She examined the letter attentively.
The handwriting waa large and charac

back of the envelope waa M. II.; the post

possibility of mistake.
"Why has she written?" exclaimed
Earah; "how dare she write to him?"
At the same moment a hand touched
her arm, and Reuben Culwick'a voice
"When you have quite done with my
letter, Miss Eastbell, I should feel oblig

Sarah Eastbell gave a little scream of
aurpriBe, and turned to greet her cousin.

them warmly, winding up proceedings by

books, by tilting the volumes forward to
the floor, and Sarah sat down and looked
timidly and yet acrutinizlngly . toward

gave her time to collect her ideas, or to
observe the effect of two years' change,
of two years' trouble and hard work and
worldly drudgery upon him. This gave
him time also to note how years had re

gawky girl had grown into a handsome
young woman, whom he could only iden
tify with past forlomness by her large,
dark, wistful eyes. And ahe saw, with a
strange heart-sinking for which she could
Dot account, that there waa a startling
change In him who was facing her.
"I am very sorry," ahe said at last, and

"I am In my right place," he said, with
little laugh that was hardly natural,

"I I hardly understand," aaid Sarah,
bewildered at this confession,
"No, no probably not," he said ijuick
ly, "and why should I trouble you about
my feelings, even if you did?"
"A word would have saved you from

Before another ayllable could be ex
changed, ahe had turned Into a narrow
court and disappeared, and Sarah East
bell was left to proceed upon her homo-
aria Eutbell wt back to
Hill with her maid. In a disconsolate
frame of mind. She had left home full
of confidence la the result of her mission,
full of faith In being of service to Reu
ben Culwick, and of Reuben being grate
ful for her efforta in his behalf, and the
reault had been an Ignominioua discom
fiture. She had left home against the
wishes of her grandmother, and In oppo
aitlon to the advice of her grandniother'a
companion, Mary Holland. Still the
granddaughter wa not orry that she
had been to London, although ahe had
failed In being of ervice to Reuben Cul
wick. She had aeen him; he had prom
ised to come to Sedge Hill some day; he
was not altered so terribly aa Miss Jen
nings had asserted; he had spoken kind
ly to her; he was not Jealous of her po
sition in his father'a house; he had suf
fered more from hla own venturea In life
than from his disinheritance; it was not
the one misfortune, but the many, which
bad altered him and aged him, and he
would be the same frank, warm-hearted
fellow presently, she prayed.
She reached Worcester In safety, and t
hired fly took her the rest of the way
home. It wa between 8 and 9 o'clock
of that autumn evening when the treat
front door waa opened to admit her. The
staid man servant wore so grave an ex
pression of countenance that Sarah aaid
"All la well, I hope, Wills? Mr. East
bell la upstairs, I suppose?"
"She Is downstair this evening. In

Sarah Eastbell paused in mute aston
ishment, for the sound -of a violin, not
nnskillfully played, came from the di
rection of the room In which ahe had been
told her grandmother waa. Music had
filled the house with harmony of- late
days, for Mary Holland waa a fair pian
ist, and Mrs. Eastbell was fond of music,
it had been ascertained; but violin play

"Who Is It?" she cried.
"It's Captain Teterson, Mis Eastbell.
If you will allow me to explain how"
But Sarah Eastbell was of too excita
ble a nature to wait for an explanation,
when the mystery wa to be cleared up
first-hand, and she swept by the servant
and went at once to the drawing room.
There were four persons In the room be
sides herself, and ahe looked from one
to another with a keen watchfulness that
hardly died away when her appearance
was observed. Her heart sank a great
deal, but she had the self-possession to
keep a bold front to the enemy for sure
ly it was the enemy who had appeared at
Sedge Hill In the unlucky time of her ab
sence, and whose coming ahe had feared
before that day, although not expecting
it In thia fashion.
Half aittlng, half reclining by the great
coal fire burning In the steel grate,, was
the old blind woman, her spare form
draped In heavy ruby velvet, over which
meandered a gold chain thick enough for
a door fastening. On her gray hairs had
been aet a turban kind of headdress, but
it had slipped sidewise, and presented a
grotesque appearance. Mary Holland sat
quiet and grave over ber wool work, and
near her were two visitors.
The younger of the two waa her broth
er Tom, glossy as a raven in a brand-new
suit of black, and the stranger waa a middle-sized,
good-looking, highly colored,
dark man of eight or nine-and-twenty,
who at the moment of Sarah'a entrance
waa playing a violin fantasia for the ben
efit of the company.
It was Mary Holland who first per
ceived our heroine, and rose as if to cross
the room toward her, lubsiding into her
seat again aa Thomas Eastbell sprang
from his chair with a shout of welcome
that nearly acared hia grandmother Into
"What, Sal Sally Sarah!" he ex
claimed, correcting hla addresa to her as
he proceeded, "to think that you weren't

