Oh! here, beneath thii roof of grtca,
I throw me down sod dream again
The golden dreame of what has been
And future harvests yet to gain!
The wheat wavea in the field Close by,
An apple, ripened ere Its time.
Drops from the tree, the sun's great eye
Seeks through the leaves, and, as I
The birds weave to and fro and slpg
The very songs I would declare.
And now and then the branches swing
Stirred gently by a wandering air.
The binders, clicking in the wheat,
The whistle of a passing train,
The distant noises of the street.
Are to my song a low refrain.
To-day! To-day I rest at ease
And pick the golden fruits that grow
In solitude on twigs of peace
The fruits that only dreamers know.

JkV dullness of Sunday afternoon.
44 In Mrs. Maloney's sitting room
there was the odor of strong tea, and
that meant that Mrs. Burns and Mrs.
Ryan had stayed over after mass for
dinner and were having a friendly cup
of tea before they started homeward
with their husbands. The men them
selves were hanging about the vlllaga
somewhere. There hnd been silence for
some minutes a heavy, thoughtful
silence after Mrs. Maloney's last re
mark. The good women were relatives,
cousins in the first degree, and Mrs.
Maloney had been talking of their ma
ternal uncle.
"It's a perfect shame," she had said.
"Uncle Martin has a good deal of
mouey saved up, I am sure. He won't
spend it himself and he won't give
anybody else a chance at it, and, like
as not. when he dies, he'll leave It to
Father Shauahan for something or
other that he happens to take into his
head. Martin's getting dreadful pious
in Uis old days, since he's bsen living
alone In the little bouse."
- "He hasn't It in any bank at Falr
brooke," said Mrs. Ryan, "because Pat
has asked."
"Like as not." Mrs. Burns said, "he
has it hid In the house somewhere.
He's that queer about It, you never
can till.. He's always wishing he had
money enough for a trip to Chicago.
But the Lord knows that it Is he that
could go If he wanted to. Not a chick
ntr a chili to hold him."
M.s. Mabney looked thoughtfully at
the speaker. "I saw him get In with
the McGoverns after mass. He was
going out to the farm to dinner with
them. We might walk over to the
house, and if he's In, give him a little

"The key Is under the doormat,"
sa d Mrs. Burns.
And over to Uncle Martin's the gotd
ladies we;it. He was not at home,
and the key was under the mat. The
boube, though generally cl?an, had th?
air of being managed by a man, which
women see at once. The pipe was laid
away with the cups and saucers, ami
a pair of shoes stood prominently on
cne of the chairs. But none of them
had any eyes for these incongruities
t)-day. ,
"How much," said Mrs. Maloney,
"do you think he might have?" as she
drew out a drawer of the old bureau
and begau going through it.
"A thousand or so," sail Mrs. Burns,
from the depth of an old rag bag.

"I'shaw!" Bald Mrs. Maloney, skep
tically. The next morning, however, Mrs.
Maloney was to have more exact
knjwledge as to the amount of Uncle
Martin's money. Her husband, who
was the Tillage countable, along with
be'.ng the biggest storekeeper, came
In to her exii;edly.
Uncle Martin was Just in the store.
and he says somebody has stolen his
money. He says there were signs of
somebody being In his place when he

thinks he ran find out whn It was."
Mrs. Maloney was skimming the
soup, and she almost dropped the
ladle. After a few moments she
managd to control herself enough to
"How much does be say be had?"
On hundred and fifty doll :rs. I
would have tbouebt he'd have had
more." But Mrs. Maloney made no
protest. She was suddenly tbankfnl

Adurol Developer.-Adurol without alkali gives an excellent developer.
Water, sulphite of soda and adurol form the working solution, which gives
excellent shadows without the slightest fog. Only wlieu under-exposed, the
usual quantity of alkali should be added to the developer. The picture ap

mide of potassium Is a jrood retarder for adurol. In the collodion-emulsion
process adurol has the great advantage of hydrochlnone, preventing the
settlement of any Impure runtter at less pure places. A great advantage is
also the strong Insensibility of the materials toward the carbonic acid of the
atmosphere. I'hoto. Times.

