will be others in mid-summer.

Smith in .Minneapolis Journal.  ���������^^^S^K^^^^^-r^-^^O  i  SIX YEARS LOST.  'I  A "Woman Who Did Not Know the  Strength of Her Love. ' '  L  ''What would wc live on, Max?*' laughed Sydney Vernon, glancing down at her  'elegant morning  dress,   with  the  pretty  slipper <. just   peeping   from,   beneath   its  , hem. t "It's all very well ,to eschew- the  '   practicabilities of life, but/they are some-  ' what necessary, for all that, >and I have  never seen any great evidence of econo-  my on- 3-our- part,  and  I  am  quite  sure  you.have not on mine."  ' Max Bayard tugged impatiently at his  mustache   as  the  girl   whom   a  moment  before he had asked to.be his wife thus  answered him. ' -  <  '   'He   had   known- her   long   enough   to  learn to love her with 'all the strength of  ,    his great  heart,  to worship  her  beauty,  to 'follow  her  constantly  with <his  eyes',  Y knowing but one wish, one hope, that she'  , might be' his.  And she fancied, not altogether wrong-  _ ly, that  his  loye  had  met some return.  _   Her eyes, had brightened at his" coming,  her voice 'had  loarned  to  welcome  him,  until lie felt he must end suspense  and  gain-some assurance; the more1 so that a  ���������   Mr.  Clayton  had  lately  come  upon   the  scene, a rich and childless widower, who  ' 'evidently   looked   with   favor   upon   the  belle  of  the  watering' place  aud   whom  her aunt, under whose care she was, if  not the young lady herself, looked  upon  with favor in return.  "I have never had an incentive to economy," Max said in answer. "I have  enough to .live on and feed my horses",  though my tailor's bill does trouble me  now and then, I confess; but, Sydney, I  will change all that, dear. I can't perhaps give you all the luxuries to which  you are accustomed, but you shall not  lack for comforts, that I promise you."  "We should be miserable, Max, miserable, both you and I," the girl answered  bitterly. "We have not either of us been  reared in a school of poverty. I would  cry for cake, while you could only give  me bread, and you for ale, while I could  give you only kisses. Come, be sensible,  and let us be good friends."  "Friends? Never!" he exclaimed. "I  am starving, and you throw me a stone.  Look into my eyes, Sydney, straight and  true, and say you do not love me, and I  will go away and trouble you no more."  The  long  lashes drooped   low  on   her  cheek.    "I cannot quite say that," she an-  ������wered, "but I will say more. I promised last night to become Mr. Clayton's  wife within six months."  Max Bayard's handsome face grew  white to the very lips. A look of deadly  auger, mingled with something like loathing, crept into it. Sydney shrank from it'  as from a blow.  "Don't, Max, don't!" she cried. "1  couldn't help it.    I am very sorry."  "You could not help it! You are very  sorry!" he repeated very slowly. "Coulil  not help what? Toying with me for your  amusement���������playing fast and loose with  your victim or selling yourself to the  highest bidder? Which? You are very  sorry for whom? For the man you >)d  on?"  With these words ho turned and left  her sitting on the sands, the ocean making its low moan at her feet.  "Oh, if it would come on and on and  swallow me up!" she wailed in echo. "I  love him, I love him! Max, you are  right;' the man I propose lo marry does  deserve the pity. But you���������oh, my love,  you might have spared me your hate! I  did it for the best���������I did it for the best."  ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� * ������ ������  Six years had passed���������six years fraught  indeed with change.  "If she had been but true to herself  and me," Max Bayard had thought when  but a few months after the event which  had driven 'him from his native land to  find forgetfulnessMu travel a letter had  been put into his hand which had followed him from port to port, announcing  that he had fallen heir to a fortune which  might have challenged Mr. Clayton's in  its magnitude.  "If only she had trusted me," he said  bitterly again and again in the lonely  hours of the night, despising himself that  he could not learn to hate her.  A year afterward he married. His wife  was very young and very lovely, but there  were depths in his nature that her hand  never stirred, and even as she lay witb  her head pillowed on his .breast another  haunting face would, come between and  mid the caressing murmur of her words  would sound the echo of the "might have  been."  But he loved her very dearly and  mourned her very truly when, one short  year after their marriage, he laid her  away in her grave and took up the burden of life again, with the added responsibility of the tiny infant daughter'1 she  Jhad left him.  ' * * *       i *        _*.        * *  "Wanted.���������A lady to superintend the  education of a little girl.   Apply between  the hours'of 4 and 0 at ."  ��������� It was in answer to this adverti=������"ient  that, six years after that memorable afternoon upon the beach, a lady ' stood  waiting in" the elegant drawing room of  the house to which she had been directed.  Her veil was down, and the room was-  half in shadow from the heavy curtains  which draped the window, but for all  that she started when a step crossed the  hall and 'a gentleman, his hair' slightly  tinged with gray, entered.    '  She'had sunk back on the sofa, and her  frame quivered with1 emotion. '  "You have come, madam, in answer to  my advertisement?" he asked-cautiously.  ���������'"No,   no!"  sue answered.    "There  are  reasons why it will now be impossible for  me to accept the situation offered." ���������  That.voice.' Had it ubt top long haunted him to be thus easily forgotten?  Would he not know it, even though it  sounded above his very grave?  "Sydney! you here?" he exclaimed.  "Ah, Mrs. Clayton���������pardon me; for the  moment I forgot."  Then she1- threw back her veil. ', Six  years'had made little change. It-was the  same beautiful ' face, but groVn very  pale, and the lovely mouth quivered as  she spoke. ,  "Believe me, I would not have intruded  - myself upon you had I dreamed it was  you who had inserted the advertisement.  I had not even hoard of your marriage."  - "My wife is dead," he answered. "But  stay," as she arose to go. "Tell me how  it happens that you are in necessity. Is  Mr. Clayton dead?"     ,  She shuddered.'  i    "You   mistake,"  she  said."' "I  did  not'  marry Mr. Clayton.   I am Sydney Vernon  still.",  *     ��������� ���������  "You,did not marry him?"  "No. It is a woman's privilege, you  know, to change her mind, but my aunt  was very angry and at her death she left  me nothing. Your 'advertisement attracted me. I thought I might learn to love a  little girl." J  "And you will not learn to love my little motherless child?" he asked. "Accept  this position, I beg of you, Miss Vernon.  It is only that you should see she is not  left" to the-mercy- of nurses and that she  has some refining care." '     e l  So it was at last decided, and Sydney  found the old emptiness of life fled since  her heart and hands were full.   -  She   rarely   saw ' the   master   of   the  house..    One day1 when she had entered  on some    errand into his study she had  seen hanging over his desk the fair, pic-r  tured face of Mabel's mother..     ' _c~  "How soon he learned to love again,"  she thought. ( "And- I���������I whom he so  cruelly condemned���������threw aside ambition and wealth for the idol I could never grasp."  But one evening Mabel stole to the  side of the lovely lady who had won all  her loyal little heart.  "Papa is ill," she said.    "Did you know  it,  Miss  Sydney?     Won't  you  go  nurse  him like you do me when me is ill ?"  i  "Certainly,   darling,   if  I   can  do  any-  -thing."  ,    And with trembling steps she descended the stairs and entered his room.  For hours she sat beside him, changing  the cooling bandages upon his brow and  fanning his fevered cheeks.  Mabel had como softly in for her good  night kiss; then he had fallen asleep,  and she had feared to stir, as she might  waken him.  "Sydney, why did you not marry Mr.  Clayton?"  Had he really spoken or��������� was it her  own thoughts which formed the question? No, he was awake now, his eyes  resting upon her.  "You have no right to ask me," she  said imperiously. "Let the dead past  bury its dead."  "No right perhaps���������that I admit, but  answer me all the same. For the sake  of all these starving years let me' know  the truth."  "Because I did not love him," she answered; then���������"because I fouftd myself  weaker than I knew."  "Oh, Sydney, if we had known���������if we  had known! My darling, was there another reason? Was it because you loved  me?"     --  In his voice there thrilled the truth.  In that moment she knew herself empress of his heart all these years, and  gliding from her chair until she fell back  on her knees by his side, with her beautiful head close pressed against his heart,  while his kisses rained upon her hair, she  whispered:  "Because I shall love you while life  lasts." ,  A month later there was n quiet wedding, when, after six years' cruel waiting,  Sydney made the life happiness of the  man to whom she gave herself, a royal  gift, but they always said, with a sigh of  deep regret, that in both their lives they,  had lost���������six years.���������Spare Moments.  book out of her hands.

