C  ��������� THE PINK KIMONO. 1  ��������� A Blunder That Was Happily ���������  Righted. ;  By IZOLA FORRESTER.  it lay on the massive sctteo In tlio  hnll, an Innocent looking parcel, flnt  and somewhat square. Three of Warwick's letters lay on lop of It. neatly, ���������  as tbo hall boy laid placed tlicm; also  bis weekly pnper from liome.  Warwick glanced nt the letters,  ngaln at tho clock, tossed off his hat,  oont and gloves and carried tlio wholo  lot, parcel, letters and pnper, Into Uie  comfortable study aud dropped Into a  deep chair.  Thero was aa hour before tho crowd  would arrive. Everything was ready,  '.tho spread would lie sent up at S:30  sharp. Ho hoped Stanton would be  able to get awny. He liked Stanton.  Tho boy needed a good friendly grip  just now. Ho knew himself what It  was to bo in Now York a stranger,  Money could not glvo ouo the password that admitted ono to tho Inside of  things, the "getting next to the ituoss  of all," ns Stanton said. And if the  right path did not open aud ono happened to bo lonely there were others  wide and welcoming,   Warwick knew.  The boy was young and clever. The  only thing that ailed him was too  much money and tho confidence he  had therein. He was n bit handy with  it all���������<ho whirl and the swing and-tho  chance for big success. Warwick had  kept an eye on him for weeks, measuring and judging him, and now he  wns satisfied.. All flie boy needed were  direction and a cool hand checking  him uow and theu, aud he would win  out.  Warwick opened the weekly paper  from home aud smiled to himself at  lbe familiar beading, tbe Weekly Visitor. Ever since ho could remember  1ho Weekly Visitor had visited regularly at the quiet, big gray house that  crowned Warwick's bill, up In Hills-  boro, N. II. Aud Stanton was from  the country, too, somo placo ont west,  out in Nebraska. Ho wondered If he  had a weekly paper, loo, t-������ keep him  1u touch with the old world and the  ethics and standards of somclhiug besides New York. /  The letters were unimportant. He  took up the parcel and slipped off tbo  oord. Laundry probably. He had not  ordered anything.  "The papeT'fellTo thefioorrand he sat  slaring at the thing ln his hands. It  was a pink, delicate, shimmering  silken thing. He stood up and shook  it out lo ita full length. IL reached lo  the floor. It was not a bath robe. It  could not possibly be n smoking jacket.  It was a woman's garment, unmistakably.  The texture was tbo softest Japanese  crape, the silk interwoven around the  ���������sleeves aud neck In a border of golden  butterflies. There wns no mark on it  nor on the paper. Warwick looked  carefully.  The doorbell buzzed imperatively,  once, twice and a long one. That was  Billy Trainor's ring. Warwick hesitated, east the pink Bilk thing behind  bim on tho chair and opened the door.  Hilly stepped in smilingly, Interrogatively looked about the room und spied  tbe pink silk tblu$  "Ror," be said reproachfully. "Why,  Itcx!"  ���������"It wns loft here by mistake," said  Warwick hastily. "The hall boy did  It. What Is it?"  Billy lifted It by the shoulders and  beamed with the appreciative eyo of  a connoisseur.  "It's n kimono, the real Imported article, No bargain sale. Who's the lucky  ladyV  Tho doorbell buzzed again. Warwick took tho klmouo with deliberate  forethought, went to Iho wardrobe lo  his dressing room and concealed It  therein.  "It's Stanton," Billy announced, "and  (he rest."      ; ,.,  Warwick played tho host with more  Inner discomfort thau over beforo In  IiIh llfo. It wns not tho moro fact ot  tho mistnko that troubled hltn nor that  ho minded the boys knowing of It, but  ho didn't want to seo that particular  (what bad Billy called ItV) Iclmnno  handled and laughed about and Hpocu-  luted over. Somewhere thero imi.it bo  (ho girl who wanted (hat kimono, He  hoped alio wiih a brunette, rink was  bent for brunettes, Not too much of n  tu'iinetto, pcrhups wllh bluo eyea or  gray���������yen, gray-a gray eyo or so,  Billy was pushing back tho chairs  and liiborols for tho spread, Stanton  was Hinging at (ho piano, Out in tho  kitchenette Vales unci Hogers and tho  Dan fort lis wero rummaging for dlahes  and knives nnd forks. Big Do Venn  wan up on (lie divan, wllh Its rod Turkish cover draped picturesquely about  him, reclllng some original poetry.  "Box, don't you own n decent table-  iloiii, you beggar;" called Yates.  Warwick mnokcrt without.replying.  Through tho hnzo lie raw tho brunette  ���������girl wllh .Hn? pink kimono about her  mulling delkdously like a geisha-no,  hu djdn'i   Nviuvi,  liv,   tu be it  ������;uhWii-  Rinlllng, woll, JiiRt nu n girl Rbould  Dinllo when uho luul tho right ono to  Krollo at,  RU11I011 left tho plnno and camo  over,  "Say, you're n prlnro (o get mo hero  loiilgiit," ho inld, "1 didn't I;now yon  had a placo Itko (hli, Benin hotels,  doesn't It?

