73, A SINGLE THOUGHT. Hornady had finished his story. His six friends smoked on reflectively. To him it seemed as if they were \viiii it _''oi' the point to strike them mid were gi> |f.( l '° tlie Bul) " ject an absorbing mentiil eiioi u The quality of the story was to his practical mind above the average. It had more of common sense than Major Nesbitt's narrative and less of foolish sentiment than Cardgrove'a Btory of love and Indian lighting. He fancied that it would rouse his friends to a high pitch of interest; that it would strike their sense of appreciation of the novel- tee unique. But there was no evidence of fascinated Interest on the calm faces of his friends, no craning forward near the end, no excited questions as to fuller details. The six men eat listening with expressionless faces throughout, the only change being Harding's smile of polite attention to a stolid, unreadable stare. Blake Httnady tilted back his chair and waited. Major Nesbitt bit off the end of his cigar. Cardgrove stroked his brown mustache, while Sammy gazed at Harding. The newspaper man sent a whirl of smoke toward the ceiling and said: "Hornady, it strikes me that your story la too full of common sense to suit this crowd. ' All the people calculate too much on the probable result of a thing; they act just like a business man with your ideas would act." "It was well told," said Cardgrove, "but It is too barren of sentiment. Hornady, I knew you were a business man, but 1 did not know that you were totally devoid of all sentiment." "Nor I," said Roger Cleary. "I've been accused of that myself, but the imputation belongs to Hornady. I'm a very sentimental toan compared to him." "All stories should have a little sentiment in them," said Major Nesbitt, with a vague idea of defending his story, which had a great deal. "Yes," said Carter Handy, the calculating politician, somewhat reluctantly. "There's lots of it in real life." He sighed as if he were sorry that his statement was true. "Tea," said Sammy Smythe, coming from behind his Immense bouquet. ''Yes, and a Btory isn't good if it isn't like real life." Be had heard Harding say something to that effect. Hornady lit a cigar and fished a new looking letter from his inner pocket, a sodden thought striking him. "It's highly discouraging to a man to have his story disapproved of in this fash ion," he said. "It's worse than I thought Your minds, I discover, are upon lov< stories, and I have one here that's fresh and—true." Be drew the two sheets of writing paper from the envelope, which was marked witl • picture of a 16 storied Chicago hotel, am opened them out. "Chicago is not exactly the place I woulc •elect for the scene of a romance if 1 hac the matter wholly in my power," be said "but the little romance to which this lettei is the sequel happened in Chicago undei my very eyes, neither of which facts was in my .power to prevent. "Fatigued, hungry and dust covered went to the Alpharetta hotel on the firs evening of my arrival in the fair city, no knowing that it was the abode of romance and love making. I was influenced to g there, not that I expected to be entertained by a lot of pretty girls being made love t« by a lot of ordinary everyday men, but because of its claims as a superior publi hostelry. My uppermost thought when reached the hotel was to get something sub stantial to eat to make up for the two days futile dependence for subsistence upon th coon who operates the buffet in one of Mr Pullman's sleepers. "The moment I freed myself trom the ex terior polish of granulated soil which I hac acquired on the journey I went full tilt to the cafe. "I there discovered that I bad no monop oly on the desire to eat. I found that it was predominant in the minds of about HOC World's fair visitors, who were hugging th tables, eating and chatting. Howanothe mortal could get a seat in the hungry, feet ing throng I could not see, and started ou to search for a quiet cafe down the street. "But the diamond bedecked and prosper ous looking young man who guides th footsteps of those who wander into his caf to be fed beckoned me to him and said in tone that instantly made me feel at home 'There's a seat over there at a table when two young gents and a young lady from ou in Washington state are sitting.' "I took the seat with such alacrity us t startle into silence one of the young men— a spectacled, clerical looking young fellow, with college airs about him, who was talking about the relative merits of water and land transportation to the fair in a very enthusiastic way, and incidentally engaging himself in suppressing any remarks that the hale and hearty young fellow with the blond mustache might attempt to make. "The three gazed at me reproachfully, as if they thought I was intruding upon them. The young lady was a unique bit of western beauty, with a bewitching eye and brown hair, which had an overweening d««ire to go astray on the sides and dangle in the Chicago breezes. Shu mentally sized me up and apparently approved of mu, and. softening the gaze, she turned in my dims tion. "The hale and hearty VOUIJK fellow wiUi the blond mustache and diamond niii •cowled at me, and the younw fellow with the clerical look uud gold rimmed eyc#luhwsH vainly attempted to wither me »ii)i his gUZO.

