Mary Ellsworth hail never seen Farm
er UayiH'sfurd before; yet tho moment
her eyes rested on his wrinkled, sun
burned face, with tho shaggy brows over
shadowing kind eyes, she felt that he
was a friend, and made answer prompt
ly: "Not sick, sir; but very tired. We
havo walked a long way."
"Got much farther to go," asked tho
farmer, licking tho horse's ear with the
end of his whip.
Mr. Kaynesford gave a low whistle.
"That's four miles olT, and tho littlo
gal is pretty nigh used up already."
"I know it," said tho woman with a
siph, "but I havo no money to hire a
lodging nearer. In Brockton I hope to
obtain work iu the factory."
. Farmer Kaynesford gave the seat of
his wnjon a thump with luawhip-liaudlc
that made old Bouncy drop tho mouth
ful of clover ho was nibbling from the
roadside and prick up his cars in aston
ishment "I won't hear to no such thing!" said
lie energetically. "Why, that child can't
go twenty rods farther! Here, get in
along with me. You won't be none the
worsu for a iit of supper and a good
night's rest. I know llannah'll scold,"
lie uttered, as he lifted the little girl to
his side, and extended his hand U the
mother; "but I can't see fulks perishin'
by the waysidu and never oiler to help
'Jm. I don't care if she scolds the roof
of tho house oil."
He drove rapidly along, makingocca
sional inter jcctional remarks to his horse,
while Mrs. Ellsworth drew her thin shawl
around the little golden bead that al
ready dropped drowsily upon her should
er, and thought with a deep sensation
of gratitude upon the shelter Heaven had
provided her in her sorest strait.
! It was an odd-shaped old farm-houso,
rjray with- the storms of nearly half a
century, with a broad door in one end,
overhung by giant lilac bushes, and a
kitchen where even in the bloomy month
of Juno a great lire roared up tho wido
throated chimney, and shining rows of
tins winked and glittered at every up
ward leap of the 11 ames.
Mr. Kaynesford jumped out of the
wagon, tlirew the reins over a post, and
went in to conciliate his domestic des
pot, "Look here, Hannah," said he, to a
tall, angular-lot iking feiivxle who emerg
ed from a pantry near by, her face near
ly or quite as sour as the saucer of pick
les ehe was carrying. "Jest Ret a couple
more plates on the table, will you? 1 vo

I found a piece below, e'en almost tired
to death. They was calculatin' to walk
on to lirockton, but I thought it wouldn't
hurt us to keep 'era over night."
"I'm astonished at you. Job Kaynes
ford," said his better half, in a tone of
indignant remonstrance. "Wo might
just as well hang out a tavern sign at
once and done with it; you're always
bringing homo some ioor, miserable

"There, there, Hannah," interrupted
Mr. Kaynesford, "I'm always willin' to

able, but it goes clear ag'in my grain to
Bee poor folks a sulTerin' and never
stretch out a helpin' hand. 'Taint, Scrip

"Well go your own gait, Job Kaynes
ford," responded his wife, tartly. "Only
mark my words, if you don't end your
days iu tho poor house, 'twon't bo
turougn no limit o yourn!
Sho shut the pantry door with a bang
that made all the jelly-cups and milk-
pans rattle, while Job, wilh an odd
piniaco, went out to help his guesU to
"Don't mind my old woman," said he,
apologetically, as Mrs. Ellsworth sprang
to tho ground. "She's kind o' sharp
spoken, but she means well after all. Wo

"If all the world were like you, sir,"
said tho young widow, with tears in her
eyes, "there would be less want and suf-
firing, by far."
Farmer Kaynesford pretended not to
hear; ho was busy lifting little Mary
. "Set on them blackberries, Hannah,"
eaid lie, toward the close of their even
ing meal; "tho little gal's so tired she
can't eat uothin' Holid."
"I was calculating to keep tho black
berries for the donation parly to-morrow,"
said Mrs. Uayiicsford, rising wilh
rather an unwilling air.
"Nonsense," mioth the farmer, with a
broad laugh, "I'm having a donation
party of my own to-night. Here, littlo
ono, seo if thoso berries don't put some
color into yuur cheeks."
All the evening littlo Mary sat by tho
hearth, with her baud iu her mother's
and her large blue eyes fixed earnestly
upon tho kind farmer's face.
"What am you thinking about dear
est?" asked itfr. Ellsworth once. She
threw a long sigh and whispered:
K)h, mamma, ho is so kind to us!"
When Mury Ellsworth a'nl her little
irl sot out next morning upon their long
walk to Ureekton, Job Kayinford went
with them to the gate, fumbling uneasi
ly iu his pocket and glancing guiltily
around to make mure that Hannah wiw
not within seeing distance. When Mary
extended her hand to say good by, to her
astonishment u bank bill was thrust in
"Don't say nothin," muttered Job,
, with a sheepish air. "Ten dollars ain't

smile. It was not the first piece of Han

The years flitted by sprinkling the
steep old farm-house with crystal tlrops
of April showers, and thatching it with
the dazzling cnuino of January snows,
many and many a time. Gray hairs
crept in among the raven locks of Farm
er Kaynesford, the care-worn wrinkles
began to gather around his mouth and
brow. Alas! those swift-footed years
brought troubles innumerable to the
kind old man.
"Twenty vears!" mused ho, one bright
June morning "it don't seem possible,
Hannah, that it was twenty years ago

none of us perfect, you know, wife but
that is not one of them. No, I never for

Hannah shrugged her shoulders but
made no reply.
"Didn't you say you were going up to
see the rich lawyer about the five thou
sand dollars to-day?" she asked, pres
ently. "Yes, but I don't suppose it'll be much

