Maynard 's Magnetism and
to Forgive Him in
By Virgin! Terhune Van D Water.
At the . maid's anhuoncement of her un
expected guest, Beatrice set down 1 her
cup and flashed a startled glance at
Helen. Mrs. Koblnson waa a trifle dis
concerted and flushed, but Beatrice
thought that an expression of triumphant
eelf-rlghteousnesa flickered around her
lips' as she raised, her. brows in answer
to the appeal in the widow's eyes.
Even Helen, with her prejudices, was
forced to admit to her that Beatrice's
manner was that of the perfect hostess
as she rose to greet her guest '
"A very pleasant surprise," she ex
claimed cordially when Maynard entered
the drawing room. "Helen and I were
just talking of you when you were an
"Yes?" queried the man, jestingly, as
he turned to greet his fellow-guest
"Speak -of the devil and you'ra sure to
see him, eh? While I, out In the ball.
was thinking of angels and heard their
"Tou will have some team, of course?"
suggested Beatrice, touching ' the tiny
Chinese gong on the little- table at her
side. - ' ' - M --
"None if you please,"'the man an
swered. "My lunfch was late today, and,
what little appetite this first hot weather
left me was taken away by that-repast"
The maid entered -and at a word from
her mistress removed the teatray. and
table, while the trio, settling themselves
In chairs chattted lightly of impersonal
things until the sinking sun warned
Helen that it was time for her to leave.
Yet, Incredible as It may seem to one-who
is not an impressionable women, In that
quarter' of an hour Robert Maynard's
manner had done much to cool Beatrice's
indignation against him.
He possessed to a great degree that
wholly. Indefinite- something which we
call magnetism. Weeks ago Beatrice had
heard Helen' say ithSt'.one could.be" angry
at Bobert Maynard, but never angry with
him. She remembered that now, as she
found herself laughing spontaneously at
his- clever, nonsense which was combined
with a natural gayety that was almost
childlike. He rose to his feet as Helen
got up to leave, and announced In spite
of ner protests,- his Intention of accom
panying her as far as her car. But before
he left he murmured to Beatrice, Tin
coming back may I?" . And she, smiled
her assent 'X' '. .
She waited until , the rumble of . the
elevator signalled their descent and then
hurried into her room where she quickly
exchanged her easy and rather . homely
house slippers for a dainty pair of satin
pumps, and - slipped upon her wrist a
bangle which Robert had admired the
day of their drive together. If the recol
lection of this incident brought the dis
agreeable ending of the excursion more
clearly to her mind, she-quickly consigned
the unsavory memory to obscurity.
He was merely a friend, - she insisted
to herself, scarcely more than a pleasant
acquaintance, , despite Helen's match
making Ideas, and If lie was calling on
her in that capacity, it was her duty as
a hostess to make his visit as pleasant
and agreeable as- she rould. If, when
she looked, into the glass, she saw that
her cheeks were more flushed and. her
eyes brighter that! the advent of a chance
caller would ' justify, she felt only a
thrill of satisfaction at her appearance
and did not attempt to analyse her ex
' cltement . .
Maynard returned sooner that she had
expected and she had scarcely time to
seat-herself and open a book as If she
had been reading ever since his departure
before the' portieres parted and he again
entered the room.
'l was . a long time getting back, I
know," he said ruefully. "But It really
wasn't jrny ; fault Those infernal street
cars never come1" when one is in' a
hurry.".. . .
"But you weren't gone long," answered
Beatrice. "I call that a very short time
"Perhaps," he admitted, as he drew
up a chair. "But I was living in antici
pation, you see, and you were not."
"What an arbitrary way you have of
declaring what one's,' thoughts have
been,", laughed the widow. "Are you al
ways certain of every person's feelings?'
"No," he responded slowly and with
out a smile, "I am only sure of my own."
His tone held a significance which his
words did not warrant and Beatrice
flushed under his steady gaze.
"Even at that you are a very, fortunate
person," she forced herself to say
lightly." , : -
"I hope, to be," he answered enigma
tically.. . ,
There was a brief silence which the
man was the first to break.
Mrs. Miner," he said abruptly, as
though spurred by a sue" den resolution.

"I believe you did not wholly believe
whatever it was that Mrs. Bobbins waa
saying to you this afternoon about me."
"What1 Helen was saying?" queried
"She Is a good woman," went on May
nard, "but she Is; queer, strict ideas
which lead her at times to say mora
than she means or has a right to say.
I heard her mention' my name when I
came in today, and although I did not
intend to listen, I also heard her say
something relative to hard drinking. I
know hef well, and In spite Of her New
England conscience, I am fond of her.
Tet I ask you to Judge by facts hereafter
rather than by her statements."
"But how,", asked Helen faintly, "did

