7 SELEGTED STORY. A L'lnlu Olrl. I nm a vory ordluary glil, wlth plain faco nnil r. nartlcular cotnponBatlng ndvantagep. Rupert Donison ls ofton at our houso. That ho lovos Phylll8 is quito cortnin, and thnt rhyllis lovos him la cqually boyond doubt. My tnonoy? Oh, yosl I havo money. Flonly. Moro than I know what lo do wlth. But no ono 1b awaro of thls ox copt my BolicltOTB, n Londou flrm, and uiy brokore, a London bnuk. So thnt thoro 1b no dnngcr of tho truth lonking out ns thoro would bo if my ngouta woro local pcoplo. Why I nm nt auch pnins to couccal thlsfnct I wlll explain. Tho plan orlgtnatod wlth my doar fa thcr, who ha8 now beon dcad for up ward of n ycar. My mothcr, I may montlon In paaBlng, dlcd whon Phyllis was born. Pcoplo who know my fathor prior to hla borcavomont havo often told mo how dovotcd ho was to my mother and hov tromondous au effcct hor doath had upon hlm. They havo moro thau hinted that hla brnln wns pormanontly ufTectcd by that aorrow, and tbat tho hugo flnanclal lossos -which nftorward ovortook hlm woro in no small mcnsuro duo to his thorcby impnircd intolllgonco. Thoao Iosbgb, howovor, woro com parativoly rccont. Thoy occurrod whon 1 was aevonteon. Till thon wo had lived in a largo house, with many aorvants, horsca and carringes. But withln a fow weeka all was changod. A bank wlth whlch my father waa dooply involvcd failod. Wo had to loavo tho big houao and all tho luxu ries wo had hithorto onjoycd and to tnko a vory tiny houso indeod, thls same house, in fnct, whoro Phyllis nnd I atill livo. I romombor ofton hcaring my father say at tho timo that ho waa thnnkful enough to havo been nblo to pny hiB liabilities nnd to havo savod oven 5,000 or 0,000 out of tho wreck, and I remembor, too, its strik ing mo tbat ho boro his ruin not mere ly with fortitudo, but uctually with cbccrfulnese, and that he eecmed quito as happy in our humblo homo, waitod on by ono maid, as I had evor known him in our big houso with a scoro of servants nt his call and overy luxury that monoy could buy. It ia hardiy neceasury to say that our como dowu in tho world had tho usual cffect of separating our frienda from us in tho moat complete and accurate man ner. A fow atuck to ua from tho llrst. A fow droppcd ub from tho llrst. These werc tho foblish amoug them, in oppo slto extremte. For as it is fooliBhly quixotic lo stick to a ruinod friend so it is foolishly indecent to drop him out of hnnd. Wiso folk do what tho ma jority of our frienda did. They just alacked off a little, and then a little more, and bo on, by decent gradatione. I had then many bosom frienda among young girla in tho noighborhood. Ono of them, named Laura Cleal, wrote to me just after our change of fortuno to say how aorry Bho was. Then she was my ever loving friend. In her next letter aho waa my very nffectionately, then my nffectionately, nfter that my sincerely. Today aho is my very truly and has bcen bo any timo thcae sovon years. Were it not for tho ordinary requlrements of civility sho would doubtlesB by this timo bo my obedient )y. Laura Cleal of courao is only a eample. I do not blamo any such Laura ClealB, or tho mammas or gov ernoesea who edited their lettera and their affectiona. On tho contrary, I nm truly thankful to havo beon let down bo gradually. For without any rudo ahock I havo found my proper level, whicn, atter au, ia an oxceiient thing for overy ono. From tho timo of my father'a ruin until I was twenty-ono tho tenor of my lifo waa humdrum and uneventful. But on my twenty-flrst birthdoy I had an extiaordinary aurprise. At break fast on that day nmong tho lotters and packets lying round my plate tbero waa a fat, bulky envelope addrcssed to mo in my father'a handwriting. I opened it flrst, I remembor, oxpecting to find Bome eimplo birthday gift, Buch aa ho had been accuBtomed to glve mo in provioua years. You may judge of my inexpresBible amazement when I pulled out of tho envelopo a pile of bank notca and saw that tho top one jvas for 1,000. Speocblesa with aatoniBhment I looked up at my father. He aat regarding me across tho table wo were tete-a-tote, for Phyllis waa staying away with a curious, quiet amile. "You aeem takon aback," aaid my father. "Perhapa you did not expect auch a bandaome present, Nell. And I don't think you undorstand yet what a handBomo proeent it ia. Count them, child." With trembling flngers and with a strange, mazed Bensation, aa though I were in a dream, I turned ovor tho notea ono by one. No, nol It could not bo truc could not bo true. Each noto waa for tho eame amount, 1,000, and 1 had counted 100 of them. One hundred tbousand pounds lying there beforo me on my platol It was abaurd, ridiculoua, impoaaiblol "They are aro not real," I gasped. "This is a hoax a jeat, father." "Thoy aro real onough, Nell," ho nnawered. 