ers at every breath of wind, and the
birds wore singing a joyful greeting to
the new-born day:
To Laura, it was like going back to
the brightest days of her life, only with
an added sweetness that even .those
days had not possessed. '1 i
,They were driving slowly back, and
Laura was trying to conquer a rebuild
ioui distaste for the dull littlo oiBce,'
when, as they passed a largo mansion
on the outskirts of the town, Dr. Var
ney said abruptly: '" ;
"Do you know Kate Howard, Laura?"
'I know who she is. A cat may look'
at the queon, you know. Her father
owns tho iron mills, and they live In
the beautiful house we just passed.1' . ,
'What do you think of her?"
: "I think she i one of tho most beau
tiful ladies I havo ever seen, and, 1
imagine, one of tho proudest. Why do
you ask? You swm to be interested in
k." ' ,
"I am. Tho truth is," he said, look
ing straight ahead of him, aud speak
ing fast, "the medical convention is
uot the ouly business that brought' mo
to Kingston. I have thought seriously
of asking Kate Howard to be my wife.
1 met her last summer at Long Branob,
and an-ain in t10 winter, audi do not
think she -ill say no." , ,- ,.,: t,
Thor was a moment's silence as the
rr) tnifrarled with tho sudden feeling
bitter pain and desolation that came
over nor, ana strove to sny tho kindly
commonplace words that were expected
of her. ,
And thfn he went on:
"It may seem odd that I should tell
you this, Laura, even before I have
spoken to her, but we have boon almost
brother and sister, and I would like to
have God-speed from you before I make
the plunge." : '
"You havo it, Frank;" ahe said brave
ly. ; "May you win the woman you love,
and every good gift that life can give!"
But the delicate beautiful face was
very white when he lifted hor down at
tho door of the station, and her eyes
did not meet his when she bade him
cood-bve. And in Dr. Varnev's heart,
us he drove away, there was a curious
dissatisfied feeling, that he could neither
analyse or account for.
It was not quite dissipatod when ho
sat that evening on tho pleasant piazza
of Mr. Howard s house, with the scent
ed breath of acacia and roses coming
up from the garden, and Kate looking
very oeauurui in ner cooi wima uiusuq,
bv his side. And his thoughts would
wander to a littlo figure in simple ging
ham dress, and a delicate pale faco set
in a frame of soft brown hair.

, Nor did the note he received, from
Miss Howard the following morning'
.half playful, half apologetio alter nis
decision". He would go home and
think it out among his patients. It
was not a question to be decided lightly,
And then he strolled down to the sta
tion, and over to Laura's little den. -
She was busy, and did not look tip
for a moment, and he had time to note
how white sho was, and thore were
dark circles under the pretty blue yes,
that told of a sleepless night. ..
She looked up with a little smile of
welcome, but did not invite him in. , , ,
He waited for no invitation, how
ever, but went inside the railing, and
with the light of a now resolution on
his face,, bent over her.
"What havo you been doing to your
solf, little girl? he said very tenderly.
"I am afraid my prescription was not a
good one. Shall I give you a new one?
or have you lost faith in my treatment?"
, "You had better get Aliss Howard's
consent t- your plan of treatment. It
is Just possible sho might object to it'
replied Laura with a forced laugh.
"Miss Howard has nothing to do
with it, Laura. Shall I tell you what
the new prescription is? It is to go
back to the old nomo with me to the
doar old mother who always loved you,
and will give you a gladder welcome
than she could give anyone else to go
as my wife. ill, you come, dear?"
She lookod up with a startlod expres
sion, which changed to ono as haughty
as Miss Howard's own.
"Kate Howard has rejected you, and
you com to mo in pique," she said
with a choke in her voice.
"Laura, have I ever given you cause
to think so badly of me? Miss Howard
did not reject me, for she has not had
the opportunity. I never really cared

fiud it Lard to believe it after my folly

Howard's beauty, but I nover loved

railing in a frantic endeavor to attract

up his mind to msrryher. He went to

lot of trouble; and the father refused to
part with her unless the suitor promis-.;
ed to make a bridge across every stream
he came to for her to pass dry-footed.
This the suitor promised to do. lie.
married the girl and lived very comfort
ably with her for two years, when he
went, as usual, owl-hunting, leaving
his wife to make a now camp. As
usual, he made bridges over all the
creeks he oame to. At last he came to
a dry one. Over this he made no '
bridge, but walked on for about a mile, ;
where he hung up his bag to show 1
where he wished the oamp to be made.
He then went on and made his snares.
It rained while he was doing so, and he '
returned early, expecting to find' the
camp. But when ne came to the place.,
there was the bag but no camp. Going'
back to look for nis wife he came to the

what astonished him more was that a.
