I thought a moment, sounding oepins  of undiscovered woo to see if tliere  were anything 1 should hesitate to suffer, and tliere was nothing.  "I'd lay me iloun an' dee," I said.  And I well remember how, when I  lay dying, as 1 believed, in rain and  darkness on the bloody field of Bull  Run, I thought of that moment and of  those words.  "I cannot say such beautiful things  as you," she answered when I asked  ber to describe her ideal. "He must be  good, and he must be tall and handsome and strong and brave."  Then she sang a tender love ballad. I  have often shared the pleasure of thousands under the spell of her voice, but  I have never heard her sing as to that  small audience on Faraway turnpike.  As we came near Richard's hall we  could hear the fiddles and the calling  off.  The windows on the long sides of the  big house were open. Long shafts of  light shot out upon the gloom. It had  always reminded me of a picture of Noah's ark that hung in my bedroom, and  now it seemed to be floating, with resting oars of gold, in a deluge of darkness. We were greeted with a. noisy  welcome at the door. Many of the boys  and girls came from all sides of the  big hall and shook hands with us.  Enos Brown, whose long forelocks  had been oiled for the occasion and  combed down so they touched his right  eyebrow, was panting in a jig that  jarred the house. His trousers legs  were caught on the tops of his fine  boots. He nodded to me as I came in,  snapped his  fingers and doubled his  as we looked at'them.  "This night is tlie end of many  things," I. remarked.  "And the beginning of better ones,  I hope," -was lier answer.  "Yes, but they are so far away," I  said. "You leave home to study, and I  am to be four years in college���������possibly I can finish in three."  "Perfectly terrible!" she said, and  then she added the favorite phrase and  tone of her mother, "We must be patient."  "I am very sorry of one thing," I  said.  j"What's that?"  "I promised not to ask you for one  more kiss."  "Well then," said she, "you���������you-  needn't ask me."  And in a moment I helped her out at  the door.  miliar creak of the stairway as 1 -went  to bed had an appeal and a protest  The rude chromo of the voluptuous  lady, with red lips and the name of  Spring, that had always hung in my  chamber had a mournful, accusing  look. The stain upon her cheek that  had come one day from a little leak  In the roof looked now like the path of  a tear drop. And when the wind came  up in the night and I heard the creaking of loue uiuo it snoko of the doom  of tliat house and its own that was  uot. far dis"*'Uit.

"Fifteen thousan' dollars," he said  ���������lowly. "Not a cent less/'  The man parleyed a little over the  price.  "Don' care f take any loss t'day,"  Bald David calmly.  "No harm done."

The average citizen of the United States, counting in the women and  children (which is not fair, but serves  for tlie moment as a basis to figure  upon), consumes in the course of a year  liquors which contain one and a third  gallons of pure alcohol. But the'Frenchman, who, though formerly one of the  soberest, has become, the worst drunkard in the world, absorbs annually  three and a half gallons of alcohol.  The Belgian and the Swiss come next,  with a consumption of two and four-  fifths gallons. Then follow the Spaniard with two and a third gallons, the  Italian with just a trifle less, the Englishman and German with two and a  tenth, and the Austro-Hungarian with  about one and three-quarters gallons.  On the other hand, the American citizen by no means stands at the top of  the list in respect to sobriety. The  Swede drinks only one and a sixth gallons of pure alcohol in a year; the Hollander drops considerably below him,  with one gallon even; the relatively virtuous Russian, notwithstanding his  much advertised addiction to vodka,  absorbs only a trifle more than six-  tenths of a gallon, and, finally, the Norwegian, who occupies a proud eminence  as the most abstemious man in the  world, barely exceeds a modest half  gallon of the stuff in a twelvemonth's  potations. It might be added for the  sake oif deflhiteness that the average  person in the United States annually  drinks one and a third gallons of proof  spirits (which are 50 per cent alcohol),  "^e^hird'������f"T^Ilorof"^ine"~aM^six-  teen and a quarter gallons of malt liquors, chiefly beer.  