"No, not for a week or ten days. Ah!
Royal has ordered a little supper for
us. Let me arrange the table lor you."
Already a shadow had come over her
pleasure trip. Sam would pet her let-
ter and go to New York—and miss her.
She would write that very night and
tell him of the change in their plans.
One step taken, the next is easy.
That night at 11 o'clock young Mr.
Royal Yardstickie called at his
mother's room at their hotel in Boston.
"I'm glad you're up mother. I've
planned a little trip out to Cambridge
for Miss Johnson to-morrow. They
tell me it is the correct thing to do:
and, as the .Judge wishes to visit soc>e
of the courts, you and I and Miss
Johnson might take a little drive.
Discouraged, and alarmed at Mai's
silence, he returned to the boat, only
to find a note calling him back to the I roused himself, but did not look up.
By 3 o'clock he was in his
ami then the paper suddenly fell from
his uerveless grasp. His head bowed
upon his breast in tbo silence of a
broken heart. The little clock ticked
loudly in the darkening room, for the
night was drawing near. After awhile
the elder man came in, listless, sore at
heart, and forgetful of all save of the
one grief that had invaded the house,
lie paused 111 surprise at seeing his son,
but, observing the newspaper ou the
lloor, ho picked it up. There were
spots upon it as if wet, and near one
stain he read these words:
"Among the engagements on the
tapis is that of Mr. K. Yardstickie to
Miss Johnson, late of Wilson's HolL"
"What shall 3*011 do, Sam?"
The young man with an effort
city, isy ;i ociock ne was in his em-
ployer's oftiee on Pearl street.
"Fact is Johnson, business is boom-
ing. Must lay the yacht off for the
present."
It was all arranged in a few mo-
ments, checks drawn to pay off the crew
and wind up the season afloat. Every-
thing was done on a generous scale,
wages paid for a month ahead, and
tickets provided to take the men to
their homes. Skipper Johnson was the
last to leave, and it took two days to
wind up all accounts and turn the boat
and her stores over to a keeper. Every
hour seemed a day; and only when he
was, at last, on the New London boat
bound east did he feel at ease. At

set of robes for Miss Johnson. It's'
very thoughtful in the .Judge, because
the girl's things are just a little, a-
very little, out of date."
The young man took the letters nnd
said he would go himself to the office
with them. On his way down in the
elevator he turned them over.
own pleasure, Mai Johnson put away
all fears and gave herself up to the en-
joyment of the hour. It was a new
experience to have everything made so
smooth and pleasant. All trouble was
saved, it seemed to her. She did not
have to think what should be prepared
for breakfast, or eveu to look out of
the window to see if it would be a good
day for the wash to dry. The homely
routine of her life seemed far behind
her. Then, too, it was a new experi-

