How swift* atas! the year prows old!
The flowers pass; the earth is cold.
A holMay of nun and song:
Then skies are gray and nights are long.
SHE TREED '
. Although the little village of Olden
was beginning to look bright with
the green of carly spring, down here
by the cove all was gray-sand, rocks,
sky, even the water had the sams
dreary tint Not a glenru of other
color, except that of the crimson
shawl which the girl, sitting on a
ledge of rock, had wrapped around her.
Laurence Dare, coming along the
road which ran above the b?nch, saw
the patch of red and paused.
"That is Monica," he muttered. .
He stood still a few minutes, watch
ing the slender figure leaning back
against a high range of rock, the shawl
drawn close around her shoulders,
the little black hat pushed back on the
dark hair, her gaze fixed on the gray
water. At sight of her Dare's heart
had given a great throb of joy. It was
so long, so long since he had seen her.
. He made a few long strides and stood
"Monica," he said softly.
The girl turned her hoad with a

voice and her brows came together lu

out 1. s hand.
"Are you not going to shake hands
with me. Monica? It ls so long since
I have seen you!"
The girl gave him her .hand with
reluctant air, withdrawing it quickly
from his warm clasp, and turning hoi
face again seaward.
After a glance of some moments,
which Dare spent in devouring eager
ly with his eyes every line of her pro
file, he oegnn:
"Monica, you are cruel; you have not
let me see you once this long winter. I
have boen down from the city so often,
and tried again and again to see you,
but each time that I called you had
Just gone out. I feel sure that you
saw me coming and went away pur
posely. Last night it was tue some
thing. But chance has been good to
me; I have missed my train this morn
ing, and so I have caught you; you had
no opportunity to avoid me."
The girl made no answer.
He went on: "Last summer you gave
me a faint hope that In time you
would listen to me. What have you
to say to me now? Have you not
thought of me all these long months?"
. ,She turned around to'him, her eyes
full of tears.
"I was wrong to let you think you
might hope, Laurence, for I can't do as
you wish. Don't you understand? It
seems wrong for me to listen to you.
Think. I belong to Allen: I was to have
been his wife. He was always talking
of Cousin Laurence; you seemed
Cousin Laurence to me, too. Don't

She Interrupted him quickly.
"Hush; we don't know; he must be

ness of voice, "think, it is four years;

"I must be faithful to him."
Dare flushed. "This is nonsense.
Monica," he said, half angrily. "If
Allen Is living," he went on, "why have
we not heard from him all these years?
Are you going to waste your life In
this little village and give up all
chance of happiness for a fanciful idea
of being bound to him? And think of
me! I have loved you so long. Come
to me. I shall love you so much that
you must love me in return; come, l
swear that you shall never regret lt,
"I ean't Laurence."
"VIII you spoil both of our lives?"
"I must not listen, Laurence, I wish
that you did not care for me."
"I can't help caring for you. I think
I have loved you since the first day I
saw you, and now that you are free-"
"i am not free."
"Monica, listen !"
She stood up. "I must not. Laurence,
Try to forget me. I am going home; do
And before he could stop her she had
She went along swiftly until she
knew that she was out of view from
the cove. Her thoughts were in a
whirl. Why should she not yield ? She
knew that her happiness would be se
cure with this strong, tender man.
How little he guessed her struggle to
resist his pleading. He thought she
did not care. In the old days she bad
compared Allen with him, and always
to the former's disadvantage. For
after the first glamour of their engage
ment she had seen the shallowness and
selfishness of Allen's nature, and in the
close relations Into which through her
engagement she was brought with
Allen's cousin Laurence she bad rec
ognized the strong and noble charac
ter of the latter.
And these last years how the tend
erness of his nature had shown out.
What care he had given to Allen's des
olate mother. He had almost filled
the place of her son. Still, at first her
feeling for him bad been only a strong
admiration. In spite of her recogni
tion of Allen's weak nature, the fas
cination of hi?? glance and soft voice
bad held her captive. But now!
When Allen had gone west on the pros
. pecting tour, which was to occupy ten
months, she had promised to marry
.-him upon his return. But the ten
months bad passed, and other months
bad grown into years, and he bad not
returned. They had no news of him
after that last letter, written seven
months from bis departure. Laurence
had employed every means at his com
mand to find some trace of him, but In
vain. He appeared to have vanished
utterly. The only reasonable solution
of the mystery was that he was dead.
His mother believed lt, but Monica did

