What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Constable remembered turning into the driveway after his terrific exertion; re­ membered that the girl and her mother were standing upon the veranda ; that the former stretched out her hand to help him «nd the elder woman released a cutting remark. Then a servant brought a chair, •and. billows of nausea surged over him. Just as His consciousness \vi was launching, chair and nil, into space, Lara’s voice reached him again. * * * Then he was in the .hallway, through some miracle, and insisting most uncom­ monly that he was not to be taken into the library, but into the music room, be­ cause the windows there commanded the mountain. He awoke to the -interesting discovery that Miss Stansbury was fanning him. Presently she re-chilled a towel lb the Iced basin and folded it upon his fore­ head, now deliciously cool. “ It's mighty sweet of you to take care ■ot me this way,” he muttered gratefully. “ How is Pelee? How long have I been here? The last I remember, I was lost In the ball, and you found me.” “You’ve been here about three hours, Mr, Constable. Pelee is quiet again, but ■the whole world is white outside— a per­ fect blizzard of ash has fallen! They «a y a terrible thing has happened at the -extreme northern end of the city. The River Branch overflowed her bonks, and ran with boiling mud from the volcano. Thirty people are'reported killed and the Usine Guerin destroyed.” She thought he was considering the disaster in the silence which followed, but in reality he was battling with the old .problem. “ Miss Stansbury,” he said finally, “ is there anything a man possessed of full faculties could do, say or bring about that would induce your mother to spend the night off-shore?” She shook her head. - “ You know fhat the Madame could be brought in for the mails to-morrow morn­ ing.” “ I have taken the liberty to suggest that to mother,” Lara replied. “ She says that to-morrow will be time enough.” »♦M-I bb Rtnnwhurv. won't you put your- Inr -cablegram' ■ Ima\ü<re?rns 1 ipp 5 a ^ fia e i>~ t b e ’ Blanch might have eased the pressure upon the craters. There was no authority nor precedent for such a hope. I f Pe- lee’s fuse were burning shorter and short­ er toward a Ivrakatoan cataclysm, it was not for man to say what spark would shake the world. Still, Constable held the hope. He turned on the lights in the room. A ■elf in the care of Captain Negley to­ night? I hope I ’m wrong, but the Guerin disaster may be only a preliminary dem­ onstration— like tho operator experiment­ ing to find if it is dark enough to start the main fireworks. You know, I would stay ashore, and Negley is a good old man o f the sea.” “ Don’t you understand, Mr. Consta­ ble?” she said, in real distress for deny­ ing him so repeatedly. “ Don’t you see that such a thing would bring down a miserable scene upon our heads? Besides, I am not thinking of my own safety as such a paramount thing. I don’t want to be one of Job’s lone survivors. Mother and Uncle Joey and you must go— when I do.” ■The pale, searching face regarded her. door. It proved to be an answer to a message he bad sent to Basse Terre in the morning, regarding the movements of the Panther. “ Str. Panther arrived and departed here on time,” he read. There was strength in the word. The mail liner reasonably might be expected to call at Martinique with the dawn, according to schedule. The mails should be ready 'for distribution at nine. “ We’ll have luncheon aboard the Mad­ ame to-morrow,” Constable mused, “ and while the blessed maiden is passing cake and pouring tea, the Madame will be running like a scared deer, to hitch her­ self to the solid old Horn, built of rock and sealed with icebergs!” He shaded his eyes at the window, star­ ing beyond the city into the ashen shroud — Pelee’s flag of truce. “ Grand old mar­ tyr,” he murmured devoutly. “ Hang on, hang on!” There was a tap at the door, and Breen was admitted. — “ I haven’t seen much of you In the past three icons, miscalled days,” said Consta­ ble. \ I t is true. I have felt my own in­ consequence in the presence of the big drama here. It is your drama, Peter. Then, I have found a place of many mar­ vels.” “ Pere Rabearft’s?” “ None other. There is something like coolness in this thrice-burned isle. Also a maiden creature, half child, half wom­ an, wholly wonderful.