His Shakespeare, of all volumes! How stupid of Thomas to have' let out his books without his knowledge Or con: sent! Only last week he had missed his favorite, much marked copy of Rochefoucault. Presley had nabbed that. But this was. a little too much. Es pecially in view of the fact that "Ham let" was playing that night and there were a couple of passages he felt he must run over. ... '.. . He crossed the room impatiently and pushed the call bell. It was answered at once by the redoubtable valet. ''It seems still more of my books are missing, yhomas. I am afraid you have been careless. I can't locate that red calf edition of Shakespeare any where." "You left orders, sir—begging your pardon—to accommodate any of the young gentlemen"-^ "When I rushed off to Europe, eh?' A whimsical smile made its transient passage across Farrington's scowling face. "Very well. I presume you are right. I was a bit upset, I remember. You may go." But as the man started toward the door he called him back. 'By the way, are there any book stores hereabout?" "No first class ones, sir." "Any—er—first class neighbors?" V "A few, sir." \ "Good! Scrimmage around and find me a Shakespeare before night and I'll"— But Thomas had already disappeared * * * * * * * Marjorie Hayward was just coming out of the front door when Farrington's man stepped up on the veranda. His request surprised her a little, but she was very glad, indepd, to be able to accommodate him. :/ . She had a copy of Shakespeare some where, she said, an old, battered one, but his "master" was welcome to the use of it, certainly. And with this in formation she went back into the library to search for it. What sort of people were they, any how, the new neighbors who had just moved, in the day before and were al-\ ready beginning.; to borrow people's bOoks^ she wondered good naturedly. At last she came across the rusty little volume, stuffed to overflowing with old letters, clippings and scraps of memoranda. She held it up and shook them-out in a shower, a swarm of memories suddenly aroused by the long buried sight of certain familiar bits of wilting, pressed flowers crumbling to atoms, yet vaguely redolent still of a dear, dead past. ... " „ With a smothered sigh she caught herself back sharply from her foolish reflections and returned to the door with the book. Thomas thanked her elaborately and hastened away. Marjorie waited till he had passed up the short stone walk of the house next door. Then shtf buttoned up her coat and walked down the gravel path to the gate. * • * * x* / _ * * Farrington took the volume eagerly, turning the yellowed leaves with deft finrors till he should come to "Hamlet." But suddenly he paused, his eyes narrowed curiously and his hfeart gave a startled jump. A brief extract from "The Merry Wives bt Windsor" caught his attention. "Ask me no reason why I love you, for, though love use reason for its precision, he admits him not for his counselor."- The passage was heavily underscored, and below it were scribbled In corroboration the initials "M. H."— W. F." They were hers—and his! Marjorie Hayward! The name sent, his thoughts tumbling tumultously back over the past, sent the blood tingling even to his eyelids. How many years—nearly ten!—since he had called that name. Yet bow many days, indeed, had it been absent from his heart? •" i f - J - - / 7: The minutes flew by as he sat there wrapped in meditation. At last he began again to slip the leaves absently through . hie • fingers, when abruptly they came in contact with something alien. He glanced doser> almost indifferently, and started again as his gaze rested stupidly upon an envelope stuck *tc. one of the'pages and addressed in full to hichself—addressed In Marjorie. Hayward's clear, resolute characters half a score of years ago, when they had both lived in the same little west-ern town. Without a second thought as to whether he should or should not open It Farrington deliberately tore the letter from Its inclosure and read: Dearv Walter—I have been thinking things over, and, after all, you must be right. I made the mtatake, and I am willing to acknowledge'It. We love each other too much, do we not, to let a silly quarrel separate us for life? Gome to me tonight. I shall be waiting for you. As ever, MARJORIS. For an indeterminate space. Walter Farrington sat half stunned. What had- happened? What could it mean? Had she changed her mind about sending the letter, or had there been some oversight, some carelessness, in the posting? 