The Shadow of a Girl.
Certain things about the dinner at
the Dallas house will always be ob
scure to me. Dallas was something
in the fish commission, and I remem
ber his reeling off fish eggs in billions

particular stunt he had been urging
the government to lor years some
thing about forbidding the establish
ment ol mills anil factories on river
hanks it seems they kill the fish,
either the smoke, or the noise, or
something they pour into the water.
Mrs. Dallas was there. I think Of
ooutse. I suppose she must have been:
and there was a woman in yellow; I
took hei in to dinner, and I remember
he loosened my clam, for me so I
could get them. Hut the only real per-1
son at i lie lame was a girl across in
white, a sublimated young woman
who was as brilliant as I was stupid. !
who never by any chance looked di
rectly at me, and who appeared and
disappeared across the candles and
orchids in a sort of halo of radiance.
When the dinner had progressed ,
from salmon to roast, and the conver
sation had done the same thing from
fish to scandal the yellow gown
turned to me.
"We have been awfully good,
haven't we, Mr. Blakeley?" t,he asked
"Although I am crazy to hear. I have
not said 'wreck' once. I'm sure you
must feel like the survivor of Water
loo, or something of the sort "
"if you want me to tell you about
the wreck." I said, glancing across the
table. "I'm sorry to be disappointing,
but 1 don't remember anything "
"You are fortunate to be able to
forget it." It wa the fiist word Miss
West had spoken directly to me. and
it went to my head.
"There are some things I have not
forgotten." I said, over the candles.
"1 recall coming to myself some time
after, and that a. girl, a beautiful
"Ah!" said the lady in yellow, lean
ing forward breathlessly. Miss West
was staring at me coldly, but. once,
started. I had to .tumble on
"That a girl was trying to rouse
me, and that she told me I had been
en fire twice already." A shudder
went around the table.
"Hut surely that isn't the end of the
story. ' Mrs. Dallas put in aggrievedly

"I'm afraid that's all." I said. "She i

recalls me at all. she probably thinks
of me as a weak-kneed individual who

"What did I tell you?" Mrs. Dallas
asserted triumphantly. "He fainted,
did you hear? when everything was
over! He hasn't begun to tell it."
I would have given a lot by that
time if I had not mentioned the girl.
But McKnight took it up there and
carried it on.
"Blakeley is a regular geyser," he
said. "He never spouts until he
reaches the boiling point. And by
that same token, although he hasn't
said much about the Lady of the
Wreck. I think he is crazy about her.
In fact. I am sure of it. He thinks he

what became of the murdered man,
McKnight had the sense to jump in
to the conversation and save my re
ply. "They say good Pittsburgers go to
Atlantic City when they die," he said.
"So we are reasonably certain the
gentleman did not go to the sea
shore." The meal was over at last, and once
in the drawing room it was clear we
hung heavy on the hostess" hands.
"It is so hard to get people for bridge
in September." she wailed. "There is
absolutely nobody in town. Six is a

The matter settled itself, however.
I was hopeless, save as a dummy:
Miss West said it was too hot for I
cards, and went out on a balcony that
overlooked the Mall. With obvious
relief Mrs. Dallas had the card table
brought, and- I vra.i face to face with

balcony railing in long black ban
against her white gown, and as it
swung sometimes the face was in the
light. I drew a chair close so that I

made no effort at speech, "that vou I

The light swung on her face: she ,

"He's a dear, isn't he?" Alison said
unexpectedly. "Xo matter how de

"He's more than that." I returned
..anuly. "He is the most honorable fel

n my comparative poverty to
1,e wealth of the girl beside me was
l single mental leap. From that
wealth to the grandfather who was
'sponsible for it was another.
"I wonder if you know that I had
'ooen to Pittsburg to see your grand
.ather when I met you?" I said.
"You!" She was surprised.
"Yes. And you remember the alli
gator bag that I told you was ex
changed for the one you cut off my
arm?" She nodded expectantly. "Well. ,
j in that valise were the forged Andy
Bronson notes, and Mr. Gilmore's dep-'
osition that they were forged."
She was on her feet in an instant,
"In that bag" she crlea. -Oh. why
didn't jou tell me that before? Oh,
it's so ridiculous, so so hopeless.
Why, I could"
She stopped suddenly and sat down
asain. "I do not know that I am sor
ry, after all," she said after a pause.
"Mr. IJronson was a friend of my fa
ther's. I I suppose it was a bad
thing for you, losing the papers?"
"Well, it was not a gcod thing." I
conceded. "While we are on the sub
ject of losing things, do you remem
ber do you know that I still have
your gold purse?"
She did not reply at once. The sha
dow of a column was over her face,
but I guessed that she was staring at

I I 2-hould hae sent it to you be

We both saw McKnight at the same
moment. He had pulled the curtains
aside and was standing looking out at
us. Th tableau of give and take was
itnmtetuKable: the gold puree, her out
stretched hand, my own attitude. It
was over in a second; then he came
out and lounged on the balcony rail

the way home: there was a constraint
between us for the first time that I

At the Farm House Again.
McKnight is always a sympathizer
with the early worm. It was late
when he appeared. Perhaps, like my
self, he had not slept well. Hut he
was apparently cheerful enough, and
he made a better breakfast than I did.
It was one o'clock before we got to
Baltimore. After a half hour's wait
we took a local for M , the sta-
lion near which the cinematograph

