SAMPLE COPY II J IiI w be I S DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY j WIIlIIEti SPRINGFIELD KY WEDNESDAY MARCH 15 19055 IIt x JOHN MAYNARD J ARLAN t nominafiI I L TRAGIC i DEATH I GeorgeCoulter a FourteenYcaf Old Boy Hangs Himself At MooresviNe With a Piece of Binder Twine Y Geo W Coulter jr the fourteen WLyearold son OfMr and Mrs I Coulter of MooMsvlUe GeoOW1 suicide last Saturday Y about 11 oclock a m by hanging himself to a fence post with a piece of binder twine The facts as given to us k by County Assessor James I Royalty upon whose farm the young man was i living with his parents are about as follows Mr Reyalty says he went to the scene of the suicide in a short time 4 after it occurred and found that the unfortunate lad had been cut down byc his brother who ound him within at least ten minutes Wter the rash act had been committed During the morning of the day of the 0borrib e deed George and an elder brother Will had been hauling wood but quit work about 9 oclock to go to some traps which he Will had set It seems that Win had gone to the a traps leaving George behind but as soon as the young man found that Will lad gone started out to find him It was while returning from the traps that the elder brother found young George hanging to the fence At first wasiplaying a prank upon him but upon an investigation he was horrified to find that life was extinct When found by his brother the unfortunate young man was upon his knees facing the post hungsf I was not more long it was looped over the top of the 1poSt and was held in position by a then looped about his neck in a careless manner burying itself into j the flesh No reason can be assigned for the s deed The deceased had not been corrected by anyone at home and that morning was in his xsual good spirits It is thought by some that he merely attempted to frighten his brother and possibly this may be true The idea is advanced that he may have fainted or slipped and fell becoming uncon scious and dying in this condition Some people are inclined to believe this be auie it is a known fact that one of the things which is probably among the impossibilities is for a man t to slowly torture himself to death when there are means of escape It is said that no man can hang himself so long as his feet rest upon something or his hands or loose Instinct if nothing else Will cause him to fr himself anIwas that the young man had committed suicide In view of the evidence pro duced this was the only logical conclu sion but as stated above there is very strong probability that young Coul ter met his death through an acddetn of some nature 8 tot Boy Stabbed Oscar Mobley a twelveyearold son of William Mobley who lives in the Fenwick neighborhood was stabbed last Tuesday night by a thirteenyear- old boy named Baker They were returning fronsTa school entertainment when the trouble occurred At first it was thought that the boys wound was quite serious but later developatenrs indicate that he was not seriously hurt and will be out in a few days There was only one wound that being inflicted below the shoulder bladefIt was not deep enough to injure the lung which makes the recovery of the young man certain Death of Sister Clotilda Sister Clotilda died at St Catherines Monday morning at 7 oclock after a lingering illness of consumption and the body was interred in the

Prizes Be Will Given to Contestants Who Are in the Lead at Noon On April 4 Announcement Next Week Jr a The Voting contest will close on AfrilJ6 at noon Every indication points to an exciting finish As is nearly always the case in such contestsome of the contestants become bunched which is dice largely to the fact that the friends of those who are in the lead and the friends of those who are just a few hundred votes behind are working upon the one to keep their favorites in the lead and upon the other side to make inroad and gains for their friends over the vote of the previous week However itis frequently the case that those who in the start do not seem to be in the race to use a political term very often finish with a winning are large vote The Stth has been told by a number of the friends of the contestants that there is going te be some lively voting during the last two weeks of the contest A gentleman who wastin the office a few evenings ago offered to wager with us that the contest would put at least a thousand names upon our subscription list Certainly we hope he is right about it YOU CAN IUY SUISCRIPTIONS We have been asked if the friends of the contestants would be allowed to buy subscriptions sending the papers to whom they pleased with the privilege of casting fifty votes with each one dollar paid Y syou may buy ten thousand if you want to and in less than a weeks time we will have a fast press in Spring field to grind em out IUYING SUilCRIPTIONS The Sun will sell you as many subscriptions as you want granting you the privilege of disposing of them within one year after you have bought them provided you SELL THEM FOR ONE DOLLAR EACH or give them away to friends We could not afford to have the subscription of the paper cut as this would give us trouble in the future To Jive an example Say a friend of a contestant bought ode hundred dollars werth of subscriptions this would entitle him to five thousand votes for one of the teachers one of the young ladies and one of the farmers and then during one years time he could dispose ef these subscriptions sending the names of the subscribes to The Sun with a subtion certificate which will be furnished by The Sun and the paper will then be sent to the address for one year from the time the name is received in this office + + cOlclllvllllgMost Popular Young Lady Miss Robbie Simms 13210 Miss Sadie Mayes 2595

widely used for some time The exact effect of gold is secured by Using a leaf ol either silver or aluminium under yel low point The metal backing gives the required luster and the point gives the required color This method cannot be used in all cases because the paint is of peculiar quality and requires putting on with an even thick ness For this reason it Is generally applicable only to flat

the Doctor was the First The death of Dr J P Wlllett from a gunshot wound inflicted by Claude Price a sixteenyearold boy has caused a widespread Interest for the doctor was one of the best known physi cians In this section says a correspondent writing from Webb City Mo f The peculiar circumstances ot his dentbblYeled many to believe thdtthe tragedy may have been contemplated These circumstances are that within- less than five minutes after he had told the boy to watch ir certain window and shoot any one appearing before it he stealthily left the house in his stock Ing feet and appeared in front of that particular window Coroner Eames in conversation with Mrs Willett and the lad who fired the shot satisfied him self that there was no criminal intent on the part of Price The widow said I am sure if my husband could speak be would hold him Innocent It was the belief of young Price when he tired the shot that he was shooting at a burglar Ire was indeed simply following the explicit command of Dr Wiljett who had told him only a short time before to shoot at the very first man he saw anywhere around tlid premises When be saw some one pass a window that he bad been di rected to watch carefully the boy at once took aim and fired An Instant afterward he was horrified when he heard the doctor exclaim My God Claude you have shot me Why Is that you doc responded the led And all that Dr Willett could say in response was the single word Yes Then staggering fcom In front of the window to the porch he fell mortally wounded and within twenty minutes before any medical assistance could be procured he was dead The belief is general among the doe tors most Intimate acquaintances that his almost hysterical belief that burglars were haunting his house was more of hallucination than reality He hal jffst moved Into a new house on tilt outskirts of jthe city and young Pr ce was hired to stay with him to wcjrk at getting things In shape around tb new residence The doctor had or several nights In sistedupon both tIle lad and Mrs Wil Jett remaining nwnke at nil hours to assist him in watching for thieves He had seen midnight marauders so hei said in the burn ail around the house and even In the basement One night recently be told a police officer that a group of them was gathered in the basement that ho shot lit them through the kitchen floor and was sure he had wounded bne of them These rngarles for such they undoubtedly were tare believed to have been the result the use of medicine For years Dr Wlilett It Is alleged bad used these medicines and also had drunk considerable liquor Domestic troubles and dlvorqp with complete estrangement from his chil dren followed But soon after his di vorce bad been granted ho braced up find for the past two years he had been lending a different life He had regained his practice had married again and was considered as In a fair way of regaining all he had lost This was all true until a few weeks ago when the police Hay he suddenly began to fall back to his old habits What may have beerf the cause of his relapse no line knows definitely but probably It war from the shock of an accident that occurred to hip present wife who was

