In the Idea of their marriage , l-'rleiuls ,
of course , as Is well known , have the
right to declilo those things.
Grace Ormlston was it Now Eng
land girl of an old Uoston family ,
who knew her Emerson by heart. It
Was even reported that she know
what Robert Browning meant when
ho wrote. :
Botobos and Sotobos and Sotobos.
Jim Garrison had been born nnd
roared on a big Kentucky plantation ,
and ho had obtained his education In
that ncliool which not only believes
but vows that a gentleman's education
Is complete when ho has been taught
"to ride , to shoot and to speak tha
Yet their marriage had turned out n
happy one , for with all Jim's Igno
rance of books he was a gentleman ,
every Inch of the stalwart length of
him. He did feel a bit oppressed ,
though , nt times when Ills clever and
learned wife let him "slide out of the
conversation , " as he expressed It. and
showed by her manner that slio knew
It was over Ills head and that she ex
cused htm In sympathetic kindness.
The truth was that Jim would have
been quite u bit the better for It If he
had possessed more of n share of that
of which most men have too much-
Poor Jim didn't have a bit , and he
used to rub his handsome head rue
fully nnd with very genuine sorrow at
the harassing thought that he was not
good enough for his brilliant beauty of
a wife and that she must feel sonic
degree of shame for him when she was
surrounded by the wise and learned
people who called on them contin
When they had been married a little
more than n year a telegram came for
Jim while he was absent In Kentucky
looking over sorno of his land. Mrs
Garrison hesitated before she opened
the yellow envelope , for she was not
a woman who believed in letting hei
curiosity get the better of her , al
though she had her full share of that
delightful Instinct of her breeding.
However , she finally decided that
she should open the telegram to see If
It was important enough to forward to
Jim. Surely every one will forgive
that. Women ought to be curious. It's
part of their charm. Think of what
the world would bo without woman's
The message was short. But few n
the words were they were sufficient to
cause something very much like her
little world tumbling disastrously
down around the pretty ears of Mrs.
Garrison. The telegram was dated
from n village on Long Island nnd
The cnrl Is dying. Como at once.
It was signed Jack Fnrrlngton.
Grace recognized this name as that of
ono of her husband's friends of whom
she had often heard him speak , but
whom she had never met.
Grace was not a naturally Jealous
woman that Is. nothing more than to
fBay that she was not any more jealous
than Is any good , true , warm souled
woman. She tried to remain unsuspi
cious : but , try as she would , she could
find but ono Interpretation for the
Her faith in Jim was too absolute to
believe that "the girl" referred to
could be her rival since their mar
riage. She never gave place in her
mind for one moment to any idea .that
her Jim was capable of the shameful ,
disgusting treachery such a surmise
But she could not help but sco that
this girl bad some old claim on Jim
and the thought of such a claim on the
man whom she loved so passionately
sufficient to drive her nearly fran-
r She perceived that the sender of the
telegram had taken it for granted that
Jim would not hesitate to "como at
once. " And then she recollected with a
jtcen sense that gave her new pain
now that Jim always had spoken shy
ly and hesitatingly about Farrlngton
and had evaded all her attempts to
Induce him to invite this friend of hh
early days to their home.
[ "Her feeling wn8 one of total desola
tion. She moaned at the thought there
could be anywhere in the world n
woman with such a claim upon her
Jim that he must go to her deathbed.
Mrs. Garrison realized now and all at
.once how deeply and helplessly she
loved her handsome husband and how
empty all her world of knowledge and
art would seen ! to her if that love
At last , however , she began to think
of the unknown girl who lay dying.
With a mighty effort she put aside her
owh grief and telegraphed to her hus
llr Jim Garrison. Phenlx Hotel. Lexing
Coma home Immediately. A matter ol
llfo and death. GRACE.
She could not bonr to telegraph ta
him that -'the girl" was dying. To re
fer to her In such a way was repug
nant to every Instinct , and she was In
total Ignorance of tne girl's namo.
Before noon she received the ex >
pected reply. It tead :
Leave at noon Arrive tomorrow noon
