Bartholomew Brown, or Bachelor Brown as the neighbors called him, ! That was one of the family was in a quandary. His Aunt Abbie. who for twenty years had kept house for him. had left In a fit of anger a week before, declaring that she would never come back, and Brown knew only too well that she would keep her word. ■characteristics of the Browns—they always kept their word. Aunt Abbie was a Brown. At the moment upon which our story i opens Bachelor Brawn was ruefully contemplating a loaf of bread which I even Mr. Brown was willing to admit was not an improvement on that which Aunt Abbie used to make, wondering whether It was beet to get It patented as a new style of He was pavtng block or to chop it up with a hatchet and attempt to eat it. the bread himself. Looks as If 1 missed it somehow that baking. I s'pose I could eat It If I tried hard, but a fellow might as well starve to death as die ot indigestion. Guess I'll have to fall back on baker's bread for the present. About as soon eat a basswood chip. He had made on "Mighty sorry Aunt Abbie got her back up and lit out—or no, 1 ain't either.

Then moistening his right ! fore-finger he gently touched the hot 1 Iron with it just as Aunt Abbie used to do; but instead of instantly with- : drawing the finger he clumsily pressed it against the sizzling metal until It scorched his flesh. With a howl ot agony he dronned the flat-iron—an eight-pounder at that_on his foot This was the first time in years that Bartholomew Brown had done any swearing, but he went at it like an old hand. A tln-pedd'er is not easily frightened as a rule, but one happened along while Brown was In the midst of his eruption, climbed down from his cart and approached the kitchen door. He got about half way up the walk—and then he stopped and ]],. tened. Just a moment; and then h e turned pale, and whirling on his heels went flying back down the walk. At every farm-house he visited dur the remainder of the day the ped dler told a thrilling tale of his narrow e8ca Pe fr °m an encounter with "a raging maniac in a big. white house, a ways back." Meantime Bachelor Brown, all un conscious that bis fame was being her aided abroad in the land, had cooled down somewhat, bad tied his burnt finger up ln a greased rag, and was making another heroic attempt at ironing. There came a ring at the doorbell. "Great Peters!" he groaned. "Wonder who that can be at the door? Bet Its a book-agent, and like as not she has heard me tearing around here and swearing.
