wrapped lu her tironui, smiling, mus

scenery.
When Mart lb asked her If she liked
to be a ftinrried woman, traveling with
her husband, she smiled and said that
it seemed "funny." For the moat part
she was silent, pleased and interested,
hut not quite her usual unconcerned
self. After dinner they had a Jong,

She had a .".0 ,
of Dad reading before the fire, of the
little brown room upstairs, with Alix,
Blender in her thin nightgown, yawning
over her prayers, A rush of reluc
tance- -of strangeness-ol' something
like terror smote ber. She fought the
homesickness down resolutely: every
thing would seem brighter tomorrow,
when the morning and the sunshine
came again.
There was a brown and red car
pet In the oblong of tho room, and a
brown bureau, and a wide Iron beti
With a limp spread, and a peeling
brown washstand with a pitcher and
hnsln. Tho boy lighted a Hare of elec
tric lights which made the chocolate
and gold wallpaper look like one pat
tern In the light and another in the
shadow. A man laughed in thc ad
joining room ; tho vole? seemed very
near.
Cherry bad never been In a hotel
of this sort before. It seemed to ber
cheap and horrible ; she did not want
to stny in this room, and Martin, tip
ping the boy and asking for ice-water,
seemed somehow a part of this new
strangeness and crudeness, she beean
to be afraid that be would think she
was Silly, presently, If she sahl her
prayers ns usual.
. ***?**?
In the morning Martin hired a phae
ton and they drove oui to tho mine.
Cherry had had a good breakfast and
was wearing a new gown : they slopped
another phaeton on the long, pleasant
drive and Martin said to the fat man
in lt:
"Mr. Bates, I want to make you ac
quainted with my wife!"
"Pleased to meet you, Mrs. Lloyd 1"
said the fat man, pleasantly. Marlin
told Cherry, when they passed him,
that that was the superintendent of
the mine, and seemed pleased ut tho
encounter. Presently Marlin put his
arm about her and the bay horse daw
dled along at his own sweet will, while
Martin's deep voice told his wife over
and over again how adorable and heall'
tiful she was and how he loved her.
Cherry listened happily, and for a
little while the old sense of pride and
achievement came back-she vns mar
ried ; she was wearing a plain gold
ring! But after a few days thal feel
ing vanished forever and Instead lt
began to seem strange to her that
she lind ever been anything else than
Martin's wife.
For several days she and Martin
laughed Incessantly and praised each
oilier incessantly, while they experi
mented with cooking and ate delicious
gypsy meals.
/
r
Hy midwinter Cherry hail settled
down to tho business of life, buying
bacilli and hird und sugar and mutches
Rt the store of the mine, cooking and
cleaning) sweeping, and making beds.
She still kissed Martin good-by overy
morning and met him with an affec
tionate rush ut the door when he came
home, mid they played Five Hundred
evening after evening lifter dinner,
quarreling for points und laughing ut
each other, while rain sluiced down on
the porch. Hut sometimes she won
dered hew lt lind nil conn? about, won
dered what had become of the violent
emotions that had picked her out of
thu valley hume and established ber :
her?', in this strange place, with tills
man she laid never seen n year ugo.
Of these emotions little was loft !
Sb.' still liked Martin, she tobi her- ;
self, ami she still told him thal she j
loved him. Hut she knew sh? did not ,
love Iiiiii, nial in such an association j
as theirs Herc can he no liking. Her !
thoughts rarely rested on him; she ?
was either thinking of Hie prunes (bat \
were soaking, the firewood that was I
running low, the towels that a wet
breeze wns blowing on the Hue; or
she was far away, drifting In vague
realms where feelings entirely strange
to this bare little mining camp and
this hungry, busy, commonplace man,
held sway.
The liest time that she quarreled
with Martin she cried for an entire
day, with tho old childish feeling that
somehow her crying muttered, some
how her abandonment would help to !
straighten uiTulrs. The cause nf the
quarrel was a trille; her father had
sent her a Christians check and she

Intercourse, and when the clock came,

be broke her heart afresh by pretend

Hut on Christinas eve he was de
Inyed at tho mine and Cherry, smitten
suddenly with the bitterness of having
their first Christmas spoiled In this
way, sat up for him, huddled in her
silk wrapper by the air-tight stove.
She was awakened by feeling herself
lowered tenderly into bed and raised
warm anns to clasp his neck um) they
kissed each other.
Tho next day they laughed at the
clock together, and after that peace
reigned for several weeks. Hut it was
Inevitable that another quarrel should
come und then another; Cherry was
young and Undisciplined, perhaps not
more selllsh than other girls of her
age, but self-centered and unreason
able. She had to learn self-control
and she tutted to control herself. She
had to economize when poverty pos
sessed nelHUT picturesqueness nor In
terest. They were always several
weeks behind In the payment of do
mestic bills, and these recurring re
minder? of money stringency mad
dened ('berry. Sometimes she summed
lt up, with angry tears, reminding him
that she was still wearing her trous
seau dresses, and had no maid, and
never went anywhere- !
Hut she developed steadily. As she
grew skilful In managing ber little
house, she also grew In the art of
managing her husband and herself.
She became clever at avoiding causes
of disagreement ; she listened, nodded,
agreed, with u hoi lim/ heart, and had
the satisfaction of having Martin's
viewpoint veer the next day, or the
nexl hour, lo meet her own secret
conviction. Martin seemed satisfied,
and ?ill their little world accepted her
as a matter nf course. Hut under lt
all cherry knew that something young
j and Irresponsible und eon ll dent in her
had bei n killed. She never llkinl to
think of the valley, of the fogs and the
Spokes of sunlight under the redwood
aisles, of Allx mid the dogs und the
dreamy evenings by the lire. And es
pecially she did not like to think of
that eighteenth birthday, and herself
thrilling und ecstatic because the
Strange young man from Mis. North's

The ZR-2, which was a sister ship '

lnnl test trip prior to being accepted
oy the United Slates navy and taken
icross the Atlantic by an American
zvow especially trained for that pur
pose. She was 606 feet long and was
built to carry a crew of 30. Her speed
was estimated at 70 miles an hour
The American navy was io pay Sii,

While flying at about 1,000 feet
over Hull spectators saw the ZR-2
seemingly huckle amidships and
plunge downward over the cit> and
into the Humber river. One theory
of the cause of the disaster is that
while the ship's rudders were being,
tested Hie giant craft took a sharp
turn, which caused her framework to
buckle, and that the explosion of a
gasoline tank completed the tragedy j
of tho air. "flie actual cause, how
ever, may never be known. A rumor
had been afloat for some days that,
the ZR-2 was structurally weak, but
this was stoutly denied by all in au

tho first circumstantial account of I
the disaster which late yesterday de-i
stroyed tho great dirigible and every j
American member of tho crew ont

Walker was seen at the Hawdon
airdrome, near Hull, where ho has

experience through which he passed
unscathed. He comes from Com

the ill-fated airship, ile is of boyish
appearance, 20 years old, and of wiry;

"We were all in the highest spirits'

"We were flying at a height of
about 3,50a feet, with the wireless
keeping touch with both Howden and
Pulham. Tho Bhip was behaving in
a magnificent manner, and there was
not a sign of weakness anywhere.
"We drove out over the sea again1
and as the fog continued bad we flew
along the coast until Wednesday af
ternoon, when we sighted land at
Hull. We then flew across to How

6.30 p. m., so we sailed over Hull j
again. We encircled Hull twice, and
the speod trial was completed with
out a hitch.
"A test of the ship's control then

was a tremendous crash. The gird

split in halves.
"Roth the tail and the nose im

"1 cannot begin to describe my
