?SATURDAY.MARCH 5, 1904.
A IMatter of Years By H. X~ HARRINER. ?topy right, 1SB. by Hm.ll/ Story Pab. Co?} ?IS sister, who disliked Kate Mar dock for reasons best known to ?elf. was continually saying spite fari little things about "girls who raised generations of young men," <wisi??b Is generally considered to be Batest as biting a thing as one young wamas can say about another. Bat this ma le no difference to poor ?nark, except to make him rather more attaMicrn. and to make him more fre gaootly dream of Kate's blue eyes and Barest face, arid to make him try with K,'' jf diligence, but poorer success, ?r target that she was 25 years of age ars?!le he was barely pant 20, and that she had been in society before he had gens Into long trousers Me ased to remember with s hot re? eaatxsent how she had In reality lit ?srsJHy trained him. How one ulght atta they were In the garden to gather, and the moon was soft and hright, he had given her s white rose, sad If ehe hadn't suggested the pretty araeeeh that should have gone with it, she same so clo?e to it it didn't make txrach difference. Then when he waa trying with all tasa awkwardness of an 18 year-old boy ta learn to dance. It was Kate who had ahown him the step when his sister arad the others had given him up as ? dress-destroying oaf. And when ether boys, who had paid more atti tisn to dancing school and less to Basking of s living, had opens? eaeered at the efforts of his spectacu tar feet. He was grateful to Kate for all this, trf ?ourse, but still, sweet as she had bees, there was a natural air of the esteran shout her which he resented, resllrcrng with ournlng ears how raw ay eomparison had been the material she hsd to work upon. These were the sort of things Dick aaonrht upon as be sat alone la his teem??one large and one small, over ?Burton's grocery etore. The family had left weeks before far Florida to spend the cold months, their household goods had be?sn stored Band eoly Dick was left Left because he was trying wuh might snd main to arBtsls a better position upon the staff ?at the Argus-Leader. There were no racks with guns in rae tapestries in Dick's apart Then?? was a pipe or so with of old magazines on the lit? table, s confused carpet of old ?papers on the floor, and oa a little coal stove a battered eof pot still sputtered. On a chair the dishes which represented a harried meal, sent In by a nearby res ?erasant. snd hurried because there ?aa nothing to linger over. Is the stove soft coal smoked dls ?tVHKltK DID TOU COME FROatr* anally or ?.puttered, according to the ?sanlity of the tiny lump it contained, eemsvimee sending out from a tarry Trsxhhle a thin, hissing jet of nauseous The bed was unmade and the sheets ?Jare yellowed from bad laundering. ' aMck. hunched in a deep chair, looked ahtrat at his surroundings with dis- j gast. It seemed a shame that a man at* 21? possessed of enough sense to hold a position worthy at corporation figures of $30 per week shonld live Btke a pig. He slammed the jarring stove door ran the smoke, took pu his hat, over- ! eaat and pipe, an ? with a last look , at the untidy room, went oui Any-i thing, he felt, was better than th:s? eaJBn unneeded work at the offic? Clall on Kate? Not much. Not when ' for two months he had tried to show her that he didn't really need another guardian. Not s guardian two or three years ?Oder at that. Re clattered down the uncarpeted aaatrs, and at the snowy sidewalk, tfsested with the glare, almost collided wits a young woman, apologizing Mindly for his clumsiness. -Why, Dick Wortham!" Dick pulled tUanself together and stared half un ?arstandlng into a face he knew, a sweet face with laughing bluo 03'es, ?railing on him over the furs, and be? t?r? he know it a little snugly gloved hand was In h!? and he was wringing It hard ?TCate Murdoch!" he almost shouted. ??Speaking of angels? Here, step ?ander the awning out of the snow and let me lenh ?it you." "Where did you come from?" de ttaanded the girl, noting with obsery_ ant eyes thai 1'?rk asedad a shave badly. "From upstairs,*' answered Dick, the light going out of his face. "It's an awful hole, Kate. Wish you could aee It." "Oh. let me r-ee It!" she es^lalroan. Impulsiv?, ly. Tie thought almo-t took her breath away Dick stared at her. He bit his Up hard. "See here. Kit B. ' he sad. "I don't mean to hurt you?you know, but?oh, pshaw?you krtra* what I mean. I cant do it. (chafa ..11." "Now, Dick." she said, coaxlngly. "Nobody arti] ever know. I'll just peef In. Didn't we ragraB I was to be youl fcnother?" "Not this tri;)," said Dick, with cheerfulne-,3 rising at the sense o! duty done, a.-i It will In men at times. "Mother or not, you're going home,1 young lady, and I'm going to take you Come on." ?. "I believe you're ashamed of yourj new home," railed the girl. "Anyway If you don't care to take me It dcm't make any difference." The furs wera given a suggestive shrug. Dick had swung beside her and they ware nark? ing along the white s dewalk. "Dick!" "Well/? anawered Diek. ?rieSy "It's awful. I know. but. Dick, I won't go In, truly I won't. Anyway, ? you're a newspaper man. and It's like an artist's studio." "Yes," said Dick, "and living room | and kitchen and hadrootra. See here, Kate." He stopped and pawed the hard snow. "Toa know j'i t as well as you're stani Bfj there I'd do any thing on earth for you. Yen know It. But that? Baa here- l think too much of you to let you (to it." The girl drew her wrap about her and silently they resumed their trudg? ing. Dick taking the rough snow and I the girl daintily treading the beaten path. Suddenly she stopped again. "Dick," she said, "if I get Walter to go with us will It be all right?" They had reacnod the house by thla time. Dick consider??! "Well." he sail, with a sigh. "I guess even a nne-year old brother will do. Get him and come along. But I'll tell you now, Kate, you'll never ? apeak to me again after you see that place." "Walter didn't want to go much. It was cold; besides, wonderful to re? late, he had his lessons to get. A quarter? Well, yes, he didn't mind going so very much." "Dick Wortham!" exclaimed the ? girl. "Aren't you ashamed?to bribe ' him?" j "Well." said Dick, spreading his cold hands before the Are, "you wanted to go. And ycu can't go unless he does." Even the chaperonage of Walter did not make D ck feel comfortable ss they ascended the bleak stair3. He felt like a sneak and said as much?In a whisper. "How dark It Is," said Kate. "I can slmost feel the bats and mice." Dick, looking apprehensively at the bottom of the stairway, mentally blessed the Janitor for forgetting to light the gas, and reso'ved to tip him. He did not breathe easy until the atout door had closed behind the three. "Oh. Dick!" said the girl. That waa all. Walter had discovered In the ' curtained alcove certain things of In? terest. "Oh, you poor, poor boy." she said, softly. "How badly you do need a mother." "I don't." said Dick, making a Barr? age effort to keep his eyes dry In the face of the exposure. "I need you, Kate?you. Am I a baby, that I need?" "Hush." said the girl, her eyes full ? of tears, po'nting to the figure of Wal ' ter revealed In the swaying of the curtain. "After that?" And In a few 1 minutes as they waited for s car Dick fancied he could s.ill feel the swift touch of the warm fur on his face, se ber head was pressed against hla ehoulder. He wanted to let loose the old college yell, and said so. ? "Do It," said Kate, radiant, "I feel that way. too.' ' "Say. that wr.? bully," commented I Walter, approvingly. The polVcmrtr? \tn iri?. ??rV**<>*,'ite ?Ban? ner started, then he shrugged his fat shoulders. "Kv'rybody's looney 'bout Crismas time." he commented, sagely. ? I.Itti?- Ad vie??.

