IS exasperating to have one's heart racked with sympatiiy for some unfortunate and then discover that the discomfort was wholly unnecessary as the person merited no such sacrifice of mental force. A woman who is given to carrying the burdens of others has recently passed through an experience that has left her temporarily hard hearted. She will get over that in time because she is built on sympathetic lines, and laiuis ie experience will be repeated more than once, for there are plenty of shiftless people In the world. The Illness of a kitchen maid sent the woman on the rounds of the employment offices, beginning with the best and ending with those into which drift the lazy and incompetent, with no references, of course. The woman's needs were pressing because she was a wage-earner and had to work hard for her money, so she took what she could get, a stop-gap as she knew, and the prize she drew was a foi lorn-looking woman with a pretty little daughter ten years old. Both wore shabby winter clothing and the mother did not have enough money to pay the office fee. The woman who took her paid both fees, securing the trunk belonging to the pair and took them borne with her. They had eaten nothing since early morning and it was five o'clock wHen they reachel the haven of good food and a comfortable bed. No great results were expected at first, but twenty-four hours settled definitely the question of Incompetency and a lack A desire to earn the wages demanded. Tet the sympathetic woman did not lose her Interest In them and the neighbor were coaxed into contributing to the meagre wardrobe of the two. Another warm hearted woman was enlisted In the struggle to better the condition of these pcor creatures, and a permanent position, with board for botli and wa? for the mother was offered, a home In Maine. Well, a aeries of events in which the laziness and shiftlessness of the mother and her resentment of criticism resulted In the pair being cast back. Into the world of struggle and hardship, which ne'ther seemed to fear. I almost believe that such human bclnps are made on the jelly fish order, that they lack feeling, In a way, and do not suffer from hardship like reasonable beings. Surely women who are dissatisfied with their condition tre ex peeled to make Home effort to change It, and when they are submissive It li waiting energy to attempt to help them.

Cunningham) A.R out on the blue expanss of water two black specks turned smaller and smaller in the distance. Now and then the early morning sun caught the broad blades of the oars with glint like the flash of a diamond, but presently the boats rounded the point of Indian island, and Nan turned to her aunt. "Well." she announced briskly, "we are all alone for the day. Just think of that, auntie, we can iuma- lne we are original settlers ana aione in the trackless wastes." Mrs. Edmond shivered at the sugges tion. nnn't. child." she cried. Is it not enough that we should be left alone?' "It's the most delicious tnmg tnai una happened this summer,' declared Nan. Just th nk of having tne wnoie ot mis Queen of Quagmond lake and you are the dowasef aueen. I guess. ' Let's clear away the- remains of our royal banquet." Suiting: the action to the wora, Kan briskly attacked the breakfast, things, washing them In the tiny brook that went singing over the pebbles , to the waters of the lake.' It did not take long to dispose of the soiled things, and oresentlv the girl turned to her aunt, her nut-brown face glowing from the exercise. "What do you want to do, dear?" she demanded. ' Whatever you wish," Mrs. Edmond smiled Into the radiant face softly framed In the masses of soft hair. "I suppose that we had better wait until Mr. Leland comes over." Wlnt Leland is not coming over," said Nan decidedly. "I want to go somewhere now. Let's take a lunch and climb the mountain. It's such a tiny mountain. It won't tire you. We can stop every little while. I hate to have to climb and climb and climb the way Wlnt Leland wants to." ,'. 'We will do It your way," said Mrs. Edmond gently. "Shall we start at once?" You're the dearest auntie that ever waa," declared Nan, as she planted an enthusiastic kiss upon the lady's wither ed cheek and danced off to prepare the lunch. Mrs. Edmond noticed that the girl kept scanning the lake and guessed the cause. Nan was afraid that in spile of the prohibition Wlnthrop Leland might come paddling around the corner as he had done every morning since the Rankin camp had been opened. The rest of the party, would never have gone across the lake had they not supposed that Leland would be there to do squire duty. It was so like Nan not to let them know. rnire must nave been a quarrel last night. She let her troubled glance wander out along the shore, but there was no sign of the canoe and presently they tied the tent flaps and plunged Into the soft green of the woods. But then Squaw hill was something of a climb for Mrs. Edmond and, stops