remarked Crawford, examining the
scantily clad figures in the photo

the family, and Mrs. O'Brien began a
spirited defense of the costliness of the

the door was flung open, and the Duke
"I hytes tc-hintrude,' he apolo
gized breathlessly, "but 'ere's a tele
gramfor Mrs. O'Brien."
Mrs. O'Brien turned the paper over
for an instant in blank amazement.
Then she became pale and collapsed
into a chair.
"Oi have a tiligram She's killed!
My Patsy's killed!"' moaned the old
woman, while the tears streamed down
her face in a veritable food.
"Wouldn't it be as well to open it?"
suggested Crawford dryly.
O'Brien grabbed the telegram and
tore it open, but his wife snatched it
"Oh, is she alive?" supplicated Nora,
who haU remained petrified with con
sternation. "Praise be, she is! It's soigned 'Pat

Then, while O'Brien heaved a great
sigh of relief, she read aloud c

He added to make it perfectly clear tc
them, "Sho means that the show i3 no

But Mrs. O'Brien at the next few
words of the telegram sat bolt upright

with a round turn and put a quick, ef

"Use for me here? An' whafll Nora

"Nora 'II be entertainin' Mister Craw

"I fear I am in the way," he ob

"Make yirself at home. Stop an' have
a bit of a chat with -Nora. She'll have
a chance to say a wurrud for herself
now her mother's 1'avin' the room."
She went out and Crawford and the
"wild rose" were alone. He watched
f her awhile at her work of clearing the
table and for once in his life was at a
loss what to say. She was entirely
different from the women of his class
and from the women not of his class
with whom he associated.
"So it's your sister and Mallory, eh?
I shall have to congratulate him," he
ventured, feeling that he must sav
i something. "I am going to be his part
ner, you know."
"Isn't that nice!" exclaimed the girl.
"Dan's a fine man, and he'll make a
good husband. Mom says good hus
bands are awful scarce."
"I wouldn't worry about that if I
were you," he laughed, amused at her
candor and naivete.
"I'm not worrying!" she told him.
"I'm going on the stage."
"That's not a bad place to get hus
bands these days," he. said.
"Oh," she protested, "but I'm not go
ing on the stage to get married!"
"No? Oh, I see, for fame!"
He smiled at her, more and more
"No. indeed," she said decidedly, "for
$20 a week. Just think of all the pret

"Patsy says I ought to stay at home
that I don't know when I'm well

and friendly as the conversation pro

She looked at him with a pout of dis
appointment and displeasure.
"That's all very well. But how would

avowed, his eyes lighting up with a

"Being Sunk to 150 Feet.
"The Alemania Mining company,"
says James H. Parker, "has been -developing
the Alemania mine liy running a
tunnel for the last six months, cross
cutting through what Is known as the
El Oro slato and shale, and during this
timo tha tunnel has reached a distance
of 55 feet. The last few feet has en
rnnntered numerous seams of auartz
and calcites, which, with the country
rock, is highly impregnated with iron
pyrites containing gold. Thus It is that
tho identical conditions exist in this
Alemania tunnel as tlse encountered
in every cross-drift ar-t workings run
in the EI Oro district ;iSt prior to en-J
countering tne oie Doies tnemsehes.
Near the entrance of tiris tunnel, the
company is also sinking a shaft to the
depth of 150 feet, from which it pur
poses to again cross-cut both easterly

several bonanzas, the first immediately

Coronas an enormous fortune; the sec

M.f iron deposits "because." he said.
"They contain a considerable percent
age of titanium, which rums it for mak
ing steel." This idea is now exploded.
The latest Ideas, which are diametric
ally opposite, are worth knowing:
The use for titanium which gives
promise of greatest expansion is in
steel and cast iron. In steel It is or-
dinarily added in the form of ferroti
tanlum (containing preferably from 10
to 20 percent of titanium) in quantity
sufficient to form about 0.1 percent of
Ralls treated with titanium and laid
in places on railroads where the wear
was especially hard are said to have
shown much less wear than "untreated
rails. Gray cast iron is also said to
I. show beneficial effects from tuch treat
ment. Cuprotltanlum Is also manufac
tured for use In bronze and other cast
ings containing copper.
The titanium acts as a deoxidizer
much like phosphor-tinj and makes
very tough castings.
Another use of titanium, which prom
ises to assume considerable propor
tions, is the manufacture of electrodes
for arc lights. Titanium ore in the
form of rutile, which is titanium diox
ide, has been mined in Nelson county,
Virginia, where a plant has been erect
ed to extract the metal from the ore.
TItaniferous iron ores are mined now
ir New York. Minnesota and Wyom
ing. There are immense bodies of iron
ore in the Jarilla mountain, 50 miles
northeast o El Paso, and if they con
tain titanium, will be of great com
mercial value. ,

Prospectors are said to be flocking

per day. The claims of the Merrill hoys
and those of the" Ojo del Oro mining
company are the central attractions, be

and are laying tons of good ore on the
dump, as is also .the Ojo del Oro mine.
