"Don't laugh at my jealous fancy,
but but supose he persuaded Gwen
to accompany him!"
"Impossible, sir!" was the Indignant
answer. "You show your Ignorance of
my niece by such a suspicion.'
"But, uncle, women are so queer and
flighty, and and just see how this
wire gives color to my idea! Why need
she send It at all? It would have been
no great matter if Jamos had gone
to meet several trains. Was it not cal
culated to keep the whole afternoon
free? See, there are only three trains
In the day from It , and Everard
could have met her and started by the
mall train for Paris, or God knows
where. He had some power over her.
I heard him say" and he repented the
story of the ball which he had told Mar
ling in the morning.
At first Mr. Ardell was Indignant and
Incredulous, but as Blount persisted
and insisted on the weakness, gullibil
ity and fanclfulness of women, espe
cially young ones, the elder man grew
restless, Jrritable and blustering.
"Time will show, sir!" cried Blount
at last, looking at the heavy classical
bronze clock over the fireplace; "and
I haven't left myself too much time to
get to the station by 10.20. God grant I
may bring back Gwendoline safe and
sound to you. I may exaggerate things,
but I hardly hope to find her!"
"Nonsense, Philip. I believe you are
out of your mnd; but you have made
me very uncomfortable," returned Mr.
Ardell, ringing the bell. "Come back
as fast as you can. Whistle a cab for
Mr. Blount," he continued, as James
appeared In answer to the bell.
"You must not ngitate yourself too
much, my dear uncle," said Blount, ris
ing and feeling some compunction at
having worked up his host to such a
pitch of uneasiness, and he loft the
A hansom already awaited him, and
he was soon rattling toward Paddlng
ton.' By this time he had reached a condi
tion of mind which Induced him to seek
comfort by recapitulating his uncle's
arguments against himself.
Suppose his horrible suspicions
proved true. Mr. Ardell would cer
tainly cut off Gwen with a shilling
or, perhaps, a farthing possibly all
his uncle's fortune might come to him.
"But I want Gwen, too," he thought.
"I have, always been fond of her.
"How Pore You Accuse
There's such go and style about her,
and Just lately she has been so sweet
and friendly. What bright, mischiev
ous brown eyes she has. There's no
girl in our set fit to tie her shoes. No,
all the money wouldn't be worth much,
at least just now, if Gwen clipped
through my fingers. Hullo! the arrival
platform. Cabby, mind what you are
about I want to meet the 10.20 from
R , and It's 10.17 now."
In a fw'seconds he had alighted and
was pacing the platform.
The rush and bustle of the early even
ing trains were over. The great sta
tion looked gloomy and deserted very
few porters were about and the lO.liO
was evidently a thing of no Import
ance. Blount paced slowly up and down
revolving the possibilities of his posi
tion. Gwen was certainly what Is called a
sTlrl of spirit, not to say slightly head
strong, and there was no saying what
a young woman of that description
might, could or would do. What mo
' tlve had she In sending that mysterious
telegram, If It were not to mask her
movements? "Here, porter; Isn't the
10.20 from R behind time?"
"Well, it often is but It's signaled
now, sir." .
A few more uneasy, miserable min
utes and the panting engine was alung-
Bide the platform, while the porters
were opening and banging the doors.
The train was fairly full of better class
'Arrys and 'Arriets who had been boat
tng, plump mothers with numerous
olive branches returning from excur
sions along the river, lover-like couples
of a higher grade, eager to Jump Into
. hansoms as If feaful of being behind
time; men In flannels, girls in muslins
and shady hats, for It had been a glo
rious summer's day. But no sign of
. the tall distinguished figure he sought
for so feverishly. His keen eyes
searched every carriage and scanned
each group. Soon they were dispersed
like grains of pepper thrown on water,
while he was alone and despairing.
Certainly Owen Dashwood was not
coming home tonight. He left the
station and drove back to 'Lonsdale
Gardens as fast as he could.
