I was always "lad wlifii my rounds
hapiieniMl to load through Saiidridge-liy-
tlie-bca i tliiTii were many wilts wlit'i'c
I nii't with kind IriundH enough, who
were pleased to bto an old peddler, who
had served them for ever so many years,
since tliev were children themselves some
of them, hut somehow I liked the tramp
to S.'inilridge heat of all my journeys.
It was a queer little village: one strag-
ling main street leading up from tho
hore, with thu hsheriiiim s huts out
built upon another, up the cliff, until it
made you wonder how you ever got into
them at all.
It was surprising to find how readv
the Sandridge people were to buy my
goods, too j 1 always toou a large as
sortment tlmro, and choao the brightest
colors to please the tibhergirls, who like
to be gaily dress'.'d when they can, and
don't grudge what money they spend on
themselves neither. Hut there was one
cottage in Sandridge where my gaudy
wares tell rather Hat, out 1 was always
sure of a bright, sunny welcome, and I
usually made my way there liit of all.
It was a slct'pisii wain up the cliil to
Hen Kydcr's cottage, and I was always
glad when I reached the top, and saw
Amice standing 111 the doorway laughing
it my effoitsto btruggle up. lleautiful
Amice llydcr sho was called, and rightly
enough to my mind. She wasn't jn-ctty
like many oi the .Sandridge gills were;
lie was too big and quiet looking lor
mere prettiness ; she was just bcautitul,
neither more nor less, and she didn't
need gay clothes to show it off neither.
polks called her pioud, but sho was nev
er proud to me, hut used to laugh at me

the place 1 stopped to jpeak to an old
comrade of mine, who was breaking
stones by the loadside,

mouth with thu back of his hand ;

"What's that'C I asked.
"Whv, just this : Tliuy ain't got room

thoro was something in thu ring of her

time, making her tell me all tho gossip of

Suddenly, as I eat in thu quiet spring
sunshine, I saw a man tailing up thu as
cent thai led to I Sydor's cottage. His
red coat hanging on his arm showed him
to be a soldier. His lint was off and I
could seo his facu distinctly.
"Amice," I called out, loudly, "Amice,
come here." Then as she neared me, I
continued : "Is yon the man that is quar

For a moment she looked out a little
anxiously ; then said, quickly : "Yes,
that's him, raid."
Without another word I left her and

With a rough laugh, he turned away,
and left me standing alone ; then I
slowly remounted tlio rocky path, witli a
heavy weight at iny heart, and prepared
myself for whatl could say to thu girl who
was waiting for my return above. She
stood watchtng me from the porch, where
thu roses were growing in their wild
beauty, and I could see a wondering sort
of look in her facu as I came near her;
but she never spoke a word nor asked a
single question. I was a bit out of
breath after my tug up-hill, and as what
I had lo say wanted all the calmness and
quietness 1 could muster, I waited silent
lor a lime; then took her hand in my
"Amice, my lass," I said. "I've known
you since you were a wee thing toddling

you to make me a promise."
No nnswer, only she held her head a

I looked at her earnestly. "Amice.'

ing myself for what wns before 1110 I en
tered the open door almost unnoticed.
Then I saw Amice as she stood in her
soft gray gown with her beautiful head
drooping on to her breast, I only looked
at her I say, and tlio sight gave 1110 cour
age ; no man living should harm her
wlillo I lived to prevent it,but my task was
a hard one for nil that. Stepping for
ward through tho liltlo crowd of villa
gers thnt looked 011, open-mouthed, to
see me, I made my way toward tlio
group in tho chancel.
"Stop I" I called out aloud, holding up
my hand. "This wedding must not go

a look I shall nover forget,but it was too
late to heed thnt now.
'For what renson am I to stop!" said
old Parson I.eigh, who was a-marryiiig
them, startlcd'by my voice, and not
knowing how to act,
"Because," I said, covering my eyes
with my hands, to shut Arnica's lace from
my sight, "because that man in my son,

"Is this true t" flays Parson Lolgh, his
voioo shaking a little witli the sorrow he
felt for the girl, whom he had known
since she was a baby, and turning to the
man who stood before him.
"It's just a downright Ho, Bir," he said,
simply enough, "and I'm ready to prove
it. My father's here to speak for him
self, and I leaven knows why any one
should want to come between Ainico and
1110 like this."
I looked up bewildered as the nun
spoke, and then in an instant the awful
mistake I had madu (lashed across my
mind ; this was not the man I had seen
coming up to Hen Ryder's houso at all;
this wns not my son, but a younger man,
but different in every way to that poor
wandering fellow. Fir a minute some
thing seamed to come into my throat
and prevent me from speaking. Hut
presently the words came; "I with
draw what I said entirely, sir;" I said,
solemnly, "and I humbly ask pardon for
tho mistake I made, which I will explain
Then fulling back into the ranks of
the astonished lookers on, I listened to
the words that made Amice Ityder
a happy wifr, wondering, with a sad
heart, whether sho would ever forgive
the blunder I had madu in my efTort to
secure her happiness.
Shu was very pale and till and a tear
trembled on her cheek, but she made her
answers in a low, clear voice, thnt seem
ed full of trust and hope. At length the
bells in the old tower rang out, and tho
wedding paity began to prepare for start

Hen Hyder or his daughter, and still
more ashamed to meet the gossiping
folk who had heard all I said. Hut
Amico had not forgotten mo, she saw 1110

"Come home witli us, Paul," bIio said
gently, "1 want you." And notwith

Tho man who lodged nt your father's

only thought of him, and, knowing his

such trouble should never cross your
