Parcells John Pearson was distinctly annoyed, He would not have believed Eugenia could be so unreasonable. It was bad enough to lose Havens, who was the best stenographer he ever had, but when he finally secured another who could do satisfactory work, to have Eugenia object because the girl was young and pretty was enough to make a man lose all patience. He strove to. appease bis fiancee's wrath by pointing out how inferior in beauty and grace the new stenographer appeared to him in comparison with herself. He tried to appeal to her reason, her pride, for faith in him, but to little, purpose, "You need not trouble to call again or to communicate with me until you have discharged that girl," was the ultimatum, and Pearson went away, angry and indignant, anathematizing all women and their silly, unreasonable jealousy. Miss Anthony was not often uptfea sonable and had had Uttle occasion tor jealousy, She hardly could have ex-plained it herself, but her annoyance about the girl and her resentment toward her lover bad begun when she had asked the name of the new employee and John bad replied, "Anna Darling," The tipy flames had been fanned and increased by every word of praise for Miss Darling that the unconscious Pearson had stupidly uttered until she could bear It no longer. She magnified his satisfaction with the girl's work into love for the girl herself, and she felt for the moment quite justified in demanding her discharge, But with the next day's light Miss Anthony's good sense and Jove of fair play reasserted itself. "How silly I was," she thought She resolved to send him a little note or a telephone message, but decided to wait until evening. He was to take her to the opera, and on the way she would confess her unreasonableness, The evening passed, and no John and no message to explain his absence. Ten o'clock, 10:30! "I won't be foolish," she thought firmly. I'll call him up by phone and tell him I want to say good night," She had often done this when It had not been possible for John to come to her. She smiled happily as she rang the bell and called- for. the Pearson,, residence, John lived with his brother,'and she knew the family had gone away. She recognized the housekeeper's voice in reply to her call, but her face fell at the message. Mr. John had not been home, and Mrs. Barnes could get no reply to frequent calls over the phone to the office. The next morning Miss Anthony called Mrs. Barnes again, with similar results, Mr. John did not come home, and there was evidently no one at his office. .• Miss Anthony was essentially a woman of action. She dressed herself in a most becoming street costume and a half hour later was entering the great office building on Congress street. Pearson's office was closed, the door locked. "He wasn't there all day yesterday," volunteered the elevator boy. "But surely some one was," insisted Miss Anthony. "The young lady"— "She came in the morning, but went away again immediately," he answered. Miss Anthony was quick to resolve and equally quick to execute. She consulted the directory and took a car for Arlington. At the door of a neat little cottage she paused. Yes, there was the name, Darling, on the doorplate. What could she say to the girl even if she found her? Did she really expect to believe that she and John— Then she lifted her head proudly. Was she going to be silly again? Something had happened to John, and Miss Darling might be able to aid her in learning what it was. When Miss Darling entered the room Miss Anthony hardly could restrain the impulse to take her in her arms, such a pretty, timid looking little thing— hardly more than a child. Her eyes were visibly red with weeping, and when' Miss .Anthony asked her if she had been at work the day before her face colored painfully. Miss Anthony explained enough of the situation for Miss Darling to understand the reason for her visit, and then Miss Darling told her own story hurriedly^ I have been with Mr. Pearson nearly a month and supposed my work was entirely, satisfactory.. I went to work yesterday morning as usual, but I had hardly entered the office when the telephone bell rang. On answering it I found it was Mr. Pearson speaking. He said that be should require my services no longer and would mail me a check for two months'Balary." She paused, choking back a sob. Miss Anthony blushed with shame and regret. "I left the office immediately, of course. I cannot understand it, for I was at work on some papers that