The issues between the government

Sam Storrow jumped upon a north
bound electric car as he spoke, leaving
the man to whom he had announced
his plans in a speculative mood,
"I'll bet," murmured Ralph Ralston,
as he hailed the next south bound car,
lhat Storrow'8 had a row with Madge
Since the date, just four years ago,
when they had left Harvard, neither
Sam Storrow nor Ralph Ralston had
settled down to any serious occupa
tion. They had devoted themselves
to the somewhat indefinite pastime of
It had been the kind of looking
around usual with Idle men of private

as idle as themselves.
But It must be admitted of the two
Storrow's life had been much the more

Madge Marbury might have resulted
in matrimony ere this were it not for
the frequency of their petty quarrels,
none of which might ever have occur
red if tliey had not had so much Idle
time to quarrel in.
The excitement of these little tiffs
had begun to pall upon him, and when
the last one occurred he decided that
he would stay in town when Madge
went away. In fact, he was hard up
ror a new sensation.
The electric car whirled him rapidly
up Madison avenue. He looked at the
monotonous array of drawn shades in
the house fronts-rlnevitable symptom
of the summer season and the thought
came to him of the darkened, silent re
ception rooms so gay with beauty and
fashion in winter time. But the butter
flies bad fled to shore and mountain,
leaving Madison avenue to console it
self until their return. Miss Madge
Marbury had gone to Bar Harbor.
"Goodby, Mr. Storrow," she had said
to him Just before they parted. "I
hope you'll .find some romance In the
city to compensate you for your self
imposed and solitary martyrdom."
These words came back to him now,
and the recollection made him feel
more than ever resolved to find his ro
mance during nis summer in town. He
would not have Madge Marbury chaff
him on her return. ,
Ralph Ralston thoroughly disagreed
with Sam Storrow as to the relative
charms of city and seaside In summer.
This was natural, for the two men had
never agreed upon any question since
the day they first met, and neither bore
much love toward the other.
So a few days after the meeting with
Storrow Ralston was In the vortex of
Bar Harbor's gay life, troubling him
self very little about romance and con
tent with agreeable realities.
There was no more agreeable reality
than his present proximity to Miss
Madge Marbury on the veranda of a
cottage that nestled picturesquely up
among the pines. ,
They were enjoying the beauty of
the cool Maine night. The intense blue
of the heavens gave that suggestion of
illimitable vastness which, though the
suggestion maybe always there, Is

"Can you imagine, Miss Marbury, a

? Somehow it seemed to have grown
darker. The song of the pines swelled
Into a stronger chorus, and there was
a deeper, more sullen, note in the dis
tant booming of the surf.
Tney were standing together now on
the edge of the veranda, and he had
taken her hand without any protest on
her part. He had drawn her gently
and gradually around, so that she was
half facing him now, and his other
arm, which embraced the post of the
piazza at her left, was ready to encir
cle her neck the moment his instinct
should tell him it was safe to make the
"Miss Madge," he whispered Into her
very ear, "say that you believe me
worthy of all your confidence."
It was the last ditch, and there was
plainly a struggle going on within her,
for in spite of the cool Maine night her
blood coursed so fast that it was a race
between her heart and pulse, beats.
His purely animal instinct warned
him that she was winning a victory
this time over bersclf and over him,
and as he tightened his hold upon her
hand and let his hand drop from the
piazza post across her shoulder she
gave a sort of gasp, wrenched herself
free from him and darted Into the

relative wealth, rubbed shoulders here
upon a ground of common equality.
But in a remote corner of the square
the elective- light played with a rather
weird effect upon the strangely deter
mined face of a woman a refined look
ing, high bred woman, clearly not in
touch with; her surroundings. Beside
her sat Sam Storrow, hia eves upon the
ground. But his companion was keen
ly alert, and presently, when she saw
another woman approaching, she wait
ed until she noticed Storrow give a
surprised start of reeo-Toition, and then
she arose and snoku to the newcomer.
"Miss Marbury." she said, "when I
sent you that anonymous letter to Bar

I brought you here to open your eves.
A week ago Mr. Knlpli Ralston, walk

out Mr. Storrow, whom I did not know.

