Of courso tho governor Is fully prepared to act on many bills, while others re quire critical examination. Tho legis lature practically closed Its business on Saturday, but, us is tho custom, a few members of each house remained awaiting tho action of the governor, Their sessions aro necessarily all "re cess" sessions, to uvold tho necessity of calling tho rolls. Thus tho latest bills returned to tho houses In which they originated arc lawfully received from the governor and journal entries pel fectcd, with but half a dozen or less of tho members present.

LOVE IS DEST Dy Flortnct HedjKJtuon CHAPTER XII. It wns springtime at Easthlll-on-Seu, and things woro Bottling down again. Mrs, Dynevor, with her son and daughter, still lived at tho Up lands, but with no fear now of the mortgage foreclosing. It was gener ally belloved and specially so by liar old that tho Intorest was paid to tho young mistress of tho Manor; really It went Into the loenl bunk account of "Kitty Dyncvor," for Lillian know Unit Allek Cravon's wooing would soon end successfully, und wuntod Kitty to have a nlco little sum In hand for her trousenii, Woodbinds was n school no longer, Mrs. Tannor llvod at tho Manor as chaperon to Miss Dynovor; and Lil llun, thoughtful in nil things, bad In sisted on purchasing un annuity of two hundred a year for her friend, so that, as she put It, if she did not live long Mrs. Tunner nood not open a school again, Mrs. Dynevor and Kitty woro ofton at ths Manor, and loved Lillian even better than they had lovod Miss hen don; but Harold never went there, and when he met his cousin nt Up luiids treutod her with a cold roservo that almost broko her heart. "Your brother was kinder to me when I was a poor little governess," she suld to Kitty. And that damsel, then on the eve of her wedding, lec tured Harold pretty sharply on his niannor to her favorite, "You don't understand," ho said rnldlv. "Lllllun Is rich, we uro poor, and that makes a gulf between us." . . . i i . .1 "But It need not," Kitty porsisicu. Mlllan and the twins wero hor bridesmaids when tho Juno day came that made her Mis. Alic.k Craven; und somehow, when tho happy pair had driven off, Harold found hlmsolf alone In tho garden with tho chief brtdcsmuld. "It went off very well," he rcmnrKeu, "I nover saw Kitty look bettor." "No. I think they will be very happy," she said qulotly. "I suppose yours will be the next wedding In the family, Lillian? It Is high time you chose a prince consort for the Manor." "Only that I om not going to ao anything of the sort," she answered. "I thought I heard Mrs. Tanner say something about chungea at the Ma nor." "Yes: but thev need not mean mat rimony." She hesitated. "You were so kind to me in the old days, wnen first I came to kia'sthlll, that I would lllia tn toll vnu mv clans. I am quite sure I am not fit to be a great lady, and I should like to feel that my life was of use to some one, so I am going to London to be trained us a hospital nurBe." Lillian!" "And as my life will be spent among sick folk, you see, I shall never want the Manor; and you are the last of the Dynevors you would make me vrv hannv. Harold. It VOU would gO back to the old homo which was to have been yours, which would nave been yours if I hud never beon born." "Lillian, you know It is impossible!" "I know you have Bhunncd the Ma nor lutoly; but If it was your own?" "I havo only shunned It because something It contained was growing nil too dear to me. Lillian, did you over guess my secret that I loved you mini n mv hpart. and but for the gulf between our fortunes I should have naked you to bo my who: "And I thought you hated mo be cause I was my mother's daughter." "I love you dearly; I have loyed you ever bIiico tho old days, when I thought you woro only a pennllcBS llt tlo toucher." "I wish I had been," she answered wistfully. "I don't think money has brought mo much happiness. But Harold, when I go to the hospital you must take the Manor; the dear old place can't be left desolate." And thoTi Harold Dynevor's lovo conquered his prido. He took Lillian In his arms, and whispered that he would only take the gift with tho giver. And now Dynovor Manor Is a happy homo, and children who bear tho old namo make merry In the nursery Mrs. Craven had been afraid to ubo. The End. lesson In Astronomy It was tho third week of our trip across the plains. Wo woro now Just seventy-five miles from Fremont, and expected to make It very shortly; but on rising I wns disgusted to find that one of the horses we