The Itowlnnd boys were tlic terror
nf nil the otlior residents lu tho big
city npartment building to which they
hail lately born transplanted from the
i-ouiitry. Hut for the fnct thnt Mr.
Itowtnud wns linrt owner of the Iloyl
Htnn flats his ons would not Imvo been
tolrnitcd In tlicm for nn Instant.
Not thnt either Teddy or Oliver In
tended to be troublesome to those
iiround them. They were merely two
nctlvp, healthy boys, nccuMomed to
flclds, woods nnd the open country
rather than prim corridors, spotless
marble staircases and never a place to
The sultry August day upon which
the crowning Incident of their city ex
periences happened wns so rainy thnt
tho dally trip to the park was Riven up.
So the boys amused themselves ns best
they could -teaed the elevator man
.. HUM) MADI.V 1HIWN.
until ho diove them from the elevator
nd told them to keep out for a week,
played "hunter" with eery pet cat
la thn building nnd Mulshed by throw
ing their cups down tho open space In
the center of tho curved stairway, slid
ing madly down tho polished iron rail
la order to ni-utur lliem nnd tramping
noisily uii a km I n. They wore making
great fun this way when Mrs. How
Und, passing along the corridor on her
wy to call on Mrs. llrownlng, who
lived on the second tloor, niipeared.
"Oil, boys, boys," sho cried, laughing
ly stopping her ears as they raced to
wrd her, "you must, you positively
roust, bo a little quieter! Co Into our
own rooms, dearies, aud dou't come
out ngniu until I return."
Ton minutes later sho was nearly
frightened out of her wits. Looking out
of Mrs. Iliownlng's window Into the
light hlint't, which furnished light nnd
air to nil the apartments In tho build
ing, shu saw her miii Teddy suspended
In n sort or Improvised Ming, evidently
patterned after the harness used by
tho Jimltor when eleaulug windows,
nnd helped out by suggestions obtain
ed from u tiaellug acrobat whom tho
boys bad recently heeii. A largo bow
knot had been tied In the ropo used for
hanging out clothes on the roof on
washing diijs. and In the lower loop
of this bow Teddy rested as If lu n
Kcntless swing. Tho smaller loop, pass
ing n io mid his waist, assisted him In
retaining an unsteady sitting postuie.
At n small pantry window blub above,
alternately raising and loweilug his
brother by means of nn Improvised
windlass strangely loscmhllng a muti
lated clothes wilnger, "stood Oliver,
grinning with delight.
Teddy, to his Indignant disgust, was
unceremoniously hauled through Mrs.
Browning's window, und his mother,
accompanied by her hostess nnd Mrs.
Stacy, who lived upon tho seventh
floor of the building on thu opposite
sldo nnd who hnd called to return n
book loaned her by Mrs. llrowulug,
hurried up stairs to look at tho In
"I'lense, mamma, let It stay," plead
ed Teddy beseechingly, "just for a
llttlo while anyway! It might conio lu
handy, you know,"
"Oh. yes, It might," admitted Mrs.
Itowlnnd, laughing, "but 1 dou't thltik
It will. Ko remove It nt once." At
that moment Mis. Stacy, who bad been
amusedly Inspecting tho ropo aud
wringer, gave a Martlcd cry.
Six floors below them, swaying about
on tho window sill of tho Stacy apart
ment, sat tho year-old baby that Mrs.
Stacy had loft asleep In Its cradle. It
was peering down Into tho court. A
clinlr drawn up closo to tho window
showed tho means by which tho llt
tlo one had i cached Its dangerous
perch. The floor of the light bhaft
was paved with stone, tho window
was unguarded by barn or railing, and
the poor mother groaned aloud as she
realized that her child might at nny
'moment fall nnd bo dashed to death.
"What shall 1 do? Whnt shall I do?"
ho moaned wildly, wringing her
hands. "I let the uuiso go upon nn er
rand half nn hour ago. Tho girl has
her afternoon off today, and I've lock
ed myself out of the flat. I forgot all
about the.ro being nobody to let me In.
unit my mtemtry is in my pociteiiioo
down on the dresser In my bedroom!"
"And the Janitor has gone out too.
I saw lil in. nnd he said be was going
down town!" put In Oliver excitedly.
"And the engineer hasn't nny keys,
fur I asked him yesterdny, when I did
the sumo thing!" exclaimed Mrs.
Mrs. Stacy stood as If paralyzed.
When she would have called to the ba
by, creeping steadily ncross tho broad
window sill, Mrs. Itowlnnd restrained
her. To startle the child would almost
certainly make It Iofo Its balance nnd
"I'nwlnd me down!" directed Teddy
suddenly, once nioro adjusting the
ropes of the cherished swing nbont his
tody. A moment Inter ho wns twirl
ing mpldly town til tho child. '
Ills fnce wns a llttlo pale and set,
for to seize the child meant to tnke
both hands from tho rope, and Teddy,
while privately entertaining great
hopes of some time swinging up and
down the shaft lu triumph, holding on
to the lope by his teeth, still felt dizzy
at the thought of trusting to the lope
nroiind his waist alone. Hut when on
a level with thu baby he set his Jaw
llrmly, signaled Oliver to bold the rope
as steadily as posbl "d kicked Ig
orottsly against the v .1 beside Which
ho hung, In order to swing his body
across the court.
Twlco he failed to reach tho window
opposite him, and tho baby. Interested
lu the Moor of tho court, did not look
up. The third time he approached her
she n li I tn and crowed with delight,
stretching out her baby hands toward
Mini and trying to rise to her unsteady
little feet. Hut Teddy was swifter
With a desperate lunge he flung him
self against the window sill, let go his
hold of the rope and snatched the child
Just as sho tottered on the slippery
edge of the polished stone. The mid
den and violent movement, combined
with the Jerky action of the rope,
which swung sharply across the com t
again on the rebound, upset ids bal
Mice completely. The eager spectators
at the window high above, their hearts
still thumping wildly from the excite
meiit of the baby's danger, gasped
with apprehension as the boy, llrmly
clutching tho baby, fell heavily back
ward, slipping out of tho loop on which
he rested entirely and dropplngfto a
Hut Teddy vuis game. "Wind me up
quick!" he shouted to Oliver, nnd up
he came, with only the loop a round his
waist to keep both him and his charge
from the stone tloor below. Tho baby,
who fancied the wholo affnlr n new
kind of play, kicked, crowed and
squirmed In his arms. Hut .the loop
hehl llrm. Teddy managed, nfter n few
effoits, to catch hold of the other loop
with his feet, nnd presently ho was
being drawn In through tho Rowland
window, red lu the face and breathless
from the partially Inverted position In
which tho upward trip had been made.
Mrs. Stacy snatched her baby nnd fell
to wildly kissing It, mid tho other la
dles hugged Teddy, In spite of his ob
jections. "I'm nil right, mainuia. Indeed I am,"
he cried, wriggling away from his
mother's affectionate embrace, "aud
you needn't cry, I'm sure! My Jacket
split when tho rope slipped, but you
can mend It, I know, nnd wo won't nsk

