"Dolllo!" crlci Mndam, sharply.
Dld you hear? Miss Hayes Is wait
ing to have nor wedding dress fitted.
Didn't 1 tell you to watch for her nd
V attend to It. Aro you asleep?"
M ) "Yes, mam no, mam; I mean, t
H t will attend to It. 1 I did not hoar,
m ' Madam, I 1 beg pardon," nnd tho girl
mL sprang to her feet, Hushed and trom-
Wing, gathered Into her arms tho
H priceless gown ot tho heiress and
H vanished through tho door leading
I Into tho dressing rooms.
Hi Thcro was a snicker from the other
girls and an angry snort from Mndam.
H "I don't know what's coming over
Hf Miss Culver." bIio exclaimed. "Sho
seems to ho )n u trance."
W In tho mcantlmo tho pretty blue
H yed girl with tho pink cheeks that
-were tho envy of all the great dreus-
i making shop of Mndam Gervnls, had
H disappeared through tho door of tho
Hi -work-room and emerged Into a dainty
H, dressing-room, where awaited a
- haughty damsel with flashing orbs of
, tho deepest brown and the regal flguro
ft of a born queen. This was Florenco
P Hayes, easily tho bcllo of all tho city
H nnd tho greatest heiress as well
M superb young woman, with all tho hau
B teur ot tho born aristocrat added to
M feat'ircs and form and carrlago of a
M beauty of nature. Sho had reigned
H. long and with a high hand, but at
Hi last had Fjccumbod to the ardent
M, court ot Howard Dunton and tho wed
V ding da had been set and prepara
R tlons tvete In progress for tho cere
K mony hlch was to bo by far tho
B most pretentious affair tho town had
"- " ver seen.
H Dunton was young, ardent, and ot
H.. acknowledged ability, already a power
H' at the bar and In politics; not of
B L.s known family nor fortuno but dls
Jj ' tlnctly ono of tho coming men of tho
H Tilaco and recognized as ono ot tho
H nr-st deslrablo catches. It was, In
H sooth, a model match, and society
B reveled In It.
H , Tho work of fitting tho wedding
B, .garment was soon In full operation.
W There was all tho pulling and haul-
K, lng, ripping and pinning and smooth-
Vi' lng and tucking so necessnry to a
H successful gown nnd finally all was
B t as it should bo and the two women
H tho heiress with her cold and claasl-
H cal faco traced with lines of prldo
H nnd hauteur, and tho round-faced llttlo
H dressmaker with her voluptuous fig-
H. uro and her slmplo, trusting counto-
H' nance faced each other, tho task fin-
H And then a strango thing occurred.
H "Without tho sign of n warning tho
H llttlo dressmaker stepped forward, tho
H lost color blazing In her check and
H grasping both hands In tho (limy laces
H In tho front of tho prlcoloss gown tore
H out two great hands full.
H "Your wedding gown," sho BCrenmed
H hysterically. "Your wedding gown.
H .You shall not wear It. I)o you hear,
H 5 oti ahnll not wear It. Yoti havo no
VM right In tho sight of God, you havo
H so right. Tho law and tho priest may

H I to him. Of courso ho cannot marry
Hl mo I am not of his world nil I can
H do Is to lovo him and bo loved some
H doll horn with a gold spoon In her
H Tiiouth must bonr his namo," and then
H tUa girl laughed a long and ghnstly
B laugh. Then clenching hor hands:
H "Yen, you can bear hta nnmo, hut

and 1 nm his. All you can do Is to
rldo In his carriages nnd live In his
housD and hear his name. Much Joy
to you," and tho girl laughed and
cried hysterically as sho stamped her
pretty feet on tho carpet.
Tho faco of tho other woman was a
drama during this tirade. With tho
solf-posscsslon of the born aristocrat
sho maintained her entire dignity and
Kulf-posscs8lon; but It was evident
from tho first how strongly s'ao was
moved and how deeply sho was
shocked. When tho dressmaker
paused for breath sho stepped for
ward and laid hor hand Imperiously
upon DolIIo's shoulder.
"Is this true?" sio demanded In a
voleo so Intense as to awo tho girl.
"I must know tho truth. Do not trlllo
with me. If you toll tho truth I will
bo tho best friend you over had. If
you are merely after money ou can

