laugh he shifted the knife to his left
hand nnd slowly, steadily pressed the
blade dowu upon the other. This Spar-
inn act was accompanied by much
wrinkling of the forehead and a few
hard words softly uttered. When Rob*

Ivlng on the floor and Klmendorf was
striding toward a howl ln the corner.

| HEN the sun had been
up three hours. It was
able to look over u
low portion of St
Winifred's building
uml see the wlnd/iw
of the room where Elsie lay asleep, The
sudden Increase of light awoke her,
snd she found thut Brensj-n was holding both her bands.
"I was afraid you would move too
much aud hurt yourself," said she. "I
knew you must wake soon. How do
you feel?"
Elsie winked ber eyes end twisted
the left corner of her mouth with the
air of ono who Ib testing a bruise to
see how sore It Is.
"Tbere was a girl who felt better
once a long time ngo," she said, "but
It doesn't matter. Haven't you been to
bed all tbls night'/"
"I bave slept on the couch," replied
Brenda. "My maid brought down this
loose gown, and I've been very comfortable. I bave bad some tblngs brought
from your house too."
"Did you get my little silver mirror?"
asked Elsie, wltb eagerness. "Oh, how
good of youl   Please let me have lt"
Brenda gave ber tbe mirror, and she
gazed long and Intently Into It; then
sbe sighed and laid down the glass.
"All gone," she said. "Well, tbot
doesn't matter either. Nothing matters
any more. But I used to think I would
be pretty wben 1 was dead."
"So you wlil, my dear," answered
Brenda. "lou'Il have a sweeter, prettier face tban you bave now—the dearest old grandmother's face, with beautiful white curls all around—and the
children wbo come to kiss you will cry
like a little shower on a May morning,
but tbey will be better children afterward, for tbey will want to live the
life tbat brings such happy Bleep at the
end of lt"
"I wish I could say things like that,"
said Elsie. "Even If tbey aren't true
tbey make people feel good. 1—look-
fierce!   Don't 1, honestly?"
"Fierce!" echoed Brenda. "Why,
anything else In tbe world, I should
"That's slang," said Elsie. "It merely means terrible."
"Well, I'd hardly agree to that word
either," said Brenda. "You don't Inspire any terror In me. You're only a
little bit pale, and perhaps you bave
cried too much."
"You must thluk I am a perfect baby.
Really It Isn't so. I have borne some >
things In tbls life fairly well. I would
bear much more and be ns happy as
any girl If I only knew how. But
there's no way. My life Is In a tanglo
tbat s.'uiinot be unwound. I Just simply can't go on, Brenda. That's what 1
felt wben I opened my eyes In this
room the first time and while 1 lay
thinking before I would let Dr. Kendall know I was conscious. There Is
no way. absolutely no way"—
Her voli'c begun to tremble, but she
resolutely checked the tendency.
"How everything settles down on
you In the morning!" she said. "You
wake so happy. Perhaps you have
dreamed of the pleasanlest things. I
almost always dream of people I like
■nd of being witb tbem In tbe fields or
abroad somewhere In a strange city
and all dressed up In tho most wonderful clothes, and then the reality begins to come down, like-like a great
ball of rugs. 1 saw them loading a
barge with rags once—she was alongside a steamer—and 1 alwnys remembered how those dirty, heavy, stifling
bales came down. They were like life."
"Your life hasn't been altogether a
bale of rags, my young friend," said
Rrcnda, "and unless I'm much mistaken It will be In the future quite
like somo of those dreams. There was
a young man who made a promise or
two about strange titles and beautiful
clothes, you know," she added, reddening a little. "1 saw Mr. Alden's note
to you, and I was tricked Into rending
a port of It" I
"I suppose It will be printed In the ,
papers," said Elsie, "with your picture
and mine and Mr. Alden's.   Isn't this
nwful?   It   Is   so  absolutely   horrible '
that there's no use being polite about I
It.   But really I never meant to do you |

