Far to the southeast a faint plume of smoke showed a bit of rolling ground, and presently she was able to discern a toy train making its progress toward the west. Three puffs of, white steam sprang from in front of the cab, and presently there were borne to her ear three faint blasts of the whistle in fit proportion to the absurdly diminutive appearance of the locomotive. She slipped the big white apron from her trim waist and waved it above her head. Then a single short blast of the whistle announced that her signal had been seen. Presently the train vanished into another cut in the rolling prairie, but Myra did not return to her work. She remained leaning against the rough hewn doorpost, looking out across the dreary waste of land. When summer came and the waving grain covered with its velvet pile the gentle undulations, Myra liked to pre- | tend that it was an ocean across which her ship would presently come sailing to its haven of good hope. Dimly against the southern horizon a line of purple against the blue of the sky marked the commencement of the foothills, but to the north, east and west as far as the eye could see there was only the rolling prairie. Myra hated the low, flat surface even in the summer, when the ocean of grain concealed its nakedness and gave the suggestion of a mystic ocean, and in the early spring, with its broken surface and the brown grass of the fallow fields, her soul revolted at the very sight of the ground. Yet now she leaned against the doorpost and looked across the brown earth to where she knew the single line of the railroad ran. In the long summer days she had two visits from Jim Purdy, for then it was still light enough when he came past at 6 to wave a signal and to receive the answering toot that was to be heard only when the wind was from the south. At other times only the puff of steam from the whistle told of the signal These were about the' only visits Myra received. Robert Sackett was a close grained, self contained egotist, and young men were not made welcome at the Sackett quarter section. Purdy had come in -spite of the surly reception he had received from the father of the girl he loved. There had been long calls on pleasant summer nights and plans for what they would do when Jim should have completed his probation as engineer and should be given a regular run. Myra had promised to marry him when all this should come to pass. They would live at the end of the division, where they was a town of 10,000 inhabitants and where the dreary monotony of the plains was broken by the close proximity of the mountains. Yet when Jim had come to claim her hand, aglow with joy over his promotion, she had drawn back. "I can't leave dad," she explained simply. "Mother told me to take care of him, and I promised her that I would. Promises to the dead can't be broken, Jim." "But she didn't mean that you must spend your whole life and give up your own happiness just to make Mr. Sackett comfortable," the man denied. "She didn't mean that, Myra. She only meant you were to look after him in a way. Your pa would be just as well satisfied ^v^th a hired cook." Myra shook her head in negation even while she knew that what Jim said was true. In the summer when the crops were in there were half a dozen men to cook for, and from-morning until late in the night she toiled In the hot kitchen. In the whiter Sackett spent much of his time in the nearest town, some eighteen miles away, leaving Myra alone in the homestead. It was of these things she thought as she looked out across the billows of unlovely earth and wondered if perhaps. the sacrifice was not in vain. It was ' much as Jim had said—Robert Sackett would be as happy and as comfortable under the ministrations of a hired housewife. , Day after day she had stood in the doorway after Jim's train had passed, wondering if perhaps she h^d not made more than the sacrifice that her, mother had demanded and seeking some sign by which she might be guided. No sign came, however, and there was only the dreary prospect of an unending round of drudgery, with no compensating words of thanks and affection. Her hands clinched as she thought of the last two years, those years in which she might have been Purdy's wife, when she mjght have exchanged the dreary round of the quarter section for a cozy home in a town where the Rockies towered above them and all was not flat and deadly monotonous of outline. She still stood there as the familiar team attached to the heavy farm wagon crept over the edge of the-nearest billow of earth. Sackett, in. the driver's seat, gave no heed to Myra's signaling, but drove stolidly on "until at last he had turned into the home, in-closure and lumbered down from the Beat, tossing to Myra a couple of let* . • •: ters addressed in Purdy's . familiar Large or small hnes of Insurance placed handwriting. on most favorable terms.

