THE PERPLEXING
NIT1AL

Copyright, 1803. by T. C. MoCluro

The roar of the river aa Its waters
tumbled over the rocks drowned the
sound of footsteps, drowned even tbe
aigh of the lireeze among the tree tops.
A dense shadow lay over the gorge, for
���the sun was behlud a cloud.
The fish In the stream had not been
biting to suit a young flsher woman,
and she had thrust her pole Into the
bank nnd gone aside to carve something' In the bark of an old beech. Laboriously she worked away and at
length had completed a single large A.
A. man approached along the river
trail and stood directly behind the girl,
watching hor work. A flush passed
over his face when he saw the letter
the girl had carved, and he frowned.
Then he coughed, and the girl was
*tartled,   She turned quickly around.
"You, Amos?" she exclaimed.
"Me, Marth," was the answer.
"Why didn't ye whistle or somethin'
*fore ye got so close?''
"Wanted to see what ye're doin'."
Marth's face reddened slightly.
"Well?" V
������Well, I see ye've got that schoolteacher in yer mind."
" 'Tain't so. Now, I wonder what put
that in yer head?"
"I see ye're flsin' to carve his name."
Marth looked up at the letter in the
bark, then looked at Amoa in silence.
"Don't reckon ye can hardly deny
ft," continued Amos jealously, "for I
don't reckon ye could say that letter
fitood for anybody else around these
��arts but Aldrich; so I put it up ye're
���a-thiukin' a right smart ubout that
��ame schoolteacher."
"Amos Underwood, ye haven't got a
grain o' sense. Ye can't see two inches
jafore yer nose." Marth's eyes were
���dancing.
"I reckon ye think so, Marth. But I
think I know what's what when a girl
carves a chap's name on a tree. Marth,
girl, I think ye might have spared me
ntfflg-klnil^C'ninhiran'-mie-thinkin'-of-
ye.the way I do.   Ye might have wait-
tuiusawa -mnoi-ntt tub oi-enino, sui
cai-Iiep ma namis.
ed till I was-tlll Bomethln' had Imp-
penert to mo.   Then I'd alters thougftt
���ye Inv-'d inf."
Mnnli glanced nu;!*ilri at the letter In
tlio l.fivl-, thi'ii buck at Amos, und looked 'll.,!J,IIHt..'tl.
"I iu'vi'i- mild I was n-(lilnkhr one
nil!' about tlio BCliooltoai'lier, have I?"
"Xnt with yer mouth, but ya've wild
it ui�� therr- Willi, yor p<ii-!;ct knife."
Ainoi. pointed nt thu h\g letter in tbo
baric.
Ma rib turned a Hlendy wm\ full of
Ore, U|km the ihiiii'h fiico for a moment,
Chen let lici' word", lly.
"Anion Underwood," sho Fnnppo.l,
"yo'ro tho l'l*,',"i'."t ������inn*) I ever k-iiv. I
halo ye, l despise yt*., New, ye uo.
And 1 do hope tl.--' revenues will y;el yo

Ills hut.
".No ye don't!"    Mart!, stamped lier

Marth laid wound up her fl��h line by
iho tlmo Amos hud (.tone from view,
f:iid bIio tunied toward the old beech
t.n.u.i.
"The cra'/y," ahc murmured. "IIu
conldu't remember Ids own natue start-

glad of it. 1 do halo n man Hint can't

of the mountain..
As fhe afternoon dnwd nlon-;
Marth went oror nnd ovt In her mind
the Gf-rno on the river bank, nivl nt
����;i��-h rob-wiri-a! k1i�� f��-fte!.eij a lllile* tu-
svunl  Aitiv.�� ....Ul ul l.ut cuti Cvturu
of tho wish she had uttered deepened
her regret, for in a superstitious wa*
she feared that her wish might briuj.
Ihe officers into that part of the coun
try, and Amos would indeed be in dan
ger.
But Marth kept herself busy all thr
while, trying to drive out of her mind
the scene and her, words under the
branches of the old beech.
At dusk she milked the cows, then
***���:*, t to the spring for a pail of water.
\s she stood and began slowly to dip
e water from the rocky basin with a
��� handled courd her auick ear
caught the sound of hoof beats against
the stones, and she turned her head
and peered through the woods to the
right of her. Just across a shallow
ravine a trail led around the side of
the mountain, and on this trail Marth's
eyes could now see three shadowy
horses and riders, and there was a
gleam of polished metal which told the
girl that each rider had a gun strapped
to his back.
For a moment Marth's heart stood
still. She knew she was gazing upon
the dreaded revenue officers, and her
thoughts flew to Amos, more than
three miles away down the ravine,
whore he would soon bo at work in the
distillery.
The girl sat motionless until the riders had passed a bowlder which protruded from the hillside. Then she
seized her pall and ran up the trail to
the cabin. There was but one thought.
In her he��d. Amos must be warned
and saved at any cost. Saddling a
small mule which she led from tlie stable, she leaped upon his back, dragged
a shotgun up after her and rested it
upon the animal's neck. Then she set
off along a trail which diverged from
that taken by the officers.
The mule was soon urged into a trot,
and this pace he was forced to keep up
down the rugged, water worn trail
through the darkness of the deep
woods. Marth sat like a statue on the
animal's back, with her ears strained
to catch the least sound and her eyes
wide open for any sign of- the officers.
The murklness of the woods seemed to
hold no terrors for her. She was thinking of the unrighteous wish she had
uttered to Amos.
At last she reached a high rock overlooking a bluff, and she stopped and
listened intently. Then, slipping down
-from4he-saddle,,she_c*��pUntojaJai*M,
thicket on one side of the rock and after a few minutes came out in the glare
of a furnace fire. She was at the doorway of Amos Underwood's stillhouse.
Springing through the opening, she
called his name. Amos turned quickly,
and his hand grasped the butt of a revolver, but when he saw Marth he allowed his chin to drop to his breast,
and his hand fell limply to his side.
"Have ye brought 'em, Marth?" he
asked.
"No, Amos, but they're comln', an'
I've come nil tho wriy hero to warn ye
so's yo could save yerself. -I'm sorry
for what I said, though I didn't reckon
I'd ever own it."
"Marth, I���I reckon, then, yo do lovo
me some, though yo did start to
carve"���
"Amos, Jest plain Amos, on that tree.
I reckon A Btnnds for Amos, don't It,
crazy?"
"Marth, I've been a gum fool! But
I'm powerful happy right now."
He extended bis arms toward Marth,
but tho girl backed away.
"No tlmo for that, Amos. Don't yo
hear them hoof beats?"
Tho moonshiner caught tho girl's
hand, and together thoy sprang Into
tho laurel. Flvo minutes later they
stood on tho rock abovo tho stillhouse
and listened to tho work, of destruction
that was belli"? carried on by tho raiders' axes.
"Woll, yo'ro safe anyhow, Amos,"
whispered Marth, and Amos, catching
her hi hia arma, tousled bor hair with
his chin. ^mmmmtm_m_m^mmm__0i

