It was akdigbt.'nl evening in tbe fall
of tbo year, and Dick Long was never
happier in his life, with Mam-ie Wuth
ersptsss, tbe prtttknt girl ia tbe village,
by his side. lint Mag waa a aaury girl
at times, for abe knew her cbarma, aa
every pretty girl tfca-t, and when abe
waa la the round abe loved to tease those
whose admiratkm or affections sho had
won. Nearly every yonng man in tbo
Village had made advances to her. and
with one racrptioc abe had tnrncu tbcta
all against her oa account of her aaury,
coquettish ways, which tbe young men
failed to understand, and invariably
sent tbrm off in a buff. The one excep
tion was Pick Lang, wnuse love for
Mag waa a posniun. He bad beiron by
eying her at a distance and gradually
getting neCrcr. At first sho treated him
with ind1S.Tencr, and in his preaenco
always seemed to think more of
one else than of him. BubHpald-
tag wan atrapping yonng fellow and
to all airpearanots made tbe most prog-
in bis advances, ur course Jaatr
tad an much as dented that there was
anything between her and Bob, but ahs
necessary to have it In hlack ana wnire.
The fear that Dob would cany off Mag
made Dick all the mere anxious to wia
her before it waa too late. And tho op
portunity ho was. now civen was all
Lbat he wanted. It was a common ray
ing about tbe vinaga tbat Lnck wca
ratbtr long beaded ccd knew a good
thing wheu ho saw it. He know a lit
tle of human nature, (aid below all
Mag's nonsense ho conld discera a true
and warn heart. At fill even's. Dick
was determined to have bcr if ho conld.
They had walked neat ly a mile with
out aayirtg innch, beyoud talking about
tbo weather, for Dit-k was making tip
bis taind what to say una trying to get
courage at tho sumo timo to say it.
Wheu thty reached a dump of trees
not far f m the lurn, Mag snggrsted
thrt thvy ait down, reinarktng that they
had h id a big washing at the house,
ard rhi felt a liitlo tired.
"I tiiicbt a thockt o' that afore, Mag
gie, i? ye'd only tolt roe," said Dick
repentantly, "Let lat's tit doon coo."
"It's a too ooou tiio nicht, timt it,
Dick?" aau-ed Mas, lookin;- up into
"What did yo say. UagKieJ"
"I asked yo if it was tao a foo'
tat-nn man, whar's ytr lupi?"
"Oh ah I 'ta thinkin it is. " Then
Dick stroked bis chin and toro np tho,
cod with his heels. "It's n fine thing,
ntnoon. Maggie, isn't it?" Dick at last
found words to say, in order to bseak
the UKRHitony and gaiu time, hot with
or.t 1 cing able to explain v.-hy ho had
caid ro.
"IToo is't a fiod thing?" asked Mag,
looking tt hitu with the tails cf hex
"Wet 1 a I I've heerd it said
that tho Tuoon, ye kon, was a ude
thing for a-kirnin milk cn prroervin

mind that he had nuswrivd the question
in the ri;xht way ir had inlly txnnpre
bendetl it. his thoughts at tho moment
hrin;i ia aa entirely diiferent direction.
Thorn was a merry l.mh ia Mag's eyes,
lmt ihn restrained its vocal expression.
Fho merely shook for a moment v Ith
tho emotiou and then tried to cpier
"Maggi." said Dick ct length, rtill
di.Tjng np tho earth with hi:i heel,

"Will ye baa me, MagtiV" asked
Dirk iinploringly.
"No, I v inna," came prociiT itsa
her lips. .
" Yo winna O Maggie, think again,

A bursting not emery wheel, boiler
or dynamite bomb, but a plain and or
dinarily ambitious potato may cost a
Camden (X. J. ) woman her sight. Pota
toes were baked for supper, and in tbe
attempt to take hem from tho oven one
blew up, burning her eyo so severely
that the chances are it will become
blind. The kitchen was powdered with
bits of tbe flying potato, which went to
pieces with a vcngeau-c. To bcko po
tatoes, however, may still be regarded
ts a fairly safe cperation in these days
