If ho had hitherto doubted where his

ly, hopelessly and Irrevocably he had
crushed out of his soul the hope and
promise of the new life dawning for
him above the dead ashes of the past.
It was not easy to do. lie had not
ended it yet. He did not know bow.
There were ties to be severed, friend
ships to bo gently broken, old scenes
to be forgotten, memories to kill.
Thero was also love to be disposed of.
And he did not know how.
First of all, paramount in his hope
less trouble, the desire to save others
from pain persisted.
For that reason he had been careful
that Gerald should not know where
and how he was now obliged to live,
lest the boy suspect and understand
how much of Selwyn's little fortune It
had taken to settle his debts of "hon
or" and free him from the sinister
pressure of Necrgard's importunities.
For that reason, too, he dreaded to
havo Austin know, because If the truth
were exposed nothing in the world
could prevent a violent and final sep
aration between him and the foolish
boy who now at last was beginning to
show the flrat glimmering traces of
character and common sense.
So ho let It be understood that his
address was his club for the present,
for he also desired no scene with
Boots, whom he knew would attempt
to force him to live with blm in his
cherished and brand new house. And
even if he cared to accept and permit
Boots to place him under such obliga
tions It would only hamper htm In bis
duties, because now what remained of
his Income must be devoted to Allxe.
Even before her case had taken the
more hopeless turn he bad understood
that she could not remain at Clifton.
Such cases were neither desired nor
treated there. He understood that
And so ho had taken for her a pretty
little villa at Edgewater, with two
trained nurses to care for her and a
phaeton for her to drive.
And now sbe was installed there,
properly cared for.urrounded by every
comfort, contented; except In the black

Incoherent, but it remained always a
memory and always a happy one.
He was obliged to go to her every
three or four days. In the interim she
seemed quite satisfied and happy, busy
with the simple and pretty things she
now cared for, hut toward the third
day of his absence sbe usually became
restless, asking for him and why he
did not come. And then they telegraph
ed him, and be left everything and

quivered under the misery of it and he
turned to the curtained window, bands

force back the strangling agony in bis
throat. And the dreadful part of it all
was that ber appearance bad remained
unchanged unless, perhaps, she was
prettier, lovelier of face and figure than
Thinking of these things now, he
leaned heavily forward, elbows on the
little table. And suddenly unbidden
before bis haunted eyes rose the white
portico of Sllvcrslde, and the green
sward glimmered, drenched In sun
Bhlne, and a slim figure In white stood
there, arms bare, tennis bat swinging
In one tanned little band.
Happily for Eileen, happily for him,
alas, love In Its full miracle had rp
malned beyond her comprehension.
That she cared for him with all her
young heart he knew; that sbe bad not
come to love him be knew too. So that
crowning misery of happiness was
spared him. Yet he knew, too, that
thero had been a chance for blm; that
her awakening had not been wholly
And now, leaning there, bis face

across hU face.
, But storms, given right of way, pass
on and over, and tempests sweep hearts
cleaner, and after a long while he lift
ed his bowed head and sat up, squar
ing his shoulders.
Presently he picked up bis pipe again,
held it a moment, then laid It aside.
Then be leaned forward, breathing
deeply, but quietly, and picked up a
pen and a sheet of paper, for the time
bad come for his letter to her, and he
The letter he wrote was one of those

And signed his name.
Nina and Eileen, In traveling gowns
and veils, stood on the porch at Silver
side, waiting for the depot wagon,
when Selwyn's letter was banded to
The girl Hushed up, then, avoiding
Nina's eyes, turned and entered the
house. Once out of sight, she swiftly
mounted to her own room and dropped,
breathless, on the bed, tearing the en
velope from end to end. And from
end to end and back again and over
again she read the letter at first in
expectancy, Hps parted, color brilliant,
then with the smile still curving her
cheeks, but less genuine now, almost
mechanical, until the smile stamped
on her stiffening lips faded and the
soft contours relaxed, and sbe lifted
her eyes, staring into space with a
wistful, questioning lift of the pure

And now Nina was calling her from
the hall below, and sbe answered gay

glove, came down the stairs.
"I'll tell you all about the letter in

well and evidently quite happy, and,
"I want to send hlin a telegram,
"A dozen if you wish," said Mrs,
Gerard, "only if you don't climb Into
that vehicle we'll miss the train."
So on the way to Wyossett station
Eileen sat very still, gloved hands
folded In ber lap, composing her tele-
gram to Selwyn. And once in the sta
tion, havlig It by heart already, she
wrote It rapidly:
Nina and I nre on our way to the Berk-
shires for a week. House party at the
CralES . We stay overnight In town.
But the telegram went to his club

from time to time, the man she await

villa at Edgewater.
"How long has she been asleep?"
asked Selwyn under his breath.
"An hour. She fretted a good deal
because you had not come. This after

