On that delightful reservation In
Washington known us the "Mnll" or
(Smithsonian grounds there stands oihi
of the most famous buildings in the
world namely the "Smithsonian In-
stitution." Although It is not one of
the largest buildings in the world It is
architecturally remarkable. It is built
of Scnecu brownslone and the Gothic
Btyle of architecture makes it resemble
one of the ancient feudal castles with
towers and battlements and embrasures
like loopholes reminding one of tho
nncicnt battles of the nobles when they
fought with arrows instead of guns.
Inside the prospect Is very different
from that of an ancient feudal castle
for there one finds not fierce-bearded
barons with their ladles crouching be-
hind them In fear of the coming foe
with their army of soldiers frenchmen
vnssois serfs servants hirelings and
minions. Next to the British museum
the greatest museum on earth it is a
museum not only of exhibit but of ed-
ucation and for the diffusion of knowl-
edge. Here comes the peculiar and one
might almost say romantic feature of
this Institution; for at Genon Italy
on the 27th day of June and In the year
1S29 one of the noblest men that ever

iflvcfl frames Smithson bequeathed to
the United Stutcs of America the whole
of his fortune amounting in American
money to about $500000 "To' found ac-
cording to the terms of the will at
Washington under the name of 'The
Smithsonian Institution' an establish-
ment for tho increase and diffusion of
knowledge among men."
A death is an ordinary occurrence
rind so is n bequest; but for nn exile
from his own home a gentleman by
birth and education and of the highest
'scientific attainments laboring under
the bar sinister (for lie was an Ille-
gitimate" bou of the duke of Northum-
berland) and with an almost broken
heart at the odium cast upon him by his
blemished name to die in a foreign land
and leave his whole possessions to the
government of another land than that
which gave him birth Is at least a nov-
elty if not a romance.
Born in France where his Kngllsh
mother had gone to escape the odium
of hor disgrace he passed the early
days of his life In the solitude of Ox-
ford schools where In the year of 1785
he was graduated with honors from tho
l'embroke college receiving the degree
o.f master of nrts from that institu-
tion. .In early life he was known as
Iiewis James Macco that being his
mother's name. He did not assume his
father's iname until he had achieved
ome scientific attainments. His fa-
ther hnd been Sir Ilugln Smithson be
fore his morrloge to the daughter of'
Lord Percy had enabled him to assume

the title of duke of Northumberland;
iiiul thus we base the early history of
the man whose nntne to use. his own
words was "to live in the memory of

bcrlands and tfie Percys are extinct and
On the 2Sth of July in the year of
183S John Forsyth the bocretary of
state at Washington received Informa-
tion froin the American charge d'af-
faires at London that the original tes-
tator of tho wilf James Hungerfard
Smlthson's nephew (to 'whom he had
ltft interest in his. property and to
whose children if he should marry and
s have an heir or heirs legitimate or ille-
gitimate lie left all his property ex-
cept an annuity of 100 a. year to one
' John l'itnll an old servant) had died
at I'isa Italy on the 5th day of June
nud in the year of 1835 without heirs'
nnd that as the will runs: "In case of
the death of my said nephew without
leaving a child or children I then be-
queath the whole of my property sub-
ject to the annuity of 100 to John
. -l'itnll and for the security and pay-
ment of which I meuii block to remain
in this country to the United States."
English attorneys having advised
the charge d'affaires at London that it
would be proper for the United States
government to send uttorneys as their
jcpresentatives to England to prose-
cute its Case before the English courts
of chancery the secretary of state hav-
ing transmitted the reports to the presi-
dent on the 17th day of December
1S35 Andrew Jackson then president
nt a message to congress advising
the appointment of a comrniisioner to
go to England to get the money After
sundrv wrangles and debates In com
gress this was accomplished and lion
Itlchard Husk was sent to lCnglaud to
prosecute the claim. Two years later ii;
decree of chancery awarded the money
to the United States and Husk came
heme with it In the ship Mediator.
Then how to apply the money was ths
question. Some advised a public li-
brary others a university. It was
finally decided by the snlons of congress
that the most practical means tudllTtiso
knowledge among mankind was by
original kclentllic research and the
publication af the result of such re-
searches for public distribution. lu
accordance with this lew the Smith-
sonian institution as It now stands was
built but not until the original Smith
sonlun bequest had seen arIous rounds
of fortune. By act of congress dated
July 7 1S33 and while the discussion ad
to what should be done with the be-
quest was still in progress the vvholo
sum of the Smithsonian bequest
amounting then 'to $538000 was invest-
ed in Arkansas state bonds which aft-
erwards became worthless Arkansas
defaulting In the payment of Interest
and settling up a counterclaim of in-
debtedness against the United States.
The congress then made the Smith-
scnlnn bequest good by placing to the
credit of the Smithsonian Institution
in the treasury of the United Stntes the
sum of $338000; nud so it was that the
'Smithsonian institution as it now is
wns begun. Its officers are the presi-
dent of the United States the vice pres-
ident the chief justice of the supreme
court the members of the cabinet three
senators three representatives two res-
idents of the District of Columbia three
residents of different states n secretary
and an assistant secretary. The seers

