If there was one thing in all her experience that Susanna Morton was heartily tired of it was the evident and continuous purpose of mankind to permit her to remain a spinster. True she tad been one so long It •would seem tliat she should have become accustomed to It; but by some strange fatality women—that is, the majority of women—never accept their lot in this Christian spirit which has won for them tho endearing 1 title of the gentler •ex. Anc! Susanna Jlorton had put up with it just as long- as she was going- ;o. Pour lenp years had passed her by, and she had submitted gracefully, but eaeh year less gracefully than she had done the year previously, and there were moments in the hist ol the four when she became almost desperate. Now that a fifth had come her mind was made up. She would take the reins of Cupid in her own hands and drive that harum-scarum little rascal in a manner to suit herself. She knew her good points, one of which was that she was thirty-five years old or thereabouts, and possessed a poise and balance no man who was looking- for a real sensible woman as a wife could afford to disregard. In addition to this she had— what men seldom disregard — a cora- fortablei fortune. It was this fortune thnt had been the real stumbling block.in tho matrimonial path of Susanna, and not any lack of attractive qualities in her 'possession, for she was not homely, nor was she anything but charming. The fortune, however, which was hers from her sixteenth birthday, had developed in her a fear that men sought her for her money and not for herself, and, never having fallen in love with any of her courtiers she did not find it difficult to resist advances, believing-, na she did, that men were mercenary us a rule, and that some day.the one man in ;i]J tho world for her would appear and claim her as his own. However, he did not appear, and he continued not to appear, until Susanna had reached on age and a firmness of character, to put it mildly, when her fortune would have to IK- at least doubled to make her as attractive as she was at twenty. This knowledge had eome to her gradually, but was none the less force- fill on that account, and she was determined not to let this leap year pass without-results of a lasting- character. Of the men :n her train there were perhaps half a dozen who were eligible, and any one of whom would have made a husband any woman could be proud of. But they were merely friends; not a man-jack of them had ever suggested such a thing- as matrimony to her, and possibly this wus why she liked them. So perverse is the nature of woman. Among the half dozen was one who found 1 the greatest favor in Susanna's eyes, the others taking their positions after him in regular gradation, a.nd this one Susanna selected as her victim for leap year, resolved to try all the others in case of failure in the first instance. Truly, Susanna was a desperate spinster. And oo less spry, for in the course of s first call in the new year she-began icr operations. But it was a dreadful task, acd the evening passed without a single step taken forward. The effort had been made, however, and courage always comes with effort. When he came again she was so wrought up over the work before her that her eyes sparkled and her cheeks glowed in rosy color. • He was ten. years older than she, and always assumed that hless-my-soul style affected.by elderly men. "Oh, thank you, Mr. Culver," she twitted, "I'm sure you only think RO. ; look just as I always look." Of course, Miss Susanna, only slight^ y more so." He smiled, but there was that in the tone which had the ring of insincerity, or nt least superficial and society sincerity, which is very nearly the same, thing, and which made Susanna tiesplss the flattery of men that BO far had meant to her no dissolution of the continuity of her splnstcrhood. She was good-natured about It, however, and let Mr.Culvcr go on with whatever lie had to say, for if there was any man who could make flattery any more palatable to her than any other man that man was Mr. Culver. But it was soon over, and when he had fixed himself comfortably in an easy chair with which he was familiar he seemed to have forgotten whether Susanna looked like a fright or a.falry, and began talking about all sorts of things, as people :do wno talk for the mere sake of talk- •ing. At all events, that's the way it presented itself to Susanna, and she felt thespiritof desperation slowly creeping over her. She took a long breath for en- couragcment, . and tentatively turned the subject of conversation upon the most recent .wedding which had occurred in their circle. "Who't a pair of fools they were and ore," said Mr. Culver, sententiously, "to marry on nothing but his salary, and that not big enough for two." "Hut they are happy," :trgued Susanna. "I suppose so," Mr. Culver unwillingly admitted; "it takes fools to be happy; wise people know too much." "Are you-wise?" questioned Susanna, nervously, for she felt that she was launching herself at this point upon an unknown Bea, • • "I'm old enough to be,," Mr. Culver frankly reaponded.-for.Mv: Culvsr's age was too well known to be denied, and too great to be-bid. under a bushel;. .. : "Isn't there--something -somewhere about the,old.fools bcingYthe biggest?" laughed .Susanna':.' , , . . : "But'rin-not'EooldasthatJyet." "Al!" 1 ' and-her eyes" twinkled. "I§ yours a case'of:' "- • < ' :'••• ' ':..