"Don't do it, Althea."
"I Bhull."
The first speaker shrugged her
shoulders daintily.
"As you will, my love," eha said,
"but I am older than you and more ex

"He doesn't Bhow It, then!" flumed
out Althea Kendall. "Only four woekB

When It was half over I received a

seemed to me. bearing his apologies.

"Well, then"
"The next day, not himself, but a
friend of his called me up. lie said
that Mr. Bllnn had requested him to
tell me that he must postpone the
Thursday engagement. That settles
"And you are going to write him "
"Canceling all the other engage
ments, and advising him that tomorrow
I am going on the western two months'
trip with the Demings. I had given
that up on his account. Now, see the
result of my sacrifice!"
"Still. I wouldn't send the letter,"
advised Althea's friend.
There, That Will Do," She Decided,
T shall send it. I am mad all
through! I shall never speak to Mr.
Blinn again."
"You mean Roscoe, dear."
"I don't. Oh, if he dares to ever ap
proach me again!" and there Althea
broke down, the tears came, and she
ran into the house precipitately, leav
ing her friend without' warning, and
had a good cry.
"Oh, it was shameful!" she told her
self, when vexation and the womanly
caprice of feeling abused succeeded
to the first outburst. True, they were
not engaged true, further, he had
spoken no word of love, but for nearly
a month she and Roscoo Bllnn had mu
tually realized that they loved one an
other. Even to observing outsiders
this had become unmistakable.
Althea sat down with great delibera
tion. She felt herself as hard as steel
and immovable as marble. Half a dozen
times she wrote and tore up a note,
formal In its tone, then cutting, then
fairly cruel.
"There, that will do," she decided,
with flashing eyes, but dewy, and her
pretty Hps set firmly, but quivering.
"Oh, it's all over the beautiful, beau
tiful dream!" she wailed, and threw
herself face down on the couch and
wept again as though her tender but
rebellious heart would break.
Then came gloom, it might be called
desperation. She felt hersolf to be a
somber executioner of love. She did
not read the note of dismissal, disdain
and severity again. She sealed it, ad
dressed It, affixed a stamp, put on her
wraps and left the house like some
heroine going to her doom.
It was at a busy corner that Althea

her heart fluttered as she opened the
slot of the iron receptacle and held
the fatal missive poised. Even there
she debated.
"I I believe I'll wait till morning
Then I will be gone, before he knows
of my plans," she cheated herself into
"Bee nardon, miss."
But Althea only uttered a little cry
of concern and dismay, as a man hur

"Oh, dear!"
She stood there, her troubled pose
attracting the attention of passers-by.
She became conscious of this, and, em
barrassed, crossed the pavement to
the shelter of an embrasure in the wall
"f the nearest building.
Oh, that she had the letter back!

with a thousand nameless fears. Sho

effaced the surracc of the Information
"I must wait," sho breathed, "no

Althea was so engrossed that Bhi"
stood rooted to the spot. Within her
stirred a mighty conviction that sho
had misjudged Mr. Blinn.
"I must get that letter back oh, 1

"Ill, there, lady!"

Althea heard tho shouts. Sho turned
at a roaring, crashing sound. She al
most fainted as she saw dashing to

horses were rushing forward with tre
mendous speed. I'aralyzed with sud
den terror, Althea oould not move. She
felt faint. Her eyes closed. Sho
Someone clasped her. Sho was lifted
back with swiftness. There waa a
frightful contact. The wheels of the
truck had struck the supporting stand
ard holding the mall box. This was
shattered Into a thousand pieces.
She paid no attention to the voice
of the deliverer. She never looked at
him, she never recognized him. Sho
saw only the contents of the shat
tered box flying wide three or four
letters, her own among them.
She identified her own. It was cov

sho secured It and thrust it into her
dress with a half-audible cry of hys-
trical relief.
"MIbs Kendall Althea!" sroke a
voice that thrilled her. Turning, she
recognized the man who had saved her
Roscoe Bllnn!
Althea was mute. The reaction of
tho excitement again overpowered her.
"Don't be alarmed," spoke the dear,
near voice. "All the danger Is over.
How lucky that I chanced by In time
to see your peril!"
"You saved me! It was you! fal

Then she found herself In an auto
mobile, summoned by this thoughtful
chevalier, and he solicitously seeking
to calm her frantic excitement.
"I Just got 'out,' I suppose I must
call it," he volunteered. "I very in
judiciously entered a contngion-ar-

