Bad Diet  Sometimes n Canse of Dad  HaJ������its in After Life.  "Thoro is a causo for the drink habit  which even good Christian parents' do  not undorstsiid." says a writer in What  to Eat. "They cannot realize why  their children, with beautiful surroundings and daily Christian influences  -sometime;.! go far astray, becoming sadly immoral ami in many instances  drunkard!-!. When th?y, as well as  many of the physicians, shall have exhausted all oilier efforts to locate tho  cause of the trouble let them look to  the stomach���������the poor, abused stomach���������and they will in nil probability  find Iho source of the evil. From infancy many of tho little ones are {,'iv-  eu food beyond the capacity of their  digestive organs. As soon us several  teeth have appeared meats are frequently a part of the bill of fare.  These, as well as the other articles of  food, are necessarily swallowed without proper mastication. I'epper, mustard* \V6r������'%tershire sauce, vinegar  end highly seasoned salads also Iind  their way int. these young and tender  stomachs until, as the result of such  a diot, fermentation sets in and a little distillery is created In these youthful temples. Undor such condition*  a chilli becomes irritable, quick tem-  perc-.l. untruthful and it would be sur-  pri:V.nr? if It grew up to noble man-  bund."  7      _____  GIRLS WHO~FLIRT.  '     OLD BAVARIAN TOWNS.  Many of the Smaller Ones Are Mere-,  ly WUlo'l Farm Villages.  In old Bavarian districts many of the  smaller towns are merely walled farm  villages..  Those settlements of agriculturists reproduce the ancient laager for  all.    Each is built in the form of a  parallelogram, the shorter sides having each a gateway, with double gates,  over which rise central square watch-  towers capped with conical red roofs.  ��������� A narrow road or street runs from gate  to gate, with old half timber houses  set back close to the Inclosing wall.  The ground floor ol* these houses affords stabling  fyr caftkv'nud   from  . these stables the cows are driven out  through the town gates in the morning and brought in at night.   Townships like this are merely clusters of  'houses H:!m->t!'!v c-noorod with the  farm Ian Is 1'i.ar iie beyond their,gates.  The pr1:' -innlr.7.   wbr'.la-r peasant proprietors or :*.'.;otn.ient  leaseholders, go  ; In and out to ',hoi: work.  J    ln eastern Bavaria, toward lh<? Dan-  ! ube, where the better'class farms are  ' to  be seen,  one  finds  farmhouses of  '. wood, a great shingled roof covering���������  '.as in Holland���������not only the large llv-  l ing apartmunt, with  many bedrooms,  but also  the stables  for the  horses  'and cattle.    On such farms much of  [ the farm work is done by gir'.s. who  usually   wear  short   potticoats.   tight  Lodices and kerchiefs on their, heads.  Most of the men are either in the army  or working at trades.  Tbe Troubles Tbey Are Sare to Bring  Upon  Themselves.  Girls should bear iu mind tho fact  that if they wish to win the respect  of men they must behave in a modest,  dignified manner. Why should they  respect her if she lias no self respect?  They will seek her soelaty, and she will  appear to have lots of attention, but  behind lier back they will laugh at her.  Men can tell at onco the girl whom  they can treat in an oiThand way: they  are not very particular whon with her  as to their language or conversation.  says the Philadelphia-Bulletin.. They  are equally quick to recognize the girl  whom tliey know will allow no freedom; they treat her with a chivalrous  respect such as they never show the  other girls.  When it comes to choosing a wife  _men do not often logic for her among  the girls whom, they have flirted with.  They want a girl whose bloom has not  been rubbed off by constant -llirtationa  with other men. they want a girl who  is fresh and sM-eo:, and they do no1  want to fee.} that sho has been just a*  sweet to numerous other men as she is  to them.  You needn't be cold.,nnd stand off in  .your manner to men. Be as cordial and  sweet as yon can���������indifference never  makes friends���������but don't. I pray you,  spoil your girlish.charm, by letting any  man feel Unit lie can treat you with the  slightest familiarity.

