MARGARET'S LOVER. 1

must have felt when you won
that $100 prize In your first story
competition. I wonder what you did
with all that sudden wealth."
"I have never yet told any one what
I first did with the money, Margaret,"
replied Mrs. Morris, "but It can do no
harm to tell the story now. It all hap
pened ten years ago.
"As 1 was on my way home with the
two crisp $50 bills in my pocket, I met
a young man who had been one of my
pupils two or three years before. He
was quite a favorite of mine, and I
had known his people for many years.
On this day be turned and walked with
me, and I soon guessed that be was In
some deep trouble. After a while I
won the story from him. He had been
speculating In stocks and had 'bor
rowed,' unknown to his employes, a
hundred dollars of the firm's money.
He had lost, and in despair at being
unable to refund the money, had
forged his uncle's name to a check,
which, however, he had not yet found
courage to present for payment
"Well, the end of it was that the crisp
$50 bills In my possession changed
bands, the forged check was destroyed,
and Charlie left me, with broken words
of thanks and a few earnest promises
for the future."
"Did he ever repay you the money,
"Yes, he paid it all back in a few
months. I believe be has always lived
an honest, upright life since, and I have
never regretted the first investment of
my prize money."
A short time later as Margaret Rlm
mer was on her way borne, she heard
a deep, manly voice say, "Good after
noon. Miss Margaret," and Professor
Hay fell into step by her side.
"I have Just been calling on my Aunt
Prudence," said Margaret, as they
walked on slowly. "I have spent a de
lightful afternoon reading some of her
old stories. You know she won a hundred-dollar
prize once with one of her
"Yes, I remember," said the profes
sor, somewhat absently, looking down
as be spoke at a few fluffy curls that
escaped from beneath the brim of his
companion's bat "I remember that I
met your aunt on that day that she
received the prize, and she allowed me
to walk part of the way borne with her.
Yon know she was my teacher in the
old high school."
"No, I did not know it," replied Mar
garet slowly, with a shock of surprise.
To herself she was repeating with a
sick heart, "This is the end of auntie's
story; his name is Charles Hay, and
it was be who walked home with
auntie that day. He must never know
that I know." She forced herself to
take some part In the conversation, try
ing to put aside for the time the
thought of what this knowledge must
mean to her, that she could never again
look up to him with the old respect
that the sweet fancies that had of late
begun to come to her, of a dearer
friendship between them, must be reso-
be just the same again.
When, a few days later, Mr. Hay
called on Margaret, and In a few man
ly words told her of bis love, Margaret
gently, but decidedly, refused bis offer.
She would give him no reason, except
that it could never be. No, she cared
for no one else but It could never be.
So the professor went sadly away, and
Margaret, with pale face and eyes dim
with unshed tears, sought her room.
For hours that night Margaret Rlm
mer lay awake and wrestled with the
problem was It fair to condemn the
man of 30, honest respected, who had
won bis place in the world, for the
folly and sin of ten years ago? Had
he not nobly redeemed the past? But
still, bow could she respect him as she
might If she bad never heard that
wretched story? A forger, a thief.
No, she could never trust her life's hap
piness to one whom she could not rev
erence as nobler, greater, than herself.
Margaret was calling on her aunt a
few days later, when Mrs. Morris re
marked: "By the way, yon remember
the story I told you about the young
man whom I helped out of trouble with
my prize money?"
"Yes," said Margaret faintly, won
dering what was to come.
"He called on me yesterday, and
brought me a photograph of his two
"His children!" exclaimed Margaret
"Yes, he Is married, and has a lovely
wife and a pretty little home."
Margaret listened as if In a dream.
"Then then It was not Mr. Hay?" she
"Mr. Hay! No. Indeed. Charles
Hay Is the soul of honor. Why, what
in the world made you connect him
with this story?"
He he said he walked home with
you on the day you received the prize
money. And he said be was one of
your old pupils "
Mrs Morris looked puzzled. "I may
have met him that afternoon, and be
may have walked part of the way home
with me, but why, Margaret!"
For the girl had thrown herself down
beside her aunt and, with her face hid
den in the folds of Mrs. Morris' gown.
was half sobbing and half weeping.
The older woman patted the girl's
bowed bead, while her face lit up with
a sudden understanding.
The next time Margaret met the pro
fessor she smiled on him so sweetly
that the poor man was bewildered.
They met frequently, and at Mar
garet's request the professor resumed
his calls. At last he ventured once
more to tell her of his love, and this
time her reply must have been a favor
able one, for when the professor left,
some time later, be walked as oce who
had received a crown. And so, per-

