"Well considering the articles which
Appeared in the morning and consid-
ering nUo the exhibition 1 made of my-
telf in attempting to cxplniu the merits
of the mine I think things went off
"So do I. it doesn't strike yon that
they went off too smoothly docs it?"
"What do you mean?"'
"1 don't know exactly what I mean.
1 merely wanted to get your opinion
nhotit it. You see 1 lmvc attended a

"Well as a general thing in such
meetings when a man gets up iilid pro-
poses a certain action there is home
opposition or somebody has n sugges-
tion to make or something better to
propose or thinks he has and so there
is u good deal of talk. Xutv when King
got up and proposed calmly that Mel-
ville flionld go to America it appeared
to 1110 rather an extraordinary thing
to do unless h had consulted Melville
"Perhaps he had done so."
"Yes perhaps. What do you think
Kenyon mused for a moment before
he replied: "As I said befnr I thought
things went oil very smoothly. Whom
do you suspect young I.ongworth?"

"Yes I see that. Still it is only a
question of facts on which they have to
leport and you know as well as 1 do
that no truthful men can report un-
faorably on what wo have slated. We
have understated the case in every In-
"I know that. I am jierfectly well
aware of that. Kierythlngisall right if
if Longworth is dealing honestly
with us. If he is not everything is all
wrong and I should feel a great deal
easier If wo had in our possession an-
other three months' option of the mine.
We arc now at the fag end of this op-
tion and it seems to me as a protection
to ourhches we ought cither to write
to Von llrcnt by the way have you
cicr written to him?"
"I wrote one letter telling him how
we liens getting on but liavo rceciied
no answer. Perhaps ho is not in Ot-
tawa at present."
"Well I think you ought to go to the
mines with I.ongworth and Melville. It
is the conjunction of those two men that
makes me suspicious. I can't tell what
I suspect. 1 can give nothing definite
but I have a lague uneasiness when 1
think that the man who tried to mis-
lsad us regarding the inlue of the min-
eral is going with the man who has led
us into all litis expense; he who refused
to go Into the matter in the first place
pretended he had forgotten all about it
in the second place and then suddenly
dcveloped an Interest."
John knitted his brows and raid noth-
ing. "I don't want to worry yon about it
hut I do want your candid opinion.
What had wo better do?"
"It seems to jne" said John after a
pause "that we can du nothing. It is
a lery perplexing situation. 1 think
however we should turn It over in our
minds for a. few. duyr. and then I can
get to America in plenty of time if nee-
es&ary." "Very well; suppose we glie them
ten days to get to the mine and reply.
If no reply comes by the eleventh day
then you will still have eighteen or
nineteen days before the option ev

lid you not?"
"Are you going?"
"I do not know. I should like to
fo and yet you know. I am entirely
i.uused to fashionable assemblages i
should not know what to say cw do
while I was there."
"As I understand it is not to lie n
fashionable party but merely a little
friendly gathering which Miss Long--worth
giies because her cousin
' Is about to bail for Canada.
I don't wnnt to Hatter you
John but 1 imagine Miss Long-
worth would be rather disappointed if
you did not put in nppeurauce. He
bides as we are partners with Long-
north in this nnd as he Is going nwny
en account of the mine I think it 11 ould
be a little ungracious of us not to go."
"Very well; I will go. Shall I call
for you or will you come for me?"
"I will call for you and we will go
there together in a cab. He ready about

