onacfrtain Katunlay eei;in; nt the tar
; ern. where iu the bright, rresh parlor
Landlord Gn-ijsnn, Farmer Wylie ami Mil
i lr I?rnlison are sitting around a table, each
j with a goodly pile of money before hhn.
Mary Gregson and Ellen Wylio, old John's
blooming cUttipliter, are leatung from a
front window in earnest conversation. In
which color, pattern and sty lc are the chief
j factors. i
"Come here, you Kirls," ca.Ied Gregson. I
"count these three piles over and Bee what
you make of tliem."
The git-ls came gravely at d did as they 1
were bid. j
There Ts just $3,333 .33 in ea Oi pile," they t
Then Landlord Greg-ou l ushed a pile '
i.ver toward each of his iinihbors and
pulled one toward himne'.f, at the same
time telling Mary to bid tie man at the
Tmv to hrins some mint julip for this was
in the bright days of theearlj suinmer, and ;
the men were dividing the result of a joint
speculation, which hud turned out most ,
successfully, and they were happy exceed- I
lnIy. Mary brought the ;uleps and set j
1 tnein on tneiauii. lueii suetaiii uernm
toroiinjier on a twenty ttoUar note on the
top of her father's pile, an I at the same
time with her left arm be raised up her
father's face and kissed him. When he
looked down attain the n te was ffone.
Then Kilen Wylie came tpiit tly behind her
father and did the same t.bii fr.
"Well, Moli!" exrlaimed tsitm Gregson,
j "Well, Xirli:" observed ol I John Wylie.,
j and he chuckled.
I "liil Gov!" remarked Tom llrabson,
j adiiiiitr: "If only I hud a Jarter to come
ahind me and do t hat she 1 liyht just crab
the whole pile and IM nevt r wink. Here.
K;:K is a ten apiece for vol, jest to kinder
'make thinir-: t veil like," Mi.l he laid tin?
I.iils out on each side of lim. The two
' :irls looked at each ot her, s nile.l, and t hen
each came behind him, drew his head back
! and kissed him. When 1 e looked down
' ai;iun the two bills were tro io. "Hi! Goy!"
chuckled old H'abson, 'I'm one ahead of
' you fellows. I'm one kiss tihc:nl, and I
won't wash my face for a .veck for fear of
! t-ikinii away the taste."
I The.11 liiei.u bade his d; ntrhter tjike his
; money and put it iu the safe iu his bed
room, while Wylie and Halisou put theirs
in their pockets and wali.ed away hoina

j On Sunday afternoon when John Wylie
1 bruuiiht Lis wife home f -oni cliurcu, hi3
' put on a jiairof overalls an lau old warmm
t.f worsted to protect his Sunday clothes,
and pottered about atuun i his .stock and
outbuiiiiiiiL'S uutil dark. Theu bo rend it
chapter in t'. UibJe and il e markets iu the
country paper to bis wife, until ihe .suured
L'etiLly mid peacefully. Theu he put on his
hiit ami wa.ked, lirst up stairs and tueu
out ol du...rs.
.M,-s. Wylio awbke, ini scd l.'uu. found
he had not one to bed, concluded he would
be buck iu a little while, fastened up all
except the front door and tvtui to bed.
On Monday ujuruiui; she awoke just
when Mary GrevcsuD aud Joe Lutton wera
w..nderim; tit the smoke above tii Litili
woods. Mr. Wylbf was 01 t iu his bed; had
not betu in it all niirhl. and Mrs. Wvlia
v. ouih red with uawniiiit iri.viety wbnre he
was. She went to the dt sk w here be kept
l.;s money, y nil u here h( buj placed tliu
tnnds !n? had brought i oiue on Saturday
liiiTht. 'lie: money was n.jt there. Jier
anxiety in. ri-sed and s 10 called up tho
household aud seuL out f.'rthe farm Lauds,
who at once l.e'aa a sear .h for Mr. Wylie.
She sent a farm boy po-;t ha.stc after Mr.
Gregson and Mr. L'.rabon, as friends of
the family, to advise her what to do. They
came with all due haste, followed by Mary,
H'.len and a fuli half of the people of the
tjreir.son and llrabson looked through
the bouse, examined the bedroom aud iu-
1 speetud the ile.sk. Theu they searched the
barn and ail the outbuildings. Having
done this, the' sat dowi. ou the porch aud
indulged iu silent thought for half an
liolir. as t.hev whiltlirl n -isTitl v lit k crinrilr
of hbintrles picked up beside the carriage
house, x lieu urejsou 1 joKod at Ifrabson
and suid solemnly:
"I think that is about the size of it."
