She had believed H that she knew the world, It was all H yet a mystery; the older she grew the B less she understood. Wasn't anybody H good? Was every body to be distrust- H cd ' Which way should hr turn now? H The world was beautiful enough; It H was the people In It. I'oor Hetty! She J had her troubles, too; but somehow H the refused to confide them. She acted H very much as If she were In love. 1 She would never marry Doppelklnn H Hut how should she escape how? H On Wednesday night she would be H given her quarterly allowance of a H thousand crowns, and on Thursday she H in ti.-1 art. . . . Yea, yes, that was It! H How simple! She would slip over Into H Doppelklnn, where they never would H think to search for her. She knew a B place In which to hide. From Doppcl- HH kinn she would go straight to Dresden HHl and seek the protection of her old gov- HHl erness, who would hide her till the HHi duke came to his senses. If only Bhe HHl ha I an independent fortune, how she HHj would snup her fingers at them all' HHj She was distracted by the sound of H jangling steel. Artemis had cast a m shoe. How annoying! It would take HVl ten minutes to reach old Kauer's HH smithy, and ten minutes more to put Br "ti u .-.line She brought tho filly down LEi to a walk. ft If only she were Hetty, free to do Hgej what she pleased, to go and come at hU will! She wasn't born to he u prln- uSjjC cess; she wasn't commonplace rSpuL enough; she enjoyed life too well. Ah, l.ajjugj If only she might live and act llko tim those Kngllsh cousins of hers with H: whom she went to school! They could kL tide man-fashion, hunt man-fashion, HPf shoot, play cards and bet at the raceB W man-fashion, and nobody threatened $ba them with Doppelklnns. They might Vtl dunce, too, till the sun came Itito the JfuJ' windows and the rouge on their faces mB cracked. Hut she! (I use the em HD phasis to Illustrate the decided nods of Sf her pretty head.) Why, every sweet ; gnc had to be stolen! bJVB Presently the smithy came into view, pBB emerging from a cluster of poplars. HW She rode up to the doors, dismounted HH and entered. Old Hauer himself was HK at the bellows, and the weird blue H light hissing up from the blown coals Hj discovered another customer. She H turned and met his frank glance of ail H miration. (If she hadn't turned! If H his admiration hadn't been entirely Bf frank!) Instau'ly she sent Hauer a H warning glance which that old worthy Hi seemed Immediately to understand. B Tho stranger waa tali well made. Hi handsome, with yellow hair, and eyes as blue as the sky is when the west wind blows. lie liilnd his cap. and the heart of the girl fluttered. Wherever had lM seemly fellow como from? "fjood morning." said the strnncer courteously. "I ree that you have had the same misfortune as myself." "You have lost a shoe? Rather an noying, when one doesn't want a sin . gle break in the going." She title: id the words carelessly, as If she wasn't at all Interested. The stranger stuffed his cap Into a pocket. She was glad that, she had chosen the new saddle. The crest and coat of arms had not yet been burned upon the leather nor engravd upon the sil ver ornaments, and there wns no blanket under th" Kngllsh saddle. There might bo an adventure; one could not always tell. She must hide her Identity. If the Strang) r know that she helnngril to the House of Harsehelt, possibly he would be frightened and take to his heels. Hut the I'rlnci-Ks lllldegnnle did not know that this strniiiror never took to his heels; he wasn't that kind. Prin cess or peasant, It would have been all tho same to him. Only his tone might have lost half a key. Hauer called to his assistant, and the girl stepped out Into the road. The stranger followed, as she knew he would. It will be seen that Bhe know something of men, If only that they possess curiosity. "What a beautiful place this Is!" the stranger ventured, waving his hand to ward the still lake and the silent, misty mountains. "There is no place quite like It." she admitted. "You are a stranger in Har sehelt?" politely. He was young and t certainly the best-looking man st-chad " was roving. He became simple lotia. She mlsh! bo simple, nml then again she nilghtn t. She was worUt studying, anyhow i n h cavalryman, wiih nothing to do but obey orders ami, when ordered, light. I am visiting the American eon Bttl hero; he was a schoolmate of mine." "Ah! I thought I recognlred the horse." "You know him?" quickly. "Oh," casually, "every one here about has seen the consul on his mom Ing rides. He rides like a centaur, they say; but I have never seen a cen tattr." The stranger laughed. She wai charming. "He ought to rldo well; I taughl him." Hut the gay smile which fol lowed this statement robbed It of iti air of conceit. "You see, I have rldder part of my life on the great plains ol the west, and have mounted every thing from a wild Indian pony to ar. Bnflurtl thoroughbred. My name li Max Scharfenstoln, and 1 am here at a medical student, though In my owi country I have the right to bang out a physician's shingle." She drew plmless figures In the dusl with her riding crop. There was nc sense In her giving any name. Prob ably they would never meet again And yet "I nm Hlldegarde von von Held eloff," giving her mother's name. He was too nice to frighten away. The hesitation over the "von" did not strike his usually keen ear. H was too Intent on noting tho variant expressions on her exquisite face. II was a pity she was dark. What a fig ure. and how proudly the head rested upon the slender but firm white throat! "I'm Hlldegarde von von Heldeloff." seen In a month of moons. If Doppel klnnn, now, were only more after this pattern! "Yes. this Is my first trip to Bar schelt." He had a very engaging smile. "You are from Vienna?" "No." "Ah, from Berlin. I was not quite sure of the accent." "I am a Oerman-American," frank ly. "I have also spoken the language as If It were my own, which doubtless It Is." "America!" she cried, her Interest