A number ,j,;f gentlemen, business  men of Cumberland, and Colliery  officials, met in- the comfortable  dining  room   of  the   Cumberland  Hotel on Friday evening amd partook of a recherche' dinner, in celebration of the advent of the 20th  century. The pleasant function  began and passed off in a most  gratifying manner, nothing happening to mar the hail fellowship  which prevailed throughout. True,  'there were a few vacant seats, but  this was no doubt owing to the  affair|having been postponed and  the final date not having been sufficiently welladverti.-.-d.  The   tables     were   arranged   in  form of a T, and    were   beautifully  decorated.    Mr. lames  Abrams, as  chairman, taking-the head or   centre of the upper arm.    Mr. E. Barret, to whom is due  the credit   for  bringing the   affair   about,   seated  opposite.    Mr. J.   Mathews,   man  ager of the Colliery Co. and Mr. T.  E. Bate, of  Simon Leiser's,   taking  the ends.    That a.friendly  gathering of the kind   i.s   beneficial, may  b* known from the fact that  many  are   desirous   that   certain   social  function   of th������ sort  will   be   held  periodically.    That it    wad   interesting was proved by   the   reply to  the Colliery (oast by Mr. Matthews-  w io, among many   remarks   of  a  k'ndly nature,   gave   much   information on the bright  prospects  ot  the Colliery, when speaking of the  body of fine coal of apparently immense extent, lately' tapped from  No. 4 slope and No. 5 shaft.

Fjite of tlie Confederate Seal.  "The result of the last Confederate  council of war held at Abbeville. S,  C7, in May, 1865, was soon known all  over Abbeville, and tbe generals and  the secretary of war wore kept busy for  Wlien Kot In Service Thoy .Were  Chained, and duly Their iZasiers  Covin Fead or Tonch Theni���������The  St-rnin  IrfrobaMy Extinct Sow.  ��������� ' It was recently reported that an official of another state was entertained on  a visi*--to a convict camp by a man hunt,  ���������with bloodhounds, -the man being given  an hour's start and plenty of time to  climb a tree. Such exhibitions are not  ,. rare on 'the South Carolina state farms  ���������where bloodhounds are kept. The same  kind of -animals are kept by the sheriffs  of many counties in this state, and they  always do well on such show occasions,  'but have never been known to run down  a criminal.  ''���������I very much doubt," said an old slave  owner, "whether there is a genuine blood-  , hound in the south or one with the 'nose'  of the old runaway slave catcher in the  country: Any breed of dogs lhat run by  scent can be trained from puppies to run  man and' man alone:., Ordinary deer or  'foxhounds take, to this quite naturally,  and if crossed with a half or quarter fox  terrier they become vicious and persistent in the chase. But these are not  bloodhounds, nor should,, those now,owned by the state or. counties iu South Car-  ��������� olina be so classed.  '��������� "The bloodhound in his perfection of  . "nose' and his ferocity was the product  of the institution of slavery. The linest  strains-came from Cuba, large, powerful  beasts, tawny or black, with white points  and so fierce that when not in service  thov were chained, and only their master  could feed them or touch them.- 'If they  escaped, they chased the first person they  saw. and their desire was to eat his flesh.  "Many of the dogs were imported to  the south- by the men who 'made their  . living catching runaway slaves. They  were'crossed on the deerhound, and the  product was a good ninn hunter, fierce  enough, but not so dangerous-as the Cuban.     Several  packs of such  dogs  were  ��������� owned in this state, and their presence in  a county kept many a slave at home who  would have otherwise sought the shelter  '   of the forest,'where." unless followed  by  . such hounds, he could live for years, paying weekly or monthly visits to the negro  '   settlements.   -  "The alleged bloodhounds of this day  cannot run a man if the trail is over  three hours old, if it goes in water or is,  crossed bv other trails. The slave catcher's' hounds, bred for their cold nose for  "' -more than a cehtijrv, could 'carry a trail'  3l> hours old. ' Ine common definition  that used to be given for the name of this  species of dog was that if a drop of blood  fell on tho track he would never leave it..  They were like wolves, in that they hunted for meat and were eager .to devour a  man run to a 'tree or cornered. There  are many authentic stories showing their  remarkable qualities of-scent and sagac-  , ity. It was practically impossible to  Ladle an old dog, and when his nose was  once put by his master in tlie footprints  of a man the particular scent of that person was the only ono he would .entertain  in his nostrils, and that track he would  pick out of 100. Ordinary hounds of  chase are puzzled' when the quarry takes  to a running stream and goes up or down.  The man hunter, acute and wise as a  man, would systematically hunt tho  banks up and down for miles until tho  trail was recovered.  "There is a case of particular note on  record in this state where the services of  a professional slave catcher were called  in to catch a murderer. The crime had  been committed more than 24 hours when  the boss of the pack arrived with his  dogs upon the scene of the murder. One  naked footprint was found retreating  from the spot, and into this the muzzle  of the prize trailer of the pack was pressed, and she was given the word to go, the  ���������   other dogs being hold in reserve.  "Miles through swamps, across ponds of  water and into the woods the dog trailed,  finally coming out on a cultivated plantation, her nose close to the 'ground and occasionally giving utterance to the^fierce  but musical long drawn 'bau' that carried terror always to the hearts of the  runaway. Into the street of the negro  village went tlie dog, carrying the trail  where it had been 'crossed by dozens of  men, women and children, and then into  a house. Here she made a.circle of the  room, came out of the same door, trailed  - to another house, scratched at the barred  door and .when'it was opened caught the  murderer under the bed. He belonged to  another plantation and had come there  for shelter and protection and had used  every device to throw off pursuit.  "It was, of course, important and necessary that the owner of such a pack of  dngs should be responsible and vigilant.  He had to be a fine horseman ancl ride  horses that could go almost anywhere,  for he must be up to the leading dog  when the slave was brought to bay. If  the fugitive was too hard pressed to  climb a tree, or, as they sometimes did,  attempted to shoot the dogs, he would be  torn to pieces if the master was not  promptly on hand. Laws governing the  abuse of slaves were strict and enforced.  The most noted case of their violation  is ono of the best known criminal cases  in our law books, although it' occurred  years ago. A captured slave had incurred  the enmity of'the hunters, and; he was  killed and his flesh fed to the dogs. The  two whites implicated were tried, convicted and hanged at Walterboro, the  militia of Charleston being marched (!0  miles to prevent their rescue by friends  on the day of execution.  "With the passing of slavery the necessity for cold nosed man chasers no longer  exists and the breed, at least in this part  of the country, is no longer preserved."  iionrs signing honorable discharge-* "for  the tired soldiers, who' immediately applied for them." writes Mrs. Thaddeus  n.-irr.'in. in The Ladies' Home Journal.  "During the evening Mr. Benjamin asked for a hatchet, and with it he defaced  the Confederate seal.- About 12 o'clock  the same night the Confederate party  continued its retreat in the 'direction of  Washington. On., and while crossing-the  Savannah river in the darkness some one  suggested that the seal be thrown overboard. This idea' was at once approved,  and when the boat reached midst ream it  ..was dropped with a^dull splash into the  sandy river bed of that beautiful southern watercourse, where to this day, its  -..ission all fulfilled, it serenely rests."

