corvmn*r no* Sr sosst -rte Mum co. by MOLLY ELLIOT SEAWELL /LLUSTRAT/Om SY RAY WALTERS SYNOPSIS. At 14 years of age Admiral Sir Peter Hawksliaw's nephew, Richard Glyn, fell deeply In love at first si«ht with Rady Arabella Stormont, who spurned his at tentions. The lad. an orphan, was tilven u berth as midshipman on the Ajax by his uncle. Giles Vernon, nephew of Sir Thomas Vernon, became the boy’s pal. They attended a theater where Hawk shaw's nephew saw Rady Arabella. Ver non met Philip Ov-rton, next In line for <3lr Thomas Vernon's estate. They start ed a duel which was Interrupted. Vernon, Overton and Hawksliaw's nephew found themselves attracted by pretty Rndy Ara bella. The Ajax In battle defeated French warships in the Mediterranean. Richard Glyn got £2,000 prize money. He was called home by Lady Hawkshaw as lie was about to "blow In” Ids earnings with Vernon. At a Hawkshaw party Glyn dis covered that Rady Arabella was a poor but persistent Kumbler. lie talked much with her cousin Daphne, feud.v Arubella again showed love for gaming. Rater she held Glyn and Overton prisoners, thus delaying the duel. In the Overton-Ver non duel, neither was hurt. Rndy Ara bella humiliated Richard by her pranks. Richard and Giles shipped on a frigate. Giles was captured by the French. Sir ,Peter arranged for ills exchange. Daph xie showed a liking for Glyn. who was then 21 years of age. Giles was released. Giles and Richard planned elopements. Sir Peter objected to the plan to wed Daphne. CHAPTER Vlll.—Continued. This made me hope that Sir Peter Would not be present, for I thought our chances of getting off would ma terially improve if he were not on the spot. The piny was to lie over nt half-past ten. and It may be imagined that we had plenty to do until then. We en gaged four of the best pairs of nags In the town. We arranged to pay the :postboys according to the time they took us over the border, and we felt Jn ourselves the. strength of Titans, to overcome whatever resistance might be offered. Of course we counted on the surprise, and we determined that the best disposition to make of Lady Hawkshaw was for Giles Vernon to appear suddenly, when tho people were coming out, place Lady Hawk shaw in her coach, and then make that hold dash for love and beauty which we had determined upon. Our postboys, who were not new to the perils of elopements, grinned at the prospect, and were instructed to re main near Lady Hawkshaw’s coach and impede it as much as possible, so that it might he the last to reach the door of the theater. Our arrangements were complete by eight o’clock, and from that hour until ten we employed ourselves in dispos ing of a good supper at the tavern. We were in a gale of rapture then. It seemed to us both as if we were in that happy and exultant mood, when the enemy is within gun-shot and the ship is cleared for action; and we only awaited the signal for victory. We had some punch, but both Giles and myself knew enough to be ex ceedingly careful In attacking it. “Dicky, my lad," cried Giles, bang ing me in the back, “this day is the anniversary of the day we whipped the Indomptable and the Xantlppe!” and so It was. “So we shall capture the Indomptable, in the Lady Arabella, and we will disable the Xantippe—ha! ha! —in my Lady Hawkshaw.” This I thought a very flue Joke in deed. and we drank to It. “Dicky," began Giles again, wiping his mouth after the punch, “I never thought I could be constant to any woman, as I have been to Arabella. By heaven, the whole sex is so se ductive that it was the last one I saw I loved the best. But since I knew that witch of a girl, St. Anthony him self could not he more impervious to female charms than your humble serv ant," which was true enough. “And as for Overton —that psalm-singing devil —I defy him. Give me but a week, and he shall see Arabella hanging upon me so fondly! Let him have her £30,000; 'tis so much dirt and dross to me. And she may be Lady Vernon yet. Do you know that old rapscallion Sir Thomas Vernon's estate is In this part of the country? Though nearer York than Scarborough. On our re turn from our honeymoon I have a great mind to take my Arabella to Vernon Court and shdw her what may one day he hers.” So he raved and roared out snatches 1 Ike- In Bacchus' Joys I*ll freely roll. Deny no pleasure to my soul, Bacchus’ health ’round freely move; For Bacchus is the friend of love — And lie that will this toast deny. Down among the dead men let him lie.” And I took up the