married. Most of the huds stay on

but considering how many there

the personality of the (lower lover
who did the picking.
France .Marvin's father had no
money, but he held n place in so
ciety by force of intellect and family.
There are not as many of those
cases aa there used to be. The girl
was a beauty, If a novel writer were
tellintf about her he would say she
wan regal. James I'arker, stock
broker, was not a novel writer, but
lie thought Frances was regal, never
theless, lie had a thought of this
kind from the moment he saw her.
I'arker followwl Miss Marvin's move
ments as closely as he did the tape
In the stock ticker, lie was a mem
ber of every club in sight, and he
drove and rode, and did all the other
things that a man of wealth in so
ciety does when he knows how.
James I'arker was a catch. Every
body said so, and the fact was pretty
strongly impressed upon the Marvin
family, bar Marvin pere, who didn't
care whether I'arker was a catch or
not, for Frances was to be allowed
to make her own cholro. I'arker be
came the girl's shadow. lie paid
court, however, unobtrusively and
with perfect tact. Franeea was flat
tered a bit by the attentions of this
man, for whom all the other pirls
hud made a cast, to use a piscatorial
simile, and had failed to get a strike.
Now, there was a well as James
I'arker one John Meadowcroft.
Meadowcroft had a big truck farm
out beyond lowmamille. Curious
thing, but Meadowcroft worked his
farm himself, lie was a big fellow,
something more than a trille awk
ward, but with a line head and a
good face. He had an education and
no capital etcept that which was
represented by some acres of onion,
carrot and potato beds and some
hundreds of square feet of glass, un
der which the roses and carnations
reached perfection when the winter
blasts how! and the optimistic snow
bunting whistles In the fields. John
Meadowcroft was a gardunte of the
Amherst agricultural college. Just
what had turned htm to farming peo
ple did not generally understand. A
good guess would have made it that
Meadowcroft loved the country bet
ter than the town and took to gar
dening so that he rould live at all
times where he could smell the soil
and see some cloudH besides those of
smoke go drifting by.
One summer day a number of
young people drove out beyond llow
maimllc to see the massed color nnd
beauty of a great field of dowers,
which the newspapers had made pic
tures of and written about. It was
"the thing" to go out to that spot of
loveliness during that month of blos
soms. It was there that France
Marvin first saw John Meadowcroft,
farmer, lie hail a pretty place for n
home. It was naturally pretty, and
John Meadowcroft knew how to en
hance Its uUrnctivciicss. James
I'arker was there that clay, and be
ing a man of acumen ami worldly
wisdom he saw that Meadowcroft,
the farmer, thought that Frances
Mnrvlu was more to lie admired than
any tlower of his field; hue them all
though he dlil, from the tiniest blos
som to the big tluuuting peony.
Meadowcroft had friends in the
city They were of some of the good
old New Kncliind stock, who in their
earlier days had known his father
nnd mother. Meadowcroft had a way
of overcoming obstacles. His friends
say that some day he will In- growing
green chrysanthemums, and will do
it without f ling the earth with
dyes. At any rate, he met Miss Mar
vin again and then again. She was
rather amused than otherwise at the
attentions of this "farmer man," as
Iter mother called him. There Is some

them when the shopping was done.
It was one of those afternoons when
the sun and the gem-nil brightness
of things can make even a walk in
the smoky streets of Chicago pleas
ant. I'uiver suggested that they
walk home. When they had reached
the corner of .South Wuter street
their way us usual wus barred by
great sacks and boxes. I'urker had
had one or two reasons of lute to
actually look with just a suspicion
of jealous apprehension at a certain
farmer from llowmaiiville. He could
not forbear pointing with his cane,
with u sort of a smile to make it
appear that he considered it in the
light of a Joke, at some placards
which uppeared above the sacks and
boxes at the South Water street cor
ner. The pointing was hardly neces
sary, for Frances Marvin's quick eyes
bud caught their signliicance. This is
what they read:

