"Thank you." returned Mary. "I waa
going to mother', grave, and thought per
bap you would like to accompany me."
"Oh. no," antd Klla. In her uaual drawl
ing tone, "I don't kuow aa I want to go.
I waa there Inat week, and aaw tbe mon
ument." , ,
"What monument?" aaked Mary, and
Klla replied:
"Why, dblu't you know that Mra. Ma
aon. or the town, or aomebody, had
bought-a monHutent, with motber'a and
fat her' a aud Frauky'a and Allle'a name
. on Itr - .. . . ...
Mary, hurrying on. aoon reached the
graveyard, where, a. Eli had aid, there
atood by her parent' graeea a large,
handaome monument. William Bender
waa tbe firm peraoa who rame Into her
mind, and a the thought of all that had
paaaed between them, and of thl tact
proof of hia affection, ahe aeated herself
among the tall graaa and Hewer which
grew upon her motber'a grare and buret
into tear. She had not eat fhere long
ere aba waa rouaed by the aound of a
footatep. looking up, ahe aaw before her
the young gentleman who the year pre
vious had viNlted her arbool In Itice Cor
ner. Beating bliimclf reapectfully by her
aide, be apoke of the three graves, and
a.ked If they were her friend who alept
there. There waa aomethlug ao kind and
affectionate lu bla voice and manner that
Mary could not reprcaa her tears, and,
.Hatching up her bonuet, which aba had
thrown aside, ahe hid her face la it and
again wept. ". t
For a time Mr. Stuart Buffered her to
weep, and then gently removed the ging
ham bonnet, and, holding her hand be
tween hia, he tried to divert her mind by
talking upon other toplca, aaklng her how
ahe had been employed during the year,
and appearing greatly pleased when told
that she had been at Mount lloljoke.
Observing at length that her eyea con
stantly rested upon the monument, he
apoke of that, praising its beauty, and
asking If It were her taste. ' v
"No," aald ahe. "I never saw It until '
to-day, and did not even know It was
here," ' i j , ' ; ; ; ;
"Someone wished to surprise you, I
dare say,' returned Mr. Stuart "It waa
manufactured In Boston, I see. Have
you friends there?"
Mary replied that ahe had one, a Mr.
Bender, to which Mr Htnnrt quickly re
joined. "Is It William Bender? I- hare
heard of him through our mutual friend.
Oeorge Moroland, whom you ' perhaps
have seen.". . , 4,, . .., .
Mary felt the earnest gaie of tbe large,
dark eyes which were fixed upon her
face, and coloriug deeply, she replied that
they came from England In the same ves
sel. 'V" f "A
"Indeedl" said Mr.' Stuart 'When I
return to the city shall I refresh hia mem
ory a little with regard to you?"
"I'd rather you would not," anawered
Mary. "Our paths in life are very dif
ferent; and he, of course, would feel do
Interest In me."
"Am I to conclude that you, too, feel
no Interest in him?" returned Mr. Stuart,
and agaia bis large eyea reseted ou
Mary's face with a curious expression.
But she made no reply, and, soon rising
op said It was time for her to go home.
Vacation was over, and 1galn In the
halls of Mount Holyoke was heard tho
tread of many feet, and the sound of
youthful voices as oue by one the pupils
came back to their accustomed places.
For a time Mary was undecided whether
to return or not, for much aa she desired
an education ahe could not help feeling
delicate about receiving It from a stran
ger, but Mra. Mason, to whom all her
thoughts and feelings were confided, ad
vised her to return, and accordingly the
first diy of the term found her again at
Mount Holyolte whore she was warmly1
welcomed , by her teaqhera and-ompans
ion's. Still, it did not seem like tho-olden
time, for Ida was not .there;' and Jenny's
mprry lnugh was gone, v . .'
Patiently and porseverlngly through the
year she studied, storing her mind with
useful knowledge i and when at last the
Annual oxnmlnn Hon eomo. jinl nu ! h;
senior class stood higher, or was grad
uated with more honor than herself. Mrs;
Mason, who was there, listened with all
a parent's prido aud fondness to her
adopted child, aa she promptly responded
to every question. But It was hot Mra.
Mason's presence alone which incited
Mary to do so well. Among the crowd
of spectators, she caught a glimpse of a
face which twice 'before ahe had seen
once in the school room at Rice Corner
and once In the graveyard at Chicopee.
