been   set  to  watch  her  manners  at

The  lillle girl,   Mile,   QlSOle,   Is  IhM
daughter of a Paris doctor.     He and \

ago, and the mother, who was given)
the  custody  of the child,   has  since
married again.   The father petitions
to havo the child given Into his care,
on the nround   thai    Bhe   is   being

Philosophy of Undertaking
Ours Is a solemn business, said an
undertaker, and yet there happens ln
;t somethin:; over which all concerned
can reus uably be chot-rful.
We onco had a customer who had
lost his tvife and who came to us to
liury t,er. which we did. After the
funeral ne came back to us. He had
selected the casket In which his wife
wbb burled and now he bought one
lust like it for himself. He was a
man ln health, with no prospect of
death so far as that was concerned,
but he was greatly grieved and cast
down over the death of his wife, and
when he should die he wanted to be
burled In a casket juat like that In
which we had burled her. So ho
bought the casket and we held it tor
him.
Something more than a year after
he met another woman with whom he
fell ln love and whom he married;
end after that we got a. letter from
lilm saying:
Sell my casket, I've no use for lt
tow.
BUZZ GIVES WARNING
When Any Person Comet Into Apartment tke Fact la Indicated
Tho ancient profession of burgling
has receive, yet another shrewd blow.
So has lliriing, perhapB.
One of the latest discoveries of
electrical Bclenco is a djnico whereby
the presence of a stranger iu a strongroom or ifiiy other kind of room, how-
over many miles away, can ho detected by tho aid of au ordinary telephone r.eelvei.
I hava*) been experimenting with lho
high-frequency current which Mr
Thorite, tells- us will mako chickens
grow an! kill cheese miles In thirty
.seconds, S'lid tl.e young electrician who
has Invented tho new thlcf-scarlng
apparatus to a reporter yesterday.
Whllo Investigating the nature of
tho discharge-] used for electrifying
certain things I found thut when tlio
eage in which 1 placed them was occupied by some person or cheese, or
even a few choe.se mites, the measuring instrument Indicated the fact,
I tested tiie degree of variation by
passing ilie current first through the
cage and then through a sensitive
crystal to a delicate telephone receiver., Th.'i'e was a distinct change in
tno buzzing sound heard through tho
telephone when tho cage wbb respectively occupied and unoccupied.
It ls my belief that any room could
be so fitted with collectors connected
with a crystal ot l'orro-sillcon or car-
burundum just outside—they need
only be single loops of plain wire each
side of the room, though tho room
itself would ulso have to ho wound
round with a few turns of concealed
copper wire—that the presence of a
man or woman In that room would
be evident to a person miles away listening at a telephone receiver connected with the crystal.
A high-frequency current would, of
course, lu-.ve to bo constantly passing
through '.he room. lt would cost no
more than a burning lamp there.
A rich hanker, let us suy, listens at
his private telephone connected with
crystal and strongroom. . He hears
the normal buzzing caused by the
high- frequency current, and knows
that his strongroom, crammed with
bonds and bullion, Is at peace.
Suddenly the buzzing alters; lt becomes a little slower and lower. A
man has entered the strongroom and
Is attracting some of. the current to
himself. The buzzing becomes still
slower and lower. He Is not alone!
Another miscreant has entered the
room. Then the banker has only to
ring up the police.
He goes on listening, and hears
the variations in the buzzing which
indicate the departure ot first one and
Ihen the other villlnn. If he has
the neces-iEiry appliances fitted, he may
have meanwhile pressed a button and
caused a photograph of the thieves to
be taken automatically ln thc strongroom.
Such a device need not 4>c costly,
and there must be many peoplo who
would be glad to know sometimes
whether a particular room was entirely unoccupied, or occupied by ono
person only, or by two or more. The
apparatus can be constantly operating
without the persons In the room having any knowledge of Its existence.
I nm hoping to achieve the same
results by wireless methods, and in
that even, i* may be possible at last
for husbands and wives tb know when
their absent spouses are lonely and
when thev are not.