GOVERNMENT MAY MAKE METRIC  SYSTEM COMPULSORY.  ECSTASIES OF MECCA.  Scene   at   tlie   Annual   Visitation   of  Mohammedan Pilffrlmi.  Mecca, at the season of the annual  visitation of "Mohammedan pilgrims, is  thus described in Everybody's in "With  the Pilgrims to Mecca," translated  from the narrative of Ibu Jubayr All  of Bandar Adas:  "Like a gigantic catafalque, somber,  shrouded iu mystery, the Kaaba rises  out of the seething sea of white garbed  humanity that crowds the great sacred  square of Mecca. Its door is covered  with plates of solid silver studded with  silver nails. From the exterior of the  roof, above a stono marking tho sep-  ulcher of Ishmael, which lies at the  bnso of tlio northern wall, there projects a horizontal, semicircular ruin  spout flvo yards long, twouty-four inches wide, made of massive gold. Within Iho roof ts supported by throo columns of aloe wood; tho walls are hung  with rod velvet alternating with white  squares In which nro writton In Arabic  the words, -Alluli-.Tnl'Jolalah' (Trnlso  to God, the Almighty'). The building Is  packed with pilgrims, praying, weeping, beside themselves in an ecstasy  of passionate devotion. Mingled with  their voices there rises from outside the  chant of the Tnlbili, the song of the  winding sheet-, which every pilgrim  must sing on entering Mecca, on donning the sacred Ihrani, on entering tho  Ilnrnui, und on starling for Minn, the  valley of desire, nnd Arufut, tho mountain of compassion."  The Creation of the System���������The Met  rio Table���������Some of Its Great Advantages Stated by Prof. Maclennan���������  A Boon to Our International Trad")  ���������-A Very Important Question For  All to Consider.  There la a s'trong probability that  tlie Dominion Government will, within  a year or two, Introduce a bill making  the metric system of measurement  compulsory in Canada, says The Mall  and Empire. The subject has been regarded as an academic one for a long  time, but a step to make it a practical  Issue was taken when Prof. Maclennan,  of Toronto University, was recently appointed to travel about the country lecturing on the advantages of the system.  Prof. Maclennan will visit several  points In Ontario in the next few  months, carrying the metric propaganda. After the college term he will go  to cities outside the province. The idea  of *the Government is to educate public  opinion so that the future bill will arrive like a fairy godmother at an opportune moment, and satisfy a need  that the Government is now trying to  make the people understand. Whatever may be the merits of the system,  and whatever may be the state of public opinion a couple of years hence,  there can be no doubt that at present  there is no sentiment at all on the subject, either for or against a change. It  will ba Prof. Maclennan's business to  -stimulate and organize a feeling favorable to the new system.  The Creation of the System.  About the beginning of the eighteenth  oentury dissatisfaction with existing  systems of measuring weights, capacity and areas began to be manifested  by scientific men without regard to  nationality. Not only was every system then In use held to be defective,  but hardly "two were alike. Moreover,  "Butts of oapaclty had no reference to  units of area or weight. One spoke of  Inches, pounds and quarts as one spoke  ���������f cabbages, kings and sealing wax,  with no intimation of the vital relation among them. Among the Englishmen who found the English system  wanting was James Watt, the'invent-"  "���������r"of"the^team"engiffe7-wh^^  the adoption of the Paris pound as the  ���������unit of weight, and the length of the  seconds pendulum In Paris as the unit  ���������f time. He proposed that all subdivisions and multiples of these standards should be decimally connected. As  a result of these and other representations, the Academy of Science, Paris,  devised a system, known as the metric  system. This was in 1789. Four years  later the system was adopted, and  ever since has been compulsory In  Franoe. The basis of the metric system is the metre, roughly 40 inches,  exactly one ten-mllllonth part of the  length,of a quadrant of the earth's  meridian. Water at a certain heat was  tho basis of the taibles of capacity and  weight.  