n6w what all besides; while; If we
stopped eating to breathe or Kieak,
Patty - flew in with a plate of freshly
made things of the most heavenly na
ture, "called corn fritters. Mrs. Trow
bridge beamed all over when I said I
should like to live on them .for a
month. ,. . . -
, Wc were obliged to eat a good deal
of everything, otherwise Mrs. Trow
bridge would have felt hurt,- and I felt
sleepy when we had finished, but I re
fused to go and lie down to rest, as
they wanted me to, it seemed such a
waste of time. At last Mr. Trowbridge
offered to show "Cousin Jim" around
the farm, and maybe I looked wistful,
for when they found that I was deter
mined not to take a nap, they asked if
I would go with them. .
Mr. Trowbridge had on linen coat
now, a long, yellow one, which I should
laugh at if I saw -it on the stage in a
play, but it suited him, and he looked
quite Impressive iu it. He fanned him
self with a large straw hat, without
any rfbbou, aud talked splendidly to
us, as wc three walked together under
the trees. ..
f If any English person should write
a novel and make a farmer in it talk
like Mr. Trowbridge, every one who
read the book would say he was im
possible. His way of speaklug was a
little, slipshod sometimes though not o
bit more than ours when we drop our
"g's"' and things like that, only more
guileless sounding but without seem
ing a bit as if he wanted to show off
what he knew, which Is so loring, he
quoted Shakespeare and Wordsworth
and -Tennyson and In mentioning his
work at the hives in the morning asked
If we had read Maeterlinck's "Life of
the Bee." From that he fell to dls
cussing other things of .Maeterlinck's
w ith Mr. Brett and Incidentally talked
of Ibsen. There wasn't the least af
fectation about It all.
'. By and by he loft us alone for a few
minutes while he went to speak to a
man. who works on the farm.' He. was
going to show us the maple sngar
camp when he came back, and we sat
on. a felled oak and waited, with a
smell of clover coming to us on the
warm breeze aud the "tlokle-tankle"
of cowbells in the distance.
"What an extraordinary man!" I said
to Mr. Brett.
' You mean because he's a farmer."
Isaidjie, his yes "laughing
- "Well, I suppose I da
But, then, of
course vhe's a , gentleman farmer, not
an ordinary one at all." '
"Ile'sr a gentleman in the way that
all the good ' people in the country
round are gentlefolk because they're
self respecting and kind hearted and
intelligent. But he comes of genera
tions of workers. They make no pre
tensions to blue blood, though perhaps
they, may , have some In their veins,
and don't r think themselves superior
socially to their own farm hands, like
'that one over there: Nor do they con
sider themselves" inferior to anybody.
NM that they would think of assert
ing their claims to equality with your
friend Mrs. Stuyvesaut-Knox, for In
stance. They simply take It for grant
ed that they are the equals of any oth
er American or, for the matter of
that, persons of any foreign nations.
What would your mother the duch
ess think of them now, honor bright?
Don't dream you'll hurt my feelings
because they're my cousins and we
may come of the same stock." .
I, thought for a minute, and then I
'' "Mother would begin to patronize
them graciously at first, as if they
could be classified with our farmers
I . mean,' the peasant - ones, not the
younger son or poor gentleman kind.
When she , found she couldn't, she
would be inclined to resent it. Then
at last, when a dim, puzzled inkling
of the truth came Into her head, and
she (ound out that they knew as much
as she about books and politics and all
Sorts of things oh, I can hardly fancy
exactly what she would feel, but I'd
trust Mr. and Mrs. Trowbridge or any
one like them not to appear "at a dis
advantage with lier, whatever she did
with them. ; They wouldn't have self
Consciousness enough to be overawed
by her, though she caa be so dreadful
ly alarming. Why, . Mr. Brett, in a
way. I believe they're like us more
like us, really, deep down and . far
back than " a good many enormously
rich people I met at Newport, - who
think no "end of themselves and live
in palaces and know royalties abroad.