chorus and bawled it out;, for I, too, looked for no more crosses in this life, having Daph ne for my wife. So the time passed until ten o’clock; and at ten o’clock we sallied forth. It was a starlit night in early De cember. The cold high blue heavens above us seemed to radiate happiness; the myriad stars twinkled with joy; we scarce felt the ground under our feet. The two post-chaises awaited us on the highway, the postboys full of con fidence; the horses, the best in the town, were eager to be off. We jumped together in one, and were whirled into the town, and were at the door of the playhouse almost before we knew it. One of our postilions speedily found the coach which had brought Lady Hawkshaw there, and. in pursuance of his instructions, got the coachman off his box to drink in a neighboring tavern, while one of our postboys stood watch over the horses. Giles and I remained in the chaise until it was time for us to make our descent. At half-past ten the play was over, and then began that hurry and com motion of the dispersion of a crowd in the darkness. We heard loud shouts for Lady Hawkshaw’s coach, but the coachman did not make his appear ance. There were many officers and ladies from the garrison, and a num ber of equipages; but soon they were driving off, while half a dozen men at once were shouting for Lady Hawk shaw’s coach. At last my lady herself came out of the entrance, followed by Arabella and Daphne, and at that mo ment Giles slipped out of the chaise, and appeared before Lady Hawkshaw as If he had risen from the earth. I. “Rather Would I Die Than Marry Him.” too, was on the ground, but out of sight. “Pray, my lady,’’ said he, in his most gallant manner, and hat iu hand, "allow me to show you to your coach.” “Mr. Vernon!” cried Lady Hawk shaw, in surprise. “I thought you were In London. How came you to Scarborough?” "By chaise, madam,” he replied, po litely; "and I hope to see the young ladies before I leave” (the hypocrite!). "Is Sir Peter with you, madam?" “No, he is not," replied Lady Hawk shaw, her wrath rising at the idea. “Had he been with me my coach would have been awaiting me." And then turning to Arabella and Daphne, who were behind her, she said, sternly: "Arabella and Daphne, this does not happen again. Sir Peter comes with us to the play, after this.” I caught sight, from a corner be hind the chaise, of my dear Daphne, at that moment. She stopped sudden ly, and turned pale and then rosy, and glanced wildly about her. She knew I was not far off. How Arabella received Giles’ sud den appearance I never knew, as I could not see her. But in another mo ment he had placed Lady Hawkshaw, with the utmost obsequiousness, in the coach; then folding up the steps like magic, he slammed the door, and shouting to the coachman, “Drive on!” the coach rattled off, and the next mo ment his arm was around Arabella and mine was around Daphne, and they were swept off their feet; and in less time than it takes to tell it. each of us was wilh the idol of his heart, whirling off toward Gretna Green, as fast as four horses to. a light chaise could take us. Now, what think you, were Daphne's first words to me? “Unhand me, Mr. Glyn, or I’ll scream for assistance!” “My dearest one!” I exclaimed, “you are now mine. By to-morrow morning we shall be over the border, and you will be my wife.” “An elopement! Gracious heaven! I never thought of such a thing!” she replied. I might have answered that she had not only thought of such a thing, but talked of it. I refrained, however, knowing a woman's tongue to he ca pricious in its utterances, and, in stead, assured her that my passion was such I could no longer bear the thought of existing without her. “And do you mean to marry me, sir, without my guardian’s consent?’’ she asked, with much violence. “I do. Indeed, my angel, and I thought it was agreed between us.” This was an unfortunate speech, and she again threatened to scream for as sistance, but presently remarked that as there was none to come to her as sistance, she would refrain. And then, having done what propriety required, she began to relent a little, and at last lay in my arms, asking me, with tears, if I would promise her never to love another, and I told her, with great sincerity, that I never would, provided I got out of that alive. Deep in our own happiness—for at last the dear girl admitted that she was happy to he mine—we yet thought of Giles and Arabella, and I would have got out of the chaise at each of the