"No sign of her!" he exclaimed, rush-
In Into the dining room, where Mr,
Ardell, thoroughly Infected by his
nephew's fears, was pacing to and fro.
"Not come!" cried the old man
aghast. "Why, what what can be the
meaning of this this extraordinary
disappearance! Something unexpected
Jias occurred. She- has missed her
train. 6he has been over-jiersuaded to
, ill JV, , . V -
stay the night many things might
have happened, but your your un
warrantable surmise Is too too pre
posterous. If Gwen were guilty of de
ceiving me, I'd I'd rtnounce her for
ever." "You must not be too hard. If we
can only prevent scandal. I should still
be ready ito carry out your wishes. I"
"What, is 'to be done next, Philip?"
resumed his uncle as If he had not
"I'm sure I hardly know, sir. Shall I
call at Kverard's club tomorrow and
ascertain if possible when he returns?
But of course foe will leave little or no
trace of his movements."
"I am quite certain you do Gwen the
greatest injustice, but, my dear boy,
come to me tomorrow morning early,
as early as you pan. There Is not much
doing tomorrow, that ease Is not on till
till Wednesday, and young Pounceby
can manage very well, at least for a
few hours, and we must know some
thing eei'taln by the afternoon. No use
in expecting her tonight, Philip. Take
some brandy and soda before you go. I
want some myself."
Both felt a little more hopeful after
partaking of this refreshment, when
they parted with some solemnity, and
Blount made .his way to his own place,
where he passed a wretched night, har
assed by frightful dreams. In which he
found himself minus both the "beauz
yeux" and 'the "cassette," of which he
hoped to possess himself.
Aflter a hasty visit to the ofilce, for
he never neglected business, Blount
hurried to Lonsdale Gardens.
"Well, Philip, have you telegraphed?"
was Mr. Ardell'a salutation.
"No, sir, I thought you would, and
two wires would seem ridiculous and
"What matter, so long as we get In
formation?" cried his Uncle testily.
"I will go and telegraph myself," said
Blount, anxious to be up and doing, and
bent his steps to a central office at some
dtiitance, fancying it would be more
rapidly dispatched than from the little
local postoflice In a baker's shop. Re
turning, a runaway horse and a
smashed vehicle impeded his progress,
and on his arrival James received him
with smiles. "Miss Dayhwood Is up
stairs, sir arrived just after you went
Blount rushed upstairs, two tfteps at
Mc of Such llascncss."
a time, flung ojsen the door and beheld
hln uncle standing on the hearth-rug,
playing nervously with his "pince-nez;
while, still In her hat a very becoming
one an open telegrais In her hand,
Gwen was walikng up' and down In
(not to put too fine a point upon It) a
"To make all ithis fuss about noth
ing!" she was saying. "To Insult me
with such suspicions, and you, uncle,
to believe them! Ah, Philip, I won
der you dare to look me In the face! I
know it Is all your doing. You have
upset Uncle Ardell frightfully, he Is
quit ill. How daw you accuse me of
such baseness! Yes, uncle has told me
everytlidng, and 'I see that you are a
low-minded, disagreeable creature, and
I was beginning to think better of you.
The whole mystery has arisen from a
mistake, either of mine or the tele
graph clerk at It . The telegram I
thought I sent that I Intended to send
was: 'Shall not be home tonight.'
Either he or I omitted the negative!"
"My dear Gwen," began Blount, Im
"Don't 'dear me!" she Interrupted.
"As to Mr. Everard, he had a quarrel
with his fiancee, an old schoolfellow of
mine. I have holped to reconcile them,
and she has asked him to meet her and
her mother in Paris."
"But, Gwen, If you knew my feel
ings!" "If you had kept them to yourself
and not tried to make mischief with
I might forgive; as It Is, I shall have no

more to do with you, Philip."
And she kept her word.

A CHRISTMAS BALL.
Instructions That MayPosslbly Aid a Per-
, . plexcd Gift-Glvcr.
