The np express -we * due to pass at
1 o'clock, but lt did sot ctop. Graham
'would ?not bar? been in tho office at
?ll, only be had some money in ??ie safo
and hod received orders by wiro to
?sleep in the station that night
He lid not know hov/ much there
-was. lt had come in a sealed package,
Jocked In a small pouch. Ho knew lt
-was pny day on the new branch then
building on the 1st, and this was the
'.Why can't tb*/ 6end n pay car?"
.a sk od Giuliani ot L?mHelk'.
"Too confounded mean," be mattered.
The hours dragged slowly, but Gra
ham found some solace In thinking of
Miss. Delaine was from Chicago. She
TY.13 visiting the daugbter of Silas
Jones, whom she bad met at school.
Miss Jones was tal!, big and strong;
Miss Delaine wan dainty.
Miss Jones, with the advantage of ber
boarding school years, dressed "well;
Miss D.elflJnjo. dressed better.
Graham had suddenly i felt a peculiar
sensation when Miss Delaine got off
the local at Naomi He knew that Silas
was going to have company. Be bad
no idea the company was built more
on the fleeting vision plain than any
other. ?'M - .
*1f Blina don't feed that. girl, up be
Will be all out of company," Graham
bad said. "She^ almost gone, now.",
Graham was a husky fellow and bad
been ' at Naomi .two: months when Mles :
Delaine appeared. Aa Graham board
ed with Silas he hod an opportunity to
study ber welt
.?Ko more turkey bunts while she's
here,'! be grumbled to himself.
Miss Delaine took the grumble ont
of bira when abe proposed a shoot, and
tho three went to the scrubs, and Miss
Delaine brought down five to his three
?ind Miss-Jones one.
Miss Delaine proved to have more
get np. nnd get bi her diminutive body
than Graham acknowledged In Ids five
feet ten. She could box big Misa Jones
All over the barn floor; she could climb
?a cherry tree In a light summer frock
and como down os neat aa she went
np; she could swim better than Miss
Jones and divo as deep na Graham.
She could play the most charming
wal tees and sing the prettiest song3.
She had not been at Naomi' two w^eko
before abe waa singingr ta the choir,
and Graham made the harrowing dis
covery thai ho enes bass. '
So oh this hight Graham consoled
himself by thinking gloomy thoughts
about M?ss Delaine.
'Td bo a fool to aak>ber and a brot?
to espect ber to accept if I did ask."
-Why' bdnl??'rit^^ioefi i
Fen was Misa Jono3. . "But, no; eho-ll
marry Ilkina, and, if Miss Delaine
was poor Td maj^y her.'?
Ho know she was rich, Ebo bad of
ten spoken about "o,m* railroad.^ jarzws
Delaine waa president of the feand B.
Disconsolate,: ho smoked hts _
be long? ' \
He had rend last Ounday'a paper a
dosen timea 'and gens oS to sL^ep and
nearly fallen off the chair which ho had
tilted back. Be had left tho door open
for air. The night waa wann. ,
"Hello there, young felter?" carno a
voice. Ho turned toward the doo? and
rather than yielding. He suddenly !
darted toward his revolver, bnt tho
leader vas too quick. Ho bad been
expecting that. Tho revolver wea sim
ply a lure. He fired, and Graham fell
with a bullet In his side.
"Now, hang you, If yo;* want a show
for 70m* life give ns the combination."
Graham was gasping. He waa wait
ing for the next shot that would kill
j Suddenly there waa a sharp crack
tho sm ash I pg of gloss - another-and
another. Tho leader was dows, trtta a
bullet In his beert, shot through the
back. Jim lay writhing near the
Baie. Bill had pitched forward and
was grasping the sido for support.
Then an apparition appeared ot the
door. . .
A blt of a girl stood there, her face
white, a rifle in her hands. She was so
small she looked like a child. Graham
"You-yon, Mles Delaine-at half past.
Sbo calmly gazed at the result of her
lightning work. ? "
"To tell you the truth, I was afraid
and came hero to sleep. After you left"
-she was examining his wound while
she spoke-"Charley Jones came over on
horseback and said Mr. Jones' brother
was dying. I was out in the orchard,
and they could not find me and thought
probably I was with you. I returned
to the house and could not get in. X
bod left my key in the house. I man
aged to get a window open and went
in that way, bot I was afraid to go to
sleep, I could sit np without fear, be
cause I always feel safe with my rifle.
?But I was dead tired after the danes
last night; ,and I wanted t? sleep. I
thought I'd risk tho talk end come beroi
It was nearest. I beard tbs shot and
knew yon wera In trouble. I. ran and
got bore just In time. Can yon mn tho
sender?? . ;"v v*; . ?
% **I guess so," bo said feebly. ;
"Wiro to order that express to stop
nero," Sbo even? knew ibastations.,.
Graham dragged himself to tho table,
got his call and clicked off the mes
At 2 tho express came roaring end
rumbling in. " '
"What the mischiefs tho row berat"
bawled a heavy voice, and e powerful
man in a silk bat and black frock coat
stood with month agape while a frac
tion of what would make a fair siced
girl slid, unconscious, to the floor. ;
: "Nan, my girl, here?" said the big
mon. "Hero, tell Hawkins to como
here." Hawkins wes Mr. Delaine's pri
vate secretary end en operator?
"Hawkins, get Burns end stay here

