It ain't safe for you to bo coraing up through tho woods after dark all alono that way. Stny all night, if you ilnd it getting lutol" "Ou! I ain't afraidl" nverrcd Mrs. Buckler, atoutly. "I rnny get back nforo dark; but if I don't, I'll bo care ful and carty n light wilh mo!" Theee coufldent worda she flung back ovor hor shoulder, as stfo atarted gayly down tho rough woodland way. Arriving in duo tirao at tho aettle ment in the Valley, aho did her errands, picked up tho news, and richly enjoyed the rnre luxury of a goaaip. Timo went all too quickly; and it waa on tho edge of dark ero aho thought of atarting for homo. Then, of courso, thoro wero ve hement proteata. Her frionds urged her to etay all night, picturing the perila of tho journey, nnd lepreaentinc thnt her huaband would never drenm of expecting her. But Mre. Buckler, aa her friend8 alwaya eaid, wns very "sot." Futting neide nll nrgumenta, she atarted out on her long and lonely tramp. Sho had little to carry, but that little waa somewhat troubleaomo to manago. It was an apronful of sweet appleB for the children, a treat which sho knew thoy would enjoy. Sweet apples woro then a rarity in South Mountain. When at length Mrs. Buckler roached tho laat hou80 on tho edge of tho Val ley, and found herself faco to faco with the long climb up tho mountain, sho felt compclled to acknowledge in hor heart that the night waa very dark. And eho had yet uearly four milea to go, through almost unbroken wooda. Iu thoae four mileB thero were but two cabina to break the monotouy of tho way; and thc furlher of tlieao waa a milo nnd n half from her homo. Sho heailated a uioraeut, then went into the houae, and naked for a pine-knot to light her on her journey. Ilere ugaiu aho was urged to atay; but lighting her lorch sho aet her faco reaolutely to the mountain eide. A8 aho penctratcd among the ancieut trees the unsteady light of the pine-knot caBt slraugely moving shadowa, and monetrous ehapea aeemed to apring up nnd disappear on all aidea. For tho flret timo aho grew nervous, and felt an inclination to glanco over her shoul der. Tliis aho preaently conquered, with aonie scorn. Nevertheleas, aho could not holp haateniug her stopa; and tho iirat cabin in the mountain had tho air of n refuge to her, ns aho turned in to get a fresh pine-knot. Ilere, top, ahe was strongly presaed to end her journey for the night. But now her obstinaey wbb well aroused. She waa nettled at heraelf for haviug felt afraid. It was with aotueihing of tho atr of one who goea forth to battle tlat ahe gripped her torch aud clulchud her apron of sweet applea, aa aho tuined again to tho blackncaa of the forcat path. To ward off unpleaeant thoughta, ahe kept picturing in her mind tho way the children would enjoy the applea in tho moruing. She also thought of the re monBtrancea, tempered with ill con cealed udmiration, with which her hua band would greet her return. Her blood quite glowed again aa aho thought of the lofty faahion in which ahe would make light of it nll. Juat at this nio mentahe saw, in the middle of tho path before hor, a large black bear, watch ing hor curiously. II er heart stood atill, and ahe her aelf inatantly followed tliis oxample. 1 1 IIow much business cau a raan n o whose systciu is in a statc of disordcr? Hcadache '.s only a symptoui.

