bnppon? That's an oany question to
ask, but n hard ono to answer.
People always used to say, from my
girlhood up, that Penny Lllhnvcn was
born tobe an old maid, I wasn't a
pretty cnlld. My oyoa wero too big,
and my, hair grow too low on my fore
head, and thcro was a sallow look
about my skin. And then I had a way
of always putting things away and
tidying up rooms aftor other people,
and iny trunks and bureau drawers
wero neat as wax, and I couldn't bear to
boo anything In tho way of careless
ness or disorder; so Urn peoplo would
look at mo and laugh, and say:
"Oh, she'll bo an old maid, as suro as
I Used to cry soniotlmca to myself, all
about It; but no ono else know how I
feit about tho matter, lloydon Groy
was the most mercllona tease of them

wo went to Sunday school together, for
ho Used io hldo behind tho doors and
pounce QUt at me, and throw stones at
my pet kitten, and call mo names, and
twit mo with my pug noso and big
oyos. My unlucky name, too, was a
sourco of aggravation on his part.
"You'll bo nn old maid, Pen," ho
would say, "Nobody with such n namo
as Ponclopo over got man led."
I hated Roy Grey, and yet thero was
something nbout the boy I couldn't help
liking," 'dftcr nil. I could not forget
that when I had tho Bcarlot fovor, and
lny at, death's door, Roydon sat under
my window, and I heard him say, tho
first day I sat up In a big easy chair:
"Well, I'm not sorry that Pen is bct

particularly courteous criticism.

