PICKENS S. C.
F"ift y-Ninie...
Theodore and I hadI been tralpiiig
about lalifax all day. We had pulled
our feet fromi the asphalt pavements
for the sun was hot; we had toiled to
the wiud.slapped citadel, and gazed at
Dartmouth, gleam1in1g white across the
water, and watched the seething foam
in the far haze at the harbor entrance.
We had sneered at the gowns of the
women, and had been stared at by the
nonkey-clad privates. We had praye(l
in the dusk of St. Mary's, and driven
through the gardens, and oven out the
Bedford Basin road for a few miles.
I had dragged 'T'heodore to moth-eaten
shops and boul-ht vile candy and acted
generally in what Theodore calls my
i Amerilan girl" m1anne'. There was
a touch of the spring-time weariness
Upon mIe when wce got back to the
Halifax liouse, with spare time in
which to dre-, lor dinner. It was
early in May, mnCh too soon for the
tourists, and every person, not a Troy
to their linger tips, was spotted in the
hotel. That is the reason that Ted
and 1, when we Wtent into the dining
room were imme.iiatt-iy taken over to
a table where ahreatly two people sat
waiting for their dinner. The girl was
an American. That. nucl --and 110
more--I knew. ''he man- Now,
Theodore had 'o)me to Canaula on busi
ness, and I hua at oilpalied himln in
the hope of meeting the very man, who
sat talking in his u it uticing style,
to an titter stranger, not live feet
away.
I had meant to be so :,rentle with Tom
Merrill when I met hi, for the last
time 1 hal seen him, I had refused,
with great haughtiness, to ac'onpaniy
him, as a loving wife antI helpmate, to
this end of the world. After six
months of abject misery, though I was
quite willing-- -to have himli ask me
agaim. It gave mhe an unreasonable
pang to see how well be looked and I
put on my most di'nitied air as he pre
sented the girl, whose highly interest
ing conversation had been broken uponl
by our entrance.
I loathed that gill before 1 met her.
I knew, before she opened her lips, 1
that she would talk through her nose
-and she did. 'he was a native of I
some mountain village in 1'ensyivauia I
and her reason for leinlg so far from
home was- -business. In a few min- I
utes wo had her history, and knew i
that she was a bookkeeper in the Inost I
up-to-date hardware shop in IIalifax.
She had met Tom on one of his trips
to Halifax, antd seemed to know him
very well ie l'ed. At least, she called
him "Tom," and looked at him as
though he belonged to her, aiit acted
altogether disgracefully.
"Tom and I were just tdiscussing
the suicide,'' said Miss Reynolds as we
began our soup. " You have heard of
it, of course"'
"Ni)," 1 rephed untr'uthfully, I
knew all about it. but I wan teditolhear
her talk sime more. There was a

