These Creatures Live In Odd Nests
Composed of Air Bubbles.
raratllse fishes come from Japan,
nnd their nests are very odd Indeed,
for they are composed of air bubbles.
Unlike goldfish, they will breed and
raise their young In an aquarium or
even in a glass globe, and they raise
three or four broods each year.
Ordinarily th male paradise fish Is
cl' a dull silvery color, but when ho
goes u-courtlng he puts on a brilliant
coat, striped with streaks of red, blue
and green. When tho female fish Is
ready to lay eggs, she builds her nest
bccrotloti that comes from her mouth.
Tho eggs rise in the water and find a
tho eggs are hatched. If the air bub
bles burst, the male fish blows some
more, so that the nest Is always lloat
lng on tho surface of the water.
At the end of five days the young oro
hatched out. They cannot swim, but
cling like tadpoles to the air bubbles.
If one falls, the father fish catches it
in hLs mouth and blows it up nmoug
the bubbles again. Ho does not leave
his little ones until they are able to
swim, and then they take care of them
selves. Postpone Sitting of Douma.

Jack," she said pleadingly, "don't say
you're in a bad mood. Don't say you
want to postpone again." She looked
up at him and laughed a little In mock
I.ooer was at a loss.
Another silence followed, while Lil
lian waited; then she frowned sudden
ly and rose from the couch. Like
many indolent people, she possessed a
touch of obstinacy, and now that her
triumph over Chlleoto was obtained,
now Mint she bad vindicated her right
to command him, her original purpose
came uppermost again. Cold or Inter
ested, Indifferent or attentive, she In
tended to make use of him.
She moved to the fire and stood look
ing down Into It.
"Jack," she began gently, "a really
amazing thing has happened to me. I
do so want you to throw some light."
I.oder said nothing.
There was a fresh pause while she
softly smoothed the silk embroidery
that edged her gown. Then once more
she looked up at him.
"Did I ever tell you," she began,
"that I was once in a railway accident
on a funny little Italian railway cen
turies before I met you'f" She laughed
softly and with a pretty air of confi
dence turned from tho fire and re
sumed her seat.
"Astrupp had caught a fever In Klor
ence, and I was rushing away for fear
of the Infection, when our stupid little
train ran off the rails near I'lstorla
and smi.shed itself up. Fortunately wo
were within half a mile of a village, so
we weren't quite bereft. The village

"Hut to come to tho end of tho story.
I never saw this man bIjico that long
ago tlmo until until tho night of
Blanche's party!" She spoke slowly, to
give full effect to her words. Then she
waited for Ids surprise.
But the result was not whnt she ex
pected. He said nothing, and, with nn
nbrupt movement, lie drew his band
from between hers.
"Aren't you surprised?" she asked at
last, with a delicate note of reproof.
Ho started slightly, ns if recalled to
tho necessity of tho moment. "Sur
prised?" ho Bold. "Why should I bo
surprised? One person more or loss at
n big party isn't astonishing. Besides,
you expect a man to turn up sooner or
later In his own country. Why should
I be surprised?"
She lay back luxuriously. "Because,
my dear boy," she said softly, "it is a
mystery! It's one of those fascinating
mysteries that come once in n life
time." I.oder made no movement. "You
mifit explain," be said very quietly.
Lillian smiled. "That's Just whnt I
want to do. When I was in my tent
on the night of Blanche., party, a man
came to be gazed for. lie came Just
like anybody else and laid ids bauds
upon tho table. Ho had strong, thin
hands like well, rather like yours,
ttut ho wore two rings on the third fin

ring and a phi In gold one."
Loder moved hi hand imperceptibly
till tho cushion covered it. Lillian's
words causel him no surprise, scarcely
even any trepidation. lie felt now
that ho bad expected them, even wait

reassured her, but his words left her
uncertain. C'hllcole was rarely em
phatic. With a touch of hesitation she
went on with her tale:
"As I told you. ho was the first to
find us to find me, I should say, for
my stupid maid was having hysterics
farther up the line, and Ko Ko was
lost. I remember tho first thing I did
was to send him in search of Ko Ko"
Notwithstanding his position, Loder
found occasion to smile. "Did he suc
ceed?" he said dryly.
"Succeed? Oh, yes, ho succeeded."
She also smiled Involuntarily. "Poor
Ko Ko was stowed away under tho lug
gage van, and after quite a lot of trou
ble he pulled him out. When It wns
all done the dog was quite unhurt and
livelier than ever, but the Englishman
had his finger almost bitten through.
Ko Ko was a dear, but bis teeth and
his temper were both very sharp." She
laughed once more In soft amusement.

laugh. "And you tied up tho wound, I

his hand gently once or twice. "As I