Just . as A- said once to Sally Miss
Woodburn we take ourselves for
granted, and then don't make any
more, fuss or bother about our man
ners or whether we're going, to do the
right thing or not.' ; But a few of the
people even In your Four-Hundred
don't, seem ouite easv in their minds
ilrajafs of; the about themselves. I've - never seen
el3, you . must j anything in big houses at home where
rs. There !sire been with mother of .Vic to come
ie fts place ( oear the Juxury of theirs, yet several
;l ,of eiires lve' met enn't neem tn roln-r nri Wit-
thoroughly ? ooinrortable, as If ' they
really liked it They don't loll about
as we do; they only pretend to loll, be
cause it's In their Dart In m nl.-tv
t -ar.J ail they're; acting oh, such a smart, so
1 : :-Uchet' ciety kind of play, with. lots of changes
, Cotiive- of dress and scene In every act
J'-:, Colds- "They build castles - because It's the
, :. smartest . thing they can do' aud be-
cause "grand people always did ft a
long time ago. Of course iu old times
you. bad to live in them and couldn't
have nice seaside cottage with bal
conies, because if you did your ene
mies shot oft your bead or poured boil
ing oil on you, but' nowadays they
merely say horrid things behind your
back, and it's Just play acting to build
new ones. People talk about a man
being 'worth so many millions, as if
it didn't matter what else, he's worth.
and they, seem to be, worrying a lot
about themselves. Xow, I can't Im
agine your cousins doing that. They
just take themselves for granted, as
we do In England. Their behavior la
like the air they breathe and as mncb
a part of ' themselves as that air ia
when 'it's in their lungs. - There's a
kind of invisible bond between our
kind of people at home and people like
this, I think, if you come to study it
Fartly it's from having all one's nat
ural Interests . in the country, maybe,
and not -Just going into the country
from a town to play. They.are real.
There's nothing artificial about them."
"You've got hold of things even soon
er than I thought you would, Lady
Betty," said Mr. Brett when I stopped,
horrified at myself for my long ha
rangue, in which I'd been thinking out
things as I went on. "But all .the
same, though these new types and this
pleasant Ohio farm interest you now,
you know you'd rather die than be
doomed to live among such people and
in such a place." " ,
"Perhaps I should be bored after
awhile, but I don't feel now as If I
should. I know I could be hajlpy If I
had people with me whom I loved."
"But could you love anyone who"
"Well, i. I've got rid of that fellow,"
said Mr. Trowbridge cheerfully. . "Xow
we'll have u look around the camp, and
I'll show you how we tap the maple
trees for the sap, then afterward we'll
go into the "sugar house where we boll
it down and make the maple sirup." ,
We'd been talking so earuestly thai
we hadn't ueard him come up, and I
felt quite dazed for a minute.
. ne explained everything to us, or
rather to me, for Mr. Brett knew all
about- it beforehand. ' Then we had a
long walk over the hills, which are bil
lowy and wooded like Surrey: and
We took field paths and skirted the edge
. of meadows.
wben we' came back" Mr. Trowbridge
took me to the beehives to get some
honey and show me what a queen bee
is like. He gave me a hat with a mos
quito net veil and put on one himself.
Then he opened a hive, and when 1
wasn't a bit nervous, because I trusted
him, he said, "I tell you what it is.
Lady Betty, you're a' trump
shouldn't be surprised if there isn't
something in blood after all."
I was pleased, for I don't think that
he or any of the others at the Valley
farm are the kind to say nice things to
you unless they really mean them
After we had done all this sightsee
ing, it was past 5 o'clock, and I was
longing for tea. "We shall have it
soon now," I said to myself, as we sat
on the side veranda on benches and
rocking chairs, fanning ourselves with
palm leaf fans.
"Tea's ready, good people, if you're
ready for It." announced Mrs. Trow
bridge's gentle voice at the door.
Mr. Trowbridge and Mr. Brett got up,
and I did, too disappointed that we
weren't to have It out of doors, but
still, I reminded myself, the sitting
oom would be nice and cool. But
found that we were being led through
to the dining room.
There was the long table laid out
again, with a regular sit down meal
cream cheese and cake' and blackber
ries and a big plate of honey, some
curious kind of smoked meat cut very
thin and the potatoes which I'd smell
"What an odd tea!" I thought. But
the oddest part was that after all there
wasn't any tea. . ' '."
It wasn't much past G when- we
finished, and soon Mr. Brett asked me
how I would like to walk over to Mrs.
Randal's and see my friend ; Miss
Woodburn, since she couldn't come to
ma, The i)lace was less than a-mile
aw'iiy by short cuts which he knew,
and he 'would take, me there.
