She untied the faded ribbon and be
gan to read the letters- They were
all from Morton Snmmers. „
"No matter how lone It may be,"
they ran. "No matter what happena,
I will always trust you, you will al
wnya trust me." Perhaps all lovers
hare written so. The tears presently
hid tho words. "Through the blur,
ter.der epithets shone. "Darling
Sweetheart." She never tired of
gazing upon them. It was aa if his
voice htlll called her thus. She
drshed away the tears, and caught
airht of the letter upon the floor. Bhe

to weigh It against the bundle of old
love letters. How mpch older they
wore than the love of which they

aaked aloud, stepping to the Ore. "I

ton —ho loved me once! And I—and
IT Ood help met I love him still!
I know —I know," she faltered, the
terra again rushing to her eyes,
"thst I shall love him always."
She cast Edgar Duval's pssslonats
appeal Into the flames and sinking
back Into the chair, burled her face
among the letters of long ago, kiss
ing them wildly. She hsd made her
choice; the choice of a lonely life, a
life of privations and toll, but a life
which could be lived true to Its
ld-ala and Ita girlhood's faith.
"Tea, ahe Is at home," aald the
maid to the tall, pale atranger, "ahe
la In the parlor. Will you walk InT"
She had not heard the doorbell,
nor did ahe notice the opening of the
door She did not live In the room.
Just then, but in a fairy wood with
golden splnHhea from the aun, and
fragrant perfumes now vanlahed
nuy years, and a gentle voice—yes,
aho lived with It, and with eloquent
eyes, and a clinging hand. Her
mind waa so far away ahe could not
hear the fontateps drawing near, nor
see the startled gate riveted upon
the old letters heaped In her lap.
A sudden exclamation of surprise
and 1 aln brought hsr, with a violent
shock, back Into the presont.
Thinking Edgar Duval stood near
at hand, ahe glanced down with dis
may at the love letters, while her
cheek*, still damp from tears, grew
crlnifon Then seeing It was Morton
her cdnfnalon and distress sought re
lief In anger. She hurriedly dashed
the letters Into the box, crying out
"Ton have no right here!"
"These give me the right," cried
Morton, hi* eyes burning aa he tore
the letter* from her graap, and held
them up. "They apeak for me to-day

She turned upon him, her eyea

Her voice faltered. There waa
aomethlng In hla gaxe which alew
her auger nn d made her grow afraid
from the midden hope too wonderful
"Dear sweetheart—this only one I
ever loved"—he faltered, extending
hla arms, "there haa been a terrible

"How could yon have thought ma

had not come, ahe might Indeed have
been what he had be!leved!
"I read of your marriage In the

then I thought I understood why
why your lettera had grown far
apart. I couldn't believe It, darling,
oh. I couldn't think It trua! I wrote
to a friend, and he told me you had

She understood at laat and paled,
then crimsoned. Paaalonate Joy beat

her voice Bounded dreamy, far away.
"Yea, we gave an entertainment.

She could aay no more; audden
auba Interupted her pitying voice.
But he did not need her pity now.
He felt, aa her head sank upon hla
breast, and the love of youth apoka
la eloquent alienee, fresh and warm
and true from llpa to llpa, that ha
seeded nothing In all the world, but
what had been hla long ago.
"And you muat leave In the morn-

"Yea, but before we loae any time

call up the paper that printed that
story yeara ago, and let them
aow anaounce the engagement of
two bappy lovera.
He looked Into her amlllng yet
tearful eyea, and laughed aloud. The
light, laughed, too, as It gleamed
upon some old lettera which lay
scattered at their feet. An In the
hollow among the burning eoala, a
crinkling, blackened paper aeemed
to crouch and cower, aa If to hide
from alght. Above It the grate fire
aaapped merrily. Thus from above
the aahea of a loat hope how o,ten
happiness casts Its radiant light.

