rage when a man makes a mistake,

Battling Nelson has outlined a plan
to meet YVoIgast's demand of $20,000
as his end for a tight with the Dane.
"The promoters refused to accede to
this," said Nelson, "so I have agreed
to handle the light myself. There is an
ideal arena near Frisco, with good
transportation facilities and capable of
holding 20,000 persons. I will take 7o
per cent of the gate receipts for my
end and out of that pay Ad Wolgast
his $20,000. the balance to go to my
self. We will easily draw $50,000.
which will leave me $17,000 after I
have paid on" Wolgast. I will deposit
the entire amount of Wolgast's purse
with the stakeholder before the battle
and take every risk myself. This seemo
to be tho only way In which I can get

"There was a good congregation.
Tho Blythes had somo friends with
them, so Mattlo sat in my pew. She's
had the velvet taken off that greon
dress and satin put on Instead."
"Well, It was time. Tho volvot
looked awfully worn tho laBt tlmo sho
was here. I suppose that Farley girl
was rlged out as usual?"
"She's cut her hair off short and
curled It all over."
"Horrors! 1 wish she'd changed
her pew not that it will matter much
to me, if I'vo got to spend tho rest of
my life here In this bed. Oh, dear!
Sometimes I think I am going crazy."
"If you would only try letting mo
read to you "
"It's no use. It nearly drives mo
wild. The only thing that gives mo
relief Is crlbbngo. and I suppose you'd
rather I died than play cards on Sun
day. Oh, dear."
Barbara looked at the Invalid with
a troubled expression. Sunday wns
her god, and sho was Its prophet. To
her it was her solemnest duty. Sho
believed that Fanny's sufferings were
tho result of her disregard for tho
seventh day. Fanny looked on it sim
ply as an extra day, to be devoted to
washing her hair and reading novels.
All tho week Barbara gave herself,
mind and body, to her sister; every
night she played numberless hands of
crihbage, which seemed to quiet tho
Invalid. For six days Fanny held su
premo sway, but bofore the night of
tho soventh sho was powerless. Bar
bara tried to mako amends for this.
Her soul would havo revolted from
secular thoughts in church, but slnco
It Interested Fanny to know who
were there and what they wore sho
hurried out early Sunday morning
and stood on the steps, anxiously scan
ning the congregation. She always
felt nervous and deprecating as sho
did this, and wondered what people
thought Sho kept nn explanation
ready, but nobody ever asked.
"I always enjoyed life so much
more than you did," Fanny went on.
fretfully. "It seems queer that I
should have had this, while you are as
well and strong as ever. You never
cared for fun. Why, don't you remem
ber that winter when Aunt Miriam
wrote for one of us to spend a couple
of months in town with her and you
didn't care about it? What a glorious
time I had!"
Yes, Barbara remembered as vivid
ly as though the 15 years had been as
many days. She saw Fanny's eager
face when tho note was read, and
heard the half-imploring tone of her
voice as she said: "O, Barbara! I
suppose, of course, you'll go. I wish
I were the oldest!" then her own
voice answering. "No, I don't believe
I care about It. You can go." Bar
bara had borne It all with patience
and bad cried when sho went to bed
that night She had not been so well
trained in self-sacrifice then as she
was now. From that time she had
dimly accepted the fact that Fanny
was destined for the good things and
had given them to her, faithfully and
cheerfully, loving the younger slBter
better for every pang she cost her.
Sunday was the sole thing she had
set apart fbr herself.
The afternoon dragged Blowly by.
Barbara sat with her Bible in her
lap, but she did not road. There was
a troubled look in her eyes. Fanny
tossed and sighed, and broke out petu
lantly now and then, wondering why
she had to go on living when sho
would so much rather be dead; it
would be a relief to have her out of
the way. She had only slept two
hours last night, and probably would
not sleep at all to-night If sho only
had someone to play crihbage with!
That was the one thing that could
make her sleep, but, of course, it was
no matter what she endurod, so long
as Sunday was not infringed on. Oh,
dear! Barbara answered with exas
perating patience, but tho troubled
look deepened. (
At C the maid camo In with tho In
valid's tea on a tray.
"You haven't brought mo any nap
kin, Kato," said Fanny, in an injured
tone. Sho always looked on Kate's
little sins of omission as intentional.
When Barbara returned from hor
own supper, she found Fanny in tears.
"I can't help It," Fanny sobbed. "I
know you think I am just putting it
on, but I'm not I'm so nervous I can't
Barbara took the tray in silence,
and set it down in tho hall; then sho
went Into her own room and closed
the door. .
Whon she camo baclt, tho room was
growiug dark. Fanny was lying In a
dejected attitude, her eyos filling with
tears at every sound. Barbara stood
In the shadow, her face strangely set
It was tho hardost moment of her life.
Then she said:
"I'll play cards with you, Fanny."
Fanny's faco brightened, and then
Bho hesitated. Somothlng In Barbara's
faco pierced evon her selfishness.
"Won't you hato It awfully, Bar
bara?" alio asked,
Barbara's eyos grow tender. This
from Fanny! Tho sacrifice was not so
hard, after all.
"Not if It helps you, dear," Bho said.
Fanny sighed contentedly as she
Shuffled tho cards.
"After all, it's only tho Idea," aha
said. "There's no harm In It, if you
can only got over thinking there Is."
Barbara's Hps tightened a little, hul
sho did not answer.

