7   Ii I) If  l!  I" ',  P  A GIRi OF GRIT.  By MAJOR    ARTHUR    GRIFFITHS.  light  ���������Copywright by R. F. Fenno & Co.  of  nails tonight.  It  was a curious and not uuimportant  when    viewed   by    tbe  Hp   choc-kin]    bimseir   abruptly    and  witli.a sudden peremptory "������������������sh." and  came out to .invite us most cordially to  ' ,   enter Tlie box.    Tbe re was nothing to  .show   that  any   difference '��������� of   opinion  bad   but   just   agitated   its   occupants.  (Both   husband  and   wife  were smiling  ��������� -swocily;   the   duke's   voice  (he   was 'a  ���������small, spare man, with gleaming eyes  - and glistening teeth  iu  bis dark  olive  face) was now so smooth and silky that  /  I   could   not  imagine  Unit  it   was   the  -same  I   bad'heard  in such  harsh  aud  rasping, angry tones.    His manner, too. ���������  was full of that punctilious formality  that goes with' tlie highest breeding iu  the blue blooded d*n.  Tbe lady .(it'wus she who had been  ���������staring at me) sat,now perfectly quiet  ,    and   self   controlled.     There   was   no  ��������� trace of emotion about bet* as she-welcomed me. with marked anxiety to be  ' pleasant aud make me feel at home.  Tbe entr'acte was not yet ended, antl  tbe duchess swept  her soft draperies  ���������aside to'give me room by her side in  tbcifront'of her box,  where I  was  iu  full   view  of  the  whole  bouse,   Frida  ���������    Fan-holme included.      , ' >  "Why.  Captain  Wood, this Is really  kind   of you." she began, "to take ua  in this informal way.    Directly, I read  ,    of   your   accession   to   old    Mr.    Mc-  Fanght's fortune", I, was most anxious  to  meet 3'ou.     We knew'your uncle���������,  'no?���������well,    your , relative.      Mr.    Me-  Fa light was a friend 'of our family -in  the old days.    I never knew him  my.-  c-self; but I have often beard my father  speak of him and "of bis great wealth.  'Will you let me congratulate you���������and.  TVpc"���������ibis   was   t0( tbe l dukeT-"bave  , ,;you congratulated Captain Wood? , Of  ' "course you have."  "Es claro��������� of course���������I know that  ��������� Captain Wood Ms one of the chief of  fortune's favorites. But believe n'ie.  senor mio, you have also come into  tgrcat trouble. Vast wealth is a tor-  ���������Tible. burden; to use it aright Is' a  -���������grave responsibility. Especially so  -when���������you will pardou me. CaptaiD  Wood���������it has come' undeserved.'.' ���������  "But,' Pepe, it is not fair to say that.  -Captain Wood, was a relation���������he had a  .right to inherit."   '  "I only mean that Captaino Wood  ���������does not know, probably will never  ���������know, whether' there were not -others  with greater claims���������moral claims. I'  ���������mean���������on Mr. McFaught. That thought  -;would always rankle with me. Vaya,  'l would rather it was you than, me!"  "Do not let him disturb you, my dear  "Captain Wood. The duke has rather  ���������extreme views'in theory, but he knows,  that wealth is wealth. Although we  ���������have no vast store, be would be'sorry  to surrender it." ���������  We got very friendly, quite confidential, together, she and I, as we talked  on. teie-a-tete, tbe duke having gone  off somewhere with Lawford. >   -  '���������Of course you  have not yet tasted,  the joys of possession.    It is all very  n-'W to you still."  " "I hardly realize It, Indeed, or what  "X shall do with it."  "T&ur first business, Captain Wood,  believe mc, will be to keep your for-  ���������tune." She spoke very gravely, looking at me intently over her fan. "Half  "the world will be in league to rob you.  .Ah, but yes, I am in earnest! You men  -fall naturally into three classes���������  ..rogues, fools, and policemen."  "And to which, pray, do I belong?"  '.I asked fcghtly, not taking this bitter  ���������.remark at all seriously.  "Not the first, 1 am sure; it would be  -a bad compliment to say the second,  but if you were wise, you would certainly-become the third. A whole police  force iu your pay would not be too  .many to protect you." . [  -'Are you in earnestV" I said. su_-  ���������denly struc_ with _ometlii__ in her  ���������<?ycs.  ���������.'Very much so. Captain Wood.    If I  were a friend, an old friend, let us say,  I   would   counsel   you,   strongly   urge  - you.  to be .constantly on your guard,  very much on your guard.".  As she spoke a deadly pallor overspread her face, which was high colored, as is oft en seen in very fair haired  wotneu. even when still quite young.  Her husband Iiad returned silently. I  might have said ��������� stealthily, and sha  lirst had caught sight of him standing  there behind me. Why was she thus  terrified.'/ Because theduUe had heard  her last words? '  Whether, or not the Duke of Tierra  Sagrada had even heard bis wife  when so earnestly counseling me to be  uuon my guard. I was unable to judge;  f-t least, he made no' sign. His manner  was perfectly quiet'and natural,- and  lie spoke iu an unconcerned tone when  be pressed me to keep iny seat in the  .from of the box  At the next interval he said very  -courteously "Do you propose to stay  for the -Cavaliena Rustic-ana?' Would  vou care to accompany us? Our carriage is here Susette will be very  pleased to present you."  "Vou arc vrvy good," I said. "I  -should like to go very much if I may  run  away  early.    1   bave a couple  of iater events, that the three  houses I was to visit that night were  within a stone's throw'of each other.'  The first, that of the Dos Rios minister, to which I was introduced by  tlie Duke and Duchess of Tierra Sagrada, was in Rutland Gate. Tbe nest,  Mrs. Qollingbam Smith's, was in  Prince's'Gardens, and the last. Lady  D.elane'si in Prince's Gate. My new  friends would have sent me'on, in their  carriage, especially when they learned  I had not' far to go. This near neighborhood was remarked on by the duke,  when, observing that the reception did  not greatly amuse me, be asked if I  was not dying to get to my dancing,  and where, exactly, I was going.   '  ���������'You' must let' us. send you on to  Prince's Gardens iu the carriage," he  said, very civilly.. "We have brought  you out of your, way'to-a not very  bright .entertainment and ,now we  ought to speed your.' departure. We  must .stay ou here for an hour or so  more, but there is no reason why you  should." . *,    ,   .'  ., I protested that Prince's'Garden's was  only a few yards off, round the corner,  iu fact, and I really preferred to walk.  Besides, I only* meant to look in for a  moment. My real destination was Lady  Delaue's,' which was also quite close  afhand/ ''.'.,  "To be sure, yes, certainly, I know.  Well,'-well, if you will not be persuad- \  -ed.     But  the  carriage   is  entirely  at ;  ,your disposition.    Is that not so, Su- j  sette?" - _     , j  It occurred to me that the duchess  'was not altogether pleased at this off-'  hand disposal of her carriage. So I refused the,kind offer and left them with  the pleasurable sensation of having  made a couple' of charming new acquaintances. , ��������� ��������� ���������  / There was another acquaintance, if  I might'so call him, whether friend or  foe, waiting for -me outside���������the  same shuttling, slipshod creature whom  I had seen so often that evening. Directly ; f went out 1 saw him emerge  from the portico of an unfurnished  house and follow me to,the very door  in Prince's Gardens.  He was still on the watch when I left  Mrs. CoUingham Smith's, having found  nothing-to "detain me there���������no sign ol  Frida Fairholme. whom I had hoped  to run down. 1 wonid now have confronted this pertinacious "shadow."  calling him to account "for thus dogging  my footsteps, andoif he gave no satisfaction, handing him over to, the police.