States is playing a bold part just now not only in the af fairs of his country but in shaping the future policy and destiny of the Demo cratic party The President is a natural Democrat he says so himself a Benton Democrat he calls it How he managed to get mixed up with the Republican camp and to prosper in it ia a mystery that can only be explained by environ mentand luck The Republican leaders never liked him They always protested his free bold ways and they most deliberately tried to shelve h m by making him VicePresident against his will at Phila delphiaBut Providence which shapes the destinies of nations and of men reserved him for service to the people and for the revivification of the great Demo cratic partywhich carries now and always he best hope oi the plain people of America The President has climbed into the Democratic band Wagon andhas actually seized the reins and is doing the driving without any apology to the owners He is demonstrating a regard for popular rights anda fearlessness of corporate displeasure which Js as wholesome as it is unRepublican and he is setting an example of courage in high places which is bracing the ackbone of all parties and of all citizens in a republic that has been too mach inclined to cower and tremble before the supposed omnipotence of the colossal trusts and syndicates I do not feat or hesitate to say this much of the Republican President because it is true and because I am sure that his present policies will all work out to the good and glory of the Dem ocratic party whose platform he is now vindicating and the correctness and ad1vertisingranks and to the delight of urstTheodore Roosevelt is making Dem ocrats every day making them out of men who have been Republicans and making over those who have forgotten to be Democrats or who have been discouraged in the hope of success Do not for a moment imagine that the President can ever carry hispid hidebound party of privilege and tarC rifffed parasites along with him in thisC Democratic way They are following theyi1the astonishment which his boldness his popular courage have produced They are afraid of this young and now untrammelled political athlete whose prowess and daring do not particularly invite difference or attack But there is a muttering all through the ranks df the Republican party and the murmur will deepen to a storm in which the spoilsmens organization will go dowriiI in defeat The profits of party are ready foretelling the speedy future in which Theodore Roosevelt will stand as Grover Clevelanddidat outs with alt the leaders of his political army and as a wedge to split in twain an organiza tion that has already performed its mission and ought to be ready to die Nor is the President himself to reap the fruits of a career which must be unselfish because it is without the ex pectation of political reward He has definitely and distinctly put behind him the desire or expectation of another term of office He has pledged himself to be no more a candidate for Presiden tial honors He cannot in honor lead again His party will not deserve the credit for his Administration He him ReIrThe faction of Corporate greed and privilege which furnishes the money will be implacable against a Democratic President in a Republican administra tion They will stand ina phalanx for the old creeds of protection and favor itism There is no compromise and no concession to be expected from them They will force the old craft back to its selfish moorings and Ipnve faith in an other safe Voyage tci the Presidential ha ei But therd are thousands of honest RepublietUis who since the war in loyal ttYid unquestioning faith have fol Lindfaith and never broken ranks because their traditions were set To these men Roosevelt is a revelation He is ing them Democracy from Red publican pulpit He is showing them that thje things which Democrats have pleaded for for forty years and which they have beep taught to believe would bring rUin to the country are good things and righteous things and that they cnn be done and ought to be done Republicnnshvelt has opened their eyes They see 1the light and ove it because It is the light of popular

Lady Tozer did my father impress you as one who would permit a fussy and stout old person to make my life miserable The acidity of the retort lay In the word stout But Iris was not accustomed to cross

dashed through an open port There snapped her ladyship I knew we should run Into a Istorm Yet Captain Rosa led us to believe John f TTrrrrrtake me to my cabin at once From the promenade deck the list less groups watched the rapid advance of the gale There was mournful spec ulation upon the Sirdars chances of reaching Singapore before the next eveningIris somewhat apart from the other passengers The wind had freshened and her hat was tied closely over her ears She leaned against the taff rail enjoying the cool breeze after Hours of sultry heat The sky was cloudless yet but there was d queer tinge of burnished copper In the all pervading sunshine The son Was cold ly blue The life had gone out of it it was no louder inviting and translucent Long sullen undulations swept nolso lessly past the ship Once after a steady climb up a rolling hill of water the Sirdar quickly pecked at the succeeding valley and tHe propeller gave a couple of angry flaps on the surface while a tremor ran through the stout iron rails on which the girls arms rested The crew were busy too Squads of Lascars raced about industriously obe dient to the short shrill whistling of jemadars and quartermasters Boat lashings were tested and tightened canvas awnings stretched across the deck forward ventilator cowls twisted to new angles and hatches clamped down beer the wooden gratings that covered the holds Officers spotless In white linen flitted quietly to and fro When the watch was changed Iris noted that the chief appeared in an old blue suit and carried oilskins over his arm as he climbed to the bridge Nature looked disturbed and fitful and the ship responded to her mood There was a sense of preparation in the air of coming ordeal of restless foreboding Chains clanked with a noise the girl never noticed before the tramp of hurrying men on the hurri cane deck overhead sounded heavy and hollow There was a squeaking of chairs that was abominable when pea pIe gathered up books and w and staggered ungracefully toward the companionway Altogether Miss DeaDe was not wholly pleased with the prel- iminarIes of a typhoon whatever the realities might be Whys did that silljh old woman allude to her contemplated marriage tb Lord 9flHongkongFor an instant Iris tried to shake the railing in comic anger She hated Lord Veutnor She did not want to marry him or anybody else just yet OS course her father had hinted approval of his lordships obvious intentions Countess of Ventuor Yes Jt was a nice title Still she wanted another couple of years of careless freedom in any event wfiy should Lady Tozer pry and probe And finally why did the steward oh poor old Sir John What would have happened if the ice had slid down his neck Thoroughly comforted by this gleeful hypothesis Miss Deane seized a favorable opportunity to dart across the starboard side and see If Captain Ross heavy bank 6t cloud In the northwest had put In an ap pearance Ha There it was black ominous gigantic rolling up over the horizon like some monstrous football Around It the sky deepened into purple fringed with a wide belt ofbrick red She hud never seen such a beginning of a gale From what she had read in books she imagined that only in great deserts were clouds of dust generated There could not be dust in the dense pall now rushing with giant strides across the trembling sea Then what was it Why was It so dark and menacing And where was desert of stcne and sand to compare with this awful ex panse of water What a small dot was this great ship on the visible sur face But the ocean Itself extended away beyond there reaching out to the infinite The dot became a mere speck undtstinguiHhable beneath celestial microscope such as the goUs might Icondp cend to use Iris shivered and aroused herself with a startled laugh The lively fanfare of the dinner trumpet failed to fill the saloon By this time the Sirdar was fighting reso lutely against n stilt gale But the stress of actual combat was better than the eerie sensation of impending danger during the earlier hours The strong hearty pulsations of the engines the regular thrashing of the screw the steadfast onward plunging of the good ship through racing sets and flying scud Were cheery confident and Inspiring Miss Deaue justified her boost she was an excellent sailor thatI smiled delightedly at the ships geon when he caught her eye through the many gaps In the tables She was alone so he joined her You are a credit to the company iulte a sea kings daughter he said Doctor do you talk to all your lady passengers In that way Alas no Too often I can only be truthful when I am dumb Iris laughed If I remain long on this ship I will certainly have head turned she cried I receive nothing bnjt omDllnj m groin the captain r down toto t The doctor No You come a good second on the listIn very truth she was thinking of the Ice carrying steward and his queer start of surprise at the announcement of her rumored engagement tThe man interested her Helooked like a broken down gentleman Her quick eyes trav eled around the saloon to discover his whereabouts She could not see him The chief steward stood near balanc- Ing himself In apparent defiance of the laws of gravitation for the ship was now pitching and rolling with a mud zeal For an intant she meant to in quire what had become of the trans gressor but she dismissed the thought at its Inception The matter was too trivial platesglassesbles crashed to starboard Were it nol for the restraint of the fiddles everything must have been swept to the floor There wer one or two minor ac cidents A steward taken unawares was thrown headlong on top of his laden tray Others were compelled to clutch the backs of chairs and cling to pillars One man involuntarily seized the hair of a lady who devoted an hour before each meal to her coiffure The Sirdar with a frenzied bound tried to turn a somersault A change of course observed the doctor They generally try to avoid it when people are In the saloon but a typhoon admits of no labored polite ness As Its center is now right ahead we are going on the starboard tack to get behind itI must hurry up and go on deck said Miss Deane You will not be able to go on deck until the morning She turned on him Impetuously Indeed I will Captain Ross promised methat Is I asked him The doctor smiled She was so charm ingly insistent It is simply impossi ble he said The companion doors are bolted The promenade deck is swept by hoary seas every minute A boat has been carried away and sev oral stanchions snapped off like car rots For the first time In your life downIThewhat He added hastily There Is no danger you know but these precau tions are necessary You would not like to see several tons of water rush ing down

