It was generally admitted by the members and friends of the Camboro football club that tbe fact of its hav­ ing reached the final stage of tbe Blank' shire cup competition was due in no small measure to the superior goal keeping of Bob Templeton, and it was believed that his individual prowess would just about turn the scales in fa­ vor of the Camboro in the final tie against William Rangers. Bob Templeton was a fine, well built young fellow, and his popularity in the town was as much due to his good na- tured, happy disposition as to his valor in the football field. He had signed for five years with the Camboro club on advantageous terms and tho present was his second season. Since his advent he had taken-unto bimsejf a wife—pretty May Dunning, the daughter of old Jack Dunning, the club's professional trainer, and the guide, philosopher - and friend of tbe members—and had furnished a neat lit­ tle villa, half a mile out of town. But at length the inevitable small cloud appeared on tbe hitherto clear horizon of his existence, and on the eve of the great match Bob was in sore trouble. He was seated in the comfortable lit­ tle parlor at home, his untouched break­ fast beforo him, and staring blankly at a legal looking missive he held in his hand, while pretty May was crying softly at his elbow. The document was from the Camboro Loan and Disconnt bank and stated that unless Robert Templeton remitted the sum of $300 ty the following Mon­ day a' certain bill of sale would be acted upon forthwith. Previous to coming to Camboro he had supported his father and mother, and even since his marriage had con­ tinued to help them with weekly remit­ tances, until, six months ago, he heard that the good will of a small business in his native town was for sale cheap, and, believing that it would be the very thing for his parents, he set his heart upon purchasing it for them and thus relieve himself of a responsibility. Four hundred dollars was asked, and, in view of his improved income, he felt justified in raising the amount with his furniture as security. Bob'made his way to the imposing-of­ fices of the Camboro Loan and Discount bank. The manager gave evasive an­ swers. Bob begged for a time, but was refused, and after telling the manager whut he thought of him in language more forcible than polite,, left the office more convinced than before that there was some undercurrent in the affair which he did not understand. On leaving the bank Bob had not proceeded far when a hearty \Good morning, Templeton 1\ and a sounding smack on the shoulder arrested his prog­ ress, and before him stood a portly, loudly dressed, much bejeweled indi­ vidual, well known in Camboro as \Colonel\ Bill, the bookmaker. \You don't look up to the mark, Templeton,\ observed the colonel. \What's the matter? Shall you be all right for tomorrow?\ \Of course,\ returned Bob. \I'm a- bit worried about a private matter; that's all.\ \Yournatural modesty, Templeton,\ went on the colonel, \doesn't prevent you being aware that tbe club look to you us the leading factor in their pros­ pects of success, I presume?\ \I know nothing about that,\ an­ swered Bob. \But I do know that the Rangers won't get the leather into the Camboro net many times if I can pre­ vent them.\ \You could, if you'd a mind, he the cause of Camboro losing tomorrow,\ suggested the colonel, glancing at his companion- \What do yqu mean ?\ returned Bob, wondering what tbe other was 1 driv­ ing at. \Now look herb, Templeton,\ said the colonel, facing round, \we'd better come $wtbe point' at once. I' stand to win a pile of money on my book if the Wilmer Rangers beat Carnboro tomor­ row, and you are the man who has the best chance of bringing about that, from my point of view, desirable consumnia-\ tion. I know what your kittle private Worry', is about, for I may as well tell you I myself practically constitute, the Camboro Loan and Disconnt bank al­ though few people are aware of it Now, it would be a eimple matter and no one would be any the wiser for - you to let one or two of Williams' shots pass you. Anyhow, in a 'word, if the Rangers win that bill of sale immediately ceases to exist.\ If any one had hinted to Bob Temple­ ton that he was likely to give a second thought to such a suggestion as the colonel's the hinter would probably have measured his length upon the floor. But he was only human, and when May's tears broke forth afresh upon hearing the result\ of his visit to the bank— he did not mention his encounter with the colonel—a small, tempting voice kept whispering to him tbe possi- • ble way out of his trouble. Tlie* nest morning—the day of ifcbe match—he was out earty and 'went for a bug stroH with Walker, the captain. ana^ j acK ijangiord, inst fto ~ get the,ir> legs'in going order.. Qne..moment,he loathed himself . : -fpr.ever4thinfi 'n ^:^f |=.aj dishpnpjable -meaM 'trbu bierbut. \the '^ne^^h^^sam^eixou:- ble, accompanied $y thetemptingvoicej was uppermost, iff his\ mind. While making his way 'to r the pavili in he caught- sight of Colonel .Bill On. tie stand and received from him.a signifi­ cant glance. : As'Walker