So you are Love, you person gracious lipped
And radiant! How strange! I scarcely fear
My heart In bondage, but your fingers tipped
With rosy warmth into my fingers steal.
So you are Love, full beautiful, 1 thought.
Your eyes might be the eyes that Pain would weur.
Or that your hair would be severely caught
Beneath the black cowl of the garb of Prayer.
And you are Love a maid, no coifed pure saint.
Nor with Pain's sterner gaze reproaching me.
But Life Is Pain, and Prayer must bring restraint,
And so you save the soul. Love, of all three.

F irting and the Price
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
The point of the old quotation is that
in spring the young man's fan y lightly
turns to thoughts of lovo! And, sadly
enough, few girls place the emphasis
where It belongs. Spring Is the season
for flowering all through . Nature, and
young hearts s"em then to blossom In
the fulness of life's sunshine. But it Is
bitterly sad that weeds are often attrac
Uvo to .the untrained eye that does not
distinguish tliem from worthier blossoms.
In the urge of young desire for lov
and tho warmth of loving, too many boys
and girls rush madly into the spring gar- j
den of Mfe-and pick weeds. One of the I
most noxious weeds I know Is that of
flirtation. Think of the utter danger of :
rushing Into a love affair or a friendship :

for lovers and love-making.
Soon after Tommy'a departure, and
before the triumvirate could complete
their arrangements for the retreat to
the streets contingent to
,n th" neighborhood began to
men and women, who looked
dregs of the city.
But It was Immediately In front of the
houae that the crowd was thickest and
moat menacing. Here men made fiery,
unbridled speeches and were cheered to
the echo; and here the police, elect, un
perturbed, superb In danger, wondered
in thlr hearts If they were going to live
through the day.
There was no actual violence until
Ounsdorf arrived. He. high above the
crowd on an improvised rostrum, roared
for blood and vengeance.
Weapons began to flash.
Then the police tried to disperse the
mob, and. aftar hard fighting and the
breaking of many heads, were overpow
ered, paased over and swept aadde. Then
the crowd began to swarm over the tall
Iron gates and th spiked Iron fence. One
man slipped, and so Impaled himself that
when he finally tore loose and dropped to
the ground be was In a dying condition.
There was a fountain a bronze youth,
arms akimbo, who with puffed cneeka
blew a fhio spray of water. Htm certain
stray violent men pried from hla base
and used, swinging htm by the feet and
arms, to batter down tho solid, heavy
front door of the houae.
This don the leaders rushed in, and
for a moment were halted by the un
compromising dignity aud graudour of
the hall. Facing them was a flight of
marble steps. At the top of these stood
Gordon Barclay. When the crowd re
cognised btm they yeded like a pack
of wolves. The corners of his mouth
twitched with a kind of glassy contempt.
He turned slowly and paaaed through, a
doorway that was Just fceiund bun,
slammed th door shut and locked It. Not
till then did he show a sign of fear or
haste. Now, however, he ran swiftly
through the library, out at th other end.
and down a back stairway to the ser
vice courtyard. Here, headed for tad
wooden gates In a tall brick wall over
wh.ch wisteria was festooned, stood a
powerful limousine car. The engine was
purring. On the box sat two brave and
handsome young men In the Barclay
livery. In th body of the car sat 8eui
mes and Bturtevant. hturtevant looked
furloUKly angry, tiemmes looked sea-alck.
At the g.ites stood two footmen ready
to fl.ng them open. Most of the crowd

was a ,4f automatic.
Meanwhile tho bronse boy of the foun
tain came up the front stair, battered
head first, and was used to ram down
the door behind which Barclay had been
reen to disappear.
The flrat man to enter the long rich
library was Ounsdorf. He gave only a
glance at the open panel which disclosed
the Inviting Interior of a safe, or at the
greenbacks and yellowbacks of all de
nominations which the wllejr financier
had scattered about the room, on tables,
on chairs, on the floor such things were
for children. )
Raging for hla oomrades to follow him,
Ounsdorf ruahed the length of th room,

had retreated, and cam In lesa time than j

Not alt the eloquence of enthusiastic
naturalists describing the beauty of col
oring and the graoe of motion that
characterize many serpents oaa persuade
th average peraon
to admire those
reptiles or even
willingly to put UP
with their pres
ence. There la no doubt
that the choice of
the serpent to rep
resent the - de
stroyer of man's
happiness In the
Garden of Eden
waa based upon In
stinctive r e p u g
nance for th lurk
ing, malignant na
ture of the ophi
dian, whose lethal weapon Is pot
To th questionable sort of compensa
tion which nature bestowed upon the
serpent In 1U fangs was added another
gift by way of corollary, the) power of
fascination. The existence of such a
power has been strongly denied, and no
doubt Its manifestations have been ex
aggerated; nevertheless Its reality seems
to have been established. Cases of fas
cination by serpents of birds and other
small animals have been too frequently
reported to admit of serious doubt on
the subject. Evidently It Is simply a
kind of hypnotism, and based, like human
Uypottsm, on the effects of rhythmical
Impressions made upon the nervous sys
tem. Experiment has proved that the
monotonous swinging of a glittering ob
ject before the eyes will throw many
men and women Into hypnotlo sleep.
When a serpent charms, or fasrlnates a
bird or small quadruped It employs a
similar method. It swsys Its head with
glittering eye, or sets tho brilliantly
colored colls Into silent rhythmlo move
ment, within sight of Its victim, and the
lattor gradually y elds to th Influence.
But the most dangerous serpents are
themselves subject to this very hypnotic
control, a fact which Is the basis of
the proceedings of the serpent charmers
of India, and those of other countries
where vennmwts snakes abound.
MjsIc, or the monotonous reptltlon of
musical notes, appears to be the most ef
fective agent In serpent charming. It
may be remarked that according to some
observers, the sounds produced by a rat
lesnake. and even the loud hissing of
some serpents, have a hypnotlo Influence,
or at least a sort of paralyzing force,
due, probably, to terror. The cobras of
southen Asia and the closely related
rajaa of Africa will come out of holes,
erect their heads and part of their bodies,
and sway about In a kind ot serpent dance
when they hear the notes of a pip
played by a skilled performer.
However, no cobra charmer ever haa
sufficient confidence In his control over
his dangerous subjects to neglect the
removal of their fangs.

a man within a few minutes of It In
