LAKE LEVEL IS HIGHER. More Water For Navigation Expected aa the Season Advances. Re-cent rainfall all ver the Lake Su perior elrainape seethm has brought about a slight raise in the level of the lake ami it is believed the turning point has becrl reached and that the unpre-e-edent low water level eif April will gradually be overcome. The kike is still a foot below, normal hut this is always the low season eif the ye-ar and the water rises generally from April to August or September. The low stage has caused considera ble uneasiness among shippers, much dre-ilping in slips and along eloeks that have; been neglected, and many e-n-e.uirie-s of the Duliith geiveinment en gineers regarding the future and how marine work was to be conducted. In the latter part of April five dredges e ngaged in harbor work em the anchor age basin were taken eiff nt one time and put to weirk at various slips and (hanne-ls around the harbor. In response to an anxious enepiiry from Ashland, John A. Ifcirling eif the Duluth e-orps of engineers replied as follows: "In re-pa rd to the stage of the water It Is eertnin to raise from now em, as Is the case every year, and reach the highest point for the season In August eir September. We cannot say Just how much It will rise during this time ns that will depend upon the amount eif rainfall and evaporation, but I probable It will get to be nbout a foot higher than It Is now, At any rnli von will have better water feir navigation as the season advances.

Hanker Pellman endeavors to see L'recd. . . . - CHAPTER VI. AS usual, it was tbo poor that puffered quickest nnd most Phillip on u day especially prolific of new chnmpngne fed paupers was surprised to receive u visit from Klslo White. Sho was palo and nervous. Much worry bad caused bor to lose sleep. "I bavo couio to tell you my troubles, as I bave always done," 6he said. "Let's bear ull nbout It," Invited Phillip cordially. "I dou't think my little sister ever came to me iu the old days that I didn't help ber out of ber dllllcultles if possible." "Indexed, no," she said gratefully. "You were the finest sort of big broth er." She lingered a triflo upon that word, unconsciously emphasizing It ever so slightly. I'hllip outwardly accepted the word as a pleasant expression of confidence. Inwardly be winced at It. "Who has broken your doll this time?" be asked, with a smile. "It Is weirso than a broken doll," sh said. "When you were In Hampton you spoke nbout securing employment for father." "I bave thought nbout It a reat many times," Phillip replied, "but out side of bis trade he has so little adapt ability that I could not think of a place for blm." Again Elsie claspeel her hands and plunged horoie'ally Into hor errand. "He must be put in a position to earn some money. Wo are really In a desperate condition, Thllllp. Vester elay we received notice that wo must give up our home, and we must move out by Saturday. Wo shall lose our furniture at the same time. Until re cently we had credit at the butcher's nnd the grocer's, but that has been cut off. Grace's husband is wandering Rom, vj;o out west penniless and bunting for work, and Grace and ber two little children have come to us at a time when we can do nothing for them, yet. they nro ours, and we must take care of them. Grace is not strong. Of the seven of us In the house only father and I are physically able to earn n. living. The time has come when we must find work." She did not tell him of their actual hunger, but Phillip, leoklng nt ber drawn face, could guess nnd was shocked. lie longed to take her In his arms nnd comfort ber, but bo did not. "Really, Elsie, I didn't know, I couldn't believe, that the case was so desperate," ho said with contrition. "First of nil. you must let mo make your father a loan sufficient to cover all needs, tho payments on tho house nnd furniture, the little outstanding bills, enough to cure Ed nnd to run on. No one outside tho family Las n better right than I to do this, and no one woulel le so glad." "I know," she returned. "You are ery delicate, too, to offer to make tho Joan to father, but I'd rather you woulel lend It to me, for I bavo deter mined to becomo the business man of the family." "Just ns you like," agreed Phillip. "How much shall you need?". Sbo bandeel him a little slip of paper upon which tho amounts were already set down nnd totaled. Tho rum was rltlfully small In view of all tho vast sums which Phillip bad nt bis disposal. "I don't think It wise for you to ft'ciflno this to actual necessities," bo Uiged. "It would bo much better to