kindly expression was never wanting
in too countenance of the young
hostess, and, in fact, Antje had no
cans t to show unfriendliness to the
beautiful young girl.
Hilda's conduct was blameless.
She was very modest, very attentive
and—very cold. She had assumed a
grave, serious air, which was a
wonderful contrast. Indeed, to her
deep, wistful eyes, but Hilda received
all her host's attentions with as much
reserve as was to be exported from
a well-bred young girl. She would
be nothing more than an ordinary ac
quaintance and guest.

what. Jg>o had said to the young girl
on that Christmas morning; if she
had not always had ringing in her
••ars that passionate softness of his
tones; if she could banish the memory
of the young girl's heavy sobs!
And Leo stayed at home so much
now; he only went to Dresden oc
casionally—"on business.” Antje
knew what he meant by that -to get
money from the bank. She watched
him drive away with a grave face,
and she received him without re
proaches when he returned, which

Then they wandered far away among
the wintry hills; sometimes they did
not come home till dusk, and Anti

their faces that they had been dls-

ing out Into the distance, where they
two had dlsappared, and a sigh of
relief escaped her lips when the
couple at length returned.
It had grown very quiet at Blbyllen
burg. Irene von Erlach, after a
rather hurried marriage, had left
home with her husband, amt they
were enjoying themselves somewhat
dli the Nile. The young men who
had nlways beon hanging shout the
gay young widow had made their last
appearance In tho neighborhood on
the wedding-day. Jussnltz had nor
tnvited them to come and see him. be
cause be hail "his work to do," and
Antle preferred a quiet life. There
was in the house now that quietness
which the young wife had always
longed for, but there was no peace in
her heart. That she found only with
her little daughter. When the our
( ante round at which the beautiful
Spanish girl was accustomed to ap
pear In the studio In tier yellow, lace
trlmmvd Silk, An'je took refuge with
her child. She taught It little verses,
idayed with Its dolls, sometimes
pressed the little one close to her
breast, laughed at whatever the
childish lips lot fall, and seemed like
n careless child herself, only that the
tears often streamed down her cheeks
as she played.
Once she had gone Into the studio,
carrying the tray with the daintily,
ordered lunch, but only once. She
had appeared with her caviare and
her salmon sandwiches In the very
midst of a dissertation of her hus
band’s, to which Hilda, sitting on a
low stool, slowly waving her fan. was
listening intently, with drooping
lashes. 1,00 was talkig about the two
Madonnas of Holbein In the Harm
staili and the Dresden galleries, with
great ardor. They did not even st r
the young wife, whose step was noise
less on the soft carpet. She set the
tray down softy on a table and went
away.
At the llmo when she had first
visited the Dresden gallery with h- r
husband, she had said to him: "Te’l
me, Leo, which of the Madonnas do
von consider the original?” And he
had replied; "Ah. child, you do no.

should have to make a long explant

Hut this “some time" had never

pi dilation, but to another. move
worthy of consideration than she!
"How long will this torture last*”
she said to herself bitterly, and she
knew very well that It would last a
long time yet.
"I must make some compensation

