TROVE went to the inn at Dan-  nemora that evening he left  Barrel and there found a letter. It Bald that Leblauc was  living near St. Albans. Posted in  Plattsburg and signed "Henry Hope,"  tbe letter gave no hint of bad faith,  %rb������ with all haste he went to the place  J* owned. He was there a fortnight,  seeking the Frenchman, but getting no  word of him, and then came a new letter from the man Hope. It said now  that Leblanc bad moved on to Middle-  bury. Trove went there, spent the  last of his money and sat one day in  the tavern office, considering what to  do, for now, after weeks of wandering,  he was, it seemed, no dearer the man  he sought. He had soon reached a  thought of some value-^this lnfprma- j  tion of the unknown correspondent,  was at least unreliable, and he would  give it no further heed. What should  he do? On that oolnt he was not Ion*  undecided, for while he was thinking  of it a boy came and said, "There's a  lady waiting you in the parlor, sir."  He went immediately to the parlor  above stairs, and there sat Polly in her  best gown, "the sweetest looking crea-  ture," he was wont to say, "this side  of paradise." Polly rose, and his  amazement checked his feet a moment;  then he advanced quickly and would  bave kissed her, but she turned her  face away and stood looking down.  They were in a silence full of history.  Twice she tiled to speak, but an odd  stillness followed the first word, giving  possibly the more adequate expression  to her thoughts.  "How came you here?" he whispered  -presently  "I���������I have been trying to find you,"  said she at length.  He turned, looking from end to end  of the large room.   They were alone.  ; "Polly," he whispered, "I believe you  do love me."  For a little time she made no answer.  "No," she whispered, shaking her  head. "That is, I���������I do not think I love  you."  "Then why have you come to find  me?"  "Because���������because you did not come  to find me," she answered, glancing  "down at tbe toe of her pretty shoe.  "Dear Polly!" he said as he took her  hand in his. Gently she pulled it  away.  "I���������I cannot speak to you now," she  whispered.  Then a long silence. The low music  of a million tiny wings came floating  in at the window. It seemed, some-  bow, like a voice of the past, with mln-  utm, like tbe bees, bytonhig indlstln-  gulshably, Polly and Trove were  thinking of the Bamc things, "I can  doubt htm no more," she thought, "and  I know���������I know that he loves me."  They could hear the flutter of bird  wings beyond the window, and in tho  sttthMss tbey got some understanding  of each other. Sho turned suddenly  and went to where he stood,  "Sidney," she said, "I am sorry, I  am sorry If I have hurt you."  She lifted one of his hands and  prossed her rod cheek upon it fondly.  In a moment he spoke.  "Long ago I knew that you were  doubting me, but I couldn't help it,"  be said.  "It was that-tbat horrible secret,"  she whispered.  "I bad no right to your love," said  hi, "untir-ho hesitated for a Httlo-  "until I could toll you tbe truth."  "You loved somebody elseT she  whispered, turning to blm. "Didn't  you now?  Tell me."  "No," said be calmly. "Tbo fact la���������  tbe fact is, I bad learned that my  father was a thlof,"  "Your father!" the answered. "Do  you think I care what your father did?  Your honor and your love were enough  for me."  "1 did not know," be whispered,  "aud I should have made my way to  you, but"��������� be paused again,  "Bat what?" she demanded impa*  tiently.  "Well, It wm only fair you should  have a chance to meet other, and I  thought you wero in love with Itob*  crts,"  ���������'Roberts! He would bare been glad  of my love, I can tell you that," She  looked up at blm. "I bave endured  much for you, Sidney Trove, and I can.  not keep my iccrot any longer. He  suys that Darrel is now in prison tot  your crime."  "And you believe bl������r Trove whispered.  "Not that," she answered quickly,  "but you know I loved tbe dear olt)  man. I cannot think him guilty any  more than I could think It of you, but  there's a deep mystery in it all. It haa  made me wretched. Every one thinks  you know more than you have told."  "A beautiful mystery!" the young  man whispered. "He thought I should  be convicted. Who Avouldn't? I think  herloved me, so that he took the shame  and the suffering to save me."  "He would have died for you," she  answered, "but, Sidney, it was dread-  ful to let them take him away. Couldn't  you have done something?"  "Something, dear Polly! And I with  a foot in the grave?"  "Where did you go that night?"  "I do not know, but in the morning  I found myself in our great pasture  and was ill. Some instinct led me  home, and, as usual, I had gone across  lots." Then he told the story of that  day and night and the illness that followed.  "I, too, was ill*" said Polly, "and 1  thought you were cruel not to come tc  me. When I began to go out of doors  tbey told me you were low with fever.  