THEl ...UPPKfi DES MOlKE8t ALGOtt &, IOWA JAHtTARf Shell Wilden. CHAPTER VII. One the following morning, as Shell is carefully folding in tissue-paper the superfluous tea-spoons brought into use on the previous evening, Ruby once more bursts in upon her solitude. "I have brought over one of Meg's dresses as a guide; and I think this merino ought to make up prettily," Bhe says, unfolding a parcel which she carries, and displaying with some triumph a tiny cotton frock and a piece of some light blue material. Shell pauses in the act of rubbing an imaginary spot from one o£ .the spoons and stares at the articles produced with wondering eyes. "What are you talking about?" she asks, with bewildered stress on the word "are." "Why, I am going to make a dress for poor little Meg," explains Ruby in a rather impatient and injured tone. "You must have noticed how badly the poor child's things fit her?" Shell turns perfectly crimson. "You can't mean what you say, Ruby?" she cries in a voice of horror. "You have surely not been offering to make clothes for Robert Champley's children?" "Why not?" demands Ruby, with a faint flush. "I consider it only a common act of charity to help the poor man when he is in such dire need of help." "Oh, then, he asked you to see about It?" queries Shell, looking relieved. "Well, not exactly. We were talk- Ing about the children, and I remarked that the nurse seemed to have no Idea how to dress them properly. Of course he objected to my taking any trouble in the matter, but I could see that he was distressed by what I told him. So this morning I went over and caught the nurse just about to cut out another monstrosity, so I just marched off her stuff, and one of Meg's dresses for a pattern." "Wasn't the nurse a trifle surprised? 1 .' asks Shell, in dry sarcastic tone. "She did seem a little put out," ad- mils Ruby, with a quick flush. "I ehall warn Robert Champley against that woman. I think he must be mis- takwi in her—she has most shocking manners." "Do you set up as being a judge of manners?" asks Shell, still sneering. "I set up for knowing when people are rude and disagreeable," answers Ruby shortly. Shell, having carefully disposed of Iher last spoon, is turningly silently from the room, when Ruby calls her back. "Where are you going?" she asks crossly. "I am going to lock up the silver," replies Shell, without retracing her steps. "When you have done that I wish you would help me to cut out Meg's dress—you are so much more used to that kind of thing than I am," says Ruby, gazing despondently at the little dress, which she has been turning inside out to see how it is fashioned. "I am really very sorry," answers Shell coldly; "but I can't possibly help you. I never cut out a child's dress in' my life." "Nonsense—dpn't be so cross—you must do it for me!" cries Ruby, beginning to look alarmed. "Of course I quite reckoned on you, or I should never have undertaken such a task." "I am very sorry," repeats Shell, in a hard, unfeeling voice; "but I don't in the least understand children's things. I should advise you to send for patterns or put it out—you will get no help from me." And then she hurries from the room, nearly upsetting Violet, whom she meets in the passage. "Would you believe it, Vi?—that wretch of a Shell has turned sulky," grumbles Ruby, as her cousin enters the room. "She vows she won't help me with Meg's dress, or even cut it out. Isn't it disagreeable of her?" "What on earth will you do? I know you can't manage it yourself," laughs Violet—instead of sympathizing she seems only amused at her cousin's dilemma. "I am sure I don't know. Do you think you could cut one out?" asks Ruby hopelessly. Violet turns the little dress all round about, then holds it out at arm's length by both sleeves. "Not if hanging were the alternative," ehe laughs; "it is quite beyond me." But for Ruby it is no laughing matter—tears of mortification and vexation force themselves into her eyes. "Bah! Don't take it to heart," cries Violet lightly—"we'll send tor some patterns, and then make an ostentatious show of cutting it out in Shell's presence. She won't be able to withstand that, I know, for she hates to see good stuff wasted." And