There 4i re about as many ways of spoiling hflraeiers. and Chip, without meaning to do anything of the kind, tried ihem nil. IVartirf. makes perfect, so. in the ourse of time. Chip found himself clearing alxnit .$1 a day, which was a lot of money for anyone to earn in that j ihat the boy had made some pictures inrt of the country. ! v.'hlch were not bail, so within an hour Utile by little he learned that por j Chip was engaged, at the princely sal ..... i t ivnro the most ary of a dollar an hour, to teach Miss nrofllnltl nart of the business, and h M I - - - - - , began to bo smart enough to take the i pictures of pretty girls on credit or for j nothing, trusting to luck to l'md out j which voung man was lirst or most j "gone" on each girl. Then he would (Tev the young man, in strict confi dence, to get him the girl's portrait at lio customary price. Chip tried the system in reverse - lhat is. by "taking some oi the more j popular young men, trusting to work j them off upon sus'-eptible girls, but j -omelov this ldau did not amount to j much. Cither the girls hadn't any money, -which is quite likely, or. still more .....- ly, they didn't want young men's faces b.ully enough to pay for ihem, so Chip gave it up as a bad job and left his lat est plates of young men to be devel oped when he had nothing else to do. Omo of these undeveloped phi t es was ci Crank Wilsey, the best-looking and j Ihr most popular store elerk in the vil- j I.i ge. Almost any girl would pay a j cent a yard extra for material for a calico dress for the plea sun- of pur chasing from Crank Wilsey. nnd she Would wait an hour to be served by Crank rather than buy of the proprie tor himself. Crank was a "great catch" in the es timation of all the girls ami their moth er, and he bocaine nil the more so be cause he de lined to be caught. Suddenly. however. in the way that the t.uexpeeted has of turning up in even the least promising places, something occurred which set all the village girls i( become jealous and envious. Some people who seemed to be rich, for Ihey 'were traveling by carriage, wiih two crvMds in a buggy following, wer' d)(?g('d to stop in the vilage and call :i physician for one of their party, an old lidy. The physician said the invalid mint Test for several days, so there was a lot f scurrying to lind proper accommoda tions for the party, there being no hotel 1n the place. They were finally aci-oni-H.od.ifed by old Mrs. Trewlcy, whose fiesband had built 'the biggest hou-e in ihe town and died just as the house ova completed. Id Mrs. Trewlcy quickly became the ncmr popular woman in the village; tefghbors. who had almost forgotten her soon found excuses to borrow some thing, or to ask a question which they Jd long wanted to ask -anything, for excuse to find out about people KhcMii they had never seen, but who seemed to be rich. The Tillage Interest In the stranger frfM"od when one of the newcomers, m T-nndsome young woman w ho seemed if weir her Sunday clothes all the time, piq,earcd on the main street of the tII- XJO0C0COOCO0O00O0CCC00CC0O Jage :ui'l dropped hito Iii- two -r throe stores, app.u t-nWy because she could 1 1 -; t amuse herself unless she was buy- nig someiii.ng Of emu so rratiiv Wilsoy did Ids best to sell her something, and sell her as much of ii as possible; people who paid rash, instead of having things charged, and who did not try to "beat down" th prices ashed, wore as scarce In that village as saints in rum shops. It did not take the village U'U and oilier gossips long to learn that the young woman, whose name was I'u- i-. at the store in which Frank llsey was ...,.rk. ., lll:U ;iliyone rise who was clerk and mat anyone rise went into that store while Miss Trait was tlwro was obliged to wait until I Iii" 3i 1 .111 1 t Ill.MIF 4l 1 I'UU . - - - ' iii.li me voiiii wmii.iu iook ;. muiu as po- ;b!e in transacting her mess And i! was all because she wanted an excuse to talk as long as she ronld with Crank WiNey. who certainly did all in his power to be obliging. rublie opinion was divided on the subject: the older 'people said that of course it was Crank's business to sell all he could to a person who would pay ready cash, while the girls said hat Miss Trait was a bold, assuming, artful, hateful thing, and was merely j making a plaything of a young mva who ought to be old enough to have his j eye-teeih cut and not to let anyone ; make a fool of him. ! Public interest on the subject became i so irreat. lhat two apple-paring and one "Are you an amateur photographer?" "I'm the only photographer of any kiv.d in this whole country, ma'am," replied Chip with a pardonable pride. "I've always wauled to learn some thing about it." said Miss Trait. "I wonder if I could employ you to teach meV" "I'm ready for anything, ma'am, that means business." said Chip. The lady made some inquiries of Crank Wilsey, Avho said that Chip was a clever little fellow, and his studio was in his mother's own house, and Trait all he knew about photography. lie began by taking a picture of Miss Trait herself, telling her the meaning of each detail of the operation, and after the sitting he had her take a pic ture of her instructor. Then teacher and pupil went into the room, with windows screened with yellow paper. wh!cli Crank had called h!.s studio, and Chip taught Miss Trait to "develop" a plate. Chip began with his own portrait, which the pupil herself had taken, and it "came out" so well that the imp; was delighted aud insisted upon hold ing the plate in the sunlight outside, so that it might dry quickly and be "printed." Meanwhile Chip developed the plate of Mis Trait herself, in taking which he had been extremely careful, for it would be a great feather in his cap to display the portrait of so notable a per son as a "specimen." Cut the peeuliar way !n which that picture slowly came out in the devel oping "bath" made him wonder greatly. Xo oilier person had been near by when the picture was taken, but tho shadows seemed those of a man instead of a woman. As the details appeared it be came evident that Ii had used, by mis take, the plateholder containing a plate for which Crank Wilsey had "set." Weil, never mind; lie would finish it, and then pose Miss Trait again, on the plea that the platy was bad. lbit how oddly Crank's vest showed on the plate! Chip could not understand It. Chip finally washed nnd "fixed" the plate, set it aside to dry and posed Miss Trait once more. Tin lady wished to