CHAPTER IX (Continued).
DELIA, who devoted a certain
time every day, like other
Southern women, to sewing
or knitting for the soldiers,
was on the shady side-porch one morn
ing, sewlP"- at a tlannel shirt, when
Lymus happened to carry an empty ash
barrel around the house. She beckoned
to him, for the sltrht of the stout negro
had given her an Idea.
"Yas. missy." said Lymus, setting
down the barrel and removing bis cap.
"Do you remember, Lymus," she
asked, "the night I stopped at Old Cold
Harbor on my way to town?"
"Did you see a crippled soldier around
there that night?"
Lymus scratched his wool and flick
ered his eyelids as though making a
great effort to remember. At the same
time he was slyly watching his little
" 'Peahs like I ree'leck a one-legged
sojuh somewhahs," he ventured at last.
"He was young, a little over middle

taineer, a very striking, strong-looking
man. with sandy-red hair, and bngQt
eyes that seemed to pierce right through
"Since we've been in town, have you
ever noticed him on the stieets?"
Lymus pondered a while, his face
stolid. He was a per&on of more than
ordinary gravity of deportment, was
Lymus. very deliberate and oraiular In
conversation. It was well known, for
he took care to Impress It upon every
one, that he had long ago got " 'liglon."
He spent hours in prayer and solemn
musing; at colored Raptist meetings his
serious head, lislng amid the dusky
congregation, and his melodious, reso
nant voice telling of his "'Rperience."
were always conspicuous. Seldom, in
deed, did Lymus permit the broad
drollery of his race to break the sober
front which added so much to his dig
nity and standing But now, when he
looked up MdMong, there was a sly grin
under the wiry black beard that
fringed his mouth.
"Was "missy wantin' to see dat sojuh
pa'tie'lah?" he asked, evading a direct
"Oh, so much! He might be of the
" 'Bout Mawse Floyd?"
"Reckon If I was to hunt fo' him I
mout find him," said the negro sud
denly. "Do!" sh cried, delighted. "You can
go about the poorer quarters of the citv,
where I can't. And, Lymus, I'll give
j ou I'll give you those striped trousers
of my uncle's that you admired .o
"Thankee, missy." chuckled Lymun,
and, winking rapidly over some scheme
that had occurred to him. he carried the
Delia's promise of such a moderate
reward . as due. not to lack of desire to
speed Lymus' search, but to lack of
means. She had fled from her own
home almost destitute, and now poverty
was beginning to make Mble appear
ance in the Vaughan household.
Philip Vaughnn's income was derived
from long-term leases, of several dwell
ing houses in Richmond, and of a small
farm on Cravelly Run, south of Peters
burg. It could not, therefore, expand
v ith the rapid depreciation of the cur
rn'v; and now that the cost of every
ihlng had enormously Increased, the
di-'.niv re'-luse had much ado to make
both ends mee'.
No admission from the old gentleman
himself would ever have informed Delia
of the specter In the house. Mr.
Vaughan was a proud and sensitive
soul, full of impracticable sentiments,
and withal as helpless as a child in
monev matters. If the accumulating
Mils caused him any anxiety. It was re
vealed onlv in his disposition to retire
somewnat earlier than usual to his
room, where he would lock the world
out and scribble verse or Mndulg" n
rhapsodies on his violin The thought
of confessing his difficulty to his niece
he would have spurned as not only a
gross breach of hospitality, but an abne
gation of his manhood.
One morning, however, when Delia
had gone into the yard before breakfast
to gather a few dewy sprays of aro
matic fraxinella for the table, a grocer
came In at the gate and presented to
her a long, itemized bill for unpaid gro
ceries "My uncle Is not up yet." said she,
quite alarmed by the amount; "but I am
pure there is some mistake. He always
pays his household bills at the end of
"I only wish to thunder, miss," cried
the grocer, "that he'd keep It up. then!
That hill's for four weeks' provisions."
"Possibly he forgot. Uncle Philip is
verv absent-minded "
" 'Tain't mv fault if he forgot! I've
pent him three already. How's a trades
man to make a living these hard times
If people don't pav their honest debts'"
'I am sure." said Delia, provoked at
the man's belligerent tone, "that If he
owes this he will attend to-lt at once."
They happened to be standing, as she
spoke, under the oien windows of her
uncle's room, and a moment later Philip
Vaughan emerged upon the side-porch
looking. In the fresh morning light, un
wontedlv sallow and thin.
"Fetch that hill to me. sir," he said
Fternlv to the grocer, who hastened to

