At the beginning of great automobile

four hour race Btanton meets a stranger.
Miss Carlisle, who Introduces herself. The
Mercury wins raoe. Stanton receives
flowers from Miss Carlisle, which he ig
nores. Stanton meets Miss Carlisle on a
train. They alight to take walk, and
train leaves. Stanton and Miss Carlisle
follow in auto. Accident by which Stan
ten is hurt Is mysterious. Floyd, at lunch
with Stanton, tells of his boyhood. Stan
ton ajraln meets Miss Carlisle and they
dine together. Stanton comes to track
sick, but makes race. They have acci
dent. Floyd hurt, but not seriously. At
dinner Floyd tells Stanton of his twin
sister. Jessica. Stanton becomes very ill
and loses consciousness. On recovery, at
his hotel Stanton receives Invitation and

Her gray eyes widened, the color
flushed through her transparent skin.
Suddenly and vividly Stanton was re
minded of Floyd's face on the first
night when he Invited the mechani
cian to race with him for the s^son.
"You are asking me?" she doubted.
"I would like to do so. But not if
you think Floyd would refuse to let
me, If he were here. He can't have
much of an opinion of me."
"I wish I might tell you what Jes
thinks of you," she made grave an
swer. "I am quite sure that he would
let me go with you, Mr. Stanton; you
are very good and I thank you from
tbe bottom of my heart"
The little old Irishwoman in black
silk opened the door for him, beam
ing and smiling. Amazed at himself,
bewildered by a sense of having seen
Floyd and yet not seen him, Stanton
went down Into the practical city
H« spent two hour* In selecting an
Irreproachable play and theater; a
taak of some delicacy In tbla bla na
tive town. After which, he ate a per
functory dinner and went home to
Areas. Btanton, whose overbearing
willfulness spared no one. whose
rough tongue hurt his mechanician as
often as they met, would no more
have taken Floyd's sister to dine with
him In a public restaurant without
Floyd's permission, than he would
have stolen his purse.
It was a dazzling Jessica whom be
found waiting for him, at the appoint
ed hour. Yet she was simply gowned
In delicate gray, with a demure lace
Dollar that came up to her round chin,
and long lace sleeves. It was her
rlvld, expressive faoe; the bronze
curls massed under the wide gray
hat, the splendid glow and young vi
tality of her, that made people look
and look again. Stanton approved of
her unreservedly; he had fixed mas
culine notions of what women should
wear in public places.
On her left arm, over the transpar
ent sleeve, she wore an antique silver
bracelet fully four inches in breadth;
a singular ornament, set with dull tur
guolse matrix. When Stanton aaslst
sd her to remove her cloak, at the
theater, she suddenly winced.
"The bracelet—lt canght my arm,"
she explained, before he could ques

But nevertheless, she did not take
It off, and several times through the
•wing touched ber gloved finger to
the silver band as if to assure her
self that It was In place. A souvenir,
perhaps, Stanton idly reflected. He
was too much interested In the wear
er to pay heed to the bracelet Except
for the hours passed with Floyd, be
had never experienced anything like
thi« satisfying companionship.
The performance had ended, and
Stanton was carefully piloting his
charge through the slow-moving mass
of people, when be beard his own
name exclaimed. He glanced around,
and saw Valerie Carlisle coming
down the stairs from the boxes, ber
large, amber eyes fixed upon him.
Under the strong light, in her elab
orate pale-green gown, her shoulders
bare and showing satin-white where
her cloak had slipped back, ber blonde
hair circled with a wreath of green
enameled and Jeweled leaves, she was
-conspicuous enough to draw the
glanoee of all those passing, as well
aa that of the man she called. Stan

on his way, but sbe called a second
time, adding a gesture of summons.

"You called me, Mlaa Carllale?" he
questioned. "Mlaa Floyd, let me in
troduce Mlaa Carllale."
The t*o women bowed without ef
fusion, Valerie Carlisle scrutinizing
Jesalca with an acute attention that
aelsed every detail of ber appearance.
"Miss Floyd, have we not met?" ahe
pussled. "Pardon, It aeema so to me."
"Probably you have met my twin
brother," Jessica suggested, gravely
self-possesaed. "He la much with

so; It resulted in an accident."
He opened his lips to deny that his
Illness hsd caused the Mercury's mis
hap, then paused. If he had not felt
the average Irritability of a strong man
sick, would he have quarreled with
Floyd and Mtken hla car around the
turn at such ruinous speed T He did
"I am perfectly well, thank you."
he answered, Instead.
"Indeed, I am glad. Will you not
come to see us soon—you owe us a
dinner call, you know."
He did not echo her delicately ex
pectant smile, his dark face hard.
"You must believe my appreciation
of the dinner without that formality,
Miss Carlisle. I start for Indiana In
a few days." he regretted.
Her amber eyes also hardened, sud
denly and strangely; she moved a step
to retire, catching up her trailing
lengths of satin and laoe.
"As you will, of course. Ah; we

declared. "But I think that Miss Car

by the pleasantry.

