Karlo Scott urrlvcd nt the pier Just
ts the giant stcnuishtp docked. Ho ap
peared to be looking for no particular
person, but, rather, to search tbe faces
of the crowds about him. Some ono
tapped him on the arm.
"Are you one of thoso horrid men?"
b rather tired voice Inquired.
Scott turned and smiled at the girl
"Well, I certainly am a man," ho
acknowledged, "and I guess I'm about
ns horrid as most of my sex."
"Oh, I didn't mean I beg your par
don," stammered the girl. "I meant
wore you a customs offlccr? You sec.
ITe scanned the glri'a face closely,
vould she bo up to tho old game of
smuggling? More than ono official bad
been tricked by a pair of honest eyes,
and Scott had Just acknowledged that
he 'was but a mere man. Tho girl cer
tainly had a fascinating personality.
Scott Informed her that he was not a
customs official, but offered to be of
any assistance to her.
"Ob, thank you so much," sho ex
claimed as she hurriedly glanced about
her. "I want a cab to take mo to that
address," and she handed him a visit
ing card. "No one has met me, and,
oh, I must set away before ho comes
off the boat."
"I understand," assured Scott, though
in reality he did not. "Want to shake
some undesirable shipboard acquaint
ance?" "It'a not exactly that bo's a dear,
but oh, if you will Just get mo a cab
that will solve tho whole problem."
A cabman was found who agreed to
take the girl to her destination for a
nominal fee, and as Scott closed the
door upon bis mysterious companion
sho leaned forward through the win
dow. "Won't you tell rao your name and
I'll havo my- uncle wrlto and thank
you?" she inquired. '
lie drew a card from his wallet and
presented it to her. Aloud sho read
the address in trembling voice, "Mr.
Earlo Cowdrey Scott, llnrlcquln Club."
"Won't you write Instead?" Earlo
suggested, but the disinterested cab
man whipped up his horse and her
answer was lost
Scott now hurriedly returned to the
ship and boarded her. He hnd no dif
ficulty In tlndlng his father, who was
always among tbe last to leave a ship.
Ills son, knowing this, had not hasten
ed to find him. After tho flntt greet
ings tbe old gentleman slapped his son
affectionately upon tbe shoulder.
"Well, my boy, I've brought you a
fine present this year a rare prize."
Then, glancing about the ship and the
crowd below them, he added. "Hut I
think the little minx has slipped off."
That evening as father and son sat
chatting over their coffee nnd cigars
the old gentleman announced:
"Well, Earle. I brought a wife homo
for you tame over In the ship with
Earle seemed somewhat startled.
"May I ask. dad. If you have mar
ried again, or Is this matrimonial im
portation for me to take unto my
"Oh,, for you for you," said the old
man gleefully. "And we're going
around there tonight, ncro's where
she la, H,er uncle, old .John Ranks,
Is a great friend of mine."
He passed the card over to Kurle.
The latter had held the mute to it In
the morning.' Smiling to himself, Earle
agreed, thinking that the myxtcrlous
girl vfss well worth knowing better.
All day long Innumerable pictures of
her bad flitted through bis mind. He
would be glad to know the truth.
When father and fcon were announc
ed, John Banks and his niece entered
the room full of hearty greetings, but
the young couple gave no outward
Blgn of recognition. Before loug the
two elder men found that comfort
awaited them in tbe library in the
form of duplicate wbiit and good ci
gars. Earle notfd that Edith Hamilton was
somewhat 111 at ease, but made little
headway In rolvjng the problem that
evening. When he left the faoutse, how
aver, be bad to acknowledge to him
self that the girl was charming in tbs
extreme. Fie mi$VoI iiermlsBlon to call
"And, by the nay. Miss Hamilton, 1
Aau't have to drag father along every
time, do I?" be sitked In mock defer

