ste BHmmoned up all her courage aad

Which, she knew he wished her to coa-
tier a forbidden one.
"Brian, will you be very angry with

admiringly. "Never had Kitten looked
prettier. A white dress deeply trimmed
With sof enlace, and a tiny white lace
bonnet perched upon her yellow hair, set

and heightened the effect of that pale,
transparent appearance, which a painter

"What dreadful sin are you meditat
"May I ask you one question, Brian,
End I will never speak of it again? D
( about that that other woman."
In a moment his brow was black and
angry, and he had put her from him.
The tears gushed Into her eyes.
"Brian, don't don't look so at met I
cannot bear It, but I suffer so horribly.
t fancy when, you go out that you go,
ta see her."
"In London, nol I do not know even
If she Is alive; she may be dead. She
has not been In England for years, there!
Now never mention this subject again."
He spoke with a great effort. It was
terrible to him even to allude to that
other to this girl whom he had inado his
wife. Had she never been iuqnlsltlve
and curlons, sheneed never have known
anything about her. It was her fault, ho
told himself savagely. If she suffered
from her own foolish Imaginings she had
no one to blame but herself. As for Kit

Sho was not In London not in Eng
land she might' even bo dead! And
what is a dead rival to a woman who
Urea and breathes and loves?
One evening early in May the. laud
ed at Waterloo station a small party of
four persons, accompanied by a vast and
Incongruous cargo of luggage.
The party consisted of a lady and her
child, and two servants, one of whom
was an Indian ayah, picturesquely
swathed about the head' In white muslin
drapery with gorgeous red and yellow
Birmingham printed, cotton skirts and
rough heavy silver anklets inclosing her
bare brown legs and feet To this per
sonage clung the child, a white-faced,
big-eyed bor of about five, who whimper
ed miserably and clutched bis attendant
convulsively round the neck. The other
servant was an elderly English lady's
maid of dowdy apearance, who, how
ever, bestirred herself to the best of her
ability to rescue some few odds and ends
of luggage from the immense pilo of
boxes and packages which began to be
disgorged from the train, and to be
amassed upon the crowded platform.
The lady stood a little apart, with a
hopeless sense - of helplessness and In
competence; she looked very tired. It
was the express train from Southamp
ton, and the P. and O. steamer having
arrived the same day, the train was
crowded wth passengers from India. La
dles who were worn out and thin, sickly
looking groups of children, men who
wore strange light coats and hats, and
were wrinkled and yellowed Into prema
ture old age, all bustled about together
In search of their belongings.
"Can I be of any assistance to you,
Mrs. Earle?" said a voice at her elbow.
One of her late fellow passengers, a tall,
aoldler-llke looking man, with Iron grey
hair and mustache", and a skin as yellow
as parchment stood beside her. "Have
yon any friends to meet you?"
"No, I have no one," she answered
rather sadly. "I almost wish now, Colo
nel Trefusis, that I had taken your ad
rice and remained at the Southampton
hotel until to-morrow; this confusion Is
dreadful, Is It not? How Is one ever to
get one's luggage? and I am so tired 1"
"I will get your luggage for you."
"Oh, I could not think of troubling
you; you have your own to look after."
"My own Is not much; but you must
not stand here. You look fit to drop
carrying that heavy dressing bag, too;
your maid will go with me and point out
your things. Here, porter! take this
lady's bag and cloaks, and put her Into
Col. Trefusis signed to the ayah to
follow her mistress, and marched him
self off to the scene of action, accom
panied by the lady's maid.
Rosamond sat in the cab and waited.
It -was getting quite dark, the lamps
.11. lighted In the streets: It had
been raining, and the pavements were
wet and sloppy, reflecting tneir paie ra
diance Irregularly in the puddles. There
was a crowd outside the station, a con
fusion of cabs and vans. The child in
,.. i. am nn-n vehicle went continuously.

