Annul colorful.. She waa pretty, and
in atilte of her love for Bolliu aha could
uot help a throb of pleasure In the
thought of being admired by city eyea.
The next week aha went to the city
with her Aunt llella I'reacott to atay a
mouth or two. Hut the "mouth or two"
awelled to six, and there seemed no more

The truth waa that, aside from the
fact that Mra. Bella I'reacott a gay and
somewhat attractive widow, and young
still had taken a derided fancy for her
lovely little uiere, she found that ah
added so much to the charm of her ele
gantly appointed drawing room tliut ahe
did not know how to spare her from it.
One morning aa An not finished read.
Ing a letter from Hnllin, Auut Bulla aaid
to Iter with a lnught
"ltolllu won't be coming here to awe
you, I hone."
Annot blttahed without replying. In
deed, In this very letter Bolliu had an
nounced that he waa coming, and An
nul did not know for the life of bet
whether ahe waa glad or aurry,
Mra. Preacott looked seriously annoyed
when aba understood the elate of the
case. Annot aaw her displeasure, and
her own uneasiness waa increeaed,
Both might, however, have apared any
anxiety cout'eruing Rollln Dratmk
He had brown hands and a bronzed
face, but he waa a large, aplendldly
made man and carried himself easily.
Neither Mra, Prosoott nor Annot, I am
aurry to aay, met hlra with quite the
cordiality they ought He bad antici
pated aomelhingof tha sort from the
tunnof A mint's lettera, and he had come
to the city to see for himself just what
the mischief amonuled to and whether
anything could be done.
If he could have remained his cool
self, content to rest the matter patiently
on hia own merita, Annot might have
eeelt in time how infinitely siiprior be
waa to most of those who surrounded
her and returned voluntarily to that al
legiance which waa really considerably
shaken by the Hutteriea that had of late
turned her pretty, ailly head completely.
But he loved her too well. He waa
too impulsive and Impatient to be able
to stand calmly by anil behold hia pure
little blossom tosaed upon the bosom of
such a stream aa thla which bore her
Annot, too, in her foolish vanity,
could not forbear "showing off" for his
Ik'iicIH stunt) of the new and fashionable
airs she hud at'iptired, Bhe laughed and
chatted with her various admirers and
threw arch, smiling, enticing glnucea
thla way and that, just aa ahe hud aeon
the city belles do. Iu short, Rollln Dra
cut's love, hia emblem of dniutineMs and
pure simplicity, flirted just aa any beau
tiful coquettish worldling might have
done lu her third season.
He was terribly shocked and very
angry. He remonstrated quietly. But
Annot had U'en petted too long to take
rebuke quietly, above all from one
whuin ahe hud expected such unhesitat
ing adoration ami indulgence' as from
him. He went home without seeing her
again, and never ao much aa wrote to
her afterward, He considered her com
pletely lost to him, and Annot, though
scared ut first, felt rather relieved to
have everything got along with ao
About this time apiieured upon the
scene the "conquering hero" in tho per
son of one Raymond bt. Ives, a hand
some young Kiih'lishman of superior iu
li'llot't and fascinating address. Annot
had been flattered anil admired to the
extent of her desires, but, strangely
enough, she had not once imagined her
self lu love with any of those gentlemen
who adored her so gracefully and dressed
It was quite a different thing when
this young Englishman came. He con
trived to impress her with a vague idea
that he waa some great personage or
other in disguise, and he certainly as
sumed haughty enough airs for a great
lord at the very least. t
Much to Annot's surprise, Mrs, Pres
oott did uot seem to like her new ad
mirer, and there was just enough will
fulness in Annot to make her like him
all the more fur that very reason. Mrs.
Preacott fostered her dislike to St, Ives)
she quarreled constantly with Annot
about him, and Anally forbade Annot to
see him. . f 5
The result might have been foreseen,
9t Ives contrived to meet Annot out
somewhere, swore that he loved hnr too
well to live without her and made her
believe him. Late the following night
k carriage was waiting not far from
Mrs. Prtiscott's residence. Annot crept
lofUy .down from her own room and
stole out toward it, and they were driven
swiftly away, Annot sobbing in a hys
terical fright at the step she had taken.
It had been understood that they
should proceed immediately to the house
of a clergyman and be married, but Bt.
Ives proposed that they should leave
the city for that purpose, and, as it was
too late to rentier it probable that they
would easily find a clergyman, postpone
the ceremony till morning dawned.
It was far into the next day before
they stopped at a little country hotel
miles from the city, and Annot, haggard
from sleeplessness and red eyed from
weeping, was oonducted within.
St. Ives ordered breakfust and went
out afterward, as be said, to look for a
minister. Annot waited, stillvery much
dopressed and not feeling at all as she