IjjWas an old maid In good earnest
when Roy camo back. They say no
woman passos tho ago of twonty-flvo
without recolvlng at least ono offer of
marriage, but I bellovo I was an ex
ception to that rule I never had an
offer. All tho girls who had grown up
nt my side married, and became bloom
Ingvwives and happy mothers; but Pen
Ltlhaven remained unsought and un
wpoed. Itjiscd to mortify mo dreadfully un-
TWSIT ME WITH MY PUG NOSE,
til I got to be thirty, and then by de
grees;' I left off caring for It, and mado
up my mind to bo as happy as 1 could
all by myself, So, as my near rela
tions wero all dead, and I had a tolera
bly snug llttlo sum to fall back upon,
I took a pretty llttlo cottage, nud had
my niece, Edith Lonsdale, to live with
mo, for Edith was pretty and penniless,
and IJelt as If Provldenco meant mo to
stand in tho place of a mother to that
Sho was soventcen, and as pretty as
tho freshest rose in nil my garden.
Tall and slim, with deep nine oyes, hair
like heaven's sunshine, and a complex
Ion all Pink and white, you loved to
look at her Just as you loved to look at
n flower or a statuo, or any other beau
"You'll be married some of these
days, Edith," I said to her, "for you're
too pretty to bo left long with the
lonely old maid, and then I shall be,
oh! so busy and so happy, helping you
to furnish your house, and make up
your pretty wedding things."
We 'were sitting on our little porch
In the summer evening twilight, my
niece end I, when a tall, straight fig
ure tame up the walk, and I looked
wonderingly to Bee who It was. Wiyi
halrblack as a raven's wing, skin
bronzed by years of sun and exposuro,
features straight and clearly cut, and
eyes In whose dark, mirthful glimmer
there'lfngercd a strangely familiar
light, he stood there smiling down into
"Ib this Glen Cottage?" he asked,
wlthhe utmost gravity.
"Yes. sir," I answered, "but '
"Doh't you remember me, Pen Lll
baven? Don't you remember Roydon
And'then, sure enough, I did remem
ber Jhe boy who had gone away
twenty odd years before.
Well, he had made his fortuue In
Venezuela, in the gold mines of that
fmmemm n m
country, and camo bank to enjoy It'
nmonr his friends. All! to think that
thoro woro so few loft! Of courso wo
had a great deal to say to oao another,
and a thousand and one questions to
nsk; and, as I don't claim to have any
thing of tho saint in my composition, I
don't deny thnt It did make mo fool
Just a llttlo hard when I saw him sit
down by Edith Lonsdnlo and talk to
hor, and look Into her honost bluo eyes,
before I had half told him what had
happened In tho villago during tho
dreary years of his nbsonco. JJut tho
feeling didn't last long.
"It's nntural enough, I'm sure," I
reasoned with myself, "and only what
I ought to expect. Sho is as protty as n
picture, and now, if Roy will fall In
lovo with her, I can bo Just an happy In
their happiness as If It had come to mo
tho blessing of a good man's love."
So I persunded mysolf; yet It was a
llttlo hard to feel mysolf shut out from
all tho boauty and swectnoss of a
woman's nntural lot. I think I never
felt tho bitterness of being an old
maid qulto as acutely as I did that
night, when 'Roydon had gono to tho
villngo Inn, and Edith lay sleeping on
tho pillow nt my side, and tho scent of
tho honeysuckles camo wafting in at
ovory stir of tho dewy night breeze.
Well, ho enmo often to our house, and
I used to raako all sorts of llttlo ex
cuses to loavo him with Edith, whllo I
wont up stnirs to sit by mysolf and
weave little threads of romanco In and
out of tho meshes of my fancy knitting.
Ono dny Roydon Grey camo to me,
for young Burnhnm hud called, and
wan chatting with Edith, and I daro say
Roy thought I looked lonoly with my
work In tho hall.
"Pen," said he, "what do you think I
am going to do?"
A dim idea he was going to mnko mo
his confldanto flitted across my mind.
"I don't know," I Bald, smiling.
"What Is it. Roy?"
"I'm going to refurnish tho old house.
It looks dim and dusky and old-fashioned
now; and I wnnt It to be fresh
nnd sunny and winsome. Will you help
mc with your ndvlco and counsel?"
Of courso I promised; and for tho
next two or three weeks wo woro as
busy as bees.
"Wo mustn't lot her know what wo
aro about," ho Bald that night, with a
motion of his head toward Edith.
"Oh, no, to be suro not," I answered;
"it would opoil tho surprise."
How protty wo did make tho old
place! Every room was Hko a casket
ready to recelvo a Jewel; tho bright
carpets glowed in bouquets and mosses
and trailing arabesques of Persian
brightness, all ovor tho floor; tho win
dows wero draped with neat and taste
ful shades; tho pictures on tho walls
seemed prospectlvo of tropic sunsots
nnd soft Alpine moons; whllo ovory
vaso nnd stand and bookcase was ar
ranged as I know Edith would Hko It.
"Roy," said I, guardedly, tho after
noon that our work of transformation
was complete, and wo stood congratu
lating each other on our micceascul en
deavorsfor up to UiIb time I had tiocn
very discreet, nnd asked no questions
"whoa shall tho queen of this en
chanted realm tako possession of her
fairy bower? In other wordB" and 1
could not help laughing at his puzzled
look "when Bhall you bo married?"
"So you have guessed it, you demure
"Yes, I have guessed It."
"Well, what do you think would be
an auspicious tlmo?"
"Let me see; this Is July. Why don't
you say tho first of August?"
"Tho first of August bo it then," he
nssonted. "You aro sure thero is
everything hero you can possibly
"Because," ho went on, "when you
come hero to live "
"Am I to live here?" I asked. "But,
Roy, perhaps sho wouldn't Hko it."
"Sho? Who Is sho?" he inquired.
"Why, Edith, to bo sine."
"What has Edith got to say, 1 Bhould
llko to know?" cried Roydon, laughing.
"My darling llttlo Pen, If you are satis
fied, tho rest of the world mny say, do,
and think what it pleases. Sinco you
hnvo promised to bo my wife "
"I!" The cozlly furnished little break
fast room seemed to swim around mo.
"Stop, Roydon, for a mluutc, please; I
I don't qulto understand."
"You said yourself, iha first of Au
gust!" "But I thought it was Edith!"
"Edith, Indeed! A mere child a
schoolgirl, whoso wholo heart, moro
over, Is wrapped up in Harry Burnham!
Why, Pen, where have your eyes been?"
Where, indeed? Could I have been
blind all this time so lesolutcly, In
"Do you love me, Pen? Don't look
tho other way; I will be answered!"
I did love him; I had loved him long
and tenderly, and I told him so, not
without some blushlngs and misgiv
"Oh, Pen," he whispered, holding me
close to his heart, "If you know tho
years and years I had been looking for
ward to this time!"
.So I was married quietly, of course,
and with no bridesmnld but Edith; but
I think the sun never shono on a hap
pier bride. And I live in tho old plnce,
and Edith Is here with me, but next
week wo are to have another wedding,
and my blue-eyed blossom goes from
me to Harry Burnham's care.
But, as I Bald before, it all seems like
a dream; and as I sit alone In my
beautiful home, r almost fancy myself
a solitary old maid again, until Roy
don's footstep in the hall, and his
voice calling for his "dear little wife,"
rouses mo to a sense of my new life and
And I dare say I shall get used to it

