She raised her hands as if imploring
him not to cut them off, and he, looking
down at his uliirt to see if it were but
toned, showed his yellow teeth, and
continued: '"Yes, you better keep in

"Hah! Who told you? Dinged If he
didn't go there, but he left his paper
dead as a padlock."
"I haven't anything to hide," she
said, "and I don't mind telling you that,
having grown very tired of city life, I
have come here to resit awhile, but not
being able to rest without work I have
deckled to lease this little paper and
play with It."
"Talk like a woman In a show, dinged
If you don't. Not being able to rest
without work Is a new one on me: but
we will let that puss."
"Just as well, I suppose. Yes, It Is
my purpose to live here a year, and
then if I like the place well enouuh I
may remain permanently."
"Ah, hah," said the old fellow, "that
is to say, you mought git murrled and
settle down here. Putty good plan, I
reckon, for I hear 'em say that mar
riage is about played out In the cities.
I have seed better lookln' women than

about two year and I 'lowed after while
that I mought pick up a chunk of a

"Your shirt collar la unbuttoned

"Blast me If I don't go to the black

goln' to run the newspaper.' Never

I have hearn of 'em ridln' straddle and
I don't see why a newspaper shouldn't
"By the way," she said, "I should
like to find some pleasant place to

"You are talkin' sense, now, miss.
Let me see: I live about a quarter of
a mile from here Just an easy walk
and if you don't mind you may board
there. My daughter Nell lives with
me, and you'd like her. Oh, she eats
more book.s than a sheep do straw, al
ways a chawln' 'cm. and you'd git along
well together. She's too smart for this
town, and you and her could trot to
gether right well. Well, I'll send her
over to see you. I reckon you are all
right, leastwise you understand takln
care of yourself. Good day."
She arose and as he reached the door
Bhe called him. "Wilat Is it, mins?"
"Nothing, onl- I hope that you will
not forget t, go by the blacksmith
The. old man puffed and tramped
frc&vlly down the stairs, and at the bot
tom he found Alt' and the other fel
lows watting for him. "Don't put your
self to no uneasiness on her account,
gentlemen," he said. "She can take
care of herself, and If she can't I gad,
I can take care of .her or come mighty
blame nigh It; but I reckon that ex
pression Is a little too strong for a
man that thinks as much of a revival
as I do, and I ask the Lord to excuse
"But hold on and tell us somethln'
about her," Alf Insisted.
"I don't know a blessed thing about
her except that she's all right, and
that's all anybody need to know."
Shortly afterward a young woman
called at the hotel. Introduced herself
to the stranger and said that following
the advice of her father she had come
to sak Miss Lopp to board with her.
"We have a great, big old-fashioned
house," she said, "and you may have
all the room you want, so don't say you
won't. Will you please not say you
The visitor had taken a seat on the
piano stool and not ungracefully was
slowly turning herself half round and
then back. She was a comely clrl and
Jt was evident that she was the belle of
the neighborhood; and It was also evi
dent that she cared nothing for this
distinction, that she had studied and
read herself beyond any companion'
ship that the village might offer, and
that simply to be admired had long
since grown tiresome to her. Miss Lopn
never forgot that pleasing picture, the
dark eyes half humorously pleading,
the abundant hair caught up here and
there as If by graceful and yet careless
dips, the pleasing face and yet a coun
tenance bespeaking strength of will
physical vigor and grace.
"You must not say you won't" the
girl went on, giving Miss Lopp no time
to answer, "until you know how much
1n need of a sensible companion I am.
Father and let me request you not to
pay any attention to his Btrong expres
sions for he Is really the best man you
ever saw well, he does everything he
can to lighten my loneliness, but he
can't do so very much, you know, be.
Ing only a man, and I am actually
hungry for some one to talk to."
i uont see now i can resist so
Strong an appeal," Miss Lopp replied.
"There, I knew you couldn't say you
wouldn't, when, you were brought to
understand It all. And we'd better go
now," she added, springing off the
stool. "You shall have a large front
room, but it has a rag carpet, woven
half sentimentally by a woman that
lives not far from here by half senti
