"Do You Suppose They Really Have Applewelght?"
TheUTSL B MOWN, -Bk MEREDITH mcnQ$BKml i.cuj 1 rt-t 1 or cy ui nu try.iL7 'ti-f 'zS-H 21 8YN0PSIS. Thomas Ardmore ami Henry Maine flrlxwnlil Mumble upon ItitrlKUii when the Rovrrnora of North anil Month Carolina ir rcporteil to have quarreled. Hoth mates nm In a turmoil over one Apple wclKht, an outhiw with polltlr-al tnllueiiee. Or, iwolrl allies lilnmelf with Unrlmra -horne, (laughter of the Kovernor of Houth Carolina, whllo Ardmore espouses the onim of Jerry DanmThVlil. daughter of the governor of North Carolina. These two ladles are trvlnn to till the shoes of their fat hern, while the latter are tnlss ln. T'nitware of each other's position, both flrlawnlfl and Ardmore net out to make the other prosecute. Ardmore or ganizes a hl( hunt, Orlawold'H men rap ture ApplewelKht. Jerry Kaniferlleld rila covers the captive and leads him to Ards ley, her own prisoner. Grlswold and Bar bara explore the Hcene of the disappear ance and meet Ardmore and Jerry. (Irla wold refuses to reroirnlxo his friend. CHAPTER XIV. Continued. Orlswold's companion spoke to him earnestly In a low tone for a moment, and then Grlswold addressed Ardmore incisively. "I don't know what you pretend to be, sir; but It may Interest you to know that I am the governor of South Carolina!" "And this gentleman," cried Jerry, pointing to Ardmore with her riding crop, "though his hair Is muRsed and bla scarf visibly untied, Is none other than the governor of North Carolina, and he Is not only on his own proper ty, but In the sovereign state of which be la the chief executive." Prof. Grlswold lifted his hat with the least flourish. "I congratulate the state of North Carolina on having reposed authority in hands so capable. If this young lady is correct, sir, I will serve official no tice on you that I have reason to be lieve that a person named Apple weight, a fugitive from justice, la hiding on your property and In your state, and I now formally demand that you surrender him forthwith." "If I may Introduce myself." Inter posed Jerry. "I will say to you that my name Is Geraldine Dnngerfleld, and that this Applewelght person Is now at Mr. Ardtnore's hotiBe." "I suppose," replied Miss Osborne with gentle Irony, "that he has the rink pnrlor and leads the conversa tion at table." "You are quite mistaken," replied Ardmore; "but if it would afford you any satisfaction to see the outlaw you may look upon him In my wine cellar, where, only au hour ago, I left him sit ting on a case of Chateau Mzot '82. My further intentions touching this scoundrelly South Carolinian 1 need not now discloHe; but I give you warn ing that the Applewelght lrimie will soon and .forever bo terminated nnd in a manner that will greatly redound to the credit and tho glory of the Old North State." "I triiHt," said Grlswold, "that the prisoner, whom we cannot for a mo ment concede to bo tho real Apple welght, will not be exposed to scarlet fever, pending a settlement of this matter. And now, 1 have the honor to bid you both good morning." He and narlmra swung their horses round and retraced their way, leav ing Ardmore and Jerry gazing after tbem. When the shabby brants from the stable at Turner Court House had borne Miss Osborne and Grlswold out of sight beyond the bungalow, Ard more turned blankly to Jerry. "Have I gone blind or anything? Unless ')n cruzy that was dear old GiisBy, but who is that girl?" "That is Miss llarbaru Osborne, and I hope she has learned such a Iokhou that Klie will not be ttnlppy to me my more, If she Is the president gomni,! of ta Daughters of the Seminole War." "Hut where do you suppose she found Grlssy?" "I don't know, I'm sure; nor, Mr. Ardmore, do I. care." "He said he represented the state of South Carolina do you suppose the governor has really employed him?" do not." said Jerry emphatically; ' ' "for he appears Intelligent, and intel ligence is something that would never appeal to Gov. Osborne. It Is quite possible," mused Jerry aloud, "that Miss Osborne's father has disappeared like mine, and she is running his of fice with Mr. Groswold's aid. If so, we shall probably have some fun be fore we get through with this." "If that's true we shall have more than fun!" exclaimed Ardmore, thor oughly aroused. "You don't know Crissy. He'B the sma.test man alive, and If he's running this Applewelght case for Gov. Osborne, he'll keep us guessing." "I wish you to remember, Mr. Ard more, that you still have your oppor tunity, and that I expect you to carry this matter through to a safe conclu sion and to the honor of the Old North State." "I have no Intention of falling, Miss Dangerfield;" and with this they turned and rode slowly back toward the house. Prof. Grlswold and Miss Osborne were silent until the forest again shut them in. Then, in a sequestered spot, Grls wold suddenly threw up his head