PY RICHARD D. WARE.
(Copyright, 1WL by Richard D. Ware.)
eix-flftesn aa a misty, moist morning
WM certainly beastly time tq taka a
train, but tba market had bocn wobblj
the la at few days, and the tbmut magnate
at tha villa on Frenchman's Bay had made
( It knows that It was tha duty of William
i Schuyler Morton, his private secretary, to
' set there Just a little quicker than pos
sible. There were still a few minutes before
starting-, and Morton stood on the platform
hear his Pullman, smoking a cigarette and
watohlng a newlyarrlved train of sleepy
i yed suburbanites, plodding towards their
i day's work in the city.
For a time It seemed as if he were to
I be the op.Iy occupant of the car In which
I lis had already deposited his bags and bag
I rmce, but two men with rod cases ap
peared after a while and slowed themselves
i away In the smoking room, while a portly
i elderly couple took their places In' the
front of the car. Morton had passed tip
toward the engine and wason the point bf
turning to go aboard the train, when a
succession of shrill canine yelps resounded
behind him. He turned quickly to see a
'lioavlly-ladcn colored porter luat complet
ing some Impromptu cakewalk steps down
; the platform with a sturdy brtndle terrier
tugging at his leash and nipping at the
man's heels. A second glance and Morton
was filled with the eonvlctlon that the per
son who held the other end of the leash
Was the prettiest girl he had ever seen In
Ms whole and somewhat observant life.
; Her face was alight with smiles, and her
j merriment over th! situation was so Joy
' oiii and pure of all malice that even the
well-startled porter wan soon showing his
white teeth In sympathy. .
With one outstretched hand she was
holding back the dog from his earnest
though ill-advised efforts to rescue the be
' longings of bt beloved mistress, while she
kept her skirts well above the grimy plat
form with the other.
The dog's strenuoslty gradually dimin
ished under the girl's discipline, and he
was at 'length content to walk beside her
on the shortened leash,' uttering low
growl from time' to time as he adjusted his
mind to the condition which confronted
him. He- remembered distinctly that on
ne ' occasion- : he hed : received caresses
without number and the larger part of a
lrloln steilr after "nailing" anothev colored
person who was walking out the front door
at home laden In a similar way.
Morton was standing by ths ear steps
with the laughter still In his eyes as ths
girl came tip. Their eyes met or . an
stant, a the best regulated eyes sometimes
will, and his heart moved several inches
upward as ha saw In the quick glance that
she permitted him to share her amusement
"Dogs aren't allowed In the car, miss,"
said the Pullman conductor. -
.Morton stopped short. Not let her dog
In the car! . He rather thought they would.
He knew the president of the road and his
uncle was one of the directors. He would
fix that. ...
A harmony of sweet sounds soothed his
Indignation., , He knew she would have sj
voice like that.
"I know that la the rule, but I think this
will perhaps make a difference," said the
girl. She handed a paper to the conductor,
and Morton caught a glimpse of the rail
road company's . official letterhead.
The conductor read the note and handed
It back to her. . .. .
"It's all right, miss," he said, with a
touch of added respect. .
. -,.".Cob), boyk..UR, upl'; ,,!,.', . , .. !.' ;
i-The terrier gave , a glance at tha steps
and then an Inquiring look at his mistress,
fine nodded her head and the dog was, on
tha platform in a leap. The girl followed
him and disappeared . in, the doorway of
. tha ear.
The great question In Morton's mind was
tha location of her seat.
Ha was almost afrald' to put his fortune
to tha test, but the wheels began to turn
and ha swung on to the rear platform of
Tha blue of a veil caught his eye tn an
Instant as be entered. Ha read tha number
Of tha seat he was passing, took a quick
glance at those between and looked again
at his own check. The answer to this sum
In lightning calculation proved thai her
seat waa Immediately opposite his own. Ha
seated himself with mingled feelings of
elation and almost of guilt.
Tha girl waa paying no attention to him,
because before he had taken his seat she
bad discovered among other things that
, ha waa tall and strong and clean, and that
ha had on a dark blue scarf with a gold
oar in rtv Also he waa considerably em
barrassed; which she rather enjoyed, and
that she was quite sure she knew, the rea
son why. She was Intent on her newspa
per, apparently oblivious of his existence,
when Morton finally settled hlmse'f In his
chair. .The dog curled up on the seat fa
cing the girl, with eyes shut and his nose
on hlapaws. He had opened one eye as he
beard approaching' footsteps, and watched
the newcomer Intently, His observations
were satisfactory, and he shut It agala
with a deep-drawn snore, and returned to
liia meditations. .
