At the Garden Gate By GEORGE ELMER COBB (Copyright, 1111, Wootora Nswspaper Union.; Bruce Tyrell and Alda Wrenn were acting out a sweet little love story all by themselves. So far they were only friends they told themselves, hut their Inner consciousness revealed to them that they were fast drifting into that delightful phase of super-exist ence where life is one rose-tinted, de lirious whirl of ecstatic Joy. Alda was a schoolteacher. So was her sister, Marcia, In a rural district fifty miles distant. The family was a pleasant one, the mother of the old fashioned, fast-disappearing type, In dulgent and sympathetic, the father a storekeeper of the town with trade enough to keep things comfortable. He was content, and not willing to covet business expansion at the cost of risking Ills little capital and pass ing sleepless nights worrying over It. It was by mere chance flint Bruce had become acquainted with Alda. The biggest rainstorm Hillsboro had ever known was on the program In active display, one warm spring after noon, when he was absolutely iiih rooned upon a rise of ground near the roadside, with no shelter except an open stock shed. Ho was rather glad of the company of two horses which crowded out of the drenching rain with him. They were docile and friendly. It had begun raining just after the hell of the little crossroads sclioolhonse called In the odd two dozen scholars from the playground. There was no afternoon recess, for the rain never let up until four o’clock. By that time the roadway was n rush ing torrent and the water was up over the steps of the little frame building. At Its open doorway stood the pretty schoolteacher, with a dismayed face noting the grewdome prospect, while at the windows the pupils crowded generally, very much entertained by the novelty of their situation. Conditions were less discouraging nt the roof shelter. The water hud been over shoe tops for an hour, but a run of a hundred feet In knee-deep water would have landed Bruce on the higher level. A sturdy framework of planks, apparently used as a bridge across some creek or ditch, had been swept from Its moorings and had landed directly against the side of the shelter shed. There came s final fear ful downpour, resembling a cloud burst, Bruce saw. that the water hud come up clear over the threshold of the little schoolhouse and was pour ing In over the floor. "Something ought to be done for those refugees. They’ll begin to get frightened soon. There may bo no danger, hut there will be some wail ing among those little tots when It be gins to get dark." Bruce studied the watery waste be tween the shed and the schoolhouxc, and then tried to calculate how far the floating, hut stalled platform might be utilized ns a raft. When he waded around to It the water was up to his knees, and he doubted not that it was waist high farther down the slant in the direction of the marooned pupils nnd their teacher. Across one side of the sited was stretched a long pole be yond which ■ food trough had been placed to contain fodder for the horses. It was thick, staunch and secured by nails nt both ends. "The very thing," decided Bruce, tore It loose, wuded to the platform and got U|>on It. Then using the |>nle as deftly ns he had manipulated It when a lad playing the castaway afloat on a home pool, he started his bulky bark in the direction of the be leaguered ones caged within the little schoolhouse. He was Inspired mightily to diligent effort as the schoolmistress appeared at its door, waving her handkerchief encouragingly . The little ones clus tered about her nnd st the windows, keeping tip a babel of excited cries nnd cheers. The experiment was n rare success, and as, for the first time close at hand, the eyes of Bruce rested on the lovely face of Aidu Wrenn, he felt all his trouble well recompensed. In the three groups the little ones were rafted across the expanse to where Miss Wrenn, fully familiar with the topography of the vicinity, pointed out a rising bluff path. Dry shod nnd fluttering with rare excitement, the little ones dispersed, able to reach their homes In safety. Miss Wren In sisted on remaining behind until the Inst of her charges were safely deliv ered from peril and discomfort. "How can ws ever thank you for your wonderful work?" she fluttered, as she stepped upon the raft. "Wliat Is that?" she added, with a quick backward glance. Then she shuddered. A grinding creak had sounded out; the underpinning of one end of the school house had given way. Lopsided, the structure toppled and rested four feet deep In the water, crushing the door and windows out of shape, n wreck. Bruce Tyrrell found himself quite s hero In the eyes of the little commu nity after that. But, still better to hi* method of appreciation, he became n welcome visitor st the Wrenn home. Alda's face was radiant whenever he appeared and all the world seemed sunshine to Bruce, subject of a first attack of that Incurable disease—love. There came a cloud over the spirit of his dreams one