Wo ore oul, but ?wo must hurry unless you want a lec? turo from nuntle." Thls seonicd to apur them on In thelr rhlschlovous errand. They went along hand in hand singlng bright little songc, down tho old country road.to tho vlllago. Many adrnlrlng glancos wero cast at theso two slsters; slsters, and yet so unllko each other. Caddlo a little falry queen ?wlth .aughfng dark bluo oyes, small regular features, and a mass of fluffy golden halr crowns the atately little head, dark curllng cyc-lashest and dellcately traced eyourows, the sweet rosebud mouth ftver ready for klsses.

"Xo, you are mlstaken tlils tlme,. but promlgo us you wlll come: do come, please," sald wlnnlng Rose. "All rlght. I'll be there. How l? your auntlo, dears?" "Oh, sho ls all O. K. Now, Mr. Ryvers, don't say anythtnjg about eeelng us ln tho vlll__e. Just drop ln; you know -what we mean." "Why. Caddy, -what do you Iook so thoughtful about?" asked Mr. Ryvers. "I was just thlnirlng how Jolly It -would bo to have you for an uncle," and tho greatest business man in the village blushed llko a school glrl. "Shame on you, Caddle," crled Rose. "Well, glrls, I -wlll seo you this af? ternoon," and, ralslng hls hat, passes on down tho street. "That's score "Mo. 1, Rose; now for the cards, and then off for home." In the meantlrae Mr. Ryvers ls busy thinklng. and the more.he thlnks, the more he blushes. Tes, he la aaylng, I havo known her slnce sho was a glrl ln plnafores, and .1 love hor, but I grow awkward ln her company; tho words seem to stlck in my throat, but I am re solvod to ask her thls afternoon lf I got the ohance, and he walks Into hl3 ofllco, shuts the door wlth a bang, throws himself. Into the great omce chalr, and say, "I will!" with a determination born of nerolc courage. Aftor purchasing their cards, Caddie and Rose walk briskly along untll they reach the park gate. "Oh, Caddie, Iook; who ls that young man stanaing at tho gate?" and the speaker's voice trembled wlth emotlon', her eyes began to sparkle, and a crimson roao would have looked pale beslde her cheeks. "I declare, Rose, I wouldn't show my love so plaln lf i were you; anyone can tell you are in love wlth Jack Randolph, but then 1 don't blamo you, he ls a nico follow." "Thatik you, Caddie; when you compli ment hlm you compllm.nt.me." _ "Oh, I' wonder, is lt". so serlous as that?" "Why, no, Caddie, there ls nothlng serlous, but then you are such a dear old goose, always gettlng the wrong end of everythlng." "Why, what an unexpected pleasure," sald the young man, comlng forward to meet them. "A pleasuer indeed," sald Rose, blushlng furlou&.y, "to see you agaln. Why, you are almost a stranger," taklng- hls ex tended hand and looking shyly up Into his handsome honest face to meet his admlrln? gaze. "Yes, Mr. Randolph,' we have mlssed your agreeabje company very much slnco you went away, and I was Just saylng to Rose thls mornlng how lonesome It was and she proposed a Hallowe'en party. Now we want your help. Tou know Auntle would never consent to a party, but I think Rose has solved the polnt," and here Caddie leaves tho lovera to them selves. Wlse llttle gMrl. "Well, Rose, I havo walted for this chanco for a long" tlme. Now that I havo lt I'll mako good of lt." "What do you mean, Mr. Randolph," said Rose, not darlng to look up, lest he Bhould see how pleased sho was at hear lng hlm speak those words lo her. "I mean thlis, dear Rose," he said, tak? ing her little trerrrbUng hand ln hls, "that I lovo you, niy darllng, and I want you for my w.ie, for my very own; say'yes," ho added in his soft,- sweot volco and persuasive tono. "Vou know thero ls no one ln tho world so dear to Tne." "1'os, Jack, I lovo you; I'vo always loved you, axtd lf you want me poor Ilttlo mo, to share your llfe, why i shall be most happy to do so." "That ls a nlco llttle glrl," crled Jock, cntchlng her to hls bosoin and ralnlng pas-lonnto klsses on her sweet mouth. "Have'you flnished?" said Caddle, hur rying up. "I am coming, I am golng to look, eiulck, hero I am." "Ves," said Jack, "allow me to Intro duce you to tlie futuro Mrs. Randolph." "Oh, Indeed, well I wish you luck," taklng both tholr hands ln her own. "I am happy to own you as a brother, but I'll havo to part you now, I fear, for auntio wants us.both rlght away, Rose, dear. Vou