perennial and everlasting, lint it

"Dumb! s"he is ('umb'.'" cried Mrs.
Hammond. I've talked and talked,
and the more I sa;- to her the less
she has to say, and the more blunders
she makes. She :a such a stupid
thing that I dec am I have no
patience with her.1"
"The week will bj gone before you

"The strangest part of it is that
Ina likes her. She follows her about
and chatters to her incessantlv.
Kate answers her .t is when I am
not in hearing.''
'.There is tome good in her if the
child likes her," said Mr. Hammond, '
nodding his head siigelv.
Little Ina certainly had taken an
unaccountable fancy to poor, plain,
awkward Kate. Even KM ear-old
Charlie secretly liked her, though he
took delight in teasing her and
watching the color come to her face.
If he had known how much he ad
ded to her unhappiness he would
have been more merciful, for he was
really a kind-hearted boy, only a
little thoughtless and mischievous.
Kate had gone out into the garden,
and while they wi re so freely dis
cussing her shortcomings around the
evening lamp she stood gazing at the
moon, which was just rising from
behind the hills.
'0h, I do wish I knew more!" she
soliloquized. "If Mrs. Hammond
wouldn't watch m- all the time and
look so cross when I do anything
wrong, I know 1 shouldn't make so
many mistakes. And Charlie tor
ments me so that I don't know what
I'm doing, liut Aunt Jane is so
cross that I dread to go home," and
the girl clasped heir hands over her
face and wept silertly.
"Kate," called Mrs. Hammond
from the door, "Kite, come in now;
Yes'm," respon led Kate, coming
out from among tli3 fragrant lilies.
The week wore along and Saturday
afternoon came. Nothing really very
serious had happered, but Kate had
made many blunders and Mrs. Ham
mond was tired an 1 discouraged.
"I can't keep you any longer,
Kate," said the good woman. "I wish
I could, hut it seeus to me that you
bother more than ;ou help. "
This was bud news for Kate but
not unexpected. SI e received her dis
missal in silence, t nd in silence re
paired to her litth; room to pack her
old carpet-bag. 'J his done, she went
out into the yard t.nd walked about,
inhaling the fragrance of the flowers
and whispering words of farewell.
Then she returned to the house and
asked Mrs. Hamn ond if she might
kiss Ina before she went.
"Why, she is i sleep," said Mrs.
Hammond. "Hut you must come over
and see her some day."
"Thank you, I will," said
turning to "-o.
"I pity Kate," remarked Mrs. Ham
mond, half to herself, and half to
Charlie, who was in the house, dis
consolate on aeco int of the death of
his pet crow.
"Why do you pity her?" aaked
"liecause her heme is so very un
pleasant. She has no mother to lovo
her, as you and Ina have, my dear."
Then why didn't you let her stay
"Well, because t was so hard to
teach her anything." said Mrs. Ham
mond, a little uneasily.
"Why, she's f.oig across tho
field!" exclaimed Charlie, as he stood
watching th departing form of the
girl. "There! she has started to
run. hew! she las gone over the
hill like a ihot."

the grass the torn old bag. which had
now certainly taken its last trip, for
the cars had gone over it.
"I don't remember much about it,