tlons of the Smithsonian institution
form a library In themselves and are
culled "The Annual Beports" "The
Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collec
tions" "Bulletins of the National Mu
souiii" "I he Annual Beports of the
Bureau of Ethnolopy" nnd "The Bulle
tin of tho Burcnu of Ethnology."
These books arc given to educational
institutions nil over the world. In re
turn for these nnd by purchase the in
stltutlon has received a library of 300-
000 volumes which is deposited in the
congressional library for safe rteeping
It forms perhaps one-fourth of the
vast collection nnd will be allotted n
space by itself in the new library build'
ing. It Is safe to say that to this insti-
tution a great part of tho world's mod
ern progress is due. At least it has en
abled us to keep our shoulder to the
wheel with France tlermany and Eng
In 1881 a new library was built at a
cost of $250000 to accommodate the
growing needs of the Nntlonal museum
whoso collections of wonderful curiosi-
ties had become so large that the orig'
inal building was no longer able to hold
it. The bureau of exchange establishes
communication with scholars In all
parts of the world by which their pub
Mentions are exchanged for publications
of similar societies.
The bureau of American ethnology
has preserved all the vocabularies of
the different types of American iudians
n substantia! volumes. Their indefati-
gable author Powell who has been in
charge of the bureau since 1870 has
undertaken mauy important expedi
tlons .to the west notably among the
tribes of Utah California Ari.ona and
iew Mexico by which the stock of
knowledge added to American ethnol
ugy has beeu very largely increased
The Important expeditions of the Ste-
UMihons Cushlngs Fuwlcs and the
MuddeseiTh among The Pueblo Indians
atid the ruins of the southwest; those
of Holmes .among tho prehistoric
quarry cities and villages of the east-
ern part of the continent; those of
Thomas among the mounds of the Mis-
sissippi valley nnd of the northeast sec-
tion nmong the Popago and Serl In-
dians of the southwest have also been
conducted under the authority of the
bureau of ethnology.
The Zoological park was established
by the aid of congress in the year 1800
for the preservation of such American
animals as were then on the verge of
extinction. The park is situated north
of Washington in the beautiful pre-
cinct of Bock creek contains 1G7
acres and is the largest of its kind
in the world.
Besides the original bequest of Smith-
win congress every year makes an ad-
ditional appropriation for the mainte-
nance of the institution.
There have been numerous gifts from
private Individuals notably those of
.fa mi's Hamilton of Carlisle Pa.; Dr.
Jerome Kidder of Washington D. C;
Alexander Graham Bell Thomas O.
llodgkins nnd Bobert Stanton Avery.
The museum has also received numer-
ous contributions of valuable curiosities
from various individuals in different
pnrts of the country such ns the gift
of Dr. Isaac Sea of Philadelphia of
two valuable collections of gems; the
collection of Indian portraits by John
Catlin and Snrcoe's collection of fossil
plants and birds' eggs.

