A doctor relates the following story :
"I had a patient who was very ill and
; who ought to have gone to a warmer
climate , so I resolved to try what hyp-
notism would do for him. I had a
large sun painted on the ceiling of his
room and .suggestion induced him
to think it was the sun which would
cure him. The ruse succeeded and
he was getting better rapidly when
I , one day on my arrival I found he was
- dead. "
"Did it fail , after all , then ? " asked
i , one of the doctor's hearers.
"No , " replied the doctor , "he died
of sunstroke. "

At a recent dinner of the Author's
club in London to Mr. Owen Seaman ,
the editor of Punch , lIr.Valter :
Emanuel , another member of the staff
Of Punch , referred to the fact that the
man with the largest sense of humor
he ; had ever struck was an Englishman
-a dentist. He went to him , after suf -
fering long with the toothache. He re
fused to have gas , and the dentist
pulled out a tooth , leaving him writh-
ing in pain , and took the tooth to the
window , where he laughed quite heart.
ily. He groaned , "What's the joke ? "
"Wrong tooth , " said the dentist.

CHAPTER XIII. - ( Continued. )
He was a little fellow and he was an
gry ; but he was a gentleman , too , and ,
seeing that Rodney Merriam was real-
ly surprised , he relented toward tht
old soldier , who had thrust his hands
into the side pockets of his coat , look-
_ ng as foolish as It is possible for a .
r ne old gentleman to look.
"Captain Pollock , " he blurted out , ,
suddenly , "I haven't a doubt that you
fere telling the truth. I don't care whose
Jeon I you are , I like you anyhow ! " And
i : then snatching his hands from his
pockets he held them out to Pollock , ,
demanding with a gruff kindness , "Will
you : shake hands with me ? "
"Certainly , Mr. Merriam. "
A few hours later the usual crowd
lounged in the smoking-room of the
Tlppecanoe Club. Pollock had just fin-
ished telling a story when Rodney Mer
riam appeared In the doorway. The
old gentleman advanced upon the little
group , returning their greetings and
thanking them all for the proffer of
"Gentlemen , " he said , standing by
his chair , "I wish to make you an ex-
planation. Owing to an unfortunate
misunderstanding , due wholly to my
own stupidity , I recently showed Cap-
tain Pollock a slight In this club. I
wish to make the amplest possible ex-
"This is wholly unnecessary , " ex-
claimed Pollock , rising. "This Is whol-
ly uncalled for , Mr. Merriam. "
"I wish to say before all of you , "
MarrIam continued , "that I was wholly
in the wrong , and that Captain Pollock
is a gentleman , who is an honor to his
friends and to his profession. "
And the next day , In the same spirit
of scrupulous honor , Rodney Merriam
sought his nieces at The Beeches and
made his peace with them.
CHAPTER XIV. I
LeIghton always hated himself for I
laughing at Balcomb , whose loquacity
was so cheap it was pathetic. Every-
thing Balcomb knew he used constant-
ly. At the college to which he referred
In terms of raillery or contempt he had
picked the nearest and gaudiest flow
ers ; but he wore them all in an amaz-
ing bouquet that did not fail to Im-
press many of his acquaintances as
the real bloom of learning. Leighton
was not at all glad to see Balcomb one
night His friend's eternal freshness
palled upon him. But it did not occur
to Balcomb that Leighton mighf not
be delighted to have him for a travel-
Ing companion. He thought his con-
versation was shortening the distance
for Leighton. Balcomb had been mak-
ing 'social history fact.He had , In his
own phrase , "butted In" ; and since the
performance of "Deceivers Ever" he
had been Included in most of the gath-
erings of the Dramatic Club circle.
"I say , old man , " he began , abrupt-
ly , as the car skimmed through a strip
of woodland , "just between old college
friends , what's your game , anyhow ?
Which is it ? "
"Which Is what ? " demanded Leigh-
ton , who had been enjoying a moment
with his own thoughts , while Balcomb
stared out upon the darkling land-
"Which girl , I mean ? There are two
out here. "
Leighton took off his hat and laugh-
"I haven't decided yet , " he said , pres-
ently , with an irony that was quite lost
on Balcomb. "I'm a good fellow , though ,
and I'll take the one you leave. "
"Miss Dameron's certainly a peach
iumpllng , all right. But say , the lit - ,
tIe cousin's a gem of purest ray se- i
rene. She ain't so stand-offish , some
way , as her cousin ; she jollies easier. "
"I think I've noticed that" - - and the
Tony this time was meant for himself.
"They say olives are a cultivated
taste , " persisted Balcomb ; "but laws : > ' ,
I [ knew right away that girl was a good
thing. : And to think that she has to
teach : a' lot of grimy little muckers
how to cook. "
"It Is too bad , Isn't It ? But I don't
think : you need be sorry for her. "
"She's as proud as Lucifer. Here's
our stop. "
, The two men jumped out into the
highway and started for the Dameron
"I think a man ought to marry ear-
ly , " Balcomb announced , as they
tramped along the road. "There's
lothlng like a woman and a home to
put snap Into a man , " he continued , no-
, ly. "A man fools away a whole lot of
noney : In his bachelor days. Doing so-
: lal : stunts Is expensive. : Have you
.ny idea what my carriage bill was last
Jarch ? Eighty-four dollars ! I hon-
sstly believe it would pay me to own a
lack. But , I say , the man who will
Irag a girl to the theater In a street
car : : : Is fit for treason , strategems and
he ; stone pile. It ain't enough to put
em on four wheels when it's snowing ;
no , I make a specialty of hacks under
he : starry hosts of heaven , and eke the
tale and haughty moon. There's no
tetter way than that to get solid with
is girl. There are some that put their
aith : in bonbons and a new novel now
nd then ; but there isn't a girl in Mar-
ona to-night that wouldn't rather go
to ; see a good show in comfort than do I
.uything else under the sun. I say , I
bout haeks , don't give It away , but
've : just got a transfer company pass
-Wilson , the president , and I are pret-
y thick , and I do a little quiet work
'or the company occasionally. I help-
ed ! 'em beat the vehicle tax before the
Jouncil last winter , and I have an an-
ual now that gives me power of life
nd death over all the company's roll-
ng stock night and day. And you bet
won't use it or anything ! "
Leighton's silence did not disturb
lalcomb ; he talked for the joy it gave
1m. They reached the Dameron gate
nd followed the winding path toward
"Ahoy , 0 bower of beauty ! " Balcomb
ailed : cheerily when they were within
ailing distance of the veranda.
Friends draw near bringing tfdlngs. " ,

