Will he ho able to save the di owning girl, who lias a second time sunk out of right? Can he do It? But ho does not nsk. Watching where the water last closed oer her until the half unconscloud foun again approaches the sutface, he grasps her at the hack, attempting to support her thus until the boat, now diawlng neai, may give assistance. Hut with the fien.y common to tho di owning, she clutches him about tho ncc. and drags hlmdnwn. Those watch ing tiom the boats feel that both are diowncd, but the stiong" arm and dauntless coinage of Paul Benedict are not to bexleteated, nnd nt last they again ilse to the surface, this time so near the npptoachlng bunt that with the tardy assistance ot Percy Hoi; den she Is lifted, unconscious, and placed In Mazle Dennle's arms. A second time Peicy Holden leaned out to assist tho now exhausted res cuer, but not so; his hold upon the boat side relaxed and he sank back Into tho water. Kor another he hnd gladly nt copted his assistance; for himself ho could not. When after a few si conds of exhaustion he was seen to turn and slowly -swim towaid the shoie, there was tho light of newly awaked emotion In Mazle Dennle's countenance. .loy and pride in his br.ivciy seemed still half mingled with fear fear that she might yet lose something which had suddenly be come precious in her sight. Among the pleasures planned for the guests of Gray Swan had been that of a tiip to the Kali field mines, with Paul Benedict, to whom cveiy cham ber of thof-e gieat undergiound caverns was familiar, to act as guide. On Kiiday mottling, all haing rccov eied f i om the effects of the Incident Just i elated, rjiay Swan Cottage was a scene of activity at an eaily hour. A picnic dinner In a gtoe ovei looking the valley was n featuio of the day. All hands weie husj In packing the baskets of goodies and putting In tead-lnc-s other ncccssoi les for tho day's plcasuie. By ten o'clock the paity weie at the station, whence a shoit lide by trolley would biing them to their destination. The mm nlng was fair, nnd as the swift lljlng tiolley sped onward, ocr hills, with glimpses of blue mountain chains bejond, and down the alles, decked with Ileitis of waving coin, Joy and gladness .seemed evident eveiy wheie. The bieezc that swept thiough tho open tout 1st car, causing hats to loso their balance, and tossing into dlsti acting confusion tho ringlets sur lounding the fair young faces, seemed but In keeping with the icckless gaiety which had taken possession of all nilndti sne one. To Paul Benedict tho life beneath tho giound suggests too much of haidship and suffeiing for him to contemplate it een trom a dis tance, In the spit It of mltth evident among his companions. It Is with evi dent ellott that he meets the talllery and jesting woids of those about him, for his own thoughts awakened dur ing the piecedlng dajs, helps to out weigh the buoyancy of spirit which na na e would fcugge.st. Noontide finds the party dining be neath tho shade of oaks and pine ttees, which clothe the hills on the western outskiits of the town. The view which lay betoie them was indicative of a diffeient life than that tiom which a two hours' i Hie had tianspotted them. That, a fairyland of beauty nnd plcasuie; this, a land of stein reali ties acthities and toil. Long black mounds of culm lay stietohed act on, tho valley, with heie and theio a tall black bieaker rising like dink skeleton llgures fiom the sui rounding blackness. On the not th orn and southern hoilzons distant wteaths of smoke nie Issuing from other skeleton llguies, nnd other black mounds, these constituting the only visible eldence of this monaich of Industilos, which, hidden In the deep bosom of the eaith, has honeycombed for many miles the Lackawanna val ley. An King at the mines, the paity aio taken down In the little lion cage to n depth of soveinl hundred feet. Al though they Unci tho atmospheto some what lepulsivo to nosttlls accustomed to the sweet-scented air of vetdant hills, and the gruesome darkness send ing "cieeps" along their spinal vette brae, yet the splilt of tho weukest does not taller. They aio bent upon teseatch and adventuie, nnd to what young being, filled with the abundant vitality of healthful life, is thoie not fascination in eaith's mysteiles and snuggles, oven though death and de sttuctlon aro mingled In Its conillctH? Kor a few moments they watch tho foiiom-looklng mules patiently