This suggested to me the idea "that,If I could  make sufficient haste I might learn  what reception was accorded-my gift.  I made the little bout go so fast that  Miss Witherspoon cried put that tho  water would come in over the stern,  but I observed that her eyos were very  bright with the excitement ancl that she  seemed to like it quite as well as the  pretty speeches which I had been laboriously devising. Women are naturally  so deceitful that lying to them is like  playing the piano to Paderewski. Lucy  Ann, though the most truthful of her  sex, could have beaten me out of sight  at saying the thing that isn't meant*  $0<S s������ she toofe eau&tS gsieasuta in my  inferior performance, but she really did  kike to see me row a boat.  We found Jimmy Lamoine at the  landing, and I was very glad to see  him, for I disliked the idea of asking  M������iss Witherspoon to take the roses. As  for Jimmy, 1 rejoice to speak well of  him" in any way. and it is the solid  truth that he delighted to be serviceable. I wrote a hasty note on my card  to this effect:  "To the keeper of the harbor light,  from the poor sailor who struck the  outer reef.". :    ]"  Jimmy took the bouquet, and we  watched him till he squeezed his slender body through the hedge fence Into  the orchard.  "As for the pilot's fee"��������� said Mlsa  Wltherspoon. "But that doesn't matter.^-*.:-'-';"''. :>,*.  Whereupon I solemnly took from my  coat pocket the largest and finest rose  of all and put it into her hand. It wis  a great coup, carefully meditated.  --I-hever-thought-you!d-remember-.itri-  sald Lucy Ann, staring at the rose.  "I'll press it in the family; Bible.   The  dictionary Isn't good enough for it."  "Now," said I, "will you come out,  with me again just for a few minutes?"  She would have demurred, but I insisted :..  ��������� '..-:-'.iff'-.  - <������������������������������������'���������, ������������������  "I don't want to be alone out there.  If the girl doesn't wear my posies  when she comes down through tho  orchard 'again I shall be tempted to  jump into the hike."  , "Of course she'll wear thom," said  Lucy Ann, "Any girl would do that  much.!' '���������/���������'���������'������������������..-  "ThCn como and behold my joy."  She consented with reluctance, and  ; we rowed ouf far enough Into the lako  ;to command a view of the orchard.  ���������'Wo could see the lodge, but not distinctly because of tho abundance of  , foliage.   The girl was sitting on the  r veranda, but Jimmy was not visible.  Ho must have dono his errand and  gone on toward tho house,  "Sho's arranging thera now," said  Lucy Ann. "Evidently I did uot fix  them well enough to suit her."  I assured my young frlond that hor  work with tho roses had beeu of tho  hjghost order of excel lonco, but sho  still,soomod to bo hurt.  For my own  part, I waa tlattorcd and absurdly  pleased that tho girl should tako so  t much pains with my gift I should not  havo known what she was'doing except for Lucy Ann's suggestion, for wo  ' woro a long way off, and tho girl sat  by  a  table with  her  hack  turned  toward us] put after a very long time,  as itecomefl to mb, slio arose, holding  ' tho bouquet agalust her gown ns Jf to  try tho effect.