It waa soma time before Morton ven
tured to ook across tha aisle and discover
the contrast to but own tumultuous emo
tions which prevailed there. He, too, had
promptly burled himself in bis newspaper.
Then be began to feel that be waa making
himself ridiculous, hiding there ostrich
fashion. This argument waa conclusive. He
lowered the paper and emerged. '
- The girl across tha able bad' taken off
her hat and waa lying back. In bar chair
with her face turned part frotn bint,
watching the swiftly changing: scenes out
aide. Her hair, now free tram toll liner's
restraints, waved entranctngly all over her
dainty bead, from the while forehead it
shadowed to tha baek of tha graceful neck.
Iter profile In repuee seemed even more
beautiful than tha laughing face on tha
platform. He lues It waa Eh.
Possibly the intensity of bis thought, and
gase may have speeded some distributing
wave across tbe alaSe. tar the girl changed
her position, and hkJiitur forward, took Dp
a book from the (.'Uair on which the dog
waa lying asleep. Aa aha touched Mm. one
brown eye opened, and then, acting the
cause of the disturbance, winked sleepily
at her and closed again with another reso
nant snore of contentorenL
At the sound Morton, who had discreetly
turned away at the first movement of her
chair. Instinctively looked across the aisle
again and blessed the sleeper who let bis
eyes meet hers a second time,
i The girl swung ber chair so that It faced
In toward the side of the car a little more,
placed two vary pretty, b&f-bowed feet up
en the niopboard and shut her eyes. Bho
hadn't known she was so sleepy.
Morton soon discovered that she bad be
come practically Invisible and guessed, the
cause. He redoubled bla attention on his
bonk, but concentrate Ms nOnd as be would
upon Its pages, the more vivid memory
pictures of tha morning made then dim.
More prose was out of tbe question, and he
closed the book la Areajn et gray eyos. Five
mlnotes later a porter passing througn ths
car picked up a book which bfcd fallen In
tha aims and plaoed it gently In Morton's
lap wltlurrct fflsrarblng hlra In the least,
Tn the snotvntlirs momentous things had
ben linpr.ei.tng across the aii. The train
l.sd already carried the owner of the gray
evr inmi hundred of. till s beyond the
fcorders of dreamland, and as frequently
happens to one when traveling in that topsy-turvy
reslm, she had decided that her
avowed destination was the last place to
which she wished to go. It would be much
nicer to get off at Mattawamkeag and
change there for Rangelcy, where she had
had such a good time In June, when she
had gone up for the spring fly-fishing with
her father. There were a few things she
would need, but she could get them at
Mattawamkeag, on which euphonious vil
lage her mind dwelt lovingly.
A moment later the whistle sounded. The
train foUed Into a palatial edifice, duly
labelled with the name of her alighting
place In large, gilded letters. A porter
took her various belongings out onto the
platform while she followed, the dog tug
ging st his leash at the prospect of fresh
air and freedom. The very nice looking
young man who had been sitting directly
across the aisle leaped down from an rx
press wsgon standing near, seised her bag
gage and Instantly disappeared through a
door marked "Restaurant." She stooped
to unleash the dog and started on her er
rands. AS she came out on the street she
saw an Iron staircase, similar to those
which Ipsd to the stations on the elevated
railroad. The shops were unqestlonably up
She had Tint definitely msde up her mind
whit she needed on her fishing trip, but
she knew she wanted a new hat. She al
ways dUl. The very nice looking young
man opened the door of a shop for her
and disappeared sgaln as suddenly as be
fore. A tall young woman In a riding
habit approached from the rear of the
store, smiling pleasnntly. ' "I suppose you
wish to buy a hatT"
"You are quite right," said the girl. "I
always wish to buy a hot. but there are
times when I refrain from doing so."
"I am glad this Is not one of them," said
the head of the hat department. "The
price of the hat will be forty-three dollars.
