EAltk DAVESItAM was giving a
ilnnce and the great ballroom of
his houso wna (lllcd with a glit
tering crowd. At one end a man of
nbout thirty-nvo was sitting with a
young and pretty girl. His eye roamed
over the brilliant scone, and a hall
emtio played about his mouth.
"Lucky, lucky girl!" he murmured.
His companion looked up at him In
quiringly. There was a Blight spot of
color on her cheek.
Austin Drysdale Indicated the huge
room with a slight movement of his
"All yourst" he said softly. "To bo
had, not for tlio asking, but for Just
consenting to accept It. A title, Im
mense wealth, as husband an amiable
man of middle ago and Irreproachable
character. Wonderful!"
The Hush deepened on tho girl s face,
and she turned her head away..
"What nonsense you talk, Austin!
she remarked.
He laughed.
"Being your cousin, I'm privileged.
Besides, I've always made a point of
being frank with you. So let us discuss
tho Earl. Hero," he rattled one, "we
have a most useful member of the arts-,
tocracy sober, Industrious and given
to thinking seriously. He has drifted
on to middle age without having fallen

length he sees you, Miss Beryl Heath
cote, a delightful young creature, and
straightway determines to make up for
lost time. And tonight It will be set
tled, my dear, I'm absolutely certain
ho will propose tonight I'm never
wrong In these matters and tomorrow
you will be referred to In every bou
doir as the most designing young per
son In all London. In other words,
you will have succeeded where they
The girl was looking at the edge of
'her fan thoughtfully.
"I d'on't think I have tried," she said.
Drysdale laughed.
"Then you are more lucky than you
deserve to be. The Earl will be a
model husband, and, continuing to be
frank, Is a marvelous prize in the ma
trimonial market.
"Are you going to talk nonsense all
evening, Austin?" she remarked.
He shrugged his shoulders.
"It was mere cousinly exuberance of
spirits at your good fortune." He
paused. "Do you know," he added,
glancing at her quizzically, "I rather
thought you were a little interested in
Lumsden last year."
"Did you?" she said, calmly. Her
hands were fingering the tassle of her
"Yes," he continued. "But when he
went off to the war, and you didn't
seem to mind, we decided we were
wrong." He paused for a moment, but
the girl said nothing. "Anyway," he
went on, "it's just cy well we were
since he's done for now, poor old
She looked up quickly.
"Done for?" she said.
"Didn't you hear?" he cried. "He
was sniped In the leg, and has has got
a bad limp for the rest of his life. No
more soldiering. Haven't you seen
"No, no!" she said In a low tone.
"How could I?"
"He came back two days ago, and
Wardlaw insisted on dragging him here
"Here?" she exclaimed.
He nodded.
"I saw him a little time ago playing
cards In the smoking room. You see,
he can't dance now. He's cut off from
most things, and still a young man.
It's pretty rough to see him hobbling
about painfully with a big stick. Poor
old Lum! His luck was bad."
The girl was staring straight ahead
of her. She seemed to have hardly
heard his last words.
Drysdale glanced at her, then gave a
'little laugh as he noticed a man making
his way toward them.
"Ah, here comes the paragon of all
tho virtues and tho possessor of 70,
000 a year an interesting if somewhat
unusual combination your partner for
tho next dance!" ho said. "And, inci
dentally, for life also!" ho added with
a smile.
He got up from his seat leisurely, as
Earl Davesham came up to them. He
was a grave looking man of about
forty, his hair Just tinged with gray.
"Our dance, is it not?" he asked, with
a quiet smile.
She rose and took his arm. The music
had started, and they began to waltz.
A good many eyes were focused on tho
Bedate looking man and his beautiful
partner. They went around the room
twice. The Earl made a few common
place remarks, to which she replied
somewhat listlessly. There was a far
away look in her eyes.
"Shall wo sit out the rest?" he asked
at length.
Something In his tone roused her.
She glanced at him nnd saw that his
eyes were fastened on her face. She
felt a slight shiver run through her.
He did not notice that she went a
Bhndo pale.
"It's my favorite waltz," sho said In
a low, quick tone. "Do you mind If wo
dance lt through?" she added, forcing
a smile.
"By all means!" he said, courteously.
And away they wont again.
"But our next dance?" ho said grave
ly a moment later, "You will sit out
that with mo? I have something to
nay to you something of the greatest
Importance to me."
A feeling of helplessness crept over
"Vfiry well, then," sho said trembling
ly. "Our next dance."
Presently when the waltz was over.ho
had to leave her. Austin Drysdale
tauntered across to her, and at her re-
A Little Girl's Life Saved by Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera, and
Diarrhoea Eemedy.
Majel, the three-months-old daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. John Blue, of Itlch
land, Oregon, was ill with cholera In
fantum, so ill in fact that the local
physician hud given her up. Mr, and
Mrs. We8"0 Saunders were at tho
houso at tho time when the doctor told
them that their little daughter would
not recover, Mr, Saunders told his wife
that he know Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy would
cure the child and he at once secured
a bo'ttle and with the consent of her
parents gave the little sufferer a dose
of It, The baby at once wen,t to Bleep
nnd when ehe awoke the next morning
was out bf danger. This happened al
most three years ago. The child Is liv
ing and well today, and Mr. and Mrs.
Blue feel yery grateful towards the
manufacturers of this great remedy. I(

