ITALTS PUBLIC LAUNDRIES ABOUT THB LIMIT. jKairifoow Gold By Temple Bailey COXXXXTOCXXXXXXXXXXXXJOCOOQOQOC030CX3QC Copyright, lata, fcr The dimness of the big drawing room wn dlghtly lessened by the glow of the light through the perfo rations of the samovar. Evelyn Her rick was pouring the tea. "I bad letter from Christine this morning," she said fib she bunded a cup to Ilruco McKenzia. "W'liut did the say?" be asked, ea gerly. "Wait until these pooplo go," Bhe murinured, "und then I will read It to you." It was nn hour before the crowd molted away, and even then they were not alone, for Philip llorrlck lounged on the roueh In the corner. Evelyn read the note In an undertone. "I am coming home, Evelyn. After all t bet-ii years of study my voloo Is a failure. lo you remember that 1 used to say that 1 would find my pot of gold at the end of thu rainbow, and Ilruco would tell me that im one ever really found rainbow gold? All these years I have been seeking a tiling that did not el;t, and you have s-taej at borne and have found h:tpMle:-s. I often 1 1 1 1 1 1 K of you and I'.ruco and of the friendship that has grown up be tween you. Something yon said In your kmt letter makes me feel that you two are about to enter upon a dearer relationship than friendship, and I wish you happiness, I who have missed happiness In my search for rainbow gold." t Ilruco and Evelyn looked at each other. "You see, she knows," Evelyn said nt last. . From out of the shadows Philip Her rick asked, "Has she lost her voice?" "Yes," Evelyn toll him, "her beau tiful voice; and bhe gave up every thing for It." She did not Fay, however, what was In the thoughts of each one of the Philip Sank Down on the Fur Rug In Front of Her. three as they eat In the dim room. They bad all loved Christine, and Bhe had been engaged to Bruce; but feel ing the call of her genius, she had chosen a career rather than marriage. And now Evelyn and Bruce were en gaged and Christine was coming back. Behind tho samovar Evelyn whis pered to her lover, "I am afraid." "Of what?" be demanded. "That when the comes back j-ou will find that you have not forgotten her." He shook bis head. "Slio did not love me, and now I know that I did aot love her not In the way that I love you, Evelyn." Their voices after that sank Into a murmured monotone. The darkness gathered, ami the man on tho couch, looking through the parted curtains, :ould see the stars. He thought of the girl who was coming back. When she bail gone away she had been radi ant with hope ami beauty. She bad been courted by a dozen admirers. And she was coming back a failure; ;oming bark to find her lover ready to marry another woman. His bfart ached for her as It had never nclied for himself. His own love bad been hidden that fdie might not be hurt by seeing It, but through all the years there bad been for him no ather woman. And oven as hn thought of her she same, parting the curtains softly and standing there in the dimness before any of them saw her. She laughed a little as she came toward them, and they jumped to their feet In startled amazement. "You didn't expect me so soon ?" she asked, and kissed Evelyn and gave her hands to Bruce and to Philip. Sho had lost Home of her beauty. She was paler and thinner, and the light was gone from her eyes. She gave a little tired sigh as she dropped Into tho The Beauty No Other Flower Has Ever Been Con sidered as Welcome or as Fragrant. From Chaucer to Alfred Austin the English poets have labored untiringly and on small wages to advertise the beauty of the rose and Its appeal to the tender sentiments. No other flower has ever been considered as "soft" aB the rose, or as "welcome," or even as "fragrant." Shakespeare, propounding the question of what's In a name, takes for his example: That which we call a roau liy an other namo would si.inll as swept. Even this immortal, it would seem, could think of nothing sweeter! Mil ton, in "Paradise Lost," speaks of A smile that glowed Celestial rosy red, love's proper hue. In the opinion of Burns the rose was "unrivaled." And when he seeks the highest compliment that he can yay ,to one of those several boojule Aioclt4 Lllvu; l'iaa chair that Philip bud placed In front of the fire for her. "How good It seems to be with you all again," she said, "the three