Admitting, that Stefforson is dead,
for the fact is altogether beyond dis
pute, there Is not
the least doubt
that he was an
wag when living.
There was not a
wet eye at his fu
neral. It was
about the moBt
arid affair with
in the officiating
but It was certain
ly not moist, and
it would have
'been a wonder If
it had been. She
"v f had been aiulct-
M "" ed with Blotter-
- son for 11 years.
He, the late un-
lamented, had not enjoyed the best of
reputations when Mrs. Stefferson mar
ried him. She was warned how It
would be. She might have forgotten
It, but all her friends told her bo
They knew that the kind of son Stef
ferson had shown himself to be would
not make the best kind of husband.
The undutlful son had proved to
be a faithless husband. Marriage, so
far from curbing his appetite for
strong liquors, seemed to have re
moved any slight restraint he might
He was relieved of the necessity of
working for a living because Mrs.
Stefferson had money. Luckily, It
was tied up In such a way that she
was unable to touch the principal.
It was nearly two years after that
Mrs. Stefferson had altogether dis
carded her mourning. The rest had
done her ,good. She was getting com
fortably stout and had regained quite
a little of her youthful good looks.
She was sitting In her prettily fur
nished little parlor attired In a par
ticularly becoming bouse gown. A
large Angora cat was purring In her
lap, occasionally turning a lazy yellow
eye up at the cheerfully trilling ca
nary. The piano was open and there
was music on the rack. A vase on a
bookcase held some vivid La France
roses and on the sill of the sunny bay
window there were embroidery mate
rials and a box of bonbons.
Mrs. Stefferson laid down her novel
when her visitor was announced and
got up, to the profound disgust of the
cat. The visitor was an elderly, gray
haired woman, with a decided chin.
Mrs. Stefferson embraced her quite
affectionately and aBked her to take
oft her things.
"No, thank you, my dear," said the
elderly woman. "I've only a very few
minutes to stay. No; no tea, thank
you. My, but It's pleasant In here!
It looks a little different from
I "Bessie, that's what I called to see
you about. I heard something today
i that shocked me more than I can tell
you. I didn't believe It, and I won't
believe It, until you tell me It's true.
Bessie, dear, you're not going to get
married again, are you?"
Mrs. Stefferson smiled, blushed' and
The visitor gasped. "But not not
Mr. Crawley? Oh, Bessie, I hope you
I are not going to do anything so foolish
Mrs. Stefferson colored again, but
this time with indignation. "I think I
am the best judge of whether It Is
foolish or not,'r she said. "I don't con-
sider that it will be foolish at all. I
I expect to be perfectly happy and If I'm
happy I don't think It is anybody else's
t "But you can't possibly know what
' you are doing," persisted the elderly
woman. "Bessie, you know that I am
, a friend of yours and I wouldn't have
you anything but happy. You may
' not think it's my business, but I feel
it is my duty to tell jou that Mr
. Crawley Is a bad. bad man."
I "Oh, not at heart."
I "At heart and all through. My dear,
do you know his habits? Do you know
his character? Neither could be worse.
I It's my plain duty to tell you that, and
if you have the least doubt of it I can
prove it to you."
"I'm not going to listen to you," said
Mrs. Stefferson. "You don't know him
as I do. Nobody does. I've heard all
those tales about him, and I don't say
I that he has been perfeot, but what he
' needs, and always has needed, is a
good woman's Influence."
1 "Pahl" exclaimed the visitor. "Bes-
sle, you must be a fool. Is it possible
that after all the misery you experh
enoed In your first marrlago you can
still delude yourself with that idea?
Did your Influence help Stefferson?"
Mrs. Stefferson sighed. "You forget,
my dear, that he died," she said gen
tly. "Do you know, I often think that
if he had lived I might have made him
see his faults and repent of them, Who
knows but be might have become a
thoroughly good man?"
Altogether an extraordinary case,
The most ghastly superstition has
nftAn ltd hRA In n lllrilnrnlla fan. Tt
Is like the case ef Jones. "Jones,"
said a man, "tells me that his wood
en leg pained him horribly last night."
"Nonsense I" was the reply. "How
oould his wooden leg pain him?" "His
wife," explained the man, "hit him
over the head with it!"
