No one uttered a sound after that
first wild cry. We sat there stunned
into silence by the horror of the sit
uation, every eye staring blindly in
to the m'st. the lru beat icslnc: like
a chip on the swell caused by the en

Even this s'.i-ht effort at action save

She rested her hand upon my knee.
"You need not fear for me." she taid
firmly. "I will not fail you."
The mainsaii bellied out. catching
whatever breeze there was. the boom
swinging free and the longboat lean

to the fog. The swift motion brought
new heart to all of us.
"Pass back the provisions, lads, and

Tlds tai-k required only a few mo

was able to discern the mate, seated

I caught my breath, fesling a shiver

"I am unable to make out who are

"Jem Cole, sir." It was the voice of
the negro.
"Next. Speak up, men!"
There was a pause, the last voice
sounding just abaft the mast-butt.
"Is that all?"
"That's all. sir."
"With De Nova, myself, and the
two women it makes the count ten.

"I am unable to tell you. Cole." I
answered, endeavoring to make my
voice sound hopeful, "because I have

days. There is no use Ivinz to vou

stretch between us and any land worth

The breeze perceptibly freshened,
but not sufficiently to require any reef

ing away like a great white cloud,
leaving revealed the vista of cold gray

did look barren and desolate, that

of our supply of provisions, and served
out a small ration all around, after

sea coming up a bit, and Dade and
Kelly fixed up a piece of spare can

Nova took the tiller, and seeing no
signs of a bad night I lay down amid-

There was no great change in con

storm-lashed seas, the seeming hope

choked in my throat, my lips pressed
tight, my eyes staring blindly out in
to the smother.
Suddenly the blanket at my feet
stirred, and Lady Darlington sat up,
her back against the gunwale and face
upturned to mine. The cold gleam
of the moon revealed her features,
clear cut as a cameo, framed by the
darkness of her hood. I could dis
tinguish the delicate tracery of her
lashes, and, beneath that light, the j
gray oi ner eyes appearea uiacK.
"I have been studying your face, Mr.
Stephens." she said quietly, "and have
read there the helplessness of our sit
uation." I rallied instantly, endeavoring to
speak lightly.
"You translate wrongly. That was
only the depression of the scene yon
der; the awful loneliness of sea and
sky affected my spirits. You should
not draw hasty conclusions."
"Nor have I. Even such a sea and
sky never gave you that look of de
spair. I kuow you too well to believe
that. You consider our situation des
perate." I looked at her closely, but it was
not fear I saw in the uplifted face.
"It is certainly serious enough," I
admitted, believing it useless to at
tempt any deceit, "but not hopeless.
We have a stanch boat under us, suf

and a favorable wind. While there is

She made a little eloquent gesture
of the hands.

"What chance have we of rescue?"
I turned my eyes away before ven

an untruth.

"Are there any vessels in this sea
at this season?"
"It Is hardly probable there are, un

His Long-Delayed Proposal
French Story of Note in Bouquet That
was tor rears unanswered.
One of the longest delayed proposals
en record is related in a French story
of a shy young subaltern who was or
dered away to the wars. Not daring
to si-eak. he sent a nosegay of yellow
roses to the girl he loved, with a little
note inside begging her. If she re
turned his love, to wear one of the
flowers in her breast that night at the
ball. She appeared without it and he
went away broken-hearted.
Years afterward, when he was a
lame old general, he again met his
old love, now a white-haired widow.
One day his old sweetheart gently
asked him why he had never married.

I hesitated, actually afraid myself
to speak the answer, but her hand

cance of the action. Impelled by an
impulse beyond all control, I drew her
hand within both my own as though
in pledge of protection.
"It can be done." I insisted. "Such
boat voyages have been accom
plished." She made no effort to draw away,
her eyes still upon mine.
"Not through such a sea as this;
not at this season of the year."
I could not answer, my lips dry, my
throat parched.
"You know the otter hopelessness
of it," she went on, stimulated by my
silence. "You know we can never
survive the cold, the closing In of the
ice, the certainty of storm. Tou are
a sailor, and a brave man trust me
with the whole truth."
"It would be almost a miracle," I fal
tered, the words fairly forced from
my lips by her Insistence. "This Is
the beginning of winter in the storm

do It but not man."
Her head sank, the white cheek
touching my sleeve, but the fearless
gray eyes were still open, gazing
straight into mine.
"Then it is the certainty of death,"
she said soberly.
Death together."
My heart leaped as iough it had
received an electric shock.
Together! 3'ou mean "
"That I should rather be here, facing
death with you. than anywhere else
alone." she exclaimed swiftly. "Oh.
I can say it frankly now; say It here

purity and honor. Perhaps tonight.
perhaps to-morrow, somewhere amid
this awful waste of waters we will go
together into eternity. What are the

"With all my heart and soul."
With everything else blotted out
with all else forgotten, I sat speech
less, gazing down through the mist of
tears into her eyes.

She rested motionless, her cheek
barely touching my sleeve, her eyes
filled with love, her hands in mine.
Then I heard her voice, soft as a whis

sternly, "you ought to know best If

She opened an old cabinet and took
out from a drawer a shriveled bouquet

whose leafless stalks lurked a scrap of
paper yellow with age. "See! I never ,

bouquet up. "If I had I would not have
answered it as you fancied." "Then

Memorial Day Order.
In accordance with the usual cus

of Nebraska, United Spanish war vet
erans, will observe memorial day,
Monday. May 30. No greater honor
can be done than to place a gar!and
or wreath upon the last resting place
of those who offered their lives in
defense of the country's flag. It Is
proper at this time to recollect the
value of the lessons of patriotism
taught by the soldier dead, and to
recall to mind the glorious results
of their services to the nation.
Therefore, as department com
mander, I request every comrade to
faithfully observe the day by placing
a flower upon the grave of all Span
ish war soldiers.

