Janesville, Wis WHEATLEY’S PLAY By Barbara Carus-Wilson “Mr. Wheatley.” He shut the door liastily and went back to her. She impulsively threw her arms around his neck and raised her face to his. Their lips met. She hurriedly extricated herself from his embrace. “What utter folly! I must marry the duke.” “You shan’t.” • He slipped hi?, arms around her again, but she moved resolutely away. “I must. I shall be sorry for ever and ever afterwards if I don’t. It’s been the dream of my life to wear a ducal coronet.” “Nonsense!” he said sternly. Lady Joan threw herself petulantly down on the sofa. “Oh, you don’t know a woman’s mind,” she moaned. “Yes, I do. I know your mind is weighing love against social ambi tion and I know love will weigh down the scales.” , “You don’t know hqw weak we sometimes are,” she went on, unheed ing. “It’s foolish and horrid and t wicked, but if I marry any one but the duke now I shall make him wretched.” “I will chance it.” Four hours later Lady Joan, exquis itely gowned, went up the staircase at Mrs. Tattersley-Smythe’s. She had only been a widow for a year, and al ways wore white or mauve still be cause she knew it suited her better than anything else. Her beautiful face was flushed with triumph, dia monds sparkled in her hair, and at her, breast. It took a long time to get up the staircase, but she did not mind, be cause the duke was at her side. When they reached the top he was obliged to leave her, because of an important debate in the house of lords. j He said something to her in a low I tone, which no one else could hear, ‘ and lingered reluctantly, but he was a man who always prided himself on doing his duty to his country. When he had gone, Wheatley ap peared. “Don’t come near me,” she cried, petulantly. “He’s coining to-morrow morning at 11 o’clock for my answ r er; I can never forgive you for this after noon.” Wheatley raised his eyebrows in credulously, whijh increased her an noyance. “I hate you,” she said, vehemently. “What time do you leave this crush?” he asked her carelessly. “I ordered my brougham for 10:30. I want to get to the opera for the last act and then go on to the countess’ ball. Now go and talk to someone else. A dear friend has just told me our names begin to be bracketed, and one can’t be too careful.” * * * * They seemed a long while getting to Covent Garden. She looked out of the window. Ev erything was strangely dark outside, and they seemed to be traveling with unusual speed. “Where are you going?” she asked, but no answ r er came to her repeated summons. Lady Joan became suddenly uneasy. Horrid stories about people going sud denly mad flashed through her mind. “Stop!” she cried. “Stop at once. Do you not hear?” The man looked round, drew up the car and sprang dow r n. Under the chauffeur’s cap she recognized Wheat ley’s face. “You!” she cried with sudden glad relief. “Oh, I was so frightened. I feel safe now you’re here. But why are you driving my brougham? Where are you taking me? Surely it is some trick.” “Lady Joan,” he answered quietly, “I told you this afternoon you should not marry the duke.” “What do you mean?” she asked. “Are you running aw T ay with me?” “Something rather like it.” “How dare you;” she cried passion ately. “How dare you!” “A man dares anything when he loves as I do. I love you with my whole soul,” he went on boldly. “I would do or dare anything to win you. I hoped if I could get you away alone somewhere you might listen to me be fore you promised the duke.” “How dare you,” she said again. “Lady Joan,” he answered coolly, “I dare anything, as I have told you.” “You are very cruel,” and there was a sob in her voice. “You think you will compromise me and the duke will hear and won’t marry me.” “Upon my soul I had no such thjught,” he said hoarsely. “Shall I take you home or to the countess’ ball?” he asked in a low tone. “Home at once,” she answered. “He closed the window, mounted the driver's seat, turned the car round and drove back to tow r n. When the brougham stopped in Park street, Lady Joan sprang lightly out and ran up the steps without speaking; but when she reached the top she looked back anxiously. “Aren’t you coming in?” “I think not.” He stood and watched her until the door opened, then bared his head and walked quickly away. All the next day and the next and the next Lady Joan was watching and waiting for a visitor who never came. At last she could bear it no longer and sent a messenger boy with a note to Wheatley’s chambers: “I have refused the duke.” NEW DAIRY SHOW CLASS Premium for Cows Under Supervision cf Experiment Station. Milwaukee, Sept. 13. —Anew com petitive class has been created for the National Dairy show to be held in the Auditorium on Oct. 14-24, there being offered a premium for cows which have completed a year’s record under supervision of a state agricultural ex periment station. It is proposed to allow IGO points for conformation as ordinarily judged in the show ring. To this there will be added 1 point for each twenty pounds of fat produced above the mini mum of 250 pounds for the cow that is two years old when her test, is begun, minimum requirments to be increased one-tenth of a pound for each day of age above two years, making a mini mum requirement of 360 pounds at the age of five years. The cow that has produced 560 pounds would have an excess of 200 pounds above minimum requirement of 360, which would give a credit of ten pounds to he added to her allowance on conformation. The animal with highest total score will he awarded first place. 1 EXTORTION CASE APPEALED Farmer James Albert Allen Makes Mo tion for New Trial. Waukesha, Wis., Sept. 14. —James Albert Allen, a farmer residing near Honey Creek, Walworth county, was convicted in municipal court on a charge of threatening with intent to extort money. His attorney moved for anew trial. Allen, who formerly resided near North Prairie, was charged with hav ing written a letter to Henry Burnell, a wealthy farmer residing near North Prairie, in which he threatened to bum his buildings unless he deposited S3OO in S2O bills in a pocketbook under a certain poplar tree.

