in his two heads, ad, holding rm-ly
to the bahk of the pew In front with
his elbows, sowly slides one large and
heaviy booted foot lato the aisle. He
woaders it the noise It makes scraping
about an the arpet sounds as lad to
everybody else as It does to him. With
wary uneasiness he glances at Aunt
May. She terns a let and her eye
travel down the page. She I rseading

And when it is her tarn to read--lo
aeed of repeating the words of David,
she says in a soft, low voice, without
moving her eyes: "Harry, If you don't
Immediately stop that noise I'll tell
your mother, and you won't have any
ice eram for dinner."
It is almost like ventriloqatsm to
hear Aunt May say this. Harry, lost
in admiration d her powers, stares
at her, and, impelled by alarmed r
spect, draws in his toot. But It is
dreadfully bot. Other little boys and
girls are waving fans, and their 1ittl
beage sad curls are fluttering in the
brease. Harry's esh is weak.
He waits till Aunt May is absorbed
in the psalms, and ths time gripping
titht with i ebows, d both fet

His body describes a wonderful curve,
but he slaes the objdet of his reach,

"It woa't last very long," says Aunt
May, pleadingly; "Just keep quiet and
you won't and It very long."
Harry smiles, and promises, and
marts out in an exemplary attitude, his
eyes fixed on the minister. But It
sems to be a very long sermon. It is
extremely bot, and Harry thinks of
Aunt May's promises, and wishes he
could go home and screw and unscrew
the opera-glasses. In imagination he
selects his candy and soda-water, and
thinks that he will insist on the latter
on the way home.
Aunt May begins to breathe natural
ly, and actually listens to the sermom.
When Harry cautiously takes all the
books out of the rack she is only dis
turbed for a moment. He sets them
up on the seat beside him in the form
of a house, and tells himself a story
under his breath, about its imaginary
occupants. Aunt May is in peace. She
has known him to amuse himself so
for hours. He opens unseen doors for
the exit and entrance of his hero and
heroine. They mount imaginary horses
and ride away. They come back and
battle softly, kill each other, and the
survivors make up. Harry is en
grossed. Aunt May folds her hands
and is at rest.
Presently she feels a gentle touch
on her arm and Harry whispers: "Aunt
May, has Mr. Jones a glass eye?"
"Keep qulgt. I don't know."
"Brld et ald he had. I've been
watching him ever so long, and he's
never stopped winklg. And last sum

"Yes, yes, I know. Now do be quiet"
Harry subsides, presently to mur

for the mosey?"
"Oh, very soon now," cheeringly.
"Can I give it to him?"'
Aunt May puts two sliver peces ia
his hand. Harry clinks them, them
drops one in the bottom of the pew

"Passng along a city street the other

the New York Sun, "I saw, tied on at

"Curiosity prompted me to look at
the shipping tag on the crate. The dog
was going to a city on the Pacific oast,
a long Journey, but I didn't doubt it
woul get there safely.
"The crate was big enough for its
