feminine jealousy were matter which did
not concern tue two eminently respecta

they also listened to many .spiteful things
suid about her. anil in each ease they
nrxiiled and prudently ibrclmre to utter a
word that could give offence to any one.

the euvy no freely u warded her.
It in a most singular proceeding for a

versation. Indeed, does .Miss ll.ilston ( 'career
ing' about the country';'" asked a quiet,
mild looking lady who had arrived itt Do
vereourt the previous day.
iYes, at least I don't know what else
you can call it," was the mhucw bat con
fused reply. "There is aonie Morr told
about her father having left lier here, and
about a married cousin coining to chape
tone her, but no father lias been here in
ruy time, or cousin either, and I and my
srtrls w ill have been hen: three weeks to
morrow." 'Then you think the lather and cousin
re myths'?" asked Mrs. Drake, quietly.
Mrs. I'rudiiolni shrugged her shoulders
expressively as she said.
"It doesn't matter niue.ii what I think;
you and Miss ltalston became friends at
Mice, I observed, and therefore you will
no doubt bo prejudiced in her favor; still,
even you, Mrs. Drake, must admit that it
is not the correct thing for an unmarried
sirl to go out in a boat w ith Captain Fer
ris and Mr. hmytlie, and only her little
brother to take care of lur. and without
asking any other lady In join the. party."
"Then! you arc in error, Mis. 1'rud
holin, lor she. urged me to go with her; but
1 am afraid of the u.vlcr'said Mrs. Drake.
IJut as you would not go, she could have
invited somebody else. I would have al
lowed eiiln rof my daughters to lime gone,
out of fchetr kindness to u poor motherless
trirl, or I would have even joined I he par
ly myself with both my daughters."
"Why didn't you volunteer to tin so"
asked the ni.w-cuiiier, with slightly elevat
ed eyebrows; ''surely the offer j-linuld have
come from you."
"No, it should riot," replied .Mrs. I'rud
holm, with great dignity; "only last week
tallowed my sympathy to get the better
or my judgment, and tuy daughters and I
were neglected most Miauieltilly. What
( he men can see in her i cannot imagine."
'No, nor can J," here chimed in Mrs.
Thorroh!, the jealous wife of a careless
husband, and molhi.r of three mismanaged
"Then you don't admire Miss Kalstotir''
kcd Mrs. Dia;e, sweetly.
"No; but my husband dot s," was the
spitetul reply ; "he even carrie. his admi

her, and though 1 do all in my power to
keep hi in ai.d the children from following
her about, I don't in tno least (succeed."
l ucre can't bo much harm in the girl,
if the children like her," remarked Airs.
Drake, quietly.
"1 uon't know about that," was Mr.
Thoi fold's dubious reply.
Tne conversation was here interrupted
by tue entrance of May K.iMoti herself.
She caiiw into tnc room with her
face llusucd, her eyes bri.'it, her wavy,
Huily brown hair hanging in pretty uisor

and sue swung in.r wide biiie-Iuutl hat hi

The accusation was so cruelly unjust;

Sue had played with the spoilt children,
but it had bceu to please lucm, not for

feeling for once an impulse of lioiu st in

"Awl most unwarranted," added Mrs.
Drake, likewise rising; "and I shall in.
form Mis Budd that I must take my cons,
in awuy from her house, if she is to re.
ceive such treatment from any ef its in
mates." And, so saying, she linked her arm in
that of poor Madcap May, and led her from
the room, followed by all the other ladies
except Mrs. Thorrold, who was left with
her three children screaming in concert
'I will go With Mi"S Kalston! I will go
in a canoe with Miss Kalston!"
Their mother tried to quiet theui, but
in vain; nn-l, sometime afterwards, her
husband erne Into the room, pale with
passion but terribly In earnest.

