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 friendship. 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 boldness. 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 Euchagoml" 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 rlvcd at tho recreation hour, when tho young ladles, a gay, fluttering, bright eyed crowd, were "taking exorcise." Borao were promo cadlug, somo dancing, somo chatting, somo swinging dumbbells, somo tossing a shuttle cock. "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 mentors. 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. 1 tlu uH nf In fun. Tfc vcunxr ladlaa j . AA-tffi of Mmo. Deportment's school nro scattered fnr nnd wldo; somo nro married, oomo are teachers, somo nro bmy with tho wenrlsomo cothlngs of gay society. 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 nom do pluuio, for rejieatod ox)crleuccs of "declined with thanks" have made her desire to hldo her Identity. Nevertheless, certain successes have kept her In heart nnd hopo; nnd ns sho Is yet scarcely twenty, sho still looks forward lo a distinguished literary career. In tho inenntlmo a now light hnsnrlsen. Far nnd wldo tholetters, stoi icsntid scientific articles of 1jw Ktollo are known nud ml inlrcd. It Is nnnounml that ho Is to estab lish n Journal, called Tho People, In n town not n thousand miles from tho Marshall farm. Corlnno, on tho lookout for now wot Ids to conquer, a si "Thorn Is n chnnco for mo." Shoprepaiesn piece of verse, elaborate, ro mantic, nml not without merit. Sho sends It, with a nolo Inclosed signed by her own namo, to tho great Mr. Ktollo, Then through weeks of smqiciiM) sho waits. "It's como back," shouts her heartless llttlo brother, swinging 11 letter over his head, nud nulto losrardlessof tho prcsoucoof 11 neigh borhood gossip. "What fnakes you keep n-scndln' stufF to tho editors!" says her sister, nu enfant terri ble, who Is great lu mathematics nnd do spiscs her older sister's namo nml pretensions. 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 hints of tnlont. Will sho obllgo tho editor by writing nu artlclo on somo subject of which sho has knowledge positive, clear In formation!" Tho letter wont on with kind, discriminating advice, worth more than gold to n girl liko Corinuo. "Wrlto nbout something of which I hnvo knowledgol" repeated tho girl, stopping to breale a branch ot upplo blossoms. "What do I know!'' Sho looked Into tho tinted cum ns if for nn answer. "I don't know any thing," sho Bald prefiontly, throwing herself down upon tho turf In sorrowful abandon; "but I can learn." This correlative enmo nttcr a burst of toars uud nu hour's reflec tion. A fow days after this Corlnno received by mall n treatise ou tho keeping of poultry, which she herself had ordored. This sho set herself to study, nnd soon becamo interested in details of breed, feeding, bousing, etc All tho books and uowspnors of Importance bearing ou tho subject Corinuo read indus triously. Thon cimo practical work. After six months' oxporicuco tho young lady wroto a modest nrtlclo on "Poultry liaising," nnd sent it to Tho People. A cordial nnswor was received with n liberal check Corlnno' first conqiensatlon for literary work. 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 nnd by uot necessarily in jwultry articles, though said articles suited Tho Peoplo to n, dot, nnd ho wished moro of them. Ho nnvticd various hooka ou industrial subjects Tiao 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 oyes opon. There must bo much in 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 brook." 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 gossips of tho neighborhood aro about equally divided; a part asserting vehemently that It is n heart affair, tho others denying tho same with equal earnestness, Mrs. M. r.
