Hollis was absorbed in the latest Issue of the Literary Post It contained this week a most unusual announcement and it was this which now occupied her attention to the exclusion of all else The announcement read as fol lows We the undersigned executors under the will of a person whose name we withhold for the present desire to an nounce that in accordance with the terms of said will the sum of 250000 will bo 0paId to the first person who will submit to us a rhyme for the name Rachel This bequest is based on the following condi leIone Dialect foreign or invented words will ndt be considered 2 This of fer is limited to one year dating from December 190 0In explanation of the foregoing offer nowlngfactsabove referred to is an unfinished poem addressed toa lady whose full Christian name was Fedora LIlian Grace Lorain Hildegarde Louise Rachel The said poem was written by the testator for the purpose of bringing into rhyme each one of the names aforementioned He succeeded in writing six stanzas in which the first six names were respectively in troduced in accordance with his afore aId purpose but he was unable to com plete the poem because of his failure to find a rhyme for the last nameRachel provtdedInthe manner above set forth to discover such a rhyme As full conditions and all necessary in 0formation are contained in the foregoing announcement the undersigned must de dIne to consider any inquiries for further explanation BORDEAUtC Circumstances compelled Marjorie HollIjS to earn her living and against these circumstances her aristocratica Iand artistic soul waged constant re hellion Her family and her acquaint ances generally regarded her as a spoiled child troubled with extrava gant tastes and a lack of practical sense On her side site felt that she f was not understood nor properly ap rvreciateduntiJ sh met Carter Dil f Like herself Mr Dillington was poor f giiaifcad literary aspirations and Mar Jorie felt that in him she had at last f found a sympathetic fellowmortal He accepted special Invitations to the house but rarely called of his own accord appearing content to ride home with her in the evening He was excessively reservedthat was one of his peculiaritiesso that not i Vknew no more of his personal affairs iat the end of nfne months thanh- pLdid during the first week oiThere was one othen subject on which he was equally reticent and that was the discussion regarding the rhyme for Rachel The remarkable 11 j offer in connection with this matter was a subject of unending curiosity and discussion in literary circles but Carter Dillington pointedly avoider every allusion to it To Marjorie or the contrary it was one of alluring in terest She hesitated a long time before venturing to speak to Mr Dillingtor t it His peculiar aversion to the whole matter embarrassed her The mere mention of the name Rachel c disturbed him and her occasional ef iifdrts to lead the conversation aroum1 io the subject were promptly frus trated Finally however she decided to ap r peal to him for help Only one moro 0reality of drudgery Soas he was about to take his departure after a short call on Christmas eve she said Vsladdeniy If a person were to find a hrne for Rachel it would make him Ifamous wouldnt it fliI suppose it would he answered djryiy r And it would make him rich Oh yes Then in the same breath lie abruptly changed the conversation Perhaps Miss Holhls it may inter estjpu to know that I expect in the yext week or two to come into posses iflon of a small fortune and I hope then to be married and holding out 1 chanlcaliy and as the door closed she rsaggfred into the parlor and throw J herself upon the sofa burst into a Torrent of passionate tears Suddenly her sobbings ceased She Shat up bewildered startled In the 1 5nidst of the turmoil of her troubled spirit there had burst upon her without warning without thoughta Thyme for Rachel Two days later Marjorie Hollisr was sin Washington and on the morning ot December 27 she walked into the of llceof Dunbury k Bprdeau and quietly 1 000 for a rtyme for Rachel For a moentthe two men stared Sat her without uttering a sound ilr Dunbury

offer towhic l ybu have responded was made in compliance with the will of our late client Mr Benjamin F Morton He was a trifle eccentric and one othis hobbies was writing poetry He took a great fancy to a nephew of his and spared no money to have the boy well edu catedI ie old gentleman himself hrrtt a very limited education and he was determined that his nephew should not be handicapped as he had been Well just about the time the boy got through college the old gentleman struck a snag in this poem of his about Fedora Lilian Hildegarde et al helphimThe young man informed him that there was no such rhyme but his uncle refused to believe it He insist ed that as the lad had had a college education he could find a rhyme if he chose Well the upshot of it was that the old gentleman took it into nis head that his nephew was obstinate and ungrateful and he cast him off A short time before he died however he finally concluded that perhaps ther really was no rhyme for Rachel ant he decided to reinstate his nephew it his will but with this proviso Tha a rhyme should first be advertised fo and that should any person produc such a rhyme within a year then tb money should go to such person ir stead of the nephew As the executors we of course fo lowed the provisions of the will bi we were definitely satisfied there wa no such rhyme And yet ypusay yoi have found one ram free to say i seems incredible incredible Still a the same time the offer is a bona Qd one and will be carried out to the let 0ter Impossible He Ejaculated iiate one It will certainly prove nost astonishing revelation to us an to the nephew Carter DiIlin ton Marjorie felt that she was about t aint May I have justa moment hink she asked faintly Certainly certainly Tdid no nean to hurry you Of course I un erstand you feel a trifle agitated out take your time and youll recal he rhyme in a minute or two Several moments passed in silence Then Marjorie arose She faced the wo lawyers and with a tremor in bet dice that she struggled bravely to ubdue she said slowlyUI have not orgotten the rhyme butbut I have Jecided not to submit it It was New Years day when Mar lone again saw CarterDillington He tailed late in the afternoon Why had ie come she asked herself Was it io torment her To cause her woundS ed heart to bleed afresh He not to heed her constrained manner nor the quick flushes that reddened her cheeks Marjorie he said suddenly with an impulsiveness and a familiarity he had never before manifested you have wished me a happy New Year Do you know that it is you alone who can make the year happy for mesupremely happy I did not dare express my feelings before I was abso lutelysuretbat I could offer you the comforts and the pleasures you de eerve Now I am independent wealthy and you Marjorie will you share my fortune with me It was late ere the lovers were ready to part Is it any wonder he was saying as he lingeringly prepared to leave that I avoided the subject of my uncles outlandish offer

from his labors IF the Governor of Kentucky and the coming Legislature desire to do something to benefit Eastern Kentucky they can well afford to pass and approve bill taking the convicts out of the

Something bould be done by tl e Legrii ors aJ the Governor to start such a movement Colonel Jack Chinn who was here Monday for the meeting of the State Racing Commission dis cussed at some length recent criticisms of the saloon element that churches and other houses of worship were being used from time to time to propagate the political fight at present being waged to make Kentucky a dry State Colonel Chinn notes tile criticism with earnest purpose and agrees with the contention that no church should he used as a place for political propaganda by either side as the advocates of saloons or against them He regards the matter purely political and to this end he will introduce a bill in the next General Assembly making iu a misdemeanor even to discuss politics in a house of public worship Colonel Chinn also believes that public school houses when actually not in use for class work should be rendered available by statutory enactment for debates and public discussions of afl kinds by leaders of thought in the various com munities He believes in the old fashioned debating society and his prospective measure is meant in no little sense to stimulate a revival of that interesting