and laughed long and loud. "Do you suppose they really have Applewelght?" aBked Ilarbara. "Not for a minute! They told ub that story merely to annoy us when they found what we were looking for. That touch about the wine cellar Is characteristically Ardmoresque. If they had Applewelght you may be sure they wouldn't keep him on the premises." Whereupon they rode back to Tur ner Court House much faster than they had come. CHAPTER XV. The Prisoner In the Corn-Crib. Jerry and Ardmore sat at a long table In the commodious Ardsley 11 brary, which was a modification of a Gothic chapel. A large accumulation of mail from the governor's office at Ualeigh had been forwarded, and Jer ry insisted that it must be opened and disposed of In some way. Gov. Dan gerfield was, it appeared, a subscriber to a clipping bureau, nnd they had been examining critically a batch of cuttings relating to the New Orleans incident. "It's a good thing wo got hold of Collins," observed Ardmore, putting down a clipping from a New York paper In which tho reports of Gov. Daugcrflcld'a disappearance were ana lyzed and tersely dismissed; "for he knows how to write and he's done tt splendid picture of your father on his tin-one attending to business; and his little stingers for Osborne are the work of a genius." "There's a certain finish about Mr. Collins' lying that Is refreshing." re plied Jerry, "and I cannot help think ing that he has a brilliant future be fore lilin if he enters politics. Noth ing pains me more than a. careless, ill considered, silly lie, w hich is the best that most people can do. Hut it would be very Interesting to know whether Gov. Osborne has really dis appeared, or just how your friend the Virginia professor has seized the reins of state. lo you suppose he got a Jug from somewhere, and met Miss Osborne and " "Do you think do you think she may have er possibly dosed one eye In his direction?" asked Ardmore dubiously. "Mr. Ardmoro" and Jerry pointed at ".Jiu with a bronze paper-cutter to make sure of his attention "Mr. Ard more, If you ever Imply again by act, word or deed that I winked at you I shall never, never speak to you again. I should thiuk that a man with a nice sister like Mrs. Atchison would have a better opinion of women than you seem to have. I never saw you until you came to my father's house to tell me about the jug and you know I t didn't. And aa for that Ilarbara Os- bor.i", while T don't rtonM that even In South Carolina a Daughter of the Seminole War might wink at a gen tleman in . moment of extreme provo cation, I doubt if lie did, for she lacks animation, and has no more soul than a gum overshoe." The discussion censed abruptly on the Appearance of Illg Paul, the for ester. "A body of South Carolina militia Is marching across country from the south. One of my men heard of It down at Turner Court House last night and rode to where the troops were encamped. He learned that It was a practice march for the militia. There's several companies of Infantry, so ho reports, and a piece of artillery." "liully lor old Grlssy!" exclaimed Ardmore. "They're coming this way, are they, Paul?" And the three bent over the map. "This Is the place sir. They seem to be planning to get around Turner's without, stirring up the town. Hut It would take a good deal to wake up Turner's," laughed the big German. Jerry placed her finger on the state line. "If they dare cross that if they as much as dare!" "If they dare we shall show them a few things. Take all the men you need, Paul, to watch their movements. That will do." The forester lingered. "You remember that we spoke the other day of the log house on Rac coon creek, where the Applewelghts had driven off our man?" "Yes, Paul. It Is where the state line crosses the heavy woods and the farthest outpost, so to speak, on my property. Also you said some of these Applewelght fellows had been cutting off the timber down there, If I remember rightly." "Yes, Blr," replied the forester, twirling his cap awkwardly. "But some of the people on the estate have said " He broke off In an embarrassment so unlike him that Jerry and Ardmore looked at him curiously. "Well, Paul, what's the matter? If the cabin has been burned down lt'a no serious matter." "Why, sir; some of the men passing there at night say they see lights and hear sounds in the cabin, though no one from the estate goes there. A child died in the house last spring and well, you know how some of these people are!" "Cheer up, Paul. We have bigger business on hand than the chasing of ghosts just now. When we get through with these other things I'll go over there myself and take a look at the spook." As Paul hurried away, Jerry seized a pen and wrote this message: Hutherford OIlllnRwater, Adjutant-deneral. Camp Dangerfield, Azlioll, N. C: Move all available troops by shortest route to Klldare at once, and report