BETWEEN TBE TWO.
Nimrod Oeilin, like liU namesake of
olJ.was a "mighty hunter" not of the
Leasts of the tieM nml the fowls of the
nir, for it is doubtful if his knowledge
of fire-arms enabled him to tell whether,
ia charging them, the powder or tho
shot went foremost but a fortune hunt
er, which ns the genial Artemus would
SHV, is "far dili'orcnt."
Fifteen years . of unsuccessful trial
would hnve discouraged a less ardent,
sportsman. Rut Nimrod had begun
eurl', and was yet only thirty-live, hav
ing till his hair and most of his teeth.
Tin xo was a suspicion of grey about his
temples, but by wearing ear-locks, well
combed forward, it was pretty well
quieted; and a slight tendency to cor
pulence was kept within bound by dai
ly course of dumb-bi lls before break
fast, long walks before dinner, and
scientific starvation according to Want
ing. Under all the circumstances ho
haw no reason tor giving up hope,
which, us the doctors tell us, is never

Flora t'oisyth, in her nineteenth year,
was the proltie.-t girl in the village a
fact to which the liveliest attention was
awakened in bachelor circles, when the
death of a rich relation left, her mistress
of twenty thousand dollars in hard cash
with no provisos.
Nini Odlin, especially, pricked up his
oars, lit! had known Flora from tier in
fancy, had patted her curlv head ap
Virovinirlv. when a little '!r!. just for
repenting more "golden tents" tlw.n any
other scholar in tho class nt Sunday-
school, anil smiled amusingly when she
answered tho vexed mtestion of who
was Cain's wife, by guessing it was Mrs.
In later years Mr. Odlin was too busy
with other pursuits to take much notice
of Horn. Hut he was a man of calcu
Jating mind, to whom a marriageable
young lady, plus twenty thousand dol
Jars, was what tho mathematicians call
a "rational quantity," while without
that, or any other portion, It would bo
quite irrational to think of her. Ac
cordingly, among tho first of those to
pay hoinairo to Flora and her fortune
was Mr. Nimrod Odlin.
obo received Ins attentions, if not
quite complacently, at least without
laughing at tneni- at any rate, beforo
Nimrod felt his way carefully, profit

taught linn that It was often (piito as
dangerous to bo loo precipitate ns too
Ono by one he advanced his parallels,
till at last ho felt that everything' was
roady for tho grand assault. His lirst
movement had more the appearance of
defense than attack. It was that of an
Infantry at the command, "Prepare for
cavalry" that is he Mink promptly on
"Dear Flora!" ho murmured, taking
her hand hih) pressing it to his liis,"l

"You heard I had twenty thousand
dollars," she was on the point of inter
rupting, but checking herself, quietly
Mr. Odlin seemed somewhat at a loss
for dates, and after stammering a little,
took refuge In tho Indefinite.
"I havi) loved you for years," ho
whispered softly. "Dearest, will you ho

the struggle to keep back a rising laugh.
"Dq not trifle with mo," he whiued
dolorously, striving, but with iudill'er
cut success, to start a tear.
"I only moan," said Flora "that as
your heart has stood tho strain 'for
years,' it can probably hold out a fort
night longer; and I must ask at least so
much time to consider your most unex
"You will consider it, then, and In
two weeks give rue an answer?" cried
Nimrod in a transport of hope.
"Yes, if you will keep in the sanio
mind till then."
"Till then!" ho exclaimed with fer
vor. "Aye, till then, and forever!"
"Very well, Mr. Odlin," said Flora
quietly, pointing to a chair. "Now,
don't "you think you had better tako an
easier 'position. You must bo quite un
Nimrod looked a little sheepish, and
took tho ofl'ered seat.
"Did you ever meet my Cousin 15oat
rix?" asked Flora, changing the sub
ject No; Nimrod had never had that
"She's to bo at Aunt llephzibah's in
a day or two. I should be pleased to
introduco you, but she and I haven't
spoken together of Into. However, that
needn't stand in the way. You know
auntio very well, and if you call, she'll
be sure to present you to Cousin Beat
rix. She's not reckoned bad looking if
sho has red hair though, for that mat
ter, sho has money enough to make it
pass for golden. Why, sho has fully as
much as I have in ready cash, atid is
down in auutio's will for her whole for
tune, which is ut least as much more."
Nimrml U'!i4 Itiorinniiur no oiinwij
speech expressive of contempt for riches
where tho heart is concerned, and his
lirm belief that chestnut Flora's curls
were chestnut was the original color
of human hair, in man's perfect cstito,
and that all other shades are pen er
bions resulting from the Fall but 1 )o

