' May Russell, aftor two or throo win*
tors of bollobood in bor nativo town,
went to visit her cousins in Rlankvillo.
S?bo was not twenty-ono yoars old, and
was a pretty, swuot-tomporod vivacious
Her friends soon saw that Doctor
Holmes, tho physician of tho village,
meant to win May for bis wife, and that
May was ready to bo won. For tho first
jtfmo in her lifo she had found a man

and in whom she could find bor own
1 Doctor Holmes was an honorable man
of great depth and tenderness of fool
thg, who had been a faithful son and
loyal friend, and who would give his
tvboTo heart to his wifo.
"Ho is too good for May," said her
bonslo, Mrs. Uussoll, to bor husband.
"Thegirl began her flirtations at school,
wh' n she was ten years old. The doc?
tor has never before wished to marry
uny woman. Shb is skilled in tho con?
duct ol sham lovo alTairs."
"Tho fooling is real with her now,"
ropllod Mr. Russell.
1 Dujto.- Holme's was a grave, quiet

}to bo rash. Vet snrely bo could make
mo mistake in taking this apparently in?
nocent, arth ss, swoot-naturod girl into
bis heart and home forever'.'
At last ho resolved to besitato no
longer, and one ovoning wont to the
hoaso determined to ask her to bo his
v.'ifo. A young girl, one of May's com?
panions, was in the room with her, and
both wem looking amusedly at a largo
eard. on which were fiistened six locks

"What bavo you there?" asked Doc?
May laugh'd saucily. "1 call them

said. "They are locks of the hair or

Doctor Holmes was silent, llorfriond

said, "Aro you seriou-? l)o you mean
that these mon have boon .-o much in?

regard for you as to glvo yon locks of
their hair, possibly at your requost?"
"Yes, Indeed," she said laughing. "In
my part of the country a girl would feel
neglected if sho had not received some
feuch tokens of personal regards, per?
haps of lovo, from gentlemen who had
pffercd her special nttention. She never
hio..ns really to marry them."
"Rut she allows oacb man to loo': upon
her as possibly his future wife, probably

"Yes. There does not to me seem to
