Thus it. is that Mme.-de ConviUc. the  v.-iiV of Captain Itogor do Gouville, told  ii)c what Bin' know of-little Lieutenant  Yves Barnabe do Pelven. whoso chum  ] had boon at St. Cyr and whom I had  novel- soon aftor wo loft the coll ego.  'It  was  in   1ST1.    Our  regiment  was  tlion   at   the   village   of   V .   a   Tow  miles from the provisional frontier.'  The'town'lay in the midst,of a forest  $3 id had becn'partly destroyed during  the war.' We,lived in wooden barracks  tl:;it had been built by the Germans.  Not far away was. tho lino of black  and white posts that marked the .provisional .'frontier, and "it was one of our  pastimes to ride out ,to them. Tho  young 'otlicers' dreamed of nothing but  the chance of provoking a frontier ecu-  ftk-t. Some made targets of the point-  oil helmets found and brought in by  the peasants, arranging matters'so as  to-be seen by tho (.Gorman sentinels:  ���������ethers galloped wildly across,the lino  unci back again. -.    .  One of them, however. Yves do Pol-  von do .Kerdee, took no share in these  pleasantries. When he was asked to  join in. he would shrug'his shoulders  softlv and murmur. "Childishness!"  11 o was left to"do as he pleased., No  one cared. Only after awuile wo discovered that he was accustomed to  take long solitary rides at night and in  a direction lli'at did not-lead to France!  We began to watch him more from cu-  riositv than from suspicion. I myself. I.confess, was drawn toward him  b.v this original and mysterious mode  cf existence.  He was then a slight, blond, pale  youth, feminine of features,-all'nerve  and muscle, tireless, fearless, silent.  llo was liked by the men. although  they were a trifle jealous of .that indefinable superiority which marked his  breeding. - Some of the old .veterans of  swarthy skin and voice loved him in  spite  of   his  refinement.    They  called  him  ".Mile, do  Pelven," or "the  litLle  mademoiselle.". ������  With Ave years of service to his ci-od-  ������wa������W**?*i1. he had���������still the'-aircf a young con-  ^^S^^-'-KfHpt'^His*voice was gentle.    1 never  ���������r  heard him yell or curse tho men or  horses. At 10 he had received a decoration for distinguished bravery at Re-  zonville.  He had his lodgings outside of town  ,in a solitary cottage, surrounded by  rosebushes and cedars���������he and his  clogs It"irumd and Tigresso. a 'great  Dane and a little striped bulldog. His  horses  wore tAVO long,  slender Anglo-  A rabs.  We gossiped not a little about tho  ' lieutenant, his 'mode of life and his  character; we discussed his fortune  and the employment of his time outside of the service, for. besides his regular appearance twice a day at mess,  ho took part in none of our entertainments. Pic was often seen alone, galloping liis horses over the green meadows of the.yaone. 1-To rode in some of  the impromptu races, winning often,  but without pride, without exultation,  taking: the things as part of the trade.  He never touched cards. His horses,  his dogs, seemed his sole distraction.  At times ho'disappeared for a week or  so and on returning would say, "My  father was down to see me." It was  known that he .had a ���������father, an old  man living in Kretaguo. Yves spoke  of him only on those days.  The  self   isolation   of   the  boy   was  somewhat of a mystery to us.    Each  "one explained in his own way the singular   comrade,   "the   little   mademoiselle."    For some ['elvon  was the son  of a Galician princess and a Knight of  Malta,   which   was   not   impossible,   it  being the usage since the days of Louis XIV to accord that title to , French  gentlemen having contracted a marital  alliance in Austria.    In  fact. Austrian  decorations had been scon in his room.  That,  at  least,   was aliirnied by some  of the   indiscreet ones  who had   penetrated the great chamber whore he was  wont to "dig"  on-, his strategy during  the   warm   hours of  day.     A  singular'  room it was���������at once salon, library and  saddlery, the refuge of a thinker and-  1 lie bandy shop of a soldier, but its interior,   in   spite  of   the   weapons,   was  rather feminine, and this struck the inferior officers who'were accustomed to  visit it with their reports.    There were  always fresh flowers in  his room, and  one day. when souio inquisitive spirit  explored the pockets of his "dolman,"  which he had cast off during a fencing  bout,  they discovered  a  golden   locket  on which sparkled a strange little diamond  wing.    They did not succeed in  opening it.  "lie is a sentimentalist," Commandant St. Perle would say, "and the  proof is that when one y��������� -ot-  tage in the .evening one. hears ,him-  playing the adagio of Beethoven's  sonata"in A,.flat, the sonata of monks  and  priests."  One morning my husband, the. captain, came in very much worried.- 1  questioned him. No answer. lie drove  away'in his phaeton as.soon as breakfast was over with ^.several other officers. Pie returned at S o'clock alone,  having left tho .others at the club. Aftor dinner he held'a conference with the  fencing master and the chief armorer:  then Rt. Perle. his. friend. ca������ie and  called him below,his window.' I heard  him order the landeau with ������the bisr  ran���������horses for 3 o'clock in the morning. "Ah," stud I to myself, "a duel!  