ink of that kind is a great curiosity
to persons who have nover boforo
seen it, but a greutcr curiosity still
is an ink that nitty be quickly made
to disappear by rubbing it. To make
this lluid get a Jit t lo starch (just
the common kind used by the laun

But the girl had drawn near the door.

Indifferent voice. "I I think I used to
know him in Paris."
"Did you, now?" The old man shook
his head. " 'T is very sick I fear he is,"
ho answered soberly. "I'm thinking
that if no one comes to nurse him it's
to the hospital he will be going. We've

"Well, I wish she'd come, then," the
sigh returning. "I'd have a job for
her. But good night again, miss," rec
ollecting himself with a start. "Here I
am gossiping away when I .should bo
doing my work. And don't trouUlo
your head about Mr. Lawrence. He'll
most likely pull through." And with a
final clatter of the poker he was goue.
But It Is very easy to tell a person
not to trouble. To follow such an in

to the nickering log woro a changed
expression. Hob Lawrence upstairs

which leaped to her mind as tho old

by tho consoling reminder that they
need not theroforo necessarily meet.
And then, with a shock, tlio unexpect

aud calling for another girl!
Yot why should she care? She did
not, she told herself, with a quick toss
of the head. Slio had takeu that chance
when sho sout hint uway. Ho had been
hers llrst, hers utterly. A sudden vi
sion of those old Purls days rose before
her inlud when Hob hud begged her to
marry bliu and come home, und she,
trying her wings and rejoicing In their
Hlreugth, had only laughed, Glvo up
her work and go home? How could
he ask It?
But he hud asked It and then gono

culling for nnSther girl, Her mind re
verted constantly to that thought.
Naturally sho had told hltn to forgot
her, but equally naturally, with the
Hue self conlldenco of her box, she had
never believed thnt ho would. Ito
luctantly the truth now forced Itself
upou her consciousness that In all her

Perhaps it would be unfair to accuse
Pat of "snooping." Nothing might
have been further from his thoughts;
but, be the truth as It may, the Indis
putable fact Is that, when a few min
utes later tho door of Miss Vandervler's
studio opened and a slender llgure tin

the dark hall, uttered u smothered
In breathless Interest he waited.
Then came to him a light knock, a low
exclamation and then a feeble yet
thrilling joyful cry, "Miriam, oil, Mir

a long, satlslled sigh.
"Miriam, is It?" lie muttered. "Mir

his knowledge of woman. "Maybe I'm

The Ark Horn Sinn.
Hundreds of the ancient gleaners of
miscellaneous curios, legouds, myths
and traditions give us to understand
that Cush was born on tho ark. Others
claim that there wns a child born on
tho sacred vessel, but thnt It was bac
rlUced to one of the wild beasts, Noah
declaring that no person should leave
the ark who had not go no on board in
the regulation manner. The weight of
the evidence us it Is given by the Tal
mudlc writers Is to the effect that Cush
Is the person referred to by the old
time mystery gleaners when they
speak of the "ark born" man. The sa
cred books as well as the scores of
Biblical encyclopedias, handbooks of
ancient history, etc., are silent on tho
subject Iu the "Saxon Chronicles" the
following occurs: "Bedwig was the son
