It was, an old country home
Long rows of oak trees sbadec
the old time house nestled beneati
their waving moss covered bran
cbes. There was a long, cool piazzi
in front, and a long inviting jog
gling board in the east end. - A
least it must have been very in
viting, for gay groups of noiej
t.school children were continuallj
joggling out there. There, was
bright, laughing set of girls an<
boya, sitting undier a great hicke

lun rch was spread in temnpting prc

Cof themn had spread. From a

which she was about to fasten in
Day's coat, when he arrested her
and throwing it across -to Olive
'There, Miss Olive I you can
keep that or give it to your sweet
heart, just as suits your fancy.'
She picked it up and gary him

brown eyes.
'Thank you Day !' Lydia said
testily. 'When I next offer you
a flower you will accept it.'.
'No offeie meant, Miss Lydia,
I only did not like to share senti

Day was still stretched on the
grass, and pushing the wide straw I
hat off his t;row, he said: 'Why J
don't, you talk to me sometimes,
Miss Oliver
'I think you are talked to quite
enough without my help. Lydia
hardly notices those other poor ]
fellows when . you are near at
hand.' She said, trying to reprees I
a smile. 1
'You mean when Fred or Doland
is away. She i. a qly ulss. Mi'.u

where he stands with her.' -
'Why don't you ask her ?' dry

in the

'Then I must tay you care so
little for her opinion, I am sure
she thinks you do.'
-1 am sorry I do not, just see
how she is smiling on poor fool
ish. Fred. But there is no go
I there I Not while Doland is in
the field.
'So you think he is first choicu
with her?'
- 'Yes so long as he carries the
t heavier purse.'
'And you think she can be
r bought.'
I 'Yes.'
S'You are complimeutary to my

r 'Oh, well, we won't quarrel
-though I flope you are mistakehn.'
e -1 don't think so, though, just
ci see how she is turning the heads
; of those two foolish boys yonder.'
S 4nd if you were there you too
e would share her smiles. Where's
, the difference ?'

mem bered what Fan had only ac

t Day saked abr.uptly :'Of what
are you thin -g, Miss Olive ?'
'Of you,' s said coolly.
'Thank you I did not think .
I ever occupied your thoughts, wa'
as was it good or bad?7'
o 'I was only wondering if a cer

r 'It is not. Will you believe me
g You refer to a report that I bat
d addressed Miss Lydia.'
is -Yes; I am glad you had hear<
it before. But sorry I. heard it
d at all.'
~e 'And why ?' Did you pity m
~e or the young lady ?'
'You. And I am sorry on som<
p. ')tber account.'
l. 'I think I understand you~, an
r I hope she will feel no annoy anc'

While be was speaking Olive
relt the -guilty blushes stealing in
to her cheeks, and she pulled her
long son bonnet lo er to hide
She had put the flowers there
and never guessed, till now, that
be had found it out.
When she looked up Day was
watching her narrowly and turn

lead blossoms saying, 'Are you
sorry you gave them Miss Olive?

She bakf. smiled as she arose
