.She had to do all the talking.
'Why are you silent RoberlV' she
asked. 'You look as solemn as a
dust as he had nerved himself to
give utterance to his thoughts, Dr.
Cole came in. He could not sit there
and hear the Doctor converse so
pleasantly with Pansie, so he took
J his leave.
The Misses Barnard noticed the
Doctor's visit. 'What docs he mean
by going there so often?' they asked
'Pansie is a sweet gal, am. a smart
one,' she replied, 'and I suppose he
is pleased with her company. One

all accidental, and now he goes there
of his own free will.'
After the autumn leaves had been
pressed, they were to he made into a j

Pansie in arranging them, when
Robert entered the room.
'See how beautifully the Doctor
has arranged these leaves,' she said

the same,' said Robert.
'Here arc a plenty of leaves, will

'No. If I should try to make one,
I do not think it would please you.'
Pansie found herself thinking
very often of Dr. Simpson's assistant.

had learned to know his step, when
he came on the porch.

not scare him. He is willing to do
his best for you, but then you must
not expect too much of him. lie

your En Held with a few Latin phrases
lias wrought such a wonderful im
provement in her'crack' that every
other gun 'sounds dead.' Picket
could select from his scanty library
a few interlinear classic volumes
and get enough of such prepared and
ready-made Latin to fill his Win
chester to the muv.zh?but he likes
to ?peak in a familiar tongue, so
that he who runs may read and
con prebend. 'Yidette' it appears
from his own evidence, was in his

there, hut he must have strayed .'i

shaft or he would not now. with such
knightly gallantry have assumed the

others were having a little skirmish
of their own w hen he steps in and
takes the whole thing upon himself.
This remind:; nie of an incident id'
Illy childhood, of which, be,
'Yidette' has heard. One pleasant
day Picket and one of his younger
brothers were amusing themselves
striking with hammers upon a
plough mould, imitating in our
youthful fancy, tin sound made by
our father's blacksmith and his as
sistant. when at labor at the anvil
Another hrother was sitting near us,
who had no hammer, but w ho was
determined to have a hand in the
play, and so steps up and places his
finger under the descending hammer
to represent the iron. The conse
quences were a crushed and bleeding
linger, and a painful reminder not to
do so again, ft is needless to say
that.the strikers were not hurt in the
least. This is a true incident. 'Yi
dette' may perceive themoral. If
he would like lo see that disfigured
linger, Picket can show it to him
even unto this day upon that brother
er's hand. Whether or not he has
profited by that painful lesson so
forcibly impressed, I leave him to
say. Ih certainly owjhl not to be
ollieiotis. 'Yidette' certainly is?and
so let him take this little anecdote
and study well I he moral intended, if
not very i'In rely brought out. It can
do him no possible barm. It may
It is hoped that the sound of thai
hist 'telling shot' has not passed en
li rely from the memory of the public,
as I now propose noticing some of
the feature-* w hich characterize it as
"In the first place. Picket had no
right to choose a place.'
Why not ? When a line of pickets
is established, a humane ollicer will
instruct his soldiers to take advantage
of all natural cover and w hen none
tillers to construct artificial cover.
His first care is the preservation of
life, as far as the exiguenccs of I he
service will permit. He does not
place a soldier liken post, in u parti
cular spot, or even circumscribe his
limits to a few feet or even yards.
Measurably then, ho lias the right of
choice ot'jtloce?not ofpositiou-?a tut
that choice L*ickol saw lit to exorcise
in that measure. Any veteran won hi

by so strong an impulse that they

and may again. Just here his pro
