GEORGE EATHEONE  Having; accomplished all that was  possible the two friends commenced  "j������:e descent, which \vas more of a  task than the climb had been. Lord  Bruno .had, at the suggestion of  'Bludsoe, carried a lasso, .without  which no respectable cowboy would  over mount a horse.  This rope came in useful enough   on  several occasions,! when it was doubled   over  the  outcropping-  limb   of    a  "���������tree, and allowed the two  adventur-  ���������ers an 'Opportunity  to reach  the foot  of an abrupt descent.  Thus thej' arrived at the base of  'the lull, and entered the dense stretch  of forest.  Game abounded 'on all sides, and  but for the dangerous condition that  -rendered the discharge of a rifle ' especially hazardous, the -temptation  'to use* their weapons must have prov-  ������en  irrestible. i  ' It was. while they were' advancing  in the direction of the'secret camp  ���������that, the Englishman suddenly clutch-  <cd   the  arm  of  his, companion,    .and  l)omtod to the left, as though he had  <lijco\<'i'ed that which demanded   im-  . mediate attention.  camp, ana push on in the ditectum  which Rex had marked as their  course '  ,    Lord   Bruno   was   met  by   the  chief  of    the   cowboys   upon   their   return,  and'heard  their  report.     It  was    to  the effect that several bands of moving impis had  been  seen'bar  the   sentries   while   our   friends   were    away  upon    their    expedition,   but   though  their  garb   indicated  that  they   were  upon   the   warpath   rather   than   en-,  gaged in a simple hunting expedition,  they  had  not  come, close  enough    to  delect any signs  of  the' invaders.  Slowly   the   time   passed  It was  somewhere in  the neighborhood of three  o'clock  when Bex  was  lying  there   m  a  half  doze,   that     he  saw Bludsoe hastily enter  the camp,  coining from the lookout.  His manner indicated that he had  made a discovery of some importance. Bex saw him speak to Lord  Bruno, who immediately, picked up  his gun, and accompanied the cowboy. They vanished among the trees  in the direction from whence the expedition had  come.  That something was in the wind  Bex could easily guess. The sleep  had now vanished utterly from his  eyes. He was never more wideawake in his life.  Sitting up he awaited the return of  the two who had gone forth.

What the ultimate result of the tug  of war might ha-, p bom but for the  -coming of the twain upon the scene,  must be left entirely to con lecture.  "Whether the plucM -scientist would  have e\ eutii.'Ih succeeded m securing the masterv, or, finding himself  beina dragged at the heels of the  monkey be compelled in self-defense  -to cut loose nith his knife, must remain a nn-teiy  At     the   .nip"1 ranee   of   our   friends  the animal  redoubled   his  clfotls, and  poor  Jules  v\as  tosr-i'd  about  like an  - ad veil1 in ou<!   thi^l le-dn\\ n  When Bruno m.Magcd to lay hold  .of the rope, a new clement entered  'the game, and the beast's defeat was  -settled, .

Then  an advance was made from several  quarters, but the beast looked so  fierce in his de.-paiiv that, being do-,  ���������barred from -Using their guns', they  were compelled to resort to strategy  in order to accomplish his doAiifalB  Retreating-.before them the beast  gradually shortened his circuit and  wound himself up until he was pow-  - arless to" resist and fell an easy prey  to  their  combined  assault.  As the gentleman of science had ere  this  made up  his   mind    he ' did   net  %vant the monkey half as inuch as'he  -had   thought,   when   the    lasso     had  been recovered they allowed the brute  .3, chance to shuiflie  off,   which  he  did  with the most frightful grimaces and  ��������� chattering,  as    though   invoking    the  curse of the great voodoo of the nion-  ;:'key, race    upon   their   heads   on     account of the indignities he had endur-  ���������ed.

