The sun sank oehinl the western mountain peaks, and the short twilight of t-utbern latitudes came on a apace After a time tlie man of the hoiwe came in. He was tall and thin. Two ferret likeeyea gleamed sharply upon the ped dler frota amid a shaggy tangle of white hair and beard. lie placed his long ride in a rack over the door, uaslung his shot pouch and ttien seated himself and gazed gloomily into the fire, w ithout vouchsafing either a greeting to the stranger ora word to his own family. Nan, pawing by whispered to the peddler. "iXm't ye mind nncle ; he's got one of his bad spells on now, but if he ain't bothered it'll pass off by and by." The peddler nodded, and began a tale concerning one of his adventures in Texas, lie was soon interrupted by Aunt Viney. "sit cp, stranger," said she. "We haia't got much to eet, but such as it is you're welcome. The old man ate his supper in solemn silence, after which he took his hat and abruptly left the cabin. Aunt Viney saw fit to explain. "Moses, my old man, hasn't been ex actly like hiflself since the revenoo men carried his eon John off five years ago hut April." "f.llin I s'spoee?" "Yes, 'nd top of that he shot one of 'em while they were trying to take him, nd they put him in ven'teash'ry at Nash ville for ten years." The peddler remained silent for a mo ment or two. But when the dishes were washed and pat away he again enlertain the two women by relating sundry remin iscences of his own career, and also de scribing the wonders of certain great cities be had visited. After a while Moses again stalked si lently in and t'Xik a seat in a far corner. While the peddler talked he continued to eye him closely, as if suspicious that the stranger, was not just what he should be. :peakin' of the telephone," continued the peddler, "some folks in these moun tains don't believe that people can talk to each other, 'nd them a hundred or more miles apart, but I tell ye it's a fact. I've seed it done myself." "Ive knowed of men bollerin' across from one mountain to another," said Aunt Viney dubiously. "Mebbe they could make themselves heard a matter of two miles but a hundred" she shook her head disapprovingly. "It's so all the same, though. Eve sot 'nd heard 'em talkin' jus as we be now." "That's as big a lie as ever was told," exclaimed old Moses, risirjgand making for the door. He seized his rifle as he passed, threw a menacing glance at the peddler, and once more lef the cabin. "Old man's a little touched in the bead ; ain't he 7" asked the peddler, who seemed to take no oIfen.se whatever at tbe old man's rude behavior. "Ever since John was took off he's had queer spells that corns over him every no and then. I must say he'smore'n apt to be 'spbhus of strangers when they came around, ll's always thinkin'of ravenoo spies. I destay that's what makes bior act so toward yoa. Bat yoa musn' mind him. I never know'd him to cacceed in hurting any one yet." It waa.Nan who replied, for Aunt Vi ney was making preparations to retire for the night. When the girl and the ped dler were left alone tne latter seemed somewhat curious about this son John, who for so many years had been under the ban of the law. "John was always good to l"nc!e Mose and Aunt Viney, 'ud that's one reason Uncle Mose Lakes it all so hard no." "I s'spoee bein' as you're kin to 'em yoa must V felt powerful bad wuen they lock him off?" He eyed Nan c'.ossly as he spoke, and the girl biaslied slightly. "1 ain't no real kin to 'em," said she. "My fjiks is ail dead, 'nd they raised me from a little gal, bat John 'nd me was a! ways good friends." "Notning more 7" Tne girl looked at him reprovingly. "It's about bedtime," said she coldly. "Shan't I show yoa were you're to s'.tep?" Tne peddler rose, took np his pack and followed her into the little shed room. There was an open window by the bed, through which the full moon was shin ing. - Yoa won't need no light, I reckon," she remarked. Tben, bidding him good night, she returned to the main cabin and went to bed herself. But for some reason she failed to sleep. Tbe bright moonlight, tie rasping cry of katydids from the trees without and the discomforting nature cf her thoughts kept her awake. She felt Tagneiy uneasy about Uncle Mose. Where was be? Very likely at the little moonshine still op Bear Hollow, half a mile away. He often spent the night there engaged in his illicit toil. She recembered his un