She had not told Dick Shannon of her she was nnxious. as far as Ssible. to dispense with his assis- _.flce. The desire for independence is hhate in every woman, and her will- Jnfmess to accept help from a man in inverse ratio to her regard for him, Audrey Bedford liked him enough to shrink from his help. There was a certain amount of hu- < %lor In her ultimate choice of occupation. Once, in the days of Meak farm, %he had written to a weekly journal, "•which labored under the cumbersome JSitle. the Amateur Poultry Farmer and ^Allotment Holder. There had devel- ^Dped between Audrey and the editor M long and intimate correspondence mi bout the diet of sick hens, and it had ^occurred to her that even the Amateur ^Poultry Keeper and Allotment Holder Jlid not appear week after week with- Jfeut some professional assistance. She Svtote a letter to the editor, was re- jSnembered and summoned to his untidy Spffice and there and then offered a position on his staff. * "We want somebody to deal with *lhe poultry correspondence," he said. * The theory that professions influence Appearances had some support in the JJfact that he looked rather like an el- Jperly hen himsely. _ "I think you will be able to tackle •fhat. We want two columns a week irfor the paper; the rest you can an•ewer privately. If you find yourself »*lp against some proposition that you •fcan't solve, refer to your reply on %he subject in our issue of March, TL903. It will give you time." 2£ The salary was not large, certainly Insufficient to maintain her in the jTSplendid state which had been hers; {but she utilized the remainder of the /day to find lodgings and discovered «a very cheery room near to her work. * On her way she announced the fact to *'the assistant manager of the hotel. * "I'm sorry you're leaving us, Miss 'Bedford," said that gentleman' with ^professional regret. "YouMl be giving , up your room as from tomorrow at 12 I o'clock. We hope to see you again" I She for her part hoped he wouldn't. i The hotel had unpleasant associations i for her and she was looking forward * eagerly to the quietude of her own * little room. * Dick had called early to see her, ex* peeling to find her still suffering from * the shock of her unpleasant experi- | ence of the night before. He was ,, agreeably surprised to learn that she , had gone out. Later, one of his men t reported that the girl had secured an * appointment and he hurried round to * congratulate her. * "You've saved me telephoning for 'you." * "Why?" he asked quickly. "Has * anything happened? You haven't had •another communication from—" ' "No." She shook her head. "I don't .think I shall; and if I do, I shall cer- , tainly send for you. I've splendid »news." * "You're going back to the poultry ' business—the editorial side." .' He laughed at her surprise. *• "Of course your shadow—that is "irtiat you call him, isn't it? It's awfully romantic, but a little embarrass- t Ing aUtimes, to have a man chasing .one. I'd forgotten his existence." * "Why did you want to see me?" i She opened her handbag, took out a i little pebble and laid It 'on his out- J stretched hand. ,«[ "That," she said. "I meant to have ? «told you before." * * 3 « i For FATHERS' DAY FOULARD TIES in fashion's newest color PRIMROSE Yellow T HIS beautiful jiUbK-1 hliadi- will tune, in with and tone up your buninier ensemble.

"Where on earth did you get this?" "Is it important?" she asked. "I meant to have told yon before. .1 found It in the hnllwny at 551, the first time I went to soe Mr. Malpas. 1 dropped the key when I was trying to unlock the door and searching for it 1 found this little stone." Dick's mind flashed hack to his interview with Tirown. or Torrington. \vlio had shown him n similar 'stone.' "What is it?" she nsked again. "It is a diamond in the rough. Its value is something like 800 pounds." She gasped. "Are you sure?" Ht nodded. Carrying the diamond to the window, he made a closer inspection of the seal-. "You're certain it's a diamond?" "It is a diamond all right, and the seal is that of the mining company. May I keep this?" She was relieved. "I wish yon would." "Does anybody else know you have it?" She shook her bead. "Nobody, unless Mr. Malpas knew, and that'isn't likely, is it?" Dick considered the possibilities. "Nobody else has seen it?" She thought for a long time. "I don't think so," she said slowly, "unless—yes, I remember. I went the other day to the reception clerk for the key of my loom, and it wasn't there, and I turned everything out of my bag on to the counter, and found H_the key, I mean—In the torn lining." "That's when he saw it—a.nd when I say 'he.' I mean either he or his agent. I should think this partly explains why he tried to get you last night." "Every day and in every way I am more and more sorry I left my peaceful farm!" she said. "You don't know what a warm feeling I had when my dear poultry editor asked me if I know how to cure molting hens!" She went up to her I'oom that night in a happier frame of mind than she had had in years. She felt that, with her new work, she was leaving behind her the unwholesome atmosphere in which she had moved and lived since her coming to 'London. She locked the door of her room, and in her relief was asleep almost as soon as she turned her head on the pillow. And so she slept through the early part of the night, and did not wake till something cold and clammy touched her face. "Audrey Bedford, 1 want you," said a hollow voice. She sat up with a shriek. The room was in complete darkness, except— Not a yard away from her was a face, suspended, it seemed in midair, a face strangely and dimly illuminated. She stared at the closed eyes, the pain-creased face of Lacy Marshall! (Tu Be Continued) ROBOT WATCH DOG.