dny. A* he was passing through a little park square, he diverted his course, but his gaze was fixed on Alda, seated on a bench beside a young man, ■ stranger. They were ao very dose together that he teemed to whisper to her' at times. Then as they urose to separate, Alda seized both hands of the handsome young fellow and held In a fervent clasp, meanwhile looking earnestly into his eyes. “Who enn he be? And she?" reflect ed Bruce In a troubled way! "Can It be possible that her heart is ulrendy en gaged and that I am blindly hoping for a love that can never be mine?” Bruce grew depressed nnd was half minded to cease his visits to the Wrenn home. Ho was magnanimous concerning Aldn, for although their re lations had been friendly she had really never given him any definite en couragement ns a suitor. She was no coquette, he was sure of that, and he blamed his own sanguine nature for the daring presumption that Aids's handclasp hod at times been lingering nnd tender, and that her eyes respond ed sympathetically to his own ardent gtances. "I can hnrdly break the engage ment for this evening," meditated Bruce, "but tomorrow!" Alda and himself were to attend a party at Wildwood, a few miles dis tant on the trolley line. Bruce called for her that evening. Never had she looked so beautiful. A pretty locket and chain he had never noticed before were her only Jewelry adornments. Bruce sighed as he recalled that hut for his discovery of the day, ho in tended to present her with a friend ship ring he carried In his pocket. Her acceptance of ft would have decided him ns to the fact that there was some real depth to the Interest she had man ifested In hlin. And, further, never had she been more charming In the kindly, pleas ant way In which she received his at tentions. He partly took heart of hope that he might be entertaining a suspicion without foundation. Still, he was constrained and unhappy all the evening. As they left the trolley car on the return trip and proceeded towards Alda's home, the latter paused ab ruptly with a little cry of dismay. "Oh. dear!" site exclaimed, her hand to her throat, "I have lost the locket." "Are you sqre?" questioned Bruce solicitously. "Oh, yes, I had it when I got n!>onrd the cur." She shook her dress and they re traced their way to the trolley station. It wus bright moonlight, hut their searching eyes discovered no trace of the missing article of Jewelry. "You had bettor let me see you home,” suggested Bruce. "Then I will return and wait till the car comes hark on its return trip. It mny be that you lost the locket on the car." "I shall wait up for your report," said Aldn. "I am very anxious about the locket." , Bruce signaled nnd hnltcd the car as It returned. At his first question regarding the locket nnd chain the conductor produced the lost article. “Just found It under a sent," he ex plained. and Bruce hastened to Im part the glad news to Alda. He turned the locket over and over In his hand. Its upper case came open. "It Is as I feared!" he half groaned, and well he might, for a bright ray of monpllght revealed a circular photo graph within the case. It was that of the man he had seen with Alda that afternoon. Oh, there was no doubt now of the existence of a rival! Bruce had one thought only in his mind—to return the locket to Aldn and forget her. "Just a minute, please," spoke a voice behind him as he neared the Wrenn home, nnd Bruce faced a new, astounding circumstance. Turning, he confronted the original of the photo graph. "You are Mr. Tyrrell," spoke the other. "I have heard Alda—that Is, Miss Wrenn—speak of you nnd have seen you once or twice before this. I also know you are her close friend. Will you do me a great favor? Are you going to her home?" "Yes," answered Bruce, and gruffly, and darkly suspicious. "Will you hnnd her this note?” nnd the other tendered a folded paper. "Why should I?” resented Bruce, drawing hack coldly. "Must I tell you?" questioned his companion. "Yes. I will. Alda says you are a man to trust Well, then. I am secretly married to Alda's sister, and the note tells her that Marcia will be here In the morning to break the news to her parents." "Oh!" It was passed by as a mere common place aspiration by Alda's hrother-ln law. For Bruce It expressed relief, and hope and Joy. With alacrity he accepted the commission and with de light. He listened later to Alda’s ex planation that her sister had left the locket at home on her Inst visit, und Aldn had borrowed It for the occasion of the party. And then Bruce felt that he should also unburden his heart, which he did, nnd graciously Alda listened to him. and the white moonlight Irrndlnted two glowing, happy faces ns Bruce kissed his fiancee good night at the garden gate. Too Familiar. A country hotel, a good deni fre quented by motorists, took In a show man and his performing hear, nnd one morning the hear escaped from the stable. Everybody fled before the ani mal. The hotel man, however, pur sued It courageously. It entered the