The shadows 'were beginning to
grow loug and hm when we started,
though tbe sun was still bright so 1
carried a sunshade, and went hatless,
American fashion.. -. '-. ; -
To avoid going out. In the -road we
took field paths and skirted along the
edge of meadows where grain was tall
and golden or white "as a -summer
snowstorm- There were no proper
stiles, as ' with us,' so whenever we
came to one of the rough fences which
divided one field from another I had
to mount on the, first or second barjtafete good,. because your stomach and

I were a bundle of down, Instead of a

Mohunslclgh's foot I was glad when
we came to the fences, and that there
were-a good many of them. . But I
wasn't at all glad when Mr. Brett
Jumped me over, into a grass meadow,
where there was a whole drove of fe
rocious looking black and white cattle.
" "Couldn't we go some other way
around':" ' I asked, longing to ' get be
hind him, but ashamed for him to see
what aq idiot I am about cows, and
perhaps make him lose his good opin
ion of me" as" a reasonably brave girl.
"I'm afraid not unless we turn
back," said he.' "But you needn't mind
them. Remember you're with an old
'cow puncher, "
Oh, were you one, too?" I r.sked.
trying to seem at ease.'.
Too?' ''- . ' --; ' ' .'" v
I was thinking of a friend of my
cousin Mohunsleigh's, whom he ' was
always talking about, a Mr. Ilarbor
ough, who lives in San Francisco. Mo
hunslelgh knew him abroad some
where. He used to be a 'cow puncher
whatever that is in Texas, I believe,
though now he's a millionaire. Did
you ever bear of him?" ;
Yes," said Mr. Brett in rather a dry
"I was so disappointed not to meet
him." ? - .
(As we walked on. I kept my eyes on
the horrible animals who were graz
ing at some distance.)
Why? he asked the question al
'Because my cousin says he's such a
glorious person."' ,
"Well gilded, anyhow."
"Oh, I don't mean on that account
I'm rather blase of millionaires lately.
But from Mohunsleigh's accounts he
must be well, the sort of a man We
like." : " '
"Girls. Brave and adventurous, and
reckless, and that sort of thing.
"I'm afraid his millions are more of
an attraction to most girls.".
"Why, j-ou're as bad as he!" -1 ex
"In what way?"
"Unjust, and almost morbid. I
wouldn't have thought you would be
like that, though perhaps one can't
blame him so mm-h if he's had bad ex
periences. I . am sorry for him. It
must be miserable to fancy .always
that people care for you for your
"I'm sorry for him too. At least, 1
used to be whenever I thought of
"Aren't you now?"
"No. I believe he's a changed man.
He's foundthat there are exceptions to
the gloomy rule he'd laid down for hu
manity." . -
"Oh, then he's happier,".
"So far as I understand the case, he
Isn't exactly happy yet.'. He Isn't out
of the woods. In facj, he's in the
thickest part. But hesees blue sky
and the sun shining overhead." . -
"What do you mean?"'' ".
"A fellow who knows-him very well
told me that Harboroiigh had fallen In
love with a beautiful gii'f wh,o was so
unworldly tbat she might be induced
to marry for love if she cared."
"Then why isu't he happy?"
"Because he doesn't know whether
she can ever care for him except as a
friend. lie's sure she likes him pretty
well," but there's nothing in that. 1'iu
mighty ignorant about'sm-h things my
self, but they say if a girl doesn't mind
showing that she's your friend and
values you In a way it's a sign she's
a thousand miles off from falling In
love with J-ou. What's your opinion
on the subject as you seem to be rath
er interested iu Harboroiigh?"
"My goodness; Mr. Brett, there's a
cow looking at us. Oh, what shall we
do? It's the worst cow of all. It's
putting its head down now. It doesn't
like us. Oh, what an appalling beast.
1 believe it must be a bull."
"It's a very young one," said he
calmly. "Now, don't be' frightened.
This is going to be nothing at all."
"Are you sure?'
"Can't you trust me?" .

T. H. THOMAS, SPECIAL AGENT. ' APPLICATIONS AT
Yes. I know yon won't let me be
hurt. But yon"
Don't worry. Perhaps we shall
have a little fun. Just wait."
The cows were delighted. Evidently
they regarded the horrid, thick necked
brute as their champion. They didn't
follow him toward us, but lifted their
heads and stared complacently, as
much as to say: "Isn't be a splendid
fellow? Now he's going to give them
what they deserve."
The rest happened so quickly it was
all in a jumble. With ar smile, Mr.
