he has located the seat ot the soul Is now attested by Professor Henry Price a retired musician of Mount Vernon N L who sought to obtain permission of Bellevue hospital In New York experiment with dying patients and take photographs of the soul in flight from the body says the New York Journal In explaining his theory of the souls passage and the chance ot photographing It Price said The soul of tr man Is soft and gelatinous small practically shapeless and sltuated beneath the first rib Below the Adams apple in a maxi and In a woman at the base of her throat Is a spot of little or no resistance It is from this place when the hour of death has come that the soul must be taken It does not pass like a shadow It iSlIOf1l flight The soul must be drawn out by an angel sent by God to perform this operation And thls seat of life is transferred warm palpitating to a body the counterpart of the one it has left It is substance material and could be as well caught by the camera as the human face I am not in any sense a spiritualist In fact I believe the first effect of my photography of the soul would be to annihilate their doctrine Neither do I believe In transmigration as general ly understood I do not think by any means that all men have souls You mayor may not have a soul according as you have merited It from the Deity If you have Insulted him If you kav outraged ijis laws you will remain th brute and fall Into dust whence you came There is np such thing as eter nity r Do I not think the soul goes on Jbodyworn It Is diseased to some extent But even If there were no disease It still must wear out like a machine ItfIs the same with the soul When the body has run Its course the soul is wrenched from its resting place by the angel and put Into another body Just like

around among th m was a half grown rat which had gnawed in during the night andwhich seemed to be enjoying itself very much Occasionally the rodent would come toward the front of the window and make a leap against the glass striking eight or twelve inches above the base Each time it did this the little animal would after making the leap rear on its hind feet and with its forepaws push something in its mouth which it seemed to devour with a relish After the rat had repeated this queer performance several times Mr Smith noticed that it was feeding on the common house flies whichwere the window and that every time it paneofsects The performance was so unusual Mr Smith slipped back a few teet trom whejygffe stood and beckoned several men on the opposite side of the street to come over and

Novelized From the Play by ARTHUR HORNBLOWrCOPYRIGHT 1906 BY G W DILLfNGHAM COMPU IY Shirley breathed a sigh of relief It- was so Important that her Identity should remain a secret As daughter of a supreme court judge she had to bo most careful She would not embar TOSS her father for anything in the WorldS Jefferson asked her Have you heard from home recent 1yJ Thad a letter from father last week Everything was going on at home as when I left Father says he misses me sadly and that mother is ailing as usual She smiled and Jefferson smiled too They both knew by experience that nothing really serious ailed Mrs Ross more who was a good deal of a hypochondriac and always so filled with aches and pains that on the few occa sions when che really felt well she was genuinely alarmed The cab stopped suddenly In front of beautiful gilded gates It was the Luxembourg and through the tall rail ings they caught a glimpse of well kept lawns splashing fountains and richly dressed children playing From the distance came the stirring strains of a brass band The coachman drove up to the curb And Jefferson jumped down assisting Shirley to alight gardensfollowingthe came to where the music was The band of an infantry regiment was play ink and a large crowd had gathered Many people were sitting on the chairs provided for visitors for the modest fee of two sous others were promenading round and round a great circle having the musicians in its center The dense foliage of the treesoverhead afforded a perfect shelter from the hot rays of the sun and the place was so inviting and interesting so cool and so full of sweet perfumes and sounds appealing to and satisfying the senses that Shlr ley wished they had more time to spend there Isnt it delightful here said she fI could stay here forever couldnt you With you yes answered Jeffer son with a significant smile Shirley tried to look angry She strictly discouraged these conventional sentimental speeches which con stantly flung her sex in tier face Now you know I dont like you to talk that way Mr Ryder Its most undignified Please be sensible Quite subdued Jefferson relapsed Into a sulky silence Presently he saidI wish you wouldnt call me Mr Ryder I meant to ask you this before You know very well that youve no great love for the name and If you persist youll end by including me In your hatred of the hero of your book Shirley looked at him with amused curiosity r What do you mean she asked What do you want me to call you Oh I dont know he stammered rather intimidated by this self possessed young woman who looked him calmly through and through Why not call me Jefferson Mr Ryder is so formal Shirley laughed outright a merry unrestrained peal of honest laughter which made the passersby turn their heads and smile too commenting the while on the stylish appearance of the two Americans whom they took for sweethearts After all reasoned Shir ley he was right They had been