DRESSMAKING AND MILLINERY.  All  I. B. Hit h (I M  Department Store.  Exists Between Russia and Japan ��������� Russia Makes Counter  Proposals in Reply to Japanese  Demands  London, Jan. 0.���������Despite the semiofficial announcement thnt concessions  have been made by Russia in Uev reply  to the Japanese demands and that this  action will likely be sufficient to avert  war,   preparations are heing actively  completed by both sides for a conflict.  The  same  dispatches   which   bring  information   of  pacific  overtures  by  Rnssi, convey the intelligence not only  that the   Cz-ir's  reply   has  not  been  received nt Tokio, bur  that Russia is  mussing her fleet in   the Pacific  and  bending a force to Korea and that Japan has decided on doubling the armament dinpntched to the same  quarter.  The very fact that the Russian reply  to Japan has been transmitted through  V icercy   Alexieff  imparts  a   sinister  aspect to it,   as   the   Vicercy   has   all  along been regarded as eager for war.  The outlook is certainly  not   more  pencefu-* than it has been for the past  few days, and the counter-proposals of  Russia may lie regarded as little, more  than an artifice to gain time, the approach of her fast-hurrying reinfoice-  ments   from    Europe  making  delay  desirable.  Japan has already signified in the  most unequivocal manner that no  counter-proposals by Russia would be  considered, and it' she does not strike  promptly and effectively as soon as  Russia's note shall have been received,  it will be only that she may not occupy  the unenviable attitude of seemingvto  be thc aggressor.  nesdny and a goodly turn out will be  on hand to greet hiin.  H. A. Brown was elected the representative (2 years) to the Grand Lodge,  the nest convention will be held in  May in Grand Forks.  t  David  Ferguson Missing  In the Victoria Colonist on Tuesday  their appears an advertisement signed  by Chief of Police Lnngley offering.at  the  request    of  Andrew    Ferguson  $1,000 reward for any information that  will lead to the finding of David Ferguson, dead or alive.   Dave was nt the  Dominion hotel, Victoiiji, on Dec.  10,  last, since which time no knowledge  of   his whereabouts has   reached his  brothers   who   reside'   in     Victoria.  There was   possibly, no   man   better  known and more highly respected bv  nil classes of people in this part of the  country thnn Dave Ferguson,  whose  whole-souled heavtedness and helping  hand has gone out nt nil times to the  assistance'of friends in   distress and  discouragement nnd it will be to them  a great sorrow that anything should  befall him.,   The"HEUAi.n with a host  of friends of the missing man sincerely  hopes thnt he may turn up soon to his  home unharmed.

After the usual routine had been  gone through a Page was introduced  and inducted into the mysteries of the  rank of Esquire and so well was the  floor work done thnt there is not a  shadow of doubt that his recollections  of the journey will remain with him as  long as he livas. After a shcrt recess  in which the initiate had had an opportunity of realizing some of the beauties  of the ritual, as well as some that are  not, another candidate was charged in  the rank of Knight, amplified form,  and we cannot speak too highly of the  excellency of the team work.

Nelson, Jan. 7.���������At a largely attended and enthusiastic convention of  Conservatives held iu this city yesterday, Hon. Charles H. Mcintosh was  chosen, unanimously, to contest the  riding of Kootenay in the forthcoming  Dominion elections. The conventioVi  was attended by delegates from all  parts of the riding und was most  harmonious and enthusiastic throughout, which augurs well for the success  of the party in this riding.  Mr. Mcintosh has had a large experience in politics and for several  years served the city of Ottawa both  in the capacity of mayor and representative in the . House of Commons.  Later ho wns appointed Lieutenant-  Governor of thc Northwest Territories,  which position he held with honor and  dignity for a number of years. During the last ten years the Governor  hns lived at Rossland, devoting his  whole energies to mining, with considerable success, and has brought  more money,to the development of the  mines in the Rossland district than  any other man in British Columbia.  In Mr. Mcintosh thc Conservative  party has a man who is a winner from  the start and one whom the party as a  whole can work for with enthusiasm,  in the interests not only of this riding  but of the whots province. , JThe're is'  I>dssibly,rno" one'in the west more in  touch -with the requirements _, 'of - the  country ,ox; no��������� one. better qualified to  voice the.needs of these requirements  in the cHouse "of Commons ;than-the  Hon. .O.,a%ciutosh.

Theie is not the slightest  doubt tliat there are members of this  lodge who possess histrionic talent of  no mean order and it is only to be  regretted that there is no team with  which Gold Range could enter into  competition. After thc initiation the  installing officer Deputy G. C. Stewart 3IcDonald occupied tlie executive  chair and assisted by Past Chancellors  Buck and Van Home installed the  officers for the semi-annual term.  We may be permitted as one within  the inner circle to compliment the  retiring officers on the excellent record  they have left as a legacy to their  successors who, we are confident, will  continue to keep up the standard of  excellence bequeathed to them making  a ritual totally unnecessary which is  as it should be but unfortunately too  often is not.  The old saying "All work and no  play makes Jack a dull boy," was .evidently borne in mind because after the  business was finished a collation was  provided consisting of both solids apd  liquids, interspersed with songs,  speeches, etc. The attendance was  unusually large and we noticed a  goodly sprinkling of visitorsfrom both  sides of the national boundary.  Numerically the lodge shows a decided inci-ease since last j*ear with a  correspondingly improved exchequer  and ta en all in all we can see nothing  but prosperous times ahead for 1901.  It is expected that C.F.Nelson,  Grand Chancellor for this province,  will make  an official visit next Wed-  .      i  \' -  On New * Year's Eve the Eagles���������  Aerie 432, Revelstoke, B. C���������again  demonstrated their ability to entertain their frieDds-" and give them a  royally satisfying evening's enjoyment, the occasion - being their first  annual masquerade fancy dress ball.  Never has the Opara House been  more prettily decorated. The color  scheme followed the ever popular  patriotic colors red, white and blue.  Bunting streamers flowed down from  the centre of the ceiling to all sides of  the building and were caught up in the  centre by a huge Chinese umberella,  from which again was suspended a  Rocky Mountain Eagle���������on the wing,  emblematic of the Order.  All the windows were prettily draped  with lace curtains tied back with  streamers of red, white and'blue, while  the walls were heavily-festooned with  tricolor bunting and tissue garland.  On the stage was displayed a park  scene with procenium curtains which  made a nice back ground for the band.  Both ladies and gentlemen's dressing  rooms were well looked after and  provided with toilet requisites.  But the master stroke of the decorations was the sitting out cornel's and  draped with heavy Oriental curtains.  The band played a specially prepared programme for the occasion. At  9 o'clock President liurridge led off  and the company followed and were  soon miugliug in the mazy dance, they  made a brilliant and beautiful picture  with a comical side to it. What odd  contrasts! The "Maid of Athens"  clasping hands with a "Court Jester"  and again a stately court gentleman  paying homage to the Spanish dancer,  while a Jack Tar was capering before  a royal princess, and the Heathen  Chinee on equal footing with qny/of  them and for once was paying atten  tion to "Miss Canada."  Space will not permit of a detailed  account of the costumes, which in  many cases were excellent.  Too much praise cannot be tendered  the memheis of the different committees, whose efficient work made the  first annual bait such a success. -  Lunch was served at midnight by A.  E. Bennison of the City Bakery, and  was put up in splendid style, ample  justice being done to it by those  present. Rich nd Buckley was the  floor man-.-g''i-",->nd performed his duties  >o the sa-tisfa-iioo nf all.  The I<Va e.nal Order of Eagles desire ihrough the Herald to thank the  merchants for the loan of decorations,  etc., and to all persons who assisted in  making a success of their first annual  masquerade ball.

A banquet and meeting of the mining and business men of the Lardeau  took place last Saturday night at the  Windsor hotel, Ferguson, in honor -ot  Mr. W. B. Pool, says the Eagle. Mr,  G. iB.

He referred to Mr. Pool's  enterprise in exhibiting the ores of thc  Lardeau in dilferent pi.rts   of   Canada  and tho United States.  Mr. Pool on rising was greeted with  hearty and prolonged cheering. When  this had subsided, he thanked those  present for the kindly manner in  which they had received his name.  He said: "I see a number here who  have eaten from my pack, and I have  eaten from theirs; we have slept under  the one blanket and have tramped the  hills together, not only in British Columbia but in the wilds of California,  Montana,-Idaho_and -Washington���������I  see business men who helped me in  my early struggles in the Lardeau, aud  I see goodwill and friendship depicted  tage in mining, and with far more  prospects of returning big dividends  than the early investments in Colorado.