"Then it does not interest me in the  least, and if you would label it to that  effect no one would care to disturb it,"  answered the American woman.  Soon ,after she was joined by one of  the powerful officials of the Kremlin  who had made an appointment to show  the American lady about. -As she went  from one object to another with the official the attendants hovered respectfully  in the rear, evidently impressed with the  friendly tone of the conversation! * When  the round had been made and the official  had departed to his duties, -the guardian  of the autograph album invited 'her 'to  add her "illustrious" name to the list.

My "assistant sized, him up. 'Dear, dear,' she  said impersonally. 'I don't see how he  &tands it so-well. It is very painful.'

One day at the Kremlin in Moscow  Miss Hapgood, an American lady, was  favored with an amusing manifestation  of the all pervading influence in Russian  life of "official" rank.  While looking at objects of interest  she noticed a large, handsomely bound  book flanked by p'en and ink on a side  table. As she opened the book an attendant pounced upon her.  "Don't touch that!" he said peremptorily.  "Why not? If you do not wish people  to look at this collection of -ancient documents���������I suppose that is what it is���������you  should lock it up or label it, 'Hands off!' "  retorted the annoyed lady.  "It isn't ancient documents, and you  are not to touch it," he said, taking the  An      Experience     Witli      Frijylitened  HciTtiiK In York Harbor, .Me.  "The- last lime I was in York Harbor,  Me.-," said a Boston man, "was in the  summer of 1S84. In those days the rail-  ' road stopped short at Portsmouth,,N. H.  ���������12 miles distant���������and the balance of the  journey 3*011 made by coach. lit is one of  the most "attractive 'places I have ever  visited. But I knew it in its stagecoaek  days, and prejudice has kept mc from returning isince the railroad reached out  and touched it. It -was in this summer  that I witnessed one of the most remarkable -sights it has ever, been my, luck to  see!1 York harbor is a beautiful circular  bay, into one end of which the rivercruns.  Behind, the bluff the river forms a small  harbor, and then it decreases .rapidly in  size, as you proceed'inland. Two miles  above the harbor it is scarcely more than  a creek. One evening after supper I had  taken a couple of,;young ladles for a ro'fl'.'  Dusk found us about a mile from, the'hd-  tel on-our way, home. As I was rowing,  myu back was to the stream. Suddenly  the girl steering cried out, 'Gracious me,  what's that?'  '"Turning, L saw'in the gloaming what  seemed a wall o% phosphorescent water  some two feet high. It was rushing toward us, and thinking it must be a tidal  'wave or something of that kind I grabbed- for the oars. There was no time" <to(  reach the shore^so I held the boat head  on to the advancing wave, at the same  time warning my companions lo sit perfectly still. ��������� In a second it struck us. and  it struck us hard. Fish iu twos and  .'threes'began to jump into the'boat, and'  the frightened 'girls., screaming, 'jumped  on the thwarts. I implored-them to sit  down-and'to keep perfectly still, for the  boat rocked fearfully, and we were in imminent danger of upsetting.  "The river was covered with fish from  bank to bank, like a gigantic sardine box.  and if we had ever gone over among  them knowledge of swimming would not  have been of tho slightest use. The girls  finally quieted down, and we were able  to watch_the spectacle without fear. It  was the strangest of sights. Down the  stream to the bay the river seemed a  mass of living, leaping quicksilver. Tho  head of the line was 100 yards.beyond us,  a moving, living line of light. Fish by  the score jumped into the boat and kept  us busy pitching them out. I thrust my  oar down into the -water, and you co_ld  feel their bodies leaping ��������� against its entire length. Finally, however, the stream  cleared enough for me to row again, and  we returned to our hotel.  "The explanation of the phenomenon  was comparatively simple," the narrator  went on. "Herring have a deadly eno-  -my called, I think, monk fish. They  hunt them in-t schools and destroy the  ���������herring by hundreds. When the monk  fish get after them, the herring run for  it as their only means of escape. A  Echool of herring had been chased into  the outer harbor. The monk fish blocked their way back to the sea. Then the  herring found. the way into the river,  and the whole frightened school tore  through and up t!._ stream in their wHd  effort to escape. They died there by  thousands.       '    '  "The next morning the plot in front of  the Marshall House was silvered with  their bodies, and both shores of the river  for miles presented a similar appearance.  Fanners all over the country came there  and took the fish away by the cartload  to use as fertilizer: But there were fish  enough to have fertilized New England,  and presently^ they began to decay. The  people stood it for a day or two, but by  that time they smelt to high heaven,  and every one that could fled as from the  bubonic plague. I couldn't and had to  stay through.  "It was an awful experience. The water in the river ran. like glue and so impregnated the water.'of the outer bay  that bathing for awhile was out of the  question. You ate,- drank, slept/and cursed fish. , Fish were in the clear weather  and in the storm. ' The summer of 18S4  at York Harbor has since been known  as the stale fish summer."  An  Esrs Tricli.  , Speakjngi of the tricks' of his trade.  .Paul Cuiquevalli, the-.king of jugglers,  said that catching an egg ou a plate without breaking it is a feat which has elicited as much applause as curiosity as to  how it is done.  "It is easy, enough when you know  how." says Mr. Cinqucvalii, "and if you  .practice it sufficiently.t Most people will  tell you that if you want to deaden'the  force of a falling object you must 'give  with it' in exactly the same \tay as one  catches a cricket ball.  "Try  to* catch  an  egg on a-.plate by  'giving with it' and you will  break  the  egg every time. The way to do it is td  hold the plate sideways and. judging the  fall of the egg, bring the plate up to it'so  as to touch it sideways. Then suddenly  turn the plate round so as (to bring it  horizontal, and the egg will be made to  rest on the plate w'thout auy trouble."-  :{o������or?.hle Violet Vi\iau, tlie Heroine   of  r MilllV    SoYtilh. i  .

