Why does he take every chance he gets for a look at me—as he did to-day on Stony Creek wharf? Why does he never give me a chance to see him? Why is he always in the shadow? I call him 'the man in the shadow.' I say 'man.' He may be a boy, for aug-ht 1 know. Is he my shadow? He seems to think he is. Mr, Terry," she continued earnestly, "I have not said a word of all this to mother or Frank. It wotild worry mother, drive her half crazy. And he seems harmless. I have not said anything- to Frank, he is so •hot-blooded and mig-ht do some terrible thing- before he is quite sure. It all has its ridiculous side. It is so absured that I often find myself laughing- all by myself. But although I often laugh it does worry me greatly— annovs me to death. I know I can trust you, Mr. Terry. I did trust you once before, and you gave me no cause to repent it. What shall I do? What ought I to do? Do you think me wholly absurd? Do tell me what to do, If you can." Paul, who was at first inclined to be amused, did not feel at all like laughing at her when Miss Lebourgeois had finished. It was evidently serious to her. She was certainly distressed. .That was, of enough for him. Then not think Miss Lebourgeois the sort of a girl to make a bug-bear out of nothing. There must be something behind it all beside a man, perhaps an eighth of a mile off, staring in their direction with a pair of field glasses. •But, "Miss Lebourgeois," Paul *aitf, "I must know more about it than you yet have told me. 1 aro sure you are not the girl to be scared over a foolish coincidence. You know, yes, you know"—Paul repeated this with simple emphasis—"that you can trust and command nie. 1 have not known you as we have known each other to f;iil you whe.ri you need me. Tell jne everything—everything." Miss Lebourg-eois, although she did not answer immediately, bu* evidently listened closely to every word. "Here, g-ive :rre the glasses," she said, "and I will look myself. No, I cannot tonight. Don't think me the foolishest g-irl you ever met. But I am, indeed I am, so nervous. I will command myself." There was a pause, during which Paul waited anxiously. Finally Misa Lebourgeois spoke again. "Yes," she said, "we have been here now nearly six weeks. It was three weeks ago that I first noticed my 'man in the shadow.' It was about 11 o'clock in the morning, and I was sitting up here drying my hair after my bath— you know we have a bathing beach on th.R other side of the island. The principal thing 1 tnat i sow Jn him was that you Offal's not see him. That attracted mv attention to him. He rowed by slowly, all by himself. He bent over rery far in rowing, and barely raised hira- »elf at all as he finished the strokes, It must "have beeo very hard work. When 1 first began to look at him he seemed to turn his head away, as if he had been looking at me and feared be- infr detected. He had on a slouch hat drawn completely over his face. That afternoon I saw him rowing back to that island. Again I thought I delect- ed him casting furtive glances at me, only to look down into -the boat when he suspected that I jas looking too. We had three or fou^fdays when the tide was just right that week, and he rowed by each day in the same way. I naturally noted his island and yot in tho habit of looking over there. If it was before or after dinner—we always have a late dinner, even when Frank is away—I always saw wbnt looked like his slouch .hat covering the head of a man whose ayes •were sweeping 1 this direction with his glasses. .Th«al noticed that if onr launch took m« over to Stony Creek I was very sure, before I started back, to »»e that same hat and a wearer, ap- rapfcly tin »ame man, in the shadjar Reporter's Romanc D Ui . BY . . -*HE DEAOON*- or some •ouTlamg watering me. wne» ray bathing- hour changed to afternoon* he did not row by in the morning 1 , but did row by in the afternoon, -when I would be resting- after my plunge. He aeemed to divine my movements Jjeiore I had decided on them myself. He must spend all his spare time covering' this island with his glasses. It must be hard work, we are so shut in by trees. Once, early in the evening, I was walking up from the point, here, to the house, when I saw a hat and fig-ure disappear through the trees. I was frightened '01- a minute. Then I recovered myself and went back 'to the point to look. Sure enough, there he was rowing- by. Since then he has rowed by every evening that I have been out. His hour is usually 7 o'clock. See if he does not come by to-nigh.fc if we wait ior