The sun, so chary of his visible presence these winter days, showed a smiling face Wednesday morning, Feb. 6, just long enough to assure the blessing to the bride of the evening, then hid again behind a grey veil of soft clouds and occasion-al snow flakes,

About seventyfive friends and neighbors assembled at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J . K. Tilden to witness the marriage of their only daughter Jessie to Mr. R. D. Bancroft of Sparta.

Packard and Lulu Austin, and lastly the bride. To the strains of the wedding march played by Miss Anna Maynard they to<ik their places under a canopy of white prettily decorated with sn ilax and c!owned with a floral horae ahoe. #

In a brief but impressive ceremony, the two lives were made one and a new home created.

It goes without saying that the bride and her maids with their while gowns and bouquets of rosea formed a lovely picture. The guests were received by Misses Pattie and Agnes Perry and were served to an ideal wedding supper by Mr. Claude Lane, Mrs. Arthur Moore. Miss Edith Mange Mias Allie Chamber?, Miss Bessie Tate, and Miss Nina WUner.

Thedining room waa prettily decorated in amilaz, roses and carnations.

The bridal pair were recipients of many beautiful gifts. They left on the evening train for their new home in Sparta follow-ed by a crowdof young friends and showers of rice.

The bridegroom is a railroad man and the train men quickly took in the situation und the promise of their not being allowed to ^forget their |>osition waa apparent. Congratulation s and good wishes of a howt of friends follow them aa they are both well known, the bride having been at one time a teacher in the public school ' id i ho groom for a long time telegraph oper-ator at the D. t M. station.

Concerning the Johnson-Duval matter narrated at length in our last issue, later reports were to the effect that i j r s . Johnson-Duval had notified the Maccabee officials at Port Huron of her first husband's reappearance and withdrawing her claim for insurance. The press dis-patches stated further that Johnson left Fort Smith, Ark., under de-monstrations of violence by a crowd of Duval sympathisers and afterward telegraphed to Fort Smith with drawing his charge of bigamy. Mrs. Johnson-Duval immediately started divorce proceedings against Johnson.

(Copyright, 1901, by Louis Klopsch, N. Y.) Waahlngton. Feb. 3.—Thoro Is a

great solace In this discourse of Dr. Talmage fo r those whose lives have many anxiet ies; text, Isaiah III, 10. "Say yo to tho righteous that It shall bo well with him."

Hero Is a promise for people who are all r ight , but who will come and get It? How many, or ra ther , how few. people do you know who are all r ight? If It were asked of any assembly tha t those who were sinless should ribo up. none would rlao except Imbeciles ami religious cranks. An accident happon-od near sixty centurlcs ago that s tar t-ed the human race lu the wrong way, and we have not got over It. We know a great many splendid men ami splen-did women, but they will tell you tha t they have not always done the r ight

' th ing or thought tho r ight thought . If It were any of your business, they could give you an Inventory of frai l t ies ftnd mis takes and Infelicities tha t would be astonishing. Here, then, you say, la a Bible promise tha t goes a-b g-glng. "Say ye to the r ighteous tha t It shal l be well with him."

M o r a l l l a n k r u p l c y . By sin we have all been morally

bankrupted . Christ the Lord f rom his Infinite r iches pays our debts and em-paradises us in his mercy. From his r ichest wardrobe he puts on us the clean robe of his r ighteousness and gives us a place In the heavens when wo are ready to go up ami take I t Now, as to our spiritual estate we are all r ight . We were morally diseased, but Christ , the Physician, by a b t t h In the fountain of his grace, cures us Now, as t o our spiritual health we are all right. That Is the way we come t o the righteousness spoken of in the text . It Is a contributed righteousness, a made over righteousness, an imputed r ighteousness. The moment you get Into r ight relations with Christ the Lord t ha t moment you can appreciate t h e magnificent comfort of the text, and I defy you In all this great book f rom the first verse of the first chap-te r of Genesis to the last vers? of the laat chapter of Revelation, to find me a passage with higher and deeper and broader and longer comfort than that of the text, which is as d̂ cp as the At-lanUc ocean half way between the con-t inen t s and high as the sun when the clock Is s tr iking 12 at noon. But I shal l be swamped with the oceanic t ides of th i s subject unless the Lord help me to keep a foothold. "Say ye to , t he r ighteous t ha t It shall be well with h im."

B l c b e e a n d G o o d W o r k s . How many men do you know worth

1250,000 who arc devout and consecrat-ed and humble and generous and em-ploying their means for the world's re-dempt ion? You could count them up -on the fingers of your two hands even If by accident or war you had lost one or two of the fingers. As to the realm ^)f personal attractiveness, how many women radiant of countenance and Kraceful of form do you know who are unaffected and natura l of manner and deeply pious before God, using their beauty for the bet terment of the world And not for selfish purposes? I only t ake the risk of asking the question And leave to you the risk of answer ing I t These things I say to show you t h a t In order to have the promise of the text fulfilled In your case It la not necessary you have phenomenal world-ly success.

