One morning nt long after this di .ridedly

lieatherleigli grounds I found myself ready
to leavj the HaiL
Peggy wlto had ether grown tired of
coaxing me to prolong my visit or presumed
further pr-ssii;g wan useless which indeed
would have been brought Miriam's portrait
from-the ga-.iery. aud wrapping it care-
fully . with many a caress and crooning
word of endearment gave it into my care.
I considered this quite a feat to get pos-
- session of a portrait from this o.d Hall and
showered my uufeigned thanks on Peggy's
devoted head in consequenoe.
I will da -ill in my power to get her to
return if 'only for a year's visit" I prom-
ised the tvro aged servants at my leave-
taking and intend to keep my promise good.
Nat for worlds would I prove false to those
old Irish dweilers at Heatherleigh by not
trying to persuade Mir ism to cotue back
if for nott.'.ng else than to see them.
Hark! what is that? Olju it is tbe ting;
ting a ling of the bell foe luncheon and
O.adys cepcets my cousinly presence in the
pleasant iittie breakfast-roorm shortly.
CousIq Gladys' luncheons' are something
famous for a suburban cottage with their
deh.-iou- cake and fruit arrangement to
get her with tneirsmattenugof cold meats
and narked with spiced wmes.
She is in h.gh glee this week for we are
to take a little run up into tbe dear old
Cotswald hills. Gladys and I ana she is
chipper as a bird in con sequence.
1 sl?;l enjoy the trip to be sure but the
secret of Anau's letter and the pleasant
kiiow'ndge of having met him oc.ipse all
the hippy anticipation I might feel in a run
aiiioio- the Cot-wold hihs. 1 hud myself
iost in' speculation as to what Miriam will
do ai'd say when I give Allan's letter into
her Lands and tell ber I met him accident-
al -not providentially at Heatherleigh.
W th such weighty secrets in niy posses-
sion from both sides of the water no won-
der 1 am beginning to feel myself a person
of uncommon importance. And tbe letter
and portrait in my keeping either of Which
is wtrih a ransom to tbe owner I presume
male me feci more like an amuassauor-than
shntily a guest. It seems to me that tr.y com-
ing to see Gladys has lost its identity be-
come as it were a secondary object or es-
us for the grander .possibilities.

Gladys paving some friends in London
and tvisbiag to- see them also we spent a
couple of days there. Fromj there we start-
ed for the delightful country trip. It would
have been more to mylfldn to have gone
in midsummer but the summer was p&st
the opportunity had gone by and the upper
Thames had been left until liow.
No matter; wo found ourselves at the
Great Western Faddington Station one fine
morning with lunch-hamper in hand.
Gladys remembers the lunch ibem if nothing
else en route for Taplow. j
Away we roll out of thoj big dty and
across tbejqulet poacefulncsb of a beauti-
ful stretch of country. The fields however
were unfortunately rather brown clad -bare
it betas: top late in the season for itekl dais-
ies or bright and blooming hedge rows. It
seemed toj sne a kind of solemp quiet loneli-
ness pervaded the landscape and I ceased
to took f roin my compartment and shut my
eyes to tle outstdo glimpses of the real
world busying myself in delving into the
impossible and perhaps possible ideal
world of y owu.

that our ride on the Thames from Maiden-

I met him oa my way to the wharf and he wound rutting the cord which sus
waked with me down to the pier. "You
are off now" be said and his faoe was
something to see.
A strange yearning hopeful expression
lighted up those beautiful eyes as he gavo
me his hand in a last good-bye. And I
knew that he at least was glad to see mo
co. Why? Because a part perhaps the
whole of hi- iifc-happiness depended on tho
message I was to deliver.
Somciinu-s 1 half believed that Miriam
will put this message in the grate and shut
her heart against ail the advances of the
light of love. It would doubtless be just
like her to mope out her existence sorrow-
ing for th iM that need it not.

"where the sunset can linger over the be-

Well she need not wait long. But the
sea grows calmer; the heavy threatening
clouds are breaking away and the sunlight
is glinting through I goon deck. I wonder
if this sudden change to fair weather is a
forerunner of a happy change in Hiriam.
How I wish with all my heart as I cling to

A glorious morning: the air crisp and
char; a calm blue sky with an occasional
white airy cloud floating high and quietly
as if no storm hail ever entered within its
realm and a bright smooth sea.
Such is the loveliness of the autumn day

only iicme-comiug souls are.

J Its all very well to talk of the pleasures
J of an -in van trip-' and the grandeur of the
vovage. but we found it monotonous euough
after ihe first day out. Perhaps for young
persons given to being very sentimental or
inclined to flirtation the hours between
shores may slip off ''satin shod" but to
those having too much practical sense for
either the one or the other I should say
Well here we are and we glide into tho

But as I said when I started I have no
friends to bid me welcome only as a '-fellow

come ashore alone. The Stanleys are met
by a pretty turn-out which whirls them
away rapidly to their line residence on

X Scene Which liroUxht Tears to tho Byes
A frail little woman with her arms
about a white couln and two children
?linging to the folds of a much-worn
ires was a sight which made a littlo
r-rowd of waiting passengers at one of
the depots shudder. It was a pitiful

Pitiful because tho
tears. Ghastly because tho plain box i
contained the clay of what hail been a
few hours before a laughing fair-faced
habe whose life -was a part of its moth-
er's. The little woman was coming west to
meet a prospecting husband who had
hosen Detroit as a place to establish
his home. landed down with bundles
and with three little tots whose ages
seemed aboub one she began the jour-
ney. During the trip one child was
taken suddenly sick. The intense
pains threw tbe little one into
spasms. The mother was totally
helpless. She could but sit silent
listen to the cries of her pet and
smother her sorrow for its suffering.

sengers not realizing what a aad little
tragedy had been enacted wondered at
the woman's tears and possibly vented
a sigh of passing sympathy.
When the train reached Toledo a cor-
oner was called. He was as the typical
coroner and had had the last drop of
sympathy distilled from his heart by
continual contact with tbe blaek side of
life. He sent for a white box. nut the
little one in it still dressed in its every- j
day clothes and sent the broken-hearted
mother on her way to Detroit.
Shej was without means and at the
station went to the baggage-car and ;
elaimed the box. She came with it ta '
the door of the depot and nonplused the
criers! by asking tbe way to the nearest
undertaker's. The men. were touched
by the pitiful scene and offered her a
.carriage. She was driven away and the
rough-faced bystanders were serious aad
thoughtful. .Detroit Evening News.

The Hull Senses of Criminal. '
Some Italian observers have been re-
cently testing the senses of criminals-;
aad they find these duller than ia the
average of poople. Signor Ottolenghi

sense of smell in criminals' and he now
afllrms tho same for taste which he
tested by applying bitter and sweet sub-
stances (strychnine and saechrine) ia.
j dilute solution to the tongue. He finds
j also the taste of the habitual criminal
: lees acute than that of the casual offend-
er and a slightly more acute taste in
male than in female criminals. Exaori-
roents with regard to bearing were made
by Signor Gradenigo (also in Turing