A few  hours more and  they would.  ���������&5>el   at   libertv   to   abandon   the   little  best   use   of  -time.     !Sot  a  sound  came  from  depths  of  the  great forest  save  'cries   of    wild   birds.       One1    of  horses was pawing- the ground.    Was  that    a   sign   of  hunger,   or   did   the"  beast recognize  the''existence  of danger m soine shape near by������ ?��������� Really,  Bex- was  not^ suimciently  educated   in  the sign of wood and plain to' tell. *  Almost  half an hour  had  crept  by,  and  still  the  two  had  not  returned.  His  ears   had  been 'on  the  alet t",   but  the  report   of "a  gun  either  near     at'  hand or far away had failed to reach  him'.       His   , curiosity     grew    apace  Could   they   have   gone' to   the    lull  again, so that Bludsoe might impress  a   mental   map   of   ihe     surroundings'  upon that wonderfully retentive brain  of his?     Rex could  hardly believe it,  since they had left the laager headed  in lust the 'opposite direction  This, brought to mind the fact that  they had  themselves, corne from  that'  quarter.        What   object'1 could   it   be  that  induced' the' scout   to   go    upon  the  back  trail"?  He was still debating this subject  without having arrived at > any definite conclusion,' when his attention  was attracted by" moving figures, advancing  through'the  forest. ,-  The' first sensation he experienced  was one of sudden^'alarm, for vhis  eyes had fallen upon the_ tall figure  ol" a blackt warrior, decked- in the-  paint, andi cat-tails and"1 gewgaws  that go to make up an impr on the  warpath.i <  Then Rex''drew a sigh of relief as  he discovered another fact���������on either  side of the brave stalked a form,  and in these he instantly recognized  Lord  Brlmo  and  Bludsoe.  Another glance, and he had discovered that the black, inarching with  a haughty step between his captors,  had his hands bound behind jiis back,  while a rude gag prevented him from  ma'king an  outcry. "  Hastings could guess the truth  now, remembering how the scout  brought sudden news to milord, and  the two had immediately gone out as  if to  battle  Undoubtedly the lynx eyes of R������d  Eric had discovered the black following their trail. 'All that was necessary for them to do was to select  a choice position, and then after the  fellow had passed bv Bludsoe with  a whirl of his trained arm had sent  a coil of rope spinning thioii'ih the  air, the noose settling o\ er the  shoulders of the impi, when he was  instantly hurled to the ground, to be  set upon by Lord Bruno ere he could  undei stand what had befallen him,  or gather his -uits enough to send  forth a signal whoop  "What to do with the fellow was a  conundrum.  Bludsoe endcavo'-cd to communicate  with him but the effort v. as a failure. Either the black did not undei stand, or else deigned to make no  leply.

' One of the most convenient of these  legacies in 'the great cities is the fash-  , ion of dining'and supping at a smart  restaurant, a custom that, like most  pleasant things, comes to us from Paris.

It is a survival of antiquated ideas  that one may pay many dollars for an  evening gown, but that one or more  expended in having the coilTure nicely  dressed represents sinful extravagance.  The loosely arranged ~ French waved  coiffure is still first favorite, though  the very latest style is to have the hair  parted in the center, arranged in soft,  loose waves and cleverly manipulated  at the back into a mass of coils and  puffs, lying*low on the neck, sometimes  ���������with one or two quite loug curls straying lightly on the shoulders.

The  - boy who was walking briskly on the railway track looked up at the blue sky and  'sniffed the fresh  air with, keen  satisfac-  .. tion._   He wast a boy of perhaps 17, tall  , for''his age and well put together.    He  , was-comfortably   dressed,   and  over his  shoulders   swung   a   canvas   bag   off the  telescope variety.    The.track was laid on  ,1'   an embankment and extended onward in  an'almost straight line as far as'the eye'  - ''could reach.    The boy could look across1  ' the level fields'on either side and note the  ' j   chimps of trees heie and there,, with the  \, 'farmhouses .nestling near and the'great  , v twoods and" faroff hills'1 behind: ' It was a  pleasant  prospect, > and   the .-pleasure   of  ' viewing it'seemed reflected on the boy's  'face.      -  >- .    ',      "' -       '    _   r������-'"  Suddenly'his attention was attracted by  , < a figure on the'track ahead.    It'1 was the  figure of a-man, and<*ihe, man was sitting  ' on a, tie with his feet dangling down the  i embankment. ,The man arose as the boy  1   drew near.   He was a young man with,a  ,   bright  face and very, bright eyes.   "His  ""eyes sparkled '"as"the^bpy neared.him.  ' .  - "A fair morning, young sir," he said as  he arose. , <K  "Yes," 'assented the boy.- He looked  * the stranger'over.   ,He was tall and slen-,  der, his clothes were ,fine, though dusty,  and he bore a valise that showed the effects of much travel.' <��������� j  *- He' fell into step with the hoy as they  , 'trudged along side by side. '      i  < "Rather dull ^prospect for.,, a solitary  "��������� stroller," said the stranger:  - ."Not dull, for me,"isaid the boy.    "I'm  on ,my way home!" t'   r   " r       ' -  .',    \ "That does make a,difference," said the  stranger. ; He' looked the .boy over.  "Been  '-   away long?" '-      ^-,    /,.*",   v   ,  j. ."Six months.",replied the boy.    "Been;  at work'in a Chicago store.- -It's my" first'  - vacation."    ,  "Then I don't wonder the lprospect is  ^alluring," said the stranger. "Usually,  though, the first homecoming is attended  with ^some little pomp and ceremony.  May I ask why you gravel on the ties in-'  stead of in a private car?"  The boy laughed. *    .  ,"Well," he said, "it's partly for the exercise and partly to save the money. You  can't get much exercise, you know, running an elevator at'SG a week. And you  can'fesave much either. So'I save a little  i more and get the exercise, too, by walking the 15 miles from the junction,",  "So it's the coming home that makes  the walking pleasant," said the stranger.  And he softly" sighed.  "May I ask where you are going?" inquired the boy.  "You may ask. but I can't tell you," replied the "stranger. "I'm a vagabond, a  wapderer,' a first cousin of the tramp.  'Last night I was an actor, today I'm a  tie counter. Tomorrow? Oh, well, something will turn up tomorrow."  "And have you no home?"  i "None that I've any right "to claim.  I'm the black sheep of the family, my  boy, and black sheep are not popular with  the white ones. I've a very iespectab!e  brother, and a very grand - sister-in-law.  and a mother whos-e heart I have wrung  ' and who������e faith I have abused. There  would he no fatted calf for this prodigal."  " Then his bitter tone suddenly changed.  "Not a very agreeable companion for a  pleasant moraina walk, am I'J" he In ugh  ed.  "I think you are wrong about your  home," said the boy. "Ifdoe������a't seem  as if my mother could help but be glad to  see me. no matter how 1 came nor what  I bin) done. Doesn't your mother wtite  to you?"  "She doesn't know .where I  am." said  the stranger a little'slowly.   "I've changed  my name, and  I'm a.stiolling actor.   -At  least   I   was.