" 'I agree with Miss Silvey altogether,' said the hale and hearty young man dog- [edly, waving his hand in dismissal of the ubject. 'Oh, thank you, Mr. Blipp,' she aid. 'That's BO nice. You have such road views. Do you like the plaisance, Mr. Blipp?' 'Delighted with it,' he said, perfectly delighted.' 'It's a grand congress of fakes,' said the clerical Mr. Spinks. 'It ought to be banished from the grounds. It ms no place in the same inclosure with such a grand thing as the Art building.' Miss Silvey's eyes lighted up at the mention of the Art building. 'Oh, isn't it grand!' she cried. " 'I could spend a whole year looking at the divine paintings there. I have only spent one day in it yet. I am going there the flrsk thing tomorrow morning and stay all day. 1 Both young men tried to speak at once, but Mr. Spinks spoke first. 'And may I go along and enjoy the pictures with rouf he asked. 'I will be delighted to mve you," she said. Perclval Blipp looked very blue and buried his countenance in a glass of milk. "The conversation ran on. Spinks was ecstatically happy; Blipp sank into deepest misery. The two rivals—for it was too evident that they were such—glared at each other and consistently disagreed on every point. Spinks said he thought the ethno- ogical exhibit highly interesting. "Blipp said it was a musty old collection of mummies that offended the sight and ought to be ruled out of the fair. Spinks said he thought the roller chairs an excel- ent method of getting about the grounds and saving time. Blipp said they were only ntended for decrepid old women and inva- Ids. Miss Silvey's eyes sparkled with de- ight at the exchange of pleasantries be- iweenhertwo lovers. She glanced at me roguishly and encouraged the two young fellows to go on. "This translated love affair was an amusing comedy, and I lingered at the table as long as the young lovers kept it going. Instinctively my sympathy went out to Percival Blipp, and I watched the progress of the conversation, his defeats and his rallies, with that interest one feels in following the fortunes of a hero in a play or book. "I conceived a strong liking for his open honest face. I gathered trom the conversation that he was a mine owner, and I liked him all the better for that. Spinks was a young lawyer, and as Blipp rose in my estimation he fell correspondingly. "I took my first look at the fair the next morning. I remembered Miss Silvey's announcement that she was going to spend the day in the Art building, and late in the afternoon I went there hoping to catch sight of them. I stumbled upon Blipp five minutes after I got inside. He seemed to be wandering about in a desultory fashion, gazing at the pictures in a perfunctory, disinterested way. <He recognized me and smiled. 'I remember your face at the table last night,' said he. 'My name is Percival Blipps, Spokane Falls, Wash. Looking at the pictures?' "He rambled on without any apparent method or object. He kept sending inquiring glances ahead, and presently I recognized, a few feet away from us, Miss Silvey and Spinks. If they were not enjoying the show, why, appearances don't count for anything. They were holding a guidebook between them and alternately searching through its leaves for the numbers and looking at the pictures, giving every symptom of pleasure. "Blipp Tiuw that 1 recognized them, and he'blushed. 'There they are,' he said, half guiltily; 'they've been taking it in all day.' I laughed out loud. 'And you,' said I, 'and you—you've been following them about.' I laughed louder than ever. 'That's about the size of it,' he said. 'Do you think she likes him best?' I asked. 'Oh, I don't know,' he said, dismally but earnestly; 'it's been going on like this for a year and a halt At home both of us have been trying (desperately to win her, but the contest seems to be so evenly matched that it looks as if we were still neck and neck. " 'When she came to the fair, of course we followed. She's certainly been leading us a race. One day it's Blipp and the next it's Spinks. It's Spinks today.' He was so genuinely miserable that I felt sorry for him. As he finished he made a sudden dart and disappeared through a door to the right. I stopped iu amazement and found the explanation of his startling conduct iu Miss Silvey and Spinks, who hod turned and were coming back to« urd us. She was saying that she would prefer to go back ou a steamer. After they had passed, Blipp sneaked back. 'Have they gone?' be asked apprehensively. They were disappearing in the crowd, and we followed. " "i'hiH is touuh luck,' ho said, as be scrambled along to keep in sight. 'You can't appreciate it, old man, unless yon'vc been through it. What would you do? Abk her and risk it, or keej* ou like this until she indicated which she liked beatf' " 'I don't know, 1 I uoid. 'TbiH is hardly the place to ask a girl to marry you, but it's an excellent place to prepare her for it. If 1 can help you, let me know.' "'Thank you, thank you,' he said gratefully. "We were just in time to get on the steamboat, and after we rushed on with the crowd thu young lady did not see us. Blipp hurried around ou the opposite side from them and leaned against the rail regarding thuni furtively. The steamboat was slushing along u mile from the fair when the young miner totted his cigar Into the lake and blurted toward them. 'Como along,' suld he, 'I'll Introduce you,' "It WUH with a fiuu affectation of sur- priBe that I31if|j greeted them, 'You here!' he exclaimed gayly, 'how lucky!