I for  him.   I   actually   did   make   him
I think so."
"I know It," replied Brenda gently.
"IIo told me so."
"It was only on that lost evening
that I let hlm guess the truth," snld
Elsie, "and how I did that, heaven mny
know. Suddenly ho seemed to see It.
and theu, honestly. I had uo opportunity to deny It. I didn't speak a
word lu two hours. Mr. Alden talked
for both of us, making my arguments
I'or me and then answering them
without the faintest perception thut
they weren't reully mine at all. In
fact, he was like a big boy, so curried
away with his own Idea that all the
world seemed to be rushing along In
the wuy he wished. It was only when
be talked about sending me a lot of
money to buy wedding clothes that I
mnnnged to make myself heard, and
even then be thought that my objection was altogether to the money and
not to the wedding. Remenilis'r that I
was not much calmer than be, und you

this? And you don't seem to care In
Ihe least. Are we all crazy together?"
"Some of us have been so perhaps."
said Brenda, "but this morning I think
we are all particularly sane."
"It was wrong, of course, to let him
come to see me," Elsie continued. "But
It must end soon, and It wus so Utile,
anil you would have so much. You
know In those days I hated you. envied
vou. lay awake at uigbt to think bitter
thoughts about you, with your beauty
and position anil luxury!    Oh,  1 saw
you!    1 walked up anil down in front
of ynurjiousc for an hour one day until
fellow In the company came along and
asked hlm If he wns enjoying the
moon. And my Idol said: 'To—some-
wliere—with the moon. I was waiting
for you to buy ine a drink.' It wasn't
very bad, but It was coarse, aud 1
didn't love hlm any more after that,
and as be had never taken tbe slightest
notice of me the romance was not serious except that 1 caught nn awful cold
leaning out of that window. Now, why
did I tell you that story, Brenda?"
"Becnuse It ls amusing, I suppose,"
said Brenda. surprised by tho question.
"Because at thnt time I was not <iuito
17 yenrs old," said Elsie, "and I was
traveling around the country alone.
My mother was not strong enough to
go with me, and we both needed money
very badly."
While Brenda was striving to grasp
the full mennlng of this, being well
assured that Elsie spoke with a definite
purpose, there came a rap nt thc door,
announcing the morning visit of Dr.

run nway with you, and just as tbe
tbougbt flashed Into my mind one of
them began to prance, and I actually
prayed out loud, because I was so
afraid he reully would run, after I had
wlshi'd It."
The rhetorical value of this speech
was somewhat marred by the circumstance that Elsie's face was being
washed while It was delivered. Having rendered this service. Brenda begun to nrrnnge her patient's hair.
"I felt so small nnd shabby outside
your house." said Elsie. "You can't
have any Idea of It. Fancy that mansion full of servants, all yours, and
there was 1 who was In need of shoes.
I slon't mean to say tbey were full of
holes or nnythlng like that, but they
didn't look very nice, and I couldu't
afford to buy n new pair, for I was saving every penny. My mother and I

never existed. Aud now let me soy
this: There Is no rivalry between us.
There ori' mutches so manifestly made
in heaven thot even a woman's Jeal

So dou't think of 'sparing my feellugs,'
os my New England aunt expresses
It. or 'beiug polite,' to use your own
phrase for the same Idea. You and
Mr. Alden were made for each otber.
If I had been writing a book or a play,
I might have tried to create two people
so perfectly reciprocal. Tho way Is
mode smooth for me to be a friend to
both of you."
Elsie turned her head suddenly and
kissed Brenda's hand. Then sbe relapsed Into thought which culminated
In her saying:
"You couldn't have loved him. I
ought not to say that, of course, but
It's true. Divine sanction hasn't anything to do with Jealousy. Tbey don't
come from tbe samo locality. I have
always lieen jealous whenever I have
been In love."
She looked up out of tbe corner of
her eye to cotch the effect of tbo shock.
"Whenever you have been In love!"
cried Brenda. "I hope lt hasn't happened often."
"Well, uot so very often," replied
Elsie. "I remember bclug In love with
an actor onco for as much as two
weeks. You spoke about putting Mr.
Alden and me iuto a piny. Well, this
mnn resembled Mr. Alden, and wo

