"But, Cobweb, how will . you manage

Well, we got everything arranged be
fore we went home that night, and could
hardly wait to see how IT would work.
First, let ins describe "Old Black." In
the first place, he is not old, but a fine
looking man of about thirty-five years;
but his still, dignified manners, and the
feet of his being unmarried, gave him
the title of "Old Black,'' his real name
being Mr. Levi Black, and the owner of
one of the finest farms In the town of
li-, where he lives alone with an
The next day 'Cobweb sent him an in
vitation to the ball, which was promptly
accepted ; and Cobweb was in °high glee.
The wished (or night at length arrived,
and we were all on tiptoe, you may
well believe. Cobweb went early; she
drove up to the door about half past
seven and, running up the steps,
rang the bell. The old housekeeper
came to the door, and looked es though
she thought Cobtweb was crazy when
ehe asked for Mr. Black, but she man
aged to ask her to walk in, and she
yotild telpher master she wanted to see
"But what under the stun that chit of a
thing wants of Mr. Black, I don't see,"
she muttered, as she went out.
Cobweb sat down and waited with all
patience. Soon she came beet, saying
he would be ready presently. Cobweb
"Wafted an hour, and he did not come;
then another hour and no Mr. Black. She
was about to ring for some one to find
out what the trouble was, when in he
came, all smiles, saying:
"Have I been long? I have been hur
ried-so, I am all nerved up."
"Oh, no," said Cobweb, "you have
been Just no time at all. Well, we will
go now, if you are all ready; but it
seems hardly possible—pm have been so
very quick !" •
"Oh yes; I am quite ready."
"Well, now we will go."
She waited on him into the buggy,
and tucked the robes around tilm as so
ber as a Judge, and Whored up the
reins, and they were soon at the hall.
Oh, how honored Cobweb looked, as she
came in with Mr. Black hanging on her
arm. She gave us a look out of those
eyes of hers. that set us all into a laugh ;
but all the while he was as sober as
he could be. But I saw a twinkle in his
eye that meant mischief. Well, all
went as merry as could be. When sup
per time came, Cobweb gave us the
wink to be on hand, as agreed. 'We all
swalljsrred our supper as soon as pouf
ble, knd went and hid in a closet that
opened not of the ladies' dressing room,
where Cobweb meant to entice him af
ter supper, and then propose to him in
the most approved style, as she said.
-We con ut Just keep still. Soon we
saw them come in. Cobweb led him to
a seat, and seating herself beside him,
she looked, over to our hiding -place and
made a face. That set us all to glggting,
and Lou laughed out; but he took no no
tif It, 6Q amp tisouglit It was all right.
"Dear Mr. Black," said Cobweb, mo

"I have long waited for this opportunity
to open my heart tit pay, bit hare parer

We all oame out, looking sheepish
enough, I expect. I never saw Cobweb
cornered before; but I think she will
make it all right; We went home in
high glee, but Mr. Black would insist
upon seeing Cobweb home safe, for be
said be always made It a point of duty to
look after all valuable property. How
