"Tell," the girl pleaded coaxingly, With her soft cheek against his. "Ask rue anything but that and I will grant it," answered her lover. J'That is a matter "which concerns my conor, and so not even for yon can X" "Oh," she interrupted pettishly. "I am sick of hearing that cant about ynnr honor. Yon only promised your father, and I am snre if he had known me he would have told me, but yon yon are as hard as adamant. Yen can't care for me properly, or yon would do what I ask yon the very first thing I have ever asked yen," sho ended pettishly. Alan Demaine smiled at the pretty exhibition of childish wrath. Then he said gravely, yet firmly t "It is no use, Elsie. Yon are cansing i "both yourself and me needless pain by constantly teasing me on this matter. Once and for all I cannot tell yon, so now let us talk of something pleasant. What is the last new sown like?" he ended, smiling lovingly down as her. j The girl looked at him, a curious? glance, half menace, half malice, then, veiling her eyes, drooping before his ardent- glance, she allowed herself to be coaxed, flattered and petted into a seem ingly forgetful mood. I wonder why the little witch is so eager to know the secret a trade secret too?" thought Demaine to hirnsalf that i night vs he smoked a quiet cigar. "A childish whim, I suppose, cr woman's curiosity." And. to thinking, he dismissed the subject frrai his mind. But he would not have dismissed it quite so easily if lie could have looked into a distant chamber in another part of the house and seen a little fury ex citedly pacing the Sccr and murmuring to herself: "I will get to know is yet, whether by fair means cr foal it matters little, but 1 will net it. and then" "I must be off to the works at once, " Alan said next morning to his mother and sisters. "Tell Elsie, when she comes down, tnat l am awinliy sorry . not to be able to take her for a drive, as J we arranged yesterday, but something i unexpected has turaed up, and J am com- ' pelled to attend to it. No eye like the master's eh, mother? he finished ! laughingly. ilrs. Demaine looked fondly at her son- "You are just like yonr father, " she said proudly. "It was aye duty before pleasure with bita. t6 I'll tell the lassie, Alan, and maybe you'll be home by dinner time." "I can't say, mother," lie answered cheerily; ''only wait for me. " And then they heard the hell door close and knew he was off. The day were away. Elsie declined Enid Du maine's offer to drive her in place of Alan and went off for a long walk by j herself. Enid and Cicely looked curi- j ously after her as she walked down the j drive, and then Cicely said half dream- ily: j "I do think there is something odd , about Elsie. I wish Alan had not fallen in lovo with her. Do you know, " low ering her voice to an awestricken whis per, "I'm afraid she is not trust worth v. " When Alan came home that evening, he seemed in uproariously geed spirits. He laughed and chatted and joked and teased until his mother declared that he was "fey. " After dinner he invited Elsie out on to the terrace, to "see the moonlight," he declared mendaciously. Very fair aud sweet the girl looked in her pretty white gown of some shim mering material, and so her lover evi- ; dently thought, for he suddenly caught her to his breast and rained passionate ( kisses on her brow and lips. Then, just j as suddenly, he thrust her from hrm ' and stood facing her in the moonlight. The girl was half frightened at his man- ' ner. "What is the matter, Alan?" she asked timidly. j "Nothing, my pet, " he replied in his old manner; "only you looked so be- j witching I think I lost my senses." I "I think yoa did," she retorted co- quettishlv. "Alan." she continued 1 earnestly, "do you really and truly love me' He looked at her curiously, then, recollecting himself, replied: r "What a foolish question to ask! How many hundreds of times have I told you the old, old story?" i "But, " she persisted, raising her face to his, I never, never can believe it until ycu teil me that secret." His face darkened at her words, "Did I not tell you last night that your persistency was worse than use less?" he retorted, looking coldly down at her. "Well, then," she answered passion ately, "until you do tell me '1 will never marry you never I" There was a long silence between them- Pinallv the man broke it. "Do you mean what you S3V he asked in a low, tense voice. Cfertainly, ' ' she responded in a hard, determined tone. Then, changing her maTTTKT to one of winning sweetness: "But I know your will tell me. You could never, never be so cruel as to re fuse." He turned away and began the' lawn in an. undecided, wavering ! fashion, . quite unlike his usual firm step. The girl followed him and laid one hand on his arm. j "Tell me," Ehe whispered beseech-j ingly. Then she raised herself on tiptoe j and kissed him. 1I cannot resist, "he murmured,' then - stooped suddenly and whispered some thing into her ear. "Is that all?" Ehe asked, in