Miss Sanderson accepted and mentioned the 10th of july As the Date of her arrival. Mrs. Eastburn told her son that she was expecting a visitor of whom she had heard Many pleasant things and asked him if he would not like to. Meet her. At the station and bring her to the House. Ordering his Auto he proceeded to the station. A Are you looking for miss Sanderson a asked a Young woman who left the train. A �?~1 a a you re or. Eastburn then Quot a a in a miss Sanderson a maid. Just before the.

Eastburn dined with his Mother smoked yawned and said that if miss Sanderson or some one else did no to come the next Day he must go Back to the City. positively stand the Dull. Place any longer. At 9 of clock he said he would go up to his room and read. Passing the sewing room he saw miss Sanderson a maid doing some mending. A do you think your mistress i purely arrive tomorrow Quot he asked. A a i done to know sir. She said so he stood at the door irresolute. Even a Chat with the maid would be a Relief.

If they Don t marry a it the proper time for marriage they done to fill the natural course of their lives. They done to . Eastburn was silent and thoughtful for a moment then said a i believe you re right. Many an evening 1 go to Ray lonely room in the City and to bed a but you have a Home Here Quot a there Why. Mother bothers me All the while. She treats me As she did when i was a boy. It s my rubbers or my overcoat or a fear that ill get spilled out of my Auto or something like that with no rest from morning till the maid Bent Over her work thinking. A a Penny for your thoughts Quot said Eastburn. The maid looked up inquiringly and he explained by asking her what had set her to thinking. Quot i was wondering. She replied Quot if a wife should worry about you in that Way would it bore Quot i was the indefinite reply. Or. Eastburn heard his Mother coming upstairs and not relishing being caught in conversation with a maid he went on up to his room. The suggestion that marriage was. After All the Only real life for Man or woman coming from one who could not possibly aspire to one of such different social position impressed him. Women had said that to him before but he knew they either wished to marry him for his wealth or secure him for a daughter. Spoken by this Humble maid the words had a new import. As he was dropping off to sleep he was picturing a Home of his own with a wife in it. And during the last moment before unconsciousness the wife was the image of miss Sanderson a maid. The next morning while or. Eastburn was sitting with his Mother at the breakfast table a Telegram was received from the expected guest saying that she was again delayed and would write. When the letter came the writer said that it might be a week before she could arrive. She also gave the information that her maid was not a common servant but a student of Domestic science and a Friend whom she had taken into her service. Would or. Eastburn kindly treat her with More consideration than an Ordinary servant Quot Mother Quot exclaimed the son a confound this miss Sanderson a Quot what do you mean Edmond Quot a a she a sent a lady up Here As a maid without telling us anything about it. I suspected right away that the girl was not an Ordinary maid. We must change our treatment of her at once. Let her Dine with us this evening. I wish to make amends for not having shown her proper miss Eastburn was quite willing to act upon her songs suggestion. She spoke to the maid after breakfast and told her of the proposed change. Quot please give me your name Quot said mrs. Eastburn. Quot Adele Quot never mind the Adele what Quot Quot Adele Quot Well miss Richards. I believe you brought some baggage of your own. I Trust you have some suitable miss Richards said that she had and from that moment dropped the ways of a maid. She appeared at dinner suitably but simply dressed and it seemed to or. Eastburn that the whole House was changed. His Mother was delighted that something had occurred to keep him with her since she had been dreading his departure. Or. Eastburn asked a great Many questions about Domestic science and from miss Richards replies made up his mind that she must be a very stupid student. But since she was pretty and attractive be did no to mind this. After dinner when the maid lady or maid whichever the girl was sat Down at the piano and played the most difficult music delightfully or. Eastburn was surprised again. From that time Forward the Young Man had some one to flirt with and thus while away the hours pleasantly. forgot All about the expected guest or if he remembered that she was to visit Bis Mother hoped her engagements would keep her away indefinitely. Fortunately for him she never came. During miss Richa Rdse stay the Loaner of surplus funds instructed his attorney to foreclose certain mortgages the interest of which was in default. The attorney replied that the Mortgagor would like to meet him at their office for a conference. Or. Eastburn spoke of the matter to miss Richards to whom be had become engaged saying that he would decline the conference. His Fiancee convinced him that it was his duty to meet his debtor. went to the City and miss Richards followed him on the next train. On entering his attorneys private office whom should he see but miss Sanderson a maid. Quot what