care and precision to go aud tell her so.
"I should have told her mouths ago,'
he mentally argued. "She must tuluk
I'm an awful duffer," aud he woudcred

there waa a thump at hla door and bis

Fred was also dressed with care and

his feelings was dropping. He wonder

there tonight for. Couldn't he see when
be wasn't wanted? The last time Kate
bad been not much more than civil.
He finally tamed from the glass aud
wriggled Into hla coat with a flushed
face. "WeM, come on!" he sal

Phil grew sick at heart, and Katt

Kate met him at the door and ush

great lire waa burning on the hearth
It was warm and pleasant after the
walk In the frosty air, and be settled

with a sigh of relief. Kate explained
nervously that her father was out of
town and then seemed to wait fot
something. Phil cleared hia throat
"Kate," he began and wondered Just
what be should say next Why was it
co bard when a fellow bad thought of
nothing else for weeks?
"Yea?" aald Kate encouragingly, and
then the front door slammed and In a
moment more the judge entered the li
brary. He greeted the young man cor
dially, sat down on the opposite side
of the hearth and began to talk poli

to see what was the matter. She had

Curious Old Lond of tht Spot Mark

Aa a person outer ltostun liarlw by
the mr.lu ship channel, having threaded
hla way between Lovell's Island nud
(Sallnp's Islaud, and Just before pass

laud, he sees t bis left a unique nionu
ment marking a dangerous ledge and
shoal. So ixvullar Is Its appearance
that every stranger Is sure to nsk.
"What Is that?" To this some local
wiseacre promptly responds, ".Nix's
Mate," but usually be cannot explain
Its meaning or oven spell tho name cor
rectly. The "Mate" Is a massive piece of
copper riveted masonry, forty feet
square and twelve feet high, with
stairs on one side, upon whose top
rises a black wooden pyramid twenty
feet high. Two hundred years ago
where this weird pyramid uow stands
there was a fertile Island of twelve
acres, furnishing excellent grnslng and
called lu consequence Oreen Island.
So much Is history. A curious old
book, long out of print, bag woven the
legend of the name Into pleasing ro
mance, which In brief Is ns follows:
Wheu Sir William I'hlps made his
celebrated expedition to the Spanish
main In ltiST under the auspices of the
Duke of Albemarle, In which be recov
ered some millions of sunken gold and
enriched himself for life, he was ac
companied by one Captain Nix aud
his first mate. Kdward I'lUvassal. As
the first expedition was so wonderfully
successful. Captain Nix went out on
another search and raised nuother pre
cious cargo from the bottom of the
deep. But on his return the crew of

June 1, lf.v.). They contrived to reach
Boston Town, and there they found
the Dolphin and Fltxvassal. too. who
had assumed the name of Captain Nix
Fltxvassal was tried for piracy, con
vleted and scflteiu td to be executed on
Oreen Island on June 5. But for some
service which he bad rendered to the
colony while hearing his assumed name
he waa pardoned by the governor,
Bradstreet. Before tho news of the
pardon reached him, however, he took
a fatal dose of poison.
He was burled on Green Island, and
his sole mourner was an Indian maid
and slbvl who had loved blm. She
prophesied that the Island would wash
away, aud her prediction was fulfilled.

rock Into the sea. and now nothing re

Toast to Laughter.
Here's to laughter, the sunshine of
the soul, the happiness of the heart,
the leaven of youth, the privilege of
purity, the echo of Innocence, the treas
ure of the humble, the wealth of the
poor, the head of the enp of pleasure.
It dispels dejection, banishes blues ami
mangles melancholy, for it's the foe
of woe, the destroyer of depression,
the enemy of grief. It is wbut kings
envy the ea.sunts. plutocrats envy the
poor, the guilty envy the Innocent. It's
the sheen on the silver of smiles, the
ripple on the water's delight, the glint
of the gold of gladness. Without It hu
mor would be dumb, wit would wither,
dimples would disappear and smile-i
would shrivel, for it's the glow of a clean
conscience, the voice of pure soul,
the birth cry of mirlli, the swan song
of sndn.ws. Lift-.