FRIENDLY ADVICE.  TO WEATv,  NERVOUS AND EASILY  ' ,T_JRED WOMJDN.  Given in thc Story of  One Who Had  Suffered and lias Found Renewed  Health and  Strength.  From  the > Sun,  Orangeville,   Out.  ���������   It is a good many vears sin-nce the  might  :to be borne. Mrs. Fairholme. her  mother, could give me no news'of h'ei  charged "Yes, Frida is here, some-  where. That is all I know," she answered in , a weary,- faroff, seini-  somnolent. voice, as, no doubt, she had  answered a dozen similar queries. "But  I have not seen her for an hour or  more. I do wish. Mr. Wood, you wo'uld-  find her and bring her to me," she said. m'3  plaiutively.  As -1 wandered about dejectedly, all  at' once I heard, "Captain Wood, Miss  Fairholme wants to speak to you." and  I saw a hated rival, with no friendliness in his face,' pointing to where  Frida sat behind a great mass of flowering azaleas.  She was as gracious a sight as ever,  orie of the fairest and brightest of a  sex created for the delight and torment of mankind. Her dress is beyond  my powers of description. I think it  was a pale blue satin with pink roses,  but that is all I can say, except that  from the feathery aigret that crowned  her sunny hair to the tip of a tiny shoo  pushed a little out. but working fretfully upon the carpet, she was the  roost absolutely charming woman I had  ever seen.  *'l don't think I shall speak to you."  began Miss, Frida, with a sniff. "What  have you to say for yourself? Are you  I ware that I kept 5*011 three dances"���������  I. took a seat by her side without  answering, and then, giving way to an  elation I did not exactly feel, iu spite  of the great change in my fortunes. I  laughed iu her face.  "Really, Captain Wood. I am at a  loss   to   understand   this   most   idiotic  good wrought by Dr. Williams' Pink  Fills was' lirst recorded in the columns of the Sun, but during that  period the sterling'merit oI'<the medicine has increased its reputation  and   every  day  adds   to   thc  number  **���������* ���������" v  of those who 'have found health  through the use of these famous  pills. -rMany in this town have, freely  spoken of the benefit they havo derived i'ro'hi thc use ' of Dr.'Williams'  Pink Pills, and to these another is  added in the person,, of Miss 'Victoria Yv'iddis. To a reporter of the  Sun who had heard of her cure, Miss  AViddis -"said. : -"Several years ago 1  became very much run down; 1 felt  tired all the * time, my blood was  watery and J was in what the physicians called an anaemic' condition!;'  1 was always weary and worn out,  not able to do anything and yet not  sick enough to be in bed. oMy heart  bothered 1110 . with its constant palpitation, brought about by my extreme1 weakness. My appetite railed  L\nd L was gradually growing-  worse. 1 had heard and. read of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills and decided to  give them a trial. After using them  a short*" time a decided change was  noticablc and it is no exaggeration  to . say that I felt like an entirely  different person. My appetite returned and with it good blood and  strong nerves. 1 can conscientiously  sav for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that  they did me more good than I can  tell To all weak, nervous, easily  tired, run down women, I say by  aU means give Dr. Williams' Pink  Fills a trial and you will be delighted with the result."

