MARGARET'S LOVER. 1 e 9 TTKT PTtTTR. how nroud VOU must have felt when you won that $100 prize In your first story competition. I wonder what you did with all that sudden wealth." "I have never yet told any one what I first did with the money, Margaret," replied Mrs. Morris, "but It can do no harm to tell the story now. It all hap pened ten years ago. "As 1 was on my way home with the two crisp $50 bills in my pocket, I met a young man who had been one of my pupils two or three years before. He was quite a favorite of mine, and I had known his people for many years. On this day be turned and walked with me, and I soon guessed that be was In some deep trouble. After a while I won the story from him. He had been speculating In stocks and had 'bor rowed,' unknown to his employes, a hundred dollars of the firm's money. He had lost, and in despair at being unable to refund the money, had forged his uncle's name to a check, which, however, he had not yet found courage to present for payment "Well, the end of it was that the crisp $50 bills In my possession changed bands, the forged check was destroyed, and Charlie left me, with broken words of thanks and a few earnest promises for the future." "Did he ever repay you the money, auntie?" "Yes, he paid it all back in a few months. I believe be has always lived an honest, upright life since, and I have never regretted the first investment of my prize money." A short time later as Margaret Rlm mer was on her way borne, she heard a deep, manly voice say, "Good after noon. Miss Margaret," and Professor Hay fell into step by her side. "I have Just been calling on my Aunt Prudence," said Margaret, as they walked on slowly. "I have spent a de lightful afternoon reading some of her old stories. You know she won a hundred-dollar prize once with one of her first stories." "Yes, I remember," said the profes sor, somewhat absently, looking down as be spoke at a few fluffy curls that escaped from beneath the brim of his companion's bat "I remember that I met your aunt on that day that she received the prize, and she allowed me to walk part of the way borne with her. Yon know she was my teacher in the old high school." "No, I did not know it," replied Mar garet slowly, with a shock of surprise. To herself she was repeating with a sick heart, "This is the end of auntie's story; his name is Charles Hay, and it was be who walked home with auntie that day. He must never know that I know." She forced herself to take some part In the conversation, try ing to put aside for the time the thought of what this knowledge must mean to her, that she could never again look up to him with the old respect that the sweet fancies that had of late begun to come to her, of a dearer friendship between them, must be reso- be just the same again. When, a few days later, Mr. Hay called on Margaret, and In a few man ly words told her of bis love, Margaret gently, but decidedly, refused bis offer. She would give him no reason, except that it could never be. No, she cared for no one else but It could never be. So the professor went sadly away, and Margaret, with pale face and eyes dim with unshed tears, sought her room. For hours that night Margaret Rlm mer lay awake and wrestled with the problem was It fair to condemn the man of 30, honest respected, who had won bis place in the world, for the folly and sin of ten years ago? Had he not nobly redeemed the past? But still, bow could she respect him as she might If she bad never heard that wretched story? A forger, a thief. No, she could never trust her life's hap piness to one whom she could not rev erence as nobler, greater, than herself. Margaret was calling on her aunt a few days later, when Mrs. Morris re marked: "By the way, yon remember the story I told you about the young man whom I helped out of trouble with my prize money?" "Yes," said Margaret faintly, won dering what was to come. "He called on me yesterday, and brought me a photograph of his two children." "His children!" exclaimed Margaret "Yes, he Is married, and has a lovely wife and a pretty little home." Margaret listened as if In a dream. "Then then It was not Mr. Hay?" she stammered. "Mr. Hay! No. Indeed. Charles Hay Is the soul of honor. Why, what in the world made you connect him with this story?" He he said he walked home with you on the day you received the prize money. And he said be was one of your old pupils " Mrs Morris looked puzzled. "I may have met him that afternoon, and be may have walked part of the way home with me, but why, Margaret!" For the girl had thrown herself down beside her aunt and, with her face hid den in the folds of Mrs. Morris' gown. was half sobbing and half weeping. The older woman patted the girl's bowed bead, while her face lit up with a sudden understanding. The next time Margaret met the pro fessor she smiled on him so sweetly that the poor man was bewildered. They met frequently, and at Mar garet's request the professor resumed his calls. At last he ventured once more to tell her of his love, and this time her reply must have been a favor able one, for when the professor left, some time later, be walked as oce who had received a crown. And so, per- haps, he bad, for a man can win no , better crown than the love of a true woman. Boston Post Submarine Boats. Should the submarine boat take the place in uaval warfare that some na tions expect, one