Tutor to Young China
When the Chinese Boxers were be;
sieging the foreign legations ln Pekln twelve years ago, and an ominous
silence convinced the world that rebel bullets and swords had completed
their cruel work, the London Times
published an extensive obituary notice ot Its distinguished correspondent
Dr. George Ernest Morrison, who hnd
described the scenes of rioting and
bloodshed almost up to the hour communications ceased. He has now
been appointed adviser to tho new
Republic,
No newspaper. It said, anxious to
serve the hest interests of the country has ever had a moro devoted, a
more fearless aud a more able servant, than Morrison. Willi extraordinary judgment amounting almost to
intuition, in a i atmosphere which he
used himself to describe ns saturated
with lies, he discriminated with unfailing accuracy between what was
true nnd what was false. Wllh never
a penny o' secret service money at
his command his own shrewdness
and resourcefulness, his untiring Industry, his Infinite rapacity for taking

MARRY YOUNG
The Rev. C. H. Grundy Gives Soma
Matrimonial Advice
Early marriages are better for morality, belter for tho State, belter for
society, tor domesticity, ror the
growth ot personal character, and hotter for tho children, who will thus,
when growing up, rejoice in parents
who can bo keen and interesting companions.
Thus said Rev. C. II. Grundy, M. A.,
well-known as a-locturer and tho popular vicar of St. Peter's nrockley.
England, to a representative a few
days ago
nut do not therefore think, lie went
on, thnt I am encouraging the youthful folly ot Improvident marriage,
which bo ofton lends to misery.
At the samo time, why should people want to stnrt married life on a
grand and showy scale instead ot be-
ng cont'nt to work their way up hy
degrees. Tlio real fault is the extravagance ot bachelorhood. The word
economy lis not In the dictionary of
many men until they think of marriage. All men should begin to prepare financially for marriage lho moment they begin to cam money. The
habit of thrift thus formed will be
quite as valuable and helpful as the
money saved.
You say that perhaps a girl haB
been brought up according to sland-
ards of comfort that necessltato a
certain salary ln lhe matt she Is to
marry, In order that she Bhall not
suffer by the contract; and I mado
lt a big poln1: at one of my recent lee-
tures lhat a register should be kept
containing the names of young ladies
wlio are willing to tako husbands who
possess particular incomes. Thus
the men would know which are the
$1500 or the (1700 a year girls, and
comprehend in which section to look.
That proposal was not received with
favor by some ot thoao present, but
I may say that my matrimonial bureau—which is really designed to do
nothing more than bring young
couple together by correspondence
—has proved successful beyond my
expectations. Already 1 havo had
*.40 lette?-—Borne from the ColonieB—
and one happy pair wlll be leavllng
shortly to mr.ke a home in Australia.
Do I advocate State encouragement
or regulation of early marriages? No
Blr. I most emphatically do sot; we
cannot have the policeman to control
our love affairs. But what I do wish
to insist upon Ib that parents might
do much more than thoy do to foster
early marriages. For the longer I
live the more I am shocked at the
selfishness of parents; they not only
keep the girls about them in the home
instead of letting them earn their livings, but too often they seem to take
a selfish delight la. opposing their natural matilmonlal yearnings.
The father likes to take hfs charjn-
Ing daughter about with him, or the
mother Is anxious to make her assist
in the household management—and,
in any case, they do practically nothing to help her to meet eligible
partners And yet lt Is often the
case that such home-staying girls
know next to nothing of practical domestic work or economy—how to market wisely, how to test the goodness
of articles before buying what quantities ot things are requisite for varying numbers ot peoplo, and so on—
and thus they go on and on, Immersed
ln petty pursuits, until they are really
not eligible as wives.
In my opinion, parents can Hyirdly
begin too early to train their children
for marriage. What? No, I don't
think I go quite so far as Lecky, who
advocated child-marriage, under certain conditions and strict supervisions; but I do think every man ought
to marry the moment he has sufficient
means, and a sense of responsibility
and has found Miss Wright.
Yes, I am aware that child-marriages
have been allowed In Turkey, and
that In Spain and Switzerland, for example, a girl of twelve Is considered
of marriageable age. Uut I do not
make a point of age so much as of
the fulfilment of the above conditions;
and when I hear people saying that
marriage Is too responsible an undertaking, nnd that it may handicap a
man ln his business career, I tell htm
that It ls only whon a man ls faced hy
the imperative necessity for effort that
he puts his best foot forward.
No, sir. I am not a relation of that
ancient kill-joy, tho world-renowned
Mrs. Grundy! Nor am I by any
means a kill-joy. You may sum my
motto up In a phrase; Prepare the
young with all possible care for the
matrimonial plunge!

Tho concert of the powers ln China
is a mere* delusive screen, agreeable
ln Bound, very tickling to the Ignorant car, calculated to draw tho cheers
of the groundlings, but which really
serves only as a blind to ourselves, as
a cover for ministerial Inaction as a
sounding board to tell our foes of our

are enabled to checkmate our policy.

