IlullyUig Carp. '
"I aw an Amualug thing the other
day while out fishing In Fish Lake,"
aid James Weston. "I was catching
flab about aa fast aa anyone who was
not Cubing for the market would car
to, and many of them were aunfiab. In
ibeltered spot I noticed on of those
little fellowa standing motionless,
cept Hi flm, which occasionally moved
very slowly, 1 dropped my hook, with
a' email minnow on, cloae to the flh'a
nose, when it moved up, took hold of
the bait very gingerly, carried It away
about three feet, dropped It and glided
back to lta place by the atone, once
mora tettllng lUolf aa It wsi before 1
disturbed It, Looking cloiely, 1 dis
covered a fungua beneath the flub that
looked like a bit of dlacolored lace, I
then knew that the little goggle-eye
waa 00 It apawnfng bed. Again, to
the spirit of fun, I dropped the minnow
near the aunflah. Bhe snapped It by tbe
tall and lugged It off fully two yardi
and let It drop, acuddlng back to lta
neat agln like a shot, I concluded sot
to disturb It again, and waa about to
leave, when a lubberly carp came mov
ing along. The ugly flab let Itself rise
gradually as If to take a survey of its
urroundings, Its shadow fell across
tbe sunflsh nest, and, like a weather
cock in a gale, the little sunflsh swung
around and faced the carp, that was
ten times its alze and fifteen times its
weight. Mr. Carp moved toward the
carefully prepared nest, when, like a
cyclone, the little sunflsh, with dorsal
fin erect, made a charge on the big
disturber of lt,peace. The sunflsb did
not attack tbe carp's bend, but with
bristling spines sbot under tbe big
fish's belly and prodded him with Us
needle points, Tbe old crp humped
up his back and began w bllng away,
but tbe aunfish circled and nave It an
other rake with its dorsal fin, when 1
noticed about sis inches of Intestine
protruding from tbe carp's abdomen,
That seemed to satisfy the pugnacious
aunpercb, and it returned to Its senti
nel duty above its nest, I have often
beard of tbe little sunfUu's game
qualities, but I never before saw one
in action, From that demonstration I
dpn't think the carp will destroy much
of the spawn of the little sunny, and I
am sure tbey won't get near a bass
THE BED LILY.
A Fratty Iand of tbe v(omn In the
( Osrdae of lKiimiini.
' Tbe red Illy of Palestine Is in size
and shape much like our banter lilies,
but they are yellow with purple
, streaks upon the outside and a red
blush tint within. In tbe bottom of
each bell there are six drops of sweet
' water-like tears. . If you talio these
away six nio'e will at once take their
places. About this flower this pretty
atory Is told by tbe simple folk who
live near there: "Once the Oarden
of fJetbemtine was full of flowers of
all kinds, and among them none so
fair and queenly as tbe slender, stately
lily, with all her clustering bells proud
ly upright It wis eventlme, and the
Lord came to walk awhile In Ills gar
den. As He passed tlong, each gentle
flower bowed before Him while lie
breathed tbe re'-nt of tbe quiet
hour upon them; but when He came to
the lily ber haughty 'bead remained
erect In the defiance of conscious
beauty, The Lord paused and looked
upon her. For a second she braved
that bright, mild eye of reproof, then
slowly bent ber silvery bells, while
blushes swept In paln'il brilliancy
over them. Still the Tord's gaze rested
on ber; lower sank ber bead, deeper
burned ber crimson; then tear after
tear welled up In the lily cups. At this
the Lord panned on. When morning
came all the flowers lifted tbelh heads
and smiled to see the light; all but the
Illy, tnat once white queen among
them. Her head remained bowed In
shame, while to this day she blushes
over her vanity, and the teara of re
pentance still flow In the delicate cups
ot the flower that refused to bend be

Garden of Oethscmane at tbe evening

while tbe liht
breeze frii an
tottsed bis wavy
hair about bis
brow, lie was
0brmi(t and de
lltfbtd with bla
: own handiwork,
but It was aomotblnif m re than the
mere beauty of his nnxiel's fuce that
caused his heart to boat so rapturous
ly. Oh, how he loved liW but alio,
poor girl, sitting so weurl.y in a dis
tant corner, did not dream of wliot
was passing1 in his mind,
Suddenly he turned bis rvts In ber
direction and a look of ast 'hment
crossed his handsome face, would it
be possible that tbomi were- the feat
uros which be hod si cleverly por
trayed upon the canvui.7 ,
There were flashes of flrrt in the
sweet blue eyes now and tbe delicate
mouth was curved in aa expression of
bitterness that be bad never seen be
fore. He was amazed at the sudden
revelation, for in all bis weeks upon
the picture be had never seen that
strangely bitter expression upon ber
face before, '
He crossed the room and spoke to ber
pleaitaritly, fn tenderly, and was in
tensely relieved to sue the bitterness
partially dls"ppear before the touder
noss of his manner,
"You are very tired, Violetta," lie
said frenlly, "and I am very aorryl
liut the picture is beautiful! Kx
qulslte!" With a sudden movement Violetta
sprang1 from her chair and ran hastily
across the flo r, "He loves bis pic
ture but not me," she muttered as
aha left the room, "Fool thU 1 am to
think that be would care for mul lie
is bound body and soul to his art.
What in the pretty face of a woman to
lilwi but a mo Jul for bis wonderful
'Aftor she b id jrono, Lawrence Mr
edltb stood a moment in thought,
then lighted a cigar and drew the
clmlr before the easel. He, was an
honorable follow and be knw he was
too poor to marry, He determined at
once that be would never speak one
word of love to Violetta until lie was
fully able to lend ber to the altar and
(fire her, at luast, a comfortable homo,
lie felt that she was learning to love
blin, and although It was bard to see
ber dully and n il op nk of what was
in bis heart, be wa, In a measure,
content when lie thought of the bliss
that would shortly come t reward
him for b's irs of self ' ,.lal. -
For he bad decided from the first
that this picture of Violetta should
bring hi in fame and fortune. He
would not S'H it, of conrs., but the
picture should be sent to the National
academy's exhibition, and if It was a
success, the orders that he would re
ceive would Mart him in ft lucrative
profession. Now tliut the picture
was finished, bo was almost happy.
It was ouly that momentary expres
sion upon bis model's face that
brought a shadow to bis own. What
could it mean' Was Violetta un
happy? Had slid any tortn ntlng se
cret, or was it tliu pain of parting
with him tbut had distorted her face
with such sudden bil tornesM?
Then It oucurrad to him that he bad
not even bu'n her gil night aud
this was tbe last of her daily sittings.