And I supnose that they will tight at  Delle:" Tins spot'lay on-the other side  of ��������� the frontier, and experience had  taught uie that, such affairs usually  took place there.  Toward 10 o'clock the party returned. Another conference took,place in  my ��������� husband's study. I heard the  .brusque voice of St. Perle, the gentle  voice of Be Pelven," a bell-rang; I  heard my husband'call for'grog, port  wine and ice* then the hours passed,  and silence' reigned.    -    '   -  I remained awake, very,curious. At  2 Roger came into my room in full uniform and cloak. I did not question  him, for I knew that he would not answer. When it was he that was about  to tight, he w'ould always' tell me  brusquely. This had 'happened three  times in our ten months of married  life. Like a curious 'child, I" peered ���������  from behind the blinds and saw them  start off."There were St. Perle. Roger,  Pelven and the surg&m. "Who is to  ' fight?" I thought- "It must be Pelven,  for St. Perle would not take an inferior in rank for. second." ' ( *  Finally I went to bed,'nervous and  worried, Morning broke. I rose late.  "' feeling bereft of all my friends., I wandered through, the-'house. I entered the  study, hung with skius, oriental rugs,  panoplied'with weapons." On the blackboard I saw some half' erased sentences. "I opened the curtain,- and  there, in the bitter atmosphere of cold  tobacco smoke, in this almost sinister  disorder of a room where people have  watched overnight, ;I tried to decipher  the' half obliterated marks. . The  phrases seemed rhythtned. At length  I finished by making out these scraps  of verse:   .  Qu'on m'enterre  ,  i      En satin blanc  ���������     Comine un seigneur  Et qu'on eanitonne* ma������biere  Toule de 'roses;  ���������    Cost ma flour���������  Bury me t  c ���������>- In white satin    ' ' ,  As a lord ,  And cover my bier'   "',  With roses; " ������������������  ,   It is my Bower.  I wandered about all day, oppi'essed,  feverish'.""'  Yon know yourself that Pelven was  killed. Roger came back .that uight  alone' and grieved.  Who was the adversary of De Pelven V An officer? Yes. Who? ' I will  not tell you. Only a few knew, and  the secret has been well-kept. The  reason of the duel?-' Nothing', they said  ���������a trifle���������but 1- have'always suspected  that somebody had accused him of  passing too easily across the frontier  alone at.night.  The next day Pelvon's aged father  came and took away the body. It  seems that all the affairs of tho lien-  tenant were in perfect order. lie must  have had a presentiment that ho was  going to be killed, for the words on the  blackboard were in the nature of directions for his own burial. And that'  was the end of the poor "little mademoiselle."   - ' '  Two  months  passed.    Spring ca.mc\  -One day we all started on a drag party  in the woods on the road to Delle.    A  little before luncheon I went strolling  in the forest with two or three friends.  Suddenly we saw a landeau. drawn by  two   beautiful   horses,  coining  toward  lis"-along a deserted road.    In tho landeau  was an old. pale'woman and  a  young girl, pretty, clad in black.    We  were turning out for-them'when a dog  jumped from tho carriage.    We recognized it at once.    It was Tigresso.'the  little bulldog���������De Pelvon's dog.    While,  ho   \vas   springing   at   us.   licking   our  hands   for  joy.   tho  landeau   stopped,  and a great, gold braided valet stepped  out and  solemnly' picked   up  the  dog.  The little beast struggled, but in spite  of yelps, howls and tugs the man proved the stronger, and the landeau passed on.  Naturally we talked of the incident.  "What a singular thing���������Tigresso with  those strangers���������strangers from over  the frontier too! Tho liveries are blue  and black���������Prussian nobility."  Talking thus, wo came back to the  rendezvous. There we found Louis- de  Rolk. one of my'friends, whose castle,  although in France, yet touches the  frontier. We questioned him about  the landeau.  "What, don't you know?" he answered. "That is the Princess of Burgfeld,  with her ���������dame de compagnie.' She is  doing penance in her 'schloss' instead  of dancing in Paris, as she' generally  does in the spring. It is said that during the war she had a romance, a delicious romance, with a French lieutenant whose name I could never learn.  They had sworn eternal fidelity. 1  don't know what has happened since,  but she now lives in solitude and will  enter a  cor-v--'- ���������������������   Mannheim on  her  twenty-fifth   birthday  unless  she gets-  'out  of  her sentimentalisms.   which   is'  not patriotic from the German point of  view, for she is the daughter of one of  the first genciinls of the empire."  He said no more, but we understood.  Poor Pelven!" That was the explanation of, those long nocturnal rides, taken at the risk of the sentinels' bullets:  that was the moaning of'that sequestrated life, of (he golden locket, with  its wins���������symbol of his ethereal,love,  fitful and fragile: that was the, reason  for that life of mystery, poetry and silence, the roses in the cottage, the adagio of Beethoven and the duet, which  finished it all.1 He was dreaming, "the  little mademoiselle." And in that dream  he died'.���������From the' French of Adolpho  Chenovievre For Chicago Times-Herald. ,  \  Onr   UlriiTirall.