7: And Marjorie herself, .where was she now ? Could it be that, she wfts jess, than a block away at this mfnnt^? Perhaps she was married. Or wfts she ment.' Aliss Hayward. had-- gone"ic • "Hamlet." Farrington hurried down [ the avenue that led to the^ playhouse. ! Luckily, his ticket was to be called for ( at the box office. It was a; good seat And commanded a sweeping view of the audience. -- 7: ; After the first act their eyes' i6et— locked—across the sea of fa!ces in the orchestra; . The girl paled, flushed and paled again. Then her eyes fell away from the deep, ardent gaze riveted upon her. After, the play Farrington stationed himself at the door, but Marjorle^left, by a box entrance, and he went home with a sinking heart to a dream haunted pillow. -* The rain washed, sky was blushing pink when he opened his shutters at 6 the next mornihg. The flowers made a rainbow of color in th$ garden be- : low,. and the air was vocal.with "the matutinal chirping of birds.' ; • Suddenly the door of the house across the way swung Open, and young woman in a trim brown travel ing dress, suit case in hand, emerged upon the porch. Farrington caught a desperate breath, The northbound train left in twelve minutes, and he was still in his bath, robe and slippers. After Providence had thus dejecta bly tossed tliem together again she was running away from him. Seven minutes later, decidedly ill groomed, he whizzed up to the platform of the G. and Gi, jumped out and sent Thomas speeding on his way in the runabout. Miss Hayward was just turning from the ticket window as he came up, and again their eyes met, hers evasivel-yi his with the old compelling power she had never known how to resist. "Marjorie!" "Walter!" The name escaped her unconsciously. "I just received your message, dear, he said, "and that is why I am here. He displayed to her bewildered gaze the faded writing on the yellowed paper. * "Why," she breathed wonderingly "why, I don't understand. I wrote you that letter over nine years ago and"— "For some reason which is not -pres-r ently apparent it was never mailed. See, the stamp is uncanceled. I found It in the little old Shakespeare we used to read so often together." "And which I have never opened since you went away," she interposed in a little tremulous whisper. The engine bell rang. With a little exclamation Marjorie started toward the train. Farrington took her suit case from her. "Where are you going?" he asked. "To Pittsburg. And you?" ."Wherever you are—always." And they, stemied^aboard the „ mov-. ing; train.: What Is In a Name. ^ Heinemann, the European publisher, once noticed two peddlers standing side by side, selling toy dolls; One of them had a queer^ fat faced doll, which he was pushing into the faces of the pass-ersby, giving it the name of a well known woman reformer then prominently before the public. His dolls were selling rapidly, while the man beside him, who had a really more attractive doll, was doing comparatively little business. A thought occurred to Heinemann, and he tried an experiment. Calling the second^ peddler to one-side, "My friend," he sald, "do you want to knOw how to • sell twice as many of these dolls as you are selling now? Hold them up In pairs, two together in each hand, and cry them as The Heavenly Twins.' " The toy vender somewhat grudgingly followed his advice. It was at a time when Sarah Grand's famous novel was at the height of its popularity, and the title of the book was oh etery one's tongue. Perhaps It was merely luck, but the heavenly twins dolls, were an instantaneous success, and within one hour the vender of the woman reformer dolls gave up the fight, acknowledged himself beaten and moved five blocks down the street to escape the ruinous competition.—Lorin F. Deland In ^Atlantic. ^ , In a Strange Land. Two bel&ted disciples of Bacchus staggered arm in arm up Walnut street about 8 o'clock the other morning. The street wis dark except for "a single ground glass globe that blazed in front of an apartment house. One of the inebriates, spying this lone light, observed: 7 ^ 7 "Oh, look atzhe moonsh!" The other seriously contradicted him, saying: "That ain't no moonsh; zash sun." This started an argument, which lasted for several minutes, as to whether the' globe was the moon or the sun. Finally they decided to ?leave it to the first ptisserby, who-happened to be another— happy" gentleman.. They 'stopped him and, pointing to the globe, asked: 7 •• • . "Settle an argument, old pal. j;Is that the moon or the'sun?" ;f7 The third-party stared knowingly^ at the globe for several minutes before lie shook his head and replied: "Gentlemen, I really couldn't tell you.

Glenwood A. iLLeete, Thompsonville Digestive Powers of the Ostrich. The observation related under this head, by Mr. R. j. Stordy Is curious and probably establishes a record. An ostrich one year old, which was in a bad condition and had been ill for a long time, died. On examining jthe Uody Mr. Stordy found in' the stomach ill brass cartridge cases and two bullets. A large number of these cartridge. cases were worn down till they were no larger than peas. Four only had lost the detonator. .The others had evidently been swallowed more .recently. Most of them were compressed and twisted. " A large quantity of scraps of brass were mixed with the contents of tfie stomach and gizzard. Mr. Stordy attributes the ostrich's'death not to the swallowing of the cartridge cases; but to a parasitic disease.—Recueil de Medicine Yeteri-naire. Mixed.
