When the senior parfiKT is young,'
handsome anil unmarried and llie wo
man in the office of a uiot elegance
of face and form, subtly suggestive of
drawing rooms, it is apparent that
complications become possible.
Ogles by himself had a vague con
sciousness of the fact at the end of
Miss Wentworth's first year there.
It was not so much that, under the
pliarm of her personality," a Turkish
rug, not originally included in the plan
of office furnishings, had found ils way
into her room—that was a small mat
ter! But that he perceived a certain
incongruity in the fact that her sleu
5 der, well shod feet rested upon a pol
ished floor, while he and Stanton
!. walked on rugs, was more significant.
When incongruities of this sort attract
a business man's attention he should
Miss Wentwortli, to be sure, had au
atmosphere all her own, which seemed
to demand a- proper setting for her.
To this silent demand of her individ
uality Oglesby made a good many con
cessions from time to time, almost
without knowing that he did so. lie
had a whimsical theory that she was
like fine china and should be treated
with the greatest delicacy.
She herself never seemed to suspect
that there was anything unusual in the
attention that was paid to her com
fort. If a rug were put down in her
room, well, surely it was no more than
proper that there should be IU- rug
there. If Mr. Oglesby showed real
anxiety to know whether the chair that
she occupied was as comfortable a
one as could lie procured, Miss Went
vcorth supposed that it was but the
usual kindliness displayed by employ
ers for their employees.
Still the fact that Stanton had noticed
anything unusual in his behavior irri
tated him. lie remembered, with sharp
discomfort, a number of times when
he had worked hard—harder by far
than he CST had with any woman of
his own world—to win a smile from
5 her. lie even found relief in the
thought that with a tact rare in a girl
untrained to social life she had added
zest to his efforts by her calm, well
bred, but by no means encouraging
"An Oglesby and daft on the subject
of a stenographer!" he repeated to him
self with scorn as Stanton's remark
rankled in his mind. "I guess not!"
It was fortunate that lie should have
encountered Miss ViVntworth on the
street one day while this resentment
was still warm in his mind. At the of
fice, in spite of his resolutions, his man
ner was unchanged. Over and over
again he forgot that the cold, serene
young woman who looked at him very
much as if lie were a mere detail of the
ofllc-e furniture was simply his stenog
lint when he met her en the street
day a sudden remembrance of
Stanton's speech embarrassed him.
After all, the Ogl'sby pride whispered,
"Stanton was right." With this thought
in his mind he checked the smile of
(». greeting that rose to his lips and
bowed with elaborate and somewhat
"Intends to be just as courteous to
me as if I did not write his letters for
so much per month?" was the thought
that flashed wickedly through Miss
Wentworth's mind, ller acknowledg
ment of his greeting was reduced to a
flicker of the eyelids that came peril
ously near to being imperceptible.
The effect was by no means lost up
on Mr. Oglesby and produced in him a
queer mixture of triumph and indigna
"Jove," ran his thoughts apprecia
tively, "she has the air of a grande
Then a quick transition took place in
his view of the matter, and he experi
enced a thrill of righteous indignation
at her treatment. Ilad he not bowed
to her precisely as he would have done
to Miss Ten Kyek, with a mere trifling,
impalpable difference of expression,
which a person in her position could
scarcely be expected to detect?
Just what was going to happen in
the future can never be definitely
known, for at that moment the vision
of a tall, fair girl, whose eyes seemed
to look into his with quiet mockery,
terminated his train of thought. He
felt almost as guilty as it' the vision
