Alice Ellinghain was indubitably a
pretty girl. Not pretty with the un

blue eyes and straight, Greek features,
but with the beauty of soul and mind,
and rich womanly temperament-and
at 17 Alice had pronged her

"For you know I love him."
"Love," said Mrs. Ellingham, half
scornfully. "That's a word that will
do very well for poets and romane- s.
I don't believe in it myself. I dbi
marry for love!"
"No, mamma," said Alice, miscble
ously, "you married for money; nHl

"That was because Mr. Ellingham
was too much of a fanatic to take my
advice about the Investments," she
said, tartly. "But it has nothing to do
with the matter at present under dis
cussion. You have engaged yourself
to Oscar Wayne, who calls himself an
artist An artist, indeed-lie had

And he has gone out to the Territories

"Of course his hand and his heart
can be nothing to me," said Alice, look
ing dbWn dt the iilftin gold engagement
ting that shone on the forefinger of
her left hand. "For I love Oscar."
Mrs. Elliugham lay back among her
cushions with a deep and ostentatious

subject, if you please. I am quite
willing to allow you time to reflect up
on this momentous question. I have
told Mr. Fontaine that you will give
him an answer at thc end of the week.
Until then pray allow my tired brain
and overworked nerves to rest."
And Alice went away to her own
room, secretly avowing constancy to
her absent lover.
"Deni- Oscar," she murmured, softly
kissing the engagement ring which his
hand had placed upon her finger; "as
if I could ever be untrue to you. Not
all the gold in the world could tempt
But when the evening mail came in
and brought no letter from Oscar.
Alice did feel a little lonely and be

she said to herself.
But the morrow arrived, and
brought no letter.
"It's very strange," said Alice, with
tears in her eyes. "He never failed
"No more than I expected, my dear,"
said Mrs. Ellingham. "I shouldn't
be at all surprised if he had fallen
in love with some young woman out
there and settled down "for life. I'm
told art is better appreciated in the
west than it is here."
Alice bit her Up- but she did not
speak. Such bitter words were bet
ter left unanswered.
Mr. Fontaine came at about noon
to take the ladies out driving. Alice's
first impulse was to decline, but she
remembered that her mother was
fond of carriage exercise, and had
veny few opportunities to indulge that
liking-and she said "Yes."
TH drive out to Fontaine Abbey,"
said the rich and confidant suitor.
"My gardener sends in word that the
white grapes are ripe, and there are
some very fine tropical flowers in
blossom in the conservatory. And I
thought Mrs. Ellingham might per
haps honor me by by partaking of a
little lunch nf tor the drive."
Fontaine Abbey was a fine old place,
built in the style of a stately medieval
castle, with grounds that sloped to a
serene, silver river, acres of conserva
tories, ? picture gallery and a noble
entrance ball, where knights in armor
kept mailed guard. The carpets
were Persian-the tables of Florentine
mosaic-the lunch table a marvel of
Serres china, gold plate and import
Mr. Fontaine played the accom

American Machinists Who Go to China Gen
erally Get the Worst of IL
A great many skilled machinists and
engineers have gone to China from
this country during the past ten
yeaFS," said the captain of a large car
go steamer, who has made frequent
trips to the flowery kingdom. "Most
of them were engaged to take charge
of big plants, and while the job seem
ed tip-top on the surface the result
was nearly always disappointing. The
Chinese are very anxious to avail
themselves of foreign skill but take
care to dispense with it at the earliest
possime moment. A manufacturer, for
example, will put in modern machin
ery and hire an American expert as
a superintendent, giving him a couple
of sleepy looking young Chinamen as
assistants. In six months the sleepy
looking pair have mastered all the
technicalities of the plant and some

