I got to thlukln' of her, and a-wnndem what aba done, That'all her sisters kep' a-gitting married one by one,. And har without no chances—and the beat girl of the pack— An old maid with her hands, yon might say, tied behind her back! And mother, too, afore she died, she ust to Joa' take on When none of 'em was left, you know, but Hyaline and John, And Jes* declare to goodness 'at the young men must be bline To not see what a wife they'd git If they'd got Evallne! I got to thlnkln' of her, as I say, and more and more I'd .think of her dependence, and the burdens 'at she bore, Her parents both a-beln' dead, and all her aisters gone And married off, and her a-livln' there atone with John— You might aay Jes' a-tollln' and a-slavln' out her life For a man 'at hadn't pride enough to git hlsself a wife— Less some one married' Evallne, and packed her off some day— So I got to thlnkln' of her—and It happened that-away. —James Whltcomb Riley. WAS In the midst of preparations for leaving Manila for a trip to Ja pan, so there was plenty for me to do but here I aat half way op the stalrcaae, wasting precious time talk ing to old Ram Rao, the Cingalese Jewel merchant. My bouse waa situ ated directly opposite the camp, where the troops waited for the transports to take them homeland 1 waa never tired of watching these vendors of flawed sapphires and Slam rubles, which were apt to drop from their crude settings at the first wearing, trying to induce the soldiers to buy .their.wareB for. wlyes and sweethearts at home. They occasionally paid me a visit, and sometimes I picked up a good pearl or opal for a small price. Of all these mysterious, soft-eyed people, Ram Rao Interested me the most On the way out, via Suez, I bad spent four delightful days at Co lombo, and the old man, who was very homesick, used to like to come and talk to me of the Jewel shops of his native city, and of the beautiful En glish bungalows and the Cinnamon Drive, which had so impressed me. Remembering the beauties of that land of spices and flowers, I did not wonder that the poor soul felt that Manila was "ail the same as hell." To-day he was crouching beside his boxes, a curious figure with a square of checked cotton wound about his nether limbs, so that It looked like a long tight skirt. Like most men in Manila, he wore a white linen coat, but his long hair was drawn up be hind Into a Psyche knot, and his tor toise-shell comb was pushed back un til it made a crown, the ends to\vard bis face. Just behind me on the steps squat ted my worthless little Filipino maid, Portuna. She should have been at the sewing-machine, where I had left her with strict injunctions to finish her work without delay but I was to interested in listening to Ram Rao that for the moment I did not notice her. j, "Yea, Memsabib," he was saying, "I go home to my country. You buy only this one beautiful pin. It Is a gift at seven rupees. Three days ago a sol dier offer me for it fifteen dollar gold, I say no, but to-day with seven ru pees more I buy passage on the steam er that goes, to-morrow to .Ceylon." He held up a breastpin formed of two tiger claws, fastened together with a clumsy band of gold, set with garnets. It was extremely ugly. "Oh, Ram Rao," I protested, "I don't want the thing." "Oh, but Memsahib—only seven ru pees, and then I leave this horrible city. You so good to me, I never for get, and some day you come to Cey lon, you find Ram Rao there to show you things most wonderful the tour ist never see, and he take you where you buy pearls and ivory elephants for a smile." I was weak, and yielded. I did not want the iatrocious piece of Jewelry, but I was homesick myself, and sym pathy alone made me take the pin and give Ram Rao his five dollars. His old eyes sparkled, and wltfi a gesture of infinite grace he kissed the hem of my linen skirt, then turning to bis box took out a little gold ring aet with a small Mue moonstone. "If the Mem will wear this," he said, "she always have the good luck and blesa the memory of Ram Rao." "Oh, no, Ram," I said, "keep the ring. You might sell It for some thing." "This ring 1 sell never," he said, firmly, and looking not at me but at Portuna, mumbled a. few words In a strange language. "Ob, senora," said 'the woman, ea gerly, "take the anlllo—-it Is of no value. He feel bad you no take— mucho malo. you no take," I was struck, as I had sometimes been before, by the curious kind of Freemasonry which seems to exist be tween the races of the East. Here was this stupid, flat-nosed Malay woman who seemed to fully under stand the feelings and even the lan guage of Ram Rao, with his lofty car riage and high-bred, Intellectual face. I slipped the ring on my finger, and Ram departed* heaping blessings on my head. "It seems to me you're looking un usually well this evening," remarked my husband, as we were seated at the dinner-table. "Oh, my dear old boy, how can I, In tills old Jusl I protested. "I do need some new ball-gowns sadly, but I thought I would get one more wear out of this and save my money to in vest in Japanese crepes and gauzes. I am so glad that I'm not looking like fright in It. though." I had been asked, as one of the sober matrons of the arAy set, to give out favors at the bachelors' cotillion that evening. Tom drove with me to the Potenciana