It waa only a fow minutes until train
-time, a nd.tho woman wno all tho morn
ing1; bad been wandering restlessly
?bout the house forced her reluctant
consciousness to the realization of the
/act that soon, very soon, Suzette
would be here.' Susette, after her four
years at an eastern college, .was com
ing home. And what was'she, Helena
Crosby, going to spy to th>* girl? It
' Tvas in answer to Helena's own urgent
appeal that the girl was coming-that
.and Sanford's letter. Despite tho
warmth of the sweet June day Helena
shivered. W aqt was she to say?
Sanford's letter spoke for itself. In
?clear, unmistakable terms it begged
Suzette to give up that long dreamed
, . . of year in Europo and como back and
marry him. His anxiously nwalted j
?promotion had arrived. Ile was at lust !
in a position to ask the fulfillment of
their boy and girl pledge. Helena
Imew well enough what the letter con
tained. Had she not practically dic
tated the substance of lt?
And Suzette's only answer had been
?. noncommittal telegram, "Starting for
Did abe mean to marry Robert or
did she not? That was the question
which over and over again rose fever
ishly to the ulster's mind. Since Su
sette was sixteen and Robert twenty
three, the two had been engaged; or,
irather, there had been an understand
ing between them. Then Suzette had
"sono to college and Robert had follow
-od bia regiment to tho Philippines.
Had the trouble riegan, then, won
dered Helena duily, when a triangular
?bain of correspondence .'.inked the
three? Or .was lt not until Sanford
bad come to Helena first to talk about
rthe absent Suzette, then to argue and
tease about her own concerns and, tast
ily, to discuss that never tiring topic of
conversation to a niau-himself ? Hel
>ena could not tell, but lightly, unthink
ingly, they bad drifted, along until all
?unwittingly a sudden shock laid baro
(the trut^h to lover and elster that a new
feeling, stronger, deeper, had taken the
[place of that childish fJYecflon.
Sanford, manlike, had wanted* to ad
an lt tho truth and face tho conse
tquences, but Helena, ber heart a fiery
(turmoil of conflicting emotions, would
. baot listen. She who, although only a
[year and a half the elder, bad been al
ways mother, nurse, every tiling to the
-.cherished little sister-abe to be the one
to destroy that slater's happiness,
break forever ber faith in humankind?
"Impossible!" cried Helena, ber gray
?yes dark with anguish, and from that
.determination she could not be shaken,
.despite Robert's most impassioned
pleadings, - ':
"I cannot burt Suzette," was her
unswerving answer, and at last Rob
bert, desperate, bad written Suzette.
Since the thing must be met let It be
met at once. Let them be married at
?nea and return to the Philippines. It
"was the only remedy either could see.

-cou? d see nothing fair or lovely in the'

In an hour. You-you are not nngry?"
"Married!" gasped Helena. For a
moment she remained quite still, seek
ing to absorb,' to realize, the wonderful
"Yes," said Suzette meekly.
"And-and you are happy?" her first
thought, us ever, for Suzette.
"Yes," said Suzette, a sparkle of
laughter breaking forth.
^"Robert I leave to you," said Su
zette. "You must explain"
But Helena, comprehending at last,
sprang toward the telephone. Aa she
watched, the girl's face changed, a now
and wholly, sweet expression crept
across the mobile features, r? ?aling
"And did you two think that I could
not understand?" She breathed, a ten
der renunciation shadowing the blue
eyes. "Did you think I could not
guess the truth? Oh, sister, my dear
est sister, I leave Robert-to you."
HI? Substitution, -
"My son ls taking algebra "under you
this term, ls he not?" remarked the
fond father to the new Boston High
"Well," answered the pedagogue,
"your son has been ''exposed' to alge
bra, but I doubt If he will take lt."
The case of, the youth was not hope
less,, for most Institutions now permit
substitutions. A writer in the Boston
Transcript recalls a youth who had not
studied astronomy, - but bad' taken
Greek history. A substitution was
granted. He bad not studied trigonom
etry, but be had received outside in
struction. In practical electricity. The
substitution was alto accepted.
"But," said the principal, "you do
not seem to have taken moral philoso
phy, or anything I.could regard as an
equivalent. How about lt?"
"That came, you remember, in tho
spring term, when I was out of school
ox account of having the typhoid fever,
and I did not know but that you would
let me make the substitution.'*
The effect of typhoid fever is excel
lent on the system, but the principal
could' not see its moral educational
value. . ? .

It belonged to Colonel Dennis O'Kelly
and was famed for Its whistling of the
Ono Hundred and Fourth Psalm. When
the coloneb died In 1787 a large propor

tleman's Magazine was devoted to this
remarkable bird, which got another
considerable notice of its own when lt
died fifteen years later In Half Moon
street PlccadUly. This parrot could
also whistle "God Save the King" and
"The Banks of the Dee" and would go
back and coi1 re ct itself If lt got a note

The Trace ol God.
One of the moat curious of tho many
?peer moulue vu 1 customs was that
known as "tho truce of God." From
what wo have been able to learn of it
the custom appears to ba ;e originated
as au outgrowth of a desl/o to protect
tho common people to some extent at
least against'the lawless. tyranny of
tue feudal lords of tho middle a>;ea.. It
was first decreed at'.a church synod
which convened at I lou ssl lion In tho
year 3027. By this decree It was pro
vided that no man should attack bia
enemy between Saturday evening at
nones and Monday morning at the
hour of prime. About the year 1032 a
similar compact wus entered Into be
tweon tho church and tho barons of
England. Tho church forbade barons
to make any attack upon each other
between sunset on Wednesday night
and sunrise dh'the following Monday
or upon'oliy feast or fast day. "The
same truce made provision that -no
man should be 'disturbed while labor

the bill was under consideration a ban.
quet was held at St. Joseph. It waa

of the town. After they had filled up

which flag should float from the city

decided on, and in ibo morning tho

and tho stars and bars hoisted. The

In the first years of navigation on
western waters, says the author of
"Early Steamboat Navigation on the
Missouri Uiver," pilots were forced to
use all sorts of signals and marks to
decide their courses. One had a cus
tom of running a certain crossing If he
carno to It at night by the aid of a
dog. Tho animal belonged to a family
living In a house at the foot of the
crossing directly in tho course of the
bend. Whenever a boat was coming
this dog ran out to the bank, always
In exactly the same place, which was
In line with the channel, and barked
his loudest. The pilot ran toward tho
J sound of the barking with the utmost
confidence. Unhappily the dog one
night took a notion to chango his stand
and barked a little higher up. Tho
next morning the boat was a hopeless
wreck on a sand bar, Into which the
pilot had run at full speed.