'A Christmas ball is a pretty trifle to
give an absent friend. The heart of
the ball may be some pretty little gift,
a gold thimble, an emery ball, a silver
Bpool or something of ,that nature,
around this silk floss or zephyr Is
wound with a quotation appropriate to
the person for wihom the ball Is In
tended, put In and covered with the
floss or zephyr.
These quotations may be taken from
a favorite author of the giver or the
one who receives the present, or they
may be made personal In charaoter,
"She was a phantom of delight
When first she beamed upon my sight;"
"Hor eyes as stars of twilight fair;
Like twilight, too, her dusky hair."
When the ball has been made the de
sired size a handsome pair of scissors,
a gold bodkin, a beautiful needle case
or any gift the donor fancies may be
attached to the end of the thread.
As the ball Is unwound in embroider
ing, knitting or crocheting, as the case
may be, the quotations come to light
unexpectedly and give pleasure long
ufter Christmas day has passed Into
the shadows of memory, while the heart
of the ball adds the final bit of pleasure
when the last thread Is unwound.'
B01KGKT OX FOOT BALL.
Frenchman Describes a UamcThat lit; Suw
During Ills Sojourn In America-His
Opinion of the Sport.
Paul Bourget, the French author who
recently visited America, Is writing a
series of articles for the New York
Herald on what ho saw in America. He
thus describes a game of foot ball:
Among the distractions of sport, none
hus been more fashionable for several
years pust than foot bull. 1 was present
last autumn, In the poureful and gentlu
city of Cambridge, at a game be
tween the champions of Harvard
college the leaiu, as they say
here und the chuniplons of the Univers
ity of Pennsylvania. I must hark ba;'k
to my Journey In Spain to recall a fever
of the people equal to that which palpi
tated along tho road between Boston and
the arena where tho match was to take
place. The electric enrs followed one en
other at Intervals of a minute, tilled with
passengers, who, seated or standing, or
clinging to the steps, were pressed to
gether, crushing each other. Although
the duys of November are cruelly cold
under a Massachusetts sky, the rendez
vous, as at Koine for gladiatorial coin
buts, was a kind of onclosure In the open
air. Two steps away from Memorial hall
and from the other buildings of tho uni
versity wooden stands were erected. On
theso stands were perhaps 15.000 specta
tors, and In the Immense quadrilateral
hemmed In by the stands were two teams
composed of eleven youths each waiting
for the signal to commence.
What a tremor in that crowd, composed
not of the people of the lower classes,
but of well to do people, and how the ex
citement Increased as time went on! All
held In their hands small, red flags an 1
wore tufts of red flowers. Scarlet is tho
color of the Harvard boys. Although a
movement of feverish excitement ran
though this crowd it was not enough for
the enthusiasts of the game. Propaga
tors of enthusiasm, students with smooth,
pinched faces, passed between tho bench
es and lncreused still further the ardor
of the public by uttering the war cry of
the university, the "Itah! ruh! rah!"
thrice repeated, which terminates In tho
frenzied call, "Haaar-vard." The partl
sansof the "Pennsy'a" replied by a similar
cry, and In the distance, above the pullngs
of the enclosure, we could sec, amid tha
leafless trees, the bright faces of other
spectators, too poor to pay tho entrance
fee, which were outlined against the au
tumn sky with the daintiness of the pale
heads in Japanese painted fans.
The signal is given and the play begins.
