'"A new chain' er set and it w ill h nice," and lira. Mayler h.lf clcsd her eytsand toi-k in the tuppostd eiiVci. Thtn for the twentieth tiinn, p-riiAp, she went owr the Mtn:C read, cao-a'.at-ing how much Ler chicken, and turkeys would l.-rius. "Ami if they are ai fair as I think, 1 will lay by en-.ivh fer Chri.-.tnis t res enlH ail around and f'ibs.-rile for that journal too," and with a liht heart and smilinz face she hurried down stairs. Hahy wast bi:sy with his blocks, fi ahe went into 'he kilchea to j r;;'are sapper j'lt herix-lf and Jed and little iiiy Clue and a quietly Iiappy family it Imd ever been. If it km hard fcae times (o bear and forbear, they tried for love's wcet Pake. And if Janet s trie ofler.c-st to j iftld neither aeetned to nt.lice it. O-ily a look at bc-r bright, lovii:g face and one might euem t-h J was very well accustomed to f jrgetlin No. 1 altogether; aad he he w.ta a min.j ni an easy-p.jiLg man, that was ail. A fur fopjr the pju'try was :Vl fchtit op in their houses f.-r to-tsoirow'a Pale, and after an alojct R-td g.d-Ly tlini-t the next morning saw part of her hard eunim-r's work roll away over tho hiil tomatkft. It waa TueS-lay. ' And a'wrt Friday Caby and I wi'i g. to town and invest onr uioney," and she laughed almcsc like a child aa tLe tossed the baby up. "Papa's coa.in, baoy mine,"' aud down to the pi's ol.e carried her boy for Lis delightful ride up to t!ie baru with papa. "How did they noil, Jed? Ft, were they?'' ihe askel when the wagon ttnp ped at the barn. Fat as butter acd got the higlx-Et ptite." "Cah ?" and she patted old PriJe oa Lis velvety nose. Yes," and he led the horss into their Btalla. Supper pifcinj hot," she callc 1 bark over h;r bhoulder, aa she went to the house. Sapper patted pleasantly, Jed ro'.a'- irg all the newi from t.wn and t'uc iit- enirg and firedini; baby, e- ing on fre- qneut j jiJ.-neya into the little b!to:n-!t-s month after stray crusts or othei forbidden matter whivh bappet'.el too near. "And now let me have it, Jed, ail in my hand, aud gee if it's worth the con stant care and woi k I've endured," and oue ftt the boy on hia kcte. ' What, Janet?" and hs locked at her absently. ' My tconey," aad still Ler hand wes oiitstrctcLcd. Why, w iiV, I paid f or the bindirg twine w ith it." "You did! and yea Biti.I last spring: 'P.j ycur best and rap the proceed.,' " and her eyes flashed indignantly. "Why, I didn't sappoe you had. any use for it, and yon are re3pin? the jiro ceeds when the debts aw paid," and he tried to look naturally. "But that waa ruiue, earned pulticg in over Lour3 and extra dya," and she c: uld not hide a eob. 'Oh, well, never mind. What's mine's yonrsand yoars mine," and ne put ba by djwn without Lis evening roaunpand went out with the milk pail. And Janet hurried into the dim sitting room and had a god cry good, be cause it relieved her over wrought fel irgi He must have nuti.-J her swol len eyes, for after an attempt to talk o . er L'a paper he went to bed. Days, weeks and months passed until little I5oy Clue waa a little man of three. During that time Janet ha 1 been a pa tient wife to a good husband, but she was wiser, and that little lesson learn ed a year previously 6he had never for gotten, and she determined, for the ake of her independence, for the sake of their future wedded life, and for LU ake too, never to be so put tipon again. She bad discarded her idea of rawing poultry, but she had a sice fat steer which waa to be sold with the rest of the car load soon. When Caby was still a little sleeping bundle, Jed had brought into the kitch en a tiny calf. It was a raw, bitter cold day and the little thing was almost dead when discovered. "Might as well kill it and have done with it," Jed suggested. "Oh, no; let it live if it can," Janet pleaded. "Well, fin with it if yoa want to and you can have whatever it amounts to. It was days before it could stand alone, but by and by it began to get interested, it seemed, in its own life, and grew and waxed strong. Its legs were very short but atubby and firm. It had always been a aource of amoaement bjlweea -4- the two to see Janet's caif overtake acd then slow ly out.-trip Jed's of the Faa.e ae. Cut it was now considered in prime condition and was to eo with the rst to CLioijjo. Janet said nothing bet felt a great de.!. So when the re turns caaio she waited for Lira to give her her share. Cut not a word was saH, so she reminded him of it. "Oh, etclT anil nonsense .'" he replied altiiirst ani ily. 'Iftse rua.-:t keep an account let ween ns, I thick it's a pity. V J li.ivj it or yoa have it, what odds?" ' Cut yoa always have it," the replied quietly. 'Ciit I ?:i the man and it's my pkee t, '"Not to cut me down to asking lor what is my own. You pave me the calf anl would have killed il bat fjrme." "Who fed it?' he a?ked. "If it's hf.lf and half as yoa say, I fed i, a;id six cf the other thirteen that yon say are yoip-i." ' Cut it's nonsense your acting so. Ain't you coujfortable. ' Perhaps. Cat it's not that. It's a question of right. Have I not aa good jtii'grnent aa you? ' and her face was very )a!e. 'Wtli, of course, you'll have the last word, but I have the money and you haven't"' and he failed ia hi9 attempt to S'ni'.e naturally as he turned to go. "Wait! wait! acd so yoa claim you have a right to sell my property and keep my money," aad she looked at him Lauihtily. "I say it's ours. If yoa ne! a new dress or anything, say so," aad he slam med the door. he did not so'i this time; she was thoroughly iadignact aad proceeded to carry out her plan. As Eooa as he was gone she took Ciby acd walked a mile to see a man who hud lorg wanted to bay a to-year-o!d colt of tht in. At one time Jed had al most accepted the oli'er, next thought better of it, and would not let the colt go. She found little trouble in closing the tiar..in, he supposing Jed had 6ent her. Her only fear had been from his inability to pay cah. Bit he ban lei her the money and fihe told him he mL'ht take his property. .So when Jed C4ne home at niiht he found aa empty tt.i!!.