Suppose he is backward about walking,  what difference does it make? A child  who follows his own ideas in learning  to walk will succeed much better and  learn self reliance at the same time.  Tbe same rule holds good in regard  to sitting up. If he is forced to sit up  too soon, it will have a tendency to  weaken his back and interfere with  his growth.

A  long time ago  the  wedding ring  was worn on the  forefinger and  was  thickly studded  with precious stones.  People who have seen the old pictures  of the Madonna in Rome will retnem-,  ber that in one or two of them there  is a glistening ring on  the forefinger  of her right hand, but with Christianity came the wearing of the wedding  ring on the third finger rather than the  first.    The old story of there being a  vein that runs from that linger to the  heart,   says   the   Chicago   Tribune,   is  nonsense.     Its  use originated  in  this  way:   The  priest   first  put  it on   the  thumb,  saying,   "In  the  name of the  Father;" on the forefinger, adding. "In  the name of tne Son;" on the second,  finger, repeating, "In the name of the  Holy Ghost," and on tbe third finger,  ending  with   "Amen."     And  there   it  stayed.  Doctoring- a Clock.

The East  Indian also sleeps in a bag, but it is not  airtight, and it is only intended to protect bim from mosquitoes.  True   Genius.  "I tell you that poet is a genius."  "A  genius?

A man from the west who was recently visiting Maine fell into conversation with a quiet old farmer on a  train. He was full of the greatness of  the ' west and talked about tbe big  farms and big crops of bis particular  section and wound up by saying. "1  suppose you do manage to pick up a  living on these little Maine farms." '  The old Maine farmer smiled sadly  and replied: "Yes. and a few years ago  some of us invested money in your section, and it is there yet. It was a permanent investment, I guess." .  Tlie western man changed tbe conversation.  The productiveness of.

Lewis -Jones of   Fcst-  iniog     to  prevail    upon   the     small  band      of  people      which'   eventually  maide the venture.    The motives      of    ���������  the   self-deceived  leaders     ,in        the  movement   will   always remain open . '  to   debate.   The      attraction    tos the  rank     and   file    was   (.he  vision '   ,of  free land,   Immunity   from taxes', and'  the 'self-government so dear    to   "tho "  heart of the   Welshman.      Fired with  these ideas,, the imaginative     .Cy.niry  saw visions     of     a    Cymric Utopia."'

