BARBARA'S DIFFICULTY. ■ Hawkins owed a good deal to her etep-aaother could not have oooesaied from herself if aa a to of a fact that she ■or father** house had been a very tens o* discomfort during the dull interim between her own mother's death and the Boirai o i te youthful and winning stran ger who had been somehow persuaded by ! 'r'-f- Hawkins to "come and take keer toe tittle darter." The hittory of the next five years, in id grown from girl included all the gen uine sunshine of Barbara's life, and she *ew to whom that change and a good tf»ny othgr excellent things were due. _ '^oe the 'Squire had been gath 4 toTtii" father's, what a notable mana bad Widow Hawkins proved herself .«#t he very moderate property he had It was jurt there that the difficulty was bow c o min g in, for that which, with such good m a n age m ent, had kept the two women very nicely so long as they 1'ved **q**h«r, could continue to do so only '"** tuet that state of affairs. ~ S if set apart by itself, would r name for poverty. True, ai tor, or at least whioh the two nearest to a proper condition •ttstibn, would oare to "marry a iSn»w," and a step-mother at that, A-euSsawifo? "And she understands it," said Barbara to herself that September afternoon, "as well as I do. She's as polite to both of them aa if they were courting her I must say it's been very convenient onoe or twice, for they both like her. In fact, every body likes her, and that's what makes my position so very peculiar." The A very pretty girl waa Barbara Hawkins; prattler than her stepmother, and something; in spite of the years. A bit of a belle, too, was the "heiram" in that unambitious r means without characteristics which put the village goarip a , at times, in mmd of " 'Squire Hawkins' feet wife." At the present juncture, however, the publie Opinion of the Dorcas Society more'than usually perplexed. The best ledges of such matters " guem BO! Emmons is a leetle ahead," although this was sure to be followed by Iff* Murk, " But then, you know, Dan Gsotart he's am ta£*. widows' »unity, and by at a . in to inclined to ten dollar« to Bill's eight etiddier." in a worse quandary about it than the Dorcas Society knew how to be, for at timee ahe almost petted her heart of threatening an imper tinent interference before her head pould have a fair ohanoe. "She'd be ï not ighty , and titled to a third, I sup pooa." arifioquized the fair maiden, " and ■Wen wonderful hand with her needle. There's no danger lota of folka'd have has And Barbara did not know it, but a train of thought very nearly related to hear own waa at that moment passing through the mind of the widow, as ahe ■lapped lightly to and fro among the household duties of which she so kindly relieved her etep daughter. "I don't hear the piano," murmured the soft, low voioe of the widow, "and ytt I know ahe wanted to practice that new piece. Young Emmons'll be here this evening. 1 ought not to say a word in such a matter. She's old enough to decide for herself, but why that Dan Grover's worth five hundred of him? not to mention hie big form, and that's something nowadays. I wouldn't put that in her head, however—not for ihe world. I've paid dearly enough for just that sort of a mistake. Better have rone out to servira or taken in sewing. That's what I may have to do when Barbara's married." Tha nett, tidy figure paused in the kitchen doorway as she said that, and a ■hade of radneos swept acroes her face. "live in the house, with Bill Emmons for the master of it?" "Not I, indeed! She won't have sense enough to settle on Dan Grover, I'm afraid. Would I stay, then, if she did? Not so long aa I oould earn at beg any other shelter!" The last exolamation came out with un neraeeary en er g y , and the widow caught up a broom and mpde an immediate as soit on te kitchen floor. The sweeping of her starving, be glad enough to with them." and live of 't she it Barbara's morning walk had carried her prat te fine old homestead of the , O rorare, now the rale property of the promut fondly representative, and «b* ^ noted only too pcecttely the renovating and be autif y in g process on which Dan the proceeds of that ! j very unnecessary in Barbara had clearly misunderstood her *top-mote * ,and te widow bad also failed to penetrate te mind of the 'Squire's pr e tty and sensible representative. only too good a reason why the sheet of musio forwarded by Mr. Emmons had r«waived so little attention There that afternoon. year's wheat crop. n arms, 'she know, about te extravagant waste with whi ch te old-fashioned interior was transforming. Mor* than one village critic had added to ktt other valuable thoughts the surmise, "Looks kinder bad for Bill Emmons;" and Barbara henetf oould have assured of their reasoning, too kind-hearted, however, not too add to herself : "Bo much the better, too, for Mrs. Hawkins. Neither Dan nor 1 would object to her living at the old ptaoa till we oould find a buyer. I only . wish aha oould mbs the money and bay it heraelf."

