victim, I have not the slightest doubt,
to Emineline's charms."
"Yes; but will she allow herself to
"Not if she's wise. But here is your
train. Good-bye; and if you break
your heart the great remedy for such
complaints is change of scene, yon
know. If I hear of you in Africa I
shall understand what has happened."
The speakers shook hands. He found
a place in the train, aud she made her
way again to the pony carriage in
which she had driven him to the sta
tion, his farewell words not having
been perhaps exactly what they would
have been if siiokeu in the hearing of
a less limited audience.
"What an idiot he is!" she said to
herself, and then she laughed. The
epithet would not have wounded the
feelings of the most sensitive of mor
tals had he read aright the laugh that
followed it. "Poor George!" was
with a sigh her next comment, aud a
grave look clouded her bright face.
George was the husband for whom
her mourning had now reached the
lavender and white stage. Poor George
he had never liked her cousin. But
there was 110 harm in Dan, absolutely
none. The pony took his time through

Three days afterwards the post
brought a letter, among others, that
was read over more than once by the
recipient. It ran after this wise:
DEAR LYDIA—Words spoken In jest,as you
and the Greeks say, come true. I am en
gaged to Miss Winterton. Kmmeline— for
so I have a right now to call her—made mo
the happiest of men by accepting me this
morning. I feel I cannot let a post go with
out telling you my uews. When I think of
how we made a subject for ridicule and mer
riment of an object to 1110 now so precious,
I indeed come to thecondusion that my fate
is bettor than I deserve. Vours, always affec
tionately, D. FORBES.
T. S.—Emmeline sends her best love, and
counts upon your presence at tho wedding.
Lydia's red and white grew very
vivid as she read this communication
the first time. On the second perusal,
white predominated; on the third, her
color suddenly returned, and she
"He is a silly creature," she told
herself; "I will give hint a good time
in revenge. He deserves it. How
could I be so foolish as to be taken in?
Emmeline! Absurd! Poor old
Emmeline, with her dust cloak aud
bag of ke.vs."
Lydia sat down to her writing-table,
and, looking very much pleased with
herself all the while, wrote as follows:
MY DEAR DAN—I do no; deny that your
note took me it little by surprise, but I am
very, very glad (three underlines to each
very) of what you tell me. Of course, our
foolish little jokes meunt nothing. In fact,
as a blind, people often joke about those
they like best. I think Emmeliue is most
ndmirably calculated to make you happy,
aud I send ray sincerest good wishes for
your future life. Always, dear Dan, with
love to Emmeline,
Your affectionate cousin,
P.S.—Please give the enclosed note to Mrs.
Winterton. I cannot forbear writing just a
lino to her to say how much your engage
ment, of which I have heard
self, I know.
Captain Forbes was at breakfast
when Lydia's letter was brought to
him. The Winterton family were
ranged round the table, and without
reading his own document, he handed
at ouce to Mrs. Winterton the note
enclosed and addressed to her in his
cousin's handwriting. Then he read
what she had written to him, and his
usually lively color turned to a posi
tive gray. This was awful. He had
given to Mrs. Winterton a letter to
say how mnch pleased Lydia was to
have heard from him of his engage
ment to her daughter. What a fright
ful perdicament to be in! He looked
to the head of the table where Mrs.
Winterton, a most grim, stiff and pro
priety-loving specimen of the British
mother, sat behind tho teapot. He
looked across to Emmeline in her
prim, unattractive, old-maidish, latter
youth. How should he ever get out
of this? Of course the letter was all
nonsense. There hadn't been a word
of truth in it. How could there have
been? Really, Lydia might liave
known. He had certainly taken a long
time to compose the effusion and to
make it seem as real as possible;, but
to whom would it have occurred, even
if she had believed such a monstrous
impossibility, that she would have
gone and written off on the spur of
the moment to tho old woman? And
she didn't seem to care one straw.
She believed such an outrageously im
possible thing, without the least hesi
tation or distress! It was nothing to
her; evidently nothing at all. Good
heavens! what a position; what in the
world was he to do? He scarcely dared
lote'i again towards Mrs. Winterton as
she read the most unfortunate and ill
conceived epistle. How furious the
woman would be. He would have to
apologize. He would have to ex
plain that it was only a joke. Only a
joke! that was a pleasant explanation
to have to make. Well, he had been
in some nasty predicaments before in
his life, but this outvied them all.
As soon as the women had left the
room, the door of which he had held
open for them with the most hang-dog
air that human being ever wore, Cap
taiu Forbes sought refuge in the
shrubbery, and racked his brains to
determine upon the best course of con
duct to be pursued under the j>resent
terrific condition of affairs. He had
best, he speedly concluded, go and
have it out with the old woman and
get it over. There was nothing to be
gained by waiting. It was indeed past
praying for. Thereupon he retraced
his steps, and met Mrs. Winterton, as
luck would have it, immediately in the
"May I speak to you for a moment,
Mrs. Winterton?" he asked.
Mrs. Winterton acceded to the re
quest. She was always stiff and for
mal, and whether there was much
stiffness and formality added to what
was usual the unhappy man was too
much embarrassed to rightly deter
"I am sure I am exceedingly sorry
that it should have happened," he be
gan, as soon as he found himself in
the drawing-room. "Had I had the
faintest idea that my cousin would
take it in that way, and that this would
have occurred, I don't know what I
wouldn't sooner have done than write
that letter." Mrs. Winterton made
no reply. Her pale, cold blue eyes
were fixed upon Captain Forbes' agi
tated countenance. "She gives no
help," he thought, "and certainly I
don't deserve it. Ass that I was.i
'Delirious ass,' as Macgregor would
say. You see/' he weut hesitating
and stammering on, "my cousin, Mrs. '
Brackeubury, did not understand that
it was a joke, or, of course, she
wouldn't have written to you treating ,
the matter seriously. No one can :
more regret than I do that I took Miss
Winterton's name in such a way. You
must think it quite unpardonable."
"I do not quite understand you, '
Captain Forbes," Mrs. Winterton re
plied, in her rigid, frozen voice. "I
do not quite understand to what you
"I am alluding to my cousin's letter
to you that she enclosed in one to me.
I gave it to you, not for an instant
supposing that she hadtakeu seriously
what I said about my engagement to
your daughter," Captain Forbes
answered, with the it's-no-use-beat- '
ing-about-the-bush feeling now upper- I
most in his distracted mind.
Mrs. Winterton regarded him with |
a most withering expressing.
"Am I to understand from you Cap- j
tain Forbes," she inquired, "that you
have been amusing yourself, writing
to Mrs. Brackeubury to inform her as
a joke that you were about to become ;
the husband of my daughter?"
"I know it was abominable of me," j
Captain Forbes said. "I see perfectly j
that it was wholly unjustifiable, and I
regret my most atrociously idiotic let- :
ter more than words can say."
"Yours,certainly, seems an ill-timed
pleasantry,"Mrs. Winterton answered,
her blue eyes colder and her icy man
ner icier than ever, "and I should have
known nothing of the nature of your
humor had you not kindly explained
it to me. There was 110 word referring
to your joke in Mrs. Brackenbury's
Poor Captain Forbes, "delirious
ass" twice over ho told himself. If
he'd held his tongue, the old woman
would have known nothing. He might,
he thought, have trusted Lydia not to
have been deceived in the way that,
during the shock of his sudden dis
may, he had supposed. But it was
too bad of her. In the sanctuary of
his own room, he drew writing materi

