There wns n touch of tlK -leatfojrlnir breath of autumn In the keen wind which swept over Lyndliurst, nn old colonial mansion on the Hudson near New York. The big- trees on the ter raced lnvtn nnd In the dense wood be hind the house Mere shedding their Bere nnd yellow folinge, und In the ex tensive garden on the left of the en trance not even a belated flower could be seen In the well-arranged parterres. Here stood a marble statue, there a plnylng fountain; the entire aspect was cold nnd cheerless. Within the mansion quite a different scene presented Itself. A footman In livery stood In the vast hall; white capped, white-nproned mnid-servunts moicd about vtith soft trend and so licitous mien. Klvo o'clock ten nns be ing served In the quaint Elizabethan drawing room. A man less than 40 years of age, tall, handsome and with a military benrlng, reclined in a quaint ly curved easy chair before the glowing vood fire with Its old-fashioned brass fender and drngon-slinpcd andirons. The man's face was full, dark and round; his high, broad brow suggested considerable power of Intellect; he wore no beard, and his short thick hair was touched with gray. He had but one questionable feature; an expert physiognomist might lime said that it jwas a pity such a strong face should be marred by u mouth slightly in clined towards weakness. Ills wife, vwho sat near him, was a handsome woman; she was perhaps ns old as he. Her complexion was clear and good; lier teeth were fine and even; between her parted lips they caught the red firelight and threw it back broken into liny gleams. Her hands anil feet were oniall and well shaped, her body pos sessed nn undulating tase of inoeini.it that gratified the visual sense of the beholder. Her hnir was dark brown, her eyes black and sharp, nnd these things, with the general contour of her shrewd face, hinted at French ex traction. When the tea wns brought in a young lady who had been playing a Ileethoen connta on the grand piano in the large bow-window turned to another girl of about her own age who stood by her ready to depart. "You really must stop for n cup of ten, Lottie," Bhe said, laying her jew eled hand on the arm of the Wsltor. "I nm sorry, but 1 shall miss my trnin if I stny even n moment longer; as It is I shall have to uige your coach man to drle rapidly." 'Oh, surely jon arc not going, Mibs Dean," protested Maj. Goddard, rising nnd coming towards them. "We really sec so little of v on, you know, und when ou do honor us it is generally only to the extent of n pop call. I nm really going to incite my ward to downright rebellion against you and all the rest of her old school friends." "That Is right, Guardian." The pian ist smiled as she rose; "you must stand by me. Lottie has such a nice time In the city that she is getting above such a quiet retreat as this." "Oh, it isn't that," laughed the ac cused. "1 do enjoy it so much here and 3 am coming to pay you a good lslt before long. Keully, 1 am looking for wurd to it with a greut dial of pleas ure." "Well, until then we shall have a truce," cried the major, und he escorted the guest to the door where his car riage was waiting. Aslierttntered the drawing room the expression of his wife's face rheted his attention. Mrs. Goddard was watching Miss liriscoe, who had left theplanound was pouring the ten at the low bints table in the center of the room. The look she was phlng his ward was fo full of malig nant dislike tlint the genial face of the .major grew grave. He seated himself in the chair he had just left and eyed his wife attentively. .lust then Miss Uris coe brought a cup of tea to him. "You'll find it exactly right, Guard ian," she said with u smile. "I not only hnow the number but I now under stand the size of the lumps of sugar jou want." "It Is always right, lllanche, when you pour it for me." He would have added further pleasantries to this had he not felt the rigid stare of his wife upon him. "You have nice manners, I must say," Mrs. Goddard suddenly jerked out, "but I presume you were taught in that Fifth Avenue school to sere gentle men beforp ladies." The beautiful girl flushed to her -vavy golden hair. , "Oh, do pardon me, Mrs. Goddard, I 'tm so forgetful; Guardian looked so iiredaftcrhis journey to town that I " "0(i, it doesn't matter in the least," and this retort was emphasized by 31rs. Goddard's ribing, pushing past the girl ond pouring her own tea. Her face was dark with suppressed rage as she took her cup to a window-seat be hind the piano and hnstilj drunk It aft er the mnniier of angry indhidunis. "Xcver nilniV" said Maj. (lodthtrd to Tllauclie, who, with a look of deepening -inburrasjmient on her face, had taken a scat near him; "noer mint), It eun't be helped." "I wouldn't have displeased her for the world, on on jour account. If foi nothing else. I do trv my best to get oi with her, but somehow I never make the slightest progress