friendly treatment of the peddler, whose heavy breathing could now be heard through the trim partition wall. He had once laid in wait, rifle in hand, for a passing drover, whom be had set down for a spy. Only Annt Viney's prompt appearance had prevented a probable reorder. Uncle Mose, tbocga a gol g0 iL ESTABLISHED 1827. VTEDXESDAY, APRIL 20, 1893. man enoagh when in his right mind, was a dangeroaa. uncertain personage when stirred by the memory of his son into a spirit of half insane hostility against all the world. So nneAsy did Nan become that at last she rose, s'ipped oa her dress and stole out into the moonlight An impulse she could not controll impelled her to peep in at the peddler's open window. She was prompted by fan indefinable fear. What rhe saw there caused her to start back, clasp her hands and gwp for breath. Then, trembling in every limb, she looked again, . "My tiod 1" she faltered. "Am I dream in'? Surely it cant be nd yet I must believe my own eyes." Acting under a new impulse she turn ed and tied along the trail leading to the stilL Arrived there she found the place silent and deserted. There was no fire in the furnace and nothing to be heard bat the cries et the wbippoorwills upon the mountain side. Full of painful forebodings she retraced her steps and once wore crouched be neath the peddler's window. There she waited until her limbs became cramped and the night air chilled her to the bone. "I might as well lie down again," she thought. "I reckon ancle's gone down the valley, for he 'lowed to-day as he'd have to go after coffee right away. I could wake the man up, but somehow I dannn't. He might think I was forward." But a second trial of the bed was no better than the first. Tbe peddler's heavy breathing was ever in her ears, and her thoughts reverted constantly to the sense of peril that vaguely, yet per sistently kept herapon the tender-books, of anxiety. "I wish mornin' wou'.d coats," she said lor the hundredth time. "Lord what a meeting there'll be then !" Tbe sound cf a stealthy footfall upon the gravel without brought her to a sit ting position at once. Her heart beat loudly aa she listened breathlessly. Ya it was moving around the house. -Now she could hear it no more. Could she have imagined it all ? No; there it was again in the back porch. Then then she heard a gentle creak; ing sound. Ah! The shed room door. She sprang out of bed, and a hasty bound brought her to the door leading to the back porch. She wrenched it open just in time to catch a glimpse of a tall shad ow that disappeared a ithin the 6htd room. "tfood Lord, help niel" she faintly ejaculated as she sprang forward, nerved to desperation by this dreadful fuln'.l ment.of her fears. She entered the room, There lay the peddler, slumbering heavily in the white glow of tbe moonlight. His face was strangely altered, Isr the heavy beard had fallen off, leaving exposed a clean shaven youthful fa.. But the white bearded old man ben ting over the pros trate form with uplifted knife saw noth ing distinctly. To his morbid imagin-1 ing only the form of a hated spy lay helpless before him. A spy in the ser vice of tue detested "revenoos," who had robbed hi. n of his only and well be.ov ed son. "Uncle !" screamed Nan, drajiug hiin back. "Uncle! You shall not. Can't yoa see? it's Joha our Jjhn your John!" The pedeler woke and stared upward in a bewildered way. The knife fell to the floor as Moses, his eyes almost start ing from his head, stared at his son's white face. Suddenly he comprehended and the effect descended open him lik a thunderbolt. Uttering alow, quivering cry he sank to his knees by the bedside, and his head fell forward. Nan's and John's eyes met in a mutually recognizing glance ; then tbey turned their attention to the old man. As they laid him npon the bed Aunt Viney, awakened by the noise, came in. She fell as though confronted by a ghost. John!" she exclaimed. "Yet it can't shorely be !" "Yes, it is mother. I didnt know how you'd all take my beta' so long in the pen, so when the governor pardoned ma out I 'lowed I'd come home as .a psdller 'nd in disguise till I found out if you all cared for me any more." While John was speaking Mop open ed his eyes, and tears blinded them as he gazed. "My 3on, my son!" he inarm red brokenly. "And I might have killed him! My mind's madecp. There'll be no more Btillin' done in Bar holler after this." "Do yoa