leg bro kenAnything else The doctor hesitated He became interested in the colot of some Burgundy I hardly know the exact de tails yet he replied Tomorrow after breakfast I will tell you all about it An English quartermaster and four Lascars hud been licked from off the forecastle by the greedy tongue of a huge wave The succeeding surge flung the five teen back against the quarter One of the black sailors was pitched aboard with a fractured leg and other Injuries The others were smashed against the iron hull and disappeared For one tremulous moment the engines slowed The ship commenced to veer off Into the path of the cyclone Captain Ross set his teeth and the telegraph bell jangled Full speed ahead Poor Ja ksonhe murmured One of my best men I remember seeing his wife n prettly little woman and two children coming to meet him last homeward trip They will be there again Good God That Lascar who was saved has some one to await him In a Bombay village I suppose The captain fought his way to the chart h sHe wiped the salt water from his byes and looked anxiously at the barometer Still falling he muttered VI will keep on until 7 oclock and then bear three points to the southward By midnight we should be behind it outsideIDown in the saloon the hardier pas sengers were striving to subdue the ennui of an interval before they sought their cabins Some talked One hard ened strummed the piano Otherltplayed cards chess draughts anything that would distract attention The stately apartment offered strange contrast to the warring elements with r tY L + + + + + + out Bright lights costly upholstery soft carpets carved panels and gilded cornices with uniformed attendants passing to and fro carrying coffee and glasses these surroundings suggested a floating unlace In which the raging seas were defied Yet forty miles away somewhere in the furious depths four corpses swirled about with horrible uncertainty lurching through battling currents and perchance convoyed by fighting sharks The surgeon had been called away Irjs was the only lady left in the saloon She watched a set of whist players for a time and then essayed the perilous passage tb her stateroom She found her maid and a stewardess there Both women were weeping What Is the matter she Inquired The stewardess tried to speak She choked withgrlef and hastily went out The maid blubbered an explana tion A friend of herswas married miss to the man who 13 drowned Drowned What than Havent you beard miss I suppose they are kdeping it quiet An English sailor and some natives were swept off the ship by a sea One native was saved but he Is all smashed up The others were never seen again Iris by degrees learned the sad chronicles of the Jackson family She was moved to tears She remembered the doctors hesitancy and her own Idle phrase a huge coffin Outside the roaring waves pounded upon the iron walls Two staterooms had been converted into one to provide Miss Deane with ample accommodation There were no bunksbuta cozy bed was screwed to the deck She lay down and strove to read It was a difficult task Her eyes wandered from the printed page to mark the absurd antics of her gar ments swinging On their hooks At times the ship rolledso far that she felt sure It must tipple over She was not afraid but subdued rather aston ished placidly prepared for vague eventualities Things were ridiculous What need was there for all this external fury Why should poor sailors be cast forth to instant death in such awful man ner If she could only sleep and for getif kind oblivion would blot out the storm for a few blissful hours But how could one sleep with the conscious ness of that watery giant thundering his summons upon the iron plates a few incbes away Then came the blurred picture of Captain Ross high up on the bridge peer- Ing Into the moving blackness How strange that there should be hidden In the convolutions of a mans brain an intelligence that laid bare the pretenses of that nihnousdemo without Erich of the ships officers the commander snore than the others understood the why and the wherefore of this blustering combination wind and sea Iris knew the language of poker Nature was putting up a huge bluff Oh dear She was so tired It demanded a physical effort to constantly shove away an unseen force that tried to push you over How funny that a big cloud should travel up against the windt And so amid confused won derment she lapsed into an uneasy slumber her last sentient thought be IIga quiet thankfulness that the screw went thud thud thud thud with such determination After the course was changed and the Sirdar bore away toward the south west the commander consulted the barometer each half hour The telltale mercury had sunk over two inches in twelve hours The abnormally low pressure quickly created dense clouds which enhanced the melancholy darkness of the gale f For many minutes together the bows of the ship were not visible Masthead and side lights were obscured by the pelting scud The engines thrust the vessel forward like a lance into the vitals of the storm Wind and wave gusb doutot the vortex with Impotent fury At lust soon after midnight the barometer showed a slight upward movement At 130 a m the change became pronounced Simultaneously the wind swung round a point to the westward Then Captain Ross smiled wearily His face brightened He opened his oilskin coat glanced at the compass and nodded approval Then he turned toconsult n chart He was joined by the chief officer Both men examined the chart in silence Captain Ross finally took a pencil He stabbed its point on the paper in the neighborhood of 14 degrees north and 112 degrees east We are about there I think The chief agreed That was the 1o cality 1 had in my mind He bent closer over the sheet Nothing in the way tonight slrbeadded Nothing whatever It Is a bit of good luck to meet such weather here We can keep as far south as we like until daybreak and by that tIme How did it look when you

murkiness In front Suddenly they were galvanized Into strenuous activity A wild howl came from the lookout forward The eyes of the three men t glared at a huge dismasted Chinese junk wallowing helplessly In the trough of the sea dead under the bows The captain sprang to the chart house and signaled In fierce pantomime that the wheel should be put hard over The officer In charge of the bridge pressed the telegraph lever toustop arid full speed astern while with his disengaged hand be pulled hard at the siren cord and a raucous warning sent stewards flying through the ship to close collision bulkhead doors The chief darted to the port rail for the Sirdars Instant t response to thebelm seemed to clear her nose from the junk as if by magic 4 It all happened so quickly thatjvhile v t the hoarse signal was still vibrating through the ship the junk swept past her quarter The chief officer Joined now by the commander looked down into the wretched craft They could see her crew lashed In a bunch around the capstan on her elevated poop She was laden with timber Although wa terlogged she could not sink If she held together A great wave sucked her away from the steamer and then hurled her back with Irresistible force The Sirdar was just completing her turning movement and she heeled over yielding to the mighty power of the gate For an appreciable instant her engines stopped The mass of water that swayed the junk like a cork lifted the great ship high by the stern The propeller began to revolve In air for the third of deer had corrected his signal to full speed ahead again and the cumbrous tChinese vessel struck the Sirdar a ter rible blow In the counter smashing off the screwYclose to the thrust block and tTheregines before the engineers could shut off steam The junk vanished into the wilderness of noise and tumbling seas beyond and the fine steamer of a few seconds ago replete with magnificent energy struggled like a wounded levia than in the grasp of a vengeful foe She swung around as If In wrath to pursue the puny assailant which had dealt her this mortal stroke No longer breasting the storm with stubborn per- sistency she now drifted aimlessly

