He was a cheery old  patriarch, with handsome features and  hair failing in ringlets about his shoulders. No one who had seen him could  possibly forget him. One day he was  accosted by a very dirty little bootblack with his "Shine your boots, sir?"  Blaikie was impressed by the filthi-  ness of the boy's face. "I don't want  a shine, my lad," said he. "But if you  will go and wash your face I'll give  you a sixpence." "A'richt, sir, was  the lad's reply. Then he went over  to a neighboring fountain and made  his ablutions. Returning, he held out  his hand for the money. "Well, my  lad," said the professor, "you have  earned your sixpence. Here it is." "I  dinna want it, auld chap," returned  the boy, with a lordly air. "Ye can  keep it and get yer hair cut."  AyerkPills  Act directly on the liver.

Mary's Ferry, York County, N.  B��������� Sept. 18���������(Special).���������That Dodd's  Kidney Pills will cure Diabetes, one ol  the most deadly forms of kidney disease, has been satisfactorily proved by  . Mr. Thos. Harrison, of this place.  Speaking of his cure Mr. Harrison  says:  "I began to suffer with severe pains,*  jabove the region of the Kidneys. When  I lay down it was torture to get   up  ayain.   My appetite failed and I lost  flesh rapidly.  "I doctored with several physicians  but it was all no use. Shortly after  this I began to urinate blood and then  I'knew I was in the grip if that dread  monster Diabetes.  _ At the time a friend prevailed on  ,"^eTtS~try~a~box'df-Dodd's-Kidney-Pllls-  and they did me so much good I con-  aimied the treatment until I had used  three boxes.

Tba expression owes its birth to the  business energy of one Joseph Dun, a  bailiff, of Lincoln, in the reign of Henry VII He was reputed to be so expert  tend successful In the difficult art of  'bad debt collecting that when a creditor had a troublesome debtor to deal  with It became customary for sympathising friends to say, "Why don't  you TXm' him?" And ao the noun  became a verb, and a verb it has re-  . malaod ever since,  tf Marriage Divination.  -"Malte a plain cake, and mix therein a wedding ring and a small silver  ������������������cola���������oa a sixpence.

Sho who gets  the Mng will be married very soon afterwards;  but she who trots the sixpence will dlo an old maid."   (What is  to be tbe fate of those who get neither  wedding ring nor sixpence we are not  told.)  Pin Lore.

Empty wine and spirit bottles are called "dead men" because the  alcohol, or spirit, I9 no longer In them,  When a man's spirit leaves his body,  he ls a dead man, and so, when the  spirit is out of the bottle, the bottle is  (humorcrusly) called "a dead man."  A Good Turn.  Now that the old treadmill ls a thing  of the past, lt is interesting to learn  that it was once vaunted by the "authorities" as a cure for���������rheumatism!  In 1823, Mr. Home Secretary Peel, having officially asked the visiting Justices  what effect the then recently introduced "wheel" had upon the prisoners'  health, they assured him that lt was  in every way beneficial, and cited, as  proof of Its sanitary virtues, the case of  a rheumatic woman, who as she was  leaving Brixton prison after a month  on the treadmill, being asked how she  felt, replied that her rheumatism was  entirely cured.  A Maligned, Ecclesiastic  The Scottish Archbishop (and church  historian), Spotiswood, who in 1639  was put to rest in Westminster Abbey  after 74 years of strenuous life, bore  the sinister f reputation of having, in  -his-early_clerical������stage,_cojmmitt������d_lhe,  ���������to Scottish Church folk���������shockingly  heinous sin of playing football on the  Sabbath day, and this is how he acquired it: Returning from church one  Sunday, he came upon a disorderly  rable who were playing football, and,  the leather making in his direction, to  prevent It striking his shins he stopped it with his foot, and through that  natural defensive action he gained the  sttgma which attached to him during  the remainder of his career.  The III and the Well.  To St Oswald's Well, In Benton,  Northumberland, is attributed the virtue���������providing certain simple formalities be observed���������of predicting the recovery or otherwise of a sick person  from his malady. The local tradition ls  that If an undergarment, taken off the  patient and thrown Into the well, floats  on the water the patient will reoover, but  If lt sinks his oondition Is hopeless, The  well, as its name Indicates, la under  the patronage of St. Oswald, and In  Popish times lt wm customary for  those who used the test to tear off a  piece of the test garment and hang It  upon an adjacent bush, by way of  acknowledging  the matter,  period of Its vogue ls described in an  old manuscript preserved In the Cot-'*  tonlan library: "Of these rags," says  the writer, "I have seen such numbers  aa might have made a fayre rhetna in  a paper myll,"  The Blind Man's 8tory.  There li a pitiful story told In the  Bookman of Philip Bourge Maraton, the  blind English writer. One day a particularly good idea came to him, and  ho sat down to his typewriter with enthusiasm. Ho wrote rapidly for hours,  and had nearly finished the story whon  a friend came In. "Read that," aald  Marston, proudly, "and tell me what  you think of It." The friend atawl  at the happy author and then at th*  blank sheets of paper In his hand b*������  foro he waa able to understand the  little tragedy. The ribbon hnd been  taken from the typewriter, and Mars-  ton'a toil was for nothing. He never  '.id the heart to write that story again.  Cucumbers and melons are "forbidden fruit" to many persons so constituted that the least indulgence is followed by attacks of cholera, dysentery, griping, etc. These persons are  not aware that they can indulge to  their heart's content if they have on  hand a bottle of Dr. J. D. Kellogg's  Dysentery Cordial, a medicine that  will give immediate relief, and is a  sure cure for all summer complaints.  Senator Gallinger was talking about,  certain shipping reforms that he has  in mind. These reforms," he said,  "would be made easily, would be made  at once, were not human nature the  same in shipping circles as it is all  the world over. "By that,I mean that  the people in the wrong always think  the other side is in the wrong. They  are like a Concord woman whose son  enlisted for the Spanish-American war.  "Her son, a raw recruit, was naturally  awkward at first. He was, in fact,  the most awkward youth in his squad.  Nevertheless, his mother regarding  him as he marched away, amid music  and waving flags, could hardly admire  enough his military grace and skill.  "���������uu; she said, 'look, look! They're  all out of step but our Jim!"  TEETHINfi WITHOUT TEARS  Mothers who have suffered the  misery of restless nights at teething  time, and watched their babies in the  unhelped agony of that period, will  welcome the safe and certain relief,  that Baby's Own Tablets bring. Mrs.  WrGr-MundlerYorkton���������NrWrT-says.-  "When my little one was cutting her  teeth she suffered a great deal. Her  gums were swollen and inflamed, and,  she was cross and restless. I got a  box of Baby's Own Tablets, and after  starting their use she began to improve at once, and her teeth came  through almost painlessly. The Tablets are truly baby's friend." This  medicine is guaranteed to contain no  poisonous opiate or harmful drug. It  cures all the minor ailments of little  ones and may safely be given to a now  born Alid.

