Discovery of Baptismal Record Base of
With the discovery of the baptismal
record of Joseph Valllere, a French ad
venturer who became a Spanish don,
his heirs, -who are scattered through
out tho United States, believe they
have found the link needed to prove
their claims to a tract of land eighty
miles In width and 120 miles long, on

heirs have been trying to establish
their claim to the grant made to their

CHASES BUTTERFLY A YEAR.
Entomologist Encircles Globe to Cap
The story of a 25,000 mile chase for
a butterfly was told recently by Mrs.
William Carleton Yange, wife of an
jEngllsh entomologist connected with
the French Institute of Entomology,
who is on her way to New York to
Join her husband.
Mrs. Yango said her husband went
from Vancouver via Canada after a
trip of 25,000 miles, begun solely for
the purpose of catching one butterfly,
an insignificant, long, red spotted bug
belonging to the bombyx family,
which is said to be nearly as numer
ous as the population of China.
"We have been butterfly chasing
from Paris to Kioto," said Mrs. Yange,
"and we got our little bombyx in tho
garden of a Japancso gentleman's resi
dence at Kioto after pursuing him
"I believe in heredity."

Canvass of Girls Shows How Cost of
Marriage Has Risen.
Any bachelor who Is contemplating
marrying on a salary or income that
does not reach the $10,000 figure may
rb well abandon the Idea, for the mod
ern city girl has decided that she can
not possibly live comfortably on less
than this amount.
In an address before tho New York
City Mothers" club at tho Astor hotel
Miss Angonette Perry said that she
had been collecting statements from
representative young girls, many of
whom were Just out of college, on the
cost of living.
"I asked groups of girls what they
considered tho necessary income to
' start life on nnd was horrified to find
that tho average was $10,000," she
"Many of these girls told mo that
after carefully estimating the cost of
! maintaining a home they had arrived
at the conclusion that less than ?10,
, 000 would mean living without some
of the comforts so essential to their
happiness. These girls were not the
I daughters of millionaires, but bolong
I ed to well to do families. They had
been moderately well educated and