It Is not yet created, but I think It will
be ready by 'the time we have finished
luncheon. The luncheon department Is this
The heal of the hat department showed
her custome." Into a large room,' decorated
In Oriental stylo, and led the way to a
daintily appointed tablo.
"This Is delightful." said the girl, draw
Ing off her gloves. "I had a very early
breakfast and I nm really quite hungry. I
hope you do not object to my dog being In
The young woman looked up in surprise.
"Tour dog?" she-asked, "I did not see that
you had a dog."
The girls face paled and a frightened
look came Into her eyes as she looked
vainly about the room.
"I have lost him!" she cried. "He was
with me when I came to the stalrcas and
I thought he followed right behind m. He
"Ah, now I understand," said the head
of the hat department. "That Is a patent
staircase. When you camo up, the steps
folded up behind you, and the dog must
have been left below. Now that you have
made your, purchases you . are entitled to
a return check, which you will give to the
man at the gate, - who will let down the
stairs for you."
''Give me my check then, please. Oh,
please hurry. It is almost train time and
I must find him. Poor old dear! He has
probably been waiting for me down there
all this time." ..
How she descended she never knew, such
was her anxiety of mind, but no faithful
companion was' awaiting her. The street
seemed absolutely clear of pedestrians, so
tfiat there was no one of whom she could
make Inquiries. 'She ran around the cor
ner of the 1 railroad station, whistling as
best she could In her breathless state, but
there was no answering bark. She rushed
across the track and gated down tha road
on the other side of the station. Two
great tears appeared in the gro,y .eyes and
colled alow'.y down to the corner- of
the quivering mouth, and Just then .the
whistle of the Air Line train for Rangeley
He must.. coma If she . called Mm once
more. He must! She mastered her sobbing ;
for the effort, and a pathetic, voice tailed
forth the lost one's name.
"Billy!" she cried. "Billy !"
.Mr. William Schuyler Morton's usually
clear and active mind had been In a some
what perturbed condition ever since the
porter had picked up his books from the
floor. The gray eyes were still before him.
but their expression seemed to have
changed. - A frightened look had come Into
them.. A crisis was evidently approaching,
for the expression became more and more
appealing, when suddenly there seemed to
ring In his ears the .name by which his
friends best knew him. With one leap he
was on his feet In the aisle, ready to
tackle whatever It was that had brought
fear to the two gray eyes.
The colored porter, ' who bad Just come
through , he rear door of the oar, was
somewhat surprised to see the two young
people), whom he had !eft sleeping peace
fully, suddenly Jump to their feet and stand
staring at each other In the middle of the
aisle. He happened to observe that here
were tears on the girl's cheeks, and that
the young man, who waa blinking rather
rapidly, was standing with his two strong
arms outstretched towards her, which
proved to be rather fortunate, for JuBt at
that moment the car gave an unexpected
swing and she might otherwise have fallen,
.They stood there for a moment, and
then the' girl dropped into her chair agaia
with a little laugh. The dog raised him
self up from the chair where he had been
sleeping, yawned, and hopped down to the
floor, where he stretched himself with
snorts of lasy satisfaction. '
' The girl looked up at the man still stand
ing in the aisle, and he saw that the gray
eyes were laughing again. His vow had not
been in vain.
"It was Billy," rho said. "I dreamed that
I had lost him."
William Schuyler Morton sat down In the
chair the dog had left.
"No, you have found him," said he.
e e ' '
Borne weeks later the private secretary
of the magnate on Frenchman'e Bay waa
walking along the shore path with his
host's youngest daughter. They stopped for
a moment to look out across the blue water
at a fleet of white-sailed yachts that waa
beating up Into the harbor. The mingled
sounds of scurrying feet and threatened
asphyxiation caused them to turn as a
brlndle terrier came bounding tip to them.
"Where have you been, airf said the girl.
"You must not run away like this. Ill lose
you sgaJn." The dog waived the question
and pursued a chattering ctilpmnnk through
a patch of ferns. Morton watched the dog
a moment and then turned to the girl be
side htm. He took one of ber hands In bla.
and as it was rather small, he decided that
he xuseded the otbsa to go, with It,

OMAHA, Aug. 13, 19-H.