quest took her to a scat In one of tho
"I want to bo quiet for a moment or
so!" she exclaimed, "So plcnsc don't
talk much, Austin. Mr. Drummond Is
my next partner."
He looked ni her Inquiringly.
"Why didn't tho paragon take you
Into tho conservatory?" ho asked ban-torlngly.
I She gave a little sigh.
"Oh, the conservatory Is duo with
our next dance," she replied, and re
lapsed Into silence.
A door a few yards away from them
opened a few inches, nnd tho sound of
men's voices broke upon their ears.
"I Just came along from Cranston's
dinner party, and we had quite a dra
matic little scenel" cried one. "Young
Klvlngton, who has been Invalided
home, was there and a lot ot other
chaps. He drank champagne rather
heavily, and not being strong yet It
went to his head nnd he got excited.
Of course there was a lot of war talk
and Shcnton, the painter chap, mode
some asinine, sneering remark about
our fellows' work said that If ever a
man did a brave notion It was only
because he hoped to get tho V. C.
for It."
The voice pascd for a moment. Dry-
dale glanced ut Beryl and saw sho
was listening to every wosU. The voice
went on:
'Then young Rlvlngton sprang up,
his face aflame, and told Shcnton ho
was as good as a liar; said thcro were
hundreds of cases where men did big
things and kept It to themselves. Shen
ton laughed. Bivvy grew madder still,
and said he himself could give an In
stance. They were out at Modder
River doing patrol work, and coming
Into contact with the enemy had to
get under cover as best they could.
It was a fast thing, and in the scramble
back one of tho subalterns fell and
twisted his ankle. It wasn't noticed
for some little time. Then a captain,
finding it out, went back In the open
md brought him away under a storm
of bullets. He got badly hit himself,
but managed to do the trick. Only
Rlvvy and the subaltern knew what
had happened, and the chap who did
it bound them oyer to secrecy and made
them promise to say nothing about it.
He only gave out th"at he had been hit
by a stray shot."
The voice came to a stop.
"The dramatic part was that Rlvvy
in his excitement let out the name.
Who do you think It was? Why, old
Lum, who's somewhere about hero to
night, and the subaltern was young
tVrchle Heathcote."
"By Jove!" muttered Drysdale sud
denly. Ho looked at Beryl and saw
that she had gone pale, but there was
a sparkle in her eye.
"What do you think of that?" cried
tho voice in the room.
"Splendid!" murmured the girl out
side, clasping her hands.
Prom the ballroom they heard the
sound of the music starting again. A
young man came and looked down the
corridor, then walked up to them. It
was Cecil Drummond, her partner, a
nervous youth wllo stood in consider
able awe of her. She went ore and
danced with him. She hardly spoke
and seemed deep in thought. Sudden
ly a soft smile lighted up her features.
The wondering Drummond thought
she looked radiantly beautiful, and at
once came to a conclusion the Earl