L CHAPTER II il riE the Sirdar parted amid ships the floor of the saloon heaved up in the center with a Inilirhtv crash of rending woodwork and iron Men and women too stupefied to sob out a prayer were pitched into chaos Iris torn from the terrified grasp of her maid fell through a corridor and would have gone down with the ship had not a sailor clinging to a companion ladder caught he tasahe whirled along the steep slope Jot the deck He did not know what had happen ed With the instinct of self preserva tion he seized the nearest support when the vessel struck It was the mere of ready helpfulness that caused h4nJto stretch out his left arm and clasp tiie girls waist as she flutter ed past By idle chance they were on the port side and the ship after paus ing for one awful second fell over to starboard The man was not prepared for this second gyration Even as the stair way canted he lost his balance they were both thrown violently through the open hatchway and swept off into the boiling surf Under such conditions thought itself was impossible A series of impressions a number of fan tastic pictures were received by the be numbed faculties and afterward painfully sorted out by the memory Fear anguish amazement none of these could exist All he knew was thatthe lifeless form of a womanfor iris had happily faintedmust be held until death Itself wrenched her from him Then there came the headlong plunge into the swirling sea followed by an indefinite period of gasping oblivion Something that felt like a movingrock- rose up beneath his feet He was driven clear out of the water and seemed to recognize H familiar object rising rigid and bright close at hand It was the pinnacle pillar screwed to a portion of the deck which came away from the chart house and was rent from the up per framework by contact with the reef He seized this unlooked for sup port with his disengaged hand A uniformed figurehe thought it was the captain stretched out an unavailing arm to clasp the queer raft which supported the sailor and the girl but a Jealous wave rose under the platform with devilish energy and turned it Completely over hurling the man with his Inanimate burden into the depths He rose fighting madly for his lift Now surely he was doomed But main as if human existence depended on naught more serious than the spinning of a coin his knees rested on the same few stanch timbers now the ceiling of the music room and he was given a brief respite His great est difficulty was to get his breath so dense was the spray through which he was driven Even in that terrible moment he kept his senses The girl utterly unconscious showed by the convulsive heaving of her breast that she was choking With a wild effort he swung her head routs to shield her from the flying scud with his own form The tiny air space thus provided gave her some relief and In that In stant the sailor seemed to recognize her He was not remotely capable of a definite idea Just as he vngelyreal ized the Identity of the woman In his arms the unsteady support on which he rested toppled over Again he renewed the unequal contest A strong resolute man and a typhoon seaTwres tied for supremacy This time his feet plunged against something gratefully solid He was dashed forward still battling with the raging turmoil of water and a second time he felt the same firm yet smooth surface tHis dormant faculties awoke It was sand With frenzied despera j tion ed now by the Inspiring hope- of satetylhe fought his way onward like a maniac- OftenIle fell Three times did the theIcating loam and his faltering feet sank In deep soft white sand Then he fell not to rise again With a last weak flicker of exhausted strength the drew the girl closely to him and the two lay clasped tightly together heedless now of all things How long the than remained pros trate he could only guess subsequently The Sifdar struck soon after daybreak and the sailor awoke to a hazy consciousness of his surroundings to find a rihifti of sunshine flickering through the clouds banked up In the east The gale was already passing away Althdjigh the wind still whis tiled with shill violence It was more blustering than threatening The sea too though running very high had retreated many yards from the spot where he had finally dropped and Its surface was no longer scourged with venomous spray Slowly land painfully he raised hLn r I self to fn sitting posture for he was bruised and stiff With his first move meat hO became violently ill He had swallowed much saltwater and it was not until the spasm of sickness had passed that he thought of the girl She cannot be dead lIe hoarsely murmured feebly trying to lift her Surely Providence would not desert her after such an escape What a weakbeggar I must be to give in at the last mdment lam sure she was living vheu we got ashore What on earth cin I do to revive her Forgetful of his own aching limbs in this newborn unjRlety he sank on oiie knee anil gently tIllowei Iris head and shoulders on the other Her eyes were lips and teeth firmly setaCIOS9dier she undoubtedly owed she would have been suf focatediand the pallor of her skin be that terrible bloodless seemeito indicates death The stern mans face relaxed and something blurred vision He was weak from exhaustion and want of food For the moment his emotions were ea jily aroused Oh it is pitiful he almost wh m pered It cannot be WItlia gesture of despair he drew the sleeve of his thick Jersey across his eyes to clear them from the gathering He staggered blindly on mist Then he tremblingly endeavored to open the neck of her dress He was startled to find the girls eyes wide open and surveying him with shadowy alarm She was quite conscious Thank God he cried hoarsely You are alive GHer back with remarka ble rapidity She tried to assume a sitting posture and instinctively her hands traveled to her disarranged cos tumeIHow ridiculous she said with a little note of annoyance in her voice which sounded curiously hollow But her brave spirit could not yet command her enfeebled frame She was perforce compelled to sink buck to the support of his knee and arm Do you think you could lie quiet until I try to find some water he gasp ed anxiously She nodded a childlike acquiescence and her eyelids fell It was only that her eyes smarted dreadfully from the salt water but the sailor was sure that this was a premonition of a lapse to unconsciousness Please try not to faint again he said Dont you think I had better loosen these things You can breathe more easily y A ghost of a smile flickered on her lips Non0 she murmured My eyes hurt me that Is jail Is there any water J He laid her tenderly Jon the sand and rose to his feet His first glance was toward the sea He saw something which rnadfe him blink with astonish nHnt A heavy sea was still running over the barrier reef which inclosed n small lagoon The contract between the fierce commotion outside and the comparatively smooth surface of the protected pool was very nifirked At low tide the lagoon was almost com pletely isolated Indeed lib imagined that only a fierce gale blowing from the northwest would enable the waves to leap the reef save where1 a strip of broken water surging far into the small natural harbor betrayed the po sition of the tiny entrance Yet at this very point u fliie cocoanut palm reared Its stately column high in air and Its long tremulous trond4 were now swlnglng wildly before the gale From where he stood it appeared to be growing In the midst of the sea for huge breakers completely hid the coral embankment Tills sentinel of the land had n weirdly Impressive effect It was the only fixed object In the waste of foam rapped waves Npt a vestige of the Sirdar remained seaward but the sand was littered with wreckage and mournful spectacle a considera ble number of inanimate human forms lay huddled up amid the relics of the jThisto action He urged to survey the land on which he was stranded with his helpless com panion Ta his great relief he discovered that it was lofty and tree clad He knew that the ship could not have drifted to Borneo which still lay far to the south This must be one of the hundreds of islands which stud the China sea and provide resorts for Hal nan fishermen Probably It was In habited though he thought It strange that none ot the slanders had put In an appearance In any event water and fdod of some sort were assured But before setting out upon his quest two things demanded attention The girl must be removed from her present position It would be too horrible to permit her first conscious gaze to rest upon those crumpled objects on the beach Common humanity demanded too that he should hastily examine each of the bodies in case life was not wholly extinct So he bent over the girl noting with sudden wonder that weak iis she was she had managed to refasten part of her bodice You must permit me to darry you a little farther inlaudhe explained gently Without another word he lifted her in his arms marveling somewhat at the strength which came of necessity and bore her sonic little distance until a sturdy rock Jutting out of the sand offered shelter from the wind and pro tection from the sea and its revela tions I am so cold and tired murmured Iris IS there any water My throa- hurts me He pressed back the tangled hair from her forehead as he might soothe a clild minutesstiffer I will return immediately His own throat and palate were o fire owing to the brine but he firs hurried back to the edge of the lagoon There were fourteen bodies In all three women and eleven men four of th latter being Lascars The women wer saloon passengers whom he did not know One of the men was the sur geon another the first officer a third Sir John Tozer The rest were passen gers and members of the crew The were all dead s lellnd been peacefully drowned others were tearfully mangled by the rocks Two of the Las- cars bearing signs of dreadful Injuries were lying on a cluster of low rocks overhanging the water The remainder rested on the sand The sailor exhibited no visible em tion while he conducted his sad scru tiny When he was assured that this silent company was beyond mortal help he at once strode away toward th nearest belt of trees He could not tell how long the search for water might be protracted and there was pressing need for it When he reached the first clump of brushwood he uttered a delighted exclamation There growing in prodigal luxuriance was the beneficent pitcher plant whose large curled up leaf shaped like a teacup not only holds a last lug quantity of rain water but mixes therewith its own palatable and nat ural Juices With his knife he severed two of the leaves and hastened to Iris with the precious beverage She heard bun and managed to raise herself on an el bow The poor girls eyes glistened at the prospect of relief Without a word of question or surprise she swallowed the contents of both leaves Then she found utterance Ho odd it tastes What Is Itshe In quired But the eagerness with which she quenched her thirst renewed his own momentarily forgotten torture His tongue seemed to swell He was ab solutely unable to reply The water revived Iris like a mag- idraft Her quick Intuition told he what had happened You have had none yourself sh criedlOGo at once and get some An please bring e some more He required no second bidding Aft er hastily gulping down the contents of several leaves he returned with further supply Iris was now sittin up The sun hind burst through the clouds and her chilled limbs were gaining some degree of warmth and elasticityWhat is it she repeated after an other delicious draft The leaf of the pitcher plant Na ture Is not always cruel In an un usually generous mood she devised this method of storing water Miss Deane reached out her hand for more Her troubled brain refused to wonder at such a reply from an ordinary seaman The sailor deliberately spilled the contents of a remaining leaf on the sand u No madam he said with nn odd mixture of deference und firmness No more at present I must first procure you some food She looked up at him in momentary silence The ship is lost she said after a pause Yes madam Are we the oniy people saved I fear 89 Is this a desert Island I think not madam It may by chance be temporarily uninhabited but fishermen from China come to all these places I have seen no other living beI- ngs except ourselves Nevertheless tire Islanders may live on the south side It surely cannot be possible