"I'm going-to believe it's true, anyway,  j went to Chicago-to do great things, and  I tramped the streets for ten days, tired  and hungry, looking for work, bur T'didu't  give it up. And when I found a job it  was only $2 a week.: But I stuck to it,  and I've been climbing little by little ever  since; And I don't mean to stop." He  paused. "1 guess one thing that kept up  my courage, was the thought that my  mbther was praying for me and that there  was a good hoine with its -door always  open waiting for me if the worst came to  the worst." > ...,'.-'  ���������   They trudged along in silence.      "  " "I'm only a'boy." said the'-'iad presently,   "and  you're  a  man,., but .1 ��������� hones tl-"  or more away,  and  Lbove the ' farthest  tree tops a puff of steam 'suddenly arose.  "It must be nagged!" cried-the boy, and  he looked about him 'wildly.  "Here," c shouted, the   stranger   as   he  tore open  the tattered   valise.     "Flaunt  the cardinal's red robe at them.

Something'glittered  in   the-hand  of the  foremost. ' "Halt!" he cried again.  "Run!" shrieked the stranger.     '  The  boy started up the track  at full  speed toward the approaching train, the  red robe flaming out behind him.   ,      .   ���������..

'���������But 'the stroller, with a' despairing  <vglance about him, had caught'tip one of  the spikes 'and suddenly flung it with all  his force at-the desperado. His aim. was  sure. The. flying iron caught the ruffian  squarely on "the side of the head and tumbled him down the embankment to the  ' vei-y bottom. At the instant he 'was  struck the revolver went off, 'but the bullet flew" wild, and the boy'sped on. -The  other desperadoes, ���������'climbing behind their  leader, saw his ,sudden overthrow )and  hesitated. ,���������Then they turned and scrambled down after the bounding form of the-  iujiired "man and disappeared in the  bushes.^ -,   , ', ��������� ! '  The stroller .watched their flight -with ,L  > great satisfaction.    Then he tprned and ' -  looked up the track.    Far ahead he could  \<3ee the boy wildly waving the'red/robe,  and  still 'farther  ahead (was'the- steam  crowned black dot that he' knew kwas the  coming locomotive. ~ Then he' heard  the  'shrill "shriek,'Of the faraway' whistle and  knew that' the engineer had 'seen the signal and-was applying the' brakes.''. In a  moment jthe train'had rushed'<hy the boy,'  but its impetus^w'as rapidly  slackening,,  "and   the  huge  mass'of  glistening   iron,'  groaning  and   panting-,   came to  a  dead  stop a .hundred, yards from the lifted ,rail.  ,   Then the boy came dashing up with hia  hand outstretched. ' "-...,  i   "Have they huit you?" he cried.        r  "I'm all right," said the stroller as he  grasped the lad's hand.    "But, say, my  hoy,  you're  a   plucky- one.     You. never  flinclied when that ruffiah,held the gun on^  you! *, You're good stuff."  And he.grasped-  the boy's hand again. -     -r<   ^   '  "I thought sure he'd nail me," said the  lad.    "What made hi'm miss?" '    '   '  "I tossed him' an inshoot with a railway spike over the ear," said the stroller  grimly. "I guess I haven't.forgotten all.  my boyhood cunning. l He's down there  in,the bushes with a broken head.". , ������������������  "And then the engineer came running up,  followed hy(the conductor and.the train  crew, with a group of passengers1 trailing  in the rear. . j- j _>I - / ' '  The4 trouble, was soon explained, and  everybody insisted on^shaking hands with  the- stroiler and the", boy, although the  former stqutly .declared that the lad..was  the only hero of the affair. And 'the train  hands went down the' embankment and  brought up the-wounded wrecker^ whese  comrades had deserted him and fled. And  the battered ruffian was securely" caged  in the baggage-car, arid when this .was  done everybody stood about again, discussing the incident and praising the boy  and his companion.  And presently one of the passengers, a  tall and dignified gentleman with a little  sprinkling of gray in his close cut mustache, came up behind the stroller and  gently touched him on the shoulder. As  the stroller turned the tall man caught  his hand in a firm grip and drew him a  little way from the crowd. >   ,  "Jim!" he softly said.  "Why. George!"     -  There was a moment's silence as the  two men looked in each other's eyes.''  Then a dull red-surged/across the stroller's face, and he tried to draw away his'  hand.    But the tall man held him fast.  "You're coming home, Jim!" he gently  said.  As the stroller hesitated and half turned away his eyes caught the glance of the  boy, and the boy smiled back at him and  nodded. It seemed like an answer to the  brother''? question.      '  "Yes," said the stroller gently, "I'm  coming home.  "Our mother is waiting for you," said  the tall man as he put his hand affectionately on the stroller's shoulder. And then  they moved a little farther away and  stood hand in hand in earnest conversation And ,whcn the boy looked their way  (���������gain the stroller was beckoning to him.  He came forward, and the tall man took  his hand.,  "My boy," he said, in a grave and kindly way, "my brother here has favorably  impressed me. not only with your courage, but also with your worthy ambition  to rfce in the world.- I mean to belp you  if you' will let me.

