MONROE ALBERT L. FORD One EVELYN SPENCER "When a vilkigu of 1,400 inhabitants can boast of six widows, five old s inaids you may take it that that com- munity is "going some." Such was the case with the village of Jrand View, and when a stranger Twould refer to the rival village of Spring Valley as having two butcher shops he was met with the reply: "Yes, sir, I admit that she has. but Tvhere are her widows and widowers :and old maids and old bachelors? She liasn't enough to count on two fingers. If you are looking for a home, sir. go no further than this, where business is always steady and real estate on -- bachelors, sis widowers and five old the boom." ' -- There was a flaw in the armor, though strangers did not get on to the fact While these four classes of people were residents, there were no marriages between them. The catch among the combined widowers and bachelors was Abraham Gunner. He was a bach. He was the wealthiest I3e was popular. AH of a sudden Abraham received a drop letter at the postoffice. It was written by a woman who said she .and loved him and hoped he .would not judge her too harshly for her plain statement of fact He might Ticv.'r le to know the writer, but . treasure it in his heart that at least held him above all .i. wom.-.other n:':i in the world. Abrah.an scratched his ear and grin- ad-inir- ed ned. "Who the devil can it be?" Abraham 3iept repeating to himself as he worked about the mill, but wondering and .guessing didn't bring the solution. That evening he didn't appear at the drug store to play checkers. lie remained at home to read that letter over and over and try for a clew. Of course no married woman had written him thus, and as lie was forty years old and made no secret of it the marriage-.abl- e girls in town would pass him by. "It's some one giving me a josh." was .Abraham's conclusion as he quit speculating and went off to bed and to sleep. On the third day thereafter he received anot'"r letter from the same person, li .u aiau full of admiring terms. It was not likely they would ever meet, the unknown wrote, but she was strangely and strongly interested iin his welfare. As a bachelor, lie must live a more or less lonely life. As a husband, lie would have a comrade and companionship. As a boarder, as he had been for years and was yet. he knew nothing whatever of the comforts of a home. It was hoped he would give the subject all due consideration and, in case he decided to enter the bonds of matrimony, might he take to the altar such a. bride as a good man deserved. "By thunder, but that's a darn good Tvotnan. whoever she is!" exclaimed Abraham as he read the letter. After ten minutes he read it again 31 ml mused: "Who can it be? Who can it be?" "Say. okl man, you must have heard some bed news." was the greeting he igot from a dozen friends in the next, .throe days. "Wliat makes you think so?" ""Why. your face is as long as a caneis. and you were going right past without speaking!" It was almost a week before another letter came. Same handwriting same womanly interest in his welfare. "And has it ever occurred to you." was one of the paragraphs in the letter, "that a man situated as you are is selfish not to marry? It would relieve jQt least one woman from her cares nd struggles. It would ndd one more household lo the many." "Dy John, but I'd propose to that woman in a holy minute if I knew who he was!" exclaimed Abraham, and when he reflected that he didn't know and had no way of finding out he "wanled to kick over chairs and call his dog names. Five hundred people a day called at the itostofiice. flow could they all be -- "Jim. I heard you are going to be married." "Where did you hear that?" "Oh. I heard it a month ago! I think it was on Thanksgiving day. I dined with the Atwaters. They said Clara Webster was just the girl for you, you being impulsive, she steady and cautious." "Did they say that?" "Yes." "Listen. I have a little story to tell you. On the very day. Thanksgiving, that these persons were attributing these traits to us a little drama was being enacted. "My friend Billy Smithson invited Clara and me to spend the Thanksgiving week end at his house in the country, which he opened for the occasion. The affair was got up to celebrate our engagement, for Billy is an old chum of mine, and his wife is an intimate friend of Clara's. "Clara and 1 were to go up on the train together, but just as I was about to leave the otfice to call for her a job came into the otfice which nobody but I could do. and I was obliged to remain over till the next day. I telephoned her to go on and 1 would arrive the next day. I reached the house the next afternoon to find the guests gone out ou an automobile ride Billy had got up for them. There were three carloads, and they were not to return till 7 o'clock. About G 1 dressed for dinner and was going downstairs when I met a man coming up with a suit case in his hand. Presuming he was one of the guests who had just arrived. I went on down into the library, thinking no more about him and amusing myself till the auto party returned. "This was the evening before Thanksgiving. The next day we were getting ready for the feast when Clara took me off into a quiet corner and said to me. ' v " 'Will, I have a very unpleasant communication to make. On returning from the auto ride yesterday several of the girl guests missed articles of jewelry. Several boxes in which thr jewels weie Uopt were found in iiu doset in your room." "Naturally I was a bit upset by this information, but the principal cause was that Clara didn't say this with my hand in hers or her arms around me, but sitting apart, and instead of adding that she felt just absolutely confident that I was not a thief she looked very gloomy and waited for me to say something. "'Clara. I said astounded, 'do you mean to say that you have the slightest suspicion that I stole these jewels?' ' 'It is the bouuden duty of every one," she replied, 'to consider an accused person innocent until proved guilty. And as your fiancee I feel obliged to do what I can to influence the others to give you every opportunity to clear yourself." "It was not so much the position in which I was placed that troubled me as the Knapping of the cord that bound me to Ciara. In a twinkling my feelings toward her were changed from attraction to repulsion. And yet find with her? what v fault could What- right had to expect her to believe me innocent in face of such proof against me and before I had brought forward any proof in my favor? She was simply acting on that trait in her character for which those persons you have mentioned on that very day were giving her credit "'This change in my feelings toward her for awhile overrode every other. Then the gravity of my position rushed upon me with full force. But what could I do? Ignorant as I was of how the jewelry boxes got into my closet. I didn't see that I could do anything but leave the house. "I went to Billy, who begged me to stay, saying that there was some mystery about the matter which he hoped would be cleared up. but I judged that he didn't know what to make of the matter, and at last he agreed with me that I might as well go.

