But that our lore sOcin put to flight
The hideous monster from our sight.

Of the old days to ns so dear ;

Your lips first dared to whisper Jqe.
All, wife, how happy was I then,.
As I replied, and tailed you Jen;
But nwu fifty years ago,
And you were Jen and I was Joe.
Yes, wife, full fifty years have gone
Since life was full of dreams and song,
Without a thought of any fears
But that we'd love through corning years,
And though love's dreams are oft untrue,
We guessed much better than some do ;
You said we'd love through all our life ;
And so we have, my preeloui wife.
But time so alters everything,
That thoughts alone can old times bring
And when I've nothing else to do,
I bring them up in sweet IVI , IOIIII,

" Very respectfully Olive Har
land." • -
Floy Preston peeped over her fa
ther's shoulder and read aloud the
signature of the letter he held. "Who
is Olive Harland, papa ?"
Mr. Preston read :
••TO FICA KTART OF HOARD OF TRVRTZZR— ,,

"St. Louis, Aug.
• " Good 1_ Oh 1 I am so glad 1"
Floy: executed a pirouette in the
most approved style; then seized the
letter .for another reading. ' 4 If this
wasn't a business epistle - I could
ju• Ike something a ooutlier. I'm sorry
it is formal. But she is iyoung and
I know she'll be jolly. 'I had for
gotten that you had sent for a St.
Louis girl to teach our school, papa.
Cousin Egbert, look. at her writing
and give me an opinion.. Hand
writing shows character, I have heard
you say." • • •.
Dr. Preston smiled his own inimi
table smile, and took the note from
" Humph!" he ejaculated; then he
kloked long at the perfectly formed
o's, and abrupt t's, and the perfectly
contour of the signature.
," Miss Harland is evidently a:self
reliant person," he said, at length;
"I. am also inclined to believe her
" Yon are too bad, Egbert," pouted
Floy; "I don't believe you can tell
a word about persons by their writ
"' It were imbecile hewing out
roads to a wall,' " quoted he. Floy
rooked at him in a puzzled way for a
moment, then went singing from the
room, and presently Egbert saw her
out among, the verbenas, weeding
and watering, looking very pretty in
her morning dress of blue.
"By the way," said Mr. Preston,
suddenly, "this - is , the thirty-first.

;that, :if the truth were . told, thks .
nephew of his was extremely di a.
trustful ; so :nueh so, indeed, that
Floy sometimes accused him of bash
"'lt makes no difference. I shall
go down when it cools off a little. It
is hardly probable that Miss Harland
will come until a later train," and he
lazily turned a page of "Middle

in his vine-covered porch far prefera

A pause of a' moment and the
train rushed'on again, leaving only
Olive Harland standing' beside her

disappointed that she did not see
waiting for her the cool - roomy car

One forlorn looking wagon stood at
a little distance, and Olive inquired

REGARDLESS OF DENUNCIATION FROM ANY QUARTER.
" Carr you tell me how far from
here he lives ?"
"Do you know which direction it
" No;" more stolidly than ever. '
She turned from ,him in disgust,
and entered the combination of store
room, waiting-room and telegraph
office, that the people of Morris Sta
tionlondly call " The Depot." One
busy little official was in attendance,
and of him Olive inquired whether
or not any one from 'Squire Preston's
had been at the station.
"No, ma'am," said little, Obsequi

"How far.is it to Mr. Preston's?"
"Two miles right east of here.
Big mouse; first house east."
"Take care of my trunks,,please,

Olive spread her parasol and left
Little Obsequious bowing in the
door of" The Depot." Right on into
danger walked Olive. Passed were
the store, the blacksmith shop, the
post-office, and the half dozen strag
gling houses; Passed was, the mile
long stretch of marsh road, and
Olive - was talking to him-almost be
fore she had had time to realize his
presence. Swiftly - behind tier, slowly
beside her walked the man, and , al
most instantaneously with the knowl
edge that some one was near her,came
the horrid_ belief that grew at once
into certainty, that the some one was

other-places there is found a quanti