I  would say. then, breed from mature animals,   selecting   only   enough   young  Kiwi to keep up the required number  of  breeding animals  us  the old  ones  drop  out.     Feed   correctly,   breed   for  two Utters each year, thus haviug two  crops of hogs to turn off yearly; treat  your hogs as you would any other aul-  nial that paid you well, and you  will  find that tin- well bred hog. well housed and well fed. will always bring you  1 a large profit.  Wrnnlni. Pl*������.  A litter of pigs should not be weaned  till uearly 3 mouths of age, and if fed  where they cannot be molested by theii  dam or other pigs from the time the.  me 4 to G weeks old they will never  know they are weaned, but will con  tliuie to grow very fast and have no  *< (back. Pigs weaned at <> weeks of  Bjre must surely have a hard setback In  their thrift, but if not weaned till about  S months old and fed as above with  suitable feed they are almost ready for  market any day from this aget on to 6  or 8 months. If this practice is followed up for a generation, we would  ��������� tear but little of swine disease.���������Prai-  rle Farmer.  The Learnmea.

The pea is the favorite legume of middle and northern Kurope. while in the  1 Mediterranean countries tbe bean is  grown more. ge-Jerally than the pea  Jn nearly all sections of our own comi  try both the pea and bean are grown  extensively and are even exported.

V.  i  ALliVMC VAI.l.K.Vl-'IKI.D.  When Albert'Yalloyiiold was 21 years  of age, life showered upon him its kind-  ^ est blessings.    He was the only child of'  'rich old Major Valjoyth-Ul, who boasting  of a long line of noble British ancestors,  fcottlod in New York .City, U. S., wheu  ,   Albert wa������s a  more hid,  in order to tho  more   readily    speculate     in   American  securities,which had been a pas iju with'  bim-during die senior-ye.irs of his life.  Though  New York was a good  enough  place for the major to make money in,  it was not a good enough place to odii-.  cate his boy in, so at the age of T.'������ Al-  Lertowas packed oft' to one of rhe I-hit,-  h'sh universities to be schooled after th?  traditions of his  fatheis.  i   Albert had made a 'mark  for  himself  at. -Cambridge,     and     returned     to   tho  United   States'   commercial     metropolis  when.''19 years old. with all the triumph  of   successful   examinations     upon   him.  In New  York  City,   under these  conditions: his life was one  round  of happiness and  pleasure.     Sought  for  on   account of his own worth, and the "prest-  age"'- his father's  fortune  gave him,  ho  w as  a social  lion  and  a  social  success,  ���������and his life for a .time after he had won  his graduation papers   was one long ray  01  sunlight into which the penumbra of  tare  had  not yet  como.     At this  time,  as a crowning benediction  to his  other  joyous  realities,  he  was engaged   to  be  married  to  one  of  New  York's   fairest  daughters,   a   Miss     Clara     Humphrey  Hawthorne,  who boasted  of Mayflower  distinction in her line of birth.  Albert was deeply attached to Ids  fan CO. and believimr that she was deeply attached to him, looked upon the  .success of his suit for lier hand as the  cnly remaining drop necessary to fill to  tho brim   his cap of happiness.  How  is it that some' im.-; just   l������e<*()....  Fate   dc"'Is   r.-<   he-   eni"le>i   onslaughis  that is the exact time idi'-n sho eartea  vorf. to make ns think grief is. the fu rh-  cst  fr>:n us 7  It v/as so in Albert's on.-.e; Indeed,  the .invitations had. boe.i issued for his  irarr age in Scntenibo.-, when on the  fourth" day of Angus.', his futlie:-. the  major, died from a sudden stroke of ap-  poplercy and an o.'.aminuiioii of his affairs by his executors revca'.'d (lie faet.  that he was a bankrupt, and that: all  A! bo ft, Ins son, ' poKosssoil in the wide  world now. was a property worth soiro  $10,000. left to .him by his mother at  her death. When the invesiigations  into tho affairs of tho elder Ya Hey field  were concluded, it was found that ho  was not only bankrupt, but that he had  left behind him debts to the amount of  over $00,000. and to pay, these Albert  .promptly sold his own property and took  up his father's paper that his parent  might go down to the grave wilh bono-.-,  ���������owing no man a cent. People fold AJbert  ho wa.s a' fool to do it, but to this he  only quietly replied: "There has never  >.oen a stain' on' a Vfli'\vf:old yet, and  no one has suffor'-d yet from those of  my. b'ood, and as far as I can pV; vent  it. no one ever shall."  He did this thing easily, as being a  vital principle of his being. A much  more ditlienlt thing for him to do was  the adaptation of himself to the patent  fact that his betrothed had suffered her  ardor for him to cool, oven before his  first sharp pangs of grief for his parent's death  had subsided.  As  soon   at   the   proper   time   arrived  he went  to* and  released  her  from the  tie that bound her to him, and when she  accepted   the   release   with   scant  effort  to disguise her pleasure,  over the dead  embers  of the  fire  of his previous successes    rose   a ' sweet  incense   of   satisfaction   that   ho   had     discovered     this  beautiful  croatu'-o'^ selfish  instincts ere  he ,had  been  inseparably joined  to  her.

