Dorothy had come into the room where her mother and I were sewing, to show her mother a terrible three-cornered tear she had Just given her pretty gingham dress. I don't usually believe in punishing children for mistakes,"» said Dorothy's mother, after the small person had turned with quivering lip and tea refilled eyes to go upstairs, "but this is really the fourth time this week she has torn her dress, and she Is always tear ing or breaking or some way rulnin* something, and it doesn't seem to me there is any need of it. "Look at Ellis. She plays the same games that Dorothy does and goes everywhere and does every thing with her and yet she almost never tears her clothes, and she keeps them clean Just about twice as long as Dorothy doeu." Of course I didn't dare say very /luch then. I knew it wouldn't be quite polite to defend Dor othy too vigorously when her mother had thought fit to punish her. But. I'm going to take the opportunity now to say what I wanted to say then. And I'm saying it not only for Dorothy's mother _ in case she chanes to read this, b«it for mothers of Dorothys everywhere. I don't believe it was any more Dorothy's fault that she tore her dress than It was Ellis' that she didn't. 1 truly believe that some children are born with a tendency to have things happen to them. Their clothes tear, their stockings get hole in them, their toys break, their pinafores get dirty, their shoes wear out faster than other chil dren's, just naturally, without their being any more actively naughty. Poor kiddies. So often In disgrace, so often scolded, and yet most of the time very little to blame. . Be good to your Dorothys, mothers. Be as patient as your wonder ful mother heart teaches you how to be, and then a lot more. I know It Is a pretty hard task sometimes when they grow up, the nervous energy, and the harum scarum ways, and the flyawayness that caused the torn aprons and worn out shoes and soiled pinafores, may be developed into qualities that will make you proud to be the mother of a Dorothy. Help them to try to conquer and subdue themselves, of course. Help them try to acquire the poise and self possession that will make it possible to partly overcome their tendency to mishaps. But please, oh mothers of Dorothys everywhere—and of course this means little boy Dorothys, too— please pray for patience if you need to —and I'm pretty sure you will—not to blame tlieiu for those things that are truly—"their misfortunes, not their faults." ■n 73=1/e— Th· Boaster.

They Knew He Wn Poor Men ·»« WANT to tell you this evening," said dad<ly to Jack and Evelyn, "about ■ a man who did a great deal of good during his lifetime. He lived Jl about a hundred years ago, but Rome of the good that be did still re mains. His name wee Johnny Appleseed." "Oh, pape, what a strange name!" said Evelyn. "Wan that hie reel name?" "Oh, no," said daddy, "but that. Is the name by which he la beet known and by which he will be remembered. His real name wad John Chapman." "How did he get the name of Johnny Appleseed, daddy?" asked Jack. "That 1» what I am going to tell you," mid daddy. "He believed that there wee nothing In the world so good to eat as apple», and he went around the country telling the people how good they are. Not only that, but he gave thein seeds to plant and planted many of them himself. That 1· how he came to get the aaine of Johnny Appleseed. "When Johnny Appleseed lived this country did not have as many people aa It hae now, and In some parte of the country there were very few people besides the Indians. You know the Indians and the white people did not get along well with each other, and there were many fights between them. But the Indians never hothered Johnny Appleseed and never tried to harm him. "Johnny Appleseed was very fond of children, and the little one· liked him too. When the children who lived on the farms-there were very few ^ties and towns- in those days In the country in which Johnny Appleseed went—they used to call out to their mothers, 'Oh, here comes Johnny Apple seed" and the mothers would ask him to stop lu and have something to eat and stay awhllft" "Did he go through this part of the country, daddy?" asked Jack. "He traveled mostly through Ohio and Pennsylvania," said daddy. "In mauy places there are still standing apple trees which were raised- from seeds or cuttings that can be traced back to the trees planted by Johnny Appleseed. He need to clear a place In the forest, where no white man had ever been before, plaut hie seeds, fence In the patch, and when the white people came to live there he would eell the trees for a very small sum of money or give tiiem away free." "Is he still living, daddy?" asked one of the children. "No," said daddy, "he lost hie life while he was trying to do good. He heard one day that, some cattle had broken into one of his little apple tree nurseries, and he started to go twenty miles on foot to Hx up the fences so that the trees would not be hurt any more. Ou the way he became 111 and had to stop at a friend's house, where he died. He was a very good man.''

