iaf ter a moment's pause, and almost in a
whisper. Thia did not seem to her at all
what she had meant to say, but she ut
"tered the first words that came.
"Well," said the colonel, with a smile,
"have your own way about Mom Bee,
Winifred; make what bargain you like
to induce her to stay. Provided you are
pleased, I shall be satisfied."'
Winifred uttered a faint ejaculation
and clasped her hands. "She has been
to see mo about Brer Nicholas."
The colonel started; his color came and
"went in violent alternations, and he sank
helplessly into the nearest chair. "What
does this mean?' he asked.
"And does he make a go-between of
one of my old slaves?" thundered the colo
nel, springing to his feet. "A meddle
"No. father: it was Mom Bee who went
to him of her own accord, for my sake."
Tho colonel sat down again, and Wini
fred went on to tell tho captain's story.
Her father heard her without interrup
tion; what he felt she could not divine,
for, the first shock over, his countenance
gave no indication of his thoughts.
"It muat be true!" she osclaimed, pas
sionately, when sho had ended. "What
will you do about it?"
Col. Thorno did not immediately reply.
He could be as impulsive as Winifred
herself, but ho could not bo confiding.
"We have no assurance that Nicholas
still lives," he said, at last.
Winifred clasped her hands. "Let us
hope!" sho whispered.
"I am very tired, just now," the col
jonel sighed. "I will lie down until din
ner is ready."

not actuated by anxiety on her father's

jMiss Elvira very uncomfortable. Sho was
a creature of habit, and sho had formed
tho habit, in the past eight years, of liv

tically forgotten him. Every hope that
centered in him had died the day sho
heard of his marriage with Dosia Fumi
Tal, -and sho could not see now that his
return, granting that he lived, was to bo
desired. Indeed, Miss Elvira preferred
to believe him dead, since never, never
again could he bo the Nicholas of old.
She had long persuaded herself that tho
"Colonel would do his whole duty if ho
made some provision for Nicholas in his
Avill; the prospect of having Dosia and

"Winifred Thorno! Do you not know
that if your 4 ather were to bring .that
man here your Aunt Pauline and your
Cousva Flora never would cross this
threshold again? It is you -who are cruel!
"Think of Aleck, killed at Chickamausa!"
Ths tears sprang to Winifred's eyes.
"It is life that is cruel," she said, sadly.
"Eutou need not be uneasy. It is three
days tsnee Mom Bee came to us with the
news about Brer Nicholas, and I asked
my favlier yesterday if he did not intend
to see Capt. Fieccker, but ltt? said I was
never to ask him that again. And I am
bat a girl. What can I do but assault
heaven with my prayers?'
Col. Thome had not seen fit to acquaint
h s daughter tritii the fact that Capt,
1 ietcber had written to decline the invi
tation to visit Thome Hill, conveyed in
tuat note the colonel had left with Mrs.
Scott a few days before.
A week later Giry-Ann took up her
permanent abode at Thorne Hill. She
announced her willingness to accept the

she was not backward in demanding the

hfnt that a "few chickens, by tfre"way"of
a start, would be acceptable.
It would be hard to say just what it
was that induced Mom Bee to return.
She had been heard to tell Chaney, who
was temporarily presiding over the
Thorne Hill kitchen, that "sence mawster
could tek caro of olo Dicey, he mought
jes' ez well tek care o' Glory-Ann;" and,
also, she had been heard to declare that
she "wouldn' give a handful o' cow pease
fur dese young niggers o' freedom what
had plum' los' track o' dey manners;"
but if her solemn assertion was to be be
lieved, her return was prompted solely
by affection for "little Missy." She in
formed Mrs. Herry, when she carried
back the Bide saddle, that she felt in duty
bound to look after "dat chile." The
colonel, she explained, being only a man,
couldn't be expected to know how to look
after a girl; "en ez fur Missle-virey
well, Miss Myrtilla, you know Missle

ever Glory-Ann might mean by that.
Thu3 settled again at Thorne Hill, this
faithful nurse kept a sharp eye upon
"little Missy," admonishing that young
lady as she saw fit, and criticising her
visitors freely, for Missy was "sweet and
twenty" now, and had admirers not a
few. But the right man was slow to put
in an appearance, or Glory -Ann was hard
to please. This ono was stingy, that one
was wasteful, another had no manners
Glory-Ann was exacting as to "manners"
and yet another had no money, an in
superable objection, in Glory-Ann's opin
ion. "I shall never marry," Winifred would
say, gravely. "I am not like other girls."
"No, dat you ain't, my honey."

