He Made Amends
When Ned Dalton married Una Per
:klns the village gossips reaped a har
vest. Every one had something to say
except the man whose heart was
smarting under the wrong dealt blm
by the friend and schoolmate of his
boyhood and the woman he had loved
ver since she was a wee lass.
When some of his friends came to
him to offer sympathy, Tom Reed met
them with an Impenetrable reserve.
He turned with renewed fervor to his
work upon a wonderful Invention,
which he never ceased to believe
would one day make his fortune.
Una and Ned went to housekeeping
tn a cozy little cottage on the edge of
the village, and for a time It seemed
as If the dark prognostications would
Then Ned got Into bad company and
neglected his wife and home. After
the baby came it was worse. Una
-expostulated, entreated, rebelled.
They quarreled bitterly and one
dark, dismal November night Ned
took the midnight train to Greenfield
and the next morning was speeding
away on the Northern Pacific express
to Seattle, the gold fever in his veins
and the Klondike a dazzling vision be
fore his eyes. He left a letter for
"I've gono to make my fortune In
the gold fields. If I never come back,
marry Tom. He always loved you,
and it will be some amends for the
wrong we both did him.
Una read the note with blinding
tear, and fancied her heart was bro
ken. But as the months passed and
grew Into years, and no word came
from her husband, it was Tom she
thought of most.
For the first year after her husband
left she watched every mail, hoping
that it would bring her some message.
Now five years had gone, and she had
given up all hope.
One day as she came home from
work, her mother met her at the
loor. "Una, we have heard at last,'
ahe said, as she put a western paper
In her daughter's hands, and pointed
to a small notice marked in blue pen
Died In Denver, May 18, Edward
Dalton, aged 32. WeBtbrook, Conn.,
papers please copy.
"Now Tom will surely come," Una
thought. But be did not.
One day she learned that he was III
tn dire poverty In a neighboring city.
She went to the address that had been
given her, and stumbled up the dark.
Ill-smelling stairs to the wretched hall
bedroom that he occupied. Knocking
timidly at the door, she received no
response. She opened the door softly.
"Una!" He had awakened and rec
"Una, why have you come?"
"To ask your forgiveness, Tom."
"You had that long ago. Do you

think I don't know what you have suf
fered?" "Then why have you stayed away
all these years, Tom?"
"Can you ask? Look around. What
have I to offer any woman. You've
had enough of poverty, my girl."
"But your Invention.- Surely, Tom,
you can Interest some one in that."
"I've tried, Una every friend I

Mr. Norton? He made, a fortune In oil
last year, and has plenty of ready capi
tal." "Why do you think he would help
"From something bis wife told me.
You know, she has been such a friend
to me, Tom.
That was the beginning of Tom's
good fortune. Mr. Norton was Inter
ested in his behalf and advanced
funds. Soon Tom had regained his
former strength and was working all
day and long into the night at the fac
tory which bore the name of Norton,
Reed & Co.
Una and Tom were married on tho
day that the factory wheels first start
ed to run, and even the village gos
sips admitted that they would surely
be happy at last.
And so they were until the tMs
Under the window he paused and
turned. A wealthier firm than Norton,
Reed & Co. manufactured sweaters
and caps at prices with which they
could not hope to compete. Tom was
in despair, for again ruin stared hlin
in the face.
One drizzling night a stranger
alighted at tho station, took tho only
cab the village afforded and told the
driver, Old Bill Streaker, to take him
to Tlionins Heed's. On tho way they
"Did you know a fellow who lived
here once by the name of Ned Dalton.
I met him out west," the stranger said.
"Did I know Ned Dalton? Well. I
guess 1 did. Every one knew him.
Good hearted as tho day was long, but
shiftless. Just about broke Una Per
kins' heart, anil played Tom Reed a
mighty dirty trick. Tom and Ned
were chums till Turn fell In love with
Una, and then Ned cut. him out. Darn
ed if I know how lie did, though, even
if lie was u handsome cuss.
"But she got her reward all right.
Slio and Ned lived a cat and dog life,
and one night he sneaked off to the
gold fields. She never see hide nor
hair of lilin after that, till one day
she heard ho was dead.
"Then the married Tom. That's just
about a year ago. They were happy
as clams at first, but they've had
mighty mean luck of late. They're
poor as a church mouse, they say."
When they got in sight of tho
house the stranger gave the old man
a dollar and dismissed the cab.
Lights gleamed from tho liltlo cot
tage. Tho stranger stood a long time
leaning over the pate, smoking his
cigar. Then ho threw it aside, set his
jaw. squared his shoulders, opened the
gate and walked up the path. Under
the window he paused and looked In.
Tom sat at tho open fireplace star
ing in at the fire. Una sat ut his feet,
leaning ngainst his knee. Her boy,
sprawled at full length beside her,
plaved with a kitten. Una's face was
turned toward the window, and it look
ed wan and white In the firelight.
Tom's hand was resting lightly on her
A cold December rain was falling
hut the drops on the cheeks of the
stranger were warm. Then he turned
and walked rapidly away in the dark
ness. A week later Mr. Norton came to
Tom. his face radiant with good news.
"An order for l.iHlO sweaters, caps
and leggings from Messrs. Lucky,
Strike & Co., Chicago. Tom!"
After that orders poured in so rnp
Idly thnt Tom could hardly fill them,
and with every order came a check
in payment. Other firms, peeing tho
output of tho factory, gained confi
dence In them, and gave them their
orders, and In a few months the busi
ness was on a paying basis.
Then one day Tom read the fol
lowing article, clipped from a Seattle
"The proprietor of the Lucky Strike

EXAMPLES OF RUSSIAN RULE.
How Czar's Officers Dealt With Un
An English writer tells some extra
ordinary stories of Russian rulo tn th
far east. "It is not necessary," he
says, "to repeat here tho talo of the
horrors of Blakaveshchensk, hut a
personal friend of mine Is a witness
to their reality. On his way to that
city while two days' Journey down the
rivw fce saw floating on the water the
corpse of a Chinaman. Then he
passed another and another; then two
together tied by their pigtails; thon
more until as he drew near the city
tho drowned bodies lay so thickly to
gether that the whole broad sweep
of the river was one dark masa ot
floating dead. Tied together by their
pigtails, and many of them horribly
mutilated, the dead Chinese in their
hundreds. In their thousands, stretch
ed from bank to bank, a moving river
of the dead. In the spring of 1901
another friend of mine was traveling
In Manchuria. He was accompanied
by his Chinese comprador. When
they left the railway line and struck
across country in carts the land be
came suddenly dead; each village
as they entered it was deserted.
Signs of life, recent life, were there
In plenty, loaves of bread in the ovens,
pigs In the yards, fires In the bouses,
but no people, not a sign of man, wom
an or child. He had come on busi
ness, to buy pigs' bristles, and In or
der to buy It was necessary to find
some one to sell, but no one wns
there. The first day they wondered
the second they consulted and then
the comprador said he had a plan.
Would the master stay a long way
outside the next village quite hidden
and let him go on alone? The master
could and did, Tho explanation was
simple but sufficient. The Russians
had occupied Manchuria for a year
and the Ohincso were acquainted with
their rule. Seeing a whlto man com
ing toward the village they naturally
mistook him for a Russian and tied,
man, woman and child, leaving all
their earthly possessions behind them,
hoping perhaps that he would be con
tent with loot and leave life alone."

A noticeable feature of tho new
frocks for the little ones Is the con

Tne liking for this combination of
