Her elbows rested on the table and her hands were clasped. Her eyes were riveted upon the little bronse dragon that sprawled upon her paper-weight. The door opened, and a maid an nounced, "Mr. Danfleld.” "Show him Into the library, Mary,” laid Jane, without turning her head. A suggestion of a frown rested be tween her eyebrows—she had not fin ished thinking it out. There were four people to be con sidered—Grace, Ralph, Mr. Grayson, and herself. Grace came first. The girl was an Intense nature with high ideals, and so delicately organized that an unre sponsive atmosphere would make of her heart history a tragedy. Jane had made a discovery. It was this: an engagement with Ralph was enough to make Grace's eyes bright for a whole day ahead. Ralph had a tremendous amount of artistic ability running riot. Grace's clear depth and intensity would give the directing force he needed. He was the man for Grace, too, brimful of ten derness and chivalry. Ralph’s own attitude in the matter was, of course, to be considered; but, whatever It was, it could be managed. It seemed to her that he had come to the 'parting of the ways—that ever so little weight would tip the balance to ward Grace or toward herself. Now Ml*. Grayson was a man of for tune, solid honesty, and frank, sturdy kindness. He would be a very com fortable person to have about. She would write an acceptance of his pro posal of marriage just as soon as Ralph left. It would be a great grati fication to her parents. As to love— well, she had lived a sufficient number of years, had had enough devotion from attractive men, to have come to the decision that it was not for her — she was not of the elect. Whenever she contemplated that "world of two outside of which all others' were strangers,” and tried to people it with herself and any definite man, some thing In her revolted, cried out, and ran away. So marriage, for her, was going to be quite pleasant and con venient—but not heaven. There were to be no love demands or restrictions. Just now, she must not keep Ralph waiting longer. He thought, as she entered the li brary In her direct, smooth way, that something was in her face he had never seen there before. Bhe, as If seeing him for the first time, was not ing the broadness of his shoulders, the firm set of his head, the mobility of his mouth and the fine freedom of his eyes. Yes, he was for Grace—Grace would give him what his nature would crave and deserve. She, herself, never could. While she was thinking these things Ralph was silent, and when he spoke again It was with quietness and no boyishness. "Jane,” he said, rising and standing near her, "let’s go out somewhere where there won’t be walls around us. I have something to tell you.” "That sounds interesting,” she re plied lightly, and looked out at the late afternoon sunshine touching with fire the windows of the houses oppo site. Finally she said. "I have something to tell you, too; we’ll make It a fair exchange; but I'm afraid it will have to be here, for 1 have an engagement In an hour.” “I’m waiting,” he said, after a time, In a voice that made her wish to see his face. But she did not look. "Oh, yes, mine first, of course;” this was unexpectedly difficult—" Well, Ralph, It's simply the same old story made over new; I’m to be married to Mr. Grayson.” Her eyes were on the firelight, but when he did not speak, she went on with nervous gaiety, “You know it's a secret, Ralph.” "Yes, I understand,” came In tense tones. "I shall not speak of it." "Because you see,” she said rapidly aa she rose, "we don’t know yet just when it will be.” "I wish you every happiness,” ne said. His face had gone white. "I must go,” he Bald, "else I shall be trespassing upon your engagement. Good-by, Jane." "Good-by," she said faintly, like one in a dream. Neither of them had mentioned the thing, he had had to tell her. and now he had left her. Oh. she could not let him go like that! She must call him back and tell him ic was not true — what she had told him. She must hear what he had wanted to say—she must! All. all! Before she was aware, she wan at the door and had called almost desper ately, "Ralph!” Now she stood clasping and un clasping her hands while she beard his heavy footsteps coming back—to her. As he stood In the doorway, she looked at him dazedly for a moment, and then stepping to the table she picked up two books. "I just wanted to ask you to leave these with Grace on your way down/' she said, "I Intended taking them my self, but shall not have time.” "Certainly,” he said, receiving them mechanically and turning away again. It was all over now. She stood at the window and watched him. He did not go in Grace's direction. She j turned away and sank down, and a . crushing loneliness sat beside her far ! into the darkness. HOW YEGGMEN WORK Hobs Burglar Not Llko tho Oltf tlmo Cracksman. A Pinkerton detective says that the i average citizen has no Idea of ihe ex i tent of the raids of the yeggman, or l tramp vault and safe burglar, during ; the last five years. From September 15, 1900, to the * same date in 1906, he says in the Bankaxlne, there were in this country 718 banks attacked by burglars with • explosives. From these banks $867, ■ 824 was stolen. These yegg or hobo burglars are the successors of the professional cracksmen who traveled on railroad ’ tTalns, hired conveyances to and from the scene of the burglary, carried 1 tools weighing from 60 to 75 pounds. * and after looting a bank generally ' lived extravagantly in the larger! cities until their money was spent 1 With these the taking of a human life 1 was an exception to the rule, only oc- J [ curling when necessary to escape 1 capture. Detectives were able from the ear marks of the old-time professional J burglars’ work to decide very quickly ! whose particular handiwork it was, 1 and could Invariably within a short time locate them and cause their ar rest. The expert bank burglars of