Glorification E all wondered how he could be a military man. be was so Tonne, so aristocratic In man ners, such a dandy, too and to call blm "Colonel!" It was Incomprehensible. At the first opportunity I spoke to Miss Catherwood a boat rt. She looked at me quizzically for a moment, then burst Into a fit of laughter. "I'm in earnest" I said, "explain the mystery." "But yon are In the South, now. yoa know." "I did not know it was a question of. I geography," I rejoined, somewhat se verely. "I supposed it was a question of war, that colonels were soldiers, and grownup men at that" "Col. Whltmore would hardly enjoy your remarks, I am afraid." " 'Colonel' there it Is again! My dear Miss Catberwool, is be really a colonel?" "A sort of one, by breTet of South ern politeness, down here, yon know, a man may become a colonel in several ways. In the first place he is called oolouel when he is a fine-looking old gentleman with white hair, and a some what threadbare Prince Albert coat tsut in me latter case ne rnns some chance of being called general. On the i other hand, if be is young but of good family, fine appearance and manners, and has occe commanded a local mili tary company, he is also designated as colonel. Col. Whltmore Is of the latter class, but hushi here he conies now." She pointed over across tbe lawn where the "colonel" was to be seen promenading towards the hotel with Mrs. O'Hara, widow . of "GnMliMJ"5"Mtenr rt was a delicious evening. jO'Hara. rMw'ple-aaid-To'triiB day I ' don't know whothor Hon nH.ro -r. ! matter. As the colonel cam i T , viewed him somewhat more closely in ' the light of Miss Catherwood's infor- mation, and really I could not help laughlng-he was such a grotesque fig-; ure. He might have been 30 years old, j not any older, but walked with the i pomposity of a sedate oldman who had tnnlii n croat morV In tho nrnrll II. was rather heavy set, and wore a flow ered waistcoat I Judged he was near sighted, for he walked with a lean to one side, as if slightly out of balance, I twisting his neck for better vision. lie . wore light flannel trousers turned up 1 from a pair of handsome brown shoes and a yachting cap. He was so much interested in one of his "inimitable" the word Is Mrs. O'Hara's not mine stories that he hardly noticed us on the veranda. But poor man, I don't think he could see us very well. At any rate he did not halt in his narrative. "I Insisted," he was saying, "that I was an American citi zen from the State of Virginia, but the police would not hear to me and I was hustled off to Jail, without opportunity to prove my Identity. However, I bribed the guard to carry my card with the one word 'Help? on it to onr am bassador and that same night he came over in person and secured my release. The matter threatened to sever the hitherto amicable relations existing be tween the two countries, but It was finally settled by paying me an Indem nity." "What an exciting experience, col onel," said Mrs. O'Hara, solicitously. "O. a mere bagatelle. I assure you. One who has traveled as much as I have learns to put up with such trifling annoyances." "I think I must go now," said Mrs. O'Hara, rising. "I hope we may have many more such pleasant walks." She rustled away and the colonel, lifting his cap, bowed low, at tbe same time lay ing his disengaged hand upon his heart When Mrs. O'Hara went tbe eolonei turned to Miss Catherwood with a gra cious salutation. He looked at me somewhat hesitatingly and I said, turning to my companion: "I don't think I've had the pleasure of being formally introduced to Col. Whlt more." Miss Catherwood smiled. "Cot Whltmore, allow me to present Mr. Montgomery to you, one of those sus picious newspaper men from New York." Again the colonel made a sweeping bow and then sat down by us. "A fine day," said Miss Catherwood. I shall always think the question was addressed to me, but the colonel an swered It "A superb day, a day when the soul of man expands and luxuriates in tbe midst of nature's charms. It reminds me of days in the Riviera or ln the Taunton valley In Virginia. Upon my estate one has " But I interrupted. "A landowner, colonel? I congratulate you." "In a mild way. Some paltry hun dreds of acres In the garden of Vir ginia, sir; but what is land compared to power, intellectual Influence? Why. sir. If I were not so engrossed by my landed Interests I should repair to some metropolis and give my services over to the press. The Journalist Is the man of-4nfluence to-day, sir." I was on the point of trying to say something to discourage him .from "this notion when dinner was- announced, and wp Uft the veranda. Toe colonel aad 1 bowed chtTalroaaly to aad at taa door of tbe dinlng-reeai parted. Tksvt evening I took a strati peon, the manager of the hotel waa an old friend. Aa we we fell to discussing Wbltmore. "a moat egregious liar," t my companion. "How so! Ton surprise me." "Why, haven't yon .heard him talk Half of his so-called real are par inventions. Only he told me about being arrested hi. Germany for leas majeate." "I think he was telling Mrs. O'Hara the same thing to-day." "Tea, weB, I knew positively he never waa in Europe In his life." "Ton float say so!" "And as for those hundreds of acres In the garden of Virginia,' I happen to know he doesn't own a foot of land. He's a big liar, but at the same time a delightful guest. I like to have him here "he's a capital hand at entertain ment and very obliging." "And a colonel." I added, malicious ly. "Colonel by the grace of God," re marked tbe landlord. Irreverently, "but he likes the title, and I confess It seems to fit him." Several weeks went by. Guests cam, and went at the hotel, but the colonel, Miss Catherwood' and Mrs. O'Hara re mained. Mra. O'Hara Hked the rest- 'MABBT TOU, COL. WBITMOBK! fulness of the mountains. Miss Cath erwood liked Mrs. O'Hara. and the col onel, welt at first we would not be lieve It but finally we had to. the col onel liked Miss Catherwood. For a time we all thought It was his Vir ginia courtliness that made his atten tions to ber look like devotion, but at last we voted he was In love, deeply; hopelessly In love. We felt sorry for him, of course. He haunted Miss Cath- ' erwood constantly, strolled with her. ) rowed with her, played golf with her. ' and carried her books and wraps around like a stare. He even became more of a liar for her sake. Europe was drawn on daily to furnish start ling experiences, and Taunton valley, "the garden of Virginia," became a paradise, an elysium, with his broad acres in the midst of It We all felt sorry for Miss Cather wood, too, we thought It must be rath er unpleasant for ber to hare so much Poniposlty, mendacity and rotundity in tow all the time, but we could no noth ing. The colonel hovered around her with feverish anxiety whenever we tried to rescue her, and at last we gave It up. If she wouldn't kill him off. why should we? ' ' - One night I strolled down to a seat at the bottom of the lawn, where ! la tended to watch the- moon rise over witn JU8t enusn lor In the air to make one lament that vacations did ' not last forever, an evening when one I aii. . . . lan somuae. .a i sai pensively azin across the-valley toward the' dl8t,t gorge, which was gradually lShtln' "P wlth the nret J of the moon' 1 becme aware of voices near n,e' Myst was screened off by a c,UInP of bushes from the rest of the ,awn and ln my m"sIng8 8ome one ha5 muru iruKBtrssiuu Ol luuiwr wura close by. At first I paid no attention to tbe voices, but suddenly my Inter est was aroused. "Marry you. Col. Whltmore! Ton surprise me." The reply was inaudible, but fervent, and some mlnnios passed before I heard Miss Catherwood's voice again. 1 "I am sorry. Col. Whltmore, very sorry. Indeed, but I didn't suppose ' your gallant devotion to me would lead you to marry me. I really do like yon very well, but not In tbe way you de sire. You have been kind and enter taining, and all that have made my little sojourn here pass pleasantly and I'm very grateful to you, I'm sure; but marry you what an Idea!" I confess I rwgan to feel sorry for the colonel, she had such an airy, easy way of dispatching a fellow without mercy. Again he made some Impas sioned answer which I could not un derstand. Miss Catherwood greeted It with a ripple of laughter, yes, she ac tually laughed. "I don't know but I might as well tell you, colonel, why I would not mar ry you your remark about the Whlt more estate Just now leads me to. Don't yon know there Is no Whltmore estate? There may be a 'garden of Virginia, sir,' with an Imitation of poor Whitmore's pronunciation, "bnt there are no broad acres ln It that yon own. And then all your talk about Europe, your experiences in Russia, your gam bling at Monte Carlo, your arrest in Germany that's all very amusing as fiction, but It has no foundation in fact" She paused as the colonel tried to stammer out a reply. Then she went on: "And your pompous lordliness, your affected manners, even your title of colonel, as nicely as It fits yon, annoy me. Ton are not a real man; yon are a sort of summer man, created for re sort places and lonely spinsters or widows," she added, probably allud ing to Mrs. O'Hara. "I want a man to fall in love with me, and when I marry I'll marry a man. Come now, colonel, don't be mad at me" I caught the sound of a swear word "I may seem severe but a woman has Ideals like men, and It's bard to see them humbled or de stroyed. We'll be friends, though. Just tbe same, colonel, and you may lay my beartlessness to the fact that I am almost 30 years old, and cross and ugly." She tripped away toward the house, and left the poor colonel wilted as a leaf. I felt sorry for him, upon my word I did, especially when I heard him sob. If s so pathetic when a man breaks down and sobs. The next day Miss Catherwood and Ml t. O'Hara left the hotel and before the week was over the rest of us had gone. When the next summer came I was with tbe other newspaper men with our army before Santiago. Frequently on some of those hot days I thought of the mountains up north, and the ho tel, and once or twice : 1 actually thought of Whltmore.. but when I did I. laughed, for he did not very .much resemble the soldiers I saWarewad Baa I fancied hi. namby-pamby man- not hold oat long against nfln, saeal, fever and poor food. - One) day I made a ' discovery that brought back the hotel very vividly Miss Catherwood was a nurse of the Held hospitals, and the said a very valuable one. I atr once or twice, on my way headquarters and tbe front and chatter with her for a moment I waa ashamed of it but every time I saw her I could, not help thinking of Whltmore and tbe way she bad flayed him alive. Xo wonder she relished this army life, wittf plenty of men dead and. gtm vtatted I dying. her own little room, and fast asleep. Then came one of those bloody days j Jhe had wanted very badly Indeed to when our lines were tightening in a(:tay up and see her cousins from Call death grip on Santiago. It was warornla. bat mother bad said, "No, Eva, with a vengeance and tbe 'hospitals t will be late when father brings were getting their quota faet As I hem. and they ' are. sure to be very made my way through the Jungle to- ired. so as soon as ever they have had ward our firing line I had to pass the Hmething to eat I shall see rhem tack hospltal tent I looked in a moment id up In bed, poor little souls.

