Thieve hundred thirteen thousand
dollars contributed in one year by one
congregation, not for any special pur
pose, like building a new church, but
simply to carry on religious work, and
with the expectation of giving the same
sum in eacn succeeding year, is, says
the New York Tribune, the high water
mark of congregations in America, if
not in the world. That sum was given
by St. Iktrtholomew's Episcopal church
last year, according to the annual
statement just issued by the rector.
Ilev. Dr. Leighton Parks. A few years
ago when St. Bartholomew's was pros
pering to the astonishment of the
whole country, its income was $21!,
oim. With the change of rectors from
P.ishop Greer-to the former rector of
Emanuel church. liosron, fears wore
expressed that it might not maintain
its old record.
There were also heard statements
that the religious sentiment was fail
ing. Yet within three years St. Bar
tholomew's congregation has increas
ed its gilts by $lun,(MMi. Of this large
sum only $ I2.0U t is expended in the
maintenance of the church itself. All
the rest is expended for others, save
only $J.eti(i for necessary repairs.
Hence, for every dollar which the peo
ple of St. Bartholomew's expended for
themselves on worship in which they
took part they gave nearly $0 to oth
The pew rents in St. Bartholomew's
amounted last year to $11,135. About
$::n,ono was. given in thank offerings,
because last year was the 3oth anni
versary of English 'Christianity in
America. Offerings by those who had
paid the large sums for pew rents
amounted to no less than $101,:j0it for
the year. The number of salaried
workers of the parish is 2G2, and of

ary. One of the most striking stories !
of the month is "The Tenth Alexati-J

publishes in the Red Book Magazine
for February. A tale of the last of
the present reigning dynasty in Rus
sia, it appears at a singularly oppor
tune time when Russia's internal wor
ries have drawn all eyes to Uie czar's
domain. A second story in the same
issue of the Red Book Magazine which
carries a note of timeliness is "Their
Trial Marriage," by Mary K. Maule, in
which the author carries out George
Meredith's plan of a contract marriage.
A business story that every tradesman
will enjoy is "Fulsome, Tea and Cof
fee," by F. Warner Robinson. A tale
of the lower east side of New York is
Owen Kildare's "Compensation." A
slory of more than the usual power is
"The Playground of the Winds," by
Dane Coolidge. Other tales that help
to make the Red Book Magazine fir
February a really notable issue are
"The Sign," by Katherine Lynch; "The
Namesake and the Wax Madonna," by
Catherine Carr; "The Passing of Cali

"Mr. Roosevelt's action toward Rear
Admiral Brownson was brutal. It has
been too frequently of that description
in the official communications which
the head o'f this government has some
times found to be necessary between
himself and has subordinates. The
language would be startling if the. pub

what was your father thinking of to
let. you ride out in such weather?"
"Father doesn't know anything about
it," faltered Elvie miserably.
Mrs. Blake's glance went from- one
to the other as she poured the steam
ing coffee. There w ere little humorous,
indulgent creases in her face. "You
are running away," she said.
Elvira hung her head and began to
"Don't scold her. Aunt Hc-stcr

I asked her to go."
"Well, what's she crying about?"
questioned Mrs. Blake severely.
"Didn't she consent, or did you carry
her away by force. Charlie?"
"Of course he didu't," protested El
vira. "I said I'd go, but I wish I
hadn't. I was sorry right after we'd
started, and I I made Charlie stop
here instead of going to the minister's,

to quiver again.
"Well, he won't be worried long,
said Charlie, turning from the window.
"He-'s coming down the, road now."
Elvira sprang to her feet.
"Don't let hiia come iu, Aunt Hes
ter!" she cried excitedly. "He'll be
mad at Charlie!" )
"Let him!" fiercely from Charlie. "I
don't knov. 's I care."
"Don't say anything hateful to him,"
pleaded the girl piteously, "will you,
Don't worry, Elvie." replied the boy
soothingly. "I won't hurt him."
"I didn't mean that!" cried Elvie,
trembling and clinging to him. "1
don't want him to hurt you!"
"Would you care. Elvie':"
Elvira sobbed hysterically, her face
against his coat.
"Of course I'd care" in muffled tones
"you know Pel care."
Meanwhile Mrs. Blake watched the
floundering horse far down the road.
"He'll be here directly." she warned.
"You'd better get ahead of him."
But Elvie shrank back.
"I don't want to run away," she
wailed, still clinging to her lover.
Over her heael Charlie looker! with
despairing eyes at the older woman.
With swift determination to help hiiu,
she took the girl's trembling hanels in
hers. "Elvie," she demanded, "do you
love Charlie Broek?"
"Of course I do," answered Elvie,
looking at her In surprise.
"Well, then, I don't know's I ought
to advise it, but your mother's dead,
and your pa.'ll never let you marry
Charlie, because he's too poor, but
that's no reason for separatin' young
hearts. YouVe both got love and
health and strength, and, Elvie, you're
twenty-four and ought to know your
own mind, and if you love Charlie and
ain't got the courage to stand up in
f rout, of the minister, w hy, just stay
here and let your father take you back
home. But if you want to marry him
you'll go now and have the words said
before your father cau pull his horse
out of the drift, and I'll get my wraps
and go with you."
As she disappeared into the adjoin
ing room Elvie looked up into her
lover's face. "I'll do it, Charlie," she
whispered. "Aunt Hester's right She
always is. I'll go wherever you go."
"On second thoughts I've determined
to stay and have it out with the
squire," said Mrs. Blake as she hustled
the young people out to the cutter and
wrapped a warm rug around the trem
bling cirl. "Don't worry. Elvie. I'll
make it all right with your father,
Mind you come straight back here for
your dinner," she urged smilingly as
' lu' that Elvie's mother wa'n't.a uood
woman, but the Lord makes two people
for each otrTer and puts them into this
world to meet and marry and die to

He started eagerly to speak, but she
went on rapidly. j

"Hetty." a joyous warmth breaking
into tlie squire's voice "Hetty, you
said you said 'any niore'n you were.
Do you mean that you've cared, too,
all these years? Have you, Hetty?"
with compelling eyes en hers.
"Yes," she answered simply, "I've

the squire stammered slowly. . A great
wonder held him fast. Was this the
quiet, self repressl woman who all

from him every Sunday morning in
