He would return to the ho tel la the vIlhiKO, nt which he had beo'i n central figure until the day he liad gone with the Meltons In their big. rambling home on the li 111 ninolif? the maples. Hotel Ufe had Its draw backs, hut the proprietor had heeli un der contract not to room doting moth ers and leathery lunged Infants with in hearing of Mr. Lloyd's npartment. The next morning nt lircnkfast Mr. Lloyd's silence nnd gloom were In m:i--li(Kl contrast with the animated laido conversation regarding the visit ors who were to arrive that day. He had tried n dozen times during the inial to tell them that he was to give lip his room mid return tí) (he hotel, lint each fimo the words stuck In, his throat. lie finally decided that ho would cjulutly return to the house dur ing tho morning, put his tilings In or der nnd later send for them with a liolite note of explanation at the sud denness of his departure. True to bis resolution, Mr. Lloyd crept Into the house unobserved and placed hi3 effects In Rome semblance of order for removnl. With every sound from below bo fancied ho dis tinguished agonized Ripíenla In Infantile treble, mingled with the chorus of ndult volees In soothing efforts to quiet tho tempest. Wnnn und "flustered for n d'gnllicd bachelor of thirty-live. Mr. Lloyd slipped down the side htnliease, out on the little porch ta which led the short cut ui the hill from the rallrjad station. None of tho family bad observed his burglarious entrance or hasty exit, but. ninnies of Hlnekstono, n woman was coming along Hie narrow path over the rear lawn, directly up to the little porch a woman hi a neat traveling giwu and carrying 11 cult ense! "Caught!" groaned Mr. Lloyd aloud, nnd he felt a hot glow of shame ami vexation sweep over him. "Here's Martha, by all that has to do wiih babies, fat or lean, bipieuling or coo ing!" Tho fcininlno gender In tho traveling pown paused .at tho foot of tho steps, gazed in nmaemeut nt Mr. Lloyd's Htem und heated features nnd display ed from beneath a big hat the rsy face of a very pretty girl. Mr. Lluyd had not seen her prol'lo because of the hat, an 1 now that it came Into full view bo looked again and did not re move his eyes from the roguish ones that Fought his so Inquiringly. "Martha, I suppose?" ho ventured, Impolitely, scornfully and nudibly. "Sir!" The red Hps parted haughtily, nnd the trim figure straightened per ceptibly hi the traveling gown lit tho nt range salutation. "You're Martha. Mn. Melton's Risfer, of cjtirse, but whore's" Mr. Lloyd's voice dropped out of hearing ns sud denly us his courage. "I'm not Martha," she nnswerod rhnrpty. "To bo Fine you are," Insisted Mr. Lloyd, very (lrm!y. "Where's the-the baby?" "The wlnt?" cried Iho young lady wonderingly. "The baby-Martha's baby.

"I'm 'the baby.'" sha lnughing'y sr.ld ns ftlie sloid lir a moment on tlic threshold of tho door taking blm In from hend to foot, striving to fix tho Identity of ln:r mysterious cross ex aminer. "I am 'baby' still, despite my advanced nge nnd tho centuries of fu tile protest at my mother's tender for j;et fulness. Ild I not do well for OH Infant" this very saucily nnd boldly "to travel way from Albany to ltlalr vllle nil nl ne, only to meet n severe Interlocutor barring tho entrance to my mint's home?" "Hut Martha?" was all Mr. Lloyd could say. "Is my moHior, who will nrrlvo to morrow. I enmo nhead. Does this sat isfy you. Mr. Impertinence? riearo re move your foot from beneath my lng frngo nnd cany It Into the house. Ihi ble, you know, must have attention nnd ntteiidanco." . Mr, LI yd extracted lili foot witli nlaciHy. though he did not obey tho command. He had fought nnd won many hud legal battles, but here was n golden opportunity to prove that there are times when discretion Is the better part of valor. He fled, or, to bo truth ful, he limped abruptly down tho littlo path toward the village. As ho collect ed his thoughts, being a good lawyer nnd a wise Jurist, he decided to reviso nnd tt overrule hlj previous Judgment ns (o