r SHIPS THAT PASS IN THE NIGHT. fif BEATEIOE HARBADEN. O&APTER X. tnS DISAGREEABLE MAM IS BEEN IN A NEW MGHT. One specially Una morning a knock camo at Bernardine's door, She opened It and found, Robert Allltsen standing tkero try* Ing to recover his breath. "I am going to Loschwltz, « village about 18 miles off," ho said. "And I have ordered a sledge. Do you core to come toof" "M I may pay my share," she said. "Of course," ho answered. "I did not suppose you would like to bo paid for any better than I should like to pay for you." Bernardino laughed. "When do wo start?" she asked. "Now," he answered. "Bring a rug, and also that shawl of yours which is always falling down and come at onco without any fuss. Wo shall be out for the whole day. What about Mrs. Grundyf We could manage to take her if you wished, but she would not be comfortable sitting among the photographic apparatus, and I certainly should not give up my seat to her." ''Then leave her at home, " said Bernardino cheerily. And so they settled It. In less than a quarter of an hour they bad started, and Bernardino leaned luxuriously book to enjoy to the full her first •ledge ride. It wag all new to her— the swift pass Ing through the crisp air without any sensation of motion; the sleepy tinkling of the bells on the horses' heads; the noiseless cutting through of the snow path. All these weeks she hod known nothing of the country, and now she found herself in the snowy fairy-land of which the Disagreeable Man had often spoken to her— around vast plains of untouched snow, whiter than any dream of whiteness, jeweled by the sunshine with priceless diamonds, numberless as the sands of th« sea; the great pines bearing their burden of enow patiently; others, less patient, having shaken themselves free from what the heavens had sent them to bear, anij now the streams, flowing on reluctantly over ioe coated rocks and the ICG cathedral* formed by the Icicles between the rocks. An* always the same silence, save for the tinkling of the horses' bells. On the heights the quaint chalets, some merely huts for storing wood; on others farms or the homes of peasants; some dark brown, almost block, betraying their age; others of a paler hue, showing that the sun had not yet mellowed them Into a deep rich color. And on all alike, the fringe of iolclco. A wonderful white world. It was a long time before Bernardino even wished to speak. This beautiful whiteness may become monotonous after a time, but. there is something very awe Inspiring about it, something which catches the soul and holds It. The Disagreeable Man sat quietly by her side. Once or twice ho bent forward to protect the camera when the sledgo gave a lurch. After gome timo they met a procession of sledges laden with timber and August, the driver, and Robert Allitsou exchanged some fun and merriment with the driver.} in their quaint blue smocks. Tho iioiso of the conversation and the excitement of getting post the sledges brought Bernardino book to speech again. . "I have never before enjoyed anything go much, " sho said. ''So you have found your tongue," ho Bold. "Do you mind talking a littlo nowf I feel rather lonely." This was said in such a pathetic, aggrieved tone that Bernardino laughed and looked at her companion. His face wore an unusually bright expression. Ho was evidently 'out to enjoy himself. "You talk," she said, "and toll mo all about the country. " And be told her what be know and, among other things, about tho avalanches. He was able to point out where some had fallen tho previous year. Ho stopped in tho middle of his conversation to toll her to put up her umbrella. "I can't trouble to hold it for you," ho •aid, ''but I don't mind opening It. Tho sun Is blazing today, uiul you will got your eyos bud if you uro not careful. Tliut would be a pity, for you soum to u:u rnthur better lately. " "What iv confession for you to nmke of any one!" sold sln>. "Oh, I don't menu to say that you will ever got well, "ho uddud grimly. You teem to have pullud yourself In too nuuty directions for that. You huvo trjpd to bo too olive, mid now you uro obliged to join tho genus cubbugu. " "I am certainly loss 111 than I was when I first onmu, ' ' sho said. "And I fool In it bettor frumo of mind altogether. I am learning a good deal lu sad Potorsliof . " "That is man) than I have do answered. "Well, perhaps teftoh Instead," gho •aid. "You havo. taught nawvorr.l things. Now, go on telling mo iibout the 1'ouuiry people. You lllro them I" ' "I lovo thorn," ho tsald Bimplj. "I know tilipm well, and llicy know mo.