hotel, mounted the stairway, pushed open a bedroom door and vanished. The hotel tnsn, close behind, honrd from the bedroom an angry exclama tion in a feminine voice and the words: "George, dear, how often have I forbidden you to come Into my room without knocking—nnd In your auto moblls coat, tool* ... DEPEW MIXED IN HIS FACTS Venerable New York Statesman a Little Ahead of Time in Use of Term "Highbrow." Who were “the highbrows of forty years ago," of whom Cliauncey M. Depew spoke in giving Ills recollec tions of Theodore Roosevelt at the Methodist preachers’ conference? - The venerable ex-senator, relating the circumstances of Mr. Roosevelt’s political debut In 1880, quoted “a Re publican district leader" as suggesting to him tlit* nomination of the young Harvard graduate for usseiuhlyman to placate the element In his district "which the hoys call ‘high brow,’ liv ing along Fifth avenue." Was there "any slch animal" at thut time? It was four years before the appearance of the mugwump, who. though a highbrow according to ills lights, was not the simon-pure article. His was not "a superior attitude toward the generality of mankind,” but only toward certain political rep resentatives of it. The real highbrow was yet to come. Was Will Irwin his Inventor? Es* curslons Into the origins of words are always hazards, even In the ease of contemporary coinage, but It appear* to he sullielently well authenticated that highbrow Is a more recent prod uct than Mr. Depew would have us suppose. Indeed, highball got Into the diction aries before highbrow, which Is not cited in the Century of 1011 or the Webster of 1010, though It appears in the New Standard of 1013. An octogenarian memory, though It Is a marvelous storehouse of events, may tit times deceive Its possessor. What the district leader probably said was "silk stockings." Mr. Depew has apparently merely confused the period at which the grow ing Indulgence of the proletariat In silk stockings caused the term to he superseded by “highbrows." New York World. PROVING THAT “WOMAN PAYS” Tragedy of War None the Less Pitiful • Because Not Expressed in Blood and Fire. Upstairs in the Idg hospital a young woman was greeting her soldier fiance hack from Flanders, luidly wounded. In tile waiting room the Woman Who Saw tried to kill time by writing a let ter. Suddenly the page grew blurred, and the pen stopped. Willy-nilly, she was listening to one of war’s tragedies, albeit this was not expressed In blood and lire. For the sergeant with the bandaged arm was telling the girl who snt beside him on tiie sofa that he no longer caretl for her. Like the stroke of u bludgeon came bis words, carrying clearly to the listener, who could not stop her ears. 'Tin sorry, hut I care for her more, that’s all. Perhaps If I'd never seen her we'd linve got along all right. Blit I ditl. and as soon as I can send for her I’m going to marry her. I was bil leted with her mother, and we got ac quainted, nnd it Just happened. Sorry, but it can’t he helped. Her name's Marie," he concluded. And then silence fell heavily. Not a word spoke the rather plain-looking girl beside him. Nor did site cry. After a little she look from her hand a ring, with such u tiny stone, und thrust it nt him. "Give It to her," she said. And wit li mit a backward glance she left the room.—London Mall. Restoring Oil Paintings. To repair an oil painting which show’s blemishes, such ns cracks, pro ceed as follows: Fill a shallow dish with alcohol nnd place lh«‘picture face downward over It, taking care that It does not actually touch the liquid. The fumes from the alcohol rise to the paint, and In a few minutes the cracks fill up and the colors appear bright mid new. It Is necessary to watch the process closely. for If the painting Is ••X|K»sed to the fumes too long Uie colors will run together and the pic ture will he spoiled. With reason able care this should never happen, nnd old paintings which would other wise have to he thrown away can be made as good as new. Abandon Big Kelp Plant. The plant for reducing kelp, erected at San Diego, Cal., at a cost of $T).500,- bOO, is to he abandoned because the cost of harvesting and handling the kelp Is higher than the pence time prices obtained for the products, ac cording to Dr. W. !. Noot, who has been connected with the chemical de partment of the kelp works, says Seattle I’ost-Intelllgencer. l!e says, however, that the people who are burn ing kelp after drying It will continue to produce potash, which Is mixed with mineral products from the packing houses nnd sold for fertilizer. Doctor Noot says something Is attacking the kelp and that the beds will entirely disappear. Bright Idas for Feminine Apparel. Professor Cl nil cl an noted certain substances that have the permanent quality of developing intense brilliancy of color when brought near the light and fading away to dullness again as the light decreases. He urged re search with a view to obtaining an increased number of these bodies and their possible application to textile fabrics.