Salsify for Winter Crop.
Bslslfy Is like parnnlp in one re
aped. It la Improved by freezing.
The roots Intended for winter use
ahould be left out a* long ae la safe,
then stored In sand In the cellar.
There la quite a difference between
the roota that have been tempered by
the froet and tho*e that have not
been. Thoaa wanted for spring use
are usually left out sll wlrter.
Another way of treating the roots
Is to cords them up In smnll
piles on the ground and cover
slightly. Tho root* will keep moist
and freeie and thaw with the
weather. If the pile Is covered with
strsw or msttlng on the approach of
severe cold weather. It will be ac

are much Improved In quality by
holding them until spring.—Field
i No man ever dlea of a broken
heart In hla love affaire, according to
both Shakespeare and Thackeray;
the heart, however* does physically
break, either from sudden shock or
from overstrain. A captain on a
vessel who had set out to marry a
lady, on reaching his destination was
abruptly Informed that ahe had mar
ried, and the man fell to the ground
and expired. The heart was discov
ered to be literally rent Into two
. pieces. Again, an lnstance Is on rec
ord of a boy, very strong and
healthy, who. In attempting to ralHe
a aheaf of corn, foil dead In the ef
fort. In thla Instance the post mor
tem disclosed a large rent In the
blood upon ~tke left ventricle, which

Only an Electric Shock.
Everybody hus experienced *■ the
queer little shiver that comes upon
one now and then without apparent
cause. It la generally put down as
"someone walking over my grave."
Actually we are told It Is the effect
of electricity. This great power Is
constantly being gem-ratud every
where, and when the positive and
negative parta of the powur meet,
they produce a shock on any living
thing. There Is a good deal of elec
tricity In the air, and when the hu
man body 4U mad> a meeting point
the senaatlon Is liable to be felt
about the region of the spine. Some
people are liable to shocks now and
then In special 'parts of them, In the
ankle for Instance, or very common
ly around the base of the brain.
There Is no harm In It but It shows a
rather highly-strung organization.
Senses of Itcptlles.
An Austrian doctor baa lately pub
lished the results of his observations
upon the special senses of animals,
especially upon the sense of reptiles.
He concludea that these are capablo
of going directly towards water,
which api>ears to attract them, even
at long distances. Light ads upon
them Independently of heat. Their
sight Is> generally good, and Is prob
ably their in OK t acute aenae, yet their
Vinton is limited. Crocodiles cannot
distinguish a man nt distances above
ten times their length. Fish see for
only short distances. The vision of
serpents is poor, the boa constrictor,
for example, can seo no further than
one-third of its own length. Some
snakes see no further than one
eighth of their own length. Frogs
are better endowed and see twenty
times their length.
Slenderness on the Stage.
Sir Henry Irving waa the first ac
tor to make sienderneaa acceptable
or tolerable, on the English stage.
He waa very thin In his earlier mid
dle age, and theater-goers of that
day wondered whether they could
endure to see a long figure and legs,
both unpadded. Until then fatness
had been obligatory; It Is difficult to
realize now the full convention of
chest and shoulders and calvea.
Comparatively lately a man of stage
experience waa urgent with a com
pany of English amateurs that all
the thin and all the lean men should
be made plump. "Nothing," he said,
"Is so Impossible on the stage as
thinness." Irving changed all this
because his genius was wedded to
uncompromising thinness. '

and among other thlnga he aaya:
We make easllage our main food.
It la uaneoeesary to enlarge upon the
▼mine of anaUage, for every dairy
man In tha corn belt certainly knowa
the value of this great feed. We feed
from 10 to 10 pounda of ensilage per
day In proportion to the cow. It la
our intention for our cows to have
all they want, and In the beat condi
tion. In the winter the ensilage la
not removed from the alio until faed
fng time and la fad steaming hot
The ensilage ration la balanead
with bran and clover hay. The bran
la fad In proportion to tha period of
lactation of tha eow, and aa much aa
■ha will eonauma at a profit. We
faad onr anallage and bran the flrat
thing In tha morning; than do onr
milking and separating; then faed aa
muah clovar hay aa the cowa will
clean up before noon. Tha aama
method la followed In the evening,
feeding hay tha laat thing at night.
We do not depend on graaa alona
more than «0 to 75 day a In the year,
from about May lo to July 16 or 10.
Then If we have any ensllago l**t
over from winter we feed about SO
to >5 pounda per day. If we have no
enallage wa plant a small plot of
sweet corn early in the aprlng and
begin feeding aa aoon aa It will do,
cutting from tha field and hauling
to tha paature each day. Thla la a
more axpenalva way of feeding than
the enallage, but It la far better than
to let tha oowa go hungry; for a
hungry cow won't give milk. Our
cowa muat have all they want to eat
