A new movement is on foot in Mrs Mr.iua was thinking as seriously as she CCMI.I pfff think at fill of marrying apnui S>u> was n young and pretty widow n:i'l A-hon sho tirst appeared in the wmvrtr.'.onal weeds that so pointedly indicate Uie pvcscnco of grief for a departed husband London wont mad about her Fair woim-n ',vlio:o sponsus were still hale aii'l he::rfy took to going out iu bind; cnspi! hall tlrc.^es, and for a tinis colors Iji-.; ;::m almost unfashionable But wlufU the appointed year of mourning had run its course Mrs. Alamo stopped tvuaritig black with a lif>ht heart She was passionately fond of bright things, of gay music, cf tho frivolities that are supposed to make life endurable. She put away her somber gowns and iu a short time had almost forgotten that she had over been married. Although an English woman, she was inclined to take tho French view of matrimony and to consider that it rather meant emancipation than love— that it was, in fact, a sort of latchkey presented to a woman on her wedding day by the man whom she took "for better " tier husband had possessed a fortune and an inherited weakness of tho lungs. He died of the latter olid bequeathed to her tho former. Now, when sho chanced to think of him, she not unnaturally blessed his memory. Her freedom was absolutely complete. Sho could go into a nunnery or dance, which over she choso. Sho did neither precisely, but visited tho playhouses, was often to be seen with lively little parties sipping at tho Savoy, drove down very frequently to Hnrlingham or Kauelagh and spent her days and nights in society, desiring nothing better, perfectly satisfied and perfectly successful. Everybody called her a dear little woman, and the only luxury that sho could not command was an enemy This sort of thing went on until she was 28. Life was certainly real to her, but it was never earnest. Ifc was a jingle of music, a ring o' bells, a masked ball without n midnight of unmasking a battle in which tho only weapons wore flowers. She enjoyed it all immensely until she was 28, and then a certain weariness began to creep over her and to frighten her. Sho was forced to realize, with a strong reluctance, that among her many possessions she num bered the bizarre capacity of tiring of accustomed things which has wrecked so many lives and wrinkled so faces. Her frivolous friends bored her. She was passing into another period— Maine thought—grate, restrained, but very sincere, very straightforward. As she read it r»be recalled the near past, in which tho artist had been so large a fig- iire. Yes, it was true slio had given him every rrason to hope. She had singled him out Ironi the crowd Which had surrounded her and led him on to love her. Did shu love him? She thought so. "What shall 1 do?" she murmured. LINE. was bending to listen to fresh voices. A love of fame, and of those who possessed it, woke slowly in her heart.. She had never been a social Diana, never a huntress tracking down lions. When she had met great men, or men reputed great, she had liked them to worship her She had never dreamed of worshiping them. But one season in her set it became tho fashion to admire effort and sit at the feet of accomplishment rather than of beauty or of money, and when her set got up Mrs. Maine remained in the posture of worship. Henceforth shq loved only to be with those who had done something, or were in course of doing something. She gave up going to balls and began to search about in her mind for talents. Could not sho do something, too— write a story, paint a picture, cause a world to weep or laugh or gape at some deed of hers? She was tired ,of being known as a beauty. Compliments paid to her features fatigued her. She wanted people to adore her mind. That they found it difficult to do so'was a source of annoyance to her. Only when she had made an effort in literature and failed did she become less egotistical. Her vanity 'evaporated like a little mist, and, unable to be a successful writer herself, she was at last content to live iu the work of others. She was resolved to have a salon and to inspire talent to mighty deeds. Rising men attracted her greatly, and she surrounded herself with them, impregnating their atmosphere with the power and dignity that emanate from the fully risen.

There woro steps outside, and tho bat- ler opi-iii'fl the door, but it was not the artist who followed him. A thin win.ian, With a 1-ght fringe worn very low on her forehead, gray eyes and unsmiling expression, entered slowly. Mrs Maine tried to hide the tlisap poiutmcnt that sho felt. "How good oi you to como through tho fog to see me, Belle, " she said. "Sit here by tho fire, and I will givo you some tea." Her friend sat down dreamily and re marked, "Whom were you expecting, dear?" "How- could 1 expect anybody ou sucl a day?" "And it was a man. I know that b; your look into the glass. " "Really, Belle, you are too observant And suppose it was, what then?" Bcllu do Rinski looked at Mrs. Main critically and continued: "Why, you aro actually blushing I Surely you are not expecting a lover to come to you through tho fog?" Tho young widow laughed a little uu easily. "What if I said a future husband?" "And is ho coming?" "At 5 o'clock." "In ten minutes? So you are positively thinking of marrying again? How extraordinary 1" "I scarcely seo why. Do you intend always to remain a widow—the richest, tho most independent widow in London, as I heard you called only yesterday?" Tho other waived the question with a quiet deliberation that was characteristic of her and put another, "May I not hear his name?" Mrs. Maine hesitated for a moment. Then sho answered: "Well, you aro a great friend, and you probably have guessod it already. Why should I not tell you? It is your old friend, Roger Slaclo." The Comtesso do Rinski put her tea cup clown with a sudden movement that caused a clatter of china. "Yes, a littlo more tea, please," sh said. "And I like it strong. Roger Slado—that is a curious choice. So ho proposed to you?" "Only by letter. He is coming today for his answer, at 5 o'clock. If I say 'Noii-at home,' he will take it for a refusal;" "Really! And you will say"— " 'At home,' I think." Tho comtesse looked at the clock thoughtfully and sipped her strong tea. "And so in five minutes you mean to make up your mind to relinquish your liberty?" she said in even tones. "Well, why not? We women are the strangest creatures certainly. There will be an eruption of pictures presently upon the walls of the exhibitions. Mrs. Slade as Venus, as Ariadne, as Psyche; portrait of the artist's wife, by R. Slade, A. R. A. You will be a pretty model." "Yes. It is much the same thing. I suppose his earnestness will never bore you. He is a good fellow, but ho is terribly in earnest." "I like that. There is a depth in his gravities, not dullness. Yes; I know I like that." "But severe earnestness at breakfast, at afternoon tea, in one's opera box, might not it prove trying?" Mrs. Maine considered. "I don t know. I have hardly thought about it. He only wrote to me this morning." "And. you will say 'yes' without moment's consideration? After all, you love him, you are quite right." "I think I do," Mrs. Maine said little doubtfully. "I think I shall."_ The Comtesso de Rinski took a tiny roll of bread and butter and remarked, "They say his prices are going down." •»' •• •• f _ • iC.^^>rr««t rt/1 Oi •tr»llf:ll?