three stages, where we made a rapid change of horses, except that Daphne would not let me —afraid, she said, lest I should be recognized and get into trouble. She afterward told me It was because she feared we might be stopped. We did not forget the precaution, in our brief halts, to pay the hostlers well to do some harm to any pursuing vehicles which might bo after us; and our plan seemed to be prospering famously. So all night we rattled furiously along, and at daybreak we crossed the border, notified by the huzzaing of the postboys. It was a dank, dismal morn ing, the weather having changed dur ing the night, and we saw that we had passed the other chaise in the darkness. It was some distance be hind, and the horses seemed much spent. We continued on our way to the house of a blacksmith at Gretna Green, who, ao our postboys told us, usually united runaway couples. We dashed up to his cottage—a humble place, surrounded by a willow hedge— and he. warned by approaching wheels. came out, half dressed, In the murky morning. “Come to be marrit?” he cried. “Step out, then.” I assisted Daphne out of the chaise, and then, as we stood on the damp ground, in those squalid surroundings, looking at each other, the possihlo wrong I had done this innocent girl suddenly swept over me. And In her eyes, too. I read the first conscious ness of having committed an Impro priety. This dirty, unkempt black smith, tho coarse, laughing postboys— this, away to make the most solemn and spiritual of all engagements! I felt an uncomfortable sense of guilt and shame. It was only momentary. The more depressed she, the more should I sup port, and therefore I called out cheer fully: “I take this woman to be my wedded wife,” and such other words as I recalled of the marriage service —and I said It so heartily and prom ised so devoutly, removing my hat when I made my vows, that it heart ened up Daphne—and her response, so full of faith and love, gave a kind of holiness to it all. We were two rash and foolish young people—but we loved each other truly, and we made our vows solemnly, determined to keep them. Perhaps that counts for more, in Jhe eyes of God. than ail else; at least, we realized the sacredness of our vows. Scarcely was the brief ceremony over —for ceremony we made It—when the chaise containing Arabella and Giles drew up. And the sight I saw, I can never forget. Arabella’s face was quite pale, but her eyes were blazing. There were some drops of blood upon her cheek —they came from her wrists, which Giles held firmly. The door of the chaise being opened, she stepped out willingly, disdaining the assistance Giles offered her. His face, too, was very pale, and he looked and moved like a man in a nightmare. The black smith grinned broadly; he thought his gains were to be increased—for I had not forgotten to pay him hand somely. Giles seized her hand. “Arabella,’* he cried, desperately, "surely you do not now mean to throw me over?” For answer, she gave him a glance of ineffable hatred. "This man,” she said, turning to me, “you friend, your intimate—l blush for you—has dragged me here. Rather would I die than marry him. Look!” She held up her wrists, and they showed marks of violence. “ ’Twas to keep her from jumping out of the chaise," said Giles, widly. "She would have had me leave her at midnight, on the highway—alone and unprotected. Dearest Arabella,” he cried, turning to her, and trying to clasp her, "will you not listen to my prayer? How can you scorn such love as mine?" And he was near go ing down on his knees to her, In the mud —but I held him up. I confess that the most painful thing of all this painful business was Giles Vernon's complete surrender of his manhood, under the influence of his wild pas sion. He, an officer In his majesty’s, sea service, a man who had smelt powder and knew what it was to look Death in the eye and advance upon him, who would have answered with, his life for his courage, was ready to grovel in the earth like a madman for the favor of a woman. Nothing was it to him that low-born creatures like the postboys and the blacksmith beheld him with contempt and dis gust; nothing to him that a woman like Daphne, and that I, a brother of ficer. witnessed his degradation. He seemed to have parted with the last semblance of self-respect. (TO BE CONTINUED.) Little Pitchers. The angel-faced child of the house looked up ingenuously at the middle aged young lady guest: “Miss Passy,” she cooed, “I heard Cousin Nell and Miss Flip talking about you this morning and Cousin Nell said you were wearing the willow for young Mr. Goodthing.” “What!” gasped Miss Passy. "And are you wearing pussy wil lows, Miss Passy?” pursued the angel faced child. “What!" shrilled Miss Passy. “I thought maybe you were, because Miss Flipp said you were a cat” DELVING INTO PSYCHOLOGY. Michigan Man and His Twelve Dis ciples Are Now Completing “Silent Manuscripts.” Whitehall, Mich.