each other's necks in mock ecstasy ot
"They're there , all right , " announced
"If you yell at them again , they'll
undoubtedly bolt , " said Leighton , whose
thoughts since they had left the car
had been far away from Balcomb's
"If you're .not afraid of the June-
bugs , we'll stay here , " said Zelda , when
she and Olive had shaken hands with
"There's nothing better ; It's the cen-
ter of the universe right here , " ' Bal-
comb declared. "I brought some poi-
son for the June-bugs with me. I will
place it on yonder rail , lest we forget ,
lest we forget"
This was Balcomb's happy idea of
minimizing the value of his gift. He
was relieved to find that Pollock was
not there , and as it was past the usual
calling hour In the latitude and longI-
tude of Mariona , the army officer was
not likely to appear. Ever since the
unpleasant incident on the stairway at
the Athenaeum building , Balcomb hail
been in the undignified attitude of
dodging Captain Pollock , though he
had said , during Pollock's absence
from town , exceedingly cruel things
about the officer. :
Mr. Dameron came out and shook
hands with the young men , address
ing a few words to each. Balcomb had
called upon him repeatedly in reference
to the purchase of the tract of land
on the creek , but without encourage
ment. Dameron had just been wonder-
ing how he could communicate with the
promoter without seeking him directly ,
and this call gave him an opportunity.
"By the way , Mr. Balcomb , " said the
old man , pleasantly , "some time when
you are passing , I'd be glad If you'd ,
call : at my office. There's a matter " . f I
mutual Interest that I'd like to speak I
to you about. A beautiful night , gen-
tlemen. Very much cooler here than in
the city , as you may have noticed. "
And he went down the steps and out
upon the highway for his usual even-
ing walk. '
"A remarkable man , your father ,
Miss : Dameron. He's quite the Ideal
business man of the old school , " saiQ
Balcomb. "We youngsters are quicker
on the trigger , but our aim isn't jo
sure. No , siree ; your father is an ideal
business man. "
He had spoken impressively. He
would , In his own language , "make
himself solid" when he had a chance.
Leighton was talking to Olive , and
Balcomb set about entertaining , Zelda.
He ran on monotonously. He was anx-
ious to make an Impression at once
wIthout. relinquishing the floor.
"I suppose you and Miss Merriam
do a lot of reading out here. What
are the books to "
one ought talk about ?
"We don't read much-except the
cook-books , " replied Zelda.
"Ha ! ha ! That Is rich-from the
great Miss Dameron , too. I like that !
I suppose as a matter of fact you real-
ly spend your morning with the clas-
"I'm sorry to disappoint you , but. our
mornings are spent with cook-b aks.
My cousin is writing a cook-book and
we're reading all the old ones to be
sure hers is all new. It's delightfully
"Wouldn't that Jar one ? I say , I
want to speak right now for an auto-
graph copy of the first edition of that
book. " '
"Olive will be delighted , " said Zel-
da. "It's designed , you know , for the
very young. "
"There it goes again. Everybody has
it in for me ! Oh , well ! My time will
come ! "
It came In an unexpected way. Cap-
tain Pollock was riding up the drive-
way. He was on very good terms lit
The Beeches , and had been told that
while there were lights there was a
hope of finding some one at home.
"Here comes ' another messenger
bearing tidings , " said Balcomb , in his
most cheerful note. "I hope it isn't
bad news. "
"No ; It's Captain Pollock. That
horse of his is a beauty , Isn't It ? I
wish he would trade with me , " an-
Leighton groaned inwardly at the
sight of Pollock , whom he liked well
enough ordinarily. He did not under-
stand the reason for Balcomb's hur-
ried flight , so that the humor of the
situation did not strike him.
"You may have Mr. Balcomb's seat
there by the railing , if you like , " said
Zelda to Pollock.
"You do me too much honor , " said
the officer , as he shook hands with
"Oh , I don't know ! " and Olive's imi-
tation of Balcomb's Intonation was so
true to life that they all laughed. ,
"I don't see why any one should
laugh , " said Zelda.
"I'm sure I don't , " declared Pollock.
He put back his arm against the rail I
ing , knocking down the box of candy
that : Balcomb had left behind him.
"Ah , I beg everybody's pardon ! "
"Mr. Balcomb's feelings might be
hurt if he came back , " suggested Zel-
"He won't com back ; I'll wager an-
other box he won't , " replied the offl-
ever , blandly , as he fumbled with the
string. "Miss Dameron , permit me -
'm : sure they're delicious. Chocolates ,

