"Thank you." returned Mary. "I waa going to mother', grave, and thought per bap you would like to accompany me." "Oh. no," antd Klla. In her uaual drawl ing tone, "I don't kuow aa I want to go. I waa there Inat week, and aaw tbe mon ument." , , "What monument?" aaked Mary, and Klla replied: "Why, dblu't you know that Mra.

Eli had aid, there atood by her parent' graeea a large, handaome monument. William Bender waa tbe firm peraoa who rame Into her mind, and a the thought of all that had paaaed between them, and of thl tact proof of hia affection, ahe aeated herself among the tall graaa and Hewer which grew upon her motber'a grare and buret into tear. She had not eat fhere long ere aba waa rouaed by the aound of a footatep. looking up, ahe aaw before her the young gentleman who the year pre vious had viNlted her arbool In Itice Cor ner. Beating bliimclf reapectfully by her aide, be apoke of the three graves, and a.ked If they were her friend who alept there. There waa aomethlug ao kind and affectionate lu bla voice and manner that Mary could not reprcaa her tears, and, .Hatching up her bonuet, which aba had thrown aside, ahe hid her face la it and again wept. ". t For a time Mr. Stuart Buffered her to weep, and then gently removed the ging ham bonnet, and, holding her hand be tween hia, he tried to divert her mind by talking upon other toplca, aaklng her how ahe had been employed during the year, and appearing greatly pleased when told that she had been at Mount lloljoke. Observing at length that her eyea con stantly rested upon the monument, he apoke of that, praising its beauty, and asking If It were her taste. ' v "No," aald ahe. "I never saw It until ' to-day, and did not even know It was here," ' i j , ' ; ; ; ; "Someone wished to surprise you, I dare say,' returned Mr. Stuart "It waa manufactured In Boston, I see. Have you friends there?" Mary replied that ahe had one, a Mr. Bender, to which Mr Htnnrt quickly re joined. "Is It William Bender? I- hare heard of him through our mutual friend. Oeorge Moroland, whom you ' perhaps have seen.". . , 4,, . .., . Mary felt the earnest gaie of tbe large, dark eyes which were fixed upon her face, and coloriug deeply, she replied that they came from England In the same ves sel. 'V" f "A "Indeedl" said Mr.' Stuart 'When I return to the city shall I refresh hia mem ory a little with regard to you?" "I'd rather you would not," anawered Mary. "Our paths in life are very dif ferent; and he, of course, would feel do Interest In me." "Am I to conclude that you, too, feel no Interest in him?" returned Mr. Stuart, and agaia bis large eyea reseted ou Mary's face with a curious expression. But she made no reply, and, soon rising op said It was time for her to go home. Vacation was over, and 1galn In the halls of Mount Holyoke was heard tho tread of many feet, and the sound of youthful voices as oue by one the pupils came back to their accustomed places. For a time Mary was undecided whether to return or not, for much aa she desired an education ahe could not help feeling delicate about receiving It from a stran ger, but Mra. Mason, to whom all her thoughts and feelings were confided, ad vised her to return, and accordingly the first diy of the term found her again at Mount Holyolte whore she was warmly1 welcomed , by her teaqhera and-ompans ion's. Still, it did not seem like tho-olden time, for Ida was not .there;' and Jenny's mprry lnugh was gone, v . .' Patiently and porseverlngly through the year she studied, storing her mind with useful knowledge i and when at last the Annual oxnmlnn Hon eomo. jinl nu ! h; senior class stood higher, or was grad uated with more honor than herself. Mrs; Mason, who was there, listened with all a parent's prido aud fondness to her adopted child, aa she promptly responded to every question. But It was hot Mra. Mason's presence alone which incited Mary to do so well. Among the crowd of spectators, she caught a glimpse of a face which twice 'before ahe had seen once in the school room at Rice Corner and once In the graveyard at Chicopee. Turn which way she would, she felt rath er than saw how intently Mr. Stuart watched her, and when at last the exer cises were over, and she with others arose to receive her diploma, ahe invol untarily glanced in tbe direction whence she knew bo sat. For an Instant their eyea met, and la the expression of bis she read an approval warmer than words could have expresaed. That night Mary sat atone In her room, listening almost nervously