After awhile she came to look for
him when the train stopped at the
Fifty-third street station in the morning���the tall, broad shouldered man
with the aggressive ,c�� n and determined mouth. Sho felt vaguely disappointed when she did not see him.
Insensibly he became the touch of
romance in the dreary monotony, of
her days, fiVe and a half out of seven
of which were spent in Wall street, a
place whero the advantages of being
a woman are not glaringly-apparent.
Often during the nagging afternoons
of summer, when business was dull
and the hands of the clock approached 5 but slowly, she would sit resting
her face on her hands nnd wondering
about h!;u. Who wns lie? What was
ho?   Was he married or single?
The noise cf the street blow, dulled
by distance until it was as dreamy as
the humming of bees at noonday,
droned softly in her ears a sort of living- melody, and her thoughts defied
office hours and went far afield in a
fautastc search for the reality about
him among the crowd of possibilities.
Over and over she gave him a local
habitation and a name, but theso
changed always with her mood. No
name that she could hit upon seemed
to express his personality, and sho
finally discarded, thorn all and thought
of him only a3 The Man.
The weeks melted into months, but
her interest in him did not flag. Rather it became deeper as time went on.
Curiously enough, it was what might
be termed the nonessentials that baffled her. About the man himself���his
character and what he would do in'
any given emergency ��� she felt the
same assurance that she did about herself.
Sho had decided that he was a lawyer, though precisely why she thought
fio-she-could^.notlhayj3-.told._ Then one
day she saw him with a child, a girl
of ton, who bore a certain fleeting resemblance to him.
He was married, then! An almost
Imperceptible sigh escaped her. Then,
as the absurdity of the iftatter dawned
upon her, she laughed softly to herself. What difference? Josephine and
Mario Louise had never dampened hor
affection for Napoleon. Slip ev��i began to feel a mild interest in tl^Jady.
Sometimes, for two or thra^Hveeks
nt a stretch, they would not encbiniter*
each other. It was after one of these
breaks that, watching him as he on-.-
tored tho car, hor interest and satis-'-
faction at seeing him again shone a 11v
unconsciously in hor face, and hlti;*.
glance was arrested by it.
As tho faint color touched her cheeks
under his gaKO ho looked casually
away. For a moment ho had thought
her somo half forgotten acquaintance
from tho welcome that ho had surprised in her eyes, but hor quick annoyance as sho returned to her reading
forbade that idea.
Sho did not look toward him ngtiln,
but moro than onco his keen, blue eye:*
routed upon her as sho sat there, slim
and straight, with masses of pale
brown hair piled upon her small head.
After this ho, too, began to watch of a
morning. A habit Is very easily formed!
Then for weeks ho disappeared. Tho
girl wondered anxiously what had become of lilm, Had he i;ono abroad?
Mayhap he wii." Ill���or dead! At the
thought she bIumiiI* llko ono hurl, for
he had become, in a whimsical way,

No man could dabble in the affairs of I
fate!
It was nearing the end of tho third
year. He took the same train now
with a" regularity which made her suspicious. The results of chance we're
never so unerring. Intention was apparent.
P.ut through it all save at unexpected
momently when the curtain would lift
for  a   second   and   an   unintentional
glance betray a deeper knowledge they
.regarded each other with tho baffling,
impassive eyes we keep for the unknown. No twentieth century romance
ever moved so slowly.
Then Billy Stoughton, who In this
particular case was the instrument of
fate, awakened cue mprning with an
unaccountable but imperative yearning
for Broadway. Five years earlier' an
equally compelling desire had landed
him on the ranch, where be had bided
contentedly enough up to that particular morning. Tho evening of the next
day fouud him in Denver, from which
place ho proceeded with as much haste
as the railroad facilities would permit
to New York.
On the day of his arrival he planned
to dine with Renwick, the closest of
his college friends. He had just time
to catch him by telephone before be
left his office, which he did, arranging
to meet .him at the elevated station and
go up town with him.
The first effervescence of their meeting over, Stoughton's beaming eyes
roved over the other passengers. A
slight figure at the far end of the car
held his glance. He looked again to be
sure. . *
'���Pardon me a minute, Jack," he said,
rising and making his way toward the
girl, with whom a moment later he
was shaking hands cordially and talking with the ease of long friendship.
Presently he returned to Renwick, and
ng he did so a revealing look passed
between the two. A bridge at last!
"It's Natica Alston, a cousin of mine,
you know," he explained to Renwick.
"Tough luck they had, I tell you. But
she's a plucky girl. She has earned her
own living now for four years."
"Will you present me?" demanded
Renwick eagerly.
"Certainly.   I'll take you up there
with me.   Natica will be glad to re-,
ceive any friend of mine."
"Thank you, old fellow; thank you."
Renw.iGk��~.paused-^awJcwardl*7.,__JS,e_
seemed to have something else to say,
but soarcely knew how to say it.
"When I said���asked you to introduce mo���I didn't mean the usual thing.
I'm going to ask you to do something
queer and to do it without asking too
many questions."
"What kind of a mystery is this?"
inquired Stoughton. "If I didn't know
that there Isn't a grain of romance in
you I should certainly think"���
"Now, don't think���there'3 a good
fellow," soothed Renwick. "Just follow instructions. Tell Miss Alston all
about me, and mind that you tell her
everything good that you can or I'll
wring your neck, and make an appointment for mo to call. Don't mako any
l&n-istake. I want to seo her and soo
tier alone.  I don't want you thoro."
s.Whon poor, mystified Bill Stoughton
broached tho subject to $atlca her behavior was doubly mysterious. No,
sho didn't want to know anything
about hhn.   Thon a moment later:
"Did you say ho Is a bachelor?" (Innocently.) "I thought ho was a -widower."
Stoughton, indignantly, "I thought
you knew nothing about him?"
"I don't, but ho woro mourning."
"That was for his mother."