lover, •lie would not leave them at
the office; ho would put them in a

brightly-lighted streets, looking for a
mail-box. lie passed two without
seeing them. He was hesitating again,
but with weaker will this time.
Never before had the yacht made
ftuch a splendid run through the
Sound. The wind held good, and they
passed Execution Light and came
through East River to the bay with a
fair wind and a swift title. The
moment the yacht had come
to anchor off the steamboat-landing
at Ray Ridge, Skipper Johnson had out
a boat, and he and the yacht's passen-
gers were rowed ashore just in time to
catch the boat for Yew York. Arrived
there, the skipper took car for the
postolhce.
"You are sure there is no letter for
me?" he asked of the sleepy 'clerk.
"Sure. None here."
"There arc no other places in town.
no branch offices?"
"Lots of 'em; but }'ou wouldn't find
it at any of them unless it was so di-
rected. All letters directed 'city'
would l e here."
It was too late to do anything now.
Mai had not written here. Why, of
cpurse not. I£is'letters were at the
at ever}' step from one so much older
and wiser than herself. She began to
take great pleasure in the Judge's so-
ciety. His learning and wide experi-
ence stimulated her naturally active
mind, and she found herself talking
with liim with a freedom and confi-
dence that surprised herself. Every- j
where they went they met people of !
distinction, to many of whom she was j
presented by the Judge much as a
father might present a daughter. * |
With new pleasures offered to her
every hour, and constant change 'of
scene, the days flew quickly, and a
week had passed almost before she 1
noted it. Still they were among the i
mountains, and another week passed
before they reached Saratoga. Mrs.
Gearing was an industrious letter-
writer, and had every day one or more j
letters which she intrusted to
her son [to put in the mails.
So it happened that, witliout
j attracting cthe slightest attention,
voung Mr. Yardstickie mailed Mai's
letters also. She wrote frequently,
directing all^to Wilson's lloll, know-
ing that, it Sam had not }-et returned,
her father w6uld send them to him.
; By the third week she began to be im-
patient to get to New York. There
| must be many letters waiting there for i
; her, and 3'et she did not like to ask to
1 shall do nothing—except go to
work. Work's the only cure. I go a*
fishing—to-morrow."
Unconsciously this young soul in its
trial repeated the saint's words. "I go
a-fishing." He look to labor and to
the sea—he looked to duty—for the
cure that work and natui<s alone can
give.
"You're right, my boy. She ain't
my darter—never was nor never will
be. Let her go."
Just at that instant the clock struck,
and the old man with a start opened
the door and ran up the iron stairs to
his duty in the lantern.
The captain of the light-ship made
another entry in his log-book. Reing
a man of narrow and selfish mind, he
copied, that night, two items from the
log>jook, 'and the next day rowed
ashore and sent a letter to the
Light-House Roard at Washing-
ton. Thus it is a tiitie is
like a pebble thrown in calm water or
a sudden note on still air; it spreads in
a ring-like wave, widening jind widen-
ing, till, lost to sight or ear, it breaks
on distant shores in vast disaster.
The steamer was already six days
from Queenstown. The Grand Ranks
were far behind, and the southern
corner of Cape Cod lay beyond the
horizon to the north of west. Four
mouths had passed since Mai Johnson
had left the shelter of lledgefenee
Light. She sat in a steamer-chair on
deck, wrapped in a seal-skin cloak—a
changed and yet an unhappy woman.
Everything the world considered good
had been bestowed upon her—all the
advantages of wealth, travel, beauti-
ful apparel, personal ease and comfort,

asking at the telegraph-office for a re-
ply, and there was none. For three
hours he wandered about the streets,
waiting for word that came not. To
thiuk Mai was in this very city and he
could not find her ! At noon he re-
turned to the yacht, and found this
message from his father:

thought, on the speed of Lthe tele-
graph:

letters here from her."
$ His pride was gone, and he boldly
said to the young girl at the telegragh
office that he wished to find Judge
Gearing's, for a friend of his was stay-

No more exhiloratlng little expedi-

What was to bo done with those Hill

Thus it happens that tho Japanese

of constabulary in the world. They
aro a finely disciplined body, small
in stature, but well drilled, and cx-
pert in tho uso of tho steol-scabbard-
ed weapon which dangles at their
liools.
It is to tho foreigner—whether ho
bo tho veriest outcast of a no-nation-
ality sailor from a kcrosono 6hip, or
a slick moneyed globe trotter—that
tho essential politeness of the Japan-
ese policeman is shown fn all its na-

POISON AT DRUG STORES.
Most Deadly Subntanoun May Ito Ob-
tained in tho Original Packagn.
If there is ono thing just a little
moro absurd than another it is tho
way poisons aro sold in New York.
A physician taken with a toothacho
in a part of tho town out of his usual
beat went into a drug store on Lex-
ington avenue to get a littlo bella-
donna, says tho Recorder. Tho clerk
would not sell it to him. Jle referred
to tho directory, and producod his
visiting cards to show who ho was.
Tho clerk was adamant—ho would
feel 1 a small dose of belladonna to no
one he did not know. Tho doctor
offered to write a proscription for
himself, but his proposal was scorned.
I -Then tho doctor said ho would take a
I bottle of elixir of opium, and though
tho clerk was "riled" there was noth-
ing for him to do but to sell it. Of
course there was enough of it to kill a
dozen people. A day or two after
that a woman who is now in an in-
sane asylum, and who oven trion had
tho light of madness in her eyes,
went into another apothecary shop
and with no difficulty at all bought
an ounce bottle of morphine. Of
course she went home and tried to
kill herself. After she had taften
the morphine she was taken to a hos-
pital and a do'.on podplo made a
night of it whipping her, walking
her, olectricising her and finally sav-
ing her life. Anything in tho orig-
inal package can bo got anywhere.
Small doses there is a lot of fuss
about. A woman wno is a confirmed
victim of opium buys an 44elixer' as
her regular standby, and her family
aro holploss, because anyone will sell
it to her. Another gets an arsenical
pill in boxes as it comes from the
maker. A man, not being subjoct to
the searches usually practiced on
the feminino victim by her family,
constantly gets his morphine in tho
original ounce bottles and says ho
has never had his right to do so
questioned.