Gr"ace Garrison , having forced her
self to sacrifice her own emotions and
her own wounded lave and anguished
pride , was not the woman to shrink
from making the sacrifice complete
and deep , howevo her feet mlghl
bleed on the weary way.
She telegraphed to Farrlngton thai
Jim would reach homo , nt noon of the
i 'next day and would come down to
Long Island Immediately and mean
time determined to expedite' lib trip
In every manner. Whoorer this1 wiv
nn , was to Jim. Grace resolved that
Jim must reach her bedside before
death closed her eyes If she could
make It possible.
The railroad time tables showed her
that connections could not be made
until very late In the evening , and she
decided that he must bo hurried down
In her automobile.
It wan a xwlft machine that had
been bought especially for her use by
her mother , Jim had steadfastly re
fused to learn to drlvo It. But Grace
decided that It would not do to have
the chauffeur drive Jim on mich an
errand , for fear of gossip among the
RcrvnntB. She came to the bravo de
cision that Bho would drive tlu > ma
It was a very worried and excited
man who ran to her at the gate of the
railroad station. "Tell mo what It
means. Grace ! " cried he.
Grace Garrison had faced the sacri
fice , but she was a woman. Her face
grew stern and cold. She replied that
a crowded station was hardly the
place for such confidences and waited
silently till ho was in the automobile.
Then , when they were whizzing on
their way to Long Island , she looked
fixedly at Jim and without a word
handed to him the telegram from Far-
Jim read It silently. Ills face de
noted some distress , but It denoted
"I'm The Girl Is '
awfully horry dying.1
he said. "It sort of breaks me up.
Hut If she had to die 1 wish that I
had been loft in pcaco till I had fin
ished business in Kentucky , 1 was
just closing a very profitable little
Grace looked at him In shocked
amazement. Jim stared at her and
opened Ills mouth to say something ,
but thought better of It. Grace turned
her face away to hide her tears , which
she could not repress , try as she
would. She did not trust herself to
speak except once or twice to ask the
direction from Jim. The last time she
fancied that she heard him chuckle ,
but dismissed the Idea as a morbid
Farrlngton met them with a cordial
handshake and a strange cheerfulness ,
which was explained when he said
hurriedly to Jim that The Girl wai
much better. Then ho asked coldly if
they would not like to see her.
Jim replied in the affirmative with
out a moment's hesitation , but Grace
held back. Then Jim chuckled. It waa
an unmistakable out nnd out chuckle.
Bewildered , wondering , Grace fol
lowed the two men as Farrlngton led
the way to the stables.
A rather feeble looking mare whin
nied when she saw Jim and made a
weak effort to get upon her feet.
On the way back Jim said with a
happy smile : "You'll have to read up
on ono subject , anyway , darling. Any
body who knows anything at all about
racing knows The Girl. She's the win
ner of the Shenandoah sweepstakes ,
the Cumberland futurity and the Gold
cup , and she belongs to the racing
firm of yours truly , Garrison & Far
rlngton. I'm glad she Is better : but ,
sweetheart , even If she had died I
would have considered her well paid
for by the knowledge I've won through
your misunderstanding about that tel
egram. Am 1 very stupid , darling. If 1
think thai you love me , even though I
don't know much of literature and art ? "
And Grace Garrison gave him a re
ply that convinced him that he was
Preparing Robin Beefsteak.
On a certain occasion I saw a sturdy
specimen of the robin tribe on the
lawn searching for provisions for his
family of clamorous gormands. At
lengthby / tugging nnd perseverance ,
he succeeded In extracting a lusty
angleworm from the tough sward and
was making the effort to fly to bis
net with the prey. But Mr. Worm
rebelled. More than that , be writhed
and squirmed with the greatest en
ergy , and the bird that had come to
market so b'ravely was in danger of
finding his provisions so unruly that
he could not reach homo with them.
But he was not to be defeated so
easily. Stepping to the board walk
near by. he deliberately began to pound
Mr. Worm down upon the hard surface
with an emphasis that bade fair to
finish all protests nud writhing. And
so It did. A.dozen pecks , and not only
was the little fellow's beefsteak ready
for transportation , but it was ready
pounded for the brojler or ln this case