"Where  Should llie get rtoud lilies?"  "Thoro art a fow already at tbe u������  per end of the lake," said she.  "But do*you suppose she's been up  there alone?"  "Somebody has," answered she.  "That's certain."  I took up the oars and pulled toward  tho shore with the stroke of.a tired  fisherman who has been out in the rain  all day. /Lucy Ann sat In the stern  and tried to look sympathetic, but she  failed. When the boat touched the  beach, I did not immediately arise. I  leaned forward upon the oars.  "Did you see her toss anything in  through the window?" I asked.  "Yes," replied Lucy Ann in the hushed voice appropriate to a delicate subject.  , "Might have been a bean bag'by the  way she threw it, eh?"  "I didn't particularly notice," said  S^cyAnn.  "You're a gffest girl," Baid Ifextesd-  Jng my hand to assist her to rise.  "Don't say anything about this foolishness."  "Oh, no!" said she. "I won't tell a  single soul."  She gained the shore with my assistance and waited while I made the  painter fast. - I:  "Where is your rose?" I asked, turning toward her.  She put up her hand hastily to her  throat.  "I fastened it there," said she. "It  must be in the boat."        /;,  But it wasn't. Lucy Ann expressed  appropriate sorrow, but she did not  spend much time looking for the rose.  As we climbed the steep bank Jimmy  Lamoine suddenly appeared at the top  of it. His face wore that gravely pleased look which was habitual with, him  and always slightly accentuated when  lie had performed a task, for Jimmy  had the satisfaction of believing that  JW.hate.vet.he_didJva3_better_done���������than,  it could have been by another.  "Where were you this afternoon?"  asked Lucy Ann.  "Out on the lake," answered,the boy.  ���������"I went"'"out with Mr. Derringer and  Mr. Trask'."    "  "What to do?"  "Pond lilies," said Jimmy laconically.  Lucy Ann did not pursue the subject.  I turned a glance of suspicion upon  Jimmy, but it was obviously unjust.  He might have juggled with my errand  had I been alone, but not when the  commission had been accepted In the  presence of Miss ���������Wltherspoon, whose  schoolraa'nm manner seemed to hold  him in strict discipline. Moreover, lio  wns not Jn the least troubled by ray  look.  "I took 'cm up," said he. ."SI19 told  me that she was much obliged."  I removed my hat In acknowledgment  ���������of tho lady's message, and then we  walked silently up to tho houso.  At my door I found Derringer knocking.  "Whoro wore yeu after lunch?" ho  asked. "Trask and I wanted you to go  out on tho lake. Wo got somo pond  lilies. Como up and I'll show you  mine."  "Aro thoy all thoro?" I asked.  "All?" ho echoed. "Why, of course.  AH that I got.  Trask has somo."  "How nbout Jimmy?"  "IIo didn't want nny. What aro you  driving nt?"  "Somebody's been sending lilies to  tho girl."  Derringer exhibited great surprise.  "You don't moan It!" ho exclaimed.  ������������������ ������������������ ��������������������������� -X- -  man? Ic was because the girl knew it  and had dono it to me. If only she had  worn no iiowers tliat Would not have,,  hart me, but that she should have  worn some other fellow's���������probably  Trask's. But why. should Trask' send  iiowers. to her? How many girls did  the fellow want at one time? He  seemed devoted to Miss Jones in his  own peculiar, . misanthropic fa'sbiqn,  aud poor, littlo Lucy Aim was clearly  in love with him. I began to foresee  that Trask and I would havo an unpleasant interview some dtvy.  I* was thinking of this as I pugh'ed off  tho boat, and tho result was that I forgot to bang on to lier. She slid off the  bold beach and went skimming out  over the lake with the force of tho  impetus ' that I had unconsciously  given, so I had to go out in another  boat arid tow her back. And after all  this trouble there was no fire on the  rocks.  I waited till 0 o'clock and then gavo  it up, but not beforo warbling a little  ballad^ in case the girl should bo sitting  ou the rocks in the dark. She was not,  and I felt as foolish as one does Who  has talked a.few minutes to a person  that left the room unpercelved before  he began.  