Building, then went to the club, promising to return for ma when the dance was over. There was a larger gathering than •sual that evening. The cotillion club had Increased In size, and several dis tinguished people honored us with their presence. We had a major-gen Kal, an admiral, and a high official The Blue Moonstone. -'Vf' v' ,f- of the civil government there that night As I seated myself at the favors table, little Tom Macon, of the artil lery, rushed up. "My! Mrs. Crane, you do look stunning to-night! Yon simply have got to corns and dance. Don't sit here, come and Join our gid dy circle. I'm awfully sorry I en gaged my ,partner so long before hand!" Tommy was a nice boy, and, if I had been married only five years ear lier, might have been my son. Such outspoken admiration on his part was rather Vsurprise. "But, Tommy," I said, "I'll dance, of course, if I'm needed, but I have no partner, besides I came to give out fayprs." "i?here"cre plenty of dowagers here to do that," he said. The high official was approaching. I knew him allghtly. He was a very pompous person, and I had always found him rattier hard to talk io. "I have been tlod by these young people," he said, with a wave of his hand toward a group of cotillion man agers, "that I am expected to renew my youth to-night I have not danced the german for many years. May I have the pleasure of dancing It with the belle of the ball?" "If by that sounding title you mean myself," I answered, immensely flat tered, "I shall be most happy," and we took our seats in two empty chairs in the cotillion circle, Just as the mu sic began for the first figure. The high official danced abomina bly, but I did not find him hard to talk to that evening. He was not at all the kind of man I had supposed him to be. He was Jocose—Indeed, flirtatious, and be whispered stilted compliments in my ear all the time we sat together. I must confess that this time was rather limited, for I was constantly on the floor. This was a surprise. I had always enjoyed a good dance, and was rather a favorite chaperon with the young people but such attention as I received this evening had been unprecedented for years. I waa past my first youth, and there were many young and pretty girls present but I noted it with astonishment I waa ths belle of the ball. Before the evening was half over I was laden down with favors. Young naval ensigns, whom I scarcely knew by sight gave me paper hats and Japanese toys, and then bore me off In the waltz with an unmistakable air of triumph. Haughty officers in the division staff, who always-wore such a preoccupied air when I met them on the Luneta, that I almost hesi tated to bow and disturb their weighty cogitations, came to me with offer ings of fans and wooden shoes. The general and the admiral hovered about my chair until the high official became quite grumpy. When Tom came In later In the evening, he stood watching me with a surprise which I could not help but feel was unflatter ing. At the conclusion of the cotillion, my partner escorted me to the dres£ Ing-room door, where he expressed the wish to "wait upon" me soon (he never made calla.) He bade me good by with an almost fatuoua. smile as he pressed—nay, squeezed my hand. "Well, old lady, yoa've done pretty well," said Tom as he edged into the victoria with me and my favors. "The children will think that Santa Claus Is abroad In the land. There's enough stuff here to trim a good-sized Christ mas tree." "I really had a delightful time," I said. "Why, Tom, I felt quite as I used to as a girl at out dances at home. Do you remember that sum mer cotillion, where we first met?" ."Remember! I should think so! That was nearly twenty years ago. I, a callow second lieutenant fresh from West Point and you a slender little girl in a pink frock! You were aw fully pretty then, but and here my husband went on to say something foolish, which was quite unusual for blm for, happy as we were, with us those things were more often under stood than mentioned. As I was preparing for my needed repose that night I took off my rings as usual to lock them away in. my Jewel-case, and dropped one, which rolled off Into some dark corner. I looked for It for a moment but being very sleepy and seeing that only the little moonstone ring was missing, I postponed the search until morning. I then informed Portuna of the loss. She told me-later that after looking thoroughly, she had been unable to find the ring. I was almost sure that It had rolled underneath the wash stand, but when we moved that piece of furniture and it was not there,' I dismissed the thing from my mind, as the article was really of no Intrinsic value. That evening as my carriage stop ped by the bandstand on the Luneta, and as I exchanged greetings with my friends, I saw many of my partners of the previous evening. A few of them stopped for a word or two. bat many of them passed on witn merely a bow. I was rather amused to see staff officer who had nearly- shed tears the evening before, when a pre vious engagement had prevented my accepting from him a tin trumpet be decked with ribbon, pass me by with a stony sitare. He never saw me at all. Indeed, I could not but remark that the fervor of my admirers of the night before had waned perceptibly. Upon reaching home that evening, I found an unpleasant