enoi;nious al'fair; 'Mie letters were as

Vuimson. At the cad of his contempla

ilflttinilnedly. "No, no," .lie murmured.
"This is too much of a g'nod thing.
First ithiiitf you knmv, he'll net llred."
A soft booming sound of surf, min
gled wHIi the cries of bathers, came
from the iK'aeh. There was a vista of
Kind and sky and sesi that drew ito a
mystic jioiivt far away In the nm'th
wivl. In t'he mighty .-tingle, a Kill in a
led dress was crawlinf? slow ly like some
kiivl of a spider on .Due fabric of naiture.

luii'.nited dimly upon the sky, and hih

Within the morry-K'o-i'ouiid there was

inpr with varnish and modal that caught
swift reflections from windows 'high
mbove them. With HtifT wooden legs,
they, swept on in a never-ending race
wiiile a gre.nt orchestrion clamored In
wild speed. The summer sunlight
sprinkled Its gold upon the garnet can
opies carried by the tireless racers and
upon all the devices of decoration it lint
made fcltimson's machine magnificent
and famous. A host of laughing chil
dren bestrode 'the animals, bending for
ward like, charging cavalrymen and
shaking ruins and whooping In glee.
At Intervals hey leaned out perilously
to olutcih a.t Iron rings that were ten
dered to them iby a long wooden arm.
At the Intense moment before the
swift gra.b for the rings one could see
Choir little nervous bodies quiver with
fuiferness; the kaughter rang shrill and
fxctted. Down In the long rows of
benches, crowds of people sat watching
rtllie- game while occasionally a father
mi glut arise and go ne;ur to shout en
couragement, cautionary commands, or
Applause .at his Hying off-spi'ing. Fre
' fluently mothers called out: "He care
ful, Ut-orgie!" The orchestrion beb
J.iwed and thundered on lis platform,
lllllng the ears with Its long monoton
ous song, while over In a corner, a man
in a white .apron and IwhVnd a counter
roared .aiiovj 'tile itutnult: "Pop corn!
A young man .stood upon a small,
IHilsed platform, ereoted in it lift mannvr
fif a pulp'.t ami Jut-it without tlie line of
Ithe circling llgures. It was his duty
ito manipulate the wooden arm and
mm the rings. When all were gone
(Into the hands of tlw (triumphant chil
dren, he held forth a baskot, into Which
they rtitttrned -all save the coveted
hiws one, which tnennt another ride
five and made ithe holder very 'Illus
trious.. The young man sbxid all day
upon his narrow platform, aftlxlng
rings or holding forth the basket. Ho
was a sort of general squire In this
list of childhood. He was very busy.
And yet Sllmson, the astute, had no
ticed t'hait tihe young man frequently
found .time .to .twlsit about on his plat
form and smile alt a gh- w'ho shyly jold
(tickets behilnd a!lvered nutting. This,
Indeed, was the greait reason of Stlm
non'B glowering. The young man upon
ithe rtulsed plnitform had no manner of
OlK-ense to smile ait the girl behind the
rillvered netltlng. It was a most gigan
tic -'Insolence. Htimson was amazed
mt ft. "iiy jlmlny," 'he said to 'him
self again, "thalt fellow Is smiling at
my daughter." Kven In (his tone of
gresit wrath it could be discerned that
Stilmson was filled iwlch wonder ithat
any youth should dare smile at the
daughter. In the presence of t'he august
OfHen the dark-eyed girl peered be
tween the Uhluing wires, and, upon
(being dfrteoted by the young man, she
usually iturned her head away quickly
(to prove ito 'him thait she wan mot In
terested. At other 'times, however, her
eyei swmed filled with a .tender fear
lest lie nhould fall from itlhat exceed
ingly i dangerous platform. As for the
young man, It was plain ithat these
glances filled 'him with via lor, and he
. stood carelessly upon his perch, as If
ihe deemed It of no consequence that
he might fall from .lit. . In all the com
plexities of 'his dally life anil duties he
found opportunity to jriue ardently at
the vision bitilnd the nutting.
This . allei.t courtship was conducted
over the "ends of the crowd who
thronged about the bright machine.
The swift, eloquent glanceR of the
jvU'iiff mu.n weiut tiodaelessl:; tuid untreeii
with 'tholr message. There had finally
become established between the two In
this manner a subtle iinderntandinn
and companionship. They communi
cated accurately all that they wished.
The boy told his love, his reverence, his
hope in the chanKes of the future. The
Klrl told him that she loved him, that
she did not love him, that he did not
know If she loved liim. that she loved
him. Sometimes u little slun sayinK
"eashier" in gold letters, and haiiKlnir
upon 'the silvered meeting, got directly
In range and Interfered with a tender
The love affair had not continued
without anger, iinliiiiipiiiess, despair.
The girl had once smiled brightly upon
a youth who came to buy sntm tickets
for his little sister, and the young man
upon tlie platform observing this
smile had been tilled w ith gloomy rage.
He stood like a dark statue of ren
