"But he could be terribly  stern."  .For a   moment   there    was silence.  And   then Ronald  asked abruptly : '  "What  is your  father,  Nellie ?  You  ,    have  never   told mo  his   profession."  Nellie  Arkwright hesitated.  "Dear Ronald,"   she  said at    last,  "I   know you  will .think   it  strange,  but dad has forbidden me to mention  the nature of his profession to    anyone.    It   is  an    honest   ono���that    I  may at- least tell you���but there are  reasons   why    he   should,   as far     as-j  , possible,   hide  his  identity  with     tlie  profession  ho has. chosen.

The publicity  of a park seat admitted of no better  demonstration of his feelings. Presently , they rose and moved slowly  out of the park and in the direction  'of Nellie's home. Nearing it, Ronald's face became imbued with a sudden  resolve.  "Nellie," he said, I shall have to  speak to yoj.ii- father ere long.

She stood as if transfixed, gazing into the face of the man  she loved. Then, with a quick  moVemcnt, she went _ towards him  and   laid  her  hand  on  his  shoulder.  "Ronald," she said shakily, "tell  me it's not true���oli, toll me it's not  true!" i  Ronald never stirred.  "I  cannot,"  he  said  huskily.      "It  is   true.    Your   father   was   tho     man  who  arrested  mc  seven years  ago."  "But���but you were innocent?"  murmured  the  girl 'brokenly.  "As yourself," was the reply.  "But the plea of innocence,' in the  face of conviction, is ono that has  no weight with the hard official  mind 'of, a detective. Such, men are  rich in'brains, but poor enough in  Heart."  Tic spoke bitterly, and Nellie put  ii'or small white hand over his  mouth.  "Hush!" sho whispered. "You misjudge him. I believe you dear Ronald, and, when my father knows you  better, ho will  do tho same."  .She would have said more, but  her  father  interrupted  her.  Nellie," he said peremptorily, "go  to your roam! ,1 will deal with' this  ���gentleman!"  'There was mocking taunt in tho  last word that escaped neither Ronald nor his daughter. For a moment Nellie stood still. Thon; she lift-  led her'skirt with one white hand,,  and, with head erect'and blazing  eyes, turned to goy Ronald sprang  to open the door, and she greeted  him-with a .radiant smile.  "Always, always!" she whispered,  and swept out' of the room.  Ronald 'closed tho door after her  and walked back to the centre of tho  room.  "Now, then," said Richard Arkwright bluntly, "let-us make an end  of this business." You have asked>mo  for my daughter. J. would rather  see her dead than as tho wife ot a  convicted felon. Do you understand  ino?"  Ronald bowed. The hot blood was  surging -to his temples, but he kept  himself  under  control.  "Quito!" ho said coolly. "But I  shall not relinquish my pursuit of this  object, Mr. Arkwright. Your daughter is of age and can act for herself,  and,', if she stands by you for' a  while, 1 can wait. And I will wait  ���five, ton; fifteen, twenty years, if  necessary���but I shall not abandon  .    Ithe hope of my life  all his efforts seemed wholly futile.'  He was slowly but steahily mounting' the golden 'ladder of Fame, and  with his increasing popularity came  an increasing danger of his identity  being ,discovercd with that ' other  Ronald I-Taldane who stood, a convicted felon, in the dock of a great  court and heard the dread sentence  of two years' penal servitude passed  upon him.,.