Grain traders weie lavoieu with a great
two-sUiea market tnls morning, ine open
ing and tue mid-morning being ueclueuiy
suit on wriest, Wuii enougti sirengin be
tween times to enable hoiurrs of me cereal
te get a k'hxJ price anu tne longs liquidate
at a pront. Tne-re were the usual nurawt
of oope messages ana ihey ran ine gamut
of gixHl and baa news, with rather a pref
erence for the latter. It was a case oi the
ola story trotn some people and better
than expected elsewhere, 'ine middle east
got in on the wlree this morning wltn
pleiis for rain aa an ajMta.nt to a belter
corn crop, vs heat, however. In Its action
of the oay was influenced more by puro
speculation than by anything else that la,
as to future business, ihe wesk spells of
the last lew aays and tne peisistent at
tempts of the Dig commission houses to
make their long lines ot wheat get out
in order to induce more commlswlons wnen
they get In again have been effective In,
Inducing the bears to Increase thotr short
sales. . The fact that weather conditions
were generally Ideal thla morning was an
inducement to additional bear raids, when
some good buying was notlcod. and then
there cams a rush of evenlng-up trades
from traders that do not care to go home
over Sunday short on this crop. When
these orders were filled the market was al
lowed to sag again and declines carried It
down to near the low point again and In
duced more speculative selling. During the
last twenty minutes of the seeslon the
shorts made another attempt to cover
trades and turned what looked as It It
might be a break of a point or more into
a fairly steady clooe at c net lom on
September, ViC on December and practically
yesterday's linal figures for May.
The late newa of the day was attend!
with many rust and other dnmage stories,
reports of exhaustion of buying power l.i
various markets and unenslneH as to the
course of trade next week. There was
nothing In the close especially weak and
the day passed with better advantage to
holders of cereal than had been expected.
The feature of the trade In Omaha was
the high prices paid for No. 2 wheat and
also for No. S. Two cars of high grade
No. 2 wheat were offered on the market
and they brought 96c and Bfio, the former
being coupled In the sale with a car of
No. 3 wheat also at 16c and of high quality.
This urgent demand for the cash wheat
shows that millers are after the cerenl
and that they must have It even If they
pay high for It. WhM No. S wheat slls
in Omaha at 95c and No. 4 at 90c it la tlmo
that the elevator men were getting busy
In their shipping business. Omaha buyers
are waiting and competing, and they hav
ths orders for the grnln and only need
the right kind to get toppy prices for It.
Omaha also enjoyed an excellent com
trade and at good prices. Other points
may have exhausted buying power but this
maket Is a "corner" and not a "goer."
Corn was moderately active for futures
In the Chicago market and despite the bear
pressure and the talk of line weather thero
wasn't any concession In September de
livery worth speaking of, while December
closet tec better and May also o up. .
Oots were hold very strongly throughout
the session, but Just about Friday's prices.

by continued marketing of wheat which
wary traoers reared to carry over Sunday,
was the latest phase of a nervous market
today. The price ot September fell in
consequence rrom the highest point
of the day, closing Hldio under yester
day's final figures. Corn is down U4lc:
oats finished He off; provisions are un
changed to 10c higher.
September wheat touched 24c. The
strength was only fleeting, however. The
new values proved too tempting to the
holders of long lines, to whom the crop
damage news nas become less terrifying
and In the conflicting nature of which they
scented danger If their holdings wrce car
ried over Sunday. A complete reversal
of sentiment followed their realising move
ment and before the market stesdled again
September had lost all of lis previous
gain and was back at the lowest figure
ot tne opening range, i.oo. A partial re
covery occurred lm the last half hour.
when the bulls took hold sgaln, September
rallying to fl.ora'ft'1.00H at the close. The
tone at tne nnmn, however, was weak.
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to S77,2n0 bushels. Primary receipts were
892.700 bushels, gal rut t 61'l.fO bushels a
year ago. Minneapolis, Duluth and Chi
cago reported receipts ot -'.1 cars, against
iH3 last week and 19t a year ago.
Corn was Influenced largely by the ac
tion of wheat. September opened HSViO
to iio lower at toft 6." c.
The oats market followed the same gen
eral trend as wheat and corn. September
started a shade to c lower at SJSc to
SiHt'io and advanced to- Sic. Under
free offerings at the advance a weak tone
developed and prices declined, September
going back to 33fcc. The decline was
checked by covering of shorts and tha
Erlces steadied. September was at S3o.
ocal receipts were 353 cars.
