small, slight woman, with regular, del

hair nearly white, combed back and
urmounted by tiny cap of exquisite
laco with n tuft ot scarlet relvet rib

She was speaking with a fair, large
lady about her own age, who occupied
An arm chair at the other Mile ot tho

with a comfortable smile, but showing
no Inclination to more.
"I do not mind being Interrupted

"Thank you: they hare tenred my

"When do you leaTe town?"
"I am not quite sure. I do not care
to go until Hugh returns. He ought to
be here now. This vre about trouble
with Itussla may bring him his ap

ought to be on the spot. He has been
ashore now for nearly a year."
"I wonder he chose the nary," said
the visitor. "I should think the army
must be much the most agreeable pro
fession." "My dear Lady Olivia! who can ac
count for a young man's vagarlesT My
son Is positively enthusiastic about his

"When ha last wrote he was still
at Nice. He has stayed on there too
long, I think. I trust and hope he
doe not visit Monte Carlo too often;
I am not much obliged to Lord Ever

"I don't fancy poor Everton' friends
are generally what would be consld

when they have pretty daughters who

he added, with a comfortable laugh.

the bell. "Where Is Everton Just now?
I want him so mueh to write to his

the dog'a head; "you aro a natural

Hero the footman opened the door,
and said, deferentially, "If you please,
'in, Mr. Rnweon would like to see you,'
"Yes, certainly. Show him up."
In a few minutes the door again
opened, to admit a gentleman, a short,
stout, well-dressed man. slightly
breathless, and apparently well braced
up In his admirably-fitting clothes. His
hair and complexion were ot that neu
tral tint which Is termed "pepper and
salt," hi eyes light gray and twink

upon solicitor and client plunged Into
an animated discussion. In which Mrs,
Savlllo proved herself to be a shrewd
woman of business.
"Well. Mr. Rawson." she said, after
a short pause, "respecting a smaller
matter, yot not an unimportant one.
Have you made any Inquiries about an
amanuensis or companion for me?"
"I hardly thought you were serious
In the wish you expressed "
"I am, exceedingly serious," sho In
terrupted. "My maid, who has Just
left me, was really a very superior
person, and could read aloud very
well; now I have a totally different

fairly educated, who can write, and

French novels; she must be fit to asso

with any one whose feelings I have to

"No; of Hugh."
"Well, no, not for a week. Ho was

"I know that, and It makes me very

Is not the season."
"Are you afraid ot Monte Carlo? I
don't think you need be. Mr. Hugh
Savllle never was Inclined to gamble."
"I am afraid of something much
worse a designing woman,"
"Indeed!" And Mr. Rawson glanced
curiously at her.
"Yes," continued Mrs. Savllle, strok
ing the little dog's head thoughtfully.

fully. "I navo an admirable match for
Hugh, deslrnblo In every way; so,
when I found ho had wandored back
to Nice and was lingering there, I felt
not a llttlo uneasy."
"Did you say the young lady's name

"Yes; her father Is, or calls himself,
"Then I don't think you need dis

In a newspaper. He died somewhere
In Franco, but not at Nice. I noticed

"How can you tell If It be the
rame?" Mrs. Savllle was beginning,
with great animation, when the butter
appeared, carrying on a salver n large
envelope bearing the Inscription "On
Her Majesty's Service" and addressed
to Lieutenant Hugh Savllle.
"This Is some appointment for my
son," cried Mrs. Seville. "I knew It
would come In this unexpected way. Is
It not maddening that ho should be
hbsent?' As sho spoke, she toro the
letter open and glanced at It. and ex
claiming, "Yes, as I thought!" handed
It to her confidential adviser. He took
It, and read as follows:
"Admiralty, Whitehall, July 20.

you that you are appointed to H. M. 8.

"You must telegraph to him without
a moment's loss of time." said Mr.
Rawson. "If he starts to-morrow, or
to-night, why. he'll be here In thirty
six hours. Very little time need be
lost. Shall I wlro for you?"
"Oh, yes, please; and reply to this,
too. Let them know ho Is coming."

If Venus herself had her hand on him

accept my best congratulations." Mr,
Rawson bowed himself out.
Mrs. Savllle mechanically rose and
rang the bell. Then she stood In
thought for n minute, and rang again.
This time the butler presented him
self. "Atkins," said his mistress, "I ex

Ventilation of StHtil.
Hero's a good method ot ventllatlug
an ordinary stable. Intake flues are
constructed In the sldo walls. The ven
tilation flues will take up considerable
space but are more efllclent than a
single flue. Openings aro at or near
tho floor level and the tops several feet
above the rldgo of the roof. Caps or
cowls may be placed over them to keep
out rain and snow.
Another arrangement of flues which
is qulto eflectlvo lu securing vcntlla

Is well to follow this plan as soon as

adds vigor and strength to the hens

One of the difficulties in poultry
raising Is to get the bens to moll ear

In the fall and winter, when eggs are
high. Lett to thomselres, hens will
lake a long tlmo to molt, and will not
finish until cold weather sets in. They
will not then lay until early spring
and all the profits for the winter
months aro lost At the poultry In

gavo his method of controlling tho
molting of hens. As soon as the hens
are through laying he turns them onal
falfa, feeding them dry bran only. In
addition. Under this treatment they
get thin. Then ho feeds them a mixed
ration of grains and meat, giving n
light feed In tho morning and all they
will cat at noon and night Under
this trea'ment thoy finish molting
quickly, get new feathers and begin
laying In September. Hy Oetober I
