Hon. J. II. Courtney has returned
from the State Capitol the legislature
having taken a recess. Esq. Courtney
has proven himself an able and eilicieut
representative, and welligbyvillians are
quite proud of the prominence he lias
attained in legislative circles.
Mr. J. W. Faires, better known in the
?:reat "State of Lawrence" as the "pol
shed young gentleman," left Saturday
with a second drove of stock for Sum
mertown and other points in that sec
tion. Perhaps it will lie well for some
one to call the gentleman to a halt in
his mad attempt to transfer all of
Maury's thoroughbreds (?) to the black
jack region. We have'a faint idea that
the possibility of participating in an
other "bear hunt" was one of the allur
ing features of this second trip.

HmiiYViu.K, April 1.1. The recent
abatement in the rains, which, here as
elsewhere, have proven so destructive to
farming interests, greatly retarding
work of every description, seems to
have infused new life into the farmers,
whoso merry whistle nviy now be heard
in the land, and whose every energy is
being exerted as though endeavoring
to regain lost time. The wheat crop, of
which there is an abundance through
out the valley, is looking extremely
well, while the potato crop, as though
loath to follow suit, has fallen behind
in the main procession.
Those who embraced the opportunity
for gardening prior to the rains, will he
rewarded with early vegetables, as
very little damage was done in this re
spect. Sacramental services were observed

months. Although he suffered great

gave him grace to say, "Thy will,
Father, not mine, be done." He was a
man well known, and was loved and re
spected by all. He was a devout chris
tian and a member of the M. E. Church,
South. He professed religion in early
life, and ever afterward lived a true
christian. He leaves a wife and nine
children to mourn his departure. He
was perfectly ready and willing to die,
and told his relatives and friends to be
true and they would meet him in
heaven. He talked as calmly about
death as it he were simply going off on
a Journey. After arranging his bus!
ness affairs and telling his family how
he wished to be buried, even to seleet

