$ A Regular Proposal, ij:
ST was n drizzling May morning, a
left-over April dny, and tho hurry
ing crowds nt the Grand Central
Station were redolent of wet rubber
and woolen.
One only In the crowd seemed Indif
ferent to the weather a man who
'walked listlessly along the platform,
back and forth, heedless whether the
roof sheletercd him or not.
Now and then he glanced at his
watch and then tapped Impatiently
with his umbrella. Already he had
smoked three cigars and tried In vain
to sit In the waiting room reading.
Nothing eased his Impatience like this
steady tramping.
Once he encountered n familiar face
and raised his hat with a hurried
"How d'ye do?"
"That's young Averlll, old Tom
AverlH's son," explained his acquaint
ance to a companion, and the two

turned and looked after the young man
as ho continued: "Immensely rich, but
an odd stick."
The Impatient man was Tom Averlll,
Jr., and his behavior during the ensu
ing half hour was certainly odd. The
Chicago train pulled In and Tom Aver
lll stopped his walk and hurried down
to the train shed to meet It and stood
watching the passengers with a quick
eye, running from car to ear till It fell
on a party of three a young man, a
middle-aged woman and a very pretty
girl. Ills eyes brightened, his color
rose and he bolted Into the station,
out at the front door and nearly anni
hilated a small street urchin In his vio
lent haste to reach a cab.
Giving cabby an address and step
ping quickly In, lie turned and threw a
fresh-lighted cigar at the feet of the
street urchin. The boy grasped the
prize and remarked sententlously,
"Wheels!"
The cab stopped before the door of
some luxurious bachelor apartments
and Tom Averlll hurried to the eleva
tor, rushing out at the second lauding
and quito startled his man, who was
sponging an overcoat.
"Take that evil smell Into the bath
room, will you, Martin?" he cried, and
bustled his servant out, slamming the
door behind him.
"Well," he remarked smilingly to his
shaving mirror, "the Uptons came, and
to-morrow night I shall call on her
brother. Now how shall I manage It?"
be mused; "make a clean breast of
what I am and all about me and wind
up with a declaration of love? Tell
Dick first, I bupposc, nnd get blm to
ask her downstairs and leave us alone.
Then when wo, nro alone, b'm guess
I'll get up a regular proposal and see
bow It sounds."
lie examined the doors, to mako sure
they wcro both shut and locked, sat
down ami addressed an Imaginary per
son by his side.
"Dear Miss Upton (guess I won't sny
Marguerite), I want to tell you all
about my life. If you caro to, listen. I
was born thirty-two years ugo, and ns
nearly as I can guess no one was glad
to see me. My mother died at my
birth, and I nm told that my father
would iiot even sco mo till I was six
mouths old.
"Very little tlmo or attention ho gavo
mo uftcr that, or so It appeared to me.
I was left to the caro of servants dur
ing ray babyhood, and bustled off to a
boarding school ns soon ns I was old
enough. At homo tho old housekeeper
called mo tho 'oddest child she ever la
bored with,' and the maids all shunned
mo, Tho only childhood friends I re
member with nuy plcasuro are the
stnblo boy and a three-legged terrier
dog.
"From boarding school I went to col
lege, where I stayed three years. My
nllownnco was so scant that I would
not have been able to cut much ot n
swell If I had wished to. 1 believe my
solo ambition was to get through col
lege so ns to see what life had for mo
beyond.
"Near the end of my Junior year I re
eel vert a telegram saying my father
was dying. I went homo nt once, but
too late to II ml him alive. As I looked
on his dead face I realized for the first
time that I had utterly missed being
n son.
"Then I heard my father talked of,
and knew that I wns the son of a good
man, and grieved to think Hint I had
never really known him. The family
resemblnuco between -us enmo out
strong and came to me ns a new and
startling thing, for with the Hues
smoothed out nnd with tho youthful
look death sometimes brings, the dead
face was almost like my own,
"Tho day after father's funeral I mot
his attorney nnd learned from him
that I wns a rich man, rich beyond any
thing I ever dreamed of, nnd I blamed
my father for keeping me so scant
when ho had so much money; but In
looking over some of his papers I found
somo notes that were very precious to
me. They were his rules of life, nnd
among them was this: 'Keep the boy
short of money. He Is safer. There
will be time to learn of his wealth and
how to use It during our trip abroad
together.'
"Well. I went abroad soon after that
and lived a wandering life for ten
years. I had not learned how to use
money nnd I wasted a good deal 'learn
Ing,' but there was so much it hardly
mattered.
"I lived fairly simply nnd studied
some, but I was restless always. The
only thing that kept me from going
wrong was a until ml distaste for boor
Ish pleasures. No woman attracted
me, though I met many that are called
beautiful. I didn't gamble or drink be
cause I wasn't a 'good fellow' enough
to hove Invitations to carousals, 1
iiearu one lenow say mat my nose
went up too easy.
