"Well, you've a right to your opin ion," an Id Maud, "Come along If you want, oiily don't lunch and don't feel like milking fun, We'll bine dinner here at hulf past the and then we ran get there early." J i inn waa tlie youngest of the trio, barely twenty, hut she hud a pood hraill sooiew here behind flne round blue eye of her. She am no mere in -offer, either.

Maud aald that aim no one knew these people no one rould tell whether Joan waa really faking rorrert de duetiotia. Thereupon It waa decided that Joan should try Mr. Iavi. who bad only Jut bi-n transferred to the Jv'ew York office and about whom none of the glrla knew anything aa yet. They had not even beard blin speak, hot had merely watched hltn aa he had come and gone wtth the older members of the (inn.

"Who waa Pamela" ask the tourist, turning Inquiringly to the guide. And that personage merely shrugs hi shoulder, smile and repll!: "That, monsieur, 1 what the world would like to know for here 1 the grave of remarkable woman, the Idol of royal ty, the toaat of From-. Hut who she wss or where site came from are questions that have never been answered. , "Pamela," continue the guide, with that quick grasp of historical !( which la common to those who direct visitor In various sections of Kurnpe, "was the name given to the ln-autlful child brought from Kngland to lie the playmate of the little ones In the j palace of the Hue de Clmrtre. Inter I the Puke of Orleans, liolilen haired, i blue-eyed. veritable sprite, the little j girl won nil hearts, in spite of the fact ; that there waa very evidently a dark mystery about her origin. There were some at court who shook their heads and shrugged their shoulders mean ingly when, as she grew up, the girl called 'Pamela begun to inuue con quests which were more and more widespread. Hut the secrecy which veiled her birth did not affect her popularity In the slightest. She was the Inspiration of countless poets, the cause of scores of duels and when her heart was finally won by the Irish Lord l:dwurd Pit lent Id. "on of the Duke of I,elnsler, there were many who left Purls because they could not bear to see her married to another. "The nnnotincment of her approach ing marriage to Ixird Ildwurd brought from Iondon the same question which Purls had been asking for muny years: 'Who Is Pamela r and In the marriage contract, still to be seen nt Tourniiy, the bride Is described as 'Stephanie Curoline Anne Simms,' known as 'Pamelii,' native of London, daughter of William P.erkele and Mury Slinma.' "Hut this does not, hy any means dispel the mystery surrounding thla most charming of creatures, for the governess of the household of the IMie de Charlies maintained that she whs the daughter of Hritlsh nobility, whllo tlie Masonic Magazine, in Die Issug which appeared within a month after her marriage, declared Hint she was tlie daughter of the duke of Orleans, himself.

"I'.ut no matter. These are only rumors reports, founded only on gos sip. History which Is vague In the ex treme about the origin of the beautiful 'Pamela,' Is only too explicit iih to her adventures: after her marriage. Lord Kdward Pitz (ierahl been me prominent in tristi politics um, like sir linger Casement more than a century later, decided to cast his lot with the French against Kngland. Accordingly, he crossed the channel and urranged for a French Invasion of Ireland, only to he betrayed find hunted, with a price of a thousand pounds upon his head. Those who were searching for him kept a close watch ujMin his wife and Ixird Kdward was finally captured In the apartments of the lovely 'Pamela,' who sold her Jewels and everything shq possessed In a vain attempt to bribe his Jailers. The Irish lord lived only a short time afterward, dying as a re sult of wounds which he received when he was enptured. and 'Pamela' re turned to Paris where she lived unnl her death at the age of fifty-seven.

HOW TWO CKKAT AMERICANS SPREAD LIGHT IN SYRIA. American Interest to the Near East an fortunately founded upon the Idea of missionary Christian service. This type of American activity, though It rtins back tn Syria full hun dred years, has n4 been serious ly vitiated by that aelf rnteret which seems Inevitably to accom pany the struggle for aiart of trade. Probably thl I not due to any superiority of American morality In International affair, a our relations with the West Indies and the Central American states amply prove. A clever Austrian writer has named It for ua 'the Imperialism of the banana." It would be wise of u to think It over and to realise that the banana la useful fruit If properly handled.

To the present time, however, we may well take pride In Amer ican missionary and educational activity In the eld Turkish em pire, and most of all In one of Its agents, Ir.

He said : "I know that, American business men. If the Pnlted Slates should take over the guid ance of Syria, would want to innke money out of us. Hut they would leave us our Independence, and they would leave wilh lis some of the money which they made In our bind, In the form of hospitals find schools." Then with great earnestness he spoke of Vr. Howard Itllss and his fa ther, paying to them and their work a tribute such as few men could deserve: "I owe to my father and mother the fact of my birth. Everything else that I have and am In life, my pro fessional training, my views of life, even my love of liberty, all this I owe to Hiirut college, to old Dr. Hliss and Or. Howard Rllss." The man w ho spoke was not a Christian. He was a Mo hammedan Arab. COMMUNISTIC TO A DEGREE How Unfortunate Bee Which Cannot Perform Its Full Duties I Done Away With. "In bee civilization tlie state Is every thing, the Individual nothing," writes Dallas L. Sharp in Harper's. "Kadi one exists for the whole, but the whole exists for no one. The Individual Is born to serve and the moment he ceases to serve, that moment he dies worker, or drone, or qnuun, even the unborn young In their cradle cells. For let hard times come knocking at the door, widi more hnby mouths to feed than there are stores to feed them from and the tender young are torn from their warm beds and hurled Into the outer cold. Let the last virgin queen of the season he mated and not only does that drone perish In the act, but all the drones In tlie hive no longer needed are bundled, bag nnd baggage, outside, to fumble for one pathetic moment before they die at their own door. I't the worker come home with frayed wing, failing never so little of her full capacity' production, and she Is set upon, never to be seen again In the hive; let the queen-mother, In the height of the honey flow, come short In her prodigious tusk of keeping the colony at Its maximum strength; let her fall off from laying her 2.11 or S.f eggs per day, and a new queen Is deliberately prepared for, the old mother, like any drum, or worker, fall ing a victim to tlie pitiless policy of the state."

"Can't you .sit- down a minute and listen, Clem? All morn lug I've' want ed to talk to you about the composi tion of this."

"Go down to Hie w nod store ; that and get a slice of steak, Idiaii; will give you a breath of fresli air.'' advised Clem, patiently. I Itrlmi hud no desire for steak or for any food, but he experienced a feeling of compunction us he noted how Clem's square shoulders sagged. Quite evidently Clem wns already tired out, and be had a long u ft er bium of lifting heavy boxes mid bar rels Isfore him. "I tell you. Clem, when Tve made, a great name yon I Shall have things easy. You went w ithout a new hut so I could gel those new- paints, and " Clem smiled.
