away, he said: “But, sweet, you don’t

"Oh, my darling! How lovely you

“Why cannot I take her away, and
give her the things that are the birth-
right of such as she? I ought to wish
for a rich lover for her If I weren’t
such a selfish wretch. But there’s no
danger that I’ll ever make any such
wish,” he finished his reflections as
she stood before him.

I wanted to gaze at you as you came
down the path," he said, as he took

she said sweetly Ignoring his question.
"And if you had failed me 1 should
have been broken hearted.”
"Why didn't you mention that it
was a matter of such importance?
But, of course, you knew that the
merest bint from the queen was
enough to bring me any time."
"I wonder,’’.she said tilting her head
back to watch a bird above her, "what
lover first called his lady a queen.
They all do it now.”
"You seem quite familiar with the
ways of lovers, he suggested.
“Oh, I am," was the cheerfully
prompt reply. "I think 1 could count
on quite half of the young men of the
village. There’s about a dozen of
them, so you needn't laugh. And be-
sides, there are the summer boarders,

of that despised race called the sum-
"No-o. I don’t think I shall. In-
deed, none of them have asked me.
You know a girl is in a very awkward
situation when she tries to make her
plans. She does not know when these
absurd men will speak. But no mat-
ter how Imperative it is that she have
things settled she must meekly clothe
herself with maiden modesty, and
wait.” She was watching a bird on a
distant bush now, and did not look at
him as she spoke. After a moment,
frightened by her boldness and his si-
lence, she stole a quick glance at him.
He. too, had turned his eyes away
and his mouth was set in hard lines.
Before he had left the village there
had been a boy and girl betrothal be-
tween them. She knew the security
of his love. But of late he had ceased
to speak of marriage. He felt that It
was unfair to bind her when his future
was so uncertain.
"John,” she half sobbed, putting her
hand on his arm, “don’t mind It It's
only nonsense, you know. Don’t look
He took her in his arms, murmuring
soothing words, and voicing his undy-
ing love and hope. Even amidst her
exultation at the success of her Inno-
cent designing she found time to won-
der at this outburst of passion from
her self-contained lover.
“Darling,” he said at length; “I
ought not say these things to you. I
could scarcely promise you bread and
butter. I have no right to tell my love
when I cannot ask you to marry me

us be quite Irresponsible, which is the

She covered his lips with her fingers
until he was ready to be irresponsible.
When John left the garden, secretly
as be had come, it seemed to him that
the things that had troubled him must
have been a part of some previous ex-
istence. The brown farmhouse where

An account of the extraction of salt
from earth* obtained near the Atbara
river. In the Soudan, is found In the
second report of the Wellcome Re-

Mr. Tursteg, of the Egyptian SurveJ

different kinds of earths, one contain-
ing what they call “male” and the
other “female” salt. Says the writer
of the report:
“Neither of these. It was stated, was
edible if taken alone, but If the earths
were mixed they furnish a salt of good
Curiously enough, the belief of the
natives is confirmed by chemical an-

"The ‘male’ salt Contains such a
large proportion of sodium sulphate
(‘Glauber’s salt’) as would render It
of little use as a table salt Similarly,
the ’female' salt contains an excessive
proportion of calcium chlorid. By
combining the two In about the pro-
portion of say two parts of male to
one part of female, the two impuri-
ties would unite to form calcium sul-
phate. and the proportion of sodium
chlorid (common salt) would be not-
ably increased. On boiling down, the
calcium sulphate would separate in