Are you Here for Quot he asked astonished. Quot in a your Quot my debtor a Quot yes. In a Edith Sanderson the the Young Man looked at his Fiancee in a dazed manner while she continued a perhaps you a better not foreclose these mortgages seeing that the matter will soon be in the a Well i reckon not Quot replied or Eastburn and grit courageous acts of the men in the Iron masks. A Fine display of nerve. A rising financier. Fissures in the Rockies. In some of the blah plateaus or mesas of the Rocky mountains there Are to be found a Short distance from the Edge cracks or fissures not More than four feet wide and often As much As eighty feet deep. During the terrific blizzards that rage in the Winter these crevices Are filled to the level and cattle and horses which Are not acquainted with the country frequently drop into them their struggles Only causing them to sink deeper and deeper. The cracks into which the Sun never penetrates Are like refrigerators and the hapless brutes when death has come to their Relief become to All intents and purposes mummies. When Billy Evans braved the onslaught of a Chicago mob and won out a notable decision by of Day. An Umpire who saved baseball. A umpires Are Brave men at least the great majority of them. One of the bravest things i Ever Baw was the act of Billy Evans on the old White sox grounds in Chicago Quot writes Hugh Fullerton in the american Magazine. A on that Park there was a tier of seats known As the stockyards in which gathered one of the most dangerous crowds for umpires in the country. They were regulars who occupied the same seats almost every Day and who fought for them. The seats of course were not reserved but hundreds claimed a title to certain places. They paid their quarters and if any one was in the place and refused to move he was tossed out and thrown Over the Heads of the crowd to the Bottom. That crowd started after Evans who had Given a close decision at third base against Chicago. Evans walked Over on to foul ground Back of first base and a Shower of bottles fell around him. It looked As if a Hundred men were throwing bottles at the Umpire. One bottle touched his Cap. Several 1 bounded and struck him one hit him i on the Arm. During this bombardment Evans did not turn Bis head. stood watching the Batter. For at least three. Minutes the bottles whistled around his Bead. The people in the grand stand shouted for him to run fearing he would be killed. The players begged him to move into the Diamond out of Range. stood still with Back to his foes until the Batter made a base hit then trotted Down near second base to watch for a play there. As the opposing team took the Field a few moments later Evans walked to the same position Back of first base and the crowd that had tried to kill him stood up and cheered him. They recognized a Brave Man. One fellow threw a bottle and the crowd pitched him Down the Steep Steps passing him along until he hit the Fence. A the nervies decision and one of the most important Ever made was that of Umpire of Day in the world s championship game Between chicago1 and Detroit on oct 8, 1907, the first game of the series which finally ended in a tie in twelve innings. In the eleventh inning Chicago actually scored the winning run Only to lose it through the decision of of Day a Chicago Man and a National leaguer. Slagle was on third base and started Home with the Ball Back of third la left Field. The Ball was thrown Home and arrived after Slagle had crossed the plate and was nearly to the Bench. Sternfeldt who had been batting was excited and when the Ball was thrown to the plate wild and wide he jumped and let it bit Bis shoulder and prevented Schmidt from catching it of Day in spite of the fact that Slagle had crossed the plate and that there Wasny to a Chance to put him out called him out because of Steinfeldt a interference. A there was a close decision at Cleveland one Day when Tim Hurst widely known As the a scrappy ump was officiating. Burkett was trying to score from second on a hit the Catcher failed to touch his foot but touched his knee and Cleveland claimed the foot reached the rubber before the Ball reached the knee. Hurst called him out and in the Wrangle that followed expelled Pat Tebeau o Connor and Burkett from the game. Then he put them off the grounds. They left the playing enclosure but All three had their Heads Over a Gate shouting at Hurst and urging the other players to avenge them. Teberan shouted to Good old Deacon Maguire who was catching a get after him. Jim Hurst heard but was not in position to reply. Maguire heard and waited until he thought Hurst mis called a strike. Then he rushed at the Umpire at top Speed. Hurst stood still. When Maguire came near enough Hurst kicked him on the shins and poked his mask into his face. Maguire fell Back astonished. A if you Don t like it Jim a said Hurst softly a give it to Pat i merely punched you a they Are a Square men a these umpires forced to be a bit Gruff and to fight but their Devotion to their work and their honest Effort to discharge their duties Mark them As men of High integrity. And they Are i saw Bob Etc Sale once when a foul Ball struck him Over the heart. The pain was excruciating. His face grew White and he set his Teeth together and resumed work. Three balls were pitched after he was hit. called them All clearly. Then be collapsed falling As if dead and was carried off the Field Ufi conscious. A one night i saw politicians wealthy men. Club owners argue for hours with an ample. All they wanted him to say was �?