Everybody knew Miss Jessie Kap
per for a person of the highest prin
ciples; what was not so well known
was that her thrift, which was alike
hereditary and habitual, forbade use
of the principles for every day. She
spoke eloquently of the larger vision,
world humanity, harmouy with cosmic
law, above all, the crying need of
the uplift. She was, further, more
than generous of her time and her
breath for all manner of causes that
might serve as pedestals. Notwith
standing, there were chuckles from
the unregenerate mass over the wash
erwoman's verdict : "Hit ain't only
that she wants to be bell-wether or no
sheep somebody else must pay for
the bell."
She looked exceedingly well to the
ways of the household her mother
was an invalid, her father away half
the time in congress. That gave her
added prestige. If she didn't go to
Washington with the general. Her
mother was excuse quite sufficient
and daughterly devotion was thus an
added asset. She paid cash for every
thing save her subscription to church
and charity for them she set Spurt
the increment of her small economies.
She loathed extravagance espe
cially the Carroll Benton sort. Car
roll also kept house for a rather help
less family a pretty, frightened, In
capable mother, and a scientific fa
ther, who lost himself In his work.
Luckily they had a fixed Income a
fairish one but Carroll wore clothes
It pained Mrs. Grundy to see, admit
tedly because she could not afford bet
ter. Yet she bought the best of every
thing In market not always the cost
liest rarities, but the best of its sort.
She kept a maid for her mother, and
a man-cook, who also looked after the
lawn and the laboratory both, at
wages that seemed fabulous to Allyn
town, the while doing her own sewing,
and even making over her hats. She
had little parties, too very simple
cake and Ice cream or tea and snnd
wlches In cherry or strawberry time
the fruit serving In place of sweets.
There was dancing, too, on the piazza
or the grass, to the phonograph that
was Mamma Beaton's consolation.
New records for It, costly ones at that,
further Jarred Miss Kapper's amiabil
ity. So badly, indeed, she said out
right to her gossip, Miss Susan Fife:
"If ever anybody needed a guardian it
Is Carroll Beaton unless she gets
one of some sort, she'll die on the)
"She can get a mighty fine one, any
minute she'll say 'yes,' " Susan re
turned smiling slyly.
Miss Kapper bridled, saying acidly:
"You don't really believe John Hunt
ly has serious intentions? I know he
goes there right along but It's to see
the professor, same as It hns always
been "
"Maybe he's saltin' the old cow for
the calf but I have my doubts,"
from the gossip. Miss Kapper opened
bar Hps to speak, but shut them with
s snap of the jaws on what she had
meant SD say, running on after a min
ute to Bier fall clothes which meant
making some few new ones and mak
ing over many that had seen service.
Dyed, re-ut and refurnished they
would look new and wear just as well
and sock s saving! Jennie Brltt,
the 1 1 (He old maid dressmaker,
charged so moderately even Carroll
Beaton could afford her if only she
would. And so obliging always ready
to turn, and contrive, make the most
of every fcersB) of lace or trimming
and never send In a bill till the end
of the quarter. Jennie was an Institu
tion, said Miss Kapper, and "John
Huntly'U agros to that," said Miss
Susan. "He goes there every little
while to bear her toll about his moth
er they were little girls together, and
went to the same school. She gave
him his first case when he started
law-practice I shall always say she'd
never a-gone and sued the Prices on
that last land note If she hadn't want
ed to show folk what John COUld do."
The land money safe In a 7 per
cent mortgage, Jenny Hrltt felt she
could let it ride, a sure provision for
age or Illness, meanwhile earning n
trifle more than she spent to live If
she did work so cheap. She had rooms
downtown two, shabby but clean al
ways and rather cheery by lamp light.
John Uuntly found them so upon g
rainy October evening, whose early
luck had Bomehow made him lose
relish for work. Aunt Jennie would
brHce Bin up she was so birdlike, al
ways cheery, no matter where the
wind sat. She would give him ten,
Just the sort he liked not too strong
clear and very hot, with rose leaves
she had candled herself, flouting In It,
dark blurs against her single- eggshell
cup. They were In the kitchen brew
Ing It when there CUBS a merry rata
plan upon the outer door
Miss Jennie smiled to hear It. "Sit
still here und don't jpa peep," she
adjured her first visitor over her shoul
der as she vanished, leaving the door
Next minute he heard Carroll sav
ing gayly: "Ah, ha. Keeping Blind
Jack's holiday, Miss Jen ! Don't blame
you rain always mukes me lazier
than usual. So I had to rush out In It
to bring you these Just a few late
peaches, and some pears not yet mel
low. Mother said you must have some
the minute she saw them. No can't
sit down company coming to supper
onIgnt glve-Nd&aeft-. my- basket IT
want to fill It for somebody else."