The Metrlo Table.  The unit of weight ls the gramme, of  which BOO are, roughly speaking, equal  to a pound. The unit of capacity Is  the litre, about equal to a quart. The  following tahle Is explanatory;  Prefixes'. L'th, W'ght. Capacity,  Mllll-    metre gramme litre        1-1000  system, as pointed out in an article IB  Cassier*s Magazine, do not appear formidable.  In Britain and Canada the system Is  now legalized, hut not compulsory. In  New Zealand It will be adopted within the year, and at the colonial conference in 1902 a resolution was passed  endorsing the metric system. A measure was passed through the House of  Lords establishing, it, but the sentiment  of the House of Commons was hostile,  and the bill was dropped. The Congress of the United States will probably deal with the subject at the present sessirin.  SILVER MINES.  The "Way Nature Forms These Deposits of Precious Metal.  The process by which nature forms  her silver mines is very interesting. It  must be remembered that the earth's  crust is full of water, which percolates  everywhere through the rocks, making  solutions of elements obtained from  them. These solutions take up small  particles of precious metal which they  find, here aud there.  Sometimes the solutions in question  are hot, the water haying.got so far  down as to be sejt boiling by the internal heat of the globe. Then they rush  upward, picking up the bits of metal aa  they go. Naturally heat assists the  performance of this operation.  Now and then the streams thus formed, perpetually flowing hither and  thither below ��������� the ground, pass through  cracks or cavities in the rocks, where  they deposit their lodes of silver. This  ls kept up for a great length of time-  perhaps thousands of years���������until the  pocket it filled up.  Crannies permeating the stony mass  in every direction may become filled  with the precious metal or occasionally  a chamber may be stored full of it as  If 1,000,000 hands were fetching the  treasures from all sides and hiding  away a mine for some lucky prospector  to discover in another age.

The old-fashioned 'Jroad-agent," or  highwayman, is practically a person  of the past, but there are still some  parts of the world in which he flourishes. The present troubled conditions  in Russia have made certain isolated  parts of that country excellent fields  for the operations of wandering Tartars. Quite recently a small stage  was held up near Akstafa, Transcaucasia, in broad daylight. As the coach  came around a bend in the hilly road  several mounted figures appeared.  There seemed to bo. no cause for ap>  prehension, for the riders looked quite]  peaceable. But whon the coach had  approched within about thirty feet, oi  thoin they suddenly leveled their rifles and rovolvers and ordered tlie  driver to stop. Tho man threw up his  hands in fright, and several passengers, wondering at tho sudden,'/stop.,  put their heads from tho ' windows.  Immediately the nmzales ofirevolvers  wero shoved in their faccs/Jnd thoy  wire commanded to step into the road.  While two of tho robbers guarded tho  stage driver and watched to seo that  nono of the passengers drew their  weapons, tho others went through the  pockets of the passengers and rifled  the baggage and the mail bags. When  everything of value had been taken,  the highwaymen ordered the coach to  proceed. Though there was quite &]  party of them they seemed to disappear the moment the stage started.  Except that the coach was really  robbed, tho whole performance was  quite like a comic opera hold-up and  was done quite as neatly.

