Two birds flew out of the South one day,
And over the Joyous world

And gladly Its tired ng furled.
And one bird high on the tnltat tree
A place for It iinting found,
While humbly the other built Its home
Low down on the commou ground.
A Shrike flew by and It saw the not
That swayed In the branches high,
Hut the tow built nct of tbo humble

II was a very brilliant nffalr. Cecil
w Ackcrson, who hated balls nud
that sort of foolery, and only attend
ed them becanso be was obllRed to do
so by the ofllce -which Jic held, bad
come to-night for a purpose. Cecil
Ackcrson was a strong man.
It was not till late In the festivities
that he was able to approach Helena
CJorrlnse, acknowledged beauty of the
Kngllsb colony at Carlshren. She was
engaged to young Vincent Kenyon
Carstalrs, who bad been only six
months appointed to a post at the
embassy. Ackcrson was aware or
tho engagement, but tho knowledge
did not trouble him.
"If you don't mind. Miss Gorrlnge.
I would rather not dance," said he.
Through the curtains that shaded
their retreat five minutes afterward
he could catch a glimpse of the light
ed ballroom. Then Cecil Ackcrson
was telling her that he loved her. Ills
words came quickly, but bis" voice
was very flrvi, and she was unable to
stop blm. He said that be had never
been a woman's man, and be bad
never met a woman like her. Ills
vehemence frightened ber, but she
rose and turned on him with blazing
eyes, telling him of her engagement to
Cecil Ackcrson laughed and took ber
back to the ballroom. On the morning
lng after bis astonishing behavior to
Miss Gorrlnge Ackcrson walked tav
agcly to and fro In his private room
at the embassy. He thought of In
numerable schemes, but at length only
came to the conclusion that Kenyon
Cnrstalrs was In bis way.
The next day or so Cecil Ackcrson
had to leave such thoughts alone, for
relations wero a little strained with
the home country. The country of
which Carlshren waa tho capital was
small, but Important. The question
of war even hinged on the proper con
duct of these negotlatlono. And then
the Idea came to blm by which he
might put bis young rival right out of
the running. He sent for Carstalrs.
The latter came at once, wondering for
what purpose his chief wanted him.
"I have an Important dispatch here
for borne, and I have selected you to
carry It You will take the dispatch
with you when you leave this evening.
You will start to-morrow morning,
and you should reach the coast by
night. I find there is no night boat
from Ilalcund, so you will have to stay
there the night. I need hardly coun
sel you to take great care of the dis
"Very well. Come to me tills even
ing for tho dispatch.
Vincent Carstalrs went to tell Miss
Gorrlnge ho was going away for a day
or so. He was full of his news.
"You look happy," said she.
"I am," Carstalrs replied. "The chief
bad me up this morning and gave me
instructions. I've got to- carry," be
paused for effect, "an Important dl
patch. Why, what's the matter? You
"Ob, nothing," said Miss Gorrlnge.
"Did you say that Mr. Ackcrson gave
you the dispatch?"
"Of course; who else would?"
"I wonder what a dispatch Is like?"
asked Miss Gorrlnge, Innocently.
"JiiBt an ordinary paper folded," said
Carstalrs. "Would you like to look nt
It?" He had been longing to show It
nil the, time. He took tho shallow tin
case from his pocket and unlocked It,
and banded tbo case to her.
Slio took It to tbo window to sco it
better, and for a minute her back was
"Let me lock it," she said, and there
was a little click. As she gave the
case back she shuddered a little.
llut when, later on, Carstalrs waited
downstairs to say good-by, she camo
suddenly into the dim hall.
"Walt a minute hero'B something
for you," and suo put a tiny envelope
Into his hand. "It's a note from me,
but yon're not to read It till you're on
"What's all this mystery?" said Car
"Never mind. Don't open it till you
are on the boat. Good-by."
UNCLE SAM'S QUERY.
"What's nil this fuss nhout? Seems to me you've given a pretty good ac
count of yourself whenever called on."
"Good-by," said Carstalrs. and was
At the Grand Hotel, Hnlzund, Car
stalrs ordered dinner In a private
room. Half an hour later the land
lord came to htm with a long face. Ills
house was crowded, he bad no room
whatever, and a gentleman had Just
arrived after traveling nil day; would
Mr. Carstalrs be so good as to let the
stranger dlno with him? Ho was ex
tremely sorry to Inconvenleuce Mr.
"Not at altr said Carstalrs. and he
sat down to dinner with a black-bearded
man who had small, keen eyes.
Carstalrs congratulated himself on
having sneb a brilliant companion. Tbo
stranger seemed able to talk on any
After the meal they rang for coffee,
and Carstalrs got up from his chair
and went to his overcoat pocket for
his cigarette case. As quick as light