"You're not  capable .of the task, my boy. It's a  tremendous one."  Landor smiled with pule lips, but the  smile was winning. "You should have  more confidence in my father's son,"  he protested gently.  The words warmed the old man's  heart like wine. His eyes blinked up  at his boy.

Ancl there was a new elasticity in the  gait of the commercial magnate as he  took his son's arm and went down to  his carriage.

It is  a simple matter to inclose the ticket  with a letter directed to the general  passenger agent asking him to refund  the money paid and explaining the reason why the ticket is left unused in the  hands of the purchaser. It is courteous to inclose a stamped envelope in  which the money may be returned.  When all these things have been  done, the company generally acknowledges the receipt of tfie ticket holder's  communication and promises to investigate the matter.

A BIT  OF OLD ENGLAND.  Tintern  Abbey rurchaseil   by   the  ..-"rills'-.  Government.  A genuine bit of old England has  just been .secured by the Government  as a heritage for the people, says the  Loudon Daily Mail. r.lhis consists  of the 'uag'ni licetit ruins of Tin tern  Abbey, together with several thousand acres of land adjoining in the  beautiful valiey of the Wye, all of  which have been purchased front the  ID tike of- licaMort, and will be maintained  for  the enjoyment  of visitors.  An aroma of antiquity pervades  the place. The abbey was founded  by Walter de Clare in those merry-  monkish days when monastic visions  ware wont to have a solid substratum of "'fat pullets and clouted  cream."  The abbey is famous for its architectural character, which belongs to  a  transition   between  the Early  Eng- I  iisn and .Decorated periods. The  church,-begun jn. 1287, remains nearly complete, witli the exception oi  the northern arqadc of the nave.  To enter the church is like taking  a step straight into the thirteenth-  century'. One expects to be sur-  Younded with fatted friars ancLpious  pilgrims, and to see great visions, of  wallets mid wassail.