THE DANGER THAT  LURKS IN COLDS  And How Serious Results Can be Avoided  by Use of  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine  Tliere is one way in which tlie rav-1 hand you out, but will insist on get-  vases of consumption can bo very!."ng a medicine with a reputation  materially lessened and that is by the j such as Dr Chase s byrup ot Linseed  prompt and thorough cure of coughs j and Turpentine.  and colds.  While weak lungs undoubtedly predispose to lung troublo and consumption, the beginning must always be  with a neglected cold.  Bv directing your attention to Dr.  Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine, we make known to you the most  certain aud effective means of curing  coughs and colds and preventing such  diseases as bronchitis, consumption  and pneumonia.  This is not a new medicine, not an  experiment, but a preparation which  has successfully stood the test ot time  and has today by far the largest sale  ,of any similar treatment.  If we can only help you to realize  the danger of neglecting coughs and  colds, we know that you will not run  the risk of depending on any cough  mixture" the druggist may choose to  Mr. John Clark, coachman, Port  Hope, Ont,, writes: "Being exposed to  all sorts of weather I frequently catch  cold. Last winter I was so bad with a  cold I could not speak above a whisper, and had great pains in the chest.  At last 1 feared it would develop into  consumption if I did not succeed in  getting proper treatment. A friend  advised me to try D*. Chase's Syrup  of Linseed and Turpentine and I began to improve before I had taken  half a bottle. One bottle cured my  cold which I believe would have proven very serious if 1 had not used this  medicine."  It is impossible for a doctor to prescribe for a mah more effective treatment for croup, bronchitis, whooping  cough, asthma, coughs and'colds than  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and  Turpentine. 25 cents a bottle, at all  dealers.  Bernhardt Kissed the Reporter.  (From "Success Magazine.)  In the eighties Sam Davis ������went to  Carson, Nevada, and assumed the  editorship of the Carson "Appeal,"  which, before lie went actively into  State politics, was one of the most  widely  quoted  country  papers  in  the  United States. When Sarah Bernhardt first passed through Nevada on.  lier western tour, the "Jixaminer,"' ot  San Francisco, wired Davis to board  tlie "divine Sarah's" train at Keno  and escort hor into California���������also to  ! get a good interview en refute. Mr.  Davis made himself so agreeable to  the entire company that Bernhardt  insisted that the "romantic monsieur  of tlie press" be assigned by the "Examiner to escort her through the  mazes of western life. Mr. Davis  turned San Francisco upside down for  her entertainment and even arranged  a number'"of attractions to show her  a sample of western activity under tlie  stress of high emotion. When, the  company left San Francisco, and farewells were being said, Bernhardt  walked up to Davis in the presence of  the admiring throng, and kissed hinl  on either cheek and on the lips.  "On the cheeks," she exclaimed,  with a naive toss of her head, "for the  'Examiner' and the 'Appeal;' on the  lips for yourself."  Sam Davis, for the secoud time in  his life, blushed, but recovered himself in time to remark thai; there were  a whole lot more up-country papers  he represented, all of which would  like to Iiave him return to Nevada  with similar tokens.  The Fall of a Noble Word.  The word "slave," which is happily  Kites for Life Savers.  London.- F- Cody considers that a  1 tload of shipwrecked persons who jused seldom unless metaphorically in  lave a kite to fly are far more likely ithig countryf is a word of brilliant  to bo rescued than a kiJ&ess j$f ������������^ historical antecedents. Its original,  He argues ti���������\l���������\������tJ chance of | the Russian "slava," means glorious,  heina seen than a small boat low down and is the title of; that race which  being seen i- I subsumes  the  Russian people.      But  m tne_ "iu.       t     t , ���������i: f��������� i,; = ^ when the Germans reduced hosts  of  the Slavs to servitude, their name,  from malice or accident, as Gibbon  says, became synonymous with '.servile." It retains no more suggestion  of its racial origin now than does  I'ogre," which is really "Hungarian,"  from,a confusion of the Magyars with  the Huns, and of both with the terrible Tartars.  He has built a boat to exemplify his  theory. It is an open three-tonner;  length, 21 feet; beam, 6 feet, and is  driven by petrol. It was launched on  Crystal Palace Lake the other day and  christened Lola by Mrs. Cody.  Cody invited a number of women to  step aboard and play the part of castaways. Away went the Lela up the  lake, and at the right moment Cody  unloosed a double-bodied bat-shaped  kite, six or seven feet long, which  soared into the air to a height of 200  ."Yards, and it could be easily understood how  such an  object out at set.  "WD  uld-afeti'38Wfehe-atte4i,tion,ToX_a_J)MIr  ing vorssol, although miles away  Cody" intends to sail in the boat from  the Isle of Wight to Brighton and fly  the kite to seo how it attracts the attention of a steamer. Then he will  take the Lela aboard some vessel sailing for South America and after two  days will bo cast adrift,  He will haul the kite, keeping it  flying until picked up by some passing  Vessel. Then, after a day or so, he  will ropeat tlio experiment, and so go  on until ho reaches South America.  Tho object is to prove that small lifeboats cannot, drift along for any length  of time without being seen if thoy have  jit kite flying.  ' HEALTH  IN THE HOME.  'Baby's Own Tablets are equally  ���������good for little babies or big children.  If a child is suffering from any of the  minor ills of childhood a few doses  of the tablets will cure it. And an  occasional dose to the well child will  prevent sickness. Mrs, A. Mercler,  Rlvloro Ouello, Que., says:���������"My baby  wns cross, irritable, did not sleep at  night and did not seem to thrive, but  since giving hor Baby's Own Tablets  nil this is changed. She now etuts  well, sleeps woll and ls growing fat.  The Tablets have provod a blessing  to both myself and the child." So say  all mothers who have usod this medicine, lltihy's Own Tablets nro sold  hy all druggists, or you can get them  from the Dr. Williams Medicine Co,,  Bi'ockvillo, Ont,., at 25 cents a box.