Raw, Infbmed, Itching Skin Is Soothed and Healed by
DR. CHASE'S OINTMENT
Barber's Itch ls a form ot Ringworm, which when pneo started, ls
most annoying and unsightly, and
most difficult to cure. Barbers often
refuse to shave anyone having this
disease, '.or fear ot passing lt on to
other customers.
But you can euro Barber's Itch and
keop the skin wonderfully soft and
healthy by applying Dr. Chase's Ointment. Just read what this teacher
has to say about the healing power
of Dr. Chase's Ointment.
Mr. Chas. C, Poirler, Upper Cara-
quet, N.B., writeB—"Two years ago
while teaching at Shlppegnn I caught
Barber's Itch. ,'• friend told mo Dr.
Chase's Ointment woulil euro me, as
it had him. When I went for a box
I thought It dear, but when I found
how good lt was I thought it cheap.
"Not only was I cured hy that
single box, but It also cured two of
my pupils, and this too quickly to be
believed. One of them, a girl, had
a running soro on the chin, which the
doctor had tried in vnln to cure. The
other had a sore on the ear. I can
certify to the cure of these cases."
Whorcver there is Itching skin or
a sore that refuses to heal you can
apply Dr. Chase's Ointment with positive assurance that the results will
be entirely satisfactory. The soothing, healing power of this great ointment Ib tmly wonderful. liOc. a box.

Hot-Weather Housewifery
It ls every woman's ambition to look
spotlessly fresh and dainty in warm
weather To do this she must have
a constan- supply of clean blouses,
and If she be thrifty, these she will
wash herself.
For this soap-jelly will be found to
bo Invaluably economical and simple,
Tho soap should be shredded Into a
basin, aud allowed to melt until clear
of lumps, lt Bhould then be run off
Info a Jar, Whon using, In a quart
of wuter a quarter ot a pound of the
soap-Jelly will be sufficient.
Then, too, nothing looks more dowdy than a gown which has faded. A
little salt In the wator will set blue,

from changing Ihelr shades.
It may uot be known, also, lhat
white wasli.itg gloves should always
bo allowed (o dry with a little snip
in them. This prevents tindtio all'-
fenlng. Thoy shoull bo drawn over
the hands slightly damp to pull them
Into shape.
Whito veils, when washed, should
neither be mangled nor Ironed. Carefully Btrotched, they should be wound
tightly round a tube of cardboard
or paper, whllo still damp. When dry,
thoy will be observed to havo suffered neither from tcurB nor stiffness.

A So. Dak.  woman, aftor thirteen 1

last shipment from Mocha of local1
grown effeo took place that inanyi
years ago
This Is no new.! to those who know
coffee. Wc havo oft been told that
Iho cute Braslllaiis raise a special
Moclmesquo bean, which they ship to
Aden, whence lt la re-Bblpped to the
world under the magic name of Mocha. Thn world has looked blandly
on nt this, hus bought coffee, drank lt
and tractably called It Mocha. Other
coffee countries may liavo similar
schemes.
In a w.rd Mocha coffeo has ceased
to be a goagraphlcul name and has
become a mere trade name for a trade

How to Make Fringe Plumes
Tho woman  whoso purse ia slim
and whose desires are great will welcome tho fact that feathers made uf
fringe are fashionable,
A fringe feather Bounds funny, does
It not? Rut it Ls not a bit queer-
looking; unusual, perhaps, and very
graceful. Bay* The Philadelphia Xorth