••: '•'• Stnndl'nR with'reiuetalnt 'feet, 4 • Where ,the:»Uly. seasons meet?" '. Mr. Gvt)ver,a«sumed.a;mpre serious air, and there-was n Fmile-on.Waface when. he replied; there was rather a shadow of regret: "Yes, Miss Susannna," ho said, "1 do not stand reluctant, for I think if 1 had been more of u fool iu one regard 'I would have been less of u fool in another. That is to say, a man is a fool to waste his life selfishly as I have dor-.e." This .was the auspicious . moment Susanna had becu'seuking. She would now lead right up to the matter aud find a listener to her proposal. "Why don't you marry, Mr. Culver?" she n&kcd, with directness. "You are not too wise to consider-thc question, I hope." "Certainly not. Miss Susanna," he smiled. "I've been ^considering it for 20 years." "Then you oug-ht to stop considering- it ami pop it." Susanna'laughed and Mr. Culver nJso. "I hardly think I'll ever do that," he said, seriously. "I wouldn't know how to go about it, to make my case half presentable. I've given myself up, you know, as a bad job." ' "Some of these new women will, be charging down on you some of theso days, teaching you the newer doctrine that women have the right to say whether you have the right to do as you please with yourself. In other words, some one of them will capture you in spite of yourself," "Not much, they won't." asserted Mr. Culver, with a great show of courage. "If there is anything i don't want to marry it's a woman with foolish notions of that kind." Susanna's heart went down to her shoes on the instant. Here, was an insurmountable obstacle in her path, and with Mr. Culver holding to such an opinion, what good would :i proposal be from her, even if she should muster up courage enough to make it. The thought made her mute for a minute and in that minute a new scheme came, OLIO that had been thero before, too, but had gone wool gathering while' she was beating about the brush with the new woman idea, ' "I think myself they are horrid," she said, with an effort to swallow something that would not g-o dowa very easily. "But there is the leap year, privilege. All women, new and old, lan claim that, and you mustn't forget iJiat this is a leap year." "I had forgotten it," he said, mov- 'ing his chair into the far corner of the fireplace, but still not so far away that he was out of- the pleasant influence- of Sr.innna'3 nearness. He sat there for an instant making himself shiver with terror, and then he moved back, possibly a little nearer than before. "Forewarned is fore.nrmecl," shesuid; "and now -that I have told you of the dangers ahead I hope you will profit by my advice." "Oh, I'm not afraJd," he nsserted, ;n u pood voice, "I'm just waiting for t'aat sort of thing. The custom of tradition, whatever you may call it, is an ok!; fashioned one, and only an old-fashioned woman would tliink of it, and that is the kind I want. So none of them had better try it unless she mians business.!' ' Surely no finer opening could be presented to n. young- woman in her mood than this, and Susanna gave herself a shake nnd took another loug breath. The time hod come, arid she was not Die woman to lose so glorious an opportunity. "Mr. Culver," she began, in a nrm voice and with great earnestness, "I buve for a long- time been thinking you onght to marry end I have even gone so far as to seJect just such a. woman as I think would suit you, I have had two or .three consultations with her, and she is-willing that I-should present the mattei to you, because I know you so well, and you.will understand it better from me than if she should present it herself." When she was obout to proceed further with her remarks Mr. Culver showed-sings of real anxiety and-arose to his feet. "Mis.i Susitnrjo." he exclaimed, "don't say another word. • Really. I cannot listen to it." "But I must say it to you," she in- sistod, because, as it seemed to her, that was. t!ie proper way to conduct n successful courtship, oud.now that she had bog-mi it she most decidedly wished it to be <uif l .uessful. .,. . , "I tell you I .won't hear It. This is entirely unexpected; and I am sure notliinf; in my-conduct has ever war- ra-ntcd you ill broaching this subject to me." Mr. Culver was very evidently in earnest, and Susanna almost.chuckled to herself, for,this wns the very way young-.women acted under the circumstances in which Mr. Culver was placed. All it needed'now was o little more coaxing, nnd Susanna nerved herself for the final'pop.- "Perhaps you have not thought so," she said 'in her softest voice, "but to me there has ever been a desire to say to 3'ou what 1 am now saying-. Mr, Culver—John." and Susanna come very close to him, notwithstanding- she wtiu so nervous she hardly knew what to do."Hold on; Susanna,'-hdlfl on," he exclaimed. .' "Confound it!" (that shocked her, for she knew:no girl ever talked that way under such circumstances, however much she must Lave thought It).. "I don't want yon to be talking In any ot.her'worpan's interest. There is-only one woman in the world that I want, and—and—and—" Mr. Culver was getting nervous himself now and. Susanna gasped. • "And—oh,; Susanna." he said, desperately, "don't you know that woman .is you? You; Susanna. Don't you'know it is you?"

