Swiftly tw bead that waa not until,
he waa on the atcaincr bound for Tor

reality begin all over again.
Jfow be bad been reading a maga
' sine story of a man lu tbe tropics, a
auaa who waa separated from the girl
be loved: how the girt, passing on a
yacht, bad tossed bottle overboard,
bottle containing a letter to tbe man.
" It waa a pretty atory. a clever story,
but a very unlikely thing to happen,
thought Freeman moodily. He was
situated much as that other man was,
but there would never be any bottle
or message for him! If Lillian bad
" married tbe cotton broker It would not
be strange If ab waa cruising In the
. Caribbean waters, but that abe cared
enough to send him a message of any
sort b did not believe. Such things

somehow tbe crops were harvested

Suddenly be waa aelzed with a deal-
for home to see cities full of

In fact, bis presence waa needless, bla

Morning found him rloMiug the eyea
of the old man of Oragua. who bad
after all gone to the Great Physician
to be cured spiritually as well as bod
ily of bis ailments. When be had
withdrawn from the but of mourning
and Dominique had thrust In tbe cart
a large basket of fruit that the grate
ful relatives of the old man of Oragua
had pressed upon Freeman tbe latter
walked down to a little point of land
that Jutted Into tbe sea. When ha
emerged from a grove of palms Into
the full sunlight he waa startled by
the sight of a large steamer lying per
bapa a quarter of a mile from a ho re.
Two small launchea were putting oil
from her, and another was almost un
der bis very nose at the water's edge.
Wild with excltemeut, be rushed
away and called bis servant to bring
his luggage. Then he intercepted the
first boot, which bad Just landed a
dozen tourists, men and women, wba
looked at the sun browned American
with friendly eyes.
From the sailors Freeman learned
that tbe vessel was the Trlposa. a
tourist ateamer. cruising among tba
islands. Her steering gear bad gone
wrong off Oragua, and while it waa
being repaired those passengers wbo
desired It bad gone aabore. Tbe ateam
er waa outward bound from New Tork
and would make San Juan in the
course of her trip. Tbey thought it
likely that tbe captain would taka
Freeman as a passenger.
Delighted at this happy turn of fata
which seemed to have been brougbl
about by tbe old man of Oragua, Ralpb
found infinite satisfaction In seeing bfc
luggage stowed in the boat Then he
gave final directions to Domlnlquo
and bade blm farewell.
Now the other launches landed tbeii
tourists, and they, too, gazed at Free
man as tbey streamed past. Suddenly
hla heart Jumped madly and tbe blood
raced through bla veins aa it bad not
done alnce he bad last seen Lillian
Wade. For there she waa, staring
bnck with wondering eyes, starry with
happinesa at seeing blm. -
Forgetful of tbe cotton broker and
bis possible relationship to Lillian,
Ralph Freeman found himself holding
ber bands and trying to appear con
ventional before many curious eyes.
At a little distance be saw an aston
ished looking elderly woman wbo seem
ed to be waiting for Lillian.
"Oh, Ralpb! To think you should
be here!" 8be was breathing quickly.
"I was going to you-I'll tell you all
about it later. Then you haven't for
gotten me, and you have forgiven ma
for being auch a bruter be fairly

ra. She had not been well for over
two years, aa ahe had had aeveral
strokes of paralysis, the last proving
fatal. A1I that materia medica' and
careful nuralng could do proved of no
avail. The deceased leaves a, hus
band and seven children, all' living
near, and were present to pay their
last tribute to their beloved mother.
The children are Mra. Viola Klrby. of

and It la needless to say will be great
ty missed, but tbe consolation la left
for those who mourn that ahe has
passed, from the suffering of mortal
sense to her home In the spiritual
realm. "There la no death, what
seems to be Is only transition." "Oh,
never sit we down and aay there'a
nothing left but sorrow! We walk
tbe wlldernesa today, the promised
land tomorrow. And though age
wearies by the way, and hearts break
in the furrow; we'll sow the golden
grain today, and harvest cornea tomor

The election' having gone' for im
provements It Is to be hoped Mllwaukle
will be "lifted out of the mud." There
is no obstacle In the. way and no ex
cuse why this town can't be put on a
par with other growing suburbs of
Portland. Of course there Is quite a
difference of opinion aa to the streets
Improvement should be made. This
idea of digging out a trench In the
middle of the road and throwing in a
little gravel to sink out of sight, does
not require much engineering skill,
but tbe property owners have to dig
down Just the same. It looks reason
abhS to have the work done right In
the first place, and If. aome of th i
work done In other up to date towns
would be studied It might prove a
valuable lesson and it la to be hoped
the present coterie of public official)
will not spend the peoples' money for
some unsatisfactory experimenting. It
Is an easy thing to sit on a road roller
and rock crusher, and draw four or
five dollars a day, but It la another
thing to make a good serviceable and
economical street or road. The fol
lowing la the result of votes cast:
Street Improvements, yea, 94; no, 36.
Shall we hold biennial elections, yea
87; no, 40. Shall Mllwaukle spend Its