He was  temperamentally sedate and at 3S felt  himself to ,he' quite a Methuselah.    Besides she had. so to apeak, grown up at  Matthew's knee, he having, stood to her  and  her brother, in   loco  parentis  for  something   like ,12" years^ever   since  'Matthew's best beloved friend,   Howard" Joy, took his invalid wife away for  a sea voyage,'leaving his two children  in tho. good'care of a maiden aunt and  bis business affairs in the safe hands  of 'Mattbew.

"That's a secret," said Miss Idle-  wild, with an air of mystery.  "I'cannot  let you  have any  money l  just now, Eve," he said gently after a  pause,  and  as  he spoke  he  carefully  avoided her eye and stared with rapt  absorption at the carpet.  "Hereafter," continued Miss Idle-  wild, with a grand air, "T will manage my own money matters. Then I  will know just how much I have and  spend it as I please without begging  for it. I am of age, and I will not endure such treatment any longer."  All this she said in anger, never  dreaming'that long suffering Matthew  would take her at her word.  "Very well," he said, and he was a  little paler as he spoke. "I will take  steps to this end at once. You will find  I have not abused my trust."  Incensed as she was, Miss Idlewild'a  head drooped with something like  shame at these words.

Then he released her quickly with an  expression on his face as of one expecting the heavens to fall.

Frightened by this information, the  sons hurriedly returned home and, obtaining another rope, fastened it about  .the neck, of their father and let the  body down in the position in which  they had found it.  Theyi then hunted up the police sergeant and told him of the suicide of  their father. When the policesergeant  reached the house, he cut down the  body, but was quite surprised to find  that there were two ridges around the  throat. He asked for an explanation.

It was a game between the Parker  street Bohunkers and thc'Blondo street  Oeehilikers, for ,the championship of the '  election precinct, and a������warm game it  was. , r    ���������  .The old gentleman watched the game  with great interest andfapplauded every,  good play. .-  "That's the stuff!" he shouted as the  Bohunkers' catcher nailed a' base runner at second.  ".Lead off!    Lead off!" he shrieked'as-  the   Bohunkers'   base   runner   on    third  fchowed   a  disposition   to  hug  the   base.  "Ginger  up!    Ginger  up!    Now 3;6u're"  off!

' Of course you who have wasted valuable time in reading this little story are  prepared to exclaim:  "The old duffer got the ball on the  kisser the first Hop out of' the bos."  Well, that's just where your thinker  doesn't track. The old man froze fast to  every curve shot over the plate, slammed  the ball down to second and caught a  base runner by ten feet and made a" long  sprint and nailed a pop up foul that looked as if it1 uore goingto drop outside the  lot.,  "I guess I ain't lost my old catching  eye yet," he exclaimed as he laid down  his mitt at the < rid of the inning and  made a run for-his ear.���������Omaha , World-  Herald.