How that towel first happened to be made in the form which toss proved so profitable to its makers is the subject of an amusing legend. It savors strongly of belonging to the "too good to be true" genus of anec dotes and is as follows: Once tile machinery in the towel fac tory. busily engaged in turning out a very conventional brand of towel, sud denly went wrong and began practi cally to go backward. There was much excitement. Eventually the ma chinery was chastised and set to rights again. But—it was discovered that the tow els turned out during that interval of mechanical anarchy were of a texture quite unrivaled for use as bath tow els. At once the machinery was set going backward again and has been traveling in that direction ever since, to the great delight of the stockholders in the towel company. New York Times. When Linen Is Translucent. The whiteness and opacity of dry linen, as of writing paper, are due mainly to the fact of repeated reflec tions at the surface, so that the light is wasted in these reverberations before it can reach to any depth The body of liueu is a uetwork of transparent fibers no! in optical contact, which intercept the light by repeatedly reflexing it. Now. if the interstices of these fibers are filled by a body of the same re fra.' tive index as the fibers themselves the reflexion of the surface is destroyed and the linen is rendered more trans parent. Water does this; hence linen when wet is darker, but more trans lucent, just as is the oiled paper used for tracings by architects and engi neers. The .same holds good with ordi nary glass aud ground glass, the re peated reflections of the latter making it far less transparent. To a similar cause are due the whiteness and opac ity of snow, of salt and of pulverized glass An Entertaining Catbird. Nothing escapes the eye of our pet catbird, for he is curiosity personi fied. He wants to know the why aud wherefore of everything that is a lit tle strange and does not rest until he has found out. When let out in a room he will carefully examine every nook and corner. He is an inveterate joker and delights to play jokes on his fellow prisoners, while his sense of humor is almost human at times. The pincushion is a constant wonder and delight to him. He flies to it as soon as let out of his cage and either pulls the pins all out or drives them into the cushion as far as possible. If he pulls them out. he hops to the edge of the table and drops them on the floor, flirting his tail and uttering a note of great satisfaction when they strike the floor.—Suburban Life. How He Felt. He was an Englishman of the ultra sort and recently arrived, but he was striving strenuously to catch up with American idioms aud New York slang. He had made some progress. He loomed up in the breakfast room of his hotel the other morning after a too convivial evening and encountered one of his companions. “How do you feel, old chap?” asked the latter “Feel?” repeated the Englishman. “Feel? Oh. yes, I see what you mean, old fellow. Well, really, don’t you know, I feel like one and six.” “Like wffiat?” “Like one and six, as you chaps say here. No! Hold on, there! I mean 30 cents, you know; feel like 30 cents Yes.”—New York Globe. Convenient. “Providence.” said the deacon, “sho' do look after de cullud race.” “How come?” demanded Brother Dickey. “Well, hit’s disaway: De nigger baby, ez dey say. walk too soon.” “Sho do!” assented Brother Dickey. “Dat makes him bowlegged.” “Now you talkin’!” “An’ bowlegs is de mos’ convenient est legs in de worl’ fer climbin’ a tree w’en a possum’s on de top limb!”—Ex change. A Brief Introduction. Mark Twain said the only introduc tion to a literary audience that seemed to him the right word in the right place, a real inspiration, was as fol lows: “Ladies and gentlemen, I shall not waste any unnecessary time in the in troduction. 1 don't know anything about this man—at least I only know two things about him. One is that he has never been in prison, and the other is I can’t see why he hasn’t.” An Illustration. “Now. Harold.” said the teacher to a small but unusually bright pupil, “give an illustration of the superiority of mind over matter.” After a moment’s reflection Farold replied: “I have to mind you. That's what is the matter.”—Chicago News Alice Alias Aiys. Mr. Squiggs— What’s the little Nu rox girl's name? 1 couldn’t catch it when her mother introduced,us. Mrs Squiggs—Plain Alice, only her moth er’s trying to pronounce it so you'li spell it “Alys.’’-Philadelphia Bulletin Both on the Line. “The artist over the way was boast ing to me that his work is now being hung on the line.” “Humph!