Slowly eho movcd for wnrd ngnin, wnving hor torch; nnd tho boar, atcpping out of tho path, wntched hor atendlly from nmong tho under bruah ns sho wont by. Then ho atoppcd back into tho pnth and followed hor. Ilor flrat nnd moat nnturnl irapulao wbs to tun liko tho wind for homo, but thls, nftcr ono atnrtled lenp forwnrd, aho checkcd with n mighty effort of her will. Sho wolked on with awift but etondy stopa, wntching tho bcnr out of tho corncr of her oyo, but nll tho timo clulching obatinntely at hor apronful of applea. Tho bcnr, very slowly, kept (irawmg ciosor anu cioacr, ooni upon nttncking, but evitlontly detorrcd by urcau 01 tlio lorcu. Botwcen thia cnbin nnd tho next tho di8tnnco waa but half n milo. Hor ncrves woro now getting ao well atendied thnt aho no longor cared for tho loom ing nnd ahifting ahadows, till nt longth n ahadow diatinctly amallor than tho reat mado tho uuderbruah ruatlo nudl bly with ila motion. Her heart gavo a most uncomfortablo lcnp, nnd aho atrnightway thought of tho wolf which her huaband hnd apokcn of. But, wolf or annuow, u ueu nwny without monac ing hor: nnd aho cnmo in enfoty to tho laat cabin betweon hor nnd homo. Hero tho ncighbore wero naleop, nnd sho hnd to nrouso them in order to beg anothcr plnc-knot. Thc ono which sho hnd got nt tho provioua houso wns by no menns burned out, but sho fcnred leat it ahould fail beforo tho cnd of her journey. Tho aleopy neighbora wero aatoniabcd at hor appcaranco. Thoy turealonca to uotain uer by force. when aho refuacd their iuvitation to atay nll nigiit witu luem. iiixi Mra. Buckler was by thia timo a good denl"worked un," aa aho aftcrward cxnreeaed her- Bilf; nnd eho trentcd thcir kind per auasiona with ecant Jcurtesy. She al- moat, ran irom tno nouao; out in ner apron, among tho awcot applea, aho carricd tho cxtrn pino knct, all the sarac. But tho torch, mennwhilo, waa burn ing low; and Mra. Buckler, iu her rx citement, failed at lirat to notico tliis. Sho washolding tho pine-knot ovcr her ahoulder, na n sort of ahicld ngainat her pureuer. AVhen, with a shakiug at tho knecs, aho realized that it was on tho pointof llickering out, sho tried haBlily to light tho other; and in tho cffort aomo of hcr trcaaured applea fell out of her apron, and rolled bchiud hor on the path. Aa aoon na tho bear camo to thoae applea he Btonpcd, nnd begnn dovour ing them with the kceueat reliah. " Whyl " though, Mrs. Buckler, with a audden lightening of her load of tcr ror; " it's not me he's nfter, but tho aweet npplesl " nnd atrnightway all hor old courago returned. She paused, and took timo to light her new pine-knot deliberately and well. Then aho hurried on; and it waa aome minutca beforo her pureuer was again at her hcels. And now, so audden nro tho revul sions of a womau's fcelings, she waa concerned only for tho aweet applea. Thoy wero tho children's npples; nnd it went aorely ngninat her grnin to let n benr hnvo nny of them. Not until ho had como moat uncomfortably cloao could aho bring heraelf to ngain pro pitiato him; and then eho doled out but threo of tho precioua green globes, dropping them on tho pnth behind hcr with slow reluctance. Tho animal took perhnps n qunrter of a minute to disposo of tliis nig gardly contribution, nnd then camo on ngain with n sort of hopeful confldonce. " Nol" declared Mra. Buckler, flrm y, " you ain't goiu' to havo nnother onel" and she fairly broko into a run. But when that heavy, shambling gal lop soundcd close at hor back, her reso lution weakened, aud eho droppcd n couplo moro out of tho npron. Whilo tho much-gratitled bear delaycd to cnt these, aho rounded u turu of the rond, nnd was gladdened by tho sight of her own window glimmoring somotwohuu dred yards in front. Calliug hcr hueband's namo two or threo times at tho top of her voico, till sho snw him iling open tho door nnd rusb out to meet her, sho hugged tho remnant of tho applea to her brenat, llung hor torch nt tho bear, nnd aped like n deor toward the hoube. AVhether tho benr followed her further or not, ahe nbver knew. It certaiuly did not come near enough to the houae for her huaband to calch aight of it, for, aa aho flung heraelf into hia arnia, pauting, triumphant, halfway betVeeu laughter nnU leara, ne aakeu uer wuat waa the raatter. " Mutterl" she cried, indignantly, "That'o juat like a raau, after all 1'vo gone tbiough to got honiel" Aud sho pulleu uim vit'lautly into the houae anu alammed tbu door. Stovo Buckler waa nuilo too judicioua to remind her of tho luct that ho had urged her either to como homo beforo dark, or else atav all night, He did not even let lt appear 111 tiia taco for au in- ataut that he thought of such n thing. lle llaleneu to the atory wilh all tho breathleas excitemcnt that aho had nu licipaled, praiaed her bravery nnd re sourco, vowed to Bhoot tho benr next day, ato ono of tho aweet applea, and baing very aleepy, went to bed.