Violet's ruse proves successful. For when, a few days later, having obtained some patterns from London, Ruby' deliberately begins to arrange them the wrong way of the stuff, Shell impatiently comes to the rescue, and, having once taken possession of the scissors, wields them to the end. Having cut out the dress, she soon decides to make It; she Is a good workwoman, an( j never before has such » dainty, enticing bit of work come in her way. She feels perfectly safe in her undertaking. Ruby is scarcely likely to blazon forth her own incompetence. One afternoon, as she sits at the open window smiling over her work, Robert Champley comes sauntering thoughtfully up the short avenue of the Wilderness. Suddenly Shell, all unconscious of his close proximity, breaks into song. It is a bright, cheery little ditty that bursts from her lips, and her unseen listener pauses amidst the shrubs and waits for the end. Leaning idly against a strong young lilac, he not only listens to the words with an amused smile, but watches the busy needle flashing in and out of her work. She makes a vivid picture seen between the breaks of greenery, .with her brilliant hair, snow-white skin, and the patch of blue on her lap. This is the second time he has come upon Shell unawares, and somehow he takes keen delight in so surprising her—her quick change of manner when she is discovered, although he cannot understand it, amuses him. "A very good song, and very well sung! Bravo, Miss Shell—and please forgive me for listening!" he says, stepping up to the window hat in hand, when the last note has died away. "Oh!" cries Shell, becoming furiously red; and then she throws her work upon the floor and conceals it with her dress. The sudden disappearance of the patch of blue attracts his attention far more than if she had left it on her knee, and a somewhat contemptuous look steals into his lyes as he comes to the conclusion that Shell is ashamed of being caught dressmaking. It sets him into a teasing mood. "Miss Shell, i£ you ever get an offer of jewelry, I advise you to choose tur- quols," he says, with his keen eyes fixed steadily upon the girl's burning cheeks. "Turquois—why? I am not going to get any jewelry!" stammers Shell, too confused and surprised to find a ready answer. "Because pale blue suits you to perfection," answers Mr. Champley with a meaning nod; and then, intensely amused at her bewildered look, he proceeds on his way. "Could he have seen my work?" muses Shell, as she withdraws it from its hiding place and carefully shakes out the delicate lace trimming, which has become a little crushed from her summary treatment. "I don't imagine he could—and yet what made him talk about pale blue?" In the meantime Mr. Champley has proceeded round to the hall door, and been shown by the trim housemaid into the cool and airy drawing-room, where he finds Violet Flower buried in the depths of a low, cozy chair and engrossed with a novel. ".Tell Miss Wilden that Mr. Champley is here," she says to the maid, as she half rises from her chair and stretches out a lazy white hand in greeting. "Pray don't trouble to rise," laughs Robert, as he hastens to her side. "You looked so exquisitely happy when I came in that I should be sorry to disturb you." "I am always happy when I am doing nothing," answers Violet naively. "This hot weather is so frightfiully enervating that no one in the house has a spark of energy left excepting Shell." "You are not altogether lazy—you were reading," says Mr. Champley politely. "Yes—I have just life enough left to take in ideas as they are put before me," responds Vi, with a lazy little yawn, "though I find it a great exertion holding up a book." "You should get one of those wonderful literary machines which one sees advertised," laughs Robert Champley, turning to greet Ruby, who has just entered the room. "I came over, Mies Wilden, expressly to thank you for all your kindness to my children," he begins in a formal tone &R he reseats himself. "Oh, please don't mention it!" answers Ruby, casting down her eyes. "I assure you their coming over so frequently has been a great pleasure to me." • "It is very good of you to say so," returns Robert, in a tone