cried the agent's hearty voice
hen he had carried the mail bags
up from the depot he had waited until
their contents were distributed. That
was not a long time. It never was in
Excelsior. And to-night the sacks had
not been of sutllcient weight to tax
hia strong shoulders. But out of their
lankness had come a surprise for him,
and an opportunity for Deronda.
"I can guess. It's a letter from
Uncle Donald. Acheck?"
Once in awhile, at Christmas al
ways, a letter inclosing a check ar
rived from Donald Bertram, of New
York. And his brother, who found his
spe.tty salary n& station master of the
insignificant Nebraska, town quite in
commensurate with the needs pf a
large and Increasing family, hailed the
advent of each inclosure with grati
tude and elation.
"N-o. It's a letter from Donald
but there's no check!" Ho looked
across at his best loved and eldest
child with a smile brighter than even
the welcome check had ever sum
moned. "Guess again '
She looked at him from her opposite
end of the table where she presided,
her mother in true western fashion j
still being busied at the kitchen stove '
until the remainder of her family had
eaten. Between Deronda and her
mtuci a uujBj auu vviauuu? jruuug
brood intervened eight or ten of
them. Deronda was kept busy attend
ing to their needs. She and her moth
er "did" for the rest. They ate as
their portion whatever was left. And
neither dreamed of complaining
Labor and service were their ethics
of domesticity But now Deronda
paused in her task of pouring out the
numerous cups of milk.
"Father! It's good news! Keep
still, Flora! What is it?"
The tidings came out in a rush. "If
you will go to New York for a visit
the check will follow your letter of aci
oeptance. .There!" .
Deronda was the healthiest girl in
town, but for the moment she felt
positively weak. She set down the
pitcher. The children clamored un
heeded. "O!" she gasped, "I must tell moth
erl" Then she was gone, and the orer
rrorked man with the kindly face
waited on the children himself.
Those that followed were exciting
days. The little, straggling, low
rooms over the depot were the scene
of many confabulations, much schem
ing, man glorious hopes, innumerable
pleasant prophecies. 'Bonda, as the
children called her, was going away
away into some vast and mystic fairy
land, which their vivid Imaginations
merged in the triple ecstasy of Yule
tide, Heaven and the Fourth of July.
But one day order was born of con
fusionsobriety of hysterical antici
pation. That was the day Deronda's
trunk stood labeled and corded on the
platform the day Deronda's self,
freshly and becomingly garbed, stood
beside it. The day that Agent Bert
ram, and Mrs. Bertram, and all the
numerous young Bertrams listened
for the whistle of the train at the
depot eight miles west; hung around
her with growing excitement as the
black column of smoke came down
like the guide of those fleeing from
Pharaoh, and clung around her in an
adoring farewell, which was detri
mental to her finery if flattering to
Then the iron beast was upon them
A few passengers alighted. Some ex
press packages were handed off These
the agent mechanically received. Then
Deronda's foot was on the first step of
the Pullman. The engineer was look
ing back to see that the agent's prettj
daughter got on snfely before he pulled
tl e throttle The brakeman stood ir
resolute. The conductor loiteied along
deferring the signal to tart, because
the depaiture of Deronda for the eat
was public propertj all along the line,
and the men who had known hei since
she wore short dresses and waed them
a welcome when their train went by
were Interested in this young bird
flight of hers from the overflowing
A tentative whistle quiverd in the
"Good-by, Deronda! Have a good
tlmel " Derond's father gave her a hard
of a kiss between these two who loved
each other so dearly.
And the train wee epeedinff east
ward. Ah, that was a marvelous world into
which Deronda went a world where
on wore dainty clotheo from dawn
till dawnl A world where the chief
function of the women was to charm
that of the men to serve with the most
xquislt courtesy. And the meed of ad
miration she received, when her west
era dreams had been discarded for
beautiful gowns, was new to her. Very
tweet it was, too. To be sure, she had
known what it waa to have young men
besiege her for dances and hang upon
her words. But in one case those who
had1 given her tribute were clumsy and
rough-handed country boy The men
to whom her later cnv'ronnient intro
duced her possessed that indefinable
uir of breeding, of culture, of distinc
tion which can be neither bought nor
acquired And she found the melot' of
trained voices at the opera sweeter
than the triple note of the mcai'ow
lark the scent of hothouse roscs'tnore
delicious than the perfume of wild
And so, too, she discovered entrance
uient in the homage of Eldred Wier.
Not that in his ease (here was the pos
sibility of comparison. She had never
been touched by the attentions of her
former acquaintances. There had not
been one who attracted her. When s-lie
came eaei he was quite heart wlfole
and fancy free. But missile1-- the
gentlest of missiles well directed, did
their deadly and deliciousi work. Per
haps these would not have been so
promptly effeclive, even If hurled by
Dan Cupid's unerring hand, had Deron
da realized that .lie was the bright par
ticular star of the season Had anyone
beauty, her unconscious air of alqof
ness, her repose, begotten of prairie
life and placid daily duty, had won for
her a higher meed of approbation thin
was usually accorded to a newcomer in
an exclusive coterie, ihe Svould have
opened her serene gray eye wide in
smiling incredulity. All the girls had
admirer. Almost all the girls had lov
ert. But not one of them had such a
lover as Eldred Wier
One month passed two three! And
always there were the same tributes
always there was the same direct per
sonal deference Theaters, dinners,
liowerg, bonbons, gloves, afternoon
visits, rides and drives-! Always the
same low, intimate tones lingering
hand-pressure, the magnetic allure
ment of impassioned eyes! Thea sud
denly it seemed it was, time to go
home. Time to go back to the dull lit
tle town, to the rooms ovei the depot,
to the horde of clamorous chi.dren.
Eldred Wier wai the iast to leave the
Pullman. His worshiping ejes devoured
the beauty of the shj, expectant face
His hand held hers in a close and tender
clasp. He bent his head. He spoke in a
tone that thrilled her.
"You know you must know that I
love you! You '.know, could I have my
way, I would never let you go!"
Then the train began to move. He
Five years later there was a tremen
dous rush of travel westward. The Ne
braska town of Wymore was one of
those caught in the vortex of impetu
ous pleasure seekers, Although there
were many health seekers too, bound
for the solacing serenity of Colorado or
the eolden elory of California. A
splendid summer daj was "waning wheti
a snorting- train disgorged its myriads
on the depot platform A young man,
nervous and haggard of aspect, helped
an elderly woman to alight With
scant show of patience he hurried her
into the waiting-room
"I tell you I've got to leave you for
awhile,'' he declared, testily "I've a
letter to present to one of the eastern
officials of the hoad. His private car is.
due here now I'll be back as soon as I
can." Heedless of her whimpered ob
jections he hurried oil A tall, beau
tiful young woman most charmingly
gqwned, attiacted the observation ot
the throng as she, csme down the wait
ing-room. Sht- ,ij'i,Kid the woman sit
ting alone, andgptently in distress.
"Can 1 be of seHioe?" she inquired,
The traveler, in apparel too elabo
rate and youthful for her years, looked
up into the gentle fade of the speaker.
Her wrinkled cheeks w ere chalky under
their rouge, and her false curls and
bonnet were awrj.
"No." she shrilled, heedless- of hear
ers. "No oue cun help me. I brought it
on mj&elf Me, worth half a million,
to go and marry that young whipper
snapper, that leaves me here like a bale
of goods! Not even a drink of water "
The young woman brought her a
glass of water, set straight the disor
dered hair and bonnet, and fanned the
agitated old face, talking pleasantly
"I am here," she said, "to meet my
husband. He is one of the directors of
the road. There bis special has just
come in! He Is coming this way." She
rose eagerly. "There is some one with
him." She took a step torward "Wei
come, Will!" as the stately man who
had hastened' to her side beat and
"If it wasn't for thib young lady,
Eldred" The resentful wail was cut
short by a sharp exclamation. White
as death Eldred Wier stared at Deronda
Lelghton. She looked from him to the
shriveled old creature on the seat. So
this was why he had never written
had never come! This was win she had4'
fancied her heart was broken, until "a
better man drew nigh!''
"Mr. Wier!" The glimmering smile
n her radiant eyes maddened him. "I
have been making the acquaintance of
yo'tr wu'e." "Mr Wier," she explained
to he. nandsome husband, "is an old
acquaintance of mine. But it is meet

