Why no otto had wet me at the station in answer to the telegram I had sent from New York, I could not explain. I was much disap pointed, but eagerly hastened to the house. There 1 found everything in darkness and, thinking the folks had probably not received the message tell ing of my unexpected leave of absence and had gone to the theater, I went ip to my room and was soon fast asleep. Next morning I was aroused by a lapping on my door. Drowsily I an swered something about being sleepy and rolled over again. How much j longer I slept J do not know, but again was awakened by a more insistent knock.' Remembering Bobs Intense delight in the past in atrociously tor menting me whenever he thought I wanted to stay In bed, I answered as grouchily as of old: "Quit that pounding, won't you, and let me alone!" "Why, papa, you cross old bear, you!" I heard a silvery voice exclaim. Tm coming right la to pull yon out if you aren't up before I count three, j Come, now one!" j Thunderstruck at the sound of a j voice so different from what I had ex- j pected, I sat bolt upright, not quite J certain I was not dreaming. As I did j ko mv eves fttl ,mon the furnishing of the room, and, by the sunlight : streaming in, I could see they were not those of the den I had left a year be fore. Everything was changed. In stantly I realized that some one must now be in possession of our old home, though for what reason or how long I had no time to coniecmro. It was startling enough to know that I was in somebody else's bed and might have some difficult in explaining my pres- ence there. Moreover, if that- Two'" I Mr.er.. Un-r.f TV, a f.il! mc-in.

If 1 were to ntter so much as a single word my voice would doubtless betray me, while, if I t attempted to bar the door The cold sweat oozed out on my face and limbs. Three!" triumphantly;. "I'm com ing." With an Involuntary movement I clutched the bed covers and drew them over my head, a3 if the hiding of my face would end the matter. Just then the knob turned; the door creaked. I ! heard the rattle of a skirt. With a ! hound I reached the door before it had , opened very far and set my weight against it. I Why, papa, what is the matter t i Let me In at once. There you can't i stop me now. An arm and foot of , feminine proportions squeezed through the aperture before 1 could prevent ; them. To push harder was oniy to in jure the innocent possessor, yet close that, door I must. "I'm going to get in, see If I don't,' j and a tangled mass of golden hair ! pushed partly Into the opening, while ; the extended hand groped ominously to and fro, seeking to find and push me away. Finally the fingers touched my wrist and closed tightly around It I : could not shake tbem off. j Please let me in, papa. You never ; acted so be " The sentence remained , unfinished and broke off in a fright ened gasp. Suddenly I thought of the mirror I j had caught, a. glimpse of at the side ; of the room, and looked up to see a ; pair of terror-stricken c yr s gaing wild ly into my own. Fcr a full half-minute we stood there, then the hold upon my i hand relaxed, the arm and curls slowly withdrew, and I heard her sink to the floor. A moment later I was in the hall, dashing water upon an upturned face, from which eveiv trace of color had fled, forgetful of rhe fact that I was a stranger and only partly clad. But the rest of the story, and what came of it, is much too long to narrate here. Suffice it to sav, that mv moth- r had bold tiie hop extend and started on a trip to buroj e, set-sing to sur prise me by an unannounced visit. An estimable family had been the pur chasers, and the father, by some strange coincidence, hail been de tained In the city t) at evening and neglected to notify ids w ife of hi ab sence.

THE TRAGEDIES OF PARIS. Record cf the Seamy Side of the Coy Frsncb Capiial. From 1.000 to l.COO bodies are re ctdved in the morgue in Paris' every year. These represent suicides and murders, and net the deaths that oc- i cur in toe ordinary course or events. And of these sclf-shiughterers nearly half are drownings, which means that every day at least two persons jump into the Seine; two poor wretches who have failed to find life worth liv ing, in the months of October and November suicides by drowning in Pan's a 'T double what they are the r maiud t of th ; year. The prospect ! t f living to sutler the hardships of f.aotlw winter, begsiag about tn the ;: "u""" i ' 13 oi much itir many a lato-cursert wan- derCr. An interesting fact revealed by the suicide s.i-nisUes of Paris is that women show a decided dislike to drowning ns a ier,ns of -violent death. ! Fe-'-.r times ns many men as women are fished out or the Seine. The rec I orris .show that asphyxiation is the fa J write way with the weaker sex "for i shtiiilng oCf this mortal coil," when it has ceased to bo bearable. Yes, if That Had Bsen the Case. Dinny had hurriedly summoned a doctor to administer to an acquaint ance who had accidentally taken poi son. Aft'-r the physician had given the sick man a dose of medicine he remarked that the medicine was an antidote for the poison and that ha hoped the patient would pull through all ri.eht. In spite of the antidote, however, the sick man grew rapidly worse and died: That night at the wake Diuny was loud in his denunci ation of Ihe doctor. "Poor John 'd 've been alive this noight," he ex claimed bitterly, "If thot docther hadn't hastened his death wid one iv his anecdotea!" Harper's Weekly. Rescue Chamber In Mine.

The young man set bis jaw.'You're just as mad as you can be about It!" he told her. "And that's why you are so particularly hateful to me now! You wouldn't take so much pains to pretend that you didn't care if you weren't furious!" "Don't be conceited, Archie," she begged him. "I like you so much that It" grieves me to find you are as egotistical as most men. You really, truly don't imagine, do you, that it makes the slightest difference to me whether you prefer another girl to me?''1-' Tha young Wan looked at her, helpn less and admiring. '"Yon certainly can grab a chance to hit back when you see it can't you?" he asked. "Well, if you won't admit that you're mad, at least confess that you are dying to have me explain. The control you have of your curiosity is realiy won derful." The young woman regarded him with an aloof air. "You are in a very odd and impolite humor," she told him.

"I owe it to myself," said the young man, firmly. "Of course you don't care about knowing, but I shall never be happy till you do know." "Won't you, really?" asked the young woman. "Never!" said the young man em phatically. "And that would be a dreadful thing to have on our con science. Honest. It's nice of you to lpt me explain and I appreciate your forbearance.