M i s e r y o f L o v i n g T o o M u c h . Financial loss, which I Just now said

Is su re to como, never breaks up a man who has strong faith in God. In most cases it la a loss of surplus or It Is the banishment of luxuries. Most of the wan t s of the prosperous classcs are art if icial wants. The late Mr. Armour of the 160,000,000 estate pointed to one of h is clerks on ordinary salary and sa id , "Tha t man has better appeti te t h a n I, sleeps better nights and enjoys l ife more than I do." Oh. the gigantic miser ies of those who have too much! A m a n in Solomon's t ime expressed as philosophic and reasonable a wish as any man of those times or of our times. His name was Agur, and he offered a p rayer tha t he might never have a superabundance or a deficit, crying out, "Give me ne i ther poverty nor riches." On the one side he had seen the awful s t ruggle of the poor to get food and clothes and shelter and to educate t he i r children, and on the other side he had seen the gouty foot, and the In-digestion, and the Insomnia, and the anxie ty about large Inres tments , and t h e th rea ten ing paresla of ten character-ist ic of those who are loaded up and down with too many successes. Those people who are generally called the masses— that Is, the most of f o l k s -have the t h ings absolutely necessary fo r their well being. They have no Murlllos on the i r wall, nor a "Belshaz-

erable Is because they do not let well enough alone. Thoy are in one occu-pation and see Its annoyances and so change to onother occupation and find as many annoyances. If not more. They live in one place and know its uncom-fortable environments und move Into another place which has Just as many limitations. Thei r "Investments yield them 4 per cent and they sell out to make investments that will yield 10 per cent and lose all. Better settle down and stop fret t ing about yourself

An officer In Cromwell's time was so worried about public affairs tha t ho could not sleep. His servant, a Christ-ain man, said ho would like the privil-ege of asking tho officer a question. Leave being granted, the servant said, "Do you not think tha t God governed the world very well before you camo into I t?" "No doubt of It," was the re-ply. "And do you not think he will govern it «|uito as well when you are gone out of i t?" "Certainly." " T h e n -pray, sir. excuse me—but do you not think you may trust him to govern It aa long as you live In It?" The remark was so sensible that sleeplehsness de-parted and tranquil i ty came.

A part icular Providence Is as cer tain as a general Providence. It did not Just happen so that Brunei noticed a ship-worm boring Into the wood, so suggesting to the engineer tho tunnel-ing of the Thames. I t did no t Just happen so t ha t a spider 's web s t rung from tree t o tree suggested tho sus-pension bridge to its first or ig ina tor . Nothing Just happened so in your life or mine. I t is not an au tocra t a t the head of the universe, but a Father .

A n U n l h n l l e d S u p p l y .

Do any of us fully realize the fact tha t God gives us three th ings In un-limited supply, a l though no formula of prayer tha t I ever heard recognises them—water, air and sunl ight? Water by the r iverful . Water by the lakeful . Water by the oceanful. Some for ablu-tion, some for slaking the thirs t , some for bapt is t ry , some for founta ins and aquariums. I never appreciated w h a t a wonderful th ing water is until las t summer I stood by the founta ins be-fore and around the emperor ' s palace a t Peterhof, Russia. 1 had been fami -liar with this wonderful element of nature f rom childhood, having been born on the banks of the beaut i ful Rarl tan, and as a barefooted boy dab-bled In the brook near my fa ther ' s house. But I never realized until last summer what water could do In play, or In s t range caprice, or beautlficaUon, or when climbing the ladder of the light, or when a skillful workman took hold of It to toss It, or whirl It. or

1 shape it Into crowns, or hoist It Into ! columns, or spring It Into arches, or

l i f t It Into stars , or t u rn It Into cres-| cents, o r build it into temples. You | forget you ever saw the less glorious

waters at Chatsworth, England, or Versailles, France, as you stand in tho balcony of the palace overlooking the Finland gulf, bewildered and t rans-ported as you look a t t he one display called the Golden Sta i rway fountain. The wate r rolls down over 24 steps one foot high and 20 feet long. All of these 24 steps are covered wi th sheets of burnished gold. Silver step of the water on stairs of gold! What a glee of l iquids! Rolling, dashing, foaming, enrap tur ing splendors! Chorus of floods! Poetry of waters! Doxology of tor rents ! But tha t which most im-pressed me there aud elsewhere Is the abundance of water, t he fact tha t there are so many waters t ha t the conti-nents can afford to throw them away into the sea. Hudsons and Chios, Ore-gons and Amazons, Rhinos and Dan-ubes and Volgas, and so abundan t that t he ear th can afford to have Its oceans evaporate Into the heavens. Mediterraneans and Atlant lcs and Pa-clfics. How rich the ear th Is with wat-ers! Best beverage of all the nat ions , for a f t e r the richest banquet with the r ichest beverages, every one wants a t least a sip of It—water, cool water. God descended water !

With still more abundance Is the a i r distr ibuted. An ear th full of It. A sky full of It. Swiftest and s trongest eagle cannot fly so high as not to have it in tho nostril or under wing. And what affluence of sunl ight! No one but the Infinite God could dispense so much of It. The golden candlestick set on tho blue mantel of the heavens! So great t ha t the Almighty Is com-pared to It, the psalmist crying out. " T h e Lord God Is a sun ." I t Is high t ime that we recognize in our l i turgies and in our formulas of prayer the most abundant blessings of the universe which come to all.

T r u s t T h o r o n g h l y In tiod.

Now, Is It not t ime that we all be-gan more thoroughly to t rus t the Lord? We t rus t him with our souls, why not t rust him with our bodies? We trust him with our spir i tual Inter-ests, why not t rust him with our tem-poral Interests? We believe what Is

I could not anger you so much or make your cheeks so burn with Indig-nation as to doubt your t ru thfulness , and how do you suppose the Lord of heaven and ear th feels when you doubt him, as ho declares In the text,

Ing limited to plain food, t h f y do not "Say ye to the righteous tha t It shall suffer f rom midnight salads and are not victimized by r a re caterers .

be well with him. Such a promise as tha t ought to calm your pulses and Ir-radia te your countenance and halo ail the fu ture with rapture ; for, a f t e r all. It makes but little difference what be-comes of us here, if we come out at the r ight plact amid the right surround-ings and in the r ight companionship. W h a t are the twenty or eighty years of terrestr ial s tay compared with tho

gin when we quit this Insignificant I planet, Infllgniflcant as compared with ! the size of other worlds? This world ' is only a school house for heaven. We ' learn here only the A 11 C of a higher j l i terature, or the simple addition and subtraction of an Infinite mathemat ics and are practicing the eight notes of an eternal harmony. The most lm- | por tant question any man ever asks Is, i "Wha t will be my destiny?" "Whi ther j am I bound?" "Where shall I land?" " W h a t is tho terminus of this short | Journey?" Now, child of God, do not | worry about that , it shall be well with you in your next s la te of exls» 1 en co.