had been Miss Wentwortli in the flesh,
and somehow the dignified displeasure
that he had meant to show when next
they encountered each other at the of
fice did not seem so possible as it had.
And, indeed, the "dignified displeas
ure'' was not at all discernible in the
reference that he afterward made to
that meeting, which showed plainly
his anxiety to efface any impression
of patronage that Miss Wentwortli
mL ht have absorbed—a reference that
wa,i receive*! v.'ith au ls:-i£Cer-
ent smile and a qui*k reference to busi
ness matters in hand that left him
feeling neatly and beautifully snubbed.
SubsequOhtly^ in the stenographer's
room. Miss Wentwortli took a letter
head from the drawer at her side with
the air if a person in deep thought.
Then, with a scornful smile playing
about h«r lips, she dropped the itaper
into the machine, gave the roller a
quick contemptuous turn acd mur
mured to herself:
^'A perfect cad!"
Fight the conviction as he would,
Oglesby became more and more con
vinced as the days went by that a
dire thing had happt&ied to him.
Why, otherwise, was he forever fur
tively watching her clear, pure outlines
with satistied delight'.'
It was not until the little room occu
pied by her contained every office con
venience that Oglesby was brought to
a consciousness of the fact that there
might be some personal motive in his
"I'm!, Seems to me, old man, that
you're daft on the subject of.our fair
assistant," observed his partner when
for the third time in as many months
he had suggested some improvement to
be made in the stenographer's equip
Oglesby answered him somewhat tart
ly and iu a manner meant to convey
that an Oglesby could under no cir
cumstances whatever become interest
ed in a woman not of his own class.
Vet his very soul winced at the
thought of an Oglesby in love with a
typewriter girl—and one, moreover,
who scarcely noticed him! With that
thought the queer, unreasonable es
ultation that he had experienced before
at being snubbed darted through him.
lie was proud of her—proud of her
as if she had been himself.
For two generations the Oglesbys had
married belles of their day. Indeed, to
be born an Oglesby—and a man—was
much the same thing as being born a
prince of the blood.
And now the head of the Oglesby
family was absolutely dependent upon
a girl of the people—a young woman
who earned her living by means of the
skill by which her long, white fingers
ticked oft' the letters that pertained to
the vast Oglesby interests.
Admitting that the impossible could
happen, he reflected, wouldn't it be
sweet? Glaring headlines in the daily
newspapers: "Oglesby Weds His Pret
ty Stenographer!" "Romance In a Wall
Street Office!" The thought was too
much. And he turned to the papers
that lay on his desk with his lips shut
in a cruel smile. She must go!
I "She is a queen, all right," he was
thinking as lie held a portentous docu
ment before his eyes in the delusion
that he was reading it. "She's a
queen, but we Oglesbys cannot marry
queens who have got lost from their
At that moment there was a tap at
tlie door, and in response to his mum
bled "Come in!" the lady of his
thoughts entered. In less time than it
takes to write it the Oglesby pride
slunk out of sight. After all she need
not go! The mere thought of some
round cheeked girl with a belligerent
pompadour filling her place made him
He rose to place a chair for her, dim
ly aware through the confusion of his
thoughts that she had expressed a wish
to speak to him upon a personal mat
ter. Then a shiver of intuition caused
him to look at her keenly.
"And I should like to get away as
soon as I can, Mr. Oglesby, without in
conveniencing the firm in any way,"
were the first words that Oglesby
heard clearly as he recovered from his
For a moment he did not speak. For
the first time in all his elegant, arro
gant life Hubert Oglesby felt forlorn,
bereft! In that moment the Oglesby
pride was forgotten.