'asif you took them to tho Bank of England you would soon flnd, and this is no hoax or jest, my dear. That ia good money, Nell, and I havo given it to you for your very own." "But whore haa it como from, fath er?" I cried, "and why havo you given it all to me?" "It ia my money, Nell," ho aald. "I havo realized all, or noarly all, my in vestments In ordor to mako you thia proBontto-dav." I wob Btlll fncredulouB, unablo to be liovo tho ovidonco of my oyea or eara. "But but I thought wo woro poor, fathor, I thought" "Exaetly, my dear. Everybody thought bo. Everybody thinka bo. L1b ten, Nell. I havo soraething to tell you, My I0S8OB four years ago woro novor anything liko bo oxtenBlvo ns pcoplo im aglned. It wna bollovod that tho bulk of my proporty waa InveBted in that bank. As a mattor of fact I had boon qulotly unloading my BhareB for aomo timo proviously, and tho amount I dropped by tho amaBh wne inaldo 30, 000, but it occurred to me it was au odd notlonjto occur, too that it mlght bo a good jeat to hoax all my frlends A dntlntr bal lootilit flonic tintcs tumblee lienrly two lnin d r e il fcti throiarh tlic nit hanginir on to it opotia.

Aa a man of tho world I didn't oxpect very much of humnu naturo, but I am bound to say I was hardiy pre parcd for the pitiably mean mnuncr in which at leaat ninoty per cent of my in tiniates bohaved to me after my sup poaod Bmnah, and I was looking for wnrd with eomo malicious cnjoyment to reauming my forrner ttatus of n wealthy man and sccing how they would manago to crnvvl or wigfeio back into their old intimacy with me when ono day I happencd to ovorhenr a cou versation botweon two ladiea of our ac quaintnnce (onco our bosom frienda), who sball bo uamclcss, Nell, a couver sation wbich set mo thinkins of other mnttcrs, and after duo rclloction iu duced mo to change my plnua. "You wero tho subject of that con versation, Nell, and what do you think theao mntrons wero aaying of you, my child? Ono of them remnrked tbat aho had alwaya thought what a good 'spcc' you would bo for her eldest boy, and thnt it wna tho cruelcat of shocks to her to lind thnt you wero merely tho dnugh tcr of a pauper. And tho other told her aho ought to bo thankful that things had gone no further, for if tho araaeh had bcen deleycd a little longer then you, Nell, might havo been cngaged to her aon, and thoro would havo bcen a dreadful complicntion. Thereupon tho lady for whoBO Bon you had been mark ed out, my dear, was good enough to pity you. 'Poor child,' she aaid, 'with her plain face, sho will never marry now."' I llusbed whon my father told mo that and tho toara started to my eyes. I know that my looks aro homely as well as any ono and it was fooliah of mo to bo hurt. But I could not help it. My dear father aaw, and ho cauie round to me and took my unattractivo face betwcon his hands. "Well," ho aaid, amlling into my tearful eyea very fondly. "I did not think to wouud vou, little womnn. Tho criticiBms of such contemptible crea- tureB are never wortli mlnding. And if your faco is not beautiful, doar (with auch worda was my fondly piejudiced old father plcaaed to comfort me), it is better than beautiful. It is bonest and tendor and true, and I would not havo it differont for all the world." I dried my tears and smiled and kias ed him. I know tho enconium waa un deserved. But I knew tbat my fathor meant what he aaid, nnd it ia a comfort to bo loved by some one bo much tbat he Beea ono differont from what one is. Nowadays there is no ono Beesme thua. After that ho aaid: "Nell, my dear, when I ovorheard theao remarka which I have told you it at onco aet me tbinking about your fu turo, and I camo to the conclusion that you should not bocomo 'a good speo' for money hunters. Girls nro oaBily do ceivod, my dear, especially when they nro juBt on tho thresbold of life, and theae Beheming fellowa aro mighty clever at foigning love nnd devotion. No, nol You nre not to ho mnrried for your monoy. You aro to bo married for yourself, and yoursolf olone. I detor mined that I would eee to that as for as I could. With that ond in viow I kopt up our Bemblanco of poverty, Nell I havo kopt it up until this minuto, nnd I wlsh to keep it up atill until tho right mnn comea, Nell, tho man who ia good enough to approciato and lovo you, tho man who ahall mako you truly happy. You deserve him, Nell, you desorvo tbo best husband that the world has to of for." (Dear, blind, fooliah old fathor thus to apeok of poor comoionplaco me!) "And eomo day sorao (ay ho will corae." "I I don't want to raarry, fathor," I eaid, Bmiling, yot greatly touchcd by his deop concern for my welfaro. "I have you. You aro bottor than any husband, doar." "Evon if I wero," ho answerod, "I ahall not livo forever. Nay, Nell, I Bhall not livo much