piled and shuttled tho cards. Whec
It was over, the invalid slept peaceful

As To Swarming.
Wo have had It proven to our
own satisfaction many times that
bees often select a location before
swarming. Away back in tho 80s
we were in the woods and saw beee
going in and out of n knot-hole
some 15 feet up in a tree. My first
thought was that 1 had found a be"
treo. After observing more close
ly I discovered that It was only bees
out selecting a place for their fu
ture home, for there wore more or
less bees around all tho rees, near
chat showed any signs ot being ho,
icw. From their actions it was easy
to see that they were searching tor
a cavity for their future home 1
watched them with much interest tor
several hours toward tho middle ot
the day; but they seemed to pay lit
tle attention to any of the trees ex
cept tho first ono mentioneu. Around
this thoy greatly Increased in num
bers until it almost seamed as it a
3mall swarm were in and around this
treo. During tho tlmo I went to tho
house and told my wlfo tu keep a
c'oso watch on a certain colony 1
knew was preparing to swarm. I
was sure thoy wero my bees that
wero E" busily engaged at . - tree.
Pretty soon I heard my wife calling.
"The bees are swarming!" I noticed,
however, the bees about tho tree had
become very much less in numbers.
A very few wero to bo seen at the
tree just then.
1 hastened to tho houso to watch
tho swarm to soe what the result
would bo. They wero pretty well
out ot the hive when 1 reached the
houso and had started to cluster. Not
over two-thirds oi tho swarm ever
clustered at all when they broke clus
ter ana inado a direct lino for tho
treo where 1 had been watching them
for hours, and went directly Into it.
At another tlmo a nolghbor called
on me, saying he had found a bee
tree, and wanted to savo tho beeB.
They wero working strong, as De
thought. After a good many hard
blows with his axo, he felled On
tree, and, to his utter astonlshmmeut,
no bees wore In It, and no signs )t
comb or anything that showed tbut
oecs bad over occupied tho treo. Bo
foro long bo saw a big negro coming
on a dead run through the brush
rattling a boll for all It was worth;
and about the samo tlmo ho heard
tho roaring of a swarm ot beos, and
very soon thoy wore hovering about
the spot where tho treo had stood.
After circling around for a short
tlmo tho bees clustered on a bush
near whero the treo stood, porbapn
much astonished becauso their new
ly found home was destroyod.
Theso with mauy other Instances l
could rclato, convlnco mo that bees

"I had the cormorant under observa
tion only for the spaco of four or flvo
minutes, and during that short period
It had captured four sen trout, all of
consldcrab'o size. After being under
water for n few seconds the bird
would reappear with a sea trout wrlg
gling in Its bill. But In spite of the
victim's desperate efforts to escape it
was deftly swallowed, and after a few
gulps the cormorant would resume its
fishing operations One of the sea
trout gavo It considerable trouble, how
ever, for the fish struggled violently
for some moments, but was deftly
placed so that Its heart pointed down
its captor's throat, nnd thus Its own
struggles nsslsted the bird to swallow
It. After a time the cormorant raised
itself In the water. Happing Its wings
vigorously, ns though to help It pack
away Its heavy repast, and then rose
heavily and winged its way upstream."