to the sound of every footstep, and half-starting up if It cam near her door. But for certain reasons Mr, Stuart did not think proper to call, and while Mary waa confidently expecting him be waa several miles on hi way home. In a day or two Mary returned to Chlo opee, hut did not, like Klla, lay her books aside and consider her education finished. Two or three hours each morning were devoted to atudy, or reading of aoae kind. For several week nothing waa allowed to Interfere with this arrange ment, but at the end of that time th quiet of Mrs, Mason's housst was dis turbed by the unexpected arrival of Aunt Martha and Ida,' who ratna up to Chico pee for th purpose of luductng Mrs. Ma son and Msry to spend the coming winter, la Boston. At first Mrs. Mason hesltst ed, but every objectims which either he r Mary raised waa ao easily put aside thatsha finally consented, saying she would be read to go about tho middle of November. I CUAPffcltXV. ' "Oome this wsy, Mary. I'll show you your chamber. - It'a right here next to mine," said Ida Seidcn, as on the evening of her friend's arrival she led her up to ft handsomely furnished apartment, wblcb for many weeks had borne the title of "Mary's room." "Oh, how plesssnt!" waa Mary'a excla mation, as she surveyed tha room In which everything was arranged with auch perfect taste; Mary, waa too happy to speak, and, dropping Into th easy-chair, ah burst into tesrs. In a moment Ida. too, waa seated in tbe same chair, with her arm around Mary'a neck. Thn, as her own eyes chanced to fall upon some vases, she brought on of them to, Mary, saying; "See, these are for yon a present front oue who bad me present them with his compliment to the little girl who nursed him on board tho Windermere, and who cried because hi called her ugly!" Mary's heart was almost audible in Its beating, aud her cheek took on th hue of the cushions on which she reclined. Re turning tbe vase to the mantelpiece, Ida tame back to her side, and, bending close to her face, whispered: "Cousin Oeorge told nis of you years ago, when he first came here, but I forgot all about it, and when w were at Mount ITolyoke I never suspected that you were the little girl he used to talk ao nyicb about. But a few days before he went away he reminded me of It again, and then I understood why he .was ao much interested in you.- I wonder, you never told me you knew htm, for, of course, you like him. You can't help It." , Mary only heard a part of what Ida aald. "Just before he went away." Was he gone, and ahould she not see htm af ter all? A cloud gathered upon her brow, and Ida, readily divining Its cause, re plied. Tea, George Is gone. Either he or father must go to New Orleans, and ao Ueorge, of course, went Isn't It too bad? I cried and fretted, but he only pulled my ears, and said be ahould think I'd be glad, for he knew we wouldn't want a six-footer domineering over us, and following us everywhere, as he would surely do were he at home." ' ' Mary felt more disappointed than she was willing to acknowledge, and for. a moment she half-wished herself hack tn Chicopee, but soon recovering her eiua Dimity, sba .ventured to ask how long George waa to be gone. f s 5 "Until Anril, I believe," said Ida; "but anyway you are to atay nntil ha comes, for Aunt Martha promised to keep you. I don't know exactly what George said to her about you, but they talked together more than two houra," and she says you are td take music lessons and. drawing lessons, and all that , George Is very fond of music li i..;! j i The next morning between 10 and 11 the doorbell rang, and in a moment Jen ny Lincoln, . whose f ather'a house was Just opposite, came tripping into ho par tor, ' She had lost lit a measure that io tundity of person so offensive to her mother, and It seemed to Mary that there was a thoughtful expression on her face never seen there before, but In all other respects she was the same affectionate, merry-hearted Jenny. "I Just this mlnuto heard you were here, and came over Just as I was," said she. After asking Mary if she wasn't sorry George had gone, and if she ex pected to find Mr. Stuart she aald, "I suppose you know Ella Is here, ' and breaking everybody's heart of course. She went to a concert with us last' even ing, and looked perfectly beautiful. Hen ry says she Is the handsomest girl he ever saw, and ,1 do hope she'll make something of him, but I'm afraid he Is only trifling with her." f ; s ) r, , , If there was a person hi the world whom Mary