Loizeaux ur»nr|mi"»|n'»'nm'iniE j^nrrwnTTnrfnn^ Ned Cramer snoved the little canoe into the water and waited a moment, the tying rope in his hand. While he waited he looked at AnnePrescott, who was standing on the very edge of the wharf reading a letter. Anne's dress was of cerulean blue linen, and the set ting sun made her hair red gold. Final ly Ned spoke, albeit the picture was rarely pretty and appealed to him. Sgf "Beady, Anne?" he called. "All right!" said Anne, but she didn't move, and Ned waited some more pa tiently, for he knew he was soon to have his innings and was in no hurry to take the bat. But when he spoke the second time he said firmly: "Come, Anne." J" Anne tore the letter in two, threw it into the water and came to the little bark, where she settled herself Indian fashion on her knees in the business end of the canoe. She held it steadily while he stepped in and bestowed his long length of limb opposite then she let the boat drift while she rolled up her cerulean blue sleeves. It was one of Anne's peculiarities that she always did the paddling herself. It was not merely that the attitude and motion were becoming to her, though she was aware of her good points, like most well balanced girls. It was simply that she preferred having the men at a disad vantage—at her mercy, as it were. They always looked awkward with nothing to do, and it seemed hard for them to keep up the conversation. Ned Cramer was a little different. He always made himself supremely comfortable, and, while he didn't look at her as much as most of the fellows did. his glance always put her on her mettle. The quick strokes of her paddle sent them rapidly downstream. When they reached the first bend they passed the letter, which was skimming along the surface. "We'll go down to the island and see how long it will take for the letter to get there," said Anne, and Ned assent ed lazily. He lit a cigarette and smok ed awhile in silence. When he spoke his words were, as usual, to the point. "When are you going to marry me, Anne?" Anne, elaborately surprised, held her paddle in midair in a charming pose for a moment then it dropped into the water with a splash. "I have no present intention of mar rying you at aN," she said. "Then it's a good time to form an intention. I'll help you." He smiled persuasively. "Make it October. Pall weddings are so pretty, and that will give you two months to burn all your old love letters and make your good resolutions." The blood rase under the tan on her cheeks, but her only answer was a vigorous and renewed paddling. Ned" threw away the stub of his cigarette and felt in his hip pocket for his to bacco pouch. If he was nervous he did not show it. "Shall we say October, then?" he queried, adding with a note of tender ness in his voice: "You have made me very happy, Anne. You will not re gret"— "Well, of all the cool impudence I ever heard!" gasped Anne. "I wouldn't marry you if—if"— She stopped, ex asperated. "If you didn't love me," he finished for her. "I hate you!" she boiled. "This is six times you have made that insane assertion this summer.. Love you! I act as if I loved you, do I?" She stop ped paddling and looked at him. Her eyes blazed, and he thought she hadn't looked so pretty since the last time she had refused him. "No," he said "you act as if you didn't, but I know you do." He looked serious. "Why, it stands to reason, Anne that you love me or you wouldn't get so mad when I tell you about it." "Ned Cramer," she blazed out, "if you ever try to make love to me again I'll—I'll make you sorry! Now, you either talk about something else or keep quiet." She had evidently forgotten about her intention of reaching the island, for she put down her paddle and let the canoe drift idly along shore. It was growing dark, and a crescent moon was faintly shining in the east. Anne, look ing attentively upstream, saw a white speck in the water and, taking her pad dle, fished it out and deposited it, drip ping, on his knee. "It's the letter," he announced, touch ing it. Anne started. "Give it to me," she demanded, hold ing out her hand. "After I've read it," he said calmly. "Ned Cramer, that's my letter, and you have no right to read it "On the contrary, it's mine since, firstly, you threw it away, and, second ly, picked it up again and gave it to me 'to have and to hold.*" Anne quaked, but she tried bravado. "Well, it's too dark to read it any how besides, if all soaked and blear ed," she said. "My excellent eyes are not the least of my many good points," said Ned, spreading it out carefully. Anne looked about for means of escape. She saw Ned lean out and snatch something out of the water. "It's the other half," he beamed. "Now, I'll read it to you." He patched the halves together, held them to his eyes a moment laid them down again on his knee and glanced over at Anne. She looked relieved. "I told you it was too dark," she said triumphantly. "I Have some muu :.