This especial afternoon, as sbe
sat meditatively before tho Are, sbe
suddenly broke the stillness, with so
eoergy of speech tbat made the
yonng girl reading in the bay-win
dow, nearly conoealed by the car-
tains, look startot'ly np from her
book :
'Ellioe, yon're a fool T
Evidently, Kllice Dnnning bad
not lived five years as companion
anl personal attendant to Vsa
Miner in rain, for she manifested no
surprise at the rough speech, beyond
the brief little startled look in 'her
soft winey-brown eyes.
Sbe closed ber book and came ont
into the room, a little flash on her
"Do yon think so, Miss Jfmor
"Most oortiinty 1 think sj, or I

"I conldn't give bim up, Mus

Miss Miner looks 1 sarcastically at
F.llice's sweet flushed face, aud gave
a suiff of contempt.
"What nonsenao I Yon love bim
too woll. Love indeed I It's all ab

my life."
EUice dropped Iter bead in a prct
ly, little coufused way.

bojperfectly miserable if we wero

possible. We are engaged to be
married just as soon as be comes

Miss Miner dropped her foot from
the polUluJ silver bt to tho tiled
hearth with a ressnwt bn as she
jumped np. indignantly. ,

E lice's lips quiver el. and her
eyes filled with diamond bright
"Miss Miner. You dont mean
to turn me awny."
"That N jiiRt what I moan. 1
have told you time and again, I
didu t approve of men -boom and

''I don't want five minntef for a

ly. Yon bave been very good to me,
and I cannot forget yonr kindnoss t

And tben Kllice went np to Miss
Miner's room and packed tho red
Russia satchel, dropping a few tears
as sho folded the garments Miss
Miner would require,
I'll go to Jfrs. Carisford Carl."
Miss Jfiner decided, as she sat in
the eity-boond express, in tho early
dask of the .November evening.
"Camelia thinks all the world of me.
Her daughter would not act, Tho

And tben Miss Miner leaned back
very contentedly in her seat, satis
fied that she bad dono ber whole
duty by herself, and Ellice Dunning,
It was just 8:30 o'clock when the
hired hack deposited her at the door

A servant showed her in, and aik

that a fried wished to see her while
she seated Izrx&t ia tho parlor,

"Yse" said Miea Miner, with
affable smile. "Yoa are Hetty, I

Tbo ohild gave a heavy sigh,
"Yes, I'm Hetty. Ob, don't I
hate that name T''
"Why, ly. think it's a first rate
nemo. Yoa are a namesake of
somebody, I gness ?'
"Yes, 7 am. Old ffelty Mioer, my
anot, who lives out ia the dantry.
I never have seen ber and I don't
want to either, 'cause mamma ssys
she's tbe meanest old thing in all

Miss Minor smiled a little queer-
"Oh 1 that's what they say, is it f

"Are yoa f Then, won't mamma be

an insane desire to shake the pert,

Aud before .1i'S. Ctrl came down

street, on ber way to her bulf-brotb-er'a

And ber complacency was not yot
restored when she left the street

Parker Dollingby's bachelor quarters
tbat were ulight ia a perfect blaze
of bright cheer.
"It looks like a party," she

which came the sound of rovelry
and jollification tbat bad prevented

Mine Minor wont into the first
door that stood ejtr, nod through
another partly-closed door she saw
the gay bachelor party some ton or
fifteen merry over their wine.
"So that's the way Parker Doll

self grimly, just as, tho same instant
that gentlemau rose bign, and for a
second silenced all others.
"Here's to tbo health of my most

Somehow Miss Mioer took her

to leaveby a traio sn hour later,

at tbe masthead. "Looks like a

tightened stilt more a few minutes
later, when the lookout bailed again,
'She's'an armed brigantino, bearing

Every face among tbe crew seem