And Job meekly obeyed, only too
happy to escape from the endless discord
of Ins wife's rolling tongue.
Tho rays of the noonday sun streamed
brightly through the stained glass case
ments of Mr. Everleigh's gothie library.
The room was decorated with appurten
ances of wealth and taste. Velvet
chairs, with tall baeksof daintily carved
rosewood, were scattered here and there;
marble vases occupied niches besido the
doorway, and tho rarest pictures hung
on tho panelled and gilded wall. Hut
tho prettiest object of all theono which
tho rich lawyer oftenest raised his eyes
from the writing to contemplate with an
involuntary smile of prido and affection
was a lovely woman iu a white cash
mere morning robe, trimmed with vel
vet, who stood opposite arranging (low
ers iu a bouijiiet. She wore a spray of
berries, carved of pink Neapolitan coral,
lit her throat, ana tiny pendants of tho
same rare stone in her shell-like, cars,
and the slender waist was tied around
with a pink ribbon.
"There, Walter, isn't that pretty?"
she- asked, holding up her completed
"Very pretty," he answered, looking
not at the roses or geraniums, hut direct
ly at tho bine eyes and golden curls of
his beautiful young wife.
"You are not even noticing it," alio
"Kecauso I see something so much
bettor worth looking at," ho said, play
fully. "Do you really love me so very much?"
she asked, throwing down the (lowers
and coming around to his side.
Ho rose and drew her caressingly to
"My dearest, you aro moro precious
to mo than tho whole world liesnles!"
She let her head rest for a moment on
his shoulder, and when she raised it there
was a tear on her eyelashes.
"Oh, Walter, if mamma could only
see how happy we are!"
there was a knock at tho door. Mrs.
Everlelgh slipped from her husband's
arm with the prettiest blush in tho
.world, and was very busy with her llow
ers when the rich lawyer's "right hand
man" put his grizzled head into the
"Tho old man wants to see you aliout
that Fairweather business,"
"Show him in. Don't look so disap

head disapiH urcd. "I shall not bo de
tained. three minutes, and tho horses aro
at tho door."
Mary Everlelgh never troubled her
pretty little headabout business matters,
so she never looked up as tho halting
sound of old Mr. Kaynesford's crutch
echoed on tho carpet Hut tho instant
ho spoke sho started as if nn arrow had
smitten her, and her slender hands clasp
ed together, listening as Intently as
though her life depended on hearing ev
ery word. Tho old man was ploriding
and sorrowful her husband politely in
dexible. At length Job Kaynesford
turned to go.
"Well, sir," he said, in a subdued
tone, -J don't know much about law

t hat an old man should bo turned out of
tho homo that has sheltered him for six
ty years, and nil for no fault of his own.

THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN:
sir; livo thousand dollars may sown a
small sum to you, but it is my all."
Mrs. Everleigh's soft voico broke tho
momentary silence that succeeded this
"Walter, como hero ono minute- I
want to speak to you."
Ho obeyed, somewhat surprised; sho
drew him into a deep recces of stained
glass window, and standing thero with
tho rosy and amber shadows playing
about her lovely brow, like some fair
pictured saint, she told him how twenty
years wo a wearied child and its moth
er were fed and sheltered by a kind
hearted stranger; how he had given
them money and kind wishes, when they
were utterly alone and desolato in tho
.wide world. " .
"Hut. my love, what has all this to do
with my business matters?"
"Much, Walter! I am that littlo
"You, my dearest?"
"I, my husband, and tho noblo man
who, I am persuaded, saved my life that
night, stands yonuVr, with gray, bowed
head and sinking heart!".
"Mary, you must surely beniistaken."
"I cannot Ikj mistaken, Walter, I
should know him among a thousand.
You said you loved m, this morning

"What is it, dearest?"
"Give me that note bo spoke of."
Mr. Evcrleigh silently went to a small
ebony cabinet, unlocked it and drew
out a folded paper, which he placed in'
her hands. She glided up to tho old
man, who had been gazing out of a win
dow in a sort of reverie, and laid her
soft hand on his arm.
"Do vou remember the little golden
haired Mary whom you found with her
mother, wearied out on tho roadside,
twenty years ago?"
"Do I remember her, lady? It was
but this very morning I was recalling
the whole scene."
"And tlon't you recognize mo?" she
said, smiling up into his face, as she
drew back the drooping curls. "I am
He stood in bew ildered silence. All
of a sudden the truth seemed to break
upon him, ami ho laid his hand upon her
head with a tearful blessing.
"And your mother, my child?"
"Sho has been dead for years; but it
is my dearest task to be the instrument
of her gratitude. Here is the note you
indorsed; my husband has given it to
A small lamp was burning in ono of
the niches; she held the bitof paper over
the llaino until it fell a cloud of light
ashes upon tho lloor.
Mrs. Kaynesford met her husband at
tho door tho instant his crutches sound
ed on the little graveled path.
"Why don't you speak? Of course I
know you've nothing but bad news to
tell, but I may as well hear it at once.
Have you seen tho gentleman? What
did ho say?"
"Hannah," said old Job Kaynesford,
slowly folding up his gloves, "do you
remember the itf 10 I gave that poor
young wanderer a score years ago to
day?" "Why, of course I do. Didn't I re
mind you of it not twelvo hours ago?
What has that to do with our troubles,

"What do you mean, Job Kaynes

evening is Lawyer Everleigh's wifo, and
I have seen her burn the note that has
hung like a mill-stone around my neck
for many years. She said it was paying
a sacred debt of gratitude; but heaven
knows I looked for no such reward."
There was a moment's silence. The
old man was pondering over the past,
and Mrs. Kaynesford was so taken by
surprise that she really could not say
"And now, wife, what havo you to
say about my financial mistakes?" said
Mrs. Kaynesford had no argument