plod ding back and fntth with their bur den ot black rocks, only woiklng out their llvrw In daikness, anil yet filling an impottant putt In this bulled world of activity. Down where the great steam pumps aio forcing out the water they ato told of an nniloi ground flood. How a tlft n tho earth above had once let a toirent come pouting Into the mines, filling tho wtuklng until men, mules and niachlnety weto all alloat, und gtavo disaster was only prevented by cutting a now channel for tho mountain brook, which had by ciiunco found so deep a bed. As they penetiatu a long low cham ber, fiom which the iuIucih nie busily bieaklug out the black diamonds and doll voi lug them, to tho waiting tais, they engage in convocation one whoso bent form and scaried fmo Indicate long experience In this hidden lealm of chance nnd labor, Whon asked what caused the scais which seamed his cheek and btnw, he turned und point ed to a deseited chambei. "Some locks fell on mo down In thete." he said, "and these ute Ihu minks they gae me." When prcatod for further details, he told how a heavy blast In an adjoining Lhamher had caused the unsuppoitcd roof of the low w oi king to iiiie In. How the pas. t,i',-e wis tilled with iucl lor stiuh it distant e that for ttnee days they weiu ImptUouei) behind the wall with two dead lonmules In their misl, and ili.U his own sun had died when help 99 T wns so near that they could hear tho voices of the workmen who were tear ing down tho blockading rooks. It was only nn Incident of mine life, told without emotion or mention of the ngony of hunger, thirst and pain enduted, nor tho keener suffering of the long suspense. Uncli group ot mlnciH could disclose some tale of adventure, sometimes wolrd or gro tesque, hut often suggestive of widow ed wives and sorrowing sweethearts, and tho stolid heroism of a commun ity of men who know no fear and slit Ink not "front danger. The vlsltois came at last to the mouth of a low dark channel which Paul Benedict tells thorn opens at a distance of two bundled feet Into what hnd been tho l Idlest vein of oie In all the wot kings In the company's pos session. Peering Into the Inky darkness of tho nartow channel, a dim light which mudc Its way down thiough ventilat ing shafts and a distant slope Into tho spacious gullet y beyond, enticed a portion of the patty to pi ess forwaid Into the low passage hofoio their guide could say them nay At a won! of warning tho more prudent ones with drew, but not so Peicy Holden nnd Mazle Dennie. Calling to their com panions to await their return, they press forward with heads bent low to escape the toof. Kor half an hour those left behind counted off the min utes Impatiently, thinking that when left alone they would soon lettiin; but to Paul Benedict, who knew too well the dnngeis of the trcaciieious foul damp, the minutes ' seemed like hours. He rcgietted that ho had not rushed forwaid and foicibly dniwn back the girl who had so thoughtlessly embraced the greatest danger. Becoming convinced that they had fallen victims to this deadly clement, ho directed tho lemalndor of the patty to nticond to the suifaco and make their way to the opening of the slopo leading from tho laigor channel. If he did not meet them theie, they should apply for a rescuing paity, who would enter the mine fiom this outer pas sageway. Ho then ptessed forward into the low channel, sea ice dating to Inhale the stagnant air, lest he, too, should be stiicken down befoie he had lesctied her he t-ought. When about two-thlids the distance had been' pass ed he came upon them, both uncon scious, and ho feaied dead. In an in stant he wns canying foiw.trd the trail girlish foim; and in a moment moie had t cached the bto.ulcned mouth of the channel, but none too soon; for his own breath came in slioit, con vulsive gasps, and Ills bialn .seemed reeling. When he had i cached nosh air beneath a eutilatlng shaft and found by hasty examination that life had not gone out fiom Mazle Dennle's bieast, then a momentous question presented It&olf. Should he leave her here upon the damp eaith, and at the peril of his own life ictuin to the les cuo of the man w ho had pushed him aside and supplanted ,him in the thoughts of her -whom he loved? Or should he cairy her torwnid to the waiting lrlcnds and dispatch a icscu iug party for the other? Koinier ex perience told him by that time the foul damp would have completed its deadly