Chapman.) “He asked me to marry him,” spoke Greta Wilder, and drearily her cousin, Madge Boyce, regarded her with mingled mystery and surprise. “And you told him, ‘no?’ ” “Y'es,” voiced Greta, half audibly. “And you ‘yes?’” softly in timated Madge. “Yes. I did, and I'm sorry for it I” burst forth Greta unrestrainedly. “And I love him. oh Madge! so dearly, and always have.” “Then why—” But Greta had broken down utterly. She had buried her face on the shoul der of her confidante and was sobbing as though her heart would break. “Well, I declare!” murmured Miss Boyce, older and, therefore, wiser than Greta and half guessing at the truth. This came out in detail, as Greta partially recovered her composure. She had a friend, girl chum, as her vis iting friend knew —Norma Earle. Well then, she had confessed her prefer ence to Norma in a letter and had told her that she was sure that Wade Griscom was on the verge of a pro posal. Norma had written her in re ply, giving advice. It was to the ef fect that no girl should let a man think she was to be easily won. There fore. “keep him on the string and try him out.” “And so, I followed her advice,” mourned Greta, “and the strange way that Mr. Griscom acted haunts me. We were interrupted by brother Ned coin ing on the scene, but Mr. Griscom just chuckled. He looked at me so strange ly ! Do you suppose,” questioned Greta anxiously, “that my refusal has driven him mad? He went right away so queerly. Maybe it was a blow he could not hear, I may have broken his heart and driven him to despair and suicide.” “Don’t he foolish, Greta,” soothed her sensible cousin. “Only, I am sur prised to see you following the advice of the most heartless coquette and flirt in all your list of acquaintances.” Greta seemed the better for some sound, practical counsel from her cousin, but towards dusk she coaxed Lost in Sad and Dreary Reflection. her to take a stroll. Madge did not reveal the fact that she was sure Greta was hoping to meet Wade Griscom. Which was true. Madge had never seed Griscom, nor did she know that as they cut across a vacant space it was near a house where Griscom lived. An upper window was open and the apartment was flooded with light. Greta uttered a subdued cry and Madge had to quite catch her in her arms to support her. “Why, Greta!” she exclaimed, and then her eyes fell upon a picture in the room. Near the window sat a man. He was really looking into a mirror, but the girls did not observe this. To all appearances he was lost In sad and dreary reflection. His face was ashen, deep rings showed about the eyes. His whole presentment was that of a prematurely aged young man though sickness or sorrow, broken down and hopeless. Almost hysterical Greta fairly pulled her companion out of range of the house. She hurried her homeward, Incoherently sobbing out her grief. “That was Mr. Griscom,” she im parted, in tears, to her companion, “but oh! how changed. Can’t you see I’ve given my poor dear love his death blow? He has changed to a decrepit old man within a few hours. How shall I ever forgive myself!” “This won’t do, Greta,” censured Madge firmly. “Now, my dear, you try and compose yourself.” “But he, Wade, he may die!” whim pered poor stricken Greta. “I’ll see what I can do,” promised Madge. “You can hardly expect me to go direct to the afflicted young man, hut I will find out what I can.” Madge was gone for an hour. She found Greta anxiously twisting her hands In nervous anxiety upon her re turn. “Did —did you see him?” questioned Greta breathlessly. “No, Greta, for he had left the house. I learned that” “Perhaps to leave for some far soli tude, where I-e can forget all my cruel treatment!” wailed Greta. “Scarcely,” replied Miss Boyce. “From what I could gather he has gone to a theatrical entertainment at the next town.” Greta looked blank. It could not be possible! A man in his despairing con dition thinking of pleasure! Qh! THE SEA COAST ECHO, BAY ST. LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI Madge most be mistaken, bat Ifadgtt was positive and finally persuaded Greta to think that matters were not as desperate as she fancied. At all events she succeeded in quieting down* her hysterical companion. Greta slept but little that night. She: was wretched all of the next morning.' In the afternoon she went down the street. Turning a corner she came face to face with Wade. She stood rooted, her face one void of indescrib able amazement. Wade was with a friend. He was all smiles, almost Jovial, conversing with his companion. He lifted his hat to Greta, excused Vmself to his friend and came straight up to Greta. Never had he looked so brisk, -so handsome. The sunken eyes, the hollow cheeks, the dying invalid conditions were gone. What the mystery? “Did you wish to see me. Miss Wil der J” questioned Wade pleasantly. “You stopped, and I am delighted to think it was to speak to me.” Greta stammered, flushed, paled, be came dreadfully embarrassed. “Was —that is—l presume you en joyed the theatrical