One of the earliest conventions to be held in
1905 Is that of the Young Women's Christian a Ban
ciation of the States of New-York and New-Jer
sey, which will convene In Rochester on February
23 to 26, Inclusive. It will be the eighteenth an
nual convention of the association affiliated with
the Young Women's Christian Association American
committee. It la significant of the prosperity of
the Rochester association that it now Invites the
annual meeting to its city, for two years ago the
branch was an the verge of financial collapse, and
Its existence came perilously near being wiped out.
The State secretary. Miss Fiances Field, of New-
York, wa^ summoned to Rochester, and for nine
months held the post. She disorganized existing
committees, created a new board, and caused to
have organized a financial board of men. who should
run the finances of the association. Miss field per
sonally solicited funds from among the wealthy
business men of Rochester, and In due time collect
ed' about $15,000, which saved the association from
its interest on mortgage and other debts. Thai
association since that time has been meeting ltd
running expt-n.se*, and has been making a worth>
record, having one of the largest memberships In
To the annual meeting each association affiliated
with the State •association may appoint frem Its

What U the "simple life"? 1 have read Mr. Wa*

In answer to the Manhattan inquirer, may I
say that "the simple life" is freedom to grow
toward the best. It is to live as much as possi
ble out of doors in all weather. It is to use your
house, your home, for a. happy, intelligent- restful
place for yourself and your frineds— to "belong
to your belongings," but to remember that they
belong to us, to use to the best advantage of
yourself and those about you. The fimp^ life is
to go without gladly all that one cannot afford,
but to have all of the best things that one can
pay for. It Is to know what the best things are
and to enjoy them. It may not be always to
"Plough off" what some people call "extrava
gances." It Is to slough off superfluities and to en-
Joy and use to the best advantage all the really
good things.
It Is to do what you, yourself, feel is right, and
expedient; not to get ahead of your neighbor or to
make an appearance.
It is t*> b" real and not a ?ham. It is to b« true
and not a ?>nob. It la for city people to use to the
"Promise me." begged BurgbJcy, feeling: for
the mustache of which he hnd been so proud,
and failing to find it In his agitation, "that you'll
chuck 'bridge* and dissolve partnership with
this— this unspeakable bounder— from to-day.
Promise!" . * (
Phlllida opened her eyes upon her young men
tor and laughed derisively.
"Kill the goose with the golden eggs, collapse
like a burst bubble, and drop out of one of the
smartest sets In society because I can't afford
to dress as well as my friends! No, thank you!"
"Then why— why did you tell me you were
doubtful about the propriety of the game you're
playing? Why burden me with a conndence that
will make me nothing short of brutally mis
erable?" demanded Burghley. smarting under
the derisive tone and the sense of having been
played with.
"Frankly, I don't know. Female criminals
sometimes give themselves away in that irre
sponsible fashion, don't they? I've heard of one
1 who pencilled down the "murders she had com
mitted, with details and dates, on the sticks of a
fan. You are my fan, I suppose. No, of course,
I wasn't going to ask you to stay to luncheon.

and help me to think out my Greco-Persian

what, and blundered out of the house, treading
on Mis. Fostrooke's Spitz as he took his hat

