THE LAST STRAW.
One flight, two flights, three, four, and she paused breathless. She was a model In many ways. In the first place, she was very good, and In the second, curiously enough, she was very pretty. Then, too, she posed for people who painted or sculped. She was standing now before a door upon which was nailed a card which no one could read because the hall was too dark. Had you carried it down to the street (West Fourteenth street, to be definite) you would have seen "Henry Smudge" printed across the face, and 18 Hue Boissonnade crossed out in the lower right-hand corner. She had knocked once gently, and now, after a few minutes' pause, she knocked again. Then -she tried the latch and the door fell open. It was a little room with one small skylight and it was littered with pic tures, paints, easels, chairs a smajl deal table and a cot which somebody had tried to make look like a divan. It was not very clean; in fact, it was dirty, and everything seemed more or less broken. The breakage was not that of everyday wear and tear and non-repair. It bore the impress of de liberate intent; in fact, a farmer from cyclone Kansas would have felt thor oughly at home here. So the girl's eyes wandered over the wreck and finally rested upon a young man's back. He was seated In the only chair that was in a condition to hold any one, and his face was burled In his arms folded across the deal table. "Oh, Harry!" she gasped. What have you done?" "Can't you see?" he said. "Yee but why? Oh, dear, what Is the matter?" Henry Smudge stood up. Ills ragged 6llppers, his worn velvet jacket, his tousled hair, his brown Vandyke Leard all 'bespoke the artist. "Bess," he said, slowly, "I'm a fail urea rank failure." Now Miss Bessie Trllbycroft had pos ed for several years, and she was a bright girl and had a very good Idea of art. It was fair to say that for some time she had suspected what Henry Smudge now so frankly announced, lie had never imagined, though, tha.. he suspected it. Honesty, however, and surprise were too much for her, and all she said still breathless was: "How how did you find it out?" Then she could have bitten her tongue off, but refrained. "There," he said, "look at that," and he handed her a printed paper. A varnishing-day notice at the Academy of Design?" she said, slowiy. I KNOW YOU'RE RIGHT," HE SAID "Accepted? Does it mean your picture has been accepted?" He nodded his head and sank back Into the chair. As for her she sat flown upon the floor and sitting there, amid the dust and dirt and wreckage, regarded him dully. "Oh, Harry, I'm so sorry," she burst out at last. "Five years wasted; five years one bere, three In Paris, and now another year since I've come home. I didn't mind the struggle, Bess, nor the hard hip, nor the disappointments. I knew t didn't paint very well that is, not as well as I wanted to, you understand. When old Bondstock bought that Nor mandy pasture with 'Henri Smudge, Paris, 1896 down in the corner, I felt well, discouraged till you sort of braced me up. Now, this settles it, I luppose. I'm no good, and the sooner realize it the better." "Don't take it so hard, Harry," she said, gently. "It's only once, you know, md it may It may never happen tgaln." But even then her voice betrayed her and when he glanced quickly up into ber eyes he knew she did not believe what she said that this might even be the beginning of a series of regular ac teptances. "Besides," she went on, "it probab ly won't be on the line. It may even be 'skied,' and that won't be so very bad." Ah! the kindly meant flattery of women! Bessie Trllbycroft knew that picture all too well. From the moment the began to pose for the girl with the open letter In her hand the girl whose pensive expression gave point to the apt title: "What Shall the Answer Be?" from that moment she felt in stinctively that Henry Smudge could not escape "the line." And now the expected had happened, and she was trying to soften Us bitterness by all the ilmple wiles of her honest little heart. But the blow was too straight and too hard for a man even bo self-satisfied a man as Henry Smud&a, to mis take its Import. He smiled sadly at Bessie's lame prevarications. "What's the use of talking that way, Bess?" he said, sadly. "Iteally, I'm not quite a fool, and there are some things that I can see. I had hoped that some day that some day you might don't jrou know; I had a sort of idea that maybe you