   >'���"!���' %  BOWSER  WRITES A  PLAY  He Imparts the Plot to His  Wife, but Does Not Like  Her Suggestions, Which He  Thinks Are a Bit Sarcastic  [Copyright, J903, by C. B. Lewis.]  INSTEAD of sitting down to his  evening paper and cigar in placid  enjoyment, Mr. Bowser was nervous and uneasy, and now and  then he looked at Mrs. Bowser in a  furtive, Inquiring way. She knew that  he had something on his mind, but she  asked no questions, and dinner had  been over a full hour when at last, after walking up and down the room for  ten minutes, he said:  ! "I expect you'll sneer and ridicule,  as usual, but I am writing a play for a  friend of mine and should like to talk  with you a little about the plot."  "I shall be more than willing to talk,"  she replied as she repressed her astonishment with an effort "Your  friend is an actor, I take it?"  "He's going to be. He's been reading  lip for the last six months."  "What do you mean by reading up?"  "Why, he's been reading books which  tell a person how to become an actor.  He's also bought a wig and a sword.  If he gets the right sort of play, he's  bound to be another Edwin Booth in  time."  "I see. And you, have promised to  ���������write, him the right sort of play. That's  kind of yoUi; Have you got a plot to  match the wig and sword?"  Mr. Bowser didn't exactly like her  tone, but after a glance at her he passed it by and replied:  "I think I have struck it the .first  time, though some little changes may  be necessary. I will tell you the plot  as I have outlined it. The scene is laid  in Rome in the year 1125. The hero is  named Kybiffo. He is a young man  who has dared to aspire to the hand of  a princess, and the emperor has order-  *-ed-him-out-of-the-countTyT���������He-refuses-  to go. He not only refuses, but he asserts that he will remain and marry  the Princess Dogolsky. That's where  the first, act opens."  <'Doos he put on his wig and draw his  sword as he refuses to go?" asked Mrs.  Bowser.  "Ho don't, but I can put that in.  How do you like thc nanies?"  "Why, Kybiffo sounds very romantic,  and Dogolsky is something new and  SUM KNMW T'M'l' 1*M HAP 80*.IBTJII**U ON  JMH MINI..  ought to mnlio n hit. Whon Kybiffo is  in 11 hurry to speak to hor ho can ah-  brovinto hoi' jiaino 1o Dog, and on her  part sho can shorten his to Ky or  Ky-Ky,"  ���������������������������IInvo you started Into tlie funny  ��������� business nl ready ?" askod iWr, Bowser  iih tho red begun to show In his faeo,  "Of coui'so not, How irtniiy othor  characters hnvo you?"  ���������'Well, there's tho emperor, tho empress, twolvo guards, two executioners,  threo Ikm keepers, four litdlos of tho  ^ court, u tounchbnek and a fellow named  Pninlto. Ho Is also In Jovo with tho  princess, und tho emperor favors tils  suit. I've got to got rid of Dnmlto  somewhere in tho third act, but I havo  not sottlod on Just how to do lh Would  It look stagy to huvo hhn burled from  the edrrr* nf n pvenlritne1)"  "Who would do tho hurllnp?"  "I thought of Introducing n man from  Chicago, a fellow who had suddenly  Bono crazy and was hankering for  goro."  "I'm nfmld ff rrnrild look rather st'lf-  cd. If you nro looking for n novolty  why don't you havo him caught lu a  chceso press nnd squeezed to doath?"  "Woman, don't trifle with mo!" exclaimed Mr, Bowser as ho started up  with n glint in his eye.  "But I am not. In writing n play you  want to got nwny from old Hues. They  have been hurling men and women  from precipices for the Inst hundred  years, You hnvo simply to get him  Into the cheeso prens In a natural manner.   IIo can tnlto It for a telephone  box or a bathtub. However, we can  let that go tonight. After Kybiffo refuses to leave Home what happens?"  "The emperor send3 twelve guards to  give him the bounce."  "And does he overcome the twelve?"  "He does and leaves every one dead  on the stage. I've been thinking that  perhaps I had too many dead men lying around at once. Would you reduce  the number?"  "I think I should," mused Mrs. Bowser, with her chin on her hand. "It  seems to me that I would let at least  two get away to go back to their wives  ���������"id children. I'd he satisfied with ten  aeaa men at once. Does your man Kybiffo stay right there In the slaughter  house or go somewhere else to wipe  the blood from his sword and rearrange his wig?"  "By thunder, woman, but don't you  start in to guy me!" shouted Mr. Bowser as he stood up and towered over  her. "I was a fool to expect any help  from you, but I won't stand"���������  "I had no thought of guying you.  Your hero must make some decided  move after the ferocious conflict, and  I was wondering what it was to be.  He ^shouldn't stay and be seized by a  fresh guard,"  "He don't stay, of course. The princess, who has seen all from an open  window;'rushes in and beseeches him  to fly trotn her father's vengeance, and  he fiies-r-that is, he consents to go to  the house of a man named Bogstoff  and wait until there is a chance to bear  his ladylove away. He goes just as a  new guard of thirty men rush in with  orders to kill him on the spot That's  the end of the first act."  "What's the climax?"  "Why, he flies in one direction and  the princess in anotber."  "Doesn't he fall over a chair and she  over a sofa?"  "Is that meant for sarcasm?" asked  Mr. Bowser as a dangerous light shone  iu his eyes.  "Of course not. You must have a  climax���������something to take the breath  away, you know, and put the appetite  on edge for the next act. If you don't  have any falling over chairs or bumping against doors, the end will be rather tame. Where does the second act  open?" *'������������������-'.  "In the Souse of Bogstoff. Kybiffo is  thero, and ;Bogstoff's daughter makes  love to him and tries to cut the princess  "oTTC~SlIenB&f"^^  cajole him, but he turns her down."  "Does he havo on his wig and sword  at the time?"  "I���������I' dunno. Should he have them  on?"  "By all means. No actor can be a  hero without a sword and, wig. What  does Boggy's 'daughter do when he refuses her his band?"  "His name is Bogstoff, madam, and  I would thank you to remember it,"  stiflly replied Mr. Bowser.  "Well, Bogstoff, then. I like the  names of your characters as affording  excellent 6pportunities for abbreviation. Kybiffo can bo called Ky, Damlro  cau be called Dam, Dogolsky can be  called Dog, Bogstoff can bo called Boggy, and so on and so on. It was real  cute in you to think of such names.  Well, what follows?"  "Tho scheming girl, whom I have  not yet named, but shall probably call  Hell ino"���������  "There's another good abbreviation,"  chipped' Jn Mrs, Bowser.  He glared at her for half a minute,  doubtful what course to lake, aud then  continued:  "The scheming girl threatens to commit suicide, and whon Kybiffo smiles  at the idea sho'starts for the door with  a rush. Dnmlto, who knows her father  well and wants to borrow i-poO in cash,  Is about to enter, and sho ls just lu tlmo  to full upon his sword and havo It  pierce her heart,"  "How came ho to havo his sword  drawn aud ready to do tho piercing  act?"  "How camo he? It don't mako any  difference to tho audience as I can see.  That was a time when everybody wont  around with a drawn sword in his  hand, you know,"  "Woll?"  "As Hollino lies dead ber father  rushes In, and hero Is a grout point.  Ditmllo ot onco accuses Kybiffo of hor  murder, nnd tho fathor bollovcs Wm.  IIo rushes for his sword, nnd while bo  Is gone the two rivals tnunt each other  and begin to light, Whon old Bogstoff  returns he takes a hand In, nnd our  horo would hniro boon dono for by ttoo  two but for the princess suddenly rushing hi and usJug hor dagger to oven  things up,"  "But how does she happen to appear  at such a critical moment?" asked Mrs.  Bowser.  "Because I mako hor."  "Ob, I seo!   And docs sho kill any  ono with hor jowol hilted dagger?"  "Sho kills old ItOffKtofC, whllo hor  lover wounds Dnmlto."  "Vory good���������vory good! And then I  supposo you hnvo tho wounded Dnmlto  convoyed outdoors nnd laid on tho  street enr trnck so ns to mako It nppear  thot ho has boon struck by o car?"  "I hnvo nothing of the kind, inndaiii.  On tho contrary, I hnvo tho princess  tnko him to her houso to nim-o until ho  Js well ngnln. That's my second great  point. Her action makes Kybiffo insanely jonlous, nnd he goes to livo In n  envo in tbo mouiituhis.   Uo declares  that he will give her up, but"���������  "But he lives on roots and barks and  cannot efface her memory from his  heart," finished Mrs. Bowser.  "Yes, that's about the, way of it,"  sheepishly replied Mr. Bowser, who  was rapidly losing confidence in his  powers as a dramatist.  "And what else?"  "I���������I haven't got any further. How  do you like the outline?"  Mrs. Bowser clasped her hands and  stared Into vacancy for a moment.  Then she broke forth into hearty laughter. She couldn't have helped it if  there bad been a dagger at her throat.  "Madam, what's this?" shouted Mr.  Bowser as ho sprang up.  She tried to nnswer, but she couldn't.  She went into hysterics and laughed  by turns, and after surveying her for  three or four minutes he realized that  be bad been humiliated. He turned  and kicked over two chairs and walked  down the hall and donned his hat and  overcoat. Then he went out and banged the front door behind him and wandered through the darkness of. the  streets. His dignity bad suffered, ond  he was speechless as he entered the  bouse several hours later and quietly  went to bis room. M. QUAD.