quite withered the irate grocer, and
caused him to become profuse of

ning his eve carelessly down the for
midable list of items. "Henceforth bs

and not to annoy the ladles of mv
house, sir You will he paid In full to
morrow. Good day, sir"
Upon the grocer's discomfited depart
ure, Delia expressed a hope that there
v miM be no difficulty In paying so large
"Not at all," replied her uncle, finely
waving his thin, white hand. "I have
been engrossed of late upon my heroic
ode which the lamentable death of
S'onewall Jackson inspired." There
upon, for her benefit, he began to de
claim: "He who 'midst th' embattled legions
Bcanning the serried ranks with eagle,
"I fear that my coming to live with
you," she faltered, "arid bringing my
two servants, has greatly Increased
"No lady's company," declared Philip
Vaughan with another stately gesture,
"no lady's company can ever be ex
pensive to a gentleman. Yours, my
dear, is a pricelessiboon! Let us go In
to breakfast. Henry," he called to his
body servant, who had appeared nt the
open window, "Is breakfast ready?"
So splendid was the old gentleman In
his dismissal of the subject that none
would have suspected that the matter
troubled him. At breakfast he would
dls-us3 nothing but poetry', and repeated
several stanzas of his ode in a rolling
sonorous voice, waving his fork. Yt
once he Interrupted himself with a
strange display of irritability toward
Henry when that sable functionary
dropped a saucer on the floor.
"How much longer." cried he, as

"Marse Phil." expostulated Henry,
amazed at the unusual outburst, "you
knocked it out o' my hands with that

"Be silent, you miserable wretch!" ex
claimed the master. ,
For the rest of the day he was In
visible, shut in the library, supposedly
engaged upon his ode, and Henry car
ried his meals to him.
Late that night, while Delia was lying
on her bed sleepless, thinking of her
brother, she heard the violin begin to
pour a wild, plaintive melody through
the dark halls. Just then the bell of a
neighboring steeple struck 2 o'clock,
and, although the girl was familiar with
her uncle's eccentricities, the lateness of
the hour disquieted her. Barefooted,
she creft softly as a mouse to tne h'ead
of the stairs and looked down. There
was no light below, but fiom the sounds
she could tell that the old man was

and ordered Henry to accompany him
downtown. A little before noon he cam-
home alone, and at -dinner the comely
young cook, Betsy, came in and served
the meal. , ,
"Why." exclaimed Delia on perceiving
the change of waiters, "where's Henr.

Such an expedient Indicated, of course,
that Philip Vaughan s resources were
desperatelv low. After pondering the
gloomy situation until evening, the girl
sallied Into her uncle's room, caugbt
him with his gray head bowed upon
his hands, and wrung from him a con
fession. "There's just one thing for us to do,
Uncle Philip," announced she when the
old gentleman. In considerable embar
rassment and trying to hide his tears,
had admitted the ignominious auction
ing off of his body-servant at Lumpkin's
slave-mart, "there's just one thing to
do We must pocket our piide, as so
many others have done, ana lake wag

"Lodgers In mv house-'" He gazed
blankly at her a moment, then stood up
and pointed to the row of family por
traits on the wall. "What would they
think if Philip Vaughan were to accept
money for dispensing his hospitality?
In this house, that has dined governors
of the State, aye, and a President of
the old Union, guests compelled to pay
for a night s shelter? Never! You pro
pose the impossible!"
In this unreasonable attitude he re
mained firm until Delia declared she
would go to Fome of her other relatives
to live. Then he yielded. The upshot
of It was that there soon appeared In the

the family, had hitherto known next to
nothing of household cares; she was one
of those bright, dainty creatures whom

