A MISSING MINISTER By ELLA aOOHAN CBUICB HOW MUMc-4t wnrmit^ (CopjrrigbJ, by Joseph B. Bowles.) Mlu Margie Rubbleton, liater of Rer. Samnd Rubbleton. was quietly •ewing this afternoon, wben sbe waa suddenly disturbed br a loud rappiuR at tbe door. On opening slie found youog Nelson Cbardlelgh there in a most excited frame of mind. Nelson waa to be married to'pretty Florence Gberton the next afternoon. In answer to a question as to tbe cause of his visit he said: "I am really troubled—and that is why I am here.^ You were always a kind friend of mine, and, perhaps you can advise me what to do. His reverence, as you perceive, is not forthcoming. I went to the sutlon before the morning train was due. and waited patiently unUl all the living freight had dlaembarked; but no Mr. Rubbleton. You know he said, on going away, that be would probably take tbe morning train; if not. he wonld be sure to come at evening—but he would feel safer to come in the morning. Xow, when you reflect that there is only one more train In which he could possibly come. In order to perform the ceremony— and that something may occur to cause him to miss the train—you must admit that .circumstances look rather discouraging." The poor fellow was evidently in a state of great nervous excitement, as well he might be; itor if Samuel gave him tbe Blip at the last moment (as I tbonght he was quite likely to do), wonld he not be set down as "a laggard in love." like the miserable rival of "young Lochlnvar?" "Miss Margie, what is to be done? It will scarcely be safe to hang our last hope upon the evening train: and quest of some one else. Suppose that Mr. Rubbleton should have a fit? Or 50.000 other things that might happen? Just put yourself in my place. Miss Margie, and fancy how you would feel under the circumstances; Of course. you couldn't, though, very well; but 111 t»ll you how I feel—like going out to engage some one to oOlclate to-morrow. In case Mr. Rubbleton don't appear." "But would any of the clergy be wiling to make such an arrangement?" •aid I, smi'ing at the idea. "We cao drum them up and try," was the eager response. "There is Dr. Poacher," said I, re- flectlngly; he is the nearest—we might go to him first." "That stiff-looking old gentleman, who is so absent-minded?" was the irreverent reply. "I am afraid be would read the burial service over us by mistake." "Well," said I, not able to contradict this statement, "suppose we try Dr. Kem?" "He'll do nicely. I've no doubt:: but let us start speedily. Jiiss Margie, for October afternoons have wings, yoti know." I heaved a quiet sigh as 1 glanced at my sewing: but It seemed to be my fate always to have some helpless man on my hands, who required all my time and energies. In answer to our ring a smiling servant informed us that .Mr. Klem was out to tea at the time. I verily believe that Nelson would have bad the reverend gentleman dragged from the tea-table, without the slightest compunction, had I not Interposed and Informed our smiling friend with as severe a look as I could muster, that we would not trouble him farther. We left him standing on the broad steps, and gazing after us with a wondering smile Stereotyped on his face. "Didn't that gentleman strike .'ou M a little peculiar?" asked the un- ausportlng Nelson. He was evidently a stranger to the conviction that had ixiddenly flasheu through my mind, and amused me mightily. "WTiere shall we goT Nelson asked in dismay. "I scarcely dare mention Dr. Poacher again," said I. "Let us try him:" he exclaimed. A walk of abojut a n-jle farther brought us to a nice, old-fashicned place where Dr. Poacher spent much of his time In secluded study. We werie almost sure of finding him, and raised the brass knocker quite confidently. » A very honest looking Irishwoman, who was afflicted with a chronic grin, soon made her appearance, and gazed upon us with tender interest. It was some little time before we learned that Mr. Poacher" was not just at home now." "How soon would he be In?" was the eager inquiry. "Mebbe in an hour; you can come fcack and see." We exchanged looks: and the Irishwoman assured us that "she would bold him at home for us wben he eame. "What did possess that woman to grin so?" said Nelson, rather angrily, ac we left the door. "Have you auy id^. Miss Margie? Is there anything queer about either of us, that people net so curiously?" i "Yes." I replied, enjoying his excitement, "I have some idea." "Well, what Isilt?" f ! '•yihr, I ttaiak all these people Imag- liub tfe«t you kave heed silly enoufb^o pataet ae (or the iMlde." | rtmt lM4r'.te «uIiaMd. 'Yor yok Composers Cannot Tell - Just How They Do It. A St. Loaii composer, whose operas have achieved popularity alt over the United States, was recently asked iow he ^oompoeeJ aaale. '1 don't koow," be said, "sometimes ».melody is suggested to me by the words of a poem, sometimes by a sound like tbe rumble of a street car, or the rattle of tfie wheels of a railroad train, ^nd sometimes it comes as an inspiration without any origin that can, be traced, jpeople occasionally nave the idea tba!:. after a melody is written, the composer must sit down at the piano and | hammer out a harmony, but, as a fact, no musician ever hears a melody without at the same time beading in his own mind all the harmonies that are appropriate to It." A St Louis orchestra leader, who is also a composer, says that he never tries to write music until he feels the laspiration. "Sometimes days will pass without writing a line, simply because I feci no inriination to write. Then, all of (iRAND Theatre Tuesday, R Nov. J Prices, 25c, 35c 50c, 75c. cow BOYS. . RANGERS .

DRAINING SWAMP LANDS. The Process Is Going on All Over the Country, At an eapense of about $20 an acre, Dan V. Stephens, of Fremont. .\eb., is said to have .converted 420 acres of practically worthless Platte Valley snrarap into valuable farrii land, worth, perhaps, 1100 an acre. While the food producing capacity of the country and Its home manufacture consuming capacity are being enlarged by irrigation, the gaining of the same end by the converse process of drainage is not being neglected. The Dismal .Swamp of Virginia and North Carolina. 1 ,000 square miles In extent, has long been shrinking as part after part has been drained and turned into the most fertile of farm land. Eventually, the entire area will be producing crops. Minnesota has recently drained swamp lands belonging to the •rtate. and the value of the land at (inee rose rapidly. The state of Florida 's largely a swamp which will one day be turned into a garden spot. Drainage operations are becoming eoromon along the Missouri in Nebraska.— Kansas City Suir. Auto Seemed Out of Place. One day last week a passenger In a Jerome avenue car noticed a smart touring car with a canopy top s-ving out of Woodlawn cemetery In whlA were seated Ave persons, all in deep mourning, end even the chauffeur was in a black livery. By chance both tbe trolley car and the automobile had to stop owing to the road b?lng blocked, and from the manner In which the passengers in the car "rubbered" at the party of automobile mourners it wai plain that their appearance in the motor struck the onlookers as unusual. "Well," one old lady remarked. "I think they might keep those thiagi out of the cemeteries at least" Sequel to a Murder. The murder of a family 'n a lonely country In Hungary has had a remarkable sequel. Gypsies are suspected, and every tribe dnd caravan in the province surrounding Buda-Pest has been placed under arrest on suspicion. It is believed tbe government will utilize the occasion for stamplnx out nomadism In Hungary. Cause and EffscL "Pop!" •Tes. my son." "I think our hen is going to lay an egg."
