A BAFFLED BEAUT If .'
Mrs. Nothcrby Bat down In despair
after slio hud shown lior friend out of
the parlor, ntid hIio folt that a ood cry
would inako lior foci much bettor. Ada
liiul just Informed her In the most d Is
Interested way that her brother Hurt, for
whom she hail formed bo many nmbl
tlous schemes for mairlnsc, wns oven
now in lovo with n sliop-pjirl.
Ada infoimod her further Hint tho
store whoro this parson worhod wits
opposite hor brother's club, nttd that
lurt wns always scon wnitfiip In tho
neighborhood until tho shop girl finished
hor work, whon sho Jolncit him outside.
Tho nowa was n torrlblu shock to Knlo
Nothcrby, who thought that no woman
in tho world was qulto good onouch for
hor brother. When he camo libmo that
night, and thoy mit down together at din
ncr, she lost no timo in berating him for
his conduct in no measured torrrn. IIu
waited calmly until sho had finished her
accusation aud replied with, soino dig
nity: "I will not deny, as-you Boom to think
I will, that' tho story with which some
meddling busybody has filled your cars
is true. It Is" every word of It. Two
months ago, by tho merest accident, I
saw and fell In lovo with tho lovollcsl
girl I over set my two oyes upon. That
sho was honorably workfug for hor main
talnanco only nmilo her tho nobler in
my estimation. 1 procured nn Introduc
tion, not without difficulty. As you havo
hoard, I did go to tho store often I
may say frequently; and boveral times
I insisted, whon tho Weather was
stormy, upon scoing her homo.
Kale, it nover entered my
mind that you had nny of that low
bred pridothat would deem itdorogatory
to a person to bo obliged to earn her liv
ing. You complain that I havo deceived
vou. It was not deceit, but reticence
lor until I learned my fato I did not caro
to spoak to you about It. And so prob
ably you Would never havd heard any
thing about it had it not been for your
informant, for my fato has been learned
to my cost."
Tlio conclusion of his soutonco brought
Kato to hor feet.
"To your cost? Burt, what do you
"Simply," ho replied, "that your
brother has had Ills solf-esteem pretty
effectually crushed out of existence
Tho girl I lovo' cares not the least for
mo. savo," bitterly, "as n friend."
With tho last words Hurt's head sank
Into his hands.
Kato looked nthtm aghast. Novor bo
foro had sho seen a shadow upon her
idolized brothor's frank, rricrry faco, and
now It was no racrd cloud, but a tempest
of suffering that convulsed his features.
Sho went to him and put her arm about
his neck, anger and pride completely
"My poor brother, is It ns bod as this?
Forgive, oh forglvo mo if I havo wounded
you. I nover will again."
And so they arc reconciled, and for a
timo everything goes on ns before. Then
something happens that has tho finger of
fate impressed on it. Burt, who has al
ways justly prided himself upon his
horsemanship, whllo riding In tho park,
Tho Ncthorby household is a sad 0116
that night, for in his darkoncd room
Burt lies, now dolhious and now lapsing
into unconsciousness'. In his fall his
head had como in contact with a sharp
btono, and a gravo injury had boon tho
Ono morning a small, richly-dressed
Indy enters Mr. llonscl's musio store; al
though hor figure is far lrom stately,
there Is In her beating that unmitttnkablo
something that tells of social Importanco
"May I speak with Miss Leonard for a
few minutes In private?" sho asks, cour
teously. Her wish is granted, and a llttlo later
Kato finds herself nlono in the proprietor's
private ofilco with tho young lady sho
had come to sco.
As hor oycs rest upon tho pure, noblo
faco, with its soulful oycs and sonsltivo
mouth, Kate's wonder at what sho had
hitherto termed in hor' mind "Burt's in-'
fatuation" dies. Taking Miss Leonard's
hand, sho abruptly pluugos at onco Into
tho objoct of her visit.
"I am Mrs. Nothcrby, Burt's sister,"
sho says. "Ho has told me of his lovo
for you and of your refusal. I havo como
.to satisfy myself as to why that refusal
was given if it could possibly bo that
whero my brother loved ho was not cared
for In return or if thoro were not Bomo
other underlying reason. Ho Is very 111
perhaps1 dying, Miss Leonard and upon
your reply his fato may rest."
"Mr. Ncthorby dying! Oh, do not say
"Havo you, then, not heard of tho ac
cidentof his being thrown from his
"No, Oh! unsay your words! ho may
ho very 111, but nol not liopolesslyl"
"Timo alouo can tell that, but your
agitation convinces mo of something that
I havo folt must be so. It was not bo
cause you did not lovo my brother that
you rofused him,"
A wavo of crimson sweeps over tho
lovely faco, and as Bho raises her oycs
Kate sees that thoy are full of tears.
"You aro right, sho answers, softly.
"It was not lack of lovo, but my stub
born pride. I had hoard of his wealth
and high social position. I was poor,
working for my dally bread. It might
have been said that I married for mer
cenary reasons; so I hid my heart and
said 'No.' '
'But you will unsay It you will como
with mo and savo him I Oh, listen to
mo, for what I ask is as much for mv
own saKo as for Burt's, for, like him, 1
havo fallen in lovo with you at first sight.
Slstor, will you not come?"
What gontlo woman-heart could resist
Burt lives; whether It Is tho sight of
Faith Leonard's lovely faco that curod
him or not, it is certain that from-tho
moment ho felt tho clasp of hor soft,
warm fingers, and heard nor sweet volco
recr.ll tho decided words of their parting
he grow not better, but well.
Tho doctors may prcscribo for tho
body; but thcro is only ono physician,
whtiso name Is Lovo. that can heal that
most deadly of all alls hoartslckness.
"You did mo a good sorvlco after all,
Ada," Mrs. Nothcrby said, mischlov
Iouilyi "for If you hadn't told mo what
you did, llurt would have kept his dis
appointment to himself, and I should
never have known my sweet slstcr-thnt-la-to-be."

