TOO GIDDY FOP. HCPt. '
Costume Shocked South Sea Ulander'o Sense of Modesty. When tlio Into Ulshop Solwyn flrat wont as a missionary to tho South Sea Islands ho found tho natives In various Islands very tractable. Tho fact however, that tho Islanders wont nb . aolutoly united caused the Rood bishop soma anxiety and ho resolved to direct part of his eflorts to get them to wear at least tho minimum of clothing. Ho therefore obtained some bright' ly colored calico anil lett It lying care lessly about his hut, knowing well that tho bright colors would soon attract tho attention of tho natives. An old natlvo lady soon afterwards called and "bishopy" allowed her to oyo tho cloth for somo time. At last ho picked up a piece, and, offering It to tho natlvo, said that ho would give it to her If she would wear it. Sho departed In great glee, but re turned tho following day with a down cast look, and tho cloth neatly rolled up. Handing It back to tho astonished missionary, sho said, "Mo no wear that, bishopy; me too shy!" Stray Stories. Good News From Minnesota. I Lakcilold, Minn., Jan. 4. Mr. Wll- I ' Ham E.

(Copyrliht. 1WI, by Doild, Mead & Company. All tlilita tctennl) CHAPTER VII. -(Continued.) "Cromwell wants only that Parlia ment should know Its own mind, and dcclaro Itwlf dissolved. God knows It Is high time, but Vnnc. and more with hm, would sit while life lasts. Martini, my heart Is troubled within mo. Havo wo got rid of one tyrant calling himself King, to glvo obedi ence to a hundred tyrants calling thomsolves Parliament? It shall not be so. As the Lord llveth, vorlly, It shall not!" Thoro was a meeting of tho Coun cil at tho Speaker's house tho night after Israel Swnffhain's Indignant pro test against Parliament, and Crom well, sitting among those hclf-scoklng men, was scornfully angry nt tholr deliberations.' Ills' passion for public and social justice burned, and lu a thunderous speech, lit by flnshos of blinding wrath, ho spoko out of n full and determined heart. Then he mounted his horso and rodo homeward. CHAPTER VIII. Upon the Threshold. If wo bollovo that llfo Is worth Hv Ing, our belief helps to crcato that fact, for faith Is In matters of tho spirit all thnt courago Is In practical affairs. To Jane and Cluny this be lief was not difficult, for limitation always works for happiness, nnd dur ing tho ensuing year llfo kept within tho bounds of their mutual probation and of Cluny's military duties, was full of happy meetings nnd partings; days In which Lovo waited on Duty, and ngnln, days In which Lovo was lord of every hour; when they wander ed together lu tho Park llko two happy children, or, If tlio weather was unfit, snt dreaming in tho stately rooms of Sandys about tho little gray house In Flfesliirc, which was to bo tholr own sweet homo. So tho weeks nnd months went by, and though thoy wero not nllko, they had that happy dmllltudo which leaves llttlo to chronicle. Jane's chief oxcltomeuts camo from her vIsltB to Mary Cromwell and Mntllda do WIclc. The affection between Jano and Matilda had tho strong root of habit as well as of Inclination. Thoy could not bo hapty If thoy wero long apart. Jano visited frequently nt Jovory House, and Mntllda qulta as fre quently nt Sandys. Ono morning in tho spring of 1G53, Jano was roturnlng from a two days' visit to tho Cromwolls. Tho air was so fresh and balmy sho wont to Jov ory Houbo, ro8olved to ask Matilda to drlvo In tho Park with her. As alio went upstnlrB sho wondered what mood alio would find Matilda In, for thoro was a certain mental ploasuro In tho uncertainty of hor friend's loin por. Sho found hor lying upon a sofn In hor clmmbor, hor llttlo foot, pret tily shod In Biitln, showing just bolow her gown; hor hands claspod abovo her head, hor long black hair scatter ed loosely on tho pillow. Sho smiled languidly as Jano enterod, aud thon said: "I havo been expecting you, June. I coud