PIG MAN'S EASY JOB.
Average Family Eats a Quarter Ton
of Pork In a Year.
By Professor HAItltT HAYWOOD, Dela.
That pork production Is an Important
agricultural Industry Is shown by the
fact thut In the year 1000 the average
private fnmlly ate u little over half a
ton of meat, nearly half of which wu
pork. This fact Is explained by anoth-
fr fact pigs for various reasons are
more profitable animals to rnlse than
beef steers or sheep and on this tic-
ount always have occupied and prob
ably always will occupy a prominent
place in Amerlcnn agriculture.
In the first place, pigs are more pro
lific than nny other class of farm ani
mals. They niaturo moro quickly and
can thcrcforo be turned off sooner than
any other live stock save poultry.
Again, the pig produces its meat upon
considerably less feed than any other
Vent producing animal, much of which
feed could not be used advantagcousl.v
lu any other way. A pound of pork
enn bo produced upon half the amount
of feed that Is required to produce a
pound of beef and two-thirds as much
as It requires to make a pound of unit
ton. Another point In favor of the
pig Is that the percentage of dressed
weight Is higher In pork than In cither
beef or mutton.
There Is probably no branch of ani
mal husbandry that can be taken up
with as small capital as raising pigs.
They can be kept in comparatively
large numbers In small lnclosures or
they will do well on pasture, which
furnishes part of tbelr feed; and they
ire subject to but few diseases. As
population Increases the demand for
pork will also Increase. It Is one of
our most pnlatable and nourishing
Practical experience shows that one
good man can handle quite a large
herd of hogs If he will properly ar-
ange his pasturing and feeding sys

NEW SHORT STORIES
Calve and the "Sups."
When the grand opera company goes
to Boston it is all the rage among
Harvard men to go on the stage as
"supes." So keen Is their desire to get
behind the footlights that on nights
when tbc big stars sing as high as $2
is paid by each "supe" for tho priv
ilege of carrying a spear, clinking a
tin cup or figuring as one of the com
ponent parts of a stage mob.
"Supes" have to be watched core
folly by those In authority behind the
scenes because they treat the whole
thing as n huge lark and are always on
tho lookout for chances to do mischief;
henco small consideration Is shown for
their feelings. Back and forth they
are hustled like sheep. They have lit
tle chance to see the show.
But they always use great ingenuity
in dodging the' dragonlike Individuals
who watch over them.
Once a "supe" succeeded In eluding
the stage managers eye when the

time came to leave the stage. Ensconc
ing bluiself In a dark corner behind
the scenery, he listened rnptly to the
nightingale notes of Calve.
When she finished there was a
storm of applause from tho audience.
Again and again Calve came forth,
bowing her acknowledgments. Fasci
nated, the "supe" edged away from
his biding place, over nearer to the
stage, when suddenly a hand plucked
his sleeve. He turned.
Beside him stood an infuriated stage
Tho two eyed each other. Then the
stage manager, with Icy courtesy, re-
"Won't you please walk right out,
' on the stage, behind the footlights,
and take a curtain call yourself?
Please do! Ob, I Insist!"
For the rest of tho evening that par
ticular "supe" gave little trouble.

ed, this can be done by Holding the
egg In the band half closed and placing
It in front of the light of a candle.
For a larger number of eggs the test
ing Is done more quickly and more
easily by means of the egg tester,
The testing must be done in the
dark. If the egg is fertilized, the
germ should be seen very distinctly,
us in Fig. 2. If the egg Is not fertiliz
ed and Is freshly laid, it is almost quite
transparent and does not seem to con
tain any yolk. If not freshly lnld. the
yolk seems to float in the midst of the
white. If the egg Is fertilized and the
germ has not enough vitality to de
velop, the germ will bo seen surround
ed with a circle or half circle of blood.
Such eggs should be rejected.
While testing the egg must bo kept
in a horizontal position, not with one
of the ends downward before the egg
tester, A, in Fig. 1. This is sometimes
a cause of death and certainly in
creases the percentage of deaths In

on the top of which the germ is float

deadens the shock. But if the egg is

When an egg is to be tested, place

consequently Is more easily seen.
