The proverb in new light to read.

Earth'a secret of successes.

faint that Donaghue pressed his rough
tar still closer to the hrassy aperture
In the door and listened even more in
tently. His small eyes glistened in the
2ark hallway like the eyes of a cat (he
itad been nicknamed "The Cat" for this
rery peculiarity), but there -was no one
In the house to sec those glistening
eyes save the servants, fast asleep two
stories above, and the occupants of
this one room. He had watched that
bouse three preceding days and nights.
He knew that it -was occupied by a
young man and his wife evidently
newly married and beyond doubt rich.
He knew that the servants -were a
cook, two maids and a butler, and he
had almost worked out in his mind
Just where the pretty -wife placed her
Jewelry -when she went to bed In the
second floor room and just what means
the husband took to secure his proba
bly well filled purse.
When one is in the habit of making
social calls of the description that Don
aghue was making, it Is much better to
find husbands away from home, the
servants and occupants of 'the house
all asleep and the policeman on the
beat quite out of hearing.
The fact was Donaghue shrank from
notoriety. He preferred a quiet en
trance by the' window wholly unob
served If possible and, departing, left
sot his card nor anything else that was
of value and at the same time porta
ble. Indeed Donaghue was not the
tall, handsome fellow that most heroes
are. On thsSntrary, he was of medi
um height, spare, slouchy and had a
general appearance that was anything
but prepossessing. He was not a mem
ber of polite society.

Slowly and with infinite care he
opened the door and entered the room.
Four feet from him, as he stood al
most breathless, with his hand still
clasping the knob of the door, lay the
sleeping form of a woman. A flood of
moonlight from the window fell upon
her and melted the pink of her cheek,
the cream of her throat, the lace of the
nightdress and the white sheet that
wrapped her Into one semlgoldcn hue.
The undulation caused by her breath
ing made her look like a drooping lily
swayed by the gentlest of breezes.
"Great heavens!" thought Donaghue,
"what a beauty!" He could hear her
faintly mutter the name "Paul Paul"
at intervals, and he had a vague con
sciousness of a certain disrespect for
Paul, whoever he might be. A man
must be a brute to leave such a wom
an alone at night. He lingered but a
moment, though. Beauty was a thing
of little value to Donaghue. His own
Maggie was hardly cursed with the
fatal gift of beauty, and she was quite
as jealous as other wives. He stepped
softly and quickly to the dressing case
at the other end of the room. He pick
ed up a perfumed lace handkerchief
and threw it away impatiently, al
though in his more youthful days a
lace handkerchief he would have con
sidered a prize of no mean value. Be
low It he found what he wanted and
expected a locket and chain, a jewel
ed watch, a heavy bracelet, a pin and
what seemed to him a handful of
rings. He held them all up In the moon
light and noticed how they sparkled In
his trembling hand, and he smiled with

felt like adding a .stolen kiss to the

laughed aloud at the thought of such a
man as he kissing such a peerless
'beauty, as the woman who lay on the
bed before him. And he was just
about to depart as -peacefully as a so
cial caller when suddenly he heard the
slamming of the front door in the hall
"Her old man," said Donaghue, for
getting that he was probably a young
man, "and I'm caught. Caught bur

and listened. He heard footsteps In

whichever it was. Perhaps the man
had been out on business and would
stop there for a minute or two at his
desk. Perhaps there was, after all, a
chance for escape. He was cool and
careful. He dropped the jewels on
the bed. It would not do to be caught
with them about him. And he went

Even though the man had heard the
door squeak, he had not left the back
Donaghue tripped down the stairs
as softly as a cat. He bad been in a
tight 'fix before, and he was never
cleverer than when he knew that he
was In danger.
But luck was against him. There
was a fur rug at the foot of the stairs.
The floor beneath was polished. He
slipped and fell, and in spite of himself
he uttered an exclamation thatwas pro
fane enough to be unmistakably mas
culine. He heard the man rush from
the library, and how it all happened
he hardly knew, but some way or other
he managed to dash Into the dark par

jump out
He expected to fall at least eight or
ten feet He did not fall two. He had

pursuer would be there In a moment
He knew there would be a hue and cry.
Still, there was a chance.
True enough, the man came to the
window; but to the infinite surprise of
Donaghue, he made no outcry. 'He
heard the man utter a half articulate
"Heaven! has it come to this?" He
heard him walk a few steps and strike
a match. He saw the light of the gas

himself for a fool for leaving the

He heard a woman's step in the
room. The man at the window turned.
"How dare you look me In the face?"
he cried. "How dare you come to me
after this?"
Calmly the woman raised herself to
her feet and, looking at the man, said
In a forced whisper:
"What do you mean?"
"What do I mean? You know what
I mean," answered the man. "He has
been here at last perhaps not for the
first time. But I have found it out. I
have found you out"
Donaghue heard a little stifled moan
and the crash of a body as It fell oh the
floor. He began to gather a crude idea
of what it was all about. He bad band
some experiences with Maggie. He had
been jealous himself once. He raised
himself a little higher and peered over
the sill of the window.

The Farm Beat 'the Mortcracre.
The following story illustrates the
resources of a Nebraska farm: A
farmer got discouraged because he
didn't get rich the first year and, as
there was a mortgage of $700 on his
farm, was about ready to jump the
whole business, but determined to
make one more effort and sowed SO
acres in wheat It happened to be a
poor year for wheat and the stand
was not very good. Concluding that it
wasn't worth harvesting he pulled up
his stakes and moseyed back to Mis
souri, leaving the farm to fight the
mortgage all by itself. The farm was
equal to the occasion.
The'wheat ripened, fell down and de
posited the seed in the soil again. Next
spring the wheat began to grow lustily.
Some of the neighbors were honest
enough to write about it down to the
fugitive in Missouri, and he got inter
ested enough to come back and take a
look. Then he stopped and harvested
his voluntary crop. He sold It for
enough to pay off the mortgage and the
rest of his debts and bad a tidy little
surplus over, with which he moved his
family back and now declares there Is
no state like Nebraska. Lincoln (Neb.)
Take Care of Tour Ears.
Men and women have much to do to
keep straight A hundred nerves and
muscles are at work all through the
waking hours, giving warning or re
ceiving orders that the body, with its
many joints and natural instability,
shall preserve its equilibrium, shall not
stagger or double up in a hopeless
heap. These nerves and muscles are a
highly organized signal service, the
chief offices of which are in the semi
circular canals buried in the "stony"
bonework that protects the inner ear.
Were it not for these canals a human
being would find it difficult, often Im
possible, to maintain a proper balance
either while walking or standing still.
So long as these canals are in healthy
working order their reports are trust
worthy, but when any undue force has
shocked them or any agency, such as
sickness, has Interfered with their
workings their messages are incoher
ent and the brain, like the engineer of
a battleship in action, when the men
above are blinded and bewildered, has
nothing to do but let things go. Ber