wotk. Tho pale, still lonn be foie him appealed to him for caio, and een now Peicy Holden might be beyond recall; but in his inmost soul he felt the impulse of a duty to be pertoim, and though featan was whis pering in hks ear, the Chi 1st piinci plo within him tiiumphed. With gi eater bravery than is icqulr ed to face a cannon's mouth, he ic tiaced his steps, and In a few mo ments brought to tho foot of tho shaft his now unfortunate ilval. Klfteen minutes later Mazie Dennie, stll unconscious, was placed in th aims of her waiting friends, but when a half hour later Peicy Holden, icvived by the fresh air ftom the shaft, was assisted up the slope, she was sitting up with pulses again active, and a catriage was waiting to convey them to tho station, whence they would ic turn to Lake Lanoie. When Paul Benedict had seen the light of con sciousness in Mazle Donnio's eyes, and know that his piesence was no longer noccessary, he had withdiawn to or der a carriage, and with the cnnlngp came a note to his hostess saying that it would bo impossible for him to le turii with tho party to liiay Swan Cottage. It was a quiet parly which i etui nod that evening, nor did the following day find tho occupants ot Giay Swan in their usual mood. To Mazle Dennie life eomed sud denly to have lost Its cliaim. Why had Paul Benedict loft her thus abiuptly, whon she would havo poured out to him tho love and gialltude or her very soul? She had thoughtlessly trifled with his affections for the pleas ure of the hour, but not until tho passion of love had taken conscious possession of her own heait did she realize the pain her tilfllng may havo cost. Not many days elapse befoie a lottor finds Its way to Paul Benedict's desk, which occasions his lettiin to dtay Swnn. Again he stands at twilight looking out over tho beaiititul expanse of wa ter nnd watching the Incoming bouts. But how diffeient to him now nppo.ufl the scene than when thus viowed a week before. Tho low sweet music on tho summer uir, tho tints tellected ftom the toso ate sky, ate but a lefleetlon of tho waimth and gladness tilling his own being. And to Malo Ronnie, w hosn boat Is slowly diawlng near, the woild once mote seems fair, and the stalwait llg tiro -waiting on tho shoie, tho noblest specimen of nntuio's handlwoik, THE HOBO TltEIGHT CAR. How to Get a Maine Centinl Car Homo from Wnco, Texas. Carl lioiry in Mii:kc'. The car accountant is a tUal in stant e of development in tho lailm.td business. In the tally das ho did not exist, Tho supeiiutendeut was supposed to know In a general way what was being done with the company's tuis. The- ciihtom was for tailioads lu can tlliiiugh fielfiht as fur as the end of their own linen In their own cms.

Railroads permit all loaded cars to go through to their destination without transfer, and allow one another a certain sum for the use of the "nrs.

It produces tho extraordinary processions of tnany colorod travolotH from distant lands that delights the eye of youngstof? at a railroad crossing. In theory, the cnts nre permitted to run thtotigh over 'fotclgn roads to their destination, on the condition Hint on their arrival they shall he unlo.tdcl piomptly and started on the Journey home. In prnctlce, the ft eight agent Is apt to use the cars that aro most handy, rcgnidloss of their ownership. An agent In Minneapolis would hardly think twice before tilling up a Maine Central freight car with a consign ment for Manitoba. The ngont nt Manitoba would not surfer a pang ot conscience If ho found himself stulllng the same Maine rar with a rnigo of supplies, for Waco, Texas. Thus are begun tho wanderings of a car t'i which, If It wcro not for th( car ac countant and his memoranda, there would sometimes lie no end. It Is by no moans easy to bring tho wnndereis home. When the Maine Ccntinl'B car accountant learns trom his icpoits that nU car Is being unduly knocked about on foiclgn loads his first news Is that it has spent weeks in the yards at Minneapolis. A truccr is at once forwarded to the transput ta tlon ucjnrtnient of the t.tllioad which Is believed to bo Holding tho car. By this time the car is on Its way to Manitoba. A tracer follows It thete, but with tho similar result that tho car has been dispatched for the South west. A letter to tho company opc'tut Ing tho lino out of Wnco nrlngs tin answer to the effect that the car s thete, but Is being held to awnit the disposition