old ' did not number more than 30 flrat | class men in the United States, while , “Johnny Yegg” grows like a mush room in the night. A common tramp, in many instan ces a cripple or peddler, known in the , vernacular of the "yegg” as a “gay cat” or "locater.” selects a suitable ( bank to attack, notes the surround ings, how many policemen or watch , men there are, if any (usually prefer ring a small town without protection of any kind), whether there are j , burgUr alarms or electric protection on vault and safe, routes of retreat ( and hiding places to evade pursuers, all of which he obtains in the guise of , an Innocent beggar or peddler of needles, court plaster and small wares,' without his real purpose being sus pected, and which he reports to tbs leader, or “soup-man,” Without giving the exact location ot | the proposed burglary the leader In structs from three to five desperadoes , to proceed separately to a water tank, railroad crossing or camp within flvs or ten miles of the place where the burglary Is to occur. One of the band is delegated to carry nitroglycerin or dynamite, another fuses, pocket elec tric lights, detonators, etc. The , darkest night, when' there is a storm' or no moon, Is usually preferred for' ’ the work. * Once at the meeting place agreed j upon, the location of the bank to be] attacked la divulged by the leader.) One or two, known as “soup” or "oil, men” or “insiders,” use the explosives ’ on the vault or safe, while the other' two or three, known as “outsiders” or ‘strong arm men,” remain on the out ] | side to frustrate any interference by ' citizens. j As soon as there Is the slightest in trusion or indication that the bank of ficials or citizens are preparing to, give them battle the burglars open fire in every direction. This, with the j explosions of nitroglycerin or dyna mite used In committing the burglary, usually intimidates the people of the entire village from attempting their capture or preventing attack. Escape from the scene of attack is , like the entrance, each burglar usually | departing in a separate direction and agreeing to meet In some larger near by city or in some uninhabited house or shack, or at some unfrequented | camp in the mountains or woods miles distant, bo that their capture or iden , tificalion Is Invariably difficult. They are in bands and tribes named ; aftar their leader and known by such names as Black Billy's gang. Slater s 1 gang, Canada Billy’s gang, Frisco Slim s gang or Cal Shorty's tribe. The increased operations of these 1 yegg burglars can be attributed to 1 the little experience required to at tack a vault or safe with explosives, ' as In several hours one yeggman can teach a novice how to use explosives effectively. While there are now approximately 500 yeggraen with a knowledge of bank wrecking with explosives, tho actual bands operating can be'nar rowed down to 50. Moßt of these work In the middle west. During the last ter years the au thorities have tried to cope with these burglars, but the trouble Is that the average sentence of the convicted safe burglar has not exceeded six years’ imprisonment, which with good behavior Usually meant release In four, and there aVe few if any cases of reformation. Consequently with his release the yegg renews his old vocation. The Intent of the yeggman before he commits his crime Is murder if necessary. "Kill to avoid arrest and apprehension,” is his motto. He carries the best make of weapon, with sufficient rounds of am munition to force escape, and enough explosives If properly used to demol ish a building In which the attack is to be made and Igniting adjoining buildings to cause conflagrations re sulting in some instances in loss of life. A strong effort Is being made to se cure the passage of laws which would fix the penalty of the bank burglar who uses explosives at Imprisonment for a term of not leas than 25 nor more than 40 years. Such a law has ! been passed In Maryland. It is j thought thac It will settle tbs jregg • problem THE LAST MOMENTS j WHEN THE SPIRIT CROBBEB THE | BORDERLAND. Passing of a Llfs as Besn by Ont Who Is Not a Physician—Dsath Rattls a Shock to Listeners. One afternoon a reporter for the Nsw York Sun was sitting In one of , the rooms of the house surgeon of a hospital in New York city, smoking a cigar and chatting with the doctor while the latter busied himself with looking over some instruments that ha had taken from a case. An orderly entered and said: "Doc tor, I think he Is dying now.” “Are Ids brother and mother here?” asked the house surgeon. “No. they said they were coming, . but they are not here yet.” I “It’s a case of severe operation,” I said the doctor to the reporter. “He | took his ether all right and rallied i from the shock, but he has been I losing ground for two days. Will you come along with me?” I The reporter folowed the physician , Into one of the small rooms devoted to private patients. Lying flat on his back on the nar row iron cot was a young man, per haps a little more than 30. The bed clothing was in perfect order. The narrow counterpane was spread smoothly on the cot and folded over, with the sheet across the patient's chest. His arms lay straight on either sid*?. His face did not indicate emaci ation. His breathing was Irregular, and there seemed to be a considerable Interval, sometimes longer and some times shorter, between the end of an expiration and the beginning of an inspiration. The orderly, stood at the . foot of the cot. j “How long has he been uncon scious?'' the physician asked. “A little more than an hour,” re plied the orderly. “Wo may »alk,” said tbv doctor, "ho I won’t hear us.” But thiß was spoken I In a low tone, as befitted speaking In the presence of death. "Does every person die uncon scious?” lie was asked. "Many persons are conscious when they believe they are dying. They become unconscious, and they may or may not regain consciousness and