him." As Miss Lelourgeois finished, Paul said nothing for a moment — except the non-committal phrase, "It is strange," giving 1 the emphasis to the "is." They both sat silent looking' off on th» •water, gloriously gilded by the rays of the western sun. Then Paul looked at his watch. It lacked but a few minutes of 7 o'clock. He took up the glasses and pointed them toward the island, in whose tree the mysterious, soft-hatted • stranger seemed so fond of nesting-. There was no soft-hatted stranger in the tree. Paul swept the part of the island in view, and saw some one busy putting 1 out a small boat. $> "Yes," said Paul, "he's coming'to- niffht, sure enough. Let's give him a surprise pa -ty and row out to meet him ourselves. He may take the hint We have lira*. What do vou BUY?" "I'm more than ready." said Miss Lebonrgeois. "I have long-eel to have a close view of him, and this is just my chance, despite that soft hat he pulls so provoking-ly over his head — unless lie gives us the slip and pulls out oi: Dur way. Vv'e cannot chase him, can we? * That would be hardly dignified." gi"No, I hardly think it would be," said Paul. "Yet I should hate to let him get by. But probably he's a better oarsman than I am, for I am all out of practice, and he, from your account, ought to be in splendid form." "He does row beautifully," replied Mia« Lebourgeois. "I must say that for him. If he wasn't a ^good oarsman he could not keep uis lieaa so ridiculously low down, for it must be a "hard task. His boat goes ong smoothly, »nd easily, and swif -y. But you'll see soon for yourself." They had not been standing still while this talk had been going- on. They had been walking- quickly to the little cove where the row-boats were •heltered. Paul found tlie oars in the rowlocks of one. all ready for use. He handed Miss Lebourg-eois in and she took the tiller ropes. He rnade asg-ood time as possible while sheltered by tha island until they came around the point. At a sig-n from his companion he settled down to an easy, don't-care stroke, suited to rowing- a lady around in a barg-e. The boat was headed for the track of the western sun, which gave her an excuse for turning and lowering- her head a little, so that when the boats came near, the man with the soft hat could not get a good, square view of her. In a low tone she said to Paul. "He's very near us now. Yon had better slowly stop rowing, and let her drift awhile." Paul did it, first paddling- a little and then, stopping, drew the oars across the thwarts, and rested his hands on them, and his head oa his hands, in a very natural, informal, chatty attitude. The stranger was abreast of them by this time, not changing- hisusual course a hair's breadth, so Miss Lebourgeois afterward said, nor taking the least notice of them. His big soft hat was pulled down close to conceal his features, and neither of them, much to the disappointment of Miss Lebourgeois, could get the slightest look at his face The impression he made oa Paul was that of a powerful young fellow, of stocky English build, who knew how to handle a boat. He shot by them in. a surprisingly short time, and disap-j pearod around the point of the isl-" and. He usually landed. Miss Lebourgeois said, on an island quite a little beyond Quassapaup-, where there was a small hotel, or inn, or saloon, according to your choice of terms. When he rowed back Miss Lebourgeois did not know. She had never seen him do it. It must be after dark and he must know his course well, for he was always at his post in the tree next day. Paul and Miss Lebourg-eois eyed each other with great disappointment at the complete failure of their scheme. Then Miss Lebourgeois broke out in a hearty laugh. "Well," she said, "my man in the shadow is still thore. He didn't pet away. What a foolish girl you must, think roe, Mr. Terry, to find a mystery because at certain times a man amuses himself by rowing over a .fixed course! Why, I take my bath every day at that time, and he may bathe then, too He may believe in exercise after bathing— soms .people — foolish people — do. It's true he's .always ia Stoay when 1 go there, but that may be a coinci dence. too. Since I hare told you all about it, I hare come myself to disbelieve in my mystery. Don't ever tell about it. It would sound too "No," said Paul, "I don't believe it't all nonsense. It's too queer, too regularly queer, for that. I should like to see him when he sroes bask. There'll be a, moon to-night, -won't'There? R*« true moonlight isn't very good for making personal