to t gether now nearly every hour in the day for over a month It was absurd to call him Mr Ryder So addressing him with mock gravity she said jmcanJetrcrsonJefferson from this time on only re memberhere she shook her gloved finger at him warnlngly mlnjl you behave yourself No more such senti mental speeches as you made just now Jefferson beamed He felt at least two inches taller and at that moment he would not have changed places with any one in the world To hide the embarrassment his gratification caused him he pulled out his watch exclaimedWhy quarter past six We shall have all we can do to get back to the hotel and dress for dinner Shirley rose at once although loath to leave I bad no Idea It was so late she said How the time flies Then mockingly she added Come Jefferr son be a good boy and find a cab They passed out of the gardens by the gate facing the Theatre de lOdeon where fiiere was a long string of fiacres for hire They got into one and in fifteen minutes they were back at the Grand hotel At the office they told Shirley that her aunt had already come in and gone to her room so she hurried talrs to dress for dinner while Jeffersonpro ceeded to the Hotel de lAthenee on the same mission He had still twenty five minutes before dinner time and he needed only ten minutes for a wash and to jump Into his dress suit so In stead pf going directly to his hotel he sat down at the Cafe de la Pali He was thirsty and calling for a vermouth rappe he told the garcon to bring him t xlso the American papers The waiter returned with the ver mouth and the newspapers ill he could find were the London Times which he pronounced Teems anti some issues of the New York Herald The papers were nearly a month old but he did not care for that Jeffer son idly turned over the pages of the Herald His thoughts were still run ning on Shirley and hdwas paring little attention to what he was read- Ing Suddenly however his eyes est jed on a headline which made bin sit up with a start It rend as follows Judge Rossmore Impeached Justice of the Supreme Court to Be Tried On Bribery Charges The dispatch which was dotted Washington two weeks back went on Mind you behave yourself to say that serious charges affecting the Integrity of Judge Rossmore had been made the subject of congression al inquiry and that the result of the Inquiry was so grave that a demand for impeachment would beat once sent to the senate It added that tho charges grew out of the recent decision in the Great Northwestern Mining com pang case it being alleged that Judge Rossmore had accepted a large sum of money on condition of his handing down a decision favorable to the com pany Jefferson was thunderstruck He read the dispatch over again to make sure there was no mistake No it was very plain Judge Rossmore of Madison avenue But how preposterous what a calumny He paid for his vermouth and hurried away to his hotel to dress It was Just striking 7 when he re entered the courtyard of the Grand hotel Shirley and Mrs Blake were waiting for hlmIThey drove up the stately Champs Elysecs past the monumental Arc de Trloinphe and from there down to the Bois All were singularly quiet Mrs Blake was worrying about her new gown Shirley was tired and Jefferson could not banish from his mind tile ter rlble news he had just read He avoid ed looking at Shirley until the latter noticed It and thought she must have offended him In some way She was more sorry than she would have him knew for with all her apparent cold ness Jefferson was rapidly becoming very Indispensable to her happiness- It was nearly 10 oclock when they had finished They sat a little longer listening to the gypsy music weird and barbaric Very pointedly Shirley re marked I for one preferred the music this afternoon Why Inquired Jefferson Ignoring the AJoiceBecause she retorted rather crossly But she could never remain angry long and when they said good rilgl t she his pered demurely Are you cross with me Jeff He turned his head aw ty and she saw that his face was singularly drawn and grave Cross no Good night God bless you he said hoarsely gulping down a lump that rose In his throat Then grasping her hand lie hurried away Completely mystified Shirley and her companion turned to the office to get the key of their room As the man handed it to Shirley he passed her also a cablegram which mail just come She changed color She did riijt like telegrams She always had a dread of them for wlth her sudden news was usually bad news Could this site thought explain Jeffersons strange behavior Trembling she tore open theenyelope and read dome homc at once MOTHER CHAPTER V were four days out from THEY Two days more and would sight Sandy Hook Shirley would know the worst She had caught the North German Lloyd boat at Cherbourg two days after receiving the cablegram from InslstedIgo back the e same w Besides was not Mr Ryerreturning home oh the same shlo He would be company and r protection both But Mrs Blake was bent on making the voyage She had not seen her sister for many years andImoreover this sudden summons JIterribleshowed her the newspaper article with Its astounding and heartrending news about her father had almost prostrated Shirley The blow was all the greater for being so entirely unlooked for That the story was true she could not doubt Her mother would not have cabled except under the gravest cir cumstances Wlrt alarmed Shirley still more was that she had no direct news of her father For a moment her heart stood still Suppose the shock