Coi'jrluht, IttM. by Frank It. Hucot
ltyluud, younger son nntl only two
removed from u title, Htood In the
tloorwiiy of Ida dugout anil gnzed
across the prairie. Hyland's gaze
went Idly atong Ida fences uiul over
Ills few Bentterlng cuttle iitul then re
turned to the olijeet which hud Wrought
liim to the door the mull wagon.
The nix dugout and Htoro In night
nnd n few more Isolated dugotitM he
low the horizon comprised Cattlehoro,
dlgnlllcd with a triweekly mall and
liming Kyland, a.s the most literary
man of the community and the re
cipient of the bulk of the mall, It cus
todian. As the wagon drew near he saw
that It contained a second occupant
and presently that the second occu
pant was a woman. Then the wagon
drew up In front of the dugout, and
the woman descended, disclosing her
self to be scarcely more than a girl
and such u girl as Cattleboro had
never seen before, ltyliuul made u
ipilck step forward, the pleasure on
his face mingled with a good deal of
"Where can I Hud a hotel, sir? Is
the schoolhousc near? Will you bo
kind enough, to direct me to Sir. Hy

ltylaud's woudcr became sudden
"You are Miss Colllnwood," he said.
"Well, suppose you step Into the
dugout a moment. I will get the mall
and then come In nnd explain. I am
Outside, the dugout was like the
others.of tho couutry; within, the simi
larity faded. .Skins and Indian blan
kets concealed the rough walls, and
there was a profusion of books and
periodicals. Tho girl's eyes Hashed a
friendly recognition toward some of
the titles; then ltyliuul entered with a
little package of letters and papers In
his hand and with a troubled look ou
"I'm sorry you didn't wait for mo
to write again," he said. "The fact Is
we haven't any schoolhousc yet. The
boys arc busy rounding up nnd brand
ing their cattle Just now, and so It's
been put off. And er there Isn't a
hotel or boarding house In the whole
country. The only thing I see lii for
you to go to tho Itlkshons' dugout, only
a quarter of a mile from here. I think
they will be able to squeeze a room
for you, and they're good people,
though Mrs. Klkshon cauuot speak a
word of English. My Idea was for
you to hoard with Stanley, hut his wife
Is east Just now, and they won't move
Into their dugout under a mouth. Why
didn't you wait until I had something
dellnlto to wrlto'r" pathetically.
The girl laughed.
"I suppose It was because I liked
your letter describing Uie country," she
replied. "I wanted to take a vacation,
and It occurred to mo this would be
Just the place. I could see the people
and get some Idea of what school du
ties are. You sec, this Is to be my first
attempt at teaching. As to the Itlk
shons, I think we will get along very
Ilyland's face showed his relief.
"Then It will he all right," ho de
clared. "I'll corral call the men to
gether, and we'll put up u log school
house for you Just as Boon as their
rush work Is over. We've already se
lected a fine clump of trees to build
under. And In the meantime, If you
Wish, we can arrange for you to teach
the children out of doors under tho
trees. Thero will be no rains at tills
"That will bo delightful," she cried
eagerly, "only," her face falling a lit
tle, "I haven't secured the position
"I give It to you now."
He looked embarrassed, then laugh
ed. "Why, yes, I think I'd better. I don't
believe I would know how to conduct
an examination. You sec, it's like this.
The men out hero are very busy peo
ple, and as I'm the only shiftless one
they have a habit of loading all the of
fices upon my shoulders. On second
thought," tho relief on his face becom
ing complete, "I urn glad you havo ar
rived so early. These things natural
ly fall Into Hue with a teacher's du
ties. Ton will design tho schoolhousc
of logs, you know select tho books nnd
make out a list of tho apparatus neces
sary." "lJut hold on," begau Miss Collln
wood, the merriment In her face chang
ing to sudden dismay.
"No, no," hurriedly, "It Is absolutely
necessary. It Is tho--the examination,
you know er to tako the place of It,
I mean. I havo felt worried ubout tho
school books, for I novor went to an
American school, you know. I couldn't
refuse, of course, for thoy are (ill spleu
' did, hardworking peoplo here, aud It
would help tbem. I think wo will
make a great success of It now."
"I hopo bo," faintly.
Ho looked at her keenly.
I "Of course I hIiiiII hnln vnn nil T
can," he reassured her. "Tho flrst few
days I expect I had better even help
with the teaching. Homo of tho young
people enn spenk broken Kngllsh, and
Homo cannot speak Kngllsh at all, aud
most of them are only Jjalf civilized.

