Ah Belinda Trips the Stair.
In her cool, dim-lighted parlor, --
Many thoughts come to mc there;
"While I wait to hear the music.
As Belinda trips the stair.
I have come with bold Intention,
Her displeasure I will dare;
But my coward heart beats faster
As Belinda' trips the stair.
I can hear her gentle footfall.
Hear the swish of raiment there.
Coming to me nearer, nearer.
As Belinda trips the stair.
From her step I try to reason:
Does she not, or does she care;
All I know Is, joy is coming,
Aa Belinda trips the stair.

Then he rowed home, anil spent the next
two days after bis wont, the only observa

Master Simon ordered the tap boy to carry

the cook. "I hope you're not beginning to
forget how to take care of ourse!f."
"Well, I tope so, too," Master Simon
answered, but did not budge.
On the morning of the third day, how
ever, he saw that which made him step
Indoors and mount to the attic under the
cote. Having opened with much caution
a trapdoor in (he roof, he slipped an arm
out and captured a carrier pigeon.
The bird carried a note rolded small and
Ixiund under Its wing with a thread or
silk. Master Simon opened the note and
"ir you love me as I love you
No knife can cut our loves In two"
He had prepared himself for a hearty
chuckle, but he broke out with a pro
fuse perspiration instead. "Oh, this is

Bit the tccnnd note was written in a