l>*o to Antje one day. "I cannot very

Antje replied that she could not
judge of this matter. “I do not know
how far FYculein you Zwetdorf Is able
to dispose of her own time,” she
added.
•‘Bah!" he replied. ‘They will be
glad enough at home to know that she
is in good hands for a time.”
Antje was silent; the matter was
settled. Hilda did some painting
herself now; she had declared that
she must earn some money. Leo
procured silk, leather, and water
color paper, and an art-dealer in
Berlin undertook the sale of the trifles
she made. Even Antje once bought
several little note books on which a
h'rd or a flower was painted with
wonderful truth to nature. With hei
earnings Hilda bought for herself a
simple but pretty costume, and
gradually she ceased to look shabby.
She did not wear Leo's Christinas
brooch; she had returned it to him in
Antje’s presence with the remark that
she never accepted gifts, least of all
suc h costly ones. The pretty glitter
ing thing was now lying in a drawer
of Leo's writing-table, with the
Jeweller's unpaid bill beside It. Ah.
how many unpaid bills were there
lying in that same drawer!
"r will settle them all before April,'
h ha<l said. “By that time my
picture will be sold.”
And so the days hail slipped by.
it seemed lo Antje as If there were a
gray veil continually before her eyes;
everything was so Indifferent to her,
everything—except tho child!
Ah, the child! In a moment Antje
was back In the presont, and she ran
to the spot where her darling lay on
the caipet and looked down at her.
How pretty Leonie was with her
golden curls and her little apple
blossom face! Would she have a
happy life? So far as Antje could
make It so—she certainly would. She
should learn a great deal; and she
should learn not to hide what she
know, as her poor, silly mother did,
who always was afraid when an op
portunity offered to join in the con
versation.
How long Leo and Hilda stayed out
today! The great room was already
getting quite dark, and they had not
come yet.
Antje remembered that Hilda had
spoken of a particularly picturesque
pol.it of view which she had dis
covered a short time before on the
banks of the Elbe, and which they
were going to visdt today. True, they
liad gone In that direction. The
young mother carried htr bJeeniii#
( hild to its nurse; then she per-I
fclved that she had left her key
basket in the studio, and she went
hastily back to look for it. The hall
and staircase were already lighted,
and she saw the servant coming up
with a package of newspapers and
several letters.
'Something for the gracious lady,”
he snid, and hurrying up. he gave
Antje a letter.
It was a big letter, with the address
in a business hand. She at once
recognized the writing of Kortmer.
the old foreman of the iron works, and
an old friend of the family.
As he usually sent his greetings to
her through her mother, Antje was
surprised at getting a letter from him.
She went quickly up to the lamp,
which was upheld by a colossal figure
in bronze, opened the letter, read it
hastily, and then let fall the hand
which held it, with au expression of
torturing anxiety on her face. In
voluntarily, she turned her steps
toward the studio again, thinking that
her husband might have come in In
the mean time.
"Leo!" she called, and then listen
ed. Her eyes, blinded by the light,
could distinguish nothing in the dark
ness.
No answer. She felt for the chair
In which she had been sitting sat
down, then got up again, took a few
steps to the window and gat’d out
into the garden. The grass-plats
looked like dark shadows, and the
white gravel walks shone out among
J them like broad, curling ribbons. A
few yellow strips of sky still glimmer
ed In the west among the dark clouds,
looking solemn and inysterloua. as

heavens In the picture# of the cruci

Such a picture hung above her
mother’s bed at home; Antje could
see It before her distinctly at this
moment, and she saw also a feverish
face resting on the white cushions.
?aw eyes looking Inquiringly up to the
Saviour as if begging for relief, and
then searching about the room for the
only object that bound her to this
world— her daughter.

she had no time to loae.
She controlled herself and looked
about for her key-basket; there It was
n Leo's great writing-table. She
would go and pack up something for
her Journey. The nurse was a trust
worthy person, and so was Classen,
everything would go on Just as well
without her —ah. yea. everything!
Sho walked noiselessly across the
carpet and then stopped suddenly.
She heard a door open across the hall.
“Auf wiedersehen, HUdcgarde,” she
heard In soft tones; "get well rested,
your feet must ache after that long
walk. Auf wiedorsttoen, at supper! ”
There was no answer; Leo had shut
the door. He had only said these few
words as she was going to her room.
Then the door of the da k studio
opened.
“IjCO,’ said the young wife as he
came in.
"Who is it? What, you here?"
cried. “Why have you no light? It
is as dark as pitch! Wnere are the
matches? Can't you find the bell, at
least?”
“Leo, only one word," she interrupt
ed, hastily. “I have just heard from
Kortnier that my mother is very 111.
Of course, I wish to go to her —now
I— at once. You have no objection
Leo? lam so very anxious! she must
be very 111.”
Leo, In the mean time, had lighted
a match and lighted the candles in
the great chandelier. His expression
was that of a man who had had a verv
unpleasant surprise.
"You cannot get up and go off all in
a minute like that!” he said, slowly.
“For Heaven's sake, Leo, Kortmer
writes that my mother lias been un
conscious since the day before
yesterday.”
‘‘Well, probably she is much better
by this time. The news is at lease
two days old."
“Leo, how can you! I am so
horribly anxious—she has no one but
me ”
“Old Hanna is there," he persisted,
obstinately. “You cannot possibly
leave the house —now! You forged
that you have a young lady visiting
you, who could not possibly stay
alone with me.”
Antje stood and looked at him with
great, astonished eyes. "And lam to
leave my sick mother alone for the
sake of this stranger?” she said in a
low voice.
"You do not seem to take In the
situation," he replied, beginning to
walk up and down the room. “If you
go, Hilda will be forced to go away
also this evening, and where Is she
to go? Pray, calm yourself, and to
morrow I will telegraph to the doctor,
and if your mother is no better, well
—then there will be time enough to
make some arrangement.”
She turned her back upon him and
w’alked to the door without a word.
“Wait a minute!” he cried, im
petuously. “You misunderstand the
matter entirely,” he continued, when
she had stopped. “You know that
ever since that Christmas eve at
Barrenberg’s people have been talking
about this poor girl. If you go away
now, they will say, of course, that you
have left me, because —oh, confound
it, don't put on a face like that, you
know very well what I mean,” he con
cluded, angrily. “It is too absurd,
but —in short, we are living In the
world, and must govern ourselves
accordingly.”
Antje gave an almost imperceptible
shrug of her shoulder, and left the
room.
He looked gloomily after her, and
sank down into a chair, the same *n
which Autje had just heen sitting.
He felt very uneomfortabl“ at this
moment, for he had never before
seen his wife look so utterly
miserable.
But, good Heavens, what woman is
so situated that she can get up and go
off when something happens In her
old home? And Antje could not go.
and must not go; It was impossible
just now r .
Leo stopped to pick up the letter
she had dropped.
"I do not like to make you anxious