to me peisonally at Ardsley. Make no state ments to newspapers. Answer. DANGKKF'IEl.D, Governor. "I guess that will bring him run ning," said Ardmore, calling a serv ant and ordering the message dis patched Immediately. Ilefore luncheon a mpBsage was re ceived from Gilllngwater, to this ef fect: Gov. William DariKerfteld, Ardsley. N. C: En route with our entire available force in the field. I am riding ahead with all speed, and will report at Ardsley at nine o'clock. Is full military dress de rlgueur? Gllllnftwater. Adjutant-General. "Isn't that Just like Rutherford! He's afraid he won't be dressy enough; but If he knew that the South Carolina troops might shoot holes In his uni form he wouldn't be due here for a couple of weeks, instead of at nine o'clock;" and Jerry laughed merrily. They debated more seriously this telegram from Collins at Raleigh sent the previous evening: Can't maintain this bluff much longer. Even the friendly newspapers are grow ing suspicious. State credit Jeopardized by disappearance of Treasurer foster. Billings, of Bronx Loan and Tru;.., here In a great fury over bond matter. Do you know governor's whereabouts? "Things are certainly growing more exciting," was Ardmore's comment. "I suppose even a gifted liar like Col lins can't muzzle the press forever." "You can't go on fooling all North Carolina all the time, either," said Jerry, "and I suppose when papa gets tired of being scared he will turn up in Raleigh and tell some plausible story about where he has been and what has happened. When it comes to being plausible no one can touch papa." "Maybe he's dead," suggested Ard more gloomily. "That's a real Inspiration on your part, Mr. Ardmore; and it's very sweet of you to mention it, but I have no idea that any harm has come to papa. It's too much trouble to get elected governor, without dying In office, and besides, papa is none too friendly with the lieutenant governor and would never think of allowing such ft person to succeed hltn. Put those bonds seem rather serious and I don't like the idea of your Mr. Hill ings making a fuss at Raleigh." "That will be all right," remarked Ardmore. blotting the last of a num ber of telegrams which he had been writing, and pressing a button. "It's much more Important for us to get Applewelght Into a South Carolina jail; and it's not going to be so easy to do, now that Grlssy is working on the other side, nnd angry nt me about that scarlet fever telegram." "There may be trouble," said Ard more to ills guests as they sat at luncheon, "Hut 1 should hate to havo It said that my guests could not be taken care of here perfectly. I beg that you will all remain." The luncheon was Interrupted by the arrival of u summons for Ard more, who hurriedly left the table. Illg Paul awaited him below, mount ed and holding a leii lioise. (TO UK OiNTl.S'l'KIV) Not Proper Comparison. The old dnrky had driven his fare to the hotel and was now demanding a dollar for hla service. "What!" pro tested the pnsBenger, "a dollar for that distance? Why, It isn't half a mile aa the crow flies."

A very pretty napkin ring can be made from extremely simple mate rials, all of which are to be found In any household. To make the ring you need a round piece of wood a few Inches long, around which the ring It to be work ed. A piece of curtain pole will fill the purpose admirably. A round bot tle will do very well. Now cut several strips of thin card board about two Inches wide. These are to be pasted one, over the other, Home-Made Napkin Ring. In order to make a solid, stiff founda tion for the ring. Wherever the cardboard overlaps It must be shaved thin, so that, when glued together, the points will be per fectly smooth. Figure 1 shows Just how this Is to be done. Each strip of pasteboard should be long enough to overlap about one fourth of an Inch. After the strips have all been glued together fasten the whole thing somewhere where It will be held tightly, until It Is per fectly dry. After this cut the ends of the paste board perfectly smooth with a very sharp knife. Figure 2 shows this operation. The next step Is to make the raised rims for the ring. This Is done by pasting narrow strips of paper one fourth of an Inch wide on top of each other, In the same manner aa the pasteboard strips were pasted. After these strips are solid, they are to be covered with a narrow strip of gayly colored calico, as shown In Figure 8. The reBt of the napkin ring can be covered with a pretty colored paper or with some other pattern of calico. Gold paper makes a pretty covering. Another very attractive covering can be made from flowered crepe paper. The Inside of the napkin ring must be lined with smooth materials. A brown glazed paper la the best. Fig ure i shows the best way to Insert the lining with the help of the. Index and third fingers. Figure 5 shows the ring complete.

