prove true. Nine o'clock, then ten,

Keziah peered from the window.
"Humph!" she ejaculated. "Here

after you, Mr. Ellery."
"Ver, well," was the calm reply;
"let himn come."
"All right. Say, M1r. Ellery, it's
none of my business, but I wouldn't
say anything about your seein' Grace
home. That's none of his business,
either, or anybody else's."
The head of the parish committee
stalked into the study and the door
cJoed behind him. A rumble of
vo :es in animated conversation suc
Mrs. Coffin went out into the kitchen
and resumed her business of making
a dried-apple pie.
She was looking down below the
door, which opened outward and was
swung partly back on its hinges. From
under the door projected a boot, a
man's boot and one of ample size.
Keziah's cheeks, already red from
the heat of the stove, reddened still
more. Her lips twitched and her eyes
"Hum!" she said. "They say you
can tell the Old Scratch by his foot
prints, even if you can't smell the
sulphur. Anyhow, you can tell a Ham
mond by the size of his boots. Come
out from behind that door this min
ute. Ain't you ashamed of yourself?"
The owner of the boot stepped forth
from behind the door and seized her
by both hands.
"Halloo, Keziah!" he cried joyfully.
"My, but it's good to see you."
"Halloo, Nat!" said Keziah heartily.
"It's kind of good to see you, too."
The rest of him was in keeping
with his boots. He was big and broad
shouldered and bearded. His face,
above the beard, was tanned to a deep
reddish brown, and the corners of his
eyes were marked with dozens of tiny
wrinkles. He was dressed in blue
cloth and wore a wide-brimmed, soft
felt hat. He entered the kitchen and
tossed the hat into a corner.
"Well!" he exclaimed. "Why don't

Attractive ways of furnishing and 1(
decorating the liviRg room are with- d
out limit. But, thotgh everything in
the room is newly bought, one's frst
endeavor should be to avoid the ap
pearance of newness and "unused- f
ness"-Make it look lived in at once.
Of equal importance is the artificial
lighting. In providing lights, a glare
must be avoided it the room is to re
tain any charm of appearance. On
the other hand, it most not be so drk f
and gloomy that it is impossible to
read in it without injuring the eyes.
In the older apartments sad houses,
where there are only the middle lights
in the room, the only way of solving
this difficulty is by the use of table
lamps. These should be seIected is
view of their usefulness, as well as
their decorative merit. Good looking
and practical lamps are made for both
electricity and gas, as well as for oil.
Few "city bred" persons ralie the
real value of a good oil lamp for read
