Perhapa is part because it had ceased to be romantic When first Andulasia Stebbias had come out from Illinois to lire with her mother aad atepfathcr on the Nebraska prairie it was considered by tha neighboring farmer folk quite proper, probable and desirable that Ira Harris, whose half section j ined that of her relatives, should fall in lore with her which he promptly did. Ira was thirty, stoat, stolid. loutith, methodiaL lie was a successful man. This U hardly to be explained of a per aoa with the characteristics mentioned unless one includes selfishness. To be supremely selfish is so frequently to be successful. At Ue time of their meet In (j Andulasia was t-entyeta. There are women of tweuty-scven and women of tweoty-ft. She was one of the latter. With her square figure, her unequivocal complexion, her dull brown hair, and her calculating- eyes she looked her years. One would never excuse her mistakes on the ground of Immaturity. One could nerer condone them on that of impulse. Indeed, to attribute to her certain errors would be subtle flattery. She was not tha kind of a woman who is ordinarily sub jected to temptation. Harris, however, accepted her pro pinquity and her affection much as he accepted the drought or the price of hogs, lie was willing she should de cline the company of other men on his account lie reasoned that if her step father, old man Solveriny, were to clear oil the mortgage on his place and die, and if the two sickly young Sol Teriny s died also, she would be wealthy In her own right, as wealth Is estimated In the Philistine West Consequently it might prove a prudent proceeding to wait for Andulasia.'

The agent did so. Harris joined in the games of the children. He made himself clumsily delightful. Soda water was unknown in that particular small town, but Ira did tha next best thing.

Harris had several letters from Iowa. The contents of the letters were chiefly relative to bogs, and pasturage, and baled hay, and discounts. Ira did not actually dread Andulasia's return, but he would have preferred to postpone it Indefinitely. To be sure, they had con sidered the possibility of an engage ment once, but he had never been really engaged to her. He never could be now. It was only right she should understand that She was a sensible woman. She would understand that in such a matter a man had a right to please himself.

Then there was only Ira on one farm, and Andulasia and her mother on the other. No apparent od- sUcle intervened. Btill Ira am not speak, and it was seven years since Andulasia had come from Illinois, lie frequently visited her, helped her, and deferred to her. He carried her but ter and eirgs Into town and "traded thun; when the circus was In the coun ty seat, he drove her there; he took her Into the side show where the fat woman was on exhibition: he bought her pink lemonade, and peanuts, and hot eandv made on the grounds. Ue escorted her to the merry-go-round at Mahaska and rode side by side with her on the spotted ponies. He drove her Into town twice a week. They at tended prayer meeting together. They both professed religion at tne revival. He bouL'ht eleven tickets for her crazy nuilt raffle. He was in all things her constant and dependable cavalier, but he never once mentioned marriag never once. In this manner eight more years mused. She was forty-two. Ue was fortv-nve. He was stouter, more stolid She had some wrinkles, goia numgs in her teeth, a reputation for irasclbil- also a comfortab'e bank account One day Ira brought Andulasia a let ter. It waa from her mother s Drotner who lived in Iowa. He was dying. He wished to see her. She handed Ira the letter. "Shall I iror she asked. Harris deliberated. "Hashemoncyr he questioned. "Yea" "Then ao." He saw her oft the net day. She wore a new dress that didn't fit in the back. The skirt was too short at the sides. Her shoes were dusty. The heat had taken the curl out of her bangs. She had forgotten to bring the !.. nt ihmois skin with the powder nn it. which she was in the habit of ti.inir surrentitiously. Her nose shone as if oollshed. She wore kid gloves which were too large. The train was late. As they walked up and down the platform she talked to Ira steadily and monotonously. She him about the brindle cow, and advised him concerning a piece of his fence which needed repairing.

It was well known he was conducting the yard for an Euglish firm ou a salary. To compare Vail to him Harris who was so "well fixed!" There could be no comparison, One evening in late summer, when Ira was jogging into town, he settled mentally all minor matters to hts sat isfaction. Ue decided to whom ha would rent his farm, the kind of house he would build in town, the direction bis wedding journey would take, the brotherly letter he would leave for Andulasia, and the invitation bo would send the lumberman to be present at his wedding. He dismounted at the post oulce, which was.also the general store and tin shop. There was a letter for him a letter from Andulasia. Dbab Iba: Thing Is all upset Uncle John died a woek ago.

Up-town Miss Me bums learned several things, chief of which was that Ira Harris had transferred his affec tions to Miss Alys Lane.