"I have come with your daughter Jennie's consent to ask you for her as my wife." The gentleman looked at the young man before him. evidently framing a sentence to crush him. When it came it was like a bolt from heaven. "You, a steeplejack, marry my daughter! Do you think me a fool? What kind of a business is yours anyway? You risk your life for $30, perhaps, and when you've done it once you do it again. You go up a spire in the presence of a gaping crowd. Do you suppose they would be watching you if it were not for the probability of seeing you tumble down and get mashed into a jelly? And what kind of a life would your wife lead? She would be in constant expectation of seeing your battered remains brought homo in a wagon. "Many my daughter! No, sir." Billy hung his head and said nothing for a few moments. Then he looked up and asked: "If I abandon the ancient and honorable steeplejack business for some other would you give your consent?" "The occupation is ancient and not dishonorable," was the reply. "If yon want my daughter and she wants you or she wouldn't have sent you to me you'll have to look up in the matter of an occupation. My must fly higher than being a steeplejack. It's too late for you to study a profession, but you may yet make a business man of yourself. There are many occupations far more commendable than that of climbing steeples." "It doesn't do for a man to waste his time learning to do things and then abandon them. Suppose I should become proficient in something as 1 am in climbing steeples and you should not be satisfied with it. and then I learned something else, and then" "You engage in something above steeplejacking and you may have Jennie, provided it pays you enough to support her." "All right Mr. Wilson. I'll try to flv r than steeplejacking." The last words were not heard by tlie elder man. lie had no confidence in Billy's ability to make a living at anything except the line he had fallen into and felt perfectly safe in agreeing to give his daughter to him provided he could support her by a more acceptable occupation. Six mouths passed, and Mr. Wilson heard nothing more of his would be climbing lie kept an eye on his daughter and was reassured at not seeing any evidence of dissatisfaction on her part. lie was congratulating himself that she had forgotten the steeplejack man when one day she said: "Papa. I want you to take a walk with me this afternoon." "A business man take a walk in the afternoon?

