In a place of silent streets and empty lots, stand several large framze houses, with pick et fecnes, built bef ore the fire. Tall poplar and cottanwood trees hang 'ciouds of pale. glimmiierinig foliage over the wooden sidewalks. An occasional electric car with one or two pass'n" gera shrill. past under the rustling shade, and cows are sometimaea par turid on the frequent brown lots. In one of the houses of this place there lived two Amnerican gentlemen, different as the poles. Judge Amos Parker and Mr. Patui Havilland. Judge Parker, the house owner, an old set tler, was a plain man, the father of a large family. His wife had died when the children were little. Hlis sons were gone into business in distant towns, and his daughters, combining piety and flirta tion in a neighboring church, had sported actively through their respec tive courtship. till they were .all mar ried and gone, and their taliher warn left alone with Edna, the ser'asnt girl. and Nick, her brother, who had ac companied the family when they moved from Indiana forty years ago. Judge Parker was a ponderous, .easy going man, of tremendous legal Infor maation, with a long, white face and almost no nerves. He scarcely per ceived the loneliness of his remote house, and he did not miss his family too sensitively, as when they wenrs with him he had been only very slight ly acquainted with them. His taste was riot for men as Individ uals, but In bulk. He loved the public and public life, and he would have pre ferred almost any discomfort out of doors or In a hail to sitting in a parlor through an evening. The judge could not for an instant bear exclusive society. Indeed, the only moment when he experIenced un easiness was when he was forced Into the presence of a group of people se lected by a delicate social tact Instead of by the rude hand of chance or polit ical organization. If he had no lecture, no Republican rally or G. A. R. meet ing to attend, he would go out and sit on the fence of his grass plot to smoke and to talk to Nick or to any casual loafer. Paul Haviland, on the other hand. enjoyed almost no society hut that of his betrothed, Margaret Alden. and a literary friend, Richard Elliott. He read law In the law offce of Judge Parker's former law firm for three winters. It was during this time that he lived with the judge, to get far away, he said, from the grime and sor didness of the city, and in the even ings, while the judge was off with the public in the grime and sordidness, he sat In the old Parker house and wrote long introspective letters to Margaret Alden and composed verses called "Retrospect,"' "C'rcumstancee or "If," which gave its 'name to his volume of collected verse.

Richard Ulliott wrote a preface al most entirely of margins for the book, commenting favorably on the re straint. euggestivenes ancd perfect good breeding of Mr. Haviland's lines, and Paul ' ad great fun In his own way in writing them In the evenings. while the judge hod great fun in his own way In seconding motions and in troducing polItileans in long, heavy addreasea at political clubs. It was a curious circumstance of Paul's art that, while he himsef was of a very sensitive and Impressible nature, the attitude he chose to assume In his verse. one described by Richard Elliott in a magazine article on "Itav. Rand and Indifferentism." was exactly Judge Parker's attitude, and that gen tleman might have asked with far more sincerity: Bah! What's the odds? Or rose or rue What is the odds to mn.?

"It is true I am d~ailluaioned, but 1 feel it more dignified on the whole to keep our relations as they have al ways been. The world need not know. "This is not sincere, of course, but I am disturbed and in doubt." Paul Ilaviland. too, was disturbed and in doubt, and it was while he was in this mood that he went one morning to the law omeie and found, with as tonishment. that a blow had fallen en Judge Parker. He had been responsible for a broth er livtng in Wisconsin, a hank cashier, who, after a long probity, had ab sconded with the bank funds, leaving behind enough debts to ruin the judge. The men in the office said that If such a thing had to happen to some one it might as well happen to Judge Parker, as be never took anything hard. Paul felt the incident, an instance of the injustice of life, already symbol lsed to him in his own wrongs. Hie mentioned his friend's disaster to Mar garet in the evening, considering It an episode in keeping with the melan choly tone of their meeting, but they talked very little about it, being still too occupied with their own delicate, moral and temperamental problems. However, when Paul went home that night and saw tIA judge sitting on the front steps with his hat on the back of his head talking to NIck as he had be fore his house was disgraced and his fortunes ruined, he felt among his own troubles a sense of sympathy for a fel low sufferer. As he passed he touched the judge's coat sleeve lightly, as a subtle sign of regret, but his intention was evidently quite imperceptible to the Judge, for the next morning at breakfast he ob served ruminatively with an air of in tellgent, 'judicial Interest: "Well. Paui, d'you hear about Broth er Wili?" Paul stared at his plate and thea said delicately, "In iife we cannot al ways account for everything." "That's what the hank directors think," returned the judge jocosely. "Well, It's a queer thing-a mighty queer thing. I knew a man who did something like it here-and he resem bled Brother WVill too." This was the only allusion the judge ever made to the matter. Everything In the old Parker house remained as it was before Brother Will's lapse. The judge had never been extravagant. He was not obliged to change in any way his domestic or social customs, and It will he seen that his spirits and life had been less affected by his ruin than had Paul Haviland's by the remotest shadow of adverse criticism. Perhaps this sketch will be supposed too decided in its contrasts to he a thing of facts. On the other hand, it may he truthfully said that it is a very moderate presentation of the vivid variety of persons, perhaps in the world; certainly on the north side of Chicago. u~nicago. Plu n Na Egiand. In England the ordinary domestic pin had become in the fifteenth cen tury an article of suffcient importance to warrant legislative notice. An act of parliament passed in 1483 prohibit ed the importation of pins. As a ne cessity of the toilet pins were Intro duced into England in the latter part of the fifteenth century by Catherine Howard, queen of Hebry VIIIL; Who received them from France. Very good* pins of brass were made at this period, but a large portion of them were made of iron, which was blanched and bold for brass pins. In order to preeriet this Imposition upon the good people of England parliadient in 1543 passed an act providing that "no person shall put to sale any pins but such as shall be double heeded and have the heads soldered fast to the shanks of the pins, well smoothed, the shanks weil ihapen, the points well rounded. filed, canted and sharpened." England continued to depend upon France for Its supply of pins till the year 1626, when John Tilaby intro duced the manufacture Into Glouces tershire. In 1636 the manufacture was introduced into Bristol and Birming ham, the latter place ultimately be coming the great center of the Indus try. _ _ _ A Clatter of Sex.
