Very delibciately sho knit round to tlic

cvrtily, and laid it on the table be-sidtt her;
look olf her Fpcetach'H and placed theai
near her knitting ; then taking a pinch
of saufJ, leaning back in her chair, and
looking around at the ladies, who were all

howsomever, what there is of it you're
wi'Icomo to hear! You sec, the other day
I made up my mind that I'd take a gooa,
long walk. I don't go about so much as
I used to, but f. mutinies I get sort of low
ppcrited, you know and I find nothing
so good in that caeo as a long, brisk walk.
So as I was saying, I made up ray mind
soon after breakfast that I'd go out, so I
got on my things and off I went. 'Twas
as purty a day as one would want to fieo;
maybe you remember it ; let me see last

Well, Tuesday or Wednesday, which
ever day it wa3, 'twas a proper fine day ;
so I went along, Rtopping at dry-goods

wa always a great hand for that. I re

and hia sister-indaw. They muU have

caid Mrs. Webb.
44 They had him along that day " r

" Well, let it bo for what it may," gaid
Mrs Parker, 44 isn't it the most shameful

to shake'hands with mc. IK: seemed kind
of bashful, and 'she la tight: d a little, aud
said that Arty was forgetting mc, ho saw
mo so seldom Thinks I there's a chance
for me, so caya I, 4 Like enough he
doesn't know me, but I'd remember him
if 1 hadn't geen him for years.' Then
she smiled again and said, 4 You think
you would?' 'Why,' says I, 4 4Pd know
him at the end of the world, h'j's so like
his father.' Then she colored a little, and
began to smooth down his curly hair, aii
says she very quietly, 4 Yes, Arty is very

blance is so gnat ; if it extend to mind
and heart as well as person, I shall havo
nothing to wish for in his regard.' 4 Ex

4cs, Mr. Gilmer was a proper good man,
and it si-cms hard he wasn't spared a while
longer. I tupposo Arthur jocsn't remem

long since he died. It seems liko 'twaa

"Oh, that was cute of you, aunt Sally,'
said Mrs. Parker. 44 What did tho way to

lwish you'd been there to see her; she
first turned red'and then white, and she
had as much as she could do to keep from
bursting out crying right there at t he
counter. I eaw that plain enough. But
after a bit she says, ' It fccdm a long, drea
ry time to Arty and mc.' "
44 Yes, I expect' it does, but sho ought to
bo ashamed to tell it, if it does seem so
long to her," said Mrs. Webb. 44 And such
a good, kind husband as he was, too, and

aunt Sally ?"
44 1 didn't say any more to her. I was
satisfied that ahe was struck with what I
gaid, for sho only shook her head when
Edward Gilmer wanted her JoJook at some
thing eke. So they went away; he look
ed at her very anxious as they passed out,
for he hadn't heard what 1 was saying to

or lainting, or
