An Idyl of the Okobogee.
THERE' were '.three'1 decks to the
Lulu Jones and as swelling1 a bow
as ever a vessel owned. A good part
of the crew's duty was to push this
bow oft impertinent peninsulas and to
protect it against drifting logs. Tor
the Okobogee writhes in and out
among the swamp lands, and the
heavy masses of Spanish moss clinging
to cypress and live oak obstruct the
view, so that it is quite impossible for
vcn the most watchful of wheelmen
to tell what he may run into next.
This lends an enchantment to the
taunted river which even those who
know it best never cease to feel.
No one ever knew it better than
Capt. Bicker Jones and his faithful
crew. The captain was white nnd tri
umphantly conscious of the fact; his
crew was black and was not fcorry;
and though a great gulf was supposed
to yawn between the captain and his
men, as a matter of fact they were
bound together heart and soul, and, If
occasion had required, would have died
for a common cause. Hut-no such oc
casion arose, and there is no intention
of dwelling unduly on the subject of
death. For while there is no denying
that the swamps were somber, and
that the pale hangings of moss sug
gested some castle of old, yet with a
captain that swore so merrily and a
crew that sang so eternally as the cap
tain nnd the crew of the Lulu Jones,
even Lethe would have Bccmcd jovial.
The 6ongs of the crew were original
(as, Indeed, was the captain's profan
ity), and they were the swamp's pro
test against its own brooding silence
and solemnity. They were born of the
place nnd came from the unreflective
hearts of these half barbaric men. So
If into the wild chanting there crept
now and then a minor note heavy with
heartbreak it was no marvel. And if,
as the boat crept cautiously down the
black river, picking its way by the
glow from the blazing pine knot on
its upper deck, the voices of the men
rose to a wail, was it strange? Were
they not right to endeavor to propiti
ate the night, that formidable thing?
Ethan Hartlctt had such thoughts as
these as he sat on the deck and lis
tened to the curious folk songs and