be an Immense increase In the number
of balloons, with duly trained staffs to
work them, carried by war vessels.
The balloons carried by these battle
ships are of exactly the same material
and pattern as those In use in the
army, only smaller. They have a use
far in advance of any mere long-distance
observational purpose, for, though
the wake of a submarine boat sunk
deeply in the water can only be traced
with difficulty from such an elevation
as that afforded by a ship, both such
wake and the boat Itself can be seen
with absolute and undeviating clear
ness from a captive balloon. This Is
tbe result of a scientific and optical
law, and when ship balloons were first
put to the practical test In regard to
this matter, the results attained were
of the most surprising kind.
Even where the water Is distinctly
cloudy, objects of a much smaller kind
than a submarine boat and painted of
neutral color, could be seen from a bal
loon with the utmost clearness at a
depth of five fathoms, or thirty feet
though the surface was rough. No sub
marine boat could in the daytime get

RALEIGH'S LOST COLONY.
North Carolina Community Which Con
tains Some Novel Character.
Representative Bellamy of North
Carolina has some curious constituents.
They are the descendants of the lost
colony of Sir Walter Raleigh.
It was In 1587, over three centuries
ago, that Raleigh sent over a colony of
117 persons. Including seventeen wom
en, and landed them on Roanoke lsl
and, near Hatteras. Thirteen years
later he sent over to find out how they
were prospering. Roanoke Island was
then deserted and no trace of the
whereabouts of the settlers was to be
discovered, except tbe single wo.d
"Croatan" cut in a tree. To-day the
Croatan Indians, who live in three or
four counties of North Carolina, have
blue eyes, although possessing other
characteristics of the Indians the cop
per color, the high cheek bone and the
erect form. Many of them bear names
that are English, such as Sampson,
Berry, Wilkinson, etc., and which have
been In the tribe for generations. They
have traditions that their ancestors
could read from books and in a score
of other ways offer circumstantial evi
dence that they have descended from
Mr. Bellamy thinks that Congress
ought to pay more attention to these
people. "They are brave, but reck
less," be says. "They are honest. In
tensely religious, restless, active and
energetic. Indolence and sloth are not
known among them. They are eager
for education. They are capable of in
tellectual and moral development. A
number of them have become success
ful merchants. One of them became a
United States Senator from a Southern
State and the descendant of another
has become a member of Congress."
Joking Under Difficulties.
"The revenue cutters of the United
States, as you may know," said an offi
cer of one of them, who likes his little
Joke, "confine their services, which are
really invaluable to tbe government to
the coast, and It Is a rare thing Indeed
for any one of them, except those of
the Bering Sea patrol, to venture any
distance out to sea. Nor Is this rule
an unsatisfactory one, for, say what
you please about it sea service Is not as
pleasant as the nevelists and other ro
mancers would have you- believe. In
deed, the sailor who prefers the bound
lng billows, a wet sheet and a flowing
sea and all the rest of It to a calm and
peaceful shore snap Is the exception.
But I am getting off of my story, which
applies to the cutter Grant, when she
was doing duty In New York bay and
vicinity. Something had happened to
call her out down the shore somewhere,
and she left the bay one afternoon, and
early the next morning, while she was
bowling along at about seven knots an
hour, she hailed a big four-master.
" 'What ship is that?' came the cry
from the Grant
" 'The Royal Bengal Tiger, 243 days
out from Calcutta,' came the reply.
'What ship is that?
" 'Revenue cutter Grant' was the
plaintive answer, 'and we've been out
all night' "Washington Star.
New Wood for Railroad Ties.
A new and thoroughly suitable wood
for railroad ties has been found in the
forests in the northern part of tbe Ar
gentine Republic. It is the red cue
bracho. It is an exceedingly hard wood
and In Its Interior, not alone In the
bark, Is 15 to 20 per cent of tannin,
which keeps the wood from rotting, no
matter In what substance it is buried.
The wood has been used in Europe
for tanning, but outside of the Argen
tine Republic Its utility to railroads. It
seems, Is yet to be discovered and ap
preciated. Posts made of this wood
which have been buried fifty years in
land furrowed and gullied by the tor
rential rains of summer have been
found to be in as good condition as If
they had been felled recently. In the
Argentine Republic ballasts for rail
road beds Is unknown, and the ties
are laid in the ground, which frequent
ly Is sandy and exposed to heavy rains
and dried by Intense heat So iron cross
ties were used until It was found that
the red cuebracho was undeniably the
best wood that could be used for the
purpose. It not only is so hard a wood
that it has to be bored before spikes
and bolts can be driven into It but It
is unusually heavy. It does not split
or become compressed with blows.