te a nee upon his pedestal and thrust
out the basket to tlie children with a
gesture that was full of scorn for their
hollow happiness, for their Insecure and
temporary Joy. For five hours he did
not once look at the girl when she was
h oking at him. He was going to
crush her with his Indifference; he was
going to demonstrate that he had never
been serious. However, when he nar
rowly observed her in secret he discov
ered that she seemed more blythe than
was usual with her. When he found
that his apparent Indifference had not
crushed her he suffered greatly. She
did not love him, he concluded. If she
had loved him she would have been
crushed. For two days he lived a mis
erable existence upon his high perch,
lie consoled himself by thinking of how
unhappy he was, and by swift, furtive
glances at the loved face. At any raite
he was in her presence, and he could
get a good view from his perch when
there was no interference by the little
i tn t suddenly, swiftly, these clouds
vanished ami under the Imperial blue
sky of the restored confidence, they
dwelt In peace, a peace that was satis
faction, a peace that, like a babe, put
Its trust in the treachery of the future.
This confidence endured until the next
day, when she, for an unknown cause,
suddenly refused to look at him. Me
chanically, he continued his task, his
brain dazed, a tortured victim of doubt,
fear, suspicion. AVith his eyes he sup
plicated her to telegraph an explana
tion. She replied with a stony glance
that froze his blood. There was a
great difference In their respective rea
sons for becoming angry. His were al
ways foolish, but apparent, plain as
the moon. Hers were subtle, feminine,
as Incomprehensible as the stars, as
mystic as the shadows at night.
They fell and soared, and soared and
fell in this manner until they knew
that to live without each other would
be a wandering In deserts. They had
grown so intent upon the uncertaintie.f,
the variations, the guessiugs of their
al'fair that .the world had become but a
huge immaterial background. In time
of peace their smiles were soft and
prayerful, caresses conlided to the air.
In time of war, their youthful hearts,
capable of profound agony, were wrung
by the intricate emotions of doubt,
They were the victims of the dread
angel of affectionate speculation that
forces the tired brain endlessly on
roads that lead nowhere.
At night, the problem of whether or
not she loved him confronted the young
man like a specter, looming as high ns
a hill and telling him not to delude
himself. I'pon the following day, this
battle of the night displayed Itself in
the renewed fervor of his glances and
111 their Increased number. 'Whenever
he thought he could detect that she too
wns suffering, he Ml a thrill of joy.
Hut there came a time when the
young'nian looked back upon these con
tortions with contempt. He believed
then that he had Imagined his pain.
This came about when the redoubtable
Stlmson marched forward to partici
pate. "This has got to stop," Stinison had
said to himself, as he stood and watched
them. They hud grown careless of the
light world that clattered about them;
they were become so engrossed in their
personal drama that the language of
their eyes was almost as obvious as ges
tines. And Stinison, through his keen
ness, his wonderful. Infallible penel ra
tion, suddenly came into possession of
these obvious facts. "Well, of all the
nerves,' "he said, regarding with a new
Interest the young man upon the perch.
He wns n resolute man. He never
hesitated to grapple with a crisis, lie
decided to orertiirn everything at once,
for, although small, he was very fierce
and Impetuous. lie resolved to crush
He strode over to the slivered net
ting. "Say, you want to ' quit your
everlasting grinning uit that Idiot," he
nne cast. uown ner eyes and made a
little heap of quartern Into a stack
She was unable to withstand the terri
ble scrutiny of her small and lleroe
Stlmson turned from hlrt daughter
and went to a spot, beneath, the plat
form. ,He fixed his eyes upon the young
man and said: "I've been speakin' to
Lizzie. You better attend strictly
your own business or there u be a new
man here next week." It wns ns If he
had blazed nway with a shotgun. The
young man reeled upon his perch. At
last he In a measure regained his com
posure and managed to stammer
"A all right, sir." He knew that de
nials would be futile wl:.h the terrible
Stlmson. He agitatedly began to rat
tie the rings In the basket and pretend
that ho was obliged to count them or
Inspect them In some way. He, too,
was unable to face the great Stlmson
For a moment, Stlmson stood In grent
satisfaction and gloated over the effect
of his thrent. "I've fixed them," 'he
said complacently, and went out to
smoke a cigar and revel In himself.
Through his mind went the proud re
flection that people who came In con
itact with his granite will usually ended
In quick and abject submission.

