'Aunt Deb," she gasped, "deta gU op ter do school Iiouho " "Look yer! I wants ter know w'at J on mean, bustln' inter de bouse dis way. You'se lackin' in repose ob man ners, you is, Chloe Ann!

Chloe Ann, pulling like a small steam tug, rolled up ber eyes despairingly and tumbled into a chair. "Co'se I'd oughtcr knowed you'd 'spine fer ter year 'bout dem Easter doin's," said she, slyly, as soon as she was seated, "but dey's gwine ter bo mighty cur'us." 'Wat dey gwine fer ter do up dar?" Inquired Aunt Deb, eagerly. Chloe grinned. "Dem gals," sho said, "dey gwine ter git up a show in de schoolhouse, an' dey gwino ter have aiga an' " "Aigs!" exclaimed Aunt Deb. "Aigs," repeated Chloo Ann, im pressively. -"An' nio'n dat, ley aint gwine ter have nothin' 'cep' igs. Dey kin make 'em as small us sparrers' aigs, or dey kin make 'era d, s as big as dey kin tote.

Here Chloe Ann paused an instant to give Aunt lVb time to take in the full import of this announcement Then she proceeded with her taie. "Hat gal wid the loiiir yuller curls she say ter nie, 'Nobtxly aint "spectin' you'll make nothin', Chloe Ann.' An' I say, 'Den I 'bleeged ter '(.prise 'em.'

"You'se boun' ter speckerlato fud der'n dat, chile," said Aunt Deb. "Dat aig's 'bleeged ter have nio'n insides. (Jo 'long an' do some o' yo' llourishin' roun' de wood pile.

"An atter all dis 'spoctin' an con tending " said Aunt Deb, def pondently, "we aint make out ter kiver dat aig! I k.n ax Miss Cole fer de ole boxes you'll git yo' pas'boa'd outen dem an' like 'nough she'll gimme de strong w'ito muslin. . Hut I dunno w'at you gwine ter do for de outside."

With this cheering assurance Chloe Ann jumped into bed, and was soon fast asleep. Aunt Deb spoke truly when she said that the girl was "clar grit" Until the last eighteen months of her life she had always been ill-fed and over worked. When she was 11 years old her sickly mother became a helpless invalid, and upon Chloe Ann were laid burdens fur too heavy for one so young. Many a time she lay awake all night with hunger that the mother might not suffer. Many a time she stood be tween her drunken father and her mother's bedside, warding off the blows intended for the sick woman, and receiving them at last upon her own shoulders. When the mother died, two years later, und her father declined to sup port her, Chloe Ann begged and worked her way from (ieorgia to a small town in Pennsylvania where Aunt Deb lived. Her aunt had sent money to pay tlio cost of the journey, but the father had discovered it and gained possession of it The poor child could neither rend nor write when she entered the village school; but being "clar grit" she ignored the ridicule of the little chil dren with whom sho was obliged to re cite, and worked with all her might to make up for lost time. Mis. Dodd, a wealthy and benevo lent wonittu, was at this time greatly interested in raising funds for tlte or phan asylum which she hud been the means of starting in the.vllluge. She conceived the idea of interesting the schoolgirls in the enterprise, and pro posed that they should have an exhi bition of Kaster eggs of their own in vention. She would give a prine of flu for the most singular and unusual production. I en cents uuiiukmoii feu niuitud bit asked at tho door. The ladies should provide refreshments, and after the committee hud decided on the "most original egg" there should be a grand sale of the eggs for the benefit of the a v turn. The teacher permitted the girls to interest them el vex in deserving a muse, and presently the whole village leeame very much Interested in the exhibition."

