ANCIENT LOVE STORY.
I sat spinning at my little wheel In
the sun, for the autumn day wascold,
when i heard someone whistling;and,
looking up, theie was young Squire
Turner loaking over. When he caught
my eye he laughed, I blushed, and
rose and made him a courtesy.
" j was a handsome gentleman, the
squire, and the band from which he
pulled the glove shimmered in the
tun with pearls and diamonds; and
he was bonny to look at with his hair
like spun gold in the October sun
light. When I courtesied he bowed, mak
ing his curls dance over his shoulders,
and said he,
"I've spoiled one pretty picture
that I could have looked at all day,
but I've made another, so I'll not
grieve. May I come in?;'
'And welcome, sir," said L. and
placed a chair for him.
He was grandfather's landlord, but
for all that I felt uncomfortable, Tor
I was not used to One company.
He talked away, paying me more
compliments than I was used to, for
grandmother, who bad brought me
up, said, "Handsome is as handsome
does," and "Beauty is butskin deep."

the truth. 1 had doue wrong about
one thing. Neither of the old folks
knew that I wore Evan Lock's ring
In my bosom, or that we'd taken a
vow to each other beside the haw
thorn that grew in the lane. I never
meant to deceive, but grannie was
old, and a little hard, and that love
of mine was such a sweet secret Be
sides, money seems to outweigh all
else when people have struggled all
their lives to turn a penny, and they
knew Evan was a poor, struggling
young surgeon. I thought I'd wait a
while until I could sweeten the news
with the fact that he'd begun to
make his fortune.
Grannie came in from the dairy five
minutes after the squire was gone,
and heard be had been there. 1
didn't tell her of his fine speeches, but j
there was a keyhole to the door she
came through, and I have a guess she
That night we had something else
to think of. Misfortune had come
upon grandfather; but I didn't fore
see that, when the half year's rent
should tome due, not a penny to pay
it would be found.
All this time Evan Locke and I had
been as fond as ever of each other,
and he came as often as before to
talK wun grandpa on winter uiguus,
and still every little while young
Squire Turner would drop in and sit
In his lazy way, watching me knit or
spin. Once he was flushed with wine
and over bold, for he tried to kiss me.
But 'squire or no, I boxed his ears,
ana not more gently than I could help,
I could not prevent his coming, and
I did not deserve that Evan should
be angry with me. But he was oh,
so high and mighty, and spoke as
though one like the squire could mean
no good by coming to so poor a place
as tbe school-master's. He made me
angry, and I spoke with asperity.
"For that matter, the squire would
be glad to bave me promise to marry
him," said L "He thinks more of
me than "
"Maybe yon like him better!"
"I don't say that But bad temper
and jealousy scarce make me over
fond of another. I pray I may never
hare a husband who will scold me."
Well, Bran was wroth with, me and
I with him not heart-deep, though,
I thought and 1 did not see him for
more than a week. I was not troubled
much, though. I knew he would come
round again, and maybe ask my par
don. For before you are wed you can
bring your lover to his senses. So I
did not fret at Evan's absence, nor
quite snub the squire, who liked me
more than ever. But one night
grandfather came in, and shutting
the door stood between grandmamma
and mc. looking at me, and so
Urangely that we both grew fright

"Wilt have him and be a rich

"So:" I sobbed.
"The lass is frightened," said
grandmamma. "Say, we mast all
wed once in our lives, my child."
Then grandpapa talked to me. He
told me how poor they had grown,
and how kind the squire was, and I
had but to marry him to make my
grandparents free from debt and pov
erty all their lives. If I refused and
vexed the squire, Heaven only knew
what might happen.
"Surely stoe'll never ruin us,"
"All, it was hard to bear, but now
there was no help for it. I took the
ring from my bosom, laid it on my
palm, and told them it was Evan
Locke's, and that I had plighted my

railed me a deceitfut wench, and
grandpa looked as though his heart

I would never marry Evan Locke.
The days passed on and he never
came near me.
"Oh, it is cruel in him to hold such

I love him."
Grandmamma would scarcely look

She went to kitchen door and beck

Coombs, who had come with eggs.
"I heard you rightly," she said.

"I don't believe it," said I.
"Tbey have sold the house and gone
to Liverpool to take ship; and you
may find the truth for yourself, if you
choose to take the trouble. I'm no
chatterbox to tell falsehoods about
my neighbors," said Dame Coombs.
And still I would not believe it un
til I had walked across the moor and
seen the shutters closed and the door
barred, and not a" sign of life about
the place. Then I gave up hope. I
went home pale and trembling, and
sat down at grannie's feet
"It is true," I said.
"And for the sake of so false a lad
you'll see your grandfather ruined and
break his heart, ana leave me a widow
1 who have tended you from a baby. "
I looked at her as she sobbed, and
found voice to say:
"Give me to whom you will, since
my own love does not want me. "
I crept up-stairs and sat down on
my bedside, faint and trembling. I
would have thanked Heaven for for
getfulness just then, but it would not
come. - .
The next day the young Squire was
in the parlor as my accepted lover.
How pleased be was, and how the
color came back into grandfather's
old face! Grannie was proud and
kind, all the house was aglow, and
only I sad. But I could not forget
Evan Evan whom I had loved so,
sailing away from me without a
I suppose they all saw I looked sad.
The Squire talked of mv health, and
would make me ride with him over
the moors for strength. The old folk
said nothing. They knew what ailed
me; only our little Scotch maid
seemed to' think that aught was
wrong. Once she said to me:
"What alls ye, miss? Your eye is
dull and your cheek is pale, and your
braw, gran' lover canna mak' ye
smile; ye are na' that ill, aither, 1
"No, I'm well," wild I.
She looked at me wistfully.
"Gin ye'd tell me your all, I might
tell ye a cure," she said.
But there was no cure for me In
this world, and 1 couldn't open my
heart to simple Jennie. So the days
rolled by, and I was close on my mar
riage eve, and grannie and Dorothy
Hume were busy with my wedding
robes. ' I wished It were my shroud
they were working at Instead.
.One night the pain In my heart
grew too great, and I went ont among
the purple heather on the moor, and
there knelt under tbe stars and prayed
to he taken from the world.
Oh, Evan, my Bran, how can 1
live without thee?" I cried.
As I spnkettoe wordslstarted upln
affright and then at mr aide was an
elfish little figure, Scotch Jennie, who
had followed me.
"Why do ye call for your true love
now?" she asked. "Ye tent him fra
ye for the sake o the yoang quire."
I tamed on nor fiercely. ,
How dare you follow me and watch