had proposed to her. What girl would
not look happy under such circum
stances? She asked him to take her to tho
conservatory, which he did. There was
only one occupant a man at the far
end, who was hobbling across to a
chair. A light came Into the girl's
eyes as sho saw him. She turned to
young Drummond with a smile.
"Would you mind i I left you, Mr.
Drummond? I want to speak to Cap
tain Lumsden a moment. He is an old
Cecil Drummond gaped in astonish
ment, then muttering a reply turned
and vanished. Left alone, Beryl walk
ed with a light step down the conser
vatory. Lumsden had Just settled
himself, with his stick beside his chair,
when she came upon him. He looked
up and saw a glorious vision in white.
He recognized her the one woman ho
had ever loved. She was smiling and
holding out her hand to htm.
"Don't rise," she said as he attempt
ed to move.
They looked at one another for a mo
ment without speaking. Then she
dropped into a seat by his side.
'I'm so sorry," she said softly. Sho
fingered the stick meditatively. "Will
it bo forever?"
"Yes," he said between his teeth.
"forever. No more soldiering. All
there's left for me Is to hobble through
life as best I can on a few hundreds
a year private money and a wound
pension. The chances of war, you
know," ho said forcing a smile. "It's
only what we bargain for tho game
we play,"
She turned to him Impulsively. There
was n bright tear glistening on her
"I heard tonight, by chance, how It
happened how you risked your life to
save Archlo's," sho said In trembling
tones. "Why wouldn't you let him
speak?" she added gently.
Ho had gone rather white.
"How did you hear?" he stammered.
Archie promised faithfully."
"It was not Archie," she said quickly.
"I'll tell you some other time how It
happened. All I wa'nt to remember now
Is that you saved Archie, and I shall
be grateful to you all my life," sho
finished In n low tone.
He shifted his foot uneasily, but
could find no words to speak. Ho felt
his head was in a whirl.
"Do you remember thut night before
you loft England?" sho went on. "Wo
misunderstood one another. You must
have thought mo cruel."
"No, not cruel," ho murmured.
"I didn't know then" Her voire
came to a stop.
Ho turned his head suddenly and
looked Into her eyes, Ho saw something
In them that made the blood courso
through his veins.
He understood. For a moment ho
hesitated, then with an effort pulled
himself together,
"No, no, Beryl! 'You must not do
It!" ho cried hoarsely, "Think what It
means you, tied to a cripple; a long,
dull life; perhaps In a small country
town; very little nioney, yery little
fun!" he finished with a gulp.
"Perhaps the fun that money brings
Is not the fun I want," she said softly,
"You, with your youth, your bril
liant chances! No, dearest, I can't let
you make such a sacrifice. Besides, I
wouldn't take advantage of your grati
tude. That's why I forbade Archie to
speak. I would not have you marry
laid out of pity," ho said unevenly,