Brett reached out and took my sun
shade, which I'd closed. Just as the
bull came at us he opened it in the
creature's face. The bull swerved a
few Inches, surprised, and the next
thing I knew the sunshade whs tossed
away, Mr. Brett had seized the animal
by his horns and was vaulting on his
back with a laugh. "Run to the near
est fence," said he.
He did it as easily as If it were play,
and so It seemed to be for him. The
bull tore about, ramping and raving,
while I obediently flew for the fence
and scrambled over without ceremony.
There I turned, panting, frightened,
yet laughing In spite of ri rself. Mr.
Brett's hat had fallen off, and his
short hair was ruffled across his fore
head. Riding tbe black and white bull.
hanging on by legs as well as arms, he
looked like a runaway schoolboy rev
eling in a mischievous lark. ' His eyes
sparkled, and his white teeth shone.
The bull was sure he could throw his
rider at first but finding he couldn't
was very much surprised. His wild
gallop subsided to a trot and. embrac
ing his great neck, Mr. Brett bent far
down to one side o snatch up my sun
shade, which lay on the grass, open
and undamaged. A few moments
later be had steered the bull in some
curious way with his feet, so that the
beast came loping stupidly near the
fence. Then Mr. Brett Jumped off and
"That was a good bit of sport said
he. "It reminis me of old times, when
we chaps nsetl to ride steers ftir a
wager. I'm a little out of practice
now, but I hope you were amused."
"I was much too terrified," I said,
thankful .that he was on tbe right side
of the fence at last.
"Then I apologize for the exhibition
The silly brute didn't know be was
our bull, you see, but I reckon he'll
remember now and act accordingly."
After that nothing else happened to
npset us on the way to Sally.
The place where she is staying isu't
a farm, but quite a small cottage in a
lovely garden, walled In with oaks
and maples, and Mrs Randal sells
seeds and cuttings. - '
A young girl came down to the door
when we rang, and asked us to "please
sit down on the piazza;" she would
call Miss Woodburn. Then we had
a few minutes to wait, and Sally ap
peared, i v - J ' "
I was glad to see" her! v And when
she held me tight and kissed me I had
to wink back 6ome silly tears. It was
so good to feel that she cared about
me, and would sympathize in every
thing, for I knew she would. -
.After Mr. Brett bad said "hovt do
you do," and a few polite Twords, he
added that he would just stroll over,
to the Green Dairy farm across the
way. e Knew tne larmer tnere, ana
wouiu ime ro nave a cnac wiin mm.
We settled that he was to come back
for me in an hour, and then Sally and
I were lejt ajoue together.
Sne mnrte me begin at the beginning
and tell all mj adventures, cause as
well as effect. lefore she would give
me any of her news, or even her opin
ions ou the situation as far as it con
It made quite a long story, and Sally
was a beautiful listener, as only sym
pathetic and unselfish peoRle can be.
"There wasn't anything else for me
to do, was there?" I asked when she

knew everything exactly as it had hap
She complimented me on my
"pluck," like the dear creature she is,
and said she hadn't it in her heart to
be sorry, as things had turned out,
that I had bad such a chase tor find her.
"To tell the truth, it wa3 your affairs
that drove me to Chicago," she went
on. "I don't mind your knowing now,
dear. We can talk freely about things
I couldn't discuss with you before. Of
course, I always knew Katherine
wanted you for Potter, and that they'd
both do anything to get you. It began
with her trying to keep other men
away from you even on the ship. Do
you remember? Nobody could get near
you but Tom Doremus, and he
wouldn't if Kath hadn't been afraid
of , Mrs. Van der Wlndt It was
Just- the same In Newport, whenever
she could fix it so. 1 couldn't exactly
warn you; it wouldn't have been nice.
They are my cousins, and. I' was'
Kath's guest though I shouldn't have
been for . long!-if I' hadn't wanted to
watch over you. But you know I did
drop hints sometimes, didn't I?'. It
wasn't my business if you'd falleu in
love with Potter, but though be. isn't
a bad fellow, he's not' good enough or
strong enough for you, Betty, and I
should have been mighty sick at heart
If he had got you." . v ' . " - " ' v
"I never felt he wanted me, really,"
I said, "although be. was always pro
posing." ' :r . ;.' '. . .
"Oh, yes, he did want you.- Terhaps
he wasn't truly in love at first, though
he always admired you. deah." There
. was an actress that be was crazv
