M Miss Courtwrlght stood looking
H down tho roso-bordored walk toward
m tlio whlto road. She liumrocd a llttlo
H tuno and tapped her whlto clad foot
H In accompaniment.
M For tho first tlmo since her mother's

H sho was all In filmy whlto in honor of
B ' Billy's coming. Sho was thinking of
fl Billy as sho stood thoro, of bis fresh,
H boyish enthusiasm, his Invigorating
H personality and his lore for her
H which novor scorned to chango, nl-
m though sho had told htm ovcry dun-
H day for weeks that ho was not tho
H kind of a man sho could marry.
H And after thin, dash of cold wator,
H Billy would look very thoughtful for
B fully thirty mlnutos.
H They had known each other for al-
H most fi'.o years. Billy had met hor
H nbroaj when sho hnd been traveling
m with her mother, and tho tender, frn-
fl gilo llttlo mother had bcon complete-
H ly won by BIlly'H smile.
H As for Billy, "I novor know what my
M mother was like," ho said to her onco,
H "but sho must bavo been just llko
Thoy had been so much to each
J othor, this mother and daughter, and
J nlnco tho mother' death Billy had
H never missed spending his Sundays In
tho llttlo town whero Mrs. Court-
wrlght had died and whero her daugh-
B tor lived. Ho realized how lonoly tho
girl must be, and although sno would
not admit it horsolf, tho lmprcsslvo
Btlllnoss of tho big houso was very
trytnc at times.
B To-day was ono of thosa ported
BBV' ' days In Juno and Miss Courtwrlght, as
BB sho stood In tho door was glad, In a
BB vague sort of way, to bo nllvo.
BB "Dear Billy," bIio mused tenderly to
BB herself, "I wonder why ho doesn't

Aftor a fow mlnutos sho tumod her

If thoro was it nolo of sadness In

Thus encouraged, Billy began an
enthusiastic description, and Miss
Courtwrlght listened, still with a far
off look In bur eyes.
"Sho Is beautiful." he said, vaguely,
"and dark haired and altogothor ador

whoso glorious hair was tho color ot
"No, short and plump and dimpled,"
replied tho enraptured Billy.
"I hnto dimples." Quickly decided
Miss Courtwrlght to herself. But
aloud, "I know I chall lovo hor dearly."
Suddonly ho pullod out his watch,
and startod to his ocl. "I must hur

but I have an Important engagement
In town and cannot stay to tea."
Ho shook hands hurriodly and wont
swiftly up tho path nnd was lost to
Miss Courtwrlght's watching oyoc.
About nn hour later Miss Court

and up tho stairs to her room; sho

up and piled before her for distribu

Copperhead Around His Neck.
Monday ovenlng James A. Allen,
who lives In Annandnlc, went Into his

horso. When he picked the hay up ho
pressed It against tho mow to get a
hotter grip on it, nnd as ho did so no
ticed whit he thought was a strap fall
against his neck with a very cold feel
ing. Just then ho reached tho light, and
to his horror found that It was not a
strap, but a llvo copperhead snako
that had been caressing his Juglar. A
copper is a very quick reptile, but in
this instanco Allen landed beforo his
snakeshlp could strike.
Just what happened Mr. Alton can't

of tho wlndup are very hazy nnd con
