FOR THE SOUTH.
1*aliL- Colored Gonna—Feather Mutt* and Stole*. Cream and mastic, pale pastel blue and several shades of pink and straw berry are popular for costumes and gowns Intended for the south. The coat costume is not so universally in demand, and it .is more modish to have a three-quarter sack coat for cool days, the gown being made with a abort bo lero and altogether in more elaborate fashion to wear with a feather tippet in Warm weather. A Russian blouse lately designed had a full front of ivory satin gatuered to a lace yoke, and the broad collar and fe vers of cloth were ornamented with STOLE OP EBSUNE AND LACE. the panne. The sleeve in bell form Was tucked at the widest part and drawn into a cuff of panne. One of the new stoles of chinchilla colored marabou was worn with this gown, and the very large flat muff had two bushy tails on either side. \ These feather sets will be much worn in th« spring, and they are exceedingly warm and cozy, being so large and full that they quite cover the shoulders.

T /considerate creditor pressed for mediate payment of his promis . -ry cote. i tLut I have no money,” said the . , J&tcE wearily. “i saw you pay that man who just went out,” retorted the creditor indig \ natitly. ‘‘That was a debt of honor,” replied the other, with haiiteur. The creditor immediately tore up the promissory note which he held in his hand and threw it In the fire. “So is mine ^ debt of honor,” be re marked simply. So far so good, and the matter is pro ceeding along the proper lines for such cases made and provided. The debtor assqred himself that the promise to pay had been really con sumed. “Pardon me,” he then politely said, “but you tore up that note voluntarily and from mercenary motives. I cannot therefore recognize it as a debt of hou or.” Which proves that a nice sense of honor is a good thing to have lying about bandy. The creditor smiled indulgently. “Oh, that was only a copy I tore up,” he re plied. He took another note from his pocket. "This is the original, you see,” be remarked, with pardonable pride. Which proves again that a careful man before/burning his bridges assures himself that the feiry is still doing business at the same old stand. Fllsrbl of the Spirit. A. case recorded by Plutarch would •earn to support the theory that during periods of protracted insensibility the spirit of the sleeper, freed from the body, wanders away to realms and scenes not conceivable by the ordinary tenses. A man named Thespius, he i tells us, fell from a great height and was picked up to all appearances dead. There were no external wounds about j him, but the physicians were satisfied •f the fact of the decease. Arrangements were made for his burial, but on the third day after his fall he revived, much to the consterna tiOH of his friends. la a short time it became quite evident that the whole tenor of the man’s life had changed. Previously Wsrcharf cter was tVm4- a reprobate and a vicious muu, bu his Insensibility he ever felloweu . er virtue. On being asked tbe reason of the change, Thespius related that dur ing his long sleep hfs spirit had been liberated frola his body and had soared away to a strange land, where it had joined a whole company of other spir its. ■ ..

LEWIS | I 2 Copyright, m:, hy McClure’s Newspaper 2 ] 4* Syndicate 4* ' Outlaw, thief, robber and murderer, they had him safe in jail at last, Bed Pete, as he was generally called, had rendered himself a terror for years, but the law had finally laid hands on him, and he was tried for his life. There had bedu a great deal of ro mancing over Red Pete. He was a Robin Hood to many men and a cheva lier and a hero to most women. There was a general disappointment when he was brought In by a sheriff’s posse with his feet lushed together under the saddle and his arms tied behind him. He was a young man of twenty four, long haired, low browed. The sentiment of chivalry had never been awakened in his breast, and, as for be ing a hero, he had robbed cripples and shoteneu from ambush. “A natural born tough,” was the popular verdict at Sunset City, but among the few females who could not rid themselves of the feeling of ro mance his adventures had called up was the sheriff’s daughter, a girl of sixteen. Unfortunately for her, she was motherless. The widower sheriff, whose only child she’was, kept house in a wing of the jail stad, owing to the poverty of the county, was allowed only one turnkey. This was old Roberts, who was almost a cripple and a part of whose work was often done by the girl. It fell to her to carry the daily meals to Red Pete, and he at once discovered that he had a friend in her. They did not depend upon the brick walls and iron Mrs of the old jail to hold, sucb a man as had been run to earth. They chained him to the wall, and they put on an extra guard to pace the corridor all night long. It was only when she carried his meals to him and 6pened the wicket of his door that Susie could pass a few words with Red Pete, but he made full use of every opportunity. He praised and