By WILLIAM CHANDLER
Ono morning In autumn, while Inking
an outing in my touring car, I came
upon an auto standing in the road
which had evidently broken down. A
man was attempting to And the break,
wlillo a woman sat In tho car. I pull
ed up bcsldo the couple and asked if
there was anything I could do for
"My wife," suld the man, "was go
ing to tho railroad station at Montrose
to cntch a train, but this mishap has
delayed us. SInco you aro going in tho
opposlto direction from Montrose, I
conclude you will pass through Water
ton." To this I nodded assent.
"A train passes through VVatcrton
ut 3 o'clock. If you would kindly car
ry my wife to that station she would
bo In time."
"I would be pleased to take you both.
Thcro is plenty of room in my car."
"Thank you very much, hut I must
remain with my machluo and secure n
workman to fix It or get It towed to
During this brief dialogue the wom
an, who was veiled, remained In the
car without saying u word. After my
offer the man went to her and said
something In a low tone. What It was
I did not hear, but she appeared to
glvo a ready assent to It, for she got
out of tho car; the man took up n suit
enso and put both her and tho case in
my auto. Having shut tho door and
given her a pressure of the hand, ho
nodded to me to proceed, and I start
It was sulllulcntly lato in tho season
for fur rugs, and the lady pulled them
up to ber chin. Sho partly removed
her veil, and I saw that sho was young
and qulto pretty. But when sho put
on n pair of dust goggles there was
very llttlo of her faco exposed. Wo
had not gono far before wo mot nn
auto coming at a furious pace. In It
were two men, tho driver and another.
As they passed us they slowed down,
and ono of them called out something
that I did not hear, but tho other, who
was driving, turned on full speed, and
they wcro soon lost in a cloud of dust.
We reached Waterton in half an
hour, and what was my Biirpriso to sco
the lady's husband standing on tho
station platform. lie cast n quick
pin nee at the coming train, then at
my car, evidently gauging the dis
tance of each, anxious that wo should
bo In time. I put on full speed and
reached tho platform just ns the train
was pulling out. Tho man seized tho
suit case, which seemed to concern
him more than his wife, and both hur
ried to the train, climbing on when It
was in motion.
My route thenceforth led me back a
few miles from Waterton on the road
I had come to n crossroad on which I
was to chnngo direction. As 1 rodo
along I wondered how the man I had
left with tho broken down nuto could
have reached tho Waterton station
ahead of me. I had not had time to
ask him this or what ho had done with
I had nearly reached the crossroad
when I saw coming a car with four
men In It dragging another car. By
this tluio 1 had become n bit suspicious
that thcro might bo something wrong
with the couple I hud assisted nnd
that possibly I might have been help
lng undeserving persons. Seeing tho
nuto dragged nlong caused mo to re
frain from letting it bo known what
I had been doing. When tho men
came to a point opposite mo ono of
them, looking hard nt me, said:
"Sco here, young fellow, who was
that woman you were driving toward
Waterton awhlto ago?"
I recognized him as the chauffeur of
the nuto I had met ufter tnklug in tho
lady. There- was nothing to do but to
tell the whole story, which was listen
ed to with eager attention. When 1
had finished the man who had asked
tho question snld to me, evidently
"Vou havo helped a precious pair
of thJoves to get uway with n big lot
of plunder. You havo done it either
ob a confederate or n fool."
"You're tho fool, Slmnionds," said
another. "I wnnted you to stop 'em.
but ypu wouldn't wait"
"I didn't dream tho woman would
como back to meet us," said tho other.
"It was n mighty clover trick," put
in ono of tho others.
"Gcutlomen," I said, "will you oblige
mo by explaining what has happened?"
This -was tho oxplannUon: A butler
and a lady's maid had got away with
$50,000 worth of Jewels. They had
taken ono of the autos belonging to
their master and mado for a station on
a railroad. Being missed, they wore
followed by tho men in tho auto I had
mot Their machlno had broken down,
and had I not nsslsted them they would
havo been captured. It was a stroke
of genius on tho butler's part to send
tho maid back to tho Waterton station
Without him. Soou aftor I loft him he
captured a machlno at tho point of a
pistol and mado for Waterton by n cut
off that I know nothing about
In tlmo tho Jewels wore recovered,
but tho precious irnlr succeeded In
keeping out of Jail. I had some dilll-
cuity in clearing mysolf from n charge
of having been accessory to tho crimo,
hut I told n straight Btory and furnish
cd proofs of my respectability. This
satisfied tho Judge, who, after giving
mo n long lecturo on tho stupidity I
had displayed, kindly discharged me.
It is easy for a Judge on the bench to
Th Primary Fact About War.
Wo sometimes think that the distin
guishing characteristic of war is tho
killing nnd maiming of men, but It is
evident that this is not tho real dis
tinction, for men arc killed nnd maim
ed in tlmo of peace. Tho essential and
the ono mnrked dlffcrcnco is this, that
during war a nation is a society,
whereas In pcaco It la na aggregate of
Individuals. So truo is this, indeed,
that if n denizen from somo other
world acquainted with our normal ac
tivities during pcaco should visit us
when wo nro at war ho would havo
dlfllculty in recognizing in this smooth
ly moving, harmonious unit tho disor
ganized welter of yesterday. Compar
ed with tho spirit that, nnlmatcs a so
ciety nt wnr, the disintegration thnt
inovltnbly ensues when tho sword is
laid aside is in all practlcnl respects
like tho dissolution which sets in in
tho body of n man when tho spirit has
taken its flight "Tho World Storm
and Beyond," by Edwin Dnvlcs Schooii