"I noted you looked embarrassed when
I came In," said Maynard smiling.
Confession hovered on Beatrice's lips,
but was checked by the memory of Helen
Bobbin's superior I-told-you-so smile
when Maynard was announced.
"I honestly did not catch exactly wha(
she said," Maynard admittted, "but, please
don't believe It too entirely. I scarcely
think you did, anyway."
s"No," -responded Beatrice, verbally
truthful. "I didn't"
"I -value your good opinion," Robert
said gently "more than I dare hope you
But at "this" Juncture th6 maid burst
into, the small room holding Beatrice's
small son by the arm, ;
"Please, ma'am!" she gasped, . "Master
Jack has cut his hand something dread,
full What shall 1-do?" ;
The sight of the pale little boy and
the crimson flood turned Beatrice faint.
It was Maynard- who grasped the child
and wrapped around the gash the cloth
the .bewildered servant held out to him;
it was he who telephoned for the doctor
and calmed ' the frightened mother and
the sobbing child. When the physician
had arrived and order had been restored
Maynard tactfully took his departure,
reminding Beatrice of his desire to be
of service at any time she or the lad
might need a man's help.
An hour later a long box came to the
widow. She opened it and gasped ' at
the pale' glory of the orchids that f (lied
it. . On top of them lay a card.
"Can I come day after tomorrow night
to finish our talk?" ran the message.
"Best wishes for the boy's comfort. R.
The weather vagaries of the last six
months sharpen one's appreciation of the
account ' of the summerless year 1816,
which, according to the Danbury, Conn.,
News, Is found In the pages of an old
diary begun in 1810 and kept unbroken
until 1840. "January was so mild that
most persons allowed their fires to go
out and did not burn wood except for
cooking February was not cold

was Inclined to be windy April
came In warm, but as the days grew
longer the air became colder, and Vy the
1st of May there was a temperature like
that of winter, with plenty of snow and
Ice. In May the young buds were frozen
dead. Ice formed half an Inch thick on
ponds and rivers, corn was killed and
the cornfields were planted again and
again until it became too late to raise
a crop June was the coldest
month of roses ever experienced In this
latitude Snow fell ten inches
deep in Vermont. There was a seven
Inch fall in the Interior of New York
state and the same in Massachusetts
All summer long the wind blew
steadily from the north in blasts, laden
with snow and ice On the Fourth
of July ice as thick as wlndowglass
formed throughout New England, New
York, and In some parts of Pennsylvania
To the surprise of everybody,
August proved the worst month of all.
Almost every green thing in this country
and Europe was blasted with frost"
From . an old-fashioned summer of this
kind most of us will pray to be delivered.

A MEAL SUN STARFISH DEVOURING OYSTERS
AND MUSSELS. ,
In a former article in The Bee some
pictures were exhibited of the wonderful
creatures of the deep sea animals whose
progenitors apparently sought the gloom
of the ocean's botton in preference to
remaining in the brighter world of shal
low water above. '
We saw how many of these animals.
In order to find their way about In the
sunless depths that surround them, have
developed phosphorescent organs whlph
enable them to provide a light of their
own, while others, as If abandoning the
use of eyes altogether, have gradually
lost the organs of vision possessed by
their relatives above. We also saw that
these deep-sea animals, living out where
there ts no sunlight to bring out the ef
fects of color, are generally very -dark
of hue. If not absolutely black and destitute-
of the brlliant markings possessed
by creatures which revel In the sunlight.

Inhabitants of the Seabed a-Gleam
with Strange and Luitroui Beauty.
Today we show pictures of animals
which inhabit parts of the sea bed which
d'q not He so deep that some sunshine
cannot penetrate there, and which, la
contrast with the Inhabitants of the great
abysses, are so brlllantly adorned wth
colors that naturalists in describing them
have to compare them with the most
glorious gems, such as rubles, emeralds
and sapphires. They exceed the most
beautiful flowers In splendor, because
their bodies are frequently composed of
more or less translucent (light-penetrable)
tissues, which often seems to be self
luminous. This gives vivacity to their
colors wtoich only polshed and highly ra
fractlve Jewels possess.
Among these are the Jelly fishes, the
corals, the sea-anemones "anemone"
meaning a wind flower. But no flower
has so much liveliness of color as these
animals exhibit. Tet when these same
animals are taken out of the water they
lose nearly all of their brilliance.
Even animals that by their forms are
repulsive when taken out of their ele
ment, such as sea-spiders, spider-crabs,
hermit-crabs, star-fishes and sea-urchins,
are very beautiful when seen In the
water. TJiey stalk about thera like
strange knights clothed In shining dam
ascened armor. Borne seem to be decor
ated with burning Jewels. , The light
around them Is faint compared wth that
out of the water, and their brilliant
translucent colors displayed in their dim
world go far to counteract the relative
gloom of their surroundings.
In some places the seabed, at no great
depth lnr the shores, Is wonderfully
crowded with these creatures and the
different species live together In imme.

ent famlles of animals doing on the
earth's surface-except, perhaps in a

are not only without beauty of color, but
so shapeless that they look rather like
bits of rock or stone than living animals.
Some, toe, seem to conceal such beauty
as they possess from all outer view. The