' "Thank you, little girl," he cried. "But  even your kindly comment doesn't alter  the one great undeniable fact."  "What was the life you mapped out?"  she asked quietly.  A momentary gleam kindled in his eyes."  "My dreams? Oh, the usual ones of  the young man who does not know that  the thing that has been given him, is not  genius, but only a tiny spark of it. I was  to be a big artist, paint wonderful pictures that would bring me lasting fame  and position. I was to lead a dazzling  hfo, see the world, mix with its masters,  explore its treasures. My hopes one by  one have disappeared, until now you see  me 'as I aiii.' mj' very small private income and the proceeds of selling my pic-  tuies to the dealers just enabling me to  lead a life in a quiet out of the way place  like Penelth."  His eyes rested' for a moment on the  clear roofs of the tiny town; then he turned lound quickly to her with a smile.  "You see, I am reconciled now," he  said. "The months I have spent here  livin? in the house with you and your  atint have been the'best thing in my life.  We've,had a jollv time together, havenlt  wo?"  Joan rose to hoi feet.

"I  must run on now to see about tea���������mind  you are not more than a quarter of an  hour." she added in a laughing tone of  command as she hmried away.

Joan  Htfsketh ,had on Ins death found herself  practically 'penniless...-.'.'.

Looking ahead, he  noticed an open carriage sweep round the  curve/'ahd as-it came nearer.he saw there  whs only one occupant, a lady. Catching  sight'of her face, he gave a start of surprise and came to an abrupt halt. '  " She had seen him. too, and had given  an order to the coachman. The next moment the carriage had drawn up in front  of him, and. with .white face, he was  staring at the woman who so smilingly  held out her hand to him. She was about  80, rcrnarkablv handsome and dressed in  the latest fashion.  "I came down to tell you," she said in a  low voice, "Vansittart has been dead two  years. I am free again, and a wealthy  woman."        u  She was looking straight into his eyes,  ,and he gave a slight start. Uttering (a  soft exclamation, she rose from her seat  and stood by his side. '  ' "Yes. in those old tdays, Austin, you  loved me," ' she cried quickly. "You  thought me heartless, but that wasn't  quite the right word.,, I loved you, but I  knew my temperament. I wasn't born to  be the wife of a struggling man: poverty  would have1 made me miserable: iwe  should both have been extremely unhappy. I did what you know���������married a  rich' man'. Now,, I am free, I come to you  again; it i<=n't too late, Austin���������we are almost young still."  He passed a hand over his forehead. "���������  , "You ' would be willing to marry  me���������  have me,live on your money?" ���������  She laidra hand gently on his shoulder.  "Money is.absolutely of no consequence  to me: that part of the arrangement  would never cross my mind. We may  i not love as we did, yet think what it  would mean. Austin!

The suddenness of  ��������� the thing had sent his brain in a whiil.    ,  ��������� "If not love,' an 'artistic > comradeship,"  she said softly.

' <.,  \ So she talked, and he listened with the  blood throbbing through his veins. , Presently she had to go, and he accompanied  her to the station. Then, when the train  had finally,'vanished from sight,,he turned  and walked down to the seashore. If ,he  consented, he was 'to go up to London,tomorrow, they were to be married and immediately to start for a long tour through  Italy. '     .

