It was the close of a midsummer after, noon, and there were few travelers on a country road leading from the drowsy little town of llailowell. A winding, 6tony road it was, but it led over pictur esque bridges and clear rivers, througa woods that were dark and cool, and fra grant w ith the breath cf pines, out aain past comforlable f.irm-hoa.-es, and eud deuly up steep hilis from whose t. jsa charging landscaje was visible. Tbe air was ciear ami full of a certain bracing quality that makes Maine a de lightful scjourniug place iu summer. .So at least it seemed to Mark Hough ton, ad he breathed the air of his native .State for the first lime in twenty-live years. He had purposely left, his coin ing unannounced that he might enjoy the luxury of a walk over the old road, w hose every scene had once been so fa miliar to him. Memory plays strange pranks with the most strait-laced of us at times, aud as suredly it was only her uiH.-ic ibat made ttiis Near York lawyer enjoy a dusty country walk for auld lang syne. A sudden turn and he came upon the little school kouse, j:iat w here it used to stand, aud but little changed in outaard look Dy the inevitable wear and tear of years. 'lt holds its ow n better than I had hoped," thought the lawyer, and moved by a rudden impulse he turned from the road and went up to the door. It was hot locked, and in a moment he stood in side. Here he sow numerous changes that altered Uie aspect of the place. Oesks and seats of a more modern style replaced the rude benches Le re- mem bered, and the wails were covered with blackboards and maps. Walking over to the teacher's chair he sat down and thoughtfully regarded the little room which had the desolate look peculiar to empty school-rooms. Here he had learned his tirst lessons in days that returned to bis memory only in fiaguieuts and half-remembered inci dents. Here, as he grew to be a larger lad, he had w restled w ith many a "knot ty" example, or surreptitiously planned frolics for recess. He recalled, too, some of his boyish day-dreams of "great things to do by and by," and smiled baif bitterly as he con trasted them with the prosaic, self-centred life of his after years. Then there were tbe later days when, as a young collegian, he came back to spend his vacation, and taught the little school himself to help meet expenses at college. What a hu u bruin life it was, to be sure, sitting there through the long summer days and hearing toe rural lads and lassies stum ble through their lessons ! What a stupid lot of pupils they were ail but one of them. And here Mark Houghton came chron ologically to the thought that had been running w ith more or less self assertion ail through his musings, tbe thought of Leah Hastings. She was the brightest cf his older pupils, and ba4 even shared w ith him some of the studies he was try ing to "make np"during the summer. But it was not as his pupil that he re membered Leah, it w as as the gay and light-hearted yet womanly girl, with her great, serious eyes and frank smile. A curious mixture she was indeed," thought the lawyer. "Our love seems like some faraway dream, eouie bright idyL I wonder, if we bad not quarreled, how she would have chanred ur life. with her high ideals and happy nature? ' A slight sound at the open door start lrd him ; he turned his head and saw a woman standing there, half hesitating, on the threshold. "I beg your pardon," 6he began, "I thought" but something familiar in the man's face stopped her. As for him he knew from tbe first mo ment that it was Leah Hastings. With all the change that time had wrought in her and they were not few he could not mistake that long remembered face. In a moment, she, too, recognized him, doubted fully at first, but w itb a growing certainly in her face as she studied him. He realised with some satisfaction that he had the advantage of her in self-pos session, since she could have had no thought of seeing him, while tbe meet ing was to him quite within tbe realm of possibilities when he arrived in Maine. "Well, Miss Hastings, " he began, "this is indeed an unexpected pleasure. Who could have thought that yours would be the first familiar face I should see on toy return to the old place ?" Ache spoke be ad vanced towards her, ESTABLISHED 1827. holding out his hand. She put hers in it, saying composedly: "Am 1 indeed, the first? Your coming is unexpected, then." "You do not say yoa are glad to wel come me back. Bat I remember that yoa never would be conventional," he said, taking a subtle pleasure in the con fusion which he could see she was trying hard to conceal. But those fe r words, half in mockery, half in challenge, pnt Leah at her ease. Looking him directly in the face, she re sponded : "Why should we be expected to wel come people whom we have long learned to lie? without, and-whom we never ex to see again? It is like the sudden stop ping of a train ; it gives you a backward jerk that is not altogether agreeable." "True," he answered, rather sadly, "I i suppose I've lost all claim to anyone s in interest down this way. I only hope my brother won't think so, Lx, when I walk in on him unannounced." There was a moment's silence. Mark looked at the woman before him, notic ing the changes in her. The beauty of nineteen bad faded, but enough of it yet remained to make, with .the added strength and character of later years, a face that was attractive. ' "I said 'Miss Hastim!,'" began the lawyer again. "Was I right, or hate you laid aside the old name with other relics of the paat?" There was the faintest possible flush on her cheek as she answered : "I have kept my name with my uncon vantionality.' "I have fallen into quite a reverie, as I sat here, over old scenes and faces. Ik you recollect the first day I taught school here, and what a peck of trouble those little towed-headed Briggfl children gave me? It was a long struggle, but I sub dued them before the end of the term.'' Hewenton reflectively and in an in different tone, as if he werk talking to some one else: "There was another pupil, though, w ho gave me more trouble than any of them and whom I never fully conquered. What a little flirt you were, anyway, Iah !" "Yoa know I never was that," she Si.id, gravely. "Well, no, to do you justice, yoa wern't. I believe you really thought you were in earnest for awhile. Yes, I'll do yoa the justice to think you deceived yourself as well as me." His tone was more serious now and he glanced furtively at Leah to see how she w as taking his words. But she remained silent, nor could he read her thoughts in her lace. "Leah," he began, abruptly, "I wish you would explain your action there at the last I never could see why and now, after all these years, I should just like V have it cleared up. Won yoa listen to my side and teil me yours 7" For a few moment's she did not reply, but stood looking off over the hills, where the sun was ju.t sinking from aigbL "What is the nse?" she said at last. "It is all over longago, an.l we have come loan age where we can overlook and forgive without explanations. We both misunderstood and misjudged each other of that I have Ions been sure. It it rest at that." ' But I cannot be content with that I thought I had put it all out of my life, I-eah. It has been a busy life, and I have taken care that I should have but little time for thoughL I schooled my self io keep ail thought of you from my mind, and for the most part I have suc ceeded. 