hud only two was dead lame. He bad cast hlmsidf In the night. I was rubbing the strain ed tondons when the professor oame and stood beside me. "How long before he will be ready for work ngaln?" "I don't know," I Bald shortly. "Hand me that oil." "What Is a near estlmato?" he In quired, with a touch of mild Irritation. "Surely tn these days of sclonttflo ex actitude so slight a mntter as the length of a horse's lameness may bo computed with reasonable accuracy." "I Just wish you'd try it, then," I said, sulkily. "Ho may be ready to morrowwe may have to wait two weeks unless you want to ride the mare In. I don't mind walking." "And leave my specimens to the mercy of any Ynhoo thut hnppens along? My dear Curtis, I could not think of ltl since there's only you nnd I we can mako ourselves very comfortable. Hut I do hope tho crea turo will be all right In a short time, I am noxious to ho 111 Fremont to study the collision nf tho comet with my collenguo thero," "Collision of tho comet!" I repented straightening up, Thore's nothing so tiresome as rubbing a sprnln," "Certainly! Thut brilliant comet to which I have culled your attention for several nights, will surely collldo with tho enrth, In a few days at fur thest, The phenomenon will prove a rnro nnd wonderful ono, though as tronomers havo often expected such an occurronco, Unfortunately, something always seemed to lntcrforo." "May tho Interference continue," I said, laughing, "I don't believe tills old world will be smashed up yot nwhilo." "I did not say It would bo smash ed," returned tho professor with somo dignity. "The most advanced theorists agreo In saying that tho comet Itself is now only In a gaseous form, and that now only In a gaseous form, and that " "Hnllowoll," I Interrupted, "go and make tho coffee. We cun discuss guso ous comets while we cut." Threo (lays pusaed, und tho black was no better. As miseries never come single, his mute, u pretty in uro, having tho undue curiosity of her sex, experimented with a tempting weod, and was In a very serious condition when I found her. I dosod hor with several remedies, getting little holp from tho professor. Ho was so busy watching a cloud that lay ulong the horizon that I was tempted to smush his telcscopo In order to bring him down to mundane affairs, Having dono what I could for the poor mare, I came back to the wagon. "I don't heliovo sho'll pull through," I suld savagely. Tho professor squinted one eye up a llttlo tighter. "Amtiiilng!" he murmured. "It trnv ols with scarcely the sped of a locomo tive. I marvel the velocity Is no greater doubtless the earth's gravity exorcises a controlling Influence nt present" Then, In a different tone, "Curtis, there's a buffalo calf coming toward us. I suppose you would not be Interested If I told you of the ar rival of something really Important" I took tho glass out of his band. "It's not a calf, Hallowcll. It's a man riding like the deuce. What do you reckon Is the matter?" Hallowcll was from the east and was not used to southern localisms. "It Is Impossible to reckon anything on so slight a basis," ho answered se riously thon made a wild dive at something that floated by. When he turned to me thero was a shining bub bio In his hand. "Tho comet!" he shouted. "Tho col lision has occurred." "Do you call that thing a coraot?" I naked contemptuously. "I might say to you with FeBtus 'Much learn ing hath made tho mad.' " "It Is a detached fragment from the main body of the gas," ho repllod, dancing triumphantly around, "The comot as a whole Is thut faint cloud you see yonder." "The deuce It Is," I suld anxiously. "We shnll smother or bo blown away, I remember you snld something about Its traveling like a train." "Not blown away," corrected tho professor. !'Wo can tuko rofugo In the hole by thnt hemlock yonder. As to our chance of smothorlng, I wondor you can mention such a triflo In tho face of material of such overwhelming sclsntlflc Interest. I think" Wo were Interrupted by a cry from tho advancing horseman. I sow that he wns using whip and spur on his mount, and that tho latter Instoud of responding was evidently played out. Indeed, ns he reached us, the poor brute wont down. His rider stnggorcd up before I could lend my assistance. "For God's sake let me havo a horse!" he exclaimed cntrentlngly. "I am on my way from X, to Fremont, with a pardon for my brother. If I do not rench the town before 12 to morrow, the best man that ever buck led will die for no worse fuult than putting a bullet through that hound. Pistol