continued. "I will wager that Ellen can

I had not asked the question before,
but now summoned the courage to say.
-Colonel, there is one little thing i

is business, you know." I said, laughing.
for I did not like the look of dignity he
suddenly assumed at the- mention of
business. "In lustice to both of us-i
ought to ask you how much will be my
beard by the week?"
Had Gen. Oglethorpe himself arisen
to confront the colonel I do not thin
lie could have shown more surprise than
b did at mv simple question. He drew
1 lmself up with a dignity which wm

I stood covered with confusion. 1

oortified to have so deeply wounded

vou had been kind enough to receive

for that, and you should not put me
under obligations which I can never
repay and which I have no right to ac
cept. But vou yourself are somewhat
to blame," i added quickly, for I saw
that he was still deeply offended. "You
told me that I might get board in one
of the farm houses and immediately of
fered me the hospitality of your root"
"The Turpins are not farmers, sir.
they are planters, and if we have to
"ook our own meals, we serve them
with no less degree of hospitality than

give me my stupid blunder or else let
me leave your house at once." '
His face relented Into a smile, and
extending his hand he grasped mine.
"As you say, lad, I am not blame
less in the matter. But we are getting
a little sensitive down here. And now
forget all about it, and, what is more,
don't ever mention it to Ellen or Bud,
for they would think their old father
had been lacking in dignity, else a mis
take of this kind were impossible."
When he left me I fell to prey to re
grets over my stupid blunder and,
what seemed worse, my apparent de
ception concerning the relationship with
the Kentucky Palmers. As long as I
thought I was going to an Inn of some
kind or to pay my board I had not
thought it worth the while to explain
the mistake into which the colonel had
fallen. I felt it to be too late now to
confess that in all likelihood there was
no kinship at all; or. if any, so remote
aa to form no ties of blood, and cer
tainly not to earn for me any consider
ation on that score. Feeling like a cul
prit. I threw myself on the bed. de
termined to leave the Pines at the first
moment I could do so without offend
ng my kind old host.
When the pickanniny. Sam, knocked
at my door to tell me that dinner was
served he found me prepared to do Jus
tice to anything in the way of food
which might be placed before me. I
had been traveling all day, to all in
tents and purposes without anything to
eat. While anxious to satisfy my hun
ger, yet it was with some feeling of
embarrassment that I started down
stairs to meet the colonel. He met me
at the foot of the steps and, motioning
me to follow him, led me to a room in
one of the side wings. There I saw
two silver goblets, frosted on the out
side, with their rims completely hidden
by long and graceful bunches of mint
without sitting down he handed me one
and took the other himself.
"Of late years, Mr. Palmer," he said,
"we have abandoned the time-honored
custom of drinking mint juleps before
our dinner; but in order that you may
feel perfectly at home and rest certain
of the fact that I feel no resentment
on account of your natural mistake. I
nave taKen tne liDerty oi asking you to
join me in one of these, sir," holding
the goblet as if pledging my health. i
"This delicious fluid should be sipped
only while sitting, but as the family is j
assemmed tor dinner, l will ask you to
forego the pleasure of a chat over our
juleps and drink standing. I pledge
your health, sir, and that of your kins
folk, the friends of my young man
hood." It was the first julep I had ever
tasted, and I shall never forget with
what delicious force the straw threw
the liquor against the roof of my month. '
The goblets were soon emptied, and I ;
was ushered into the parlor, where woJ
were evidntly expected, for th,e. oeca-
pants were standing.
"Mr. Palmer, let me present you to
my wife, Mrs. Turpin; to my daughter,
Ellen, and to my son, Howell Cobb,
whom I hope you will soon address as ,
Bud. Ellen, my dear, bid oar guest,
Mr. Palmer welcome, for he is a kins
man of my old friends, the Palmers of
Kentucky, of whom you have so often
heard me speak."
"Any friend whom my lather brings '
to us is welcome, Mr. Palmer, but we ,
make you doubly welcome on acorant
of the ties which bind our house to i
She extended her hand, which I took, I
and for the first time toojled Into that I
frank, open face. I did not think her
beautiful then, but I was unprepared
for the subtle ease and grace of man- ,
ner and the exquisite poise of her head
ar.d the patrician face that-was turned
to me without any sign of embarrass- ;
ment whatever. Her eyes were large I
and brown and her hands small ana '
white. These were the only things
about her that sunk then into my mem- i
"Mr. Palmer, father has taken u
somewhat by surprise and you must ex
cuse many things, but we make you
right welcome; and when you get tired ,
of playing billiards will Ellen and talk- !
lng politics with father I have a gooo
dog and gun at your disposal." ;
ine young man who was addressing
me was tall and big, and when I had
first entered I had mistaken him for
a lubberly farm hand, but here he was,
making me welcome with the ease of a
courier. Mrs. Turpin was a small, dell
cate looking woman, but was gowned
in a faded royal purple velvet, evi
dently the remnant of an anterior date.
"You young people can make plans
at the table. In the meantime Ellen's
roast is getting cold." said the coloneL i
Then I remembered about the cooking. I
ano tnougnt for a moment what a sac
rilege it would be to devour anything
prepared by those lovely hands, but a
suden convulsive pang of hunger ban
ished my sentimental thought and I
offered my arm gladly to Mrs. Turpin.
rhile she led the way to the dining
room. It i.as, in fact, an Immense hall,
wainscoted with oak, but the walls
airove the panelling were stained and.
as far as I could see. even moldy. It
was a gloomy looking place, but tht
table was made bright and cheerful by
two big candlesticks. On the table

