in the grand stand.

of the catcher.

' "The diamond?" Nellie's eye
sought her left hand. "You didn
give me one, Bob?nothing but

his city editor told lnim to go down t
the railroad station, see Lord <'baric
Beresford, who was to wait there
little time between trains, and get ai
interview from him. The boy wa
country bred, and Beresford was littl
more than a name to him. But h
had an hour to spare before he wotil
have to be at the depot, and that hou
was spent in a library reading of th
fight before Alexandria and of revolv
ing guns in the Sudan.
When he reached Beresford at th
railroad depot lie found the rear ad
miral very gracious and obliging an
ready to fill him with much praise o
the country in whole and that part o
the country in particular. The bo;
took copious notes, then closed hi
book with a bang and a smile. *
"That's all good stuff, Ijord Beres

"Why did you change your plan
and not ?ro to 1'ort Arthur?" he wa

and not to be answered," he replied.
"The very reason why it is ren
news," pressed the boy.
"The foreign office at London rr
quested me not to go there," sail
' Beresford as he hurried back into hi
train. The boy kept his secret t
himself, wrote his conventional inter

that employed him, tihen wired Bercs
