patch of soft color against the green about
Julian Carre, looking at her, felt his
heart throb fast, etormily, paaaionately.
"What ia ia the girl?" he said to him
eelf, as he watched her from the shade
of the high bridge opposite, "that draws
me to ber In spite of all my common sense.
She ia not as beautiful as Aurtry Toilet,
nor aa Lady Mary, even; yet they are aa
water unto wine compared with ber."
She had not aeen blm. She was not
even thinking of bim. When he crossed
the rosd and stood before her she clasped
her hands with a sharp cry. The pretty
color had faded from check to lip, for ahe
thought, when she first looked up, that it
was Fercy Stanhope.
"Have I the misfortune to startle yon
again?" be said, penitently.
"Of course you startled me. Where did
you come from?"
"I waa passing, and I heard your voice.

In one month more It would be Esther
Durrant'a wwlding day. A shiver of paiu
ahouk the girl aa ahe thought of It
Cuuld it really be true that the man she
had loved and trusted In with all ber
heart would take another woman aa his
aife when thoe four short weeks were
over? It seemed to ber that It must have
bern far more than a month aince thia
love and truat hud been crushed aad
h iii-i If d out of her life o roughly.
The night ahe hud recognized Percy
Stanhope's face in Eather'a locket seemed
a night wt far U-bind her In a dense
shade and horror of pain.
"Oh, cruel, cruel T ahe had moaned to
herself many a time, thinking of bim.
"Oh, cruel ana false!" Yet, had he been
so f.W after all? She had told bim abe
did not love bim, and he had believed her
and had straightway carried to another
the love she would not have. Could he
have done this if his love had been a real
heart-root? That waa tbe question. How
would it have borne the transplanting If
it bed been such love, strong and deep,
aa she had once thought It?
"I could forgive bim," Dulcie thought,
looking out at the pale April sky, "if he
bad only waited a little while. But be
did not While I was sitting in old Pere
Jacques' salon, listening for his ring at
the door, he had gone away from me for
ever, had come home here, and was busy
winning Esther to love bim, juat as he
bad once won me."
There was the smart That was the
wound to which the proud little beart
could not grow reconciled.
"I will do the best I can for myaclf,"
ahe had said to Esther. Was she doing
it? Was she not playing with men's
hearts aa If they were croquet balls, with
out one care for tbe future that lay be
"You have been reaming, Dolcie," ahe
said to herself, with a little bitter sigh,
"and you will waken up 'oat In tbe cold
If you don't take heed."
That very night, when the house waa
quiet Dulcie sat down to write a letter.
It waa a long letter to her Uncle Durer
and it told him tbe truth about her posi
tion. "I shall have no home here," she wrote,
"when once Esther Is married." But she
did not tell hiin that the bridegroom
would be their old friend Percy Stanhope.
"I should be wretched here, though Mrs.
Hardinge urges me kindly enough to stay.
If you have things so settled now that
you can offer me the ahelter of a roof, I
will come back to you. I am able and
willing to work for the nst."
When tbe letter waa written, and in
cloaed In its envelope, the girl looked at
it for a few minuts Intently.
"That shall decide me," she said to
herself. "If he says 'come,' I vwll go, and
leave all these new friends behind me. If
he does not aay 'come,' then "
But ahe did not finish tbe sentence. A
swift stinging fluah came into ber cheeks,
and her lips quivered ominoualy,
The day of LjtUy Harvey's dinner party
came at lest a brilliant April day, the
heavens cloudleas, tbe sunshine warm, the
air fragrant with spring'a perfumes.
Down in tbe beart of Brierton Wood
spring beld high carnival Tbe banks
were purple with wild panaies; the moas
was emerald green; the young leaves
thrilled and quivered in the very testacy
of life. Down the long walks went Dul
cie, her bat in ber hand, her sleeping
skirts rustling over the leaves aud twig.
Dulcie flung hersflf down here to rest
nd folded her amis under her head for
a oillow. Tbe sunshine beat warmly on
her uncovered head and face, but she did
not nrud that SI'e reveled in the warmth
and the quiet, the drowsy, soothing rustle
of the tranches, and the ripnle of the
flowing water. But after a while ahe be
gan to tire f it Animated nature had
the strongest charm for Dulcie.
Presently she beard a whistle, and a
scramble, and a man's voice a voice that
she knew as web as ahe knew her owd
calling out "Dowrv you brutel Down,
Jumbo," and she waj rather pleased than
He came on whistling, and tramping
down the grass with long, heavy strides,
and at tbe bend of the bank be saw ber.
She bad raised ber&clf on ber eltiow to
listen, and her upturned face, with the
warmth of tbe sunshine in Its vivid
smiles, waa the Crat thing he noticed. Ju
lian Carre stopped suddenly, and the
whistle died on his lips, with a soft, sin
gle note like tbe call of a bird. She was
almost at hia feet as he fte-sd, a lovelr,
brilliant little creat'nr wha some of tie

His eyea sparkled, bis cheeks glowed like
a girl'a through lifcir tau.

In addition to tho failure iu India there

to our faruiere the memory of hotter
days when wheat raising waa profit
The Republican press and orators
loudly proclaimed throughout the laud
that the advance In the price of wheat
waa due to Republican legislatloa, aud
Republican Congressmen sought dili
gently to Impress upon their constitu
ents that credit waa due to them for
bringing about the advanced price of
w heat and claimed that It was hut she
beginning of an era of better prices
generally, that would place the nation
on the high road "to prosperity. The
Republican press claimed that aa
wheat waa advancing In price at the
same time that ellver bullion was fall
ing In price, It furnlahcd complete and
conclusive evidence that tbe argument
advajicad by tbe Democrats In lsw(J,
that thfre was tome relation between
tie pHco of wheat and silver bullion,
was completely exploded.
They forgot, however, t tell the pv
ple that the only ground upon" which
any silver advocate claimed that a rela
tion beiween the price of silver and
wheat existed waa that whfat from
both gold and aliver aiandard countrie
waa being sold In the same market
In competition. Under thla condition
they claimed that a bushel of wheat
from Russia, the Argentine or tho
United State would be sold In the om
mon market for a like quantity f gold.

Is an undisputed fact that silver In In

as at any tlms In the past Therefore,
when the wheat of India er Ruasla la

aiho true that in proportion aliver