Miss Atwood furthermore suggested that he come over and attend to the matter himself. The artist she referred to was a rising man in his profession and would probably require a good price for doing the work. Mr. Atwood. gathering the pictures in his possession, sailed for Europe and one day turned up in Paris. He was at once taken to the studio of Clarence Whiting, the artist, who was to paint the portrait Mr. Whiting looked over the photographs carefully, asked which was regarded as the best likeness of the original and remarked: "We portrait painters see resemblances more readily than other persons. To me Miss Atwood is very like her mother. But I cannot tell whether the varied expressions of her face are like her mother's, for a photograph has but one expression, and that is apt to be unlike anything ever found on the face of the original. Unfortunately 1 have never seen Mrs. Atwood. I will undertake to paint the portrait from the photograph you like best, enlivening it with Miss Atwood's most pleasing expressions. In other words. I will make up the portrait from both mother and daughter. I admit that I am much more likely to fail than succeed, but if I succeed the result will be gratifying to you as well as to me." Mr. Atwood was favorably impressed with this and asked the sum that would be charged for the work when finished. Mr. Whiting replied that, since he would be unable himself to judge of his work, he would make no price until he learned if the father and daughter pronounced it a success. The matter being disposed of. the artist took the photograph of his subject most approved of by the others, and it was arranged that Miss Atwood should rrtvo llj?vl .Mis. yorn1-- AH Persons Who Are Behind One Year on our Subscrip tion Books Will have to Come off, Under the Law, if not Paid at once The Government Will Not carry Papers in the Mail for Parties who Owe More than one Year l The Louisville Daily Herald And the ittiTlX.

The gentleman was persuaded, and 1 lik-la- g ly found themselves in open ground. They strolled about for some time when suddenly Mr. Wilson, shading his eyes from the sun with his hands, said: "What a big bird that is over there!"' "I think it's coming this way."

Mr. Whiting looked for it in the father and. not finding it. concluded there were many chances in favor of it having been inherited from the mother. He determined to paint the portrait, giving the life period of Mrs. Atwood about the time she died and the expression referred to. Mr. Whiting worked a long while before he produced what pleased him. making drawings innumerable before beginning to paint. Miss Atwood rarely assumed what he was trying to catch and put on the" canvas, and this materially caused delay. At any rate, the painting of the portrait seemed to require a very long time. Mr. Atwood. whose presence was required in America, became impatient. At last a satisfactory drawing was made, and after that the work was comparatively easy. More time was spent in smoothing and softening the lines, but Mr. Atwood was assured that a time could be set for the finishing, no was not permitted to see the picture while it was being painted, and it was not till it was framed and set up in a proper light that he was admitted to the studio, where it rested ou an easel. Whiting and Miss Atwood both watched for the expression on his face when he should see it. knowing that success or failure would be expressed there. The result was success beyond their expectations. The widower's face lighted up with an expression never seen there since his wife's death, and he involuntarily put out his arms as if to clasp her. a living being. After feasting his eyes on the picture he drew a check book from his pocket and asked the artist what amount he should fill in for the picture. Whiting glanced at Miss Atwood and saw there a sign which he seemed to understand and said. "Pardon me for a moment: I will make out a bill," and. going to a desk, he sat down, wrote something on a bit of paper, held it before "Miss Atwood's eyes; she gla need an approval, and he handed it to her father.

No dome or gigantic telescope greets the visitor when he gains the summit A huge Noah's ark of canvas destroys all preconceived ideas of what an observatory should look like, and within three wonderful mirrors take the place of the great tubular telescope of other observatories. The observatory building is constructed of canvas, the sides being set In the form of tiers of steeply overlapping eaves. This arrangement is calculated to allow for perfect ventilation by a vertical wall and is of canvas, which can be raised or lowered at will to obtain an even temperature. The peculiar arrangement of mirrors that replaces the familiar telescope is the center around which all interest in the observatory revolves. These mirrors are constructed at the Yerkes observatory and are the finest products of the optician's manufacturing skill. The enlarging mirror, which is supported by a pier of stone at the farther end of the building, is of concave glass four inches thick, and the sclen- inch tists tell us It is of twenty-fou- r aperture by sixty foot focus. The glass is polished ever so often with jewelers' rouge upon pads of chamois skin and is burnished every week or ten days, in order to remove all possible dust In addition a galvanized cover is kept over it when it is not in use.