Word rushed on word Huntly
could picture the speaker's vivid face.
He had known her all his life. He
had never dared tell her his hopes
and fears. Possibly because having
still his way tq.make, he had felt her
beyond his reach. Miss Kavper, of
whom he saw a good deal, both In
business and socially, was perhaps to
blame for the feeling. He liked her
COMA ally she was so sensible, like
wise so kindly always Interested In
his prospects,- and overflowing with
woman-sympathy for cases of need.
She had shed the balm of her sym
pathy even upon Carroll such a pity,
the dear, brilliant girl was hampered
as she was no chance to train herself
for a career what would become of
her when her mother died, and the an
nuity with her. Miss Kapper could not
guess, unless Carroll were wise and
lucky enough to make a good mar
riage. All this was nebulously at the bnck
of Huntly's mind, when he heard Aunt
Jen, saying briskly : "You've got a
new frock, child never mind Mow I
know so you bring it here tomorrow.
I'll make It In time for the Aliens'
party if I have to sew Sundays."
"Get thee behind me, Britt you
know I can't afford It," Carroll Inter
rupted. "There'll be nothin' to pay I'd love
to do it good as you are to me," from
Miss Jennie.
"Bless your heart, I can't afford
that any more than the other thing,
you angel-spiirrow I" from Carroll.
"One reason I've never come to you
for work was It hurts me to see you
get so little you cheat yourself in
every stitch you set."
With that she rushed away, heed
less of Aunt Jen's protests. But that
lady was scarcely settled to tea cups
before another knock, solid, precise
but Imperative, Half a minute later
Miss Kapper was saying softly : "You
put In that lining so beautifully, Miss
Blitt. I've brought another Job of the
same sort. And I shall tell everybody
how reasonable you are. Why, the
tailor asked eight dollars to rellne
the coat and you did It for three.
Now, If you'll put the oid lining It
Is perfectly good except t the neck,
and there's plenty of It, In this other
coat, I'll be quite willing to pay you
the same price."
"You ought to be!" Miss Brltt said
firmly. "But I don't put In old
linings they never fit. If you're In a
hurry I've some stuff would answer "
"Not for my purpose," from Miss
Kapper freezlngly. "You may like to
practice extortion I'll be no party to
it. Either you use the old material
or I'll take the work to somebody
"Good rlddnnce !" Miss Brltt ejacu
lated. A half minute later the door
slammed hard.
At the sound Huntly came from the
kitchen snylng with an angry laugh :
"Aunt Jen my coming tonight was
purely providential "
"I reckoned so myself," from Aunt
Jen. "Gave you n chance to see the
difference. I've been scared you'd
marry that smooth-tongued skinflint ;
now, you let her slide and do your
best to make a match with Carroll."
"Just what I shall try to do with
your good help," Huntly answered,
giving her a hearty hug.

The Great American
Man Falls In Hot Pool.
Klamath Falls, Or. Patrick
gan, 50-year-old conductor on a log
ging railway, suffered serious bums
when he fell into the "Devil's Punch
Howl," a deep spring of boiling water
In Hot Springs addition. He was taken
to a local hospital, where little hope
was held for his recovery.
Hardigan fell into the spring to his
hips, but also sustained burns on the
arms and back. He managed to climb
out and crawl nearly half a mile
down the Southern Pacific track,
where he was found by a watchman.
One death and several Injuries have
resulted previously to persons falling
into the boiling spring.
Experiments Have Been Made to
Show the Time Taken for Vari
ous Scents to Travel.
The rapid propagation of smells no
ticed In the oHn air appears due en
llrely to currents, since In small tubes,
where currents do not exist, the rate
Is found to be very small. Expert-
rnents along this line were first under
taken in England, and additional data
h ive been reported In this country.
With ammonia diffusing through a
tube n meter and a half long, more
than two hours elapsed before the
smell could bo detected at the other
end of the tube. Using different
lengths of tubing, It was found that
Hie time required for the diffusion of
the smell was roughly proportioned
to the square of the length.
Ammonia and hydrogen sulphide
were used for these experiments
The presence of ammonia could he
delected chemically at a point In a
lube after about the name time as
when the sense of smell was used
for a detector. The rate of propaga
Hon of the smell of ammonia was not
markedly different when this bud to
puss nlong ttie same tube cither hori
zontally or vertically downward
With camphor, however, while, the
rates horizontally and downward wen
about the same, the speed upward
was about twice as great. The smell
given to iron and brans by rubbing
these with the fingers was also tried,
hut gave no definite results.