longer. My henlth is breaking now, ns I can feel, aud thut is why I hnvo mado this monoy ovor to you now, my child. You nro lo como with mo to London to-da'y. You nro to havo it all invested in your unmo. It ia to bo yours from to-dny nbaolutoly, and whon I dio tho cstato that I ehnll lonvo wlll be just n fow thousanda notbing moro, ond no ono wlll ovor gueBB that you havo 100,000 of your own, my doar. But promiso mo, Nell, promiao mo for I know thnt you will do what you prpmlso that until tho right man comos and loves you and oncn nnd makoa you his wlfo you will koop tbo oxislenco of thls monoy just ns doad a sccrot as lt has beon hithorto I" I tried to dlssuado my father from hla Bchomo. I trlcd to say that I would not tako tho monoy. But ho was so sot upon it, so cngor, ao inalatont, thnt, to pleaso him, I at lnst gnvo way. And so it is without any ono kuowing it I am now absolulo miatrcsa of a largo fortuno a fortuno which with ita accu mulatlou of unspont incomo Is growing overy yoor. And I slill livo wlth Phyl lis in thc samo Bmrll houso and tho snmo small wny. And tho right man has not como and mnrried mo. And I know that now ho novor wlll. JTos, I know it too woll. Thoro Is only ono who could bo tho right man for mo. And ho . But no, I will not say lt. I will try not evon to thlnk it. It is moan, pitiablo, wickod to bo joal ous of my littlo slstor, and in this caso abaurd elso, for evon if thoro woro no Phyllis how should handsomo Rupert ovor givo a thought to ugly mo? I wlll choko down this fooliah onvious wcak ncss, and whon ho spoaks and makoa Phyllis happy I will bo glad and rojoico with with all my heart. At last I think 1 havo found out why Ilupert haa not spokon to Phyllis. It is curious that I havo not thought of it bofore. Buport has no monoy, nothing boyond his pay as managlng clork in n country solicllor's ofllco. It ia only 250 a ycar, and he does not liko doos not think it fnir to ask hor to marry him whon ho can offer her nothing bot tor than tbat. Why cannot somo ono re-adjust tho bnlnncos? Somoone? Who? Why not I? How can I hesitato? I will go up and seo my eolicltor today. I bavo bcen. I havo soon him. I am auro ho thought mo quito idiotic. At flrst ho tried to poohpooh my 8cbcmo, but whon ho found mo ineis tent ho agrecd to do what I wishod. Tho only diillculty waa to givo Rupert tho flnnncial lift ho noeded without lot ting him know tho aourco from which it camo, but nftor somo rtflection my eolicltor thought it could bo mnnaged. He ia pcreonnlly intimatc, it accms, with tho head of Rupert'a flrm, nnd ho cousidored that if aufliclcnt capital wero forlhcoming arraugcmonts might bo mado with him fortaking Ilupert in to pnrtnership. This socmed as practi cablo a schcme na any. And 1 havo left it with him to make thc ncccssary arraugoment, stipulating that sufllcient capital must bo laid out for Rupert'a beneflt to insurc a roturn of at least 1,000 per annum. Threo wceks havo passed ainco thcu. I hoar from my aolicitor that raattors havo beon aatisfactorily arrangcd. I should havo gueascd it evon if I had not hoard from him, for Rupert, who haa been bero overy day for the last four or flvo dnye, haa beon, as I could seo, bubbling ovor with joyful yot half supprcaaed excitement. II 0 has not apokento Phyllis yet, but ho ia coming again this afternoon, und I am suro ho mcans to speak then, for thero was Bomethiug in his manner of announc ing his intended visit for todny that said so plaiuly. Ah, thero he ib now coming up the road. I must run and flnd Phyllis. Pbyllia must be alono to rcceivo him whon ho comes in. How tireaomol How annoyinel I cannot flnd Phyllia any wherc. What can havo becomo of her? Thero ia Rupert ring ing tho bell now. Phylli8l Phyllial She ia no whero in tho house, it Bcoms. Sho must havo gono out, nnd yot sho knew Rupert was coming, and eho must havo guoseed from bis manner why. PorhapB sho did not oxpect him quito ao oarly. I muat go down aud tulk to Rupert till aho comes in. How blue tho sky is thiB afternoon. How bright tho sunshines. How swoetly tho birds aro Biuging. Truly lifo is delicious on a day liko this, and there is an intoxicating joy in every breath one drawe. I .lovo every one today overy one overy one. Do you know why? It is all because somo ono lovea mo. Yes, would you beliovo il? Rupert loved mo from tho flrst. And Phyllis knew and sho nover told me. Sly littlo Phyllis. But I'm glad I did not know beforo. Elao I could never havo bought thut partnership for Rupert, And Bhould I ever have heard the truth then? Doyou hear that robin chirruping in the apple troe? I never notlced littlo Bobby's note before. It is strange how unobservant ono is. But now you como to listen, you cannot fail to re mark it, can you? Harkl There bo goes B8 plain us plain can be.

