A Dead Past
By MRS. LOVETT CAMERON
"And pray whero have you been hiding
yourself for the past week? Why were
you not at Ascot? I hear you threw
over three Invitations for the week with
out ever giving e. reason. Do you not
know that the whole London world the
female world. I mean has been languish
ing and pining without you? The Park
has been a wilderness and Ilurllngham
a desert waste. Humor says you have
been away making love to a rustic beauty
among the roses, and all the women hnvfi
cried their eyes out for spite and envy!"
"Yours remain bright enough, at any
rate!" said Desmond, in answer to the
above speech, as he sank down into a
chair by tho speaker's side, and looked
at her with a flattering smile of admira
tion. "Ah, you can't tell the state my heart
has been In, though!" replied the lady.
She was a handsome woman, with dark
locks arranged in a wonderful shock orur
her broad brows. To know Mrs. Talbot
was to know a woman of fashion who
was certain to amuse you, who was ready
to flirt or to pick her most familiar
"friends' characters to pieces, who was
a walking encyclopedia of tho sayings
and doings of all the men and women
about whom there was anything worth
-knowing; and who had that kind of im
pulsive and delightfully affectionate man
ner which leads one to suppose that you
are the only person of her acquaintance
against whom she could never utter a
Word of disparagement.
Even ns she sits now In the summer
sunshine of the park, "with her white lace
parasol tipped well over her head, and
her large, unfaltering eyes turned fully
upon him, she Is wondering whether this
absence of his is in any way connected
with the serious part of his life, or bears
upon the secret she is bent upon unrav
eling. "What have you been doing?" she re
peats. "Eating cherries, principally," he re
plies, smiling. "I was assisted by sev
eral thousand birds and one tree elf."
"And what was she like? Young and
nrpffrv. T Kiinrtnco M
"She may have been."
She saw that she had gone far enough,
and adroitly turned the subject.
"Have you heard," she said, "that Fe
licia Grantley, that good-looking girl who
came out last year, has been whipped off
into the country by her father, who
wants to force her into a mariage with
her cousin, who is younger than herself?
Oh, it's quite a tragedy, I assure you!
The poor girl between you and me, 1
don't admire her, she is too scraggy.
came to lunch yesterday with me, and
ehe cried her eyes out."
"What, for me?"
'Kor you, Mr. Vanity! Npt a bit of It;
for Lord Augustus Wray, a fourth son,
you know, with not a penny, and such
a scamp! Of course, Felicia has money
and doesn't care a farthing about his
character, but her father won't have it,
and will have her marry her cousin be
cause there's an old place and a baron
etcy; and they say young Roy Grantley
is in love with some one else, so there
Js material enough for a three-act drama
for yon!" ,
"Hoy Grantley," repeated Brian,
thoughtfully. Where had he heard that
name before? Was.it not Kitten who
had spoken once of a Roy Grantley who
was a boy and who worshiped her? It
would be odd if it should turn out to be
He was not in love with Kitten; he
had no symptoms of any jealous feeling
concerning her; but yet he had a curi
ous feeling of satisfaction at nearmg

"The best thing Miss Grantley could
do, I am sure," he said. "Her father
Is quite right to save her from a black
guard like that."
"Do .you think so? But then if a wom
an loves a man madly, desperately, do
you think she cares what he is?"
This Mrs. Talbot said softly, under
her voice, and flashed her bold eyes
meaningly into his.
"Oh, well, she ought to care!" an
swered Brian, carelessly. "Excuse me!"
nnd he jumped suddenly up from his
chair. "I see a friend I want to speak
He dashed away down the crowded
path. Gertrude Talbot was red with an
ger; she leaned forward and followed him
eagerly with her eyes. Who had ho left
.her for? After what woman had he
rushed away so precipitately? It was no
woman, only a bent, white-haired old
man whom she saw him run after and
"What, Professor! is this indeed you,
loitering in Hyde Park at 1 o'clock in
the day? Wonders will never cease.
But, Mr. Layboume, you are not lookirig
"I am not well." he answered, "a
little over tired, I think. I am up in
town for this great scientific gathering
of which, no doubt, you know. Would
you .like to hear me speak?" asked the
Professor suddenly; "have you attended
any of my lectures? Then would you
like to go totfisht? I am not, of course,
worth listening to in comparison with
Wentley and Shulton and some of our
best men; but I have a ticket to give
away, a good place closo to the platform,
you would hear well. I hate been asked
for it, but I have it here in my pocket,
and I had sooner give Jt to you, Des