of this shameful accusation had killed him Her blood froze In her veins she clinched her fists and dug her nails Into her flesh as she thought of the dread uponhlnmembered his last kind words when he came to the steamer to see her off nnd his kiss when he said g6odby and she had noticed a tear of which he ap poured to be ashamed The hof tears welled up In her own eyes and coursed unhindered down her cheeks Suddenly she heard a familiar step behind her and Jefferson joined her at the rail The wind was due west and blowing half a gale so where they were standing one bf the most expos ed parts of theshlpMt was difficult to keep ones feet to say nothing of hear Ingcany one speak Its pretty windy here Shirley shouted Jefferson steadying himself against a stanchion Dnt you want to walk a little He had begun to call her by her first name quite naturally as if it were n matter of course Indeed their rein lions had come to be more like those of brother and sister than anything else Shirley was too much troubled over the news from home to have a mind for other things and In her distress she had turned to Jefferson for advice and help as she would have looked to an elder brother He was sorry for Judge Rossmore of wouldotdrawal of the charges That his fa ther would use his Influence he had no doubt but meantime he was selfish enough to be glad for the opportunity It save him to be a whole week alone with Shirley Thus events combined with the weather conspired to bring Shirley and Jefferson more closely together The sea had been rough ever since they sailed keeping Mrs Blake confined ontlnuously1heyanothers company and slowly un consciously there was taking root lIt their hearts the ger pf the only real and lasting lovetire love born of something higher than mere physical attraction the nobler more enduring affection that is born of mutual sympathy association and companionship Jefferson had been casting furtive glances at his companion and as he noted her serious pensive face he thought how pretty she was He won dered what she was thinking of and suddenly Inspired no doubt by the mys terious power that enables some people to read the tin ughts of others he said abruptly thoughtsYouShe was startled for a moment but imriiediately recovered her self posses sion It never occurred to her to deny It She pondered for a moment and then replied You area right Jeff I was thinking of you How did you guess He leaned over her and took her hand She made no resistance Her delicate slender hand lay passively in his big brown one and met His grasp frankly cordially He whispered What were you thinking of megood or bad Good of course How coulcj I think anything bad of you She turned her eyes on him In won derment then she went on I was wondering how a girl could distinguish between the feeling she has for a man she merely likes and the IosyfsJefferson as to lose no word that might fall from those coveted lips In what category would I be placed he asked I dont quite know she answered laughingly Then seriously she added Jeff why should we net like children Your ai tionq more than your words have told me that you love me I have known it all along tf I have ppeared cold and Indifferent It Is b cause She hesitated Because echoed Jelters n lously as If his whole future liependcd- on that reason Because was not sure ofl myself Would It be womanly or honorable on my part to encourage you unless I felt I reciprocated your feelings You are young One day you will be v ryrlcli The whole world lies bet re you There are plenty of women wlo would willingly give you their love1 No no he burst out In vigorous protest It Is you I want Shirley you alone Grasping her hand more closely he went qnr passion vibrating In every noteo his voice I love you Shirley Ive loved you from the very first evening I niet you I wantyou to be my wife Shirley looked straight up Into the blue eyes so eagerly bent down on hers so entreating In their expression and In a gentle voice full of emotion she answered Jefferson you have done me the greatest honor a man can do a woman Dont ask me to answer you now I like you very much I more than like you Whether it is love I feel for you that I have not yet determined Give me tune My present trouble and then my literary work I know agreed Jefferson that this is hardly the time to speak of such matters Your father leas first call on your attention But as to your literary work I do not understand Ihaveto crave for more I realize that mar riage would put an extinguisher on all f1lrectlonI pl c 1 there Is no room In marriage for n woman baviug personal ambitions of her own Once married her duty Is fo her husband and her children not herself That is right he replied but which Is likely to give you greater joy a literary success or a happy wife- hood When you have spent your best years and given the public your best work they will throw you over for some new favorite Youll find your self an old woman with nothing more substantial to show as your life work than that questionable asset a literary reputation How many literary reputation today conceal an aching heart and find it difficult to make both ends meet How different with the woman who married young and obeys natures behest by contributing her share to the process of evolution Her life Is spent bask g in the affection of her husband and tiits chubby smiles of her dimpled babes and vtieu In the course of time she finds herself In the twilight of her life she has at her feet a new genera tion of