hall from rarne. It' a uLpposedl to be
haunted now.'
" It must have iinnei'ved you. Were
you here when she dlied?" asked Thieo
dore, with the first glow of interest ho
had displayed. .Dear old chicken. Hie
never bothers with-some girls.
"1 0, dear niol" said Miss Reynolds.
"1I was at the ollico, and indeed, I had
my room changed at once. I couldn't
bear to be near the place. In fact, I
couldnr't sleep at all in my room."
It was nothing except a spiteful de
sire to beat the girl, to dlo sometinig
she was afraid to do that made me re
ply like a boastful child: " I abouldn't'
be afraid to sleep in number 59. 1
think L'll have my things moved to
night.'
Tom Merrill raised his eyebrows,
and looked at me steadily for a mo
ment. I saw by3 Teddie's expression
that he was plainly aware of my in
tention, and also aware of his incom
patibIlity to cope with his adored and
very much spoiled sister. " Well," at
last, I enqjuired, as Tom still staredl at
me, " do you think I'm afraid, Mr.
Merrgl?"
" No,'' said that youiig man slowly,
and with emphasis. " I don't think
you are."
Miss Re~ynolds looked her supreme
acorn and unbelief. "111(deed, it's all
very well to talk that way," she saidi
" but when it comes down to the thing,
I'm quite sure you would baek down.
There Isn't any woman I know who
has nerve enough to sleep in No. 69."
" Oh," I rippled out quite Sweetly,
" but you see you don't know me,. or
any of any friends. Wouldn't Bletty
Parker or T'ill Bliss just give theor
'very souls for this chance, Theodore?"
" Margaret," ' replied Ted, and
knew he wanted to be strict. He al
ways tries to be when he forgets t<
to call nme Peg, " I don't like you t<
talk this way. You haven't any idea
I hope, of carrying out this absurd
scheme?"
Now, I might have given up the
idea, but just at that moment Miss
Iteynol(s, who had apparently forgot
ten that we were there looked down at
Tom's hand, idly crumbling bread
crumbs on the white cloth, and archly
said : " I must have my ring, Tom.
All my luck has flown to the winds
since 1 gave it to you. I botched half
a dozen things today."
I must be heathen at. heart, for I
felt, at that moment, exactly like tak
ing my lish knife, and slowly sawing
that wretched girl's throat with it.
But, instead, 1 dimpled amid replied,
with my best grade of coax, " 'Tiddle
wink, please have my things sent over
to No. 5I. That's where I'm going to
sleep tonight." And then I looked at
Tom Merrill, sitting across the table,
with a girl's ring on his linger. labI
but he had grown cotmmon in his tastes
since 1 had denied hin, a wife. I won
der if he knew what miy eyes said?
Miss Reynolds laughed outright
when she heard ily order. "(11iou
can't make mile believe that you will go
into that suicide's room, with its hor
rible associations and sleep tonight.
You'll get out of it some way or other.
You brave, high-spirited girls always
do in the end. I'<d much rather tell
the truth and be safe."
''om and Teddie saw some humor in
her remark, and Ton added insult to
injury by quietly suggesting that there
was probably a secret passage built for
adventurous American beauties.
And then Toni and 'fed talked of the
steel industry, and Tom asked m1e
about the girls at tiome, and I utterly
refused to be enticed into giving him
my of the thousand and one delight
ful messages that had been sent, to
lomn. Miss Iteynol(s and I finished
Air dinner ill polite Cuommonplaces,
while she took in every detail of my
ostutme. She had been im Jlalifax
'our months, and her neck fixings amid
.he way she wore her hair showed it.
As we passed out of the (ining-room
t'heodore asked me if I really meant
vhat I said. Alise Rleynolds laughed
loubtingly, and , heard ''om say to
ler: ''1 can't believe that she his
erve enough to do it. (ee whiz- -
'tnd the li he stopped, for I was watch
dim straight and level, with blazing
yes.
I icked a piece of lint. fromt miy gray
kirt, before I replied to Theodore:
I am going to sleep in No. .
L'eddie Coulson, and you know it,
vithout asking me.''
So my things were sent to No. 5,U
nd we all tollowed the ~boy, through
lie old- fashioned parlor, and the queer i
ittle conservatory, and out the long
sall, overlooking the harbor. The boy
lamimed open the door and threw my
>ags down in No. 5i, while 1 stood
dly at the low window watching the
liekering white eye in the mouth of
he ocean. A soft-voiced maid brought
is chairs, and we sat at the broad win
low in the hall until eleven o'clock.

>arlor, and those weirdl works of art
udorning the mantels. A ponderous
valnut bed stoodin one11 coi ner of the
'oomn. At the side was a smiall ire
lace, now clean and brushed of the
oll-tale a4hes. Over b)y tile window,
vbere the gray light from the sea
utruggledl through in the early dawni
tood a huge bureau. I went and1(
ooked at myself in tihe glass. And
,hen a horrid fear crept upon01 me. tin
ler my feet stretched a great rug, miuchi
too large for the room, ando pushed0(
imder the legs of the bed t.o get rid of
the extra corners. I did not dlare look
Linder t,he rug! Instead of my own
race, young and heavy-eyed wit,h
sleep I seemed to see the wretched
::ountenance of another woman, alone,
md sinking t.o an agonized death by
her own hand. I mnovedl from the
spot. If the mirror hadl helped ini the
doing of the evil deed(, th e rug was
guilty of' hidimg tihe dark stains.
I remiember thinking of everything
in a hazy way. I was very unhappy,
but fell asleep at my prayers, and
finally chimbed into the great bed, to
slide through three thousand miles of
heavy, stohdo slumber.
It was early in the morning when 1
awoke. Too early for the dawn t,o
show. It Was raining, too, and the
windl howled about tIhe corners of the
roof, like an enormous man who was
ill. It was a small soundo that brought
me cloar-minded, and keen-earedt to my
senises. A gurgling slop, 8101), some1
thing thick like blood. Weirdl and
bumbhng, the noise grew nearer. Then
sU(ldlen, uncanny, horrible, I heard my
heart boats in twos and threes-wit,h
startling jumps. My hair si,ood on

room with me-was something! Some
thing white andl long andl lean, commng
nearer and nearer wit,h a beast,ly 8101),
slop, gurgle and bubble of b)l00d. 1
remember of wondering why there was
so much blood in a bullet wound. God
in heaven! the thing was coming to
ward me. It fumbled with the covers,
striving to. turn them uip from the
bottom. Livid fear held me, tongue
tied andl trembling, to the bed. And
then something in me broke at the
sound of the figure's voice. (Clear and
golden, English all over, .came the
beautiful modulated tones: " Dear
me, but I have had the trouble this
night. My feet like ice, and never a
bit of hot water. This water :will never
get them back to their prqe tte, I
have a mind to rne, the y'prietor."
I sat bolt upright with a serbamn of
laughter. The old lady, for such she
was, turned a ghastly face, upon me.

