learned by his own uillooked for ex

madness Is oil them, he would have

A cousin Inclined to net as bo was

the CbnilgO in himself, was startled
nnd shamed by it. Nevertheless lit) ,
would have persevered, trampling
down every obstacle that roso in his
way, if only the girl had seen things .
with his eyes.
She had accused him of Insulting
her, not stopping to consider that even

Tliis being the ease, with Helen
Mowbray as ins morganatic wife,
there could be no direct heir to tho
throne. At his death the son of his
uncle, the Archduke Joseph, would
succeed, and during his life the popu
larity which was dear to him would
be hopelessiy forfeited. Khaotla would
never forgive him for selfishly prefer
ring his own private happiness to the
good of the nation.
He could fancy how old Iron Heart
von Breltstein WOllld present this point
of view to him with fierce cloqtioticc,
temples throbbing like tin? ticking of n

veins. Mut, on the other band, he could

But now tho will Which had borne
dim through life In a triumphal march
had been powerless against that of
this young girl. She would have none
of him. A woman whoso face was her
fortune, whose place In life was hard
ly as high as the fust step of a throne,
bad refused- tin Olliporor!
Hardly COUld Leopold believe the
thing that had happened to him. Ho
find spoken of doubting that he had
won her love, and ho bad doubted.
Hut he had allowed himsolf to hope,
becauso he had COllfldonco In his star
and because perhaps It bad scarcely
been known in the annals of history
that an emperor's suit should be ro
BOSldOS, he had loved the girl so pas
slonately that It seemed sin; could not
remain cold. And he hoped still that
when she had passed a long night in
reflection, in thinking over the situa
tion, perhaps taking counsel with that
comparatively commonplace yet prac
tical little lady, her mother, she might
be ready to change her mind.
For the first few moments after the
Btluglng rebuff he had endured Leo
pold felt that if she did It would be her
turn to suffer, for lie could never hum
ble himself to Implore for (he second
time. Hut as he stood in flic soft silli
ness of the uiglit, gazing toward the
lights of the house, thoughts of Vir
ginia- her youth, her sweetness, her
beauty dimmed with grief overwhelm
< d him. COUld he have reached her he
would bftVS fallen on bis knees and
kissed her gown.
By ami by a vast tenderness breath
ed its cnbn over the thwarted passion
in his breast, and (dans to win her
back came w hispering In his ear. He
would wrlto a letter and send It to her
room. Hot. no; perhaps It WOUld l>e
wise to give her n longer Interval for
roflectlOU and, It might be, regret. To
morrow he would see her and Khow
nil the depths of that great love which
she bed thought to throw away. She
could not go on withstanding htm for
ever, and, now that he had burned his
boats behind blm, he would never
think of turning back. He would per
severe till she should yield.
Meanwhile Virginia had hurried
blindly toward the house, and It was
Instinct rather than intention that led
her to the open window of the music
room, by which she had come out.
Tears burned her eyelids, but they
did not fall until she stood once more
In tin? room where she and Leopold
had been happy togethor. There she
had sat at the piano, and he had bent
over her lOVC In Ids eves?honest love,
she had thought, her heart full of
thanksgiving. How little she had
guessed then the humiliation In store
for her and the end of all her hopes!
How could she bear her pain, and how.
could she go on living out her life?
She paused In the window niche,
looking lido the room through n mist
of tears, and a sob choked her. "Cruel,
cruel!" she whispered. "What agony,
what an Insult!"
'then, dashing nwny her tears, slio
pushed back the dark curtains and
would have passed on Into the room
had not the quick gesture brought her
arm Into contact with the buttons and
gold braid on a man's breast.
Instantly she realized that some one
was hiding there, some one dressed In
a military coat, and her first linpulso
was for (light, anything to escape un
recognized. But on second thoughts
she changed her mind.
Whoever It was had In all probabili
ty hidden himself for the purpose of
spying and was already nwnre that
Miss Mowbray had rushed into the
house weeping after a tete-a-tete with
the emperor In the garden. Perhaps ho
had even caught a word or two of her
Robbing ejaculation. No; she must not
run away and leavo the outcome of
this affair to chance. She must seo
with whom sbo had to deal that she
might know what was best to do.
SllO had taken a step Into the room,
but quick ns light she turned, pulled
away the screen of curtains and faced
Captain von Hreltsteln.
It was a trying moment for him, and
the girl's look stripped him of all his
light audacity. She had come to the
window by a different path from the
one be had watched; therefore she had
taken him unawares beforo he had
time to escape, as lie had planned. He
was caught fairly nod must savo him

If her reproach forestalled his ex

was no time to weigh words. lie must

said. "1 see you think I was watching

If Virginia's eyes had l>een daggers
he would have fallen at her feet pierc
ed to the henrt. For one loug second
Mic looked at him without speaking,
her face eloquent. Then she went by
him with the proud bearing of a queen.
Rgon was stricken dumb. Dully he
watched her move across the room to
a door which led into a corridor. He
heard the whisper of her satin dress
and saw the changing lights and shad
ows ou its creamy folds under the
crystal chandeliers; ho saw the white
reflection, like a spirit, mirrored deep
linder the polished surface of the floor.

