"Yes." It was entirely good tem pered. Therefore the other voice be came crosser. "What's the use primping two hours for that mere nobody of a Filiberto?" "To be sure, what is the use?" Cam dida's good temper was maddening. Her mother was at the remote end of the house, but she could see mentally the smiling, tantalizing face that she knew so well. Candida's mirror smlldd back at her. It was a tiny mirror with a shabby frame, but it held the loveliest and most famous picture in all Alta Cali fornia. The portrait was that of a sixteen-year-old girl, strongly built and exquisitely rounded, as those Castilian girls of old California were the com plexion a pure Castilian olive without a tinge of rose; the eyes a sparkling, vivid black; the hair as black as the eyes, a splendid mass coiled high and caught with a comb. "Ah, but it is of use, even if Filiber to is a mere nobody. What do you think, lovely senorita?" she said to the face in the mirror. The face laughed back at her. Candles were fastened to the wall oh each side of the mirror, so that a strong light was thrown on the faee therein. Candida could watch it to good advantage as it grew lovelier un der her skillful touch. A lock of hair did not suit her. She brushed it, pulled it, unfastened it, re- fastened it, "finally pulled down the whole mass of hair in a heap and be gan coiling it all over from the begin ning. "You're the slowest of all my girls," fretted her mother in the dining room It made no difference to her whether Candida was slow or not on this occa sion, but she Avas out or sorts witn all the world. She had expected that the comaudante would invite her daugh ter to accompany him to the fandango tonight. She had watched in vain for the message. She saw her match making blighted after being brought to a critical point. "Where's the girl?" growled a ter rific voice. It was that of her husband "She's dressing." "What for, when she's going with nobody but Yorba? She had as well wear her working gown." "Ah, Dios after all our hopes!" Senora Barrajas wrung her fat hands "It's of no avail to whimper about it The girl's been a fool, you may count on that, no matter what she says She's done something to annoy the comaudante it's like her. Stubborn as her mother. She will reap as she sows." . "My stubbornness made me marry you," put in the senora. "And you got better than you ever deserved." He strode out of the room grumbling like a thuuderstonm. Candida, adjusting her comb, heard it all and smiled. "Ah, madre mia, how blind you are in spite of your lynx eyes," she said a ad took a note from her bosom. "Contrary to custom, I send this to you instead of to your mother," she reread with satisfaction. "For it is your answer I desire. Will you accom pany me to the fandango? If not I shall go to Santa Barbara on business, for the fandango without you would hold no charms." Below was what any girl in Califor nia would have given her black eyes for the signature of the popular co mandante. No member of the family had seen the messenger ride up and deliver this note to Candida. Nor had any one seen her send back her answer which read: "I must beg to be excused from this fandango, for my ankle is still weak since Pero threw me, and I dare not risk a dance." Nor did any one know that she sent another message to a certain "nobody." "The coast is clear. The eoman dante is going to Santa Barbara, so he will never know that I go to the dance. Father will let me go with you for the once, for he thinks I have no other in vitation." Candida's conscience shook off fibs as a duck shakes off water. There was not a cloud on her brow as she made herself lovely for the ball. Her father had given a grumbling "yes" to Fili berto' a invitation. He had refused over and over to let the girl accompany this young man, whose fault was pov erty, but now pique played its part, and as he realized that the coman dante was not Inviting Candida after all his promising attentions he re solved that she should not be left at home. "I don't care; take her to the dance if you want to," he said to Filiberto Yorba. Then he went off muttering curses on the head of the coman dante. They had gambled together many a time, and they had lain side by side in their cups when the aguardi ente was plenty. "Now the man is Jilting my daughter, is he?" Candida tucked the note in her bos om again. It would be fun to show it to Filiberto when they had a little time alone. "Tell Filiberto I'll be ready in rt minute," she called as she heard the light hoofs of Mia. She moved the comb to the other side, then back to its original position Behind her ear she fastened a great crimson rose. "You are lovelier than ever," Fili berto whispered as she gave him a glimpse of the picture she was. Then tuie uu-ew a white mantilla over ner head and shoulders, her face and the rose peeping out from the snowy lace. "Good evening, Mia," she said, pat ting the little horse's nose. It gave a happy whinny, for it knew Candida. Her father and mother came from the house and said a surly good even ing to the handsome young Spaniard. To them he was entirely objectionable in that he had no property; no influ ential father, nothing but his own cleverness and courage to depend up on, b urtnermore, they strongly sus pected , their daughter of preferring him to the shrewd old political fox to whom they were trying to marry her. "Permit me to thank you both for intrusting your daughter to my care tonight," he said blithely in spite of the frowns that greeted him. Candida patted the restless pony again. "Are you In a hurry, Mia? she said. "Come, Filiberto, we must start. Mia says she will not wait." The girl put her little red slippered foot into the stirrup. Filiberto helped her as she sprang, and she was perch ed