An old historical document, tho deed given by the Duko of York to William Penn for a tract of land on tho Delaware at Now Castle, is tho bono of contention between the state of Delaware and J. Henry Rogers of New Castle, Pa. The stato of Delaware has been advised that the document rightfully belongs to it, while Mr. Rogers claims it as his property because his ancestors Afford G6od feottdS. Farmers have been content to for alleged highways Strips of mttd, sometimes frozen, sometimes dried, sometimes )iq*id and never good highway, and tho rest of the world would never disturb the serenity of the farnv ers if the farmers alone were abused and injured by these strips of mud, says John M. Stahl in Good Roads. It is also true that farmers have to ci certain extent rightfully asked for n higher piano of living, and it has been given to them to the extent to which they asked. In the township in which I lived 25 years ago— a very rich, purely agricultural region— there were only two carriages, and when one of those carriages passed along the road I and tho other youngsters climbed on the fence to gaze at it. Then we went to church in two horse farm wagons, but now if a resident of that neighborhood rescued it from British soldiers nearly a century and a quarter ago and havo treasured ib ever since. It has been handed clown from generation to gener ation, and their right has never beei challenged until recently. Tho cpvctec parchment is now in tho hands of S. V Heukelsof this city, and it is stated tha he will hold fast to it until some settle ment is made of tho matter. There is talk of big damage claims running up to $1,000,000 if the state of Delaware insists upon taking tho deed by force of law. The deed is for a tract of laud on the Delaware, confined in a circle 12 miles in diameter, with the center at tho town of New Castle. Attorney General .lohn R. Nicholson of Delaware has already taken legal steps to secure this historical document.—Philadelphia Press. STORIES OF THE DAY. Some Funny Happenings In the Utah Constitutional Convention. Some funny things happen in tho Utah constitutional convention. A proposition introduced the other day was that the constitution should prohibit the use" of cigarettes, but it was objected to on the ground that cigarettes break down the constitution. Another delegate, by force of habit, of course, addressed the convention as "Gentlemen of the jury!" and roused the delegates to laughter that was only suppressed by the chairman's gavel.—New York Tribune. Showed I,ack of Sense. In a biographical sketch of tho late Dr. McCosh that appears in the Princeton Bulletin it is stated that on one occasion a visiting clergyman, while conducting evening chapel service, made an elaborate prayer, including in his petitions all the officers of the college, COUSTI1Y ISOAB IN WET WEATHER. took his family to church in a farm wagon the youngsters would certainly Stop lo look at him. Practically every farmer in tho township has a carriage. I do not think that there was an organ in that township 25 years ago. Now half the farmhouses contain very good organs indeed, and tho organ is hardly good enough now. The talk is of pianos. It is within 25 that the chromo reached that neighborhood, and it was bettor than tho baro walls 1 But it has gone, and in its place arc steel engravings and enjoyable pictures, some of them painted by farmers' daughters, and some real etchings. And with these things have come "store carpet,"'and lace curtainH, and beautiful lawns, and magazines, and patent leather shoes, all practically unknown there a quarter of a century ago. It will probably be said that the price of these things has much declined. So it has. Because of tho increased demand more of them were required. And just as more good highways are required will their cost decrease. Labor saving, cost saving devices and methods will be invented and discovered. In some parts of Illinois in which the road tax is collected in money and tho work is let to bidders a class of roaclmakors has been developed, provided with machines and acquainted with methods that have reduced by almost one-half tho cost of making earth roads. This is an important point apparently overlooked—as we make more good roads they will cost It should not escape consideration that, while buggies, carpets, organs and pictures are not money makers,,not even the bitterest opponent of good roads has been able to make it appear that good highways will not pay a fair income on the investment. Tho capital put into them will not bo dead capital. . It will be productive. Good roads will at the least help to pay for themselves. In fact, they will pay back all their cost and more. : ALIGNMENT OF ROADS. Mrs. Maine frowned slightly, "Impossible, " she said. "Why, he is at the very height of fame." "Yes; he is very celebrated.
