“Do you know, Tom,” and his black |
eyes sparkle«! as he looked down at the ,
optalescent liquor swaying under the
movement of his fingers, “the time has i
come when you can do me a favor?”
“Can I indeed?"
“You don't seem overjoyed,” he said
in a purring tone. “Look here. I know
we’ve had a few small differences, but
can any two people of marked individu­
ality live together in a state of unruffled
peace? Tom, give me your hand.
“OA, yes, Pll hare, It back.”
“Don’t be mawkish. Come to the
point. You want something. What is
“Why. you're ¡»oritively brutal, you
unconiprotniring young dog!" Mid Dela­
tole, with a laugh, ami then leaned con­
fidingly on his arm. something terrier
like in the intensified «harpuess of his
face, “but here goes! I know you’ll help
me, now that you are a (’rcesas again.
I’m tired working for The Challenge.
The pay. large a« it Heems, is beastly
small for all I do. Emerson is anxious
to sell The Morning Cry. and I want to
buy it. Whew! What a chance for me.
I’d make it yell. Why. I’d l»e rich in a
year. Now. if I can only pay him a third
of the required amount down, it’s mine.
I want you, Murray, to lend it to me.”
It was triumph that flickered deeply
in Tom’s level glance. How often in his
luckless moments this voice had sharply
prodded him that now, sunk to a caress­
ing tone, asked help of him!
“Quite impossible, my dear Delatóle,”
he Baid promptly, with a shrug. “I need
every penny just now.”
“You’re jesting." And Delatóle grew
visibly paler. “What is your pressing
need, pray?”
“I must pay my debts. As you so of­
ten reminded me. they are legion. I owe
you nothing more—thank God for that—
but there are others.”
“Murray, this iff bosh. Let them wait.
I should certainly be first with you.
This is a critical moment for me. Yon
can’t refuse."
“I do. I refuse.”
There was a sullen, red point in Dela­
tor's purplish pupils. He felt very
much as an elderly hen does who sees a
half feathered chicken leave the shelter
t»f her wing and with a defiant chirp
make its hesitating way alone. It was a
moment liefore lie could control him Relf
and sjieak.
“Surely Mrs. Baudoine's money”—lie
commenced with a forced, insulting
“You’ve talked a good deal abont that
money. Delatole. I'm sorry it must I k *
left out of your calculations. The en­
gagement’s off. Sink or swim, I go it
alone. Mrs. Baudoine understands, and
we remain good friends.”
“So that's the way the
lies? You
must tie growing sentimental again.
Well. then, your own money will an­
swer. You're drawing big royalties from
vour play, and it’s one to last. I tell you,
Murray, if you refuse to assist me yon
are a contemptible ingrate.” He stood
up, placed his palms upon the table, his
voice coiling serpent wise around the
words. “It was I who made you.. Don't
forget that, my friend. You are an un­
formed stripling, a youngster groping in
the dark, without polish, without suav­
ity. Why, without me”-----
The blood rushed to Tom's face.
“Don't remind me of what I was—
without you. Don’t let me think of
what I have become following you,’’ he
interrupteil fiercely. ' You made me.
yon say? I have ruined myself, rather,
and yon have ably assisted at the wreck­
ing. Yon can no more remake n^ now
than can I myself."
He stood up. his eyes flashing with
their old impulsive passion. The words
came slowly, deliberately:
“Perhaps it's just as well we speak
plainly at last. Delatole, you've robbed
“Yes. you've lived upon me success­
fully for two years. I'm negligent about
money, and I let you go on. but I'm not
a fool. You have bled me in a most con­
sistent and masterly manner, doubled
my etpenses with a lavish recklessness,
and I knew it all the time. But I kept
the peace, for I had made up my mind to
end it at the first opportunity.'’ He
leaned forward, his face close to Dela-
tole’s, and his clinched hand rang on the
table. “It's ended now.”
During his adventurous life Anthonv
Delatole had many limes been surprised,
but never so thoroughly confounded l>e-
fore. He stood, leaning upon the table
and watched Tom out of the room.
There was a craven malignity in every
line of his sneering face. A longing al­
most irresistible gripped him to knock
Tom down and kick him until the hot
brutal desire for retaliation had been
“Stumped, by God!" he mutter«!.
The next fortnight saw an important I
change in Tom's life. He left the Uni­
versity building and took a cheaper
suite of moma on Irving place, one of
the bivouacs of Bohemia. Delatóle and
he had parte»! in a silence that was sul
His plunges in Wall street kept him
well snpplinl with money for the time
being, and of the future he thought but !