HOKSE IN A MANHOLE. Thousands of Chicago People Wit ness an Unusual Sight. Animal's Head and Vorelccru Roomie Abovi Qrounil, But It* Hind Foot 1'lay it Lively Tuttoo on the JEuiin of ToU'pboun I'IIICK. Thousands of people blockaded th< corners of Madison and Dearbon Bti-L'ets lit Chicago the other day to -wit ness a sight rarely seen in the city— the head and forelegs of a horse pro truding- from a manhole and the aaiiraa making occasional frantic but futile'ef forts to extriea.te himself. The horse belonged to A. C, McClurcr & Co., and •was being driven east 01 Madison street. Albert T.horsen was the driver. The horse was hitched to an ordinary delivery wagon. Passing Dearborn street ;it 11 o'clock immediately in front of a Madison sLL-cet g-rip car, Thorsen noticed that the cover of the manhole at the southeast intersection of the thoroughfare ha-J been removed. This manhole offer* access to the underground wires o tJie Chicago Telephone company. 'The cover hiid been removed by Ed Jansen who was cleaning out the manhole. Thorswi endeavored to pass the open ing nn its north side, believing- there vi'.-us plenty of room for his wagon between the manhole and the car tracks, und tjlinfc (Jie g-rip cor was not in dangerous proximity. In both of these-conclu- fiioiis, however, Thorsen was in error. The grip oar bumped the wagon, and the wagon shoved the horse. The latter made an effort to clear the m'mliole and failed. Its front feet passed the dangerous opening, but the rest of its body disappeared from sight. When Thorsen realized his danger he uttered a shout fraught with fear for his own safety, rather than as a warn ing to anybody else in danger; but it helped to save, the life, of Janscn, who jvas working inside the manhole. It notified him that something out of the ordinary was taking place above ground. Without- an instant's loss of time he backed into a tunnel eight or ten feet in length, having an outlet 'nt a manhole just around the corner on Dearborn street, in which his body was half hidden when the commotion above ground began. While he was thus engaged in seeking a place of safety the hind hoofs of the horse were playing a lively tattoo on the protruding ends of pipe containing DOWN THE MANHOLE. telephone wires, where Janseu had but a moment before been working. Other employes of the telephone company raised the cover of the Dearborn street manhole, and Janscn was quickly brouglit to the surface; not, however, until lie was several shades paler than when he entered the Madison street opening, and trembling with fright at his narrow escape. Immense crowds quickly gathered. Every window in the buildings on the four corners of these two busy streets was filled with sightseers, ami within f.ve minutes-there was a crowd so dense the poliuemen could do nothing with it. As rapidly as the policemen drove the people book from one side of thi manhole, the struggling hundreds on tl-.e other crowded to the front and interfered with all e-fforts to release the nnfortuiittte horse. Almost everybody within shouting- distance of-the scene of the accident had a suggestion to offer ns to how best to remove the iiorso from the .msinhole..nnd the suggestions wereulinost »s various as the suggesters were numerous.. . . ..

II ,...s brought down close to the horse nnd eis many men, as could grasp the pipe prepared for a lift, on which the} exerted all their strenjrt.li.

Practic ally the first experiment was dupli cated, a IC-foot ladder being substi uted for tlie iron pipe, but when tho adder bent and threatened to break ,his scheme was aJso abandoned. Then a piece of timber two by six- en or twelve feet long", wos strapped flatwise to the ladder and efforts made 0 liberate the horse resumed on thi basis. With the ladder .thus strengthened and the lifting power increased by hundreds of willing 1 hands for which tficre •was room on the ladder, the horse was ifted bodily from the manhole and aid out on the street: amid the cheers of the thousands of people- who had yntched the interesting process, whicr lad consumed almost an hour.
