like a creeping fog over the hills, and
that she has never get rid of since.
It was a sore point between us-what
tain the politicians called a vexed question.
I felt that Polly was always watching
me; and I didn't wish to be put in lead

to say it-I went to the White Black

drank, and once or twice of a particn

into drinking something stronger than
beer; and my brain wasn't the kind to
stand liquid fire with impunity. And
Polly cried, and I lost my temper, and
well, I don't like to think of all these
things now, Thank goodnesse, they are
over and gone.
That afternoon, as I stood on the back

waste of the flat fields through which I
the iron track seemed to extend itself
like an endless black serpent, I looked I

But as night fell, the blinding drift of
a great snow storm came with it. We
were belated by the snow which col
lected on the rails, and when we reach
ed Earldale there was a little girl, who n
had been sent on in the care of the con- lti
ductor, who must wait either three or b
four hours or be taken home across a 51
snowy field by some one who knew the "
I thought of my own little children. c
"I'll take her," said I-and lifting hsr -
up, I grathered my coarse, warm coat a
about her and started on the long, cold 8'
walk under the whispering pines along tl
the edge of the river. ki
I honestly believe she would have re
froxen to death if she had been left in he

of THE HOT WEATHER. ' a
,ol- Swe(.vy, Williamsport, Bireakflst Table.
ch- It was very hot here last Sunday
rho night. The thermometer was way up in
on. the hundreds, and hlike the youth who
or bore 'mid snow and ice a banner with at
a strange device, its motto seemed to be
the "Excelsior." It went up-up--up; but
never busted and come down. You d
en. could hear people sweating blocks away t
sir -sweating in all conceivable positions
'at and shapes; sweating by telophonp, o
)ld sweating by refrigerators, sweating, by a
ng thunder. But it remained for a well d
known Fifth ward man to find how hot it
ve really was. Instead of going , his bed, s
in he procured a trusty sheet and blanket I
in and proceeded to the ironing room,
per where he thought the sweet breezes
he would come to fan him and make music
en with his soul. Abont an hour after lihe
thus retired, the domestic remembered a
edI that she had to get up early and attend la
id to the washing, as the next morning
'11 (Monday)would be wash day. Think- t
ing that if the fire was already made in l
a the wash room a great load would be al
ne taken off hqr mind and she could sleep
t. easier, she went down into the wash it
Sroom. She moved stealthily (the family (
t, slept on the floor iust above,) all uncon
re scions of the Fifth ward man, who was he
r- lying beneath the ironing table locked in hat

roaring in the stove, and the girl t eo

te night. When the wood had all burned eN
out and the coals began to take hold of Cs
is the fire in that tenacious way which war- is
, rants a fire good to hold out for five or he
six hours, the hired girl noislessly with- he
drew, being careful to close the door as

n. fire settled down into a good, 'juiet,
steady burn. It didn't crackle or sizz;
.e it just lay there and burned as an hon
. est, well regulated coal fire ought to
burn. The heat spread out by degrees alr
and radiated· around while the Fifth apj
t ward man began to dream hard. He alt
e tossed as though he had a nightmare, tihi
a and once in a while he would talk in x(i
2 his sleep and swear. Once he reached evw
- around with his hand and hit the leg of cal
