There! were only three people In the room besides the whist players; he old gentleman who sat in the cor ner of the room and was always read ing, and Julia McCullough and young Stevens, who were in another corner, half shielded by the Japanese screen. Of the card players one was old Mr. McCullough, to whom whist was the business of life. A second was old Mrs. McCullough, who played excellently, but never could bo utterly deaf to the claims of the outside world. The third was Mr. Richmond, a successful lawyer, something over 60, with closely-cut, iron-gray hair, quick, keen eyes, a manner which very likely had been nervous, but was now only incisive, and an utterly absorbed attention to the matter In hand. People said Richmond had had a disappointment in love, which had kept him a bachelor and perhaps encouraged the habit of absorption a fact which caused Julia McCullough and young Stevens to regard him with deep and respectful sympathy. The fourth player was old Mr. McCul lough's partner, and just at present she groped under such a cloud of disapproval that it would have been a relief to have escaped notice alto gether. She was a silent, smooth, unassertive, unmarried woman, whose game Mr. McCullough had trained, trimmed and pruned in season and out of season until, as a matter of self-preservation, sbe had learnod to play better than ho. . Hut it was owing to her that Mr. McCullough now fidgeted in his chair and glared at a nine-spot as if each club on its surface were a weapon of assassination. It was but 8 o'clock in the evening, and she was playing only till tha stage came to take her to the train on which ' she was to leave break up the game and leave. No wonder Mr. McCullough was almost speechless with rage. No wonder that Mrs. McCullough fatally wandered, so that she mistook a knave for a king and pulled in her opponent's trick. Even Mr. Rich mond, who scarcely knew how Miss Selwyn looked, so rarely he raised his eyes from the tablo, folt that her conduct was injurious. May I be permitted to -inquire, Charlotte," asked Mr. McCullough in an awful voico, "since when a knavo has been advanced to the dis tinction of taking a king, of the same suitP" "Gracious!" admitted Mrs, Mc Cullough, pushing the card to Miss Selwyn, who was so crowded by the universal disapproval that she re ceived them as a free gift. "Of course it is impossible to be even decently attentive in the midst of such willful disturbance,11 re marked Mr. McCullough. "if it were not a case of illness,11 began Miss Selwyn, agologetically. "People have no business to be ill,11 snapped Mr. McCullough. "Do you suppose Susan will be able to get there, too?" asked Mrs. Mc Cullough. I hope so,11 returned Mis Selwyn. "Come, come, Charlotte!" -exclaimed Mr. McCullough; "for heav en's sake, let ua play while wo can!" . Julia McCullough and young Ste vens were talking in low tones be hind the screen. "Did you really pin It up?" asked Julia, with apprehensive pleasure. "I really did," returned young Stevens, "in the hall. I knew how strained the situation would be to night, and as it is my last evening I wanted it to be peacefuL They might have asked one of us to take a hand." "I wouldn't have done it," said Julia, firmly. "Yea you would, you poor lamb, or I would have taken your place and lost my temper. lean get along with your uncle anywhere but at the whist-table." One of tbe hotel servants came to the door the stage was leaving. Miss Selwyn rose, looking ready to cry. The cards had just been dealt I am very sorry," she said. "Sorry!" growled Mr. McCullough; "we may have to play with a dummy l" "There isn't a soul In the house that can play," sighed Mrs. McCul lough. Richmond rose to go with Miss Selwya to tbe door, IU put her in the carriage and re turned. Not a word bad been spoken. Itv walked restlessly to a bmikcaae and read tha titles. Tba old man la tbe Corner burl4 himself deeper In bis pages; the young girl and her companion bwama mere Involved la winding worsted, Mrs. McCullough sortod her band mm hanlratly. Mr, Mot utloujfh drummed oa th table and looked ready to burst with rage. It waa as If nature were preparing for a cataclysm. Suddenly they all, flieept the reader, looked up. A wwmaa slood la tbe dkHray one-look In, though aot a younf auitiaa, liar (ray hair roe straight from her handsome forehead) hr flear rom pie slue wee a little Hushed, but 'he spoke with perfect te'f-poeaessWHt.