which does not convey any great amount of belief in her statement; "and I intend to send over the little ones tomorrow morning to thank you themselves." "I am sure I feel thanked more than enough already," murmurs Ruby. "I have been fortunate enough to secure very comfortable rooms in a farm house on Oakmoor," pursues Robert Champley, with his eyes fixed persistently upon the carpet. "The air seems pure and bracing, and I hope that a couple of months spent there will benefit them wonderfully." CHAPTER VIII. "Are you going with them?" asks Ruby sweetly. "Yes—oh, yes!" assents the gentleman with gu&to. He cannot conceal his feeling of delight at the coming change; Indeed, of late Ruby's ioter- ference respecting his chlldrsa feftS fed* Come almost unbearable—and changp which takes him from her Immediate neighborhood cannot fail to Vie greeted with enthusiasm. "It seems such a pity to leave Champley House just when the flowers are so beautiful," sighs Ruby sentimentally. "I will tell the gardener to send over a basketful twice a week," returns Robert quickly. "Thanks; you are too—too kind," gushes Ruby; whilst VI, leaning back in her chair, smiles lazily at the little comedy being enacted before her. "Oakmoor," muses Ruby aloud, after a short pause. "It sounds so rural and nice, only just a little vague. What part of Oakmoor are you going to?" "Our farm house is about a quarter of a mile from the village cf Oakford.'* "Oakford—Oakford?" repeats Ruby. "I suppose It is a very healthy spot?" "I should think so. Oakford stands nearly eight hundred feet above the sea, and there Is remarkably good fishing in the neighborhood." "Oh, how I wish I could induce mamma to go there for a time—I am sure the change would do her good!" sighs Ruby. "I am really afraid you wouldn't like it," cries Robert, looking alarmed. "There Is only the most prlm'.tlvs accommodations to be had, and—and ladies are not used to roughing It." "That Is just like you—always BO thoughtful," says Ruby in rather an absent tone; "but I don't thln'k we should mind roughing it a little, since the air is so invigorating." "I know I should mind!" interposes Violet quickly. "I hate invigorating air—it gives one no excuse for being lazy; as for out-of-the-way places, I abominate them—no society, no library, perhaps even no piano!" "I don't imagine that there IB any hope of our going," says Ruby, looking blankly at her cousin. "There is no need to regret that fact—you would be tired of the place in less than a week," laughs Robert confidentially; "as for Ted and me, it is otherwise—we shall have our fishing." "Yes, of course. Well, I am suve I wish you may enjoy H," says Ruby, trying to look in earnest; and then, when their visittor has taken his departure, she falls into a meditative mood, from which Vi's bantering remarks are powerless to rouse her. On the following morning Bob and Meg arrive with the nurse in their little donkey-trap, looking very important and well pleased with themselves. "Please, Miss Wilden, we have come to wish you good-by; and please take this with our love," says Bob, striding first into the room and repeating the words that have been drilled into him with a slight frown. "How handsome—how lovely! Oh, how kind!" she cries; then, unfolding a small scrap of paper contained In the case, she reads the somewhat stiffly-worded note enclosed: "Dear Miss Wilden.—Please accept the watch from Rob and Meg as a small token of their regard and gratitude. Yours truly, "ROBERT CHAMPLEY." Whilst Mrs. Wilden and Violet are admiring the watch, and Ruby is perusing the note with a feeling of disappointment, notwithstanding the costliness of her present, Meg makes her way to Shell, and, thrusting a parcel into her lap, cries triumphantly— "Dat is for oo, dear Sell!" "Dear Sell" looks anything but delighted at the information. "Nonsense, Meg—you have made a mistake!" she says, so coldly that Meg begins to pout her under lip preparatory to a cry. "Me haven't!" she says stoutly. Dat is for oo—i;a said so." Hearing that her parcel is of no Intrinsic valua, Shell condescends to open it. Hr.ving done so, a handsomely bound copy of Tennyson's poems lies exposed to view. (To be Continued.)