SMOKING A-CIGAR.  Some   Things   Tbnt   Every   User   ol  Tobacco Does  Not Know.  "It's really remarkable, considering  the 12,000.000.000 cigars smoked in the  United States every year, how few  men really know how to smoke," said  a prominent tobacco dealer. "There Is  one mistake in particular that even experienced smokers sometimes make-  that is in not keeping the tobacco burning properly.  "About 90 per cent, I should say, of  all the cigars sold are better on the  outside than the inside. This isn't  wholly to deceive the prospective buyer. It requires a good quality of leaf  to shape the outside of a cigar, while  the filler may be more readily composed  of inferior tobacco. The smoker who  ���������permits-.his:._.cigar^-to__buru- inside the_  wrapper loses the best part of it. Practically any, cigar is rank when smoked  through the center. Tho aroma is lost  and the smoke is bitter and acrid.  "Puffing on a cigar that is not burn-  lng'properly only increases the difliculty. The smoker gets more of the smoke  of the inside leaves, and t>:e whole cigar becomes hot from the effects of the  Increased combustion in the center of  It. The proper thins���������the only thing���������  to do undor the circumstances is to  light the cigar again, taking.care^that  wrapper and all are Included in* the  lighting. If this plan wore followed a  good many smokors wouldn't change  thoir brand of cigars so often."  Aa Opportunity   Given to Allow  the  Skin to  Breathe.  It must be remembered that we rarely if ever give our skin the opportunity  to breathe properly. Our perverted  condition in regard to heavy, unventi-  lated and very often restricted clothing  has given us a skin that is constantly  moist, clammy and cold to the touch,  or. else.-It is dry and dead and can be  rubied off by tha hand with little effort. Restricted clothing not only damages the lungs nnd internal vital organs of the body, but causes the circulation to the skin to becomo stagnant  and poor. A great many ills that we  do not understand are caused by the  .unhygienic practice of smothering the  skin.  Give your body an air bath! Reanimate your skini This is a splendid  time to begin tlie habit of doing so,  since a "cold" need not be feared at  this time, of the year, and you will  strengthen the skin against the more  severe season. Exposure and drafts  against the body is a superstition more  or less. The writer has often stood before a coid draft taking an air bath in  winter, and the practice has yielded a  clay's tonic to the body that cannot bo  explained, but must be tried upon one's  own person to be. understood and appreciated.  Open your windows wide and exercise until th������t pores have become awakened: Then let'the cool, fresh' morning  air play upon your body, lying down if  you desire. It will be a treat that you  will never want to miss again. It acts  as a delightful tonic to the nerves.  There is no better medicine for weak,  nervous peoplo than the air bath. The  very blood tingles with the unaccustomed freedom of tlie body and its contact with tho energizing air. -  Looming; Mirages.  In what are called "lpoininji: mirages" distant objects show, nn apparent extravagant increase ln height  without alteration in breadth. Distant  pinnacles of ico are thus magnified  Into Immense towers or tall, Jagged  mountains, and a ship thus reflected  from fur out at sea may appear to be  twelve or fifteen times as tall as lt Is  .long. Rocks and trees are also shown  In abnormal shapes and positions, while  Houses, animal and human beings appear In like exaggerated shapes. Beforo the sandy plains of our southwestern states and territories wero  converted into vordant Holds by the  ingonulty nnd tireless energy of man  tnlrngos woro vory common In thoso regions, the Indians regarding the pho  n-uncnon as being the work of evil  spirits. ���������'   v>n������n||MiiM.

