Harry Needles met Blm Kelso on
the road next day, when he was going
down to see If there whs any mail.
She was on her pony. He was In Ills

ground striped Into large cheeks.
"You look like a walking checker-
board.” suhl she.
"This—this Is my new suit,” Harry
answered, looking down nt it.
"It’s a tiresome suit." said she im-
patiently. ‘Tve been playing checkers

her. “They’d laugh at me. They
wouldn’t know how I feel."
"1 won’t say anything." she an-
swered. “I reckon I ought to tell you
that T don’t love you—not so much as
I did, anyway—not near so much,
only love you just a wee hit now."
Harry’s face fell.
"Do you—love—some other

"Is it that rich feller from Nt.

She nodded and then whispered:
“Don’t you tell.”
The boy’s lip* trembled when he an-
swered. “I won’t tell. But 1 don t
see how you can do It."
"He drinks, lie Isn’t respectable.”
"That’s a lie,” she answered quick-
ly. "I don’t care what you say

stopped. For a minute that hoy
thought hls apple was the biggest
thing In the world. We’re (ill a good
deal like Idin. We keep dropping our
apples and calling for the boat to stop.
Soon we find out that there are many
apples In the world as good as that
one. You have all come to a stretch of
Imd water up at your house. The folks
have been siek. They’re a little lone

It any harder by crying over a lost ap-

apple will float along down into the

keep going ahead."
This hit of fatherly counsel was it

“I’ve got a book here that I want
you to read." Abe went on. "It Is the

and read it carefully and then bring it

You may he a Henry Clay yourself by

When Harry got home he found

and Betsey pin: lug by the bed. Sum-
son had gone to the woods to split
"Any mail?" Sarah asked.
"No mull,” he answered.
Sarah went to the window uml stood
for some minutes looking out at the
plain. Its sere grasses, protruding out
of the snow, hissed and bent In the
wind. In its cheerless winter colors
it was a dreary thing to see.
“How 1 long for home!” she ex-
claimed, us she resumed her sewing by

"We are nil very fond of you," she ■
said, as she bent to her task.
Then the l»oy told her the history of

the razor omitted from it.
“Well, Marry, if she’s such a fool,
you’re lucky to have found it out so

"And one—the hook of common

went on. "Since 1 came to this coun-
try 1 have learned to beware of the
one book man. There ure more living
men In America than In any land I
have seen. The man who reads one

Blanca soon became celebrated as
the llovver of the Florence slums. One
she was sitting at the window
when Francesco de Medici chanced hy.
He saw her lovely face and the next
day she was summoned to court.
Francesco was the son of the grand
duke, and soon her slave. She had
sickened of the hank clerk husband

child was borrowed und presented to
Francesco by Bianca us hls own.
Then, to conceal her plot, the real
mother was slain. A waiting woman
who knew of it was carried to a
mountain pass and left there for dead.
But adherents of Francesco’s brother
found this woman and heard her story
before she died. The brother was a
cardinal and Jeulous of Bianca’s rise
to power. In some way she learned
that the cardinal knew her secret, and
boldly confessed It to the grand duke.
Francesco, infatuated, forgave her

Florence a year, then returned In
greater fnvor than before. And soon
the duchess died, her young son fol-
lowing her shortly afterward. There
were hints of poison at Bianca’s in-
stigation. However that may have
been, the duke married her within
two months. The child first given to
Francesco as an heir was legitimatized
and it appeared that an unknown
foundling would some day rule
Florence. But Bianca still had one
implacable enemy, the Cardinal de
Medici. In an effort to make friends
she invited him to a great feast and
merry-making. Just what happened

say that Bianca had prepared

that he substituted it for another tart,

THE GIRL WHO WON AND RULED
HEAR a great deal today
about the iniquitous vampire.
It Is one of the curious sidelights
of history thut the vampire lias helped
to shape the destinies of the greatest
men and empires. And certainly none
of the famous women who might
answer to thut description had a
stranger beginning than a little girl
born at Paris In 1721. Her supposed
father wus Francois Poisson, an ollicer
in the household of the Duke of
Orleuns. But common report held
thut her real father wus a great
financier of the time, who undertook
to direct the girl’s education. It Is
led to him that the world had been
ed. On his way to the village he

“I’d Like to Read My Declaration to
Samson's diary briefly describes this
appeal as follows:
• He said that lie wanted to win ‘be
confidence and esteem of hls fellow
citizens. This he hoped to accomplish
by doing something which would make
him worthy of tt. He had been think-
ing of the county. A railroad would
do more for it than anything else, hut
a railroad would be too costly. The
Improvement of the Sangamon river
was the next best thing. He favored
a usury law and said, in view of ihe
talk lie had Just heard, he was going
I to fa’-or the Improvement and build-
| ing of schools, so that every one could
] learn how to read, at least, and learn
too.” . .