There was a tinkling craah, before
he could reply. Stanton bent and re

"May I put it on?" he aaked.
But she held out her hand for tbe
trinket; In the dim light b« could
have imagined that sbe had become
suddenly agitated and hurried.
"No, it Is too heavy," she declined.
"Good night I have enjoyed this eve
ning very much." -
In his own hotel apartment - when
he drew off his gloves, Stanton wss
puzzled to find his right fingers slight
ly stained with crimson. Slowly mem
ory brought back the fact unnoticed
at tse time, that Jessica's bracelet
had been warm and damp to tbe touch

Floyd returned Stanton'a call after
a faahion of his own. some day* later.
"There's a gentleman down-ataira to
aee you, air," the bell-boy brought In
formation to the latter, one afternoon.
"He won't come up because he says he
can't leave hla automobile, but he'd be
glad if you'd come down, air."
Stanton looked at the card presented,
and roae with alacrity.
Hla mechanician waa in the hail,
gaalng serosa the wide windows at a
low-awung, long-bonneted, dull-gray
motorcar that atood by the curbatone;
a car atrlpped aa bare of every super

scending elevator he turned to meet
Stanton with his smile of sun-shot

"Oh, go ahead."
"Well, he said he had been a racing

"I'll get some driving things," sug
gested Stanton, and went back to the
When he joined Floyd beside the big
car, he stood for a moment busied with
the clasp of his gauntlet, before at
tempting to start.
"Miss Floyd told you of my call, the
other day?" he queried
"Yes, of course. * I was sorry to be
away; I had never thought of your
hunting me up."
"You did not object to my taking her
out? There waa no way of aaklng you."

Floyd's eyes glinted with an apprecia

"Object? Why? You could taka
care of her," he countered.
•'Fix the spark," bade Stanton, and
went front to crank his motor.
"We'll not get half a block without
drawing every mounted policeman for

roar of the exhausts. "We ought to

the car rolled forward.
The Mercury glided through the
teeming, congested streets, and left a
faultless record behind her. Not a
traffic officer's slightest signal was die
regarded, no speed regulations were
materially fractured; Stanton drove
like a law-abiding chauffeur from the
suburbs, and until they were In the

ALSTON D. WATTS
CONFIRMED BY THE BENATE
WITHIN FIVE MINUTES AFTER
A HARD FIGHT IS ENDED
Th« Appointment of the Statoavlllo
Man Haa Been Warmly Opposed
Since Hla Recommendation For the

ate finance committee, of which Sena
tor Simmons is chairman. He was
nominated and confirmed recently.
The nomination of Watts was sent
to the senate and, contrary to the
usual custom of the senate, was con
firmed a few minutes later. When the
news was telephoned him at the fi
nance committee room, Mr. Watts
was incredulous, as the nomtnatior
had not come In with the flrßt batch
of names received from the Whlt«
House, but came later.
A large party of North Carolinians
were in the office and showered con
gratulatlons on Colonel Watts over
the successful issue of the long fight.
They Included H. B. Varner, of Lex

When asked what he had to say,
Mr. Watts replied: "I have no hard
feelings against anybody and am very
grateful to my friends."
Since the recommendation of Watts
was made by Senator Overman and
concurred in by Senator Simmons a
Rigorous and relentless effort has been
made to block his nomination. It was
reported that E. J. Justice, who Is

