Lenny, I had really "ex pected better things of you," continued Frank, with a reproachful glance In her direction. "I know how it is," faltered Belle; "Lenny thinks I ant too young and foolish to he your " "Will you hush:-' cried Lenny, ftamping her little foot angrily down on the gray kitten's tail, and flashing her eyes from one to the other. "I should like to know if you are not six I whole months older than I am. Belle Fairfax! and I'm sure I don't care," continued Lenny, growing suddenly very hite and sinking hack in her chair, "but hut you might have told me before. Go and marry him as soon as you like, but don't stand there mak ing faces at tne any longer." "Well, I am sure I am glad of vom permission. clear," Belle replied, with a melancholy little laugh; "but. Lenny I want you to be glad of it; because I shall want i ou to come to us often, until you are married yourself." Lenny opened her eyes, and looked wdth angry astonishment at Belle's blushing face. "Come, Lenny," said Frank, sitting j down and taking the little restless hands in his own. "he vour own loving self. It isn't a had thing to have such a jolly little stepmother as Belle; and if' But that sentence was destined never to be concluded, for both Lenny's arms were around Frank's neck. "Now, Fenny. I am sure this is really pood in you," broke in Belle. "Of course, it will seem uuoer for me to be Frank's mamma, and consequently yours, but then you know you nee never call me anvthing but Belle, of course, you couldn't do it'." she added, laughinir. Lenny looked up n meek as a kitten, all defiance vanished from her laughing c - - s. i "I think it will be just lovely." she. j exclaimed, hiding her head again on Frank's shoulder; "and of course we ! shall call her mamma, shan't we i Fran!:?" I "Then you were only making fun. ! after all?" asked Belle. "You thought you would frighten me, because I left you so lorn; alone?" I "Yes," murmured benny, softlv. I But she never told anybody but her i husband w hat her jealous heart ha ; imagined that he had learned to love 'host, and that Belle meant to be his I wife. j "Pshaw!" said Frank.

THE THREE GRACES. lbim 'iMi! -j i rr- Hope FIXDIXU THE "3IAUXET." BY M. QUAD. Several months previous to our ar rival at Rio in the whaler John Davis, a craft called the "Magnet," containing about sixty gold seekers, had left that port for the coast of Africa. As she had not been spoken, and as we were bound to those seas, we were asked to keep a lookout for signs of her. Forty days later, one day w hen I was aloft" in the crow's nes. I sighted a derelict not over four miles away. What I made out was a craft with all her masts, yards, bowsprit and standing rigging gone. She was nearly bows on to me, so I could not make out how badly her bul warks were damaged. The stump of the foremast was about twenty feet high, while the others had broken off lower down. The hull was very buoy ant and floated high, but, as was to be expected, it presented a weather beaten and forlorn appearance. The deck house and cook's galley werestill stand ing, and I thought 1 could make out a lot of wreckage tloating alongside. On descending to the deck I reported my discovery to the captain, and an hour later, the wind being very light, we were up with the wreck. To our se-ai r-uip.ose, tie- drifting hulk proved to be that of the missing "Magnet." From the time of sighting her to the moment of htaving to, we looked for a signal to show that some one was still living aboard of her. but none was shown. When w e had her under our lee the crew ran aloft to look down upon her dec ks. The fall of the masts had crushed her bulwarks, but the damage had been repaired afterwards, though the new work had not been painted. As for the hull, it was apparently as tight and buoyant as when it sailed out of Bio. It was terribly weather-worn, however, and seemed to be sailing in a bed of grass. WE BOABDFD HER AT THE BOWS. A musket was brought no and jirad three or four times, and the crew shouted in chorus again and again, but as we got no response the captain or dered a boat lowered to go aboard. We boarded iter at the bows, and when I followed the captain over the rail I braced my nei es to meet a grewsome spectacle. Nothing, living or dead, was in sight, however. Every bit of the wreck was gray-white in color, because of long exposure to the weather, and here and there about the decks were black spots of decav. There were a few coils of rope, a heiif) of clothing and bedding little better than black mold, and three or four water casks had rolled about with the hull until demolished. The door of the cook's galley was held open by its hook, and we looked in to rind pots and pans hanging up and the stove in good condition. The "Magnet" left Bio with GO adventurers and a crew of 17 men. in the decK house, where the crew was quartered, we found bedding and clothing and sea chests, but nothing to show what had been the fate of the sailor:'. The be tween decks had been lilted up for the passengers. I tit least expected to rind dead men do wn there, hut no such spec tacle met our eyes. There wore bed ding, clothing, firearms, knives, tobac co boxes, bottles and jugs, and other stuff which the passengers wanted for use on the long voyage or after they had landed. Li some of tiie bunks -th bedding was nicely arranged, but in others it was l oiled in a heap. The lamps had been taken down and the oil fioured out of them, and we found on a nail some wicks which had been taken from candles. ISeirh1! here r.or in the deck house above could we find so much as the heel of a boot or shoe. From between decks we proceeded to the cabin. The first sight to greet our eyes was that of a human body hang THAT'S ENOUGH. Hazel Is your engagement an nounced yet ? Helen Well, I've told you, haven't I? Charity. 