been much to his delight.

scarcely thought you equal to that, not

to stiy tho rigiit thing from two points

rather fix up everything else en tbo pa

besides, that tho writer will never for

"Oh, was thero any unpleasantness?"
asked Mr. Page hastily. 'Of courso wo
don't want anything of that kind. Au-
tnors aro very touehv and can make ;i
good deal of trouble sometimes."
Hugh's faco had fallen decidedly dur

ho stood a poor chance of advancement
if his chief know how very unsatisfac
tory to tho author his conclusion to tbo
story had been. But Miss Homers also
had caught the bint mid now tnrnrd n

cheerfully and walked away, leaving
