It  pays editors, reporters, correspondents,  pointers, pressmen, paper makers, ink-  , makers, landlord, coal dealers, gas-  makers, etc., more than Its subscribers  pay it. It expects to cover Its expenses  partly by selling its advertising space.  If any persons,want to use the publicity that the paper has for sale and  ou which it depends in a measure for  it's living, subscribers or not subscribers, justice and business principles require them to pay for It.

"    In his fury  Bert' Moore called  the
.wrath of tieaven down upon the Boa-
consville'    Dramatic    society,    which
1 alone, .seemed    responsible    for ' the
'misery which had overtaken him. and
when he had exhausted^his supply of
i anathemas  he' buried his face in  his
< ,     i . a
hands and reviewed the "whole wretched .business. ' ' *" '
'Bess Ainswortb and he had been engaged for a 'year when the, Dramatic,
', society was' formed.' and the pretty little cottage which was to be their home
was almost paid for. when "Lorna; or.
Alone In New York," was produced at
the, Beaconsville Opera  House before
"a   -large.'   cultured   and   appreciative
"audience," as The Weekly Clarion described it.   Bess' vivacity ,and nielodi-
���'���ous-voice,'together'with a faint* trace
,of natural dramatic ability,'had' fairly
: captured' the    house. u Again   quoting
Tbe Weekly Clarion: "The role of Lor"
had an opening in view for her. holding off the truth until the 10th. when
he laid the proposition before her. Of
course, if she were going on the stage
she must do it in tho most romantic,
fashion. She should run away, and
the papers would ring with her story.
It was the only way. .       c
They   left   the1 next , morning.   Bes��
sobbing and laughing together at 'the
(last moment on her, aunt's shoulder
and leaving a hysterical message, for
Bert.' W'hen she'wns'famous. he should
/come to her in New York���Paris perhaps���and they would be married and
live happy ever after.   Bert listened to'
the message grimly, said some bitter
things to the now thoroughly 'frightened-aunt and stormed back to his stuffy
shop.,  ' '      '    ���'' V   ti   ' "'
Of one thing he was convinced���Bess
cared nothing for the crafty Burnside.
And with Burnside it wras Bess and
her' money as"a bait for the manager.
Bert knew this somehow, (though ' he
had-never seen a line ,of the correspondence between .Burnside and the
manager. His little sweetheart's head
was turned, but her heart was loyal to
hha.        ' '  r    * ,'
And, having thus' settled the question
in" his'own mind, Bert was quick to
act. Trains to Morgan? Just one a
day, and the. runaways had boarded-
that. Livery rig? A fierce storm had
arisen, the" first of >the, year; and the
phlegmatic proprietor ol^ the- Palace
stables, refused to "rent' a, team. Good
horseflesh .was' not'to be risked in the
, face of .such. a> storm v   .'    '   -
Bert was!, desperate.   He rushed ' up
.the street, and,the,keen wind from the
east struck.him full in the face.   With,
it came an idea���he would skate up the,

.'    The sensation produced by his sweetheart filled .Bert's mind  with uneasiness a nd^stifled his-pride in her accomplishments.   It filled' the niind^ of T.
'    Ha'worth  Burnside witli'new schemes
' and ambitions.'
T,  Hawortb  Burnside's "card in the
dramatic   papers  announced   that   he
was "at. liberty."   They  did  not add
that the company with which he had
��� opened   the   season- had   stranded   at
s Morgan, the county seat, twenty miles
from Beaconsville.   Those of its members  "who   had   the   fare   to   Chicago
counted' themselves blessed and started   at   once   for  the   midwest   haven.
Those who lacked tbe price. Burnside
among them, fell back'upon their wits
vand wrote to their nearest friends for
assistance.       '- '
It was just at this time that tk��
Beaconsville Dramatic society had determined s to produce' "Lorna." Burnside, with -well^ feigned reluctance,
agreed^to postpone his engagement
with a Chicago stock company to
coach tho amateur Thespians of Beaconsville. This would pay his board
a few weeks, and then perhaps something better might turn up.
The inspiration came with Bess
Ainsworth's success. He again.postponed his start for Chicago und cultivated the acquaintance of his "star"
aud her unsophisticated aunt. He
fascinated them with his experiences
on the road and his acquaintance with
great men and women of his profession and kept Bess well supplied with
dramatic publications* He coached her
so assiduously that she had no time for
walks through the autumn woods with
Bert or for long talks in the front
room, with its embroidered tidies a nd
wax fruit. She lost Interest in the
pile of household linen which had
been slowly gathering for a year, and
when Bert talked about the little cottage she replied with quotations from
In the meantime Burnside had written to the manager of a repertory
company headed toward Morgan as
If you can make room In your company
for a good lightycomedian.and an ingenue,
I can fill the bill for you. You know me.
The girl is a darned pretty amateur, a
bit gawky, but Is Improving under coaching, and she's got a tidy bit of money,
\vhich would come In handy if we struck
hard lines up in Wisconsin. Let me hear
from you.
And from the manager came this:
Never mind if she is a bit gawky if she
has the dough. Grey has been playing-,
light comedies for me, but as he's been
hitting the pipe again I'll give him two
weeks' notice, and you and the girl join
us at Morgan. We play there one nighti
the 17th. I
Burnside naturally did not read the
letter to  Bess.     He told  her that.he

