MAN IN THE ION
Again Witnessed a Scene Which
Probably Is Old as
DY GEORGE MUN30N.
"I inn sorry, .Miss .Mnrston. that you
havo decided to sover your connection
with thU observatory," said l'rofcssor
Hlytlio, rathur sternly. "Hut at our
ugu I can understand that tho Isolntlon
of llfo in thuso parts Is not wholly
congenial. In fact, If I may bo per
mitted to Buy bo, I havo often won
dorcd that you could emluru a year In
such a town as Kmerald. You wish to
get hack to thu world of mon or I
beg your pardon, .Miss Mnrston. I
didn't mean It In that sense."
Dospltu his llvo and forty years tho
Professor fairly quailed bctoru tho
young woman nt the recollection of lila
faux pas. Tho Professor was as exact
ub tho charts ho drew, and boiiiu said
that his heart Has as dry. Hut any
old bachelor at forty llvu Is apt to bo
"I muan, Miss .Mnrston, that nt your
ngo ono naturally desires congenial so
clety." "It Isn't that, Professor," answered
tlio joung woman, almost as embar
rassed as thu savant. "I havo enjoyed
my tlmo hero Immcnsoly Hut 1 havo
decided to go."
"And tonight," Bald tho Professor ro
luctnutly, "must bo our last view of tho
heavens together, then. Tho lcgond
that locates Paradlso In tho celestial
regions Is n singularly fortunate one.
Ono loses, In contemplating tho heav
ens, tho senso of tho pettiness of
earth. I can Imnglno no greater felic
ity than watching the stnrs with u con
genial companion "
Then hu broke- off nbruptly, for
tho second tlmo ho had been about to
iimkfi a "break."
Iu fact tho Professor felt singularly
disconcerted at tho approaching resig
nation of hli asslstnnt In thu big
Arizona observatory ho had experi
enced great dlniculty In obtaining u
uutlsfnctoryxflBlstatit. .Men had como

who were expecting his report at tho
next meeting of thu Astionomlcal soci

servatory a few hours later. The moon
was full and thu clear ntmpsphcro

ceeded very slowly Indeed. illss Mars

fessor. "I don't know how over I shall com

trumely seluntlflc mind .Most )oung
women, looking at tho moon, nre, I am
told, apt to tako foolish and lomnutlc
notions. For Instance, tho outline of
thoso areas which wo call continents
Is foolishly compared with tho face of
11 man, who Is popularly considered, I
understand, to wntch over tho sicken

tlioiiKli thu puro and exact sclcuco of
astiouomy could bo compared with
such idiotic phllanderlugs! Do ou nut

"Yes," answered MIhs Miuston In a

"I can see that jou weren't, and
cpuldn t be," exclaimed .Miss Marston
rising suddenly nnd speaking wltb
somothlne approaching anger. "Good
night, Professor Hlythe."
An Instant later she was gone, leav
ng tho Professor quite astonished al
her sudden departure.
"Why," ho ruminated, ".Miss .Mars
ton was almost almost fomlnlno to

new and strango courso of cogitation
"Miss Mnrston has gone, Professor,"
said tho elderly housekeeper when ho
descended from his observatory lator
Gono!" ejaculated tho Professor In
"Gono homo to Hnltlmorn hv tt.n

him significantly. Hut tho Professor
only murmured his surprise, nnd If ho
thought about Miss Marston subse
quently ho kept his rollcctlons to him
self. Hut tho work of mapping out tho
now craters proved unexpectedly dull.
Tho young fellow who succeeded his
employu was utterly Incompetent and
quickly vanished Tho Professor be
moaned his 111 luck to Mrs. Illgglns.
"I'd glvo anything In tho world to
get Miss Marston back," he said "Sho
was tho best assistant I over had."
"Well, why don't ou got her?" In
quired tho housekeeper.
"Get her!" ejaculated tho ProfesBor.
"Why, sho wanted to go homo: bIio
was tired of tho work.
Mrs. Illgglns smiled sourly nnd
thrust her elderly features within n
fow Inches of tho Professor's
"Do jou know wh sho left?" sho
asked. "Hecauso peuplo wero talk

jou were going to bo married. No
lady could stand for that."
"Hless my bouI! No lady could stand

"No, stnnd for talking about it when

grimly. So that night a letter went off
to Baltimore and, ten days later. Miss

tho Professor with sudden rapture

If a genius of the architect and the

wasted on unworthy objects, It Is be
cause the demand for this beautiful
architecture hat not yet become (en

so due to the fact that some who ap
preclatn and desire good architecture
havo not the means to command it.
Hut tho want of money Is secondary
Tho matter of primary Importance Is
that people should havo right Ideas as
