'.11surprise, lie folnd Giuseppe and An
iunziata sitting logethi(-r in the most
"Imieable manneL, addressing each oth
or as "caro" and "carissinia." "But
Were you not quarreling even now?"
exclaiied the perplexed poet. "Quar

ed." "But I have been running after
you In order to shoot you." "No, si
gnor, you never ran after 11e, for I have
been sitting here for the last hour or
more. You must have fancied all this."
And Giuseppe and Annunziata, who
had both 'Jen considerably frightened,
continuing to assure hinm that they had
had no quarrel, and Mary Shelley,
whom they had let into the secret, say
ing the same, Shelley was at last utter
ly rnystified and inclined himisvif to be
lieve that he must have fancied it.

careful account of every ounce of gum w
given theiml aind -very she t of stalms vt
they handle. The system 11s an abso- te
lute check on the stamp. sheets, but bn
was designed to insure the use of the
proper quantity of gum in proportion in
to the stamp sheets. ti
When they start work in the morn- so
ing, each of the men is charged with w
1,000 sheets of stamps and twenty-si\ at
pounds of gum. le must spread that n<
amount of gum over the given null

and exact scientifie calculations have th
determined the proportion of gum and I
paper. Rlgi1 and continuous inspection
and the keeping of a running account so