Rapidly through Desmond's brain
floated the plans of the day's amusements
the pony races at Ranelagh, the little
dinner at the club with t chosen" friend,
toe. box'' at the opera to which he had
been asked, the iuvitatlon to the supper
uarty afterward. Was he destined to
give up all this for a stuffy lecture room
crowded with old men, to listen to a
learned discourse upon a subject which
ho knew and cared nothing about? He
hesitated. "Kitten would be pleased If
she thought you were there to hear me

and Brian relinquished the prd nary Jr

"When I left her she wns quito well.
Desmond, If I die, you will be kind to
my littlo girl, will you not?" he said
"Kind to her! Of course, I shall"; but
you are not going to die, Mr. Lay
borune." "I don't know I don't know life and
death are mysteries; who can tell how
soon tho one condition may bo over and
the other entered upon? It is a great
weight off my mind that you aro to bo
my child's lawful guardian; that
thought should make me live." ,
The lecture hall In Burlington Houso
was crowded that night, when, somewhat
late, in spite of a hurried dinner, Brlau
came In to take a seat. The Professor
had already begun his lecture, yet his
eyes flashed a momentary greeting to
ward him as ho sat down.
Then, without listening .over much to
tho subject matter of tho discourse,
Brian looked at tho crowd of eager, ven
erable faces, watched the straining eyes
and ears, and wondered at the hushed si
lence as the great men around- him hung
upon tho naturalist's words. He heard
the voice, which was at first somewhat
feeble and faltering, suddenly warm to
the work. Ho saw how the face of the
pale old man fired into a glow of glorious
enthusiasm for his subject; how his eyes
shono and gleamed, how his thin hand
trembled as he stretched it forth, how
the man became forgotten in the sage!
Then of a sudden the slight, bent fig
ure upon tho platform swayed nnd tot
tered. There was a crV, a smothered
murmur from the crowd, a rush of hasty
footsteps, and the sound of a dull, heavy
Brian, with the rest, sprang upon tho
platform and forced his way among the
frightened throng. There went up a
great wail of terror and lamentation from
Brian sank upon his knees and pil
lowed the white, still face upon his
"Air!" Air!" he cried, hoarsely; "stand
back, and fetch a doctor!"
But neither heaven's air nor human
doctor could aid Professor Laybourne
nny more the great naturalist was
"Coming down by last train to-night.
To Miss Laybourne, from B. Des
mond." Kitten stood reading the telegram
over 'again for the twentieth time; the
grave childlike eyes shone with an in
ward gladness, there was a peach bloom
upon her soft, delicate face.
"He is coming to-night!" she repeated
to herself in a whisper; "to-night I
shall see him again!" And then she fell
to wondering a little, why it was that it
was he who had sent the telegram and
not her father, for, of course, her father
was coming home too.
"But my Daddy Is so busy when he
i3 up in London," she told herself in
explanation, "so many great people want
him, perhaps even the Queen herself
might have sent for-him to Windsor.
Yes, that is it, no doubt; after his lecture
last night he will be made more of than
She took a letter out of lie.r pocket
which she had received that morning. v
"I am going to lecture to-night; there
will be a great crowd, I believe. I wish
I had my fairy with me to copy out my
notes? they are a sad scrawl, but one
has time for nothing in London's great
heart Never mind, my little girl, I
shall soon be home again now; I cannot
say for certain what day, but it is sure
to be soon." I
"Evidently," said Kitten" to herself,
"he found unexpectedly that he could
get away to-day and told Mr. Desmond
to telegraph for him, for he has prob
ably gone to Windsor to see the Queen,
and then Mr. Desmond said he would
The day wore away happily enough.
Kitten rifled the garden for flowers 10
decorate her father's study and to set
forth the simple supper table like a
royal feast She sang over her labors
and was as happy as a bird. The little
refrain kept ringing itself over and over
again in her heart
"He is coming to-nightrr-to-night I
shall see him!" It was like a peal of
joy bells within her.
She would see him! Oh, happy time
of youth and love when to Bee the one
dear face is enough to fill one's heart
with divine rapture! There comes a
time, after change and coldness and the
cruelty of life have swept over what
we love, when the sight of that one
dearest face, can only stab the heart
with pain, and fill the soul with hope
less anguish and the miserable mockerj
of happiness that is past and gone from
When she had filled every bowl and
dish and vase in the house with flowers,
sho called her dog and went out into
the fields, tracing over again all the
paths through the meadows nnd tho
woods where sho had wandered with
Brian. It was a sweet delight to her;
she recalled his" words, his looks, his
slightest gesture; each field, each stile,
each tree seemed to bring back the swift
days of enchantment more vividly to her,
"And it will all come over nggnln,"
she said to herself with rapture. "Here
and here wo shall walk again at
this gate wo shall linger, along this green
meadow we shall saunter, sido by side;
here, at this plank across tho stream
he will reach out his hand to grasp mine
to help me over, just as he did the last
time wo came to It; It will be tho same
thing all over again!" She was too young
to understand that things that are past
never return,, that joys that are gone
come back no more.
Kitten was dancing around the supper
table In a fever of excitement aad de
light; it was after nine, at every Inattuit
the travelers might arlve. How pretty
the table looked, thought Kitten as sho
stooped over tho flowers to fix a rebel
lious roeebud In Its place or to put the
final touch to the sprays of Jessamine