Altogether it was very strange. The  girl was nothing to me. Try as I  might, I could not think of her ns Sibyl.  Neither could I regard her as a stranger. It was beyond doubt the most  peculiar puzzle that r had ever encountered. The mind is a slave,to such  a problem; it rivets the attention. If  I Sad sot Scows who the girl was I  could have dismissed the subject, but  I knew that I did know, and it seemed  that I must surely speak the name,  that. I ������������������ should'-;wako up some morning  and find it proceeding audibly from  my lips.  .��������� When I returned from the vain cruise,  there were heavy clouds in the sky,  and I thought it might rain, but within  a'few. minutes they rolled apart, and  the night seemed to grow suddenly  ���������warm. I felt Strangely uneasy and  strolled out to the road to see whether  the patrol was on duty.  The faithful three were there, and  they welcomed me cordially to the  ranks. They seemed to be engaged in  extolling the Wltherspoon menage.  "I wish I had Mj*s. Witherspoon's  executive ability;" said Derringer.  "This place runs on greased wheels.  The machinery is so noiseless that it 'is  hard to believe that there is any."  "However," said Scovel, "there is.  There are a lot of servants on this  -placor-and-they-all-work-hardr-though-  Mrs. Witherspoon would discharge one  of them who dared to look tired. Sho  knows how to make a place restful.  Cast your eye on poor little Lucy Ann."  I observed that Trask, who had been  sitting on the fence, got down. There  was no reason why he shouldn't, if he  felt like it, and yet I saw something  worth noting in his manner.      ,  "Miss Witherspoon helps her aunt,"  said ho, "and you wouldn't wish her  to do otherwise."  "I would," said Derringer. "I'd like  to see her a. thousand miles from that  kitchen. In my opinion, it's a polite  fiction that Sho doesn't do anything but  mako the cake. I observe that she  spends most of her time there, and I  wish she bad something better to do."  "There can't bo anything bettor thnn  housekeeping," said Trask. "It Is tho  work of tho best women oh earth, the'  women who keep tho world wholesome  enough to llvo In, tho wives and mothers."  "Well, upon my word!" exclaimed  Scovel. "Tho misanthrope Bpoaks up  nobly. I didn't supposo you thought  that the world teas wholosomo enough  to llvo In."  "I don't do anything to mako It so,"  said Trask. "Neither do you, for thnt  matter. But, ns to Miss Wltherspoon,  sho Is not a drudge. Sho has hnd a  first rnto education; sho has associated  with cultivated persons; Hor position  horo is not In the slightest degree menial. Tho peoplo wlio como horo, ns  you know, aro of considerable social  consequence, nnd Miss Wltherspoon  meets them upon a level of perfect  equality,"  "Why In thunder shouldn't sho?" demanded Derringer. "Tho girl might  hnvo boon born on Fifth nvemio for nil  thnt I can noo. But thnt doesn't altor  tho fact that oho works about 1(1 hours  a dny ln this Juno weather when sho  ought to ho at play."  "Not bo had ns thnt," said Scovel  "Trask gnaws hor chains once In  awhile. There was a .Tn panose artist  wlu> mr.de' a hundred yiewa of one  mountain, hut thrift* nothing to tha  sketches thnt Trask has mado of Miss  Wlthorspoon."  I did not tee nny rciiBon why Trask  upon'me. ir a gin isn't'��������� beautiful, or  anywhere near it, yet a man of cultivated artistic appreciation thinks that,  she is, tvhat shall a third person conclude ? My own romance was .sufn>  cicatiy������complicated, but I began to suspect that it was simple comparedVto  Trask's. I-was tempted to try him a  little further.^ ' ;  "Beauty,to me," said.I, "is always a  question of more or less close approximation to a type; Beauty is defined for  us. We may hardly have our own opinions any more than we may quarrel  with the dictionary. Miss Witherspoon  is a charming girl, but her face may be  said to lack the element of ideal"���������  "Oh, that be hanged!" exclaimed tho  artist fervently. "Third rate studios  ring w|th it. I beg your pardon, of  course, but types have about as much  to do with beauty as tho major scale,  has to do with one of ohopin's nocturnes. Do, re. nil, fa, sol, la, si! Eyes,  nose, mouth, hair, outline, coloring, expression���������nature can play a million  millions of tunes ou thoso seven notes.  