His Hour of
Copyright, WOt. by C. H. Sutciiff.
It wag an Interstate contest and 15,
00 apectatora had assembled to wit
aeaa the foot race, the long Jump, the
Tilgh Jump, the thro wine of the bam
mer and other feata of agility and
strength. Among tfaem were Edith
Lawaon and Isabel Daws, who had ar.
rived upon the grounds escorted by
noiurt Drotner Dick, but he bad left
them to apeak to one of the athletes
and had disappeared. Tbla Incident
naa put toe usually smiling and amia
ble Edith out of temper, and long be
fore the first trial on the programme
naa been called she was In a captious
mood and wishing aha had not mma.
Mlaa Daws, on the contrary, waa all
enuusiasm ana anticipation, and ber
exclamations finally brought forth the
remark rrom Edith:
"What stupid thing to waste our
ume over. These so called athletes
ought to be put to sawing wood and
made to earn an honest living. Look
at that one swelling around as If be
had saved a dozen human llvcsl"
"Why, that's Tommy Hope," was
Isabel's reply. "If I only dnred, I'd
call him over here and Introduce my
elf. He's Just one of the nicest fel"
"If he Isn't a bully then I never saw
onel" Interrupted Edith. "See him
swagger as he walks. If he was In
troduced to me I'd snub him good and
"Why, Edith Lnwsont Tommy Hope
Is the chAmplou high Jumper and run
ner, and they say that he Is the best
boxer In college this year. Ills folks
are among the most"
"Bespectable of saloon keepers,
probably," sneered the pretty girl.
"So he's a prize fighter with all the
rest Nice company we are In."
Miss Daws was about to protest and
argue further when the high jumpers
,were called. There was a field of
eight, and each and every one of them
(was cheered as be took bis place.
"Eight of them," observed Miss
Daws after counting, "but none of
them will stand a show against Tom
my Xlope. You will see blm Ball over
the highest bar like a bird."
"But any well trained horse could
do the same thing," was Edith's re
ply. "He'd better bo sailing Into some
honest work, but he'll never do that
as long as the people will crowd to
aee these shows. If I bad brother
Dick here I'd box his ear."
"Get ready to clap your hands, Edith.
There be goes!"
"I won't even look."
Tommy Hope took the run and the
lamp and cleared tho bar that had
brought others to grief. In return the
crowd raised a mighty cheer. The ap
plause lasted five minutes, but Edith
Lawson didn't Join lu.
During the next half hour she criti
cised the crowd and berated her broth
er, and her friend realized that she
was In a pet, so diplomatically left ber
alone. Then the runulng race was
called, and Miss Daws' suppressed en
thusiasm burBt forth again.
"It will be Tommy our Tommy
again!" she exclaimed In her excite
ment "Oh, Edith, bow sorry I am
that you can't appreciate athletics as
the rest of us do. You see, men are
made strong, agile and muscular by
this training. Suppose that our Tom
my had to run for his life?"
"He would If offered a Job at a dol
lar a day," replied Edith.
"What a girl you are! But there
goes the bell. Now they are taking
their places. Now the slgual Is to be
given. Now Go It, Tommy, go It!
Oh, Edith, Tommy Is galnlng-he Is
creeping up he Is leading! O-o-o-h,
such sprinting! Tommy will wlnl He
has won!"
"And I am going home."
Some folks are built that way, even
some young ladles, and the only way
Is to let them hug their theories until
circumstances arise to change their
opinion. Oue could not have safely
predicted that such circumstances
would ever arise In the life of Edith
Lawson, but fate Is more powerful
than man.
Within a month she was speeding
westward in reply to an invitation
from an aunt whose favorite she was,
and, more than that, she was traveling
alone. Though unchaperoned, she was
not a lone passenger In the drawing
room car that whirled her across the
prairies. Opposite her sat a young
man whose appearance pleased her at
first sight That he was a gentleman
she Immediately decided. He made no
opportunity to speak to ber. There
.were six or eight other passengers, all
more or less sociable, and, in one way
and another, all but the young man
came to make the acquaintance of
Iflss Lawson before the first day of
Ihe Journey ended.
,After the very first glance at the
Toansrman roe girl was puzzled. She
felt sure she bad seen him before, and
she cudgeled ber brains In rain to re
member where and when. This Im
pression grew stronger whenever aha
stole a glance at him, and by and by
she was much vexed at herself for bar
failure to recall him. If the troth
was known, she was a bit Taxed with
him as well If he wanted an Intro
duction he could have iad K easy
enough, and that be didn't rash to se
cure It rather piqued ber.
Next morning after breakfast
tough looking fellow, who was riding
In style for the first time In his life,
entered the car and a few minutes
later was ogling Miss Lawson and max
lng himself obnoxious. The young
man opposite politely requested the
flashy youth to desist and was prompt
ly consigned to a climate that Is hotter
than this. lie didn't go. He simply
took the disturber by the neck and
dragged him Into the smoking car and
flung blm Into a seat with a bang.
That was the last of the disturber.
He didn't like the atmosphere of a
drawing room car. Miss Lawson would
have thanked the stranger, but be gave
ber no opportunity. He simply return'
ed to bis seat and resumed bis reading
as If nothing bad happened.
That evening as the passengers left
the eating house where they bad bad
"twenty minutes for dinner" a cow
boy with a couple of guns belted about
blm and too much liquor within him
freshly baited Miss Lawson and pre
tended to recognize her as a Miss
Thompson. It was a lamentable fail
ure. He was picked up some way,
somehow, and dropped off the platform,
and the young man who did It never
even looked back to see If there was to
be any shooting. He might have been
thanked again If be hadn't been so
busy with his own affairs.
Things were coming to a bead, how
ever. At midnight that night the train
was held up at a water tank. There
were five In the party of ruffians, and
three of them entered the sleepers and
commanded passengers to "shell out"
The command was promptly obeyed In
the first two cars, but the man who
started to work the trick in the Idaho
ran up against a snag. The reserved
young man brought out a gun and did
some shooting. He went outside and
did some more. In fact led by Mm,
the passengers rallied and killed two
robbers and drove the others Into the
woods. Miss Edith Lawson was one of
the many passengers who offered her
hand in congratulation, and thus It
came about that the two finally Intro
duced themselves. When the stranger
said that his name was Benny Hope,
but that the public Insisted on calling
him Tommy, the girl flushed up and
"Why why, there was a Tommy
nope at the Interstate meet of athletes
six weeks ago!"
"Yes, I was there."
"And you J-Jumped?
"I Jumped, Miss Lawson."
"And you you sprinted?"
"I sprinted. Did you happen to be
there lu person?"
"Y-yes, and I told my cbum, Isabel
Daws, that I hated athletes. I-I said
that an old horse could beat you all at
running or Jumping and that you
"That I ought to be sawing wood,
perhaps T' he laughed. "Well, I shan't
bold It against you."
And he didn't If he had, bow could
they be engaged at the present time,
as announced In the society columns?
It is more than likely also that Miss
Edith has chunged ber opinions and Is
a warm chamoton of the "cause."