mentally I mean that she thought so
much of me she wove It for half price.
But you don't mind that, do you?"
"What, the sentiment or the half
"Why. the rag carpet, of course. I
didn't know but you might expect vel
vet on the lloor."
"My dear child," said Miss Lopp, "It
was not the thought of a carpet that
brought me Into this neighborhood,
and to tell you the truth I don't care
whether the floor Is covered with a rag
or with sawdust.'"
"Oh, I Just know that I shall like you,
because you are not stupid with even
ness of talk and kiln-dried manners.
So come on and we'll go over right
And so Miss Lopp was Installed In a
large room in an old-fashioned house.
Her two front windows commanded
the drowsy village, the town cow that
looked as though she had been patched,
having so often been scalded by irate
housewives; the prowling hog, the
sport of every dog that found himself
without amusement, the hitching rack
where fanners' nags squealed and bit
at one another. But the two other
windows looked upon the garden, rose
tinted here and there, the dark shade
lying between rows of high peas, a
tangle of plum bushes, a long slope and
The office of the newspaper was
found in a jumbled state, with black
and light types mixed together, but
with the assistance of a boy who had
lung been an apprentice, a decent order
was brought about, and from the very
fast number the paper showed an
Improvement. The paragraphs were
written with vigor that made the
villagers wink as though their eyes
had lighted upon something too bright
for them; and the editorials on natlonul
and International uubjeets were set
forth with that dignity which the
farmer demands that his editor shall
observe. A show of frankness soon
wins the confidence of a southern
town, and Miss Lopp became so evi
dent a favorite that within a month
after her arrival her paper had picked
up an additional circulation of fifty
copies, a marvelous growth, a ntwspa
per miracle In Bioomlield.
Nell soon learned to pick up type,
and was therefore Polly's closest and
most valued companion. They were
rarely seen apart; they strolled In the
woods like lovers, and together they
begged contributions to the mite so
ciety. One afternoon, as they were going
home to enjoy the cool of the garden,
Nell, swinging Polly's hand as they
moved along, declared that Bhe had
never been so happy. "I feel that I
am useful," she said; "I feel that I am
the dearest friend of a woman who
knows something. And do you know
what I have been thinking of? I have
been thinking that we ought to make
a vow never to separate. I told father
the other night that I should never
marry, and If you will live up the same
resolution why we will live together.
There's a stage, and look, there are
three passengers, men, and they are
coming this way."
Polly made no reply, but, leaning
forward, looked eagerly at the men
They had been looking about them,
but upon seeing her they came quickly
forward, and as they approached one
of them called: "Hello. Polly!" and
then each one said: "Hello, Polly!'
Several of the townspeople were
within hearing, and they loitered near
to see what might follow. Polly spoke
to the strangers, and then requested
Nell to walk on, that she would over
take her. Nell hesitated. "Won't you
nleaae walk on?" Polly Insisted. "I 11
soon catch up with you."
Nell obeyed, though not without
muttering an objection, and Polly
stood In the road, talking to the stran
gers. What could it mean? Why were
they so familiar with her ana wny
should she desire to see them alone?
They turned and slowly walked toward
the stage coach, which was to go out
again at once, to take passengers to the
railway ten miles distant, and Polly
talked to thew In low tones, and then
"Miss Polly, What Do It Mean.
they all nodded and smiled. Nell and
the villagers were watching them, and
so was old man Almea, and Just as the
three men had seated themselves In the
coach, the old man, commanding the
dnlver to wait a moment, walked up to
the door and said:
"I am the mayor of this town."
"Sorry for you," one of the men re
plied. "Well, by Satan's hoofs, I like that
but excuse the expression for It's the
strongest I ever did use; but what do
you mean by sneaklii' In here without
lettln anybody know you was comin
an' sne&'kln' out again without lettln'
anybody know why you' did come?
Now what have you got to say?"
' "Shut the door, old man. Tra loo."
"Watt!" the old man commanded
"Who are yiu and what did you want
with this young woman?"
"Oo on, driver. So long, old top."