1 may say to you, my brotheritag
that I am not an edicated .man, an'
am not one of them as believes that
edication is necessary for a gospel
minister, for I believe the Lord ed
icates Iis prt,achers jest as lie wants
'em to be edicated; an' although I say
it that oughtn't to say it, yet in the
State of Indianny, where I live, thar's
no man as gets bigger congregations
nor what I gits.
Thar may be some here today, my
brethering, as don't know what per
suasion I am uv. Well, 1 must say to
you, my brethering, that im a Hard
Shell Baptist. 'T'har's some folks as
don't like the Ilard Shell Baptists, but
I had rather have a hard shell ias no
shell at all. You see me here today,
my brethring, dressed up in good
clothes; you mout think I was proud,
but, I am not proud, my brethring, and
although I have been a preacher of the
gospel for twenty years, an' although
I'm capt'in of the flat boat that lies at
your landing, I'm not proud, my
brethring, ah.
I am not gwine to tell edzactly whar
mly text may be found; sullice it, t.o say
it is in the leds of the Bible, and you'll
Iiul it somlewhere between the first
chaptet of the book of Generations,
and the last chapter of the book of
Itevolutions, and of you will go and
search the Scriptures; you'll not only
find my tex thar, but a great many
other texes as will do you good t1 read,
and my tex, when you shall limd it,
you shall find it to read thus, al:
" And he played on a harp of a thou
sand strings---sperits of jest muen made
perfeck."
My tex, my brethei ing, leads me to
speak of sperits. Now, thar's a great
many kinds of sperits in the world-in
the fuss place, thar's the sperits some
folks call ghosts, and thar's the Sperits
of terpentine, and thmr's the sperits as
some folks call liquor, and I've got as
good an artikel of them kind of sperits
on my flat boat as ever was foch down
the Mississippi river; but. thar's a great
many other kin(is of sperits, for the
Lex says: " lie played on a harp of a
t-h-o xi-s-and strings, sperits of jest
men made perfeck." And thar's a
great many kinds of fire in the world.
.In the fuss place thar's the common
sort of fire, and then there's foxlire,
and camphire, fire before you are
ready and fire and fall back and many
other kinds uv lire, for the tex says,
" lie played on the harp of a thou
sand strings, sperits of jest men made
perfeck."
But I'll tell you the kind of fire as
is spoken of in the Bible, my brethring,
is loiel l"ire! and that's the kind of
lire as i great many of you'll come to
of you don't do loot.tter ner what you
have been doin'-- -for " lie pla ed on a
harp of a thousand strings, sperits uv
jest men made p?rfeck." And that's
the kind of fire you can't dodge, my
brethring, al, for it's the fire that
won't he quenched. You may fly to
the mountains of IIepsidam, where the
woodbine twineth and the lion roareth
and the whangadoodle mourneth for
its first born, but, you can't hide from
the unsquenchable fire, for it is the
lire of hell andl damnation, all I "1 And

The I)partment of Agriculture is
preparing to fight the ravages of the
San Jose scale throughout the eountry
with its natural enetuy, the ladybug,
brought for the interior of China.
Assistant Blotanist Miarlatt has just
returned from the Orient, where he
sought the original home of the dread
ed scale. Far in the interior of the
latter country, where European plants
have not penetrated, he foun id the scales
and also the ladybugs, which keep the
scales in subjection and permit the
native plants to flourish. Mr. Marlatt
started home with a good supply of
these ladybugs, but only sixteen sur
vived on arrival in this country, and
lourteen of them subsequently died.
1'he two remaining, however, were
nursetd carefully by the government,
with.a view to lighting the ccale ;n the
mine manner as in China. There are
atot lifty of themi, requiring the con.
ttant gathering of scales from the de
)artment grounds for food. While not
"xpecting the scales to he extei tninat
d from this country, experts are
)lanning to attack them with the in
.reasing breed of their natural enemies.
