—A rrinctUmian.
It was n lovely Juno morning in the
oountry; the air redolent with thesorat
of myriad bloeeoma and musical with
the tongs of as many wild birds, when
Don Olsde stepped over the threehold
of her rustic eohool house to encounter
s surprise not altogether pleasant.
Sinee the first of May Miss Glade had
been teaching this eohool of perhaps
two doaen urchins, whose sgee ranged
all the way from five to fourteen years.
On this particular morning, however,
there eat within the schoolroom, pa
tiently waiting for the arrival of the
teaoher, a tell, well-built young man
who was oertainly several years her
senior, and whose sppearanoe indicated
that he had oome to stay.
The teacher herself was just nineteen,
•lender and graceful as a willow, with
n oharu,.ng admixture of womanly dig
nity and girlish shyness in her manner.
She did not always know exactly what
to do even with some of the rough
youngsters already in her charge, and
now her fair faoe darkened with a look
of undisguised dismay, aa she stopped
short in the doorway, regarding this new
specimen with a private oonviction in
her soul that she should never prove
equal to the teak of managing him.
She looked upon hie intrusion into
her little fold muoh as some peaceful
shepherd might st the sudden ippssr
anee cf a mountain lion among his inno
cent flock. Mastering her chagrin aa
best she con Id, Dora called her school
together, and soon after approached
her unwelcome visitor with a very evi
dent air of embarrassment.
"Do you intend to remain in the
school, sirf*
For the life of bra she didn't know
how she ought to address him.
" Yee'm," answered the new-oomer,
with a meekness which, contrasted with
his fine, powerfnl physique, made her
strongly inclined to langh in his face.
" I calk'late to oome afternoons. Can't
oome much mornin'e, bein' aa I hov to
help Uncle Jake with the crops."
"Oh t" said Dora, gently, suppress
ing a smile, " your name, pleeae?"
- Larry Farnsworth. Squire Jake
Farnsworth over yonder," with an awk
ward nod of his handsome head in the
direction of the squire's mansion,
" where I'm eteyin', is my uncle."
" Yea," said Mias Glade, with a polite
interest. "And now please tell me
what you wish to study, Mr. Farns
" 'Bpoee ye call me Larry, Miss," mid
this great, fine-looking fellow, with the
faaahfnlneee of a child; "I ain't much
used to bein' mistered, an' anyhow I
reckon Fm one of yer scholars, jist like
the rest."
- Oertainly." said Dora, somewhat re
lieved, and determining to put a bold
faoe upon the matter at once. " And
now, Larry," with a rose blush, in spite
of herself, " let us prooeed to select
your studies."
But the verdant young gentleman
soon disclosed the fact that what he did
know of books might be comprised
within a very email space, indeed, while
a model list of what he didn't know
would form a record aa voluminous as
that of the Whitteker testimony.
Days passed on, and Mis* Glade
found them passing very pleasantly.
Her new pupil, though extremely igno
rant, evidently did his best to improve,
and was otherwise a model of perfect
good behavior. The younger boys,
also, gave far leas trouble than at first.
Whether he issued private orders to
them oatside, or whether it was a
threatening glanoe from those com
manding bright gray eyee whenever any
incipient rebellion arose against the
teacher, certain it was that the trouble
some urchins behaved much better than
before the advent of the "big scholar."
Aa for Miss Glade's opinion of our
hero at the end of a month, perhaps we
could not ascertain it more easily than
by glancing at this portion of a letter
written by her to her boeom friend in
the city:
•'Yonhere not forgotten my Ignora
mus, ofwhoml wrote yon. Kittle? Well,
we •till here the honor of hie attend
ance et the school, end I will frankly
admit that I ehonld hardly know, now,
how to keep the name school without
him. How or why he doea it Ido not
pretend to know, bat he seems to hare
those old-time ' intraoteblea' under
such a spell that I do not believe one
of them would dare disobey me, if he
felt so inolined.
" One other fact is unquestionable to
my mind. Were he only blessed with
the cultivation and the gentlemanly,
social poliah which Mr. Arthur Hughes
possesses, Larry Farnsworth would be
my very beau ideal of a man. Often,
as he sits poring hopelessly over the
multiplioation-teble, in his homespun
suit, sans coat, I catch myself watching
the splendid figure, the clear-cut, intel
lectual faoe, with its broad, sweeping
brow and facinating gray eyes, almost
expecting to beer their owner oharm
my senses with the eloquence of a
Cicero, or thrill my soul with poetic dis
quisitions on the wonders and beauties
of the old masters. He looks as though
nature had formed him for a leading
spirit among the choicest favorites of
literature and art. Silent, those hand
some lips seem the very home of poetry
and eloquenoe; but the moment he opens
them to speak—shades of Murray I how
my fairy castles tumble to the ground I
He is an Ignoramus, Kittle —a hopeless
Ignoramus I—celling me to his side
twenty times a day to unravel problems
which ought not to punle the intellect
of a child often. Worse than all, he
does not realise what he has missed.
Oh, what a blunderer was destiny,
thus to dray this man the one gift that
would have made him irresistible I"
And then the poetcript:
" I have at last fnlly decided not to
acoept the hand of Mr. Hughes. May
he find better appreciation elsewhere.
With all his sloganoe and culture he is
not the man who oan fill the heart of
And theee word* of Kittie'e letter, in
"Look oat, my dear, or the Igno.
ramus may capture the heart that a
man of intellect haa failed to win.
Stranger things hare happened. Many
a man haa been educated by hla wife.'
Dora'a lipa curled and a flash of
annoyance crossed her fair, expressive
features aa ahe read.
"Bah!" ahe exclaimed, contempt
uously, crumpling the letter in her
hand and toaaing it into her desk.
But why did her fair face soften into
infinite tenderness, again, and a blush
deeper ' au a crimson rose bathe her
cheek and brow and snowy thfoat aa
ahe remembered oertain thrilling glabcea
from a pair of bright gray eyes ? And
why did this worshiper of intellect
murmur to herself with a kind of fleroe
delight f
"He loves me! I know it I I know
During the summer days that followed,
her thoughts often turned to Kittie'a
letter and the tempting possibilities it
suggested. But ahe quiekly put them
from her. It was exquisitely sweet,
this city girl who eras well used to re
fined and cultivated society could
not deny to herself, to note the electric
influence of her power in the dark
flush rising to a manly cheek, the quick
thrill of his powerful frame, at her
slightest toueh, and the passionate
light she sometimes caught' in the
finest eyes she had ever seen. And per
haps her own heart responded to every
sign. But it could go no further.
Dora's mind was one of those which
ever unconsciously reach out toward all
the richest treasures in tho world of art
and learning, and she knew that it could
never be satisfied with the companion
ship one who could not, at least, keep
paoe with her in all the finest charms of
intellectual life. She resolved never to
make such a dangerous experiment, even
for "love's sweet sake." And we think
that she was right.
It was the last evening of her stay.
Her pupils had all reoeived their little
tokens of remembrance, had said good
bye to their pretty girlish teacher, and
were now gone to their several homes,
leaving her alone to gather up her few
effects and indulge in a parting reverie
upon the events of the pest three
months. Larry Faraswocth alone had
been absent that last day, but la her
secret heart she thanked him for it, for
there had been something in his manner
of late, and a strange disturbance in her
own feelings also, which made her doubt
whether her dignified firmness could
have stood the trial of a final parting.
How strongly her heart was beating
now, as she thought over the past even
ing when the splendid-looking Ig
noramus had walked beside her down
the long lane leading from the school
house, and the low-spoken "good
night" of esoh, as she tuned to cross
the narrow field in the direction of her
lodgings. She remembered, with n
thrill of wondering pleasure, how his
awkwardness bed almost entirely van
ished in the unconscious devotion which
he raid her.
No, die reflected, with' a deep sigh,
as aha turned to go, it would never do
for them to meat again. She must go
back to the city and forget. Forget
the lowly youth who had power to atir
the very depths of bar soul aa no other
mortal man had aver dona I Yet her
heart bitterly rebelled against the fata
which made suoh renunciation neoea
Glancing through the open door she