consisting of equal parts of a solution, of green oxide of iron ammonia and

Recegnized Iry'ope Leo as Patriarch of Venice June 15, 1S93
Elected Tope Au-4- 190a
The new head of the Catholic Church, Cardinal, Joseph Sarto, who has
taken the title of Plus X, ascends the Tapal throne at the same age as his
predecessor, Pope Leo XIII. He brings to that exalted office the same noble
qualities as those of the departed Pontiff. He has been distinguished for
his learning, the purity of his life aid his liberal ideas, so that there will
probably be little change In the policy of the Holy See, either In Us Internal
administration or In Its broader relations to the world at large.
The election of Cardinal Sarto, since 1893 the patriarch of Venice, was
somewhat of a surprise. His name was not prominently mentioned among
those who, lu the popular estimate, wore likely to be chosen. He was men
tioned, however, as a compromise candidate.
The election apparently gives world-wide satisfaction. The church In
France and Germany favors the choice and here In the United States the
leaders of the hierarhcy say that no more acceptable person could be se
lected. Thus the new Pontiff enters upon his duties amll general expression
of good will.
Cardinal Sarto was born at Rlese, Province of Venice, June 2, 1835. In
1803 he was created Cardinal and Patriarch of Venice. He has had a wide
reputation for his learning, especially In ecclesiastical affairs, and has been
noted as a good organizer and administrator qualities which are requisite In
Papal affairs. He Is a liberal patron of the arts, as so many of ills prede
cessors have been, and despite his 08 years is a man of energy and activity.
Cardinal Sarto belonged to the ecclesiastical congregations of bishops and
regulars, sacred rites, Indulgences and sacred relics. He enjoyed great pop
ularity In his diocese. He is honored by all for bis purity, for the strict up
rightness of bis life, and for liberal ideas. He is a modest and agreeable
man, highly cultivated and very kind hearted. He bas never taken great part
In the political and public life of the church; but divided his time between
study and good works. Although most faithful to the Holy See he was pre
sented to the King and Queen of Italy in Venice. He was considered among
the most liberal members of the Italian episcopate and Sacred College.
Although little is known of the new Pope's political tendencies, he Is con
sidered to be one likely to avoid conflicts and to continue the moderate pol
icy of Pope Leo and Cardinal Rampolla. Officials in Rome recall bis tactful
course In receiving the King and Queen of Italy at Venice, which removed
much of the friction hitherto existing, and led to a warm friendship between
Sarto and Quepn Helena. This incident is cited ns an evidence of his concil
iatory disposition and the likelihood of no material change taking piace In the
policy of the Vatican. The new Pope Is one of the greatest preachers of the

