continental manner, and his foreign liabit
of paying pretty compliments. But she
.was not calm or quit sane this morning,
jknd in her Heart she despised the man as
one only despises the person who, wit
tingly or unwittingly, puts oneilrreparably
- In the wrong, and makes ono ashamed of
one's self. Rejected love may change to
hatebt hurt vanity ferment- into a
more bitter and less dignified emotion.
As' Beatrice stood before her dressing
table, her eyes fell upon the ancient
-bracelet which lay there, and she took it
Into her fingers that she might examine
It more closely.1 But in a flash the mem
ory of her eager anticipation of a dif
ferent gift from Randolph sickened her,
and, with a muttered exclamation of dis
gust, she threw th" beautiful trinket upon
the table, from whjjch. it rolled to -the
floor, where it'.lay unnoticed .until Mary
' coming in laterto make the bed jrtcked

.. this morning, and when her toilette was
' completed," . .'troUed' into: the breakfast
room, where the children were already
"What's the matter mother?" asked
Jack as the woman with a wan smile of
greeting, seated herself at the table.
"I've a little headache that's all," an
swered Beatrice.- .' '
"You've been crying," accused Jean.
"Does it hurt so much?"
1 "A good deal," replied her mother.
And then, to change the subject, she re
marked; "Lucy Horton. had a nice party
last night, didn't she?" . ;
"Yep!" responded Jack, deep in his
; porridge. "Mr. and Mrs. Horton were
there, too, and Mi. Maynard and Miss
Damerel, and, of course, lots of kids too."
; "Did you have a good time?" asked
"Beatrice. ' . v;..
"Yes, mother," answered Jean. "And
don't you think Miss Damerel's awful
pretty and nice, too?" ' ;
"She's very nice," agreed Beatrice. She
found it hard this morning to admit
that .there was any beauty in the face
of the girt whom she had first met at
Sidney Randolph's studio.
TJvere was a moment's silence, which
Beatrice broke by the question:
"Did either of you children speak 'to
Mr. Maynard?" j
"Yes." declared Jack, Importantly, "I
did. "We had quite a long talk together
'him and me. He asked about you, mother,
and I said that you were well, and that
'you were going to get Mr. Randolph for
your new husband and that I wished
it was him."
"Jack!", gasped Beatrice, horrified.
"Yes'm, I did!" continued the lad Un
observant of his mother's pale face and
tnse figure. He held the center of the
stage and was full of excitement at the
Joy of imparting information. "And Mr.
Maynard asked me how I knew, and I
said you 'told me."
' "Jack!" repeated his mother, '
tn bar tAmnlaa. At last She rose with a
I-sigh-and went search .pf: her., unhappy
children. V' . ,
"Jak," she said gentry, but firmly, as
the boy reased his tear-stanned eyes to
hers, "the thing that made me angry
with you was your telling what was not
"But, mother," sniveled the illd, "it
was only what you told me."
. "No," reproved Beatrice, "I did not tell
"But wasn't that what you, meant?"
persisted Jack, "and you didn't say not
to tell." ,

"Even If I meant it .dear," said the
mother, "you shouldn't havo told it.
Gentlemen don't repeat to other men
things women have told them."
- "Yes'm," gulped the lad. "I'm sorry,
mother; honest. I am!" ,
After restoring peace In the nursery
Beatrice crept, shaken and wearied, to
her own room and bilrled her aching head
In her pillow. She was sick of all this
scheming, this sham, this subterfuge.
She was still, reviling herself tor her
recent conduct when Mary entered, bring
Ing a letter, snd at a glance the widow
recognised "Uncle Henry's" scrawl. As
soon ss her maid had left the room the
woman tore open the envelope and
eagerly devoured the contents. Her head
swam as she read:
My Dear Friend I have desired for a
long time to ask you a question which I
can write better than I can speak. It Is
this: Will you marry me. I love you. 1
don't need to tell you that, (or you must
have seen It already. I have enough
means to support you and your Tlttls one
In ease and luxury.
Don't be too quick In answering this.
Think It over carefully, snd then write
me your answer, , Whatever It may be, I
shall always remain, devotedly yours.
. ;, HENRY BLANCHARD.
Beatrice read . the letter twioe. Then
she sprang to her feet, and a light as of
hope came IhtyJ her eyes which, but a few
minutes ago; had been so heavy. Her
headache was forgotten and the hurt to
her vanity was almost healed.'
Autumn begins on the 134 at 4:0 a. m.
when the sun crosses the equator and
enters ths sign of Libra, Day and night
are equal that flay alt over the world.
The sun would then rise at a. m. and
set st p. m. exactly, according to what
la called local apparent time, that la,
the time shown by a sun dial, wm It not
that the rising It accelerated and the set
ting retarded three minutes by refrac
tion. A rlock would need a further csr
reotlon of seven and ' one-half ' minutes
because the sun Is that much slow on the

a few seconds on the lt to ten min

time the sua rises at I a. m. on the

It rises on the 1st, 15th and JOth of this

Mercury Is morning star and farthest

whole year to see this planet before sun

Well, sed' Pa, the facks In the case are
these: Early In tha eevnlng I was on my
way up town to play a galm of pinokel
with two honest, thrifty, German friends
of mine, ft along calm Mister Whitman.
Mister Whitman was plainly tired out,
sed Pa. Any time you find a big leaguer
like him, sed Pa, with enuif bravery to
buck the n-tira poleece department, yoo
will find a man that Is high strung. His
face was pale A cars worn, sed Pa. My
heart went out to him.

' Yes, td Pa, it did. I am not ths kind
of a man that will stand idly by 4b seo a
reel hero wanting for a lutenant Bo I

Whitman, feel of the mussels of this arm.
Look into my quickly shitting eye. Do

Then Pa went'on to tell Ma how Mister
Whitman ln-slsted on his going to the
Cooper Union meeting, A how ho had

They eat too much.
Now, husband; sed Ma, I am going to

place, Ma sed, you were not at Cooper
Union. Tou are at the end of yure rope
the mlnint you start to stall with me,
sed Ma. Then Ma grabbed a rose out of
Pa's buttonhole & held it up for me to
see It, & sed: "
: Bobble, what does it say on the stem
of this rose?
I hated to tell en Pe. beekaus I got a
other quarter from him yesterday, but
