"You needn't make a burden of it

"Dear old lady! I'd do almost any
thing for her. You may count on me,
Ethel. When shall we begin now?"
"Certainly not. There's no necessity.
We'll begin the next time we're with
During that next time the invalid
noticed a marked tenderness on the
part of John Kathbone and an embar
rassed expression on the face of Ethel.
As soon as the mother and daughter
were alone there were questionings that
added to the girl's embarrassment, to
which unsatisfactory answers were
given, and she seemed rather unhappy
than happy, but her mother knew that
love was something of a malady and
believed that matters had come round
as she desired. She had little or noth
ing to leave Ethel when she died, and
this fact had been keeping her In a
gloomy condition, adding to her ail
ments. From the moment she made up
her mind that Ethel would pass under
the care of John Rathbone and be sup
ported by his ample income she ceased
to worry and consequently got better.
"John," said Ethel one day, "next
week comes, the 1st of January. Moth
er instead of passing away from us by
that time, as the doctor feared she
would, has quite recovered. Now, this
deception has been very hard on me,
and for some time I've been summon
ing my resolution to make a confession.
The beginning of the new year is an
especial season for making fresh starts,
you know, and I've been thinking that
we might tell mother the true 6tate of
affairs on New Year's day."
"You're right, Ethel. I don't like de
ception myself even if for a good pur
pose. New Year's day would be a very
appropriate time to make the confes
sion, and I can lighten the blow some
what by making you a present to show
that anyway I think a great deal of
"Only don't let it be an expensive
one. Kather show j-our kindly feel
ings for me by your manner."
"Leave that to me. I know how to
net. Haven't I done very well through
the trying ordeal?"
"Y-es; you've deceived mother, and
that's all that was required."
"On New Year's day I shall have an
other confession to make, to you as
trell ns to your dear mother."
The girl paled. "You're engaged?"
"But expect to be."
"Kather I hope to be."
"Who is the girl?"
"This won't do. I'm to make this
confession on the 1st of January. I
don't care to make it prematurely.";
And he turned and left her. -t
Ethel strove to conceal from her
mother the blow, she bad received at
his announcement till the first day of
iih? year, but it was impossible. The
t Richard T. Capron
by C. N. Lurie
mother saw that she was distressed
and inferred that there had been a
break between those she had supposed
to be lovers. At last Ethel concluded
to leave her with this supposition, be
lieving that it would lighten her disap
pointment at the dreaded confession.
New Year's day opened bright and
beautiful, with the mercury down
among the small figures. At 11 o'clock
In the morning John Itathbone called.
Ethel before taking him to her moth
er's room led him into the library.
"John," she said, "I don't think it
necessary for you to double mother's
disappointment by telling her of this
engagement of yours."
"I'm not engaged."
"Well, this affair, whatever it is. Eet
us make our confession today, and you
can tell her of your happiness later.
Besides, I fancy she is not so certain
as she was that it is settled between
you and me. Still, I see no necessity
for forcing too much upon her at once."
"It is very thoughtful of you, Ethel,
but I want to have it all over at once."
"As you will. Perhaps I'd better
make our confession."
"I should think it would' come with
a better grace from me."
"You will be embarrassed in fistnjftig,
as j-our native honesty will lend'yc
to state, that the proposal to deceive
came from you. You will stumble over
this point and make a botch of the

"You will always have that privi
Ethel led the way to her mother's
room. The old lady was seated before
a blazing wood tire, the flames of
which danced and glistened on a pair
of old fashioned brass andirons. John
took one of her hands and Ethel the
other. Then they both kissed her,
wishing her "a happy New Year."
After a few remarks appropriate to the
day John began the confession.
"Mother, dear" it was the first time
he had thus addressed her "Ethel and
I have done very wrong. We are going
to confess on this lirst day of the new
year and resolve to do wrong no more.
We have been leading you to think
that we are engaged. We are not. It
was all done to help you to get well. I
have another confession to make for
myself alone. I am very much in love
with Ethel and ask your permission to
pay my addresses to her."
The old lady looked bewildered, and
Ethel's face dropped on to the arm of
her mother's chair. Then a reply came
to John's request.
"You have my consent."
"Ethel, you hear what your mother
says. Will you lie my wife?"
Ethel without raising her head
stretched her hand across her mother to
"And here." ho continued, "is a New
Year's gift I have brought as evidence
of my 'kindly feelings' for you."
He slipped a solitaire diamond ring
on her finger. There were a few mo-

"And so I am, doubly ashamed of

DEVELOPING PLANS FOR
CAMPBELL ISLAND RESORT
It has been officially decided by the
Mississippi Valley Traction company
that the development of Campbell's
island as a summer resort will be
taken up in the spring regardless of
all the other pi ans the successor of
the Moline, East Moline & Watertowii
internrban have in mind for future
extensions. The building of the bridge
t; the island now under way further
emphasizes the plans of the new con
tn Ming company. The bridge work
is well along, but at present it is at a
standstill owing to the high water re
sulting from the gorge at this point.
The company has already ordered
plans for the building of a pavilion
which will sit among the trees prob
ably :n the river side of the island.
The electric fi lintnin fi-iun

nection with the pavilion. The attack
on me vu licit v of the transfer of the
old company which has been made by
Messrs. Hord and Keator will not af
fect the company's plans.
AUskto Uoondary Decided.
The recent decision of the Alaskan
boundary commission upholds all of
the American contentions, except the
possession of the Portland canal and
some islands in its vicinity. The de
cision of prominent physicians every
where upholds the claim made in re
gard to Uostetter's Stomach Bitters,
that it is the best medicine ever com
pounded for stomach, liver and kid
ney ills. This popular decision is sec
onded by thousands of persons who
have been cured of dyspepsia, indiges
tion, headache, biliousness, insomnia,
constipation, chills, colds or malaria,
fever and ague. Women, too, join in
praising the Bitters as a tonic, regu
lator and health builder. Be sure to
give it a trial, and get a free copy of
our l'JOt almanac from your druggist.'
