What is written is written. Grace
moved to Gravstone Hall and Haisey
remained ac the factory cottage; nor j
did the separation, which was regarded
by both as merely temporary after
all, afflict either to the extent that
both had supposed it would. Grace
now became acting mistress of a large
and elaborate menage. As to her husband.
his domestic affairs fell into the
hands of Mrs. Ann Sullivan, wife of
Jim Sullivan. Halsey's moa. nuMod
foreman in the factory.
Mrs. Sullivan, blessed with six children
of her own. alleged that itwoul.]
be no trouble whatever to her to tak?>
on the sweeping, mending, and all
else for an additional household, and
to furnish meals for the solitary head
thereof; and such was her ability to
make proof of all these statements
that she in part was to blame for the
ead truth that Halsey was not as unhappy
as he ought to have been.
The chief reason for Ilalsey's easy
readjustment, however, lay somewhere
in n:> vuijj iiai i^uii *.;i mc naior^ uiwu ?
with blood half Rawn. Grace had |
b^en cold, after all. She had openly j
been discontented, and especially un- j
happy since the birth of the deformed
child. She had loft him and gone to
her father with no great protest; nor
did she, at the occasions of their rare
?: _ _ I
and lessening visits, display more than
lukewarm interest in her husband and
her former home. Within six months '
she was beginning to blossom out in
raiment, in demeanor. She spoke of
things not in his knowledge though in
hers. She was changing. She was
going up in the world. He. for the
time at least, was doing no better
than to stand still; as the factory now
was doing, and International Power,
also?marking time, waiting for something.
Ann Sullivan was not a bad philosopher,
besides being a good cook, and
at times she did not hesitate to engage
Mr. Halsey in conversation when
they met at this or that time of the
day; as when by chance, one noontide
when he came home for lunch,
he found her sweeping down the front
"You're lookin' lonesome to-day, Mr.
Halsey," she remarked without much
urelimlnarv. "You're fair erievin' for
your wife, I suppose? But why should
you expict anny woman to stay here
whin she has such a Pa, with such
a house as her Pa has?"
"Would you have gone over there,
Mrs. Sullivan?" asked Halsey, stopping
and feeling in- his pocket for a
pipe of tobacco. It was a question
they often had discussed.

went on, "is what anny woman wants.

Mr. Halsey? Ain't that what ivery
woman in the wurrld, at laste in
America, is wantin'?"
"Sure," nodded Halsey. "Don't forget
the automobile while you're wishing."
"True It is! Whut woman of anny
social position has not got her awtomobeel
to-day? Luk at me. If I had
in? rights, I'd have me electric bro'om

me what is me due, and I git me first
awtomobeel, 'twill be the proud day
fer me?the day whin I'm first fined
fer vi'latin' the speed law of the city.
Tis a great counthry. this!"
Mrs. Sullivan grinped happily at her
[ romancing; but presently set her
I broom against the door-jamb and
turned to speak more in her real mind.
"Anny woman wants to blackguard)
a little once in a while, Mr Halsey,
sir, and all women like to lie twice
I in a while. I'm just lyin' to you now,
i because the birds is singin' and the
' weather is so fine.
"Listen! Anny woman that's goin'
to be happy is goin' to be happy be-1
cause of the stomach she has for
eatin', and the joy she has for danc-|
[ in', and the heart she has for love of
her man and her children. And anny i
woman that has her heart in the right
place is goin' to stand by them and i
not by herself; and not by anny one
ilse. Try me and see if I'm lyin' now!
You're the boss. Fire Jim Sullivan
to-day, and see do I stick with him, or
do I go with some man that gives me
di'sionds, and awtomobeels. I'd stick
?and so'd anny other woman that
loved her man and her children."
"I'm glad you think so, Mrs. Sullivan."
"You know I think so! Oh, maybe
It's because I wasn't born in this country.
Over there, 'tis the woman helps
to make the stake. Here, she helps
to spend it. 'Tis a fine country this?

the American. I dunno again. 'Tis
all a question which you want to be,
rich or happy!"
"Or useful!" ventured Halsey.
"They're the same. Bein' useful Is
bein' happy. Ain't it the truth?"
Halsey nodded again and Mrs. Sul-!
livan reached once more for her im- j
plement of industry. i
"Jim Sullivan fits in his job," said i
she. "He's strong and can hold his !
job all right. I'm strong, and I can j
hold mine here, just the same, we've

