by bidding them to her mariiiiKe with

from the homestead with her hnihand
to .suttlo in what was then the "fur
\VoHl , " now a flourishing town In Illinois.
I had always heard of 1dm since I could
lemember , bill had never seen him. That

more thoroughly than this s.une , loha 1

Aunt Ithnda was to perpetrate matri

thus showing her favor , so at about T
o'clock we were none of us astonished t (

time to put it on. 'Pry it on ; It's gnoil
Quick as thought 1 drew out the wed
ding bonnet , and threw it over my brown
braid * . It was a heavy affair of gray
shirred silk , without the scrap of n bow
to enlivun it , and only one dull , Miff
feather , looking for all Ihe world like
Aunt Hhoila hcr.M'lf , set straight in the
center. And as I pulled it into place
with the eager lingers of eighteen n a
naughty prank , the old thing settled dis
mally from its own weight over my light
crimps. I laughed aloud , it was so lu
dicrously ( f opposite of a festival bon
net , just as a voice struck my ear.
. "Very appropriate. Don't , pray , te-
inove it. " I turned to Bee Cousin John in
"Much obliged for your opinion , \ \ hleh

dashing aside the headgear , where , I iliil

hud broken up the marriage I had not a

To reach the village milliner , Miss
Slack , was my only hope , I know where
her little shop was , hfivintc been dispatch
"il there the day previous for some extra
lutcatring ribbou to tin up the pieces of
cake. No time to lose. Steps sound along
the entry. Even now I may be late !
"Something's burning ! " exclaimed a
voice , just as I escaped , wedding bonnet
in hand , through an opposite door and
down a dark and little-used passage.
The passage led to tliw back yard 1
knew , ami out on the Hat stone that
served as a step. I only stopped to
gather np my long , pretty nun's veiling
train. It seemed hours before 1 could
place my hand on the brass knocker
adorning .Miss Slack's little hhop. At
hint It clanged so sharply as to bring al
most immediately a frowsy little girl ,
who retreated behind a tall pewter can
dlestick , with terror in every feature.
"I want to sue Miss Slack at once , "
1 cried , pushing the child aside to hurry
into the little entry and shake off the
damp snow ,
"You can'the's gone , " said the git I ,
taring at me ami the bonnet.
"OoneV Where ? "
"To the wedding , " said the girl. "She
went early so as to see thu folks comu
in , and get a good seat. "
I sank down on the lowest stair , bon
net and all , but immediately jumped up
"See here , little gill , " 1 cried , " 1 want
a gray feather to put oa this bonnet.
Something has happened to it "
" 1 know. It's got burnt. I smell it , "
the girl said from behind her candle ,
"Well , get another one for me as
quick as yon can , and don't stand there
talking , " I cried Impatiently. "It's gray
dark gray. Hurry up you must know
wherts she keeps them. "
"She hain't got any not that shade , "
said the girl , examining the feather.
"Hers are all black aud white , beside
she's got a green one , yes , aud u vellow.
but she hain't got a gray one. "
"Take me to her box of feathers and I
will look for myself , " 1 cried , turninv ; to
the shop door. "I'll pay her to-morrow.

I laid my hand on the Knob as I spoke.
"I can't. It's locked and she's got tho.
key. She always does when she goes out

Kvery particle of blood seemed to de
sert me at this juncture , and for a mo-1
ment 1 felt as if sinking to the cellar , j
The first thing that brought me to my
senses was hearing the girl say :
"Ain't you going ? I want to lock the

A dark object stood encircled in mist.
It was a carriage. A man sprang out.

striking out for home and wrapping my

"Goodness no ! " I cried , and , reaching

The next moment I was before the
bride and groom. The buzz of conversa
tion stopped instantly. It was as still
us death throughout the room. !
"Mchitable , " said Mrs. Luke Potter , '
in harsh tones , "you thought best to take
my wedding night to play pranks with
what was given to you in trust. Now 1
take the time to say before every one
present that you shall never touch a pen
ny of mine. Yon may march out of this
house as soon ns you find it convenient.
That's all : now go. "
"Instead of going we have a word to
say , " declared Cousin John , at his tall
est , and drawing the roomful within his
glance , "and will use no hesitancy in air
ing it now. We are betrothed , Aunt
Ithodn , " lie announced , turning his hand
some head toward Mrs. Potter , "and , beg
ging your pardon , don't in the least care
for your old money. Now , then , all eoino
on with jour congratulations. "
I felt 11 warning pinch on my cold fingers - |
gers to hold in check the astonishment
in my eyes at hearing a betrothal an- |
nonuceil that had never taken place. And
then such n wealth of peace and strength
came into my heart , that I was happy i
just to bo near him. I was in a world of |
love and protection , and I forgot to sfdv- |
er with the cold , while I smiled nnd
blushed in the right 'places as the rela
tives trooped around us .with their aston
ished congratulations. Uncle Abiel came
as soon ns hu could extricate himself
from his corner.
"Well , young man , " he said , excitedly ,
"you've done well In a short time , too ,
"That's so , " said Cousin John , giving
the brown hand a hearty shake. ( Ho
told me afterward ho was aching to
wring his neck. ) "lint long enough to
know my own mind. "
The first moment I could I drew Conn-
in John out into n corner of the old hall ,

JHE after-effects of the grip arc often disastrous. It Is com.
nionly known to the medical fraternity that the numerous all"
mcnts and complications which follow the grip arc apt to be more
serious than the acute stage of the disease.
Some people have the grip very lightly. They may be con
fined to the house only a day or two , and yet a long train of dis
agreeable , disabling symptoms follow. All sorts of tonics and
stimulating remedies have been devised to meet this condition , '
None of them can compare in results with Pcruna ,
Everyone who has had the grip ought to take a short course >