thoroughly detested It was Henry Lincoln,' and her eyes sparkled and. Cashed so Indignantly that Ida no ticed it and secretly thought that Henry Lincoln would for once find his match. After a time Mary turned to Jenny, say lug, "You haven't told me a word about about William Bender. Is he well?" . Jenny blushed deeply, and, hastily re plying th hs-lVRS-the lRstt!me she "aw him, started up, whispering in Mary'a ear, "Oh, I've got so much to tell you but I must go now." ' " ' y Ida aqrompanied her to the door, and asked why Rose, tod, did not call. In her usual frank, open way Jenny answer ed, "You know why. Rose Is so riueor." Ida understood her, and replied, "Very well; bul tell her that f she doesn't see fit to notice my visitors I certainly shall not be polite to hers." , - This message had the desired effect, for Rose, who waa dally expecting a Miss King from Philadelphia, felt that nothing would mortify her more than to be neg lected by Ida, who waa rather a leader among the young fssbionables. Accord ingly, after a long consultation with her mother, she concluded It best to call up on Mary. In th course of th afternoon, chancing to be near the front window, she aaw Mr. ridden' carriage drive away from his door with Ida and her visitor. "Now Is my time," thought she; and wltboot a word to her mother or Jenny she threw on her bonnet and shawl, and lu her tbln French slippers stepped serous the street and raog Mr. Selden'a doorbell. Of course sho was "so dlssp polntml not to find tbe young ladies at home," and, leaving her card for them, tripped back highly pleased with her own clerern. Meantime Ida and Mary were enjoying their ride about the city, until, coming Suddenly upon an organ grinder aad monkey, tbe aplrlted horses became frightened and rsn, upsetting th car riage and dragging It some distance. For tunately Ida wss only bruised, but Mary received a severe cut upon her head, which, With the fright caused her to fslut A young msa who was passing down the street, and saw the accident Immediately cam to the rescue; and when Mary a wok to consciousness Billy Bender wss supporting her and gently pushing back from her fact the thick braids of her long hair. ' ' ' " ' "Who la she? Who is she?" asked th eager voices, of the group around; but oo one answered until a young gentle man, issuing from one of tho fashions tie saloons, came blustering up, demand ing "what the row waa," Upon seeing Ida, his manner changed instantly, and he ordered th crowd to "stand back," at the ssme time forcing bis way forward until he caught a eight of Mary's fsce, nUewr BiltlTsjd he."' "your "old flame, the pauper. Isn't It?" . It was fortunste for Henry Lincoln that Billy Bender's arms were both in use, otherwise he might have measured bis length upon the sidewalk. As it was, Billy frowned angrily upon him, and lit a fierce whisper bade Jiim beware how he used Miss Howard's1 name. By this time tbe horse were caught another carriage procured, and Mary, still supported by Billy Bender, was carefully lifted Into it ami borne back to Mr. Seidcn a houae. Many of Ida'a friends, hearing of the accident flocked In to aee and to inquire after the young lady who waa injured. Among the first who called was Lizzie Upton from Chicopee. rOn her way homa she stopped at Mrs. Campbell's, where she wss immediately beset by Ella, to know "who the beautiful young lady waa that Henry Lincoln had ao heroically saved from a violent death dragging her out from under th horse heels!' Lizzie looked at her a moment in sur prise, and then replied, "Why, Miss Campbell, is it possible you don't know It was your own sister?" It wss Henry Lincoln himself who had given Ella her information, without how ever, telling tbe lady'a name; and now, when she teamed that 'twaa Mary, she was too much surprised to answer, and Lizzie continued.' "I think you are labor ing under a mistake. It wa not Mr. Lincoln who saved your sister's life, but a young law student, whom you perhaps have seen walking with George More land." Ella replied that ahe never saw Georga Morelabd, as he .left Boston before h came; and then as she did not seem at all anxious to know whether Mary waa much Injured or not, Lizzie soon took ber leave. Long after she was gone Ella sat alono in the parlor, wondering why Hen ry should tell her such a falsehood, and if he really thought Mary beautiful. Poor, simple Ella! She waa fast learning to live on Henry Lincoln's smile, to believe each word that he aald; to watch-nervously