"1 have often wished a was Platte a response a that i had been quays office boy for six months or Pittsburg to convert the world �T�oo#o4o#oo##oooooo# to convert the entire world this in a nutshell is the aim of a new religious movement that is attracting worldwide attention. The inspiration and Backbone of this colossal undertaking is the laymen s missionary movement which numbers among its supporters and workers men High in the world of finance and various lines of successful business life. They come from every protestant Church in the land regardless of Creed Aud expect to carry the gospel to every non Christ Ian in the world within the next thirty five years. The figures furnished by the laymen s missionary movement give one some idea of the immense task it has set out to accomplish. The population of the entire world is 1,500,000,0 �0. Of this number Only one third Are christians and to fulfil the vow taken will require a Groat sum the amount needed being estimated it $53,000,000 annually which Means $1,925.000,01 0 to up Splete the work. A this will strike Many As some wild scheme that will fall through almost before the work has said j. J. Campbell White. Campbell White general Secretary of the laymen a missionary movement in speaking of their plans recently a but we have every Assurance that this great religious propaganda the greatest the world has Ever known will go of successfully to the end. Back of it Are wealthy and enthusiastic men from All the protestant churches who will devote much of their time and Money to the work. The common notion has been that so vast in undertaking would require several generations if not centuries. The other belief is that when Christ said preach the gospel to every creature he meant ills people in every age to do it in other words that it is the Clear duty of the present generation of christians to carry or Send the message of Christ to the entire non Cliris Situu world of our the chairman of the executive committee of the laymen a missionary movement is l r.

Base gains Are the same As five they Laid a plot for assassination and were betrayed. By Peter by Rezoff. Copyright 1910, by american Preux association. J Prince Trebour Skol minister of the Interior to the Czar of Russia sat in his office examining police reports. A a this a he said to himself a notes a conspiracy that gives no particulars. This charges one supposed to be Ltd voted to the government with i it Ein implicated in a plot to tit. Emperor on his coming trip to my t a i Kaiser of at this moment in attend a and announced that a Young. A wished to speak with ids highness on a matter of great importance to him. A Are you sure she has no weapon concealed under her clothes a asked the minister. A we can search a do so. Then if you Ore satisfied admit Frese utly n girl of Twenty with the Light hair and Blue eyes of the North entered. She was trembling. A what do you wish a asked the Prince. A to worn your highness of a a what object have you in warning me do you act purely from loyalty Quot Quot no. I love one of the a what is the conspiracy Quot a a plot to ass Assenato you. There Are five of them. They will station themselves at the Bridge across the saw one of the she had betrayed. Neva Between your office and your Home. One will give warning of your coming another will throw a bomb under your Carriage a third will be ready it the other end of the Bridge to shoot you in Cuso the bomb fulls the fourth Aud fifth will be ready to act in Ense you escape All of the first Tho minister paled. He stared at the girl waiting for her to proceed. A i will give you the names of these men a she continued Quot of condition that you follow u plan 1 have conceived whereby one of them whom 1 love will live while the others May be executed. They have persuaded him to join them and Given him the most dangerous position. 1 us willing that they should die but 1 wish to save Quot what is your plan Quot a i must protect him As Well from his associates us from you. If to receives immunity they will kill him believing that he has betray my them. Therefore when you arrest them arrest him As Well. Seut Euce them Ull to be shot but it him lire a Blank a upon my word Quot said the Prince. A what a head you have for such matters but supposing 1 prefer to punish these Ines la my own a then Ray lips Are a i Cun Send you to Quot that would not move the Prince arose from his desk and walked the floor in deep thought thee turning to the girl said a a accept your terms. I presume you wish some guaranty that i will carry out my part of the a no. If you suffer my Lover to be harmed 1 shall take it upon myself to relieve the state of your a but suppose i i it you where you will be a a there Are two others to carry out what you would prevent my doing. If the first fails Tho second will take up the work. If both fall there will be a third and a fourth to carry it a very Well. Now Tell to the rest of this the