Elsa’s Fortune By VICTOR REDCLIFFE iCopyright. 11)19, by WmKra Nt#spspsr Union.) "You have been a loyal and efficient employee. Miss Norris," said John Baird to Ills stenographer, “and 1 wish you to accept this as a slight token of my appreciation of your services." Bnlrd & Co. were going out of busi ness ami Elsa had been assisting the head of the house disposing of the pa pers in Ids desk, lie laid laid aside an oblong envelope, from which he drew two homllike-looking documents. "These are two shares of stock In the Aetna Coal company." proceeded Mr. Bnlrd. "Their par value Is one hundred dollars each, hut I do not know their sale price. However, the company has paid five per cent divi dends regularly." Elsa’s pretty eyes showed her ap preciation of the unexpected gift. Mr. Baird signed the transfer blank and she felt quite opulent. "And now for a month of real vaca tion !" Jubilated Elsa, luxuriously, packed her belongings at her hoarding bouse that evening and the next morn ing took a train for Yorkton. the home of her nearest living relative. Aunt Noriih Bliss. Two weeks later Morton Drake, a city broker, was hailed on the street by a boyish young fellow who luid hurried Ids steps to overtake him. "Oil. Mr. Drake!" spoke Ned Wal dron a trifle breathlessly, “I’ve hur ried after you to give you a sure tip. You got me iny place and I want to try nnd do something for you. There’s a idg deal going on with the Aetna Coal company. My sister works there and she says there’s going to he a merger, and they’re buying In all the stock they can get at any price asked." "Thank you, Ned.” replied Drake. ’That may be worth something to me." Drake was n young business man. but profoundly expert In brokerage tactics. When he got hack to the of-, flee lie looked up the list of the stock bidders of the Aetna Coal comp my. Outside of officers anil director* In control he found only about half n dozen scattered holders of the securi ties of the company. Out of these, phoned or wired to. nil hut one replied that they had recently sold their stock. From John Bnlrd. listed a* holding two slid res, a brief letter an nounced that the same luid been trans ferred anil were In the possession of Miss Elsa Norris. Yorkton. Then Ned came to Drake with some decidedly Important Information. It was to the effect that each of the rival factions in the Aetna Coal company was straining every nerve to secure a majority of the stock. Drake In vestigated for himself. He lost no time sifter that In getting down to Yorkton. lie never forgot the twelve hours lie spent there; he never ceased after that to cherish In the picture gallery of Ids soul the sweetest face he had ever seen. Elsa received him ingenuously, her mint with courtesy and welcome. "I hnvo been told that you hold two hundred dollars of the stock of' tin* Aetna Coal company," he slnted III* mission. "Yes, two shares," assented Elsa. "Mr. Bn Ini so Informed me and I am prepared to offer you live hundred dollar* for the securities," and Aunt Norah barely suppressed a shriek of amazement and Elsa cried out. "Oh. that will just pay off your mortgage, dear Aunt Norah!" Drake counted out the amount he tind named. Elsa, deeming herself fortunate beyond belief, was so happy spirited she could scarcely contain herself. Aunt Norah Invited tills bear er of opulence to tea. Just after the men! n storm came up. Both Aunt and,niece did their utmost to enter tain their visitor and the hours glided away all too swiftly for the city mail, fascinated by the simple Joys of that humble but hospitable home. "I hope we kliiill see you again." spoke Aunt Norah, as. the storm over. Drake arose to take his departure for Ills hotel, and Elsa’s bright eyes mute ly but expressively echoed the Implied Invitation. Morion Drake did not rest very well that night—for reasons. Every time he thought of Elsa Norris he experi enced a wayward Impulse to make her . certain confession. "Miss Norris." lie said, as Elsa emue to the door," here Is a receipt I neg lected to give you." "Why. wlint Is It?" asked Elsa In surprise. "Well, yotl see. being a broker, while I have paid you for that stock. I have an Inkling that It may sell for more money, and In all fairness to n client who trusts me I wish you to have the benefit of whatever may come of It." Morton Drake was not wrong In Ills surmise. Those two -dmres of stock were the only one* out standing whlrti could swing the major ity as to voting power In the coal com pany. He knew how to bargain and received for them an extravagant sain. It was Ned whom he chose as hi* envoy t<» inform El*n that she was the legal owner of seven thousand live hundred dollars nnd Ned. who guessed Ills secret hive, blurted out the truth to Fisa, who secretly realised that the affection of Drake was more to her tli»ti) the money. And Aunt Norah Insisted that Drake cum* to Yorkton to receive their thanks, and lit Yorkton he lingered until he was made happy by the con viction thut bln lovs was returned.