Elsie noticed the change, but  at; is sometimes the" case she attributed  ii to the -wrong cause.    , >  That .there* v.'as some mystery about  her mine, Elizabeth felt sure; yet when  she thought of her manager (and she  did think of him very much that day!;  ifcj was of the graceful , and. court<y  way he had lifted Iter over that stream,  rather than in any other character.-Th_  delicate, yet tender, manner in.'which  he had performed,what he had regarded  as a duty, lingeietl with' her long, and'  she woiideied where his youth had been  spent for him lo receive thai kind of sin  education. - -     -  Jt did not require'much pei ception- en  Elizabeth's part . to soon discover froni  what was said in her hearing that the  It.ogle Bill and Sur<> Footed Colt were  rival mines, aud that a perfect lv hostile  understanding existed between the two  claims, but she rightly conjectured that  remaining away from her own possession for a time would be the best possible way to'allay suspicion, and at the  same time enable her to hear all the  gossip concerning the property that she  here owned.  Oa the third day of Elizabeth's arrival at Godfrey's. Elsie hept her room  and nursed a severe headache, while  her coiiFin passed ihe major part of tho  Cij in galloping Godfrey's mustang  ove'i- the bcuuiiliil but silent country.  Xear evening she directed him towards  a certain stream, let him splash through  it and then gallop far up into the woods  or. the opposite side. "Without considering the impulse that swayed her. ^he  passed on to the spot where the pickaxe  bandies had been made a few days before. All was silent here now. and the  touch of loneliness-which the view gave  her awoke her for the first time to the  real reason that had impelled her lo  take this direction. Feeling a littlo  abasod at hercown foolishness, she  brought her mustang around with a  jerk, and by giving him a sharp cut on  the flank, evidently desired him to go  back much faster than lie bad come.,  But this mustang was uoi- accu^tom^d  to such -sudden capr'c">. and he re^en;.-1  the lreatuie'it at "lice by ma kin.' two  rapid jiiinns forward, then wl.eeiin.:  .suddenly.