"Honeymoon?" Warwick's eyes lighted with uuiusem'ent. He had not  dreamed the boy had gone so far.  "No. uot as bad as that." Stanton  hesitated, glancing at the joyous, riotous crowd about Iho piano. It's my  sister. Mother's sent her on to tnke  care of mo until she can come herself.  I guess they didn't get very good accounts of their Iltllo boy In Manhattan. But I wrote homo and told tbem  about/yon nnd what sort, of a chap  you wore nnd how yon had taken mo  under your wing, and 1 promised lo  cut out the hotel nud���������well, a wholo  lot ot Ihlugs mother didn't like Iho  flavor of, and today"--  "Whoopee!" yelled Yates from the  dressing room. "I've found Warry's  tablecloth.   It's a dream!"  Warwick Bat up and dropped hla  cigarette. Waltzing dizzily, radiantly,  wickedly out from the dressing room  came Yates, arrayed in tho pink silk  kimono. There was a sllonco, then a  long*drawn bowl of delight from lhe  crowd. They caught Yates In their  arms, and swept him up on the center  table. Thoy handed him n Samoan  fan of dyed plumes nnd a Mexican  peaked hot. Trainor at tho piano  crashed into the "San Toy" over!uro.  And suddenly Warwick stood up.  whilo and mad, mad clear through  Ihat they should dare even In jest to  touch anything that belonged lo tha  dear, unknown girl, the brunette with  tho gray eyes.  "Tako that off!" be said.  Tho music stopped short, but not  from his words. Kvery face in tho  crowd .was turned toward tbo door (if  the hall, and Yates looked helpless and  miserable. Warwick turned, too. and  held his breath. Sho stood in tho  doorway, ono hand lining aside the  heavy drapery- Behind her was  George, tho colored hall boy. Her  face looked startled, and yot thero  was amusement, too, in tho wide gray  eyes, as they glanced from faco to  face and finally rested ou Yates.  "There is some mistake.. 1 think."  she' said gently. "George tells me a  parcel of mine was left here-touight.  I havo only moved here today, and  he mado n mistake. I think that gentleman has on my kimouo."  Wretched, limp nnd apologetic. Yates  was -assisted from the lable and divested of the pink silk gown.  "I am sorry to spoil your amusement"���������sho stopped and turned her  head toward Warwick as the host,  when all at once her eyes met Stan-  "Marjorle!"' lie gasped. "Marjorle,  you blessed kid!"  SPECIFIC HEAT EXPLAINED.  Capacity For Heat Varies In tha Different Metals.  Tho specific heat of the body ls sometimes spoken of na capacity for beat,  and hero, Uo It remembered, that the  unit of heat is such a quantity as will  raiso the temperature of one pound of  pure distilled water from 00 to 40 do-  grees F. This is ono British thermal  unit or one B. T. U. Tho conception  of heat is entirely different from that  of temperature, as is often shown ln a  ���������simple laboratory experiment. A cake  of iiecswax about one-half Inch thick  is plnced in a horizontal position a  short distance nbovo Uie top of a table.,  A number of metal balls nre Immersed  ^in n liquid having, say, i\ high temperature. All the balls soon have the  same temperature ns tho liquid, and  each of the balls is at the same temperature as all the others.  If those balls with equal temperatures be placed on tho cake of wax  they will all begin lo melt the war  and sink Into the cake as they part  with their heat, but the rate and depth  of penetration into Iho cake will vary.  For example, under these circumstances an iron ball will moll: Its wny  through llio wax lirst. It will be followed by a copper ball of equal size.  A tin ball will probably just show on  the underside of tho wax, while a load  ball and a bismuth ball may not -be  ablo to do more thau sink half tlieir  diameter Into tho wax.  This experiment proves that while  the temperature of all the balls was  equal, the amount of beat or the.number of British thermal units possessed  by each varied considerably. The Iron  ball contained the greatest number of  B. T. TJ. and the bismuth least. At  the close of tho experiment lhe temperatures of Iho balls would all bo  different, but the capacity for heat of  each Is a property of tlio metal itself,  nnd each maintained its own specific  heat when all were at. the same temperature.  Of all bodies, water has the greatest  specific heat, and consequently it takes  a greater number of thermal units  to raise its temperature through njiy  given number of degrees. Water heals  comparatively slowly and cools comparatively slowly. Mercury and platinum heat rapidly, but they also ������00!  quickly.���������Bail-way and Locomotive Kit-  glnecring.  LABOR  SAVING  DEVICE.  Silently and .discreetly the crowd  averted its composite face while Stanton kissed Marjorle ecstatically. Warwick looked unhappy.