Mr. Pearson was very anxious to have finished this week—work that another stenographer could not well take up. And"—8he hesitated—"as yet I have not received the check," • Miss Anthony spoke rapidly and with decision. "Miss Darling, I am convinced that there is some mistake. I know Mr. Pearson was satisfied with your work." "Do you think,"'asked Miss Darling eagerly, "that it was iigt Mr. Pearson— that it was a hoax?" •1 hardly know Whiat to think," - returned Miss Anthony evasively, "but I am so sure that Mr. Pearson lsjrieased with your work and wishes to retain you la his employ that I am going to ask you to return to the office now with me. Perhaps in some way we may learn something of him." The two girls were standing before Pearson's door, and Miss Darling was ^Ifes," answered Miss Anthony quiet? ly. "Can you tell me if he will be in today?" "I think not. There are several imr portant cases before the grand jury this term, and its sitting may last three or four days more."' - Miss Anthony recognized her informant as a young architect who had an office in the same building. "I do not understand," she saidji "What has Mr. Pearson got to do with the grand jury ?" RSDAT>JANIJA.R!;125, 1906, XXYI.. NO. 40: Railroads. H ARTFORD AND SPRINGFIELD STREET RAILWAY CO. by United States Marshal Brown to serve." As Miss Anthony's face betok- gear's growth cut back to a uniform ened no enlightenment, he went on: "When the grand jury was polled yes terday there were three absentees, and in order to carry on the business it wad necessary to fill those vacancies. The absent men are sick, and It would greatly retard the work of the government if the jury had to be adjourned until they recovered." Miss Anthony regained her poise. "Would Mr. Pearson have to go if he did not wish?" in "stately surprise. "Yes. Any citizen is liable to such draft." . "But—but his own business?" interposed Miss Darling. "Quite a secondary matter in the eyes of the law," replied the young man. "And in such a case is no message sent to the citizen's friends?" questioned Miss Antlidny. "Certainly. If Mr. Pearson had any clerk or secretary in his office the dep Uty marshal would likely notify that iperson, and Mr, Pearson could send message to his family if he' has one," Miss Anthony and Miss Darling exchanged glances. They knew that Mr. Pearson had no family and at the time of bis unwelcome seizure he had no clerk, and Miss Anthony knew why no message had been sent to her. ; "And Mr. Pearson cannot come away. He is—he is held there?" "Held by the government," he replied smilingly. Miss Anthony thanked him courteous ly, and he passed on. Miss Darling unlocked the door, and the two girls entered the office. "Is the work Mr. Pearson wanted done al) stenographic work?" Miss Anthony asked. "Not all. There are some abstracts to be copied and"— "I shall help you," with gentle deci sion. ' When the grand jury adjourned United States Marshal Brown handed a note to Juryman Pearson. Miss Darling and I have your work nearly done," read the astonished Pearson. "Please come to me as soon as you are released. I think we had better arrange matters so that if you are held by the government again you will have some one to whom a message; must be Removing the Shutters. An uptown man who may be designated as Mr. Blank was asked by his wife the other day to aid in removing Inside shutters from windows throughout the house so that they could be washed. Being in a hurry, he asked his better half to defer the matter until his return from the office. "I'll do it myself," was her retort. "Don't," was Mr. B.'s counsel as he departed; "women don't understand such work." This of course only more firmly decided Mrs. Blank to go ahead, and when Blank returned that night he found the shutters down. His wife was nursing several lacerated fingers, but she wore a triumphant air. "The screwdriver slipped once or twice," she explained in response to his inquiring glance at her bandaged digits. "Screwdriver, slipped!" repeated Mr. B. in. a dazed tone. "Great snakes, woman! You don't mean to say you unscrewed all the shutter hinges?" "Of course," said his wife complacently. "What other way could I get the shutters down?" For answer Blank lifted a shutter and pulled the pin out of one of the hinges, showing that the taking down of each shutter only involved the removal of two pins. When he figured that there! were ten pairs of shutters and each pair required the driving of sixteen screws to put them up he swore while his wife wept.