Angel was eight years old, but he scarcely looked six, with his long golden curls and ethereal beauty. In his velvet suits he suggested some child of the Little Lord Fauntleroy period held over Into an age of Buster Browns. Mrs. Moultrie was possessed of a theory that as the child is named so the tastes incline, and she had set her heart upon his being a painter. Angel's splotchy water colors were carefully preserved in a huge portfolio against the day they should become the priceless mementos of a world famous painter's youth. The only child of a widowed mother. Angel was about as badly spoiled as a boy could be and yet escape the reform school, but his seraphic countenance and his big, innocent eyes had enabled him to successfully lie out of complicity In many juvenile crimes. Though the small boys of the block invariably explained that Angel was the instigator of all the mischief, even their own fond mothers believed them to be in a conspiracy to destroy the fair fame of the model child. Angel was quick to perceive his popularity, and with unerring instinct he found his way to those apartments where candy and cake were to be had. He seemed to know when callers with offerings of candy had visited the different young women, and his own calls were scheduled for the following day. His one exception was Nannie Dim-mick. Nannie seldom entertained callers of the sort Angel most approved. No five pound boxes of sweets lay upon her table, and no great masses of flowers scented the room, yet Angel liked best of all to visit at the Dim-mick apartment, for there was a certain tenderness in Nannie Dimmick's manner of which Angel approved most highly. "She always looks like she's going to cry," he had told his mother in an endeavor to discuss the girl's peculiar charm. "She looks like she's going to cry, but she doesn't. She just holds you tight in her arms, and you feel glad and sorry all at once." Clearly this blending of emotions appealed to Angel, for he was a regular visitor to the Dimmick apartment, and the girl found odd comfort In his prattle. Nannie sorely needed comfort, for the look of sadness in her eyes deepened as the weeks sped by with no word from Arthur Ryder. When he had come to her with his face aflame with happiness to tell her that he had found his chance at last, that the firm had decided to send him on a tour of the African and Asiatic countries to introduce their wares, it had seemed that fate, with kindly hands, had swept barriers from their path. "It will be the making of me," Arthur had explained. "I start at Cape Town and work mp the east coast of Africa, then cross to Asia and. so up to China. It will take about eighteen months, but if I make a success I shall be taken into the firm and we can be married, dear." Mrs. Dimmick had refused to listen to an engagement. Time enough for that when Arthur came back, she. had told them. An engagement of a year and a half would be worse than use- It would deprive Nannie of many pleasures, and no formal engagement was really necessary. If they both were of the same mind when Arthur should return there would be no opposition to a short engagement and. an early marriage. And so Arthur had gone on his long journey with gladness in his heart, for Nannie had assured, him that it did not need the formality of ring and announcement to ratify the promptings of her heart First had come glowing letters from London and. from Cape Town, letters that breathed of hope and love, then blank silence. For more than a year not a letter in the familiar handwriting had been received, though an inquiry ,at the office of the firm elicited the Information that Mr. Ryder was not only alive, but exceedingly well, aqcording to-his reports to the home office. Mrs. Dimmick had stormed at what she had termed his discourtesy,- bat Nannie would not listen to her mother's urgings that she go more into society and forget the affront In spite of everything she still loved Ryder, though pride forbade her to confess that fact even to herself, and she had no heart for the bustle and stir of social events. She preferred to.stay at home and tell Angel the fairy stories in which he delighted. She was telling for the hundredth time one of his favorite tales when Mrs. Dimmick came into the room with an envelope. - ...V/."'-... "A cablegram for you," she announced coldly. With trembling hands Nannie opened the blue and white envelope and drew, out the slip. Her expression changed as she read. "It is from Arthur," she said quietly. "He is sailing from Japan." "Much good may it do him," was the unsympathetic reply. "This Is a nice time to hear from him. It's more than a year since he stopped writing. I suppose that you will let him give you some flimsy excuse and be,as crazy about him as ever." ' .. "It will take a very excellent excuse to explain his long silence," said Nannie dully. "Unless he l^as some legitimate reason to offer I shall refuse J®, Vseehim.'* £ i Gently she put Angel from her lap and slipped off to cher ;room. Angel the. last of the little cakea brought in for his refreshment and took his departure. Some weeks later Angel, playing about the lobby, observed a stranger enter and drew near to the telephone desk to learn his destination. Angel was Interested in young and good looking strangers as a possible increase in the number of purveyors of candy. His face took on an expression of surprise as the operator returned an answer that Miss Dimmick was not at home. "She was there a little while ago," insisted Angel, selfishly Interested In the stranger's success. The operator flashed an angry glance at him, which caused Angel to subside, and the stranger left the lobby with an air of dejection far different from the springy step with which he had entered. .. The next day he came again and asked that a note be sent upstairs. He waited for the answer and read It before he turned to leave. Angel followed him to the street. "I say," he began, "are you the fellow Miss Nannie used to like?" "Why?" asked Ryder, parrying question with question. - "Because she's sore on you because