to her bedroom, bat the door wet wide

sickening apprehentlon, he tor It open
"Mjr dear hatband, we haTe made a

wife had left him. and aeme one mutt

Of all the person who auffered be
cause Kitten cbote to ran away from her
busbind't hoate, none endured at firat a
more acute sense of agony conected with
that event than did Margaret Orantley.
The next day all the world knew of It.
Th scandal-mongers and th goslp-lor-er.
and all the crowd of tlttle-tattlen,
male and female, buxzed about Ilk bee
nut of a hire orer this one Httl delight
ful raorael of scandal which bad come
to diaturb, with a pleating excitement,
the errn current of a hitherto uoereatful
season. It waa the talk of th club,
and the popular topic of th park.
"It setma that Hrlan Desmond neg
lected her," aald oae.
"Well, the mutt be a thoroughly bad
Jot," aaserted another; "and auch a fool,
too, to go and bolt!" Thla one, of courae.
waa a woman.
, Aad fint and foremott amoBg them
all, as a matter of eourae. waa Mrs. Tal
bot, and many were th knowing wink
and nodt and ahakes of her head, half
uttered sentence, and half-eempleted
revelations, by which ahe gar Terybody
to underttand that ah knew of a great
ma ay more horrible and dreadful detail
than did any one elte, and that there
were things thine connected with th
who! bumes! Ab, well, if they wero
but known well, he could only aay that
th hair on the heads of tho whole pop
ulation of Loudon would simply stand on
end with It!
"And Is It really true, then, that that
poor youvg fool, Hlr Hoy Orantley, haa
gone off with her?" aaked tome one.
"Not a doubt of It," answered Ger
trude, almott viciously, for h waa an
gry with Itoy for admiring Kitten.
"Why, I met hi titter at aupper laat
night, asd you abould hare seen th
poor woman's face; why, ahe nearly
fainted when she heard the newt."
Three days tnus patted away, and attll
conjecture and go til p ran rife, and aean
dal refuted to be alleneed concerning
Mrs. Desmond and her dolngt. And
then one 0ue morning, Jutt wbeo Mar
garet was nearly driren demented by all
the rumors and bints wbleh her dear
friend In erery direction took care to
conrey to her, up drore Itoy himself In
a hantom, to her door In Connaugbt
Kuare. with hit auiall portmanteau
nbore him, and with as unconcerned an
air as though be bad been away for a
couple of days' bunting or shooting.
"For hear en' aake, Roy, what la the
meaning of all this?" she cried breath
letaly to bltn, a he entered her draw
Hoy looked surprised, almott tnoro by
her manner than by her wordt. Ilia tit

motion, and her bands, aa he took them
In his, trembled nerrously.
"My dear Margaret, I do not under

"Anything the matter? How can you
aak audi a thing? Do you take me for
a child, Roy? Do you auppoto I do not
know, baro not heard ererytblng every

looking slightly puzzled and bwllderd.
"Where Is Mrs. Dttmond?" th asked
him almost In a whisper, so terrible was
her nnxUty. ...
"What haa that got to do with your'

"Alii" she cried, "then It I true what
everybody la saying? It waa you who

time reeolleeted these brwkea eagage
meatt. with a sort of horror at hit own
careirtaBess. He looked from oae to the
other ef the ladle la abtate dltaay;
he began to pereeire ia what light hit
conduct appeared to tb world.
"It It net true?" pleaded hit coasla.
with a wistfBl ea treaty la her dark eyro.
"So. ef course It It net true," he an
awered quickly. "How could It be true?
Hut errrybody em te har goae mad.
For bearen'a aake tell me bow tblt bat

