"You will see him, dear Mrs. Se ville?" cried Hope, witii wrhite, parched lips. "You. are so good as to think I was of use to you; If you woujd amply repay me, see your son let him plead for bis wife. They are married, you cannot separate them, and I' she Is a true woman It will break her heart to know she has parted mother and son. It Is in your power to confer such happiness." "I will receive my son. As to his Ife, I cannot say what I shall do. I gave Rawson directions to have her watched; It was a shabby thing to do, but 1 did It. He has had her closely shadowed, but she haa been absolutely well conducted. Still, if It is In my power to confer much happiness. It was in hera to create much misery and she did it! Why, Hopo, what Is the matter? Are you ill?" Hope fell back In her chair so dead ly white and motlonlea that Mrs. S.i ville was terror-struck. Sho rang vio lently, and, rushing to the fainting girl, began to rub her cold hands. "Bring water, wine! send Jessop! call the doctor!" sho cried, In great agitation, to tho astonished butler, who bad never before seen his Imperl oos mistress so moved. "The doctor has Just driven off, 'm; but I will send Jessop." Boon the lady's-maid, the butler, and the housekeeper were trying to bring Miss Desmond back to life. When she did open her eyes they sought Mrs. Savllle's; she smiled and feebly put out her band. "Now she must go to bed," said Mrs. Baville, holding the offered hand in both her own. "She had better be carried up-stalrs." "I can walk quite well; at least in a lew minutes," murmured Hope, "ir Jessop will help me." Thus Hope was relegated to her own room, where Mrs. Baville Insisted sliu must remain all ths next day. Won derful to relate, that lady spent most of It at her bedside, reading or knit ting. Neither spoke much, yot they had a certain comfort in the compan ionship. Miss Rawson called, and was admitted during Mrs. Savllle's ab sence, when she went tor a short air ing, which she contildered essential for her own health. To her Hope explained that she must for the present refuse her hospitable Invitation. Then they talked long and confidentially, and Miss Rawson took charge c ' couple of letters hen she bade her young friend good by. It was now established that Miss Desmond was not to appear till lunch eon-time, Mrs. Saville being content to read the papers herself. The doctor was not quite satisfied; his young pa tlent did not recover strength or tone; she was depressed and nervous, avorse from food, sleepless. Some complete change to a bracing place might be necessary. Mrs. Saville, who waa deeply concerned, went eagerly Into the question rf localities, but Hope Im plored, almost plteously, not to be sent away. It was the end of September, and London was at Its emptiest; Mrs. Su villa was therefore spared the visit and kind inquiries of her kinBfolk and acquaintance. She was HI at ease from anxiety concerning Hope. All that was kindly and grateful In her strong nn ture had been drawn forth by the ties olate orphan girl who had the spirit to withstand her hlthe'to unrr-'-ted tyranny, and the perception to appeal to the better self which lay beneath It. So Mrs. 8avtlle sat by herself, think Ing deeply of her past, her present and the possible future, one warm rainy morning. "Horrid weather fo Hope," she thought; "Impossible fo nerves to get right under such skyey influence." Yes, she must get Hope ou of town. How desolate her lift would be without that girl! and sh would need comfort and support 1 coming years. Even If she brought herself to accept Hugh's wife, she would probably turn out a thorn In their side aud keep her and hur sou apart Here the old butler, with a beam I u faie, announced, "Mr. Hugh, ma'am, and her son entered.

