On this par ticular occasion we found rounds putting the finishing touches upon a woman's bead. She was a somewhat startling creature, !gray eyed and thin lipped, and she stared straight out of the canvas with the expression of one who would say, "You know why I am here." "That's all right," said Earlo Dean, ;to whom I communicated my idea of (the head, "but why is she here? What is she going to say or do? What Is iu her mind ? I couldn't guess." Divergent views upon this subject were expressed by the company, and we agreed upon only one point that rounds bad painted a fascinating mys tery. "I was driven to it!" growled Pounds. "The rent is two months overdue." 83 88 w S3 88 88 88 83 88 88 displaced It, so that, however anxious she might be to screen her bedcham ber from casual observation, the tacks were n superfluity. "Still it was no business of mine, and I should never have given It a sec- ond tliougl had I not chanced to hear two of the girls who took care of the rooms discussing the blue curtain as they stood In the ball outside her door. One of the girls was the regular mnld and the other a newcomer, in that part of the house at least. " 'You mustn't go Into the small room,' said the former. 'She never lets anybody go in there.' ' 'Why nut?' asked the other. 'Ain't It never swept out?' " 'It ain't been swept out by me,' was the answer, 'and I'm telling you to keep away from it. Put your hand on that curtain und Bhe'll take your And don't you go peeking, "I would like to produce a similar ef fect In a story," said Dean, "and large-! heaA "rf' ly for the same reason." neither. 1 "There is only one way for a man to "'Ain't that funny?' said the new portray a woman in fiction," said Lang-' girl, Willi her eyes wide open.

Her eyes were heavy, and always a sealed book to a man." J the lines of the face all drooped as if "I can tell you a storv." said Pounds. .' with weariness. W e were well enough was not wtjrtli my while to know, not worth the time of the question nnd the answer. Yet as she said this she stood with her back to the blue curtain and her hand raised lu n gesture, that warn ed me. "Then I got angry, like an Idiot, nnd said some of the most foolish things that ever passed my lips. We were not upon terms that permitted me to Insist, and yet I talked as If she ought not to have any secrets from inc. Of course I made a joke of It part of tun time, and sometimes I hinted ut Har ris" theory of the mystery and some times at my own. She seemed not to understand very clearly, but nt last she made out that I was In earnest. And when that conviction came upon ber she laughed, nnd, pulling the tacks out of one side of the curtain, she said: " 'do in if you want to.' "And in I went. Well, what do you suppose I found? Just what I might have expected and the last tiling that I actually would have Imagined. "The room was absolutely empty! There was nothing at all lu it. She simply didn't hove enough furniture for both rooms, and she bud so litted up tho studio and left the other room bare. "The instinct of concealment, which Is the basis of the feminine character, made her wish to hide the deficiency, but she had no very strong feeling about it. She kept the maids out of tho place because she knew that they would tell, and that's all there Is to It, except that the disclosure spoiled tho only romance I ever had. "And in conclusion, my friends, let me warn you that is ail you'll ever find beneath this ancient delusion of wom an's incomprehensibility.