"I  must tell aunt."  The next morning he took his departure. Joan had somehow mistaken the  time and was nowhere to be found when  he left the house. With a curious feeling  of depression he made his/4way to the station and took his seat in "an empty third  class compartment. Almost as the train  was on the^point of starting he .saw a  slight figure appear on the platform.,, It  was Joan, and she came breathlessly up  to the carriage.  "Goodby," she faltered, holding out her  haiid to him.  " He reached out and, grasping it, looked  down on the upturned face. The whistle  sounded, and she withdrew her hand  gently.  "I hope you will be happy," she  breathed tremulously. He sawr the gray  eyes fill with tears, and suddenly, as if a  curtain had been swept away from his  brain, he knew.  The train moved slowly from the plat-  foim, and he stood at the window gazing  mutely at her. As the station finally  vanished from sight, he sank down on the  seat, dazed with his discoveiy.  candle falling on a cottage floor was the-  cause0 of the fire that destroyed London.

J.  ft  The  Dilemma  of  a  Lover.  T. BY,E. BECKPORD.  ���������   i i t  +  ��������� +  ,    Framed-in>the oaken porch of the old  'Ankerdine mansion  a girl stood with  a   thick   wrap   across "her   shoulders,  glancing to right and left with a slight  , shiver and hesitating on the threshold.  "You're confoundedly anxious,  mad-  < am," snarled her father's voice behind^  i   her.  "I opine an ardent lover's journey  will not.be accelerated by your tramping about in the cold.'" "  Miss 'Ankerdine made no reply, but.  daintily collecting with one small hand,  a mass of^skirt that would .have puzzled a man'to grasp in two large <ones,  threaded a way around'flower beds and  ��������� bushes to another.part of the garden  ��������� where a former owner had constructed  a small and deep artificial pond, now  skinned thinly' over and reflecting the  " stars like a mirror. It was spanned by  a rustic bridge, fragile and worm bitten.  Prom it on a fine day miles of open  country could be scanned across the  'fields and dingles to where the Solent  smiled, a blue perpendicular'shimmer  against the, duller background of ,the  Wight. The highroad was just' discernible in patches, where no hedge  trammeled its boundary, but .only at  rare intervals before, it plunged into a  dip and disappeared.  Two years away and his ship paid off  today! It would not be many hours before her lover's horse pdundea'aiong its  famous course.1  For'famous it was. Trafalgar was  yet to be fought, and few days closed  without a detachment of soldiers  swinging past, coaches - flashing by  crowded in and out with men whose  trade .was" war, returned marines with  a cargo of prize money and intoxicants  pursuing their jovial way or a successful press gang hurrying to the sea.  Millie Ankerdine's eyes danced as she  leaned over the bridge in an eager aspect of listening.1 There was a quick  tearing, a slight thud, an arrested cry,  and broken fragments of ice and woodwork floated upon the dark water over  her head.  "What the devil's all thisi noise  about?" muttered Mr. Ankerdine testily as an unaccustomed clamor penetrated to his study and attracted him  forth to seek its import.  Before the great hall fire, the once  breezy drapery of a dinner dress oozing  dark pools andf steaming lazily, lay his  daughter. A stranger, rills of moisture  trickling from each fold of his clothing, was chafing her hands and vociferating for assistance. He ceased suddenly as her father appeared, with  servants at his heels, and stood back  beyond the play of the firelight. Mr.  Ankerdine knelt down beside her as  Bhe showed signs of recovery.  "I have to thank you for rescuing my  daughter, I suppose, sir." he said to the  k stranger. "The best kind of gratitude  Is the practical. You must be made  comfortable first, and I can din you  with words after."  The man had no time to answer. A  post chaise dashed up to tho porch with  a groaning of leather and jingling of  harness, a broad shouldered young fellow completely enveloped in a huge  wrap precipitated himself rather than  got out of the vehicle and gripped the  old man by both bands, exclaiming:  "How's the gout, sir? And where is  Millie���������not here to welcome mo?"  "At the bottom of the poud but for  this gentleman," said Mr. Ankerdine.  "I must introduce you when I��������� Hello!"  he gasped in a' species of stupefaction,  for the gallant stranger had slipped out  Into the night,1 and Lieutenant Rigden,  his. daughter's prospective husband,  had started in pursuit.  The first man, stimulated by the slow  diffusion of warmth as his limbs  coursed with blood again, bold his own  at first, but was soon captured.  "You must come back with me, M. de  Frontignac," said the young sailor. "It  is the fortune of war."  "Again the fortune of war?", replied  the Frenchman. "A cold fortune, at  present, mon ami." He fell into step  beside his companion without resistance.  "Millie has asked for you," Mr. Ankerdine observed dryly as the pair  reached the house. "She appeared surprised that you should prefer scouring  ihe country at midnight to greeting ber.  However, each to his taste."