aloft in the gala day saddle, all carved and besilvered. With a bow to the old people he sprang up behind her. as was thie Californian custom. He reached forward to adjust the reins. Mia fumed to be off. But the word had not been given when a clat ter of hoofs sounded beyond the house. All turned to see who the arrival was. The hoofs clattered more sharp ly as the gallop slowed. Up rode the comandante. At the sight of Candida about to ride away he turned white with anger, as his way was. "Ah, senorita, may I inquire who your physician may be that your ankle heals so quickly?" The father and mother stood silent, looking from one to the other. Sus picion, fear, rage, were creeping upon them. It was no time to parry, the girl knew. "There Is but one physician who can heal every hurt," she replied. "He is love. I am in his charge. Off, Mia." And the pony was away with them. "You mean it?" said Filiberto. She only tossed him a teasing laugh now. "How Mia flies!" she said, dodging his question. "There are the lights of the fandango." Far away glittered the brilliant lights in a great rancft house. Sudden ly the road divided. At the end of one branch were the lights of the gay ball; at the end of the other, one lamp shone from the mission. "Listen!" said Filiberto and stopped the horse. A strange blending of sounds came to their ears; guitar and violin sounded faintly from the left; from the right came the faraway chime of the mission bell. "To the left lies the dance," he said slowly. "After it borne again, a storm of wrath, you and I separate forever." "Yes," she said, the merriment gone out of ber eyes. "To the right," he went on, "Father Juan, our old priest and friend. He knows us and loves us. He will marry us tonight." "Oh!" she cried with a little shud der. "Shall it not be the right road?" "Oh I'm afraid I eau't" "Say the right." Ske hesitated, perplexed. Then she ocied: "1 know, I'll let Mia deckle. We shall see which way she chooses." She pushed his hands from the reins, drew Mia to the middle of the fork and stopped her. "Now go, Mia," she said. The horse flung up her head and gal loped into the dark road on the right. "Mia, you shall feed upon sugar lumps for the rest of your life," Fili berto said. It was not for many years that Can dida made a confession to her hus btind. "I tweaked the right rein," she owned then. "I was , so afraid Mia might make a mistake." THE bnNANA. Fruit Tlint Alpen on tlte Plant la Not Suitable For Food. There is a vast amount of ignorance prevailing among Intelligent people of the north concer.n!ng the growth, pro duction and marketing of bananas. Many people imagine that the natives In tropical climes step out of their huts in the early morning and pluck and eat bananas from the plant, the same as they would orange3 and other fruits. Bananas ripened on the plant are not suitable for food v and would be much the same as the pith which is found in the northern cornstalk or elder. Ba nanas sold in the United States, even after traveling 3,000 miles in a green state, are every bit as good as bananas ripened under a tropical sun. This is probably true of no other export f rult. The plant of which bananas is the fruit is not a tree, nor is It a bush or vine. It is simply a gigantic plant, growing to a height of from fifteen to twenty feet. About eighteen feet from the ground the leaves, ofttimes eight feet long, come out in a short cluster, from tiie center cr wuicu springs a bunch of bananas. These do not grow with the bananas pointing upward nat urally, and if the stem grew straight they would hang exactly as seen in the fruit stores and grocers' windows. This, however, is not the case. The stem bends under the weight of the fruit, and this brings it into directly the opposite direction, with the largo end of the stalk up and the fringes pointing toward the sun. A word of explanation concerning some banana terms. Each banana is called a "finger," and each of these lit tle clusters of fingois surrounding a stalk is called a "hand." The quality and value of each bunch depend on the number of . hands it has. Some may wonder how the fruit is cut from the top of a plant fifteen feet from the ground. The native laborers cut the stalk part witfr up its height. The weight of the fruit causes the stalk to slowly bend over until the bunch of bananas first nicely readies the ground; then the bunch is cut off with the ever ready machete and carried to the river or railroad for shipment. The plant at the same time is cut close to the ground. The banana is a very prolific producer of itself, and at every cleaning of the land it is necessary to cut down many of the young plants, or "suckers," as they are termed, in order that they may not become overcrowded up to a certain limit. The fewer suckers on a given area the larger the fruit they will pro duce. Chicago Chronicle. X Sued by His Doetor.

The Kind You Have Always Bought Willing to Repeat. The office boy to a large firm of pub lishers was a smart lad, and when he was sent to one of the operative de partments with a message he noticed at once that something was wrong with the machinery. He returned, gave the alarm and thus prevented much damage. The circumstance was reported to the head of the firm, be fore whom John was summoned. "You have done me a great service, my lad," he said. "In future your wages will be increased $1 weekly." "Thank you, sir," said the bright lit tie fellow. "I will do my best to be worth It and to be a good servant to you." The reply struck the chief almost as much as the lad's previous service had done. "That's the right spirit, my lad," he said. "In all the years I have been in business no one has ever thanked me in that way. I will make the increase $2. Nov, what do you say to that?"