A glimmer of rt smile hovered about
the red lips of n girl n rmile hardly
perceptible but giving nn effect to her
clenr complexion ns if n sunbeam had
crept into the room and its reilection
had lit up her face.
"I hnve come to apologise Mr. Went-
worth" sho said nt last. "I find it u
cry difficult thing to do nnd as I don't
know just how to begin I'll plunge
right into It."
"You don't need to apologise to nn
for anything Miss Brewster" replied
Wentworth rather stiffly.

"Oh yes I do. Don't make it harder
than it is by being too frigidly polite
rbout it but say you accept tli
apology and that you're sorry no 1
don't mean that I should say that
jou're sure I'm sorry and that yon
know I won't do itngain."
Wentworth laughed and Mlss
Brewster joined him.
"There" she said "Hint's ever s'
much better. I suppose you've been
thinking hard tilings of me ever slnca
wo last met."
"I've tried to" replied Wentworth.
"Now that's what I call honest; be-
sides I like the implied compliment I
think it's very neat Indeed. I'm rcnlly
very very sorry thnt I that things
happened as they did. I wouldn't hnve
blamed you if you hnd used exceeding-
ly strong language about it at the
"I must confess that I did."
"Ah" said Jennie with n sigh "yon
men have so many comforts denied to
us women. But I came here for an-
other purpose; if I had merely wanted
to apologize I think I would have writ-
ten. I want some information which
you can give me if you like."
The young woman rested her elbows
on the table with her chin in her
hands gazing ncross nt him earnestly
and innocently. Poor George felt that
it would be impossible to refuse any
thing of those large beseeching eyes.
"I want yon to tell me nbout your
All the geniality that had gradually
come into AVentworth's face and man-
ner vanished instantly.
"So this is the old business over
again" he said.
"How can you say that!" cried
Jennie reproachfully. "I am asking
for my own satisfaction entirely and
not for my paper. Besides I tell you
frankly -what I want to know and
don't try to get it by indirect means
by false pretenses as you once said."
"How can you expect me to give you
information that does not belong to
-' I -want you to tell me something about your
me alone? I have no right to speak of
r. business which concerns others with-
out their permission."
"Ah then there are atleast two others
concerned in the mine" said Jennie
gleefully. "Kcnyon is one I know
who Js the other?"
".Miss Brewster I will tell you noth-
ing." "But you have told me something al-
ready. Please go on and talk Mr.
Wentworth about anything you like
and 1 shall soon find out all I want to
know about the mine."
She paused but Wentworth re-
mained silent which indeed the be-
wildered young man realized was tho
only safe thing to do.
"They speak of the talkativeness of
women" .Miss Brewster went on as if
soliloquizing "but it is nothing to thnt
of the men. Once set a man talking

