- lu ordinary civilities to a
pretty girl anything to turn your love-
'ly golden tawny eyes green."
"Dancing or sitting out every other
number, I suppose, comes under the
head of 'ordinary civilities,"' Myrtilla
said, hor lip curling.
I kept on quietly: "And even if you
felt hurt you would let me explain.
The Verinews have hearts ns big ns
their fortune. Thus it happens I owe
thorn what money can never pay. Not
so many years bnck thoro was n big
Hurry in thc street thnt put my governor In the worst sort of hole. It needed
n cool million to get Dim out, nnd a
Verlnew million did lt. Yet tho governor was hardly an acquaintance.
Verlnew learned his extremity by
chance and came to his help because,
as ho phrased lt, he didn't think tho
other side was putting up a square
deal, lt docs not lesson the obligation that he got his million back, plus
a good profit. Eventually the Grant-
ley girl will have lt, with several millions more, Bhe is n granddaughter—
unacknowledged because Mme. Verlnew wishes to seem ns young ns their
fortune-but the very apple of the Veri-
new eye. They wanted her to bo the
hello of die ball -she was shy nnd sensitive nnd frightened half out of her
Wits,   Somehow sho trusted me"—
"1 dou't nt nil wonder at that," said
a voice from tho fireplace,
I bowed gravely and resumed: "When
she i.s not frightened sho Is pretty, Amaryllis. Her head is spbndidly rod—
not quite so red as yours. She is light
on her feet, too, and loves to dance as
well as the flowers do. Tho trouble ls
she has not yet quite caught the
rhythms she must move to, so needs
must lean heavily upon her partner. I
understood; some of the others did not.
Occasionally one was Hurried, still
more occasionally one Impertinent And
a siiiKli.- cud let her seo be was ashamed
of (lancing with her In spite of the mil*
lions. At her lirst ball! Think of lt!
I had lo lake away the Sting of it somehow. Perhaps I did seem devoted, but
Bbe didn't misunderstand. I told her
about Myrtilla in our very first w tits."
A little inarticulate cry from ibe fireplace here. Covertly I saw tears on
.Myrtilla'S checks. She made as I' ugh
to rise, but sank back, turned away her
head and resumed the furious stabbing
wilh her needle. I gathered the green-
cry cf Amaryllis in my bands laid my
cheek against It und said dreamily:
"Amaryllis, tell mo why I nm fated
to love dusky balr. All the painters
and poets agree that red is over so
much more beautiful."
"Are you sure, quite sure, you do love
It?" Myrtilla nske.i tremulously. Sho
was not answered In words.
Five minutes later Dicky, bursting In
upon us, found US side by side, looking
down nt Amaryllis through sunshine
grown suddenly and magically warm
and golden. After u long look Dicky
Whistled, turned on his heel and said
from the door over his shoulder: "So
you two havo made it up. McSnlfters
said you would, 'cause thnt red lily
bloomed so far ahead of time. But I
don't care about thai. All I want is to
know what you're goin' to give me

I wus incurable.
"I, ut times, had such severe pains

in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods bet ore the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man -must
advertise. All live
men seek the aid of
tiie printer
tonll persistent mui lili-
i-i'ul advertisers: it is read
