I was no exception to the rule. But 1

which I spoke Indifferently, bidding
him good day and remarking that It
was a fine morning.
Ho seemed very shy. But the Mexl
enn people have not that self reliance
common among us of tho United
Stntes. and I did not expect him to
meet mo halfway. Besides, he was
boyish looking and even for n boy del
Icate In appearance. The only sign of
ruggedness about him was a color In
his checks. He looked at me askance
nnd us though he hud no desire for m
company until I told him that I was a
citizen of the United States, when ho
began to ask mo questions about how

American port, when and to wlin:

Ulco an oyster.
Occasionally 1 would glance aside at
him when 1 know bo was not aware ol
It and saw on his face Indications that
ho was under the Influence of some
powerful emotion. I would have liked
to gain his confidence that I might
learn what moved him, but I did not
believe this possible, so I did not tr.
However, as we proceeded on our way
together bo ceased to appear nnxious
to get rid of me, and before wo roach
ed Vera Cruz he seemed to coiisldct
mo something of a protector.
Finally I ventured to ask him about
what be would do at Vera Cruz, ami
he told mo ho was going to sail on the
first vessel leaving for the United

A Typhoon In Japan.
My room on tho second floor rocked
nnd swayed, and It scorned as though
tho building could not hold together.
After awbllo I grow accustomed to
tho motion nnd tho nolso of breaking,
glass nnd dropped off to sleep, but n
terrific crnsh right by my enr brought
mo up with a start. Tho sheet iron
shutters of my windows had finally
succumbed to tho fury of tho gale nnd,
nlthough fully eight Inches outsido of
tho glass, had bent In until tho win
dows, sash and all, lay shattered on
tho floor. A drenching torrent whirled
In through tho crack between tbo re
listing shutters, seized a screen and
hurled it clear across tho room on to
my bed and then seized tho bed and
bounced it savagely up and down.
Then part of tho roof took leavo and
slid pnst my window with tho nervo
racking clatter of coal pouring into an
empty steel bin.
By dawn tho typhoon was satisfied
with whnt It had done nnd moved on
out to sen. I retrieved my saturated

society of ladles and wns n great fa
vorlto with them. Yot ho never mar

to regret not having dono so. Rogers'
"nearest approximation to tho nup

thought to bo tbo most beautiful he
had ever seen. At tho end of tho Lon

"I go tomorrow to Worthing." Ho did
