One ilay when tho stac anived at Big Flats a very handsome, well-dressed, athlctie-looldiif,' young man alight ed and took the trail for Shady Canor.. Turning the corner of a huge granite column, nut of whose perpendicular split centre. j;nnv a stunted pine, he stopped short and laughed outritrht at the kittenish antics of a small uirl playing alone by the trail. The girl stopped her play and stood before him with hands down and clasped, looking straight into his face, nut boldly nor yet bashfully, but with a sort of won derment of expression. She was a very small creatine, and as to age might have been anvwhere from '2 to Id. Her hair, which was a perfect yellow, was cut close to her head. The young man started slightly when lie met the full gaze of the strange, yellow eyes. "Cat i-yes" was his first thought: a repelling fasci-ni tiou crept over him as the impression deepened in his mind that there was an indescribable feline expression all over the child. So swift do one's thoughts lake shape, beforo'he could bring his lips to form a question the ridiculous idea had come and gone, that should he turn away from the moveless stare of those curious yellow eyes the small creature would spring upon his shoulders, a ferociously wild cat. ".My little girl can you tell me how far it is to Shady Canon r" She bobbed her head over her shoulder, thus indicating both dis tance and direction. "See it?" lie flushed slightly at the nearness to the town, or may be at the implica tion conveyed in the tone and gesture. "N'obodv ever said that to me since he died."' "Said what?" "My little girl." "What is your name?" "It's Cat-Eyes since he died." The creepy sensation again came ov er young man when the child utter ed the first thought which had come to him about her eyes. He con quered the feeling and asked her very kindly, "How long has it been since he died? "It has been 1(H) years. 1 think. "Anything in that. " pudding to the valise which he carried, "that'd get out?" Assured that there was not, she continued in her ijuiet, quaint way: "Then I'll carry it up to the house for you, 'cause you called me what he used to. " He let her take it and followed her up the trail just to see how the adven ture would end. To him anything that promised u new sensation would sure ly be followed. He was only L'l, but he had been born rich, artistically, in tellectually, physiologically and finan cially, and had been adventurously prodigal with all these gifts. A few steps below the trail, one of some boyB wtio were picUing gum from a burned log said to his companions, purposely loud enough that the girl might hear, "liy Jehosephat, it's Cat Kyes a-towing a greenhorn up to Mrs. Squeers'. " She put down the valise and turned upon them in a fury of rage and shame, but they had vanished in a chorus of laughter. The girl could not have told why she was ashamed, but ashamed she was. Cat-Eyes belonged to Shady Canon, but not a child in the village would play with her. They said they were afraid of her cat eyes, and that sparks would fly from her yellow hair. One boy declared that he had onlv given her hair the least touch, and that she had turned into an angry yellow cat and scratched his face. Some of the peo ple said her mother had been frigh tened terribly by a cat. Three years before, on a chill Sun day afternoon, she had been left crouching on her father's grave. Each kind-hearted woman thought, of course, that some other kind-hearted woman would care for her. And so it happened that Mrs. Squeers, returning from a walk in the woods, took the sobbing child to her saloon and gambling resort. The child's fa ther had squandered many a gold At the Hiuii'j time Allinson peremptor ily told Mrs. Sqeers to send Cat-Eyes out of the place and never have her in the saloon again. Frightened and stu pid with amazement, she was sent to her loom and never again recited in the saloon. Hut from that hour she was u scll'-abnegated slave to Allinson, and was afraid that liarty would take revenge; upon him. Unit crisp, cold morning in the late fall she stood among the fading flow ers and yellow leaves in the garden, with nn ache of intuition in her heart. Sho had changed much in a few months no longer a child, not yet a woman. Presently Allinson called to her, as he had done on other morn ings. A dull red, painful to see, dark ened her face. He carried tho gripsack which he had brought to the place. Silently, entirely subdued, she walked beside him down the canon, and though he tried his best she stood among the failing flowers. .lust beyond the great bowlder where he first met her he said "good by." He made a pretty