There w as IIO supply of eggnog and gin­
ger biead.no jumping of lire crackers,
and the shout of "('hris'iuus «if!" was
feeble and infreqin lit. Missy dispensed
a few pre.-ents urivate'yto such of tho
old familv negroes as remained in her
father'* service, as well as to HOIIH' few
d.-x-rters, who had taken advantage of
tint day 's holiday to visit Thorne I till.
The colonel shut himself up in his
ollice all the mornin », and Miss Klvira
and Winifred went alone to church.
John Fletcher remained in his own
room it was hi.s purinso remain

Winifred smil 'd. arid tiiey walked on

did not speak until they reached the

Uven while lie f'poke lie jii-i i i ed,
with a thrill of glad wonder, thai Wini
fred made a slight involuntary move
ment. as if she would draw nearer to
him, anil on the iiisiii.it lie was by her
side.
But she had not heard a uor.l lie paid.
She was gazing intenthy int the depths
of the plum thicket, witii panting breath
and ((uick beating Imnrt. "What is
that?" she ga-js-d, in a ti'irili.-d whisper,
and clutched the eaplain'ii arm.
"Do not be frightened." lie said, as he
laid his hand on hers, which was cold
and trembliic.:. "There is nothing h-re
to harm y oa
There! Do you not bee?'' she whi.s
pcied fearfully, "or ani going mail''
And wiili a stilled scream Winifred
Thorne hid her eyes against the Yankee
captain's arm.
i i s o n y a n o n e o e a n s w e e
as what hao m.-d a shadow i-pje'ged
from the thicket and assumed Ihr.te
-form.
"An old negro," Missy repeated, and
shivered from head to foot. "An- there,
indeed, such things as ghosts?" But she
did not look up until she heard tho old,
familiar greeting:
"Why, Missy! Missy! huh you do?"
The voice, the words, clcctrilied her.
Bhe abandoned fear she sprang forward
uhe seemed to fly to inert the apparition
coming along the grass
grown path, and.
stretching out her hands, she clasjied
them over old iilhert's toil hardened lin
gers. while her crutch fell forgotten on
the ground.
"At last! Oh, at last!"' ller voi.e
rang out Ufsin the twilight stillness, full
of an infillili. pathos of thankngiv ing.
Somehow, John Fletcher w as not as
pleased as lie should have been he felt
himself deserted. lie picked tip the
crutch and stoxl irresolute., loth to leav e,
yet uncertain whether it became hini to
stay.

strcugUieiis the scalp, promote* the growtli
ol ucw hair, reslori's tlie iiatiuai color to
gray and fa.l.nl hair, and leaders il sufl,
jiiiant, anil glossy.
We have no hesitation in pronouncing
Ayer's llalr Vigor uuequalecl for itti-sslug
Ul: hair, and wc do tlas after loiii experi
ence in its use. This preparation preserves
the hair, eures (laii.triilt ami all diseases of
tli..' scalp, makes rough ami brittle hair soft
and pliant, and prevents baldness. Willie it
is not a dye, those who have used the Vigor
say it will stimulate the roots and color
glands of faded, jrray, li ht, uad red iiair,
changing the color to
A Rich Brown
or even blaek. It will not soil tlie pillow
case nor a pocket-liandkerehi. f, and is al
ways apreealile. All the illrtv. gummy hair
preparations should he displaced at once by
Ay.-r's flair Vigor, and thousands who go
around with heads looking like 'the fretful
porcupine' should hurry to the nearest drug
store and purchase a bottle of the Vigor."—
The Sunny Smith. Atlanta, C,a.
"Ayer's Hair Vigor is excellent for tho
hair. It stimulates the growtli, cures bald
ness. restores the natural color, cleanses the
scalp, prevents dandruff, and Is a good dress
ing. We KIIOW that Ayer's Hair Vigor differs
from most hair tonics and similar prepara
tions, It being perfectly harmless." —From