'bridge,* and I can't afford to bet on horses,"
was Burghley's candid. if unpolished, reply.
Lord Cantrips contemplated the good looking,
boyish face with twinkling eyes set in a brick
red face.
"Perhaps not; but you can eat. I always get
a young fellow to lunch with me. if one's at
pilnable. No pick-me-up equal to seeing one's
vis-a-vis tackle the menu with a will," sighed
Lord Cantrips.
"I shan't do that— at least. I don't think so!"
Burghley said, doubtfully.
"Hipped. Lost at br . No! you don't gam
ble, you've told me!" Lord Cantrips, insinuated.
"But if somebody else — somebody in
whom you're Interested" Burghley pulled
himself up, blushing crimson.
"That's enough to put one off one's feed
before thirty." Lord Cantrips agreed.
"Suppose you lunch with me at the Paddock
Club, and tell me who she !»".""
"I won't tell you," said Burghley, "but I'll
lunch. At least. I'll try to."
Seated at a snug little table in one of the
great bay windows of the Paddock, the peer
and his young companion discussed a sole and
lamb cutlets, and truth compels the statement
that Burghley's lack of appetite was not ap
"Ice pudding. Do have some, and I'll look on.
At your age 1 could— what couldn't I eat, by
Jove! Ftilton to finish with and a glass of
Carboneil— the cheese straw is a burden to my
digestion. And as you won't confide in me with
regard to your gambling enchantress, I'll con
fid" In you. At least. I'll tell you a little story—
In confidence, of course — about a girl my wife
and I are rather fond of." Lori Cantrips chose
a eia-ni- and looked rather hard at Burghley.
••She- Burghley's sharp teeth bit through
the cigarette he held between them. ,He red
dened to the tips of his ears.
"She's an unmarried girl, as pretty as they
make >m, and keen on sport of all kinds. We
tee a good deal of her. We're votaries of
'bridge': It used to be poker and then baccarat
—and this girl plays a good game. Cool. too,
as a veteran hand. But you're not smokin'."

It Is for country- people to live an intelligent life
and to use, to the best advantage all tha magnifi

privilege of a country home, and to go to tha elty
as frequently as purse and strength will permit, and
Judgment approve, to keep in touch with the life
there, that broadens and inspires.
It Is to travel reasonably and comfortably, not
to go ruehlng about on "»xertions a^ter pleasure. "
It Is to see and know this beautiful world If you
can. It is to stay at home sometimes— often.
It Is to read the best books and the best maga

best music, it is to get rid of all unnecessary arid
inartistic furniture and furnishings. It is to have
time for "what is worth while -friendship and
duty and work— "legitimate, individual, vital work."
Let us take out of. and give to life what is "vital
and essential." an Anna Robertson Brown advises,
and let us "drop pretence and worry and discon
tent and self-seeking." To be practical: I began
the simple life by standing in the doorway of each

the Gamblin' Girl is uncommonly nice. That's
why I wanted a confidential chat with a fellow
I know to be a friend of hers. Do you tumble,
"I understand, rr.r lord." said Burghley, in a
voice quite new to himself, "our Invitation was
not haphazard."
"Barely." Lord Cantrips nodded. "Let me
explain. This girl I'm talkin' of—the G. (i. dye
take me? She's been winnln'. a good a-»al iately.
That's what makes it so difficult for me to
speak. Lots of people win— women and girls
as well as men, but— and hsre comes the painful
part of what I want to gay— not under similar
circumstances. They tru.nt to the fickle o»y lady
with the wheel; they don't use means to gain
her suffrages that are— ahem!— nefarious."
Burghley leaned over the little table, as white
as Its cloth. "My lord." he said, grinding the
words out between closed jaws, "do you insinu
ate that this young lady cheats" "
"By gad. Burghley. I am compelled to admit—
I do!" blurted out Lord Cantrips.
"And do you als« know, my lord, that my
dearest hope is to call her my wife?" came from
the white lips of the young man. Lor ' ("an

"Good lor'! My dear fellow, I'm infernallj
sorry," he gasped." "if it's true, because it means
that you must hear the whole story. For six
months my wife has been buyin' cards, spec**

entees recommended to us by— not to put too
fine a point upon It— Miss Fostrooke. She sup
plied the first dozen packs; we found the capi
tal. You might have knocked me down with the
ace of spades, my dear fellow, when, three weeks
ago. I made the discovery that alt the cards
were marked. The pattern on the back of each
deviates, subtly, but dlstingulshably. from th«
pattern of the other. It's an abominable fact,
but It is a fact and my lady Is as upset as I am.
I believe she has made me swear never to tell,
but. hang it, if only for Miss Fostrooke's sake. I
shall have to break the matter to her family.
And meeting you this morning, and hearing why
you looked so' infernally upset, I Jumped at the
chance, don't you know, of doing the breaking
through you."
Burghley clenched hia strong; right hand upon
the tablecloth, and looked with satisfaction as
the square knuckles whitened through the sun
brown "There's going to be breaking in an
other direction." he said, very distinctly, but
very quietly. "My lord, has It never occurred to
you that this young lady of whom you speak
may be an unconscious tool? From whom
should she procure the address of the New-York
flrtn who make a specialty of supplying marked
cards, and I don't doubt other swindlers' acces
sories"? Do English girls usually advocate such
article.? for sale? Do American girls, for that
matter? Sift your circle of bridge playing in
timates for the man who is most likely to have
made a catspaw of Miss Fostrooke before you
broach this matter to her family or to herself.