Kendall.    Brenda wns sufficiently and
very  becomingly  attired, and  not so
much as a single shining thread of her
hair showed the smallest disarray, yet j I'lmaf.
she could not help feeling u sense of
disadvantage. Having leaned upon the
conventlounlitles quite steadily ull her
life, she had come to need theni, nnd
Dr. Kendull wns to ber n young man
whom sho had met iu society rather i
than n physician. She was surprised |
aud a little ashamed to find that this
was true. I
As  for  Kendnll,  he was all  doctor |
thnt morning.    He had been detained
from Elsie longer than he would have ;
Wished, and that strange tblng which '
Is a doctors conscience was driving
him hard.   He wasted no time In words
until he had satisfied himself about his
patient   In the course of his Investlgn
tion he discovered that Elsie still calm
ly believed that she would die ef ber
wound, and this was the sole unfavorable symptom.    It was the more  re
markable because she had not nt that
Ome any sensations which n rnti
mind could attribute to the approach
of dissolution.    Tbere was   pain,   of
course, but It was not of the kind that
depresses and frightens the sufferer.
The doctor spoke to her In the most
encouraging words that be could command, but they seemed not to produce
■n adequate effect. Elsie said little
npon the subject of death, but it was
clear that her mind was fixed upon It.
"I must hurry away," said the doe-
tor. "Mr. Alden Is waiting In my room
In a state of anxiety that 1 need nut describe. I shall not only relieve that
completely, but I shall tell him that he
may see you this afternoon, five minutes precisely, and Miss Maclane will
bold the watch."
"Tell blm, please," said Elsie, "that
I thank blm very much for the violets;
also that I received his message and
that he must not think of lt any mure.
Yeu will remember? He must put It
out of bis mind."
Kendall glanced somewhat uneasily
at Brenda as be repeated this singular
"I received from Mrs. Simmons," sold
be, "a telegrom sent to her from your
mother—thut Is, from one of tbe family,
I haven't lt here; must have left It In
my room"—and he pretended to search
his pockets. "It said that your mother
was not quite well enough to start at
once, and, ln view of the encouraging
telegrams sent last night, your relatives wouldn't let her como unless she
was quite able to mnke the Journey.
Mrs. Simmons' message, sent Immediately after you were hurt, wns spilte
alarming, I'm afraid; but we have corrected all tbat."
"My mother Is prostrated," said
Elsie, her eyes filling with tears, "und
I shall never see ber again."
"I assure you that you will," replied
Kendall earnestly, "and, by the wny,
here's a letter from her. It enme this
morning, I was told. There was no
otber mail fer you."
"It's strange what bas become of Mr.
Alden's letter," said Elsie, "the one be
mentioned ln that note."
"Do you mean that you didn't receive
it?" exclaimed Breads.
Elsie shook ber bead.
"It didn't come." she said.
Kendall did not understand the significance of tbls, as he bod no accurate
knowledge of the contents of the note.
He arose and moved toward the door,
Brenda accompanying him.
"If you should chance to meet Mr.
Elmendorf  this   morning."   said   she,
"perhaps It would be better not to mention what you bave Just heard."
"About the letter?"
In a sketch of the adventurous career of Morley Roberta, the well-
known author, Al.A.P. says:
Although as a hoy he hud woven
thi ill ing romances and written j
poetry as a young man, he had no

The late Augustus W, Hare, the
English writer, usiil to *l«- 11 a story
of Dean Stanley, who was a cousin
of his. Stanley was proverbially
ahsentrnlndcd, On one occasion he
wa- driving in Sicily with a friend.
It. was .bitterly cs>ld. Stanley hud
bis traveling bag with him and de-
s ided to put on an extra wrap, ltoars
of laughter from the Streot urchins
awoke Stanley at ln;*t tai the fact
that he had put on a nightshirt over
his coat. Mr. Hare was fond, too,
of repeating a story of tlie Khedive
Ismail of Egypt. Nassau Senior was
to be received by his highness, who
had been warned that Senior kept a
diary. "Oh, yes, 1 quite understand," said Ismail. "*M. Senior ls