A lUlACXtOAL JOKK TttltNS OUT TO

It In ii Jtost Unexpected Vlensnro Not
,(lflcli Given to Olio tu (In Homo unit
I'lml Ono'n Hotter Jlillf In Goml Spirits
When Etpcctril to Ho Otherwise.
A writer in tho Now York Herald
thinks that it's one of tho plcnsantcst of
surprises to go homo mid find your w.lfo
in good spirits when you expected her
to bo otherwise. That was my experi
ence tho other night ho says.
Sho ccrlnlhly had good causo to bo
cross. Wo had been cursed with nn In
competent and Insolent cook. Wo stood
It I tho Incompetence and sho tho In
solence aa long as possible, or rather
until another cook had been engaged,
and the day before, inking advantage ot
a llagrant pleco of "back talk," tho cook
hnd been discharged on tho spot.
That was bad ouough, to bo suro, nnd
qulto sufficient to put any housekeeper
in n bad temper; but to mnko It worso
tho now cook that had been engaged
didn't show up. When I loft tho house,
or rather tho fiat, that morning Mollid
was in nn irroconcillablo stalo of despair.
Life had lost Its charm,
So whon on my return In tho ovonlng
1 not only loona ncr goou-naturca out
beamingly jovous, I promptly caught the
infcction'nnif felt as though I had ' 'struck
a winner" myself.
"What Is It, Molllo?" I asked. "Has
tho new cook come?''
"No, she hasn't; tho mean old .thing!"
"Oh, 1'vo got tho best joko to toll you.
You'll say It's tho funniest thing you
"Go ahead nnd toll it. I can stand
prcttv funny jokes."
"Well, como In to dinnor first; it's all
roiuly. You'll laugh when I tell you.
You sco I'vo put a boltlo of that new
wlno on tho tabid to-night. You can't
guess whero I got it."
On tlio tablo was a long, slim boltlo of
snutcrno, ono of a caso ot very lino wlno
that a friend had sent mo a short time
beforo, and that I prized highly.
"No, I don't know, unless you got it
out of tho box."
"I didn't. I got it out of Susan's
bag." (Susan was tho nauio of tlio
wicked cook who had gono.)
"You sco, this morning I took her bag
out in tho hall to bo all ready for tho ex
pressman whon ho camo. When I put
it down something In it made a suspi
cious sound. I just felt to sco what it
was, and insldo was a bottle shaped ox
actly llko thoso wino bottles. I counted
them ana lounu tucro was ono missing.
Well, I just wasn't going to lot her carry
that wino off right under my faco and
oyes, and so I "
"Took it out. But how did you un
lock tho bag?"
"I didn't unlock it. At ono end tho
seam had been tipped and sewed up
again overhand. I snipped it open with
tho scissors and pulled this bottle of wino
out. And thou what do you think I
"Put it on tho table."
"Yes, but I did something olso. too. I
took an empty bottle, filled it with water,
corked it up and put tho tin-foil cap over
it that I had carefully cut off another
bottle. Then I wrapped it up In tho
paper, shoved it in the bag and sewed
up tho scam just ns It was before. Now,
Isn't that a pretty good 1oko? What do
you suppose Bho will think whon Bho
L illPn.l.Aiia .1.1.. . l.na linnn mimhiI l.A.i
Vftiifln nlin atftlil It."
"I'd just llko io sco her faco when sho
tastes Iti Won't it bo fun? Sho won't
know tho dliroronro till thon, I fixed It
so carefully. Sho'll think it's bcon be
witched, Bure. Woll) I don't caro; it
serves her right, the saucy thing."
It did seem llko a pretty good way of
getting squiiro with Susan. I folt quite
proud of Mollio's achievement, for I set
great store, by that sautorcne, and it was
with a good deal of satisfaction that I
poured out iv glass for each.
I sipped it.
And I camo very near swearing a big,
fat.'hcalthy oath. Something was wrong,
cither with my palate or tho wlno. I
said nothing, but sipped again, and then
sat my glass down for good. Outside I
was serenity and smiles; insldo I was a
seething volume of wrath.
But 1 bided my timo until Mollio took
a drink of her wino. She looked at it
with a queer expression, hold It up and
sniffed it, smacked her lips and then
took another long, slow drink.
Whon sho put hor glass down her faco
had grown suddenly red and thoro was
anything but a joyous look In her oycs.
r'Is thoro anything tho matter with the
wino. dear?" I askou.
"You know thoro is. What do you trv
to bo so smart and sarcastic for? You
havo known all about It for five minutes
and lust sat thcro without saying a word
and let mo find out for myself."
"Find out what?"
"That I put back tho wrong bottle."
And now for three days tho joyuusness
that the awfully funny joko at ifrst occa
sioned has not oven showed its head in
our housohold. Somehow Molllo seoms
to think I was nn accossory nnd partly
responsible for turning the "Joko" Into a