They were brave,  ,  earnest';  laborious,  ready and willing  to sacrifice self.     .It  is pathetic     to ���������  think     of the     shock'these      ��������� bravo  ',men' and  women encountered      when    '  they finally' landed   on  the        desert    ���������.  shores   of  New   Bay,   and   discovered' , ;  that      the  country   they   had   fondly  pictured  a~  one  of  illimitable        re- . t  ' source      was   nothing   but   a   barren .

Some persons are advocating a substitute for death by electricity and banging. They have advocated poisoning.  Well, nothing could be more effective  or painless than execution by means of  a capsule filled with hydrocyanic acid.  It might be served without the knowledge of the convict, and death would  be so sudden and so certain that there  could be no resurrection. A single drop  placed on tbe tongue of a big dog  causes instant-death. A half teaspoon-  ful taken by a man will cause bim to  drop as if struck by lightning. There  is no antidote.

A ,'certain Kansas man. so the story  goes, wanted to tell a neighbor what  he thought of him without laying himself open to a suit for damages. So he  hit on the plan of sending him each  day a postal card with only one word  written on it'in a large baud, in addition to tbe date obscurely tucked away  in a cornier. * ,   '  The person receiving the������cards recognized tbe handwriting and, suspecting something, kept them until they  stopped coining, when ,he read them  consecutively ,in tbe order of their reception. , What he read was, "Ridicu-  ��������� lous old Bill .fonos is the meanest cuss  in town," and he ,at once instituted a  suit for slander against the sender.  The hitter's lawyer, however, called  attention to .the fact that the postal'  card containing "ridiculous." thou di  mailed lirst, was dated tbe day. after  tlie date of the card having the word  "town." Moreover, a careful inspection  would show that after the word .'���������ridiculous'' was an exclamation point,  and after the word "towu" was am interrogation mark, so that the series of  postal cards might be made to read:'  "Old, Bill is tho meanest cuss in tow::?  Ridiculous!" E-ie claimed, therefore,  that instead of slandering the plaintiff  his client bad defended him from slander, and this plea was sustained by,the  court. '  E5ut., all tbe same, everybody in town  insisted that the lirst reading of the  cards was the correct one, so that the  writer attained bis object.