I'eople nil had it flxod that Frances '
Marvin was to marry James I'arker.'
The girl half-way thought so herself.
She knew that several times I'arker
was on the point of a declaration.
"Not yet," the girl had said to her
self and she had averted diplomatic
ally the crisis, though she was he-1
ginning to think one day it would
come and she would any yes. Her
mother urged her and bur own
knowledge told her of an easy future J
us the wife of a man who had what
was needful and plenty more. I
One day the board of malingers of
the Mortimer Fierce Hospital for ('rie
pies held a meeting. Funds were need
ed and a number of the young wom
en of society who were Interested in
the charity agreed to ask some of those
whom thev knew were well able to
give to help along the cause. Frances
.Marvin was one of the soliciting com
mittee. I'erhaps the mother was w iser
than most in her generation, for she
suggested to Frances that they ask
James I'arker for a conl rilmtlnn. She
and her mother went down-town und
at the mother's suggestion went into
the office of James I'arker. stockholder
Mr. I'arker wasn't In. Tlie olliee boy,
who was new and not up to snuff, nid
that Mr. I'arker was in his other oflicc
further down the street. "You'll find
him on the third floor at the corner,"
said the boy.
Mrs. Marvin and her daughter did
not know that James I'arker had two
offices. They reached the third floor
of the corner buildJng. It wns a dingy
place and on a rather dirty glass door
appeared "J. I'arker, Loons." They
entered. T'here wns an ante-room wittt
two smaller rooms beyond sepnrated
from the first by a glass partition. A
boy told them to sit down and Mr.
I'arker would be at leisure in a few
minutes. Then they couldn't help
It they heard a conversation. The
voices were those of a man and a wom
an, nnd the mnn's voice was thnkof
James I'arker. The conversation ran
like this; "I can't help it, uinilnm; ten
per cent, a month is what you ngreed
to pny and what you are bound to pay
by this writing. You have nlrcady paid
me, you say, an amount equal to the
principal. That has nothing to do
with It. If you can't pay you shouldn't
"We are in trouble at home, Mr.
I'arker, and I wish you could be a bit
easy with us."
"You should huve thought of nil that
before, mnduin. This debt is legiti
mate, and the Inw can't pick n hole
in it. I want nnd must have, my money
or your furniture goes."
There was something like n dry sob
from the Inner room. With a common
impulse Mrs. Marvin and her daughter
rose and left the room, though not
till each hud placed a card before the
olllce boy. saying, softly: "Tell him
we were here." When they reached
the street and were hurrying along as
though to get away from a neighbor
hood of contamination, the girl mild:
"Mother, I have heard of such things,
thut men In business made much of
their money In other businesses of
which only a small part of the world
knew anything. I illil not know that
Mr. I'arker was one of these."
Some time after this a little party of
people went to How main ille to see
the flowers. John Meadowcroft met
the visitors at the gate. He had a
wounded squirrel in his hand. There
was a tender solicitude In his eye as
he examined, the little aiiiiual and at

thought of something else that had
'lappeiicd in a down town olllce not
long before. Somet hiug like a t houcht
of comparison went through her mind,
and not even the fnct that a faint odor
of onions came from the ncrcs to-vond

therefore, that when the twenty-fifth

that of Pius IX. was leaa than seven

has been nearly 2 years.
Leo XIII. has already curpasKed all

In order to call attention to the

a few instances which occurred at
Jackson llnlc, Wyoming. The nuin

in a single season. I.nrge numhers
of elk come down into the valley
in Jackson Hole during the winter;
hut that district is only n smnll por
tion of the winter range for game.
Hundreds of men have testified thnt
they have seen elk during the win
ter in the last stages of starvation;
nnd these men know, from personal
observation, that a large nuinlier of
elk die every winter, especially
where the summer range of gnme
has Leon too closely graed hy do
mesticated animals, and where, in
eouseipienee, the game has been
driven down to lower altitudes early
in the fall. Whenever, as is fre
quently the case, carcasses are found
huddled together in a sheltered spot
where the available food material -
siu-li as hark, twigs of trees and tull
dead weeds has been Completely de
vi tired, the ev idence is ovrrw helming
that the animals died of starvation.