"I think they will melt when you see her. mother." "I doubt It," Mrs. Saville was be ginning, when the door opened, and Hope Desmond walked slowly Into the room. Sho seemed very pale and fra gile In her simple black dress. No sooner had she caught sight of Hugh than her cheeks flushed, her great brown eyes lit up with a look half Joy, half terror, and her lips parted with a Blight cry. CHAPTER XXII. Hugh Baville sprang forward. claiming, "My own love; my own dar ling wife!" and folded her In a rap turous embrace, kissing her hair, her eyes, her lips, forgetful of everything else. Mrs. Baville again rose from her chair, and stood petrified. At last Hope disentangled herself from her hus band's arms, and, crossing to where her mother-in-law stood, said, broken ly, "Can you forglvo me the deceit 1 have practiced? Can you have pa tience to hear ni7 explanation?" "I am bewildered," cried Mrs. Sa ville, looking from one to the other. "Is Hope Desmond your wife, Hugh.'' "She Is! Can you forgive me now?" said Hugh, advancing to support Hopo's trembling form by passing his arm around her. "It Is Incredible! How did you come to impose upon me In this way?" "I will tell you r 11," Hope began wnen sne was interrupted by a mes sage which the butler brought from Mr. Rawson request'-g to be admitted "Show him up; he Is a party to the fraud." said Mrs. Saville, sternly. Hugh drew his wife closer to hlra aa Mr. Rawson entered looking radiant. "I trust you do not consider me an intruder." he said. "You come Just when you are want ed. I feel my brain turnln," returned Mrs. Saville. "If you will listen," urged Hope, with cAasped hands. "Yes, pray hear Mrs. Hugh Saville," said Mr. Hawson. Mrs. Saville turned a startled look upon him and Hope went on: "When I came tu this good friend, who offered me the shelter of his house so soon as he found I was the niece of his old rector, I was In despair. I began to realize the mistake, the dlsobedleic? that Hugh had been guilty of. 1 siJ leldod too readily to the temptation of spending my life with him. I felt that I was the cause of his troubles, and I was overwhelmed. I wished that I could die; anything to be no longer a burden and an obstacle. Then I heard Mr. Rawson speak of finding a com ivaulon tor Mrs. Saville, and the thought came to me of being that com panlon, and perhaps winning her affec tion for myself and restoration for Hugh." A sudden sob Interrupted her, then, with an effort, she went on: "Mr Rawson was startled at the Idea, but his daughter at once took It up, and, after some discussion. It waa agreed that I should make the desperate at tempt. I was therefore Introduced to you by two of my names Hope Des mond. I was called Katharine Hope Desmond after my mother, who was Uncle Desmond's only sister. How I had the courage to brave such an ex perlment I cannot now understand, for my heart" she pressed her hands against her bosom, and, d'sengagiug herself, made a atep nearer her moth er-In law "seems to flutter and fall me. Dut the desire to retrieve the wrong I had wrought sustained me. I did not tell Hugh what I had under taken until 1 bad been some weeks with you. He was much alarmed, and begged me not to risk too much to leave as soon as I could, if the strain was too great; but he did not forbid me to stay. So I stayed. How dread ful the beginning was! Yet, though you were cold and stern, I could bear It, for you are too strong to be suspi cious, or petty, or narrow, and I dared not let myself fear you; and then I grew to know you had a heart. That Is what makes this moment so terrl hie; I fear your disapproval more than vuur displeasure. Now, can you, will you, forgive me?" Mrs. Saville was silent; her brows were knit, her eyes downcast; yet Hope dared to take the fine small hand which lay on the arm of the chair. Mrs. Savillo did not draw It away. The 'ookerson held their breath. Then ho drew Hope's to her, and gently stroked It. "I think," she e slow 'y, "that you are the only creature that ever understood me. I forgive your husband, und accept you not because his disobedience is pardonable, but be cause, when I camo back from the J.iws of death, the first sight that met my eyes were your tears of Joy at my recovery. Yet, had I died intestate, you and your husband would have 'x'en far better off than yon will be; nni you knew It. You are the first hat has ever given mo what gold can not buy." "Mother." cried HngU Saville, in a tone of wounded fewllng, "I always 'oved you as mm 3 as you would let ma." "Perhaps you did. I believe yon did," said his mother. Hops had sunk on her knees, anJ kissed ths hands which held hers, then her head fell forward, and Hugh sprnng forward to lift her. She Is quite overcome," he exclaim ed, almost Indignantly. "She Is but a ghost of her former self. A"d he placed her In an easy-chair, where she lay with closed eyes. "Happiness will be a rapid restora tive," said Mrs. Saville. kindly. "Now. what punishment Is to be dealt out to you, trallor that you are?" she con tinued, turning to Mr. Rawson. "To enter Into a conspiracy against your trusting client! Shall I degrade you from the high office of my chief ad viser? I must hold a council, and the council-board shall be my dinner-table. Bring your daughter to dinner