"Why Borne Countries Are t'alafcablte.
A mere glance at our maps impresses
a few general facts upon us. We see
that the largest areas of the unknown
are now in lands that are too dry, as in
the Suhara, the desert of Arabia, and
the steppes of Mongolia; lands that are
too wet and hot, stimulating almost Im
penetrable forest growths, as In parts
of the Amazon and Kongo basins;
lands that are too cold and bleak, as
portions of the northern areas of Amer
ica and Asia. Even the characteristics
of the inhabitants Influence the extent
of the unexplored. In proportion to to
tal nrea there is mare unknown surface
lu Liberia than In any other political
subdivision of the world, because the
Libcrlana, content to live along the
coast, have scarcely entered their vast
forest maae, though they teem with
rubber and other resources. Cyrus 0.

What Hed Coral la.
The ml coral that Is used for neck
Inces Is a horny axis which supports
number of soft lodled, coral-like ani
mals, or polyps, the entire structure
beuiing a strong resemblance to a
small shrub. The fishermen, after they
have brought this shrubllke colony to
the surface, clean the soft animal mat
ter away, preserving the red core, or
axis, which Is sold as Jewelry. Al
though red coral contains some line, it
Is largely composed of a substance
akin to horn, and, like horn, It takes a
fine polish. Horn, wool and other ani
mal substances of this nature almost
invariably change their color when

One of the most Irritating of Amer
icanisms Is the use of "limb" for
"branch." "Limb" for "les" has al
ways been accepted as an American
prudery, but what Is the matter with
"branch?" Unt-eful Anglophile writers
are beginning- now to reintroduce this
latter word, but "limb" bus hitherto
been the transatlantic word with all
authors. If it Is also old English we
shall not mind so much, but Is It? The