"When my. return home is uncertain, before the family retire to. rest  some sort of refreshment is gcne^iily  laid out for me." ,  During the short* interval of his sons  --absence from the room Richard Goodie's first care was to see to the fastening of the outer door; but' it was n.l-  '" ready locked, and _ the key had been  -vv'ith'dra-.vn by Silas'on'" their first entrance. ���������" " \  Returning to the .table, Richard filled  the tumbler half full of raw spirits, and  ���������teased it down his throat as though he  were drinking water. '.-..���������  ��������� "Ha!" he said, drawing a long breuch  ' of satisfaction---' "It- P'Uts fresh life in a  -man:'but 'for" that I' should have boon  dead long ago-" " ' r  ���������:' Pie replaced the empty tumbler upon  'the table, and again.fflaneed around the  rcoui.  "Silas was always a clever lad���������a  very clever lad. A bit of a doctor, too,"  he ..went om, as ho examined a row of  phials that, carefully stoppered and filled .with, various colored liquids were  ���������ranged  upon   the chimney-piece.  Some ,bore written labels 'of their  ���������cr stents', which were principally the  ���������subtle juices of various plants, m m,y  ���������of them of a poisonous character- He  read many of them over carelessly; then,  -returning to tlie table, resumed has seat,  having again recourse to the spirit de-  ���������canter.  Poor   Silas!   what   his  thoughts   were  .a* he stood in    tho darkened    kitchen.  ��������� Siu-rriedly placing the food he found upon  a tray, may be imagined, but cannot ]_os-  .sibly be described.  CHAPTER  XLII.  A    KEVELATIOX.  "His hunger appeased, Richard Good-  eve, leaii'l'iig bacl; in his chair, gazed  ���������steadfastly on his son. who stood leaning by the chimney, his arms, folded,  his eye bent sadly on the floor.  "How long will it be before the hwuse-  iiold here iy  awakeV"  "A.u hour: at least," was the answer  igiven iu a low voice, and the eyes still  .bent ti'ii the ground-  "We have plenty of time for u talk,  -tl en, Uiongu iii.. .-lory is soon toid. ^ay  letters. VAb wirhizi. the last twelve  nunths, have kept you well informed  , .as to my movements'..' My last nn-  iu. ���������unceiiient ���������ho-w,' having conquered a  fortune, when -least expected, I had  .c-hai'te-i-ed a vessel, the Petrol,, to carry  -me and my worldly goods to New Yc<*k.  It  was  lust   as.  of  course,   you   beard."  "The newspapers, both American and  English, announced Its. total less, w-itih  -all hands," said Silas, still without iook-  ing up.  "Including. Mr. Owens, the owner of  -the ship," added his father, with a laaigh.  "I turned over a file of papers a 1'ew  -days ago, and read an account of the  shipwreck. "We struck upon' the. reel's,  and every living soul was swallowed up  but one���������myself The man who most  *doso-rvcd drowning���������the Jonah of ihe  ship���������I was saved."  "And for twelve months you have left  .aaein ignorance of this!" moaned Silas.  "A negligence soon explained. Just  ���������before the .ship got among the breakers a great wave washed me off the  deck. Luckily, I had sufficient .presence  of mind to grasp a hen-coop; and so the  hen-coop and I went over the side together. We floated clear of the reef,  ���������somehow, and, though half-stunned by  the water, and much bruised, I had  -still strength enough to crawl on the  itcp of the hen-coop and, with my neek-  -chicif and braces fastened my left arm  and one of my legs securely to the wo ,d-  work. How long I Jioated, and in  what manner I  was bruised and beaten  by the waves that awful night, it is im-  pc.e.s.ble ior me to say. I <must have lost  consciousness hours before I was picked  up, for I was miles- away 'froin the  ireacherous reef'when 1 again opened  my eyes to find myself upon the de.-.k  of an American whaler bound fo.r the  Antarctic 'Ocean. The captain was  short of men. thiee being - down , with  scurvy; he had no intention of put'lng*  in at any port..and, was 'not likely to  disturb his plains on my account. H������  made me an offer to take the place of  'one of tue sick men, with double pay  and double rations, for I had told him  of my loss,, and of my former position.  There" was no need to take much time  for lefleetion. I'.knew ,'tha.t, I'd lost  everything, and that to, be well trailed  it was'my duty" to make myself us-J-ful.  I accepted the captain's offer' with  gratitude, and for months and months  we turned our back upon the solid  earth, ami, cruised in the vast, hunting-  grounds of the Antarctic Seas. We  got back at last, however; but being  knocked about sadly, put into' Charleston for repairs, it being as much a-s we  could do to keep the battered old tub  above 'water, and save hs vahviole  cago. Wo'hadn't 'been three days in  port, but. that I, had the Jonah's hick  again, being laid upon my back with  yellow fever-  "My" captain behaved like the -honest  man he was. lie saw me comfortably  housed,in the hospital: and, knowing  that I was an Englishman, lodged all  the money '1 had earned, ' and a little  neat-egg, of dollars beside, in "the hands  of the British consul, for my sole, use  and .benefit.' '/It was a long 'time bef are  I came round again. , "When I did I  rc&e up from my sick-bed with a'strange  craving-, for home���������to see once more the  scenes in. which my boyhood,and manhood had been passed- I prayed that  my life might be -spared yet a.liltle longer! that I might hear your voice*again,  Silas, and'look, even'though but for a  brief minute, upon your face, my son."  Silas' eyes were still bent on the flo:r,  but the'tears fell from them thick ������nd  fust.       ' ,s  His father after a short ,p������use, continued to speak, though in a sadder,  lowca.-voice than before-  ��������� "I was not penniless when I, arrived  in London. I am not penniless now. But,  chough I had traveled over an ocean to  satisfy an' irresistible craving,, an unconquerable desire to revisit this pl-ice,  no sooner did 1 find myself on English  soil than I hesitated for days before I  decided upon,-taking the journey; and  when I did set out, I loitered upon the  reads; foxy as'before said,'I traveled on  -foot, and at each direction-post Rebated  whether to tunic back  or- go  forward.  Without" looking  at. his  son,  Richard'!  Goodeye  again''half-filled     the   tumbler  with brandy,  but  this "time  adding  the  same quantity of valor.*  ��������� "I  came  across  Denton, Heath,  being  directed to this cottage by a shepherd's  boy I met over the other .side; but another  lad,   herding   sheep   down   by   St.  Bridget's   Hill, "told   me   that   you   had  left   early   hi   the   morning,   and     that  when   you   went   into   Got ford,   it   was  nigh sure you wouldn't return till evening,   if   then-     So,   desiring   to   see   no  ore���������-no one but you���������I passed the day,  as I have passed many and many a day  h.iig  years   before,   out   on   the   heath."  ' "Father"���������for the first time Silas advanced   to   the   table,   and   taking   tlie  one other chair, seated himself opposite  to   Richard   Goodove���������"father,   you   did  not remain on Denton Heath; you visited the Silveiy Wood,   and  spent a portion of your day in the Deep Hollow.''  Richard Goodove started 1o his feet-.  "How do you know that? I have been  watched!   I   must   have   been   watched,  or how  could  you   have  known <that?"  "I   was    there,  -also,"     replied   Silas,  sadly.  "You!"  "But after you left the place. I  traced your footsteps, not knowing them  to be yours, to .where they were .lost  in the wood-"  "What brought yon to that place?"  demanded  Goodeve,  after  a  pause.  "Prayer!" was the quiet answer. "For  years I have prayed (here for us bo-h."  ' "Does  she live? Tell  me,   Silas,   that  she lives, and that she is happy in the  love  and   companionship  of her child?"