this evening, and wo shall settle many mat ters. And, Hope. If you feel equal to the task, write to Richard, Inviting him to dinner to meet his new sister In law." "Very few fellows have so rood a right to be proud of a wife as I have," cried Hugh, exultlngly. "Our old na val stories of desperate cutting-out ex ploits are poor compared to the endur ing courage that upheld Kate, as I al ways call her, throtfh the long strain of her bold undertaking." "She has enlightened me, at all events," said Mrs. Saville. "Now go away to the drawing-room and have your talk out. The doctor Insists that a complete change Is necessary ror Hope's recovery; so take your wife away to-morrow for your longdelayed honeymoon. But, remember, whenever you are pursuing your profession on the high seas, I claim the companion ship of Mr. Rawson's pleasant pro tegee." "Dear Mrs. Saville, I will be your loving daughter so long as you care to have me near you,'' cried Hope; and, no longer hesitating, she folded her formidable mother-in-law In her arms (The end.) TRANSFORMATION OF TEXAS. Spectacular Pioneering on the Rio Grande, "the American Nile.' Texas is beginning to come Into Its own, aays Henry A. Harwood in Har per's Weekly. Ten years ago an immi gration began which haa steadily gain ed strength and breadth, until to-day a country nearly as large as New Eng land is feeling the impact ot vigorous colonization. Land that had remained for ages as nature made it la feeling the touch of the plow. Vast stretches of waste land where only cattle roamed yesterday and buffalo the generation before are being opened up aa farms and settlers are coming in from every State in the Union, but especially troni the Middle West. It is another act In the great Amer ican drama of conquest. Thesti farm ers played, too, in some of the earlier acts. They are the men who pushed on into the undeveloped West. But what a difference there Is to-day! They do not come now in prairie schooners, and the privations of those davs are unheard of. They come to Texas in special railway coaches, with an attendant who answers questions. with a dining car for their comfort. with automobiles to meet them wheu they arrive at their destination. It Is pioneering do luxe. What must the old-timers think when they come into this new country to pick a farm If their thoughts go back only a single generation to the days when they fought their way against hardship that seems now to be only tradition? The most spectacular boom of all is going on In tlie g-lr coast country. In the northern counties they are mild in their rlainiH, they say they have land that is fully as pood us the av erage and at a much leas price; but on the gulf coaBt they know no limit. And they have good reason. No one knows what the limit will be. What ever has been tried has blossomed, water Is plentiful and Beemlngly In exhaustible, the sun is kind and the people are flocking in so fast that they cannot be counted. Is it any wonder that they shout Instead ot talk? On the western end of the gulf coast country la the Rio Grande valley. Un til the St Louis, Brownsville & Mex ico road was put through this section was practically off the map, so far as commerce went Now it Is distinctly on the map. For centuries the Rio Grande has been depositing a rich lot of mud all over the delta, as It in an ticipation of a hungry lot of settlers who would some day come Into the land and call It the American Nile. Irrigation canals are stretching out from the river at a half dozen points, giving drink to thousands of acres ot fine land In this newly-dlscovercd Eden, and farmers by the hundred are already taking from the rich soil the heritage that centuries has brought it The first strawberries, watermelons and other vegetables that reach the Northern markets come from this re glon. That Is what makes the open ing up of the land so valuable; for when the facta that it la 1,500 miles nearer to St Louis than is Califor nia, and that It can supply the North ern markets with fresh vegetables in the dead of winter, are taken into con slderatlon, it Is plain that no one can estimate with any degree of accuracy1 the future that lies before it Her OrteTaaee.

The editor likes boys, they are often abused unjustly. And he often regrets that he hasn't the power to emphasize this fact: A boy can have a better time as a polite and well-behaved boy than as a rough. Having passed through the mm, we Know, when we were a boy, we did so many unneces sarily foolish things that we spend most of our time now in blushing. Here is one thing that boys can think of wltt profit: Good boys are always admlrid. By a good hoy we do not mean a sissy or a mollycoddle. A good boy can have a better time than a boy whose parents are always wor rying about him. There Is nothing wh'ch promises a good time that good boy may not do. The mean things boys do always cause them trouble And we firmly believe that boys are becoming better all the time. Yester day we witnessed a boy ball game without hearing an oath or rough word. A boy should always bear his future in mind; be Is rapidly becom Ins: a man. and it is uncomfortable to become an unsuccessful man Therefore, boys should remember that good boys are the first to be offered positions.

