flectively; "an' whenever he died they
said ez how some'n his people'd hev

"Do ye mind," broke in Aunt Polly,
"how Sally Aim tuk on at the time
of he'r pappv's burjrin'? They wuz
makin' the coffin before our house,
an' she come in an' axed me ef thej

it, 'old box.' an' p'inted over whar
they wuz workin'. I tole her that
they alluz put dead corpses into
boxes, ez they called coffins, an' then
put a led on 'em 'fore they put 'em
in the ground an' kivered 'em up.
'Kiver up my pappy?' says she;
'they's afeared to kiver him up; he'll

"She knowed what buryin' meant
b\v the time her five sisters wuz tuk

"I reckin she did. Waal, I must be
gittin' home."
"Can't ye stay all night?"
"No; I'll hev to be a-goin'. You-uns
come up and see us; don't fergit."
A group of men were gathered at
the small store in the lower end of
the cove just as the evening shadows
were beginning to thicken in the
mountains. Some were seated on the
rude platform in front, while others
mounted on horseback had reined up
to hear the news of the day; for the
country store and the post office take
the place of a newspaper in the
mountain districts.
"They tell me," said old Squire Bar
low. as he threw a huge quid of to
bacco on the floor, "they tell me that
Sally Ann Larkin got that letter from
Bud Hunt to-day. an' that she growed
nigh onto an inch since it come."
"Whar is Bud now?" said an angu
lar young farmer.
"Bud, he's some'rs about Singcin
nati, I reckin; that's what Polly said,
an' she wuz at the office when the let
ter come. He's run onto a plumb
pood job thar with some kind of a
railroad consarn, an' he's a-gittin' 40
a month."

in the city," said the squire; "when
I wuz thar about war time they
j 'lowed ez thar warn't nary place like
I the mountains fer Pete Barlow."
S "Waal, hit 'pears to me," said the
storekeeper, "that ef ye an' Bud
j Hunt could both git jobs thar. that
mos' all the rest of us could."
This raised the laugh on the squire,
who responded by expectorating in
a keg of horseshoes that stood atone
end of the porch. Just then a pale
y° un lf fellow, whose white skin was
a sharp contrast to his curly black
hair, hailed the group, and was just
about to ride past when the squire,
in order to regain his standing as
leader, called out: "Can't ye pull up
^ frien'ly fer a minute, Jim?
needn 't tnmk Sally Ann wants to
see ye now, Hain't ye heared about
her letter?"
I "Yes, I did," said the young man,
quietly, as he rode up; "I didn't 'low
She'd care much to see me."
"i should guess not," responded
the squire, quite happy again, and
restored to his former position by
the laughter of the loafers. "I

winking at the crowd.
I "The letter didn't say so," said the
»quire; "hit »aid that he would b*

wedlcs, an' they could git hitched up
"D' ye hear that, Jim? Thar's
ues in ye bein' blowed on Sally Ann
any longer; her an' Bud'll leave the
cove, an' ye'll never see nary bit
more of neither of 'em."
"That letter said, fer Sally Ann let
1 Polly read it, that Bud had heared that
Sally Ann wuz bein' pestered by sev
eral other fellers, but that he wuzn't
scared about them a-sparkin' her; he
knowed that when he come to fetch
her away, that would be the eend of
their sparkin', when she read the let

j an' hed put on her Sunday clothes, she

| "You lie!" said the pale-skinned
j young man, as he mounted bis horse,
"I hev that letter in my pocket right
now a takin' it to her; hit hain't never

With this parting shot the young
man rode off at a trot, leaving the little
group to receive the squire's further
information as they chose. Jim Far- !

and the constancy which she had
shown in her feelings for her old lover 1

The door was open, and after stop
ping a moment to speak to the dog,
who had recognized him, he crossed
the narrow porch. His steps were ar
rested, however, as he saw the Widow
I.arkin bending over the bed, fanning
Sa'-lj-Ann, whose face seemed verj pale
to him, as he stood there in the shadow
watching. The widow looked up, and,
smiling faintly, came outside, shutting
the door after her. "She's asleep."
"What's the matter, Martha? I
hedn't heared that she wuz sick abed."
"She hain't been on her feet fer these

Attention was recently called by a
prominent out-of-town newspaper
to the "novel spectacle" offered to
observers by the rush for divorces in
this city, relates the Washington
Star. It was asserted that the spe
cialist lawyers of Washington had
advised lower rates for the remainder
of the year, the chief cause for the
rush, however, being ascribed to the
prospect of a divorce law much less
liberal than the present one going
into effect the second of January.
Under the provisions of the existing
statute as interpreted by sympathet
ic courts, so the writer referred to
declares, cold feet, chronic dyspepsia
or a habit of bringing friends home
to dinner on wash days are sufficient
grounds for a decree with liberal ali
