Day by day I had seen the lines of
. care deepen round iny father's month
and forehead and watched my moth
er's pale and anxious gaze rest upon
Night after night did Maude and I
lay side by side and spend the hours
when sleep, they tell us, lends us
x beauty in wondering what trouble was
hovering over ns.
' But th& knowledge came all too
sooD. My father had lent money
which he auppbsed he could call in at
any time. The time arrived, but the
money was not forthcoming. His
health was rapidly failing him, a fact
his business anxieties in no way
helped, and we soon knew he must
mortgage heavily the farm and that if
.his health continued to fail he might
soon be unable even to pay the inter
Then Maude and I began to hold
. our whispered conversations to better
purpose-to decide thai we are strong
and.young and healthy and that such
gifts were giveu to us to be made use
of. And so it ended in our sending
off a mysterious- letter to the old
* school teacher and waiting and watch
.*ug days for a % reply, which came at
.-last to tell us she had succeeded in
finding a situation as governess at a
competency which to us seemed
The lady was willing to take'anyone
?on her recommendation, aud either of
us, she felt assured, ' would fill the
role. So she left it for us to decide
-one must go and one must stay.
At last Maude said it must be she
who would go and wrote and appointed
a day for her coming. ,
The intervening time pao^c:1 rapidly
away in busy preparation, and at last
the one Suudtvy left us rose bright
" and clear. Maude looked so lovely.

He was a tal1, handsome ovan, si.
with the Leonaru.. n name whici.
our village represented its aristocracy
and wealth. .
There were gentlemen from London
v?3?ting there constantly, but their
gaze did not often wander from the
stylish, elegant Misses Leonard to
seek any other attractions.
I saw them glance round once or
twice, as if to discover' what else in
the church could possibly distract at
tention from themselves, and I fear I
felt more pride in Maude's beanty
tjian was quite consistent with the
sacred place in which we were.
My father grew rapidly worse in
stead of better, and it was hard work
so to word my letters to Maude that
she should not know of the skeleton
in our home-the shadow of coming
Her letters wore bright and cheery,
and when at la-it I told her that our
father grew no better she answered
she baa met Dr. Melrose, who was a
relative of the lady, whose children she
taught, and ask?d him to go down and
see father and that she would defray
the necessary expenses.
I almost gasped when I read the
name-Dr. Melrose. His fame had
reached even our ears. I wondered
how she could have approached him
with such a request; but I said noth;
ing to father of her desire, and one
morning, about a week.later, his card
was put into my hands.
With quick, trembling limbs I has
. tened down to' meet him and opened
the parlor door to find myself face to
face with the stranger who, weeks
before, had sat io the Leonards' pew.
My face grew red and pale as I rec
ognized him; but he came forward very
quietly and, taking my hands,said:
"Come, we will have a little taik
first, and then you shall take me to
see your father."
Then when , he left me to visit my
father I found myself awaiting his re
turn with a calm assurance that, could
mortal aid avail him, he would find it
in Dr. Melrose's healing touch.
A half-hour passed before his re
turn, and when he%entered the room I
knew I might hope.
"It is not so bad as I feared," he
so d. "Time and careful nursing will
Roon restore him. The latter I shall
intrust to you.'
Then he gave me his directions so
clearly that I could not misunderstand
them, and when he bade me good bye,
holding both my hands for a moment
in his own, and said: "You must take
care of yourself as well-and not give
me two patients instead of one," he
smiled so kindly that I felt my heart
leap as-1 thought:
"It's for Maude's sake he has done
this thing. He loves her."
So the winter passed.., Two or three
tinrts the doctor came to relieve the
monotony. We looked to him almost
as our deliverer, for father's health
and vigor were at last restored; but
when he asked him for his bill he
laughingly replied: ;
"That was a private matter with
Miss Maude. She is to settle that."
My father looked amazed; but I
could appreciate the payment he
wopld accept, and imagined their sur
prise when he should demand it a*
their hands. \
The summer was rapidly approach
ing. The time for Maude's home
coming was at hand.
I had reason to be happy, for Maude
was coming to a home over which hung

that an impulse whioh sprang from
some corner of my brain caused me to
turn hastily up the stairs and, burying
my head in my pillow, sob aloud.
"Ellie, darling! Where are you?"
questioned a sweet, girlish voice; and
I sprang up, ashamed of my momentary
weakness, to find myself clasped in my
sister's warm, loving embrace.
And, taking me by the hand, she ran
rapidly down into the room where they
Dr. Melrose instantly arose and came
forward with his old smile of welcome
and made a movement as though^he
would already give me a brother's
kiss, but remembered in time that his*
secret was not yet .disclosed.
The evening passed rapidly away in
pleasant laugh and jes*. Occasion
ally I intercepted a glance between
Maude and her guest,fnli. of meaning,
but no one else seemed to notice it.
At last he rose to bid us good night,
and as he held my haud a moment in
his own he whispered:
"You have always been the most in
defatigable in pressing my small claim
upon you. Tomorrow I will present
it to yon for payment. May I see you
for a few moments in tho morning?"
"Certainly," I answered; but my
voice trembled, and I think had he
st?yed a moment longer I should haye
bnvst into tears.