girl gave the information required and had no sooner left the minister than the Prince notified the police to locate every one of the conspirators and when this was done to arrest them simultaneously. That night they were taken to the fortress of St. Peter. Trials occur in Russia when it is deemed expedient to satisfy the people who Are cognizant of the Case. But in this instance no trial was needed. The name of the Man to he spared was Kri Koft and the police and a description of him so that there should be no another Way. A Why done to you throw away this old junk it is of no use to any a but that would make me feel Quot then give it away and feel Herald. Exercise is the chief source of improvement in All our . Papa s plan prevents proposal. He impecunious a but you say yourself that your father is anxious to get you off his Hunda. She yes that s Why i done to think hell listen to Exchange. Mistake made concerning him. The orders were to take a he men separately into the prison Yard stand them up against a Wall and proceed in accordance with the secret orders Given the governor of the fortress. At the same moment that the conspirators were arrested the police appeared at the Home of Vera Serevich the girl who had Given the information and took her into custody. This was something on which she had not counted. She thought she had Laid her plans so Well that the minister would not dare to suffer Barm to come either to her or to her Lover. This move of his part filled her with alarm. Moreover the police came upon her so suddenly that she had no time to communicate a word to any one. She was taken to the same fortress As the conspirators. In the morning hearing a drumbeat under her window she looked out Between the bars and saw one of the men she had betrayed led across the prison Yard. Several soldiers with muskets on their shoulders accompanied him. He was White As a Sheet. Indeed it was evident that he was going to his execution. The party disappeared behind a Wing of the prison. Vera listened and presently heard a Volley. Then she knew it was Oil Over with the condemned Man. She shuddered. For the first time the fearful selfishness of her treacherous act came to her in its full Force. Another drumbeat recalled her to the window. She would not have gone but she wished to see if her Lover would pass. No it was another of the conspirators whom she and handed Over to his death. He too was followed by u firing party. He. Too was deadly Pale. Like his predecessor he was soon lost to View behind the prison Wing. There was a horrible interval a Volley. In like manner Vera saw four of the conspirators marched by her prison window. They disappeared the interval of suspense the Volley. Every time one of the condemned men passed she vowed that she would not go to the window to see the next Man March of to the death she had prepared for him. But every time she was impelled to go le9t Tho Man should be her Lover. By Tho time the fourth Man had passed Sho had been thrown into a mental condition bordering on los Unity. Surely she was being punished for her infamous act. She had lost All expectation that the minister would keep Faith with her As to sparing Trikoff. When for the fifth time the drum sounded she saw her Lover marched past her window be looked up and Sho saw an expression of loathing on his face at recognizing her. By the movement of his lips she knew that be cursed her. She gave a wild shriek. She knew that be had been told what Sho and done. She heard the Volley. Hardly had Tho echoes of the shots died away when again came the tap of the drum. She started. Sho had counted those who had passed and there were five All those concerned in the conspiracy All the names she had Given. For whose execution could this drum tap be Tho signal suddenly the door of the room in which she was confined was thrown open and there stood an officer of the prison. A come a terror stricken she arose and staggered out with him. He led her Down a staircase and out into the prison Yard. There stood a firing party. Supported for she wus unable to walk alone she was marched around tin Wing behind which the others had disappeared. Of reaching a certain spot she was placed with her Back to the Wall her eyes were bandaged she heard the words a aim fire Quot there wus a Volley. Consciousness left her and she fell Forward of her face. Then she knew that she was not dead for Sho Felt herself shaken Over paving stones. She was in a Carriage. Gradually her full consciousness came Back to her. She Felt for a wound but found none. She had not been sex l Eluted after All. The Carriage stopped before the House to which she had gone the morning before to inform the minister Ltd the conspiracy. A Man got Down from Tho Box and opening the door commanded her to alight. She did so and tottered to the door which stood open. A attendant conducted her to the office of the minister. He sat at his desk writing. Standing in a