OUR CHORE BOY.
8h' up at the break of the dawn.
And tumbling the hay from the mowi,
And a merry laugh ringa, and a cheery
When Mollis Is feeding the cows.
Here's Speckle and Hrlndle and Bens,
And itutttrcup thereby the door.
Their big stur.chlnr.s creak, for they're
trying to speak.
When Mollie comes over the floor.
The horses stand tn the stalls
Their whinnying begging begin,
As If each understood tiuu the measure
When Mollte Is near to the bin.
And the cattle will follow her round
With a dumb, never falling regard,
As If trying to boast w hich waa loving her
When Mollis goes Into the yard.
Oh, H's well tftr a lasn!e to mend,
And It's well for a lassie to darn.
Hut her eyt s aro a bright as the stars tn
When Mollte does chores at the barn.

Mrs. riUinnrd picked up a little sil

of rose-bloom to her cheeks. .Mrs
Weston stretched her blue sntln sllp
pm toward the bright grate fire with
a luxurious little wriggle, but her
eyes, blue ns the slippers, never left
her hostess' face. They narrowed
shrewdly as Mrs. Stanard leaned close
to the tniera.
"A little more! That's better. Not

rest of it 7 Won't do, my dear. Ituin-

"I wish you would not mu that
abominable akinff. You talk like some
factory jrlrl." Mrs. rltanard put the
liver box back on her dressing table
with a wenry little gesture and the
blue eyes narrowed again.
"My dear, It la absolutely impossible
to expreae one'a self In the queen's

Inadequate. The factory jrlrl snys in

Mrs. Weston elevates her artistical

suede gloves with one finger. The
other folds her arms on the silver
Cupid frame of her tall ehrml glass
and drojia her head on her arms.
After carefully counting the penrl
clasps three times Mrs. Weston nods
in a satisfied manner, then allows her
eyes to travel up the long lace train

a glass of wine from a cabinet.
"Drink, pretty creature, drink. I

In a dudgeon, minus hostess and tem

anil languorous with t.he odr of hot
house tlimvrs, and through the hum
of oulturud voice creep the faint
strains of uUtaut string instruments.
Mrs. Ktnnanl's face is serene and
slightly smiling, and her voice has Just

Martha Duhreuil ssid this la a ton
halt railing and half jeating.
Pierre raised his head without an
swering and twitched nervously th
page blackened by ink. It was the
twentieth time at least that his wife
had made such remark, and what
wa worae, he realized orrowfull
that she spoke the truth.
Once he had written a book of which
he had been proud, a novel launched
timidly by a publisher who made him
pay the cost of publication. That wa
an boor of ambitious dresms, long
sine ofcsstpattd by the grim reality.
"I will aaaesut to something In the
world," he had said resolutely. And
he believed it as did those who ad
mired him which ia to say his mother,
his sister and some of his friends who
read the book. Martha, his wife, wa
not one of these admirers, eihe told
him frankly again and agalnt "You
will amount to nothing."
He had no answer to make to Mar
tha's sneers, and he suffered keenly in
recalling the lucky days when they
walked together as lovers along paths
bordered by flowers and they made1
vows to each other and kissed. "You
will be a great man, my darling," she
hud said then. I

greatness made ,four years before.

days Hint had preceded their imirriuge,
and the deligiitH of their companion
ship during their honeymoon. And he
answered to her taunt:
"Ho much the wurse, my dear. Hut
we love each other, and that is enough."
He would not have cared for the plaud
it of the crowd if he had had the love
of Martha. Hut she broke into laugh
ter that frose Ills feeble smile.
"Oh, yes, indeed. That's well
enough. One can't liveon love. It is all
very well to suy so in the novels you
write or count on writing butin reul
lite things sre different."
When slimmer came they went to
the seashore, l'ierre securing au ap
pointment as the resort correspondent
of a newspaper. When he told her that
they were going, she said: "Ah, yuu
are a nice husband, after all." And she
smiled, but the smile was given as Id
At tho seashore she was soon the
belle of the place, and people forgot
about her husband, the reporter, who
remained in the shade. Some men were

