As a man and citizen he measured up to the highest standard. Evtry duty and obligation of life and citizenship were discharged fully and completely. No man ever lived who was truer to his friends than Judge Board, and as this wrltt-mis frequently heard said of him, "the nuhts wire never too dark nor the roadj too long" for him to .serve his friencs As a result he himselt had a host of friends, and was loved and esteemed by all As husband and fatner, he was kind, gentle and indulgent.

Tho camps of favor and disfavor of tho parcel post scheme havo been about equally divided. Finally at tho last session, of congress a bill was passed which will put tho plan into operation, but only it must bo said in little moro than an experimental way. It is tho intention of Uncle Sam to move rather slowly In tho parcel post matter. Ho wants to And how popular it will be, how much it will cost the government, and whether thero is to bo a profit or loss at tho end of each year. If it is found that tho plan is successful from tho point of view of tho people, which means the government also, tho parcel post will bo extended until finally It reaches the proportions which its proponents say they bcliove it is destined to assume. Zone System Explained. It is no exaggeration to say that thousands upon thousands of Inquiries have been made of tho postmaster general as to Just what the parcel post will mean to the people. It waa the law of congress establishing tho system which mado provision for a division of tho country Into zones and Into 35.000 units which are to bo used ns centers In describing tho circles which mark tho boundaries of tho zones. Thero has boon no clear understanding, apparently, of this zone system, but really it Is a very Blmplo matter. Tho accompanying map shows tho country divided into zones from tho unit in which Washington Is situated, as tho center. Accompanying tho map is a table showing tho rata of postago per pound for parcols from Washington to places within all tho zones, By EDWARD B. CLARK. tho coming of tho New Year the zones are drawn. the United States government will en- which of postage aro fixed from Tho tho rates ter Into a now field of enterprise unit in which tho sending postofllco is tho transmittal of merchandise by every place price "With situated, but the to in any zone Is JuBt tho same. To illustrate, It will cost exactly tho same amount to send a parcel from Washington to Eric, Pa., that it costs to send it to Atlanta, Ga., because Erie and Atlanta with referenco to Washington aro situated in the fourth zono. Tho rates therefore aro fixed from tho unit In which tho postofllce is located, but thoy aro tho samo from that office to any point in any ono zono. It will be seen by reference to tho table of rates of postago that it will cost more per pound to send a pack-ag- o a long distance than it does to Each unit contains an area thirty miles square. Now each unit is a center from which tho zones are drawn and so ovory unit in tho country no mattor where It is situnted will linvo zonos drawn from it just oxactly as Wellington has thorn drawn from It For Instance, take Keokuk, la., which Is In a unit In tho fifth zone. From that will bo drawn circles exactly ns they aro drawn from Washington and thoy will bo numbered from Keokuk as number ono, Just as thoy are numbored from Washington as Of course, however, numbor ono. Zono Six will havo a different geographical position as related to Keokuk than It has aa related to Washington, but as tho radius of tho circles drawn from Keokuk is tho satno length as tho radius of tho clrclea drawn from Washington, Keokuk's Zona Six will bo just as far from its center as Washington's Zono Six Is. How Rates Are Fixed. It can bo seen from this readily enough that tho postal rates from Washington to Its particular zono will bo tho same as tho postal rates from Keokuk to its particular zones. Each unit being about thirty miles square will of course contain In most cases a number of postofllces, but each olllco g In tho samo unit Is considered as tho center of tho circles from bo-ln- send it a short distance. Tho rate Increases for a packago weighing ono pound at tho rate of ono cent for each rone. No packago weighing moro than 11 pounds can bo sent under tho new parcel post law. It should bo said right hero that on tho long hauls the parcel post may not bo able to compete with tho express companies, but that on shorter hauls it can so compete. It was tho expressed desiro of the legislators and of tho postofllco officials that tho parcel post system should bo mado of particular use to persons having farm and factory products to transmit to customers. It Is probable that producers must study tho rates of post-ng- e and tho convenience of transmittal and compare them with tho cost and convenience under present methods before Individually a man can determine whether he is to profit or not by tho change. Then thero is another thing to bo considered and which only can bo known definitely hnvo been whon fuller regulations made to specify exactly what kind of things can bo sent by parcel post. It can bo said in a general way that anything can bo sent which Is properly wrapped and which will not Injure othor mail matter with which it may come In contact. Copy Foreign CountrIes.