"Tho most dellKlitful thins about our
(.liKUKotncnt is that ovurybody Is so
IiIoummI with it." Amy Townseiul said
this. mnilliis down at lir lover, who,
full length on the Kvass bcsldo her.
leaned on ills elbow, watching her sort
liaif hlowint; across her forolirnd, and
the color of the sun lllckorliiR through
Hie shadowp, hot on her check; for she
had iloM'Ml her Unify white parasol and
taliyn olf her hat, here undi'i' an oak
tri'c on tho urassy bank of tho river.
"1 should have thoiiKht that the fact
that we were pleased ourselves was a
tnilo more Important'.'" he sutCKested.
Hut Miss Townseiul paid no attention
to his Interruption.
Von know, (rcnernlly, when people
pit fiiKaffed, there are always people
who exclaim: either the man is too
good for the Kill (and you lire too uood
for me, Billy! or the (,'lrl is too good
for the man"
"She is; llieie Is no irucstlon about
tliot," tlie man intorruptud.
"He ijuli't!" the other eommandod;
'but in our ease, everybody approves.
Y"ii nee, in the llrst place, you aie a
Parson, and I'm a Worker. That's what
they call me, the old ladies; 'a Work
er.' And, of course, that'.i a most ap
propriate combination to start with."
"Well, the old Indies will discover
that my wife tan I Koiiif," to run their
( .'ounllteos for them." the parson said,
I'lipbatically; "besides if I'm a Par
si.n. you're a I'arson! How do the old
ladies bear It, that 1 haven't any an
cestirs, and used to inn errands in a
tin shop? I'm a worker, literally
"You are a kooso," she told him,
calmly; "don't keep Interrupting me,
Hilly. What do ancestors amount to'.'
1 admit I'm glad that none of mine
Mine, handed (so far as I know) or that
they didn't run off -with other people's
money or wives. (I'd mind the wives
less than the money, I must confess.
1 suppose y.on think that's very medl
eal in me'') Hut what credit is their
guod behavior to me.' You are a
credit to your people, whoever they
v, civ and my own belief is, they were
.She had such a charming way of
Hinging up her head, and looking down
at him sidewlse, that he was willing to
have had any kind of ancestors, only
to tatcb that look of joyous pride; and
In bis own joyousness he was Impelled
to try to take her lund in his; but her
fingers were lneed about her knee, and
she shook her head.
"No! I'm talking seriously; , you
mustn't lie silly. Y'ou must listen to
the other reasons why we are approved
ol: Klrst, you arc a Parson, and Tin a
Worker. Secondly, you are lorty-two,
and it's high time, high time sir! for
ou to be married; and I'm twenty-
ven and, l tally, you know, 'my
chances are lessening' (that's what
they say, my dear); and I 'hardly de
ceive, after all these years' "
"Ami oliers?" suggested her lover
"Alter all these years, Hilly, not to
get a crooked stick In the end."
"I'm not crooked, I will admit," lie
"Thirdly." she proceeded, "you are
wry good-looking, and all the old Tab
bies i,ay that a handsome minister
ought to be married."
'The old tabblos might find some
thing bettor to talk about," he said,
bis face hardening. "Oh, Amy, that's
tin- kind of tiling that makes a man
cringr!-I mean a minister. Here is
this great, serious, strenuous matter
of living the consciousness of Clod;
that's what llvinc Is In Its highest ex
pression! and to further that con
sciousness Is the dlvinest human pas
slun. A man tries to do it, gives his
life to It, and Immediately he Is food

lor chattering old women! They gos
sip about his affairs, or his clothes, or
bis looks even!" William West sat
up, his face stirred with anger and
pity. "Hut I suppose I must admit
that the Parsons In lug it on them
selves to some extent," ho ended, with
a sigh; "we don't mingle enough with
men; they distrust us, and think we
tall; twaddle about overcoming temp
tutlons we know nothing about; so, be
ing shut out from masculine living, we
do haunt ten tables, and gabble about
vestments. 1 suppose there's no doubt
He had a certain stern way of
thrusting out his lower Up when he
vas very much In earnest, and draw
ing hta strong brows together; an Im
patient file sprang into his beautiful
dark eyes. He turned and looked at
lier, claiming her understanding.