Every farmer li:.c  noted thc fact that an exceedingly  large number oj fields are diflicult to  plow, cultivate and har\e;st because  of the irregular sloughs and wet  spots of various si:'.e.i which can. ot  bo tiilc-d. Theso wot places cannot  be crossed at many times during the  year with a plow or cultivator. They  are not only unproductive, but arc  also a source of great annoyance and  expense. Thoir presence in tlie licld  oi'ton makes short rows aad badly  shaped lands necessary. As a result  a great deal of time and money is  lost in operating plows, cu'.tiviucrs  arid harvesters.  Abundant testimony is at h. nd to  prove that farmers have succor sfully  tiled wet places similar to ihoze. mentioned and have thus brought all  the land in thoir fields under the  plow. SI any of those wot spots were  regular ponds during rainy noaFo/.s,  but through intelligent draina^u thoy  have boon converted into an a'.niost  ideal state for cultivation. , Tho  diminished expense in tho management of the farms after this improvement hns bicn made is an i,n-  portant factor in iniToai.-ing the  not returns from tlie land. Evory  landowner who has boon compelled  in y������ars past to cultivate bro!-:cn up  fields realizes that th3 total ai nuul  loss for the state is a very considerable sum.  There arc many fields whieh aro  seamed with tortuous, open ditches  through which, surface water flows at  certain .seasons of the yoar. , Those  ditches are' frcriiuntly of such width  and depth that thoy can be crossed  by a team with difliculty, if at all.  Serious inconvenience in cultivation  often * results from the presonco or'  these, open waterways, and it is a  costly mistake that landowners do  not moro generally lay tile' ak-ng  these ditches and plow thom shut.  When this improvement,-is made, the  work of tillage is greatly facilitated  and an increased acreage is msde  available for crop production.  Considerable care, however, needs  to be exercised in closing these open  ditches, for in not a few cases' tho  surface water will 'tend to ruch dowa  the old channel in time 01 heavy  rainfall and wash out the dirt and  ~t-ilcr���������A���������largo-itumber���������of-ditchesJiavo.  been tiled and filled during thc past  few years, and in every case whon  properly dono the work has n?v<jr  proved other than perfectly satisfactory and a profitable investment.

A  Question of Per<om-l  Appearance.  Tho problem beforo mc was this: If  a girl was all legs and arms at tho  age of IM���������and ono can't remember  much of anything else-about her appearance���������what will she look like on  her nineteenth birthday? At lirst  glanco it seemed to be difficult of solution, 'and after pondering on it  during many thousands of miles of  travel on the sea I was no nearer to  the answer except as I was nearer to  The girl. <-  It is true that L,had a great bundle  of niy father's" letters to assist me.  They were waiting for me at Lourcnco  Marques, when by the tardy blessing  of heaven'I succeeded in getting out oi  , the Transvaal, where I had spent two  , years that will not bear thinking about.  Previous to that experience I had studied mineralogy and chemistry in Ger-  'niany, whence, upon an offer that seemed flattering, I had gone to President  Kruger's realm just in time tb get into  . all kinds of trouble.    Suffice It to say  ' that I never did a day's work for the  mining company in whose service I  went there; that, thanks to the long  range of modern weapons, I was quito  badly wounded at a distance of nearly  a mile from a foolish little riot" with  which I had no connection, and that I  " lay  many months in prison charged  iwith an offense the nature of which  has not yet been disclosed,to me.  Enough of such recollections. This  Etory begins with my father's letters.  Those which I found at Lourenco Marques were written after his anxiety in  regard to me had been relieved. I-Ie  knew that I was coming, home, that 1  was none the worse for my-wound and  that niy desire to roam bad probably  Jbieen-auEbadJjy_m^  ; wrote of the future, and" very cheerily.  * It-appeared that all things had goue  ".surprisingly well with him. He had  never been poor. He was now rich/as  he expressed it, "really beyond ray desires���������somewhere between my own and  yours, perhaps���������but you will not need  to worry much, my boy." A fine old  father he always was. I could not  have chosen a better. It smote upon  my heart that I was all to bim and yet  bad left him so much alone.  '., However, there was Sibyl; no kin of  flh^tqjjo sure, but very tenderly re-  garde-Vtta daughter of his friend, and  quite helpless In tbe world except for  bim.  "Sibyl has developed beyond anything that you would believe," he wrote  iu one of those letters. "She Is a very  brilliant young woman; the promise of  lier girlhood is more than fulfilled."  Now, to be hottst, the promise of  Sibyl's girlhood, as I remembered it,  was not much. She lived ut our house  after her sixth year, but I novor paid  any particular attention to hor, except  to tease her, lu the omlablo effort to  make hor cry. It was one of Sibyl's  peculiarities that slio never would cry  In any person's presence. Even wheu  nn infant, us I had been told, she would  hido her tears under a pillow, at the  groat risk of smothering. At a later  period sho would shut herself up In tho  dark to indulgo hor grief, and after  some of my experiments with her  youthful feelings it had been necessary  to open nil the clothes closets in tlio  houso and even to explore the cellar  In search of hor. Experimenting, by  the way, was always my forte. As a  boy I spoiled many clocks by taking  them apart, aud doubtless the same  pplrlt of research ofton prompted mo  In my attacks upon tho nervous systems of my fellow creatures,  I was away at school duiing the  major part of my youth and so saw  less of Sibyl than would have beeu natural, considering that fiho dwelt under  my father's roof, My most distinct  recollection of her was as who used to  sit nt tho table, rigid, embarrassed,  hiding her long arms and bug hands  under tho cloth; her hair brushed  ���������tralght bnck from a forehead so thin  that It shono upon tho curves llko a  porcelain doorknob. The ������omposlto of  lliv^v; I������������i������_.,.i'.vi-.j i;;ay ha-.' ?hce<l her  Sn my mind nt nbont the npfo of VI.  My father mentioned In a letter which  I found nt Gibraltar that Sibyl would  be 10 on Juno 10, quite probably tho  date of my arrival In Chicago.  Aila iv-������am-, tJ.Iii iMtU:vsi-nt I teched  back through the other letters In a  vnln attempt to fln-J something descriptive of Sibyl's perianal appearance. 1  would hnvo welcomed a word upon the  color of her eye*, and tbe mention of ber  weight would have greatly nsslstnd me  In rectifying a meutnl plcturo that  RUlft wow he far ont of dnt<������. Nothing  of the sort existed Io these doemm-ms.  Sibyl's wit, vivacity, scholarship, nc-  coniplishmeoti���������it appeared tliat she  tang well���������wore often referred to, and  especially her amiability. The last was  ominous, for goodness of heart has  been set against beauty since the days  when our early ancestors dw-slt in tho  brandies of trees-.  My father did not say that he wished  me to starry Sibyl. He was so careful  not to say it that I caught him dodging  It on*every page g. all those letters.  Ilia satisfaction nt some word' of  mine in a late communication to him  'udicating that 1 was briujdag my  (vhole'heart home was really Muring,  md it was immediately followed..by  <ome  rather vague  allusions '.fo the  number of Sibyl's admirers. I was not  cheered by discovering that the chief  among them was a young man who had  just ascended the pulpit and might be  disposed to hold beauty as a mere  transitory earthly vanity and those  traits which are commonly lumped as  "goodness" to be the truly valid attrao  tions. There was also a hint abou* Arthur Strickland, and this 'was nearly  fatal,* for Arthur as a-, you in was a  special providence for hontbiy'girls. A  fel]bw wborhflp^hat trnul ie never gets  over it, so fa^as-1 have been able tc  Observe.  Now, upon the subject of beauty 1  am not quite right in my mind. I cannot honestly say that T ever so ntuclr  as asked a girl to dance, except /froui  motives of politeness,'unless she seemed to me to possess the element of  beauty. For'me ������\e whole matter begins there. I admit the existence of all  the admirable qualities that are mentioned by name in the dictionary, but  if they were united in one woman and  she were not beautiful I could as easily  fall in love >with the "Data of Ethics"  as with her.  