PICK JEItltAM presented him-
self at the ollice of Carrington
Brothers !d no very sanguine
frnnie of mlml lie still felt
that Boer bullet In his right leg and
his complexion as well ns his nerves
reminded li tin of the enteric which
had brought him near to death's door.
Worst of ull was tho news from Nel-
lerton. Mary Dudley his Mnry had Inher-
ited 20000 from her Uncle Harold
and-aud. if that letter of the rattle-
tongue gossip Miss Brayshaw to his
mother was to be believed Mary was
on the highroad to a title. Sir Tarver
I'.rown was very little other than a
baronet but the attraction of a "lady-
ship" could hardly help tempting even
such a girl as sweet Mary Dudley.
The younger member of the Arm
received Dick with sympathy but no
"You don't look fit for an office desk
Mr. Jerrum oh 1 beg your pardon
Llcutonnaut Jerram isn't It now?" he
said With a slight laugh.
"I was offered a commission but I
did not feci that I could accept itir"
ald Dick. "I want to take up my
work again for various reasons."
Ernest Carrlngtou's eyebrows rose
"I am very sorry Mr. Jerram." he
said "but Just at present there is no
vacancy. We will of course give you
the first chance the very first chance
"Do you really mean It?" ho asked
"My dear fellow you really ore not
fit for olrlce work Just yet. Take a
holiday after your trying labors your
noble and er patriotic self-sacrifice.
I dare say In a few months at the
most we can squeeze you in some-
where though I fear even then we
cannot offer you the same salary you
received in 18!."
With an effort Dick pulled himself
together and stood up like the discip-
lined If damaged soldier he had be-
tome. i "Yori words art' final sir?" he asked.
"Provisional Jerram only provi-
sional. But we can't afford to cheer
you with hopes that may not come to
fruition. Anything we can do in the
way of recommendations. It will give
us the utmost pleasure to do. Of
course you understand that? Good
heavens! It Is the least we could do!"
Dick bowed his head. The smile on
his lips was just a little bitter.
"Quite so" he said. "It Is some-
thing to be grateful for that you are
willing to do the least possible. Good
morning." And then Dick found him-
self in St. Taul's Churchyard and
conscious that the last straw had bwn
piled upon his head.

that his mother's own poor little liv

lie shrugged his shoulders and tot-
tered down Ludgate Hll!. On his
way lie noticed a jeweler' window
with watches and chains and pins and
rings of price beneath tils eyes espe-
cially rings. And the rings reminded
him of what It hurt him most to re-
liiember. He looked at his loft hand with
the plain but solid gold circlet eet
with a tiny diamond and the words
Invisible to his eye but pressing his
f nicer "Forever and forever!"
That was Mary's voucher to him for
her life-long love.
His fingernails closed on his palms
tightly his Jaws locked as If they
meant never again to part and he
drew two or three terrible breaths of
the kind that mark (irises in the life
of a man.
At length he moved again. "Yes
that's what I'll do." he murmured.
'Toor girl! one can't blame her. She
shall marry him with a free conscience
at all events."
Then once again he whispered:
"As for me "
But he did not ever shrug his shoul-
ders this time. His despair was too
profound. It needed no emphasis.
'At the King's Arm Inn of Nellerton
that evening Dick took pen and paper
and wrote the letter to Mary which
was to accompany the returned ring.
It was short and to the point:
"Dear Mary Somehow though I
would like to keep this I can't do It
and so I bring It back to you; nnd you
must think I mean to bo nasty by
milking It como to you on your birth-
day. I quite understand that things
are changed between us. Wishing
you all the happiness life can give
you believe me. sincerely yours al-
.ways RICHARD JERRAM."
"No drivel In that I think." he said
with a pnng of pride when he had
read It and folded It up. The ring was
In a little box and the letter was now
wrapped round the box. The whole
was addressed to Miss Mary Dudley
2 Devonshire Road.
In the darkness he tottered out Dev.
onshlre Road way. He gazed at the
house and the lighted window of
Mary's bedroom gazed and gazed till
he felt silly. He lay restlessly now
wishing wildly now dumbly resigned
to all things. Once It occurred to him
to wonder what the maid of the Inn
meant by smiling like that wben she
gave him his candle and said a gay
"Good-night." But he had far Intenser
stimulants to thought than that and
the damsel soon drifted away from
His most strenuous moments fol-
lowed the realization that he had been
casual enough to leave Mary's packet