of the chief precau tions taken by the world's navies ! be an Immense increase In the number of balloons, with duly trained staffs to work them, carried by war vessels. The balloons carried by these battle ships are of exactly the same material and pattern as those In use in the army, only smaller. They have a use far in advance of any mere long-distance observational purpose, for, though the wake of a submarine boat sunk deeply in the water can only be traced with difficulty from such an elevation as that afforded by a ship, both such wake and the boat Itself can be seen with absolute and undeviating clear ness from a captive balloon. This Is tbe result of a scientific and optical law, and when ship balloons were first put to the practical test In regard to this matter, the results attained were of the most surprising kind. Even where the water Is distinctly cloudy, objects of a much smaller kind than a submarine boat and painted of neutral color, could be seen from a bal loon with the utmost clearness at a depth of five fathoms, or thirty feet though the surface was rough. No sub marine boat could in the daytime get within striking distance of a threaten ed ship that bad a balloon without be ing observed. RALEIGH'S LOST COLONY. North Carolina Community Which Con tains Some Novel Character. Representative Bellamy of North Carolina has some curious constituents. They are the descendants of the lost colony of Sir Walter Raleigh. It was In 1587, over three centuries ago, that Raleigh sent over a colony of 117 persons. Including seventeen wom en, and landed them on Roanoke lsl and, near Hatteras. Thirteen years later he sent over to find out how they were prospering. Roanoke Island was then deserted and no trace of the whereabouts of the settlers was to be discovered, except tbe single wo.d "Croatan" cut in a tree. To-day the Croatan Indians, who live in three or four counties of North Carolina, have blue eyes, although possessing other characteristics of the Indians the cop per color, the high cheek bone and the erect form. Many of them bear names that are English, such as Sampson, Berry, Wilkinson, etc., and which have been In the tribe for generations. They have traditions that their ancestors could read from books and in a score of other ways offer circumstantial evi dence that they have descended from Raleigh's colonists. Mr. Bellamy thinks that Congress ought to pay more attention to these people. "They are brave, but reck less," be says. "They are honest. In tensely religious, restless, active and energetic. Indolence and sloth are not known among them. They are eager for education. They are capable of in tellectual and moral development. A number of them have become success ful merchants. One of them became a United States Senator from a Southern State and the descendant of another has become a member of Congress." Washington Post Joking Under Difficulties. "The revenue cutters of the United States, as you may know," said an offi cer of one of them, who likes his little Joke, "confine their services, which are really invaluable to tbe government to the coast, and It Is a rare thing Indeed for any one of them, except those of the Bering Sea patrol, to venture any distance out to sea. Nor Is this rule an unsatisfactory one, for, say what you please about it sea service Is not as pleasant as the nevelists and other ro mancers would have you- believe. In deed, the sailor who prefers the bound lng billows, a wet sheet and a flowing sea and all the rest of It to a calm and peaceful shore snap Is the exception. But I am getting off of my story, which applies to the cutter Grant, when she was doing duty In New York bay and vicinity. Something had happened to call her out down the shore somewhere, and she left the bay one afternoon, and early the next morning, while she was bowling along at about seven knots an hour, she hailed a big four-master. " 'What ship is that?' came the cry from the Grant " 'The Royal Bengal Tiger, 243 days out from Calcutta,' came the reply. 'What ship is that? " 'Revenue cutter Grant' was the plaintive answer, 'and we've been out all night' "Washington Star. New Wood for Railroad Ties. A new and thoroughly suitable wood for railroad ties has been found in the forests in the northern part of tbe Ar gentine Republic. It is the red cue bracho. It is an exceedingly hard wood and In Its Interior, not alone In the bark, Is 15 to 20 per cent of tannin, which keeps the wood from rotting, no matter In what substance it is buried. The wood has been used in Europe for tanning, but outside of the Argen tine Republic Its utility to railroads. It seems, Is yet to be discovered and ap preciated. Posts made of this wood which have been buried fifty years in land furrowed and gullied by the tor rential rains of summer have been found to be in as good condition as If they had been felled recently. In the Argentine Republic ballasts for rail road beds Is unknown, and the ties are laid in the ground, which frequent ly Is sandy and exposed to heavy rains and dried by Intense heat So iron cross ties were used until It was found that the red cuebracho was undeniably the best wood that could be used for the purpose. It not only is so hard a wood that it has to be bored before spikes and bolts can be driven into It but It is unusually heavy. It does not split or become compressed with blows.

