A new sidewalk was bring- la, d, also the station platform was umlerKo-itijj- repairs; but Uools, the village "jaek-of-all-trades," lounged beneath a biff chestnut lice whose leaves hung yellow and lim on dry twigs. "Can you direct me to the I.ooiifct Nest'.'" the tall gentleman asked this lounger. "Von can't miss it; it hides in the lo cust wood; the 'bus stands around here." and heranibling 'to his feet the speaker led the way to a low, narrow, repellant vehicle which the n-liild re fused to enter. " Tis considerable loose in the joints, little miss, hut 'twill carry you safe enough, (iood land, no! 'tisn't a hearse!" They rumbled over a bridge, turned another corner, rounded the village xquare, struck into the liooney road, ascended a hill, halting on its shoulder before a swinging white gate through which a woman had just passed. The house was delightfully old-fashioned. Dr. Cyrus Flint and little daughter ex changed wordsof approval as they went up the gravelly path leading to the great door. Largeness seemed all about t hem "these cramped-up ity folks," and the 'bu driver who had run with a message to the back door, added, in parting: "Your nest must lie getting right full; five lat week and two ( night." He was addressing Cathy, (he cook, whom Hools was courting. Two front rooms oft" the upper hull were assigned to the doctor, one of which jutted over the side veranda and was culled the balcony chamber. In at the open window the locust branches peered, and above, almot-t within reach, swayed an oriole's nest. A large waxen doll sat in a chair and a child's cot jitood in one comer. The little girl entered the clamber to look about, lay ing the blue silk parasol on the 1able while she removed her hat und pushed Jiack In. r damp, tumbled hair. The wee cot with its spotless draperies, drew her instantly. "See. father, this board ing house lady must have known I was rather small. If your room is as pretty as mine is let us live here for a long time." A few hours later, refreshed, retoned,, restored, the doctor and (iirlie went be low and met. the boarders assembling for dinner. When Mrs. Winters herself approached the doctor started slightly . Only Ciriie noticed the tremor and tightened her wee warm clasp of his big hand and looked up. A lady, a very small lady, w as looking dow n. The very tip top of this lady'scouil) reached her father's elbow. Uendiug to the child, she said, with a winning smile: "I hope that we shall become very good friends." "Perhaps we may," replied (iirlie, with lier most captivating nod tuul smile, for she was greatly pleased with every detail of her surroundings. After dinner time followed an evening full of chat, song and music. Kadi of the company seemed to have forgotten how high the thermometer was runnitg. When 1lie doctor left the circle That evening Mrs. Winters again bent down to his little daughter and kissed her. "(iood night!" returned the child. "I shall dream of the angels all night," and her father added: "She is in love with the couch, you see." The next day the inmates of the nest betook themselves to wood and stream, and a few went in 1he dow n 'bus to the station, where 13 fresh-air children were looked for, 'homes among villagers ami fanners awaiting them. Mrs. Winters also went down and sat in her phaeton w ith the doctor's daugh ter beside her when the train pulled up. The children were handed out, each with a tag attached to Ins or her left shoulder. "Ilools, bring me two of them, will yon? Prof. Kix liooney road?" Hools stood at the Shetland's head, but moved off at this word toward the newcomers, returning soon with the oldest and the youngest of the group. Pie addressed himself to the road, but just here the doctor on his new mare and his dog leaping before him rode by, wheeled and trotted back to the phaeton, "Oh, good morning!" as he lifted Girlie to his saddle, and pony and sorrel moved along together. "I confess, doctor, 1 stole your daugh ter. These boys are tagged for my cous in, who lives a half mile above the Nest." "Is your pony a good traveler? Those storm clouds are rolling up rapidly." "Yes, very good; what a bark that dog has!" . "Soul-stirring, is it?" The speaker , smiled, -touched his hat and the sorrel darted ahead, whereat Pic shook him. self and quickened his pace. Ity ten o'clock the storm was raging through the town. Two churches were struck by lightning, also chimneys and win dow glass about the square suffered considerably, llright and early the fol lowing morning Pools was up to see Cathy, the cook, pools generally did bring the village budgets, but' ihis morning much turned on his lale, for lmtt not a n-ntter of two inches or so the difference in the height of those two the Presbyterian spiie av.tl the Methodist steeple. held two hearts apart for four good year or more? It warnm tonishiug how unbridgeable, by dint of brooding over and cherishing, this rifling matter hud become. Put lo! the elements hud arbitrated. Mr. Cook announced his liniile at the breakfas.t table: "Thank the gods and graces, odds are even at last; faithful Pools and warm-hearted Cathy van conscien tiously