speech and gave "her good advice. She only gazed and gaz ed at him with a helpless, vacant stare, which so irritated him that he dropped her hand and walked away. "Stupid creatures," he said to him self, "I've wasted a summer trying to put u soul into this odd creature." While she in the dead leaves whero he had left her standing dropped to the earth, shaking from head to foot with tearless sobs. She bit the dry leaves and scratched her face with her hands, and there in the afternoon of the dav Mrs. Squeers found her. i . t ,i linU..n i..rt ti, ntfi.. ;..i i'.,ti.',-..o ! so close were standing in the mountain path. He had just returned to San Francisco, and stood shaking hands with an ac quaintance, a young man much vuting- er in years than he, and knowlege of years. '.How long have vou been in the city?" "Landed on California soil at 10 this morning. " . "Straight from Paris?" "In a roundabout way. straight from Paris." "Then you have not seen the Ti gress. ' ' "Xor heard of it: what is it?" "It! Ha ha! ha! It's at Ma guire's and it has set the town crazy i in three nights. " j "A woman, 1 see," said Vernon, indifferently. "A woman you do not see." said the; other, or yon would not speak so indifferently. Oh, Vernon, such a woman! A glittering, dazzling creat ure, whose acting and face are indes cribable. You have never seen any thing like her, 1 know." "Hard hit are you, my boy: very hard hit. Vou forget that I have dined on the theatre beauty of Paris, Ixmdon and Madrid, and hail my vir tue chilled in the cold of northern loveliness and scorched by the fires of (ieorgian eyes. Do you think Fll be captivated by an amateur in your lirimiti;- metropolis at the (Joldcn idate?" j "Vou may laugh at me, but you i will not laugh after vou have seen ! her." j "Then by all the saints take me to her at once. " They were comfortably seated. A storm of applause announced the ap peal uncc of the debutaute. "A glit tering, dazzling creature, incompara ble and indescribable." He caught himself repeating his friend's words, and from that moment his eyes never left her while she was in sight of them. "Tigress! Tigress! Why the "Don't know. It is said she does not, receive callers, except those on busi ness. " "Well, I'll find out," and he did. The next, morning at an early hour he hamlet! his curd to the Chin aman who opened the door, with the request to lake it to the lady of the, house. "No sabe, " said the Chinaman. Vernon pointed to the card, then to his hand, then into the home. "No sabe". "Let; me brighten your understand ing, " and he handed him a piece of money. Heap no nunc, hut there was a sly twinkle in the Chinaman's eye. .lust then a young woman camn to the floor anil invited him in. With his pulses on fire he waited to see if she would come. Then then- was a sliding of folding-doors, the heavy curtains were pushed apart and the Tigress, in all her royal, graceful loveliness, stepped into the room. Vernon rose eagerly to meet her. She held his card in one hand and extended the other, ami prosaically said: "Mr Al linson, I'm pleased to meet you." This cold, beautiful woman, whose name he did not know, had evidently no prior knowledge, of him. "Cat-Eyes, it is not fair." These were not the words he intended to shv. It was what he called her in Slinky Canon. He said it now with so much of the plaintive ant! petulant in his tone that Cat-Eyes laughed. Anil such a laugh! Clear as the ring of silvery bell. A musical ripple of merriment. Then she shook hands with him again. The ice was sudden ly melted. Thev sat down facing each other, their knees nearly touching. they. Ihey lived over ! that summer in Shady Canon. "And ! do you remember," he saitl, "that ! 1 made you a wreath of manzanita ber I l ies, and crowned vou queen, Vnu, mv j little Cat Eyes Miss ? What i's your name? Strange that I should j have known you so long, and not know j your real name. " i "An evidence that you have been j very, very much interested in me." t "Kemcmber 1 staved three mouths. but, ho thought her all the more beau tiful. "What, a fool: oh, what a fool not to know seven years ago that you loved me !" he saitl. "And what a fool not to know 'it now!" There was bitterness -nav, almost contempt - in her voice, but the words were all satisfviiiL'. He caught her to his breast, ami kissed her eyelids and forehead, cold hands and pale cheeks, amber hair, and her wrists, and her sleeves, and her tre mulous mouth. Her head sank on his shoulder, her beautiful arms clasned around him, ami a torrent of tears burst from her eyes, the first she had ever shed. I San Francisco Call. HERE AM) HEKEAFTKH.

