MY HAl!F SISTER
JVA:-V By ELTON HARRIS .\X\
Week after week dragged on In
weary sameness. No one ever came
to call, sometimes there was hardly
a servant in the house. Madame grew
daily more silent and morose, and
while she absolutely adored the
ground her little French dandy of a
son stepped upon, they often had fierce
quarrels in private.
Maduine's only amusement was reek-
less driving, and the sight of the mail
phaeton with its fiery chestnuts tear-
ing about the country, and madame,
sitting square and grim in the driving
seat, grew a familiar one round Rev-
erton. Henri generally declined to ac-
company her; he had not nerve to
stand It, nor had Kate; but Mollie oft-
en went, for she rather enjoyed it, and
it bad the great advantage of taking
her out of Henri's society for a time.
"It is all very well!" exclaimed Reg-
gie half angrily. "Let her break her
own neck If it pleases her, but she has
no business to break yours!"
It was a glorious spring afternoon,
bright sunshine was flooding the quaint
old Reverton High street, and the
phaeton had no sooner drawn up with
a clatter before tho post office, and
madame gone In, than Mr. Anstruth-
er's tall, soldiery form appeared at
the Conservative club doorway oppo-
site, and he lost no time in coming
round to Mollie's side. Tho groom
was at the excited horses' heads, so
they could talk unrestrainedly, and as
Reggie's brown face was upturned to
Mollie's, and his blue eyes sought hers,
they were certainly making the most
of their chance.
**I don't mind; she drives very
well," she replied. "You never saw
«uch strong hands as she has!"
"She drives as if she were pos-
sessed!" ho retorted. "I don't like—
well, it is not f\t for you to be whirled
round the country like a tornado."
"It is better than stopping at home,"
Mollie answered, laughing. "You see,
there is no room for Henri."
"Henri!" said Mr. Anstruther, with
a Blight grimace. "One-rarely sees
you nowadays without that detestable
little tailor's block. There, Mollie, I
beg your pardon; you may liko him,
but you are not going to throw over
your old friends for your new, aro
you? The mater and Joyce declare
that they believe you are not allowed
to come to see them. Tell me, Is It
"I am afraid it Is, Reggie," was the
response, given dolefully. "Please beg
them not to think me ungrateful. It
is not very nice at Chalfont; but I shall
do the best."
"It is a burning shame!" he burst
out botly. "What right have they to
make you unhappy? I should like to
wring their necks."
"Don't be bloodthirsty"— and she
laughed. "And I do not intend to
be unhappy, especially If you will ex-
plau to Mrs. Anstruther-—"
"All right,*' replied Regglo prompt-
ly; then persuasively: "Mollie, don't
you think that it Is very selfish of you
to wear those violets, when you seo
that I have none?"
"I had not thought of It In that
light," she said demurely. "Poor lit-
tle Kate gathered them for me."
"8uppose you sec how they look In
"Well, I don't wish to be selfish,"
she said, unfastening them, and loan-
ing down to put them In his out-
Reggie caught the hand, flowers and
all, and, as he looked up Into those
beautiful soft groy eyes that had
played such havoc with his heart, he
eaid, with quickening breath:
"Look here, Mollie, I hate to think
of you miserable; it is more than I—
than any fellow can stand. Oh,
bother! here she comes! 1 can see
her feathers bobbing through the door.
When shall I see you again?"
"Impossible to say, for madame and '
Henri seem to have taken a disllko to
—everyone. But don't worry, I am not
miserable; at least, not very; tell
"And Henri—do you like him? Is he
a pretty good sort?" he demanded
But madame had caught sight of a
pair of broad shoulders, a closely-
cropped sunny head, and ero Mollie
could reply she had swept out, her |
glance falling with equal disfavor on i
Reggie fastening tho violets in his but- j
tonhole, and Mollie's smiling faco.
"You are making a long stay in Rev- |
ertou this time, Mr. Anstruther," she
said blandly, as aho gathered up the
"Yes, there- is no place like home, '
and I have heaps of friends here!" he |
answered pleasuutly, raining his hat. I
"By the way, Madame Dubois, I hope
the rumor I beard at the club this aft -
eruoon is true—that tho police have
aoim> important oluo respecting poor
Mr. Barlowe's assailant?"
For a moment mndamo turned her
eyes with a quick, wild g'ance on him.
reminding Mollio somehow of a savaga
animal caught in a trap; but the next
instant she had recovered herself with |
a determined effort, and answered
"This Is news to me, indeed, for I
have heard no such thing. How is it
wo have not been told—we, who havo
the lv *t right to know: wo. who have
longed aud looked for the truth to be
found out all this weary year? No, I
cannot believe it; I fear to hope!
Look, I am quite overcome at tho
thought! Toll me all you know!" |
She was overcome. Sho had worked
liersalf up as she proceeded, yet the
girl at her side felt that the reason she
gave was not the true one, and ngain
It occurred to her that madame knew
more than she had over told; yet she
night be inisjudglt.f her. Perhaps sha
.bad cared for Ms. Sarlowe with nomi- j
thing of the fierce tenderness she
showed for Henri!
