Y FRED JACKSON. Bllly'a heart throbbed painfully at lie raised his voice with hers. To Ua Inglng with her. To be alnglng with her. He bent low over his book In the corner lest the other boya see how his face flushed; he waa aensl live about showing hla emotions Billy. Hla wonderfully sweet tenor, still unformed, of course, but so true, rang out clearly with her trained so prano. 8h stood up at the choir loft to sing, but be sat always behind the curtain, he looked so very little beside her, you see, for he was only eleven. When the duet waa finished, a sigh passed from many lips. She never got applause, of course she sang church music but she saw the wrapt expression on the faces below her, and heard the sigh; that was enough, that was very much Indeed. Hilly saw not even this; he saw the glow In her eyes, though, as she took her seat, and that was enough for him, for nilly was in love. Thank you, dear," ahe wbUpered softly across to him. "You muke It so euty for me when you sing like that." A light flashed suddenly Into the boy'a eyes, his cheeks went very pink, and she wondered that ao meager and thlu a little fuce could become so beautiful at times. Billy bowed his head In hla arms and whis pered the words over and over to himself. They were a wondrous re ward for his love, those words, for the first love of hi pure little heart the uuquestlonlng. confident, trust ing love that asks no return, only to worship from afar. His little love story had been most simple. He saw her and loved her. Sometimes she smiled at him, and that day was glorious to Billy; It be came a jewel In his memory box. Sometimes she looked sad, or did not recognlxe him; that day was dark so very, very gloomy; the sunshine wasn't bright at all. Bllly'a life wasn't happy. How the tiny aesthetic came to be In his fam ily Is a mystery. They didn't know what beauty love Is, bis people, they couldn't understand a boy that pre ferred to reud, or sing, or sit and dream instead of playing baseball and hockey like the others; they. were in clined to feel a bit ashamed of Billy. But he sat apart unmindful, creating himself a dream world, building up new Illusions as fast as the old ones went; he was an Idealist. Then she came into his life, forming the basis to build dreams on. making It quite easy for him to be happy. She never quite realised what her smiles were to that little starved heart, what her wistful eyes and frowns cost him; thus it Is In this world, ever. So Billy loved and dreamed in peace. nilly sat on the carriage step In the mooullght, his elbow on his knee, his chin In his hand. Opposite him back from the road a bit was a house her house. There was a light soinewheres upstairs, maybe In her room "I beg your pordon, said a grave voice suddenly, "are you sick?" A man was standing by Hilly, a big man; very tall and most broad. Hilly didn't like men. 'No." he said, "I'm not sick." With the last word came an odd little sigh. "Live here?" asked the man, Indi cating the house. "No," said Billy. "Near here?" "No." "Very far away?" persisted the man. "No." "Whire do vou live?" The man was tannin the stone with his stick and gazing at Billy with, interest Billy looked up and met a friendly compan ionable smile in the blue eyea fixed on him. It was his kind the man as akin. "Off there," said Billy, "on Decker street. You don't know It." "Oh." an Id the man. He didn't go. he just stood tapping his stick, tap pingtapping.' Billy looked up Im patiently. "I don't like baseball," he said In the queer squeeky voice he some times had, "nor football, nor hockey. I don't like any boys' games. I'm I'm a sissy.-" He waited for the man to go, but the fellow gave an odd lit tle gasp and sat down beside him on the atone. Billy's eyes widened In surprise and his heart leaped. It was rather ulce to have the fellow not go. Perhaps all men weren't alike. "As man to man" said the chap gravely, "what are you doing here? Perhaps-1 can. help a bit." "Just thinking making pictures. There's a girl In there. I slag with her in the choir." "Oho." said the man, "in love." "No." aald Billy, "I Just care for her. It Isn't love I Just care." "Let's serenade her?" said the man. "Perhaps she'll come out If ahe likes the music." . She did come out, before the song was half done. Billy sat between her and the man on the side steps eat ing cherries and cookies, gathering thinga for hla dreams, and laying up sunshine for the days that might hold none. Hla little heart was like to burst with happiness. . Many days passed, after that, and good times came for Billy. Every Friday, when the man came to town for the week end, he took Billy and the girl off with him for good times la the woods,, or oa the river, or rid ing perhaps. He had a hoard of tales, Always,- and could make one's elliten telling of elves, and Brlueeues and brays princes who loved them. The weeks were spent waiting In patient expectation while the man