A peculiar and not altogether pleasing
slsht about tho Iron and steel works In

lo the Now York Timet, Is tho groups of
men, women and children that aro con

ntid are known as cobblo
pickers. Tho men aro always old, nnd
frequently weak and tottering, Tho
mark of poverty Is on all tho women,
and tho children, who aro always in
tho majority, are abject-looking
creatures, and rango lrom tho

iron and steel that remain among tho
cinders from tho furnaces and aro
dumped with them on the cinder piles.
On tlio Gathering of theso bits of metal

pend for thrlr living. With hoes and rakes
they dig In tho clmlcis as thoy am
dumped and strugglo and push aud

as it Is uncovered.
Each picker has a basket In which is
placed tho result of tho pickings. Over
200 poisons dally tlclvo In the gilmy
dump for cobbles. Whllo thoy will uso

Is not ono amomt the curious and by no
means scrupulous plckcis who would
touch one of the cobbles In It. Each
picker has his or her pile of cobbles, and
tho iron company's teams como around
at intervals. Tho dilvcr weighs eacli
pile, gives tho ownor a voucher for it,
and takes tho accumulated metals to tho
scrap henps to be melted again.
Tho oarnlmrs of the cobblo-nlckors

Some Advice Wlilcb tlio T.ndlos Might
Follow to AilvnntiiRe.
Fran the 3fall and Sxprtn.
Tho best means of preserving the com
plexion is first to avoid caro and worry,
anxiety and frctfulness, which aro detri
mental to tho complexion. Try to slcop
woll, nnd bo careful of dtot, aud meet
tho world as it comes. Cold atmosphere
and plenty of cold wator aro good tonics,
excepting in cases of exceedingly deli
cate people. Protect your faces from
strong winds by wearing a thick veil
until the skin becomes somewhat hard
ened to tho cold.
Some good writers and prominent phy
sicians oppose tho uso of cold water and
adviso hot water. "I must say I am
much opposed to heat In any form for
tho faco, says a lady who has mado
dermatology a study J and who has a.most
beautiful complexion of hor own to show
for her caro and study. "For cxamplo,
you wash your faco on rising in tlio
morning with hot or cold wnter. which is
more agrccablo in its results If you are
compelled to go out-doors? After wash
ing one's faco in hot water it feels drawn
and soft if oxposed to tho air. Now,
what you want is not a soft but a hard
skin, firm but smooth aud velvety-looking.
You can never havo a pretty com
