Daisy with a shudder.
'Not one ot tuo servants ha9 courage
enough to do it for me; Mr. Wincbell
has a family, and since ottr recent ex
periences no has no taste for the task;
bo I have employed this young Palmer,
whose special business it will bo to
open ray parcels."
'Oh. papa, why should ho take tho
risk of bis life! lie is so so young,

"No, nor 1 Bister, nor any near rela

letter ho had written for post mortem
purposes proved that the shooting was
intentioual, ho was in dancer of arrest
and trial for attempted self mnrder.

with an idea and so used my influence

Bortha aThint that while she is with us
we hopo sbo will bo courtoous to him.
I am very fond of Bertha, my dear,
but I can seo that sho is just the least
bit snobbish like her lather. Uhed
Jenuees is an inbred snob!"
Tho famous Kilkenny oats might
well liavo been named Silas Clyburno
and Obed Jennets, for these two men
wero continually fighting, tooth and
nail. If ono could thwart .a scheme of
the other it was rare spoit to him, but
retaliation was sure to como in some
heart searching wav. As they had
married sisters and theie was con
stant intercourse between their wives
and daughter?, they outwardly main
tained an armed neutrality.
"Uoodness gracious, Daisy, do you
know who Uncle Silas has in his em
ploy nottl" cried Bertha Jenness to
her oousin when sue, too, nau seen the
young package opener.
"Yes, he told mo all about him just
a few moments ago. Poor fellow! He
has a romautio and sad history," ro
plied Daisy, and then went on to re
late what wo already know about Oj
bon o Palmer.
Bertha listened attentively with a
peculiar smile hovering around her
thiu, soulless lips, and when tho story
was conuluded the said with a shrug ot
her shoulders, "Very romantic, I ad
mit, but what a tool he wad"
'-Ob, no, Bertha! Doubtless bis
troubles had tempi rarily turned hia
brain, yet surely ho is to be pitied."
"1 am not so sura that ho is not
now but tell me, Daisy, did yon ever
hear me speak of a young cavalier I
bad who used to deluge rae with roses
and choice bonbons until his fortune
vanished and then showered on mo
tender versos of his own composition!"

'Doggerel, you meanl No, I hopo
not. In Osborne Palmer, your father's
clerk, you behold the man!
"No, Not really? Isn't that odd!
And now that ho has come to life
again, bo to Bpeak, the lovely romance
will begin all over again," said Daisy,
with a taint shado of regret in her
Each of these cousins had something
the other lacked; Bertha was ono of a
largo family, and how Daisy wishod
that she too might have ono or two
brothers, or one or two dear little
midgets of sisters. But Bertha ro
garded theeo younger ones as ohan
ucls where a largo sharo of her father's
money must go, while Daisy was tho
sole and idohzod hoir in her home.
Then, too, tJertha had so many
lovers and Daisy so fewl To be sure,
tho formor, over eager for attention,
met them fully half way, whilo tho
modest little flower watted quietly for
nottco or attention.
Of oourso it was not now at all
surprising that Osborno Palraor wns
Boon mado quite at home in tho Cly
burno mansion. Ho and Bertha had
ono day a long and confidential oon
versatton, anu anor that tiiero was no

And Silas Clyburne, aa ambitions as

man wero not attracted by his Daisy.

"But, papa dear, do you really moan
that you would forgive"
"Thero'a no question of forgiveness.
You just tell Osborno what I have
said, and if ho haa tho senso I givo
him credit for he will understand me."
At this moment Palmer himself
came into the room. Tho conversa
tion terminated abruptly.
b or some days thereafter Mr. (Jly-
burne waa so good natured, so almost
genorous, that every ono observed it;
his fellow directors and associates
nudged ono another and said: "Now's
your timo to talk to Ulyburno on audi
and such a project;" "and his clorks
whispered: "How queer Mr. Clyburno
soems! Wonder if he's going to diet"
Joe tntimato inend, a venturcsomo
fellow, had tho hardihood to say:
"What tho mischief has como over
you lately! I never know you to bo so

"Didn't cost rao anything but a little

The friend didn t mention thia to
any but ten ot hia most intimate

oretive it did not take long to set
every man on tho 'Change to Blyly

alsoDy tho way of Allentown with tho

indeed, a most important connection of
tho Philadelphia and Reading Railroad
aud ono whioh haa only been rco3ntly
opened up to tho publio. Passengers
can take through trains via this routo
to Boston without ohango. Tho day
trains havo Pullman bullot-cars, and
Blccpers on tho night trains. This is
tho only direct routo 10 Boston with
out ohango of any kind, and passes
through tho very garden spot of Con

Passengers from Philadelphia can con
nect with these' trains at Slatington
from tho Twenty-fourth and Chestnut
Street or Ninth and Qrccn Stroot do-
pots, and there aro also direct through
trains for Boston from theso depots
daily. This route has bcoomo very
popular with travelers from tho West

annoyance of oroasiug to Now York

Reading Railroad connects with the
Fall Brook Coal Company's railroad to
Corning, N. Y., for points oast and

road for tho east and west. It also
connects with tho Now York Central

N. Y., for points oast and West, aa
well as tho Beoch Creek Railroad for

Tho iteading Uompany ia making

In short, tho now management has

wife was ironing in her kitchen, using
a flat iron filled with charcoal, when a
spark flow out and set firo to her mus
lin dress. In hor fright bIio ran into
tho courtyard where her husband and
his peoplo wero threshing barloy. Tho
barley caught fire from her and wa
no sooner ablaze than tho wind blew
tho sparks in all directions, setting fire
to tho thatched roofs of tho houses
whioh stood in two long rows, forming
tho main stroot. All was bo sudden
and the peoplo woro so dumbfounded
that for a little timo thoy could not
even call for help. Most of the heads
of families wore in tho vineyards and
their help was not availabla until thoy
had boon recalled by tho alarm boll.

houses had not prosonoo of mind

109 houses wero destroyed and 131
flimtliod are without a roof abovo their

corn in tho barns waa consumed iu tho