She wouldn't be in the way at all.'' But vain waa all be could say or do, except that Barbara's vision of the Grover farm and house may haVe receded some what aa ehe listened to the pleading of her sailor. She aim oat hoped Dan might not come that evening, for not only the pres ent situation had ita charms, te it might have its perils as weU. Dan Grover was not a man to be trifled with, she knew, for all his quiet, self-contained ways. And so it was with something of a feel» ing of relief that Barbara listened, at last, to the bar of the big kitchen clockstriking nine. It was at the same instant that the shadow* of two who were walking side by side in the moonlight feH on the gate in a singularly unified manner ; and then, as the gate opened, Barbara sprang to her feet with a slight exolamation. She bad been sitting close to the low window-seat, and she had not seen fit, or hsd forgotten, to light a lamp. There may or there may not have been any cause for surprise, but the way of it had been this : N things out of the way than Mrs Hawkins remembered an errand she had in the vil lage, and had slipped quietly out to per form It. Nor would no simple matter have taken two long hours, but that, just aa the widow was stopping across the little footbridge at the brook, the form of a tall, broad-shouldered, vigorous man of, say, thirty-five summers, stood before her, and a deep voice remarked : "Bight about face, please. I want a bit of a talk with you, and there'd be no chance for it at the house." Not a word said the widow, as Dan Grover drew her arm in his, but ehe thought, "If h# wants to Barbara, he's right, for Bill must be there by this time ! What a fool she is ! He don't begin to compare with Dan.' It must be confessed, however ,that it seemed wonderfully pleasant, Dan turned up the shadowy lane toward the grove, and when he seemed disposed to put off his express business and to talk of the farm and the house, and lastly of himself. "I have £v the tea o sooner of mono when around me fixed as I oould ask for," he remarked, at length; "bnt I grow lonesome every day. The tact to, I've determined to have a wife, if I can get the one I want ; but there's only one in all the wide world. I'd be lonelier »than I am now with any other." » . "Why don't you speak to her then?" eaid the widow, with a half-choked feeling in her throat She's a very sensible girl, but I don't think it would be right for to try to influence her. I believe a woman has no right to marry without loving." Quick as lightning—very different from Dan's ordinary calm, slow style—was his responsive query: "Have you always been of that opinion ? Have you acted it?" The his arm was jerked away instant, and Barabara'a step-mother was almost sobbing with angry ana wounded feelings, m she stepped back from him, exclaiming, "How dare you! What have you to do with that? Ask Barabara for her secrets, if you wilL Mine are my own." "Exactly," responded the steady-minded Dan, but his voice was shaken now in spite of his self-control "You have told me part of your secret, Marian Hawkins, whether you meant to or not I knew you could never have loved him. Now I will woman tell you mine. Yen without whom I must forever be lonely. You have been only too faithful to Barbara, before." Rapid, earnest, passionate, grew the strong man's words as he uttered them, e closed with a sudden forward movement. Before the widow knew it, Dan's tears betrayed her. It was too late for Dan have his fellow he was too. And when at last the going homeward, their the you would hpve Been it around her, and even her ny thing but to let Such a willful way widow insisted arrival at the gate was signalized by just such another theft as he nad perpetrated twenty timee already, for Barbaras excla mation had been simply, "Kissed her !" Never was a lamp lit so quickly in all the world before ; but, between the find ing and the scratching of the match, Bill Emmons managed to my—for he was a fellow of excellent mind—"Perhaps, Bar bara, that may remove some of culties." And Barbara made no reply ; but when Dan and the widow came into the parlor, it was not easy to say which of the two women was blushing most violently. "It's all right, Bill," remarked , "I don't know that any explanations are required. You have consent." The virions of te newlv-painted house had fainted from the mind of Barbara ! Hawkins, but ft wra Dan's remark that j called her attention to te maimer hi diffl Dan. entire Emmons. The latter was equal oooaaion, however, for he replied : " Well, so long as I've got Barbara's I don't mind having yours and then he added quickly, "I say, Dan, you and I are two fellow* of remarkably good setae.

PXBMANENT EXHIBITION QUEUE*.

To answer my own question I should say there are (leaving Sunday ' >g out of the discussion for the t) but two things to be done: organize frequent excursions from surrounding parts, and 2d, to enlarge the entertainments given. mmmu !. To points are vitaL As to the Aral, some thing has been already done, and word to given of other work in the direction; the great receipts must oomt that way if at aU. The second point is more difflîml» The building to not suited for theatricals ; instrumental music by itself is not sufficient, and vocal musio (except chorus singing) is out of plaoe. There might be floors for danoing, though that might offend some people. Or to manage. l might be tableaux oh a barred by natural limitation, but things of the kind mentioned might be attempted. The risk of fireworks would be too great, besides which the building would have to be darkened, and that would not be the thing for various reasons. If prejudice could be overborne would be one of the surest of schemes,for in that the performance would be given by the public itself, and experience teaches that men like the thing« beet which they have an individual h^ml in. To make the Main Building popular in this way, and select at the would be to make the fortune of te exhi bition. On these two points however, of excursion parties and enlarged amuse ments, depends the success of te enterprise. MULLEN OOUBT. somehow here, whimsically re minded of the William J.
