Idea of parting with her now would

'no gradually that Hope Desmond had
to look back, and recall her first Im
pressions to measure the change.
The weather was fine, the sky blue,
and sunshine beautified all things. It
eemed ImpoMlble not to partake of
the general exhilaration which perrad

It was afternoon, and the Champv

nnd Hope returned from tbelr earlier
drive, and on arriving at the hotel
found another open carriage drawn up
at the entrance, from which a gor-geousty-dressetl

she spoke to the porter He made a
gesture towards the new arrival,
thereupon the lady looked round and

"Well, dear Mrs. Savllle. and how

"I like Germany, and I am remark'

turned on a rapid flow of gossip. As
aoou air she made a pause for breath.
Mrs. Savllle said, wearily:

"I aupnoe you know Richard Is

"They say ? Who say?"
"Ob. the literary world. I am think

Archives of Castleton Forest. There
are Iota of old deeds and letters In the

Long Parliament times. One must

"Indeed Can't you compile a time

"Xow. do not be disagreeable I

Hope did not answer and It was ar
ranged that Miss Dacre should call for
her favorite confidante that ermine
en route for the theater.
"I have a hundred and one tb'.ngj
to say lo you." mhlspered Mis Dacre
when Hope Desmond escorted her to
the stair after she had taken lea of
Mrs. Savllle. "The same mysterious
fate still dogs me. I do not know what
spell binds George Lumley to silence.
Poor fellow! I am so forty for hint!
I rather Imagined he thought I was

feared to utter a word that might of

my hopes, all my ambitions, centered

"Yes. I have heard," returned Hope,
In such tremulous accents that Mrs.
Savllle looked up, as If surprised and
touched by her keen sympathy, "It
eems very cruel."
"Seems! It Is. To be forgotten,

The calendar year l'Ju3 will show n
smaller exportation of wheat than any
year In the last deeade, and an In
creuted home consumption, both In
amount and per capita average, says
a reiiort ot the Rureau of Statistics on
wheat production, exportation and con
sumption of the United State
The continued decline In exports' of
breadstuff lend Interest to the slato
ment. The exportation of wheat for
the nine months ending with Septem
ber amounted fo only 27,768,001 bush
els, against C8,178,9SC bushels In the
same month of 1908; flour exports were
6,288,283 barrels, against ,i28.3t7.
This reduction In exports of wheat
seems to be due to Increased consump
tion at home rather than at any de
cline In production. The average an
nual production, for the last five years
has exceeded any earlier five-year
