Upon the Threshold.
If we believe that life is worth liv
ing, our belief helps to create that
fact, for faith Is in matters of the
spirit ail that courage Is ln practical
affairs. To Jane and Cluny this be
lief was not rifcfleult, for limitation
always works for happiness, and dur
ing the ensuing year life kept within
the bounds of their mutual probation
and of Cluny's military duties, was
full of happy meetings and partings:
days In which I.ove waited on Duty,
and again, days in which Love was
lord of every hour; when they wander
ed together In the Park like two
happy children, or, If the weather
was unfit, sat dreaming in the stately
rooms of Sandys about the little gray
house ln Fifeshlre, which was to be
their own sweet home.
So the weeks and months went by,
and though they were not alike, they
had that happy similitude which
"I wish to see your
leaves little to chronicle. Jane's chief
excitements came from her visits to
Mary Cromwell and Matilda de Wick.
The affection between Jane and
Matilda had the strong root of habit
as well as of Inclination. They could
not be happy if they were long apart.
Jane visited frequently at Jevery
House, and Matilda quite as fre
quently at Sandys.
One morning ln the spring of 1653,
Jane was returning from a two days'
visit to the Cromwells. The air was
so fresh and balmy she went to Jev
ery House, resolved to ask Matilda
to drive in the Park with her. As
she went up-stalrs she wondered what
mood she would find Matilda in, for
there was a certain mental pleasure
in the uncertainty of her friend's tem
per. She found her lying upon a sofa
in her chamber, her little feet, pret
tily shod in satin, showing Just below
her gown; her bauds clasped above
her head, her long black hair scatter
ed loosely on the pillow. She smiled
languidly as Jane entered, and then
"I have been expecting you, Jane.
I coud not keep the thought of you
out of my mind, and by that token I
knew you were coming. Pray, where
have you been? Or, where are you
"I have been spending two days
with the Cromwells, and the morning
Is so fair, I wondered If you would not
drive an hour ln the park. Do you
know that Cymlln arrives from Ire
land to-day? He would think the
Journey well taken, if he saw you at
the end of it"
"You are a little late with your
news, Jane. That is one of your
faults. Cymlln was here last night.
He spent a couple of hours with me,"
then she smiled so peculiarly, Jane
could not help asking her:
"What Is there ln your way of smil
ing, Matilda? I am sure it means a
story of some kind."
"I shall have to tell you the story,
for you could never guess what that
smile was made of. Forst, however,
what did you see and hear at the

"Jane Swaffbam, have you no fresh

bosom many sheets of paper tied to
gether with a gold thread. "I had

hand of Stephen, and I may as well

friendship from fraying. Now, I must
tell you something concerning my
self. I am going to France."
"France!" cried Jane ln amazement.
"Yes, France. I have persuaded my
uncle that he ought to go there, and
look after his affairs. I have persuad

my uncle to go without her, and they

"To-morrow, if Stephen be ready.

himself out of the room in a passion
ere I could find a word to throw after
him. Then I got up and went to a
mirror and looked at my ears, and
they were scarlet, and my cheeks
matched them, and for a moment 1
was ln a towering rage. I sat down,
I cried, I laughed, I was amazed, I
was, after a little while, ashamed, and
finally I came to a reasonable temper
and acknowledged I had been served
exactly right. For I had no business
to put my wicked little tongue in my
cheek, because a brave gentleman
could not crook his leg like a dancing
master. Are you laughing, Jane?
Well, I must laugh, too. I shall laugh
many a time when I think of Cymlln's
two big bands over my ears. Had he
kissed me afterward, I would have for
given him I think."
"I cannot help laughing a little, Ma
tilda, but I assure you Cymlln is suf

than you are."
"I am not suffering at all. This
morning I admire htm. There Is not

Many letters were promised on both
sides, and Jane was glad to notice the
eagerness and hope ln her friend's
voice and manner. Whatever her
words might assert It was evident
she looked forward to a great Joy.
And as long as she was with Matilda,
Jane let this same spirit animate her,
her ride home, however, was set to a
more anxious key. She was a little
angry also. Why should Stephen de
Wick intrude bis love upon her?
Twice already she had plainly told
him that his suit was hopeless, and
she did not feel grateful for ft af
fection that would not recognlxe Its
limits, and was determined to lorce
itself beyond thwm.
She entered Sandys with the spring
all about her; her fair face rosy with
the fresh wind, and her eyes full of
the sunshine. Cymlln and Stephen
were sitting by the fireside talking of
Irish hounds and of a new bit for res
tive horses which Cymlln had In
vented. When Jane entered, Cymlln and
Stephen both rose to meet her. Cym
lln was kind with the condescension
of a brother. He spoke to her as he
spoke to creatures weaker than him
self, and kissed her with the air of a
king kissing a subject he loved to
honor. Then he made an excuse to
the stables and gave Stephen his op
portunity. The young man had kept
Ms eye fixed on the beautiful face and
slender form of the girl he loved. He
went to her and clasped her hands
and said with a passionate eagerness,
"Jane, dearest! I have come again to
ask you to marry me. Say one good,
kind word. When you were not as
high as my heart, you did promise to
be my wife. I vow you did!"
"Stephen, I knew not then what

I am already plighted."
"To Lord Neville. You shall never

hundred and fifty women students

to the Swiss capital for two reasons
the lack of means of study in their

conditions under which degrees can be
secured are less severe than at the

Valuable Paper Process.
The Oxford Press Syndicate values
the formula formalting the thin tough
paper used in printing their Bibles
at more than a. million dollars, it bar
ing cost them over twenty-five years
of hard work and $100,000 . In cash to
discover and perfect the process. Even
more valuable, probably, Is the secret
of the manufacture of the paper upon
which the notes of the Eank of Eng
land are printed,, which belongs, as is
pretty generally known to the Portals
of Laveratoke, who have accumulated
a fortune from it within two genera
tions. Jack London has a new story In the
January number of the Century, en
titled "The Sea Wolf," while Maeter
linck, the author of the notable book,
"The Bee," contributes a paper en
titled "Our Frlejnd, the Dog," and Rev.
Kkai Kawaguctil, a Japanese Buddhist
priest, gives a 'description of the Thib
etan capital, the "forbidden city."
There are an unusual number of good
short stories In this issue, while the
illustrations are of a high order,
among them being a number of hith
erto unpublished "old masters."
Sport In Peccary Hunting.
Peccary hunting Is usually both dan
gerous and fatiguing. About ten or
twelve dogs are set upon the trail of
a drove, the huntsmen following a
best they may on foot When the dogs
come up with the peccaries the little
animals turn to bay in a closely
packed, squealing crowd. Often the
veteran boars of the herd rush out
upon their canine enemies and it is
seldom that a hunt passes without one
or more dogs being killed or badly In
jured. Careless and Inexperienced
huntsmen are also liable to be badly
mauled, for the peccaries seem In
capable of fear and rush madly at aay
moving object, be it dog or man.
