I A SINGULAR
CUSTOM
And Hon It Was illustrated
by a Russian Countess
By LOUISE B. CUMM1NGS I
A bull was In progress In the Winter
palace nt St. Petersburg. There were
few persons In the resplendent throng
who were not titled, and In Itussla
even d prince cannot bold his position
In the court circle without complying
with a number of requirements
Among the few at the ball without the
prefix to the name of count, baron,
duke or even general, without gold
lace or a string of decorations on the
breast, but in plain black evening
dress, was Adelbert Wyman, an at
tache to the American legation.
If Wyman was bereft of artificial
plumage nature had endowed him with
an attractive personality. He was
finely built, being tall and proportioned
for an athlete, while his .countenance
bespoke a manly spirit within. Hav
ing Inherited a fortune and work not
being a necessity with blm, be bad
adopted a profession in which money
making had no part and which to blm
seemed full of intei est diplomacy.
Wyman had prepared himself for
his career by the study of International
law and more especially of several for
eign languages, Russian among the
number. He was therefore enabled to
chat In' her native tongue with a young
Russian girl, with whom be danced
several times nt this Imperial ball. The
Countess Olgn Ivanovna was one of
those women of the north whose com
plexions are fair, whose eyes are blue
and t whose hulr Is flaxen. Notwith
standing the fact that she was noble
and her companion was a commoner,
she seemed to be pleased with him
Indeed, there wits something unique tn
that unadorned figure among hundreds
of men most of whom relied for ud
miration on their velvet clothes, tinsel
and the medals strung on their breasts.
Some of .them were misshapen, some
had homely faces, and all were dress
ed as If for n play. Wyman alone w.is
unadorned.
"Ilow do you IlUe Itussla?" asked the
countess. All vlsltots are asked this
question and If they ure well bred
usually reply that they like the coun
try they visit very much. Wyraan's
reply was that the country Interested
him. When iisked why, he said that It
waB In the marked dlffeieuce to what
be had been accustomed
"In what wa.vV" asked the girl.
"First, with j on HuhsImus everything
points from the people to the govern
ment, while with us everything points
from the government to the people In
other wotds, lieie the people seem to
be for the government, wliili with us
our government Is for the people. Nut
It Is the many singular customs In
the dlffeient pans of your great em
plre that especially Interest me. the
pronounced varied types of your peo
pie I have read that In a certain
provlnie dowi,les ps are rallied foi
as wives the inonev paid in for chances
being given lor a marriage poitlon."
"Theie Is a more singular custom
than that." added the countess. "In
a certaiu pan of Itussla the girls pro
pose to the men If a girl wants to
marry n m.iu she goes to his bouse If
he refuses to marry her be Is regal d
ed as insulting her and her family, ami
tbey take revenge upon blm."
"The privilege of proposing mar
riage," said Wyman, "accorded to the
man Is a mere custom For my part 1
see no reason why a woman should not
be ns free to ask a man to marry her
as that a man Is free to ask her to be
his wife."
"Do you really mean that?" asked
the couutess, looking up at Wyman
archly.
"1 certainly do But you must not
take me in that respect as representing
my countiymen 1 Jlke to think for
myself and am not n slave to cus
toms '
The two parted at this point, but Just
before the ball closed they met again
"We go next week to our home In the
province of Vlatka," she said. "If you
wlf make us a visit there I think 1
can show j on some more of our odd
customs. The people about us have
Borne very singular ones "
"I assme ,vou I feel highly honored
by the Invitation and xliull nccept It
with much pleasiiie '
In time Wvmau lecelved a formal in
vltatlou to Islt Count Ivan Ivan
ovua's estates in VlntUa A time was
set for his toiulng. hut none for his
departure This Hiirpilscd him. for It
is usual iiuioiiu most eutei miners In
high life all ovei the world to Invite
their guests Tor n definite period The
American was coidlally received by
tbe young lady'x fnuiil.t and a suit of
rooms plated at hN disposal Ue had
not before met any of them except
Olga. and he seemed to be considered
her espeelal guest At any rate, she
took upon herself his entertainment,
driving blm about herself, showing blm
tbe people, how thej lived, bow they
worked and how tbey reared their chll
' dreu Wyman was much Interested In
It all and more especially lu tbe Igno
rance of not only tbe children, but of
their parents
"But you have not shown me," said
Wyman one day when they were out
together, "any or those singular cus
toms you spoke of when in St. Peters
burg." "Vou must be patient," was the re
ply. "You Americans are always in
' baste. If you arc to bo n diplomat you
must get rid of that American trait."