The World iteyond ThU, Some scientists are now discussing j

tho opening of communication between our earth and the planet Mars. Experi-ments are being made, but they will not succeed. Wo cannot build a fire ! large enough to a t t ract the at tention of that world or l i f t a lens powerful j enough lo see any response Interstel- ! lar. We do not positively know t h a t that world Is occupied by living be-ings or that If It Is occupied communi-cation with them would bp desirable. It might not bo so good a world as this, and thus communication with it would be debasing. But I rejoice to know tha t heaven is in touch with other worlds for their improvement and a depot for glorious arrivals, i t Is a thor-oughfare between this world and tha t world and a coming and going perpetn-al. Going out of this world is as na tura l as coming Into It, but tho one Is with pang and the other Is with rap-ture If we are fitted for the uplif t ing process. It shall be well with you. Now do not gel so fr ightened about tha t as thma or that cough or that In-fiuenza or t ha t threatened pneumonia, ' i he worst th ing that fatal disease can do is to usher you into coronation and enthronement . It shall be well with you. Take as good care of your health as you can, have all sani tary laws, keep In this world as long as you are permitted to stay and then when tho heavenly call comcs be glad to go. I do not care much about what your " las t words" are going to be. People put too much emphasis on "last words." I would r a the r know what your words a rc now, In days of health, and with mental faculties In ful l play—your words of kindness, your words of sym-pathy, your words of helpfulness, your words of prayer. So live tha t If you say not a word dur ing the last day of your life there will be no doubt here about the place of your destination. You will go right Into saintly, pro-phetic, evangelistic, apostolic, cherub-ic, seraphic, archangellc, delfic pres-ence.

In Heaven. It shall be well with you. Mother,

you will go r ight up Into the posses-sion of the babe that the scarlet fever or croup took out of your a rms , a sorrow tha t still s t ings you, and you often say she would now bo so many years old If she had lived. You will go Into the presence of the old folks, for I hope you are of Chr is t ian ances-try, and you will find tha t they have nodlmness of slght.or ha l t ing gai t that requires a staff, for they have taken a draf t f rom the founta in of perpetual youth t h a t springs f rom under the throne of God. Oh, the blissful com-panionship of heaven In which you shall enter . I t shall be well with you. 1 ring this bell of emancipat ion and t r iumph. I like the way the sexton rings the bell of the old country meet-ing house. I used to s tand and admire him pulling the rope of tha t bell. He rings It a good while, so t ha t every farmhouse within five miles hears It. He may halt a moment to t ake breath and give the swet sounds t ime to st ir up all the echoes of the hills. And when he ia old and not s t rong enough to pull t he rope any more, then he sits and l istens while his son r ings tho church bell. So my text seems a bell of Invitation and vic-tory. I began to r ing It in tho opening of this discourse. I hope to r ing it as long as I live, and may those who come a f t e r us keep on r inging it till those fa r thes t off from God shal l come Into the grea t temple of gospel comfort and all the weary put down their burdens a t Its a l tar and find t ha t peace which the world can neither give nor take away. Three t imes more I r ing i t It shal l be well! It sha l l be well! It shall be well!

A friend of Charles Dudley Warner has said t ha t It Is "a cheerful spirit , and a t rue wit, and a sweet humor" tha t we find In all the recently de-ceased writer 's works. No one will be disposed to question the fairness o£ this crit icism; If Mr. Warne r was not a grea t wri ter , he was a del ightful one, and his books have the gentle charm of a companionable woman. Far handaomer, however, and equally true, is the aame f r iend ' s t r ibute to Mr. Warner ' s character :

"He was completely a gentleman. He lived a religious life, but said lit-tle about It. He regular ly attended his church, respecting and obeying Its ob-servances. 1 never heard from his lips an Indelicate or coarse story, or an unclean Idea. He abhorred Injus-tice, meanness and dishonor."

A man 's books may not always speak the whole of his mind; his life does. In spite of himself.

One hundred years have elapsed since the birth of the nineteenth century. T h e history and the ac cumulated knowledge of thousands of years were behind it.

Eighteen hundred years had elapsed since the commencement of the Christian era and two thousand five hundred years had passed since Greece with her wonderful history, her warriors and statesmen, her science and art, her philosophers and orators had furnished examules along all those lines, that are models to-day. W h e n the eighteenth cen-tury waa about to die, as tho nine-teenth is now doing, gatherings, feastings, watch-night meetings ushered in the new century as we are doing. Whatever the fu tu re may bring forth, the nine-teenth century . will—must be— looked upon as a turning point in the world's history. In material achievement i t has surpassed every century tha t preceded it. In scientific investigation and discovery in marvelous mechanical inventions it hag added immensly to the powers of mankind and completely changed their habits.

The Twentieth Century! The age whose dawning has been the hope of seers and the inspiration of poets is here. The old—the 19th century, takes its place on the long roll of* the eras that were; history will deal with it henceforth.

I t has been a great and glorious century, f a r excelling everything the wildest imagination oonoeived at ist beginning. More progress has marked i ts history than occurred in the history of all that preceded it.