But to most of the travelers it was a novel experience, and they'  looked on it as only the beginning of days  of sightseeing in the land of the'Monte-  zutnas.    , . , '  There were two' passengers in one of.  the sleepers, who attracted some attention. , One was ar woman of 60, tall and  straight, with a1 carriage like a queen  and wboseemedas young and gayas the  youngest.*' The other called her '.'mother"  andNvas-about 25, a beautiful girl. Their  son andT-brother had come to the. station  to bid them goodby, a man of SO, well  groomed and well' made, the typical  American man of that age. ��������� .  He had provided them with eVerything  that his affection could suggest-and told  them to be sure to Jet him know day by  day where they were and if they were  well.  "And yon will look after mother, Alice,  won't you?"   ���������  As he spoke two young ladies turned  and looked at him���������his sister and a  'younger ,woman, about 22. She turned  involuntarily, and the pretty ��������� blush that  covered her cheek showed that her name  was Alice too.  Robert Duncan glanced at her and wag  struck with her beauty. But she saw his  look and turned away and busied herself,  with her baggage. His mother and sister  both noticed the coincidence also and  smiled.  "So we will have two Alices along,"  said his mother. "I hope we -diall become  acquainted with the young lady. She  looks very pleasant and very nice."  Just then the porter shouted "All  aboard," and Robert jumped from the  train. As the car passed him he looked  in vain for the faces of his mother and  sister. But he did see the face of tho  nther Alice looking at him with some curiosity.  Then he returned to his'office. He was  the junior partner in a prominent law  firm in Boston and had a hard afternoon  uf work before him. There was1 a brief  in a ease that had puzzled both himself  nivl his partner. But try as he would to  concentrate his niind on his work, he  could see nothinc but the beautiful face  rvt the car windc v and hear nothing but  the droning of the car wheels.  At last he became so nervous that ho  thtew clown his pen, and, tollinir the hoy  hi- would not be hack till morning, he  walked up across the Common and the  Public'garden to bis home.  ��������� The evening at the theater did not help  liim, and he was rather horror struck to  find, himself no better in the morning.  This was a new experience for him. No  woman had ever before come between  him ond his work. This was silly. He  never saw the girl before, and he never  would see her again, of course. He must  !.\ive dyspepsia.      ,  So, on his way to his office, he made a  call ou his old college chum, now a promising young physician. He did not tell  the'doetor What the most prominent symp-  t.on was. but was sure be needed medicine  fiir dyspepsia. Accordingly he felt rather  foolish when he was obliged to say no to  all the doctor's questions as to whether  he had certain , symptoms inseparable  ?rom gastric trouble.  The doctor laughed and gave him some  harmless*, powder and he went to the office string in his resolve to finish the  brief. He made fairly good headway,  but 'still, the image of the beautiful girl  would come back to him, and, as the day  wore en, more distinctly. Late in the afternoon he got a telegram saying the party  was at Chicago and signed "Alice." And  that started it all over agai������.     ,(.,;  Th'.-'n he became alarmed and. fearpd^his  mind was going, for he was not:aybeliever in "love at first sight.", or-handler  in the grand passion Uself. ��������� ,������������������ ,;::(���������>.  Then he found hi nisei f with "an 'amidst  resistless longing to take the first train  and  follow his  folks.    Of course he did  not admit to himself that he wanted to  pee the other Alice.  , That afternoon ,one of the firm's, best  cheats came in. He said he contemplated  put chasing some thousand acres in Mexico with the idea of establishing a coffee  plantation   there.     He  was ��������� not satisfied  '\vhh the title to the land and felt that  some one ought to go down there and look  into the matter more closely. He could  not spare the time yand came to them,  thinking   that'  possibly    some   of    their  'young men might have enough knowledge  of Spanishi;.to make'the trip.  Robert Duncan regarded him as an an-  ;el and ������aid  that as the office was not  'fcry busy just then he thought he should  like to make the trip himself.    This was  hotter than the client expected, and the  , matter was soon fixed up.     ' '-  "Perhaps you will meet your folks  down there." said the senior partner.  "Why. perhaps I- will," said Duncan,  as if he had just thought of it. But; he  told his partner that it' was hardly prob-  .able, as he was going down on the lower  tablelands near the coast and the excursions usually kept pretty well upon the  high-plateaus.  That, night before he started he got a  letter from his mother, and, in it she said,  "Alice Chambers is lovely, and we enjoy  her so much."'   So that was her name���������  ' Chambers. ,   '  The- nevt morning he started, Hi������  journey was a tiresome oneC and after  Mweral days spent on the train he found  himself .one glorious afternoon'climbing  fi. little mountain path on  the back of a  ,hur:-o. Duncan had told his folks by  %virt������ of his intended  trip  and  found  by  loosing over'their itinerary that they bad  passed quite near where he now was.  