Ice cream, coffee and  cakes were served and a short  musical programme terminated a  very pleasant evening.

Leave your  trunk;  Minna will pack it for you."  Lucie sat down silentlj- at the window and looked out into the desert-  ���������ed coui-l-yard. .Mademoiselle was  walkincr slowly toward the garden  ���������gate; she held up a light-red parasol  and gazed reproachfully at the  young  baroness's  windows.  '".Bad weather," said' the latter,  smiling. "Phc is beside herself with  rage at having to stay at home.

"He will be taken good care of,'j  Gaid she; "he is going to breakfast  , with grandpapa; and two hunters  together, with a glass of wine���������  You need riot be afraid; he will not  .do anything to you, Lucie."  A smile came over Lucie's face too.  'She knew her brother-in-law when  "he had eaten well, 'and still better,  Jiad drunk ' well;' it used to be a  source of great amusement to her.  "Ah, if Mathilda knew that!" she  said.  "That  he  is   breakfasting,   Lucie?"  "He talks so much then," explained Lucie.  "That is generally thought to be a  virtue."  "But he is good, Hortense, except���������"  "Except what?" said the latter,  \teasingly.  "He has .come to fetch me."  "We will send him home alone,  -child."  Hour after hour passed, and at  last heavy steps came along the corridor. Hortense opened the door  herself in respc������ise to a tremendous  knock, and the Oberforster Kemmert  stepped in looking as happy as possible on the arm of the good old  Herr "*-*-'*������������������'".

Well, inarch! pack up.  put your curtains up  ���������room."  "He is only in jest, my little fraulein," cried the baron, and his voice  -cracked as he laughed. "He known  ���������very well that���������'you are going to  ������������������.travel with my granddaughter.  ".Komniort, don't spoil the child's  pleasure."  "George," said Lucie, humbly, almost crushed under the weight of  the heavy hand -with which he had  patted 'her shoulder," George, for-  ,give me.    I could not help doing it."  '"Help doing what? A fine reason  ���������that! Your sister has been howling  like a wolf." continued the Oberforster, in the same loud voice. "We  ���������thought you were cared for, and now  you begin with such foolishness.  2*7ow don't look so, you little goose.  Mathilda "will get over it. See that  -you get some one else to please you  better. Of course, we all think alike  ���������that you are making a great mistake���������btit women, Herr Baron, the  women!" he said, turning toward  the latter, "ancl particularly the  Walters, they have the devil in them.  Why, my "wife���������this little fool's sis-  tor���������was once going to"���������here he  broke out into such a hearty, good-  natured laugh that the baron and  Hortense could not help joining him  ���������"to     dismiss     me,"   he  continued,  Mathilda has  again  in  your  "because on our polterabend j vras-  pardon, my lady-r-somewhat exhilarated.

"Why, yes, certainly I have. The  old lady was raging like a wounded wild,cat. But the poor fellow���������"  he repeated. "Well, I am going to  him now; I have invited him to dine  with me at the Golden Crown.

