rsmrsrcr r: t THE LITTLE TI:o i)rtrait of two fair girls which I v in tin.- gallery of l',c irraml old man sion sit fca.stoninorf? I knew lial a history. If any oiif kuow it, I was sure that Mr. Gray, flu; motherly housekeeper, did. asked her to tell ir to me. "The sor.v of those two-fair faces and the wanderinsr master, ns you call him, I one and the same, Hilda," she said at length. "I will tell it to you now." And I settled myself to listen. Lenore Pulton aud Ivy Cordon were tepsistcr. Ivy lieiuc the daughter of Mr. la!toa's second wife, but treated by .Mr. Daiton a. if she had been his own, "I was '.lie orphan daughter of a friend ef Mr. Ialton. ami. though only three years older than I.enore, I was made her irovertiess and companion, for Ignore at 17 knew little or nothing save music, and f that she was passionately fond. "Ivy Cordon was the same age as Le- nure. but looked childish in comparison, for Ignore miirht easily pass for 20. One nay Mr. Dulton brought home a distant relative of I-enore's on her moth er's fide, saying he was going to be their guest for some time. " Oh. Helen, he is so handsome,' Le- aore said, meeting me on the stairs, for had not been at home when Alured Vin cent raine, "that I am in lore with him already!' I cannot account for it; but, standing there. I felt that somehow the coming of this handsome stranger would bring sor row to Kastontuere. "Two weeks later Lenore gave a ball. and. when at her urgent request I went down, the parlors seemed a vision of fairyland. "Lenore looked strangely beautiful in her dress of pale rose silk, her raven hair falling in heavy curls over her shoulders down to her rounded waist, and above her brow glittered a diamond aigret. Her Beck and shoulders gleamed like polished ivory beneath the foamy lace that cover ed them. "In all the gay crowd Lenore was the gayest, for her idol, Alured Vincent, stood near her, admiration pictured in hi? proud dark eyes and grave sweet smile. But I noticed how often his eyes wan dered from the beautiful face beside him to Ivy tiordun, who stood some little dis tance from them, looking like some fair, pure lily in her simple white robes. "In that moment I knew that Alured Vincent simply admired his brilliant cousin, but that he loved my lily blossom. as I always called Ivy (iordon. The weeks passed on. and still Lenore Daltoa was blind to what was patent to all oth- r eyes the love of Alured Vincent for Ivy Gordon. "But at last her eyes were opened, for rae fair, bright evening she and I strayed down the oak path together, she talking aad I listening listening with a deep pity at my heart, for she was speaking of her love for Alured Vincent. "Suddenly, with a low, sharp cry, sha topped and clung to my arm. "'Sec see. Helen! she' gasped, white even to her lips. And I. glancing through the intervening trees, saw Alured Vin ceat. his arm around Ivy Gordon, whosa golden bend was resting on his shonlder. aad bis face alight with deathless love. "Like a statue Lenore stood, her breat coming iu short quick gasps. "No other word came from her lips till we came to the ruins of an old bouse that had onre been the home of the Daiton f Eastonniere. "All around it ran a balcony, surround ed by a frail balustrade. It must always have been frail, but then the wood wis rotten, though the balcony itself waa safe enough. "Without a word, Lenore ran np the steps, and I followed, giving no thought to the matter, as we often went tip to sit there. "Before long Alured and Ivy passed. Lenore leaned over the balustrade. " "Come up here, my babes in the wood,' she called, as they were going on. "Ivy laughed and ran op the steps, fol lowed by her lover, whose handsome face was flushed with happiness, and I no ticed that a diamond solitaire glittered on aae of Ivy's slender fingers. "I Mir Lenore's eyes rest on the bril liaat gem the gem that told ns she had promised to lie Alured Vincent's wife, area it his radiant face had not told us Before we noticed it. "As 1-eoore's eyes rested on the gem I aaw a ml Hauie shoot into their depths, aad then she lient suddenly forward and, catching Ivy, dashed her against the frail Balustrade. "A wild cry rang from Ivy's lips as the woodwork gave way with a crash, and the next moment she was lying cold and till oa the ground. "With a mild moan, Alured dropped down to where bis darling lay, her golden curls stained with blood, her fair young face upturned to the sky. "He stooped and raised her in his arms aad bore her to the bouse. As he laid her on the sofa be bent and kissed her lips. Then nature gave way, and, with a groan of anguish, he fell forward on the Boor, the blood gushing from his lips. "For many long, weary weeks Alured "Vinceat lay battling with death. Life and death hang in the balance, and, though life conquered, Alured Vincent was never himself again. He lived, and nothing Blare. The future held do charms nor hopes for him. Ivy Gordon was dead, aad his heart died with her. It could never wake again." "And Lenore?" I said questioningly. "Lenore Daiton was found drowned In 'the lake when they went to search for her. "Oace a year ' Alured Vincent comes hack to his own land, as you call it, bnt he never conies nearer Rastonmere than the little churchyard where his darling Bleeps. On every anniversary of her -4eath he kneels beside the quiet grave where Ivy Gordon rests." Exchange. The Rich Lose Ability to Enjoy. The wealthy soon become satiated and fall victims to ennui, which is worse than weariness. See these in their boxes at the opera. Below them and above them enthusiasm runs riot when the stars sing. They applaud languidly with dainty fan upon the gloved hand. They o it because they think it is expected f them. But their eyes do not light np. th color does not come into their cheeks, their bosoms do not swell with emotion. No. They are tired, they are worn out, they have gone through too much, and even music cannot move them. They really are to be pitied. In the highest gallery sit men and women who get much more ont of the music than these people. They get delight, and of delight those who have too much are soon incapable.

While the newspapers talk the ra- teros act, and instead of being intim idated with all the stern measures projected for their suppression, their audacity positively increases. Yesterday morning E. H. R. Green, son of Hetty Green (the richest woman in the United States) went out with a party for a drive in an automobile wagonette. The vehicle was proceed ing at a medium rate of speed along the south side of the Alameda when it was literally boarded by a ratero who seeing nothing else at hand. snatched a camera from one of the benches and made off with it. But he was soon overtaken and escorted by a policeman to the sixth ward police station. The party had 'to interrupt their pleasant drive and also go to the po lice station. Miss Mabel H. Harlow, to whom the camera belonged had to make her'deposition, but she was treat ed with every courtesy and considera tion by Inspector Jimeno and his em ployes. It is probably the first time that an automobile has been held up in any city and the boldness of the thief is re markable. SALE OF THE GOULD RANCH IN MEXICO. The Deal Is a Big One. Involving Fine Herd of Hereford Cattle. The hacienda de Sainapuchic, the big Gould ranch in Mexico, compris- ng 6o,000 acres, was leased Saturday to F. G.

Mr. Ocsheer also bougnt the Here ford herd of cattle, known as the A. B. Hulitt herd, and will transfer the cat tle to the Gould ranch this week. He proposes to have one of the leading fine cattle ranches in the country and will make the Hulitt herd the largest In the west. The terms of the sale could not be learned but it is said that the cattle deal was entirely a cash transaction. Mr. Hulitt has disposed of all his in terests in Mexico and left the country.
