Two years pas.=  quickly, particularly  at  school,  and' to  Maddy   Clyde,,
talking  with -her   companions   of  the
coming "holidays,   it,   seemed   hardly
^possible  that two   whole  years   were
gone f.ince the eventful vacation when
Dr.  Holbrook had   so startled  her by
offering   lier   his   hand.     He   was   in
Europe still, and ''another, name than
„   his  was on   the   little  office in  Airs
Conner's   yaid.    To   Maddy   he   now
wrote   frequently;   friendly,    familiar
letters, such as arbrother might, write,
never  referring to   the .past,  but tell-'
ing   her  whatever   he  thought   would
interest and  please her.   Occasionally
at   first, 'and   moie   frequently '-aftei-
•ward,   he  spoke   of   Margaret   Alhei-
stone,, Lucy's younger sister,  a   bril-
' liant, ' beautiful   pirl     who ..reminded"
him, he said. o( Maddy, only she was
saucier, and  moie  of a tease; not'at
"   all like Lucy, whom he described as
eometliing    perfectly'   angelic.       Hor
twenty-fifth   butiirlay   found   her,  on
a sick-bed, wilh"Dr. ,IIolbiook in at-
,. tendance,   and   1 his   w,as  /the   reason
'   given why the marriage between lier-
''   self   and   Guy   was     again   deferred.
, There had been many weeks of pain,
succeeded by ,long,  weary months of
languor,-*and during all this time the
doctor had been with her as the family physician, while Maigaret also had
been  constantly  in   attendance.    Hut
, Lucy   was 'much    better   noiv.^    She
could sit up all day, and even „walk(|
a little distance, assisted by, the doctor  and   Margaret,   whose   name   had
come   to   be   almost,   as   familiar   to
Maddy   as .was   that, of   Lucy.     And
Maddy,    in  .thinking    of . Margaret,.
sometimes wondeied "if " but riev-
, er went any farther ,than  that.    Neither did she-ask-Guy a word about
her, though she knew he  must, have
reeen  her;    She did   not'say much to [
last,   n .iTngTrt *ne, 'wirnour one"pa"rt-
ing  word  for lier.'  .    ,
The feeling that perhaps she had
been guilty of neglect was the bitterest of all, and Maddy wept on, unmindful of Guv's .attempts to soothe
and quiet her. At Inst, as she
heard a clock in' the adjoining room
strike eight, she started up. exclaiming, "'I have stayed too long. I must
go 'how. Is, 'there any conveyance
here?"    - <
"But, Maddy," Guy rejoined, "you
cannot go to-night. The roads between here and Honedale are one unbroken snowbank. It would take
hours'to break through ; .besides, you
are too tired. You need rest, and
must come with me to Aikenside,
where you are expected, for'when I
found how late the train would be, I
sent back word to have your room
and tho parlors warmed, and >a nice
hot'supper to be ready 'for us. You'll
surely go with me, if I,think best."
* Guy's manner was more like a 'lover than a friend, but Maddy was in'
no state to remark it. She only felt-
an intense 'desire to go home, and
turning a deaf ear to all he could
urge, replied: ' J   j      ,    ,   tV> '  .
"you don't know how "dear grand-*
ma is to me, or you would  not ask
me to stay.    She's all' the  mother I
ever  knew,   and  I  must go.  r. Would
you  stay  if  the one  you loved  best,
was dying?" "-*    "    "'
"But the one I love best is not dying, so I can reason clearly,'Maddy."
Here* Guv,  checked   himself,   and
'     , - .
listened while Maddy, asked .again it
there was no conveyance there as
usual. i
"None but mine," said'Guy, while
"Maddy continued faintly:
"And you aie afraid it will ,kill„
your horses?" , "
'/No, it would /only fatigue' them
greatly; it's for you I fear. You've
borne enough to-day." ' , -  ^
"Then,  Mr.  Remington,  oh,  please^
ing-r'-TTJa'Twri snort-fen It Brrmne-i ^
"Then I shall be paid for Eoinf.*"
was Guy's response, as he drew still
more .closely around ber tlie fancy
buffalo vobe.
The roads, though badly drifted in
some places, were not as had as Guy
had   feared,   and   the   strong   horses
kept steadily on; while Maddy, growing  more  and  more iatigued,  at last
fell away to sleep, and ceased to answer Guy.   For a time he watched her
drooping   head;     and , then   carefully
drawing it to him! made it rest upon
his shoulder, while he .wound his arm
around her slight figure, and so supported her.    lie knew she was sleeping quietlv, ,by her gentle breathings;
and   once* or   tw-ice   he   involuntarily
passed his hand caressingly over hei
soft,  round  cheek,  feeling the  blood
tingle to his finger tips as he thought
of  his  position   there;    with    Maddy
Clyde  sleeping  in  his   arms.     What
would Lucy say, could  she see him?
And the doctor, with his strict  ideas
of right and wrong, would he object?
Guy   did   not   know,   and,   with   hi--
usual independence, he did not care.
At  least,  he said  to himself he did
not care; and so, banishing both the
doctor and   Lucy  from   his 'mind,  he
abandoned   himself  to  tlie happiness'
of   the   moment—a  singular   kind   of
happiness,   inasmuch     as   it   merely
consisted    in   the   fact   that   Maddy
Clyde's young head was pillowed  on
his   bosom,   and, that,   , by   bending
down, he could feel her sweet breath
on his face.  Occasionally there flitted
cross   Guy's   mind   a   vague,,, uneasy
r*onsciousness°tliat thoueh the act was