Ool. Trefusis put his face In at -the
cab window. "We have got all the lug
gage, and I have put your maid Into an
other cab. All the lighter things are
with you, and the heavy cases will be
sent up by van to-morrow. NoV, where
are you going? Where shall I tell the
cabman to drive?"
She looked helplessly at him. "I I
don't know. It Is so long ten years
since I was In England, aud then I was
never much In London. Where had I
"Poor soull" muttered the colonel be
low his breath; her desolate, condition
struck him painfully. He had. seen her
the queen of Anglo-Indian society In a4
station where her husband had been a
great and Influential man. Rosamond
had held a little court of her own; she
had been flattered, admired, adored, even
by an enthusiastic circle of Worshipers!
she had been ns a queen, a cold, proud
queen, it is true, dispensing her smiles
and her favors discreetly, and wltn un
ruffled dignity, but always a queen. And
now she was at home, and In all London
she did not seem to have a friend, or to
know of a roof to shelter her.
"Where had I better go?" she repeated
He recommended the Langham hotel,
and told her that he would call and see
her in the morning.
In the morning she was up bctlme
and busy at her writing case, and when
the waiter brought In her breakfast tray
she gave him a note. '
"You have a messenger,- I suppose,
who can take this letter for me? It Is to
the Carlton Club; Is that far from here?"
"Oh, no. ma'am, ho could walk there
In twenty minutes."
"I would rather he drove. I want It
delivered quickly. H6w long will It
"Not five minutes."
Five minutes! In five minutes then he
would get her letter, see her handwriting
once more know that she was at home
and near him. Her heart beat wildly at
"He will get It at his breakfast," she
said to herself. Then she called her maid
and gave her a long list of commissions
to go out and do, and told her to take
out the ayah and the child, too; Bhe had
a feverish desire to be alone. Tho ser
vant left her. She ate her breakfast hur
riedly and sent away the things almost
untasted. Then she got up and walked
about the room Impatiently; she allowed
herself half an hour, and then she began
to fret. Presently the waiter came In
and told her that her messenger had re
turned. He had given her note to the
hall porter at the club and the gentleman
had not yet come into tho club.
Thl sanswer Inspired her with fresh
patience. He might be late, but, of
course, he would be there in the course
of the morning; all men go to their clubs
to get their letters. Rosamond remem
bered enough of London life to know
this. So she waited patiently enough.
Two hours went by, sho was beginning
to feel nervous and sick with suspv.it,
when all at once she heard footsteps out
side and there was a rap at the door.
The waiter flung open the door and
Bhe felt rather than saw that there was
a gentleman behind him. She half rose
from the table, trembling in every limb;
there was a giddiness before her eyes; in
stinctively she pressed one hand upon
her heart, steadying herself against the
edge of the table with the other.
"Colonel Trefusis," announced the ser-
She had forgotten his very existence!
"Well, and how are you this morning.
Mrs. Earle better, I hope, and rested?
It was a terribly trying end to a- Ioug,
tiring Journey, wasn't it? But, -my dear
Mrs. Earle, surely there is something
amiss; are you 111, are you faint?" For
he bad perceived all at once that she was
deadly pale-and that she had sunk back
Into her chair, half covering her face
with her hand.
Rosamond roused herself and sat up
right, looking up at him with a smile.
"I am only a little faint; there-Is noth
ing the matter. Pray do not look so
anxious, and sit down, won't you? I
suppose I am over tired, but I am very
glad to see you."
Col. Trefusis looked away out of the
window, drumming his fingers up and
down on the table by his side. He was
thoughtful for a few moments. Then
suddenly be drew up his chair nearer to
"My dear Mrs. Earle, I have known
you for a long time; will you not treat
me as a friend?"
"Certainly; are you not a friend one
of the best I ever had?" she answered
"Then forgive me for asking you. What
are you going to do In England what
are your plans?"
"I don't know," she answered, looking
down and speaking with evident reluc
tance. "I havo no plans as yet I have
no home, no friends, no relatives."
"Dear, dear, dear!" said the colonel,
In evident emotion.
Then be got up and took a couple of
turns across the room. Suddenly ho stop
ped In front of her, regarding her earn
estly and fixedly with his keen, blue eyes,
"My dear Mrs. Earle, I am going to
say something that I bad not meant to
say to you, not for a Jong while, that
possibly I had better not say at all, and
yet what you tell -mo about yourself
compels me to say It to you now."
She looked up at him utterly bewil
dered and perplexed. '
"I am a plain man, Mrs. Earle a man
of actions and not of words. I havo
been a soldier all my life, as you know,
and when I say a thing I mean if. What
I am going to say now has been my fixed
intention for many months past I wW
try and make my meaning clear te-ybn.
I know well that it is not yet a-whole
year since the great trouble of widow
hood befell you the greatest grief that
can possibly overwhelm a good and loving
She lowered her eyes, while a faint
flush stole into her clear, pale cheeks. If
he only knew If be only guessed she
thought, with a swift pang of self-re-mersa,
what this trouble of wldowheed
had brought to hr, who had always '
borne herself as a good and faithful wife
should bear herself! Oh, If tho world
knew In what light she herself regarded
"Yes," she said slowly and llngerlngly,
though Consenting to his words.
"I know that It Is soon cruelly soon
even and yet your utter frlendlcssness
and desolateness force me to speak to
you. I want you to know and to feel
that you have In me one to whom yen
can turn at any moment I can offer
you, at least, whenever you choose to
tako It, "iftruest devotion, a home, which
I will strive to render a happy one to
you and your child, and a heart which
until I knew you had never yet been
"Oh, Col. Trefusis!"
"Nay," he said quickly, perceiving per
haps the unspoken words In her regret
ful eyes, "nay, give me no answer now.
I do not press It I do not even wish It
I know that I am speaking far too soon
to a heart that cannot have recovered
yet from Its wounds, and I know also
that T can never expect anything like
the first and deepest love of your life
which has-been already spent"
She shivered and shrank away, cover
ing her face with her hands.
"Ah, now I have hurt you, my dear1,
dearest Mrs. Earle," he cried In distress.
"I am a brute to touch upon your recent
sorrow, am I not? I only want you to
know and feel that you nro dear to be,
and that I would fain devoto my whole
life to the task of giving you back, it
not happiness, at least something of your
lost peace, and I will expect so littlo In
return if you will onty trust mo with
your life. Do not answer mo, only say
that In six mouths or In a year you will
let me come to you again with my peti
tion, aud meanwhile that you will let me
be your friend, and your protector, and
that you will rely upon me in every
thing." "Oh! Col. Trefusis! I nm so sorry
for you are so good to me, so very good.
No, no; do not let mo deceive you with
"I have spoken too soon, but I will be
silent now. By and by I will speak
"No, It would do no good. What you
ask Is Impossible now or ever."
Then he rose from her side and took
her hand in both his.
"Nothing impossible, dear friend," he
said, very earnestly, "and time softens
all sorrow. I shall never despair, and I
shall never give you up, never, at least,"
he added, with a smile, "unless what is
fndned unlikely, that you aro to loro
again, and to lovo another man."
And then, not knowing how his words
pierced her through and through, he left
her and went away.
And all day long Rosamond Earle sat
indoors and waltod for the lover of her
youth, all day long In vain, for it wbb
nearly 7 o'clock before Brian Desmond
turned leisurely in at the door of his

