To tell thee that I lo'e thee! , O dinna think,, my pretty pink But I can live without thee; I vow and swear, I dinna care -i ; How long ye look about ye." People who are happily married are wont to feel a secret pity for those who are single. . They are , quite sure that their lives ' must be lonely and valuable time is flitting by. if thees people but know . It, those who are single are happy as the day Is- long.- When they are heart; whole, they are care free. The lamp of hope is always burning brightly in their bosoms. Unlike , some disappointed married folks, their future holds prom ise of happiness yet to come. From the time they" rise in the morning un til they go to bed at night expectancy is theirs of meeting their mate; for who knows what a day ' may bring forth?, : '' ' . ? ;, When people are single, there is an impelling power which draws them hither and thither . among friends to dance - and make , merry. There they see and are seen. Single women have no spendthrift husbands to orry over and. single men no load of household bills to stagger under. ; They know nothing of matrimonial cares. There is nothing to put their tempers on edge- and to sour their dispositions. - ," When' a girl Is single her lover does everything in his power to please and win her. Af ter she's his wife, well-1- er that's another tsory. ; It's, the sin gle people who rule homes, dances and most- every form of amusement. 1 When a woman is single, she -can coquette with; a -dozen, beaux and. people, think it's "cute" of her. , If the young, ma tron smiles behind her fan at an old time friend, and enjoys a few. dances with him, " as she did in other days. the -tongues of , ; the- gossips are set swagging and, unless her husband is a man of sense and understands the situation, she may end a. suit for di vorce .upon her hands. , Single people in a household are the ones who have all the . partiality shown them.

The married sister has; to sew for her , and feels it her duty, to make her a present of her prettiest ornaments, and spend all Her pin money n , her. '. She advises with her when she has a tier with this beau or that one, giving .her the benefit of her own experience with would-be lovers. ' The old - folks are drawn , out of their,' shell to accompany her here and there whether they would or' no. Being single, they know she . must have her fling of pleasure. It's quite the same with the young man. Every thing Js done to make his home pleas ant. He won't be with them always. They never . know - what, day he will run across a dearie to love and wed.

Iead t Company (Continued.) - His other sister, Mrs. Chichester, wrote to him from time to time telling him one time of the birth of a boy, two years later of the advent of a girl. ... "..,.. , : . . ' ' - , Kingsnorth did not answer any of her letters. r! 1 , . ; In no way dismayed Mrs! Chiches ter continued to write periodically. She wrote bun when her son Alaric went to scliool and also when he went to college. Alaric seemed to absorb most of her interest He was evident ly her favorite child. She wrote more seldom of ; her. daughter, Ethel, and when she did happen to refer to her shev-dwelti (Principally on her beauty and her accomplishments. Five years before an envelope in deep mourning came to Kingsnorth, and on opening It he found a letter from his sister ac quainting him with the melancholy ! news that Mr. Chichester bad ended a life of usefulness at the English bar and had died, leaving the family quite comfortably oft " .. . - '" y; ' - m. ; . ." J Kingsnorth telegraphed his condo-! lences ' and left instructions . for. a suitable wreath to be sent to the fu-; neral. ; But he did not attend; it, nor did he at any tune express the slight est Wish to see his sister, nor did he encourage any suggestion on her part to visit him.' - ' ; -. r- When, he was stricken with an Ill ness from" which no hope of recovery was held-out to him he at once began to put his affairs , in order, and his lawyer; spent days with him drawing tip statements of his last 'wishes for the disposition, of his fortune. -. With death stretching out its hand to snatch him fconva life he bad, en Joyed so little his thoughts, colored with the fancies of a tired, sick brain, kept turning constantly to his dead sister Angela. ,; . . ' , From time to time down through the years he had a : softened, gentle re membrance Of her. When the news of her death eame, furious and viAent tng as he had been toward hSr, her passing softened it. Had he known in time he would have Insisted on her brial in the Kingsnorth vault. But Ehe had already been interred in New York before1 the hews of her .death reached him. - -' The one bitter hatred of Ms life had been against the man who had taken his sister in marriage and in so doing had killed all possibility of Kingsnorth succeeding .in his- political" and social aspirations. ' 1 He heard vaguely 'of a daughter. He took no interest in the news. , i' -' Now, . however, the remembrance of his treatment of-Angela burnt into him. - He especially, repented oC that merciless cable, fou have made your bed; lie in it."( It haunted him through the long hours of his slow and painful illness. . Had he helped her, she might have been alive today, and those bitter reflections that ate mto him night and day might have been replaced by gen-v tier ones and so make his end the more peaceful. ' -' He thought of Angela's child and wondered if . she were like his poor dead sister.