"Lyndall made him angry." said the
girl tearf ally; "and be has given me
tjie fourteenth of John to learn. He
soys he will teach me to behave my
self when Lyndall troubles him."
"What did she do?" asked the boy.
"You see." said Em, hopelessly turn-
fciir the leaves, "whenever he talks
she looks out at the door, as though
she did not hear blm. Today she ask
sd him what the signs of the zodiac
were, and he said he was surprised
ahat she should ask blm; it was not a
fit and proper thing for little girls to
tulk 'about Then she asked him who
Copernicus was. and he said he was
one of the emperors of Rome, who
burned the Christians in a golden
pig. and the worms eat him up while
be was still alive. I don't know why,"
said Em plaintively, "but sh just put
her books under her arm and walked
out and she will never come to his
school again, she saya, and sue ai-i
ways docs what she says. And now
I must sit here every day alone," said
Em, the griat tears dropplug softly.
Torhaps Tant' Sannie will send him
away." said the boy In bis mumbling
way, trying to comfort her.
"No," said Ein. shaking her head,
"no. Last night when the little Hot
tentot maid was washing her feet he
told her he liked such feet and that
fat women were so nice to him, and
abe said I must always put him pure
oream . in bis coffee now. No; he'U
sver go away," said Em dolorously.
The boy put down his skius and
tumbled la his pocket and produced
a small piece of paper containing some
fcing. 0e stuck It out toward her.
There, take It for you," he said,
tills was by way of comfjrt ,
Em opened it and found a small bit
f gum. a. commodity prized by the
Ohildren. but the great tears dropped
down slowly on to It
Waldo was distressed, ne had cried
so much In bis morsel of life that tears
in another seemed to burn bim.
"If." he said, stepping in awkwardly
and standing by the table, "if you will
not cry, I will tell you something, a
"What Is it?" asked Em, Instantly
becoming decidedly better.
"You will tell It to no human being?"
He bent nearer to her and with deep
solemnity said: (
"1 have made a machine!"
Em opened her eyes.
"Yes. a machine for shearing sheep,
(t Is almost done." said the boy.
"There Is only one thing that is not
right yet. but it will be soon. When
you think and think and think all night
and all day. it comes at last," be added
"Where Is it?"
"Here! I always carry It here." said
the boy. putting his band to his breast,
where a bulging out was visible. "This
to a model. When It is done, they will
have to make a large one."
"Show It me."
The boy shook his bead.
"No. not till It Is done. I cannot let
ray human being see It till then."
"It is a beautiful secret," said Em.
and the boy shuffled out to pick up his
That evening father and son sat In
the cabin outing their supper. The fa
ther sighed deeply sometimes. Per
haps he thought how long a time It
was since Bonaparte bad visited the
cabin, but bis son was In that land in
which sighs have no part It Is a ques
tion -whether it were not better to be
the shabbiest of fools and know the
way up the little stair of Imagination
to the land of dreams than the wisest
erf men, who see nothing that the eyes
do not show and feel nothing that the
bands do not touch. The boy chewed
bis brown bread and drank his coffee,
but In truth he saw only his machine
finished, that hist something found out
and added. He saw It as It worked
with beautiful smoothness, and over
and above, as be chewed his bread and
drank his coffee, there was that de
lightful consciousness of something
bending over him aud loving him. It
would not bave beou better In one of
the courts of heaven, where the walls
are set with rows of the King of
Glory's amethysts and milk white
pearls, than there, eating Ids supper in
tiiat little room.
As they sat In silence there was a
knock at the door. When It was open
ed, the small woolly head of a little
Igger showed Itself. She was a mes
senger from Tant' Sannie, The Ger
man was wanted at once at the home
stead. Putting on bis hat with both
hands, be hurried off. The kitchen
was In darkness, bat In the pantry be

pepper between two stones knelt on
the floor, the lean Hottentot steod with
a brass candlestick in her hand, and

