in soap making. Sonpmado from cocoanut

"Madge Carrol" in Arthur's Magazine.
Arthur Oklll sat In his deceased friend't
ofllce, penislng, iu tho capacity of executor
an epistle directed to Joseph Laux, nnd
signod Krmyntmdo Southwivyd. Although
addressed familiarly'" 'Dear Joe," nnd overflowing
with sentimental reminiscences, it
was a business, not a love lotter, elso ho would
not have read It. It appeared that the
writer's father left Thornton twenty years
previous, owing Joo who had then just entered
man's estate money for house rout
Having but recently discovered this fact, tho
lady, being now possessed ot considerable
proiierty, desired In justice to jmy both
principal nnd interest.
Such wns tho sum mid sulistnnco of this
letter, rcAd In tho golden after-glow of one of
Juno's fairest days. There was howover,
ono lino over which Aitliur OkiH pondorod
seriously. It ran thus:
"Tho story so sweetly liegun nnd so sadly
broken off under thnt root you know well."
Yes, of course, Joo Laux kew. When
queenly Kiniyntrudo Southmnyd broke her
engagement with Arthur 0KI1I, nil tho gossips
In tho village got hold ot this racy bit of
news and rolled it liko somo toothsome morsel
under their tongues. The elders remembered
It to this day, although the iliscniiled lover
had at different times honorably wooed and
won two of their daughters and had buried
them, and children with thfiii, under the rod
and white clover bloom In Thornton's littlo
green graveyard. Kolks seldom forget
thtngs of this sort, More's the pity. From
his window ho could mhj ncross
the way tho eaves under
which thoy paiUxl ho sadly and so coldly long
Sinco that moniorablu evening he had
writton all sorts of hard ami bitter things
ngiilust this beautiful, imperious creature,
ami had cloxcd and sealed tho pages time nud
ngnln, only to ojh'ii them onco more jind rewrite,
although for nearly twenty years her
light step had never erovscd his path.
'ow at hud, as tho day died In omlicr reds
along tho gentle (.lojies pf Thornton, he fell
to reading Iwtwccn thuMj lioiy lines penned
with his heart's licit bloiKl, and to wondering
whether If ho had but refustjd to have taken
that rash girl nt bor word sho would not have
been toilchcd aud have melted like wax under
love's IndomltAblo llame. Sitting thoro iu
he crimson nnd ninlier Min-glow, with whltu
uid pink Hatting iu nt tho ohh
.viiiduw like fcentl, tinted snowlliikes, ho
.vishrd, vaguely, that this thought had no
lined to him then, and thnt ho had acted
iiion it. As it wns, lr"wns too Into. Even
tlw adies of that old love were Ho
would Kooncr exHct to liehold thoso whom
lie had and laid nwny coino forth in
fleshy bablllmeiits tlinn to find that
annihilated sission clothed anew and dwelling
In his bosom.

M11.. Oklll, as if compassing the round ot
human misery. "Is she uttor our dear old

"Nonsensel You know nil ulxjut Joe's 16.V6
affairs. Any way, she always, held her bead
00 high for such ut h or, inilwil, any one,

"tuned to be so grand, I really thought she
tulod a kingdom, nu.l often wished I could
'lp into tlio house and see her crown aud

The inorrowg mid-hour found Miss
Alighted nt tlinjiratty vlnoengarlanded

ttio well known streets, ou oiie
comer of which was Joe's otUce, and upon

Uiough sho pulled her gray traveling veil
cvfer her face, half dotermluud neither to see

and bit of wooillaiid givnn and emerald
swiird. Sho had not como with any intention
ol remaining oven for .one day. There were
polnful memories connected with the
plnco other than those Interwoven with
"love's youug .dream." Tieii, too, there was
ivl)y no oiQ she cnreil see,
J1 Laux, Tho remaining member of tho
only family whoso acqunliitanco sho had kept
up removed some tluou mouths previous, and
wuio now her neighbors iu the city where she
mndo her home.
Still, strive as sho would, bitter-sweet
mein.iries crowded in uiwii her, nnd when at
leyigtbttho met Arthur Oklll face to face, hers
was rapt, dewed like that 'of n rosu in the
jlish of dawn.
Thb'Hpo, rod lips still disclosed tholr
rosary; there was no thread of silver
among thoso chestnut braids, 110 trace ot a
wriukle on those rounded choeks. While far
younger women, such us Cad Oklll, ngod un-tier

although she had earned hor bread and mot
many trials, was even more regally lieautiful

fio Instant these two, who had wrecked
vnch other's hope, clasped hands, and eyomot
cy in s4archliig,.yraniing gaze; then the lady
s.uii, quietly enough outwardly:

thoro was little more said on either side. Mrs.
Okill was suniinouod and chattered for about
(if teen minutes, after which her
attended Miss Southmhyd to the little
station, prossod her band, and
Miss Southmayd's parlor was not gorgeous;
it was simply a cozy nook in wh'lch to do or
to dream great or lovely things.' Sitting
there, with roseate lighta and violet shadows
flitting over face and figure, "Emprtes
Ermyuti tide's" heart beat true, but sho was
on her guard against this much-married

that, seemingly, was all. It was,
nevertheless, odd what a YAst amount of "red
tnpo" Mr. Oklll managed to wind about this
bit of business. It became necessary he should
call again. Dining this Interview, he dashed
into the subject nearest his thoughts and
heart' in a manner which might strlkoonoaa
abrupt, awkward, but "very human."

as well break our engagement."
"As you please," ho had replied, toftlly.
Two days afterward they met nt the party

came the Sonthmnyds' removal, and

"Nor Is there iu llfo any thing bo sweet as
