Oh, you don't know.' He (lanced at ber a little uneasily In the gloom. Tbey were standing un der the trees, and there was no one near, lie slipped bis linn round ber and kissed ber. "Are you really sorry, darling?" he aald. She laughed again. "Yes, dreadfully. Totrorrow, It'll all be cleared up " "Cleared mr Bbe put ber band on bis arm and drew him further under the trees. "Yes. Come. I'll tell you all about It Who'a tliatr He peered at two flgurea In light dresses Tanislilug In front of him. "Miss Vlnlng and somebody I don't know. They're gone now." She laughed again. "Miss Vlnlngl Oh, It's too lovely!" , He glanced at her suspiciously once more. "Too lovely what's too lovely? I thought Mis Vlnlng was a great friend of yours." "Bo she Is. Don't you think It's rery nice for me to have a friend like Mamie Vlnlng such a rich friend to take me about and be nice to me?" "I suppose so," be said, without en tbnslasin. "She's very rich of course." "Immensely I Money's nothing to her. Bhe'a a dear, too a real dear," she added, affectionately. He did not answer. The subject seemed to embarrass lilra. "At least," she amended, "she is, yon know, ouly I'm getting mixed. But I must tell you to-night, some how." "Whatr She patted his arm softly with ber fingers. "I should have liked to have kept It a secret until the last moment," she sold, "until I bad to give you a wed ding present, you know." He winced under the light touch of ber lingers. "Why are you squirming about like that, Dick? I shall have to give you a wedding present It's quite the proper thing. Bride to bridegroom a for sue broke off with a little triumphant smile. "I'm not sure I can tell you lt'a so delicious to think you don't know." II was silent for a minute. She was really very puullug and distract lngly pretty. Ue bent and kissed ber agala She looked up suddenly. "You do care don't you, Dick?" aha aid. 'You do really care?" "I care more than anything In the world," be said earnestly. After all, there was time to break tt off quietly before." "Yes, I know you do." she said soft ly. "That's why I'm going to tell you. You aee, wa are good friends always, and one of ua was rich, and one of us waa poor, and tbe one that was rich decided to come to England, and take the ons that waa poor with ber." "Yes?" be said, incompreheusively, as she paused. "Well, you know, In books, when there are two girls like that, they play a trick At least, they did in book we were reading Just then." "What trick?" he said, with grow ing uneasiness. "Tbey change places. The rich girl takes the poor girl's place, and " His quick movement startled her. Bbe looked up, but it was too dark to aee his face clearly. "What's the mutter, Dick?" "Nothing," be said, In an odd voice. "Go on." "And I aald, 'Oh, do let us do that,' and aha didn't mind she said It would be rather fun. Bo we did." "Did what?" be said, desperately. "Changed places what a dear old atupld you are! Changed names. I'm Mamie Vlntng." There waa a dead alienee. The man's face wore an Indescribable ex pression if she could have seen It "Do you mind my having such a lot of moneyf she aald. "I know you don't think much of money you've aald so mora than once. Don't you re member what you aald about people who marry for money? Well, you won't marry ma for mine, at any rate." There waa a light step behind. They turned to find the girl who was not Mamie Vlnlng standing beside them. Her friend held out her hand to her. "Oh, Helen, I want to tell you 1 want you to be the first to know." she aald. "I'm engaged to Dick. Will you congratulate us. please?" Helen stood still and looked at them. There was a great pity In her eyes. "No," she said, slowly; "I dou't think I will." Mamie Vlnlng stared. "Why not?" Her friend put an arm around her, and drew ber away from the man, who stood motionless under the shadow of the trees. "Because Mr. Vance proposed to me this afternoon," she snld, "and I was fool enough to to accept hltn. For give me, Mamie I didn't know. You needn't mind It It was the money be wanted not me." "You did that?" she said. "Oh, Dick you did that? You were play Ing with me; and all tbe time you didn't mean anything?" "I loved you," be said, desperately. "And you meant to marry her." Bbe put out her hands with a udden gesture of dismissal, of fare well. "Please go," she said. "It's all you can do please go."

While he is bound In the nature of his otllue to go no further from Rome than Is possible In traversing the Vatican Kardens, he penetrates to the remotest parts of these grounds and spends a great ileal of time In the open air. He Is generally accompanied In his walks by Cardinal Merry del Val, with whom he Is on the most Intimate terms. The Pope recently announced his Intention of procuring an automobile, as with this means of transporta tion It will be possible for him to visit any part of the spacious grounds with out undue exertion. when he had gone.

FEEDER FOR STOCK One of the disagreeable tasks In re lation to the care of horses, cows or other cattle is tbe necessity of arising early and supplying them with feed. This Is especially true with milk deal ers, bakers and many others who are compelled to get up an hour or two be fore serving their route In order to feed their horses. This la also the case on Sundays with all drivers of teams. Automatic time stock feeders are not new to the trades, by any means, but few are as simple as the one shown In the Illustration. This Is so con structed tbot the feed may be auto matically released at a predetermined moment by attachment to an alarm clock and fed Into a trough or manger. A chute, through which the food Is to be passed, is shown here, with a hinged door at right angles to the In ner wall thereof, the door being con nected with an arm which projects through the wall of the chute. This arm Is fastened to a spring held to a pin In the outer wall of the chute. A bracket supports a clock upon the other side of the chute, the clock hav ing an alarm attachment. The key which winds the alarm apparatus Is connected to e spring pressed bolt which Is mounted In the wall of the chute PREPARING (Cincinnati Political Spellbinders in the tor the Campaign."

