"Aunt Sarah, I have an idea and I
vant your help to carry it out," 6aid
Boh Russell earnestly to Mrs. Briscomb.
"I want you to help me to win (Jertrude
"Why, my dear boy," was the reply.
"I did not know you had seen her," said
the old lady wonderingly.
"Well, my acquaintance with her is
rather short, I confess. I only saw her
talking with you this morning. I heard
her tay that if she ever fell in love it
would ho with a farmer and that she
was tired of everything connected with
city life. I am unfortunately from the
city, hut I am going to transform myself
into a countryman and hire out as a
farm hand to Miss Stone."
And he unfolded his plana for winning
the young lady, and had soon enlisted
his ;M)d natured aunt on his side.
Miss Stone was very much ple:isod with
her new lured hand. Ebon, as by called
himself, lie did not eat with :v knife,
and his grammar was singularly good
for a farm hand.
She did not wonder, when ho drove
her home one night, that he should talk
a good deal, and he was certainly very
"You are fond of farm work and the
country?" Miss Stone was saying.
"Very," Eben rejoined, with much en
thusiasm. "You were brought up on a farm?"
"Well, no not entirely," the hired
"But you chose farm work because
you are fond of it," said Miss Stone
warmly. "In that respect we are ex
actly alike; I love it! I suppose," she
added gently, "that you were obliged to
"I yes, I support myself," Eben re
sponded, with his eyes on his compan
ion's fair face.
"It is nothing to regret indeed it is
not!" Miss Stone declared comfortingly.
"I admire anybody who i3 independent
and ambitious; they're the only people I
do admire. .
"Oh, that is very good in you," the
hired man murmured, tucking trie robe
more closely about her.
"And I suppose you haven't had many
advantages?" Miss Stone pursued with
"Well, I've had some schooling," the
hired man admitted.
"It isn't so great a loss," said Miss
Stone earnestly. "Many of our best and
greatest men had very few educational
opportunities." It sounded somewhat
trite when she had said it; but the hired
man was looking at her with warm grat
itude. "Nothing is to be regretted but
indolence and lack of principle!"
"You are very kind," Eben said in
The moon was just rising; the daisies
in the fields shone white under it, and
tho scent of the fresh crops filled the air.
Certainly tho lured man was not to be
blamed for driving past Miss Stone's
gate when they had reached it, with a
glance at his companion which was the
perfection of respectful deference. All
that night she kept dreaming about this
nature's nobleman whom she had met,
and she thought of going over to Mrs.
Briscomb's and telling her what a won
derful man he was.
Tho next day sho asked Eben to drive
her over to liis aunt's place. Fate must
have had something to do with the car
riage being upset and Gertrude falling
pluuip into his arms, and then and there
he told her how he loved her, and was
promptly accepted. "We need only live
on the farm in summer," said Eben mys
teriously. "What shall we do winters?" said
Miss Stone, wonderingly.
"Well, I've thought of going into the
newspaper business," the liired man rer
And she laughed, in fond enjoyment of
The remark occurred to her three days
later. She went into the city to do a
little shopping, and to break the news of
her engagement to her guardian.
Sho told herself vehemently that she
did not dread the process' in the least;
she was certain that it would not make
the slightest difference 'what anybody
Still she felt a little odd as she walked
up the street from the station. The Eg
berts drove past in their liveried car
riage. The newly married and exces
sively 6tylish Nicolls met her smilingly.
Lottie Hall and her rich young fiance
bowed to her from a dog cart. Well,
r.hs didn't care what they said; sho
should marry Eben though the whole
world should rise up to oppose it.
It waa The Daily Eeiiector building
which pat her in mind cf Eben's joke
about the newspaper business.
Tho aluent publisher of it stood on
tho steps, talking to a gentleman. lie
was an old friend of Miss Stone's, and
ho hurried down to speak to her.
"In for 6ome shopping?" he said. "By
ihs way, wo were just speaking of you.
Hi: Ilussell tells me he lias met you.
Ilr. Eusjcil, here's Miss Storie."
Mr. Russell came down tho steps, with
his hat raised. He was immaculately
arrayed in a pale summer suit, knotty,
silver mounted stick, a high hat and pol