One of the most Interesting railway  enterprises completed ln Europe within the last years Is the Uao that hae  been recently opened across tho Scan-  dinavlan peninsula for tho purposo of  providing direct communication. .between the city of Bergen, ou the Atlantic seaboard, and Christians, tho capital of Norway. In constructing the  lino great natural difficulties had to be  and wero successfully overcome. The  main difficulty was to find an easy pas-  sago through the mountains of the  Dovrefjeld range. Tbe district la  question Ib tho most mountainous la  Norway, with abort, narrow valleys,  from which tho mountains rise .abruptly, If not perpendicularly, to"groat  heights. The fiords penelrato far Into  the country, and nearly all tho valleys forming the natural ouUIues* for  tho railway scheme aro "traversed by,  large Htreams.  Altogether there nre no less than 181  tunnels on tho line, representing a total length of about twenty-four miles."  The line crosses fourteen bridges. The  constructional work entailed tho excavation of nearly 30,000,000 cubic feet  of earth and '28,000.000 cubic feet of  rock on- the high mountain section,  while tho consumption of dynamite  ran (0 1,800,000 pounds.' Thoro nre  fifty-five stations'between Iho two (er-  minal points. Of tho fourteen bridges,  three nro In masonry, one having a  span of 1,10 .foot and another being  GCO feet ln length, with eight seventy-  foot spans. Owing to the exposed nature ot thelinein the upper sections"  above the timber line extensive fencing as a defense against drifting snow*  was necessary beside tlie track, these  screens bolng almost continuous for  sixty miles between Mjolfjeld and  C.jeilo. Tlio lino passes through a  wilder stretch of country than any  other European railway. The winter  lasts nine months and sometimes long-"-  er; tho snowfall Is heavy and (be rainstorms- lertific, Willi a tremendous  downpour. The lino cost about $1~>,-  G00.O0O (Ovbulld, and the difficulties of  construction are'only equaled by those  experienced In keeping it open for  traffic. Three American rotary plows  are used iu winter, and in summer one  will always lie kept ready for service,  as ji heavy snow block in midsummer  is by ,no means 11 rare occurrence.  The line, however, has reduced the  timo of transit ��������� between Bergen and  Christlania from fifty-four to fourteen  hours, and'it Is an important highway for *trafh'e. ��������� Engineering Maga-  . a 21 n e. 1 ' T__ '_. ^_   tf��������� ���������  Marking Criminals With Wax.

Don't let tho nerves get exhausted. The risk is too great. Every  dose of Dr. Chaso's Nerve Food goes  to the formation of a certain amount  of pure, rich blood.

Etiquette for Murderers  The trials of self-confessed murderers who wish to bu arrested are related in   iho  Matin by  M.  Clement  Vautel.  Some time ago a man named Herges  was stabbed to death in the Place do  Malakon at Algiers. Three men wore  arrested on suspicion, but as' they  proved their innocence, were released,  and the matter was shelved.   A few  days ago, however, a-man"called at  the office of a "police commissary and  said to that official:-"My-name is  Matins Yvorra, 1 hilled Herges, and  this Is how 1 did it." The, commissuiy  listened to the man's confession' and  said:  retary  The secretary also listened to - tho i  man's confc-aslon, and after a little!  rpl'leclioii, said: ''Now look here; my j  good man, this is not (ho way to got j  arrested.

