CHAPTER XIX. The Deer Trace family and the two rucsts from Woodlawn were in the mu-Ic-room when Tom was admitted, with Ardea at the piano playing war sons-' for the pleasuring of hor grandfather and the ex-artllleryman. Under cover Of the music, Tom slipped Into the cir cle of listeners and went to sit beside his mother. There was a courteous hand-wave of welcome from Major Dabncy, but Miss Euphrasia seemed not to see him. Ho saw and under stood, and was obstinately Impervious to tho chilling east wind In thut quar ter. Ardea lingered lovingly on the clos ing harmonies of a nocturne, and when tho final chord was struck hor hands lingered on the keys until the sweet volcus of the strings had sun themselves afar Into the higher sound heaven.

In the drift down the wide hall Ardea fell behind with Tom. whom Cousin Euphrasia continued to Ignore. I came to tell you." he said, in a low tone, snatching his opportunity. "I can't sleep until 1 have fought it out with you." You don't deserve a hearing, even from your best friend," was her dis couraging reply; but when Uioy were at the door she gave him a formal re prieve. "1 shall walk for a fow min utes on the portico to rest my nerves," he said. "If you want to come La:k Ile thanked her gravely, and went obediently when his mother called to him from the steps. But on the Wood lawn veranda he excused himself, and when the door closed behind the two in-going, he swiftly recrossed the lawns to pay tho penalty. . The front door of the manor-house was shut and the broad, pillared port! co was untenanted. He sat down in one ot tho rustic chairs. The door opened and closed and Ardea stood be lore Dim. ent nau inrown a wrap over her shoulders, anhe light from the music-room window r'umlnated her. There was cool scorn iulha slate blue eyes, but In Tom's thought she had never appeared snore unutterably beautiful ana desirable and unattaln able. "I iiave come," she said, In a tone thut cutilm to the heart for its very indifference. "What have you to say for yourself?" "I'm afraid I haven't left myself mucU to say," he began, penitently. "I was lora foolish, and It seems; that I haven't outgrown it But, really, If you could know" "Unhappily, I do know," she Inter rupted . "It I did not, I might listen to you with better patience." "It did look pretty baa," he confess ed. "And that's what I wanted to say; It looked a great deal worse than It was, you know." "1 am bound to believe what I see with my own eyes," she rejoined. "Per hups you can make it appear that see ing Is not believing." "Of course I cun't If you take that attitude," he complained. And then ha said Irritably: "You tulk about friend ship! You don't know the meuning of the word!" "If I didn't, I should hardly be here at this moment," she suggested. "You don't seem to apprehend to what da grading depths you have sunk." Ills sins In the business field rose before him accusingly and prompted his reply. "Yes. I do; but that Is another mat ter We were speaking of what ymi taw IhU evening. Will you let me try to t-xpluln?" "Yea, If you will toll tho plain truth." "Lacking Imagination, I can't do any thing else.