She laid a hand on his arm. Her
cheeks were flushed and her eyes were
shining with a light that could only
menn one thing.
"Not pity; It's love," she whispered.
"I thought I understood women," so
liloquized Austin Drysdale a few days
later, "but I don't. Fancy a modern
girl deliberately refusing a title and
seventy thousand a year, and insisting
upon giving up her life to a poor devil
with a limp, who didn't expect It and
who can do nothing but make, her su
premely happy! Wonderful!" Then a
smile crept over his face. "After all,
Lam's luck wasn't so bad not so bad

New York City's Postal Facilities
Aro Eeally Much Poorer Than
They Should Be.
W. E. Curtis, In Chicago Rccoid-Hcrald.
The local mall service about New
York city Is very much behind the
times. The people of London, Berlin,
Paris, St. Petersburg, Rome Vienna
and other European cities have a de
cided advantage of us in this respect.
Over there the collections and deliv
eries are so frequent that a person can
get an answer to a letter the same day
that It is written. You can write from
any place in London to any part of
that city, and if your correspondent
answers promptly the reply will be re
ceived within six hours. Tho same is
true In all of the other cities I have
named. Housewives order their mar
keting by post card. If they mall an
order to the butcher or the grocer be
fore 9 o'clock In the morning the goods
will be delivered before luncheon. This,
of course, Is a great convenience and
economy, which wc do not enjoy In
American cities, and during my pres
ent stay around New York I have been
struck with the delay and Inefficiency
of the service here. A letter mailed in
"Washington any time before 9 o'clock
In the evening reaches New York by
7 o'clock the next, morning, but it not
delivered north of Twenty-third street
before 11 o'clock, and In tho residence
district up-town, not until after noon.
A letter mailed at Washington with a
special delivery stamp upon It will
reach Its destination perhaps an hour
Oyster Bay is an hour and twenty
minutes from New York, yet a letter
posted there by the 4.14 train, with a
special delivery stamp upon it, is not
delivered at the New York Herald
building earlier than 9.30. A passenger
can make the trip from Oyster Bay to
the New York Herald building in an
hour and a half, but It takes a letter
live hours and a half, by actual experi
ence. Therefore the newspaper corre
spondents ut Oyster Bay are compelled
to hire a messenger and send him to
New York with their dispatches be
cause they dare not trust the mails.
Tho same is true of letters from Man
hattan Beach, which Is only forty min
utes from New York city and fifty min
utes from tho New York Herald build
ing. A letter 'mailed at the Waldorf
Astoria In the afternoon will not reach
Oyster Bay or Manhattan Beach until
tho next morning, although the former
Is only an hour and a half distant and
the latter fifty minutes. The trains run
frequently up till midnight; to Man
hattan Beach they run every hour. A
letter mailed In Atlantic City nt 3
o'clock In tho afternoon reaches New
York about 6. If It has a special deliv
ery stamp upon It It will be delivered
somewhere about 10 o'clock at night. If
It bears tho ordlnnry stamp It will not
be delivered until the next morning.
This Is my personal experience, and
tho local deliveries In New York city
aro oven slower. If a letter addressed
to any place In the city reaches Its des
tination tho same duy it Is mailed It is
fortunate, but that does not occur fre
quently. Not long ago I mailed a letter
at tho Waldorf hotel about 3 o'clock In
tho afternoon to a book store within
five minutes' wulk. It was not deliv
ered until tho early mall tho next
morning. It was taken up in the 4
o'clock collection, carried to the post
oillce, three or. four miles away, and
then brought back the next morning.
The postotllco authorities explain that
they cannot, deliver malls uny more
promptly, be'eause thoy lack the facil
ities, but congress appropriates some
thing over $100,000,000 a year to provide
facilities, and the money Is all expend

