The name fe tar tied the young lady' -
g0 iuuch that her nel? possession al
most failed her. She bowed in rec
ognition of the introduction, and
then turned her attention to the
two children who.yere to, he under
her charg?. 1 :;
During,the morning meal she
cast several furtive glances at
Brice Rutherford.' Ho was young,
handsome, refined, "with perhaps
rather'ah exalted opinion of him
It waB not remarkable that, dur
ing the summer he began to take
considerable interest in the pretty
little governess. He was thrown al
most daily in her society, an$ her
frankness was especially charming
to him because he was not mach
disposed to be frank hjmsehfc
His interest at last assumed a
more fervent shape and finally led
him to make a dede ration of love.
A look of triumph crossed her face,
but it escaped his notice,.., for she
was seated m the shadow.
"This isn't unexpected," she re
plied, "but"- . . ' 1
Brice Rutherford frowned at the
remark and waited for her to con

"Oh, to be sure," replied she.
"Well, I om glad that we under

Interrupted she in turn. ."I know

"That isn't fax off, you know*
"WelL no. it assented hs,
and that closed the conversation. .
In the early part ot September
business took him into me city
and he was absent a week. When f
he returned to his aunt's country
seat, he found that the pretty little
governess was no longer there. He
was almost dumfounaed.
"I don't know,?- replied Mrs.
Camerori "Amone; fJaer ?wenda, BA?

"She io ' coming back?"
"No, much to my regret,and the
disappointment of the children."
Brice Rutherford stared ak the
carpet. . .
'Did aho leave a message for
me?" he asked. <
"A letter* at least," replied Mrs.
Cameron. "I notice that there is
ene on her bureau directed to you."
He hurried upstairs in a manner
not in keeping Jwitfc his habitual
dignity. When ho opened tho en- ,
velope, he was surprised to find one
of his own letters in it, although
he had never written to her. A
look of consternation spread over
his face as he read it.
In Ins boyhood he had had a little
sweetheart named Boso Balaton. It
was stipulated between the parents
of both that the two should be mar
ried when ?they were old enough.
He was sent to school on th? con

Ihad attained his majority. He then

-'\WHy, no, Brice. It came about

''You are sure of that?" ,
"Of course I am. What does ehe
say in the letter?"
"It isn't from her."
"Eh! Who, then?"
"Why did she masquerade here
under another name?" evaded Brice.
"Why should she masquerade any
where?" . : .
- "MY dear boy, I can't answer
that,'* Mrs. Cameron said. "I am
not convinced that she did."

anyhow," Rutherford rejoined,
which was a bold false VM, for he
knew that it mattered a good deal
1 A year later found Kate Conover
standing in a grove in the Yellow
stone park. She was looking' down
a long vista of charming scenery,
her face bronzed, her form plump
and the blue in her eyes deeper and
sweeter than ever,
i She heard footsteps behind her,
and on turning around beheld a
handsome, sun browned tourist. A
second, and her face grew Tory red,
for the man was Brice Rutherford.
She had punished, him, to, be sure,
but she had also punished herself.
He. relieved her of her embar
rassment by offering his hand with
'Xii now take your answer," he
"What answer ?" she asked* with
"This is September," he re
minded. - i
"Oh!" ejaculated she. "So it is,
but I named last September. I left
you my answer."
"But there wasn't scything in it
for me, or else I was too stupid t4
see it. It may h?ve implied"
"Yea, it implied," she interrupted,
with a charming little laugh. .
"Oh, bother that idiotic letter!"
"And your stumpy, romping,
freckled faced tomboy sweetheart,
BOBO Ralston;" added she, quoting
from the letter;
"I meant nothing by it, and I'm
sorry I wrote it," replied Brice, get
ting red in the face in tura. "I
could not foresee that I'd after
ward nieet Bose Ralston in Kate
Conover and fall in love with her.