was a profusion of dishes, some silver,
ethers of raw old china, and, as I saw
later. . there was hardly one of the lat
ter which was not broken or chipped,
but each steamed with some savory
vegetable or meat, and I soon fell 1ft
the way of handing plates around th
table and helping others from the
dishes in front or near me, just as we
were wont to do in the railroad eating
houses in New England when I was a
boy. The conversation was easy and
homelike, and I saw at once that I was
not looked upon as a stranger. No
questions were asked me about myself,
for which I was thankful, and I soon
saw to that the colonel did not intend
to relate th d-talls of our meeting that
morning or to account to the' other
members of the family for his sudden
impulse to Invite me to become a guest
at the Pines. So, as if by mutual con
sent, we refrained from making any
reference to the matter, and I determ
ined to leave it to the colonel to make
any explanations which he might think
to be best
The colonel told Miss Ellen what the
girls had said about Jim, at which sht.
laughed heartily, but grew very red
and showed some annoyance when he
related what they had said about choos
ing a farm in the county, and especial
ly when reference was made to Squire
Hawkins. I shall never forget how my
plate looked after it had gone around
the table. I had left my place empty
and came back piled to the brim with
every sort of vegetable on the table.
Miss Ellen laughed when I confessed
that I did not know how to eat rice,
nor would she rest content until she
had taken my plate and arranged it ac
cording to the manner of eating rice
in that section. She covered it with
butter and sprinkled a little salt on it,
and, handing it back to me, bade me
eat It. telling me that it was a part
of my education. She laughted again
when I wanted to put pepper on it. but
she would let her father put a little
dish gravy over it if It were not pal
atable. I ate It, not because I liked
it then, for I would have eaten so much
sawdust had she told me it was good
and bade me do so.
Every now and then, after I had
swallowed some rice. I would look up
to find her eyes fixed roguishly on me.
and then we would both laugh. She
seemed to relish the idea that I did not
like the rice and that I was eatins? it
because she had fixed it and told me to
do so. I made this fact very plain to
her by the faces I would make in swal
'owlng it. She confessed afterwards to
a littli- malice In forcing me to eat it.
and later, when I really began to like
it. she would often say, "Will you have
your rice with cream and sugar on It.
or a little DeDDer. Mr. Palmar"
After dinner we went on the porch. I
wnere ana Drought us pipes. "I hope
vou like the pipe," he said as he handed
me on old brier wood; "we have given
up cigars lately on account" of the
tariff." he added- with a bill, good na
lnred laugh. I said I did; that it was
my chiefest luxury In my university
days, and I still preferred it to cigars
Colonel Turpin said that if I did not
object to music Ellen would plav us
something; that she always did when he
took his after dinner smoke. I said
that I COUld not imagine rrntr 1ur-T-
and I leaned back prepared to undergo
any amount of torture and outrage to I
my artistic nature, for I knew ?ome- I

a splendid perforator on the piano andJ
nad given roe the benefit of his knowTM

however, thew floated . through th;.
window to ns the sweetest notes I '
seemed ever to have heard. I at '
dreamily thinking of this lovelv girl '
and her odd surroundings when she ap
peared at the window and asked if there
were anything I liked especially
rw,0-. nSJ knoS iL,yoa fori
Chopin she said. "Father does not
know It is Chopin, but it is the music ,
he likes, and so I always play some of
the noctnmes for him." j
"The truth is. Miss Turpin." I said, I
"I did not think of what you were j
playing, but was merely feeling the ef- :
feet of the music Your playing seemed J
to me to be a part of the scene out here, s
as if it were an accompaniment to the I
moon In its wanderings or to the star i
in the silent matches." ,
Mv speech sounded like flattery, and
I blushed as the thoucrht nnt in nu .
"I hope you v ill forgive my pralsA If
it f-ecmed extravagant," I said, "hut
I enly said what was in my heart with
out reflecting that you might take It
for flattery." I had been accustomed
to pay compliments at will, and sorae
t'mes. I fear, was given to flattery,
but I would notdiave had this Toung
girl to think me guilty of such 111
breediKc for anything in the world.
"If that is the way you feel," she an
swered sweetly, "I will play something
for you and trustto pleasing father,"
and going back to the piano she played
something I do not know what. Bod
said he had never heard her play it be
fore, and tiiough I asked her often af
ter that to play it for me again, I never
heard it; yet the strains even now go
through my head when I sit in the
moonlight or lie awake nights think
ing of Ellen.

Something Big is
Government Sets Off Tract
Land for Breeding Animals
and Bettering Stock.
State College. N. M May 27. Prof.
Luther Foster, of the State CoUege says:
"The large tract of land recently set

for the use of the New Mexico experi
ment station in cooperation with the
United States department of agriculture
for experiments in horse breeding and
range improvement is located about 20
miles northeast of Las Cruces, and ex
tends from the foot of the eastern slope
of the Dona Ana mountains to the top
of the San Andres range, covering an
area of about 20 by 30 miles in ex
tent. This will all be enclosed in dif
ferent tracts by substantial fences
which will give absolute control, es
pecially of that portion of the range
upon which the range improvement ex
periments are to be conducted. The de

Include all the modern ideas of range