Head off that hog and help mu get him  out."  "Head off your own ho:.*;, You could  have kept him out if .vou hnd wtinted  to, and I'll make you piiy for all tho  damage he's done."  It look the deacon fifteen minutes in  get tho hog buck Into iho rond, and  while running up and down tho garden  he made use of prelly sirring language,  though pone too strong for tho occasion. At Iiitorv.-i!*", ns ho rushed about,  the widow would i-nll out:  "i-wiicun Curler, you nro swearing  like a pintle, nml swearing 'a ug'ln tho  doctrines of religion."  "I'm not swearing," he would shout  back, "but I'll he hanged if I don't  knock the head off this Infernal old hog  If ho don't howl out of ilils!"  No sooner hnd tho deacon disappeared  down tho rond with his hog than tho  widow put on her bonnet and started  out among tlio neighbors to relnto tho  adventure. Sho not only laid bor dam-  iiftc* at $.j0, but sho could nnmo over  fifty different Hwoar words used in her  hearing by tlio den con. In two days  It was known for flvo miles around  thnt Doiicon Carter had fallen from  grnce, nnd nt tho end of a week tho  widow preferred charges nsnlnst hhu  In his church and bad bim brought up  for trial.  Tho town was pretty evenly divided  on tho question, whllo tho deacon only  naked for a fair trial. Tho first chnrgo  was that tho deacon hnd steered tho  hog into tho widow's ynrd out of spite?  tho second thnt hi* hnd been prnfnne tn  her presence. As to tho first chargo  the deneon said:  "Brethren, thoro nro those among yon  who havo set out lo drive a hog along  tho rond. Nnturo mndo tho mule ob-  otlnnto nnd tho hog perverse. If the  wind blnwcth where it listeth, the hog  goeflt whore ho plenseth until ynu can  hi'i.d him off with n club. From my  house to the Widder Creen's Is n mile.  In that mile tho bog hml boiled on mo  nbout thirty tlnu-s, and to the best of  my recollection the strongest word I  used was 'sugar.' " *  Thero was a murmur of sympathy-',  and admiration as the deacon paused,-  and it was evident that he had tho  people with him. .'  "I didn't see the gate standing open,"!  he continued, "but the hog did, and?,  though I fetched him a whack oyer the;  snoot with a club he rushed into thoj  yard. I ain't denying that he toyed;  with the flower beds. He just gambol-!  ed among the hollyhocks and rolled!!  among the pinks and pineys. The wid������!  ow stood there and might have headed'  him off, but sbe made no move to do'  so. It took me a quarter of an hour to  gtt tte bog out, and I nlnt denying  that I used strong language whilo.  chasing him up and down."  "Language to make my blood run*  cold," said the widow as a shiver pass-  ed over her, but the majority seemed to  feel that the occasion wan-anted strong-  language.  "I can distinctly remember all the  profane words I made use of," said tho  deacon in tones of contrition, "and !���������  am deeply grieved that they should  have slipped out when they did. You  see, the widder was twitting me at tho  time tbe hog was acting up, and tho  two things together were too mucli  for me. Yes, I was profane, and I admit it"  "The profanest words I ever heard  in all my life," said the widow, "and!  you all know how my dear, departed  husband used to swear."  "Then you admit the charge of profanity to be true?" was asked of the  deacon.  "I do, brethren. Yes, sir, I mado use  of such oaths as 'by Jim,' 'gaul durn  it,' 'dura your hide,' 'gee whiz* and  -and"-   * ;,  "And what?"  "It's an awful word, brethren, an  awful word, and I wouldn't say it  again if I was driviDg two hogs and.  met two widders. I didn't even use it  last year when I was stung by fifty,  hornets all at once."  "Was it so bad that you can't repeat  it?"  "I'd rather not. I'd rather plead'  guilty-and take my punishment."  "But I'll tellwhat it was!" exclaimed  the Widow Green as she bobbed up.  "He was trying .to'head off the hog,,  and the hog ran between his legs and  flung him down, and as he lay thero;  jgeking on the grass bejmook^ his fist,'  aTrnTana canW^utT^F^uTKl~er!r"~t~  All eyes were turned upon the dea-.  con, and he bowed his head in ..���������'shame,  and humility. \  "If a man can be deacon in a church;  and swear like that, then I want to  ��������� know," continued the widow. ',  A little later on she knew, as did all,  tho rest of Jericho. The findings in;  the case were written out and announced:  "As for the charge of spite, we find  that no person driving a hog is moral--!  ly responsible for the direction taken  by tho animal.  j    "As for tho charge of profanity, wo,  find that Deacon Carter made use of,  i one term closely approaching It, but as'  ho was laboring under great excite-"  mont nt tho time, and as be did riot re-f  i peat it later on, we find no real grounds'  for the charge and announce his record  as clear." ;  , And when tho widow heard of her,  failure to down tho deacon sho held up  her hands and gasped: ��������� s  "Well, if swearing is allowed, then  I'll sny gosh nil fishhooks!"