She's coming right at you, with staring gloomily at bis picture, "that ,will throw a great deal of light upon the mystery of woman." rounds is the coldest misogynist that ever grew out of the ground as the result of some" one's having planted a piece of Ice. He had a smooth, po lite way of relegating women to a place In the scheme of nature a little lower than the domestic animals, which has led some of us to suspect a romance In his life. It could not be possible that he was going to tell ua about it, yet there was something quite j me hastily. acquainted by that time for me to speak of her altered looks, and I did so sympathetically. " 'I can't sleep, she said. 'I lay on that couch wide awake all night, as I have done many nights before." '"Why didn't you go to bed?" I ask ed, with deep simplicity. "She looked surprised. " 'That is my bed," she said. 'I sleep there.' " 'I had supposed that the other room' I begau, but she. interrupted unusual In his manner as he sat glow ering at the picture, which all of us knew must be a portrait. "A good many years ago," said be, "when I had more money and less sense and was In every way better off than I am today, I knew a woman who was just like every other woman, I suppose, but she seemed different to me. She was a slender, nervous, active creature, and she had gray eyes und a frm, strong, earnest face. "She lived in the Bancroft, where 1 had my studio then, and let me re mark in passing that It Is the best studio building ever put up in this country. The little suits there are com fortable beyond belief, and the light ing has been managed wonderfully well. But the rents" He threw up Lis hands with a gesture of despair. "The woman," continued Pounds, "couldn't have afforded to live there, but she happened to be the niece of the owner, and he gave her a fine studio for nothing. She seemed to be a true Bohemian, who appreciated the delights of living like a bachelor. I say 'seemed' because lu those days I bothered my head a good deal trying to understand her, and the failure that I made was a notable failure, even for one so gifted as I am with the faculty of not being right about anything. "My suit was directly under hers and exactly similar in design. The door from the hall opened Into the larger room. On the right was what was Intended as the sleeping apart ment, and on the left a bathroom. a I CAST SLEEP, SHE SAID. with tiled floor and a porcelain tub big wiough to swim In. The baths are the especial glory of the Bancroft. "The woman had her studio fur nished rather prettily with plenty of pictures and hangings, a big canopied couch in a corner, an antique writing table In another corner and the ma terials of our trade In the middle of the floor. Across the doorway, between the two rooms, hung a very heavy dark blue curtain, which was fastened in several places on the sides with thumb tacks. I noticed that the first' time I was permitted to call, for it seemed so unnecessary. The curtain was so heavy that no draft could bare 'Xo, no, she said, with evident em barrassment; 'the other room is not furnished as a bedroom.' " 'I should think you'd find It more convenient' I "'Don't let us talk of It," she said. 'What do you think of my roses?' "She never painted anything but flowers; at least I had never seen her nt work upon anything else. They were always correct enough In outline and coloring, aud yet in effect they were the flowers that grow on wall pa per and not those of nature. "I said that they were very good, for I hadn't thu heart to speak otherwise. That was the sort of work by which she lived, and I did not have much faith iu her ever doing anything bet ter. Yet after I had returned to my own quarters that day an idea enme to me that warmed my heart. I believed that 1 had guessed what lay behind the curtain something better than tho roses, something more important than a living, her real work in the world "A quite different Idea was suggest ed to me that evening by a fellow named Harris, a landscape artist with no particular excuse for existence, who was also a tenant In the Bancroft at that time. Ho was acquainted with the woman and was, I fancy, a little sentimental In his thought of her. "He told me that a promising young artist, whose name I can't remember. had died In the Bancroft about two years before. To the best of Harris" knowledge the fellow had occupied the rooms then held by the woman. " 'I believe,' said he, 'that she was In love with him, and that she makes that little room a sort of shrine. It may be that the furnishings which he had are still there and that she does not wish any one but herself to see tbem.' "Here was an explanation of senti went. My own had been one of am bition. I believed that the woman did her trivial work where all might see and earned her living iu the light of day, but that in the secret place be hind the eurjaiu she toiled for the Ideal which to her was sacred. There was that In my heart which made the fancy grievous. I would have given much to have her share the secret of her strivings with me. It would have made my life mean something if I ' could have helped her through the I i. , t i . . . . . i . . I ruiiu iuuu lijul ivuus upwuiu lu hiss stars, but site did not so honor me. "Many a day after that I sat in her studio, with my eyes on the blue cur tain, but never a hint did she give to me of what lay behind it. Sometimes by night I seemed to hear her walking In that room, but I could ouly guess What pleasure or pain she hid there. "It was a long time before I had the indelicacy to ask her a direct question, yet I did it at last A man lu love will not tolerate such a mystery. There is a chance for another opera upon the theme of 'Lohengrin' with the secret of Elsa's keeping and the fatal curiosi ty In the breast of ber husband. "The woman put me off with the Elea that the matter was trivial. It "THE ROOM WAS ABSOLUTELY EMPTr." her mouth and eyes open; And she all solutely doesn't mean anything. I know because I painted her. She's a typical woman, a thoroughly" But we six fellows wi re all men of heart and sentiment. Some of us loved one woman apiece, and some of us loved several, but we all loved, and we couldn't stand Pounds' philosophy an other minute. So we arose and fell up on Pounds and threw htm out.