episode in prog ress. As we drove through the front door, Into the stable, which occupies the ground floor of most Manila houses, a l«ge group of servants, 'children, and chickens stood watching a fight between Domingo, the stable boy, and Juan, the cook's assistant As Domingo was belaboring his an tagonist about the head with a brass cundlestlck, the consequences threat ened to become serious, but the co cbero, descending from his box, lay about blm witn his whp until finally the combatants separated. I stopped to inquire into the causes of the a (My. When a Filipino is an gry he is very incoherent, and the mixture of Spanish and Tagalog which the two culprits poured forth, was quite unintelligible to me. From the cochero I gathered that somebody had promised to marry them both, and that each was determined to murder the other in consequence. After threatening them both with the cala boose (Jail), I ascended the stairs, and there received Portuna perched on the newel-post her bare feet tucked up under her. red skirt her hair freshly a anointed with cocoanut oil, and her eyea dancing with an unholy Joy. I could not help feeling that she was at the bottom of the whole affair. Two days before I left for Japan, Portuna came to me and said that she was unable to go with us. She In formed me that nothing but the. fact that she waa, *to be a matrlmonia Would have Induced her to leave the children and myself. "Whom are you going to marry, Portuna?" I asked, wondering wheth er Juan or Domingo were to carry off the prize. "A man muy rico, .senora," she de clared, proudly. "He give me beauti ful Jewels and fine oasa. You see him often on the Luneta—Simon Se bastlano." 'I gave a start of surprise. Sebas tiano was one of the most influential Filipinos In Manila. I simply could not believe that ugly, undersized Por tuna could have captured his fancy. He was good looking, too there was a strain of the best Spanish blood In his veins be had been well educated, and was high In the ranks of the Fed eral party. It was as much of a mis alliance for him to marry Portuna as for the scion of an aristocratic New York family to seek In marriage a Bowery factory-girl of the most hum ble antecedents. The more I thought of it, the most unlikely It seemed and when she Informed me that she had been brought up in bis house as the daughter of his cochero, the news was more Incomprehensible than ever, knowing as I did the class distinctions of these people. For the next two months the chil dren and I reveled in the beauties of Japan. By October we' returned to the head of the family, who was hard at work in Manila. I was greeted with the pleasing news that orders were on the way for us to go home. So I determined te enjoy as fully as possible the last weeks of our sojourn in the Bast When we were bidden, then, by one of the various political parties to a great banquet, I decided to go, as'It was to be nearly the last of my Fili pino entertainments. All the American civil officials and many officers of the army and navy were there. I felt quite lost among so many personages of rank. I was taken out to the repast by a nice in fantry major, and we sat far down below the notables. Some distance from where I sal, I saw my late cotillion partner talking to a Filipino woman on looking more closely I perceived that be was en gaged in an animated conversation with—could it be Yes, It certainly was—Portuna! Portuna, quite as on beautiful as ever, bat gorgeously ar rayed her camisa stiff with embroid ery, a spray of diamond roses four inches long In her hair, and about her neck a string of pearls for which I would have given ten years of my ex istence. She seemed to find the re marks of the high official interesting Indeed, she laughed In a coquettish manner and as for him, he did not seem to find the banquet the perfunc tory bore these affairs usually are to men of his kind—he really appeared to bo enjoying himself. When the banquet was over, Por tuna came up and greeted me with effusion. She was not proud. She asked about the children with tears in her eyes, and promlsA to come and see them. She introduced her hus band, who regarded her with adoring eyes. I found him to be very intelli gent and we talked together of the traffic question and of the future of the Malay race while we were sitting out a dance (I aat out several that evening). The high official rushed up to us. Not having seen him for two months, I supposed that he had come to pay hi. respects. He barely nodded to me. "Oh, how do you do, Mrs.