cared for me a little bit. and we could have married and lived on Washington tq " He stopped, for she was sobbing con vulsively. "Why, oh why! did you send It to them?" she moaned. "Because, Bess," he said, taking one of her limp hand3, "because I felt that I must know the worst that I must take my chances along with the rest. Besides, Bess, I I wanted if I should turn out not to be an artist I wante to know whether you cared enough for me for just me, myself" "Harry!" Bhe said reproachfully, and looked up at him through her tears sadly. "Harry, did you ever doubt me? You know my ideal was always to mar ry a real artist and live In Washington square, but, dear, let me tell you" and she nestled close to him "I always knew you weren't an artist and yet I loved you." "And you didn't tell me?" he said, with a mingled thrill and pang. "I knew you'd find out both things," she whispered. "I've seen this academy bow coming for nearly a year, Harry ever since I've known you." "Bess, I may yet gain fame and we may even manage to avoid starvation. Why can't I do posters and maintain that it Isn't good art to draw and color well? I might even be an impression ist" "I've set out to be truthful, Harry,' she said, "and I'm going to keep it up. It Isn't that you draw so badly. Your values and your tone and your atmos phere and your foreshortening and your dietance are all right enough only you haven't got anything to say " "Oh, you mean my pictures don't tell any story," sniffed Smudge, scornfully. "That's always the cry of people who don't understand art " "No, Harry," she went on. (It will be seen that Miss Trilbycroft was a very superior young person.) "No Harry, motive and plot are very dif ferent things, and you have never worked with any other motive than just to paint a picture. Art is merely a form of expression of something you want to say, and some people say it with a pen and some with a brush and fome with a chisel and Eome talk and paint and sculpt and don't say a single thing" Ills head was again burled in his hands burled under the weight of her inexorable logic. "I know you're right," he said at last. "I was only arguing. I am use less. This acceptance settles It. I do not doubt I could make a good living at the work, but Bess, it would be a degradation of art; and then, you wouldn't love me" "No, Harry. Frankly I could not love a man so conscienceless as to paint on after such a rebuff as you have received; but we need not starve. You know my sister works at Schoen feld & Bippelmeyer's. The clerk in charge of her counter has just left, and" An hour later a happy couple were walking arm in arm up Sixth avenue. "Yes, they took me at once for $7.99 a week, and I am to arrange the win dow display. Bess, I feel like an hon est man again and it's all through you." "No, Harry," said she, blushing an approximate red lake, "it is you who deserve the credit. I always felt you were brave and strong enough to give up your wrong-doing when you had come to realize it, and oh! I'm so glad you did realize it!" "I couldn't very well fall to, under the circumstances," said he, smiling gayly. "Lots of people don't," said Bessie, and they turned off into a side street and fissed from view.

One hears much of the injurious trades dippers' lead-poisoning In. the potteries, phossy-jaw in the match fac toriesbut comparatively few eeem to be aware that there are occupations that are actually beneficial, even medi cinally so, to the health of those en gaged in them. The men. who lay the asphalt in the streets, for instance, sel dom have a day's Illness and thoee em ployed in electric light works and in places where large quantities of elec tricity are generated enjoy quite an ex traordinary amount of vitality. A visit to the gasworks, too, Is quite frequently prescribed by doctors for cheat ail ments. The workers In the salt mines also enjoy an absolute Immunity from rheumatism. Perhaps the healthiest occupation Is that In the petroleum works. The men employed In these never suffer from sore throats, diph theria, quinsy or kidney ailments. The" marvelous curative effects of the pe troleum fumes Is such that It is now quite a common thing for sufferers from throat affections to visit the pe troleum works, much as people used to drink the waters at Bath. A celebrated and wealthy operatic tenor who had de veloped a throat weakness has for sev eral months past been working as aa ordinary