sider It my duty to write to you. in

God forbid! Your mother has been
very ill for several days. If it is
possible, I hope you wilf come. That
your mother herself fears the worst
is proved by the fact that she sent for
her lawyer yesterday. A few hours
later she lost consefonsness. Of
course, that does not necessarily
imply that the worst is to be feared.
But ft will be better for you to come,
and then you will be here In any case
and I am sure It would do your
mother a great deal of good—“
l.eo folded up the letter and put It
in l is desk.
’ Exaggerated, of course.” he mut
tered. and began to open some other
letters whleh were lying there. As he
read the first hastily took, out his
handkerchief and wiped his forehead,
and for a few moments his face look
ed quite haggard.
“Another false alarm! H’m! Runo
and Raskert are as solid as the uni
verse.—What could the old lady have
wanted with her lawyer, 1 wonder?”
he thought, half aloud. "In that case,
perhaps it would be as well for Antje
to go, after all. Bah! people do not
die so easily. But tomorrow 1 must
go to the bank again.”
He stopped again and picked up a
little r*d bow, the same that Antje
had flung away from her. He stared
at It as If lost In thought; he re
membered that Hilda had worn It ;n
her hair that morning. Then he
sighed aud laid It carefully down on
the writing-table, but Immediately took
It up again and stroked It gently with
his finger, ss If he had the hand of a
beautiful and beloved woman In his
own. Another deep sigh, and then he
, flung the dainty bow on the table.
"It is enough to drive one mad!" he
muttered, and got up and went to the
window, hla clenched fist resting on
the sill. Suddenly It was clenched
[ more firmly, for down below, there on
the light gravel path, moved a slender