not keep tho thought of you out of ray mind, nnd by that token I know you wore coming. Prny, whoro havo you been? Or, whero aro you golng7" "I havo been spending two days with tho Cromwells, nnd tho morning Is so fair, I wondered If you would not drlvo an hour in tho park. Do you know that Cyralln arrives from Iro land to-day? Ho would think tho journoy woll taken, If ho saw you at tho end of It" "You aro a llttlo Into with your nous, Jane That Is one of your faultn. Cymlln was here last night. He spent a couplo of hours with mo," then sho smiled co peculiarly, Juno could not help asking her: "What Is thoro In your way of smil ing, Matilda? 1 am sure It means a story of ionio kind. ' "I Hhtill havo to tell you tho story, for you could never guoss what that Biullu waH mado of. Korst, however, what did ou see and hear at the Cromwolls." "I heard lu n passing uiiuiuur that Prince Rupert Is on the sons forovor that ho Is nt the French court, whore ho Is much mado of." ".Inno Swaffhnm, havo you no fresh er news?" nnd sho pullod out of her bosom ninny shoots of pnpor tied to gether with a gold thread. "I had this yesterday," sho said, "by the hand of Stephen, and I may as well toll you to prepare to moot Stephen do WIclc, for ho vows ho will not leave Englnnil again until he has speech with you." "Then ho Is forsworn; 1 will not Bee him." "It will bo no treason now to spenU to your old servant. Tho Amnesty Act will cover you. Hut I light not Stephen's battles; I havo enough to do to keep my own shnio of your friendship from fraying. Now, I must toll you bomcthlng concerning my solf. I am going to Franco." "Franco!" cried Jano In amazement. "Yes, Franco. I havu porr'iaded ni uncle thnt ho ought to go there, nnd look after liis affairs. I hnvo pcrsuad od my aunt that It Is not unto for my uncle to go without her, and they both know my reason for going with them, although wo do not nnmo Prince Kuport." "When do you go, Matilda?" "To-morrow, If Stephen bo ready. And let mo tell you, Jano, Stephen's readiness depends on you." "That Is not so." "It Is. I hopo you will bo definite, Jane. You havo kept poor Stephen i "I wish to see your face no more." dangling uftcr you slnco you wcro ton yenrs old." "What nbout Cymlln and yoursolf?" Then Matilda laughed, and hor countennnco changed, and sho snld seriously, "Upon my word and honor, I wns novor nearer loving Cymlln than I was last night, yet ho was novor Iohb deserving of It. 'Tls a good story, Jano. I will not pretend to keep It from you, though I would stnko my last coin on Cymlln's sllenco about the matter. Ho camo Into my prosonco, as ho always iIoob, III nt ease, and why, I know not, for n mnii moro handsome In face and llguro It would not bo oasy to find In England. Hut ho has bad maunors, Jano, confoes It; ho blushes and stumblos ovor things, and lou hU kerchief fall, nnd when ho trios to lie a gallant, m altos a fool of hlmsolf." "You uro tnlklng of my brothor, Ma tilda, and you aro making him ridicu lous, a thing Cymlln is not, and never was." "Walt u bit, Jano. I was kind to him, and ho told mo about his llfo In Ireland, nnd ho spoko so woll, and lookod so propor, that I could not holp but show him how ho pleased mo. Thon ho wont beyond his usual jnnn nor, nnd In leaving trlod to glvo mo a bow and a log in perfect court fash ion; nnd ho mndo a silly apponranco, nnd for tho llfo of mo I could not holp a smile not a nlco smllo, Jano, In deed, 'twas a very scornful smllo, and ho cnught mo at It, and what do yon thipk ho did?" "I daro say ho told you plainly that you wero behaving badly?" "My dear Jane, he turned back, ho walked straight to me and boxed my H ears, for 'a Hilly child that did not H know tho dlffrmire between n man H and a coxcomb.' I swenr to you thnt I jH was struck dumb, mid ho hat! taken H himself out of the room In a passion H oio I could flutl n word to throw after H him.