Mr Chairman, I wish to-night that I were an  orator, that I might have the language  to express my appreciation of the honor you have conferred on mc this  evening. I shall not take up your  time by referring to the provincial  mineralogist or the Mining Record;  we liave something more important to  occupy our minds. We are living  to-day in what I believe is the richest  undeveloped mining section in the  world. We have surface showings  such as the world has never seen, but  these-showings arc only indications of  the great wealth which lies buried in  old mother earth. lo make mines  requires capital, and it haa been my  aim to interest outside capital in the  riches of the Lardeau, and I am proud  to say that all the men who helped tne  in my first ventures have re-investcd  part of their profits in the Great  Northern Mines, Limited. Fate seems  to have worked against the development of this section. Tlie Slocan  boom, the Rossland boom and then  the Klondike boom all detracted from  the Lai-deau's chances. Then there  was our lack of transportation and the  uncertainty of the price of silver.  These conditions worked against the  Lirdeiiu and made it very difficult to  interest capital. There are people who  lii-.ifesa fear that this section may have  H f iise boom, Mr. Chairman, I claim  it is impossible for the Lardeau to have  a false boom; there is room in the  Lardeau for the investment of one  hundred million dollars, every dollar,  of which could  be inwstcd to advan-t'1  Sensational Evidence in Trial of  Condemned Fugitive's Brother  ���������Constables Found Guilty of  Neglect of Duty n  Calgari-,  N. W. T.,   Jan.   0.���������Evidence in the trial of John  Cashei was  of a sensational nature this afternoon...  The woman  in   the   case,   who gave  evidence,   was    Flora    Brazeau,    an  interesting    and    attractive    young  woman.    She testified that  she bad  been  matron  in  thc guardroom and  had become acquainted with Ernest  Cashei. with  whom  she   had become  fairly intimate.   She   had   met John  Cashei,   who   had   seen    her at  her  father's house.     John Cashei told her  some time before the escape   that   if  Ernest Casbel did not get a new  trial  that he intended to get him  out  of  jail.   He intended to  got   guns into  him and then he could force his way  out.    There would be a horse waiting  for him.    He would then be dressed in  woman's   clothi *   and   get   over     to  Buffalo, Wyo.    If lie ever got there he  could  stay   bei-.w^"    Cashei   had   so  many friend;*, t^.il  >ue   police would  never  get  him   anuy.   John   Cashei  said that he would not   be near the  guard room at the time,  but in soma  other part of the city,  and that then  they could not do   anything   to   hiin.  He asked her to be  with him   at  tho  time of the escape.    Hu .said that if ho  bad to go.down hinuolf he would do it  rather than let his  brother   be   punished.}  Three Northwest Momrtod Police  constables, who wer- found guilty of  neglect of duty in allowing murderer  Cashei to escape, have been sentenced  by Commissioner Perry at Calgary,  Piper, who had control of the guardroom, was given a year; Philipps and  Leslie were given six months. All  sentences are at hard labor, and  besides, the three were dismissed fron^  force. , I ''ii-  '.". *v. ...:���������.,>i������,-* *������������������'���������:-' tiia^vf^*'"^.^\?-<'---.-?-*t'"''"v~  :-K-, .ii.-:'.yv   ."

He  made  doors   and   bars   to   His   mouth  an-l kept His tongue from evil, and in  cvry word was pleasing to His Father.  W bile  the   Evangelists   have   given   tis  no account of our Lord's words (hiring  th^se thirty years, yet- there are three  instances  related   that   unfold  to   us  a  fact  that  our   Lord  mingled   freely  in  social    intercourse   with   others���������first,  >vhen  he   tarried  behind  after  the  festival  in Jerusalem;  next,  at thc mar-  ri^qe feast in Cana, and then the words  "Thc   Son   of   Man   came   eating  and  drinking."    These instances show that  onr Lord did not shun social mcctipcM  wish His neighbors.    For all  that, He  was in no way odd, but chose to be iiko  unto thc mass of His brethren, and lo  pass through  life  as  most of us  have  to pass through.

I noticed lately a tender little wail  which  arose  from  a  lady who  found  herself overburdened wilh the too frequent tank oi arranging birds and blossoms for the passages and apartments  lo man | of her    London    house.    A   lover   of  flowers, ns    everybody    of good  taste  must be, she confessed to feeling something not unlike what -the prisoner experience:; when his day's allowance of  oakum to be picked has just* been served out,  to  see  her  buller    climb    lhe  staircase, holding al arm's length ou a  vast tray the confused heap of blooms  account j aiu[ foliage; behind him    at the same  time word I come lire parlormaid, staggering under    a  load of  glasses    and  vases and what  not,  destined  to hold  the costly plunder of the morning.   At  first a    delightful labor nnd always    a  graceful and sweet-scented one, it had  come, said thc fair complainant, to be  a   heavy   arid   time-consuming     task,  growing more arrd more    burdensome  as the fashion of floral display extended, and    the country    every  morning  sent up to town such tempting wealth  of roses and  lilies  and  the  rest.  It is not the fault of the flowers, ol  course,  except because, being so fragrant, so delicate, and so bcautiiul, ihey  make slaves of ail who serve lhem. On  the contrary,  it would  decidedly  tend  to shock the    mind    of many    a fair  arranger of llowers if science went to  lhe  unkind pains of explaining to her  how entirely lree from* any wish or intention to t������ive pleasure arc those exquisite roses and all those dainiy blossoms.    If    there were,    indeed, a language of flowers,' and the products of  lhe parterre could   speak,    tlrey would  say, "Madam (or Miss), do not flatter  yourself that one petal of us has been  tinted, one bud   expanded, one    green  leaf spread    to the    sunshine,  or  one  single calyx among us has opened its  wonderful apparatus oi stamen and pistil to nestle in your silken tresses or  to repose in not unequal rivalry above  your  rosy checks    or  upon your  lily-  white necks and bosoms.   Not for you,  however much thc poets   have lied to  you, were we created, and   never   for  you have we grown up to the glory and  the  grace for which we have become  to-day    your    unwilling    victims.    We  were made so lovely, so delicate ruivl  variously tinted, perfumed so divinely,  and loaded withlittlc chalices of nectar  distilled from earth    and sky   by such  chemistry as your Royal Society never  knew,   wholly   and   solely   to   please  a  beetle, to attract a bee, to woo into our  secret service the painted butterfly or  fluttering moth.  "Your great and learned 'Mr. Darwin, if you will only read him, can show  you why we wear these colors and display these stains and patches and lines  of scarlet and gold, of purple and amber.

Oats a Safe Hen Food.  Germany's Rise.  It Is strange what fool theories men  of good common sense will allow  themselves to believe. Listen to this,  which comes from one of our veter;  inary writers: "Oats in the hull will  so injure and inflame the lining of the  crop of ihe fowl as to cause death."  As a theory, this is bad enough, but  when we are told by some poultry editor that wo must give up feedingoats  because the practice is dangerous, then  is becomes ridiculous. As a matter ol  fact, the hull of the oat is not of an  inflammatory nature, and contains  nothing thai can possibly lead lo an  inflamed condition. Oats fed whole  arc not even irritating, as the hull is  neither siiiT nur sharp, and when  moistened in the crop of the fowl becomes  soft  and pliable.  I have fed o.ils to hens arrd to grow"  ing chicks for years, and have never  had one die fronr this cause. Orr the  contrary, 1 believe oats to be not only a stimulating anil energy-making  food, but a vory wholesome one as  well. From my experience, which is  by no means limited, I have come to  believe that oats are orre of tire hcsl  egg-making foods we have; that they  arc productive of growth when fed to  chicks, and that they go a great way  toward keeping up the energy and  health of the Hock. The hull of the  oat may not contain much nourishment, but it has sonic food value and  is harmless.  Hens need some bulk to their food,  and the oat hulls will keep thc food  from becoming too compact in thc  crop and digestive organs. There is  no need to resort to the expense of  feeding hulled or ground oats, :  whole oats are better and cheaper.  My flock of layinghens has-eatcn an  average of one-half bushel each during  the year���������I have sometimes fed more���������  and the results have been satisfactory.