hand on each hip. was evidently listen
ing intently, as were her companions.
"What mar It be?" cried the old
German in astonishment
The room beyond the pantry was the
storeroom. Through the thin wooden
partition there arose at thnt Instant,
evidently from some creature ensconced
there, a proloajrod m:J proulglous howl.
followed bv a succession of violent
blows against the partition wall.
The German seized the churn stick
and was about to rush round the
house when the Boer woman Impress
ively laid her hand upon his arm.
'That Is his head," said Tant' San
nie; "that Is his head."
"But what might it be?" asked the
German, looking from one to the other,
churn stick In hand.
A low h6Uow bellow prevented re
ply, and the voice of Bonaparte lifted
Itself on high.
"Marv Ann, my angel, my wife!"
"Isn't it dreadful?" said Tant' Sannie
as the blows were repeated fiercely
"He has got a letter. His wife Is
dead. You must go and comfort him."
said Tant' Saunle at last, "and I will
with you. It would not ue tne
thing for me to go alone me, wno am
only 33, aud he an unmarried man
now," said Taut' Saunle, blushtng and
smoothing out her apron.
Unon tula they all trudged round
the house in company, the Hottentot
maid enrrvhiff the light Tanf Sannie
and the timau following and the.
Kaffir girl bringing up the r?r.
"Oh," 6id Tanf Sannie, ''1 see uotf
It wasn't wickedness made him do
without his wife so long, only neces
sity." At the door she motioned to thts Ger
man to enter and followed him closely.
On the stretcher behind the sackaBona
parte lay on his face, his head pressed
.Into a pillow, his legs kicking gently.
The Boer woman sat down on a box at
the foot of the bed. The German stood
With folded bands looking on.
"We must all die," said Tant' Sannie
at last. "It Is the dear Lord's will."
Hearing her voice, Bonaparte turned
himself on to his back.
"It's very hard." said Tant' Sannie,
"I know, for I've lost two husbands."
Bonaparte looked up Into the Ger
man's face. 1
"Oh, what does she say? Speak to
me words of com fort !'
The German repeated Tant' Sannie's
"Ah, I I also, two dear, dear wives,
whom I shall never see any moref
cried Bonaparte, ,flinglng btmself back
upon the bed.
He howled until the tarantulas that
lived between the rafters and the zinc
roof felt the unusual vibration and
looked out with their wicked bright
eyes to see what was going on.
Tant' Sannie sighed: the Hottentot
maid sighed: the Kafflr girl, who look
ed in at the door, put her hand over
her mouth and said, "Mow wah!"
"You must trust In the Lord." said
Tant' Sannie. "lie cau give you more
than you have lost."
I do, 1 do!" he cried. "But. oh, t
have no wife! I have no wife!"
Tant' Sannie was much affected and
came and stood near the bed.
"Ask him if he won't have a- little
pap nice. fine, flour pap. There Is
some boiling on the kitchen Are."
The German made the proposal, but
the widower waved bis band.
"No: nothing shall pass my lips. I
should be suffocated. No, no! Speak
not of food to me!"
"Pap and a little brandy in," said
Tanf Sannie coaxingly.
Bonaparte caught the word.
"Perhaps, perhaps if, I struggled
with myself for the sake of my duties
I might Imbibe a few drops." he said,
looking with quivering lip up loto the
German's face. "1 must do my duty,
must I not?"
Tanf Sannie gave the order, and the
girl went for the pap.
"I know how it was when m.v first
husband died. They could do uothing
with nie." the Boer woman said, "till
I had eaten a sheep's trotter and honey
and n little roaster cake, I know."
Bonaparte siit up on the bed with his
legs stretched out lu front of him and
a bnnd on each knee, blubbering softly
"Oh. she was a woman! You ore very
kind to try to comfort me. but she wa
my wife. Tor a woman thru Is my
wife I could live, for the woman that h
my wife I could die, for n woman that
Is my wife 1 could Ah. that sweet
word wife! When will It rest upon mj
When bis feelings had subsided a lit
tie. he raised the corners of his turned
down mouth and spoke to the German
with flabby lips.
"Do you think she understands me?
Oh, tell her every word, that abe may
know I thank hert"
At that Instant the girl reappeared