" ..J, As I stood there a Red Cross man Eva was up early the next morning, and a soldier brought in a man on a . 'or she was very anxious to see ber litter. ."He's my captain," I heard the sol- dier say to Miss Catherwood, who met them, "and he's a regular devil. Why, he led us men right through that scrub and barb wire, and up tbe slope, the j outlets plugging arouna use nan. ana at the top ef tbe hill they knocked him over, but be got up and swore, and yelled, and went In again. I saw him shoot a Spaniard not twenty feet from the blockhouse. And then he went ! over again." i Miss Catherwood did not pay much , attention to the man, stories of such ! valor were common enough. But the soldier had to talk to some one about his captain, so he turned to me. j "After we carried him back to the , rear he wouldn't let the surgeons ! touch him till they'd cut and sawed all , the other fellows who needed It worse ', than be did. Just lay there In the hot j snn and let the flies buzz over blm and f never a word. He s a perreet devil of a man to fight." Tbe assistants lifted tbe wounded man on to a cot, and turned to izn. Just then he opened bis eyes in a wild way, and in bis delirium started to swear. I think, but caught sight of the nurse and stopped. Hearing him say something. Miss Catherwood came to ward blm. Close to tbe cot she stop ped, moaned, held out ber hands, then knelt down by him. "O Colonel Whltmore, my colonel." she cried.

