She was such a little woman , and hu
was a very large man. lie first no
ticed her when the crowd began push
ing ( oward the reviewing stand , and
ho could not help thinking ( hat It must
be hard for her to keep on her feet.
Just then tu ! > parade was heard approaching
preaching , and again ( hero was great
pushing , In spite of the warnings of
the policeman. The large man found
himself behind her. When Ihe
disappointed crowd swayed from the
other direct Ion , she was Hiiddenly
crowded against him ,
"Look out there ! " ho exclaimed to
the man next to her. "Han't you set-
how yon are crowding this lady ! "
Then she felt an arm prot.'cllngly
11 round her. "KxciiM > me , madam , hut
I am not going ( o let them crush a llt
tlo mite like you. "
There was mioh a free heartiness
blended with anxiety In his tone that
nlui laughed In spile of her indignation
at the liberty he had taken.
"Thank you , " she said when the
crush was over and she had been re
leased. She looked up for the llrsl
tlmo Into the dark , handsome face un
der the wide brimmed hat , which spoke
BO plainly of the west. "A cowboy , "
Hho thought. "I suppose that he has
boon one of the rough riders. "
"No thanks needed In a crowd like
this. I think It Is a"-- Then he paused ,
r.nd Ills dark eyes scanned her qucs-
tlonlngly. She felt her face Hush.
"Iflxcitso me , have 1 over seen yon before -
fore ? " ho asked. "Oh , 1 know you I
Yen are Annul Hcg pardon. 1 mean
Miss Hoynolds Mrs. llalns' cousin. "
"Mrs. Halns ? Oh , Mrs. Halns out In
Washington. Then you must bo Phil
I moan Mr. Kdmunds , " she said In sur
"Yes , ICdmnnds is my name , but I
nm Phil. " And there was a twinkle In
the dark eyes. "I am glad that 1 found
you today. 1 have your address and
wanted to call on you. 1 promised Mrs.
Ualns that 1 would I wanted to any
way but after I got here I" llo
hesitated an instant. "Well , I Just
dreaded It. I am not used to ladles and
never could get along very well with
them. " He laughed bashfully.
"So you wore afraid to call. I don't
think that 1 should have frightened
yon , do you ? " She smiled.
"No , not at all , but I didn't know. 1
had an Idea that you wore very Inde
pendent and wouldn't want to see a
rough follow like me , and I didn't know
how you would treat mo. "
"Airs. Hiilns wrote mo that you were
cast on business nnd would call to see
me and toll mo alt about them , " .Mic
ald pleasantly. "Hut It was strange
that wo should meet In this crowd and
you should recognize me. I WHS going
with some friends , but In some way
we mls.soil one another. "
"You are alone then ? Coed ! I may
take care of you today , may I not ? " ho
nuked eageily.
She looked rather surprised.
"You sue , wo are not strangers , " ho
nald apologetically. "I have heard of
Cousin Anna for years , and I have
looked at your picture dozens of times.
Bay , I like that last ono of you with
that Huffy thing around your neck 1
don't know what yon cull It. I wanted
that picture the worM kind , but Mrs.
Italns wouldn't ghc it to me , and
when 1 took It she made me bring It
back. "
She laughed. Somehow she could not
feel prmoUod with him. as she would
have done with any ono else. There
wan a ring of sincerity In his tone that
mad her feel Instinctively that she
could trust him. She was rather pre
pared for his abrupt way. for Mrs.
Bain's had written :
"Yon will find that Phil Is like n boy
nnd blurts out what he thinks , lie is
not lit all used to ladles' society , but he
has a high opinion of women. My hus
band says he Is true gold. He Is quite
wealthy , and no one stands higher In
this locality than he docs. "
"You may take care of me today. It
will bo a new experience. I nm not
used to being taken care of , " she sali !
after a pause.
"That Is a shame. Do you know you
look like Mrs. Halns , and she Is the
only woman that 1 could over get along
with. She Is Just like a sister to mo.
You see. our ranches join , and I have
known ( ho Halnses for yea IN. "
"I am glad that you know them. I
have not seen thoTu for so long. "
"They want me to persuade you to
come along home with me. You will ,
won't yon ? "
"I couldn't think of taking such a
long vacation. You know that I am n
bn.sliu'Ns woman. "
"Couldn't you have some business
out there ? " ho asked anxiously.
"I mi ht herd cattle , " she laughed.
"What do you think of New York ? "
"There wouldn't bo much pasture , "
he said , glancing around at the push
Ing , hwaylng crowd. " 1 have not been
here for years-not since the year I
graduated from college and thought
that I knew everything , " ho laugh
ed. "It seems as If I am nearly smoth
ered with all these high buildings and
crowds of people. I will be glad when
I get back on my ranch again , where
I have room to breathe. "
In souio way she felt unusually free.
There was something about him that
tnado her feel that she was really being
taken care of. It was a now sensation
to have some one help her over streets ,
on cars and pilot her through crowds.
They laughed and chatted like a couple
of children suddenly let loose from
chool. They even stopped at a corner