SELECTING A MODEL
By F. A. US9INQ.
Tho novelist sat at his desk writing
when his wife suddenly laid her hand
on his shoulder Ho looked up at her.
"What Is the matter, dear?"
"Oh, It Is my family again. Uncle
Hans Peter's feelings have been hurt
by your last short story."
"His feelings have been hurt? I do
not quite understand."
"Well, you remember that tho name
of the villain In It is Hans Peter."
"That has been enough to hurt him
"I don't quite understand yet. Is
Uncle Hans Peter then such a disgust
ing perBon as tho type I describe?"
"No, not at all. But recently you
wrote another story In which one of
the persons was a certain merchant
whom you called Theobald Olarson,
though you knew that Cousin Theo
bald" "Good Lord, I bud quite forgotten
that you had a cousin Theobald. I
never thought of It when I wrote the
story, but my merchant was a hypo
crite and a swindler and not the least
bit like your cousin."
"Of course not, but one Incident
chains Itself to another. You remem
ber tho story you wrote about the Ille
gitimate child? Agnes thought that
was a slap in her face."
"Once more I don't follow you."
"You cannot have forgotten that her
first baby was born eight months after
"Now you must forgive tr.e, dear. I
never for a moment thought of count
ing the months. I took the baby's
birth aa a most natural event."
The novelist's wife kissed him ten
"You will promise me never to use
my relatives as models?"
"ModelB, darling. I never use mod
els. People think so In their own silly
minds. But I promise I shall be very
careful not to hurt the feelings of
either Uncle Hans or Cousin Theobald
or Sister Agnes. I hope there are no
usurers in your family."
"Good. Besides these three, my nov
el tells of a certain paper manufactur
er, who Is a most disgusting hypocrite,
who Is In love with the usurer's beau
tiful daughter and whom the usurer
favors because of his wealth. Then
comes the conflict and the young man
The novelist wrote his famous book,
"The Usurer's Daughter," which cre
ated such a sensation in the literary
world. The magazine rights were sold
to the "Copenhagen Magazine."
When he received his check from
the editor of the magazine he present
ed his wife with n diamond ring and
took her to the Royal theater in the
Two months lajer the book came
out, and the next day a distant relative
of the author's wife called to see her.
She received him very coldly, hav
ing always disliked him most cordial
ly, but he did not seem to notice It.
He walked straight up to her and
threw a copy of the Copenhagen Maga
zine on the table In front of her.
"Is your husband In?" he asked.
"No, he Is not," she replied.
"Ho Is a scoundrel," he hissed. "In
this story he calls me a usurer. There
Is not the slightest doubt that ho
means me. As If I were not entitled
to charge a miserable 2 per cent a
month on the security I get. I don't
see that It Is any of his business, and
I hope you will please tell him so.
While the young couple were at the
breakfast table the boll rang out
sharply. It was the father-in-law of
the novelist, the well-known minister
of a fashionable church, a stout.
I smooth-shaven raanith gold-rlmmed
I pectacles; ' "
"Ynu 'miserable, hound," he hissed,
. and his eyeB shot fire.
"What Is the matter?"
The reverend gentleman threw a
copy of the book on the table.
"A gentleman does not use models
for the person In his books, you rascal.
You write here that I am a hypocrite
who goes to church In the morning and
spend my evenings with girls of the
streets In private rooms of night res-'
taurants. You cannot deny It. You
Tho novelist stared at the angry
The minister went on:
"What you write is true enough,
very true Indeed, but it Is the duty of
a minister of the church to study vlco
In order to be able to denounce it from
the pulpit, and that is what I hava
been doing. How could I Bpeak of im
morality unless I had studied it close
by and gathered experience? But
words fall me to express what I think
of your conduct, sh"
He rushed out of the room.
In the evening a letter came from
Cousin Theobald, who wrote:
"Tomorrow I shall sue your husband
for onco more making use of my namo
In his novels and Insinuating that my
father-in-law is a usurer, when as a
matter of faot, he has never charged
more than 14 per cent interest on tha'
few loans he has ever made."
Here the novelist threw up his
hands in despair and vowed that he
would go abroad with his wife for a
year while writing his next novel.
She Well, perhaps I am Inclined to
be hasty In my speech, dear. I shall
try In future to weigh my words.