ruin of that which waa to bring him
fame and happiness.
Violetta's lovely , face had been
slushed into atoms and tbe torn shreds
of the canvsa dangled from tbe easel
In a man nor that nearly drove him
With a hoarse cry be flung himself
upon the floor and groaned In the
agony of spirit: "Oh, Ood! Must I
give up all?" lie oi led brokenly, "my
beautiful picture, my treasured hopes!
Oh, .Violetta, if you ouly knewl If
you weyj on'y here to see and under
stand." '' ' '
For a few moments everything else
was forgotten, then the question sud
denly enter d his mind, who could
have done this shameful deed? He
sprang from the floor and glared
enyrlly about the room. There was
110 one there and 110 truces of anyone
having been there except the oondl
1 011 if the picture itself until bis
eye full su ldetily upon the chair that
lie had drawn before the case),
Wiiat was that small, dark objoot
lying eareleisly across the cushion?
lie bent aid picked it up absently,
but with a f iling of horror creeping
slowly about bis heart, It was one
of ioliHtn's gloves. He had noticed
them day after day as she drew thorn
on over the slim wblto hands at tbe
clo. of eiieh afternoon's sitting,
II. brain reeled at the thought
now, not so much at the loss of the
picture, but at the horrible disap
pointment In the woman he so deeply
loved. TI "re was inadiiess In his,
eyes as he glanced again about the
brilliantly lighted room, Violetta
wssiost to him and the world bad
sudd 'tily become both cold and bitter,
He rose from bis chair and began
searching among bis paints with a
trembling baud and eyes that wore
bright with a feverish lustre.
It was nearly midnight when Vio
letta reeHied ber room, She was
wretchedly unhappy and the memory
of her waiting's work made br trem
ble a little, even in the safety of ber
chamber, . ,
Not until tonight, when be was
admiring Ids own handiwork, did a
suggestion of Jealousy cross ber mind,
Uut now she whs Jealous madly,
furiously Jealous of that painted
picture, and in the frenzy of that
marine she conceived a cruel, heart
less plan, 1
It wut over almost before she knew
It, not, however, as she bad at first
intended it, or at the very lust mo
ment affection conquer d reason
If u id iid ber ft little.
Now, after the dad w done'and
she was alone in the see of ber
room, she grew more calm 'gan
to be aliamed of ber evening's work,
Khe tried to sleep, but the artist's
'sad, reproachful eyes seemed to haunt
ber constantly. J
Hhe glanced at ber watch and saw
that it was nearly 1 o'clock; the key
of the studio was in ber Docket, for
of latu Lawrence had g'ven bur per
mission to enter at ber will, rather
than wait.in the ball outside when he
chanced to ba late with bis appoint
' "Heshall not see it," she whis
pered, over and over in reproachful
accents. "It was cruel of me to even
think of such a thing.
There was a bright light in tho
studio window when she reached the
door and ber heart beat furiously as
he paused for 0110 timid moment to
listen. Yes, Lawrence was there, she
could bear him fumbling about
among the bottles. Almost instinct
ively she turnod to run away, but
toinething stopped ber abruptly upon
the stairs, wbilo a shiver of horror
suddenly passed over bar. (Slio re
turned cautiously and bending, put
her tye to tho keyhole In the door.
ureat Heavenl What was the man
snout to 00 tie was standing ueiore
the ruined cunvas, one band clutch
ing wildly at his throat while in tho
tli or, held steadily to bis lips, was
t bottle she had often seen, with a
kull and croasbones on Its lalieL
With a shriek of horror she opened
tho (I nor and rushed headlong Into the
"tih, Lawrence! My darling. Don't!
Don't!" she shrieked frantically, but
lawrence, stilt holding the bottle,
inly turned angrily aud pointed to
the dangling eauva.
"You he ruined my life," he be
iron, birly, "by ilnotroylng my
faith and trust in you," but ifore he
xiuld say more, something so strange
had bspiienud that for a nioiuu he
rented thoroughly dated by a sudden