IXETTE'3 eyes bespoke an ap
proaching sterm. "A fair wom
an strain!" she muttered half
audibly as she gathered up the cards
impatiently to throw for the last time
which should decide If she were right
to doubt Cecil s loyalty. Fearing to
learu the worst, yet determined to
know the truth at auy cost, NinMte,
the dark-eyed artist's model, fpiead
out the fortune-telling cards ou the
pedestal before her, while she awaited
tl:e coming of Cecil Tujrne, master of
the studio' and of her heart.
"Ah! This is better" with a smile
of satisfaction "why, here Is gool
luck again! Perhaps, after all, Ce.ll
Is true. If I touid only understand
th-ir language! But he never speaks
to her In French. Courage, Niu tie!
the last cards tell your st. ry. Is It a
fair lady or a dark girl who Is loved
by Cecil? Dieu!"
The "fair lady's card" had turned
again, ai d Nine.te burst ino a fresh
deluge of teurs Just as the false Cicll
swung open tlie a udio door and. wi.h
out obesrvluif the crouching ttfciiie of
Ninette, b. gan to whistle a merry air.
"How cm you whistle when I am sj
miserable?" said Ninette between h.r
"Why, bless my soul, Ninette, I nev
er saw you!"
"You have no eyes for me. You
would have seen another if she had
been here."
"Another would not have kept so
silent, perhaps and tears, too! Now
this Is tiresome, when 1 have had such
a turn cf good luck. Listen, Ninette,
and dry your eyes. My picture "
"Of me?' '
"No, no the great one, 'The Dawn.'
will be exbibltid. Then if luck comes
our way, ns Is sure to happen, we can
be you know what!"
Cecil drew Ninette to bim In affec
tionate embrace, too elated wilh his
jwn hope of prosperity . to question
further the cause of tears. Ninette's
doubts vanished somewhat as tbe ten
der avowals of love fell from the llpt
of her lover. She could not believe
him quite false, and yet why did he
not exhibit her portrait in the salon.
Could not "Dawn" have black hair as
well as golden, and surely the fair lady
was not otherwise wore beautiful than
Cecil Interrupted the unpleasant rev
erie with, "Ninette, do you know I
believe ray love for you has made me
a better painter! M. de Thales wus
here this morning and said tbe warmth
and soul of 'The Dawn' were extra
ordinary." p The announcement that love for her
had aided hlni lu putting warmth and
suul Into the eyes of another woman
was not comforting to Ninette, and
she broke from his embrace Impatient-
ly. Catching up her broad brimmed
hnt kIib duelled nut of the studio and
fchut herself iu her own little chamber,
which was on tbe ground floor. -
"The little vtxeu!" laughed Cec!l.
"I supppose old Gretba gave her a bad
breakfast this morning. She did not
seem properly pleased with tbe passl-
bllity of your being
soon Ab,
hope she Isn't fond of you; you know
that la easily possible with these
French ceraturea of Impulse."
"O, that it Just like you women," re
plied lightly that excellent Judge of
feminine emotion; "always suspicious
of another woman's love. Well, I can
tell you one thing, Julia; Ninette's love
Is less dangerous tlniii her bate, al
though I should not like to trifle with
either. But I, who no thoroughly un
derstand Ninette, shall take care that
no danger attends her love for me."
Ninette had crept from her chamber
and was listening at the keyhole of
the studio with hot breath and angry
eye. How tender his voice! Almost
the only English word that Ninette
knew was "dear," aud she beard hi m
apply It to Julia the fair-haired. She
felt she could burst with jealous pas
sion, but at this moment she heard
familiar voices on the steps and sev
eral comrades stood before her.
"Good -morning, Nina!" exclaimed
tbe foremost on beholding tbe model,
whom all knew to be a favorite with
Cecil, and, locking bis arm familiarly
In hers, tbey entered tbe studio, fol
lowed by the others.
"Hel!o, Thorne Just heard of your
luck, my boy! Give us a shake of the
haud, old chap, before you get too
high up In tbe world to recogniazo old
friends. Let's have a holiday now lu
celebration. Come out of the studio
after to-morrow yon will be too grand
for frivolities."
Julia arose and smiled assent
"Do, Cecil; you work much too
bard. It will do you good. Good morn
ing, tenth men; good by, Cecil Ni
nette!" The last was an exclamation,
r.ot a greeting.
A ' iL
Nln?tte was glaring from her dark
eyes, aud Julia Involuntarily shudder
ed as she lifted her rich silken gown
and swept down tbe stairs.
"O, If I knew how to speak French
I would let tbe little French demon
know she must not siare at me so lu
solently. Poor Ninette! I hope her
love for Cecil will not Interfere with
his work, but I am the last person
lu tbe world who ouyht to blame her
for loving him."
Careless and free as are only tha
plensure-lovlng Auicriean artists who
alternate the study of art with that of
"La Vie" In the Eden of both, Cecil
Thome and h a cnmpanl ns made th'i
cafes In th? Latin quarter of Paris rlnjf
with the'r merriment unt 1 a late hJtir,
when Cecil returned to bis lodging. In