Witnesses Praise the Morals of'
Washington, Jan. — Testimony intended tor
prove that the Mormon morale is of the highest
type and to refute the word of witnesses who
have declared the contrary to be true, was of
fered by counsel for Senator Reed Smoot t:>«
day. W. T. McConnell. formerly a United Statso
Senator from. Idaho, and twice Governor of his
State, and Representative Burton L. French, a
member of the present Congress and re-elected
for another term, were to-day's witnesses.
It was the opening session of the defence hi
the investigation. Senator Knox. a new mem
ber of the committee, attended for the first
time. The committee room was crowded. Thsrs
Is a sentiment in the committee In favor of
pressing the investigation to a c!os*». and with
that end in view It was announced that, be
ginning to-morrow, longer sessions of the com
mittee will be held.
Both witnesses to-day denied many state
ments directed against the Mormon Church and
Its alleged Interference in political affairs. Ex-
Governor ii Oaaaasl said that the Gentile me
bers of the Idaho ie^islature have not so high
morals as the Mormon members, and that If It
were not for questions of geography and knowl
edge of legislative needs, the interests of tha
State would be better served by an entire Mor

vided with him. Was it dishonorable? You see,
sharing losses, one didn't feel it so much."
"And you won," said Lord Cantrips, fingering
his double chin.
"We won quite a pile," said Phltllda. "It
seemed to me such a ripping arrangement, and
the rroney was useful, you know. And ther»»
was the fun of having a secret compact. I'vo
worn this ring as the badge of ours." She held
up her slim left hand,
"Ah! very pretty!" said Lord Cantrips. "Per
haps you would lend it to me for a little while."'
She drew it off and handed it to him. and hs
aeld It to the light, twinkling more than ever,
and then dropped it into his waistcoat pocket.
"I hardly think unmarried girls ought to hays
secrets with men of Cole tough's stamp," nodded 1
the peer. "I'll return him this, and you had
better drop him and his friends, the card
makers," he added, at hazard.
"Captain Colclough Is one of th» firm." said
Phillida, innocently, "but I don't think he care*
to, have the connection talked about."
"That 13 why he asked you to recommend th»
firm, eh?" asked Lord Cantrips, twinkling mors

"I suppose so," said Phillida.
"My dear, go and kiss my wife, and let Mr,
Burghley take you home," said Lord Cantrips.
To Lady Cantrips he said afterward:
"The girl was only a catspaw. as you said.
As for Colclough. the lady's knight errant ha*
given him a thrashing, and he has had .•» hint
from Scotland Yard, through me. I think he
will find It convenient to loan his patent cards
from the other side of the Atlantic for a year or
so at least. I have another little invention of
his here — a sham diamond ring with a mirror in
it. which, I am afraid, he will miss." He held
It up.
"Tfiiy, Phillida has been Rearing, it. or on*
Just like It!" cried Lady Cantrips.
"Hum!" said her lord.
"What do you mean?" asked Lady Cantrips.
"I mean that we have entertained a profes
sional card sharper, my dear." returned Lord
Cantrips, "and that he has Inveigled the daugh
ter of a dear old friend of mine to be his un
conscious fence and innocent decoy."
"Such a thing can't possibly occur again

"It can't." said Lord Cantrips, twinkling as b*>
walked toward the door, /'for thers will not bo

And the twinkling old peer kept his word.
The Grand Charity Bazaar at the King's Hall
was a great success, and the tableau that gained
most applause was the Campaspe. It presented
a charming girl in the most modern of attire —
Phillida. arrayed in the freshest of the Ascot
frocks— sitting on a green chair In a garden of
to-day. Before her knelt a Cupid, a Bond-st.,
up-to-date Cupid. In the well cut coat and
trousers of the present. To Burghley. who Im

wife. As for returning it to the people who