A couple of weeks passed. Olga
Ivanovna showed no disposition to part
with her visitor, nor did ho care espe
cially to return to the city. Tlieio were
no Intricate questions between tho
United States and Itussla to render his
attendance on his chief uecossary, and
bo was not recalled. He occupied his
time during the day In studying the
Russian people under the guidance of
bis fair hostess, and the evenings did
not seem long miougb. since be In-
I variably spent them In her company. '
I If Wyman thought of what might
come of this association it certainly
did not occur to hlui that a family
whose nobility might be traced back
for centuries, which was In high favor
with the czar, would consent to admit
a commoner like himself Into Its charm
ed circle by giving him one of Its mem
bers to wife. Nor did be suspect that
Olga Ivanovna would stoop to ally her
self with him. He was happy, and he
was young, and young persons are not
irlven to looking to a point where their
tinpplness may come to an end.
One evening Olga showed a well de
fined symptom that the little god had
claimed her as one of'its victims. He
parting with tho American was accord
panied by an Intensity of feeling not
before definitely displayed. Wyman
went to his rooms wondering. Could
it be that, yielding to love, this high
born beauty, would surrender to nn un
titled man from tbe other side of the
globe?
The next morning Olga told her guest
that there was to be a singular cere
mony In tbe line of, what she bad
promised him. He was delighted.
Olga would take part in it. Would he
like to do the same? Certainly. What
was it like? There would be racing.
She would be dressed In running cos
tume. If he Intended to take part he
would better dress for the s.ime pur
pose. Capitiil! He bad been a spilnler
in school and afterward lu college. He
had sevein I cups at home he had won
on the cinder path
An hour later Olga appeared attired
In a dress the skht of which came
only to the kliees Wyman had no
splinting costume with him. so he ap
peared simply in a pair of white flan
nel trousers and shirt. Thus arra.ved.
the two sprang into a phaeton which
stood at the door, and Olga drove to
n field on which was a crowd of peo
ple. At one end of the open space was
a tent Olg.i dr,ove to a point near
the canvas, and both sbe and her
guest alighted. Olga went Into the
tent for a few moments, where she
divested herself of her Jacket and
came out leady for a run.
Wyman saw no one else prepared
for racing nnd noticed that he and
Olga seemed to be tbe center of at
traction. While he was wondering
what It all meant. Olga. who had
walked a short distance from blm,
turned, beckoued to him and then
darted nwnv over tbe field.
Wyman ran after her There was
the same excitement, the same cheers,
the same shouts, as when he bad won
cups In Anieil.-a He was surprised to
see that Olga was running very swift
ly. Gallantly at first caused him to
moderate his pace, but It was not long
before he realized that If he was to
catch her he must do his best
The space to be traveled was 21)0
yards, and to win Wyman must catch
the fugitive befoie reaching a goal at
tbe other end of the field. He was at
first so dilatory that when Olga had
made half the distance it seemed he
would loe And so he would have
lost had not Olga In the next quarter
slowed her pace Within a hundred
yards of the goal she ran so slowly
- that Wyman had no difficulty In catch
ing her. He put his band on her
shoulder, and she fell back Into his
, arms amid a vociferous approval of
tbe onlookers
Having recovered her breath, she
slipped her nrm through his, and they
walked back together to the starting
point Out of the tent came a priest
and advanced toward them. Olga rais
ed her band In protest.