"I wantrto seo her right away."

of the men say that Burnside had
found another easy mark. Now, what
did he mean by that?"
"I'm sure I can't/imagine." answered Bert, with well assumed innocence,

the most casual way whether she bad
given Burnside her money to take care
"Oh, no!" she replied. "Aunt told
me to be sure to sew it in my underskirt pocket. I just lent him enough

A historian has it that as early as
four centuries before Christ metal mir-
lors were in such common use among
the Romans that any maidservant
could have as many "as she could hang
at her girdle, which probably accounts
Tor the fact that they gradually fell
Into desuetude among ladies of the
higher classes and led to the introduction of substitutes. It is hardly to be
supposed, however, that it was this
fact which induced some Ingenious per-
eoh so to cut and burnish the inside of
drinking cups as to reflect the face of
the drinker many times in a highly
warning manner.
Iu -.-'addition to the small hand mirrors which it used to be the - particular duty of some unfortunate young
slave to hold before her mistress, there
were panels of stone set in the walls
and so highly polished as to serve as
.mirrors. It was this use. of dark
stone that/ifirst suggested the use of
glass for reflecting. purposes, which,
according to Pliny, was first manufactured at the glass works of a gentleman named Sidon. Black glass was
first used;.afterward clear glass with
black foil on the back replaced it.
Pliny tells us ali about this, and from
this time oh no mention is made of
glass mirrors until the thirteenth century, when a Franciscan monk, Johannes Peckham. speaks of mirrors,

she  saw  that  an   intruder   had   been?
there.    She remembered that she had
one egg,and no more, and there before
her were two.   What was to be done?
She consulted with her mate, and tinal-

They built a bridge of straw and hair
directly over the two eggs, making a
second   story   in   the   home  and   thus-
leaving the two eggs below out of the-
reach of the warmth of her body.    In.
the upper apartment she laid four eggs

with the two eggs still in it, and preserved as a curiosity.

raw or cooked, will neutralize any excess of chalky matter engendered by
eating too much meat. It it also the
fact that such fresh fruits as the apple,,
the pear and tlie plum, when taken
ripe and without sugar, diminish acid-,
ity in the stomach rather than provoke
it Their vegetable sauces and juices
are converted into alkaline carbonates,

"Give me your name and address."  he said, "and I will call tomorrow and  look at it. 1 will tell you then what 1  can do." Uis eyes held a smile that  was not amusement or contempt, but a  combination of incredulity and joy  that made the undei-clerk wonder.  The next afternoon lie  flights of stairs and was  the room with the rug.  Its flaunting colors, the glaring ���������ohro-  mos, the table with the installment  plan album, the few . wooden ���������. chairs  and the old cane rocker, even the one  little scarlet geranium, were noted in  a. single glance. But he looked at the  old woman's face long and steadily. It  was such a battered old face, as though  time, sorrow and privation had fought  out their desperate battle there and  left each time traces to tell the tale.  "It's a party rug," was what she  said.  "You don't want to give up the rug.  Why do you do so?"  She'clutched'nervously at her apron  and shrank within herself before the  man who seemed to fill the room with  his dominant, forceful personality. He  was so strong, young, wrell groomed,  that'she felt suddenly old, weak and  helpless before him.

