Stanton. In Chicago Times- Herald. THE TKA1N CANNOT WAIT She is just 18, with golden hair and gray eyes—large gray.eyes that laugh just as" well ns her red lips; her figure, though a little frail, makes one think wha.1 a pretty woman she will be soon. Her hruuls and arms are those of a child—is she not still a child? Clara left school but a fortnight ago. She is the beloved and only daughter of a rich milloi- in the neighborhood of Avesnes. Nothing is more poetical than a mill in the country. It does not disturb the silence of the air with its monotonous tic-tno; on the contrary, its noise, strong and regular, is like an accompaniment to the many other noises of the wind, and of the trees, and oC the birds. Clara was charmed with it all. During a few days after her arrival the whole house was upset, making and receiving calls, dinner parties, dancing parties, liivrn tennis; the days were- not long enough to hold their pleasures. Then all was quiet at the mill. In the orchard, which was large, the walks were spread over with sand, and the trees, loaded with fruit, afforded a beautiful shady grove. This was Clara's favorite nook; here she would go a.nd read poetry. She had been given the works of. Lamartino, beautifully bound. Xow, Lamartine, is a very tender poet, and Clara was still in her teens, nnd this was summer, nncl tho fragrance of the flowers and the murmur of the breeze acted on. her young mind; and through this .book she would dream of things she had never dreamed of before. One day her mother asked her if she remembered her cousin Albert. "Oh, yes, indeed," said she. -This answer came from her heart; she blushed and from her neck to her'brow sho felt that sort of electricity that is produced by a little shame and a grcnt pleasure. "Well," said her mother, "yon will sec him very soon." Clara was about to say: "Oh, how glad I am!" but she thought it more proper to say nothing. • • And why was she silent? . I will tell you. It was because she had resn.1 La- roartin*.. Why! does poetry make one false? Well, I don't know, but it speaks O f love—and what is love? "Well," said Clara, "I have not seen him for two years. I. suppose he is changed!" "Notmore than you," said bermother, casting n loving glance of admiration to her daughter; "you were a little girl when 'you went away—you are a young lady now." Clara ran oft to her beloved grove to hide the blushes on her cheeks and the beatings of her heart. She sat down, drew from her pocket her volume of poetry, but read not a line. Albert arrived a few days before he was expected,.but ehe was thinking of him. She always had roses on her cheeks, but these roses changed into peonies when she saw him, and her hands trembled. .He took hold of those hands and kissed her on both cheeks. He was a medical student who had.not yet 5n his. brain the least thought of any thin," scriousj.be had suddenly discovered in Himself a vocation for the beautiful' science of Aesculapius, that he might go to-'Paris'to spend a few •years of his life and waste a few thousands of his father's francs. "Ahl little cousin," said he, "you are pretty now. Why. 1 am afraid I shall fall in love with you." She looked at him, not knowing what to say. "Have you forgotten the goal times we had in this.garden, and over there in the woods?" . "Oh, no," said she. ; "And-when we would go rowing and' I would scare you by swfnging to acd fro in the boat to capsize you?" "Oh, no, 1 remember it all." "Then why don't you put your arms around my'neck and say pleasant things to me as you did then ?•" "1 don't know," she faltered.. Then he said to himself: "This cousin of mine must be a little simpleton."•-Well," said he, aloud, "and what is this book ?" . "Lamartine. It Is beautiful." "1 don't think so. I-think it stupid" — then seeing that, she was somewhat abashed, .he added;, "Why does it displease you..that'T -should not care for Lamartine?" "Because I love his poems."." "Well, if I read poetry I wont Alfred de Jvfusset. I.shall send, you his works when 1 get to •Paris.".'; : - :• ._ , . i '•' At"this moment'they heard a'quick 'and firm^step on the sandy walk; and a .young man cume upon them. ,,, "Excuse me, mademoiselle," said he, ''*|I have just learned that Albert is here 'and I have come to snake hands.", An old saying came to Clara's inineh "Two is company: three is a crowd." She wns too well hfthnvwl to =nv i it..