Chapman.) Seated on the veranda of the club at Shanghai, George Denison stared out at the never-ending procession of Cainese coolies and rlskshaw men, while he idly fingered a letter in his hands. It ran as follows: “I am prepared to marry you In six months’ time, if you will give me that period, without attempting to see me.” It was signed “Edith Itaymond,” and was written from Lymnouth, Ala. Denison liad never been to Lyn- mouth, Ala., in his life, nor had he heard of Edith Raymond of the tear- blotted letter. He was weaiy to death of China, weary of life at the club and in the ha’uking, house. He had tolled there four years, and had Just begun a six- months’ leave of absence, which, be cause he had nowhere in particular to go, he planned to spend right in Shang hai. He was tired of Chinese servants and Chinese cooking, of the company of his compatriots of the club, of bach elor life and of himself. Presently he got up. “If she’ll have me, I’ll miirry her," he said. The letter had been three months on the way. He reckoned that he would have Just time to get to Lyn- mouth, marry Miss Edith and return %vhen his vacation expired. The letter must have been to many places, for the addresses were written and rewritten, and the last recipient, this tiling out. You know I’ve held the mortgage on this place for years, long before- your father died. You know you’ve been living on my charity for months past?” “That Is not true, Mr. Denison'. I have lived on the proceeds of the sale of my jewelzy.” “Which Is mine,” said the man, trl- I umphantly. “Everything you Inherited from your father is mine, mcraily, if not legally, because he was a traudu- lent bankrupt. Ay, don’t wince. Miss Edltli. It’s true enough.” “My father was cheated by you In a business deal. It broke his heart and killed him. lid was incapable of dis honesty.” “Well, put It that way if you like. The fact remains that legally he sw'indled me. I let him keep his money, on the understanding that you were to marry me. You promised to become my -wife at Christmas, if I wouldn’t see you till then. Yesterday ■was Christmas. Now—are you going to carry out your agreement?” “Give me a month longer!” cried the girt In desperation. “Surely, if I tell you I don’t love you—’’ “ITl make you love me. What’s the matter with me? Ain’t I rich? Can’t 1 give you the alitos and clothes and a place In society, anything you want? If you don’t marry me, I'll publish your father’s shame to the world.” ‘He has done nothing to be ashamed At ail dealers — price 2S c YAGSH’S 1N1MEH1 APPENDICITIS If Ton haT* boon tbreatened or have QAT.LSTONkS.

In addition to placing several of these mammoth weapons along the coast line for mobile defense against na\'al attack, army ofiicials are now considering the creation of a special regiment, equipped with six howitzers, to work as a unit of the mobile army. The problem confronting the design- er.s in that regard Is to distribute the enormous weight of the' gun and carriage in such a way that It can be moved over ani good road. That dilhcuity is a determining factor in heavy artillery designs. Around ' a few of ^the larzest cities well-ballasted roads which' would support the weight of the ajVguns can be found, but even such a highway as the post , road from Bos^Bfo New York, it is. said, has many sections so lightly built tliat the great w^^ht would crush through. of.” Meudon in Wartime.

Try Shanghai, China.” Nearly three months later Denison got off the train at Lynmouth, Ala. “Miss Raymond, sah? Everybody knows Miss Raymond,” said the dusky ticket-collector. “It's the • big house up on the hill, sah. No, sah; she Just lives alone, but I hear she expects to get married soon.” Denison smiled as he made his way up the hill. Oddly enough, the thought of not marrj'ing Edith Raymond had never occurred to him. He imagined that the letter had not been written for him, but he meant to follow the lure. The house showed signs of dilapida tion. It had evidently once formed part of an estate, but the grounds were now overgrown with weeds and saplings, and were untended. A clus ter of negro cabins near the spot were falling into decay. As Raymond walked up the hill a buggy drove past him. la It sat, be side the coachman, a man of about forty years, with a saturnine face. The man laughed as Denison stepped quickly aside. Denison shook his fist at the vehicle in front of him. “If you’re my dou ble,” he said, “I'm going to show you who is the better man.” The buggy was standing at the door of the house when Denison entered. The door stood open, and Denison’s ring brought po servant in response. Denison entered and walked toward what was evidently the reception room. Inside he heard the voices of a man and a werran. Denison always regretted it after ward, but he could not help stopping for a few mcmentc to listen. For the first words that reached his ears com prised his name. “Mr. Dcnlscn, I have changed my mind,” said the girt. “Surely a worn- au Is privileged to do that?” “You’ve played fast and loose with me,” answered the man in surly tones. “You say you Avrote me to give you six months. I never got that letter. I guess you must have addressed it Shanghai, China, Instead of Shanghai, Mississippi. Then when I came to see you, you agreed to marry me at Christmas.” “I have changed my mind," repeated the girl stubbornly. “You have, eh? Well, let’s have “He put his name to a fraudulent document.” “I'll never marry you now.” said the girt with slow conviction. “You have shoAvn yourself in your true colors to day. T Avlll marry no man under a threat, hot even to save my father’s name. Now you have my answer. Let go my wrist!” A cry came from her lips; and it was then that George Denison, stand ing outside-the door, awakened from his stupefaction and opened it. His double, wild with rage, was holding the girl’s Avrists fiercely In his, while she struggled desperately to es cape from him. As Denison ran for ward the man released the girt and turned njicn him. He saw the look in Denison’s eyes and fell back; as he did so he suddenly whipped a re- A'olver from his belt and fired. The shot grazed Denison’s cheek, and he felt the blood drip upon his hand. The next moment his fist had shot forward, catching the man under the chin, and he Avent doAvn like a log. The girt, who had drawn back in amazement, screamed Avlth fear. But Denison turned to her and spoke gently: “He is all right, but he won’t trou ble you again. Would you like to leave this place now?” ‘Tes!” she cried. “I Avant to go. I never AA-ant to see it again. l am ready ^ to go anywhere.” i Denison’s heart leaped. “Are you ' ready to go to Shanghai?” he asked. “I mean Shanghai, China, not Missis- How Fourl Girls From Ohio Got Coveted Tickets O UT in Clevelf^d, O., there are four young AA-omen who are telling hOAv they suAV the president deliver his railroad strike message to the joint session of congress.

There aa-iis p6 question about the dress being spoiled. Tiller had upset a large cup of coffee, and every bit of it had fallen into the young woman’s lap. Suddenly she said: “Are you a member of congress?” Mr. Tiller resented the accusation. “Because if you are,” continued the coffee-stained one, “If you would get us, a ticket to th.i gallery today I Avould forgive you.” She said thav.
