dcerstood this trait of her father,
and letting the argllment drop, re
lapsed into silence.
While old Mr. Lippe entertained
suclh notions of letters, and by the
way was always taking pains to
iniformt everybody conWcrnin]g it, he
had deviated solllewllat with respect
to his only child Susan, who had
improved the advantages besto wed
by all excellent school, situatt: in a
samall village adjoining her father's 4
fa;nn. Her mind, too, being i-.tur
illy of a studious cast, she had

In the meantime Henry Cover

However, things werb destined to
shape themselves entirely different
to what a mere observer might
reasonably expect.
This grew out of Coverdale's love
for Susan which now assuned, the
east of impatience.
One day a young man in home
spun garb presented himself at, the
'house of Old Mr. Lippe, anitd inquir
ed if he wanted to hire a hand on
the farm.
The old farmer eyed hin for some
moments, and finding him remarka
bly well favored and knit-together,
said :
"Where are you from ?"
"I live at Monroe, wlhen at homte,"
replied the un1g maun.
"iaise 1 on a farni "
"About how much do you want a
month ?"
"Whatever you think is right."
"You'll never get along in the

"Yei shall work i month for fifteen
doliaat5s and after that, if we suit
one another, we'll bargain for a
"Agreed," said the young mian,
and was forthcomingi installed as a
hired hand.
As the reader guesses, the hand
was none other than Jlenr'y Cover
dale, who had coImueni-eei to put
into operation a plan to gain the ltd
man's consent to his mion with
Time wagge.l along. Old Lippe
was mightily pleased with his hired
hand, and often 'praised him to the'
women folks. Indeed, he looked
with a leigree of complacency on his
attention to Susan, whi-h began to
be mairked, and Coverdale was on
the poiint of popping the question,
when. a i.ruimastaice cau-ed him to
postpone it for a short season. '1'he
circunstane'e was as follows t.

was indeed and in equity his. Just

wvorthl'isss claim, and entered suit.
for possession.
This prceeding w\as so obviously
absurd a11 raseally, that. Mr. Lippe
merely laugl:ed it it, although at
the advice of his hitred land lie ap
peared at court to refute the claim ;
Supposing, however, that his bare
word would be all sufficient to dis
pose of the seunm itrel of a land
shark. His hired hand also conelud
ed to lose the day and go with him,
in ordt r, he a. i 1, to see what a Judge
andi court were like."
Old Mrs. Lippe and Susan accom
pa.ied them for the purpose of
making soime purchases, as they
could get better bar'gains in town.
The c'onver'sation of the family had
session~f of the facets in the case, and
le had manifested such an interest
in the aiflair, anud appearted to be so
anxious as to the r~csult., tat the old
man11 was not astonishedl at seeing
huim en ter' the bar and take a chair
by his side. He nioticed also, that
nis dame and Susan were among the
spectaors in the court r'oomi.
Th'le case was called, and the law

court, which baving now an inklipg
of the matter, gave loose rein to
their jubilant feelings. How Susan
felt, however, can be better imagined
than described. She blushed. like
one of her mother's peonies, and l4as
tily hid her face in her veil.
When the merriment had subsided,
and old Lippe had secured his equa
nimity, the happy attorney proceed

for his involuntary client, as caused
the judge to dismiss the suit. The