'There's na a drop o' true bluid in any '
woman:' And he turned to the wall
and covered his eves, an' your grannid
drove home. That's all I ken wuU
it do?" !
"Ay, Jennie, "said I: "Heaven bless '
you for telling me!"
I flew to the cottage and stood be
fore grannie. Trembling and white)
"Tell me, grandma, have yoii
cheated me and robbed me of my love
by a lie? Did you steal the troth
ring from my neck and give it to
Evan as if from me? you whom I'vo
loved and honored m life long"'
She turned scarlet
"Your love:" said she. "You've
but one true love now tlie s iuire."
"You have done it:" lcried. "It's
writrcu on your face"'
She looked down at that, and fell
to weeping bitterly.
"My own love was breaking bis

I have loved for forty years. I did i I
to save him. Could I let a girl's
fancy stand in my way and see him a
beggar iu his old age?"
I fell at her feet like a stone, and
knew nothing fur an hour or more.
When I came to 1 was alone with
Jennie. 1 bade her set my hood ami

asked the prim old housekeeper to
let me see the squire.
She stared at me for my b-jldness

moment he stood before me in eve

eyes bright, and led me into a little
room and seated me.

me by an offer of his hand, I angered
my grandmother by owning to the

message that had been sent my
promised husband as if from me.
"And though I may never see Evan
Locke again," I said, "I can never
be another man's true love, for I am
his until I die."
As 1 thus spoke the rich celor died
out of my listener's face the hand
some young squire was in tears. t
At last he rose and came to ma '

said. "Ah, me! The news is bad

And then, kind and gentle, as
though I had not grieved him, he
gave me his arm and saw mc across

"Be at rest, Agatha. The Golden
George has not sailed yet"
I liked him better than I had ever
done before that night when I told
grannie I would never wed him.
Oh, but he was fit to be a king
the grandest, kindest best of men,
who rode away at dawn on the mor
row and never stopped till he reached
Liverpool and found Evan Locke Just
ready to set foot upon the Golden
George and told him a tale that made
his heart light and sent him flying
back to me. Heaven bless him!
And who was it that sent grand
father the deed of gift that made the
cottage his own, and who spoke a kind
word to the gentry for young Doctor
Locke that helped him into practice?
Still no one but the Squire, for whom
we taught our children to pray every
night For we were married, and
when our eldest child was two, the
thing I needed to make me quite
happy happened, and from over the
sea, where be bad been for three years,

Perhaps the most cold-blooded com

General, Saint-Cyr. He was a great
tactician, but totally neglected the
morale of his men. He was never
seen on horseback, and never showed
himself before the lines. On one oc

shall faithfully carry out your orders,
but it would not be becoming for me
to advise you."
Later on Saint-Cyr succeeded to the
command of the army, and then
adopted a peculiar method of general
ship. He formed his plan of battle
clearly, precisely and with admirable
foresight Then he sent his orders to
his subordinates, and shut himself
up in his quarters; absolutely forbid

he took out his violin and went to

bowling alley, be stood idly losing

looking woman, who had just made
her appearance, approached him with
a challenge to roll a game.
"It's the only exercise I take, she
explained, "and you surely will oblige

He couldn't refuse, of course, but
informed her of his being a score of
years out of practice Hut this did

not far behind. The strikes and

and a whisjier went around that thev

ing a free exhibition.
The lady rolled up a total of six
consecutive strike?, and this made
Mr. Robb a little anxious.
"You will excuse me taking off my
coat," he said. "Why, certainly,"
she sweetly replied, and of? came the
Strike followed strike until ciifht

"Why, that's so-and-so and his

The Germans have some educa
tional ideas which we In this coun
try have borrowed with profit, and
there are stlii others which we might
be wise to adopt. Among them, no
doubt arc the wall maps of different
species of jx'sliferous weeds, which
hang in schoolrooms where the chil
dren can see them as long as they go
A practical Idea underlies the dis
playing of these maps. It Is well
known that farmers arc prone to
treat all weeds alike and hardly to
observe any difference between them;
whereas the natures of weeds differ
as much as the natures of any other
plants do, and the s rt of treatment
which will exterminate one will
sometimes Increase and multiply an
other. It is important, therefore, that the
farmer and gardener should under
stand the weeds which they are try
ing to exterminate.
It is here that these German wall
maps come in. They show colored
plcturesof the most pestiferous weeds,
in all stages of growth, and also the
ways in w hich they scatter their seeds
and propagate themselves liy learn
ing them thoroughly, through seeing
them day by day on the walls, i be
child grows up with a knowledge of
the best way to exterminate them.
it has been proposed that our agri
cultural societies offer prizes for the
best labelled collections of weeds
not for the purpose of encouraging
their cultivation, but In order to ex
tend a knowledge of them, aud thus
contribute to their extermination.