Andrew Carnegie tells this as one  of his experiences at Skibo.

"Protein" in food is tlie food element that makes bone, muscle and*  brain.  Pure flour contains more protein,  in most useful form, than any other  food���������but the flour must be pure.  Bran and shorts are waste���������if your  flour contains this waste, it is proportionately short in "protein."  Now, if you buy an inferior, poorly  milled flour, you are paying for bran  and shorts, not "protein," and to that  extent you are wasting money.  ROYAL HOUSEHOLD FLOUR  is milled to make it the purest in the  world: therefore it contains most  protein, is most nourishing, is most  economical to use.  It pays the housewife to insist upon  getting "Royal Household" guaranteed flour, instead of taking a poorer  flour wKETHegrocer'm^BeiSt^^  ested in selling  Ogilvie's Royal Household Flour.  t������*9������������*������������e������������������������������������������������������������*������������*B������)������*������������������������������*������������������������tt������������)������������*������������������*������������������������������**  Nordy���������Eron Optimism may be  mado a nuisance.

H. Hawes in an article in the  Maine Farmer urging Its readers to  turn from potato growing to dairying  writes as follows:  A farmer's success depends very  largely on the fertility of the soil and  whether or not its fertility is maintained pr increased, and the problem  with him should be not simply how can  this be dono 'with the least labor, but  how can It be done most successfully  and economically, and that ls by selling those products of the farm which  contain but a small amount of the fertilizing elements instead of those containing a large amount.  All products of the farm contain certain amounts of the very same fertilizing elements which we purchase in  commercial fertilizers, and there is no  other product of the farm which contains so small an amount of these elements as does butter or cream, and ho  other line of farming will maintain the  productive capacity of the farm so  successfully as will dairying.  There are no farm products that sell  at so nearly a uniform price from  month to month and from year to year  as do cream, butter and pork, and the  latter should always be one of the  products of the dairy farm. By engaging in dairying tlie farmer has a  home market on the farm for his hay  and grain, and, taking into consideration the value of the fertilizing elements contained in these products, he  !will get better returns from them than  he would if they were sold and removed from the farm.  With early cut clover hay, ensilage  and ground oats fed to good dairy  cows winter dairying can certainly be  made very profitable, and it would  doubtless increase the profits to purchase some cottonseed meal so as tp  make a more nearly balanced ration.  By feeding the skim milk to pigs, feeding spring and fall pigs and killing at  six or eight months of age, the pork  will increase the profits not a little.  any new batch you get. rut a cupful  into a quart of boiling hot water, stir  ands then use your nose, and if there is  any odor you can detect it.

We do  not believe, however, that the 400  pound dairy cow ls a very common  animal. She is a possibility, no doubt,  and the ambition of all farm dairymen  should be to bring the herd up to the  400 pound average. But the having of  these possibilities and the desiro to  have them are two distinctly separate  things. The dairy will pay on a much  smaller standard than thnt set by the  400 pound butter fat cow. The cow  that will produce 800 pounds of butter  fat annually is not a bad cow and  certainly stands above the average of  tho country.���������Nebraska Farmer.  Price Guernsey Ball.

