"They too often end that way. More

"I read the whole poem the other day,"
she said after a silence of some minutes
"Sorrowful as It Is, it comforted me by
comparison. How different will be our fate
to his when 'another ship stays by this

Yet neither of them knew that one line
she had recited was more singularly ap
plicable to their case than that which they
paid heed to. "The great stars that globed
themselves In heaven" were shining clear

rescued a maid. Nevertheless, Grecian
romance and Dyak lore alike relegate the
Influence of the Pleiades to the sea. Other
stars are needed to foster enterprise ashore.
"PAPA, MY KISSES ARE ALL GONE"
Dearest Children I wnnt to give you a thought today and I will do it by
asking, "How many kisses hava YOU 1" .
Once upon a timo there was a little boy and he had a father. One day the
father took off the llttlo boy's shirt and BEAT htm so that the marks showed.
For a long timo the littlo boy would not kiss anybody. He would simply
say, "My kisses aro pll gone." ...... m
One day the little boy ran to greet his father and said to him, "Papa, my
kisses have all come back."
I had never thoughof there, being such a thing as a SUPPLY of kisses.
When we go to the grocery storo the man says, "I am sorry, but we are

sold all the, eggs he had, In the other a small boy had a supply of "kisses and
when his father BEAT him he lost all his kisses.
Now what is back of a kiss? I should say LOVE. The opposite of love is
hate or resentment. The little boy RESENTED what his father had done to
him and his love was replaced by resentment.
When we put a penny in the slot and get weighed wo see the metal hand

ltralty vs. llomanre The Cass far Ihs
Night after night the Pleiades swung
higher In the firmament; day after day the
sailor perfected his defenses and anxiously
scanned the ocean for sign of friendly
smoke or hostile sail. This respite would
not hae been given to him were It not for
the lucky bullet which remocd two fingers
and part of a third from the right hand of
the Dynk chief. Not een n' healthy sav
age can afford to treat such a wound lightly,
and ten dnys elapsed before the maimed
robber was able to movo the Injured limb
without a curse.
Mennwhtle. each night Jenks slept less
Boundlyj each day his face became more
careworn. He began to realise why the
Island had not been visited already by tho
vessel which would certainly be deputed to
search for them she was examining the
great coastline of Chtna and Slam.
It was his habit to mark the progress of
time on tho rudely made sun dial which suf
ficiently served their requirements as a
clock. Iris happened to watch him chipping
tho forty-fourth notch on the edge of the
horlxontal block of wood.
"Have we really been forty-four days
here?" She Inquired, after counting the
marks with growing astonishment
"I bellevo the reckdntng Is nccurnto." he
said. "Tho Sirdar was lost on the I8th of
March, and I make this the 1st of May."
"Yes. Shall we drive to Ilurllngham this

wise, when busy, the days fly like hours."
"It must bo convenient to have such an
"Most usoful. I strive to apply the quick
rate when you nre grumpy."
Iris placed her arms akimbo, planted her
reet widely npart, and surveyed Jenks with
an expression that might almost be termed
Impudent They were great friends, these
two. now. The Incipient stage of love
making had been dropped entirely, as ludl
crl'?lr unsulted to their environment
A hen tho urgent necessity for continuous
'bor no longer spurred thorn to exertion
during eery moment of" daylight, they
tackled the box of books and read, not
VOlUmeS Which Annnlr1 tn thm In fnmmnn
but quaint tomes In tho use of which Jenks
was tutor and Irli the scholar.
It became a fixed principle with the girl
that sho was very Ignorant, and she in
sisted thnt the sailor should teach her.
For liuttanco, among the books ho found
a trentlso on astronomy: It yielded a keen
delight to both to Identify a constellation
and learn all sorts of wonderful things
concerning It. But to work even the sim
plest problem required a knowledge of nl
gebra, and Iris had never gone beyond
decimals. So the stock of notebooks. In
stead of recording their experiences, be
camo covered with symbols showing how
x and y equaled x2 minus 2,000,000.
As a arlant Jenks Introduced a study
of Hindustani. Ills method was to write
a short sentence and explain In detail Its
component parts. With a certain awe Iris
surveyed the Intricacies of the Urdu com
pound crb, but, about her fourth lesson,
she broke out Into exclamations of extrava
"What on earth Is tho matter now?" de
manded her. surprised mentor.
"Don't you seo?" Bho exclaimed, delight
edly. "Of course, you don't! People who
know about a thing often miss Its obvious
points. I have discovered how to write
Klpllngese. All you have to do is to tell
your story In Urdu, translate It literally
Into English, and there you are I"
"Quite so. Just do It as Kipling does,
and the secret Is laid bare. By tho same
rule you can hit upon the Mlltonlo ad
jective." Iris tossed her head.
"I dont know anything about the Mlltonlo
ndjecthe, but I nm sure nbout Kipling."
This ended the argument. She knitted
her brows In the effort to master the ri
diculous complexities of a language which,
Instead of simply saying, "Take" or
"Bring," compels one to say, "Take-go"
One problem defied solution that of pro

weeks, he might havo succoeded. But mod

and stiffened with Chinese olny, permit of
no such exhaustive research. It must be
remembered that the lady passengers on
board the Sirdar wero dressed to suit the
tropics, and the hard usage given by Iris
to her scanty stock was never contemplated

Then a new light dawned upon Jenks.
"Why did you not think of It beforer

morning, I must state quite emphatically
that our rescue may come any hour."