Taxes in the
the Reign of George the Third
One Could Not Even Escape
Them by Oying.
For taxes out of the common one
must turn back to the days of George
III. For in the reign of that monarch
one was almost forced to "die be
yond one's means." The army and
the navy were in urgent need of
money and the chancellor was at his
wits end. He thought of the dead
and cravely suggested a tax on cof-
fins. Which proposal recalls the day
when one could not be born without
involving a proud parent in a tax. A
graduated tax. The birth of an eldest

Russian Wheat Production.
An enormous crop of wheat has
been grown in Russia this year, plac
ing that land for the first time at the
head of wheat-growing countries. Its j
harvest of 7S3.000.000 bushels exceeds
that of the United States by 2C.000.000
bushels, and is greater than its own J
previous record by about 100.000.003
bushels. The development of wheat ,
growing has been most rapid along '
the line of the Trans-Siberian railway. '
As th home consumption is small in
proportion to population, this has
made Russia one of the great sources
of supply for the rest of Mie world.
France consumes much of the wheat
that it grows. The present price of
wheat in the United States, when
placed against th1 surplus product of
Russia, makes it more difficult for tbia
country to hold its place as an ex-
porter of that cereal.

For Perfect Attendance.
State Superintendent Bishop has
just issued a certificate of perfect at
tendance to Catherine Mohr of Bocne
county, school district Xo. 60. The
certificate is awarded to her for hav
".ng been neither absent nor tardy fo
five consecutive school years. Under
a system adopted a number of years
ago small certificates are issued by
:he teachers in the grades to tne
pupils who are neither absent ior
tardy during a school month. When
the pupil accumulates a gicn num
ber of these, the county superinten
Jent issues a larger certificate for per
fect attendance, and if the pupil ac
cumulates certificates to show that
he has been neither absent ncr tardy
for a period of five years the larger
certificate is issued directly from the
otlice of the s;ate superintendent.
Only a very limited number of these
nre issued each year.
Need Not File Petitions.
Candidates for the legislature who
desire to get positions on the ticket
by petition need not file petitions
villi the secretary of state. This is
ihe ruling made by Secretary of State
lunkin. He sas the law plainly pro
vides that where a candidate for
either branch of the legislature de
sires to go on a ballot by petition he
shall file his petition with the county
"lerk. If the district in which he de
sires to be a candidate comprises
more than one county, the candidate
shall file by petition with each co.mty
lerk in the district. Mr. Jiznkin fur
ther states that the law places no
limit on the time of the filing by peti
tion and that such candidates can file
any time before the county clerks
lave placed the printing of the ballot
m the hands of the printer. As long
as the county clerk will receive fil
ings by petition, such filings are legal.
Xo political party name can be used.
Judge Dean Withdraws.
The democratic committee of the
Sixth congressional district, having
received the declination of J. R. Dean
to run for congress on the democratic
ticket, has notified the secretary of
state that the committee held a meet
ing and nominated W. J. T-nylor of
Dnialia to fill the vacancy. The coni
nittee's nomination is certified to by
Chairman II. G. Moore and Secretary
H. J. Shinn. On the face of the re
turns. Judge Dean received the demo
:ratic nomination by a majority of
five votes over Taylor, but Taylor re
ceived, the populist nomination. Tay
lor asked for a recount and later the
compromise was effected wherebj
Judge Dean withdrew.
Organized Farmers' Congress.
Forty-one Xebraskans who were del
egates to the Farmers' Xational con
gross met at the Commercial club and
organized the Nebraska Fanners' con
gress. This congress will deal with
luestions affecting farming interests
within the state just as the national
organization handles these questions
in a national way. Stock breeders, hog
raisers, plain farmers, horticulturists?
ind others were represented. The
charter member list also shows a wide
scatcring of delegates, almost every
part of the state being represented.
Will Not Interfere.
For the murder of his sis;er-in-Iaw,
Bert M. Taylor of Mir.den is to be
hanged at the penitentiary on the af
ternoon of October 'Jt$. The supreme
court overruled Taylor's motion for a
rehearing. This finally disposes of the
case in court and ncthing except the
inter. "n:ion or the geverne r or a lieai
mg to dc .ermine insanity, granted by
:i judge of the district in which the
conviction took place, can save Taylor
from the gallows. It is said by attor
neys that neither rc'.ef will be grant
ed if asked for.
The state board cf purchase and
supplies has been notified of an in
crease in the price of coffee. The

The board has beta buying ln-cenl

'he officers of such institutions being
excepted from the i:? of such grade,
but now it has bfer. informed that at
least 1 cents a pound mor will be

Though Attorney General Thomp
son has been sworn in as solicitor of
the treasury department at Welling
ton, he has not yet severed his con
nection with the legal department of

some time in October and wind up
some cases in which the state is a

until after el ction.
