To all remonstrances, Inquiries and demands, Jerry had one answer: "The evidence showed that he was guilty. I did my duty." It was clearly borne lu upon the ob durate young Juryman that any po litical aspirations ho might have en tertained weri' doomed. It was to be expected that Walter would consider him an enemy, but ail Rrvorton watched with much curiosity to see what Kdlth would tio. J, rry proceeded In tned late ly to Justify himself, "i couldn't do otherwise, Edith," ho mid. manfully. '1 strained every point 1 could.

"don't ever dare speak to me again. 1 hate you! We are not only strangers benoeforth, bul enemies." Edith,' he said, sadly, "nothing could make me your enemy. " As time went on. Waller had a new trial and was acquitted, Ills villein tlveness toward Jerry, however, did not diminish, and he did his best to Injure his former friend. Still there were men who respected Jerry for his BCtlOB, Hut neither the animosity of Walter and his coterie, nor the appro button of law ablders mattered much to Jerry All he wanted or eared for was Edith mid Edith's love Hut she cut him publicly and with disdainful demeanor. One day In early autumn, when has! ball enthusiasm waxed high, when crowds gathered and walled and Stam peded In front ol the places where the scores were shown, a crucial game was played at Hlverton. The home team, the Stalwarts, were to play ! gains! the Lions. This was tn be the game of games, for if the Still warts won It meant the pennant. All Hlverton turned out tn witness the game and shouted for the Stalwaris A gay young crowd was on the grand siand behind the plate. Among them w ere Walter and Bdlth. To their right, alone, was Jerry. " (jTand, gloomy and peculiar, thu secretary sat alone.' " quoted Walter with n Etieer and n glance nt Jerry. Edith looked, but she did not sneer. She found herself looking surrepti tiously and longingly at the lean-fuced, honest eyed man w ho hail squared his shoulders nt eoclely's disapprobation. There seemed to ho soiuu delay in the slnrtlng of the game. The umpire's sick, and they're look ing up another," reported Walter utter a tour of Investigation. In B few minutes the manager for the stalwarts approached Jerry, who had played two seasons ago with the Stalwarts nnd was considered expert authority n all matters pertaining to the popular gnme. After a short con- g H MANIATES ferencc Jerry left the stand and w ol down to the ground. "Oh, Jerry's going to umpire!" ex claimed some one sitting near Edith, whose Interest In the game was now Intensified, "The mendf or of the Ltoni won t OOnaettt," said Walter, to have an ex member of the opposing team uct us umpire." Hut the manager of the I. Ions knew of Jerry's proficiency In the game. He had heard also of his stanehness In the ! Eedeen ease He took Jerry's measure I at a fiance ami announced that he was perfectly latiafled with the choice. It was a close game, and people were breathless In their Intensity and crazy In their iheerlng At lasi came an aw ful moment. It was the Inst Inning, and to that point the game was a tie Then came n play that called for a close decision It was so close that the spectators, anil even some of the play ers, could not determine whether or not the man waa "out " Jerry decided for the I.lom. The stalw arts w ere manly and abided stoic ally by the umpire'! decision, but hisses, Jeers and groans came from If bleachers and from that part of the Brand stand where Walter and his friends sat. Jerry's decision In the Ledeen trial had made hlc; unpopular only with a certain class, but now he felt that every OBO was against Mm, He knew he was down and out for evermore In Hlverton. Angry groups were gathering hern and i her, on the way out of the grounds. "You'd better not gO down the slreet Just now. Winters,' said the manager of 0D0 of th tennis. "You know what crazy fools a baseball mob Is made up of." Jerry's taw enme forward and he aid decisively that he would go now. lie went There were niulterlnps as he passed out of the gate and Walked down the street, lie walked alone until he was a block from the grounds Then soma one stepped up behind htm 0 girl- every fair, tremulous girl, who said, timidly and softly: "Jerry"' Kdlth!"

REASONING POWER OF SPIDER Remarkable Ability of Instincts Has Been Proved by Patient Scien tific Research. The Insilnct nf the spider Is nlwnys Ml Interesting subject for study. Re "titly a naturalist placed a small spl der In the center nt a large spider's Wt h some four fept above ground. The large spider soon rushed from Its hbling place under a leaf to attack the Intruder, which ran up one of the ascending lines by which the web was secured to the foliage The big Insect gained rapidly upon 'be little one. but the rugttlve wus equal to the emergency, for when barely nn Incb ahead of the other It cut with one of Its rear legs the line behind Itself, thus securing its own escape, the ferocious pursuer falling to the ground The naturalist sayr it Is not the habit of apldera to cut the slendei thread below them when they are ascending to avoid some threatened dangei unless there Is n hole close nt band and a hole ihat Is known to be unoccupied " From this It would seem that the little creature's action was Ihe result of Rome sort of rea soning. The same naturalist says that Ipf ders are cannibals, and they are ua' Itrally pugnacious. Hut they do not tight for the satisfaction of eating ono another "When two Bidders light there Is generally a very good reason for the ntinek and the vigorous de fenee that follows. "It Ib generally known that after a certain time apldera become Incap able ot spinning n web from lack of material. The glutinous excretion (yon which the slender thrends nrc spun Is limited, therefore spiders can not keep on constructing new snares when the old ones are destroyed. Hut they can avail themselves of the web producing powers of their younger neighbors, nnd this they do without scruple. As soon ns n spider's web Constructing material haB become ex hausted ind Its last web destroyed, it seta out In search of another home, nnd unlets It should chance to find one that Is tennntlesB a battle usual ly ensues, which ends only with the retreat or death of the Invader or do fender." The man who has eaten well often thinks bis smile will feed the hungry one. RECIPES BY MARION HARLAND I Four Simple But Appetizing Dishe!

The breeding of sheep, which is now the largest and most prosperous in ilustry of the territory, dates back to isTfi, when Qov Duble Almeida bought rrom the Falkland Islands the first consignment of sheep for breeding purposes to this part of the republic, Notwithstanding the unpromising re sults of the earlier efforts at sheep raising In the Territory of Magellan.

Several Industries Closely allied to and depending upon stock raising nre at present being exploited In the Ter ritory of Magellan.
