cawing of the reeks.
The house, tee, when lie reached it,
seemed te be deserted. The front deer
was open, but the. rooms were empty.
"Janet I" he cried, but there came
no answer. Then he heard a burst of
laughter from the back, and, going
through the dining-room te the piazza, piazza,
he saw what was happening.

came te the Parson :
"The I'nrsen wns the first man that

The rough jest was received with

the girls stretching straw ropes te trip
