Miss Kennedy was a coquette. Every one but a few of her Intimate friends would tell you this without hesitation. This tact, however, should not have In terested the guests to any great extent. Coquettes of all ages and degrees of beauty were not uncommon ot tho Westminster. But the trouble was that Mies Kennedy was different from the ordinary run of coquettes; so decided ly different, In fact, that the amuse ment furnished by tho young men, of which amusmnent Miss Kennedy was the Indirect cause, grew Into specula tion as the guests tried to explain her peculiar actions and the strange In fluence which she wielded over young men. influence she certainly bad. Nev. er In the history of tho Westminster had so many young men fallen so des perately and uncompromisingly In love with one girl. It seemed Impossible fur them to know her simply as a friend. In fact, platonic friendship seemed quite out of the question so far as Miss Kennedy was concerned. It was quite inexplicable. She was good-looking, of course, but then there were numerous girls In the neighbor hood, and, Indeed, some at tho West minster no less fair, who never In their careers had caused such general furore among a gathering of young men. Her enemies said that her heart. It she had one. was ns cold and as Im pervious as steel. If this were not so how could she lead man after man along, keeping his hopes at fever heat? Her enemies thought this cruel. Her dear friends, however, thought other wise. They said that If she really was as cold as steel then her sweet smiles and her sincere and winning manners certainly belied her. If men insisted on becoming so enamored with her, was It her fault? And If her sweet and sympathetic disposition and smiles — which she bestowed on all alike, were misconstrued by some ardent (hough deluded admirers, would she be cen sured when,, as time went on, It be came her painful duty to dispel the hallucination? No; they thought she was rather to ho pitied. One of her philosophical friends, n young law stu dont, hit the nail on the head when ho o/.d that, beauty was not the essential. The real thing, he said, that appealed to men was the knack of appearing congenial and sympathetic; In short, to understand a man and have an adaptability to various natures; to give weight to one’s opinions and to exhibit other Mattering marks of attention and respect which could not fail to Impress tho average man. Some girls feign this, according to the law student, but Miss Kennedy was Innocence Itself, and hor Interest and sympathy for her friends came not from duplicity but from pure goodness of heart. Tho law student might Just as well have kept silent, however, as he had already been voted a great bore, and no one ever paid any attention to what ho said. At all events so many of tho young men at tho Westminster bad fallen prey to Mias Kennedy’s charms, only, to rise sadder and wiser, that It An ally got so that whenever a fellow be gan to avoid tbe usual evening gath ering on tho veranda,, tho hoarders merely nodded wisely and said noth ing, while the young men hugged one another In ccstocy, and when, after a week or two, perhaps longer, perhaps not so long, ho began to mingle In with the crowd, and with a saddened face to takS up once more the old order of life, tho boarders smiled again, while tho young men, most of whom had been through tho same course, welcom ed him effusively, and ho, though sore and sour. Joined them while they waited for another unfortunate. The prospective unfortunate was generally designated as “next.” And so wßen tho depot hack rolled up (he winding driveway one August afternoon and a rather good-looking young man alighted and walked up the Steps, n general smile flashed over tbe faces of the older guests, while the young men chackled Joyously. “Gad, another victim,” chuckled a stout young man of the name of Jud son. "All we’ve got to do Is to get the mintroduced and then watch for the luu. Eh, boys?” "That’s just the idea,” assented Gil bert Chauncy of Amherst. “Every fol low must ijiako it bis business to sec that they meet as soon as possible and’’— “Oh. yes, get them together,” Inter rupted Ooldthwalte. “You will get hold of the wrong man or rather the right man some day, and you won’t have half tho fun you expect He will win her.” "Ho. ho, Goldy’s getting nervous." Jeered several “He is afraid of his chances. Never mind, Goldy; a man with your figure need never fear a rival.” Stout, good-natured Ooldthwalte on ly smiled. He was, in fact, an enigma to moat of the boys. He had early fal len prey to Miss Kennedy's charms and, strange to say, be still remained In her good graces. Someone from another hotel said he had known her In New York. Ooldthwalte was very close mouthed and would not talk ot his affairs. He still clung tenaciously to Miss Kennedy, and although he bad witnessed tbe downfall of many ho bad never been in a position where he could experience their sensations. His friends unkindly said that this was be cause Ooldthwalte did not know when he-was rebuffed or squelched. How ever that may have been, he seemed perfectly happy and said nothing. Some time after the arrival ot the newcomer a number of the boys were lying In hammocks enjoying the cool ing breezes from the Sound and dis cussing plans for bringing the “next” to his fate, when the sound of merry laughter in the direction of the hutel caused them to look up. What they saw caused Involuntary ejaculations ot astonishment to escape the lips of the young men in the hammocks, for there coming down <’ie steps together, were the prospective victim and the very young woman they wanted him to meet. They appeared to be on excel lent term for so short an acquaintance, and