0 0 HOOD BIVERf GLACIER, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1905. Georgiana's Lenten Duties By RUBY DOUGLAS CopjrTlght, 1904, by T. O. MoClare Eatou'g well marked, brpwet rwere orinvu closely together -in a frown. The letter he haj jus finished reading obviounly did not please him." He re turned the delicately scented mlsslvt to Its envelope and leaned back In his chnlr. " "Hang the new minister!" he com mented mentally. "Hang Lent, toor be added aloud. " 'Faithfully yours, Georglana," ' h repeated. "And she signs, herself that way because the new minister always uses that form, does she? 'Isn't It fas cinating?' she asks In her Inevitable postscript. No, I cannot agree with Georglana. It has no fascination to me, Inasmuch as she has always signed herself, 'Lovingly, Georgle.' Eaton began to pace the room, and as he thought, over Georglana's letter he grew more" disturbed In mind. It was all about Lent and sewing bees Rnd flower guilds and parish aid soci eties and the new minister. The pas tor said purple was the proper Lenten color, and she had a new gown of that shade In which she looked "perfectly stunning." Aside from purple being ' the penitential color, the new minister adored It, of course, after his college colors, orange and black. lie was a ( I'rlnceton man. "A Trlnceton cad, probably!" thought Earou as he continued to make a cir cuit of bis room every half minute. "Girls are silly over the cloth and brass buttons. One Is as bad as the oilier." All the prejudices Eaton ever had against ministers and girls and humanity In general came trooping In to his ruffled thoughts. lie and Georgiana, although they were not definitely engaged, had more or less of an understanding as to'thelr future, and since ho had been in Bos ton Georglana's letters had been a continual source of comfort to him. And now, because it was Lent, she said because of the new minister, Eaton believed she would have to de prive herself of the pleasure of writing to him so ofteu. She would save the stamp pennies for her contribution box. The new minister was so en thusiastic about having a large Easter offering, and she was going to help I V ' l 1 Mijijf "JACK CABKLTON !" SAID EATON AFTER A MINUTE. him. It was only right that one should deny oneself the greatest pleasures one had in life during Lent. "It must be a great pleasure," mused Eaton sarcastically. One of the first things he did after receiving Georglana's letter was to send her a book of stamps, with the request that she continue her letters to him and not convert the stamps Into money - for her her contribution box. Eaton wanted to use some Im polite adjectives before writing con tribution box, but, In deference to Georglana, he refrained. The stamps failed lu their purpose, for Georgiana did not write often, and her letters were brief and devoted to a recital of her Lenten duties. Once she condescended to l.ecome personal and tell him how lovely she looked in that royal -purple gown and to express a wish that he might see her In it Eaton echoed a portion of her wish oiHy. He longed to see Georgiana, but the dress could remain out . of his vision, always, if fate so willed it. The second week before Easter Georglana said that she would not be able to write at all during holy week, as there was so much to do. There was a litany service every day; there were Good Friday preparations and the three hour service; she was helping the minister with his confirmation class nnd with his Easter sermons, which was a great undertaking for so young a man. "However," she went on to say, "we will expect you, as we have planned, for Easter." The minister would dine with them too, nnd she did want Eaton to meet bim. He was so helpful. "She Is crazy clear crazy on the nliject," thought poor Eaton when he had finished this letter. Queer lit tle hopeless feelings entered his heart and pulled at the strings which here tofore had been so fret from knots and tangles. Would he go and see Georgiana once more or would be re main lu Boston and let her religious fever lead her Into the sea of matri mony with the new minister? Holy Saturday found him on his way to Kw Tort anff Georgians. It Was late when he reached the Carelton home that night, and, to his surprise, he was told that Miss Georglana was In the study. "With the new minister,"' he thought, as he waited for her. His heart dropped deeper and deeper into the despair than bad been drawing it down for weeks. Could she not save one evening for blin when she had not seen him for months? All si;ii!iTij; and radiant and. If Eaton tould only have detected It, with a wicked little twinkle in her eyes, Georgiana appeared In the doorway. "Gordon V she cried and be.ld 0?t w.;r. i .i t. mm mm Win II 'KkyFs both her hands. Eaton took them in bis own, but he was formal In his man ner. " . . "Georginua," was all be said. ''We're Just rehearsing the sermon," she said wickedly, "dome on In." And she dragged him unwillingly from tne room. . This w as more than he bad expected, feut Georglana left him no alternative but to follow her. She even held on to bis band. Was she going to enter th presence ttf the new .minister In this fashion?., - V,. , ,. "He's so anxious to see yott,' Gor don," said Georglana as they crossed the hall. Eaton wished he had sot come. ' - - Georglana opened the study door. "Jack," aba (aid to the young man un der the green lamp, "Gordon's come." And then she stood In the middle of the floor and watched the two men grasp bands. . , ' ' "Jack Carelton," said Eaton after a minute. "What the-that is-Georgl-ana, why didn't you tell me?" Georglana laughed and sat down in the big leather chair under the light "I wanted to get some fun out of Lent when Jack made mo work ao bard to help him In bis new parish. And this was such fun! Tour letters oh, I did laugh so!" . "Ten," added Carelton, "Georglana's a trump of a sister for a rising young curate." He was not ministerial In his manner of talking to his sister. "Well, I say, Carelton, suppose you go now and study up on the marriage service," said Eaton hintfully. And when Carelton looked back as be left the study he decided to take Eaton's advice. . Th Skipper's Ceaimt, ' A burly, ' thick headed skipper bad been given the command of a little steam- collier. Going up with great pride on to the bridge of bis new ship, the first thing that caught bis eye was the engine room telegraph. "What's that for?" be demanded. "Why, that goes down to the engine room," was the reply. "You see all the orders on lt-'Full speed, 'Half,' 'Slow,' "Stop. Tou just have to move the handle." The old man was charmed. "If Aa put the handle to 'Full,' will she gang fuD speed?" "Why, certainly." "An'IfAa put the handle to 'Stop,' will she stop ganging?" "Certainly." The old man was still more charmed. Finally, after thinking some time, he heaved a great sigh of pleasure. "Why, that" s fine, man! That's clever! That does away with all them saucy Imps o' engineers!" The Dram. . The history of the drum goes back to the childhood of the world. The Greeks ascribe Its invention to Bac chus. The Egyptians bad It at least I.COO years before Christ Plwrro found drums in South American tem ples. The snakes of Ireland, we an told, fled from the island before the drumbeats of St. Patrick. 'Our Purl tan ancestors used the drum as a church bell. When Sir Edmund Andros ordered the drums to "strike up" to drown the voice of protesting colonists, the lights in the Hartford council cham ber went out and the. charter of Con necticut disappeared In the darkness to the Safer shade of the Charter oak.

And, while you may be able to tell some thing of a family by Its timepiece, you can tell more by the nature of the dog that greets you at the gate. A dog grows up after the fashion of Its mas ter or its mistress; a kind gentleman will not have an ugly brute on bis place. Exchange. Lew Than Coat.