Then I got ready to go to you and tb"1  ������err day I saw you paas the door. I  There, sat Polly in her best gown.  thought surely yon would come to sue  me, but you went away."  Polly's lips were trembling, and she  eovered her eyes.  "I feared to be unwelcome," said be,  "You and every one, except my mother, were determined that I should marry Roberts," Polly went on. "He has  been urgent, but you, Sidney, you  wouldn't have me. You have done ev*  erythlng you could to help him. Now  I've found you, and I'm going to tell  you all, and you've got to listen to me,  He has proof, he says, that you are  guilty pf another crime, and���������and be  says you are now a fugitive trying to  escape arrest."  A little silence followed, In which  Trove was thinking of the Hope letters and of Roberts' claim that be was  engaged to Folly.  "You have been wrapped in mysteries long enough, I shall not let yon  go until you explain," she continued,  "There's no mystery about this," said  Trove calmly, "Roberts Is a rascal,  and that's the reason I'm bore,"  Sho turned quickly, with a look oi  surprise,  "I mean It. He knows I am guilty  of no crime, but be does know that I  am looking for Louis I/oblanc, and ho  has fooled mo with lying letters to  keep mo out of tbe way and win you  with his guile."  A serious look oamo into Polly's eyes.  "You are looking for Louis Leblanc,"  she wbisperod.  "Yes, It is tlio first more In a plan  to free Darrel, for I am sure that  Leblanc committed the crime, I ahull  know soon aftor 1 meet blm,"  "How?"  "If be should bave a certain mark  on the back of bis left band and were  to satisfy me In two other details I'd  give my llfo to one purpose���������that of  making htm confess. God help me! 1  cannot and tbe man. But I shall not  give up,  I shall see th9 governor."  Turning bor face away and looking  out of the window she felt for his  hand, Tbon she prossed it fondly,  That was the giving of all sacred  things forever, and bo knew It.  "I do love you, Polly," said Trove at  length, "I've answered your queries,  all of tbem, and now It's my tarn. It  two were nt Robin's Inn I should put  my arms about you and I should not  let you go until���������until you had promised to bo my wife."  "And I should not promise for at  least an hour," said she, smiling, as she  turned, her dork eyes full of their sew  discovery, "Let us bo home." .  "Tm TJolng- to be imperative," said  he, "and you most answer before I will  let you go"���������  "Dear Sidney," said she, "let's wait  until we reach home. It's too bad to  spoil it here. But"��������� she whispered,  looking about the room, "you may kiss  me once now."  "I must get work somewhere. My  money is gone," said Trove.  "Money!" said she, opening her purse.  "I'm a Lady Bountiful. Think of it  I've $200 here. Didn't you know Riley  Brooke canceled the mortgage? Mother  had saved this money for a payment."  "Canceled the mortgage!" said Trove.  "Yes, the dear old tinker repaired  him, and now he's a new man. I'll  give yon a job, Sidney."  "What to do?"  "Go and see the governor, and then���������  and then you are to report to me at  Robin's Inn. Mind you, there's to be  no delay, and I'll pay you. Let's see,  I'll pay you a hundred dollars."  Trove began to laugh.  "I shall stay tonight with a cousin  at Burlington. Oh, there's one more  thing���������you're to get a new suit of  clothes at Albany, and, remember, it  must be very grand."  It was near train time, and they left  the inn.  "I'm going to tell you everything,"  said she as they were on their way to  the depot. "The day after tomorrow I  am to see that dreadful Roberts. I'm  longing to give him his answer."  Not an hour before then Roberts had  passed them on, his way to Boston.  (To Be Continued)  PIONEER   COURT   INCIDENTS.  Free and Easy  Manners In Early Illinois Trials.  Most of the early Illinois courthouses were logbuilt but in some districts, says the author of "Lincoln, tbe  Lawyer," the sessions were held in the  barrooms of taverns, and the absence  of all formality In the proceedings is  best Illustrated by the fact that in the  circuit court of Washington county,  held by Judge John Reynolds, the sheriff usually heralded his honor by singing out, "Come in, boys! Our John is  a-goin' to hold court!" to which cordial  invitation those having business with  the law responded.  Another sheriff in Union county made  landable-^ea!orts_tQ_imeet_the_require---  ments of the occasion by snouting out  this singular announcement: "Oh, yes!  Oh, yes! Oh, yes! The honorable judge  is now opened!"  In one case a judge who desired to  display his learning instructed the jury  very fully, laying down the law with  authority, but the jurors, after deliberating some hours, found themselves  unable to agree. Finally the foreman  rose and asked for additional instructions.  "Judge, this 'ere is the difficulty," he  explained, "The jury want to know if  that thar what yoiivtold us was r'al'y  the law, or on'y list your notion."  EMBROIDERED TRUTH.