Object la to Find Traces of Prehistoric
Han In Them.
Ethnologists of tho country arc al
most continually making excavations
In caves In various parts of the United
States In the bopeof discovering tan
gible evidences of a race of men that
is supposed to have inhabited North
America in prehistoric times, accord
ing to the Washington Star. One of
the most recent investigations made
In this country with that hope In view
has Just been completed by Dr.
Charles Peabody, of Phillips Acad
emy, Andover, Mass. A large cave at
Cavetown, Md.. near Hagerstown, was
the scene of the explorations, and in
that place Dr. Peabody, together with
"Warren K. Moorehead, also of An
dover, with a force of ten men, was
digging for more than a month In
.search for traces of the early human
Inhabitants of the country.
At the Invitation of Dr. Peabody,
Dr. W. H. Holmes, of the Bureau of
American Ethnology, and J.- D. Mc
Gulre, of this, city, also spent several
days at Cavetown assisting In the In
vestigation. No fossil bones were found by Dr.
Peabody's party in the cave In which
excavations were made, but In a quar
ry located about 800 feet from tho
mouth of the cave fossil bones of
animals were unearthed. Some of the
fossil bones were of the early cave
bear and of the elk, but, so far ns
known now, no bones of man were
found. All the bones unearthed by
the exploring party will be carefully
studied and their identification will bo
The cave in which the excavations
were mude at Cavetown Is about 100
feet wide by 100 feet long. Mr. Mc
Guire made explorations In this cave
two years ago when he was collecting
specimens for the Carnegie Institu
tion. Tho upper strata of the cavo
floor consists largely of camp ashes,
etc., and excavations In this strata by
Mr. McGuIre revealed large quantities
of broken pottory, arrow heads, bono
and stone tools, which had been left
by the early Indians, who evidently
bad made the cave their habitation.
Underlying the strata of camp ashes
there is a layer of stalagmite varying
from six Inches to several feet In
thickness, and underneath this strata
is found tho red cave earth similar
to tho formation found In the enves
of Europe in which fossil bones of an
imals and of ancient men have been
Although the search for evidences
of prehistoric man in North Atnorica
have been conducted for many years
without success, yet the scientists are
confident that their efforts will some
day bo rewarded with success. It is.
expected that ifromains or ancient
man are found they will bo likely to
bo found In caves, and for that rea
son tho caves of the country aro usu-
nllv the scenes of the excavations.
The fossils found in the quarry at
Cavetown by Dr. Peabody's party are
considered Interesting as denoting the
class of animals that Inhabited the
continent during tke later geological