THE WONDROUS STORY OF THE DOCTRINE "OF AVERAGES.  '4.' Law That ��������� Is the"' Fonndotion  Stone of All Successful Insurance  Easiness���������The Scope of tlie Modern  Mortality Table.  ' "The doctrine of averages is a wonder-  ,ful  thing,"   said  a   prominent  New  Orleans insurance man, chatting in his otJice  a lew days'ago.    "It ^s-the foundation of  all successful  life insurance,- and   before  suflicient data were accumulated to form  the basis of the .calculations we employ  today there was no such thing as.a perfectly safe and stable, company, no,matter how large a capital'i������ might possess.  Now all that is changed.     We have the  carefully compiled statistics of more than  a hundred years, and we are able to figure  out-to, a  nicety  the  average  life^of*  civilized  men!     We  can't  tell  bow  long  you personally are going to' live,  but we:  can   tell   with   marvelous "exactness  how  long 10,000 men of your age and general  condition will survive upon 'the average.'  ".The modern 'mortality table,' as it is  .calied.  is a  striking example of  patient  'research and sagacious reasoning.     It is  built up from the vital statistics of thou- <  sands   of   towns   and   cities   and   covers  i'roin three to four generations..   Without  it we would be completely at sea, for we  would have uo means of determining how  much we should charge a policy holder in  installments,  otherwise premiums.  for; a  certain sum, payable atmis death.-   By its  aid  we are able to compute'the amount  to a-nicety,  audi while some die earlier  and some later, the average will  hit the  figures  of'the mortality  table to   within'  less than'30 days. ��������� When  you come to  ..think   about   it,   that   is   an  astonishing  achievement,  and'we are growing more  ��������� and more accurate all tlie time..   We are  going further and further into details and  linding out the precise effect of. different  conditions and climate and surroumliugs  and   vocations on   the  duration   of   life.  The mortality statistics of the future will.  be as exact as the multiplication table.  "This great principle of the .doctrine of,  overages." .continued the insurance man,  "is being rapidly extended into curious  and interesting side fields'.! The bond  companies which furnish surety for all  kinds of employees', public and private.  simply insure men's honesty and do it on  exactly the same basis that other companies insure men's lives. Instead of mortality tables,they use what might be called 'probity tables.' They, calculate, in  other'words.".what percentage of men'will  steal among a thousand or 10.0U0 trusted  ���������servants, surrounded by certain' similar  temptations, and their, ngures' are based  ,o'n exact.records. There is no, sentiment  about.the matter. They say, in effect, to  an applicant for a''bond.' 'The_ odds, that  , you will turn thief are 1 to 400*-or 1 to  i)0O or whatever the case may be. and we  are willing to assume the risk for such a  sum, payable annually.' .: ���������'  , ,4A11 sorts of side 'questions are .being  probed into: Is an,,employee morejhkely  to steal from a corporation than^fmm'au  individual? Are married men more or  less honest than bachelors? At what age  do most cases of ^embezzlement occur?  .These and many other questions are being rigidly investigated; the tendency being to reduce -the business to more and  more of an exact science aud incidentally  to reduce'^he premiums, because it goes  without saying that the greater the accuracy of the calculations the slighter  will be the risk. The old style of getting  a bond was to go to a friend and ask him  to hazard a considerable amount on your  integrity as a personal favor. It was  embarrassing, to both sides. The new  stvie is to go to a surety company, which  replies: 'All right, sir. Please step up  and have your honesty measured on our'  scale of averages.' Iu time,the breaking'  strain of all men will be correctly graded.  It won't mean that any particular chap  in. for instance, the '$10,000 class' will  steal when he gets a chance to secure  that amount of plunder, but that a specified number in. say. "JO.000 will be morally certain to succumb before such a temptation.  "The employers' liability associations  are another development of the same system. They insure against certain mishaps that used to be regarded as mere  freakish visitations of Providence.  Look  ing at the matter from a cold business'  standpoint, the statistician has .figured  out how many employees will tumble  down stairs, mash their fingers, fall into  elevator shafts, get caught by belting and  do other painful and disabling things in  a given, space of factory or shop. They  calculate upon so many' accidents per  annum to so many square feet of floor,  and although such things would seemrto  be contingent on the purest chance their  statistics have proved so exact that the  business of these associations is on almost as rigid a basis'as that of an old  line life insurance company. The indemnity, you understand, is'to protect employers against damage suits, and instead  of 'leaving that item as an indefinite  menace to profits a firm is now enabled  to set aside,, a certain amount- annually  for premiums and may consider the risk  as ended.  "Burglar insurance is still another illustration.   Knowing the size^of a city, the'  number  of  its  police,' its annual  record ,,  of arrests and certain other particulars,  the expert is able to calculate with considerable exactitude the risk run by each  householder of being looted by midnight  prowlers.    It' seems, a little  fantastic,  1 '  admit; but I am told that the.business is  u decided success.   In the same line 'are  cyclone   insurance,   window-, glass   insurance, crop insurance, live stock insurance  and a hundred and one'special  varieties  that are multiplying every day.' In  Europe they  have gone even  further  than  here. and\there is hardly a line of hazard  upon which one can-engage for'which it  is not possible to secure indemnity from*  loss.  But it6all resolves itself down to the  ���������ame law of averages, and the sum total  of varied statistics continually- being_ collected by the agents of ,the different com-,  panics is vast almost.beyond belief.   The'  government   spends,, a .largo   amount  of ,  money'every-year in  its statistical   bu-*  ream  but,the  information .which  it  col-,  lates. is "only adrop iii  the bucket com-*  pared.to that secured by the huge army r  of insurance investigators.

