I A LUCKY MISTAKE.
Y' "Tom," said my father to me, one
cold November afternoon, as we stood in
the fl;g-paved ba1ll of our old-fash-ioned
n farm-house, " you'd better put the little
Idhay m;;re in the dog-cart and go into
Id Worthington for that saddle. I clean
*' forgot to call for it yesterlay, and if you
want to go out w ith the hounds on
rn, 4at urday, you won't have another chance
- ,f getting it."
I was nothing loth to act utpon the
parental suggestion, although it neant a
long drive in the biting cold, and aI
.e though the return journey would have
it been done in the d;ttk or with very in
^ lifferent moonlight. We were utterly
r, isolated at the Mistletoe Farm ; for we
r. were seven miles from Worthin;ton, our
te nearest town, and ten miles in the op
': posite direction, from the nearest rail
t way station. The little bav mare that I
t was going to drive was a young one of
our own breeding, clever as a cat and
" docile as a dog. From her infancy she
was my playfellow ; would come to me
when I whistled to her, eat out of my
hand or my pocket ; and when the time
cane for backing her and breaking her,
there was nothing to be done. She had
Ie had perfvet conIidence and trust in us all,
r and especially inl me ; the eat by the fire
side could not be more gentl' or more
n, easy to control.
She was a world too good for harness,
tt I thought to myself, as I led her out of
t the stables and proceeded to put her to
" the old fashioned, sctuaro dog cart,
which tuned up lehtinid, ain dl looked like
a mail cart-harm lig the color, whIichl
was a dingy graty. T1hie little marc was
my lhnter when mIy houds were within
reach and my father would let me go;
and sihe carried ime as gamely, even after

0 as if s'he was one of the Squlire's eriacks