Row near him were the five conspirators whom she had seen going to execution every Man alive. One of them was her Lover. Lie did not look at her. The men stood rigid the minister went on writing. The waiting for what should his substitute a Long absence that nearly lost a loved one. By loui8e Winter. Copyright 1910, by american press association a and there a this to be said in favor of marrying into the Navy you never Lack for an escort. If your husband is away on sea duty there a always some classmate of Bis to tote you around and play Margery had listened at the time to this defense of the service but As it was her Cousin not herself who was marrying into the Navy she did not pay much attention to Tho argument. A year later however when she became engaged to Lucu tenant Jim Allen she recalled it thoughtfully. For Margery was a southerner. Her appearance proclaimed that fact even before her delightful accent established it beyond question. She met Jim while she was visiting her Cousin it u Northern Navy Yard and became engaged to him after three weeks of ardent wooing and then she went Home to attn Mara with his ring of her linger and his image firmly engraved on her heart. Jim went to sen. It was easy enough to be Loyal while she stayed quietly in alter Nara for she knew every Man in the town and and been engaged to half the boys in her set but being engaged really wus different. A Cousin of her fathers who lived in new York wrote and asked the girl to visit her for the Winter. Her parents insisted upon her accepting the invitation. The Day she arrived in new York she slipped Jim a ring from her Finger and put it on the Chain she wore about her neck. It would save her a lot of troublesome explanations. New York was a revelation. It was her first glimpse of the Metropolis and she wrote glowing accounts of the Heaters restaurants and parties to Jim. Her Cousin had three daughters and the House was never Dull. A letter from Jim one morning brought her up guiltily. She was going motoring with a Man who claimed a Distant relationship and who had been most attentive Ever since her arrival. Jim a letter said that a shipmate of next i eusted to ii till i of these Ley the t his a a a i finally looked it quota you a Faith wit a there v �?o1 have 1 have up still this mull of a sus the intervals be it each one a a Mutel of the vol to. 1 spill d your it a to it was i reply merely a vacant stare. The minister turned to the conspirators. "1 an considered by you to be one whom it is your duty to put out of the Way but you must admit that 1 am not devoid of Justice. I could not bring myself to spare one of you equally guilty with the rest and execute the other four. Y of will be conducted to the Frontier under guard.

On the coast of Tho West Indian islands a curious kind of Coral is found called this has a most extraordinary property which makes the people who know it very shy of handling it. Tho moment you pick up a piece a sort of electric thrill runs through you and an agonizing pain shoots through your jaws. You feel As if every tooth and every nerve and muscle connected with them was burning. The acute pain lasts generally for about half an hour and slowly passes off but Tho effects do not disappear entirely for hours. The reason of this curious Shock or poisoning �9 a mystery. Sue awoke with a Sta it. His Hod just been ordered to the new York Yard and he had promised to it it look Margery up As soon As he arrived. Ills name was Prater and he would be sure to turn up in n few a Days. Margery sat beside Miller Wagram very soberly that Day her usual flow of easy chatter silenced or i i Wagram glanced at her curiously. Ii divined that something was amiss nine j he was troubled but he feared tothe position of Confidence he had j gained step by step by an injudicious question so he held his Pence. Prater called the next Day. Lie was i older than Jim a Hatchet faced Man of i thirty with Small shrewd eyes and a lurking smile it the Comers of thin lips. To delivered message j from Jim and then began to Lay plans for her entertainment As if he tin a she had been moping disconsolately before he Caine. He invited her to to a at tie Yard and she Felt obliged to in cent. The Day was decided upon and then he left. Cousin Kate received the halting confession with great to it t. A my dear child it was your secret and you had a perfect right to keep it. If you take my advice you will go on being silent. We will have Tea with or. Prater and thank him for it charming Courtesy and in return. It you wish i will ask him Here to in. Ner. Then your Jim will have not the to Eom Lalu it seemed so simple that Margery Felt a Load slipping from her. And a a threw both arms about Yusiu Kate and embraced her impulsively. The Tea at the Yard was As delightful j As six bachelors could make it. And. There was no open allusion to Jim Margery soon got Over her momentary embarrassment and enjoyed herself thoroughly. Prater