Hampton acted immediately upon hi*

engaged in throwing brushes full ol

The sketch book was reluctantly pttl
away and Hampton strode with Uptou
to the rear coach.

It was a jolly drive over the smooth
country roan to Vagabondia, the villa
of Mrs. Fitzsiminons. Hampton began
to feel a new-interest in his compan?
ions. It is true they all taiked mere
nothings, but to him the situation was
so novel?no care and calculations, no
paints and brushes; artistic positions
taken by all, and nature painting the

i "I am very sorry Mr. Upton is to
be the fortunate one. Yes. I shall be j
delighted to take Miss Cruttendon, if I
she has no previous engagement."
i The night was perfect. A faint !
breeze scarcely ruffled the water's stir- '?
face. Four canoes stole away from
Vagabondia dock and glided silently
under the overhanging will iws. The
paddies seemed hardly to touch the
water, so lightly were they plied. Fire?
flies darted hither and thither among ;
the reeds, their tiny sparks mirrored
in the glassy water.
As the canoes in single file silently
rounded the outer point the sound of
music floated across the bay. The j
musicians at Vagabondia were playing
a serenade?an old Mexican love song,
with soft, insinuating cadence. The
paddles ceased to move, and the canoes \
drifted aimlessly on into the shadows.
Miss Hey ward closed her eyes and re- I
clined gracefully 0:1 the cushions, her
tapering fingers trailing In the phos
phorescent water. Even Upton's exu- i
berance for the moment succumbed,
and, his paddle athwart the gunwales,
his eyes fixed upon the heavens, he,
too, trailed his hand in the water as |
if to establish a means of communica?
tion for their soulr,.
The music ceased, but Upton and
Miss Heywatd remained in silence.
"Heavenly. Miss Cruttendon!"
Hampton muttered, his eyes upon the
Suddenly one of Sousa's marches
bounded over the water and seemed to
awaken the slumbering woods with its
depths of harmony. Upton's reverie
came to an end.
"I say, there's a jolly good place a
little up, called Satan's Ladder, I be?
lieve. Let's paddle up."
It must have been on some such
night as this that the place was named
Satan's Ladder. As the canoes stole
gently forward the paddle strokes, the
whispered words, were all echoed back
In almost supernatural distinctness.
The boats were beached at the foot
ofjthe cliff. _ _ ^ (
"CeVs s'o' up, finss ITeyward."
"Thank you, but I'd rather not un?
"Oh, I should love to go, Mr. Up?
ton!" .Miss Cruttendon said quickly.
Upton ascended, extending a helping
hand to Miss Cruttendon. The others
followed. Hampton was left alone
with Miss Heyward. |
"I should love to have undertaken
that clamber five years ago."
"Do five years, then, make so much
difference in a girl's life?"
"Why, yes. Mr. Hampton, or in a
man's either. Ilon'l you think so?"
"Yes sometimes, but it has not
made much difference in mine."
"Are you sure. Mr. Hampton?"
Ho smiled at her persistence.
"Yes. positive. Five years ago I took
my last vacation and 1 find myself just
as capable of enjoyment now as
"And just, as ready to fall in love!"
He was taken aback. "I do not quite
understand, Miss Heyward." There
was just a trace of haughtiness in Iiis
"Why, you know all men are ever
ready to fall in love?and to fall out
"Hardly all men, Miss Heyward."
His voice was reproachful. "Do yon
think it altogether fair to make so
sweeping an assertion?"
"No, it was not, but you have never
been guilty of that. Mr. Hampton?"
"No, Miss Heyward, decidedly no!
That very quality I have always re?
garded in man's character as one of his
lowest, meanest traits. For me to love
once would be to love always."
"Would be. Mr. Hampton?" she look?
ed shyly up at him.
He was perplexed. Was this beau?
tiful girl drawing him on? It seemed
hardly probable, and yet what could be
her object in all this?
"You are cynical. Miss Hey ward?"
"No, hardly that."
She leaned back wearily against the
massive wall of rock, and in contrast
to it she seemed so frail he longed to
protect her, to shield her from the men
who had made her doubt. He tried to
speak in commonplace terms, but his
voice refused to be controlled. She
turned quickly toward him and, just
for a moment, her lingers rested upon
"Mr. Hampton, some years ago one
of my girl friends met a man who

she waited for him with a blind trust.
"Imagine her feelings when, some
time ago, she, grown to a woman, met

ed attentions upon her. even attempted
to make love to her."
Hampton leaned back against the
cliff and. with his paddle, traced fig?
ures in the sand.

Suddenly he straightened up. Hf

Kate." She drew her young form ur
to its full height and stepped out frone
the rock. Her resolute head was sil?
houetted against the silver moon.
"Stop! Five years make a great dif

His hands dropped to his side.

Among the gallant defenders of "Old
Glory" at the battle of New Orleans
none served more faithfully than Capt.
Samuel Chester Keid. This same Capt.
Heid was the man who suggested the
present form of the Hag.
After the flag had, by the admis?
sion of two States, come to bo one of
fifteen stars and fifteen stripes, the
admission of Tennessee. Ohio. Indiana
and Louisiana rendered a change de?
sirable, and in 181G a committee was
appointed to inquire into the expe?
diency of altering the flag.
Capt. Reid was consulted. He at
at once suggested that the stripes lie
reduced to tnirteen. and that the Union
have a star for every State, new stars
to be added to the flag on the Fourth
of July following the admission of the

Another curious profession among
the Bodouin is that of the "thief-track?
ers." Being wit bout paddocks or sta?
bles, and their animals always more ot
less at liberty, theft of stock would ap?
pear to lie. an easy and frequent matter
Each tribe, however, has its little com?
pany of "trackers," and it would be
either a bold or an ignorant man in?
deed who ventured to interfere with an
Arab's live-stock. I have heard of one
instance in which a camel stolen from
a camp near Ismailia was. after weeks
of labor, successfully tracked to the Su?
dan, where the beast was recaptured
and summary vengeance wreaked upon
the robbers. Selected for natural abil?
ity, and trained from boyhood to dis?
criminate between each animal's foot?
prints, this faculty becomes so highly
developed that a particular horse's or
camel's trail is unerringly picked up
from among the thousands of impres?
sions on the dusty highway .--Century
A mistake is very often made in as?
suming that cold drinks are necessary
to relieve thirst. As a matter of fact
very cold drinks frequently, increase
the feverish condition of the mouth
and stomach, and so produce that very
condition which is sought to be allevi?
ated. It has been shown by experience
that hot drinks relieve the thirst ant!
cool the body, when it is unduly heat?
ed, in a more effectual mannet
than ice-cold drinks. Indeed, a high?
er temperature is to be preferred, and
those who arc much troubled with
thirst might do worse than try the ad?
vantages to be derived from hot drinks
instead of the cold ones to which they
have been accustomed. Hot drinks
have the additional advantage of aid?
ing digestion, instead of injuriously af?
fecting the stomach and bowels.?The

i "Better ask him to come himself,"
replied one of the others.
"Do you think that would be better
than writing out all the facts and
sending them to him?"
"Sure. Then he can get what he

Besides, it will please him, you know,
I and he'll probably do a lot better by
us than he would otherwise."
"11 we're inning to ask hin; to come,"