yet didn't write," continued Angel. "Are you the fellow?" Ryder nodded, and after a moment's hesitation Angel continued: "On the level, I didn't mean to do nothing, but I took the letters for my "You are collecting letters?" asked Ryder, hardly comprehending the confession. "Stamps," explained the Angel. "They were bully stamps. I didn't suppose Miss Nannie would care. Ma gets lots of letters that she throws into the fire without reading, so I hooked the ones with the funny stamps. I guess that's why she looks like she always wants to cry. I didn't think of It that way until the other day. Then I waited until I saw whether you made It up." Ryder's face grew black as at last he realized what the boy was saying, but Angel's eyes were again his salvation, and the scowl vanished. "Go up and tell Miss Dimmick what you have told me," commanded Ryder. "Tell her that I wrote every steamer in spite of the fact I received no replies. Tell her that I have been half frantic. Have you the letters that you can show?" "Burned 'em," explained Angel— "that is, all except the stamps. They had no business leaving the mall out on the table where any one could swipe 'em. The elevator boy got most of the picture cards. I don't collect post cards," he added virtuously as though this were some extenuation of his fault Ryder paced the sidewalk while Angel went to make his confession. It was a long quarter hour, but at last Angel, his face white and scared, appeared on the steps. "I fixed it for you," he announced, "but Mrs. Dimmick heard what I said, and I bet I get the licking of my life." And he sat down on the steps while yet he could sit to ponder on the fatal fascinations of a fad. The Log Line. Officers on the coastwise and foreign steamship lines are not limited to their regular duties, but are expected to answer the questions of curious passengers besides. Sometimes, however, the passengers take the matter into their own hands and Instruct others more ignorant than themselves, The purser on a well known liner tells of a lady who had made a passage before and who in consequence felt a superior knowledge of maritime things. Several ladies were grouped In the stern, this one among them, when their attention was attracted by the log with its long line attached to the rail. "Why, what can that be?" inquired one of the party. "That ?" said the knowing one. "Well, you see the vessel has to keep In communication with the land, and In order to tell just how far they have got on the passage they keep one end tied to the dock, and by looking at the amount: of line paid out they can tell jvlst how far they are from the other "Oh I" exclaimed the other after this lucid explanation. "Well, I have always heard of the log, but I never knew what one was before. Thank you so much!"—Youth's Companion. An. English paper gives a list of what it terms "the fourteen mistakes of life." While there are undoubtedly other mistakes than those mentioned, the list Is a fairly comprehensive one. < Jt is a great mistake to set up our own standard of right and wrong and Judge people accordingly, to measure the enjoyment of others by our own, to expect uniformity of opinion In this world, to look for judgment and experience in youth, to endeavor to mold all dispositions alike, to look for perfection in our own actions, to worry ourselves and others- with what can-not be remedied, not to yield in immaterial matters, not to alleviate fill that needs alleviation as far as lies in our power, not to make allowances for the Infirmities of others, to consider everything Impossible that we cannot perform, to believe only what our finite minds can grasp, to expect to be able to understand everything. And the last and greatest mistake of all is to live for time alone, when any moment may launch us Into eternity. "A fool and his money are soon parted,- my son." . "Yes, but parting is such sweet sorrow, pa."—Exchange.

These Were the Preoursors of the Brilliant Thoroughfares of Today—The Tax on Chimneys That Gave Orleans Its First Public To one walking abroad at night In New York or any other American city, traversing highways made as light as day Uy artificial Illumination, it seems beyond the realms of the possible to believe that only within the last hundred Tears street lighting has come into general use and that not until the introduction of gas has it been enjoyed on an extensive scale and sufficient light been obtained to make outdoor walking after dark anything but a disagreeable experience. Yet such are the* facts. The age of light in city illumination began practically at the same time that the age of light in popular government dawned—with the American Revolution. At'first glance there is apparently no connection between popular government and street lighting, but~Close reading of history shows the relation to have been Intimate. The American Revolution gave freedom to the common people and made all men equal before the law. Before that era' privileged classes held sway, and the common people were deprived of many rights. Among them was the right to walk the streets at night When curfew rang all except the privileged classes were obliged to stay indoors, and as the privileged always had plenty of slaves or other servants to. carry torches or lanterns for them when they were called abroad at night the need for street lighting was not felt, at least by the ruling classes. The demand for street lighting was met first by lanterns burning tallow candles, then by lamps fed with fish or vegetable oils. These gave place to kerosene oil lamps on the discovery of petroleum, and they in turn to gas. The history of the United States shows that in only a few of the large cities was any attempt made to light the streets prior to the Revolution. In New York, Boston and Philadelphia a few open flame oil lamps were maintained at the public expense in the principal thoroughfares, but in the majority of towns and In the cities outside of the principal streets night wayfarers .either carried lanterns or had their way lighted by llnkboys "bearing-torches. New Orleans, one