When It's Werth While. (Copyright, 1906, by Daily Story Pub. Co.) "When are you ever going to make good. When are you ever going to do anything? When are you ever going to Justify your birth and breeding and ancestry? And the girl stamped her pretty foot hard on the yielding turf. The big fellow 1n the gray outing flannels settled back in the hammock and turned his patrician face to the questioner. "By Jove! you're getting prettier every day, coz," he said.' "I don't want your compliments or your praise, Herbert Rollins," she re* plied with blazing eyes. "I want you to answer my question." "Which one?" he asked, smiling in the most provokingly indifferent man ner. "Any of them; all of them," replied the girl. "They are all one." The man drew "the makings" from his pocket and began slowly to roll a cigaret. "What's the use?" he asked. "The use of what?" she demanded. "Oh, of pawing around trying to do unnecessary things for a reward. I don't want?" "Unnecessary things," she repeated indignantly. "What do you mean by that? Here you are getting along toward thirty-" "Twenty-eight," he murmured as he lit the cigaret. "■-And equipped with every kind of ability and connections through which you could get a start in any line you might select," she went on, not heeding his interruption, "and yet you never have made an effort to justify your existence." "You forget my football record," he laughed. ''Yes, there it is," she replied, "foot rowing, debating—everything ball, useless, but nothing in the serious af fairs of life." "My pretty cousin, I again ask, what is the use?" said the man. "Use!" she exclaimed. "What are you living for?" "I ask that with great emphasis every now and then," he replied sol emnly. "And I'm blessed If I can get further with the solution than the proposition: To feel good and enjoy all the good things the gods have pro vided so bountifully." The girl looked at him scornfully. "Now, look here, Nell," he said, throwing the cigaret away. "I have an ample fortune, thanks to the wisdom and Industry of my respected grand father. I don't spend my income— can't spend it. Why in the name of goodness should I bother my mind with money-making? Why should I harry myself with all the work neces sary to a successful professional ca reer when I do not need the emolu ments which would crown it in the veiy doubtful event that I succeeded— especially when there are so many go«d fellows who were less successful in their choice of a grandfather and who are compelled to do these things in order to live? In fact, I think it would be beastly for me to go In and crowd with them for a success that means so much to them and absolutely nothing to me. I am not a bad sort, Nell. I am not hurting anybody any that I ran see, and I'll be hanged if I see the necessity of all this effort you keep talking about. There is np in centive." "Incentive!" exclaimed the girl very pale. "I'll t ill you one thing, Herbert, it has been an understood thing In the family that I ?m to marry you. I want to tell you now that I never will marry such a useless butterfly as you in the world. I'll marry a coal heaver first." Rollins looked rieadlly at her for a minute. Then he wose and took her unwilling hand. "Perhaps It is best so, Nell," he said gravely. "I don't know but we would worry each other Intolerably. It will raise Cain with Uncle Charley and your mother, but-" "What Is that, Bert?" Interrupted the girl, pointing to the surf. He turned lazily and looked over the sun-lit water. Instantly his entire attitude changed. He was alive with Interest, with pur pose, with power. "Great Heavens, It is Julia!" he ex claimed. "And she Is out far over her depth and cannot swim a stroke. I have been teaching her to float and she's let the current carry her out. If she tries to touch bottom she'll get frightened and drown." While he was talking he had peeled to his trousers and undershirt and pulled off his shoes, and before Miss Nellie fairly knew what was going on he had plunged into the surf and was making great strokes toward the tiny hqad bobbing in the water. As the girl on the shore watched him do these things with the rapidity of thought and noted his splendid self poise and perfect proportions a grate ful sense of satisfaction pervaded her. "All he needs is the spur of neces sity," she said. "Aad I'll see that he gets that. My, but he's a splendid fel low." I Of a sudden the girl floating far out gave a piercing shriek and the head disappeared. Rollins had nearly reached her. He shouted to her to float for a minute and he would reach her. But the panic was in her, and she heard nothing. As she reappeared on the surface she shrieked again. Out from the cottages and from the hotel people rushed to the beach. Nellie held her breath in horror. Rollins was fairly leaping through the water. 1 "I never saw swimming ll\te that," Bald one of the men who was helping shove the emergency boat into the water. "I think he'll get her," Nellie looked at the man and smiled ,, ...... gratefully. All about the people were ( commit tog on *e force aud power of tue man who seemed to be tnlrly shooting through the water. Ah, she comes to the surface the third time, but this time no sound escapes her. As she sinks a moan goes out all along the shore. But that instant the strong form of the swimmer reaches the spot where she went down, and he, too, disappems beneath the surface. There is a heart-breaking minute c r two and then the strong swimmer comes up and clutched tightly by the hair he has the form of the insensible girl. It was a long and a hard swim, with the heavy burden, before the men with the boat picked them up. And when they reached the shore a dainty girl stood clear down to the edge where the swell of the water washed her ankles. As Rollins stepped from the boat unsteady from his great exertion she cried: "Bert, you are splendid. 1 take it all back. You are the hero of my dreams." He regarded her inscrutably for a moment. Then, leaving the uncon scious form of the girl in the boat tc be cared for by the willing bystanders, he took Nellie's hand and led her back to the trees. "Nell," he said, brokenly, "don't you see? It's hard to explain—but—but— you released me a few moments ago I ain't your kind. I've known It for years. You like me now, for a minute because I happen to have been able to do a little something spectacular. But that is not the basis of love." He paused a minute and looked a little sheepish. Then he threw back his square shoulders and faced her. "Anyway," he said, "I am going to marry Julia Manning next month. I— you—it—oh, thunder, good-bye." And he fled. LEADS ALL INDUSTRIES. Manufacture of Foods Far in Advance of Other Lines of Commercial Business. According to the latest United States census, the manufacture of foods (ex cluding liquors) leads all other manu facutring industries, the value of the annual output being $2,277,702,000, or 17.6 per cent, of the total value of the manufactured products of the United States. This is $500,000,000 greater than the value of the Iron and steel industry output, according to the Re view of Reviews. It is a wonderful example of the growth of factory methods in an industry once (less than 50 years ago) to a large extent do mestic. Regarding the expenditures for food we have but to take into consideration the well-known actual statistical facts that nine-tenths of the people of this and other lands spend from 50 to 65 per cent, of their Income (estimated for the great majority of American families to be not over $600 yearly) for food alone, not including its prep aration for the table at that. Dr. Ed ward Atkinson's estimate of $1.60 per week, spent for food and drink for each adult, is surely moderate enough. This, upon an adult population basis of 60,000,000, gives us a weekly ex penditure of $90,000,000, which In a year would amount to the gigantic to tal of $4,680,000,000. It is probably an underestimate to say that $6,000,000, 000 is expended annually for food and drjnk our approximate 80,000,000 pop ulation. Take one very small item alone. According to an estimate made several years ago we bay 118,500,000 pounds of baking powder per annum, at a cost of about $35,500,000. It Is an amazing fact that although the cost of food makes up so large a part of the cost of living and plays so Important a part In economic and so ciological problems, the most Intelli gent people know less concerning the elementary facts of food. Its composi tion, sources, preparation for market, nutritive value, adulteration, mis branding, etc., than of almost any oth er necessity of life. Calling the Landlady. A man's curiosity got the better of him in a Back Bay lodging house one day recently and he paid for it, as is usually the case. He said he hadn t seen the landlady during his stay oi three months, the rents being paid to the housekeeper, and a friend whom he made the remark 3aid that 3he was around about every day—iti fact, he wouldn't be surprised if sht was in the house then. To test his confidence he was will ing to wager the cigars that she was there, and his doubting friend consid ered it too easy a thing to lose, so he said: "Agreed." Then the man v'to was certain proceeded to win eaeilv Selzing a plate from the table, he dropped It upon the floor, and m l«ss than a minute the woman of the house was on the scene inquiring about the cause of the noise. The doubter was satisfied. to As She Saw It. Miss Keramicks had been arranging her antique treasures, and stood gaz ing up at the gems that adorned her walls, when Aunt Keziah appeared. "Come right in here, aunty!" she exclaimed. "I want you to see my china collection. I've bought some new pieces lately—aren't they love ly?" and she clasped her hands ecstat ically. Aunt Keziah adjusted her spectacles and tilted her head at the proper an gle, examining one dish after an other with tedious care. As her eye Ml on her niece's especial pride her forehead took on an extra wrinkle. "Oh, my!" she cried, "why don't you pnt this cracked platter more out o' sight? Or throw the old thing away!

