Mrs. Maguire roilrd up her knitting
with a nervous click of the needles.
"If that .man don't quit hanging
round here," she muttered, " 'tis In the
crazy house I'll be."
She rose and turned her back on the
door of the outer Availing room. - But
the man's face haunted her. It was
the helpless look in his eyes of one
suddenly cut loose from the ordinary
routine of life and cast adrift which
Mrs. Maguire could not forget.
She had seen it many times in the
last few days, occasionally during the
Lours when he stood watching outward
bound passengers and more often as
he scanned the occupants of the ladies'
waiting room. In the weariness of his
search thb vigor of middle life was
giving place to age.
" 'Tis neither food nor sleep he's had
this week past," Mrs. Maguire thought
and turned with a sudden determina
tion to speak to him. .
Even as she did so he staggered and.
eat dowu weakly. One baud went out
and, grasping a newspaper which lay
near, held it before bis face. Above it
his eyes were fixed in a hungry gaze.
Mrs. Maguire knew that bis search
was ended.
She turned slowly, following the di
rection of bis eyes, and noticed for the
first time a small, pale woman sitting
with her profile toward the door. The
brown hair which lay softly on her
temples was plentifully streaked with
gray. Her blue eyes held the brightness
of unshed tears. The hands, which
held a shabby gripsack on her lap,
clutched it as if it were some fast
slipping resolve.
Mrs. Maguire left the room and went
straight to the man who sat outside.
"Is that who you've, been looking
for?" she asked quietly.
lie tore his gaze away with a start
of surprise and nodded.
"Your wife?"
Mrs. Maguire waited a moment. Then
she ventured again:
"What did she leave you for?"
"Don't lliiiik-it wasn't her fault"
lie stopped, choking. "She thought I
had stopped loving her."
Suddenly his face began to work.
"Hester," he muttered, with groping
fingers, "Hester you don't know
what the house is without you:-'
Mrs. Maguire laid a band on his
shoulder and shook him slightly.
"Iok here," , she demanded, "is it
trying to live without food or sleep
you've boon this past week?"
His eyes had tone back to the nuiet

Mrs. Maguire left him and sauntered
slowly back to her own domain. Pres
ently she approached the woman with
the shabby gripsack.
"Was it you who was asking mo
about the western trains, ma'am?"' she
inquired casually.
"No." The woman's eyes were
raised in mild surprise for a moment
as she shook her bead.
" 'Tis a more comfortable chair you
might as well have if you've long to
wait," Mrs. Maguire said civilly.
"Thank you, but it is hardly worth

evident desire to do something for the

she asked.
"Yes, ma'am; at 9:Co."
Then Mrs. Maguire moved away.
She picked up a magazine and leisurely
replaced it on the table, shook out
some pillows on a couch near the door
and slipped outside.
"'Tis to New York she's going," she
whispered eagerly to the maa who
still held the paper before his face.
"You've got twenty minutes. Take

staggering ye ore,"
What Mrs. Maguire did not see and
never knew of took place a quarter of
an hour later when a woman, eurerhig
the vestibule of a sleeping car, swayed
and lost her balance as the engine
backed against the train.
For a sickening second her eyes
closed. Her hands went out gropingly,
dropping the gripsack they had held.
Then the arm that was as the arm of
youth in the strength of its love went
round her. With a blessed sense of
safety, her eyes opened and rested on
the well worn edge of a familiar over
coat which only a few weeks before
her own fingers had repaired.
In the wavering light the face of tho
man, who through love of her and the
loss of her had aged within a week,
was white with pleading.
And the woman stumbled forward
against his breast.
"What She Uouffht.
"Was she willing to pay so much for
such an insignifieaut husband?" asked
the thoughtless girl.
"Oh. dear, no," replied the well post-
i ed girl. "She was buying a position In

i duke and not a husband. He was sim

Worm Discovered "Which la Said to
Kill the Vrnt.
Dr. Stiles of the public health service
at Washington is of the opinion that
there is a parasite of the mosquito
which may be employed to reduce the
pest, says the New York Times. This
is the merniis or round worm. It is a
threadlike creature with six papilla
and lives in tho stomach of the mos
quito. The Insect was brought to the atten
tion of the public health authorities by
Professor John B. Smith of Rutgers
college, a noted expert on mosquitoes.
While little is known yet of the habits
of tho menuls, It is believed that 1c
fastens on the rcosqulto in the water
and accompanies its host as the latter
develops from the pupa.
The infested mosquito is sluggish in
Its actions and evidently does not like
Its Inhabitants. It has been proved
beyond doubt that the inermis finally
causes the death of the mosquito, and
it is not unlikely that by cultivation the
parasite may be made to exterminate
or greatly reduce the mosquito pest