to bo excused on tho score of npre.-n.og

leave, promising to return at the end of
Three days afterwards, our friend
Nim made a friendly call on Aunt
Hephzihah, and was formally intro
duced to her niece, Miss lioatrix Tavi
tock, who had only arrived tho day
Miss Tavistock, as Flora had said,
was not a bad-looking girl. Sho was
about her cousin's age, to whom in
features and expression, sho bore a
strong family resemblance Hut her
hair! carroty? why carrots would

u red that it fairly made Niiurod's eyes
Hut as he thought of her twenty thou
sand in possession, and another twenty
thousand in expectancy, and heard
Aunt Hephzibah s hacking cough, the
e fleet of tho hair began to wear oil", and
was quite forgotten at the end of half
an hour, which sufliced to reveal the
fact that Miss Tavistock was altogether
the most engaging young lady he had
Nimrod repeated the visit the next
day, and tho next, and for many suc
ceeding days, and at every visit found
Miss neatrix more charming than ever.
Her treatment of him was decidedly
more encouraging than Flora's had
evor been. Indeed he had not a little
ingratiated himself by rather more than
half-wav chiming in with some not very
flattering criticisms of her cousin, in
dulged in by Miss Tavistock.
it lackod hut a dav l tho expiration
of the two weeks. By this time Nimrod
had reached tho conclusion that some
shados of red were not inferior to chet-
nut.cspecially when backed by the odds
of forty thousand dollars against twenty.
110 was furthermore convinced that
if ho popped tho question to Beatrix he
wouldn't )iave to wait two weeks for an
answer, that when it came there would
bo no danger of its being no.
But Nimrod wns a prudent man. Ili.-
proposal to Flora, while it remained un
answered, was, of course, subject to
withdrawal; and to withdraw it might
avoid many future complications. And
as no timo was to be lost, ho sat down
nt once and addressed a letter to Flora.
Wo shall not give it verbatim, having
no wish to furnish a form for tho tue of
other fickle lovers. Enough to say, it
was a perfect model of tho backing-out
letter, full of lying excuses and broth
erly jirofession of everlasting friendship.
"Now for tho fair Beatrix!" was
Nimrod's exultant ejaculation, as he
hied his stops to Aunt llephzlbah'sdoor.
But why unnecessarily prolong our
story? Tho sceno that followed up to
u certain point was an exact repeti
tion of thn ono tieforo described. Nim
rod had gone through it so many times
that there is no danger of his "stick
ing." He sank again on tho same knee,
seized Beatrix's hand, and, in the same
tone, made tho samo speech.
At tho words, "Will you ho mine? Do
not break my heart by saying no!" ho
bowed his head meekly.liko a suppliant
awaiting the answer whereon hangs life
or death. As wo havo said, Nimrod
had been through it all before, und
knew his part thoroughly.
Ho waited, hut tho answer did not
come. Ho felt a convulsive tremor of
the hand held In his. Doubtless Beatrix
was too agitated to speak. He ventured
to look up, started back, lost his bal
ance, and fell Into an attitude, rather
less graceful, but much tuoro firmly
poised, than that ho had just quitted.
Instead of Beatrix, it was Flora ho
saw before him, and it was her hand ho
held! With the other sho held up a
blazing red wig, while her own chest
nut curls shook about her fair neck
and shoulders with tho ringing burst
of laughter that shook her whole frame.
Nitnred spratig to his feet and rushed
out. We shall not repeat what ho said
on reaching tho struct. It would re
quire too many stars and dashes to
print it without breaking a certain well
known section of tho penal code.