develop it herself, of which Chip was very glad, for he wanted to print that picture of Crank, and find out what was the matter with It. He soon found out. for a print, taken quickly in the sunlight, showed that the matter with Crank's vest was that it was entirely covered by a face "as pretty as a pic ture" of Miss Trait! lie had acciden tally taken her picture on a plate which had already been used once, although not developed, and the offset was a print which--wel!, it looked as if MIs Trait had given her confidence and her her heart to Crank Wilsey and was resting her head on his breast. Chip thought the picture very dread ful, that It might be, if his new pupil chanced to see It so he made haste to hide the print, and also to put the print ing frame and plate out of fght. Cut Isn't it astonishing how things will per sist in working Just as they shouldn't, in spite of all you may do to prevent' Miss Trait developed Mild dried her piale, and looked nt It Aldowlse, &g Chip had taught her to do, and she greatly liked the expression, und wan wild to take a print from the plate at one. Chip tried to empty the printing frame his only one without being seen, but Miss Trait's eyes had not b vn trained in a big city for nothing. It was quite plain to her that her youthful teacher was trying to hide th plate which he took from the frai.i", so aha s:t!d: "I.et m that plate, please." "It's a sjv.iied one," said Chip, throw ing the plate upon the floor. Cp to that tlim? he novr had dropped a plate, no matter how lightly, without hearing the sound of breaking glass, but the dreadful plateof Crank Wilsey and Mis Trait fell .is solidly as if it hail been a stove lid. Chip stooped to get it. but Mis-s Trait was too quick for him; she got the plato and took It to the light, saying: "What is if:" "It's an awful blunder that's what it is," replied Chip, in desperation. "I stupidly used a plate on which another picture had been taken, but not de veloped." "How funny!" said Miss Trait. Then the lady insistt upon making a print from it, and Chip thought seriously of running away and never coming back to town again not. at last, until the Traits had departed. lie got ready to run. and then from a corner of tho house observed his pupil closely. Miss Trait exposed the picture to the light. Two minutes later he saw her shade ii with her shoulders ami look at it curiously. Then he heard her laugh. Oh. that laugh! it seemed to Chip that lher laugh gave him a new lease of life, for if was a merry laugh, and one of the long kind that seemed as if it didn't know how to stop. Chip thought it safe to go back to Iiis room. Miss Trait joined him within a few minutes, and said, in a matter-of-fact way: "Now I know how spirit photographs may be taken. I'll have a lot of fun with thrni when I go bark home." Chip was so grateful that he felt like falling at Miss Trait's feet, but he didn't do it; neither did he ever see that plate again, and he rouhl not s.iy that he was sorry at the loss. Still, being a boy, he could not help doing a lot of wondering. Miss Trait really seemed to think the photographic mistake n good joke. How would Crank Wilsey regard it? There was one way to lind out. Chip toned and otherwise completed the single print he had taken from the offending plate. He bided his time, and one even ing he showed it to Cranio at the store, telling him that it was one of the ac cidents of photography. Crank looked at the picture as if lie doubted his own eyes, then he blushed and said: "I'd give all my hopes of life for such an accident in earnest." Stranger still, just such nn aeeident finally came of it. Tin picture set the young people to thinking about each other a great deal, and made them rather awkward when they met. and each knew what the other was think ing about, so in iho course of time Miss Trait became Mrs. Wilsey, and Chip, in '.store clothes," such as had never been seen in his native town, gave away the bride, for. as the bride herself, said: "If it hadn't been for that dreadful photograph we mightn't have learned to think serioii.sly of each other." Pittsburg Dispatch. The Cnchantcd Pumpkin. When your little brother or sister has a birthday party and you want a nov elty as a centerpiece for the tea table, try the "enchanted pumpkin" and see what fun it will make for Cue guests. It ought to be a prize pumpkin and a big one. Scoop out all the inside. That will do well cnovffi; to make pies out of for grown-up people on days that are not birthdays. Then stuff it full of toys lied up in mysterious-looking bun dles. To each package tie a bright ribbon, letting the loose ends fall out over the sides of the pumpkin. Then carefully replace the cap or stem part, which you cut off. so that it will look as if it were still whole, and place it on your tea table. Surrounded by fern and color ed autumn leaves and decorated with the drooping ends of the rihhons. it will make a very pretty centerpiece. When the feast is over set the chil dren to guessing how many seeds are in the pumpkin. When all have guessed, tell each to take hold of one of the rib lions, and when you say "Three!" they must pull on the ribbons, and in that way they will see how many seeds .are in tho pumpkin. Of course each liltb guest secures a pretty gift. Chicago Times-Herald. Her Independence, Tlirentened. A republic that was fourteen cen turies old when (Joner I Washington and his army were lighting the forces of King (Jeorge III., Including the hired Hessian contingent, Is in danger of los ing Independence the blessing which our colonial ancestors achieved in that memorable struggle. The wee common wealth of San Marino, on the cast side of the Apennine mountains, in Italy, by long odds tho oldest of all existing republics. Is threatened with this lr remedial disaster. One of the pro visions of the treaty under which Italy guaranteed the liberty of San Marino is to the effect that the re public shall coin no money, Nut adopt the coinage of Italy. Cut Italian money got to be very scarce In Snn Marino, and the little common wealth, on the plea of absolute necessity, minted a limited number of gold and silver pieces for the usi of the people. This did not disturb lire parity, but it fractured the treaty, .uivl stgimr Crisp!, the Italian prime minister, pro ceeded to annul the gattranty o Inde pendence.

Twenty years ago Kngiish dominion in South Africa extended only to latitude lift decrees south of the equator.
