The Pity of It.
There is a great subject for a ser
mon in the printed anuounceient
that the home of Mrs. William Thaw
had been mortgaged for $100,000 to
pay the expenses of her son Harry
K. Thaw's trial for the killing of
Stanford White. It's the old story
of mother's love and the sacrilice na
ture so frequently demands from the

In disacussing the chances of De
mocracy in the next eamraign the
Gre' nville News says: "Bryan has
drifted away from the true principles
(f De'mocracy as they wvere taught
and practiced by J<4 ferison." What
atre the t rue prin)ciples of Democracy
as they were interpreted and p)rac
ticed by Jefferson, and wherein do
they differ from the Democracy of
W. J. Bryan? Will the News please
enlighten us. The News g< es onf t'o
say that the party has too many false
lenders, and it may~ he said to be
driftmng aimlesslv. With true Do

A stone doorway so cleverly construct
ed that it defied detection led to a set
of steps, which in turn took one to a
long, narrow passage. This ended in
a stairway fully a quarter of a mile
fromn its beginning. Ascending this
stairway one caie to a secret panel
through. which, by- pressing a spring,
the interior of the castle was reached.
The location of the panel was in one
of the recesses in the wall of the chap
el, near the altar. It was in this chap
el that Yetive exchanged her male at
tire for a loose gown weeks before, and
the servant who saw her come from
the door at an unearthly hour In the
morning believed she had gone there
to seek surcease Crow the troubles
which oppressed her.
Lorry was impatient to rush forth
from his place of hiding and to end all
suspense, but Quinnox demurred. le
begged the eager American to remain
in the passage until the night of the
10th, when, all things going well, he
might be so fortunate as to reach the
princess without being seen. It wa.
the secret hope of the guilty captain
that his charge could be induced by the
princess to return to the monastery to
avoid complications. Ht promised to
inform her highness of his presence in
the underground roolm and to ariange
for a meeting. The inlserable fellow
could not fiud courage to con festFr his
disobedience to his trusting inistress.

glad to seek his bed.
"Is she there?" whispered Lorry, diz

Will you explain to her how I came to

close the door. It is unlocked. She
may swoon or scream, and you must
prevent either if possible. In an hour
I shall return and you must go back to
the passage."
"Never! I have come to save her and
her country, and I intend to do so by
surrendering myself this very night."
"I had hoped to dissuade you. But,
sir, you cannot do so tonight. You for
get that this visit compromises her."
"True. I had forgotten. Well, I'll
o ack with you, but tomorrow I am
your prisoner, not your friend."
"Be careful," cautioned the captain
as he imoved away. Lorry feverishly

door and waited with motionless heart

"But you can do nothing, dear, and

She darted to the desk, snatched up

desolation settling down upon him.
