For on her breast lay a sleeping baby; a brown, round, dimpled thins, with silky rings of hair and a red mouth. It was so warm and soft, and she loved it so much. ' Just as the boat reached land the baby awoke and smiled at Marianina ifer he was Marianina in the dream), and with a rush of mother love which warned her all over she stooped to kiss it.

With a little conscience Istiieken shriek she rose and went again to the chapel. The next nignt il a ! the same tiling, and the next, j She was in despair. Haggard and wild j eved she w ent about, going from her eld! to the chapel and then back to her i cell, where she did heaven knows what to suhrtu" her unruly neari. aiiu toe worst of it was that she loved her dreams. In the midst of her prayers the feeling not the thought, for her mind was bent resolutely on her prayer but the feeling would come to her. "Tonight I shall see it again and hold it in my arms." Verily the devil must have been rub bing his hands for joy. And thin one day the archbishop came and said mass witli much splendor in the chapel. It was a beautiful ser vice, with a great deal of gold embroid ery and incense, for the church though humble in doctrine is very magnificent in practice. Poor Sister Veronica as she knelt thought of a plan whose audacity half flightened her. but to which she made up" her mind, for she must have help, she thought, or she would die. Con sciences nie Ilk' men. When they have had too much artificial stimulation they sometimes become unruly. So Sister Veronica went to the abbess, who was the archbishop's sister, and the abbess arranged for her a private audience with his t xeelleney. Sister Veronica knelt and kissed the archiepisi opal hand, which was well shaped and beautifully kept. But when Iris excellency wished to bless her she shrank back. "No, no," she cried. "I am too wick ed! I am a sinful woman, eccellenza." The shadow of a smile crossed his ex cellency's face. He had seen this sort of thing before . So many bad people live their lives through thinking them selves good, that perhaps things are balanced when some few good people imagine themselves bad. He wait'd in silence for a minute, and then asked h-r what it was that troubled her. And she told him all about it. beginning with the bird on the we'd curb. "1 tried, oh. I tried not to think, f-i-ellenza ." she said; "but the sun and the spring smells, and the sky, and then, eeerllenzn, the flower. Just such a Slow er, and I hadn't set n one for -40 years. I'm a miserable creature, not tit to be in this holy house." "My daughter," said his excellency kindly (she was about ten years older than he himself), "you were ill in the winter?" "Si, eccellenza." He paused and looked at hr keenly. "I must not tell you that it would be no sin to sit and dream deliberately of things that can never be that is a sin for those even whom God has not called to a nunnery. But in the spring ah!' His excellency sighed. "And you are not well yet, I see. Give me your wrist." Sister Veronica held out her knobby, big veined hand, and the prelate put his finger on the pulse. "Ah," he said again, Sister Veronica folded her hands in her sleeves and waited. "You are still weak, my daughter. It is well to fast, and to mortify the bixly. but not too much. And as to the dreams, no one, not even the Holy Father himself, can control his dreams. Si you cough, too?" he broke off. "Si eecellrriza. I always cough a little." "I-Tm. You must only do your best not to think of these troubling tilings, and let the dreams take care of themselves. It is no sin for a woman to love children, my daughter, and you are none the less a woman for being a nun." After a short pans he added: "Now go. I will speak to the abbess about you, and for the p resent 1 dispense you no vigils and meat once a day." Sister Veronica stared, an honest peas ant stare. She had come for spiritual ad vice, and she was given meat. Then sud denly she said in a timid tone of protest: "But. eccellenza. I like meat." The archbishop bit his lip. "Tanto meg no." he said, "so much the better. When yen are well again you can stop eating it-" "And you think I will be forgiven? That the gool God will pardon me.' "The good l?od can pardon a great deal, my daughter, or there would be no world." Then, seeing the puzzled expression on iier good old face, he added: "I. as your s-niril ual ndviser give von absolution tor ; -,-.1,, - lie Teoweit- inni KnaoowN rejtit- thing that would nave Deen a siaue .i.e. he not been a prelate crossed his face again. Then he added: "For your dreams." Sister Veronica tumbled down on her poor old prayer worn knees and kissed his ring again. Then he raised his hand and blessed, and as the little, black tigure disappeared he wiped a tear from his excellent eye. "And there Is so much real sin in the world," he said aloud. t , . , Sisttr Veronica, after a short visit to the chapel, went out to the garden and sat down on the stunt bench. There was a group of lit lie pale green points at her feet. The lilies -of-the-valley were commg. "Meat everv day," said Sister Veronica. "Thank God." But she was not thanking Ood for meat.

During our temporary absence from the sanctum the other clay Major Pud dle culled and fired three bullets into our corkoo clock in the most heroic manner. If the .Vlajor continues on the giddy career he has mapped out he will feel a pain some day. A New York advertising agency wants to know if we will make affidavit that our circulation is one billion copies per week, as advertised. Of course, we will. An editor who won't lie about his cir culation and swear to it would be lock ed up as a dead failure these days. And while we are swearing we hsd just as soon swear to two billions as one. When the Grass Valley Tribune says that "high society in this town was shocked," etc.. it means that Major Har- per was snocKeu. nc i me ioft., ,.... ..-j ihat town, and vet he doesn't know enough to eat bean sottp with an oyster j fork. . Many of our subscribers have com plained because we have not pitched into the trusts, but we have reasons for keeping quiet. When a man holds the position of Mayor, Postmaster, Senator Deputy Marshal, Fish Commissioner and Game Warden, and is looking around for three or four other good things, he can't consistently howl out against any other trust. Justice of the Peace Williams, of this town, is a good follow and a man of integrity, but if he can't improve on his spelling he ought to step down and out. His warrants for "Jon Dov.V" -jnri his "Defeandints" and "Plentiffs - make the spelling dooks iook very men. There was no close approach to a tragedy m the common council iwni last Tuesday night, as statea oy our esteemerl contemporary. Alderman Murphy contended tnat a motion w adjourn was in order while a resolu tion was bing voted on, and he would not eive in until we levelled a gun on him. Had we been obliged to fire we should only have split one of his ears. The Arizona Kicker employs no traveling asrents to take subscriptions. and whenever a man is found at work collecting money it won't do any harm to pull him up a limb three or foui times and then w-hisner in his ear.

To everv man an opportunity comes which, if taken, leads on to fortune. This is the day of combines and great achieve ments: there never were such opportuni ties offered as now to make independent fortunes on small investments. The busi ness of mining consolidations offers more attractive features than any other, and where the money is judiciously expended and the property handled by men ot ex perience and ability, there is no more risk and much larger returns than in most lines of investment. Pluck, experience and science have opened up a mineral empire in the West that gives the opportunity sought. Vast areas of mineral lands great fissure veins are lying undeveloped, waiting for the intelligent opening up to make vast fortunes for the men who take held of them. As this requires money and experience, the man of ordinary means is barred from this great lield, except I y combinations, but by proper consolidation it is opened to him. The history of every great enterprise proves this, and gold min ing is pre-eminently the Held of today. The opportunity for moderate capital is not after stocks have reached their high and become dividend payers, and can be bought and held only by the rich, for then you buy a coined dollar.