'He had'oleft the train at adittle town'  .through, which . they .passed  some 'daya  tprevious and' was making his, way int������,  the ^country  to* 'interview'.' an old... India*  whom he expected'to find the next morn-,  < ing.   .The title to Mexican lands often defends   on'information   .only   obtainable  , from the kindly Indian.;/     \ '   "<  0 That night^he slept on his blanket under the,stars:,and early the next morning'  was pushing ' on, the path growing' .still  wilder and more,beautiful.' At last, about  0 o'clock; he came over the spur of the  mountain, and looked down on a lovely  valley. His guide and interpreter told  him that in 'the little village which he  could see was the old Indian.  About noon they arrived. The matter  of the title was soon fixed up and arrange-'  ments^were made to leave the next morning on the return trip; but .that evening  'something .happened that altered his  plans. ,'.,_.'  xuA small party,of the villagers who had,!  been .up in the mountains, cutting wood  had found a burro wandering'alone. They  did not .recognize it as one-of the village,  burros.. It1"had a ;sidesaddle on it. and  tucked under Cne of the straps was a .little glove. They knew that a young  American or European woman must hav������  ridden ��������� the,burro, and they began a hunt-  to find. her.  - Some miles ba������.k they found her unconscious " by the road,1- and, putting, her  on the burro/ which they had ;led back,  they' brought her into camp. As they  brought her up Duncan walked up the  little village street to see what the matter  was. ' He was astounded to see Aljce  Chambers on the back of the little mule.  She was still unconscious. One of the  old women of the village took her into  the little open shelter and in a very few  moments she revived and, opening her  eyes, smiled a wan smile. When her eye  caught that of Duncan, she started, and  he stepped up and said:  "I am Robert Duncan, Miss Chambers,  and my mother and sister have been traveling with you. I am here on business,  and will be happy to help you in any way  possible. When you are stronger, we  shall b" glad to hear your story."  She ' egained her vigor quickly under  the ministrations of the old Indian woman and soon told them that she had started out with a party from the little town  on the railroad to make an excursion to  some famous caves. In some way she  had become separated from the other*  and had tried to find her way back. Sh������  became confused, and, meeting several natives, they had tried to understand each  other, with the result that she became  more and more at sea.  She had eaten only what some kindly  Indians had given her. At last she went  so long without food that she felt a faint-  ness coming over her, and she knew no  more till she woke and found herself ia  the little village.  In a few days she was strong enough  to travel, and. Duncan made himself a  demigod in the village by leaving a ������uui  of money that to the Indians was fabulous. They calculated that the excursion  party must be at the City of Mexico, and  when they reached the railroad they telegraphed the party^ An answer came  back which they got at a station farther  on.    It said. "Thank God. she is found."  They were met at the station by an enthusiastic crowd made up of the excursion party, the American minister and a  great mob of Mexicans, who cheered the  couple to the' echo. In some way tho  story had got into the papers.  Duncan decided to stay for some.days  and telegraphed his partner to that effect,  who wired back congratulations.  One afternoon Duncan asked Alice if  she would drive with him to the grove of  Chapultepec. They dismissed the coach*-  man at the. entrance and told him they  would meet him there in a couple of  hours- Then they wandered through that  majestic grove, where' 'it is always twilight even at midday. They had been  talking over their., strange experience.  "Alice," said. Duncan, "you of course  know that everybody thinks you are my  sweetheart and "were before we left  home?" ������������������'���������'.  She blushed and owned that she had  heard something to that effect.  "Well," said he, "why not make it true?  Alice, I have loved you from the first day  I saw you in the train in Boston."  She looked up at him and said archly:  /(���������Well, Robert, it was quite mutual, I assure you. Oh, there are some people coming.    You mustn't."  From which I infer that he understood  her to say "Yes." .  HIS  IDEAL TOM.  A Good Male Turkey as Describe* l>y-  an Kiperienced 'Breeder.   t   ''  Some writers say that to mate Bronze-  turkeys you have only to "discard all  specimens  disqualified  by  the  stand-  ' ard."    After 13 years spent in "breed-     \  iug these birds 1 tnust'sayvl disagree-    '  with "them,  for I  have found the se-   v  lection of the, largest specimens and in.- , (  breeding them to certain extent will  increase the size instead of decreasimg' '  it, but when carried too far inbreeding   "  will  impair''the'vitality  and���������-produce' '-  deformities.     Therefore,   to .properly  _���������  mate these birds is,-1 claim,,as muchof -  a problem as mating any of the stand-,  ard breeds of fowl.

