English Girl, Alone but
Hopeful, Departs From
Southampton After Morn
ing Ride on Boat Train.
The next morning I awoke early I" a
tI'd excitement. For all was ready and
I was really to set -aU for America
I ate a hurried breakfast, my last

fcmellrd so Rood, but wore too substan

don lanrtlidy forced tne to tftko some
toaU and marmalade, and I drank a cup
of coffee hastily.
Then out to the waiting tast my lug

On the platform at Waterloo Station

1'AREWELL FOU URIDi: AND GROOM
Each carriage was a. little compait
ynent unto Itself, completely shut olt
from every other one, for It wa3 not a
corridor train. I soon found n. window
erat in a third-class enrriose and watch
ed a email and most Interesting group
outside. A nwly married couple were
being "seen off by a crowd of relatives
nnd friend?, the platform was strewn
with many-hued confetti, while lice nnd
nil the traces of the morning's festivities
lung to villous nicmbein of the wed
The little bride, the merest child sh
looked, hung half way out of tint car
riage window next to mine, while the
lanky husband. obiiouily of the coster
monger class, hovered uncertainly In the.
rear. A stream of dellcato pleasantries
fitted for the great occasion was directed
at the blushing maiden and hex nc.7
ijia.de groom, but she responded to the
" fiatt're-trail in true Cockney spirit. L'pon
her head via perched a w lerd and won
uerful confection, rarislau In int'-nt. but
gruesome in effect. Tin- last fond kl.is
Ings of her fnnnds, both male and female,
had set this "chapeau" raklshly askew,
nnd the strange aggressive fowl which
loosted In her hat now peered Inquisi
tively over one flushed cheek. For upon a
crown of yellow straw, true tango tint, a
large and flaunting Imitation bird-of-raradlso
held lordly sway. His flaunting
plumes of every garish hue waved wildly
In the rear and at every movement of
the little bride caught the unfortunate
groom light In the eye.
"Gawd 'elp me sowl, 'Arneta Jane,"
cried a facetious gentleman In the group,
who. Judging from a certain glassy sazo
nnd over-cental air. had pm taken of the
wedding least not wisely but too well!
'Why. blimey, gal, they'll never let jou

silently out of the great station, and soon
wo were out In the open lountry onco
again. I gazed oil the fixing English
landscapo as we ped along the green
beauty of the fields and woods and dales
was fresh and now after h night of rain.
"Weeping may endure for a night," said
I to myself, "but Joy is certalnl coming
In the morning."
GREAT VESSEti UEAVJKS DOCK.

besides myself an elderly lady of
uncertain years and of very severe,

If you have an apple tree in your

to know of an apple tree near your
home you can beg for some of the
"windfall apples" they make the very
best dolls, but are not good for much
else. If you can't get any apples
yourself, perhaps your mother will let
you have some of the very little ones
from among those she buys at the
grocery. Tell her she can have them
back after you have played with them,
and she won't mind a bit.
Now wash your apples clean and
rub them till they shine.
Ncm collect some straight sticks
some two. some three and some four
inclie long. Then sonic leaves and

Sort out your apples into two lots
the littlest arc the dolls' heads, the
bigger ones make the bodic. Pair
them off the way they fit together best
the littlest heads with the littlest
bodies, then the biggest heads with
the big fat bodies.
Fasten the heads into the bodies by
thrusting a two-inch stick into the
"body"-applc and then pressing the
"head"-apple down into the stick.
Choose which side of the apple is to
be the front and mark a jolly looking
face on the round head eyes, nose
and a smily mouth.
Now stick a pair of the three-inch
sticks in for arms and a pair of the
merrier! And some of the faces must
be smily, and some sober, some jolly

And what makes the leaves turn pretty?
And who put them on the tree?
And what makes the clouds grow blacker?
And why does the thunder shout?

Although the mother had not seen Jier

been told she was IS years old, and that
her mother waa dead.
Mrs. Gtbbs was separated from her

He wrote to Mrs. Gibbs. Sirs. Glbbs
received tho letter at West Vrankfort last
Saturday She wired a ticket to Hanover
for her daughter to come to Union Sta
tion. York took her to tho station and
put her on a train, telling her iome good
people In St. Louis were going to give
her a home. York did not understand
from the telegram that Mrs. Gibba was
the mother of the child.
Mrs. Glbbs came to Union Station and
asked permission to meet every train com

Station ofllclaU her daughter had been
kidnaped 11 years before and they ex.
tended her every aid in meeting the
trains. When there would be no trains
from the Southwest for several hours she
would go to a hotel near the station and
sleop, but all her waking hours were spent
in the station.
Patrolmen Hieti and Venverloh heard
tho story. She did not tell them all her
story and she was not certain the child

tuat perhaps she mlgtit have trouble in
recovering her child.
When the train did arrive bearing Ger
trude she was Informed by trainmen that
a little girl from Hanover, traveling alone,
waa on the train. She rushed to meet the
girl, and when she saw her burst Into