her own flesh and blood Isnt that better than a literary reputation He spoke so earnestly that Shirley looked at him In surprise She knew he was serious hilt she had not suspected that he thought so deeply on these matters Her heart told her that he was uttering the true philosophy of the ages She said Why Jefferson you talk like a book Perhaps you are I have no wish to be a bjuestocklngrtrnd de serted in my old argar from it But give me time to thlnk Let us first as certain the extent of this disaster which has overtaken my father Then If you still care for me and if I have not changed my mind here she glanced slyly at hlmwe will resume our discussion Again she held out her hand which he had released Is it a bargain she asked Its a bargain he murmured raIs- ing the white hand to his lips A fierce longing rose within him to take her in his arms and kiss passionately theI in A7tIts a bargain lie murmured mouth that lay temptingly near his own but his courage failed him After all he reasoned he had not yet the right A few minutes later they left the deckand went downstairs to dress for dinner That same evening they stood again at the rail watching the mysteri ous phosphorescence us It sparkled In the moonlight Her thoughts traveling faster than the ship Shirley sud denly asked Do you really think Mr Ryder will use his Influence to help my father Jefferson set his jaw fast and the familiar Ryder gleam dune Into his eyes as he responded Why not My father Is all power ful He has made and u imade judges and legislators and even presidents Why should he not be ble to put a stop to these preposterous proceed ings I will go to him directly we land and well see what ian be done So the time on shlpboar had passed Shirley alternately buoyed up with hope and again depre sed by the gloomiest forebodings 1bc following night they passed Fire Is and and thi next day the huge steamer dropped an chor at quarantine CHAPTER VI theATranscontinental railroad In New York and during that time net ther John Burkett Ryder nor Tudgej Rossmore had been idle The former had Immediately set In motion the machinery he controlled In the legislature at Washington while the Judge neJIlected no step to vindicate himself before the public Ryder for reasons of his own prob ably because he wished to make the blow the more crushing when it did fall had Insisted on the proceedings at the board meeting being kept a profound secret and some time elapsed before the newspapers got wind of tlu coming congressional inquiry No one had believed the stories about Judg Rossmore but now that a quasi o clnlI seal had been set on the current gos sip there was a howl of virtuous indignation from the journalistic muckrakers What was the country coming to they cried In double leaded type After the eWbeZZllng byllte insurance officers the rascality of the railroads the looting of city treasuries the greed of the trusts the grafting of the legislator had arisen a new and more scrlons scandal the corruption of the Judic ary The last bulwark of the nation had fallen The country lay helpless nt the mercy of legalized saudbaggers Even the judges wereIno longer to be trusted The spected one among them all had been unable to resist the tempter The su preme court the living voice of theIconstitution was honeycombed graft Public life wits rotten to the coreINeither the newspapers nor the pub lie stopped to ascertain the truth or JudgeIbribery story furnished the daily sen sation which newspaper editors and newspaper readers must have The world Is ever more prompt to belleve ill rather than good of a man and no one except in Rossmores immediate circle of friends entertained the slight est doubt of his guilt It was common knowledge that the big Interests were behind the proceedings and that Judge Rossmore was a scapegoat sacrificed by the system because he had been blocking their game If Ross more had really accepted the bribe and few now believed him spotless he himIthe party which was In the minority and the Interests controlling a ma jority In the house it was a foregone conclusion that the inquiry would be against him andthat a demand would at once be made upon the senate for his impeachment Almost prostrated by the misfortune which had sp suddenly and unexpectedly come upon him Judge nossmore was like a man demented His reason seemed to be tottering he spoke and acted like a man In a dream Naturally he was entirely incapacitated for work and he had applied to Washing ton to be temporarily relieved from his judicial duties He was instantly granted a leave of absence and went at once to his home in Madison avenue where he shut himself up in his library sitting for hours at his desk wrestling with documents and legal tomes in a pathetic endeavor to find some way out trying to elude this net in which unseen hands had entangled himWhat an end to his career To have struggled and achieved for half a cen- turyr to have built up a reputation year by year as a man builds a house brick by brick only to see the whole crumble to his feeSttlke dust To have gained the respect of the country to have made a name as the most incor ruptible of public servants and now to be branded as a common bribe taker Could hfc be dreaming It was too in credible What would his daughter sayhis rare r Ah the thought of the expression of Incredulity and won der on het face when she heard the news cut him to the heart like a knife thrust Yet he mused her very unwillingness to believe It should really be his consolation