He Did It ,
A teacher had just finished explain
ing the use of the ditto marks when
she noticed one of her young search
ers for knowledge searching for It in a
story book. So she made him stay
after school and told him to write tha
sentence "Always pay attention" 100
In a very short time he gave a glad
Ihout , "I've did it ! "
"What kind of language is that ? "
she remarked severely. "And you sure
ly haven't had time to do it. "
"Well , I'm done It , then. Anyhow ,
here it Is. " He held up bis paper. The
sentence was written once at the top
ami the remaining surface was cov

"But you haven't done It ! " she ex
He gazed nt her scornfully.
"Course I have. Them's ditto marks.

What else was there to do but to let

That threats of n double suicide *
made by Mrs. Boyle last night were
not more idle words was shown today ,
when It became known that n razor ,
which had been secreted in his clothIng -
Ing , was taken from Boyle today nnd
that Mrs. Boyle had taken what she
says "enough morphine to kill two
The morphine was taken between
midnight and daylight but had little
effect on the woman. In the cell ul-
joining Mrs. Boyle there Is a woman
who Is said to bo nbdlcted to the use
of morphine nnd who has ben supplied
with It during her Imprisonment. Mrs.
Boyle is said to have secured several
tablets from this woman and to have
She was rendered partly uncon
scious during the night nnd wai very
sick this morning. It is bollevod the
effect of the morphine caused her to
collapse In the court room.
Fearing nn attempt to carry out
their threats , Sheriff Chess hnd Boyle
carefully searched before taking him
into court today. A razor was found
secreted in his necktie.
As a further precaution Sheriff
Chess today took from Mrs. t3oyle
three hat pins and removed all the
glasses she had in her cell.
Boyle told something today of the
murder in which he implicates the
alleged third party to the abduction.
It was committed , he says , In Youngstown -
town , Ohio , twelve nnd fourteen years
ago. He says a man by the name of
Welgel was with a party of others on
the third floor of n house ; that there
was some drinking nnd then n quarrel
during which Boyle alleges the third
man hurled or pushed Welgel from a
window to the paven.ent below. There
was an Investigation and a verdict of
accidental death "was returned.
W. S. Anderson , counsel for Boyle
in the kidnaping case , lived at the
time at Youngstown and is said to
have made an investigation. He said
accidental death was the only verdict
possible on the testimony presented
at that time. If Boyle has any I now
testimony , his counsel says he did not
disclose It to them. His counsel stat
ed that If Boyle has letters from the
third party which would show the
payment of hush money In connection
with the murder , It might have had
some effect In the kidnaping case , and
If they can be produced now they may
serve to get him a new trial.

tenced at Mercer today to twenty-five
years In the penitentiary and to pay
a fine of $25,000 and the costs of the
prosecution , may only serve fifteen

behavior would reduce her time to fif
teen years , and the fine will not have
to be served out.

The Tibetans have some strange
tests for ascertaining the character of

means of n hole In n block of granite ,
through which the individual has to
crawl. If ho is an honest man he will ,
according to the theory of the Tibet
ans , creep through , but If a scoundrel
he will stoo in the middle.

INTENSE INTEREST SHOWN.
Several of the Unfortunate bul Eager
Spectators Had Never Seen a City.
Result of the Contribution of Spe

Ono of the most iiiarvolmm experi
ences In the history of the Moloknt
leper settlement came to the pooplu of
that Hhut-ln Isolation a short time ngo
when a moving picture machine waa
Installed In Berutanla hall , their pub-

It was , not merely that they twn
moving pictures for the first time , but
for the first time , to n very great iiuin *
bcr of them , It was their first gllmpsa
Into the world beyond the narrow con-
flues of tin * settlement. Very many of
them had never seen a city until the/
saw those projected on the moving pic
ture screen. Elephants , camels , Inmrft ,
lions nnd the other animals of the cir
cus or the zoo were presented to them
for the first time. Fire engines , pollco
patrols , moving troops , the thousand
and one commonplaces of the ptcturo
maclilnc , came to them not only with
the force of novelty , but with the ef
fect of something unheard of nnd un
dreamed of before.
Some months ago at the suggestion
of Superintendent McVeigh of the set
tlement a movement was started to
procure a moving picture machine to
be sent to the settlement for the enter
tainment of the people there. A fund
was contributed , the machine and n
supply of 111 inn wore bought , nnd R. 1C
Bonltie. who has traveled the world
over scouring strange scenes 'for mov
ing picture exhibitions , volunteered to
go over and Install the machine.Thla
ho did , and the greatest Interest In
the matter was felt at the settlement.
Every operation of the process of In
stalling the apparatus was watched by
nearly the whole population , nnd when
finally the first exhibition wan given

In addition to the films that have
been provided by the donors for the
settlement , Mr. Bonlnc took a largo-
number of his own films to exhibit
there for the entertainment of the pee
ple. So Intensely Interested were they
that no amount of repetition of the pic
tures seemed to tire them. At their'
earnest invitation Mr. Bonlne decided'
to remain another week at the settle
ment to exhibit his own pictures often
enough so that every one In the settle
ment shall have opportunity to sco
them and more thoroughly to instruct
some of the lepers how to manipulate
the machine , so that there need be no
interruption In the regularity or fre
quency of the exhibitions after ho
It Is expected that funds for new
films will be donated from time to
time by the public In Honolulu , BO that
the people at the settlement will have
new moving pictures to look nl at In
tervals. ' Mr. Bonlno soys that In nil
his experience lie has never seen such ,