H; LOVETT CAMERON,  Author of a* Worth Wiimlng,** Etc 1  "Is it likely, nunt, that I should  havo gono away to London, nnd  written ns I did to poor papa, if I  had not meant to do it And you  cannot suppose that I should be so  base as to ignore all that has happened, and go back to him just because I am very poor?" I added, indignantly.  "But he knows nothing about it���������  absolutely nothing," cried my aunt,  throwing up her hands in despair.  "I took possession of your foolish  noto instantly and burnt it. No one  had scon it but your poor dear father and myself���������no one knows what  mado you rush off in that insane  way. One can easily make up some  plausible reason to tell the servants.  Let us say that it was business,  that, somo friend was taken ill; anything will do to put off questions  and surmises. Mr, Curtis need never  know anything about it. For Heaven's sake, Freda, don't bo such an  idiot as to tell him! Even if you are  not romantically in love with him,  lie will give you a wealthy home,  and you have nothing but starvation  or hard work to look to elsewhei-o.  Do not fly in the face of Providence,  my dear. I am sure it is bad  enough that the wedding will have to  be put off six months at least; it  wouldn't be decent before, but you  can stay with me till then, though  I am sure this sad death is a sore  trial for me," and the good lady began whimperingly to wipe her eyes;  "and all the breakfast from Gun-  -ter's that was to have come down  had to be counter-ordered and all.  Oh, dear���������oh, dear!" and Aunt Se-  lina dissolved into downright sobs,  less ' over her-brother-in-law's death,  I fear, than over tho'collapse of the  wedding festivities, and the breakfast from Gunter's in which she  had taken so lively an interest.  ���������-"I���������must-do-what���������I���������thin,k_jiJglit,VL.  was my only answer, with, I fear, a  hardening of the heart towards my  relative's outburst of grief.  "You are an ungrateful, undutiful,  headstrong girl," gasped Aunt Selina, between her sobs; and. then Hho  fled from the,room, slamming, the  door behind her with somo show of  temper.  I was loft alone, gazing disconsolately out of tho window, I was too  filled with my own many very .serious sorrows and anxieties to havo  much sympathy with my aunt's fictitious and imaginary grievances,  Dy-and-by tlio , messenger returned  from Eddington. Ho brought no note  in answer to mino, only a verbal  message.  Mr. Curtis had left Eddington Inst  night; but Mrs. Feuthcrstono would  do horsolf the honor of calling upon  mo during tlie course of tho afternoon.  Mrs. Featherstone! what had sho  to do with it I wondered. Suddenly  I recollected how Captain Thl'illohy  hnd seen hor :pa,qs by. in her victoria  as wo were corning out of I hi* lm...-l  in tho Strand! Of course she h.-itl  coon us; nnd equally, of course, ,-,ht*  had seized upon the incident eagerly,  to do mo an evil turn wiLh her brother,  Sho might havo saved hcrnoU  troublo of '.lundi-rlng mo,    had  known how determined    I    wns.  break off my ongngoniont   with   1  Hut oho did not know it,    and  wan probably now gloating ovor  chance that hnd thus placed    nm  tlio  sho  to  iim.  fillO  tho  nt  hor mercy. I augured no good from  her jirui-u: rd vbil to r.v, nnd i confess that, I looked forward to it with  a good den I nf (repldntion.  About tlu'ii' o'clock 1 ho Eddington  ctirriiigo dii)'" up to tlio door, and  my tinwelconi,' guest alighted from  It.  Mrs, Fonthi'i'iitono flailed In, nttlr-  ed, as usual, in brlllliinl. raiment,  Thoro wiih a prevalence of blur, und  scarlet in Iter drosn, which reminded  ino forcibly ������'f Iho coloiing <>f n cockatoo. She mikIu mc a cold bow, nnd  eat down nt some distance frma me  I saw nt onco by hor bent brown nnd  pinched lips that it was lo he war In  tlio denlh between ui". I accepted tho  position nf onco, und took the initiative  "To whnt. am 7 Indebted for the  honor of thlw most unexpected visit,  Mrs, Fealhi'i'slorii'? I had wished lo  seo your brother."  "Air, t ii run nun gono to lonn,  "A;..J  It,  )..'.-. .���������.!..'.);<���������..��������� T do sud  thnt nny one else cim fill his place,"  I nnswoiod.

