elect is wcavi)gfnnt(i8tiu llgures, stand's
n girlish figure (stumping her foot anil
looking out on tho dull, lcailcn-eoloreil
sky. The crispy logs burn brightly,

watch thu fair nrolllo at thu window.
By and by sho comes toward me, and
stands by mv sido, warming her fair
hands at thu ilrc. The' aro symmetri
cal hands, white and small; Iter bosom
rises and falls, and a sigh as gentle as
tho zephyr winds in summer goes out
and away. Uoforo mo is tho picture of
fair lady of twenty-three, and by my
side on tho tablu is a letter to her I hnvo
just finished. I show it to tho littlu
innlcluu and sho reads and sighs again.
Then sliu says:
"You aro going down there and you
nd Miss Lulio will marry sure enough,
Mr. Walter. And you'll bringhor back
here ;and keep this room. And when
you oome, I would like to bo a fly crawl

"Why, PappooseP"
"To'watuh your happiness and tickle
your noses, perhaps." And away she
llev, rto help her mamma about her
household duties.
The bccmo is in tho South land, no
matter 'wliero. I am a writer gathering
up incidents for an articlo in a leading
magazine, or at least I came hero for
that iiurpose, and have prolonged my
stay indefinitely. I have stopped with
a widow lady, Mrs. Mahonls, and Laura
is her only child, whom I hare mick
named I'appoose. With Southern pre
cocity, sho is a woman whilo yet a child.
Fair complexion, witli dark hair and
passionate, dreamy eyes, sho is a picture

"I never intend Lnura shall marry
until she is twenty-two."
And my heart sank, for I thought it
should not be so.
I have been earning on a correspond

Sho shivers Just a HtUe. The tear
drops dry up like, an April shower.
There Is n trcinulom motion about tho
lips, and a softly spoken "good-by,",
and she is gone.
Fohrunry has come. I am ngnln In
my village retreat. Pappooso Is just
fifteen. I am lounging on tho gallery
watching tho fairy figure making snow
balls in thu yard. 'J Ills tlino shu is very
shy of me. I havo been hero n week,
nnd save a few hurried words, havo not
spoken to her; and yet I camo solely on
her account. I begin to wonder If I liavo
made a fool of myself, and If somo vll
lago boy has already won her henrt. I
am nervous, excitable ami passionate,
and sitting here, watching tho sweet
profile, thu studious brown, tho long
lashes nnd tlm wealth of raven tresses
covering her llko a manth I get mad,
tip over my chair, and walk away to tho
stable to my dear old Dun, a gallant
roadster, and am soon sweeping away
madly down thu rough vlllngu road.
Man, and such a fool!
A pleasant ride changes my thoughts,
and I come back to meet Pappooso on
the gallery, with u tiny nosegay, which
sho oilers, and says:
"Let mo pin tills on vour coat. It
may keep you'm a good "humor. 11
"How did you know 1 was angry, or
In a bad humor?"
"Look at that chair;" and sho walks
over, picks up my fallen chair, sets It
down strait with a thud, nnd with an
air of Intense anger, stamping herpretty
foot, she says, "There now!'"
Then, breaking Into a ringing laugh,
sho trips away.
After sho leaves I am still standing on
the gallery, leaning against a post, whip
ping myself with my riding whip, when
out In tho road in front of thu house

Auecdotes of Lincoln.
L. J. Cist has collected for a Clncln-
at! paper some interesting anecdotes of
tho martyred President. In 1832, when
23 years old, Lincoln was induced by his
friends to run as a Whig candiduto for
the legislature, and mudo his maldon
wieeoli as follows: "Gentleman, fellow
citizens: I nresumo vou all know who I
am. I am humble Abraham Lincoln,
I havo been solloiteil by my friends to
become a candhlato for tho Legislature.
My politics aro short and sweet, like an
old woman's dance. 1 am in favor of a
National Hank. I am in favor of tho, in
ternal improvement system and a pro
foutlvo tarlfl'. Theso aro my sentiments
and political principles, il eiuu.edl will
bo thankful. If not, it's all the samo."
Ho was not elected at this tlmo.
There resided at Springfield, in U60,
an Irish laborer, John McCarty by name,
a red-hot Democrat. Shortly a'ftor the
Presidential election, Mr. Lincoln was
walking past tho nubile snuarc, whero
John was at work cleaning out the gut
ter, as tno rrcsuieiit elect urcw near,
McCarty, pausing in his work nnd hold
ing out ills hand, said, bluntly: "An' so
yer elected President, nro yor faith niv
it wasn't b mv vote vo wnr." "Well,
res, John," replied Mr. Lincoln shak
ng hands very cordially, "the papers
say I'm elected, but It seems odd I
should bo when you went ngainst mo."
"Well, Misthor Lincoln," said John,
dropping lils voice lust some brother
Democrat should hear him. "I'm glad
you got it afthcr nil. It's mighty littlu
pace I've had with lllddy for vot in' for

lJIddv. John, and tell her I'll think ser-

Lincoln witn a suiiiu as lie passed 011 to
his olllcc.
President Lincoln onco said that tho
best story ho ever read in thu papers
about lilinelf was this: Two Quakersses
wcro traveling on the railroad and were
heard discussing thu probnblu result of
the war. "I think," said one, "that
Jcflurson will succeed." Why does thee
think so?" asked tho other. "Hecause

During the spring of 18G1, a friend,
in conversation with Mr. Lincoln about
tho approaching Presidential election,
said nothing could defeat him but
Grant's capturu of Richmond, followed
by his nomination and acceptance.
"Well," said thu President, "I feel very
much llko the man who said lie dldn t
