The time was morning, 'the screna ft farm-house kitchen; the actors, two . people, man and woman. The woman. Amy by name, waB small In stature, light in framo and quick in motion; her face was ivlain, its white, healthy color marred l-y freckles, Its mouth 'tever-generous. *Ier ?yeo, too, were large, with such honesty and sincerity In their depths of gray, they furnished the owner a certificate of character wherever ahe carvled them. She had come Into the kitchon. holding in one hand a cake, at which she glanced with something of th? same fondness which an artist showri for a mastorpiece. As she had entered the kitchen, she had stopped suddenly by the door, her large, bright eyes taking In quickly the details of the scene before her, while her face assumed an expression of such dismay, aa brought a broad smile upon her companion's merry faco. She hurriedly placed her CakO UDOn tha hrnnlr back at ber first glimpse of its greaso pots and kettle crock; her eyes roved to the floor and mopboard, where thoy seemed to transfix the dust with their steely glance. There was au unwashed frying-pan on the hearth. She looked at It with eyes of pity; then turned, with the badio expression, toward her companion. She made a quick, restlre motion with her hand. "Wouldn't you," she said, falteringly, "like to have me?have me eweop a little for you, now I'm hero? I like to sweep and clean, Just aa another woman like* to sing and play the piano." "No," he said, laughing; "I think It 1b enough for one woman to clean out the cracks In her own floor with a hair-pin. I couldn't think of consenting to such waste of strength In my behalf." She turned, with Just a touch of XRtlnn h?r /.>! nfll/ -p ?... "Good morning," ah? said abruptly, s she started acroaa the piazza toward her own home. She hurried on, as if some important duty waited her coming. As she clicked the latch of the gate, ahe turned toward the Xoub* which she had Juat left. He wan still standing there by door; his face, which had been but a minute before, mirth-Illumined, had become suddenly grare. She saw it, and its reflection fell upon her own. Yes, she knew it was lonely over there. She went on slowly Into the house. Tbo room which she entered partook of i her own character; It was small, dull in color, and spotlessly kept. Her mother, diminutive like herself, oat by the Are busily knitting, the linen of her withttrod, oharply-chlaedel face showing clear above the white kerohlef at her throat. She had the me gray eyos and the same grave earnestness. "Woll, what did he say to the cake. Amy?" asked the mother, looking over her spectacles at her daughter as she entered. "He said he was obliged," replied Amy, drawing a chair up to the Are. "You ought to see the kitchen," she went on; "dirt and dust in heaps everywhere. You can't hardly tee the table for tho grease and crock," looking plteously at her mother; "and all the rest la just &s bad. There is a frying-pan there that I shall remember as long as I live." "What can we do?" asked the moth *jr eurueauy, laying aside tier knitting, aa if that impeded th?. course of thought; "what's to bo doue?" "I don't know." said Amy, despairingly. "He wouldn't let me clean. I aaked him ajain." "I've thought sometimes," remarked the older woman, "that perhaps he don't like it?your not wanting to marry him; sort o' resents it, may* be." "There'd be no sense in that," said Amy, with a show of energy and surprise. "You might as well blaine me for liking pickles. My mind is set naturally on living single. I can't help it." "He hasn't asked you lately, has ne: nam tne mother, when they were launched safely on the steady stream of work. Amy shook her head. "Maybe he's getting tired of It," remarked the mother. "I don't know," said Amy, a little crossly. "He says he asks me once a year; but that's his way joking about things that are no joke. It's but a half dozen times." "It's too bad," said the mother, sum* ming up the situation; "but what's to be done?" That question presented itself often to the two women, aB they sat around their own well-kept hearth, and thought of the kitchen in the house opposite. From time to time Amy veaI turod over with a cake ana took not* of the increase of dup.t ."It's piling up on the mopboard," fhe said to her mother, who was ever an eager and sympathetic listener. "He