The ««-ret had changed its aspect. Ho
no longer cared to face it. It was now !
a monstrous fear maddening him with
whispers of a hundred possibilities, prod­
ding him. sending out false alarms and
slowly chilling his assurance into an •
ever present premonition. Since the day
Felix Dawson left him with th$ declarg-
tion, “Oh. yea. I ll have it back." he luid ¡
not seen nor heard of him. This abso­
luta withdrawal was more significant
than threats. Suppose he had incon­
testable proof, after all? What if he
lied when he said be had no copy? What
if he could produce witnesaes to prove ,
lie had written the play? Would this
man some day apilar again, relent les«
in hia quiet way, and hurl the
shell that would bring his false life in
ruins about his ears?
His rupture with Delatole—that, too,
made him uneasy. Oh. it was a load
from bis heart to have told him the truth,
to have seen the sullen «nr]»rise deepen
into a stolid hat re 1 in hit horrid eves. It
was a relief, a balm, but it brought a
danger in its wake. Supjiose they mat,
these two who for different reasons
would rejoice in his overthrow. Then
indeed might he shudder. J^elatole would
follow the scent insatial / . He would
come like a vulture to pick his bones.
Even if proof were not jiossible he would
so damn him with suspicion, so liesmear
him with the trail of his innuendoes, so
riddle him with the darts of his acrid
humor, his prestige would lie lost for­
ever. Delatole had the ¡lower, the op­
portunity and the unswerving patience
to write an enemy down and out of ex­
These dangers lay in wait for him at
some turning in the darkness beyond his
vision. But there was something more
terrible—a voic e that spoke to him as no
living voice could. Mystic and person­
al, it came from his soul. Conscience,
like the giant of fairy lore, sometimes
awakens refreshed and hungry from a
seven years' sleep. In this interval of
inaction it was impossible for Tom to
look back on the short life he had so
quickly and completely degraded and
feel no pang.
The heartburning, the anxiety, left
their haggard marks upon his face. He
grew thin, he became morose and mel­
ancholy. His world lost sight of him,
but hidden in some corner of the crowd­
ed theater, driven there by a restless fas­
cination, by the same resistless impulse
which forces the murderer to feast his
shrinking eyes upon his victim, he night­
ly watched the play that told him in
every line he was a thief.
His nights were sleepless and filled
with fears—intolerable links 1 »etween
morbid, feverish days. He drank heavi­
ly, trying to find in the flaming odors of
brandy an assuagement for the ache in
his heart.
This was Tom’s life now. And across
this waste, like a pale ray trembling
from pure, open skies, came a longing,
persistent as a thirst, to see Virginia.
He could not account for it. It was
not that he fancied their friendship
might l»e in any degree renewed, indeed
he never seemed farther from her than
at this period, never more undeserving
of a glance from her eyes. But the de­
sire was there, not forcible enough to
wild him seeking her. yet with him al­
ways. While fearing, half expecting to
come face to face with Dawson, he was
unconsciously looking for her on the
streets, in shops and at the theater.
Two years had passed. ami he had nev­
er chanced upon her. Such a thing could
only be possible in a city like New York,
where interests lie so widely apart and
life rushes in great circles, one within
another, never meeting. Virginia was
scarcely a mile from him, yet not seek­
ing each other they could not have been
more separate had they lived in different
towns. Bohemia and (’lielsea square are
antithetic—the one all fever, struggle,
laughter, frailty, the other somnolent in
an odor of sanctity, ruffled only by trem­
ulous chimes as the days walk demurely
Yet. so strange is the affinity between
thought ami sequence, Tom felt scarcely
any surprise when one night at the thea­
ter he lifted his languid eyes and saw
Virginia in a lower box.
There she was as he had so often pic­
tured her through these useless. feverish,
fear haunted days. His sick soul raged
with yearning, and in all the crowded,
half lit house he only saw her face. He
scarcely seemed to breathe. His eyes
devoured her. The dear face! There
was no other like it in the world.
The light was in her eyes, the red in
her arching li’is. the soft fire of expect­
ing, exulting youth not one whit
dimmed. It is only in books women
show upon their faces when they have
passed the first milestone on the path of
Would she see him? He hardly knew
whether he most longed for or dreaded
her glance. How would she look if she
knew the truth about the play she
watched so earnestly? What would her
eyes say then?
A coldness began to steal over him. a
desire to shriek. His head was whirling.
Was he going mad? This dull, inarticu­
late grief preying upon his heart—oh, if
he could sigil it away!
Saic Virginhi in a lower bo jt .
And all the while in the rosy gloom
thrown upward by the footlights Vir­
ginia's face shone like a star. And all
the while the old jtassion grew with the
seconds, no longer single and pure, the
ideal love of a man's youth, but a reck­
less. dominant craving for her. the fruit
of past experience ami present despair.
He remembered nothing more until he
stood liefore her. their hands locked.
Oh, that moment!
