"I have seeu many stubborn Bourboiis, but he is the most obstinate of them all. \Y?? do not make as much impression on him as that little padlocked book." Her terrified eyes darted at him and aid their panfc. "Monsieur Abbe," she exclaimed piercingly, "tell him no woman will love hiui for throwing awaj a kingdom!" The priest began once more. "You will not resign your rights?" "No." "You will not exercise them?" "No." "If I postpone my departure from today until tomorrow or next week or next mouth, is there any possibility of your reconsidering this decision?" "Xo." "Monseigneur, must I leave you with this auswer?" "Your staying cannot alter, it, Monsieur Abbe." "You understand this euds all overtures from France?" "I understand/' "Is there nothing that you would ask?" "I would ask Mme. d'Angouleme to remember inc." He came forward like a courtier, lifted my hand to bis lips and kissed it. "With your permission, monseigueur. Abbe | I will now retire and ride slowly back along the river until you overtake me. I should like to have some time for solitary thought." "You have my permission, Monsieur Abbe." He bowed to Mme. de Ferrier, and so moving to the door be bowed again to me and took his leave. His horse's impatient start and his remonstrance as he mounted came plainly to our ears. The"regtilar beat of hoofs upon the sward followed, then an alternating tap. tap of horse's feet diminished down the trail. Eagle and I avoided looking at each other. A bird inquired through the door with inquisitive chirp nnd was away. Volcanoes and whirlwinds, fire and all force held themselves condensed and quiescent in the still room. I moved first, laying Marie Therese's message e?? the padlocked book. Standing with folded arms I faced Eagle, and, she as stonily faced me. It was Great archaeological value is a/tacbed to the discovery of an ancient city in a remote portion of Uw state of Pueblo. and in order to aaoertain.the exact import of the find the federal government has commissioned the subdirector of the National museum, F. Rodriguez. who is one of the foremost Mexican engineers. to visit the ruins and make investigations. says a special to the Philadelphia Press. Dr. Nicolas Leon, the archaeologist and ethnologist of tbe institution, accompanies him. Dr. Leon reports that the ruins have never been known to the world of science and that they are the most primitive that have been discovered In Mexico, and are, in fact, so ancient that it will require a great deal of time and At the of Wa*hlscto????xJilblt*d aesukof as* weighing 2 tow.

One may see at a glance that all tbecoel study to learn in what epoch they were built as well as by what people. Dr. j fields yet discovered are situated Leon has made the following state- j conveniently to the sea. ment in reference to the discoveries: "In a range of small hills that extends from north to south from the high neighboring mountains we find a very numerous series of pyramidal .constructions guarded by elaborate trenches and connected, for the purposes of communication, by wide avenues, which were set off at intervals by ( sloping acclivities, platforms and staircases. All the pyramids were found to be quadrangular and to have been built with especial reference to the cardinal points. Those important monuments were constructed entirely of rocks and sandstones cut and laid in juxtaposition. The surface dressing .of the pyramids is small stones worked into cubical forms of very ornamental appearance and laid close together. "As a rule, every four of the pyramids surround a court. All of them 1 s.rc so grouped that each and every on* of them guards the entrance to the courts. But if in any case the entrances are not protected, great walls with bases much wider than their summits reenforce the pyramids. These walls are of such sixes that their summits are really streets. "They are well paved with flat stones and have platforms, staircases and sloping acclivities like the avenues. On one of the highest of the platforms and at the bases of all the pyramids we found pieces of pottery which were certainly made before the time of Columbus and which were evidently the remains of a civilization relatively more advanced than that of the builders of the pyramids. "We found also many sculptured scenes in bas-relief of prehistoric times. Figures of human beings and animals in stone and iron were quite numerous. Domestic utensils of stone painted rose cglor were scattered over, the ground. "Stone knives and arrow heads of the obsidian epoch were . encountered in great abundance. Leagues of the mountainous country are covered with ruins." ELBOWS ON TEE TABLE. Habit of American AVonren Attributed to Ucnire to Dioplay Thtir Bracelets. 'I will give no reason. cline." "Is this the explanation that I shall make to Mme. d'Angouleme? Think of tbe tender sister who says. 'Louis,! you are recalled!' " "I do think of her. God bless her!" "Must I tell her that monseigaeur planted his feet like one of these wild cattle and wheeled and fled from tbe contemplation of a throne?" "You will dress it up in your own felicitous way, monsieur." "What do you wish me to say?" "That I decline. I have not pressed the embarrassing question of why take your inheritance." I kept iny eyes on Abbe Edfeworth.

She shuddered from bead to foot. Tun's a soul might ripple in passing from its body. "I nm not worth a kingdom!" her voice wailed through the room. I opened my arms and took her. Vol- tion we bestow on trifles when we are canoes and whirlwinds, fire and all at great issues. I answered her. :Tlie men of your house??? and the women of your house, madame ??? cannot dictate what kings of my house should do in this day." "Well as you appear to know him, madame," said Abbe Edgeworth. "and loyally as you urge him, your efforts are wasted." She next accused me. "You hesitate on account of the In dlans!" "If there were no Indians in America I should do just as I am doing." "Airmen," the abbe noted, "hold iu contempt a man who will not grasp power when he can." "Why should I grasp power? I havej it In myself. I am using it." "Using it to ruin yourself!" she cried. "Monseigneur!" The abbe rose. We stood eye to eye. "I was at the sffle of the king your father upon the scaffold.