The next morning he found a tele

"She is really a little wretch," he
thought, smiling. But he could for
give anything better than that she
should have received calmly, even
gladly, the announcement of his en
gagement to—well, to everybody, not
only to poor Emmeline, in fact.

Barefooted Dogs Not Fit for Alaska Ser
Archdeacon Phair, who has spent
many years in the remote northwest
as a missionary for the Church of Eng
land and is at present in Montreal,
states that intending Klondikers who
think of taking dogs with them are
making a very serious mistake. Mr.
Phair says that the "huskies," or Es
quimau dogs, are well protected with
a growth of hair between their toes,
which prevents their feet from being
frozen. Imported dogs liavo not this
necessary pedal extremity protection,
and every dog taken into the Klon
dike during this winter is sure to suf
fer and be rendered quite useless.

been leaving Montreal almost daily

should have to come to such an un
timely end.—Montreal Herald.

An eminent American artist, who is
now an old man, has never forgotten
the lesson he learned from Sir Frede
rick Leighton in his youth. Leigh
ton was then a brilliant and fascinat
ing young painter, whose future was
still before him. He was at work
upon an Italian landscape, or upon a
picture with an Italian background.
In that background he was anxious to
introduce an olive tree. He remem
bered a tree which he had seen in
the south of Italy, and remembered it
quite distinctly enough to reproduce
it, but he was not content to trust his
The American artist remembers how
Leighton came into a cafe in Rome on
his way to Southern Italy, making the
long journey from England for the ex
press purpose of studying that olive
tree and of taking home an exact
sketch of it, and he remembers also
how, four or five weeks later, the ar
dent young Englishman, brilliaut, en
thusiastic, versatile, but with a ca
pacity for taking pains, reappeared
with a wonderful sketch of the olive
tree, upon which he had spent days
of unbroken observation and
work. From this little incident the
American student learned a lesson
which he never forgot, and which want
far to secure the success which came
to him later in life. The story illus
trates the great quality which lies be