But she had little time to think.
Madame ascertained all Reggie knew,
and chatted a few minute* with self-
possession; but directly she had
turned the horses' heads and they were
leaving Reverton behind, her fare
grew black as a thunder-cloud, her lips
wore pressed together in n thin line,
and her eyes, burning with a somber
fire, glanced over the horses' heads un-
seeingly as 6he urged them on.
Never did Mollie forget that drive!
How much faster did she meau to go?
she thought, In real terror. Sho was a
brave girl, with nerves well under con-
trol; but it was mad—mad to tear
along like this. She was absolutely
obliged to hold on tight as they swayed
from side to side; while, as they
shaved past a heavy wagon and swept
round a corner, she saw that the groom
at the back was standing up In his
seat watching the road anxiously, his
face chalky and white.
She tried to remonstrate once or
twice, so did the ifian; but madame
only answered Impatiently, and, if
possible, went faster, and it seemed a
Providence indeed that the roads were
quiet that afternoon. Many times
Mollie glanced up at the set face besidt
her, lighted by a fierce look of exulta-
tion, as trees and hedges vanished
irom sight almost before seen, and the
wind blew cold on their faces. Was
sho trying to drive away from her own
thoughts, flying where no man pur-
Mollie could scarcely believe her own
good fortune when she once more
alighted at the hall door of Chalfont,
safe and sound. Kate came running to
meet them, and as madame caught
sight of her It evidently recalled some-
thing to her mind, for she paused and
turned to Mollie with a frown.
"You seemed to be talking very
earnestly with that young Anstruth-
er," she said abruptly. "What was it
"Nothing that would Interest yon
madame," she answered politely.
"I am your guardian, and Insist upon
knowing." Then, as Mollie's frank
face was turned upon her, madame
either remembered the old proverb
about taking a horse to the water, but
falling to make him drink; or that the
L'Estrange were a family of soldiers,
and that the fighting spirit was flash-
ing resentfully from those gray eyes
now, for she added hastily: "I know
the world; you do not; and I forbid
you to give flowers to gentlemen. Yes,
Kate, my precious one, yon should give
your violets to auntie, not to your half-
sister, who did not value them." And
she swept away in quest of her son.
"They were hers, to do as she
pleased with," the child called aftor
her sulkily, as she hung round Mollie,
and made grimaces after her retreat-
ing relative. "You see, Mollie, you
ought to have given them to Henri,
who is so good, so adorable, so
"Hush! hush, Kate!" said the elder
girl quickly. Angry as she was she
would not encourage the child against
her aunt, and she walked'to the door
and stood looking out into the sun-
shine with misty yes. "Love thine
enemies," she thought. "Overcpme
evil with good." Oh, It was really too
hard; she could not try.
The groom's voice speaking to the
gardener, who was bedding out tl e
tulips In the borders, here came wafted
"Tomorrow I gives notice. Yes, I
lose my place, sure enough; but if I
sticks it, who would look to the missus
and kids when I Io3o my life? See
them 'orses all lathered up? Several
times I thought we were done. We
were bound to go, and the young lady,
she sat as still—well, I never see her
equal for pluck—and the wheels
Qod had been very good to her, and
brought her safely through danger,
thought ^lollle remorsefully, and yet
she had just been grumbling! Then
she wondered what Reggie would havo
felt had they been killed; and then she
saw Kate's sharp, hazel eyes watch-
ing her intently, so sho took her hand
and raced round the garden until they
came to tho swing, splendid with new
"Why, Kate, how is this?" she cried.
"I thought It would be nice to usa
the swing our mother had put up,"
muttered she ungraciously.
And when Mollie pulled her down
on the seat by her side and kissed her
thin cheek, sho blushed quite guiltily,
as if detected in some crime!
Dinner was very late that day. for
Henri did not return home from a
visit to the police station until long
after the usual hour, and then Mollie
heard him tell his mother that the
rumor must have originated through
some tramp being taken up with sus-
picious articles In his possession; but
otherwise the inspector had no further
clue to the perpetrator of the crime.
It was a wann night, almost sultry,
and Molile opened tho long French
windows and went out onto the pan-
tiles, leaving them alone, though
Henri's high tones sneering at the
Kngllsh police, and at madame for be-
lieving all she beard, reached her for
How soft and fresh the air felt; how
high above her head the myriads of
stars were twinkling In the vast
vaults of heaven! There was a whls-
por of coming summer In the little
breeze that just lifted the curls on her
brow, speaking of the primroses that
were blooming down by the stream,
the violets in the shady woods. The
roof covering the pantiles was sup-
ported by Iron pillars, and the scene
was the same as from her bedroom
window, which was Inst above. Bvt I
Mollis never tired of It, and was sta 4- i
ing in dreamy thought, when a voloe
close to her startled her.
"Ah! mademoiselle. I have fou«d
ytu at last. I have been looking for
you everywhere!" said Henri briskly,
closing the glass doors. "You enjoy
the lovely night—yes?"