Material From Both Coal and Vood Has Fertilizing Values. As the time approaches to clean up ash pits and bins and to distribute ash piles it is well to remind farmers and gardeners of the value of this product. When conditions are favorable It is most economical to spread the ashes where they are needed through the winter, as then none of the fertilizinc properties are lost Even coal ashes may be put upon the land if the coarser portions are raked or sifted out, and these clinkers will serve as drainage or foundations for walks about the barnyard and poultry yard. Chickens also find something they want in the ashes. Fine coal ashes may be worked into a clay soil with the very good effect of rendering it more porous as well as supplying some of the chemicals necessary to the growth of plants. For fertilizing the lawn nothing is better than fine wood ashes, but if distributed during the winter and early spring the result Avill be almost too heavy a growth of grass, necessitating very frequent mowing. The application of two scuttles of hardwood ashes to a tree produced the largest and finest Seckel pears ever harvested from a certain orchard in St. Louis county, Mo., the fruit ripening from day to day during sis weeks. All small fruits and orchard trees are benefited by a treatment of ashes, and borers that work around the base of the trunk of trees are almost entirely prevented from entering the bark. A moderate amount of ashes and soot worked into the soil around roses greatly increases the richness and brilliance of coloring in the blossoms and makes fine foliage. Care must be taken not to loosen the roots, as roses like a rich, firm soil. The scrapings from the barnyard if there be a cow, the droppings from the chicken house, with ashes, will supply almost all the enriching for a place of two acres. Farm Progress.

Concrete is as cheap as lumber for building purposes and even cheaper if sand, gravel and labor are largely furnished on the place. An ordinary farm hand will become expert in the use of concrete with a few days' experience. Silos, barns and other buildings made of this material are much safer than wood against fire and storm. The largest part of concrete is the gravel or crushed stone. This should be clean that is, free from loam, clay or vegetable matter. The best results are obtained from a mixture of sizes graded from the smallest, which is retained on a inch screen, to the larger ones that will pass a one and one-hainch ring. For heavy foundation and abutment work larger sized pebbles and stones might be used, concrete work while for pebbles larger than those passing a one in h ring should not bo used. In tno selection of sand the greatest care should be used, and critical atten- tion should bo given to its quality, for to one- Mud contributes from half of the amount of tho materials used in making concrete. Sand may be considered as including all grains and small pobles that will pass h through a wire screen with inch meshes, while gravel in general is the pebbles and stones retained upon such a screen. The sand should be clean, coarse and, If possible, free from loam, clay and vegetable matter. In mixing materials for concrete use two and a half times as much sand as Portland cement and twice as much gravel or stone as sand that is. one part cement, two and a half parts of sand and five parts of gravel or crushed stone. Use just enough water to get the consistency desired. If the sand is very fine tho cement should be increased from 10 to 13 per cent. When the mixture does not have a uniform color, but looks streaky, it has not been fully mixed. If the mixtme does not work well and the sand and cement do not till the voids in the stone, the percentage of stone should be reduced slightly, but the concrete should first be properly mixed. Concrete that is poorly mixed may present features that are entirely eliminated by turning it over once or twice more. Concrete wet enough to be mushy and run off a shovel when being hanwork, thin dled is used for walls or other thin sections. Concrete just wet enouirh to make it jelly-lik- e is used for some work and also for foundations, floors, etc. It requires ramming with a tamper to remove air bubbles and to fill voids. This concrete is of a medium consistency. Sometimes bank or creek gravel, which Avill answer the purpose of sand and gravel combined, can be obtained, and it is frequently used on the farm and in small jobs of concrete work just as it comes from the pit or creek. Occasionally this gravel contains nearly the right proportions of sand and gravel, but in the majority of sand pits and gravel banks there is a great variation in the sizes of the grains and pebbles or gravel and in the quantities of each. This Is due to the fact that all the deposits are formed in seams or pockets that make it impossible to secure anything like uniformity. Therefore, to get tho best and cheapest concrete it is advisable to screen the sand and gravel and to remix them in the correct proportions for the work. one-fourt- start has been made with frame build- the beginning, though hard to change after a be poorly fed this winter, says the Kansas Farmer. When feed is plenti ful and of good quality the cow has a chance to pick the best from a great deal more feed than she can consume, and under these conditions she makes a better showing than she can make in a year when feed is scarce andvvden she is compelled to eat the feed offered, whether that feed be palatable or not. The fact is that the cow must be well fed if she is to produce milk. She must have enough feed to maintain her body and must consume a sufficient surplus to produce milk. This condition prevails always. The animal body cannot adapt itself to seasonal conditions. This means that the dairy cow, if she be profitable, must at all times have such feed as will enable her to produce milk to her capacity. It costs about as much in feed to maintain a cow of low capacity as it does a cow of large rapacity. Figuring on this basis, therefore, one cow consumes about as much feed as another in maintaining herself. The cow which can consume the greatest amount of feed over and above that required by bodily maintenance is the cow which, if she puts that feed to proper use. will fill the milk pail. In times when feed is plentiful the individual cow, whether of low capacity or of the highest capacity, does farms the dairy cow will X ness.