brother after all these blessed years! Kiss

bers, what a beauty you have growu to!"
"Keep back, please wait a moment,"
she said in a low, suppressed voire.
But Thomas Eastbell was impetuous
like his sister. lie flung his arms round
her, and clasped her to his bosom, crush
ing her hat and fall in the process.
"I'm delighted to see you, Sarah you
don't know how glad I am to see jou

listlessly, aa she got away from hiui, and
removed her hat and cloak. The fanta

"And I'm very much obliged to Sally,"

"Not that you have been talking much

Tom, "since the dear old lady ha come

I'm grateful to the last day of my life."
He leaned acrosa the table in order
that he might pee more closely into her
face, and Sarah answered slowly:

future at a fitting time."
"A yon pleas. Take your own time,

thousands who are but half his age.
Up to fifty or sixty years ago, Cap

that men do, except that he did not
use coffee, tea or alcoholic stimulants,
and had not married. Being then half
a century or so of age, he began to ap
preciate life enough to wish to pre
'You always get what you prepare
for," said the captain. v "Most of us
expect to die at 70 or thereabouts; we
educate ourselves for death, give up
to It, and It comes for that reason.
The first thing I did was to make up
my mind that I was going to live
mind is the biggest part of It having
a mind to do the thing. ' The next is
to control appetites and passions.
"Meat I gave up as merely a stimu
lant compared with fruits and grains.
Men take care to limit the food of
their horses, knowing that free access
to the grain bin would .founder them.
But man puts no curb on himself. He
gorges to repletion three times a day
and uses up his vitality In trying to
assimilate food that he does not need.
When he has his fill of simple fare he
must needs look about for something
else to tempt a jaded appetite. Sugar
and spices are added to make the pal
ate accept that which Its natural taste
would reject as unnecessary. Thus the
body becomes loaded through every
tissue with Inert matter until some
thing break down."
At the early age of 50 or thereabouts
Captain Diamond gave up the use of
ment. In the first place mainly from
compassion for slaughtered animals;
later on because he found the absti
nence was good for him. The two-meal-a-day
plan was then tried and
the following bill of fare adopted af
ter half a century of experiment:
Cup of hot water.
Wheat or barley mush.
Boiled codfish and notatnoa.
Whole wheat health bread and olive oil.
Two poached eggs.
Fruit In season.
Vegetable or rice soup.
Whole wheat bread, olive oil
- Sweet potatoes.
Fruit In season.
"Never use white bread," says the
captain; "It Is not worth digesting."
It will be noticed that sugar does not
enter Into the bill of fare. That is
one of the greatest differences between
this man's food and what Is ordinar
ily eaten. It Is not unusual for peo
ple to give up the use of meat, but
sugar Is a harder trial than anything
except liquor and morphine.

During the Civil War the city was

and was always ground at the table
from the peppercorns. Pepper was so
valuable In those days that rents were
often paid In peppercorns, and the high
prices they brought were among the
Incentives that induced explorers to
brave the dangers of the unknown
deep. If a short passage could be dis
covered to the Indies, it was agreed
by all that a wealth of pepper could
be easily brought to Europe.
Zebra Is Easily Tamed.
Among the advantages promised to
the people of South Africa by the Brit
ish government is the utilization as a
domestic animal of the zebra, which is
indigenous to that region. An attempt
Is to be made to domesticate the zebra
for us in the receutly acquired posses
sions. It Is proposed to catch large
numbers of wild zebras and allow them
to breed In captivity, training the
young as draught animals. No attempt
apparently will be made to tame and
train the captured animals themselves,
although this has often been accom
plished with selected individuals.
The zebra proper is very difficult to
tame, bnt allied varieties, such as the
South African quagga, are more easily
domesticated. At the Cape twenty
years since these were often seen work
ing with draught horses.
We are alway wondering that some
one has not compiled statistics show
ing that the preponderance of divorce
case la reported from boarding
We have noticed that after the wool
wears off a tennis flannel gown, what
Is left wears so well that a man never
haa un excuse for needing a new one.