reckon Nan cares for me any more, father?" asked John, while his eyes sought those of Nan. "Of course she do. Hasn't she been grievin' herself away ever sir.ee yoa was tojk. She never looked at another man." Nan's confasioa seemed to sanction this. "There's only one thing then to be done," interrupted Aunt Viney decisive ly. They've just pt to go over to the circa. t rider's next Sunday 'nd git mar ried. After that's over 'nd done with, Mose, I do hope you'll behave yourself in fatur' ." "Haint I said I weren't eotn' to 'still whiskey any more?" K ' illin's been at the bottom of all oar trou 'es." While the old folks tailed John tok Nan's hand in his, and they stealthily kissel each other. Pu'.'a.: .'. ia T7m'A The Place Was Open. A runaway darkey, before the war, was on his way to Canada, and was met by a country mas, who questioned him as to the treatment be had received at the hands of his master. " Didn't you have enough to eat ?' the country man asked. " Yea." " And a warm place to sleep ?" "Yes." "Then what did yoa ran away for?" Say, boss," the darkey replied, " if yon think you'd like tha place, it's ope it to ye." A Yorkshire Ticar once received the fallowing notice regarding a marriare from a parih house: "This is to give yoa notis that I aai Miss Jemin Ara bella Breariy iscomia to yoar church on Saturday afternoon nex, to undergo the operation of matrimony at yoar hands. Please be promp, as the cab is bireJ by the boar." U Mr. and Mrs. 3ovv3er.

' "Has, eh? We", I don't wender at it," replied Mr. Bowser. i "Tid you read the item?" "Oh, but I know how it Lappened. Ha found out that he couldn't take a bit cf comfort in his home, and he left it. Nooce knows the misery that poor man suffered before he took that step." " It dueen't say he was unhappy." " Of course not. No husband ever gets justice to say nothing of pitty. 11! bet he suffered a thousand deaths before be walked away to die in some lonely spot by his own hand." " Well, dear, you'll never be driven away at any act of mine," she said as she went over and kissed hira. " W-what in thunder are yoa doing?" shouted Mr. Bowser, as he dropped the t-hoe and sprang up.. " Why, I kissed yoa." " Well, I don't want anybody blowing into my ears or spitting on my chin ! What struck yoa all at once?" "There was a time, Mr. Bjwser there was a time when " " When what? " When yoa said that if I would kite you, you would be the happiest man in the whole world. "Never! Never even hinted such a thing ! I wasn't that sort of a noodle head !" "Mr. Bowser! Why, there was fur three months, while I was making np my mind to marry you, that you could hardly live from day to day." "Waiting! Yoa waiting! Well that is cool! That tickles me ha! ha! ha!" he shouted, as he hel l his sides. " Yes, waiting." " Why ha ! ha! ha! yoa said 'yes so mighty quick you bit your tongue in do ing it ! The idea of me pining and wast ing away becau-e I feared yoa would say no "' "Do yoa remember the pet name yoa used to call me T' she asked. " Pet nonsense !" " Ycu called me your red wild rose." " Eed wild pigweed ! Are yoa getting soft ia the head, Mrs. Bowser?" "Nearly all year letters to me were dated anywhere from midnight to 1 o'clock in tbe morning, and " "Never! Never wrote yoa a letter ex cept in the afternoon, when I hadn't any thingto do anl wanted to cue up half an hour's time," replied Mr. Bowser. "And every oue of them speaks of how lonely yoa were, and with what joyous anticipations yoa looked forward to your next call." "Lonely ! Joyous anticipations! I'd be apt to lonely when there were a dozen or more mighty good looking girls after me, wouldn't I?" But in a few brief years after mar riage how .the average husband des change," observed Mrs. Biwser, as if speaking to herself. Yes, that's it. Yoa boated me down and got me to marry yoa. and now you are trying to make my horns happy. If you are feeling badly why don't you go and make yourself some catnip tea." " Husbands talk about happy homes, she continued, as she looked the paper over, " but what do they do to Make it happy T' - " While they are courting they are all smiles and softta'k, but the honeymoon is no sooner over than they stand rt veal ed in their trae colors." " Keep pitching right in, Mrs. Bowser ! Nothing like a fault finding wife lo make home pleasant ."' " Do yoa remember that Fourth of Ju ly even.cg when we sat on the veranda"." she asked.