The fact that he has a Ave or ten
year contract ls no special obstacle.
All labor contracts may be voided for
good cause, and in China there is nev
er any difficulty In proving anything
you like about a man. I knew an Ohio
engineer who went to Canton several
years ago to set up and operate a large
plant in a silk mill. He was under a
five-year contract at $(5,000, gold, per
annum, and thought he had a soft
thing. Before his first year had
elapsed he was discharged on the
ground of habitual drunkenness, neg
lect of duty, waste of material. Insub
ordination and a dozen or so other lit
tle things I have forgotten. Being en
tirely Innocent, he showed fight, but
was overwhelmed by a cloud of wit
nesses and the case against him was
made so strong that the consul refused
to interfere. His place was taken by
his native assistant, who made a botch
of it and destroyed thousnnds of dol
lars' worth of costly machinery, but
that didn't help the engineer who was
sacked. American experts who know
the ropes insist upon having a clause
In their contracts authorizing them to
employ their own assistants. It has
been the same way with even the mil
itary instructors. The soldiers of for

time jobs were crowded out as soon as
young native officers learned enough

CHOSE OLDEST WIVES
Indiens Are Induced to Stop Practice of
Last week was a hard one for the
old men of the Kiowa, Comanche and
Apache tribes of Indians, says the
Wieb1 fa (Kan.) correspondent of the
Chicago Hecord. They had to give up
all of their wives but one. Some of
the medicine chiefs had as many as teri
women whom they called wives. All
but the favorite one are now living
away from the old buck's tepee.
When the law wa3 passed throwing
open to settlement the Kiowa,- Coman
che and Apache reservation, it was de
cided that these Indians should be
more civilized. It was with this end
In view thnt the Indian agent an
nounced to all the melt that they must
give up their numerous wives, or they
would receive no part of the land to
be alloted, nor would they receive their
share of the money shortly to be paid
them. It was a h?fd blow to the
tribes, ?s they have always practiced
polygamy without arty interference.
In reply to n letter1 from Agent A?is
chare, the Indians gathered at Darling
ton on the first of the week. The old
men had all of their wives with them.
The agent made a speech to them in
which he set forth the fact already
stated. Thc medicine men made re
plies. Rolling Pony, who had ten
beautiful young squaws and one old
one, was the principal talker against
the giving up of his wives. He said
that they represented him as a wealthy
man and if he had to give all of them
up but one the Indians would think
that he was a very poor man and he
would lose his influence among his peo
ple. He said that for his wives he had
paid nearly 1,000 ponies and had been
twenty years in gathering them around
his tepee. He made no mention of lov
ing any of them, but said they were
good workers and tended his crops In
good shape. The agent asked him if
he loved them and which one he liked
best. He made no reply, saying be did
not understand the question. Then the
agent told him he must make his
choice then and there. The squaws
were all lined up before the old man
and he looked at them long and earn
estly. Finally he selected the oldest
one, she being shown in the photograph
with him. Holling Pony has been an
Indian police for the last ten years,
but he told the agent he was going to
quit now, as the government had not
given him a fair deal. The discarded
squaws will be taken charge of by the
Indian agent and made to work for
Narjo, a Kiowa warrior, had five
wives, but he gave up all but one.
Gawkey, a Comanche policeman, had
eight wives and he kept the oldest one.
About sixty old men had to give up
their many wives and they Invariably
took the one they had bought first,
casting the youngest and prettiest
aside. The squaws who were thus de
serted did not seem to mind it, but
were glad to be released from the bard
work in their husband's harem. The
old men were very much against giving
up the many squaws, first because tho^v
represented nia?y ponies and, second,
they were a mark of Influence in In
dian society. The more squaws a med
icine man possessed the more popular
he was. It ls among this class of peo
ple that the white people who want tc
take free homes in the new country to
be given away soon will have to live,
They are peaceable Indians now, but
they cling to their old customs with a
nea rbi Ike tenacity.
Midas Seeks a Change.
"A man who wishes to sell your Ma

Chamberlain in a loud voice.
King Midas started from his soft,
"Has the man a large black mous
tache, and does he wear a silk hat with
a very broad brim?" he eagerly asked.
"Yes, your Majesty," the Chamber
lain replied, bowing low.
"Admit him!" commanded the King.
Then, turning to his courtiers with a
smile, the first they bad seen upon his
visage in years, he said:
"Here, at last, is something which
probably will not turn to gold the min

over a pale green transparency, and