In "The Story of My Life," by Au gustus Hare, is told the following creepy story: A regiment was passing through Derbyshire on Rb way to fresh quar ters in the north. The colonel, as they stayed for the night in one ot the country towns, was Invited to dine at a country house in the neighborhood and to bring any one he liked with him. Consequently he took with him a young ensign for whom he had a great fancy. They arrived, and it was a large party, but the lady of the house did not appear till Just as they were going in to dinner and when she appeared waa so strangely dlBtralt and preoccupied that she scarcely attended to anything that was said to her. At dinner the colonel observed that his young companion scarcely ever took his eyes off the lady of the hoase, staring at her in a war which seemed at once rude and unaccountable. It made hlra observe the lady herself, and he saw that she seemed scarcely to attend to anything said by her neighbors on either side of her, bt rather seemed, in a manner quite un accountable, to be listening to some one or something behind her. Aa soon as dinner was over the young ensign came to the colonel and said: "Oh, do take me away! I en treat you to take me away from th! j place." The colonel Bald: "indeed, your conduct Is so very extraordinary and unpleasant that I quite agree with you that the best thing we can do is to go away." And he made the excuse of his young friend being ill and or dered their carriage. When they had driven some distance the colonel asked the ensign for an ex planatlon of his conduct He said that he could not help it During the whole of dinner he had seen a terrible black, shadowy figure standing behind the chair of the lady of the house, and it had seemed to whisper to her and she to listen to It. He had scarcely told this wheu a man on horseback rode rapidly past the carriage, and tho colonel, recognizing one of the ser rants of the house they had Just left, called out to know if anything was the. matter. "Oh, don't stop me, sir!" he shouted. "I am going for the doctor! My lady has Just cut her throat!" Mountain Climber Escape. Plunging headlong from the rocky side of a mountain in the Olympic range, near Lake Cushman, a distance of fully 600 feet, and yet escaping without a broken bone, is the expert ence that befell Ferd Baker, says the Aberdeen correspondence of the Seat tle Post-Intelllgencer. In company with several others from this city Mr. Baker climbed the moun tain yesterday. About 4 o'clock the party started downward and bad taken but a few steps when Baker lost his footing and plunged over a precipice. How far he fell he does not know, but he was rendered unconscious by the fall, and in this condition his body rolled down the mountain until Anally caught by a bunch of shrubs. There he lay until found by W. J Patterson, one of the party. With the application of snow and ice Baker was revived and after a time walked to camp, where his wounds were at tended to. He was frightfully brnlsed about the body and face and suffered much pain. He was made as comfort able aa possible and at daybreak this morning the start for the city was made in an automobile.

It will be sad news to many a pool man and woman In London to hear that "Father Max," as he was affec tionately known by them, or, to give htm his full name, Prince Maximilian of Saxony, has developed consumption and. In order te save his life, has been ordered by the doctors to leave his work and take the open air cure, a London newspaper says. For four years he worked devotedly in one ef the poorest parishes of London, this being the scene f his labors after his ordination. In violent contrast to this were the earliest years of his life. He Is a brother of the present King of Saxony and began his career as a lieutenant of the Saxon guards. But court II r was thoroughly distasteful to him, be ing always a serious-minded man and inclined rather to stndy and medita tion than the activities or worse, the idleness of. meek soldiering. He In herited a deep religious feeling from his mother, the Archduchess Loulss Antoinette of Tuscany, and when he turned to the church mnch was hap pening at the court of Saxony to dis gust and depress bim. His brother, King Frederick Augustus, married the unfortunate Archduchess Lonlse ot Austria, whose divorce and subsequent matrimonial affairs occasioned so much scandal, and one can guess how glad the young prince would be to cut himself loose from such surround ings. He, therefore, threw np his commis sion In the guards and began his stud ies with a view to entering the Roman Catholic church under Bishop VBn Leonard of Bavaria, and was ordained In 1896.
