In the flr-t in.tance he was not in fault.
In the course of a perfectly natural con
verlatiol lie had learned that every night
she walked home by the bridge. No one
was In town. It was too hot for the pit
of any theater, atIl it was impossible to
read at hoate. 'I'lere is no pleasanter
place In London for a stroll than St.
James' park, and the view from t he bridge
at night recalls the calmnet reachos of the
Isis. She had never is-en on the Thames
and longed for anopportrunity. He pitied
her and gave himself a treat.
He called her Jeannie, for he ever
knew her surname. It was not her wont
to talk about herself, and he rather pro
terred not to learn the details of her par
entage. She had never nsentioned her oc
oupation, but hoe simple tastefulness of
her dress and the eas.e with which it fitted
her psetty figure left little room for doubt
upon this head. dShe had told him her
birthday once. and hle had not forgotten
It. And when she timidly asked him to
enhaace the value of the locket by giving
her a lock of his hair-the wigsat so light
ly on his brow that the luxuriant growth
of his dark tresses was srtll nnimpaired
he could not hurt her feelings by refusing.
Tiue end of the vacation had come at
last. Mlcn were hank as chambers, and
the friends with whomr one dines were
dally returning to town. Besides the
weather was becoming decidedly unsuited
for evening promenades. But, aswe have
said, he did not feel quite comfortable
about the situation. It would be no doubt
the easiest thing in the world to drift
away from this benevolent flirtation, just
as he had drifted into it, but he did not
like to behave unkindly. If she had grown
too fund of him, it eas not his fault,
though possibly a natural result of their
relations. It might have been better If
the incident had never occurred, but itwas
clear that at its present stage he could not,
without meannes, iring the acquaintance

The premonitiry symptoms of Insola

times l days before the attack proper takes
place. Th'lhese symptoms are often restless

nalsea and Ithirst.
The attack is more likely to occur on
the second or third day of a heated term

is more apt to take place between 11

The first preventive is simple. On a hot
day wear thin clothing. While In the sun
wear a light colored hat, straw being pref.

a damp cloth or a large green leaf. The
cloth should he kept wet. One of the best
preventives is to see that one's skin is

perate drinking of water will generally
keep it up. A thin umbrella or otherlight
covering over the head will lessen the dan
ger of being overcome. If fatigued, stop

In cases of mere prostration the treat

stlmulants may be beneficial. If the skin
is hot and dry, the sufferer should be

THE AGREEABLE GUEST.
lo.e of the Many TrilOe of Good Breedlag
Which She Observes.
If one is invited to a friend's house, the
Arnt thing in order, according to Harpe's
Bazar, is to decide whether or not she can
go. If, on consideration, it seems that the
Invitation can be accepted, It should on
no account be lightly thrown over in favor
of some later suggestion. The invitation
having been accepted, it is well to let the
length of the contemplated visit be def
initely prescrlbed. Both hostess and guest
will proceed more intelligently and more
comfortably if this be understood.
Th' agreeable guest will arrive as
promptly as possIble on the day and by
the train which has been selected for her.
She will send her luggage to the house she
is going to by the express agent who passes
through cars and lbots unless she is aware
that her friend will have a carriage in
waiting. City and country terminal facil
ities differing, no hard and fast rule can
be laid down about luggage.
Informed of the family routine,the guest
is never tardy. She does not irritate the
punctual man of the house by keeping the
breakfast back, nor is she so early that the
hostess, coming down five minutes before
the morning nmal, feels like a culprit on
hearing the visitor's cheerful announce
ment that she has been down a half hour.
The agreeable guest takes an interest in
and praises the children of the house. She
likes to hear their pretty recitations, their
"pieces" on the pilnoorviolin. She some
times tells them stories or sings for them.
The servants like her, for her courtesy is
unvarying and does not overlook their ef
forts in her behalf, which she recognlzes
by thanks and on herdeparture hya graeO
ful gift or a tip. If there are few servants
or none, the guest takes care to wait on
herself and to lighten by little acts of as
sbtance the burden of car which he
friend is carrying.
She has a nice sense of honor and of
elicary. The latter makes her deaf and
ind to any small friction or occasional
y argument which may go a In he
ce. The former seals her lips far all
ime from reveallrg anything disagreeabl
which may come to her knowledge while
under a friend's roof.

Hyland T was bred near Eagle Rook,

by Ilverson, a son of Lexington. He was
branded like any other broncho and used
as a cow pony until 1890, when he was
entered in slow trotting classes and took
a record of 2:301!. In 1801 he won twoout
of seven races and secured a mark of
2:17X'. In 1892 he lowered his record to
2:111 1, but was so unreliable that barrels
of money were lost on him. The Stewarts
of Kansas City bought him for $1,150 and
partially cured him of his eccentricity,
and last year he won $7,000. All in all
Ryland T is a unique equine character.

A H.it em Fruit Preserving.
A very good authority on fruit preserv
lug considers that the plan followed by
many housekeepers of using a small pro
portion of sugar and in consequence boil
ing the preserve longer is a fallacy, as the
more sugar used the greater the bulk of
the preserve obtained, less being wasted
In long boiling and evaporation, while the
flavor of the fruit is more retained. A
quick fire should be used, and of course
the ,reserve continually stirred, the skum
bring tnaken off as it rises. To judge if the
preserve has boiled long enough drop a lit
tle into a glass of cold water. If it does not
spread or mix, It is done enough. Or an
other way is to drop a little on a plate. If
It does not run on the plate, it Is suicient
ly boiled and should St once Il poured.
Remove the skins by scalding, putting
at once into cold water. To each pound of
fruit allow three-quarters of a pound of
sugar and two-thirds of a eup of water.
Make a sirup of the water and sugar and
let it come to boiling point. Skim, put in
the peaches and cook until they amre clear.
As fast as they cook or become clear take
out with a skimmer. When all are re
moved ftom the siarup, put in cans, add
to the sirlp half cup of the best brandy
for every p~ound of fruit and fill the cans
at once. 'reestone peaches are the best.
For po8utds of fruit take 4 pounds of
sugar, a quart of vinegar, an ounce of cln
namon and one of cloves; scald the vinegar,
sugarand spices together; skim, pourscald

Almee Thomas Maguire of San Francieco
engaged her to take a leading position in
his stock company at the Baldwin theater,
where Daniel E. Bandmann, playing a
starring engagement at the time, was s
impressed with her great talent that he
offered her the leading position in his sup
port and an opportunity to travel with
him in his famous tour around the world,
which was repeated three times. During
these tours Miss Beaudet played a wde
range of tragic and emotional roles, de
veloping unexpected dramatio power.
Her advent Into comb opera occurnd
with the production of "Paola" at the
Fifth Avenue theater, oew York, in the
spring of 10889. Her success led her to com

operatic experience developed In her the
hitherto unsuspected quality which the
French term 'chio." Slnce then she has
appeared In leading parts with numerca
co.dm opera stars, but the present oppr
