THE WAY SHE WON HIM,
A young girl leaned from the window of

looking man some ten years her senior, who

her with rose buds still glittering with dew.

"Orrly to describe you beau ideal Io me,

companion desisting from bis sport, leaning

her animated face with an admiritiK mile,
" "Oh, that ta easily done I Imprimii

The days passed by. Marion, like Godfrey
was simply a guest at her uncle's pleasant
home, and at liberty to devote her whole time
if aha cJionre to du ao. Much of It was passed
in his company especially as the arrival ofj
Jennie Hrrinn, her dearest friend, Jlansfielils

gallant reliiive away from lier.
While i lit young lovers, absorbed in each

And yet, all this familiar intercourse could
not make him one whit more lover like than
he bad been on that fir.st unhappy morning.
If his eye flashed nnw and then, and his ho-

ed embrace if hi hind trembled at the light
touch of hers, 'or his Cheek paled and flushed
at the fanning of her warm breath, she never
knew it. He was always quiet, reserved and
rather cnld -never striving to seek the vacant
place by her side, but taking it, if all circum

. A Christian minister in this. vicinity, made
the observation recently, thai there were more
"backsliders from religion in the Western Re

If a "typo" be a man nf family; he is debarred