If tho prisoners in tho famous "black

If tho prisoners in the notorious dun

Why Steam Caita a 8hadow,
Why does water cast no shadow,
while steam, which is Invisible, does
cast a shadow? Puro water In a Btato

rays of light, although thoy may bo re
fracted, pass through it almost unlm
pedod in parallel lines. Steam is com
posed of vapor of dlfferout degrees of

A girl was sitting on tho porch of
her home thinking. Five years before
on thnt very day of tho month she had
refused Henry MacMIllan. She was
then eighteen years old, and the In
direct method in love affairs appealed
to her. If n man proposed to her anil
sho refused him sho expected him to
return tho next day and the next nnd
so on till she accepted him. MacMIl
lan had no conception of this sort of
loveinaklng. Ho never said anything
he didn't mean and couldn't under
stand any one else doing so. But his
experience with women was not ex
tensive. On this summer afternoon Luella
Travels was thinking of Henry Mac
MIllan. She had not intended to refine
him more than once. When ho came
hack the second time which she imt
uraly expected ho would do she In
tended to accept lilm and nt the snuio
time show lilm how long sho had loved
him by giving him a smoking cap. n
which she had embroidered a wreath,
lie had no use for a smoking cap and
no ambition to wear a wreath about
his head, but Luella couldn't think of
anything else to do for him.
Henry was ns stupid about some
things ns he was wise about others.
If a dozen persons hnd witnessed tho
refusal he received every ono of them
would have known that Luella was
refusing him with her tongue, while
sho was accepting him In her heart
nenry heard her words, but saw not
their denial. He had received a busi
ness offer in a distant city nnd wished
to learn If Luella would marry him.
If so ho would consult with her ns to
its ncceptnnce; If not he would nccept
It without consulting her nnd go where
ho would not bo nenr her nnd conse
quently the better nblo to recover from
his desire for her.
Luella was n bit surprised that
Henry should have taken her reply so
seriously, should hnve bowed, though
reluctantly, to what ho considered the
Inevitable. Ho left her without a mur
mur, and she was somewhat fearful
that ho might not give her nn oppor
tunity to recnll her refusal. Sho had
half a mind to call him back. But hair
n mind Is not a whole mind, nnd sho
let him go, expecting tho next time sho
met him to draw him to another pro
posal by those winning ways she un
derstood how to apply.
She did not see Henry for several
days, then she was greatly shocked to
hear that he had gone to another city
to engage In business and make It his
home. Why sho did not wrlto him to
tell him that her refusal of him was
only temporary does not appear. Perhaps.-It
was for tho same reason, that
tho myriads of other temporary re
fusals aro not recalled. A woman must
wait for a first proposal, and it Is equal
ly obligatory for him to wait for a
And now Luelln on the anniversary
of her refusal the date was as well
fixed In her mind ns her birthday was
sitting on the porch wondering as she
had wondered constantly since her lov
er's departure what could have mnde
him so stupid. And yet hnd ho seen
through her game what would havo
been tho pleasure in her playing it? II
had not occurred to ber that sho bad
better have refrained from the
nnd acted on the principle that a
in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Who is thnt tnll figure coming up
tho rond? There is something familiar
In the wnlk, something in tho outline,
something intangible, lndescribnblo
about the whole. Luella's heart stood
still. Yes, it Is Henry. Ho is heavier
than ho wns, his step Is a trlllo less
quick than It used to bo. but It Is
Henry, tho man sho refused flvo years
ago, to her regret over since.
Was ho coming to renew his propo
sal? Luella had had fits of anger against
her lover for being so stupid. Now, In
stond of n hopo springing in her henrt
that ho was coming to tell her that ho
could not live without her, with n con
sequent throwing herself into his arms,
sho wns seized with n deslro to punish
him. For whut? For hnvlnglnken her
Henry anno on. Luella, pretending
sho did not see lilm, looked up nt tho
sky. no stopped before tho house,
then mounted tho steps. Luella forc
ed a smile. Ho looked ns gloomy ns
tho dny ho had loft her.
"Why, Mr. MacMIllan!" sho cxclaim-1
ed. "What a long tlmo since I have
"I'vo not been in this town since I
saw you last," ho said.
"Canio back to sco your mother. I
"Yes; to see my mother, but to seo
you, too. I'vo passed nn unsatisfied
flvo years since I left here. I've come
back to try to persuade you to recall
what you said to mo Just boforo I left
There wns something so miserable in
bl3 appearance nnd tone thnt her de
Biro to nunish him for his stupidity
broke, away. Asking hini to "wait n
bit" Bho went into the houso nnd
brought out tho smoking cop sho hnd
kppt so long.
"I had Intended to recall what I said
tho next dny, but you didn't glvo mo
an opportunity. I had been mnking
this gift for you for months and ex
pectcd to glvo It with my consent"
8ho spoke through tears.
Tho man only a genius could por

ou his face.