2 3-''j4 ing by a rope around its neck from a hook in the ceiling. : There was no cdor emanating from it;TThe body had simnly- shriveled up until it was no more than a skeleton. --'On a table just bcvrjnd where the man was banging was the shiu's log, and near it an ink bottle and a pen. The captain took the log- on deck, and very soon announced that it contained some particulars of what had happened aboard. We then made a closer search and found the ship's papers, about $20n in gold pieces, and a bag containing $12a in silver, to gether with several watches and other things of value. Neither the ship's flag nor anv charts were,, -to be found, and not a compass, cjuadrant or sextant could be turned up. The entries in the log book for the first two weeks were in the captain's handwriting. Then came an entry in a different hand, read int; "We found out that they had de ceived us. and sent them adrift in one of the boats," Ten days later another entry in still another hand referred to some of the people sailing away in the long boat. After that many weeks elapsed before there was another entry-. The man now hanging by the neck and swinging to and fro like a pendulum had written in a trembling hand: "I have been all alone for the last ten days, ami for the last four I have fasted neither food nor drink." On the next clay, or the next, he had arranged the rope and put an end to his sufferings. After the gold hunters left the Rio they must have found out that they had been deceived by the originator of the adventure, and per haps blamed the captain and mate as well and sent .the three adrift. After that followed a storm and the wreck. Of the people who left in the boats not one was ever heard of, and the only one who refused to leave the hulk re mained but to commit suicide. We left the wreck to drift whither she would, bearing the grewsome burden in her cabin, and during the next three months she was twice boarded by merchant craft. They found the same sight we did. and continued their way, and she may have drifted for months later before she plunged to her doom or went ashore on the- sands of the African coast. (Copyright, 1903, by C. B. Lewis.) ELECTRIC LIXES IX ITALY. How the Italians Adapt Their Rail waysSpecial Cars Built. In company with the members of the Institute of Flectiical Engineers, t have visited the Adriatic F.aiiway company, Italy, which has recently applied elec trical working to its 67th mile section rr line originally built for steam locoaio tives, and running along the shores of the Iakes of Fecco and Como and from the junction of Colico to a terminus at Sondrio. The achievement is likely to have decided weight in considerations of a similar nature now daily under dis cussion in tireat Ilritain. The portion of the Italian railway on which the work has been carried out is not one that was considered the most favorable for the practical demonstration of elec trical working, but one on which it might be considered that if a successful result were obtained many other sec tions offering less onerous conditions could with absolute certainty be readily con ei ted. In investigating the general methods that have been followed by the engi neers who have t arried out the work on what is known as the Valtellina section of the Adriatic company's system, there is practically no evidence of alteration to the permanent way beyond connect ing the rails at every joint with a stout copper wire, so that the return current finds an easy passage'. It is still possi ble to run steam locomotives over this part of the radiway, and any ot the com pany's ordinary'pa,-"senger or goods car riages can be couoleil on to the electric i train and hauled aloni; just as of old. ' Special cars, fitted with electric mo I tors capable of developing 600 horse power, have been constructed with a small cabin in either end, in which is located the apparatus by which the dri ver controls the starting, running and stopping of the train. 'These cars weigh : about ui) tons each, having a seating capacity for 40 passengers, and can haul ' at a speed of 40 miles per hour five I coaches of the ordinary rolling stock. The goods traffic is handled by specially j constructed electric locomotives, resem ; bling in external shape those of the ! Central London railway, weighing about ! 46 tor.s, and capable of starting a train weighing 270 tofcs up the steepest inline on th? Yaliellina section. The electrical energy is conveyed to : the trains by means of overhead trolley wires, sue h as are seen in everyday use j in connection w ith electric tramways, but there is a difference in the "pres 1 sure" employed of about six to one in order to avoid unnecessary loss in tne long transmission along the line. The passenger traveling by the train finds that he can sit and enjoy the view without the objectionable-smoke of the locomotive, and that a regular speed is maintained throughout the journey. Oradients and curves, which are num erous, are easily surmounted, and there is the satisfaction to the shareholders of the railways of inereaed dividends. The genet al success of the undertak ing can be readily gauged by the fact that a further length of 111 miles, giving a connection with -Milan, will be con verted to electrical working as soon as possible.
