Now you see here; suppose you were in trouble. Wouldn't you love any one who'd come along and help you out of it?" He sighed. "Besides, it's too late now. The engagement s oeeu announced." . ! Wallace was Intensely stubborn. He would not have this thing. "Engage ments are broken every day in the week," he argued earnestly. Broadway made a gesture of dissent "Now you leave It all to me," said Wallace soothingly. "I'll have a taut with Mrs Gerard, and 111 guarantee to prove to her that It's all an utter Impossibility. You needn't enter into it at all. Ml take the whole thing on my shoulders, and " Broadway shook his head emphatic ally, although regretfully. "No; there's no use, Eob.

Juvenile affairs. ; Suddenly he realised that some out standing bills would not be among the mass which Wallace was examining. He would try to get them in. Ho wished to know the worst now that he was at it He went over to the telephone and called up a certain fa mous restaurant. After he had told the manager to make out his bill for the previous evening's entertainment and let him know the total, he sat waiting, with the receiver giueu ugui to on ear, and. when Rankin entered, called him to him. "You'd better look around for an other Job. Rankin." The butler almost fainted. "Hssnt my service been satisfactory, sir? "Oh. yes; everything hss been" all right; but you see, Rankin, I'm going to leave town. I er expect to do a lot of traveling." v . He gated at Rankin anxiously. He hoped this would be easy.

PRINCESS SHOT BY A, MOTH ; Accused Husband Saved by Remarka ble Evidence Introduced in Italian Court There seems to be no good reason for doubting the story that set free a Neapolitan prince accused of murder It wss the locally notorious ewe the Princess CaraveUa. at Naples, in Italy. After giving a dinner party she proceeded to her room to snatch a few minutes of rest In order to refresh her self for a dance. She was discovered lying dead on her bed, with a pistol wound tn her heart Her husband.

What was more Important stiTL some of the powdery dust from the moth's wings was found on the trigger of the pistol, and the pistol had lain, in such a position that it covered the princess' heart It was clear, argued this astute detective, that the moth bad burned its wings and had fallen cn the table where, writhing In agonies, its wings had struck the trigger of the pistol, and the pistol had been thus fired. It was noted that the trigger worked with exceptional ease. It should be remarked that theee Italian moths are larger than any with which we are familiar in Canada. On this evidence the prince was acquit ted. Enormous Demand for Matches. "The consumption of matches has reached amazing proportions.
