The seiisation created by this al1mple
statement was staggering. The ilushed
acje was unmistakably that of a young
girl. i tnter, modest thing that shrank
before the eyes of a grimi audience.
Womanly instinct impelled Yetive to
shield the timld masquerader. Her

not of enough consequence iII the eyes
of this tender ruler to check the li
pulse of gentleness that swept over

"Before God, you will have those

Yetive felt the slight body of the girl
quiver and then grow tense.
The eyes of Baldos now were fixed
on the white. drawn face of Beverly

top of tho steps. She begai to sway
dizzily, and he saw that she was about

"Yes. You alone are dearer to me

you to meet it alone. Was I not right?

his broad shoulders between her and
the gaping crowd below. She saw
with grateful heart that Yetive and

A Little Card Trick.
A Russian priest was so devoted to
the amusement of card playing that
he played up to the last moment be
Core commencing the church services.
On one occasion, having a particularly
good hand dealt him, he thrust the
cards into his pocket, intending to re
turn and finIsh the game after the
service. Unluckily the cards fell out
on the church floor, to the extreme
scandal of the congregation. The wit
ty priest. however, was fully equal to
the occasion. At the conclusion of the
service he bekoned up one of the
choristers and asked himi the names or
several of the cards, which the boy
knew correctly. He then suddenly
asked the lad the name of the next
saint's day, which the child could not
"See!" cried the priest. turning to,
the congregation. "You teach your
children the names of every card in
ie pack and leave them ignorant of
their religion. Let this be the last
