"You, Kitten! How cnn you bo a ser

Thcro Is tho agent. Ralkes."

Brian will nover set foot In Kepplngton
Hall again. Do not ask me why. I
know It, and I shall be safe there quite
safe, for who can say a word against
me If I am under his roof? Oh, yes, I
have thought of all that, and how un
kind people are, and what Ill-natured
things they would say; but, you see,
thero I am B.ife, and I shall be dead to
them nil and to him," she added below
Briaii did not come home that after
noon until nearly dinner time. A long
day of almost complete isolation, devot
ed to earnest reflection, had had a good
effect upon him.
Ho ran upstairs lightly, and opened
the drawing room door. Kitten was not
there. Then he recollected that it was
late, nnd that she was, no doubt, In her
own room, esslng for dinner. Ho went
to her bedroom, but the door was wide
open and the room empty.
He slammed to his door and went to
his dressing table. Upon his pincushion
lay an envelope addressed to himself In
his wifo's handwriting. With a strange,
Bickuuing apprehension, he toro it open
"My dear husband, we have made a
terrible mistake, and we can never be
happy together. I nm going away so
that you may be free, and may be often
with her who has your heart. Do not
look for me, for you will never find me;
you will be far happier without me, but
I shall always love you and think of
you. I could not fill your life or your
heart, dearest love, and to do less than
that is too hard for me to bear, and so
I am leaving you. Good by."
No more, no reproach, no agony of
complaint, no anguish of despair. His
wife had left him, and some one must
have told her about Rosainond Barle.
Of all the persons who Buffered be
cause Kitten chose to run away from her
husband's house, none endured at first a
more acute sense of agony conected with
that event than did Margaret Grantley.
The next day all tho world knew of it.
The scandal-mongers and tho gossip-lovers,
and all the crowd of tittle-tattlers,
male and female, buzzed about like bees
out of a hive over this one little delight
ful morsel of scandal which had come
to disturb, with a pleasing excitement,
the even current of a hitherto uneventful
season. It was the talk of tho clubs,
and the popular topic of the park.
"It seems that Brian Desmond neg
lected herj" said one.
"Well, she musUbe a thoroughly bad
lot," asserted another; "aud such a fool,
too, to go and bolt!" This one, of course,
was a woman. ,
And first aud foremost among them
all, as a matter of course, was Mrs. Tal
bot, and mnny were tho knowing winks
nnd nods and shakes of her head, half
uttered sentences, and half-completed
revelations, by which she gave everybody
to understand that she knew of a great
many more horrible and dreadful details
than did any one else, and that thero
were things things connected with tho
whole business! Ah, well, if they were
but known well, she could only say that
the hair on the heads of the whole pop
ulation of London would simply stand on
end with it! -
"And is it really true, then, that that
poor youvg fool, Sir Roy Grantley, has
gone off with her?" asked some one.
"Not a doubt of it," answered Ger
trude, almost viciously, for sho was .an
gry with Roy for admiring Kitten.
"Why, I met his sistor at supper last
night, and you should have seen the
poor woman's face; why, bIio nearly
fainted when she heard the news."
Three days tnus passed away, and still
conjecture and gossip ran rife, and scan
dal refused to be silenced concerning
Mrs. Desmond and her doings. And
then one fine morning, just when Mar
garet was nearly driven dempnted by all
the rumors and hints which her dear
friends In every direction took care to
convey to her, up drove Roy himself in
a hansom, to her door in Connaught
Square, with his small portmanteau
above him, and with as unconcerned an
air as though he had been away for a
couple of days' hunting or shooting.
"For heaven's sako, Roy, what is tho
meaning of all this?" she cried breath
lessly to him, as he entered her draw
Roy looked surprised, almost moro by
her manner than by hor words. His sis
ter was very palo, her voice shook with
emotion, nnd her bands, as he took them
In his, trembled nervously.
"My dear Margaret, I do not under
stand you. Is anything the matterV"
"Anything the matter? How can you
ask such a thing? Do you take me for
a child, Roy? Do you suppose I do not
know, havo not heard everything every
thing?" u .
