"Don't think of It," said Mr. Ilellalrs

slight Init lll tlmcd opposition culled II
Into life.
"I'm suru I should llko to buy that

Moro opposition followed from the

Her brother grow angry nt tho Idea,
while Ilellalrs, who would lilmsell

ed and almost angry with her, whom
hn worshiped In prlvuto us nimost n

"1 nm going to buy Hint horse," siild
Dliinu Huntingdon nt last, with an an
gry llnsli In her eyes.
Then out of his lovo nnd four for hoi

n ccnernl rule, wero perfect. Worso

"Indeed?" replied tho girl, with a

"I nm thlnklrur of buying him my

that a woman hater had absolutely no
right to own such n homo ns Ilellalrs
did, and that a heavy tax should be
Instituted to discourage Biieh flagrant
examples of cast-iron bachelorhood.
Ho was decoyed away Into discreet

on the stile, and the brook gurgled on,
mocking the nspfrntlons of matchmak
ing humanity. Tho dovellko eyes of
llurghmlnater beauty might have been
the blackened optica of a borough amn
ion, so small their attractions to the
stony-hearted Ilellalrs.
Ho now took long objectless ride
nlone on Demon Dandy, whose natural
depravity of character hnd almost dis
appeared under tho Influence of a long

The lights that followed wero of ben

Nevertheless, every time he met
Diana Huntingdon she could not help
noticing that he was growing thinner
and paler.
He. too, thought the same of her, till,
one one occasion, the thought pcoved
too much for lilm.
tsiio had just disappeared round n
bend In the leafy lane, walking slowly
nnd with drooping head.
Ilellnlrs, overcome by bis feelings,
clapped both spurs Into Demon Dandy,

Demon Dundy answered the chal
lenge by rearing wildly, then falling
backwards with a heavy crash on to
his master. '
Ilellalrs was conscious of a glimpse
of Demon Dundy's uoac against the
sky Then n flash passed before bis
eyes nnd he knew no more.
When lie came to himself ho found
Ills lost divinity bending over him.
He had a vague Idea that she was
culling lilm "Jack" and her "boy."
A half hour elapsed.
Ilellnlrs said little. He Just lay there
happily, explaining matters nnd recov
ering his breath.
"It Is Just as well that I did not let
you buy Demon Dandy," he said at
Inst.
"Just ns well, dearest, since you nre
not killed," snld Dlnna. "Hut you will

A hitherto unknown element In milk,

called galactose, which Is proving of
value In the ripening of cheese. The
properties of this ferment are similar
to the secretion of the pancreatic organ
In the human body. Old cbeesu Is a
pre-dlgcsted food, and the digestion is
wrought by the galactose. It was found
that the galactose would go on working
nt very low temperatures, temperatures
nt which bacteria were practically

cheese was kept Just above the freezing

Substitute for Sleep.
A London paper says that tho health
of people In fnshlouablo society Is bo
lug dangerously threatened by n uow
drug which Is popularly regarded its a
substitute fur sleep. Very discreetly
It declines to name this dangerous sub
stance. When tea was II rat Introduced
Into Europe It wns. commended for the
same virtue, and It wns believed that
It would no longer bo necessary to
waste seven or eight hours lu sleep.
But extended experience has showtt the
disastrous results of cutting short tho
period of natural rest nnd keeping
awake by tho help of tea, and there Is
no reason to suppose that chemists will
ever be ablo to devise any substitute
for sleep which will not lu the long
run bring nervous breakdown. Spring.

Mr. Jones Checkmated the Importunate
Contractor for Convict Labor.
When Thomas G. Jones, whom Pres
ident Roosevelt has appointed district
Judge In Allnbama, wns -Governor of
the State, the bad practice prevailed
of farming out convicts In labor camps.
Under tho law they were let out by
contract to the highest t bidder, und
were liable to neglect n'nd maltreat
trfcuL The Governor hud to administer
the laws as he found them, but to this
law, says a writer lu Harper's Week
ly, he was stoutly opposed.
One day a negro wns sentenced to
ten years' Imprisonment. The law re
quired the Governor's signature to n
paper before the man could be sent to
the convict camp. The Governor did
not act as promptly as those who con
tracted for the labor of the convicts
thought desirable, so they sent n rep
resentative to him t- find out what tho
matter was.
"I have delayed acting In this man's
case," said the Governor, "because I
have heard that measles, In a very ma
lignant form, have broken out In your
camp, and that many of the convicts
ore dying. Is It true?"
"Yes," said the agent, lightly; "but
what difference does tbat make? Send
him along. He may not catcb the
measles, anyway, and If he does, and
dies, why. It's only one nfgger the less."
"That Is all I wanted to know," re
plied Governor Jones. "I scud no more
persons, black or white, to your camp
till the disease Is under control.
The agent reddened.
"See here. Governor," he snapped
nut, angrily, "you don't own tlnf State
of Alabama! We have still some courts
open. If you refuse to send that man
to camp, wo shall go Into court and get
out a mandamus, and then you will
have to do It."
It was now the Governor's turn to
flujh. He wheeled upon his visitor
with a gesture toward the door.
"You go into the nearest court and
try your best to force me to do what I
do not believe Is right!" ho thundered.
"Try It It will teach you a lesson. Tho
same laws which give me power to sign
that paper give me authority to pardon
a convict. Now I serve you with fair
warning that the Instant I see your
emissary enter that door with your
mandamus In his hand, I sign a par
don for the convict I Now go!"
An Author' Idea of Plenty.
The good of money Is to get things you
want This Is the creed of Harry Still
well Edwards, the Georgia novelist.
Mr. Edwards decided to write a story
In competition for a J10.000 prize offer
ed by a newspaper for the best Ameri
can story of mystery. Mr. Edwards
was a writer of Southern verse, and of
dialect stories of that picturesque peo
plo of the South known as Georgia
Crackers. He surprised his, friends by
saying that bis wife bad furnished a
splendid plot for the tale of mystery
that he was to offer.
The couple went to work enthusiasti
cally on the story, entitled It "Sons and
fathers," and It won tho first prize.
To the question. What will you do
with tho money? tho Edwardses said
not a word. Weeks passed and the
curiosity of the townspeople wns still
on edge. Then, one day, an express
wagon delivered twenty crated bicycles
before the Edwards plazzl.
"Every single relative of mine," said
Mr. Edwards, "has wanted a bicycle.
and not ono of them would linvo a poor
wheel. There aro twenty of us, all
told, In tho two families, and so -when
I got a check for '?10,000 I Just scut
$3,000 to the best bicycle firm lu the
country, and got twenty $100 bicycles.
And wbat'a money for If It Isn t to get