IORD RONHDA1.E Helmed nlrnost to forget caution-altnoal. but λ not quite. Perhaps he was de terred by the look un John Steele'· face—scornful, mocking, as If half inviting him to cast all prudence to the winds. This bit of evidence that be bad not calculated upou—It was hard to give It up, but no other course remained. Besides, another—Glllett— knew of its existence. Lord Ronsdnle felt bo could not depend ou that per son in an emergency of tills kind. The nobleman moved toward the desk. The paper fluttered from his cold fingers. When once more John Steele buttoned his coat the affidavit had again found lodgment in his waist coat pocket. Wbat J υ lu» Steele said was for Lord Ronsdal· alone. After Glllett had gone he laid down a condition. "And If I refuse to let yon dictate In a purely private concernV" I.ord Rons dale, white with passion, had answer ed. , "The end will be the name for you. As matters stand Sir Charles no doubt thinks still that you would make a desirable parti for his niece. Hie wife, Lady Wray, unquestionably shares that opinion. Their combined influ ence might In time prevail and Joee lyn Wray yield to their united wishes. This misfortune," with cutting deadli nes» of tone, "it is obvious muet be averted. You will consent to with draw all pretensions In that direction or you will force me to make public this paper. A full exposition of the case I think would materially affect Sir Charles and Lady Wray's attitude as to the desirability of an alliance be tween their family and yours." "And yourself? You forget," with a sneer, "how It would affect you!" "Myself!" John Steele laughed. "You fool! Do you imegine 1 would heel tate for that rer.son?" "Jfou lore her yolirseir, and"— John Steele stepped toward him. "Stop or— I have once been almost on the point of killing you tonight. Don't"— He broke off. "The condition? You consent or not?" "And If I—you would"— ''Keep your cbwardly secret? Yes!" Lord Honsdale nodded his head slowly, Indicating that he would cease his attentions to Jocelyu Wray. And as he did so a veuomous expression came into his face. A day a month after that night In Lord Ronsdale's rooms Captain For eythe, calling on John Steele, found himself admitted to the sitting room. The rooms were partly dismantled, a number of boxes littering the place indicating preparations te move. John Steele came in? His face was paler than It had been—thinner like that of a man who had recently suffered some severe illness. A short time passed. They talked on various topics. The military man putted mora quickly. It seemed the irony of fete or friendship that now that he was Just beginning to get bet ter acquainted with Steele the latter should Inconsistently determine to leave London. "Anything I can do for you when you're away?" began Captain For sythe. "Command me If there Is. Needn't say"— "There's only one thing." John Steele looked at him. Ills voice was steady, quiet. "And we've already spoken about that. Yon will let nie know If Ronsdale doesn't keep to the tetter or rne condition .' "Very well." Captain Forsythe's ex pression changed slightly, but the other did not appear to notice. "I shall leave with you certified cop lee of all the papers," said Steele lu a short, matter of fact tone. "These, to gether wltli the one yon furnished me, we absolutely conclusive." "The one I furnished you!" Captain Foreythe rested hie chin on the knob of hie stick. "Odd about that, wasn't it—that the day In the library at Strat horn House, when I was about to tell you how I had better success the sec ond time I visited the landlady, we should have been Interrupted? And," looking at the other furtively, "by Jocelyn Wray." Steele did not an swer. "If I had only seen the drift of your Inquiries, bad detected more than a mere perfunctory interest! With the confession given me on her deathbed by the landlady that she had testified falsely to protect lier good for nothing sou aud acknowledging that another whom she did not know by name, but whom she described minutely, bad entered the house on the fatal night—with this confession In your bands a world of trouble might have been saved. As It Is," ho ended half ruefully, "you have fouud ine most unlike the proverbial friend In need, who Is"— "A friend Indeed," said John Steele, placing a hand on the other's shoulder, while a smile somewhat constrained lighted his face for a moment, "who at once rose tp the occasion, hasteued to Londou on the receipt of a letter that was surely a teat of friendship"— "Oh, X don't know about that!" quickly. "Test of friendship. Indeed!" Captain Foreythe looked slightly em barrassed beneath the keen searching eyes. "Dou't think of It, or— Be sides," brightening, "I had to come.

