Subsequently Mr- Rogers telephoned to a,.local .paper that the  white fishermen would be armed  .just the same as the,Japs.  A member of the canners* committee, in reply to this remark of,  Mr Rogers, stated that the canners  knew for a fact that the men in the  patrol. boats manned by white  strikers, had been armed when they  were patrolling the river in an attempt to drive back the Japs.  Members of ,the canners' executive say that the statement made to  newspapers, that the committee are  favorable to a suggestion made by  Government Labor.

This is kept up for an hour or two. until the men are reeking with perspiration and tbe white designs on their  brown skins are sadly marred. Meanwhile logs have been heaped on the  fire until it lights up the inclosure like  day.

Then, remarkable aa  it may sound,' they dance on these  coals until they are extinguished, then  fall on their knees, fighting the fire  vvitli their hands, in a perfect frenzy,  slapping it; pounding it, putting dirt on  it until it is entirely put out.

If one judged from the mothers' congresses and the 'lectures, articles and  books on the subject of the rearing and  training of children, it would seem that  in no other era have women been so intent upon fulfilling properly ' the duties  of parenthood. It might be taken also  as a tacit confession, that the mother instinct is not inborn in every woman and  therefore that which does not come from  the heart must'be learned from books.  There is no intention here to disparage  such a movement. In some" quarters it  has been, overdone and has become accordingly ridiculous, but it has its uses  and has doubtless been productive ' of  good in awakening certain women, to.a  moi-e thoughtful1 view of their responsibilities. ,  .   The mere fact of bringing young into  the world  does not  bestow the  mother  instinct.   Many a childless wife,' many a  lonely   spinster,   has   the   true   mother  heart that may be lacking in the mother  of   ten   children.   ' Dumb   animals   even  .vary greatly in this respect.    There are  dogs and cats just as averse to the duties  of maternity as any frivolous fine lady.  One  hen will rear successfully rall the  chicks', she   has   brought1  off   the   nest,  while another in the same flock will lose  her   whole'' brood   successively,! by   carelessness   and'' neglect    'One   topknoted  denizen of ther poultry yard,.afforded a  curious   study   to   the   observant  ,itShe  was   completely   wanting   in   that   protective instinct toward' her young' which  ,is usually t so" strongly developed  in'the*  hen.

Did the Baby Reason?  The kindergartners say it is a growing opinion that it is near the age of 8  that the child begins to see the end to  be gained in contradistinction to something to be done, says James Champlin  Fernald in The Atlantic.  The assumption is not true of real  children. The present writer knew, for  instance, a little cherub of two years'  terrestrial experience who found the  cat in his hicrh chair after he had left  Tapioca.  This elegant and delicate starch )n  the produl't of a plant that is cultivated  very extensively  in the  Malay  peninsula, where its culture is almost  entirely in the hands of the Chinese.  The tubers of the plant (Manihot util-  isima),  which   weigh  on  an  average  from 10 to 25 pounds, are first scraped  and then carefully washed, after which  they are reduced to a pulp by being  passed between rollers.    This pulp is ,  carefully washed and shaken up with  abundance of water until the felcula  separates and passes through a very  fine sieve into a tub placed beneath.  The  flour  so  obtained  is   repeatedly  washed and then placed on mats and.  bleached by exposure to the sun and  air.    It Is finally converted into the  pearl tapioca  of commerce by  being'  placed in a crude shaped frame covered with canvas.   It is slightly moistened and subjected to a rotary motion,  by which means it is granulated.   It is  next dried in the sun and finally over  the fire in an iron pan greased with  vegetable tallow and is then ready for  the market.  Before and' After.