this fact struck Chauncy so forci bly that he rose In his hammock and gazed at them with curiosity. “Humph!” he grunted. "tone one seems to have got ahead of us. How ever, it’s Just ns well. Ami now,” he added, slapping a companion on the back, "oil we've got to do Is to push things along gonlly and watch." That evening at ilruncr iho hoys all met him, and found, among other things, that ho wts a lawyer, and that he lived in New York City, Miss Ken nedy lived In that city; so did Cohlth waite. He was a very Interesting, self reliant sort of a man, and he was pro nounced a very promising victim. Hla name was Lawrence. By the end of tho wcok things were progressing splendidly. Lawrence bad paid attentions to Mies Kennedy In a way that exceeded the wildest dreams of tho hopeful, ami ho had surely become entangled In the meshes that had captured so many youthful hearts. In the morning he accompanied her to tho beach or sat under some rhndy tree while she read..and In the afternoon they went driving. Ot even ings they took long walks In the moon light or sat together on tho porch. Ooldthwalte managed to get In an oc casional tete-a-tete or a moonlight stroll. In short, he played a very ex cellent second violin with a complais ance that dumfounded his comrades. "Tho best part of It Is,” said Curtis one night, “we did not have to do a stroke of work In getting them togeth ' cr. Ho seemed to take to her as soon as ho new her ami now thry are os thick ns thieves.” “Who Introduced them?” asked Ooldthwalte. "I have been trying to find how It occurred am) the circum stances for a good while, hat no one norms to know anything about It” “That's so.” said another. “Come to think, It does seem a trifle strange that they should be seen hobnobbing so thickly an hour after ho arrived." “Well," said young Dwight, "how ever they may have become acquainted or whoever Introduced them, one thing Is certain, they know each other now. Ho let’s not worry about such a trif ling matter, but look forward to that glorious day when,tho Hon. John Lawrence will go around with a face as dark ns a November landscape and vainly wavering between tho pistol, arsenic or a foreign dime." “Just ns Charley Dwight, did," Inter rupted Chauncy, with a grin. "Oh, Hirro were others." retorted Dwight. "At nny rote, 1 give him an other week before ho lands on his bade on the cold, cold world with a hideous realization that life is not what ft seems." "Hear, hear!” cried several, ami then, as the strains of dance music readied their ears, they adjoined to the music room so fully assured that the end was near that oven the most sceptical could not but smile gleefully as Lawrence and Mlks Kennedy glided by to the tune of the latest popular waltz. But as the lime went on, things be came serious. Tho week allotted for the downfall of Lawrence passed, and ttlll another week elapsed. The young men began to get worried. "Say, Jack," growled Dwight to Chauncy one Sunday night, "this thing does not seem to go off as smoothly as some of us have been pleased to think It would. Here’s two weeks passed and no change. Moreover,from all appearances there does not seem to be any likelihood of any change ex cept for the worse—worse for us," ho added. That young Dwight voiced tho senti ments of the entire crowd was very evident. Ills sentiments were accepted as disagreeable facts by every one. The guests smiled significantly. “We have got to smash tilings some how,” said Grey one evening, as Law rence and Miss Kennedy strolled down tho driveway. "This game Is too one-sided. I fall to see where qur fun comes In at all. It Is time to make some on our hook. We’ve got to make him ridiculous, make a fool ot him by some practical joke. I tell you. fellows, v, ve got to do something. Wo can't let one man heat a dozen of us, can wc?” “All right,” grinned Goldthwalte. “You bright boys get together and do your prettiest and I'll look on and ap plaud. As for mo, I am done with tho whole business." The boys got their heads together and from that time forth Mr. Law rence’s life became unbearable. One night, when he rame In late, he found his doors and windows nailed,shut and was compelled to sleep In Ooldth waite’a room. He was subjected to many other annoyances. One evening when ho attended a dance at a hotel at North West Hampton he found that his dancing pumps had been stolen from his satchel and replaced by a pair of dusty goloshes. I.awrcnco, however, bore these indignities with the stoicism of an Indian chief. The end of the three weeks brought with It the time of Lawrence’s de parture, but strange to say there was little happiness among the young men over that fact. They had come to tbe conclusion that Lawrence had won out. "Wo accomplished absolutely no thing,” said Chauncy. “Nothing,” said Grey. “Yes, we have; wo have succeeded In bringing them closer together. If we had kept on much longer we would have bad them engaged. That Is, If they arc not engaged already.” “Oh, don't let that worry you,” said Dwight, who became angry when any one spoke of Miss Kennedy being en gaged. The boys were all seated In the sum mer-house near the winding pathway, Lawrence was to leave on the 10 o’clock train, and it was already 9 o’clock. Miss Kennedy and Lawrence had not been seen for some time and Gold thwalte was also missing. There was no moon and it was quit dark. Chaun cy and his companions sat silently in the summer-house, every man puffing gloomily upon a pipe. There came a sound of laughter from the porch and a second later three persons came strolling down tho driveway. One was Miss Kennedy, the other two were Ooldthwalte and'Lawrence. One was walking very near Miss Kennedy. Ho was Goldthwalte. Lawrence