that promise. .' " ' ad loved her,
She must-she would-be faithful. She
would not yield to Laurence!
Dare did not again soe Monica,
although at each visit he had made
his aunt during the spring he called at
the parsonage. But Monica had
always been out The minister and
his wife received him most cordially.
They would gladly have seen their
dnughter his wlfa
One day In June Monica was return
ing from a walk down to the cove. Uer
way was in the neighborhood or
Allen's mother's. As it was still early
in the afternoon, she decided to go and
pay her a call. She had not goue to sec
her often of late, through fear of meet
She felt that she would run no risk
of meeting him this afternoon, he
having visited his aunt the previous
week. On reaching the house she
found the hall door open. She knocked
llghtlly and without walting for a re
sponse walked into the little parlor
where she knew Mrs. Dare was in the
habit of sitting.
But at the threshold Monica paused,
for there stood Laurence by the win
dow, an open letter in his hand. His
aunt sat near him, apparently In a
state of great excitement
As she saw Monica she cried out:
"He lives, Monica; he lives; my boy
lives; my own Allen is living. Come in
and hear the letter."
Then she fell to weeping, and re
peating ovr and over: "My boy is liv
Monica looked from her to Dare In
bewilderment. She had turned very
white. Laurence went up to her an?
drevt her to a chair. He, too. was pale.
"Is It true?" gasped Monica, at
"Yes." But he did not look at her.
"I received the letter this morning,
and came down by the first train."
"He is well?"
"Where ls he? I dou't understand."
Monica looked at him confusedly.
"Why-why haven't I-but I have
been out nil the afternoon. I suppose
that I shall find a letter at home."
Dare did not reply. His aunt was
still crying. She now looked up at
"Finish the letter. Laurence.
Listen, Monica; our Allen is still
Dare had folded the letter and was
putting it Into his pocket
"There Is little more of importance,
"But Monica must hear it, Laurence.
Monica, dear child, we'll be happy
now. Read the letter for her
"My dear aunt, you must try to
calm yourself or you will be ill."
Monica was puzaled by Dare's evi
dent desire not to read the letter to her.
She went over to Mrs. Dare and em
"Laurence Is rf frat; you must try to
be calm, dear Mrs. Dare."
"Joy never kills, child. I must cry
for pure happiness."
"I shall go home now," said Monica.
"Perhaps there Is a letter for me."
"Well, child, but come early to
morrow. We'll count the days till we
sec the boy."
Laurence had left the room and stood
at the entrance door.
"I am coming with you," he said, as
Monica came out.
Dare regarded the girl stealthily as
they walked along. He marveled at
the unimpassioned manner in which
she had received the news of Alleu's
being alive. She was still very white,
and there was a strained look in her
face-not the expression of joy he
would have expected to see. She
walked rapidly, paying no heed to
He put his hand gently on her arm.
"Do not walk so fast, Monica. You
will tire yourself out."
She did not reply, but went more
"Monica," began Dare, hesitatingly.
"I-do not think that you will find a
letter from Allen."
She stopped still and looked at him.
"What is it Laurence? You are
hiding something. What ls the mys
tery? Why did you not wish to read
"Monica, I believe you are a brave
girl. Call np all your pride now."
She gazed at him with wondering
"Laurence, what is lt?"
He looked around hastily. It was
but a short distance to the rocks at the
cove and the place was deserted.
"Let us go down there. I cannot
talk to yon here."
She followed him submissively.
Thoughts of their last interview at
this place came to her mind. How
miserable she had been then, and how
miserable now. Allen was alive, and
she, wretched girl, was not glad. She
did not love him. It was Laurence
that she loved, but she must be faith
ful to Allen. Laurence must never
guess what a wicked girl she was.
Allen alive, and she not glnd, and
what was Laurence going to tell her?
Dare seated her In a sheltered
position and stood looking at her, a
world of compassion in his eyes.
"Monica, I would give my life to
spare you this. Allen is a scouudrel."
He drew the letter from his pocket,
opening lt ?lowly.
"What is it Laurence? Why do you
Then, as he did not answer, she
said with a touch of imperiousness In '
her voice: "Let rae rend lt."
He gave lt to her and she read. She
passed hastily over the preliminary
lines. But what was this?
"I shall walt until later,
Laurence, old boy, to give you the de
tails of these years. Briefly, the en