Vouched (or by the lato Henry Smith,
who said he learned the fact through
being speaker of tho assembly, there ia
an interesting blt of history connected
with the old statehouse at Albany,
where it has stood for years, tho finest
example of pure Doric architecture in
thu; country, on the easterly side of Ea
gie street, between Pino and Steuben
streets, its wuli3 and partitions all of
solid stone, very much as if its halls,
roomB ond stairs bad bees carved out
within a hugo block of marble.
It was completed in 1842, costing tho j
state about ?330,000. It is built entirely [
of Slug Slug marble, quarried and cut
within tho prison walls.
The old capitol hoing inadequate to
accommodate tho increasing business
of tho state, this additional building
was planned and built and 1B still used
for the offices of tho state comptroller,
tho B tato engineer and surveyor and the
state banking department.
In a spirit of economy it was decided
to have aa much aa possible of the
work done by tho prisoners from the
material round within the prison walis
at Sing Bing,-fairly good'material, too,
but not the best, as it lo a soft marble^
as evidenced by the wear which now
shows so plainly tn the steps and by the
crumbling of some of the stones from
exposure to the weather. All the mate
rial was cut to completion within the
walls of the prisca under such plans
that when shipped to Albany there
wouK?. be no further work necessary
except practically to lay one stone up
on another, and so on until the whole
was assembled In the completed build
To accomplish this detailed plan a
system of marking the stones was nec
essary. The plans were carefully made
and a system of marking elaborately
laid out by the architect in charge, who
found in the prison nt Sing Sing a life
prisoner whose record showed him to
be an engineer of the highest ability
and who seemed as competent as any
man In the country to carry out the
work to be done In the prlcon, and nat
urally he was not unwilling to follow
his chosen profession in preference to
doing the manual labor of cutting or
quarrying stone. So, following tho
spirit of economy referred to above, the
plans In detail ?ind the system of mark
ing were turned over to bim and tho
whole work at that-end given over to
bis full superintendence end absolute
In due time the stones la their vari -
one shapes oed sises and In quantity
for the whole building were delivered

Ia reply to the question In what en
gagements ho considered himself to
have been in tho greatest danger of
losing hus Ufo Napoleon once said, "La
the commencement of my campaigns."
Indeed, If further proof were demanded
to show that he did not spare himself
at Toulon it ls only necessary to add
that during tho ten weeks of Ita siege
Napoleon, In addition to a bayonet
wound in his thigh, had three horses
shot under him, while at the Blego of
Acre during the expedition to Egypt ho
lost no fewer than four in the samo

During his long military career Napo
leon fought sixty battles, whilo Caesar
fought but fifty.. In tho early part of
his career ho was utterly reckless of
danger while on tho battlefield, and this
spirit of fearlessness contributed large
ly to tho love and esteem In which ho
was held by his armies. There was a
curious belief among the English in Na
poleon's time that he had never been
wounded, and indeed the report waa
current that he carefully If not In a
cowardly manner refrained from ex
posing himself. Nothing could be more
contrary to the truth, for he wee In re*
all ty several times severely wounded,
but as he wished to impress upon his
troops the belief that good fortune nev
er deserted hun and that, like Achilles,
he was well nigh Invulnerable, be al
ways made a secret of his many dan
gers. HG therefore enjoined once for
all upon the part of bis immediate staff
the most absolute silence regarding all
circumstances of thia nature, for lt la

I There is born with every one of us