THE GAIT OF THE MAN  ONE   PLACE WHERE  IT BRINGS   OUT  "' "HIS'CHARACTER.-' -���������-.  ��������� *'. ,i ���������  An Old "Chair Warmer" Says That  V/aicliiBisYMen ns Tliey Cross tlie  Lobby of a. Fashionable Hotel Is'a  Great Study of Human' Nature.  "You can tell 'with probahle certainty  a man's character,' disposition and station in lifo when you.seo him cross a hotel lobby," said an old lobby lounger the  other day as he, sat down in��������� a chair in  one of the big hotels.  "Did you ever sit and watch the people  pass? It's an interesting study in human  character and the-result'of human experience. * Pride, timidity, assurance, weakness, concentration"���������all walk before you.  They say, that those things can ' be 'told  by' a man's manner of_ walking on the  sf'reut. or anywhere l else, but .start him  over the marble corridor and'see how all  his traits are emphasized and acceutu-  ated." -  ' .lust then two buds of manhood entered  the lobby where, the lounger sat. - The'y  wore high white'collars. /-They walked  hard and laughe/T loud.. One, of them  'stopped at the cigar stand to light a cigarette and called 10 his comrade-to wait.  Then they deliberately walked directly  towa'rd the bar. They did not try to conceal the fact that they were going toward  the hotel's barroom. They did it openly.  They even advertised it. Probably they  were,going to get a very wicked drink.  -'T)o- ypu know,'' mused--the lounger,  "that there-'is a* certain. atmosphcrevthat-  can. be-found' only,'in first' class, hotels?  -It is ah atmosphere of.'what'-might'.be;  called/.'sporty 'gentility. It -makes, men  ,feel ill it ease unless their clothes are  good." To enter the lobby"of a -"fashionable hotel, causes 'some men 'to talk .in  words and'on subjects^that are-unusual  to' them���������to put on airs! as it' were! Men  never hesitate to say: ���������" v  " 'I   was  in  the hotel,- you' know,  when I met So-and-so', aud he told  me,'  etc.    - ' ' .    ,.  . "Those two young gentlemen, that you  just saw enter the bar feel all this. They  i'eel that- they would acquire a certain  position in the social scale by appearing,  to be at home in this lobby. But-their,  noisy manner makes it :ipparent that,they'  wish to advertise their presence, and.thus  they destroy the improssiou which'they  try-to create.      ' , \. ,  "To cross a hotel lobby is something of  an event to a man who isn't usea to it,"  continued-the lounger, "and that is why  personal1 characteristics stick out'all the  stronger when he does. Now, thei gentleman'who is proud of his looks is sure to  give a free exhibition of himself as he  walks across the smooth floor.' He will  square his shoulders and hold out his  chest and throw back his������haughty head  and strut like a proud, plumed thing.  You can almost imagine that you see hot.  tlames bursting fc-om his nostrils.' ;He  glances from right to left to be .certain  that be is being closely observed. ,He_  acknowledges the smile of the" cigar girl  wilh" a sweeping salute. He raises his  hat-and bows grandly to the telegraph,  gh!, and when lie has0 reached the counter where the'clerk stands there is a feeling hf_the lobby not unlike that in the  street after the circ.-.s parade has passed.  It is a feeling that all is .over.   >    '  "Not so with the timid, modest gentleman. He will walk hurriedly, as though  glad to have the ordeal past. lie does not  d;ire to look about him, but he will probably rub his nose or stroke'his chin as a  shy man does who walks down a long  church aisle. He is ashamed to be making himself so prominent. If you speak  to this man afterward, you will find that  his voice is mild and his manner self de-  preciative.  "After all," continued the "chair boarder," "the most interesting sight is that of  a man whose feet are at home-*on grasp  or plowed ground making a voyage over  the marble floor of the hotel lobby. Such  a one is impressed with the awfulncss of  the thing. He is panic stricken to begin  wilh. and, then, Mie st'dne is so solid that  it1 gives a shock to each foot as he puts  it down, so that he lifts it high with each  step, like a chicken walking in tho wet  grass, and. then, there is the constant  peril of slipping. The distance across the  lobby seems, miles.     I   have seen  a  man  take it by easy stages���������walk first to - a  chak and sDeak into it, and then rise  gingerly .and grit his teeth and start out  again full of grim determination. Such'  a man is sure to be noticed. Just because  ���������he longs to" be unobserved unkind'fate,  fastens'every one's eyes on him. f     , '.  "Thei;e  is one  type,  however,"  mused  the lounger, "that no'one notices.    He is  the man who lives in hotels.     He walks  across the lobby with as much unconcern  as be would into his own bouse.    In fact,  I believe that men who have been guests  yoai\'aftor vear at the sume hotel grow to -;  asiimii' a sort of ownership.'    ' -    ,  i "There   is   another   set   of   individuals  whose  habits  and  character  are  unmistakable when t,hey' appear in  the hotels. ,  I belong to this class myself.    They call  us "chair warmers,'  'lobby loungers' and  ,  other things.

Monsieur    Gigon    -was "" professor    of
French and Spanish.    We met as teacher
, and pupil one spring in New Orleans. 1
!-aw his advertisement for pupils in the

A ^slender,   white-haired,   white' mus-'

' lor and 'introduced 'himself as Monsieur
Gigon. profosseur. _ '���       ,"������,'
r'He wore a drpss.suit, which, though riot
���   exactly shabby, 'socmed-of somewhat ancient cut* and as if it had  been brought
out of some place where it ha (I been neatly folded away for :\ long time.    It had
r-verydong, sloping coaltails, of which he
was extremely careful whendie reseated
.himself.      ,        ' ,   ,     <
I-    I sat down opposite him, and the flood
of  afternoon   sun-dune > pouring  through
the   window   behind   him - showed   me ra
thin, hatchet shaped face almost the color
of leather, with a dapper goatee-ahd long
( .mustachios,   lately   trimmed, ,and.'larger
'   eyes of so., pale a gray that they were .almost the.hue'of glass.1,'
His   lower  jaw   trembled   continually,
- and his long, bloodless lingers, shook, too,
as  he kept folding  them  one  over the
other.   >     - , v j
lie began,to talk of the",lessons I wished  to take, and   in  spite of  the,, strong
restraint that he was putting upon him-
v self, I could not help -noticing.4Hat' once'