He was dimly consrinns of a strange
man with Virginia and of an introduc­
tion to him, but he seemtwl an intermin­
able distance away through a madden­
ing red blur. The crowd, the music,
too. had receded, and Virginia's upraised
eyes, her warm, confiding palm, were
the only realities.
What he said to her he never knew—
something mutter«!, incoherent—words
seemeil of such little value then beside
the longing to crush her to his sore heart
Then for a moment he look«! away,
his eyes drawn upward as by a spell.
A cry wavered from his paling lips:
he r?eh*d back want an«l flung her hand
from him. Above, ain«mg the sea of

Virginia. at lb «!»►< of ttie lux, stood
fa«*ing the ciwwd wli^r»1 Tom had disap-
**arrd. A shudder shook her from lmnd
to foot. Slie »till «remed looking into a
pair of tonuentnl bine eye« alight with
a »hitting flume; the choked, broken ac­
cent« of a familiar voice were in her ear».
And yet—oh, be?—wa» it real-
: ly Tom who had stood there? That
gaunt figure and sickly face, the dieao-
lute eyes and coarsenetl month were
like a travrety on the memory cherished
j so tenderly. The pity of it!
Her raised arm droojied against the
enrtain in the shadow, and she laid her
face ujain it. closing her eyes and letting
; the slow, heavy tears fall as they would.
A love 1s»ru of loug association is not
an eas tiling to kill. Virginia's died
hunl i' • ,:it piteous uioiueut, but it died
aureh. Site scarcely knew it herself, so
keen, so ■h'i p was the rush of compas­
sion. almost maternal in its intensity,
that took its place.
But gradually as the tears fell and the
throes of the awakening continued she
saw the truth. The latssiou that hail
held her to the ]>ast was like a woruont
coil whose strands in the weak places
»he had persistently kept inende«! until
Tom s own hand hail cut it tonight, leav­
ing in her grasp only a handful of worn-
out shreds. The old feeling was like
something done with «ml put away for­
ever. Weak and morbid natures cling
to a sentiment when the ideal that pro­
jected it is lost. A proud and virile
heart leaps exultant, free.
But there was none of the triumph of
freedom tenqiering the first acuteness of
Virginia's awakening. She was think­
ing of Tom as she had first seen him
year» ago. He had stood on the stejis of
the chapel that April morning when the
square was a glory of white clouds and
young, rustling leaves. The stiff student
cap threw a pointed shadow across his
glowing eyes. His gown was pushed
roughly lack, one hand deep in his
l>ocket as he laughed aloud and snapped
liis fingers at a little terrier rolling on
the grass, mad in the caress of the sun­
The then and now! Ages had rolled
between that moment and this one. Was
there nothing to be done—no price she
could pay. no sacrifice she could make—
to give him back that innocence and
know him again as lie was »hat day?
One judged to be correct is the oblique
central position anil the other the
straight central preition, between which
iu reference to final choice the contro-
ver»y in Germany is »aid to be fierce.
The advocates of reform observe that
the child write» vertically when he first
goes to school, anil that the teacher has
to work for the slant. The vertical writ­
ing and the ceutral | km >* ii at the desk
are alike naturally indicated. At this
stage the controversy has led to tbe con-
elusion that the height of the desk and
that of the seat must be equally adapted
to the growth of the pupil. In some of
the progressive school», as Felix Adler'»
and at South Orange, N. J., adjustable
seats are being used.
The point iu Dr. Shaw's recent experi­
ments, made with the aid of several as­
sistants on more than 1.309 pupils in the
New York and suburban schools, has
been to see whether, with the paper di.
rectly in front of the pupil and with the
eye» closed, there could las any tendency
toward vertical writing. The pupils
were first mpiested to take the custom­
ary preition in writing, aud to write in
the ordinary manner the sentence, “John
is flying his paper kite.” This form of
exercise was selected on account of the
number of long letters which it contains,
and as being one also that is eaay for the
child to rememlier. After having thus
written the sentence, the pupil was di­
rected to take the straight central posi­
tion, dip hi» pen in the ink and with hi»
eyes closed to write the same again.
The closing of the eyes was to elimi­
nate from the child's mind the conscious­
ness of the slasit. The angle of slant in
all the long letters in the test papers was
carefully measured, the angle of slant in
the usual writing in each case being also
found with the same precision. The
measurements and the calculations ran
up to 8,600 items, and among other issues
of the work was the invention by a lady
of a machine for making the measure­
ments.—New York Press.
Club Rule In New York.
I was somewhat shocked last week
while sitting in the Knickerbocker club,
where I was busily engaged in alternate­
ly gazing on those tiresome wall paper
bouquets and garlands and in keeping
up a desultory conversation with the
only two men of my acquaintance left
in town, to see a man whom we all
knew nod to us as he passed the club
window, although accompanietl by his
wife. This is certainly very bad form.