U p to its beginning mankind had been engaged for generations in making up lost time. They were trying to get back to where the Romans stood in tho time^ of Christ. They had inventions, print-ing, the steam engine and the com-pass. These contained the elemenU of a great advance; but the advance had not been made. I t was lef t to the 19lh century not only to utiliie these elements and develop their possibilities, but lo add new and more wonderful factors which make up the product of advancement, oiviliration and education of to-day.

It has availed itself of its op-portunities, i t has raised the general level of oivilization, above that of Greeoe and Rome.

We are now where a new and incomparable advance can be made. The way has been cleared, inventions which were in their infancy on Jan. 1, 1801 or perchance uever had been dreamed of, are now full grown.

W h a t was then done by muscle, we now do by steam and electricity. We have abolished distance. A thought can be transmitted around the world in a moment. To-night we read or might have read of events which occurred at our antipo-des at noon. We oan cross the ocean in 6 days or be sped across the continent a t the rate of 60 miles an hour. T h e business man can com-municate with his agent at New York, San" Francisco, Honolulu, Liverpool or Hong Kong at will or lalk with him by phone across the street or continent if he chooses.

To enumerate even the most im-portant inventions of the century such as have changed the conditions of mankind is a hopeless taak. They enter into every detail of l i fe, doing everything that human hands could d o with immeasurably greater speed, strength and accuracy. In every domain we find t h e same re-markable progress.

The enumeration of the dis-coveries appliances and new elements would here be out of plaoe. As a result the average of welfare and comfort is incomparably higher than of any earlier [jcentury and the im-provement consists mainly in what has been added to the power of each individual. The 19th century can claim to be the age of soienoe. Here as before enumeration is hopeless. I mention spootrum analysis, correl-ation of forces, conservation of energy. I t has changed electricity f rom a toy to a servant of humanity. I t has substituted fo r the tallow dip and odorous, sperm oil lamp of fifty years ago the kerosene lamp, the gas l ight , the incandescent and arc l ight of to-day. I t haa supplanted the stage coach by the locomotive and the trolley, the' carrier pigeon by the telegraph and the leech and lancet by antiseptics.

Since the dawn of the century knowledge, theoretical and applied, has increased in geometrical ratio. I t s accumulated power and energy unde r the laws of the conservation of energy makes the dawn of the 20th century the most brj l l iant of the ages.

W i t h the vis viva of the 19th century, behind i t and impelling it , who can conceive of the advance-ment to be made dur ing the 20tb

ccivabie that is not possible? Then again. T h e h is tory of the

19th century is a history of educa-tional progress. Progress in in-vention, science (and by these 1 mean every department for the good of mankind in which man works) is but the resultant effect of brain energy—of brains cultivated, disci-plined, trained to do their best work—to direct their energies lo a given problem and hold them there unt i l i t i« solved. In our schools have been conceived the germs, the latest ideas, the aspirations and the inspiration which haa developed tho inventor, the engineer, the physicist, the chemist, the great editor and the great states-man. Our methods of education have been resolutionised since the beginning of the 19th century. The same rapidity of development that j characterized every thing else had its first inception here. T h e ordin-ary graded school of to-day is superior in every respect to the academy of 100 or even 60 years ago. Our city schools furnish faoilities for obtaining knowledge far superior t o those afforded by Brown, Yale or Harvard 100 years ago.

I t is difficult to realize the progress made in the educational world dur-ing the last 100 years.

When the present century dawned our elaborate system of instruction in America was not even dreamed of by the prominent educators of the day. The old fashioned sohoolmaster with his hickory withe or birch rod was the leading exponent of school methods. He worked out his own system, pounded into the pupils his ideas and graduated them with a slight working knowledge of the three Rs. , bu t with l i t t le of the broad culture of the high school of to-day. Now the teachers of the country form par t of a mighty, thoroughly equipped army, every department of their work is a systematized, every teacher is in a sense given special work for which special train ing is required. Combiaed mental powers, push und progress have placed the ability of the educational forces of to-day as compared with those of the first half the century, as the limited express with its mighty and vestibuied oars thundering over the steel rai ls a t 60 miles an hour compares wi th the old t ime stage ooach floundering over crossways and through the mud a t 4 miles an hour. The state with its normal schools, its university, its con-ventions fo r t h e interchange of ideas and comparison of methods, furnish-es an educational Wes t Po in t from which recruits fo r this noble army can be drawn. Not alone the state but every h igh school and college throughout the world furnishes them. The work of this army is continuous. Dur ing the summer months when our publio schools are closed, many avail them-selves of the opportunities for special preparation provided a t colleges, universities and sum-mer resorts thus adding to their efficieaoy and usefulness.

W h o then shall say tha t the his-tory of the 19th oeniury with its unparalelled record of achievement is not a recital of advanoement in education, or tha t the advanoement itself in every line is n o t t h e direct product of educational develop-ment? Beginning in the early part of its history in the li t t le log school house of pioneer times, inoreased by the academy, still far ther de-veloped in the college and univer-sity, tu rn ing ou t into the world young men and in later years, thanks to t h e progress of oiviliiatiofl, young women, with minds disciplined to fill every avenue of pfofessional and business l ife, trained to use their intellects along the lines to which they were adapted. Capable not only of con-ceiving an idea but able to carry it out. These are they the product of the common schools, the colleges and the universities whioh have made the history of the 19th century the mighty force tha t ^as made the 19th century the greatest of all since the world began.