It was a perfect certainty that my father wished me^'marry^Sibyir'nlThad"*  expressed such a hope long before, and  J knew that it was as strong in him  as ever, though thero was not a word  directly upon that theme in these last  letters. Doubtless he feared the usual  result of parental interference with a  young man's liberty of choice, and, besides* lie was too good a father to burden me-with, a'definite expression of  his wish. Therein lay all' the sorrow  of the situation. If he bad been the  sort of father that may disinherit a  fellow or invoke tho wrath of heaven  to punish disobedience, I should have  been positively pleased with the prospect of disappointing him. But he  would never do any such thing; he  would always bo kind and generous, always helpful, sincere, resourceful In  my Interests, a comrade through aud  through, always.a gentleman and the  everlastingly unapproachable model of  fathers. Confound him! That was  where ho had me, J should marry Sibyl  out of respect and jove for tho dear old  governor, supposing,, of course, that  tho girl would take mc, as she certainly  would, for precisely the same reason.  So tbat was nil settled, and lt remained only to guess and at last to  know what particular form of ugllnesi  the poor child had developed Into since  my oyes had last behold her. Sho must  have been almost 14 on that occasion,  but 'iny memory refused to servo me  In regard to lt. The wavering, composite linage which I have already mentioned wns tho best I could exhumo.  There had beon something peculiar  about Sibyl's hair, It wus whut the  children culled "culleo Imlr," because It  presented a pattern In colors, a widespread but singularly Inaccurato term,  as calico, otrlctly speaking, hns no pat-  torn. However, Sibyl's hair had many;  it underwent a el'iugo of huo much  moro violent than Is ordinary nnd very  cnprlelouH In Its scheme of progress.  Wheu she was a little girl, hor hair  was llght-or was It dnrk? I couldn'l  remember, Anyhow, It changed from  ono to tho other; changed to match tho  color of her eyes���������or did It match tbem  flrtt and not afterward? I couldn't  say. I remembered tho striped boad,  but not thc courso of its evolution.  Sibyl was a bright girl, though great-  ly repressed by embarrassment; aa  original girl, If over there was ono, for  ���������bo never said or did tho expected  thing. I remember when my father  brought bomo a Httlo dog In a basket  Of a present for Sibyl ki response to  ber iby but very earnest request. It  win tho (jiiperent looklnu boast that T  ever saw; surely nobody but my father  could havo picked It out, a creaturo  homely beyond belief, yet Impossibly  nmlablo, bright aud amusing, as tbo  event proved.  At tho tight of It Sibyl wns to*  raptured. Sbo gathered Bogy (for so  he wns named) to her borom and overwhelmed him wltb endearments. Almost Imm-wllntolj* afterward she toyete-  rioutly vanished, to be found, after con-  She used to sit nt the tabic, rigid, cm*  basranscd.  of her woe, sbe carefully steadied her  voice for this reply: "Uncle Sumner always likes homely dogs."  The uatural inference was. that Sibyl's pet had been a disappointment to  her, and tints my father viewed the  case. The truth was far away, as subsequently appeared. Sibyl saw in thc  selection of Bogy a crowning confirmation of her previous observations and  deductions. My father had ever a kind  word for a crop eared cur, and such  would look after hint on the street and  wish to be his dog. He would buy a  scrawny horse of a teamster and turn  it out to pasture for the rest of its days,  and he would give his patronage to the  freckled newsboy with a nose like a  HttleyjSiece of putty. Sibyl had seen  tli^e. things, and her sentence complete  would li'ave been this: "Uncle Sunnier  always likes homely dogs���������and me!"  This incident of, long ago was in my  mind as the ship that brought me home  sailed into New York harbor. It had  come up out of the "past as the result  of much delving among battered rubbish of memory. It showed that Sibyl  had recognized her misfortune early in  life, and in connection with the fact  that I had never received a portrait  of her in all the yoars of my absence it  possessed a melancholy value. We had  T".i"c"i7^i*g"e"d"~letters"-at~rare^intervals^--  essays I would better call them, sketches of travel on my part and on hers  tho quaintest comments upon matters  impersonal���������and I had asked her for a  picture more than once, without even  eliciting so much as a refusal.  A customs tug slid up along the side  of our big ship, and there stood my father on the little craft's deck. Not a  day older he seemed to me, straight,  stalwart, handsome and distinct from  all others. When he came aboard our  vessel, he seemed to be the captain or  an admiral over the captain's' head. It  was Impossible to see him anywhere  without the feeling that he must be In  command.  I had called to him as the tug ran  alongside, but ho had' failed to see me.  Upon our deck he looked straight at  me for a second's space without recognition; then he started and raised his  hands, surprised.  "Marshall!" he exclaimed, taking my  right hand in his left and laying the  other on ray Bhoulder.   "Marshall!"  Ho seemed to find an assurance in  the name, as If it helped him to realize  thot there was no mistake,  "Why, you've grown a foot!" ho  cried. "You'ro taller than I am, And  you've changed so���������I can hardly believe It's you."  "It began whllo I wns In Europe,"  I replied, "but I got the height whllo  I lay abed In Pretoria. It quito often  happens, of courso, that a fellow grown  nn Inch or two under such circumstances, but.I got nearly three."  My father complimented mo most  heartily upon my added stature nnd  robust appearance When ho hnd last  seen mo I bad stood scarcely S feet 10  and had beon hollow In tho chest from  a long habit of huddling over a tublef  when reading,  "Sibyl will bo utruck dumb at tho  eight of you," ho said, "Rho likes mon  of good height, nnd that's why every  llttlo llvo footer fulls In love with her,"  "How Is Sibyl looking these days?"  I asked, with carefully veiled anxiety,  "Bless thc dear child!" he responded  enthusiastically. "She's tho plcturo of  health."  When thnt's the best that con lo  said of a girl's looks, let Cupid drop  dead In tho scuppers and be washed  overboard.   I turned oiy face away  aud M-wuuvd,  CHAPTER II.  TIW WOWIT THAT COULD HAPPEN,  mHE thought of my father's Impatience touched rao deeply.  He was oue wuo bated luuioud  travel, especially lu tho warm  weather, yot ho came a thousand miles  for the sake of seeing mo a day earlier;  partly, alio, tbat I might bo spared tbo  necessity of hurrying to bim. IIo know  that there were matters I would like to  irrange in New York and old friends I  would wUb to see.  "I roust return tonight," bo said,  "There's a directors' meeting day after  fomorroW tliat i nave pledged my soul  to attend. Lucky foi- the collateral  that your steamer wasn't late, my boy.  And I'm *so glad, so deep down glad, to  see you."  The tears came into my eyes as he  spoke. He has such a strong and manly sincerity and such a voice. I inherited enough of it to sing fairly well,  but my ordinary speech, compared to  his, is like Jthe March wind toying with  a loose shingle on a barn.  "I'll go" back with you/' said I.  "I'm impatient to see Sibyl."  He looked at me with a quick of  pleasure, and I felt like ono who has  paid something on account of di bt.  The sensation was so 'lagiveablo th.it  I rushed oh recklessly.  "It's singular," said I, that a fellow ..so. susceptible',-as 1 should have  knocked around the world tor almost  five years and come homo with his  Lenrt absolutely unscarred. My little  flirtations and follies have hurt neither  myself nor any one else."  "That's good; that's mighty good," ho  said, with his hand upon my shoulder.  "In fact, it's too good to be true.   I'm  afraid you have seen your own heart  clearer than some others, for you're 'a  Eno figjire, of a man,' Marshall, to up������'  the old  fashioned  phrase.    But  I'm  sure you've always baeii straightforward and honest."  He pa,used and then added:  "As for your hurrying home to see  Sibyl, it won't do any good.   She isn't  there.    I told her you'd stay a few  days in New York."  I couldn't help feeling relieved. If  Sibyl had gone upon' a visit at'such a  time, it was clear that she could not  entertain any sentimental memories of  ������������������lie."'There was Ift'tl. reason why she  sho.uld., I., hacT never been especially  kind to her. indeed tho thought came  ������ti mo edged black with remorse that I  had done nothing to mako the child's  life happy under my father's roof.  Doubtless she remembered me very  justly as a selfish brute and viewed my  father's obvious wish regarding our future with feelings much more unpleasant than my own.  The subject was* not inviting, and I  gladly turned from it to tell the story  ���������of my adventures. Tims the time, was  'occupied until we reached the city.  Presently, when we were free of the  customs inspectoj-s, I began to observe  an indefinable and agreeable difference  in my father's manner from that which  I remembered. It became perceptible  when we discussed my stay in New  _York_and_my__b.ugjne.ss there, which  was connected with a small trust fur..-}:  my-owu through inheritance front my  mother. My father was one who had  by nature a liboisl hand with money,  yet he had beeu accustomed, to make  every dollar work for him kt some investment and had thus often beer  pressed for ready cash. In earlier day.5  I had admired his method of "contbln-.  Uo  hod  told me  what  provision  ���������planned for mc,  Ing goucroslty wltb prudence.

