Ted, the adored; Ted, the only male in a family ot nine, was ill. Mrs. Baker hung over him in all the moth er's agony, vainly beseeching him to take his medicine, while down in the library the other members of the fam ily huddled in a terrified group, speak ing in whispers or gazing blankly at the certain misery of the future. "A bad case of pneumonia," Dr. Newman had said. "I must have a nurse. One will be here in an hour." Then he had started out of the door. Now, in this family of adoring women were many prejudices. They had no "advanced ideas," and to them all nurses were "bold and forward creatures, not fit for Ted to meet." Be sides, hadn't they read only last week of a man who had married his nurse, and didn't that prove that all mem bers, of the profession take advantage of a man's weak and susceptible con dition to make love to him ? Was Ted, whose matrimonial prospects were unknown to him, the subject of numerous . family discussions, to be coerced into marrying a nurse? Eld not each sister have a best friend saved for him, and why, the whole future happiness of , the family depended on the sort of girl he married! A nurse! Cousin Lizzie, a tiny woman of uncertain years, rose to the emergency as she heard the click of the door-latch, and burst oat, "Oh, doctor, a nurse! Con Eider our feelings!" Dr. Newman had no time to under stand, and he answered shortly: "Feel ings? I am considering your feelings. The boy is very 111. I am unwilling to trust him in any but a trained hand." ' Miss Brooks wondered why she was kept in the parlor, and why the family came in one by one to bring her a glass of water, to offer her fruit, to show her photographs of the Paris ex position. She began to find the situa tion interesting. "Mother says she can't leave Ted, but we must make a change," reported Alice, the youngest daughter, in the library. At the same time Cousin Lizzie came from her inspection in the parlor. She had made the excuse of finding out the price, and Miss Brooks had answered "Twenty-five dollars a week as a rule but $30 for contagious diseases .and men." No appreciation of the humor had come to Cousin Lizzie, and now she said: "If he doesn't die he will marry her." in the manner of one who declined to determine which contin gency would be worse. At last, with an expression of conscious heroism, and a murmur of "protecting the dear "A bad case of pneumonia." boy. she walked grimly back into the parlor. - - Miss Brooks offered no help. The stylish figure and the waving auburn hair loomed as dreadful danger before the nervous little lady, white the charming manner was conclusive proof ,that she stood between Ted and de struction. She found herself dashing madly from subject to subject in her effort to come to the point, when a sound reached Miss Brooks' ears that brought .her professional duty before J 4 . her. She rose and said decisively: "Will you show me where I can change my dress? I think the patient needs me." Cousin Lizzie sprang in front of the door and the tiny form quivered with excitement. She laid a trembling hand on Miss Brooks' arm and looked up ap pealingly. "My dear," she said, "we can't let you nurse Ted. He's all we've got, and and you're too pretty." There was a twitching of the face, but otherwise Miss Brooks controlled herself perfectly. In a calm tone she asked. "Shall I have the office send you a nurse that is not good looking?" As the door shut Cousin Lizzie sank exhausted into a chair, while a sympa thetic crowd offered her water, a fan and appreciation. An hour later Mrs. Baker was strug gling "with the delirious Ted. 'Lie still, dear, and. let mother "You're too pretty." smooth your head," she implored help lessly. "Oh! Mummie, don't bother so. The fellows are waiting for me," and' he sprang half out of bed. A tall figure suddenly appeared be fore him and strong hands laid hold of him. "You must lie still," a strange voice said, and he found himself look ing with amazement into a pair of gray eyes, disputing his will. ' "Must?" he asked. No one had ever said must to him. "Must," was the answer, with a tightening of the lips. He lay still to puzzle out the state of affairs. His head was raised and a glass held to his lips. He had not said he would take anything. In his amazement he drank the medicine without protest ing. Miss Stewart's best friends could never call her pretty. The Baker fam ily did not care to see what was in her face, being merely on the guard against certain qualities supposed to be irresistible to the stronger Bex. The family was terror-stricken Into full appreciation of her professional quali fications in the ensuing days. As the sound of labored breathing or of pain ful delirium rent their hearts, they felt the value of her calm, alert strength. and took comfort. When the crisis was passed and Dr. Newman an nounced. "He will get well, thanks to his nurse," they could find no words for their gratitude. During the days of convalescence she proved as resourceful as at the critical stage, and the family now no ticed her non-prcfesslonal qualifies tions at first with considerable awe. later with much appreciation. One day Ted, . bundled up in rugs, had been taken to the piazza. The sound of voices came to the family. "She's teasing him again," said Alice, with satisfaction. He had always teased hes, and she found the situa tion delightful. , "We can rest assured he will never fall in love with any one who manages him as she does," said Cousin Lizzie. "How thankful we should be that I was able to save him from that dan gerous nurse!" .If the family could have seen Ted's face at that moment, when Miss Stew art was saying, "The man la getting maudlin; I'll send some of his adoring (family to him, there would have been , doubt in their minds. Fortunately, Miss Stewart had perfect control ot herself and of him. During the next year Te4 worked as he had never worked la his life, and during the last six months the importance and the Irregularity of his engagements, completely mystified the family. . The mother understood. She had been the confidant of a frenzied son during the six months Miss Stew art had sternly forbidden him to call or to write, "so you can forget me If you want to. and I shan't seem to my self to be taking advantage." When he explained to his mother that Miss Stewart had done work in the world and he had not, so he must make him self worthy of her, the mother could only mutter bitterly to herself, "Worthy of a nurse!" When, however, she watched the spoiled boy come into his . manhood and heard him ' pro nounced a rising young lawyer-the bitterness lessened. The announcement of the engage ment was a painful occasion to the family. Ted's remarks, when . he caught Cousin Lizzie's "A nurse to get him after all!" were in no measured terms. "Will she manage you, Ted?" Alice asked after the storm. "I hope so, Lai," he answered, as he pulled her curls. "You, too, I guess." The family discussions thereafter turned into " reminiscences of Miss Brooks' charms and reflections upon the danger of trying to avert another's fate. . ' Miss Stewart never understood why her friend. Miss Brooks, greeted the announcement of the engagement with such rapturous delight. A RAT-TRAP EXPOSITION. Queer Kind of an Exhibition Just Closed at Copenhagen. The first international exposition ot rat traps recently c'osed at Copen hagen after a most successful display of rodent exterminating devices. As might have ben supposed in such a momentus affair. America would not be overlooked, and it is equally cer tain that Yankee ingenuity would be suitably recognized in gold-medal awards. As a matter of fact, two gold and one bronze medal actually did go to American exhibitors. In all these were 100 sovereign exhibitors, to whom five medals" were awarded in addition to the American awards, while all the makers of rat traps in Denmark, as well as numerous inventors, took this unusual oppoiiuni y to exhibit their contrivances. Rats have become such a pest in Denmark, as well as in Swe den and part of Germany, that an ex position was decided upon as the only adequate way In which the public could be made acquainted with the latest appliances. That it was no second-class exhibitlcn is prcvid by the royal patronage of Prince and Princess Christian of Denmark and the visit of an official representative of Gsrmany, Count Schwerin. Preparations for this curious gathering had been under way for over three years. It was organ ized by the "committee for the ra tional extermination of rats in Den mark," which for a numbar of years has carried on a crusade against the rodents. The most successful meas ure has been the payment of bounties amounting to abcut 3 cents for every rat killed. In the couise of eighteen weeks 102 000 rats were destroyed in Copenhagen by the bounty claimants. Sweden offered a similar government bounty beginning Ma ch 1 list, and in five mon;hs 103.000 rats have been killed and paid for in Stockholm alone. The alarming multiplicity of rats is evidenced by the record of some of the smaller towns in Denmark, where as many es five rats per inhabitants have been destroyed in less than two years.