LAND OF LOW SALARIES.
Compensation for Services Is Dcgaurly in
Frank Carpenter In Chicago Herald.
Japan Is a land of low salaries. The
ollloinls do not get half as much as
ours, and the members of the house nf
peers unci of the house of representa
tives receive SW Japanese yen and their
travellnii: expenses. The yen Is now
worth about nil cents, so they receive
in reality only $ou n year. Our con
gressmen, you know, reck Ive ',,um. The
presidents of both houses receive 4,000
yen, and the emperor appoints ollicers
of tin., house of peers, and lie selects
those of (he house of 1'cpivscnlutivcH
from three candidates who are elected
by the house.
All of the voting In Ihe Japanese par
liament Is done in secret ballot. There
is a great deal of speech-making, and
the representatives grow very excited
when they discuss, the measures relat
ing to the government. Tint emperor
has the right to dissolve purlin nt,
and he has dismissed the last (wo
houses because they seemed inclined to
cut down the expenses beyond the pos
sibilities of running the government.
The dissolution caused a great deal of
xcltement over the country, and the
new election was much feared by the
administration. The country seemed
be torn up by the different factions,
but this has been nil done away with by
the war with China, and the emperor
will get all the money lie wants from

A Trihc Hint Is SniJ to Make Wine and

I'rofessor (timer's recent discoveries
In monkey talk have bi;en discounted
y a story from China, vouched for by
the famous traveler, Ir. Macgownn.
The doctor avers that there Is a race
if monkeys Inhabiting the mountain re
gion of the tircat Wall of China, that
have made extraordinary progress in
the nrt of making wine.
A recent edition of the ofllolrtl history
of Yungping states that lately a large
body of migrating monkeys passed a
certain village in crossing from one
mountain to another. The boys of the
vilagc clapped their hands and shouted
at the spectacle, ami the monkeys,
being frightened, fled, taking their
young In their arms, but dropping in
their Might a number of earthen vessels,
some of wiich would hold a quart. On
opening these the villagers found that
they contained two kinds of wine, a
pink and a green, that had been made
from mountain berries. It Is alllrmed
that the monkeys store this liquor for
use in the winter when the water Is

ent testimonies to similar facts, Includ

mortars to make wine, und he asks, "Is