On this account, Maddy did not look-
forward to the' coming vacation as
joyfully as she would otherwise have
.done.    Still,  it,was   always  pleasant
"John , will go if. I bid him. But
you,<Maddv, if 1 thought it was safe."
' "It is. Oh, let" me go," and Maddy erasped'"both his hands beseechingly,      c r ' .   ,

"but'mabby that's nothin' to please

"If we only had runners now, instead of wheels, John," Guy said, after a moment's reflection. "Drive back,

change the carriage for a covered
sleigh. Leave thp grays at home and
drive a pair of farm horses. They

"Yes, ves. I know." and tying, his
muffler about his throat, John started off through,thc storm, his mind a
confused medley .of ideas, the mam
points of which were, bottles of wine,
snow shovels, and the fact that his^
master was either crazy or in love.
Meanwhile, with the prospect _ oJ
going home, Maddy had grown quiet,
and did not refuse, the temporary
supper of buttered toast, muffins,
steak, and hot coffee, which Guy ordered from the small hotel just m
the rear of the depot.   Tired,, nervous,
d almost helpless, she allowed Guy
peeled to do, when a servant entered
the room, "and glancing over the group
of girls; .singled Maddy out,i saying,
as rhe* placed an unsealed envelope in
her hand, "A telegram. for Miss

There was   a  blur , "before1 Maddy's r
eyes, so that at first she 'could not spe
clearly,   and   Jessie,   climbing  on  th'e
-bench beside her, read aloud:
"Your grandmother is dyine.  Come

"Guy   Remington."
It was impossible to go that afternoon, but with 'the earliest dawn she
was up, and unmindful of the snow
'falling so rapidly, started on that sad
journey home. Tt wa= the first genuine * storm of the season, and it
seemed resolved on making amend?
for past neglect, sweeping in .furious
gusts against the windows, sifting
down in thick masses from the leaden
sky, and so impeding the progress
of the train that' the, chill wintry
night had,closed gloomily in ere the
Somerville station, was reached, and
-Maddy, weary and dispirited, stepped out upon the platform, glancing
anxiously around for the usual omnibus, which she had little hope would
be there on such a night. If not.

the burden of her thoughts for the

there himself. But Guy was there,
and it was his voice which first greet-'
ed her as she stood half-blinded by
the snow, unceitain^ what she must
'do next.
"Ah, Mr. .Remington. I didn't expect this. I am so glad, and how-
kind it was of you to wait ior me'"
she exclaimed, her -voice expressing
her delidit, and amply repaying the
voung man, who had not been very
patient or happy through the six long
hours   waiting   he   had   endured.
But he was both happy and patient now with Maddy's hand in his.
and pressing it very cently he led
'her into the ladies' room; then making her sit down before the fire, he
brushed her =nowy garments himself, and dashinv a few flakes from
her disordered ln.ii'. told her what
she so eager lv a**kod to know. Her
grandmotliei had had a paralytic
stroke, and thc only word she had
uttered since was "Maddy" Guy

Green had brought the news. She
was thf*re yet, he said, the storm having detained  her

filing her eyes wistfully on hun.