She held my head between her hands. The tears streamed down her face. "Louis! You are a king! - You are a king!" THE BSD. Amusing epitaphs are not difficult to find, if one is seeking them. Toe Cheshire Republican cites a most singular one, which may be found on a monument in eastern Tennessee. "Sacred to the memory of John Smith, for 20 years senior partner of Jones Co." The names are not really Smith and Jones, but they will answer for the purposes of the story. '"I met Jones lately," says the narrator, "and he of the in- "Louts! You are a king!'' was not recalled long ago. I reserve to myself the privilege of declining without saying why 1 decline." "He must be made to change hi$ mind, monsieur!" Mme. de Ferrier exclaimed. "I am not a man that changes his mind every time the clock strikes." I took the padlo_cked book out of my loved France. Upon you he laid injunction to leave to God alone the punishment of regicides and to devote j your life to the welfare of all Frenchmen. Monselgneur, are you deaf to this 'call of sacred duty? The voice of your father from the -scaffold, in this hour when the fortunes of your house are lowest, bids you take your rightful place and rid your people of the usurper who grinds France and Europe into the blood stnined earth!" I wheeled and walked across tbe floor from Abbe Edgeworth and turned again and faced him. "Monsieur, yon have put a dart through me. If anything in the universe could move me from my position, whnt yon have said would do it. But my father's blood cries through me -today: 'Shall tbo. son of, Louis XVI. be., "Smith was a bachelor, without relatives," he said, "but he knew a tremendous lot of country people, and if any of them happened to see his j grave they might think that the old house had closed up and gone out of business.

What has he done? "The other day I asked .jirn to call round and give me his opinion of an article of mine on 'The Impending Crisis.' Well, he came, all right; but he brought a little thing of his own for me to hear, and, confound him. he wasted all ihs evening with his c; tistical trash. "???London Tit-BUs. If the social curriculum still 'includes such instructions as "Don't put your elbows on the table" and "When walking and standing kec-p the elbows i-loss to tbe side." few persons outside of the nursery think of paying any attention to them. An English woman stopping in New York drew attention 1o. this interesting, circumstance the other day, says the. Sun. of that city. "1 have -been very much surprised.'-' said she, "at. the \vay American wonwn sit with their elbows on the table on all occasions. "Everywhere they do it ??? in private houses and in restaurants, at the most formal breakfasts, luncheons, dinners, suppers. When one hand is in use, they lean on the -other elnowr and, whenever they get a chance, as between courses, both elbows are propped on the table and the hands clasped under the chin. "The other day I went past one of the Fifth avenue restaurants at the dinner hour, and at nearly everyone ot the 1 window tables was a woman leaning on her elbows. Why, even in some of the smartest photographs I have seenOf late women are posed with clasped hands, leaning their elbows on table in front of them. And yet probably those -very women were brought up never to put their elbows on the table." The American to whom the English woman was speaking admitted, with a laugh, .'that everything she said was true. "I find myself doing the same thing," the American confessed, "especially since I came into possession of a diamond pendant bracelet. ???The growth of the habit, I think, rlates from the time that the very slender chain bracelet, wound sometimes twice around the^arm and finished with i jeweled pendant, came into fashion. As a rule the weight of the pendant swings it toward the under part of the wrist: therefore it is seen to better advantage when the arm are raised. "Many of these ornaments are superb xnd possibly the owners think it would be an awful pily -not to show them at their best. I had no idea, though, that i the habit had become so general that a | stranger would notice H_" , "General!" echoed the English woman, "why. it seems to me an exception to find a New York woman who can ?et through a meal ???without planting her albo\vs on the table. Just look for yourself." They extend in a broken line ftosi ta* Canadian boundary to the Ootaatlsa river. One group Is situated on or near the sea, a little above the northern eat of Puget sound; another group lies t??tto east of Seattle and Tacoma, and still other fields are south of Puget sound. Altogether there are 17 fields whfcfc are contributing more or lees to the cost supplies. Some of them are entirely within the Puget sound basin, and otlten 1 ie between it and the foothills of the Cascades. It is fortunate for Washington, which is not overburdened with raB- roads, that her coal fields are o con-re*- iently situated fbr the water transportation of the fuel. It has been said that the coal off fa* Pacific coast is not of a superior quant?, and this is true. But Washington mil * a great deal of coal of the most kinds. There are some beds which are classed as anthracite, -but the fuel is not mined and is believed to be inferior; a large supply of lignite is mined, aad-agnst pd,ea4 of semfbituminous coal, which It excellent for locomotives and steamboat use. Nearly all of it is used forsteass making. A higher grade of coal is thr bituminous coking- coal, a part of which is turned into coke, while far larger quantities are used for steam and domestic purposes. Last year Washington produced the largest quantity of coal ever mine*; there. There was no very important production before 1886, but nearly every year since then the quantity mined*** increased. It amounted last year t* 2.690,789xshort tons. The larger part is consumed to kc state, and as time goes on and the population increases the home market wil require much greater supplies. The largest use to which coal is put is in the making of steam for locomotives, steamboats and stationary boilers. Wood is extensively used as fuel fit western Washington, but in the timber- less region of the eastern part of tfte state coal is used for all purposes, ui iachiefly supplied by the Rosly n distrirt. which furnishes nearly half the edil; mined and is conveniently situated la w- spect of the transportation facilities afforded by the railroads and shipping ??f Tacoma.. The great bulk of the coal shipped trasi Seattle and Tacoma goes to San Francisco, but a number of cargoesweresent in 1901 to Hawaii, as well as to Alaska* ports. Britis* Columbia competes with Washington in supplying Alaska, bwt that territory has coal of her own andfs likely in a few years to become an ex^ porter instead of an importer.- - California buys about one-third of tie roal produced; the railroads of Washington ??ad the adjoining states are ate* large purchasers, and about 300.000tone .a year are consumed by steamer* in tte foreign and domestic trade.