Hi laud wnx there with mi Inexhausti
ble store of hunting and niilmal utorlcs
to bribe the scholars' attention aud
with a vicious horse fastened to one of
the trees, which was to lie common
property out of school hours.
For the tlrst few days Ityland was
thoroughly Interested hi the novel
work aud was thero when school open
Hi aud remained until It closed, and by
the time the novelty began to pall he
had become even more thoroughly in
terested In the teacher.
Among his letters from lhiglaud two
mouths or so later was one from the
family solicitors, the opening para
graph of which read: "It Is our painful
duty to Inform you of a sad accident
which befell your Cousin Itobert and
the baronet while testing a new auto
mobile. Itobert was instantly killed
and the baronet somewhat Injured. He
Is already better, thanks to his robust
constitution. This makes you the heir,
and the baronet directs that you dis
pose of any Interests you may have In
America nnd return home Immediate
ly. Itobert's allowance of 1,000 a year
will be yours If you reside In England.
We may add that the Lady Ullen Is
staying at the Hall."
Hylaud read the letter thoughtfully,
but, on the whole, with clearing face.
Only that morning he hnd received an
Intimation that a mortgage would bo
foreclosed on his much unless the In
terest be paid Immediately. That would
leave him practically penniless. Ilia
natural bent was for quiet and his
books. He doubted if he could make
a living In America or anywhere, for
that matter. The only thing wns to
return und accept tho 3,000 and Inci
dentally Lady Ellen.
Once decided, he thrust the rest of
the letters into Ills pocket and started
out to say goodby to his friends.
When something disagreeable was in
prospect, tho less procrastination tho
It wns this that took him straight
to the schoolhousc. Miss Colllnwood
was more to him than all else In Amer
ica; how much more he had not re
alized until he decided to leave.
Siio was Just closing tho door when
he arrived, and something In her eyes
as she greeted him changed his in
tended brief farewell Into: "Suppose
we stop under the trees n little while,
Miss Colllnwood. It Is so pleasant
here now, nnd, besides, I have some
thing I wnnt to tell you."
"Under the trees" hnd been their fa
vorlto talking place, nnd he found it
even more dilllcult to speak the words
of farewell thero tlinn he had at tho
schoolhousc door. Several times he
forced tlieni to IiIh lips, but looking
into her eyes nnd listening to her
voice ho could not give tlieni utter
mice. England and tho three thousand
pittance wero slipping farther and far
ther away, and America nnd this girl
bcrildo him were becoming nearer and
more Indispensable. Shu was telling
him of some of her ambitions nnd
hopes, nnd tho Indomitable courage
was tiring his own veins aud making
simple what had before seemed Insur
mountable. He had thought this girl
his dearest friend; he now knew thut
she was Infinitely more, nnd In this
land or anywhere It would be easy to
make n living for tho woman lie loved.
Suddenly he reuched out and took her
hands in his, strongly, and sho did not
"Miss Colllnwood Elinor," ho said
steadily, "will you marry me?"
And she, after u moment of silence,
but not hesitation, nnswered quietly,
Thoy tnlked for half an hour longer,
making nlnus and discussing hopes;
1 then he noticed the bulk of unopened
letters in ills pocket, no took them
out ono by oue nnd rend them, still
talking nnd mnklng comments on whnt
thoy contained. Tho Inst was from
the snme solicitor as the tlrst, written
two days later, but mailed In time to
reach the same boat It read: "Tho

Probably overy ono who has noticed
the green and roasted coffeo sitting to
gether In sneks In the denler's store
house hos observed tho difference in
size of tho beans. It Is n peculiarity
of coffeo that In roasting wlillo It
loses considerably In weight It gains
In bulk. At the reddish brown stngo
tho loss of weight has been about 15
per cent and the gain In bulk nbout
ilOj at tho chestnut brown, 20 and 50
per cent respectively, nnd, if carried
to n dark brown, 25 and 00. It is in
the roasting that the volatile oil to
which tho delightful aroma is duo is
developed, as it is not present In tho
green berry. If Uio roasting is carried
too far-boyond n light brown this
oil is injured and destroyed, nnd tho
disappointed housekeeper properly
complains that tho coffeo has been
roasted to death.