A good fall flow of honey is not an dnmixed good, for careful trials have ihown that there is a superabundance of pollen grains in this honey which does not make it the most desirable for winter stores, and the presence of the pollen has a tendency to bring on dysentery with the bees, especially if they are wintered in the cellar without an occasional cleansing flight, which the outdoor winter protected bees have. This Is a mighty good argument In favor of wintering bees outdoors. In Homemade Drill.

This is said in the interest of people suffering from chronic constipation, and it Is worthy of their attention. In the opinion of legions of reliable American people the most stubborn constipation imaginable can be cured by a brief use of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. You may not have heard of it before, but do not doubt its merits on that account, or because it has not been blatantly advertised. It has sold very successfully on word of mouth recommendation. Parents are giving it to their children today who were given It by their parents, and it has been truthfully said that more druggists use it personally in their families than any sther laxative. es WEDLuwG Girl BiDS OF NO USE.

TAKING CARE THOMAS EDISON Farm arid j RAISING WINTER LAYERS. Careful Study of Breeds Essential to Success. In order to raise winter layers one must know something about the characteristics of the different breeds, the laying periods of which vary, says a correspondent of the Country Gentleman. Some begin laying in five months, others in six, seven or eight months. "When the egg laying characteristics of a particular breed of fowl are known it is easy to raise winter layers. In the writer's experience with White Plymouth Oocks the time botween hatching and the laying of the first egg has varied from live months and four days to seven months and thirteen days. Pullets usually lay a small number of eggs at first about fifteen or twenty then rest a few days or a week, after which they begin to lay again and continue for three or four months or more without stopping.

During the marriage ceremony which united John Dean, seventy years old and a veteran of the civil war, and Mrs. Nancy E. Marks, a native of Alabama, a band passed by the courthouse, where the ceremony was being performed, playing "Marching Through Georgia." As soon as the old man recognized the air a thousand memories seemingly flashed through his memory, and he was so overcome with emotion that it was necessary to stop the ceremony.

After twenty years of gossip, theorizing and discussion regarding the disappearance of the family of James McMillan, one time probate judge of Caldwell county, the officials of the county are to take steps to trace their present whereabouts in the hope of disposing of farm and town property owned by them and upon which taxes have been left unpaid since they disappeared. The property is now deserted and has been long regarded as haunted. The dropping out of sight of Judge McMillan and the subsequent disappearance of his family at various times provided a mystery that' has never been solved. Leaving the county courthouse one evening, the judge, at that time serving his third term in the probate court and reputed one of the wealthiest men in the county, stopped to talk with his most intimate friend, Thomas Laid-law- . livs&Csys WEEKLY HENRY WATTERSON, Editor J .