N o w as the old century is yielding up its l i fe to be known hereafter as among the things tha t were, let us rejoice tha t we have been permitted to live in it , to see i t close. Let us hope tha t the impulse it gives to the century now dawning may make i t still, grander in all that^ is for the betterment of humanity. Let us hope tha t «'Beyond the oen-tury 's swinging portal, breaks the new dawn of a thousand years . "

tog member of the F'anshaw household, un-ippreclated by any of the othera, aa .e hi* brother David. The preceding aummer be had saved the life of Evelyn, second daugh-ter of Col. Hasbrooke, the county's great-

Cit planter, and whoae splendid home waa nown as "Carnlelgh.'* CHAPTER II. - At Carnlelgh. James

Hardy, a Charleston cotton merchant and suitor for the band of Caroline, Has-brooke'a eldest daughter, and Cap t Winkle, an admirer of Evelyn, are gueau. Evelyn s school daya over. Ronald meets her by chance, whan aha again tbanka him for the flght be bad made with the angry bull which had threatened her life. She la glad of rebuke be had given Winkle, but a few mlnutea before, who had conde-icendlngly thrown him a coin for a little flatilng bait.

CHAPTER m.—Konata, reranrrair-nonie with hla brother, Is overtaken by the Haa-brooke trap. Winkle, holding the relna. tries deliberately to ride Ronald down, the trap coming so near aa to knock the basket in his band to the ground. Ronald determlnea to have satisfaction. r i n g in a f#w m o m e n t s ; ' w e c o n ' g e t ready and a t I ts first s t roke we may tu rn and fire t i l l t h e revolvers are empty or one of us Is down."

Winkle s tared fixedly. "Why, t ha t would be deliberate mur-

der , " he gasped, sh r ink ing back a s tep or two f r o m the extended revolvers.

' I t would not be any more murder than death in any duel would be, Capt.


Winkle. If you do not fight I shall know tha t you are a coward, sir ."

Then an idea was born in the officer's almost benumbed brain .

" I cannot fight a—a man in your po-sit ion in—In life." he said. "Surely you know w h a t is considered proper ."

Ronald's face g rew purple wi th sup-pressed rage.

"Do you mean t o tell me t ha t you may drive a ca r r iage over a m a n in a public road and then resort to such a petty bub te r fugc to get a rounc the con-hcquenees? Capt. Winkle, I would str ike you i n . t b e face if I could keep

f rom feeling t ha t I was s t r i k ing a

baby." Winkle gave a fu r t ive glance towards

the house. He looked sl ightly relieved n« If he though t by t h e tacit confession of cowardice he waa going to escape a duel, which he f ea red qu i t e as much as dea th itself.

"You may th ink what you please of me." he said, " b u t I am not will ing to fight a duel wi th you—of course, con-sider ing all t h e c i rc*mstances ."

" I see y o u r p lan , Winkle, "said Ron-ald. "You have insul ted me in the pres-•nce of others, and if you avert t roub le wi th me, you leave the witnesses under

the impression t h a t I yielded t o t h e indigni ty w i t h o u t a m u r m u r . Tha t , I see. I must bear ; but I assure you. in your re fusa l to fight me. you have re-lieved my mind, f o r no coward can In-sul t me. '"

Winkle began to breathe more free-ly; he even allowed a def iant smile to play about h i s l ips as he took a ma tch f r o m his pocket and rel ighted h is cigar .

"As you please." he said, wi th a s l ight suggest ion of a eneer. " I cannot fight

you ." "Bu t I am not t h r o u g h wi th you."

Ronald burs t out , f laming up again. "You are an officer in the pay of my count ry ." l i e had t aken a penkn i fe f rom his pocket when he res tored the revolvers to t he i r places, and he now deliberately grasped Winkle 's coat and cut off the top bu t t on .

"Wha t a r e y o u do ing?" gasped the officer, pul l ing back.

Tak ing a firmer g r a sp on the lapel, Ronald jerked t h e capta in back t o where he bad stood. "Stand s t i l l ! " h» t hundered . "You are unf i t to w e a r the un i fo rm of any count ry . You'd make a ga l l an t soldier in t ime of need, would-n't y o u ? "

Without ano ther w;ord Winkle stood still and allowed Ronald to sever f r o m bis coat his bu t tons and shoulder s t raps.

"Now good morning, cap ta in , " was the p a r t i n g in junc t ion , "if you ever dare to drive over me again, I shall sim-ply s t rangle you ."

As if afra id ano the r word might fur -t he r enrage h is an tagonis t , Winkle re-treated towards the house, t ak ing long, swif t s tr ides.

Ronald siood for a moment wa tch ing the walk towards t h e house, t hen still holding the bu t tons and shoulder-s t raps in his hands , he sank on a rus-tic seat nea r the spring. His passion had alread}- spent itself, and a s t r ange revulsion of feel ing came over h im.

He had d rawn back his hand to throw the bu t tons and shoulder-s t raps into the h igh grass, when he heard a clcar, r ing ing voice behind him.

"Don't t h r o w t h e m away," and Eve-lyn Hasbrooke. he r big whi te apron filled wi th maiden-hair fe rns and wild flowers, emerged f r o m behind a th ick

hedge. Before he r words had died out he

was on his feet, speechless wi th sur-

prise. " I heard every word ," she said, wi th

a sigh, "and at first I was almost f r igh tened to death. I was go ing to in te r fe re if he hod—had accepted your

challenge, but when 1 saw tha t he did not in tend to fight you I remained si lent . I was an eavesdropper—I con-fess t ha t—bu t I s imply hod t o l is ten. I t was real ly t e r r i b l e - y o u r voice— y o u r l ooks ! "

Ho w a s ovcrwhelmod wi th confu-sion. .

" I feel as if I could never b e par-doned, Miss Hasbrooke," he m a n a g e d to say, a f t e r a l i t t le pause. ' 1 a m on y o u r g rounds and Capt . Winkle is t he gues t of your house."

She shrugged h e r shoulders and »at down on the seat h e had j u s t l e f t .

