I By MARTHA M. WILLIAMS
( by McClurs Newspaper Syndicate.)
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, harmony 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
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 apart
the Increment of ber small economies.
She loathed extravagance espe
cially the Carroll Beaton 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 sand
wiches 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'B 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 'yea,'" Susan re
turned smiling slyly.
Miss Karper 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 has always
Maybe he's saltln the old cow for
the calf but I have my doubtB,"
from ths gossip. Miss Kapper opened
he Hps to speak, but shut them with
sif sf ths Jaws on what she had
meant Is say, running on after a niln
uts to her fall clothes which meant
making some few new ones and mak
ing wvvr many that had seen service.
Dyed, rs-eet and refurnished they
would look ew and wear Just as well
nd safc saving! Jennie Brltt,
ths ltttts )ld maid dressmaker,
charged so Btoderately even Carroll
Beaton could afford her If only she
would. And so obliging always ready
to turn, and sootrlve, make the most
of every scrip of lace or trimming
and never svn4 la a bill till the end
of the quarter. Jennie was an Institu
tion, said Ml Kapper, and "John
Huntly'U egret to that," said Miss
Susan. "He roes there every little
while to hear hsr tsO sbout his moth-
er they wers little girls together, and
went to ths sams school. She gave
him his first cass when he started
law-practice I shall always say she'd
never s-gone snd 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 Brltt felt she
could let It ride, a sure provision for
age or Illness, meanwhile earning
trifle more tbsn she spent to live if
she did work so Chen p. She had rooms
downtown two, shabby but clean al
ways snd rather cheery by lamj, light.
John Huntly found them no upon
rslny October evening, whose early
luck had somrhuw made him lose
relish for work. Aunt Jennie would
brace him np she was so birdlike, al
ways cheery, no matter where the
wind sat She would give him tea,
just the sort he liked not too strong

dark blurs against her single eggshell

Miss Jennie smiled to hear It. "Sit
still hers snd don't yoo peep," she
adjured her first visitor over her sboul

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 to make, he had felt her
beyond bis reach. Miss Kapper, of
whom he saw a good deal, both In
business and socially, was perhaps to
blame for the feeling. He liked her
cordially 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
ber 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
All this was nebulously at the back
of Huntly's mind, when he heard Aunt
Jen, saying briskly: "You've got a
new frock, child never mind how I
know so you bring It here tomorrow.
II make it In time for the Aliens'
party If I have to sew Sundays.1
"Get thee behind me, Brltt you
know I can't afford It" Carroll Inter

"Bless your heart, I can't afford
that any more than the other thing,
you angel-sp-arrow 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
Ilrltt. 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 thre4
Now, If you'll put the old lining It
Is perfectly good except at the neck,
and there's plenty of It, In this other
coat, I'll be quite willing to pay you

"You ought to be I" 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

or I'll take the work to somebody

lated. A halt minute later the door
At the sound Huntly came from the
kitchen saying with an angry laugh:
"Aunt Jen my coming tonight was
purely providential "
"I reckoned so myself," from Aunt
Jen. "Gave you a 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.
SMELL CARRIED BY CURRENTS
Experiments Hsvs Bean Mads to
Show the Time Taken for Vari
ous Scents to Travel. .
The rapid propagation of smells no
ticed In the opn air appears due en
tirely to currents, since In small tubes,
where currents do not exist, the rate
Is found to be very small. Experi
ments along this line were first under
taken In England, and additional data
have been reported In this country.
With ammonia diffusing through
tube a muter and a half long, more
than two hours elapsed before the
smell could be detected at the other
end of the tube. Using different
lengths of tubing, It was found that
the time required for ths 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 be
detected chemically at a point In a
tube after about the same time as
when the sense of smell was used
for a detector. The rate of prnpaga
Hon of the smell of ammonia was not
markedly different when this had to
pass along the same tube either hort
.ontally or vertically downward.
With camphor, however, while the
rates horizontally snd downward were
about the same, the speed upward
was about twice as greut. The smell
given to Iron and brass by rubbing
these with the fingers was also tried,
hut gsve no definite results.
You are so used to seeing our domes