Reasons Why Ancient Fiddles Are Better Than New.  Fabulous prices are sometimes paid  for old violins, and many an enthusiastic musician would part with bis  last dollar to possess one of the masterpieces of Stradivarius or Guarneri-  us or another of the famous makers of  a century or two ago.  The questioned superiority of these  old and often battered instruments has  been variously ascribed to the peculiar  quality of the varnish used in their  construction, to the elasticity of the  wood employed and to the ripening and  Improving effects of age and long use.  Of late years, however, much credence has beeu given the suggestion  of an eminent authority that the real  cause of the superiority of the old instruments is due to a peculiar warping of the wood to a higher arch, a  buckling caused by the position of tho  "F" holes and sound post.  It might at first thought be supposed that the same effect could be produced by giving an equal arching to a  new instrument, but the effect, If attained, Is not permanent, because with  age the arching increases until too-  great a degree of rigidity is the result.  ENGLAND AND CANADA.  Much  Interest Being Taken  In  Next  August's Artillery Contest.  Arrangements have been completed  for an interesting competition during  the first week of August between British Royal Garrison Artillery Volunteers and the Artillery Militia oi 'he  Dominion of Canada. On or about  July 12, a detachment, consisting ot  six officers and some thirty non-commissioned officers and gunners, will  sail for Montreal, under the command  of Col. Sydney Wishart. 1st City of  London Artillery. Col. ttie Earl nl  Stradbroke, V. D., chairman of the  council of the National Artillery Association, will accompany the detachment. Field artillery competitions will  be held in Ontario, and garrison competitions in the forts at Halifax, N S.  It is well on toward 30 years since  a team of volunteer artillery visited  Canada, the first and only prevknis  occasion on which such a visit was  made being in 1884. The Canadians  returned the compliment in 1897. when  1~lpScilliy"T?������lWt������d"^ e"ta:ehTneTnit" of  Canadian artillery, under the command of Col Miriden Cole, took part  in the National Artillery Association  meeting at Shoeburyness. and distinguished itself by winning the Queen's  Cup in the grorm-firing comoetition.  Recently the Dominion Artillery Association renewed its invitation, and  the National Artillery Association  found itself in a nositinn to accept it.  The selection of Col. Wishart to command the detachment is one that will  be entirely acceptable *o British volunteer artillerymen. He is recognized as a thoroughly competent ganner.  and possesses the tact and other qualities necessary to make the visit a  comnlete success. The presence of  Lord Stradbroke, who takes the keenest possible interest in artillery work,  will be of immense service, and the  volunteer gunners mnv rest assured  that they willbe worthily represented during the approaching visit to  Canada. Tt may be mentioned, as  showing that Lord Stradbroke's interest in the volunteer artillery is of  a practical kind, that his own regiment, the 1st Norfolk "Royal Garrison  Artillerv, won the King's Oup in the  National Artillery Association comne.  titions at ShoeburvnesB ip 1905, wh*n  he himself was present with his detachment,  A committee of selection, eonsM*  ing of Lnrrl Stradbroke, Col.

CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS  Doctors failed to cure Mr. De Cour-  cey because they were satisfied, to  treat the stomach instead of getting  at the cause of trouble in the liver  and bowels.  The most complicated and deep-  seated digestive troubles yield to  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, because of their direct and combined  action on the liver, kidneys and  bowels. We are continually receiving such letters as the following in  regard to the failure of mere stomach treatment:  Mr. Patrick De Courcey, Midgell,  lot 40, P.E.I., writes: 'For some  lime I had stomach .trouble, and was  scarcely ?able to do anything at all.  I was treated by doctors, but they  ���������did not seem to do me anv good. A  friend advised me to trv Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills, and I did so, to  very great advantage, for mv old  trouble has disappeared, and. though  rmst middle age. I feel youn<? and  heartv again. I have groat faith in  Dr. Chase's medicine."  Anotner interesting case of liver  derangements and stomach troubles  is that described in this letter:  Mrs. James Monteith, Saurin, Sim-  coe county, Ont., writes: "I have  used Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills  for liver complaint, biliousness and  terrible sick headaches, and have  found that they are more effective  than any treatment I ever tried.  They cleanse the system thoroughly,  remove the cause of pains and aches,  and make you feel fresh and strong  again. Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver  Pills are also excellent for stomach  troubles."  By means of their direct and specific action on the liver���������causing a  healthful flow of bile���������they regulate  and enliven the action of the bowels  and ensure good digestion in the intestines. At the same time they  stimulate the kidneys hi their work  of filtering poisons from the blood.

The word "barbecue" is derived from  the Spanish word "barbacao" and is a  native 'Haitian term for a wooden  framework supporting meat or fish to  be smoked or'dried over a fire. In  its popular sense It means a large social or political entertainment in the  open air at which sheep or oxen are  roasted whole and all the feasting is  on a most liberal scale. Georgia Is  probably the native home of the barbecue and is called the Barbecue State.  Who prepared the first barbecue is unknown. Deer, bear and other game  constituted the meat roasted in the  barbecues of fifty years ago.

Harris, Government Inspector of Elevators of  Hamilton, Ont.  From the Star, Dundas, Ont.  We were much pleased to see Mr.  S.-Harris,-the well known Government  insnectat of elevetors of Hamilton, in  Dundas the other day, greatly improved in health and appearance since  the last time we.met. him- As is  known to many of the Star readers,  Mr. Harris has recovered from a long  and severe 1 illness, and is now quite  able to attend his usud. duties. From  this long illness many predicted Mr.  Harris would never recover, and the  fact that he is once more able to go  around very nearly as spry as he did  before he was attacked, is little less  than marvellous to them.  In reply to our reporter, Mr. Har-  Til~relat������d-the-early-stages---of~the-at-  tack and subsequent sufferings which  he experienced, and while he did not  court publicity, decided that in   the  public  interest  he  would  relate  the  circumstances of this wonderful cure.  About fourteen months ago Mr. Harris woke up one morning with a stiff  neck; try as he would, and after applying all  the  remedies    externally  that he could hear or   think   of,   he  was unable to get rid of it.   The stiffness moved,,to the spine and shoulders, then to his hips, until it made  almost a cripple of him, and it   was  with extreme difficulty that he could  get out of bed at all.   As for walking  it was out of the question with him.  The attack became so bad   that he  was unable to put on either his coat,-  vest or hat.   From time to time he  called in various medical men, none,  of whom were able t_ give him much  relief.   It was almost impossible for  him to raise his feet from the floor,  and all pronounced his a severe case  of muscular rheumatism, giving him  little encouragement   as to his ultimate recovery.   However, one medical  gentleman finally   recommended   the  baths, and as a last resort Mr. Harris decided to follow his advice, and  went to Mount Clemens, Mich.   As  is customary with all patients,   Mr.  Harris had    to undergo a thorough  examination in order to determine if  the system ean stand   this rigorous  treatment. After several examinations  had been made   as to Mr.   Harris'  condition, the physicians there finally  decided   that he   was not   suffering  from muscular rheumatism at all, but  that his ailment was of the nerves,  nnd told him that   the bnths would  do him little or no good; that ho required altogether different treatment,  Mr. Harris   placed   himself in   the  bands of one of the physicians there,  and whnt   seemed quite   strange to  him, they did nothing for him but  administer medicine in the shape of  pills,   Shortly   lifter ho   commenced  this     treatment     ho     began     to  improve      perceptibly,      and      his  npputite     greatly     improved,      He  began to walk around slowly at first,  but soon was ablo to get around more  Minn ho could for a year provious, He  was able to put on his coat and vest,  mid began to feel like his former self.

