a row of ancestral portraits on the
wall. "These," she said, sternly, "are
the people on whom you aro determined
to bring a public scandal, Agathu."
It was not tho first time In my experience
that Aunt Penny had
brought mo before this court of the

It was pictured hero. For Instruction, j
correction or reproof, she had always !
brought mo to face these shadows in j
their atrocious frames. To her thev I
reflected the glorious and honorable
past of tho family of Penryn. To me
ihey seemed a quaint, half-Kiddy array
of men and women who, in their day
and time, had believed themselves
unworldly ami correct. Some of the
women woro monstrous hoopsklrts, j
somo of them held up attenuated arms
to display leg-o'-mutton sleeves; others
faccd the world from tho depths
of huge poke bonnets. They were all
object lessons, teaching the absurdity
of somo fashions that have passed

For the most part tho faces of my

eyes there was a look of reproach for

had eagerly paid what tho court
thought wan sufficient balin for Ills

died a bachelor, thus losing caste

peoplo who looked down from tho
wall an I followed Aunt l'enny to
their high tribunal, to explain ,\vhy
the engagement wan broken why I
would not be niarrb-d as she and the
ancestors had expected.
It was a trying ordeal for ue. I
loved Aunt Penny devotedly, and had
spent 20 years under her roof and in

wedding trousseau was upstairs, Rome

and 111?* bridesmaid.'! were In readiness
and on tiptoe; the wedding breakfast
was ordered. I knew that the break

had done.

ryn's Query
oeiuteU Literary Press
I Loon was twenty-two?nil at once separated
us. We had played together In
childhood, wo had been Rweethearta j
In early youth, but with tho wedding
day a week off I felt that I was taking
a mean advantage of a child to marry
Leon. I did not love him.
Hut I might have known better than
to toll this story to Aunt Penny, born
fighter that she was. Since I could
remember, Aunt Penny had never
been so happy as when she was doing;
battlo with some one. 1 loved her
warlike spirit, but when she changed
in a minute to the soldier she was,
and declared, "Agatha, this shall be
looked aftet' Immediately!" 1 saw far
consequences of my rash conduct. ,
She left me with her fine eyes glow- i
[i\K with battle light, and I fled In the 1
limousine that had waited for mo for i
an hour to the oflice of Leon Masters.
He had received the letter that
morning, I knew, if the mails had
done their usual work. Ho took me
to his Inner sanctum and I hurried
my explanation:
" i.eon Mr. Masters?I've told Aunt
Penny (hat you?that you are tho ,
one who didn't wish?she is hurt, '
very much hurt, I,eon, and angry? j
and I thought ttiat perhaps you would
tell her that it Is you who decided
that it isn't best!"
I.eon looked unutterably relieved.
"Is that all, Agatha?" he said. "I
was afraid very much afraid- that
you did not mean?tbat you might i
have reconsidered your letter- that!
you were not -that you wanted to go '
on, you know!"
His blunt words, bis evident satisfaction
with what I hnd done brought
the hot blushes to my face. Ami I
had expert d to find him ovor- ,
whelmed with grief had cvon pic- j
turod his efforts to win me back!
"So," I stammered. "you really '
"No. Agatha, I really didn't, but I
would not have caused you nnv?or?
ombarrassnu nt not for a king's ransom.
And dad had set his heart on

When I readied the drawing room,
wlicri' In* waited. I could not help
thinking how young and handsome
I.'en's father looked. Ho might havo
been forty-five- lie had been a widower
fur many years. He took my
hand In his.
"Agatha! Miss Penryn!" he paid,
"what can I eay to you?what can I
Sitting there wi'h mv hand in his,
I told him the whole bald, disagreeable
truth lie bent over mo when
I had finished.
"Agatha!" he whispered. "Dear!"
T.ovo that had fled from a lone
courtship came to in*' that instant 1
without any courtship. I loved
Leon's father, and I know It. I
found myself swept, unresisting. Into
his arms. Aunt Penny came In soon,
ami wo told her of the change, nnd
restored her to normal afterward.
There was to ho a wedding on tho
day set. I would marry Leon's
father. There would he a little gos- i

buzz of excitement over the marriage
of an elderly man who writes checks
sometimes In seven figures; but
thero would he no scandal. I would
he a mother to Leon, after all; but
never would I dictate to him when j
it came to bis marriage.
When 1 went upstairs on that night
of my second betrothal I glanced
along the wall at the faces of my I
ancestors. They seemed to smile im- I
provnl at mo. all but one. My groat j
uncle, Peter Penryn, lay faco down \
on the floor, a perfect ruin. When i
ho fell, or why. I never knew. Was |
he ashamed of me, I wonder, or was j

The "Indian Antiquary" contains (ho '
following note taken from a "Bombay
(Sonera) Letter" (March 17. 1707), that
appears* In volume I of "Bombay Abstracts."
It illustrates the close control
that the authorities at that time
exercised over religious bodies:
"Upon a dream of a negro girl of
Mnhlm that there was a mine of treai1
urn, who being overheard relating It,
Domo. Alvaros, and some others wont
to the jil.n o anil Sacrificed a Cork and
dug the ground, hut found nothing,
they go to Hundarra at Snlaott, whero
disagreeing. the government thentake
notice of tho saino, and ono of
them, an Inhabitant of Oombay, Ih sent
to the Inquisition at (ion, which proceedings
will discourage the Inhabitant*.
Wherefore the Kenearil is desired
to lasuo a proclamation to release

"That First Invented Sleep."
"Now blessings light 011 him that
first invented this same sleep! It covers
a man till over, thoughts and all,
like a cloak; it is meat for the hungry,
drink for the thirsty, heat for tho
cold, and cold for the hot. It is tho
current coin that purchases all tho
pleasures of the world cheap; and tho
balance that sets the king and tho
shepherd, the fool and the wise man
even. There is only one thing, which
somebody once put Into tny head,
that I dislike in sleep?it Is that It resembles
death. There is very littlo
difference between a man in his first ^
(deep and a man in his last sleep."?

Learned to Drink Coffee When a Baby.
If parent9 realized the fact that coffee
contains a drug?caffeine?which is
especially harmful to children, they
would doubtless hesitate before giving
the babies coffee to drink.
"When I was a child in my mother's
arms and first began to nibble
things at the table, mother used to
give me sips of coffee. Ah my parents
used coffee exclusively at meals I
never knew there was anything to
drink but coffee mui w-itnr
"And so 1 contracted the coffee
habit early. I remember when quite
youhg the continual use of coffee ho
affected my parents that they tried
roasting wheat and barley, then
ground it In the coffee-mill, as a substitute
for coffee.
"Hut It did not taste right and they
went back to coffee again. That was
long before Postum wan ever heard
of. I continued to use coffee until 1
was 27, and when I got Into office
work, I began to have nervous spells.
Especially after breakfast 1 was bo
nervous I eould scarcely attend to my
"At. night, after having coffeo for
supper, I could hardly sleep, and on
rising in tho morning would feel weak
and nervous
"A friend persuaded mo to try
I'oat'im. My wifo and 1 did not lllto
It at first, but later when boiled good
and strong It was fine. Now we would
not give up Postum for the beat coffee
wo ever tasted. V
"I can now Ret good sloop, a*i free
from nervousness and headaches. I
recommend Poatum to all coffee drkikers."
