"Don't be foolish, child. Mr. Watts

In answer to this Lilla only rose from

hat muttering: "Yes, I'll see," and dis
appeared through a door that led to her
own room.
Mrs. Spragne did not follow her daugh

was going to do, and that was to write a

That little projectile which Lllia fired
t her Banc very nearly ended the life
f Randolph Watts; at least so Watts
aid. lie could not think, or he might
have seen an easy way out of the horri
ble msse Into which be had got himself.
His transgression stared him in the face,
lie had run away from Lilla twice and
had even congratulated himself on his
cape from her and chuckled over It se
cretly. How we be to convince her that
hla evasion was not an evidence of dis
loyalty to her!
It was only three day before Christ
inas and WatU bad promjsed himself
that, whatever future Christmas might
have In store for him, that Christmas
should be the happiest he had known, so
far at least.
That night he lay awake until he waa
exhausted. Next morning he got up and
went to his business mechanically.
The first ray of comfort came with his
cousin, Mrs. Sucher the same whom
Lilla had spoken of a a "frump."
"Why, Randolph," said Mrs. Sucher,
"it is am, ovek how," said liixa.
as she entered the office, "what Is the
matter with you? Have yon been iH?"
"She saw me," -was all Randolph could
"Tea. I came to speak to yon again
about It I forjrot "
"Oh, lt'a no use now, Cousin Mattie.
She will not 'receive me or my letters'
"Pooh! Did she tell yon sor .
"She wrote to me I mustn't go there."
"Look here, Randolph," said the eom
mon sense matron, "this Is all nonsense.
If Lilla Spragne won't receive me, she
must be a ninny "
"Don't say that!"
"I will say that But anyhow, her
mother will see me. I am going now to
call on Mrs. Spragne. And now, look
here, about this bracelet.
"Shall we go on with that?" said
Watts, with a faint smile.
"Of course we shall, stupid. Higglns
says he has tried to set the watch with
the face In, as yon wanted it and he
can t make any better job of it than
Moore could. Now I think I'd better go
and take It back to Moore's and tell them
to set It with the face out, don't your"
"Very well," said Watts, with almost
childish resignation.
"And then the miniature can go Inside
wltb the original crystal over it ehr
"Very well"
"And then I'm going straight to Mrs.
Spragne a.

First to Higglns Mrs. Sucher went
where she took possession of a remark
ably pretty and uncommon gold bracelet
a tiny old-fashioned watch and the min
latnre. Then to Moore's, where she left
the bracelet, the watch and the mlnla
tare. Then to Mrs. Sprsgue's.
As Mrs. Sucher entered Mrs. Spragne's
private and Individual sitting room she
heard a whisk and rustle of skirts and a
door closed behind a rapidly retreating
"Lilla not welir said Mrs. Sucher,
with an Incredulous laugh. "Too bad.

ion must have laid yourself out to
be generous," said Mrs. Sprague.
"I am generous. I give my time nnd
labor to help other people give presents.
That brings me to the object of this visit.
Can you keep a secret?"
'Yes, said Mrs. Spragne, "and I nm
burning with curiosity. So make haste
and tell me."
"Oh, then yon know?"
"You were with Randolph Watts when
be ran away from Lilla yesterday. How
was it?"
You promise not to tell her? to keep
It tor three days? Very well. You see,
he wants to give her a bracelet he had
mad for her, with a very pretty motto
on it In enamel. Then be wants to give
her a beautiful little watch that belonged
to his poor mother, and be has bad a lit
tle miniature of his mother made to fit
la behind the watch. First be took the
watch to Moore's. That was the day he
ran up against Lilla, when he bad tb
whole package In hla band, and ' was
afraid ahe would ask him, and ran. Ve
tcrday, just as he was taking me to hold
a consultation on that wonderful brace
let, we saw Lilla coming along. I sal
to htm: 'Randolph, If ahe meets us she'
want to walk along with us, and thea
the whole plot is ruined. Let's turn down
here before she sees us.' But It seems
she saw us after all."
On Christmas morning. In spite of
many earnest assurances from her moth'
er that that morning would bring a clear-ing-up
It all her trouble, Lilla was as ter
ribly cross and out of tune with the
chimes aa she bad been for tour days
past. Moreover, she a wok with a head'
She found stocking tied to the head
of her bed, as she had expected, aud
took the stocking down and opened It
mechanically. Then she found the brace
let with a scrap of paper In which. In her
mother a writing, were the words, "Press
the spring and look Inside, behind the
watch." And when ah looked a lovely,
loving face looked back at her a face
that was very like Randolph Watts' own,
And at the bottom of the stocking
away at the very toe was another pa
per which said, "The bracelet ought to
tell you why I ran away. R. W."
Then she laid her head and bracelet
on her pillow, and wet both bracelet and
pillow with tears until her headache waa
all gone.
A Happy New Vear.
Delight and pathos are Inextricably
mingled with the thought of New lean
day, says the Boston Watchman. It
only a conventional point of time; any
other would do aa well. Every day closes
an old year and begins a new one. but for
all that we cannot help feeling that this
day, which Is agreed upon throughout
Christendom for the beginning of a new
year. Is somewhat unique. The pathos
comes from the review of the past, and
from the sense that another notch has
been cut for us on the stick of time. The
delight arises from the anticipation of
the new and better experiences of the
year to come. What interest any rational
person could hare in having his fortune
told is a mystery. The test and charm of
life consist largely in the fact that each
day Is like a new page In the story. If
you wish to enjoy yonr book yoa do not
whtn it Is half read, turn to the closing
chapter to discover how It turns out Yoa
do not thsnk anyone for telling yon the
plot It Is so with life. There la In
finite satisfaction in each day's contribu
tion to the record. Yon do not wsnt to
anticipate it It would be a curse If any
one could tell yon just what the year
would bring. It Is just aa reasonable to
suppose that the year will be happy as
sad. Who can tell? Who can control
that? Are we not in the bands of Ood?
That is the reason for A happy New
Year day.

says the report, bat between 40 and 60

The report shows a falling off in the
number of cases of salmon canned dur
ing the past season on the Columbia as
com rami with 1898. This is in part
accounted for by the increased 'number
of pounds of salmon handled by the
cold-storage concerns.

R. G. Dun A Co.'s weekly review of
trade says; The approach of now
rear usually bringa so much of heal
tancy in business that the small shrink
age this year is surprising. Probably
never before have the productive forces
oi the country been so largely coverud
by contracts at this date, inducing
employment and profit far into the
coming year. This results not from
any mere speculative excitement, but
from actual demands for consumption
running lar beyond the producing ca
pacity hereafter, and pushing it to re
markable expansion. The increase in
foreign trade has been
pared with the increase of $24,000,000
in payments through clearing-houses
For the week the payments have been
80.3 per oent larger than last year, and
88.1 per cent larger than in 1892.