babies. "!iii babies eighteen years of ngo nnd upward, v.ith rosy chocks,, laugh ing eyes and fluffy li.ilr nnd s.mcy dim ples," mused Mr. Lloyd, a smih' play ing round the co-ncrs of his mouth, "do not c:nie within the purview of tho precedents you have her tofore cited to support your case. Judgment Is ne eon'ihi'.ly rendered for tho Infant de fendant, with costs to tho belligerent plaintiff. Case dismissed." Mr. Lloyd returned to the Melton boe.s"hold to dinner ns placidly as usual. As time progressed bo learned whether his decision ns to one girl baby In par ticular was to bo ntllrmod l y n higher court, from which there Is no appeal. GIANTS OF THE PAST PHEVIOU3 ACHS CUr PLY U3 WITH ENORMOUS FOSSIL BONES. Winter Flshlnpr. Whiter fishing has one merit, which all true sportsmen will recognize ns such namely, considerable uncertain ty. One day you may fish certain wa terswhether deep or shallow, whether weedy or free r.nd well nigh draw n blank, while the very next day tho same waters will give rich finny re turns. What Is more strange Is that not seldom on the samo day there will bo good luck In different depths nnd varying waters of tho same lako or pond, muí observation through the clear black lee of early winter or late nu tumn has convinced tho writer that those mystic lisliy moods of biting In winter are almost or quite Independent of tho movements of tho schools of "bait" fish. About nil that can be Raid ou such points in tho way of general suggestion i? that whiter lish bite usu ally better on a mild day than n cold one, best of all during n gentle thaw; that they take tho halt moro freely wider thin lee that Is, In early whiter than nfier the Ice lias thickened, nnd that they nppear to bo quito unaffected by noise, such ns tho rumble of skates or the gentle thunder of tho "settling" lee. It is certain that some of the beat strings of n lifetime havo been taken when tho fun of skating could bo Join ed with that of wutching the linos. Outing Magazine. Old Mirror Soiirrnt Itinn. The mistrust of the ghostly mirror Is so old and so far spread that we meet with it In tho folklore of every land. An old tradition warns us that tho now moon, which brings us such good for tuno when we look at It In tho calm evening sky, carries a message of evil lo those who see It first reflected In n looking glass. For such unlucky mor tals it 1 said that the lunar virus dis tills slow poison and corroding care. And, again, it Is declared that tho friends who glance nt their reflections standing sido by tldo nre doomed to quick dissension. In Scandinavia the Swedish girl who looks into her glass by candlelight Is told that she risks tho loss of her lover. One superstition in this connection that seems to bo al most universal Is flint It is very un lucky for n brido to seo herself In a mirror after her toilet Is completed. If she be discreet she will turn nwny from that fair pleturo which pleases her so well mid then draw on her glovo or havo some tiny ribbon, flower or Jewel fastened to her gown that tho sour fates may bo appealed and evil turned away from tho threshold. GftliiiK a Mexican I'nlrnt. To procure u 'patent in Mexico tho party making application, unless pres ent in peivou, must furnish his repre sentative wltli n letter of authority carta do poder hi Spanish signed by himself or herself in tho presoncu of two witnesses. Ordinarily legalization by a Mexican consul is not required. It must be borne In mind that ono car ta de poder will not answer for several applications, as each application for clihcr patent or trademark must bo ac companied by a separiitu carta do poiler. This must be accompanied by a full and completo description aud claims of nnd f ir the Invention. It they are sent In Spanish ready for filing they must be In triplicate on clear white paper IHO by millimeters, ap proximately 13 by 1H', Ihiglish Inches, written with typewriter on one sido only of tho paper, leaving on each Bhect a left hand margin of one-fourth tho width of the paper.