and a little dark powder slid into the
An hour had passed before Carstalrs
came to himself. He experienced a
sickening sensation of weariness as
he oponed his eyes. Where was he?
The lltter.of the dinner things still lay
upon the table; two of the red-shaded
candles had fluttered out. There were
unpleasant shadows now In the comers
of tho room, and knowledge crept
steadily lock to him. The queer tast
ing coffee he remembered, and there
had been a stranger. Could It be pos
sible? He sprang to his feet, with a
white face, frantically unbuttoning bis
coat Great heavens! the dispatch was
His thought went back to Nell Gor
rings, and then suddenly be remem
bered the strange manner of her good
by to blm. Ho felt for the note In his
pocket; and his face changed from
night to morning as he read:
"Dear Old Ken I had a carious Idea
when you told me of your talsslon that
you were rather too confident, and that
something might happen to your dis
patch. Bo I took a great liberty. Ken.
When you put the tin caso Into my
hands I took the paper; there wan
nothing inside it. And I have sewn
tho dispatch Inside tho lining of your
overcoat pocket. NELL."
Caratalra darted to bis overcoat, and
his fingers tore nt tho lining of the
pocket. Through the gnp he made
showed something white. 11m next
minute hu was waving the dispatch
abovo his head In his excitement.
Ho the dispatch waa carried safoly
to Its destination, uid Kenyon Car
stalrs and Nell Gorrlngs were married
in tho spring.
The black-bearded man was well on

Tho man with the black beard and

IIC HOLDS THE RECORD AS
B. It. Netley has been public school
superintendent of St. Joseph, Mo., for
tblrty-ulue years and Is still alive. Any
man who Is
able to stand

of school teach

years and retain

must have the patlcnco of Job, the di
plomacy of Talleyrand and tho ability
of a Gladstone.
Mr. Neeley took bold of the public
schools shortly after the war, and his
first pupils were lodged In buildings
that bad been tired ns stabler by (Kith
Union and Confederate soldiers. Now
St, Joseph has thirty-three modern
school houses, with '.WO teachers.

According to tho Idea of the new
world the Japanese do nearly every
thing back-handed, or Just tho reverse
from what we work. Tiie contrasts
between our civilization and that of
Japan may be Illustrated by giving
a list of some of their everyday cus
toms and Ideas. For example, says
the Detroit Tribune, a person who Is
very fat Is admired In Japan. Wed
dings are celebrated at night; the
husband and wlfo do not cat togeth
er, as a rule; kissing and shaking
hands are practically unknown. A
antae carpenters pull tho plane toward
ward, is their modo of flirtation. Jap
aueso carpenters pull the plant toward
them; the threads of their screws
turn to tho left; their keys turn In
ward. Kmall children are strapped
on tlio backs of larger ones, and so
tarried about; tho Japanese sit down
before distinguished men, In token of
respect; they remove their shoes when
they enter n house; their books be
gin at tbo right and their footnotes
aro placed at the top of the page; they
wrlto vertically down a sheet of pa
por; their color for mourning Is white;
tho best rooms In their house aro In
tbo rear; they back a homo In a
stall and bitch hlin In tho front and
so these opposite ways of doing things
might bo continued. Another dotall of
difference lies In tho fact that Japnn