watched my sister, sleeping so peace

o? wu ups, but nothing more, I entered
the parlor next morning to greet Dr.
Melrose, who stood waitiug for me.
''I have come, as you know,to claim
my payment, Ellie. Can you not
guess it?" . ,
A momentary struggle with myself,
then I answered bravely: ,
"Yes, I know it all. You have my
consent, Dr. Melrose, although you
take our dearest possession. "
He looked bewildered, but suddenly
seemed to understand, as he said,
"Then you know, Ellie? Since the
clay I first saw you in church I have
loved you, have*cherished as my fond
est dream the hope of making you my
wife! , Darling, you are sure I have
"But Maude?" I almost gasped.
"Maude is only too happy in the
hope that I may win you. She is en
gaged to a cousin whom she met at
Mrs. Marvin's and who is soon coming
to claim her. He is a splendid fellow
and well worthy of her; but I, ah! my
darling, can accept no other payment
And, in a wild burst of passionate
joy, of marvelous unbelief, I gave it
to him, as he sealed it with the first
kiss of our betrothal.

Checking System Applied to Buhle?.
In some of the New York depart
ment stores babies can be checked
like so many umbrellas, while their
mothers pursue the elusive bargain
from counter to counter. A small boy
is detailed to stand guard over a cer*
tain number of infants. The small
boys and the infants have not been
asked for an opinion, but the mothers
are enthusiastic in then- approval. In
Brooklyn the checking system, as ap
plied to babies, has appeared in a
new form. Brooklyn being recognized
as the Cit}' of Churches, the new de
velopment is along the ecclesiastical
line. Rev. Dr. Willey of the Nos
trand Avenue M. E. church is the
originator of the fheme, and the
mothers are once nv re the gainers.
A large room has been fitted np with
hammocks and cribs, perambulators
aifd toys. Here a volunteer commit
tee of young women assembles every
Sunday morning, and here the moth
ers, who would otherwise be kept at
home, leave then- babies, while they
themselves attend the regular church
service. The plan is a novel one, but
promises and deserves to be - popular.

WOWAN AS PUBLIC PROSECUTOR
Sirs. Abbott, of Michigan, ls First to SEotd
Thia Office. . ?
By a majority of four votes, on a re
count, Merrie Hoover Abbott,the wife
of Charles F. Abbott,of West Branch,
Mich., has leaped into prominence.
Mrs. Abbott holds a very peculiar posi
tion, as she is the only woman in
Michigan ever elected to a constitu
tional office, and the first to hold the
office of County Prosecuting Attorney
in the United States.

practice last summer. Her drst case
was in the Circuit Cour!? against the
Michigan Central Bailroad Company,
and she will have opportunity to ap
pear in the Supreme Court, as she has
taken the case to that tribunal.
It was not Mrs: Abbott's personal
desire that led her into the arena of
politics. Ogemaw County is naturally
Republican by an overwhelming ma
jority. Mrs. Abbott was known to be
a free silverit2, and finally, after 'the
persistent urging of the Democratic
Union-Free-Silver County Committee,
she was induced to accept the nomi
nation for the office to which she has
been elected. Her campaign only
lasted three weeks, but she conducted
it personally, speaking in all the pub
lic places throughout the county, and
no amount'of bad weather or wretched
roads could prevent her filling engage
ments. While her platform was that
of the party which nominated her, she
added to it some planks of her own,
one of which -was conservatism on the
woman's suffrage question.
As a pnblio speaker she was bright,
witty and forceful, controlling her
audience entirely by her natural elo
quence and sympathetic voice.
When the first returns came in the
vote was a tie, but an unofficial re
count of WeBt Branoh Township gave
her a majority of four.
Mrs. Abbott makes few intimate
friends among women, as she has ne
glected the social set of West Branoh
and does not attend its functions.
Among the womenkind the faot that
she is a "lady practitioner" is looked
upon as a handicap.