Permit to Issue Stock.
The state railway commission gave
the Paxton and Sutherland Tele
phone company authority to issue $2,
500 of stock for reconstruction and
extensions. Permission was also giv
en the Elk Valley Telephone com
pany of Emerson to issue $7,500 in
stock for the same purpose.
Want Candy Rate Reduced.
GHIen & Boney, an incorporated
candy manufacturing firm of Lincoln,
have entered a formal complaint
against all the railroads in the state
with the railway commission. Candy
Is now classified as first class freight
The first class rate Is unreasonably
high, assert the complainants. They
want the rate reduced to third class.
A State Fair Attraction.
Following a hitch in the negotia
tions with Glenn Curtiss for a series
of aeroplane flights at the next state
fair the board of agriculture took up
communication with the Wright
brothers and have received a letter
stating that the famous aeroplane In
ventors and drivers would put on
four flights every day during the fair.
The board regards itself as lucky in
securing these men, who are pioneers
in the art of flying and who have a
wider reputation than any of their
Fast Shorthand Work.
Fred H. Gurtler. who was In Lin

demonstration before students of the
Lincoln business college, showing
what may be accomplished In a brief
time in shorthand. Mr. Gurtler is a
member of the law reporting associa

Railroad Property of State Given At

; sessed the railroad property of the
state without a speech having been
I made by any railroad tax agent The
increase over the valuation last year
is $1,161,392. The increase Is con
fined to the Chicago. St Paul. Minne
apolis & Omaha and the Kearney,
I Central City and North Platte branch
es of the Union Pacific. This makes
the total full value of all railroad
property in the state $273,893,217. The
governor was absent being out of the
city. Those present were Brian,
Cowles. Junkin and Barton. After as
informal discussion the board cos
eluded to make the assessment at
once, and this was done. The vote was
unanimous. No other railroad valu
ation in the state was changed. A.
W. Scribner of the Union Pacific
reached the state house just a mo
ment after the work had been con
cluded, so did not get to deliver
his speech. The following table shows
the changes:

Kearney branch ...$32,877 $32,900
Central City branch 31.6G7 31,700
North Platte branch
St Paul. M. A 0 41.442
The action of the State Board of
Assessment marks the shortest time
on record that any Nebraska beard
ever completed the valuation of this
class of property. Heretofore It has
been the custom of the assessing
board to listen to addresses of rail
road tax agents and spend many
weeks in consideration of the ques
tion. So far as the present board
is concerned it arrived at the con
clusion that it could fix the valuation
of the property just as well on the
reports made as it could by listening
to the tax agents recite their pleas
for a reduction.
In the afternoon the board met
a?aln and added to the Burlington the
9.S miles of new road from Lincoln to
Denton. This was valued at $25,000 a
mile, which increases the total valu
ation that much.
Lighting Plant Not Profitable.
At the meeting of the Nebraska
State Electrical association. President
Scoutt or the County Electric Light
and Water company, asserted that
the city or Lincoln lost about $3,000
during the last year on Its lighting
plant and at that no estimated loss
is given for depreciation of property.

National Guard Rifle Contest.
Adjutant General Hartigan has Is
sued an order directing that the state
competitive rifle and revolver shoot
of the Nebraska national guard shall
be held at the state range at Ashland
commencing Monday, July 18.
The Postmasters' Meeting.
It is probable that the next conven
tion of Nebraska postmasters will be
held in Omaha. This was the senti
ment expressed by most of the mem
bers of the executive committee,
which met at the Lincoln hotel to
whlch met at the Lincoln hotel re
cently. The convention this year will
be held In Lincoln.
Sentenced to Prison.
Axel Johnson, who served five
years In the United States navy, and
who afterwards eluded federal offi
cers for two years after being arrest
ed for passing confederate money on
unsuspecting people, was sentenced
to three and a half years In the fed
eral prison at Fort Leavenworth by
Judge T. C. Mungcr.
Dr. Walker Gets License Back.
The state board or health met and
reinstated Dr. D. G. Walker or LInd
say as a practicing physician. Dr.
Walker was charged several years
ago with performing criminal oper
ations and his license was revoked by
the state board.
Permission to Increase Stock.
The railway commission has given
permission to the Farmers' Tele
phone company of Dodge county to
increase its capital stock from $20.
000 to $25,000 for the purpose of pay
ing lor extensions and new lines.
Better Railroad Depots.
The Northwestern railroad com
pany has infof;ed the railway com
mission that it will make improve
ments in its depot buildings at Pierce
and Plalnvicw. An Informal complaint
had been filed against the depot facili
ties at Pierce. The Rock Island rail
road has compiled with complaint ask
ing that telephones be installed at
the depot at Richfield, Papillion and
Springfield. The Missouri Pacific and
tre Union Pacific roads have not yet
been heard from in regard to the mat

The State Railway commission has
not decided whether it will give in
for publication the letters of the va
rious state commissions to which it
wrote concerning a rerommendation
to President Taft regarding the selec
'ion of a United States supreme

some members of the Commercial
