Yet love bad come unbidden to the Lady Agatha, and she was playing with one of bis aharp arrows. A young soldier came through the trees and joined her. "Herbert!" "Agatha!" "I have bad new? for yon. My father announced to me today that I was to wed Count Alfred." The young man quailed as If struck by a blighting wind. "To lose you. ant to him. uiy bitter enemy!" he moaned. "Herbert, be strong, for my aake. Aud. throwing her arms about him, she wept on his shoulder. ? There Is no fc>pe." "There la. Count Albert will not force me to marry him If I tell blm that such a marriage would be re pulsive to nte." -He will follow hla Inclination Agatha, choose now between me and him. If you choose me, meet me here tomorrow evening at sunset and be ready to go with me. I have found favor with the king. w%.

I summoned her to hi. ?P?rtment? There with him was the Count Alfred piin - said the earl, "this Is your betrothed. I leave you with him, trusting that your Ant Interview may result In your being mutually pleased with each other." With that he with drew. Agatha threw heraelf at th? count's feet "lour highness," she said, "I am g<> log to trust myself to your mercy^ 1 do not love you. I love another. Tell my father that you resign me." The man started, but controlled him eelf. "What you ask Is Impossible. Our union will beal a breach betweeu two Important families. The king desires "The man I would wed is In favor ; with the king.

The count withdrew muttering, i have a dell<-ate rolt to play." The next morning Count Alfred told : the earl of his Interview aud the Lady Agatha was locked In her room. At sunset Herbert repaired to the green wood and waited Impatiently. It was past the hour set and the twilight was deepening when a figure concealed In a Ion*: robe came toward him. He won clered how Agatha could look so ta? The figure came on and stopped before him Then, suddenly, the robe was thrown off. revealing Count Alfred. "I came." he said. "Intending to con ceal my Identity, but since you are the man who Intends to thrust yourself among those Immeasurably above you I have stepped out of my disguise to give yon the chastisement you merit." | "Nothing could be more welcome." Both drew rapiers and placed them selves on guard. A full moon .hone above the horlxon. giving ?u?clent light, glistening on the polished blades, which gave the sound of steel against steel.

"Certainly, your hlghneaa. replied the woman, who had seen Count .U bert go off In the cloak she bad herself provided, and she opened the door.

[Copyright, U03."by C. B. Lewis.) We bad gone out to the Solldur reefs, fifty ualles to the south of Ceylon, to capture If possible a living specimen of the octopus or devilfish for the Bom bay museum. After arriving nnil an choring the bark n safe distance from the reefs we pulled lu with the yawl to look for slgus of the prey we were after. We had every reasou to believe that he was "at home" In a shallow cave at the base of a big rock, but we hall orders not to go too close. Next morning two boats approached the rocks from opposite sides, and Pro fessor Grimshaw, who had charge of the expedition, lauded to make a close Inspection. Our approach was made as silently as possible, and the professor removed his boots before landing. There was no danger of the octopus running away If he was there, but we had some plans to lay In advance. Aft er some spying about he was located lu the cavern spoken of, aud the professor was dismayed at the size of the crea ture. 113 had counted five great tenta cles, and the bulk of the octopus was that of a big barrel. It was decided that its feeding time would be about high water, and at low water It might come out to lie ou the rocks or swiui In the chaunel. It was for low water we waited, and before the tide had run out we landed on the rock again and stretched two large fish nets across it and weighted them at the corners witli ?tones to prevent their being carried away. In the channel we stretched other nets, and at dead low water we hauled off to see If anything would occur Something did. The octopus deeli! d to take a little ramble, and he emu. down the channel toward our When he reached the net and found his progress checked he was furious lu an instant hud did just what we hoped he woulii -k>. He seized It and began pulling nnd hauling, and In a minute or two he was all tangled up. For the next quarter of an hour we were treated to a rare exhibition. No whale could have made tlie fuss that monster did. lu his struggles he threw water twenty feet high and for fifty feet around him. and now and then he raised an arm high in the air and swept it nrotind him like a flail and with such' a swish as a limb would make In the hands of a giant The net was of the strongest material, and when he ceased to struggle we realized that, he was pretty well tangled up We could do nothing more toward hi capture Just then, however, as th 1 tide had turned, and lie retreated to his lair, taking the nets with him nnd making slow progress. At 8 o'clock next morning we landed on the rocks and found the nets all right. The professor had brought along a big squirt gun and a large jar of chloroform, and when all was ready we made a circuit to the west and got as near as we dared to the cavern and then began rolling stones luto it. \\ e had not been ut work over five minutes when the octopus was routed out. We first saw one long tentacle shoot out of the water and clutch the rock above, and then the crecture slowly and la boriously drew Itself out. The net had been bitten aud broken in many plrces, but still tangled altout him so as to .greatly hamper his move ments. Of the five arms only one wlis entirely free. The monster must have thought the attack was being made on him from above, for he had no sooner caught sight of the spread nets than he went for thein in a furious way. lie was, of course, still further tangled up. ind the exhibition of the previous day was nothing ta this. Nothing living could have broken clear of that tangle, but we had a good idea of the creature's strength by the way he suapoed ropes and cords here and then-. With one free tentacle he picked up and hurled Into the sea a loose rock wlilcb two strong men could not have moved. It was a quarter of nn hour before the octopus was so entirely tangled in the nets that he could struggle no more, and we waited at least ten min utes before approaching him. Then the professor advanced with his squirt gun charged from the Jnr of chloroform, aud its contents were shot full in the monster's face. In two minutes he lay as if dead, and we then got ropes and straps aud made him secure. Now nnd then there was a shiver the full length of the tentaclcs, and we had to stand back while the professor repeated the dose, but at no time did the octopus re gain full consciousness. When all was ready we put planks under the body and slid It down Into the water, aud after a hard two hours' work we got the mass aboard the bark and into a box prepared In advance. Few people have ever seen a full grown devilfish, as not above two or three have ever been on exhibition, and those mbic ashore dead nnd shrunken. The weight of this fellow was 510 pounds, nnd the stretch of each tentacle was over eighteen feet. The ?lie of the tentacles at their base was as large as the hotly of a boy ten years old, and each was armed with over 200 disks or sucking cups. Had he got three of his long arms around the body of a whale nnd used the other two to cling to some submerged rock his whaleshlp would have stood no show Whatever. The odor exhaled made us all more or less sick and dizzy, nnd we were glad enough when we had landed our captive at Bombay. He is there todny. but only as a preserved specimen. The best of care was given him when trans ferred to the museum, but in the course of five or six weeks he was dead. So far as I know, however, he was the t!ily oiw> of his kind ever taken alive. M. QUAD HIS LACK OF PUBLIC SPIRIT [Original. 1 J Sitting I" tlic rending room of a hotel , one cold winter evening I noticed an J old. bad'y dre -' d man come In, look ( nhout Idui as it not knowing exactly , what to do. warm Ids hands by the [ Uiv, then turu and to out. There was j something In bla appenrnnce that in- , tercsted me. He seemed like a man < who had n history.