\ “ I have been glad to see you make the best of things. Of course one can never tell on a cruise where one is to encounter a series of business obligations— such as here.” “ True again,” Breen said gravely. snfferable humor to my force o f character and extrême view».’’ x ' Constable translated Mondet’s account of the Guerin disaster, and his assur­ ances of 'the safety of Saint Pierre', so far as the mountain was concerned. “ Oh, the flakiness of that, French mind !” . he exclaimed. “ With a volcano in the pangs of dissolution, towering over - the-rcity, is apparently in dread of on earthquake ! * * * ‘Where on the island,’ thus he inquires editorially, ‘could a more secure place than Saint Pierre be found in the event of an earthquake visitation?’ ” -, Constable crushed the paper in -his band. He glanced at his watch and then at the mountain, from a habit now grav­ en deeply. t “ The northern end of Saint Pierre -is flooded out like an ant hill under a kettle boiling over,” he capitulated thoughtfully. “ The mountain is gathering for another demonstration. Let us flee with all,dis­ patch to the craters of the volcano, to Mondet certainly enthralls me. I must call upon him again. * * * Breen, is there any way to stimulate the distri­ bution of the Panther mailsi” 1 have been busy as that, but have accomplished nothing. Seriously, Breen, times are running close. Guerin’s the first volley. To tljink I haven’t been to the mountain; haven’t taken a photo­ graph or a note! My fellow researchers in things seismic will never forgive me for this. Breen,—I-thought I had a sci-~ entitle mind— thought that even« though I bulled in all else, I was a loyal geolo­ gist; but I have betrayed even that de­ cent instinct. Another man would have had the women away to sea and bo at­ tending the mountain now; bur' h e re\T am, a child with man’s tools, gassing the night through, and she— across the hall — marked, for all I know, for Pelee’» own! It’s good to talk, though.” There’s only one way when words fail, Again he was silent. His lips were shut, I Peter. I f the mountain won’t recede this eyelids half-closed. * * * A swift tintuition was borne to the woman. He -was about to renew the siege. She was »not ready, and shrank from being moved •to a decision which she had not formed :ln the privacy o f her own mind. The llast two days o f suffering had rendered flier strangely responsive to his mental ac­ tions. His quest had filled her brain with wonders, but they were not yet coalesced — impulses and inspirations without nnity, unbound as yet by judgment. She wanted to yield with grace, if it came to that, but not to be overthrown. His, hand «reached for hers, but'she drew away. “ Miss Stansbury ------ \ “ Please don’t say it n o w !” she whis­ pered swiftly, her words startling herself -quite as much as the man. “ These are euch dreadful hours! W e must think of the crisis— only o f that— putting behind all that passed last night 1 ” “ Until?” said Constable, sitting up. “ Oh, who can tell? One knows— Mr. Constable, isn’t it wicked o f you to mud­ dle me this way?” A smile from him had given her the «aving turn. The tension was eased. Now, as he held out his hand to her, she was not slow to accept it, or to miss the meaning of the compact. “ Pelee will be beyond the sky line for us all pretty soon,” he said cheerfully. “ We’ll be very good pals in the mean- from the maiden, you must snatch up the maiden and make a get-away from the mountain.” ‘I’m not pirate enough, Breen,\ Con­ stable replied wearily. “ By the way, I ’ m sending some of the natives of the city— the Women with babes— out to the Madame for cool air. There is no reason in the world why we shouldn’t entertain our friends of the shod. Soronia is too rare a creature to be immolated by Pe­ lee’s bursting boilers. She and the Pere might just as well share the benefits. You see, the .presence of others makes it possible. Attend to it, will you?” ‘Good old Peter,” Breen said softly; “ but I don’t think they would come. Who’d feed the little song birds?” “ Have her bring the birds along. They’ll die there!” “ I bad planned not to go to the little shop again, Peter.