CHARGE TO JURY
BY NOTED JUDGE
Emminent Representative of Judiciary
Assigns Whisky as Cause of Crime.
Tulsa, I. T., Dec. 12.- Judge Louis
Sulzbacher, presiding in the Western
district of the United States court for
Indian Territory, held court last week
at Sapulpa for the first time since his
appointment. His charge to the grand
jury is considered as one of the most
remarkable documents overissued from
the bench of the territory. The charge
is extraordinary because of his striking
dramatic manner in which it was deliv
ered and the great scope of crimes
specified in its text.
The court called especial attention to
the increase in crime, and especially
did he show the terrors done while per
sons were under the influence of liquor
The following is the temperance lecture
delivered in the charge:
"Intemperance is one of the most de
testable vices cast upon the human
family, and any law prohibiting the use
of intoxicants should be welcomed and
supported in a community of peaceful
citizens to their utmost. Crimes have
been committed by these excesses, and
the annals of statistics establish the la
mentable certainty that* the origin of
crime in most casts was caused by the
turbulence of inebriation.
"Homes were made destitute; life
became unbearable to the faithful wife
and to the devoted mother, and children
were given a horrid example. Prison
cells were filled and the gallows exhib
ited its most terrific spectacle. Carry
out and apply this law to its farthest
and you will be considered as benefac
tors of this commonwealth.
"At the recent term of court at Mus
kogee I was present at a murder trial
which exhibited a crime of which hu
manity at this age should be Spared.
The times of torturo or torment, to
which we, at the present stage of civil
ization and enlightenment look back
with horror and consternation were re
"A man a human being - returned
to his home, to his fireside, at a late
hour; to the place where love and kind

harmless children. Their screams, their
tears, their entreaties but increased his

saturated the clothes and the person of
the companion of his life with that
combustible substance, the body of the
person to whom he swore before the
I altar of his Cod to love and to defend

cacy causes me to refrain from depict
ing, that monster ignited that holpl IS
"Imagine the despair, the shrieks of
that suffering woman ; the grief and the
distiess of tlie powerless babes, who
had to witness that brutality.
"The very fire would have relented '
its terror had not superior laws of ma
ture controlled its course. Tito very
flashes had they possessed voice woul i
have implored that monster to <?

his caresses, one who bore the childr? n
to whom he gave existence, i-i more

"The woman died after several days
of endurance of anguish and excrucia

cation was the sole factor of this horrid
crime. There was no doubl the man
was drunk. He was ably defended, and
rarely during a long life of experience
did I listen to a more ardent plea for a
client, and his plea was that the stafc
of his intoxication was to such an ex
traordinary degree that he had lost all
reason. Such conditions are to some
extent a defense, but, be this as it may,
banish liquor, prevent its sale and in

made and your criminal dockets will bo

Importance of Teaching Drawing in Our
Miss Italic Mosoley, who taug! I
drawing in the Summer school hoi ?
has prepared an interesting article f
The Advertiser on the importance of!
teaching drawing in our schools. She
So many people have the wrong im
pression of the uses of drawing in our i
public schools. They seems to think
that its only aim is to make a pretty
drawing or picture and its educational
value ends there. How little do i\
realize that it is one of the fundamen
tal studies, and it is just as important
in the development of a child's life and
mind in fields of usefulness as number
and language work.
Drawing is one ot the oldest and
plest ways of expressing thought. It.
j is a language that is common to ail na
tions and has been from time immemo
rial. It was the principal medium used
by the ancient Egyptians in handing
down to tho present generation their
ideas and customs. One of its chief
aims in public school work is to Ii !??
the child gain and express ideas nnd
thoughts through drawing as well as by
It is much easier for a child to gel
knowledge by seeing from than by !:? ar
ing about it. If a toachor Iris a good
knowledge of drawing and can mnko a
picture of what he or she wishes to
teach or represent, the child can grasp
it much more readily than by tell! ?
him of the same in words.
'Tis sad but true that there is a \
ful lack of skill on the side of the above
average teacher of today in the use of
drawing. The writer has talked with
teachers throughout this fair Southland
and the complaint comes from all that
they cannot draw, but feel the need of
same so badly in every line of their
school work; all say it. would be so
j much easier for them to tea h if they
could only draw,
What is the cause and how can '.hi;:
deficiency in our education be overcome?
j The principal reason is that teachers
1 have not been trained to draw as they
have been trained to read and write.
If the same attention had been given
to their drawing as to other studies
they would bo just as skillful In the one
as the other, for drawing is the natural
medium through which a child ex
presses his ideas. The picture of tho
idea appeals to all children. The r<im
cdy: Let us see to it that the rein;1,
generation of today does not miss nor
neglect this all-important step in their
education, for tho children of today
will be our men and women of tomor
Aside from the skill tho child gains in
the use of his hands and mind to work
simultaneously. Drawing, above all
other studios, helps to develop the per
ceptive quulities of the child?as to
form, size, weight, color, observation
and the creative faculties, as original
ity, constructiveness and ideality, and
last lau not least, the highest of all?
the (esthetic or love of the beautiful
in ai l and nature- and thereby brings
one into a closer touch with Him who
made all things for our pleasure and
L ' us consider some of the uses of
drawin, in our everyday life outside of
liool room. Suppose we discard
iwing from the United States. Do
you realize that all manufacturing
would cease, also all building, from our
grcal railroads to the common little
cabin? For every manufactured arti
cle, and even the machinery on which
they are made, must be planned and
draw", ere 'tis manufactured, and the
same i < true of railroads and houses be
fore they are built. 'The inventor al
ways oxpresses the ideas of his inven
tion in drawing ere he has it patented.
have often said Iiqw drawing
Ipa them in the making of the plan
of teeth for their patients. It is a great
help '.?> nurses and doctors in studying
construction of the body and also
in making sketches of the fractured
parts of some of their patients for fu
turo reference. And things that ap
peal strongly to the feminine sex
styles the laiest m gown and millinery
must 1k> designed and drawn ere they
are given to the public.
Drawing helps in every profession
and walk of life and one can readily see
li a knowk dge of same would open
new avenues to success in a financial
way which would otherwise be denied
one deficient in this branch.