The liit-rKr 1  ter is. my preference and-what' I'think j  ,is.called for in the standard,,although"  plenty of Judges favor the,blaek bronze"  color.

The -black ,bai  near  the  end   of   the  tail ..cbverts  (I'l  mean the row of feathers lyVng~'farthestl  .out on tail proper) are generally missing,  and the  two  center "feathers of]  'the tail proper always have"the white  tip. the black bar and the brown barring more or less  mixed.    1 have no-J  ticed the latter peculiarity in tke'-wildl  partridge!

This   is   another - serious  fault. Some breeders are satisfied witb|  a tail which is all speckled with blact  and brown so long as it has the blacl  baud   near  the  tip  and  a  white  tip.l  Now I am satisfied that a feather reg-j  ularly  barred  with brown- and  blackj|  with  the  broad  black   band  and dull  white or gray tip. is the proper color|  Fig. 3 is as,good in color of tail as,  have seen.  1 do not refer to all the shape or col  or soctious,   but ouly  to those  whic!  are usually faulty or in dispute.

We notice that the periodical  nowl against the crows has again  been raised in Vancouver, and the  principal reason now urged against  the birds is that they "eat eggs."  We have in former articles pointed  out that'crows, like all others", of  the.corvidae, are prone, in isolated  cases, to fall from grace ai-d indulge in bad habits, just as some  men will become thieves or opium  fiends, but all crows, like all men,  may not necessarily be bad, or  merit the gibbet becaute of the misdemeanors of these few, and we say  to - those uninformed individuals  Who will ory "bang   him,"   to   re-  d^nJU^oA it r  ^fiC /t/lttt/  become thoroughly-convinced a,s to  the nature of the bulk of food consumed by the despised crow! This  can only be done by dissecting and  examining the stomachsof many individuals. The number of injurious  insects and amount of garbage found  as against the amount of "egg"  matter, will surprise some of the  ''down with them" gentry. Of  course, there is no doubt that if  these birds get too plentiful in,/ a  neighborhood a judicious thinning  out-uill be beneficial. -Any bird  may become a nuisance if allowed  to increase abnormally,>,but if these  crows are exterminated, Vancouver  looses her, best, insect destroyers,  and undoes, at one act, one of the  'wisest pieces of legislation the ever  enacted.     , '    *'    ' '  A   SAD   MISTAKE.  Through  Unfortunate Error One of  the St. Joseph's Night Nurses  Met Death Yesterday.  , "-n  We regret having to chronicle the  death of  Miss   Amos   formerly   a  nurse in the Cumberland hospital'  and a niece ot Mr T.1 Cairn's of Co*,  mox, which occurred at St. Joseph'sc  hospital, Victoria, oh the 11th Aug..  On'.receipt of the sad1 news Mr  '.CairWleft. "immediately for s Vic-  ,toria. . .  ' A very regrettable mistake or-  curred at St. Joseph's hospital yesterday through which one of .tho  tiained nurses. Miss Amos, met her  death. L .-  Yesterday morning she was feeling unwell and decided to try calo--  mel for relief. Through an unfortunate mistake she obtained morphine instead and had taken it before the error was detected. Immediately the effect of the poison  apserted iteelf and the discovery  was made that morphine had been  taken. Dr O. M. Jones was summoned and subsequeutly Drs. F  Hall and Hart were called in.  Every means known to medical  science for cases of this ,sort were  resorted to but without avail, and  despite the persistent battle put up  by the trio of medical men, the patient giew gradually worse, expiring about midnight last night.  The coroner and police were notified and the iuquest will be held  tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock at  the police court.  The nurse whose career was sadly  terminated under such deplorable  circumstances was on the night  staff. She was a native of Scotland, and had been in the hospital  several years. She was about 30  years oi age.  In an institution where the greatest precaution is taken with regard  to the dispensing of drugs,' this  fatal occurrence is particularly  painful, and casts a gloorn. over the  entire place, where the late nurse  was highly esteemed.  iShe was a splendid/ nurse, resourceful, patien.t, arid  considerate,  held by her sister nurses was shared  by patients and members of the  profession with whom she came in  contact.   r , ,  ' -    <  The/mistake' is   one   which   is  quite understood by those qualified  to speak authoratively, as calomel  in powder is understood to   bear . a  strong resemblance to the fatal drug  which ended Miss AinosMife.'  She is said to have ' taken   five  7 t  grains, less than a fifth   of   which  would have been an ordinary ^mor-  ' '        '< ,-' -       ,   '  phihe dose.

The sisters, doctors and Miss Lena Amos,  a sister of the deceased, said that  the unfortunate young woman had  no troubles, that she was of a jovial  disposition, and Dr. Hart, the coroner, who was per-onally acquainted with her. spoke in the highest  terms of her. She had been at the  hospital for two years; and was reliable and considered one of the  best nurses in the institution. Antidotes were administered as soon  as the mistake was discouered, and  Dr. Jones was called, and arrived  very shortly afterwards. He was  later joined by Drs. F. Hall and  Hart, and every effort was made to  save the life of the nurpe, the doctors working on her until late Sunday night, when she passed away.���������  Colonist.