Pete. It Is nearly 5 now!" "You shall have the horso and wel come," I replied, for the young follow's mnnly face was haggard with an awful grief, "but one Is dead lame, and tho other is too 111 to stand." He made a rush for the horses to satisfy hlmsolf, and came buck with a gesture of despair that went to my heart. "Look!" ho cried wildly, drawing out nn envelope. "There's n lifo In that paper nnd I have ridden ridden and met with one hindrance after another!" Tho professor looked nt him -pityingly. "How limited nro the capabilities of the body compared with the desires of the spirit," ho murmured. "I cannot benr It!" cried the strnng cr, frantically. "They told mo that was a good horse the liars!" Ho flung himself on tho ground nnd hard, dry sobs shook his chest. The professor picked up the glass. "In less than an hour It will be here," he said thoughtfully. "Thank Cod I am not a scientist," I said rudoly. "You fellows havo about r-i'nr""r"""" s much feellpg as the dry boast you study." The professor Iguored me, onif shook the prostrate man, "Get up," he said, eommandingly, a new note In his voice, "Do as I tell you, and yoor brother may be suved yet." The man rose. We both stared at Hallowcll. I womlerod If he hud really gone crnzy, "Tnko the tongue off the wagon," ho suld curtly, "und spread the cover nnd nil the cloth you can find on thu ground near mo." For a moment I hesitated; then it dimly occurred to me thnt even a bookworm might huvo original ideas, nnd I said sotto voce to tho newcom er "Do ns ho says; he's by no moans nu big a fool ns ho. looks." I rnthor think Hullowol overheard me, for ho shot a distinctly ungrateful glance In my direction, but he could say nothing, nu wo wore both now eeul oiiHly obeying him. Hu mado us cut tho great cloth cov er In two largo sails, and thoso wo fas tened on tho wagon under his orders, "Surely surely," I gimped, "you don't think that you can mako that cloud of gnu holp us? Why It's fad ing uwny!" ' "It Is not fading," said tho profes sor, brusquely. "It seems much faint- . er bocause you are so near It und bo- ) ciiuuo of tho action of tho sun on It. Do ns I tell you there's no time to Ioho," When he wns sutlBfled ho mado us scramble Into tho wngon und wo sut there, waiting for what? Three ap parently sane men In a horseless wng on, wnltlng for a sky motor which mo mentarily grow fainter! When ten minutes passed by outraged dignity as sert od itself. "I won't be mudo n fool of," I said, nngrlly, nnd sturtod to leuvo tho wug on. Hallowcll pushed me back on my sent. Then I beenmo nwaro of u sick ening odor a fresh brcezo on my back a palo nilBt around us shot with brllllunt hues, and lo! wo wero run ning over tho plain nt a rate thut threatened to wreck tho wugou our sails swelled out like two great wings. My hair was rapidly assuming n vcr-' tlcal position, but tho two fnces near me showed utter unconsciousness of danger. Thnt of tho strnugcr was burning with Joy and reverent thank fulness. To him it was a God-sent miracle for a good man's rescue. Tho professor wns radiant over this new factor in his knowledge and be mut tered his observations aloud. Neither soomed disturbed by tho fact that from the speed and the smell, breathing was no easy., mutter. As to mo my ono hope wnsl,thnt I might touch o'd earth again safely. On, on we flew. Again nnd again I expected an Immediate smushup, but our wngon was of flue and strong make, the plain was level, and we barter fair to reach tho town shortly. In less than two hours we were not three miles from Fremont! Then a torrlhlo Idea flashed on me which I hud been too hurried to think of before. Wo should pass the town! Like the brook, we might go on for ever or at leuBt far enough to wreck us on the broken lands beyond. As to the stranger, the trip would huvo been of no earthly use to him. "I shall Jump," he said simply, as if . In answer to an outspoken Inquiry. The professor was looking anxious bul he suld nothing. But wo had forgotten the little river lying near the town. Wo struck It like a cyclone, and its four feet of Water was whipped Into wild spray around us, whllo tho wugon spun like n frantic top, then stopped with u lurch thut nearly sent us flying. Klther tho force of our motor was lessening or porhnps, even at Its best, It would not have hud tlmo or strength to looson tun wagon from the heavy snag driven between tho spokes, for the palo gas rushed on, leaving threo dripping men and som& rulnod specimens In tho river, with Fremont not COO yards nway.