It was not till the publisher had bowed
himself awnjr that they spoke.
"Eben!" Miss Stone gasped.
"Gertrude!" Mr. Russell rejoined.
He had recovered himself and was
smiiing down at her.
"I didn't know you were coming to
day!" "Who who are you? Miss Stone mur
"Well. I'm tho young person you're
going to marry, for ono tiling!" the young
man responded emphatically, and led her
into a neighboring restaurant before say
ing anything mora.
"I couldn't help it!" he declared,
breathlessly, over their untouched cream.
"I couldn't think of any other way, and
I was awfully gone on you from the first
minute. It was in the porch that first
afternoon. I heard what you said, you
know all about frivolous, flippant

appear in my proper character I didn't,
His voice shook with something besides
feeling, and he put his handkerchief to
Miss Stone smiled too, helplessly.
"And you haven't been doing farm
work?" she said.
"Good gracious! I don't know a plow
from a reaier," Bob responded. "I've
been lying about in Aunt Sarah's front
yard when I haven't been with j'ou."

Mine Host and Mark Twain.
Old Mr. A. was once the landlord of a
cozy inn, after a certain attractive, old
fashioned style, and upon the traveled
road between Boston nnd Hartford. One
summer afternoon he was sitting in front
of his establishment, when two figures
loomed up o! the horizon, gradually
materializing into human 6hape as
they approached. Both men were
well dressed, but one of them limped
rather painfully and carried with him
an air of being generally fagged
out. They stopped at the inn and the
limping man asked for a room where he
might lie down quietly and refresh him
self. On the way up stairs he told the
landlord that Ids companion and himself
were walking from Hartford to Boston,
and that he was suffering greatly from
having walked so far in new shoes. The
landlord left his guest and came down
stairs, where, after a little conversation
with the other pedestrian, he finally re
marked: "Well, a man must be a d fool to
start on such a tramp in new shoes!"
"Do you know who that man is?" re
marked the other quietly.
"No," responded the host. "Who is
"That man," replied the other, "is
"Mark Twain!" retorted the landlord
in astonishment. "Then who the devil

Robert Collyer and the Old Bell.
Kobert Collyer has presented Cornell
university with an old bell that has a
romantic history, which is retold by the
reverend gentleman as follows: "Some
years ago tho village in winch I used to
work as a blacksmith was swept away
in order that the site might be used as a
reservoir for the city of Leeds. In this
general destruction the shop in which I
worked as a boy perished. Against the
old bell that used to wake me up very
early in the morning I had a special
grudge. At tho same time I had so
much interest in it that I asked a friend
in the town council at Leeds to see that
when the bell was broken up for old
metal a piece of it should be sent to me
as a paper weight. Tho result was that
the town council voted to send me the
whole belL I have ever since been wait
ing for some appropriate place where it
could be put." Boston Transcript.
A Moral Duly Pointed.
Probably as badly broken up a trio of
hunters never went out on a Sunday
hunt as were Alva Stuck, George Hid
den and Al Carpenter. Either Stuck or
Hadden took Carpenter for a rabbit and
put a few BB shot through his hat.
Stuck lost a 30 watch, then lost a half
day Monday trying to find it. Hadden
became hungry and ate a lot of frozen
apples, which gave him gripes and nearly
cost him his life. Another trio went out
for a hunt the same day, and the next
morning they were arrested for trespass
ing and fined $0.43 each. One went
down on the race to skate, broke through
the ice and came near drowning. All
this on Sunday. Otsego (Mich.) Cor.
I was told yesterday of an attempt to

those people who have bean mangled and
tortured and Cnally killed outright by
medical experimenters could rise up f roni
their graves wliat a vast army it would

course this is not saying anything against
the profession, but only those who belong
to it who do not know their business.