One may deiay the doing of many  things without loss, but to put off  churning when the cream is ripe is not  in the list, writes an Ohio dairy woman  in American Agriculturist. The mistake must not be made of thinking  that butter is made by churning, It is  being made from the time the milk is  drawn until it is churned. No amount  of doctoring will cure a poor quality of  butter, It is of the utmost importance  that the churn be scrupulously clean  and sweet smelling before using. In  order to have lt so it must be washed  immediately after using, scalded and  set where it will be thoroughly aired  and dried. Rinsing in lime water occasionally is of benefit and will remove the musty odors which sometime linger around churns. The putting of cold water into the churn after  cleansing, as practised by some dairymen, is not to be recommended, as a  very unpleasant odor will be developed  in a day or two, especially if the weather is warm. After scalding the churn,  preparatory to using, it must be rinsed  in cold water or else a woody smell  will be imparted to the cream. All  wooden utensils used in dairy work  should be washed in tepid water first  and afterward scalded, rjnsed and  dried. The dishcloth must never bo  used in dairy work. If a cloth is ever  necessary it must be for that one use.  Woodenware can be cleansed more  rapidly, neatly and satisfactorily with  the aid of a brush; either rice straw  or bristle brush should be. kept for this  purpose alone.  We prefer to salt butter after it is  removed from the churn* rather "than  brine salt it. We salt at the rate of  one and one-half ounces salt per pound  and think it adds to the keeping qualities of the butter better than the ounce  to the pound method. Patrons find no  fault with pur butter so prepared. We  jvork lightly, just enough to ineorpo-  raTleThe sTir^venl^witUWt^iira-liiTfg-  and smearing it. We.press and touch  , it lightly and daintily, shape ijt-or cut  it into any desired form and pack it  ready for market. The sooner it is delivered the better.  The delicate aroma which all well  made butter has is very evanescent,  and when-made in rolls or packages  exposure to the air soon dissipates this  delicate flavor. Cold storage does not  help to retain this flavor. Packing in  jars so aa to exclude the air is the  only way to retain it. The market  value of butter depends upon its flavor  more than any other quality. Appearance should bo given duo prominence,  but flavor is paramount.  The dairyman must provide suitable  forage in abundance if he expects to  succeed in the profitable production of  milk. He must give as'much attention,  yes, more, to this phase of the food  supply question than to the grain or  concentrates that enter into the ration.  ���������C. H. Everett Before Wisconsin  Dairymen's Association.  Ensilage a Money Saver.  I fed forty pounds of ensilage harvested on three and three-quarter acres  to nine cows for eight months, and,  with the exception of one bundle of  corn stover per day each, that was all  the coarse fodder given, writes a Minnesota dairyman in American Cultivator. When the cows give eighteen to  twenty quarts of milk, they get eight  pounds of oil cake meal and eight  pounds of mixed feed. Ensilage Is the  great feature In reducing the cost ot  production.  DAINTY PIN TRAY.  Make It  of  Cardboard  or of Heavy  Water Color Paper.  From cardboard or heavy water color paper cut a circle a bit larger than  a tumbler top, hold it firmly over the  tumbler and press into the shape pf a  little plate by pinching every inch or  so bits of the cardboard that extend  over the tumbler edge. This gives a  little scallop effect. With water colors  or gilt paint tint the edge and scatter  forgetmenots, violets or stars over  the inside, and you have a dainty little  pin tray, writes a contributor to Good  Housekeeping.  A comb and brush tray can be made  in the same manner by pressing the  corners into shape over a box cover,  book or small meat platter of the desired size. A pretty little puff box can  be made by covering with the cardboard one of the pasteboard roils on  which the ribbons are wound, removing one end to be used as a cover. A  set of these prettily decorated makes  an acceptable gift for a friend who is  going to the seashore or mountains for  the summer, and as they can be packed  perfectly flat they are never left behind for lack of room.

