Wm. C. Wllaon, president of the Mia-
aouri Prohibition society, returned yes
terday from Chicago, where the place
of mcotlog of the noxt prohibition na
tional convention was selocted. The
St. Louis delegation worked hard to
secure the prlio, but thore waa very
strong opposition from New York and
Cincinnati. The latter city, Mr. Wilson
said, is understood to onve ou,uuu to
draw the three conventions. Regard
Ing the fooling; in the national committee
Mr. Wilson said: "There was a very
strong, aggressive fouling. Every one
was iu tor a general movement along
the wbcle line. Thore are to be no co.
alii ions or compromises. A Texas del
cgnto shows bow dead is the cry that
we arc the doinovrntic helper. Ho said
that down there the prohibitionists are
called the republican helper. So yon
see," said Mr. W!lon." that oUwecn
these two Urea we are likely to get
good character. After awhile they will
all find that we are not carrying wood
and water for anybody but ourselves."

By the way the idea in tho committee
was that the defeat was a good thing,
that It is showing that local prohibition
is not effective, and that the only thing
is national prohibition. Indianapolis
secured the convention finally by tho
aid of St. Louis against Now York

tbe Legislature last winter relieving

"Well, I'm awfnl glad to got here.
I've been coming fori don't how long,
but 1 hain't soemed to get around to il;
and so last week I says to pa, 'If I'm
going up to Dora's, I'm jest going to
go.' And pa say, all right, to fix up
and go, then; and ma and I jest went
right round anil put tnmgs togetuer
hich I needed, and pa took ma down
to tho train Monday morning, and
here I be. I aint't a bit used up
neither; ma, she said I would bo."
She laughed quite heartily, tapping
the arm of her chair and fingering the
bow of ribbon on top ot her bead.
Burton murmured something in re-
spouse he did not know what. Ho
sat sliffoned in the attitude nf poll to
deference which bt bad assumed, quite
lie felt no desire to smile; he was
too much shocked and appalod for
that. Good Heavens! thts wua far
worse than anything he had Imagined.
His hoad fairly butzed; he sat staring
at Dora s sister in utter uinnanuta.
"Prettv big place yon ve got here.
hain't you? Miss Trumbull pro
ceeded, her cordiality unaffected by
his silence. "Considerable bigger n
the college, I suppose. 1 hain't never
been in cities much, and I get kind
o' turned round iu 'em. I don't know
I should like it living here. It s so
kind o' lonesome, meeting so many
people you ain't acquainted with.
Why, where I've beon there ain't any
body in town you uon t anow; ami u
you oo see a stranger, it am i very
hard to find ont who 'tis."
Burton gasped. Vt as It possible
that Dora could have believed what
she had said about her sister? Yes,
he reflected that Dora had not seen
her before for tome time, and her
fondness for her, and her good-tern-
Sored admiration of everybody, had
one the rest.
Countrified) Urn-ton gazed at her.
Her clothes did not In; she had a
string ol beads on, and a bine bow
and a breast-pin at her neck, and red
ribbons In her hair. Prolty? Yes,
she wat undeniably pretty; that he
admitted freelv. But ttvlish, and nut
provincial? What could Dora have
been thinking nl?
The young man passed hit hand
across his forehead weaklv.
"I s'spose I'd have be'n here long
ago," Dora's sistor want on. serenely,
"if I hadn't be'n off to school. Dora
she's told you I've be'n to boarding-

He would have retired without fur

But litirtuii utiictly intercepted them

her away. He did not take her to the)

a dim corn''r of the deserted hall, and
sat down btVide her.
"Weli?1 he said, simply.
Mi Trumbull mit her fan to her

queer mixture of apology and defiance