"Under what circumstances, pray!"  I cried, flushing up hotly and angrily  ���������a display of weakness of which my  adversary was not slow to take advantage.  "Pray calm yourself, "Miss Clifford. Temper and angry denials, are  alike misplaced and useless in this  case. Tho facts, unfortunately, arc  but too certain, and tell too strongly against you."  "I am at a loss to understand  you," I said, faltcringly, and feeling suddenly sick at heart; for I remembered how Mark had said that  Clara Featherstone had a venemous  tongue, and would do me an injury  if she could. ������  ���������'."I will explain myself, then," slip  said, glibly, and with a growing satisfaction in voice and manner���������"I  will explain my meaning beyond a  possibility of your mistaking it. I  saw you, Miss Clifford, coming out  of a low-looking inn near tho Strand,  at an early hour in tho morning, in  tho company of Captain Thistleby, a  man of profligate and dissipated reputation."  "Indeed? I imagined him to be a  great friend of your own, Mrs. Featherstone," I interrupted, quickly,  for, like a watchful adversary, I was  not slow'to take advantage of the  weak points of my enemy's method"  of attack.  Mrs. Featherstons waved off my remark with disdain. "  "There ar,e many men, Miss Clifford, with whom a lady may claim  acquaintance in society, but with  whom, nevertheless, she would bo  very sorry to be seen walking about  the streets of London alone! But  that has nothing to do with thc  point.

I found that, as I had but  too much reason to suspect, you had  been closeted with a gentleman for  some hours in a private sitting-  room. I need not tell you how  shocked arid horrified my whole moral nature wns at such a fearful revelation of wickedness.! My duty, however painful it might "bo to perform,  was "flow., plain to me, I took the  evening train to Narborough, and  laid thc wholo case before my tin-  happy brother, I am thankful to sny  that, under Heaven, I havo been tho  instrument of saving him from cherishing a viper in his bosom, ���������.Vhen,  at my entreaties, ho consented to  mako inquiries, nnd found thnt you  had been missing from homo tho  night boforo tho morning I had seen  you in town, ho was forced to acknowledge with mo, that nothing wns  wanting in the comploto chain of  evidence which proved your utter  condemnation, Ho has only i'tnyed  to follow your poor father lo tho  grave, ns a mark of respect for his  long friendship nnd esteem for him,  and ho left Eddington last night,  and docs not mean to return to it  for a long time. I think I havo  snid quite enough vinon this nub joe t,  Miss Clifford."  "(iuiti* enough���������too much in cloud,  Mrs. Foatlk'i'.Hlone," I aw-wored.

