"Certainly not: I should be ashamed
of myself to think so meanly of him."
"It's true whether you believe It or
not" said draco spitefully; "he lores

he asks vou to marrv him. it will be be-

Then secinff that her sister b.irred
her way she suddenly drew up her
slight form with queenly dignity and
"Don't forget yourself Grace and
don't make me angry. This Is not tho
way in which we should spend Christ-
mas Day. Let me pass."
(iraco looked for a moment at her
lovely sister and n sullen scowl came
over her own pretty face but sho utter-
ed no word of justification nml turning
sullenly left the room.
No one could lmvo suspected the de-
mon of rago nnd Jealousy that lurked In

There had been soma romance about

that when his wlfo had been dead little
more than a year he married a pretty
girl young enough to be his own daugh-
ter and brought her home to Sllrcrton.
Itut the glrl-brlde toon wearied of her
old husband nndpf her magnificent sur-
roundings. Tho quiet life she led with
her stately husband soon becamo Intol-
erable to her nnd this feollng was aug-
mented by his too erldont disappoint-

Sho tilled the house with guests of

eloped with a young ofllcer leaving her
The Indignant husband did not at-
tempt to follow his falthloss wlfo: ho
simply Ignoied her existence nnd he
took no notice of her letters when sho
wrote long afterwards professing re-
pentance and asking forgiveness.
Sho is dead now but the outraged
husband often remembers her when he
looks on the face of his youngest daugh-
ter nnd tills may be nono of tho causes
why Graco is not his favorite child.

she complained of tho devotion of the

THE LONDON DYNAMITER.
Trial nt Cunningham Charged
with the Tower Explosion.
I-onoox February 2. The cxarotcn-
Hon of James U. Cunnlnghktn charged
with complicity In the recent explosion
at tho Tower ofj.ondon begun In the
How street Tollco court this morning.
Toland solicitor In opening the cue for
the crown said the Government intend-
ed to prove that the prisoner was an ac-
tive agent In a conspiracy which culmi-
nated In the horrible outrage at the
Tower. The solicitor then related the
facts In regard to the prisoner's move-
ments at Liverpool and at London from
the time of his arrival at Liverpool from
America up to the 'date of.lili'arrest at
the Tower a few minutes after the ex-
plosion occurred. Ills traveling under
assumed names ailbrrt.amlDaltonand
many other suspicions circumstances
wero connected" Willi his stsy at both
the above cftW Toland dwelt parllcn-'
larlyon the mysterious disappearance
of a peculiar box from the prisoner's
lodgings lii" Scarl'ioro street Immediately
after Cunningham' arrest. Toland laid
stress upon these facts In orderto show
that Cunningham was In league with
others who must have been Instructed In
the line of action to be taken In case of
arrest. Toland further said witnesses
will be produced to prove that Cun-
ningham had for several days previous
to the explosion been teen loitering
In and around the Tower or Lon-
don. He then produced a plan of the
Power nnd pointed out the snot
where the explosion took place ntthe
same time going Into details or the dam-
ages donb the building nnd the Injuries
sustained by the penons wounded br
the explosion lie also produced a small
detonator found In the prisoner's bag-
gage and said It was similar to those
used Iu previous dynamite outrages In-
dicating that the prisoner might hate
been connected with those crimes. In
conclusion Toland asked that Cunning-
ham be arraigned under the explosive
net on a charge of conspiracy and said
he might Possibly at a later day request
that the charge be changed to high trea-
son so that the penalty of tho latter
crime could be meted out to him as
dynamite outrages could onlv be' cont
strued ns acts of war or a rebellious
Tolnnd's nollllcatlon to the court that
the Government reserved the privilege
of changing the charge ngnlnst Cunning-
hum to high treason so that the result
of conviction might be execution Instead
or Imprisonment caused a commotion
among the spectators. Tin declaration
wns construed Into nn admission that
the crown Is certain that in Cunningham
they had tho most Important witness
yet arrested Tor dynamite crimes. This
Impression wns continued by the extra-
ordinary precautions taken to prevent
his escape or rescue. He was con-
veyed from his cell In Cletkenwell
rirlson to the How street court
n n strong van. Cunningham was
tito only prisoner but locked In
with him were several armed
constables. On each side of the driver
was an armed policeman nnd oillcers
with exposed revolvers stood guard
upon the steps leading to the vnn's barr-
ed doors. Few persons were admitted
to the How street police court during
the examination. Before the commence-
ment ofregulnr proceedings a number
or witnesses assembled In court for the
purpose of Identifying the prisoner as
the man reported to the police as having
been engaged In suspicious movements
Just before the explosions. Cunningham
was placed In a small crowd but time
of the witnesses one or whom was a
woman tlio other two being constables
had no dllllculty In singling him out as
the man or whom they bad given In-
formation. A cabman who had given

Do Women Propose?
om Peck's Bun.
Now that leap year Is past and we
poor unprotected men are safe I as one
of them will endeavor to make n few re
marks on the subject as to whether
women do or do not make matches.
In the first place .the records of 00
principal cities In the United States show
but a slight Increase In the number or
marriages over the previous rear and
considerable less than In lfjA2;eo )n Jm-
tlce.to the ralr sex and for fearsome of
them might take offense and pull somo
'of the .few remaining hairs off the top of
uiy ujtbu 4 aunt positively nnuempuail'
cnlJv that the ladles do not take advnn
tago of the leap year privileges to the
extent that some writers would bnve us
believe. In fact thev make as nianv
matches In tho olf years as In years

There havo been many able writers on
this subject and nearly all agree on one
Issue namelr. that woman Is placed nt
a decided disadvantage In making her
cnoice lor lire or until ueciueu Dymo
and that one. will proceed to slate the
whs nnd wherefores or his own heller.
It Is a well known and freelr acknowl
edged fact I lint. If a young woman males
nn her mind she wants a man she wants
nun rem unuiy anu win move neaven
anu carin ip get limit anil generally suc
ceeds. Nn denbt she Is often sorry that
she does get Jiliu but she has nccoin
pllshed her Juirnoee nnd there Is consid
erable satisfaction Iu that.
What married man will deny that his
wife In those romantic hours of moon-
light walks nnd "sittings tin" did not. In
all the tender ways for which the sex has
ueen noicu lor some centuries make it
apparent 10 mm mat nts attentions were
received with nleasuro: that she liked to
have hi in come and see her and showed
her preference for hlin In mnnv little
ways In. which there was not the least
sign or Indelicacy. If a man is modest
and backward a true sensible ir r: can
soon make him feel perfectly nt home
nnd show that she apprecatea and es-
teems him andJn the course of time the
proposal - comes "eav nnd natural nnd
without creating any unpleasant feeling
In the mind of-elthei.
Who makes the propcsnlf The man
certainly speaks the few words but the
llttlo woman s the one who In reality
mauo ine proposal anu our lew peopn
will deny It.

constantly In the mountains of Mexico
since May liSl. and has mado valuable
discoveries and has the mines already
"denounced" from tho Mexican Govern-
ment as the sclentlllo discoverer nnd Is
now upon such "denouncements" lu full
and complete possession put so by the
Mexican Government. These mines nro
nprecedentedly rich regular fissure
eins. which crow richer the lower thev

For the money put In to buy and estab-
