Corinuo Marshall was tho brightest girl la
tlio school district whoro her father's largo,
stony farm was sltuntal. Her mother had
read n translation ot Do Stool's famous ro
mance, henco her daughter's namo, given
with many wishes that tho llttlo maiden
might grow up to lo something out of tho
common onlor. Atflsho studlod grnmmnr,
nud spelled tho big boys nnd girls "down"
nt nn old fnshloued selling school; plainly
tlicro could bo no ipiestlou about her bril
liancy. Thero was n farmer's boy ns well ns n
itaruwr's girl; thoro always Is, only tho boy
Is npt to lie, If moro solid, not so ready not
so "smart," ns tho Now England expression
Is. No speclnl htar had shono over tho boy's
baptismal font, and ho was named plain Job
Job Austin.
Joli's father wna In standing nnd prop
erty nbout on 1111 equality with Co
rhino's, but tho llttlo fellow was no match
for Corlnno. Ilowover, tho young Job
lifted his gray eyes to tho "brightest
girl," drew bcr on ills siod, "towed" her on
tho Ice, brought hor cppcrmlut drops nnd
llcrieo stick, nnd curved various toys for
her nt odd times, such ns bedsteads for her
dolls, nud n set of Wooden dishes for their
ten table,
Whllo Job was still struggling, in tils old
clothes, with "chores" nt homo, and un
known quantities nt school, his llttlo favorlto
was sent to llvo with her mint In tho villa go,
n dozen miles nwny, for tho sako of greater
educational privileges. Thero tlio smart girl
dovoloicd rapidly. Sho coon showed n ro
mnrknblo gift of oxpresalou, nml in tho de
partment of composition easily led her
school, beenmo tho editor of tho school
"pnier," tho president of n literary society,
nnd withal n very careless student. To keep
up In her classes required 110 cITorttnnd she
fell Into tho error of thinking Hint success
would conio to her without hard work.
In tho inenntlmo Job showed n imtlonos
equal to that or Ills widely known namesake.
Ho extracted roots, cube and square, to say
nothing of "grubbing" roots on tho old
farm j nud every step ho took ho cleared tho
wny of all dlilleultles. No half way work
for Job. Ho was still nwkwnrd, ill
dressed, hesitating, nnd ho blushed furiously
just nt tho times nnd on tho occasions when
bo most desired to appear cool nnd colloctod.
Many n tlmo ho had begun a. letter to Corlnno,
sitting nt his desk nt noon tlmo, or nttcr
school, anxiously trying to compose n docu
ment worthy of so bright a being. But,
though ns patient ns tho original Job, ho novor
succeeded lu finishing n letter that ho thought
good enough.
At last n turn enmo In tho tido of Job's life.
A literary gentleman in Bagdad, tho villago
whore Corlnno wns living nt her mint's,
offered to "board nnd school" him in return
for such holp ns tho boy could easily glvo
morning nnd evening. Ho was to cuter tho
graded school, nmd on examination wns found
ready Tor tho Intermediate department,
Corlnno was lu n private school for girls. It
wns not long before tho two old friends met
In tho street. Corinuo wns with half udozen
gay school girls.
"Who Is that fellow with hayseed In his
hair!" asked ono of them, ns Job enmo to
ward them smiling nud blushing. Corlnno
bowed coolly, pretending not to soo tho out
stretched hand, nnd hurried on.
"A mistake," sho saliL "I look llko dozens
of other jiooplo, it seems." Corlnno Justified
this stoty to her couscicnco on tho ground
that Job had really made a mistake in sup
posing sho was going to keep up tho old
Job thought, generous fallow, that It was a
vcrltnblo mistake A llttlo near sighted, ho
often mndo mistakes ot identity; nnd ho
promised himself to look moro carefully next
tlmo ho mot n group of young lailits, blush
ing tho deepest peony red in thinking of his
Corlnno nowontorcd upon a new period of
her Inspired career. Sho wrotonpoem I Sitting
In hor room nfter study hours, with her hair
down nud her hands pressed to her tcmplca,
sho slowly ovolvod tho wondrous thing. How
astonished sho was to find thnt she, Corlnno
Marshall, could actually wcavo rhymes and
sentiments and flowers of speech llko tho real
poeti whom sho worshlied afarmoffl Sho
showed tho celestial manufacture to her own
special girl friend, Cecilia Hopkins. It was
one of those twilight hours of loving com
munion ovor tho fire, when, with arms
around each other's waists, school girls toll
tho dearest frionds everything, that tho
poem was brought out and read.
Cecilia was In raptures. Sho always know
her darling Corlnno was a genius. And
where would sho send itf
"Send it!"
"Yes; to whnt magnzlno or nowspnpcrl
Surely tho world should not bo deprived of
Now, unknown to Corlnno, tho gentleman
with whom Job was living wns tho editor ot
Tho Bagdad Carrier Dovo, a shcot devoted to
news nud olegnut culture.
"I'll send It to Tho Dovo," said Corlnno,
nfter hor friend hmL loft her to tho literary
loUuro sho longed for. "Yes, to Tho Dovo,
on whoso whlto wings it shall bo wafted
far away to meet kindred hearts."
Carefully was tho poem copied and re
coplcd, till, In appearance, nt least, it was
worthy ot tho classlo namo signed boldly nt
tho closo. In tho chill dusk of a winter oven
Ing a young girl might hnvo been seen walk
ing up and down tho street, casting longing
glances ntn lamp post; for tho nuthor's
heart failed her at tLolast moment. But
tho nppenrauco ot a teacher brought matters
to a crisis, nnd thocnvolopo weighted with
destiny was dropped through tho iron slit.
Tho boy in tho ofllco ot Tho Dovo, by this
tlmo highly prized by tho editor, recognized
tho old tlmo quirks and rralrls, tho tails of
tho gM and y's nnd q's, nnd tho heavy shad
ing of tho upward strokes. Ho helped tho
crudo llttlo "poem" Into n corner of Tho Car
rior, his heart beating with manly pleasure
at doing a service for his llttlo lovo.
Corlnno was mado a poet by acclamation
In tho school room; for of courso tho author
ship of "Llfo's Disappointments" was nn open
secret Fifty copies of I no Carrier wero
ordered, nnd tho ofllco boy was sent with
them to Mrs. Deportment's school. Ho nr

