Tho only person in tho Thorvor
tons' house party who woro an .ex
pression which was entirely happy
and unconcerned was AVilmotf Ryton,
jibe, celebrated author, who was
reading a column and a half .of vio
lent abuse.ot his latest book, "Tho
New Morality," ?i a nonconfonnist
fd'oily. paper with very natural de
\ Winifred; Sturry, in a delicious
*wliite frocls, suddenly stopped be
hind lus chair. Between her beou
iiijul eyebrows there was an anxious
^ujeker. Without a word to Ryton
she began to blow a fluffy headed
weed earnestly.
"It will, it won't. It will, it won't.
It"?
i Eyton dropped his paper and
turned his chair around. "It will
-or won't what, please?" ho asked
curiously.
"H-u-s-sk!" she whispered. 'You
mustn't breathe a word yet or I
?hall forget where I am." Sho blew
?gain. "It will, it won't. It will"?
"It won't," said Ryton tantaiiz
ingly. 'Tm certain it won't."
Winifred Sturry deigned to take
no notice. "It won't"?
"It will. I'm certain it will."
She blew the last tiny piece of
fluff away. "It will 1" she cried, with
horror in her voice. "Oh, isn't that
rtoo dreadful for words? What will
poor Mr. Thorverton 6ay when I
btell him? And I did try so herd to
make it stop at 'it won't 1"' She
'Hung the weedlessVstock away with
a gesture of despair.
"What was tne reason of Your
rash expenditure of breath?" iia
?sked. .
For a moment the prettiest girl
in the world regarded him with as
;tonishment. "You don't mean to
say," she replied by asking another
^question, "that you don't know what
today is?"
"Strangely enough, I do, though.
TToday is Tuesday."
: '"It is St. Swithin's day."
"Oh, hol X seel" replied Ryton.
*" It will rain, it won't rain. It will
rain, it won't rain.' "
It will rainj" said Winifred sad
ly, "for forty days." m
"How do you io??w r"
"Why, because it came so when
X blew, of course."
"Do you believe that?" asked By
"top,
"Implicitly," she said briefly. ,
"And does Jack Thorverton, be
lieve it?" ,
ilm?mbvably," sbe\ replied curt
iy^
"Why?" he asked.
'*He believes it because he be
lieves in all those kinds of things."
"You mean-he believes that if he
goes under a ladder somebody will

"Yes."
"And if he sees a piebald horse
somebody's born?"
"Of course."
"And if he sees a black cat run
joing in front of him hell find the
winner of the Derby? And if ho
upsets .the salt he'll be utst the

"Oh, yes, and a hundred other
jthing?."
"Misa Sturry," he said, with an
earnestness too deadly to be plausi
ible, "I do beliove in some of these
ihings people call superetitioiis."
"Nor sho cried.
"Yes, I believe in blowing flufiy |
things."
"You dont?" she said incredu
lously.
'But only when they, are blown
ia the right way."
"Which is tho right way? Didn't
I do it in th? right way?"
''No/' said Byton. "To blow, it
.once is only, to go through the first
?tage of the dodge^-? mean rite.
(You^ought to blow it three times."
"But one.; (?ti't blow the same
"Quite so," replied'Byton gently.
"But what you can and ought to oo
vis t? blow throe heads; once. each.

A flush came to Winifred's cheek,
.and she looked up at Byton for a
fleeting second from under tho turn
-ed down brim of her panama,
s "I only said suppose/' said Ryton,
rwho 'iiad caught tho glance excited

hold them steady in a band that hi

"I said so!" Winifred laughed
delightedly, caught his eyo and pull
ed up abruptly.
''But it wouldn't do for me," ooo
tinued Byton solcninly, "to go to
you and aay: 1 know you loyo me,
darltng. When shall wo get mar

"Why wouldn't it-?" she aalced, in
tensely interested in ? stubby diaay'
tho gardener had missed betjeadtng1.
"Beoauee," said Byton, "tjaore ia
still 0110 more thing to blow before,
the question ie settled."
"Oh, blow it then. Blow it quick-? I
ly'"
Byton inwardly thanked all hia
otors that Jack and she wero equally
superstitious. "And this one, of
"ourse, settles tho question forever.
This one will tell me to go to you
joyfully or forever held my peace."
Winifred cxanur.ed it earefi/ly,
anxiously. "But that's such an
enormous thinrr. You'll be certain
to make zii uneven number of
blows."
"Ah," said Byton sadly, "but one
can't choose one's fluffy headed
thing. In this life one has to take
one's chance. 'She loves me, she
loves me not.' "
'<Not too fast, Mr. Byton."
Byton's heart, for all that he
wrote books, beat furiously. "She
loves me, she loves me not. She"?
Winifred couldn't stand the sus
pense. She leaned forward and gave
a great blow. "I love you! I mean
she loves you. Supposing that you
realty love me?her?^whoever it is/'
"But you blew, too," said Byton.
"Very likely I should have left
some unassisted.**
"Perhaps you wouT " said Wini
fred.
Byton dropped the stalk. "But I,
don't think so. After all, that's not j
the point. The point io whether it's !
going to rain today and for forty j
days, isn't it ?" j
Winifred laughed end dipped her j
head so that he should not see some- j
thing she knew to be in her eyes/^M
"Of course it is! But there aren't
any more in the garden."
*; ?'By Jove! Aren't there? Oh,
well, it doesn't matter. You may
fill Jack's heart with delight by as
suring him that St. Swithin is going
to be kind." Wim
"Very well," said Winifred.
"And you may further tell him, I]
think, that you have filled my heart
with delight by assuring me that St.
Winifred is. also going to be kind." )
"But I haven't!" she said hur*
riedly. "I havon't said a word." {
Byton caught her hand. "That .*
doesn't matter. Tho fluffy headed
thing said so, and that's good
enough for me." .
"Oh, don't ! Lord Thuxton is
looking. Er?er?as it has been set
tled that it isn't going to rain, shall