A woman stood, beside him, and as  his-eyes scanned her quickly he smiled  involuntarily.  She was, not shabbily genteel, but  shabbily grotesque., The skimpy cape,  the threadbare waist, the beflowere'd  bonnet and. ill hanging skirt were of all  colors and materials: They were alike  bury in cleanliness.    .  She. raised her sharp brown eyes,  hesitated and smiled a little tremu-  Iously, showing gums entirely devoid  of teeth. < Then straightening herself  up she said slowly:  "I've come to see if you'd take a rug  back."        ...   "    .  "What is the matter with the rus?"  "Nothin', only I don't want it."  "How long have you had it? A couple  of days, I suppose," ironically.  "No, I've had it purty near two  month." "  "But you have not used It. of course."  "Well, it's boen ou the floor all the  time, but I only set there when I have  company, an' I don't have company  very often," this a' little apologetically.  "It's a purty rug an' I like it, hut 1  want to send it back."  "Why did you buy it, if you didn't  want it?" he asked bluntly.  "I  do want it,  but���������but I've got to  have some money an' I can't get it unless I can send the rug back."  "How much was it?"    ' '  " 'Leven dollars an' forty cents," she  answered dejectedly.  "Are you sure there is nothing wrong  with the rug?" he asked in an insinuating voice. "If it is crooked or off color  or not as represented, I may be able  to do something for you."  "No," emphatically, but sorrowfully,  "there  aiu't   nothin'   wrong   with   the  "Excuse me." he said kindly., "I had  no thoughts of prying into your business. I only want to help you out of  tliis if I can."        /  "I know. I know." she s-iid quickly,  "an' you're good���������good.

You don't know  what this means to me," breaking into  helpless sobs, "for���������for I want to look  as good as lean for John."  That evening a girl with clear brown  eyes sat with hands folded listlessly in  her lap, her lips in wistful curve.' Suddenly she started, a flush came to her  cheeks, a'warm light to her eye's. With  a cry of joy she sprang to her feet and  held out her hands to him.

Telephone 7SC-A^  As she finished reading seventeen  voices simultaneously exclaimed "Jim!"  and the pug, now comfortably ensconced on the ruffle of Kathleen's  gown, uncurled himself, licked his  chops suggestively and wheezed asth-  matically.  Dangler shot a triumphant Jook at  Seward and reaiarked:  "I tell you what. Miss Kathleen���������I'll  telephone old Marsden right after dinner, and when he comes after the pup  you claim the reward. Marsden's rich.  and It ought to be worth a couple  pounds'of'candy anyhow."  Half an hour later Dangler returned  from the telephone booth in triumph.  Most of .the boarders,were either in, the  parlor or "chatting in the dim entry'.  "Say, folks, maybe you think the old  gentleman wasn't tickled! Said he  couldn't come_ down tonight and  wouldn't trust one of the servants, so  would we keep Jim till tomorrow morning. He'll surely be here by 10. And,  by the way. Miss Kathleen, he says  the pup's getting old. and if he doesn't  have a pillow to sleep on he'll���������he'll  snore. And he can't eat meat unless  it's cut very tine."  Kathleen, with visions of candy-  dancing before her pretty eyes, carried Jim off to the kitchen and personally prepared a delectable supper for  the weary canine, after which the antidote for snoring was speedily produced.  That was Saturday night. It was  remarkable how prompt the boarders  all were for Sunday morning breakfast. Seward, who seldom/appeared  until noon, was first at the table, calm,  cool and pale, in a satin quilted smoking jacket. Miss Ainsley, the lady reporter, who worked until a heathenish  hour each1" Saturday night, was next.  In fact, every one seemed on tiptoe  with curiosity, though Jim and Jthe  reward were never mentioned during  the'breakfast hour.  It was singular, too. how the boarders, who usually spent Sunday morning in their rooms, lingered in the parlor. Seward, holding the morning" paper at a most peculiar angle, held the  point of. vantage in the bay window.  The little woman who went in for settlement work clasped her prayer-book  nervously and;wondered if "he" would  come before time for her to start for  church. Dangler got"no further in his  preparations for his usual morning  spin awheel than to don his snowy  white sweater with glowing crimson  bands.

The conclusion  was ob- -  .vious.    The owner of Jim had realized  his base ingratitude and had repented  to  the   tune  of. a-  handsome   remembrance.  Dangler was distressingly late, and  many of the boarders were toying with  their coffee when he arrived. The demand, that he open the. package was  unanimous. Blushingly he consented.-  The strings were snipped, the 'paper  fell back arid before the astonished  -eyes of-the boarders rose a dog's muzzle ^and a certain wire contrivance indispensable to that federal" officeholder  known as a dog catcher.      i  The boarders individually and collectively stood \villing to wager that  Seward had perpetrated this unfeeling  joke. But the sphinxlike countenance  above the Immaculate cream colored ^  four-in-hand was neither paler nor '  more flushed than usual.  Sympathy unuttered, but nevertheless strong, was felt for the unfortunate Dangler.  But. after all. perhaps it was misplaced. Women, especially in affairs-  of the heart, view events from a peculiar and unexpected standpoint. The  landlady announced Kathleen's engagement to Dangler two Sundays later at  dinner. The champagne which followed the announcement was generally supposed to be the outward and visible sign of tbe exuberant happiness of  Dangler, and no on������ marred the occasion by unfeeling reminiscences.
