That night Sister Veronica dreamed a

dow about which bl-w long tendr-ils of
scarlet runners. Below her was the sea
and she was watching a fishing boat
with rust colored sails as it bounded
alone; toward her. And he knew thai
in the boat was (liuseppe and he was
coming home to them. 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. ISut b fore her Hps touched the half

That day Sister Veronica did severe
penance, eating hardly anything and
avoiding the garden as though the devil
were nwailing l' r there in person. And
sh. went P sleep at night with her
hard bony rosary under hev cheek, and
Ave on her lips.
I'.ut she dreamed again of the baby,
ii was lauLrhing and ( rowing and daric-
i ing so that she could hardly hold H.
She invoke with her arms folded tight
: across he,- breast, and cried when she
.found tin m emptv. "Bimbo. Bimbo,"
j she murmured. 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

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.

A New York advertising agency wants
to know if we will make affidavit that
our circulation is one billion copies per

An editor who won't lie about his cir

while we are swearing we hsd just as

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

Deputy Marshal, Fish Commissioner and

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

not eive in until we levelled a gun

we should only have split one of his

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. Those who
having large or small amounts to invest.
GET IN ON THE GROUND FLOOR are
the ones to reap the larger rewards, and
such a ground-floor opportunity is the first
offering of the Special Founders' Shares of
the Hazleton Consolidated Mining and
Tunnel Co., at the extremely low price of
cents per snare.
