Every heart lu bitter wm:
Masks they are, Instead of faces.
Which are passing to and fro.

Could we count the allent tears

Struggling with onjimilon. maybe
Striving 'neath misfortune's ban,

Would we not withhold the censure
Trembling on our thoughtless lips?
Ah I we know not of the trials

Hope and faith in God are stranded; .
Friendship fades like morning dew;
Wrong and scorn have seared and blighted
Hearts that once were brave and true.
Sin and poverty., it may be.

"We'l, let's go down by the brook,

Of course, lie. didn't insult Jier by say

grassy bank, a ml he had a few a very

I bit t Jlu.'ph felt that he had done enough

suddenly, as lie deposited the seven-

I Mind! you'll be in." id he rescued her
adroitly' from overbalancing, as she
hung over the brook. It did not occur
to him that a woman might have lin

"When I'm a woman. Ralph, I'll play
you at tenuis, and beat you," she said.
"Hut you won't care about it really,"
observed be, disregarding the threat
ai unworthy of serious notice. "You'll
like women's things."
"1 don't know, do you? What things
do women like?"
"Oh. llirting: going for walks with
young men: being engaged, perhaps I
expect," answered I'm tie Maudle, wash
ing her aauds in the pool, and waving
them in the air to dry. Will would have
wiped Flo'a hands dry himself, but
iialph merely tossed over bit big pocket

Maudie's eyes sparkled very wickedly.
"Oh, but they could," she averred, "only
they haven't anyone to do them witb.
tloys are . so different than men. Of
course, they can't make love, or any
thing of thataort." .
Kalph rested his chin reflectively up
on his band, and kicked holes 4o ihe
bunk with bis heels. "They don't went
to: they could If they Hked."
"No. they couldn't. You couldn't."
"Yes, 1 could, as well aa you.-" , , f
, "Ob. no. you conldnt. My part k

But flirtation ut first hand seemed
rather awkward, and If any of the fel
lows heard of it! So he paused, doubt
fully, whilst Mandie bit ber lip and
"You'd belter catch some more tid
I filers," she remarked, with a naughty
light dancing in her eyes. "That's the
sort of thing for boys silly, big boys!"
A bad-tempered lad would have
grown angry, and a dull lad would have
felt humbled; but Kalph was neither.
So he just pinched her ear slightly and
teased: "If you found me a very nice
girl, I'd try."
The hot color rushed all over poor
little MaudicVi f.;ce. and something
choking surged up in her throat.
Kalph was so big aiul strong; she did
admire him so much, and looked upon
him as ipiite her property. A tear came
up in her eye-, almost, that he should
want someone uiinM" hutvhedidn't say
"Perhaps 1 ou;-ht to find a girl for
myself .'" he suggested. She nodded,
"She ought to be a bit vounger than

"Well, who shall it tie?" There was a
! mischievous twinkle in his dark eyes,

"You'll change .tour mind, must like

and willfully sllut' Iter eVs. "I don't
see anyone," she said, in a soft, pie iscd
little voice. "You'll drop me, Kalphie."
"Yes, 1 will, if vou don't look at her
and say she's pretty." She opened her
eyes a little, but she looked at l.ini.
"The young person in the water."
"That boy do you mean? No m l,
wry." She turned her laughing, saucy
face up towards lis. Her eyes were so
blue and big, her lung hair brushed so
softly against his face, and her mouth
looked so rherry-ripe and fresh, that
he couldn't help Listing her a good
many times. KiTljdi always did things
m thoroughly, you know! And Maudie
didn't struggle, because a grown-up
won. an wouldn't have, or because she
didn't want to. of both. It's no use
asking me which, for I r.cver could un
derstand female ways; and I don't be
lieve anyone ever could.
Then they sat down very close to
gelher on the bunk of the brook, with
their legs dangling, and saitl nothing
for a moment. She looked half pleased
and half shy; nnd he. to tell the truth,
looked rather foolish.
"I wish I did understand making love.
Maudie girl." said he, slowly.
"Hoys don't like it."
"I cxptet they do, if they once lr
gin." "lint a boy couldn't make love really."
"I'erhaps with practice," he sug
gested. Do you know, I don't think he
was such a very simple boy.
"Oh. no; not really."
"P.eeause he cor.ldn't fall properly in
love. Not very much, you know."
Maudie gazed at hiin with saucer-eyes
that looked fathoms deep. I doubt
whether she was quite a guileless little
girl either; and I don't believe there is
such a thing!
"I think he could." said Ralph, decid
edly, "If the girl were you, Maudie."
"Hut people would laugh at him."
Kalph winced a little. "Of course, he
wouldn't make a fool of himself before
people like - men," he said. loftily.
"But he might like her very much, and
make love to her when no one was
"And he might promise to marry her
alien he grew up; and she might prom
"Y'es they might," murmured
Maudie, looking at her shoes. Then the
boy's great arm went quictlyround her
waist, and she let herself be drawn close
to him, looking as happy as a woman! '
"I know it sounds soft. Maudie." he
aid, bashfully, "but, on my honor, I
do like yon an awful lot I don't think
any girl, was ever hnht so nice. Don't
rou think yon could promise to marry
me when we grow up?" ,
Yes," ahe whispered, nestling her
pretty bead'rlgbt into hi shoulder, "I
wilt, BaJph." And she did! Madame.
