He felt as if a millstone had been taken from
his neck. The pain and the manner of relief
worked strangely on his sensitive nature, lie
felt that he was in great debt to his companion.
He wanted to kiss the hem of her garment He
wanted to crv. He knew he was feeling and
acting like a fool. He expected that he nhoulJ

listened listene.l wondering why she cared to
listen, little thinking that her sympathy had
brought the awkward student nearer than ho
would havebceu had sho known him halt1 hor
lif e-timo and never seen him in pain. So when
ij pointed out to her tho observatory where he
worked, the queerly shaped building that
showed its dark outlines in the moonlight, just
over the campus ou the hill, she wondered
what it was that prompted her to besr him to
take her there, to exact a promise from him
that, on the verv next evening, he would con
duct her through tho building, that had been
built after her father s orders. She persuaded
herself that it was a desire to see some raaim-
oripts of her father's which Sevmour told her
hau been left there. Perhaps it was.
Notwithstanding her mother's mild remon
strance, tho next evening found her with Brent
Seymour in the telescope room of the observa
tory. The roof h.-id boon let down and she was
watching the stars.

Mrs. Merdon's disapproval of her daughter's
visit to the observatory with Seymour broad
enod into anger as his calls were repeated, and
repeated often. An intimacy grew between
the young people that, even to themselves.thoy
did not undertake to explain. The girl's
friendship had opened a new world to the
hard-worked stndont. Had he known more of
life, he would have known that he was falling
in love. Over the other a secret was stealing
aa steadily as comas over us the morning. A
month had passed since the senior party. Thu

"And do you remember," she was asking,
"that, that evening, you thonght through some
one of them father was looking at us?
Do vou suppose he can soo us. now?"
"Yes'' (in a surprised way. )
"Then" (hesitatingly) "do you think he la
glad is glad to s-e us together?"
"Won't you" (tho voice was very husky)
won't vu answer for me?"
"Yes, she said, in a voico clear aa a harp
chord, "I know he is."
Seymour wondered if his "senses were giving
way. He hardly knew what followed. Ho
meant to ask he tried to ask if she didn't

The Fiffht of the Itraliitvood Coroners
An interesting thing about the Braidwood

coroners. . The mino opening is in Will coun

der the ground of Grundv countv. and the
Will county coroner is holding the inquest,
though the Grundy coroner says Le will put in
a bill for the fees and contest tho matter. This
is too disgusting lo talk about, but it would
not be strange if the surviving miners should
throw some coroner down the hole. Is it pos

county line we should bavo Lad a quarrel hers)

It is but a few years ago that? Atlzona was
looked upon as simply a worthless- doaert
waste, use-loss alike for farming and stock
raising, whilo the owners of a few small mines
which were known and worked labored under
tha great disadvantage of having to rely upon
the slow ox and mule teams for the transporta
tion of their supplies and products. Commu
nication with the outside world was not only
difficult, but the pioneer miners were in sucn
constant dread of Indian raids upon them that
it was impossible o develop Arizona texritorr
irith much success or profit But a great
change has taken place since tn completion
of the Southern Pacific railroad across
the territory, and although the railroad doa
not extend directl v to any of the mining camps,
the increased facilities for transportation, and
tho opening up of the territory In consequence
of it, nave increased its population and de
veloped its mining interests within the past
two or three years wonderfully, and specially

la a Boston icataurant, at dinner recently
sat a man from Cambridge, who was a native
of New Hampshire. Meeting an old rcquuint
anco from that indefinite section known as
"down east," tho conversation soon turned on
family iopies. and tho pair began to talk
about their former neighbor i in a most fa
miliar way. '-Yes," remarked the Cambridge
geutleman, "Sara was in many rcspeots differ
ent from tha rest of the boys. You remem
ber who he married? Well, when the old
man, his father, found that ho was shiuin'
round w ith her, he called him one day in the
barn and Baid: 'Sam, d'ye intend to marry
Baokie?'.. Sam never eaid a word, so tii old
man said: 'Me boy, ye kno all about them.
I can't tell you notion'. Ye know how tho
Bisters has turned out, and not one of them is
sow livin' with their In usbandri.' Sam was as
Bium as a pantomime, and, just as Boon as he
was ready, him and Beckie got tied. They
lived on a farm, and everything went on
smooth fox about a year, and it. came to a hog
bucherin' time. Sam got already to have
the usual parry for the occasion, and, just
as he was sharpen in' up the knives, Beokie
came out and said: 'Sam, I'm goin' borne.'
Sam protested in his quiet way, but it was no
use, so he said he'd get a man to row her
across the pond. It was aliont half a mile
over. She said: "No, ye won't; ye'll row me
over yerself !' Sam told her be couldn't, and
Beckie fired up and said : Then Til drown
meself.' Sam said he'd go with her if she
wanted to do that, so the boat was got ready,
she got in, and they rowed oat till tho water
was twenty feet deep. Then Sam stopped and
said: 'Well, Beckie, this is a good place fur ye
to drown yerself 1' She didn't open her month.
He waited awbils and than said: 'Come,
Beckie, I'm in a hurry to get back.' She
never look up. Sam " put down the oars,
caught hold of her and pitched her in. She
grabbed for the boat, but he wouldn't let her
get near it ' When she was almost done out
ehe said: 'Sam let me in that boat and ye' 11
not hear anvtliing more from me out o the
way.' So he polled her in end they went
back home. - She changed her clothes and en
tertained the guests. They're now nearly 80,
and you never saw a happier old couple did
you? I don't think tbey ever spoke of that