What  Lite Aboard  Ship  Means to a
Woman
Many women are Inollned to think
lhat to becomi a stewardess on board
ihtp is the easiest thing in lhe world,
whereas, in reality, lhe work is by no
moans easy, nor are such positions
tightly obtained. For the right woman, tho life of a stewardess Is fascinating to a degree, giving opportunities of travel which otherwise
would bo debarred to the ordinary
woman; but it is most essential lhat
only the right kind of woman shall
attempt to take up such work
Mere love of travel is not sufficient qualification. The stewardess
must lifive some practical knowledge
of travelling, must be physically
strong, and a first-rate sailor, and,
above all. must at all times be unfailingly cheerful and tactfully Byinpv>.
etlc.
The stewardess needs also to possess the gift of reticence, since rarely
a voyage passes without the stewardess being made the recipient of the
confidence's of some women travel'..1.'*..
Preference, too, is always given to
women who have had some hospital
training. One line, at least, makes
this an indispensable qualification fori
their stewardesses so lhat it is worth;
while any woman thinking of adopting]
i the work first to lake a short hospital |
I course.
1 Tbe stewardess gets splendid Oppor*
| tunity for travelling about the world
t'ut this is b" no means synonymous
with seeing th.- world. During a
voyage tiiere are few people on board
wlio have te work harder than does
the stewardess, and she gets very
small time for sight-seeing. As a
sort of compensation, she has fine op-
portunitie-r for studying character--
especially female character- -and obtains a very diversified knowledge of
human natur? by the time siie has
taken a few voyages.
As a general thing, it Is preferred
only to appoint experienced women as
stewardesses The Peninsular and
Oriental Steamship Line, for instance
only appoint women between twenty*
five and thirty-five in tbis capacity
: and this age-limit can be taken as a
very fair average.
The pav of a stewardess varies from
two pounds a month upwards. There
are, of course, no expenses to be in*!
curred while sailing, though between
voyages the stewardess has to keep
herself ontirely, since it is the general
rule to sign on afresh for each voyage. Beyond actual wanes, a stewardess makes a lott of money by rips.
since it is tbe recognise-j thinu for women pa-seu.-Ters to reward the stewardess. The amount varies, but a
s;ewardoss reckons to make from five
to twenty pounds on a single voyage..;
Mosr    steamship   companies   have
their stewardesses dress in a sort of
r     , hospital-nurse way while on duty.   In-:
most ias-j deed( t,lp ]ifo _f _ stewaniMa may be
i compared to that of a hospital nurse: i
' it is equally strenuous, mentally and)
physically, full of an infinitude or all
| sorts  of duties,  and  often calls  for
most seli'-saerillciug effort.
The stewardess must always think
of others before herself, and, whatever Ihn Irritation, must not suffer
herself to lose her temper. Lost
temper usually means lust work.
One-half nf the world does not know
how lhe other half lives nnd, morn's
Vie pity, dooan't enre.

Shades In the Sea
Althou.'Ji it la common definition to
rail anything fl.'a green, most peoplo
hesitate between blue and sea green
when nsked to sny Ihe color of sea-
water. As a mailer of fact the
quantities of blue and green sea water
are pretty equally divided. By na-
lure sre.1,., sea-water grows blue according t > the BaltneBS of It.
Thus, the Arctic waters are as green
as the grass of Ireland, while the Atlantic Is decidedly blue—though not
ns blue as the Mediterranean Sea.
which receives practically no fresh
wafer al alt. Beyond blue and green
i1 la no unknown thing for sea-water
to be otherwise colored. Frequently
Htretchea of the sea will turn n radiant snow-white, and no scientist yet
bas been abl"- to give a reason for It.
Equally unsatisfactory are ihe rea-
Bons glveti 'or the sudden changing
of son-water to an inky-black shade,
tis happened a few years ago In tho
Bay of Santa t'ruz. Bed and yellow
sea-water Is comparatively well
| known through tho Chinese Yellow
Mea and Ibe Bed Sea.
Various Interesting reasons are