Tha glass and silver glittered under the
rose-ahaded lamp. The" chairs wcro set
In their places round the table; threo
chairs, for Kitten did not moan to bo
sent away to-night, and by tho side of
the professor's chair there lay his easy
slippers just as ho liked to find them
wlen he came home.
Everything was ready; would tho trav
elers never come? All at once tho door
bell rang. Tho belli Whero wns her

was all that Brain could utter; "how

"Do not," sho said simply; "I know,
my daddy Is dead."

IIo had expected a tcrrlblo scene of
grief and anguish he had pictured to
himself how sho would cast herself down
and wc,ep: how tho smnll, childish frame
would be shaken with sob3 and the beau
tiful, grave eyes dimmed nnd blotted out
with her tenrs. All tho way down from
town he had dreaded what was before
him, for he was one of those men to
whom tho sight of woman's tears Is ter
rible. What really happened was so extra
ordinarily different to what ho expected
that It seemed to him that he must bo
"I know," Kitten had said; "ho is
dead." Then she turned round and went
back into the dining room. IIo henrd
tho loud wailing cry of tho old woman
behind him, but from the dead man's
daughter not a sound. Her lips framed
ono word, which was barely audible.
"Last night it wns quite sudden ho
was lecturing at Burlington House. It
was all over In ono moment; ho could
not havo suffered 'at all. Kitten; wo
must bo thankful for that He was
speaking, and then ho fell forward, and
it was over."
"And there was no time? I could not

"Impossible. It wns nil over in a few
seconds. Your father expected this.
Kitten; ho knew his death might be sud

"Oh, yes; I know, it was his heart."

which she spoko, tho Intense calm of her

so small and childlike, and her words

He moved nearer to her. "My pool
little girl, what can I say, what can I
do to comfort you?"
"You can say nothing, do nothing; It's
ridiculous yes ridiculous to say that to
me. I have lost my all." For a mo

despairing gesture, then. she paused, and
they fell again nervelessly by her side:
"And you talk about comfort! Unless
you can give me back my dead, you can

tho slow, lingering step of a person who
is very ill, but she turned back again to
say to him: "You must be very hungry,

He watched her clamber painfully-up
the staircases to her own bedroom door.
A sort of terror of what would follow
possessed him. It Is this sort of grief,
ho told himself with horror, that un

brain fever or kills them outright

Making tho Feast Heal.
In a one-act piece called "Cramond
Brig," which Sir Henry Irving produc
ed In London, there la a supper scene
In a cottage. A steaming sheep's head
and an oat-cake are brought in, and
the cotter's small boy is supposed to
do justice to tho feast.
As a matter of fact, tho boy who
played the part ate with little relish,
which is scarcely to be.wdndered at,
for stage feasts are not prepared by
chefs or mothers, nnd the sheep's head
was served without salt or other seas
oning, the only stage demand being
that It should send up a cloud of
steam and be piping hot.
One night the meat chanced to bo
well cooked, nnd Mr. Marshall P. Wild
er says in tho New York Tribune thut
the boy entered into the spirit of tho
sceno with extraordinary realism, Irv
ing noticed It, and spoke of it nfter the
"How did the sheep's head go, my
boy?" he asked.
"'Twos prime!" declared tho boy.
"It had salt in it to-night."
"Ah, I thought you liked It," said
Irving. Then, witli a .sigh of regretful
memory, he added, "Boys aro always
No sooner wns that hungry boy out
of hearing than Irving ordered thut a
sheep's head should be carefully cook
ed nnd served every night.
"And mind," he said to the players,
"don't hurry the scene, but bo govern
ed by the boy's appetite."
After that it was hard to tell which
got tho most out of that savory sheep's
head the boy who ate It or tho actor
who watched lilin.
"Do you enjoy a holiday?"
"No," answered tho candid person,
"but I derive benefit from one. After