to achieve some measure of success bo

hard names you wish, but I fell in love
with her and we were married. I was
a coward, I know, but she loved me to

Believe me, I hove not been very easy
when I thought of my mother an(J
Monica. But I met Melton last weeli

You will suit Monica far better than
I should have done. You have the
same high ideals of duty and nil
that sort of thing. I confess to living
on a lower plane."
Dare stood looking at her sadly,
cursing Allen In his heart.
"My darling, if I could have spared
you this-" he said.
Monica looked at him and said, trem
"Laurence, I tried all along to be
faithful to Allen, but-"
"But what. Monica?"
She stood up and looked Into his
eyes a fleeting glance, but it was
enough for Dare.-Chicago Record.

I fJausE a World's framine 8
S Edward Atkinson's Dire Prediction, o
Er VERY now and again some
scientific Investigator, delving
I deep Into the secrets of n'apii
forces, has unearthed a menac
which has seemed to threaten world-1
wide disaster and destruction to vine
human race, says the New York Her
ald. It would he hard to tell how
many acores of times the people pf the
earth have been called upon to,
the prospect, remote or imm?diate,
of their own annihilation. They have
been asked to consider the results
whlcb, In some future cycle, will come
from the steady cooling of the earth's
surface, to prepare for mundane anni
hilation through collision with some
whirling comet and to give attention
to dozens of other hypotheses equally
In the multiplicity of these theories
lt would seem that thc possibilities had
been exhausted, but every now and
then a new deduction is brought for
ward to startle the world. It has re
mained for Mr. Edward Atkinson, the
scientist, essayist und political agita
tor, to develop the newest and most
surprising theory as to the nature of
the embarrassments which will force
themselves upon the world's Inhabit
ants as the centuries roll around. Mr.
Atkinson believes with Slr William
Crookes and some other eminent sci
entific speculators that the great diffi
culty, when it arises, will come in the
form of hunger-the exhaustion of the
world's food supply. But be does not
believe this will be reached through
over-population or the taking up of
all the arable land. Mr. Atkinson's
suggestion, which is nique at least, is
that the world famine is likely to come
in the form of a potash famine
through the using up of the potash in
the soil, and the consequent failure
of the land to produce food crops.
It is safe to say that most persons
never have taken potash into consid
eration as one of the food essentials
of the planet. It is a fact, however,
AN AMERICAN FARM IF WHAT Ml
that It possesses real Importance In
the production of almost every foot!
crop that grows. Potash is present
in every part of tbe enrtb's crust, at
least In every part presenting an ara

