VA IIIKTY. Waiting. He li.i.l been going with her two months last Sunday night. In that time ho ha? learned to love her ilearlv, but ho failed te comprehend her feelings toward him. She was not an easy person to read, but had he l>een less timid and more confident he would have cosily seen that his position toward her was something to he pr 'lid of. On Sunday right he was determined to brt>aeh the all iro por tant subject, and learn his fate. Hut when he fouud himself alone with Ler his Courage failed biin. Several times iu the course of the eve rting he got Lis tin nth < j-vr, and was on the verge of doing it, when a glance at her bright face would melt his determination and his I ps would shut despondently. It was getti: g along toward midnight, and nothing had yet been done. It was time he was going. Ihis reliction nerved him. Suddenly he seized her hand. “ Isabel J" he gasped. “ What is it, Tom ?” she queried. “I—I—1.’’ He looked at her with a des pairing look in bis eyes. “Isabel, I —1 wa—." He broke down agiin, trembling violently. “ Toro," said she, softly, “ wait for yt ur second winil." He waited. A Salutary Remark.

Ouo of bis friends ol> serving hitu frequently doing so, questioned 1 dm as to why he did .t; he told him he gave too much, and said it would be to bis disad vantage. Now, dear reader, mark the answer if this excellent man ; ** t.«i d has permitted me but cuejurney through the world, anil when 1 am gone I can not return o rectify mistakes." Think of this. There is but one j u.my th rough life. “Why don’t you go home'.’” asked a po liceman of a man he f und sitting on a door step at a late hour in tie night. “ 1 live here,' mumbled the man, dreamily. “My wile threw me out of the house because she thought 1 w as drunk. Tbe same thing happened to ineat tho sktsn fr m which I ju.-t came I am determined not to be thrown out the third time; at least that much self-respect a man muil possess.