Itr He wa no longer angry, only dlt
mayed and distressed beyond meature.
"You hare only to aay you don't know
where Mrs. Demesd is," ssld Gertrude.
"Hut I cannot aay that. I do knew
where ahe it." he aatwered grarely.
And then Mr. Talbot laughrd.
In aH bit life Hoy nerer hated Mrs.
Talbot so cordially asd so Intensely aa
be did when she attered that short laugh.
It waa a laugh that meant so much.
Contemptuoas disbelief la mankind, tri
umphant eoaSrmatlon ef the suspicions
of the world, the rula of Kitten's fair
name, all seemed to be eoatprited la that
abort, aaeerisg outbarit of ill-timed hi
larity. Felicia, oa the contrary, itemed op
pretted with detpalr at ber cou tin's most
unexpected antwer. She tank down Into
a chair with a look of helpless distress,
and tears gathered thickly la her eyes.
"Oh. Roy," she cried, "don't, don't say
that. It cannot be true don't say It."
"Why should I not say It?" he an
swered, a little defiantly, becaut of that
other woman who aat by with a aneer
upon her lips, "It Is quite true. I da
know where Mrs. Desmond Is now. Why
should I deny It? Sh wss In great
trouble. Hbe sent for mo becaut I am
her oldest friend, and I helped ber to
Itare town and to go to a plac where the
wlthed to stay fer a little time."
"And whero la that, pray?"
"That la her aecret and mine," he an
twered frowning. And then Mrs. Talbot
Hbe got up and ahook out her skirts',
and prepared to take her Itare of Fe
licia. "It won't wash, Hlr Hoy, It won't
wash!" she said, with odious laugh still
upon her lip. "Will It, Felicia, dear?"
"I don't see why you should doubt my
cousin's word," said Felicia, rather dog
gedly; "there ia nothing extraragant In
what he baa told ua. He Is Mrs. Des
mond's oldett friend. If the waa In trou
ble It was quite natural that the abould
send to blm."
And then Gertrude laughed again and
took her leare of the coutlnt.
There waa one thing which Hoy un
dentood, and of which Gertrude and the
world knew nothing, and that waa the
peculiarity of Kitten's character, which
had led ber to do a thlug which, to the
eyes of othera, waa foolish and repre
hensible; but which was In entire accord
ance with the natural simplicity of her
own mind. Ern Felicia, who waa affec
tionate and aynipathetlc, could not enter
"Roy," she said to him, when the door
had doted upon Gertrude, "this Is too
dreadful! How Is this business to be
bettered? How are these two people to
b brought together again?"
"I bare no power to Interfere," he
aald sadly. "Kitten I no child. I can
only do aa aba tells me to do."
Now to Felicia, It teemtd that Kttteu
waa not only a child, but alao an ex
ceedingly foollth one; but knowing Roy's
Infatuation, she forebore to express her
"Do you think of the husband, poor
Mr. Desmond? It Is dreadful for him."
But Roy could not be brought to pity
Drlan. The man who had dared to win
the deep lore of Kltteu'a aoul, and to
glre her back nothing but the empty
husks of hi life, waa to him an object
not of companion, but of abhorrence
"What It h doiec-ls be looking for
her?" waa all ho aald gloomily, atttr a
"No, ho tecmt ttuatxJ. 1 hte rn

Felicia tpoke of IWrsr Halkr with a '

Roy waa far too Mac absorbed la kit

HE RODE FIRST CLASS.
Coot More, but lie Didn't Hare to Tush
A gentleman who recently returned
from a far Western trip told this atory
the other day of a atnge coach rble
which ho had In the Rocky Moun
tains. "I wanted to go to a ruliilrii; en nip
which was ten mile from the nearest
railroad ktntlon, nml the only wuy to
Kfit there was either to walk or go by
"When I reached the coach the driv
er wanted to know how I wished to
travel first, second, or third class. I
thought this question peculiar, ns I did
not see three coaches, but one. How
ever, I decided to go lint class, and
the driver replied the fare would be
12. Khortly ufter I had taken my aeat
another 1111111 came tip to tho coach,
and, after talking with tho driver, de
cided to go Hecoml class, at $1, Ho
entered the coach and sat directly op
posite me. Presently a rather tough
looking fellow, resembling n trump,
also entered the coach nml aat down
beside me. He Ktiid he would travel
third cIuhs, and his fare was only SO
"After we were on our Journey n
tie way I begun to wonder In what
consisted the difference of iiccoinmodu
tloiix mid why there should be three
classen when we all ahared the snnio
coach. My Ignorance on this point waa
enlightened when we dually came to a
long hill. Tho driver stopped his
hordes, and, turning around In his Heat,
cried In a high voice: 'First-class pa
sengers, keep their seats; second-class
passengent, get out and wulk, and,
third-class pasxengers, get out ami
push!' I waa glad I was traveling first
class." Baltimore Hun.

Considerable argument I rife
among writers as to the relative mine
of small ami medium or large tubers,
for use as seed. It Is claimed that
the small tuber will often (generally,
perhaps) produce as large ami fine re
sults as the Inrger tuber used for
seed. We Itelleve this claim I ofwii
to question at least beyond llie first
generation, for It Is tte to say that
degeneration can only be tbe result
from planting the small tulers a num
ber of seasons In successkm. This
seems to be a logical conclusion to
reach On the other hand, It Is quite
a logical to assume that the fine me
dium or large tuber, containing as It
must all the vigor and flue points of
the variety, will produce flrst-claa
progeny and, we believe, this Is es
sentially the case when the seed tu
bers are selected from one's own prod
uct and selected at the proper time am)
properly cared for If the seed pota
toes are selected from the bin, be the
selection from small or the large tu
bers, In the spring Just about the time
they are wanted for use, It must not be
expected tlmt they will give us good
results as those which have been proe
erly selected In the fall and properly
cared for. There Is a decided saving
of time, money and fertilizer In the
careful selection of the seed potatoes,
as any one will discover who will take
the necessary trouble Kxchange.

a woodeu building. It pays better to
keep tho roof painted than It does the
sides, and It will also need to be paint
ed oftontr. When shingle are used
from clear, straight-grain wood and
kept always palntod, they will last a
very long time. One of the advan
tages or painting roofs is to keep wa
ter from the nails, where rusting soon
rots the wood where they are driven.
