"Oh! why did you bring me here
why did you ever tell me?
Mrs. Lura Davenal, two years a
bride, moaned and wept and drew
back from the window whither sus
pense and suspicion and the subtle
plotting of a woman she should never
have trusted, led her.
She deemed Minna Burton a friend.
She should never have placed faith
in this false counselor. She knew she
had been one of a group of admirers
of her husband before his marriage,
who had been particular never to go
out with her, for her reputation was
not a clean one, but he had been cour
teous to her. Minna had not seen
much of him until the last month.
Then a lady friend of hers had inti
mated to Laura that Minna had told
her secretly that she felt sorry for her
because her husband was deceiving
The lady friend had brought about
a meeting between the two. Lura
had demanded to know the occasion of
Minna's insinuation. The latter, crafty,
jealous schemer that she was, had
hemmed and hawed and feigned em
barrasement. Then, when firmly
pressed by Lura. she had spoken of

spare yourself grief. Men are all
alike. It can do no good to unmask
him. Let the episode pass.
"Npver!" Lure was aroused and
then Minna had said: "Very well, I
will take you tomorrow where you
shall see for yourself," and she had
kept her word, for looking across a
court between two hotel buildings in
a room Lure saw her husband apd a
woman she did not know. The latter
smiled at Sydney Davenal. She play
fully stroked his face, she even kissed
Lura was heartbroken. Viewing her
with a crafty eye, Minna began to
give advice. Why not abandon this
false husband? At least, teach him
a lesson, disappear, if only temporar
ily. From a distance bring him to his
feet t, humiliation and contrition!
And to all this poor distressed Lura
listened, never dreaming that a wom

on separating her trom a man she had
"Yes, yes." she sobbed, "take me
somewhere away from this heart

"I have a cousin, a Mrs. Lavery, a
widow, living about a hundred miles
from here, who will be glad to give
you a temporary home." suggested
the specious Minna, and Lura, half
mad with her grief sad suspicions,
agreed to be at a place Minna named
later that afternoon, prepared for the
journey. She was to bring her grip
and Minna wuas to convey her to the
train and start bet on her way to se

Lure returned home in tears sad
made her preparations for departure,
sobbing heartbrokenly. She wrote a
brlef note to her husband, telling him
that she had discovered his perfidy
and that she would never return to
him. She placed this on a stand in
their room, where he would be sure
to see it Then she left the house.
Lura was unfamiliar with the ad
dress Minna had given her. She had
told her it was a quiet restaurant and
to go to its side door and wailt in a
secluded rear room. Lurs in her ar
gency and confusion of mind arrived
*a half bour ahead of the appointed
She shivered and glanced about her
apprehensively as she entered a vacant
room. The sound of clinking glasuses
and ribald voices in an adjoining
apartment frightened her. Suddenly a
girl wearing a tawdry garb peered in
to the room She viewed Lura critio
ally and then she approached her.
"1 don't know you. I ain't your
kind,." she said, "but I can guess from
something I overheard this afternoon
that you are here to meet Minna Bur
"If I wa-it-itf-has she been

Lura turned white uas a sheet Her
deepest suspicions were aroused. She
hurrted from the place. She fairly ran
until seral mqares distant.
Now she was mere hopelesly

horror as she thought of the wieked
snare set for her feet. Were all wom
ankind unworthy and cruel? She shad

mind. Even the dark, deep river
seemed to invite her. Gradually the
distraction grew less intense. She r
membered a married school friend.
Surely she. her closest companion for
tour years, would offer her a ref.ge.
Lura resolved to return home, destroy
the note left for her husband, write
to her friend asking her to take her
in. await a reply and then leave the
She was faint and trembling from
excitement and despair as she neared
the house. She entered, stood dazed
as she saw her husband coming from
upstairs. He was never home at that
time of the day. He must have found
the note, and yet with a beaming face
he ca-e towards her.
"You dear little wanderer," he cried.
"Wherever have you been. when I
have a great surprise for you?"
"A surprise?" she repeated. scarcely
knowing what she said.
"Yes, come." and he entwined his
arm about her and drew her past the
drawing room draperies.
"Lura, my nearest and dearest of
kin. Myra Blodgett," spoke Sydney

Burton had pointed out to her. She
extended a hand, but her senses were
reeling. What did it all mean?

How Not to Sneeze.

where people are assembled knows
how embarrassing it is to have to
sneeze with the usual unpleasant
sounds that accompany such an
outburst of our real nature, an ex

be avoided by thinking quickly and
following a simple little rule which
will save us much annoyance.
When the feeling comes over us
which always precedes a sneeze, all
we have to do is to lay our finger
across the upper lip directly beneath
the nose and press frmly soon the lip
for a few seconds.
The sneeze will leave without mak
Ing itself heard.
The same result can be obtained by
laying the finger across the lower lip
just above the chin and pressing rath

Either of these acts will not attract
attention and in almost every instance
the person will be saved the annoy

The week before Mr. Anthony Bua
ton received the disturbing news of
his granddaughter's visit, Mrs. Tom
Weatherby happened to look out of
her living-room window Just as Vir
ginia Weatherby and Harold Harcourt
Mrs. Weatherby's keen eyes de
tected something in his manner that
made her bristle with indignation. And
when Virginia came in with blasing
cheeks and a soft, happy light in her
deep blue eyes, the rage in her moth
er's heart overflower its bounds.
"Virginia, this nonsense between
you and Harold lHarcourt has got to
stop. Your Grandfather Saxton would
never permit it. You must remember
your duty to your family. If we al
lowed such a thing as a marriage with
anyone of the Harcourt family, we
should be cut off without a cent"
And after a heart-toheart talk with
Mr. Weatherby, it was decided that it
was time to remind Grandfathet aas
ton of their existence anyway, tad Vri'
ginia's trip was planned.
"Virginia," said Grandfather Saxtee
across the prodigious dinner table the
first evening, "an old friend is coming
tonight to play cards."
Something in her sad face made it
hard for him to suggest that she make
any effort to entertain a strange young
man at his bidding.
The old man felt misgivings. "Pod

suddenly, to Virgina'a surprise ad
wonderment. "Look here, VIrgina.,
he's bringing a young caub of a gra