should not be punctilious about as

Brice, laughing. "One such effort

expended on that occasion. You in

NEGROES WITH A BROGUE,
CurlOUS Linguistic Phenomenon in
Weat Indian IsJand.
The islands of Martinique, St.
Tincent, Barbados, Montserrat, St
Lucia and Guadeloupe, besides af
fording an iUiroitablo field for the
study of seismology, constitute in
themselves one of the greatest eth
nological curiosity shops in the
world, so that he who visits these
islands may stand prepared for a
surprise at every turn. One of the
strangest ethnological freaks is to
be found on the island of Montser
rat. This island is one of the oldest'
British colonies in America and was
first settled by Irish emigrants from
Connaught. Subsequently negro
slaves were introduced in the island,
whose descendants form the bulk of
its present nopulatio.1, for here as
elsewhere in the Antilles the white
mau seems to have died out and
disappeared, leaving the negro in
undisputed possession of the soil.
The negro slaves imported from
Africa in 1648 learned the English
language from tho Irish settlers and
Slnnters, and in consequence they
o this day speak the Irish brogue
with the same breadth of accent as
-thc people of Kerry or Donegal.
An amusing and true story is re
lated of an Irish saddler who some
few years ago engaged to an English
firm having large sugar planta
i tions in Montserrat to go to that
island ^ in its employ. The ship
on which he made "the voyage hav
ing reached the roadstead of the
'capital of the colony, a number of
negroes swarmed about the ship in
their lighters soliciting carrying
One of them addressed the Irish
saddler in his native Connaught
brogue. The latter in surprise
asked,; "Thunder and turf, how
long hov yez been here?" The negro,
thinking he meant the length of
time he had been living !n that par
ticular part' of the island, replied,
"Three months." "Three months ?"
exclaimed the Irishman. "Three
months, and so black already? Be
the powers Oi'll not ?thay among
yez anither dayl" The Irishman, in
spite of all explanation and persua
sion, returned to Ireland, declaring
that $1,000 peu day would not
suffice to induce him to remain in a
country where the sun's rays wero

The First Pire Extinguishers.
The earliest mention of fire ex
tinguishing apparatus of any kind
is found in the building accounts
of the city of Augsburg, Germany,
for the year 1518. In these they
are denominated "instrumenta for
j fires" and "water syringes useful at
lires." .Anthony Blatner, a gold
smith at Friedberg, is credited with
being the inventor and manufae
i turor, he having at that time be
come a citizen of Augsburg.
These syringes must have been
of considerable size, as they are de
scribed as being mounted on wheels
. ent? worked by levers. Caspar
Uchott, a noted Jesuit, gives an ac
A&uni of one built at Nurembe~3 in
1657, the largest squirting f ?.'ne
of which there is any record. It
was mounted on a sledge 10 feet
long, 4 feet in width and drawn
by two horses. It had twp work
ing cylinders placed horizontally in
the cistern, which was 8 feet long. 4
feet high and 8 feet wide. Twenty
eight men were required to work ft.
and it was capab?e ox throwing o
jet of water one inch in diameter to
a height of eighty feet.
* The Teeth.
Tc keep the teeth perfectly clean
brush thoroughly night and morn
ing, using a pure dentifrice, and
rinse the mouth after every meal
with an antiseptic lotion, also using
the quill toothpick to remove par
ticles of food. The brush should be
used up and down on the teeth, as
this allows the bristles to pass be
tween the teeth, and it is also less
likely to .injure the gums. The in
side pl1 the teeth should receive
the same-treatment as the outside,
and the contact surface of the mo
lars should be thoroughly scrubbed.
Never pick the teeth with any metal
implement; do not crack nuts with
them or bite threads. Extremes of
temperature in food or drink should
be avoided. Hot soup should not
be followed by iced water or ice
cream by hot coffee.
?nroughty Pronounced Darby.
Pronunciation of English proper
names is a marvel of inconsistency,
but/there is an American family,
Virginian, that outstrips such Eng
lish vagaries as Cholmondeley, pro