It Is a terrible game, which by Itself
would suffice to indicate tho differences
between the Anglo-Saxon and the Latin
word a game of young bulldogs brought
up to bite, to rush upon the quarry, a
game tit for a race made for wild attack,
for violent defense, for implacable con
quests und struggles even to extermina
tion. With their leather vests, with th
Harvard sleeves of red cloth, and tho
Pennsylvania blue and white vests and
sleeves, so soon to be torn with the
leather gaiters to protect their shin,
with their great shoes and their long hair
floating around their pale and pink fnc?s,
those scholarly athletes are at once nd
mlrable and frightful to see, as soon os
the demon of the contest has entered Into
them. At each extremity of the field Is a
goal, representing, at the right end one of
the teams, at the left the other. The en
tire object Is to throw an enormous
leather ball, which the champion of one
or tho other side holds in turn. It Is In
waiting for this throw that all the excite
ment of this almost ferocious amusement-
Is concentrated. He who holds the bull Is
there, bent forward, his companions ami
his adversaries likewise bent down around
him in the attitude of beasts of prey
about ito spring. All of a sudden he runs
to throw tho ball, or else with a move
ment of wild rapidity he bunds it to an
other, who rushes off with It, and whom
It Is necessary to stop.
The brutality with which they seize the
bearer of the ball Is Impossible to Imagine
without having witnessed It. He Is seized
by the middle of the body, by the head,
by the legs, by the feet. He rolls over and
his assailunts with him, and us they llsriit
for the ball and the two slues come to the
rescue, It becomes a whole heup of twenty-two
bodies tumbling on top of one an
other, like an Inextricable knot of ser
pents with human heads. This heap
writhes on the ground and tears Itself.
One sees faces, hnlr, backs or legs appear
ing In a monstrous and agitated melee.
Then this murderous knot unravels itself
and tho ball, thrown by the most agile,
rebounds and Is again followed with the
same fury. Constantly, after one of those
frenzied entanglements and when the
knot of players Is undone, one of ths com
batants remains on the field motionless,
Incapable of rising, so much has he been
hit, pressed, crushed, thumped.
A doctor whose duty it la to look after
the wounded arrives and examines him.
One sees those skilled hands shaking a
foot, a leg, rubbing the sides, washing a
face, sponging the blood which streams
from the forehead, the eyes, the nose,
the mouth. A compassionate comrade
helps him In this occupation and takes the
head of the fainted champion on his knee.
Sometimes the unfortunate boy must bo
carried away. More frequently, however,
he recovors his senses, stretches hlmsolf
somewhat, wakes, and ends by getting up.
He makes a few steps, leaning on the
friendly shouldor, and no sooner Is ho
thus able to progress than the game be
gins afresh, and he Joins In again with a
rage doubled by pain and humiliation.
From the Indianapolis Journal.
"We have met the enemy," began the
enthusiastic young orator at the ratifica
tion meeting, "and they "

NEW CHRISTMAS NOTIONS.
Some Substitutes for the Customary Tree
. Briefly Suggested. .
The Christmas tree is to be sup
planted this year. The mothers of the
land and the aunts and tho grown-up
sisters have said: "Go to, now; we will
devise something new. For, lo! These
many years have our rooms been lit
tered with evergreen spikes; these
many winters paBt have our arms
ached from tying impossible cherubs
at Impossible heights; these many
Christmases has the fire department
dreaded the union of lighted candles
and dry branches. We will have some
One rather attractive plan, says the
New York World, Is to tit up a corner
of the room as a miniature snow-field.
A sheet is the best material to strttch
down, and it should have tacked over
It bits of raw cotton, with here and
there a piece of tinsel to give the effect
of glittering snow. On this should be
placed a big sleigh. Big sleighs are not
found In abundance In every household,
of course, but the households which
have no sleighs will have to depend
upon the old-fashioned Christmas tree.
The children's gifts should be packed in
the sleigh und someone should be pre
pared -to net as Santa Claus on Christ
mas morning and distribute the load of
presents. The shafts should be wound
with ground pine, and bells should be
attached, so that the traditional Santa
Claus Jingle will be heard.
An enormous hollow log tho yule log
in appearance, if not In reality may
bo another receivable for gifts. A papier-mache
log, with adjustable top, is
the' moat convenient log for this pur
pose. When the top has been lifted and
tho presents have been distributed, the
make-believe log may be burned In
A row of little wooden shoes set In
good, old fashioned German style about
the lire is an excellent substitute for
the cuslumary row of stockings dang
ling above It.