are never alike. The eyes are out

one eye is stronger than the other

than the left. Only one person in

THE CURE FOR WORRY.
Lrve Ono Day at a Time and Toko
S hoi* Views of Ufa.
Worry ? ono of tho worst curses
of? modem lifo. I i?y,o? modern life,
not booauso peop>, a thouennd yoars
ago. did not worry, beoauee na civi
liaaffcov? advoiroue saon become moru
highly strung, more sensitive and
base capable of oVtaohmoot. Thau
we often, say a ver^ .expressive
phrase that a ftSug "gota uporv our
nerves-.-"' Something. di#try*mng frap
pons to us, and wo oesmot shake it
oft. Somo ono treats ue rudely,
harshly oar unkindly, and-tho word or
dead rankiee in our minds. Wo think
it over fill it is magnified into a
grievous and intentional inault. Wo
take it to Ihm! with us, and no sooner
is tbo Mght put out than we begin
to recall it and turn over in our
minds all tho circumstances that oc
casioned it. Wo sleep feverishly,
haunted ail tho timo with tbo senso
of something disagreeable, .\Vc wake,
and tho accursed thing is still ran
kling in our minds. This is ono J
form of worry, which is very com
mon among people of sensitive
minds.
Another f crm of worry is the tend
ency to brood over past errors. The
business man or tho public man is
suddenly overwhelmed with the con
viction that he has made an awful
mess of things. The worst of all
calamities is the lack of energy to
grapple with calamity, and in most
cases it is worry thav break? down a
man's energy.
A third and perhaps more com
mon form of worry, is the gloomy
anticipation of future calamities.
There are some men who, however
happy they may be today, ?xe per?
petu?lly frightening themselves with
the possibilities of a disastrous to
morrow. They live in terror. When
actual sorrow comes upon us most
of us discover unexpected resources
of fortitude in ourselves. But noth
ing Bickens the heart so much as im
agined sorrow. Of this form of
worry we may well say, "It's wick
ear
I have no doubt thai most of my
readers know by experience what
some of these things mean. No
doubt , also many of them have many
real causes for anxious thought, ana
they will ask me how ? propose to
deal with it. One of the best ways
is to be content to live a day at a
time. .Sydney Smith counsels us
with rich wisdom to take short views
of life. Each day is on entity in it
self. It is rounded off by the gulf
of sleep; it has its own hours which
will never return; it stands separate,
with, its own opportunities and
pleasures. Make tnr most ol them.
Another good and simple rule is
never to take ou? griefs to bed with
os. "Easy to say, but how difficult
to do," will be replied. But it is
largely a matter of will and habit.
John Wesley once said that he
would as soon steel ae worry, for
each was equally a sin. To worry is

The Dispensary. I
When the dispensary was establish
ed the promise waa mado by its spou
Bora that ihe institution would return S
a profit of $1,000,000 to the State an
nually almost from the date of its es- 1
tablishmant. That was 12 years or ^
more ago, and the 81,000,000 a year
has not been realized. The report for
1904, exhibited with much pride, shows
a total profit?inoludiog that going to
the school fund and to tho counties
and towns-? of $775,376.95, whioh is ft
an increase of $136,893.60, over the '
earnings of the year before.
Tho disponsary is selling more whis- ,
key every year?though its advooatos |
at the Bame timo claim that it de- j
creates drunkenness?and at tho pr?s
ent rate of inorease it will be sovcral
yeara before the $1,000,000 profit j
stage is roaohed. In order that it may !
be attained the sales of whiskey must ,
bo mado proportionately greater. Tho
business of the dispensary now i
amounts to $3,374,786 43 a year-in j
eales, and it will not be beforo tho J
total runs up to the $5,000,000 mark |
thai the original promise of the dis
pensary oao be fulfilled.
Heralded as a "temperance meao- <
ure," even as "a step towards prohi
bition," tho dispensary is living up to
that prediction by soiling more than
$3,000,000 worth of whiskey each
year. Heralded as a great stroke of
finanoial genius, that was to pay the
State $1,000,000 annually from tho
start and doorcase taxoB, the dispen

"The love of beauty," he said, "is

beautiful things too often are regard

"This popular idea of the useful'u

a happening in a barber shop.
