"Wi 11, this is a h*fc day !" said l)r.
Gray, to himself, as he guided his shag
gy little horse round the sli irp turn of
the road and checked him under the
spreading shadow of tin* giantcherry
tree, whoso broad boughs woio all
sparkling with blie ruby pendants, and
then walked to the house.
"llalloo 1" said the doctor.
He shaded his eyes with his hand and
looked intently in at the kitchen win
dow There was the trim figure ot his
pretty daughter standing at the kitch
en table, her sleeves rolled back, and a
pink checked apron tied about her ta
per waist, apparently deep in the sac
charine mysteries of pie-making. That
was nothing surprising ; but Dr. Gray
could have sworn that a minute ago
the apparition of a young gentleman
was manifesting a remarkable degree
of interest in the pan of sliced apples
and various spice boxes and sugar
bowls that flanked it, and yet,now that
he looked again. K'tty .was trimming
off the edges of her pie-crust all alone !
He walked straight into the kitchen,
where the oven-lire was glowing so hot
ly that Kitty's cheeks were like twin
carnations as she worked away at the
pies, sifting showers ot powdered cin
namon and uutmegover the juicy slices
of July apples, and drenching them 111
snowy sugar.
"Kit 1 where's Harry Browne V"
Kitty stopped to cut a little star in
the centre of the white sheet iff pie
crust wherewith she was covering her
pastiy before she answered in a low
tone : "I don't know, papa."
"You don't, eh?" said the doctor,
quietly pursing up his mouth in a shape
suggestive of whistling. "I suppose
And the doctor 'proceeded through
the hall into his little study, where sat
his hopeful young student, Harry
Browne, deep in the ponderous pages of
a medical dictionary.
"Been hard at work all day, eh V"
said the old gentleman, taking off his
hat and fanuiug himself with its broad
''Yes, sir," said Jlrowne ; "I've writ
ten out that abstract you left,and look
ed over the papers on fractures, and—"
''All right; all right; jou're a most
industrious fellow," said Dr. Gray.
''You don't leave off work on all sorts
of frivolous pretexts, do you ?"
"No, sir," said Browne, demurely.
"Y'ou are convinced that nothing but
steady peiseyerance will enable a man
to succeed in the science of medicine?"
"Yes, sir," responded Mr. Henry
Browne, raoying a little uneasily in his
"Very sensible of said Dr.
Gray, shrugging his shoulders. "And
now—but what are you looking for ?"
"My seal ring, sir, I thought it was
on my finger but a minute ago. l r ou
haye not seen it, I suppose ?"
"No, not that I know of," said the
Doctor, taking snuff as briskly as he
did anything else.
"I hope it is not lost," said Harry.
"I value it very highly as my father's
gift. Where can it have gone ?"
"Don't know," said the Doctor.
"Just give me that b'st of patients we
expect this afternoon, and then go out,
and ask Jack to look for your trinket.
That boy has more eyes and ears than
most people, I believe—l know he has
more mischief 1"
Ilarry Browne adopted his precept
or's suggestion ; and the old gentleman
was left alone, alternately taking snuff,
rubbing his spectacles and congitating
whether his fair daughter was really
deceiving him as to her innocent love
"Confound it," soliloquized the Doc
ior, petulantly, "it takes sharper eyes
than mine to see through womankind's
minoevers. I'll ferret out the mystery
yet, though ; hanged if I don't 1"
The brazen throat of the old kitchen
clock had just uttered, in a sort of ,a
shrill tremble, the fact that it was two,
past meridian, and dinner was nearly
over at Dr. Gray's. Somehow dinner
tasted better in the long, shady dining
room of the Gray mansion house than
it did anywhere else, for the climbing
honey-suckles at the window stirred so
pleasantly in the wind, and held back
their green wilderness of leaves to ad
mit such delicious scents of new-mown
hay and blossom-sprinkled woods that
the most delicate appetite could not re
sist being tempted. And Kitty Gray
looked so pretty at the head of the ta
ble, her brown hair brushed back and
ner white throat edged with a dainty
lace and the faint color coming and go
ing on her cheek like rosy shadows. No
wonder Harry Browne looked at her so
often, we should have done the same
thing had we sat opposite her at the
"I'll take another piece of that apple
pie, Kate," said the old Doctor,extend
ing his plate. "Capital pie ; where did
the apples come from ?"