But he found the effort quite appal-
lingly severe and gave it up.

all over again. Off and on he woke
to gasv and groan and utter exclama-

have Interpreted those exclamations
aright but he was alone now and had
worse tomes after each bout of them.
For the second time the girl knocked
at bis door.
"Your hot water sir!" shs cried and
set her ear to listen.

The landlord made no bouea about
entering Dick's room when h? too
had rapped to no purpose. IIo gazed
at Dick for a few moments and felt
his blood chill a little at Dick'a furious
cry: "I tell you you are dead Mary

"He's In a fever that's what's the

eagerly. "That I -will sir."

determined to kill two birds with one
"It's maybe a present for Miss Dud-

on her hat carried off Dick's Utile
packet for No. 2 Devonshire Road.
The darkness had passed fron Dick's
brain and having opened his eyes and
seen things as they were though with
an Imperfect grasp of the facts he
whispered the monosyllable.
The quick rustle of a Cress answered
him and the words:
"Yes ray dear boy!"
"You notlier?" tald Dick looking
up at the face that was the best and
truest object In life for hlra.
She clasped his hand a bocy shape
loosely laced with skin.
Suddenly the cloud fell upon him.

"Oh Mary Mary what shall I do

even while his mind was active In
some remoter atmosphere.
"Nothing dear Dick you shall not
do without me as long as we live for
we will be always together." A hand
was laid on his forehead a little satiny
hand with love warm In all its pores.
And Instantly Dick opened his eyes.

A letter of Lord Salisbury's written
when he was Lord Robert Cecil to
Abraham Hayward was sold the other
day In Loudon. In it the future Prime
Minister wrote that "a new review has
been projected of which I am one of
the editors; and knowing how valua-
ble your co-operation has been to the
other reviews I venture to ask you
whether you have the leisure or. If the
leisure the Inclination occasionally to
contribute to this new one. Its main
object Is to supply the liveliness which
has been so painfully lacking lately In

startling peculiarities on the subject of

the way of the new ones." ...
WHAT IS A MODERN NEWSPAPER?
Tha Public Thlnka It I the Community'!
All-Hound Handy Man.
'A guessing contest to answer the
question "What Is a modern news-
paper?" might not seem to be a dim-
cult one at first blush but investigation
would change that conclusion.
Tho newspaper shows the effect of
expansion more than any other branch
of trade or business nnd with the
cheering feature that tho public is al-
ways the beneficiary.
From the Adrian (Mich.) Telegram
comes tho following attempt to de-
ccribe -what a newspaper now Is:
"Tho public is Insistent in Its de-
mands. It expects tho newspaper to
be a pack horse a dray team a ditch
digger a gas Inspector a water tester
a special policeman a detective bu-
reau a dog chaser a sidewalk fixer
a cow finder a thief catcher a busi-
ness maker a city pusher a house
seller a paving inspector a sewer direc-
tor a pocketbook Cuder a lest article
hunter council regulator fraud dis-
coverer panic preventer obituary