employe, but gratis, In one of the petroleum refining rooms, deriving from the inhaling of the fumes a cure that scores of physicians and several ocean voyages failed In establishing. Simple Method for Asphyxia. A simple method for resuscitation from asphyxia is reported by Dr. W. Freuderthal. He Introduces the Index finger Into the mouth and moves it to and fro over the epiglottis, causing an effort to swallow, which Is Immediately followed by a return of respiration. This has proven successful when the older methods have failed, while It makes severe traction upon the tongue unnecessary. WAR NOTES, United States troops now serving In Cuba are to be brought to the United States for the purpose of giving1 the men a change of climate and an oppor tunity to recuperate. All the regi ments will not be brought home at once, but arrangements will bo made so that a battalion of the dilferent or ganizations may bo absent at one time. When they have remained what is deemed a sullicient period in this country, they will return und relieve their comrades in the regiments, this practice being1 kept up until the entire body has enjoyed a rest in this country. Gen. Brooke is to be recalled to Washington for consultation with the secretary of war. There is a possibil ity of his remaining' in this country and his duties in Cuba being1 assumed by Gen. Wood. The war department ollicials profess the utmost confidence in the ability of Gen. Brooke to admin ister the uffairs of the island and hay that his recall to Washington Is not significant of a change in the adminis trative affairs of the Cuban metropolis. While a detachment of the U. S. troops were reeonnoitering on the 20th they encountered 100 of the enemy in trenched ot Tibuan, Negros mountains, and drove them from their position with the loss of two lieutenants killed and three privates slightly wounded. Nineteen dead insurgents were counted in .the trenches when the enemy was routed, and six rifles and a quantity of reserve ammunition were captured. It is oflicially announced that Col. Smith, with 10 companies of the 12th regiment and two guns of Battery Kof the 1st artillery, under Lieut. Kemley, attacked 2,500 strongly entrenched in surgents at the southern approach to Angeles on the lGth, and drove them back after a sharp fight. The Ameri can troops had two men killed and 12 wounded. The insurgent loss was estimated at 200 men. Owing to the determination of Secre tary lioot to rush the new troops to the Philippines, the original schedule prepared in the quartermaster's de partment has been entirely disar ranged, and it is the department's in tention to have not only the first 10 regiments afloat by the last of October, but also those to be raised under the last order. The transport Siam has sailed for Manila with 330 mules, which will be used for military service in the Philip pines. The vessel will stop at Hono lulu for several days and the mules will be given a run ashore as a rest from their steamer voyage. While a reeonnoitering party of the 24th infantry, under Capt. Crane, was crossing the Markjuina river on a raft on the 21st, the hawser broke. The current, very swift at that point caused the raft to capsize, drowning nine en listed men. Eight hundred insurgents attacked Angeles on the 17th, but the 12th regi ment drove them into the mountains. Three ditched locomotives were captur rd. None of the American troops were injured. The insurgent loss is not known. The United States transport Tartar, from San Francisco July 21, with Gen. Jos. Wheeler, and his daughter, troops of the lUth infantry and more than 81, 300,000 in coin, has arrived at Manila. It is announced that Secretary of War Koot is closely following the ad vice furnished by Gen. Miles; more troops will be sent to the Philippines and a reserve force maintained. The insurgents recently cut the cable in Laguna bay, leading to Ca lamba on the south shore of the lake, but the break has been repaired. 