scratches around with % broom sometimes; but he norer hit* 1 the mopboard." The frying-pan, too, appeared occ* tonally In Its unwaahM. unk???? Bu^uuiyi WIT dltlon; it had the forlorn air of on* Who had a?en better daya. The winter wore away at last. When the aprlng had fairly eotne, the mother gladly came out of her winter prison house, offered suggestions about tho sov : of soeds and tho preparation of soil. One morning, when John gone away, she and Amy with an of stealth such as would bo nat to a soldier roconnolterlng the one went noiselessly to their nelght house, crossed the piazza, and one long look at the begrimnied dust-weighted kitchen. A de? shade of gravity rested on the ni r*? face when she came away. 1 vr6re silent, returning, but aa sooi they reached their own home chattered like magpies over the tails of that unfortunate kitchen. "I wish," said the mother, pat lcally; "that I had never seen it. I shall carry the memory of It m me all my days." Yet tho place had a klndoffasci tlon. They stole over again and agi to get a glimpse of it. It was a fine moonlight winter e e lng. John and Amy had come h m from church together. She had i leaped a little beyond him. and had | one into her own littlo yard and cl >sed j the gate. How he hated the clic't of that gate! He was talking on, wifh i the manifest purpose of keeping her j there a minute. "Yes," he said, 'it's j been an open winter. I like s?.ow, , ui/ncii, piouty 01 it. ta iiKe 10 tunnel through tho drifts once id'ore. I'm growing old, I guess; noO.ing ems bo good as it used to, not even the snow; that'B colder and not so white. Everything Is different but you, Amy; you never change." "I think I grow old, too," said Amy. "No you don't; you're just the same girl you were 15 yearB ago. It takes something besides time to make peoplo grow old. I'm getting gray myself." He laughed without apparent cause and pushed away the snow with hlB foot. "Amy," he said, merrily, as If hefwas about to tell an amusing Btory, "I haven't bothered you wtth tnai old annual question of mine this I year, have I? I suppose it wouldn't bo of any use, anyhow, would it?" He was looking at her wistfully. ] They say that sometimes the mind I works rapidly in the emergencies of j life. There came to Amy a vision of that kitchen. A frying-pan, mute yet pleading, was on the hearth; a kettle, with rusty countenance, was asking for help; the dust on the mopboard flashed on her sight; Bhe felt that it was making an appoal. At that minute it was borne in upon her that she had been appointed to a mission; she was to be an apostle of cleansing to A ~ -i 1 ? iuai uc&icviuu uuuru. sne IOOKCU up, her eye? meeting bis fairly, without a "I Suppose It Wouldn't Be Any Use, Anyhow, Would It?" Bhadow of hesitation or doubt. "I don't know," she said, simply. "I think perhaps there might." "Are you sure?" he said. "I'?I'm afraid so," she faltered. Hp placed his hand upon the latch of the gate. She saw the motion and glanced quickly up at him, then turn- ( ed and ran swiftly into the house. John stood a minute as is ho were a little dazed b> the sudden coining of his happiness; then he went slowly across to his house. There was a i new light In his face, and a smilo ' on his Hps, and his home did not seem half so lonely, for ho could already | see, In fancy, a morsel of gray-gowned womanhood, flitting about. those rooms. ue sat till late that night, trying to realize his fortune, wondering how Amy had come to know her own heart, for he felt sure that, unawares, she had been fond of him all these years. He never knew how the dust on the mopboaid had pleaded his cause, nor how his kettle had been gifted with a more persuasive voice than his, nor felt for them the affection that otherwise he might have regarded as their duo. It was not many months before the dust tasted water; the frying-pan once more learned the use of scouring sand; the table was freed from Its burden of enrth, and the whole kitchen vai washed and rewashed, till it shone and shone again. The only hindrance to the good work was the frequent presenco of a mascullno giant, who picked up the small housewife, and held her up till her eyes were on a level with his own, "mussed" her hair, took, as he said, "the starchy look out ] of her mouth," ?"1 othorwlso cmrluptnd hlmanlf "1 ' i - - " ? 61COI '.O/.
