Harriet Osgood LuuL .-,1 A Pair of Postman. TJV TfiTR M n.HART. (Copyright, 1001. by Duily Story Pub. Co.) It was a shock for Kennedy, ne kart nlmnst rnmnleted Sorting Out the letters to be delivered along his beat when he came on that one aduresseu to Nora Dillon. He recognized the riiimnanhv instantly. He had seen It many times. The letter had been written by Bertram Ryder. Ryder was .. f,iun..nnGtman. but "13 warmest and most intimate friend. Why, he had not known that . ., ;., ton with Nora the girl whom he had come to love witn a passion quite incommensurate wiu his pay and his prospects. Not that this latter fact would mat ter If they really loved each other. So far Kennedy had not dared to put his affection to the test of a declara tion. But he had been screwing his courage up to that point for weeks, and although he was far from beins a conceited fello- he had felt that he was being encouraged by the pretty daughter of the prosperous contractor on Elm avenue. If only she would come to the door for the mail today! He would watch her Would notice her acceptance of the envelope addressed by Ryder. The thought spurred him to activity. Ha hastened through with hi3 work as rapidly a3 possible, and went trudging off on his afternoon delivery, his well packed bag slung over his shoulder. The glare of early summer lay hot and yellow on the city streets. Crowd3 of well-dressed people were coming and going. The laughter of children mingled with the silver dripping of a fountain in a little green square. But Jim Kennedy could only think of one opening door, which framed a straight, young, girlish form in a gay little gown. That was one of the things which had first attracted him to Nora Dilion the fact that her pret ty, bright garments, pink and helio trope, and azure seemed somehow to suit well her swift, sunny smile and laughing blue eyes. Kennedy's bag was considerably lighter by the time he-turned into Elm street His heart wa3 beating hard when he reached the comfortable home of the Dillon3. He rang the bell, and stood waiting, the letter In his hand. He could hear the light, famil iar step he had learned to know and listen for coming along the hall with in, and suddenly the door bad swung back, and she was standing there, fair and radiant in her crisp white gown, her slim, erect young figure clearly cut as a cameo against the soft green gloom of the interior. "Good afternoon. Miss Nora!" He snatched off his cap, and stood look ing down upon her. "A letter tor you this time." "For me?" she laughed, and held out her hand. "I don't get many let ters." Jim did not offer to go at once. In stead he stood in the same attitude, his keen grey eyes striving to read her thoughts her every motion. He was conscious of a sharp tightening in his throat at sight of the blush that wav- "A Letter for You." ered Instantly over her soft cheeks at sight of the superscription. "Oh," she said in a low voice her tone surprised but comprehensive. "Oh." she put the missive hastily in her pocket. He fancied some embar assment lingered In her blue eyes or dinarily frank as a child's as she glanced up at him. "You look dreadfully warm!" she exclaimed. "It is- a hot day, isn't it? Won't you wait a moment until I bring you a glass of lemonade? Mam ma, and I were just drinking some." She vanished before he could refuse, and was quickly hack, a goblet con taining an ice-tinkling beverage in her hand. "Thank you," he said, and drank it as well as he could for that dreadful constriction in his throaL Then he had returned the glass, bowed, and was -''''ifMi Mm gone. , Ah, with what a heavy heart, with what leaden footsteps was the rest of his route covered that radiant summer day! How could he know that a disap pointed little face with puckered brows, was gazing after him with eyes grown suddenly misty and mystified. He had not acted like himself at all! What was the matter with him? She had thought she had fancied There was no mail for the Dillon household the next uay nor still the next. So Jim had no excuse for stop ping. But on the evening of the second day he found himself driven to Elm street. At least he could look at the house which held her. He might even muster up courage to ask her to go to the contemplated picnic at Garfield Park with him. He had been made "Married!" echoed Jim. welcome In their home. More than once Mrs. Dillon had permitted her daughter to go out with him. He had every right to Invite her. Just because Bertram Ryder had "written her a let ter, and that she had colored con fusedly at sight of it, was no reason why she would consider his attentions welcome. A soft, warm, dark, rainy night it was. Kennedy, about to cross over to the li: " ted home of the Dillons, suddenly stopped drew back into the shadow of a tree. .For the door opposite had opened, and two people were distinct ly revealed in the lighted vestibule. He recognized Nora. And that man witn spare form, and slightly stooping shoulders of course that was Bertram Ryder. He could hear the clear voice of the girl speaking with cordiality. "Don't you worry, Bert!" she was saying. "You can trust me to arrange affairs so that no one will suspect. What's that? I'm an angel? Oh, no, I'm not." There was a