The Whitney amp Currier co. A. W. Fuller mgr. A come Palm commanded Jane Tivy in Bright Sharp tones. Titus Tivy a Meek undersized Man responded to the summons and stood unresisting by before his daughter while in accordance with Lier biweekly custom she prepared him for his trip to town. First she deftly folded a Muffler about his neck buttoned his great coat snugly Over it and then put on his Cap tying the ear laps in place. She next handed him the memorandum for groceries and a letter to mail with instructions to carry it Iii his hand All the Way a lest he when he had taken his seat in the Wagon amid the molasses Jug kerosene can and butter crocks she put a soapstone at his feet Aud tucked about him a heavy Blanket shawl in lieu of a Lap Robe albeit the Day was Bright and sparkling. When he had driven away she went serenely into the House to put the finishing touches to the toilet of her sister Rose a girl of fourteen years. Rose did not submit to Lier costuming As meekly As her father had done. She pouted at the hanging braids of hair bucked against the White apron and begged for a dip to her Blouse. Jane authoritatively silenced and overruled these objections and Rose went sullenly to school. For five years since the death of her Mother Jane had held a tight rein Over the household and its members were strictly under Jaue Rule. She was a woman of convictions. One of them was that her duty clearly Lay in managing the affairs of others. People were afraid of Jaue. They submitted to her domineering or avoided it. There lived a Man on ail adjoining farm however who was not afraid of Jane. For some time he had resolved to introduce her to her True self and he had chosen this morning to do it. He appeared amid the pots and kettles and Jane. A drop your work Jane and sit Down. I want to talk to a Well Joel i guess you la have to choose some other time for visiting. In a no lady of Leisure. This is my time to a Jane a said Joel with a new quiet ring in his voice a you Are going to listen to me now. I have waited your convenience just As Long As i am going Jane a nostrils dilated dangerously but her heart beat faster than it Ever had before although she had a kept company with or 1 for six years. A Joel Dixon a she replied snapping off her words As if she were biting thread a that Isnit the tone to take with me. It does no to go i have no time to listen to you Joel a Stock of patience had endured for six years. It was now exhausted. He recalled tile vision he had encountered on his Way hither of Titus Tivy driving to town. Ile gave a Short laugh at the recollection squared his shoulders for action and crossed the Kitchen to Jane lie took the dishcloth from her threw it on the floor and taking her Arm marched her into the sitting room and seated her on the Plush sofa. A now Well talk business a he said decisively. Jane was silent from sheer Surprise but into her being were inoculated the germs of fear respect Aud liking for Joel tiny germs it is True but destined to flourish. A i have waited six years for you to name the Day Jane. If you done to do it i shall. After your mothers death it was reasonable to expect to wait a year or maybe two but ill wait to Jane was returning to her Normal condition. A we must wait a year a she decreed. A the mortgage will be paid then. Rose will be through a a you la marry me a month from to Day of not at All a he said composedly. Jane jumped to her feet. A indeed Well i am not going to be forced or threatened by you. Joel Dixon ill not marry you until i see fit a a Jane a he replied coolly a you Are acting under the mistake of thinking you Are necessary to your father Aud Rose. They a get along a great Deal better without you or More to their liking a what do you mean a she cried in Surprise. A what i say. You Haven to been so successful running things Here As you think and there s going to be no Petticoat Rule at my House. Today a wednesday. You just think Over what i have said and saturday about this time ill come Over again Aud prove up what i having thus spoken Joel departed and Jane returned to the abstracted washing of dishes with new food for thought. When her father was unfolding the Bingville weekly that afternoon she astonished him by saying a spa Haven t i managed the House Well and kept up things since a died a Titus Tivy peered at Lier Over his spectacles and paper. He did not answer with the alacrity she had expected. A Well Jane a he finally said a i guess you re the Best Cook and housekeeper in these parts. There ainu to a Lazy Bone in your Jane was not satisfied. A that is not what i mean. Haven to things been As you liked in be always done what i thought was for the Best a a Why Jane a he hesitated a your Way May he the Best but folks done tour special suit Sale is progressing very nicely and we have Given some gains such As Are Seldom found. Bar our Trade has been delighted with the Nice up to Date line of Good we have been offering and we still have a Verv Large line of suits overcoats hats Caps. Smoking jackets Bath Robes night Robes fancy socks suspenders shirts neckties kerchiefs men s and ladies umbrellas shoes Aud slippers. The prices we Are offering on these goods Are astonishingly Low and we want you to come to our store and see for yourself the values we Are offering. Duality and right at prices Are by the Arm and marching her out of the House. Surprised she suffered herself to be led or rushed through the Orchard. Down the Hill to where the Road wound its Way. A now stand behind this tree and watch he said. Wondering if he had gone crazy she did As he directed. She saw Lier father drive jogging Fleetwood up to a Zigzag Corner of the rail Fence get out take the soapstone wrap it in the shawl and pitch it behind a stump. Then he unbuttoned his coat threw his Muffler under the Cushion took off his Cap doubled Back the ear laps inside