Turn which way she would, she felt rath
er than saw how intently Mr. Stuart
watched her, and when at last the exer
cises were over, and she with others
arose to receive her diploma, ahe invol
untarily glanced in tbe direction whence
she knew bo sat. For an Instant their
eyea met, and la the expression of bis
she read an approval warmer than words
could have expresaed.
That night Mary sat atone In her room,
listening almost nervously to the sound
of every footstep, and half-starting up
if It cam near her door. But for certain
reasons Mr, Stuart did not think proper
to call, and while Mary waa confidently
expecting him be waa several miles on
hi way home.
In a day or two Mary returned to Chlo
opee, hut did not, like Klla, lay her books
aside and consider her education finished.
Two or three hours each morning were
devoted to atudy, or reading of aoae
kind. For several week nothing waa
allowed to Interfere with this arrange
ment, but at the end of that time th
quiet of Mrs, Mason's housst was dis
turbed by the unexpected arrival of Aunt
Martha and Ida,' who ratna up to Chico
pee for th purpose of luductng Mrs. Ma
son and Msry to spend the coming winter,
la Boston. At first Mrs. Mason hesltst
ed, but every objectims which either he
r Mary raised waa ao easily put aside
thatsha finally consented, saying she
would be read to go about tho middle of
' "Oome this wsy, Mary. I'll show you
your chamber. - It'a right here next to
mine," said Ida Seidcn, as on the evening
of her friend's arrival she led her up to
ft handsomely furnished apartment,
wblcb for many weeks had borne the title
of "Mary's room."
"Oh, how plesssnt!" waa Mary'a excla
mation, as she surveyed tha room In
which everything was arranged with auch
perfect taste;
Mary, waa too happy to speak, and,
dropping Into th easy-chair, ah burst
into tesrs. In a moment Ida. too, waa
seated in tbe same chair, with her arm
around Mary'a neck. Thn, as her own
eyes chanced to fall upon some vases, she
brought on of them to, Mary, saying;
"See, these are for yon a present front
oue who bad me present them with his
compliment to the little girl who nursed
him on board tho Windermere, and who
cried because hi called her ugly!"
Mary's heart was almost audible in Its
beating, aud her cheek took on th hue
of the cushions on which she reclined. Re
turning tbe vase to the mantelpiece, Ida
tame back to her side, and, bending close
to her face, whispered: "Cousin Oeorge
told nis of you years ago, when he first
came here, but I forgot all about it, and
when w were at Mount ITolyoke I never
suspected that you were the little girl he
used to talk ao nyicb about. But a few
days before he went away he reminded
me of It again, and then I understood why
he .was ao much interested in you.- I
wonder, you never told me you knew htm,
for, of course, you like him. You can't
help It."
, Mary only heard a part of what Ida
aald. "Just before he went away." Was
he gone, and ahould she not see htm af
ter all? A cloud gathered upon her brow,
and Ida, readily divining Its cause, re
plied. Tea, George Is gone. Either he or
father must go to New Orleans, and ao
Ueorge, of course, went Isn't It too
bad? I cried and fretted, but he only
pulled my ears, and said be ahould think
I'd be glad, for he knew we wouldn't
want a six-footer domineering over us, and
following us everywhere, as he would
surely do were he at home." ' '
Mary felt more disappointed than she
was willing to acknowledge, and for. a
moment she half-wished herself hack tn
Chicopee, but soon recovering her eiua
Dimity, sba .ventured to ask how long
George waa to be gone. f s 5
"Until Anril, I believe," said Ida; "but
anyway you are to atay nntil ha comes,
for Aunt Martha promised to keep you.
I don't know exactly what George said to
her about you, but they talked together
more than two houra," and she says you
are td take music lessons and. drawing
lessons, and all that , George Is very fond
of music li i..;! j i
The next morning between 10 and 11
the doorbell rang, and in a moment Jen
ny Lincoln, . whose f ather'a house was
Just opposite, came tripping into ho par
tor, ' She had lost lit a measure that io
tundity of person so offensive to her
mother, and It seemed to Mary that there
was a thoughtful expression on her face
never seen there before, but In all other
respects she was the same affectionate,
merry-hearted Jenny.
"I Just this mlnuto heard you were
here, and came over Just as I was," said
she. After asking Mary if she wasn't
sorry George had gone, and if she ex
pected to find Mr. Stuart she aald, "I
suppose you know Ella Is here, ' and
breaking everybody's heart of course.