«if she left the two young men together. When aloue she reflected that Albert s a very-nice cousin, undraightmn.ke very good husband; a,s for his friend —wefl,' he was a very good look ing man, and might be uTvery niee fellow—but what a, difference between tlie'-two. "Your cousin is acharmijiggirl."said Jack. '"Oh, yes, bu-tshe is only ii school girl. "Well, what else can she be? She is <ust out of school nn.d not a woman yet. Do you know what were tny thoughts 03 I looked at you both ? "How can I know?" "I was thinking that you would make a pretty couple." "Now, Jack, what harm have I ever done you that you should wan-t to chain me down ?" "Are you not 25?" "Is that old age?" "Would you give an old man. to your cousin, who will bo only 19 next year?" "In two years she will be 20—that will be bettor still. Then I will be a serious man and an M. D. Clara is a good match; 'our fortunates .are about equal. I think I might make a living in this country. Well, who knows what way happen one day? I have plenty of time to think of it." "I think your cousin deserves better than that, and you ought to.be in love with her." "What! Love at first sight! I do think Clara is pretty,- but—plenty of time—plenty of tirne!" Everybody seemed happy at the mill; even Clara, who listened with pleasure to the compliments of her cousin whenever he chanced to bo with her, and she thought him so witty that she quite forgot to show her own.witbeforeihim. In the meantime she was hoping that he would propose before going bock to Paris, but the last d*iy dawned, and he had not said the least word about marriage. She hoped till the last hour; the"n, till the last minute. Albert gave kisses a.11 around a.nd said to her: "I will come back next year. I will wri.te to you, a.nd send Mnsset's works, as I promised." Slie plucked up.courage and said to him: .. { "Is that all you wan-t to promise, Albert?" He understood what she meant, but would not promise more, and a.s his eyea rested on the clock he said: "Good-by, cousin; the train is here—it cannot wait-." The life o£ a student, especially that of a student who does not study, is just n« tiresome as any other. There comes a time when he gets tiretl of beer, wine and cigars. Albert was in one of his dark days: since morning he had felt cross, and would not even smoke; hifi pipe lay on the table with a pile of books and dusty papers.- His tobacco pouch reminded him of Clara—she had embroidered it for him during the week he had spent with her. Then he was also reminded that he had promised to write and send'Mussel's works; he felt badlv at these thoughts, and remorso made him go out to repair his forgetr fulness. There is a. knock at the door; tne servant brings up a letter to him; it Is from his mother. His drowsiness gives way as he reads the lines; he gets up in a passion, upsetting the table and everything upon it. Clara is to be married, and in a week, .too; and he is expected to attend the •wedding. • "Ajid whom docs she marry, I wonder?" exclaims he; "some common country lad, I suppose. No, it cannot be! I must go there .ind stop^it; she cannot be sacrificed in this way!" Two hours later lie. started with a va- liso'in one hand and a bundle under one arm; it was Mussel's works, Clara, met him at the garden gate; she was looking as fresh ae the flowers, and he, being conceited, thought that the happiness expressed on her face was due to his presence. She was less timid than last year and a little stouter, one could read her heart through her gray eyes and her smiles. • "Is what I hear true, Clara?" "Certainly. I was about to write to. you. I want you here f or the wedding-." "It is impossible!" "Quite possible and true." "With whom?" .' "With Jack, of course." -. • . "Ah, the scoundrel! There is nothing like a friend to betray one." , "Why, Albert, what a short memory, you have. Poor Jock would not speak of love before he was quite sure of your feelings toward me. 1 am very thankful that you set him at liberty to speak. I am so proud and happy at beingloved by such, a noble heart." Albert threw-his bundle on the table. "What is that?" : asked Clara, "Mussel's works. I had promised them to you." . . "You arc too late, cousin. Jack gave them to me long ago, as I was complaining of your forgctfulness." "Tell me, Clara—this is all a dream, is it not? You are not 501 ng to marry Jack?" She laughed. "And why not? . she said. .. • ,, • . . ' "Because 'I'love yon; because if >ou mean to marry Jack I start by the first train, and you shall never see me •again." ' She looked Jit Iho clock, as he had done the year before; and said, archly: "Then hurry up, cousin, for. the-train is here,', nnd ."'it cannot, wait.!'—X. 0.'

