He was singing alone now, and uu

The Inst notes swelled into silence.
Hut b woman's cry of terror rang out
above .the applause, Kallkal bad fallen
forward on his face, and there was a

the golden haired girl heard a voice
say: "That's tho way all the poor fel

on eagerly: "Wo must go to blm. Wo
may be able to do something for him.
No, no! We won't wait Wc must go
nt once, or we mny be too late."
She always bad been a spoiled child,
and so at last they yielded to her wish.
And that Is why when Kallkal woke
as from a troubled sleep and murmur
ed "AJIee!" her face bent over him,
She pressed a glass to bis lips ns she
aid, with n tremulous smile, "Drink."
JIo did not question her presence. ,U
lay back and looked at her, nnd ngata
swift color flashed Into her check.
Yet even as lie looked shadow fell
across bit face, for she bod changed
woefully. It was no longer the girl
who hud teased and played with, him
Inn n tvomnn whose beauty had some-
! how hardened In the ripening. There
I were slmdows under the eyes nnd hit'
ter curves around the mouth that line
been absent In his dream pictures. Un
conseloiisly lie sighed nnd closed his
eyes. The meeting so long prayed for
brought mure sadness thnn Joy. Lying
there, he did not see her face sorten ot
her eyes shine with tender feeling.
With nn Impetuous movement she bent
over mid pressed her lips ngnlust a lock
of the dark hair Hint lay ngnlust ttit

face was dyed scarlet with blushes,
which faded us her glance fell on a
ring on her linger.
She was silent, her hnnda pressed
When at last he opened his eyes mid

her linger motioned him not to f'ak.
Her voice wns low, but steady, us she
This Is u strange meeting, my
friend, after many days, and we have
tmtli changed. I have learned many
tilings since we parted. I am married."
He started, hut she went on hurriedly:
"My husband Is not here tonight. He
seldom is. He is too much nbsorbed in
business. American husbands often
nn that way. Hut I am happy, quite
happy. My father and mother live
with ns. and you know how dear they
are to inc. I it in n very fortunate wo
man, lint you you have changed' too.
Oh, why did, you ever leave your lovely
Ills eyes told her the reason, hut slie
gnve no sign that she could read them.
"You were always happy there. I
was happy. Every one was happy,
ltut It Is not too late for you. You can
go back. Promise me that you will go
back, and the warm sunshine will
make you strong iigalu. mid you will
forget tills country of cold nnd mist."
He enuld not see the storm raging be
neath her forced composure. He did
not guess why she spoke almost curtly,
lie only thought that she had grown

tered. So he went back to Hawaii and the
dark eyed girl who was waiting for
him. With her he lenrned to forget

his father to be established tit the
neighboring town of Eire. Less thnn
a century before Charlemagne had

jection and Christianity was yet new
In the laud. Guutber, the llrst bishop,
had been canon at the cathedral at
Itciuis. Three years nfter his elevation
to tho new episcopal see he consecrated
the llrst chapel, naming it In honor of
the Virgin Mary. The chape! is sup
posed to have occupied the site under
the present cathedral, where the crypt
of the new church Is built.
A pretty rosebush that now clings to
the outer wall of the cathedral choir
Is said by tradition to have grown
there since the days of Louis the Pious
himself, lu the twelfth century, when
the choir nnd crypt were being enlarg
ed, a protecting hollow wull was built
around the rosebush In order that the
vine might continue to grow about the
building when the new wall had heeu
completed. A bit of the old iirclilug
may be seen behind the altar in the
crypt. This is the present voucher for
the great age of the rosebush, mid It
must be admitted that many traditions1
reMjve upon a less solid foundation.

The ltev. W. W. Mc.Murrny once ac
companied me on a speechniaklng trip
to Shelbyvllle. Mo. Iteturnlng. he said:
"The Immense nuilience you had to

an exceedingly brilliant lawyer, wore
trying u small case on opposite sides in
the court of a Justice of the ience.
When Green came to make his argu

