Her idea of coiffure was not  the most becoming that could: have  been selected, as sbe felt that a  "young" style of halrdresslug was  'foolish for a single woman of her  years.

Yet Miss  [Slattie could noil, forget tbo bare feet  and nightgown,*;although they were  'hidden from masculjne eyes by wood  and plaster, and she was embarrassed.

Ited had  an exceedingly keen eye for some  things, and ho noticed the certainty  'Of the action. He hated fuinbiers, "A  pereoh can do things right if they've  got minds that work," was one of his  pet sayings. "'Taint.tbe muscles at  all; It's ln the head, and 1 like the kind  of toad that's In uso all the time."  Therefore this small affair made an  Impression on him.  : "Why, you could be a baseball play-  ���������or," said be.  "I used to.play with Joe whon I  wns h girt,"'said MIrs Mattie, smiling,  "I always liked boys' play better than  I did girls'. Joo taught mo how to  throw n ball too.

"I'll  tl\ow you fiow to build n liro."  Tlio early morning bud been tbo most  dotwlato timo to MIhh Mtittle.