Taut Sannie poured some of Its con
tents Into, the basin, stirred it well and
came to the bed.
"Oh. I can't. I can't! I shall die. 1
shall die!" said Bonaparte, putting his
hand to his side. '
Come, just a little." said Tant' San
nie coaxtncly. "lust a drop."
"It's too thick, It's too thick. I snouia
Tanf Sannie added from the contents
of the bottle and held out a spoonful.
Bonaparte opened his mouth like a lit
tle bird waiting for a worm ana ueui u
opeu as she dipped again and again
into the nan.
"Ah. this will do your heart good!"
said Tauf Sannie. In whose mind the
relative functions. of heart and stom
aeh were exceedingly ill defined.
When the basin was emptied, the
violence of his grief was much as
aii.LTP(t He looked at Tanf Sannlo
with gentle tears.
"Tell him." said the Boer woman,
"that I hone he will sleep well and that
the Lord will comfort him as the Lord
"P.less vou. dear friend! God bless
you!" said Bonaparte. .'
When the door was safely shut on the
German, the Hottentot and the Dutch
woman, he got off the bed and washed
away the soap be had rubbed on his
"Bon." he said, slapping bis leg. "you
are the cutest lad 1 ever came across.
If you don't turn out the old hymn's
and nrayers. and pummel the ragged
coat, and get your arms round the fat

mighty and more mighty day by day.
He visited the cabin no more, sat close
to Tanf Sannie drinking coffee all the
evening and walked about loftily with
his hands under the coattalls of the
German's black cloth and failed to see
even a nigger who wished bim a defer
ential good morning. It was therefore
With no small surprise that the German
perceived Bonaparte's red nose at bis
"Walk In, walk In," he said Joyfully.
"Boy, boy, see If there is coffee left
Well, none. Make a Are. We bave
done supper, but"
"My dear friend," said Bonaparte,
taking off his hat, "I came not to sup,
not for mere creature comforts, but for
an hour of bootherly intercourse with a
kindred spirit The press of business
and the weight of thought, but they
alone, may sometimes prevent me from
sharing the secrets of my bosom with
him for whom I have so great a sym
pathy. You perhaps wonder when 1
shall return the two pounds"
"Oh, no. uo! Make a'fire, make a fire,
boy. We will have a pot of hot coffee
presently." said the German, rubbing
his bands ami looking about not know
ing bow best to show his pleasure at
the unexpected visit.
For three weeks the German's diffi
dent "Good evening" bad met with a
stately bow. the chin of Bonaparte
lifting Itself higher dally, and his shad
ow had not darkened the cabin door
way since he came to borrow the two
pounds. The German walked to the
head of the bed and took down a blue
bag that bung there. Blue bags were
a specialty of the Germans. He kept
above 00 stowed away In different cor
ners of his room, some filled with curi
ous stones, some with seeds that had
been in his possession 15 years, some
with rusty nails, buckles and bits of
old harness, in all a wonderful assort
ment but highly prized.
"We bave something here not so
bad," said the German, smiling -know

and took out a handful of almonds and

"but her heart Is on her right side. I

earth with lofty eyelids might ex

The German here got up to bring a
coal for Bonaparte's pipe, aud they
sat together talking for awhile. At
length Bonaparte knocked the ashes
out of bis pipe.
"It is time that I took my departure,
dear friend," he said, "but In-fore I
do so shall we not close this evening
of sweet communion and brotherly In
tercourse by a few words of prayer?
Oh, how good and how pleasant a

"A fine boy."
But. though the loy nodded before

all knelt down to pray.
When they rose from their knees,
Bonaparte extended his band to Waldo
and patted him on the head.
