Bel ■mrasras es ______~ BENEATH THE BONNET By DOROTHY DOUGLAS. When Mary Anne was told that her father had accepted the position of lodgekeeper out on the Chigwell's es tate she wanted to shout aloud with delight "I know you have done It so that I fan be In the country and paint," she told him softly. "I can paint and paint, and paint!" she laughed joyfully at the prospect. The retired officer smiled at his daughter's delight. He had realized for some months that the roses were leav ing her cheeks and that her painting was suffering. She was first and fore most a landscape painter, but trips to the country for sketching were too ex pensive. Tom, his son, was unable to live in the country because of the long hours his position demanded of him. "Tom can keep the flat, so that when you and I get tired of the country we can come In. He can be your agent and sell all your canvases for you." Major Wells was busy writing a book on the "Military Age," and it was more often than not Mary Anne who ran down to swing open the great gates that the carriage might pass through. Always she slipped her big blue sunbonnet quickly over her tum bled curls and kept her head timidly bent, while the carriage drove either into or away from the estate. Mary Anne knew, however, that the master of Chigwell was decidedly good to look upon. The little sketches began to sell. One or two flattering checks found their way from Tom to Mary Anne. The major only nodded his head in ap proval. He felt grateful for the chance he had got to put her into the sur roundings necessary for her develop ment. It was in an art shop on Fifth ave nue that Chigwell caught sight of an exquisite ske.tch of the rustic bridge that spanned a tiny stream behind the lodge gate. Chigwell drew a breath of surprise. Without stopping to look at anything else in the window he went inside. The art dealer brought forth the sketch with the rustic bridge. "Who is the artist?" he asked casu ally, not wanting to betray his reason for inquiry. "The pictures are signed 'Mary Anne'—that's all. I know nothing about the artist. An agent brings them to me. I want all I can get of 'Mary Anne's' work. They are wholly charm ing—all of them." Chigwell was puzzled. "When next that agent comes In just get his ad dress for me, will you?" he asked. Mary Anne had been rising with the sun. There was a bit of rose arbor backed by tall sentinel fir trees that, in the early mist of morning, was of unearthly loveliness. Mary Anne suc ceeded In getting that atmosphere of mistiness that caressed the flowers and the grass and the fir trees down on her canvas. The sketch was a poem in color. Even untemperamental Tom quite held his breath upon seeing it. He carried it proudly into the art shop on Fifth avenue. "I've got a peach this time," he said with his genial smile. The art dealer agreed. Later he got Tom's address. Chigwell was so curiously interested in the artist who had trespassed on his estate that he dropped in at the shop daily. When he saw tbs glorions little ghost rose picture he took it as greedily as had the art dealer. And went up to the address given him. Tom beamed with brotherly pride when questioned by Chigwell about Mary Anne. "She's my sister," he said, "and lives out at a place called Chigwell Lodge." The name meant nothing to him, for John Chigwell had chosen to withhold his name. "That is not possible !" he exclaimed. "I know everyone on the estate." "She lives there just the same," said Tom. Chigwell left the flat and Tom Wells more mystified than he had been for many years. It was not until he re membered the slim figure at the gate that It occurred to him that perhaps it was the lodgekeeper's wife who painted. He had never speculated as to what lived under the blue sunbon net and the simple gown of blue ging ham. He stopped when his carriage had driven through the gate and knocked at the lodge door. Mary Anne hur ried from her post at the gate and stood quietly beside Chigwell. He gazed under the blue bonnet, and hoped his amazement was not too ob vious. "Can I come in?" he asked. Chigwell had no sooner stepped within the cottage than he saw at a glance that the blue bonnet girl was the artist Paints, palettes and sketches lent delightful confusion to the lodge interior. "I did not know until I bought a beautiful little landscape today that we had an artist—living beside us," Chigwell said, expressing himself with ; a smile that quite won Mary Anne's ; heart Mary Anne still runs out to the gute | and gazes from under the blue bonnet | toward Chigwell as he enters the gate i in bis carriage. Instead of running] back to the lodge, however, she Is] swept In beside him and his am Is about her as they drive to the big] house. He has every privilege where j Mary Anne is concerned. (Copyright m the Mc ChMo New»-] tuniiiiHiniiinnmimm—r HIE MISSING LETTER By LOIS PIKE. ; ; | | i j Things happened very rapidly in the slow old village of Columbus. The first thing that happened to rouse the people was the fact that Miss Ruth White's aunt died in her far-off state and left her a legacy of 15,000. Miss Ruth was the belle of the village, not withstanding that her father was a carpenter. Then it became widely known that Dave Johnson, son of Squire Johnson, had made new proposals of marriage to Miss Ruth—making three in all in one year. Then Abner Taylor's widow, who had been postmistress for several years, went suddenly blind. She had the legal right to name an assistant and she named Miss Ruth White. The two had been good friends for a long time and the girl took the place of as sistant that the widow might hold her place and not come to poverty. These incidents w«re gossip for a week or two, and then sleepy old Col umbus went to sleep again. The fact that Miss Rath was at the general de livery window gave Dave Johnson op portunities to see her and speak with her which he had not had