Can you measure harmony with a yardstick? No, my friend. You should simply pray for God given appreciation."  "There is somethlug in'what you  say," remarked Scovel judicially,  "though I suspect it Would be possible  for you to know more about music.  However, you must admit that your  puyi! in art is a perfect illustration of  the English blond type."  "There is'no such thing as an English blond type," said Trask,'throwing  his half burned cigar into the road,  '���������nor ail Etbiopfaii brunette type, nor���������  It's0 clouding up again," he added,  breaking the thread of his discourse  short off. "It's going to rain. Good  night.*!    '  He walked away toward the gate.  "Who is the lady, if,it's permissible  to inquire?" said Derringer.  "Permissible?" echoed Scovel. "Why  not? We're getting into such a muss  of mystery out here that we can't do  anything. To the best of my knowledge and belief/she isi'a Miss Jones,  assume .tuat there..was some reason  why Miss Jones had escaped tha dust.  She greeted 1110 with somewhat formal cordiality, and yet the girl was not  in the' least given to affectation. If  her manner was a t'riiie noticeable, as  of course it shouldn't be, I judged that  the cause might be sought in her scant  experience with tho country, for a  drawing room maimer raider a tree is  like a dress suit in church���������II savors of  profanity. Also, there was a faint suggestion that the lady had something on  her mind.  In spite of all those thoughts I had(  room iu my mind for a recognition of  her beauty. She was certainly a perfect illustration of something, oven  though Mr. Scovel may havo been mistaken in giving England the credit of  tho typo. For my own part, being a  bit of a jingo, like Lucy Ann, 1 would  rather think Miss .Tones, to be thoroughly American. However, neither  her nationality nor her good looks  could account for the absence of dust  on her gown, or i'or the sprightly grace  with, which she rose from her seat  when I offered her my hand to alight.  I oughtn't to mention it of course,  but one's knees, even in youth, will  stiffen a bit when one rides seven  miles on a straight backojt?'seat with  not loo much room in front of ir.  There is no need that a fellow should  be a born detective in order that ho  may note such matters.  When the lady after a few agreeable  words had gone iuto the house, I lighted  a cigar and strolled out io the gate.  The tracks made by tho wheels of Mrs.  Witherspoon's wagon were plainly to  be seen in the dust of tho road. ^ 1 could  trace them very conveniently, even  When walking on thc sido path.  At a point where tho road was lowest, about 50 yards from the edge of  the hill���������a spot invisible from the Wltherspoon house���������I observed that the  wagon tracks exhibited a break in their  steady course. A man with1 one eye,  and that not of the best, could have  read   this   record   In   the   dust.   The  guardian or somebody   bad swung round, and some one had  ley, but I cannot testify   ?ot In-   ������r out?  l* f������r a thousand hi  lars.' There were dainty footprints In  the dust.  I returned to the house hastily, as If I  had an errand, though really I hadn't.  This discovery did not suggest any Immediate action; on the other hand, It  whispered of prudence. I seemed <> to  have solved my riddle, but my ultimate  course was as much in doubt as before.  In the main porch I  found  Trask  *"  who is living in St. Jo and comes out ,   , . A,    - ,    ,    ,  here for art lessons.   I have heard that | ^onl\a^Btov.pe^ tbe.forward w^el?  her father or  has a lot of money,  on that point. Sneaking as a disinterested observer���������if any man can be  disinterested In the presence of such a  stunning girl as Miss Jones���������I would  say that there is a sentimental attachment between Trask and the young  lady.snnd that there's some sort of opposition, I don't know what."

