"I am sorry If I did," replied Frank
"I did not moan to. Mother fell la km

When the hills of Sandgnto w.i.
visible ho Biild, "I have an hour betV:
the returning train und juat tiiui
enough to see you safely home."
Alice looked at him with surprise.
"And tout Is your idea of uiy hospi
tality," she exclaimed, "to let you go
away like, that? The morning triiln Is
the earliest oue you can escape! 011,
tnd If I am not good enough company
for you this evening, you cm go and
call on Abby Miles."
What a surprised and glad old lady
Aunt Susan was when the two stepped
off the train.
"Don't mind me, Aunt Susan," Frank
said with easy familiarity. "I am not
a visitor, I am a big brother escorting
a lone sister home."
How kindly that wrinkled face
beamed on him behind her spectacles
while he Insisted that she stand by
and let him unhurness and see to the
horse as she directed. And how will
ingly ho curried baskets of wood in
and started the parlor fire.
"I did not know you could moke
yourself bo useful," Alice observed.
When supper was over ho asked her
all manner of questions about her
school, when she meant to open it
again, how the old miller was, what
bad become of the boat, how the mill
pond looked In winter, and bud she
been there since the day she gathered
lilies. "Always back to that spot," she
When he asked her to sing "The
Last Hose of Summer" she exclaimed
with a pretty pout: "I do not want
to sing that It reminds me how Beared
I was when I sang it lust."
"But you brought tears Into most of
our eyes that nrght."
"Do you want to weep again?" she
asked archly, looking up at him and
smiling. "If you say you do, I will
"No," he answered, and then hesitat
ing a moment added: "I do not feel
that way tonight I may when truln
tlnie comes tomorrow."
Her cyos fell, and rising quickly,
like n seared bird anxious to escape,
Hut a strong hand clasped one of
hers, find then she heard him say: "Am

ti-tJ bulky envelope bearing the
Stockholm postmark and containing
numerous legal papers and n lengthy
letter. lie did not notice Frnnk when
ho came In or even hear his greeting,
nnd well might Albert be keenly ab
sorbed in those documents, for they
made him the emissary privileged to

Terry putter over lobster traps in rain

Here was more than they could spend
In all the yenrs that were left them,
and what a charming privilege it
would be to him to place in hor loving
hand the means to make glad and bless
those kindly people who had cured for
her as tholr own, nnd what a sweet
door of hope it opened for himl
Then, for the first time, he noticed
Frnnk -watching him with smiling in
terest. "Well," remarked that cheerful young
man, "I'm glnd to see you emerge from
your trance nnd return to eorth again.
I've snld good morning twice and
watched you for half an hour and you
didn't even know I was in the room."
When Frank had perused tho most
Interesting of the documents he gave
a low whistle and sold:
"Now, methinks, somebody will be
taking a wedding trip to the Land of
the Midnight Sun In the near future.
I congratulate you, my dear boy, and
you can have the Gypsy when you are
ready." Then he added shyly, "May
be it can be arranged so there can be
four in the party."
The next morning Albert, bearing
the legal evidence of Telly's heritage
and with buoyant heart, left for South
port. Late in the afternoon the little
boat bearing him as sole passenger
halted at the bead of the island, and
he saw the smiling face and muffled
form of Uncle Terry standing on the
"Bless yer heart, Mr. Page," exclaim
ed Uncle Terry, grasping both of Al
bert's hands in his, "but the sight o' ye
Is good fer sore eyes."
"And how are Aunt Llssy and Tol
ly?" responded Albert, smiling into the
glowing face of the old man.
"Oh, they're purty mlddlin', an
they'll be powerful glad to see ye, too.
It's been a long time since ye left us."
How vividly came to Albert every
detail of his last parting from Telly,
framed as one was in a background of
scarlet and brown foliage! Ho could
see her as be last saw her, standing
with bowed head and tear wet face,
and feel a tinge of the keen pain that
pulled at bis own heartstrings then,
lie could almost hear the sad rustle of
the autumn winds in the dry leaves
that hud added a pathos to their part
ing. And now only a few miles separated
But the way was long and Uncle
Terry's old horse slow, and the -road
In the hollows a quagmire of hulf
frozen mud. Gone were all the leaves
of the scrub oaks, and beneath the
thickets of spruce still remained a
white pall of snow. A half gule was
blowing over the island, and when they
halted in front of Uncle Terry's home
the booming of the glunt billows filled
the night air, and by the gleam of the
lighthouse rays Albert could see the
spruy tossed high over the point rocks.
"Go right in," said Undo Terry, "an'
don't stop tor knock; ye'll find the
wimmln folks right glud tor see ye,
an' I'll tuke kcer o' the boss."
With Telly it had been a long, dreary
winter. Her only consolation had been
the few letters from the only mun
who hud ever uttered a word of love
to her, and how eagerly they had been
read nguln and again.
At times, when the cold desolutlon of
winter was nt its worst, only muldenly
reserve had kept her from writing him
thut her loneliness and heart hunger
were more than she could hour.
She had no inkling of his coming,
and when Uncle Terry bade him enter
the bouse she was alone in tho sitting
room laying the table, while Aunt
Ussy was in the kitchen cooking sup
per. She heard the click of tho front
door latch and, stepping into the little
hull as the door slowly opened, she
met the man who for five long months
had never been absent from her
A glad cry eseuped her, and then

When Uncle Terry came in, and
after Telly, as usual, hud brought his
house coat and slipper, what a happy
little party was seated ut the tublo.