And then Mrs. Featherstone passed  out of the room, and answered me  never a word as she went.  CHAPTER XX.  It was tho day before my final departure from Slopperton. My aunt,  had already gono home, and the following morning I was to go \ip to  her house in London, where sho and  Mr. Carr had offered me a shelter  until I could find something to do.  "Something to do" meant in niv  cose going out as a governess, or ns  a companion, or as a pupil teacher  in a school���������earning my living, in  short, by any of the dismal and uninviting methods in which alone it  has been decreed that a lady may do  so and retain her claim to tho namo.  I had secretly determined to go out  as a housemaid, or as a charwoman,  sooner than live long upon tho bread  of charity.  Mr. and Mrs. Carr were rich and  childless, but it had not occurred to  tho worthy couple to offer me a permanent home. Aunt Selina was a  fair-weather friend; as long as fortune smiled upon her relatives she  was filled with gushing and affectionate interest in them; but no sooner  did the world turn its back upon  them, and adversity and poverty  come to them, than sho drew in the  strings of her heart and of her  purse simultaneously, and wasted no  more either of her substance or her  feelings upon them.  She had mado a great favor of offering me a temporary home, even;  and had I anywhere else to go, I  would not have accepted' her offer.  But to go to Bella was now forbidden to ma. If I were to bo with  Bella, then Mark would know where  I was, and so knowing, might find  me out; and my one hope in life  now was that I might never sec nor  hear of him again. I was determined to become lost forever to him.  Our only safety was in absolute separation from each other. So, with  many a pang, I tore up my dear Bella's loving and kind letters, and left  them all unanswered. Onco I left  Slopperton, I knew that she would  (never be able to find me, for she  knew neither my aunt's name nor  address.  Well, the last day at Slopperton  had come; there had been a sale of  the furniture, and the proceeds had  paid off all our little bills, and de-  ������������������ frayed the expenses of my mourning  and loft me a few.lJouncls  my new life with  To D"e"g"uT  The house was  bare and dismantled; there were bills  up in the windows; and my solitary  box stood ready packed and strapped  in the hall.  Old Sarah went about weeping, for  she too was to depart on the morrow, and begin lifo afresh. I had  dragged a kitchen-chair into the dining-room, and was sitting there  miserably enough by tho dying embers of tho fire, pondering over tho  gloomy prospects of my futuro life,  when a sharp knock at the door  aroused me, nnd, to my amazement,  young Charley Flower1 walked suddenly into the room.  "Mr. Flower!" I oxclaimed, standing up in utter bewilderment at tho  sight of so unexpected a visitor;  "what on earth brings you hero?"  "Oh! pray forgive me, Miss Clifford, I couldn't help coming. I have  only just hoard of your loss, ami  that you nro turned out of your  homo, and all; and oh!" looking sud-  .rlenly nwny from mo round the bare,  cnrpotloaa, furnifnreless room���������"oh,  I i.m so 'sorry for you!"  "And you cn,mo to tell mo this?"  I cried, placing both my hands heartily into his; "just to tell mo you  ���������aro t'o'rry for me? How good of  you, Mr.- Flower! To you know  yourfl is tho first dii'intcrested sympathy in my troubles anybody has  given mo yot?" and the tears so long  driven back into my heart welled up  suddenly into my eyes.  "Well, .r. mustn't let you think I  nm quite dli'interented, either, MiKa  Cljfl'onl," m)id my visitor, somewhat  hesitatingly. "Tho fact in, thut ���������  that, Mi-is Clifford-oli, Freda!"���������-  suddenly lifting hl.s eyes in honest  eui'nosfuo'*** to my f.ieo���������"purely ,vou  niiiHt know thnt I lovo you I"  "Oil, J am ^o Horry!" J murmured.  "Why should you bo worry?" hu  cried, ciiRorly���������having onco broken  the ice, Chnrlcy uppnrontly found no  (lilllculty In proceeding���������"Why uro  you sorry, if J can mnko you happy?  I have hoard that your engagement  with Mr, CurtiH Is nt nn ond���������nnd no  wondor, for you novor loved him.

"Vm-tl\e i-be-neiid'" nnrl Chnrlpy  Flower ground Iii-1. teeth nnd hl������ fintg  together, nn though ho would Jlko to  murder her.  "And in the face of her letter you  are her������ asking mo to marry you,  Mr. 1 lower?"  "Po you suppose I believe ore  word of what that woman says? It's  all a tissue of lies from beginning to  end. You don't suppose a woman like  that could make me believe any harm  of you, do you? And it is just because of her ,spiteful letter that I  have come to you now, so soon,  without waiting any longer after  yqur poor father's death; just because I see how lonely and friendless 5*ou must be, darling, to be at  the mercy of'., that woman's evil  tongue, and how much you need  somo one to silence all such calumny  against you, and to fight your battles for you."  "Oh! Charley, how good you are!  TIow I wish I could lovo you as you  desorve!" And then I burst into a  flood of tears.  In a minute the young fellow wus  kn.vling by my side, stroking my  hands and my hair, and soothing me  by every fond and loving word.  , But I pushed him back firmly but.  gently.  "No, no, Charley," I said through  my tears, "I must not let you waste  any more love upon mo, my poor  boy. I don't know how I can ever  thank you and bless you for ail your  goodness and your love to me. If I  nnd not loved any one else    1    must  have loved you���������out of sheer gratitude. But alas! I can give you buck'  nothing but tears and blessings���������for  I have no love to give you���������it hns  all been given away long ago."  He rose from his kneeling position  at my side, and walked two or throe  times the length of tho room and  back before he answered me. and  then he stopped suddenly in front of  me with a very white face.  "Will you tell me the truth about  this, Freda?" he asked, gently.  I nodded.  "It is Mark Thistleby���������the man  who was at Eddington the night of  the ball���������whom you love, is it'not?"  '"Yes," I answered softly under my  breath; whilst a hot blush covered  my downcast face, at the thought of  how much shame and how little  prido there could be for me now in  the avowal of my love.  Thero was a little pause, and then  Charley spoke again; this time coldly and sternly:  "Tell me tho truth, then���������has he  behaved badly to you? Has he treated you like a blackguard? i'or by  heaven if he has������������������"  "Oh, no, no!���������a thousand times,  no!" I cried, looking up ait" him  suddenly, as he stood before mc, an1''  angry picture of avenging young  love. "What caii make you think  .aadi,_a_tlii*i.g,?__Ho_Jias_.bcen ovcry-  thing that is good to me always. He  i.s tho noblest of men; but���������but, alas!,  we can never bo happy. Ho is no  way to blame; but "  And my voice faltered.  "Hush, my. darling; say no more.  Do you supposo 1 want to cross-  question you, or to wring your secrets from you? It is enough that .1  know that no ono has behaved badly  to my darling."  And then ho suddenly bent over me  and took mo in his arms,  "I will not bother j'ou any longer," ho said somewhat brokenly,  "though I lovo you very dearly, I  will never troublo you again, only  give mo one kiss, boforo I go, from  your sweot lips!"  Dear, noblo-hoartod Charley Flower; I. think that oven Mark would  have forgiven mo thnt. I granted him  his last request; that I put up my  arms suddenly round his neck, and  gn.:*od into tho honest blue eyes that,  woro dimmed with tenrs, nnd put up  my face for his purling kiss.  "Good-bye," ho sulci, huskily, turn-  Inrr nwny suddenly to the door. "If  ever you want a friend, Freda, do  not forget that you have ono in mo  ���������nnd G'od bless you."  Before. I could answer ho wns pone,  nnd with him seemed to go at once  nil the sunshine and tho light which  his unexpected entrmieo hnd b.'otiylit  Into my lonely ani.1 desolate lifo.  And yot I was hnpplor for thill  viiiit���������hnppier to think that one  moro honest heart in this clesolnte  world loved mo, nnd wns truo to me,  thnn I hnd known of,  Poor f'hnr'loy Flower!