The Hrmarkable l'lated Lizard. Tho belief In n ruco of giants was cmeo almost uuiversul. liven today largo skeletons when found nro some times reported as being those of giant human beingi. This was especially true of the period nhut tho tenth nnd eleventh co'uturles, nnd In the latter a most nmaiing discovery was reponed, which threw tho scientific world of tho time Into great excitement It was said that tho body of Tallas, tho son of Kvnnder, had bren discovered beneath the tomb of tho Emperor Henry HI. The bones were enormous and proved to lmvo belonged to a huge fossil ele phant. As lato an tho fifteenth century :i war of words was waged over a llnil of largo bonos, one party claiming that they belonged to the giant Teutobochus. In lK.-7 n giant was discovered In Switzerland. The council of Lucerno requested a learned scientific man. Pro fessor I'elix Pinter of lWsol, to report upon It, nud ho not only announced tho bones ns part of n human giant, but made a complete restoration, showing tho man twenty feet high, which tho proud city ndopted as nn ancestor la tho nrms of the commonwealth. Unfor tunately for the theory nnd much to the Ciacomfituro of tho peo;!e who bad raised to a high pinnacle this mighty oncestor, It was found to bo tho re mains of nn elcp'innt. Nearly nil tho mnsto-lon finds were attributed to glnr.b;, but thero li no evi dence that n human giant ever existed over eight feet In height, and It U ex tremely doubtful it th:3 height was ever attained. C'ants other thr.n human nre very common In r.Il branches of tho animal kingdom giants In every sense when co:::parcd to their pygr.iy representa tive.! cr today, .orno years ago sr;me laborer.? In tho Semitic Liils of India i cngr.ged unon n government worlt when tb.ry came upon tho rc cir.lr.o of a turtle that proved beyond question that theso animals hnd their giants In the days of o!J. The shell which tho men exposed might have been used ns a shelter for several men. and at first, before H:j bony nature wus observed, It was thought by tho natives to be ft but of some kind. I'or tunnttly tho bones were uninjured, au.l they were, taken out and removed to tie British museum, where i completo restoration of tho animal may bo seen. The length of tho turtle was ten feet, Its horizontal circumference twe-uty-flve feet and Us girth fifteen feet, but It was cillniated by scientists that this wr.s not an adult and that when fully grown this hugo creature would display a dome-like back eight or iilno feet high, giving a total length of twenty feet. Ono of the common animnb In equa torial South America and In Central America Is the lizard Iguana, which attains a length of four or five feet and Is considered rather large, but It was n pygmy when compared to an ancestor that onco wandered over Eng land and various portions of tho world. X number of years ago some working men were escavatlng and blasting lu a quarry ueur Maldstone.Eiighiud.whiu some 'bones were uncovered that caus ed profound astonishment on the part of tho finders. Tho skeleton was per fect, nnd us It was lifted out, bone by bone, their iimnzcment Increased, nnd the news was spread all over tho coun try, attracting largo numbers of peo ple. When the bones were placed in their proper position they were found to bo the skeleton of a gigantic lizard that when allvo must havo been tlireo times as bulky as tho lurgest living do phnnt und stood upon its hlud legs lllio a Unngaroo, tearing down branches from the highest trees. Such on ani mal was a slow mover and sluggish nnd must havo fallen on easy prey to tho human hunters, if they existed. Tho marino giants were even moro bizarre aud remarkable than tho laud forms. If wo can imagino the little iguana lengthened out to thirty fcjt, its back spines Changed to broad tlulike objects, we form some Idea of the ap pearance of ono of tho small dinosaurs, Stegosaurus ungu!atus, one of tho most uncanny and reuiurkublo creatures ever found. It Is called tho plated lizard, and the bent skeleton wns found on tho eastern flank of the Rocky mountains. Some of the plates with which this ar mored lizard were protected were two or three foot In dlauieter nnd the spines over two feet in length. From the fact that the hind limbs were tho largest It Is evident that this strange creature could lift Itself up nnd sit like a kan garoo, resting upon Its powerful tall, which, with Its enormous spines, must havo been a terrible weapon. A giant from America had 'a skull that measured eight feet In length. Al most over the eyes were two largo horns, n third placed over tho nose. The great length of tho skull was given by u huge crest that was protected by a ridge of long jilotes. The mouth of tho trlcaratops was protected by a horny beak. In life It must havo presented a formldablo appearance, with a body clumsy and low like that of n hippo potamus, u long tall like nn nlllgntor's, Its head calling to mind the rhinoceros. Tills monster was twenty-five feet In length nnd mu;;t havo been one of the strongest nnlinals of Its time. London Spectator.
