thought you would not accept his fa
vors If offered directly, so ho usked
me to come. Mol Isn't that rich?"
"In Just what way?" And so quiet
ly did she ask It that Nicholas should
hare had warning.
"Why, he doesn't know how long 1
have waited for Just such a chanco.
But you know, Adelc, and now"
He had risen nnd was approaching
tho countess with outstretched arms.
All that was needed to complete tho
happy reunion was for her to throw
herself Into them. However, that was
not precisely what, happened.
"Nicholas," said tho countess reprov
ingly, "sit down."
"But If you will only Just listen
"Pleaso sit dowu, Nicholas."
"You used to tell me, Adelc, that
"Did 1? It's no wonder, for you
were forever mooulug around asking
ine If I did."
"I can lmagluo no reason why you
should refuse to hear me say that 1
lovo you and"
"Well, thero is a reason. If there
wasn't I should Invent one."
"1 regret very deeply," ho began,
with great humility, "that anything I
have Just said"
"Now, that's better," said the Count
ess Vccchl, relentlug cheerfully. "When
you start regretting very deeply you
don't in the least mean It, but you're
on tho right track. Now forgive me
.for briugiug you up so sharply and let
us flnlsh our business. Ought I to ac
cept all this money for those shares?"
"Wouldn't It seem rather strange
for you to demand less than is of
fered?" "You're right. Well, I accept, then.
And I do want to buy back our home
here. But I feel 1 ought to deal direct
ly with Mr. Devlno himself In that
matter. You will see that ho comes,
Mr. Walloway", assuming an air of
stately gloom, stalked away from
Hewlngtou Acres. By tho time dinucr
was over ho had qulto recovered his
usual polso nnd felt equal to tho task
of calling up Mr. Devine.
"W01I?" queried tho Cherub eagerly.
"How did you couio ou with the
"Excellent!" said Mr. Walloway,
thinking only of tho business he had
been asked to transact. "It's nil set
tled. She accepts."
"What's that, Nick? Accepts who?"
"Why, the check. She will buy back
the property too."
"Oh! Is that all?" An nnmlstalxabl?
sigh of satisfaction camo over the
"Sho wants to seo you about It,
though. Says she must deal direct.
Wants to know If you can come to
morrow." "Why, sure I cau. But say, Nick,
aro you certain there's nothing else
no congratulations coming from me?"
"Why er you might cougratulate
the countess ou making a good bargain
If you wish."
TliU was lndellutc. but convincing.
"Poor old Nick!" said tho Cherub as
he huug up tho receiver. "He's had
his tryout, though. Tomorrow It'll bo
up to me."

"Well, countess, wo smashed 'em,
didn't we? And you had a hand In
It, after all. Nick told you, eh?"
Evidently she had been standing
there In tho window recess in the
library waiting for him. Whether by
accident ordeslgn.lt proved to be a very
effective pose, for the slender grace
fulness of her dark robed tlgure came
out in strong relief ugalnst the dull
green -window hangings, and the mel
low afternoon light showed tho hint
of color In the long oval of her cheek.
"Yes, Nicholas has told me, Mr. De
vino told mo all ubout everything. In
fact, he made quite a full confession."
Decidedly this was uot a cordial
opening Her tone was cool, almost
cynical. Something was wrong.
"1 hope Nick didn't overdo the thing,
count es Did he?"'
"I'm sure I don't know, Mr. Devine.

picked up a long document envelope.

Bent Mr. Walloway here to offer me
this check and an opportunity to buy
back Hewiugton Acres for the price
you paid. Is that correct?"
"That's O. K... countess."
"Also you confided to Mr. Walloway
that you were that you entertained
certain sentiments of regard for me
You called It love, I believe."
"Eh?" ejaculated tho astonished
Cherub. "Say, Nick didn't give me

"Great Scott, ycsl" groaned the
Cherub, beginning to wipe his fore
head. "But give mo a show here,
countess. I'm trying to think how 1
camo to do tho sieve act. Oh, 1 must
havo done It, all right, but how"
"I'm afraid I can't share your inter

"Ah, 1 remember. He wished me

some reserve In that discussion. Was

"Ah!" said tho countess. "Tho other

Tho Cherub sank into a chair.
"That's right." ho observed. "Keep

"Iteniorsc," commented the countess,

late iu tho day. 1 urn curious on only
one point. Having made your confes

"You you thought" Tho Countess
Veccbl appeared to grasp his meaulng
but slowly. Her brown eyes no lougor
resembled nny kind of fireworks. They
regarded him with wide wonder.
"You see," continued ,tho Cherub
earnestly, "he's so much ucarer your
kind of u chap in your class and ull
that and 1 didn't know how you two
stood, you know. Why, It didn't look
Just right for mo to butt In before
well, boforo you and Nick had a show
to make it up It you wanted to. That's
all. It was only right."
Tho sllcnco which had followed his
explanation lasted for several mo
ments, and when tho Countess Vccchl
again spoke the clear cut sharpness of
her louo was somewhat softened.
"1 understand. I bellevo I have been
told by some one that you had a code
of honor that was all your own. Well,
have you heard what uso Mr. Wallo
way made of his opportunity?"
"1 had him call mo up last night. 1
couldn't ask him right out, you know,
"Moro delicacy!'' murmured the
"Oh, that's nothing for mol But 1
mado him say enough so 1 could guess
hnw ho came out. You told Idm he
wouldn't do, didn't you?"
Tho shoulders of the Countess Vccchl
lifted a trifle at this.
THE CHILDREN ENJOY
Life out of doors and out of the games which they play and
the enjoyment which they receiva and theefforts which they make,
comes the greater part of that healthful development which is so
essential to their happiness when grown. When a laxative is
needed, tho remedy which is given to them to cleanse and sweeten
and strengthen the internal organs on which it acts, should bo such
as physicians would sanction, because its component parts aro
known to ba wholesome and tho remedy itself free from every
objectionable quality. Tha ono remedy which physicians and parents,
well informed, approve and recommend and which tho little ones
enjoy, because of its pleasant flavor, its gentle action and its bene
ficial effects, is Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna and for the
samo reason it is the only laxative which should ba used by tha
fathers and mothers.
If you would havo thsm grow to manhood and womanhood,
strong, healthy and happy, da not give them medicines when
medicines aro not neetied, and when nature requires assistance in
tha way of a laxative, give tham only tha simple, pleasant and
gentle Syrup of Fis and Eiixir of Senna. As you value the
healtn of the little onss, do not accept any of the substitutes which
unscrupulous dealers somotimas offer to increase their profits.

