If Elizabeth did not indulge In hay
fever every year and consequently
have to be very careful about breath-
ing where there is vegetation it would
never have happened; or, rattier, we
would not have been mixed up with it.
_ I don't know after all whether tt was
not Gabrielle's gold beads that wero
to blame Just as much as Elizabeth's
hay fever; for if the string had not
broken everything would have been
Gabrieile and Elizabeth are friends.
They know each other's inmost
thoughts, and their past lives contain
no reservations whatever from one
another—which seems a little hard
on the men whose pictures they have
framed and preserved as relics.
I am their friend also, but I still
have a few undivulged thoughts, as
■well as a modest number of reserva-
tions. My name is Eliza, but I prefer
to spell it Ellse, and perhaps I am a
little envious of the other two, having
lost my own alter ego by her mar-
riage and never replaced her. How-
over, that doesn't belong to the story,
which really begins on the Bteamer
that carried us to Canada.
Elizabeth had heard of an island vil-
lage up there where hay fever was un-
known, and she read us bo many ex-
tracts concerning it from a booklet
she kept in her work basket that about
the first of June we cut adrift from
our respective families and started
off to spend the summer there. We
could do this with propriety, for we
had all passed the pin-feather age, al-
though I wish It distinctly understood
■we were still a long way from being
stringy about the throat.
We were sitting on the deck of the
■steamer watching the moonlight on
the water and enjoying ourselves very-
much indeed when a man came around
the corner of the cabin and sat down
near us, as, of course, he had a per-
fect right to do. Suddenly Gabrieile.
who was next him, jumped up and
clutched my arm
"Come away," she whispered. "Come
And, of course, we came forthwith.
She was quite pale and trembling
■when we reached the cabin, and for a
few minutes was unable to satisfy our
curiosity; but at last she Bpoke.
"He threw a chair into the water,"
che said, in an awed voice.
"Oh!" said Elizabeth, with evident
disgust, "Is that all? I thought it was
"It was quite enough," insisted
Gabrieile. "I was afraid he might
throw me next. You should have seen
his face and heard him muttering."
"What did he mutter?" Elizabeth
liked the whole of a story or none
'1 couldn't hear. But I think"—Ga-
brieile glanced around apprehensively
—"I tiink he's crazy, and I don't like
being on a boat with an unguarded in-
sane man. You never know what they
are going to do. Besides, he looked
1 did not blame him there, for Gab-
rieile Is woll worth looking at, espe-
cially when she Is gazing at the moon
•with the uplifted expression she re-
serves for that purpose. I sometimes
■wonder why she doesn't think some
man on earth worth it, but she says
distance lends enchantment in such
matters, and I suppose she knows her
own affairs best.
"Perhaps his keeper is somewhere
around," speculated Elizabeth. "Let's
go back and see if he is still there."
So we reconnoltereu stealthily, and
•aw him sitting quietly smoking and
not looking at all dangerous—a rather
tall, spare man in blue serge clothes,
with a cap pulled down over his eyes
and the air of one who is quite sat-
isfied with his surroundings. It was a
cool night, and the deck was almost
tleserted, so bo had our secluded cor-
ner behind the cabin all to himself,
and we could stand Just outside the
door and examine him at our leisure.
"He lookB Just like anybody else."
said Elizabeth, plainly disappointed.
"I didn't say he had a hump on his
back," returned Gabrieile, indignantly.
"I said he threw a chair overboard
and so he did."
"It is a new way of beginning a
flirtation," I murmured, "but customs
differ in various places. Perhaps you
should have sent your chair after it,
by way of acknowledging the atten
For at that moment ho leaned for-
ward, looked with Interest at the chair
beside him, felt its back and legB
poised it lightly in the air, and shot
it over the railing Into the water be-
low, where we saw it bobbing in the
foam in our wake.
"There!" triumphed Gabrieile. "Now
what do you say?"
We said nothing, for Just then he
reached for another chair. This time,
however, he was not bent on destruc-
tion, for he merely detached a dark
object hanging on its back. For the
second tlni* Gabrifclle clutched my un-
fortunate ar n, which was quite bruised
with her attentions.
"It's my bag!" she exclaimed. "My
new shopping bag. I left it hanging
on my chair—and he's opening it!
Oh, the wretch!"
The "wretch" proceeded to investi-
gate the contents of the bag, and
carefully examined each article as he
drew It forth. First a pair of gloves,
and then a handkerchief, which ho
held critically to his nose after scru-
tinizing the monogram.
"I hope he likos It!" ejaculated
Gabrieile, in an indignant whisper.
Next a small powder puff and a bit'
of chamois skin (regarded with tol-
erant amusement), a stubby pencil
minus a point and much dented from
thoughtful biting (having been used
to calculate our expenses), 25 cents,
three street car tickets, a latch key,
and a square card, at which he looked
long and earnestly.