Sleeplessness���������When the nerves are  unstrung and the whole body given  up to wretchedness, when the mind  is filled with gloom and dismal forebodings, the result of derangement of  the digestive organs, sleeplessness  comes to add to the distress. If only  the subject could sleep, there would  be oblivion for a while and temporary  relief. Parmelee's Vegetable Pills  will not only induce sleep, but will  act so beneficially that the subject  will awake refreshed and restored to  happiness.

India produces more than seven and  a half million dollars worth of    gold  yearly, but the world at large is none  the better off.    Much    gold    is    also  shipped there, but littlo comes back.  Once let a gold coin get into a native's  hands and thero is the end of it.   He  neither spends it nor puts it in the  bank.    Centuries of oppression    have  taught him to hoard, with the result  that all of his gold except tlmt mado  into jewelry, is promptly buried. An  able authority considers that in the  Bombay Presidency alono is buried GO  million dollars worth of goldi In  China, too, matters are nearly as bad.  Those two countries, India and China,  are estimated to absorb between them  12 tons of gold a yonr, practically- all  of whioh is lost forever.  THE SUNLIGHT  RUB ON SUNLIGHT SOAP  LEAVE 30 TO60 MINUTES  RINSE   WELL  Sunlight Soap is better than  other soaps, but is best when  used in the Sunlight way (follow  directions).  Hard rubbing and boiling are  things of the past in homes  where Sunlight Soap is used as  directed.  Sunlight Soap wil! not injure  even the daintiest fabric or the  hands, and the clothes will be  perfectly white, woolens soft  and fluffy.  The reason for this is because  Sunlight Soap is absolutely pure,  cont&ins no injurious chemicals  ���������indeed, nothing but the active,  cleansing, dirt-removing properties of soap that is nothing but  soap.  Equally good with hard or  soft water.

An eminent Japanese bacteriologist  has shown that the acids of lemons,  apples and other fruits���������citric acid,  malic acid���������are capable of destroying  all kinds of disease germs. Cholera  germs are killed in fifteen minutes by  lemon juice���������or apple juice, and typhoid  fever germs are killed in half an hour  by these acids, even when considerably diluted. If you squeeze a lemon  into a glass of water containing cholera germs and let it stand fifteen or  twenty minutes,' you may drink the  water with impunity, as the germs will  be dead. These juices will kill other  disease germs. Instead of telling a  man to have his stomach washed out,  we can now tell him to drink orange  juice, which will cleanse the stomach  as thoroughly as a stomach tube, pro-  -���������t*ided-i'>-*be-not-a-case~of-gast<rie-eat-  arrh.