"Anyone would, monsieur," Mollie ,
replied, adding mischievously: "Sure-
ly It makes you think of Paris—the |
lights, music, dancing, and all that |
kind of thing—does it not?"
"You are laughing at me, medemol-
selle," he said, with a very genuine 1
sigh as the vision rose before him. j
"But tell me. would you not like to j
go there, see all theso things—are yon
not tired of being here?"
"Oh, no. Why, when I was In Oor- '
many I was Just longing to bo home
to watch the flowers come out, to
ramble in the woods."
Henri shrugged his shoulders and
glanced down at his dainty boots.
"Yet it is very unpleasant for you," i
he argued. "My mother Is peculiar.
She has never recovered from the shock j
of her brother's sudden death. Two j
years with her would appal me, were
I a girl. And had I tho chance of
going to beautiful Paris, having a
home of my own, a husband devoted
to me, I should take it, would not
"No!" said Mollis quickly, suppreee-
ing a gasp of dismay. "Beeides, what
good would they be to me if I were
not devoted, too. I am going in"—and
she moved to the window.
"Stay, do not be so cruel!" and he
stepped in front of her. "You know I
love, adore you. Only say, 'Henri, I
return your ardent affection, and will
be yours!' and my life will bo spent
in making you happy."
"But I don't—I never could!" ho
cried, not waiting to choose her words
In her hurry. "Nor do you love me,
Henri, so let us say no more about it."
"I tell you I do!" protested he sul-
lenly. "Why do you doubt me? Con-
sent, and I will carry you to my gay
Paris and teach you to love!" And he
came nearer and laid a hand on her
Instinctively she shrank back. His
face, satiow and ennning, was too near
to be pleasant; his black eyes were
fixed, with an expression of assured
triumph, on hers. Clearly to be read
In them was the conviction that he,
Henri Dubois, was hardly likely to
be refused, that no girl could resist
when he pleaded. And yet there was
a certain admiration there too, whkh
she had felt and ha«.ed for the lasf

MODERN CHURCH MUSIC.
,Tbc Rigor* of Bigotry Soft*a I'n.let
Within a hundred years the meth-
ods of church administration and work
have changed materially. It has not
been a change involving catastrophe,
but one of growth. Consider the single
item of church music. Wellnlgh the
distance of a diameter lies between
the church music of the beginning and
tho end of the century. Recall the dis-
mal hymns, lined out to more dismal
tunes, and the dreary fugues, as dull
and involved as an Indian dance. Our
fathers did not rise up ou a certain
day and say, "Henceforth we are done
with them!" But as the musical cul-
tivation of the people advanced,
church music perforce shared in the
general movement. It is Badly true
that bigotry has succeeded In holding
the church pretty steadily to the roar
of the advancing column, but no in-
stitution can live wholly outside Its
own generation. The bigotry which
has piously shut tho best music out ot
the church is a survival of that
asceticism which nipped, like a killing
frost, everything vernal in the religi-
ous life. But as the rigors of bigotry
have softened In the growing warmth
of general enlightenment, and the love
and culture of music nave steadily ad-
vanced, the church has quietly drop-
ped Its old methods, and has uncon-
sciously taken on tho new, until to-
day It may be truthfully said that the
best music of the world Is laid under
tribute for church services. Even the
wicked music of the heels Is sometimes
so judiciously "slowed up," and sub-
dued in color, and punctured with
solemn pauses, that staid deacons de-
corously, Innocently pace to their
pews to strains from an opera.—Har-

Meadville, Pa.. Nov. 12— (Special)—
The Loyalty of the Members of tho
Brotherhood of J.*)<;omoUve Engineers
Is proverbial. A circumstance occur-
red in this city some days ago, which
emphasizes this feeling.
Frank J. Zeller, is Chief of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Eng neers
No. 143. He is extremely popular
among his fellow railway men, and
one of the beet known Engineers run-
ning out of Meadville. When the an-
nouncement was made a short time
ago that Frank was pretty sick, it
caused a great deal of regret among
the boys. Soon he was missed from
his engine, having had to "lay off"
on account of his back. A brother of
the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi-
neers, who had been ill with similar
symptoms, some time before, and who
had been pulled through, called to see
Mr. Zeller, and in a brotherly way,
took with him a box of D^dd's Kidney
Pills, the Remedy which had cured
him. He advised Mr. Zeller to try
them, with the result that after seven
boxes had been used, he was entirely
well, and able to work.
In an Interview Mr. Zeller states:
"I had suffered for four years with
this affliction, being often kept awake
at night with pains, and at times un-
able to work. I tried several of the
advertised remedies, and found that
they did me no earthly good. Finally,
a member of our Order, who had been
cured of Kidney Disease by Dodd's
Kidney Pills brought me a box, and
I asked me to try them. I had little
faith in them, but as a drowning man
grasps at a straw to help him. so I
took the Pills. I used seven boxes,
< and am today as well and strong a
man as there is In Pennsylvania.''
Naturally, Mr. Zeller feels very
grateful, and his complete recovery
has delighted his many friends, and
none more than the good Brother, who
feels that he instrumental in sav-
ing the life of the Chief.
