A wail of a child at. midnight.
The chime of a minster bell,
Tbe sorrowful moan of a sorrowing soul,
. And the sound of a passing knell.
An old worn book, on a corner shelf.
And a spray of faded yew, .
A locket with hair all golden and fair.
And a ribbon of faded blue.
A needle-case, both empty and old.
And a case with hidden spring.
Wherein two golden watch keys lie,
A heart and a wedding ring.
I take the book from the corner shelf,
And the ribbon of faded blue.
And before me stands the form I loved,
With hair of a golden hue.
And I gaze so long In those earnest eyes.
That my soul grows weak with pain,
Then she fades away and I gently lay
The old book down again.
Every Other Saturday.

"Thanks," remarked Vane, musingly.
He moved his chair round to a posi
tion whence he could see the chic little
figure on the high bench before the
easel. In spite of their continual bick
erings and fallings out, the little figure
was the dearest In the world to Vane.
He became aware, presently that the
hazel eyes of Miss Ferrers were quizzi
cally returning his regard.
"What's on your mind. Teddy?" she
asked, smiling again and causing two
tantalizing dimples to dance about het
lips. "If you've come away from work

She took up her brush again and went
back to her painting.

color to die out of her cheeks.
"H'm!" she said, meditatively
"Thanks, rery much. I should be

rising and going orer to take a look at
Miss Ferrers proceeded deliberately
to make the cottage a white blot on
the landscape. She was wondering,
with a little hurt feeling at her heart
if he had really done caring for her, and
Vane, towering over her, was not look
ing at the sketch at all, but rather at
the ruffled golden hair and fair face,
with an expression In his honest blue
eyes that Gladys, with all her quick,
bright glances, had never been able tc
surprise from him.
There was a sudden rustling of silken
skirts in the hall, and the studio door
was opened to admit a dainty little
Flitting across the room she be
stowed a kiss upon Gladys, and a
bright, comprehensive glance upon
"I'm In trouble, sister," she 6ald,
leaning against Miss Ferrers' shoulder.

Her husband having entered and de
posited a large basket on the floor,
and himself in an easy chair, the little
woman dropped to the edge of a divan,
and balancing herself there with ex
treme nicety, heaved -a great sigh.
"What's in the hamper?" asked
Gladys, smiling over at her brother. '
The little woman broke into explann
"You Jiint can't think, Gladys," slit
lH-gan hurriedly. "Poor dear Horace

"That disposes of the family, then,"
Vane put In, smiling across at the anx
ious little woman.
"That's Just what it doesn't" replied
her husband, trying to frame a smile.
"You forget Van Winkle."
Gladys regarded her sister with a
frown of disapproval.
"Surely you won't leave Van Win
kle behind." she said.
"Surely Van Winkle Is Dot going U
New York with me," answered the hus
band, quickly. "I'm not the man to
carry a heavy cat In a hamper, three or
four days, through the streets of New
York, or to put him up at a hotel and
listen to his howls at night"
"But Van Winkle doesn't howl," pro
tested his wife. "He's a dear, pcaee

"Weil, the dear, peaceable cat can't
go with us. that's all," finished her hus
"I could leave him with auntie, only
she la so very forgetful, and she leaves
so, much to Bridget" There were teari
in the little woman's eyes as she turned
toward Vane. "We've had him for
even years, Ned." ahe aald, smiling
through her tears. Tflrer since we

There was silence for a moment 01
two during which MIsa Ferrers pen
lively eyed tbe silver gray Angora.
"I s'pose I am awfully wicked," she
said at length. "Helgho! Well, I ac
cept my punishment"
She took up her brush resignedly and
turned to her painting.
"But Glad dearest, I want yon to
listen to me for a moment'' expostula