genuinely aroused. "That Is the coun try where every one does Just as he pleases." Sometimes." (What beautiful teeth she had, white as skimmed milk!) "They are free?" "Nearly always." "I'Id y tell me that women there are all queens." "We are there, or here, always your humble servants." He was evidently a gentleman; there was something In his bow that was courtly. "And do the womeu attend the theaters alone at night?" "If they desire to." "Tell me, does the daughter of the president have Just as much liberty as her subjects?" "Even more. Only, there are no sub jects In America." "No subjects? What do they call them, then?" "Voters." "And do the women vote?" "Only at the women's clubs." She did not quite get this; not that It was too subtle, rulher that It was not within her comprehension "It is a big country?" "Kver so big." ' Do you like It?" "I love every inch of It. I have even fought for It." "In the Spanish war?" visibly ex cited "Yes." "Were you a major or a colonel ?" "Neither, only a private." "1 thought every soldier there was either a colouei or a major." He looked at her sharply, but her After all, black eyes, such as these were, might easily rival any blue eyea he had ever seen. (Which goes to prove that a man's Ideals are not built us solidly as might be.) "Do you speak Kngllsh?" she asked abruptly in that tongue, with a full glance to note the effect. "Kngllsh Is spoken to some extent in the United States," he answered gravely. He did not evince the least surprise at her fluency. "Do you write to the humorous pa pers In your country?" "Only to subscribe for them." said he. And again they laughed; which was a very good sign that things were go ing forwurd tolerably well. And then the miserable fellow of a smith had to come out and announce that the stranger's horse was ready. "I'll warrant tho shoe." said Hauer. "You haven't lost any time," said Max, his regret evident to every one. The girl smiled approvingly. She loved humor In a man. and this one with the yellow hair and blue eyes seemed to possess a fund of the dry sort. All this was very wrong, she knew, but she wasn't going to be the princess this morning; she was going to cast off the shell of artificiality, of etiquette. "How much will this shoe cost me?" Max asked. "Half a crown." said Hauer, with a sly glance at the girl to see how she would accept so exorbitant a sum. The princess frowned. "But some times," added Hauer hurriedly, "I dolt for uuthing." "Hauer, your grandfather was a rob ber," the girl laughed. "Take heed that you do not fidlow In his foot steps." "I am a poor man. your mm Prau-li-in." he stammered. "Here's a crown," said Max, tossing a coin which was neatly caught by the grimy hand of the smith. "Are you very rich?" asked the al curiously. "Whyt" counter-questioned Max. (TO UK CONTINUED.) I CACTUS LEATHER NEW PRODUCT. Giant Saguaro from Mexico Adapted to New Use. New York. The recent discovery of I l new product, called cactus leather, was an accident, like a great many other useful discoveries. There are almost a thousand spei bs of cacti, a large number of which for est the deserts of Arizona and some of the states, anil extend far Into Mex ico. Tho saguaro cactus, or Cereus gl ganteus, the largest growth of all, which towers sometimes to a height of The Giant Saguaro. l.r feet or more, heretofore has nevei , been utilized for any purpose, except that tho fruit Is sometimes eaten by the Indians. In Mexico the maguey plant li largely used in the manufacture o' I pulque, mescal, tequila and agua mlel and the fiber for rope nnd matting Prom the pulp of the leaves paper Is i made. Tuna, the fruit of the opuntla, is rel lshed by many. The ocotillo has served usefully in the construction of houses, or shacks, i nml fences for the Mexican1 and in- ' dlans. Prom the nlggerhead cactus echlno- i cactus wlsllzenll cactus candy Is tn. t, I,- by softening the fiber by boiling and filling the pores with sugar. Other species of cacti have limited uses. In Tucson one day, while handling a piece of the echinocactus wlsllzenil. the writer noticed, after the moisture was pressed from the fiber, the great strength and pliability it possessed. When dry, however, it became brittle ( and chalklike. KxperlmentB, In an ef fort to obtain strength and pliability In the liber when dry, led to success after about a year of careful work. It was discovered that the giant sa guaro was particularly adapted to the , manufacture of cactus leather products. The heart of the saguaro is peculiar ly formed, being a series of rods or poles set In a circle, extending from top to bottom of the cactus, and Into the earth In the form of roots. This heart of the cactus also proved of great value in the manufacture of niauy fancy articles, such as baskets, caneholders, boxes, picture frames, veneers and for numerous other pur poses too varied to mention. When UBed In this way sufficient of the fiber Is left adhering to the rods to bind them together In the form de sired. After tanning and drying this fiber makes a tough, leathery Joint, which binds the sticks together in tho most secure manner. Orthodox Economy. We have been brought up to bow before the fetich of competition. In our economic ritual we are accus tomed to such nntiphonal responses as "competition Is the life of trade," "business is business," "let him get who can and keep who Is able " That expresses the economic faith of most of us or the service we render In lieu of faith. There Is another economic shibboleth, the Anglo-Saxon Idea of i liberty. It has run riot with us. It i means the right, seemingly, to do sh one pleases, and most of us live by thls fait li We do not, perhups, rob 1 1 eat corporations or break Into bunks or steal from our neighbor, hut we full to pay our taxes or we beat the railways or the custom house. What ' Is the use of paying the full rate when other people art puylng one-half or in nub : There is no Justice in a man's laying on himself these unnec essary burdens.