Farewell, Herr "Baron; as J. was  telling you just now, his majesty  made fifteen capital shots at tlie  .last hunt, and the duke riot many  less." - "    ' '   '  He pinched Lucie's-check again,  and left the room with tlie old gentleman. They-could still hear" his  loud talking and'f laughing /until he  reached tlie hall  door.  When he left the'court-yard ,a  . strange stillness seemed to fill both  the house and room. Hortense and  Lucie stood at the window.  '"Now'all is over: the" bridges are  burned behind me." said the girl,  turning around ,and putting her arm  round  tlie  young baroness's neck.  '.'Do not cry," said the latter, almost impatiently. ^ ".You will soon  think of other things when you are  once out of , 'this place. Indeed,  nothing in life  is worth crying,'or."  "I am not crying," returned Lucie.  And 'in fact her eyes were dry, but  they had an expression of utter mis-  cry* ' ' ,_  ' ���������   /  ,     CHAPTER XIV. '.  ';  Almost' a year had paesed. In a  handsomely furnished room in one  of the largest hotels in-Dresden a'  young girl woke one bright May  morning, looked-sleepily at the golden rays which peeped in 'through  the "partly closed blinds, and laid  back"      on     '    the pillow      again  with an expression of fatigue. In  doing so her hand' passed over the  dew-sprinkled leaves of-a bunch of  lilies of the valley, and,as she 'seized  it with, an expression of surprise, a  smile came 'over her face at the  sight of the' fragrant gift, and she  said, half "aloud: "Good Hortense!"  She knew what the gift meant; that  it was a year to-day- since she had  so unsuspectingly flown into the  coupe and into the arms of the young  baroness, who had since then held  her captive in  an invisible net.  Lucie lay motionless, the fragrant  flowers against her cheeks, and  thought over all that had happened  in all this time. She had always  been unwilling to allow her thoughts  to go back into the past; and if they  did take flight there; she would fight  bravely against them and oblige  them to look forward. At first it  had not* been hard ��������������������������� tho beautiful'  world out there, that wonderful land  of Ttaly, the thousand new strange  impressions; she had. lived at first  as if intoxicated, and every day-  would throw her arms round the  young baroness's neck and thank her  anew.  "I thank you for everything���������for  my freedom, for this glorious scenery;  can I ever repay you?"  Ah, yes! it was delightful to live  so. She loved Hortense so dearly,  and yet ��������� she did not know what  it was. made her heart so heavy, especially since she had been back in  Germany.  "There is a peculiar air the other  side of the Alps," an agreeable old  Englishman had said to her as they  wcre traveling for a little whilo in  the same railway carriage. "In my  parlor at home, next to a bright-  colored picture of the Bay of Naples,  I have hung 'Heidelberg Castle by  Moonlight,' dim and mysterious. I  think they describe the two countries ���������- one laughing with life, the  other full of earnest enthusiasm."  Ah, Lucie realized fully that.a peculiar air seemed to he about everything in Germany: but she did not  dare to mention it. She felt ashamed to acknowledge it to Hortense,  for Frau vonLowen always spoke  with unconcealed contempt of "sentimental moods," and said it was a  characteristic weakness of German  women in particular. On this point  they would never agree ��������� that the  girl now knew well ���������- or on several  other points. But was that to be  deplored? It was just the. difference  of their characters which held them  so closely together and made them  so dear*to each other. And if Lucie  yielded willinglj*- to the talented and  accomplished mind of the young baroness, she, on the other hand, had  acquired great influence over this  p-issionate nature. Hortense had got  into the habit now of referring everything to the young girl,  pro isa coN'ravi-xcD.j'  a  PREMATURE  BIRTH.  ,-��������� ���������"*&���������������.'!, -  She   ifiitted.

I   have  of ' these    sub-/  six  weeks,'with  Causes    and    Prove-ilion    of   Abortion   In  Domestic  Animals.  - i     - ,  Abortion is the -premature birth o'f  the foetus due to the nature of the  food given to the mother and 'to  other influences. It' varies in, importance according to"the stage, of  pregnancy. -If it occurs in the early  stages it may cause no apparent inconvenience to the animal, but later  on it may cause fever and a considerable-uneasiness, -and a yellowish  red discharge from the vagina, "ft is  liable to be brought on from injuries .of various( kinds, by bad food  and by excessive exposure to' eold.  It often results -from' debility. There  are enzo.-otic forms-of abortion caused by bacteria developing in the foetal membrane-, causing "it to break  down., It is* difficult, to determine,  how the bacteria get there; they are1  supposed to be introduced by the  bull. * "     * '     ,       ���������  There are several forms of blood  'discas-9 that will cause abortion. The  .most common cause is' feeding preg-'  nant animals food "lacking the element of nutrition, especially hay,  straw -and'cornstalks affected with  ergot, rust or smut.

Mcintosh,   University  of Illinois.  The Asrjyressivo JBlbow.  The angle at which woman carries  her elbow in abortive efforts to lift  her trailing, clinging skirts transforms it into a human puncher. With  calm unconsciousness, and as often  callous indifference, maid and matron punch their way to their goal,  be it at the bargain counter of the  departmental store or the crowded  shopping streets.  None can deny that the unavoidable annoyances of crowded thoroughfares to which people in large  cities are inured are sufficient tax  upon "patience and equanimity, and  why will women trebly increase these  by tho adoption of an inelegant  whim in the carriage of their  arms?  Because women have become infatuated with an inconvenient and slovenly mode of dress is no reason that  they should yoke it to another which  enkances its evil: but the crowning  iniquity and absurdity of tho street-  cleaning gown is the encroaching elbow which madame thrusts or digs  into every passerby, as she awkwardly clutches the clinging folds of.  her skirt in a vain effort to lift it  from the disease breeding filth of the  pavement.  For one originator of anything  there ..re a thousand imitators. Humanity is like a flock of sheep and  springs with the same eagerness to  follow its leader.  If you must wear trailing skirts at  times and seasons when they are out  of place, make them as little an offence as possible and lift them gracefully.

What I mean is that  your men and women always do the same  thing."  "Fall in love?"  "Exactly."  "There are lots of ways of doing it," I  suggested.

There  is something about her big eyes and the  little; droop, at the corners of-her mouth  which makes a fellow say* that sort of  thing, you know. v  "Now, remember our compact," she  warned me. We were pledged to a purely platonic friendship. ��������� I've had that sort  of thing in my tales, but it always broke  down.