was this' "A lie is an abomination

Is rUgoated hy tbe peptic Quid. The
Btomach is able to digest proteld foaid
when Introduced into it, yet it does not
digest Itself.
The reason for this hns been shown
by Welnhitid. Welnlund round thut a
substance cun be i xtracted from the
colls of the stomach wblcb, wben added to proti'id material, will not allow
It to be acted upon by the pepsin of the
Stomach. This substance belongs to
the class of so called nntiferments—
thnt Is, a group of bodies which by
their presence inhibit fermentative actions. The presence of this nntifer-
ment In the cells of the stomach prevents them from digesting is.    "*' ;. .■>.
After death, when this substance decomposes, the stomach will digest itself.
Tm imofclmr,
It has been recorded on Rood authority that one of the early us.'s made of
dried ten leaves was to smoke them
after thc manner of tobacco.
On the first Introduction of tea Into
Europe, In the seventeenth century,
pipes, especially in France, were frequently tilled with ten, nt leust among
the wealthier Classes of society, to
whom on nccount of its hlch price lt
was ulnne ni'cessihlp, anal the fumes of
the leaf were thus enjoyed, like tobacco, without prejudice to the use ordinarily made of ii as a beverage,
Blegny, u French physician of the
Mine, In a work published In 108" and
quoted in l.e Grand d'Aussy's "His-
tolro de la Vie 1'iivee. lies Francois,"
lias n reference to this practice of
smoking tea, wblcb was then, as ho
affirms, a frequent and popular fashion.

Well   Ureaavd   Woman   Who    Wear
CatsMasla Sent on Approvnl,
When tbe ways of some women arc
considered, It is less remarkable that
such numbers of women dwelling in
the large cities dress extravagantly
than before their methods of securing
rich costumes for all occasions have
been scrutinized.
There are women, and many of them
very wealthy, who make a regular
practice of haviug elegant garments
seut to their homes on approval, wearing them ouee and then returning them
to stores or costumers. Some women
will wear a dress or a cloak to the
opera and scud It hack next morning.
Or tliey will get a hat or wrap and go
driving or visiting in lt. The average
person would he ustoulshed to know all
the things, from handsome umbrellas
and fans of great beauty to Jewelry
and clothes, that some -.Vonieu borrow from the shops.
Of course all of these women are not
well off, but they all divsn well and
go out a great deal, and although the
shopkeepers often discover the manner
lu whieh they are being deceived, they
do not always like to make a fuss fm
feur of losing a good customer. Besides
they know that If they Incur tbe eiiini
ty of sueh impostors the women uiv
quite capable of abusing their goods
nnd robbing them of other and more
honest customers. Strange us It may
seem, these women generally mingle In
pretty good society, or the fringes of 11.
and have some influence iu the matter
of dress, slnce'they have won the reputation of always dressing elegantly and
ln the newest things.
This sort of imposition had been carded on so often hy a customer of it certain large firm that its members determined to put a stop to her flaunting
about ln borrowed plumage, at least
when the plumage belonged to them.
One 8uturday this woman had a splendid wrap sent home on approval, and
on Sunduy one of the head clerks of
the Arm who knew Mrs. Blank us the
offender stationed himself near her
pew in the fashionable church which
she attended. When 6he sailed down
the aisle after service, resplendent iu
the borrowed cloak, this man stepped
up to her and said:
"How do you do, Mrs. Blank? I nm
delighted to see that you like our cloak
w-cll enough to kssep it."
Of course nfter that she could not return the cloak.
Still, with till ihe efforts put forward
hy shops and costuina-B to break up
the pernicious habit of forcible borrowing on the part of sundry feminine customers, the practice goes merrily on,
r.nd many a fair dame with an enviable reputation for exquisite dressing
appears but once in garments and hats
thnt wben next seeu are bedeck in r another woman or hanging In t! r*
room of Borne smart shop.

My troubles arose from poor and