There seemed to be a. general murmur or assent from all below.  l.orntne quickly closed the door. She  had heard enough. Her brain seemed on firo; her senses reeled. Sho  drew the .bolt of| tho d-oor, flung herself down on tho onrrpet, and there  the beautiful, proud young heiress wept the bitterest itears that evor  welled up from a. human heart.  After a violent storm of grief, a  calm usually follows, but it was not  so in this caso.  The sparjcling diamond glowing upon her frnger��������� hLs ring��������� maddened  her with its prismatic ������low: she drew  it from her finger, flinging it with all  'the fury of her strength into ��������� the  furthermost corner of the room.  She laughed a little, low, wild  laugh.  ",-!will fling it .from me as I do his  love," stie ciried; "li*ar out hi.s iuvige  from my heart forever and ever. Yes,  I say, forever and ever."  Loraine lelt a wondrous, strange  sensation creeping over her.  Every sob ended in a mocking  laugh. The strange stillness of the  house puzzlod her. Queer spectres  danced around hor. and wilh their  long, bony ringers, pointed mockingly  at the wnite ro"bes and bridal veil she -  wore. How dared they approach the  secret of her own chamber? She fium;  back upon thein their cruel taunts  and jeers; and they in turn mocked  her every look and word.  "Foots!" she (cried. "Do you Chink  I care? What if the whole world  were gathered downstairs, what 'need  .1 care il thoy do know* he did not  come? I do not care," she sobbed,  her votce growing louder and louder.  "I will go "down among them and be  the gayest of rthe gay; <no wit shall be  more brilliant than mine.  "Yet, why' ero they here, all these  people?" she 'pontiered slowly. "What  do they want? I rim trying hard to  think, yes, to think; but my poor  brain Ih on fire. I on nnot remember  whiy they are here. Where are my  flowers amd'Tan? But an instant ago  I placed them on this table. No, they  were on, that stand. I do not. see  them in tho room. Ha! Katy has taken them downstairs."  She unibolted the door and Tushed  into lhe hall.  Thero wore strange hilarious 'laughter and burst of song heard bj those  "below, that froze the blood in their  veins; the next Loraine. Lorrimer, tho  beautiCut, spoiled, petted child stood  amomg them.  'Her'hair was disheveled, her white  veil torn and -disordered.

At that moment a horseman, trovpr-  ���������ed WLth dust ruid foam, dashed rapidly  up to Uie entrance gate, hearing a  telegram in his hand addressed lo  Loraine.

They were last seen driving at a  furious pace alone the highway.  Their path lay Ihrough a bigh, narrow roadway, overlooking the spa on  one side, high shelving rook on the  other. 'Twas there tihe terrible tragedy had been .enacted.  Two vehicles, approaching each  other from different directions, had  collided, and the carriage containing  the young heir had heen throw n over  into the sea. > |  In an instant the wildest confusion  hod prevailed.  Horses nor vehielp, driver nor the  white, peaceful face   of Paul Illiags-  Koiaiiie had so unexpectedly appeared  among them.  Tho dart, handsome  f:r^e of   ITr:(U>  Hampton, for it    was   he,    grew      a  shade paler    as he    listened  to    the  ^    telegram.  + "Saved," he multec'd, under hi:  breath; *'t do not. see how it eoul'*  have Ijeen possible.

Yes,,  so  it  read;  his  life  hung  b-  a  slender   threud.  Silently the guests emitted tbe man  sion. Heath Hampton was among th.  last to depart;- his dark eyes rove-  eagerly over the stritely mansion, an  the magnificent grounds which surrounded it, as they Iny dark and si!"(ii  bathed In tl)e sf-itirtow.v moonbeam".  "If he dies," no said to himself, "nil  this may yet De mine. Tt is worth n  desperate struggle, 'and I mean to  make it."  Of the paat ttCe of Hesth Hampton  but little was known. H<~' had come  ���������with his mother to no������lon some three  years previous.'y; none know frum  .whence.  'Thivy had purchased what wn afterward known as Tfimpton Place.  and there they lived in stately, lonely splendor. '  ���������The mother was haughty, peculiar  silent and reserved, shunning nil intercourse or overtures from the outside world. '  ���������The son was quite the opposite, winning and refined, with much grace of  presence and courtesy of breeding.  Ho spent money with a lavish hand,  .yet one who was a keen observer o.'  human nature could nee he was utterly devoid or prfncfpfe; ono who  f only lacked the opportunity of bocom  ��������� ing the deepest or villains; yet the  cloak of hypocrisy was gathered so  tightly about hitn. the outer world lit-  tie dreamed of the inner blackness.  He-ath Hampton lound no dlfficu'-  ty in gaining an entree into the iniwl  exclusive society; as fs too often the  caso, no one thought of inquiring into his antecedents.  ' He had lain siege at once to the  heart and hantf of-the pretty hcirc-s.  Tt had been a close tie between Ulmont Ulvesford and himself as lo  which was in rcalfly the favored suit-  ���������or.     ' .  ���������  There had been a time when Loraine hardly Knew herself just wlreh  she liko better; when she ultimately  chose Ulmont Ulvesford, all hopes or  reigain'g as master of Lorrimer Hall fell tike a house of cards  around  the schemer.  Hc had never loved tho fair, haughty  beauty, yet he had vowed to win her  fortune, ho had been resigned to accept Loraine wi'tfi  it.  Eagerly he watched the rapid recovery of his rival, bitcerly cursing his  luck. His congratulations, although  being, anything but Mncere. had the  essence of earnesfness in tone nnd  look, which, although a spurious article, readily passed for the genuine  coin.  Loraine, who had rapidly recovered  from her terrible shock, had taken up  her place with his mother, whose illness hnd not proven so serious as was  at first supposed, tit Ulmont's bedsi-'e.  anid good old Dr. Xelson often remarked his patient's rapid recovery  was in -a. great measure due to Loraine's careful nursing.  "I never could have spared him,"  she would say, with n bright, hap-'  py laugh, while Ulmont answered  gently: '  "The life yon have striven so hard  to save. Loraine, shall ever be devoted  to youi"  To Ulrnont Ulvesford there seemed  to exist no break in the love he had  always borne to Loraine.  Mrs. ^Ulvesford had taken up her'  vigil by his bedside, refusing lo lie  comforted; all the love of lipr life was  centered in her handsome, only son.  Once, in his 'dreams, and she s iw  his lips move, as she benr her head,  she thought she heard him whimper  a sweet, fanciful nume; it sounded  like  "Izetta."  He never uttcTed the name but onc������.  and *he soon forgot the incident, it  was of*so little import.  Slowly Ulmont t'lvesford piiiher������d  up the tangled threads of his li'e  again; by degTees a pari of the scattered past returned to him.  He remembere-d rjiiite well his travels abroad, the people whom he bad  met, and the pleasant ocean voyo<re  homeward as he was coming to claim  hi** bride.  He remembered he must have passed his twenty-first birthday on the  ocean. He remembcre I ofien gnzing  upon Loraine's portrait in tho moonlight, but beyond .this, heaven help  him! he remembered nothing; leaning  over the rails, rgaziTi.'r ilown on the  "moon!it~w-avcs-atr-rrii(In1ght.- was-thn  last recollection thru crossed Ul-  xnont Ulvesford's mind.  The following events, which had so  quickly followed in rapid succession  ���������how he landed, or Hip slight est remembrance of the'accident which had  so nearly coilt Irim his life, were entirely obliterated from his mind.