Description- of One Recently Invented by J. P. Holland Should It Prove il SUCCCKH, th« United Stilton Will Probably Purchase tho EicluHlve KlRht to the Use of tho Invention. While aei-ouauts, suoli as Cluinuto, I.nnglcy, Maxim and others, are working, together to solve t.lie mysteries of mechanical flight.anotilier body of scientists and engineers is trying to fathom the science of submarine navigation. Every yeax one or more submarine boats are laid out on paper, a.nd Homo of'tlienj are actually built. A few of the ninny models and "divine- boats" have been tested arid found practicable. The latest candidate for governmental favor is the submarine torpedo boat designed by J. P. Holland, who has been working cm submarine navigation for a quarter of a century. In 3oS7 he proved to the satisfaction of the navy department of the United Stiit us that'll is scheme was feasible, and to-day a boat is being- built after the Holland design. The vessel, says t,he Chicago Record, is cigar-shaped, and is 80 feet long. Its largest diameter is 11 feet, and it will have triple expansion engines capable of developing 3,800 horse powi-r. Steam, electricity and compressed air will be used in the boat. The compressed air will be for the use of the crew when the vessel is submerged and for the automobile torpedoes. The electric current will be used for power when the stm-ed steam is used up during a submerged period of navigation and for light. The smokestack is ol' the telescopic order. AVhen the vessel is above water, or "awash"—that is, partially submerged, the smokestack will be'"housed" and the opening hermetically sealed. •When the smokestack is completely housed the residual pressure of the steam will drivethe engines, for when water under pressure is heated it gives o^E steam for a considerable length of time. When this source of power gives out the boat will fall back on the storage latteries and electric motors. Wh«n the vessel is floating on the surface, with, its hull well above the water, it makes 13y, knots an hour; when HOLLAND SUBMARINE TORPEDO BOAT. it, is awash the speed will be !2>/ 2 knots on hour, and Gy 3 knots an hour when submerged. The boat will be propelled by triple expansion engines, working .triple screws. The submersion is made in two ivavs—by means of horizontal rudders, which will cause the'boat to dive when they are inclined, and also by Etirevvs, revolving in a horizontal plane at the bo\v and stern. _ • Resting on top of the smooth, eigar- slinpcd hull is an armored superstructure, which includes a. conning tower. From the.center of this superstructure rise 1 the smokestack and air tube, both of them telescopic.. The boat will be able to sink 40 feet below the surface of the water, and the specifications, require that when diving it shall .reach a level of 20 feet below the surface in one minute-, and when at rest it must be able to dive to that, depth vfiUiin 30 seconds. If the boat Amoving 'forward the inclination of tho horizontal rudders at the stern wiff cause it to dip and dive, just as the old "Peacemaker" did. • If a boat is floating motionless on the water it can be submerged by the horizontal screws at the bow and stern. If these screw-propellers are worked in one or the other'direction the vessel will sink, and can be maintained at any level or can be sent to the surface rapidly or slowly, as the commander desires. In actual practice the boat will approach the war ship it'inten'ds to blow out of the water with only its smokestack and conning tower above the water, until it gets sufficiently close for the man in the conning tower to see the ship. • . . ' Then the smokestack will be drawn into the vessel, the cover will be clapped on and sealed and the vessel will dive to the required depth. It has b'een found that a boat cannot well be steered from a conning tower under water. For this reason, the Holland boat is provided with a tube which will project up above the surface, of the water when the vessel is submerged. This tube will carry an inclined mirror, a prism which will reflect down into the-conning tower an imoge of everything within the range of the -p-lass, and thus the commander of tho vessel will be able to watch the war ship and guide his own boat. The boat will carry five automobile torpedoes; and provision is made'.for the escape of "the'crew in case of.ncci- •dent. The crew will be provided with buoyant diving suits or helmets, and a method of opening the hatch is devised, so that the wn con .escape in their diving suits if-the boat is injured BO thot.it will not rise to the surface.

Even the worm will turn, says a New York Herald reporter, who Relieves in preserving one's originality. The re- mark'was.drawn forth \jy something 1 he had just seen in. a Madison avenue cnr, into which entered a middle-aged and 'sicWy-look5ng-ma.ii. At a first glance the car seemed to be already full, but the anxious gaze of the newcomer detected the fact that a certain y.ourg- .ish lady \va-s really occupying space enough for three, passengers, or, as the reporter puts it, "had preempted a 15- cent reservation." The p;Ue gentleman sfepped in front of h«r a-nd! waiter!', but she did not ARRIVAL OF THE MARKET WOMAN, move. The reporter .soys that "her thoughts were .full of Easter." At all events, she made no sign of surrendering any part of her "reservation. Her next neighbor, however, was more considerate, or less deeply absorbed, and by means of a, little crowding in the other direction, cleared space enough so that the man could sit down "on a pinch,"- to borrow once more the reporter's, language. ' Still'the youngish lady'with the inflated sleeves kept her place, and the gentleman wearied'of his narrow quarters. Just then a woman who "had the breadth of the' Liberty statue" boarded the car, market-basket in hand. The gentleman might be in. feeble health, but his heart was chivalric. He rose at once,, and with gracious civility motioned the ;market woman into his place. ; She accepted the favor, and the gent'lemariVetired to the platform. The other" passengers looked alternately at him and at the young, lady whose side he.had juRt.le.ft. . ' : .' ;.. That eJegantly dresser] person, if we ore to' accept the reporter's version of the affaJr, turned red, white and blue, besides biting her lips, looking daggers, nnd performing several other fents little less wonderful. Then she'signaled a.s.top, and as she left the car those who .were staiHMng on.! the platform "heard a hissing sound] like the word 'brute.'"' . J : VICTORIA'S NEW GOAT.
