Having heard rumors concernins a

the ni-'bt express wenl whirling by;
and from the depths of her heart there
went a prayer that Like would come

'They have paid,' he said quietly, as

Tom took two chairs, placed them

Mabchl Granger was a well to ?J
young farmer, lie had ?i smart cha?e
of produce on baud, and though fa
might as well take a run up to towu an
baye a look for ulauelf at the state t
the market. He had worked hard a
summer, and was disposed to make tli
most of the fruits of his labor. Beside
he knew Fauny Fainiel.l was ou a vis
to her city con-ill's, the Primpleys, au
Ualacbi was dying to see her, UlOUg
he won't avouch thai had any thing t
do with suggesting a trip to town i
that particular season.
Once there, however, it woald havi
been rude not to make a friendly ca
on Fanny, und Fanny was the last pel
son Malachi would have dreamed c
being rude to. Ho had uever venture
to tell her how mnch be liked her; bu
she gueoeed it pretty well, and wasn'
offended at it cither, notwitbstandin
Hie pleasure she took iu keeping hit:
uudei' the harrow by withholding th
slightest sign of cncmiragemeut.
?1 low arc you. Ki? I'm real glad t
see you. was Fanny's greeting, an
'Ki' thought it was well worth a trip t
i town to get it.

thing "alias Primleys was quit
another affair. They received him wit
a couple of stiff bows, uot designing
i word in reply to his bashful?
?Howdy ladies ?'
His discomfiture was still greatei
? when, on being presented to Mi
Poppyflower, the j i -' fashion
able friend, that gentleman de<
notice his proffered hand, vouchsatln,
no other recognition than a stony star
i through , tat. And when th
iraleye plied Ki with question
i about the opera, and how be like?
Signora de Screechi, he could onl;
stammer that lit'il never seen the la?ly
and felt so silly and awkward that b<
id himself a thousand miles away
couldn't they talk about the crops
i or the weather, or some other sensibh

Ki rejoiced at the prospect ot having
a few words in private with Fanny by
the way. But to his intense disgust,
sir? Poppyflower cut In ahead and taking
Fanny on hi-arm. led the way, leaving
Ki to follow with the two Miss Prim
ley?, between whom be felt as crushed
and chilled as if h. liad been welg d

'Drink that,' said he. handing one of
the glasses to Ki.
K; did so. He thought it tasted
little soapy, but was too polite to Mtf -
?Now take that.'
?lie drained the other glass,
dropped from bis hand with a crash.
fearful change came over bis
nance. Jets of loam spouted Irom I
mouth and nostrils. He was certa
gushing from hli eyei a:

swallowed a volcano in full eruption.
He fled toward the door. 'Murder !

Fanny was a little alarmed at flrsi
But when told ii ??s only gekillt
powders, ibe was forced to join ?u th
laugh, fc.uing to share the ridicule he