She went to a concert with us last' even
ing, and looked perfectly beautiful. Hen
ry says she Is the handsomest girl he
ever saw, and ,1 do hope she'll make
something of him, but I'm afraid he Is
only trifling with her." f ; s ) r, , ,
If there was a person hi the world
whom Mary thoroughly detested It was
Henry Lincoln,' and her eyes sparkled
and. Cashed so Indignantly that Ida no
ticed it and secretly thought that Henry
Lincoln would for once find his match.
After a time Mary turned to Jenny, say
lug, "You haven't told me a word about
about William Bender. Is he well?"
. Jenny blushed deeply, and, hastily re
plying th hs-lVRS-the lRstt!me she "aw
him, started up, whispering in Mary'a
ear, "Oh, I've got so much to tell you
but I must go now." ' " ' y
Ida aqrompanied her to the door, and
asked why Rose, tod, did not call. In
her usual frank, open way Jenny answer
ed, "You know why. Rose Is so riueor."
Ida understood her, and replied, "Very
well; bul tell her that f she doesn't see
fit to notice my visitors I certainly shall
not be polite to hers." ,
- This message had the desired effect, for
Rose, who waa dally expecting a Miss
King from Philadelphia, felt that nothing
would mortify her more than to be neg
lected by Ida, who waa rather a leader
among the young fssbionables. Accord
ingly, after a long consultation with her
mother, she concluded It best to call up
on Mary. In th course of th afternoon,
chancing to be near the front window,
she aaw Mr. ridden' carriage drive
away from his door with Ida and her
"Now Is my time," thought she; and
wltboot a word to her mother or Jenny
she threw on her bonnet and shawl, and
lu her tbln French slippers stepped
serous the street and raog Mr. Selden'a
doorbell. Of course sho was "so dlssp
polntml not to find tbe young ladies at
home," and, leaving her card for them,
tripped back highly pleased with her own
Meantime Ida and Mary were enjoying
their ride about the city, until, coming
Suddenly upon an organ grinder aad
monkey, tbe aplrlted horses became
frightened and rsn, upsetting th car
riage and dragging It some distance. For
tunately Ida wss only bruised, but Mary
received a severe cut upon her head,
which, With the fright caused her to
fslut A young msa who was passing
down the street, and saw the accident
Immediately cam to the rescue; and
when Mary a wok to consciousness Billy
Bender wss supporting her and gently
pushing back from her fact the thick
braids of her long hair. ' ' ' " '
"Who la she? Who is she?" asked th
eager voices, of the group around; but
oo one answered until a young gentle
man, issuing from one of tho fashions
tie saloons, came blustering up, demand
ing "what the row waa,"
Upon seeing Ida, his manner changed
instantly, and he ordered th crowd to
"stand back," at the ssme time forcing
bis way forward until he caught a eight
of Mary's fsce,
nUewr BiltlTsjd he."' "your "old
flame, the pauper. Isn't It?" .
It was fortunste for Henry Lincoln
that Billy Bender's arms were both in
use, otherwise he might have measured
bis length upon the sidewalk. As it was,
Billy frowned angrily upon him, and lit a
fierce whisper bade Jiim beware how he
used Miss Howard's1 name. By this time
tbe horse were caught another carriage
procured, and Mary, still supported by
Billy Bender, was carefully lifted Into it
ami borne back to Mr. Seidcn a houae.
Many of Ida'a friends, hearing of the
accident flocked In to aee and to inquire
after the young lady who waa injured.
Among the first who called was Lizzie
Upton from Chicopee. rOn her way homa
she stopped at Mrs. Campbell's, where
she wss immediately beset by Ella, to
know "who the beautiful young lady waa
that Henry Lincoln had ao heroically
saved from a violent death dragging her
out from under th horse heels!'
Lizzie looked at her a moment in sur
prise, and then replied, "Why, Miss
Campbell, is it possible you don't know
It was your own sister?"
It wss Henry Lincoln himself who had
given Ella her information, without how
ever, telling tbe lady'a name; and now,
when she teamed that 'twaa Mary, she
was too much surprised to answer, and
Lizzie continued.' "I think you are labor
ing under a mistake. It wa not Mr.
Lincoln who saved your sister's life, but
a young law student, whom you perhaps
have seen walking with George More
land." Ella replied that ahe never saw Georga
Morelabd, as he .left Boston before h
came; and then as she did not seem at
all anxious to know whether Mary waa
much Injured or not, Lizzie soon took ber
leave. Long after she was gone Ella sat
alono in the parlor, wondering why Hen
ry should tell her such a falsehood, and
if he really thought Mary beautiful. Poor,
simple Ella! She waa fast learning to
live on Henry Lincoln's smile, to believe
each word that he aald; to watch-nervously
for hia coming, and to weep if he
stayed away.