Ho-nehoia   Becomes   Badly   Torn   Up  ,   Over It���������He Gets Suspicious of Mrs.  B,  and Accuses  Her  of  Attempting  \   to Assassinate Hiin. -   '  [Copyright. 1902, by C. B. Lewis.]  IT made Its first appearance on a  Monday  morning���������Mr. , Bowser's  boil.   He -was ten minutes late at  r -,    breakfast, and when Mrs. Bowser  solicitously  inquired  if   he   had   been,  hunting for a lost collar button he curtly replied:  "I have a -word or two to say to you  after breakfast on a certain matter.",  He maintained a frigid attitude during the remainder of the meal, and she  thought of the coal bill, the gas bill.j  the butcher bill, and lost" clothespins!  and wondered -where the thunderbolt  "1 WANT  YOU   TO LOOK AT  TIIE   BACK'OF  ��������� 1 ������     ' Ml KECK."   ,  .���������would strike. When they went up  stair's, he pulled off his coat and vest  and pulled back his collar and said:  - "I want you to look at the back of  my neck. It has pained me all night.  ��������� Isn't there a lump around there some-  iwhere?"   , ���������  "I can't say for certain," she replied,  as she inspected, "but I should think  you were going to have a boil.   There's  a lump there, and it's fiery red."  "Bui how can I have a boil on the  ' back of my neck?'' he demanded as he  drew away.      ���������"   -     <  "They do come there, don't they?"  5     "If that's a boil, it's not my fault.  What have I, donevto bring out a boil?  Woman, I won't stand any nonsense  about this thing.".- -  "But if it's a boil can I help it?" she  protested. "Your blood must have got  out of order during the - winter.    You  ��������� ^wanted buckwheat  pancakes  once  a  day,   and   buckwheat   always   brings  boils." k  , ,  He started for his office carrying his  head stiffly, and soon after he had left  the house the cook came up to say:  "You'd better go down town and see  .about a new cook, ma'am. If that  turns out to be a boil on Mr. Bowser's  neck, I wouldn't stay in this house for  $100 a week: I was working .for a man  once who had a boil, and he got up in  the'night and tried to murder me."  Mrs. Bowser hoped against hope until 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Then  Mr. Bowser came home, two hours  ahead of time. She saw the glare in  his eye as he banged the hall door  open, and she knew that the boil had  ' blossomed out and become a fixture.  "Do you know what this infernal  thing is?V he demanded as he sat down  .on the lounge and lifted his hand to  his neck.  "I'm sorry if it's a boil." she replied.  "Well, it is, and it will probably  cause my death before the week is out.  It is the opinion of the doctor that poison has been injected into my system."  "But how could such a thing happen?"  He stared at her fixedly for half a  minute and then bent such a ferocious  look on the family cat, who stood eying  him with anxiety, that the animal uttered a hiss and .fled into the parlor.  Mrs. Bowser at once went down to the  kitchen to make a flaxseed poultice,  and, although it was evident that" Mr.  Bowser regarded her as a would be  murderess, she got his collar and tie  off and the poultice on after a little  argument. He had no appetite for  dinner, and during the long evening he  dozed and muttered and threw out  dark hints.  Tuesday morning the boil was almost  full blown, and Mr. Bowser went about  with his head down as if hunting for  lost pins. During the day and evening  he had ten fresh poultices, and Mrs.  ���������Bowser made him gruel, tea and toast  about once an hour. He had little to  say. but it was evident that he knew  she had arranged for that boil days beforehand.  Wednesday morning the boil had  reached . perfection and would haye  taken the prize at any county fair. The  color was deep red, and the hardness  was akin to a November pear. Mr.  Bowser took up a position on the broad  of his back on the lounge and only  moved when fresh poultices were applied or the cat set up.a wail. Seeing  that he was helpless, the cook decided  to stay on, but held herself ready for  any sudden emergency. Along toward  evening Mr. Bowser delivered a brief  address on  Lucrczia  Borgia.    It was  leveled at Mrs. Bowser, and she understood. ���������  Friday morning Mr. Bowser got up  with/ a bad hump on his back, and as  , he ate his tea and toast he requested  Mrs. Bowser to telephone for a lawyer  to draw up his .will' and added with  ["considerable zest t&at he should leave  | every dollar of his possessions to found  ian asylum for tramps. She telephoned,  jbut the lawyer had gone off on an  ���������early fishing excursion, and bis office  ,boy declined the job. ;. The cat was  ;barred out of the room all day and  word was sent to the cook that if she  didn't stop banging the dishpan about,  the hand of justice would clutch her  throat with' merciless grasp. There  were moments when Mr. Bowser wanted Mrs. Bowser to'lijold his hand and  promise that she would visit his last  resting place once a week during the  rest of her life, a-nd there were moments when he charged her with getting, up in the middle or the night to  run a poisoned darning needle into the  back of his neck to cut short his days.  The bell was 'muflled, ' the curtains  drawn and to all anxious inquiries the  cook replied:    ��������� .^-.  "No; he isn't dead'yet,' nor have they  sent him away to an, insane asylum,  but we are prepared for the worst. He  may sink away as softly as a canary  bird or he may try to tear the house  down before he goes."  Mr..Bowser was still alive when Saturday morning dawned, and, although  he announced that his end was near,  he insisted on creeping'down stairs to  " on THE       i  REBOUND    *  By GARFIELD MACNEAL ������  I  Copyright.  1901, by  ������arfleld MacNeal.       ^  his favorite lounge.    Mrs. Bowser had  used up,five pounds of flaxseed and a  pint of arnica on the boil, but was still  hard  at; work  and   making  no  complaints.   She announced a decided improvement, with signsof a "burst, but  he took no interest in her' words.    At  noon-, however, he .aroused'himself and  admitted tba't he had not been the husband he oughtto have been andasked  her  forgiveness  for  his   many  shortcomings.   She freely forgave bim, and  an hour'later he demanded to know  why she hadn't struck him with the  a:r. as he lay sleeping instead of rosort-  ing to poison.   The afternoon waned.,  and evening, came, and it was necessary for Mrs. Bowser to visit the drugstore after more flaxseed.    The druggist was a' kind, hearted man, and he  did his best to,cheer her.   He had had  thirty   years'   experience  in tbe drug  business.' and in all that time he had  I never known a' boil on the back of the,  neck to prove fatal.   Such a* boil, taken  in conjunction with a head on collision,  the, collapse of a- building or an earthquake shock, had brought about direful  results,  but-alone by itself was  not  greatly to be feared. ��������� Mrs. Bowser returned homo in more cheerful spirits,  and as she softly opened the front door  she was alarmed to hear Mr." "Bowser  dancing about and singing a verse of a  topical song.    At tbe door of the sitting  room  she,beheld  him  cavorting  about with tbe cat in his arms and the  bandages off his neck, and as she cried  out in alarm he turned and shouted:  "She's bursted! Come in, old woman.'  and have some toast with me!"  Mr. Bowser's boil had broken, and  death had passed him by. He cackled  and laughed and chucked her under  the chin; but,,,suddenly remembering  his policy, he drew himself up stiffly  and said:  "Yes. woman, your fourteenth attempt to assassinate me has failed, and  you can instruct your lawyer to -see  my lawyer tomorrow morning!"   .