( was the" pet of the village, or, rather, j the village was Sandy's pet. Some ( used to call him maudlin over other i people's troubles, but those to whom be , gave his sympathy were of no such i mind and loved him as he deserved to ( be loved. Saudy's only trouble was , that he had uo means with which to \ make people happy. He never met a , child that he didn't run through his IHickets to find a cent for candy, and when he failed to Und one would often lead his Utile protege to a shop and i provide the sweets 'on tick.' Hut I Sandy's great charm was a cheerful- j ness that communicated itself to oth crs and was a relish to those In dis tress. 'Always darkest before day. | 'Every cloud has a silver lining. " * t a long road that lias no turn'-these I and many more sm'h sayings lie had | for despondent friends and would de liver them with s ich cheery, winning I smiles that none could help being -com- i forted. , | ? Sandy had mcie in bliu than people | suspected. He never could become prosperous by ordlnnry methods, for I lie would give money faster than h ( could possibly make It.

There Sandy became possessed | of an embyro mine, which proved of ( great value, and he found himself a ^ millionaire. One day ten years after Sandy had left the town one of our morning pa pcrs announced that 'Alexander , O'Neill, the distinguished copper king, a former resident of this city, arrived yesterday on a visit to the place of his birth.' It was more than a visit, for Sundy had come to stay. "In view of Sandy's past charitable , dlsiKJsltion. it was generally admltUd that he would do a great deal with Ms wealth for the town. A public recep tion was accorded him, got up by the first citizens. I noticed one man's name on the reception committer wliun I had heard speak of Sandy O'Neill as ?maudlin over other people's troubles.' The organizers of the testimonial were , nil interested in propert} and enter prises which they hoi>ed would be bene tited by the copper king. The greeting of those whom he had befriended was different. They welcomed him with smiles at his good fortune/with t-ars ' at remembering his past kindnesses. "Sandv got through the reception as i l?.st he could und put It N'hind him as something with a ba.l odor. He went about Just as lie used to, sympathizing , with his friends, only now when he left them there. was something substantial in their hands to mark Ills visit II-' did nothing for the town, only for the people, l'or one he put a new roof on Ids house, for another paid olT a inert ^agf. for another bought a cow that the children might have plenty of inilU Wherever he found a sick person lie , sent the doctor and provided comforts. And everywhere that Sandy went !? gave as much comfort with his kindly, cheery words as with his money. "But when those who had no tie. d for Sandy's small benefits found that he would do nothing "for the town, when he had refused to take an Inter est In a park which was Intend d to bolster a real estate speculation, a rail road that was to connect the place wiih a neighboring city, a dam to furnish water power, they turned against him When he had first returned. In- was ' ilexander O'Neill, the dlstingu shed copper king.' He had not l>een In town long before the first citizens spoke ot him as 'Sandy O'Neill, the man with no public spirit whatever.' "Well, for years Sandy pursin'ti tin occupation he had chosen of giving awav his money. Then came a great commercial crisis, and the small bal ance that was left to him disappeared Sandy was without a' ceut. By this time be had dropped from among the first citizens, and bis loss made uot a ripple lo that part of the community It was a long while before it was known among those lie had befriended that he was fn want, but when they heard it they swi.riued about him those who bad savings ofTcring to i share them with him nnd those who had not saying through tears. 'Ood i bless you. Mr. O'Neill, and give you back your fortune.' "Then some of the first citizens win. had been Interested In getting up .us reception, when the fact that he was < penniless and had passed Into old age became notorious, offered to get up ? donation affair for him 1 have always believed they did It n humiliate I Im Sandy declined their offer, saying Urn: ho had many friend- who won'd no! gee him suffer.