"There is uot the least doubt about it, to
my thinkiuic," responded Brabson.
Tin) two dozen curious men and women
standi ns and sitting auout the yard were i
electriQed, sayitit; cue to another:
"That is just what I t houtrht all along!"
Mary Gregson was tl e only one who did
not seem to understand the conclusion she
arrived at, and she bra' ely said:
"Father, what have you found out?"
"Nothing," he replied.
"That's my view," added Brabsou, and
the populace murmured:
"What did I tell you "
"I 'spose," remarked Mr. Urabson grave
ly, "we'd better be letting the water out, en I
the dam." I
"You're just right, T mi," responded Mr.
Gregson with alacrity. "Ijet's see to it."
It is a well known fa. t that in all cases
or emergency in rural communities oue of
the first things to be done is to lot the
water out of the milldnm. If there is no
milldain handy, the nearest stream Is
dragged with the least possible delay. If
nothing is found the satisfaction is reached
of knowing that there is nothing there
which has upon the excited state of feeling
much the same soothi'iij effect as phlebot
omy has upon the feverish patient.
The dnm was duly li t "out" and the re
sult was a fine messoi fresh fish for all who
cared to carry them away, but noluiug
more, aud the sun went down upon a sor
rowing household aud a sympathizing,
On Tuesday tjmp ithy, curiosity and a
desire to help again drew people ta the
Wylie farmstead, and among them came
Joe Luttun, who cou'd do no more work
until the riiillclain (ill -d up.
"Which I'm goiu to see what that fire
meant over inter the high woods yesterday
"Iliil rnn e it -Tn. ." nL-oil Murr P.ri.(,
ton from the porch.
j "Which 1 didn't jest see the fire, Miss
' Mary, but I seed the smoke."
i "So Aid I," said Mi ry. "Do go and try
; to find out what it r.ie.-uit."
i The crowd strean ed away after Joe to
t.he high woods. In an hour they came
hack, Joe holding u- about six inches of
one leg of the blue Criiliug overalls which
the missing man had worn, and which was
identified by Mrs. Wylio in tearful silence.
Hi! Goy!" ejaculated Mr. Brabson.
Both men lid f r mi their seats on the
' fdge of the porch and went, behind the
, woodshed to compa -e notes. Directly they
put their heads ou , and called for Mary
'and Joe, who came nii'l told the story of
the man that Mary saw and Joy met. Joe
described the man is about twetity-five, a
' well kept and decent looking ma-u, with
(lark hair and eye-;, and wearing a very
lotif- black coat. This was all elinittnl
through questions put by Mary, Joe sum
ming up with:
voicq i micks to it, oe was me same
lHn aiis .Mary seed, clothes and all r
laen Unison anil irabpon came back
the porch, and the former, fctauding
acainst a post, said gravely:
j "I b'pose we miuht as well tell them?"
I "That's my view of it. Can't keep it
l back no longer."
"Folks," saiil Sam Gregson, with sor
rowful gravity, "this is a bad streak of
business. Johu Wylie has unaccountably
dropped out, and we ain't no ways certain
what's come to him. To our thlukia,
iuouku, l lle U)lng 13 JUS uere. tomeoody
knew he had that money. He must have
went out while Mrs. Wylie was asleep.
Then he was kuoeketl In the head and the
murderers slipped into the house and got
he money. 1 hen they carried the body
off to the woods and burned it, this little
scriuiption of drillin being all that is left
of poor John Wylie. But we've Rot the
man that did it!"
"Where? Where." cried the crowd,
looking around excitedly.
"That is to say," continued Gresrson,
"we haven't just got bitu yet, but wo know
who he is."
"Who is be? Who is be?" cried the pop
uLaee. "Why, of course he's the niau that Mary
saw and Joe met," replied Mr. Gregson
with conviction, and Mr. lirabsou re
marked: "Hi! Goy! Of course!"
"Now," said Mr. Gregsou, "the next
thing we've got to Lave is an inquest."
"Certain," said Mr. Urabson. "Joe,
you'll have to .iro for 'Sxjuire Spear aud tell
Lim to brini his iuijuest tools along."
"Which 1 don't pretend to know much
about it, like you folks," said Joe doubt
fully, 'but, it iins to me the 'squire '11
want the body afore he can hold much of
Maty Givoon laughed, and forsome rea
son Joe felt idiotically happy in the belief
she had lauzlied at bini.
"Which I'd likewise iike to remark that
1 I don't see how the man that Mar-saw
! and 1 met could a-had much to do with the
buruin of Mr. Wylie when the lire was e'en
about out afore he frot anywhere near it."