In fact if thcro is a single
thing of Importance1 to human life and
huaiaa happiness that doesu't go
through the newspaper It baa never yet
been discovered. It touches every fea-
ture of human endeavor frou tha cradle
to the grave. It smiles with those who
smllo and weeps with those who
noura. It Is everywhere all tho time
the nest busy the most useful of all
the public agencies. It makes mis-
takes. All human agencies da. Some-
times It Is dishonest. But it stands
out so In the glaro cf the arc light of
publicity that It can tr.t half succeed
if dishonest and then only for a brief
A Quu of Cliance.
Mackeral fishing has always been a
game of chance more so than any ether
branch of the fisheries. Immense for-
tunes have been made In good years
and large sums lost !:v unsuccessful
seasons for It takes considerable
money to fit cut a fleet of eeiucrs.
Some of the high line vessels have
divided among tb? crews as much as
$1000 a man for six months' work.
Mackerel fishing la now dons In
three ways: with a big purse seine
which Is the method cf the larger ves-
sels; with a drag or gill net and In
pounds and traps which are built out
from tlx? shore of brush or twine.
The old way of catching mackerel
was by hook and line. Large quanti-
ties of wash bait herring nnd clams
chopped fine were used and sometimes
as many as four or five barrels of this
bait were thrown over from a single
vessel In a day. It was used to attract
the fish and I he old timers think If a
return to the old methods were made
the mackerel would come to those
shores in as large numbers as they
did years ago.
In those days there were more ves-
sels employed than at present. At one
time. Just before a heavy northeaster
000 fishermen were counted passing
in by Portland Head at the entrance
of Portland harbor to escape the storm.
The vessels fished In fleets and It
often happened that several hundred
sail of fishermen would be seen In a
very small area. Collisions were fre-
quent and whenever two vessels came
together there was sure to be a fight
between the crews. New York Sun.

Mr. Marconi unlike many of his
scientific brethren has a sense of hu-
mor says the London Express. He
said that wireless telegraphy was as
old as the world. When first an abor-
iginal Indian lit a fire on an aboriginal
hill to signal to some other aboriginal
Indian some miles away then the prin-
ciple of wireless telegraphy was in-
itiated. In a recent lecture Mr. Marconi re-
ferring to the fact that he can send
messages so much more easily by night
than by day said that he hoped that
no one but those Interested In cable