I had curls on the gangplank ft minute before. 'They'll be along presently," I said consolingly. 'Wait.' He did wait. We were the last people to leave th« steamer. He stood on the pier gazing up the flight of steps with a lost expression. " 'Damn itl' he said. "It was my intention to go to the theater that night, and ns I started out I looked around for the lovers' party. Spinks was standing near the register, a picturaof dejection and gloom. 1 touched him on the shoulder. " 'Hello, Spinks, are you going out tonight?" "He looked at me darkly. " 'Yea, I'm going to tne theater.' " 'What theater?' " "He turned to the ticket scalper in the corner. " 'Didn't you sell some tickets to a fat young man with brown mustache and a western accent tonight?" he asked. " 'I did. 1 " 'What theater? 1 " 'Schiller's.' " "Spinks turned to me. " 'I am going to Schiller's,' he said. "The theater was crowded; but, being on time, we got good seats. The play was 'The Girl I Left Behind Me,' a drama full ol stirring situations. But Spinks was not stirred. He didn't even see the ploy. His eyes were turned to the right. Following the direction of his gaze, I recognized Miss Silvey. Seated beside her was Percival Blipp, his face flushed with delight. Just behind them sat Mrs. Silvey. Miss Silvej recognized us and smiled so sweetly that Spinks' gloom was lifted like a mist before the sun. ' "He writhed in bis chair and waited impatiently for the end of the act so that he could go to them. I saw that heroic measures were necessary. Before the curtain hac swung half way down I was on my way t« the box. I took the one vacant seat. From where I sat I could see Spinks, sitting straight in his seat and looking straight it front, an unforgiving expression on his face. "The next morning I was not purp to see Spinks sitting in the hole? lobbj gloomily poring over a paper. It was at late as 10 o'clock, and I wondered if he was waiting for Miss Silvey. He was evident!; in a bad humor still. I apologized for hav ing left him so abruptly the night before at the theater, and to cement our re-established friendship asked him to drink with me. He said he had already trotted ou three pony cocktails that morning. "I decided that Blipp and the young lady had gone or were going to the fair, and tc preclude all chance of meeting them I proposed that we take a jaunt to Lincoln park He astonished me with the alacrity with which he accepted the suggestion. I could only explain his ready acceptance by mentally deciding that he bod given up all hope ol being with Miss Silvey that day. "After we had taken a turn or two about the park I discovered the reason for hie coming. The reason was Miss Silvey. We. came upon her quite suddenly, strolling along with her mother. He evidently was not surprised and stepped forward smiling. Unconsciously I had done Blipp a bad turn, but I made the best of it. By one ol those graceful flank movements characteristic of myself I gained Miss Silvey's side, and by the use of a little diplomacy led he: away. Spinks had nothing to do but to drop behind with the mother. I fancy she was not favorably impressed that morning by the conversation of the young man who wanted to be her sop-in-law. The young lady and I got along swimmingly until an unexpected interruption. "Ju»t at a bend in the walk A young gentleman stepped in front of us. He came' EG suddenly into view from behind a little summer bouse that I was impressed with the belief that he had been lurking there. He lifted his hat and made a fine show ot pleased surprise. 'Why, Miss Silvey— Mr. Hornady, this is unexpected, I'm sure, but delightful' — 'How you frightened met' said Miss Silvey. 'Where did you come from, Mr. Blippi" Quite nutturally he turned and walked -'-.jpK a furtive glance be"> suddenly occurred tc fftmough of the park, and m I hod an engage- waited until Spinka and the mother came up. Spiuks lookec doggedly at his watch and spitefully at Blipp and said he was sorry, but tie had an engagement too. "He walked along beside me, sullenly refusing to speak. After we were on the cm he suddenly lookup up and asked, 'Horua dy, aru you married?' "I put on a sorrowful expression. 