Han Suffered for Twelve Years and  was Ultimately Cured Through  the Advice of a Friend.  "Twelve years ago," says Mr. Wm.  Eirwry, of Welland Avenue, St. Catharines, "I was living'in tho town of  G'dnanoquo, and the physicians there  told me 1 had heart disease. From  'thnt time and up to four years ago  I often had severe spells of the trouble. Tho least exertion would bring  on violent palpitation, and at other  times 1 would become dizzy, nervous  and frightened and my heart would  almost cease to beat. I became, reduced in flesh and insomnia followed.  1 was hopeless of finding a cure for  I had been treated by an experienced  doctor, and had taken many advertised remedies without getting any  benefit, One day a neighbor strongly  advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills, and acting on his advice I got  a half dazen boxes. I soon found  much relief through the use of the  pills, and after continuing the treatments for a couple of months JE was  agaiji enjoying perfect health. I have  not since had any return of the trouble and I feel safe in saying that the  cure is a permanent one, and I can  strongly advise, the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to all who sniffer  from similar trouble." The reporter  tan only odd: im-3 1-lr. 2mi;i*.y Is vr^l  known in St. Catharines, is a prominent worker in Methodist circles,  ancl has the highest respect of all  who know him. *  If you have any symptoms of heart  trouble,, neuralgia, indigestion, rheumatism, anaemia or any of the nuniT  morons troubles caused by poor or  watery blood, you will find new  health and strength in a fair use of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Do not  waste money or further endanger  your health by the J. use of substitutes���������get tho genuine pills with "the  full name, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  for Pale People," on the wrapper  around every box.

Robert   Louis    Stevenson   Was    Impressed l>y Their Bcsiuty.  Robert Louis Stevenson spoke in  his own attractive way of the nomenclature of the states? towns "and rivers  of our land thus: "And when I asked  the name of a river from the brake-  man and heard it was called the Susquehanna.' the beauty of the name  seemed to be part' and parcef of the  beauty of the land. As when Adam  with divine fitness named the creatures, so the word Susquehanna was  at once accepted by the fancy. Thnt  was the name, as no other could be,  for that shining river aud desirable  valloy.   ,  "None, can care for literature ln itself who does not tako a special pleasure in the sound of names, and there  is no part of tho world where nomenclature is so rich, poetic, humorous  and picturesque as the Unite;! States  of America. All times, races and languages havo brought their contribution. Pekin is in the same state  with Euclid, with Bdlefontaine and  Sandusky;: Chelsea, with its London  association of red brick, Sloan square,  and the Kind's Road is own suburb to  stately and primeval Memphis.  "The names of the states and territories themselves form a chorus of  sweet and most romantic vocables-  Delaware, Ohio, Indiana, Florida.  Iowa. Wyoming, Minnesota and tho  Carolinas; there are few poems with  a nobler music for the ear; a songful,  -teiteM ' *.?zi&, 'sad IS the s������w Horn**  shall arise from the western continent  his verse will be enriched, his pages  ring spontaneously, with the names of  states and cities that would strike the  fancy in a business circular."  ; Wont's-for -Young Motheps.  Votes  end  Kisses.  ���������In_the^lettei:Sj.ofLJ1iTJllia]njC.ojv.per,.lhe_  poet, is an interesting description of  some old, fashioned political campaign  tactics in England: "We were sitting  yesterday after dinner, ti;e two la<J;!������s  and myself, very coaiposedly and without the least apprehension of any such  intrusion in our snug parlor, ono lady  knitting, tlie other netting, and the  gentlemen winding worsi! d, whon to  our unspeakable surprise a mob appeared before the wlnaow, a smart  rap- was heard at the door, tho boys  hallooed and the maid announced Mr.  