"Oh, I shall be so glad of the change,
Bertie) It is so desolate here,' and I
dread the long winter." ' But what can
I do in Boston? I cannot be idle.
"Will not housekeeping for me be
occupation enough?" he answered,
smiling, "or you might give music
lessons and study shorthand.

"But what will Aunt Susan think of
the change? And it will be such a
change for her!"
She will get used to it," he an
Then, as Alice began to realize what
It meant to bid goodby to the scenes of
ber childhood,. the old home, the great
trees In front, the broad meadows, the
brook that rippled through them, the
little church where every one greeted
her with a . smile, and the grand old
hills that surrounded Sandgate's
peaceful valley,, ber heart began to
sink. Then she thought of the pleas

gone nutting In autumn, the old mill

I shall be homesick for a spell, but
then I shall have you." Then she
rose and like a big baby crept into
her brother's lap, and, tucking, ber
gunny bead under bis chin, whispered:
On, lr you were never going 10 ue
married, Bertie, I would leave It all
and try to be contented. I could come
up here every summer, could I not?'
Then she added disconsolately: "But
you will get married soon. Your beau
tiful Island girl will not keep you
waiting so long."
"No sweetheart and no v.lfe shall
ever lessen my love for you, Alice,
who have been my playmate, my com
panion and my confidant till my life."
, When they had discussed the pro
posed step In all its bearings for a half
hour Albert said;' ."Come, now, sin,
sing a little for me. 'I am hungry to
hear you once more." '
She complied willingly, and, as the
piquant voice of Alice Page trilled
the list from "Lily, Dale ' to "Suwanee
Biver" and back to "Bonny Elolse"
and "Patter of the Rain," Albert lazi
ly puffed hlH pipe and lived over Ids
boyhood days. ;
When the concert 'was ended he ex
claimed: "I will look around before
Christmas - and sea what kind of

school closes you must come down
and visit me and see how you like
"Oh, that will bo Just delightful

"But If they find it out Blanch and
Frank , would feel bitterly hurt, he
replied. "Hemember, they did you the
honor of coming up here to visit you
and Blanch has ' suld to me several
times that she hoped you would visit
her this winter."
"I should love to," replied Alice, hes
itating, "but well, I will tell you what
we can do-rwe will wuit until the day
befoce I (ini to return, aud then; we can
call there one evening.' They need not
know how long I have been In Bos

Albert said: "I will do as you wish.

Nasons should meet us at a theater I
tmnglne It will work all right only it
Is a little rough on Frank."
TIE proposed change did not
seem to disturb Aunt Susan
much, although Alice noticed
that she was more quiet than
ever and avoided that subject.
"I'm ready an' wlllln to go if you
think best" she said, "an' I'll do my
best as long as I can. I hain't got
long to stay, an' It I see you two hap
py I'm content."
Two weeks before Christmas came a
cordial letter from Blanch reminding
Alice of her promise to visit her dur
ing the holidays and Insisting that she
do so now. With it was Inclosed an
equally cordial but brief note of invita
tion from Mrs. Nason. Alice replied to
both In due form and with profuse
thanks, also stating that she had prom
ised her brother she would visit him
during her vacation, and hoped to have
one or two evenings' with them at that
Alice Inclosed both notes to her broth
er and told him he had best Inform
the Nasons of her Intended visit in a
matter of fact way. "But" she added,
do not let on that you know they
have Invited me to visit them. We
will do Just as we talked go there and
spend one or two evenings, or perhaps
may meet them at a theater, which
would be much better."
By . return mall came his assurance
of obedience and a sizable check. "Use
It all, my dear sis," he wrote, "and for
your own needs, too. I do "not want
you to feel ashamed of your gowns
when you come to Boston."
'Bless his dear heart" said Alice
when she read the letter, 'what a prize
that island girl will get in him I"
When Christmas came and abe
kissed Aunt Susan goodby,, she was
near giving up the trip altogether. It
may have been the sad face of her
aunt that brought the Irresolution, or
a feeling that meeting Frank would
reawaken the little heartache she had
for five months been trying to conquer.
When she reached Boston she was met
by her brother.
"I have not told Frank,", Albert ex-
claimed, "and shall not let them know
you are here until we call. . I want you
to myself for a few days, because after
Frank knows' you are here I am sure
to be one too many most of the time."
Not on his account you'll not be,"
replied Alice with a snap.
What a gallant escort that brother
was, and What a change from the dull
monotony of her home life thoBe days
were to Alice.
They visited art galleries mornings,
and devoted the afternoons and even
ings to theaters; then usually a tete-a-tete
supper at a cozy place where the
best was to be had, and a little chat In
his or ber room before retiring. It
was during one of these brief visit
that she noticed some of the pictures
that hung in bis room
Who painted that shipwreck
scene?" she asked, looking at one. "It
Is a gem, and those poor sailors cling
ing to the Ice covered rigging are
enough to make one shiver. And those
awful waves, too, are simply terrify
ing. And what a pretty scene is this
wild tangle of rocks with a girl leaning
on one and looking out on the ocean
where the sun is setting or rising,"
she continued as she viewed the next
one. Then as she examined It a little
closer she added, "Who Is E. T.?"
Albert made no answer, and she passed
to a third one showing a little rippled
cove with the ocean beyond and a girl
seated In the shade of a small spruce
tree. . ,
"Why, this is by E. T. too," she ex
claimed. And turning to her brother
she repeated, "Who Is E. T.?"
"Well," ha answered, "I will take
(011 down to the Island some time and
Aitroduce you to her. She will be glad
to meet my sister, you may be cer
Then the brief history, of this girl
as hor brother had told it came to her
"So that was the wreck she floated
ashore from, was It Bert? And cun
she paint like that? Why, I am as
Jonlfihed! And who is the girl leaning
on the rock? ; What an exquisitely
molded figure and what a pretty pose
Who Is she?'
"That is your possible sister-in-law,"
answered Albert, with a touch of
pride, '.'and the pictures were done by
her from sketches I first made myself.
They are true to life so far as all de
tails go, only I failed to catch ber ex
presslve face In the one that shows a
front view of her,
"So that was the way you wooed
your island goddess, was it?" observed
Alice, with a roguish look. . "Made her
pose for a sketch while you said sweet
things to her. Have you a picture
"No, I am sorry to say I have not.
Remember, she has been hidden on an
island all her life, and I doubt if she
ever had a picture taken."
"And when will you take me to see
her? I am so anxious to meet this
fulry of the shore who has stolen my
brother's heart Can't we go down
there before I return home?"
"We can," he added, "but I think
we'd better wait until spring.'
The next day he informed her he had
secured a box at a theater for that
evening and bad Invited the Nasons to
Join them. "I thought It would rellev

Cuban Market Letter.
Habana, Cuba, Sept. 26, 1905,
Thirty days ago, at the date of our
last review, the Cuban sugar markets

trifuals were' quoted at 5 reales,
buyers were rather indifferent, but
there was no pressure to sell on the
part of holders. '
Stocks in the six ports ammounted
to about 226,000 tons, of which pro
bably 50,000 tons bad been sold, while
the greater part of the remainder
was held by planters who had been
carrying their sugars for several
months. These 6ugars would leave a
heavy loss if spld at 5 reales, and
holders were looking for a demand
to start up which would enable them
to liquidate their holdings without
such heavy loss. These conditions

market, and sales were few and far