��� "You 'have a classroom ?"' I said'     ", '
�� r "Oh, yes.'-  he replied-'with a pompous
sweep of the'hahd. "quite at your service^"
"And ' you "have   no   other, pupils   od
^Wednesdays arid FiiSays, at 11 o'clock?"
-  He paused  a   moment  and   pulled his
goatee reflectively..., "No!" he announced
' at last' iu a-decided tone.  '
,'*Then, 1 shall come on those 'days to
your classroom, for the parlor here is so
���'often occupied.that.it would not he convenient.lo "take my lessons at the house."
"Very good, mademoiselle," he replied
briskly, rising:'and making me a profound
bowy  '.'On Wednesday.'then, and au plai-
sir de vous voir." ' It was not the sun-
il-ehihe  that   so   suddenly   brightened   his
eyes aud quickened his gestures, I think.
'He %bowed himself out of the _roorn
and down the stairs with so much animation that I had/a vague sense of having
assisted at some kind of .transformation
of personality.  ' >   '* ' :
On; Wednesday I presented myself, at'
the classroom. "I  remembered   Monsieur
Gigon's  having  put  it  ."at  my   service"
with so ceremonious" a' tone and gesture
When I entered.    It was merely a 10 by.
, 12  garret,   dimly   lighted   by   one  small
window and door, and  furnished  with a
wooden table without a cover and^two or
three, shelves   of   unintere.stiug;$lookiug
hooks.   There were dust and dalj everywhere, as if the landlady ncvc^j'bmcra-
bered it in her rounds.    I do not'think she
did, nor him, either, save on  rent days.
Monsieur    Gigon     appeared     presently,
shorn of the splendor of his  dress coat
and wearing in its stead an odd species
of morning jacket that,reminded me more
than anything else of those short,  flow-
in/' sacks which  French" Creole ladies in
reduced circumstances wear in the fore-
liour, ,we sometimes had short talks about
Mexico, ' where Monsieur ,, Gigon had
learned Spanish. He spoke of that country with quite the experienced air of a
great traveler, though it seems that it was
the solitary voyage die had made in his
life besides the passage from Bordeaux
to America. He lovedrto recall the blue
Mexican sky, tho warmth of the sun
there, the prodigality o��'fruits and vegetables and the beautiful women. "But
there are beautiful women everywhere,"
he would conclude. This was (a little
piece of general gallantry that, he always
aired whenever he had specialized as to
the physical perfection of the women of
any' country, whether they wTere Greek*

was, that my professor, true'to his na-

��� One morning when I entered the classroom, on whose shelves among tlie dusty
books T began often to see small red vials
now,''! found Monsieur Gigon before the
���tabic, apparently jotting down hieroglyphics in a 'small,,notebook and with a
pile of new looking class books. before
him.       '
"Is ,he  an   Egyptian  scholar, too?"   I"
asked myself :as I laid my copy of "Iphi-
' genie'? upon the table.
lie looked up in some confusion, th,en
lOse. doffed his cap and said: "Mademoiselle finds me at My studies this morning.
I 'a:u learning Stenography." '
, "Something harder than French?" I inquired.    , i  ���      -,   ,
"Oh. not so very diflicult. I have been
not always "so easy fo get/ French and
Spanish scholars, and it-does not pay
\ory well; then. Now. this stenography
pays'very well, they tell me, and many
people are'learning it these days. fIt is
the thing to'learn, you know. 'Now, in a
.few more weeks, when I shall know it
'better, per hops I shall be able to form a'
class and teach it."
- lie did not look'a(,mc as,lie thus laid
bare .this perilous ambition of liis, but
straightened himself proudly in,his chair
.and began to search tor the second scene
of the third act in "Iphigenie." 'Monsieur
Gigon-might he given, to the weakness ot
the repetition of his sentiments ou? ma t-
-ilois in general, but this.wa's the first time