He and Laidlaw parted a few moments later, and Judge McMillan was never seen again by his family or any one in the county. lie did not leave by the nearest railroad spur, it was found, nor had ho hired any vehicle to take him from Kingston. For a time Mrs. McMillan lived quietly. She received no word from her husband, and inquiries in Scotland proved that he had not been seen there and that no word from him had ever been received by his relatives there. About three years after Judge McMillan's disappearance James and George, his two sons, spent a day about their usual haunts and at night disappeared. They had no baggage of any kind and were dressed in their working clothes. No word has ever been received from them since.

And that is what the round of life means to Mrs. Thomas A. Edbon. She is the ono "boss" that the wizard obeys. They call her "the missus" down at the big graystone works in AVest Orange. Every man in the place knows she is the only person he ever minds. And they know, too, that if his life is prolonged and preserved for the good of the world it is because there stands beside him this quiet, handsome, steady nerved woman with the little smile upcurving her lips. Mrs. Edison is of medium height and rather plump. Iler hair is brown and waves back from her face girlishly. "How do we take care of Mr. Edison?" she answered. "Well, first of all, he needs quiet. We all guard him against any noise or confusion or interruptions. When he is home here he needs perfect rest. Sometimes he stays down at the laboratory for twenty hours at a stretch and longer without sleep, but when he does come home he will lie down and fall asleep as easily as a child and perhaps sleep straight through for twenty hours without waking. So the house must always be quiet for him. "No, he has no regular habits." She answered this with a little smile and shook her head. "No regular habits at all no regular time for rising, no regular diet, nothing .like that. He has been called a vegetarian, but he eats wild game and beef and lamb-o- nly they must be well cooked. "Exercise? Not what other people call exercise. You see, he is on his feet down at the works all day. That is enough exercise, he thinks, so he does hardly any walking outdoors, but he loves his garden, and motoring Is his favorite recreation. We have our ride together in my car every day. I am just going down for him now. We ride for two hours before dinner, and he looks forward to it, for I never let him forget that he must be ready when I come for him." Mrs. Edison is the woman at the switch that regulates the current of his life. that are forming into one big idea, one great working principle that will make j past four winters, regarding the winter months as December, January and February, has been as follows: 1,032 average per Winter of 1907-month, 344; winter of 1908-9- , 1,339 average per month, 446; winter of 1909-11,258 average per month, 419; 1,345 average per of 1910-1winter 8, ers may be helpful. Hens are used for incubating the eggs. Piovided a hen wants to set any time after the middle of February bin--. is put in a Avarm and protected place For prospective winter layers it is well to hatch the chicks as early as March and April. With hens to brood the chicks and with a sunny exposure and protection from cold winds, they need little more attention in early than " later hatching. Xo wet food is given young chick, until they are four to five weeks old. The mother hen is cooped, but the chick, are allowed free grass range. They are fed regularly five times a day until they are about two months old. after that for two months or so four times a day, and from that time on three times a day until winter is over. The young chicks are kept free of vermin by siiii'lo methods, the perches and roosting places are carefully watched for chicken mites, and any indication of sickness is at once investigated. After the chicks are three months old they are fed a wet mash in the morning and a grain mixture consisting of two parts of whole or cracked corn and one part each of wheat and oats for the remaining meals. The mash is composed of four parts by measure of bran and one each of middlings, cornmeal and mixed grains. Occasionally one measure of meat meal i added to the mash to furnish animal protein, though the meat meal is kept in hoppers in order that the young chickens may learn to balance their own ration. Since chickens possess individual tastes, it is better to let them balance their ration to suit themselves. The mash is usually wet down with the wastes from the table. Oyster shell and grit are always kept before the fowlrf in hoppers. A dry scratching pen. free from drafts and well lighted, is provided for each pen of fowls. This is practically Indispensable for winter layers in cold or moderate climates. Grain thrown In the litter will keep the fowls busy for hours. Exercise is very important for fowls that are kept to produce eggs during the winter months. Plenty of fresh water is also essential for laying hens. Fifty fowls cared for In this manner during the past four or five years have given a fairly uniform supply of winter eggs. As a rule the fifty fowls have consisted of from sixteen to twenty pullets, about the same number hens and a few of Careful records show that the pullets during the winter months lay about four times as many eggs as the hens.