But the truth ip^any^sys-  teni for the training of, children, must ber  a, very'elastic one'and vary'to suit tho  individual.  The-mother's sympathy-gives  her wisdom to deal with diveVse%teinpera-  ments and dispositions,v and-if 'there .is  anything in these alien to her own-nature  her love bridges the difference���������that love  which   follows  her  offspring  no' matter  how far they may go, so that ,her heart,  as Mine, deSevigne expressed it, is "always on the highroads."   If a child of  hers is crippled in mind or body, homely  of countenance, dull of wit or broken ,in  fortune, around that one is her affection  protectingly cast, because he needs it the  most.   Her heart is the unfailing refuge,  the sanctuary that cannot be violated, the  one place of all where even the erring and  the   defeated   will   not   be,  judged,'   but  loved.   And though  all r"the rest"_of "her  children may be happy, honoi-ed'and"successful,   l.er .love   is   forever  wandering-  away after the unfortunate who. has fail-'  ed and fallen short of'her teachings���������out  into the cold, through the. rain and snow,  over the dreary stretches of' the highway,  like a beseeching angel pleading with him  to turn homeward.   But. whether she is a  happy or unhappy, parent, her love is not,  like the passionate ;egbtism-of the animal,  limited only to her own. "For their sake,  her heart is tender toward all childhood,  and her pity embraces the little oneslwho  are orphaned  hnd. uncherished.   *    *   *  In one of Coleridge's poems he tells a  strange story about a woman -who set her  affections upon her daughter's suitor and  finally invoked a curse-upon them both  because  they' had   balked   her   passion.  Thenceforth    nothing/prospered     with  them. They were beset by misfortunes of  all kinds, the curse being so active because  A mother is a mother still.  The holiest thing alive.   -  The more modern view, however, la  that there is nothing holy in maternity  per se. It is the individual who ennobles  or degrades it, and the woman who shows  herself unworthy of motherhood is not to  be an object of honor simply because she  has brought forth children. There are  women, and mothers, who actually dislike  children, and, apart from these unpleasant paradoxes, some there are who love  their children accordingly as the latter  faiinister to their pride and vanity. The  jeleverest and handsomest are the favorites, because they; reflect glory upon the  self seeking parent, and the less creditable ones are pushed into corners and kept  in the shade as much, as possible. .This is  Jrather a man's than a woman's way of  loving, and yet there are families in  (which the tenderness comes all from, -the  paternal side, and the children are actually "mothered" by. the . father. Then  there are the mothers who in the pursu-.  ance of. some fixed idea thwart their  children, stunt their aspirations and prevent the gradual unfolding of their natures.  "Etre savant, e'est quelquechose," says  a French writer; "etre tres bon, e'est encore mieux"���������and one fancies that this  is true where mothers are concerned.  Does any child think more tenderly of his  mother because she has written a remarkable book, painted a fine picture or  excelled in music? Many a woman'has  made such efforts in art, spurred on by  the thought of her children, and in be  coming an artist she does not cease to be  a mother. Yet, after all, these are not  the things we recall' when .we look back  at childhood. What we do remember is  how our mother mended the garmenti^we  tore, healed our bruises, wiped away oux <  tears, was glad of our little pleasures,  sang us to sleep at evening and soothed ''  us Avhen we woke in the night crying  with the terror of bad dreams. Perhaps  the, woman who did'all this for us was  gifted and brilliant, but ,it is her goodness, the inexhaustible tenderness of her  mother love, that lives in memory and  fcnakes us homesick, even in old age, for  that unfailing solace which' elsewhere we  hare not found.���������New Orleans Times-^  Democrat.