The  info   Nellie's  eyes  as  she  heard    her jmau's guilty, right enough, and Ncl-  Kc had.begun life in a large commercial house as a junior clerk. His  progress had been rapid, and he had  been promoted above the heads of  several  ol  his seniors.  Such promotion too gives rise to  the bitteiost envy, and young Haldane found his own case'^no exception to the rule. He was shunned  and ostracised by his fellow clerks,  studiously left out of their conversations and discussions, , and made to  feel that he was not 'one' of them.  But ho paid no heed to the matter,  though he felt the slight keenly,  deeming, it best to live it down  with thc quiet demeanour of self-  respecting manhood.  All too late he learnt to what  depth's the human heart will, sink to  grasp the empty bubble wc call revenge. ,  It was Ronald's duty to keep tho  cheque-book of tlio firm under lock  and key. Ono day���a day he would  never forgot���he was summoned into  tho private oflico of his employers  to find them closeted with a man ho  did not then know, but whom he  know now   as   Detective   Arkwright.  To'his utter amazement, a cheque  was held before his eyes and he was  asked if he could account for it. Tt  was filled in ,'in his own handwriting,  tho signature wus a forgery; and the  cheque had* been torn, from the book  in his charge.  His own handwriting! Yes, it  was his, and yet not his, for he had  filled in no such cheque.  He could only look from one to thc  other in helpless ama/cment. The  power of speech seemed momentarily  lo have forsaken him. And thon his  books wero placed ' beforo him, and,  to his astonishment, lie found falsifications of which ho had been wholly-  unconscious   the   day   before.  Ho had left tlie office earlier than  some of the rest tho previous evening, but this thought never even occurred to him. He was too bewildered to think, and marched like a  man in a dream to the district police  station, where he was formally  charged. , And thon had come his  first hearing, his f remand and lastly  his final  trial.  Even he, innocent though he know mtirely.'  himself to bo, was staggered by tho  mass of evidence brought against  him, and' the sentence had struck  him like a blow, to send him reeling  down the stops that -led from . the  dock  to  the vault below.  How he .had live'd through those  two years he did not know. When he  once more returned to tho great  world-outside hejbund his commercial career closed to him for ever. * "  Then ho had sat down one day to  write a story, based on his own' experiences, a no thc editor to whom  he submitted it wrote to him for  more.   That was how it had begun.  Genius, dormant so long, was as-  setting itself now, and Ronald Haldane was a rising man in his profession. But that heavy, dark cloud  still hung over his head, and he  longed to sweep it away for eve-.  So he waited, and hoped, and worked to bring it about. But he never  did.  Fate, or perchance a higher power  than Fate, had destined that this  task should fall into thc hands of  another, and that other the man he  least expected.  Etood silent for some time. Then  Ronald, wHo had been closely studying the, face of the} old detective,  asked suddenly :    '  "Mr. Arkwright, surely you have  not discovered anything bearing on  my case?"   -  "Did,   you    know    anyone    by the  name of George Thorold?" he asked.  Ronald  started.   '  "Yes,"     ho said eagerly.    "He> was  a fellow clerk of    mine.      He    never  liked    mo,     and,  truth to tell,  I returned tho compliment." '  -"Just     so,"    snid    the    detective.  "Well,  for tho past     threo  weeks    I  have been hunting'down, a man who  has committed    some    of thc    most  clever and   'daring    forgeries of    the  century.      Two   days  ago   I  captured  him,  and  his name is' George    Thorold."  .  He paused and looked kindly at tho  young man  before him.

Ho was an author,  writing always under a noin de  plume, and hi.s literary genius was  rapidly bringing hiin to th'e front.

A bell, when sounding,  cai;ses the formation, of pulsus, or  waves, in tho air, which, though in-  \ isiblc to the eye, lune yet been photographed. These waves are not at  all small, those produced by a shrill  bell being about a foot in length.  Thoy aro quite easy to measure, and  a -very groat deal is Known a'.-out  thein. Those who have noticed the  drop in pitch of a loroinotuc whistle  when an express train flies through  a station will ha*\e a clear idea as  to  the actual change in tho note.  Waves - produced by whistles or  bells, or any musical instrument,  rush -tlirough tlie air at a rate of  about* 700 miles per Hour, and, in  spite of this great speed, fall gently  on tlie car. The pitch of the note  Heard is described by the number of  waves which reach the ear per "second.  Some curious results miglit arise  from this kind of pKonomonon.

Some astronomers thought  this'possible, she had,heard at the  Inglebys'that, afternoon.  "Thou dost preserve the stars from  wrong," she thought. She no longer  wore Philip's opal ring, she had  written to offer him his release, telling him that his love was a broth-,  er's, that she could not in conscience  hold him to his forced hasty promise  and that their marriage would be  agniijst tho spirit of their father's  dying request. ,Shc wrote thjs after tho meeting in the, picture' -gallery, since when she had - not seen  Claude Medway.