"But tell me, Mr. Halsey," she went
on shrewdly, "how long wili we be
havin' even potaties to eat? Ye don't
keep min there in the factory long?
there's not many at wurrSc now. Besides,
there's no smoke in thim chlmbleys!
And 'tis time. What's the

"A good deai of labor troubles,"
commented Halsey non-committally.

mean well to you, boy, and so does
Jim. He'll stick. But Jim told me
the night that he could walk out, and
pick up a clean tin thousand dollars
fer the walkin'!"
Halsey controlled himself. This was I
news of staggering sort "Why doesn't
he, then, Mrs. Sullivan? That's a good
deal of money," he said quietly.
"Yes, why doesn't he??with me J

maybe his ijiotic idea he ought to,
Halsey made no answer except to
look over at the gaunt factory buildings.
A blue-coated figure was pacing
back and forth before the door.
"There's Jim Sullivan workin* inside,
and there's Tim Carney walkin'
beat outside," she resumed; "and the
pickets tryin' to break in, and some
one else tryin' to break in. What's it
about, Mr. Halsey? For the company?
What's the company?"
"It furnishes asparagus for some,
and potatoes for others, Mrs. Sullivan."
"Oh, does it, thin? Does it mind
that nntaHAa posts more than they
did, and so pay us better, or worse,
for what we do? If what we eat goes
up, we can't live; and if we can't live,
them that can has got to support us
somehow. Ain't tt the truth? What's
the ind of it, me boy?

there's birds and sunshine in the I
world. If it wasn't for thim and the j
i priest, I'm wonderin' sometimes what j
us poor folks would do."
"The theory is that some men are!
born stronger than others, Mrs. Sul- j
livan, and so entitled to the aspara-;
gus," smiled Halsey.
"Is it so? Jim Sullivan yonder is
! strong in what makes a man. In what
makes a woman I'm strong. Hasn't
God got a place fer us, as well as Mr.
j Rawn? And if God don't give it,
haven't such as us got to take it??I
don't mean the asparagus, but just
"But I've said enough," she went
i on, turning suddenly. " 'Tis only be- j
cause I'm fond of you, me boy, that
I've said so much. There's devilment
and mystery goin' on here. I don't
ask you what your mystery is, so
don't ask me what is mine. Jim's
likely to stick, and so am I. Tis likely
we can be useful in the world, and as
for Dein' strong, we're strong enough
tn havp each other. And as I was
sayin', we've the birds and the sun-1
shine?and the priest! So take your1
mystery you've got in there, and
match it up with mine. L'ave Jim |
Sullivan alone, and when these two>
| mysteries git together, yours and ours, |
why, maybe there'll be hell!"
Halsey did some thinking when he j
was alone. He knew now, and had j
known, that something, somebody be- j
sides the pickets pf the labor unions, j
had an eye on this mysterious factory!

Old giri or warren, re. 1., who acc:u-,
rately locat-cs and describes hidden |
things, are described in the Boston |
American today. Dr. Hopkins makes
an affidavit to which he says:
"I began the test of turning the,
stone of my ring inside my hand, putting
my hand in my pocket. When :
Beulah came in from another room i
I asked her what I had in my 1-eft j
hand. She readily suid, 'A diamond,'!
I then put my hand in my right pock- j
et, and asked her what I had in myj
right hand. She said 'Purse,' which ;
was correct. I took a coin in my i
right hand while it was still in my i
pocket and said: 'Beulah, what have |
I in my right hand now?" she said, j
'Quarter.' I said: 'Now, Beulah, if!
you will tell me the figures on the I
coin it is yours.' She answered I
'19-0-8,' and the quarter was hers. T j
then opened the case of my watch1

Beulah. if she could tell me the \
number of the watch movement. She,
said, '5-8-4-9-8-4-?' These were the j
Dr. Hopkins also took his watch :
from his pocket, and, holding it con-!
cealed asked her the time. Her reply
She named cards as they were taken
from a pack, told just where in ,
tne pacK eacti card was, ana in ev-erv i
way met the tests made by Dr. Hopkins.
Mrs. Mary Rash of Brooklyn then
endeavored to elicit from the girl,
wrong answers as to a variety of ques- i
tipns, but in vain.
Judge Mason of Warren also made j
an affidavit of tests he made. One
of them he described thus:
"I wrote a name on a pad, turned |
thp nari nnsirip down and nlflppd it
upon a table, and asked Beulah if she!
could tell what I had written. She j
told me correctly. I repeated it two j
or three times, receiving an accurate |
reply each time."