The victim is suddenly aroused by an intense anguish in the chest,  the breathing is accompanied by a  loud wheezing, the face becomes  flushed, and bathed in perspiration;  he gasps for air, believing that each  moment may be his last. After  these paroxysms, "which may last for.  hours, the patient usually falls asleep to arise next day weak, languid  and  debilitated.  Dr. Chase's trea.tment for asthma  consists in the combined use of two  of his remedies, Dr. Chase's Syrup of  Linseed and Turpentine and Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food. Asthma is a  nervous disease and the attacks are  brought on by some irritation of the  nerves along the air passages. These  nerves are soothed and .'.quieted and  immediate relief afforded'->to the patient by the use of Dr. Chase's Syrup  of L/inseed and Turpentine. In.fact  asthma is frequently thoroughly cured by the use of tins- remedy alone,  as is evidenced by the "testimonial  quoted below.  In most cases, however, it is found  advisable to combine the two remedies, Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed  and Turpentine and Dr. Chase's Nerve  Food. The former as a local treatment acting directly on the bronchial  tubes and air passages, and the latter as a nervo restorative to build  up and strengthen the whole nervous^  system. It is confidently believed  there is rib ' treatment extant that.is  so perfectly successful in the cure of  asthma as the combined use of these  two  great remedies.  Mrs. George Budden, Putnamville,  Ont., says:���������"I feel it my duty to recommend Dr. Chase's, Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine, as I had the asthma very bad; could get nothing to  do me any good. A friend of mine  persuaded me to try this remedy, as  he had tried it, and it proved successful. I tried it and it cured me.  I am thankful today to say I am a  well woman through the use of this  remedy. I keep it in the house all  the time' and would not be without  it."  Dr. Chase's family remedies are for  sale at all dealers, or from Edman-  son, Bates & Co., Toronto.  wm  i  m  y*t  ill  ill  1  m  ���������IV.  ���������;.- Jfi'  i  n  rr*rrvrrxrx'yA>~mntr fV  $'  MISSED.  ���������������������������. ^  The daj s are not so dreary,  And.the hours faster g-o;  The.-waiUng- is Jess weary,  We all liave found it so,        . ,  '  And it keeps the tears from thronging,  '.  -As far from friends we roam,  To know a dear one's longing  To bid us "welcome liomc.",; "  If parting be* "sweet sorrow,"'  .