father went Into something of an ex

about you on the trip over and told her
she was Just tbe type of girl you nets

"As a most deceitful, deep young per.
son," announced Earle, with great em.
paaais. Yet in his heart he really felt
that the apparent deceit only added to
Karle became a frequeut visitor at
the Banks household. Iff had the
same of a heartless bachelor among
his club mates. Women in general
a& made little Impression on him. but
be had to acknowledge to himself that
he lored thf girl with, alt his power
and his power was n great one. He
wanted her and would lcavo no stone
unturned to win her. And tho evening
came when ho told her of his love
and asked her to bo his wife.
"Oh, I with you had not nsked me,
Mr. Scott, 1 couldn't, rcully 1 couldn't,"
was her Insistent plcft. "Just let's go
on being friends."
The big man seemed to shiver. Ho
was very much in earnest, but he took
her refusal like tho man he wns.
As he sat nt his desk the next morn
ing Idly drcnmlng of dreams gone
wrong his telephone boll rang. It Was
Edith Hamilton at tho other end of tho
wire. She asked blm In most un
steady voice to como over thrt even
ingthat sho had some sort of nn ex
planation to make. Shnrply at 8 o'clock
Scott was In tho drawing room. As
she entered the room her face bore n
sad expression, yet withal she wns
rndinntly beni tlful to Earle.
"Little girl I" Scott nlmost whispered
ns sho came toward him. She seemed
n saintly being, far beyond his reach.
"I love you you know thnt. don't
"Yes. Earle. I believe you do." sho
tittered hb she sank Into a chair near
him. "Thnt Is vthy I Bent for you.
Something' seemed to tell it to me after
you left. I want to tell -you something.
Tho day I met you on tho pier I want
ed to escape your father before ho
camo on shore. We had Joked about
my marrying his son, and when the
time came when I, must actually face
you I hurried away to escape the meet
ing." "And 1 thought you were running
away from tho customs officials,"
"Well, in part- I wns. You see, I
brought over a lot of real laco and
smuggled It In. I had sewed yards
and yards of it on a cheap petticoat
which I had on nt tho time."
For a moment they both laughed
heartily, then again the serious expres
sion came back into Edith's face.
"It was nil started in a Joke," she
continued. "But when I had actually
met you and" here her voice dropped
nlmost to a whisper "and loved you. I
was so afraid that you were asking me
Just to please your father."
"Do I look like such a mollycoddle?"
asked Earle ns he drew closer to her.
"Well, that wns why I said 'No!" last
night. Then I couldn't sleep for the
very Joy of thinking thnt perhaps per
haps you really did love me for myself
nlonc. Do you, Earle?"
For answer Earle took her In his
"You're n deceitful little wretch," ho
teased, "but I love you nnd for your
self alone better than life Itself and
you must know it."
"Oh, dear, I'm so happy," she mur
mured ns she nestled closer to him.
"And, Earle, It's early, and Uncle John
has gone over to piny whist with your
father. Let's run over nnd surprlso
them. I'm sure Uncle John will bo bo
glad to be rid of mo and your father
"Will be so happy to find that his
matrimonial importation has proved ac

"ROBERT FULTON AS A LAD.
Incidenta Illustrating the Young Man's
interest In Mechanlrs.
There nro several anecdotes which
rolnto to Robert Vulton'o early interest
In mechanics tho first slops of progress
townnl his later skill. In 1770, when
ho was eight yenrs old, his mother,
having previously taught him to read
and write, sent him to n school kept by
Mr. Caleb Johnson, a Quaker gentle
man of pronounced Tory principles so
pronounced, In fact, that ho narrowly
escaped with his Hfo during the Ilevo
lutlon. But Hobert Fulton did not care
for books, and bo begnn nt a very early
ago to search for problems never mns
tcred nnd bound In print This greatly
distressed tho Quaker teacher, who
spared not the rod, nnd If Is snld Umt
in administering such discipline on tho
hand of Hobert Fulton ho ono day tes
tily exclaimed, "There, thnt will make
you do something!" to which Itobcrt.
with fqldcd arms, replied, "Sir, I came
to have something beaten into my
brains nnd uot Into my knuckles."
Without doubt be wus n trial to bin

A Midnight Adventure With South
In describing certain experiences
among the outlaws aud desperadoes of
South Aiuerlcn nu English traveler
tells the following grisly story:
"One bight a farmer was roused
from bleep by hearing unusual nnd
Mealthy noises about the place, lie
KOt quietly out of bed aud, after listen
ing attentively, discovered that some
people outside were cutting a hole
through the door close to the bolt by
which It wns held.
"It did not rcqulro any great amount
of detective talent to guess the object
of thi' operation, and tho best way to
Toll It wus suggested by n thong of
inwtildt; with n loop on It which hung
from n hook on the inside of the door.
Noiselessly removing the thong, he
flipped tbe end of It through tho loop,
nnd there ho atood armed with an im
promptu lasso, ready for action.
"It was nn anxious time while the
f farmer stood watching the hole in the
door grow larger and larger uutll at
last It was of sufficient size to effect
the purpose- for which it was made.
"The supreme moment arrived, and a
hand was "steulthlly Inserted not only
through tbe hole, but also through the
loop of tbe little lasso which hung
skillfully around It With a Budden
Jerk the loop was tightened around the
wrist and the hand dragged In as for
ns tho uperture would allow, while the
thoug was securely fastened to the
hook on the back of tho door.
"Tho robber was perfectly helpless,
His companions cnmi' to his uid and,
having Ineffectually dragged nt the im
prisoned arm till they were tired, gave
up the struggle and prepared to depart
"But they wore prudent men. and It
occurred to them to xnve himself their
companion might betray them. Dead
men, they thought, tell no tales, so
they killed him." New York MaiL