It was such a one I caught up with one morning in June along the ridge of the Cumberlands. "I'm looking for a place," f saio. after a few preliminaries, "where I can stop for a week or so while I look up some timber I have in this neighbor hood. Do you know of any?" "There ain't much uv that sort eround here." he replied, "exceptln' you go ter Mt Pleasant an I reckon that's too fer.

"Is it a pretty good place?" I In quired, thoughtlessly. The young man's face flushed. "Well, I reckon," he said, with some emphasis; "she's goin' to be my mother-in-law. come next Septeniler." .- "Oh, I beg your pardon." I hastened to explain. "I only asked to know if she had good eating. Some of that we get in private houses, even In the cities, you know, is not the best in the world." "Cities be derned," he said, with h fine feeling; "yer ain't never tried the Widder Tackett's pie yet, mister, an' yer want to keep still till yer do. Ain't nothin' like it nowhere, no matter what kind uv a pie she sets afore yer. It's all ne pluslbus unum. an' no mistake..

Fastidiousness in Food. It may be doubted whether we do not lose much from the gastronomic point of view by our overfastidlousncss In eating, says St. Nicholas. One who has recently experimented upon tbe flesh of strange animals says that crocodile, though testing somewhat of musk, is yet far from unsavory meat Elephant foot is a delicacy well known to African travelers, and the flesh of lions Is said to taste well, differing therein from thai of the tiger, which is drv and full of nerves. The rhinoceros Is said to furnish a sort of cross between pork and beef, j while all are agreed that the monkey i is capital eating and better than tbe ' best rabbit Tbe opossum and tbe Kangaroo oniy require to ue Known to be appreciated, while the flesh of the seat though rather dark. Is exceedingly nutritious, and, above all, very digest ible.

While this might have. been consid ered an advantage by some people. It was not pleasing to Mr. Smith, who is an essentially modest man and averse to being made unduly prominent on any occasion. It is said, too, that , his baldness was the. real cause of his starting out in search of gold, since he spent all his patrimony in the pur chase of hair restorers, and it was nec essary for . him to do something, no matter how desperate, to retrieve his fallen fortunes. . Be that as It may, he went to Alaska, and after a two years' residence there, has returned a modern Sampson, as far as chevalnre is concerned, and' he declares that the transformation is en tirely due to tbe rigors of the "climate ln that quarter of tbe globe. "The Intense cold kills all germs and microbes,'' he asserts, "and stimulates the scalp and nature does the rest," snd' be proudly exhibits bis Uon-like mane as. proof of what nature can do when she takes a fancy, unassisted by washes or oils or unguents of any kind. P. J. McLeod, who has spent twelve years in Alaska and the Northwest, corroborates his story as to the virtues of that frigid clime as a hair producer. "My hair was always thick." be says, "so I cannot speak from .personal ex perience, but tbe way dogs put on hair up there Is a caution. They;' get as shaggy as Shetland ponies, and now I think of It. I never saw a bald-beaded . fellow anywhere around there. To tell the truth they all look, after they have got -to work, as though a razor and a pair of scissors were far more needed than a hair restorer, and I think a mis sionary barber could do good work among them.''

"Is there anything you wish attended to before you pass away?' "Yes," answered the stricken man, ln faint, yet eager, tones. "I am glad you spoke of It. Send for the barber at once and have him shave' me before I die. I only, have to pay him 50 cents for coming ln to shave me now, and the regular price is $1 for shaving a dead man.