Althea, and he read that in her eyes

"Sportsmen" Accused of Practically
Exterminating This Sweet-Singing
Friend of the Farmer.
Years ago the bobolink was a not
uncommon summer resident and nct-,
Ing bird in suitable sections of north
ern New Jersey. Today there Is lit
tle evidence that its status In the state
embraces more than semi-yearly visits
during spring and fall migration
The reason is not far to seek. Un
der the name of "reed bird" it has
been classed as a game bird and its
shooting permitted under the laws of
the state durir.g the months of Sep
tember, October, November and De
cember. Tho present regulations un
der the federal migratory bird law
shorten this open season to the months
of September and October, but they
are subject to change at any time at
the behest of the gunners.
The wonderful song of the bobolink,
that prince of songsters, therefore, is
rarely heard now hereabouts. The
demand of a few marsh gunners for
the legal right to shoot this bird of
valuable insectivorous habits out
weighs the agricultural Interests and
Mie esthetic pleas in its behalf. That
Vneomparable rollicking melody Is
Pushed over all the New Jersey mead
ows, because this bird, without a
Mingle attribute of a game bird, is
sialmed by a few pseudo sportsmen
as exclusively their own. Exchange.

When one has a number of plants

Bouffant Skirts, Which Seem to Be
Surely Coming, Require Much
Attention From the Laundress.
If we are to wear bouffant skirts,
we are probably in for a period of
starchiness. Organdie, one of the fash
ionable summer fabrics, is most cer
tainly a fabric that bears out this
supposition. Yet many housekeepers
maids of all work and even laun
dresses, have forgotten all they ever
knew about the gentle art of starch
lng There was a day when everything
was starched and some housekeepers
even had a bit of starch put in the
table linen Just a trace to give it
glossiness and a suggestion of stiff
ness. Table linen, of course, Bhould
always be exempt from starching. It
should gain glossiness and stiffness

papering rooms. There is ulwuys u roll
of paper left nf'.er any papering,
that 'several paper covers can be made
without cent at all, and tliu effect of
them Is n-ully churmlng, especially
iien tho paper they ere made of la
tho same rs that on the walls.
The length and width of the strip of
paper will depend upon the size of the
jini mat tne. piant in growing i:.; it is
a good plan to measure round the wid
est part of the pot, and then allow
three times that amount in length of
the strip; the width should be two
inches wider than the length of the
pot, bo that an Inch can be folded
In top and bottom. Suppose a plant
pot nfc'asured 14 Inches in circumfer

it the strip should be 42 inches long.
To Make: First of ail turn in au

the strip out flat on a table and fold
It In inch widths, first one side, then
tho other, so that when the end of the
strip Is reached it is just a strip of pa

should be put under a weight for an
hour or two, and the paper will pull
out like a concertina.
About two inches from the top and
bottom of the cover thus made run
through the flutes a narrow thread or
thin cord; for instance, on green pa

Why Pink for a Baby Girl.
Why pink for the girl baby and blue
for the boy? The reason for the dis
tinction is not very clear.
We are told that in Russia und in
America blue is used in the prepara
tion of the outfit for a baby If the
parents desire a boy and pink if the
preference is for a girl, and then the
old stork brings Just whichever one
he pleases, regardless of the color
scheme; so the wise mother uses both
pink and blue In her layette. A Rus