And off they went.
"Miss Polly," said the old man, iturn-
Ing toward the editor, "what do It
"Your shlnt. collar Is unbuttoned
again," was all she said.
' That evening In the house of old man
A lines there wan a silent supper party
Nell's flowing friendship had been
rudely checked and a sharp heel had
been set upon the old man's dignity.
And It looked as though a coolness
must necessarily follow. The strangers
had brought a mystery with them and
had left It In the village, and In this
mystery stood Polly Lopp.
Not a word had been spoken. Polly
arose to leave the table. Nell looked
up and her countenance was sorrowful.
not so much that there might be a
compromising mystery, but thait It was
kept dark from her.
"Goln Miss Polly?" Almes said.
"Yes, I am through with my supper."
"But wait a moment. Now there's
no need of foolishness between us; we
are your friends and you ought to
speak out. Them men comin' here
and beln' so familiar like with you will
cause a scandal, and It's for me to de
termine as the mayor of this town
whether or not I can stand by you.
But first you must tell me never mind
about my shirt beln' unbuttoned and
all that sort of thing you must tell
me somethln' about them men. Now
"Yes. They came and they went
away. That is all you need to know."
'Not be a slatherln' excuse my
strength no. It ain't. Where did you
I might have met them In a city."
Hah, what's that? Might have met
them In a olty, but why? That's what I
wunt to know. Didn't you hear one of
tlhem refer to me as 'old top,' and I've
been ten years mayor of this town?
Hah, didn't you hear that? And why,
then, tSiould you have mot them in a
city, or anywhere else?"
'When I probably met them years
ago perhaps I was not aware thait they
were going to refer to you as 'old top.' "
Nell laughed, and the old man
scratched his head,. "Well, now we'll
say thi.it you couldn't help meeting
them," he went on, "but we can't say
that you had to become so well ac
quainted with them as to lut 'them call
you Polly. I gad, I don't call you Pol
ly, and I'm the mayor of this town and
have been for ten years this comin'
July, I gad. Hope the Lord will In the
meantime excuse both I gads. Hah,
now answer me that, will you?"
"All that you need to know, Mr.
Almes, you shall know In time."
"Hah, In time? But what will the
people of this town think when they
come to me to find out and I put them
off with your sayln' that they shall
know In time? I gad, miss, when the
people of this town want to know a
thing there ain't no ulch thing as time
the whole scheme Is an eternity until
tlhey find out, and unless they find out
before the next election I'm beaten as
sure as a horn, and I've been mayor so
long now that I can't quit. Set down
here now and tell us, won't you?"
Not this evening. Nell, I'm g"oing
out into (he garden." ,
Polly was sitting In the summer house
when Nell joined her. They were si
lent for a time and then Nell said: "I
am so sorry that anything should have
happened. I was as happy as I could
be until then. Tell me, dear, whait It
all means, and I'll promise to stand by
you, no matter w'hat It Is, for I do think
so much of you, I do, Polly, I love you,
ill facit, and now It does grieve me so to
have anything come between us."
Polly took 'her hand and, holding It,
replied: "There are many features of
life in a city, and some of them might
seem strange to you. That I should
have become acquainted wlBh those
men, was a happening; that they should
have come to -this place Is another hap
pening, and neither happening amounts
to enough to cause any real uneasiness
on the part of my friends. So I beg of
you not to let It worry you."
Oh, It doesn't worry me so far as I
am concerned, but what will the peo
ple say? Indeed, what won't ithey say?"
Nell, the view and the opinion of a
village are necessarily narrow; here
people are suspicious of strangers and
are ever on the lookout for an oppor
tunity to suspect one another, so It
would be quite Impossible for me to
make an explanation that woijld be
satisfactory to them."
'But my dear Polly, you can make
an explanation that will be satisfactory
'Not now, my dear, but aCter awhile
I will. Your father Is calling you."
The old -man stood at the garden
gate, whooping the name of his daugh
ter, and when she -had come to him,
having left Polly sitting on a benah In
the summer house, the old fellow said:
"Nell, go Into the house and stay there
till I come, and When I do come I may
have some mighty Interestln' news for