The Passing of
-She Athletic Girl
y Bella M. Sherman
TTOTroTTtniE dllT ot the athletic girl is over. I can hear my golf friend
tTUUUUtJ say "What nonsense!" But it is not nonsense. Even the most
WJJnpU sceptical if they will take the trouble to go through the shops or
SS I EH turn the leaves of the fashion magazines will soon become
m 1 fM convinced.
tWOTTCTo 'H' K'r' w'10' n 'l(r corrlmou"tKnse shoes and microbe-proof
UtfiTCJUtJ skirt has held the centre of the stage so long to the delight
of the physical culturist and dress reformer Is fading Into the flies and a
creature of laces and chiffons ruflles and furbelows Is advancing to the
The only wonder Is that the athletic; girl lasted as long as she did. She.
stood her ground bravely In spite of the powerful opposition of the shop-
keeper and the prospective husband. Weary of the struggle she now grace-
fully retires like a politic woman conscious of yet not acknowledging her
defeat and gives place to the summer girl of 1902.
The girl we have with us this year is the autipodej of her predecessor.
To be ia the fashion to wear the costumes designed for' this season no girl
ran afford to be an athlete. It was all very well when a short skirt and
tailor made shirt waist 1n the evening at the summer resort was the hall-
mark cf smartness for a girl to have a healthy coat of tan on face throat
and firearms; but to-dny when Dame Fashion who is a tyrannical jade at
her best steps in and commands the sheerest of laces the 'most diaphanous
of materials tau cr sunburn is an Impossibility.
AVhat need had the merchant to stock his shops with all the fripperies
supposed to be so dear to the feminine heart If these same dear girls never
gave the tempting display a second glance? The athletic fad was not good
for trade. The woman's tailor tsklrtmakcr nnd shoemaker were the only
ones benefited. In the course of events tho merchant was sure to rebel.
Then the modiste had a cause for grievance. Where was her living to
come from if this athletic craze continued? Of what use was it to design
"dreams' for acn-appreeiative customers? The "new woman" was her bug-
bear and she was driven to cMstraction.
Tho whole army of purveyors to women. In PaTis London and Berlin
were in despair. They would be bankrupt if the girl of the period continued
to be satisfied wita tweed skirts heavy shoes and shirt waists. Something
must be done.
To the relief of the shopkeeper cane the "Du Barry" and "Dolly Varden"
craze. No sooner had these two plays caught popular fancy than the shops
were filled with Du Barry scarfs and hats and Dolly Varden foulards and
organdies. Sunburn and tan short skirts and heavy shoes lost their attrac-
tions nnd the girls lost their hearts to the frivolities (as far as gowning was
concerned) of these two stage heroines.
Of course no girl could dress as Du Barry or Dolly Varden were sht a
fright with freckles and sunburn. So after many visits to the complexion
doctors the twentieth century summer girl has emerged from her chrysalis
a veritable butterfly.
Nothing so completely shows the tread cf fashion as the radical changes
whlel; have taken place in shoes and shirt waists. From the low common-
sense heel and round toe shoe we have returned to the pointed toe and
Loui3 XV. heel. Fancy has run riot in the fashion of heels. This return
to the unhealthy Louis XV heel is to tie regretted by people of common-
sense.' Even the show windows cf tho haberdasher shops that cater to women
display a most elaborate collection of the once severely made shirt waist.
These bodices are works of art made as they are of the sheerest lawns and
organdies and profusely trimmed with fine laces. Perhaps nothing so indi-
cates the decline of the athletic fad as this new departure in shirt waists.
The athletic girl Is not the creature of mystery and romance that her
sister of chiffons and ruOes ribbons and laces Is. She would be out of
place on a veranda lying in a hammock of a summer's evening or out In a
rowboat on the lake nnder the moon's rays and therefore to-day under the
new regime she Is relegated to the shelf and la a short time will be for-
gotten. A wail has been sent np from landlords of summer hotels that they
could get no men. This dearth was blamed on the athletic girl. It was said
that there was nothing to attract a man to a summer hotel where there
were no pretty girls to fall in love with. A man is never so happ- as when
he is miserably in love. The athletic girl had no time for love-making there-
fore thero was no attraction for the men. Collier's Weekly.
The Real Hobo: Whet He Is
and How He Lives
Charles Ely Adams.
4f wo facts about the hobo may serve to dispel a'ular error.
First he is within certain bounds a patron & literature.
x nere are very many cicvpuima iu ui wmci-'-j.
Second he spends a very respectable amount of his time in the
use of water soap and towels. Aside from the question of
special fitness a man is the creature of his opportunities and
this UuLh in its scope runs to the last tar reaches 01 tiODo-uom. xiie uen
in this realm when in the harness obtains but.a slight acquaintance with leis-
ure. He rises early and as he must work cn aa average ten hours a day
he must have more than eight hours' sleep. It is true that even this schedule
leaves him a few hours to himself on working days; but the fact remains that
through fatigue and lack of facilities for the appointments of a railroad camp
are few and extremely rough he Is unable to utilize his spare time to the best
advantage. After supper most of the men retire to the bunk tents to lie on
their beds and BmcUe and talk. Some play cards; others disposed to be exclu-
sive arrange their blankets for a comfortable reclining position and read books
and belated newspapers by the flickering light cf a candle fastened at the
head of the bunk. Sunday of course is tae hobo's day of freedom and he
appropriates the time to avocations of his own inclination. He bathes shaves
oils his shoes boils his underclothes sews cn buttons takes stitches where
needed gossips write letters to absent "pardners" and reads.
As may be supposed trashy novels predominate among the books of the
hobo's selection. However as a counterbalance to themes which are altogethet
trivial and volatile he relishes the polemics of the famous agnostics being es-
pecially affected by their sensationalism and eloquence. On his tramps from
camp to camp the hobo addicted to reading burdens himself with a volume or
two which when he has finished he exchanges with fellow-travelers of similar
propensity. A box of old magazines provided by one contractor for the use of
his employes proved to be greatly appreciated by the mm. the demand for the
periodicals being quite extensive and constant. The amount of general infor-
mation thus acquired by the reading hobo would surprise those gentle person-
ages of glorious opportunities and cultivation who look upon him as an out-
landish clodlike piece of humanity. The existence of a world more pclite than
he has ever seen the developments of popular science inventions and events
of national importance the recurring crises In European diplomacy all these
chiefly through the medium of the newspapers ho is aware cf and can discuss
with a readiness which would tlo credit to an even more alert mind.