" I a m going t o say what I rea l ly would not say if It were not all set-tled between you, Mr. Fanshaw," she w a s p u t t i n g t h e s t e m s of h e r f e r n leaves toge ther in h e r left hand , "and t h a t is tha t I do not b lame you much ."

"You do not r ea l ly?" For a moment she gave h im a fu l l

g lance from her deep sympatho t ic eyes.

" I did t.ot sleep a wink las t n ight , Mr. Fanshaw. I w a s so a n g r y wi th him tha t I could no t close m y eyes. I came near ask ing my f a t h e r t o send him away. F rom a man 's s t andpo in t I p re sume you have done all t ha t can be done ."

He sat down by her. " I never let my temper get t he oesf

of ice. Miss Hasbrooke. wi thout feel-ing dissatisfied wi th myself . I re-f ra ined f rom s t r ik ing him when I f o u n d he would n o t fight, bu t w h a t I f inally did was? jus t as bad." Ho was looking at t he bu t tons nnd shoulder-s t r a p s in his hands .

Evelyn laughed soft ly . " H e may not have any more bu t tons

l ere in the coun t ry , " she said, "and he may have to discard h is favor i te suit fo r awhile."

" I did it in n spasm of uncontrol-lable anger ," w a s Ronald 's defense.

"He deserved more than t h a t slight humil ia t ion," she smiled: "and ye t you mus t not t ry t o conquer the divine in-clination you now have to pity him. It shows you a r e t ru ly noble—noble!"

Ronald blushed to the roots of hia

ha i r . "When he refused t o light me." he

soid. " I ought to have lef t h im. I th ink I could if h is reasons f o r no t fighting had not been qui te so exaspera t ing . "

"I am going to help you about the bu t tons and t h e •hou lde r - s t r aps . " an-swered Evelyn. "I have a maid who can hold her tongue. 1 am going to get her to borrow the cap ta in ' s coat f r o m his room, and I shall res tore bis plumage."

He smiled, a new light in his eyes. " I really t h i n k 1 should like t o have

you do it, if you will." said he. "He will wonder who did i t ," she

laughed, "and I half hope he will sus-pect me of knowing someth ing about i t ; he is t i resome in all th ings, but h t has more to say about his courage than a n y t h i n g else."

Ju s t then the p lanta t ion bell rang. "Oh, you men are awfu l—awfu l ! "

she went on. g rown suddenly serious. "If Capt. Winkle had been of a Affer-

ent type you would have been ' shoo t -ing at each o ther a t th i s momen t—" she checked he r se l f ; t h e r e w a s a tense Ico*k about her lips. "You would have been in grea t t roub le ( fo r no m a n can escape i t who has killed ano the r ) . Then he might have t a k e n y o u r l ife."

He understood, nnd his h e a r t beat wildly.

"If h e had been of a d i f f e r e n t type, he would not have t r ea ted m e as he did. and I should not have been here th i s morn ing ."

She gathered u p her ferns and flow-ers and rose.

" T h a t is qui te t r u e , " she rejoined, with a look towards the house. " I m u s t be going now; good-by."

She took t h e b u t t o n s and sleeve or-naments f r o m him, and p u t them Into her pocket, and then held ou t her hand. "Good-by." she said again.

W h e n Evelyn reached the house and had entered the g rea t hall she called to her maid. Marie, a mula t to girl , to t ake core of he r f e r n s and flowers.

"Have you seen Capt. Winkle this morn ing?" Evelyn asked.

The maid laughed impulsively as she filled h e r h a n d s with the d a m p green th ings .

"Yessum. I seed 'im, an* he acted migh ty s t r ange . I never seed o man act so quor in my life." Again Marie

laughed. " W h a t do you mean, Mar ie?" "Wellum," answered t h e maid, " I no-

ticed ' im go out f u r his walk to 'ds de spr ing, an ' I would er be t m y life d a t he had on his b r a s s bu t tons an' de straps on his shoulder, kase I seed nm shinin' in de sun; he was smokln ' an' walkin' as chipper as or game rooster , but abou t fifteen minutes ago I seen ' im sl inkin ,

Marie giggled again. She had, w i th Ihe usual perspicaci ty of her race, divined t h a t the officer w a s not in high favor wi th her mistress .

At this j unc tu re Capt . Winkle, dressed f rom head to foot in snowy duck, came down the f i o n t s taircase, and, bowing to Evelyn, be went out on t he veranda. Without speaking aga in to Marie Eve lyn t u rned in to h e r o w n room to t ake off her d a m p apron.

She decided tha t she would, la ter in the day. ask Marie to ge t the capta in 'a coat.

In Osborne, county, Kan., t he Repub-lican nominee for county « o m m i u i o n e r died suddenly at noon t lect lon day. His death became known, but the Ro-publlcans. not knowing w h a t else t o do. went ahead and voted for the dead man and defeated his Populist oppon-e n t by a major i ty of fifty-two votes. The Kansas courts are now called upon to decide whether tha t defeat will s tand, whether a dead man can beat a live man for oflice.

Some time ago a man died In Blair county. Pa., leaving an esta te amount-ing to 115,302 and no heirs. I t was escheated to the state, but In the pro-cess of get t ing Into the s tate 's hands .

The use of oysters has sometimes been discouraged on the ground t ha t they were under certain condit ions dangerous mediums of conveying dis-ease, especially germs of typhoid fever. Now physicians a re said to have for-bidden another relish nearly as pop-u lar a t this t ime of the year. Celery has come under the ban of the doc-tors, Who say t ha t it is equally well adapted to t ransmi t t ing the poisonous element of the soil and c a r r y l n r the germs of typhoid.

