PICKENS S. C.
---..A i?otlier Love
A tall man in light rain coat. and a
neutral-tinted girl climbed the steps of
a red sione mansion. The house look
ed to be untenanted. The halls echoed
with unfurnished nudity as the two en
tered. They walked familiarly into an
oblong room, which was as barren as
the hall, with the exception that it
contained a small imitation mahogany
table and two uncertain chairs.
The girl laughed half hysterically as
she removed her hat and sat lown,
resting both elbows on the table.
" Our den of thieves seems remark
ably fit this evemnig, (ear. It chimes
in with my mood. Perhaps it's be
cause this is the last time."
The man stared moodily at the white
wall. " So you mean what you say;
you are going to quit?"
The girl went rather white and nod
led her head. "( It's the only thing we
can d0; you must ece that. I can't
live this way, with turbulent quarrels
and tempestuous reconciliations. I
can't (to it. It's better to end it--bet
ter for both of us. You couldn't make
things right, and somehow 1 seem to
have developed a conscience of late."
The man tapped a call bell on the
table and a diminutive Chinaman am
bled through the open door. The man
and the woman ordered chop sooy and
" See here, Ialhe, I can't stand
this." The man's face was smooth
and boyish, but it was lined with
emotion as he spoke.
" I can't live without you. Think of
all we have been to each other for two
years. Why did I leave all the set I
knew and take the flat with our little
red parlor, if it wasn't to see more of
you? Do you remember our Sunday
luncheons when you would come out
early and make those wonderful dishes
on our little gas stove? You couldn't
reach up to fasten the tubes on the gas
jet, and I always had to lift you--"
" Yes," she interrupted, eagerly,
"and how clumsy you were and how
you used to crumple my clean shirt
waist. And do you remember when
old Eben, the janitor, would come in
with the beer, he would stop and talk
when we were (lying f r him to go?
How many pirates did he say he had
killed with one shot-forty?"
They both laughed.
" Yes, and that night you thought
you were going to be fired from the
paper and wanted a 'scoop'; how we
had burglars in the building and went
out and treated the policeman on the
beat so he would swear to it? have
you got the olicial belt buckle that he
gave you? Al, but those were good
old days I Iallie, how can you forget
All enthusiasm (ied from her face as
-- his words brought her back to the
present. She sat uip very st,raight.
"At first," she aaid slowly, "1 just
loved you and never t.hought of any
thing else. I went on and on, and
gradually I couldn't see my future.
Always before I thought 1 would be
something of a writer. But after you
came I always seemed to see you in
stead of success. Perhaps if I had be
longed to some one, you would not
have filled every crevice as you did;
but I didn't, you know. There wasn't
a soul who cared, unless it was the
people to whom I paid my board. And
then after a while---God, can't you
see? You went on telling me that,you
loved me and couldn't live without me,
but st,ill you did not say a word ab)out
-about making things right. And all
the time I knew that no one could
love you as I loved you. And yet
that awful dread began to come over me
of the ultimate woman-the woman
you must meet, some day."
" Hallie, child, he broke out impet
uously, " it isn't my fault. I swear it
isn't. You don't understand."
" Oh, yes," she sighed wearily, " 1
do understand and that, is what gives
me the strength to break with you."
The lit,tle, one-sided Chimaman
brought in the chop sc.oy and lighted a
single gas jet, which splutteredl from
the wind blowing through a broken
pane in the window. The int,erruption
in some ociult way seemed to place
them out of sympathy. The girl's
voice took on a serious tone. The
man grew impatient.
"1 have an engagement at 8 o'clock,"
she saidi suddenly. " We must be
going. Besides we gain nothing by
talking tings over."
They walked to the car. " This is
the first time yeou have ever left me
this way," he said1, as they stood on
the corner awaiting the approaching
tram. " Who is the man?"
" One of my ci aft, the new dIramatic
editor from New York."
" Oh, I see, arnd he is the cause of
your new departure?"
" I wish you prosperit,y, Miss Doyle.
This is your car, I believe. Shall I
ride down town with you?" He was
always most punctihious when about to
-lose his temper.
" No, Carl, It is better to part, now.
Good-bye, good-bye, Carl ." She
reached out her hand half pleadingly;
her resolution was wavering. If he
had spoken her name t,hen she would
have tuirnedl back; biut man like, he
remembered only her reference to the

WOMEN AS POUunTY IAISEs.
Women and hens have some traits in
ommon, and from a close observ
ion of the feathered fowl an aphoris
ic lore has sprung up which the un
und man uses with an open hand
vhen talking to his women folks. Row
)ften a short-tempered spouse tells his
vife that she looks like a wet hen;
,bat she cackles like a hen; that she
jumps about like a hon without her
)rood. These are but a few of the
barges flung at the head of the long
uffering wife. Whistling girls and
,rowing hens have been classed to
ether, and whore is the irreverent
nan who does pot call a gathering of
vomen a "lien party?"
Perhaps because they have some
itrango sympathetic bonds, or maybe
or some occult reason, too deep for
nan to fathom, women are and always
lave been extremely successful in the
)oultry business. In many households
n the suburbs of most large American
ities the woman of the house supplies
fcr own table with the fruits of her
)oultry yard. In not a few cases a good
rofit is made by selling the surplus
)roduct to neighbors.
It is one of the healthiest fads or oc
:upations that a woman can take up.
[he work entailed is very light; it is
:lean and it is full of delightful va
-iety that should charm the true fem-.
nine heart. Moreover, it is a very in.
xpensive fad to start. A few dollars
pent on erecting a coop and a wire
ence in which to keel) the fowls is all
he equipment needed. Then, with
few liens and a rooster and a setting
)f eggs, the poultry yard is ready to
start work.-Philadelphia inqiirer.