Hearing that, Mr.<- T." S.  Forrester,
of this city, a resident    of - the   Fortune Block, had-recently made a marvellous ''recovery to' health after years
of suffering,     during which time'   he
h'ad  endured     tortures  and had  several times .been given up by medical
men  a's .being beyond hope,   a    Free
Press "representative called" upon him
to   obtain     particulars     of    the  case
which had battled medical skill,   r
' '"The    trouble from   which   1 was
suffering,"  said Mr.  Forrester,  '|was
the result of a gunshot wound which'
I received  during the American civil
"war.   The bullet entered my leg. This
caused an aneurism to form in J, the
groin, and also' caused 'a swelling for
the last;eightltyears,  and'about two'
years ago I 'had a "severe attack' of
grip,   and'also  had  a heart >trouble
known, as mitraljregurgitation', caused  through  an imperfect valve,    the
result-of a,vstrairi received in .wrestling.-;I had" a severe'cough after the'
attack : .of grip,'- and  "the, -strain.' of
that seemed to break' up the compen-
tion   'and -caused' dilatation '.of  the
hearty-which'is considered, incurable..
All treatment for  it is., merely'palliative and/there has never > been a^case
known '"where ."" compensation, J'once'
broken ' 'down t   lias been ."'taken.. up
again. -J One *6f' the  concomitants ','' of
dilatation Js* dropsy, "and dropsy -set
'in; - with   me !very badly.' My'body
was; swollen  sb~ bafclly that I - could
not   get into   a-suit of clothes..   -In
fact   1'could.   nbtJv:find a suit'^lafge"
enough in the city//1- was tapped'for
dropsy, and the accumulation of fluid;
was so rapid" that it ��� was - thought I
would have to be", tapped  again" ten
days 'later"   I  felt v very ��� uncomfortable,  but-did   not!' get tapped,   -but
found there w^as^no water in the cavity,  but  an effusion  under 'the skin.
Then'" my leg fbroke  out?   and- I sat
.with my, foot in a (Washbasin    for
five months^with  the fluid   'dripping
out, ^and it'"ran so. rapidly that my"
wife had to,'empty-,the basin twice a
day.,  The'    dropsical condition'^ was
alleviated,  and  then'ulceration   ^set
in% and. my <^ leg "was swollen Cand "ulcerated''' from'' thev toes ��� 'toi'the knees
andf'the calf .of, my leg measured 27
inches   round. * ',One ,ulcer  was   fiilly^
an inch.deep, ^ifobody expected   "me
to * g-et - better. "   Nothing �� seemed to'
benefit "the leg,  but after'a time/it
started" to heal a little,   and I went
out to  work,    but    soon came back.
In 1899,  two local physicians -> gave
me one month'to-live.   Subsequently
Dr. Devine told me I^harl not'   three"
weeks  on earth, and again later. on
he  said   one     evening - that 'I  would
not   see   daylight.    I   realized   myself
that I was pretty low at the  time.
I could not    lie     down   for  over    a
year,   nor  sit in  an  arm  chair,   but
sat  and   slept  in   a     straight-backed
chair,   with my headr resting 'on the
table.    I also    went to the hospital,
but  came   back  home    shortlyi after,
but was always afraid to lie in bed.
About  two months, ago a friend t   of
mine called  in  and  was  telling.  me
about   Oxydonor,'  and  told  me   of  a
case which it had benefited.    A    few-
days later he' brought one over,   and
from the ��time ,1   put.it    on the leg
commenced to look as if it were healing.   It is now healing very rapidly,"
and is greatly improved.   My general
condition and appetite is good,    and
all this has taken place since I commenced .putting on the 'Oxydonor.   I
suffered fearful  tortures with my leg.
The  irritation was  intense,   nnd 'one
night I felt like cutting it off,     and
would have done so had I '.hought I
could have lasted until I could have
had the^ stump dressed, as the    pain
would have' been less     than' Lhat    I
was then suffering.    I consider it incredible that a man could .suffer as I
have done and live through it, but I
have a wonderful vitality and power
of resistance.   I consider that my recovery   was a miracle and    was the
direct    work  of    God  in     answer to
prayer, but think that the Oxydonor
was the instrument  of His grace."

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local "applications, as they cannot reach the-
diseased portion of the ear. There"���>is only one
way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the ��� mucous lining of the
Eustachian tube. When this tube ge*3 inflamed you have a rumbling sound of imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness
is the result, and unless the inflammation can
be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed.forever; nine cases out. of ten. are caused by ca-'
tarrb., which is nothing but an inflamed con*
dition of the mucous surfaces.   ���

Again, did Professor Jules owe the  ���������preservation of his life to the quick  wit and ready hand of' his companion  a in arms,'since, but for his hasty descent from a perpendicular that murderous -weapon of a South African  warrior must have passed through  his  body. '  Hastings realized that the  crisis he  ���������had-feared was  upoa'hiin,  since their  '.pursuers were on deck, filled with the  .  -zeal   of  warfare,   and  determined     to  1     accomplish  their  destruction.   ,  , lie  was  a>  ,man  > of <   action,   this  'American, and even though tlie   con-  ���������dition of affairs seemed next to hope-  "     'less, such a thing as surrender to the  ��������� '-inevitable never entered his  mind.  -This  is  characteristic  of-the Anglo-  ���������   "     Saxon   blo"od���������a  grim     determination  ' -to go down ."with colors  Hying  It has     bean     made  historical   'on  "   many a bloody field of battler in Eng-  '   'land,   Scotland,   Amenta,   yes,' wher-  - -ever :the  English   language   is  spoken  throughout the world.

