"So you won't marry me?"
"I do think it's a sin, Jack, for you
to Insist, when you know this Is my

"Very well, Dorothy, 1 won't say an
other word. I trust your seasons will
be bright, and I will endeavor to do
my best to make them so."
"Oh, Jack, you are a dear! We'll
not be sweethearts for some time
we'll pretend we're only chums."
Dorothy Madden was considered the
prettiest girl in the state, tall and slen
der, with laughing eyes, auburn curls
and a chin and mouth that were the
envy of all the girls around.
Col. Madden had at one time been
prominent in politics, but after losing
his wife his health had failed and little
by little his immense fortune had dis
appeared. It was quite a blow to the
family when they found they had only
their hojue and a few thousands left.
Jack Churchill was the heir of his
uncle, Robert Vaughn, the Michigan
millionaire, and was much sought
Two gay seasons had passed. Jack
did everything to make Dorothy have
pleasant time. The many late eve
nings, dancing, etc., began to show on
Dorothy she was thinner, her eyes
failed to have the brilliancy that at
one time made them so beautiful. And
Jack had never In the entire two years
mentioned marriage to her.
Col. Madden, seeing the change in
his daughter, and knowing that Jack
had not been to him to ask for Doro
thy, supposed she was grieving. Call
ing his daughter to him one morning,
he said "Dorothy, does Jack seem to
be as attentive as ever, or have you
lost your heart to another and refused
the boy? You know, my dear, how
we're situated. Margaret is old enough
to 'come out.' You were a year her
senior when you made your debut, and
It isn't doing her justice. You must
make up your mind to marry, and give
your sister an opportunity. I cannot
kegp two daughters in society."
"Father," said Dorothy, "two years
ago Jack asked me to marry him 1
begged him to wait I hated to settle
down since then he has never men
tioned it, but I will try to look my
prettiest to-night and see what 1 can
While Dorothy and her father were
talking in the library, Margaret was in
the summer house—but not alane!
"Sweetheart, though you haven't
made your formal debut, you can mar
ry me and we'll tour the continent and
you'll have just as nice a time as any
of the debutantes."
It was Jack who was pleading, and
the girl he wanted this time was not
Dorothy, but her younger sister.
"Well, Jack, dear," said Margaret,
"guess you're right. Dad hasn't the
money to keep us both in society, and
Dorothy won't marry. Come, we'll g#
to the house and tel) them the news.'
There was quite a contrast between
the sisterc Dorothy, tall and fail

Dorothy had just finished her tali*
with her father, when the door sud

hand in hand, stood in the doorway.

"Margaret." said her father, "you
couldn't have looked the world over
and have pleased me better. Jack,"
he continued, "you can have her, but
remember, she is nothing but a child."
Dorothy, in the meanwhile, was try
ing to control her feelings. It seemed
as if lier heart would break, for she
loved Jack dearly.
"We're to be married on my birth
day," said Margaret, "which is two
months from to-day."
"I am glad you have appointed an
early date," said Dorothy, "for my ad
vice to you is not to be foolish, like 1
was, and wait until it is—too late."
Scattered Joss Worshipers.
A peculiar accident happened at San
Francisco recently, when an immense
box kite used for advertising pur
poses, suspended high over the city
suddenly broke loose from its lofty
mooring and sailed with great con
fusion down into the heart of China
town. It fell with a thundering crash
on the roof of a Chinese josshouse,
and instantly, its wi« iaving crossed
several live wires, there began a ter
rifying spluttering and flying of
sparks. The whole building jarred
when the mighty kite struck the roof,
and the fireworks that succeeded sent
terror to tlie hearts of priests and
Worshipers, who made a iiiild rush for
the st! cot.
Goose Thirty-Two Years Old.
John Henry Mattox, whose home is
In Goosepond district, is possessor of
a goose 32 years old. Its next birth
day comes in June. The goose stands
a good chance of living quite a while
longer. And, doubtless, Mr. Mattox
would not part with the fowl that has
been a member of his barnyard fam
ily for so long for any consideration.
There is also among his collection a
peafowl that if he lives to celebrate
its next birthday, will be !5 year* old.

The amateur sociologist was airing
his views to an admiring and high
browed audience. A professional poli
tician, cleverly disguised as an East
side settlement worker, had managed
to pass the sacred portals, and was ob
scurely ensconced in a dark corner.
"Graft Is the curse of the American
government!" exclaimed the amateur
sociologist. "The rich man can buy
his way to political power, not that
he wishes to serve the people, but
simply to increase his wealth."
"Hear! Hear!" cried the high
browed audience, after the manner of

Many women suffer in silence and drift along from bad
to worse, knowing well that they ought to have immediate
assistance, but a natural modesty causes them to shrink
from exposing themselves to the questions and probable
examinations of even their family physician. Such ques

you can consult a woman whose knowledge from actual
experience is great. ,»r -f V,