swimming eyes for a fleeting look at him Even in the utter desolation of the moment she could not help marveling that this queer mannered sailor who spoke like a gentleman and tried to poss as her inferior who had rescued her with the utmost gallantry who carried iffy quix otic zeal to the point of first supplying her needs when he was In tar worse case himself should be so utterly indifferent

What can we eaO Let us find out he replied scanning the nearest trees with keen scrutiny They plodded together through the sand in silence Physically they were a superb couple but in raiment they resembled scarecrows Both of course were bareheaded The sailors Jersey and trousers were old and torn and the sea water still soughed loudly In his heavy boots with each step But Iris was in a deplorable plight Her hair fell in a great wave of gold i en brown strands over her neck and shoulders Every hairpin had vanish ed but with a few dexterous twists she coiled the flying tresses into a loose knot Her beautiful muslin dress was rent and draggled It was drying rapidly under the ever increasing pow er of the sun and she surreptitiously endeavored to complete the fastening of the open portion about her neck Suddenly he gave a glad Shout Byr Jove Miss Deane we are in lucks way There Is a fine plantain tree The pangs of hunter could not be resisted Although the fruit was hardly ripe

that the stray swarm of bees belong to the man who discovers them and that he may enter upon the premises of other parties and tafe possession of them It is also believed that the finding of a bee tree gives the right to cut down such tree and take the honey no matter upon whose land it may be found The supreme court of Iowa has rendered a decision to the effect that bees are not like wild

brig Wanderer we sighted a derelict and lowered a boat to give her an overhauling In making our way back we were caught in a squall and carried out of sight to leeward in ten minutes There wasnt over an hour of flayllght left us when the squall came down and when night fell thegusts bad set tled down Intoa steady gale At about 6 oclock each jmon snugged down to make himself as comfortable as possible and it was an hour later when the roar of breakers came to our ears Every one instantly divined that we were drifting down upon an Iceberg and that we were also perfectly helpless In the matter We bad lashed the oars together and flung them overboard for a drag to keep the boats head to the lea To have pulled in the drag would have been fatal Before the oars could have been detached we should have been in the trough of the sea Presently we drew nearer and see the ghostly glare of the berg through the darkness We jnissed the northwest corner of it by not moreI than a hundred feet and the spray of a recoiling wave halt filled our craft We drifted along the great island olI ice for twenty minutes before reaching Its southern face and then a current drew us into the lee of It and we knew that we were temporarily saved We got in our drag and put out the oars and after rowing nearly half a mile we found an inlet or bay making into the berg and ran into It This bay extended back into the berg a quarter of a mile and was about a hundred feet in width It was like a great river flowing down to the sea between high cliffs We were perfectly shelter ed here and by the light of the boats lantern we made a hearty meal off our provisions and all turned in for a sleep The weather was freezlngly cold but all were comfortably clad and we had the saIl of the boat to cover us in We could hear the wind howling above us and feel the berg tremble as the great waves flung themselves against the face but every man had a good sleep and woke un stout heartedfln the morn Ing I have called the mass of ire an iceberg Perhaps Ice island would foe a better term for It as when we came to inspect it by daylight we found it to be about two miles long on each faceThe gale was still piping away and a tremendous sea running when we awoke and of course we had no thought of leaving the shelter jve had The first move was to get to the top- at the berg and have a look for the ship Mr Davis the mate took this upon himself but he made no discov fry to reward his efforts He however got a good Idea of the lay of things and selected 4t place for land y Hn nOnr l f I Your Stock Printing

the bay and pulled to the east and landed upon a sort of shelf We had blocks of ice at baud to build a hut and before noon we had a cabin big enough to comfortably hold five of us and the stores from the boat In the afternoon in searching about we found three or four dwarf pines planks from a ships bottom a cooks galley and chairs and a table alt but the pines from the wreck of some merchant ship So intense was the cold that night that no man could have lived for five mlinites outdoors At midnight a sale came on The gale was the tail end of winter tn the fourth day the weather became so mild that the ice began to melt and the mate told us that our island was In a current and was being carried south at the rate of two miles ail hour We were In peril now from the breaking- up of the mass On the fifth day it grentrtWe wathed it for a day and seeing lti wldenl we took up our quarfers In what we thought safer position We were not an hour too soon The rift through the center Continued to wldeti and deepen and by and by there was a great crash and the berg separated in halves leaving us upon the larger one Bejfore night the wares hd trim med tbef base of our Berg of alMncum brances and we went drifting along so steadily and majestically that weal most forgot our peril For 1ree dn s and nights nothing happenEdwortht relating except that we discovered and managed to kllltwo seals hkfti nrnwlml upon the berg from the water to sun themselves As the winds were light our berg had no motion except frorfi the current On the morning of the tenth day before daylight had yet come we crashed Into another berg which had probably grounded and our escape from instant destruction was truly marvelous The south side of our berg was split off by the impact leaving our hut standing on the very edge of a cliff sixty feet high We had to cut our way through the back wall to escape Our boat went with the piece and within jtv hours the berg heeled over on its This movement took plate very showily and brought us on the crest of th lump instead of being on a shelf riearjthe water We soon had an other hut and next alay the berg being jquife stilt atgain we made an other findIFor the next eight days we moved steadily southward with the current our food being gone and eacbuman liv ing onj the leather of his belt or shoes On the morning of tlie nineteenth day we sighted a sail and raised a smoke and two hours later were safe aboard of the Frost King ef St Johns We had bad a rough and perilous time of It and had It been midwinter nil would have frozen to death but as it was all-

