Yet sweet Katy, even in that sim

her haughty cousin, and so thought
Floyd Laurence as he stood chat

having heard that Floyd Laurence
belonged to onieof the . F.V's,"
desired to create an impression.
"Why, I wouldn't look at a prince if
he did not come of a g o od
to do so, 'Laura," laughed Katy, a
mischievous twinkle coming into
her eyes as she met Floyd's glance.
"Oh, of course I mean if they

thie conversation she turned to Ma

-"Oh, I must get some to-morrow,

"I shalbe sure to be there right

moved gracefully away.

down to smoke away his fancies.
Suddenly he sprang up, flung the
ciger in the grate, and began to
pace the room.
"By Jove! I've got an idea !"
said he. "Miss Laura is going to

Floyd Laurence in Mrs. Howard's

Miss Carlisle's estimation. Heigho! I
wonder if that pretty, blue-eyed
cousin will come with her?"
After dinner next day, Miss Car

wide doors and crossed over to the

"At least, like him as much now
as I did last night," said Katy, with
"Vrery well, indulge your low

scornfully, "I shallecertainly not cul

A few evenings later, as Laurs

Judge Glover's elegant saloon, she
saw Floyd Laurence making his way

Once upon a time an editor, aftei

it was for the purpose of following

so he walked drearily back to his
sanctum, where he found. seven
men, four of them perfect stringers
to him, occupying the chairs, poring
over the exchanges, reading the
proofs, and commenting thereon,
and making fan of his pet articles.

out of the latest papers and putting
them in his hat. But he looked
out of the window and saw an ex
patriated local trying to write up
his notes against the side of a brick
house on the other side of the street,
and he felt some gleam of comfort
from this company in his misery
and took courage.