Even without her warning  that afternoon in the North Gallery  how should ho stoop to such as she?  JTo had conquered his feelings, she  honored him for doing so.  In these days Jessie 110 longer  wished to lcavo Redwoods, she had  no motive at heart for anything.  liar books interested her no more,  her biushes weio put aside, her needle idle; sho spoke little and ate less,  morning, noon, and night were the  same to her, the mainspring of hor  life *was broken.  beyond, watching and thinking m a  deep agitation, in which regret, awe',  and exultation were mingled.       *    ,  "Heaven forgive'me," he murmured. vWhy do people ask forgiveness  for what thoy fully intend to do?

Was it  Jessie's heart, her innocent; happy  heart? >  She was glad to be alone in her  fiesh, white-diaped chamber, alone  with her unutterable happiness. Yet  she felt -very 'desolate' in .her .--, vain  longing for, some one to share' this  great joy. ,- She opehe'd the case containing Philip's simpering daguerreotype, - glad that it resembled him  ever so little.'' Only to toll Philip,  whoso sympathy rounded off and  completed every pleasure! But he  was so far away. She looked earnestly on tho .picture, - thinking, thinking of Philip; why should she not  by some supreme effort of will bring  herself before.his mind? She had  heard of such things.  vibrates  light,  may  "Star  to   star  soul to soul  Strike through a finer element of her  own."  those  "Wo ich ihn nicht hab,  Ist mir das Grab���"  Even Roger's blunt perceptions were  sharpened by her spiritless aspect,  and tho honest follow went so fur  as to beg her to confide her troubles  to him, but in vain. Yot she tried  to.'shape herself for her fate, and at  th'e sight of this unusual splendor in  the sky made an effort to.rouse herself from her brooding apathy. She  fixed her thoughts' on th'e iierfcct  order and harmonious mo.vemon^ts of  those innumerable flocks of' stars,  and on the immutable laws fplfowed  even by that splendid wanderer glowing-in tho sky before hor, hoping  thus to strengthen hor mind and up-  she  thought,   though     not  in  then unwritten words.-  As she feazed* and gazed with strong  yearning by her dim and solitary  light, alono in h'er hushed white  white room, something thrilled her  every fibre; she- trembled; th'e portrait seemed to take c life and-meaning. The eyes flashed-responsive to  her-'own. She knew that ho heard  hor, and pressed"thc picture to her  face, frightened at her own daring  in another moment she must have  heard his voice, had hor courage held  out.  She turned to the open lattice to  sock companionship and reasstiiMiicc  in the stars. All without was hushed and calm, trees made a dark  mass which concealed thc comot, the  air was rich with tho almond scent  ol clematis from the porch below,  and balmy with myrtle bloom, late  flowering roses, stocks, and mignonette. Thero was no sound but the  flutter of a solitary bird, and when  th'e noise of wheels issued from thc  far distance growing louder and  dying away into stillness again, she  was glad. A bat-flitted by tho window, and a gray moth fluttered  gh'ost-liko in, and nearly put out her  candle in its dying struggles.  "Poor moth, poor foolisg thing!"  she sighed. She turned and let her  gown rustle to the floor, where thc  sound of a hard thing falling made  her look in her pocket.  What magic,and mystery was here?  Had ��� fairies been at work?. She drew  forth a small morocco-covered box,  in the dim light, and trying with unaccustomed fingers to open it, made  tho spring fly open thc wrong way,  and'let-fall from .the purple velvet  lining, with a faint fairy-like clink,  nnd an unearthly lustre, a string of  pearls. She stood entranced of admiration and wonder, when she saw  the soft,  milky lustre of the   Jewels  knew, whence these enchantments had  come. It was the first love gift, for  there in the lid was a paper inscribed in a hand she knew, "For my  darling, C 'M." He had slipped it  into her pocket in the daik, and she  had been too much occupied with  the giver to remember"'the gift.  She closed the case with a quick  snap; the candle,' already flickering  in its socket, flared suddenly up and  then wont out, and she sat down by  the open lattice, pale and quivering  in thc giay shadows. *  Unsophisticated as she was, some  deep instinct warned her that he had  no right to give her anything so  costly; she was glad the necklace  was hidden out of sight in its velvet  bed; at the first opportunity she  would  return  it.  She undressed in the dark, knelt  awhile in the'dark, and, then- laid"  hei self to rest, dreaming of Claude,  who was always twining strings of  pearls, which kept changing to strangling snakes, round her neck, until  she vvas'glad of the-dawn, with '.its  welcome singing of birds. '  That nigh't ��� Philip was sitting  alono, reading intently, when he was  startled by a soft voice saying  "Philip," in a low, distinct, yet far-  off tone". -He looked quickly up, and  there at the other end of the large  ba.ro Indian room, her drapery unstirred by thc ,punkah wind, was  Jessie, all in white, with outstretched arms, and overshadowing her���  something���that froze his blood and  made his heart ykn'ock loudly against  his ribs.