Whatever may be the fate of the particular liberal movement In Russia which led to the meeting of the zemstvo presidents at A t Petersburg it is plain that fpscope and character It is a repetition of the French awakening of 1789 Russias progress toward hu man liberty has undoubtedly been Jeopardized In recent years by overzealous agitators Nihilism stabbed Itself to death The men in the zemst vo movement are not rebels but liber ators not mischief making malcon tents but level headed reformers The Russian zemstvos are elective bodies having local powers In legisla tive and administrative affairs the members being chosen for three years by three classes of voters and the abolition of class distinction so 4s to virtually enfranchise the mass of peas entry Is the main object of the preseny liberal movement The voting class now Includes landed proprietors burgh ers and mechanics and peasants over twentyfive years of age who possess a certain amount of property or who are engaged

period began In 1890 Each andPere one several hundred In all The nobility doss possesses about onethird of the votes The institution was founded forty years ago by Alexander II as a step toward the liberalization of Rus Ysfa and is reaHy an evolution from the primitive commune and municipal cor poration Naturally the zemstvos come into close contact with the people and at various times notably In 1902 the gov ernment has circumscribed the fuse tlons of the zemstvos with the result 1ot Impairing their Influence For In washa gov ernment commission but the zemstvos were excluded from the

agricul ture lighten their tax burdens and In crease their allotments of land The pleas were rejected In the years of repression following ks90 the members of the zemstvos have been patiently working

rest with the people conjointlyI with the crown the czariand his people to grunt the peasantry full political and civil rights and that Increased powers be given to the zemstvos making them absolutely

keep it up she said It Is a duty I owe her I went to school with her mother That day she was specially hard with the young lady who for nearly three months now had been coming an hour each afternoon to write little notes and cast up troublesome accounts an office which she also undertook for several of Mrs Van Stylerts most intimate friendsIt on that same day that Mrs Van Stylert noticing the neatness of the girls prim collar and cuffs accused hereof being cut out for an old maid The secretary smiled as cheerfully ad muting the Impeachment Also that afternoon Tom Harroway stopped for 4 5 ociocl tea as had been the case many days of late As he sipped the cup that cheers but not inebriates his hostess expanded upon the charms of Charlotte Templeton laughinglyout he said Along with a good many other honest things she grumbled girlishness and all that sort of thing Everybody is too sophisticated nowadays prettl ness is swamped by so called artistic Ideas and so on Look at this room Everything Is pink that can be made pink and furbelowed and flouncy not a bit artistic The low tones in the turnlshingsof some of my friends give me the blues for a week after I have encountered them