It wa.s nearly dark , and those around
were taking wire of their own affairs.
Ho loaned close to her. "I know that
It Is a grout deal to ask you to give up
everything here and go on a ranch , hut
I will try to take good care of you nml

ho said pleadingly.
She did not answer. Ho waited n

Still she was silent. She wns living
the years to come the days with her
books and papers , the lonely hours she
must spend and the longing that she
would feel to have some one to care for
UT In spite of all her talk of womanly
ndependence. And then she seemed
ro feel that protecting arm that had
slipped so unceremoniously
iround her In the crowd and the strong
liand that had guided her. She asked
lierself If It had boon only for a day
that she had been so taken care of ,
and she knew that she would miss It
on the morrow unless She looked
up at the man who had come so sud
denly Into her life and In whom Rho
felt perfect trust , who would make
her life so different If she would only
allow him to do so , and then she
slipped her hand In his.

It is dltikult to lay down a regimen
for Indiscriminate adoption. A diet
that would prove one person's making
would very likely unmake another.
This much Is certain , a woman does
not require as much food as a man.
nor does a clerk In a store require the
same amount and quality of food as
a day laborer. A business woman
may not oat so much as a man , but
her needs arc as great In point of
quality and regularity of food.
Ilruhi workers should eat tlsh , eggs ,
cream , fruits and whole wheat bread.
They should oat enough of such food ,
bo they men or women , but they
should never overeat of anything.
Au intelligent Idea of our physical
make up and of the nutritive value of
different foods would preclude much
recourse to doctors for advlco when
wo are overtaken with Indigestion or
biliousness. American Queeu.