Brian in the stress of business  had forgotten that he had promised  to take Madge to the theater and had  not even telegraphed her that he had  an important interview to meet. Thereon Miss Carline had very properly sent  back the ring and had refused to listen  to any explanation, a proceeding which  led Brian to vow that he would seek  pardon no more. In turn Madge decided to search for forgetfulness in  travel abroad.  The only person who displayed common sense was Howard Carline, who  furnished Madge and her mother with  money for the trip and encouraged  Brian in his manly stand against a  woman's whims. But, while his sympathy had been plentiful, his allowance  of money had been small indeed, and  even Madge had complained of the  smallness of the sum.  "That's all right," he said cheerfully ;  enough.   "I'll fix a code, and you can  send for more when this is gone."  "I think," said Mrs. Carline, "I had  better send it by wireless from Nan-}  tucket on the way "across.   We shall  need  it almost as  soon as we get  'there."  Something In her husband's laugh reassured her, and nothing more was  said. Madge looked back on the city  where her heart lay buried, then, after  a merciful interval of seasickness, looked forward to! a winter on the continent, while Brian at his desk in her  father's office tried to persuade himself she was nothing at all to him  now that she had so clearly shown her  lack of tolerance.  But he did feel lonesome, and he felt  more so'when Mr. Carline announced  his intention of taking a trip west "I  guess you can run the office all right"  he said to Brian as he stood on the  platform in the train shed and nervously fingered his sleeper ticket.  ^'Ta^e^6M'^aTeVn5f~things~and~for--  ward any cablegram to me immediately." Then he had passed through the  gatey leaving Brian very much alone.  He had taken a place in Howard Car-  line's office at a time when his engage-  '*J WANT TO KNOW   XV  YOU  ItEOEIVED  A  OABLB i'JIOM MOTHEH."  ment to Madge had first been announced. Thero wns no ronl necessity for  his working, but ho liked to consider  himself useful, nnd in two yonrs ho  hnd becomo Invnlunblo to his employer.  Now ho found somo rofugo from hia  thoughts In hnrd work, and until tlio  cablo camo announcing tho safe arrival  of Madge and hor mother ho bad almost convinced himself that be bad  forgotten.  IIo hnd forwarded the cablegram to  Mr. Carllno, rejoicing in,their safe arrival, but when a itooond coble came  two days later his hands shook so that  be could hardly open tho onvolopo. Ten  minutes Intor ho had sent a telegram  reading, "Mrs, Carline dangerously in;  am leu vmi* on toUuy a summer," aitcc  which he gave the chief bookkeeper Instructions about running the office nnd  was driven to the pier of tho liner sailing that noon.  A week later n four wheeler drove up  to tho entrance of the Carleton hotel In  London and a young mnn strode across  tlio sldowalk Just In time to notlco two  Udios whisk past In a hansom, II*  would bave got Into tbo cab again haa  not the elder lndy pushed up the trap  ���������nd ordered her driver to stop, Sho  came across the sidewalk to llrlan.

"Mow  have you been r  "Never better,"  she said,  wltb 9  iftugn.* "i nave not seen Madge iooKing  so well in a long time. What brings  you over?**  "Nothing much," he said, with aa  elaborate assumption of indifference;  "just a customer I thought it would be  best to talk with instead of cabling."  "Come and see me this evening after  dinner," she urged. "Madge is going to  the theater with friends, and we can  have a long, quiet chat"  They had their chat but Brian was III  at ease. The more Mrs. Carline questioned him regarding his presence in  London the more uneasy he became,  and he was glad when at last he could  find an excuse to retire. m  He had the unpleasant knowledge  that he had blundered somehow. In  some way that cablegram had been  misread. Probably there had been an  error in it, but he could not imagine a message which would admit of  such a mistake. At any rate, it would  never do to confess that he had crossed  the ocean to come to the woman for  whom lie professed an utter indifference, and he blindly hoped that the  cablegram he had sent to Mr. Carline  immediately after having seen Mrs.  Carline and Madge in good' 'h**������i*  would 'reach him In time to keep him  from coming.  Brian could have returned home next  day by another line, but he assured  himself that now that he was in London it would be well to stay over &  steamer and have a little rest after all  he had gone through with. He hung  about the Carleton, catching an occasional glimpse of Madge as she camo  and went with the young people whom  she knew in town.  If Madge felt any curiosity regarding  his presence she did not betray it after  a single comment upon his presence.  His being id London was a matter of  utter indifference to her, and Lord  Robert Sefton, had he known it had  cause to be grateful to the strapping  young American for the graciousn'ess  Madge displayed toward him.  Teh days had passed before she  made further comment, then she came  in one afternoon to find her mother  poring over a little red covered book.  