Plcuse end any BUggestlona or reclpes to our speclal odltor, addrossed GOOD COOKBHY. (Copyrigbt.) My Dear Dorothy: The vacatlon season ls over, tho chll drcn are back In school and wcll pettled at their studles, nnd now comes thetlmc when every housewife ls conslderlng thc subject of preservlnfj and pickltng. Tc be sure, the season for pri'serving ber rlos is past, but the frults, grapes, pennt, peaches, crnbnpples, etc, ls with us, nnd so I nm golng to glve you some lespnns Which I have lenrned from experience. In the flrst plnce, remember that the more perfect the fruit the better will hr the iireserves; you need not expect good rerults If you usc "specked" frult. It s better to use unripe frult rnther thnn that whlch Is overrlpe. Uvery cooklng utensll must be of wood, sllver, granito ware or pnrcclaln ware. An iron spoon and a tln kettlu would ruin frult grown for the gods. Some people try to ecnno mlze by uslng a cheap graJe of sugnv. It ls of no use. Remember tho old say Ing. "The best Is none too Bood." Still another trulsm, "Old rubbors are wortli less." Itemember it, and gct new jnt tubbcrs. If you use old jars cleansf them thoroughly wlth hot sonp suds, !n whlch a little ammonla has been poured. Then to test the jurs to see that no nit wlll escape, flll them half full of water put in the rubber band, udjust the cov ers und then tlp the jars bottom slde ur on a dry cloth for a few mlnutcs. If anj water escnpes try another rubber. Peaches, qulnces nnd pears, as well a all hand frults, should bo pared wlth a sllver knlfe, sllced thln and covered wlth cold wnter to prevcnt their becom liiR dark. 1'lums and a!l kinds of grapes must be stemmed and mashed. Pears and qulnces should be cooked In cleat water, then dralned on a naplcln; flll the Jars wlth the frult and cover wlth a syrup, made by pourlnjj bolllng watei over sug-ar. Peaches, plneapples an'l Bartlett pears requlre half a pound ol sugar to each quart of frult; plums hand pears, prunes nnd qulnces musl have three-quarters of a pound of sugri to each quart of frult. Flll the jars wlth the raw frult, cover wlth tho syrup and then set them In a washboller, not nl lowlnt; one jar to touch another. Covei the jars to the neck wlth tepld wate put on the bollor cover and botl gently but stendlly. Plneappless wlll requlre about 20 mlnutes' cooklng, but 1C mln utes wlll be sulllclent for all the othet fruits mentloned. A pound of sugar and a half plnt of bollingr water Is tli s right proportlon for syrup, and the wh'te of an eprg added before lt beglns to bo!' wlll ald In maklng tt clear If the scum U removed as lt rlses. To cover Jelly use melted paraphlne. Pour lt over perfectly cold jelly and It wlll form a thln crust, whlch wlll com pletely exclude the alr. I thlnk wlth these suggestlons you wlll be able to make your fall preserves all right; but I want to glve you an excel Ient rule for making cucumber plckles, Small cucumbers, from two to four tnches long, make the best plckles. Al low a plnt of salt to 150 cucumbers, dls solved In enough water to cover them; let them soak In thls for two days, keep ing them covered; then remove, draln and wlpe each one carefully; now pul them ln a stone Jar wlth a little alum, mlxed splces, cloves, pepper, allsplce Rnd a blt of onlon, and cover wlth hot vinegar. If you prefer. udd stick cln namon and white mustard seed, but put the splces in several little bags made ol thln muslln; thls prevents the vinegni becomlng muddy and the splces eatinfl the cucumbers. If you wish the plckles to be partlcularly splcy, let the sploe bags boil ln the vinegar for 10 mlnutes. Now is the tlme for you to look aftei green tomutoes for plcalilli. An excel lent reclpe for thls rellsh was given m by your Aunt Jessle, and I nm sure you wlll flnd lt aH right. Slice u peck or green tomatoes, twelve onlons, ono green pepper and one red one, and sprinklo over them one cup oj salt. nnd let tht mlxture stnnd fot twelve hours; then draln off the llquld add a tnbk'spoonful each of groutul cloves, allsplre and clnnamon and three quarters of a cup of grated horseradlsh.