~1 did no to see upon those words hang the Fate of a championship the future of a major league and the honesty of baseball. The Umpire replied a but a it i did see it la and he saved the important question. The new fireman was telling his wife a bout the fire. A it broke out at Midnight in the von Buffer so House on the Avenue a he said a and just As we got there miss von Buffer came stumbling out of the flames and smoke carrying her Little Niece All wrapped up in her arms. It a was the bravest act i Ever a what was she wearing a inquired the fireman a Plain dealer. has the right idea and the nerve if he can Only work them. The old Man was perched upon a High Stool figuring up the Days sales of dry goods groceries and hardware when his son came in with a Rush. A say pop a exclaimed the Young Man a if i can buy a $300 horse for $150, will you take a chattel mortgage on him and help me out with the Cash Quot a what kind of a Hoss my son a inquired the father cautiously. A Ebay four years old sixteen hands High weighs a thousand pounds and is sound in wind limb and a that sounds Good to me my son and i want to do All i can to help you along in the and he reached Down into the Safe for his Roll. A How much do you want a a a Hundred and forty nine the old Man gasped and caught hold of the desk. A what Quot he exclaimed. A a Hundred and forty nine fifty. In be got half a slowly the old Man shoved the Roll Back into the Safe. A my son a he said softly Quot you Are wasting time trading houses. What you ought to do is to go into the loan and Trust . Lampton in lip Pincott a. Taxes and torture. The Duke of Alvah a Quot tenth Penny that caused riots in Spain. One of the most absurd and tyrannical measures of taxation that were Ever imposed upon a people was that ordered by the despotic Duke of Alva prominent in the history of Spain up to 1582, when he died. For six years he was governor general of the Netherlands and levied a tax called the a tenth Penny Quot or 10 per cent upon every article of merchandise to be paid As often As it should be sold. assessed real and personal property 1 per cent to be paid instantly and collected once and on every Transfer of realty he exacted 5 per cent. Every one in the land excepting Alva himself perceived How utterly ridiculous a scheme it would prove but he persisted in enforcing the Rule. The towns rebelled and examples by dozens were made of refractory subjects who were tortured to death but to no purpose. Finally Philip ii., the Spanish King was petitioned and a temporary Compromise was effected by which the towns were to pay $2,000,000 annually for the two succeeding years until August 1571.

For a ale by All Deal ice in Persia. The fact that ice is plentiful and cheap makes living in Persia More pleasant than it would otherwise be and the fact that it can be obtained at All is indicative of the ingenuity of the people of the country. The ground is so porous that water percolates through quickly. There Are therefore few Rivers or lakes from which ice can be obtained and it is Seldom so cold in any part of Persia that ice of a thickness suitable for packing would form under the direct rays of the Sun. The persian obtains his ice by making a shallow Pool and building a High Wall which will protect it from the Sun. A thin layer of ice will form. This he floods at night with water and so he goes on adding Inch to Inch until he can Cut a Block of considerable Angeles times. J Garfish skin.

A what Are they made of Quot she asked admiringly. Quot Garfish skin Madam Quot answered the Salesman. A Garfish leather we find is very Little known about outside of the Trade and yet it has come to be of importance. It not Only can be worked up to the polish but it is wonderfully hard. They say certain tribes of indians knew its secret and that among them it was used As Armor the tradition being that a breastplate of it would resist any Tomahawk or Arrow. It can be made now so that it will turn the Edge of a knife or a York Sun. liked the lie. William was said to be the ugliest though the most lovable Man in Louisiana. On returning to the Plantation after a Short absence his brother said a Willie i met in new Orleans a mrs. Forrester who is a great admirer of yours. She said though that it Wasny to much the brilliancy of your mental attainments As your marvelous physical and facial Beauty which charmed and delighted a Edmund Quot cried William earnestly a that is a wicked lie but Tell it to me again Quot a everybody scream ponies. The famous Cream ponies which Are used to draw the Kings Carriage on state occasions Are the sole survivors of a Breed of horses which has otherwise passed out of existence. They Are the direct and Only pure bred descendants of the famous horse3 of Hanover which George i. Brought with him to his new English kingdom two centuries ago. The once famous White horse and Black horses of Hanover have died out and now the creams alone survive and Only in England for when Queen Victoria sent to Hanover about 1890 to procure fresh Stock for the Royal stud not one was to be answers.