ripple of laughter. "Good-bye. Till Tuesday, then!" Jim Kennedy turned on his heel, and went home, sick at heart. It was the little maid of all work who opened the door to Jfm when next day duty forced him to ring the door bell of the Dillon domicile. And on the day following he found "himself waiting there rebellious and miserable, with another letter from Bertram Ryder in his hand. This time, although it was Nora who eagerly opened the door, and stood as if watt ing for him to speak, he only lifted his cap formally, handed her the let ter, and turned away without a word. And as he strode angrily oft, his smouldering jealousy was tanned to fresh flame by the sight of Bertram himself coming jauntily up the street. It was evident that he had received leave of atsence, for he was in his best civilian attire, and looked particularly sanguine and joyous. "Hallo, old fellow!" ne cried, and would have stopped Kennedy, but that individual jerked free from the friend ly hand laid on his arm, and strode on. Ryder loqked after him in dismay, but the next instant he had caught sight of Nora. He sprang up the steps. "There was no need to send that last letter, but I was afraid they would not let me off. The old man was very kind though, when I explained the situation. Heavens, Nora, what's the matter? You're white as a ghost." Nora's reply was distinctly feminine. She sank down, and burst into tears. By the time he had succeeded In wresting from the girl the story of her sorrow, he began to divine the reason of Jim Kennedy's sudden coolness to wards himself. "I'll fix that," he assured her. "Just as soon as this 'little affair is over before we even leave town, I'll fix that!" . He was as good as his word. That very evening he hunted np Jim Ken nedy .sitting "moody and dejected in his lodging house. "Look here, Jim," he said, "things have got into a snarl, and I'm here to untwist them. I was married this af ternoon " .- "Married," echoed Jim. He started to his feet as though stung. "Mar ried!" "Yes, to Cicely Barstow, as nice a girl as ever drew breath. We've been as good as engaged for a year, but her father objected to the wedding as she has some money in her own right he wanted to hold on to. My cousin, Nora Dillon, has helped us out by giv ing Cicely my letters which went un der cover to Nora at least the few last ones I had to send that way, as the old people were becoming sus picious. By the way, Nora is feeling pretty badly on account of your man ner to her lately. Suppose you go up to the house and explain eh?" Jim grabbed his friend's hand, and wrung it energetically. "I will right off. Congratulations, Bert! Good luck to you and my best wishes to Mrs. Ryder!" Then a beaming-faced young man hurriedly furbished up his toilet, and made his way to Elm street at a pace which would undoubtedly have won him first prize in a sprinting contest! VALUABLE KANSAS INDUSTRY. Bouy Csltnra Felentiacally Promoted Tbroogh Craps of Alfalfa. A Lawrence, Kan., correspondent of the Chicago Journal says the introduc tion of alfalfa has made Kansas richer by millions of do lars. Put the honey bee with alfalfa and Kan sas will be richer by mili.on3 more. This is the opinion of Prof. S. J. Hunter, president cf the entomological department of the Uni versity of Kansas. Any ' farmer whs raises alfalfa, or any one who lives in a region where alfalfa is cultivated, can keep bees at a small expense of capital and labor and a large profit. The bee ought to travel with the al falfa blossom, the professor says. The two are an ideal combination. Under Kansas conditions, alfalfa produces a quality and flow of honey unsurpasrel by any other plant. And the be3 makes ample return from the honey gathered from the alfalfa blossoms by Insuring the formation of seed where the blossom was. Experiments made by the entomological department have shown that the seed crop in alfalfa upon which the bees work is 66 per cent greater than the crop taken from alfalfa which was dependent for poll nation on other agents. ' At the meeting of the National Bee keepers' association at Omaha two years ago a test was made to deter mine the qualities of honey made from the principal honey producing plants of Kansas and Nebraska. Six samples were tested basswood.knotweed, whlla clover, sweet clover, melon b oom, and a sample of alfalfa honey sent by J. H. Wing of Syracuse, Kas. Of the six sample submitted the alfa'.fa honey was declared by a competent judge to be the one most nearly approaching the standard. There have been brought into this country eight varieties of bees, the brown, or German bee, the Italian, the Egyptian, the Cyprian, the Syrian, the Palestine, the Carno lian and Tunisian. From the experi ence of Kansas keepers it would ap pear that out of these eight the two varieties best suited to the state are the Carnolians and the Italians. The Carnolians are Austrian, are gen'.le, long-lived and extremely hardy. They are good comb-builder3, make beauti ful white-capped comb, and are goad, hard workers. The Italian bees were introduced from Italy by the United States department of agriculture. They are exceedingly gentle and will bear handling. They are persistent work ers, but need careful attention to