A man should show more deference to
his wife than to any other woman. Of
course he knew better than to bow.
One is supposed never to recognize a
woman acquaintance from a clnb win­
dow. Otherwise we approved of him.—

Foretold His Own Death.
There was a new significance in Rich­
aril Monklow’s touch upon her arm. light
as it was. She felt it in her blood. There
was a sudden shyness in her glance. She
drew back, a new recognition startling
her. and looked intently nt the bronzed
face under the shorn white hair. How
composed it was. how earnest and gentle!
“You know who that was." she said;
“you’ve heard father revile him often
enough." She paused, and again a bit­
ing mist swam across her sight. “Poor
Tom! His bitterest enemy might pity
him now."
• Perhaps yon would like to follow
him. Would you? If he lives alone,
has no one to help him"-----
“What do you mean?" And her burn­
ing hand was on his arm.
“He seemed to me on the verge of a
collapse. I saw a sailor once whose face
wore that look. He shot himself. If he
hadn't, I think he would have gone mad.”
She threw out her hands in a gesture
of pain.
“Yes—come. We can get his address
at the I k » x office. If not. I know where
the manager lives. Come. You will go
with me. won't you?”
He made no answer in words, but gaz­
ing down into her questioning eyes a
flood of fealty poured from his, a long,
yearning, inspiring glance of passion
that thrilled her to the core of her trou­
bled soul.
Experts Say That Slanting Script Causes Dis­
The method of writing taught in mod­
ern schools and practiced by 9» people
out of every 1(H) has lieen declared dan­
gerous and unhenlthful by experts. By
the time the next generation matures it
will probably have lieen wiped out. The
script then will be vertical instead of
slanting, and writers will ait square and
upright before their work instead of side­
ways and stooped, aa at present.
The idea of this prospective reform or­
iginated in Germany and overspreads
England while reaching this country.
The following resolution was adopted
not long ago by the international con­
gress of school hygiene in London by a
vote of 229 against 1:
James Beckworth, the famous scout,
who tiecimie a war chief under the
Hume of Medicine Calf among the
Crows, bus related to a friend an extra­
ordinary feat of levitation, which a
great war chief ot the Crow Indians
performed in his presence on the eve of
leading his warriors to battle. The
chief was an aged man and professed
to have a premonition of death. For
many moons be had led the Crows suc­
cessfully against their hereditary foes,
the Blackfeet, ft was not his heart
that failed him now, but his medicine
had lost its patency.
In the dusk of the gray morning he
led his braves out on an open prairie,
and, setting his shield on edge some
fifteen or twenty feet in front of them,
pointed to it with his lance. As the
eyes of the fighting men rested upon
the embossed surface of the buckler it
appeared to rise slowly from the ground
until it reached a height corresponding
to the head of the chief; it then, by
the same invisible means, passed
through the’air until it obscured his
face and hid it from his warriors. A
thrill of horror pervaded the assem­
blage, but no word was spoken, It
was taken as an emblem of his no-
proachliig eclipse, his banishmont
from this world, his journey to the
land of the Great Spirit, to which all
Indians, good and bad, alike, went
wlth£unhesitating faith. The great
chief was killed that morning.— North

While there have been many changes
in the styles of coats and waistcoats,
trousers have come down to the present
not greatly changed. Diodorus Sic ulus
says of the Belzw Gauls that “they wore
close trousers. which they called brac­
cae.” The Roman invasion brought bare
legs to Britain, and the braccae of the
Gauls were discarded for the new order
of things. When the Romans took leave
and were succeeded by the Saxon, the
braccae was compromised by a style of
short drawers reaching half way down
the thigh and stockings coming up to
meet th*m. The drawers were called
breech or hose.
The time of Elizabeth sa..’ the cover­
ing of a man's leg develop into a con­
spicuous part of the attire of a gentle­
man. The cavaliers wore what were
termed the petticoat breeches, and knee
breeches folio wed the absurd petticoat
pattern. Trousers for infantry were in­
troduced into the British army Sept. 12,
1812, while cues and pigtails disappeared

A Queer Idea of Enjoyment.
I know, or rather I used to know, a
village in Devonshire in which every
able bodied man used to sultscribe regu­
larly to a common fund. It was an an­
cient custom and possibly still survives.
To what purpose do yon suppose that
fund was applied? To making every
subscriber—that is. every ableb<Mli€-<l
man iu the place— drunk, (lead drunk, I
fancy, but certainly drunk, on cider, on
Lertain appointed high days and holi-
lays. Talk of the temptation which a
i^reat city offers to a countryman to fall
into drinking habits? What singular
notions some folks secui to have!—All

tember to January, liefore using Ner­
vine, 1 hail at least seventy-five convul­
sions. After three months’use I havo
