lt was a fair October day, a day of
? blue skies and sunny rays, a day with
a springlike breath in the soft'air.
\ The man walking slowly along the
** road that wound close to the eage of
the valley, stopped now and then and
drew in the. pleasant air with a grate
ful smile. Ile was net a man who
smiled often. His air was serious,
his movements deliberate. His close
cut beard was gray, but his dark eyes
beneath the jutting brows were k^een
He paused presently and lopked
across the valley and his smile deep
"A pleasant morning," said a voice
.close at hand.
He looked arcane? with a little start
and his smile faded. A girl, a strange
girl who had softly crossed the road,
confronted him. He was not ii a
mood to he annoyed by stranger^.
"You have mentioned a fact that
admits of.no argument." he' gruiHy
ahsvCered, and slowly moved along,
his kean gaze returning to the Valley
and the hills beyond.
" But the interruption continued.
"Will you let me stats one more
fact that doesn't admit of argument?"
said the undaunted one. "Our little

He looked around frowningly, a
sharp rebuke on his lips. The girl
was regarding him with a pleasant
smile. She was net a young girl,
twenty-five, perhaps, a slender girl
with brown hair and dark eyes.
The rebuke -was softened.
"I'll admit the view is highly satis
factory/' he said. "Good morning."
She did not move away.
- Presently he looked around and
saw her and growling beneath his
breath, slowly continued his walk.
The girl kept pace with him, but
at a little distance.
-Boes it look now as it looked Cf ty
years ago?" she presently asked.
He, turned quickly, but she was
gazing across the valley with an ab

, "I wish they could have heard that
in the big office," sne said.
He whirled about.
"What did you say?" he sharply
The girl laughed again.
"I like this," she said. "It is so
gratifying to be able to approach you
without a card and a boy in buttons
*and a long, and hopeless wait at a
closed door. "
The man tried to frown.
"You ?re too clever," he said. "If
you know as much as you pretend to
know,-you are aware that I don't like
clever women-more especially clever
"I'm afraid." said the girl, "that
you have never shown any fairness in
your treatment of us.. What do you
know about girls?"
The man suddenly chuckled. .
? "I might reply that the present
sample does not impress me with the
magnitude of ny neglect. "
The girl's face grew grave.
"Do you know," she said, "I had al

He couldn't help Chuckling again
and the girl laughed with him.
"What's the matter with me?" he
suddenly said-. "I'm getting foolish."
He scowled fiercely. "Come, come,"
he cried, "what's thc favor you are
The girl opened her trown eyes
"Favor?" she repeated. "I'm net
after any favor. In fact, I think it
may be the other way."
The man smiled.
"You certainly arc amusing," he
said. "I begin to like your assurance.
And you arouse my curiosity."
"You flatter me beyond all de
serving," said the girl, .with a quick
little courtesy. "I amuse you, I

And she courtesied again with a

"Yes. It is a tradition anions us.
And we all think you will come back

unheralded to look the field over.
That's your way." She paused and a
smile twitched the corners of her
mouth. "And I think," she added,
"that you are just a little puzzled."
He stared at her.
"Because you can't at the moment
discover any way to improve upon
the route suggested by your experts."
The man was not angry On the
contrary he shook his head at her in
an almost amusing way.
ii You are uncanny," he said.
"No," she answered. "I am merely
observant-If you credit a woman
with so valuable a trait. Will you
stop here, please?"
He obeyed her.
"Let us say that your new road
comes in from Somers around the cor
ner of the lake and skirts the marsh
land on a twenty-foot rise along the
.base of Bald hill. Then an eighty
foot bridge will carry it over the
gorge and lift it to a fifty-foot level
just below us. From here you can
rua dii-ectly south with not more than
eighteen-foot rise to the mile."
; He turned and'stared at her.
"Did you plan this out yourself?"
"No," she answered. "It's not
minek It was mapped a dozen jdars
ago. It is only mine by right of in
heritance." She gave him a quick
smile. "Are you fond of buttermilk.
"Very," he answered.
"If you will walk with me to our
home I will be glad to'let you sample
our brand. And there is something
I want to show you." .
"Thank you," he said. "You honor
me by your invitation."

