ejaculations; Such was the plight of
Evcrhard Hamlyn at ten minutes to 1
o'clock on u 'certain Saturday afternoon.
He had been so absorbed In reading
the brief of an Important case that
was to be heard In the courts on Monday
that he had forgotten the emptiness
of his pocket. At 1 o'clock Alice
Valentine, an American girl with whom
he had formed a deep friendship, was
coming In to see what a, barrister's
chambers In the, Temple 'looked like.
Void she was alao to be taken out to
, The worst was that there were only
ten minutes In which to rectify the mistake.
He wrote out a check hurriedly,
and then remembered that time
would not permit him to go to tho bank
to cash It. His clerk was gone, and
the Temple was wrapped In Its usual
Saturday afternon peacefulncss.
, Without a hat he rushed over to Harcourt
building to see if his friend Anderson
was In his chambers. Ho could
rely upon lilm for a couple of pounds.
But the fates were against Hamlyn.
Anderson was out, and the doors were
Realizing that there was nothing for
him to do but to go to the bank lu? hurried
along Fleet street, meaning to hall
a hansom. liut as ho arrived there the
elpck struck one, and he knew that he
could not get to the bank and back In
twenty minutes. Alice would never
forgiven him it he was not at his rooms
to receive her.
Suddenly his eye was caught by the
three bras balls hanging over U shop
almost opposite. The sight suggested
a new idea to his mind, and he promptly
acted upon it. In another moment
he rushed across the road, and entering
the shop handed his eighty-guinea hunter
over the counter.
"How much?" said the clerk, eyeing
the hatless and breathless. llamlyn
somewhat suspiciously.
"Oh, i only wapted a flver," replied
Everhard, hurriedly.
"Have you got a card on you?" asked
the clerk, thinking he was oo thfe track
of a swell mobsman.
Unversed in the ways of pawnbro
kers, Hamlyn pulled out his case and
handed him a card.
"All right, sir," seeing his name and
address, and noticing it corresponded
with the initials on the watch. "I beg
your pardon, sir," he said, hastily, and
filled up a ticket and counted out live
pounds. "Have you a penny for the
ticket, please?"
Hamlyn impatiently threw down a
copper and fairly bolted out of the shop.
The people in Fleet street stared at hlrn
with amazement, and a. gutter arab
"with whom he collided, shouted, "Who
are yer shovin'?" as he crossed the
road. .
Now it happened that Alice Valentine
was just at that moment passing down
Fleet street, on her way to the Temple.
She had arrived somewhat earlier than
she had Intended, for she uphold the
traditions of womanhod with regard
to unpunctuality.
"It-would never do," she said to herself,
"to be quite punctual. He would
think I was too impatient."
So, timing herself to arrive at .the
Temple about 1:15 o'clock she was
strolling leisurely along when sho
caught sight of Hamlyn rushing wildly
out of a pawnbroker's shop. For a
moment the ludicrousness of the situation
struck her very forcibly, and sh-2
laughed softly to herself. But gradually
as she realized the full significance
of the action, her amusement gave
place to pity.
"Poor boy," she murmured, "I had
not the faintest Idea that he was hard
up. And to think that I have let him
spend such a lot of money Jn taking me
"I must get even with him In some
. There was a very tender spot In her
heart lor the tall, clever young barrister,
who had shown so plainly his preference
for her above all other women.
'Alice Valentine and her aunt, Miss SafXord,
were making n. tour of Europe,
and she had met Hamlyn first of all In
a hotel at Geneva. He had rendered
thera a number of civilities, and as he
happened to be doing the same round
of Switzerland as they, for a month he
was their almost dally companion. With
the frankness of American women,
Bho accepted his attentions graciously,
xind, finding him a pleasant attendant,
'enrolled him In their services without
further ado.
'Miss Safford generally accompanied ;
&llce'wherever she went, and showed
quite as much eagerness to "do" every
place aa thoroughly a? her niece. It
was qnly on rare occasions when the
elderly lady was obliged to admit that
she was "too tired for anything," that
Hamlyn had a chance of taking Miss
.vuiununc out alono.
The constant companionship, however,
had brought ahout the usual. result.
Hamlyn was not an Inflammable;
man. He had reached the mature ago
of thirty?not unsought after?without
having succumbed to feminine charms.
But there was something about the fair
American that fasclnatod him in spite i
of himself.
To-day, as she carne Into his room, a
perfect vision of freshness and lovell- ,
ness In the gloomy atmoflphere of the
Tempi?, Hamlyn was conscious of a I
certain shyness and reserve In her manlier
that ho had not noticed before.
"I don't belicvo I ought to come hero
by myself," she said, as she closid the I
door. "I wonder what Aunt Catherine
would say to it." '
"You are late," said Hamlyn. "I have i
been waiting Impatiently for you."
"Am I really?" replied Alice. "What i
Is the tlin*', then?"

