I am no farm er." The tone had no note of dis couragement; it had rather the ring of success. Mrs. Herring looked up from her sewing. Richard had never said "must" to her before. "What is the matter, Richard?'' She looked at him searchingly. "1 want to go to college. I shall never do anything at farming, but i might at something else if I had tiie chance." He spoke impersonally, as if they were talking of some one else. "Well, perhaps it is the best thing to do." Mrs. Herring sewed on for a few minutes in silence; then she said slowly, as if the plan were forming itself: "I guess Tom Rlsliop would take the farm on shares and they could go to housekeeping in the L parC The rent would bring in a lit tle something. He and Mary have wanted to go to housekeeping ever since they were married." She ended with a questioning inflection, submit ting tiie plan. She was not a "capable" woman.

Almost with out volition lier mind had begun to turn over ways and means to meet tills new emergency. "I could let them have the south chamber and the back storeroom. And perhaps we could pack up the tilings In father's room so they could have that." The young man listened in surprise. He had expected remonstrance, even refusal. He was not prepared for such rapid furthering of his project. He was almost inclined to make obstacles himself—so rapidly did she plan. "Father Crane would be pleased, if he were alive, to know you wanted to go. He always wanted Eben to go to college. Rut he married Jerusha. They all said he ought to have been a scholar. He was bright at his books. Rut he was possessed to marry Jeru sha. So father had to give it up. He always wanted me to go to school more, too. It was a disappointment ; to him that I married so young." i She sat looking thoughtfully out of the narrow-paned window, lost in thought of that far-off time when she 1 " as collrtf ' f l an, l won hy Marcus Derr Ing. Richard, the Greek grammar in his hand, stole softly out of the room and climbed the steep stairway. He went quickly down the long hall and opened a door at the end. The room thus dis slosed was a curious one. Across one side ran a sloping shelf, broken at one end by a zinc-lined sink. The oth er sides of the room were filled with cabinets in which were arranged specimens of rock, chemicals, blow-1 pipes, and many curious contrivances, the use of which Richard could not even guess. In this room Geoffrey j Crane had lived and dreamed and J died. Here, in the midst of his herlt age, the boy sat down to begin the work that should make him what his grandfather would have wished. But instead of opening tiie brown J covered book he sat with it in his J hand, thinking of the new life its ; thinking of the new life its pages 1 were to open up to him. Life crowded before him. College—-new faces—new friends—study—success. And Emily would be—she would not know—or care. She would marry Edwards. She would not know whether he succeeded or failed. Was it worth- while? Something flashed upon him and startled him. If she had cared, he should not now be planning a new life. I "I should have been as happy as Uncle Eben," he thought with a hall smile. To-day he did not resent the implied He was not disloyalty to his idol, thinking of her so much as of Love, the power that holds all men in its .grasp and bends them to its will, till «ach soul longs for nothing so much jhs that Love shall take human shape and dwell beside him. Dimly it flitted before him—luminous but indefinable —filling him with wonder. Uncle Eben married the woman he loved and his life had been dwarfed. Seth Kinney lost the woman he loved, and his life was warped, distorted, and spoiled. Was it fate? love was hard and cold. Life without He opened the grammar and began to read.

At breakfast next morning his moth er faced him over her coffee-cup, stern and less ready. "I have been going over the accounts ail night." She spoke in a voice that was half com plaint. "I don't see how we can man age it. The interest is a hundred and eighty-six and the taxes thirty-five, and there is never anything left at the end of the year, even as it is now." She looked at him, her dark eyes weary with the night's work. His own eyes flashed back u still light. "1 shall do it some way, moth er. Don't worry." She shook lier head, choking back ! something in her throat. "Your fa ther would have wanted you to—if lie had lived—" She rose quickly and turned away to the pantry.

"And if 1 find I can't study and earn, too, /'ll stop till I get enough to go on. It Isn't as if 1 were good for much—" He looked at her, waiting. "No, no—have your way. You've never asked for what you hadn't ought to have. It's true enough you'll never be a farmer." She stood for a mo ment, one hand holding the plates and , cups, the other resting on the table, i, looking at him fondly. Then she, turned''brusquely awav to the sink. !

One rainy day recently, a young lawyer, thinking lie would like to take a little flyer in stocks, called at the office of his broker, who happened to be his most intimate friend. When he reached the office a new clerk whom he had never seen before told him that the broker was engaged, but would be at liberty in a few minutes. While sitting idly in the waiting room the young lawyer noticed something that made his eyes almost drop out, The gloom of the day necessitated the use of artificial light in the broker's private office. Silhouetted upon the ground glass partition between the two rooms the lawyer saw the shad ows of a man and a woman. They were both seated, the broker at his desk and the woman beside and fac ing him. Every moment or so the lips of the shadows seemed to meet affectionately, profile of the woman struck the law on yer as strangely familiar, I instantly and threw open the door, Sure enough it was his wife, but she was sitting decorously in a chair two or three feet from the broker, but almost in line with him, engaged In an animated discussion. Both looked up at the Intrusion, but Is Is Something about the He rose beneath his vigorous tread. The ax was shifted from side to side, as he walked, and the free arm swung across his chest. He struck into the wood-road with a song and hallooed to the stillness. The love-sick boy of yesterday was gone. Taking oft his cap he called and sang till the blue jays forgot to be frightened and hov ered, curious, in the trees overhead. He took oft his cap to them, looking up through tiie tree-tops to the blue shimmer of sky. He swung the cap around his head and they darted away —a blue and white clatter of sound. He replaced it, laughing softly. The earth was alive. He reached out to the bushes as he passed, trail ing the budded stems through his fin gers and brushing the purple-brown oak leaves with swiftest touch. When he came to the tree that he was to cut he ran his palm up and down its rough bark before he seized his ax and swung it clear from his shoulder. The blows rang even and hard, and with every blow he drove home the first declension of the Greek gram mar. Every clay found him at work in the woods. Soon Tom Bishop joined him and the cross-cut saw flashed to its work in the trunks. Richard, to th<* tune of its monotonous seesaw, sang Greek verbs and declined nouns—till Tom caught the rhythm and chanted declensions in sheer self-defence.