travelers with a graceful bow. "We

to Jerry Simpson the Populist party
has seen its best day and will soon be
swallowed up by the democrats apd re

Interview says: . .
'The populists I mean th middle-of-the
road gang were mainly respon
sible for Bryan losing the state of Kan
sas. I favor the abolishment of this
element, and will do all 1 can to get
them out of the way before another
election comes around. They are a
party without any original principles
any more, and instead of helping, the
democrats are injurious to their cause."
In the last campaign Simpson de
clared himself in favor of Democrats
receiving all the nominations, claiming
the populists have already had nil the
offices due them!

Washington', Nov. 14. Tho firaf
meeting of the cabinet since the elec
tion was held this morning," and, from a
negative standpoint, was the most im
portant of the year, for it was deter
mined that there should be no depart
ure from the previous policy of the ad
ministration in any particular in any
department of the government. s
It was assumed that the people of the
United States tactly indorsed the coh
duct of the president and his advisers
in both foreign and domestic affairs,
andcaat'a votQ of confidence. It wat
also asiumed that any departure from
their previous policy would not only be
impolitic, but improper.
There will be no changes In the cab
inet so far as human wishes can control
future events. The present members
of the cabinet are satisfied with their
positions and relations and are willing
to stay and the president will be glad
to have them.
Washington, Nov. 14. The start
ling statement is made in the report of
Admiral Crowninshield, chief of the
navigation bureau, that the present
personnel of the navy would- form
barely one-fourth of the total establish
ment necessary to flght a first class
European power. It barely sufficed for
the Spanish war, and no longer can be
considered, the report says, as an effect
ive nucleus about which a larger es
tablishment could be formed in caso of
The admiral regards this need of the
navy for offlcera and men as most ur
gent. He says that the bureau can
point to many cases where the service
is being harmed by lack of olHcors.
The Naval academy is suffering for
want of instructors, and th-cp" resent
high standard of training cannot b
maintained. Every bureau in the de
partment is short of officers, and the
service, the report predicts, soon will
fall behind in the struggle, first for