"What of It?" she asked. "The man
amuses 111 w ith his compliments. Yon
know that I am an honest woman
Hut I need amusement."
Duhrvuil'e Buffering were intense.
The thought of that Imbecile who
was ever at Martha'e aide bruised his
heart. He wanted to strangle hiin in
the crowded ballroom; and longed
for a duel. Hut the man waa influ
ential and a litterateur of renown.
A duel between them would have
been grotesque and useless.
The count deigned to interest him
self a lilt! in Pierre.
"Let us write a piece, my young
friend," said he, "and I will give you
rcconiiiietHliitioiia. A man has talent,
when he has the sense to will a wife
as pretty aa yours."
"Yes, Pierre, why haven't you some
thing on ha ml?" said his wife.
One oening when be was in the
little room, he seated himself at hii
work table, while his wife, who had
danced too much, slept peacefully
He n sicd his bend on his hands and
thought sadly: "Yes, Martha's love
for me hna pasaed."
White paper waa In front of him.
It was one of those silent nights that
tempt a writer, a night of atars and
"I will try to work." he mused.
Kciemhly he took up his pen. He
wrote of tilings and thoughts such

Eatrsoraiwary Parties Takes Piece
Betwees Two slee, Ban
An elderly man and hia strapping son
stood in a railway station one day late
ly awaiting a train. The son was an
athletic-looking cbnp, who attracted
general attention by his magnificent
I proportions, says the Baltimore News.
Apparently he was going west. At all
events, when his train was called the
lookers-on fairly held their breaths
, w ith surprise, fur the younger man put
his arms around the elder one and
' kissed him fuirly and squarely on his
mustaehed month. Then he seurnea
through the gate, and the last view of
him showed him waving a farewell
from the back platform of the sleep
The remarkable thing about this lit
tle scene was that both participants in
It were Americans. One wouldn't have
been surprised at such a show of af
fection if they had been Germans or
Frenchmen or Italians; but it was an
unusual exhibition for practical, un
sentimental young America to make.
The average native of the United
States, should he return from Darkest
Africa after an absence of ten years,
would shake hnnda with his father just
as he would with the strange guest
within his gate, and he would ask both
affably to have a cigar. On the other
hand, his masculine relatives would
evince their interest and affection by
nsking him if his bout were on time.
Kissing in American families seems
to be looked upon ns a foolish cere
mony performed to propitiate the fem
inine members, and too undignified to
take place between the lords of cre
ation. There are times, of course,
when men do not consider osculation
either undignified or foolish but
that's another story.
EARL'S "LOAN" TO A FOOTPAD.
British Nobleman's Forced Contrlba

Although HO years old, the duchess
of Cleveland is a constant truvclerand
is noted for her conversational pow
ers, which age has not Impaired. She
can tell a story as well as her son, Lord
Husebtry. One of her favorite stories
is about her father, F.url Stanhope.
One night when the curl was walking
ulonc in tiie Kentish lanes a man
jumped out of the hedge, leveled a pis
tol, and dein.imk'd his purse.
"My good man, 1 have no money with
nie," said Lord Stanhope in his remark
ably slow tones. The robber laid hands
on his watch.
"No," Lord Stanhope went on, "that
watch you must not have; it w as given
to me by one I love; it is worth 100.
If you will trust me I will go back to
(lievening and bring a f 100 note and
place it in the hollow of that tree. I
cannot lose my watch."
The man did trust him. The earl did
bring the note. Years after Lord
Stanhope was at a city dinner, and
next to him sat a London lililerman of
irrent wealth, a man widely respected.
He and the carl talked of many things
und found each other mutually enter
taining. Next day Lord Stanhope re
ciivcd n letter, out of which dropped a
-t'loo note. "It was your lordship's
kind loan of this sum," said the note,
"that started me in life und enabled
me to huve the honor of Hitting next
to your lordship at dinner." A sti anjre
story. Hut the Stanhopes are a strange
race, and things happen to them that
never did or could occur to other peo