let the weird architecture of the
swamp drift pass him for he could
not disassociate those broken columns
and fallen arches, those shafts and
buttresses made by the trees and the
moss, from the idea of a ruined city
of men long dead. Janet Long sat be
side him, ns usual. He and Janet Long
hnd always been sitting Mile hy side,
It seemed to him. They had done no
at school and In church ns children.
They had done so at college. It was
Intended that they should do so
through life. His. mother and hers
were together even then, playing a
slow game of eueher In the cabin be
low, safe from malaria and damp.
Mrs. Long had been out of health, ami
a Florida journey hnd been ndvtacd.
Mrs. Ilartlctt had decided to accom
pany her. Janet went as a matter of
course, and Kthan was finally jer
suaded into going, too.
"It seems like an ancient vision,
does it not? Like something one has
seen ten thousand years ago and re
turned to, sadly?" nsked Ethan.
"Hark!" warned Janet. "The men
are singing again. It is a lament this
time."
They listened to a plaintive melo
dy, rising with fitful modulations, and
expressing the grief of a lover for his
lost love.
"The black men are the only Im
provisator! our country can boast,"
Ethan remarked. The girl wrapped
her long mantle closo about her and
sat listening. Suddenly she arose.
"It was much too weird, Ethan. I
confess I find the whole place uncan
ny and depressing. I shall be glad
when we get back to civilization. I'm
afraid I was not made for a wanderer.
Good night."
He arose and walked with her to
the cabin door. "Good; night," said he.
"I must stay among the ruins a little
longer. Perhaps. I shall remember
what it that I did and said when
I dwelt among them ten thouand
years ago."
As he returned to the deck he saw
a little form near the flaming pine
knot. He knew It well.
"Mim Jones," said he, nrtdresning
this small person. "Do you never tire
of the river?"
"C.ood evenln', sah. No, thnnk yo I
can't ay I do. It's like ma back doah
to me, you moy say, snh, I've lived on
thh rhuh all my life, yo knsiv."
"Yes, so your father, the enptaln,
irvss tcllJug me. You were born here,
and you have traveled It almost levery
day of your lire." J
"Ah sometimes tell fathah I iknovf
every ole blacksnake on th )vhol
si i turn. As foh th' butzahds, they ah
ma chickens, yo may say." I She
laughed musically and tossed thf hood
of her long gray cloak back fom a
little, dark face. "Ah play gaoies all
by myself when Ah stand oat hcah
nights, sah. I play that I used to live
in the ruined castles ycahs and yeahs
ago, an' that I understood enchant
ment, and could be anything- or any
body that I pleased. They look like
ruined castles, don't yo think, sah?'
She pointed to the roj'stlc structures
fashioned by trees and moss.
"Indeed, I was playing the same sort
of a game myself only a few minutes
ago," cried Ethan. "How strange that
we should have been thinking the
same thoughts."
"Yes, sah." Her voice was like sad
music; her manner compacted of gen
tle boldness and a sort of proud dim
dence. Ethan found her enchanting,
and he remained with her till the
songs of the crew ceased.
"Th' boys ah all goln to sleep, Ah
think, sah. Ah qui' be say in good
night."
"Good night, Miss Jones. To-morrow
I fear our journey ends. I would
willingly go up and down this stream
Indefinitely, but the ladles fomplaln
of monotony. This making house
boat of the Lulu Jones and Vollowing
her up and down her route is not to
their liking."
"Ah'm sorry, Mistnh Hahtlett."
"You cannot possibly be ns sorry as
I, Miss Jones." He spoke with ear
nestness. "Oh, Ah don't know, Mistnh Baht
lett. Perhaps Ah can." She flung a
look nt him which bewildered him, and
then fled down the ladder.
And the next day he shook her dark
little hand in farewell and started for
tho north. Once back in lloston, he
expected to forget her. His profes
sion, wns beginning to make demands
upon him; his social obligations were
many; and it was time that he was
beginning to think of his duty to Miss
Long. Hut this duty was now ob
scured. It seemed as if duty, or some
thing much more alluring, continual
ly drew him to the moss-draped
swamps by the Okobogee; nor could
he enjoy the electric lights of his his
toric city for dreaming of the glow of
a pine knot on a dark river.
So one day, to his own astonishment,
he quitted the city, though he had
some business nnd many engagements
of pleasure, and made fast and furi
ously for the lazy stream, where the
blncksnakes lolled undisturbed, the
lazy turtles watched the river with ancient-seeming
eyes nnd the buzzards
wheeled and wheeled, ever exjiectant.
lie had to wait three days before the
Lulu Jones tied up nt the wharf, but
when once Its nose was made fast he
was soon on board. He sought out
the captain and went straight to the
point.
"Capt. Jones, I love jour daughter.
I tried to think I didn't, but I do. I
went north expecting to forget her,
but I can do absolutely nothing else
but remember. Do you think she
would marry me, nnd, If she would,
should I have your consent?"
The old captain looked him over
with an appraising eye.
"Ah don't know about her loving
yo, sah, but Ah do know for cehtain
no one gets Lulu that doesn't take the
boat."
"I don't know what you mean, sir."
"Ah mean AVve got nothin' but th'
gahl an' th' boat, and they go to
gethah. Lulu undehstands It. We've
talked It ovah. Whoevnh takes Lulu
has got to leahn to run this heah boat,
sah, up an' down the Okobogee. That's
a fuct."
"Hut you arc running it yourself,
Capt. Jones."
"So I be now. Hut I won't fo' long.
Ma days ah almos' done, Ah reckon.
Ah feel maself gettin' stiff an' un
handy. An' Ah want to see th' boat
an' th' gahl in safe hands."
"Hut 1 have my profession, captain,
and my home nnd friends. You
couldn't expect me to give them nil up
and come down here to run n a
steamboat up and down the river, cap
tain!" He looked nbout with ill-concenled
amusement nt the old craft.
"No. No, sah. Ah don't expec' any.
thin' of th' kin'. Oh, no! Ah was jus
snyin' what Ah'd expect of whoevnh
got Lulu." And ho walked softly
away, leaving Ethan staring at a fat
turtle on a slimy log.
So the next train took Ethan north
again, nnd once more he essayed work
nnd pleasure, and proper conversations
with Janet, and all tle familiar
round. And then, actually against his
will, he was back again amid the warm
nnd lazy airs of the Okobogee.
"You see, Capt. Jones, I nm back.
It's no use. I'll be a miserable man up
there in Hoston. I've come down to
sec if I enn learn navigation on the
Okobogee!" He couldn't help roaring
with laughter nt the absurdity of the
Idea. The captain laughed, too.
"Lulu's sewin' up fo'wnhd, tnh, un