\ Constable turned upon him abruptly. 'Why?” said he. ‘You see, Peter, she is such a rare lit­ tle soul— askings so little and so ready to give her all tor the promise of a man — think o f it. I have found a good many playthings, pottering around this little sunsbot planet— clear little films they are now, which stick in the brain and won’t fade. Let me alone, Peter, and Ell wan­ der back to reason presently. A very ugly album is a sinner’s memory, and when C H A P T E R V II. Immediately after breakfast ConstabK drove down’ to the city to send out final orders to Captain Negley, and attend cer­ tain matters having to do with' the Mad- ame’s facilities for entertainment. -Uncle Joey was to go for the mails. .If. he could prevent, Constable was mlhdjpil that there should be no hitch nor tangle at the last moment. In spite of darkish apprehensions, his heart would burst,'now and then into singing, since he asked'but two hours more of old Pelee, upon whose summit was now written in lightning and blade cloud the ominous letters of Dis­ aster. The ladies were left to such graceful ministrations of Breen as were found needful. Mrs. Stansbury, having -gained her point, imposed no further delay 9 .,The eagerness of the daughter was controlled, but In no way concealed. The-past three days had left a pallor upon her face,, and shadows under her eyes, but the innate fineness of her features seemed intensi­ fied rather than diminished by physical suffering, and the more subtle perturba­ tions of the inner woman. '. “ When a strain brings out the splendor of a woman’s face, mark her well for a thoroughbred,” Breen had found occasion to whisper to his friend. The sentence was bou I’ s refreshment, as Breen intend­ ed it to be. Constable, indeed, was contemplating the full significance of the words, and their possible bearing upon his present and future, as he rode down the Morne d’Orange into the Rue Victor Hugo. The little black carriage of Father Damien was approaching, and, gripped by a su'd- den idea, Constable halted it, saying to the elder spirit of the parish, whom ‘ he had met at the plantation house: “ Father, take this two thousand francs and use it for the maintenance of the homeless refugees in Fort de France. I shall see -that mor«-funds-get-to-you -to-day A little way farther, another carriage approached, one of the public conveyances of the city this time. Behind the driver loomed the head and shoulders of a white man— hard head and broad shoulders^ th« »iBkt-oi ‘ ■whom-.mtrucivthe, mualc^£rom^ the brain of Constable, as a knife that IS, slashed across the strings of a harp. Both vehicles stopped abruptly. “ Well, I ’ve got you,” the broad individ­ ual remarked cheerfully. “ Where’s the other fellow?” Let it be known that the man whom Constable now, faced was the same ener­ getic person who occasioned discord on the Brooklyn pier, just as the Madame swung blithely forth into the harbor. Constable was thinking very rapidly. He felt prepared to commit murder rather than have his planB for the morning thrust aside. “ The other fellow?” he repeated gent­ ly. “ The man hidden in your cabin when yon cleared. His name is Nicholas Stem- bridge, if you don’t happdn to know,\ the stranger said, with some Impatience. “ Where is he?\ “Where you saw him last,\ Constable said, with sudden cordiality; “ and I want to state that I ’ m glad to see you— that is,” be added doubtfully, “ if you’ve come to take him away. If you’ve looked me up, you’ll have found that I ’ m usually ready to pay .in money, hide, or liberty, for the mistakes I make.” (T o be continued.) •time.

She is a natural optimist, and slow to lose faith in mankind.” Constable believed that Soronia had found her first lover in Breen, and he pitied the heart so suddenly impassioned and so swiftly dethroned of its dream. He remembered the face of Soronia in the court shadows, and his pity lingered. They talked until the Panther • lights shone afar in the offing, misty with dawn and volcano fog; then parted\ for' an “Perhaps the'mother birds are waiting I hour’« rest.

