When Mart lb asked her If she liked to be a ftinrried woman, traveling with her husband, she smiled and said that it seemed "funny." For the moat part she was silent, pleased and interested, hut not quite her usual unconcerned self. After dinner they had a Jong, murmured talk ; she began to droop sleepily now, although even this long day had not paled her cheeks or visi bly tired ber. At ten " and overh foreheads air.

She was beside un bim write o tl ft ixl wife." across Ibo ? to ti ritttlln She had a .".0 , of Dad reading before the fire, of the little brown room upstairs, with Alix, Blender in her thin nightgown, yawning over her prayers, A rush of reluc tance- -of strangeness-ol' something like terror smote ber. She fought the homesickness down resolutely: every thing would seem brighter tomorrow, when the morning and the sunshine came again. There was a brown and red car pet In the oblong of tho room, and a brown bureau, and a wide Iron beti With a limp spread, and a peeling brown washstand with a pitcher and hnsln. Tho boy lighted a Hare of elec tric lights which made the chocolate and gold wallpaper look like one pat tern In the light and another in the shadow. A man laughed in thc ad joining room ; tho vole? seemed very near. Cherry bad never been In a hotel of this sort before. It seemed to ber cheap and horrible ; she did not want to stny in this room, and Martin, tip ping the boy and asking for ice-water, seemed somehow a part of this new strangeness and crudeness, she beean to be afraid that be would think she was Silly, presently, If she sahl her prayers ns usual. . ***?**? In the morning Martin hired a phae ton and they drove oui to tho mine. Cherry had had a good breakfast and was wearing a new gown : they slopped another phaeton on the long, pleasant drive and Martin said to the fat man in lt: "Mr. Bates, I want to make you ac quainted with my wife!" "Pleased to meet you, Mrs. Lloyd 1" said the fat man, pleasantly. Marlin told Cherry, when they passed him, that that was the superintendent of the mine, and seemed pleased ut tho encounter. Presently Marlin put his arm about her and the bay horse daw dled along at his own sweet will, while Martin's deep voice told his wife over and over again how adorable and heall' tiful she was and how he loved her. Cherry listened happily, and for a little while the old sense of pride and achievement came back-she vns mar ried ; she was wearing a plain gold ring! But after a few days thal feel ing vanished forever and Instead lt began to seem strange to her that she lind ever been anything else than Martin's wife. For several days she and Martin laughed Incessantly and praised each oilier incessantly, while they experi mented with cooking and ate delicious gypsy meals. / r Hy midwinter Cherry hail settled down to tho business of life, buying bacilli and hird und sugar and mutches Rt the store of the mine, cooking and cleaning) sweeping, and making beds. She still kissed Martin good-by overy morning and met him with an affec tionate rush ut the door when he came home, mid they played Five Hundred evening after evening lifter dinner, quarreling for points und laughing ut each other, while rain sluiced down on the porch. Hut sometimes she won dered hew lt lind nil conn? about, won dered what had become of the violent emotions that had picked her out of thu valley hume and established ber : her?', in this strange place, with tills man she laid never seen n year ugo. Of these emotions little was loft ! Sb.' still liked Martin, she tobi her- ; self, ami she still told him thal she j loved him. Hut she knew sh? did not , love Iiiiii, nial in such an association j as theirs Herc can he no liking. Her ! thoughts rarely rested on him; she ? was either thinking of Hie prunes (bat \ were soaking, the firewood that was I running low, the towels that a wet breeze wns blowing on the Hue; or she was far away, drifting In vague realms where feelings entirely strange to this bare little mining camp and this hungry, busy, commonplace man, held sway. The liest time that she quarreled with Martin she cried for an entire day, with tho old childish feeling that somehow her crying muttered, some how her abandonment would help to ! straighten uiTulrs. The cause nf the quarrel was a trille; her father had sent her a Christians check and she Immediately sent to a San Francisco shop for a clock that bad taken her fancy months before ii rill ' !.. pi* - .lid for lootic,.', althougl h. did : hq! know ? , ?van t.biindorstriK'k upon ? d'..--r,,.!. ipili ubi] o ) ' notui ;i,v di? i severin nays a shadow bung over their Intercourse, and when the clock came, ns Inrge as a bunjo, gilded and quaint, be broke her heart afresh by pretend ing not to admire lt. Hut on Christinas eve he was de Inyed at tho mine and Cherry, smitten suddenly with the bitterness of having their first Christmas spoiled In this way, sat up for him, huddled in her silk wrapper by the air-tight stove. She was awakened by feeling herself lowered tenderly into bed and raised warm anns to clasp his neck um) they kissed each other. Tho next day they laughed at the clock together, and after that peace reigned for several weeks. Hut it was Inevitable that another quarrel should come und then another; Cherry was young and Undisciplined, perhaps not more selllsh than other girls of her age, but self-centered and unreason able. She had to learn self-control and she tutted to control herself. She had to economize when poverty pos sessed nelHUT picturesqueness nor In terest. They were always several weeks behind In the payment of do mestic bills, and these recurring re minder? of money stringency mad dened ('berry. Sometimes she summed lt up, with angry tears, reminding him that she was still wearing her trous seau dresses, and had no maid, and never went anywhere- ! Hut she developed steadily. As she grew skilful In managing ber little house, she also grew In the art of managing her husband and herself. She became clever at avoiding causes of disagreement ; she listened, nodded, agreed, with u hoi lim/ heart, and had the satisfaction of having Martin's viewpoint veer the next day, or the nexl hour, lo meet her own secret conviction. Martin seemed satisfied, and ?ill their little world accepted her as a matter nf course. Hut under lt all cherry knew that something young j and Irresponsible und eon ll dent in her had bei n killed. She never llkinl to think of the valley, of the fogs and the Spokes of sunlight under the redwood aisles, of Allx mid the dogs und the dreamy evenings by the lire. And es pecially she did not like to think of that eighteenth birthday, and herself thrilling und ecstatic because the Strange young man from Mis. North's had slured nt her. In her sticky apron, with so new und disturbing a smile In his eyes. CHAPTER V. Be winter pissed at the mine and at the brown house under the shoul der of Tnmnlpnls. Allx still kept ber bedroom windows open, but the rain tore In, lind Anne protested ut the en suing stains on the pantry celling. Cherry's wedding, once satisfactori ly over, was a cause of great satisfac tion to ber sister and cousin.