mother might have treated a secretary If sec retaries had been a part of my moth ers miseries He shrugged his shoulders- I know she said you do not ad mire her Rather say he interposed I have scarcely noticed her the last month or soWhen y my severity as you call It attracted your attention to her she responded And she admitted only yesterday that she had not noticed you eitherHe gave her a quick look Oh yes she pursued I have told her that it has been a year since you left college and that now you are a full fledged idle man of fashion She curled her lip they used to curl their lips In the stories I read when I was young and said the world is no place for Idlers that a man should do his best to achieve a position not already established for him by his father Still I like her I went to school with her mother and I feel a sort of responsi bility for her That Is why I am try ing to make her realize her true posl i Lion She cant afford to give me up I have had her employed by my friends and could easily take that employment from her She was quite helpless when she came to me She bad nursed her mother for years and her Income died with her mother I advised her to become a secretary Hand me that fan please this heat is unbearable though the room was certainly not warm She continued to fan herself after Harroway had betaken himself to other scenes No wonder I am hot she told herself I am an advanced woman too though I never discovered that till recently However I intend to investigate the tendencies of today to find out if young men and young women are the same as they used to fee Ip spite of all their superiority to the little things of life But how vul far scientific experiments make you lee AH the same Tom Harroways beausfandtons mother r Next day when the secretary came Mrs Van Stylert was more difficult to please than ever Pardon me Amy she said at one moment when she had severely con lS1rlphbold and energetic for any lady to employ IotitIs all Tofu Hurrowtiys fault Charlotte Templeton is the most beautiful girl In town and no end of a catch and yet he Is letting Count De stalng have the Innings 1 am doing what I can though I am Interested in Tom he is my heir his father was one of my earliest beaus Think what a match it will be Charlotte Temple ton has a million in her own right and Tom will not have more than two thousand ja year till Idie The secretary arranged her papers Here are three Invitations to dinners she saidaAccept them all gloomily replied her employer I might as well kill myself that way as any other The secretary accepted for Mrs Van Stylert the three efforts tiward self Immolation Here then she said Is a letter from the Society For Assisting Indi gent Widows and Single Women Not a dollar responded Mrs Van SfylertOil will assist no Indigent sin gle woman And I am a widow myself Just then Harrow came In Wont you spare me a cup of tea he asked By the way said Mrs Van Stylert isnt this the day of the Templeton reception I dont go to afternoon receptions They are so unearthly But you do After my tea he replied- I dont begrudge you the tea returned his hostess but J should think you would want to be with Charlotte thecountHe caressed the flower in his buttonhole Charlotte and I understand each Other he informed her Whereupon she managed to overturn a teacup Then I am to congratulate you 1 she criedAano hastened to sayI meant nothing like that In my young days she said when a young man confessed that there was an understanding between him and a young lady the inference was that there wassomething between them So there is he rejoined We ars good friends comrades chums impossible and she shook her head No chumming among young people of opposite sexes As for you you dont know what you are missing Charlotte is just the wife for you and Really Amy you are In a great hurry it is ten minutes of 5 The secretary had risen I will make up the ten minutes to morrow the young lady said and tBcrrowayr tical said Mrs Van Stylert She dresses so stiffly And the went away because she hearbour private f ikLIt seems ito me he returned ob livious to the latter part ocber words that her costume Is very chosen for her work What a face she has fire She looks like her mother was the reply I went to school with her mother There now run to the Tem pletonsand Charlotte Thus dismissed Ham Jay left the house Outside he saw the secretary going down the street Now the secretary wigs annoyed Mrs Van Stylerts manner was becom ing atrocious Before thEe last two weeks the lady had been kind and friendly But for Mrs Vpn Styjerts kindness dud friendly Interest she would not have got along sO well But all that was changed now And what had she done to merit the slights to which she had recently been sub jetted True Tom Harroway had been frequently at the house of late developing a craving for afternoon tea that verged closely on dissipation and All the time he was there his hostess was full of encomiums for Charlotte Templeton and as full of miserable fault finding for the girl who acted in the capacity of secretary Harroway saw her going along In front of him He made up his mind that he must join her She majrhave seen him but she suddenly shot round a corner and when be reached thecor ner vIewHow women he mused Mrs Van Is letting herself out Maybe though she has been all along like this in private and now I go there so frequently she Is getting not tomlnd me And I am to blame And he went on to the Templeton reception In her roy room Mrs Van Stylert felt more comfortable than had been the case for days After all she said vaguely scien tific experimentsare wonderful things She rested her shin on her bands and looked Into the flare of the grate with a reminiscent expression In her eyes The secretary made up the ten min utes the following day and although Mr Harroway did not put in an ap pearance Mrs Van Stylert was quite difficult said that the plain manner In which the secretary wore her hair was disgraceful and felt that she could tell her so because she had gone to school with her mother quite agreed with her secretary who she insisted had so expressed herself that Tom Harro way was no use in the woi ld and that If he had n grain of manliness in his composition be would attempt a business career She said she felt she bald so criticise the youngj man in his r absence because his father lad been one of her earliest beaus A few days later and when this sort of medicine had been given in heroic doses Harreway caie for his cup of tea He was very cheerful Mrs Van Stylert was puzzled but wisely waited for him to explain himself Well he said at length I have two confessions to make One of them is that I am going into business John Templeton will have me for a partner You know we were graduated togeth er and have always been pals TIll other confession is that his sister Char lotte and 1 Oh fairly shrieked Mrs Van Sty- lert so it is arranged at last It took a long tinie I must say And now must tell me all the particulars ouI Harroway saw her QQlng along in front of htm Sefton if you dont mind we will de fer our notes till tomorrow I shall not need you today The girl jumped up StopMrs Van Stylert called after her Why not come this evening r shall not goout till 10 Come at 9 But demurred the secretary I fear At 9 oclock loudly repeated her employer We can then finish todays work No objections if you please The secretary took herself away trembling in every limb She had no intention of going at 9 oclock in the evening to do the work which she had contracted to perform from 4 t05 In the afternoon And to be spoken to like that before Tom Harroway As for Harroway he was furious Upon my word Mrs Van Stylert he said you have nec 1lesslyhutnUI ated a lady1 and went hastily from the house If he expected to see the secretary outside he was doomed to disappointment for when he reached the street she was novqjfere in sight Mrs Van Stylert had tier maid fetch her a cup of strong beef tea she felt so used up Amy thinks I want him to marry Charlotte And she said hereafter I shall sympathize with every scion tific experiment I hear of And human nature is the same as it ever was Holdj though What shall do when Amy conies tomorrow for of course she will not come this evening I sup pose I must chance it I am growing reckless And Charlotte means to marry the count Didnt her mother hint as much Jast night As for the secretary she had some thing to think about And In the warp and weft of her thought was a thread of satisfaction that a young man had seen the folly of being an Icllec and was about to become a useful member of society It Is always a satisfaction to know that our theories receive support And aproposj of that young man what sQrt of spirit did he think she possessed when she would put up with such treatment as be had witnessed Mrs Van Stylert inflict upon her And suppose he wcjs flirting with Miss Templeton She tossed her head She had proms ed the lady with whom she go tp the opera that night bOnrded1to having had two tickets her by a friend who was from the city and could not use them The thought of arroways possible flirtation with Miffs Templeton made her feel that she should lIke to look her best that evening Her hair was her first care and she arranged It so as to sot off Its abundance and color As though It would be In good taste to wear It this way when I am attend ing to business she said loftily Next she donned a white gown full of fleeciness rind rippling with ribbons She looped in the glass and was not dissatisfied with the reflection- It was then 8 oclock and she sat down and waited for the lady who was to escort her to the opera In stead the lady had togo and tumble down the back stairs and received such contusions and abrasions as made It impossible for her to stir from the house that night Of course the stjcre tary could not go alone so she started to take off her finery All at once the enormity of Mrs Van Stylerts treat ment of her struck her more cruelly than ever Should she keep on accept ing that ladys favors Not If I had a dozen ntotbera she said uand she had been to school with every one of them She would inform Mrs Van Stylert tomorrow that she must decline to act as her secretary any longer Tomorrow It was not yet 0 oclock Mrs Van Stylert bad commanded her to come to her at 9 Why not gp to f night and tt her not to expect Her next day ard just as she was let that arrogan schoolmate of her mother see her possibilities as a well dressed woman It was all very foolish very girlish but she did t ot care to be considered a dowdy anymore thuns h would accept gratuitous contumely A maidservant was coerced and covered with a long cloak the secretary went forth on an errand prompted by righteous indignation At about the same time Mrs Van Stylert was issuing from her maids ministrations also In Opera array She seldom courted music until late In the evening when as she said she reached Wagners agony and soon had It over She looked up as her eeretary entered the rosy room wbosqshnded candles cast a most becoming light perhaps she had never been sd scared in all her life before She hid not expected Amy and the brillirincy of the girls eyes and the loom on her face told her that a battle was imminent The secret ry eased the clasp ot her cloakthere was a pulse in her throat that hurt when she stood in the herFor mothers old friend who had signal service to her and noted that Mrs VanStylerts face now showed kindness and even admiration her courage seemed to ebb from her 0 Mrs Van Stylert was the first to speak I am so sorry Amy child she said to bring you out at night I wasnt In earnestNot earnest At that the secre tarys courage lowed back again Was she to be made sport of all around I came she said to tell you to look out for another secretary I am no longer In your employ Mrs Van Stylert regarded her In silence knowing not what to say odV mirIng the girls well arranged halt her face that was beautiful In Us excitement but more than all her spirit and vigor Now Harroway had felt uncofutortI eveningBythefie was quite of opinion that he should- iRitsat Mrs Van Styterts npmore He refused to bell further wt s of the humiliation of a poor girl at the 1edonthemaking marriage arrangements for him Confound the money First he must set Mrs Van right with regard to Charlotte Templeton She had cut hImorwhen he had begun to tell her about Charlottes engagement to the count taking it for granted that he himself was the happy man A woman like that must not remain un corrected in such a mistake And if the secretary thought he was flirting He wiped the perspiration from his brow But why shouldnt he go to Mrs Vans this evening not waiting till to morrow afternoon By tomorrow some one or other might be already told of his presumed engagement tp Charlotte Templeton It Irritated him mightily to think of such a report being attributed to him even though the mistake might be corrected later on lie went On the threshold of the pink room he paused Inside the two women confronted each other Another thing the secretary was saying You tell me that you have Informed Mr Harroway that I despise him for having no desire to make his way In the world 1 never said so I told you that everyman in my opin- Ion should do his best to carve out a niche for himself In the world Just then the speaker saw Tom Har roway Her hand that had clutched the cloak at her throbbing throat fal tered and the long loose garment slid down to the floor and she stood revealed In a fleecy wuite gown a fair vision of girlish charm Hurrowuy took a step toward her she looked so sweet and lovable- I should like he said tothat IsI wish to correct something Nonsense interrupted Mrs Van Stylert In a loud voice and refusing to let the girl use her as a shield q know you are not engaged to Charlotte e Templetoii While you may not know It I am a bit of a scientist which accounts for my recent behavior toward you and Amy Ah I must see my maid She fairly tottered from the room closing the door after her noting as she went away that the secretary let Harroway take her hand the young woman and the young man looking preposterously happy if somewhat consciousIn sleeping room jhe sank on the side of the bed as her maid ran to her Beef teal she managed to say I experimented scientifically to see if they couldnt be made to fall In love with each other and something about going to school with somebodys moth er and having somebody elses father for one of her earliest beaus At that time in the rose colored room Harroway talked with the secretary- I came tonight to have it out with her he said Ob did you she cried blithely was waiting to see when you should oPso I should never have done It myself if I waited tin doomsday atterIadmiringly She shrugged her shoulders- So much of the Jest la gone she said Mrs Van hasbeen playing us all the time the mean old dear wlthj Just then the mean old dear rushed Into the room She had found It Im possible to keep away O h7rshe said msTomall