scarcely left her Side he was most attentive and Quot a made her feel that he Hud gone out of his Way to do her Honor. He accepted Cousin Kate a invitation to dinner with alacrity and proved himself a most entertaining dinner guest. Then to invited them All to Dine on Hoard the station ship and Margery Felt the meshes tightening about her. The arms of the service were Long and they were reach ing out. She had been of the Point of slipping away and they were stretch ing out to recapture her. And in tin ten Days that followed she saw Prater almost Dally and Wagram but twice. A a it a different. In the service i can accept or. Prater a escort lie s Jim Friend Quot she vouchsafed to her Cousin As Tho latter ventured to protest against her going alone to the matinee will the naval officer. A and Miller Wagram is a relative you Gnu go with him better thu with a Quot a but he in t a stranger he a Jim a substitute Quot and Margery forced a Gay Little laugh. A a he a what Quot Cousin Kate was shocked and somehow the explanation sounded rather lame. To Tell Tho truth. Margery was miserable. She had reached n Point where she Felt that she and to come to a decision. Jim a outline and become hazy his lovemaking stereotyped. She Felt the distance Between them was widening hourly while Wagram was a real personality to be reckoned with. His Flowers Hla Candy his books were All pleasures she must take into account and now Sha must either decide to go on with a Shadow or East it aside and confess that she was mistaken in the strength of her affection for Jim. Prater came Home with her after tha matinee and stayed a Tull coii9ln Kata Felt obliged to ask him to remain and Dine. He accepted and in the evening Wagram called. Prater a intuition told him that this was Jim s most formidable rival and he was hostile in consequence. When Margery went up to her room she Lead come to t lie conclusion to write to join at once and break off her engagement. Fearing lest her Resol a might weaken la the morning she sat up till after Midnight trying to word her letter so that it should not sound too cruel and yet to show that her decision was final. When she sealed the envelope she was not satisfied Aud it was a White faced tearful eyed Margery who crept into bed and sobbed herself to sleep. She Lead not dreamed the actual break would Hurt so much. Wagram came in the to Ruig to escort her to Church Aud she kept him waiting beyond the traditional half hour and it took her so Long to dress that she forgot to it mail the letter lying of her desk. The Day was a Busy one. And she had scarcely time to think Hue when Wagram tried to draw her away from the others suggesting that to had something of importance to Telk. Her she put him off. A not tonight Quot she urged. A then tomorrow. Will you listen to Ltd me tomorrow Little girl a she nodded not daring to Trust herself to reply. In the morning she would Post the letter to Jim and in the afternoon she would Tell Wagram what she had done. Nevertheless la spite of the fact that she had stilled All regrets her sleep was broken and when she awoke her head ached so frightfully that she could not raise it from the Pillow. About 3 o clock in the afternoon Slit crept downstairs for a cup of Tea. Hep cousins had gone to a my Sica be. And Tho House was very quiet. The Tea refreshed her. And she curled up on Tho. Sofa in the Library and rested costly among the cushions. She awoke with a Start to find a Tail clean shaven menu looking Down at her. A heart full of love and longing la his honest eyes. She stared up at him wide eyed. A. Culprit. A Margery my Darling have i frightened you 1 wanted to take you by. Surprise sweetheart so i told Prater not to Tell you 1 was on my Way Home. But now Margery speak. Arentt you glad to see me Quot he was terrified at her continued silence. This wa9 scarcely the girl whose memory had never left him Day or night whom he had loved during the Long dreary months he had spent in the tropics. She had changed she was no longer a Dainty child she Vui a woman. And then he grew tender. Women were made of softer stuff than men. She knew what his coming portended and she was a bit afraid. In a Little while she would forget and give herself up Only to the Joy of their reunion. He had been too impetuous. To should have let Tho maid announce him. But As he had been As sure of her As himself he had insisted upon going in alone. At the sound of his voice Margery Felt her heart stir painfully and As she kept of staring at him his dear face gradually blotted out All memory of that other till when he paused and the silence Between them grew embarrassing. A Rush of feeling swamped All other emotion Aud she put up her arms suddenly. A Jim of. Jim i am so glad a she cried and the rest was lost As he gathered her Host t a ids breast. About an hour later when Jim a ring was again on her linger Aud they sat Side by Side on who sofa her hand in hl9. He spoke of Rater.
