Jerome's house party invitation, wifich read, "Yourself and St. Albe." My motor car never for a moment had replaced my racer, St. Albe, in my Ctions. I loved him for his swift- , his beauty, his gentleness. More than I loved woman did I regard my horse, but that was before I had met Elsie Hyler at my hostess' country home. I had always believed that I should my love increased. Timu one morning as I d:,ove out on the pleasant country road I overtook her. She was walking very slowly, aided by a cane. As she turned her startled eyes on my glossy horse a blind rage suddenly possessed her. In less time than it takes to tell it I was out of the buggy, had Elsie in my arms, into the buggy and we were off! tier face went white, aml the fear in her blue eyes was mixed with unmiti- gated scorn cud anger.

ALBE, NOTED FOIl HIS QUIET SNORTED AND BAN. my darling, but from the first mat- ters went not to my liking. A ghost seemed to stalk in our midst, and from my dear lady's lambent eyes looked of- ten a haunt&rig fear. Her voice, face and sweet disposition seemed a per- fect trinity to compel any man's ad- miration, and at times she had the whole crowd literally at her feet; then, presto, the intangible something which made her a woman apart from her sis- ters. I exercised St. Aibe every day, usual- ly preferring to drive him hitched to my easy going phaeton. I never went out that I didn't try to get Miss Hyler to accompany me, but she never ac- cepted. The seventh time her excuse was too flimsy to bear investigation, and she ran from the room. I was puzzled. She wasn't cold t'o me except in connection with my horse. As I stood frowning Mrs. Atherton pat- ted my shouider in her motherly way. "Better not waste time on what can't be helped," she counseled. Another day I overheard Mrs. Jerome and Miss Cecilia laughing about the "poor little Gmnpie," as they called Elsie. Doubtless if I had asked a direct question I should have found out soon- er, but I couldn't bring myself to dis- cuss her, and they, supposing I under- stood, talked in metaphors and left me ignorant. One golden morning I left her huffily and went after St. Albe, Miss Cecilia's mocking laughter trailing after me. I drove away--miles away. Coming back, I was still pondering on the sit- uation. What had Jerome meant with his epigramnmtic "better chuck it, Den?" As one joins mosaic work, I west a most surprising sight met my eyes. St. Albe was trotting swiftly to- ward me--swiftly, but under perfect control--and Elsie was his driver. Be- hind them came the tallyho crowd shouting itself hoarse. Elsie drew proudly up beside me. The tallyho folks spilled out, all talk- ing at once. "Oh, you brave creature!" "tIow did you dare?" "Shan't I help you out?" "Why, you don't look a bit scared!" "Why, I am not scared, and I am so happy I think I shall die!" Elsie ex- claimed when she could get a hearing. "It's wonderful! The minute I felt the reins in my hands that horrible fear .left me. I slowed him down. turned him around, and now I am going to drive him home. Oh, I'm so happy !" Every one--at least every man in the house, barrhg Jerome--entertained m that evening. They seemed to t'.:- turns at it. At last I wrenched my<('i ' away and went into the garden wher< I had last seen her. She was not there nor could I find her in the moonlit or chard. At last I gave her up an ,, started for the stables. St. Albe wa: In the paddock, and I caught the flut ter of white beside him. Crying and laughing and murmur tng, there was my darling with he" arms around St. Albe's unappreciativ, neck. "Just think of it, St. Albe," she w:': saying. "I've had my first proposal to night and five besides. It's owing to you, you beauty." "And this is the seventh," I observed. taking the white arms and putting my own neck where St. Albe's had been "If you accepted any of the six, ym may as well tell him you have chang- ed your mind, for I will have you. I will, Elsie beloved!" "Why, Dennis, of course you will!" she answered, putting up her red lips to be kissed. Function of (he Hone of Lords. The antiquated constitution of the house of lords and its comparative neglect of its duties irritate modern reformers both theoretical and practi- cal and have led them often to call for Its overthrow. But at the bottom of this charge of obsoleteness and ineffi- ciency is the fear that the peers may take it into their heads to be energetic and industrious, constant in attend- ance and active in operation. If they were so--if the lords chose to be as put together Mrs. Atherton's vigorous as they were in 1689 or 1782 Miss Cecilia's laughter, ,Ierome's words or even in 1807 and 1832--the demo- and various hints from the others, but when I had my pieces fitted I failed to cratlc element in the United Kingdom would have had hard work to complete read the design. As St. Albe turned eastward I saw the girl of my thoughts sitting by the roadside. Her white face, her little shoe in her lap, her swollen foot, told the tale of a sprained an]de. I jumped out. "Let me lift you in," I said. "I won't hurt the poor foot." "Oh, no!" she exclaimed, her blue eyes black with some strong feeling. "I shall be able to walk pretty soon. Please go away." "I shall do nothing of the kind," 1 replied, promptly growing angry. "I'm sorry to be so distasteful, but 1 guess you can endure me till I get you home the change which it has carried so far and longs to carry farther. What the lords can do now was shown by Glad- stone's home ruIe bill. His Immense personal Influence and the fear of an Irish revolt, added to nc small amount of serious conviction, forced the bill through the commons. The lords met in numbers scarcely known for a life- :time. The case was put on both sides with great force and with that serious, lofty, high bred eloquence that has nev- er become extinct in the upper house during many centuries. The bill was rejected by an immense majority, and the friends of the measure had the sat- or you can drive the horse yourself." isfaetion of knowing that the verdict That ride was a memorable one.

Good water is found everywhere, at an average depth of 20 feet. AGRICULTURE. The soil is very productive, and crops of all kinds do well. Pota- toes, hay and oats are the principal crops raised for shipnmnt. Fruit and .vegetables yield abundanti*" The Alaska market keeps price .... everything high. DAIRYING AND STOCK RAISING. Puget Sound is the natural heine of cattle, as grass is p]eiUiful nine months or more, and feeding is of short duration. The number of cattle is steadily increasing. TIMBER AND MILLS. The Country is all heavily tim- bored, yielding three to eight mil- lion feet to the quarter section, of fir, cedar and hemlock. Numerous logging camps in the vicinity en- ploy several hundred men all the )ear round. The natural lay of the country brings everything out by Monroe from miles around. Four saw mills and five shingle mills are operated all the time. SOCIAL ADVANTAGES. Monroe has good school, graded from primary to high school, with ten months school each year. The religious denominations represented are the Methodist, Congregational, Swedish Evangelical, Catholic, and New Iestalnent' Mission church. The fraternal and secret orders are the Independent Order of Odd Fel- lows, Rebekahs, Foresters of Amer- ica, Modern Woodmen of America Royal Neighbors of America, Knights of the Maccabees, Ladies of the Maccabees, and the Tribe of en Hur. OPPORTUNITIES. The opportunities for both capi- tal and labor are numeroas and of substantial nature. The location on the main line of the Great Northern railway insures a market for all manufactured wood proJucts and the fine qualky of timber and its cheapness furnish the material. In agriculture the scope is wide and promising. Fruit growing and handling will yield a large return. Small fruit on a few acres offer op- portunities to people with limited means. Potatoes are very p}ofila- ble. Truck gardening is in de- mand. Butter and eggs always bring good prices. The demand for men in the mills and logging camps is continually increasing. LOOKING AHEAD.