Grenville.. Puss���������one of the tame hares  ���������was (unfortunately let out of her box,  .uo that the candidate, with all his good  'friends at his heels, was refused ad-  ���������mlttauco at the grand entry and referred to the back door as tho only pos-  -siblo way of approach, In a minute  tho yard, tho kitchen and the parlor  were filled. Mr. Grenville, advancing  toward me, shook me by tho hand with  ia degree of cordiality that was ox-  Ttromely seducing. When the conference ended, Mr. Grenville squeezed my  "hand again, kissed the ladles and withdrew. Ho kissed likewise the maid iu  the kitchou and seemed upon tho wholo  a most loving, kissing, kind hearted  gentleman,"  I.lUi.'H u "XoNey" Clerk,  "Thnt now salesman," remarked a  floorwalker In a Broadway liabordash-  er's storo to tho proprietor, "scorns to  ho nn Inquisitive sort of follow. When  business In slack ho noses nbout,:look-  ins; at every!hIny on tho shrives, examining lags and pooping Into boxes  thnt are not strictly In his department.  I think I'll speak to lilm,"  "Vou will plonao do nothing of the  Bort," answered the proprietor, "Clerks  who 'nose' about, an yen express It, In-  Btend of posing by tlio door, aro tho  young mon who know exactly what  goods wo have In stook and whoro to  iind thein. Thoy du not koop u customer walling while thoy run to you  or mo and risk losing a sale, Thero Is  nothing about niy stock thnt I don't  wunt my clerks to know. I would rather thoy find out for themselves-than  go running to you for lul'oriuatlou."  Don't give baby a sleeping draught,  soothing mixture or opiate of any  kind except by the order of a competent doctor who has seen the  child. Remember that all so-called'  soothing mixtures contain dangerous  opiates. If your child, is restless  give it Baby's Own. Tablets, as they  aro absolutely harmless and in a  natural way promote health-giving  sleep.  Don't give medicine to check the  movement of baby's bowels in diarrhoea except on thc advice of a doc-  -to r-,���������Fee d���������th e_ child���������spaiungl-y and,  give Baby's Own Tablets 1,0 cleanse  the bowels of irritating secretions.  Keep the abdomen warm. This treatment will' cure diarrhoea.  Don't give a young child harsh cathartics, such as castor oil, which  gripe ancl torture. Baby's Own Tablets have a gentle laxative action  and never fail to curo constipation.  Mrs. .7. D.

Ont. ... ��������� '  A Study of the Melancholy Dane nnd  His Moods.  The tragedy of Hamlet is tint a man  of a peculiar introspective temperament is called upon to settle a practical  crisis. Hamlet knew this very well  himself, and that makes the tragedy  deeper. Brutus never doubted when  once hia decision waa taken that he  ���������was the right man to cure tlie evils of  Rome; Hamlet doubted from the very  beginning.  Tho times are out of Joint.   O cursed spite  That ever I was born to set them right.  He was too One, too distinguished,  too Intellectual, a character to bo the  rough instrument which fate demanded. He has the fatal malady of analyzing bis own motives, which is generally destructive of action. If you once  begin asking yourself what wijl be the  results and consequences of a definite  act, you will find that at ttoe moment  of action your will is paralyzed by excess of scrupulosity, as Hamlet's was  when with his drawn sword he saw his  uncle praying. It was a disease of will  from which Hamlet was suffering. In  any other times It would not have been  so fatal. In this particular time, when  he was called upon to do a specific act  ��������� to avenge his father and kill the  usurper���������it is not he, but a man rather  of the Fortinbras build, who will be  the savior of society. Observe, too,  that, like many intellectual men, he  cannot be sure of his own moods. .He  sees tbs $frs*t Off Ua saurdeml father,  but Is it an honest ghost, is it really  his father's spirit? Hamlet believes in  it on the battlements of Elsinore, but  he entirely disbelieves it in another  mood, when despite the evidences of  his senses he talks of "the bourn from  which no traveler returns." The traveler wdio had returned is dismissed ap-  parently as a* fantasy of his brain. And  these supernatural visitings in such an  analytic and introspective mind do not,  as a .'matter.,of, fact| supply him with  the motive for his subsequent action.  The ghost.can make him put on an antic disposition, play with such creatures as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern,  deride the senile humorings of Polo-  nius and lessen the torrent of his words  against his mother. But what the  ghost cannot do is to make him kill his  uncle. IIo murders him at last, more  or less accidentally, because his mother was poisoned and Laertes had play-  "ed~foul~in-the-f encing - boufc-HSo-euri-  ously destructive of strong, practical  volition is an intellectual malady when  it has grown morbid���������the tendency toward introspection, self analysis, metaphysical speculation.���������W.