Even the simple plnwheel has been modernized by an Ohio man. He has contrived an arrangement whereby the wheels themselves and the group of them revolve In opposite directions at the same time, producing a bewilder ing effect of motion and color. This novel toy consists of three plnwheels mounted on a three-armed head, which Is pivoted on a rod. Each disk of the plnwheels is made In two col ors. As a child runs with one of thesej toys the disks of the plnwheels revolve as they do in the old-fashioned kind and the two colors mingle In a pleasing way. The puzzling part of the affair, however, Is the action of the structure on which the plnwheels are mounted and which revolves In the opposite direction, making a puz- In Two Co; are. zling picture. The principle, of course, Is simple enough, and it is easy to make one of these toys at home, but to the Juvenile mind the action of the device la wonderful. Popular First Names. The latest bulletin of Smith college gives the total number of students aa 1,660, coming from all parts of the country. To many women and parents a summary of their first names may not be uninteresting. The most popu lar name Is Helen, of which there are 101; the old favorite Mary, follows, with 89; Margaret comes third, with 63; Ruth has 60; Florence, 62; Eliza beth, 47; Marlon and Mildred, each 41; Dorothy, 40; Edith, 35. Fewer than twenty of the others number over a dozen each, viz.: Agnes, 13; Alice, 28; Anna, 23; Edna, 16; Eleanor, 18; Ethel, 23; Frances, 16; Gertrude, 32; Grace, 22; Josephine. 13; Kathe'rlne, 25; Louise, 26; Marguerite, 17; Mar jorle, 23; Mabel, 13. The foregoing constitute one-half of the 1,660, and the rest are In great variety. 1 Tumbler Through a Table. Place the spectators at some little distance on a level on the opposite side of the table to where you sit, having spread unperceived a handker chief across your knees. Take a drink ing glass a tumbler with no stem is preferable and, covering It with pa per, mold the covering as nearly as possible to the shape of the glass. While uttering some cabalistic phrases drop the glass Into your hand kerchief unobserved, and as the pa per retains the shape there Is no dif ficulty In making the lookers on be lieve the tumbler to be still beneath It. Passing the glass in the left hand beneath the table, you now crush the paper down with your right, when the glass will appear to have been sent through the table. If a cloth is over tho table the trick carf bo more easily performed. Ferocious Bengal Tigers. Tho man eater is usually an oldel tiger who!e strength is failing and whose teeth have partly lost their sharpness. Such a boast finds it easier to lurk In the vicinity of settle ments nnd to pick tin an occasional man, woman or child than to run down wild cattle, says St. Nicholas. The largest, fiercest and most brightly colored tigers are found in the l'rovince of Bengal, near the mouths of tho Ganges river, and not far from Calcutta. A full grown llengal lltger sometimes measures ten feet from nose to tip of tail. Such a monster makes no more account of springing upon a man than a cat does of seizing a mouse. He surpasses tho lion In strength and ferocity, and has no rival among boasts of prey except the grizzly bear and the recently discov ered giant bear of Alaska. Little Margin's Wlsli.

MIGHT HAVE COME EARLIER Admirer of Musician Must Have Felt Truth of the Answer He Received. Slgnor Puccini, although celebrated all over the world for his operas, Is still a young man. On the subject of hla early success the Italian composer said recently In New York: "I have been very lucky. Recogni tion for artistic work comes so often after one la too old to enjoy It. "I remember one of my country men, a centennrlan, who, had he died before seventy, would never have seen any of his operas produced. Luckily he lived to so groat an age that he re ceived for many years the admiration he deserved. Naturally enough, though, this splendid artist regretted his years of obscurity and neglect, and he frequently spoke bitterly of his bad fortune. "Once, at the very end of his long life, an Englishman entered his box at the opera In Rome, and said re spectfully: " "I have traveled all the way from London to see the author of my fa vorite opera.' "The veteran composer, with a ma licious smile, replied: " 'Well, my friend, I bay given you lenty of time to get here.' " ALL GAY First Tramp The doctor 'as order ed me a bath.