"Come in de udder room," she said in a hoarse whisper, and Aunt Deb went into the other room without a moment's delay. When the two emerged from the little bedroom, they quivered with the awful ness of the secret in their pos session. " 'Spec' you got to sew de f us' lot ter de clof," said Aunt Deb. "Atter dat dey'll stick fas' 'nongh." "You'se sho' you kin make dat ar?" inquired the girl, rather anxiously. "Aint I use ter make balls fer Marse Ellis's chillun, long 'fo' you was borned? Does you 'mngine dat dem days an' dem doin's done drap outen my min'? Uless gracious! 1 kin tell dem d'rections wud fer wud, an' I kin spangle um, too. Hut yo'se got to do some 'sper'mentin', Chloe Ann, kase you aint had no 'sper'unce wid sech doin's. I'se mighty glad dere aint no school dis week." Chloe Ann's delight knew no bounds. She danced and capered about the ! TI TnE KOfl TTIAT TOOK THR TRIZE. room until Aunt Deb vas thoroughly out of patience. The eventful day dawned at last, but it seemed to Chloe Ann the longest day of her life. She was dressed for the evening long before the time, and as soon as the clock struck seven sho run to the schoolhouso. When she opened the door she was dazzled with the sight The boys had trimmed the large room most taste fully with evergreens, and had ar ranged flags and other draperies with charming effect The Kaster eggs were displayed on tables near the wall. There were emerys, almost "as small as sparrers' aigs," with a rosette and loop of very narrow ribbon at each largo end; eggs of dainty satin, filled with tempting candies; eggs covered with swun's dowo, containing bottles of perfumery, or waiting to receive a lady's jewels; and eggs resplendent in blue and red velvet or plush, large enough to hold comfortably the elegant dolls that lay within. Chloo Ann drew a long breath. "I.an' o' glory!" she vc tainted at last "Ik'y'a hau'xome! Cose 'twu all mighty foolish ter make eale'lations on dat ar ten dollar. Hut sukes 'live! I uint gw ine ter boddcr 'hotit dat.

"Well, it's very strange if a girl t4 years old can't be trusted to carry a parcel:" said Mrs. Dodd, impatiently. Just as the committee who were to a ward jt he prize were about to with draw for their conference, Chloe Ann opened the outside door and thrust a very anxious face out into the dark ness. "Here I is!" panted Aunt Deb. "An you kin praise yo' sta's dat I'se come. I aint never on'ertuk no sech skittish job as disafo'. An' you aint never ye re no sech racket as come fum de inside o' dish yer aig! I clar ter good ness! 'Twas wuss'n totin' a clock! An' I'se 'mos' 'feard some er dem kun nels dun drap off in de road." "Here, Judge Carleton!" said Mrs, Dodd, taking the huge bundle from Annt Deb's reluctant arms, and giving it to a gentleman standing near her. "It is so late that you will have to cxhit this egg from the plat form." . Judge Carleton proceeded to the platform, closely pursued by Aunt Deb, who removed the wrapping of tissue paper as he mounted the steps. "Hullo!" shouted a small boy. "A pop-corn egg!" A pop-corn egg sure enough, and shining and sparkling as if Jack Frost had breathed upon it! A murmur of surprise and admiration ran through the room. "Look out dar, Marse Carleton!" cried Aunt Deb, excitedly. "You'se gwine ter keel hit over. Keen hit de leetlo end up, sho'l" a Mrs. Dodd stepped upon the platform and assisted Judge Carleton to raise the upper half of the great egg. When Ulack June, Aunt Deb's favor ite hen, was disclosed, sitting on a nest of white cotton-batting, every body began to clup. Then a dozen fluffy little black heads thrust them selves out from under the wings of the old hen, und the applause became deafening. At this all the little black heads disappeared, and everybody laughed. Of course Chloe Ann's egg took the prize. The committee were not ab sent from the room more than live minutes; and as soon as ,the sale be gan, Mrs. Dodd was sorely perplexed, for it seemed as if every one wanted to buy Chloe Ann's egg. What a jolly time they all had! How the people laughed and cheered when excited in dividuals bid against themselves! At last "dat 'riginal aig" was knocked off at $15 to old Mr. Clapham, who had been very much opposed to the asylum. "Chloe Ann, how did you ever hap pen to think of putting that brood of chickens into your egg?" inquired one of the ladies. "Law!" said Chloe, "I allers 'bserved dat chick'ns was a natchul ting to be inside o' aigs!" There was a great shout then. Chloe Ann laughed louder than any one else. Judge Carleton patted the woolly head approvingly. "Chloe Ann," said Aunt Deb, as they were walking rapturously home in the moonlight, "you'se de outdoin'est gal in dat ar schoolhouse! I's proud on you, honey, I cert'nly is," "Law!" exclaimed Chloe Ann with a little tremble in her voico. "Ain't I done tole you I'se never lef behime?" Sitsan Curtis Rhpf-hcld. A Surprlie. Stanley Obcr stood at the window looking across the meadow at the small evergreens that skirted the wood beyond, and wishing it were Christ mas time again for the tree had been such a delight; but it was nearly Easter, and there would bo Easter eggs and Easter cards, and a small party, when all the cousins w ould bo there. "Mamma!" he cried, suddenly. "Well?" asked mamma. Stanley went nearer, and talked earnestly for several minutes; then mamma's face wore a smile, and Stan ley was beaming and mysterious. -A.