"She is taking her afternoon nap."
"Present her my kindest regards
and sympathy," said the man, as he
put down the glass.
The girl had opened the old book
case ?nd brought cut a portfolio.
"My father was an engineer and
draftsman. Mr. Gordon," she said,
"but his health broke down and he
came home to die. It had been his

back with the letters.

that this is a very responsible place

"No, I'm not," he quickly an
swered. "It's your misfortune. If
you were not a woman I might be

HEADING OFF BLINDNESS.
Proposed Measures to Prevent In
fection at Birth,
John E. Ray, Principal State School
for the Blind and the Deaf, Raleigh,
N. C., has issued the following :
A special committee of the New
York Association for the Blind which
was appointed to investigate the
causes of preventable blindness and
to cooperate with physicians in seek
ing measures of prevention,. has re
ported that the" State Board of
Health has taken- steps tc insure
against the widespread cause of
blindness through infection at hirth.
The committee has found that
about one-half of all blindness is due
to preventable causes, and that about
one-third bf the cases of blindness
in children is caused by ophthalmia j
neonatorum, a preventable infectious i
disease occrring at birth. A drop of I
a 1 per cent solution of silver nitrate ?
dropped into the eyes of - a child at I
birth is a sufficient preventive of j
this infection. The.use of this anti-1
septic has been recommended by the
American Medical Association, and \
the committee of the New York Asso-j
ciation for the Blind has united with '
the State Commissioner of Health in
enforcing the ^general use of this
precaution. The State Commissioner
of Health will endeavor to provide ?
this solution through, local health'of-j
fleers to any physician and midwife,
applying for it.
. Birth certificates issued by the
State Department now bear ' the
query: "Wha'; prevetiyc for ophthal
mia neonatorum did you use?"' If
none, state the reason therefor." It
has been enacted that these notifica
tions of birth be returned in thirty
six hours instead cf ten days, as
heretofore. It is believed that if a
physician or midwife- has failed to
use such a preventive the' reminder
on the birth certificate will in most
instances prove effective."
The above is a clipping taken from
a recent issue of the New York Sun.
It \ells.its own story. It shows that
the authorities of at least one State
are alive to the appalling condition
which confronts the commonwealth.
Nov is New York the only State in
which active efforts are being put
forth to "head off" one .of the mo:;t
distressing calamities which can be
fall a human being. And to realize
that much of this distress >can be pre
vented is a loud call to.-.every-citizen
in the nation.
There are enrolled the present ses
sion in the North Carolina State
School for the Blind and Deaf 2(53.
blind children (besides 100 deaf chil
dren.) At least one-fonrth^of these
need never have been blind, and
would not have been, if proper pre
ventive remedies had b^'n employ
ed within twenty-four nours after
the birth of the chili. Gentile reader,
do you realize that there are from
sixty-five to ninety children in this
school doomed to a life of darkness
and a handicap in the race for
bread-winning all their days-some
of them to lead the lives bf helpless
dependents, if not abject paupers?
And there are still at least 128 more
blind children in the State who have
not been enrolled in our school at all.
This will make the figures the more
appalling-one hundred and thirty
blind children in North Carolina
whose sight might have been preser'/
ed with a little care exercised and al
most without expensed
And let every physician andym.id
I wife in North Carolina supply^im-;
self or herself with this preparation
and attend to its proper administra
tion in every case. Care should be
taken that the solution .r sall not be
stronger thant one per cent,
j There is yet another phase of pre
ventable blindness about which I
will not write . fully now. It is in
connection with hereditary blindness.
I had not laid much stress upon this
until I read a very learned treatise
recently written by Clarence Loeb,-A.
M., M. D., of St. Louis, Mo. He has
examined thoroughly and . minutely
into the history of 1,204 families in
all parts of? the United States in
which one or both parents were blind
from one to twelve diseases of the
eye. The percentage of blindness in
the 4,155 children boni in these
families varies from 54.8 to 66.4. And
to my surprise the percentage, of
blindness in the collateral heredity is
greatest, viz,: 66.4! Dr. Loeb con
cludes from the results of his in
vestigations that persons born blind
(congenital) ought never to marry.