In the right dl rectlon. I am so awkward," Their voices were so low that thej did not reach the tea-drinker In tht bow window, but she seemed to know that she was the subject of the guard etl col'.oquy, for she glared over her cup -at them like a sullen, infuriated unt iiial. "I assure ydu it Is net your fault, flear," went on Goddard. "tou sec when I told her the other dny that all my mining cntureH had fallen through and that 1 hae now only this estate and a paltry ten thousand a year to keep It up on, It completely broke her to pieces. She counted on my affairs turning out millions, and I did not know It before, but she had laid a great many plans that must now fall to the ground," "Mans?" said the girl, in surprise. "Yes, she had consulted an architect about building a house at Newport and one on Fifth avenue. Oh, it was an aw ful blow to hcrl I wish she could put a better face on, the matter and not take it so very liarrt. As far as I am concerned, I hail made up my mind that matters were not so bad, aftcrall, but she is ambitious, you see, and 1 never was. 1 have grown tired trying to get rich. I would like to rest, but" They heard Mrs. Goddard's cup and saucer rattling as she advanced to the tea table. Then she turned to the floor suddenly and her heavy hllk skirts gave forth a rustling sound as she passed haughtily out into the hall. "0, I say, Jeanne I" exclaimed her husband, rising and going to the (Vjor, but she had gone nut on the lawn, and when he came back to the fire he and his word saw her walking to and fro on the asphalt drive. A moment later she turnetk and pnc nn inaiu'lble order to .lames, the footman, and he came I 4yV h Vr $tt!(7 II If OODDAHD WENT TO THE WINDOW AND BLANCH!-: KOLLOWUD. out to her shortly with a revoherand a box of cartridges. GodtVird went to the window and Blanche followed. "She's going to practice shooting," he said. "When she is full of anger she seems to find a vent for It in target practice. Watch her; she certainly has (he most wonderful marksmunshlp of any woman alive." The major could not help this exhi bition of pride In his wife, and he seemed to hohl his breath in boyish expectation as Mrs. Goddard took de liberate aim at a white envelope which James had pinned against the trunk of a tree about 50 feet from where she stootV Five reports followed one another in rapid succession. "Good! Wonderful!" ejaculated the major, "she hit It four times out of fle. I hnve no idea," and as he said t-liii-GodJard's tone lost a part of It en thusiasm, "I have no idea where sin acquired her skill. She always luught mysteriously when I ask her. It was while she llicd in the west, howexer, 1 am sure. Often she lets slip little allu sions to ranch life and hunting on the plains." lllanche made no response; then was u eoiiflt'jiiitlal note in her guardi an's voice which stronglj appealed tt. her sympathy. It shocked tier sensi tive idealistic nature to have him nd mit that there were pages In his wife's history which een he had not been al lowed to rend. They saw Mrs. CJ odd aril toss the reioher on the grass toward the attendant and turn Into the house. A moment later she passed through the hall and went up the stairway to her own apartment. "There Is- one thing I can not quite forgie in her, dear lllanche." And the majorcaught the soft tiiperinghnnd of his ward and led her back to the lire. "She married me. She must haxe been influenced to become my wife by the fortune she knew 1 possessed, She be trays tlint in a good many ways. She was ambitious; but persons born with craving desires are not to blame for having them, and so I try to overlook this fault in her. Uelng a poor milliner, who came In contact with the rich just far enough to want to have means, it must haie been n temptation to her to marry a man with money. I don't say that she does not love me, for I realW think she does. I should be cry mis erable if she did not." "My poor guardian," said Blanche, tenderly. "You deserve so much. You ought to have all things that belong to good men. I have been very unhappy ever since you told me of yournnuncial loss. You said, I think, that my money was safe?" "Perfectly. I saw to that. I remem bered your father's lust words of con fidence in me nnd I never have taken the slightest risk with your interests. Your fortune is ns secure as if it were in the linnk of England, and the en tiro amount Is earning a good lute of interest." "But I hne no use for so much money," 'said the girl, almost pleading ly, "und I would be so glad If you would take what you need of it." Tlio mujor flushed. "It would be n cowardly thing to do, and it would call forth much t-iitlcism; no, your money Is yours; your father saw that I was sufficiently repaitl for my senices, be sides, nothing less than your entire fortune would give Jeanne all she craves. She did not sleep u wink lust night. I heard her walking- conbtuntly from "the moment she retired till dawn. I went to her door twice nnd rapped, but she would not admit me. Some times 1 am afraid," nnd the mnjor touched his broad forehead signifi cantly. "roor guartllnnl" There was a sug gestion of tenrs in Blanche's eyes and her voice quivered. "If you won't let mo help Jou with my useless money what can I do? Bo you fancy thls thls trouble has not made me unhappy, too? Your face is my barometer. When it indicates that your spirits are de pressed my sky becomes clouded, and then I don't care for anything else. It used to be so while I was at school. Your visit on Friday was the solo event of the week, nnd I studied hard accord ing to mi- promise, that I might be worthy of it. I wns so proud of you. The girls used to wntch for you to drive up and they nctunlly raved over you. They all thought you were so hund somc." But Maj. Goddard was not following her with ntteutlon. "I have been wanting all this week to put a candid question to you, Blanche," he remarked, Irrelevantly, "t am n lit tle afraid you will not fully under stand my motive, but I do wnnt your opinion n woman enn judge another woman's heart better than n man can, even if he is her husband. I wnnt to Know, Blanche, If you think Jeanne cares for mo a little bit?" The girl could not command her sud denly roused emotions; she started and her long lashes fell before his eager, almost breathless stare. It was ns If the question had been a shot which reached thp very citadel of her most sucrcd convictions, "Gunrdian.you must not you ought not " she seemed unable to proceed, "I know 1 ought to be ashamed of myself for admitting that 1 have doubts, but since my loss nnd her strange reception of the news I can't help feeling us I do. Oh I lllanche, do you think she only married me for the fortune I had?" "I did not know her then," enld illauchc, evasholy, her face pale and rigid. "I am too young to read the the motives of women older than I am. I only know, if if" "If what, Blanche?" "If I hud lit en your wife I should have locd you more in misfortune than ever. Oh, I nm so sorry for yoiil It is breaking my heart." She raised her handkerchief to her eyes nnd began to cry softly. Goddnrd pushed her head bnck gently till she wns forced to look into his eyes. "Don't do that, little girl," he said, tenderly, "It breaks me all to pieces to see u woman's tears, 1 wish the old dnys could somehow come bnck; those days when I dreamed of a young trust ing wife who would love me for myself and draw me away from evil Inclina tions. You necr guessed it, little girl, but " he seemed to rtnllze that he was going too far, for he broke off short and after a moment's pause he began again: "Keer was a man a greater slave to a woman's whims than I nm to hers. As much ns I love honesty, honor, truth nnd upright living, I am afraid that woman could make me renounce it all If she wished. To me she is ns pow erful us opium to Its most ubject slave. I must do something, Blanche; these thoughts are maddening." He touched the bell. "Get out mj horse," he said to the servant. "I shall take u ride." He went out to t-hungc his dress mitl his wurd sat down bcf6re the fire. She heiiMil u greut sigh. "I wonder if she will desert him." she thought; "It would be just like her, now that she can no longer use Mm." CHATTIlIt II. Mnj. Goddard spent all the next day in the cit, busy over tome legal Snut ters connected with his recent losses. Ik- missed Ills ui.ii.it train mid was forced to take one an hour Inter. In consequence of this delay it was dnrk when he arrived home. The drawing room was lighted, and through tin window he saw lllanche and his pri vate secretary, Mr. Hubert Talley, nt the piano, but he did not cuter. All dny he had been worrying over his wife's recent moroseuess, und he did not want to lose a moment before seeing her. He fancied she must be In her own upnitmc lit, so he went iij stairs to her door. It wns closed. Ik rapped gently,' but received no re sponse fiom within. He rapped nguiu but with no better result; then he tried the latch and found the dooi locked. For n moment he stood mus tered by thoughts which both contra dieted and confirmed each other. Then he remembered that the door was the only outlet from the rootn to the main stairway, and ns there was no light to be seen through the key hole he half persuaded himself that Jeanne had dressed and gone down. Ho turned quickly Into his own apartment ncross the hall and turned on the electric light. Bis first thought was that he would change his dress before joining the others, but his Im patience to see his wife defeated this idea nnd he hurried downstairs. He looked into the library, a lnrge, cozy apartment opposite the drawing room. A coal Are was burning warm nnd red in the grnte, but the room wns empty. Just then the butler. Wilklns, opened the folding doors nnd n view of the electric-lighted dlning Jiall in its vast splendor of whlt cloth, sliver and cut-glass met Goit dard's roving eye. "Has Mrs. Goddard come down?" the major askttl, "I did not know she had returned, sir." "Returned! from where?" "From tlio city, sir. She went in this afternoon." "To the city! at wnnt time?" "She caught the 1:10 train;" it wns Blunt-lie's v.olce behind him, nnd It contained a note of startled concern. "She said she would go direct to your office and return with you." "I have not seen her; my God! what can have harrcnad to her?" iT i , IU .VWAS. xWU-vlv .1 ,1 .1 WW XW V' i.U.i Wv . .