- The wish to see the child 4 became an obsession with' him. One morning, after a restless, fever ish 'night, he sent for his lawyer and told him to at once institute inquiries find out if the child was still living and if so where. This his lawyer did. He located O'Connell in New York through 'a friend of his in the Irish party and found that the child was living with him in rather poor circumstances. He communicated the result of his inqui ries to Kingsnorth. That day a. letter was sent to O'Connell asking him to allow his child to , visit her dying un cle. O'Connell was to cable at Kings ' north's expense, and if he would con sent the money for the expenses of the journey would be cabled immedi ately. The girl was to start at once, as! Mr.' Kingsnorth had very little longer to live. When the letter had gone Kingsnorth drew a breath of relief. He longed to see the child. He would have to wait Impatiently for the reply. Perhaps the man whom he had hated all his life would refuse his request. ' If he did well, he. would make some provision in his will for her in -memory of his dead sister. The next day he altered his entire will and made Margaret O'Connell a special legacy. Ten days later a cable earner " ,- I consent to my daughter's visiting you. FRANK OWEN O'CONNELL ' "The lawyer cabled at once, making all arrangements through their bankers in New York for Miss O'Connell's jouiv ney. .-. - ; - ' That night Kingsnorth slept without being disturbed. He awoke refreshed in the morning. It was the first kindly action he had done f of many years. How much had he robbed himself of all his life if by doing so little he was repaid so much! , - ' ' O'Connell had a hard struggle with Pes' before she would consent to leave him. She met all his arguments with counter arguments. . Nothing would move her for hours. 11 By J. Hartley Manners "Why should I go to a man I have never seen and Tiate the name of?" , "He's your uncle, Peg." "It's a fine uncle he's been to me all me life. And it was- a grand way he threated me mother when she was starvin'." "He wants to do somethln' for ye now, Peg." ... i ' "I'll not go to him." "Now listen, dear; it's littl" I'll have to lave ye when I'm gone," pleaded O'Connell. v "I'll not listen to any talk at all about yer goin'. Yer a great, strong, healthy man that's what ye are. What are ye tlkin" about? . What's got into yer head about goinT" "The . time must come some dav, Peg." . "All right. We'll know how. to face it when it does. But we're not gbin' out all the way to meet it," said Peg resolutely. 'I ' , ' ' x CHAPTER X. Peg Away From Home. OR the next few days Peg was busy preparing herself for the t journey and buying little things for her.scanty equipment. Then the cable . came to the effect .' that a passage was reserved for her and mon ey ,was waiting at a banker's for her expenses. This Peg obstinately refus ed to touch. . She didn't want anything except what her father gave her. When the morning of her departure came poor Peg woke with a heavy heart. It was their first parting, and she was miserable. ' . O'Connell, on' the contrary, seemed full of life -and high spirits. He laughed at her and joked with her and. made a little bundle of - some things that would not go in her bag and that he had kept for her to the last minute. They were a rosary that had been bis mother's,, a prayer book Father CaMll gave him the day he was confirmed and lastly the little miniature of An gela. It wrung his heart to part with it,, but he wanted Peg to have it near her, especially., as she was going among, the relations of 'the -dead wo man. All through this O'Connell show ed not a trace of emotion before Peg. He kept telling, her there was nothing to., be sad about. It was all going to be for her good. . When the time came to go the strange pair made their way down to . the ship the tall, erect, splendid look ing man and the little red haired girl In her simple black suit and her little black hat, with red flowers to brlght enit i .' O'Connell went aboard with her, and an odd couple, they looked on the sa loon . deck, with Peg holding on to Michael, much to the amusement of the passengers, the visitors and stew ards: . Poor, stanch, loyal, honest, true lit tle Peg, going alone to what? Leav ing the one human being she cared for and worshiped her playmate, counsel or, friend and father all in one! - - O'Connell " never dropped his high spirits all the time they were together -on board the ship. He went aboard with a laugh, and when the bell rang for all visitors . to" go ashore he said goodby to Peg with a laugh, while poor Peg's heart felt like a stone in her breast. . She Btood sobbing - up against the rail of the saloon deck as the ship swung clear. ; She was looking for her father through the mists of tears that blinded her. Just as the boat slowly swept past the end of the-dock she saw him right , at the last post so that he could watch the boat uninterruptedly until it was out of sight He was crying himself " now crying like a child and as- the boat swung away he faHed up: "My lit tle Peg! Peg o my heart!" How she longed to get off the fcbip and go back to him! They stood waving to each other as long as they remained in sight While the ship plowed her way to ward England with little Peg on board the man whom she was crossing the Atlantic to meet died quietly one morn ing with "no one near him. The nurse found Mr. Kingsnorth smiling peacefully as though asleep. He had been dead several hours. Near him oh the table was a cable dispatch from New York: My daughter sailed on the Mauretanl. today at 10 o'clock. , FftAJSriC OWEN1 O'CONNELL. Mrs. Chichester, whom we last saw under . extremely distressing circum stances m Ireland, now enters promi nently into the story. She was lead ing a secluded and charming existence in an old and picturesque villa at Scar borough, in the north of England. Al though her husband bad been dead for several- years, she still clung to the outward symbols of mourning. It add ed a softness to the patrician line of her features and a touch of distinctSaa to her manner and poise. She had aa illustrious example of a lifelong sor row, and, being ever loyal, Mrs. Chl cHester retained the weeds of widow hood and the crape of afiaiction ever present. N tTo Be Continued.).