and elegant There was a something

and yet—it oould not be 1
Ah, but it oould i for the next mo

of the tall stranger, and bar unbelieving
eyes ware gasiug up into the handsome,
saucy face of Larry Farnsworth.
"I came to bid my little teacher
good-bye," he aaid, looking down upon
bar mischievously, a aly smile quivering
under the slight dark moustache.
" Larry 1"
It was all she could my, for, unable
to bear a certain new expression in the
glance of those gray eyes, and the rush
of memories it brought bar, she aank
upon the nearest bench and covered her
faoe with her hands. Larry sat down,
too, with a warm light of tenderness in
his resolute, saucy faoe, but the first
words that Dora faltered forth made
- Then yon are not the Ignoramus,

from the roguish eyes.
" Well, no, not exactly, since I have
had the honor of graduating from old
Harvard," replied the Ignoramus, with
exasperating coolness. " Miss Glade—
Dora," drawing her hands away from
the blushing faoe, " please forgive my

11" And yon might have been teaching

Bew to Shake Heads.
There are only two or three people
now living who can so ooresfully shake
hands. There is e good deal of hand
shaking done through the oountry,
especially at this season of the year, bnt
only a very small per cent, of the shak
ers and shakeea know how to do it ao as
to get the entire amount of exhilaration
out of it Borne grab the hand of an
adversary in a quick, nervous
that scares the victim nearly to death,
while others slide the cold and clammy
paw at yon so that yon feel the seme as
when you drop e cold raw oyster with
vinegar on it down your back. If you
are shaking hands with a lady incline
the heed forward with a soft and grace
ful yet half-timid movement like a
boy climbing a barbed-wire fence with
i a fifty-pound watermelon. Look gently
in her eyes with a kind of pleading
smile, beam on her features a bright
mid winsome beam, say something
yon he*e heard some one else say on
similar ocoasious and in the mean time
shake her hand in a subdued yet vigorous
way, not ss though yon were trying to
make e mash by pulverising bar fingers
nor yet in too conservative s manner,
allowing her hand to fell with a sicken
ing thad when you let go. Gsre should
be taken also not to hang on to the