felt her eyes upon'him, but answered
lightly: 1
"About twenty minutes pnst 1, I
fancy." ? ,
She was walking round the room,
glancing nt the ponderous looking books
and the papers tied with pink tape, getting,
as she expressed it, the "atmosphere"
of the place.
"Tt tTtnuf K-v iiiuf Ini'nlv tn wnrlf hnrr? "
she 8aiu. "Everything seems so old and
historic. I believe I .should only have to
sit here n few hours a day and I should
become a lawyer by breathing the air."
"Which reminds me,'.' said Hamlyn,
"that I liavt; been breathing air quite
long enough' und want lunch. Where
shall we go?"
Alice Valentino hesitated.
"Look here." che said at last "I want i
to say something to you. You have |
been taking me about such a lot. and I!
have done nothing for you. 1 feel real
mean. I want you to let me stand for a
lunch to-dny."
He shook his head laughingly. "You
forget," he said, "that you are my
guest; but I want you to say where you
would like to go."
Ho named a well-known restaurant
In Piccadilly, where she knew the;
prices were ruinous.
"No," she said, "don't let us go
there. Will you take me.to one of those
iiiitc uuiiuiiiitiii luuuua juu luiu iuu ui|
where you get a table d'hote lunch for
eighteen pence? I should love to go. It
would be a new experience."
"You look too smart," he replied,
glancing at, her admiringly, "but I tell
you what I will do. AVe will split the
difference and go to a kind of semifashionable
place where you shall see
all sorts and conditions of people and
hear a bnnd."
- Once or twice during lunch, when i
conversation dragged, Hamlyn noticed
again the thoughtful expression on her |
face. At last he took the matter up.
"Tell me," he said, "what you are
thinking of."
"I was thinking," she replied slowly,
"of how I could help some one who has
been very good to me."
"Not a difficult matter, surely?for
you." j
"It Is very difficult," she said, "under
the circumstances. The person I want to
help is poor and, very proud."
She was looking dowA at the tablecloth
and studiously avoiding his eyes.
"Can I be of any assistance?" ho said. J
"You?why " she laughed. "Yes,
perhaps you cat;. I will think about it
and let you.knew."

But there was no opporturtity to telf
her of his love. Immediately after
lunch they were obliged to hurry off to
meet Miss SafCord at a matinee, and
Hamlyn had no further chance of a
tete-a-tete with Alice, but he arranged
satisfactorily a meeting for Monday afternoon,
when lie determined to put
his fate to the test.
"You will not forget," he said In
parting, "to let me help you in the
matter you mentioned."
"No," she replied with a singular
look on her face. "I will not forget."
As Evcrard walked home he recalled
her tones, her face, the fair, Hushed
cheeks, sweet mouth, earnest brows,
and eyes of the softest tire. There was i
that in her look which satisfied him.
Ho was awakened from his reverie by j
an urchin Inquiring what o'clock it was.
For the sccond time that day he me- j
chanically tugged at his watch chain.
"Confound it!" he exclaimed as he realized
his loss. "I never knew that it
was such a nuisance to be without a
watch. I must get it out first thing on,
Monday morning."
The urchin grasped the situation and
ran away grinning.
On Sunday Ilamlyn again bethought
himself to the watch.
"I had better study tne ticket," he
said, "and see what I shall have to