"I I was figgerin' some on it," he avowed. Ue drove Andulasia to her home, but she did not again broach the subject He went baek to town that evening. He met Alys at an ice-cream sociable. lie gained grace of heart and pro posed. She laughed gently. "I am honored, Mr. , Harris, of course," she said. "But I always sup posed you were engaged to Miss Steb- bins. I am to marry Mr. van at unrist- mas." The following evening, Ira, feeling exceedingly depressed, went to call on Anduls sia. He found her talki ng with brother farmer, a widower with three children. Ue asked to speak to her a moment alone. 'Factia, Andulasia," he said, "it's yon I want I fancied for awhile I'd like that silly little thing.

The news that come in on the noon train, about the will being found, and me getting seven thousand dollars, and-" "Andulasial What a fine woman she was. Why had he never noticed that fact before? "It's true!" she declared trium- Dhnntly. "Hut," he fairly howled, "I've been meaning for fifteen years to marry you, Andulasia! "Then, why didn't you?" inquired Andulasia.

His widow was left pennW lroa, with large plantations ioeam bered with mortgages, and a hondreJ or more emancipated negroes who had ceased to be her property- Her business affairs were misman aged by agents and lawyers, aad she lost one plantation after another. Her health failed, and In her oid age a lie became wholly dependent upon one of her former slaves. This negro was grateful to her for having given him a start after the war. Learning from experience that she could not manage her plantations sue- eesifully, the had rewarded the fideli ty of a small group of emancipated slaves by deeding over to them out right small farms. Tula negro received iu this way a farm of twenty-six acres with a cabin. lie prospered from the outset He made a living out of his ground, and saved every year a little money. In the eourse of a few years he bought another farm aad doubled his re sources. Other purchases followed, until he was a truck farmer with eou- siderable wealth. He did not forget his old plantation mistress in his prosperity. When she had lost all her property, and there was no other friend to take care of her in her old age, tli is negro rescued her from destitution. Ue became her most faithful friend. Both are still living. On the first day of every month the negro farmer draws a ciieck for one hundred dol lars, and sends It to the aged lady whose slave he was ia boyhood. At first she was unwilling to become bis pensioner, but he pressed help upon her with tears in his eyes, telling her that he would never have got on in the world it she had not generously aided hiin by giving him the first farm. His bounty is now her only recourse. and no millionaire in the land la hap pier than he is when "pay-day" comes around, and he can send his check tc his kind-hearted "old misses." The other negroes whom she be friended after the war have been either improvident or ungrateful, but one at least had the energy and thrift re quired for making him a well-to-do farmer, and the heart to take compas sion on a friendless and unfortunate woman who had once been kind to him. This Is a true story, which Illustrates the tender feeling sometimes existing between the negro and his former mas ter, and the gratitude which good treatment may Inspire even in a de spised race.

This has reminded me of a similar Incident that occurred to a bird last summer, near Bowline Oreen, Ky. It was a common or crow black bird, and was seen hanging by the neck from the limb of a tall tree over hanging the road. Whether In flying with a long grass or string it became entangled with It or In what way It got caught ia the noose and met its death, is a matter of conjecture.

A conspicuous difference between the English and Chinese dramas is ex plained by .the fact that whereas in the former love holds a leading part, tn the latter it is relegated to a secondary place. In England it is a passion; in China a sentiment only; hence the thousand intrigues love gives rise tc are, In the latter country, either thrown into the shade or tabooed entirely. Without their ardent passions many of our theatrical productions would lose their interest and most of their merit An English, or, to use a wider term, a European play-goer, requires a due quantity of love. In China, on the other hand, this demand finds little echo, since love there is not the chief theme of bard and painter. Conveu tion and the strength of parental au thority have crushed, in a great meas ure, those amorous longings which exist in the human heart; and as love. jourNhip and matrimony in the far last are even more prosaic than in onr part of the world, the first of those te&Hnga, if handled a passion, can ant powerfully arrest the attention, ft toe m ultima .ne;e!jiri ttamri Two players from the opera were the perlormers; tne court of the museum waa filled . with hearers. Wonderful, is It not that horns two thousand years old, burled for long centuries in peat bogs, should, after this long silence, still be capable of giving out clear, ringing even sweet tones? The conditions In which these lurs are found are most suggestive always in peat bogs, usually in pairs. Una could not be the result of accident Other objects are found purposely laid away in the same manner; thus ten bronze hemispherical plates were found at one spot; nine fine b.-onze axes, all of one form, at another.

After this it moulted, losing about all its feathers at one time. Its eyes then became inflamed, and the eyeball like drops of water, finally closed and the bird became to tally blind.