( It ia probablo that tho government will ndopt a monnB of transportation for certain kinds of its morchnndlso much like thoso which have been adopted in parcel post countries abroad. What tho English call arrangements, probbasket-likably will bo adopted, and ns theso can bo kept Boparnto from tho ordinary mail mattor It is belioved that tho regulations as Anally adopted will allow tho sending of eggs, buttor, dress-epoultry, llvo poultry, honey, fruit, and othor products of the country. limit for a slnglo pack-agTho may work at first against any very extended uso of tho parcel post for somo of tho articles which havo been named. Of courso, moro weight can bo sent If it is sent In different parcels, but tho cost in that caso would bo heavier because tho increase per pound on a single packago is not great up to 11 pounds, and probably It would Increase at no greater rate if tho government wero to raise tho limit of weight which is now fixed. To make it simpler, It will cost moro to send two packages of 11 pounds than it would to Bend one packago of 22 pounds If tho government ovcntually should allow a heavi ham-pore s, d o er slnglo packago to bo carried and should charge in proportion just what It does now for ono packago of 11 pounds weight. Every postmaster in tho United States will havo a parcel post map llko the ono which is hero reproduced except that tho zono lines will bo shown with the unit of his postofllco as a center. All that a postmaster will havo to do when a parcel is presented for transportation is to find out in what zono tho destination of tho packago lies. His table will show him instantly tho rato per pound from the unit in which his postofllce lies to tho zono of tho package's destinations, tho price as has been explained before, to every postofllco in any ono zono being the same. Tho parcel post matwill take nothing but fourth-claster. Printed .matter is still in tho designation. Therefore books cannot bo sent by tho parcel post system. This tho postofllco authorities seem to think 1b in a way unjust and may work a hardship. It may bo that in tho future tho law will bo changed so as to includo all printed matter. It scorns to bo certain that an attempt will bo made to bring about this change as speedily as possible. Must Bear Stamp. Postmaster General Hitchcock has ordered that postmasters be advised that parcel post packages cannot bo accepted for mailing unless thoy bear a distinctive parcel post stamp and havo attached to them tho return card of tho sender. A series of distinctivo stamps is now in courso of preparation for this class ot mall as required by tho law creating tho parcel post system. Consignments of theso stamps will bo ready for shipment to all postofllces in amplo time for tho establishment of tho new system on Now Year's day. Tho postofllco department has given instruction to ovory postmaster in tho country to enlighten his patrons as much as possible on the general subject of tho parcel post and especially on tho uso of tho special stamps and tho necessary attachment of tho card. The law requires that nil fourth-clasmattor mailed a ier January 1, 1913, without parcel post stamps attached shall bo treated as "Hold for postago" matter. Parcel post packages will bo mallablo only at postofllces, branch postofllces, lettered and local named stations, and such numbered stations as may be designated by tho postmaBtors. It has been announced by Postmas0 ter General Hitchcock that nearly Bcalcs will bo required for uso In tho parcel post system which is to go into effect January 1st. He has accordingly authorized the issuanco of bids for that number. Two hundred of tho largest postofllces and their branches will bo supplied with automatic 8pringloss scales. Tho next class ot ofllces, numbering about will bo given high grado beam scale, whllo tho four class offices, numbering about 55,000, will bo furnished with tho best spring balances obtainable, each having a capacity for twenty pounds. These scales will be used by postmasters to determine the amount of postage required on parcel post packages.