that Guy was faking them off, much

hand lay lightly upon his shoulder as
she  continued   her   questionings.
"She is not dead, you say; but do
you think—does anybody think shell
die?    Your telegram said   'dying.'"
..Maddy-..was not to be deceived, and
thinking it best, to be frank With her,
Guy told her that the physician, whom
he had taken pains to see on his way
to the depot, had said there was no
hope. Old age and an impaired constitution precluded the possibility of
recovery, but he trusted she might
live till  the young   lady   came.
"She| muslA-she' will! Oh, grandma, why did I ever leave her?" and
burying her face in her hands Maddy
cried passionately. while ihe lapt
three years of her life passed in rapid
review before hor mind—years which
ehe had spent in luxurious ease,
1 saving 'her grandmother to toil in
the. hurn>)le^ wjige, _ajid . die. fit ..ths
There was a feeling of delicious rest
in being cared for thus, and.but fot
the dvirig one at Honedale she would
have "enjoyed it vastly. As it was.
though, she never for a moment for-
eot her grandmother. She did forget in a measure, her anxiety, and
was able to think how kind, how exceedingly kind Guy was. He was like
what he used to be. she thought, only
kinder, and thin'-ing it was because
she was in trouble, she accepted a I
his little attentions willingly, feeling how pleasant it was to have him
there, and thinking once with a half-
shudder of the long, cold ride before
her, when Guv would no longer be
present, and also of the dreary home
where death miuht possibly be a guest
ere she could reach it
It was after nine ere John appeared,
his crisp wool powdered with snow
which clung to his outer garments,
and  literally  covered  his  cap.
" 'Twas mighty deep," he said,
bowing to Maddy. "and the wind was
getting colder, "Twas a hard time
Miss Clyde would have, and hadn't
she better wait?"
No,   Maddy   could   not    wait,   and
standing up she suffered Guy to wrap
.her cloak about her, and fasten more
securely   the   long,   warm   scarf   she
wore   around   her   neck. >f
"Drive close to the platform, ' he
said to John, and the covered sleigh
was soon brought to the point designated. "Now then, Maddy, I won't
let you run the risk of covering your
feet with snow. I shall carry you
myself," Guy said, and ere Maddy was
fully aware "of his intentions, he was
bearing   her   to   the   sleigh.
Very carefully he drew the soft,
warm robe about her, shielding her
'.as- well-aa ■'he could from the cold;
then pulling his own fur collar about
his ears, lie sprang in beside her, and,
closing the door behind him, bade
John drive on.
"But, Mr. Remington," Maddy exclaimed in much surprise, "surely
you are not. going too? You must not.
Tt is asking too much. It is rnore
than I expected.    Please don't go."
"Would you rather I should not—-
that is, aside from any inconvenience
it mav be to me—would you rather go
alone?" Guy asked, and Maddy replied:
"Oh, no. I was dreading the lojig

under the,circumstances, well enough,
the  feelings 'whicli7'prompted it were,
not such as either the doctor or Lucy
would  approve.     But  they   were  far
away; they would never1 know unless
he told them, as he probably should,
of'this   ride   on   that   wintry  night;
this   ride,r which   seemed   to   him - so
short  that  he  scarcely   believed    his'
senses  when,    without    once   having,
been overturned or called upon to use
the shovels so thoughtfully provided^
the carriage suddenly came to a halt,
and he knew by the dim .light shining through the low window that.the
red  cottage  was .reached.
Grandma Markham was dying, but
she knew Maddy, and thec palsied lips
worked painfully as she attempted to
utter the loved name; while her ..wasted face lighted up with eager joy as
Maddy's arms were twined about her
neck, and she felt Maddy's kisses on
her cheek and. brow.   [Could she not
speak? .Would she never speak again?
Maddy .asked   despairingly,   and'her
grandfather    replied:   '"Never,!, most
likely.    The   only   thing   shlj's , said',
since the shock was to call your name.
She's  missed  you  despatly, this,^winter  back,  more   than   ever - befoTe,   I
think.    So have we all, but we would
not.send for you—Mr.'Guy said you
was learning so fast."       , ' ,    ,
"Oh, grandpa, why didn't you? T
would have come so willingly." and
for an instant Maddy's eyes flashed reproachfully upon the recreant Guy,-
standing aloof from*the' little group
gathered about, the ''' bed,-,'his ' arms
folded together,' and' a moody-- look
upon   his  face. ,   ■ ^' ''
He was Thinking of what"" had not
yet entered Maddy's mind, thinking
of the'future—Maddy's future; .wlien
the'.-aged form .upon 'the bed should,
be gone, and the two comparatively
helpless' men" be  left   alone.
"Bpt it shall  not be.    The sacrifice
is   far   too  great.   A   can   prevent'  it.
and 1  will," he muttered to "himself,
.as he turned tb watch the gray dawn
breaking  in 5'the ( east:,    T •  \ '"  * .
Guy, was a.puzzle to thimself.* "He
would not admit that'durintf'the past
year his liking for Maddy Clyde had,
grow'n to be something stronger than •
mere friendship,,nor yet that his feelings toward Lucy had undergone.'a
change,'prompting hinvnot to go to
her when she was sick, and, not to
be as sorry as he ought that the mar-
riagfWwas_again.-rdefe.-rpd ,-^Luc.y had
no suspicion of the change.' and her
childlike trust in him was the anchor
which held him, still',true to her in
intentions at least, if not in reality.
He knew'from her letters'how much
she had learned to like Maddy Clyde,
and so, he argued, there was no harm
in his liking her* too. She was a
splendid girl, and it seemed a pity
that her lot should have been so humbly cast. This .was usually the drift
of" his thoughts in connection with
her, and now. as he stood there in
that cottage. Maddy's home, they recurred to him with tenfold intensity,
for well he foresaw that a struggle
was before him if he rescued Maddy,
as he meant to do, from her approaching fate.
No-such "thoughts, however, intruded themselves'on Maddy's mind. She
did not look away from the present,
except it were at the past, in which
she feared she had erred by leaving
fier grandmother too much alone. But
to -her passionate appeals for forgiveness, if she ever had neglected the
dying one, there can\e back only loving looks and mute caresses, the aged
hand smoothing lovingly the bowed
head, or pressing fondly the girlish
cheeks where Guy's hand had been.
With the coming of daylight, however,
there was a change; and Maddy, listening intently, heard w-hat sounded
like her name. The tired tongue was
loosed for a little, and in tones scarcely articulate, the disciple who for
long years had served her Heavenly
Father faithfully, bore testimony to
the blessed truth that God's promises
to those who lo^e Hi in are not mere
promises-—that He will go with them
through the river of death, disarming
the fainting poul of every fear, and
making the dving bed the very gale
of heaven. This tribute to the Saviour was her first thought, while the
second was a blessing for her darling, a charge to seek the narrow way
now in Iife'« early morning Disjointed sentences they were, b'i< Maddy
understood them all, treasuring up
everv v ord evrni lo the last, the words
fhe farthest apart and most painfully
uttered. "You—will—caie—and—comfort "
She did not =ay whom, but Maddy
knew whom she meant- and without
then reah'/ing the maenitude of the
act, virtually aeeeptfd the burden
from which Guy was so anxious to
save her.