He had his own notions as to how a newspaper should be conducted. His plan was to please as many persons as possible. Miss Williams was a "new woman" who was supporting herself by teaching. Mr. Penfield met her and was attracted to her largely on account of her force of character and intellectual abilities. Miss Williams was attracted to Mr. Penfield largely on account of admiration for a man in power, for he was a man of authority, having under him subeditors, clerks, printers, etc. There are as many kinds of newspapers as there are kinds of men. Mr. Penfield's policy was with a view to making his paper pay or what he considered the best method of making it pay. Miss Williams' idea of a newspaper was an intellectual engine to mold opinion. That is what she supposed Mr. Penfield's paper to be. because she supposed that to be what newspapers are for. They became engaged. One of the triumphs of the Union was the election of the governor of the state, for it was generally conceded that the paper's brilliant advocacy of the governor's side and stinging condemnation of his opponent and his principles had secured the election. But when the campaign was over the Union returned to its independence, which meant that it was at liberty to please the greatest number, thereby securing the greatest circulation and consequently the greatest income from advertisements. A question of moment came up. in which the governor took a decided stand. It was supported by many and opposed by an equal number. Miss Williams supposed that her lover would stand by the man if he thought him right and oppose him if he thought him wrong. One day an editorial appeared in the Union, written in the style of the editor in chief.

He had his policy and considered it the only policy on which a newspaper should be run. but he began to feel uneasy about his fiancee. He expected to meet her but did not ' One morning the Bee appeared in a new dress, and the first article on the editorial page was an announcement that Miss Elizabeth William'! had bought the paper and would thenceforward be the editor in chief. When Mr. Penfield saw this announcement a light was turned on in his brain that revealed several things. He knew that by his attempt to please everybody he had disgusted his fiancee. He knew that Mis vril'.i.i.n.! k.;d v, rit . ten the article ridiculing him in And he was destined to learn that there were more ways than one of running a newspaper. When Mr. Penfield met Miss Williams again neither of them referred to their past relation; they met as proprietors and managers of two differenr newspapers. The editress adopted a policy of not troubling her readers with her own opinions, but when she did it was after mature consideration and investigation, and it usually turned out In the end that she was right.

The horses were by this time so wild and the speed so great that it was very difficult to control the one and lessen the other. Not an eighth of a mile distant was the turn in the road, with a gulf a thousand feet deep on one side. The cries and shrieks had ceased with the effort thus far made to regain control, and every eye was fixed on the danger ahead, every breath 'J?4&v ''MM? &M' held in terror. The man on the box kept a firm hand on the reins and pushed with all his strength with his right foot on the break There was a lessening of the speed, but would it be reduced sufficiently to go safely round the curve? The hearts of those whose lives were at stake were throbbing in time with the jumping of the horses. When the turn was reached the velocity was still so great that there was little hope. The women recommenced to shriek. "Stop that!" said the driver "You'll excite the horses." The cries ceased. There was no sound except what came from the horses' hoofs and the creaking of the coach, while every one held with a tight grip to his seat and looked with straining eyes at the gulf before him. The driver guided the horses as near the rock on the inner side as he dared, for should he hit it the coach would be knocked over the precipice.

One of these coaches left Denver one morning, struck the mountains at Golden City, mounted to the highest point and moved on downward and upward alternately toward Georgetown. On the top of the coach a gentleman and his family were enjoying the scenery. The driver sat on his bos trying to keep awake, for he had been drinking, while beside him sat a young man whose costume denoted that he was a resident of the region. The coach reaclyd the top of an ascent, and the road in front wound downward in one of those frequent dips in the mountains. It had begun the descent, and the young man sitting beside the driver, noticing that he had failed to put on the brake, looked aside at him to see what it meant.