After a long discussion the other day  by members of the Norm American  Fish and Game Protective Association  aa to whether moose under certain circumstances will attack human beings,  the verdict of those present was to.th-s*  effect that not only moose but the little red or Virginian deer as well will  under some conditions assault a man.  A story told in perfectly sober  language by a Roman Catholic priest  wm*  a revelation   to many   oi   inose  present The priest, Father Gaynor,  Avho ls a well-known sportsman and  naturalist, spoke from his own experience in the New Brunswick woods, near  Ludgate Lake, within ten miles of the  City of St. John, where, in company  with an old sea captain, he went with  John, his Indian guide, to watch the  experiment of "calling" a moose.  The season was not yet open for Willing big game, so it had been well understood that if by good luck a bull  should be "raised" no harm would be  done the animal unless the safety of  the party demanded it.  "We had first to dispose of the captain," said Father Gaynor. "We had  some difficulty in coaxing him into the  forks of an ancient pine, but we did  at length persuade him to lt. John  took his place on the top of a boulder  within reach of a decaying birch, whose  ragged, yellow bark shone in the moonlight, and I sat on the lower limb of  the captain's tree. Then,, drawing a  long- breath, the Indian sounded that  first wheedling blast. John was a master player on the birch conch, and suddenly a familiar sound broke the stillness. Again he put the barkhorn to  his lips. This time the call was soft,  the mere coo of a dove in comparison  with the previous  effort.  "The effect was instantaneous. Away  down on the lake bottom there was a  rush and commotion, and out of the  darkness came a series of hoarse  grunts and the shaking of antlers like  the rattling of ax handles in a bag.  Openly and with no attempt to follow  the shadows his lordship came out on  the plateau of rock.  "It was how up to John to lure him  to us. I expected to hear him give the  cow-call once more, but he did not���������  and herein lay the secret of our misfortunes. Instead of the coaxing call  of the cow some demon tempted him  to give out the hoarse cry of defiance  of a bull. Then, without waiting to  watch the effect, he began to tear the  curling bark from the birch tree by  ^Kich���������lTe^M-Eera���������sr^  all the noise be could, and punctuated  his gymnastics, with subdued grunts  from the horn.  "No self-respecting moose could refuse this gage of battle. With a snort  and roar he charged up the hill. Soon  the bull was charging in upon us, believing evidently that our clump of  trees concealed his enemy. As lie swirled in among ua I realized that a few  more feet of altitude would help my  case most considerably. I hastened  therefore to clamber beyond his reach,  which brought me close to the captain.  "Suddenly things began to happen.  Tha Indian at the first onset of the  moose had sought safety in the birch  tree, but the lower stubs being rotten, they gave way with him. The  rustling which his excited efforts to  climb made attracted the attention of  the bull, and he charged on John's tree  without further ado.  "I could witness the Indian's frantic  efforte to Bhin up to the heavier  branches where he could be beyond the  reach of hia adversary. He clungiio  his rifle, holding lt out from him as  he climbed. The split hoofs of tha  moose rattle viciously on the stones as  he projected himself in John's direction, and tht next moment he was beneath the birch,  "Then I saw an unusual sight, The  Indian went up the tree as If some  friendly hand had given him a hol������t,  and the moos* poased out Into the  open; He afterward assured me that  he found for a swift second a foothold  on the antlers and thus gave himself  ths necessary lift upward. My own Impression was that the moose did the  llftfng -and that John only had tho  luck to travel ln the right direction.  The bull was not yot done with him,  however. Circling, he earne back to  the charge, bellowing forth his peculiar  battle grunt  "Again the unusual happened. I had  seen on the famous mooso ground,  known aa tho Popple Knoll In Canon,  a herd of moose feeding in early winter, and I had watched them while the  bulls reached up and with their forefeet drow down the birch sapling within reach of the young cowh nnd -straddled the trees to keep them down. But  I had no Idea the angry bull would  adopt the samo tactics to get at an  enemy.  "That Is Just what he tried to do,  nevertheless, Standing on his hind  feet, his great head, with Its long,  , home-like muscle pointing upward, h������  pllod hlH forefuet In the attempt to  reach John.

Another customer who was waiting;  smiled when the woman left at her aj>-  parent mistake. "She meant she couldi  not see," he observed.  "No," rejoined the optician; "sba  meant Just what she said. Opera  glasses are an aid to hearing as well  as to sight. You can prove it any time  you are seated well toward the rear ha  a theater by training the glasses on a  singer. As long as you keep the singer  under scrutiny witb the glasses you  will be able to follow the words of the  song with ease. Drop the glasses and  you will notice a difference. It will  require more or less of a strain to  catch the enunciation distinctly.  "By tbe use of opera glasses a theater patron is enabled to note distinctly every movement of a singer's lips,  and the unconscious 'lip reading' greatly aids the sense of hearing. If you  ever attend a public meeting where It  is impossible to get close to the speakers provide yourself with opera glasses,  and you will be surprised how greatly  they will aid you in hearing."

One aolonin  faced man told the following.  "I had two tkhoolniates," he began.  "One of them was aspiriuir to be a lawyer and the other hnd aspirations for s.  high place in the medical profession. The  colleKi* we atttJulod wui one at which  the discipline waa severe and tho requirements for graduation were exactlnjr. Well,  those two boys managed to worry along  until the day of the final examination  came. Tho young law student had per*  feeted himself in his studies and wna  likely tJ pass with high honors. The  medical student, however* was in a far  less enviable plight. He found that the  examination would be for the most part  npon tlie anatomy of the leg, and this  was the one branch of the course be bad  neglected. He confided in his roommate  and wailed out his sorrows.  '"If I only had a leg to dissect,' enld  he, 'I would pass that examination at the  head of my class.'  "It was here that his roommate rose  sublimely to the occasion. He rolled up  his trousers and insisted that his friend  amputate his leg at the knee. His medical friend demurred, but the law student  insisted, and finally the amputation was  performed and the medical student captured his diploma.   .  "Years afterward this same doctor wna  sitting iu on office surrounded by all the  evidence of a prosperous practice. The  door opened and in came his old room-  mato at college. The greeting was, of  course, affecting, and thon the doctor in*  quired bow the lawyer was getting on in  the world. The lawyer said he had been  practicing several years iu the petty affair, of the law and would rise to distinction If he could secure n good case.  'I want a murder case,' sold he; 'one  that will attract special attention and in-  tolve some well known citizen.'  "The doctor excused himself and, picking up a heavy poker, left the room. He  proceeded down stairs and killed hia  landlady, resorting fo all the atrocities  that ingenuity could devise to make hia  crime one that would create a sensation.  He was successful. The papers teemed  with the awful details of the deed and  the tragic events of the trial. His friend,  the one legged lawyer, defended him,  and he was cleared. Both of these men  occupy leading places in their professions today. If you don't believe this  story, you can come up to my room and  I will show you a picture of the school  these two friends of mine Attended."  WILLARD BLOCK,     Cumberland,  lelllBflr Yonr Diamond*.  People who buy diamonds are apt to  answer reflections upon their extravagance with the remark that diamonds are  a good investment and that they cun always get their money bnck on them.  This is plausible and partly true, but not  entirely. The ring itself, though the design may be elaborate, as it sometimes la  ia men's rings, and of the finest nud most  artistic of workniuuiship, will seldom bring  more than the worth of the gold unless  sold to an individual, and styles of setting  change cuough to mako old fashions of  little value.  A woman ln reduced circumstances recently sold a ring which cost at the time  ot its purchase $150 for $40. It is a cluster ring, with nine small diamonds surrounding a larger one. The ring was appraised at a jeweler's, who sot the present value upon it. It is a pretty ring,  with white stones and brilliant, but it i.  not worth a third of what it was forty  years ago, when it came into the possession If its original owner. Deillers Iu  stones say also that diamonds lose in  weight perceptibly with wear, and foil  that reason become less valuable.  Got What He De������erre_.  MYou know Throggins? Smooth fellow.