Fire minutes later she wound up her
remarks by saying:
"You'll be very careful and not trust
him to auntie or Bridget, won't you.
Glad? It would just make me 111 to
lose him, and I couldn't keep house, I
Gladys shrugged her shoulders. Im
patiently. "I think I ought to understand," she
said, rather crossly. "Feed him three
times a day one-eighth of a pound of
stewed liver and one gill of milk; let
him sleep by the kitchen range at night

will be out of sorts, and be sure not to

If yon say another thing, I declare I

"But Glad," put In the little woman,

Vane found himself free to do so, he

guess, he ventured. "They don't go
well with cats, do they. Glad?"
"Don't be so perfectly sillyl" said
Miss Ferrers, severely. "And I'll thank
you not to laugh at my relatives."
Vane hummed a popular air and
sauntered about the room, inspecting
the sketches that adorned Its burlap-
covered walls. Finally he came round 1
to the little figure on the bench.
"To-morrow the dad is sending me to
Washington for three whole weeks of
business," he said, dismally. "Won't

"I'm sorry," said Misa Ferrers, very

at a smile.
During the first day . of his. exile,
Van Winkle conducted himself aa well
aa might hare been expected. It was
almost the close of the second day,
when Aunt Theo and Mlsa Ferrers
were sipping their afternoon tea, that
they first missed him. With the aid of
long-suffering Bridget the little bouse
was searched from garret to cellar. No
Van Winkle waa forthcoming. The
fact was that discovering the door

It happened that Vane bad been de
layed a day In his trip, and having re
pented his hasty leare-taklng of Miss
Ferrers, had called to tell her as much.
So it was that wheq he opened the door
boldly and stepped Into the porch. Van
Winkle, 'suddenly seeing the world be
fore him, took to bis heels and ran
away as fast as erer he could, with
Vane close upon him.
As Vane gained on him Van Winkle
grew the more frightened, and finally I
subsided and crouched shivering in the j
snow. Vane put two big hands
weightily upon him, and gathering him
up, was about to return him to the
house when It struck him suddenly
that it would be a good little Joke on
Gladys if she thought for a little that
Van Winkle was really lost
He went up to a side of the veranda,
and lifting the hinged end ever so little,
thrust Van Winkle In, and dropped the
board again. Then be presented him
self at the' door.
All was confusion. Bridget with' a
irow, was scratching at all the dark
orners of the hall, and heaping abu
ilve langauge upon all coon cats.
Aunt Theo with her glasses on
wrong side up and a much bejidldcred
expression on her pretty old face, was
wringing her hands silently.
Gladys herself, who had led tbe hunt
was gathered In a miserable little heap
5n the staircase, crying bitterly.
Sh looked up for a moment at the
lound of Vane's voice.
"What Is It7 What's the trouble?"
he asked Aunt Theo, grarely.
"Oh, Teddy," sobbed the voice from
the staircase, "you know Bhe said it
would break her heart, and there were
:ears in her eyes, too, Teddy!"
"Cut what's the matter?" again
"Van Winkle is lostl" walled Miss
Ferrers. "Oh, to think It should hap
pen when I Oh, 1 wouldn't have
iad It' happen for anything in the
world. They're had him seren years.
Vane looked grave enough.
"I say, Gladys, don't alt there: get
;-.p and find the cat," he said.
"But we've hunted the whole house
iver," moaned Miss Ferrers.
"H'm! Go outside and look ror nim.
He won't have gone far in this !
-ow. He's too pampered. 1 11 wax
ant we can find him."
There was muglc In the Httle pronons
"Oh, Teddy," gasped Miss Ferrers,
smiling at him through her tears, "If
,uly you will help nie, I'll do anything
a the world I can for you! I'll even
aiarry you!" she cried triumphantly.
Vano shrugged his shoulders.
"H'm! You've promised that before
and failed," he said. Indifferently.
Nevertheless he went out of the
house, and round and round the lawn,
searching diligently. .When, finally, he
thought a plausible length of time had
elapsed, he went back to the piazza,
and lifting the lattice end, ever so lit
tle, seized Van Winkle, and tucking the
frightened creature under hia arm
strode Into the house. '
So one was to be seen save Gladys,

who was groping with an umbrella ban- R

him all right"
Gladys hugged the restored treamir I

slater could have done.
"Oh, Teddy, you're such -a comfort!