the Crown put the letter and memorandum Iii his pocket got Back in the buggy and drove away. Jane looked at Joel a Light of new intelligence creeping into Lier eyes. A has lies a a the has. For five years. Ile knows what he wants and has had his own Way right along Only lie thought it was easier to let you think you were having she turned Back toward the House Joel accompanying her. A and has every one about Bere known it a she asked faintly. A yes they have thought it a Good joke on you and they liked your father too yell to give him she looked so utterly miserable that he almost but not quite relented. A no done to go in the House yet a he said. A there goes Rose Down the Road. When she a out of sight i want Sci to a i done to need to a replied Jane quietly. A i suppose she stops and remakes her toilet a yes she hides her apron under a Stone Perks up her front hair and jerks up the braid to meet it and pulls Down Lier shirt she sat Down Oil the Steps. A then All these years a she said bit Terly a a in be been a failure and a a no Jane. You have simply made the mistake a great Many competent women make of wanting to she was silent. Joel thought he saw an Effort to hide a tear and Felt encouraged. Ile sat Down beside Ler and put his Arm about her. A a month from last wednesday she turned her head away. A ooh you a better take Lucy Wicks. Sliced never try to Boss you. You need a woman with no will of her a no he said gently turning her fact toward him a i Nee it the of Gorman Mahon. Franciscan monastery. Washington replica of the holy sepulchre at Jerusalem. A bit of strange old world transplanted into this with All its original atmosphere intact is the Beautiful monastery a few Miles out from Washington under the saintly auspices of the franciscan friars. The institution almost seems an anachronism planted with All its mediaeval suggestions with in a Birds flight of the bursting new world City. A monastery within sound of the Gong of the trolley cars a monastery a stones throw from a soda Fountain a monastery in a Mise in scene of strictly up to Date minute american Ness the combination on i the face of it is bizarre. Yet once within its sacred Walls one feels trails-1 ported Back a thousand years one becomes himself a part of hoary history a a running mate of Godefroid de Bouillon a close chum of Peter the Hermit and All the vast crusading company. The monastery of the holy sepulchre j is in All respects an exact facsimile of the original building at Jerusalem the holy City which encloses the sacred Tomb the object of the holy wars. The i holy sepulchre with the crack across i the Stone is exactly reproduced in the monastery at Washington As Are the crypt Grottoes and even the winding. I Musty catacombs the latter however i Only for dramatic effect since no inter ments will Ever be made within them. The monastery of the holy sepulchre j erected within the last three years j like its Model at Jerusalem is in the shape of a fivefold Cross the Emblem of the order of Jerusalem. The vast cruciform Church is supplied with Plain chairs and Prie Dieux As in the old country instead of stationary pews. There Are shrines and altars in every Niche. Here tonsure monks and Lay Brothers in the most picturesque garb hold solemn service marching in reverent procession from shrine to shrine devout and chanting.

A but what a the pleasure in Good clothes if you can to Wear them As you want to a again Jane was silenced. A they say a continued Rose partly a that Joel Dixon a Sweet on the new a great fear smote Jane. Then she rallied of Joel Dixon wanted a utile Meek clinging Vine woman f it a a wife he could take Lucy Wicks and Welcome. But Rose s speech rankled and lingered Iii her memory tin nigh the week Aud she anxiously awaited what saturday might Brig Forth. It brought Joel just As she was starting her father for town. As Titus gathered up the reins Jane intercepted the Exchange of winks Between her father and her Lover. This troubled her Aud she was in a puzzled rather than an antagonistic mood Lien left alone with Joel. A come with me a he said taking her Protection Iii a direct incentive to the formation of combines Tariff Reform is one of the Cardinal principles of the democratic Faith and the necessity for it was never greater than at the present time. It should be undertaken at once Iii the interest of All our people. The Dingley Tariff is excessive in Many of its rates and. As to them at least unjustly and oppressively burdens the people. It secures to Domestic manufacturers singly or in combination the privilege of exacting excessive prices at Home Aud prices far above the level of sales made regularly by them abroad with profit thus giving a Bounty to foreigners at the expense of our own people. Its unjust taxation burdens the people generally forcing them to pay excessive prices for food fuel clothing and other necessaries of life it levies duties on Many articles not normally imported in any considerable amount which Are made extensively at Home for which the most extreme protectionist would hardly justify protective taxes and which in Large amounts Are exported. Such duties have been and will continue to be a direct incentive to the formation of Nuge Industrial combinations which secure from foreign Competition Are enabled to stifle Domestic Competition and practically to monopolize the borne Market. It contains Many duties imposed for the express purpose Only As was openly avowed of furnishing a basis for reduction by Means of reciprocal Trade treaties which the Republican administration impliedly at least promised to negotiate. Having on this Promise secured the increased duties the Republican party leaders spurred on by protected interests Defeated the treaties negotiated by the executive and now these same interests cling to the Benefit of these duties which the people never intended