The i.eisnn who asked this Question a

simple words passed his lips he reddened

no one cvci understood how he contrived
S to muster np courage enough to enlighten
j Annie Moore on the subject of his pre
j feience for himself. The mattter pro
j bally remains to this day as much a
' mystery to mm n iu oi...
JIiss Annie, however, Lad a lair share
of tact aud womanly cleverness stowed
safely away somewhere in the recesses
of her pretty little head, although it was
carried jauntily upon the inexperienced
and rounded shoulders of fresh eighteen
She did not need to le reminded that
David was worth, iu a worldly way,
much more than any of her other suitors
and that he was good Dking, good-hearted
and intelligent enough to satisfy any
but an over fastidious person of her chug.
He was unexceptionable, in short, barr
ing Lis unconquerable and excessive
bashfiiiuess, which indeed was a never
failing source of merriment to the young
people of their little circle.
And so, when David in his awkward,
blundering, half frightened manner be
gan shyly to exhibit his preference for
her in various little ways, such as wait
ing on her to and from singing school,
constituting himc!f her escort when she
went Sundays 011 horseback to the lone
ly little church iu the woods, and sing
ing her out as the recepieut of whatever
attentions lie cobM find the nerve to pay
at the frequent quilting parties in the
neighborhood, Annie did not frighten
him out of his budding passion by any
show, tithcr by surprise or marked . pre
ference, but took it all in the easiest,
plcasantest, unconscious manner possible
The girls tittered and nudged each, other
elbows, and the young men cracked fur
tive jokes at the expeuce cf her timid
suitor, but she stood np for him like a
reol kiud hearted, independent Western
lass, as she was, and tried to encourage
him out of his shyness as far aa she con
She never seemed to notice any of his
unfortunate blunders, and very likely
helped him along considerably when his
feelings reached the culmiuating poiut,
one moon lighted August evening, as
they were walking home together from a
That had been just oue week ago.
Annie had said "yes," and had agreed
to take the responsibility of bringing
father and mother ''around' on the eub-
jject. David had not been to the house
I since. Probably he ftlt very much like
j a dog who fears to venture upon tLa
premises of a person whose shecofold he
i has just plundered. Thu3 itrhappeued
1 that aa yet the powera that were, knew
I nothing of the momentons secret, which
they kept between themselves, fearing to
divulge. AbJ now, Annie, who- wished
to pnt off the ordeal of n bybI as long
aa po?8ih!e at any rate to gain time for
otic more confidential talk wi)h David on
thesubjoct, saiJ hagtHr in reply to that
ftammereJ query of hia with which we
have prefaced tins narration :
"Mother is going over to Aunt Ruth's
with father to ppend the evening and ehe
wants me to go, but I guess I wont. I've
been working on lather's near thina all
day, besMes doing the dairy work yes
Icrday, and I'm about tired out."
Thru tLe added before he could re
Don't come until 8 o'clock. I shall
be about through putting things to rights
by that time "
Of course David v. as not too c-utase
to understand that ha was specially fa
vored by this arrangement, and he so f.tr
forgot Ms fcaphfulness as to petition awk
wardly for a parting kiss, which was at
once re fused in the most inexorable man

take yourself off, will you ? D'ye think
I didn't eco you fidgeting around Km.
Smith at Deacon Anderson's sociable last '
night ! I've not forgotten that sir !"
'Oh, now, Annie ! jast one ! '
But further appeal was broken tff by
a tantalizing little laugh, and when, ren
dered desperate by, this, ho tried to
revenge hiir.s. If, and at the very moment
when Le thought he was secure of the
coveted blies and stooped his head tritim
phantly over his struggling prisoner, the

of the family were eaten. The leaves
of the old fashioned dinner tabic had
been let down, and the table itself cov
ered wilh bright oilcloth, set against the
wall. The crumbs had been carefully
brushed with a turkey wing from the
neat home made carpet, and Annie's
'workstand was drawn up in front of the
ample and blazing firo of hickory logs
which crackled cheerily iu the old-ft.-h-ioned
A beautifully piled tray of red-checked
apples aud a plate full of cracked
walnuts were on it, in close proximity to
Annie's coquettish work-backet, made of
pine cones by her own deft lilt'o hands,
aud daintily lined wilh blue silk.
On one side of tbc fire place sat Mrs.
Moore, fat, fair, more than forty, aud at
peace with all the world. She sat sway
ing backwards and forwards at intervals
iu her low rocking chair, knitting as ehe
rocked, and refreshing herself now and
theu with a mouthful from a half eaten
apple which lay within easy reach, just
npou the corner of the table ; or touch
ing in a caressing manner with ths tip of
her foot a sleek, lazy-looking gray cat
that lay purring and bliuking on the
hearth rug before her.
Annie sat on the other side of the U
ble dtftly drawing her needle ia aud out,
of a long piece of white cambric, and
with her head as busy as her han3l with
trying to conceive seme clever way of
incidentally mentioning the visit, which
she was now momentarily expecting, to
her mother, without exciting the suspi
cion of its being a prearranged affair.
She would have given a, good deal to
have been able to say iu an off-hand
manner that she wouldut wouder if Mr
Winthrop were to drop in, as he was in
the habit of calling occasionally on Sat
urday evening at about thia time. But
she xecollected, with a twinge of con
science, how hard she bad tried the old
lady to accompany her husband on the
promised visit to Aunt Ruth's in spite of
her forewarnings rf a coming spell of
neuralgia, which hat ' intimidated her
from venturing out into the damp night
air ; and also how she pleaded headache
as an excuse for not going herself. She
knew that her mother was quL'e sharp
enough to draw her own inference from
these two facta, and the additional one of
her being dressed with more than usual
care to spend an evening at home.
"I shall not dare to tell her now," she
said to herself "She'd bo sure to think
that I wanted to get her out of the way,
so that I might have David all to my
self." So like a wise little puss she was
