I sent up my card, and she obliged me to wait some time before she made her appearance, but when sne did she was Quite cordial. 1 took courage at this, because, you see, I hadn't had an in vltatlon. Besides, Alias Brlggs father is a lawyer, and a well to do lawyer, standing high In his profession, while I am foreman In a children's waist fac tory. Besides, Miss Drlggs la highly ojutatej and intellectual, while I don't make any pretense at that sort of thing. I know my business, and that's all I want to know. I can take hold of a sewing mnchlue and do more work on it in a given time than any trio of operators in mj deuartmeut Well, we hadn't been chattlne- but a few miuutes when UIss Brlggs looked absorl. .. lo something passing in . her mind. Presently she said: "Mr. Bea dle, I'm In peck of trouble. Next week we're to have the house full of guests, and when we came down thla summer we found the rats had got tuto our linen closet and made hav ofour sheets and pillowcases.

There was a machine at one end of It, and the rest of the room was taken np with white goods. It looked to me as If there were a thousand yards. I sat down at the machine and started It np. It went very llck. "Why, the machine's all richf I said. "Is It? Well, you tritht In It on ni of these pillowcases. She handed me the ton one on a hi pile, and in a few minutes I had fin ished It. She moved the oil no whr I could reach it and said: "I must run downatalrs for a little white. Mother's not well, and I have to go luto her room occasionally to see that she doesn't want for anything."- .

I nad often toasted of mv nrae- tkal knowledge of my business and the amount of work I can do In a given time, but I bad never calculated on anything like this. 1 thoneht I would he'ipwul natored about It and let Miss nriCS see by the time she cn.-ue back bow many plllowenaes I could turn out.

(Orlsinal.1 Formerly when. a railroad employee was killed at his work the officials left it to some of the dead man's friends to inform his family of their loss. Now an especial person la appointed to the position of announcer of calamity. The announcer Is usually selected for his tact and benevolent appearance. Ills duties are certainly not attractive. To go to the home of a woman, to hear her singing at her work, to see her children playing about the cabin, and tell that the husband aud father has be?n mashed between two cars Is about as hard a task as a sympathetic person can perform. Thomas Nolan was announcer afthat point on the V. It. and X. railroad where the shops are located and held the po sition so long and his duties became ao well known that his simple appear nnce at a workman's home was all the announcement needed. Indeed, he eould not walk through a street lined with cabins but each housewife would watch him with beating heart, fearing that be waa looking for her. ratrick CRourke, a machinist in the railway company's employ, had been in America fen years, and, having learned hfs trad and become so pro ficient aa to earn good -wages, be sent to Ireland for Mary Ma looey, his sweet heart lie bad loved Mary when she was. sixteen, a raw girl, and found her at twenty-six a full blown woumb. When be looked at her be felt that bis wait and work had beet wet! rewarded. All ' went well till children canle. and. with the croup and the measles and the constant attention they need ed even when well, Mary's nerves began to take on an edge and she lost her equanimity. When rat came home In the evening, tired with stsndlng over a machine all day and an occa sional digression In lifting some heavy weight he would And her cross and Irritable. He waa a good natnred chap, full of Irish humor, and would usually try to laugh his wife out of the com plaints she poured forth. But such work Is harder than handling machin ery, be It ever so heavy, and after a while rat began to get Irritable him self. At last there came a breach. The pair had quarreled most of one night, but in the morning Tat tried to make It up with his wife. "Ter havln' a bard time of It Mary. I know, with the constant rookiu and aewln' for the children and havln' to keep 'em from doln the thousand things they shouldn't do all day long till they're asleep at night but don't the wife of every workln'man who has children have to bear the same? And them as basu't children are awful en vious of them that has. Try and take more reasonable view of It Mary. Think -of bow well yer off to have a man to earn a livln' for you and the children and bow bad It would be If I were takln' away from you and you had to work for a livln' as well as lo k out for the children." She turned away from blin In a huff, and he was obliged to go to hl work with the breach still ojwn. Mary spent the morning brooding. She con . ildered that she'd married the wroug man, She recalled the hot words he had said to her during the night and either forgot the hotter words she had said to him or considered them Justly spoken. Toward noun she began t cool down. Tat never came home to dinner, and perhaps It was as well to day that lie did not. for she was not In a condition to avoid treating hint harshly. By evening she would be ready to at least drop the quarrel. though she never went through a pe .c eas of 'making up. Pat often wldie' bey could end tlielr misunderstanding as they ucd to. by lovers kisses. Inn the time fr that seemed past. S hen the hour for Tat to come home for the evening drew near Mary began to feel uncomfortable. Plie wished to g to him and throw hr-r arm around his neck and say that she had actel "horrid" and nil that, but somehow she couldn't Perhaps she thought that If rhe did It would only encourage Pat to tyrannlM" over her In future, r.ut she made a nb e dish of beefsteak ami onions for I'at'a supper, lie was very fond or the combination and by giving him the dish she could get the comfort of a confession without really making it Rhe was stsndlng over the anptter when something, she knew not what, prompted her to turn her head and look out through the otien door. The cabin stood alone, and she had an un obstructed view. Thero came Tom No Ian, the company's announcer, making straight ror bar caMn. A few minutes later there was a step oa the threshold. Mary did not hear It. for she lay on the floor In a swoon. It waa not Torn Nolan's step, for he had passeJ on without entering the mMn. It was Mary's husband, who entered and taw her lying, white and rigid, on the floor. He was terribly frightened. "Mary, darlln', what'a happen.! tc yer Whether It waa the sound of her hue band's voice or the time for revival bad come, Mary opened her eyes. "Oh, rat," she cried, "la It yon or your ghost?" Iti me, Mary. Why d'ye think It's tne ghost r It's only bit ago that Tom No'an was comln. and I thought he was g-.hr 19 tell me that you'd been kllle f."
