THE tJPJPEU DBS MniXttS. AUi"ONA,IOWA, FfcimttAliY I HER BLINDNESS. The (lining car was in a. shimmer of light, says O. Melville Upton in Kate Isolds Washington. Tho dead white of heavy linen, the opalescent, glint of glassware, niul tho quiet gleam of silver trembled together in Ihe swift motion of tho train. Miss Baxter, who had but recently left her berth, dropped into n seat, loaned back a moment, dazed by tills lavish waste of color. Meanwhile tho insistent sunlight took liberties with the doll brown of her severely brushed hair, run burning fingers through it ntid edged It. willi coquoMlsli gold, Then fiho hastened lo draw the cm-tain and throw the blno square of shade ovdr Jior comer of (he futile, sighing as sin; settled down again, and nil the painful scene of the evening before came surging back. She fell; halt' a notion to lay her head on the table and cry ontright. Mho glanced down Instead and lingered her ring—his ring—while, her glasses grew misty. She wondered whether she should have kept the ring, now no longer meant: anything. The question was still undecided when she pnllr ed herself together with it,' visible tremor :md turned to tile menu curd. Dining car breakfasts are not timed to wait on the settlement of subtleties In ethics, particularly after the steward luw made (he "lost; cull." In the few minutes Miss Baxter had been in the car she had not noticed ]ier companions. As she raised her head she ,wns startled to see a, familiar face dimly taking shape n cross the table. Site had removed her glasses mid Avas about to press her handkerchief to her eyes, but: she put: them, resolutely on again and looked fixedly •through their misty crystals. "Mr. Woodsun, where did you come from?" she demanded at length, as his well known features gradually took definite shape before her. Woodson did not: speak at once. Ho was noticing how her hair would tumble down In wayward ringlets in spite of her efforts to keep it staidly back, and how her cheeks persisted in dimpling, however resolutely sho closed her lips together. Then he said: "From. \ew York of course. Does my dress suit look as though I'd boarded the train in these rural precincts? I thought: you knew tho cut better." "Do you mean to say that you've been on this train all this while—after —after, last: night?" Miss Baxter asked with slightly heightened color. "Guessed It tho llrst time," Woodson exclaimed, brightening. "I tell you, Grace, you should Have gone into the law Instead of art. You'd have been great oh cross examination." "Never mind, Mr. Woodson; you seem to forget Hint I prefer to make my ojwn career—AVO'VO discussed Hint before, however. And so you've been on tills tralhi ever sinco I have?" she concluded reflectively. "A little longer, In fact. T made a mistake mid got here half tin hour early —read the time table backward—hence : theso clothes. But now, see here, j small girl," Woodson went on with i grunted out now and then: "Put your color pure. Make her jump." So they painted from morning till night, kcuping two or three studios under Avay at once—putting in blues whom AVoodson saw greens, and purples where ho saw nothing but nondescript; sand., and doing all the inexplicable tilings that should be done according to the gospel of the hmiinists. Woodson sat. by and clinlTod. Jlr couldn't paint. Ho, wouldn't smoke, lie pan-led Grace's occasional inquiring glances by oxplat'iiing that, he Avas negotiating to go into 'the cattle business— si man was going to bring him n herd on trial. Meanwhile ho arrayed hfs shapely figure in coAvboyish top boots, ^ blue shirt, and slouch hat, Avliich became him immensely, and malic a sinister'impres- sioii among tlie blazers and tennis suits of summering Manltou. Grace Avas absorbed and salisiioil. "Olio day an idea si ruck.him. "Grace,"' said he, "1 found a lil.tlo bit. doAvn hero the oilier day that. I'd like to have you sketch—to .send home, you know. You'll do it, won't yon?" "Why, of coui'se. I'll speak to Mr. Fleming." "Oh, hang Mr. Fleming." Woodsou bn>ko in. "Fleming's all right In his Avay, l)iit I Avant you—your slcetch, you know." Tho placo Avas quite a distanrjo aAvay, over the mesa. .They set ont for it tho next day. "Hero it is," AA r oodson exclaimed, after quite a tramp, pointing over the burning plain to where a row of coT- tonwoods Averc hanked against the sky, tremulous In the vibrant air. "There, do that; call It 'A Hundred in the Shade,' or something like that." "It doesn't seem to compose very well," Grace murmured, holding tho tips of her fingers together and inclosing the picture in a rosy frame through Avhicli she gazed, half shutting her eyes in truly artistic intentncss. "AA r oll, never mind that; get the character of it. You IUIOAV Fleming says tho character's the tiling. That's what 1 Avant— the character—tlie true character of this beastly country." So Grace donned her big blue aproiv and sot to AA r ork AviUi her biggest brushes. But somehOAv she had trouble. The quality of that sky, binning AviUi light mid yet deep in hue, did not sewn to reside in cobalt, however fresh from tho tube. Tliw value of the stretch of plain, tremulous under the flaring heavens, disturbed hor, too, and Avhen sho came to put in the airy AA r all of cotton- Avoods along the horizon the AA'hole thing ended in a painty muddle. "Oh, I can't do anything to-day!" Grace exclaimed petulantly, Aviping her troubled broAV AA-ith the back ;of her hand and IcaAing a streak of blue along hor forehead that intensified hor puzzled look. "Why don't you put those trees in green?"

The recent; .plienominal advance in hogs and provisions A^US. primarily due t:o.-legitimate, causes, though board of trade manipulation has been largely responsible fer the wild fluctuations hi hog product. Even the strongest opponents of the AVashburn anti-option bill would hardly make the claim that tho price of pork Avould move up 75 cents barrel in a single day through logitl- uiae causes, yet this is what' has occurred more .tihau once within the last few weeks. The speculator in farm products hiis long had an eye on the pi'o- i-isi"n market, and sliroAvd men like P. D. Armour, Charles AVright, and tho udahys have loaded up heavily with pork,..,while N., K. Fail-bank has been mprovhig tho time by accumulating big. holdings of lard. This has been gong, on for along time, and those men iavo falcon the cream of the profits, while the fanner has secured fair returns by tho great jumps in prices for logs. On. Saturday, Jan. 7, pork for Afay delivery sold on the board of .trade it $18.75 ti barrel, an advance of $2.35 n a single week. Lard and ribs shoAved similar artA'ances, Avhile choice heavy logs rose 85 cents per 100 pounds, soling at $7.85. The tAvo 111011 Avho have iiiido the most money by tho boom In provisions arc .Tolm Cudahy and Charles Wright. , Pork which AA'right; sold last veek, netted him $0 a ban-el profit, if lot more. "Since the November deal u ribs failed," said a prominent opera-or on the board, "Charlie AVright, Cudihy, and Iloloson have, cleared nearly 2,000,000 in mess pork." Theso men lotieod the falling off in hog rqceipts it the stock yards here and at other lacking points at that time, and quiet- y began buying pork. They have lought all they could got from $13.00 ip and as a result, the market. Avas cor- lored as they-controlled the cash pro- luct, N. K. Fail-bank has carried on similar operation in lard and is cred- t'ed Avith having cleared $500,000. Those liree men have actually boon coutroll- ng tlie prices of pork, lai-d and short Ib aides in the markets of tho Avorld. A1ia,t coui'se the market Avill pursue in he future is a difficult thing to predict, jiuhihy and AVright have disposed of uormoiis quantities of pork, and Wright: Saturday to have sold his On some days AVright sold gestive of comfort.