work seems much pleasunter," Wash

A simple effectivo plan for building

of Avn, Mo. IIo says:

Wo have from tlmo to time laid be
fore our readers tho cost of putting
corn in tho silo, says Furmera Trib
une. Some men aro able to grow tho
corn at a cost of about CO cents per
ton of green matter, They aro ablo to
put It In the silo for another GO cents,
making tho total cost of tho silage in
tho silo approximately $1 per ton.
Sometimes tho cost goes ns high as
$1.50, sometimes even higher.
Sam Schilling, who Is inanngcr of
Joel Phontwole's heard at Northfluld,
Minn., kept nn accurate record of tho
cost of putting sixteen acres of corn
in his silo Inst year and theso figures
were glvoji beforo the Minnesota But
ter Makers' Association this spring by
Mr. Schilling. They are as follows:
10 acres corn at ?8 $128 00
Cost of cutting, $1 per aero 1(5 00
Two men loading five days 15 00
Two men in silo IB 00
Four teams hauling five days. . 00 00
Engine five days and man 25 00
Fuel' for engine 10 00
One man to feed machine 10 00
Cost of 200 tons silage $285 00
Cost per ton of silage 1 42
Tho average yield per acre in this
Instance was 12.5 tons of green corn.
The cost of tho ensilage, including tho
raising, which was estimated at ?8 per
acre, was a little high. Consulting tho
table, however, it will bo seen that it
required four teams hauling for five
days top draw the corn to tho silo per
day. This means that tho silage had
to bo drawn from some distance or
more could havo been hauled, but even
at $1.50 per ton silage Is a vpry cheap
Loading Corn Fodder.
Loading corn fodder may not bo
very hard work to tho small farmer,
but when one has (lie product of ninny
acres to load It becomes a formidable
operation. Tho work can be much
more easily done if tho following de
vice is used: Make a loader by using
a two-Inch plank ten feet long with
cleats of inch stuff nailed on ono sido
at short Intervals. At ono end nail a
cleat on the under side, which will bo
threo inches wider thnn tho bonrd on
each side. Tlo small ropes to this cleat

Crops Without Irrigation,
The most widespread movement in
tho history of tho country for tho de
velopment of unirrlgntcd lands In tho
West Is In progress this spring. Hun
dreds of thousands of acres are being
brought under cultivation as the result
of government and other Irrigation
projects, but aside from this a plan far
greater In Its scope has been started for
the successful use of farm land with
Good Outside Paint.
A substitute for white oil paint rany
bo mado as follows! Four quarts of
skim milk, 1 pouijd of fresh slacked
llmo, 12 ounces of linseed oil, 4 ounces
of whlto Borgundy pitch, 0 pounds of
Spanish white, to bo mixed ns follows:

upon it a littlo nt n tlmo until It is

milk; tho oil in which tho pitch must
bo previously dissolved over a slow
fire and cooled, to bo added a little
nt a time, thon tho rest of tho milk,
nnd aftorwards tho Spanish white.

If it is thought necessary to apply
mulch around tho huso of trees or
shrubs ns a winter protection caro
must bo used not to do tho work too
soon, particularly If anything Jn tho
unturo of a fertilizer Is used, such as
conrso stablo manure, for thcro Is al
ways danger of inciting renewed
growth In tho tree, just us it Isbcgln
ning to go to sleep for tho winter, and
this growth, being oxtremoly tender,
will bo killed by tho first cold wenther,
probably with much Injury to tho treo.
A better plan Is not to apply tho mulch
until the ground freezes, applying
moro, if necessary, later on.
By far tho best plan of all Is Jo uso
earth with which to protect tho roots
of Uio treo or shrub during tho first

thick for three feet around tho treo.
Later, If it gets too cold, a littlo coarse
manure may bo ptit on over the soli.
By this plan tho tree or shrub will
