"Father, Bald Frank Notkins one
evening when the family were sitting
before a cheerful fire, you promised
me "when I became of age you would
tell me that story of your student life.
I'm twenty-one today."
"Well, Frank, I'll keep my promise.
When I was iu college I made the ac
quaintance of a girl we will call Nan

jealous, and I wouldn't like her to
know the girl's real name. Nancy and
I kept getting spoonier and spoonier,
and. her father getting on to the situ

that he had any objection to me except
that I wan only a college boy with two
years of study liefore me, Iesides a
course In :igricumre. to le taken aft
er graduation. As for Nancy, he pro
Ioxed that she should spend three or
four years more on her education." Per
haps if he had let us alone we might
have got over it in time without mak
ing ninnies of ourselves. As it was,
he drove us Into one of the silliest ier
fortnanees on record an elopement.
The time we chose for this absurdity
was iu midwinter. Just after one of the
heaviest snowstorms we had had In
years. Our plau was for me to pick
up Nancy on. the road, take her iu
my sleigh to the Junction, get spliced
there, drive her back and say nothing
a I mt the matter till we had finished
our education. Nancy wa nt the place
of rendezvous all done up iu furs and
with a pair tf cheeks which the frost
tinged with the hue of red apples.
She jumped Into the sleigh, I pulled
up tbe rolo. and we started.
"Nancy told ine that her father was
suspicious of her, and she thought he
had been watching her, so I had bet
ter drive pretty fast. This I did so
far as I could, but the road between
our college town and the junction is
hilly, and the snow was deep and nn
trodden with occasional bad drifts. So
our progress was necessarily slow
Nancy kept looking back uneasily, and
when we re-ached tbe top of n rise
about a mile from the town Nancy,
upon glancing to the rear, gave my
arm a grip, exclaiming:
"'Oh. my goodness gracious!
"Turning my head, I saw a sleigh
descending the next slope lcblnd us
drawn by two horses, who were gallop
ing through the snow, scattering it like
spray. Of course I knew we were fol
lowed, and, giving tbe horse a cut we
Btarted down our decline, scattering
snow in the same fashion. . But
knew that one horse was no match for
two horses with an equal loud, aud ft

"Lie low till he has passed, then
walk home. He hasn't seen who is in
this sleigh: the hack is too high, and
the robe Indilnd is above our heads.
"'All right.' said Nancy. 'This looks
like a good place we're coming to.
T pulled up leslde a drift more than
ten feet deep and, that I should not
show any tracks, took Nancy up and
tossed her feet foremost into it. Tbe
snow was light. She went down three
quarters of her length and wriggled
down the rst of the way. I drove on
and when I got to the top of the next
hill looked back. In a few minutes the
pursuing sleigh apieared. and I knew
I had not been seen dropping Nancy.
I kept up a good pace, hoping to draw
her father on so far that he wouldn't
run against her on tbe way back. I led
blinas far as the bridge, when I slowed
up and let him overtake me. When ha
saw no one In the sleigh he looked
somewhat mystified for a moment, then

about without a word and drove back
to town. It's four miles between the
town and tbe Junction, and since I bad
dropped Nancy a taile from the town" I
knew she would have plenty of time to
get back home. ......
"When I saw her again she told ma
that when her father came iu lie said