The wage reductions and the reductions in earnings of working men  through closed industries and decreased output during the past 12  months have been pretty general  throughout.the United States. Not  only in manufacturing but in railroading was there a cutting down of  expenses, and of the larger transportation companies materially reduced their mechanical and operating  staffs. By the closing down of such  companies as tho Pullman Company  thousands aro thrown out of employment.

A proud man can never be.a loser-  no, not even when ho renounces his  pride.  It is much less for a man's honor to  distrust his friends than to be deceived  by them.  Pew people have the wisdom to like '  reproofs that would, do them good better than praises that do thera hurt.  lt is with true love as with ghosts  and apparitions, a thing that everybody  talks of and scarce anybody hath seen.

Then he" carefully polished his .eyeglasses and put them in his pocket.  He had no reading'matter with him,  and he found that it rested his eyes  to remove tho glasses. To his near-  sighted vision the scenery then became  a blur. Like most absentminded meu,  he wns given to introspection, and once  the glasses were off the other occupants of the car ceased to distract  his attention.  Staring fixedly ahead he" began to  speculate upon tho probable outcome  of the business arrangement he had  just put through. Finding that the  motion of the train was not pleasant  he swung his seat around until he  was riding with his back to the engine.  Lost in thought, he never noticed that  he was staring directly into the face  of a remarkably pretty girl who had  the seat-behind him. ' . .   ,   .        <  His steady gaze disconcerted her,  and she, too, swung her seat about,  but, with feminine curiosity, she could  sot help ete&Jisjg aa efteaaiftsai glance  around. Preston was not at all a bad  looking chap, but the fixed regard of  oven a fine looking follow became most  annoying, and Ruth Vbicent was glad  , when the call for luncheon in the  dining car enabled her to escape the  searching gaze for awhile.  Preston's stare was so steady and  undemonstrative that she could not  very well complain to the conductor,  but it was none the less unpleasant.  As the ducky waiter, brought the first  course of her luncheon she caught herself hoping tbat the rude man would  not take his place opposite her at tbe  tablo and so spoil the meal for her.  But Preston had no Intention of visiting the dining car. He was not even  aware of the call, so deeply immersed  in thought was he. Not until the porter, in his perpetual cleaning up of  the car, touched him on the shoulder  did he rouse himself with a start  "Yo' book, sah?" he asked, holding  out a magazine.

Isn't it?" .  - iUiss Vincent gasped. "See hora," slie  saM decidedly, "you have been very  annoying ever since we left Washington. This subterfuge of taking my  magazine and pretending tbat it is  yours is very clever, but I must decline  to hold any further conversation with  you. Unless you immediately turn  your seat around and refrain from addressing me or even staring at me I  shall appeal to tho passengers. There  are some men in the car,"  The stress she placed upon the  "men" made Preston wince, bat he  would not give up so easily. "Lot me  show you," he said, drawing some papers from his pocket, "that 1 am really  Taul Preston."  "Will you turn around," she demanded sharply, "or will you force me  to make a scene?" Preston sank weakly back in his seat and wheeled it  about until it faced the forward end of  the car. The Pullman was. one of those  built with boy windows, find tiny  t$sip* o������ geeki������$ g������ass were tee jwacfeS  between the windows feu to enable him  to see behind him. Preston watched the  clean cut profile attentively.  ���������This young woman interested him.  He was not much used to feminine society. What with his self absorption  and his nearsightedness he was scarcely fitted to be a ladies' man, and he  had permitted his business to completely absorb him. Now he glued his eyes  to the glass and vainly regretted that  he had found himself in a situation  from which he was unable to extricate  himself. His sister Mabel 'had been  visiting in Washington. He must have  given her the magazine and she in turn  have loaned it to a friend. It would  be easy enough to find out from her to  whom It had been loaned, but' meanwhile the state of affairs was decidedly  unpleasant. He had been accused of  flirting, a thing he most cordially detested; and this resolute young woman  absolutely refused to permit him to  make any explanation.  When the train, reached New -.York  -he"tqok-one-oi?"-the~downtown~ferries,-  golng direct to his office, and it was not  until dinner time that he met the members of his family. Then, to his surprise���������and hers���������he met Ruth Vincent  formally. It was an awkward moment, and if he Jiad felt ill at ease that  afternooL nis revenge w^s ample.' Miss  Vincent was profuse iii ber apologies,  he was elaborate in his explanations,  and it was not until dessert was reached that .they felt that a treaty of peace  had been effected.  It was not until two weeks aftor that  that the final treaty was entered Into,  and Ruth promised that she would bo-  come Mrs. Preston and see that hi3  absentmindednoss did iiot lead him into further troublo.  Now whon ho travels sho accompanies him, and you could not induce him  to lay claim to any periodical unless  sho flrst assures him that it ls all right.