Few persons o f the North fully real­ ize the vast forw a rd qtride 3 that are being made by some of the SouttrAnrer- ican republics. Usually we think of these remote countries as being rather f untamed, both as to climate and peo­ ple, but that is a mistake, The sooner Americans- become__awakej_to_the_fact. that our South American republics o f­ fer great commercial possibilities the better it will be for us. Brazil, with Its vast territory and bountiful nat- ural,.resources, , 1 a .,beclnnias:.,to,.come, rapidly to the front as a nation of much more than minor importance in the world. One of the principal States in the Brazilian Federation of twenty is that o f Sao Paulo, the capital and chief city of which Is also called Sao Paulo. The picture shown above gives a good idea o f conditions there. The streets are mostly narrow, yet electric street cars and lights, coupled with oth­ er modern conveniences, give to the city quite a twentieth century look. The history o f Sao Paulo goes back many years. The city takes its name from the fact that the first mass was celebrated there Jan. 25, 1554, the feast of St. Paul’s conversion. Not until 1711 did the ,village, which had steadily though slowly Increased, become a city. In 1815, when Brazil was raised to the rank o f a kingdom and united to that o f Portugal, the city o f Sao Paulo was elected ns capital of the province bearing that name. I t kept this title after the proclamation o f Independence in 1822, and from the foundation of the republic o f B r a zil the city has been the capital o f the State o f Sao Paulo. Follow ing the trend o f modern, de- velopmentT the_StSte'of\Sa\ 0 ~Paul 07 \Sflg~ inally m e rely agricultural, has (been transformed into an important indus­ trial country, becoming more active and prosperous every day. During the .last..thlrtyrfi,v.e .years, as,a .consequence, o f the immigration o f European work­ men, numbers o f industries have been founded and developed. Conspicuous among these are the w eaving o f fab­ rics, the making o f hats,, shoes, beer, and alim entary pastes. There are also numerous iron foundries. The cotton plantations have been largely extended during the last few years. In the old colonial times the cotton fiber was woven in small es­ tablishments, but the first large spin­ ning mill was not founded before 1860, in the city o f Itu. There are now thir­ ty-one cotton mills In various parts of the State. The most important branch of. textile 'industry a fter the spinning o f cotton is the spinning o f jute/ This vegetable is used for the manufacture o f sacks In which the .coffee berry is exported, which explains the development o f this industry. A ll lute fibers nre Imported from abroad. W ith regard to com­ merce and industry it is easy to get an. idea o f their importance from the fact that in the city o f'S a o Paulo thero are 5,604 commercial «firm s-and-825 in­ dustrial establishments. Th e population 'of~fE e _ S tate ‘ had 'increased, from 100“ 537 in 1772 to 837,354 in 1872. Th e census o f 1900 shows 2,279,608, and it is sa fe to say that the total to-day would be very nearly three mUllons— a very.,striking gain. , Th e clim ate o f the d t y o f Sao Paulo Is extrem ely pleasant, especially dur­ ing the summer (Decem b er, January and Febru a ry), in spite o f sudden changes o f temperature. M ild temper­ ature, a very pure w a ter supply, sewers well distributed, a health office estab­ lished along modern lines, and the oth­ er physical conditions o f the country all tend to moke the capital o f the State and its surroundings a most healthy spot. Besides its salubrity, Sao Paulo can boast o f a handsome appear­ ance, growing commerce, and -all the conveniences o f a modern city., I t is every day extending its borders, and may, after R io de Janeiro, the B r a z il­ ian capital, nnd Buenos Ayres, in the Argentine Republic, be considered the most Important town in South Am erica.

Some interesting statistics are pub­ lished regarding the extent to which the German Emperor personally subsi­ dizes the Royal Opera House and the Royal Theater in Berlin, says'the New York Tim e s .; O f a , total of $625,000. expended on them by ’ the Prussian budget, $112,500 is contributed from the Kaiser’s private exchequer. .