given for the waters being BUCh colors, bul scientifically tho shades are
declared to be duo entirely to peculiar vegetable growths beneath the respective  wa'ers.
Information Concerning The Part You
Forget With
Moraeory is a subject that still baffles tbo world of science. Nobody
can define the part of the brain by
which it is worked. But lota of
curious lilllo facts have been brought
to light Ly experts in tbls brunch of
psychology,
Your iremoory. for Instance, works
best iu tho morning, whllo your mind
is fresh. It is at its worst iu the
evening.
It varies, toe, according to tbo stato
of your blood In peoplo troubled
with anaemia or dyspepsia tlio memory is usually below the average.
The memory improves under stimulants, such as coffee, though, of courso
only temporarily, Sedative drugs,
sucb as brom.de, have tho opposite
effect, Medical men have sometimes
after recommending tho regular use
of brom.de iu cases of nervous rest-
leBsnecs and Insomnia, to tell tho
patient to s'op at once, owing to Ihe
memory steadily growing feebler.
While anaemia and dyspepsia weaken tbe memory,as u whole, they have
not the grotesque results that fevers
sometimes have. in one case, famous lu medical history, a distinguished
scholar after recovering from a severe
fever was unable for the rest of his
life to pronounce, remember, or nude-stand the letter !•'; and there have
been other case.-; equally curious.
A soldier who had to have a tiny
piece of liis brain removed during tlic
Soutb AM can War recovered perfect
health men'ally aud physically, except tor Ihe fact that he was never
afterwards ablt to remember the
meaning ci tiie numbers live and
seven.
Some .iiLeases, on the other hand,
have been known to do tiie mentor)
h loi Ol good, The chief Of these is
smallpox There are hundreds of
case.*; on record tn Which quite poor
memort?j have been turned by tbls
dread disease Into long and amaaing-
ly accurate ones.
One thing that scleuco has made
clear is tha' we never really forget
anything. Everything we have done
or seen or said from our earliest childhood is btored away somewhere in our
beads, even though we may think we
have forgotten tbem for ever.
But it needs something very extraordinary to uulock this store-house.
The shock ot a narrow escape from
death sometimes does it. People
who have beeu within a hair's-breadth
of death Mid lived to tell the tale, have
often sta-ed that all the Incidents of
their lives, even the most trifling,
have flashed across their minds In a
second, indd -.his is based on scientific truth.
Chloroform, too. brings back things
that bave been forgotten for years.
.\ man under chloroform will often
siDg the pongi he used to sing when
a tiny boy.
There is a curious sort of memory
sometimes known as muscle memory.
Wiih practice, thc parts of the body-
seem to develop a sort of memory
of their own. An experienced bath-
attendant, for Instance, can often
guess the temperature of water to
within half a degree, after simply dipping his hand In it. while the ordinary
man is as likely as not to be ten, or
even twenty, degrees out. An experience! tobacconist, too, could give
you your ounce of tobacco pretty accurately without using the scales at
all.
There aro all sorts of curious diseases of the memory. If you are
unfortunate enough tb have a bad
nervous breakdown, you mny be
startled to find that, though you can
still read and understand what Is said
to you. you bave forgotten how to
write, and what words to use when
you aro talking. Wben you want to
say, I'm feeling better to-day, you will
forget the right wonts and say, Walk,
come, preach, or something equally
absurd, md get very angry with yourself. And, when you are recovering
you will observe the curious fact that
you get, the right ufle of your verbs
flrst, then your adjectives.
Sometimes when you are in a part
of the country that is new to you,
you are suddenly startled by the Idea.
"Why I've seen this place before!"
You know you have not, yet tho scene
seems familiar. Some scientists account for th.a feeling by suggesting
that one of the two halves of tbe brain
baa been working a fraction of a second faster than the other. Another
suggested explanation Ih that lt is a
case of financial memory.

