When Daisy Grace McGmro had
passed her fifteenth birthday she felt
that, after the manner of certain
golden-haired, nzure-cyed heroines,
whose marvelous, paper-covered ca
reers she had pursued with breathless
interest, the time was drawing near
when she must surely "meet hsr
If Daisy Grace had been a normal,
everyday, outdoor girl, she never
would have stopped to consider
whether or not there was any such
thing as "meeting her fate." But
for the last two years Daisy Grace
had assiduously cultivated the soci
ety of "Bonnybel, the Beautiful Mill
Hand," "Dimpled Dotty, the Depu
ty's Darling," and countless other
ill-starred damsels, who had been,
figuratively speaking, knocked down
and sat upon by that same relentless
Therefore she felt that somewhere
in the wide, wide world the sad
sweetness of "a love more bitter than
death" awaited her. She felt that
she would dare all "for love's dear
sake," and she longed for the day to
come when she should "read life'i
meaning" in her lover's eyes.
But of all the paper-novel heroines
beloved by Daisy Grace, Claribel
ranked first. She had made Clari
bel's acquaintance in the first novel
she had ever read, and neither Bon
nybel nor Dimpled Dotty, nor any
He Neither Spoke Nor Hurried After
of her kind, could dim the luster of
"Little Claribel, the Sweetheart of
a Noble Lord," or arouse qnite the
same admiration in the youthful
breast of Daisy Grace.
In fact, after weeping over the
woes of the unfortunate Claribel,
she ceased to be Daisy Grace, became
Claribel Marchmont, and went to
school consciously smoothing her
curls and wondering if it were pos
sible that any of the A class boys
could be her "fate."
Before dismissal that night, how
ever, she had reluctantly admitted
to herself that the A. class boys were
not in the least "fateful," and she
had consoled herself with the thought
that possibly her "life's star" might
be waiting for her outside. He did
not materialize either that day or
the next. Yet Daisy Grace never for
a moment doubted his coming, and
read and reread Little Claribel until
she had a far more comprehensive
idea of her idol's moods and tenses
than she had of her lessons. But aB
she grew in knowledge of "white-hot
flames of passionate pain," "souls
that awaken at love's call," and
"strangers today, but lovers tomor
row," her inclination for study de
clined and at fifteen she was consid
ered the dullest girl in her class.
That fact, howovor, did not worry
Daisy Grace. She had matters of
greater importance to considor. Her
skirts had been lengthened and she
now rolled her hair in a soft knot at
the back of her neck. She was a
little girl no longer; Claribel had
just passed hor fifteenth birthday
when 6ho bed eloped with tho "noble
lord." Yes; it waB time for Daisy
Grace's destiny, too, to bo fulfilled.
The first time she saw him ho was
standing on the corner below the
high school waiting for a car. ne