HAT the marked differences In children in classes and In
teachers are not properly provided for either In the amount
and character of the work required or In the time to be spent
upon the work. Is readily seen when we consider the usual
method cf gradiug and promoting. The course of study for
the graded school Is divided arbitrarily into a number ot
grades generally a year apart and the work for each grade Is laid out for the
bright the slow or the average.
Many schools grade the work for the bright. In this case all the rest are
dragged over far more work than they can understand. Therefore many soon
become discouraged and drop out of school.
Though not generally acknowledged yet. In reality the courses of study In
most schools arc graded for the slower pupils. This is certainly an Injustice
to the large majority of pupils who can and should go forward more rapidly.
Not only Is the progress of all kept down to the pace of the slower ones but
wirse than this the majority of the pupils are drilled Into habits of luatteution
and Idleness. So long has this continued that many teachers have come to be-
lieve that pupils do not differ materially In their ability to cover the course.
However there are thousands of earnest teachers who reallzo the great injury
done to the pupils by such a method of stifling talent.
But by far the largest nunibef of schools are supposed to be graded for the
"average pupil." At first sight this looks reasonable. But In truth can any.
thing be more absurd than the Idea of neglecting the ever-present Individual
pupil of flesh and blood of soul and life and Infinite possibilities. In the attempt
to reach all by shaping the work for the mythical "average pupilj'
FIRST AMERICAN PATENT. .
Joaeph Jonka Who Waa ltenawned For
Hla Inventive Genlua.
To an English machinist Joseph)
Jenks belongs the honor of having;
secured the lirst American patent. A!
blacksmith In Hammersmith England
in 1043 be was a man of great renown
says tho Scientific American by reason
of his' Inventive skill In the art ot
making machines. Emigrating to the
Colony cf Massachusetts in the fall of
1043 about the same time that Rev.
John Harvard arrived he settled In
Lynn. This man Jenks cut the dies
for the coining of the old colonial "pino
tree" money. He also invented the
first apparatus for extinguishing fires
a kind of primitive hand-pump on
wheels. His application for a patent
on a water-power device for mills
was granted by the colonial Court
aud Is probably the first patent on
record In America. The Court had
jurisdiction over the Massachusetts
Bay Colony embracing nearly all oC
New England at that time. The limit
of the monopoly was fourteen years
and the Court retained not only power
to forbid exportation but also power
to prevent exorbitant charges made
upon the public. The patent was ls
sued in this form:
"At a general Courte at. Boston tha

Making Foatal Cards.
The manufacture of postal cards Is
an interesting process. From the paper
mill millions of sheets 30x50 Inches la
size are brought to the pressroom and
printed upon presses having a capacity
of 1200 impressions per hour. The
sheets each containing ninety cards
makes the capacity of the presses 100-
000 an hour or 1000000 a day. Tha
new forms will however contain 110
plates and the presses which are to
be put uj in Maine will have a greater
hourly capacity; hence the dally output
can be Increased. The slitter which
cuts the cards Into strips of ten cards
each is operated by one man. After
the large cards are slitted into strips of
ten cards each they are taken to the
cutting machines which are operated
by women. Here they are fed through
the cutting machines three strips at a
time for eight times and then one
strip making in all twenty-five cards
which are dropped in bundles and
banded by two girls who occupy seats
near the machines. Twenty of these
packages of twenty-five "cards ara
placed in a pasteboard box; these boxes
next go to three young men whosa
duty it is to put them in wootit-n boxes;
the cards are stored away in the larga
fireproof vault to await shipment to
the various postofflces.
Birila Were Quite Fearleai.
When the white man first visited
some of the island of tho Southern
Hemisphere he found that many of
the animals especially the birds wer
absolutely fearless. Penguins albat-
rosses and others paid no attention to
the men as they walked along and
when It was desired to photograph a
nest and eggs it was frequently neces-
sary to push the nesting albatross from
the nest the bird merely pecking at
the Intruder. Darwin describes doves
at one Island he visited as apparently
unable to comprehend that man was an
enemy. The birds could be shoved
from the limbs before they moved and
even attempted to alight upon tho
heads of the men. In Kerguelen Land
the birds In some of the extensive
rookeries refused to move ns the men
strode along holding their gTouud and
pecking so violently at the invaders
that they were forced to beat a retreat.
These birds bad never seen a man be-