25 Killed In a Mine Kxplonlon. By an explosion on the 18th in the iciest colliery, in Glamorganshire, Wales, 25 persons were killed and CO others were injured. Ihe explosion occurred during the night shift, when there was only 50 men in the mine. There were many heroic acts in the effort to save survivors from the effects of the after-damp, but so far only five have been rescued alive. Pathetic scenes were witnessed as the bodies were brought to the surface, men, women and children crying and eager ly waiting for tidings of the entombed miners. Who Is to lllarae? The verdict rendered bv the jury in the kerosene oil explosion at Detroit is as follows: "Mrs. August Knitter and Mrs. Catherine Czaja came to their death by burns from the explosion of Impure kerosene offered for sale by the Standard Oil Co., and due to negligence of the state oil inspectors or said com pany and its employes." THE NEWS CONDENSED It is Admiral Dewey's intention to go from Leghorn to France for a brief visit It is oflicially announced that fully 2,000 deaths have resulted from the hurricane and floods at Porto Kico. Eight hundred tons of supplies for the Porto Rlcan sufferers were placed on board the transport Panther at Philadelphia on the 21st. According to a dispatch the town of lied Bay, on the island of Andros, 20 miles southwest of Nassau, was nwept away in a recent tropical hurricane, and about 300 lives lost. The counties of Jefferson, St. Law rence and Lewis, situated in the north ern part of New York, has been swept by fierce forest fires that has destroyed thousands of dollars worth of valuable timber land. Porto Means say that if the U. S. government would grant them free trade and thus assist them in disposing of their stored sugars, tobacco, etc., that it would immediately furnish them permanent relief. Two hundred people were poisoned at Oregon, 111., on the 17th, by lemon ado which they drank at a picnic. As yet no fatalities have been reported. Weekly Crop Bulletin. According to the weekly report of the Michigan weather bulletin the temperature for the state during the past week was CS degrees, or one de gree above normal; the average total precipitation 0.44 of an inch, or 0.00 of an inch below normal; and the sun shine averaged 02 per cent of the pos sible amount. Generally the weather has been dry and hot. The lack of moisture has been felt the most In the southern counties, where pastures are rapidly drying up and corn has rolled considerably. In these counties also the ground has been too dry for fall plowing. Corn, beans and late pota toes are, however, in generally good condition and have made fair progress during the past seven days. The pres ent condition of corn indicates that it will be safe from frost about Sept. 10 in the southern counties, and about Sept. 15 in the central and northern counties. Beans are beginning to ripen. The oat harvest is very near completion in most counties, and the bulk of the crop has been well secured. Sugar beets continue to grow finely and ure In promising condition. The Trl-State Hand Convention. The Tri-State Band association, in cluding Michigan, Ohio and Indiana, held their annual convention in De troit on Aug. 10th and 17th. Nearly 75 bands from the above states and Ontario made music galore while in the city. It was a big event for Detroit, and in addition to the music makers the printers from all over the U. S. were there, the florists were there, and many visitors from far and near were there. The bands gave concerts at the various parks about the city on the afternoon and evening of the first day, and on the second day occurred tho parade, in which all the bands unitedly played familiar airs, making noise enough to be heard for miles. After the parade the balance of the day was spent at Belle Isle park, where thou sands listened to a fine musical pro gram. Not Such Poor Land After All. Although tho experimental station of th3 Agricultural eollege, which was located in Crawford county near Gray ling, was abandoned because of the alleged unfruitfulness of the soil, the farmers who have settled on the so called pine barrens in that section have no complaint to make. Farmers living within a radius of four miles of the abandoned experimental station have this year purchased 18 mowers, one reaper, eight binders and ll farm wagons. This machinery was bought for use and not for fun. Havana Mob Sought a Wife-Heater. A small riot occurred in Havana on the 17th, growing out of an attempt to lynch one Villegas, a former lieuten ant of police, who had ill-treated his wife in the most atrocious manner. He had been in Vivac, the Tombs of Havana, for several days and on the above date wife died, and shortly after sundown a crowd of 1,000 people met on the Plaza and after listening to firey addresses; began to march on Vivac A detachment of artillery met the mob and the latter promptly dis persed.