Enemln of Terrapin.. The crow Is the evil genius of the turtle just as of the diamond back and other terrapins. When tho warm days of spring come and the female terra pins aud turtles leave their beds iu the marsh, the crow goes on guard, know ing that a season of feasting is at hand. Both terrapins and turtles seek the warm, sandy uplands near the shore to deposit their eggs. A bole Is dug several Inches deep and from 20 to 30 oblong white eggs are de posited and then the nest Is filled or covered with sand. Having neatly piled the suud over the egS the turtle raises herself just as high as is jios- sible, then comes down with a heavy thud on the sand. This is continued until the sand is quite bard, when the eggs are left for the sun to hatch. In the meantime the crow has been on guard, nnd by means of his sharp bill and strong claws the work of breaking Into the treasure house of the unsuspecting turtle Is quickly accom plished aud the feast is soon over. The crow is considered by many to be the greatest enemy the diamond back has. It Is an easily established fact that the crow destroys thousands of the eegs of nil kinds of terrapius, not making an exception of the diamond back. iltiniorc Suu. tuple For the Week IIi'kIiiiiIdk J illy T Continent by Key. S. II. Doyle. Tnnc Ki'liilion nnd patriotism.-om. xiii, 1-7. Piety and patriotism should go hand lu hand. Our religion should be patri otic. Our patriotism should be reli gious, lteligion includes the perform ance of every duty that devolves upon us in every relation of life. The rela tion to the state, to the government, Is a very important relation of life. The Christian has no nioro right to Ignore or to neglect his duty to the state thnn he has to treat iu a similar way his duty to the church or to the home. Christ tuught both by precept aud ex. ample that civil duties should be per formed. He paid taxes to the Koman government and declared that men should "render unto C'H'sar the tilings that ure Ca'sar's" os well as unto "(Jod the thlugs that are God's." Paul In writing to the Romans ex horts that "every soul be subject to the powers that be." Keference here is to the civil powers. Iu a time of tyranny and oppression the apostle still urges the importance of obedience and re spect to the civil government. This should be the attitude of Christians to- This re can never be an occasion when "the powers that be" should be resisted. If they go beyond their rights and privileges, they should be resisted. All powers dele gated to man are limited. Children should obey parcels as parents, but not as sovereigns; wives are to obey their husbands as husbands, but not as tyrants and oppressors ; citizens are to respect and to ooey rulers us rulers. but when they go beyond their legitl mate bounds us rulers and attempt to exercise powers not delegated to rulers there is no law ol Hod that demands that they should 1' obeyed. Paul's reasons for this attitude to ward human governments are many nnd comprehensive: 1. "For there Is no imwer but of God The towers that be are ordained ol God. Whosoerer, therefore, resisteth the power reslsteth the ordinance of God." 2. Human governments are for a good purpose aud hefice must k sustained. "For rulers are not a torror to good works, but to the evil." "He Is the minister of God for good to thee." 3. This atti tude toward humgn government Is a conscientious duty. "Ye must needs be subject not ouly for wrath, but also for conscience sake. I-or these causes Christians are no: to refuse to pay "tribute to whom tribute is due, cus tom to whom custom, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor." In what better way can we commem orate our Independence day than by dedicating ourselves more fully to the love and service of our country. It needs the love and service of every Christian. Great problems are before us. The ship of state Is sailing through troublous seas. Let us give our best thought und effort to its welfare. Be ing Christians, let us recognize the fact that It necessarily follows that we should be good citizens. THE PRAYFR MEETING.