RENT  RADIUM BY  HOUR.  When ono reads of the considerable  use that is being made medicinally of  radium it seems hardly credible that  so much can have boon made of so  little. Thc amount procurable in  London to-day is considerably loss  than a grain. Consequently, as only  a limited number of medical men can  have an opportunity of utilizing this  weird chemical, it.is suggested that  chemists should follow thc example  of one of their number, who has obtained a small tube containing five  milligrammes ot radium bromide, and  hires it out at $2.50 an hour. This  is surely the strangest development  of modern pharmacy.  A Scot who served on Englishman  last summer as guide and friend on a  fishing trip had a weakness for claiming relationship with all th* influential families in that'part of Scotland.  One'day the Englishman met hijn on  the road driving a pig, and saw a  little fun. "Well, Donald," said, he,  "is that one of your grand relations?" "Oh, no," said Donald,  quietly. "This is -just an acquaintance���lllse j-erscl'."  No one should ever strike a, horse  on.tho top or side of thc head, because th'e eyes may-bo injured.  HOG   NOTES.  The hog is generally as clean as ho  is permitted to be.  Wasteful  feeding mny  mean   cither  too much or too little.  Let the so\vs have a free range until a few days  before farrowing.  When thc sows farrow small litters  one sow may raise both.  Regulate the breeding to thc seasons best suited to tlio" young pigs.  Tho pig is always th'e best place  to dispose of imperfect, small fruit  and potatoes.  Often failing is unavoided by having a sow run ---down in flesh when  bred.  If thc sows show indication of giving but little milk, feed them little  or no  corn.  One advantage with the hog is that  h'e will eat almost anything and for  this reason alono is adapted to any  farm.  Teach the little pigs to eat as  soon as possible and feed them all  the skim milk they will consume.  Hogs which have a strong learning towards fat accumulation il kept  for breeding should have as free a  range as possible.  'The hog is raised only for its meat'  and this being, the case the object is  best. subserved by. turning into meat  as soon as possible.  A bushel of corn will make mon  pounds of increase when, fed to pigs  three months old than when fed to  an older one.  With pigs as with' other stock tno  food and management has very much  to do  with its Iiealthfulueca.  ���* \     * V  1 - V  *'  ���.>- "-  .v^ U**nm**\,   ,   Is,*^  r-^nn>  +��****. ^/.t Mf^itm-Hpr-j t^^j^ft ���&i.*i��**,rwi+��cr..*-.?,* * -1 ���Z.t^X.*^' ���?��*��<�� h-aV��-<��1* (&JiK.iSx.tXi Mj^���'JijiW-i.BvC*'* ���u->nyi4rt_^qpu*n*>i,kU Rrtw^Ukw  u A.f�� >UV ��>4 ����1��A*V3*4HI*  w��jiimw l.nBf ��� �����  _  .     -    ,      r/  V  \ -       "  1 >*:"    .

This was the case with Mr.  Charles Hawloy, an Englishman,  who died in 1901��� , and* whoso will  may be seen in'Somerset House. Mr.  Hawlcy was a wealthy dealer in malt  and when a young man of twenty-  live had fallen desperately in love  with a young lady from Liverpool,  who happened to be" visiting" some  mutual friends.  Miss Adams,at the time was,    unfortunately,     alrea'dy    engaged,     but  Hawley, who    appears    to have held  tho old-belief-that "All's' fair in love  and war," begged her    to break   oil  the     engagement     and  marry     him.  Miss'Adams naturally declined .to do  this, first    because       it  would   have  been dishonorable, second because she  loved  her fiance,   an'd  third     because  sh'c did not care in any  way for'the  impetuous Hawlcy. _    She returned to"  Liverpool     al'tefl receiving an  impassioned letter from hep would-be lover  and, so curiously do tilings turn out,  n   few  months  later  her  fiance     was  killed  BANISH THE WRINKLES.