Already dusky figures could be seen  Parting  from tree to tree,  and T-Jast-  i ~'*blngs, knowing the value of ('me, lost  unoi a second in chschai gino, his gun.  Tlie  report   of  the  Winchester  .secm-  ��������� ed to arouse the echoes oi Hades���������  ���������from c\ cry quarter .there arose the  ���������most fiendish of yells, Ai\d oi<o who  'had never  heard  these brittio  cries  of  the"  savacre  MakaJakas     before  might  well be pardoned for belie\ing  that a  /-legion  of   black  fiends     from  Tophet,  ��������� led by Mephistopheles himself, had  1 burst the barriers of the Tnterno, and  -sought new victims on earth.  There was ho tune for exercising  yaiiy* deliberation in the line of judgement���������to strike speedily and often,  ���������with the most fatal result was their  tone hope, and even thai held out but  feint chances of success.  Hastings  was  crouching  there,     almost flat     on    his face,     behind    the  heterogeneous bundles -which     the sa-  ���������-vant  had  so  carefully and   solicitously piled  up.    They promised, at least,  ���������to  form  some  sort   of a   barrier     for  the wretched  fugitives,     though     the  ���������.professor   when  making  his  collection  had never  dreamed  to what base use  they -might eventually be put.  The  rapid     detonation   of  the  Winchester told that it was in the hands  ���������of one who knew how (o utilize its  wonderful repeating qualities to the  utmost, and the fiendish shouts of the  black warriors no longer expressed  only rage, but pain and consternation  as well.  In  tlie midst of the fusilade came a  'much   heavier   discharge,  very   similar  to   the  boom   of   the   Dutch     settlor's  yager  or  elephant gun.        .    '   '.  'strange   to   say,   the .professor   had.  ��������� insisted.upon arming himself: with one  - of   these  heavy  though- effective weapons,   which  appeared.; the'-more' ridiculous when    the    rather     undersixe'd  stature of the fighting Caul' was tak-  .. en into consideration.  This mammoth gun had always  -been an object of extreme solicitude  ���������to Jules. So long as they had porters, a .stalwart' black had usually  trotted at his heels bearing the  yager.; but of late it had become  quite a burden to Hastings,who more  than once contemplated the. feasibility of quietly allowing it- to sink Into  some "drift" they were crossing.  Only on a few occasions had. the  learned savant, deigned to discharge  his gun; and it was always an open  question in the mind of Hastings  whether almost equally disastrous results in the rear were not apt to follow such an explosion as before its  ���������muzzle.  Therefore,       ������..ien  -the     thunderous  ��������� crash of the elephant gun sounded so  Ciosu to his ears, he experienced something like a .sensation of awe, and  half expected to find the form of the  gallant Frenchman hurled across', his  back. i  "What luck?" he bellowed, so that  his words might be heard above the  awful clamor.--  "It is well," came in the high-  pitched voice of, tlie professor, who  had evidently taken the precaution  to brace himself ere pulling the trigger.  , So ' Hastings, again applied'himself  tof the task of distributing the remainder of his leaden' pills^ with a  discrimination that was .niluenced ,by'  the audacity of the assailants; and  cince little of his ammunition went to  waste, it can be set down as positive  that his wonderful nerve served him  as faithfully in this crisis as it had  in times gone by.  Brief though , the* time that' had  elapsed since the advent of the first  black warrior on the scene, those of  the enemy-"who fortunately escaped  the fire of the compatriots had rushed in close enough to discharge their  own weapons toward tla spot where  a cloud of powder smoke told pi occupancy.  ,' Some were armed with guns of  modern make, for long contact with  the gold and diamond hunters had  made the Malabele and their sable  ���������-Hies familiar with such engines of  destruction, and while possibly the  owners might have 'no just claim to  the title of sharpshooters, still ' they  were able to keep pumping at their;  engines of war, v and., send a swarm of  bullets toward the 'center of the disr  turbance, , that' hurtled and hissed'  about the ears of the besieged; with  tiie noisy venom, of ang"ry( bees.^  Numerous war spears' also" '.came  singing through space, nor' was the  singular whirr of the,deadly Zulu as-  segia unheard.    ,,  k  Hastings had been wounded in several-places,  but, lione. of  them    were  serious cuts, and in the.fever of battle he hardly, took notice of the fact.  Hearing a thud close at "his elbow  he turned his head to see a Makalaka,  spear pinning poor Jules to the tree;  but his feeling  of, horror , -was    dissipated    upon ���������  discovering     that     the  squirming  professor   had  really     not  been seriously injured, since ,the weapon had     only  passed.'  through  " the  slack of his, garments., '  .

