By A. S.
Ir is said that every mau hus a
blind spot in his eye. Sometimes
I think that I must have a blind
spot in my brain, and that the dis
asters and the sufferings of humanity
get beforo lt. Floods and earthquakes
and epidemics devastate the earth,
but they make little impression upon
me. I read the headlines in the news
papers, and when a man asks me for
a dollar for a "sufferer" he generally
gets it; but I lose no rest worrying
over his. sorrows.
It may have been an unconscious
seeking after au antidote for my en
tirely practical nature that attracted
me toward Julia Maitland. Julia was
beautiful, young and romantic, and
did cot seem to desire any corrective
for her disposition in the way of an
alliance with me. I asked her to
marry me once, and when she declined
I continued to visit at her home, with
the full approval of hw -father, and
with the full intention of asking her
She told me when she did so that she
respected me and liked me, but that
she could never, under any circum
stances, be happy with a man who
could appreciate nothing but the sor
did side of life. She said she had
noticed that when I looked at a pa jut
ing I always valued it, took into con
sideration thc reputation of the artist,
and then gave my opinion upon lt.
It was just 10 o'clock when I left her
house. I had time to go down to the
office and linish up some correspond

as it came peering over the transom,
) but I had a genuine start of surprise
as I opened the door with my key, and
found Ransom, my booukcepcr, ?dil
busy. He looked up ns\though he had
had been expecting me. \

Uf-past. Why dou't you take that?"
It seemed the best'possible thing to

lived, packed my satchel, and in mi
ller half hour was waiting In the
ation for my train. I took out some
ipers I had brought along with me,
id went over them while I waited.
After a provoking delay the train
died out and soon I ordered my
irtli made up and turned in for tho
it was 10 o'clock next day when I arose
id dressed myself. I didn't think to
ok out of the window until my toilet
as completed. I knew about where
e would bc at that hour. Already the
ke breeze ought to be rushing through
e car. and yet it seemed sultry.
I walked out in search of somebody
Scial and met the conductor.
"What train is this?" I asked bim,
He looked at mc in bewilderment.
"Ain't you one of 'em?"
"Oue of what? Isn'.t this the train
Clinton? Where are wc, any we. y ?"
The conductor looked at mc stu
"You didn't offer no ticket," he said
"No, I didn't. I showed thc porter
y pass-here it is-and told him to
II you about lt, or to take it and
ow it to you, and let me go to bcd."
'Oh, bimi" thc conductor said, pluck
g at his beard. "He can't read. He
pposed it was like all the rest
ey've all got 'em."
'All got what?" I fairly shouted at
tn. "What are you talking about?"
'Young man," said the slow fellow,
lemnly-I fouud out afterward that
had been chosen for this mission on
count of his calm nature-"you are
a special train, carrying nurses and
ctors to the fever towns. You are in
arantuicd country now, and how you
e going to get back I don't know."
'Oh, I'll get back," I said, cheerfully,
ust let nie off at the next town, and
1 find my way back."
'I wouldn't do anything rash, If I
ire you," he said.
[t was a very still little town where
stopped. There was only one other
ssenger for that place-a slender girl,
th a clever face that looked too
ung for a nurse's. I walked briskly
wu the empty platform, hot with
nshine, and exuding a strong smell
rosin from the new pine boards.
1?re was a black sign over oue of thc
?sed doors with "Telegraph Office"
white letters. Inside there was a
lick, click" of instruments, but thc
or was locked. A negro lad came

Bird and blossom have made them sweet

And then, turning to the boy, she asked
for thc key.
Ten minutes later he had returned
from tho house where the last operator
lay dead, willi thc big door key, and
we 'were lot luto the sweltering, dusty
little box of a room, which seemed
io me as if It still held traces of the
disease. I opened thc windows to
make thc girl comfortable, and sent
the boy out after some Ice waler and
some lemons. Then I remembered
"Say," I called to him, and I went
outside and asked him where I could
dwi thc nearest bar.
"Ovah thrill in th' tarella," pointing
to a long, low, unpainted house.
I ran across the street, followed
leisurely by the boy, and found my
way Into a bare room with a shelf
across it, and perhaps a dozen bottles.
A portly man, in soiled yellow linen,
was dozing in a chair. I awakened
"Jff.ve you any tonic?" I said.
"Who's got it now?" ho asked,.with a
"The fe va h. Yes, sah, I've got plen

room, and brought out two greenish
bottles of tonic.
"It's tho host medicine than is fin
it. Who's got it? The misse; .bring

this?" , ' /' " -
"No, I suppose not," I said; and then
[ asked after Ice, but I found that he
rond thc supply held hy the "misses,"
Hiere wasn't any In the town.
I took the bottles and went hack
Across the street, followed presently by
the boy with tho water.
"I can cool it," tho girl said, and she
sent the boy back after an earthen jar
of water. She wrapped it in wet cloths,
put the bottles in it, and set the whole
in the window.
"What's that message of yours?" she
nsked. I'found she had already intro

me oddly, and shook bauds with me
more heartily than usual. My friends
aro serious, hard headed fellows, a
good deal like myself, not much given
to effusive expression: but one of thom
actually called me a hero.
It is very seldom that ladies visit
my oflico, but as I went in I saw a
gleam of summery apparel. A mo

and Julia, actually Julia, was in my

"I know you didn't want anybody to

Julia, Julia who had scorned mc, ac
tually put ber tear-stained check
against my own, and then kissed me.
I turned to Itansoin. "Now tell me,"
said I, "what all this is about."
He put his pen between his teeth,
and took down a copy of a New York

statement In 1S90; he said: "Ever

kidneys, which radiated to thc shoul

disturbed condition, there was a dis

particularly aggravated, disappeared."