There  Is no dispute oyer the' will, and the  lucky man, who is hot yet thirty-  five years of age, has already "come  into  possession  of. his fortune!  T*  i�� ��nt.  ��c ���r��. an  uncommon  that even in -loath he should think  of her. Miss Adams, who was thon  happily married, declined to use the  fortune for her, own beno/it, but 'devoted it to tho support, of some  philanthropical institutions in which  sho was interested.  On 'the out skirts  of a.  small   town  in   Somersetshire    there  is a    house  which -in former days attracted  considerable  attention   by  rcasan  of the  fact that night and  day,  winter nn'd  summer, --the .shutters   were   closely  barred." No ray of sunlight was ever  permitted to   enter    the rooms,    for  the   occupant  was  a  disciple  of   the  fictional. Miss   Havish'am   and     had  adopted      this    curious    manner     of  showing h'er sorrow for a lost* lover.'  ^ Her story."was well known, and the  writer himself ^heard it from a   resident >who ,was well" acquainted    with  the'lady in her youth.r    More   than  thirty years  ago  she  had   been     engaged to a. doctor,  the marriage-day,  was settled,  and even the guests 'invited,, when  the bride received  some  news   respecting     her , lover    which  prompted her to write and break off  the  engagement,   at   the same     time  absolutely refusing to see him or receive    any    explanations.      Then she  retired to a house    which' she owned  in a lonely part 'of  Somerset, *where  she lived foi   twenty-five years   with  one   devoted   'maidservant.      To    all  outward  appearances the house   was  untenanted,   but  people  passing knew  that'ivithin there was a'misanthropic'  woman wasting    her days in useless  regrets and fast  approaching a solitary and unloved old age.  FIVE YEARS  AGO   SHE DIED     .  and while she lay lifeless on the -bedc  the  shutters  were thrown   open; and  tho  sunlight streamed in* and    shone  upon    the    white    face .for th'e first  time   in  five-and-twenty  years.   After  the  funeral,  when the  will  came    to  bo read,   it  was found  to contain    a  clause  in  which  she iorgavc her    old  sweetheart and left him the bulk   of  her     property,    amounting  to     many-  thousands a year,  on condition'that'  lhe lived in the house where her lonely life  had  been  spent.   Tho  doctor,  I who had never married and was then  a man  of  about  fifty,   accepted    the  legacy and    its    conditions, and immediately afterwards took up his residence   m  the  house  where  so  many  precious   years    of     life    had     been  wasted.  Many a girl has been left a fortune  by the man to whom she was engaged, but who had unfortunately died  before the wedding-day. A curious  case of this kind was brought to  light recently through the burning  of the Iroquois Theatre in Chicago.  It appears that in Plainfields there  is now living a young lady, who a  year ago was -earning a modest income by leaching, embroidery and  needlework, but who is now in possession of some ��25,000 a year, and  a couple of estates.  This    lady,    Miss Alice , was in  1902 giving a lesson in intricate  embroidery in the house of a fashionable society woman, where she  met'a wealthy broker, who promptly  fell in love with her. In spile of  interferences from his friends and relations he made it his business to be~  como better acquainted with the  modest seamtrcss, and, finding that  she was as good as .she was pretty,  proposed and was accepted.  This gentleman held somewhat eccentric, but nevertheless excellent  ideas on the subject of engagements,  aiid declared that as soon as a. man  became engaged ho should regard the  care of "his fiancee and her future as  sacred and important as though she  were alrea'dy his wife. In proof of  his belief the very week which saw  their engagement also witnessed the  drawing up of h'is will, in which,  with' some trifling exceptions, he left  the  greater part  of his  property  to  aged 3 6 and 3 7 respectively,.-,  A    young-''barber     named   'James  White,     who* resided   at'16     Brown  street,  'Andorston.   was .found-by  his  wife hanging,by-the neck* on the' in-  sido of the room door, over which a*  rope has been fixed." lief was. dead.