Cii) on," he said; "tell me what has happened. I seem to have missed something." "No," sjhe said, with sudden gravity. I don't want to be your accuoer or your confessor; and If you should try to prevaricate, I should hate you!" "There Is nothing for mo to confess to yo:i, Ardea," he said, soberly, still holding the hand she had given hltn. "You have known tho worst of me, al ways and ull along, I think." "Ye3, I have known," she replied, freeing the Imprisoned hand and turn ing from him. "And I have been sorry, sorry; not less for you than for poor Nan Hrycrson. You know now what I thought what I had to think when I saw you with her this evening." It was slowly beating its way Into his brain. Kittle things, atoms of Biig gentlon, were separating themselves frotn the mass of things disregarded to cluster thickly on this nucleus of re vealment: the old story of his com panylng with Nan on the mountain; Ills uncle's and Japheth's accusation at tho time; and now tho old moonshin er's enmity, Japheth's meaning look and distrustful silence, Nan's appear ance with a child bearing Ms own name, the glances askance in HargU' store when he was buying tho llttlo stock of necessaries for the poor out cast. It was all plain enough. "Tell me," he said, thickly; "you heard this: you believed it. Have I been misjudging you?" "Not more than I misjudged you perhaps. Hut that is all over, now; I am trusting you again, Tom. Only, as I said before, you mustn't try me toj hard." LtVL me uriuersiaiio, in went on. still In tho same strained tone. "Know ing this, or believing It, you could still find a place in your heart for me you could still forglvo me, Ardea?" "I could still be your' friend; yes," she replied. "I believed others believ edthat your punishment would ln great enough; there are all the coming years for you to be sorry In. Tom. Hut In the fullness of time I meant to re mind you of your duty. The time has come; you must play the man's part now. What have you done with 'Walt a moment I must know one other thing," he insisted. "You heard this before you went to Europe?" Ijong before." "And It didn't make any difference 'n the way you felt toward me?" "It did; It made the vnstest differ ence." They wero pacing slowly ,i; and down the portico, and she waited until they had made the turn at tho Woodlawn end before she went on. ' ( thought I knew you when we were boy and girl together, and, girl-like, I sup pose I had Idealized you In some ways. I thought 1 knew your wickedness, and that they were not weaknesses; so so it was a miserable shock, ltut It was not for me to Judge you only as you might rise or sink from thut desperate starting point. When I came homo I was sure tnai you naa risen; I havo been sure of it ever since until until these fow wretched hours to-night They are past and now I'm going to be sure of it some more, Tom." 'What if I should tell you that you are mistaken?" "Don't," she said, softly. "That would only'be smashing what Is left of the Ideul. I think I couldn't bear that." "And you've been calling this friend ship! Ardea, girl, It's love,!" Ardea shook her head slowly. "No," she rejoined, gravely. "At one time I thought I wus afraid that it might be. But now I know It Isn't." "How do you know It?" "Because love, as I think of It, I stronger than tho traditions, stronger than anything else In the world. And the traditions are still with me. I ad mit the existence of the social pale. and as long as I live within It I have a right to demand certain things of the man who marries me." "And love doesn't domand anything," he said, putting the remainder of the thought into words for her. "You are right. If I could clear myself with a word, I should not say It" "Why?" "Because your loyalty, let us call It, Is to. precious to be exchanged for anything else you could give me in placvct it esteem, respect, and all the other well-behaved and virtuous be towals." "But the loyalty Is based on the be lief that you are trying to earn the well-behaved approvals," she con tin ued. No, it Isn't It exists 'In spite or everything, and not 'because or any thing. The traditions may try to make yoa Stand It on the other leg, It's way they have; but the fact remains." "The 'traditions' are about to send me into the house, and the principal problem Is yet untouched. What have you done with Nancy?" He told her briefly and exactly, add ing nothing and omitting nothing; and her word for It was "Impossible." "Don't you understand?" she object ed. "L may choose to believe that this home making for poor Nan and her waif Is merely a bit of tardy Justlco on your purt and honor you for It Bu nobody else will take that view of it If you keep her In that little cabin o yours. Mountain View avenue will have a fit and very properly." "I don't see why It should," he pro tested, densely. "Don't you? That's because you ire still so hopelessly primeval. People won't give you credit for the good mo tlve. You must think of some othe way." "Supposing I say I don't care hanf?" "'oh, but you do. ou have you father and mother and and me to con aider, however reckless you may be f jr yourself and Nancy. You mustn't leav her where she Is for a single day. "I can leave her there If I like. I've told her she may stay as long as she wants to." "No," she said decisively, "you will have a perfect hornets' nest about you ears. Every move you make will be watched and commented on. Don't you see that you are playing the part of th headstrong, obstinate boy agulnT "Yet you think I ought to provide for Nan, In some way; how am I going to do it unless I ignore the hornet " "Now you r more ressnnsgte," she said, approvingly. "I shall rids to morrow morning, and If you should happen to overtake me, we might think tip something." The door was opening gently under the pressure of her hand, but he was lonth to go. "I wouldn't take five added years oT life for w hat I've learned to-night Ar dea." he snld. passionately. And then: Have you fully made up your mind to marry Vincent Knrley?" In the twinkling of an eye she was another woman cold, unapproachable. with pride kindling as If she had re ceived a mortal affront. And then ho bado her good-night and went his way with a lilting song of triumph In his h"rt which not even the chilling rebuff of the leave-taklnj was sufficient to silence. "She loves me! She would still love me If she were ten times Vincent Fur ley's wife!" he said, over end over to himself; the words were on his lips when he fell aBleep, and they were still ringing In his ears the next morning at dawn-break when he rose and made ready to go to ride with her.

Dealers at T wharf wore given a surprise when Capt. Horace Hillman of the 14-ton schooner Eliza Benner of Edgartown offered 20,000 pounds ot fish to buyers at the exchange. No one believed that a schooner the slzo ot the Benner would attempt rounding Cape Cod at this season so deeply loaded. But the captain had recently purchased the vessel and thought it he could reach Boston at a time of high prices he might be ablo to nearly pay her purchase price. With five young men belonging to Martha's Vineyard Capt. Hillman took the schooner out on the ocean side of Nantucket and In a short time filled the craft to the hatches. The venture proved so successful that the crew earned about $30 each and tho Ben ner almost paid for herself. Boston Herald. The AnllqnHr ' he Orean.