- " v.v ' 'y. RTANI1A Oil, CO, Blanche motioned the butler to re tire, nnd ho did so, discreetly closing the door. The mnjor wns deathly pale and his hands quivered as with palsy. Tor a moment ho could only stnre Into the sympathetic eyes of his ward, who like a shapely pillar of consolation stood before him. "Blanche, do you think think she has gone?" he asked. "I can't soy, dear, dear guardian. I hope not. Don't give up." He seemed to have a sudden Inspira tion. "Come Into my study," he said. She followed nnd stood in ttic dnrk as he fumbled with the electric light fixture. In n moment the little room was illuminated. He pointed to a big iron safe in the corner, and said, huskily; "She could not go without means. She saw me put $5,000 away yester day. She has always known the com bination." "Oh, she wouldn't dare to take your moneyl" exclaimed Blanche. "She knew I had a deposit In the bank," he said; "besides, what is mine Is hers. She knows that." With trembling fingers he turned the combination bolt. In n moment the heavy door wns opened. He drew out n strong box from one of the com partments in the safe and raised the lid. The money was gone. "That settles it!" Goddard said this with more calmness than Blanche had expected, but It was the calmness of utter despair. He closed the box almost with scrupulous exactness, then shut and locked the door of the safe. He went back Into the library nnd stood before the fire, his limp hands clasped in front of him. "Tell mo what to do, Blanche," he said, plaintively. "I cun't give her up. I simply cannot 1 I have been under bursting shells nnd whistling lend as thick as hail and not cared so much as that" (he snapped Mb fingers), "but I can't fnce life without her." A door opened cautiously. Wilklns put in his bald head, fringed with gray locks. "Shall I serve dinner?" he asked. "Yes, but I shall not v. nit," said his mnster. "I am going buck to the city." Just then there was a ring at the door. Goddard drew himself up nnd listened, n light of sudden expecta tion in his eyes. "Sign here," n boyish voice snld to the footman who had opened the door. "A telegram!" cried the mnjor, nnd ho went to the door nnd brought it bnck, tearing it open excitedly. "Detnlued in town," he read, tri iimphniitly. "I'erhups you ought to come to the I'aluee hotel to see me. Will return in the morning. Jeanne." "Tlinnk God!" he exclaimed, joy ously; then his eyes snatched n thought from the depths of IiIh ward's threat staring orbs which made him glum-p towards his study, und she taw the j'ji'l-s IV1' I" his fnce flick er us if u strrnf br?(.'e of suspicion hud blown upon It. "Ah," lie sighed, "but she intended to go, Blanche; she Intended to leave mel" He droppid his hand heavily on the old-fashioned silver bell on the table. "My overcoat, and the carriage, James," was his husky command. Blanche linked her tapering lingers over his arm. "Ilql not before you have eaten your llnrer. dear guardlnn," she pleaded. "When yon get to the city she win have dined and you may be the worse for t." He waited till James had left the room: then he said: "I could not cat n bite right now if my life depended on It." When she had seen him put on his coat and lenvc the room she ran to the window und watched the carriage drive away at the highest speed of the blooded horses. Then she went into the dining-room, bowing to Mr. Tal ley, who stood waiting for her. They took their plices at the long table, he on one side, she on the other. He was a handsome man of perhaps 'St, who wore no beard nnd hnd the strong features of u successful actor; his hair wns thick, moderately long and of a blackness which went well with his dark eyes. "Is the major coming In now?" he nsked her, deferentially. ".'o, he litis had" to go back to the, city, Mr. Talley; it was a telegram, I think." "Ah!" the young mini seemed un able to control his surprise, und then it became evident that ho found much in her tell-tale face, to coiiflrin Mb bud-den suspicion tlint all was not go Ing well with his employer. '" only wlshtd to nsk his advice about some correspondence hu direct ed mc to write." And the secretary's words contained a polite suggestion of apology for his Inquiry. The soup wns brought on by Sarah. "I bear .your pardon, miss, but you mwmmmmWM fiMi 1 mvflMwm . tm' .'Hft.Vll HLJ lU ' 1 !

