THE REVERSE SIDE
By JACK LAWTON.
(Copyright, 1920. Wi-ntern Nc-YpIsr Union.)
Stephen sat wljh brooding eyes look
ing over' his meadows. To Stephen,
the spreading fannlaiid which lie In
herited was the most beautiful thln
In the world. In It he found his life
work tuitl his Joy. To wntelt the grow
ing nud plentlliide of the labor of his
bunds nnd brain, was to him n great
wonder and satisfaction. And it was
his misfortune that love, coming later
than It ciiniu to men who sought out
their eiiicrialiiinent, .should como In
the delightful but unsuitable person ot
llildegard Vmie. llildegard was-born
and raised to an environment very
different from Stephen's meadows,
llildegard had known luxury and noth
ing but luxury and Its benelits. That
he should have found her at all wns
Inconceivable. A relative Vane had
purchased as a toy a certain farm In
Stephen's vicinity, and under this
Vane's Midas touch the farm turned
out ns prolltably as Ids various other
Investments. So to the big remodeled
country house on tho hill, ho invited
occasionally city friends for week
end visits, and Ids favorite niece
llildegard was one of the most fre
quent visitors. At length, after a
winter season of gnyoty, It was thought
best by the family physician that
.Miss llildegard go to her uncle's rural
estate for a prolonged and restful
stay; and so, riding upon her pony
one day. llildegard had found Ste
phen's farmland, and cantering down
the tree-lined avenue, asked the favor
of a drink of cool water. Just at first,
the girl had taken Stephen for one of
the usual helpers. When he responded
to her request In his' deferential cour
teous way, she became Interested In
Ids personality, and questioned the
elder Vane, upon her return, concern
ing, "the big good looking, farmer."
Her uncle laughed as bo made reply,
"Look out for your heart, Hilda. A
mail like Stephen Strong might do
more damage to a girl's heart, rough
clad, than any drawing-room Idol."
Hilda smiled retrospectively, "He
looks like his mime," she said, "strong.
Tell nie about Jiim."
"Keglsterlng Interest already," her
uncle remarked. "Well, all 1 can tell
Is from reports, lie's a college man
agriculture; capable, successful, hon
est. Wedded to country (c.
"He would be," she mused, "or lie
would not devote himself to It."
The proper Introduction had come
about quite naturally. As Hilda wns
driving one evening with the elder
Vane, Stephen approaching, stopped to
give greeting. After that the girl met
him frequently, and later accepted
vnrious gravely offered Invitations to
Inspect the Strong farm, or to drive
through the hills at Stephen's side.
Stephen had not realized that In this
proximity n hopeless love might come
to him; friendship, pure and helpful,
he had thought of as a possible and
pleasant result. But love came. And
such a love as only a true nnd simple
heart like Stephen"! could know, j
Now that she wns going bnck to
the city, nud autumn lay upon the
farm lands, Stephen told himself cru
elly that he might have won her love
If he had stooped to that selfishness.
There was no vanity In the thought,
only sorrow nnd a knowledge of the
sweetness of her nature. Hut lip was
allowing her to go without a word,
without n sign. Her lovely eyes had
been wistful nt parting with nn appeal
she herself but half recognized.
Stephen stubbornly Ignored their np
peal. This was the only life for which
he was lifted, the only life In which
he might earn n measure of success,
but to tie llildegard Vane to Isolation,
to take her from the court where she
charmed nnd fitted well, he wns un
willing to accept the grent gift of her
renunciation. The, uncle had hinted
of a millionaire back there, who wait
ed her favor, llildegard should not
be templed In an hour of sympathetic
feeling for himself, from her millions.
So. politely, coldly, Stephen bnle good
bye. One comfort he gave hlmse'f,
the sending of n basket of selected
fruits to her nt ho.- uncle's, a fme
wcll gift before her coming departure.
And now ns he sat, be held her foriwil
"Jhank you" note mi his big brown
iTnnds. A square white card, gilt
edged nnd of brief wording. Stephjn
held the card penny, and turned It
slowly about, his very touch, a caress.
Suddenly he noticed that he had neg
lected to rend tho reverse side of he
card. There was writing here. Hilda
womnn-llke. had added a postscript.
Then his eyes racing on to the words,
he renllzed that thfs wns no postscript
which she had written, but a complete
note to her sister Kllznhcth, evidently
In the city. Often the girl had spoken
to him regarding her married sister
Hess, her mother, nnd their aspira
tions. Hilda laughed lightly, he re
membered, ns she bewailed her dif
ference to the wotneii of her family.