ISSUES OF THE DAY.
How Would Our I'timier 1,1 ko Uoo
of tho llnphlnV llllt AruIii What Hn
Cone rem I)ono J'rco Cdimnorco with
Representative Hopkins Informs tho
public thnt hlB reciprocity bill is much
"higher Up and wldor out" than was tho
third section of tho McKlnloy bill. It is
"comprohensivo enough to covor all
phason of our commercial rolatlons with
other countries." It specifies five dif
ferent conditions under which tho pres
ident Is authorized to mako commer
cial dickers, as folows:
First, whero tho exports of such coun
tries or colonics arc In oxcess of their
imports from tho United States.
Socond, whero their chief articles of
oxport aro admitted freo into tho Unit
Third, whero their exports nro ad
mitted into tho United Stntos at on
averago rato of duty lower than the
avorago rato of duty ImpoBOd upon the
productions of tho United States by
their customs tariff.
Fourth, whoro thoy impose higher
ratoo of duty on tho products of the
United States than aro Imposed on tho
Bamo or similar produots of other na
tions. Fifth, where thoy Impose restrictions
and regulations to govern tho lmporta
tlona of merchandise of tho Unltod
Statea that In tho estimation of tho
president may be unjust, excessive and
obstructive to commerce.
Mr. Hopkins professes to believe that
If his plan should he adoptod and put
In operation this country 'could "drlvo
out English trndo nnd monopolize the
Brazilian markets," and for that matter
all Latin American markets. The
nbovo conditions aro given in full In
Mr. Hopkins' own words In order that
tho reader may bo able to examine
them and see for himself that the vory
samo conditions could bo mado the basis
of trade dickers by England and other
European countries not only with tho
Spanish American countries, but with
tho United States also.
It would bo a waste of spaco to go
over them ono by ono nnd show how
thoy nro all In a greater or less degrco
available for tho purnoso of English
dickers with tho Latin Americans,
leaving us at tho samo disadvantage
relatively, as at present, and leaving to
tho English tho Bamo advantage of low
er cost of manufactured products. Any
one who will look over the conditions,
keeping this point In mind, will read
ily bco that wo have no advantage In
such a contest that would not bo fully
offset by tho advantage the Latin Ameri
cans would secure by buying the cheap
goods of England and other European
Tho point specially deserving of at
tention Is thnt Europe could serve us
precisely as Mr. Hopkins' proposes that
wo shall serve our neighbors to tho
south of us. England takes half of all
our exports and admits them all free,
with tho exception of tobacco, which Is
taxed solely for revenue, as England
produces no tobacco. On tho other
hand, we Imposo our highest duties on
such articles as the peoplo of Great
Britain manufacture. Hero aro pre
cisely tho conditions, which, according
to Mr. Hopkins, would warrnnt Great
Britain In saying to us: "We take
your products freo of duty. Now we
demand that you cut down your duties
on our goods from one-half to three
fourths or wo will clap high discrimin
ating duties on your wheat, your flour,
your cotton, your beef, your pork and
tho various other things you are selling
us In great quantities." Great Britain
can do that to us as well as wo can do
It to Brazil, and with as much assurance
of success In bringing us to terms with
tho "reciprocity" club.
How would Mr. Hopkins like that?
How would our farmers llko It those
toilers of tho Hold in whom Hopkins
and his republican brethren profess to
tako bo lively an Intorcst? Probably
they would not relish It at all. Ex.
"Freo Cpinmerce with All Nation.
Instead of ombarraBslng commerce
under piles of regulating laws, duties
and prohibitions, could It "bo relieved
of all Its shackles In all parts of the
world, could every country bo employed
In producing that which It Is best fitted
to produce and each to bo freo to ex
change with others mutual surpluses
for mutual wants, tho greatest mass
possible would then bo produced of
theso things which contribute to human