for hia coming, and to weep if he stayed away. (To be continued.) MAKING GIRLS HAPPY ON FARMS Mr. Meredith Tell About the School for Farm ira' Wlvee tn Mltlneeota. i What the West la doing lu the way of training girls to live happy Uvea on farms waa very ably shown at Hunt ington hall, Boston, recently by Mrs. Virginia C. Meredith, preceptress of the school of agriculture of Minnesota uni versity. Mrs. Meredith has herself conducted a successful stock farm for many years, and she believes thoroughly ,io the farm life for young people. I V i f . "The farm home," ahe said, "is to my mind the Ideal home, and I am glad to say the thought In our school is always to educate the girl for the life she will have to live. "At first we had only boya In the school, but when these, noticing that their sisters and sweethearts needed to learn Just what they were learn ing, begged us. to tnko girls, 'too, we did so, nd now for four -years we have been training farmers' daugh ters to make happy farm homes. - "Our glrla study, elde by side with the boys the different' breeds of live stock and the. various developments of pin nt life. A farmer's wife needs to know how to tell a shorthorn from a longhorn, and what season Is best for planting com. ."We have been hearing In the past much about 'the man's desire to get away from the farm. The reason for his restlessness lies in the dissatisfac tion of his women folk with farm life. They needed to be taught that It was Interesting to make a farm home. ... "We give our girls special .work adapted to women In the home, such as cookery, which extends through the three years, dairy chemistry, and plant life. Butter-making is not drudgery to the girl who understands the why of It, and sewing Is rapidly ceasing to become a lost art now that girls see thai putteiTiS '7 &tv'-. C-OwpfclnMiHiuie things and not Chinese puzzles. "The girl Is taught, too, about tex tiles, a most Interesting subject from the farmer's standpoint; and she at tends lectures on household art in which suitability is shown to be tbe desideratum of a purchase of furniture. "The application made In our school of mechanical drawing that of design ing model farmhouses will have a great Influence on the coming farm home of Minnesota. When the present generation build houses they will be convenient ones." EVENTS OF THE DAY FROM THE FOUR QUARTERS OF THE WORLD.

RAN OUT OF HER COURSE. aiMrf Became PanJcStrlckta, fcut Were Safety iMML fit John's, N. F., June 28. The Orient Steam Navigation Company's' steamship Lusitania, from Liverpool, June 18, for Montreal, having 300 passengers on board, was wrecked last night off Cape Ballard. . The Lusitania was bound round Cape Race for Montreal with a large cargo and a shipload of passengers. She mistook her course in a dense fog, and went ashore near Renews, 20 miles north of Cape Race, licfore daybreak. The ship ran over a reef, and hangs against a cliff. , The passengers, who are mostly emigrants, were panic stricken. They stampeded and fought for the boats, but were overcome by the officers and crew The rougher ele ments among the passengers used knives. The women and children were first landed, and the men fol lowed. The crew stood by the ship. A heavy sea was running, but at latest advices the Lusitania was hold ing her own. It is thought that she will prove a total wreck. The passengers of tha Lusitania had a terrible experience. The first knowledge they had of the disaster was when, owing to the ship scraping over the rocks, they were hurled from their berths by the shock. A scene of great excitement prevailed. Three hundred people were clamoring to escape, while the crew tried to pacify them and launch the boats. The male passengers in their attempt to seize the boats, trampled the women under foot and fought the crew with knives. Some of the more cool head ed of the passengers assisted the crew in the efforts to get out the boats. The women and ' children, almost nude, were pulled up the cliffs by the coast people. v The unhappy passengers, after shivering for hours on the hilltop, tramped weary miles to reach the houses of the fishermen, where they are now sheltered. Previous to reach ing the cliffs, the passengers passed two hours of terrible anxiety on the wreck. ' As a furious rain storm and heavy sea raged all night, it is feared the Lusitania will be a total wreck. .The last reports received here said the steamer was breaking up, that her forehokU were full of water and that her cargo