Governor Stone's First Lawsuit.
Lawyers are great hands to Indulge
In reminiscences. Nearly till of them
like to tell about their flrst lawsuit, for
usually even the greatest of them be
gnu In a very small way. Governor
Wllllnm J. Stone gives tbe following
account of his first lawsuit:
"As I recnll It now, my first lawsuit
Involved the intiuldccut sum of 00
cents. The plaintiff had done certain
work for tbe defendant, for which bo
rendered a bill of $2.60. Tho defend
ant considering tho cbnrgo exorbitant,
refused to pay. Ho wns willing to pay
$1.50. and during the negotiations, by
way of compromise, he proposed to pay
tbe plaintiff $2. When this proposition
was carried to tho plaintiff, ho rejected
It with scorn and Instituted n suit bo
fore a justice of the iieacc. At first
neither party had an attorney. Kacb
attended to hit own case. They bnd
fifty witnesses subpoenaed between
them. Tho greater number of tho wit
nesses were used to prove tho value of
tbe services. The plaintiff won on the
jury trlul, and tho defendant appealed.
After tho trial I was employed by the
plaintiff. Ily this time tbo nccumnlat
cd costs made the ense of much greater
linportanco to tho parties. Tim origi
nal dlffcreute of 60 cents wns lost sight
ot :n view of the large bill of costs nc
trued, now nmouutlng to $70 or $80.
On the trial we mude It appear Hint no
actual tender of any sum hnd been
made to tbo 'plaintiff, nnd so I felt prot
ty sure or the-costs, no matter what
amount the Jury gnve us. However,
the Jury returned n verdict for the full
nmou claimed. The costs In the cok
exceeded 100. Tho controversy of
course was absurd to tho point of Idio
cy, hut It gnve me a case, $1B In money
nnd a world of glory. Thenceforth,
like Alexander, I was looking for other
worlds to conquer."
A Question of Jurisdiction.
For mauy years the Judge of the
Marlon Halls-Monroe-Shelby circuit
was Hon. Thomas II. Uncoil of Hmiiii.

change of tense, there would be almost
literal truth In rttK-Oi-eene llalleek's

With nil due respect to Mr. Hardin, I
am willing to give It us my opinion
that he can be (lie most aggravating

Great patience has never been ranked

hotly was lu it wretched luiniur. It de
generated Into n fierce slugging mutch
among the lawyers. Hardin nud I fell
rifoul. of each other repeatedly. To
make matters worse, we were trying
the enso in u church, within whose
walls we all ought to bnvo been oa our
gooil behavior, but we were not by a J
long shot. At lust Judge llaeoii, who
was a great stickler for good order,
grew weary with our ceaseless and un
seemly wrangling. After nn unusually
violent altercation between Hardin and
myndf tlie Judge straightened back in
bis clinli- and In the blandest manner
said, "I do not undertake tr prescribe 1
rules of etiquette for attorneys from
outside of this circuit, but I feel con
strained to say that the attorneys of i
my circuit do not behave as Messrs.
Hardin nud Clark lire now doing" It ,
was ii withering rebuke, inure si, per- i
baps by reason of the kind tone In
which It wns delivered. Hardin and I
did nut have another row that day
The Juror Was Excused.
In the Shelby ease already mention
ed there nppearod among the proposed
Jlirnin u son of tbe Confederate hero
General Martin H. Green, deceased.
Mr. Julius H. Green. Ou Inquiry Mr
Green minoniieed tbnt ho bud already I
formed an opinion ns to the alleged i
guilt or Innocence of the prisoner
Further interrogation disclosed that i
said opinion was derived fiom att in j
spertlon of the defendant's eolinle
liaiiee. Dclenduiit'H counsel responded I
with u volley of objections. The court
asked the Juror If bo had read Luvater
The juror answered that he had. The
fact Is that I.avater's work has little or
no value In physiognomical research,
hut a certain prestige nttunds the name
of the author. The court ruled that If
eleven uiorii Jurors of this tyjie could
be secured tlte evidence would be dis
pensed with, but lu default of such a
panel Mr. Urtrn would bu excused.
Brought Him to Terms.
In u divorce case between parties of
advanced years it npiiearotl tbut the
couplu had started In poverty. In con
junction with bis farm the husband, a
frugal German, bad conducted a (lot
tery which had an elevated site, lu her
earlier married life tho wife, by up and

tbo wolf away nnd amassed for tbe
buBhuud a handsome competence. Still
the wife's only means of travel depend
ed on casual trips of tbe farm wagon.
Once when tho team wns bitched the
old lady prepared for transportation
of herself jind some housekeeping prod
ucts, tho sale of which wns her sole re
liance for pin money. When the old
mnn saw thnt his good wife Intended
passage, he ordered tbe team unhitch
ed and tho errand abnudoned. The
court ruled that this was the equiva
lent of tho most refined piece of mari
tal cruelty over heard of. Although the
old potter strenuously denied ninklng
any family Jars, bis wife was on allied
grounds decreed n divorce and half the
estate, The, result was a compromise
Judge ltucon Is one uf the most agree

I ever met nud Indulges frocly lu bon