. "I have no Idea to what you are allud-.
Ing," bo answered her In calm surprise,
looking slightly puzzled and bewildered.
"Where Is Mrs. Desmond?" she asked
him almost In a whisper, so terrible was
her anxiety. ,
"What has that got to do with you?
bs answered her Impatiently, almost
""Ahr she cried, "then Jt Is true what
verybody Is saying? It was you who
took her away from her husband's house
i.you know whero she Is," sho answered
recklessly. , , lt .
Once before Margaret bad seen that
wild blase of anger In her young broth
er's face onco before, whon sho had
said thlngB against Kitten. In one mo
ment Roy was transformed, his eyes
(lashed, his brow contracted, a storm of
pAssion broke out all over the smooth,
young face. He remindod her of his
"How dare you," he said hoarsely,
"how dare you speak such a thing of
her, she who is as puro as an angel, as
holy as a saint. What can you be like
to venture to smirch tho whiteness of her
name by your vlla slanders?"
Margaret fell back a step. Almost
it seemed to her as if Roy would have
struck her, the rago in his face was so
terrible. This boy her boy, who had
been as a child to her, was a boy no
longer, but a man, and a man with
whom it was not safe to meddle. He
Whlto with anger, and Incapable of
replying, save In a blind tocrent of strong
and disjointed words, Roy broko away
and betook himself to Felicia. He sprang
upstairs three stops at -a time, and burst
into his cousin's drawing room.
Mrs. Talbot was sitting with her. As
he entered Felicia uttered a cry of sur
prise and delight, aud ran eagerly for
ward to meet him.
"Oh, Roy! Roy! how delighted I am;
why havo you been away? But, of
course, now you will bo able to explain
whero you havo been. How glad I am
that you have como back; now nil these
horrid, wicked scandals will bo stopped.
Did I not tell you, Gertrude, that It was
"Well, that remains to bo seen, my
dear Felicia," answered Gertrude airily.
"Sir Roy lias not cleared himself yet
you see, to say tho least, It is unfOrtu
nato that he aud Mrs. Desmond should
have been both 'missing' on the same
day. It remains to bo explained, of
"Why on earth should Roy's absence
be connected with Mrs. Desmond," cried
Felicia impatiently; "or who indeed can
say that he has been away at all?"
"Why, my dear" docking them off on
her fingers, "three dinners to which he
was engaged, and at which he never turn
ed up nor even sent any excuse, remark
ed Gertrude, with a careless shrug of
This was true, and Roy for the first
time recollected these broken engage
ments, with a sort of horror at his own
carelessness. Ho looked from ono to the
other of the ladles In absolute dismay;
he began to perceive in what light his
conduct appeared to the world.
"It is not true?" pleaded his cousin,
with a wistful entreaty in her dark eyes.
"No, of course it is not true," he an
swered quickly. "How could It be true?
But everybody seems to have gono mad.
For heaven's sake tell me how this has
got about, and what I am to do to stop
it?" Ho was no longer angry, only dis
mayed and distressed beyond measure.
"You have only to say you uon t know
whero Mrs. Desmond is," said Gertrude.
"But I cannot say that. I do know
where she is," he answered gravely.
And then Mrs. Talbot laughed.
In all his life Roy never hated Mrs.
Talbot so cordially and so intensely as
he did when she uttered that short laugh.
It was a laugh that meant so much.
Contemptuous disbelief In mankind, tri
umphant confirmation of the suspicions
of tho world, tho ruin of Kitten's fair
name, all seemed -to be comprised in that
short, sneering outburst of ill-timed hi
Felicia, on tho contrary, seemed op
pressed with despair at her cousin's most
unexpected answer. She sank down into
a chair with a look of helpless distress,
and tears gathered thickly In her eyes.
"Oh, Roy," she cried, "don't, don't say
that, it cannot bo true don't say it."