MANUFACTURERS TO MEET* National AMoetatlon Convention Will B* B«td »t Cincinnati. Cincinnati, Jan. 21.—Representative merchants and manufacturers are already arriving In Cincinnati In anticipation of the opening ne*t Tuesday of the annual convention of the National Association of Manufacturers. "Washington, Jan. 23.—The proceed- ,ngs in the house vrere enlivened yes- ;erday by a -wordy duel between Mr. Srosvenor of Ohio and Mr. Lewis, the member from Washington. During the debate on a private bill to refer to the court of claims the claim of ramp & Sons, the Philadelphia shipbuilders, for damages from the government for delays incident to tho building of the warships New York, Massachusetts, Indiana and Columbia, due to the failure of the government to deliver armor plate and other materials for these ships on time, Mr. Lewis made the bill the text for a general attack on army and navy contractors, whom he charged with being traitors for taking advantage of the necessities of the government in time of stress. Mr. Simpson, the Kansas populist, followed along the same lines, and Mr. Grosvenor undertook to rebuke them both. Mr. Lewis, in his reply, made a witty speech, ridiculing the Ohioan for his alleged pretensions. Mr. Gros- yenor did not deign to make an extensive rejoinder, though he displayed documents and intimated that he had plenty of reserve ammunition in store jfor Mr. Lewis. The Cramp bill was bdged out of tho way after the flow of oratory ceased. Earlier in the day the postofflce appropriation bill was fit-il- ly passed. , Speaker Reed put an end to the speculation regarding the chairmanship of 'the ways and means committee by appointing Mr. Payne (rep.) of New York to the vacancy caused by the death of Mr. Dingley. This carries with it the floor leadership of the majority. At the same time he filled the vacancies in the minority representation on ways and means caused by the retirement of Mr. McMillin by appointing Mr. Richardson of Tennessee i~ both places. Mr. Crumpacker of Indiana was appointed on census. An arrangement was made for the consideration of the army reorganization bill beginning next Tuesday. Fifteen hours are to be allowed for general debate, exclusive of night sessions Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. A night session was held tonight for pension legislation, and he house then adjourned over until Monday. WILL PLEAD AY1TU FILIPINOS. THEODORE C. SEARCH. President. Since its organization four years ago the association has rapidly increased in membership and influence, and by systematically pushing American goods in foreign markets it has benefited the country by many millions of dollars. The most interesting feature of the coming convention will naturally be the views and opinions expressed by men of weight and standing in the business world concerning the commercial problems which have followed in the wake of the recent war with Spain. Should President McKinley find It possible to attend the gathering he will be asked to address a mass meet- Ing of worklngmen in Music Hall Wednesday night. The local members have subscribed liberally toward the reception fund, and the delegates will be entertained in princely style.

H. T. SHADB. MEN ARE NOT THE MOTIVE. Women Do Not Don Their Prettiest Frocks to Win MiiBculliio Smiles. There is a fallacy—confined, though, to the masculine half of society—and that is that women dress for men. Of course all women know better than that and laugh at it in their sleeves as the most ridiculous of ideas. Most of. them would like, though, to let men go on thinking 130, but I don't care, BO I'm going to tell, says a woman in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. I think any creature who belongs to such a stupid sex ought not to be allowed—if there is any way of enlightening him—to go on thinking that any woman would throw away time and material to dress for him. Let me tell you, please, what I heard once. It was this: A woman of my acquaintance was clothed in a new and most beautiful dinner suit, which had cost hundreds of dollars. She wore it for the first time with an air of a queen—all, me, who couldn't have worn it so?—and looked as if she had just stepped down out of the latest Parisian fashion sheet. A man looked at hei—a man who had reached an age when he ought to have had discretion and who was still not in his dotage—looked at her and said: "That's your last winter's suit, is it not?" I don't think I need to tell you more, but I \vlll. Another human adult of the same xex told me once that my gown was very beautiful. It was a ten-cent lawn that I myself had made. So, of course, all women save up their best clothes for people who can ap preciate them, and those people are n,o men. Why Isn't a wedding in the drawing- room a parlor match? Commissioners to iHlunds Are Told to Kxplalu American Policy. Washington, Jan. 23.—The instructions to the Philippine commissioners have been prepared by the secretary of state, and no doubt they will be presented to the commissioners before they leave for New York. The commissioners will be asked to inquire into the condition, characteristics and education of the people of the several islands of the^ Philippine group; the extent and character of the government in force in each; all facts as to the intercourse between the several islands, and all other facts necessary to a good knowledge of the people, their laws, customs, habits and social condition. The corumisstoners will be expected to Interpret to the people the sentiments of friendship and good will of this government and to explain that we do not come as conquerors, but as friends, anxious for their wellbeing and advancement in the ways of civilization. ARE NOT VKRY SANGUINE. Frleuils of the Peace Uocominn Very Auxioua Washington, Jan. 21.—The treaty outlook is decidedly mixed. Friends of the treaty are admitting confidentially that they are afraid they cannot secure ratification at this session, although stoutly maintaining that they have votes enough if the matter could be brought to an issue. Opposition senators employ almost the same language in describing their position and the prospects as they see them. "We have votes enough to prevent ratification," they say, "but we aro afraid the administration influence may pull some of them away from us." It will thus be seen that there is a gecret lack of confidence on both sides. The complications presented in the problem are so new and so varied that even those most skilled in estimating penatorial sentiment and impulse confess themselves at a loss to know ex- bctly how their colleagues feel and what they will do. JJlll Carries Muny Millions. Washington, Jan. 23.—The rivers and harbors committee completed tb,o bill providing for improvement of rivers and harbors throughout the country. The bill has not yet been formally drafted, but this will bo done today, and the measure will be presented to tho house on Monday. The bill will carry cash appropriations of ?12,513,148, and will authorize contracts for $16,791,538, with additional authorized contingent contracts for $770,000, making a total of $30,074,697.