As the clock runs down the cord withdraws the bolt, and when the proper time Is reached the door Is released and the food fulls down to tbe manger. After the door Is relieved of Its weight the spring will cause It to resume Its normal position. This would also be very useful In large establish ments. , The patentees are John R. Roy and William E. Sankey, of Salem, Mo. Pearl Buttons Destroyed. "American destroys annually 17, 500,000 gross of pearl buttons," said J. F. Robinson of Omaha, Neb., who Is engaged In the manufacture of that article of commerce. "There are In the United States about fifty factories that turn out dully 1,000 gross of but tons at least. I should not be sur prised If the average Is larger than that but I am sure the figure Is tbe Inside. What becomes of them Is an other question. Some people save but tons with the same iseul that a miser saves coins, and so the consumption of 17,500,000 a year must arise from the careless clusses who lose or throw them away when they come off their garments. Tbe Industry lg rapidly growing, and the demand for the prod uct Is such that all the manufacturers are kept busy with their orders. It Is, within the last dozen years that the Industry of making pearl buttons from mussel shells has become prominent among the enterprises of the inland rivers, but at coast cities tbe process is an old one. Tbe Increase In the number of ready-mude garments that are sold Is partly responsible for the Increase In the button Industry. When shirts and other garments are bought ready made there Is little use to save the buttons, but In tbe olden days, when the articles were made at home, It meant something to save the but tons from the old clothes."

An Improved machine for sealing en velopes has been Invented by a man In Topeka, Kan. .The machine, It Is claimed, will seal from 8,000 to 15,000 envelopes an hour.

"Did you aver take a ride over the buffalo clover plains of Texas?" ask ed a writer la tbe New Orleans Times- Democrat "I remember on experi ence that will stay with ma all my life. It waj In Houston. I was young and It waa Washington's birthday. A friend Invited me to rid to his ranch In the country. Wa started in the morning. A light spring breeza waa blowing; red and white roses dangled from the balconies of the bouses aa wa rode through the street After leaving the city wa rode Into the open. There was a sweet smell from the earth, and our horses stretch ed their necks and gave" themselves up to the pleasure of motion. But that waa not the best part The re turn Is what remains particularly In my memory. We passed the day go ing over the ranch and looking at the animals. After eating a dinner of the finest fried chicken I bad ever tasted In my life, and loafing for an hour or two with cigars, wa mounted our horses for the return home. "The moon was out full. Aa wa rode upon the plains, and lost sight of all houses, I felt aa If I were In an enchanted land. On all sides was a vast sea of white moonlight Tbe grasses made the waves. When we walked our horses we could bear In numerable little volcea singing a song of praise. It was a sacrilege to talk. Then when our horses became warm ed up and urged by the additional Impetus that they were returning to the stables, we let them have rein. and went at a swinging gallop over the prairie. I don't know how my friend knew which way to go. Ha waa In the lead, and I followed him blindly. To ma the motion of the horse, the moonlight and the sounds of night, the smell of the earth and the height of the light-filled heavens constituted an exhilaration which I had never felt before nor felt since. The mem ory of the ride will alwaya remain with ma aa something distinct beau tiful and enjoyable." Compiled with tha Law. In Chicago are certain boulevards set apart for tbe use of pleasure ve hicles only, from which all wheeled appliances which appear to be used for toll or profit are strictly excluded. At tha intersection of two such driveways one aunny afternoon stood a dapper little park policeman In a new aprlng uniform. Ha twirled a slender switch idly In his white-gloved banda, and appeared to be making up by aa as sumption of importance all that he lacked In alia. Suddenly, as If he bad bobbed up out of the ground, appeared a gigantic laborer trundling a plebeian wheel barrow. It Was an empty wheelbar row, to be sure, but a wheelbarrow none the less, which had been used many a time In carrying brick and oth er common things. For a moment tha park policeman was stiff with horror at this desecration of tbe boulevard. Then with lordly tread he stepped out and tapped tha workman easily with tha switch, t "Here, now, my man," ha aald. "Nona of that yon know. Only pleas ure vehicles allowed on tha drive. You'll have to 'go down to tha next street with that barrow." The workman hesitated a moment and then grinned broadly. "Pleasure vehicles, eh?" he repeated. "Well, there," and as easily as a oat would pick up a mouse, he picked up the policeman and deposited him in tha barrow, "sit you there, then, my boy, and we'll have 1 pleasure vehicle all our own." Judge's Pupil Proved Too Apt. A prominent Judge and a young law yer were taking a holiday Jaunt to gether, and having a very Jolly time of It One day the younger man aald to hla companion: "Judge, I wish you would tell me what it is to which you attribute your very unusual success in tbe law." "Well," I don't mind doing so, but It must be on one condition, and that is, that you agree to pay the rest of my traveling expenses on this trip." To an ambitious young fellow of considerable Inherited fortune that waa not too much to do, and so he agreed. "It Is simply this," said the Judge; "I always make It my rule to deny everything and Insist upon proof." His friend acknowledged the remark with a simple "thank you," and noth ing further wag said about the matter. Tha Judge did not limit himself In hla wines and other expenses, and waa running up a pretty bill. When their stay at that hotel was ended, and they went to the desk for their accounts, the Judge received his and passed it along to the younger man with a twin kle In bis eye. "Why, what does this mean?" ha asked. "Mean!" anld the Judge; "it simply meana that you agreed to pay all my expenses on this trip, and here'a my bill." "Judge," said tbe other, "I deny ev erything and Insist upon proof." Phil adelphia Ledger. IW ra on Too Heavily. "This won't go for ouly one stamp," said the village postmaster to old Un cle 'Klah, as tbe latter handed him a bulky and much-sealed missive. "Whuf for? What's de maddah wld dat?" "Too heavy." replied tha postmaster, balancing it on his hand. "Umph! I tole dat boy so when he was a-wrltin' of It.