"Two years ago my lawyer called
me home to decide some Important
business and asked me to dinner at his
home. It was that night that I found
my lawyer was your father, and that
you were, well, what you are, and that
I liked to be as near you ns possible.
"I don't thluk I really fell In love
with you that night, but I was auxlous
to see you again soon. I decided to live
In New York, and fitted up bachelor
apartments and settled down. I had
no Idea that I ever should tell you I
loved you, but I wanted to be near ot
band. So I cultivated Dick's acquaint
ance. You needn't tell Dick I made use
of him, because his friendship Is one of
the best things iu my life.
"Hut just at first, before I knew.hlm
much, I played on his love of line pic
tures to get him over here to ray
rooms, and ofTered to help him with his
photographic prints In order that I
might be up In bis dark room when you
were sitting in the next room. We used
to hear your voice there while we
worked, and nearly always you came
to see the prints, and help pin them up
to dry.
"I was very happy In those days, and
If I could get Dick to tell me anything
about you I did. He always thought
you n frightful flirt, and always enjoy
ed relating your escapades with the
High School boys, but be always
wound up by saying: 'But she don't
care a rap for any one of them. Mar
guerlte will marry a steady old chap
some day, and a dandy little wife she'll
make him.' Then Dick would slap mo
on the back, and I would get red In the
face. Dick must have 8i!eu that I cared
for you.
"I suppose I should have let things
slip along this way forever If you
hadn't gone West, but when Dick told
me you and he and your mother were
going West for the winter I knew that
I must act some time. I must have you
for -my own, so that people couldn't
carry you off whenever nnd wherever
they pleased. I tried to ask you then,
but I was always tongue-tied whenever
Dick left us alone, as be often did
those last few weeks,
"I finally let you go with that one
whisper at the station, 'Good-by, dear.
You blushed, but you didn't take your
band away, and though your lips said
good-by to all In the little group that
came to see you off, your eyes said
good-by to mo alone.
"So I havo waited and hoped all
these mouths, and Dick has kept up
my courage with his letters. Ho has
told me many stories of young ranch
men who havo fallen a victim tp your
charms, but always wound up the same
way. 'Sho don't caro a pin for any of
them and will marry old steady, after
all.'
"So now I havo como to claim you,
dear (good place to tako her hand), nnd
ask you to bo my wife. Sho ought to
say something by this time, either yes
or no, and then I sha'n't know what to
do "
And Tom fell Into a haze of dream
ing till Martin timidly announced din
ner, Tho next evening Tom dressed care
fully, and walked slowly to tho Up
tons', Ho walked by tho house once,
but, coming back, ho spied Dick at nn
tipper window, nnd with a long-drawn
breath and a tightening of tho wholo
nervous system ho ran up tho steps
and rang tho bell.
The man ushered him In and ho ask
ed for Miss Upton. Ho had not meant
to ask for her, but was rehearsing his
proposal, and that was the way It be
gan. Tho man was gone, anyhow, and
so it couldn't bo helped, Dick would
probably como down when he saw tho
the window, so "It" would be delayed
for an hour.
I'orhnps he wouldn't ask her to-night.
It might be loo soon; ho would seo how
she received him. There wns no hurry;
she wouldn't bo going West ngnln noon.
He hurt never askeil for her alone bo
fore. What would sho think? There
was only ono Interpretation that he
wanted to sco her nlone. Well, so he
did, nnd he would nsk her to-dny.
Ilo walked restlessly up nnd down
the little reception room, conning tho
speech till n rustle of skirts miide him
slop abruptly In the middle of llio
room, with his eyes fixed on the door.
It opened In nn Instant, nnd a dainty
little maid stood framed in the door
way. Her brown eyes met Tom's
bravely nnd happily, and before he
knew what 1 e was doing he had open
ed his arms and she had come straight
to him.
"Hello, denr," she whispered, laugh
ing saucily. "Is that nil the love-nink-
Ing you know? Just one word dear.
And you never wrote even that one all
these months. How do you expect n
girl to know you love her when you net
so? I shouldn't lufve If I hadn't read
all Dick's letters. Denr old Dick! He
told me nil you hnd said about me, and
of course 1 knew."
An hour Inter Tom wns sitting on the
divan holding Marguerite's hand. Dlek
sat on the other side, null Mr. and .Mrs.
Upton hld chairs drawn near, and nil
formed a happy family group, but not
ono word had Tom uttered of his pro

MONACO AND MONTE CARLO.
Horn the G.i in I on Cnpltnl of the World
Ilrunti.
