The Fate of the Light-o'-Love
By WINIFRED BLACK.
Yesterday I saw her again, the Light
It was flvo years ago that I saw her
first, and, oh, how I hated her; it was all
I could do to keep from giving her nn
open Insult, for
sho was stealing
my friend's hus
My friend wan a
sweet woman, a
good woman, a
clever woman and
pretty and she
loved her husband
dearly. But she
was not well and
she took up with a
Beet of strange
teachings, and be
came so absorbed
In following out
that sho didn't
quite realize what
she was doing to her own happiness
She went to meetings and she rcaJ
books and practiced "rhythmlo breath
ing," and "voiceless praise," and "soul
sympathy," till It really was quite trying
to be with her very much. And the Light
o' Love took advantage of these .thing
and stole the husband of my friend away
from my friend.
She was pretty, too, the Light o' Love,
and witty, and light of heart, and she
was well, perfectly well, and full of the
pure Joy of 'living. She saw a great
deal of my friend's husband when my
friend was away at a "cure," breathing
deep and "soul sympathizing," and my
friend's husband was quite faolnated.
And the pretty, witty, clever, foolish,
head-strong, light-hearted girl was a
sweet woman no more; she was, poor
thing, poor, foltsh thing, a Light o'
My friend's husband was very devoted;
he was never happy out of the sight
of the Light o" Love; he showered her
with flowers; he wrote her letters aglow
with what he thought, I suppose, was
love; he wrote poems to her; he sent her
wreathes to wear and soft fabrics for his
special delight, and the Light o' Love
was at first seoret about It, and then
triumphant, and then defiant
And we all hated her and wished her
no good, we who loved my friend and
wished to like the husband and think
(veil of him.
And my friend found the whole
wretched affair out and almost died,- and
It was very miserable and very tragic,
and some of us who looked on wished
something dreadful would happen to put
stop to It all.
That was five years ago, and yesterday
I met her, the Light o" Love.
She has Just come back from Home,
where she went to study art. Some say
the man who made her a Light o" Love
sent her there to get rid of her. Some
Bay he went there to get away from htm
herself, and some say that the wife made
the man send her.
At any rate, here she is at home again,
poor foolish, head-strong, vain, selfish.
Light o' Love, a disillusioned woman with
hardly a chance for reasonable happiness
left for her on earth.
The man doesn't care for her any
more; she isn't as pretty as she was, nor
as witty, and she doesn't laugh so easily.
I thought she was roughed a bit yester
day when 1 saw her, and I know there
were lines about her mouth.
She asked me about my friend. First
sho tried to get me to speak of her with
out being' asked, but I would not. so at
last she spoke her name. "How is she
these daysT" said the Light o' Love,
speaking of the good wife whose heart
she came so near breaking.
"She Is well." said I. "very well. I
saw her and her husband off to Japan
the other day, and really she looked like
The flickering light went out of the
Light o' Love's poor sallow eyes, and I
think she pnled a little.
"Have you seen the' children since you
came back?" I asked. "They are dreams.
Little Mrtry Is exactly like her mother,
to her fithor says, and the boy Is his
father nsraln. Isn't It lovely?"
I "Ye-t. urmered the Light o Love,
and I li . sorry for her. poor, foolish
thing. Why didn't sho learn tho lesson
sooner, before It meant so much of bit
terness to her?
Five years she gave to that man five
feverish, restless, desperate years and
now he has gone on his Becond honey
moon to Japan with the wife he had
fallen in love with all over again.
And tho Light o' Love, what will be
come of her? Faded, worn, shadowed
with whispered disgrace, what man will
make her his wife? And yet when we
first knew of it we alt felt sorry for the
wife and did not pity the Light o Love
Sorry for the wife! And the wife Is
always the winner, always the one who
triumphs In the end
Over and over have I seen It thus. Tho
children, the home, the respect a man
feels for the woman who bears his name
nothing can stand against all these
forces together, nothing, nothing nothing.
We always see tho other side In the
plays and the stories. I wish some one
would write a play that tells the truth
the simple, practical, real truth about
those affairs of the Light o" Loves. I'd
like to take every pretty woman on earth
to see thnt play and bid her learn the
lesson it teaches.
So you thought you had him, did
you, Light o' Love? You thought it was
the wife's heart that would break and
not yours? Blind, bllndl What did you
have to hold him with, a man who could
not be held by honor? How could he
give up alt that hts wife meant to him
home, children, the respect of his friends,
peace of mind, self-respect all for you?
Yes, you were pretty, witty, light of
heart. But there are thousands like you
at every turn of tho road.
Those children of his, did he pick them
up by the wayside? The home he built
with so much pride and care, every stone
lh .It spoko to him of the wife of his
youth. Did you think you could win In
any such battle as that? No, no. Light
o' Love! My heart 'has softened to you;
you are punished already for your sel
fish, cruel folly.
Qod speed you on your second honey
moon, good wife and faithful mother!
Every heart that knows or even sus
pects your story will warm to you and
wish you every Joy.
The man? Oh, he's only third in the
story. Nobody really cares much about
him. Why should they? Except the
children to them he is a great man, a
splendid Bayard, without fear and with
out reproach. So may he always be.