"Good afternoon.?' said Sylvia timidly'.  .    ' "Yes," said the illustrator. , "Well?"  Sylvia "thought   his   voice   was, rough,  - and yet there seemed to be. a softer tone  .running through it. His hair was rough,  too, and his black eyes were sharp behind their glasses.  ���������   "If you  are  Mr. ,Freneau," .said  Syl-,  J,vin,' "I want you,to do me a favor."  The great artist snorted slightly. ���������  "Autograph?"  , ,    "No." said Sylvia.

Then  the left arm, was  raised,  and  the  ,   hand, seemed "to  beckon  to her.     Sylvia  ' walked   forward   until   she   reached   the  drawing board.  "Sit down."   Sylvia took the chair that  stood close" by the artist and waited.    In  a moment or two he leaned back and laid  '  his pen down.   Then he looked around at  his visitor.  ' '.'Oh."yes," he said.

Mr. Ereneau," she  said, "to ask you to illustrate a story I  have written."  The   great   artist   gave   another  little  snort and stared verv hard at her.  "So?" he said.  "Yes," continued iSylvia.    "I have the  story with me."  "Well?"  "Shall I begin at the beginning?" asked  Sylvia. /  "Yes." replied the artist.    "It can't be  very far back."   And he actually smiled.  "Well," said Sylvia.  "I've'always had  a, taste for scribbling���������that's  what they  called it when I was little���������and mamma  encouraged    me   and    all    my    teachers  thought I showed signs of talent.   I wrote  little   sketches   instead   of   compositions,  and  once   I  wrote  a   dialogue  that  was  given several times in the school.    I love  ���������to  write,  but   I  didn't think  of  writing  anything serious until mamma died, and  then I knew her long sickness cost papa  so much that I felt-that I must try and  earn something to help him.    So 1  wrote  this story.     You see.  the editor  of'The  El   Dorado offers  prizes,  $100  down  to  $10, and  I thought if  I could only get a  small one it would be a help and a great  encouragement.    And the editor said that  illustrated stories would receive the preference,  and   I   knew all  about  your*pic-  tures and admired them so much, and papa one day showed me where j'our studio  was,  and   I  thought  if you   would  make  the pictures it would help the story ever  so much, and if we get a prize 1 will give  you   half."     And.   .being   quite   out   of  breath. Sylvia stopped.  "Indeed!" said the great artist. lie  looked away from her to the drawing  board; he picked up. his pen: he hesitated; he laid it down again; he looked at  his watch. ,  "Let's hear, your story." he said.  for a few moments. His gaze was fixed  upon Sylvia's flushed face. The excitement of reading the story baa" sent a  warm wave of color across her usually  pale cheeks. Her big blue ej'es regarded  .him expectantly. "It's a pretty story,"  he continued.  ( "Oh. thank you!" Sylvia cried.  '" "Let me see," mused the artist.' "We  might stand the hero, under a 'great toadstool, with the mischievous fairy looking  down at' him over the edge���������like this."  And with swift fingers he dexterously  sketched the scene.  "Oh, oh!" gasped' Sylvia as the picture  grew beneath his hand.  ' "There,"* said the artist, with a finishing stroke, "th-^t will do for No. 1. For  the second picture we will have the hero  in his knightly armor charging.across the'  enchanted drawbridge of Castle Gingerbread, with the imprisoned princess looking from a window���������like this."