Which kind of a culvert
does your waggon cross?
DOES the road you use pass over rickety,
dangerous wooden culverts, that are constantly in need of repairs and often washed
away entirely? Or is it carried safely across the low
places by modern, everlasting culverts?  Build your
CULVERTS OF CONCRETE
which not  only cannot be  washed  away, but
actually grow stronger with age and use.
Every farmer ones it to himself to insist that the
money he pay*, for road-taxes be ipent to the best advantage. An a ratepayer, he is entitled to the best roads that
, can be made with that money. When culverts are washed
out, and the road rendered impassable, he not only suffers
inconvenience but may also be caused financial loss by
inability to get necessary supplies in time for spring planting. And at best, with wooden culverts, part of the money
that should be used to make better roads must be spent
ever}' year for repairs.

When you gave me a rose and I still
hear you say
Very softly, and ln your own dear

V- Myself
HAVE kept one secret In tho course at my Hte. I
am a bashful man. Nobody would suppose it, no-
body ever OoeB suppose It, nobody over did suppose
it, but I nm naturally a bashful man. Tbls ta tbo
gecret whloh 1 havo nover breathed until now.
It bnppenod fn'tlio momorublo year when 1 parted
forever from Angola Lealh, whom I wns shortly to
have married, on making the dlsoavory thnt sho preferred my bosom friend. From our school days 1 had
freely admitted Kdwin, In- my own mind, to bo far
superior to myself; nnd, thougb 1 was grievously
•wounded at heart, 1 felt iho preference to be natural,
and tried to forgive them both. It whs under these
blrouinstances that j resolved to bo to America—on
my way to lho devil.
Communicating my discovery neither to Angola
nor to Edwin, but resolving? to wrlto each of thom
•ii affecting loiter conveying my blessing and for-
glvenoss, which the steam tender for shore would
carry lo the pout when I myself should bo bound
for lho new world, far beyond recall-1 sny, looking
up my grief In my own breast, and consoling myself
aa I could witli tbe prospect of being generous, I
quietly left all I bad held denr, and started on tho
Besolato Journey I  have mentioned.
It wanted nine daya lo lho end of the month and
•nd of the yeur. The postofDco packet for the United
States wns to depart from Liverpool, weather permitting, on the flrst of the ensuing month, and I had
"'We are going to be married, Cobbs, at
Gretna Green'"
the intervening time on my hands. I had taken this
Into consideration, and bad resolved to make a visit
to a certain spot (which I need not name) on tho
farther borders of Yorkshire, It was endcured to
tne by my having flrst Been Angola at a farmhouse,
Sn that plate, and my-molancholy was gratified by tho
Idea, of taking a wintry leave of lt beforo my expatriation. I ought to explain lhat, to avoid being
•ought out before my resolution should lmvo been
rendered Irrevocable by being carried into full effect,
I had written to Angela overnight, in my usual manner, lamenting thut urgent business, of whirl, she
Bhould know ull particulars by-and-by—took me unexpectedly away from her for a week or ten days.
There was no northern railway at thut time, nnd
in Us placo thero wero (stage coaches; which 1 occasionally find myself, In common with some other
people, affecting to lament now, but which everybody dreaded as a very serious penance then. I liad
secured the box seat on the fantest of these, nnd
my business ln Fleet street wns to get into a cub
with my portmanteau, so as to make lho best of my
•way to the Peacock at Islington, where I was to join
thla coach.
When I got to the Peacock—where T found everybody drinking hot purl, in self-preservation-*-! asked
If there wore an Inside- seat to spare, l thon discovered that, Inside or out, 1 was the only passenger.
This gave mo a still livelier Idea of lho great Inclemency of tho weather, since that couch always-.
loaded  particularly well.    However,  I  took  a little
furl (which I found uncommonly good), nnd got.
nto the Coach, When I was seated, they built mv
lip wilh draw to the waist, and, conscious of making
a rather ridiculous appearance, 1 begun my Journey.