AX UNEXPECTED GUEST.
"All rigid, sir,'' said the colonel. "What
is your name',''1
As Col. Thorne was riding homeward,
one day, at noon, he was startled by tho
sight of a powerful black horbe, saddled
and bridled, but riderless, galloping furi
ously in tho dircc-cion of Tallahassee; a
little farther on, a3 he turned the corner
of the brier patch whero old Gilbert used
to gather sassafras roots, his own horse
shied violently, and the colonel waa
hardly surprised to find a man lying on
tho edge of tho road, motionless, with
his head against the obtruded roots of an
overhanging oak. His face was hidden
by his position, but his hat had fallen
off, revealing a well shaped head, and
fair, closely cut hair.
Tho colonel dismounted, and lifting
the unconscious head, discovered the
face of a stranger, a well dressed, well
made man, of two or three and thirty,
perhaps, and unmistakably a gentleman.
Ho revived, -in a measure, as his head
was moved to a more comfortable posi
tion, and muttered, indistinctly, "Lost
"All right, sir," said the colonel.
"What is your name?"'
There was an effort to answer, but 'ho.
voice died away in an inarticulated mur
mur. Col. Thorne, having made a pillow of
his overcoat for the stranger's head, re
mounted his horse and galloped back to
tho Hold, where some negroes were at
work, to order the construction of a lit
ter of pine boughs, upon which the in
jured man was borne to Thorne Hill.
A messenger was dispatched to town
to summon a doctor, and to leavo at the
hotel a statement in writing that an un
known man had been found uncon
scious, on the road near Thorne Hill, and
carried to Col. Thorna's house.
Nothing was found on tho stranger's
person to give any clue to his identity,
but had lie come heralded by unimpeach
able introductions he could not have
been made moie welcome. Miss Elvira
bestirred herself with eager alacrity to
have a room put in readiness; the colonel
gave his personal attention to his uncon
scious guest, using such skill as ho pos
sessed for his recovery; while Missy,
watching at one of tho front windows
for the doctor, who she thought would
never come, r.ighed to think that there
was so little she could do.
As thus she sat alone in the fast gath
ering gloom of the wintry evening, her
thoughts wandered away to her long ab
sent brother, who himself had been a
sufferer among strangers. Alas! wliere
was ho now? When should sho see him
"Missy, is dat you?' It was Glory
Ann's voico that penetrated the shadows,
and presently Glory-Ann's withered hand
was laid ou Missy's arm. "De doctor

up in alarm.

"Hit's de Fed'ral gemman," Mom Bee
announced, in the voice of fate.
"Oh, Mom Bee!" broke from Wini
fred's white lips, a cry of mingled dis
may, reproach and disappointment; for
one wild moment the baseless hope that
the stranger might prove to bo Nicholas
had completely mastered her: it left her
faint and ill. She sank back in her chair,
clasping her head in lier liands.

"Don't let him die," said Winifred,
rallying Avith a sudden sense qf satisfac
tion that it had fallen to her father's lot
to cancel the obligation to Capt. Fletcher
on Nicholas' behalf.
"Don't you be no ways oneasy," said
Glory-Ann. "Doctors got away o' shakin'

Dr. Lane now came in, rubbing his
hands, and Glory-Ann precipitately re
tired, to give her attention to tho supper
table, seeing that Miss Elvira wa3 inca
pacitated. "Well," said the doctor, brusquely,
"here's a queer state of things! Suppose
you've no idea who your guest is? No
body less than that Yankee, Fletcher,
whom your father declined to leceive.
Odd, isn't it. that the colonel had never
even seen him? Good joke, eh, Miss
But Winifred did not even smile. "Is
he badly hurt?' she asked, gravely.
"Pretty serious case;" and Dr. Lane
went into details that Winifred could not
understand. "So, you see, you may have
him on your hand3 for somo time to
come," he continued, in conclusion. "But
we'll save him, if wo can, eh, Miss Wini
fred, though he 13 a Yankee?"
Winifred made no reply; but the col
onel, who had come in a moment before,
said, a little stiffly:
"It is an unfortunate occurrence,
much to be regretted. We must hope
that the accident may have no untoward
"Look out, Miss Winifred!" cried Dr.
Winifred was very angry. "There 13
no occasion to say that to me!" she re
torted. "Well, I hope you won't find him an
insurmountably objectionable guest,"
said Dr. Lane, good humoredly. "He is
md of your aunt's, I understand,
"Yes," the colonel answered, still with
stiffness; "but under the circumstances

This was a sentiment in which Miss
Elvira fully concurred, though she was
dismayed beyond measure when she
learned who was the guest an untoward
accident had sent to Thorne Hill. "It i3
really a great embarrassment," she la
mented to Winifred. "Of course, your
Aunt Pauline and Flora can't come to see
"It isn't a matter of choice to have
Capt. Fletcher here," said Winifred, with
an impatient sigh.
"That is true," Miss Elvira agreed, in
a tone of relief. "We had, indeed, no
choice; it was altogether providential."
This view of tho situation she repeat
ed to Mrs. Theodore Scott, who called
tho next day. It had been Mrs. Theo
dore Scott's deliberate choice to have
Capt. Fletcher at her house, Miss Elvira
reflected, with a comfortable sease of

color, hastened to assure Miss Elvira
that sho likewise had had no choice; she

"Yes, she was my friend!" Mrs. Scott
repeated, with some asperity, feeling
that she had not received the hearty in

thing at school, and Adelaide Hardy,

"She is dead now, but I don't forget all
she did for me."
"No," said Winifred, "you could not
fcrget that." She rose and moved rest
lessly about the room, and at last came
and stood beside Mrs. Scott's chair; she
felt a strong, incomprehensible impulse
to stoop and kiss that lady, but she re

Scott exclaimed, w ith a bitter sigh. "As

one in the stylo of long ago, in a large

Work one band on one side of the blanket,
and the other on the other side, so when

both bands of cross stitch will be on the
Buttonhole the hem of your valance with

of the thread to form tassels. Afi-v two or
three shades of the thread in making these.
Then, if you have fallen heir to a piece of
old brocade, cut from it any of the figures

In default of the brocade, procure a piece