' She  parted   the  cretonne curtains of her bed,-curtains  covered with red roses, suggestive, of  summer sunshine, and .turned her eyes  toward   the   window.     Rain   beating  against the panes and dull- gray sky  proclaimed ,a> cheerless November day.  'She  sighed.    Then,   stretching  out  a  shapely arm,  she took a silver hand  mirror from the nearby dressing table  and   carefully   studied   her   features.  In the language of Shakespeare she  saw  "no .deeper  wrinkles  j'et,"   face  long and,oval, patrician in outline and  -expression,' skin    rather   olive,   eyes  brown,deep and luminous, a mouth generously molded, and a wealth of brown  hair.    On the whole it was a notable'  face aud ono of character.  Dropping tlie mirror on the bed, she  called, .'"Lois!" A French maid, neat,  trim and smiling, appeared with the  breakfast tray.   *<  "Ah,   ma'm'selle!    A thousand -congratulations on your birthday."  ' ��������� "My thirtieth, Lois! , But thank yov  just.the'same." -  . "Ma'm'selle, is :still young, - and, already fame has come to you. And  when, your novel is published tho world  will be at your feet," said Lois with a  comprehensive sweep indicating' the  world.  "Oh, yes, the novel," murmured her  mistress, sitting up aud starting in on  her coffee and rolls, while, the 'maid  laid a bundle of letters and manuscripts on the bed.  . Miss Tread well opened the one bulky  'package and looked at the accompanying letter. .It was from a great pub-,  lishing house, formally expressing regret that they were unable to accept  her novel.     " c  She gulped down' something in her,  throat. fHer novel declined!^ Her first  really original work, to which she had  given the leisure hours of six years!  Truly, this was<a most delightful birthday gift. '       ': ,'a  "Lois," she said���������and her voice trembled���������"Lois, my", novel has' been de-,  clined." o -* ,*  "Ah, ma'm'selle, I am too sorry"���������  with quick sympathy���������"but some other  publisher will accept it."    c  Her mistress shook her' head. "I  shall not send it out again. I shall  stick to hack work. I can at least  make a living at that." Then she added reflectively, "my life has been a  failure."  Lois protested. She worshiped her  mistress. "Ma'm'selle has been successful. You have a pretty apartment  and everything you want."  "Other women, too, have ' pretty  apartments and everything they  want."  "Ah. yes, but they did not work for  them," said Lois with a worldly shrug  as she went in response to the electric  bell, which at this, moment buzzed  loudly in the hall.  She reappeared with a huge white  box. "Flowers, ma'm'selle, and a  note," she said gayly.  Miss Treadwell cut the ribbon that  held the bdx and disclosed a mass of  violets. They seemed to look up at  her tenderly yet shrinkingly as she  bent over them. With a sigh of pleasure she took the note and studied the  bold handwriting of the superscription. Her heart jumped. Surely. :it'  was Jack's! Dear old Jack had remembered her!  ��������� She slit across the end of the envelope while her fingers trembled and  eagerly unfolded the paper.  "Dear Lillian," she read; "may I  hope that this remembrance of your  birthday will prove tbayt I have not  forgotten you?: I have been in town  two. days. 1 secured your address  from C.'s Magazine and send these  'flowers to warn you that I am coming  to invade your sanctum sanctorum and  talk over old times. Always your  friend. Jack Ainsworth."  Sho. started up, scattering letters and  manuscripts on tbe floor. "Lois!" she  said decidedly. "I waut you to lay out  my new morning gown, the sea green  one with the train."  Sitting down, at; her dressing table,  she began a careful toilet. Her  thoughts were busy with the'-.p.ast.  Jack had been her girlhood friend in  the little inland town where they were  both born and bred. Again she was  twenty-four and he was twenty-six.  Why had he never spoken? She knew  he loved her, and, perhaps, she had  loved him, too, then. But when her  mother's death left her alone in the  world, she was seized with the desire  to come to New York to try her fortune. Jack had advised against it,  but a strange perversity made her deaf  to his warnings.  At first they had kept up a correspondence. Soon even that link was broken as she was drawn more and more  into the absorbing whirl of newspaper  "Mammy's" Art Criticism.  The old negro "mammy" of the antebellum type is fast disappearing, and  w'hen one does meet with the genuine  article there is generally reason to remember the occasiou pleasantly, says  the Baltimore Sun. Recently a gentleman was making some purchases in a  small grocery in west Baltimore, when  there entered the store one of those  characters belonging to the days gone  by. i  Hanging conspicuously on the wall  of the store was a large lithograph depicting an airily clad youngster in a  field of waving grain. The picture immediately caught the eye of the newcomer.  and magazine work.   For five years no  letters had passed between them.'., To  be sure she'had heard of, him indirectly,   bow   he   gradually   forged   ahead  from' .clerk   in   the   railroad   office  to  manager of the whole system, and she  had been glad for his sake.  , Aud  now,  after alt this time, they  were to meet.   