row, lie spent a half hour or so In h's
studio, and after making a few final
arrangements starte.l for bis attic b.d-
room. As he passed the aoor or .Ni
nette's aprimrnts he wondered If she
slept. Then, at a sudden recollection
of his hcp?s and all tbey meant to bim,
be' broke Into a merry whistle aud
m'uutid light-heartedly to his own
doer. His burst of merriment was tbe
last straw.
"To-morrow," she thought. "I will
not forget that I bave helped you to
put warmth aud soul Into her eyes!
You think you shall find fame to-morrow,
aud that the falr-balred, cold
hearted girl will lulp you (o rejoice;
but you do not know Ninette1."
Springing from her couch, she felt
for matches, but could find none. "No
matter," the said. "I know the easel
well. Have I not watch d him bend
ing over It as though he loved the
canvas Itself? DleuJ you should have
exhlbltfd Ninette." Noiselessly, vin
dictively, she groped ber way along
the dark passage Into the studio. Not
even a uiombeam to assist her feet
over the cold stone floor. "Ha the
easel!" she gave a little cry of pain
as ber tender foot came in Contact
with the sharp edge. Then, seizing a
wet brush, with delicious Joy she drew
It again aud again across Ihe picture,
smearing beyond recognition every
corner of the canvas. "There!" sha
said as she threw down the brufh and
started to leave the studio. "There!

at lat, 1 should bate it if Cecil had
not golden hair."
The thought of Cecil's fair hair,
which she had so often covered with
ardent kisses, recalled ber to a mo
ment of sudden reproach."' What had
she done? She, who pretend -U to love
Cecil, had destroyed the result of a
whole half-year's toll and bis hope of
fortune, and perhaps yes, that selSsb
"perhaps" swept over her with over
whelming force, aud the little criminal
crept back to her chnmber, threw her
self upon her couch, and there remain
ed till her restless slumber was dis
turbed by tbe sound of Cecil's foot
step entering the studio.
She awoke with a start. He whs
walking towards the easel. She dared
not go to hlni; she wsnld wait till the
first outburst of his passion had pass
ed. For a long time there, was abso
lute silence In tbe studio. At last, un
able to bear the suspense, she timidly
opened tbe studio do ;r aud looked In.
AU trace of the defiant Insolence which
made her so bewitching had vanished,
aud she paused submissively, awaiting
tbe volley of reproof which she so
richly deserved. Instead of this, Cecil
smiled at beholding ber and advanc.d
to meet her, and she felt half afraid.
"Ah, there you are, ma ch,ere. Com
and see what some villainous band h..s
"No, no," answered Ninette, still
questioning his sanity. "I cannot look
upon It. O, Cecil, you have driven ma
mad with Jealousy!"
"Jealousy, uia chfire? What on eaith
are you talking about? Do you not
believe that I love you fondly devot
edly "
'Stop! Yon call her 'dear.' Cecil,
answer me this da you love the fair
Julia who sits for 'The Dawn V "
"Lovo her of course I do but not
as I love you."
'There, you confess! I will not share
your love with ber. I was so:ry I d d

would be famous with her portrait
and she would be glad with you. la
It not to? You dare not deny It!"
"Why, Ninette, how Ktrangtly you
talk! Would the not be au unnatural
woman not to be glad of her trother'a
"Brother!" almost shrieked Ninette.
"Brother? She la your sister, Cecil?"
"My dear child, do you mean to tell
me you have not known that?"
"Why have you never told me that
before?" r
"Why, Ninette, I never dreamed that
you did not know it. Every one else
knows It, and you bave never spoken
of this before."
"No, I could not bear to speak of
her, and I heard nothing of your talk
I do not understand your English
talk. And now O, Cecil! Cecil! th
picture the villainous band "
"O, yes! to be sure; I nearly forgot
tbe picture with your wild talk. I say,
Ninette, what a good thing The

"Removed? Say It again, Cecil! It
was removed, and It was not her pic

have done?"
Th?n the painter realized for tha
first time what she bad lutended to
"You little vixen!" he said seriously,
"did you do It, and did you mean to

But she was not listening. She knew