brilliantly lighted that night and John
felt rather fnlnt-hcarted as he stood
on the. steps before going in. Tlio
chances are he would not haic had the
courage to announce himself if his
friend Wentworth had not been with
Jilm. George however had no such
qualms and was much more used to
this kind of thing than his comrade.
60 they went in together and were
warmly greeted by the young hostess.
"It is bo kind of you to come" sh"
said "on such short notice. I was
nfraid you might have had some prior
engagement and would have found It
impossible to get here."
"You must not think thai of me."
said Wcntworth. "I was certain to
come; but I must confess my friend
Kenyon here was rather dltllcult to
inunngc. He seems to frown on fash-
ionable assemblages and actually had
the coolness to propose that we should
both have prior engagements."
lMlth looked reproachfully at Ken-
yon who Hushed to the temples as
was usual with him and said:
"Now Wentworth that is unfair. You
must not mind whathe says Miss Ixmg-
worth; lie likes to bring confusion on
me and ho knows how to do it. I cer-
tainly snid nothing about a prior en-
gagement" "Well now you are here 1 hope you
will enjoy yourselves. It Is quite ni.
informal little gathering with noth-
ing to abash even Mr. Kenyon."
They found young Longworth there
in company with Melville who was to
be his companion on the loyagc. He
shook hands but without exhibiting
the pleasure nt meeting them which his
cousin had shown.
"My cousin" said the young man.
"seems resolved to make the going of
the prodigal nephew an occasion for
klllinif the fatted calf. I'm sure I
don't know why unless that she is
glad to be rid of me for 11 month."
Hdith laughed at this and left tin'
men logetlicr. Wentworth soon con-
trived to make himself very iigrcenblc
to the young ladles who were present?
but John It must be admitted felt
awkward and out of place. He was
not enjoying himself. He caught him-j-cK
now unci then following Kdlth
l.ongvvorih with his eyes; and when he
realized he was doing this he abruptly
looked at the floor. In her hnndsome
evening dress she appeared su-
premely lovely nnd this John Ken-
yon admitted to himself with a
sigh for her very lovelincssscemed
to place her further and further
away from him. Somebody played
something on the piano and this was
in a way a respite for John. He felt
that nobody was looking at him. Then
a young man gave a recitation which
was very n ell received nnd Kenyon be-
gan to forget his uneasiness. A Gov
man gentleman with long hair sai
down at the plnno with a good denl of
importance in his demeanor. There
was much arranging of music and
finally when the leaves were settled to
his satisfaction there w as a trprnendou3
crash of chords the beginning of ivha'
w as evidently going to bo a troublesome
time for the piano. In the midstof this
hurricane of sound John Kenyon be
came aware that Kdlth Longworth had
sat down beside him.
"I have got every one comfortably
settled with every one clbc" she snid
in a whisper to him "nnd you seem to
be the only one who Is as it were out
in the cold so you sec I have done you
the honor to come and talk to you."
"It is indeed an honor" bald John
"Oh really" said the young woman
laughing very softly "you must not
take things so seriously. I didn't mean
(plitc what 1 said you know that was
only as the children say 'pretended'
but you take one's light remarks as if
they were most weighty sentences.
"Whr do you not (to to America?"
Now you must look as if you were en-
tertaining me charmingly w herons I
have sat down bebide you to have a
very few minutes' talk on business. I
know it's very bad form to talk busi-
ness at an evening party but you see I
have no other chance to speak to you.

meetings of shareholders and yet you
never sent me an invitation although
I fold you that I wished to help you in
forming a company but that is the way

"Iteaily Miss I.ongworth" liegan
Kenyon but she speedily interrupted
"I um not going to let you muke any
explanation. I have come over here to
enjoy teolding you and I am not to be
cheated out of my pleasure."
"1 think" said John "if you knew
how much I have sulTered during this
lust duy or two you would lc very
lenient with me. Did you read that ar-
ticle upon me in the Financial Field?"
"No; 1 did not. but I read your reply
to it tills morning and 1 think it was
"Ah that was hardly fair. A person
should read both sides of the question
IWorc pushing judgment."
"It is a woman's idea of fuirness"
said Kdlth. "to read what pertains to
her friend and to form her judgment
without hearing tho other side. Hut
you must not think I am going to fore-
go scolding you because of my sympa-
thy for you. Don't you remember your
promises to let me know how your
company was getting on from time to
time and here I have never heard a
word from you; now tell nic how you
have been getting on."
"I hardly know but 1 think we. are
getting on very well Indeed. You
know of course that your cousin is go-
ing to America to report tipou the
mine. As 1 have stated nothing but
what is perfectly true about tho prop-
erty there can be no question as to
what that report will be so it seems to
me everything Is going on nicely."
"Why do you not go to America?"
'Ah I well I am an interested party
and those who aic thinking of going
with us have my report already. It Is
neccessary to corroborate that. When
it is corroborated I expect ive shall
hnio no trouble in forming a com-
pany." "And was 'William chobcn by those
men to go to Canada?"
"He was not exactly chosen; he vol-
unteered. Mr. Melville here was tho
one who was chosen."
"And why Mr. Melville more than
you for instance?"
"Well ns I said 1 am out of the ques-
tion because I am an interested parly.

