with a cigar and nowspapoiy recoived

For two years they lived and fought
(md no ono could bring about poaco bo

bors all sahl, for Miss Briggs was a
dear llttlo soul and thero was not a
hotter man in tho .country than Air.
"Julia, my love," said Mrs. Perkins
ono aftornoon, as sho entered tho cozy

I want you to como down in tho after

"Thou that settles tho matter. I

Miss Briggs thought tho matter over.

and she would not havo him think so

was always a puzzlo to every ono why

Sho stood boforo tho looking-glass in
tho chamber and fastened ber lace col

plain gold brooch, and began to think
that sho looked very woll. Thoro was
iv bright, healthy flush upon hor cheek,
and her eyes woro full of light and

At tho end of tho evening Miss Briggs
was at tho door ready to depart, when
lie called: ,
"Miss Briggs, I am going right up

Would sho lido behind that old horso
and besido that dotestiblo man? Sho
was wondering whclhor sho would or
not whon Mrs. Perkins carno and tri
ll m phau t'y led her out and packed her
into tho carriage.
It was as dark as pitch and thoy had
to let tho horso go his own way and
And it tho best ho could. Ile did so
very well until they roached the cottage,
and then ho was bewildered.
Mr, Perry spoke, jerked tho reins,
but to no pulposo.- Ho thou took out
tho whip. Whether his natural dislike
to that article or the memory of the in
dignities ho hud suffered from tho hands
of tho owner of the cottago overeamo

events he kicked up lils hCols, ran a
few 'yards and fell, overturning tho
buggy and its contents.
Miss Briggs was up in a moment, un
harmed, but Mr. Perry was silent as
tho grave. Sho ran shouting through
the darkness until Mr. Perry's "help"
carno with a lantern to her assistance.
They found tho poor man half dead
boneath tho carriage, and while Han
was at work Miss Briggs ran home for
her own servant. Alter much hard
labor they succeeded in extricating him
from tho wreck, but bo was senseless
and they bore him homo and sent for

found his leg lo bo broken, and thus

Miss Briggs never left him. Hay and

Thero was a wedding in tho church a

How GIRLS MAT BUILD A

most girls can drive in light soantllng

For grown-up chickens fourteen laths

bo four feet squaro. Tho length of a
common building lath is four foot, and
ono's calculations for fonces of this
kind must bo based upon that. Tho

about one hundred laths, and will make