entertainment at Woodville last evening,” she finally managed to articulate coherently. “Oh, you know that?” he spoke, and laughed cheerily. “Yes, indeed! They gave me quite n ovation. I doubt if I deserved it.” “An ovation?” repeated Greta vaguely. “It was that. You know, it was an amateur function. I played the old man. Made up at home, and quite startled my usual friends with my hag gard appearance. Why, Miss Wilder! are you ill?” Greta had moved quite unsteadily. In a shock she comprehended. The transition of old age was explained. Rouge and dyes were accountable for it. Oh. never should he know that she had witnessed the transformation, nor her sufferings! “I —I felt slightly dizzy,” stammered Greta and then she thrilled, for he had stepped nearer to her and his eyes were earnest and longing. “Miss Wilder,” he said, “I have a confession to make. When you re fused me yesterday we were interrupt ed before I could explain my manifes tation of glee.” “Glee!” murmured Greta faintly. “Just that, for it was just so much nearer to my second proposal, which I wish to make now. You see. I picked up a letter on the street which you must have lost. It was from Miss Earle. I read its substance before I guessed what it was.” “Oh ! how could you—l mean, how could I he so careless as to lose it.” “But think of the hope, the joy. the delirious happiness with which It in spired me,” dilated Wade extrava gantly. Greta was trembling nil over. She fluttered closer to him unconsciously. “So what did I find going through the program of your lady friend when I knew that perseverance would bring its own reward.” “You are very hopeful, aren’t you?” challenged Greta rallying slightly. “Do you bid me despair then?” sub mitted Wade, She bowed her head to hide them from the glad eyes too full of ardent love and truth. The Great Melting Pot. The public school is the best-known and most relied upon melting pot that America has; it is a tradition that the five-year-old Slav, Czech, Italian, French. German, British and other “strangers” enter the public school to come out after a dozen years quite Americanized or well on the way to being so. But this function of the pub lic school as a melting pot for the ra cial elements is always considered in its relation to the pupils only, while its relation to the teachers is in reality even more interesting. Superintendent F. E. Spaulding of the Minneapolis public schools tells us that the 448 teachers appointed to that city's teach ing staff during the last two years rep resent 23 nationalities. Only 51 per cent of the teachers appointed a”e of American, English-Araerican or Eng lish parentage. Fifteen per cent are of Norwegian or Swedish parentage, 11 per cent of German, 7 per cent of Irish, 4 per cent of Scotch and 2 per cent of French parentage. The Spanish, Rus sian, Jewish, Danish and Bohemian races are other elements represented by competent teachers in the Minneap olis schools. Prosperity in Japan. Japan may be regarded as one of the most prosperous countries in the world. Her chemical industry Is flour ishing, and she has large orders for cotton, while her flour milling In dustry is very prosperous. In addi tion she has made Immense sales of munitions, chiefly to Russia. It is not too much to say that Japan’s ex pansion in the cotton and shipping industry will place her in a position for severe competition In all Pacific markets in the future; and this com petition is backed by government sup port in every form and a business personnel keenly alive to special and national interests. Industrially she has no trade unions to contend with and the artisan population is abso lutely in the hands of employers. Strikes are seldom heard of and wages are low. Double-Barreled Revenge. Wilkinson was near the exploding point when his neighbor met him in the street. ‘That man Potter,” he burst out, “has more cheek than anybody I ever met” “Why, what has he done?” asked the neighbor. “He came over to my house last night and borrowed a gun to kill a dog that kept him awake at night.” “Well, what of that?” “What of that?” shouted Wilkinson “It was my dog.” New Ways of Sterilizing Soil.

Why Rheumatism Comes With Cold Weather! BY VALENTINE MOTT PIEBCE, M. D. A close connection exists between; these two —cold weather and rheu-; matism. Prof. Alex. Haig, of London, has the most followers in the medical profession in the* belief that the pres ence in the system of uric acid, or its salts in excess, is the real cause of rheu matism. Everyone has recognized the difference in the appearance of their water as soon as it gets cold; there is often a copious sediment of brickdust. Several causes may lead up to an accumulation of uric acid in the system, which, in turn, causes rheumatism or gout, or creaky joints, or swollen fingers, or painful joints. For one reason the skin does not throw off the uric acid, by profuse sweating, as in the hot weather, and the kidneys are unable to take care of the double burden. Another reason More Understandable.