"Yes," she said; "yes; It Is so. The
belittling of the profession of the min
istry. Is a dreadful thing. A shameful
tiling. I once heuid n man say that
elderly unmarried women always had
to have somethlnr to fuss over and
coddle, something to lead around by
a blue ribbon. Sometimes It wns a
poodle; sometimes it was a clergyman.'
And there's truth in It, Hilly."
"There Is," he said, grimly.
"Well, dear," she reassured him, smil
ing, "your distinguished rudeness to
tho ladles of your congregation has, at
least, protected you from the blue rib
bon," He began to protest, but the talk
slipped back Into their own affairs, and
somehow he succeded In getting her

linnd, and by and by they wore silent,
just for happiness, and because it was
sunset, and the river was Metering
with light, and there was a faint stir
of leaves overhead. They were to be
married in a fortnight, and they wore
going to have all their lives together
to sny how good life was, so there was
no need to talk now.
As the girl has said, It really was a
very unsatisfactory match. William
West was a mnn whom everyone hon
ored, and many loved. For fifteen years
he hnd been settled in Mercer; llrst as
nn assistant to old Mr. Hrown, anil then
as rector of tho church. Hut he hail
taken his place in the community as a
man of strong Judgment and high
character; perhaps as a citizen, rather
than us a minister. Men felt that he
was a man, before he was a clergy
man; not knowing that his calling had
given him his highest manhood. He
was singularly devoid of clerical affec
tation; consequently the Influence of
Ills own reverence, was not vitiated
by a suspicion of ills common sense.
In fact,' his sanity in matters religious
Joined to his knowledge of liuninn na
ture, made him a man of importance In
affairs municipal and social. That he
had lived to be forty-two, and had not
married, was from no asceticism; he
was a very human person, and fully
intended to have a wife; only, she must,
be Just what he wanted. And so far,
that "not impossible She" who was to
possess hta heart, had never appeared.
When she did, he recognized her Im
mediately, and would have proposed
to her the next day,' had not a feel
ing of diffidence as to her sentiments
deterred him for nearly two weeks. At
the end of that time, ho told her all,
well, never mind what ho told her! She,
at least, will never forget the passion
of that claiming.
Amy Townsend had to come to spend
the winter in Mercer, with a cousin.
Of course, the first Sunday, she went
to St. James, as everybody who was
anybody, did. When she came home,
her eyes were keen with Interest.
"Do tell me about him, Cousin Kate,"
she said; "I never heard that sort of
preaching; what does It mean? Is he a
real person, or Is lie just clever?" Mrs.
"Walt till you meet him! you'll see."
Hut she also adde to herself, "wait
till he meets you!" For Mrs. Paul was
one of those courageous women who
lush In where angels fear to tread; she
was a match maker.
"Is he married?" the girl asked,
naturally enough, but blushed furiously
the next Instant, which made her
"No; but it's not for lack of oppor
tunity," said Mrs. Paul, dryly. "I de
clare, Amy, women are dreadful fools,
sometimes! 1 should think a clergyman
wouldn't marry, out of sheer disgust
for their silliness."
"Oh, he's run after, Is he?" Miss
Townsend said, coldly,
"Well, I must admit he's very at
tractive,' Mrs. Paul besan, remember
ing her scheme, and retreating a lit
tlefor nothing will put a girl against
a man sooner than to know he is "run
Then she told his story; the boy had
been a waif ("his mother was respect
able, I think, said Mrs. Paul, "but no
body knows anything about the fa
ther.") He had had that dreariest sort
of childhood, which knows no other
home than an Institution. Then, some
how, "quite like a story book," airs.
Paul said, a gentleman took an Interest
in him, and began to help him In one
way or another.
"It was that zoological man, Prof.
Wilson; you know who I mean?"
E TOLD HIM, CALMLY.
Mrs. Paul explained. "He looked
after him. At llrst he put him
In a tin shop, if you please; fancy! this
man with the grnnd manner!'"