"It doesn't mnttcr," nnswered Blanche. "Never mind nbout it." "But Br. Fleming told me to be sure to sec that you took It before each meal, miss." "Well, bring it to mc, Sarah; you ore a good doctor yourself." Blanche followed the girl Into the pantry, nnd when she had taken the medicine she said: "Mrs. Goddnrd was detained In town to-night. Mnj. Goddnrd has gone to meet her: she will return to-morrow. If the serv ants Inquire you may explain." Then she went back to the table nnd she nnd Tnlley ate their dinner silently. It wns as If he knew something had happened to which helind no right to allude. Continued How's This For a lllll o' Kavo loin is modest and novor believes In bragging nbout her good fortune, but n glunco Into her liumeditito certain ties of tlio futuro which tho good new year' and now century has nonr tho top of the bag for this town is surely astonishing: Tho Canyon Zinc Company is talk ing a now smoltor, u new rolling mill und u sulphuric uold works. Georgo li Nicholson Is doubling his smelter und talking rolling mill. Thej brick phints tiro running full time. Tho cement company promises a hard; run on full time for somo .'130 men for 1001. Tho city waterworks nnil electric lights tiro nearly done. Tlio Lnnyons, Robert or the boys, will suroly break out again with u big ftu'tory oloso to town. Mr. Xoblo Is working to establish si big works that will employ hundreds of men. Tlio ii-o plant Is moro than doubling Its capacity. Tlio now foundry is to opon up with somo twenty or moro employes. Tho Santa Fo intends to build a branch line from lola to Tillurpe. Dr. Wood will open his jag-curo sanitarium. A now court houso Is likely to bo well planned nnd assured. Tho usual custom of building a few hundred moro houses Is sure. Another hamlsomo ward school building is arranged for. And thcro arc so many things in tho wind, other factories, hotels, opern houses, and little things llko thnt that it makes ono dizzy to con templnto tho prospect. And If Katy don't wnnt in, tho old girl must bo daffy nnd ought to have a gunrdian appointed. Thero isn't a town in tho State that hits as much dead, ccrtnin, cock-sure good time ahead as lola.

Another Knllroail Possibility. Last Friday's Fort Scott Tribune prints tho following llttlo item which contains tho germ of a possible very largo item: "There is tnlk in railroad circles to tho effect that tho Memphis road has somo idea of a lino from Parson to lola. Tho origin of tho rumor is not known, but tlio rnllroad men arc roll ing It under their tongues." Tlio, Memphis is as oliglblo to mem bership in lola railroad circles as nny other road on earth. It 1-. one of tho north nnd south lines connecting with Knnsns City on tho north anil tho Gulf of Mexico on tho south, tho lust featuro making it a pood route for spolter and cement both of which aro duo to bo shipped In ever increasing quantities to south American ports. Much of tho spolter produced in Amer ica now goes to Europe and if the Memphis comes to lola she will tap at ono fell swoop tho production of over half tho output of tho country. If tho M.
