Ofcoorse it would be a disap? pointment. 1 na?t recently r??t.irtu??l from aftroad uuii was called upou b? duty to journey ilown to the de? serted village of ,Ua\ burn lo pat proper respects to inv aunt and to make tlie acquaintance of the ?'ous in who bail just left school. I bad never seen her before, ex? cept peibaps aa a baby, but I oonltl picture her exactly?dressed in the vile country style, very likely freckled, ami a weare*. of spectacles; crammed to the throat with new education aud individ? uality of women doctriuecertainb. And, or course, for aunt pf9?-ess ed no tact at ttie best ot times. 1 ??tiou'd be left alone witL this in teresting female fir the greater part ot a hot mniiir-rT afternoon. She was 18, too?a most nflvuslye age. Well, I should have to be polite aud talk to her ami lier aunt ot my experience? abroa I, and then, if I had luck, I could plead tbe ex cuse of dinner iu towu and escape by an early train. The train jolted itself to a stand still. A crowd of loafers posed as professional eyesore?? in trout of a grimy inn and 00 l?mente?! upo ? my appearance. What a place! Astupnl looking servant lol.l me that tlie ladies were in the gudeu, no to the g-irden, crumiiluig, I Ii ?d to go. Ceitainly it was all awfuil\ pretty. 1 begin to wonder how 1 was looking. ?You've never met Ida before., Piuiii?;' 1 beardaoat spying. ?Weil hete ??he is.'

It's not my fault, you kuow.' A fuii'iy liitle smile q?iiver edrouud her mouib. She oovt red it up with a white rose. 'I didn't think ?on'd be a bi like what you are,' I aai?l wildly. 'People never ar? what you ex r>??ct them to be. I'm sorry you'ic disappointed.' Tm uot. 1 think you're'?I didm know what to ?ay. 'What?' She certainly was laugh iog now. 'Indescribable.' Her lace wan had buried in the rose, and two bright eye i look?! at me over the petal.??. ?I've kuowt lots of gir'8? indescribable, Tie? weren't all nice. Some were norrltl Hut you must have been disappoin ted?really. There are pleasant disappointments, just as much Bl there are unpleasant, ones.' ?In what way were you dis appointed when yon n? meV 'I saw your last photograph.' 'It was an awfully '.ibeious one, I hastened to say. ?It was. It flattered yon hor? ribly,! wonder *, ou weren't asham ed ot it.' 'I wat?; not because it flattered me.' ?I'm glad you admit that. I have one or two theories, yon know. One most have a little excitement.' :Wbat Is this particular th?or,\?' 'That men are vainer than vlrls. No, you're not to say anything, it would lead to an argument, and that wouldn't be fair. It do? rtu't need a reply, dries ilf ?No, I suppose not.' ?I've quite proved my point, haven't IT ?Kathei! somewhat absently, be canee I was wondering bow 1 could miss tue last traiu from Mij bin that evening. I believe I must have move Anyhow she seemed nearer. 'Now we'll talk about sometbit else.' 'You, lor instance,' 1 ventured 'That would be aa ?luil as?i the honks I read to mother. Sui word??! I have to twist my moul into all imaginable shapes.' 'Give me an example.' She thought f??r a moment, whi I thought, too. that I should lis to be the word that she was thinl nil? about. ?Psy-obo log ic-.il.' It came ver. slowly. I radier? 1 uioveil again, for sb stei'jK'd back. ?I??u'c that an awful wnr?l!' ?sb made a little distiacting hoop t her moatb. I began co feel str?ng? 'Don't Kay that again,' I cried. Her ?yes opened in wouilerii circles. 'Why not?' T'ccause?I'll tell yon later on.' ?Obi sutlileuly, 'Isn't this a pr?t ty rose?' '1 have se?n prettier.' 'Oil!' With a delicate drawing ir of a lower ruse leaf lip. ?I mean I ?lo *ee a prettier.' ?I'm quite sure tbat isu't true.' ?Did you ever know me to tel an untruth!' She pullid out the tiniest, mos delightful watch. *lve known yoi just 11 minutes.' ?And secoudsT' I demanded, da termined to have m.\ due. 'Sixteen about. Il.it you shall have tbe benefit ot tbe doubt. IT say 20. A ni you are surprised be cause you baveu't told me an uti tintli ?luring that time. Ob, Mr fercival !'

'I have advantage over yon. Ot conree, now, if I were a looking glass'? 'Oh, that is what yon mean. No! Stand j ist where you ,are ami don't cove ii ti 111 we bear the lunch eon gong.' I: hid been a very litte move Dent, hut I obeyed. ?B ,t Ida'? ?I m!' ?Ot course. We're co isins, aren't we? Cousins ilwa?s call each other by their Christian names.'

'I de, but how can I, when you're ??queering it all up?' 'You said just now that yon never withdrew anything.' That was the moment of toy triumph. 'Well, this is tbe exception, stupid!' I looked her straight in the fat:e. My attention was detracted. Wriggling about among tbe silk\ threads oi gold, I saw a hideous, contemptible b'ack insect, which had evidently fallen from tbe tree overhead. ?Keepstill." I cried; ?there a hor? rid beetle in your hair. Don't move your bead.' There was a deed silence, which became btoken by the taint clang? ing of the luncheon gong. ?Hurry np, mother bates me to be late.' Then, in lower tones, 'I don't believe there's an\tblng In my hair at all, except your fingers.' It was curious bow skillful tbat insect was in eluding n y grasp, and how difficult it was to loeate. I kept fingering little shining curls where I thought 1 bad seen It, luit somehow it always escaped. A', laat H Hew away, bat I still kept on looking for it. ZTer fac<? was very near mine. 1 had to st over her considerably to look the iiiMturt. 1 glanced down, and suddet the la-hes lifted. She tilted 1 head hack. I looked upon I sweetest lips In the world, 1 parted, while liLile imps of n chief were darting about in 1 eyes. ?Philip,' she said 'Yes.' It's wonderful how pressivfc .you can make a mono.? table, ?
