It was not a quiet sunset, but It was beautiful. On the doorstep of one of the cottages along the shore sat Therese, praying that she miyht die. She sat there With her brown little hands clinched, her eyes'dry nnd flashing and -two little red spots burned on her cheeks. It had been hours since BUM had spoken to any one, and her mother had at last left oft coaxing and scolding and questioning. After all, she knew why Thorese sat there clinching her little hands. She had told her that it would be so, but Therese would not listen then. The evening meal was sot, and presently the father came. Therese moved enough to lot him in nt the door, but sh^ did not speak. Ho gave her an Inquiring look but. wont on Uito tho house. "What ails tho child?" he asked of the. mother, as she Hew about, adding the finishing touches (o the supper table. and that kept htm from thinking of anything else verjt seriously. It was quite new to him to know that he was handsome. To be sure. Thefc- so had told Win so plenty of times, but he had only laughed and pinched her plump arm, pleased, not with himself, but with her for saying it. His curly hair had been a cause of annoyance to him. But when Eleanor, not directly but by inference, which is the surer way. told him about his eyes and his hair and his figure, ho first thought it over and then looked in the glass to sen*. After that he began to neglect Therese and patron!'/!!) her. But Thorese was an independent little thing and she would not stand that. So they had their puarrel and Otto said that lie was not coming to see her any more until she was sorry thiiit she had talked so to him. He meant fo punish her. It was only the. other side of his patronizing. Tho- roso said very well, and fhait was the reason she sat on tho doorstep wishing she could die. Perhaps the worst thing that he did was when he told Meaner about all this. She listened to him just a little before the sun set all that could be seen of tho great vessel was a piece of broken spar held up gaunt aiid naked through the dashing spray and waves. Before Otto reached tho shore the lifesavlng crow had gathered on the shore and they drew his little craft tip through thd dangerous breakers. Then they sent out the big lifeboat and tho res! of Hie townspeople aud then the crew were taken off. Eleanor fainted before they reached the shore, and Thorese had her taken to the little cottage) on tho shore. There she cared for her as tenderly as a sister would; all the. jealousy was gone. Eleanor was in a condition that, excited pity rather 'than any less gentle cmo- tlo'i!. That evening Therese and! Otto walk- ell together down to tho chair on the shore. The wind was still blowing furiously, and (lie waves were, booming on tho shore, but. the lovers, for they were lovers again, did not mind those things. "Oh. it froze tho blood in my veins.' 1 said Otto, "when I saw the! storm coming, and feared that T would not. reach you in time.'! "But it was God's storm," answered started, and then she laughed and pro- Thereso, smiling, "for It sent you back tended to give him good advice, while'to me."—J. T.

He follows her around like a little dog. Thoreso is u fool to care." "Hush!" said tho father. "Have you no heart'/" Then he went out to where the daughter was sitting on the doorstep. 'Come, little maid," he said, "let us walk to the chair aud back before we havo our supper." The chair was a great bowlder that stood out away down the shore near the water, rudely fashioned, during tho centuries that It had stood there, into tho shape of a huge settee. • Therese sat very still for a moment after the father spoke, but he put his big hand gently on her arm and presently she rose to go with him, mutely comforted. "Where are you going?" called the mother after them. "Tho supper is ready and waiting." "Then it: will havo to wait," called back the father. "Come, little maid." They walked down the shore in sil- enco until they readied the c'lair. Tlie- reso climbed up into her favorite place and her father stood by her resting his gray head on her knee. ' She stroked his thin locks back from his temples gently. She was) sorry that she had prayed that she might die. She had almost: forgotten him. "Fine ladies are tickle," he said; "he may come back." ' It was the lirst. time they had alluded to her trouble and lie did not look at her, uncertain how she would take It. He felt that, the words wore weak ones, but he wanted to comfort her and he could not think of anything else to say. Tnereso stopped stroking his hair and ho felt her little hand tremble as it rested on his head. Then she laughed a hard little laugh and began to finger the gray looks ar-jain. "I do not want him that way," she <3aid. "If be comes at all he must leave! cumstancos he would havo been one strict business. This is due in a groat her for me.

One of the interesting features in connection witli Mr. Astor's descent on London is that outside a little charmed circle his name is absolutely unknown* In no other city In the world could a man have taken the position he has in London and yet be unknown to the masses. Beyond a few curt paragraphs tho press have taken no notice of him. and this in tho face of his having bought: one of the oldest, and best known of London papers and taken an active part In its management. This is only example of the magnificent indiffronco of London to every one and every tiling. It is. however, only fair to Mr. Astor to say thait not only does ho not court notoriety, but he ab- solutly shuns It. HERE'S A SPARKLER! Crown .Towels Arc Not in It with tho .Tagorfonstefa.

In consequence of evidence that I had obtained as to the existence of a dwarf race in Spain, writes R. G. Hallburton In London Nature, I wrote to Mi 1 . McPhersou, our consul at. Barcelona, and inclose his reply. There have ong been rumors of the survival of a 'warf or a prehistoric race existing in parts of Spain, but careful inquiries at Madrid failed to supply any definite information on the subject. Last summer, on reading over an old number of Kosmos (Paris, 1887), I found a brief paragraph referring to a pigmy race having been found In the province of Gerone, Spain, who had slightly Mongolian eyes, yellow, broad, square faces, height from 1.10 meters to 1.15 meters, and rod hair. An Austrian gentleman recently told me he had seen in the market place at Salamanca some very undersized peasants, with broad faces and mahogany colored hair. You will see that these accounts all agree substantially, and that these dwarfs and tlioso of Africa are precisely similar. I have got a good deal of information from an old Spanish woman who belongs to a half-brood nano family and who says there are in such families such nauos (or "enanos") who have red tufts of wool and are as small as or- d.'nary small boys. But these tufts of wool are peculiarly characteristic of dwarf races nearly everywhere. I shall write more fully as to my inquiries among the half-breed nanos, but they are of very secondary interest now that we can find pure racial nanos within easy reach. It is most fortunate that they live in the valley of Klbus and the Col do Tosas, within a little more than a half day's journey from Toulouse. Some health seekers or tourists In the south of France may perhaps feel inclined to pay a visit to these little people.