Provisions were quiet and prices showed
llttlo change until near the close, when
scattered buying by pit - shorts and a
scarcity of oflerlngs combined to lift prices
somewhat. September pork gained 10c at
311.60. Lard closed 24c higher at 841.774.
ltlbs were unchanged at f i.45. Estimated

CATTLE There wero a few cars of cattle
reported 'this morning, but not enough ot
them were on sale to make a test of tho
situation. For the week receipts have beon
about the same as for last week, but as
compared with the same week of last year,
there Is a falling on amounting to about
8,000 head. The receipts at this point have
not been at all excessive, but at Chtengo
the first part of the week, and particularly
on Monday and Wednesday, there seemed
to be more cattle on sale than packers
could handle, and as a result prices suf
fered In bad shape at all points.
A liberal proportion of the receipts Inst
week consisted of corn fed steers and the
tlrst half of the week prices broke badly.
The latter part of the week, with very mod
erate offerings, there waa somo recovery,
but still the week closed with a decline
ranging from 26 to 60c In extremo cases,
the less desirable grades suffering the
worst. Good to clioloe cattle sold from
$5.25 to $6.60, fair to good from $4.75 to $5.2
and the less desirable grades from $4.60
The demand for western grass cattle held
up In good shape last week and packers
seemed to prefer thein to the corn-feds at
ruling prices. As compared with a week
ogo the market Is not over 10"u'15c lower.
Good to choice grades are quotable from
$1 to $4.50. fair to good from $3.50 to $4 and
common Kinds from $3.50 down.
The cow market has been very Irregular
all the week the siinie as has been the case
for some time past. Th tlrst half of the
week prices went down very rapidly, but
from Thursday ou there was considerable
Improvement and the better grades re
gained tho loss and some sales owing to
the very light receipts at the close of the
weeK looKia a little higher man tne on me
kliida sold for at the close) of last week.
The fair to good cattle, though, closed lO'if
15c lower, for the week and dinners and
cutters were dull and almost unsalable the
same as usual. Good to choice grass cows
are quotable from $3 to $3.50, with corn
feda from $3.50 to $4, if strictly choice. Fair
to good cows sell from $2.75 to $3, and
pretty fair cutters from $2.25 to $2.6.i, with
tanners and common cutters from $1.75 to
Bulls have been slow sale all the week,
bpt very few have arrived, so the market
Is not a (treat deul lower. Good arrass bulls
sell largely from $2.26 to $2.."i0, with bologna
Fraues Itoni down, veal calves sell
rotn $4 to $5 for something light and choice,
but most of them go from $4 to $4.50.
The demand for stockers and feeders this
week has been very limited and at the close
of the week speculators linve quite a few
on hand which they will probably have to
carry over until next week. Unless In tho
case of something very choice the nmrket
can be quoted lOgrljc lower. The better
grades of cattlo are selling frotn $3.40 to
$3.60, fair to good from $3 to $3.25 and com
mon Kinds from U down. Heuresentative
HOGS There was a very light run of
hogs hero t'.iis morning and as both packers
and shlpprrs wanted a few fresh supplies
the mark'.-t advanced about a dime. Not
far from 4wenty loads were carried over
from yesterday, which made the actual
number on sale a little over fifty loads.
The market was rather slow, as buyers
did npt. like the Idea of paying the advance,
but salesmen would not cut loose for less,
and a a result buyers had to pay the
prices Halted. Hiavy hogs sold largely
from $4.K6 to $4.90, with some common kinds
from $4.86 down. Mixed hogs sold largely
from $4.90 to $6.00, and choice lights or
butcher weights from $6.00 to $6.06. Butcher
weights, or those from 200 to 250 pounds, are
now selling run as well as those weighing
200 or a little Hiss. . ' ,
For the week receipts at this point have
been very libera). As compared with last
week there IS an increase amounting to
over 20.000 head. As compared with the
same week of last year the Increase
amounts to about 8,000 head. Receipts at
other points have also been heavy and as
a result the tendency of prices has been
downward. As compared with the close of
last week the murket is now about Id-OC
lower. Representative sales:
At noon today mere were still several
loads of heavy hogs In first hands, for
which there was very little demand, pack
ers and shippers apparently not wanting
them. Representative sales

sgaln oold for $3 .26. or steady with ths last