Ah his wife and his child they knew he had been In nocent of wrongdoing The very idea was ridiculous At most he had been careless Yet be was certainly to blame He ought to have seen the trap so carefully prepared and into which he had walked as if blindfolded That extra 50000 worth of stock on which he had never received a cent in terest had been the decoy in a carefully thought out plot They the plot ters well knew how Ignorant he was of financial matters and he had been an easy victim Who would believe I Is story that the stock had been sent to him with a plausibly worded letter to the effect that It represented a bonus on his own Investment Now he came to think of It calmly and reasonably he would not believe It himself As usual he had mislaid or destroyed the secretarys letter and there was only his word against the companys books substantiate what would appear n inotft improbable if not impossible oc currence It was his conviction of his own good faith that made his present dilemma nil the more cruel Had he really been n grafter had he really taken the stock asa bribe he would not care so much for then he would have foreseen and discounted the chances of exposure Yes there was no doubt possible He was the victim of a con spiracy there was an organized plot to ruin him to get him out of the way The interests feared him resented ills judicial decisions and they had halted at nothing to accomplish their purpose How could he fight them back what could he do to protect hlni self He had no proofs of a conspiracy lhis enemies worked in the lark was no way In which he could reach them or know who they were He thought of John Burkett Ryder Alt he remembered now Ryder was the man who had recommended the investment In Alaskan stock Of course Why did he not think of It be fore He recollected that at the time he had been puzzled at receiving so much stock and he had mentioned It to Ryder adding that the secretary had told him Ii was customary Ob why bad he not kept the secretarys letter Hut Ryder would certainly remember- It lie probably still had his two letters In which he spoke of making the Investment If those letters could be produced at the congressional inquiry they would clear him at once so losing no time and filled with renewed hope he wrote to the Colossus a strong man ly letter which would have melted an Iceberg urging Mr Ryder to come forward now at this critical time and clear him of this abominable charge or in any case to kindly return the two letters he must have In his possession as they would co far to help f him at the trial Three days passel and no reply from Ryder On the fourth came a polite but frigid no from Mr Ryders private secretary Mr Ryder had received Judge Ross mores letter rind In reply begged to state that be had a vague recollection of some convdrsatlon with the judgff In regard to investments but he did not think he had advised the purchase of any particular stock as that was something he never did on principle trlendsIletterIhaving written to Mr Ryder in regard to having received more stock than he had bought of that Mr Ryder had no recollection whatever Judge Ross more was probably mistaken as to the Identity of his correspondent Here gretted he could not be of more service to Judge Rossmore and remained his very obedient servant It was very evident that no help was to be looked for in that quarter There was even decided hostility In Ryder reply Could It be true that the financier P was really behind these attacks upon his character Was Itposslble that one man merely to make more money would deliberately ruin his fellow man whose hand he had grasped in friend ship He had been unwilling to be r lieve It when his friend exJudge Stott had pointed to Ryder as the author of all his misfortunes but this unsympathetic letter with Its falsehoods its lies plainly written all over its facer was proof enough Yes there was now no doubt possible John Burkett Ryder was his enemy and what an enemy Many a man had committed suicide when he had incurred tlenmitt of the Colossus Judge Rossiffore completely discouraged bowed his head to the Inevitable but he sent for his old friend exJudge Stott They were lifelong friends having become acquainted nearly thirty years ago at the law school at the time when both were young men about to enter on a public career SJott who was Rossmores junior had begun as a lawyer In New York and soon acquired n reputation in criminal practice He afterward became assistant district attorney and later when a vacancy occurred in the city maglstrature he was successful in securing the appointment On the bench he again met his old friend Rossmore and the two men once more became closely intimateyThe regular cour t hours however soot palled on a man of Judge Stotts nerv longbeforehis criminal practice He was stilt a young man not yet fifty and full of vigor and fight He had a blunt man ner but his heart was in the right place and he had a record ps clean Ins his close shaven face He was a hard worker a brilliant speaker and one pC the cleverest cross examiners at the liar This was the man to whom Judge Rossmore naturally turned for legal assistance Stott was out west when he first heard of the proceedings against his old friend and this Indignity put upon the only really honest man in public life whom he knew so Incensed him that he was already hurrying back to his aid when the summons reached him Meantime a fresh and more seriouS calamity had overwhelmed Judge Rossmore Everything