besides ever so much more thnt he
Miss Brewster had abandoned her
very talkative attitude with its sug-
gestion of confidential relations and
had removed her elbows from the ta-
ble sitting now back in her chair gaz-
ing dreamily nt tho dingy window
which let the light in from the dingy
court. She seemed to have forgotten
that Wentworth was there and said
more to herself than to him:
"1 wonder if Kcnyon would tell me
about the mine?"
"Von might ask him."
"No It wouldn't do any good" she
continued gently shaking her head.
"He's one of your bllent men and there
arc so few of them in this world! Per-
haps I had better go fo William Long-
worth himself; he is not suspicious of
And ns she said this she threw n
quick glance nt Wentworth nnd the
unfortunate young man's. face nt once
told her that she had hit the murk.
She bent her brow over the table nnd
laughed with silch evident enjoyment
that Wentworth in spite of his l;elj-
less anger smiled grimly.
Jennie raised her head but the sight
of his perplexed countenance was too
much for her nnd it was some time be-
fore her merriment allowed her to
speak". At last she said:
"Wouldn't you like to take me by the
shoulders and put mo out of the room.
"I'd like to take you by the shoulders
and shake you."
"Ah! that would bo taking a liberty
and could not be permitted. Wo must
lcarepuuishment to the law.you know
although I do think a man should be
allowed to turn un objectionable visit-
or into the street."
"Miss Brewster" cried the young
man earnestly leaning over the table
tovrard her "why don't you abandon
your horrible inquisitorial profession
and put your undoubted taleuts to
tome other use?"
"Wlmt for instance?"
Jennio rested her fair cheek against
her open palm again nnd looked nttha
dingy window There was n long si-
lence between them. Wentworth was
ubsorbed lu wntchlng iicrclcar-cut pro-
file nnd her white throat his breath
quickening as ho feasted his eyes on
"1 hnve nlvvaya got angry" sho said
rt last. In n low voice with the quiver
of n suppressed sigh In it "when other
people have said that to me 1 wonder
why it Is I merely feel hurt nud sad
when you say it" it Is so ensy to say
'oil anything' o easy so easy. You
nre n ninn with the strength and de-
termination of n man yet you Jiavo
met with disappointments nnd obsta-
cles that have required nil your cour-
age to overcome. Every man has and
with most men it is n fight until the
head Is grny nnd the brain weary with
the ceaseless struggle. The world is
utterly merciless; it will trample you
down relentlessly if it can and if your
vigilance relaxes for n moment it win
steal your crust nnd leave you to stnrvt'.
When I think of this incessant sullen
contest with no quarter given or taken.
I shudder and pray that I may die be-
fore I am nt the mercy of the pitiless
world. When I enmo to London I saw
for the first time in my life that hope
less melancholy promenade of the
Bundwlch men human wreckage drift-
ing nlong the edge of the btrcet ns
if they had been cast up there by tho
rushing tide sweeping past them.
They they seemed to me like n tot-
tering procession of the dead and on
their backs was tho announcement of
u play that was making nil London
roar with laughter the awful comedy
nnd tragedy of it! Well I simply
couldn't Btnnd it! I had to run up ti
side street and cry like the little fool
1 was right in broad daylight"
Jennio paused and tried to laugh but
the effort ended in n sound suspiciously
like a sob and she d.ishcd her hand
with quick Impatience across her
eyes from which Wentworth had never
tiikcn his own watching them dim as
the light from the window proved too
strong for them and finally fill as she
censed to speak. Searching ineffectual-
ly about her dress for a handkerchief
which lay on the table beside hor para-
sol unnoticed by either Jennie went
on with borne difficulty:
"Well these poor forlorn creatures
were once men-r-men who had gone
down and if tho world is &o hard on
n man with all his strength nnd re-
sourcefulness think think whnt it is
for a vvomoii to be thrown into this
inhuman human turmoil a woman

her face in her arms which rested on
Wentworth sprang to his feet and
came round to where she sat.
"Jennie" he 'said putting his hand
on her shoulder.
The girl without looking up shook
off the hand that touched her.
"Go back to your place!" she cried
in a smothered voice "Leave me
"Jennie" persisted Wentworth.
The. young woniun rose from her
chair and faced him stepping back a

back and. sit down. I came hero to
talk business; not to make n fool of
myself. It's all your fault nnd I linte

But the young man stood where he
was in spite of the dangerous sparkle
that lit up his visitor's wet eyes. A
frown gathered on his brow.