of the oldest cities in America, depended upon lanterns and llnkboys entirely until 1792, when the Spanish governor, Baron Carondelet, Inaugurated a crude system of street lighting. Louisiana, It will be remembered, was still a Spanish province when the United States gained Its independence and did not come into the Union till some years later. A writer in the New Orleans Picayune recalls the Interesting fact of Carondelet's innovation in that city. One of the new governor's first suggestions to the cabildo, or council, was to provide street lamps and watchmen —the police of those days—to protect the lives of citizens venturing out after nightfall. The suggestion was approved, but the question of raising money to pay for the lamps and oil and the wages of the watchmen proved a serious problem. The yearly revenue of the city of New Orleans in those days did not exceed $7,000, and none of It could be spared for such a luxury as street lighting. Baron Carondelet, however, proved himself a financier as well as a progressive governor. He decided that every householder who could afford a chimney on his house could afford to pay something toward lighting the streets. At his suggestion the cabildo levied a tax of $1.12% on every chimney In the city, and this supplied the funds which gave the Louisiana metropolis its first street lamps. This system of street lighting prevailed In New Orleans and other American cities far into the nineteenth century. Many men now living can recall the lamplighters of the old oil lamp days, and in some villages to this day oil or gasoline lamps are as yet the only means of street lighting. It has been remarked often that If our Revolutionary sires could revisit this country today they would" be frightened at our big cities, tall buildings, the steam engine, telegraph, telephone and other modern inventions. . It is doubtful whether* the turning of night into jflay by modern methoda_of street lighting would not impress them more. No sharper contrast could be provided than the dark, rogue Infested lane known as the Broad Way In Washington's time and' the gorgeous glitter of the same thoroughfare today in that part known as the Great White Way. Instead of inky darkness, a glare brighter than noonday; Instead of narrow footpaths and muddy highway, broad stone promenades and smooth asphalt pavements; instead of the sedan chair and its llnkboys, the automobile land Its searchlight; Instead of the lonely watchman with his solemn "All's well," "throngs of gayly dressed, merry men and women seeking the theaters and restaurants. It would Indeed appear like another world to the men used to lanterns, wax candles and the curfew.—Gas Logic. ~ THE GOLF BALL How Gravity Is Foiled In It. Flight Through the Air. Professor Petrie Guthrie Tait had little skill, at golf, but a vast deal at science. Among the "many problems to which he applied his . genius were some concerning that apparently simple thing, the flight of a golf ball. And here he found difficulties so baffling that though he worked over them for years and called on other scientists for assistance, many mysteries still remained. One question that he solved, however, is of curious interest The force of gravity is the one force we know as most constant and inevitable. To defeat gravity is almost to suspend one of nature's laws. In his-iRYestigations Professor Tait suddenly became , aware that gravity was de-feated- by the golf ball. The fact admitted no doubt On timing the flight of the ball he discovered that it remained in the air almost twice as long as it should have under the influence of gravity. Thus, with gravity acting as usual on other things, a drive of 200 yards would be completed in three and a half seconds. A thrown ball, for example, describing the same trajectory, would remain in the air only that length of time. The golf ball in passing over that 200 yards floated serenely through the air for six and a half seconds. It. was clear, then, that in some manner the gravity was thwarted. Professor Tait attacked the problem of the means, and in the end he solved it. After searching long he found the cause of the prolonged flight in the . rotation given to the ball by the club's impact. The secret lay in the manner of the stroke from the tee. The first principle of the explanation is in; the simple fact, that an object poised in the air has an equal atmospheric pressure on it at all points. The second principle is that when a sphere rotates in a current of air the side of the sphere which is advancing to meet the current is subjected to greater pressure than is that side which is moving in the direction of the current. To illustrate, when the golfer slices his ball it is made to spin in such fashion that its front side is constantly in movement to the right. Therefore the pressure of the air is greater on the left side than on the right, and the ball curves to the right. When the ball is pulled, the operation is reversed, and the flight bends away to the left. So if the ball is topped the spinning direction of the front is downward. Thus the pull of gravity is aided and the flight is swiftly checked. But every properly driven ball receives an undercut By the underspin thus Imparted the front side of the ball is made to spin upward; the added pressure is from below and is In consequence directly opposed to gravity. The result is a flight sustained, but little less than twice as long as it would be without this underspin. Moreover, Professor Tait demonstrated that without this undercut when driving the ball would travel only about half its usual distance. The ordinary golfer is quite unaware that he gives any underspin to his best drives, but he does. Without the undercut his driving would be a continuous failure.—Chicago Record-Herald. Tempting Fate. "Dost hear that?" asked the fair maid mentioned by the Atlanta Journal. There was a sound of a heavy step. "'TIs father. Fly, sweetheart, flyl" "You mean flee," corrected the lover. "As you like," said the maid, "but this is no time for entomological distinctions." Dramatic Note.