that We were changing horses somewhere When 1

Then, Indeed, I found tho whllo down falling fast

know that wu wore scores of miles behindhand, und
Chat our caso was growing worse every hour.
We performed Auld Ijing Hyno tho Whole day;
seeing nothing, out of towns nnd vllluges, but the
«rack or stoats, hares and foxes, nnd sometimes of
birds. At 0 o'clock ut night, on a Yorkshire moor, n.

SECOND BRANCH
The Boots
WHERE liad he been in his time? he repeated,
when 1 asked him lho question. Lord, he had
been everywhere, What wna tlio euriousest thing he
liad seen? Supposing a young gentleman not 8 yenr
old was to run away with a fine young woman of 7,
might I think lhat a queer start?   Certainly.
Master Harry Walmer's father, you see, ho lived
at the -E.ln.scs, down away by Shooter's Hill here,
bIx or seven miles from Lunnon. He Was uncommon
proud of Master Harry, as was his o.ilj child; still he
kept command over the child, and the child was a
child, and it's to be wished more of them was.
How did Boots happen to know all this? Why,
through being undergardener. Of course, he couldn't
bo undergardener, -without getting acquainted with
the ways of tho family. Even supposing Master
Harry hadn't come to him one morning early, and
said, "Cobbs, how should you ."pell Norah, if you was
asked?" and then began cutting It in print all over
lhe fence.
Really, It waa pretty to see them two mites a
going about tho place together, deep in love. Ono
day he stops, along with her, where Boots was hoeing weeds in the gravel, and says, speaking up,
"Cobbs," he says, "I like you. You're going away,
Rln't you, Cobbs? Would you like another situation?" "Well, sir, I shouldn't object, if it was a good
'un." "Then, Cobbp,'' Buys he, "you shall he our head
gardener when We are married." And lie tucks her
in her little sky-blue mantle, under his arm. and
walks away.
If I was to ask Boots how it happened lhat lie was
e'going to leave that place Just, at the present time,
well, ho couldn't rightly answer me. But you see
ho was younger then, nnd he wanted change.
Well, sir! Boots left the Blmsea when bis time
was up, and Master Harry, he went down to the old
lady's at York, which old lady would have given that
>*hlld the teeth out of her head (if she had had any),
ahe was so wrapped up in him. What does that infant do—for Infant you may call him, and be within
lhe mark—but cut away from that old lady's with
his Norah, on a expedition to go to Gretua Green and be
married!
.Sir, Boots was at ibis identical Holly-Tree Inn
(having loft It several limes since to better himself,
but always come back through one thing or another),
"when, one summer afternoon, the couch drives up,
and out of the coach gets them two children. The
guard says to our governor, "I don't quite make out
these little passengers, but the young gentleman's
words was, lhat they was to be brought here." Tho
young gentleman gets out; hands Ills lady out; gives
lhe guard something for himself; says lo our governor, "We're to stop here tonight, please, Sitting
room and two bedrooms will be required. Chops and
cherry pudding for two!" nnd tucks her, In ber llttlo
nky-bluo mantle, under his arm, and walks inlo tho
house mueh bolder than brass.
Boots leaves me to judge what tho amazement of
Hint establishment was, when these two tiny creatures all nlono by themselves was marched into the
Angel—much more so when he, who hnd seen them
without their seeing him, give the governor his views,
of the expedition they wus upon. "Cobbs," says Hie
governor, "if this is so, I must set o(t myself to
York and quiet their friends' minds. In which case
yon must keep your eye upon 'em, nnd humor 'em,
till 1 come back. But before I take those measures,
Cobbs, I should wish you to tind from themselves
-whether your opinion is correct." "rilr, to you," says
Cobbs, "that shall be done directly.'*
So Boots goes upstairs to the Angel, and there
he ltnds Master Harry, ou a e-normous sofa—immense at any time, but looking like the grent bed
of Ware compared with blm—a drying the eyes of
Miss Norah with his pocket handkercher. Their little
legs was entirely off thc ground, of course, and It
really ls not possible for Boots to express to me how
email them children looked.
"It's Cobbs! It's Cobbs!" cries Master Harry, and
comes running to him, nnd catching hold of Ills hand.
Miss Norah comes running to hliu on t'olhcr side, nud
catching hold of his t'other hand, and they both
Jump for Joy.
"I seo you a getting out. sir," says Cobb?, "I
thought it was you. I thought I couldn't ho mistaken
ln your height and figure. What's the object of your
journey, sir?—Matrimonial?"
"Wo are going to be married. Cobbs, at Gretna
Green," returned tho boy.    "Wo have run  away on
sheets of writing paper folded up surprisingly small,
a orange and a Chancy mug with his name upon it.
"What may be tho exact natur of your plans, sir?"
says Cobbs.
"To go on," replied lhe boy—which the courage
of that boy was something wonderful!-—"in the morning, and be married tomorrow.''
"Just so, sir," says Cobbs. "Would It meet your
views, Blr, if I was to accompany you?"
When Cobbs said this, Ihey both jumped for joy
again and cried out, "Oh yes. yes, Cobbs!   Yes'."
"Woll, Blr!" says Cobbs. "If yon will excuse my
having1 the freedom lo give an opinion, what 1 should
. recommend would be thla. I'm acquainted with a
' pony, sir, which, put In a pheayton that l could bor-
' row, would take you and Mrs. Harry Walmers, Junior,
1 myself driving, lf you approved), to the end of your
journey In a very short space of time. 1 am not
altogether sure, sir, that tills pony will be at liberty
tomorrow, but even if you liad to wait over tomorrow for him, it might he worth your while. As to
the small account here, sir, lu case you was to find
yourself running at all short, that don't signify; because I'm a part proprietor of this inn, and it could
stand over."
Boots assures me that when they clapped their
hands and jumped for Joy again, and called him
"Good Cobbs!" und "Dear Cobbs!" and bent across
him to kiss one another in the delight nf their confiding hearts, he felt himself the meanest rascal for
deceiving 'em that, ever was born,
"Is there anything yon want just nt present, sir?"
says Cobbs, mortally nshamed of himself.
"We should like some cakes after dinner,"
answered Master Harry, folding his arms, putting
uut one leg, and looking straight at lilm,. "and two
apples—and jam. With dinner wc should like to
liavo toast-and-water. But Norah has always been
accustomed to half a glass of currant wine at dessert.
And so hnve I."
"lt shall be ordered at tho bar, sic," says Cobbs;
and away he went.
Boots has the feeling as fresh upon him at this
minute of speaking as he had then, that he would
far rather havo liad It out in half a dozen rounds
with the governor than Imve combined with him;
and that Iio wished with ull his heart there was any
Impossible placo where those iwo babies could mako
an impossible marriage, und live impossibly happy
ever afterwards. However, as It couldn't be, he went
into the governor's plans, and the governor set off
for York iii  half an  hour.
The way In which the women of that houso—without exception—every one of 'em—married nnd single
— took to thut boy when ihey heard the story. Boots
considers surprising, it was as much as be could
do to keop Vm from dashing- Into the room and kissing him. Thoy climbed up ail sorts of places, at the
risk of their lives, to look nt lilm through a pane