She wondered what he  would be like.    Doubtless he -had lost'  the fresh,  boyish  beauty  she so  well  remembered. ' He was past thirty now,  she reflected with a sigh.    Doubtless,  tod. his career as a man of affairs had  made him brusque and cold.'   She had  vjsious of bearded cheek and chin.-aud  perhaps���������glasses!   ��������� Horrors! " Had   It  really come to that?   Well, she would  live in the old days, and pay no attention to externals.  ,,When 'at last Lois announced that  Mr. Ainsworth was in the drawing  room, she swept to her mirror and surveyed the gracefxil figure reflected  there. ' Her gown of. sea green fell in  shimmering folds. Her hair.was done  beautifully, ' and some., of the violets  were clasped in the silver girdle at her  waist. Sne could not fail to be satisfied.  'This   consciousness, helped   her   to  enter the drawing 'room with the per-  rect self possession of a woman of the  world. With outstretched hand she  greeted him as if they had parted but  yesterday. ,   ..        ���������  "Jack! How good of������you to come tc  see xno on my birthday���������and to send  me these lovely flowers," turning to a  center, table where the violets' were  displayed.   ' ��������� ���������  *    ' '  Jack Ainsworth gasped. Could this  elegant'woman with her,perfect hair  and silvery voice be his old friend?  "Lillian," he said, still grasping her  hand, "is it"really 3-011?" ���������  ���������  She,smiled, and it was,her old smile:  "Yes. Jack, it is. I.   ,You see, I,am  going the way of the world."  "Nonsense! - You are perfect!'.' he  cried vehemently.  She was no less charmed. There was  no evidence of beard or,glasses, though  the boy had grown into-the man���������tall,  athletic, clean shaven, with strong jaw  and deep voice. His honest gray eyes  feasted on her beauty.' She flushed.  "Tell me what you have been doing  all these years. Jack," she s'aid finally.  "Oh,   working   hard���������and   following  your' career." , '   '        - "       '  , "Yes," she said, "you have done ws-l!  for, yourself and I am pi*oud of you.  As for my career, it has not amounted  to much."  "Lillian," Ainsworth said, leaning  forward eagerly, "do youi know that  you .have not written a line I have not  read. You ceased to-write to me, but  I did not forget, dear." . * ' u ���������-  Miss .Treadwell' had forgotten the  rain and-the unfeeling publisher.  "Tell me. Jack, what brings you to  New York?" she' asked.  "I have been elected vice president  of the road and must live here," he replied.  "Then I suppose you will marry and  keep up an establishment?" with a  pretense of lightness.  "I don't know," he said dubiously.  "There never was but one girl for me,  and she���������she has achieved fame. She  would not think of giving up glory to  become the wife of a*railroad man."  A feeling long dead woke in.the woman. "But she might be willing, Jack,  if you asked her," she said almost  wistfully. "She.might gladly give ,up  all her false glory to find real happiness."  "If I thought that," said Ainsworth  breathlessly, "I'd ask her in a minute."  ' She thought of the novel, of the hack  work, of the loneliness of her life  which this friend of the past brought  sharply before her.  "Jack," she said, "I've decided"���������  She paused, then went on rapidly,  fingering the violets .In her belt, "to  give up literature for good."  Ainsworth started, forward. "Do you  really mean it, Lillian?"  ��������� "Yes, I do," she replied bravely.  "But .why?" he inquired, doubting,  puzzled.  ' She looked up at him, and he read it  in her shining eyes.  He leaped forward and folded her in  his arms, crushing the violets in his  eagerness. "My darling!" was all he  could say in trembling tones.  As for Miss Treadwell, with that embrace came the realization that woman  was not made to live on mind alone.  "Lois," she called, after a 'little,  "bring . me the manuscript of my  novel." She took it, from the Wondering maid and turned to Jack with a  radiant smile. "Come," she cried gayly���������"come to my study fire and help me  make dust and ashes of my literary  pretensions."  ,"Who dat?" she, asked the clerk.  "Why, that is George Washington,"'  replied tbe clerk, with a twinkle in his-  eye.  "Huh!" grunted aunty dubiously. "Hit.  luks mo' lak Moses in de ambush."  /  They Still Name the Cook.  A queer custom, which prevails at no  other court than that of Great Britain,-  is the announcement at the beginning  of, each course at a dinner of the name  of,the cook who has prepared the'disb-  es served.    The origin of this,custom'  dates back to the reign of King George  II., who made a great favorite of one  of his cooks, promoting him to the ra.uk  of chief over, the- heads of all his seniors.    This,   of  course^  created  great  jealousy,  and every ;effort was made  to oust him from royal favor by ren-,  dering him responsible for-the failures  which were laid upon the king's table.  Greatly incensed' thereby and fearing  to lose,his post, he complained to the  king in person, who immediately gave,  orders that henceforth whenever i dish,  was placed before him the name of the  cook responsible for its success,'.or failure should be announced in an audibk  toue. *��������� , ,'    ���������  He Wan Rather "Close."