I stood leaning  n.HU...i������t Cho ,.;..-,"vV. fr-*.:::**, "''"h  some opon letters in my hand, und  looked misorably and hopelessly out.  My Aunt Hollna camo bustling into  1ho room, with hor now black fdlk  dross all crisp and fresh, and her  enp-ribbons flying out behind her.  Sim looked vtf.y and comfortably  well-to-do.     She stooped   down   nnd  Milled   the,  flu.  into   a  rheorful   ).);>:���������/������  "Any news, l-'redu?" *.h(-said to me;  but befere I could answer her, Uncle  t'nrr, who wns stono deaf, aud never  henrd ordinary conversation |nt'������r-  rtipted her and claimed her attention,  He was seated in a low arm-chair,-  drawn well up to the fire, and had  been awaiting her reappearance from  the lower regions impatiently.  ' 'What havo you ordered for dinner,  Selina?" Next to eating his dinner,  hearing about what he was going to  eat, was Uncle Carr's chief solace  during the twenty-four hours.  "Sole au gratin, mutton cutlets,  oyster patties, and roast pheasants,"  shoutqd Aunt Selina.  "Eh?" and up wont the ear trumpet. Aunt Selina repeated the menu  down it.  "No soup?" inquired her husband  in an aggrieved voice.  "Oh, yes; haro soup."  "Havo you got tho port for it, my  dear? and what sauce for tho cutlets?"  Being satisfied upon these two all-1  important points, Uncle Carr subsided into himself, nodding his head,  and giving vent to low chucklirigs  of pleasure at intervals���������indicative,  probably, of tho delights of anticipation which he was experiencing.  Her husband's curiosity being appeased, Mrs. Carr turned again to  mo.  "Any news this morning, Froda?"  6ho asked again. "I see you have  some letters."  "No," I answered glancing down  at the papers In my hand; "there is  nothing new. The lady in Hampshire is suited with a governess, and  the ono in South Kensington has  gone back to the music-teacher who  taught her little girls last year.  Everything falls through 1" I added,  with a sigh.  Aunt Selina gave a grunt expressive of disapprobation.  "And to think that you might  have been living on ton thousand a-  year now, if you had chosen!" she  said, angrily, as sho drew forth an  enormous bundle of knitting���������a counterpane for a bazaar���������and settled  herself down to it.  "And probably as miserable as   I1  am now!" I answered,  with a   very  sad smile.  "I've no patience with such, sentimental rubbish!" exclaimed my  aunt. "And pray what do you think  of doing now?"  "Well," "I said, doubtfully, "there's  an advertisement in Tho Times for  a bookkeeper in, an hotel wanted."  "Impossible!" cried Aunt Selina';  "pray remember that you have got  relations, Freda, I am not going to  allow you to disgrace your family.

The -'complexities of modern life" baa  become a stock phrase with, writers  and speakers, but no otli-er words 'will  expressively describe the mad rush to  and fro from duty to pleasure which  characterizes the daily life of the majority. In woman's realm especially  this Intermingling of work and play  means a contiuuous network of marketing and morning club, visits to the dentist and the dressmaker, hunting up a ;  music teacher for Maude and writing  aa acceptance to tlie Grundy's dinner  Invitation, with a charity meeting and  two afternoon teas to attend before it  is time to return home and dress hurriedly for dinner.  Sometimes it all goes through successfully only to bo spoiled by a tiny  white button, or, rather, the lack of a  Btitch taken in time. More often really  Important matters are forgotten at the  proper time only to be remembered at  the most inopportune period, while the  Bins of social omission cause many a  bad quarter of an hour to the busy  woman. That she finally succumbs to  nervous prostration is no wonder, but  It is not work which causes the final  blow so much as worry. Between the  desire to eliminate some of the nonessentials and the constant efforts of  recollecting the multiform engagements  life is one loi*f struggle after the unattainable.  A simple device and some will power  In the beginning are really all that is  necessary to slay the ghost of forgotten  things. Look at man, stalking through  life serenely, and take pattern. The  consciousness of a notebook to remind  him of things to be done and the time  of doing gives him a sense of reserve  force which is not possessed by his better half.  This effectual device may be called  the memorandum habit and is simply  a question of pockets and persistence.  A place in which to carry the notebook  and the art of continually using it are  all that is required. No more good  brain matter -wandering aimlessly  through space hunting for the lost  idea, no'more time wasted seeking for  "who," "which" and "where." The  morning and street dresses can easily  be fitted with pockets, while with reception and dinner gowns a chatelaine  may be worn which will serve to note  whatever is necessary.

You can put your shovel in and drop the coal just where it is  wanted���������no trouble, no taking- aim, no missing, no scattering, or  annoyance.  Everything about   the Sunshine   furnace   is on the same  scale  of thoughtfulness.  Sold  by all enterprising dealers.   Write for booklet.  LONDON, TORONTO, MONTREAL, WINNIPEG, VANCOUVER, ST.