thorough trial. Zam-Buk-subdues the
pain, allays the inflammation and enables rest and comfort to 'come to
the worn-out sufferer.
Mrs. E. Box-all of 75 Scott St., St.
Thomas, .Out., writes: "I consider it
my duty to wiile of the benefits derived from using Zam-Buk. For some
months I was a constant sufferer from
bleeding piles. I had used a great'
many o-ntments but got no relief until I had tried Zam-Buk. It cured me
and I have had no, return- of the
trouble. Since my cure,'I have'advised others cuffering with "a similar
complaint to use Zam-Buk, and ...in
each instance have heard satisfactory
icporfs." V * '       '    m,,
Zam-Buk also cures cuts, burns,
Scalds, ulcers,, ringworm, itch, barbel's rash, blood*'poison, bad leg,
salt riheum, abrasions, abscesses' and
all skin injuries and diseases. Of all

An amiTslng s£ary-ls;tSlJ-'or£he waj
the Cullinan diamond—the birthday
gift of the Transvaal to "King Edward
—was sent to England. It was felt
that there was a certain amount of
danger In the railroad journey from
Johannesburg to Cape Town. Two
stalwart railway detectives, an hour
or two before the mall started from
the gold reef city, were ordered to
travel with It on special duty. They
were told to he well armed, and at thp
last moment they were Intrusted with
a small scaled package, which they
were directed not to lose sight of until
they deposited it In the strong room
of the liner. Learning lhat it was
the great diamond, fhe two men had
an anxious journey. Some months
later the truth became known, by tbe
Transvaal postmaster general's report,
that the diamond had really gone in
the mail as an ordinarily registered
package. The detectives' mission was
6iinply an elaborate piece of deception

.Probably In no other department sartorial ls there exhibited so-much indifference to hygienic, considerations
as in the overcoat The greatest fallacy of all "perhaps In regard to tho
choice of,an overcoat Is that the terms
"weight" and "warmth" are synonymous. As, a matter of fact, they are
nearly always- diametrically opposed.
Moreover, the heavy overcoat Is a tax
on the resources of the organism and
destroys the economy which a good
Insulating cloth Is intended to secure.

