A. Henry Savage Landor, explorer, who will
non mate an attempt to reach the south pole. Is
of the opinion that Lieut. Shackleton failed
hrough having a cumbersome snd unnecessarily
large expedition.
Mr. l^andor’s theory is that a small caravan
of trusted and hardy men, lightly equipped, like
his expedition* through Asia and Africa, is ber.t.
The warm season will Iks chosen for Landor's
dash to do what Lieut- Shackleton so nearly suc
ceeded itt accomplishing, and it is now planned to
consume the btst part of a year in the attempt.
Mr. Landor's activity ia aeronautic investiga
tions gives color to the rumor that an airship will
be used by him to reach the j>ole. Nothing deli
nit* is aacettaleabl* but it is known that for a.
long time Mr. Landor has be. a CEgaged in the

Effects of Season of Net and Lace !
Sleeves Must Be Carefully
Elbows which have becu scarified by '
a season of net and lace sleeves will
need very careful cuddling before they i
may appear with grace in the ball
dresses of winter. One authority ad
vises rubbing the joint every night
with olive or almond oil, giving it a
good scrub with a stiff brush and soap
and water beforehand. A careful dry
ing with a soft old cloth is an im
portant point, but it is while the flesh
is still warm and the pores open that
the oil is supplied. In extreme enses
of roughness the operation is helped
by an oil-spakod pod which should be
bound on at night.
A flesh brush may also be employed
to advantage on the small eruptions
which sometimes appear on the upper
arm and upon the back between the
shoulders. As lack of circulation is
generally the cause of these, the fric
tion will cause their etftire disappear
ance in time and keep tho skin im
mune from a second crop The flesh
brush is likewise necessary for remov
ing the dead skin from the body, for
if these dry particles are left to
smother the pores the skin oau never
present a healthy or clean look. Use
the brush with a live-minutes’ dry rub,
and then after the bath wield it cour
ageously for a good flve minutes more.
Horre Centerpieces.
The beautiful round centerpieces
and dollies with lace edge, that are
sold in the shops at a good price, can
very easily be duplicated at home at
a small cost. First, cut. a round piece
of linen any size desired, roll the edge,
draw up the lace by the thread, and
sew to the linen, having the lace full
enough so the outer edge lies smooth.
When the lacc has been sewed entire
ly around, place the two edges togeth
er and button hole stitch them, so the
joining will hardly show. Now damp
en the lace thoroughly, and press from
the center outwaru with a hot iron.
This will take out the gathers and tho
lace will be perfectly, flut and smooth.

As the train rolled steadily on its |
way. Horace Leith leaned upon the j
car window sill gazing out upon the
New Knglund landscape. There was j
nothing particularly attractive in the;
prospect, hut it was many years since I

Uis old village homo of Chelsea, and 1
he was endeavoring to recall certain i
features of the journey which had 1
once been familiar. It was a tar cry j
front those old days to the present, j
when tee had gained recognition as a I
successful business man in New York, i
Suddenly hfs aiusings were inter- ;
rupted by a jerk of the car and the j
sharp call of the brskeman for another i
station. He turned around arid watched
the passengers who were entering and
leaving the car. A slight woman
with a baby In ber arms, attired in
black, took the seat directly in front
of hlta and drew his attention for a
moment. The train started again, and
he leaned back in his former position.
Presently the baby climbed back on
the seat, in one hand a rubber doll and
the other clutching the plush cushion.
In her efforts to attract Leith’s atten
tion the doll fell to the floor and two
red little Ups tsr.ued an imperious
"Man, get baby's doll." she lisped. ;
and Leith, reaching down, obeyed the j
mandate. When he returned the doll
the owner smiled rapturously. She !

broken sentences
Glancing at the mirror in front of
him, ho became aware that he could
obtain a full view- of the figure of the j
baby’s mother therein. Her face,
however, was partially hidden by a
crepe veil. After awhile she ap j
poured to grow restless and threw j
back the veil, disclosing two flushed ;
cheeks and a pair of dark blue eyes

tain. Ho thought long and earnestly,
but the riddle remained unsolved.
Then by different channels his mind
traveled back through the years, to
tho home of bis boyhood, the little
village, the river he used to swim in
and his farewell to Chelsea.
And at this point memory supplied
tho missing lick. It was she—Lucy

loved so long ago. He mused on.

for tho great city, when he kissed he:

face under the starlight of his last
hours at home. A mist obscured his
vision and something suspiciously like
a sob lingered in his throat. Ten
years had passed How quickly ono
forgets, and sacred promises are
broken, while youthful affection dies
in the cold atmosphere of the struggle
for fame and riches. A nameless long
ing oppressed him. How ho wished
he could talk to her. Perhaps through
the baby he might manage It.
The child responded to an invita
tion to come and hear his watch tick.
No persuasion was needed to keep
her on bis knee, for she was easily
amused. Presently the warm at
mosphere. combined with the motion
of the train, exercised a soothing ef
fect upon her. the blue eyes closed
languidly, and baby drifted into the

At last Leith casually remarked that
his destination was Chelsea, ami

same place. Tbs conversation drift

heard how she had left her home In

when her husband died, returning with

"1 knew her," she replied, softly,
"but she is not there now—she—she

"Bo she has gone?” queried Leith:
“married, 1 suppose. Who was the
lucky fellow who won her'.'"’
He felt sure that, she had recognised
him now, but allowed matters to take
their course and awaited her reply
with a brave show of composure.
"His name was Logan.” she said,
tremulously. "Lucy Mayburn was true
to her promise lor seven long years:
her promise to you. But she was an
orphan, practically alone in the world,

The voice of the speaker faltered
and broke, her eyes iillcd with tears,
and turning away her face, she
sobbed bitterly. She had betrayed her
self, but she no longer cared.
Leith laid the sleeping child gently
beside him aDd bent over bis old

“Don't cry, Lucy," lie whispered:

She glanced up with startled eyes.

"Yes. Lucy, 1 knew you,” bo said
softly. "And perhaps, dear, it was

The other passengers in the rai
were watching curiously the two act
ors in a little drama which they could
not understand, but neither Leith ntn
the woman beside him were condone
of their surroundings, and the buby
slumbered peacefully on. The long
warning whistle of the locomotive
j shrilled through the air, as tho train
neared Chelsea. Lucy timidly slipped