"I tried to be entirely frank with
Mr. Walloway. as I urn uow trying to
be frank with you. Mr. Devine. I wish
to nsk you if my acceptance of this
check Is n purely business transac
tion." "Why, sure!"
"You would have paid as much to

"Been clad to."

"Then I accept both proposals." She
paused, then spoke softly, "Good aft
ernoon. Mr. Devine."
As bo had found her, so she stood
when he turned to leave tho library.
About her erect figure there was al
most the suggestion of a highly strung
bow, which be took to mean that she
was Immensely displeased with him.
What n mess ho bad mado of every
thing, to bo sure!
Absorbed In these uncomfortable
reflections, the. Cherub narrowly es
caped a collision witb tho solemnly
alert Epplngs, who bad stalked for
ward to open the door.
Tho Cherub hesitated. Was It his
characteristic reluctance to acknowl
edge defeat or u sense of not having
lived up to bis own code? He might
at least have told her. ho was sorry.
"Walt a minute. Epplngs. Guess I've
A few resoluto strides took him
back Into the room where be had left
bcr. Perhaps she bad uot gone. No;
thero she was, but Why, what was
up now? It was quite obvious that
the Countess Yecchl bad burled ber
face in the window draperies and was
leaning against the wail of the room.
Moreover, from the convulsive rise
and fall of ber shoulders It looked as
If she were sobbing.
"Ohl" As she wheeled quickly to
ward him, saw who It was, realized
that he was standing there looking at
her, she dabbed furtively at her brim
ming eyes with a wholly Inadequate
handkerchief. r "I I thought," she
went on, "that you bad had"
"Yes, but I camo back. You're not
crying, nre you?"
"Crying! Certainly notl"
"Well, if I was, I'm not now. 1
shall uot again ever."
"That's right. You see, countess,
I'm going to feel bad enough about
this fluke of mine to do for both of
us. That's what I came back to say.
I don't know Just bow to put It, but If
there's anything 1 can do to make you
forget that there's such a pcrsou as
Cherub Devine I'll do It, even If it
comes to Jumping off the dock."
"There there Isn't anything."
"Well, maybe It'll be some satisfac
tion to you to know that 1 feel like
well, like flve-elgbtbs off and nothing
bid. Honest, I never meant to tell
Nick. I was Just going to" The
"You were going to do what?" sug
gested the countess.

There is a Reason Why
The Occidental Life Insurance
Company Has Met With the
Phenomenal Success It Has.
What the Governor of
Arizona said to the
Governor of New
"My acquaintance with the of
ficers of the Occidental Life In
surance Company, ana such in
formation as I have been able to
get from an examination into its
affairs, havo satisfied me that it is
a most worthy institution, and
deserves the support and patron
age of tho citizens of Arizona
and Now Mexico. I particularly
like tho policy of the company in
placing its loans and making its
investments in the section of the
country where it does business.
My faith in the company is evi
denced by tho fact that I am a
policj holder for a substantial
(Signed) RICHARD E. SLOAN.
What the Governor of
New Mexico said to
the Governor of
"I consider myself fortunate in
being a stockholder in the Occi
dental Life Insurance Company,
for I have had some experience
as to tho value of the stock In a
well-managed life insurance com
pany. "The real future of tho com
pany is in all probability in the
hands of tho executive commit
tee, and I am pleased to say they
could not, In my opinion, have
selected better men to manage the
company. I know them all, and
they are careful, honest and
"It seems to me that it is im
portant to the welfare of our ter
ritory that the large sums of
money which arc annually paid in
premiums on life insuranco pol
icies, and sent cast, should be
kept at home, and invested in
Arizona and New Mexico. The
successful work already done hy
tho Occidental Life Insurance
Company in securing such largo
business during the first years of
its existence, makes me helieve it
will accomplish this enx"
(Signed) WILLIAM J. MILLS.
THE CHARACTER OF THE MEN WHO CONSTITUTE THE
DIRECTORATE is sufficient to guarantee that tho business of the Com
pany is being honestly and ably conducted, and tho policy of the Com
pany of investing All its money in the Territories should appeal to
every local citizen of Arizona.
Tho Occidental Life Insuranco Company is an ola line legal rcservo
company that is as strong, sound and rcllablo as any company doing
business in our territories. Then why should you not give it your sup
port? Thousands of dollars have hecn loaned to our people, and kept
in the west sinco the organization of tho Occidental; the agent of a for
eign company solicits your business to send YOUR MONEY out of the
country. He is employed hy a foreign company, and his interest In our
territories is correspondingly increased or decreased by tho amount of
his production for his foreign employers.
KEEP AT HOME tho vast spms that have annually been sent out of
the country for llfo insurance for the development of tha new states
soon to be, Arizona and New Mexico.
