Through the opeq windows came glimpse of green wood becakfng a delicious coolness aud the ripple of brooks, but In the schoolroom the air was undeniably close. The scratch of a pencil, the shuffling of Impatient little feet, the drone of a Isiy bee, all teemed to In tensify the Impression of beat, ami the young schoolmaster stirred restlessly. It bad meant a great deal to Peter Raymond, securing the Tillage school at Wlmberty. but be bad not found bis task an easy one. Ills eyes, wandering over the rows of bent beads before blm, encountered the glance of a girl seated near the door. The glrL oue of the old er scholars, with a toss of her curls, returned to her book, aud tbe trouble In tbe schoolmaster's face deepened. Here was the cms of the situation. If be could win Miranda Hemming to bis side the remainder of the pupils would follow easily tnough. Hut It waa Mi randa herself, with her great blue eyes, fetching dimples aud coquettish ways. t who openly led the revolt against Uiiu. Tbe teacher sighed sgnln. Perhaps be was too young. From the very tcglnnlug of bis work, however, Itsynioiid hud recognized the primitive Instinct of hostility to the un known la tho questioning eye uplifted to bis owu. Now, after live weeks, be seemed uo nearer the solution of bis problem; lndeeiL, mstters uuiler Miran da's spirited guidance were becoming even worse, despite his fMilntel Ignor ing of l r mutiny, lie tout bed the bell.

Then something in the teacher's expression caused her to sluk back In her seat, tingling aud ahahel. It took an unusually long time for the pupils to diserse tlmt day. but at last they were all gone. "You need not think that I shall study that lesson." she declsred with sharp emphasis. Kaymond nodded. "As you please," be answered. "t)nly here we Imtb stay uutil you do." "And I'm not to have any supper?" Incredulously. "Not until you learn that lesson." "ltut" burst out Miranda furious ly. Then she closed her lips with a snap and lenued back, ber bands tern letuouly folded before ber. Kay mond picked up a book. "Take your own time," be said pleas nutly. Hut somehow- the book did not prove wry enthralling. ltd ween bis eyes ami the printed pages crixtcd the vlslou of a willful little face set lu IU tangle of wavy balr. Yet he must not be beaten now. His whole future hung on this lue, be thought. Tbe shad ows lengthened, the suu dropped be hind the hills. Miranda, w ho for some time hsd been stealing furtive glances at the quiet figure behind the big desk smiled prettily. "I'm I'm buugry," she wheedled. For an lustant ltaytnond wavered. Ttils new sweetness was strange aud alluring. Hut before he could speak tho door was flung opeu and Tom t'nr ruthcrs appeared on the threshold. "Ben't yo cotuiu' home to super, Mlrandy t" be demaml.il. "Y'tr ma scut me fcr ye." darting a auspicious look at ber Jailer. "Ain't ye comln'? I'll look out fer ye." "Why." began Miranda feebly. Kay mond, a sudden, unaccountable resent ment surging into bis heart, frowned. "Miss Miranda Is In no need of a champion." be declared stiffly. "She can leave when she chooses. You may- go." And Tom. after an Instant's scowling hesitation, went oat. banging the door. Miranda bit ber Hp. "I will never Warn that lesson," the repeated atobbornly. There waa another long alienee while tbe shadows darkened. At last the young man rose and lit tbe lamp. "It Is nearly V o'clock." be said brief ly. Miranda, now close upon tears, looked back still defiant "And If I aay It you'll let me got "Certainly." With rapid, choked utterances) tbe flung tbe teit at blm. not pausing for question or comment And then "I-1 bate you." abe cried vehement ly; "bate you, bate yon! And niaev er, never come Into tble horrid school room again!" Tbe bright drops shone la ber eyes like dew on forgetmenoU, ber cbeeka were Bushed to a wild rose plak; tbe girl waa shaken, puaaled. hurt Tbe village boys abe bad teased and ruled at will. For tbe first time abe bad found a man impervious alike to ber anger or smiles. From tbe day that be, a atranger, bad met ber eyes in calm unconcern abe bad uncon sciously resented tbe fact. Now tbe re pressed wrath of weeks found rent "I bate you," abe reiterated atormlly. The neat moment abe bad flashed through tbe door and waa gene. Kay mond, oddly depressed In spite of bla victory, followed alowly. Tbe world was flooded with tbe tran quil glory of the moonlight aa be went out. A narrow path led to tbe road where a row of maplee lifted their leafy branches to tbe starry skies, and Kaymond, fancying tint be caught the gleam of a white dress there under the trees, felt his heartbeats quicken. Somehow be had been looking forward to walking borne with tbe glrL sTben as he turned from locking the door a dark figure rushed by tho comer of the schoulbouse, there wss a woman's shrill scream, something heavy struck bis forehead, and Kaymond fell. It must have been ueurly an hour Inter when Kaymond and Miranda t.ped at the gate of the girl'e borne. Hearing footsteps. Mrs. Hemming come out to meet them. "Well." she said, "to I bear you've been having trouble with Mirandy. Tom was here in quite a state and wanted tne to Interfere. Hut I Judgul you knew bow to run your owu game," comfortably.

"Why are the doorkeeicrs of prisons always surly? 1 guess It Is Nvause they have to answer so ninny foolish questions," said a prison doorkeeer. "Only this morning a ring comes at the bell. I halt In the middle of my breakfast. I tramp down the long cor ridor. I unlock my fifty ton d.wr with my twenty jsitind key. Outside stands a tough young man, his bat ou the side of bis besd, w ho says: "'Hons, when'll Joe Msce get out? Me and auother feller's got a let on It.' "People come here and ask me when this prisoner's trial and that prisoner's trial take place. They come here with out permits and demand to see a pris oner w ith the same air as you'd go to a friend's house and demand to eee your friend. They bring present to prison ers boxen, of cigars, hot th-s of rum. scarfpina and oker dice.

In a book ou bis adventures lo Tibet Colonel I A. Waddcll writes; "One curious result of the cold should le mention. si here namely. Its effect upon the Sieis h of the jM-ople. A peculiar ity of the language of the Tibetans, In common with the Itnsslan and most arctic nations. Is the remarkably few vowels In their words aud the eitraor- dluarlly large numUr of consonants. For example, tho Tibetan name for Sikblm Is Ubrasljongs. Indeed, ao full of consonants are Tibetan words that most of them could be articulated with almost semlclosed mouth, evidently from the enforced necessity to keep the lips closed as fsr aa possible against tbe cutting cols' when speaking."