ARE "DOPING OUT" THE JOBS
At State Capital.—F. O. Winston Said
To Bo in Line For Diatrlct Attor
Raleigh.—Politicians, who assert
that they hare thoroughly sounded
the situation at Washington and
agreements among contending inter
ests at this end of the line, say Hon.
Francis D. Winston, of Windaor la to
have the United Statea diatrlct attor
neyship for the Eastern district, J. W.
Bailey of Raleigh is to have the as
sistant district attorneyship and the
position of collector of internal reve
nue is to go to W. T. Dortch, of
Ooldaboro. Mr. Mailey and Mr. Wine
ton have both been strong candidates
for the attorneyship, but as the story
goes here, Mr. Winston seems to have
first claim on the job and rather than
aocept the postmastershlp at Raleigh,
Mr. Bailey has agrees to take the as
sistant attorneyship, which carries a
$2,000 salary and takes practically no
time from a general law practice
such as Mr. Bailey haa.
The candidates for the collectorship
are W. T. Dortch and Joe Tayloe of
Washington, and, according to the re
port here, Mr. Tayloe has decided to
•wait for the position of United States
marshal, available within a year, and
let Mr. Dortch come in for the ap
polntment as collector to succeed
Wheeler Martin. This Is an appoint
ment that can be made any time now
at the will of the president.
Progress of School* in Mecklenburg.
The progress of the public school
system of the county is shown In a
striking way by the amount of money
that is being put Into new school
bulldingß. as well as in the quality
of the buildings that are being erect
ed. At three places In the county,
Matthews, Plnevllle and Chadwlck-
Hoskins, new high school buildings
are being erected or enlarged, those
at Plnevllle and Chadwick-Hosklns
being new buildings out and out,
while that at Matthews is an enlarge
ment. A striking commentary on the
growth of the Matthews school Is the
fact that it was erected only a few
years ago* and considered abundantly
ample to take care of the education
al needs of the village for many
years to come. Dut rapidly has the
school grown, chlofly under the di
rection of Prof. J. M. Matthews, and
an able corps of assistants, that the
additions had to be made.

The county commissioners of Union
county came back frum their confer

site for the bridge which the two coun

built somewhere about the center
of the two counties but the commis
sioners can't agree among themselves
where the best place would be tc

discussed the several different places
where they might build, among the
most favorable places are: Love'*

THE SITUATION IN RESPECT TO
fHEBE OFFICERS IN STATE
MANY CHANGES WERE MADE
Republican Postmaster* Have Been
Superceded By Democrats at a
Fairly Creditable Rata.—Out of 74
Vancanclee, 80 Men Nominated.
Raleigh.—A special from Washing
ton states that since March 4th the
Republican postmasters in North Car
olina have been superceded by Demo
crats at a fairly creditable rate.
There were 74 offices In the state on
March 4 in which the terjn of the In
cumbent postmaster had already ex
pired. Men to fill most of these of
fices had been named by the Taft ad
ministration but by diligent and con
sistent effort the Democrats in the
senate has prevented the confirma
tion of any of them.
Of these 74 vacancies, figures gath
ered show that 60 men have been
nominated rat postmasters in North
Carolina andXftSt all have been con-
Armed exceptions. The
exceptions G. Russell, at Rose
Hill; W. F. Keri, at Fremont, and
O. K. at Wake Forest.
Investigations are being made in
all three of these cases to ascertain
the truth of the charges made against
the applicants and confirmations will
be forthcoming shortly. In the case
of Holding, especially, there wi)l be
no delay. His reply to the charges
against him, which were forwarded to
Wake Forest, were received and Sena
tar Smith, of South Carolina, has
been named as a sub-committee* to
consider the charges and Holding's
reply. He will make a favorable re
port on the nomination in a few days
and Holding will be confirmed at the
next meeting of the senate. Russel at
Rose Hill and Flowers at Fremont
will also be confirmed in due time.
O. A. Snipes at Rocky Mount and
IT S. Harrison at Enfield, the twc
postmasters recommended for ap
polntment by Congressman Claude
Kltchln will in all probability be nom
inated in a few days, the charges
filed against them having been inves
tigated anad found to be groundless;
New Law For North 'Carolina.
Raleigh.—A new law of interest and
importance to the business men of
North Carolina, went into effect July
1. It applies to the entire state, and
is: Chapter 7 of the Public Laws,
1913. Among other provisions, it pro
vides: "That no person or persons

ducting or transacting such business,
unless a certificate is filed In the
superior court clerk's office, giving
the name or names of all the owners
of such business, and there Is a pen
alty of ?50 for failure to comply.
Progress In Educational Work.
Salisbury.—Much progress is being
1 made in educational work In Rowan
county under the direction of County
I Superintendent Klzer. In accordance
with a new state law, all applications
from teachers for positions in public
schools must be filed with and ap
proved by the county superintendent

Raleigh.—The Wake County school
teachers for the coming school term
have been selected in all the rural
townships, save Cedar Fork and

Fork will be chosen at Morrisville.
There are eighteen rural townships in
Wake county, and in each township'
there will be a slight Increase in the
teaching force for the coming term.
Railroad Committee Adjourns. * -
Morehead City.—The Atlantic and
North Carolina Railroad committee
has adjourned to meet again at the
call of the chairman, after the com
mittee has been able to collect cer
tain matter relative to the physical
condition of the road now, as well as

the civil engineering department for
maps and surveys of the harbor of