MerrIam , you will not decline. Mr.
Leighton , a little candy now and then

pose Mr. Balcomb's health , to be eaten
sitting and in silence. "
'It Isn't polite to treat the gift of a

Olive"I'm surprised at you Captain

tblny that one could not mlas In the
moonlight , unless one were blind. But
Zelda paused when they reached Pol
lock's horse , which whinnied and put
out Its nose to her in a friendly way.
As they reached the road , which lay
white In the moonlight , Ezra Dameron
came toward them , walking slowly , hat
in hand , and the two watched him-
his queer shuffling walk , his head bent ,
has gray hair touched with the silver
of the moonlIght.
"Won't you come with us , father ? "
said Zelda , as they met in the road.
"No ! no , I thank you , Zee. I have
had my little constitutional. Don't go
too far-there may be malaria abroad. "
Leighton looked furtively at Zelda.
She had greeted her father kindly , hap-
pily : ; but there was something repel-
lant in Ezra Dameron. Leighton never
felt , it more than to-nIght. That such
a girl should have a father so wretched
seemed impossible ; but the thought
quickened his love for her. There was
something fine in her conduct toward
her father ; her unfailing gentleness
and patience with him had impressed
Leighton from the time of her home-
coming. She made a point of speaking
of him often and always with respect.
Leighton was-well aware that no one
else , . with the single exception of Mi
chael Carr , ever spoke of Ezra Damer
on in anything but derision. Rodney
Merriam never mentioned him at all ,
which was doubtless the safer way. .
Farther along the road Pollock and Ol-
ive were tentatively singing a popular
song of the hour. ,
"Sing It all-don't pick at it that
way , " called Zelda.
"Sing it yourself , if you don't Ilka
it , " came back the answer from Olive.
"There Is only one song that I should
care to hear to-night , " said Leighton ,
after a moment of silence. "It's the
only song that ever meant a great deal
.to me. "
"Oh , I know ! One of Herr Schmidt's
from his great operatic triumph-'of ' last
winter. Your taste is only fair , then. "
"It goes back a little farther than
that. It's Traume-Tristan and Isolde ,
wasn't it ? Do you remember ? "
"I have heard it sung , beautifully , In
Berlin , " she said , evasively.
"I never did. But I heard you sIng
it once , and it has haunted me. "
"Is that the one ? " she asked. "Yea ;
it is about dreams. "
"That is the one I meant. It is the
most wonderful thing in the world !
Yes , it's only about dreams-a dream ;
but it's the sweetest dream In'the
world , it means- "
"A dream ! " and she laughed , but It
was a mirthless little laugh.
He paused and looked out over tha
moonlit cornfield ; his heart was beat-
ing fast. She felt for a moment that
she must turn and fly from him ; but
he started forward again and she fol-
"It is more than a dream. , I am
building upon it as though it were a
veritable rock. "
" build the real ?
"A dream-to upon
The architects of fate don't like that
plan , do they ? "
"But we must hold to our dreams , "
he said , soberly.
"I suppose we must , even though
they are things of air that only lead us
astray. I didn't think you were senti-
mental. I'm afraid I can't sympathize
exactly , for sentiment was left out of
me utterly ; " and she hated herself for
the bravado with which she spoke.
"I can't believe that ! Every on9
has it. I'm a thoroughly practical per-
son , and yet I have my dreams-my
dream ! "
Olive and Pollock were singing
again. They were far In advance and
their voices stole softly upon the night
Zelda stopped to listen. Her heart was
In ! a tumult of happiness and wonder.
The splendor of the moonlight upon
the fields about them , the gloomy shad-
ow of the woodland beyond , the man
beside her hesitating , yet ready to tell
her of his love. There stole across her
spirit the tremulous awe of a girl to
whom love has come for the first timo
as it can never come again. Leighton
drew close to her. .
"Zelda , " he said , "Zelda ! "
"No. Oh , no ! You must not ! " she
"I love you , Zelda ! " he sale !
. "No ; you must not say it ! " And
there was a sob that caught her throat.
"You are the dream. It is too sweeti ,
I' can not lose It-I must not"
"You have talked of dreams and :
love , " she said , hurriedly , but with a
lingering note of contempt on the last
word that stung hlfh as though she
had struck him in the face. I wonder
what love is ! " and hastened away to-
ward her cousin and Pollock who
waited , idly and trying their voices
and chaffing each other over their fail
ure to carry a tune.