"I believo Patrick gathered them
from the old tree that stands ny the
south wall of the orchard, papa; the
apples hang there like balls of gold just
sfreaked with rtsd On the sunny side,
and I baked them this morning."
"Upon my world you're getting to l>e
quite a little housekeeper," said the
Doctor, chucklirg. "I suupose some
young fellow'll bo Why, halloa,here!
what's this ?"
For Di.Gray's teeth,sound and white
as ivory. had struck against some
foreign'substance under the snowy
crust of the much-praised lie, with a
jar that set every nerve on edge.
"Do they make apple-pies nowadays
out of stones ?" demanded the old gen
tleman, tartly. 44 N0, I'm mistaken, it
isn't a stone—it's a seal ring !"
And the Doctor quietly held up Har
ry Browne's missing ornament —a
heavy Canadian, set in a ring of chased
gold. Kitty turned scarlet ; Browne
looked amazed and confounded.
"How a seal ring should happen to
get baked in an apple-pie I don't know,'
said the malicious old Doctor, enjoy
ing the confusion of his companions.
"Young people, can you tell me what
i 11 this means ?"
"I can tell you sir," said Ilarry, yili
antly, seeing that now or never was
the time for his avowal. "It means
that 1 am in love with your daughter
Kitty, and that if you will give me
your consent to our union we will be
everlastingly grateful to you."
"Papa," whispered Kitty, with her
round arms about his nock, "now be
good, and say jes. I wanted to tell
you before—only—l didn't dare."
"Oh !" said Dr. Gray, dryly; "I sup
posed I should find things out by and
by. I wish, however, it mayn't be at
the cost of the snapping toothache."
"May I have tier, sir ?" pleaded Ilar
ry, who had by this time got his arm a
round Kitty's waist.
"Well," said the Doctor, "I don't
know that I've any objection. Have it
your own way, young people. Only, if
you have any more courting to get
through with, I beg you won't do it
up over my apple-pies 1"
Harry Browne was a rich man that
July afternoon; he had two treesure
truves—a promised wife and a seal ring!
And the Doctor was happy, for he had
found something to tease Kitty about.

"My dear," said Mrs. Spoopendyke,
glancing nervously out of the window
and tnen timidly at her husband, "my
dear, I wonder how that goat got into
our yard V"
14 What goat V" asked Mr. Spoopen
dyko, looking up fiom his Incakfnst.
"Why, tlic goat that's out there."
44 ()h !" grunted Mr. Spoopendyke,
approaching the window. "You mean
that one, do yu ? The principles that
generally regulate your conversation
betrayed me into thinking that your
mind might be flxed on some other
goat. A 8 for him, 1 suppose he broke
through the fence from the back lot—
or," continued Mr Syoopendyke, has
tily, correcting himself, "perhaps he
came to cull on you. Better ask him
"I'm afraid of him," pesped Mrs.
Spoopendyke. drawing closer to her
husband. "What do you think we had
better do ? if he stays out there he'll
eat up everything."
"1 believe I'll go and drive him out,"
said Mr. Spoopendyke,eyeing the brute
with no particular amount of favor.
"Y'ou come along to head him off, and
you'll soon see a goat begin to wish
he had been born a girl that some one
might learn to love him." And with
this prognostication Mr. Spoopkudyke
sallied forth followed by his wife.
44 Be careful," she whispered.
"When goats get angry they tutt, and
that liurtß."
"Shoo !" commenced Mr. Spoopen
dyke, waving his hands and following
the goat to a hole in the fence, where a
couple of boards had been knocked out.
"Shoo there, now ! Ski ! Hold on !
Head him, can't ye ! Turn him I
Whoop 1" he ioared, as the goat whirl
ed suddenly and clashed to the other
end of the yard. "What'd ye come
out here for ?" he demanded of his
wife, who had made a little better time
than the g<>at, and had reached the top
of a step ladder.
''Don't let him come up here !" she
squealed, stamping her feet on the top
step, aud trying to climb up the side of
the house. "Hold on to him and call
a policeman !"
''Great scheme !" growled Mr.
Spoopendyke,looking around for a stick
"But I haven't made up my mind
wnether to call a policeman, or do
holding on first. What're making
stucco-work of yourself up there for ?