I propose to leave out the love-  making, and you say that the interest  would be gone." She drummed upon the  table with her Gngers.  "Surely there is some other theme?"

The   railways    of   Canada . carried  twenty   million   passengers   last  year  of   which   they   killed   29  and  injured  176.    The    dramatic   interest    of    a  railway  accident   concentrates   public  attention     upon     the    comparatively  few killed and injured, but wo seldom  think  of  the  twenty  millions  carried  in safety.     The chances  that a traveler runs of being hurt arc .shown by  the  above    figures  to  be exceedingly  slight.

By IRENE ROWLAND  'Copyright, 1002, lay the  S. S. "McCiure Comp;  lpany      W  *'    Four men were seated round a moth  eaten green baize table when the Kid  1   flung  his  long legs  over  tbe window  sill and sat there nonchalantly kicking  his heels against the rough -walls cf  the  cabin.    It  -was  the   most   serious  moment of- the Kid's life, not excepting the one in'which his father had  sent him -west in disgrace.   To go west  ���������that had been something to look-forward to; but'to be sent back east again  in a worse state of disgrace than ever!  That was what they were planning  to do���������those four men around that lit-  '   , tie table, in the midst of which burned  a smelly  kerosene' lamp.    They ** were  passing sentence upon Jack Farley, the  Kid,of the party,  and he knew that  the verdict would be ''Guilty!" '  Collin Cutler was the first "to speak.  ���������Like the others, he was a college bred  man,' who had gone west for pleasure  and stayed there for excitement.    He  ,jWas, a   physical   giant.-   - There   were  vague rumors that once,, when ho had  caught  a   little  Mexican t cheating' at  cards and the latter had drawn a shining machete,  Cutler had held him in  -   his powerful arms and bent him baek-  .ward until he had  broken his  spinal  column:   But these were only rumors.  At any rate,'Cutler had never shown  ,   the white feather, and* he "was merciless to those who did.  The others of the group were Addie  Easton, who had been center rush and  "strong man'/ of his class at Harvard;  Keen Taylor, the marksman from*  South Carolina, where ' shooting is a  fine art, and Hal' FarJey, the elder  brother of the Kid, as brave, as cool a  fellow as ever sought his fortune in  the west.  ' "I more," said Collin without glanc-  1 ing at/the Kid, "that.we send him back  east tomorrow. He's shown the white  feather.* A. man who will break his  guard isn't worth the bacon he eats.

But the others were upon him  in a second, struggling, panting.  "White feather!"  It w(.s.the Kid's voice that rang out  ,over  the  tumult.     The  men   stopped  where they were.   What they saw held  them to the Loot.  With one graceful, nonchalant swing  the Kid dropped from the window sill.

It flashed on -the faces of the  group. Their expressions were a study.  "I've   got   something   else   to   say,"  went   on ^the * Kid.     "I   signed   your  -name, Hal, to the note I wrote to Essie.

The Kid's face shone.  4   "Well, maybe I will if you'll all 'pol-  ogize like that."  And they did.  could inflict but little in return.

Every public school has its own peculiar customs and slan^. but Eton  seems to be particularly well supplied  in this, respect. At Harrow it is or used  to be the height of cheek for a boy to  turn up his trousers till he had been  three years iu the school. At Eton it is  just the other way. ancTit is part'of the  school etiquette for a boy to turn up  his trousers,' to keep the bottom of his  waistcoat unbuttoned and if he has  need touse an umbrella never.to roll it-  up.'    ���������  ' Some of the so called Eton slang is  commonito other schools, but most of it  is only to'be understood of Etonians.  "Sock" as a* noun means food of all  kinds; as a verb it is equivalent to "to  give."- "Scug" is primarily a'boy who  has,no colors, but it is more particularly applied as a general term of abuse.  "A cool" at football is a hard kick by  one of the forwards. A "tug" is of  course a colleger, and a "tosh,,pan" Is  a-.sort of footbath.  Canada's Grand Old  Men.

Then some one'happened to-  think   of  the   queer   contortions   into  which the eel could twist itself, and it  was   straightway   brought  before  the  frog, and when the frog saw the wriggling he laughed so loud that the whole-  earth trembled, and the waters poured,  out of his mouth  In a great flood, in  which' many people were drowned.

For the first time since his  childhood he could see things at a distance.

Acute  illness and illness which brings the  patient close to death often has a bene-  cial' effect upon the disposition, but I  cannot agree with the assertion which  we frequently hear made in the pulpit  that suffering is usually the means of  refining. I have seen a few isolated  cases in which this was so, but it is not  the rule by any means.