waa In another stats where he lived. Only at the week's end -would ha cxuuftJUfiJind. . . One night they were out on the lawn aVker house. Billy, had .risen to aay good night, for It was getting late and they ' would be expecting hlnv at home. "Walt," aald 4be girl softly resting her arm on his shoulder, "wait. Billy, and we'll walk to the gate with you." They went on lu silence, then, over the grass to the Iron gate, and the carriage step beyond. . "Billy, dear," ahe said softly, dropping on her knees In the grass, and looking Into his eyes, "Billy, do you like me?" The mun was stand ing behind her waiting eagerly for tne answer, niny raiseo ma mm ex pressive face to her's swiftly. "I love you," he said tremulously, "I love you." Ills large eyes were glowing, his lips squlver. "Billy," said the girl then, her cheeks flushed, "do you want me to be happy? Would you like me to be happy f Billy nodded. It was enough. "Billy," said the girl now, "It would make me very happy to be married, honey, to him to our man." She took the fellow's hand at this, and raised her great brown eyes to Bllly'a. "Of course." said Billy, "marry him be married." He smiled at her, an odd little smile that was very hard to get, but sho didn't see how odd It was she was in love. The boy swung his feet hard and swallowed. I'm happy," said the girl softly kneeling down nnd taking his head In her arms; "I'm so very, very happy." "If you're happy." suld Billy, "why I am." She raised his fuce and kissed his lips lightly then they were both gone. Billy's worshipping eyes fol lowing her to the InHt. He sat down quite slowly on the carriage step, dropped his chin In bis hands In the old way. and with wet eyes, but the memory or the kiss still In his heart, fuced the days without sunshine the days without even dreams. (Copyright, !!!. by Dolly Story Pub. ro. GETTING EVEN WITH LAWYERS. Where the Overshrewd Have Fallen Into Trapa of Their Own Making. Overshrewd lawyers often furnish their adversaries with weapons. "Did you see this tree that has been men tioned by the roadMlde?" an udvocate inquired. "Yes, sir. I suw It very plainly." "It was conspicuous, then?" The witness Beeined puzzled by the new word. He reteated his former assertion. "What's the difference," sneered the lawyer, "between plain and conspicu ous?" But he was hoist with his own petard. The witness Innwently an swered: "I can see you plainly, sir,' among the other lawyers, though you arc not a bit conspicuous." In another witness a blow directed against the character of a witness forcibly recoiled. "You were in the company of these lieople?" he was asked. "Of two friends, sir." "Friends; two thieves, I supiMise you mean." "That may be true," was the dry retort: "they are both lawyers." The blow that' destroys the effect of an adverse examination is occasion ally more the result of accldejit than of conscious effort. I . a trial not long ago a very simple witness was in the box, and after going through his or deal was ready to retire. One ques tion remained. "Now, Mr. , hna not an attempt been made to Induce you tp tell the court a diJerent story?" "A different atory to what I have told, slrr "Yes. Is It not bo?" "Yea, sir." "Upon your oath, I demand to know who the persons are who have at tempted this." "Well, air, you've tried as hard as any of 'em." was the unexpected an swer. It ended the examination. New Zealand Mocking Birds. The Poe honeyeater Is one of the commonest and at the same time handsomest of the New Zealand birds. The neck Is ornamented with a frill of curly feathers or a greenish color with white centers, and the throat Is adorned with a tuft of white reathera, which has gained for It the popular name of "parson bird," an appellation appropriate not only because or this decoration but because of the resem blance of its peculiar attitudes wben singing to the gesticulations Indulged In by exuberant lecturers when wish ing to drive home their points. The bird is an excellent mimic, and can be taught to repeat short sentences with extraordinary clearness and also to whistle short songs quite as well as a parrot The late Sir Walter Bulter tells the amusing story that he was once ad dressing a large meeting of natives on a matter of considerable political Im portance and had been urging hla views with all the earnestness that the subject demanded when, Imme diately on the conclusion of the speech and before the old chief to whom his arguments were chiefly ad dressed bad time to reply, a honey eater, whose netted cage hung to a rafter overhead, responded in a clear, empahUc way. "Tito!" tfslse.) The circumstance naturally causes much merriment among his audience and quite upset the gravity of the ven erable old chief. "Friend." said ha. lanrhlnr. "vour arguments are very good, but my mokal Is a very wise bird, aad he Is not yet convince!" II departure or trains. No. NORTH BOUND. , no Meteor VM 1:31 sm 116 .
