The minister shut the door behind
his departing guests. Then he went
out into the kitchen, whither the
housekeeper had preceded him. He
found her standing on the back step,
looking across the fields. The wash
bench was untenanted.
"Hum!" mused Ellery thoughtfully,
"that was a good story of Captain Ma
yo's. This man Hammond must be a
tine chap. I should like to meet him."
Keziah still looked away over the
fields. She did not wish her employer
to see her face--Just then.
"I thought you would meet him,"
she said. "He was here a little while

Zeb's yarn was too much for him; he
doesn't like to be praised."
"So? Was he here? At the Regular
parsonage? I'm surprised."
"lHe and I have known each other
for a long while."
"Well, I'm sorry he's gone. I think I
should like him."
Keziah turned from the door.
"I know you would," she said.
In Which Captain Nat Picks Up a
It is probable that John Eller) nev
er fully realized the debt of gratitude
he owed to the fog and the squall and
to Captain Nat Hammond. Trumet, al
ways hungry for a sensation, would
have thoroughly enjoyed arguing and
quarreling over the minister's visit to
the Come-Outer meeting, and, during
the fracas. Keziah's parson might have
been more or less battered. But Cap
tain Nat's brilliant piloting of the old
packet was a bit of seamanship which
every man and woman on that foam
bordered stretch of sand could under
stand and appreciate, and the minis
ter's indiscretion was all but forgotten
in consequence. The "Daily Advertis

Captain Elkanah brought it up at the
meeting of the parish committee, but
there Captain Zeb Mayo championed
the young man's course and pro
claimed that, fur's he was concerned,

concerning her parson's walk in the

secret had been kept. The tide at ' ru
met, on the bay side, goes out for a
long way, leaving uncovered a mile
and a balf of fiats, bare and sandy, or
carpeted with sea weed. Between these
fiats are the channels, varying at low
water from two, to four feet in depth,
but deepening rapidly as the tide flows
The best time to visit the flats-tide
serving, of course-is the early morn
ing at sunrise. Then there is an inspi
ration in the wide expanse, a snap and
tang and joy in the air. Ellery had
made up his mind to take a before
breakfast tramp to the outer bar and
so arose at five, tucked a borrowed
pair of fisherman's boots beneath his
arm, and, without saying anything to
his housekeeper, walked down the
lawn behind the parsonage, climbed
the rail fence, and "'cut across lots" to
the pine grove on the bluff. There he
removed his shoes, put on the boots,
wallowed through the mealy yellow
sand forming the slope of the bluff,
and came out on the white beach and
the Inner edge of the fiats. Then he
splashed on, bound out to where the

wardrobe was in keeping with the size
of his salary.
And the third channel was so wide
and deep that he saw at once it could
not be forded, unless he was willing
to plunge above his waist.
He hurried along the edge, looking
for a phallower place, but found none.
At last he reached the point of the
flat he was on and saw, to his dismay,
that here was the deepest spot yet, a
hole, scoured out by a current like a
mill race. Turning, he saw, creeping
rapidly and steadily together over the
flat behind him, two lines of foam, one
from each channel. His retreat was

The current was surprisingly strong;
P he found it difficult to keep his footing
in the soft sand. It looked as though
he must swim for it, and to swim in
that tide would be no joke.
Then, from behind him, came a hail.

The Hat Question in 1790.
The Handel festival was originally
given in Westminster Abbey, and the
omcal notice of 1790 announced that
"no ladies will be admitted with hats,
and they are particularly requested to
come without feathers and very small
hoops, if any." As eeelesiastical law
demands that female worshippers shall
cover their beads in church, this regu
lation was curiously anomalous. A
suggestion in regard to ladles' head
gear was also made by Sir Frederio
Cowe tin 1906, wben he gave it as his
opinion that the ladies might discover
in their wardrobe some rbemely
fascinating fiat hats," which would
not obstruct the view. The "'fc9lat

consplicuous by their abseee. owing

NO LONGER SELECTS THE HAT
Hubby's First and Last, Experience at
a Millinery Store, Was Alto
gether Too Costly.
Congressman Ralph W. Moss of In
diana did not care much for a hat his
wife wore. He finally spoke about it.
Mrs. Moss admitted that it was plain,
and. Instedd of taking exceptions to
her husband's remark, invited him to
accompany her the next time she
bought a hat.
"I can certainly pick out a better
one than that," said Mr. Moss.
So they went to the store together,
Mrs. Moss said not a word as the
comely milliner displayed one beau
tiful bonnet after another. It was the
first time Mr. Moss had ever been in
a millinery store, but he appeared to
be at ease, and finally selected one of
the most Joyful creations in the en.
tire stock. Mrs. Moss looked well in
it. She was pleased.
"I'll take that." said the Hoosier
congressman. "How much is it?"
"Forty dollars." said the pretty girl
without even a blink.
Mr. Moss saw blue stars, but luck
ily had just come from the bank
and was able to produce that much
in cash. Now he lets Mrs. Moss buy
her own hats and be does not com
plain about their being plain.-Judge.
"This man doesn't teem to know
about the conaUtution."
"But he didn't miss a ball game
last season, judge."
"Then I gues he's assimilated."
Roses In Medicine.
Roses at one time figured prom
inently in the pharmacopoeia. Pliny
gives 32 remedies compounded of
rose leaves and petals. Sufferers
from nervous complaints used to seek
relief by sleeping on rose pillows and
3ne is told that Heliogabalus used to
imbibe rose wine as a pick-me-up
after his periodical gormandizing
hours. The fower was also served
at table, both as a garnish, in the way
parsley is now used, and as a salad
and rose water was largely used for
flavoring dishes. Roses as food have
gone out of favor among western na
tions. but the Chinese still eat rose