Mr. Meredith Tell About the School
for Farm ira' Wlvee tn Mltlneeota. i
What the West la doing lu the way
of training girls to live happy Uvea on
farms waa very ably shown at Hunt
ington hall, Boston, recently by Mrs.
Virginia C. Meredith, preceptress of the
school of agriculture of Minnesota uni
versity. Mrs. Meredith has herself conducted
a successful stock farm for many years,
and she believes thoroughly ,io the
farm life for young people. I V i f .
"The farm home," ahe said, "is to
my mind the Ideal home, and I am
glad to say the thought In our school
is always to educate the girl for the
life she will have to live.
"At first we had only boya In the
school, but when these, noticing that
their sisters and sweethearts needed
to learn Just what they were learn
ing, begged us. to tnko girls, 'too, we
did so, nd now for four -years we
have been training farmers' daugh
ters to make happy farm homes. -
"Our glrla study, elde by side with
the boys the different' breeds of live
stock and the. various developments
of pin nt life. A farmer's wife needs
to know how to tell a shorthorn from a
longhorn, and what season Is best for
planting com.
."We have been hearing In the past
much about 'the man's desire to get
away from the farm. The reason for
his restlessness lies in the dissatisfac
tion of his women folk with farm life.
They needed to be taught that It was
Interesting to make a farm home. ...
"We give our girls special .work
adapted to women In the home, such
as cookery, which extends through the
three years, dairy chemistry, and plant
life. Butter-making is not drudgery
to the girl who understands the why
of It, and sewing Is rapidly ceasing to
become a lost art now that girls see
thai putteiTiS '7 &tv'-. C-OwpfclnMiHiuie
things and not Chinese puzzles.
"The girl Is taught, too, about tex
tiles, a most Interesting subject from
the farmer's standpoint; and she at
tends lectures on household art in
which suitability is shown to be tbe
desideratum of a purchase of furniture.
"The application made In our school
of mechanical drawing that of design
ing model farmhouses will have a
great Influence on the coming farm
home of Minnesota. When the present
generation build houses they will be
convenient ones."

Safety iMML
fit John's, N. F., June 28. The
Orient Steam Navigation Company's'
steamship Lusitania, from Liverpool,
June 18, for Montreal, having 300
passengers on board, was wrecked
last night off Cape Ballard. .
The Lusitania was bound round
Cape Race for Montreal with a large
cargo and a shipload of passengers.
She mistook her course in a dense fog,
and went ashore near Renews, 20 miles
north of Cape Race, licfore daybreak.
The ship ran over a reef, and hangs
against a cliff. , The passengers, who
are mostly emigrants, were panic
stricken. They stampeded and fought
for the boats, but were overcome by the
officers and crew The rougher ele
ments among the passengers used
knives. The women and children
were first landed, and the men fol
lowed. The crew stood by the ship.
A heavy sea was running, but at
latest advices the Lusitania was hold
ing her own. It is thought that she
will prove a total wreck.
The passengers of tha Lusitania
had a terrible experience. The first
knowledge they had of the disaster
was when, owing to the ship scraping
over the rocks, they were hurled from
their berths by the shock. A scene
of great excitement prevailed. Three
hundred people were clamoring to
escape, while the crew tried to pacify
them and launch the boats. The
male passengers in their attempt to
seize the boats, trampled the women
under foot and fought the crew with
knives. Some of the more cool head
ed of the passengers assisted the crew
in the efforts to get out the boats.
The women and ' children, almost
nude, were pulled up the cliffs by the
coast people. v
The unhappy passengers, after
shivering for hours on the hilltop,
tramped weary miles to reach the
houses of the fishermen, where they
are now sheltered. Previous to reach
ing the cliffs, the passengers passed
two hours of terrible anxiety on the
wreck. ' As a furious rain storm and
heavy sea raged all night, it is feared
the Lusitania will be a total wreck.
.The last reports received here said
the steamer was breaking up, that
her forehokU were full of water and
that her cargo was being salvaged.
There is hope of saving the effects of
the passengers, as, where possible.
they were stored above decks. ,
Pelksmca and Strikers Fought and Many
Wert Injured.
Rochester, N. Y., June 28. One
thousand striking laborers had a
brisk encounter with the police today,
in which 11 policemen and 20 rioters
were injured. The rioters set out, as
several times before, too drive off the
laborers working on street improve
ments. At Mill and Commercial
streets they encountered 50 laborers
employed by the Rochester Gas &
Electric company in digging a trench,
and drove them from the trench.