—Philadelphia Record. THE HOME VINE. Training and Prnnlnff, Especially Under Northern Conditions. By W. H. RAGAN. Starting with a young vine at the Mr. Pearson was seized yesterday md of lta ^ond year in the vineyard, ivith its two branches or canes of that length of about two feet, the. trellis is uilt with Its lower wire at the same height as the stem of the vine, or about two feet from the ground. The E When Modjeaka Flayed JPsurce. Count Boyenta, Mme. Modjeska's husband, was arranging with Senator Tabor for Modjeska's first appearance in Denver, and the founder of dramatic art In Denver asked what parts she played. "Well," said the count, "there is 'Mary Stuart.'" "Who wrote it?" asked Tabor. ". .. •; "Schiller/' said the count. v "Is he a first class dramatist?" Asked Tabor, a "Surely, surely," said the count "He Is most Illustrious." 5 "Humph I Never heard of him," commented Taboftv"; "What else does she do?" . s*a§ • " 'As You Like It,' 'Antony and Cleopatra,' 'Macbeth'^ "Who wrote them?'!;. » ^ \ " J-4 "Shakespeare." ."How's he? Good writer?" l||ig||ll "Excellent; excellent." "Well," said TabOr ruminatively, "those fellows may be all right as t authors, but they ain't well enough known to suit the people out here. What we want Is something popular, something that, everybody's heard of. I tell you what you do—you get her to give us something Of Hoyf s!"—Harper's Week- The farmers of the country do not take kindly to the labor unions. At the session of the 'national grange at Atlantic City recently .they passed a resolution declaring • 'that we as American oitizens believe it is every man's privilege to work as many hours as he wills for pay, that energy, thrift and aotivity are entitled to encouragement, and should oommand rightful oompehsa> tion for servioes rendered.'' Reduced to simple every day language this.means that the grange believes a man has the right to work eight hours or eighteen hours if he is paid accordingly. An T PIGS. 1 AND A. ranches of the vine grown the second ear are turned down and fastened orizontally to the first wire of the ellls In opposite directions (Fig. 1). I The third year the shoots that spring from these horizontal arms at each node or joint are to be trained upward find made fast to the other wires of the trellis, which are about one foot ^bove each other. Each of these upright shoots may be allowed to produce one or two bunches of grapes this jjear, and there should be about three ahoots from each arm of the vine, or six in all. | In'the autumn of the third year the \ifne is fully established with its permanent upright stem and its two horizontal arms, each with its three or four shoots or canes trained upward to the top wire of the trellis, each of which lias borne one or two bunches of grapes. When autumn frosts suspend vegetation the vine is ready for its annual pruning before entering upon its winter rest and preparatory to bearing a full crop Its fourth year. It will then appear as in Fig. 2. Each alternate upright cane on the* SofifSrSrrrs-®aitTi&Jcti[t dowii to a short spur at a point near the arm and the others cut off even with the top wire of the trellis. The following spring a single shoot is allowed to grow from each of the spurs on the horizontal arms, to be trained vertically to the wires above, and the eyes (from six to ten) on the canes that are left from the previous pruning will send out the fruit bear- PIGS. 3 AND 4. lag shoots for the current year. These fruit bearing shoots are to be trained on lie wire's of the trellis and may be allowed to bear one or two bunches of fruit eachi The vine pruned as directed, with its fruit, in the fall of the fourth year from planting will appear as shown In Fig. 4. : ' When Painting Iron. r According to the London Painter and Decorator, the following method will prevent paint peeling from iron in flakes: First wash the surface with soap and water, rinse and,, let dry. When dry go over it with a Stiff brush dipped In linseed oil. When this be* comes "tacky" the paint can be applied. If the object is small and of such a nature that heating will not hurt it raise the temperature until a drop of oil brought In contact with it "smokes." Go over the surface carefully with the raw oil and let it cool.- It is now ready to receive the paint. With large objects which cannot be heated the main point is to apply the oil as hot as possible, the nearer to boiling the better. Farm*r«' National Congreu.