Many a girl' who can't sing knows  it and for that reason is a credit and  en ornament to her sex.  It is safe to .touch a man who will  lend you his silk umbrella for a money  loan.  Many a man sits down and waits for  the opportunity that is laughing at him  around the corner.  Perhaps a woman can't keep an ordinary secret, but she does not mention  it when she plays the races and picks  the wrong horse.

"Some men seem born with a scrap-  book instead cf a mind," says the London Spectator. "All their or.perienees,  however gained, remain disconnected  and are merely a selection of oddments, a selection which gets bi������������cr  as they get older, but out of which  they can make nothing. Whil**tbey  nre very young no one perhaps notices-  their mental misfortune. Thov display  their scraps with pride and receive*  praise for their quantity and their  quality. A good memory is a sulficient  equipment for a starter in tho race of  life, and it is amazing how far it will  take a man even when childhood ia  long past and ho has his way to make  in the world. Socially speaking, the  scrapbook minded have almost always  a superficial success. Perhnps the fsrm  of scrap exchange in which they excel  most is of a personal nature. They  forget nothing. They know what So-  and-so does, and they know what he  or she did and even very likely what  his or her grandfather used to do, but  as to what he and sho actually are,  though all the evidence is before them,  thoy can form no estimate. Their  store of knowledgo does not help them  to any moral conviction."  Jt A  ; Less of It to Mind.  Ho liked to mind thc  baby'.  It seemed a peaceful life. ,.

Its broad, depressed body is-  mouuted on very short, strong legs,'  terminating te We, $<w������rfu! claws  esrft������<2 to dlggrtQ. IJhtt small head terminates in a slender snout. Although  the mouth is toothless, the palate .is:  studded with recurved spines. The  slender, extensile, glutinous tongue is^  well adapted for'tiio capture of ants<  and other insects. Stiff, hedgehog-like-  spines mixed with long, coarse hairs  cover the back. It is stronger in proportion to its size than any other  quadruped, and its peculiar build gives  it wonderful power is digging. If  when pursued it is unable to flee to its  home burrow it digs a retreat for the  occasion, and if unable to escape entirely underground so compresses itself  Into its excavation that all the surface  presented to its pursuer is a bunch of  spines, most unpleasant to attack.  A Grotesque Dreaaer.  The Rev. Robert Stephen Hasrkes,  the Cornish poet and antiquary, who  died In 1875, wore crimson gloves and  wading boots up to the hip and was  sometimes seen riding on a mule in a  poncho, a blanket with holes cut in it  -forhis-head-and-armsr-He-was-asked-by-  a woman about this, garment and replied that it was tile robe of an "Armenian archimandrite." His ordinary  clerical attire consisted of a brown  cassock with red buttons, girded with  a cincture. This costume was criticised at a ruridecanal meeting, and he  retorted hotly: "At all events, brethren, you will allow me to remark tbat  I do uot make myself look like a waiter out of place or an unemployed undertaker and tbat I do scrupulously  abide by the injunction of the seventy-  fourth canon of 1003."
