Again the Car came down, but this time it stopped, though in a grudging fort of way, and the eleVator man opened the door with so much spirit that Mr. Dollypegs nearly met dis aster. "You seem to be in a hurry to-night, William," he smiled at the operator. "Yets," said William, lumping his Jaws; no time for foolishness In this car." Whereupon all the 'other passengers lumped their Jaws and only stopped squeezing Mr. Dollypegs against the side of the cage when a testy old gen tleman oh a lower floor (who .bad been shaking tho elevator gate until tho building rattled) got on and began to squeeze Mr. Dollypegs all hy himself.

The awkward helper annoyed the butler beyond endurance with questions as to his duties. He continued Interminably until the butler, worn out and nervous, said lr ronically: "All you will need to do is to stand behind the bishop's chair, and when ever his lordship puts down his glass you must reach over and wipe his mouth with a napkin." That Bllenced his assistant. But the young man actually took the order seriously, and as soon, as dinner be gan he stationed himself behind the bishop, waited till bis lordship had drunk and put down his glass, and then, as deliberately as his nervous noss would permit, be opened out a large napkin and wiped the dignified old gentleman's mouth!

SWEET "Haiti" Tho command rang out sharply and the figure skulking through the rice field hesitated. It was clad In the uniform of a common soldier.' The man was taken directly to the tcnt-of the commanding officer. "A deserter, your distinguished high, ness." The officer looked up from a chess board. He was a strong. handsomo fellow, but with a hard face. "You Kurlno?" ho exclaimed. The prisoner smiled sarcastically. "Even I, Shithiro." ho answered. Tho other waved his hand impatient ly. "You may go," ho said to the sergeant, "I wish to speak with the prisoner alono a few minutes." Then, as the sergeant withdrew: "You under, stand what this involves? I will see that the penalty is paid tomorrow morning at sunrise. But, greater than death, you havo tho disgrace of d sertlng." Kurlno threw back his head scorn fully, his eyes flashing. "That is a Ho, Shithiro," he cMd, "and you know it. I am not a desert er. I am a Korean, and was seized and forced into your company unlaw fully." Shlthlro's face didjpot change.

"To sec, tho daughter ot Lalo," slipped involuntarily from the officer. Ho bit his lips. "Yes," boldly, "to see Nuyama, tho daughter of Lalo, tho great merchant of MIyoz. It was with her father's consent, and wo were to be married in a month. It lacks but four days now. That Is why I tried to get away, for you bavo prevented mo sending any word." He was silent a moment, then went on, contemptuously: "You could net harm me in my own country, Shithiro, for I am more powerful thero than you hero. So you took this way. You thought I could be removed from your path In battle, or perhaps In some other mannor. I know Lalo and I know Nuyama, and thoy will not change. Nuyama has said she loves me, and she will continuo to love mo In spite of all that you and the world may do" Shlthlro's hand trembled visibly as he raised it to his eyes. "You are mistaken, Kurlno," he said at length. In a low yolce. "I did mot even know you wero in my company until a few days ago. But In this ca6e," frankly, "I am glad, though," a note of doubt coming Into his voice, "perhaps I'shall not'speak of your dls graco to Nuyama and her father. I may concede you, that mercy." Kurino smiled understanding. Shithiro saw the smile, and his face darkened. In the guardhouie, with curious, un friendly eyes no longer watching him, Kurino's scornful composure vanished. This, then, was to be the end, not only of his political advancement la Korea, but of that sweeter possibility which he had won and must bow lose. The hours wont by until from the shifting light he -knew that it was after midnight. Then the door 'opened and acme one came In. "Kurlno," some one called. Kurino sprang to his feet. "Shithiro!" ho exclaimed. "Yes, I I have been thinking It over, and It is as you say. Nuyama would hate rae. Here," thrusting t paper in Kurlno'sliand. "It is an hon orable discharge from the army. It will pass you through tho linos. Mow gol" "What," Incredulously. "You would let me go free?" "Yes, yet," more harshly; "but it is not for you. It is for Nuyama. I I lovo her, too. I would rathor die than r her to think 111 of me. Now go! gor At tho door Kurino looked back, In voluntarily.