waiting for her to speak, "I do not

She interrupted him by a little ges

Now that she was about to leave, the
cold reserve of her manner had dis

Something in the intense gaze that
he bent upon her caused her to leave
her sentence unfinished. Then slowly
the color burned in lier cheeks like
the fire in an opal, and Mr. Oglesby
was speaking, rapidly, eagerly and as
a mail rather than an Oglesby.
"Don't tell me that it is too late,"
he pleaded, "and that there is some
one else. 1 think I have loved you
from the first, but"—
He stopped in embarrassment. Miss
Wentwortli looked up at him with a
"The Oglesby pride?" she queried,
with gentle raillery.
It was a trying moment. Oglesby
turned hot and red with shame. The
Oglesby pride suddenly seemed to him
a contemptible thing. Then he looked
up and nodded with dull hopelessness.
She would never forgive such an ad
mission as that, he felt sure.
Miss Wentwortli laughed delightful

LACK OF APPETITE.
Watnre's Method of Telling? Tbnt
We Should ot Esit.
A man who retires at o'clock should
hi're his dinner at 5. As our business
methods prohibit this way of living,
the next choice for this class is a noon
day dinner, a light meal at night and
a more substantial breakfast. The I
man who eats a dinner w$i propor
tioned, served in courses, at t! or half
past will find a light breakfast all I
that is necessary. Most persons have
been brought up to think it necessary
to eat three good meals a day, which
few Americans can do for any length
of time. To prick up the stomach, to
bring the gastric secretions in that it
may receive the food in a welcome con
dition in the morning, an "appetizer"
in the shape of the juice of one or two
oranges is taken, or other acid fruits.
At dinner, condiments or large quan
tities of salt are eaten. The irritation
these create we call "appetite."
It must be understood that the lack
of appetite is nature's way of telling
us that we should not eat. Those who
insist on eating without appetite live
for awhile, but go about their daily
toil with languid movements and an
expression of stern duty, making every
one around them feel that life is a bur
den rather than a pleasure. This class
also go from place to place wishing
for new dishes, new ideas, new ways
of dressing the ordinary things tliej
are so tired of eating. Their sense of
taste has got into revolt, and to keep
the appetite at all alert new and
highly seasoned dishes must be con
stantly concocted. The oyster cocktail,
enough to ruin the finest stomach, is
seen on their tables. A natural appe
tite to them is but a remembrance of
childhood. Their names swell the list
of sufferers from dyspepsia, rheuma
tism, gout," Bright's disease, bilious
ness and "sick headache."—Woman's
The Wonderful Bridge That Spans a
Canyon In Utah,
Writing about the colossal bridges of
Utah, W. W. O.var says in the Century:
Across a canyon measuring 335 feet 7
Inches from wall to wall nature has
thrown a splendid arch of solid sand
stone sixty feet thick in the central
part and forty feet wide, leaving un
derneath it a clear opening 357 feet in
perpendicular height. The lateral walls
of the arch rise perpendicularly nearly
to the top of the bridge, when they
flare suddenly outward, giving the ef
fect. of an immense coping or cornice
overhanging the main structure fifteen
or twenty feet on each side and ex
tending with the greatest regularity
and symmetry tlie whole length of the
bridge. The majestic proportions of
this bridge may be partly realized by a
few comparisons. Thus its height is
more than twice and its span more
than three times as great as those of
the famous natural bridge of Virginia.
Its buttresses are
apart than those of the celebrated ma
sonry arch in the District of Columbia
known as Cabin John bridge, a few
miles from Washington city, which
has the greatest span of any masonry
bridge on this continent. This bridge
would overspan the capitol at Wash
ington and clear the top of the dome
by fifty-one feet. And if the loftiest
tree in the Calaveras grove of giant
sequoias in California stood in the bot
tom of the canyon its topmost bough
would lack thirty-two feet of reaching
the underside of the arch.
This bridge is of white or very light
sandstone, and, as in the case of the
Caroline, filaments of green and orange
tinted lichens run here and there over
the mighty buttresses and along the
sheltered crevices under the lofty cor
nice, giving warmth and color to the
Jovial on the Scufrold.
Sir Thomas .More, who was beheaded
in ir::r. was famous for his wit. "He
died," says tlie chronicler, "with au un
concern that in others would have ap
peared to be levity, but In him was
nature." He jested on the scaffold, and
he had been just as humorous during
his imprisonment. With a pathetic
touch which is never absent from the
true humorist he closed all his win
dows when they took his books from
him. "It is time to shut up shop," he
said, "when the wares are all gone."