"I must have loft it at my chambers,"
he declared at last. "It Is very

On Monday morning ho got up <?or;
Her than usual and drove down to the
Temple in a hansom. I-Iia clcrk had already
arrived. Hamlyn searched all
over the table carefully, then In all tho
drawers, but could n?jt And tho ticket.
Finally he summoned tho clork.
"Have you moved any papers?" ho
asked, rather irritably.
"No, sir. I haven't touched a thing."
"You haven't by any chance found a
ticket, I suppose?" pursued Hamlyn.
"No, sir. What kind of a ticket
have you lost?"
"It doesn't matter," ho replied Impatiently,
"It'Is of no Importance."
Putting nn his hat Ilamlyn hurried
Into Fleet street to the pawn Khop.
"I want to redeem the watch I left
here on Saturday,' ho announced.
"Where Ik your ticket, sir?" said the
"I have mislaid it," replied Hamlyn,
"but it Ih nil right; you remember me, I
expcct. The watch belongs to mo and I
want It now,"
"I am very Rorry, hIt, but you can't

Ilamlyn muttered an exclamation of

"In I hero no otbsr \vp.y?" nald Ham*
lyn, realizing the trouble und annoy
unco this would cause,

must uo boforti a maglntruto nnd slfttl

Returning to his chambers he put on
his robes, and was soon lost in contemplation
of the business In hand.
About an hour after his visit tp the
pawn shop, Alice Valentino drove up in
a cab to the same door. She had found
the pawn ticket lying on Hamlyn's table
on' the Saturday afternoon and had
appropriated It, meaning to redeerp the
watch and send it back to him as soon
as possible. She was rather nervous at
going into the shop, but she was not
the kind of a girl to allow her feelings
to stand In the way of a project she
wished to carry through; so, putting on
an air of unusual haughtiness, she entered
the little compartment and handed
in the ticket.
"1 want the watch, please," she said.
The pawnbroker's assistant looked
her up and down carefully. '1 When he
had, as It were, sized her completely,
he Inquired, dryly: "Where did vou iret
Allccl flared up Indignantly. "That Is
no business of yours; tell me wfjat I
have to pay and give me the watch."
"Not so fast,"' said the young man.
"You must answer one or two questions
He went away, and after a whispered
consultation returned with a graybearded
old man, who was polite, but
"I am sorry, madam, but I cannot allow
you to redeem this pledge until you
Inform me how this ticket cama Into
your possession."
"I found It," said Alice.
"Allow me to Inform you then,"' said
the pawnbroker, sternly; "that, you are
committing a very grave offense. By attempting
to obtain the watch you lay
yourself open to criminal proceedings."
"But," said Alice, "I am a friend of
the gentleman to whom the watch belongs."
"Come, come, that won't do at ail. A
gentleman who called hlms?lf Mr.
Hamlyn was here about an hour ago
endeavoring to get the watch himself."
"Mr. Hamlyn been here this morning!"
cried Alice. She had never expected
that he would be able to redeem
his watch so soon.
"Better send for a policeman," suggested
the assistant.
"Ho'.d your tongue," said his master.
Then, turning to Alice Valentine, he
said: "I do not wish to be hard upon
you, but 1 insist upon an explanation.
I will send over to the uddress on the
ticket, and if your story is true Mr.
Hamlyn will corroborate it. Harvey,
send the boy over to Queen's Bench.
"Walk in and ask Mr. Hamlyn to come
here Immediately."
"air. Hamlyn coming here," cried
Alice, unguardedly. "Oh, I must go at
*1 cannot allow it," said the pawnbroker.
"You must wait. If yop refuse
I have no option but to call a policeman."
If looks could kill, the pawnbroker
would have died on the spot, as Alice,
with the air of a tragedy queen, submitted
to the Indignity of being escorted
to the back parlor, while Harvey kept
A quarter of an hour liter Everanl
Hamlyn jumped out of a hansom and
hurried Into the shop. He was an impetuous
person, and he had not waited
to change his robes, but had come
straight away in wig and gown from
the law courts, lie was met in the
passage by Harvey, who had been
awaiting his arrival with keen Interest.
"There's a woman In here," he said,
pointing to the parlor, "who says she's
a friend of yours, and hn3 found your
pawn ticket, but I suspect "
"Out of the way," cried Hamlyn,
thrusting the officious young man to
one side and ru3hlng Into the room.
"Alice, by all that's wonderful," he
exclaimed, and seeing that her bosom
was heaving convuslvely, he put hi6
arm around her and Inquired tenderly
what had happened.
"They have been so rude and Insulting."
she sobbed.
Hamlyn waited for no further explanation,
but seizing Harvey by the throat
he shook him until the unfortunate
youth had not a breath In his body.
Then, turning to the elderly man, he
| cried sternly:
"What do you mean by Insulting this
The pawnbroker, discovering his mlstuke,
was nil apologies, but Hamjyn's
temper was still up.
Nothing could Justify rudeness to a
lady, he aald, and ho Insisted on an abject
apology from the crestfallen assistant.
Then ho took Alice back to his rooms