were frequent, it was well pst noon when they at last halted for lunch, establishing themselves upon a grassy plateau divided by a tiny stream that later cut past the camp. Both were hungry and the sandwiches quickly vanished, but neither made a move to go. Below, the lake glittered like a sheet of burnished sliver in the glare of the sun, a giant salver framed in the changing green of the tree-clad banks. Mrs. Edmond leaned back against the huge rock and sighed contentedly. Nan dropped down beside her and rested her head against her aunt's knee. "It's lovely up here," she said softly. "I wish that we didn't have to go back-ever." 1 "You would tire of It," said the elder woman with a smile. "You are too young and too active to turn recluse, Nan, besides," with an allusion to the girl's speech that morning, "the Queen should not seclude herself from her sub jects." 'Not even when the subjects are un ruly?" Nan asked with a sigh. ".Then least of all," counseled Mrs. Edmond. "She should restore harmony to her subjects and show herself truly a ruler. What was the matter last night, Nan?" s The girl started and colored at the directness of the question. She had not meant such a literal application of her remark. "Wlnt was horrid last night," she said slowly, her glance directed toward the tiny Indian island out in the lake. "He was so certain that we could not do without him that I told him not to come." "And then," a soft hand fell lovingly upon the girl's soft hair. "An then he said he would come anyi way, because he knew I never could run the camp alone, and I told blm I was perfectly able to run the camp and care for you, and that I didn't care. If I never saw him again, and he said I probably never should, and then he went away, and never even said good night." ."Did you expect him to come after your rudeness?" Mrs. Edmond's voice gave no bint of the smile that was playing about her Hps and In the corner of her eyes, Nan, looking straight out across the lake, did not see. "He might have .been polite," she said aggrlovedly. "After you had been so discourteous?" "Well," she persisted. He's so Important. Just as though I could not build a fire or cook and things." "It was very good of him to want to help. ' I think you should apologize to hire." she counseled softly. 1 "Maybe," relenting at little. "I shall speak to blm again, If he's very nice and bumble, but I shan't apologize." "Then Jet us hope that be will not expect It," suggested Mrs. Edmond. "Shall we go on?" And they resumed their climb. Nan was glad enough to rest befors they reached the summit. "It's different," she explained, as she threw herself on the soft moss, "when there is some one to help you up the rocks." "Even men have their uses," laughed Mrs. Edmond. "What a beautiful view we have from here." "When you look out," said Nan grimly. "When you look down, and realize how far we have to go. I'm afraid it will he too much for you. auntie." "Not at ell" said Mrs. Edmond, bravely, but she shuddered as she glanced at the trees far below them, "It will be going down hill, you know." "I'm always making trouble for people," cried Nan, penitently." "It's a peculiarity of queens," reminded Mr. Edmond, "but It will be easy going down, dear." It was not an easy matter, however, for presently the sun sank below the line of hills and the trail through the woods was dark and lonesome. Nan had Insisted that Mrs. Edmond take her arm where the trail made It possible, and though the elder woman tried not o lean heavily upon the girl, Nan's shoulders ached. Suddenly Nan stopped and clapped her hands. "They're back," she cried. "I'm so glad. I never could have cooked supper I've been so worried about it and so hungry!'.' She pointed ahead. Through the trees the firelight gleamed upon the white walls of tents, and already the grateful odor of coffee filled their nostrils. The thought gave them fresh strength and they pushed ahead to the clearing and Nan ' stopped short as Wlnthrop Leland sprang up from the shadows. "Piggy." he called cheerfully, "not to let me in on the trip. I'm heaping coals of fire on your head, Nan.. The coffee and biscuits are ready and some of the finest trout you ever saw are waiting to be ibrolled. Supper will be ready by the time you've changed to moccasins and washed up." "Wlnt." said Nan fervently, ' "you are an anRel and I'm sorry I was cross last night" Mrs. Edmond slipped Into the tent.

Notwithstanding the absence of the artificial safeguards that a conventional society has ordained, circus performers are, as a class, the most moral folk on the face of the earth. An old circus man expressed the fact In this way: "For two hundred years there has not been a domestic scandal nor a divorce among us when both husband and wife were from recognized circus families. In every case where there has been a scandal, either one or the other has been an outsider." Everybody's. Now, What D'ye Think of That? CoDTTtsht. 190T.