Daisy Grace with n grave, penetrat
ing gaze and her foolish little heart
pounded like a triphammer, as sh
gave him ono' long, shy glance from
her blue eyes. Then her lashes
dropped in the most approved Clari
bel manner, for had sho not earnest
ly practiced this preliminary before
hor mirror against tho time of her
need? Then sho walked slowly on.
To her intense disappointment, ho
neither spoke nor hurried after her,
as Claribel's lord had done; but
Daisy comforted herself with the re
flection that perhaps ho had been
"'struck dumb at sight of her radi
ant beauty." Sho recalled one novel
where somo such thing had hap
Two days later sho again saw him
on the same corner. Daisy Grace
passed by in a flutter. This timo
she gave him a tiny little smile of
encouragement. He did not return
it, but looked at her so intently that,
according to Claribel, "she felt her
self being drawn toward him on
love's mysterious tide." Beyond
that one look, he made no sign, and,
somewhat anxious, Daisy Grace hur
ried home to consult Claribel.
She found that "he could not yet
realize the glory of his new-found
love," and this explanation did
much to comfort her.
It was a week before she saw her
idol again. The car had stopped at
the corner and he and another man
were just boarding it Daisy Grace
was desperate. If he did not know
where she lived or anything about
her, how could he "pour out his
his heart to her?" She had ten
cents in her little chain purse. Quick
as a flash she ran up the car steps
after him, and sank into the Eeat
behind him, just as the conductor
rang the bell. He had not seen her,
and was talking busily to the other
man. Daisy Grace. strained her ears
to hear his beloved voice.
"I tell you, Walters," said, her
unadorer, "I think the way some
mothers bring up their girls is an
outrage. Why, some of these little
fifteen-year-old girls have no sense
of modesty. Twice while I've stood
on the corner waiting for a car a for
ward little miss has deliberately tried
to attract my attention. If I
thought that my daughter would ever
;lo any such thing, I believe I'd lock
her up on bread and water until she
came to her senses."
"And you'd be justified," was the
answer. "A whole lot of these bra
zen youngsters ought to be severely
disciplined and taught the rudi
ments of modesty and self-respect.
This girl you speak of is a fair ex
But Daisy Grace waited to hear
no more. Like a flash she slid out
of her seat and reached the door, un
seen by the two men.
Choking down her sobs, she rushed
down the steps the instant the car
shopped and set out with all speed
for home. m -
"Hateful things!" she breathed,
the tears chasing each other down
her rounded cheeks. "I'm not for
ward. I am modest. I thought he
was my fate. Claribel "
She stopped short, drew a deep
breath, then said with spiteful em
phasis : "Claribel makes me sick. I'll
go straight home and tear her all up,
and I shall never read another novel
again as long as I live. Only, I must
say, right now, before I destroy Clar
ibel forever, that ' 'tis better to have
loved and lost than never to hav
loyed at all.' " New York Press.
DRAWBACK N FRIENDSHIP.
"Friends are an expensive luxury;
and when ono risks one's capital on
a calling and a mission here in life
one cannot afford to keep them. The
costly thing about keeping friends
does not lie, to be sure, in what one
does for them, but in what, out of
consideration for them, one refrains
from doing. In that way many spir
itual shoots are dwarfed in one. I
have been through it, and there are,
therefore, many years behind mo
in which I did not succeed in becom
ing myself." nonrik Ibson.
"Our landlady ought cortainly to

would bo very popular with tho pas

for cutting down tho fare."

WIGWAM HAS PASSED AWA
Indians In Canada Now Make Use el
Canvas Tents and Iron
A novelist would find a veritable
mine of data for stories of the severe
life In the woods among any of the
northern Indian Tribes. During my
stay among the Montagnais at Lake
St John two families descended from
their winter hunting grounds to the
post, being forced on the way to boil
their moccasins and pelfries for soup
to avoid starvation. Yet these same
people were strong enough to travel
and attend to tho necessities of thelt
camp. Within five days they return
ed again to the forest.
The canvas tents, which have en
tirely replaced tho native birch bark
wigwams, came into general use
about twenty-five years ago. The first
Indians to introduce them set up theli
tents and made camp in the space ol
an hour without having to cut the
numerous wigwam poles or dig away
the snow underneath, while the old
bark lodge required the snow to b
cleared to the ground on account oi
tho Are in the center, the whole task
consuming about two and one-hall
hours. The box Iron stoves heat the
tents very well and consume less
wood than the open fires. Southern
Conquering Smallpox Scourge.
Smallpox is no longer feared by civ
ilized mankind. This is partly due,
no doubt, to the immunization of the
races through vaccination, and partly
to the better methods of aanltntlnn
and preventive treatment generally. I
In the first year of our occupation ol ,
the Philippines, where smallpox was.
then an endemic or constant disease,'
there were 675 cases among our sol-1
dlers and 240 deatbe. . A system ol'
rigid vaccination was adopted, and in '
tho last five years there have been'
only five cases and not a single death.
Tho army records in Porto Rico tell
the same story, and seem to prove
beyond question tho efficacy of vac
clnation. Dr. 8. C. Rockhill of Cln-1
cinnati reports that he has had much
success in preventing the pock mark-1
lng of the face in smallpox cases by ,
painting the pustules with a lotion ol !
nine parts glycerine and one part
Iodine. By this treatment also the
patients get over the attack in from
eight to fifteen days,. Others prevent