It Is a pretty, Christmas-like idea to
have the various presents arranged In a
pnowdrift pile. All the gifts are ar
ranged in white boxes, which have imi
tation snow In the form of spangled
raw cotton tacked over their lids und
sides. Bl'ts of holly are stuck in, and
the whole lot Is piled loosely In one
corner. The amount of fun which the
little people extract from the appear
ance of the pile, and from the search
for their own particular boxes more
'than pays for the difficulty of arrang
ing the snowdrift.

MONG the varied subjects
none play so important a part, none so deeply concern the
public weal, nor so nearly touches every individual dweller
in the city, as the quality and quantity of the water supply.
Years ago tho Scranton (.las and Water company commenced pur
chasing lands on Oak Run, Roaring Brook and Meadow Brook for
reservoir sites, which they saw would be necessary to supply the rap
idly increasing population of the
ful body of water on the Erie and Wyoming Valley railroad, about
a mile above Dunnings. This dam flows the water back about a
mile and a half, and has a storage capacity of about 400,000,000 gal
lons. The natural scenery surrounding this sheet of water is most
delightful and attracts much attention from those traveling on tha
trains passing this section of the 'country, and the people living in
that vicinity take a great deal of pride in the beautiful views which
are everywhere presented. The Dunnings reservoir, with a ca

Dunmore; this is the principal distributing reservoir of the city. The
water from Dunnings dam flows

one 20-inch pipe and one 10 -inch pipe. The service is sufficient, if
necessary, to supply at a given point in caso of emergency, such as
for instance the corner of Lackawanna and Washington avenues, 30,
000,000 gallons per day. The Meadow Brook reservoirs are on the
Stafford Meadow Brook. The first one, situated about four miles
above tho junction with the Lackawanna river, is constructed the
same as tho Dunnings and Oak Run a heavy stone masonry dam,
all laid in Portland cement. It is used as a distributing reservoir,
like that at No. 7, and has a capacity of 80,000,000 gallons. The
water from this reservoir is also run through an 18-inch pipe to the
consumer, which in a city the size of Scranton is an unusually import
ant service, and something that
above this, on the same stream,
built with tho same kind of masonry as the other dams, its capacity
being 230,000,000 gallons. Connected with it is an 18-inch pipe
which carries the water to the high service reservoir located at No. G,
which supplies Hyde Tavk and all the higher points of the city,
thereby giving the city three independent service supplies, with a ca
pacity of delivering at the several different points about 40,000,000
gallons per day.
The system now operated by the Gas and Water company fur
nishes the very best of water, and has enough in reserve to supply
the city for a year. The company is at present clearing a large ter
ritory along Stafford Meadow Brook for another storage reservoir,
which, when completed, will give a capacity of 1,400,000,000 gallons
The result of this far-seeing policy on the part of the company is to
gain an unlimited supply of water to meet whatever the needs of tna
city may be in the future.
OAS Scranton people are very fortunate in having such
WORKS, excellent service in the use of gas. No city in the
state is better supplied, and the rates compare favorably with tho
lowest, consumers paying but $1.23 per 1,000 feet; large consumers,
$1.17, The plant has recently been rebuilt and enlarged, and now
the facilities allow them to make 1,000,000 cubic feet in twenty-foup
THE ELECTRIC LIGHT
Scranton the Best and Cheapest Lighted
City in the State.
THE station and works of the Electric Light and Heat com
pany are located on the banks of tho Lackawanna, jusbe
low the gas works. This is the largest plant in the state
outside the cities of Philadelphia or Pittsburg. There is no better
service in any city in the country. Fourteen Brush arc light ma
chines are operated, each with a capacity of sixty arc lights, making
a total capacity of 840. This requires four large Corless engines of
800 horse power.
Tho company furnishes the streetlights and does the bulk of the
arc lighting in tho city. Some idea of the facilities for furnishing arc
lights can bo gained from the fact that the company owns 115 miles
of poles and wires, covering every section of the city.