admired and asked for sympathy, ami long enough before^ he was put on trial he felt that he could reckon cn her aid whenever he asked for it. It took weeks to get witnesses to gether. and there were technicalities WITH SPADE AND IKON BAB SHE WORKED THREE OR FOUR HOURS EACH NIGHT. of law to create further delay, but when the trial came on the prosecu tion made short work of the terror. The jury returned a verdict of guilty, the judge sentenced h!ni to be hanged by the neck, and be was returned to his cell and his chains to await the day of execution. The verdict Wd filled the sheriff's daughter with horror. It seemed to her as If all the world was against one man. .That man might have been somewhat wicked, as she would admit, but she had been led astray by evil counsel and was more to be pitied than blamed. Her‘natural sympathies, fed by the lies and protestations 'of the man behind the grated door, finally brought her to promise her aid that he might escape a disgraceful death. They were to ride away together. ‘They were to ride far, far away, and he would make her his girl wife and love and A mother would have destroyed his piot iu a moment, but there was no mother to speak. She listened, sym pathized, admired and roved. In help ing him out ’of the hands of the law she was helping him to reform; in go ing away with him she would encour age him in his new resolves. The jail was without a cellar. On the west side, where Red Pete was confined, was an old shed used for fuel and storage; Every night for twenty eight nights the girl rose from her bed when the jail had grown quiet and slipped outdoors and into the shed. With spade and Iron bar she worked for three or four hours each night to tunnel under the walls to the prison er’s cell. She found heavy walls, car ried far down; and there was a bed of cement as hard as rock and a stone fl<»or to the cell. It was hard, cruel work for a girl, but she was incited by romance and love to persevere against all obstacles. Each night she toiled and labored, and each morning she re ported progress and received the com mendations of her hero. There were yet other things to think of. They must have horses, food and money for their flight. She would rob the jail of food, her father of money and one horse, and the other animal would be taken from a nearby stable. With the help of the man everything was figured out, even to the theft of n rifle aud revolver. Townspeople were admitted, to- see Red Pete, and they found him broken In courag*. Ministers were admitted to pray with him, and they found him contrite. It got to be common talk that lie had lost his sand and would fail to die game. He ad a part to play, and he played it. On the morning of the third day before the execution he knew that he was entering upon his last day in the cell. The tunnel was completed, and his weight resting upon one particular spot would sink a stone In his ,cell floor and give him liberty. The sheriff’s daughter would rob her father tltot day of money and firearms and food, aud when night came the horses would b^ ready at hand. Few women could have carried that secret through the vlong day without betrayal, but the girl gave no sign and aroused no suspicion. At 9 o’clock at nighi she passed out of the jail, made everything ready and then waited at , the mouth of the tunnel. The con demned man above /settled himself for Bleep, but remo ved his "chains with the file she had passed through the wicket as the guard paced to and fro in the corridor, let the stone sag under his weight and two minutes later was in the old shed beside the trembling girl. Two horscB stood near by, and she put money, food and a rifle into his hands. Only then did he speak, and his words werp prefaced with a sneering laugh. “Well, little fool; you have done well,” he said. “Didn’t you suspect that 1 was guying • you V Do you iauVine 1 would he idiot e.wiiph to be 1 . • .'..-Bed with you. Sit down and keep your mouth shut or i will, do it for you. I’m off. and if you raise au alarm for an hour I'll choke the life put of ,you before they hang me.” Each word struck the girl like the blow of a hammer, and she stood there dumb with amazement while Fed Pete strapped the rifle to the saddle and mounted. “Ain’t you—yen going to take me?” she appealed at last. “Bosh!” he sneered in reply. “Do you mean that you don't love me. that I'm to ho left behind, that you haven’t meant what you said?” “Don’t be a fool!” he hissed at her. “I was working for my life, and I’ve won the same. Sit down and cry it out. I’m off!" lie turned the horses and started away, leading one so as to have a fresh ■ mount. But he had not gone' a hun dred feet when the girl raised a re volver she had not given up to him and took careful aim. As the report rang out on the night air Red Pete threw up his hands and lurched from his saddle. “What is it? What is it?” shouted those who first reached the spot. “I have just—just killed him because he was going to leave me behind,” she said as she looked up through her tears. 1 ■.