bat supposed people dirT who wera about
to be married. Botna one knocked.
Blushing guiltily, ahe opened the door;
but Instead of tit. Ives and hia expected
comiiilon, a woman glided into the
room, and throwing back her veil
showed a face of aurpaasing beauty,
and fixed upon the shrinking girl a pair
of dark, burning Italian eyea,
"Who are you? What do you want?"
stammered Annot at last, rallying her
self. The woman's glance softened.
"Yoo are such a child,'' she said "so
yout:g. I am very sorry for you."
"Horry for me? I don't understand
you," Annot aaid, wishing that St. Ives
would come, and thinking that this
strango woman must be crazy, and then
with a low cry sprang to meet Ut Ives,
who had just entered the room, and
stood glaring at tha stranger with en
Banging the door to behind him, and
pushing Annot from him almost sav
agely, be spoke to the woman with the
dark Italian eyes,
"Have you told her?" he asked.
Tha woman shook her head.
Ha laughed bitterly.
"You thought it waa too pleasant a
task for me to be deprived of, ehT
Bt. Ivea turned sharply toward her.
"There's no use in dilly-dallyiug now,
Annot," be said abruptly. "I couldn't
deceive you any longer if I wanted to.
I think you and 1 won't be married this
Annot dropped trembling and uncoin
prehensive into a chair,
"For the very singular reason," he
went on, "that I have already one wife,
and she's too much for me."
The strange woman glided to the side
of the bewildered girl.
"I am his wife, dear," she said almost
tenderly, "Don't mind, it might have
been worse, you know,"
Bt Ives seemed touched by the face of
wblto despair Auuot lifted at the wo
"You're only ten mile from Jayuea
ville, Annot," he said almost remorse
fully, "and there's a stage, I lielieve.

the wiser. Here la money to pay your

did so the bill he had upon her knee full

lie picked them up and offered them
to ber agaiu, aa she waa tying on her
bonnet; but she left the room without
looking at them or him, and went slowly
out of the hotel, with her veil down, her
hetul dixxy, and her heart so heavy it
could hardly throb.
The stage drove up at that moment.
and while it waited she eagerly entered
it, and took her seat, without glancing
toward the single passenger who was
already there. An exclamation caused
her to lift her eyes.
It was too much, too much, that that
face of incredulous surprise should be
long to Rollin Dracut But it did. He
caught her as she fell fainting.
She waked from that swoon to burn
ing fever and the unconsciousness of
delirium; and Rollin, BUpjiorting her all
the way till they reached home, gath
ered from her crazed lips the whole sad
story, or enough of it to wring his heart
and make his own brain whirl.
She lay ill weeks, ami he went every
day to see how low she was. Thou,
when she was pronounced out ot danger,
he left Jayncsville without seeing her at
Two yearn after he came back. He
went to see her as any old friend might,
and he found her so sweetly like the
little Annot who had been his promised
wife once, ao gently penitent for the
pant, so resigned to any fate that might
await her in punishment, that he full
more deeply in love than ever, and asked
her to lie hia wife as though nothing had

Trou f Pumped Bp. '
C. D. Brooke, who lives a half a mils
or so east of Oak park, has a tine trout
stream running through his land. A
couple of days ago his pump threw out
a trout several inches long, and Mr.
Brooke thinks he could have lots of fun
bobbing for trout if he had an open
well reachiug down to the trout stream
that flows beneath that locality. t
There cau be no doubt that a subter
ranean river of considerable volume
ruus through that gravel section, for a
few years ago W. L. Willis, who lived
in the sums neighborhood that Mr.
Brooke does, pumped up a number of
mountain trout This stream seems to
run down toward the Cosuuines, as trout
of good size have been taken from pumps
at Sheldon, many miles south of here, i
This stream probably comes from Lake
Tahoe, that being the nearest mountain
hike of sufficient capacity to keep up the
Btipply that is known to exist beueath
the surface iu this vicinity. Scientists
have long been of the belief that there is
a subterranean outlet to Lake Tahoe,
and as none other has been discovered
it is reasonable to suppose that this may
be it That it is uot a mere pond, with
out source or exit, is evident from the
fact that the trout that have been pumped
up were without the peculiarities that
distinguish fishes taken from under
ground reservoirs or the waters of deep
caverns, and evidently had not long been
on the journey to this point Sacramen

What the Death Meek Shows.
The value of a plaster cast as a por
trait of the dead or living face cannot
for a moment be questioned. It must
of necessity be absolutely true to nature,
(t cannot flatter; it cannot caricature.
It shows the subject as he waa or is,
not only as others saw him In the actual
flesh, but as he saw himself. And in
the case of the death mask particularly,
It shows the subject often as he permit
ted no one but himself to see himself.
He does not posej he does uot "try to
look pleasant." In his mask he is seen,
as it were, with his mask off I Laurence