Old Pollock , Hcxt'iu ' of ! U. .liiniP.V
church , and his wife were chlldliMS.
drs. Pollock pined because she had not
n girl to keep her company and Pol-
ook shared In her wish.
Pollock had a habit of sloppier to his
door every night before going to bode
o take a look at Ids church , not that
10 expected to see anything unusual
t was a mere matter of habit. Ills
wife told him that It was a habit and
begged him ( o break It up. He gath
ered his resolution for an effort to do so.
This effort took place one night In
November. At 10 o'clock Pollock put
out the lights In the house and went to
jcd. This was only the beginning of
t. No sleep came to him , and ho
: ossed about struggling wllh a desire
.o get up , go to ( ho door and look at
the church , after which ho knew he
would go hack to bed and to sleep.
It was near U o'clock In ( he morning
before ho gave way ; then , rising , he
wont to the door , opened It , looked at
the church and was about to turn
when he saw or thought ho saw a
Hash of light at one of the windows.
Putting on Ids clothes and taking Ida
lantern and the key to a door opening
Into the vestry , ho hurried over to the
jloomy pile , now dark within , though
[ Ightod dimly without by a waning
moon. Opening the door , lie entered
and , passing through an arch , stood on
the chancel stops with his lantern bo-
lilud him , that it might not interfere
with his vision , and peered at the
pews , aisles , naves Indeed , at tlioso
things with peculiar names that go to
make up the Interior of a church.
Seen at that hour , by the faintest
Dimmer of moonlight shining through
.he windows , nothing could have been
more uninviting. Hven a sexton may
: mvo fooling , and old Pollock , although
tie had soon the sight many times be
fore , remarked to himself that he would
rather bo opening a grave by daylight
than standing there gazing over a sea
of emptiness. Hut , not seeing anything
unusual , he was about to take his de
parture when ho heard a fumbling at
the great front door lock. Not wishing
to bo seen , ho blow out his light and
got into one of the choir pews , where
lie could watch any one entering the
Sure enough , the big door opened and
some one came In. "Then came the
scratch and Hash of a match and the
lighting of a candle. Hy Its faint ( lame
Pollock saw a man enter the church ,
leading a shrinking girl up the center
nlslo , who shuddered at every step. The
pair came nearly to the chancel , whore
the man waited , listening for a sound ,
while the girl sat In a front pew , her
face burled In her hands. They were
evidently expecting to meet some one.
Then the clock In the tower struck 2.
A moment later Pollock saw a light
moving In the guild rooms , and present
ly a man dressed in the vestments of a
clergyman came In , holding In his hand
n small lamp. The man before the
chancel mot him at the rail and whis
pered something to him. Then ho turn
ed to the girl.
"Grace , dear , " ho said , "this Is the
Her. Mr. Hartshorne , rector of this
church , lie will marry us. "
From this moment Pollock saw
through what was on foot as well as if
he were intimately aequaintod'wlth the
parties , lie had served as sexton with
Dr. Ilarlshorne for twenty years and
know full well that the man before him
was not Dr. Ilarlshorne. A young girl
was about to lie ruined by a mod : mar
Hut what was ho to do ? Ho Avas an
old man Incapable of overcoming these
two rascals and did not think that to
appear and accuse them would ho of
any avail. At any rate he did not dare
try It for fear of bodily Injury. Tin
girl was almost dragged to the altar.
There was light enough for Pollock to
see that the man was well dressed
while the jrlrl was In the garb of the
poorer classes. The mock clergyman
began the service and had reached the
words , "Grace , will you have this
man" when Pollock gave a groan that
echoed through the church with all the
despair of one suffering from melan
cholia lnsantj\ | _
The groom and the mock clergyman
looked ut each other with startled faces.
The bride had to bo supported.
"Go on , " said the groom under his
teeth with an oath , and , after consider
able urging , the service proceeded.
"Do you , Grace , have this man"
There was another groan , this time
down In the body of the church , for
Pollock had slipped around by a side
passage and got In among the pews.
The pretended clergyman dropped his
"You'll burn for this ! " came n voice
from a still different direction.
By this time the groom had lost his
nerve as well as the elorgyman and ,
picking up the bride , who had fainted
hurried down the aisle with her.
"Drop her ! " roared a sepulchral voice
The girl was dropped in the aisle and
the men frantically made for the door
Pollock , fearing they might gather cour
age to return , picked up the girl am !
carried her out of the vestry door and
to his house.
Lena Hruco remained with the oh1
couple till they died , they believing that
Providence had caused the sexton to
take his resolution on that very night
nnd break it after midnight for the
purpose of savins the girl and giving
thorn a daughter. Lena , who was a
good Christian , only yielded to the vil
lain's solicitation , to n clandestine mar
riage on his promise to take her to a
church. No church was available ex
cept at an hour when all the world was
asleep. Hut how they got the keys old
Pollock never knew. lie did not again
think of going to bed without his last
look at his charge and often got up la

picked up the poker , heated It red hot
and began to sketch In a bold design.
The result pleased him so much that
ho elaborated his work and began to at
tempt other lire pictures on panels of
wood. These mot with a ready sale ,
and Crunch soon gave all his time to
his new art. This was the beginning of
what Is now known as pyrograpliy.
The poker artist of today uses many
different shaped tools and has a special
furna.ce In which they are kept heated.
The art has boon elaborated greatly.

arc often worked Into the design and

One part horse sense and two parts

Mix well with an unlimited amount of
the host quality of thought. It is Impos
sible for a woman to talk all the time
without saying a lot of things that she
shouldn't or without proving n jolly
bore to everybody about her. This tat
tling habit Is not confined entirely to
women , though. Some men have the

times It's baseball. A steady diet of
one kind conversation Is always tire

nibble of that , and your chatter will be
more Interesting , particularly if there