before, and there was scarcely a day in the week that he was not a caller at the post office. His father, a justice of the peace, received more mail than any five other persons in the village put together, and his son's excuse every time he came in was to get his father's mail or mall letters for him. As for Ruth, the girl had little to say to him, for she had refused him absolutely, but as a public official she had to treat him with courtesy. One day when there was no one in the of fice but the two he said to her : "Miss Ruth, I love you and am go ing to have you for a wife. If you keep on refusing me I shall play you some trick to make you wish you had accepted me." His speech angered the girl, and she gave him back such hot words that he slunk away while she was still talking. He went dirt-ct to his fa ther's office and told his parent that the assistant postmistress had vilified the whole family. He told lie after lie to get the old man excited and -re vengeful, and the squire was ready to enter into any plan. "The idea that you are not good enough for her and her family 1' he shouted. "Dave, you have not the best of reputations; but we must go to work to take some of the conceit out of that slip of a girl. She seems to think she runs this whole town, but she won't even run the post office when we get through with her." There was scheming and planning for the next month. The first thing to be done, as father and son looked at it, w T ns to cause the girl to lose her position—and under a cloud of sus picion at that. But no opening pre sented itself for a month or two. Dave kept away from the post office and the squire got his mail himself. One day he entered the office in his pompous way and said to Ruth : "I wish to enter a complaint to the postal authorities, and it may turn out to be very serious for you." "Very well," was the reply. "I will take your complaint and forward it. Has there been anything wrong abont your mail?" "Yes, ma'am, there has. A letter containing money addressed to me, and which I believe reached this post of fice all right, has not come to me, and I want to know where the trouble lies." In about a week the inspector on that route arrived. He was a young and good-looking man, and his impres sion of the assistant postmistress was very favorable. She had probably made some mistake in boxing the mail. The squire was sent for, and the story told was that a man named Hardness, over at the village of Milford, had bought a horse of him and had paid all but $10 of the price. He was to pay that on a certain date. He said he would send a $10 bill over in a let ter, and he was a man whose word was as good as his bond. He surely had mailed the letter and it ought to have reached the squire next day, but weeks had elapsed and the letter had not yet arrived. He was asked by the inspector if he had telephoned llark ness, and he replied that he had not. ; Ruth quietly and calmly protested, ; and she could do no more. The- in i spector was about, to go across the ■ street and telephone to Harkness him self when old Uncle Doremus came in i with a letter in his hand and ex | claimed: "I *arn getting to be a darned old j fool. 1 got a letter in my box some j days ago and put it in my pocket to j .take home. Dog my cats if I didn't j forget all about that letter till just ! this morning! It wasn't for me any I how. It was for Squire Johnson here, I and it was put in the wrong box." i The squire received and opened the letter. There was no $10 bill in it. Instead of sending him the money, Mr. Harkness called him a cheat, a liar and a swindler, and said be might sue and be hanged to him. The squire walked out of the post office without a word. The inspector said such mis takes often happened, but could be overlooked. Dave Johnson did not ap pear to renew his proposal, but six months later Miss Ruth received one that she accepted and the Inspector bnsband still permits her to act as as sistant postmistress. «WW ■ Vif-Af 1 "" H ™ Pinch Back Models ■miiniaiguiiiiiiuuiiiiuiui uuuuhiiuuuihi»hui mtniiuwuiauiuiuHiHiniiHiiaia Norfolks— all the sum mer fashion favorites are tailored to order by Born with just enough "swagger."

The gas well on Avoca Island which was brought in Thursday while drilling a water well is still flowing freely about the same as Saturday. There is still no definite informa tion from the Pharr interests for oil and gas, but it is believed that the 'lowing of this well is of enough importance to justify the drilling of at least one deep well. It was announced from the Avoca dice this morning that there would be another well drilled for water very soon, and doubtless the result of the new well will be awaited be fore developing solely for oil and gas. Considering the shallow depth at which gas was found it is highly probable that there is oil and gas on Avoca, and that it is a continuation of the Iberia parish fields, as these fields nearly always follow closely the course of the river.

Caro Telephoned Local Parties From New Orleans Last Week May no to Mobile The mystery surrounding the ui.-, appearance of Sam Caro in January has been partly cleared up. He is in New Orleans, or was at that place last week and announced his in tentions of going to Mobile, Ala. It is said, that he telephoned to parties here and tried to get them to re lease his sewing machine and other tailoring necessities so that he might go to work at his trad . The same authority states that the peo ple who had his goods tied up by legal proceedings refused to release them. This makes it plain that Caro did not meet with foul play atid that his disappearance was voluntary. The various enterprises which Caro con ducted here are still closed. It is rumored that they will resume oper ations soon under the direction of the creditors of Caro. ilitcïs I'ulcher Boy ''ays Tempting meats at prices wsi quality for Volks mocAm n y .