Mgr. F. Z. Rooker Describes the
Holy Father as He Saw Him.
The Bluhop of Jaro, I'liIUei'lne I
landa, Who IVaa In Home a Few
Week Ago, Sar Leo XIII. Seemed
the Same Great Mind Incaaed In
It Little Frame of Fleiih Incidents
of Hia Memory and Comprehensive
Sweep of Intellect.
Mgr. F. Z. Booker, bishop of Jaro,
rhillppiuo Islands, and for eight and
a half years secretary of the apostolic
delegation at Washington, returned
from Rome a few days ago. On June
IS he had a private audience with
Leo XIII. and on June 23 saw him
at the consistory. - He left Rome on
June 20 and consequently has a later
and more vivid impression of the pope
than any American who has recently
seen him. Indeed it is probable that
Mgr. Hooker was one of the last
Americans, If not the very last, to have
a private audience with the pope, says
the New York World.
"When I arrived at quarantine," said
Mgr. Hooker, "I was greatly shocked
to hear that the pope was in extremis.
I had heard at Faris before I sailed
that he was ill, but at that time it
seemed no more than an indisposition.
The news was particularly sad to me,
because I had Just come from Rome,
where I saw the pope twice, once pri
vately and once at the consistory, and
it seemed to me that he was destined
to live long."
Mgr. Rooker was called to Rome for
instruction in the new duties to which
the pope has assigned him. The pope
chose Mgr. Rooker and Mgr. Dougher
ty of Philadelphia as bishops for the
Philippines. Mgr. Rooker went to
Rome two months ago to study the
Philippine question as related to the
Roman Catholic church and to fit him
self for his new duties. He first saw
the pope twenty years ago. When he
was appointed secretary to tlie apos
tolic delegation, eight and a half years
ago, he had several audiences with the
"On June IS," says Mgr. Rooker, "I
had my last private audience with the
pope. I say private because It was,
although Mgr. Dougherty of Phila
delphia went in at the same time. We
were alone with the holy father.
"Our appointment was for 12 o'clock
noon, and we arrived at 11:30. Some
body was with the pope then, and we
sat iu the anteroom awaiting our time.
Shortly before 12 o'clock Mgr. RIggi,
prefect of the pontifical ceremonies,
went into the room where the pope was
sitting. He stayed but a moment, ne
was followed by Bisleti, the chamber
lain. He, too, stayed not longer than
thirty seconds. Then the door swung
open, and Bisleti beckoned to Dough
erty aridmyself to enter.
"I mention these details because they
ore necessary to show there was no
coaching by these dignitaries and to
emphasize the marvelous knowledge of
detail the pope has concerning the af
fairs and people of the church.
"Bisleti stood by the door as we en
tered. No one else was in the room
besides the pope, who was sitting by
a table in the center of the room and in
a flood of sunlight that fell from one
of the great windows. I had not seen
him for more than eight years. I ob
served him closely as we advanced. He
had not changed a particle in that
time. His face always appeared as If
It had been carved out of translucent
Carrara marble. It had that look then.
Ills frail body was clothed in his robes
of office, and he wore bis white cap.
He was motionless, apparently ill pro
found meditation. As we reached him
he turned his eyes on me. They are
marvelous eyes deep, luminous and
full of fire. They seemed to burn
under that broad, pale brow.
"The presentations were made. 'Ah,
yes.' said the pope; 'Rooker has been
our secretary at Washington for the
last eight years.' Then, patting the
palm of his left hand with the first
finger of his right, as if to count, he
continued, 'He has served there with
Satolli, with Martiuelli and wltb-r
"He hesitated a moment "With Fal
conio, too, holy father,' I prompted.
" 'Yes, yes,' he said, 'with Faleonio
"When he said my name he pro
nounced it correctly. That amazed me.
Eight years before he had given it the
Italian pronunciation, the double 'o'
and pronouncing it 'Rowker. He had
been corrected then and told that the
o'8 were short. He remembered, al
though to this day Rampoila and the
others all call me 'Rowker.'
"That is a little thing, but it shows
the character of the mind, the com
prehensive sweep of the Intellect of this
woiulerful man. Corrected in so insig
nificant a thing as the pronunciation
of the name of a humble worker in
the church, he had remembered for
eight years and had spoken the name
coirectly the first time.
"Greetings over, tho pope spoke to
Dougherty and myself for fifteen min
utes in Italian. He gave us an ex
hortation on our new duties in the
Philippines. He began with tho state
ment that he had sent for both of us
so as to save the time. He had the
same things to say to us.
"He said we had a very great oppor
tunity to labor for the welfare of the
church. ' He said that to his mind the
mission was paramount, in view of the
changed conditions in the Philippines.
He said the faith that has endured
for three hundred years must be pre
served, and exhorted us to go with
courage to our new field of labor. He
said he had especially chosen us for