She wore a naturally kind expression oil her old fn*e, but whes she saw who the gentleman was tho kindness positive Increased to kindness superlative. She first retired and called o\it: "Liza, Fritz, Liza, Trudchcn, come quickly I" Theu she come back ami cried: "Serf Allitson, what a surprise!" She eho»k his hand times without number, greeted Bernardino with motherly tenderness and interspersed all her remarks with frantic cries of "Liza, Frit*, Trudchen, make hastol" She become very hot and oxclted and gesticulated violently. All this time tho young woman snt knitting, but not looking up. She had been beautiful, but her face was worn now, mid her eyes had that vacant stare which betokened tho vacant mind. The mother, whispered to Robert Allitsen: "She notices nn one now. Sho sits there always waiting." Tears came Into tho kind old oyea. Robert Allitson wont and bent down to the young woman and hold out his hand, ''Catharina," ho said gently. She looked up then and saw him and recognized him. Then the sad face smiled a welcome. He sat near her and took her knitting in his hand, pretending to examine what she hod done, chatting to her quietly all tho time. Ho asked her what sho had been doing with herself since he had last seen her, and she said: ''Waiting. lam always waiting." He know that she referred to her lover, who hod been lost in an avalanche tho eve before their wedding morning. That was four years ago, but Catharina was still waiting. Allltsen remembered her as a bright young girl, singing in the Gast- httiis, waiting cheerfully on the guests, a bright, gracious presence. No one could cook trout as she could. Many a dish of trout had she served up for him. And now she sat In the sunshine knitting and waiting, scarcely over looking up. That was her life. "Catharina," he said a* he gave her back her knitting, "do you remember how you used to cook me the trout?" Another smile passed over her face. Yes, sho remembered. "Will you cook me some today?" She shook her head and returned to her knitting. Bernardino watched the Disagreeable Man with amazement. She could not have believed that his manner could bo so ton- dor and kindly. Tho old mother standing near her whispered: "Ho was always so good to us all. Wo love him, every one of us. When poor Catharina was betrothed flvu years ago, it was to Horr Allitsen wo first told tho good news. He has a wonderful way about him —just look at him with Catharina now. Sho has not noticed any one tor months, but sho knows him, you see." At that moment tho other members of the household came—Liza, Fritz and Trudchen—Liza, a maiden of 10, of tho homely Swiss type; Fritz, a handsome lad of 14, and Trudchen, just froe from school, with her school satchel swung on her back. There was no shyness in their greeting. Tho Disagreeable Man was evidently un old and much loved friend and inspired confidence, not awe. Trudchen fumbled in his coat pocket and found what she expected to flnd there—somo sweets—which sho immediately begun to oat, perfectly contented and self satisfied. Sho smiled and nodded at Robert Allitsen «6 though to reassure him that tho sweets were not bad and that sho wus enjoying thorn. "Liza will see to lunch," said the old mother. ''You shall hnvo somo mutton •outlets .and somo fcirollen. But boforo she goes she has something to toll you." "lam betrothed to Hans," Liza said, blushing. '' I always know you were fond of Hans,'' •aid the Disagreeable Man. "Ho U u good fellow, Liza, and I'm glad you lovo him. But haven't you just teased him I" ''That-was good for htm," Liza said brightly. "Is ho here today?" Robert Allitsen asked. Liza nodded. "Then I shall take your photographs," hecaid. While they had been speaking Catharina rose from her gout and passed Into tho house. Her mother followed her and watohod her go Into tho kitchen. "I should Ilko to cook tho forollon," she Mid very quietly. It was mouths since sho had dono anything in tho house. Tho old mother's 'heart beat with pleasure. "Cathnrlna, my best loved child I" she whlflporoxl, and nho gathered tho poor, suffering soul near to her. In about half un hour tho Disagreeable Man and Burnurdino sut down to their meal. Itobort Allltson had ordered u bottle of sossolla, and ho wits just pouring it out when Cutimrliiu brought iu the forol- lon. "Why, Cutunrluu," he said, "you don't menu you'vn oookod tlioiuf Then (buy will bo gooUl" Shu t>mlltxl and wc-mcd pleased and then wont our. of tho rooia.