Since his illness ho had been given  to strange fits of melancholy reveries wh'ch seemed ever seeking  somo choucht quite fortfoiien, which  brought with them a vngue, indefinable pain; he oould never tell why  he always attributed it to some vanished fancy during his illness; he,  did not caro to remember it. Mrs.  Ulvesford clasped Loraine in her arms  saying the happiest day of her life  would be 'hn day which made her hei  son's wife.  Again, through the cruel mysteries  of fate, the wedding preparations wen  going steadily on. This time it wns  concluded that the ceremony should  be performed at the church in the  early morning, when the sun was shin  ing and the birds were sngiing.  "I could never endure a repetition  of that cruel night at Lorrimer Hall,  ���������when I thought I had lost you."  whisprred Lorninp.  "You shall have your own way.  my darling," answered Ulmunt; "your  iway shall be my law."  So it was arranged that the wedding should take place at tin" church,  and be as qulot a   one cs possible.  The propitious morning dawned at  last.  ��������� rAt an early hour a long nrrny_ ol  carriages dre-w up before -the little  vine-covered cburrh in the suburb''  The sunshine drifted down through  tho foliage like molten gold; the robins In the green branches minuled  their notes with the tuneful bobntini*  the sweet scent of honeysuckle and  clover wafted their fragr-ince over  the hawthorn hedges, the sun hinte-'  love to the cloudss", the birds sang o'  love to tlieir mates; love was the eong  the little brook saruj as it danced juy-  fu.'ly over Ihe wh.te p.'bble>��������� all nn-  ture sang of lovo on this pitiful marriage morn.  Ulmont would nl lc w no shadow in  cross the brightness oi thc day. I-'  one of those strange, brooding fancies he could not define stole over him,  he shook it ofr and forgot it in watching the beautiful, flower- like face of  Loraine. .'  Neither the sunshine, the flowers,  the birds, nor the brooklet warned  them of the fatal tragedy which was  about to be enacted; a tragedy too  deep, too bitter for words to describe, and they went on to  doom with a smile on their faces.  , The sunshine streamed in through  the colored windows, flecking the  bride's soft, fleecy robes, with bars  of crimson, purple  and gold.  Ulmont pressed tbe little band  tenderly as they took their places at  tho altai*.  Suddenly, and wiLhout warning,  dsirk clouds scudded across the sunshine,' the soft, summer breeze wailed  among the tall oak trues, and the  flowering lilacs; the blossoms on the  hillside swayed to and fro, bending  therr heads be������ore the storm,  The distant* ocean wildly beat tho  shore like a relentless, angry spirit;  in one brief instant the face of naturo  had changed. Thunder rolled across  the darkening slty, nnd vivid flashes  of lightning, following each other in  rapid succession, felled many a stately forest oak, whose crashing as it  fell to earth was plainly heard, and  they lit up the group that stood -before the dim altar, with its cold,  "bright glare.  ��������� Loraine's face was very pale, and  Ulmont noticed the little hand which  he held fluttered slightly.

While walking the ol'ipr day from a  remote vincinage uf tire town on the orre  side to an equally remote purlieu in  the other I chanced to cross .Easy  ���������street, a thoroughfare with wiricli 1 have  rro longitudinal acquaintance. Just in  the middle of the way there came, with  a volcanic roar, out of a column of dust,  an automobile. 1 was thrown fifty feet,  aird'lodged in a locust-tree. With a surviving eye I caught, on the rear of tho  vehicle, as it tore away, the large silver  initials, "P. Q."  Perhaps I have exaggerated thc incident somewhat; but something happened.  Anyhow, I know this Peter Quick.  Twenty years ago wc were well acquainted. 'Twas the time when I was making  love to Musette. A rather good job of  love-making it was, too, I suspect. Never rhulcss, 1 used up my own allowance,  und :noa't of my brother's, arid the not  l.irg." Mim I earned, und the rather neat  amount that I could borrow. Musette  married a man named���������named Hunks, I  think, or something of the sort.  Peter Quick, also, was making love at  thc time, and as fervently as I. Not  since tlrp joyous Ionian sea gave forth  the goddess of love bus there been a  nrore ardent wooer than P. Q. I thought  then not much of Ore object of liis aifec-  tiorri, .however. I marveled at his choice.  Little did I suspect that she was the  21'eatest heiress that the world can show.  Peter Quick waa making love to Frau-  Iein Hard Work.  Peter Quick wooed Hard Work���������successfully. No man named Hunks (or  something like this) got her away from  Mm. Early and lu.te he made love to  her. He sent her, so to 3ay, llowers; and  fashioned, ns it were, sonnets to her eyebrow. He dreamed of her at night, und  thought of her on Sundays and holidays.  We never could get hiin to talk of much  else. When I contrived my rather celebrated mixture of Virginia and Ixutakia,  and oiTcred Peter some of it, he looked  at me abstractedly and said that I knew  he didn't smoke. Miss Work, I suspect,  objected to smoking. Musette had a  pretty knack at rolling a cigarette for  me when I called, I suppose she rolled  them just as fetchingly for Hunks���������or  whatever -his name wus. We all had our  fling at P. Q. for his absurd devotion to  his queer sweetheart. He took it good-  naturedly���������and grew more devoted. As  he became more and more taken up with  her, we saw less and less of him. None  of us eared much; we were so unable to  sympathize with his infatuation.

A recent number ot Medical Talk has  an article-on the evil physical effects of  "whining." Comrlaints, says the writer, are invariably made in a minor key.  This monotony rasps the voeal chords,  taxes nasal nerves and muscles that  should not be brought into play at'all  In speaking, and tends to shallow, uneven  breathing. Tho whlnor. too. Is almost  without exception a moro or less "idle,  lazy person. The habit or whining itselt  tends tb. sap initiative impulse and Increase ���������phlegmatic tendencies. Habitual  whlnjns, not healthy, vigorous fault-flrvi-  lng where fault really exists, but tho  helpless, futile complaining of a narrow  nature too indolent to make any effo'-t to  right fit causes of complaint, has a definitely deleterious physical erfect on tho  whole constitution. Add to this the fuci  that eternal fault-finding is more than  likely to wear out Ihe stanehest friendship and take the light from the loveliest countenance, and the full effects of  tMg insidious r-.rH prevalent habit will  bs better apprccinlcl.

Cornell University Uullctin No. zlt  affords some valuable suggestions on  hens and eggs. It mentions one White  Le'glibfrTflock"which av"cfagcd~for~the"  year i"i&9 eggs per hen; another  l������7-4. and the third 134.8, th;  average of all being 129.7. It will  be seen that the average number    of  cSgs produced per hen is much less  than, that often claimed. Records of  200 eggs and more per hen have been  frequently published in the agricultural  press and elsewhere. Inasmuch as  these flocks represent the better class  or poultrynien, the fowl were in al!  probability much better fed and cared  ior than average flocks, it would seem  that all claimed records of more, than  ������������������SO eggs ;per hen per year should be  abundantly verified before, lying accepted. ��������� ' .''���������*'  ���������I The average food cost of the eggs  produced ranged from .5.9 cents per  dozen in April and May to 49.1 cents  per dozen in December, and the average per year was 9.2 cents per dozen.  Thc average gelling price of lhe eggs  varier' from 16.8 cents per dozen in  Ar.rl to 31.25 cents per dozcrr in Jan:  nary, with an average of 21.4 cents for  the whole year. There were i.-joo fowl  in thc three Hocks, ri'.rd it cost an average of just about a dollar a year  per pen for their food. Under the prices  nt which food and eggs were figured,  the food cost 44 per cent, of thc value  of thc eggs produced, leaving 56 per  cent. to.provide for labor, interest on  investment and equipment, depreciation in value of hens and profits.  ly, I lost sight of him entirely, though  I've heard that he has kept up "his courtship without abatement.

You would not permit  free advertising, so I must not mention  its name. In fact, there is a little practical ditliculty ia so doing, that I will let  you infer.  My newspaper depends upon its reputation for giving all of the news, ratner  than upon the tricky device of staring  headlines to gull the thoughtless. Therefore, it does not think it necessary to  begin every important article on the  first page.  Before I discovered my newspaper, I  used to become very irritable at tho  breakfast table. 1 would begin a piece of  news, read down the column, and find  this formula, "Continued on page thrae."  Then- I would refold the great sheet,  stand it up against the water-pitcher,'  and read a dozen lines to the end. Turning back to the first page, 1 would begin  another article and soon come to a stop  with the words, "Continued on page  nine." This time I would rumple the pii- .  per considerably as I hunted for tlie se-  uuel. About tlie third lime, I would say  to my wife, "What is the matter with  this coffeeT I never drank such vile  stuff before in my life."  We killed a man at our club the other  night, and he was a good fellow, too.  We all liked him, but we all joined in  the most brutal assault upon him. The  trouble was that he would everlastingly  interlard his talk with such expressions  rs this: "The news about Smith, that I  was thc first to make nublie, etc." Or  this, "As I told vou all' Inst week, etc."  Some of the gentlest members of the club  fell upon him in-a perfect rage.  Tli ere came into the village a man who  undertook to reform the elub; he said  we were too dull, too remote from real  life. "What," said he, "do we care about  the downfall of thc British ministry, or  the prospects of polar explorationT" He  said the daily newspaper was a very good  index to what the people were interested  in, and we ought to get our subjects  from the press.  Woll, to be brief, he carried his poinl  and revolutionized the club. I will give  a few of the topics that I hear havo been  under discussion: "Who began the row  at McFlynn's saloon?" "The naked facts  of the Jonesbury divorce ease." "The art  of padding for scrawny built women."  They tell me the meetings are very full.