He may talk intelligently aud appear sane In every respect, but undoubtedly a tinge of madness is lurking within his brain. Exchange. Soul Wreck.. The saddest wrecks In this world are soul wrecks. Many who set out joy ously on the voyage of life, with brightest hopes and prospects of at taining a career of usefulness, happi ness and honor, are wrecked amid the temptations nnd snares that beset them and never reach the goal or ha ven of their hopes. Some may attain what is called success In a worldly sense-that is. they may nttalu wealth or distinction or some other object of ambition, but it is often through ne farious devices and nt the sacrifice of honesty and honor. Success attained by such means Is commou, but those who have at'.ained it often awaken to the niomeiit'-;s fact that they have paid a fearful price for it nud have wrecked their souls. Lutheran Observer. "Render to all their dues." Government i.s not merely a social conipuct. To be sure, the pilgrim fa thers iu the cabin of the Mayflower did sign a compact before they lauded on the shores of the new world. They made it boeuuse they were driven by lorce of circumstances to settle In a part of the country outside the limits set iu their charter, and some unruly spirits were threatening on this ac count to refuse to obey officers elected under that document. So they bound themselves together as a "body politic for the better ordering of their affairs." But even then they did not claim or believe that they hud the right to make any rules but such as were just and right. The very first sentence of the "compact" recognizes that all Just gov ernment rests on the will and author ity of God. "In ye name of God. amen," is the way they began that first state paper of the coming civiliza tion. They also called themselves "the loyull subjects of our dreud Hover aigne Lord King James." These were the men and women who hud, after heavy losses of property, Imprisonment and persecution of many kinds, succeeded in leaving their na tive England for Holland nnd, nfter 12 years of life among a foreign peo ple, now crossed a tempestuous sea with an avowed purpose religious and patriotic beyond nil parallel lu their own or any previous age. Their In tention was expressed in the same I wrltlug. "Having undertakeu for the glory of God und the advancement of the Christian faith and honour of our King and country u voyage to plant the first colony iu the northern partu of Virginia." On such foundations us these rests the republic. Not conquest nor search for treasure led this pilgrim band across wild seas to the wilderness of savuge men, but desire to found church and state on the love and fear of God. On the anniversary of the national birth we should give careful throught to the different conceptions which con trolled the formation of our iDstitu tions from those which have prevailed in all other nations. Back of the Dec laration of Independence made in 177C Is a long history of struggle and strik ing root from 162U. The ruling spirit from the first has been the sentiment of the men of Plymouth rather than that of those who settled Slassachu setts Bay Colony, lrglnla, Canada or Florida. No wonder the nation has grown and is making a new race of men us well as a new type of civilization. Our danger lies in losing sight of the foun dation pi-iiioiplcR on which the fathers builded. Kcllginu and patriotism must ever go hand in hand, or both perish. No socialism of whatever stripe, no anarchism or nihilism, can safely be in corporated into our system. Liberty of man must ever be bused on loyalty to God. No compact of men, however oath bound, will hold when God Is Ig nored. Equal rights cannot be ob tained among men who deny God's rights. The republic is safe only as men recognize the kingdom of God nnd become "God's freemen whom the truth makes free." Oor Kelfrhbnr. A man must not choose his neighbor; be must take the neighbor that God sends him. lu him, whoever lie Is, lies hidden or reve::led a beautiful brother. "Thy neighbor'" is just the man who is next to you nt the moment. This love of our neighbor is the only door out of the dungeon of self. George MacDon-aid. Quirt t'.efnlncNS.

United Pres byterian. Where TVe Meet Jean.. In various places and on many oc casions does Jesus pledge us to meet Him in this life at the cross, in the sacrument, in the crises of joy and sor row, and now once again He appoints us a meeting place. It Is the valley of the shadow, where, In the quietness and seclusion as In a lover's glare, He will expect us one day. Is there any spot on earth so common or so wild that it baa not beea transformed by love? Are there any places in our thought bo beautiful as those where we kept tryst with those that were dearer than life? So Jesus put a fair face on death, so that it becometh but Bis dark dream as he returneth to re ceive us come. Ian Maclareu (Dr. John Watson).