Perhaps Rex had some vague idea  that .they might creep oft, thanks to  the fnemdly smoke that hugged the  vicinity, and the gathering shades of  dusk.      ���������  Be that as it may, he was given no  time to put the inspiration into practical play. Perhaps "the undaunted  Gaul would have utterly refused to  have -deserted the scientific treasures  of his collection, to which he was so  lirmly wedded. ,        \  Before Rex could begin to shape a  plan for the future there came a fre6h  burst of awful yells, and through the  smoke sprang the figures of the Makalaka warriors, brandishing their arms  and looking in the full panoply of  their war dress like demons.  Thus, in an instant, the battle had  become a .hand to hand affair, where  fierce blows were exchanged. where  the dischaiye of a firearm was muffled by the-fact of its being pressed  against a human form, where two  whites, back to back, were pitted  against a horde of cruel and merciless  foes,  eager to drink their blood.  The sword of Damocles hung suspended by a single thread.  So  the  lives  of  these  twain  seemed  on   the \ery     brink���������the  passage     of  one minute would   mark their  transition   from   this   world  into   the  next.

American industry is playing havoc  with all time-honored institutions.'' At  one time the dentists formed an ,important guild in China, but in the past  30 years hundreds of bright young  Mongolians have picked up more or  less knowledge of the profession from  American practitioners abroad and are  now doing business according to modern scientific methods. In San Francisco the new school has almost driven  the old one to the wall.. Nevertheless  ,three or four of the latter pursue the  calling in the same manner as their ancestors did,for a thousand years. At  least one of them visits New York every year and stays two or three months  until all of his customers have bad  their teeth put "in order.'!-    * -\  His work is curiously primitive. , For  extracting he ^relies upon .his fingers,.  and with these he does marvels.   With  .thumb and forefinger he will pull a,  bicuspid or a molar on which-an American operator employs a powerful forceps. - This dexterity is the result of  years of practice'.'' From  boyhood to  manhood  he  is-trained  to  pull  pegs,  driven into a wooden board.   Three and  four times arday, a half hour at a time,  he drives pegs Into the holes of .his1  practice board v'andfthen pulls them, out  again.   He lifts in similar'fashion teeth  to which'are attached heavy"1 weights.  This, special training changes' the as-r  pect of the hand.   The spare flesh vanishes,, and the' blood vessels,^ and tendons seem to double in size.   The forearm grows in girth "and becomes as  hard as wood.'   The apprenticeship, period lasts two years.    At the end the  student has a finger grip which is a  wonder.   Its strength is equivalent to  a> lifting power of 300 and even 400  pounds.   Besides extracting he cleans  teeth   with a  preparation  containing  ground cuttlefish, using .brushes made  of split bamboo." For toothache he employs opium, peppermint oil, cinnamon  oil and clove oil. .Sometlhies, though  rarely,"he fills' teeth/ but'does It so Ig-  abrantly  that  the  filling' comes,- out  within a few'months. . - *        r. - *  Through   all'  his" practice   runs,1 a  laughable element of superstition.  Ac-,  cording, to  his;system,  all  toothache  and other dental woes are produced' by  ���������tooth worms; " The nerve pulp is such  a worm;and. Is  shown to  a* patient  rwheneyer ^he decay is great ^enough to^  permit of .its exhibition'.' ������"." To; satisfy'  others'.he "carries ,about in a. pocket  some white grubs about as large as  an ant.    When he extracts a painful  tootti, he uses a little legerdemain and  shows the sufferer one of' the";white  grubs as the cause.of all his, pain.' For  neuralgic toothache he employs counter  Irritation and  sedatives,   rubbing the  gums, cheeks and neck just below the  condyle with a mixture of laudanum  and peppermint oil and pinching the  ���������kin until the blood is almost forced  through the pores.    He is not highly  regarded by his countrymen, his social  position being half way between those  of a barber and a laborer.    In New  York be gets 25 cents for removing a  tooth and for other services nayments  in proportion.