Tho second of these utterances, so
far as it relates to commerce, seems
to bo tho matured and epitomized ex
pression of tho philosophy set forth In
tho first, with the qualification com
pletely and purposely eliminated. In
Jefferson's dny all the nations of Eu
rope were practicing "protection" nnd
carrying It to the extremo of self-Impoverishment.
Their statesmen almost
without excoptlon took It for granted
that It was necessary to the success of
their respective industries to fence
themselves around with high tariffs and
bar out each other's manufactured pro
ducts, while admitting their crude pro
ducts. Their treatment of commorco
was still based upon the assumption,
tacit or avowed, that what ono gained
by commerco another must necessarily
Jefferson waB far In advance of that
assumption when he said that It would
be better for all If every country could
bo employed in producing that which it
was best fitted to produce, each being
perfectly freo to exchange its surnhiR
for tho surplus of others to supply Its
wants. Ho was far In ndvanco of his
contemporaries oven when ho Intimat
ed that It might not bo safe for ono
country to allow lteolf this commorclal
liberty so long as others did not do tho
flame. "With his clear vision ho saw
that complote commercial liberty was
tho ideal condition. It is not surpris
ing thnt ho did not at once rid him
self so entirely of tho influences of his
Intellectual environment as to see that
what would bo good for all If all would
pursue tho samo policy would also bo
good for each acting for itself.
But when onco his mind had grasped
tho groat truth that universal commer
cial liberty would be conducive to tho
welfare of all men he was on tho high
road to tho groat, comprehensive con
clusion which ho condensed Into ono
lino: "J am for freo commerce with all
nations." Many a mnn who calls hlm

Chicago Chronicle: The quadrennial
strugglo and scramble for tickets of ad
mission to republican national conven
tions is In high progress at St. Louis.
Previous to each republican national
convention the. supporters of different
candidates attomp to pack the outsldo
scats and tho galleries with shouters
nnd howlers to raise an uproar as tho
ballot progresses for favorite names
and to lniluenco future ballots. Accord
ing to indications this abuse will bo
greater at St. Louis than ever be
fore. At present the loudest complaint Is
against the McKlnley faction, which
nppears to havo more to say than all
tho other factions together In regard
to the arrangomont of the St. Louis hall
where the convention will bo held. Tho
clamor raised by many factions Is heard
nbovo tho mild denials of thofactlon
that Is successful In the accomplish
ment of Its purposes.
As a matter of fact tho fight for tick
ets of admission to the hall whero a
republican national convention Is hold
Is of llttlo Importance except to tho In
dividuals who are preferred at tho tick
et distribution. Not a vote nor an ap
preciable body of votes is changed by
applause or marks of disapproval from
tho galleries. No delegation nor a mem
ber of a delegation changes on account
of tho outsido hiss or howl. Tho bar
gains are made before the decisive vbto
is taken. Tho secrecies of tho combine
rule nftcr It Is formed.
It Is, therefore, of little or no use to
take stock In the rumors regarding at
tempts to pack tho floors and galleries
at the St. Louis convention. Tho howl
Is now being used to hurt McKiuley.
Afterward It will bo used to hurt some
other candidate who uppears to be
ahead. The outcry Is merely that of
discredited ropubllcan factions seeking
to recover from a disadvantage by an
appeal to popular sympathy. Let the
factions alono to fight it out in regard
to gallery seats.

Why is tho congress of tho United
States in session?
It met early In December last. More
than four months havo gone by. Can
It point to a single useful accomplish
ment? It Is republican in both branch

lican, has mado Mr. Reed, a leader of
tho republican party, speaker. Repub
licans have organized the committees
of the senate. The party is in legis
lative power as a protest against hard
times, and hard times, of course, have
been charged up to the account of the
administration. Tho party successful