keep them from feeding their young with the surplus stores of honey. Preparations are under way in various localities In Kansas to promote honey culture through the raiding of alfalfa and the Indications are that this in dustry will prove a most valuable source of wealth for the people of tha state. COSTLY THANKSGIVING. Am Mneh as Sla.OOO Paid for This Privilege. According to an article on costly in troductions, which appears in a Lon don weekly, 815,000 id the record sum paid for the privilege of shaking some body's hand. This was the price paid on one occasion for a handshake with the late Colonel North, and that bluff old financier was so enraged when he heard of the transaction that he cut off his friendship with the introducer then and there, and paid the money back to the man who had sought the introduction paid it out of his own pocket. But if all the tales one hears in the city are true and Colonel North had undertaken to reimburse all the sums which had been paid to obtain his handshakes, he would not have died so rich as he did. Twenty, thirty and forty pounds were sums frequently paid for introduction to the nitrate king by persons who expected him to help them make their fortunes. Needless to say, the money was practically thrown away in most cases. When E. T. Hooley was in the zenith of his me teoric success, there was hardly a pushing man of inventions or busi ness who did not seek the famous fin ancier, and the consequence was that Mr. Hooley had to draw a cordon around himself to keep wildcat schem ers away, or he would never have had time to do business. It has been hint ed that another famous financier, who was madly sought after by hundreds of people, who wanted him to finance their schemes, employed a friend to ac cept all bribes offered in this manner, which were not infrequently very con siderable. A millionaire money lender once offered one of his aristocratic clients the return of all the latter's promissory notes, amounting to nearly $20,000, if he would introduce him so cially to- three titled gentlemen, and he faithfully redeemed his promise. On another occasion the same million aire offered to knock $1,500 off a debt owed him by a client, on the latter's giving a dinner to some of the smarter of his friends and inviting to monej lender. The money lender was so pleased with, the success of the dinner that he increased the deduction to 82,000. New York Sun. Attorney Gonadal Reatrtanea. Mrs. George W.

On the Fourth Kansas dedicated the site for ;he monument to commemorate the Hauling down of the Spanish flag within the boundribs of the state and the substitution of the American flag :herefor. Governor W. E. Stanley was the orator of the occasion. In 1S06 Lieutenant Pike reached the capital of the Pawnee republic in his ixpedition through the newly-acquired Louisiana purchase, and seeing the Spanish flag floating he ordered it hauled down. He told the chiefs of the republic that they could not have two great fathers, and that they must select either the sovereignty of Spain or America. At the same time he threw out a hint that to refuse the sovereignty of America meant a fight. The chiefs accepted his suggestion and raised the American flag. The last legislature made an appro-, priation for a monument, and this was the occasion of the official acceptance by the state, from Mrs. Elizabeth John son, of the site of the Pawnee village. An immense crowd listened to Gover nor Stanley's speech of acceptance and dedication. The monument will be erected in time to be unveiled on September 29 ext, which is the anniversary of the raising of the flag by Lieutenant Zebu Ion Pike, 05 years ago. Twenty Tfaonnanil Idle. Pittsburg, Pa., July 2. A definite order fur a general strike of all union sheet steel workers was issued by Pres ident T. J. Shaffer, of the Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel and Tin Workers. There are over 20.000 men affected by this order, and every mill operated by the American Sheet Com pany where union men are employed all over the country will close indef initely or until such time as a settle ment of the matters in dispute has been reached. The officials of the American Sheet Steel Company refuse to discuss the troubles with the worltmen. The Amalgamated Association asked that non-union plants now operated by the combine be turned over to the union and be governed by the same rules as the union mills. The officials of the company declined to consider the proposition at alL The strike order in general will take from the con-union plants all union men working there, as well as from the union mills. The men explain their demand for the unionizing of all the mills of the combine by stating that last year the combine hod taken advan tage of the situation in its having the non-union mills operating first and leaving unorganized mills stand idle until the pressure of business forced them to start. It was resolved by the men at the time that such a chance should never occur again for the company. That it would be either all union mills or all con-union mills. To gain this point no change in the scale was asked, but a demand for unionizing all the mills was made definite. American Ueta Canadian Pos'tlon.