According to Andrew Jackson Miller, the "chesjnut king" of Jones' Mills, tho pickings are going to bo very lean this fall, several incursions mado by him into the chestnut producing sections of the mountains having convinced him that there will not bo much of n crop, in striking contrast with tho abundance of last year. Mr. Miller says that the weather has been wet and that tho chestnuts havo been drowned in the blossom. Some believe in the adago to the effect that rain on St. Swlthln's day means a lean chestnut crqp, whllo others say that It all depends upon whether or not it rains on July 26.

SEEM TO Ho Arctic oxplorntlon. If you docldo to mako a Journoy to ono of tho poles, you know that Eskimo dogs aro absolutely essential. You can get good Eskimo dogs in Greenland, or In Alaska, But tho good dogs In Greenland may not bo exported excopt by special permission of tho Danish government; and tho good dogs in AlaBka aro not so good. Ono troublo with ordinary Eskimo dogs is that they havo no breeding and no discipline. They will obey tho master with whom they havo been brought up, but when they start after fish or other gnmo, even tholr maBtcr can control them only by tho exercise of bruto force. For tho purposes of your exploration you need dogs that will obey orders given by a white man, dogs that aro broken to tho harness nnd nro not afraid of work, dogs that have learned team work. It Is this kind of doc that Mra. Scott raises for tho market. Her kennels havo only puro blooded animals of carefully selected stock, and froml earliest puppyhood sho trains them in how to cat and how to work. Whoa sho gets through with an Eskimo dog tho animal is not nearly so ferocious as ono that Just "growed up" in the surroundings of an Eskimo village. They adapt themselves quickly to new masters, and they have acquired good eating manners, so that they aro not so likely to attack tho cupboard or fresh game. Mrs. Scott feeds her animals no meat except pemmlran and dried fish brought from Norway; a large part of tho diet Is a specially prepared biscuit. She has supplied trained dogs for a number of Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. Scientific American. At Grovo Park, ono of tho suburbs of London, Mrs. Scott conducts a very Interesting dog farm. Her specialty is Eskimo dogs, which alio breed u and trains for tho market. Tho market 1h not very largo, but it Is sufficient to mnko it worth her whilo to ralso and train tho best posslblo Eskimo dogs It Is not tho food mnrkct, nor tho ordinary dog market.

"A slight Indisposition only." Me-lanl- e, . excluding favorites, Aleck's. Mr. Chamberlain rose to depart. He was an Englishman, a serious, heavy gentleman, very loyal to old friends and very slow in making new ones. He made an engagement to dine with Aleck on tho following evening, and, as he went out, threw back to the remaining gentlemen an offer of seats In his machine. "I ought to go," said Jones; "but if Van Camp will stay, I will. That is," ho added with belated punctiliousness, "if the ladies will permit?" "Thank you, Chamberlain, I'm walking," drawled Aleck; then turning to tho company with his cheeful grin ho stated qulto Impersonally: "I was thinking of staying long enough to put ono question er, a matter of some little importance to Miss Iteynier. When she gives mo the desired information, ,1 shall go." "Mo, tos," chirped Mr. "I enmo expressly to talk over that plan or building up friendly adjoining estates out In Idaho; sort of privato shooting and hunting park, you know. And I haven't had a minute to say a word." Jones suddenly began to feel himself aggrieved. As the door closed after Chamberlain, Melanie motioned them back to their seats.

But youth has no fairly Madamo advantage." such beamed with benevolence while explaining one of her pot idiosyncrasies. Before Aleck could make any headway in gleaning Information concerning her own and Molanle's movements, as ho was shamefully trying to do, Lloyd-Jone- s had persuaded Miss Reynler to sing. "Some of those quaint old things, please," ho was saying; and Aleck wondered if ho never would hang himself with his own rope. But Lloyd-Jonecheerful voice went on: "Some of those Hungarian things are jolly and funny, even though you Makes can't understand the words. rou want to dance or sing yourself." Aleck groaned, but Melanie began to sing, with Jones hovering around the piano.

Midnight and the relaxation of slumber could subtract nothing from the dignity of the club officials, and the message that was waiting for Mr. Van Camp was delivered In the most correct manner.

"Very well, thank you," replied Aleck, rather absent-mindedlHe was unable to see, Immediately, just what change in his own plans this sudden turn of Jim's would cause; and he was for the moment too deeply preoccu pled with his own personal affairs to speculate much about It His thoughts went back to the events of tho evening, recalled the picture of his Diana and her teasing wnys, and dwelt especially upon the honest, friendly, wholly bewitching look that had flown to him at the end of tho evening. Absurd as his own attempt at a declaration had been, he somehow felt that he himself was not absurd In Melanle's eyes, though ho was far from certain whether sho was Inclined to marry him. Aleck, on his part, had not como to his decision suddenly or Impulsively; nor, having arrived there, was he to bo turned from it easily. True as it was that he sincerely and affectionately desired Melanie Reynler for a wife, yet on the whole ho was a very cool Romeo. He was manly, but he was, calculating; he was honorably disposed toward matrimony, but ho was rot reborn with love. And so, in the sober bedroom of the club he quickly fell Into the good sleep induced by fa- architecture. pect that your action deprives mm of "oir.' vuu umij never guvo me any a very necessary revenue; and I un- kind of flower.

After all, he is your next of kin, the head of your family, and a very powerful man. If wo are going home at all, we ought to go now." "But supposo wo should decide not to go homo at all?" "You will havo to go some tlmo, dear child.