F. Cody's recent experiments  'with his man-lifting kites and his su&-_  cess  in  crossing  tho  English  Channel  in a boat drawn by kites have called  attention to the' scientific use of these  minature   airships.     But  there  is   ono  department .. in i which lutes play -- an  important role, and that is as a successful ,rexplorer   of  the   upper   atmosphere.    _ To-day  thoy" are  extensively  used both    on tho continent and     in  America  for,, obtaining  meteorological  observations.       Numerous    kite-flying  stations ha^e  been  opened in France,  Germany     and     tho     United   States,  whoto  kites   arc  daily' flown  for     securing  meteorological and other data.  Some of thom aro    under tho ^control  of thc respective Governments,    whilo  others are puiely private institutions.  By far  the  largest  nnd most  interesting of  these  is   blue  Hill Observatory, a private station,  near Boston,  "*"iVIafl.saeliusctt&,   U.S.A.        Ilore     kites  may1 daily bo  seen  far  away on    tho  hon/on,    almost   out   of sight.

Jt consists of two light,, boxes,  iwlthout tops or bottoms, fastened  some little distance ono abovo>" tho  lother. Thc wind exercises its lifting  force chiefly upon the front and rear  sides of thc upper box, tho lower box,  ,which inclines.to the rear, arid so receives loss pressure, , preserving tho  balance, while tho ends" of tho boxes  being in line with the wind keep thc  kite steady. Experts" declare this  type to be the best flyer ever designed. t ,  .j. Curiously enough it was in Britain  'that kites wore lust flown tor a^scien-  titic object���namely, at Glasgow, in  ;3 749. F^our Kites were sent up, some  of them measuring seVen feet in  length. Thev were all attached to  one line, and their work was to lift  a'thermometer "into the air. It is  related that "tho uppermost one ascended to an amazing height, disap-  .pearing at times among thc white  summer clouds, while all thc rest in a  scries, formed with it ln-fhc air below, such*a toft-v scale, and that too  affected by such regular ar.d conspiring motions, as at once ,changcd a  boyish pastime into a spccbaclo^wluch  greatly interested every beholder."  CARRYING   INSTRUMENTS.  Tho kites al'Blue,Hill, and for that  Itnatter at all the up-to-date stations,  carry up a wonderful littlo instrument, called a meteorograph Virtually it is a combination of a barome-  -ter, a^ thermometer, end a hygrometer, alt of which record their readings  ���automatically on one cylinder, turned  by clockwork. < These little instruments are tho invention of M. Richard, of Tans, and are made of aluminium, and weigh three pounds By  flying two or more kites, a greater  lifting power is obtained, while there  is also less risk of the kites breaking  away and getting lost. Indeed, five,  hix. and even eight kites are often attached to thc same line when it is  desiied to lift a heavy instrument in  Ihe air, while there is a record of  twelve kites having been fixed to tho  same rope.  I An Interesting device is employed at  Blue Hill for bringing aown tho  kites In design it rosembles an ordinary, deep-sea sounding apparatus.  There is a drum round which tho wiro  Is wound by a small steam engine  ��� When the kites are drawn in, and ,an-  'Dthor drum  for playing out  tho'wire.  STEEL   WIRE   USED.  It has been found that tho pull of  tho kites during ascents is sufficient  to unreel the wire, which by moans  Df a pulley is dolivorycd to tho kites  ns required, an attached wheel mcarv  while recording the pull on tho lino  nnd the length paid out. Mention  may hero bo made of the wire used at  Blue Hill. it is a fine steel music-  wire, weighs but fifteen pounds to tho  mile, and is capable of withstanding  n pull of thiee hundred pounds. Tho  who is spliced iu lengths of moro  than a mile with the greatest care,  special pains being taken that no  sharp bi*ndM or rust qpots occur which  would cause it to break. When tho  kites are to be drawn in a 2-h-p  steam engine is called into roguisi'  tion, and tho wire pulled in at a rate  of three to six miles an hour.  Thc kites at Blue Hill vary in  height from five to twelve feet and  more, and arc faiily heavy. Th'e  larger en s contain about seventy  squaio feet of supporting surface, and  cxoi t a pull of from seventy to a  hundred pounds. It would bo impossible to manage such an airship by  hand, but by means of'the steam  ;<ffindlaas or reeling apparatus referred  {to thoy are kept under control. ..-.--,  GREAT HEIGHTS REACHED.
