When Wayland and Amy came in sight of Kenilworth they were daz<*d try tho crowds and crowds of soldiers dressed in shining uniforms. And people of every kind were scattered around as far as one could see and they were each one shouting, "Good Queen Bess; long live our noble queen!" In those days there were largo walls around the castles and one had to pass through gates to gain entrance to the castle. Kenilworth had stone walls around it aiid every one had to have a psss to get through the gates. They were guarded by soldiers to kee.p all but invited guests out. Wayland and Amy had no pass and were surprised thnt the guard at the first gate lot them pass They were riding up the avenue that was bordered xx ith largo trees and which let to tho gate In the second wall when little Hob goblin fell out of ono of them plump Into Hie saddle xxlth Wayland. Wayland was much startled and exclaimed: "Arc these the kind of acorns th.nt Kenilworth trees hear?" Hobgoblin whisjiored to them thnt he had told the guards of the first gat** thnt they were a part of tho company that xvas to pl-ay before the queen and nntuso her with their comic actions. Ho said they were behind the others be cause tho lady was 111 and they had to stop till she was better. This xvas why they got through the gate xvlth so Uttlo trouble But the second c.atc was yet to bo got ten through. WTion they neared ft the stiff soldiers put their hands on bhelr swords and stared hard .at thorn. Hob goblin hopped off tho horse and wont turning heels over ho,ad square up to the guards Ho fold them the same tale that ho had told before and they nil wont through.

Amy gave W.ayl.nnd .a. letter .and told him t<> take It -at once to the earl. This was not .an easy task, for no ono dared to i -ill him from the presence of tho queen He gave It to Hobgoblin, who Wils small and -hrow’ more likely ’-nd away to get It Into the hands of tho earl. Mr Tresselllan was .a nobleman and and ho was ono of the guests at Kenil worth. Ho would not haxo gone at all but he xvanted to tell the queen how cruelly Amy Rnbsart was being treated. He was so distressed about his little pl.-ixinate that he did not dress up 111 any line clotlies In honor of the quonn bi.i. wns ,i dangerous thing to neglect, for Elizabeth was very particular in, exacting all the respect due hor. Sir Walter Ralelyh was also one of the noble guests and quite a friend of Edxvard Tres-olUnn. He told Edw.aVd that he ought to change his costume 'ind sc: t. him to his own rosn> for that purpose, .Anthony Foster let Richard Varney knoxx as soon as Amy had escaped from t'umnor place. He wont at once to search for her and traced her and Wayland to Kenilworth. When he reached there he had Amy locked up and was going so h.-iv. Etlxvard Tresselllan locked up. too. for he thought that It was Tresselllan xx iio had brought her there. Sir Walter Ihdeigl: found out that his friend was lik'-ly to b< locke 1 up and kept him li. his own room. When Tresselllan had an opportunity 1" told the earl of Leister of ail his cruel ty to Amy. and challenged him to fight a duel. In that day and time no gentle man could refuse to tight i duel when challenged, so they r appointed a time and place to fight.

She was very angry, for she had loved the earl herself and she be lieved he loved her. She felt furious at being deceived by one to whom she had always been so partial. She exclaimed j that England had lost a. king for she i had expected to marry the earl. She would not have him killed, although ( she was so angry. She did not want her penpie to know that she had loved him. She banished him from court for a time and would give him no honorable place among the nobles of England. And Amy? Tho earl had himself given the order tn have her killed, and Richard Varney took hor back tn Cumnor place, where she was cruelly murdered This horrible deed broke Edward Tres selllan’s heart and ho came with Sir Wal ter Raleigh to Virginia, where ho soon died. After a few years the queen recalled the earl to court and forgave him for loving Amy Rnbsart all because she her self had loved him so. But the for giveness did not go far enough for Eng land to have a king. A few years later the earl dfod—the best thing that ho ever did—from drinking a glass of poison that he himself had prepared for an enemy.

In the winter , to gather what we can find. We always ! know where to find the lovely ferns. In , a few more days wo will go to gather , ferns, holly and cedar to decorate our ; homes for Christmas. Most of the Junior letters show that they are anticipating a grand time Christmas. 1 must say that. 1 am look ing forward to that week. ( know there • will be many sad hearts Christmas I morn. Mothers Mid daughters will weep because there Is so much drinking in their homes. I wish that all girls could wake as hap py as I will Christmas. The thought of seeing my 'brothers and father drunk . does not. cross my mind, for my brothers do not partake of the poisonous stuff. . Girls, why do you tempt the young man ’ with the cup?