"Dearest Boss," read Stephen. "I
am coming bnck to you, don't worry.
The ccllpso which you fenr for mo Is
not to happen. But honestly Bess, I'd
rntheT live here forever and ever with
my ninn qf the soil, thnn do anything
else In the world. Ho Is true Bess,
and Strong thnt'a his name "
A blot ended tho message,
"Thnn anything tlso In tho world,"
be murmured Joyously.
"Oh I little girl of mine, you are go
lox to have your choice."
Enough of It.

WATCHES GIVEN SEVERE TEST
Bureau of Standards at Washington
Will Give Certificate of Accuracy
to Any Timepiece.
Comparatively few people know
that any person can send his wntch to
the bureau of standards at Washing
ton for testing to nscertaln If It qual
ifies ns a timepiece of the highest
grade designated as "Class A."
The privilege Is used chiefly by
watch manufacturers, the Illustrnted
World tells us, who accompany each
tested timepiece with a government
To ascertain tho nccuracy of a time
piece It Is placed In a large glass-front
refrigerator, equipped with automatic
devices that keep tho temperature at
a fixed point, In which the wntch
"runs" for stnted periods at vnrious
degrees of bent and cold. When the
regulator has been set, the flow of cold
air from the Ice chest nhove the wntch
chamber Is controlled by n thermo
static device, and, when necessary,
wnrm air la Introduced from the out
side. Tho three temperatures nt
which all watches undergoing the test
are kept are 4o, 70 and 05 degrees
To qunllfy In "Class A," a watch
must not vary more than four or live
seconds from correct time, nnd, in
addition, it must be able to repeat Its
performance la a variety of positions
and under varying conditions. In all
there are eleven specifications In the
test, some of them Involving technical

HUGE PYTHON "RAN" SHIP
Little Doubt That Reptile Was In Su
preme Command, at Least for
a Few Hours.
How a huge python took possession
ot tho British steamship Bolton Castle
for a brief period during her recent
trip from Singapore to Victoria, H. C,
was related by ofllcers nnd passen
gers of the vessel on her arrival at
the Canadian port.
Three of these monster serpents
were being shipped to the Bronx zoo
In New York, nnd in some unaccount
able manner one of them managed to
make Its escape. The whereabouts of
the snnko was a matter of anxious con
jecture among the crew for a
couple of days, until in the early hours
of the third day out tho quartermas
ter was precipitately driven from his
post at the wheel by the appearance
of the monster In the pilot house door
way. The v.cssel wns allowed to drift for
a couple of hours, until, armed with
every available weapon, some mem
bers of tho crew undertook a stealthy
raid, arriving Just In time to see the
snnke leave the pilot house and glide
Into the sen. The creature was said
to measure 30 feet In length.
Flowers for Heroes.
In this country the long-lnsllng little
flowers called "Immortelles" are com
paratively little known. In France,
however, they are grown In enormous
quantities for the decoration of
Nearly all of tho Immortelles pro-
duccd In France arc grown In the
neighborhood of the village of 0111
oules, which Is In the South, not far
from Toulon. The harvest begins in
Mny and last tea days, a period call
ed the "decade of the Immortelles."
They have to bo picked very early
In the morning, when hnlf-open, lest
they wither. Usually they are sold by
weight. Tho war has brought pros
perity to the village of Ollloules, be
cause of the Increased demand for Im
inorlelles for the graves of soldiers.
Where Sliver Is Plentiful.
Tho stnndnrd of value in Potosl, Bo
livia, for everything from sweethearts
to cities is the Silver hill of the Thun
derer. Willis Knnpp Jones in Travel
gives a picturesque history of the won
derful TlollvJnn silver mine nnd the
town which spent 510,000,000 celebrat
ing the coronation of King Philip II
of Spain. As the legend goes, when
tho early Indians stnrted digging there
for silver tho mountain shook and
thundered: "This hill Js not for you.
It belongs to a race which will come
later." In this strange town sliver
wns more plentiful than bread.
Are Women the Stronger?
That American women have tho true
sporting spirit nnd arc learning to ask
no favors In the game of life Is shown
by the comments made by several of
them In regard to tho recent demand
of the women of Paris for separate
cars In tho subwnys. One woman, and
this a dancer by profession, says that
,sho has never hnd a scat In a subway
In New York city, where she lives,
nnd that she really enjoys standing up,
as It gives her n feeling of superiority
nnd of being nble to stand on her own
feet nnd fight her own battles In