Stray Stories.
DIPLOMATIC STATIONERY.
An I'nninnl Storr of Hret llnrte's
Sbotve How It la Misused
Abroad.
The use of the oflicial envelopes of
the United States by both French and
German spies is an old dodge nnd a great
many are stolen from the smaller con
sulates in Germany, where the folk in
charge are rather careless about their
stationery.
Some inkling of this leaked out years
ago, and the tiling was talked about In
diplomatic and newspaper circles as a
good joke.
Diet llarte was then In the consular
service in England nnd naturally he
heard the yarn. It struck him as good
literary material, and he wrote a short
story based upon it which was published
in one of the London Christmas annuals
I think the Graphic but I am not
quite sure, in either '94 or '93.
This story, writes a newspaper man,
wns quite different from Mr. Harte's
usual vein, and was very clever and
amusing.
It purported to be the narrative of the
American consul nt a fortified city in
interior Germany, and opened with the
appearance nt the local garrison of a
very raw recruit, who speedily became
the butt of his comrades.
This poor fellow, who was the soul of
good-natured idiocy, used to come to the
consulate to write letters 1o his "broth
er in America," nnd was allowed to help
himself to the oftice stationery. Later
on he disappeared, nnd was supposed
to have been drow ned in the river when
bathing.
Two years afterward the consul was
in Paris, nnd while seated in front of a
boulevard cafe was accosted by a smart
young French captain in full uniform.
The face of the soldier wns strangely
familiar, nnd suddenly a light broke In
upon the consul. The smart captain
was none other than the stupid recruit
who had a dear brother in far-away
America.
He was a French spy and a match
less mimic, and the consul forgot his
chagrin over the misused stationery in
his admiration for the man's pluck nnd
aud :; city.
The reader is given plainly to under
stand that the letters written nt the
consulate never went to America, but
were addressed to a secret agent in
Paris and passed safely through the
mails, guarded by the olliclnl Insignia of
Uncle Sam.
That tale was printed four or five
years ago nnd is a tolerobly striking
confirmation of what I hftfe said in ref
erence to the use of oui envelopes by
spies on both sides. Sun Francisco
Chronicle.
A I-onit-Xcckrrt Itnce.
Among the pictures by American
artists now being exhibited at the Art
institute is the portrait of a young wom
an, the length of whose neck might
cause the swan to retire In confusion.
A well-known artist and critic pausing
before this picture remarked that no
where but in America dc we find such
extended necks. Is this true, nnd, if
true, what does it signify? The short
neck has always been accepted osnn In
dication of apopleetieal tendencies, but
the long neck has a deeper significance.
It symbolizes the continued upward
reaching of the American people. As
an Indication of aspiration some Ameri
cans may be proud of their long necks.

THE BUSTLING WOMAN.
be la liven Worse Than That Other
Intolerable Kulaance, the
Hustling- Man.
If the busiest men and women were
the greatest bustlers, plenary absolu
tion might be granted them, but ns a
matter of fact bustlers are not the peo
ple who get through an enormous
amount of work, and live at a high pres
sure; when bustlers are busy it is gen
erally cither about other people's busi
ness, or else about self Imposed, highly
unnecessary work. The bustling man
is bad enough. We all know him, but
we know also the limitations of his
bustle; he begins early in the morning;
his shaving water and his boots cause
as much fuss and coin motion-ns If he
were going to India or Australia, in
stead of to the city, or, If he lives in
the country, to a meet In the next par
ish. Everyone knows there will be no
peace in the house until he is out of
it, and everyone resigns himself to his
fate, and breathes n sigh of relief when
the door closes on the bustler, and In
wardly hopes that he won't return be
fore evening, when the moment he sets
foot in the house another domestic tor
nado arises and lasts until he has dined
well, nnd Is enjoying his pipe, which,
glory to the tobacco, generally has a
calming effect.
Hut the bustling woman! No sopor
ific influences can be brought to bear
on her; she does not smoke, she has
not time, we almost wish she did, for
she is 10,000 times worse than the bust
ling man. Her bustle is boundless; It
is perpetual; it is the only thing about
her that has no limitations; there l no
escape from It; it begins at six o'clock
in the morning, summer nnd winter, at
which hour she commences operations
by ringing up the servants and disturb
ing everybody else, nnd it goes on the
livelong day until sleep closes her weary
eyelids at night. Household Word.

RAMPART WHIRLPOOL.
Thol la the Stirring? Name of a Klon

A Woman.
Mrs. Clara E. Wright, formerly of
San Francisco, Is the only woman ed
itor and publisher in the Klondike re
gion. Her paper, the Knmpart City
Whirlpool, was established last Jan
uary as a. monthly publication of II
pages. It has already doubled in size,
and has a bigger circulation at on
dollar per copy than the entire popu
lation of the town, so many papers
are sent home by the miners.
Mrs. Wright doesn't get her fingers
black mussing 'round with Inky tj'pe;
no, Indeed! She builds her paper with
two very feminine tools, the type
writer and the sewing machine, with
the sole help of her ten-year-old
daughter Doris.
For some years Mrs. Wright, who Is
a widow, had supported her little girl
and herself by stenographic work In
San Francisco. With her sewing ma
chine she made at home all the gar
ments of both.

growing up to need some day nn edu
cation, and mother love would gladly
put upon her beautiful clothing, would
lavish toil to save little Doris sueh a
life of hardships as her mother's.
So in June last year, without her
daughter, Mrs. Wright went to Daw
son, and thence pushed on to Rampart
City. At first she was a gold seeker
like the rest, but met little success.
It was in January, when mining was
stopped by the cold, that she conceived
the Idea of issuing a paper. There
was no white paper in town, so the
first numbers of the Whirlpool were
typewritten on reddish brown wrap
ping paper nnd stitched together on
the sewing machine. Now fill those
early difficulties are passed. The pa
er is printed on durable manila, nnd
little Doris is there to help work off
the Increased edition.
Mrs. Wright intends to stick by
Rampart City until she has made her
pile. Of course she has some mining
