But when they were out under the frosty stars he had the good sense to walk her up and down in the healing silence and darkness for five full minutes before he ventured to say what was in his mind. When lie spoke it was earnestly and to the purpose, not without eloquence. He loved her: had always loved her, he thought. Could she not. with time and the will to try, learn to love him? not as a cousin? She turned quickly and put both hands on his shoulders. "Oh Cousin Billy don't! " she faltered brokenly; and he, seeing at once that he had played the housebreaker where he would fain have been the welcome guest, took his punishment manfully, drawing her arm in his and walking her yet other turns up and down the long platform until his patience and the silence had wrought their perfect work. "Does it hurt much?" she asked, softly, after a long time. "You would have to change places with me to know just how much It hurts," he answered. "And yet you haven't left me quite desolate, Virginia. I still have something left all I've ever had, 1 fancy." "And that It "My love for you, you know. isn't at all contingent upon yojir yes or no; or upon possession it never has been, I think. It has never asked much except the right to be."

She nodded, but when they reached the Rosemary the returning engine was rattling upon the open siding. Virginia drew back. "I don't want to meet Uncle Somer-villJust now," she confessed. "Can't we climb up to the observation platform at the other end of the car?" He said yes, and made the affirmative good by lifting her in his arms over the high railing. Once safely on the car. she bade him leave her. She was shivering a little in the chill wind sliding down from the , yet she would not go in until she had made sure. In a little time her patience was rewarded. The huge engine came storming up ths grade on the new line, pushing its three which were black with clinging men. On the car nearest the locomotive, where the dazzling beam of the headlight pricked him out for her, stood Winton, braced against the lurchings of the train over the uneven track. "God speed you, my love!" she murmured, softly; and when the gloom of the upper canyon cleft had engulfed man and men and storming engine she turned to go in. She was groping for the doorknob in the darkness made thicker by the glare of the passing headlight when a voice, disembodied for the moment, said: "Wait a minute. Miss Carteret; I'd like to have a word with you." She drew back quickly. "Is it you, Mr. Jastrow? Let me go in, please." "In one moment. I have something to say to you something you ought to hear." "Can't it be said on the other side of the door? I am cold very cold, Mr. Jastrow." It was his saving hint, hut he would not take it. "No, it must he said to you alone. We have at least one thing in common, Miss Carteret you and I. That is a proper appreciation of the successful realities. I " She stopped him with a quick little gesture of Impatience. "Will you be good enough to stand aside and let me go in?" The keea breath of the snow-capwas summer warm in comparison with the chilling iciness of her manner: but the secretarv went on 'unmoved: "Success Is the only thing worth while In this world. Winton will fail, but I shan't. And when I do succeed. I shall marry a woman who can wear the purple becomingly " "I hope you may. I'm sure," she answered, wearily.

COW ALL LAW Rockefeller's Company Assessed Heaviest Fine of Record, Judge Landis Fixing the Sum at $29,240,000. Chicago Judge Kenesaw M. Landis on Saturday in the United States district couit fined the Standard Oil company of Indiana $29,240,000 for violations of the law against accepting rebates from railroads. The flue is the largest ever assessed against any individual or any corporation in the history of American jurisprudence, and Is slightly more than 131 times as great as the amount received by the company through its rebating operations. The case will be carried to the higher courts by the defendant company.

The judge, in fact, declared in his opinion that the officials of the Standard Oil company who were responsible for the practices of which the corporation was found guilty were no better than counterfeiters and thieves. Under the seven indictments still pending against the Standard Oil company, an additional fine amounting to $S8.44o.ooo may be levied against the company if it is found guilty on trial.

In an address delivered before the chamber of commerce, James R Garfield, secretary of the interior, alluded to the fine imposed upon the Standard Oil company at Chicago. In the course of his speech he said: "The decision and fine are the end of a long fight, and will teach people of this country that no man, big or little, is above the law. The Standard Oil company and others like that great corporation, have gone ahead on the theory that they were so powerful that they could do things the ordinary citizen could not. We are showing them that they cannot." Asked If the prosecution could colGarfield relect the fine, Secretary plied: "You may be assured we can.

A certain percentage of colonies will swarm ia spite of anything that may be done It takes but little to induce swarming during a good honey harvest. Bees left to themselves will generally send out one swarm In a season, often a second swarm, sometimes a third. In hiving swarms it frequently happens that the bees take wing when dumped in front of their new hive instead of crawling into it. We have had a few swarms go back and cluster on the same limb after they had zone. For the purpose, it is believed, of thwarting the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul from securing a right of way westward from Helena over the Rocky mountains, the Northern Pacific has let a contract to Shepard, Sims & Co., for the building of a cutoff between Helena and Elliston, by way of McDonald pass.

We have tried it on a few swarms with good results. While the cluster Is yet hanging on the tree take a small spray pump, or syringe, and wet the cluster of bees with one or two quarts of cold water, then take your swarm catcher shown in the cut and turn it up under the cluster and get them into it. They will cling together while you carry them to the hive, ami when dumped in fiout of it they will not readily take wing again, but will run into it. Swarms that have been hived a few hours and seem restless, or cluster mostly on the outside of their hive, can also be made more tractable by a little spraying. Bees need a great quantityof water during summer, and the beekeeper can supply their needs iu a few minutes where it would require hours for the bees to gather it themselves. Put the new hive containing the swarm on the old stand, exactly where the old hive stood and place the old hive close beside the new one. The next morning as the bees go forth from this hive to work, they will nearly all return to the old place and enter the other hive, making that colony very strong, and in condition to store a great crop. The other colony will be so reduced in numbers that the bees will not be moved to swarm again and will fall in with the first queen that hatches and probably give much surplus. It will make a good, strong colony by the close of , the season. CARE FOR THE NEST. Ways in Which You Can Encourage the Hens to Lay. Do you know that you can train a hen to be a poor layer? Do you know that she can and will keep her eggs when ready to lay for a whole day? If this condition is allowed to continue she may and probably will and fewer eggs, finally becoming an indifferent layer, hence the necessity of having plenty of clean, comfortable nests. Did you ever notice how shyly the young pullet will go about looking for a secret place whore she may stealthily deposit her precious eggs? How very particular she Is about it! If there is an insufficient number of nests, or if they are uncle m, or too much exposed she Is likely, after some delay, to lay the egg on the floor and among the other bens, which may lead to egg eating. Comfort. Is one of the essentials of egg productions, and what is more necessary than handy, clean and com fortable nests0 Keeping Colony Record. The star colony In a bee keeper's apiary is the one that gives the most surplus honey and keeps it up the By this test every one of longest. us must test our colonies and try to bring all the rest up to Its standard, or at least as nearly so as possible. A record should be kept of all colonies, each hive having a number, says Bee Culture. In offering an apiary of over 70 colonies of bees recent"I have every ly, the owner wrote: queen clipped, and every queen and colony numbered, and keep a record of them, and know of what strain each queen Is, and what Is the record of each colony."