A NEW TARIFF BILL
MEASURE PROVIDED FOR PHILIP
PINES REPORTED.
AFTER RECENT IDECISION
Says islands Must Have Money for
Schcol Purposes and Harbor Im
provements Richardson’s Minor
ity Report—Bill to Buy Telegraph
Lines.
Washington. D. C-, Dec. 14. —Chair-
man Payne of the committee on ways
and means yesterday presented the
majority report on the Philippines
tariff bill. It says:
“This bill is designed to raise rev
enue for the government and benefit
of the Philippine archipelago. It is
intended to restore the status which
existed prior to the late decision of
the supreme court in the diamond
rings case. Prior to that decision the
government had been collecting du
ties on goods coming into the United
States from the Philippines archipel
ago at the same rates as those pro
vided in our tariff laws for like ar
ticles imported from foreign countries.
The court holds that the Philippine
archipelago is not a ioreign country
and therefore the general tariff law
does not apply. This bill extends the
rate now existing upon imports from
foreign countries to articles brought
from the Philippine islands.
“The necessity for a continuance of
revenue which shall be both ample
and certain is imperative. If we con
tinue the police and constabulary sys
tem which has been inaugurated, and
which Is doing so much to restore and
conserve order in the islands, it will
call for a large increase in appropri
ations. We have enrolled 150,000
school children in the public schools.
Of this numuber more than one-half
are without any school house accom
modation. It is necessary that we
build suitable houses at once. Ten
thousand adults were at last accounts
enrolled for night schools and we
zrr told that this number has since
in- ased probably to at least 35,000.
people, anxious to learn our
language and to better their mental
condition, must be amply provided for.
Four thousand teachers have beqp em
ployed, nearly all of them recently,
and their salaries must be paid. This
great work of education must not be
crippled, even for a short time, for
lack of funds.
“The bill also provides for the col
lection of tonnage taxes on vessels
plying between the ports of the United
States and the Philippine archipelago.
It further provides that vessels not of
the United States may ply between
these ports, notwithstanding our
coastwise navigation laws, until the
Ist of January. 1905, when it Is be
lieved these islands may safely come
under the operation of our present
statutes, and vessels only of the
United States be employed in our
commerce with them.”
The Minority Report.
Representative Richardson (Tenn.)
presented to the house the minority
report signed by all the democrats of
the committee except Mr. Robertson
(La.) The report says in part:
“The measure is but another step in
the well-marked line of imperialism.
It is enacting a policy of pure coloni
alism and the worst for of that policy.
We are opposed to our government at
tempting to hold territories as colo
nies and treating the inhabitants there
of as subjects and imposing upon
them a government of force. This is
the method of the empire fnstead of
that of the republic. We ofipose the
whole policy of the majority in deal
ing with the Philippine archipelago.
We believe that instead of the effort
they are making to set up and hold
permanent colonies there we should
long since have inaugurated a policy
assuring the people of those Islands
stable government and thefr ultimate
independence.”
To Vote Wednesday.
Mr. Bayne announced th.t he would
call np the bill for consideration next
Tuesday. He asked that .he bill be
considered Tuesday and Wednesday.
The house agreed and adjourned until
Tuesday.
Representative Robinson (Ind.> yes
terday introduced two measures, de
signed to secure the extradition of for
mer Gov. Taylor of Kentucky from In
diana to Kentucky, where he is wanted
in connection with the Goebel tragedy.
One of the measures is for an Investi

state is refusing to recognixe extradi- 1
tion papers from the governor of an
other state. The other measure pro
vides that in case a governor refuses
to reeognixe extradition papers they
may be executed by a United States
marshal.
The house committee on Interstate

port the Hepburn bill providing for the
construction of the Nicaragua canal.