She was under a doctor's care  for' a long time, and although she. recovered sufficiently to go about, -the  -after, effects1 of the fever left her very-  weak, and the doctor did not seem,  able to put any life' into her'. She  had frequent headaches, was veryo  pale', and the least exertion 'would  .greatly fatigue her. We thought a  change might' do her good and consequently she "went oii a visit] to'Toronto. While there she was advised to'  try Dr/ Williams' Pink Pills and at  bnce purchased a supply. Before" she  had finished the second box she-noted  a marked change for the better, her  appetite improved', her color returned, the feeling of exhaustion had disappeared, and" by the time.she had  taken half a-dozen boxes she was. enjoying the best of health, and all her  old-time vigor had returned. Although her work ,in . the Salvation  Army is hard, and exposes her to all  kinds of weather;-, she has since been  able to do-it without the'least inconvenience.  "Some time, after my daughter's  cure I found myself completely run  down, and to add to my'trouble was  seized with a severe attack of rheumatism. Iteniembering the benefit my  daughter had received- from Dr. ".Vil-  liams' 'Pink'" Pills,' I' decided to use  them, and befo*e I had taken half a  dozen boxes I felt fully recovered and  have been- in the best of health ever  since.

He was a dandy- in figure  and dress. * He'had tho innocent- face  ��������� of a child.    He was guileless and In-  ��������� genuous.   He seemed to know-so little  of the ybrld that you wondered where  - he had passed his-30 years of life.   He  wanted to' make everybody's acquaint-'  '   ance   and   be .friends   with   all.   ..-You  couldn't help but sejt him 'down for.a  good  fellow just to look at him. and  .when you bad listened to-bis droll stories in the smoking room,.his songs in'  "   the cabin and the fairy stones he told  the children you had to agree that be  was justly a favorite.  7.   No one seemed to know Jimmy,-as  .he asked us to call him, beyond knowing that he lived" up the country on a  big horse farm and'was worth half a  million dollars.    It turned out that no  one  really   knew  that,  but had  taken  t his, word for it.   -However, it was no  ,   one's business to knowTn'ih.    He was  going .back  to England after a bride,  ..  and all the ladies aboard agreed that  he' was a good catch and the girl was  - in luck. Perhaps I got more out of  Mr. Melwill, than any other passenger.  It was,more, and-at the same,, time it  was Jess/ -In speaking of his horse  farm "-'to the lie.had been foolish enough  to locate it.. It was far,distant from  Melbourne, and'it was in an out of tbe  way place, but it so happened that I  had sbeepberded -aud prospected all  over'that* range an-^ knew his story to  be false. Tie saw by my looks that I  knew it to be so, and' he at once  turned the conversation and refused  any further information. Women will  lie when there is no object, but men  generally- plan to make a lie serve a  purpose. I tried to figure out why  Jimmy should lie, but tbe best guess  I could make at it was that he wanted  to pass for a richer man than he was.  ��������� There was nothing bad about that, and  I didn't pprinit the-falsehood to open  any breach between us.  When we came to shake ourselves  " down aboard, I noticed that there were  a lot of rather tough looking men  among the steerage passengers. It  was-explained that they were going to  the Cape to work on a new railroad.  As near as I could size them up they  were all colonials and men more used  to horse's than picks and shovels. Your  true navvy, or day laborei, would have  sprawled in the shade and slept and  smoked and been content. I picked  out a dozen or more of tbe so called  workingmen who were nervous and  uneasy, and they often formed little  groups and seemed to hold much converse in whispers. This, however, was  only a trifling incident. Tec-pie ou  shipboard liave uothiug to do but gossip and observe. A mau who would not  walk ten steps on laud to see a captive eagle will sit for an hojirand  watch the erratic bight 6f a gull. 1  think the sleek Jimmy must have  caught me watching the steerage, passengers, for be took occasion one day  to observe:  "There seems to be a fine lot of men  going out to the Cape.with us?"  "As far as bone and muscle go," I replied. -:  "But it takes bone and muscle to  build railroads." ���������  "Of course, but this Is the first time  I ever heard of Australians'being shipped to the Cape for such work. Is  there any scarcity of native help? I  can't imagine one of those chaps over  yonder with his soft hands doing much  with pick and shovel."  "No, perhaps not." replied Jimmy in  an absent-way as he looked at me  through half closed eyes.  Then he extended his cigar case, proposed a game of euchre, and the subject was dropped. I don't claim that I  was suspicious of Jimmy or that I was  disturbed by the gang in the steerage.  On tbe contrary, I was perfectly easy  in my,mind in all respects. I had read  in the Australian papers that tbe  Ocean Queen was carrying home more  than a million dollars in gold. In fact,  I had seen most of tbe boxes brouerbt  aDoara and taken down to the strong  room. All other passengers must have  been aware of the treasure, but there  was little or no talk about it. I think  the sleek, slick man was the only one  I heard say anything about it. As we  sat -smoking and yarning one day he  carelessly mentioned tbe treasure and  then wondered how much all the' gold  and silver lost (liy shipwreck would  amount to!.  Tt is a wide expanse of ..ocean be-  tween-the Cape.-andjA'ustralia, and at  the end ot a week "we bad all settled  down into grooves and fallen, into a  monotonous routine. Early.bne morning  a sail was sighted dead ahead, ana almost as.rfoon as she had been made out  it'was seen that she'bad a distress iiag  flying. Tbe news went over the ship,  ���������and in a moment everybody was interested . and anxious. Tbe ship in distress was a brig, and.'so far as any of  us could make out, she was all right  alow and aloft. If she hadn't sprung  a leak, then it must be a case of fever  or mutiny, or perhaps. she had run  short of water and provisions. -Jimmy  stood beside me"as' we borcedown en,  the brig', and,- although I twice asked  him what he .thought about it, he did,  not seem.to hoar me. I turned to lock  at him as be closed his glass and found  'a smile on his.fnc.'v  "You don't think,it a joke, do you?"  I askew rather brusquely.  ��������� "Ob. no, no!"'he replied, smiling, and  chuckling at tbe same time. "Xo: it's  no,, joke. There will" be no laughing  over it." ��������� ' ' '     "  c, His tones w.ere --sarcastic, aud for an  instant'there was a. look 'of triumph in  his eyes. ��������� Then be turned away, and 1-  gave the, brig my attention. We ran  down to within half a- mile of her before our engines were stopped. Only'  three men were visible on. her decks,  and she hadn't a boat in "sight. The  trio,-beckoned and motioned that we  should send a boat.'.- and-' tho captain  gave ordei'3 that one should be lowered.  "It will be a case of fever." he'said.-  "with all tbe officers and most of tue  men down,'-' and the surgeon was scut  off with tbe boat, which was in charge  of the second mate. Eight of our crew,  were thus taken. ' The boat had pulled  half the distance to the brig* when we  had something nearer home,to attract  attention. Tbe sleek, slick little Jimmy suddenly held' a cocked revolver  to the captain's ear and- marched him  into his stateroom._ Fourteen of the  "railroad" men from the steerage, each  armed with a pistbi and'km re, sudden-,  ly appeared among us. and it "wasn't  three minutes before tbe whole crowd  of us were in the cabin and a guard,  over.us. ,The engine" room was taken  possession of at the same "time, and  the Ocean Queen had been taken possession of without a shot being fired.  The brig was' lj-ing' broadside to us.  She h.vT two, boats down on the far  side, with 15 men in each boat, and  as soon as they bad pulled around and  captured our yawl one* boatload of the  rascals came aboard tbe Queen, and  the steamer was worked down alongside the brig. The sea was smooth,  aud the fellows could lash the craft  together without fear of disaster.  We had been taken completely by  surprise and had no show. They bad  the gold out and transferred within an  hour. It is to the credit of the rascally  gang to say that they wei'e under good  control and insulted no one. After  the gold was disposed of they robbed  the ship of a lot of bedding and provisions, and at tbe last the sleek, slick  man came down into the cabin to ciy  a few words. . He was smiling and  good natured. He patted the children,  bowed to the ladies and waved big  hand to tbe men.  ''My dear friends," he said in that  ���������soft, silky .voice" of his, "I hope that I  have given you no trouble. Rather let  me hope that you will look upon it as  an incident to break the monotony of  the voyage.

He swept everything into a sack, bath;  us a fond adieu, aud within ten minutes  set each one up handsomely, and- I  have always thought of Jimmy/the  slick one as touring about in the finest  raiment; drinking the rarest wines and  making himself a favorite wherever he  stopped for a, week:  [Copyright. ,10C0. by C.