of his razor despite all the advice that has r been given to him In the public prints from time to time says a writer in the St Louis GlobeDemocrat- He will get a good razor and use it day after day then wonder why at the end of a short time it loses its edge even though he strops it most careful ly A razor needs brief intervals of rest or it will grow dull no matter trwliat efforts are made to keep It sharp If you have a good razor and It ap pears to be losing its edge Just try a rest for it instead of having it sharpen ed tip again The chances are that when you put It intb use again atthe rexpiration of three or four days it will sharp as if it had been care fully hoSed A man who shaves himself ought tot have at least two razors and use these r on alternate mornings then if his ra zors are all right fee will have but lit tie trouble with them It is also possi ble to strop a razor too much Itshould not be stropped for more than half a minute before shaving and care should sbe taken never to bear heavily on the strop while doing this Let the razor rest lightly on the leather and the best r results will be gained After finishing a shave strop the razor once more fora few seconds and this will insure a much better condi tion for it r Hew te Serve Orange Jelly Care and a little time are needed to serve orange Jelly in the following way Select even sized oranges and cut them in

sieteia L c BOtIIg VOTE IY The Value 0Of Experience Original Captain Jacob Tarr bound from Mar thas Vineyard to the south Pacific ocean on a whaling voyage having recently lost his fwlfe resolved to take their only child a daughter barely seventeen years old with him in his ship Harpoon Irene Tarr was a love ly girl in face figure and disposition and her father adored her He had not yet begun to trouble himself let any young man should take her away from him- Captain Tarr had spent all his sailor life haling oil the Atlantic ocean but now that the stock of whales was run ping low there he was obliged to turn his attention toa field with which he was not familiar In looking about for a man who had had experience there he hit upon Frpnk Bristol a young fellow who had gone out before the magt six years before and made two voyages on the Pacific Since he was but twenty the captain gave him no higher berth than third mate but he was the only officer aboard the Harpoon that had had any considera ble experience in the Pacific ocean Tliere Is love that comes from long association and love that comes with a single glance of eyes The latter was the case with Frank Bristol andIrene Tarr She saw a young fellow in sail or trousers and pea jacket with a light st pabead of curly hair a fekrless blue eye and succumbed He saw a girl with that shade of auburn hair that Is called Titian or golden with contrasting dark brown eyes and he bent the knee During the voyage the two met occasionally but Bristol saw no more of her than did his brother officers Nevertheless the sputtering flame that had beenklndled grew to a consuming fire- Meanwhile Captain Tarr walked the quarter deck oblivioios to the fact that a sailor without a cent arid with only a common school education had won his daughter on whom every advantage had been lavished and who would herit 100000 he bad accumulated in whale grease The Harpoon had sailed as far as the Hawaiian Islands then turned south ward touching at the Marquesas from which she bent her course eastward Captain Tarr was thus far well pleased with his voyage He had on board a goodly supply of whale oil and one feature he had somewhat dreadedhis inexperience as to wind and weather in the Pacific had not troubled him at all r Talk about winds in particular waters he said after being out a couple of months My opinion is that a man who has learned to sail a ship In one ocean should know how to sail her in any ocean I find no difficulty here That same evening Frank Bristol had the watch while Captain Tarr was pacing the deckj Suddenly the cap thin was surprised to hear Bristol give the order Man the weather braces What do you mean by giving such an order as that Mr Bristol Have you lost your senses Wind coming was the laconic re IThend leaning over the Tail scanned the sea and the sky from east to west Tfieres no change coming that I can see Drop the braces men Hold the braces I say said Bris tel with all the firmness of an admiral of the navy Is this mutiny roared the captain You young rascal Ill teach you that I havent been a sailor for twenty years for nothing and 1 command this ship Men drop the braces The men overawed by the superior authority of the captain let go the braces or rather they were about to do so when Bristol cried out defiantly Dont a man bf you drop a rope for an instant as you value your lives He had scarcely spoken the words when there was a sudden drop in the wind The sails hung listless only flapping as the vessel rolled At the moment Irene came on deck Her corn lug was fortunate for her father was flustered with the insubordination of his mate and puzzled at the dropping of the wind Haul Haul taut Everyman haul cried Bristol The yards swung round to meet a wind that must come out of the opposite quarter to the one from which it had been blowing They were no sooner Inpo sition than the water darkened the disturbance coming with lightning speed and a mighty wind struck the ship The Harpoon shuddered bent over to the leeward till the tip ends of the yards almost touched the water then with a bound leaped forward Irene Tarr WOB blown into her fa thers inrms and he took her down into the cabin When he returned the worst was over and the ship was scud ding along safe and sound The cap tain stood on the quarter deck and called for Bristol to come aft The men watched the mate wondering what reception he would receive They could not hear what was said but they saw the captain grasp the mates hand with evident satisfaction and grati tude This was what was said Young man if that wind had struck us without the sails being shifted she would have gone over and never right ed V owe our lives to you including my daughters whom I value more than ship cargo and crew Now my boy what can I do for you 41 want what you value moat your daughter aback1athe request then but tine time came when Bristol aided by tene secured the coveted reward JAMES CARTER SCOTT BROOKSVILLE

of the greatest precautions against the admission ot water Into the hold it is almost impossible to ex tinguish it The only method that ever avails is to stop every crack with soap so that no air can reach the lime Sometimes this will stop the tire but often these fires will burn for weeks till the vessel sinks beneath the water a mass of charred embers holding together When a vessel with a cargo of lime once catches fire it Is sure death to go below Not long ago a schooner with a cargo of this commodity caught fire and was sealed up as tightly as possible The crew was composed of the captain and his two sons One day the latter went to sleep on the deck and their father imprudently entered his cabin shutting the door behind him When they awakened and found their father missing they supposing that he had fallen overboard sailed the ship for home quite unconscious that they were bearing the body of their father with them WrltlMff aBd Dictation The modern method 6f letter writing composition through the agency of the stenographer Is having a peculiar effect upon the popular use of the Ian gauge It must be evident to even the noncritical observer that carelessness and diffuseness of expression have become a feature and a fault of correspondence from the reproach of which it was quite free in the earlier days when pen and ink were directly em ployed by the Individual to the end of giving form and coherence to his Idea Probably when dictation under the present system becomes more of a fix ed habit arid Institution the human mind will become so accustomed to it that it will operate more rapidly and as accurately with such assistance as under the old plan in which the writer only dictated to himself Yet to him with whom pen und ink have always been potent solvents of thought the change Involved in dictation must bring with it a serious embarrassment in the matter of adequately denoting ones though ts Philadelphia Ledger ill InvenloBn Printer It