FEDERAL LAW MAKERS.
Washington. Dec. 9.—The senate
chamber was the scene of a highly
dramatic epLode when Senator Till
man of Sou’h Carolina challenged
his colleague, Senator McLaurin, to
resign with him on the spot in order
that !!:•-}■ might be able “to wash
thel. duty linen at home.” Senator
McLaorin did not take up the guage .
The incident was a direct sequel of
the bitter controversy which arose
between the senators in South
Carolina last spring.
Senator McLaurin arose to a ques
tion of personal privilege and pro
ceeded to explain what he charge-1
was a conspiracy to discredit him in
his own state for acts and views
which did not meet the approval of
certain democratic leaders. He de
clared he was being humiliated and
according to public prints was to be
excluded from the democratic caucus
because he had acted upon certain
public issues in a way which he con
sidered was for the best interest of
the country and the people of his
state. He announced himself a be
liever In the old democracy and after
denouncing the new democratic
leaders who, he said, had brought
destruction upon the party, de
clared he could not be driven from
his old allegiance into a party with
which he did not care to affiliate
Senator Jones, chairman of U.e
democratic national committee, de
nied that he had any ulterior motives
in not inviting Senator McLaurin to
enter the caucus. Senator Tillman
reviewed the whole cotroversy.
Senator Lodge presented in execu
tive session a report of the com
mittee on foreign relations, recom
mending favorable action upon the
Hay-Pauncefote isthmian canal
treaty. Senator Hoar offered a
resolution to authorize the presided
to enter into negotiations with other
civilized countries for the purpose of
selecting some island or other suit
able territory to which might be
transported and confined persons
instigating or counseling the destruc
tion of all government or those at
tempting the lives of chief magis
trates. It was referred to the com
mittee on foreign relations. Senator
Ildar introduced a bill giving the
United States jurisdiction in cases of
lynching and making the crime of
participation In lynchings punishable
by death.
Washington. Dec. 11. —The senate
went into executive session to further
consider the Hay-Pauroefctc treaty.
Two speeches were made, one by Sen
ator Bacon in opposition to the treaty
and one by Senator Cullom, prospect
ive chairman of the committee on
foreign relatione, in support of it. Sen
ator Bacon replied to the speech
made Tuesday by Senator Lodge. He
summed up his objections in the state
ment that he could not freely accept
any treaty which does not place the
Isthmian canai under American
aaspices and American control. This,
he said, the pending treaty does not
do, nor does it do anything like it. It
did not by long odds accomplish
what had been accomplished by senate
amendments made to the Hay-Phutrce
fote treaty at the last, session of con
grc*. He said the war restrictions of
the treaty were entirely inconsistent
with the claims of Senator Lodge
that this country should say who
could use the canal and who saould
not to case of hostilities. In con
clusion Senator Bacon announced that
while he had no intention of voting
for the treaty he would do nothing to
obstruct the ratification. Senator
Cullom contended the new treaty
radically changed the conditions
presented by the first Hay-Pauuce
fote treaty, clearly relieving It of iffie
necessity of such an amendment as
that made to the old treaty upon the
suggestion of Senator Davis becawse
the treaty itself would permit the
United States under international
law to own, manage and defend' the
canal to any way that it may choose.
Washington. Dec. 12. —The senate
agreed to vote before adjournment
Monday on the new Hay-Pauwofote
treaty. This agreement was. reached
after a four hours’ debate sufficiently
interesting to insure the constant
attention of most senators. Senator
Spooner, who was one of the principal
speakers, had just eonclutpjd when
Senator Lodge made an effort o
secure a vote. It developed there
were other senators who desired to be
hoard, the result being the date for
I the vote was postpone*! until Monday.
The agreement provided for the ad
journment of the senate from todey
until Monday. The principal speakers
beside Senator Spooner were Senators
Money and Foraker. Mr. Mon ?y,
while finding much in the treaty to
criticise, said as he found the fortunes
of the proposed canal across the
isthmus inextrtcably Intertwined whh
the treaty he could not see his way
(clear to do anything that would pre
vent or even delay the ratification.
Senator Foraker maintained the pro
visions of the new treaty would meet
every objection made to the original
Hay-Pauncefote treaty and cover
every essential thing tnclnded in the
amendments made by the senate to
that document. He remarked as of
the utmost importance that the
Olayton-Bulwer treaty should be wiped
out. He asserted that all the rights
,of the United States were amply pro
jected under this treaty and our
absolute and complete control of the
canal could not be questioned jy
Great Britain or any other power.
Senator Bacon asked if it was not
true that under the terms of the
treaty the construction of fortifica
tions by the United States would be
an act of war. Senator Foraker re
plied in the negative, declaring that
not only would such au act not be an
act of hostility, but to build fortifica
tions in case of necessity was on® of
the inherent rights of the government.
Senator Spooner also was frequently
interrupted by* senators on the demo
cratic side. Answering these, he
maintained that England, after con
tending for half a r urv against
fortifications, had waive 1 that pro
vision, thus practically seeding our
right to fortify the proposed canal.
During the interruptions many sena
tors on both sides took part in the
controversy. Senator Spooner con
tended that the United States would
have the right to control tho canal
after it3 own manner during any war
to which this country might boa
party. Senator Mason interjected
that theaty agreements never bind a
nation to the extinction of its military
rights and duties. Senator Spooner
assented and said no matter what
might he the provisions of the treaty
a nation -euld not be accused of dis
honor or immorality if its terms were
broken in defense of its own ex
istence.

LOVE'S SYMPTOMS-
To be in love is to know anxiety in
the hour of his illness and apprehen
sion over his weakness; to feel re
sponsihility. which you mast bear tor
yoursoff. No one can even share with
you to lighten your burden.
Tt> be in love is to have half youp
life go with him when the door doses,
and to live only for his return.
It is to have all your selfish desin a
iae shape and resolve themselves in
to ambitions for him.
It is to find your happiness ia hi*'
for your ideais to take a more virite
form; your hopes a loftier aspect
It is to forget yourself and your
eager search for happiness, and to
merge your whole existence into a