"No he is not I never saw him until
he came to the meeting."
"Do you know " she said low crlng hei

Kenyon glnnccd at Melville who ivim

went on: "You must not look at pcopb

Now 1 think you ought to go yourself."

iijost charming hypocrisy the voting
woman thanked tho professor for the
music to which she had not listened lit

f.nid Wentworth when they had got
outside again. It was a clear star

walk home together.

nnswered Kenyon; "much better than
I expected. It tvus a little awkward nt
first but I got over that."
"I noticed you did with help."
"Yes 'with help. "

recover from his surprise she flushed a
look at him that bent a thrill to the

himself against any recurrence of a

Women of Long Ago.
Long before the Nuzarcne there were
Greek and Homan vestal virgins whose
chaste lives led through rosy paths and
who were spared all the unpleasant
things of life but not so the Christian
nun whose life hus always been devoted
to work obedience and poverty. Oue of
the early arts was illuminating where
coior and form were used to express
words and prior to the discovery of
printing many of the early Dlbles were
the work of devoted women in convent
life. One miracle women have always
performed is that of unselfishness and
cloistered women hat e been preeminent
in demonstrating that love of God and
man Is the essence of Christianity.

breath of very immy of the members

experience and sound judgment and
when the members learned that she was
willing to continue hnr talk they lis-

"I have had a season of special en-

There are two kinds of mistakes: mis
takes of moment ind trivial mistakes.
Undoubtedly the best service which one
friend can render another is to save
hlni from a mistake liable to be serious
in its results. In such an net lies true
friendship. Hut in these days of crltl
cibin. when we arc ant to criticise eterv-
thing and everybody we nrc nil too npf

ly trivial and not worth correcting. And

Not one of us. eien the most (rood-mi-
I tired likes to hat e his mistakes pointed
out. l e may appear not to mind cor-
rections and accent them with u smile
Hut it is human nature to smnrt undei
correction although some of us maybe
clever enough to coneeiil the smart.
Hence the fewer mistakes we call atten
tion to in others the better. Two-thirds
of the mistakes we muke are trivial
i heir correction Is unimportant. Why
then notice them? Yet sonic people
do nnd do so constantly. A person
spenks of having done a certain thing
on Thursday when In reality it wa
done on Wednesday. If no imjiortant
point is iniohed why call attention to
the mistake? What good does It do to
have the exact day set right? It Is a
matter of no Importance so why insist
upon correcting the trivial error?
Stanch friendships have often been
pricked by this needle of useless correc
tion. It is a great art this art of learn'
Ing to allow others to be mistaken when
the mistake Is unimportant. Few learn
it hut those who do are among the niivtt
comfortable friends one can have.-

to Washington und among other ihings
recited the following incident:
"An incident which could possibly
occur lu no other country on the globe
and which seems to show the fervor of
u most fervid race und gives an insight
into President Andrew Johnson's clinr-

found in a dozen histories of the man
who held every elective office in tho
our sovereign people from
const.-iblo of Columbia Tenn. to pros!

"It was just following the Impeach-

" 'You can.'
"Taking off his battered old hat and
producing from it a yard-square red
handkerchief with which be mopped
his face and wiped his hands he up-
preached the presidential carriage
which was an open one. Whan there
he placed his hat firmly between his
knees spt on his hands extended the

" 'Wlsha how nre ye Andy my

"The beaming smiles on the face of
the old Irishman were refleotcd on the