of tho consignee, or that It Is cilpplcd nnd has bc-n ittn Into tho shops for icpalis, or that It has been loaded again, In w hlch case tho com pany piomlses politely to unload it and send it home Immediately. Then the car Is piomptly (-witched off on to a branch lino for some local conslgnco and Is not heaid of again except by tho needy agent who captured It until It turns up In a tall-end collision In tho state of West Vhglnln. Luckily It is not a bit lnjuied, und Is able to con tinue its wanderings, puisued by moie and moie vlgoiously worded corres pondence, until somebody sends It home. WOMEN IN KOREA. Lower Class Must Work, Upper Class Must Be Entombed. Amu .Vorthcnd Ilciijiinin in Aimlcc's. Wo may say without hesitation that tho lot of the Koican woman is the most pitiable, just as tho position of her people is the most deplorable, In the K.ir Kast. Uvory dcgi ailing idea emanating from China is here can led to an otieme. Tho wife is not more than a chattel, seldom scon before the m.iniage, which is ai ranged by a "go between" (as in China and Japan), and after niarilago to talk to her even Is a dogiadation for the husband. In the lower classes she must wotk, work, wotk. In tho tipper classes she must be entombed. A few instances will give point to these facts. In tho city of Kusan, In tho southern Korea, there lived a Korean wife of tho upper, though not the noble, class. She had boon i cach ed In her homo, which was her prison, by some young women missionaries. One night, with tho consent of hor husband, they planned to take her to visit the Japanese settlement neai by. It lay only half a mile away, but the woman had never seen it. This event took tho place in her life that a trip abioad does with us. She said that for many eais she had scon nothing moie than the roof of her husband's house. Now she had something to think of until sho died. A Koiean gill has no name. She Is known as So-and-So's mother, when .she becomes married and has a son. Her husband calls her by her son's name. A husband In Koi ea is entitled to a divorce on the ground of his wife's incompatibility with her mother-in-law. The professions of sorceiess, Buddist nun and dancing girl seem tho only avenues by which the Koiean woman may escape her bondage. Though In some cases tho adoption of Christianity has led to a better state of alfniis, yet tho attempt at innova tion seems almost hopeless. A young Koiean couple in Kusan had become Chilstlans, and tho husband, being the right hand of one of tho missionaries, went with him on long nips into tho country. Ho had fallen In love with his little wlfo a very unusual thing anil, in his treatment or her, wished to emulate the example of his foiclgn fi lend. When ho and the missionary found that they were to be In a cer tain village for a few days, they sent for their wives. "Where do you wish to go?" Inquir ed tho father-in-law of the Korean girl. "To see our husband," was tho re sponse. Thereupon, he forbade his daughter-in-law to take the nip, saying that his son would bo the laughing stock of the city, and ho could not ullow her to cieato such a scandal. On another occasion when this same Koiean husband was away, he wioto a letter to his wire; but tho father-in-law was ashamed to glvo It to her, declaring that It was n violation of all Korean custom. Tho women lu this country nro often unhappy nnd Intelligent enough to renlUe tho misery of their position. In a way, they aio moie spirited than tho women of tho neighboring coun tries, for they havo fits of uucouti oiled cnger, during which they tear their hair, cut themselves and generally make things fly. At such a time tho husband may use much hasto and tact In getting out of tho way or he may retaliate by some eitectlvo blows, or later by a dlvoice. It Is an Interesting fact that, while as a nation tho Kor eans ate least assertive, Individually they aio mot a apt to glvo way to violent nuthuists of temper than either the qhlnoso or Japanese. When a Koiean woman Is deeply incensed sho reduces eveiythlng to a simple equation, fotgettlng lu her fuiy tho teathlngs of Confucius, and her con tuties of subjection. Wo have it In us to wish that all Koiean womankind would rise up In simultaneous ttenzy nnd tiamplc the tdd older ol thliigh to death under toot. I cm Imagine the whole army of Korean men set ambling hastily to cover! Insomnia is caused by a deiangement of the nerves.