"Thanks," said Vane. "By tbe way,

a huff yesterday. We've been such
good familiar friends all our lives, that
I forget sometime that you aren't my
sister. I hope youH forgive me for be
ng such a boor."
"Certainly." Gladys aald smiling, and
wondering in her heart what he meant
by such politeness.
"You forget what I promised yon If
yon found Van Winkle, Teddy," she
said, rallying him on his good conduct
"Oh, never mind that" Vane laughed
carelessly. "I know better than to try
to bold yon to your promisee."
"But I meant It Teddy," urged Miss
Ferrers, causing the tantalizing dim
ples to play about her sinking lips.
"Yes, no doubt" Vane said ruefully.
"We'll speak at more length on the
subject when I have returned from
Washington. Until then, good-by.
.He offered bis hand In a quiet, friend
"Good-by, Teddy." said Miss Ferrers,
still smiling, and thinking In her heart
that she liked the old boisterous Vane
much more than this proper young fel

and she had heard the outer door close,
she put her face down on the lid of tbe
piano and kept It there for two or three
nlnntes. - - -

brokenly, "I meant every word of the
promise. I did! I did!"
"Did you?" asked a familiar voice

Gladys started up. Vane stood close
by her, his handsome young face cov
ered with smiles. An angry flush
burned the tears from her eyes.

his arm about her. --
"Yes. I did!" answered Miss Ferrers,
crossly. Wa verier.

. Kenneth'a Debt.
"Mother, I want It Just drtail.uJj .
tnd It don't cost but a quarter."
But Kenneth's mother only replied
patiently, as she had done several
'I am sorry, dear, but I can't give
you even a quarter."
'All the same. I am going to have
that rooster," Kenneth proclaimed to
the younger children, who gathered
around him. "I never can hare any-
hlng. Mother could gire me that quar
:er Just as well as not" In his heart
ie knew that this charge was not true,
Out it made him feel better to say so.
When the children came trooping in
to supper that night Ray ran to her
aiother, her blue eyes shining with ex
citement "Mother, mother. Kenneth got the
banty rooster, and the coop is all made
for It; and blmeby he's going. to have a
hen and lots of little chickens and sell
tbe ecrgs and buy a tarui, and we're all
going to live there."
Kenneth looked somewhat defiant as
he took his seat; but when bis mother
said gravely,, "Where did you get that
rooster, Kenneth?" the answer was
prompt and frank, "Don't yon worry
about that, mother. That's all right
honest. It Is."
Mrs. Miller was In the habit of trust
ing her children, so the subject was
dropped. The rooster flourished in his
uew home, and all tbe children fed blm,

number of times be crowed. Matters

"What are yon going to pay her

"I thought maybe you could spare It
by and by. or maybe Eddie or Nan
would give It to me. or maybe I might
Ond it on the walk, like Jimmy Law-
-anM did. '
They talked orer It a little more,
and together they decided that Ken
neth must make his own plans to pay

He wore a very pusaled face for sev

mother, he breathed a woe-begone .slgh:

are likely to be used exclusively, at

Up to this time china has been used

The paper teeth are made of papier-
mache, which la submitted to a treuien
dous pressure until they are as hard as
required. Their peculiar composition
renders them cheap, and the price of a
set of teeth will go down considerably
owing to the new Invention. The color
af the papier-mache can also be made
to vary, which Is an Important point.

An Irishman who served on board a
man-of-war, says the Oxford Demo
crat (Maine), was selected by one of
the officers to haul In a tow line of con-,
slderable length that was dragging
over tbe tatrrau.
After pulling in forty or fifty fath
oms of the line, which put his patience
severely to proof, as well as every
muscle of his arms, he muttered to
himself, but loud enough to be over
heard by an officer:
"Sure, It's as long as to-day and to
morrow I It's a good week's work for
any five In tbe ship. Bad luck to the
leg or arm If 11 hive last! What!

After continuing In a similar strain
and conceiving there was fittle proba
bility of the completion of his labor,
he suddenly stopped short, and looking
up to the officer on the watch, he ex