Sylvia sat  'down at a little distance and waited.  "There," be presently said as he drew  back, "how does this suit you?".  Sylvia arose' and came to him. >  "Oh, oh," they are splendid!" she cried  as she looked down at the, drawings.  "They fit into tlie story like���������like bricks  in a wall!"    " '  '"And is the story quite ready to go?"  "Yes," said Sylvia eagerly.    "It looks  beautiful, too, in typewriting, and I have  gone  all  over it  for  mistakes.     Is your  name plain enough on the   pictures?"  "I think so," laughed the artist.    '  "Because 1 wrote that the illustrations  were   by   Philip   Freneau,"  said' Sylvia,  "and your name should be very plain."  "I fancy0 they'll, find it," laughed the  great artist. "And now to pack up this  precious bundle.".- ,        '   . '  He found a big envelope, and the story,  the pictures and the letter were carefully  inserted. Then Sylvia gravely wrote the  address. ���������    '  "And now," said the, artist, with a  pleasant twinkle, "I don't believe it will  be worth while to send any return postage. We'll take our, chances <on that.  What do you say?" ''   .       ' - ' *  "I will do just as you think best," said'  Sylvia a  little doubtfully.     "You" know  the, editor says  that  if you   want your  manuscript returned you  must send  the  postage to pay for the mailing."  ���������   "We'll take fate by the throat this time  and risk our all on a single throw," said  the. artist..  "There, you take the package  around the corner to the  postoflice station, have it weighed and .put on the uee-  essary postage, and luck go with it."  "If we are lucky enough to get even the  smallest prize," said Sylvia as she paused  with her hand on the doorknob.'"it will  be $5 apiece, you know."  And- the childless man laughed and  then sighed as' the girl's bright face  passed from bis .sight.  * * *���������.*'* * 0  Three weeks later she rushed in upon  him in a whirlwind of delight.  "Guess!" she cried, - holding a letter  high above her head.  "Not ten.'" he gasped in pretended agitation.  "A hundred!" she answered; "the first  prize���������and he sent me a flattering letter���������  and a draft payable to me! And I got it  cashed, and here is the money, all in $10  bills! But wait." Her voice sank a little. "I want to tell you what papa said.  He said that he was afraid I didn't appreciate the great service you had done  me in making those lovely pictures. He  said he was quite sure that only half the  prize money was not at all a fair equivalent for your share in the .work. And���������  and he said it- was a���������a great presumption on my part to ask you to help me."  Something arose in the girl's throat, and  she turned her face away. "And so I  want you to take, all the money.' The  glory is quite enough for me." And she  laid the roil of bills before him:  He pushed it back. v   .  "Little woman,'" he said.

Of  course everything ended agreeably, and  the coming alliance of the hero, who was  necessarily a prince, with the charming  maiden, naturally a princess, was pleasingly hinted at.

It is at this season  of ,the year that thousands of people,  men, women and children, are to be seen  catching turtles, hunting pearls, collecting mussel'shells, lishing on the sand  bars,' capturing water snakes or dragging  submergedvwalnut' logs from the water.  Hundreds of shanty boats taking fish  and bartering all sorts of goods with the  natives ply from one landing to another.  The 'river people are satisfied with no  other mode' of 'existence and rarely ever  , abandon its seduclive charm.  The   Tennessee   river, is   the   greatest  fresh  water turtle stream iu  the  world,  and   the   Cumberland   is  famous   for  ils  prolific turtle fields.