tako a larger sum, ono that would cover nil emergencies." Elsie shook her hend firmly. "No," she said. "I have already allowed a small leeway. Tho less I can make tho burden tho better I shall feel nbout It. for It must nil lo palel back. Please let mo have my own way." "I don't see how I can do otherwise," replied rhllllp. giving her the money. Sho took It, gulping down a llttlo lump which rose In her throat, then said with a pretty little assumption of busi ness: "I want you to write out a note for me to sign." Without protest rhllllp did so and put the note carefully away. "Now we como back to tho question of employment," said ho. "You men tioned a whilo ago your father's gar dening hobby. Do you suppose bo would tako a position in that lino?" ' "A month ago ho would not, but now bo would gratefully. If you can get blm such a placo it would perhaps solvo our problem." "I believe that I fan," mused rbll bp. "Jubt wait a minute," and ho wrote a note, inclosing it in an ad dressed envelope, which ho banded to her. "If your father will take this noto to tho address on the envelope 1 am quite certain they will make a Tlace for blm." t ilJ-dCii.'1 jfjjgw Jiow to thank you," she said, i "You Sylll have to'talie'lt for granted." lie toek her warm hand lu bis own. nnd If in that moment be bad obeyed (ho impulse that was bi his heart, If be Iwul spoken tho words that strovo to rush ujion bin lips, the wholo course of Ms life might bavo been changed for tho better. Rut again ambition, wnlJi primly forbade any ckg upon his movements, interfered, und bo held ber band with the tejuerness of u brother no more! "Really, Elsie, I wish I could have done more for you," he said. "I want you to promlso mo that If yem get Into difficulties of any sort you will let me smooth them ewt for you." "I have no ono clso to go to," the re plied simply. "Do you know how much suffering there is in tbo world?'' sho suddenly asked him. "I supposo there Is a great deal of it." "Do you understand what suffering is?" "I do," ho returned. "I bad my share of it of illness, of poverty, of cold nnd hunger, of uncleanllness, of tho social degradation that belongs with want of money. I know these things not ns one emerging from them, but as ono cast down among them from luxury. Some people that experi ence softens, others It hardens and makes bitter. Sometimes I think it had that latter effect with me." v "It must not be!" she said earnestly, "rhllllp, what has happened to my family has happened to three-fourths of the pcoplo In Hampton, which, as 3'ou may or may not know, is compos ed entirely of poor people, workmen who in better times try to buy their own homes. In that village of four or five thousand people there aro per haps ono half of thcin fnclng actual starvatlou at this minute." "Yes?" inquired Phillip, waiting. "There nre hundreds nnd hundreds of other villages Hko Hampton, wbero thousands upon thousands arc in tho same condition. Things wcro never so bad as they nre now." "Yes?" bo asked again. "They say they say" sho baited nnd stopped, and then, with her face coloring, sho stumbled on "they say that you brought on this panic and that you could stop it. It isn't true, is itr "In a measure I supposo It is," ad mitted Phillip. "Tho condition was like a pile of loose gunpowder at tho -side of a railroad track, where constantly passing engines nro sending up npnrks. One spark was sure to land In that gunpowtler" and explode it. I merely happened to bo the spark, but with no more power than that spark to stop the subsequent destruction." She recoiled from him with dilating eyes. "It Is true, then?" she said. "I suppose It Is, even in tho way you look at It,- but I assure you, Elsie, that it was necessary. Out of this lietter times will result, and better times ceMild not bo reached except through this devastation. It is liko a surgical operation, which, painful nnd cruel as It may seem at the start, is necessary to save the rest of tho body from death nnd decay." She shook her head. "I cannot un derstand It, but then I suppose I could never bavo been a surgeon." He smiled and laid his band upon her shoulder. "No, I dorft think you could." 