Characteristic National Meal. :
It is not only in Scotland that
breakfast is the characteristic nation-
al meal. Travel where you may , the
first meal of the day is the one that
strikes the foreign note , luncheon and
dinner having gradually absorbed cos-
mopolitan qualities that are not even
confined to hotels. But you - \ never feel
BO much of an Englishman , says a :
London paper , as when Switzerland I
gives you rolls and butter and honey , I
and nothing more , with your coffee ; J
or when France makes this into one 1
exquisite crumbling "croissant , " with 1
an inch or two from a yard-long loaf ,
or when Denmark adds cream instead
of milk to the coffee and a dangerous
piece of pastry to the black bread and
round white roll. Yet the Englishc
breakfast became an Institution only
In the eighteenth century. Before
that only royalty breakfasted off meat ,
bread and cheese and ale. The com
moner , such as Pepys , took merely a 1
morning draught of buttered ale.

fO MAKE DELICIOUS ICE
Orange Granite Is a New One - MOP
Cooling Than Creams in
Six oranges , a pint of orange Juice
a pound of sugar and a quart of wa
ter-these are the materials needed to
make a delicious ice. Ices are more
cooling than creams in the summer ,
because the water and sugar and fruit
juices digest far more easily and
quickly than cream and milk. To make
the granite , boil the water and sugar
together for five minutes. Peel tha
oranges , separate the sections , remove
seeds : : : , white skin , and every bit of
connecting tissue. Throw the pieces
of fruit into the hot syrup , stand aside
for an hour to cool , and then drain
the syrup into the ice cream freezer ,
add the orange juice and freeze.
When frozen stiff mix in the piece
' ) f orange , and serve in glasses.
Put into a saucepan two cupfuia
nrated maple sugar or maple syrup
and one-half cupful milk. Cook gently
until a little dropped in cold water

It [ will take ten minutes or a little
less to reach this stage. Stir constant-
ly while boiling , as it scorches easily.
Add a heaping teaspoonful of butter ,
and as soon as melted remove from
the fire and beat steadily until the
mixture looks creamy and slightly
granulated. Stir in at once a pound
of English walnuts , broken ( not
chopped ) into small pieces. Beat
hard and turn into buttered tins to
You can ' use brown sugar if you
have no genuine maple , but add a tea-
spoonful of the maple flavor that can
be purchased at any of the large gro-
For Salty Soup.
If your soup is found too salty , add
a few slices of raw potatoes and cook
i little longer. The potato will absorb
the surplus salt.
It will save time if a frying pan or
griddle is wiped with a piece of old
newspaper to remove the surplus
grease before it is washed.
Some people like the unsweetened
juice [ of a pineapple added to mayon
naise , especially when the mayon-
naise is used on a fruit salad.
Boil dried beef a few minutes In
water to remove the salt and to make
It [ tender. Put the beef into hot but.
ter : , fry brown , make gravy with flour
md ! milk , boil for a minute and serve
; with small pieces of toast.
Two quarts onions , two quarts cu
cumbers , two quarts cauliflower or
cabbage , two or three green peppers
( take seeds out ) . Chop all fine , or put
through ; food chopper , and let stand in
brine over night. Drain and scald in
weak vinegar , with a lump of alum in
it. [ When cold pour off vinegar and
add dressing : Ten cents' worth of
mustard , one-half ounce celery seed ,
ne > cupful of flour , one gallon of vine-
gar , two cupfuls of sugar. Add all
the ingredients. Bring to a boil and
seal ; tight. This is fine with meat.
The grape fruit for breakfast should
be cut in half the night before , the
seeds all carefully removed , and sugar
sprinkled over the fruit , which should
then ; be placed in the refrigerator
ver night. The result is a delicious !