—Living with his 12 disciples In the “Valley of the Pines," near this village, and delving deep into the mysteries of psychology, a study to which his entire life nas been de voted, J. A. Sadony is now completing the last of his 12 “silent manuscripts,’’ which are carefully stored In a heavy iron safe, securely locked away In a small cement buildiny near the mouth of White lake. His 12 disciples, selected by Sudony himself, during trips through every J. A. Sadony, country on the globe, number almost as many different nationalities, each being chosen for his peculiar fitness in the particular branch of the cult which the philosopher desired Hint he follow. The latest member lias now been In the colony 12 years, and the prepara tion of 12 manuscripts by these men Is at once to he started These hooks, together with the 12 that Sadony him self has nearly finished, will outline with the greatest minuteness the be lief which these men have followed for so many years. Sadony is a believer in the “simple life.” Nothing distracts him from his study and from early morning until late at night all 13 of the men work hard at their hooks and indulge in pro longed debates witli each other. All questions, after being argued out nt length, are referred to the entire 13, who decide only after careful consid eration just what lines the creed will follow. Within the space of about a year Sadony expects that the work of him self and his disciples will he completed and put into logical shape, it will not, however, he presented to the public. Sadony sees to It that all of the writ ings of the cult are carefully protected from the curious and liy keeping them under double lock and key, within a cement house, the walls of which are nearly three feet thick, makes It cer tain that no prying eye shall see any of the cult’s teachings. When the 24 manuscripts are com pleted, 12 years will he spent In going over their teachings and small revis ions will be made from time to time. At the close of the period the cult will he opened to the criticism of the world. It is preparing against minor omissions and perfecting t lie manu scripts against any of the critics who are at once expected to attack it, that Sadony is giving so much time to. And when he completes the work he ex pects that the truths revealed will be so startling as to discredit the work of the critic. TAFT AID IS STORY WRITER. Capt.

He Is a bachelor of 42, a Georgian by birth, who entered the army not by way of West Point, but though vol unteer service In the Spanish war. Before that he had been a Washing ton correspondent for a syndicate of southern papers. Cowboy Disappearing. The passing of the cowboy like that of the Indian, is a loss to the pic turesque In the life of the west; but It means a gain to civilization. The In dian disappears in tradition more squalid than poetic; but the white cowboy, with the energy of his race, becomes himself a producer Instead of a mere herder, of wealth. The change is a gain also to the consum er, for not only is the labor cost of tho product lessened, but the living animal reaches the abattoir compar atively fresh from the grazing land, without the necessity of refattening at the' and of a long, exhausting march. SUGGESTIONS THAT WILL PROVE OF GREAT VALUE TO HOSTESS Ideas for Practical and Pleasing Entertainments for Various Seasons and Occasions—By Madame Merri, the Well-Known Authority. A Croquet Luncheon. Along with other old-fashioned things the time-honored game of cro quet has been revived. These sugges tions are for a luncheon to follow u match. The table should be a long one to carry out the scheme with best effect, and if a miniature set of croquet can be purchased it will also simplify matters. Fight small wickets will be needed and they are to be arranged on the table just as on the ground. The cage or crossed arches should be quite tall, as they will form the cen terpiece. Any handy man (or wom an) can make these wickets with blocks of wood and wire. Wind the wickets first with green crepe paper, then with fine picture