TOO MUCH INTRODUCING,
What an Englishman Has to Say Abont
"It took me some time to grasp the
American point of 'view in regard to
letters of Introduction," said an En
glish traveler, chatting over American
characteristics, "When we give a man
a letter of Introduction at home, we
consider that we are vouching for him
socially, financially and every other
way, so, needless to say, It is never
done except among relatives or the
closest friends. Here you don't seem
to take the thing seriously. When I
was in Washington last week I was in
troduced to a very pleasant gentleman
In tbe real estate business, and chanced
to mention that I was going to Nash
ville next day. 'Oh, Indeed!' he said,
'then I'll just give you a line to an old
chum of mine there,' and immediately
he took out a pad of paper and began
writing. 'By the way,' he remarked,
after jotting down a few words, 'I
didn't even know my, name struck me
is the proper spelling?' The Idea of a
stranger giving me a letter of introduc
tion to an intimate friend when he
didn't eve nknow my name struck me
as very strange and amusing. How
ever, I took it with thanks, and later
found the Nashville man a very charm
ing fellow. When I left he Insisted on
giving me a note to a friend in Mem
phis, who proved equally charming,
and who, In turn, supplied me with an
introduction to a prominent clubman
here in New Orleans.
"The last letter I haven't presented.
and don't intend to, because It contains
a glaring, though inadvertent misstate
ment In referring to me as an old and
cherished friend of the good-natured
gentlemen of Nashville and Washing
ton. The process, as you see, has built
me up an entirely fictitious character,
and 'pon my word, I can't understand
why such friendliness Is npt continual
ly and outrageously abused by impos
tors. I'm sure It would be on our side
of the water." Baltimore News.
Why He Got It.
There Is a sentiment common to the
most of mankind which makes one's
own home and neighbors the best there
are In the world, and even a stranger
who hails from tbe home town the most
welcome friend to be met away from
there. Nevertheless, such an illustra
tion of it as the following, told by Gen.
8ir Redvers Buller, is rare:
The story was told the Rev. S. Bar
Ing-Gould by Gen. Buller himself, and
Is narrated In the author's words as far
Sir Redvers was on his way, with a
regiment of soldiers, to Canada. Off
the entrance of the St. Lawrence the
vessel was enveloped in fogs and de
layed so that provisions ran short. Now
there was a station on an Islet with
supplies for shipwrecked mariners, so
Sir Redvers went ashore in a "boat, to
visit the store and ask for assistance.
When he applied he found a woman
only in charge.
"No," said she, "the supplies are for
those who are shipwrecked not for
such as you."
"But this Is a Government depot, and
we are servants of the crown."
"Can't help tt; you're not shipwreck
ed." There was a very recognizable Into
nation in the woman's voice. Sir Red
vers at once assumed the Cornish ac
cent, and said: "What not for dear
old One and All, and I a Buller?"
"What from Cornwall, and a Buler?
Take everything there Is In the place;
you're heartily welcome!"
Origin of Rod and Line.
Obviously the answer to the conun
drum, "Who discovered rod-fishing in
the sea?" is the first man who found
he could not dangle effectively a hand
line over the edge of some precipitous
shore, with rocks projecting at the
foot Later, when this noble savage
began to burn out trees to make boats.
the fisherman of the period doubtless
boomed out a line on each side of the
craft of the period so as to enable him
to work four lines.
Go to the wildest portions of these
Islands and we find' the same practices
continued. In the far north, little
barelegged Highlanders sit on ste?p
rocks bobbing for cuddles, rod In hand,

thing may have been seen any summer

the marriage service is an anachronism

My Dear Carlton: I know it will
please yon to learn that my homeward
journey from San Francisco was more
than pleasant. One striking feature
that added very much to my comfort
was the dining car service on the Rio

this description I have ever seen any
where, either in this country or abroad;
the food and cooking was all that could
be desired, and at very moderate prices.
If you happen to know the Rio Grande

to them that it will afford me the
greatest pleasure at all times to bear
testimony anywhere to the above facts.
Very truly yours,

name. Collier's Weekly.