dear people with whom I played as a child." Presently she went on, "And now, Evelyn la going to marry Bruce, which Is as It should be. I have come buck to give you my blesHlng." The word wus suld lightly, but Philip, watching her, saw the trouble In her face. Did alio still love Uruco? Would this marriage make her still more unhappy? "When I went away," sho said after a silence, "I thought that my return would bo a triumphal entry. Everyone would want to bear we sing and now no one will care to bear me." Philip sank down on the fur rug In front of ber. "Is It all gone, your voice?" bo asked softly. "I still have a little voice," sho said, "but no one cares to bear It." And again there was Hlletice. Them was constraint, too, in the atmosphero, for Bruce and Evelyn had grown into each other's lives and away from Christine's. Only In Philip's heart as tho real welcome that she craved, j Sho felt this Instinctively, nnd It j was ber need of him, perhaps, tlmt i maje ber ask later, when the four bad ; tallied of manv things, "Will you rldo back to the hotel with nie, Philip? I know Evelyn hud a dinner engage- j menf. and Bruce will want to say ' good by to her without us." , Philip insisted upon a stop at a tea- i room, where they ordered Ices as nil excuse but nte nothing. They talked of Bruce and of Evelyn and of the coming marriage. "Evelyn choso the better part," Christine said. "A woman is only a woman after all, and home-keeping hearts are happi est." He felt that she regretted tho loss of Bruce, and tried to comfort her. "I don't believe that you would have been happy with him, Christine," bo said. She looked at him startled. "With whom?" she demanded. "With Bruce, of course," he Bald. "Oh!" she laughed a little. "Did you think why, Philip, I am glad I gave up Bruce. If I bad loved him I could not have given him up. If I bad loved him no career could have taken me away from him, and that was why I went away to search for my pot of gold." She stopped for n moment; then she went on with some hesita tion: "There was some one else that I loved. Philip, but I was not light enough or frivolous enough to turn from one man to another. I felt that I must give up Bruce and test my selfbut tho other man never told me, Philip, that he cared." Something In her voice made him look at her startled. "Would you have given up your ca reer for that other man?" he de manded. "Yes," she said softly. "I would have been glad to have used my voice for love songs and lullabys, Philip. I knew that I was following a phantom, that my greatest happiness would not come from a career. But I felt that I must go away because this other man was true to bis friend, and be cause I felt that I must be very sure of myself." "I could not tell you. You under stand?" he asked eagerly. "I did not dream that you cared, nd I thought Eruce's life was bound up In you." "I knew it wasn't," sho said. "But that bad to be proved, and only my going away could prove It. And I am more than glad that I went away, Philip, because I have learned now that love is the greatest thing in tho world. I saw so many women over there living their pitiful little lives women eaten up by Jealousies and am bitions and the craving for excitement, ami I learned that nothing makes a woman happy but love and a homo. All tho modern theories, all the ad vanced arguments can never make me believe anything else." And then ho knew that all his wait ing was to have its reward. Ho told ber, then, of his dreams and of his desires. He wanted her in his life. It seemed to them botb, as they went out, that tho world had changed; there was a radiance about the star lighted evening that was a reflection of the radiance within themselves. As he left her at her hotel, Christine whispered, "I have found my pot of gold, Philip." "Whore?" he demanded. "At the other end of the rainbow," she said. "At the end that was near est home.

The word "rosy" has come to be synonymous for bright and beautiful. Even "rose colored" signifies far more than the mere line. It means "very fine or pleasing; alluring," as well. (See Webster.) June, perhaps, owes its enviable reputation among Hie poets not entirely to the circum stance that it happens to be the first month of real summer, but largely to the fact that it is a month of roses.