tlons for the gypsy moth work the
ble surface. Soluble potassium salts
are found In quantities in all fertile
soils. These salts are sucked up by
the roots of plants and trees, which
eagerly seek them out os necessities
of life. It ls a significant fact that
even where soda predominates in the
soil the plants take up the potash
salts in preference.
After taking part In the processes of
nutrition and being transformed into
organic salts the potash salts may re
sume their original form through com
bustion. There ls a loss In quantity,
however, nud in the case of plants
which are used for food or in the vari
ous human arts there is, of course, a
nearly complete loss. The cause for
concern In regard to the question of
the" w.brld's future food supply-Hw
In the fact that potash is not renewed
in the manner of some other elements
of vegetable life. It is a mineral de
posit arising through the natural de
composition of certain rocks. On tilled
laud there ls no opportunity for re
INSPECTING FOB POTASH IN ARIZONA
newal In the ordinary course of rota
tion. It must be supplied, if at all,
from large mineral deposits.
This would be a simple matter if
these deposits were large nud numer
ous. Inasmuch as potash is found In
almost every part of the world it
would seem probable that such large
deposits would be of frequent occur
rence. But, as Mr. Atkinson points
out, exactly the reverse ls the case.
In discussing the matter before the
Association for the Advancement of
Science he called attention to the fact
that the world's entire supply ls at
present being drawn from the mines
of Strnssfurt, Germany, and that,
while other fields equally great may
possibly exist, they have not been un
covered up to the present time.
Practically every blt of the potash
used In the United States ls imported,
and the volume of these imports ls
Increasing rapidly, as the constant
working of the soil makes the use of
fertilizers more and more necessary.
At the present time these imports
amount to more than $2,000,000 year
ly, although the proportion of our soil
requiring artificial stimulus ls rela
tively very small. Potash ls not now
expensive, even with the necessity of
bringing lt across the Atlantic. The
real danger, as Mr. Atkinson sees it,
R. ATKINSON SAYS COMES TRUE.
ls in the exhaustion of the source of
supply when the demand grows, as
it is practically certain to do in ever
Not even Mr. Atkinson contends that
a food famine from the exhaustion of
the potash supply ls imminent, but the
possibilities of such a famine are in
teresting to contemplate. It would
come about gradually, of course, the
dwindling of the supply being accom
panied by a steady increase in price.
The lirst result, therefore, would be
to plo ce this once humble product
among the precious metals. As time
went on it would rank, as Mr. At
kinson suggests, even above silver and
Before this point was reached, how
ever, the rise in the value of the min
eral would cause it to be sought ofter
eagerly in every part of the world,
would lead to the conserving of the
present sources of supply and to an
attempt to find new ones. Men would
prospect for potash with greater zeal
than they now put into the search af
ter gold. The terrors of the alkali
deserts would be braved and men
would bore for tho precious deposits
all over the burning plains of the
At the same time, efforts would be
made to gather tho product from the
scatered sources of -sw?ply now in ex
istence in some . financially profitable
manner. According to Professor Ditt
mar, the very greatest of ail these
sources ls the ocean, and no doubt the
brains of inventors and scientists
would be racked to devise a means
of separating this potash from the
waves. In all primitive countries
where thc supply of wood is large pot
ash is obtained by the lixiviation of
This source also would be brought
into use, and gradually the forest trees
and such plants ns nettles, wormwood,
tobacco and kelp, all of which are
capable of supplying potash in consid
erable quantities, would be burned to
rejuvenate the impoverished soil. Men
would live more and more largely upon
the food plants, requiring only a small
1 nrWrjTJBfr of potashsfor their growth, and
a complete change in the accepted sys
tems of diet wr-ild result
To pursue the unpleasant transfor
mation to its final result it is neces
sary to picture a world growing grad
ually more and more completely de
void of life, farms barren of vegeta
tion, houses and cities deserted and
a race of beings growlug steadily
weaker and weaker, and, even in the
Intermediate stages of the change,
entirely different from those who now
inhabit the earth.
It is reassuring to note that the con
census of opinion among scientists is
that this extreme condition never will
be realized. There ls one great prin
ciple generally accepted as holding
good for all the operations of nature,
which scientists bring up in opposi
tion to those who predict a final cat
aclysm of the world In any form
whatever. That ls the principle of the
indestructibility of matter. At a din
ner of scientists held in Washington
at which the predictions of Slr Will
iam Crookes and Mr. Atkinson formed
the leading topic of discussion, this
principle was advanced as the chief
argument against their conclusions.
The scientists were confident in the
belief that the potash taken in a thou
sand forms from the earth would in
some form return to the earth, and
that in some way the conversion of
potash from varied sources Into shape
by which it could feed the soil, would
come about when necessity demanded
There is no doubt, however, that the
discovery of an addition to the world's
supply of potash ls a matter of real
importance, and it is likely that the
sensation caused by the statements of
Mr. Atkinson will lend to a vigorous
search for deposits in this country.
If such deposits of any considerable
extent are in existence In any part of
the country they undoubtedly will be
uncovered before the German field ls