' "Hi! Goyl" shouted Mr. Brabson, "you're
my bound boy, and you're not outer yonr
time yet for nii;!i unto two months, so you
i jest make up your taiud you don't know
1 uothin till you're your owu man. You
jest tret after the squire and tell him to
: brimr the best inquest he's irot iu stock."
1 "Which I'd like to ask, hadn't 1 better
tell l.i 111 to brin;4 alon a corpse, seeiu as
1 we're shoi t'f"
I "Hi! Goyl Joe Lutton, maybe you've
forgot the lickiti I sive you about 'leven
year ao," snorted Urabson.
1 "Which I dou't je.st call it to mind now,"
replied Joe demurely, aud uaiu Mary
Gre-rson laughed a silvery little ripple that
made Joe feel as though a little stream of
warm jov, sweetened w ith hope, wis bein
! poured down his back.
"Weil, we may as well get to business,"
: said Mr. Gre,-o!i LrL-kiy. "Joe, you e;o to
uiy place aud loll Dau WaJtou to Lilcu
walleyed I'.oLi to the buiry for you, and
see that you cx t Sq;iire Spear here early
j tomorrow morning."
I "Father, I must p home and look to
; thoJiouse. Joe will walk over with me;
j wou't you, Joe?" said Mary Grecrsou, aud
the smiled npnu Joe in away that made
Liiu feel ilr.7.y, but be managed to blurt
; "Wi-ich I to be certainly will."
I "All riht," said Gregson, aud Joe and
I Mary marched oil dowu the lane, while
, the crowd staid um.il dark discussing the
j Now, it is only a short three-fourths of
: a mile from Wy lie's K -e to the running
pump; yet it took those two young people
two loutr. bouts to walk the distance, and
yet, as loujr. as they were in sinht of any
i cue they were walking as though bijj
, money was bet ou them, and Joe only Kot
, away w ith the buy when Mary ex
i "Merey on us, .Joe, you mast go, or fa
ther and ail the rest of tiiein will come
aud catch us here."
j As they walked home through the galb-
1 erin-; dusk Gregson snil to Brabsou:
"Tom, it.VLind of liorne in on me that
that there Joe Iutton of your'n has Rot
wore boss sense than we've been giving
him allowance for.
"Hi! Goy! Don'tlkuow it! But it'll
never do to let him know it uutil he is out
of bis time."
The next mornim; the w hole neighbor
hoc-d was on hand at the WylieV place, for
I it became known that S.-juire Spear was to
be there, aud great things were expected
I The squire appeared about 8 o'clock, and
the first thing he did was to ernpauel a
jury, and then he said:
I "Xow, gentlemen, we will view the
1 Brabson and Gregson looked at each
' other blankly. Joe Luttou grinued, Mary
! Gregson laughed outright and Jo? whis
! pared in her ear:
"Which I told you so."
These explanations ha l be entered
, into and t he story was told the squire, of
I the man that Mary saw aud Joe met. The
squire laughed and told them that be knew
the man well, lie was a young priest of
Flemiugtou, who was in the habit of tak
' iug long walks in the country. While
they were talking a rough, unkempt mau
, came and leaned over the gale. Directly it
I was w hispered that he wore John Wylie's
overalls aud wurmtis. The squire called
him and questioned him. lie admitted be
j was a tramp, but didn't know whose duds
' he had on. He never impiired into those
j little matters. He found the things lying
I on the fence yonder last Mouday morning,
! and while he was cooking his breakfant
1 over there iu the woods be bad cut the legs
j off because they were too long. He reck
1 oued the other piece of leg was over there
The crowd was so busy around the tramp
out in the yard that they fail ml to notice a
tired and dusty looking man who satdown
ou the porch, until he called out:
"Hallo, there! What have you gotf"
"Hi! Gvy ! If it aia't Johu Wylie!" cried
Mr. Brabson. "Where iu sufferin sin have
"I've been minding my own business.
What have you folks been doing. Squire,
"Wrhicu I reckon the inquest can go on
now, seein as we've got the body," re
marked Joe Luttou cheerfully.
1 All that John Wylie ever condescended
j to explain was that he had been away on a
little business and took bis money with
Mr. Gregson and Mr. Brabson registered
a vow that the next time John Wylie
wanted to mind his own business he should
have the privilege of doing it to bis heart's
When, six months afterward, Joe Lutton
was "out of his time," and the little com
munity bad been socially shocked by the
announcement of his engagement to Mary
Gregson, with t lie full indorsement of her
father, Klleu Wyiie said to the prospect! vc
"Oh. Mary, bow could you take up with

Can be sold by a discarded lover
For a miserable thirty simoleons.