The rosary at Gardenhurst was the
fairest spot in all that fair demesne.
Over arch and lattice nnd trollis the
heavy headed blooms rioted in a bewil
derment of pink and white, crimson and
cream, forming a glorious canopy above
tho severely trimmed rosebushes that
lowed like gigantic bouquets ou either
side of tho winding paths.
But Enid Fitz Roy saw neither the
flowers about her, nor the surrounding
woods, nor the clear summer sky above
all. Tall and slender, sho stood like a
statue among the roses, with the folds
of her muslin frock falling stniightly
about her, and her fair face somber and
troubled beneath the wide brim of her!
garden hat. She was a very pretty girl
and should have been a very h;;ppy one,
for happiness ought to be the natural
sequence of beauty and wealth.
The oval of her face, that should have
been wreathed in smiles, was pale and
drawn. The small, curved mouth was
pressed together in an effort to suppress
a childish desire to cry. Tho sweet eyes
were hidden by the white, lowered lids
in either sorrow or indifference, while
the full throated birds sang on and the
gay roses swung like perfumed censers
in the light air.
How could sho heed or care for birds
or flowers, when her whole heart was
away in the dim library of the old man
sion behind her, when her brain ached
in the effort to guess at the words and
gestures that were passing there among
the frowning family portraits and the
great oak bookcases, for at that moment
Dick Lindsay was telling his loves and
hopes to Lord Hunston, the stern man
whom fate had given her for an uncle
and a guardian. Enid's fond heart told
her what her lover would say, how hard
he would plead, how handsome he would
look, but her uncle? Would he relax,
would he permit himself to be moved,
would he consent? And in tho effort to
materialize tho faroff scene Enid grew
pale and trembled like a wind tossed
Hurried footsteps among the roses
roused her from her revrrio at last, and,
turning, sho saw her lover speeding to
"Dick!" sho cried in welcome, run
ning to him and with her set face break
ing into joyous smile d. Then a little
moan escaped her, and sho grew white
as her sown, for one glance nt Dick
Lindsay's eyes told her ho had failed.
"Darling, at first I hoped for sue
cess," said Dick when Enid had regain
ed some degree of self control and the
lovers had wandered from among the
jarring flare of the brilliant flower gar
den in the friendly shadows of tho wood.
Your uncle heard mo without inter
ruption and even smiled once or twice.
told him of my prospects, how tho
mortgage was nearly paid off tho Knoll,
nnd how I should bo able to live there
in another year. I referred him to Tape-
son and Jenkins that he might verify
my statement as to how well the farmg
were let. I proved to him that I was
financially in a position to aspire to
your hand, filled with fortune's gift as
And he said" murmured Enid,
lifting her tear washed eyes to Dick's
He said nothing. That was the
worst part of it, Enid. If he had only
advanced arguments, I might have de
feated them, if he had given an opinion
I might have challenged it. But he gave
me no loophole for speech. He unlocked
a small drawer in his bureau you
know the one that has carved goblins'
heads all over it; and pulled out from
amid a sheaf of papers one that was
folded twice and was tied with tape
I know I know; the copy of my
father's will," cried Enid, "made be
fore I was born."
"He opened the paper and pushed it
across the bureau to me, marking with
a nail dent the passage I should read."
"Oh, don't repeat it; don't say it!"
wailed tho girl, putting her hands over
her ears, as though to shut out hated
sounds. "Don't I know too well that my
marriage was fixed for me from the be
ginning, aud that my father, on his
deathbed, willed that if his only and
posthumous child should bo a daughter
she should, ou her twenty-first birthday,
bo affianced to the only son of his dear
est friend, Lord Ernngtou? Oh, it was
a cruel thing to do."
"Cruder still, my darling, to ordain
that if at tho date of your majority
Lionel Erriugton were alive and unmar
ried, aud you should refuse to become
his wife, you should be deprived of your
iuhcritauco for five years and Bhould
even not be allowed to live in your own
house. Those shameful paragraphs were
all my answer. Your uncle then bowed
me from the room, only sarcastically
begging my presence at your birthday
ball next week, during which he intends
to announce your engagement to young
A hot flush stained Enid's white skin
and dried tho tears on her cheeks as she
drew herself from Dick's encircling
arms and faced him in the narrow path
"Dick Lindsay, when, six months ago,
I gave you my heart aud my love,, I gave
them for all time, and not to take them
back at the written word or a man
whom I never knew, who was dead be
fore I lived. Ou my birthday I will, if
needs be, leave Gardenhurst and go out
into the world to earn my livelihood
until the time of mv probation is past.
But I say now, as I have said before, I
will marry no man but you if you will
have me, Dick."
Her voice, which had rung out so
bravely, quivered and broke, and she
put out two trembling hands to her lov
er and crept to bis heart like a tired
As he soothed her the distant roar of
a gong thrilled through the quiet woods.
"I must go," sighed the girl. "One
more week of this life, and then then
I shall be free! Ah, don't look at that,
Dick! I mean what I say. I shall be
ready to leave this place in a week."
"But, Enid, my love, where will you
go? That will become of you?"
She shook her blond head. "I don't
quite kuow. I must think."
Dick Lindsay fixed his dark eyes in
tently on her for a moment, as he
thought he would read her very soul.
"Dearest, is there uny one about you
M ho is trustworthy who will give you
a letter if I write one?"
"Susan Ranisdale, my maid, is hon
est and loves me. Send to me through
A moment later Enid's white gown
was fluttering over the lawns and ter
Miss Fitz Roy's majority was being
celebrated in a truly seigueurial fash
ion. From early morning the shows and
entertainments in the park had been pat
ronized by crowds of friends and ten
ants. The midday dinner, accompanied
by speeches and presentations, was a
huge success. In the afternoon the ter
races about the house blossomed like a
partvrre with tho light frocks of the
county," who eanio to witness a bi
cycling gymkhana, which at tho last
moment had been organized by the her-
roine of the day.
The racing was excellent, the prizes
charming, and all the company were bi
cycle mad, when a rumor ran round that
a paper chose, with the beautiful Miss
Fitz Roy as hare, would wind up tho
afternoon's proceedings. The idea was
received with delight, and Enid might
have had 500 hounds instead of 50 to
chase her had sho so willed. With pret
ty obstinacy, she persisted herself in
choosing the pack, and with infinite
taste shared the honors among her
friends and tenants alike. But at the
last moment she exercised her sex's pre
rogative and entertained a caprice. Sho
would have a companion hare, a mau,
and that her choice might not be invidi
ous she would draw the name of the
hare that was to be from among the
hounds that were. Pencils and paper
and a hat were instantly in demand.
"What freaks Enid has, to be sure!"
said Lady Hunston to her lord as plow
boys and gentlemen alike dropped the
folded papers in tho hat Enid held.
"Ic will bo Erriugton s business to
check them," growled his lordship.
'Which of the lads is that?" ho went
on as ,i redheaded yokel slouched past
Enid in the immediate wake of the at
tenuated and mincing Lionel.
"One of Wilson's new bauds, perhaps.
I heard he had several. Dear me, how
Enid docs overdo things, to bo sure!
She's as white as a ghost. She'll look a
And, indeed, as Miss Fitz Roy plunged
her hand into tho hat and drew out a
scrap of paper sho turned deathly pale
Scarcely glancing at it, she said in a
low voice, "Isaac Clay. "
"Isaac Clay! Who is he?" cried every
one. And then a nngury laugn rose
from the merry crowd, and even Enid's
white lips smiled as the awkward figure
of "Wilson's new hand pushed shyly
to the front.
"What a hare! He won't get to lodge
gates, laughed every one as the bag of
torn paper waa slung across the lad b
"Seven minutes' start!" cried Enid
as she sprang into the saddle and sped
round the angle of the house, with her
companion hare wobbling after her.
And in that time hounds were after
her, amid the cheers of the crowd and
sundry minor mishaps. At the lodge
gates Lionel Erriugton, in spite of the
white paper going both ways, turned
sharp to the left.
Miss Fitz Roy won t try Bluebell
hill, I know," he called to those behind
him, who were all game for a spin along
tho flat Clevely road. For some five
miles tho paper track wa3 clear, then
suddenly came to an end.
"It's a trap, of course," said Lionel,
who was too warm and was getting
cross. ' 'She'll start it again farther on. "
But "farther on" there was no wel

home houuds had to confess themselves
If Enid tried the hill at all, it must
have been to shake off that lout," said
Lionel sulkily, turning back.
'But how did the paper come on this
road, then?" cried Lady May Saville.
She was a pretty little girl, but Er
riugtou was in too bad a humor to an