Field Marshal Earl Roberts, former ly commander-in-chief of the British forces In South Afr.'ca, in a speech this week said that everything was bsins done to end the war quickly. Lord Kitchener's demands for men. horses and stores were always promptly met and there was no fau't to fled with the men or their officers. This comes pretty closely - to ac knowledging that the Boers are no mean foe. for the war seems almost as far from ending as when it b;gan.

Likely as not our friends have troubles. of their own and it's altogether .too bad to risk breaking the possible weak link of the chain of friendship. And this la just what lots of us do. When everything is using us awry we go to see Sue or Kit. It shown the pale green silk Sue has just nought for a waist we remind her how ghastly Louise looked in that shade of pale green and furthermore acridly admit it's a color we'd never choose for our selves. On the other hand, if we fa- vor(?) Kit with our society we prob ably give her to nnderstand that we think her children ought to be turned out during the visit, or, if she has no children, we perhaps suggest that there ought to -be a law . compelling people to make their maids wear felt- soled shoes. Or perhaps it's the dog or the sunshine. And then no doubt we go home and' waste time wonder ing why friends aren't what they used to be. So take that famous piece of advice and "don't."

Women's allowances are more often than not cut down to the slenderest proportions; and it is astonishing what they are expected to do with their money. Men, on the other hand, control their own purses; they have no account to give of the way they spend, and if they kept an account of the money they so "generously" give way. they would find that they spend sums which they would account appalling were they on the debit side 'of "wives and sisters. It Is a favorite formula of man that woman is reckless and extrava gant; but if one comes to go into de tails, instead of looking at totals, it will generally be found that the tables can be easily turned, says the Phila delphia Inquirer. In nine cases out of ten, nay, in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred could the truth be known, a man tips, and tips generously to save himself trouble, and in order to keep up appearances.