at length led out his..team, the mayor pf Camboro, who was chairman of directors of the club, singled out Bob. and. shaking hands with him, said: '•Templeton, my boy. we are all put­ ting our faith, in you today, and we know that it is in safe keeping. Play up. At last the game started, Camboro kicking off. The commencement was sensational, as the Rnngers' forwards, getting the ball among them, rushed it up,to the Camboro goal. Williams scor­ ing with an oblique shot, which, neither Bob nor any other goalkeeper could havesaved. Just on half timeLangford put one neatly-through .for Camboro, thus equalizing the score. In the second half for a long time neither side gained much advantage, but eventually the Rangers' forwards made another of their famous rushes, and Williams seemed once more to have the Camboro goal at his mercy. He steadied himself and took a deliberate shot, and- a loud shout signalized the fact that — that Bob Templeton had made one of the most wonderful saves ever seen pn the aground. Not to be denied, the Rangers made several more onslaughts upon Camboro's goal, but Bob was always equal to the occasion. * At length, just before the call of time, a clever passing run by the Cam­ boro front rank resulted in the captain shooting into the Rangers' net, and the whistle went amid tremendous excite­ ment, Camboro winning by two goals to one. Bob felt a man again as he received the mayor's effusive congratulations. He had been tempted, but when the momentous moment came he had stood the test. Bob was tired when after the match dinner he arrived home, and as he rested the reaction after the excitement of the day set in and his tronble once more occupied his mind. He knew well that now he need expect no mercy from Colonel Bill. May, who seemed in strangely good spirits, comforted him, saying that she felt sure something would turn up to help them, but she would not have been so sanguine had she not had a little card up her sleeve. Be that as it may, when Bob came down to breakfast the next morning, she handed him a letter, and as she watched him break open the envelope and read it she did not evince any ex­ traordinary surprise when he suddenly shouted, \Hurrah!\ \Let inelook,\ said May, and, receiv­ ing the letter, she saw that it was from the mayor and read as follows: \Dear Templeton—I want you to fa­ vor me and one or two of my codirect- ors by accepting the inclosed check, as some recognition of your splendid serv­ ices today in the match we are all so proud to have won. I knew all about your trouble and temptation, but I had faith in you as a man of honor, and my faith was not misplaced. Yours faith­ fully\— May made a little confession, telling hpw, from certain muruiufings in his restless sleep, she bad put two and two together and arrived at a pretty correct conclusion regarding Colonel. Bill and his machinations; how. in desperation, she had gone to the mayor to ask him to. advance her tho money on Bob's sal­ ary ; how he had listened to her as she related all, including Colonel Bill's offer, and how he told her to wait until after the match, trust in her husbands but to say nothing to him in the mean­ time.—London Tit-Bits. Filbert Culture In Italy. It will surprise many to hear that in certain districts of Italy the filbert crop rivals the produce of the vine in com­ mercial importance. These delicious nuts are grown on bushes or shrubs, which are arranged in groups that are from 15 to 25 feet apart so as to insure the access of plenty of light and air. v They thrive best in a deep, clayey soil, and the planting takes place during November and December of slips from the mother plant. Seeds could be used, but the growth would be too slow to be profitable. As it is, the shrubs do not bear fruit until the third year, any blossoms appearing before that time, be­ ing removed, so that the plant shall not be impoverished. The plants are periodically pruned, when any slips which have failed to sprout are removed and- replaced by others; so that; there are plantations-which remain ih full growth although nearly 100 years old. The filbert is not subject to the diseases, common to other crops, but it suffers severely from hailstones and from cold winds. Fnnny Ada. The following cryptic announcements lately appeared in the advertisement columns of one or two London papers; \Wanted a footman for a small fam­ ily.

Fresh'whiteC sand was strewn on tbe clean floor, and the plated top of each candy jarfshone like silver. The mint sticks stood holt, up .inside them in the primmest' kind of a way. Mrs. O'Shea herself sat in the corner knitting. A tinkle' at the bell and an emphatic slam announced a customer. It was apple cheeked Mrs. Flannigan of the second floor. 1 \Three pair 0' shoestrings, -Mrs O'Shea, \she said, .putting down tbe money with, an abstracted air. \So'you be a-lookin for her every minute, I un­ derstand.\ \Every minute, now,\ returned Mrs. O'Shea smiling. \An you'd think by KILA LEAKED BACK TN THE OLD CHAIR. • the way I've* scrubbed up, the eyes of ber wud be takin in every spot of dirt.\ \Well my heart goes out to you.