All aorts of food, ea peclnlly tho diffcront kinds of meat, need to bo vnried. Even roast lamb palls upon tho nppetito whon eorvcd too often in just tho samo stylc. Too much roaat pork ia not conaidored wholc8omo, alihough nccompanied by tho indiepcnaablo applc-aaucc. Mnny will not touch pork nt oll, unleaa thoy " know tho pig," nud roast beof of tho bcst gets to bo au " old story " nfter n whilo. Poultry is not alwnys within ronch, aa to plnco or prico. To mako n aubatnntial nnd sntiefac tory dish from what ia left over from rcgular roaata is indeed quito nn ntt. nud opens tho wny for somo moat iu- tcrcsting exporiments in cookeiy, ns wtll ns for tho preaentntiou of aomo mott delicioua aud attractivo diahea. If fow nro to bo Bcrvcd, or but littlo meat i3 wauted, a forequnrlcr of lamb will uo tor roaating, aud tho meat ia very eweet, for tho " nearer tho bone, tho ewcetcr tho meat" ia a truo old ndago, but it ia poor economy to pay for much bone. So the les of lamb, wilh tho bouo taken out, and put in ron3ting ahnpo by tho butcher, ia by far tho eaeier and moro protitable way to inveat iu thia particular meat. StuQlng tho leg give8 n variely, but without thia wo auppoao it roasted, well done, nnd plenty of rich brown grnvy lo go with it, nnd bo left, with what is not uaed, nt tho flrat aerv- ing. Tho next day's dinner cnn bo mndo very nceentnblo bv tlicinir. rnlher thickly, and across tho grain, of courso, tho cold lamb, covering it with tho browu gravy, nnd mnkinir it verv hot. ns to cookit would only mnko it tough. lt is very easy to aervo thia wnv. taatea differently from tho original roaat, and is oiten preierreu to it. More ineat would vet be left from n log of lamb, of modernto weight, in n fnmily of aix. Tho homely, ragged parts left can bo utilized in many wnys for brenkfast diahes. When flnelv chopped, nnd bartly moiatcned in aomo ot tno Drown gravy, it mnkea a moat dclicious hasb.plain or servedon toast. nnd eomo of tho chopped lamb, hold logoiner uy nn egg nnu a llttlo maahed potato, mako a diah of croquettea that no ono will obiect to. Tho butcher upon requeet will aend homo the bonea, with the meat, which will mnko tho foundntion for mnnv a kind of aoun. So n leg of lnmb ia n most economical lnvestment, anu ono noed not wenry of tho roaat either. A round steak can bo treated ao that it will mako a nice and handsome din ner diah ns nceentnblo nuito aa a roaat. Get a thick alico from tho teuder part of the round. Trim off all the fat and cut it in Bmall bits to put under tho meat, in tho oven. Trim tho meat to a long oval in shapo that it inay look weu. iay it lor a coudio of Uours on a plattnr, with n half n cupful of vinegar under it, and nnother half a cunful of vinegar over it.

Lay tho steak iu n dripping pan, with tho chopped bi'.s of fat uuder it. Spread tho droaaing amoothly all over tho top of tho meat, placo it in a hot oven aud bnke twenty miuutea, or n littlo moro if tho etenk is very thick.