MSddktoa's Lorer/* "A Forbktico Marrf-  a-je," *' Daisy Brooks," Et<_* Etc  Herbert's face flushed hotly; that  he could give her pleasure, that ha  could win from those glorious dark  eyes one admiring glance, made his  heart beat and his pulses thrill.  Ho would sing her a love song,  and each passionate word should  vibrate with the love that filled hia  heart. .  And in this he was exceedingly  clever, for with a carefully chosen  love-song passionate appeals from a  loving heart can be breathed tender  and low which bashful lip3 could  never otherwise find courage to utter.  And more than one skillful maiden  has gained a husband through the influence of a sweet and tender love-  song.  Herbert Renwick sat down at the  piano, ran his firm, white fingers  over the keys, playing his own accompaniment, while his face paled  with emotion as his fine barytone  voice broke into the sweet refrain;  "Oh, heart    that no pleadings    can  move,  "   I'd give up my hope of the skies  But for a smile from those lips, love.  Or but for one glance from thine  eyes.  '"Oh, would of this world    I    were  king,  Surrounded by beauty and pride;  My heart at thy feet would I fling,  Crying,  'pray be my queen���������be my  bride.'  "I might seek that heart forever,  I might seek and seek in vain;  Yet to win one sigh so tender.  I'd pay with a life-time of pain,"  As the     sweet    refrain died away  from his lips Herbert Eenwick's face  flushed and then grew deadly pale as  -he-hurriedly-arose-and-stood_leaning,  over the piano by Helena's side.  He took the pretty little white  hand in his own that was idly turning over a book of music, and his  proud, passionate eyes eagerly scanned the girl's face to find an answer  to his song.  But thero was no light of lovo in  the dark, velvety eyes raised to his.  Was it possible she did not understand him?  "Come out on the balcony, Helena," he whispered, "I can not speak  to you hero. You must come; I  have something to say to you."  Helena started back. She knew  what was coming; yot she seemed  quite incapablo of refusing to go  with him, and Fredorick Castleton,  watching them Intently from tho  other end of# the room, saw them  pass out on t'o tho roso-embowered  balcony together.  "Sbo does not love him, sho lovca  mo," thought Frederick, triumphantly. "If ho declares bis love, tho answer my darling will givo him will  be 'No,' " ho mused, confidently.  A half hour rolled by beforo they  returned to the parlor.  CHAPTER XIII.  Both Vivian and Frederick glanced  up quickly as thoy ro-ontered the parlor.  One glance at Herbert Ren wick's  palo, despairing faco, and ho know  tho truth���������Holona bad refusod him.  And eoon after Herbert took, hia  leave.  In vain Fredorick attempted to  gain an opportunity of exchanging a  few words in private with Holona,  Vivian was dotormlriod that he  should havo no such opportunity if  sbo could prevent it.  If she could only koop the lovors  apart until the morrow all would bo  well, und she redoubled hor efforts to  engross Frederick's attention.  At last ho bocamo annoyed. He Raid  to himself that she must ho trying  to vox him, and whon ho 4roao to  tako his departure fate at that moment bofriendod him���������Vivian was  hastily summoned from tho room.  I Ior faco paled and sho caught her  broath quickly.