were "taking exorcise." Borao were promo
cadlug, somo dancing, somo chatting, somo
swinging dumbbells, somo tossing a shuttle
"Tho copies of Tlio Carrier Dovo you sent
for," said Job, addressing tho girls en 'masse.
All occupations were deserted, and tho
girls, acting from a common Impulse ot fun,
came forward to interview tho "devil," as
they wero pleased to call Job. Tboymado
bun take a chair on tho platform, they asked
him nil kinds of questions concerning edi
torial and no wsrv-rwr interiors; finally they
introduced, with mock cereiuouy, tho distin
guished authoress, Corinne, Job's face
lighted up. Here was relict from bis tor
Not a sign did Corinne give that she recog
nised her old friend; indeed, she joined la
tho fun at bis expense, Toor Job bad greater
need than ever of the qnsdlty associated with
his name, and only oa the riag tag of the bell
calling the girls to lessees was be released.

As for Corluue, sho Is nt homo on tho old
stony farm. Her mother Is dead, and sho is
her father's housekeeper. Hho has taken a

"declined with thanks" have made her desire

Corlnno takes tho totter humbly nud puts
It In her jweket. By nnd by sho goes out into
tho blossoming orchard and opens tho edi
torial envelope, walking up nnd down under
tho fragrant trees. There is tlio poem In
which so much hopo hnd been folded, and a
long letter In n bold, firm hand.
"Miss A. B. C. shows facility. Thero nro

by writing nu artlclo on somo subject of

discriminating advice, worth more than gold

"Wrlto nbout something of which I hnvo

breale a branch ot upplo blossoms. "What
do I know!'' Sho looked Into tho tinted cum

down upon tho turf In sorrowful abandon;
"but I can learn." This correlative enmo

