A rap at the door and a call from
Henry that the carriage waa waiting
ended tbe conversation, and, throwing
on their cloaka and hooda, the girls de
scended to the halj, when-, with nnususi
tenderness, Henry caught up hia Invalid
slater, and, drawing the veil closely over
her fsec, csrrled her to tha covered
sleigh, so that ber feet might not touch
tha Irr walk.
"What? Itose Lincoln here?" exclaimed
half a dosen voices as Itoaa bounded
Into the dreaslng room.
"Yea, Hose Lincoln la here," ahe re
plied, gayly, dlveating herself of her
wrapping. "I'm not going to die juat

pointed to a bright, round spot which
burned her cheek.
A youug girl, whose family had one

England plague, conaumptlon, ahuddered
and turned away, for to her eye the
glow which Itose called health was but
tbe hectic bloom of death.
"How besutlfui she UT aald more than

entered the brilliant drawing-room. And
truly Itoae waa beautiful that night, but
like the gorgeous fotisge of the fading

The rich silken braids of her luxuriant
hair were confined at the back of her
finely formed head with a golden arrow,
which, with the exception of a plain band
of gold on each wrist, waa the only or

troduction to the gay world, but so ken
wss her perception of what waa polite
and proper that none would ever have
suspected It; and yet there waa about
her something ao fresh and unstudied,
that she had hardly entered the room
ere many were struck with her easy, un
affected mannera, so different from tne
practiced airs of the city bellea.
Ella wateuea ncr narrow ly, wniapering
aside to Henry how sorry she felt for
poor Mary, ahe was so verdant, and real

awkward, for 'twould niortiry ner to

how many people Ida la introducing her
"Of course, why shouldn't Bhe?" asked
Henry; and Ella replied:
"I don't know it aeems ao funnyj to
see Mary here, doesn't it?"
Before Henry could answer, a young
man of his acquaintance touched his
shoulder, saying: "Lincoln, who Is thnt
splendid-looking girl with Miss Selden?
I haven't soon a finer face In Boston for
many a day."
"That?, Oh, that'a Miss Howard, from
Chlcopeo. An Intimate friend of our
family. . Allow me tho pleasure of In
troducing you," and Henry walked away,
leaving, Ella to the tender mercies of
Rose, who, aa one after another quitted
her aide and went over to the "enemy,"
grew very angry, wondering If folks were
bewitched, and hoping Ida Seldon "felt
better, now that she'd made to many
notice her protege' "
Later In tho evening, William Bender
came, and Immediately Jenny began to
talk to him of Mary, and the lmpresalon
ahe was making. Placing her hand
familiarly upon his arm, as though that
were Ha natural resting place, she led
him toward a group, of which Mary
aeemed tho center of attraction. Near
her stood Henry Lincoln, redoubling hia
flattering compliments In proportion aa
Mary grew colder and more reserved In
her manner toward him. Silly and con
ceited as he waa, he could not help no
ticing how differently ahe received Will
iam Bender from what Bhe had himself.
"But all In good time," thought lw,
glancing at Ella, to see how Bhe waa af-
cent to make a general fall in the
temperature. Local thunder storms
will give temporary relief, but
weather bureau officials say that per
manent relief will not come until
for his nee-lect. Accordingly, when Ella
returned to tbe drawing room be offered

Seattle, July 5. The whaler Bala

death. Through the bravery of the
officers all escaped to shore.
The Balaena was on a voyage to the
Arctic. Bhe was provisioned for 30

Southeast cape, St. Lawrence island,
where she struck a rock. The cap
tain immediately ordered the boats
out. The whaler seemed to have
been bung on the rock, and, although
the waves were pounding her terribly,
she did not founder. In a very short
time the boats were manned and the
crew started for the shore. The sea
was so high that it was impossible for
the boats to keep together, but they