Plttsburg, Jan. 23.—Last night's indications were that the coal miners and operators will settle their differences by adopting tho present scale, with a few modifications. At a secret meeting of operators it was decided to withdraw the demand for a reduction of 10 cents per ton in the mining rate provided tho miners agree to work ten hours a day instead of eight. The mine workers also met and agreed to withdraw part of their demand for an advance of 10 cents per ton provided the eight-hour day is granted. Tho arguments on both sides were strong. Th« miners' members of the committee argued that the American Federation of Labor, with which they are affiliated, are at their back and it would not do to recede from the concession granted by the operators at Chicago one year ago. CAPTURES A WILD MAN, Walks on All Fours. Is Covered will] Hair, ami Fights I-iko a Demon. Kokomo, Ind., Jan. 23.—Constabla Elwood McCracken of North Ervin township brought to jail here a queer specimen of humanity, captured at Poplar Grove. The man, who was practically nude when found, is partially covered with a thick, shaggy growth of grizzly hair from one to four inches in length. He was at first thought to be some wild animal, as he was crouching and walking on all fours between the benches of the church. Though evidently past SO years of age, he is a Hercules in physique, and wild and vicious as a tiger. He fought like a demon on being captured. He can talk but little. He says his name is Jacobson, and that is all that could be got out of him. It is not known where he came from. The officers are at a loss to know what to do. with him. JEWELED SWO.RD FOR SCHLEY, Tile Admiral Honored by the Members of Royal Arcanum Order. New York, Jan. 23.—A handsome jeweled sword was presented to Rear Admiral Schley at Carnegie Music hall by the members of the Royal Arcanum. Admiral Schley is a member of the organization and a past regent of Farra- giit council of Washington. The sword was presented to him in memory of the victory of the American 'fleet off Santiago. Nearly 3,000 people witnessed the presentation and cheered themselves hoarse when the admiral buckled the scabbard to his side. The blade is of Damascus steel, on one side of which is etched the scene of the battle off Santiago. The hilt is wound with gold wire and the admiral's monogram is worked in it in diamond? Army IHll to Go Over. Washington, Jan. 23.—President McKinley does not expect that the army reorganization bill will bo passed this winter. He is willing that it shall go over to the next congress, provided some legislation is enacted authorizing him to maintain the present military establishment for another year. Senator Cockrell of Missouri, leading democratic member of tho committee on military affairs, believes congress will adopt a resolution just before adjournment continuing the regular force of 62,000 men and giving the president authority to retain a sufficient number of volunteers to meet the requirements of the service. nlolmrd Harding Davis 111.

Flfty-Ono llrl(lcc» for 11. & O. It. R. Baltimore, Jan. 23.—One of the largest bridge contracts that has been awarded in many years has been let by the receivers of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. In order to place the lines west of the Ohio river in proper shape to handle the heary freight equipment that is being used east of the river the receivers found it necessary to rebuild 51 bridges between Benwood, W. Va., and Chicago. That the structures might be rapidly pushed to completion it was decided to divide the work among three companies. The Youngstown Bridge Company of Youngstown will erect 31 bridges on the Central Ohio division between the Ohio river and Newark, Ohio; the Pencoyd Bridge Works was awarded the 11 bridges on the Lake Erie division, Newark to Sandusky, and the Edge Moor Bridge Company of Wilmington, Del., will erect the 9 bridges needed on the Chicago division. The total cost of these bridges is in the neighborhood of $300,000 and it is expected that all will be in place by September. Nearly six thousand tons of steel will be needed for the structures.
