Uu was to meet me here nt 8." Glancing nji nt n giant gilt clock, wliose hand moved with annoying slowness: "It In not qulto that yet," the reflected, Impatiently. De Nnrvlllc mulled down upon her. "May I nit here opposite you?'' he asked, drawing out the chair, "until he comes'" "Ortalnly," she replied, and ho took the chnlr. He observed her admiringly. . "You arc looking licnutirul to-night, Jessica," he began. "How dainty your white Is, nnd that touch of rose In your hat. Old-fimlileneil roses they are, aren't they? On a new-fashioned wom an. And your little fingers glittering with Just enough diamonds, not too many. .lust enough. There arc some who make' the mistake of wearing dia monds to the knuckles, but you, never! Dear me! The Inst tlnip' I saw you, Jessica, you were In tears." "Yes," "encouragingly. "You and ho had just separated. It wan very sad. I wri.i not surprised at your tears. One must weep a little for any husband, worthy or unworthy. It is In the nature of woman. Hut 1 said to myself, then, 'In n couple of weeks or three sho will bo over It. Hho will have entirely recovered.' And 1 must say that my prophecy has been ful filled oven sooner than 1 expected, Jes sica. How long tins It been? Three weeks?" After n moment employed In rapid mental calculation, "Three weeks! And hero you nrc, beaming ,inorc beautiful than I have ever seen you. and waiting for n friend." Half clotlng his eyes quizzically, he bent toward her. "It Is safe to say," ho whispered, "that this Is not a woman friend for whom you are so Impatiently wntchlng the hands of the clock with whom you arc to dine." A laugh commenced nt Jessica's eyes and finished at her lips. "Uurdly." sho replied. "I thought not," declared De Nnr vlllc "And why should it be? Why not go out at once with your friends? Must you make a recluso of 'yourself, while be lias all the enjoyment possi ble? He goes where he pleases. I am certain of that In fact, I have seen people who saw him dining here, tliere nnd everywhere, with his acquaint ances, man or woman, as It suits him." Here he paused for au iuterval, In order to observe the effect. It was ratiier disappointing than otherwise, Jessica sitting under fire, composed us a monument and quite as calm. He by and by continued: "As a matter of fact, Jessica, you and lie were never suited, you were never Intended for oue another. Home unkind fate ", "Pate, you calllt," related Jessica. Then, delicately defining the differ ence: ."When It Is unkind. It is fate. When it is kind. It is Providence. And you call It fnto?" "Some unkind fate," went on I)e Narvllle stolidly, "threw you together. You were too much alike In the first place. Both of Intensely nervous tem peraments, excitable, high-strung, It whs not In the nature of things that you could' live together longer than n year. Indeed, many predicted u sep aration at the end of six months, or, ut tuo very least, seven. But It has been k year, hasn't It?" "To-night," said Jessica, softly, "Is the anniversary of our wedding. De Narvllle laughed. "And here you tire," presently, "cele brating it by dining out with u friend! You ure nothing, Jessica, ff not up to date. You are more. You aro unique, unusual. All your friends say that. They say you aro qulto tight in making the thing final. You aro so superior to talin in every way. You huvo wasted a year of your ltfo on him." Jessica khrugged her shoulders ever so slightly. "And what do they say of him?" she question. "This. That lit) bus wasted u year of his life on tno!" De'Nurvllle frowned. "1 don't know! I am sure, what they say to him," he nttlrmcd, "but really he. was a brulo, JesslA. And why llvo with n brute as his wife- " "When tli cro arc ho many other brutes with whom ouu might simply dine," finished Jvoslcu, "Of course. With whom ono may pass a pleasant evening, then toy 'ta-tn.' That Is best: freedom. It In thcHOfClmliiH that gall. It Is sad, but true. I can't reason It out. Nobody can. But tho fact remains. Ouco u woman becomes tho property of n man she okch her charm. Thu kciiho of ownership appears to deaden his Inter est. Ho is not ho with nn'y other thing which ho appears to own. Ills horse, his dog, their vnlun Is only nuhiiiiccil by tho fact of possession, But tho woman! Oneo his wlfo, in niaiiy cases sho is no hotter than u slave!" Jessica, toying with her fork, marked hciroglyphlcs hero nml Micro on thu tablecloth. . "For centuries," sho ruminated, re signedly, "we were practically slaves uml sold ns such. 1'orhaps, after ail, Hint Is whet we were lorn to be." Again He Narvllle laughed.

F- J v c The Ill-fated ItusslHn mlno transport "Yenescl" was destroyed by oue of her own mlhes while laying traps for Japanese warships off Daluy. Thu "Yonesel" had specially constructed stem ports for depositing MaUiiorowskl mines. Tills ship's method of placing the mines was as follows: When the port was opened, n spar, shaped like a T girder, wiyi made to project from It. Along the narrower part "of tho spar ran n sliding hook to which the mine was attached and drawn out until it overhung the water. At the proper moment n cord was pulled which released the mine and let it fall Into the water. The mine then moored Itself automatically as follows (see small din gram): When the case M. containing the charge, hnd sunk to a certain depth, It received some support from the float b, and thereupon the anchor A began to unwind Itself from the drum I) until It found Its hold In the sea-floor. The mine would keep n uniform depth below the surface nnd would rise and fall with the tide. The moment n passing ship struck any of the studs t t t the mlno would explode. said he. "you enn look back over the situation and laugh. It has somo hu mor, for you. That Is better than tears. Ami sorrow Is, to it certnlu extent, beneficial. It sharpens the wits. Not that you have not always been quick witted. On tho contrary. So much more so than he, It was a pity, your friends said, to see you with him " "Yes, they said that to me," Inter rupted Jessica. "But what did they say to him?" She answered her own question. "The self-sntuo thing, turned round the other way." De Narvllle looked hard at her In the bright light of the glowing electrics. "Freedom becomes you, Jessica." ho declared. "I am almost ready to fall in lovo with you myself to-night." "Almost," repeated Jessica, ruefully. "Quite," asserted De Narvllle. "You look content. Joyous, radluut. 1 wish other friends of yours, who have seen you In tears, could gaze upon yon .now. Friends who bnve talked this affair of yours over nnd over " Jessica nodded assentlngly. "Yes," an id she, "my friends linve lost little time. They bare been noth ing If not Industrious." "It was you who started the ball roll lug," replied Do Narvllle, with a touch of reproach, "who tendered us our first Information." "True, but It was such n little ball to start with, and when it came, back, it was like a boy's snowball, the size of a man! We didn't know It for ours." Her expectant eyes rested on the face of the clock. Apparently she bad forgotten the existence of De Niirvllle. , "It is H," she murmured, "and time for him to come." They turned from the clock to the door. A light gleamed on them sud denly. The friend for whom she wait ed stood there. He advanced, nnd De Narvllle, ris ing, vacated his place at the table oppo site Jessica. "Mr. De Narvllle," said Jessica, "my husband." Then: "We are celebrating the anni versary of ourweddlna- day together," she explained with n smile. Zoe An derson Norrls, in the Valley Magazine. WANTED, CONSCIENTIOUSNESS.

It Is not fantastic to nver that n gift of Imagination would assist some people; to lie virtuous.
