The big. handsome fellow continued
his look of stinging scrutiny. They
were sitting out on the broad veranda.
The morning sunlight trickled through
the web of morning glory vines in
front, and melted among the short,
yellow curls that rioted over the young
man's head. A sweet, soft wind came
down through the hailway, driving a
rose leaf that struck the cheek ol the
young girl and fell down on her plump
hand—a tribute of the flowers to an
object prettier than themselves.
Silence continued for about a min

firm tones, a note of pathos running

up at him. with a smile—a frank,
bantering, kissable smile. Affecta

frankness of mountain natures. "I still
think more of you than I ever did of
any other man. 1 deplore your defi
ciencies in the way of education; but
you are worth a thousand Moods,' as
you call the town boys. Still, Fred,
I'm sorry to say, you are not my
ideal, and unless I so consider you, I
don't think I could live happily with
you. I don't think I shall ever marry.
I'm too romantic in my nature—too
exacting in the demand for qualities
in my husband that don't exist in
these prosaic times. My reading has
spoiled me, I know. I live in times
long gone. My lover is yourself, but
taken back a thousand or two thou

degrees, is too commonplace for my
taste. Hundreds of times 1 have

every instance you were either a Ro

ages, with armor on, going forth to
do deeds for your lady love which the
modern man Could not even dream of
doing. Of course, such a man, out
side of books, I shall never find, and
unless rny nature changes as the years
go by, I shall never marry. Now, Fred,
I've told yon truly the state of my
mind, and you will be pleased some
day that you missed getting such a
girl as I am for a wife. Such love as
I have, however, belongs to you, out

arrivi d home.
"They're out, piled away in the
smokehouse, snmewhar among a lot

hist'rles. I'd like ter know?"
"Never mind, mam." said the youth,
as he went whistling out of the back
After a bmg search among old
shoes, trace chains, dried beans, corn
cobs and other debris. Fred finally
fished out Goldsmith's History of
Rome, an old English history. With
some labor lie read the Roman his
tory as far as the rape of the Sabines,
and. with a great grin and chuckle of
exultation, he laid it aside. Then he
took up tiie history of the Norman
Conquest, but dropped it when he read
how great King William, when a duke
in Normandy, won his exasperating
wife. Then he threw it aside, and,
plunging bis bands deep in bis pock
ets, strode to ant! fro across the floor,
bis lips struggling to smile aiul whis

A few minutes later he looked out
and saw Squire Watkins passing on
the highway. He hailed him. The
two talk' d at the fence a few minutes,
then parted, laughing ami slapping
"Main." said Fred, early the next
morning, as he appeared in his "best
duds" at the door of the smokehouse,
whore his mother was compounding
some soap grease, "I want you to
drop yor soap-making terday an' go
ter cookin' up some good things."
"Why, wlmt's up?"
"Never you mind, ole mammy! You
jist mind yar han'some son, say
nothin' but yer prayers, an' wait."
Fred then strode rapidly out of
the yard gate, where his big bay horse
stood nervously pawing the earth. He
mounted him and went with a rain of
hoofs down the hard road toward the
home of Ella McCoy.
Riding up in front of tho house, he
yelled. "Hallo!" John McCoy, big
brother of Ella, came to the door.
"Tell Eller to come out to the fence
a moment," quietly spoke the horse
Ella responded, interrogation points
in her eyes.
"Step close to the fence a moment,
Eller; I'm goin' away, an' I want to
toil ye sumthin'."
She stepped up. her face quite pale,
when Fred, making a huge hook of Ids
left arm, instantly caught her around
the waist with it, lifted her up in
front of him, drove spurs in his horse,
and dashed furiously away.
The old man McCoy and three sons
ran out, yelling, but their horses were
in the stable, and sister and daugh

Ella squirmed and screamed, but the
big giant pressed her against his great
chest and smiled gently.
"Oh, papa and the boys will kill
you !" she yelled.
"Possibly; but the Sabines didn't
kill folks like me, nor did the Romans
you brag about. Besides, people don't
often kill son-in-law, no how."
"Oh, you villain !—boo-hoo !—I won't
marry you !"
"No; the squire that's waitin' down
at the fork of the road will do that
for you. Stop your snubbin ! I'm er
Roman an' er William the Conqueror
both at once!"
The little woman could do no more.
She was conquered. She bad caused
this lawlessness, and she began to
laugh. Then, looking up in the fine
face of her modern knight, she threw
a white arm about bis neck.
Children hunger perpetually for new
idea«. They will learn with pleasure
from the lips of parents what they
deem drudgery to study in books; and
even if they have the misfortune to
be deprived of many educational nd
vantages they will grow up intelligent
if they enjoy in childhood the priv
ilege of listening daily to the conver
sation of intelligent people. We some
times see parents who are the life of
every company that they enter, dull,
silent and uninteresting at home among
their children. If they have not men
tal activity and mental stores suffi
cient for both, let them first use what
they have for their own households.

Volcanoes Hottest on Surface.
Notwithstanding what schoolbooks
have said, it now appears that a vol
cano is hottest on its surface rather
than below it. This is the conclusion
drawn by a scientist who lias made ex
tensive investigations in craters in Ha
waii and has obtained samples of gases
and lava before they reached the air,
•says Popular Mechanics Magazine.
Laboratory studies of these samples
make it appear probable that much of
the heat required to keep an open lava
basin in fluid condition is supplied by
the chemical action of the gases. From
these investigations tbe scientist con
cludes that in times of great activity
the temperature at tiie surface of e
volcano undoubtedly is higher thar
that below the surface. ____