wire or florist's wire. Cover them with sweet peas or any other flower that may be pre ferred, but the sweetpeas are espe cially pretty when the delicate pink, white and lavender are combined. Each wicket may have a ribbon bow on top. The tiny croquet mallets are laid at each place with name cards tied to the handle. For bonbons have hard candy balls flavored with fruit Juice; the confectioner will mnke them in all the delicate shades. The croquet stakes, ribbon-bound, should bo at the head and foot and the sue ceßsful players have these seats. A Bit About Ages. The following questions, which may form part of a very pleasant enter tainment, are answered by words end ing in "age:” 1. To what ago will people arrive If they live long enough? THE SUNSHADE Designs for Modish Parasois of This Season. 1 ORE than usual originality and taste are shown in this season's > designs for parasols, both shapes and materials appearing M in varied conceptions. The form of the moment Is the Japanese, au al most flat parasol with a large number of ribs. It is picturesque in the ex treme for country use. and Is pre sented in charming materials. That illustrated In the first sketch is made up in a fabric not seen heretofore in sunshades, it being a printed scrim. In texture this Is quite coarse and al most transparent, deep cream in color, with great poppies in rose, backed by a fern-like green foliage. The lining of this is green, the frame gilt tipped, and the handle plain in light wood. Scrim is warranted to give the best possible service and cannot be excelled for every-day use. The handkerchief parasol, the orig inal of the drawing, No. 2, takes Its name from the shape of the frame, which is like two squares laid one over the other, the eight corners form ing the tips. Every other tip is un lined, a rich red muslin lining the underneath square. For the top is used one of the prettiest patterns in the fancy Berlin, a conventionalized rose and foliage motif, on a slender latticed background. The long stick is stained a deep red, matching the roses. The entire frame is gilt. This DESIGNS FOR THE STOCKINGS Ribbon Embroidery Which Any Clever Needlewoman Can Work for Herself. Among the new stockings a clever j needlewoman can work for herself are [ those done in ribbon embroidery. These designs are generally applied in self colors. Thus the bride will prepare for her trousseau white silk stocking embroidered with an elabor ate floral design combined with bow knots worked in narrow satin ribbon. Black silk stockings with small sprays of flowers in black ribbon, and brown stockings with bunches of rose buds, or Napoleonic wreaths in brown ribbon are exceedingly up to date. Another novelty is to applique to stockings umall medallions or geomet rical designs cut from batiste em broidery. These figures are basted to the stocking to give a good effect, and the edges are then worked in a fine buttonhole stitch, or in over-and-over stlches. Another pretty fancy is to make hearts, diamonds or circles on stock 2. To what ago do most women look forward? 3. What does the soldier sometimes wish for? 4.

The much-curved shape of thlß No. 3) is in Btrong contrast to the flat and shallow Japanese. Its much-curved ribs terminate in a sharply-pointed top, accentuated by a long gold fer rule. In character It Is the substan tial and trig affair suitable for tailor made gowns and coaching use, and is to be had in all colors.

Handles this year are very slender and very long. Tho fourth sketch shows one of the most attractive new ideas, that of us ing flowered ribbon ns a panel around the center of the parasol. Tho effect is lovely and one may find any and all combinations of color to choose from. The one shown Is finely-striped black and white taffeta, the pompa dour ribbon in shadowy pinks and blues.

The batiste applique is improved if small embroidered dots or circles are combined with it. Thus three or four medallions of the applique can bo used, alternating with dots or circles on either side. IN VOGUE Black hats have never been so high In favor. Wide velvet ribbons on hats are a sudden fad. Hat feathers are long and stand al most straight up. Smart men are wearing colored col lars In the morning. Patches of embroidery appear at random on spring gowns. There Is a turquoise fad In Jewelry. New corsets are long and are al most without curves. Roomy armholes are appearing In wraps for dress wear. Some parasol handles are covered with kid to match the costume.