observations, but I'd like to see if he's as careful to pull his hat down at night. That would be a straw, at least. Let's drift around here until after the moon comes up and see if any taing happens." To this Miss Lebounreois agreed. . So they drifted along in the moonlight, which soon sparkled on the water, and chatted of many things- Miss Lebourgeois' school days in France, Paul's and Frank's college days, Frank's career, now that he had no special object in life, and other topics of common interest They were so deeply engrossed that they did not take much note of a sudden change in the weather. Innocent clouds came up and looked beautifully fleecy in the moonlight, but their fleece soon wa« gone and it grew darker and darker. Then the clouds settled down upon them, and, though it did not rain, a great bank of fog enveloped them. They discovered that they were completely turned around. They did not know which direction was shore, which their island, or which the sound stretching over to Long Wand, miles away. The'tide had been running out, and they must probably have drifted quite a little distance out into the sound. Paul stracJc a match. ani looked at his watch. Itwasonlv 9 o'clock. "J»s» cne time unat mother ana Frank ara coming home," exclaimed Miss Lebourgeois, "wnat will they think? What will they say? How frightened mother will be!" This was the only tbing Miss Lebaurgeois said which could b« called an expression of fear or of criticism. But it cut Paul to the heart. "I am a fine man for you to confide in,"he said, "to row yon out and not notice this fog. How shall I ever face your mother or Frank again?" "Oh, it is I who am to blame, not you." said Miss Lebourgeois, breaking in upon him. "You have not been on the water in a long time, and I have been here all these weeks, and seen these horrid fogs come up suddenly^more than onee. And then Frank has .warned me about them over and over again, for I do a little rowing all by myself." "Wei!, that must be settled when we s-et on shore. But meanwhile we must do someinmg. isn't mere any ligKt bouse about here that will sound a fog bell, so that we can get our bearings?" "Xo," said Miss Leboir.-geois. "there is none nearer than New Haven, or across on Long Island, and we could never hear that." "And I haven't the least thing to make a signal light with," returned Paul. "And if 1 had it would do no good in this fog, which will certainly chill .you through. Here, take my coat. I have a thick waistcoat on, so that I shall not mind. Well, I do declare." he hastily added, as his hand touched his hip pocket, -'here is luck. I have my whisky flask with me, and it is full, so that I can at any rate save you from cold." Paul carefully made his way to Miss Lebourgeois' seat and wrapped bis coat around her. despite her protests. He found that she was shivering already from the chill damp, and he compelled her to swallow a big dose of tha whisky. Then a new thought struck him. "Miss Lebourgeois," he said, "it really makes very little difference, I suppose, so completely are we out of our bearings, whether we row on or whether we drift. But the exercise of rowing will keep the cold o*at,and then we may row right and hit something. You say you can row; suppose you take a turn at the oars. As I have nothing to steev by, you had better guide your-> self." Miss Lebourgeois and Paul changed places. There was not enough tide for them to distinguish any particular drift. So she began a slow, steady stroke, trying to keep the direction the boat was headed, hoping to hrinff up somewhere,if it was only anywhere. Paul lit a cigar, and for five or ten minutes all was silence. Suddenly she stopped. "Are you tired?" Paul asked, anxiously. "No, but what is that noise?" she asked in turn. Then they both strained their eavs to listen. It was luckily a calm sea, and, but for the fog, they might have heard quite a distance. At first nothing was audible. Then it came certainly through the fog, the dreaded sound of a fog whistle. They waited anxiously for half a minute, and then it came again. There was no doubt about it. "It must be some excurc ; "- ^isst." Miss Lebourgeois remarked. "^So regular boats ever go up or down this part of the sound so early In the aven- laz." (To be Continued.) Bow to Keep Cheese.