In the event of a modern naval battle
between?say?England and Russia, It
may be assumed that under favorable
conditions the roar of the heavy artillery
of to-day would be heard from 150
to 250 miles away. Dr. Charles Davison,
who Is studying the subject, finds
records showing that the tiring at the
battle of Camperdown, October 11, 1797,
was noticed more than 200 miles away;
at Sebastopol, 158 miles; at Malvern
Hill and Manassas, about 125 miles; and
at tha sinking of the Alabama, nine
mllos. In salutes nnd mock battles the
firing Is not so heavy, much lighter
powder charges being used. At the
naval reviews of Splthead In 18C7 and
1807, and at Sherbourg in BOO, It seems
that the sound of the guns rcached ,
placcs more than 100 miles distant, and
a somewhat doubtful report of 135 mll?'3
was made In 1S97 and of 13G miles In
1900. Of the travel of the sound of single
guns, little more stems to be known
than that the time-guns of Bombay

Western Men "Who Have Repudiated
Bryan nnd His Doctrines.
Philadelphia Press: The Chicago'
Tribune has compiled a list of some of
the prominent men who voted for Bry
an In 1S96, but cannot llnd it In th'.lr
hearts to repeat the action this time.
With the names are given the reasons
for their action.
The list does not Include the Gold
Democrats of 1S96, who voted for either
Palmer or Buckner or McKinley direct,
but Is that of converts to Republicanism.
It Includes two United States I
senators and two ex-United States senators,
two ex-members of Congress, two
ex-governors, one of them being Boyd,
of Nebraska, the only Democratic governor
Bryan's state ha3 ever had, anil
a long list of members of the legislature,
prominent lawyers and leading
business men. The reasons given for
their change of faith are either a con\'lctlon
that free silver haB been proved
to be a mistake, that expansion Is the
only patriotic policy, and that McKinley
has brought prosperity to the country.
Some of these converts ascribe
one of these reasons, some two and
seme all three.
The significant feature of the list Is
the fact that these conversions from
Cryanlsm to Republicanism are more
prominent hi states like Kansas, Ne
urasjca ann uoioraao man anywnere
jlse. In Kansas and Nebraska many
af the former Populists nud Democrats,
like Senator PefCcr of the first named
jtate and ex-Governor Boyd, of the
last named state, come out frankly and
icknowledge that the administration of
President McKinley has proved that the
16 to 1 free silver argument was a mls:ake,
and they are willing to acknowledge
their error. They also declare
that they have no contldbncc In antiimperialistic
arguments now being
made by Bryan, and regard expansion
is the only patriotic policy. Senator
Stewart, of Nevada, and ex-Senator
Mantle, of Montana, take the same
jround, while such a free sliver RepubIcan
as Secretary of State Bice, of
rolorado. makes the same admission
regarding what he now acknowledges
:o have been a mistake on the money
juestlon In 1896.
This showing in the western states
vhich four years ago cast their elucoral
votes for Bryan and Scwall Is the
jest evidence of the correctness of the
:laim of Chairman Payne, of the Be-*
lubllcan national comnilttce. that Bryin
will not get any of the former lie