evident rarpcise. He nodded. offers g "campaiuohshJp and went "off !fcr a. solitary stroll. As "she approached a little wooded copse about half a mile fx can the house a young man sauntered slowly toward her. "Well, what success this time?" ho demanded, without troubling to -make any preiim inary greeting. "Wait a minute, Hugh," the girl an swered. "I am quite breathless with hurrying. That tiresome Enid wanted to come with me. And I wasn't at all sure of Ahin not coming too." The man stood for a minute cr two in silence, then glanced at his compan ion impatiently. "1 hove got it," sho answered quiet ly, returning his glance. His whole face changed and glowed with triumph. "You little darling, ycu clever little darling," he exclaimed, and then took her in his arms and kissed her passion ately. She lay quite passive in his em brace, her dark eyes gleaming with ten derest love. "Now we can marry," he whispered. "But you have not told me yet, Elsie. Are you sure vou have got the exact details?" "It is all written here, word for word, as Alan repeated it to me," she replied. He read the paper greedily which she handed to him, then placed it in his pocketbook and drew a deep breath of relief. "So that is all the secret of -Demaine s wonderful purple dye," he said. "Well, I rather think now that the monopoly is destroyed. Won't tho old fashioned firm be astonished when they find themselves undersold in the market by a dye exactly like their own. ' ' And he laughed n. cruel laugh of tri umph. "I always hated Demaine," he continued, "always. This will he splen did revenge, besides making all cur far tunes. Bat come, Elsie, " he added, "it is time we were moving. I'll see you to the park gates, and then I must get back to town." A month passed away, and Elsie was Etiil visiting the Demaines, still out wardly engaged to Alan, of whom nev ertheless she saw very little. 'Hugh, ' Elsie said to her lover one evening, "don't you think" and then Ehe stopped in cocfusiGn. "Thiakwhat?" said Hugh idly, with out looking at her. "That it is not very nice cr pleasant fcr rae to be staying in Alan's home, when I have betrayed him?" she ended bravely. "I don't see what else yoa can do," retorted Hugh lazily, "unless yon go back to yoer aunt's. ' The girl crimsoned to her brow. "Couldn't we be married now?" she whispered in shamed tones. He looked at her sharply, then replied: "Look here, Elsie, it is best to be straightforward, so we may as well end this fares at once. I am engaged to my cousin Marian, and we are to bo mar ried next month. " There was a long silence. Up in the bright blue heavens a bird was caroling merrily, and in a strange, mechanical manner Efeie counted five daisies which were in a cluster at her feet. Then she spoke: "So too just used mo as a tool, Hugh?" "Yes," he acquiesced shamefacedly She laughed a strange, hard laugh. "It does not hart very much after all not very much," she repeated pite ousiy, and then without another word turned and left him. When Alan Demaine reached home that uif?hf, his mother and sisters met him with the news that Elsie had been suddenly summoned to meet her aunt "Though when she got the letter I'm sure I don't know," added Enid suspi ciously. H?r brother made no reply, but went Etraight to his own room, and there, on the toilet table, lay. a tear stained note. "I have been a wicked, deceitful girL." the letter ran, "and now the greatest punishment I have to bear is the knowledge that I have brought ruin upon you." Then followed an explana tion concerning her curiosity about the dye, and the note ended with a plea for forgiveness. In reply Alan wrote as follows: "My forgiveness you have fully and freely, and I sincerely vcish you every happi ness in the future. You must not dis tress yourself about 'ruining me,' as the 'secret' (?) which I told you con cerning the purple dye is no secret at all, but a very ordinary chemical prep aration well known in the trade. For give me for deceiving you. I overheard your conversation with the scamp who used you as his tool, and I could not re sist my little piece of revenge. The De maine dye is a secret still, eo you may cease fretting about that. My mother, who knows nothing, sends you her love. In a day or two I shall simply tell her that the engagement is dissolved." Three ntocths after the dispatch of this letter Alan's manager ceased from troubling, for the new firm failed irre trievably. "Hang it all!" said Hugh to his con fidential assistant. "We have got the correct ingredients, man. It must be in the mixing that we fail." And when his speech found its way to Alan's ears he simply laughed. "It was Delilah wLo failed," he said to himself, "not the mixing." And then, with a new, cl:.d hope springing in his heart, he joined his sisters and his sis ters friend Monica in the drawing team.