Tho swift anger that blazed up In lier
iace reddening her cheeks dried the
"How dare you say such a thing to
me?" she cried hotly. "Do you natter
yourself that because 1 enme here to
talk business I have ulso some personal
interest hi you? Surely even your self-
conceit doesn't run bo far as that!"
Wentworth stood silent and Miss
Btewstcr picked up her parasol scat
tering in her haste the other articles
on the floor. If she expected Went
worth to put them on the table again
she was disappointed for although
his eyes were upon her his thoughts
were far away upon tho Atlantic ocean
"I sjiall not btny here to be insulted"
she. cried resentfully bringing Went-
worth's thoughts back with a rush to
Loudon again. "It is intolerable thnt
you should use such an expression to
me. Playing with you indeed!"
"I had no intention of insulting you
"Whnt is it but an insult to use such
u plirafe? It implies that I cither
care for you or "
"And do you?"
"Do I what?"
"Do you care for mo?"
Jennio shook out the lace fringes of
her parasol and binootlied them with
some precision. Her eyes were lient
on wjiat she was dolug.and consequent-
ly they did not meet those of her ques-
tioner. "I care for you ns a friend of course"
she said at last still giving mueli at-
tention to the parasol. "If 1 had not
looked on you as n friend I would not
hnve conic here to consult with jou
"No I suppose not. Well I nm sorry
I used the words that dibplenscd you
and now if you will permit it wo will
go on with the consultation."
"It wasn't a pretty thing to say."
"I'm afraid I'm not good at saying
"You used to be." The jiarakol be-
ing arranged to her liking Mie glanced
up nt him. "Still you said you were
sorry and that's nil a man can say orn
woman either for that's what I said
myself when I enmo in. Now if you
wilt pick up thobc things from the
floor Hunks we will talk about the
Wentworth seated himself in kU
chair again and said:
"Well what is It you wish to know-
about tho mine?"
"But you said you wanted informa-
tion." "What a funny reason .to give I And
hovy a man mUscs ull the tine points
of n conversation! No; just because I
asked for information you might have
known that it was what I really want-
ed." "I'm ufrnid I'm very stupid. I hate
to ask boldly what you did want but
1 would like to know."
"1 want a vote of confidence I told
you I was sorry liecausc of a certain
episode. I wanted to sco if you trust-
ed me nnd I found you didn't. There."
"I think thnt was hardly n fair test.
You sco tho facts did not belong to mo
Miss Bicvvstcr sighed nnd slowly
shook her bend.
"That wouldn't hnve mndo thr lenst

"Oh 1 buy! You couldn't expect o
"Yos I could."
"Whnt merely n friend?"
Miss Brewster nodded.
"Well all I can soy" remnrked Went-
worth with n lough "is that friend-
ship has made greater strides in the
slates Hum it lias In this country."
Bcforo Jennie could reply Hie useful
boy knocked at the door and brought in
u ten tray which ho placed bcforo his
master then silently departed closing
uie uoor noiselessly.
"May 1 offer you a cup of tea?"
"Please. What n curlous.custom this
drinking of ten is in business offices.
I think I shall write an nrtlclc on 'A
Nation of Tea Tipplers.' If I were nn
enemy to England instead of being its
grentest friend I would descend with
my army on tills country between tho
hours of four and five lu the afternoon
nnd so take the imputation unawares
while it was drinking ten. Whnt would
you do if tho enemy enmc down on you
curing sucn n snored national cere.
"I would offer her n cup of ten" re-
plied Wentworth suiting the action to
"Mr. Wentworth" cold the girl arch-
ly "you're Improving. Thnt remark
was distinctly good. Still you must
lemember that I come ns a friend not
as nn enemy. Did you ever rend the
'Babes in the Wood?' It is n most In-
structive but pnthetlo work of fiction.
You remember Hie wicked uncle Burc-
ly. Well you and Mr. Kcnyon remind

cover you with leaves. The leaves to
do any good ought to be checks flutter-
ing down on you but nlast I haven't
any. If negotiable checks only grew
on trees life would not be so difficult."
Miss Brewster sipped her ten pensive-
ly and Wentworth listened to the
musical murmur of her voice whlc'i
had such an entrancing effect on him
that he paid less heed to what she sn 1
than a man should when a lady is speak
ing me tea drinking hnd added n
touch of domesticity to Hie tete-n-teto
that rather went to tho head of th-j
young man. Ho clinched nnd un-
clinched his hand out of sight under
the table and felt tho moisture on bin
palm. He hoped ho would be able to
retain control over himself but the
difficulty of his task almost overcome
him when she now and then appealed
to him with glance or gesture and h-j
felt as if he must cry out: "My girl mv
girl don't do Hint if you expect me to
stay where I nm."
"I see you are not paying the slight-
est attention to what 1 am saying" she
said pushing the cup from her. She
rested her arms on the table leaning
slightly forward and turning her face
full upon him. "I can tell by your
eyes Unit you arc thinking of some-

Here to Wentwortli's astonishment
she gave a rapid and accurate sketch of
the negotiations and arrangements be-

ent position of affairs.
"How do you know nil this?" he
"Never mind tliut nnd you mustn't
ask how I know what I am now going

"Ho has gone to America."