"No. no. father. This Is not a real
wedding. This gentleman wished to
see some of our customs, and 1
thought I had best show blm one of
our wedding ceremonies and arrange
that be should he a part of It. hut your
services will not he required."
Wyman stood looking at the speak
er woiiderlngly. The excitement of the
chase was upon him. Moreover, a de
lightful suspicion flashed In his mind
that there was something more in this
ceremony than to show blm a custom
.of the countrj
As for the crowd. It showed signs
of dissent. There were cries of "A
wedilng. a wedding!" But the count
ess, who was much beloved by the
people, stilled them.
"For my. part." said Wyman. looking
at Olga with eyes that expressed far
, more than his vvordH Implied. "1 think
the people are light We should uot
disappoint them."
At this the cries were renewed, and
this time Olga found It impossible to
still them. She gave Wyman a ques
tioning look, tbei dropped her eyes.
Wyman struck while the Iron was hot
and signaled to the priest to advance
and perform the ceremony Olga yield
ed, and the two, having been made one.
were escorted to tbe bride's borne by
a sluglng. shouting populace
Wyman returned to the embassy at
St. Petersburg, and It was announced
to the worli that the secretary of the
American legation and the- Countess
Olga Ivanovna were betrothed. Not
long afterward they were married la
presence of tbe Imperial family, and
there were few persons at the" capital
who knew that tfils was a supplemen
tary ceremony.
I Wyoian's life has been spent mostly
abronrj. but a portion of It be has lived
in Amerlcu wtth his Russian wife.
Making an
Acquaintance
Br EVERETT P. CLARKE
One day on leaving my bank after
making a deposit I saw a lady at the
next window tbe paying teller's try
ing to count a fat roll of bills The
lady was young and pretty -Indeed. I
was very much struck with her ap
pearance. I thought of Offering my
services to count tbe bills for her, but
this would put her on guard against
mo as desiring lo play a confidence
game and get ber money.
Finally she gave up the attempt and,
rolling the bills Into a wad, stuffed
tbem Into a portemonnale and left the
bank. 1 went out at another dooi,
balled a street car, got aboard; a lady
got In behind me and sat down oppo
lto me. She was tbe one I bad seen
In tho bank. She was carrying her,
portemonnale In her band, Invitlug. so
It seemed to me, some thief to snatcb
it No one taking advantage of the
offer, she laid it on the seat beside ber
and proceeded to put on her gloves,
which she bad removed to count tbe
money. Tbe portemonnale lay on tbe
smooth surface of the seat ready to be
shaken out of sight or Into some thief
possession, but tbe lady didn't appear
to worry about It seeming far more
afraid of tearing ber gloves, which
could not have cost over $2, than of
losing a fat roll of bills
There Is nothing that will touch tbe
heart like stupidity. And it seemed to
me that there was quite Vuougb stu
pidity in this beautiful creature ber
eyes were great soft brown ones and
ber hair was a shining'1 chestnut to
make me love ber forever. 1 watched
her and her poeketbook till I saw it
slide into the crack between the seat
and its back, disappearing behind the
folds of her dress
The car Jogged on, most of the pas
sengers gradually getting out I was
carried far beyond my destination, but
tf 1 had been Intent on possessing my
self of the lady's poeketbook 1 could
not have been more absorbed in tbe
situaUon. In fact 1 did have designs
on that poeketbook, but for a purpose
different from that of using the money
In it
Having got her gloves on without
tearing tbem the lady felt of her back
hair, folded ber plump little bands and
was evidently lost In a day dream.
She did not leave the car till It reach
ed tbe terminal, and when sbe did sbe
and 1 were tbe only persons in it 1
waited till she bad arisen and started
for the door There was the portemon
nale resting safely In tbe Junction be
tween tbe seat and Its back. The
lady's face was turned from me; tbe
motor man was busy; 1 took up the
portemonnale, put It In my pocket and
left tbe car The lady started up a
street I followed ber and, presently
passing her. raised my hat and said:
"1 beg pardon. Can you tell me
where Mr Smith lives?"