Old-  fashioned styles vie with new,  exquisite bits, with new beauties and  new uses for semi-precious stones discovered every little while.  Necklaces lead in popularity, every  kind, from the many versions of "festoon necklaces" to barbaric-looking  things of heavy beads* otsmmber, and  even of jet, being worn. Some, as quaint  as can be, are made of garnets, the  stones grouped to form flowers' or stars  and swung from fine little chains.  Silver collars, made to fit high about  the throat, are moulded in Oriental designs, and show curiously carved stones  set in by way of decoration. And slim  gold chains have pendants, delicately  enameled, from which dangles a single  jewel, shaped like a tear-drop���������the sort  of pendant that Is called "la Valliere"  after the beautiful woman who, during  the time of Louis XIV, for a little while  qUeened It over the gay French court.  Amber beads are the greatest innovation, In spite of the fact that Paris  has been enthusing so heartily over  amber all spring. The surprise is not  so much in the use of amber as in the  size of tho beads best liked, for they  are as big as long white grapes, and  besides the clear kind there are beads  which are quite opaque, with milky  streaks shot through,  An occasional necklace looks as though  It might have been dug up from the  ruins of old palaces, bo perfectly has  the old style been repeated; while in another the graceful, swirling lines of art  Douvean may be apparent-a couple of  mermaids clasping hands about a great  pearl, for Instance, or an orchid enameled In a pale iridescence, with an opal  {'hlch glows and deepens in the very  cart of it,  ColIarJoss blouses have brought about  certain necklace styles, as inevitably  as short sleeves have accomplished a  swoplng re*.

Bangle bracelets are oftenest worn,  varying In width from wide, fiat bands  (perhaps delicately etched, perhaps per*  feotly plain, perhaps finished with that  queer greenish tinge which Is always so  distinctive) to some no thicker than a  wedding ring, Copies of some old styles  ���������how horseshoes, the ends left open; or  New  Necklace  Styles  Prwfihr  Oulty  _ ike  blouse  bars, apparently crude and unfinished,  which have been bent to form a circle,  but an incomplete one.

The whole secret nat~.  urally is to have the Joining as nearly  as possible invisible. Hard, russ������J}  seams, especially in "transparent, yoke**  and collars, are inexcusable, thought  seen all too often.  The sewing line of a lace joining:  should be irregular rather than straight,.,  as it is thus much less noticeable^ Always cut around prominent, figures *n-^  stead of through them.and lap one seairn  ov<rr the other. Then, with very Cms  cotton and needle, overhand the overlapping edge to the lace beneath with.  very tiny stitches. Any two threads .jf;,  the lace that lie over each other should'  be whipped together, while the figures.  Which nave not been cut must be worked around. Trim away the raw edges  close to the overhanding on both side*  Always be careful, In joining lace, to  match the figures. Sometimes, where it  is impossible to do this throughout the  entire length of a seam, small flgrures-  may be cut out and appliqued on top  of the joining.  Cluny lace can, be easily pieced by  matching the design perfectly and sewing the bars that match closely together. Cut away all the superfluous  pieces! overhand the sewed bar, andS,  neatly finish all raw edges.  Join net or Valenciennes laces by sewing around the outline of a figure or-  flower, and overhand together the corresponding bars in the mesh. A corner  may be mitred by folding over the fulness and basting on the folded line..'  Closely cut away the double corner and:  overcast the raw edge.  If lace is to be joined in an ordinary  seam which is not necessary to be Invisible, the under edges should be cut  off' almost to the stitching and buttonholed together. This will prevent pulling out, an' at the same time be a neat  finish.  The Joy of Detail'!