' "Pinned up in'tbe'han?" repeated old Mr. McCullough, doubtfully. "Yes." she said distinctly, with a swift glance that took in all the occupants of the room; "the notice saying that there were three whist players in the east card-room who wanted a fourth at a quarter past eight Only good players need apply." . Richmond glanced at the young man with a certain severity, behind which was a gleam of amusement, and came toward the card table. "1" began young Stevens; but it was old Mra McCollough who settled tbe matter. "Well,Sl she interrupted, "do come and sit down. I'm sure I don't know how you got here, but we're glad enough to see you. Pll play with Mr. McCullough because 1 am used to him. You can play with my part ner." We're wasting a lot of precious time," said Mr. McCullough, and the handsome woman came forward from the doorway and picked up the cards that lay at her place, Richmond seated himself opposite, and for ten minutes not a word was spoken. She did play well one of those intelligent, pliable games which show science, memory and compre hension. Richmond was delighted with her. If at a critical point be planned a brilliant stroke, she caught his intention Instantly and co-operated. He was not curious about bcr personally; he had barely looked at her; she was simply his skillful com rade. ' It was her deal, and as she picked up the cards she shufllod them once. Richmond's eyes were on her fingers, and he started a little. She mixed the cards by an odd bit of manipulation. He had never seen but one other person do it The next time he watched her; then he glanced from her fingers to her face in sudden, sharp inquiry. Her eyes were on bis; they woro a look that might have been triumph. The game went on. The low tones of the young people were almost whispers. "If you had that ace you were a long time playing it, Charlotte," said Mr. McCullough. at tho endof a band. "One doesn't win by being in a hurry," sbe answered, easily. "No,11 said the stranger, speaking for almost the first time, "one does not" The words were simple, but to Richmond's ear they were emphatic. He looked at her with a certain air of suspense, and again she met his look. Another hand was played. You did it that time." said Rich mond, at the end of it, as he scored three tricks. "Yes," said she.smiling, "I thought it was time I took matters into my own hands." Ho turned a little pale, and dealt the cards with his eyes on her face. Ihe evening slipped on; tbe game was closo and interesting. "That play of yours was an unusual one," said Kichmond, "but success ful." ' " "Yes," she answered, slowly; "I broke all the rules to do it It was a forced lead, but there seemed nothing else to do." There vre bright red spots in her cheeks and she held her handsome head very high as she spoke. He laid down the cards as if to stop. play In? ; then "It saved the game," be said con cisely, as he picked them up again "I thought you bad that queen, Charlotte," said Mr. McCullough in ireful reproach, "from the way you played before. "it is dangerous to draw infer ences," said Richmond quickly, look ing across the table. "Not usually," she answered light ly, "if one knows one's partner." At 10 o'clock Richmond, instead of taking up the hand she had just dealt him, put both his arms on the table and leaned across it Mra Mc Cullough looked as if the skies would fall, and Mr. McCullough said: "Come! Come!" Richmond heeded neither of them. "Will you tell me why you played as you did?" he asked with sudden sternness. His .partner looked at him and her eyes fell for a moment Then, with her first full composure, she answered: "It has taken me a long time to return your lead; but I found, soon enough, that it is from what is my strongest suit as welL" "Come, come!" said Mr. Mo Cullough; "a great deal of talk about a hand that is past and gone. Pick up your cards, man!11 Instead of doing so Richmond stood up. The young people stopped talk ing, and even the reading old man laid down hi book. Is your name still Frances Kfflng ham!11 be akcd.

Mrs, Keeler, whose husband works In the lumber woods near Moscow, Idaho, went to town lately to do some trading. Her husband was to meet her at the store and accompany her home. She waited until nearly dark, and as he hod not come she ttarted home alone, carrying a sack of flour. The Keeler place is three miles from Moscow-, and the road la through the woods. It waa quite dark before Mrs. Keeler,was near home, and just ahead of her she saw what she supposed was ber husband standing in the road waiting for her. She was in a bad humor because he had failed to meet her at the store, and began giving him liberal pieces of her mind as she approached. When she got within a few feet of him he began to growl back 'at her so fiercely that she stopped and then made the alarming discovery that she was confronted by a big bear instead of her husband. With a shriek she dropped the sack of flour and took to her heels. She had run some distance when she dis covered wha .she thought was another bear coming toward her. She stopped In the road and filled the woods with shrieks that were plainly heard at Moscow, Hut this bear was her hus band, and when she recovered herself sufficiently to recogelze the fact, she struck him a blow with her fist between the eyes that knocked him flat In the road, and then promptly fainted. Her husband had quite a time in fetching her to, but when he had suc ceeded, she explained matters aa they went together toward home. The bear waa gone, but he had scattered the contents of the flour sack along the road for twenty yards. A PLEASANT PROSPECT. Had a Warm Time to Iook forward to . la the Near roture. A ragged oolored boy about twelve years old sat on the sidewalk in the full glare of the noon-day sun with his back against the board fence, A very solid old man, walking with great dignity, came along and halted to look the urchin over and inquire; "Hoy, hain't I done seen yo' sum whar befo'? Hain't yo1 de wldder Taylor's son?" "Yes," was tbe reply, 'An' what yo' loafln 'round yere In dis fashun fur?" "Am dat yo'r bizness?" saucily de manded the boy. "Am itl Am it!

Night brings to me dreams of sliver streams that murmur through the wild wood, and sylvan dales and quiet vales, where once I roamed, In child hood; I seem to see the mighty tree whose boughs I yet remember; the pond where I swam in July and skated in December. Oh, .vision blest, of peace and rest and sunny days and gladness! When breaks the dawn you all are gone and I am left in sadness. Fnr morning brings the wenrv things that I must know forever; the burn ing street, the tolling feet, the long and fierce endeavor; the bills to pay, the words to say that I so oft have spoken, the loads to pack until my back is pretty nearly broken. If men could snooze for months and lose no time in bitter waking, this life would be a thing of glee and hearts would not be breaking. Splendid" Was Made fur America. I asked Commander Dickens what observations the duke de Veragua made at the world's fair. He in formed me that during the tour of the exposition buildinga both the duke and duchess frequently exclaimed: Magnlflcencia, preeloao!" "Every thing they saw on the grounds," said the commander, "waa magnificent and precious. They were almost speech less when they saw Niagara. All through New York state, and es pecially during our journey along the Hudson at sunset, the ducal party was lost in wonder. The duchess, who had been gaslng upon the land scape for some time, turned to me and said: 'The word "splendid" must have been made todttscrlbe America." Oreads' ilumtMiln.
