"Horrible little cat!" sho said.
"What a d'.nl.-ey ho is, but, oil, my lord,
I'll briiifi j- '.i ti your wt'vs!" Ati 1

"Oh, Captain Ceaamont," tho said,
"I want te speak to you, Will you do

-just because I am Alice's cousin, aurl
I know, if all the prople at the hotel
and my husband doesn't, that yon are
head over ears in love with her and are
just waiting to pet her answer, and I
have always stood your friend uud now
want you to do something for mo. "
"Anything that 1 can do tor you,
Mrs. Yorke, I will," said the captain.
So Doris sat down and told him some
thing at which he at first looked sol
emn and theii burst out laugbiug.
"Agreed," ho said; "but, mind, we
must botli write to Alice tonight."
"Certainly," answered Doris, with a
saucy toss of her pretty head.
That night George weut into his
wife's dressing room.
Sho looked wonderfully pretty, he
could not help thinking.
She wore a gown of tho palest green
silk, with a very low bodice lavishly
trimmed with pearl embroidery. She
held out to bim one slender white arm
for him to clasp tho pearl bracelet on.
"Von are n swell," bo said, rather
nervously. " What are you dressing like I
"You forget," she replied sweetly, j
"We are going to the theater."
George Hushed. j
"I do not think that wo will goto:
tho theater tonight. You kuow that we
arranged that Mrs. Winn anil the cap- :
taiu should go with us, but sho cannot ;
get off the couch, her ankle is so bad,
and 1 told her that we would stop at j
home. Sbo will bo so frightfully dull, j
Desides, I am awfully tired, and I
should like to retire early. " j
He glauerd at Doris " again. Would:
she be auuoyed bo wondered. Ho knew!
that she had had rather a dull day at tbo ;
hotel, but still well she would not j
be silly enough to misrepresent a few ;
common attentions to a pretty woman, i
and ho would take her to the theater ,
when they returned to town. I
"That is very swei t of you," said'
Doris. "Poor dear, you do look tin 4 ;
and worn. Upon my word. George, you
are beginning to look quite old. You ;

Georgo drew a sigh of relief.
Doris really was a dear little girl. ;
Such a sensible wife! Hu would bo able
to resume his conversation with Mrs. j
Winn on the possibilities of platouio
love, anil in tho m uutimo Doris could
finish reading the latest novel. Then if
Jdrs. Winn's foot were better bo would
go to the theater next evening.
At dinner that nibt bet could not
help noticing how provokiuj.ly pretty
Doris was. ilho laughed uu.l chatted
and was iu tbo best of tempers, but
presently ho was u.-'touished he bear 1
her call just over tho table to Captau.

Oh or Captain Beanmout, you
might haye made a mistake. We uro
not goirrg to the theater tonight. Mrs.

not to go because she would ba so loue
"Yes, dear," said Doris, iu that clear ;
voice of hers. "I know you uro going to ;
stop and keep .Mrs. Winn company. It
is so sweet of you, but the captain and
I are going to tho theater together, and
it is just about time, isn't iti1"
And sho got up composedly.
Before Georgo could say a word shj

carefully putting it "ru1111 lM !1,ul1

"Captain Beaumont and you?" be
echoed iu a sudden fury. "It is always

"My dear," sho replied calmly, "yon
are not so silly as to be jealous, are you?
Jealousy is u thing I could never un-
derstand. Of all things I abhor it is a
jealous mu'i. I should never think of
yon for one being jealous of Captain 1
Beaumont. Look how much older bo is
than I am. "
"I do not enro a pin," said George,
"if be is cider or younger. I know you I
are my wife, aurl it is my place to take ;
you out for rides uud drives and to bring ,
you flowers, and I am not going to al j
low a siuglo man to be hanging after
you always and to have every one in
the hotel speaking about it. Yon go out
driving with bim, he takes you to ti:c
theater, gives you flowers, and you al
low him to pay you any amount of at
tention." "My dear," said Doris, "you fir?
really exciting yourself. I a:n sure you
are far too much of a man of tho world
to be jealous. Besides, you take Mrs.
Winn for drives and you givo her Hew
ers. You hang about and have all tho
people iu the hotel speaking about it,
and when I receive attentions why
should you worry about it?"
"Because I love you, Doris," gnid
Georgo affectionately. "Because yon
are my wife. I do not euro a bang for
that littlo fool of a widow a littlo
empty beaded doll. I fiirud with hrr
well because I never could help mak

"And you said that you would never

"I was au ass," said Gccrne.
And then ho took Doris in bis anna

"Upon my soul," bo said in a few
moments, "1 won't do it-nuy more.
Tho gamo in not worth tho caudle.
Don't yon flirt, and I won't."

When be met Captain Beaumont in

held out his hand and said, "Well, old

All people, Ibrreforu, do not correspc.id
in their need of sleep. Many authorities
agree tlmt the degruo to which sleep is
needed depends upon the strength of
consciousness. Children, savages and
idiots readily fall asleep bocauso their
consciousness is ill developed, and
therefent) readily fatigued. Persons of
strong will power and marked individ
uality require relatively littlo sleep. It
is difiieult to ovcrfatiguo their cou
Kciousness. Young infants aro found to demand
I sleep tho majority cf tbo hours of the
1 day, those up to (i weeks of ago requir
i iug 20 hours, tho time being gradually
; decreased to from ten toei;:bt hours un
' til tho ago of puberty. During the ago
i of puberty more sleep is required. After
I puberty from nino to seven hours are
necessary. After complete crowlh from
j eight to six, and in iniddlo ago even
I less, until feebleness begins, whoii tho
sleeping hours should gradually in
crease. With increased intellectual
growth, however, insoii:iii:i naturally
increases even during old ago.
Too much sleep is thought to be
harmful by some authorities. Since
: consciousness requires waking hours for
development, too much sleep will rob it
of its education. During sleep man
grows liko a vegetable, but bis mind
i pets uo exercise, which its development
demands. Wera a child to sleep 20
hours a day until II) years old, he would
doubtless bnvu a feeblo mind. Children
who sleep too mm h uro found upon in
vestigation to bo fatter than those who
Fleep at a normal rate, but their intel
lects aro duller and their muscles weak
er. Insomnia, 011 tho other hand, is al
ways a dangerous symptom in children.