' DIAMOND CUT DIAMOND. A I'asuc Man Lout Through Owa Trick. There 13 one young man In this ctty who will not be eo fresh in the future when It comes to betting with the fair sex. lie was filled with an apprecia tion of his own Judgment, and one day last week announced to a young wom an that Yale was sure to win the foot ball game against Harvard. It hap pened that the young woman was a Harvard enthusiast, and she promptly called the turn, offering to wager that Harvard would prove the victor. A box of candy was suggested for a wager, but this was scorned by the young man who persisted that if he was to bet he desired It to be for stakes of some con sequence, and proposed that she wager 100 choice cigars against a new dress. There are reasons for believing that he thought she would not be equal to the emergency, but he was sadly disap pointed, for she accepted the wager. Of course she won, hut the funny part of the story remains to be told. The young man visited one of the dry goods stores Monday and secured samples of dress goods from which the fair win ner could select. The prices ranged from 75 cents to $1.23 a yard and know ing the disposition to select that which cost the most, he determined upon a very cute scheme, or, rather, a scheme which looked very cute at the time. He carefully attached price tags to the samples, marking the lower priced goods $1.23 a yard and the $1.23 gam pies 73 cents. Chuckling at his sharp ness he presented the materials for se lection. A little later he went around to hear the decision. "I like that piece of cloth," said the young woman, pick ing up one of the pieces marked from 73 cents up, "but this one is such a bargain that I think I shall take it. And besides," she added, "it will let you down easier." What he said was not Intended for her ears, but he will purchase the $1.25 goods, marked down by himself to 73 cents, but still sold by the merchant at the original price. Brooklyn (Mass.) Enterprise. SPIRITUALISM. Renounced by Astronomer Flam run rlon (JlvfS Ills Itt asons. Paris Correspondence New York World: Camille Flammarion, in an interview with your correspondent, said: "I have not repudiated spiritu alism lightly. A serious man naturally always dislikes to admit that he has been mistaken in life. As id well known, I have been one of the stoutest apostles of spiritualism. I always be lieved I was having regular Intercourse with the other world. Galileo's spirit never failed to come to me when sum moned. His revelations about the ap pearance and manners of the inhabi tants of other planets were incorporat ed In my writings, always with the ut most confidence till modern instru ments discovered five satellites of Jupi ter and nine of Saturn, whereas what I believed was the spirit of Galileo al ways affirmed to be that Jupiter had four moons and Saturn eight. You must understand, however, that I do not renounce all belief In spiritual manifestations, the existence of which has been proved beyond a doubt. I have simply reached the conclusion that such manifestations cannot be at trlbuted to the spirits of dead people. I see additional proof that the phenom ena so far as ascribed to the dead. really emanates from psychic force pro jected by the living. In fact the so called revelations are always confined to things known, suspected or desired by somebody present." WHITE WAIST COATS IN COURT Irish Judges ltegarri Thcra as Fnpro fesnlonal and Taboo Them. An extraordinary incident took place recently in nisi prlus court No. 1 In Dublh. While the lord chief Justice Sir Peter O'Brien was engaged in the hearing of an action against the Dub lin corporation his lordship said he observed that one of the queen's coun sel engaged in the case appeared In a white waistcoat, which was not a pro fessional costume. The MacDermot, Q. C, who was Irish attorney general under the last liberal government and who was leading counsel for the corpo ration, thereupon endeavored to cover the offending garment with his silk gown. In reply to the lord chief Jus tlce, Mr. Ronan, Q. C, said that last week In England a Judge had stated that he would not hear any counsel who did not appear in bar costume. The lord chief Justice: "And I will not hear any barrister who comes Into this court wearing anything that Is unpro fessional." The MacDermot eald he had not Intended to do anything that was unprofessional. He had been in the library and had hurried down, not having time to change his costume. Mr. O'Shaughnessy, Q. C, here handed a pin to the MacDermot, with which, amid much laughter, he fastened hi silk gown In front so as to hide the ob trusive waistcoat from the sensitive eyet of his lordship. Alcohol for Automobiles. The majority of motor cars are now driven by petroleum, but a French en gineer recommends the use of alcohol Instead of It, and motors are being altered so as to consume it. There is no fear of explosion with alcohol, and It Is said to be less costly than petro leum. We might, therefore, para phrase the national poet and say: "Put It In your cars to save your legs."
