"1'nless great care Is taken the bather In the Dead sea Is liable to an eruption, which breaks out all over his body, and which is commonly known as the 'Dead sea rash.'

Long (Copyright, by Hepburn lighted his ruby lump and sat down before his developing tray He was an enthusiastic student t f photography. "This settles It," he declared with emphni'ls, as ho removed the last plate from the box. "I sha'n't buy any more supplies of Sanford when I get back to the city.

Hepburn was soon aware that there was some thing about tills plate quite different from any thut he had ever tried to develop. Slowly thu Image appeared, but there was a clearness about It, collided with tho evolution of unfa miliar outlines, that puzzled him. There was the picture of the mill pond, cb-ar. yet uoft, a negative such as he had often dreamed of making. Hut back of this picture was another. It was oh, strange and entrancing sight! that of the most beautiful woman that he had ever seen. Hep burn stared hurd. Hepburn almost trembled as he carefully washed the plate, and set It on the rack to dry. After breakfast next morning he sauntered out as usual with his camera. He had no appreciation whatever of the scenes through which lie wandered, w hen, turning a bend In the path, he came unite unexpectedly upon a scene of such wilil and roinan- Towing the Senseless Woman to the Shore. tic beauty that It a' once appealed to his carefully-fostered artistic and pho tographic sense. The little stream, here running swift and deep, crept into a sheltered cove, over which the foliage drooped In long and graceful festoons, and its slender current was spanned by an old moss grow n log. "Heiiutlful!" murmured Hepburn, looking about him critically. "Why, this Is Just Biich an rrrangcnu'tit as I've heeu looking for ever since I studied 'Pictorial F.ffcct In Photos- raphy."

Hepburn did not hesitate, but sprang forthwith Into the stream. The girl once more arose to the surface and promptly wound herself about him, to tally lncnpacltutlng him as to the use of all his members. "Let go!" ho yelled, "or you'll 3lnk us both!" Hut the girl continued to twine and clutch. Thnn Hepburn did a cruel nnd ungallant thing, which only tho exigencies of the occasion could excuse. He grappled with the Kill. Partially disengaging his left hand, he attempted to thrust her away from him In order to get a hold upon her untra:nmclcl by her grasp, but he only succeeded in denllng her a terrific blow In the fare with hhi el bow. The woman of the double nega tive, stunned Into unconsciousness, re laxed her hold, nnd with a gasplnt; sigh went down again. After that it was easy. Hepburn was not a prac tised uwimmor, but he had no diOIcul ty In towing the senseless woman to the shore only a few strokes away. Arrived there, he lifted her carefully up thn bank and laid her on the Then he regarded tho ptlll : :t form ruefully.

"Yon hit mo," she declared resentfully. A CAMERA Joseph U Howies.) "I know It," acknowledged Hepburn dolefully. "I can't tell you bow sorry 1 am. Hut It seemed to be tho only way. You hung on so wo would have both drowned In four feet of water If I hadn't. You could have stood on your feet there If you had tried. It was very stupid of you not to. Hut It Is awful to think that I should have struck you. Yuu you of all per sons!" "Me, of all persons," cried the girl of the double negative. "Why do you say such u thing as that? I don't know you from Adam." "Ilecause, because," Bald Hepburn wildly, "I love you, 1 love you! I have loved you ever since I saw your picture last night, but It seems lo me now as If I had always loved you." The girl arose from the grass with an expression ot profound disgust upon her features. "Well, of all In comprehensible things!" she ex claimed. "You are certainly the most Impudent man I ever Baw. How dare you say such a thing to me? What do you mean?" "I mean." sold Hepburn desperate ly, "that I don't rare what things you say to me now, If only some time you will marry mo." The girl of the double negative spoke never a word, but with tight- shut lips gathered her skirts In both hnniis and began to walk rapidly away. For over a week he saw nothing of Miss Carrlngton. That young lady re mained In her room nursing a nose, formerly of classic proportions, anil an eye which resembled a boiled gooseberry, sunk deep n the brilliant and varied hues of a summer sunset. Her Indisposition did not, however, inevent her from Inspecting "that hor rid man" from behind hor curtains, and secretly commenting upon tho facts that he was certainly very good looking, and that he took sly peeps at her window ns he passed. If she had expected a repetition of Mr. Hepburn's former frenzied con duct when hho again appeared in the corridors of the hotel she was disap pointed. At first he seemed not to even see her. Then after they were Introduced by a mutual friend, he treated her with the grave courtesy which a happy instinct told him would be most pleasing tu a young lady with a high regard for the conventionali ties of polite society. It wus only towards the close of the season, and when preparations were Doing made by her family to return to the city that, phpicd by his Indiffer ence, sho began to unbend a little. They met often, then oftener, then walked together. They discovered Hint they had many points of Interest In common, although photography was not one of them. One warm September evening they walked upon the almost deserted pi azza of the hotel In the moonlight, an J it seemed to Hepburn that the hour was ripe nt last. Ardently, but this time with dignity and decorum, he told her again of his love. Memories of that other proposal must, however, have returned to the lady's mind, for "e drew herself up haughtily and said: I "I am surprised and sorry. Mr. He,. j burn, that you should so have mldiin- derstood my sentiments toward you. 1 ceP'oiii and respect you, but I do not love you.

Instead, he drew her only half-resist- md time In their short arriualiit- mice pressed a kiss upon her brow. A sain sho intimated an-trily, as she had onc- heiore done: "You are cer tainly the most presumptuous man I ever heard of! Don't you understand .lie? 1 s.ild- no!" Hepburn's face beamed with Joy and satisfaction. "My sweetest girl," he said, Bayly, repeating the oscula tion, "I hear you. Hut don't you re member that you lenrned long ago when you were In school that a double negative Is always equal to an affirm ative? This Is the second time ynu'vo turned me i' iwn.

That evening, when the happy man was ngaln alone In his room, he found 111 close ptoxlmtly to the fateful juco of glass a letter placed there by the bell boy, and bearing a special deliv ery stamp. It read as follows: "Dear Hepburn Did yon take away wllh the rest of the stuff you bought of me last summer an opened box of 4x5 dry plates? If bo, for heaven's sake, return them at once.