seem ed content to fall into the background. He carried a dress-suit case in either hand. As they reached the summer house, Goldthwalte looked had; at Lawrence and said: “Say, Jack, It was blamed flne of you to turn in and help Edith and me out the way you did. The boys would have killed me bad they known that I was engaged tq her before she came here, but we were not quite ready to announce It at first and did not dare to afterward. You'r a good actor, 1-ttwrcnce,. and I see no barm In your flirting with a girl even if she is your sister-in-law. You came at the right time; I could not have kept the secret much longer. We will follow you to the day after tomorrow.” Then they passed on to the depot. The summer-house remained m dark and as quite ns the abode of tho dead. Far Into the night shone tho glow of tho embers In a dozen bull dog pipes, and when tho damp mid night breeze began to set In from tho Sound a line of ghostlike figures stole silently and sullenly from tho summer' house and went to bed. —New York Evening Bun. THE RATTLESNAKE. A Calient Gentleman Who Always Chal lenges llnforn lln l-lghte. The rattlesnake, probably tho most deadly American snake, Is really a gentleman, as snakes go. Ho never eats his own friends, as most other snakes do, and he always plays fair and gives warning before bo strikes. In the early pioneer days, west of the Rockies, rattlers were frequently eaten by hard-pressed travelers, and their flesh Is said to boos good as chicken. Great skill must be exercised In catch ing this snake, If ho Is to bo-eaten, as he has a trick of biting himself when cornered and so committing suicide, and in this case his flesh is as deadly os bis bite. Tho maligned pig, who Is known by those who properly understand him to bo n really bravo and Intelligent little brant, regards rattlesnakes as the greatest luxury and attacks and kills them with absolute fearlessness. On n California ranch a certain field was so overrun with rattlers that It was practically useless. It was fenced In and a pair of young plgn turned Into It. Tho pigs grew fat ami sleek, and In a short time they had gobbled up every last rattler. Plgglwlg has been known to attack tho largest and most deadly snakes and come off victor in the fight. Apropos of the well known fact that n rattler will bite hlmeself and com mit suicide rather than full Into the hands of his enemies, tho tale is told by hundreds in the far west that a little bird, a native of tho Rookies, Is extremely Interested In tho extermin ation of tho rattler. Bo far as Is known, this bird does not feed upon file snake, but Is actuated solely by motives of benevolence In ridding the world of these dangerous reptiles. Seeing a rattler asleep or sunning him self ou a stone, this thoughtful ami energetic little body flies off and re turns with bits of very prickly cactus, which the bird places In a little circle around him. When the circle Is quite complete tho enterprising bird, eager to see the results of Ms toll, swoops down and runs his bill Into the sleep ing snake, which Starts to move away, only to encounter tho cactus, over which ho cannot crawl. Ho turns about and strikes the cactus again. Finding himself unable to escape, he bites himself and dies by his own deadly weapon. St. Louis Globe- Democrat. CUAINT AND CURIOUS. A curious coin used by Iho Gauls about 2000 years ago was shaped like a horseshoe or tl.e .capital letter U, and was about a quarter of an Inch thick and two Inches across. Pennsylvania was originally settled by Swedes In 1027. They were forcibly subjugated In 1655 by tho neighboring Dutch of New Amsterdam (New York), who themselves passed under English rule In 1664. Philadelphia and Penn sylvania proper were founded by Penn In ICB2. A St. Petersburg medleal student, M. Kolomalzoff. has Just completed a cu rious scientific experiment; he has hatched out a turkey's egg by carry ing It about for 18 days under his arm. In consequence of his success quite a crowd of people In Ht. Petersburg are now endeavoring to hatch out geese, hens qnd ducks In tho same manner. It is a healthier occupation than hatch ing plots.

At one time, If a Japanese girl mar ried a foreigner, she was Instantly de capitated. A Portuguese was proba bly the first European to marry a daughter of tho land of the chrysan themum with Impunity. He went there 30 years ago, and fell In love with a Japanese girl. Her parents wainsd her of the fatal consequences of mar rying him, but she persisted, with the result that the Mikado decided that she must be beheaded. However, after a correspondence of over five years’ duration between the Portuguese and Japanese governments, she was per mitted to live. The horses of the Pilgrims were all alike in form and size. After cutting down trees and sawing logs of suitable length, the men dragged them by hand along the ground—for there wore no horses or other beasts of burden —and laid them one upon another, thus form ing the walls. Probably the chimneys and fireplaces were of stone, crevices being plastered up with mortar, made by mixing straw and mud, and oil paper taking the place of glass for windows. At the best, these log-houses were poor makeshifts for dwellings In the severe winter along the bleak New England coast. For furnishing these simple homes, the Pilgrims had brought, over such articles as large arm-chairs, wooden settles, high-posted beds, truckle-beds for young children and cradles for babies. The cooking was done in a big fireplace. Here the housewife baked bread In large ovens, roasted meat on iron spits, which they bad to keep turning In order to cook all sides of the roast alike, and boiled various kinds of food In large kettles hung over the fire.