Ultimately lie had brought her  to London, to this very house, promising  to use what influence he had in her behalf; :������������������������������������    - ' ��������� .    .';.'���������     ,- '    '  But suddenly those 'ambitious schemes  of hers were shattered^ again. Sickness  struck her down. For months she had  lain' in this room, weak and spiritless.  Only Rupert's daily visits had kept her  enamored of life. To ever act again  seemed an impossibility!  But now, through a' few chance words,  all the old restless eagerness took hold of  her afresh.^- The path of fame stood disclosed1 anew, and she longed to tread it  rwith an all consuming desire.  Suddenly, amid 'her reverie a gust of.  ���������wind" slammed the'open lattice against  the wall. She turned, startled, and with  a hysterical cry fell prone upon the bed.  A minute later footsteps wore heard  upon* the ^tairs. The room door was  opened and the goodwife who tended her  entered. A tall figure peered in at her  heels and whispered, '"May I come in ?"  Then, seeing, "Heavens!" he exclaimed.  "What's, this?",and lushing to the bedside' took the senseless woman in his  arms.  .   <"Susan, Susan, speak to me, dearest!  "Tis I, Rupert.    Speak, speak!" ;-  He chafed her hands',and bathed  her  forehead from a bottle snatched from an  adjacent table.  Her,eyelids slowly 'unclosed, aud she  i smiled wanly. .    . ���������  "What is the matter, dear heart? You  ���������tax your strength too much in rioiug.  'Why"- ',..���������"  "Oh, Rupert! I am but a'little weak.  I am recovered now. I know' I am. A  few more quiet days and I shall "move in  the world again. This connucmoiit is  kilb'ng(me. I must breathe the fiesh air.  see the faces,of the crowd and���������and hear  the clamor of the audience again."  ��������� "Nay, nay, Susan, you are too weak,  and you know there is no need to play  again so long as you grant mo tlie honor  of accepting my help., Become my wife,  dearest, and we will go away into the,  country and see if the meadows and the  ��������� woods will give you strength."  "I leave not London," she answered,  "till I tread old Drury's,boards/' I would  play,'Rupert. Oh, grant'me this! ' Get  me leave to act Ophelia,there, and I will  marry'you on the morrow'of that day-  aye, whether it be that-London deiidea  or' takes me to its arms.

His previous assertions concerning "the little provincial hussy" were  ��������� looked" upon as inspired, and every foolish  thing he now  uttered  was' barkened  to  with open mouthed  attention and  wonderment. ;  ,    - *  . '  .Susan, though still troubled with occa-  sidlial fits of faintness, studied her part  vWith astonishing application.    Oiten she  .awoke in the middle of* tbe_night and,  "a"i'6s6"and rehearsed her scenes, until carried away beyond , remembrance of surroundings she forgot'to subdue her voice  any longer and spoke the lines with all  the feeling they really demanded.  But as the night of her debut drew  nearer she became quieter and appeared  less high strung. Only to Rupert, duiing  the long hours they had together, would  she keep saying, with deep and soulful  enthusiasm: "I shall be a great success,  Rupert.    I know it!   I feel it!'*     .  At last the eventful night arrived, and  .Drury Lane was packed in every available corner. The beaus had taken an  hour longer over their toilets, the denizens of the pit sported libbons in their  hats and the whole atmosphere bespoke  anxious expectancy. The only regret  was that the part of Ophelia had been  chosen for the debut, and not a character  of more prominence and passion.  The earlier parts of "Hamlet" were  hardly listened to. and ever and anon  cries of "Hasten." "Ophelia, Ophelia."  issued from the ciowd.  But from the first entrance of Ophelia  every one was mute, enrapt. On the instant the house felt that a new genius  had indeed found admittance to old  Dairy's stage.  Her grace and charm won every heart,  her mellifluous diction sounded like'mush!  and her expressive, beautiful face impressed one and all with grave and pure  admiration.  Rupert sat in a box. his heart full (o  overflowing, with a keen joy that had  never before been his. gazing intently at;  .the woman- he loved so ardently. He had  waited patiently all the long, long months  since he had;known her without decrease  of love.  And now at last he was within sight of  supreme happiness! On the morrow she  was to be his wife.    ..    .<������������������'���������  As the mad scene drew near, the audience, exhibited a still more lively interest  in the debutante, and when at last she  came on the stage as the demented Ophelia the whole house burst forth' into ap-'1'  plause.; .. ...'.

Gradually  she  seemed   to  become  more  distraught, until in one last terrible'cli  max she gave vent'to a frenzied  shriek  and fell upon the stage.  The audience 'sat bieathless, a pallor  on every cheek, and none dared applaud.  Rupert had left the box and gone to,  her 'tiring room before the conclusion of  the scene. A feeling of uneasiness which  he could not throw _ off disturbed him.  He had never known such acting. Yet  was that not cause for joy? A noise was  heard at the door of the room as he smilingly reassured himself.  He jumped up and flung it open.