"Why should I not say It?" he an
swered, a little defiantly, because of that
other woman who sat by with a sneer
unon her lips, "it is quite true. I do
know where Mrs. Desmond Is now. Why
should I deny It? Sho was in great
trouble. Sho sent for me because I am
her oldest friend, and I helped her to
leave town and to go to a place where she
wished to stay for a little time."
"And. whero is that, pray?"
"That is her secret and mine," he an
swered frowning. And then Mrs. Talbot
She got up and shook out her skirts",
and prepared to take her leave of Fe
licia. "It won't wash, Sir Roy, It won't
wash!" alio said, with odious laugh still
upon her lips. "Will It, Felicia, dear?"
"I don't see why you should doubt my
cousin's word," said Felicia, rather dog
gedly; "there is nothing extravagant In
what lie has toiu us. lie is airs, uea
mond's oldest friend. If she was In trou
ble it was quite natural that sho should
send to him."
And then Gertrude laughed again and
took her leave of the cousins.
There was one thing which Roy un
derstood, and of which Gertrude and the
world knew nothing, and that was tne
peculiarity of Kitten's character, which
had led her to do a thing which, to the
eyes of others, was foolish and repre
hensible; but which was in entire accord
ance with tho natural simplicity of her
own mind. Even Felicia, who was affec
tionate and sympathetic, could nof enter
"Roy," she said to him, when the door
had dosed upon Gertrude, "this Is too
dreadful! How Is this business to be
bettered? How are these two peoplo to
be brought together again?"
"I have no power to Interfere," ho
said sadly. "Kitten is no child. I can
only do as sho tells me to do,"
Now to Felicia, It seemed that Kitten
was not only a child, but also an ex
ceedingly foolish one; but knowing Roy's
Infatuation, she forebore to express her
"Do you think of the husband, poor
Mr. Desmond? It Is dreadful for him."
But Roy could not be brought to pity
Brian. The man who had dared to win
the deep love of Kitten's soul, and to
giro hor back nothing but the empty
husks of his life, was to him. au object
not of compassion, but of abhorrence.
"What is ho doing Is ho looking for
her?" was all ho said gloomily, after a
."No, he seems stunned, I hear, you
know, bocauso bocauso Mr. Ralkcs, his
cousin, Is with him."
Felicia spoko of Edgar Ralkcs with a
llttlo telltalo confusion of manner, which
Roy was far too much absorbed In his
own troubles to observe.
"Ralkcs!" ho said sharply. "Surely
that Is his agent, who lives at Kepplng
ton? Is ho In town, then?"
It had been Roy's secret hopo that
this gentleman might rocognlzo Kitten,
and bo the means of restoring her to her
"Yes, ho went to Lowndes Square at
once, and has been thero over slnco,"
answered Felicia, who thought her hero
a very prlnco among men for this act of
charity. "Mr. Desmond has kopt him."
"He Is going back to Kepplngton, I
supposo?" inquired Roy eagerly.
"No I don't think ho Is. Mr. Ralkei
ran In this morning, knowing I should
bo anxious," ndded Felicia, coloring a
little, "to tell mo that Hrlan Desmond
has asked him to go abroad with him
"To go abroad!" cried Roy, aghast.
"Do you mean to tell me that ho is go
ing to make a search for his wife? That
ho Is content to give her up without an
effort? To leave her without even know
ing what has become of her, or whether
she lrns got enough to live upon? Good
heavens, the man cannot bo such a brute
"Mr. Raikes certnlnly told me ho was
going abroad at once. I know nothing
"Felicia!" he cried, "it cannot be. Do
you think that ho her husband bo
lieves In this wicked slander against her,
which Mrs. Talbot and venomous women
of her description havo set afloat?"
"No, no. I hopo and trust he has not
heard of It," she answered eagerly. "I
do not think ho has yet. But at any mo
ment It might get to his ears. Oh, Roy,
if only It could be stopped!"
And that was what Roy, too, said,
over and over again to himself, as ho
went slowly back to his sister's house.
"If It only could bo stopped!"