Monaco and Monte Carlo were always
more or less confused In my mind until
I came here, nnd possibly they may be
In yours. Monaco Is the name of the
kingdom ns well us of the cnpltnl and
chief town, nnd Monte Carlo Is a sepa
rate town, lying also on the const of the
.Mediterranean. The two places were
originally nbout n mile apart, but the
single street along the shore which con
nects them lias been so built up that
now they nre practically one, nnd It Is
hard to tell when you nre In Monte Car
lo nnd when you cross the lino Into
Monaco. Monaco Is the old town, with
dwellings and shops nnd castles and
dirt and a market place like any other
small F.uropcnn city, but Monte Curio
Is new, and lives entirely upon the Ca
sino. There are few dwelling houses
In It, few shops, few permnneut resi
dents beyond tho hotel nnd CiisIiki em
ployes, nnd even the Casino men live
mostly In Monaco, where rents are
cheaper. Monte Carlo consists chiefly
of the Casino and Its appurtenances, a
group of hotels, a railway station nnd n
very handsome arched stone railway
bridge.
Here nre the Mnrltlme Alps, rising al
most out of the back yards of both
plnces, the sea In front, uo bits of nr
able land bigger than flower licdsy no"
manufactures, no chanco for any In
dustrles beyond fishing nnd retailing
groceries. If you take away the gaming
tnbles. It was a strong temptation, no
doubt, to their little majesties of Monn
co to go In for anything that promised
to bring money Into the country. And
the winter t-flmntc wns the best In Ku
rope, nnd therefore suitable for a great
winter resort. Tho gambling industry
was begun here In 1830, but only In n
small way. Then, four years later, a
person named Illonc, who had been ex-
pelled from Homburg, came here nnd
developed It. At present the gaming
tables support everything. The Casino
Company pays the prince $230,000 a
year for the concession. This Is a stool
company of the ordinary kind, like nny
mining or Insurance company, with
shares that can be bought In the mar
ket and that pay such handsome dlvi
dends that they command always n
high premium. So, If you are a million
nlre, ns I hope you nre, nnd would like
to be In a position to dlctnte to a real
prince, you need only como over to
Monaco and buy enough shares In this
company. They, nre $100 shares, and
sell at present at nbout $300, I believe,

northern voyage of uiuru than usual
length last suiiuner for tho purpose of
studying the fauna In arctic waters
mid lands. They started In a little von
gel from the northern const of Norway
on June -I, and four rtuys Inter they nr
rived nt tho ley const of .Spitsbergen,
where they visited somo of thu deep
Molds and clusters of Islands. Then
they steamed far northeast to the wu
tors between .Spltxhcrgcn nnd Frnnx
Josef Land, where they reached tho
southwest coast of I'rlnce Charles Is-
land, which, it will lie remembered,
was visited for the first time two years
ago. They found there an archipelago
ot considerable extent which hud never
been explored. They procured a great
deal of Information nbout this almost
unknown region, and the account of It
u lileh they will publish is expected to
bo very Interesting. 1 hey were dlsup'
pointed, however, In not finding nhy
more relics of tho lost arctic aeronaut,
Andree. One ot his buoys hud been
picked up In the neighborhood of King
Charles Island, and this was believed
to be the likeliest plnee to find other ob
Jeets that might throw light upon tho
fate of tho explorer.
Then tho party steamed on their way
to the const of Kust Greenland along
the edge of tho polur Ice. They found
the great Ice puck Impenetrable, but
they kept on westward, close to tho Ico
edge, as fur us the Island of .Inn Muyeii.
This Is the bleak arctic hind that will
alwnys be famous as tho place where
In the seventeenth century a largo
party of whalers spending the polar
winter perished to a man of scurvy
The record they left of the tragedy was
nearly complete, for It was brought
down to within n dny or two of the
time when the Inst survivor probably
died.
Here the explorers found the pack
Ice stretching away to the west as
well ns to the north. They were able,
however, to push Into It and slowly
pick their wns west wnrrt. 1 1 ere and there
were grout hills of Ice, where the pres
sure had piled the pieces high. The Ice
wns everywhere covered with n thick
layer of snow, and their description of
It shows that It wns old polar Ice that
perhaps hud been slowly drifting south
wnrd for many months.
Tho expedition finally reached the
Knst Greenland coast at Mackenzie bay
on July 31. They found the ground en
tlrely frefrom snow, mid under thu
summer sun a good deal of vegetation
hnd developed. On Aug. 1-1, nfter
studying animal life on sen and land
for some days, the vessel entered Franz
Josef tlord, though seven days beforo
It had been completely blocked by Ice
In n week all the Ice had entirely dis
appeared. They remnlued In the fiord
until Aug. 23, nnd secured the unusual
prize of two young musk oxen, which
they took home with them to Sweden
This Is probably the first time that live
specimens of the musk ox havo been
carried to civilized lands, though tho at
tempt has several times been made.