Come down and get behind that goat,
will ye, while I teach him ttie ways
and admonitions of Spoopendyke. If
you ain't mighty careful he'll rub up
against that step ladder, and you're lia
ble to come down in sections !"
"This prophesy brought Mrs. Spoop
endyke to the ground without much
"Say,dear," she suggested, "suppose
you should go to the other side of the
hole, and call him. Don't you think
he'd come ?"
"Come in a minute, if I happened to
hit his light name," retorted Mr.
Spoopendyke, who had found a stick,
and was preparing for war. "Now
you edge around behind him, so as to
give liirn a starter, and I'll put myself
in communication with him as soon as
he gets under way."
"Go along, dear, lvun through that
pretty little hole like a good goat I"
faltered Mrs. Spoopendyke, apostroph
izing the animal in a purely feminine
fashion. "Shoo, dear, now, and be
real nice." The goat looked at her,
thereby freezing her blood, and started
slowly for the bottom of the yard.
"Yes, love !" ripped Mr. Spoopen
dyke, bringing his stick down on the
bick of ttie beast with a vindictive
grin. "There's a nice little opening
for goats that'a awaiting for thee!"
and down came the stick once more.
"Whe-e-e'e !" squealed Mrs. Spoop
endyke, as ttie goot whirled around like
a compass at once. "He must be look
ing for the place to get out, isn't he V"
VViiatdoyou suppose makes hiui act
that way ? Wlie-e-e-e !"
The last yell was extracted by a sud
den straightening up ff the goat, wtio
tore around the yard like a cat in a
"With that headway on, he'll be apt
to go through the hole in the fence if he
ever hits it," observed Mr. Spoopen
dyke, who had j fined his wife in the
middle of the circuit rather precipt
ously. "I think I must havs struck
him a little harder than he meant to
have me. Now, you get behind him
again, and we'll fix him so that the
next time he sees a hole iu our fence
he'll get a hammer and board up the
Mrs. Spoopendyke eeled along the
fence, and took her station with con
siderable perturbation. The goat came
down to a irot, and finally stopped and
looked a triflle bewildered. Mr. Spoop
endyke grasped his stick with a firmer
grip, and figuratively speaking, waited
for his wife to deliver the ball.
1 i4 NoW start himsaid he.
Terms, SI.OO per Year, in Advance.
Mrs. Spoopendyke waved her apron,
and the goat aiming straight at the
hole in the fence bore down upon it
witli three hundred goat power. Mr.
Spoopei.dyke aimed a lick at him, and
went tuniiiltuously through the hole
as the goat si ruck the fence and hound
ed hack.
4 'Great gracious I" ejulated Mrs.
Spoopendyke, swarming up the step
ladder and squ tiling at ihe top. "Are
you hurl, dear V"
"Hurt !" howled Mr. Spoopendyke,
peeping through the hole and contem
plating Ins wife with a savage glare.
"Think I'm a nail, to coine through a
board fence and be clinched without
feeling it ? Can't you scare that gofc
away from this hole so I can comeback
and commune with him once more?
Come down off that dod-gasted step
ladder, can't ye ? Got a notion that
measly goat is coming up there to be
scared ? Come down and throw a
brick at him, will ye ?"
"I haven't got a brick," murmured
Mrs. Spoopendvke,as she scuttled down
the ladder, "but I'll get a flat-iron,"
and having provided herself with a
weapon the use of which she under
stood, she sallied forth to effect an ex
change of situation between the goat
and her husband.
"Now go along 1" she exclaimed
sternly, holding out her war material
at arm's length "A'n't you ashamed of
voursdf, you nasty goat 1 Ow-w-w !
Look out, dear 1"
But Mr. Spoopendyke, constant to
his want of faith in his wi f e'a suggest
ions, incautiously looked in, and In
and the goat rolled over each other in
the vacant lot.
"Did the whole business work in ac
cordance with the schedule ?" he yell
ed, as he picked himself up and fired
the remnant of his stick at the flying
foe. 4 'Did the whole measly goat get
through, or is there more to follow ?
Don't omit a stanza in this refreshing
season of worship ! Let's have the
whole hymn !" and Mr. Spoopendyke
presented himself at the opening in the
fence, with mud-streaked face and tat
tered habiliments.
"Come in, dear," said Mrs. Spoop
endyke, soothingly. "Come in, now.