But how can tho voice of scandal be
stopped? It is often hard to make peo
ple believe in an absoluto truth, but to
believe in a lie, that seems to como easily
to everybody; and once fairly started on
its way, a lie is as hard to stop as is
that magic fiddler of German fairy lore,
who has been dancing his way over the
world ever since the Middle Ages.
He was very depressed and unhappy,
a she flung himself wearily into a deep
armchair in Miss Grantley's drawing
room. Margaret was adding up her
"Well, it is as you said," he answer
ed gloomily. "You were right and I
was wrong. It is not, I suppose, for the
first time in our lives that I have been
forced to acknowledge as much."
"Thero is, of course, one thing you
could do, Roy, which would effectually
stop this uncomfortable scandal at once
"I wish to goodness you would say
what It Is, then," he answerpd. "God
knows, I would do anything."
"If you were to give out at once that
you were engaged to be married to soma
girl, everybody would perceive Instantly
the impossibility of there being any truth
in tho reports which have coupled your
name with Mrs. Desmond's."
"Engaged to be married!" ho cried,
contemptuously; "how can that be done,
pray? What utter nohsensel To be en
gaged, I musfask some woman to marry
me. How can I go out and do that at
a moment's notice? If that is your plan,
"Thero is always Felicia," said Miss
Grantley, quietly, without venturing to
look at bim.
Roy did not answer, and Margaret con
tinued, after a pause; "Felicia would
marry you to-morrow; there is no prelim
inary lovemaking to bo gone through
with her. Uncle Gregory is so sick of
London and parental cares that ho will
bestow her gladly upon the first comer,
and you above all others. Felicia her
self Is fond of you "
Here Roy rose violently from ills chair,
and with anexclamation of angry impa
tience went out of the room, slamming
the door after him.
(To uu continued.)
He rode first class.
Cost More, but lie Didn't Iluve to PiihIi
A gentlemnn who recently returned
from n far Western trip told this story
the other day of a stage coach ride
which ho had in the Rocky Moun
tains. "I wanted to go to a mining camp
which was ten miles from the nearest
railroad station, and tho only way to
get there was either to walk or go by
"When I reached the coach the driv
er wanted to know how I wished to
travel first, second, or third class. I
thought tills question peculiar, as I did
not see three coaches, but one. How
ever, I deckled to go first class, and
the driver replied the fare would bo
$2. Shortly ufter I hnd taken my seat
another man came up to the coach,
and, after talking with tho driver, de
cided to go second class, nt $1. Ho
entered tho coaeii and sat directly op
posite me. Presently a rather tough
looking fellow, resembling n tramp,
also entered the coach and sat down
beside me. IIe said he would travel
third chiBS, and his fare was only 50
"After wo were on our Journey a lit
tle way I begnn to wonder In what
consisted the difference of accommoda
tions and why thero should bo three
classes when we nil shared tho samo
coach. My Ignorance on this point was
enlightened when we finally cume to a
long hill. Tho driver stopped his
horses, nnd, turning around in his seat,
cried In n high volco: 'First-class pas
sengers, keep their seats; second-class
passengers, get out und walk, aud,
third-class passengers, get out ami
push!' I was glad I was traveling first
class." Baltlmoro Sun.

Considerable argument Is rife
among writers as to the relative value
of small and medium or large tubers,
for uso ns seed. It Is claimed that
the small tuber will often (generally,
perhaps) produce as large and fine re
sults as the larger tubers used for
seed. We believe tills claim Is open
to question nt least beyond the first
generation, for it Is safe to say that
degeneration can only be the result
from planting the small tubers- a num
ber of seasons in succession. This
seems to be a logical conclusion to
reach. On tho other hand, It Is quite
as logical to assume that the fine me
dium or large tuber, containing ns it
must all the vigor and lino points of
tho variety, will produco first-class
progeny nnd, we believe, this is es
sentialiy the cuse when tho seed tu

results as those which have been prop

In a three-year test of growing pota

recommends the use of a moderate
