Tick, tick, tick,
It was my Orst night In n Siberian
prison. But twenty-two years old, on
tho very threshold of life, and con
detuned to spend twenty yenrs from
youth to the beginning of old ngc In
Tick, tlckety, tick.
Somo 0110 is rapping on tho heating
plpo which runs up to tho floor above.
All political prisoners know the code,
nnd I was not long in spelling out tho
remainder of a sentence. Tho begin
ulng I had lost,
I must condense two years Into a
few sentences. Tho rapper, occupying
a cell directly above mine, was a girl,
Anna Vronsky, tho daughter of a
university professor. Sho had been
sent to Siberia for teaching tho peas
ants. Sho had been placed' in solitary
confinement and at tho time sho mndo
my acquaintance was on tho verge of
Insanity. To save her I exerted my
self to tho utmost, encouraging her,
telling her of escapes of which I had
heard and r escapes I invented. For
this sympathy sho -was grateful, and
I was not long In turning her grati
tude to love.
There is nothing llko love to stlniu
lata both hopo and endeavor. I spent
air my time in planning an escape both
'for her and me. Escape was not Im
possible, for the prison system was bad
nnd the prison officials corrupt It was
rcapturc that I feared. To gain time
after leaving tho prison and by tlino
distance 1 hit upon tho plan of having
dummies in .our cells.
This plan I communicated to Anna,
suggesting that when tho guard brought
her meals sho should always sit In tho
samo position and answer no Questions.
This was to get tho guard used to what
a dummy would bo. Anna began tho
process at onco, as I did. By our rap
ping code other prisonors told us that
thero was an hour, supper time, When
ono might walk out of the prison un
seen; but, as Anna and I could not
rely upon escaping at tho same time,
wo wero to meet, If possible, at a dis
tant town whero exiles having served
their terms In prison -were permitted
I inado a dummy out of my mattress
and my bedclothlng. Every time my
guard appeared I sat with my head
bent on my bed as though in melan
choly. I arranged by the code with a
prisoner at tho end of tho corridor
that at thrco coughs from me he was
to shriek. Ono evening I gnvo tho sig
nal. Tho guard, without relocklng my
cell, hurried to the prisoner. I set up
my dummy and walked out. I suc
ceeded in getting out of the prison
without being seen except by ono man,
who supposed I was a privileged con
vict. It was very dark, and I hid in a
corner of the wall. I had noticed from
my cell window a place whero ono
could get on a low building with a
chanco of escape. Finding a piece of
scantling in tho prison yard, I used It
first to climb on tho building and next
to reach tho top of the wall, from which
I Jumped down and escaped.
My dummy must havo worked suc
cessfully, for I was not pursued, and
if pursued I should surely have been
captured. I went to tho rendotvous
and waited thero as long as I dared for
Anna Vronsky, but she did not appear.
Then I reluctantly inado my way to
Russia, stopping Just beyond tho bor
der, where I remained under an as
sumed name. Indeed, my Identity with
my former self was unrecognizable I
mado a living trading In furs and kept
a lookout for escaped prisoners, from
some of whom I hoped to hear some
thing of Anna Vronsky.
It stems straniro that a man should
lovo and continue to lovo a girl ho has
never sotm, but tnero was inoro do
tween mo and my fellow sufferer than
between most lovers who had been
brought up together. And this Is the
reason why I remained in what to mo
waB tho most dangerous position in
Bussla, near tho Siberian border.
Six years passed. Ono day I went up
to Kara bay to make purchases and on
my way back stopped for supper and
tho night at a little farmhouse, tho only
occupants being an old woman and her
nleco. Fron tho moment I saw tho
niece I felt that sho alono could tako
tho place of my imprisoned lovo. I
chutted with tho two womon till tho
aunt wont to bed. The girl was' about
to follow her whon I, fancying from a
sadness stamped on her face .that sho
might havo suffered as a political pris
oner, tappod with a load pencil on tho
table from forco of habit, spelling
words that I bad often spelled in
"Anna, I lovo you."
Tho change in the girl before mo was
astonishing. She turned first white,
then a rosy red, catching at tho samo
tlmo at the table.
"Yes, and you 7"
I started forward and clasped her In
my arms. Ob, tho happiness of that
embrace! Except for our hearts beat
ing against each other there was si
lence. Then I asked hor If she would
I lovo the roal bb she bad loved tho ideal.
! Sho said she would. -
' Tho woman with whom she lived
I was no relation to her, and she had
I been with hor only a few months. I
took Anna away with mo, and we havo
lived In a comparative wilderness for
1 each other alone ever slnco. For a tlmo
not even our parents knew wboro we
wore, but at last wo found means to
' Inform them without risk to ourselves
or to thorn. And now since tho work
wo suffered for may bo accomplished
wo aro looking rorwara 10 uio uay
when we may resume our Identities!
linptdly Growing Industry.
"According to all indications the
tangible results of the development
of the pineapple industry will be
very much in evidence during the
next few months", says the
"A. W. Eamcs, one of the
Wahiawa pioneers, returned from
a trip to the coast recently and
repottsa very strong probability
quite equal to. n certainty 1hat a
can factory will soon be erected In
Honolulu in connection with the
pineapple cannery works of tuisand
"Both the United Can Company
and the American Can Company
have this place very much in mind
these days. The output of the
island will be increased to such an
extent in the next few years that
such a factory will be a necessity
and money aud industry never nlknv
an aching void where necessity
exist. This will doubless mean" an
original investment of 510,000 and
employment for a good number of
"TheJ raw material for the cans
will be shipped to this city and
made up at this factory. It will
be a saving for the pineapple can
ners and a good thing for the town
in every way."
Somber American Dress.
Dressy people will please take
notice that they may have to be
more dressy than ever in the future.
The news comes from London that
English costumes, which are already
so much more gay than American,
are to be far more brilliant than
ever because King Edward has
decreed it. The king went to
Saudriughara lately arrayed in a
scarlet Tam 0' Shanter, a drab
Norfolk jacket aud knickers and
brightly colored hose, and his
people are all preparing to brighten
up their costumes.
Our people do not have to sneeze
because King Edward takes snuff,
and American attire has always
been sober compared with that o
the English, but we now travel
abroad so much that we are feeling
foreign influence in everything, just
as Europe is also feeling American
influence, and we may rest assured
that if British clothing gets any
louder than it is at present it will
be heard and re-echoed 'to some
extent across the salt water. We
cannot see any cause for regret if
this should be the case. Ameri
can dress is much soberer than
dress in any other part of the
world, and, what is more to the
point, much soberer than nature
herself. Chicago Chronicle.