•," he answered, pulling out a lktle silver case. "Anne." he went on. "you know you love me." "I know that I hate you," she an swered. "Anne," he said, smiling at her, "I'm going to give you just one minute to tell me you love me, and, if you don't say it then I'm going to prove it to you." Anne's heart panted to say "Yes," but her stubborn will would not yield. She said weakly, "Ned, I"— "Timer* called out Ned, and then he lit a match and leaned over the letter. Anne bent forward, her lips parted, her fingers twitching. The canoe rocked dangerously.,. .'* 'Of course 1 love Ned,'" read the man slowly. "The letter," he interrupt ed himself, "seems to be from—er— some one to Clara Carlton. 'Of course I love Ned, but he is too sure of it, and I mean' He never finished the sentence, for in her attempt to snatch the letter Anne upset the canoe and landed Ned, her self and the letter in the muddy river. When she regained her balance and thought of Ned she discovered him turning the canoe right side up and paying no attention at all to her. Her first thought was that it was fortunate he had caught hold of the boat. Then she gasped in amazement, for he had let it go, and it was floating down stream. "Ned Cramer, are you crazy?" she screamed. "Catch it!" "I'll take you to the island first," he answered and waded through the shal low water to the bald, sandy spot they called an island. It happened that when he set her down her feet touched something hard, but w'hich moved nevertheless. "Ned," she screamed, "it's a turtle!" Ned had started away, and he called over his shoulder: "They won't bite if you don't scare them or the snakes either." Snakes! She held her dripping skirts tightly around her and stood, a pathetic but nevertheless a funny fig ure, fear written in every line of her body. She was too frightened to move when she saw the great turtle she had stepped on come straight toward her, craning its bald, snaky head from side to side. The tears rolled unheeded down her face and mingled 'with the water that dripped from her stringy, wet hair. She sobbed helplessly and with horri fied eyes was still Avatching the turtle, which had stopped in his tracks and was leering at her, when she heard Ned's voice. Never had anything sounded so good to her ears. "Do you love me, Anne?" How one will suffer for pride's sake! She turned her face toward him, un mindful of teal's: "I hate you!" she sobbed. "All right," he called cheerfully "I'll Just paddle around a little, and when you're ready you call, and I'll come. As I said before, the snakes won't be apt to bite unless you should happen to step on them or something." He turned the canoe and took a doz en strokes, feeling like a beastly cad every time the paddle touched the wa ter. Then a voice, wild and desperate with fear, shrieked: "Ned, come back!" "Coming." he called. "Wait, Anne." But Anne, terrified beyond endur ance by the advancing turtle, ran into the water, and he pulled her, a drip ping, sobbing, disheveled figure, into the shelter of the canoe and his arms. "You'll never regret it, Anne," he said softly. "But you will," she sobbed. "I'll— I'll lead you an awful life!" a in It to he a Some queer things are done by thoughtless persons who try by descrip tions to supply the lack of a definite address for their letters. One such letter was directed: "To my sister Jean, up the Canongate, down a close, Edinburgh. She has a wooden leg." Jean safely received her brother's communication. Another queer letter provided no diffi culty at all for the postman. It was superscribed, "This is for the young girl that wears spectacles, who minds two babies, 30 Sheriff street^ off Prince Edward street, Liverpool." Another was addressed, "This is for her that makes dresses for ladies that live at tother side of rode to James Brocklip, Edensover, Chesterfield." This, too, was delivered. The following specimen, however, proved too much for the mail carrier. It could not be delivered: "E. R—, a cook as lived tempery with a Mrs. L., or some such name, a shoemaker in Castle street, about No. 20 Hobern, in 1851." "She is a Welsh person, about five feet and stoutish, lives in service some ware in London or nabourede Lon don," was the superscription of a let ter that recently passed through the general postoffice. To pick that short and stoutish Welsh person out of some 7,000,000 people was a task at which the officials threw up their hands. The missive had to go to the dead letter of fice.—London Weekly. iv Glance.. Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson were passen gers in an elevated train. It whizzed past a house that was bril liantly lighted. "I wonder what was going on there," ejaculated Mr. Ferguson. "It was a wedding," replied his wife. "Didn't you see them standing before the preacher? He was in a white gown. The groom was in full evening suit. The bride wore a robe of chiffon cloth, with bertha and yoke of duehesse lace on the bodice and lace flounce on the skirt. She had a full length tulle veil and carried a bouquet of lilies of the valley. Where were your eyes?" Mr. Ferguson, realizing his utter worthlessness, resumed the reading of his paper and said nothing—Chicago Tribune. SPECIAL SESSION CALLED President Orders 3enate to Assemble &# at Noon on ,,,. March Saturday Z'Jfe Washington. Feb. 24.—The president Thursday issued a proclamation con vening the senate in special session at 12 o'clock noon on March 4 next to "re ceive such communications as may be made by the executive." Washington, Feb. 25.—As a result of several conferences at the white house President Roosevelt allowed it to be understood that he proposed to call an extra session of congress about Octo ber 1, and he did not believe anything was to be gained by attempting to have a session earlier than that time. Washington, Feb. 21.—The house on Monday, after a seven hour session, passed the naval appropriation bill, carrying a total of $99,914,359. The provision for two battleships, as re ported by the committee on naval af fairs, was retained. Several times during the debate the assassination of Grand Duke Sergius was referred to, the subject being brought up by Mr. Baker (N. Y.), who condemned the action of President Roosevelt in send ing a message of condolence to Russia expressing the sentiment that the gov ernment and American people viewed the act with abhorrence. The people, he declared, did view with abhorrence the massacre in St. Petersburg on Jan uary 22, but the president, he said, had not seen fit to send a message of condolence on that occasion. In the senate the house managers in the Swayne trial rested their case and the defense opened. Washington, Feb. 22.—The house on Tuesday passed the Philippine tariff bill, practically as it came from committee, and with but little discussion. There was no especial opposition to it. The senate passed the military acad emy appropriation bill and began con sideration of the Indian appropriation bill. Early in the day, in response to a question. Senator Elkins, chairman of the committee on interstate commerce, expressed the opinion that it would be impossible to secure railroad rate legis lation during the present session of con gress. Washington, Feb. 23.—After a brief but spirited debate, the house on Wednesday sent back to conference the army appropriation bill. All senate amendments again were disagreed to. with the single exception otone appro- in priating $95,000 for continuing the cable from Valdes to Seward, Alaska. The balance of the day was devoted to con sideration of the river and harbor appro priation bill. The senate considered at some length the bill providing a civil government for the Panama canal zone. Washing ton's farewell address was read by Sena tor Perkins at the beginning of the ses sion. Washington, Feb. 24.—Without a dol lar being added or subtracted, the river and harbor appropriation bill passed the house Thursday, after the session had run well into the evening. The total amount carried by the bill is $17,234,657. The military academy appropriation bill was sent to conference. The last of the testimony in the inter est of Judge Swayne, in the impeachment proceeding against him. was presented to the senate. The bill providing a form of government for the Panama canal zone was passed. Washington, Feb. 25.—In the house of representatives Friday the fight of many years waged against the appro priation of $180,600 for rental of the old New York custom house, resulted in a victory for its opponents. The time of the senate was divided between the Swayne impeachment trial and the motion of Senator Eeveridge to appoint conferees on the joint state hood bill. No action was taken on the latter. HUNDREDS SLAIN IN RIOTS Street Fighting in Baku Said Have Resulted in 500 Deaths. London, Feb. 24.—Five hundred per sons have been killed in the street fight ing at Baku, in the Russian Caucasus.

Warsaw, Feb. 24.—The situation here is causing the greatest anxiety in all circles. The assistant to the governor general frankly admitted that the gov ernment is at a loss to know what to do. Alarming reports are current con cerning the intention and plans of the revolutionary party, and March 4 is awaited with much appi»ehension. The strike agitation is spreading in every direction, and bank clerks, journalists, office servants, printers, drivers and sta tionary engineers and mechanics in gen eral are all threatening to strike. The strikers are resorting to violence. They have destroyed the great switchboard station outside the city and cut a number of telegraph wires. Western Poland is completely cut off from communication with middle and western Europe except by telegraph. Preparing for Inauguration. Washington, Feb. 25.—Washington has begun to assume holiday attire in honor of the approaching inaugural ceremonies.