He did not go to the Spelling school.
Abe came at seven and said that he
and Harry would have to walk to
Springfield that night and get their
equipment and take the stage In the
morning. Abe said if they started
right away they could g“t to the Globe

excitement Harry forgot the spelling

ognized In her a spark of genius and

some day she might be the king s
At the nge of twenty this girl was
married to a nephew of her protector
and became the belle of the wealth-
iest circles In Paris business lifo.
But thut was a long way from the
court, which she never entered until
chance threw her lu the way of Louis
XV, ut a public ball. He was capti-
vated and not long afterward tlie
young bride cast aside her husband
for a doubtful position at Versailles.
Louis bought her an estate und from
this she took the name hy which she
became famous—the Duchess de
Pompadour was a woman of un-
doubted genius. She paid court to
the literary leaders of her time,
notably Voltaire, and soon became a
power in the realm. This power she
extended by every possible means,
corresponding regularly with gen-
erals in the Held, dabbling In affairs
of state, and finally becoming the un-
crowned queen of France.
* For years French policy had been
to oppose Austria by alliances with
the German states. Because Fred-
erick the Great wrote scurrilous
verses about Pompadour she swore
to be avenged, and when Maria
Theresa of Austria wrote her a
friendly letter, she upset France’s
national policy overnight, forming an
alliance with Austria. Tills brought
on the disastrous Seven Year’s war

FROM TAVERN MAID TO EMPRESS.
pa ICTURE to yourself a tenth cen-
l tury wineshop in Constantinople,
then called Byzantium. Imagine that
the door Is fiung open and a party of
gav blades enter. They are led by
Romanes, son of the emperor. They
drink, and Romanus admires the tav-
ern keeper's daughter.
In 9o6 this same girl, Theophano,
was married to Romanus, his imperial
father being an Indulgent man who ap-
parently cared little whom his son wed.
But the mother and five sisters of
; Romanus scorned the tavern maid. In

! poison administered through the
i agency of his son and Theophano,

Romanus was a profligate and Theo-
phano evidently suspected that she
might he put aside. So she cast her
eyes upon Nicephoros Fhoeas the
greatest soldier of his time and a

O “she will bring a curse upon any
man who loves her.”
History knows the beautiful woman
of whom he spoke as Lola Montez,
but she was christened Elizabeth, the
daughter of an Irish woman and Lord
Byron, by the left hand. Afterward
tlie mother married and went to In-
dia with her soldier husband. When
the girl was sixteen, her mother came
back to England for a time, and the
y'-ung mistress proceeded to run
away, marrying a soldier and depart-
ing for India.
Elizabeth left India, stopped in
Spain, and changed her name to Lola
Montez. She studied dancing and de-
termined to storm London. Her ap-
pearance In 1843 was heralded as a
great event, but she could not dance.
Her failure brought hisses, and she re-

soon made him forget hls hair shirt,
and the two conspired together. Ro-
manus died in 963. at the age of twen-
ty-four, and the historians hint that
his wife poisoned him. Then she had
1’hocas proclaimed emperor, and a sec-
ond time became empress of Byzun-
This brought on a contest with
quarter of eight. Com# la th* lav- * —* vltbaaa,
the church, which refused to sanction
the marriage. But the vampire was
a woman of wit ns well us seduction,
nnd she helped her new imperial hus-
band to maintain himself. I’hocas won
notable victories ngainst the Saracens
and greatly extended the power of By-
zantium. Then he seems to hnve ex-
perienced a turn of feeling and went
hack to hls hairy shirt. In any event
Theophano tired of him and looked
about for new conquests. She cast her
favor upon Zlralskes. nephew of the
emperor, und a gallant younj soldier.
Once more her conspiracy took shape,
and Phoeas was assassinated. Then
I the church demanded that Zlmlskes
drive Theophnno forth from the palace
i before hls self-proclaimed accession to
I (b* purple would b* recognli*d. To
i |b* consternation of Theophano. he
promptly agreed and she was bundled

So Lola came to Paris, under another
name, and started to dance. Once
more hisses greeted tier. It was tlie
last straw. She flew into a fury, tore
off her slippers and garters, and threw
them at the audience.
Paris had been won. Lola, dropping
her other name, became the fashion
of the day. An editor was killed in
a duel about her, and Dumas pro-
nounced the line quoted above, which
drove her from tlie capital. She next
turned up in Munich and enslaved old
King Ludwig. Then folly took hold
of her. She started to rule the state
and soon got Into water so deep that
she almost lost her life. A moti sur-
rounded her palace and angrily de-
manded that she come out. Lola

had to flee, and Ludwig lost hls throoe.
