"Will no one volunteer?" shouted the

laughter wenlt up from the ruanks of
the oppos ,ition.
The chuckle had scarcely died away,
however, before George, with his cap
and shoes off, stepped(l Ibefore the Judge
and with a confident look he exclaimed:
"Yes sir, I'll climbt it."

"Nobly said my little man, what is

boat trailing her pretty hand
gh the clear water of the lake,
en a sudden gust of wind careened
the yacht so that she lost her balance
and fell into the water. George heard
the splash made by Ida, and before the
Judge could utter a cry, he had kicked
off his light summer shoes, and plunged
in to her rescue. Being a skillful and
vigorous swimmer, he came up with
the struggling girl before her clothes
allowed her to siink, llud entwiined her

year in either case you must leave my
house for the present. What do yo
think of my proposal ?"
George was completely bewildered,
and stammered forth a request to be
allowed a few hours for consideration..
This being granted, he repaired to 'his
room and throw himself on the bed Ia s
paroxysm of grief. Could the* adgd
have guessed what himttself shad hardly
dared to hope ? What right had he to
his benefactor's daughter and fortune ?
None! He would biother inid feelings,
and earn an honorable living by his
own exertions.
Various were the rumors set aflott
by the scandal mongers of G- , as
to the cause of yound Wentworth's
leaving his patron's mansion, but their
inuL10111lo01 were unheeded. His brow
wore it More thoughtful expression, and
his cheeks grow paler. The Judge
acted towards him in a straight-forward
frank manner, yet never addressed him
in the kind, fathorly tones. as had boon
his wont before the incident that oc
curred bn the lake. If ho chanced to
meet Ida in his walks, a frondly nod
was all that passed ; still shU felt that
his looks betrayed him, for the warm
blood gushed from his loved heart. and
tinted his cheek with the tell tale blush4
and he cherished the pleasing thought
that her looks were beaming with love
and hope.
A little more than a year had passed
from the time George had left the home
of those he loved. It was the eve of
another election. Excitement ran high
and Judge S was again a candi
date from Congress. For several weeks
a series of ably written articles land ajº
peur)ed in the .Judge's paper. They
were addressed to all classes-farmners,
mechanics and laborers. The original
and vigorous style, clear, conviacinag
arguments, deep ind profenln(O reasoa
ing of those articles, invariably carried
convicton to the parties to wvhoam they
were addressed. All the nowspapers