Allison's stay at Shadv Canon lengthened into months. He took Cat Eyes on long bramiiles up steep heights where they had to use their hands to neip mem u. vjh these long rambles their talks were grave and quiet, and on many suh-je'-ts. She learned much from him. and was an eager though an unobtru sive listener. One evening she was called into the saloon to recite. She had a marvelous voice, anil it amazed the crowd.

And such eyes, what were they? They were mirrors of topaz reflecting the gaslight. And her hair, what a glorious crown it Was! Ho thought it rich amber in the shadows anil spun smuhine when the lights fell upon !. And yet il was tlie impression rather than the ap pearance that made him repeat again and again. "Tigress, my beautiful Tigress," so quick are we to lay claim to what leases us. In the middle of the play he took the diamond pin from his cravat, and the i boutonniere from his coat, thrust the ! pin through the flowers, and threw the improvised bouquet at her feet. She saw the gleam of light coming, and the hand which had thrown it, ami Hashed her wonderful eyes on his face. He shivered in the fascination of them. She picked up the bouton niere. pinned it carelessly to her breast, then made an interpolation in the part she was playing, ami sang: Oh, do vou remember the well-beaten i rail That led from the camp to the spring? And the pot pies we hail from the squir'l and quail. And tho evenings when we used to sing? The shady old camp is all gone to de cay. The ham bone has diopped from the pin. The roof and the door have both rot ted away And the chimney is all tumbled in. The glorious voice arose untram melled. The warm rich notes filled and thrilled the place. The words of the old song sung at so many camp fires seemed to float and linger over the heads of the people. A large part of the audience were Californians of I the old days, and the familiar tune with its memories made many a griz zled face wet with tears. Vernon did not applaud. She had sung at him and for him. This was the girl lie had thought stupid in the mountain path, shaded with pines, seven years ugo. "Cat-Eyes" had grown to the subtle grace and charm of the tigress. He hail been so blind, so blind. Who had made this change? A fierce jealousy took possession of him. What man had taken up this beautiful creature, Allinson forgetting that he had dropped her with a few words of cold advice. "Take me to the stage to see her," he said to his companion. "Take vou to the moon." he replied. "Why not to the stage?" Whv not to the moon? One is as ac cessible as the other to you." Where does she liver asked Allin son. Who?" asked his friend.

There was something in I the laughter of her shining topaz eves that stopped him. "There are forty-nine other cages with the same placard on them all ahead of yours. " "l'.ut I love you," lie said. "Same announcement that the other forty nine make, " as she glanced at him. "Hut you loved me a little bit, did you not?" I "Maybe, but that was seven years ago. They say one changes utterly in seven years. And if Cat-Eyes loved you it has exhaled and evaporated, and been shorn from her head, and clipped from her nails, and rubbed off on tow els. It is the Tigress now." " You are cruel : you know 1 loved you so, seven years ago." "You must have loved me. How you must have loved me then ! The yellow topaz eyes were laughing, the mouth was still smiling, but the words were cutting, and ended in a moan like that of a wounded beast. All the days of her joyless childhood were crowded into it. The nails of her hand, which rested on the arm of the sofa, dug into the velvet till her wrist was raised from the cushion anil the knuckles of her fingers looked white because of the tenseness of the skin. He got up and sat down beside and took her hands. I "1 love you terribly now. My j is an avalanche broken from evcrv j Intuit. I love you. Miss Tigress. " I "Perhaps Mrs. Tigress.

These are not idle words but the application of the scientific, modern, practi cal waj of obtaining the full benefit of the combustion of the coal. I will set one of these Furnaces in competition with anv other make of Furn aces in the world and if it will not produce more heat with less fuel I will set one in your house and charge you nothing for it. .