"It is a good thing you wear your
money around your neck," remarked
Elizabeth, but Gabrieile pointed an
outraged finger at the unconscious
blue serge back.
"It is our picture," she said—"we
three together. Did you ever!"
Finding the moonlight not bright
enough for his purpose, he moved
nearer the cabin window, happening
as he did so to glance behind him.
Springing to his feet, he lifted his
cap and advanced towards us, bag in
hand, but with one accord we turned
and fled. It was best to take no
chances within reach of his hands. We
had no desire to follow the chairs over
I went with Gabrieile and Elizabeth
to their stateroom, where we spent
some time in discussing the strange
Incident and the fact that our picture
was still in the supposed lunatic's pos-
session. At length I bade them good-
night and set out to find my own
berth, as we had not been fortunate
enough to get adjoining rooms.
In the saloon I found the steward-
ess, who at once accosted me, with an
"Oh, if you please, miss," she said,
"could I speak to you?"
The burden of her Bpeech was a re-
quest that I share my stateroom with
Shot It Over the Railing Into the
a lady who had not been able to se-
cure one, and who was much fatigued
"And I thought, miss," sho con-
cluded, "that as you have a room to
yourself, perhaps you would be so kind
as to let her have the spare berth,
since It is the only one on the boat.
Would you mind obliging her?"
I did mind very much, and was
about to say so in no uncertain lan-
guage when the stewardess twitched
my skirt warnlngiy.
That's her," she whispered, "over
there under the light. Speak low, if
you please, miss, and don't go for to
refuse the poor dear a bed—don't,
I looked in the direction Indicated,
and felt glad I had not spoken. It was
a comparatively young face which
rested against the back of the chair,
but so pale, so worn, so unutterably
weary, that one wondered instinctively
what blow fate had seen fit to deal
this woman to so rob her of her girl-
hood. The pitiless glare of the elec-
tric light fell directly upon her, ac-
centuating the purple shadows be-
neath her eyes and the hollows in her
cheeks, while her listless pose sug-
gested heartsickness as well as fa-
tigue. One hand lay on the arm of her
chair, and as I advanced toward her
I noticed the gleam of her wedding
The stewardess tells me you have
no stateroom," I said. "I am ftlono,
and shall be glad to share mine with
The heavy lids lifted slowly, and I
found myseU looking into a pair of
wistful dark eyes with an unanswered
question in thim.
"Thank you," she said, in a sweet,
low voice. "You are most kind. I
know It Is not pleasant to share one's
room with a stranger, but I will come
gladly, for I am very tired. My hus-
She paused abruptly and a faint col-
or tinged her cheeks as a man ap-
proached and bent over her with an
unmistakable air of possession.
'It's no use, Juliet," he said; "I
can't get you a stateroom at any price,
and you are regularly done up, too!
We must manage with one of these
"It is all right, dear," she replied
gently. "This young lady Is good
enough to offer to share her room with
with me. My husband, Mr. Graham,
I supplied the name and bowed to
Mr. Graham, looking curiously at him
as I listened to his effusive thanks.
The man evidently possessed the
vitality his wife lacked. His every
movoment indicated that he was filled
to the finger tips with vibrant, pulsing
lifo, and one admired him with the ad-
miration one involuntarily accords a
perfect specimen of the animal king-
dom, whether man or beast Perhaps
his lips were a trifle too full and rod,
and his teeth rather unpleasantly daz-
zling when they gleamed under his
dark mustache; perhaps, also, there
was something In his large black eyes
now and then which might cause
woman to blush and turn aside If he
looked too long at her; but his man-
ner was very gentle as he bent over
his wife, and he collected her wraps
and helped her to rise with genuine
The stewardess was waiting to show
Mrs. Graham the room, and I decided
to remain in the saloon until she had
retired, so I sat down in a green plush
chair and amused myself watching my
fellow passengers and speculating as
to their destinations. I had Just deter
mined that a fat old lady opposite
was the mother of a large family and
going to visit a married daughter,
when the cabin door opened and Mr.
Graham returned alone.
He ralBed his hat as ho passed,
hesitated a moment, then seated him-
self on the arm of an adjoining chair.
We really owe you a debt of grat-
itude," he said. "Of course I can get
along perfectly well anywhere, but
Mrs. Graham Is not strong. She has
had a tiresome journey, and to-nlght
seemed to be the last straw. I sup-
pose you noticed how awfully done
up she was."
"She certainly seemed very tired."
"She will be all right to-morrow, aft-
er a night's rest—thanks to you. We
are going to spend the summer in
Canada. I think the climate there
will benefit her, it Is so invigorating.
And you? Are you also bound for
Canada, and are you traveling alone?"
I replied somewhat curtly that I
was with friends, for I had no desire
to prolong the conversation. Mr.
Graham, however, lingered with the
manner of one who has something on
his mind, but finds expression difficult.