You, with your nature, could never do It. Tho call of tho laud is strong, and the time will come when you will long to go home, long to go back to the land where your father led his soldiers, and where your mother was admired and loved." Madamo Reynler paused and watched her niece, who, with eyes cast down, was toying with with her spoon. Suddenly a crimson flush rose and spread over Melanlo's cheeks and forehead and neck, and when sho looked up Into Mndame Reynler's face, sho was gazing through unshed tears. Sho roso quickly, camo round to the older woman's chair nnd kissed her cheek affectionately. "Dear Auntie, you aro very good to me, and patient, too. It's nil true, I supposo; hut tho prospect of homo together ah, and Count Lorenzo well!" sho smiled reassuringly and again caressed Madnmo Reynler's gaunt old face. "I'll think it all over, Auntlo dear." Madamo Reynler followed Melanlo bringing tho Into her sitting-room- , precious orchids In her two hands, fearful lest tho fragile vaso should fall. Melanlo regarded them a moment, and then said sho thought they would do better In the drawing-room- . "I sometimes think the llttlo garden pink quite as pretty as an orchid." "They aren't bo much in Mr. stylo as these," replied Madamo Reynler. Sho had a faculty ot commenting pleasantly without tho least hint of criticism. This remark delighted Molanlo. "Np; I should never plcturo Mr. as a garden pink. But then, Auntlo, you remember how eloquent ho was about tho hills and tho stars. That speech did not at all a hothouse nature." "Nevertheless, I think his sentiments havo been cultivated, Ilka his orchids." "Not a bad achievement," said Lloyd-Jones' y Lloyd-Jone- 1 Out Melanie, tired, perhaps, of Mtlestlr tactful. aettlad th Bat tigue and healthy nerves. Morning brought counsel and a disposition to renew operations. A note was dispatched to his Diana by a private messenger, and tho boy was bidden to wait for an answer. It cam presently: "Como at twelve, if you wish. "MELANIE REYNIER." Aleck smiled with satisfaction. Here was a wise venture going through happily, he hoped. He was pleased that she had named tho very hour he had asked for tho night before. That waB like her good, frank way of meeting a situation, and it augured well for the unknown emorgenclos of their future life. He had little patlcnco with timidity and traditional coyness in women, and great admiration for an open and fearloss bpliit. Melanle's note almost sot his heart thumping. But not quite; and no ono understood tho cool nature of that organ bettor than Molanle herself. The ladies In the apartmont at tho had lingered at their breakfast, tho austorlty of which had been mitigated by a center decoration of or chids and fern, with dew; or so Madamo Reynler had described them to Melanie, ns sho brought them to her with tho card of Miss Reynler smiled Mr. faintly, admired tho blossoms and turned away.

