It was on a cold October evening, when Helen
Donald and myself were returning, with our
parents, from a neigboring hamlet. As we ap
proached a ford where the water ran Somewhat
higher thanankle.deeP, we prepared to carry
Helen cease, as we were' accustomed to, with
liandsinterwoven, "chair fashion," and thus
carried-our pretty passenger .Over the brook._
Just as we were in the middle of the water-- 7 .
which was cold enough at the time to have
frozen anything like feeling out of boys lesti

nipped •rny ' heart. Why it was, I _knew not,.
for we bad oarried laelen..fifty times across the
brook era now, vgithout emotion,-but this even-,
thought or fancied that Helen gave Don undue preference by casting her arm

my Side-by holding the ear of my jacket.
No names can burn so quickly or with so
little fuel as jealousy. Before we had reached
the opposite bank, I was wishing Donald at
the " botttim of the sea." Being naturally
impetuous, I burst out with— '
“-Ye need- ha hand eo gingerly, Helen, as •if
ye feared:a fa," I can aye carry ye lighter than
Donald can half of ye."

her like an infant to the middle of,-.the water.