wed." After this outbreak the weather re sumed the even tenorof its way; charm ing days rolled by, one so much like the other that few called them singly to account. Locust Nest stood in the midst of n dreamy old garden and the hum of bee and the drone of insect sounded by the hour. The doctor's child, when she was not haunting the stairway and window ledges of the de lightsome old nest itself, haunted this garden. She started out of nook or by path, taking Mrs. Winters often un awares, and always with a book in hand. Mrs, Winters, liking to pull beans herself and to "fuss" amotig her vege tables, stood one day under an apple tree surveying her store, when a some thing dropped from the- gnarled branches above. "Mercy, child, where were yon? Why do you always have that book?" "It is not that book, it is nnother. Fa t h e r a n d 1 1 h i n k w li ool s a re d i sa gree nble, so I study by myself. I learn all over just w hat I wish to. and every Fri day evening father and I visit together and I tell him w hat. I do not know. You see when people have not got niiK-h but each other they think a good deal of each other. Folks say I have lost my mother, but father said that I am not real well acquainted with anybody but old1 nurse, who looks like your Cathy, and father; we cannot stay here much longer now; T thought I would tell you. We like corners; you always find Komdhing nice around n corner; the city i.s full of corners, so I think we will go away soon," and blue eyes met blue eyes. At that instant the thud of hoofs was heard, and away down the drive and out into the road, ran the chilil. Mrs. Winters hastened into her kitchen. That evening closed In early full of darkness and storm. Heaven and earth seemed to shake beneath the mighty tread of it.s approach. Light ning cut the air, thunder rolled; the creek a quarter mile above the Nest rose defiantly so that fording was made impossible, und the bridge might easily be missed in such a night, (iirlie, who had been studying up thunderstorms of late, desired her father to neither stand nor to run if ever caught by one, "tall, pointed objects being fine marks." Several persons watched from windows the increasing gloom and fury without when dinner was called, but scarcely were they seated at table, when the waitress appeared at her mistress' el bow. The school-teacher at the pro fissor's was very ill; no doctor to be found'. Would Dr. Flint accompany the messenger? (iirlie uttered an involuntary "Oh!" Mrs. Winters not a word nor even raised her eyes. Cyrus Flint rose and strode from the room. He reappeared be capped and bedoaked and opened the outer door. Pools was there with two hcrses and a lantern, under whose red glower glistened the coats of rider and horse. A fierce gusb of wind' met him, but he made his way out. "Father!" the doctor bent from his saddle; "hold this high and sit low," and the little figure stood on its tip toes and reached up a small sunshade that precious blue silk parasol saeri lited by a warm little heart to elec tric greed, confident that Mil-rounding that, beloved, head it would' be quite "tall" enough and "pointed" enough lo avert attack. "Pless you, sweetheart! Take her in," be cried; but Cathy's arms were already ulwut her and she was carried in while her father rode away into the wild night. The ehinie-like stroke of the great clock -was telling H when a. violent knock came on the kitchen door and Pools' voice was heard. Cathy set the door ajar when Pools pushed it cpen and entered, followed by neighboring farmhand's bearing a rude litter upon which was stretched. a form whose gar ments, as did those of the other men, dripped water which trickled right and left, over the polished floor. The cook wrung her hands. "Oh, my! Oh, my! Is lie killed or drowned that you fetch him on a raft, and his fatherless babe above stairs. Oh, my! Oh, my!" "Hist! Where's the lady?" Put Mrs. Winters, her eyes wide and full of alarm, already stood on a threshold beckoning. "Priug hi in this way into the bedroom, and do you, llools, watch nil the trains and catch the first doc tor w ho comes." Then she and Cathy worked over the injured man until day break, with which came Hools and i)r, liale. Late in the afternoon Dr. Flint wak ened, conscious and observant. An anx ious face was bending over liim, and before its owner could withdraw the dux'tor grasped two small hands. "Petal My Ueta! I see a.ll now. Some thing has shadowed me persistently iinee the night 1 arrived. For two years 1 have dreamed of you by night and searched for yon bv lav. Rota! my wife!" Mrs. Winters Flint sobbed as she hid her face on bis arm. "I -went directly to Paris where 1 c:nnie to myself and solemnly abjured my base vanity. 1 did indeed! Uncle ( ook returned with me an the fall anil we have been here ever since. I, wait ing and watching for my husband, for 1 knew- he would also return sooner or later to find me. Oh, Cyrus, it was my pride, not my heart, which went astray my false pride, but I renounced it long ago!" "So round this corner In their streets of lift" They, on a sudden, clasped them with a smile." Panner of Gold.