Mr. Edward Sonnies, "'solicitor,   ot  Essex Street, Strand, had a reputation  for shrewdness nnd worldly wisdom  which  hnd already carried him far  along Iho road of fortimr, and it was  IiIb flxod intention thoy should bear  hini to tho furthest goal of that pleasant road.   Thoro wero certain peoplo  who hinted that tho clover solicitor occasionally purimod methods which did  not err on tho sldo of over scrupulousness; but theso   .pooplo would ' liavn  ��������� boen totally una bio to convert their  hlntB into'assertions, or to provo tho  assertions when mado���������for   tho   fair  fame of Mr. Soames had never   been  smirched, and thoro was nothing   to  show that his practlco was not of- tho  most upright and guilctess description,  Ho wns' n fiharp lawyer; he prided  himself upon bolng one, Just   as ' ho  prided -.liimsolf upon a curt abruptness  of manner which had an overrawing  effect upon*some,ot his clients,   and,  Rfter all, sharpness was as'necessary  In his clients' Juterosts as in his own.  This reflection wis passing.through his  - mind on an April, morning when some  of the frngrn'nco   ot spring   had contrived to   penetrate evon    into   the  dreary Essex Street.office,   and   Mr.  Soames smiled pleasantly ns fleeting  memories of   his   own   phenomenal  success raced across his brain.Ho evon  caught himself humming a light and  airy tune as   his   glance   wandered  round his ofllce, which in itself was a  wholly uninspiring place.   Nothing in  its appearance suggested wealth or  luxury;  the. tablo had seen its best  days, tho carpet was threadbare, and  Ihe curtains', originally red, had faded  into an indeterminate brown.      The  -'wall-paper'was'drab In   colour   and  fearsome in' design, but the larger proportion of it was . rendered invisible  by a book-caso containing dusty   law  volumes, aud by rows of   black   tin  boxes bearing .iheir owner's names in  white paint.    No, there was' nothing  stimulating to the imagination in the  apartment, but air.   Soames   beamed  upon it as cheerfully as though it were  a fairy palace, whilst ho snfc down in  his revolving chair and drew" his morning's letters' towards him.   Even dur-  lng the reaflingjqt hisjiot particularly  stimulating" correspondence . lie   still"  smiled, and now and then hummed  that gay'little tune under his breath.  "Very curious," his reflections ran  'on; as ho sorted his lettors into those  his clerk could answer and those   to  which ho must attend himself.     "A  very curious coincidence, and���������If thero  is any truth in tho  ntory���������well-���������so  much the worse for Sir Mllos Hernesley���������and possibly���������so much tho bettor  for me,"  He hummed his tune more loudly,  nnd tho smile on his face deepened  only to die, away with lightning quickness ns a tap on tho door wns followed  by tho entrance.of his clerk.  "Yon can answer all these, Johnson,  ta, 1 hnvo indicated," Mr. Soames'snlit  in his usual curt accents.   " I am ox-  j.octing Sir Allies Hernesley at eleven-  thirty.

Tho old clork left, tho room, and a  moment later anothor tap heralded the  coming;of tho junior, clerk, ;I)cniB Tritton, who stood just within tho doorway  with tho nervous expression of a dog  who Is moro than half expectant of a  beating.    ���������   *,..���������:..

" There wero a good many queer  stories nbout Sir George's' non," he  said. "I fancy ho left, Mansntero fho-  best part of thirty years ago, and thoy  say ho novor camo back.

Tritton opened his lips to speak  again, but his master's face was so  unresponsive that ho dared not mako  the experiment, and with ,a rather  puzzled look on his own vacuous features, he went slowly hack to the  room in which ho and old Johnson  worked, together.  " I can't think what's happened to  the boss," ho said"to the old clerk;  "ho's been1 talking to me more.than  he over talked before, and asking me  no end of irrelevant questions."  '!

"Oh could somo fay the glftic gle us  To seo ourselves as others' see us."