We lay rolling in  midocean for four days before the engineer bad made repairs, and by that  time the brig was several hundred  miles'away.

We made a slow run  for the remainder of tlie voyage, and it  was three weeks before a man-of-war  started out to look for the pirate craft.  It had been a job put up in Australia,  and it had worked to perfection. It  may be that the brig returned to that  coast and landed and divided the swag,  but as she had a dozen different places  to choose from she had no fear of capture.

As for mc;-" quoth  Halbert C3'nically, "give me the first  every time.,, You'gcan' trust to an adventuress to have a little gray matter  at least in her cranium." 'He was talking to his secretary, young Allen, a callow youth,.almost effeminate, but nev-'  ertlielcss brainy,' too brainy,* i as Halbert expressed it, "'for his size and  weight.V Allen had got-used to these'  sinister observations'concerning womankind and rarely ever offered any  comment either to agree or to refute  tho other's statements. These two individuals were a study for one another. The hour in which Allen accepted  the position of private ^secretary, a  short time before, they "found a pleasant communion of tastes and ideas and  a peculiar, inexplicable sympathy of  feeling that seemed to have puzzled  both. ' -  Halbert was a confirmed bachelor.  ITc boasted of never having proposed  to any woman. f-Ie was afraid of  them. In his estimation they weve all  scheming politicians and ready to marry him or any man at a moment's no:  tiee. "Keep the women away from  me!" snarled Halbert at times when  driven by force to a crush. "I'd rather  smoke or sleep." And the little secretary, with his strong, boyish ardor,  kept them far away and comforted  Halbert with his companionable silence.  The one measure in Allen's make up  which   Halbert .could   not  understand  He could  a  cigarette. And in tho matter of drinking, though Allen could mix a punch or  a cocktail  with  commendable art.  he  wasjiis reluctance to smoke  never get  him   to  indulge even in  brottghr "(ha-m .".fasted to Halbert as  a hind of offering to that exalted  wretch.  "Yon should have been a woman, by  gad." Halbert- said once to him. "A  thousand - pardons. Allen, but you  would have made a fine lookiug girl.  You've got grace and tact enough-for  it. you know-. Why. believe me. Allen,  if there were women like you today,  with the brain aud all. I believe I'd  marry one of them." Allen actually  blushed and retreated in confusion.  Halbert'liked this display of'apparent  shyness,-and bis affection for the boy  grew. He liked to slap him on the-  back, and he said he felt lonesome  when the chap: was away. "I tell you  what, Alleu. I don't know .whether to  adopt you as my son, considering the-  fact that I shall never have one of my  own, or whether to let things slide on  as formerly and just double j-our salary-"  Things slid-on as formerly untii Halbert announced a hunting trip to Abyssinia. He had actually completed plans  for both and was sketching out iii his  imagination th.e delicious camaraderie  of two in a tent in the wilds of Africa  when Allien announced his intention to  resign.  "You ungrateful beggar, you can't resign," Halbert shouted. "Why, my  boy, I can't go without you. What's  tbe matter?"  "The fact of the matter is, sir," Allen  replied respectfully, "I don't want to  go with you."  ,  It was a blow, and it landed between  Halbert's eyes. He loved Allen if be-  ever loved any being on earth, and this  was the first time that he ever had  been thwarted. Not given to sentiment  or pleading, he nursed his agony silently, for Allen's abruptness stung  him with all the agony of .unfiliaj in-1  gratitude, of unrequited love, of treachery in a friend���������everything. It pained  Halbert, as he had* never been 'pained  before. That afternoon he ordered his  horse for a long ride and went out dejectedly with a load on ins shoulders.  ,IIe wanted to,puzzle out the,situation.  He had - never to plead with any one  before in his life for what he wanted,  and he hated, to plead now. It might  seem unmanly.- be feared. He, went  out without calling to Allen, and he  did not'return for dinner.'  The secretary ,iu the meantime felt  an t.nhnpp3* sinking of his heart as the  .hours dragged by and Halbert did not  return.' It was his custom at least to  return to dress for the evening.' especially if he meant to dine out, and his  continued absence made Allen uneasy.  He did not know whether Halbert  cared about his refusal to accompany  bim.- but" be knew that he himself  cared, and ,he felt he could -not acquaint his friend with tlie real reason  until he had actually gone.  ' At 9 o'clock Halbert'came back���������not  exactly ou,a stretcher., but leaning on  the arm of 'his valet. Fie had had a  bad fall somewhere on the Riverside  drive, rind he had turned .his* elbow-  badly���������sprained it. in fact. They had  actually subjected him to the' annoyance of carrying him to a hospital be-  cause,he had been'too da zed-to remonstrate, and'when his mind was eventually clear he "demanded removal to his  own rooms. ft  His valet settled him comfortably on  a divan and had left .the room when  Halbert sank into alight slumber. In  a few moments Allen came in, white,  haggard, limp with anxiety, and stood  - there looking at Halbert with startled  pain in bis gaze; then, .with a sudden,  incontrollable impulse, be knelt down  beside the divan for a moment and,  grasping one of tbe sufferer's hands in  his own., pressed it to. his lips with'ft  sob of distress and pain.  Halbert opened his eye's, and turned  ,to look at him. -He was almost too  dum founded to speak. Allen got up in  confusion.-, and Halbert kept smiling  and staring at bim in a .riot of bewildered ideas, groping, as he did, in a  queer labyrinth of uncertainties like a  man struggling* to "face some'peculiar  situation , that his mind refuses to  grasp.-     .   ,. ��������� ���������      ���������       .'  '     _  "I trust you 'will pardon myc intrusion," 'Allen^ said, standing by a .window and looking out.into the night,  "but they told,nie you had been seriously hurt, and���������aud--it almost broke  my heart." ���������-  Halbert sat'un on the edge of the divan and. drawing his dressing gown  around him closely, remained there'  looking at Allen like one surprised in  half toilet and somewhat nervous because of it. The kiss of the youth  burned still in tbe flesh of his hand,  and it traveled along the channels of  feeling and warmed his heart.  Something was groping in his mind  for recognition. He still stared at Allen and took in, with careful, scrutinizing gaze, the supple lines of his  tall,, svelte -figure.' the" curves of his  long neck, the slender hands and feet.  "Allen," Halbert said, antbhe got up  and walked close to the youth and  stood u������ar him, his ej-es still searching  the boyish face, "Allen. I want.to ask  you a question. In God's name, don't-  bo offended if I am wrong. But I don't  think I am wrong. It never occurred  to me before, but I am a blind fool,  and it unnerves me. Look at me, Allen, and answer this: Are you a woman?"  Allen winced and turned farther  away and leaned against a table as if  to steady himscl*. The young face  was- seamed with pain. There was a  long silence as Ma!b*>rt waited for the  other io speak. "You arc a womau."'  he repeated.  ''Yes. I am a woman." The words  came at last, firmly, almost defiantly,  like thunder in Halbert's ears, stunning him.  "My God!" was ail that came from  between the parted, eager lips of the  other. "But this costume���������why this?  I don't understand."  "L.ecnuse'everybody has a prejudice  against petticoats in the professions.'**  the girl answered, "and I was bound 1  would not let that interfere with my  progress. Why should I, be bound  down, tied like a slave, because of a.  mere selfish, unreasonable prejudice?"  The color burned in her cheeks brilliantly, and Halbert-stepped toward  her with a sudden, quick movement,  his arms outstretched, love on his  tongue, in bis eyes, in his gestures.  The girl stepped away from him as he  would have touched her arm.  "Mr. Halbert." she' said, with dignity. 'T am your secretary and in your  rooms, and you have discovered that  I am a woman. Please respect my unhappy position, for I want you to believe that I am neither a designing adventuress nor a simpering dolt. There  is another class that you seem to be  unacquainted with���������that, you do not  scorn to take into consideration." She  looked at him steadily, her eyes burning with determination.  Halbert's head sank under the siege  of her look. FTcr speech hurt him: it  crushed him. Yes. be loved this,girl;  he understood it now. He bad been a  blind, self absorbed fool.  , "Girl, .dbn't crush nie under your  heel." He had-not thought that there,  could be lack'of respect , where ��������� love  dwelt.        ' -���������,   '  "oWhile I am your secretary you must  not speak of love. It is an unfair ad-  Vantage."  "Then I discbarge you this moment,"  cried Halbert, aroused. The girl could  scarcely suppress a smile.'though she  struggled" to be adamant. She turned  and walked quickly toward the door.  , '.Glome back7 girlie. Don't go ancl  leave,me like this. You've, wound yourself all around my heart with"a million  tendrils.. I can't let you 'go' now���������I  want you to be my wife. Don't you  love me? You won't go away now  when I want you most."