JUGGLERS AND ACROBATS.
Americans Are Noiv More Clever
Than Chinese and Japa.
"The older generation of theater go
ers will no doubt recall the troupe of
Japanese acrobats and jugglers that cre
ated such a sensation in this country
some years ago," said a retired theatrical
manager recently. "It was the one to
-which 'Little All Right' belonged. The
Japs and Chinese nsed to -be considered
the best jugglers and equilibrists in the
world, but they are far behind the Amer
icans of today. Their big reputation has
been overshadowed long ago.
"The company I have just mentioned
caught the people by the novelty of their
tricks. By the way. tbe nickname of
'All Right' was given the little fellow
because of the signal he would always
give his father when they were about
to perform some daring acrobatic feat.
A ri' the tooy would pipe when he was
ready to be to-sed by bis father head
over heels in the air. The name tickled
the fancy of the populace and became a
valuable trademark in the troupe. When
the Little All Right company went out
of existence, it was sold for a good round
sum. It was stolen afterward by some
fake company, and a long lawsuit re
sulted. "You may remember that Little All
Right used to slide down nu inclined wire
from the first balcony to -tbe footlights,
keeping his balance by means of u paper
umbrella. It was then regarded as uinr
velous. There are performers today who
do the snme thing in evening dress while
smoking a cigarette and with uothiug to
balance them except their bare hands.
Alter tne wuite acrobats had time to
practice they beat the Japs at their own
game. Same thing with juggling. Our
fellows soon caught on and beat the ori
entals at every turn.
"I remember one of the most fetching
things the Chinese did was to keep a lot
of paper butterflies in the air by the aid
of a fan. The uninitiated never discover
ed that these butterflies were kept in the
ir exactly the same distance above the
head of the performer by means of an in
visible silk thread attached to them. No
Chinaman attempted to do the trick with
out the thread, but in a little while a
number of American jugglers did the
same butterfly trick without the help of
the invisible threads.
"The feat was beautiful and attractive,
but after awhile it became so cheapened
by constant use that it was dropped from
the bills of all first class places of amuse
ment and relegated to the cheap side
show tents, along with most of the Chi
nese ana Japanese acrobats and
glers." Cincinnati Enquirer.

THE HOTEL FIRE
IN RICHMOND, VA.
Further Particulars of the Burn

WAS REGARDED FIREPROOF.
Reports of Loss of Life Are Not True.
Only One Quest Was Injured Fire

By Telegraph to the wi.ruiuk huu
Richmond, Va., March 30. The
magnificent Jefferson Hotel, the pride
of Richmond, was practically wiped
out by fire early this, morning. All
thatjremaiosof tbe splendid structure,
which was built and furnisb-d by the
late Lewis Ginter at a cost if over
1,000,000, are the two clock towers a d
part of the court fronting on Frank
lin street The fire was discovered
near midnight high up in tbe Main
street section of the buildrn?. and at
first was not considered serious. The
hotel apparatus whs brought into plav
but tbe hose burst. The limes sprtVd
rapidly .and messengers were- sent
through the buUdicg to awaken the
guests, many of wnom had to be
dragged out of bed.
There was a general rush towards
the Franklin street part. The fire
made an immense light and in a short
time the vicinity was thronged with
all classes, many persons giving ex
pression to their emotions in tears.
Tbe fire department worked burriedlv
but under great difficulty, owing to
ihe height of the building. At one
time it was thought that tbe middle
section and the Franklin street section
could be saved, but the former was
soon swept out and the latttr practi
cally ruin ned. In the latter wete a
number of very valuable pictures and
valentine's marble statue of Jefferson.
The Btatue was saved with the head
broken off, and the pictures were got
ten out, aa was much of the furniture.
All tbe Guests Escaped.
Mr. Richards, a travelling man of
Danville, Va., was the only guest
hurt. He broke bis le? falling down
a flight of steps. A Richmond boy
named Robertson is missing. It is
feared he was caught in tbe burning
building. Several firemen were more
or less injured but none seriously.
The insurance on the building is
about $650,000. The Jefferson was
opened about six years ago and was
one of the finett hotels in tbe South
It occupied a full half block and was
regarded aa practically fireproof The
fire originated in the linen room, and
it is supposed from a defective electric
wire. All thi guests in the Main street
part lost their baggage. The empty
ing of the hotel of gue&ts was singu
larly free from any dramatic scenes,
owing to the wide corridors and tbe
number of staircases.
Another Building Burned.
But one building beside the hotel
was destroyed. This was tbe Pace
nats n the east Main street side of
Reports wete current of loss of lif
among the firemen, bat investigation
shows they were not true. Eight or
ten firemen, under Captains Wise and
Hundley, were cut off high up in the
Mam street part of tbe hotel sad made
their escape by sliding down tbe hose
and the fire escapes. Captain Wise
was Eeriously burned about tbe hands