Mia itis? Bungling Diplomats Cause Trouble IlfASHINGTON. Ignorance on if part of amateur diplomats con cerning tho proper form of diplomatic correspondence nearly precipitated ,a war scare In two nations not long since. It was announced that the em peror of (lermnny had deliberately affronted the United States govern ment by employing affectionate terms In addressing President Madrlz of Nicaragua, whom our government bad refused to recognize. "Great and Good Friend," is tho way the kaiser's letter to Madrlz was commenced. This had sinister sig nificance to the amateurs. Immedi ately the newspapers were filled with stories that (lormuny bad espoused tho cause of Madrlz; that tho Monroe doctrine had been thrown down and repudiated by the warlike kaiser;; also tho emperor bad been acting (pieerly of late and undoubtedly was bent on making all the trouble he could for tho Cnlted States. After a Ibtlo Inquiry tho war bcnro faded away. "In all probability," said a state de partment official, "the emperor never Bad Land Title t, 'T. I OWN THIS or Vi-V" JVHFnCR A REPORT made to congress by a commission appointed to examine land titles in the District of Columbia discloses that many lots of land occu pied by modern business houses and residences in the national capital are still owned by the government, not withstanding the present tenants be lieve they have a clear title to tho property. This question of land titles In tho national capital is not a new one. Two years ago congress created a commis sion to study It. Tho commission con sisted of the attorney general, the sec retary of war, Senator Scott of West Virginia. Representative Bartholdt of Missouri, and one of the district com missioners. Tho report reveals a hor rible land tangle, which the courts w ill probably never be able to straighten out. The tangle Is the outcome of the wild speculation in real estate that took place for a good many years after the capital was laid out. Trivale lauds were acquired in Now Planning a D EER and elk preserves may play an high cost of beef. According to gov ernment experts who have made an investigation of the cost and methods of raising venison, declare that the game laws of the various states are preventing deer and elk farming and denying the country one of its chief sources of cheap and good meat. Dee; and elk can be raised readily in near ly every state in the Union. They are easily controlled and cheaply fed. The Increase of elk under domestica tion is fully equal to that of cattle. Tney are hardier and more able to stand exposure and the elk bide is more valuable than that of the steer. The Virginia or wbitetail deer, com mon in most parts of the United States, is not so hardy as the elk, but with proper care can be raised with profit. The state and the government, through its Yellowstone park officials, have co-operated with individual ranchmen in caring for the vast herds of elk in the Jackson's Hole region in Wyoming. It is estimated that there are 30,000 elk in tho Yellowstone park, region, constituting the only great herd left. For two or three winters these elk have been fed, and have now come to look upon the feeding- as u i r- -ivy v 1 "1 A'j URt?"THAT) RESTRICTIVE c4?S- Government's Census of Indian Wards wl Mm, t N the present census the govern- 1 ment has made a great effort to ob tain, through special agents, full and authentic data concerning the tribal relations of the Indians, as a decade tience when the fourteenth census will be taken, it probably will be found that those Indians who are now de pendent wards of the nation have be come full-fledged citizens. The Indian population of the United States decreased in the decade from 1890 to 1900, from 273,007 to 266,760. In 1880 the care of the Indians cost the national government $5,206,109; In 1909 the cost had flsen to $15; 724,162, more than three times as much.

Every letter that goes out from the state department to a foreign government has this cere monial finish; "Accept, excellency, tho renewed as surance of my highest consideration." Tho cermonall letters of all coun tries begin In about tho Bame way, For Instance, all of England's com - munlcatlotiH begin: "George V., by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, king, defeiidi.r of tho faith, emperor of IihIIm. etc." "Nicholas, by the Grace o' God. em peror autocrat of all tho Russia, czar of Castin, czar cf Astracan, etc., lord of Plescott and grand duke of Smo ljiiski. etc." Germany's letters are very much like those of Russia, in that tliey be r.ln by announcing ail the titles of the ruling potentate. "William II., by God's grace, emperor of Germany and king of Prussia," etc., is tho way the present emperor addresses bis cere monial letters. The emperor writes with a quill pen, and If one may judge .by his signature on file In the state department, does not take much time about It. Tangle Is Revealed Washington, in the early days, by a very simple process. The territory mt exceeding" tun miles square was ceded to the United States govern ment by Maryland and Virginia and placed under the authority of throe commissioners, appointed by the presi dent. They or any two ef them were required, under the direction of the president, to survey and by proper metes and bounds de.'ino and limit a district of territory, and tho territory so defined was established as a perma nent seat of the government of the United States. Power was given tlje commissioners to purchase or accept land on the eastern side of the Poto mac, for the tisa of the United States, and tho commissioners were further required to provide suitable buildings for the accommodation of congrpss, the president and public officers of the government of the United States. It was to raise money to erect the pub lic buildings that the government planned to sell its land to private par ties. No sooner had the capital city been laid out than land speculators ap peared on tho scene, and as a result o) their operations, it is asserted, much land which belonged to the govern inent illegally passed to individual owners. i Substitute for Beef matter of course, and State Ganu Warden Nowlin of Wyoming, who ha led the feeding experiments, says thai the last of tho great elk herds Is be coming rapidly domesticated. Severa' ranchmen in the Rocky mountain coun try have conducted private elk pre serves for years. Outside of the pri vate elk preserves there are few herdl left in the west.