One warm morning in the spring of 17S0 Mrs. Slccumb was sitting on. the broad piazza about her home on a large plantation in South Carolina. Her hus band and many of his neighbors were with Sumter, fighting for the strug gling colonies, but on this beautiful morning there were almost no signs of war to be seen. As yet his plantation had not been molested, and as Mrs. SIo cumb glanced at her little child playing near her cr spoke to her sister, who was her companion, cr addressed a word to the servants there was no alarm mani fest. But in a moment the entire scene was changed. "There come some soldiers," said her sister, pointing toward an officer and 20 troopers who turned out of the highway and entered the yard. Mrs. Slocumb made no reply, al though her face became pale and there was a tightening of the lips as she watched the men. Her fears were no allayed when she became satisfied that the leader was none other than the hat ed Colonel Tarieton. That short, thick set body, dressed in a gorgeous scarlet uniform, the fiorid face and cruel ex pression, proclaimed the approaching officer onlv tco welL But the mistress gave no sign of fear as she arose to lis ten to the words of the leader, who soon drew his horse to a halt before her. liaising his cap and bowing to his horse's neckr he said, "Have I the pleasure of addressing the mistress of this plantation?" "It is my husband's." "And is he here?" "He is nor." "He is no rebel, is her "No, rir. He is a soldier in the army of his country and fighting her invad ers." "He must be a rebel and no friend of his country if he fichts against his king." "Only slaves have masters here," re plied the undaunted woman. Tarleton's face flushed, but he made no reply, and, turning to one of his companions, gave orders for a camp to be made in the orchard near by. Soon the 1,100 men in his command had pitched their tents, and the peaceful plantation took on the garb of war. Returning to the piazza and again bowing low the British colonel said: "Necessity compels his majesty's troops to occupy your place for a time, and I will have to make my quarters in your house; that is, if it will not be too great an inconvenience to you." "My family consists at present of only myself, my child and sister, be sides the servants, and we must obey your orders." In less than an hour the entire place was transformed. The white tents cov ered the lawn, horses were tied to the high rail fences soldiers in bright uni forms were moving here and there. Be fore entering the house tbe British colo nel called some of his officers and gave sharp orders for scouring tbe country within the neighborhood of 10 or 15 miles. This sharp command was not lost up on Mrs. Slccumb, nor was she slow to act upon it herself, as we soon sball see. But for the present, trying to stifl.3 her fears, Ehe determined to make the best of tbe situation and avert all the danger possible by providing for the comfort of Tarieton and his men, and according ly she had a dinner soon ready fit for a king, and surely far too good fcr such a cruel and bloodthirsty man as Tarie ton soon was known to be. When the colonel and his staff were summoned to the dining room, they sat down to a table which fairly groaned beneath the good things heaped upon it. It was such a dinner as only the South Carolina matrons knew how to prepare, and the men soon became jo vial under its influences. "We shall have few sober men by morning." said a cap tain, "if this is the way we are to be treated. I suppose when this little war is over all this country will be divided among the soldiers. Eh, colonel?" "Undoubtedly the officers will occu py large parti cms of the country," re plied Tarletcn. "Yes, I know just how much they trill each occupy," said Mrs. Slccumb, unable to maintain silf-tce longer. "And how much will that be, mad am?" inquired Tarieton, bowing low. "Six feet two." The. colonel's face again flushed with anger as he replied, "Excuse me, but I shall endeavor to have this very planta tion made over to me as a ducal seat." "I have a husband, whom you seem to forget, and I can assure you he is not the man to allow even the king himself to have a quiet seat on his ground." But the conversation suddenly was interrupted by the sounds of firing. "Some straggling scout running away," said one of the men, not quite willing to leave the table. "20, sir. There are rifles there, and a good raany of them, too," aaid Tarjctcn, rising quickly and rushing to the piazza, art example which, all, including Mrs. Slccumb, at ence fell owed. She was trembling now, for she felt assured that sfce could exnlain the cause of the ccm- soticn. "May I ask, madam, " said Tarieton, framing to her as scon as he had given his orders for the action of the troops, "whether any of Washington's forces are in this neighborhood or not?" "You must know that General Green and the marquis -are in South Carolina, aad I have no doubt you would be pleased to see Lee once more. He shook your, hand very warmly the last tinie he met you, J am told." An oath escaped the angry colonel's lips, and he glanced far a moment at the scar