Dr. L. O. Howard, entomologist of
the Department of Agriculture, "has
Just made pilbllc Borne startling state
ments of tho property losses cnused by
Insects. He believes they aggrcgato
over $300,000,000 a year. The Rocky
Mountain locust, or Western grasshop

of growing crops. The chlnchbug alone

1850. As for the mosquito, npart from
the losses believed to be duo to its per
nicious activity In the spread of yellow
fever and malaria, it is an immense
depredator of real estato values. A
Now Jersey newspaper recently esti
mating that its extermination in that
one State atone would add to Its real
estate valuation not less than $100,000.
It certainly would pay to wage a con
tinuous war of extermination against
all theso Insects."
Feeding; Floor for Ilosra.
When one has a number of hogs to
feed the trough is not always the best
thing to uso for the purpose, for the
swine are apt to break It down or else
are unable to get the food fast enough
to suit them, and so get to quarreling.
One of tho best methods of feeding Is
a large pan or floor made of cement
and rough logs; this may be of any
dimensions desired, although It Is best
made Just wide enough so that the ani
mals can feed from both sides, which
will accomplish much In the way of
keeping them out of It with their feet.
Make tho frame of rough lumber or of
logs cut in half and some six or eight
Fasten this frame securely at the
corners and also fasten securely to the
floor so that the swlno will not root It
up. Then make a floor lnsldo of ce
ment, not making It very thick, but of
about tho same grain as would be
used for a stable floor. If desired the
frame may lncludo a board floor over
which tho cement- floor Is laid. The
edge will prevent tho corn from being
pushed asldo aud trampled upon. It !s
not intended to use this feeding floor
for slop or for soft food of any kind,
but only for grain, roots and roughage.
The Illustration shows tho plan clearly
and any ono can easily build such a
floor, which, If carefully mado, will
last for years.
Value of Good Honda,
After careful Inquiry It baa been
found that tho nverago haul of tho
American farmer in getting his prod
uct to market or to the nearest ship
ping station Is twelve miles, and tho
average cost of hauling over tho com
mon country roads Is 25 cents a ton
per mile, or $3 a ton for a twelve-mile
haul, says Portland Oregonlan. An
estimate places tho total tons hauled
at 800,000,000 a year. On the estimate
of $3 a ton for twelve miles tills would
make the total cost of getting the sur
plus products of the farm to the local
market or to the railroad no less than
$000,000 a figure greater than the
operating expenses of all the railroads
of the United States. If anything could