There Was a Problem to Be
Solved In Its Affairs
By F. A. MITCHEL
The Mnrkland Manufacturing com
pany was running down. It had for
years been tho pride of Ccntervllle, and
the citizens were fearing that they
would lose the factory, which employ
ed a thousand men and was besides a
good advertisement for their town.
The reason why the Markland com
pany was going to ruin was that tho
stock was owned by two different fam
ilies, each of which was trying to se
cure the 'control. It had been organ
ized and started by a Markland. At
his death his partner, an Osgood, had
taken the management of it and built
it up. At his death a meeting of stock
holders was called, and it was discov
ered that exactly half the stock was
hold by the Markland and half by the
Osgood interest. Naturally a deadlock
was the result. Neither party would
give way to the other, each hoping to
secure a few shares or even one that
would give a majority and consequent
Months passed without either secur
ing an advantage, and, there being no
head to the concern, it was losing
ground rapidly. When it seemed that
the feud must be settled or the com
pany go out of existence Edward Flem
ing, the attorney for the Marklands,
resolved to unite the two factions by
stratagem. There were two persons lu
each, Vinton Markland and Alice Os
good, whoso united stock would make
a majority of the whole. Roth were
young, well educated nnd attractive.
Markland was rich outside his Interest
in the company that bore his name.
Miss Osgood was dependent entirely
on the dividends declared on the Mark
land company's shares she owned.
Mr. Fleming resolved to make a
match between the two. They had
never met. Markland, who was an or
phan, had gane to a boarding school at
eleven years of age, from there to col
lege and from there abroad without
having once rcturnea to his home. Miss
Osgood's life had been spent principal
ly at Centerville. Fleming called upon
her and nfter making it plain that if
the affairs of the Markland company
should remain in their present condi
tion much longer she would be without
an income secured her assent to a meet
ing with young Markland with a view
to marriage. He then wrote Mnrkland,
who was in Europe, informing him of
the condition of his interests In the
Mnrkland company and advising his
return at once to look after them.
Upon the young man's arrival the law
yer unfolded his matrimonial scheme.
Markland had no desire to encumber
himself with a wife and flatly refused,
saying that rather than make such a
mnrrlago he would prefer to lose all his
stock In the Markland company. Nev
ertheless he had no objection to meet
ing the lady provided he should not be
placed in a position as refusing to make
her lila wife.
Fleming, after an interview with Miss
Osgood, nssured him that no such con
struction should be put on any act of
his and that the young lady would re
ceive him simply as a visitor. Flem
ing advised him to go at a time when
he would not bo expected, that he
might find the lady her usual self.
This put an idea into the young man's
head. The Osgood grounds adjoined
his own. He would watch for an op
portunity to join the young lady with
out making a formal call or her know
ing who he was.
One bright winter morning, when the
snow glistened In the sun, he passed
through nu opening In the hedge sepa
rating the two places and sauntered
toward the Osgood home. Coming
upon a conservatory, he saw through
the glass a young woman cutting some
flowers. Thinking her to be the lady
of his quest, he opened the door nnd
"Reg pardon," he said. "Is this tho
"No; that Is the Markland place next
on the west. This is tho Osgood place."
"Oh, thank you! I hear Vint Mark
land has returned from Europe. He is
an old friend of mine, and I am look
ing him up. You are Miss Osgood, 1
"No; I am the governess of Miss Os
good's little sister."
"Indeed. I presumed Miss Osgood was
an only child. I am hoping to meet
Miss Osgood. I own a little stock in
u manufactory in which she Is Inter
ested. I understand that something
must be done about its management
nnd that there Is to be a meeting of
shareholders for the purpose of con
certing a plan."
"Will you permit me?" said tho
young woman, advancing to place a
flower in his buttonhole.
"Thank you very much. Very kind
of you, I assure you."
"Perhaps you would llko to talk with
Miss Osgood now about those shares
you speak of. I think she is disen
gaged." "I daro say a conferenco might bo
ot some benefit."
The young lady led the way into tho
house and ushered, Mr. Markland into
a very pretty room where a hearth
fire blared brightly and, leaving him
there, went up stairs, presently re
turning with ir card from Miss Os
good, on which she had written that
she was slightly Indisposed nmj.beg-
god to be excused. Would the gentle
man kindly glvo his .views to Miss Ice
land, tho governess, who would trans
mit them to the writer?
Miss Leland being rather pretty
and evidently inclined to detain Mr.
Markland, he settled himself in an
easy chair before tho fire. They dis
coursed for awhile on the affairs of
the Markland company, which he knew
little about, then branched off on to
other taplcs. Ho found Miss Iceland
not only competent to instruct a child,
but to givo him information on a va
riety of subjects. Nevertheless she
had tho art to make it appear that he
knew a great deal more than she and
to be listening to tho words of wisdom
dropped from his rather than her own
rosy Hps. Ho spent nn hour with her
and was about to tako his departure
when she said that she would report
what he had said about the Markland
company to Miss Osgood nnd lot him
know if she had any further message
Miss Leland was gone some time
and when she returned had doffed the
simple morning costume she had worn
and appeared in a more becoming if
not more elaborate toilet. She said
that Miss Osgood had been much im
pressed with his suggestions with ref
erence to n settlement of the Mark
land company problem and hoped that
if he would call again she might be
able to add to them herself. She do
sired that he would remain to lunch
eon and would consent to be entertain
ed by Miss Leland as her representa
tive. Markland was much pleased at the
way tho affair was progressing. The
luncheon proved enjoyable, and while
at table Markland took occasion to di
rect the conversation upon Miss Os
good, ner representative was quite
willing to talk about her and gave her
the highest praise. But when Mark
land questioned her In detail she did
not respond favorably.
"Is Miss Osgood beautiful?" he asked.
"Oh, no; I should not call her that."
"I fear she is rather inclined to com
"That's the highest kind of Intelli
gence, to my thinking. She's some
thing of a business woman, isn't she?"
"What makes you think so?"
"Why, she seemed to understand my
suggestions with regard to the Mark
"Yes; I think Miss Osgood knows
enough about business to take care of
her own interests."
Miss Leland thought for a few mo
ments, then said, "She has told me but
I suppose I shouldn't speak of that."
Markland urged her to do so, and
she continued. "There Is a movement
on foot to unite the separate interests
by n marriage with your friend Mr.
The visitor pricked up his ears.
"Together they would hold a major
ity of tho stock and the control. I may
as well confess that I have mentioned
the matter to you by Miss Osgood's
order, because she wishes me to learn
from you something about Mr. Mark
land." "I shall be very happy to Inform
her," replied Markland, with a sup
pressed chuckle. "Proceed to question
"Is he handsome?"
"On the contrary, he is very plain."
"Is he considerate and deferential
"As for that, I can only say that he
would make an excellent husband."
Miss Leland ceased her questions
and after some thought said:
"I can assure you that Miss Osgood,
whatever her delinquencies, would
make a good wife. You have assured
me that Mr. Markland would make a
good husband. It secmB to mo, there
fore, that it only remains for them to
meet and see if they are agreeable to
"Would you say as much to your
"I will bo most happy to do so. I
am going to his house from here and
will tell him nt once."
"And give him nn lnvitntlon, please,
to call on Miss Osgood tomorrow morn
ing nt the same hour you called today."
"Bo assured that I will."
Markland went away chuckling.
How admirably he had played his
game! And what a simple, confiding,
lovely creature was the governess!
What a surprise thero would be tomor
row when he announced himself as
The next morning he read his news
paper, thinking the while of his new
found charmer, the governess, and in
tending to keep his appointment mere
ly for the purpose of continuing his ac
quaintance with her. At the appointed
hour ho went over to the Osgood place,
rang the doorbell and, being admitted
by a maid, sent up his card and was
ushered into the same room as before.
In a few mnents Miss Leland enter
ed, holding his card in her hand. Mark
land expected to see her start on seeing
him. On tho contrary, she advanced to
greet him with a "Good morning, Mr.
But instead of saying anything more
in words she said a great deal by a
blush, which spread over her features.
"Miss Leland," Markland stammered.
Sho interrupted him.
"Pardon me for having deceived you.
I am Miss Osgood."
"Miss Osgood! And you knew me?"
"Mr. Fanning, when he spoke to rse
about the tie Markland problem,
showed me your photograph."
Within a couple of weeks a meeting
of the stockholders of the Markland
company was held, and Vinton Mark
land voted a majority of the stock, and
not Ionrtfter a wedding occurred be