A cable, blank lay on the desk before  her, and Madge paused by the table  to kiss the placid face.  "Cabling, mumsey?" she cried. "I'll  jwarrant you want more money."  "Yes," admitted Mrs. Carline. "You  see, I cabled for some two weeks ago,  but your father was out west, and I  guess Brian could not read the cipher."  "Is it a code?" she cried. "How interesting!   Let me see it."  For a moment her eyes traveled over  the paper, then she turned to her mother. "Is this the same one you sent  before?" she demanded. Her mother  bowed. The girl's lips brushed her  mother's cheek, and she went on toward her room, pale and shaken. She  knew now.  That evening Brian, lingering over  his coffee, was surprised to see Madge  coming toward him. Ho sprang to his  feet as she came to a halt at his table.  "Be seated,"  sbe said  quietly;  "I  don't want to keep you standing.   It  would attract attention." Brian glanced {  to where Lord Bobby was sitting and  smiled quietly to himself.  "I want to know," sho began, "if  you received a cable from mother before you left New York."  "Yes," ho assented; "a cablegram  camo tho day I loft."  "And you came at once?" she Bald  softly.  Brian flushed. "Yes," ho admitted.  "I did not know then that it was a*���������  trick."  "It was not a trick," sho protested.  "It wns on������ of father's schemes to  show mo what a foolish girl I had  beon."  "Your fathor!" ho echoed. "I supposed that ho was out west"  "it was tills way," sho explained,  "You see, father gavo us a codo by  which wo wore to communlcato with  him if wo needed anything. Ho know  very well that we should havo to send  for money. Ho gavo us very littlo  when wo left  "'MndgO' wns tho codo word for  'send,' 'dangerously' was tho codo for  '500' and 'ill' was tbo word for 'dollars,*  Tho mosaago road: 'Madgo dangerously ill. Como immediately.' What It  meant was 'Bond $500, Hotel Carlo*  ton.'"  "Then It was just a trick to got me  over horo?" ho asked coldly,  "It was a dovice to show me my own  silly heart," she suid softly.  His hand caught hers on the table.  "Madge," bo said fervently, "I wish  , thoso electric lights would go out (or a  minute,"  "Mother Is upstairs Jn our sitting  room," she suggested. "Let's go up  and tell hor that we havo read the now  meaning of Uio cipher."  NEW STYLE GRAFTING.  Successfully Used in Colorado In Top  Working Old Orchards���������^Commended By Farm and Fireside.  At the recent meeting of the American Pomological society the following  method of grafting was described by  a gentleman from Colorado, who stated  that it was the most successful method that he had employed in top working old orchards and that it could be  used on branches as large as four inches in diameter with great success, It  impressed me as being far better than  H  AC?  4  With the Help of  the Ghost  By TROY ALLISON  Copyright, 1905, by Homer Sprague  a  CLEFT STOCK.  ordinary cleft grafting, especially for  large stocks, from the fact that the  surfaces of the union were all smooth  and the scions held more firmly. The  method of procedure is as fallows:  After determining where ��������� the graft  had better go, the stock is cut off with  a fine saw and the cut made in the  side of the stock, as shown at A. This  is then cleaned out with a knife, as  shown at B. A saddler's knife is used  for this purpose, the outline of which  is shown at E in the second cut. The  scion ls cut as is usual in cleft grafting and is driven with some little force  Into the groove in the stock, as shown  at C and in the cross section at D.  It will be found that after this graft  has been driven in it can only be pulled put by using considerable force, and  It is held much more firmly than in the  Miss Wesley actually had begun to  wish she could look older. To be thirty-eight and look twenty-five had its  trials. In this instance it had its own  particular drawback���������the colonel was  fifty.  If the colonel had been less certain  that the younger men of his set were  altogether desirable and that they were  in every way suitable for her to select  a husband from* Miss Wesley would  have been better pleased and probably  would never have regretted looking so  young. As it was the colonel, although  bis military bearing and iron gray hair  attracted attention under all circumstances, thought of his age and hesitated to ask the popular young woman  to marry him.  The incident at the Mabreys' dance  convinced Miss Wesley that she had  given plenty of opportunities. It appeared necessary that she give him not  only opportunity, but a helping hand.  This, she decided, she was.quite prepared to do. It only remained for her  to decide the mariner of its doing.  On the night of the dance he had  come nearer mustering the necessary  courage than ever before, but just at  tlie moment when the air became  slrs^i*: charged with sentiment young  Dr. Howell had come to their corner  of the library, and the colonel, with an  almost imperceptible sigh, had said the  young folks always had something to  talk over and he would go get his supper and be off to bed as an old man  should.  Miss Wesley felt a moisture in her  eyes and decided, then and there, upon  the virtue of the helping hand. There  was only the question of when and  how it should be administered.