The state of North

peculiar coast line.
Between the ocean

sand bank from one to fit miles wide,

the ocean Into the large sounds. These
sounds lead well up Into the Interior, and,
the larger rivers emptying into them,

The sequel proved that their confidence
was stronger than their Judgment, Tho
force was In no way In keeping with the
work that was expected of It. Two or
three little sound steamers, mounting one
or two small guns each, constituted the
confederate naval force, while the works
thrown up on the Island were to be held
by a raw, undisciplined force of some
6,000 or 7,009 men.
Passing through Hatteras inlet on
January 26, Burnslde attacked the
Roanoke Island defenses February 7 and
8, and, after a hard fight succeeded In
gaining a sweeping victory. The two con
federate gunboats were destroyed, the
forts captured and some 2.500 confeder
ates were made prisoners.
The immediate fruits of the federal
victory at Koanoke Island were trifling,
but, nevertheless, that victory was of
Imnieiue consequence to the union cause.
It Jeopardized the confederate occupa
tion of Norfolk, Vu., a most important
point. It was a big step toward the
enforcement of the blockade. It led to
the fall of Elizabeth City and Newbern,
with its excellent seaport, thus placing
Practically the whole Carolina coart In
tho hands of the federals.
Most Important of all, It gave tho
federals (the confederates having at tho
time no navy) the almost undisputed con
trol of the eastern half of the state,
which, with Its rich cornfields, was of
inestimable value to the union army.

A correspondent asks a question which
appears to be perpetually puullng to a
great many people, and since the answer
Involves one of the most important rela
tions between the sun and tho curth, It
ih hero given,
This Is the ques
tion: If as astron
omers say. the
causa of winter Is
tho low elevation
of tho sun, why,
thon, since tho sun
la lowest in the
south about the 22d
of December, tho
winter solstice, does
continue to fall
after tho sun has
turned hack north,
and hus been rising
higher for several weeks? I should think
It would be the coldest ut the winter
soUtlcd, when the sun is lowest, and Its
rays full the most obliquely."
Hero Is the answer; The cold of winter
Is due to two causes which act togethor;
first, to the low angle at which the sun's
rays strlkn the earth, causing the same
quantity of heat to be spread over a
much greater area, and second, to the
fact that when the sun Is below tho equa
tor tho nights In northern hemispheres
nro longer than tho days.
Let us take the second first Look at
the first figure, showing the north pole
of the earth leaning away from tho sun,
its It does In winter, while the south pola
leans toward It. The shaded side rapre
sents night and the other, day. Starting
from the equator, where day and night
are always of equal length, no matter
what tho position of the poles with refer
ence to tho sun may be, you perceive that
as you go north the length of night In
creases as compared with that of day. At
forty degrees north latitude, which Is the
median latitude of tho northern United
States, the difference Is very evident
on the diagram. At the time of the
winter solstice, which Is that hero repre
sented, when the sun is tweney-three und
a half degrees south of the equator, the
night at forty degrees north latitude Is
ubout four and a half hours longer than
As you continue to go north the differ
ence Increases until when you have ar
rived at the Arctic Circle, within 234 de
grees of the pole, day vanishes com
pletely, and It is alt night. In the south
ern hemisphere exactly the reverse oc
curs, so that they have their winter when
wn have our summer.'
Now, as to the second cause mentioned
above; look at the second figure. Yov
know, no doubt, that corn stalks always
grow up vertically out of the ground,
whether It la a flat valley or a hillside.
But a farmer will tell you that he cap
raise mors corn to an acre of flat ground
than on a steep hillside, even It thore If
no difference In the fertility of the soil
The reason is evident from an Inspection
of the diagram. The same npmber of
stalks is represented on the upper pari
of the figure as on the lower part Utif
they cover more ground, because the
sloping lino Is longer than the level ono
If the lower line, then, represents tho side
of an acre, the upper one, containing the,
tamo number of stalks, must represent
the side of a square much greater than
The same thing happens with the sun's '
rays. They are equally numerous '
whether they strike the earth vertically I
or sloplngly, but when they fnlf
sloptngly they aro spread over a greater
surfuce, and consequently their heating
effect, for a given area, la less.
The combination of theso two causes,
as wo havo said, brings on the cold of
winter. It remains to explain why tho
cold 1b not greatest when tho sun Is low
est. It Is becAUso tho cold will accu
mulate or more correctly, tho relative
loss of heat will grow greater as long as
more heat Is radiated away at night
than Is accumulated by day, and this
continues to bo tho caso for about six
weeks nfter the sun has turned back
from the winter solstice, and begun to
riso again toward tlio north. Although
the, sun Is lowest about December 22 the
greatest coUl of winter ordinarily occurs
ubout February lj but tho precise date
Ih variable owing to local or accidental
Influences, An soon as the amount of
heat stored by day equals that lost iu
night the temperature wilt begin to rise.
Exactly the same Influence is at work
In summer, for tho hottest weather docs
not occur on Juno 21, when tho sun Is
highest, and when tho greatest amoustt
of heat is poured down in twenty-four
hours ,but about tho end of July, when
the earth has become thoroughly warmed,
and more htat Is accumulated by day
than la radiated away by night
