The only avail able peraun waa bia wtfe. Mra. Monty waa a matter of fact woman, with not a spark of romance In her nature, and had no uae for her huabund'a lit erary works except for the money It waa hoped they might bring. Still ahe waa a womau. and all be wanted to kuow wan how any woman would act under the circumstance*. He re aolved to try the ex|>erlment ou her. One day after the arrival of the poat mau Monty called sternly for his wife to come ?> the study. She came up with ber sleevea rolled up to the elbow, a rolling pin |u ber band and lu uo good bumor at belug Interrupted. "Margarvtr "Why, wbat'a I be matter, Mouty T" "Head that!" Mr*.

"I found It In your pocket. I reaolved to be aveuged upon you, and now that re venge has coma." Monty's hand trembled *o that be could scarcely grasp the note, and be was too stricken to read it Hla wife took it from him and read It to him. It waa from a woman who consented to an n sal* nation he had evidently pro^ posed. It bad beeu manufactured by aome one for a purpose, for there was no truth lu what It charged. But whut waa hla tnnoceuce worth now that hla wife had confeaaed her guilt? Life waa turned Uito a horror. Hla home I waa deatroyed.

A VALUABLE VOICE (Original.] The manager tad made rapM aWdea in hl? profeaalon He ??? only thirty, yet was sole proprietor of a ?ucc?Mful comic opera troupe. He was very bual ucssllke with the mouibora of bla com pouy. but they all Uked hlm One morning he waa receiving appll at t ions of oaudldatoa for the chorus A (trl with brown eyes and comely face lud figure waa admitted. "You are"? he asked deferential y. looking admiringly at one uuuauully teflued for a chorus singer. '"^eouaretta Traver." "You slug"? "Soprano." After a trial of her voice she was en **U>waratta sang so well that ahe was soou cast for one of the Inferior parts. \t the Orat rohearaal after the aaslgn ment ahe astoulshed the mauager by iluglng a deep contralto. Few womeu could reach the notes ahe struck. "What's the matter with your voice r aaked the manager, astoulshed. "l>on't know, air." ? You have been singing soprano for two weeks, slid uow you havo bloomed Into a contralto." "Sometime* my voice Is much loner than at other*." ? Your part lsu't written for a con tralto. I'll have to change It or change you 1 don't want to dp either." "I may be able to sing aoprano when I go on In costume." The manager studied tho matter, looking the while at the girl curiously. It wan a very strauge cane. "Well* he said presently. "I'll have to make some change In the part and Uave It ready lu case you come before the audleuce with those profuialo ??Leonaretta sang contralto till tlie evening of tlie first performance, when slie came to the theater looking pale and thin. "By Jove." said the manager, you look "as If you'd been keelhauled! 1 hope there's no new voice to provide for." ??I've had a sick spell." replied the girl. "1 tlilnk my uatural voice ho* -ome back." "What?" "I shall slug soprano tonight. The manager hurried off to attend to another matter, but bis mind was on the girl and this remarkable change of voice. When Leouarvtta went on she iuug soprano like a bird and ho delight the audience tluit the malinger was lellgbted also and cast her for a higher part at the uext performance. One nioniiug lAMiiaretla was In t le managers private office drawing her inlary when he looked up at her awl "??I'm going to put ou a piece uext week with a man's part In It that would Just suit that contralto voice rou took ou not very loug ago. Now, If you could only call It up at will. Id cast you for the part awl pay you * "Wheu la the (lrat rehearsal!" "On the 1Mb." "I may sing contralto by that time. "You may?" "Yea." "What makes you think so: "Well. I'm liable to a relapse at any Una* and haven't had one for a long while. It's due uow." "Nonseuae." He engaged a baritone for the part, who deserted three hours before the performance I.eonaretta was with the manager wheu he received the unwel come news. -I'll take the part." she said. "You! lias your voice relapsed I "Xot yet. but 1 think It will before 8 o'clock this evening." "Well, u|mui my word! Do you mean to say that"? . . . "I'll be here ready for the part, de pend upon It" And she skipped out tiefore the manager could recover from hla astonishment. At 8:<0 o'clock ahe weut on with ouo of the flneat baritone voices that had been heard In that house during the season. She had been announced ver bally as Slgnor Barllll to take the part of the man whoae name was on the programmes. At the end of 'each act Slgnor Barllll was called before the curtain and at the end of the opera re ceived a |>erfect ovation. "Sow. see here." said the manager after the performance. "You're a won der You're worth much more thau am paying you. A girl who can slug soprano or baritone at will la worth a fortune. We start on the road next week, and If you'll go with me and will guarantee to sing the different parts as I may require I'll give you a hundred a week and all tipenaea. ^ ou see. 1 save the salary aud traveling ex penses of one principal role. I'll make you another proposition." He dropped his businesslike tone and spoke fer vently. "You know very well that you have long been my favorite In the com pany. Indeed. I may say that ever since 1 first aaw you I've been dead gone on you. Will you marry me?" The girl buret luto a laugh. "Come borne with me." ahe Bald, "and talk It over." The manager consented, aud when they reached Leouaretta'u lodgings she excused herself for a few momenta. Skc soon returned hand In baud with a young fellow, the very counterpart of herself, her twin brother. **I am Leonard Traver," aald the boy. "and thla ta my sister, Leonaretta. When the fell 111 aome time ago, I took her part though I couldn't sing so prano. Tonight I sang the baritone part and received your proposition of marriage. My sister would answer It, but uow that you know there would be two. salaries and expenses to pay In stead of one 1 presume It Is with drawn." "You bet It Isn't," said the manager, clasping Leonaretta In his arms. MARION ItUBY BARCLAY. Our annual sale is now on, beginning January 1 and ending December 31 of each year.