The i position of the nautch girl is  no longer what it was in the Indian'  social system. Not merely Europeans,  but-some of the .best among the ns>  fives, feel that in view of the grad-  -ual raising of the tone of society, the  evils associated with her profession  should cease to enjoy the toleration  accorded to them in the past.*  This view, however, is by no means  'universal, and the conflict of opinion  is strikingly illustrated by tlie experience of Gauhar Jan, a well-known  nautch girl of Calcutta, and one of  the finest native singers in India.  A rich Marwari family of Bombay  recently engaged her to perform at a  marriage ceremony, paying her a fee  of Us 15,000 ($5,000). Later she visited  tlie Lady North cote Hindu Orphanage, and consented to sing in its aid  gratis in the town hall. The citizens  of Bombay, male and female, flocked  in large numbers to listen to her, an  the gramophone has made her name a  household word in India. The handsome sum of $2,000 was collected on  the spot for the orphanage. At the  close of the assembly Hon. Sir M.  Perozeshah Mehta pinned a medal on  her breast.  Hearing this, Mr. Justice Chandra-  varkar of Bombay, a well-known social reformer and Brahmin leader,  ceased his connection with thc managing committee. A hot newspaper  discussion hab followed. Mr. Tilak  and others have written in defence of  Sir M.' Mehta, while other correspondents are against him.

Among the rains of the old city of  Bagdad, to the left of the Tigris,  stands a large square brick structure  in which.the Moslem keepers solemn  ly, assert the body of Joshua is bur  ied. It is useless to test their state  inents by the . apparent* age of the  building, for the small square brickb  of its walls, gathered from the ruins  of the Aiabic period, may indicate  only a reconstruction. The present  building ia not ancient, Tlie entrance,  protected by a portico, leads into a  large open court, which is surrounded by chambers. ���     > <���  At the further end of the court, occupying the entire rear of,the build-^  ing, is the shrine, a spacious, window-'  less  chambr-r,   lighted    only   by   the'  doorway and entirely destitute of fur  niture save for the coarse reed mats  which cover the brick floor.    Its centre  ia capped  by  a large dome,  and,  the  walls  have   recently  beerr whitewashed,   yet   in   places- beneath   the  thin white coat appear the more ancient Hebrew inscriptions which were  once the interior decorations.  The tomb beneath the centre of the  dome is protected by a large rectangular paneled case of dark wood, and,  excepting in one place, where a panel  m missing, it is invisible. At the head  ���of, the case' are , two tin projections,  about, which are tied a number of  strings ,or'nigs torn ��� from the gar  rnents of the visiting pilgrims. - One  day.' while 1 was standing at the head  of the sacr:d tomb, a young Moslem  woman entered, and with eyes wet  with weeping she tore 'a, small rag  from her garment and^tiedit a'bout  one" ol the projections, while she mumbled a prayer to God that before a  year hence, when she should come to  untie the rag, she might present her  husband with ar.child.  Tt was but a repetition of the picture ol Hannah, the,mother oi Samuel, while'she was at the'temple we.*p ,,  ing and praying before Eli the priest.  'in the shrine- of tbe 'east tlu picture is still'common. Before'the Government, buildingi. at Bagdad stands  a *,big .cannon, which the ^ignorant  Arab, women, aware of its tre'mendous-  power, believe can answer prayer.

They were im-<  prisoned'for attempting to*bury a Jew  at-the shrine' of the great prophet.'  THey were finally released upon the,  payment of large sums of money, but'  the care of*the tomb was takeri' from  them.

Our  One., Scientifio Theory of. How  '*" . ,' ,. Planet May Perish. -(1  'A scientific forecast of how the end  of, the-world might, come, has been  given by Professor Bllard Gore.1 His  theory Is tha't final cataclysm may possibly be the result of a collision ,between the sun and some dark, dead,  ierelict planet."  Although astronomers have no actual proof that such dead suns exist,  without life or light and careering  about ln space, they believe it quite  possible. The result of a collision between the sun and a dark planet  would be that the former's light and  heat would be, enormously increased  and the earth Instantly destroyed by  combustion.  Professor Gore tells how we should  be warned of our approaching doom.  "When about 15,000,000 miles from  the sun, the dark body would begin to  shine by reflected light In about ten  years It would have become so bright  . , _     ,        .   ���   ,��� ��� i as to be visible to the naked eye.

"Parson" is from the Latin '���persona," a person, nnd the parsou ls the  persona ecclcsUic. or representative, of  the church. The forms parson and  person bear tbe same relation to each  other as dark and clerk. From being  pronounced parson the word has come  to be so written. Blackstone ln his  "Commentaries" says:  ,"0c is called 'parson' (persona) because by bis'person the church, which  Is an invisible bddy, is- represented,  and he is himself a body corporate lii  order to protect and defend the rights  of tbe church w:hich be represents."  "To parse a sentence" is, to reisolve If  Into1 its grammatical parts, and the  verb is declared to have arisen from  the Interrogation "Pars?" ���that is,  "Quae pars oration's,?"