Lndy Ulanche spoke of the business

thought, and ho exerted himself to

made  a  sign   to  Marian.

there   than   he.   started   back   with   i
sudden   exclamution.
"Miss Mostyn I You here?"
What   a   crowd   of -horrible  memor-
res  rose to torment  him as he stood
meeting  that set,  cold smile!   He   was
too surprised   even   to   hike  the  hand
.Barbara   extended   to   him.
"Ypu  here ?"   was  nil   he  conlrt say.
T!arl>ara   came   toward   him   softly.
"Yes; I would nol:  let. Lndy Blanche

"Husband?" broke in Barbara,
"Yes, Barbara, -husband! Ah, I

thing  bul  a   wonderful dream.        the
could   not     believe    he.r    ears    as she
stood before. .Mr. .Mom rose, ;md  Icin
ed that riches, and all that niak'ts life
luxurious had come to her.
"I have had some difficulty In fn I-
ing you, my dear," .Mr. Montrose bad
said, as .the girl strll stood speechless
and amazed  before him.
They were tniking in a little rormr
that led off (ho one. where Cordon
was   lying. fle    could  hear    every
word, nnd this sudden wealth wns
something more than marvelous and
delightful  t.o htm.
Katharine was quick to notice, r h<!
a! in oh t pained hesitation with which
her father's old friend addressed h-r.
Mr. Montrose called her by no name,
thus proving tnat he already judged
her ns Gordon nnrl intended s!:e
should be judged, nnd she couldc do
nothing but srrhrnrt ro this. When rhe
question or imme/li.-rtR ways arid
meini had been entered into, Mr.
Montrose was anout to lake his departure, when hc wns stopped by
Gordon's voice, weak and low, calling
him  from the next room.
"I have lre.ii rd all yorr have been
sayr'n-j," he, muttered, with a ft ream
of hi.s old sneer rn hf-j eyes anl lii-H.
"Ho��� f nm married, to a rich wnrn-n,
il: seems! Aye," as both Kat Iur rim:
nnd Mr. Montrose started 'involuntarily, "we are, married, sure enough,
aren't:  we,  Knitfe.?"
Katharine wns n:e.nl. for a moment.
She found, it dirri'cutt to stifle h-er
contempt for this man who, ri"-.v
thai sbe could give turn riches, determined, thai she, was worthy of the
consideration whr'ch, as a woman had
been h^r due trom'the ffrst; bin Ilie
next 'moment, a sense of great frre-
dnni e.'irne over her, ,-in.l, lifting beeves to Mr. Montrose, slie said, very
"f am his wffe. f hirv-1. been his
wife from .flic first."
Anl then (iorrlon talked on oxcil-i illy about t'-lnr rlton Abbey, arwl declared tbey should go ilin-e' a I. once; Im
���-vas strong enough lo stand twenty
j iu nevs. and. he was i'n ;ftir to li ��� ��';
bmire  wiih  hrs <lear wife��� hN      v/ife.
I eaw her shiver involuntarily.     Thero
] was much >to bo questioned��� much to
Xiu  known;   but  a   gi:.nco  iit her lace
I determined   htm   co  question   nothing
| yiiL.lt wirs suilicient that Ira knew her
��� lo b' Gordon .smyihe.'s ic^til  wife;   in
I liiiiQ he mi_vht  find cut   lhe truth     of
this strange alfnir��� lhe nreaning 'of
Katharine's sad. face��� but. not yoi.
'After that, it wa.s all bustle and
confusion io the girl. She seemed lo
live in a dream, out of which the
meoring with Lidy Urummoud and
her warm, affectionate irrauiier rose
gratefully. Shi; was claimed on every side, by lawyers, by doctors, nnd
i-hi'fl-y by Gordon, who, with cunning
dread, feared lest she. should slip a-
way  from hiru  now by some chance.
It was not Kat h.rrine he doubted;
ho knew the power he hud over her.
But now thai her po.dlion was olian^;-
ed, hu feared that she mighl open her
heart to her new friends and so escape him. His one. .desire, one idea,
was to leave London and get uway
to Charlton Abbey, ijiere to remain
until his strength was fully returned.
���The day came at last that was
fixed for the journey. Lucy Smythe,
whom Gordon had at length permitted to be informed of all that had
happened, was in an agony of fear.
���All astonishment at 'the news of
Katharine's wealth and the strange
marriage -had been swallowed up in
tho naturul anxiety her mother's
heart had undergone from the first
moment. She had rushed up to.be
with her darling. She had no time
no thought to devote to any one but
Gordon; and if she had noticed Katharine's pale, changed face, it would
only have seemed to her right and
natural   under   the  circumstances.
The presence of Lucy .Smythe-was. a
relief to poor Katharine, for apart
from the terrible mental' burden she
had been -callud upon tt> endure, she
w^as nearly worn out with her constant   work  in   the "sick   room. i.
"I  think I'(must go  wiih  you   and
nurse you a liale," said  Sister  Dora
gentl/y,   just   as  she  was   taking: her
departure. .
Katharine  smiled  faintly.
"Come-and stay  with  me,  yes.   But
I need no nursing, derr; r am no. il!.''
The   sister   gave   no   reply,   but       a
pang went through her heart as th"
gazed   at   the  girl's  face,   that  spoke
all  so clearly  ol   the oickr.css wnnln.
"Poor   child I"   she   said    .<>   her-re'f.
"Pool-   child!     Whatever   power     has
linked   you  to   that   brute  has   killed
your young life as  easily  as im-r can
crush   a   flower.    1   would   give   much
to   see   that   shadow   leave   her,    but
while she   is near her husband   that
can never be."
Katharine's first impression of her
new home was no; a pleasant one.
/The day was dtnk and gloomy, and
the_ difficult nnd painful task of
lifting the sick man from Ihe special
carriage in which he had traveled
direct from London, gave a grucsomo
nnd saddened aspect to everythln-r
.All she w.is conscious of was a desire for rest, for soli;rule, for psnee;
the beauty, I hc mngni.'ience ol| Charlton Abbey, it;, spniotrs grounds, lis
lofty walls, ils luxurious appointments, all were lost on her. Sire
walked into the qrr.iinl, (Id- fashioned
hall in a set, mechanical fashion, returning the serv.iiris' greetings as in
a dream. The Iouk ou her young
face and in her beau.iful eyes haunted Mr. Montrose for mmj and many
a  day  afterward.
"Whnt can be her' secret ? Whirl can
it be?" he mused wiih contracted
brow, as he greeted her, having s-ic-
rifi".cd a most particular- appointment in London on pur-pose to do .-o.
He would have shiunk back aglr.-st
could he. have guessed tlrat the~*-lra-

As she walked up the broad staircase, ehe memory of all her misery
returned   lo  rhe  girl   with   a   rush.
"This is mine, ..nd yet what am I'
The wife ol" a murderer; ihe wife of
one who if known would be shunned
and feared. Tl is a mockery. What

Mr. Monrro.-e ,ilon�� un-lerslood anil
grasped   foiri"  r,'"<r of  the   truth.
He took both her cold, small bands
in his, when he .went away the rn:xl
morning. '
"Now promise to send for me whenever you any nce.l mc, my dear,"
he said, gently, and with real affection in his voice. "Look on m�� not