Kxcuslng himself hastily and before  Vivian hud time to reply, ho followed Helena out Into tho corridor, and  in thnt instant Vivian realized that  late I .ul l,.*.i"������;d her ilariii^ Ml.emc.  "'Jive mo just ono minutn, Helena,"  rivduii* k pleaded, "I am U!,..: au impatient hchool-boy, Helena; I can net  wait until to-morrow to learn my  fate. Vou sent Herbert Honwlek  from you," ho went oa rapidly. "I  rend his dismissal in hi* face, poor  fellow.   Way X. oh. Helena I dare   I  nope tnac it was because ybu lovea  me that you sent him away?"  The pink of Helena's dimpled  checks deepened to a vivid scarlet,  and she would have broken from her  impatient lover's clasp, but he caught  her in his arms and held her against  his throbbing heart.  "Answer my two questions with  but one word and I will let you  go," cried Frederick, "Was it because you loved me, Helena, and  were to give yourself to me on the  morrow that you sent him away?"  He bends his handsome head to  catch the low-breathed word that  fell from her tremulous rosebud lips,  and Vivian appeared upon the scene  fairly livid with baffled rage just in  time to hear Helena murmur a timid  "Yes."  A few moments later the joyous  young lover was walking with a  swift, springy step through one of  the parks near, the heart of the city.  He would not turn hia steps toward home, it wa's much pleasanter  walking through the bright silvery  moonlight with the cool winds playing upon his flushed, earnest, hopeful faco, and to give himself up t'o  his thoughts of Helena.  Hark! was it the night wind that  rustled the green leaves of tho trees?  Was it moonlight so wondrously  flashing?  Frederick stopped short and glanc  ed hastily around, and as he did so,  ho observed the dark figure of a man  who was leaning against one of the  trees watching him intently in the  bright moonlight. There was a  bright gleam of a revolver followed  by a cry that sounded scarcely human, a loud report, and the mysterious stranger's bullet came within an  ace of giving Frederick Castleton a  mortal wound.,  ���������He-had���������-scarcely���������time���������to-spuing,  backward a step or two, when as the  smoke cleared away from the weapon, he observed the stranger throw  up his hands and fall heavily to the  ground.  In an instant he was bending over  him, but the stranger waved him  back.  "Go away!" he moaned, with a  wail of bitterness in his. voice,  "leave me to my fate; I want to die.  Don't call for help," he added, as  Frederick glanced hastily around for  assistance.  And as those words fell from his  lips, ho sunk back unconscious.  "Poor fellow!" mused Frederick,  pityingly, as ho bent over the white,  handsome, dissipated face upturned  to tho moonlight. IIo waa so happy himself on this particular night,  that ho had quito forgotton there  wero such things as heartaches and  misery in tho world.  A sudden impulso occurred to him  to summon assistance and havo tho  young man convoyed to his own  apartments. And ho acted upon tho  thought without dolay.  "It watt but a flesh wound," tho  doctor said who had promptly exam-  inod and drossod it, and tho young  stranger was In no immediato danger unless inflammation sot in. "Ho  seems to havo boon loading a lifo  of dissipation, and indulged tn opiates for somo time pant, concluded  tho doctor.  Ah, if Frederick Castloton but know  who it was whom ho bofriondod, and  how strangely and tragically their  lives woro to erose each other, tho  chances aro���������tender of heart though  ho was���������-ho might have granted tho  mysterious stranger's wild, incoherent prayer and loft him thero in tho  groen park with his life-blood staining tlio tender grass to dio, unknown  and uncarod for!  In his broast-pockot tboy found tho  ivory portrait of a slcndor young  girl, but tho face bad boon rudely  stumped by a boot-heol bo/ond recognition, and beneath tho portrait woro  tho letters, painted in crimson, as  though writton with tho blood of a  human heart: "My falso lost lovo."  And besides tho portrait a pocket  contained an empty envelope dlrect-  od in a flowing, girlish hand that  looked puzzlingly familiar Co Frederick, to  "Mr. Mark Forrnstor, artist, No,  ��������� Broadway," and a card bearing  tha name und address of "Miue  Klennnr Kirkwood ���������*-���������- Avonuo, Now  York."  "i'rubuUy a (rivtid ur u. *������rtt;t-  hcart," said Fredorick, Jotting down  Miss Kirkwood'������ address;*"it will do  no harm to advlso his frionds of this  sad alTatr, if    tho poor fellow   hoe  .... >���������  u-i ���������  And an hour later, a lengthy telegram, which was to not tho ball of  mlsfortuno rolling, was dollvcrod  into Miss Klrkwood's hands.  It was midnight whon Mark For-  restor opened his oyes to consciouo-  neau, and eaw a young and handsome  falr-halrod man fitting beside bis  COUCh. lie open* hln rye* w|d������, and  ���������tares at him by no means kindly,  and bU brows darken,  "Why didn't you let me die?" be  exclaimed, witb Interne bitterness.  Frederick Castleton laugbsd good-  homnredlv-  "You'seein very ungrateful upon  finding yourself so well cared for, my  friend," he said, relighting a fresh  Havana and puffing away vigorously; "what tempted you to shake off  this mortal coil, and land���������the Lord  knows where?" he asked, curiously.  "I wanted to die because life is not  worth the living," groaned Mark  Forrester.  "Are you married? have you a wife  and little children?" asked Frederick,  remembering the portrait in his  breastpocket.  "A wife! No!" cried Forrester,  with a moan of pain. "I detest all  women for the sake of one who was  false to me; they are all false firebrands luring men by their beauty to  ruin and death, and trampling the  love of true hearts under their dainty  feet!"  Frederick Castleton flushed hotly.  "Do not judgo all so harshly for  the sake of what you have suffered at  the hands of one," he says, gravely  and with dignity.  The white face lying against the  pillow grew a shade paler, and the  dazed eyes studied his face intently.  "Heaven grant that you may never  bo duped by a fair, fickle girl," he  murmurs hoarsely. "Your faith has  never been shaken���������I hope it never  will be."  "There is no danger!" exclaimed  Frederick, a joyous smile breaking  over his bonny face. "A young girl  has made me the happiot man the  earth holds by giving me the promise this very evening that she  would be my bride, Heaven bless  her!"  Mark Forrester looked wistfully at  the smiling face, and his lips quivered With emotion.  "Think what a blow it would be  to you to lose your love," he said,  huskily. "If she -were false to you,  and fled from your ?ove���������then, ah,  then you would know what I am  suffering now���������you would realize my  pain; and if you had the courage to  end your suffering as I tried to end  mine, you would curse the man who  struck the fatal bullet from your  heart!"  How sorry Frederick felt for him  as he c watched the white, restless  face, with the lines of dissipation  that should never have been there!  How strange it was that one should  have tasted the sweets of love's enchanting cup of joy, while the other  had drained to the dregs its bitterness.  "Are you an artist? You have the  broad brow of a genius," said Frederick,  hoping  to  divert  the    other's  -thoughts���������from���������bis-great���������woe���������   "I was an artist once," was the  bitter reply; "I am nothing now. J  have no desire for'fame. I have  painted out my ideal dreams that I  once eagerly put upon canvas thirsting for the world's praise. What is  the cold praise of the empty world  to a heart thirsting for a'lovo that  is denied it? I destroyed my paintings and burned my brushes, I lived  from day to day with but one hope,  and that was to find my false love  and tako vengeance upon her for  wrecking my life1."  "If I could but get my beautiful  Helena to talk to this poor unfortunate, sho might win him from this  vow of vengeance against his false  lovo," mused his host.  A brilliant idea occurred to Fred-  erlck. ' Ho would engage him to go  to Cameron Hall and paint,.Helena's  portrait, and he would pay him his  own price for tho work if it was  only faithful copy of his darling's  lovely dimpled face.  With such a beautiful subjoct, a  truo artist must needs enter heart  and soul into his work, and it would  revive his flagging love for the art  ho onco adored.  How littlo wo think when we plan  for tho future, that oftlmes the realization of those vory plans will pierce  our hearts keener than a sword's,  point, and causo us tho most poignant griof a human heart can know.  And while Frodorlck sat there,  complacently planning a meeting bo-  twocu Mark Forrester tho artist and  his lovely Holona, in her own bluo  and gold boudoir at Cameron Hall,  Holona was pacing up and down  murmuring faintly:  "I am to be Frodcrlcjf(t bride.