ones; "leave the room!"'
And, as they obeyed hiin, he turned to
his wife, and said coldly
Pack your things directly. We are or
dered out of the house because of your
confounded jealousy and bad temper. Uy
Jove! you'll have cause for jealousy one ol
these days! You will go into lodgings
now: you" are not Ct to live with etlier wo

erable woman was left alone.
It was in vain that she ran after him,
and wept and entreated, and offered to
apologize, itiKl vowed she would nev r lose
her temper in a like manner again.
Her husband was obdurate; and though
Wav Kalston and Miss Kudd would both
have forgiven her, he was determined not
to run the risk ol another scene ef the
t-o the ThorroM'n went into lodgings for
the rest of their stay; and though the
children always ran alter May whenever
they saw her", the made a pointed dis

lounging iu the pa tulc i iption rooms,
the tune slipped awuy a)nt:st imjiercep

places of interest iu the neighborhood, and
very much May enjoyed them; hut her
chief delight was to paddle about the
broad, eabii harbor in her canoe. Some,
limes she led a little fleet of canoes, and at
other times she was quite alone, without,
even her brother to accompany her.
Those who know Dovereourt will re.
member that it stands in the centre of an
extensive bay, bounded on the right by
Walton-oiNthe-Naze, and by l.anguard
I'oint on the left.
IJetween the latter and Dovereourt lie
the broad estuary of I he IMvers Orwell
and Stone, and I lie harbor and town of
At a point abvul midway between Do
vcrcourt and Harw ich there is a low head
land, from which ihere has been built out
into the sea a kind of breakwater or rather
groin for the protection of tbe 1 1 arbor of
Harwich. Standing at the end ot this
groin, one may have the water at one's left
hand as calm as a uiill-pond, while there
will be a perfect little tempest raging at
one's right, with only .some five or m. feet
of solid stene between the two.
From seaward comes the monotonous
boom! Loom! boom! of the bell-buoy on
the bar at the entrance of the harbor, and
its ominous clang reminds one incessantly
that, however placid and safe it may be in
the harbor, there j storm and danger
enough outside.
Sometimes this groin is under wafer,
and inaccessible; but generally it is possi.
ble to get out. lo the end of if , w here strong
seats have been lixed for the benefit ol
those w ho appreciate the luxury of having
water on thru- sidts of them, w ithout the
least risk of having their retreat cut off.
The current are dangerously strong oil
the point of the breakwater, and it is per
ilous for any small craft or canoe to tempt
to round it without going some distance
out to sea, though the most fragile craft
ever floated could He cluse lo the sloping
stonework ou the harbor or Harwich side
without the least danger.
It was a hot, hazy afternoon. The Spa
was filled with brightly dressed people,
w ho seemed t') have deserted the parade
and the sands fur such shade as they could
find here.
A hand is playing in the grounds, and
Madcap May sitting comfortably in hei
canoe, with her paddle at rest, listens
dreamily to tho witching strains, and
thinks how much sweeter the music sounds
here on the water than it does close to the
Her canoe is lying almost opposite the
Spa, and not a hun.ired yards from the
breakwater, and she is enjoying the pleas,
ant sensation derived from the slight rock,
iug of the canoe, and the note ot the dis
tant music, when a sorill piercing shriek
eclioes through the air and makes every
listener start with sudden alarm.
May looks about her anxiously to see
from whence the cry of terror comes.
Then she sees upon the end ;f the break
water a woman frantically waving her
arms, and screaming, while tvo terrified
children cling to her skills.
Their faces are turned in the direction
of Laugu ird Fort, and they arc evidently
trying lo call attention to some person 01
thing that had fallen into tue water.
So, ne of the people of the Spa grounds

A m ieiitihv, journal having recently said
that the manufacture of oil from peanu!
was destinod to draw on the crop to such an
extent that the mils would become a scarce
article of trade as a food nut in the near
future, a reporter asked a wholesale dealer
in peanuts for further 'information on the
subject :
"There isn't a pint uf peanuts made int.
oil in this country that I know of, and inner

holds out," lie said. "Jiefore they began
to make cotton-seed oil peanuts were used
largely in manufacturinir an oil that was
used in place of olive oil, and during the
war a great deal of the illuminating lubri
eutinf oil used in the south was made from
peanuts, the entire crop being used fur the
purpose. The making of peanut oil was n
very extensive industry in France for iiiiinv
years before the introduction of cotton seed