Novortholoss, sho was glad to find Molanlo disposed to dlsouss tho mattor a llttlo furthor. "Do you wish to go homo, Auntlo, or Is it that you think I ought to go?" "I don't wish to go without you, child, you know that; nnd I am very comfortahlo here. But his Highness, your cousin, Is very Impatient; I seo that In every letter from Krolvetz. You offended him deeply by putting off your marriage to Count Lorenzo, and every day now deepens hla Indignation against you. I don't like to discuss these things. Melanie. but I sus- Arch-angol fresh-touche- should only bo exchanged between oweethcarts. At least, I heard him expound some such theory years ago, when wo first knew him." Madame smiled a significant smile, if any one had been looking. Nothing further was said until Melanie unexpectedly shot straight to the mark with: "How do you think ho would do, Auntie, In place of Count Lorenzo?" Madamo Reynler showed no surprise. "He Is a sterling man; but your cousin would never consent to it." "And If I should not consult my cousin?" "My dear Melanie, that would many embarrassing consequences; and embarrassments are worse than crimes." Melanlo could laugh at that, and did. "I've already answered a note from Mr. Van Camp 'this morning, Auntie. No, don't worry," sho playfully answered a sudden anxious look that camo upon her aunt's countenance, "I've not said 'yes' to him. But he's coming to see mo at twelve. If I don't glvo him a chance to say what ho has to say, ho'll take ono anywhere. He's capable of proposing on tho street-cars- . Besides, I havo something also to say to him.." "Well, my dear, you know best; certainly I think you know best," waB Madamo Reynler's last word. Mr. Van Camp arrived on tho stroko of twelve, an expression of happiness on his lean, quizzical face. "I'm supposed to bo starting on a cruise," ho told Molanle, "but luck Is with mo. My cousin hasn't turned up or rather ho turned up only to disappear instantly. Otherwise ho would have dragged mo off to catch , with mo hanging tho first " an back like "Is your cousin, then, such a tyen-ta- ll ebb-tidennchor-chaln.- Lloyd-Jone- s. d Lloyd-Jone- s to Mo-'anl- Thero was an Interval of silence, whilo tho younger woman stood looking out ot the window and Madame Reynler cut the leaves ot a French journal. She did not read, however, and presently ahe broke tho ttleae "I doa't remember that Mr, Van Ckud ever teat orealoa te yev." "Oh, yes; ho'a a masterful man, Is Jimmy." "And how did ho 'disappear Instantly?' It sounds mysterious." "It Is mysterious, but Jim can take caro of himself; at. least, I hope ho can. Tho messago said ho had sailed on the Jeanne D'Arc, whatever that Is, and that I waB to look after our hired yacht, tho Sea Gull." Molanlo looked up, startled. "Tho Jeanno D'Arc, was It?" sho cried. "Aro you Buro? But, of course thero must bo many boats by that name, aro thoro not? But did ho say nothing more where ho was going, and why ho changed hla plana 7" "No, not a word moro thnn that. Why? Do you know of a boat namod tho Jeanno D'Arc?" "Yes, very well; but It can notjnat-ter- . It must bo another vessel, surely. Meanwhile, what are you going to do without your companion?" Aleck rose from the slender gilt ohalr where, as usual, he had perched himself, walked to the window and thrust hla kaa4a lata hi peekets fer a eoatewiJsttlT waweat, thea k rant?" Melanlo's mood of softness had not there, faco to faco with this man, faco to faco with hlB seriousness, his masculine will nnd strength, sho felt that she had something yet to struggle for, somo deep personal right to bo acknowledged. It was with a dignity, an aloofness, that was quite real, yet very sweet, that she ,met this American lover. He had her hand In his firm grasp, hut he was waiting for her to speak. Ho was giving her tho hearing that was, In his opinion, her right. "In tho first placo," Melanlo began, "you ought to know more about me who I am, and all that sort of thing. I am, In one sense, not nt all what I seem to be; and that, In the case of marriage, Is a dangerous thing." "It 1b an Important thing, at least. But I do know who you aro; I knew long ago. Since you never referred to the matter, of course I never did. You are tho Princess AuguBte Stopha-niof Krolvetz, cousin of tho present Duke Stephen', called King of Krolvetz. You aro even in lino for the throne, though thero are two or threo lives between. You have Incurred tho displeasure of Duke Stephen and aro practically an exllo from your country." "A voluntary exile," Melanlo corrected. "Voluntary only In tho sense that you prefer exilo to absolute submission to tho duke. There is no alternative, if you return." Melanlo was silent. Aleck lifted tho hand which he held, touched It gently with his lips and laid it back besido Its fellow on Melanle's lap. Then ho roso and lifted both hands before her, half In fun and half In earnestness, as If he wero a courtier uolng reverence to his queen. "Seo, your Highness, hew ready I am to do you homage! Only smllo on the most devoted of your servants." Melanie Could not resist his gentle gaiety. It was es if they were two children playing at a story. Aleck, in such a mood as this, was as much fun as a dancing bear, and in five minutes moro ho had won peals of laughter from Molanle. It was what he wanted to brighten her spirits. So presently he camo back to tho big chair, though he did not again take her hand. "I knew you wero titled and Important, Melanlo, and at first I thought that sealed my case entirely. But you seemed to forget your state, seemed not to care bo very much about It; and perhaps that made mo think it was possible for ug both to forget it, or at Jeast to Ignoro it. I haven't a gold throne to give you;. but you're tho only woman I've ever wanted to marry, and I wasn't going to glvo up tho chance until you said so." "Do you know also that If I marry out of my rank and without tho consent of Duko Stephen, I shall forfeit all my fortune?" '"Cut off without a cent!'" Aleck laughed, but presently paused, embarrassed for the first tlmo since ho had begun his plea. "I, you know, haven't millions, but thero's a docent lncomo, oven for two. And then I can alwayB go to work and earn something." he smiled nt her, "giving Information to as a thirsty world about tho you call It. It would bo fun, earning money for you; I'd liko to do It." Melanlo smiled back at him, but left hor chair and wandered uneasily about tho room, ns If turning a difficult matter over In her mind. Aleck Btood by, watching. Presently sho roturned to hor chair, pushed him gently back Into his Beat and dropped down besido him. Before alio spoko, Bho touched her fingers lightly, almost lovingly, along the blue veins of his big hand lying on tho arm of tho chair. Tho hand turned, like a magnet spring, and imprisoned hers. "No, dear friend, not yet," Bald Molanlo, drawing away her hand, yet not very quickly, after all. "There Ib much yot to sny to you, and I havo been wondetfng how to say it, hut I shall do It now. Liko the horoes in tho novels," sho smiled again, " I am going to tell you tho story of my llfo." "Good I" said Aleck. "AH ready for chapter one. But your maid wants you at the door."