But I can't think av thim sharp knives a -cuttin av me darlin an mebbe to no good. It quivers toe flesh, Mrs. Flannigan.\ An hour later all was bustle and stir in Mrs. O'Shea 's sitting, room. A bulg­ ing springed old easy chair, bought cheap of the pawnbroker, WAB drawn close to the fire, and Mrs: O'Shea was carefully removing the hood from Eila 's brown curls, her face tremulous with tears and smiles. \Say again, Eila, darlin, that you're glad,you are goin to live with your old mammy. Oh, but it 's the sweet flower you arpl Shall you miss the grand doin'£ of the institution?\ \But this is my own home,\ re­ turned Eila, patting the shabby cush­ ions gleefully and waving one little hand toward the fire. \I smell tea and toast, and I feel you near me, mammy, and that is better than all the institu­ tions in the world 1 Why, I've lain awake night thinking of the time when I'd live with you, mammy, and how happy we'd be I\ Eila leaned back in the old chair, her curls streaming over the cushions and a dimpling smile over her face. \I learned 'Home, Sweet Home,' \ she continued gayly, \on purpose to sing to you.\ And immediately she^rolled it off in a clear treble voice while her mother wiped away glad'tears. \It 's A canary in here-for sure,\ said Mrs. Flannigan's cheery' voice at tbe ball door. 4 'Come along, Missus Kearny, here 's theNsousie bird I Ah, Eila, darlin, here 's \thelseed cake I b &ked for you.

' . \Oh plenty. I'll come up in the morning.and sing th'em all to you.\ - One warm spring, afternoon Jimsey and -Eila were sitting on the lounge of the* little back room, playing cat's* cradle. The bell in the store jingled violently, and Timmy Doolan rushed in with his eyes sparkling. *\ \Mrs. O'Shea I\ S \JSow be careful, Timmy Doolan, how you'retumblin in me dure!!' cried the startled lady aB she saw who her customer was. \Oh but Mrs. O'Shea t Take th' heed of me! Dr. Dinnis says I kin have the horse and chaise this whole afternoon to mesilf—an Katie's the gentlest baste that iver you saw, and Mre. Flannigan says Jimsey may go—for the doctor says I'm a good driver as iver he is—an pl'ase may Eila go too?\ •'Idunno,\ said Mrs. O'Shea, dubi- otsly. \How do 'you be comin to have thowctor's hoorse?'\ \He's gone out of the city to a big consultation, ah I asked it of him.. He's the heart in him, Dr. Dinnis has. Think of the sweet air thim two kin be Breath- in in some lanes I know.\ Busy preparations followed. Tim rushed around to the stables for the car­ riage, and th'e whole court turned out to see them off. He foupd a quiet river road with fine residence's dotting one side, while the water rippled gently in the ledges o f the other. The wind blew Eila 's^hair aside, and she talked constantly of the sweet odors which she detected with the keen­ est appreciation. Jimsey rambled on about the birds, boats and trees in a strange^mixture. \You'll be surprised now for sure,\ said Tim with a chuckle as he turned in at a great iron gate. Jimsey pulled his sleeve anxiously. They were drawing near a large vine covered piazza. \Timmy it's a house you're runnin into! Look out!\ A fine, portly gentleman crossed the piazza to meet them. \Ah Tim, you're a little late! I am home first. So these are Jimsey and Eila. Don 't be afraid, dear,\ as Eila shrank back at the sound of his heavy voice._ \I am only Dr. Dennis. Let me .help you to this chair, Jimsey, lad. Tim ^romTsedlO bring me some interesting patients.\ He glanced with a profes­ sional but pitying look at Jimsey'e helpless limbs and, then at Eila's'beau- tiful flushed face. They had a charming call. There was cake and lemonade for them, and Mrs. Dennis picked them each a bouquet of flowers from the conservatory. Jimsey held his quietly in his hands, but EilaJ \OH MOTHER! I CAN SEEl I CAN SEE TOU!\ entirely forgot her shyness in her de­ light over a cluster of long \stemmed rose§^ \Oh if I could only see them!\ she exclaimed eagerly. After that Dr. Dennis let Tim have a carriage.for an >hour or two every week, and very often the drive ended on the vine covered porch. Timmy strolled into the back room after supper one evening. His usual ready wit seemed to have forsaken him, and he played with the cat for awhile in silence. \Mrs. O'Shea, it'sthinkin a good bit of Eila and Jimsey they are out at the doctor's.\ '•So ye Bay, Tim, and it's thankful I am.\ , il Mrs. Dinnis says -to me only-this afternoon, says she, 'Eila must come out and stop on our farm the three weeks,' says she; 'it's needin the air she iB,'\ \I'm obliged to her, Tim.\ - \ 'An,' says she, 'ask her mother if I Those Modest JAPANESE! Here is a matrimonial advertisement that is bard to take seriously. A lady who calls herself Hosnijoshi seeks a husband in the Kanazawa Shimbun, a Japanese paper. She describes herself thus: .