'I wae married once,' I said. He flushed up, bit his thin mustache und seemed sorry for his question. " 'I see,' he said at length; 'a widower.' "A week later I was sitting in an obscure end of the cafe with Spiukt), who inslstec on my taking supper with Win. A waiter held a delicately perfumed envelope over my KhouUU;r and asked if 1 was Uluke llor nody. I took the letter und held it up to the light. Spinku gluiiced utthe superscription and gave a nervous start. Hu hud rec oguized Miss Hilvey's bund writing. "I read the note, refolded it carefully, iu carefully replaced it iu thu envelope aiu very tenderly put it in my pocket. 'Look here,' blurted out Spinks, 'ore you in lov« with that young lady— Is sue in love witl you?' I looked ut him very severely am his guzo faltered. Then he continued 'You have come between Miss Silvey urn myself ever siuco thu first time wo BUW you. It's always you or Dlipp.' Ho uttered thu last name like an explosive. regarded him curiously, and before 1 couli make up my mind what to any hu left thu table hurriedly. "I walked to thu clerk's desk to leave the key with him. lillpp WUB leaning ou the counter uud greeted me pleasantly.

You see 1 don't want to infringe on his good nature—for he is good natured,' she added Something seemed to flash across bertniml 'And Mr. Spinksf" she asked. 'Oh,' I «• plied, 'he is going out with me.' 1 'I am so sorry you are going away just we are getting acquainted,' Tho last thing she said to me was in reference to Spiuks. 'You seem to have formed a great liking for him, 1 she said. 'You and he are ilmost constantly together. I am gliwl yon like him, 1 she added confldiiily. "He it< very popular in Spokane and has n great future, I think.' 'And Blipp?' I said. She did not hear me. "That night I weut to the theater, and bom a quiet corner, safe from observation, I looked down upon Percival Blipp seated beside Miss Silvey, glowing with happiness. I stumbled upon Spinks as I went out. He glowered upon me and strode on ''1 caught an early train for Atlanta next morning.' My interest In this three cornered love affair had become so great that I was half tempted to stay and see the outcome. I heartily regretted to lose sight of the three young people altogether. I thought of the hotel clerk. He was a nice young man and seemed to know his bus! ness. I started to tell him about the affair, but he gave me a knowing wink. 'I know,' he said. 'And will you write me how it comes out?' I asked. He nodded. "I have pictured a hundred different ends to tbe affair. Once 1 even pictured to myself the possibility of my becoming a widower and marrying Miss Silvey. Then 1 saw her marry another fellow. But the termination that suited, me best was the one in which Percival Blipp married ber. "My speculations were ended this morning by tbe receipt of this letter: HOTEL ALPBARBTTA, Chicago. B.

Shinet Through Metal, In a paper read before the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences it is shown by Hertz that the rays which proceed from thi cathode of a Reissler are capable of excitini phosphorescence and will permeate thin metal—It being thus possible, on finding a sheet of metal foil thick enough to be air tight, yet thin enough to be permeable b; sucb discharge,*) allow these rays a pass-^ age into the open air by closing an opening in a discharge tube with a piece of sucb foil. This, it seems, has been realized by means of an ingeniously arranged apparatus and a hammered aluminium plate 0.003 millimeter thick, and this plate forms in the apparatus u shut to or window, which, while quite impermeable to air and light, allows the rays from a cathode at a distance of 12 centimeters to penetrate it freely, the rays rendering the air faintly luminous. A halo of bluish light surrounds the window and is moderately bright only ou i^s surface, a strong odor of ozone being at the same time recognizable. Substances capable of phosphorescence, if held near the window, shine with their peculiar light on the side nearest to it, but all the phenomena of phosphorescence cease if a magnet U so applied to the discharge tube as to repel the cathode rays from the inner side of the window. The atmosphere is a dull medium for the cathode rays to penetrate. CoaJ gas is more permeable, and BO is hydrogen.—New York Sun. The Mole. The mole works like a horse and eats UKO an elephant.