And then ho told Liza that sho must go and change her dress and bo photographed now in tho way ho Wished. Sho catiio dow» again, looking BO times prettier In her working clothes. Now lie was lu his element. Ho arranged 1/lza and Hans on tho sledgo of timber, which had,then driven up, and made n, picturesque group of them all, Hans and Liza sitting side by side on the timber, the horses standing there BO patiently utter tholr long journey through tho forests, tho driver leaning against his sledge smoking his long chlua pipe. "That will bo something like a picture," he said to Bernardino when tho performance was over. "Now I am going for about a mile's walk. Will you come with me and see what I am going to photograph, or will you rest hero till I como backP" Sho chtw tho latter, and during his absence was shown tho treasures and possessions of a Swiss peasant's homo. She was taken to see tho cows In the stalls and had a lecture given her on the respective merits of S' v :.ecwltchen, a white cow, Kartoffelku .iuu, a dark brown one, and Bosclin, tho eauty of thorn all. Then sho looked at tho spinning wheel and watched the old hausfrau turn tho treadle. And so tho timo passed, Bernardino making good friends of them all. Catharina hod returned to her knitting and began working, and as boforo not noticing any ono. But Bernardino sat by her Bide, playing with tho cat, and after a time Catharina looked up at Bernardino's little thin face, and after some hesitation stroked it gently with her hand. "Frouloln is not strong," sho said tenderly. "If frauleln lived here, I should take care of her." That was a remnant of Catharina's past. She had always loved everything that wus oiling and weakly. Her hand rested on Bernardino's hand. Bernardino pressed It In kindly sympathy, thinking the while of tho girl's past happiness and present bereavement. ''Liza IB betrothed," she said as though to herself. • "They don't tell me, but I know. I was betrothed once." Sho went on knitting. And that was all she said of herself. Then, after a pause, she said: "Frauloln is betrothed?" Bernardino smiled and shook her head, and Catharina made no further Inquiries. But she looked up from hor work frqm tlmo to time and Boomed pleased that Bernardino still staid with hor. At last the old mother camo to say that tho coffee was ready, and Beruardlne followed her into tho parlor. She watched Bernardino drinking tho coffee and finally poured herself out a cup too. "This IB tho first time Herr Allltson has over brought a friend," she said. 'Ho has always been alone. Frauleiu is betrothed to Herr Allitson—Is that sof Ah, I am glad. Ho is so good and so kind." Bernardino stopped drinking her coffee. "Ko, I am not betrothed," sho said cheerily. "Wo are just friends, and not always that cither. Wo quarrel," "All lovers do that," persisted Frau Stelnhurt triumphantly. "Well, you nsk him yourself," said Bor nordinc, much amused. She had never looked upon.Robcrji Allltson In that light IJeforu. "Sec, there ho comes." Bernardino was not present at the court martial, but this was what occurred: While tho Disagreeable Man was paying tho reckoning Fmti Stolnhurt said lu her most motherly tones: "Frauluin Is » very dear young laity. Herr Allltson has mado a wise choice. Ho is betrothed at last." Tho Disagreeable Man stopped counting out tho money, , "Stupid old Frau Stolnhart!" ho "sold good nuturcdly. "People like myself don't get betrothed. Wo got buriud instead." l 'Nu, nu," iho answered. ''What a thing to sny, and so unllko you too! No, but tell me." "Well, I /un telling you tho truth," ho replied. "If you don't boltovo mo, ask fruuloin herself." "I huvo asked hor," said Fnui Stein- havt, "and sho told mo to ask you." The Disagreeable Man was much amused. Ho had never thought of Bernardino in that way. Ho puld tho bill and then did something which ruthor iistonlshod Frau Stoluhart and half convinced hor, lie took the bill to Bernardino, told her tho amount of hor share, and she repaid him then and thoro., Thoro was a twinkle In hor eye as she looked up ut him. Then tho composure of her features relaxed, and sho laughed. Ho laughed, too, but no comment wus inndo upon tho episode. Thou begun tho goodbyg und the preparations for tho return journey. Bernardino bout ovur Cuthwlua and klusocl hor sod f uoo. "Fraulelu will como uguinf" sho wnw- ;x'HHl eagerly. And Uoruurdino promised.