had that unhappy gift of picturing him-

Tl^e caj) ddmlcd. we sat down to our
les.s'on. The classic Iliad chosen to read
was the "Iphigenie" of Racine, and there
seemed a certain correspondence to my
surroundings and to:the professor in the
edition. I had bought it at an ancient
smelling secondhand -bookshop on line
lioyale, and it had a faded brown cloth
cover with mildew spots; here and there,
and the title in faded ink ou a slip of. pa-,
per, pasted to one side.
On reading the title of.the mildewy little booh my teacher brightened visibly
and remarked with enthusiasm. "Ah, the
Greeks, they were a brave people," a
speech which he made always with the
same warmth at the commencement of
each succeeding lesson. If I have yet an
undue amount of admiration for the ancients to the prejudice of the moderns, it
may he attributed to .Monsieur Gigon's
persevering, inculcation.      -
Tie was a very painstaking, patient instructor, plowing through.the same phrase
with me half a dozen limes, to be sure
that I had caught the exact sense of it^
and encouraging me often when he felt
that I had at last mastered it by exclaiming -with uplifted pale eyes, "La Fontaine. Racine, and .Beranger, they were
the perfect writers."
If my lessons were finished within the
prospect.of his being able to form a ste-
nogiaphy class with so many ouicker'and
younger rivals in the field, but my mind
was mostly filled with admiration at the
persistent determination of this feeble,
palsied old man. It is true that there
was positively nothing practical in this
great effort lie was making���the' gods,
alas, endow so iew of us with practicality
���hut it was such' a pitifullj' heioic
struggle toward "gaining the Iife,"as he
would expLess it. that it took one's breath
away-to think of it. much as if it had
been the twelve labors of Hercules.
"Ah. the Greeks were a brave people."
he said at length, indicating to me-the
,veise where we were to begin reading,
and .1 took up the fortunes-of Achilles'
beloved again.:' apparently remembering
nothing of those of my..professor.

"The morning'for my last lesson came.
.1 was quitting New.Orleans for the summer. Monsieur" Gigon was much shaken
to give me up, though'he was-too proud
to say so. I "fancy that I was really his
only permanent scholar, though he spoke
vaguely of a young man whose "devoirs"
he corrected at leisure moments.
; The lesson went rather badly. He did
not care at, all when I construed an imperfect tense for a past definite one���unheard of indifference'on his part. At
hist, with many an'apology, he took down
one of the little red vials from a shelf-and
swallowed part of its contents, then, turning to me. with a pathetic quaver in his
dry old voice, he said: "C'as conte cher!
Vou do not know bow that costs, my
After that there was no a tempt to pro-
eeed with the lesson. I attempted to say
a few little things by way of faroweil
words and spoke of the near future when

"And   I,"   he  continued,   straightening
himself and looking out past the sea, of
red housetops, "I see the bell, towers of
*the other world yonder."
'  I held  out my  hand.    He took it,  remembered then the part he had to play
in life, shook it and said in a g-ay. cracked
old   voice,   "Bon   voyage,   mademoiselle,

"1 spent a couple of weeks with a camping party last spring, and one morning 1
got separated from the other boys, and ii
was night before I found my way back to

and when I filled up my pipe after wandering around for an hour or two I was
horrified to find that my match safe was
empty. As soon as I made that discovery my' desire, for a smoke increased
about 500 per cent. If I had had my gun
along, 1 could have started a blaze without trouble, but unlrickily I had set out lo
do !>oine fishing and had no weapon'but
my hook and line. Naturally the first
thing that occurred to me was fiint and

then I happened'to think of the old story
about, making fire with two npieces of

"Well, I 'won't tire you with'details, but

picked  up chunks of half a dozen different,kinds of-wood,  trimmed them down

one soft stick, exactly as the story books
say the Indians-do.    But, although I rubbed  until'the^pesky  things  were  chafed

Tiden In the Stars,
Professor Campbell of the Lick observatory  reports that the star called
Xi  Geminorum.   which   bas long  been
known as a variable, is in reality double,   but   its   two   components   are   so
close that no telescope is able to separate them, and their existence is prov
ed  by'the shifting lines  in  the spec
trum.   Tbe variations in brightness, he,
thinks, can only be due to tbe attraction between the two stars raising im
mense tides in their molten or vaporous
globes,   which .through   tho  effects   of
compression  or otherwise displace the
spectral lines.

yard Kipling on a hill whence a most
.beautiful view was to be obtained. The
outlook, however, was slightly spoiled by
three' apple trees, and Rhodes decided
that they'must come down. So he rushed to the nearest cottage and. finding the
door locked, broke, it in. found an old ax
and -began, hacking the trees down. Kipling sat by in silence?. 'At last the "trees
fell. ��� Rhodes sat down to enjoy the
view. Kipling got up. picket! up a piece
of dirty rag.that was lying on the ground
and tied it oh a branch of one of the fallen trees. -.'-...
"What on earth did you do that for?"
said Rhodes. "Now I can see the view,"
replied Kipling. '"You must never have
a scene too perfect. You must always
have a blot, and that is my blot. If you
get perfection, you cease to enjoy it."