the work, and that as we were both
Americans we certainly should go with
courage as well as with hope, for he
knew our church work would not be
hampered in any way and that we
could act with perfect liberty. He
called attention to the' liberal attitude
of the American civil government in
the Philippines and assured us we
should have no Impediment.
"The pope then went Into a concise
analysis of the conditions in the Phil
ippines, especially in regard to the
ehangod conditions since the American
occupation. It was the most illumi
ning address I ever heard. I had been
tn Home seven weeks, studying night
and day on the Philippine situation. I
had access to all the information there
was at the Vatican. I had worked
some days for twenty hours, and yet
in that fifteen minute talk of the pope
he condensed every particle of in
formation I had secured and much be
sides. "He had it at his fingers' ends, as he
ha.s all other matters relating to the
"It had been arranged that a party
of a dozen Americans should follow us
for an audience, and when the pope
had finished with us he sent word to
admit the party. We stepped to one
side. As the people came up the pope
had a pleasant word of greeting for
each. He blessed such articles as were
presented. There were several parish
priests, Americans, in the party. Ha
gave them the papal blessing. They
asked if they might convey that bless
ing to their congregations, and he said
they might Then, in order that they
might thoroughly understand what he
had said, he repeated in Latin tho
blessing bo had previously given to
them in Italian.
"While the party was going out
there was naturally some little delay,
and I stepped over to the side of the
pope and said:
" 'noly father, what impresses me
more than all else is to find you so little
changed in eight and one-half years.
"He looked up at me and smiled.
'And how do you find me?' he asked.
" 'I find you seemingly exactly the
same as when I last saw you,' I re
plied. "He smiled again, this time a curious,
half sad sort of a smile aud said, very
gravely, 'Ah, well; the years do pass.'
"I had marked him closely during
our interview and while he was re
ceiving the party of Americans. I
could find no trace of change. He
seemed the same great mind incased
In its little frame of flesh. He was
no thinner, no grayer, no more stooped,
and his face had not changed a par
ticle. He displayed considerable physic
al activity and was earnest and im
pressive when he talked. His mind
was as alert as it was when I first saw
him. There was no hesitation for
words, no grasping for ideas. He knew
what he wanted to say and said It like
a master of his subject. I knew he
was ninety-three years old. It was
marvelous. It almost seemed supernal.
"I saw him again on Juno 25, the day
of the consistory. That was one of
the hottest days I have ever known in
Rome. When it is hot in Home it is
very, very bo;. He went through that
long ceremony, lasting more than an
hour, without a break or a falter. The
chapel was crowded. It was stifling,
but tho pope fulfilled bis offices as
calmly and quietly as if he had been
in bis own chamber, cool and com
fortable. I am a big fellow and pretty
strong, but when I got out of that
chapel I was sick. I could eat no din
ner. The pope did not give evidence
of the slightest discomfort.
"I was to leave Home nest day, June
2(5, and before starting I went up to
the Vatican to see Centra, the pope's
personal attendant.
"Presently Centra came out. This
was the day after the consistory, mlud
you, when the pope had carried on that
tremendous ceremony and it had been
so hot.
"Centra said, 'Just as I received your
card the pope sent for me.'
" 'How is he this morning?' I asked.
"'Fine; like himself,' Centra replied
enthusiastically. 'He has been a bit
depressed for a few days at the
thought of the task of the consistory,
but this morning, now that that Is off
his mind, he is feeling better than be
has for weeks. It It like old times.
"That was the last I heard of him
directly. When I reached Paris I saw
reports in the papers of an indisposi
tion, but had no knowledge of how
serious the illness was until I arrived
at New York.
"I consider Leo XIII. one of the most
marvelous men of the age, church
considerations apart.

Dr. Viler Wnnta to Learn Effecta ot
Tobacco on Human Sj-ntem.
The United States government,
through Dr. Harvey V. Wiley, chief
chemist of the agricultural department,
will investigate the effect of tobacco on
tho human system, says a Washington
special to the New York World.
Dr. Wiley will make these experi
ments carefully and thoroughly. lie
Will not begin them until he has con
cluded his examination of adulterated
food products. He will probably utilize
the same class that has for several
weeks been fed on food containing
boric acid, and that beginning Oct. I
will experiment with salicylic acid.
When Dr. Wiley begins with tobacco
his inquiry will be pursued along tho
same lines as in tho case of food prod
ucts. Ho will take pure tobacco in va
rious forms, smoking and chewing, and
see what effect its use has upon tho
consumer whei taken In small quanti
ties and larger quantities. He will
then take tip the adulterated tobacco
or flavored tobacco and ascertain by
experiments what effect it has upon
the system.
Dr. Wiley has not decided whether
he will use foreign or domestic tobac
co. It Is Dr. Wiley's intention to take
men who are regular smokers and as
certain their physical condition as to
their heart cc-tlon, breathing and diges
tion while continuing the use of tobac
co under normal conditions and to have