He's gone."
"I know he's gone !" howled Mr.
Spoopendvke, crawling through the
hole. "I saw him when he went I
Oh, you started him ! When he saw
that vigorous mind of yours backed up
by a dod-pasted flat-iron, all he could
do was to go 1 Another time you see
me scai ing a goat out of the yard, you

Spoopendyke hobbled into the house to
change his clothes.
"I don't care 1" murmured Mrs.
Spoopendyke, dragging a barrel against
the hole as protection against further
incursions. "I don't care. -The way

continued, referring to some serious
experience, "if you want to make sure

press your claim against that man ;
you can get some one else to take the
case, or you can withdraw it, just as
you please."
"Think there isn't any money in

"There would probably be some

"Not fi.r my benefit, in the least.
You see"— the lawyer crossed hts right
toot over bis left knee, anl began
stroking his lower leg up and down, as
if to help tn state his case concisely—
"you see, I found the little bouse easi
ly enough, and knocked on the onter
door which stood ajar, but nobody
hoard mo, so I stepped into the little
hall, and saw through tne crack of an
other door just as cozy a sitting room
as there ever was.
"Thereon a bed, with her silver
head way up high on the pillows, was
an old lady who looked for all the word
just as my mother did the last time I
ever saw her ou earth. Well I was
right on the point of knocking, when
she said as clearly as could be ; "come,
father, now begin, I'm all teady"—and
down on his kneess by her side weQt
an old white-haired man, still older
than his wife, 1 should judge ; and I
couldn't have knocked then for the life
of me. Well he began ; first he re
minded God that they were still His
submissive children, mother and he,
and no matter what He saw fit
to bring upon them they shouldn't
rebel at His will! of course 'twas going
to be terrible hard for them to go out
homeless in their old age, specially
with poor mother so sick and helpless,
but still they'd seen sadder things than
ever that would be. He reminded
God in the next place bow different all
might have been if only one of their
boys bad been spared ibem ; then his
voice kind of broke, and a thin, white
hand stole from under the coverlet and
moved slowly over his snowy hair;
then he went on to repeat that nothing
could be so shaip again as the parting
with those three sons—unless mother
and he should be seperated. But at
last he fell to comforting himself with
the fact that the dear Lord knew it was
through no fault of his own that moth
er and he were threatened with the
loss of their dear little home, which
meant beggary and the almshouse, a
place they prayed to be delivered from
entering, if it could be consistent with
God's will ; and then he fell to quoting
multitude of promises concerning the
safety of those who put their trust in
the Loid ; yes, I should say be Legged
hard ; in fact it was the most thrilling
plea to which I ever listened ; and at
last he prayed for God's blessing on
those who were about to demand jus
tice"—the lawyer stroked his low
er limb in silence for a moment or
two, theu continued, more slowly than
ever :
"And—l—believe-I'd rather go to
the poorhouse myself, to-night, than to
stain my heart and hands with the
blood of such a prosecution as that."
"Little afraid to defeat the old
man's prayer, eh ?" queried the cli
"Bless your soul, man, you couldn't
defeat it I" roared the lawyer. "It
doesa't admit of defeat 1 I tell you he
left it all subject to the will of God :
but he left no doubt as to his wishes
in the matter ; claimed that we were
told to make known our desires unto
God ; but of all the pleadiog I ever
heard, that beat all. You see I was
taught that kind of thing myself in my
childhood, and why I was sent to hear
that prayer I'm sure I don't know, but
I hand the case over."
"I wish." said the client, twisting
uneasily, "you hadn't told me about
the old fellow's prayer."
"Why so."
"Well I want the money confound
edly the place would bring, bat I was
taught the Bible all straight when I
was a youngster, and I'd hate to ran
counter to such a harangue as that you
tell about. I wish you hadn't heard a
word of it ; and another time I
wouldn't listen to petitions not intend
ed for your ears."
The lawyer smiled.
"My dear fellow," he said, you're
wrong again ; it was intended for my
ears, and yours, too,and God Almighty
intended it. My old mother used to
sing about God's moving in a myster
ious way, I remember."
"Well my mother used to sing it,
too," said the claimant, as he twisted
his claim papers in his fingers. "You
can call in the morning,if you like, and
tell mother and him the claim has been
