HOOD BIVERf GLACIER, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1905.

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
"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
"JACK CABKLTON !" SAID EATON AFTER A
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
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
"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.
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
. 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
. "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.
The Dob and Hla Mailer.
Men and women are very much like
clocks. Some are always on time, some
are never on time, some are always in
order, some are never In order. 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
Lew Than Coat.
"But," protested the broker who had
advertised for a confidential clerk,
"yon want too much salary." "I've bad
a great deal of experience in the bro
kerage business," urged the applicant
"But you ask too much for it" "My
dear sir, I assure you I'm offering it to
you for much less than it cost me."
A Faithful Sea-rut.
One night Prince Talleyrand was sud
denly awakened by the firing of a pis
tol, and, seeing his valet walking about
the room, be asked blm what be. was
"There was a mouse In the room,
your highness, and for fear It might
disturb you I shot it"