In thn evening, Boots went Into lhe room to
see how the runaway couple was getting on, Tlio
gentleman was on the window-scat, supporting tho
lady In his arms. She had tears upon hor fa.ee, and
wus lying, very tired and half asleep, with her head
upon his shoulder.
"Mrs. Harry Walmers, Junior, fatigued, sir?" says
Cobbs,
"Yes, she Is tired, Cobbs; but she Is not used lo
he away from home, and she hns been in low spirits
again. Cobbs, do you think you could bring a biffin,
pleaSe?"
"I ask your pardon, sir," says Cobbs. "What was
It you—?"
"I thlnlt a Norfolk billln would rouse her, Cobbs.
She Is very fond of them."
Boots withdrew in search of tho required restorative, and, when  he   brought   It in,  tho   gentleman
"'Charley, forgive me!,'"
PUrpOSO. Norah has been In ralher low spirits, Cobbs;
but she'll be happy now wo hnve found you to be our

"Thank you, sir, mul thank you, miss,'1 says Cobbs,
"for your good opinion. Did y>u bring any luggage
wiih ymi. sir?"
If 1  Wlll believe Boots when  he give.; ine his  Word
and   honor   upon   It,   tlm   lady   bad   gel   a   pflrusol,   a

handed il to Hi** lady, mnl fed her with a BpOOll, mid
look a little himself; the lady being heavy wiih
sleep, and ralher ernes. "Whal should you think,
sir," says Cobbs, "of a chamber candlestick?" Tho
gentleman approved; ihn chambermaid wanl lind, up
iio' groat staircase; the lady, iii her Hky-bltio mantle,
followed,  gallantly  escorted  by  the gentleman; the
uciiii.'Miiui embraced hor nt her dour, and retired t'-

elderly lady. Mr. Walmers looked amused and very
serious, both at once, and says to our missis: "Wc
are mtfch Indebted to you, ma'am, for your kind
care of our little children, which we cnn never suf-
flclently acknowledge, Pray, ma'am, where Is my
boy'."' Our missis says; "Cobbs has the dear child
111 charge, b1i\ Cobbs, show forty!" Then he says to
Cobbs: "Ab, Cobbs, T am glad to see youi I understood you was here:" And Cobbs says; "Ves, air.
Vour most obedient, sir,"
1 may be surprised lo hear Boots say It, perhaps;
but Boots assures me that his heart heal like a hammer, going upstairs, 'i beg your pardon, sir," says
lie, while unlocking the door: "1 hope you nre not
angry with Master Harry, Kor Master Harry iy. a
line hoy, sir, and will do you credit and honor," And
Boots signifies to me that, it' tho lino boy's father
had contradicted lilm in the daring stnte of mind in
which be then was. he thinks he should have "fetched
him  a crack."  ond  taken  lhe consequences.
But Mr, Walmers only says: "No, Cobbs. No,
my good fellow. Thank you'." And, the door being
opened, goes In.
Hoots goes in, too, holding the light, and lie rcoh
Mr. Walmers go up m the bedside, bend gently down,
mid kiss the little sleeping fm-e. Then he stands
looking at it for a minute, looking wonderfully like

nnd then ho gently shakes tho little shoulder,
I had a melancholy Interest In seeing ihe happy
man who loved nnd waa beloved; and, therefore, Instead of driving off at once, J remained at 'he inn
door when lho fugitives drove up. A bright-eyed
fellow, muffled In a mantle, Jumped out eo briskly
that he almost overthrew me. He turned to apologize, and, by heaven, it was Edwin 1
"CharleyI" said he, lecolling. "Gracious powers,

"Edwin," said I, recoiling, "gracious powers, what

an insupportable blaze of light seemed to shoot before my eyes.
lit. hurried me Into the little parlor (always
kept with a slow flro tn it and no poker), where
posting company Mailed while their borj.es were
putting  to, and,  shutting  tho door, said:
"Charley,   forgive  me!"
"Bdwln," I returned, "was this well? When I
loved her so dearly! Wben I hnd garnered up my
heart so long'."   I  could say no more.
Ho was shocked when he saw how moved l w«u.

lie and bis dear girl!    It steeled me.
"you have observed It for my sake, sir?" said I,
wondering how hla frank face could fuce it oui so.
"Yes!—and Angela's," said he.

"Ves,  pa."
Master Harry dresses himself nulckly. His breast
begins lo bwcII when ho bus nearly finished, and it
swells more and moro, as he stands, at lust, a looking at his father; his father a standing u looking

So he lakes Master Marry In his hand, nnd Boots
leads   tho   way   with   tho   candle,   and   they   com,,   to
Ihnt  other  bedroom,   where   the elderly  lady  is floated
by the bed, and poor little .Mrs. Harry Walmers,
Junior, is fast asleep. There tho rather lifts lho child
up to tho pillow, and ho lays bis llttlo face down

gently draws it to him—-a sight so touching to the

that there are not many couples on tholr way to be
married who ne half as innocent of guile as thoso