Next door to Philip Vaughan's lived a
family of refugees from Philadelphia
named Jones. The father and his two
sons were department clerks, wholly de
pendent on their salaries, which were
hadly sufficient to support the family.
Accordingly, Mr Jones had planted a
diminutive kitchen-garden In his back
vard, where. In the long summer even

spaded and weeded. And as Delia often
did her sewing on her uncle's side

Here's Good Recipe for
Cleaning White Shoes
White sippers or shoes can be easily
cleaned with benzine or gasoline. Take
a soft cloth and dipping in the gasolene
(keeping away from the Are), rub over
the leather gently, us!ng a clean portion
of the cloth as soon as the other Is
soiled. This Is also good for canvas
shoes, and should you not succeed In
making them as clean as It is possible
to get them the first time they are gone
over, repeat once or even more times.
To avert the shrinking of leather shoes
after cleaning place them on shoetrees;
though they seldom shrink after the use
of gasolene or benzine. It Is always good
to take this precaution, for leather has
a tendency to shrink when dampened.

FOR LITTLE FOLK JUST BEFORE BEDTIME
The Sandman's Stories
F course, you all have heard of
of the three blind mice who
ran after the farmer's wife and
she cut off their tails.
Whether Stubby was a descendanl
from one of those unfortunate mice 1
do not know, but he did not have a tall,
and this caused him much unhapplness.
"If only I had a long tall," he would
say "I could run about without being
noticed, but the maids all know me, and
whenever anything Is eaten. If they see
me they will say at once. 'There Is that
stubby-tailed mouse again, he must be
caught and a trap Is set in every pos
sible place, making it very hard to get
enough to eat."
Twice as long as
HI3 LITTLE. BCDY
At last Stubby thought of a plan. One
night he discovered where there was a
whole cheese. He made a hole under It,
so that the watchful eyes of the maid
did not discover it. He then made a
visit to all of his friends who had es
pecially long tails, and told them If each
of them would give him a tiny piece off
the end of their tails he would show
them where there was a mountain of
cheese, and they could eat their fill.
They all consented, if he would prom
ise to take only a very small piece.
This Stubby gladly promised, and ran
for the doctor, and in less time than It
takes to tell It he had enough ends to
make two tails. -Stubby then told his
friends where to find the cheese, and oft
they scampered to the feast.
The doctor mouse began to piece out
Stubby's tall until he had a tail long
enough for any mouse, but Stubby was
"Use all the pieces," he said, "I have
been without a tall all my life and
Common Safety Pin
Serves Many Good Uses
Wo have heard of the many uss of
the hat and the hairpin in the hands
of woman and we now hear of the uses
of the safety pin.
If you have a waist from which the
buttons are removed whenever It Is
laundered, use a safety pin on which
to string them and you will not have
a wild' hunt for them when needed. If
you do not have a button box, use half
a dozen or more safety pins In tho
work basket on which to string dif
ferent sized buttons. For the traveler
the safety pin Is especially handy. It
will hold all the buttons needed.
A small one makes an excellent bod
kin for running ribbon through under
wear. It has also been known to button
shoes when a hairpin was not handy.
And several pins catching both sides of
the skirt together at each side of the
front, and then the pins hung on hooks,
does Just as good. If not better, service
than a s-klrt hanger.

The doctor told him he would find It
very inconvenient and tried to per
suade him to be satisfied with an ordi
nary length of tall. But Stubby was
obstinate and so all the ends were used
and Stubby walked away dragging a
tall behind him that was twice as Ions
as his Utile body. His friends all gazed
at him with silent admiration as he
passed by. and Stubby felt repaid Tor
having been so long without a tall.
The next night when Stubby was
running about the pantry the maid
came In with a light and when she
saw Stubby she called the butler.
Stubby had no fear, for he could es
cape before the butler appeared and
he ran Into a hole.
He quite forgot the length of his tall,
however, and a long end remained out
side, while Stubby waited quietly for the
maid and butler to leave the pantry.
The butler looked about and saw the
end of .the tall. He pulled poor Stubby
squeaking from his hole and took him
to the door, where the cat .vas waiting
for her supper.
; f THE CflTWflS WflTTIKG
Perhaps Stubby might have lived to a
good old age, if he had been content to
have a tall ot ordinary length and not
wished to outdo the other mice.
Stubby's story should teach that ex
tremes in anything should b avoided
and that those who conduct themselves
In a modest manner are more to be en
vied and admired than the ones who at
