It was harvest time and the feast was about to commence. Giles was the oldest hand and the hostess, with beaming cordiality, mo tioned him to the seat by her right hand. But Giles remained silently un responsive. "Come," said the hostess, "don't he bashful, Mr. Giles''—he was just Giles on ordinary occasions—"you've a right to the place of honor, you know." Giles deliberated a moment, then spoke. "Thank you kindly, Mrs. Hodge," he said, "but if It's all the same tc you, I'd rather sit opposite this pud* den'!" Slightly Mixed.
