The letter was dated from Chicago
and signed Sydney. It was u passion

the letter of a man who loved deeply
and saw within reach at last the
paradise for which he had toiled and
etriven In exile. And the woman who
loved him read it for the twentieth

aglow with happinexs.

She was waiting for 1dm among the

to catch. the sound of familiar foot

At length a tirin tread crunched the
pravel, and she started to her feet with
his name upon her lips.
"Sydney nt last!"
"So, it Isn't Sydney, my child

was tossing in the delirium of brain
fever. For weeks her life hung In the
balance, ami then youth and a fine
constitution proved the conqueror, and
she rose, a pallid, little ghost, with sad
eyes, to face the long years of loneli
ness amf regret.
"She Is young: she will forget." her
father tried to lelieve, and he said It
to the man. his nephew, who had loved
her since her childhood. Hut when be
suggested as much to the girl she
shook iter head.
"I shall never forget," she answered.
"and I shall never marry another
She meant her words, but fate was
too stron? for her. The cousin was so
kind to her father and herself, and
thev told her that her coldness was
spoiling his life.
"Hut for his generosity I should be
a ruined man today," her father said,
"lie Is a good fellow; he Is rich; he
worships you. Make him happy. You
have had a great loss, but you are too
young to sit down and brotvd over the
past for the rest of your days. It is a
wrong thing to meditate. You will grow
morbid, old lefore you are young.
Agnes, lwlieve me that I have your
welfare at heart when I say that for
your own sake as much as his you
ought to marry Ralph."
She was still weak from her illness.
She thought she had no Interest left
in life, no desire save to please those
who loved her. So she listened to per
suasion, and when her cousin spoke
one day she answered "Yes."
"I have no feeling for you," she ex
plained, "other than affection and grat
itude. My heart froze when he died.
But if It will make you happy I will
be your wife when the spring comes."
"My unselfish angel, I will teach you
to care for me!" he said. "Heat melts

RIVER BOATS IN RUSSIA.
Nearly Every Known Means of Loco
motion Is In Ise.
Everywhere up the Volga and Its
hundred tributaries ascend the Iron
barges of the Caspian sea oil fleet,
while through the canals to St. Peters
burg alone pass annually during the
213 days of free navigation thousands
of steamers and barges bearing mil
lions of Ions of freight. Every known
means of locomotion Is used, from
men who, like oxen, tramp the tow
paths, hauling the smaller barges, to
iwwerful tugs that creep along by
means of an endless chain laid in the
bed of the canals and minor rivers,
dragging after them at snail pace great
caravans of heavy barges.
From the greater streams Immenso
craft nearly 400 feet long, 13 feet In
depth, carrying G,00O tons of freight,
drift down to the Caspian, where they
are broken to pieces to be used as fire
wood on the steamers going up stream.
In all there are S.000 miles of naviga
ble waterways in the valley of the Vol
ga, or If the streams which float the
giant rafts that form so large a part of
the traffic of the rivers are Included
the mileage Is increased to nearly 13,
000, or as much as that of the valley of
Fifty thousand rafts are floated
down the Volga anuually, many of
them 1G0 feet long by 7 thick, and this
gives but n faint Idea of the real traffic
of the river, for In addition there are
10.000.000 tons of produce passing up
and down the river during the open
season. Much of this centers at Kijnl
Novgorod. To this famous market
steamers and barges come from - all
parts of Itussln, bringing goods to be
sold at the great annual fair, over
J'JOO.OoO.Oi! worth of merchandise
changing hands in a few weeks. Thir
ty thousand craft. Including rafts, are
required for this traffic. They come
from as far north as Archangel, as far
east as the Urals, from Astrakhan in
the south, St. Petersburg and Moscow
to the west, while great caravans of
ships of the desert arrive dally from
nil parts of Asia. Engineering Maga

weighing scarcely more than 130
pounds, but he knew how to handle
a scythe, anil, as he told me, with a lit

than that, the man who had thought
he could beat the I "arson at mowing

working with such a pacemaker."
The Worst I'ave-tl City.
Moscow Is probably the worst pav
ed city in the world. Great cobble
stones driven by hand Into a loose bed
of sand form a roadway which Is al
ways dusty in summer and muddy In
autumn, and in many of the roads
there is no attempt at a roadway of
any kind. The streets are badly wa
tered and cleaned.
The city Is regarded by the Russians
as "the holy city," probably because of
the large number of monasteries It con
tains. It was once the capital of the
empire and still enjoys the distinction
of being considered the capital of the
Interior, but there does not seem to be
any particular desire on the part ot
the authorities to make it more worthy
of its title.

THE OCEAN SCORCHER.
He Mho Bracts Abont How Many
Tlmri He Has "lrosed."
The ocean scorcher, the woman or
man who was forever bragging about
how many times he had "crossed," is,
thank heaven, on the decrease. Fash
Ion has at last set the seal of her dis
approval on him, and he is rapidly be
coming obsolete. The fashion is now
never to mention the uumlK-r of times
one has been to Europe. "The last lime
I was over' is the way to refer to an
over the water experience If you wish
to be In the vogue. Of course you uiny.
if you truthfully can, say "the time be
fore last I was over" or "the tenth time
1 crossed" or "during my seventh trip
through Kurope." but a great majority,
you will tind. say "the last time I was
over." It Is safer when one has been
over but once.
I'in ninny of these travelers so fond
of relating their European experiences
down to the figures, and you will find
that "the last time I was over" bears a
close relation to the little boy who said
he was next to the head of his class,
to have it transpire later that the class
consisted of himself and a little girl.
"The last time I was over" may, like
as not, have lieen the first. Still any
thing Is better than the ocean scorcher
and his bragging. To him it didn't
matter where he hadn't been or what
he hadn't seen or anything, but simply
how many times he had crossed.
The one time on record that any one
was knowu to get ahead of these
scorchers was when a lot of them were
sitting swapping lies on a certain
steamship deck and a nonscorcher, hav
ing learned that the star scorcher's rec
ord was 1S8 runs, remarked, "There's a
man on board who has crossed Mifl
times." Then, as the excitement caused
by the news somewhat subsided: "He's
never been anywhere except to the two
ports Liverpool and New York. He's
nver seen anything, he's never done
anything, but Just cross the ocean fi'fl
times he's the ship's barber." New
lie Hacked Off His Lrg.
Caught In a bear trap on the banks
of the Athabasca, near Milford, Me.,
John McLeod, a lumber scaler, was
obliged to take out his Jackknlfe and
cut off his leg. The trap was too heavy
to move and was sprung iu such a way
that he could not reach over and re
lease it. lie was far from any human
being, and the only way out of it seem
ed to be to cut off tbe leg.
That was done vastly, because the leg
upon which he operated was of wood.
Hot when he stumped back to camp it
made him mad to hear the Jeers of the
French-Canadian cook of the lumber
"Why you no take ofif you whole
wood lalg. ah? You get out um thrap
and no spile you wood lalg 'tall, ah?"
Such a way out of his difficulty had
not occurred to JicLeod.pe'ore.