Poor  Old  Lady  Beaconsfield.,      T  '   There is nothing in his life, says Lord  Ronald,  that redounds more to Lord  Beaconsfieid's credit than the manner  in   which   he  treated   his  wife.

The question of "purity of language" is a difficult oi:e to discuss,  for without doubt, the colloquial usage of a language differs radically  9from the written and literary expression of a people'. No one who  "talks like a book" can be said to  "speak" good English*.- there is a  picturesque carelessness of expression,- a license m tho t:se of adjectives', which marks the successful  conversationalist. ' There are certainly words and phrases which arc  amid   unique     sur-  daily being born  roundings,, which  virility    to'     the  add strength   ,  and  spoken language,  which, when they become' rooted in  our literature, destroy its purity,and  style, simply, because 1 hay'arc the  ��������� outcome of conditions which are  transitory, and occupy no fixed place  in the development of our . people.  "Words even as ornamentation, 'When  th'cy, cease 'to express a certain fact,  become superfluous and distort the  language. What is meant by purity  of language is lucidity, delicacy >qf  perception, , "'-an intuitive feeling for  words'.

Gentlemen:  1 feel  it my  duty  to   you   and    to  the     public  at   large to     tell    what  Dodd's   Kidney Pills have done   for  'me.  ' About one1' year ago I began to  suffer with severe pains over the region of my kidneys, . followed by a  very  lethargic  feeling.  When 1 lay down, it was torture  to get up again.  This state continued for sometime,  and all the while L was still getting  weaker and losing flesh rapidly.  My appetite \vas very much impaired, and at last I was obliged to  call  in a physician.  Pie gave my sufferings a very learned name, and doctored me for some  time, but I got no better.  J called in several, other physicians,-, but it was of no-use: my sufferings got worse all the time until  I  began  to despair of life.    l  A friend advised me to use Dodd's  Kidney Pills. I was very skeptical,  but was prevailed upon to commence  a treatment: the first box.made' me  feel some better.  1 passed a stone that had formed  in tho bladder.  I continued thc use of Dodd's Kitl-  ney Pills until I had used three  boxes, and now believe that I have  a radical and complete cure, ns it Is  six months since I used any of the  Pills, and have had no symptoms or  return   of the  malady.  ,T .know that my cure is duo to  Dodd's Kidney Pills, as I used, no  other medicine after commencing  their use.

By its gradual and judicious  use the frailest systems are led into convalescence and strength by the influence which  Quinine exerts on nature's own restoratives.  It relieves the drooping spirits of thosa with  whom a chronic state of morbid despondency and lack of interest in life is a disease,  /and, by tranquilizing the nerves, disposes to  i sound and refreshing sleep���������imparts vigor  to the action of the blood, which, being  stimulated, courses throughout the veins,  strengthening the healthy animal functions  of the system, thereby making activity a  necessary result, strengthening the frame,  and giving life to the digestivo organs, which  naturally demand increased substance���������result, improved appetite.

There is also a  great trade to be developed i hrough  the whole of Canada, and the Empire in these directions.