1 Sho winced under that touch and glance, not becauso they were repul sive to ber oh, not because of that! but becauso they were the touch and glance of a brother. Rensselaer was announced Just then, and tho interview closed. In Phillip's touring car, big Sam up beside tho chauffeur, Kelvin and Rens selaer bowled along a pleasant country road, with tho latter young gentleman In a state of stupefaction. "To To rest Lakes!" Rensselaer ex claimed for at least the twentieth time. "Why, you old fox, you never said a word alsnit ever having known Henry Breed or of ever having been to Forest Lakes!" "I didn't dare," answered rhllllp. "I didn't want my panic to como on too soon, which it would bavo dono bad my connection with Breed been known." "How did you happen to full In with tho old loy?" "Hunted him up!" said Phillip, with sudden fire. "As you know, this same crowd, of whom Pellman was nt that time the bead, letl my father into a carefully prepareel stock deal. It was as deliberate a plucking as any green horn ever got at the bands of a lot of confidence men, nnd it not only broke bis purse, but it broke his heart. It left blm without ambition, nnd when bo dleel bo left mo absolutely penni less. Even ns a boy I planned to get even, but I knew I must wait. Down south the chance camo. I mado that oil strike, then luck poured in on me, and I began nt last to mako a lot of money. One day about a year ago I read in a paper of Breed's anger ngnlnst this snmo Wall street coterie. I had formeel some good acquaintances down there, and among them was a man who knew Breed personally. Ho gavo mo a letter of introduction. I then went to see Breed and proposed this plan. Ho returned nn evasive an swer, nnd I went back south. Shortly after I returned there, however, I dis covered that Breed bad put into opera tion the system by which I suggested bo drain tbo country of Its currency. I discovered, too, that there were spies watching mo and delving into my entire past history. I said nothing, but I mado up my mind then that my time had come. Suro enough. Breed finally sent for me. Ho had employed over fifty men for nearly a year to exnmlno every instant of my career, and he was satisfied. I spent a week at For est Lakes evolving the plan In detail, and you know the rest." "It's a wonderful thing!" declared Rensselaer, with a long breath. "It's a romance!" "There is more romance In modern business lifo than thero was in tho days of lance and shield," declared Phillip. They had now reacbM the stone wall that surrounded Forest Lakes and were admitted unchallenged. At the S m -U JYbk Ins m.e Jbjl lip, .fat. .be was no moro than "within "wuen there was a rustle of silk In tho hall nnd Lillian came eagerly forward to meet blm. "I understand," she said warmly "that you are tho conquering hero." "I have done what I was told to do." "But you have dono it well. Now it is ttmo that you came home' to get your reward." "I have been fairly well rownrded as It Is." he replied. "By the way. I have brought with me an old frlend of yours." Sho turned and almost frowned ns they were Joined by young Rensselaer, who bael stopped a moment to get something from tho ear. "We nro glad to see you ngaln, Mr. Rensselaer," she said. "Mrs. Rens selaer has been expecting you for several days and, like a dutiful nephew, you must pay your respects to ber at once. You will find her In her own apartments." "I will see you later, Bert." Kelvin called after blm ns ho went up tho stairs. Then to Lillian, "Where Is Mr. Breed?" "He Is Just trying to mako tho eighth bole out back of the stables, and I think be must be at about tho hun dredth stroke for it," she laughed, "i will go out nnd bring blm while you remove the dust. Go right up to your old rooms; they have been waiting fur you ever since you wero here tho other time. They were becoming very lone some for you." Sam passed them in the hall with tho luggage. "When you get tbo luggage into Mr. Kelvin's room, Sam," directed Lillian, "you will find Lucy waiting for you In the kitchen." Phillip turned into his apartments with a feeling of relief. He was very glad to rest for awhile from the tur moil of the financial crowd, to leave nil the nervous tension of that tremendous tragedy behind blm. Sam opened the luggage nnd put it away nnd had Just gono down tbo back stairs when thero camo a timid knock at the door. Tlill Hp opened It to a ma lei who had como with towels and stepped back In sur prise. "Elsie!" be cried. 1 "Why, rhllllp!" exclaimed Elsie. "I didn't know you wero to be here." "Nor I you," said he. "How does It como about?" "Thnt letter you gave to father," sho explained. "I came with blm, applied for a place as maid and got It Father Is head garelener, thanks to you, and is perfectly happy. We are both doing very nicely. Did Miss Lillian know that It was you who were to occupy these rooms?" "Why, certainly." replied Phillip. "1 wns hero before." Elslo salel nothing, but she wondered.