She turned her eyes upon me and
asked -
"What Smith?"
"Why. the Mr Smith, of course!
There's always one particular Smith tn
a place.'
"1 dou t know any Mr. Smith at all."
This was said wltb bauteur.
"Would you mind my walking with
you till you reach your home?" I
asked.
"1 certainly would."
"Well, then, I will leave you 1 pre
dict however, that before twenty-four
hours have passed you will give me an
invitation to visit you Here Is my
card."
She took the caid and, tearing It into
bits, scattered tbem on the sidewalk
At tbe same time ber color was rising
like a bay of Biscay tide.
"Good morning," I said, raising my
bat with Infinite politeness, and left
ber. At tbe same time I kept ber In
sight till I saw ber enter a dwelling
standing lu handsome grounds and
afterward inquired all about It and Its
occupants Returning to tbe city, I
mailed one or my cards to tbe ad
dress and waited. By noon tbe next
day 1 received a note from a .Miss
Edith Belford stating that It I was tbe
gentleman who bad sat opposite ber In
the car the day before and could tell
her anvthlng about a poeketbook she
bad lost she would be obliged If 1
would do so I replied that I had Join
ed ber the day before for that purpose,
but nothing thai there seemed to he
something In my personality that was
distasteful to her, I bad felt it Incum
bent upon me to leave ber To this
sbe sent an Invitation for me to come
and see her I did so nnd was eagerly
received
"Do you know anything about It?"
she asked hurriedly
"Have you found out anything about
where Mr Smith lives?" I asked In,
reply. .
Her big eyes grew bigger. What
could I mean? '
I took her portemonnale from my
pocket and han-J It to ber. Tbe
change from tbe worried expression on
her face to one of delight was ravish
ing. "Where did you find Ir?" she asked.
"Where yon left It on tbe sent In tbe
car."
I Insisted on ber counting the money
over till the amount came out twice
alike S'Jiin then rose to go By this
time my facetloiisness began to. dawn
upon ber She asked me If there wus
nothing sbe could do to snow her ap
preciation of my kindness In tbe mat
ter, and I told her there was I should
ike to make her acquaintance.
I iiiude It so effectually tbnt we are

JA7JIES E.
Republican Candidate for Auditor
My opponent has just finished two terms as County Com
missioner. He is a man of wealth and influence; has as much need
for the salary as a wagon has for five wheels.
I have never asked for an elective office.
I served one term as Hillsboro's postmaster.
After a careful investigation President Jaft made my ap
pointment a personal one.
I went into that office as clean as a hounds tooth, other
wise 1 could not have had it.
I came out of it just as clean.
I want the Auditor's job for the salary, because it means
a living and education for my children.
That is where the postmaster's salary went and I am
proud of the result, altho it left me just one jump
ahead of the wolf. You who have finished the edu
cation of your children can appreciate the sacrifices.
It will take a battle royal to win and thus far I have had
to battle for every inch of my progress.
I am asking you for your personal favor. If you grant it
I win and I assure you it means everything to me.
' Respectfully,
JAMES E. McDERMOTT

. Q PILOT LIGHTING PLANTS V
The Flame of Acetylene Light is Small
and the Burner Peculiar
You have probably noticed that
a Pilot Country Home Acetylene
burner Is shaped like the letter "Y."
And that the little gas openings
In the arms of the burner are only
pin hole size. So small they let
out only half of a cubic foot of
Acetylene In an hour.
You might leave one of these
Acetylene burners open by accident
all day and even then there wouldn't be
gas enough in the air of the room to
enable you to set fire to It if you tried.
Aa a matter of fact, you would have to
leave the burner open fully three days and
nights In a room twelve by fourteen, with
windows ond doors closed tight, before thero
would be any fire or explosion whatever.
And the chance of your leaving a burner
open that lone is not worth considering. The
pungent odor of the escaping gas would be cer
tain to attract attention in u few seconds.