—er— Crane." Then, "Where Is that attrac tive little wife of yours, Sebastlano? I want to see if she will dance the Rigodon with me." With that he darted off, and I soon saw him standing, with Portuna as a partner. The next time I saw Portuna was on the transport Sheridan. We left for home on very short notice, and in some way she heard of it, and appear ed just before the vessel sailed, bear ing gifts of pian and jusi and Canton linen for me and the children. She was the very same Portuna, but the evident affection she had for me had awakened quite a warm feeling for her In my heart so I submitted to her embrace, while the children clung to her with tears. The last gong had sounded, and when half way down the gangway Portuna turned and waved her hand. The sun fell upon her costly rings, and' among the diamonds and pearls, I noticed upon her little finger the glint of a blue moonstone. Leaning over the side of tbe ship, Torn and I saw her enter a comfort able little private launcn, and steam off In state. "What a promotion for Portuna," I remarked. "How do you suppose it ever happened?" "It is rather remarkable," said my better-half, as be lazily flicked the ashes from a Germinal cigar, "but then you know, for a Filipino, Por tuna Is really a very pretty woman." —San Francisco Argonaut HISTORY MU8T BE REVISED, If All that Beads Unfavorably Should Be Stricken Out. Since 1635, when the great and gen eral court declared Roger Williams to be unfit for fellowship and banished him from the state, there have been seven different petitions to have the edict revoked. All have received the Indorsement of religious as well as po litical leaders, yet there has never been a sufficiently, vigor JUS expression of public sentiment to bring It about The last petition bfore the legislature represented all shades of religious feeling. It was signed by descendants of those who had been instrumental In driving Roger Williams to Rhode Isl and nearly 800 years ago. But tradi tion Is powerful, almost sacred, and what has gone on the statute books stays. The failure to repeal any law that has long been useless is an exam ple of the same kind. In view of such facts, it Is some what surprising that there is going on now another movement to have the name of the apostle cleared. In spirit the people of this State respect the memory of Roger Williams as deeply and as .sincerely as the citizens of Rhode Island or of any other New England commonwealth. The persons who are determined to have the ban removed appear to be endowed with much of tbe unquenchable enthusiasm of Williams himself, which enabled him to conquer In spite of all obstacles and persecution. The leaders of the new movement are now circulating a petition at all the watering places In New England, and after signatures have been obtained here it will be sent to St. Louis for the approval of all the New Englanders who visit the World's Fair, and thence to different sections in the West where puritan sentiment is strong. It is hoped to have the namea of 1,000 men and women of prominence in this State alone, and itiany more names from Massachusetts and New England people in other parts of the country. However, the edict against William was not peculiar to the times. Other fearless thinkers In politics and theol ogy were banished. If we are going into the matter of erasing from our of ficial records everything that reads un favorably now, our whole history will need to be remodeled, revised and ex purgated. The temperament of purl tan times was cold, stern and brlcliy. Why try to make it appear to be what it was not?—Boston Advertiser. HAVE HIQH OPINION OF JOHti First Person Inquired After in Tokio Vimm the Kx-Chumpion. "When I first went to Tahiti," said a traveler from the south seas, "I landed on one of the remote islands. The first night I went in state to visit the chief. He was a fine old fellow, fully 6 feet 2 Inches in height, and a man every pie who had lived on his Island for a time. Through an interpreter he ask ed me all kinds of questions about,' them—if they were well, if their hair was getting gray, how much money they had, etc. Then conversation lan guished. "At length I heard him repeating to the Interpreter a word that sounded like 'yonelsulwan.' The interpreter seemed to catch it finally. He said: 'He wants to know how is John L. Sullivan? Is he fighting as hard as ever?" 'Oh, no,' I said truthfully. John L. Sullivan isn't champion any more. He was beaten by a big man from the West, and a man from the big Islands beat that man, and another big man from the West beat him.' "When this was told to the chief he looked me all over and said something in a very positive tone. 'He tells me,' said the Interpreter, 'that he doesn't believe you. He thinks you don't like John L. Sullivan.' "Everywhere I went on the Islands It was the same story. When they found that I was an American they all asked for John L. "It appears that the Americans first began to come in numbers to the isl ands about the time when John L. was supposed to be unbeatable. These Americans introduced the boxing game. "It was a great hit Every native wanted to learn. And when the Amer icans told of their great champion tbe natives took It all In and made him a, tribal tradition."—Detroit Free Press A Promising Customer. The brisk, well-dressed stranger stepped Into the corner drug store, and passing by the boy who usually attend ed to casual customers, approached the proprietor, wh'o, with his back turned, was rearranging some goods on a show case.

"He told me If ever 1 need ed anything in this line to come to.you. He spoke of you as a man on whom one could rely with perfect confidence, who carried only the best of every thing, and with whom it was always a pleasure to deal." "The Senator Is very kind," said the druggist beaming with gratification. "He Is one of my best customers. What can I do for you this morning?" "Well—er—this morning, ap it bap pens," said the stranger, witn a shade less of briskness, "this morning I should like, if you will allow me, to consult your directory."