They settled money matters and were quits. Then ho helped her out of tho sledge, and ho stooped to pick up tho shawl sho dropped. ''Hero Is tho shawl you nro always dropping," ho said. "You're rather cold, aren't you? Hero, como to tho restaurant and havo somo brandy. Don't mako a fuss. I know what's tho right thing for you." Sho followed him to the restaurant, touched by his rough kindness. Ho himself took nothing, but ho paid for her brandy. That evening after tabla d'hote, or rather after ho had finished his dinner, ho rose to go to his room as usual. Ho generally wont off without a remark. But tonight he said: "Good night, and thank you for your companionship. It has been my birthday today, and I've quite enjoyed it." [CONTINUED.] CONGRESSIONAL GOSSIP Appropriation Bills Have First Place In the Senate. HEW PLAN FOE TAXING WHISKY. Contemplate* • Sliding Scale For Each Year In Bond Beyond Five Team, Minimum Tax to Be Ono Dollar—Senator Allen Denle* That Be Was Drank Last Tue»- dny—Manhalltown Gets the Carriages. WASHINGTON, July 18.—The only positive indication for the week in the senate is that tho consideration of the appropriation bills will be continued. There is a probability a day or two will bo given to tho Chinese treaty and a possibility the tariff conference report will call for attention in some shape. The taking up of the treaty will depend upon whether the managers of the appropriation bills will consent to yield the time, and the farther consideration of the tariff question will depend upon whether the conferees shall make their report and, incidentally, upon the character of tho report when made. Senator Gray, representing the administration, is very anxious to have the 'treaty disposed of, and he expressed the opinion that it will be possible to got it t^p Tuesday or Wednesday. When considered, it possibly will consume an entire day, if not wore tiim>, m executive session. Orenliniu Feel* Anxious. Secretary G-resham doas not conceal the concern ho feels with regard to the treaty and he has been reinforced during the past week in his efforts to secure early and favorable consideration by the presence nnd arguments of Minister Deutsey, who has visited the senate on two or/three different occasions in its behalf. If the tariff conference report shall reach tho senate it will undoubtedly evoke considerable discussion if it should attempt to lower the rates or change any of the material amendments of the •ennte. The Indian appropriation bill will k» taken up Tuesday and with thut out of the way, agricultural, District of Co luiubia, sim.lay civil and general deficiency bills will be considered probably in the order named. These will comp];it>? th<j lint. It is possible thoro will bo luoro or lees debate on all of these bills, but if other questions are not allowed to interfere, all uuiued can be disposed of during the week. There is not a sottl ed program for this week in tho house. Everything will bo subject to displacment in favor of the conference report on the tariff bill, when ono is agreed upon. The house managers, in CUHO a report is wade this week, two not disposed to allow too much timo to bo consumed by debate, especially if a disagreement is reported on tho vital differences between tho two houses. Though the time will be limited it is the desire of the houso managers to give sumuient opportunity for tho loading house members to pluco their poaition-i squarely boforo tho country.

DENIAL FROM SENATOR ALLEN. Junior Senator Fro in Nebraulm Sny» lie Was Not Drunk Tuesday.

Sunday light the condition of affairs looked Birious and the residents foi several miles around were called out to fight thu flames. Although they met some success in changing the conrce oi the fire, there is still great danger that many buildings will be destroyed. Among the buildings already burned are those on the form of Congressman J. J. Gardener including his fine country residence. Near Bridgeport tho dwell ing of Captuin Williams was also do- stoyed. A fierce fire is now sweeping through the dense woods iu the lower pan of Galloway township and is headed directly towards Hewitt town. U is im possible to form any estimate of the loss at present. The present losers, however, will bo the owners of the Umber lands, large sections of which have been swept by the flames. Uubalancoil Ul* Mliul. BUFFALO, July 16.—B. F.