Archllbald Hill, head of one of the New York East side settlements has wet with souie rather humorous a_ well as sad experiences in tbe coursa of his work among the poor. This lit? tle comedy, reported by the New York Times, took place while he was living in the overcrowded district populated by Russian Jews. It was a sad eyed, bushy-haired Rus? sian who broke in upon his musings one night. "My vife's sick," he said, looking stolidly at Mr. Hill, as though intending to hold him responsible foi the catastrophe.

Perhaps an hour afterward he re turnexl, however, looking more ha? rassed and worried than ever. "She von t lake it." he .-aid. sadly. "What was it?" asked Mr. Hill. "Vot der Herr Doctor gibe me. She say she no fool." "Tell her it's not fool i ah to take medicine. Tell her I take it always, and it makes me well. What did he give you?" he asked, by way of after? thought, "Dis," said the old man. handing him a crumpled bit of paper. "Have you had this prescription filled yet?" asked Mr. Hill. "Vilt, vilt? Vot you mean by vilt? I gibt her dis and she vond swallow It" Mr. Hill leaned back in his chair In despair. "Well, upon my word!" ha aald. "Of course she wouldn't ?wallow that paper. She's got more sense than you. Now, my good man, what yon want to do Is to take this paper back to the dispensary where you got It Aak the policeman there to show yon "SHE VONT TAKE IT the window where you get the medi? o?**?**? ?__r-?. _?a_>ef ralle Xar.

"Remem? ber," he said, as a parting warning, "aha must awallow It at one gulp." But hla mind was not at ease. It suddenly occurred to him that tbe med? icine might not come In pills or cap? sules, after all, in which case? Tha audden thought made the cold sweat come. Perhaps it was a liquid. That fool of a Russian would be likely to give her the whole prescription In one dose! With sudden haste he started down the street in the direction of the | old maa'a home. He knocked, and the old man himself I answered the door. There was a look of relief on his face as he recognized hla visitor. "Siaa ?raon't take dis neider." he said. "She Shy dot Hen* Doctor 1st crazy. She can't swallow all dat. Und I tell I mllit aaader,** af e-rai nary size for Mr. Hill's inspection. "Swallow!" shouted Mr. Hill. "What have you been trying to make her swal? low?" "Didn't you say dot she should swal? low at vone gulp, und I gibt her the rubber end first, ober she no swallow the glass part?** "And then." said Mr. Hill, after he had nnished telling the story, "one ex? pects things of these poor fellows. It's simply too bad, but what can one do?" Flab 1 aniiliiK In China.. The Chinese are great at rieh farm? ing, and one of their little dodges for hatching young fish is Ingenious.