Katharine had evinced neither surprise nor ohj-o'ion when sire found
that her new home was within so
close a distance of Brexley Hall. The
girLwas really ill. This apathetic
condition was the forerunner of a
thorough break-up in' the nervous
system; she was becoming lo��t in the
henry lassitude nnd depression that
grew worse and .worse every day. Her
lifo was spent in her room. Gordon
had his mother and a regiment of
servants to fulfil his smallest command, and Katharine was free lo
be alone With her thoughts. She never approached her husband, even for
a moment, and this strange proceeding awakened great curiosity in the
household,������ who could not, understand
the  nrr.mgemerrt  at  all.
Gord.on bit -his lip savagely at this
mu've; it lookea i'o mm lilte doiiance',
and. roused his anger. ' '; ���   ,. ��� "���
"Where is KathnnneT" he. asked hie

then, ns if mechnnicn'ls-, she turned
into  the  room   where Gordon   was.
"You have come at last, have you?*'
ho greeted her with a   snoor.
His eyes went savagely to her face,
and a f'-own rarae as he looked at
her. nis nimlier was right, and she
wns ill; yel ill as she was, she wa.s
as cold and silent as she had ever

The village doctor sent word thi-s

Without a .word Cuoy Smyihe
looked up into his lUce, then wiih a
groan she pushed pasl liim, and rarr
into the room where they told her
her son was.
"You musi bo prepared -for the
worst, Mrs. Smythe," the physician
said to Katharine. _, "Y"ou"r husband cannot possibly survive.hia injuries I In liis condition it was simply madness to have attempted nny

Kalharine grasped the door wilh
her right hand. She had faced rhe

the first days of his accident, but
now tho awful reality struck hor-.
lie was going oul of this world, going without having cleansed his scui
from the terrible ���Iho ghastly ���.sin
that had laid on il during the pist
mon r lis. She had no feeling of re-
spuoi for the coward who had so
cruelly persecuted her, but the
thought of this death ���uns.hrivcn, un-
confessod ���was to her mosA. aWjui.
"Let ���let mo go lo him I" she

Katharine madu no answer, buL followed the doctor with slow, faltering
steps, into the chamber" of death.
With dim eyes she saw the. heap on

in rr nursd's garb, and another man's
figure, who was standing gazing vacantly  at  tho seem1,  with  wide, stal
ing blue eyes, from under a shock of
while hair.
iThc nurse moved up to the doctor
"We have discovered who it is he
wanterl to seo here," she said in low
torres to th<j doctor. -. "I sent up-
stnirs for some lint, rind they, gave
it to S'umber Thirteen to bring down

[The doctor knell down by the "dying in in, and. Katharine, leaning back
uguirisi lh�� iwalil, watched him with
distended' eyes, feeling, her heart
grow  colder and  colder, within   her.
'Suddenly Gordon moved, his 'eyelids ripaned, and ! he saw Katharine..'
There was a scintillation of expression in lhem which the doctor translated. "'.:""��� -.'���;   \," .
"I think he ...wants you, Mrs.

There was a spasmodic movement
of the head, then, a moment's .silence; then three, words, uttered in a
husky voroe, wilh a glance at the
strange man's figure with its staring   v���cant  ��yes   and   whitened  hair.

him, pissed away from tho world
und   his sins  forever.

instead a igreat. rush of darkness, a.
siiu;ing in hor cars, anil ilieu ��� oblivion.
Once more an August sunshine poured Its golden radiance oh tho land.
Hrexluy Tillage was again err fete to
celebrate the birthday of its lady
head and ruler. All was bustle and
confusion, just as il hnd been twelve
months before, and Barbara Mostyn
surrounded by a throng of guests,
posed, talked, and patronized in her
old   familiar style.'
'\Are wo not to seo your fair neighbor, the young' widow with the romantic history, Barbara?" Lady
Crura Lennox asked in a casual way,
as she sauntered with hor hostess
under the trees.
tllarbaru drew her thin lips still
"I do uot recrive persons of hor
oalibre,"  she  replied   ourtlj.
"Why ?" Lndy Clara otKined tor
.sleepy eyes to their- fullesL extent.
"Has she done anything wrong, really �� Oh, do tell mc, liarbnra. She
seemed such a nice, quiet girl when
she   was   with   you     last   year,      and
your aunt, Laidy -Drum "
"Aunt Eli en should, bo ashamed of
he.rself I" Miss Mostyn's f.u-o was
whito with anger. "lint then every
one knows tluit she is matt on Mime
things, and this uo-cailled .Mrs. Gordon  Smyihe is ono of  them."
"So   called !'"   Lady   Clara   repeated
languidly,   now,    thoroughly  enjoying
hersulf.      "Oh,     wtrsn'r     she  married
then,  Barbara? I  thought  there  was   ,
some romantic history about how sbe
saved "
"Sho is a vile adventuress I" Har-
bara almost hissed between her
teeth, "and if I hart my \V,ry I w.oiuld
sweep all such people out of tho
land I"
Lady. Clara hummed soft iy to her-
sedif;  she  began   to  see  ilay light.
"iBy the. way, my dear, when do
you expect  Lord  Ol way   to return?"
.Barbara's face changed, and she
cast  down her eyes demurely.'
"He   did   not  say   exmotly   when,'In.
his    last   letter," she  answered.
Lady Clara was silent,for a moment
"He   is  a   good   correspondent,  isn't
ho?"  sho remarked.
'Barbara's brows contracted for a-
seoond,   then  she   rijo-Lied  smoothly :
"Yes, very; but Ihen Ire hns so much-
to  say -to me, you know Clara."
Lady Clara pursed up her lips as
she sauntered on alone, some one having como  to claim   Barbara.
"What strange things m-n are. Now
what can ba the at traction in Barbara 'Mostyn for such n nature : as
Lord Otway's. It is very, odd, almost as odd as tho manner in which
ho suddenly threw up his-curacy last
year, and went out as a missionary
to China. I could have wished him
a better ultimate fale than marriage
with Barbara  Mostyn!"
Lady Clara sauntered on and on until, somehow, she had reached .the
skirts of Brexley flail grounds, 'and
was looking out on the vi lingo road
iAs she stood there, deep in .her
thoughts, a smairt little crrrriage,
drawn by a pair of pretty ponies,

black- robed figure of the Jndy driving Lndy Clara was quick to recognize
Katharine,  Mrs.  Gordon  Smythe.
|A flush mounted to our heroine's,
lovely checks, and then a smile came
as, al a gesture, Lady Clara motioned her Lo draw up, anil then went
forward gracefully, with her hand
outslrelched   in   greeting./
'"I am "delighted to tueot. you, Mrs.
Smythe,'" she said warmly and truthfully, for she had both liked and admired. Katharine, and Barbara's s|.ito
had only'deepened this feeling. "You
remember  mo, of course ?"
"Perfectly," Katharine answered,
iNol a trace of the. serious illness
that had fallen on her af ror. Gordon's
death remained to mar her beauty;
but for tho sad expression in' her gray
eyes, she looked as she did the tirst
night we saw her. Life now was
very different Lo her; she was revered"; beloved and admired by all , a-
round   her;  she  hnd  everything  that
money   could Procure.;   her  purse  was    	
ever open'to aTlevia.l(> suffering and

away from Craven Adair's-saddened

from which he had endured. Hor [Kith
lay clear and bright before her, with
only one shadow \ipoh it, and that
one a shadow that would never piss
���the bitterness of her hopeless,- never-ending love for one w.lip hud considered her not even worthy the '