which the wmmd Lee had made fry left on his hand, but he turned abruptly and ordered the troops to farm cn the right, and he dashed down the lawn. A shout and the sound of firearms drew the attention of Mrs. Slccumb to the long avenue that led to the house. A cry escaped her at tbe sight, far there was her husband, followed by two cf her neighbors, pursuing on horseback a band of five Tories whom Tarletcn had sent to scour the country. On and cn they came, and it was evi dent that the pursuers were tco busy to have noticed the army of Tarieton. Broadswords and various kinds of wea pons were flashing in the air, and it was plain that the enraged Slocumb saw nothing but the Tories he was pursuing. Could nothing be done? Would they run into the very heart of the camp? Mrs. Slocumb tried to scream and warn her husband, but not a scuntl could she make. One cf the Tories had just fallen, when Ehe saw her husband's horse sud . denly step and swerve to one side. What was the cause? Sambo, the slave whom Mrs. Slo cumb had dispatched, as scon as Tarle tcn had come, to warn her husband, had started promptly cn his errand, but the bright coats of the British had so charmed him tbat he had lingered about the place, and when the sound of the guns was heard Sambo had gone only as far as the hedgerow that lined the avenue. Discretion became the better part of valor then, and the negro in his fear had crawled beneath it far shelter, but when his frightened face beheld his master approaching he had mustered courage enough to crawl forth from his hiding place and startle the horses as they passed. "Hoi cn, massa! Hoi on!" he shout ed. Becognizing the voice, Slccumb and his followers far the first time stopped and glanced about them. Off to their I left were 1,000 men within pistol shot. ! As they wheeled their horses they, saw a body of horsemen leaping the hedge and already in their rear. Quickly wheeling again they started directly for the house, near which the guard had I been stationed. On they swept, and, , leaping the fence of lath about the gar ' den patch amid a shower of bullets they scarred through the open lots. Another shower of bullets fell about them a3 their horses leaped the bread brook, or j canal, as it was called, and then almost ' before the guard had cleared the fences they had gained tbe shelter of the woods beyond and were safe. The chagrin cf the British Tarieton was as great as the relief of Mrs. Slo cumb, and when cu the following day the troops moved on the cordial adieu of the hostess led the colonel to say: "The British are not robbers, madam. We shall pay you for all we have taken." "I am so rejoiced at what you have not taken that I shall not complain if I do not hear from you again," she re plied. And she neither heard nor complain ed. Louisville Courier-Journal. Sacred Threads and Cords. The sacred thread of the Brahmans is well known. It is a caste distinction assumed at an early age and never part ed with. It must be made by a Brah man and should consist of three strands, each of a different color, 48 yards in length, doubled and twisted together twice, the ends tied in knots. It must be worn next the skin, over the left shoulder, hanging down to the thigh on the right side. The three castes of the Hindoos are distinguished by the materi al of these threads cotton for the Brah mans, hemp lor the warriors and wool far the artisans. The Parse es also wear the sacred thread, and boys of 7 cr 9 are invested with it, the threads used being made always of fibers of the sum tree. Monier Williams describes the sa cred girdle of the Parsees as made, of 72 woolen threads, forming a flat band, which is twined three times around the body and tied in two peculiar knots, the secret of which is known only to the Parsees. The use of "medicine cords" is com mon among -North American Indians. Mr. Bourke describes these warn by the Apaches. These consist of one, two, three and four strands, to which are at tached shells, feathers, beads, rock crys tal, sacred green stones and other arti cles, doubtless employed symbolically. Chambers Journal. W here Prisons Are Untenanted. The inhabitants of Iceland are com mended as the most honest people out. Cases of theft are almost unknown to them, and a murder does not happen in a generation. There is only one police man cn the island, who spends six months cf the year in the north and the rest of the time in Reykjavik, where the only jail is located. According to the islanders, this prison is a magnificent building, in that it is built of stone, and they think it is a direct invitation to wrongdoing, as an inmate of the prison lives in a nice room, enjoys the privi lege of repesing on a real bed and eat ing bread at meals, luxuries which an ordinary Icelander scarcely ever has the opportunity cf indulging in. In spite of all these temptations the Reykjavik prison is nearly always empty. Prisons Service Gazette. An Authority. Maud Ob, that's a very, very old joke!