IT WAS A bright spring nftcrnoon, nnd Wnrgrave wan sitting before his easel on tho lonely shore at I'etiolth, putting the Mulshing touches to a small plctuie. He was a ninn of about 3r, his hair Just tinged with giay, yet not old In ap pearance. lie laid down his hiush, anil pulling out his pipe, proceeded to Hll It lols uicly. Piesonlly he wnp roused from his re flections by the sound of a light foot step, nnd looking nround, ?nw .1 young girl nppionchlng him. "Not lea time yet, Joan?" he cried. Sho smilingly shook her head. Sho was a pretty ghl ot 21, with shady gt,ay eyes, nnd a complexion as tiear as tho Cornish air Itself. Sitting down on the ledge of tcck beside him, sho gravely criticised tho canvas. "What pay you, O child ot the sea and winds?" he asked with a glance at the btlght young face. She turned to him enthusiastically, a flush on her cheeks. "I think It's splendid!" she cried. "The best you've dono since yott'va been with us." "Only fair to medium, T fancy. I've never got bevond thnt, you know," ho milled thoughtfully. The girl glanced at htm, nnd saw Ihat he wns gazing seaward In vacant fashion. Instinctively sho knew tho bend of his thoughts. "A failure couldn't have dono this'" she said gently, her eyes on tho pic ture. Ho gave a slight start nnd laughed softly. "Thank you, little girl," he crlod. "But even your kindly comment doesn't alter the one great undeniable fart!" "What war. tho life you mnpped out?" she r.sked quietly. A momentary gleam kindled In his eyes. "My dreams? Oh, the usual ones of the joung man who does not know tl.nt the thing that has been given him Is not genius, but only a tiny spnrk of It. I was to be a big artist, paint wondeiful pictures that would bring me lasting fame and position. I was to lead a dazzling life, see tho world, mlv with Its masteis, explore Its tt ensures." His voico came to a stop. The girl watched him with beating heart; be was staling Into space, a far-away look In his eyes. "I had another a little later!" he went on in a low tone, "r wns still to do all these things, but not for my own siko alone to win a woman." He paused and noticed his pipe had gone out. Mechanically his lingers felt for another match. "Yes, I loved that woman, Joan!" ho continued. "I assined her confidently that I would woik like a slave to achieve success, that In a short time I would accomplish this and be able to mai ry her." He g.uo a little low laugh. "Koitunatclv for herself, she know better, nnd foresaw my futuie with admliable clearncssi. Slip settled tho joint bv marrying an extiomely weal thy man." The girl raised her head. Sho was a trifle white, but ho did not notice It. "And you never di earned again?" she asked slow Iy. "No, as tho years clilfted on, a calm philosophy fell on mo. until now ou see me as I am, my very small private income and tho proeeds of soiling my pictures to tho dealers just en abling mo to lead a life In a quiet, out-of-the-way place like Penelth." His eyes icsted for a moment on tho clear loofs of the tiny town, then he turned lound quickly to her with a smile. "You see I am reconciled now," ho said. "Tho months I havo spent here, living in tho house with ou and your aunt", have been the best thing in my life. We've had a jolly time together, haven't wo?" Joan mse to her feet. Sho was smil ing npw, and tho color in hor cheeks had deepened slightly. "Yes, we've got on well!" she said. "I must tun on now to see about tea mind you aio not more than a quaiter of an hour," sho added In a laughing tone of command ns sho hurried away. She walked swiftly alone tho road to the town, her h"nd bent In thought. The daughter' of a Cornish eloigyman, Joan Hesketh had nn his death found herself pinctlcally penniless. She had gone to living at Penelth with her aunt, who, owing to a stroke of ill-fortune, was obliged to let a por tion of her little house. Thus It was that AVaigiave. the artist, had come to live with them some IS months ago. What his piesence now meant to the glil, sho hoiself only know.