When Moneyed Men of Maine Feared for Their Gold. For two years, from 1812 to 1814. the treasure of all the banks of the Forest City lay In the parlor of the Marrott house In Stnndlsh village, and as evidence of the fact to-day upon the parlor door can be seen the huge lock which was placed there nearly a cen tury ago to odd safeguard to the treasure. During the war of 1812 the bankers of Portland thought their treasure war In danger of being looted by the Brit Ish forces, and In casting about for a Safe l,!:n-. thnlr rhnlr.11 foil ,,,.,,,, it,, town of Standlsh and the Marrett house as a depository for the treasure Loaded upon a six-ox cart and guarded closely, the money, thousands of dol lars of It, was transported 16 miles and deposited In the place of safety, where It remained for two years with a guard of but one man to watch It. The door of the parlor in which the money was placed was re-enforced by a heavy lock having a brass handle, and extra supports were placed under the floor of the room to sustain the enormous weight of wealth. The hottBe is still owned by descendants of Rev. Mr. Merrett and Is one of the oldest of the town. Lewlston Journal. UNABLE TO SEE THE FUTURE. Shortsighted English Statesman De nounced Penny Postage. "Of all tho wild and vUlonary Bchemes of which I have ever heard or read It Is the most extraordinary." That was the official comment made by I -onl Lichfield, postmaster general of Kngland, on Rowland Hill's proposal to establish a uniform postal rate of a penny throughout the United King dom. And that was at a time within the memory of some men still living, only 71 years ago. Despite Lord Lich field's condemnation of it, the scheme i was within three years an established I fact. And men who In their childhood ! might have seen and read the first let ters ever sent from one part of Kng land to another for a penny may this year see and read letters sent around the globe and practically to every part of the Kngllsh speaking world for the same small fee. The achievement will be not only a most Impressive rebuke of l the short-sighted nnd timorous admin ' Istrator of two generations ago, but also an equally impressive demonstra tion of the constantly ucceleratlng progress of civilization. Humor and Health. There is nothing like a sense of humor to keep one in good health, Bays a medical contemporary, but It would be well had we been told at the samo time how this excellent gift Is to be acqulrod. Could anything be more tantalizing than to know how to cure oneself and yet bo unable to grasp ut the means? Lady's Pictorial. Had You Thought of It?

The term "Internal revenue" hns been restricted In Its meaning to such revenues only as are collected under the internal revenue bureau connected L with the treasury department, and does not Include all revenues thnt are, properly speaking, from Internal sources: that Is, from sources other than dt!t'i levied at the frontiers upon foreign commodities. Thus, moneys arising from (he sale of pub lic lands, from patent fees, or the reve nues of the postal service, are not generally known as "Internal revenues." When Men Wore Wigs. When they begin to talk about tariff It Is Interesting to look back over the paes of history and see what things were at one time considered necessl ties. In the time of Sir William Pitt It was considered highly Improper for a man to appear without his hair pow dered, so Pitt put a lax on the powder, I ho guinea pig tax as it was cnlled. In consequence, the Whigs cut off tholr queues and only men servants were allowed hair powder. It was finally so nnremuneratlve that the tax was removed. Duty. The greatest thing In the world, the Inspiration of life, the holiest and noblest of all words, is Duty. It Is obedience, glnd and eager, to the high- f est law that makes man godlike. Is it cold and austere? Then a mother's love Is wintry and forbidding. Is it timid and inactive? Then the soldier dying on the battlefield m a recreant and a coward. The fire fighter, perish ing In the flames, falls In the cause of duty. The nurse of lepers, the helper of outcasts, the martyr falling that men may rise, dying that many may live, give up the precious light of day for duty's sake. Itabhl Leon Harrison.

PEMBROKE STATIONERY CO., Salt Last City. Love. Love Is the on4y bow on life's dark cloud. It Is the morning and evening star. It shines on the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb. It is the mother of art; Insplrer of poet, patriot and philosopher. It Is the air and light of every heart; build er of every home; kind let of every fire on the hearth; It was the first dress of Immortality. It flllB the world with melody, for music Is the voice of love. Love is the magician, the en chanter that changes worthless things to Joy, and makes right royal queens and kings of common clay. It is the perfume of that wonderful flower, the heart, and without that sacred pas sion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts; but with It earth Is heaven and we are gods. Robert Q. Ingersoll.