A fow days after this Corlnno received by

To tho old orchard trees tho girl w ont In her
excitement and Joy. They were bare; ompty
nests hung from their boughs; nnd tho dead
grass nbout them was flecked nnd patched
with snow. But in Coiluno's hoart tlicro
was summer. Mr. Utolle's nolo was so kind,
so ciicournging; ho praised her style, ho
suggested books for her to read; ho promised,
If sho worked and stu lied, n uoblo success by

raising, silk spinning, flower culture, etc.
nnd ndvised a reading up of tho subjects and
articles on tho samo.
"In tho meantime," said ho, "keep your

country world worth writing about. In some
out of door searching, a real poem may show
itself in mass or lichen, tho glauco of a llttlo
wlldwood dweller, or tho flash of a jonelcd
It was n year from tho tlmo that Corinno
questioned tho applo blossoms lu her despair.
It was noised nliout that IMltor Htoilo was
visiting in tho neighborhood, Corlnno's inti
mate friends, tho "heartless brother" nnd tho
oufant t err 1 bio Included, began to anticipate
n triumph for their frlond and sister. Sho
wns n corresixmdent of Low Etoilo's a
fnvorlto contributor to tho Tho Peoplo.
No ono else with so much right could asplro to
tho great man's favor.
In tho courso of tlmo Corlnno wns invited
to a gnnlon party to meet tho star, Tho hour
camo, and tho editor was introduced. Corlnno
stepped forward eagerly, all smiles. The
gentleman bowed jiolltely, oxnetly as to
twenty others to whom ho had been present
ed. Tho w holo company, looking on, under
stood Corlnno's humiliation. Sho soon
slipped away, and on lenching homo went
wandering undor tlio blooming orchard trees.
"How liaudsomo ho 1st How distinguished
his stylo I Nobody nt tho party could com
pare wiin mm. uniy a littio oiucr man 1,
and ho ha3 almost a national reputation!"
So Corlnno mused, hs she walked up und
down tho fragrant, wind blown alloys.
Br and by sho seated herself, and, taking
pencil and paper from hor tockot, began to
Fcribblo, ns tho best wny of forgottlng hor
disappointment. Gradually n sense of tho
lncftablo beauties ot her llttlo comer of tho
earth stolo over hor. 80ft, fragrant air,
nzuro sky, whlto banks of vapor, rosy shapes
ot bud nnd bloom, tho humming of happy in
socts, tho trill of homo going birds, tho lovely
greenery of notched and scalloped and blado
slinpod leaves all uot nnd mingled In hor
sou), producing a sort of ecstasy. Her
thoughts began to tako rhythmical form, and
a genuine poom grew under her almost un
conscious hand.
As sho sat loaning ngalnst a gnarled old
trunk, pink potals nestling In tho crimps of
her black hair and in tho folds of hor palo
bluo gauzy dress, sho mado n charming pic
ture. At toast so thought tho distinguished
"Mr. Etolle," coming gently along tho or
chard path, his footfalls hushed by the
matted turf.
"Corinno I"
"Mr. Etollol"
Tho girl rose, tier cheoks hot with blushes.
"Forglvo mo for treating you bo badly just
now. Let ns walk undor tho trees and talk
about old times. Do you romembor tho day
1 pulled you out of tho cranberry bog when
you broko through tho ico and thought you
wore drowning!"
Corinuo looked up in nmazemont. It was
yes.ltwns Job Austin; light locks, freckles,
and all
"Do yon forglvo mor ho persisted.
"I think wo aro quits," sho said, now nbls
lo look up roguishly through her blushes.
"Strnngo I didn't rccognlzo you when you
were Introduced to mo today."
"Don't speak of that," said Job. "What
is this!" and ho took possession, as by edito
rial right, ot tho paper fluttering in her
band. Ilia faco grew radiant as bo read.
"Dear old comrade," bo said, "I havotiot
been disappointed In Vou. This is genuine,
and it Is beautlf ul I it is n growth, uot a bit
of manufacture."
When "tho planet and his satellite," as
Corlnno's saucy sister called them, loft the
orchard, there was a happy light in both
their faces. Thereafter literary affairs called
them often together. As to sentiment, tho