was being salvaged. There is hope of saving the effects of the passengers, as, where possible. they were stored above decks. , RIOT AT ROCHESTER. Pelksmca and Strikers Fought and Many Wert Injured. Rochester, N. Y., June 28. One thousand striking laborers had a brisk encounter with the police today, in which 11 policemen and 20 rioters were injured. The rioters set out, as several times before, too drive off the laborers working on street improve ments. At Mill and Commercial streets they encountered 50 laborers employed by the Rochester Gas & Electric company in digging a trench, and drove them from the trench. The workers sought refuge in the power house of the company, and the police undertook to disperse the mob. The police reserves were drawn up in a platoon of 50 across the street, and upon orders advanced with drawn clubs upon the mob. Immediately the air was filled with bricks, stones and wood, and shovels and picks in the hands of the strikers were used freely. Amid the melee a shot rang out and the sergeant commanding the platoon ordered the police to fire over the heads of the strikers. This had the desired effect. The strikers scat tered and the police chased them through the streets to the City Hall Park, where they were held awaiting action by the mayor. Police reinforcements were hurried to the scene of the riot, but their ser vices were not required. The injuries sustanied by several of the policemen are of a serious nature. The hurts of the rioters were mostly scalp wounds inflicted by the officers' clubs. A Second Cloudburst - Bluefields, W. Va., June 28. An other destructive storm swept the flood-swept district tonight, and while no loss of life is yet reported from this second visitation, the damage to property has been great.

City Fall of Setdlcrs and Officers Returning Kerne.' Tien Tsin, July 2. The city of Tien Tsin is now more crowded than ever. . Officers of all nation are here en route for their homes, and the hotels are placing cot in every avail able place. Apartments have been prepared at the University of Tien Tsin for Prince Chuan and his suite of 40, who will remain there for three days before leaving for Germany to make formal apology for the murder of Baron von Ketteler. Mr. Denby, who, when the foreign troops arrived, waa appointed by the Chinese Merchants' Company to pro tect its property, says the company, in its claim against the United States government, did not use the word "loot" against the marines, but mere ly held them responsible. The greater part of the company's proper ty consisted of rice, which waa after wards distributed under orders from the British and American generals to assist those in need. Mr. Denby thinks the company's cliara should have been added to the indemnity as legitimate expenditure. Other mer chants say the company never had 300,000 taels' worth of property here. It is pointed out that the company stored three boxes of valuables with the chartered bank before the trouble began and did not withdraw these until October, and that, consequently, it is quite improbable any jewels were left to be looted. Moreover, the place was thoroughly gone through by local looters before the allied forces . arrived. It would be legally impossi ble to hold any portion of the reliev ing force responsible for anything but the rice and coal, which were used as a military necessity, to feed Chinese coolies who were forced to labor and also those who were without means of livelihood. TUNNEL CAVED IN. Narrow Escape of Passengers In aa Expr . 1 Train. ' ""i Baltimore, July 2. The roof of the Union Railroad tunnel in the eastern section of the city, used and con trolled by the Pennsylvania Railroad, caved in shortly before 2 o'clock this morning. It is supposed that a de fect in the arch of the tunnel caused the accident. A narrow escape from death or ser ious injury was experienced by tho passengers and crew of an express 'train which was caught by the falling debris in the tunnel. As far as can be learned, the avalanche of earth and rocks caught the rear express car, which was immediately In front of the passenger cars. The train was not running rapidly and the jar was not . severe. . The , engineer quickly brought his train to a full stop and word was sent from a signal tower to the Union station. A yard engine was sent into the tunnel and the thinly filled passenger coaches were drawn back to Union station without the occupants being aware of the dan ger through which they had passed.