Has Been Out of Plumb for Centuries, but Engineers Now Believe It Is Very Likely to Fall. Pisa, Italy. The leaning tower of Pisa Is dooa.cd. After a careful ex amination of the celebrated structure, royal engineers appointed to Investi gate Its rendition report that the tow er Is on the vergo of "ollapse. Its In clination has recently Increased eight Inches through settling of tho founda tion. The engineers say that It Is not likely thut tho tower can be saved. Tho ringing of tho bells In the j tower has been discontinued under orders from the ei.i.lnei is. who i fear that the vibration ml;;ht further weakfii the foundations of tho tower. The leaning tower was built In 1174-1:550. It Is 170 fe t high, and has for centuries been l.'t feet out of plumb. It Is now IS Inches more than t hut. At tho columns of Its arcades are higher on the leaning side than on the other, n o-.t authori ties believe that the si:. nt Is not ac cidentalthat the architect built It that way. Whether the famous tower was built In that way or accidentally s'ld out of perpendicular long has been a subject of controversy. Prof. Wil-l'-ni H. Goodyear, curator of the t. i .: tit lifl Leaning Tower of Pisa. 1 Brooklyn Museum of Art, has been makbig measurements and surveys which would determine the point In i question. "I am convinced that the obliquity ! Df tb'j tower was according to tho de j sign of the architect," he says in nn ; Interview. "The tower stands in a i shallow, well-shaped construction of masonry. I made exhaustive meas urements, particularly in the spiral stairway, taking the distances on i each side of every step for the entire height of the tower. These measure ments are of remarkable Interest as regards sequence and gradation and i are not compatible with accidental : obliquity. To my mind they estab lish beyond debate that tho tower ! was built to lean." FAMOUS CHURCH REOPENED. Interior Decoration of Ensenaneza Edifice Declared to Be the Most Beautiful In Mexico. City of Mexico. In the reopening of the old Ensenaneza church on Calle do Donceles, formerly Cordobanes, one or tne richest and most valuable geni3 f f ari work was restored to punuc en- ! joyment. Tills church was among the prop r,rty confiscated by the state at the j tjm0 0f the constitutional reform movement and the separation of j church from state In Mexico. It was , constructed about 170 years ago, out ' of funds donated by a wealthy Span- ! ish countess, and placed In charge of the religious order that conducted the . Ensenaneza convent, now used by the federal courts. ! In addition to the handsomely ! carved high altar, a rich piece of work in cedar overlaid with pure gold leaf t nnd reaching to the top of tho nave, are ten side altars, equally as hand- t somely carved nnd also overlaid with fine gold. Very little, comparatively, ' of the wall space is left uncovered by i these massive gilded furnishings, and this space is filled in with Immense 1 oil paintings, some of the rarest works : of art of the kind in Mexico City, in- eluding one or two genuine masters. On account of the rare value of these decorations, and their unique character as the only church decora-1 .tions of tlb kind in Mexico, Secretary ' of Finance Limantour some time ago , 'took steps to havo the temple restored j ito the religious authorities, succeed-j ,ing in having tho plans for enlarging the court buildings over that site.

In (lie smaller cities of Italy there are public laundries at which the wonu n of the place congregate, coin ing from all directions, each with her basket of soiled clothes balanced on ber beau. At these laundries there are long stone basins filled with wa ter, and there side by side tho women nnd young girls sund, sometimes pro tected by a roof, but quite as often in the open air. All through the proc ess of rubbing nnd rinsing and beating the articles on the stone side of the basin, the voluble Italians carry on a lively conversation, exchanging the news of the day wl;h as much gusto as do the females of our acquaint ance who gather around the card ta bles.

Boot stores had not the story In a single volume, but in a department store one young woman interviewed had re cently been transferred from the toy department and was able to contribute a helpful hint. "I think," she said, "you can find it in one of the dolls' houses downstairs." Curiosity had by that time become a sauce to literature, so the shopper hurried downstairs to inspect the doll houses. Three of the most expensive houses contained libraries consisting of a score of diminutive books and each book contained a child's story complete. One of them was "The Griffin and tho Minor Canon."