"I am t'o bo Frodorick'e bride!"  Holona murmured, pressing hor hands  tightly ovor her heart; and something vory llko a guilty thrill of terror crept over her as sho remembered  how near sho had onco beon to boing  a bride.  "I was never suited to poor  Mark," sho sighed, glancing at tho  gloriously beautiful faco tho mirror  reflected. "I never Was intended for  n lifo such as I would havo had to  lead as his wlfo. It was not lovo  which piuiupic-J uio to au*p4 JJaik,"  she mused, "for I repented of it  quite as eoon ae the words wero uttered.

And she prayed as she had, never  prayed before, that Frederick might  never find out her terrible sin.  She had made what reparation she  could���������as far as money went ��������� concerning, Gilbert Cameron's wealth ���������  for had she not heroically burned the  will that had left every dollar of his  money to her?���������burned it that his  wealth might go to the rightful  heirs, Vivian and his nephew! Still,  the sin remained ��������� no atonement  could wash that out*.  She knew that she should have sent  for Vivian and Frederick, placed the  flashing diamonds and gleaming  pearls Squire Cameron had lavished  upon her, in their hands, knelt at  their feet,  crying out:  "Pity me, even though you spurn  me and send me from you an outcast into the bitter world; yet I  must confess my sin���������I am not  Squire Cameron's child���������I am only a  poor, dependent sewing-girl who  found by chance the secret of Ollie  Cameron's fate. Gold, glittering jewels tempted me. I took the poor dead  Ollie's place and destroyed the  proofs. I will go back to the old life  again, for the great fear that I  should meet someone from the dark  past, who might know me and denounce me, has been a fear greater  than I can bear. The torture has  driven me mad! I give you back your  love, Frederick, and the ring*you  gave me as a token of it. You, who  are so far above me, could never lovo  the poor sewing-girl who has been  guilty of such a wicked deception."  Helena pictured to herself, as she  lay there, how he would turn from  her in horror and dismay���������he who  was the very soul of honor.  "I could never do it!" she cries,  starting up in reckless despair and  putting her dark, curly hair back  from her flushed} tear-stained face;  "I will marry my love and be happy.  He will never know. I will plead  with Frederick i-#ght and day to take,  me far away���������so far that the great  fear of meeting some one who will  know me will die out of my heart.  Yet, who would recognize in me Hel-  -ena���������Heat-hclifff-t-he-poor���������little���������sewing-girl, whose face was pinched  with privation, want, and all the ills  poverty is heir to?"  Again those glorious dark eyes  scanned the lovely face the mirror reflected with breathless anxiety. Then  sho breathed freer.  "No one would ever know mo,"  she murmured; "I ain greatly changed."  The next afternoon, while on his  way to Cameron Hall, Miss ICirk-  wood's answering telegram was  placed in Frederick's hands:  "Kindly detain Mr. Forrester until his sister and I arrive."  In tho days that followed, Helena  scorned so completely changod Frederick looked upon her in tlie greatest  wonder and pleased surprise.  The strange, brooding shadows bad  flod from her dark oyes; sho was gay  ���������recklessly gay, as a buoyant,  romping school-girl,  Frederick smiled delightedly at tho  change lovo had made. If sho was  charming and lovable before, in hor  timid, girlish bashfulness, sho was  bowitchlngly charming and irresistible now.  How littlo ho dreamed that it was  all duo to one cause;��������� she had  thrown off tho dread four that haunted her���������sho hud dared to bo happy  Jjand risk all consequences.  '^Onco Frederick had attempted to  irtduco hor to,flit to a young artist  for hor portrait.  "Ho is a stranger in Baltimore,  dear," ho said; "but ho has oxcollont  rocommondntfons from Now York  parties as an artist of extraordinary  ability. You will suroly sit to him  for your portrait, for my sako,  dear?"  Ho novor forgot, nor could he understand, tho sharp cry of horror  that roso to Helena's lips.  "My portrait!" she cried, in a  voico so changed by terror that it  sounded scarcoly human, "1���������I ���������  should dio if you brought an artist  hero. I���������-I���������-would not livo through  tho ordeall"  A hoarty laugh broko from Frodorlck, the idea wub so vory ludicrous.  "I can not understand you, darling," ho declared, laughingly. "I  havo hoard and read of young girls  having aversion to crimson-blood  roses, to rod-plmwiged birds, to at*  fomfnato dandles and so on; but I  havo novor heard of a young and be-  wiichingly lovoly girl refusing, in  ouch terror, to allow bor lovoly fca-  ��������� nreq to hn transferred to canvas.  