Tho chances  were tbat sbe would find mo rough In  my way*. I had gono llttlo Into society while In Europe. My position had  been to break rocks ln a laboratory,  and South Africa bad suroly uot im  proved me except in size': There was  at least a third more of me than there  had been, but the quality was no better. I might frighten away some of  my rivals, but one of them was a clergyman and protected by the cloth.  We had a delightful day' together,  driving in the afternoon, and dining  with great good cheer in the park; with  the scented trees for walls and themild  stars of June lighting the infinite altitude of the roof. As luck would have\  it, some fellows I had known in college were dining there, and they joined-'  us. My father was the best fellow at  the table, the life of the party, giving  a fine, high spirit to all the talk, and I  was proud of him.  Near midnight, after I had put ,  him aboard his train, I walked back  to the hotel in excellent humor, and  then, through the perversity of dreams,  I passed a'miserable night, beholding  Sibyl In fifty different guises, each of  them moro libelous .than its predecessor. I saw her blue eyed, brown eyed,  one eye blue and the other brown;  flaxen haired, dark haired, calico  haired; a wonderful'fanttt-.j-, based in-  the manner of a musical composition,  upon the theme cf a lanky girl sitting.  at a table and hiding her skeleton  hands under the cloth'. A heavy sleep  followed these distressing visions, aud  I awoke barely in time to keep an engagement that I had made with Bob  dishing. ��������� one c>f the men who bad  dined with us in the park.  Gushing and I'had nevei boon close  friends in college or afterward, but we  had met in Europe, which was a bond  of sympathy, and it appeared that he  had followed my fortunes with an interested eye. Ho had knoWn what  steamer was bringing me homo and  had been prevented from meeting her  only by his failure to receive the news*  that she had been sighted. I was surprised when he told me this and still  more by learning that.he had made a  plan for my entertainment. lie and  some of his friends of both sexes were  to attend a golf tourney on the West- -  Chester links and were to ride out io  automobiles.  I had been told that a place In one  of, the vehicles had been reserved for  me, but I had received no proper warning aboitt it.  "You'll have a nice girl to talk to,"  Cushing had  said,  but he had beeu  even less lucid in describing her than  my father in describing Sibyl.  If mv friend had shown me a reasonably, good; portrait  of  Anna   La-  ~nioine-^I-thlnk4-should-havc_found_,tho^  strength to decline the invitation,   lt  was not the proper time for me to run  any risks.  At the first glance the young lady  affected me most singularly. She had  remarkable eyes, rather long nud under  level, finely marked brows, the iris being of a warm brown, darkening very  slightly toward the pupil, and thus giving an effect of intensity. When she  looked* at me, it seemed as if those  eyes meant more than ordinary, but  what they meant I could not guesc.  They embarrassed and at tho samo  time enticed me.  She,, had unusual color In the lips,  which wore dollcatelv molded, yet  rather full. Upon the *������ i*me, the lower  part of the face was the more encouraging to the physiognomist, promising  duch qualities ns aro prised in women.  The brow looked dangerously Intelligent, and the eyes wero an unfathomable pUZSJlo,,  I.speak of these matters with par-  tlcularity because her face Impressed  me thus ln detail rather than ln gen-  oral, Por this reason I did not think  of her as a beautiful woman; one does  not pick beauty to pieces. Miss Ln-  molue's countenance was interesting  and notnble; sho would Burely be a  girl to twist tho necks of peopjo .as sho  walked along tho street. As a rule,  I nm not nttractod by a startling  woman; I prefer tho perfection of a  type, tho beauty thut mny pass unnoticed except by tho discerning. However, upon this occasion I was not In  a mood to be exacting.  Tho fact Is that I wns hnppy, jolly,  out for a good tlmo, Tho previous day  hnd loft Its mark on me, and tho  shadows of the night wero gono, I was  Rind through and through that I had  found my father so halo and strong,  so prosperous and cheery, My affection for him brightened tho world, It  made tho thought of my own fortunate  condition an unmixed delight, for between us thero could bo no question  of burdensome obligation, Moreover,  I hod my own Ideas of useful ond  agreeable work in tbo future, and the  prosc.it was a holiday.  Mr, nnd Mrs. Cushing, wbo rodo wltb  us, wero in high spirits. I bad never  mot tho lndy beforo, but we woro  friends io threo minutes.

In thq courso of time thoy multiplied, and the younger members wer������  wilder than- the old. They broke  hedges and fences, and foraged anywhere and everywhere.

Ono or two men got within range,  but their small shot whistled off tlie  animals' hides like hail on tho pavement.

It is to be hoped that the Laurier  Government will advance a policy  to secure that.a member of the  House shall not be permitted to  utilize his position to promote his  own pecuniary interest.