Bees Proved They Had Something to
Say About the Disposition cf
Their Product.
A farmer possessed a few swni:
of bees which he kept In what ore
railed box hives. Inside there were
Bmull boxea, whlrh would hold about
two or three pounds of honey each, an
exchange says. About eiK'I't of tin-so
were placed on the top of the hive, a,el
as at least one side of eui h box wuu of
glass, tho keeper could easily look
into the hive and Bee when Uio boxen
were filled with honey,
Tho farmer usually chose to do this
curly in tho morning, before tho heed
came out to begin the labors of the
duy, or ut nixht whtm lie y hud lin
lshed them. IioeB do not like to have
their dwelling places molested, and
usually try to sting the intruder.
One day Borne friends were at the
fu 'Tier's house and as they wunted
honey the farmer thought he would
venture to tuke It out lit the after
noon. He knew that some of the boxes
were quite full. Tho hives stood a few
rods from the house, and on that side
of the house were lurge doors load
ing into the cellar. While the boxes
were partly of glass, the bottom of
each was made of little slats, so that
the bees could go in and out as they
Tho farmer took out several boxes,
carried them Into the cellar, shut tho
cellar doors nearly together, uud h.ir
rled away, lie put the boxes lino the
cellur In order to allow any bees
which might be In them to fly out and
return to the hive. But, in his "haste
to avoid being stung, the farmer left
the doors open too much, so that the
cellar was quite light, whereas It
should have hvvy dark.
The bees were so excited, and en
aged that they flew in all directions,
attacking everyone who came in their
way. When Buppertime came there
were so many bees flying about the
cellar doors that no one cared to go
near them. Early the next morning
the farmer looked out of tho dining
room window and observed that the
air was still full of bees.
At about ten o'clock he looked again
and not a bee could be seen. He went
down and brought up the boxes. But,
instead of being heavy with honey, as
they were the day before when taken
from the hive, they were almost as
light as air, being filled only with
empty combs. The bees had worked
with a will and had carried all the
honey back to the hives.
Silk From Sawdust.
Making artificial Bilk from sawdust
and other lumber wasto is the letcst
experiment of the United States forest
products laboratory at Madison, Wis.
The use of artificial silk made direct
ly from wood is increasing by leaps
and bounds. Originally its principal
use was in the manufacture of braids
and trimmings, but recently the manu
facture of hose from artificial silk has
become au industry of vast impor
tance. Other uses for artificial silk
are woven goods of all kinds, linings,
tapestries, etc., neckties, ribbons,
sweater coats, etc. About 5,000,000
pounds of artificial silk are used an
nually in the United States. There
are several methods of manufacture,
but that from wood pulp is usually
made by treating the wood pulp with
caustic lye to form a viscose, which
is allowed to age for some time. It
is then forced through dies to form
threads, which are hardened by a
treatment with sulphuric acid, ammo
nium sulphate, and sodium borate, or
formic acid. After washing and dry
ing, the silk is ready for use. The
laboratory is investigating the arti
ficial silk problem as a possibility for
utilizing wood waste, and has on hand
a variety of articles made from the
material. Boston Transcript.
Finds Diamonds In Sea.
A story of a package of diamonds
worth 100 (?500) found floating in
the North sea by one of the crew of a
British mine sweeper was told in a
London police station by a deckhand,
Walter Gleeson, who had been ar
rested while trying to dispose of the
At the police station the deckhand
confessed that while on a trawler
which was engaged in the hazardous
task of gathering up mines in the
North sea he saw a package floating
in the water. He got it with a boat
hook and when he opened it he found
98 polished and 75 unpolished gems.
The deckhand attempted, in company
with a friend, to sell the diamonds to
a Jeweler at Cardiff. There was noth
ing on the package to indicate the
owner or how tho diamonds came to
be floating about in the mine strewn
waters of the North sea.
Arab Foes.
The Arab who is fighting with the
Turks in Mesopotamia has some curi
ous ways. He takes off his shoes
when he enters a house, but keeps on
his hat. He reads and writes from
right to left. He cats scarcely any
thing for breakfast or dinner, but in
the evening he sits down to a hot meal
swimming in oil. His sons eat with
him, but the ladies of the household
wait till the males have finished.
The Arab rides a donkey when trav
eling, his wife walking behind, and he
laughs at the idea of giving up his
seat for a woman. Tho Arab has one
strong virtue, and that is, he is rarely
seen drunk. He is not very affection
ate, is very ignorant, and has bo little
initiative that he rarely takes 0:. any
thing worth doing, or attempts to
carry out any enterprise.
Water Used to Wreck Bridge.
In the wrecking of a Berlin bridge
by water pressure, adopted to avoid
concussion, a steel cylinder, fitted with
cement at the other end, was inserted
In holes about 30 inches deep bored
Into the piers. A one-inch pressure
pipe connected the cylinder to a hy
draulic pump weighing only about 60
pounds. As pressure was raised in
the cylinder by the action of the pump
the pistons were gradually forced out
and the masonry blocks were split
away, one by one. The process is de
scribed as radd and almost noiseless.

Eibles on Watch Chains.
Tho devout of all lands have their
own particular way of giving outward
demonstration of their piety. In Rus

wearing miniature Bibles as charms
on the watch chain. They are got up
in attractive form about an inch
square and three-eighths of an inch
in thickness, and they contain five
books of Moses. The text of the book
is in Hebrew and the titles in Latin.
It is true that the book could not be