lose it again before death Jakes place. "A period of unconsciousness is Im measurable to the subject. A second, a minute, a million years—there is no difference so so far as he is con- I cerned.” | "The death rattle,” whispered the ’ orderly. j The intermittent breathing of the man on the cot had given way to a | sound that was strange to one not ac- I customed to hear It—a sound so far from human that it is made but once in a lifetime, and that is when one is passing to the other side of the bor derland of human existence. "Unearthly” Is perhaps the one word that comes nearest to designat- j ing this sound. Because, maybe, of i the silence of the death chamber, It seems loud to ears not acquainted , with it. It seems even loud enough to be heard through the brick walls and out in the street. The sound ceases, and the watchers turn their eyes toward the face of the physician. It begins again, as if the dead were awakening. "They will not come before he dies," said the doctor. "Is he likely to regain conscious ness, even for a moment?" the phy sician was asked. “I don’t think so,” was the reply. "May I hold his hand, so that if he does be may feel that he is not alone?” The (hysician nodded assent. The loan's finger tips seemed very cold to the warm hand that took them. There was no sign of permission or resistance. The death rattle contin ued with longer intervals between the breathings. For how many minutes this con tinued cannot be told; it seemed an ago. The strange, unearthly sound ceased, and two faces were turned toward that of the physician. Thfcn there was a convulsive rnove r lent of the body on the cot, followed by a jerk of the head as if from strangulation. The jaw of the patient fell and his eyes, which had opened, stared *t the wall. There had been no sign of response from th>) hand of the dying man. The orderly stepped to the head of the cot, and with the thumb and a fin ger of ohe hand pushed down the eye lids ove.’ the sightless eyes. Kissing the Book. The exact origin of klsshiff the Book in English courts, though mod ern, Is obscure. It is not a matter of legal obligation but seems to be mere ly a custom dating from the middle or end of the eighteenth century. If a witness claims to follow the law ac cording to Coke and to take his “cor poral oath” by touching the Book who shall refuse him his right? The "kissing” act. seems akin in deed to what the “fancy” call, some what unpleasantly, a saliva custom, which in modern western life exists in very few forms, though many of the lower classes still “spit” on a coin for luck.

I 'Vegetarian Springs a Few Facta OR Aatoniahsd Companions. i "81nce the first of the year,” ha said, “I haven't had a smoke, and I haven't taken a drink.” Everybody looked at him with amazement, respect and awe. How atrong-wllled he must be, they said; how ascetic, how spiritual! It was tre mendous. "And yet," said a pale vegetarian, "all women, or at least 99 per cent, of them, maintain this wonderful absti nence their whole life long. Why don’t you praise them for It?” With his medicated handkerchief he brushed the sneer from hlB lips. "We men," he said, "beside women are hogs. We call our women silly; we won't give them the vote; but the average woman lives on a higher plane than the average man. She thinks of nobler things than money grubbing, drink, tobacco, food. "Did you ever hear your wife growl about the cooking? Did you ever hear of a woman epicure? No; woman Is above the hoglike pleasures of the table. She is above such a tobacco and whisky seance as is now going on here.” The vegetarian put on his cap of medicated flannel, and, despite the warmth of the night, drew the flannel eartabs over his ears. "Give woman her due,” he ended. "She is a flner-flbered, a more temper ate, a more spiritual creature than coarse, gross, hog-like man.”—Cincin nati Enquirer. Laundry work at home would bs much more satisfactory if the right Starch were used. In order to get the desired stiffness, It Is usually neces sary to use so much starch that the beauty and fineness of the fabric Is hidden behind a paste of varying thickness, which not only destroys the appearance, but also affects the wear ing quality of the goods. This trouble can be entirely overcome by using De fiance Starch, as it can be applied much more thinly because of Ita great er strength than other makes. No Criticism to Make. Mrs. Hwfa Williams, the English so elety leader, talked at a dance ia New York about the fashion of riding astride that has taken hold of English equestriennes. "Some of our young women,” said Mrs. Williams, "dreßß out and out Uke men. They wear a long coat cut like a hunting coat, a cap, riding breeches and top boots. It is a handsome cos tume and It Is not Immodest, but un doubtedly it attracts a good deal of attention. They have been telling In London lately a story about an Eng lish girl who has adopted this riding rig. Pulling up her horse one after noon she said to an artisan who was passing: ‘Can you tell me if thla ia the way to Wareham?' "The man looked her over carefully. Then he touched his cap in a respect ful manner and replied: ‘Yes, miss, yes—you seem to ’ave got ’em on all right.’ ’’ A Fish Btory. [ "Trout protection! Nonsense!” said a gunner of local eminence. “Trout are amply able to protect themselves. Look at their depredations among ducks, for example, and you will agree with mo that It's the birds that need protection. It's a common thing for a trout to jump from the water, seize a duck by the neck, drag the unfortunate fowl Into the depths sufficiently to leave Its feet sticking in the air, where It can get no purchase upon tho uni verse, and thus drown it. Then the trout picks the feathers from the bird, eats It at its leisure and swims away out of the jurisdiction of the courts. Are there any fishermen? None? Too bad. This would boa match for one of their fish stories.” Costly Cyclopedia.