Soiled Enroughty and pronounced

Darby was loft a fortune upon the
condition that he change his name

Guano ls Growing Scarce
. The supply of one fertiliser upon
whioh the world has loug drawn for
the enrichment of the soil is nearly
exhausted. Now and then some islet
of the Paoifio whioh has remained un
dil oovorod or neglected till a late day
is found to be rich in guano though
most of the guano islands have been
despoiled of all their natural wealth.
Nameless Island (it has a native name
by the way) is ono of the guano islan >B
whose deposits were not disoovercd
till within the last few years.
This uninhabited rook, upon whioh
no one thought it worth while to land
until recently, now presents a busy
scene. A wharf has been built out
into the sea for the accommodation of
the Australian guano schooners that
bring supplies to tho force of miners
who are digging up the deposits and
loading them on vessels bound for
Sydney. In the course of a few years
everything worth taking away from
Nameless Island will have been re
moved and then it will be deserted
The same history is likely to be re
peated at the little island, a few hun
dred miles from Japan, whose claims
to the rich guano deposits found there
have just been recognised by our gov
ernment. Japan is a great consumer
of fertilisers. Thousands of tons of
fish are buried every year around the
roots of the tea shrubs, Japan uot yet
having learned the lesson we are teach
ing that it is worth while to build
faotories to convert menhaden and
fish refuse into fertilizers.
AH the guano found on this island
will be taken to Japan and then the
I Bouroe of supply will be abandoned,
like scores of other Paoifio islands
whioh onee yielded large quantities of
Until a few years ago many of these
islets were marked on the very best
maps as belonging to the United
States. We had not claimed sover
eignty over them, and there was no
reason why they should he mapped as
belonging to us except that our
sohooners alone were engaged in car
rying away the only riohes they seem
ed to possess. Nearly all of them are
now in the domain of England and
Germany, but it is doubtful if they
ever will be utilized in any way. The
very rec son why large stores of valua
ble fertiliser accumulated there unfit
ted them for haman ocoupanoy.
Soaroely a drop of rain every falls on
them. Their aridity, conserved the
commercial value of their deep de
posits of guano, but the same phe
nomenon makes them undesirable for
other human enterprises.
The imports of guano into our ooon
try and Europe have now nearly
ceased, owing to the exhaustion of the
sources of supply. About the middle
of the last century, when no fertilizers
were sold west of Pennsylvania, we
were importing about 60,000 tons of
guano a year, five-eights of the supply
ooaing from the guano islands along
the coast of Peru. At that time all
the. imports were received at Balti
more and bore the inspection brand of
the guano inspector there. Those
years for about three decades were the
palmiest days of guano digging along
the Peruvian coast.
The islands of this very arid region
were covered with the excrement and
remains of seabirds that during many
centuries had accumulated to a great
depth. The agricultural value of this
fertiliser was well-known to the an
cient Peruvian*, whose laws forbade
the killing or molestation of the
birds; thus modern farming has been
indebted to these civilized aborigines
of centuries ago for a great deal of
the fertiliser that has enriohed the
fields of this oountry and Europe.
Bat the Peruvian islands have now
been practically swept clean of their
gnanp deposits. Our imports of over
50,0v? tons of guano a year have drop
ped to less than 5,000 tons; and most
of this is not pure guano, but phos
phate rook, whioh requires chemical
treatment before it can be utilized.
Most of the guano now imported comes
from Navassa, Sombrero and other
places where there is considerable
rainfall. T o rain leaches the soluble
salts from the guano and the underly
ing rock becomes altered to a consid
erable depth. This limestone, thus
altered by the salts from the guano, is
what is mined at Navassa and else
where. It is usually called bone
phosphate of lime and is the form io
whioh four-fifths of the guano still
utilized is received.
The latest reports from the great
nitrate fields of Chile is that the yield
is decreasing in some of the most pro
ductive mines and that new ground is
beginning to bo worked. The farmers
of northwestern Europe are still buy
ing more than a million tons a year of
this very valuable fertilizer, and per
haps the supply will be equal to the
demand for many years to come. It
is a significant fact, however, that the
miners who are working by thousands
to supply the demand are beginning
togo further afield and .are opening
deposits thus far untouched because
they are not so conveniently situated
for shipping nitrate as the mines al
ready developed.-Now York Sun.