talking to the Duke of Sparta that he
seemed not to notice the crowd. The
Prince of Wales also seemed Indiffer
ent and stolid, but the Princess of
Wales bowed and smiled constantly.
It was not till the king's procession
came that there was any show of en
thusiasm. Lord Kitchener, Admiral
Seymour and General Gaselece, as they
rode together, of course came In for
much attention, but they all seemed to
look straight ahead and pay little at
tention to tho people along the route.
Lord Kitchener, in tho resplendent full
dress uniform of a general, also looked
unfamiliar, and many persons did not
recognize him.
The Indians were undoubtedly tho
most picturesque feature of tho 'proces
sion. The state coach of the king was
drawn by the fat Hanoverian horses
which figured in all of the late Queen
Victoria's processions.
The progress of the royal procession
was marked by no special Incident,
with the exception of an accident to
Lord Edward Pelham Clinton, one of
the grooms In waiting. The march
reached Its climax on the arrival at the
Abbey, where there was a scene of un
paralleled enthusiasm, which did not
cease until their majesties disappeared
in the annex.
The accident to Lord Pelham Clinton
created considerable excitement In tho
Mall. Tho groom In waiting, In a
closed carriage, was passing York
Steps when his conveyance collided
with another royal carriage going at
high speed in an opposite direction.
The horses fell, and there appeared to
be serious trouble. Tho police extri
cated the teams with some difficulty,
and Lord Pelham Clinton, wlp was
only slightly hurt, proceeded.
The procession follows:
First Tho Grand Duko of llcckllnburg
Strelltz, Princess Alice of Albany, the
Duke of Cambridge and Prince Frederick.
Second Princess Andrew and George of
Grecco and Princesses Victoria and
Louise of Battcnberg.
Third Princes Maurice, Leopold nnd
Alexander of Battcnberg, Princess Vic
toria Eugenic of Battonberg and the Prin
cess Beatrice.
Fourth Tho Duchess of Albany, tho
Duchess of Argyl and the Crown Plinco
and Crown Piincess of Roumanla.
Fifth Princess Louise and Augusta
Victoria of Schleswlg-Holstein, Princess
Victoria Patilcla nnd Princess Christian
of Schleswlg-Holstein.
Sixth Tho Duko of Sparta, Princess
Margaret of Connnitght, tho Duchess of
Connaught nnd tho Grand Duke of Hcsso.
Seventh Tho Duchess of Sparta, tho
Crown Plinco of Donmnrk and Prlnco
and Piinces3 Henry of Prussia.
Eighth, drawn by six black horses Tho
Crown Princess Chnrles of Denmnrk,
Lady Alexandra Duff, Princess Victoria
and tho Duchess of Fife.
In tho king's procession were:
First carriage A. V. Spencer and II. E.
Spencer, pages of honor, and tho Hon.
Mnry Dyko und the Hon. Sylvia Edwards,
malts of honor to tho queen.
Second Lord Knollys. tho king's pri

of tho king's privy purse, and Sldnoy

Third Lord Colvllle of Cujross, lord
chamberlain to tho queen; Lord Chelms

tho Hon. Charlotte Knollys. lady of tho

Fourth Viscount Churchill, a lord In

steward f his majesty's household; tho
Dowager Countess of Lytton, lady ot tho

Duchess of Bucclcuch, the mistress of

King's Gift to the Nation.
London, Aug. 10. King Edward has
signalized his coronation In a memor
able manner byi the munificent gift to
tho nution of the Osborne house, ono of
the favorite residences of the late Queen
The gift Is mude In the following
message to his people, addressed to
Prime Minister Balfour, For reasons
apparent in the document Itself, his
majesty makes his Intention public:
Under tho will of tho king's much be
loved mother, the Osborno houso estate
Is, as Mr. Balfour is aware, tho private
estate of the sovereign. Having to
spend a considerable part ot the year in
tho capital of this Icipudom and in Its
neighborhood, at Windsor, and having
also strong home tics in the county ot
Norfolk, which have existed now for
nearly forty years, tho king feels ho will
bo unable to maka adequate uso ot Os
borno houso as a royal residence and lie,
accordingly has determined to offer the
property In tho Islo of Wight us a gift to
tho nation. As Osborno houso Is sacred
to tho memory of tho late queen it is
tho king's wish that with tho exception
of thoso apartments which wero In tho per
sonal occupation ot her majesty, his peo
ple Bhall always have access to the
house which must ever bo associated with
her beloved name, As regards tho rest
of tho building tho king hopes it may bo
devoted to national purposes mid bo con
verted Into a convalescent homo for offi
cers of tho navy and army whose health
has bcon impaired in rendering service to
their country. If, in older to give full
legal effect to tho king's wishes It Is
found that application to parliament bo
necessary tho king trusts that Mr, Bal
four will sco that tho necessary steps aro
in due courso taken."
