"Miss Upton," said the "editor o
the Woman \> Page, holding a smal
slip*of printed matter in her hand,
"here is a report that Mrs. Harmon's
daughter is going to marry a distin
guish?d foreigner. Mrs. Harmon anc
the girl have been traveling in Europe
for a year and are just back. . The
girl may havo caught an - EngisL
duke or something, as these Harmons
are so rich. See her, find ont who
the man is, and write up all you oan
get about it. If it's true, the woman
will be glad enough to talk about it."
"Where does Mrs. Harmon live?"
asked Miss Upton, taking the "cut
"Oh, I don't know," replied the
editorial lady - with a touch of impa
tienc3, as she snipped out another
paragraph marked with a blue cross
from the paper before her, giving four
quick clicks with the office shears.
" You'll have to get that from the di
rectory or the '3ocial Register. ' Miss
Jameson!" she called, sharply, taking
the freshly cut slip in her hand and
looking past Letty with an air of to
tally dismissing her from her mind.
Letty withdrew, got the directory
and looked for "Harmon" There
were so many Harmons that she con
cluded she had better try the "Social
Register." The "Mrs. Harmon"
whose daughter was to make a brilliant
marriage would be there, and several
of the directory Harmons would not.
She took down the names of half a
dozen Harmons, with the addresses.
She very much wished to ask the so
ciety editor-which'"Mrs. Harmon of
this oityi"---that was all the slip said
was the Mrs. -'Harmon of her list; but
she felt it would be more creditable to
find that out herself. So she arranged
her list in the order of their resi
dences as she would have to take them
on her way up-town and sallied brisk
ly'forth. . ' .
Miss .. Upton had determined that
she was not going to be-a "lady jour
nalist" or "a lady who writesfor the
papers," but a "newspaper, woman."
This title seemed to her honest and
direct and dignified. A "newspaper
woman" would get sooner to writing
those long, illustrated, signed "stories"
in the Sunday paper than either of
the other kinds of writers would!
She called at the first place on the
list and sent in her card by a maid
who returned with the request that,
Miss Upton would state her -purpose
there, as Mrs. Harmon was very busy.
letty did not wiah tb announce
herself to a servant ns a "newspaper
woman"-she could convey that ib
formatiou with better results if she
did it personally. Some people had a
prejudice against "reporters."- .-Now
she said simply, "I am from the-Daily
Investigator." . ~".
"Mrs. Harmon never sees newspaper

"I should like yon to tell ypnr. mis
tress that this- is about something
which she is interested in and that I
will not detain her long," said Letty,
with aggravated dignity.
The maid re'uetantly obeyed, or at
lea>i disappeaied for a Short time.
Th > she came back and said, "Mrs.
Harmon begs to be excused."
Letty was a little crestfallen. She
did not believe the maid had been
near her mistress again. - How very
mean in a rich woman with plenty of
leisure to refuge even a reception to a
girl seeking fo earn a living!

would be no object in calling on the
Other unimportant bearers of that
"No,' said the naid, as she dosed
the door in Miss lipton's face:
"Then she isn't the one I want,*'
: said the newspaper woman to herself j
''and i h?v? no more desire to see her
than She has to see me;"
Trying to keep np her courageby
this reflection; Letty made her way to
the next house on her list, and there
-affecting a slightly haughty air as
being likely to impress the . sei'vant
and thereby, poss bly, the mistress
she said, "I should like to see Mrs.
Harmon for a moment."
The servant looked at her with 3ome
surprise. "Mrs. Harmon is dead this
two years," he said, deliberately.,
h "?h, really-!" replie! Letty," her
haughty air suffering a sudden col
lapse. "Perhaps I have mad? n mis
take. This-isn't-Mrs.Nugent Har

mon on her list. Letty wa? proud of
"No. This is Mr. Thomas Har
mon's; but Mrs. Nugent Harmon is
dead, too," replied the man,regarding
heT with increased curiosity. ?
Letty blushed furiously and felt a
wild desire to laugh. This would cer
tainly not have enhanced her standiug
in the servant's eyes. Then, since
this man seemed so acquainted with
the Harmons, she wai tempted to ask
him if he knew which was the Mrs.
Harmon whose daughter was to marry
a foreign nobleman.
But Letty could not quite bring her
self to gleaning the news she needed
by friendly, coniideutial talk with men
servants. So she only said, nervous
ly, "There .must be a mistake some
where. Thank you," and hurried
down the steps,feeling as if the man's
inquis tive eyes were burning into
All this wasn't very nice. In those,
"stories" of the Sunday papers there
had been no preliminary failures to

"been cordially motioned to a chair,"
and then "Mr. or Mrs. Whoever had

However, to be discouraged would
nev.eV do, 'so Letty, after a little sigh
as she 'saw two young girls of her own
age roll by in aa e'egaai Victoria, went
to the next Mrs. Harmon, wondering
whether she were dead, too.
But'she would have no mistakes
here. She wrote on her card, "Will
Mrs. Harmon please see Miss Upton*

Ah! Here was the reward of indus
try. . The servant said, "Mrs. Harmon
will be down in a moment, miss. Will
you please sit down aud wait?"
Ina few moments Mrs. Harmon
came in*. She looked like a wealthy
society woman, though younger than
Mks Upton had expected to rind her;
She had a pair of keen, black eyes,her
face was a sharply poiutol one, and
her lips were rather thin.
She bowed to the reporter pleasant
ly euough.but did not offer her hand.
What-could she do for Miss Upton?
She knew the Daily Investigator very
well. There was a- slight accent on
"There is a report, Mrs. Harmon,
that your daughter is to marry a for
eigner of title, whom you met during
your travels in Europe this past year,"
said Miss .Upton, with her most ingra
tiating manner. "Won't you tell me
some of the particulars?"
? "Do you want to publish what I say
in The investigator?" asked Mrs. Har-,
mon, quickly. . 1
"Why, of course,I want to print all

* Mrs. Harmon's eyes twinkled, and
she drew in her lips a little strongly.
She seemed amused:
"She's tickled to death over it and>

Miss Upton, with an approving reflec
tion on her own diplomatic tact. .
. "Well,'you must ?sk me what you

amusing to her!

papers find out everything. Will it
be in tomorrow's paper?. I mean are
you going to write anything abeu li it?
I shan't see another - person- from a
paper. It's too dangerous."
She was evidently putting an end
to the interview to keep herself from
telling a quantity of things more
which the wily Miss Uptou would
worm- out of her.
The young "newspaper woman"
was- pretty well content. She had
learned enough in this indirect way to

The editor of thp Woman's Page

had not thought of it. Well, she
could try and get that later, and they
could priut it on Sunday. Miss Upton

was scrupulously regarded by the

these relics were placed in his coffin

The stone vault surmounted by a bust
supposed to resemble the explorer,
but said to differ in every detail from
his portraits. The bones of Colum
bus, the Spaniards say, were taken to
Havana in 1795 and placed in a grave
dug under the spot where the vault
now stands. In 1822 the Spaniards
in Cuba erected the present tomb and
placed beneath the bust of Columbus
the following inscription:

It is easy to concede that the lead

the oae in which the bones of the

for it is generally admitted that the
name America, which appeared on the
casket, was used before 1509, and the
Gothic characters ia the interior of the