Can you Imagine yourself "Far from tho maddening throng." living In a bungalow like this with never a care or a thought except the com fortable exertion of breathing the pure air from the fields or the woods? To suggest this to the tired city dweller who Is caged in flat may seem cruel, yet even he or she hopes sometime to live amid such surroundings. A bun galow like this fills the day dreams of thousands of people who are able K keep up their ambition by the hope of some time being far away from the scenes of confusion and bustle that tax the nerves and the strength Now to come down out of the clouds to more practical things. The plan of this bungalow, you will observe, Is simplicity Itself. Thero Is more porch than house. And while there are only three rooms, we shall see how roomy the structure can be made. The porch extends all around the house with steps on each of the four sides. This porch Is five feet' three inches wide. At a very small expense tho open spaces between the pillars of the porch can be screened In and screen doors provided at the entrances. Divisions or partitions of tapestry can divide thus the entire porch Into outdoor bedrooms. Privacy or protection against beating rains or sunshine can be provided by the placing of canvas shades on rollers at the openings. This plan Is an Ideal conception In tended for the man or woman who wants to live outdoors. In fact. It is a compromise between the outdoors and the Indoors. The side of the porch, for Instance, adjacent to the kitch en, can be utilised as an outdoor din ing room, and It all the remaining porch space Is not needed for bed rooms It can be set aside for other purposes. The building Itself Is 24 feet square, and the porches added make It 34 feet, three Inches square. The living room, provided with win dow seats, as the plan shows, and a cheery fireplace for use In cold weath er, or on rainy days, Is IS feet S Inches long and 13 feet 9 Inches wide. The kitchen Is 10 feet long and nine feet noet VUa side. A clo&et Is provided off the bed Room, and a pantry of ample slee Is placed off tiro kitchen. If the bed room' is not used on account of the porch being fitted up for sleeping quarters, this room can be used as a den or as a nursery. The people of this period have come to realize the value and hygienic ne cessity of plenty ot fresh air. This has come about through long educa tion. The fresh air cure for consump tion is even now established as a fact and camps are maintained In many parts of the country for the treatment of this disease by the fresh air meth od. It is needkss to say that no mem ber of a family living la a bungalow like thlb will ever need treatment for that dread disease. The open window at night is the greatest snfeguard against disease. It Is in the winter when the windows are closed, shut ting out the pun air, that most ail ments are contracted. Tho bungalow displayed here can be built for a nominal sum. Tho in terior of the house, for instance, where most of the money in building usually is spent, can be simplicity it self. The ceilings can be beamed and the sld3s of the walls finished with panels or with wainscoting and varnished or stained. As for the exterior, tho design is ad mirably adapted to being finished with cement Btucco. Ou the sheathing tar paper should bo nulled and over this furring strips sailed. Then either expandttl metal or woodun lath can be used. Two conts )Jll be required. The first, or scratch coat, is a mix ture of lime mortar containing plenty ot hair.

DISCLOSURES OF A WILl Prominent London Barrister Found tt Have Been Wedded to His Serv ant for Many Years, Ono of the most unusual romancei in many years was unfolded In Ixi n don recently by the death of Arthui Joseph Munby, n prominent barrlstei of Fig Tree Court, 83 years old. Hit will disclosed tho fact that for more than thirty-Reven years he was wedded to Hannah Cullwick, a servant, and though the world did not know of the union, he was devoted to her and she had as her highest ambition to serve Mm and cook for him. He spent many months of each year with her In Shlf- nal, and her relatives knew of the wedding, but his relatives were Ignor ant of the marriage. So devoted was Munby that he wrote verse to her. She did not care for books and learning and she had no comprehension of the vast learning of her husband or his wealth. She did not want to be de pendent upon him and was accustomed practically all her life to work out Munby had ample means to support her luxuriously, but she did not waut to live in, London, hating the city. Munby's business required him to spend part of the year there, but the remainder of the time was devoted to 1 his wife. She died a few months .be fore him, at the age of 84, but Munby did not change his will in which re referred to her as a servant and said of her: "Hannah has always refused and still refuses to have the position which as my wife she might and could have had, and has always insisted, and still Insists, on being my servant as well as my wife, her one grievance be ing that she cannot be my only serv ant, and whereas owing chiefly to this noble and unselfish resolve of hers I have never been able to make known of my said marriage to my family, or to the world at large, and the same Is known only to her kindred and three of my most intimate college friends, of whom Robert Spencer Borland knows the full circumstances and knows her personally."

The question opens an lntetnastlng prospect in the study of the races of mankind, for stature ia ono of the minor differences of race. The lowest average stature Is that of the pygmy races, 61 Inches having been recorded from several dis tlnot sonroes in Indonesia. At the oth er extreme 70 Inches has been de termined from many series of obsen- rations upon Polynesians of the Ton- tfltl migration, thus placing then above the Araucantans of Patagonia, who were long connid.ed the tallest of men. The present system of class ification of the race of men erects Its first division upon the hair and sec ondary divisions thereunder upon the stature. The races of many Inches un der the several classes are the negro, Ethiopian, Indo-Afghan, Arab, Berber, the fair haired northern Europeans, Polynesians, North American Indians, Patagonlaos. The races markedly below the average height are the Bushmen, negritos, Dravidbn, Ibero- lnsular, the flaxen haired eastern Eu ropeans, Ainu, Indonesian, South American Indian, Central American, Eskimo, Lapp. New York Sun.
