"You are almost a surgeon. Why don't you set It?" asked. Joe. "Take mine and have yours mended." "Have mine fixed, too, will you?" called a voice from the next room. "Mine needs a patch." said another young student of medicine, appearing In the door. "I say, get the handle put on mine while you're about It," demanded a third. Dick departed with Joe Dart's um brella over his head and three disabled ones besides his own under bis arm. After leaving them with an umbrella mender he did some shopping and went Into a corner drug shop to wait for a car. He was absorbed In the marvel ous representations of a new patent medicine until, glancing out of the win dow, he saw his car, seized the near est umbrella and hurried to the door. As he passed out a feminine voice cried : "Slop thief! He's stolen my um brella!" Without the faintest suspicion that It referred to him Dick ran and Jumped on the car. When he reached the boarding house he curried Joe's umbrella to his own room and forgot It until the next rainy day, when his friends Inquired for their mended property. "The repairs will be finished today. I'll bring your umbrellas on my way back from the hospital." he told them. When he went out with Joe's umbrel la, which he had not returned. It struck him as being rather small for a man. although it had not occurred to him when he carried It before. As he seated himself In the car go ing uptown the woman next to him muttered an angry ejaculation. Dick moved his bunch of umbrellas and apologized, fearing he had set It on her foot, when to his astonishment she whispered : "I congratulate you. young man. Y'ou have had a very successful morn Ing. If It were not for making a scene that would get my name into the pa pers, I should denounce you here and now." Dick was speechless. He started to his feet. "Don't you suppose I recognize my stolen umbrella right there In your hand?" "North street!" bawled the con ductor. "I will leave you to your own con science," added the woman and was gone before Dick recovered sufficiently to retort. "Isn't this your umbrella?" he asked Joe when he reached the house. "It's five times as good. Where did you get It?" "I must have exchanged with some body." said Dick ruefully. "Take my silver watch out and swap It off for a gold one. will you?" said Joe. "Who shall you take to the next as sembly?" Joe Inquired later. "1 have asked Miss Mildred Wells, but. as I bave only met her once, she will probably decline." "Not Mllly-wltb-tlie-mercenary-moth er. She won't be permitted to refuse an Invitation from the only son of a gold mine." "Her mother has never even heard of me," said Dick crossly. "She'll find you out soon enough. She keeps a regular Bradstreet's of eligible men. She has married all her nieces to diamond tiaras and Is Just waiting for a chap like you to crown her daughter. Her permission won't be asked this time, though. She Is go ing away tonight. Mllly told me so this afternoon." Joe was right, and Mildred accepted Dick's Invitation. During her mother's absence she was relegated to the chap eronage of a much married cousin, who was too engrossed In the pursuit of sterilized nutriment and sanitary apparel for her children to keep a vigilant eye on her guest. The night of the assembly found her unable to leave her youngest, who, having deposited a dime in Ins insides, refused to honor a draft of mustard and warm water for the amount. The distracted mother was easily persuad ed to allow Mllly to go with a friend. "1 shall have to leave early." Mllly told her escort. "Mother will be home at 1 o'clock, and I must be there to greet ber. I have been staying with Cousin Carrie, you know, but I prom ised mamma I would be back at out own house when she arrives." j They left the dance at midnight and »darted for MlldretUs borne. When they reached the house Dick Inserted a latchkey, but It would not turn "Bridget has slipped the night latch,'' exclaimed Mllly. "She sleeps on the third story and Is so deaf she can't ovan haqr hy mo WliSt gbs!! W9 aor "Isn't ther» a window I can open somewhere?" "Suppose you try mother's room. The windows are on the piazza, and they are seldom locked." "I will do my criminalist," said Dick. "Just Inside the window at the left Is a stand with candle and matches. Ton can easily And the front door when you have a lieht." Dick opened the window, stepped In side. felt around with his hand, which came In violent contact with something on the stand and knocked It off. The one match that he found In his waist coat pocket spluttered long enough to show him the little china match holder, which had rolled under the edge of tli* bed. He was on his knees to pick It up when suddenly the room was flooded with electric light, and he was seized by the tails of his evening coat and Jerked violently backward. Struggling to his feet, he turned and looked di rectly Into the muzzle of a revolver held by the accusing angel who had commended him to hie conscience In the street car. The surprise was mutual. Dick's first Impulse was to laugh, but Immediate contact with a loaded weapon In the hands of a feminine fury Is not stimu lating to one's sense of humor If the situation Is sustained. "Ah. ha, young man!" she cried tri umphantly. "I have got you now—a 'Daniel come to Judgment!'" "In the lion's den, you mean," said Dick. "You are delivered Into my hands by an Interposition sent direct from Provi dence." "Y'ou've mistaken the postmark; It's from the other place," protested the prisoner. It was futile to explain. "You shall not escape me a second time. March straight Into that closet." She locked him In, withdrew the key and left the room. Dick glued his ear to the keyhole, heard an electric bell, followed by the banging of the front door, and his cus todian returned, accompanied by Mil dred, "Cousin Carrie gave me permission to go to the dance, mamma," she said, "and we left, as we thought. In plenty of time to reach here before you." "What do you mean by 'we?' I found you alone at the front door." "Why, Dick—I mean Mr. Brown—was with me. My key wouldn't work, so he got In the window. He must be In the house somewhere. It's funny you haven't seen or heard him." "I caught a young thief In the act of hiding under my bed, and I have put him where he can't do any harm unless from sheer vieiousness he sees fit to tear my clothes." "For heaven's sake, mamma, you haven't mistaken Dick for a burglar! Why, he Is the only son of Richard Jones-Brown of Boomvllle, who owns the largest gold mine lu the west," "That's a lie," said the gentle parent. "Richard Jones-Brown Is Mrs. Doan's brother. I met him at her house In New York last week. He promised to send me a photograph of his son, who Is a student In the medical college. I shall ask him to dinner." Mllly picked up some unopened mall that lay on the table. "This must be a photograph. Look at It," she said. Mrs. Wells tore off the envelope, dis closing the unmistakable likeness of "Daniel come to judgment." "Oh. what have 1 done?" she moan ed, collapsing Into a chair. Mllly snatched the photograph. "Isn't he the best looking thing you ever saw?" she exclaimed involuntari ly. "I'm simply crazy about him!" "Hear, hear!" bawled Dick, thump Ing on the closet door. "Good gracious, mamma, have you locked him up? Give me the key this Instant." "Ol«^on't let him out till I get up stalrs/^fciplored the old woman. 'T've Insulted him not once, but twice. He will never forgive me, never!" But for reasons best known to her self Mildred thought that ho would, and he did.

Many especial causes contrib ute to this, sucb ns III assorted mar rtages, which engender hereditary In sanity; hazardous and desperate spec ulations, the frequency of commercial crises, the Increasing fluctuations of political life, the laziness peculiar to the rich, the abuse of fermented liquors and, lastly, the Immense number of re llgious sects.—London Hospital.