they should have add to which they have no moral right. Even now the argument most frequently urged in behalf of the Dingley Tariff and against Tariff Reform generally is the necessity of caring for our infant industries. Many of these industries after a Hundred years of Lusty growth Are looming up As Industrial giants. In their Case at least the Dingley Tariff invites combination Aud monopoly and gives justification to the expression that the Tariff is the Mother of Parker. He swaggered of to death As he had swaggered through life. The of Gorman Mahon was about eighty years of age when i met him for the first time. One could still see what a lion of a Man he had been. He was Over six feet High. Ile had still an immense mane of Snow White hair and lie had a Long White Beard. The face was Long and horse shaped the eyes were still Bright and fierce and defiant Aud the voice had a deep note like the Roar of a enraged lion. The of Gorman Mahon was the very Pink of old fashioned Courtesy but one could easily see what a Man he had been. He was the great dualist of his Day a survival of the Squires who live in the pages of the chroniclers of Ireland before the Union. Ile had been out dozens if not scores of times and there was a Story of his fighting some three duels All in a morning. It was curious that he stuck to the old dueling gospel to the end. I Nevei saw a Man so disgusted As he was when he found that or. Parnell would not Send a Challenge to sir William Harcourt for some insulting language which sir William had used to the Irish chief. I can still recall the scene. It took place at one of the tables in the tearoom of the House of commons. The old Warrior turned up at the consultation looking almost Radiant. He sniffed the dueling ground from afar. Some Tao or three of the then Young colleagues of Parnell were present and this idea of a Challenge appeared to their modern minds of course As something grotesque. But the of Gor Man Mahon had come in perfect Faith that a Duel was a certainty and his Long horse shaped face became visibly longer As Parnell calmly said that he did not regard dueling As rational or necessary. The old gentleman was too polite to express his real feelings but the pained silence which followed the announcement of Parnell sufficiently revealed what he Felt. During the All night sittings of the eighties the of Gorman Mahon was always in his place. Ile made it almost a Point of vanity never to be absent when any such work was going. He wore the same suit of clothes Winter and summer. It was a curious Light coloured heavy Tweed. Somehow or other it seemed to Accord with the White inane and the White Beard. He also was a great smoker but instead of a Cigar he used to smoke the democratic pipe and if i mistake not the tobacco was both Strong and cheap. He could Tell very strange tales of the old Days in Ireland and in Many other parts of the world too. He had fought in some of the Many civil wars of the Southern hemisphere and had Many marvels to relate of earthquakes revolutions and other natural and human Phenomena in those far off regions. I was with the Gallant old fellow within a few hours of his death. He died As he had lived. He was full of the round oaths of the eighteenth Cen i Tury had his drink to the last joked i about his ninety years refused All Cou a solutions temporal or spiritual Aud i swaggered off to death As he often had i done to the dueling ground. He was the last of a m. A. P. By cords. Their in stockinged feet slide Over the Stone floor in noiseless sandals. There san ascetic look of peace and on their Pale faces a softened cadence to their Rich voices. The franciscan monks Are missionaries in emulation of their Patron Saint. A Sweet St. Francis of Assisi the mendicant Friar. A Large number of Lay Brothers Are being educated Here within the cloistered monastery to take their places like the crusaders of old in the Battle against the infidelity of the Oriental land sanctified by the presence of the sacred sep Plain dealer. The Vatican gardens. The Vatican gardens Are of Horseshoe shape. On entering a Noble Terrace stretches away and goes round two sides of a Large formal Garden. At the end of the first stretch of Terrace the Carriage Road mounts up a Hill and encircles the grounds but More tempting than the wide Well kept drive is an irregular opening in the Green Wall through which you pass into a Wood wild and Shady. At the top of the Wood the ground opens out. And upon the Crest of the Hill is a Small Villa with plainly furnished rooms Aud a Little Chapel built As a summer residence for Leo Xiii. Beyond it is a Vineyard with a Broad walk leading to the modern Grotto of the Madonna of Lourdes and farther on to a Large enclosure for wild animals a sort of menagerie. Here Are ostriches pelicans and other foreign Birds Aud various kinds of Deer. The present Pope often walks Here and comes to watch the animals through the bars. Kast bound.

A typical Case is that of a Young doctor who came to America to make his Fortune with a Hundred spare dollars in his pocket. He tramped about new York for weeks to find work to suit him.

I he tried All sorts of glasses to see if he i could discover How the particular glow j was gained but without Success. Chance revealed the secret. The picture began to buckle from its mount i and its owner sir Seymour Linden j put it into the hands of a noted expert to be remounted. When he had successfully removed it from its old mount i the expert sent for the owner to show j him what he had discovered. A Circle \ of Orange Vermilion had been plastered on the Back with an Ivory palette knife j where the artist wanted the effect and then worked off sufficiently far through i the pores of the previously netted a i per to give the show of color while retaining the smooth surface without a j Trace of workmanship on the right Side.