undorstand, Jack. Auntle has very pecullar ways, but sho ls good to ue. and, of courso, wo must oboy her, and lt Is posltlvoly agalnst her rules for us to receive attentlon from youn*r mon, ao good-bye untll Ilallowc'en nlght." After saylng thls Caddle walks away towards tno old gray stono manslon, ltjav lng Rose to tako a most affectlohate good-b/o of her lover. "Well, Rose, you havo made mo the happlost man ln tlio world, I can't real lzo that you are to be mlne." "And I am happy too, dear Jack. I wonder what auntio suid father wlll say," "All rlght, I am cotnlns." answered Roso to Caddla's call, and sho etarts for? ward, but Jack catchos hor by tlio hand and draws her to him, "Aro you going to leave mo like thls, Ilttlo ono; just think It wlll be two <iuys before we see ach other agaln," and he bonds his handsome hoad and klsses her agnln and agaln, "Good-bye, aweet Roso," ? "Oood-byo, Ja_k." "Well, I hopo that klsslng match ia over," snid Caddle, aa Roso catchea up wlth hor. "Husli, doarl some ono may hoar you." "I wondor what can auntio want wlth us," andJ lcnowlng they would flnd her in tho llbrary, ?o stralght to hor. "Naugluty, naughty glrls, where havo you beon? Hero I hav* been waltlng at least an' hour for you," "Why, Auntle, wo wero ln tho park." said Caddle, answortnjj liaattly to hlde hor slster's a_ltution. Ilore they wero lnterrupted by ''Old Hbony." "Mr. Joo Ryve*-s to seo you, Mlesus,". ho said, u8horlng Vhat gentloman into' tho llbrary. Miss Gurlteld' rlses wlth flusliod cheeks to meot hor vlsltor.-'and, whlle ah]a l)> ?.recllng hlm Rose and Caddle sllp -be'lilnd tho heavy wlndow curtains to awnlt the development of the case. Aftor tho formal- groetlngs nre. over . tr. Ryvers says some thln** about busl nesB mattersj then ho crosses hls leg, begrlns to grow red In the face. Ho plays wlth hls flngers, looklng like nn over grown, awkward school boy trylng to hldfl hls shanks wlth short breeches. "Well, er?ar, MJss O-arfiold, 1 nm go? lng to nfik you a quoMlon 1 ncvor asked yotl boforn." "Yea, go on," she sald ln her sweeto.it lone. "Woll, er, you seo a fellow seta tired of living alone, and l think you would be company for a fellow, for me 1 mean." "You moan you want mo for your wlfe." A STilgglfl behfnd tho curtaln. "Hush, Caddy, we wlll bo dlscovered and then tho party wlll be off. Llsten to what thoy aro saylng." "Yc_, that ls what I mean; you son It Is thls way, Anna, I have always lovcd you, but could novor brlng myself to ask you, bellovlng you dld not lovo me." "You, dear foollsh Joe, when I have loved you slnce wo went to sohool to? gether." "So then you wlll be mlno." "Come, Caddlo, let us sllp away. I am Jus-t dylng to laiigh." "All rlght, Rosa, but I think lt 1? tho most absurd thlng I ever heard of. Is that the way Jack tallted to you?" "Why, no," sald Ro.ie, and tho rlch blood dyed hca. falr faco as* sho thought of her lover. "Como, let us soe about the polnt," sald Caddlo, as they reaohed tho l.awn below tho wlndow, and psflslng around to the front ontranca they cntor tho library' Just n? Miss GorJleld answered Mr. lty vora's questlon to hls sattsfaotlou. After greotlng Mr. Ryvers, they proceed stralght to the polnt. "Oh, dear Auntle, we havo a favor to ask of you. Pleaso grant U, won't you? Bay yes; -there ls a dear, nlce Auntle," aald Caddie, puttlng her arms .-wound her neck. "I'll grant you anythlng, my dear little Caddie," sald Miss G'arflold, caresslng hor beautlful nie__. "What Is It you want?" "Day after to-morrow ls Hallowo'en, and Rose and I want you to glvo us a party. Don't say no, because lt Is the flrst ono wo have asked you for," and sho raised her pleadlng bluo cyo3 to her auntlo's face. Miss Garfleld consldered for a momont nnd then appealed to Mr. Ryvers for help. "Why, I don't seo any harrn ln lt," sald Mr. Ryvers. "What a dear, old dear!" exclaimed both glrls, grasplng both of hls hands and nearty smotherlng hlm wlth kisses. So lt was settled.' Just then tea was brought ln, after which the glrls went to thelr rooms to prepare the invKa tlons. For the next two days tho party was the subject of discusslon?was over such a thlng heard of beforo? Miss Garelldl glvo a partyl Why, for twenty y?ars the old gray stone manslon had been shut to every vlsltor, and now a party. What could lt mean! But, then, thlngs