A cage to be used in dehorning cattle and which can be easily transported by wagon and set down at any convenient place at the opening of a shed or end of a lane is illustrated and described in The National 'Stockman and Farmer: Dimensions.—Six feet long, 6 feet high, 3>' 2 feet wide at top in front and 4)4 feet -wide at top at back end; bottom or "footboard 1 foot wide, with 7 cleats \y, inches thick, 1 foot' long, nailed across it to keep cattle from slipping; footboard 2 inches thick and rests oa three 2 by 4 inch crosspieces 4 feet long. To these are bolted upright pieces 7 feet long and 2 by 4 inches for nailers for sides of cage. Across the top of cage are used two strips I by 4 inches for each set of uprights, bolted one on each side of upright. The inside of thin frame is boarded up with inch plank of convenient widths. The lower 2>£ feet should be close enough to prevent animals putting- their feet through the cracks. On left side, 3,VX feet from bottom, should be used a board a foot wide and a foot longer than the cage. In thii CAGE FOR DEHORNING. bore two inch holes four inches from sides of board. Through these put a piece of rope and tie on outside. This loop is put over the animal's nose and drawn tight by the use of a handspike. An upright lever is used to catch back of the head and draw it to the left side of cage. This upright should be a strong 2 by 4 inch, 9 feet long, bolted to bottom cross piece near the right side, the neper end slipping back and forth between tho crosspieces that hold the tops of the two front uprights in place. This lever is thrown to the right when open for the animal to enter. As soon as the head passes it is pushed to the left side and fastened as tight as required by a small iron pin slipped through the crust-pieces at top back of it. As soon as the head is fastened a haudKpikij is slipped through the cage back of the animal and another over the ueck to hold the head down. These rern.iiu iu place usually without holding, (.be operator standing in front while taking off the horns. The smallest animals having horns up to a bull weighing 1,830 pounds have been dehorned in this sized cage. Animals weighing up to 1,200 pounds pass right through the cage when the holding lever is thrown back against the right side. Cows heavy in calf and larger animals back out of cage. The maker of this cage has remodeled it three times to get it as described and has used it nine years. Effect of Irrigation on Frnit. In commenting upon the enormous yields of fruit in favored localities of Colorado The Irrigation Era says: Irrigation is the cause of full crops every year in that it replaces the mineral elements in the soil that have been taken up by the growing crops. Sunshine, almost perpetual from the time the apple begins to form until it is gathered, gives the fruit such a flavor and color that it readily sells alongside any other apple for double the price. Then, too, they are exceptionally free from insects of any character. The trees bear more fruit, having an abundance of the mineral elements in the soil that are necessary to produce froit. It is only a matter of how much you leave on the trees, or how much they will bear by putting props under the limbs. Corn Floor. Corn flonr has no resemblance whatever to cornmeal. It looks like the finest •wheat flour. It is made from the best white corn after the corn has the germ and hull removed, been thoroughly cleaned, kiln dried and then made into what is known in the trade as ordinary while hominy. From hominy to flour the treatment is about the same as in prinding wheat, but it takes several times as much power to grind corn as it does wheat. In its granular nature the flour resembles the spring wheat flour. Corn flonr keeps longer than any other ground cereal. It has not been known to mold. Cora flour can be used aloue in pancakes, bnt iu all other ways it must be mixed with wheat flour.—Decatur Review. Fainting; HiTes, R. C. Aikin says be has tried paint of all colors, and a hive painted straight black was the worst he ever had for swarming; has had many dark red and thinks they get wo hot and cause swarming; prefers light shades. Doolittle thinks hives should stand in shade from 8:30 to 4:30 o'clock, in which case color will make no difference. Boo he thinks bees do much the best in hives not painted at all, if the hives have single walls. If there's any good reason for paint other than looks, he has never seen it advanced. He wouldn't let any one paint his single walled hives for $1 each. It weald lose him $2 in honey, because it would hinder early breeding. —Progressive Beekeeping. Those terrible dizzy spells to which women are subject due nine tiroes in ten to some weakness or unhealthy condition of the distinctly feminine organism.