You surprise mo, Helena."  "Dont talk about tt auy marc,  Fredorick," Bho murmurod, clasping  two ice-fold hands on his arm,  "I had hoped to interest you, dear,  by telling you this poor fallow's hie-  iu*,," U  v.vi.t      v.':,     tb'^Mlowly  "Ho Is quito a woman-hater. It is  really only out of compliment to mo  that bo has coinonted to undcrtako  it at all. I befriended him onco, and  ���������Why, are you ill, Holona?" ho crlod  in wonder. "All the beautiful color  has fadfd from jour furn, and your  eyes have in them the look of a hunt-  ad fawn; even yonr !iunrts am burning. You must be 111," ht cried,  anxiously. "Don't worry yourself  about the portruit; of course your  will io to be my law. I can not  coinolaln, ynujgiow, dear, for am J  not "to have "lhe sweet original ior  my own very soon now? Look up  into my eyes and smile again. I  will tell you the artist's story somo  other time."  By a great effort Helena threw ofl  all the deadly fear that for on������ moment hnd swept like a deluge over  her fluttering heart.  How silly she was, she told herself, to give way to sudden terror  like that! Mark was not the only  artist in tho world. Still, she would  never sit for a portrait���������never while  the sun shone! She had a deadly  terror of it, nothing could change  that���������just such a brooding horror  as a deserted wife feels lest the same  fato may reach her own daughters  when they grow up and marry, and  a constant dread, if sho remarries,  lest the next one may follow suit on  the least provocation���������that was tho  haunting skeleton in her closet which  the world knew not of; but in Frederick's presence she would forget it  all, and be happy; she would enjoy  his tender love, as the shrinking  flower enjoys tho sweet, invigorating sunshine.  "I have not been idle, darling,"  exclaimed Frederick, fondly, as, arm  in arm, they paced the flower-bordered terrace a moment before he  took his leave. "I have bought a  boautiful house for my beautiful  bride," he exclaimed, enthusiastically, "and have had it furnished with  every luxury taste could suggest and  money procure. It is upon one of  the most fashionable avenues in  Washington, where my Helena will  shine as the most beautiful of beautiful brides; and I have purchased  that homo and its adornings as my  bridal gift to you, dear," ho said,  bending over her tenderly.  "You are so good to me, Frederick!" cried Helena, lifting two tear-  gemmed eyes to his handsome face,  "and the one prayer of my life will  be"���������and her voice fluttered tremulously���������"I hope you will.never lovo  me less than you do now; and that  no shadow will ever come between  us."  He laughed lightly at her words  then; but the time came when theso  words sounded like a prophecy.  The days flew, by on golden wings,  as the days of lovers' wooing generally do. It was the day before Helena's wedding, and the sun shone,  and the birds sung in the trees outside of her window"as though no  tragedy were to be enacted ere the  day waned-ir-as though no girlish  heart were to be broken and a young  life cruelly blasted.  ������������������"-Ahy���������-trie���������how-happy���������I~am!���������Tomorrow is to be my wedding day,"  she murmured, standing before the  mirror, and knotting a crimson sash  about her slender waist, and twining a spray of geranium���������Frederick's favorite flower���������in her dark  brown, glossy curls.  Sho walked slowly down the corridor and out into tlie rose garden.  Helena liked to gather the roses  best whon thoy were spangled with  diamonds of dew, glistening in tho  sunlight.   .  She was an early riser. No one  was yet astir at the Hall, and she  walked briskly along with her sun  hat over her white nrm. The morning  air and golden sunshine kissed her  cheek's into twin-blown roses as sho  walked about amid tho bods of brilliant blooms,  "My happiness will be Uko this  flower," she murmured, plucking a  fragrant white rose���������"pure and  sweet; but I trust it will be moro  lasting than this flower, so fragllo  and lovely!"  A Blight noise directly behind hor  startled hor, nnd, glancing hnstlly  around, sho saw a gentleman besido  tho fenco, with both of his hands  leaning lightly upon tho railing.

Robb, who became famous for his  work in running down the postal  grafters a couple of years ago, began  the practice of law in a small village  in Vermont. He knew all the people  of the town, as well as most of the  farmers in the surrounding country.  "One day," said Mr. Robb, "a tall,  lank Yankee, a veritable David Har-  um, came into my office. It seems  that, he had got into trouble as a result of trading a cow. He had succeeded in palming off on an unsuspecting neighbor an uncertain looking animal which proved to be stone  blind.