1 thought I could go on to the end but now that I see you again the years that lie between our youth and now are as if they bad never been. Leah, I can't believe but that yoa care yet, too. Let us rectify our mistakes and end our lives as wwshould have lived them togeth2r !" "No, no," she Said, putting out her hands as if to push the thought away. "It is too late. We have been learning to live alone. We have each made our own life and found a certain happiness in it. It is too late to make a change. What have our lives in common yours, a lawyer's busy and studious, passed in a great city, and touched on all sides by interests of w hose very existence I aiu ignorant; mine, a quiet, country life, spent almost iu solitude, with cares and pleasures that to yoa would seem petty ? They would clash if brought together. By some trick of fancy Mark Houh ton remembered at that instant that it was at this door they had first told their loves. That was at sunset, too, and not far away a brown thrush was singing his joyous vesper song. "You will thank me for what I have said when yoa get back to New Ytirk," L?ah continued, her voice trembling a little, but her eyes looking steadily into his. And in his heart he felt that she was right right at least as to the difficulty of welding their tit o lives into one. But for a while he continued to urge her to reconsider. She only shook her head and said gently : "It is too late. We must not add to our folly by making a greater mistake than that of our youth." At last lie turned to go. "I hope I shall feel one day that yoa are right," he said. "Good-by." At that moment a brown thrush on a tree top near by broke out into a flood of melody. He sang as joyously as if all the world were young and the only natu ral conditions were happiness. At tbe sound Leah turned her head with a startled look of lecollection. Her eyes met Mark's. "It is not to late, Leah !" he cried, catching her hand. "Listen! our old frierl advises as just as he did the first time love and be happy ! There is time enough yet, is ther-j not?" And some way she could no longer find it in her heart to say ' No." Sex Fori IForM. Srength and Health. If yoa are not feeling strong and heal thy, try Electric Bitters.

Just about "groundhog iay," which all well-informed people know to be Feb. 2, a New Jersey farmer heard a flock of crows making a big fuss in a field near the woods. The farmer investigat ed and found the cause of their disturb ance to be a ground hog looking for something to eat For some reason the crows resiented the appearance of the lit tle animal and assailed him on every side w ith sharp beaks and claws. s As good luck would have it, the groundhog was near his hole, and in he w ent in a Lurry. His sudden disappearance caused sur prise and consternation anions; the crows and for'a time they flew around wildly. Then they held a council, with the re suit that two old crows flew to the top of w rait leuce a lew leei irouj me uuuus as sentinels, while the others flew some r e r e . I - v. .. . 1 distance away. Ten minutes elapsed and then the groundhog reappeared. Instantly the sentinels cawed the signal, and the main army came flying, but the animal was too quick and dodged into his ho ne. The exasperated crows immediately fell to work, and in the course of 13 min utes plugged cp the hole with dirt and stones. Then they indulged in a chorus of exultation and were having a joyous time when one old crow gave a terrible caw of rage. He had discovered the groundhog sit- ting on a knoll 00 feet away, having emerged from the other end of his bur row. Then there was another council of war, and the farmer expected to see another attack, but it soon became evident that the crows were disheartened, and after awhile they arose as one bird and with a few faint hearted caws flew to the woods and disappeared, thus acknowledging that the groundhog was smarter than they.

L')':'' (tit1 Ih inur.il'. A Story of General Butler. John B. Elder, who recently returned from atrip to New Orleans, while speak- ing of General Benjamin F. Batler the other day told the following story : "Butler is stiil heartily hated tiiere, but the hatred is not universal. I have even heard some native Louisianians speak well of him, and there are a num ber of local anecdotes concerning him that have not been in print that show that now and then he even went out of his way to do a gracious act. "Among those who had reason to change their views of Butler was a wealthy Creole named Ma-pereau, A snar merchant and baoker. He did not if into the army, but his sympathies were w ith the sniu.'i. "When Butler took possession, Maspe reau was greatly alarmed ab,ut his por table pro;rty. He had a great quanti ty of silverware which hal been in the fa-i!y through several generations. His sisters also were well supplied w ith this metal. "Maspereau was afraid of raiders, and packing up all of hlssil.'er, together w.th that of his sisters, put it on board ves sel to ship it for safety to New York. "fhis came to the ears of Batler. The vessel was not permitted U) sail, and Maspereau was sent for. He entered the presence of Bdtier in fear and trembling. Butler in a steru voice asked why Le was sending his plate away, and Masper eau told him for safety, as he didn't think it secure in New Orleans. "Yoa take that silver to the custom house,' said Butler. 'It shall never be said that property is sent out of New Orleans for safety while General Bailer is in command of this place." "Maspertao, who tul.l me this, said that he did so, an i ihe silver was take care of and returned to him w hen quiet was restored." InluuuttJ,i .'. - Knew Her Hubby.