It- is a somewhat 'remarkable-; fact that the\general public\ of England knows'very little concerning the \secret service of the- general' postoffice, al­ though the service is .probably the most- complete of its kind in the,whole world.. To' the outsider the secret service'ia known as the postal secret inquiry branch, and not one in a hundred of those in the employ of the postofiScV knows the exact Workings of the secret service, as the department hns,the dis­ tinction of being in the charge of cer­ tain permanent officials, under the di­ rection of : . the home secretary and tho prime minister for the time being. Orice, and once only,, in recent years has jt minister of the government allow­ ed himself -to he drawn into making a statement wibich admitted that the se- creta^of the postoffice were used for po­ litical purposes.\ Such an admission was made in tbe days of the first dynamite scare, when an Irish member made a general charge against the government of tampering with the correspondence of certain Irish­ men.; Lord John Manners, ih reply, evaded the question in an ambiguOUB manner, but indiscreetly called atten­ tion j to a clause in the postoffice abt which empowers the postaPauthorities to opjen and even confiscate any letter or package which they might reasona­ bly suspect covered some infringement of the rules of the department. The secret service is divided into two distinct branches, the higher and the lower,, and the duties of the latter are brought to the notice of the public very frequently, as it haB to do with the pros­ ecution of dishonest men in the em­ ploy of the postoffice. The great bulk of the robberies committed inside the walls,of the postoffice is attempted by the younger hands and it is for that reason that every newcomer is occasion­ ally subjected to keen watching from a quarter that he least suspects. Quite unknown to him, he is kept un­ der the observation of a keen eyed watcher, vvho' is securely hidden from view iii a secret alcove, almost within touch of the sorter, messenger or what­ ever the employee may be. Every move­ ment is noted and analyzed, and it would take a very expert man to try on any underhanded game and escape de­ tection. On the continent *the correspondence of private individuals is liable to the scrutiny of ,the police or other govern­ ment agents, and no secret is made of the fact; but, on the other hand, our officials write indignant letters of de­ nial and repudiation, while all the time they are perfecting the fine art of open­ ing letters without leaving any traces of the operation. Like most clever arts, that of opening a letter without causing, suspicion* is simplicity* itself. A glance at the qual­ ity of the stationery decides .the opera­ tor on the means to be adopted. Some kinds of paper will bear the steaming process without leaving any traces, and in that event - the operation is very simple. The contents having been ex amined, and, if necessary, copied, -they are restored to their envelope, which is regummed, the flap burnished with a bone instrument. Contrary to general belief, the sealed envelope presents no difficulty to the ex­ pert. A piece of new bread, kneaded in­ to a firm ball, is pressed on the. seal and the facsimile is obtained. Various other methods have been attempted in taking the design of seals, but the cne we have quoted has been declared to be far away- the best for the purpose, the bread be­ ing clean and less liable to leave any trace of tampering behind. This dough matrix is hardened as soon as the seal has been modeled, and when the con­ tents of ''the letter have been obtained the envelcpe.iB closed ahdresealed with the dough mold. * When it is deemed unsafe to moisten an envelope, it is cut open. The opera­ tion is' a\delicate' one and to any hut an expert very'difflcult to perform prop­ erly. One end of the envelope is Held firmly between two flat pieces of wood, the edge of the paper projecting about the twentieth part\ of. an inch. The .ex­ pert passes tbe back of his knife rapidly over the end, roughening and flattening it, while an equally quick pass with the razorlike edge cuts the envelope open:- When the contents are replaced, the edges of the Envelope are stuck together with a hairline of powerful gum, sub­ mitted to pressure for a few minutes,, and ho on9 not in the secret would guess what had been- done. So long as the flap and seal appear intact tbe receiver is invariably satis­ fied. % Now and 'then suspicious corre­ spondents place sand, pdwder, hairs or other minute objects inside the envelope by way of test, but this does not trou­ ble the expert a little bit. He is on the lookout-for that kind of dodge, so is careful to open the • envelope over a -large sheet'of pure white paper. When these \;teats\ fall out, they ore careful­ ly collected and restored. ^ The officials in the detective depart­ ment can tell some funny stories of their own -astuteness. When the charge of tampering was made by the Irish membersi one of the Moderate party de­ fended? the government'- and \declared that he ^had satisfied himself by a series' of infallible testa that\ .his correspond­ ence was, inviolate.'. He was blissfully ignorant of th'e fact;;however, that -he never, received a letter that was not previOUBly overhauled by the authori­ ties. - —London Letter.*\ -The ancient Egyptians ruaed. to fish .with cats on the Nile.- * TheDkni'rh'als Were trained., to enter tii&frt&!f>$8il1l_ seize the- fish, which werehtrfenotakenr away by^the.fishermen;/:;*\! d^tntjfiiht' ;-^d (MUZ .. - - --j>.