After supper Undo Terry nnd Albeit
smoked nnd talked, nnd when the

of Telly's life with them enst its shnd
ow athwart his vision, he bowed his
fnce upon his hands and added, "I
knowed it 'ud come an we'd lose ye,
soon or late."
For an lnstnnt Telly looked nt Uncle
Terry, and then she thrust tho envel
ope into bis hands and clasped his arm.
"I won't take it, father!" she ex
claimed. "Not one penny of it! It's
all yours, mnd I'll never leave you so
long as you live!" Then she began to

one hand on her bowed head, "an' no

keep ye, make sure." Then, noting tho
dumfounded look on Albert's face, he
added, "Ye mustn't mind Telly's ways,
Mr. Tage; it's upset her a little an'
made her blsterlky. She don't quite
understand yit what it all means. She
ain't much used ter havin' a for tin

Mr. Page, bein' a lawyer, can 'splnln
mutters to Telly."
When they had left the room Albert
seated himself on the sofa beside Tvlly
and said: "I am a trifle puzzled and a
little disappointed, Telly, at tho wny
you feel about this inheritance. It is
rightfully yours nnd will enable you
to do much for the future comfort of
those who are devoted to you. I had
toped also it would relieve your feel
ing of obligation a little."
"No money cun do thut," sho answer
ed quickly, "and all this won't be
worth to father the euro he has grown
accustomed to from me."
"But won't this money do more for
him than you can, Telly? Is there any
need of bis remaining here to putter
over lobster trups and drive a wugon,
rain or shine? Ho is getting too old
for that, anyway. Why not build a
home for them in Boston, or, better
Btlll, share ours there?"
A flush came over Telly's fuce.
"Wo haven't a home there yet," sho
answered, turning her fuce nwny.
"But we will huve, durllng, nnd as
soon as you consent I shull begin to
muke it rendy. I want you, darling,
and I want a homo. Life to me with
you buried bore is only desolation, und
how much so to you the past five
months can only tell. I know how
you feel toward these good people, und
your care for them shall bo my core."
Telly hid her fuce behind her bands,
and as she yielded a little to his clasp
he whispered: "Do not say 'no' nguln,
Telly! Do not rob yourself and me of
love and home and happiness any
longer! Make what plans for them
you wish. Do as you will with your
heritage. All I plead for Is you." As
he puused, holding her close while he
waited for her answer, only listening
love heurd It whispered.
And outside the billows that years
before tossed her ashore and had
woven their monotone of sudness Into
her life still tolled their requiem, but
she heard them not. She hud entered
the enchanted cnstlu of illusions.

G. R. CARTER,
Political Disturbances In Cuba.
The local elections now taking
place in Cuba are preliminary to the
Presidential election of December.
All the indications are that Presi
dent Palira will be re elected by a
substantial majority. Under his
administration Cuba has enjoyed
four years of peace, security and
prosperity such as have never before
been known in the history of the
island. It is beleived that most
Cubans of intelligence recognize this
and are heartily in favor of that
orderly and conservative self-government
for which President Palma
stands. That there should be a
party ot political opposition, how.
ever, is inevitable and even desirable,
and it is Cuba's misfortune that poli
tical opposition with the extreme
radical element is likely to take the
form of incipient revolution; for iu
Cuba, as iu other Spanish-American
countries, it seems to be instinctive
with a certain element to confuse
insurrection with progress. The
disturbance of last week iu Cieufue
gos illustrates tlii. Enrique Villuen
das, a supporter of Gomez, Palma'i
rival for the Presidency, and a lead
er in the so called Liberal party,
was killed while resisting an attempt
by the police to arrest him, and
after one or more of the police had
been killed, it is reported that his
house was found to be filled with
arms and even with dybamite bombs.
The incident has led some American
papers to question whether the time
is not at hand when the United
States, under the guardianship im
posed upon it by the. Plait Amend
ment, should not interfere to pre
set ve order in Cuba. But there
seems to be no reason to suppose
that the Government of Cuba is not
amply able to enforce order, and it Is
axiomatic that interference should
bo based on something more, than
single incidents of disorder such as
that just described. If the time
comes when fair political opposition
is suppressed by force in Cuba, or
when the Government feels unable
to withstand the attacks of revolu
tionaries, the United Slates will
probably act promptly and affective
ly; but no such condition now exists.