"My God, Florence, what does this
mean!" exclaimed the groom aghast.
havo all you want only If you tell
mo tho truth. But do not attempt to
trlflo with me. I will not stand It
and I warn you for your own good."
Sho paused, and tho other woman
mot her eyes without flinching.
"I toll you tho truth," sho said
simply. "I want no money. All I
want Is htm Howard. 1 am not hero
testifying to my shamo for money.
I do not need money why, ho gives
mo enough money to keep mo from
that. But It Is not his money that
I want It is him. I lovo him yes,
I do I lovo him a thousand times
better than you or an other woman
knows how and you aro going to
steal him from mo." Sho sank on
her knees nnd burled her faco In
a sofa thon rose suddenly and fierce
ly nnd went on: "No. you aro not.
You cannot. 1 will wnlt nnd watch
yes, nnd pray, and I will keep him,
I know I will. You will havo all tho
honor and tho namo and r-ldo, hut
I will havo him see It I don't him
and his lovo. You will havo tho
husks and I tho Kernel."
"Wnlt, girl," cried tho other flerco
ly, forgetting her position, hor dignity
overytning but tho words of tho
woman before hor. "Listen to mo."
And sho grasped hor arm so fiercely
that Dolllo winced. "Provo to mo
what you say and I will do for you
what you never can do for yourself.
I will ho tho best friend you over
A few moments later tho two
womon left the placo togethor and
rotln away In tho magnificent equip
agu of Miss Hayes.
Never had there been such a gor
geous wedding scene In tho social
annals ot tho city. Tho church was
crowded with the fashion, beauty and
chlvnlry of tho most excluslvo circles.
Tho llornl decorations were something
marvellous; tho coHtumes beyond
oven tho female society reporter. At
tho appointed hour tho groom stepped
from tho room assigned to him, ac
companied by his best man, and
moved toward tho nltnr, Just as tho
bride, arrayed only na wealth enn
array its favorites, moved up tho alslo
preceded by a pretty Mower girl and
followed by a splendid array ot brides
maids, all vollod. They mot at tho
altar and tho ceremony began. Tho
great audlenco craned its collective
neck to hear tho responses.
'Do you, Florenco, tako this man
to bo your weddod husband, to elenvo
unto him, forsaking all others, to
love, honor and obey him until death
you do part?" read tho clorgyman
solemnly li- his most sonorous voke.
Ha patife'n nnd comfortably awaltodN
thd response. '
Then came tho crash from tho clear
"No. I do not," replied tho woman j
nt tSo nltar In n clenr, tenso tone,
throwing aside her veil and disclosing
a faco of ashen coier strangely set.
"God help mo, I ennnot. 1"
"My God, Florence, what does this
nanl" exclaimed tho groom aghast
"Silence," commanded thi votnan,
turning upon htm with flnsnlng cyo.
"I will not because I cannot In tho
sight of God and man. I will not
and ennnot bemuse this man belongs
to another to a girl whom ho has
doccUed and Intended to betray. But,
good friends, ou will not bo chentod
of tho wedding you catno to soo. Tho
bride tho rral bride Is bore, and
tho ceremony will go on," and with
an lmpcrluus gosturo sho motioned
forward Dolllo Culver from her brides
maids, lifted tho veil from her fright
ened faco and, turning to tho clergy
"Proceed, sir, tho brldo nnd tho
bridegroom nio ready."
Tho reverend father caught tho
poetic Justlco of tho occasion and
sternly begnn tho scrvlco over again.
Tho Btanlcd groom, unnblo to gather
together 1 Is scattered senses, mum
bled along tho responses nnd In n
trlco tho closing words wero spoken
and tho Four Hundred wero making
their way to tho door nmld a rattlo

FIND FEW WOMEN STOWAWAYS.
Rare Cases Involving Members of the
Womon stowaways arc very rare
On Sept. S. 1001, ono was found on tho
Neptune Hue steamer Ohio, which
sailed that day from Baltimore, for
ltottordnm. Cnpt. Samuel Wilson, who
commanded tho Ohio, Intended send
ing her back on tho pilot boat with
Pilot William Carroll, but as It might
havo cost tho woman her llfo If sho
had been forced to tako to tho boat,
tho weather being so severe at tho
time, sho was allowed to remain.
A woman disguised us n man shipped
as a "cattleman" on tho Johnston
steamer Vedamoro sovoral years ago,
when tho late Robert Bartlett was In
command. Her sex was discovered
before the blilp reached tho Bristol
channel, and Capt. Bnrtlctt had hor
placed in security until Liverpool was
reached. She smoked cigarettes, play
ed cards and had the record heforo be

tlo better than any ono of tho men
who had shipped to perform tho same
Heccntly In New York Louisa Shal
ler was found among tho steerage pas
sengers of tho North German Lloyd
steamer Kaiser Wllhelm dor Grosse.
Sho was not a stowaway, but mixed
up with tho Immigrants before tho
ship left Bremen and reached Now
York. Sho said her son was a pas
senger on tho steamer, and sho could
not bear to havo hlra leave without
hor, and Bhe had not tho money to
pay her passage. She was allowed to
land by tho Immigrant officials.

solution of tho problem. It bolloves
thnt a definite trust policy Is tho need
of tho hour, nnd thnt now legislation

should new legislation bo directed?
Hero Is tho answer:
"1. Protect competition as tho most
cffoctlvo proventivo of monopoly.
"2. Iteduco tho tariff to a moderate
revenuo basts, especially on products
domlunted by largo corporations.
"3. Itcform state corporation Inws

Klght of theso plnnks will ho nc
ccptablo to all reasonable, progres
sive and publle-splrlted citizens,
though wo aro bound to point out that
plank 1 Is lndeflnlto nnd plnnk S a
repetition or reaffirmation of tho first.
Tho principle, however, Is thoroughly
sound. Let Socialists say what they
p.easo about tho talluro of competi
tion. Kxcept In tho sphcro ot natural
monopoly, ot tho so-callc 1 "public
utilities," competition, actual or po
tential, Is utlll "tho llfo of trade," tho

"Iteduco tho tariff to a moderato rov

tho first, and many of them will also
accept tho second of theso "doubtful"
planks. Protectionists of cither party
will Tinltimllv rililnpt tfi tint (lraf wlint.
will naturally object to tho first, what
over they muy think of tha second.
Tho "government supervision" plnnk
needs elaboration; It, may or may not
bo radical, and It may or may not
Involve n constitutional nmendment.
Boforo assenting or dissenting a bill
of particulars may bo required.
But tho example of our commorctnl

other Independent, non-polltlcal agen

proposals and outlines. Vnguo discus

Roosevelt and the Trusts,
it Is very well for tho Democrats to
make opposition to trusts their chief
Issuo for tho forthcoming Congres