In .Mme came tho blissful hour In ! which Anne, all blushes and smiles, could come to her uncle with a dilti- j ful message from the respectfully | adoring Justin.

"Justin wants to have a frank talk with you, uncle," Anne said, "and of course I'm not to go until you are sure you cnn spare tue and unless you feel that you cnn trust him utterly!" Anne's engagement cups were ' ranged on tho table where Cherry's had ?tooti, and where Cherry bod talked of a coffee-colored rajah silk Anne discussed the merits of a "smart hut handsome blue tallonaade."

While flying at about 1,000 feet over Hull spectators saw the ZR-2 seemingly huckle amidships and plunge downward over the cit> and into the Humber river. One theory of the cause of the disaster is that while the ship's rudders were being, tested Hie giant craft took a sharp turn, which caused her framework to buckle, and that the explosion of a gasoline tank completed the tragedy j of tho air. "flie actual cause, how ever, may never be known. A rumor had been afloat for some days that, the ZR-2 was structurally weak, but this was stoutly denied by all in au thority.

Tho Bhip was behaving in a magnificent manner, and there was not a sign of weakness anywhere. "We drove out over the sea again1 and as the fog continued bad we flew along the coast until Wednesday af ternoon, when we sighted land at Hull. We then flew across to How den, where it was decided to land at 6.30 p. m., so we sailed over Hull j again. We encircled Hull twice, and the speod trial was completed with out a hitch.
