The architecture of Holland could be summed up in the one word honest Pretense is altogether lacking, hut to many people this is far from being a fault. The influence of Germany foas been greatly felt, owing, of course, to the close proximity of that country. The French feeling has also found its way into the Netherlands for the same reason; but the Italian influence has rarely been known, and its absence is always to be deprecated, says the Delineator. The Dutch are a neat, thrifty people and their houses express to a marked degree many of their traits. In the cities and small towns, for instance, the trim rows of private dwellings are particularly attractive, though built primarily for comfort and devoid of much adornment While Dutch house exteriors may not invariably' please the eye, it must be remembered that the Hollanders have greatly atoned for their lack of artistic feeling here by a splendid sense of interior decorating. Witness, for instance, their passion for delft porcelain and other ceramics, and the uses to which they have put them in their schemes for interiors. The? cannot then, be called a wholly Inartistic people. Their homes, on the contrary, are worthy of the closest study; and the duplication of a Dutch house, inside and out, should prove a fascinating idea. A Dutch kitchen, for example, Is always delightful; and the same feeling, carried through the entire house, would make something rarely distinctive in this country. The Power of Polltlce. Ellis H.

He often goes shooting in I Salem county, where he knows all the tnen in public life and likes them. , The sheriff of Salem county is a fine man, he said yesterday, "as fine a man as you will find anywhere. But once upon a time the sheriffs of Salem county were known to be mighty drinkers. 1 remember once, continued Park- a in Salem down "that farmer er, county had a calf which he wanted to teach to drink. He tried to get the animal to drink, but all his efforts were unavailing. hat do yon - think of . this, Mandyf he asked bis wife." This calf wont drink. "Well, Jake, said Mandy, thats too bad. But if you really want to learn that calf to drink, you better elect him sheriff of Salem county. "Which Bays a lot for the good old added Parker. Philadelphia days, Telegraph. s r Englands Village Theater. The village of Aldbourne, England, though It is seven miles from a railway station, has a theater of its own, which was opened recently with a performance of a three-ac- t cottage drama, "The Village Wedding." Charles the dramatist, who lives at Aldbourne, has transformed a barn in his grounds into The Aldbourne Village Theater, complete in every essential, even in the matter of an emergency exit, provided by the large double doors. The play, which is by Mr. was acted by a company of villagers, who spoke in the true Wiltshire dialect, and gave the piece an air of convincing realism.

Maitland dined with Bannerman, his atDan set out for Greenfields, to torney. get hia family Jewels. Maitland, on reaching home, surprised lady In gray, cracking the safe containing his gems. Bhe, apparently, took him for a crook, Daniel Anlsty. Maitland opened his safe, took therefrom the Jewels, and gave them to first her, forming a partnership In crime. The real Dan Anlsty, sought by police of the world, appeared. Maitland overcame him. He and the girl went to New York In her auto. He had the. Jewels. She was to meet him that day. A Mr. Snaith Introduced himself as a detective. To shield the girl In gray. Maitland, about to show him the Jewels, supposedly lost, was felled by a blow from "Snalth's cane. The latter proved to be Anlsty himself and he secured the gems. Anlsty. who was Maitland's double, masqueraded as the latter. The criminal kept Maitlands engagement With the girl In gray. He gave her the gems. The girl In gray visited Maitland's apartments during his absence and returned gems. Maitland, without cash, called up his home and heard S woman's voice expostulating. Anlsty, disguised as Maitland, tried to wring from her the location of the gems. A crash was heard at the front door. Maitland overwhelmed the crook, allowing him to escape to shield the young woman. The girl In gray made her escape, Jumping into a cab. An Instant later, by working a ruse, Anlsty was at her side. He took her to Attorney office. There, by torture, he tried In vain to wring from her the location of the gems. He left her a moment and she 'phoned O'Hagan, only getting in the words: "Tell Mr. Maitland under the brass bowl, the hiding place in the latters rooms, when Anlsty heard her words. Bannerman also was revealed as a crook. He and Anlsty set out to secure the gems and leave town. The girl waa till Imprisoned. "Mad New-Yor- CHAPTER XV. The Price. Slowly Maitland returned to the study and replaced the lamp upon his desk; and stood briefly in silence, long chin, fingers stroking his his face a little thin and a gleam of pain In his eyes. He sighed. So she was gone! He laughed a trace harshly. This surprise was nothing more than he might have discounted, of course; he had been a fool V to expect anything els of her, ha was enjoying only his just deserts both for having dared to beliove that the good in human nature (particularly in woman's nature) would respond to decent treatment, and for having acted on that asinine theory. So she was gone, without a word, without a sign! He sat down at the desk, sidewise, e one arm extended along its edge, 'drumming out a dreary little tune on the hard polished wood; and thought it, all over from the beginning. Nor spared himself. Why, after all, should It be otherwise? Why should she have stayed? Why should he compliment himself by believing that there was aught about him visible through the veneer acquired In a score and odd years of existence, to attract a purposeless young and pretty womans heart? He enumerated his qualities specifically; and condemned them all. Imprimis, he was a conceited ass. A fascinating young criminal had but to toss her heed at him to make him think that she was pleased with him, to make him forget that she was what she was and believe that, because he was willing to stoop, she was willing to climb. And he had betrayed himself so mercilessly! How she must have laughed in her sleeve all the time, while he pranced and bridled and preened himself under her eyes, blinded to his own idiocy by the flame of a sudden infatuation how she must have laughed! Undoubtedly she bad laughed; and, measuring his depth or his shallowness had determined to use him to her ends. Why not? It had been her business, her professional duty, to make use of him In order to accomAnd because plish her plundering. she had not dared to ask him for the Jewels when he left her In the morning, she had naturally returned In the evening to regain them, very confident, doubtless, that even If surprised a second time, she would get off scot-freUnfortunately for her, this fellow Anlsty had Interfered. Maitland presumed cynically that he ought to be grateful to Anisty. The unaccount able scoundrel! Why had he returned? HSw the girl had contrived to escape was, of course, more easy to un deretand. Maitland recalled that sudden clatter of hoofs In the street, and he had only to make a trip to the window to verify his suspicion that the cab was gone. She had simply overheard his concluding remarks to the cabby, and taken pardonable advantage of them. Maitland had footed the bill. She was welcome to that, however. He, Maitland, was well rid of the whole damnable business. Yes, 'jewels and all! What were the Jewels to him? Beyond their sentimental associations, he did not hold them greatly In prize. Of course, Bince they had been .worn by his mother, he would spare no or effort to trace and them, for that dim sainted memorys lake.