"It took me some time to grasp the American point of 'view in regard to letters of Introduction," said an En glish traveler, chatting over American characteristics, "When we give a man a letter of Introduction at home, we consider that we are vouching for him socially, financially and every other way, so, needless to say, It is never done except among relatives or the closest friends. Here you don't seem to take the thing seriously. When I was in Washington last week I was in troduced to a very pleasant gentleman In tbe real estate business, and chanced to mention that I was going to Nash ville next day. 'Oh, Indeed!' he said, 'then I'll just give you a line to an old chum of mine there,' and immediately he took out a pad of paper and began writing. 'By the way,' he remarked, after jotting down a few words, 'I didn't even know my, name struck me is the proper spelling?' The Idea of a stranger giving me a letter of introduc tion to an intimate friend when he didn't eve nknow my name struck me as very strange and amusing. How ever, I took it with thanks, and later found the Nashville man a very charm ing fellow. When I left he Insisted on giving me a note to a friend in Mem phis, who proved equally charming, and who, In turn, supplied me with an introduction to a prominent clubman here in New Orleans. "The last letter I haven't presented. and don't intend to, because It contains a glaring, though inadvertent misstate ment In referring to me as an old and cherished friend of the good-natured gentlemen of Nashville and Washing ton. The process, as you see, has built me up an entirely fictitious character, and 'pon my word, I can't understand why such friendliness Is npt continual ly and outrageously abused by impos tors. I'm sure It would be on our side of the water." Baltimore News. Why He Got It. There Is a sentiment common to the most of mankind which makes one's own home and neighbors the best there are In the world, and even a stranger who hails from tbe home town the most welcome friend to be met away from there. Nevertheless, such an illustra tion of it as the following, told by Gen. 8ir Redvers Buller, is rare: The story was told the Rev. S. Bar Ing-Gould by Gen. Buller himself, and Is narrated In the author's words as far as possible. Sir Redvers was on his way, with a regiment of soldiers, to Canada. Off the entrance of the St. Lawrence the vessel was enveloped in fogs and de layed so that provisions ran short. Now there was a station on an Islet with supplies for shipwrecked mariners, so Sir Redvers went ashore in a "boat, to visit the store and ask for assistance. When he applied he found a woman only in charge. "No," said she, "the supplies are for those who are shipwrecked not for such as you." "But this Is a Government depot, and we are servants of the crown." "Can't help tt; you're not shipwreck ed." There was a very recognizable Into nation in the woman's voice. Sir Red vers at once assumed the Cornish ac cent, and said: "What not for dear old One and All, and I a Buller?" "What from Cornwall, and a Buler? Take everything there Is In the place; you're heartily welcome!" Origin of Rod and Line. Obviously the answer to the conun drum, "Who discovered rod-fishing in the sea?" is the first man who found he could not dangle effectively a hand line over the edge of some precipitous shore, with rocks projecting at the foot Later, when this noble savage began to burn out trees to make boats. the fisherman of the period doubtless boomed out a line on each side of the craft of the period so as to enable him to work four lines. Go to the wildest portions of these Islands and we find' the same practices continued. In the far north, little barelegged Highlanders sit on ste?p rocks bobbing for cuddles, rod In hand, and without doubt much the same thing may have been seen any summer this century or two, as long, indeed, as there have been cuddies and laddies to catch them. Go to the northwest of Ireland, and there the descendants of wild men row or sail, with bamboo rods, stuck out from the sterna of their boats, like quill stuck by wicked pupils in wigs of eighteenth century pedagogues. Flies, mind you, at the end of the lines. Real fly-fishing in the sea, and catching glissaunes (youthful coal fish) by the hundred. And this done for ages; and people want to know who discovered or introduced rod-fishing In the sea! Why, the practice Is as old as the hills, metaphoriaclly speaking per haps older than some hills. Fishing Gazette. The Bride and Groom. "The wedding ring completes the cir cle, typical as is the ring itself of the perpetuity of the compact," writes Mrs. Burton Klngsland In the Ladies' Home Journal. "Inside the ring always a plain gold one are engraved the ini tials of bride and bridegroom, and the date of the marriage. It is placed on the third finger of the left hand be cause of the fanciful conceit that from that finger a nerve goes straight to the heart. "Some say that the word 'obey' in the marriage service is an anachronism and holds only those who choose to be bound, but American women do not often feel their chains. In some prov inces of Russia the bride's father gives her a little cut with a whip, which In strument of correction he then pre sents to the groom for future emergen cies. "The kiss formerly given by the young husband to his bride after the words, I pronounce you man and wife' for which so many rehearsals were necessary has gone out of -fash ion. "It Is a time-honored observance of wedding etiquette that the bride shall not be seen by the bridegroom on the fateful day until she appears coming up the aisle to meet him. Hence the custom of the bridegroom's waiting at the altar. The bridal procession is for him not a pageant for tbe guests." Toujour! La, Polltegao. "During a recent sharp skirmish," lays "The Sphere," "an English officer in South Africa noticed that one of his runs was in danger. Calling an officer to his side be requested him to go and help tbe captain to try and bring it in. 'Pardon,' he added, as the officer turn id to obey, 'perhaps yon do not know the captain.' The officer had not the pleasure. 'I'll introduce you, then charming fellow,' said his lordship, tnd, regardless of bursting shells and puffs of dirt which marked the pitch ftf bullets all around them, he can tered along the hillside with him. 'Captain,' he shouted, 'let me intro duce my friend. Mr. B.. Captain A. He will lend you a hand to bring in ;hat gun; hope neither of you will be mocked over doing it.'