He salved his conscience with this time, worn fiction and spent a roisterous night at the Eagle hotel. She left him to put up the tired horses, while she hurried Into the house to read her letters and prepare dinner. ; Her soul stirred at the thought of the drudgery before her young life for the sake of a man who left her alone in the sod house while he spent the night dissipating in town. Jim's pleadings were hard to resist, and as she tucked the letters into her workbox_she prayed for a sign for her guidance. • "When Sackett came in dinner was Bmoking on the table, and he pulled up his chair with a grunt of satisfaction. ; The meal was enlivened by no gossip of the town. Sackett ate in stony silence, now and then regarding his daughter from beneath his bushy eyebrows. Myra's hands clinched under the tablecloth as she noted the sign. It was a certain indication that he had to confess some indiscretion which -he knew he could not conceal from her. The last time it had been the loss of the market money in an effort to beat a card sharper at three card monte. Sackett carefully finished off a second helping of pie, but he did not push back his chair as a sign that he was through. The wrinkled cheeks reddened under the tan, and his eyes grew small and cunning. "I got to go to town again tomorrow," he announced. "I met the Widow Lusk, and she says she'll marry me. She don't think it right that you should be left alone so much with no mother to look after you." "Are you marrying the widow on my account?" asked Myra coldly. "The widow is a fine woman," declared Sackett, a twinkle of appreciation in his beady eyes. "Of course I'll admit that I kinder like her, but she's right when she says you're left too much alone. I'll drive in tomorrow and bring her out.". "I'll go in with you," announced Myra as she gathered up the plates before her and rose from the table. "I was ,-praying for a sign, but I didn't think that the Widgw Lusk would be the sign." "Sign for what?" asked Sackett curiously. ^'A sign that it would be right for me to marry Jim," explained Myra. "He wrote the other day that^ny time I decided to say 'yes' I onl$ had to build two bonfires' where he could see them and be in town the next night when he pulled the eastbound overland over the division. I'm going out to fix the fires now so he'll be expecting me tomorrow." That night the passengers on the eastbound overland sprang from their seats in alarm as the whistle shrieked demoniacally, and then they braced themselves for the shock of the collision which never came. They could not know that the young engineer had received a sign from Myra and that he knew that her slavery .was at an end. I? DUCHESS OF SUTHERLAND. Whose Husband Has Given Her a Palace For the Housing of Cripples. One of the most beautiful and most magnificent palaces in England has been turned into a factory so unique that it deserves as much distinction as the castle. The palace is the gift of the Duke of Sutherland to the cripples in whose education and training his beautiful wife has long been interested. ' Recently the various projects and enterprises which she has forwarded threatened to overwhelm her, and she decided to turn her pet philanthropy Into a business. She organized a company which she called the Duchess of Sutherland's Crippled "Guild, limited. Perhaps it was the duchess' charm, perhaps it was the warning in the DUCHESS OF BUTHEBIIAND. word "limited," but the capital for the iiew company was all subscribed within a few minutes. Then the duke offered Trentham Hall to be used as a factory and .school. For generations Trentham Hall has been one of the show places in England. The palace is now in a state of preparation. When it is complete, about 300 workers in pottery, leather and wood will be. employed there. The duchess is enthusiastic over her new position—that of the first feminine head of a public business in England. Although it means a lot of work, she will herself attend to the duties of her office.—Delineator., ^ j Stakes Cooking Easy A. R. LEETE, THOMPSONVILLE. • >: -• When to Call on Brides. There need never be any doubt about answering a -wedding invitation and the mode of procedure later, for unless It Is requested that an answer be gent at once no acknowledgment of the cards is necessary until the day set for the wedding. „ Then, whether the ceremony: be In tho morning, after-, noon or evening. a iwoman attending it ^Dr&st.go^-high.neck for the day, of course, and decollete for evening. What a man wears is governed accordingly. If one has been bidden to a reception at the house after the marriage, it is customary if this is in the daytime to leave a visiting card, as at any tea. None is left for the bride and bridegroom. To be exact in this particular, a married woman going to the reception would leave one of her cards and two of her husband's if the invitations were sent out in the names of the bride's parents. If for any reason the invitations are issued by one person only, as in the case of one parent being dead or a guardian being the person who sends them, only one card of the married woman and one of her husband's would be left. For an evening reception no cards are required. If for any reason it is impossible to attend the ceremony or reception to which one has been invited-, visiting cards, following the rule given, should be sent on the day of the wedding, they being addressed to the person or personsr sending the invitations. Whether present or absent from the marriage or reception a call within two weeks after the wedding is imperative. During this visit cards are left as at a reception. An unmarried woman does not leave a card for the father of the bride unless he alone give the invitation. Good form now demands that such an invitation from a man requires a visiting card afterward from all whom he honored, and an unmarried woman would post hers or send it to the house by a servant during the regular calling hours. A married woman would leave hers and her husband's in the same way. If the card that comes in the wedding invitation bears simply her new name and that of her husband, with the address of their new home, this means that she will be at home any afternoon informally. If she has "days" they are the same as a "tea," except for the fact that the bride- is expected to return these calls. Any one going to her days or sending cards makes a formal call or shows a desire to do so, and it is for her to respond. Railroads. H ARTFORD AND SPRINGFIELD STREET RAILWAY CO.

Human thought moves in cycles, but who would ever imagine that modern human invention could be discounted in this twentieth century and invidiously compared with the old fashioned custom of a hundred and fifty years ago? This .was the practical result of a discussion at the meeting of the Illuminating Engineering, society held in the Grand Pacific hotel. Chicago, last month. Oculists whom the society had invited to be present declared unanimously that the methods of illumination employed today were inferior to those employed by our great-great-grandparents, in so far as their effect on the eyes is concerned. In a review of the matter Dr. H. H. Seabrook of New York wrote: "Our country leads the world apparently in the brilliancy of its artificial illumination and certainly leads the world in ocular exhaustion, discomfort and congestion. Both here and abroad oculists agree that the kerosene burner is the least harmful artificial illumi-nant. The incandescent lamp has given rise to more chronic eye degeneration and disturbance than any other light used for near work." In explanation of the action of the incandescent lamp on the eye Dr. George F. Suker stated: "The intense light of the filament acting on the retina sets up a low grade of inflammation, which, though it comes on slowly and may never he severe, still defies all efforts to cure it. We have so much light tljat -overexhaustion results and the eye cannot recuperate." • -- ROCKVILLE DIVISION.