Some intereet ing and valuable addi-t ions have recently been made t o the Bri t ish zoological gardens. One is a lizard possesslag two tai ls . As is well known, the l izard avoids capture by leaving ita tail in the hands of Its captor, the caudal appendage ul t imate-ly growing again. In th i s ins tance i t appears tha t t he ta l l of t he lizard be-came damaged by some means, but was not detached. A second ex t rem-i ty protruded f r o m t h e wound, which healed, so t h a t now the lizard pos-sesses two tails. Another unique ad -dition is the three-s tr iped California tree boa.

Two orders to Brit ish officers which seem mutual ly contradictory were re-cently issued on the same day. Mili-t ia officers In England were com-manded to learn and practice sword exercise several t imes a week. Com-missioned men in South Africa, on the contrary, were ordered to dispense wi th swords In action. A sword makes a n officer a Sbioing mark for the ene-my ' s bullets. Thus theory and prac-t ice disagreed, as Is of ten the oaae. T h e flring-Iine test of parade-ground equipments and disposit ions some t imes leaves, for the t ime being, l i t t le of the t radi t ional in act ive service.

The duties of husband and wife are distinctly defined among the Kafflrs of South Africa. The husband doe* not expect his wife t o build the kraal , or b u t Tha t is hi* work. I t takes f rom flve hundred to a thousand young trees to make the beehive kind of dwelling which is in favor and which is excel-lently adapted for protection.

I t is made from millet and mealies, and is mild but intoxicating. Until quite recently everything was carried on the head. A Zulu woman will carry 200 pounds of mealies In this fashion. When a Kaffir was first seen carrying a load by the hand Instead of on his head, tbo Dutch thought It a dangerous Imita-tion of European fashion. Women have so fa r asserted themselves aa to refuse to hoe the mealies for plant ing, but they will weed. A woman goes about with her baby tied on her back, r M I e she rocks herself and croons to It. When a man dies his widow may, If she chooses, become the wife of his brother. She stay* a t thb kraal , and all the children, Including those of the new marr iage, are held to belong to her eldest son, who takes his fa ther ' s place aa guardian, and has the privil-ege of using, supposedly for the com-mon good, all tho wages of the young-er sons. I t thus sometimes happens that a l i t t le boy Is head over his mother and older sisters. If tho widow does not choose to mar ry the brother , but t akes another husband, she loses all control of her children, who stay In their fa ther ' s kraal .—Youth's Com-panion.

Mrs. Poole is thorough.y deserving of this great honor. Her devotion to the interests of the Asso-ciation i* very marked, and her experi-ence with tne old soldiers of the G. A. R is wide. Mrs. Poole is never slow to t ake advantage of any th ing tha t may benefit the veterans, and her seal ha* re*ulted in much tha t Is good to these grand old men. She write* of he r experiences: "Honor to wnom honor i* due. and having seen the nu-merou* cures effected through the use of Dodd's Kidney Pills, I gladly en-dorse them as being particularly e f -fective to cure tha t dreaded disease of so many of our old soldiers.

Author of General John Jones, elc. (Copyright. 1901. by Dolly Stery Pub. Co.)

When the fog crept toward the land from out In the lake they did not no-tice It. a t flrst. so absorbed* were they —she In what he was saying, he In his own passion. Their little boat had long been dr i f t ing aimlessly, fo r he had shipped bis oars and f rom the center scat leaned forward eagerly, peering keenly Into her face as he

•poke. As fo r her, one could not be sure

whether her manner of Indifference wa* born of coldness or whether the rigidity of her features was a mer« mask, concealing emotion racing fleet th rough all t he courses of her young blood, but of which her feminini ty would not permit betrayal .

She leaned back In seeming languor among the down cushions his fore-though t had provided for her comfort and *ave t ha t he r whi te and lissome finger* played unceasingly with the red and white striped cords which moved the toy t i l ler of t he l i t t le boat , she did not move. Only when now and again she raised the downcast lashes which curtained he r da rk eyes did this Impatient floccillation cease. Then the nervous picking of her madonna fln-1 ger* would grow still and her deep glance would rest full and unflinching-ly upon the face of the man before her . There was In th i s glance, so proud and high and free, something which subtly. Indescribably thrilled him. Nor could his own endure It long, for when she raised he r eye*, his fell, abashed—and at those times the f an tas t i c shadow of a n Inscrutable smile fled across her lips and vanished

Instant ly. So nea r together were they t ha t he

coula have stretched for th hi* foot and touched the shoe whose sh in ing pat-ent lea ther t ip escaped the hem of he r blue flannel skirt . Once. Indeed, he had leaned far forward and put out h i s hands appeallngly as If to grasp


he r own. But she had drawn back swif t ly , releasing tho tiller ropes, and folded her a rms across her breast with a firm a..* forbidding dalliance.

H e had drawn back sullenly, and now for a moment had grown s i l en t I t was then the fog had crept upon them so stealthily nei ther had per-ceived Its coming till Its chill shroud wrapped them. The woman shivered, lightly, and drew he r wrap more close-ly about her shoulders with a quick feminine gesture. H e r look was bent Snatched up the oars and hurled them

f a r out • • • upon the disappear ing shore, half a mile away, where the piers and sum-mer-t ime pagodas, the diving tower, the big hotel, of Manha t t an beach, de-serted now tha t November had laid Its rude clutch on au tumn, told In their echoless silence of the waning year.

Now the mournfu l voice of the hood-ed *iren, perched a lof t where t h e mouth of the sluggish Calumet yawned sleepily to the vaporous lake, sound-ing to tho fog-bound sailor, rose through the mis t In minor.