"IJy Jove, forgot!" lie murmured. "Was tint to say anything about that." "Howeve*, as you have"— John Steele regarded him ♦steadily. "You received a telegram from"— "At the same time that your letter Intercepted me at Brighton." "Asking you to return to London?" "Exactly. She- wanted to see me." "About?" John Steve's eyes asked a question. The other nodded. "Of course. Not difficult to understand. Her deal re to huah up the affair. Her fear," with a short laugh, "lest the scandal become known. A (guest at fitratborn House bad been"— "I dou't think It was for"— "You found out," shortly, "that she, too, bad learned -knew"— "Yes; abe made me aware of that at once when she came to see me with Sir Charles. It was she sent your lug gage"— "Sir Charles? Then lie also"— "No. You—yo® need feel no appre hension on that score." A peculiar expression came into t be other's glance. "You see, his niece told hliu it was not her secret; asked him to help lier, to trust, her. Never was a man more perplexed, but he kept the word he gave her on leaving for London and forlxjre to question her. Even when they drove through London in that fog"— "Yes, yes. I know"— "You? How"— John Steele seemed not to hear. "She saw you that night?" "She did, alone In the garden ot Rosemary Villa. Sir Charles behaved splendidly. 'All right, my dear. Some day you'll tell me, perhaps,' he said to her. "Meanwhile I'll possess my soul In patience.' So while be smoked In the cab we talked It over." ••Well?" John Steele said shortly. "And the upshot of it all was"— "She suggested my going to Lord Ronsdale." "To Invoke his assistance, perhaps!" Steele once more laughed. "As nn old friend!" Captain Forsythe started to speak. The other went on, "Well, we'll keep Ills secret as long as he keeps his compact." "Bnt"— "I promised. What does it matter? Sir Charles mav be disappointed at not being able to bring about— But tor her sake—that is the main considera tion." "And you, the question of your Inno cence- to her?" Forsythe looked at blm narrowly, smiled slightly to him self . "Is- Inconsequential! The main point is—the Frisco Tot Is dead. Olllett won't speak. You won't. Lord Rons dale can't. Another to whom I am about to tell the story will, I am sure, be equally silent." "Another?" •IWUII oiccic siuiifu. tHU yuu IIIIIIK of no one to whom I am bound to tell the truth, the whole truth?

I cfmld have delegated you— to tell hlai all. but that wouldn't do. It Is probably a part of the old, old debt,, but I must meet him face to face. So Γ have sent for"— A bell rang. A servant opened the door of ) be library. Sir ι -linl» Wray walked In. Below, In the cn^ Jfc»»Tyn walled. Her pale face ntpKf·;ed restlessness. She held in her ffuml a bit of crumpled paper. It was John Steele's note to Sir Charles asking him lo call, stat ing nothing beyond a mere perfunc tory request to that end. giving no reason for his wish lo sec him. "Can you drop in at my chambers for η few minutes?" John Steele bad written. "A few minutes." The blue eyes shone with impatience. He was leaving London, Captain Porsythe had Informed her, and, she concluded, he wanted to see her uncle before he left But not her; uo. She had drlvei there, however, willi Sir Charles on some light pretext—for want of some thing better to do—to be out in the air— "I'll wait here In the cab," she had said to her uucle when he had left it before John Steele's dwelling. "'At least," meeting the puzzled gaze that bad rested on her more than once lately, "I may or may not wait. If I get tired, if when you come back you don't find me, Just conclude." capri ciously, "I have gone on some little errand of my own-shopping, perhaps." I She recalled these words now, found It intolerable to sit still. Abruptly she rose and stepped from the cab. She half started to move away, I looked toward the house. Brass plaies ; variously disposed around the en- j trance and appearing nearly all alike j as to form and size stared at her. One metal sign a shack headed lad was removing—"John Steele." Hhe read I lie plain, modest letters, the in scription Barrister" beneath. She caught her breath slightly. "Uncle is certainly very long," she repeated mechanically. "Why don't you go lu and see wot's detaining of him?" vouchsafed the cabby in amicable fashion as he re garded the hesitating, slender Ugure. "Third floor to the right, inks," said the boy, occupied In removing the sign and stepping aside as he spoke to al low her to pass, "If it's Mr. Steele's office you're looking for. You'll see 'Barrister' hi brass letters, as I said to the old gentieiuau. I haven't got at the» yet -to take them down, I mean."
