Frank was absent and she did not tell

to escort Da lay to the reception, as he
wanted to go Ul a meeting uf some socie

upon the widow).
Daisy was- dressed charmingly, and
never looked like a dove than n >w when

to the widow. Her gl"s.-y hair contain

Daisy said this iu her sweet, chl lidl

Frank found a panacea for hit

Frank eujoyed the little trip they
concluded to take WeBt, much more
than he did his honeymoon. People
wondered a little but ceased when they
could find out nothing as Frank settled
down after their return and made a
model husband while Daisy, fragile and
delicate as ever, more gentle and ?flec
tionatc, governed him completely where
ho was to have been absolute monarch.
He looked bo happy aud satisfied in be

half the malicious pleasure his friend
expected to feel wheu he paid bin a
sccmid visit, last autumn, and witnessed
Franks meekly pushing a perambulator
along the garden walk which contained
his youngest baby, ths ownership of the

most brilliant conquest in his flirting
days was as nothing in comparison.

At last 1 came out and p i* "ii i shir:

went back in the shade to hav a smoke.
Dan Btaycd behind for a moment, and
then came up and joined me.
The day was delightful, and I had
forgotten all ab .ut the b >at, when I was
ron.-ed by a wild shout from D.in, and
jutnpiug up, with my drapery floating
out gracefully in the summer breeze, I
followed the direction of his pointing
finger, and saw our boat, two or three
hundred yards from the shore, floating

?Hold on!' 1 oried. 'I'll swim out
and get it.'
'I wonldu'f. do that, Dach,' said Dan.
There is a boat coming up, and, unless

'"faint my fault it the boat floats
away, is it V leared Dau, lull ufiudigna

bay, and sing out yourself j you'd loo*
well doing it.'
The boat was now rapidly approach
ing the island, and Dan intimated thai
I had better climb a tree, because the
boat contained a couple of lady friends
I s iw the danger, and went up a tree
like a squirrel, perching myself utQoeg
the branches, und Dau Went down and
yoiled to them to bring the boat. One
of the beys got hold of the painter, an I
towed her back to the beach, looking
suspiciously at the clothing -?hieb lay
upon the thwarts.
My horror knew no hounds when I
recognized in one of the ladies Julia
Dean, my pie.-cnt inamorata, aud a cold
perspiration started from every pore as
1 realized my situation.
Dan welcomed thom gleefully, atjd, to
my horror and dismay, after the ladies
hud stopped out of the bout, .he boys
lifted out a large hamper, drew the
boats high and dry on tho beach, nnd
aud showed every iutcntiou of camping
Did I fell mean? 'No, gentleineo. I
reckon not?I s'pose not??I ouloulatc
not.' For a chew of tobaooo l wodld

life forever, when this became known.
Uufortuualely fur me, the award un
der my tree was green and smooth, aud
the girls picked it out at once for their
picnic, and the hamper was unpacked,
and the merry party, inviting that
villainous Pun to partake, sat down un
der my pereh, and began to enjoy them
Of course, it was pleasant fur me to
hear them laughing, and to see the cold
ham, chickens, jellies and 'sich' dis
appearing like magic ! And then Dan
could not let mo atone. He persisted
iu recalling my name to their recollec
tion, and iu telling all sorts of insulting
stories about me, enough to drive a raau
crazy. And there I was, utterly unahl6
to hit back, breathing out thrcatcoings
and slaughter, below my breath, for I
? hired not cqr?e aloud.
How fervently 1 prayed that some
evil might fall upon him ! How I
agonized with the hope that he would
get a chicken bone in his throat, or have
a spasm of some kind 5 And at last,
when a bottle of champagne was opened,

from life girls, t'.ld mo that I was re-,