you feel bad nbont It. Hut I told you

"I'm hungry, too," remarked Oliver
plaintively, "and really, maiuinn, I was
tho 0110 who llrst thought of llxlng up
tho ropes like that, nnd I've done most
of tho work nnyway. Can't I have
some Jelly cake too?"

Our company his bright prospects.
It is backed llnanclally by New York,
San Francisco nnd Hawaiian capital
ists, and is sulllclently strong to make
a success of Its undertaking. The com
pany will begin with four stcaineis,
each of 0,000 gross tonnngc, or nn ap
proximate not tonnage of .1,500. The
California!! will be the first to call here,
coming from San Francisco. She will
bo followed two months later by tho
American, from New York, nnd by the
Hawaiian nnd Oiegonlnn In tho older
named, at intervals of about two
eV will arrange the schedule so that
tho steamers will leave Honolulu dur
ing tho sugar season, and be roiulng
out this way from Now York In tho olt
season, Tho only ports nt which the
steamers will touch nro New York,
Sail Francisco, Honolulu, and prob
ably San Diego. When I return to the
Coast It Is my intention to visit the
latter port and endeavor to arrnngo for
calling there, but ns yet It Is undecided
whether our Southern California port
will be San IDego or Santa Monica. Hut
we shall call there only on the outward
trip from New York.
Tho steamers will touch regularly at
Coronel, Chill, for coaling purposes.
All of the four vessels arc to bo ex-1
ccptlonnlly well supplied with coal, I
each having bunkers of ,S00 tons
capacity enough to carry a steamer
thousands of miles. There will bo no
passenger accommodations even be
tween San Francisco nnd Honolulu,
and no mall will bo carried. In fnct,
tho speed of the steamers about lO'j
knots will bo hardly siifllclcnt to war
rant us In trying for 11 mail subsidy.
Iho vessels nro altogether freighters,
of largo capacity, and will no doubt
have all they can do.

for her severe attnek.
Tho letters have como from various