seemed to corn blue to break the spirit of this man who had dared defy the power of organized capital Hardly had the news of tho congressional inquiry been made public than the financial world was startled by an extraordinary slump In Wall street There was noth ing in the news of the day to Justify a decline but prices fell and fell The bears had It all their own way the big Interests hammered stocks all along the line coppers especially being the object of attack The market closed feverishly and the next day the same tactics were pursued From the opening on selling orders coming from no one knew where prices fell to nothing a stampede followed and before long It became a panic- Pandemonium reigned on the floor of the Stock Exchange White faced di shoveled brokers shouted and struggled like men possessed to execute the or1aders of their clients Big financial houses which stood to lose millions on a falling market rallied and by rush orders to buy attempted to stem tho tide but all to no purpose One firm after another went by the board unable to weather the tempest until just before closing time the stock ticket announced the failure of the

was nothing like what they pad been accustomed to but It was clean and comfortable and Its Mrs Rossmore said rather tactlessly beggars cannot be choosers Per haps it would not be for long Instant possession was to be had so a deposit was paid ou the spot and a few days later Rossmores left their mansion on Madison avenue and took up their residence In Massapequa where their advent created quite a fluster in local social circles Stott was given a room in the cbt tage so that he might be near at hand to work with the Judge in the prepara tion of the defense and he came out from the city every evening It was now June The senate would not take action until it convened in December but there was a lot of work to be done and no time to be lost The evening following the day of their arrival they were sitting on the porch enjoyhfc the cool evening air after dinner The judge was smoking He wag not a slave to the weed but he enjoyed a quiet pipe after meals claim Ing that it quieted his nerves and en abled him to think more clearly Be sides it was necessary to eep at bay the ubiquitous Long Islantl mosquito Mrs Rossmore bad remained for t moment in the dining room to admonish Eudoxia their new and only maid of all wprk not to wreck too much of the crockery when she removed the din ner dishes Suddenly Stott who was pe using an evening paper asked By the way Wheres your daughter Does she know of this radical change in your affairs Judge Rossmore started By what mysterious agency had this man pent trated his own most intimate thoughts He was himself thinking of Shirley that very moment and by some Inex pHcable meanstelepathy modern psy- chologistsI called itthe thought cur rent had crossed to Stott whose mind being in full sympathy was exactly attuned to

the Judge Incredulously He wa so unac customed to seeing his ailing vacillating wife do anything on her Initiative and that lit seemed impossible You cabled for ghlrley he repeated Yes replied Mrs

usual condition was disheveled her face was all askew and when she dressed up she looked llke a valentine Her greatest weakness was a propensity for smash ing dishes and when reprimanded she would threaten to take her traps and skidoo This news of the arrival ot- a daughter failed to till her with en thuslasm Firstly it meant more work secondly she had not bargain ed for it When she took the place It was on the understanding that the family consisted only of jin elderly gentleman and his wife that there was practically no work good wages plenty to eat with the privilege of an even ing out when she pleased Instead of this millennium she soon found Stott stalled as a permanent guest and now a daughter was to be foisted on her Xo wonder hardworking girls were getting sick and tired of house workThat evening Stott and the judge came home earlier than usual and from their dejected appearance Mrs Rossmore divined bad news The judge was painfully silent throughout the meal and Stott was unusually grave Finally the latter took her aside and broke It to her gently In spite of their efforts and the efforts of their friends the congressional inquiry had resulted In a finding against the judge and u demand hud already been made upon the senate for his Impeach ment They could do nothing now but fight It In the senate with all the In fluence they could muster It was go Ing to be hard but Stott was confident thptrlght would prevail After din ner as were sitting In silence oh the porch each measuring the force of this blow which they had expected yet had always hoped to yard

sail the judge- I wish we had gone to meet her ourselves sighed Ills wife The judge was silent and for a moment or two he puffed vigorously at his pipe as wAs his habit when dlsI turbcd mentally Then

noticed that his wife wAs weeping He laid his hand gently on hers Dont cry dear dont make It hard er for me to bear Shirley must see no trace of tears I was thinking of the Injustice of It all replied Mrs Rossmore wiping her eyes Fancy Shirley in this place living frora hand to mouth went ou the Judge Thats the least answered his wife Shes a fine handsome girl well edu cated and all the rest of It She ought to make a good marriage No matter what state of mind Mrs Rossmore might be tin she never lost sight of the practical side of things Hardly with her fathers disgrace hinging over her hens
