So the winter wore nwny, nnd ns spring drew nigh upon our valley Dun can seemed to grow perturbed, even as he had been In the nuttnnn before Hetty went nwny. Duncan urged Sam to more his house Jnld from over the more to a house, lie pointed out that u separate residence distinctly belltted the dignity of a man who wns at once a prominent Inventor and one of Itadvllle's lending mer chants (vide a "rcrsonal" In the lute issue of the Kadville Citizen), to say j nollilng of the social position of his daughter meaning Hetty. And tho house Duncnn Imd his metn phot leal i eye upon was large enough t shatter ' Nat himself In addition to tho Gra- I ham family. Graham fell in with the scheme with, out a murmur of dubiety or dissent. Whatever Nat proposed in Ham's un derstanding was right and feasible, nnd oven If It wasn't really so Nat would ninko It so. They engaged the house nnd moved. Miss Ann .Sophron slim Whltraarsh, a maiden lady of forty-live or thereabouts, popularly known us "I'hrouy," hud been coming In by I ho day lo "do for" old Sam in the rooms above the shop.

And since she's so strong for you there's no hurry. Let her take her time." "t only wish she would." Duncnn removed one hand from the pocket the better to tiig at his mustache.

OSIE LOCKWOOD came homo again for the Kaster holidays, but she didn't return to finish her term In the New York school Just why we never discov ered. The I.ockwoods furnished us with no really satisfying explanation. They said that Josie didn't like New Y'ork, but I've always doubted that, es pecially since Josie married and in. slsted on moving straight away to that metropolis. I suspect she didn't get along with the class of young women with whom she was thrown at school, nnd I'm pretty certain she was uneasy about Nat all tho time she was so far him. It was during this period, between tho Kaster vacation and the end of the spring school term, that Holnnd Har nette's animosity toward Duncan be came virulent. Joule, of course, was prompt to oust Angle Tuthill from her place In the choir. After that she sang with Nat on Friday nights ns well as W ednes days and twice vr Sunday.

When George Washington wan horn, on February sj, In Vlrglnlu, ami for a toriK time afterword, children were not thought to ho nearly such Important people as they nro now, nnd thnt, per haps, Is one ot the reasons why, when Wis come to road the life nt Washington, we find mi little about h's boyhood. The historians tell us i gront I-:i1 Dbout tho butlle3 ho fought nnd tho ninny great and vise things he did after he was grown up. but they don't give tin very much of nn Idcn About the way ho spent . his time when he wns n llttlo boy. An I other reason for this alienee Is Hint I Washington didn't have very much boy hood. He wnrn t nny ol.ler than some, of the oiing folks who lend this pane when he wt nt in work ns a surve.xor for Lord Fairfax, .mil mil Voylng then m no child's play. Ho had to ride for miles with the IHtle band of assistants tbrourh tho wildest country, fording swollen end dangerous rl'-ers nnd sleeping around camp fires In the open woods.

After a few years of this Hie he was appointed to the olflee of major In the nilitt.i of Virginia, and hl elder brother dying shortly aftc-wiud he became the heo of the fi'tnlly, with a largo estate to administer. He was not yet twenty one, but be was nlrendy a man -if al fairs. In the midst of all bis responsibilities, however, he found time to eriloy hlni'-elf, and we are glad that he kept a di.iry, ! Irom which we ceil learn something 'about his amusements. He was vorv I fond of danoliK, and the diary shows that I ho frequently went to halls and routs. This taste for dancing he kept almost to the end of his lifo. During the lievo lullon he killed many weary hours by this means, and oner, while In winter quarters, he subscribed ill to get up a I scries of balls.

Duncan moved over to Traccy. nh face was entirely serious. "Traeey," ho said, dropping a hand on the boy's Khoulder, "do you know, nothing In life is harder to bear than not to be understood?" Traeey wrestled with this for a mo ment, but it was beyond him. "Then why the dickens don't you talk m'h folk; '11 know what it's about?" he demanded heatedly. "Iiecause-- hm!" Duncan hesitated, kith his enigmatic smile. "Well, be auso the rules don't require it." "What d' you mean by that?" Traeey xploded. Nnt couldn't explain, so he counter d neatly. "This Is oh of your An Slo evenings, isn't it, 'IVftcey?" "Yep, but" - "Well, you hurry alcng. I'll close up the shop." To Duncan, now rtmted on the edge of an upturned box In a corner ot tho store, caHie an idea. JIo drew a roll of bills from his pocket and stripped off the top one. "Here's he said to Traeey. "Girls can usually bo captured by Judicious expenditures. I wish you luck." "Ah, thanks, Mr, Duncan." "Hut. Traeey" The boy paused nt the door. "What?" "Itumembor what I told you.

Ab sorbed with his task, he thought him self quite alone until a well kenned voice reached his ear. "Well!" it said, unctuous with appre ciation of the sight of him. "Old Dr. Duncan!" He let the pestle fall from his hand and Jumped as If he had been stuck with a pin. His jaw dropped and his eyes bulged, "Great Scott!" he cried and in a twinkling was round the counter, throwing himself into the arms of a man wliom he hailed ecstat ically. "Harrj", by all that's wonder ful!" He fairly danced with delight. "Henry Kellogg, Ks-qulre!" he cried. holding him at arms' length and look ing him over. "What in thundera tlon are you doing here?" "On my way to Cincinnati on busi ness. Thought I'd drop off for a night and size you up. How are you?" "Me? Look at me picture of health. Harry, you've made a new man of me." Duncan pranced round his friend in a mild frenzy. "No booze, no smokes, no swears work! I feel like a two-year-old. I could do a Marathon without turning a hair. Watch me kick up my heels and neigh! And I for himself and Mrs. Washington on the ground that their dancing days were over. Anoihrr Interesting thing that we learn from t'.ie dlaty !s that he liked to be well dri-Kicd. When he was sixteen he made some very Interesting notes about tin; way bis coat was to be made, it was to have a "lapel bieat. the Inpel to con tain on each side six buttniiholos. and was to be about five or six in lies wldo. all tin way equal.''

A few ;.enr later he ordered "a 1 superfine blue broadcloth coat, with sal- mini trimmings," and many other such . oiiU-i-s might lie quoted. Hut these flno cluthes he wore only when they were not an Inconvenience.