I Yes, Curry was an old-timer. The,  [ashlon of his clothes���������the ample tranters, the long-tailed coat, the heavy  jravat, only less antique tharr a stock  '.he rolling collar, lire dusty, broad;  Jrimmrd silk hat that rested like Web  iter's squarely upon his wrinkled tern-  Ties���������quickly proclaimed his detachment  |,roin the modern mode.  80 that the figure of Old Curry nn it  loveiup Center street was in 11 marked  way ditl'erent from any other likely U  be sccq on that thoroughfare. With  head bowed, the lank lawyer strode !i  an uncompromising line near th* curb  his white hair fluttering, the skirt ol hi".  ������oat careering in tire .oa'r-ly April wind.  I Turning into Leonard street, OM  [Ourry entered one of those middle-aged  brick buildings that stood over against  the grim facade of the Tombs. The  'neiglrborhood seemed to express a recollection of the dramas of the quadrangle  a, consciousness of low company, a eyni  cal expectation tlrnt the world would  continue to be wicked. Legal boasts of  prey prowled in the shadows, and Old  Ourry passed among them as one w-lic.  should' gather his toga from the touch  of  the unclean.  Yet the building in which Curry hae  his oflice seemed to .'-withdraw,..'��������� _lik>  Curry himself, fiom the nreniiness of tli'  surroundings. The little bird store of  the street was always chirpy. Even oi'  Hangman' Day, when the signal man o'"  the railroad bui'ding Unshed the me-  enge that pa.ivd by .way of the shoi  tower down town to the newspaper ot  ficea inPark' Kow, aiul a murmur .in tin  street  echoed   t'l-j   falling   of   the  drop  f, the birds would break ~ into a merrj  ' peal until the parrot, a peevish and pro  fane bird (the records are quite agreed  about him), would be startled inti.  speechless indignation.  Old Curry..-.mounted the narrow stair  upon which'.his step fell with the nervous emphasis of energetic old age. At  the top of thc flight a tin sign lnhellec  the law ofliecs-of D.lrrnd IM. J. Curry.  Martin Curry looked up from hi-  ���������desk as his father came in, then.wenr  on with his writing. In the corner warn thin hoy with red hair who was In  boriously devising shorthand character^  on  tue margin  of a subpoena.  "Got that tTanscript!" asked Old  Curry of the hoy. \  "Yes, air." '  The old man snt down at his aes������  and drew a package of papers from hir  docket.  "Tanner!"   called   Martin,  "take  this  Over to Dolan'a."  The boy began to gather himself on'  of  the  old  chair.  "Come, come!" g-rowled Martin ii  ritably. "If you ever expect to b< ���������  stenographer pi lhe Supreme Court  you'll have to get a, move on you." And  the boy disappeared hurriedly, produf  ing a sound beyond the door as of fall  ing downstairs.  The musty office grew quiet agair  The noises from the street were punctated by an occasional scream from tb  parrot in the bird store. , Old Curr,  arose and hestwed his papers in th.  yellow-brown so f e.  "Johnny Kells has heen getting int  a. row," he remarked.  "Yes" returned Martin, "and San.i  ler"s been in here and retained  us."  "The deuce he has!" snorted th  oM. man.  "And he's mad asI thunder; want-  blood. It's about Sandler's mule, uie  Kells ���������"  "Martin," interrupted the fatlre.  "we can't.take the prosecution."  "What do you mean  by that?"  "I mean that I've just agreed to lool  after Kells���������not half an hour' ago.  That's simple enough, isn't it?"  "But I tell you that Sandler's jusi  been here���������been in the office; we've  talked the thing over and he's left a ie  tainer."  "I can't help that," declared the aenio.  partner sternly, "I've passed m\  word."  "So  have  I,"   the  son   fretfully  persisted, "and talked over the whole case  ���������taken the price from him, and prom-  _iaed _to_be_at   Slotc's  in_the  morning  when the case is called." ~  Old Curry made an impatient gesture.  "I suppose we couldn't drop Sandler  could we!" he demanded. ��������� ;.���������;  "Yes, I suppose we could if there was  any sense in.it. But we havn't anything against Sandler. . He's been :n  here and'acted square with us, and I  can't see what we should drop him for.  That's the wnjr it stands with inc. I'd  like to see this ofllce run.on busincs*  principles."  "Would yout" thundered the old  man. "Well, .keep.it up. Have all the  business principles you want. But let,  me tell yon that I'm going to represent  Johnny Kells.'?     - ...f  Young Curry looked up inflexibly  but 'with an uneasy glitter in his eye.  "I don't suppose I oan prevent you."  "And-if Sandler is to be represented  from this office you'll have to do it on  your own account."  "I could do it," admitted Martin in a  faard tone. "If it had to he that way 1  could manage it. Tlte crowd over there  wouldn't ask anything better. There'l'  be a   fine  laugh  all  round."      "���������   -  "If you're at all sensitive about that,"  delivered Old. Curry from his desk  "there's a way out!"  Martin stood staring through thu  hack window, from which he had a sor-  , did and depressing prospect. - He couljl  hear the .parrot swen.nng downstairs  The father made ready to leave the 0/  flee for the .day. .:  As Old Curry was going out Mnrtir  swung about and asked dryly, "Is it th  widder?"  But 01d> Curry slammed thc door and  almost   knocked    backward    down  of  the  Urn  steps  tho  future   stenographer  Supreme Court. ,  Curry tho younger arrived at the'office in tire morning soon after Tanner  ���������had corrrpleted certain mystical parses  with ft feather duster which in the  youth's mind wero associated with. an  tneonsciiuent obligation.  Martin  spent some  minutes  In  stu-iv  of the New Code of Criminal Procedure  Of late years consulting the authorities  had been Martin's particular duty.' Old  Cuny's eyes were not the good servants they once had been. Moreover  the old man's patience had been long  since exhausted by the facility with  which legislatures deface the noble  monuments of law. In cross-examination the senior partner was a tower of  strength, and in the slimming up he  worthily kept alive the traditions of the  stalwart past. His citations were uncertain, nnd his temper uneven, but  juries believed him, nnd judges remembered what he Iind been. If Martin  sometimes winced at his father's loosei  technique, he lrnd seen juries quail and  tho bench unbend. Ue admired hia father.  Having finished Iris examination of  the Code, Martin plated the volume orr  .a corner of his father's tnblo. Just  then Old Curry came in.  The old man opened nnd rend his letters without anying a word. He picked  up lire Code mid peered al it for 11  timo. Then he wlievhd aborrt irr Iris  chair.  "Are J-ou still -for Sandier?" ho  asked, with an nneoeciliatory lightness.  Martin was actually irr 110 muod to he  obstructive, could lie hnve seen his way-  out. But no shiidow of compromise rp-  poured in Iris father's-tone, and at that  moment the door swung open.  "Mornin'," said 11 huge, round-shouldered man with short,' bristling gray  hair, who loomed against the dark batik-  ground of the passage.  "Come in," motioned Martin. "I'll he  ready in a minute."  Sandler had already lumbered in.  "I suppose it's about time t' git across  the way," ho ' said. ''How are yer,  Dant" he added on seeing the senior  partner, and continued, with the effect  of addressing the two of them, "ThereV  one thing I forgot t' tell you ahout this  mule "  "I guess you'd better, wait till I get  out of hero," interrupted Old Curry.  "You needn't tear yourself away,"  observed Martin, hut Old Curry had  gone...'  Sandler looked puzzled. "What's * tht  matter with the old man?"  "The   trouble   with   htm,"   answered  ���������Martin, "is that he's going to represent  the other side."  "Well, I'll be���������   You don't mean ������������������'*  "Yes, I do.   I mean "just that. Johnny  Kells has got him."  Plainly Sandler was dazed as the}  descended, to thc street. On the steps oi  the Tombs he remarked grimly, "I can't  see what Dan's gone back on me for." .  , They entered the shadow of the, gray  Egyptian corridor, and. turned to "he  right into the police court, passed fee-  tween the spectators'. benches, and took  seats within the inelosure. Behind the  deBk at the end of the room sat Justice  Slote, who at this, moment was asking n  woman in a group hefore the railing  "Would you like me to hang him  madam?"  Presently Slote, whose mustache was  dved a sinister bluish black, caller"  "John Kells."  Four men stepped to the bar; Kells  a short, thick-set, alert man, with an effect of .restrained pugnacity; the eldej  Curry; Martin, a diminished version o!  his father; big Sandler towering ove->  all.  "Well," said Slote, taking up the pa  pers, "what seems to be the trouble 1  . . . 'detain' with intent to defrauc  deponent .' . .. one mule of the valuf  of forty dollars.' . . . Kells, you an  charged with grand larceny."  "To which he pleads not guilty," an-  iwered'Old Curry quietly, adding, "anc  if your Honor please, I must move tc  dismiss the complaint on the ground  ,that it describes no crime, the com  plainant's redress, if any, being obtain  able by civil action."  "The gentleman has evidently forgot  ten,". Martin spoke up with some pres  mre of quiet, "that provision of thc  -.few Code whicli describes detention a;  larceny, for which the' defendant U  .-riminally liable. Your Honor will sei  hy the, papers-���������"' .  Justice Slote laid down his pen. "Yoi  gentlemen' don't seem to be very well  agreed in this matter."  "Perhaps," suggested Martin with i>  strained smile, "your Honor doesn'l  understand, that we appear on opposit'  sides in this case."  "I���������I see," said Slote, with signs 01  not being at all clear. "On opposite  sides." He had known the Currys foi  twenty years, and the situation naturally struck him as peculiar. ��������� He. indicated by his later manner that it als<  struck him as amusing. In the mattei  of Old Curry's motion, he remarked thai  it was denied.1 The Xew Code distinctly  characterized such detention aa lar  ceny.  Old*Curry shrugged his lofty shout  ders, jind sremed about to speak, wher  Slote pushed-for\vard_an~open~copy-o!  the Code, decorated with drosses, index  lingers, and other marginal aids.  ,The old lawyer, without looking at tht  000k or at his son, remarked casually,  "I understand there is some doubt as tc  the value of thia mule."  "���������There ain't no doubt ahout it," broke  in Sandler; but young Curry, subduing  his client, very.deliberately moved io  amend the complaint so that it might  read "twenty-four dollars," and Old  Curry grinned under his bristles.  ��������� The change made the charge one ol  petty larceny, and sent the case to Special Sessions instead of to the Grand  Jury in the County Court. Martin had  no heart for the ordeal of the County  Court. "I'd rather pay yoii tho difference myself," he afterward growled to  Sandler.  It was thus that the case of The People'1 vs. Kells came to trial in the adjoining chamber of the Tombs two days  later���������came to trial with the father on  one side and the son on the other; with  Sandler, big and fierce, to the fore, and  'Johnny Kells defiantly amiable first to  .last."';    ��������� ;  They called it a memorable day in  that: Egyptian cavern (the Bridge of  Sighs opening on the left), not alone for  the trial itself���������whicli was, after all, but  A short affair���������but ��������� for the audience it  evoked. Four aldermen had come in  with:Supervisor Jo Budd; and the Dolan  boys, ' under Sheriff Shane, shuflled  tlirough the door after Wuh Lung, the  Chinese interpreter, tossing the last of  a cigar behind the rear benches. Here  too, was Coroner Croker, and the grea'  criminal lawyer Stenthorne himself.  It was not remarkable that Malstcd,  fattest of the three magistrates who occupied the bench, should awaken from  his doze and mutter to Corwin, "What's  Stcnny doin' here?"  "Dunno," roturncd Corwin, "unless to  sec the fun in the Kells case."  After it was over, word went about  that the Mayor and the District, Attor-  ucx.had been. 3eatcd loathe, outer crowd.  MOt \Tl-:i)  INFANTRY  ' ^.Snapshot taken at Indian Head Assiu  iboia.  WW  At all events the world seemed to  have learned that Old Curry and his  son were to fight a case in the Special  Sessions. The place would hold no more.  Even the co'rridor creaked with tho  would-be spectators, so that it was a  momentous matter for'Old Curry to get  in, and to make a path for the Widow  Kells, who was a resplendent person  that day, her black silk rustling richly  as she struggled to her seat within the  rail, her tumultuous bonnet shimmering  gayly in the grim place.  Big Sandler made a significant grimace when he saw the widow come in,  and Old Curry before her making a  path. As for Martin Curry, he had no  atomaoh for the business from thnt moment, though a high rebellion of battered pride remained with him to the  end. The justices had no disposition to  hurry matters. The mere situation,  quite without regard to the details, was  too entertaining. Martin Curry knew  this so well that he became nervously-  eager to finish the affair before it had  begun, and he was as curt in his examination of big Sandler as if that  large person had been a hostile witness. Moreover, he was sure of his  case, pie ruling of the examining justice had fortified himl Detention was  larceny. There was the end of the mutter. He had an angry pity for the old  man, who must come to the end of his  rope before long.  Sandler told the simple story of the  mule; of its purchase from Kells; of his  later finding of the animal in Kelts'),  stable near the Bend; of his demand for  the delivery of the mule, n demand made  in peaceable terms; of Kells's outrageous "strike" for money, arrd his own indignant refusal to pay the same; of  Kells's criminal wrthaolding of the mule  to the present hour.  Old Curry arose in jrreat pomp for lire  cross-examination. He was as little in  hasta as the court itself. Yot his quc-  tions were few. - Sandler admitted hi-  ignorance of the precise manner in v.-liici>  the mule came to hc in Kells's stable.  He admitted that Kells's demand fp;  money was in the form of a hill fo:  feed. But the prifce���������two dollars���������*.������.v  exorbitant and ridiculous.  "Did  you    see   the   mule   in    Kell.v*;  stable ?".' a3ked Old Curry.  "I did."  "How did he look?"  "Look?"���������Sandler stared.  ."Did he look as if he had'been well  fed?"  Tm * no judge of looks," retortoo  Sandler, "or I wouldn't have bought  him."  "He wore a cheerful appearance?"  "I , dunno, I wouldn't call him a  cheerful mule, hot by a good sight. He's  an ugly beast. Kells knows, that. If  I'd known what I know now ���������"  "Never mind the MPs,' Mr. Sandler.  I'm asking you whether the mule looked  as if he had been abundantly fed. He  _wasn'_t_emaciated, was.JheJ"  "He looted just~ as" ugly~aa~usualf-  snorted Sandler.  "Verj* well.   Let me ask you���������do vou  know how much  that mule can eat in  fifteen hours?"  "No."  'You never happened to give him nl'  he could eat, did you?"  Martin was on his feet cxpostulatim:  *'H your Honors please, are wc to lv  insulted? 1 .-ubinit that the question i-  grossly   irrelevant.".,,  Old" Curry frowned, and the Cour  asked the purpose of the question.  "My purpose, if the Court please, i  '0 show that this man Sandler-���������"  "I* object to counsel's phrase."cri.;  Martin Curry, "lt is highly improper.  The old miin nodded. "Counsel witi  draws the phrase.

