When the Keverend Hosea Rambo
suddenly shut bis eyes tighter than
Chaucer's Chanticleer, and opened his
mouth 8B wide, over bis plate, the school
ma'am boarder gazed for a full minute
before she realized that ho was saying
grace. Then she dropped her eyes, the
little landlady set down a china cup in
baste, and the new order of meal-taking
was inaugurated.
The House of the Grottoes had been
too lonety. Since the day when the
invalid hid beeu hushed there, chil
dren's voices had drowned the lost
echoes. Yet three dark haired grand
daughters with the gypsy eyes of their
ne'er do well father, and the lithe feet
that had been their mother's, were not
enough to fill those hands left empty.
Hence the bair wreaths, where dark
flowers feather all the edges; the wax
chains, looped about wax vases; the lit
tle wax plates, heaped with wax berries,
and plums, and pears, and grapes; with
wax slices of cake, where the frosting
almost melts; with wax candies and
tarts and desserts.
They had gone one by one, the three
grown gypsy maids, 'lbe old spinning
wheel; the pink china; the andirons; the
real lace scarfs and fichus that had
graced the halls of the Canton home,
bad gone with them. Only in memory
the Little Lady saw her treasures now,
down a vista of colonial pillars white
and high. The acres about the House
of the Grottoes had slipped away with
each wedding day. until only a corner
lot was left in the city, grown up to the
grotto by the gate. But the playthings
of the little maids were left behind, with
the remnant of old treasures. And
what the little players had failed to do,
his Reverence from Tennessee accom
plished. He kept the old hands busy.
Not that he himself was a creature of
over accentuated energy. The smile
that spread his expansive lips, was gen
ial as the April sun on the lee side of a
hay stack. His blue eyes were placid
as a carp pond, when, fixing them upon
the circle of hiB plate, he ruminated up
on his early youth.
"My father was nearest of all his rela
tions to having a college education. He
went one winter down to Nashville.
When spring came, he walked out on
the campus, and beard the birds chirp
ing, and the wind blowing over the
trees. And he thought about the culti
vators clicking along'the rowB. So he
Bwung his books over his shoulder, and
struck out for home."
"And'never went back?"
"Never went back. No; I'm through."
Both-woraen smiled, as the Tennesse
an betook himself to his room, with an
easy gait and an easy drawl that exclud
ed any abruptness from his exit.
"He doesn't expend any surplus ener
gy in words," remarked the school
"No, but you don't know, Miss Mitch
ell, how it rests me to have some one in
the house. It's a house of shadows."
The minister opened his door. "There
isn't enough water in my pitcher, Mrs.
Hillis," he remarked amiably.
The school ma'am looked from the
big smooth ringers that held out the
pitcher, to the tiny, knotted ones that
took it, and felt her temper stir. It
squirmed untaeily, when the little wid
ow, coming back from the kitchen with
distress in her face, explained, "there
isn't any more in, and it's too slippery
for me to go out I'm so Borry," from
the depths of very old rose upholstery.
His reverence contemplated for a full
minute the unhappy pitcher. "Perhaps
1 might get Fome," he at length hazard
ed, and as no objection offered, ho made
bis way to the hjdrant on tho north
"Yes," remarked Hiss Mitchell, re
suming a broken thread of conversation,
"I think you'll not be very lonesome
now," and with a swift goodnight, she
shut the door and her mouth together.
"Lazy as October sunshine, irrespon
sible as a wood chuck. What can he
tell his flock about higher living?"
Then she remembered his last remark,
and laughed until she cried.
"I'll undertake to show him his lead
ings in one or two directions, anyway,"
she ended with a most pedagogical frown
at her brass door knob.
Two weeks later, the Reverend Hoeea
Rambo sat in his old rose upholstered
chair, with his blue eyes fixed on a lit
tle picture that hung over his wash
stand. It was of a oung girl with dark,
southern eyes that he understood
These restless, nervous men and women
of the north were an increasing perplex
ity. His landlady, who flushed and
looked ready to cry, at seeing him let a
little pink saucer fall and break; who
rose from the table a dozen times in as
many minutee, to make his tea hot,
road a cavernous bass was intoning:

All but mother ened and cried
W hen they said good bye that day .
She just talked, and seemed to be
Not the slightest bit upset -Was

curiously at him, and seemed-perpetually

he had even surprised her, one morning,
bringing in stove wood for his landlady.
And when he had stood at his side door

for he had been several times requested
to fasten the clothes line a little lower "
than the nail to which he had carefully
wired it, on the south side of the barn,
to have his road way clear. He fancied
that his landlady was a little more ner
vous than usual, since she had been
complaining of a lame back. She had
even asked him to tell her the day of
his return before driving to hiB country
appointments. As it he could ever
know what broad girthed farmer might

It was all bewildering, and he turned
gladly to the round solemn student
faces on hiB walls. Here were the eyes
that had followed with hiB through
church and Bible history, the lips that
had repeated with, him chapel songs and
evening prayers. These knew his plans
and hopes. These were not distracted
by considerations of stove wood and
clothes lines. He saw stretched beyond
their faces a shadowy background of
blue Cumberland hills. There had been
a day one of those when Morgan's
raiders came, that his father had lain
from dawn till dark underneath the
heavy floor of bis great 'barn, and felt
the settliLg dust of his grains which the
rebels were threshing out to carry away.
Now, in his deep arm chair, the son felt
something of the sire's impotence. He
rose, strode slowly from the door, and
took out bis horse.
The little dame, watching, said to her
little stove, "How shall I ever get the
clothes line down? Oh dear'. And
when will he come back?"
"Just let him go and come. Don't
think about it," had been Miss Mitch
ell's parting words, that very morning.
"I wish I could help thinking, but
I've had somebody to worry over so
long, that it's kind of second nature."
And she stirred the fire of the Rev

straightened the crotcheted tidies on