"Hoo! Hoo!" It said. "Hoo-oo, Hoo-oo-oo." A t inge of melancholy menace dwelt in the s t t f im monotone. One thought of Loralel and hidden •hoal*, of dark and s t reaming ha i r and •yea which looked but saw n o t T h e

young man s ta r ted guiltily as the siren raised Its voice. Already the thickening fog half concealed f rom hla eyes the l i the figure of the girl huddled In her wrap and cushions. H e leaned to her again and spoke huskily. "Fal ice!" he said, appeallngly.

Her voice seemed cold to him as she answered, but a keener ana lys t than he might have discovered a t r emor in it that was not glacial.

" W h a t Is it, George?" she asked, with seeming steadiness. "Again? I thought we had left all t ha t behind us. far away, and were going now to bo good fr iends and comrade*. Can't you take my word for It t h a t there is finality In what I have told you?"

"No, I can ' t ," ho cried out, s ta r t ing to his feet so fiercely the little craf t rocked dangerously. "Nor will I try. With me it shall be today or never. And with you, too," be concluded,

ominously. The girl looked a t him from the

clouded depths of her rare eyes with something which might have been a scornful tenderness.

"Forget It. George." she paid, not unkindly. "You have had my no. and you must t ake i t for your answer ."

"Fal ice!" he cried again, and took

a step toward her. She raised both hands as if to ward

his coming and straightened her bat-k against the s tern of the shrouded boat

WKn an Impetuous gesture the young man drew back and, stooping, snatched up the oars and hurled them far out Into the wall of fog.

"There ," he hoarsely shouted a t her, as if In desperate defiance of her per-versity. "Since you wish i t so. we will indeed end it all, but together,

not a p a r t " He sank back moodily into his seat

and clasping his hands moodily about his knees stared at her gloomily through the fog.

Falice had star ted up with a l i t t le cry as he threw the oars away. She knew too well wha t t ha t meant . They had become a helpless derelict, supine on the silent, glassy water. ui.ab'.e


Then she threw her round arms about his bent neck • • •

even to creep to safety toward the shrouded voice of the mourning siren. But she too sank to her seat and was still. The fog grew denser. Now a swi f t rush of wind rippled the water and st irred the t iny craf t unea*lly. Tho lake grew volceful beneath Its sombre man t l e of dull gray a n d with a paddling tongue licked hungr i ly the seams of the oar less b o a t Every minute the siren sounded to the gloom Its I t e ran t "Hoo! Hoo!" T h e w a r n i n g call seemed now fa r ther away. The gir l bent her head but remained un-

tongued. George rose un*teadily and stood 1

on t rembl ing legs in the rocking boat. ' A th i rd t ime he spoke her name. There wa* the l ight of a love-born f renzy In bis blue eyes and he drew his fine figure upward as one who h a s formed a grea t resolve.

"Fal ice ," he said. "You say you lore me. You say you cannot mar ry be-cause I have no ambit ions. You charge me with Indolence. You even laughed and said i t is un t rue the g i an t sloth is extinct. Well , we will end I t

Come." He held out his hand imperiously.

Th is t ime the girl looked up. His manner made his purpose clear.

The wind had risen higher st i l l and now whistled shri l ly about them. The boat was dr i f t ing. Fal ice looked s t ra igh t before he r through t h e breeze-swept alleys of the fog and across her face once more flitted t h a t unln ter -pretable shadow of a smile, so swift ly evanescent . She held ou t he r hand to George and put her foo t upon the gunwale as he did his.

"Come!" he cried again—and they leaped together, hand In hand . The line* of hi* mouth had g rown grim and atraight , but the girl, who looked behind him, hard ly could conceal a tender tear fu l laughter .

As they splashed fur iously into the rippled lake the breeze swept the l ight boat away and ins tant ly Its keel grated upon the beach. A moment, aa they sprang, he had, r epen tan t sought to stay the girl, but it was too late. They entered the water together—and then, stood erect. I t reached her waist. With a passionate gest ' i re he drew her to his arms, there In the ocompassing water and kissed her fondly, all un-resisting. Then she th rew he r round arms about bis bent neck and hurs t in to hyster ical sobbing Interleaved with ribald laughter .

H e looked a t her rueful ly . Then he . too, laughed, but his laugh was honest and like t h e l a rk ' s m a t i n song.

"Come," he said, and unclasping her c l inging caress and t a k i n g her in h is s t rong a rms he sturdily waded up t h e shelving beach to shore.

"Let us run, Falice," he cried gaily. "Let us run to the parson ."

She felt for his hand once more and let hers nestle there.

" I t wa* because I loved you so ," i h e eald, answer ing a question whhrh no voice had a sk id .

"Hoo! H o o ! " cried the *lren. Jaun-tily, a* they ran away together , cla^p Ing hand*.

" I am so nervous and wretched." " I feel as if I should fly." How familiar these expressions a r e ! Little things annoy you and make you irritaole. You can' t sleep, you are unfit for ordinary duties, and are subject to dizziness.

That bearingdown sensation helps to make you feel miserable.

You have backache and pains low down in the side, pain in top of head, later on a t the base of the brain.

Such a condition points unerringly to serious uterine trouble.

If you had written to Mrs. Pinkham when you first ex-perienced impaired vitality, you would have been spared these hours of awful suffering.

Happiness will be gone out of your life forever, my sister, unless you act promptly. Procure L y d i a E. P i u k b a i i T s V e g e t a b l e Compound a t once. It is absolutely sure to help you. Then write to Mrs. Pinkham, a t Lynn, Mass., if there is anything about your case you do not understand.

You need not be afraid to tell her the things you could not explain to the doctor—your letter is seen only by women and is absolutely confidential. Mrs. Pinkham's vast experi-ence with such troubles enables her to tell you just what is best for you, and she will charge you nothing for her advice.