The workers sought refuge in the
power house of the company, and the
police undertook to disperse the mob.
The police reserves were drawn up in
a platoon of 50 across the street, and
upon orders advanced with drawn
clubs upon the mob. Immediately
the air was filled with bricks, stones
and wood, and shovels and picks in
the hands of the strikers were used
freely. Amid the melee a shot rang
out and the sergeant commanding the
platoon ordered the police to fire over
the heads of the strikers. This had
the desired effect. The strikers scat
tered and the police chased them
through the streets to the City Hall
Park, where they were held awaiting
action by the mayor.
Police reinforcements were hurried
to the scene of the riot, but their ser
vices were not required. The injuries
sustanied by several of the policemen
are of a serious nature. The hurts of
the rioters were mostly scalp wounds
inflicted by the officers' clubs.
A Second Cloudburst -
Bluefields, W. Va., June 28. An
other destructive storm swept the

City Fall of Setdlcrs and Officers Returning
Tien Tsin, July 2. The city of
Tien Tsin is now more crowded than
ever. . Officers of all nation are here
en route for their homes, and the
hotels are placing cot in every avail
able place. Apartments have been
prepared at the University of Tien
Tsin for Prince Chuan and his suite
of 40, who will remain there for three
days before leaving for Germany to
make formal apology for the murder
of Baron von Ketteler.
Mr. Denby, who, when the foreign
troops arrived, waa appointed by the
Chinese Merchants' Company to pro
tect its property, says the company,
in its claim against the United States
government, did not use the word
"loot" against the marines, but mere
ly held them responsible. The
greater part of the company's proper
ty consisted of rice, which waa after
wards distributed under orders from
the British and American generals to
assist those in need. Mr. Denby
thinks the company's cliara should
have been added to the indemnity as
legitimate expenditure. Other mer
chants say the company never had
300,000 taels' worth of property here.
It is pointed out that the company
stored three boxes of valuables with
the chartered bank before the trouble
began and did not withdraw these
until October, and that, consequently,
it is quite improbable any jewels
were left to be looted. Moreover, the
place was thoroughly gone through
by local looters before the allied forces .
arrived. It would be legally impossi
ble to hold any portion of the reliev
ing force responsible for anything but
the rice and coal, which were used as
a military necessity, to feed Chinese
coolies who were forced to labor and
also those who were without means of
Narrow Escape of Passengers In aa Expr
. 1 Train. ' ""i
Baltimore, July 2. The roof of the
Union Railroad tunnel in the eastern
section of the city, used and con
trolled by the Pennsylvania Railroad,
caved in shortly before 2 o'clock this
morning. It is supposed that a de
fect in the arch of the tunnel caused
the accident.
A narrow escape from death or ser
ious injury was experienced by tho
passengers and crew of an express
'train which was caught by the falling
debris in the tunnel. As far as can
be learned, the avalanche of earth
and rocks caught the rear express
car, which was immediately In front
of the passenger cars. The train was
not running rapidly and the jar was
not . severe. . The , engineer quickly
brought his train to a full stop and
word was sent from a signal tower to
the Union station. A yard engine
was sent into the tunnel and the
thinly filled passenger coaches were
drawn back to Union station without
the occupants being aware of the dan
ger through which they had passed.
On of Passengers Died of Bubonic Plagu
at Nagasaki.
Port Townsend, Wash., July 2.
The United States transport Kintuck
arrived yesterday morning from
Nagasaki with 200 soldiers on board,
and is held in the stream pending the
decision of Surgeon General Wyman,
whether she will be sent to Diamond
Point quarantine station. While
at Nagasaki, a case of bubonic plague
developed on the Kintuck, and the
victim was taken ashore, where he
died. The vessel was fumigated and
detained 10 days in quarantine at
Nagasaki, and then allowed to pro
ceed on her voyage to this city. No
new case developed during the voyage,
but before allowing her to enter Dr.
M. H. Foster, United States quaran
tine officer, deemed it best to commu
nicate with the authorities at Wash
ington, and pending a reply, the ves
sel is anchored in the stream with the
yellow flag flying. Communication
with her is forbidden.
Work Suspended In Many Factories. Pros
tration In Boston.
Boston, July 2. There has been
but slight diminution in the inten
sity of the heat throughout New Eng
land today, and in some localities

cessary to suspend work in . many

rible heat. Many persons were pros-
trated by the heat in various sections
