At last, unable to listen longer to
the heartless talk of her relatives,
she left the stateroom and stood in
the cabin outside. She was the e

"I was going to Newport," hesaid,
"but changed my mind, and will

"That is kind of you," murmured
Nina, trying hard to appear confused.
After dinner Mr. Stewart escorted
the ladies to the deck and made him

A Vatuable Metal.
The discovery of deposits of plat
inumi in this country would be as
welcome as the un ding of a diamond
mine. At present the metal costs
naaly half as much as gold, having
risen greatly in price within the last
three years. It is abs lutely indis.
pensable for many purposes, being
non corrosive and resisting a ids. it
is utilized for chemical apparatus,
s'ientiflc instruments and incandes
tent lamps. There is some platinum
in the teach sands of Oregon, but
not enoug~h to pay for mining. Small
guantities of it have been discovered
recently in the copper mines of Can
ada, where it occurs in a new com
bination with arsenic. i
Two-thirds of the world's supply of
platinum comes from two Siberian
mines in the Ural Mountains. The
metal is obtained there as a by pro

Where Women Gamble.
rambling is a vice which is gener
ally associated with men rather than
women and one which the fair sex
rarely, it is supposed, Indulges in.
Of late years, however, women in
New York have engaged in gambling
so extensively that one of the most
splendid resorts in that city is a gam
bling house fitted up exclusively for
women's use. It Is a four-story brown
stone front and after ringing the'
bell the visitor is admitted to the
vestibule. Here she is met by a col

Sue," who carefully scrutinizes her.
If the visitor is found all right she

Best Butter Producer.
A comparison of the yields of di
:esti ble matter produced by mangels,
ugar beets and silage corn when
~rown under similar conditions, and
LIso a comparison of the merits of
oots and silage for the production of
niik and butter, was recently made
t the Penny'slvania experiment sta
ion, with the following result: In a
eeding trial involving two lots of
le cows each, and covering three
periods of twelve days, 100 pounds of
iigestible matter in the silage ration
produced 131.92 pounds of milk and
. 21 pounds of butter, while an equal
amiount of digestible dry matter in
the form of roots produced 137.36
pounds of milk, and 6.53 pounds of
butter-a difference in the butter of
10.4 per cent, But when the two
lots of cows were fed alike on a com
bination ration of beets and silage,
the silage lot produced, per 100
pounds of digestible matter con
sume d. 130 pounds of milk and 6.79
)ouds1 or butter, and the roots lot
10 1.ounds of milk and 6.46 pounds
of butter, thus showing an apparent
uperi rity of the ccws constitut
iog the silage lot. When this is
taken account of, it leaves a net gain
in feeding value of the s'lage over
the roots of 5 per cent. The cost of
n acre of beets is $56.07, while thit

Mrl~y prov~es that the latter is Dot