Sho took with hor Dr. Howell's box  of candles, but she woro one of the  colonel's red roses In the bosom of hor  traveling gown. Celeste, hor French  mold, sat near her, mulling ns if there  were someUiIng amusing In the atmosphere.  Three weeks later Colonel Carr met  Dr. Howell. "Arid to think'or such i  beautiful woman experiencing the lost  et that wonderful head of brown hair!"  sympathetically. ?"They return to tb������  city this afternoon, the coachman telli  tne," he added.  The colonel rang the doorbell thai  evening, feeling ill at ease as to ho****  he should express his sympathy for tbt  woman he loved.  "Yes. Miss Wesley is at home an*  will be down In a moment." said O  leste, showing him into the library.  Frances Wesley came in, ber Ion*  Wa-ck dress trailing softly.   The coio  nel's eyes Immediately fastened tiiem-  selves upon the snowy hair piled in a  fluffy muss upon the top of her head.  '���������You see, I am to be clashed among  the ohl folks henceforth, colonel," she  responded to tlie look in his eye:*!.  "1 .can't; offer   sympathy,"  he   said   .  slowly.   "You are more bountiful than  ever."  The color that came into her face  justified his words.    "I'll sit out Uie  dances with you now, colonel, instead  of filling my programme .with names.  Tbe younger set will stand loo much  In awe of my white hair to ask me to  dance."  "You poor girl!"   lie took her band  commiseratingiy.   "It is awfully hard  on you, but I wish to heaven'you could  sit with me throughout life instead of  throughout a dauee."  She gave him a quick smile. "Well,  maybe if you asked me"��������� She hesitated.  "If I would ask you!" he "exclaimed.  "That's what I have been trying to do  for four years. I couldn't imagine you  could care for a man so much older  than yourself. I don't believe I would  have the courage now, but your lovely  white hair makes us seem more akin."  He leaned over and touched the whlto  fluffy mass with his lips.  Miss Wesley sighed, then gave way  to an irrepressible giggle of amusement *  "Colonel,.do you think you could lova  a deceitful woman?" she asked.  The colonel, altiiough fifty, used the  perfectly proper reply to such a question from a woman.  "I could���������you���������under any conditions,"  rapturously.  "Listen,to this story, colonel." She  took both his hands in hers and kept  her eyes on his. "Opce upon a time  there was-a girl of twenty-four who  bad~sp-severe-an~attaclr-of-feyer-tbat���������  when she recovered and her hair grew  again it was snowy white. Her relatives thought white hair at her age  would place her in a trying position,  so they insisted that she dye it its natural color���������broAvn."  The colonel looked startled, but she  motioned him to keep still.  "She kept it dyed for ��������� fourteen  years," she continued, "and kept looking ridiculously young. She didn't  mind that���������except for the fact that tho  mnn she cared for was���������fifty���������nnd was  afraid to nsk her to marry him on account of the seeming difference lu their  ages."  The colonel again grow restive, but  she hold his hnnd fast and hurried over  the rest of tho story.  "It was Celeste's plan," she said, "and  it struck my sense of humor very forcibly. Celeste bas a dramatic soul���������she  made the plan, and 1 acquiesced. You  see, the poor old family ghost gavo mo  an excuse for letting my hair be natural without people finding out. that X  had been imposing on flic public all  these years. Do you think you could  care for a fraud?" There was a slight  note of anxiety In hor voice,  Tho colonel evidently could and  would, He refused to obey the restraining bands, but took her iu bin  arms triumphantly.