The Court doubted, hut ndmitted Hi  tcstimbny^bn probation.  Sandler,   eager: to   answer,   then   d-  '-dared that he had given the mule neavi;  twice the quantity of  feed he gave hi  horse.  I   ''Orvly   twice?"   asked   Old   Curry   in  pressively.  "Nobodv could give that mule all lr:  wanted," hlurted Sandler.  "Yju admit that j-ou gave him Ies.  than he wanted?"  "I gave him a proper amount," declared Sandler. "I t-hr..k I understand  my business."  "That may be, my friend,'' murmurer.  the questioner solemnly, "but you don'i  understand this mule." That ia thc saf!  feature of the situation, as I shall show  the Court later on. And I shall not ask  you another question."    ���������   ���������til.   ~   V  ie:*-E 'rod to recogniVin��������� the mule Iher-  detained ns the riiule Sandler had :i\\nr-  for 11 rt- days.

"lie wasn't wearin' notliin' just then."  Corwin suppressed the gsmeral tittci  with a bang of the, gavel.' A vast dyed  mustache saved Iris own dignity.  Old Curry's lips twitched.-'"He didn':  loo}; hungry, did he?"  "1 never seen him look no other way."  announced   the   witness,     and     Corwin  brought down the gavel once more.  "Did   you" ever, see  hiin   while -Kells  iwncd  him?" ''.''-  "Xo."  "Voir mean, then, that he has alwa.%  ;ookeJ hungry since Sandler has owrim'  iim?''  "I' object!" shouted Martin. "Tin  3ourt will decide what the witne.-.  means."  Tlie objection was sustained. Old  Ourry waved his hand,- the little man  ������teji|)cd down, and the case for the prosecution was closed.  "And now, if your Honors please,**  *nid Old Currj-, "deferring a motion to  lismiss this extracirdinarj' complaint, j  .will place before vour.

"But since he had come back," and  Old Curry raised his hand,, "since he  had come back, half starved, you felt a  humanitarian impulse to give him all ho  wanted?"    '  "I did."  "Not to mention," added Martin, "an  impulse to feloniously withhold him from  thc custody of the owner."  Old Curry flared in a way to suggest  that his rather mellow manner had its  limits. The widow and all the worli1  were looking on.  "DrivelI" he said.-  The cross-examination of Kells was  brief, the old man having broken in  with, "We admit possession. The mule  is still with us." : The case seemed to be  closed, when Old Curry arose, and remarking, "I call myself as a witness,"  took the stand, solemnly affirmed, and  deposed:  "Pl called on Mrsl-Kells on the afternoon of April 7.