had changed; Miss Garfleld was soon to .be? come the brldo of Mr. Ryvers. At last tho nlght arrlved, and every thlng was ln readiness. Rose ls maklng her tollet and busy thlnklng of Jack, when Caddle burst Into her boudolr and laughlngly asked: "Say, Roso, how do I look? See I have worn my pale blue robe, the one you like best." "Oh! Caddle, dear, you look like an angel." "Stop pufflng your hot alr." crled Cad dae, maklng a grimace, "and hurry up; somo of the guests have arrlved already." "All rlght, dear; Just one second, now; how do I look?" "Why, Rose, dear, you are a perfect dream," said Caddle, dropplng her a mock courtesy as they go swiftly down lhe broad stalrway into tho drawing room where some of their young friends had assembled. When the curtains are drawn aslde for them to enter a burst of admiratlon. greets them, and, passing ih, they. begiii' to chat merrlly. Roso ls by Jack's side, so she is happy. The' last guest has arrlved, nnd among liiem an uninvlted one. Let us follow him for awhilo "as tho others have stop ped talklng and everything ls silent, and wlll ,be untll 12 o'clock, when the sweet hearts and loyors will come and speak to them. Back ln the servant'e quarters every? thing is in cbmmotion, for Tom Gar? fleld, the scapegrace of the family, has returned quite unexpectedly. In fact he had been expelled for some mlschlevous deed, so -o has returned ln tlme to play another. "Say, Bbony, what ln the deuce ls to pay here to-nlght; has Anna gone crazy? What haa changed her so?" "Lor' now, Marse, aln't you done hearn 'bout de -..assus and Marso Ribers?dey ls gwino ter bo marriod." "Anna and Mr. Ryvers to be marrled, dld you say?" "Dat's what I's done said, Marse Tom.' "Well, good glory, I am in luck. Now I won't get a lecturo about college, and I'll have thlngs golng my way for awhlle," and the young college student dances up and down tho floor, but flnally stops ln front of old Ebony as a scheme pnsses through hls mlnd. "Say, Ebony, get me the largest shoet ln the house and follow me." "What you gwino ter do wid a sheot, Marse Tom?" , "Aw, come along, I's gwlne ter have a Ilttlo fun," said Tom mocking tlie ;old negro servant who had been ln the fam? lly over slnce he was a llttle chap six months old. "Brlng lt around to tho drawing-room wlndow that opens on tho lawn." So saylng, ho goos out and walts for old Ebony by tho wlndow. But ho Is busy wllllo ho walts, for ho ralses the wlndow so deftly and noiseleasly that anyone would think he was used to lt After accompllsliing thls he Jumps to tho ground, and, just then, "Old Ebony" comes up wlth tho sheot. "Look here, does anyone ln the house know I am hero?" "Not dat I knows of, Marse." "Well, keep mum, you hear; don't let on that I am hero; lf you do you know what Is coming." He takes tho sheet from tho old man and wraps himself up so that Just hls eyes show, then springs on to tho llttle sldo porch, Just ns tho clock ls striklng eleven. Everything ls quiot wlthln, not a sound to Ufl heard, wluon a low, sob blng, walllng sound ls heard outside tho wlnd'ow. The curtains aro thrown aslde and a tall whlte flgure is seon standing wlthln. Plcture Tom as he stood there. Tho Ughts wero very, very dlm, his eyes glowlajf like ooals of flre, framed ln white, the trees outslda making a very wolrd background. Wlth the sobbing and walllng prodirced by some trlok known only to Tom himself, every eye was turned towards tho wlndow aa ho enter? ed. The love spell was forgotton iwnld plerclng sjirieks an4 confuelon, and tho dra*wln_-room was oloared Jn about a half. a mlnute. Jack alone stood lils iground, for ho had reoognUed hlm. After making s?u*o lt wob hlm he gets up and follows the rest to qulet them. Several of the glrls had falnted. Tom, seolng hls -un was about to rake . eerloua turn, throws uslde tho slieot and walks ln. lils seoond appearanco cnuaes almost as much oonf uelon a- hl. llrst, b u *. (iftor the axoltement weara off tlie appearance ot tha spook ls explalned, for ovoryono knowa what a jolly fellow Tom Garfleld ls. So wlth hlm the young* peoplo havo iv merry tlmo, Everyono wus sorry when lt was tlme to tto home, but livini*- lu hopes of meeting tho uext Ilul low.'en 1o have another niorry tlme. 1.031. ai*IL.DOlWSS. lEfIS Wlnder St,, Rlohmond, Va. s>eeococ>--Moe<?