When a woman is troubled with pain or weight in loins, backache, frequent, painfol or scalding urination, swelling of limbs or feet, swelling under the eyes, an uneasy, tired feeling in the region of the kidneys or notices a sediment in the urine, she should lose no time in commencing treatment with Lydia E.

" I cannot e xpr e s s the terrible suffering I had to endure. A derangement of the female organs developed nervous prostration and a serious kidney trouble. The doctor attended me for a year, but I kept getting worse, until I was unable to do anything, and I made — my mind I could not five. I finally deck— to try Lydia E.

Hall Caine's fellow-Manxmen s» cured a representative constitution from the British Imperial government In 1866, and Imperial Interests have since been looked after by a deemster and vicar general appointed by the home office. The house of keys, or lower •• branch of the Manx legisla ture, says the New York Times, always been opposed to such appoint ments, and now its radical wtna threatens to deprive the Imperial gov ernment of any hand at all In the ad ministration of Manx affairs, with the exception of a nominal wield of the British scepter. A significant note from the British home office was recently read In the house of keys. It "requested and re quired" the loyalty of Manxmen to the constitution of 1866, and added that the British government oould not consider for a moment the question of home rule for the Isle of Man, as such an autonomous situation was a menace to imperial interests. More over, continued agitation would only lead to one thing—the abrogation of the constitution and complete annexa tion. Japanese Build Church. The first Japanese Congregational church In America was organized in San Francisco recently, largely through the efforts of Rev. Mr. Kozakl. Much is expected from the pioneer congre gation in advancing Christian work among the Japanese on our Pacific coast.