At last he rose and said good-night,
after offering to look out for our bag-
gage when he landed in the morning.
"And by the way," he remarked,
carlessly, "don't be alarmed If my
wife should talk a bit in her sleep.
She does it now and then, especially
if she is overtired. She is apt to
dream, I think, and sometimes talks
a lot of gibberish. I trust you may
not be disturbed, but I thought I ought
to warn you. Good-night again, and
So Mrs. Graham talked in her sleep!
I thought rather ruefully of my pfbs-
pects for a peaceful night aa I slowly
walked the- length of the cabin—for
mine was an outside stateroom, and
it was necessary to go on deck to
The moon shone brilliantly, a path
of silver light falling across the water,
which rippled and sparkled alluringly.
I was bo rascinated by the beauty of
the scene that when I reached my
door I did not enter at once, but leaned
over the railing, watching the white
foam that marked our course, and
quite forgetful of the flight of time.
After a while two men approached
and one of them fitted a key In the
door next mine. As he stooped to ex-
amine the lock, the moonlight shone
full upon his face, and I recognized
our friend in blue serge with the
strange aversion to chairs. I wondered
if the person with him was an attend-
ant, and hoped the partition wall was
substantial. I was also conscious of
a strong desire to waken Gabrieile and
Elizabeth and seek shelter with

JAMES M. KERR DEAiD
National Committeeman Dies Sudden
ly After Operation
NEW YORK: James Kerr, demo-
cratic national commltteemui from
Pennsylvania, died at 1:40 o'clock Sat-
urday morning at his summer home
in New Rochelle, following an opera-
tion for an intestinal disorder which
had made him practically an invalid
fu.- a year. His wife and sons were
with him at the end.
Mr. Kerr was born in Mafflin coun-
ty. Ps„ in 1851. He received his ed-
ucation in the Pennsylvania schools
and removed to Clearfield, Pa., when
it young man. He took an active part
in politics on the side of the demo-
cratic plU'tj, with which he has al-
ways been identified and was elected
to the fiftj-first congress In 1888. Mr.
Kerr was democratic state chairman
during the Pattlson-Delamater guber-
natorial campaign In Pennsylvania,
one cf the rare occasions on which
th's state went democratic. It was at
this time he was made a member of
the democratic national commltteo.
Protection in Great Britain
There Is an apparent cnange in sen-
timent toward b protective policy for
Great Britain. In its adoption It
would seem that flour from the Unit-
ed States, and possibly wheat and
com also, would be discriminated
against In favor of similar products
from Great Britain's colonies. In
such an event we would have to face
the wheat of Canada, whose capacity
at preesnt is to grow 10,000,000 bush-
els of surplus wheat, and whose acre-
age In wheat Is increasing ten to
twenty per cent per annum. Her mil-
ling industry, now boasting some of
the largest mills in the world, has
jrrown by leaps and bounds the past
ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO HANG
Proof In Plenty to Convict Ringlead-
ers of Night Riders
Camp Nemo, Reelfoot Lake. Tenn.:
"We know who fired the shots and
who put the rope around Rankin's
neck." said Governor Patterson In a
statement here just hefore his de>-
parture for Union City, where a spe-
cial grand jury Is Investigating the
night rider depredations in thlB sec- I
tlon which culminated recently in the
murder of Captain Quentin Rankin.
The governor In his statement said ;
"The proof which has thus far de-
veloped is positive as to the guilt of
some of the men under arrest and im-
plicates many others. This will all be
presented to the court at the proper
time and a long step has been taken
to discover and suppress lawlessness
In this region. We know who fired
the shot and who put the rope around
Rankin's neck. The number of men
actually at the killing was probably
not more than ten, while some stood
guard and others held the horses.
"The whole number engaged in the
undertaking did not exceed thirty
five. The inquiry will further be pros-
ecuted and the state will have ample
evidence to convict."
The confessions of Ferriner, Hogg
and Morris substantiate, it Is said,
that of Ted Burton, made the other
Jay. These three will be used as
state's witnesses. They will be tak-
en to Memphis for safe keeping. It
Is understood that Garrett Johnson,
alleged captain of the night riders,
and others, will be taken to Nashville
A Tireless Statesman
The late Marquis dl Rudini, the
Italian statesman, led the strenuous
life. At 22 he was one of Garlbaldl'l
lieutenants In wresting Sicily from
the Bourbons, having in the mean-
time succeeded in evading a capital
sentence which the Neapolitan mon-
arch had launched against him. Be-^
fore he was 30, as mayor of Palermo, j
he put down brigandage, suppressed |
the Mafia and impressed the Sicilians
with the conviction that killing po-1
licemcn was the same thing as mur-j
der. Throughout his life, which has
just ended at three score and ten, ho
was an exemplar of that tireless en-
ergy which we are too apt to think
is monopolized by the Teutonic