"Oh, I supposed he was u gentleman,"
Amy Townsend said.
"Amy, you are a snob!" her cousin
answered, hotly. "He Is!" Mrs. Paul
was so annoyed that she ended the
story of Mr. West's career very briefly.
"Prof. Wilson oered either to start him
In business or put him through col
lege; he chose to go to college."
"That was lather tine," Miss Town
"Fine? It just showed what sort of
a man he was!" cried Mrs. Paul; "he

and he did o lot of tutoring. Prof. AVI1
son left him a good deal of money, but
he gave away nearly half of It at
once, John says. Quite remarkable for
a young man. Well, that's all; you see
what he Is today? a gentleman nnd a
scholar! John says there Is no man In
Mercer who has the Influence thut he
Miss Townsend, in suite of her care
ful Indifference, wns Interested. And
later, when Hew William West met her
he, too, was "Interested;" and nil felt
out os the most experienced romancer
Amy hud a little money, much clinrm,
a certain distinction thut 'answered for
beauty, and a very true nature; there
wus, perhaps, a certain hard Integrity
about her, but her Impulses were gra
cious. Also, as the old ladles said, she
"IV" ' h
was a "worker." She found life too In
teresting not to meddle with It.
So It lia? come to pass that these
two, who, as Mrs. Paul said, "weru
made for each other," were going to
bo married. '
"JtiRt think, In two weeks!" ho
said, as they sat hero under the oak,
the grass blossoming knee deep about
them, and the air sweet with clover;
"Amy, It does not seem as if I had
been allvo until now!"
"I wonder docs it go on getting
nicer?" she asked htm, a little shyly.
Amy Townsend wus very much in love,
but this man's strength always gave
her a slight sense of timidity. ' How
ever, a girl adores this uncomfortable
feeling, which men rarely comprehend.
"Everything seems to be better, and
more worth while," she told him.
"I understand," he said.
And they were silent for awhile, bo
cause understanding is enough, when
people are In love. Then the girl's
gnyety began to sparkle out:
"Hilly, Cousin Kate says If I'm not
careful, I'll get to be a managing Pnr-
snnes-'s: she says 1 must devote myself
to you; not to your poor people."
"Mrs. Paul lias given a great deal of
good advice In her day," the Hev Hilly
remarked, meditatively, "and I really
think very little hurm has come from
"She advised your being called to
Mercer. Did you know that?"
"Know It? My dear child! how often
have I dined at the Paul's? Just so
often have I heard It."
"Now, Hilly, that's not very nice In
"I but stated a fact; and I have n
high regard for Mrs. Paul. Only, when
I think how many girls she has tried
to make marry mo! but tlley would
none of them look at me."
"And In two weeks the opportunity'
will be gone," she jeered.
"Poor girls!" ltev. Hilly commiser
ated; and was removed for vanity.
Indeed, just because happiness Is so
serious a thlntr, they became very
frivolous, these two, slttlnc watching
the sunset, and the river. Amy told
him a funny story about the parish;
he responded by another concerning
Tom Kellly, a policeman; which re
minded Amy to tell him that poor Tom
had an accident, and hurt his hand.
"Hut It wns very stupid In him," she
added, with a little of that resentful
goodness that one sees sometimes in
women; "I'm not at all sorry for him,
because he deserved it. He had been
drinking, and as he went stumbling
out of a car, he crushed his hand In
Her lover was not to be lured into
professional comments; he only mur
mured, "Mauvals quart d'heure "
which made her say, indignantly:
"Now, Hilly, really, that is too
much!" and insist that they should go
home Immediately. "I cannot descend
to such levels," she told him; and was
very stern and forbidding, when, look
ing to the right and left, and seeing no
man, he begged to be allowed to kiss
Hut this wns all froth. Heneath, In
the man's life, were the great tides of
love, moving, noiseless and unchangea
ble from out the depths of his soul. In
the girl's life it was all shine, and per
fume and glitter, like flowers blossom
ing on a rock; beneath, in her heart,
was the solid ground of reverence and

Tour, to Florida.
No district In America presents, dur