McMtT,T,AN Stnft Correspondent PARIS, June 7.—Known to ultra- modish French society as the best- dressed American In Paris, and international dandy, E. Berry Wall has started n, revolution in fashion. He wants to bring back the silk hat and boiled shirt, the frock-coat and white spats, and ho wants young Americans to help him. "It will he a hard proposition to gel American young men to dress as they should." he remarked while walking with his favorite dog in the Tulleries Gardens, "but it is going to happen. American girls travel more these days and in London and Paris they see and meet men who know how to dress. They go back, these girls, to the United States and try to Instil some sense of fashion into their menfolk." American men are too indifferent and independent to be able to dress well, he holds. Most of them are standardized In their clothes and when someone tries to be individual he usually rha.kes a freak of himself. As the man who first. Introduced the tuxedo to America, Berry Wall In his youth was himself an Individualist, but he claims that, his individualism WAS sane, Reasoned And J\lsUftetl, because the dinner jacket has since won international recognition. "I don't see what la to prevent young Americans coming back to tails and toppers. When I used to ride to hounds in the stales we wore, everyone of us, Ihe correcl lop hat and riding-coal. We would have scandalized each olher If we had not Nowadays fellows go on Ihe hunting field in 9. pair of breeches and an ordinary jacket. "Fancy, again, what would have happened if in the heyday of fashion In New York any of us had gone to the opera in luxedo with straw hat! I shiver to think of It, yet young j Americans commit worse dress errors than that." Intimate friend of that royal dandy, King Alfonso of Spain, with whom he often swaps dress hinls in Ihe Palacio Real at Madrid, Berry Wall is an equally well known figure in the great race-courses of England as he is on the Rue de Rlvoli, where he has a sumptuous hotel suite. He meets there from time to time every celebrity in the world, -including the Prince of Wales. In Paris, he is a, lireless race-goer. At every big meet at Auteuil or Longchamps he is conspicuous as a model of sartorial correclness, even among the elile of Ihe upper set of France. In the season he would no more dream of going to Longchamps without his silk hat and beautifully cut formal clothes than he would think of sitting (town to A bttHquet In da "The trouble with silk hats nowadays," he says, "Is that the good old-fashioned valet Is no more. You've got to have a good man to keep the gloss on your topper, and In these modern hotels you can't get the right kind of valet." As well as stiff shirts and tall-coats, Berry Wall clings to the Byron collar, which distinguishes him as an American gentleman of fashion of Ihe old school as he walks sedately with his champion chow in the gardens where once stood the palace of the kings of France.

Since announcements were made that Idaho was planning a. few wild horse roundups, to clear Ihe ranges of the useless animals, and make room cittie ftn<! otto*' «ata*bl» sfet many sofMS&rted easterheM have sprung to the defense of the lowly mustang and bangtail, And Thrallkill has received varied offers for animals. Most of the offers he receives are accompanied by remarks which lead him to believe that some people do not relish the thought of sending wild horses to canning factpries, from which places they emerge In tins bearing various cat and dog food labels. Cash and trades are suggesled. Some people wanl horses given lo them, promising "good homes and loving care" in relurn, for the animals. One youth, who had heard that a small boy obtained a horse tn exchange for three rabbits, volunteered to raise the ante. He offered Thrail- klll one Chinchilla, One checkered giant, four New Zealand reds, two Flemish giants, and fourteen nondescript cross-bred rabbits In exchange for three mustangs. He wants one, and he desires to obtain one for his younger brother and one for a pal.
