Eatcliff had put a eherp cigar between his tfeetli, but he was not go ing to light it till they were entering the town. "Thar's one disagreeable feature," he remarked. "At first, my idea was to hurry up an' git it over, so you wouldn't have to go to jail at all but it has just struck me that this is Saturday, an' it is sometimes awkward work to have a trial the last day o' the week. You see the prosecution will want to summon Th-ad Williams, an' that will take time. Then, as to-morrow is Sun clay, you may have obleeged to wait over till Monday." lionald told him that it would make little difference to him whether lie spent the time in jail or out.

With Just one long, long sunny day To play alone, alone, IC I were a little girl again, And fairy folk were true, If paper dolls had human hearts, And all the world were new, Ah, listen, listen, little one, I'll whisper what I'd do: To the violet's lips I'd put my ear And hush my heart that I misht hear The secret of its sweetness I'd search beneath the fungus shelves For glimpse of goblins, gnomes, or elves I'd run a race with the laughing brook, Or chase it to some witch-kept nook, Whose spell would stay its lieetness I'd hide in the haunt of the mocking bird Till I learned its melody word for word Pull length upon the moss I'd lie.

WW"" WtW- The World Against Aim By WILL N. HARBEN. Copyright, 1900, b/ A.N. Kellogs Newspaper Company. CHAPTER XIII.—CONTINUED. Capt. Winkle started. It had flashed upon him that he was being misunder stood, and j-et there was a dog-g-ed something in his eyes which, seemed to say that a little thing like a temporary misunderstanding—even in so delicate a matter—would amount to nothing as an offset against the humiliation Evelyn's conduct had brought him. HastJ- reflection on this line made him unusually blunt of speech. "Yes, I want to talk to you about her, but not in the way you perhaps an ticipate, Col. Hasbrooke," said the cap tain, almost patronizingly. "I felt it my duty as a personal friend of yours to come directly to you." "It must be a proposal, after all." thought the old gentleman, whose face was divesting itself of its look of per plexity, "the fellow is badly rattled." lie waved his hand towards the cap tain's chair and sat down himself. Winkle took his seat and crosse...

The full effect of the German anti neat law will not be felt very seri ously for about three years unless the CEerman government decides to arbi trarily abrogate its treaties with a number of the European countries.

The Vorld Against Bin By WILL N. HARBEN. Coprrlght, 1900, by A. M. Kellogg Newspaper Company. CHAPTER XV.—CONTINUED. The prisoner shuddered visibly. "Did Col. Hasbrooke have anything to say about the case?" he asked. "Not to me, he didn't, but when Capt. Winkle was talkin' so^hore about yore conviction, he spoke up an' 'lowed that it was a shame to talk of a man's guilt before his trial. He said it sharp-like, as if he didn't have much use for Wnikle, an I noticed that the captain shut up like a clam. I was surprised, fcr I kinder thought the captain was goin' to get one o' the old man's daugh ters." Ronald had another question ready. "What are my chances on getting bailed out?"

And plodding horses, faithful, strong and staid, Unknown to style, left just as wisdom made. Above are stretched the heavens, vast, aloof strip of blue enframed by towering roof tantalize.

It was about six o'clock that after noon when the sheriff put Ronald down at home. Dave had ridden close be hind the buggy all the way. Now and then, when passing some acquaintance on the road or in a distant field, he would wave his slouched hat and give a yell that would have done credit to the lungs of a savage. When they ar rived at home he fastened the bridle reins to a post and sprang over the fence into the yard. Old Fanshaw sat nodding, half asleep, on the porch in a spot where the last rays of the slant ing sunlight were falling he was well wrapped up in a ragged greatcoat and wore a cap, the flaps of which cov ered his ears. "Eon's come cleer!" Dave shouted to him, and seeing his sister at the small paned window, he yelled the same words to her. "I know better," grunted Fanshaw, who, being short-sighted, had not noted the arrival of the buggy. "Come cl...
