The new school teacher was unlike the people of the parish; he had coal black hair and eyes, while the parish children generally were blond and blue-eyed. His speech also was un common, because his cradle had stood tar northward. And besides, he had this agzjnst him: he did not seem to care for society, although he was but twenty-one; he did not dance, nor play cards and never trifled with the girls. For this reason he was nick named "Dryflsh." Instead, he aat up late at night poring over his big books. Then, again, he would walk back and forth by the hour playing on his vio lin. The children he soon won, for he was lust to all rich and poor alike but order and quiet was rigidly en forced. Peter Olsen's Hanna was the biggest, oldest and smartest of the girls; she was now in her last year at school. She was always ready with her les sons, and during recess she controlled the most noisy ones. One day they were more noisy than usual. "Stop, you Sven Smart-aleck, t r I'll tell the schoolmaster how you behave during recess." "Tittle, tittle, tattletale; goes in all the houses, licking all the spoons!" bawled Sven, reaching out his tongue. "Do you know why Hanna Is so pert?" "No, no, no!" was heard in chorus. "She thinks herself a young lady, because she is tall as a jackstaff, and then she is in love with 'Dryflsh' she wants to be his sweetheart!" "Ha, ha, ha!" The others thought It lots of fun. Like a flash she bore down on Sven, and a couple of lusty cuffs burned his cheeks. He was so dumfounded that at first he did not utter a word, but finally he found voice. "Every night she stands under his window when he walks and scrapes away at his flddle!" "Do I stand In your way?" said she, her face like scarlet. "Hurrah, she is in love with 'Dry flsh!' " shouted Sven. "Good day, Fru. Dryflsh.' " Two slaps was his reward. Just then the teacher opened the door. He stopped, astonished. Sven sneaked, ashamed, over to his own side, and Hanna lookea as if she want ed to sink into the ground. "What is going on here?" said the master, severely. Frightened, they all remained silent. "Answer, Hanna!" She did not reply. He looked In quiringly about "Why did you strike Sven? Do you think It is proper for a great girl like you to act like a wild boy?" said he. upbraiding!. A. tear ran down Hanna's cheek, but she looked at her playmates with a warning glance. "He used nicknames." "At whom?" "That I cannot tell," she replied frankly. "And pardon me for becom ing angry, I shall not do the like again." His countenance brightened. "Now, Sven, you rascal, what have you to say?" "Forgive him also, he has already had his punishment," interrupted Hanna. The master drew up his lips. "For your sake, Hanna, I shall have to permit mercy to pass for Justice. But you, Sven, watch out another time. School Is called. To your places!" As they went home at noon, Sven said to Hanna, as she turned to go In at her father's gate: "Are you mad at me, Hanna?" "I was very angry! Why did you say such things?" "Because it was true." "It la not But Juat the same I was foolish to notice it Don't be angry at me." "H'm. You do not strike gently. My cheeks still ache. But I certainly hit you In the tenderest spot, didn't I. Hanna?" "Nonsense!" said she, laughing. And then she went Into the great, beautiful homestead, while Sven pro ceeded to the cotter's cabin. Hanna was confirmed, took the blgh school course, and afterward learned the dressmaker's art She was equally clever, handsome and rich, and manv young man in the neighborhood had errands to her father's house. Bui they were obliged to go home their In that It was mostly at church that she had conversation with her old teacher. He seemed to have become more and more reserved. "You see," he said one time, "I am dissatisfied. I am alone; and I miss the beautiful In nature of my native parish. I feel like an alien among a people that seem to think only of their animals and farm affalcp. There Is no regard for music, athletics, or study in unoccupied time. have avo clever youngsters at school now not a single one such as you were, always wide awake, smart and cheerful in song." "The schoolmaster docs not knew how many evenings I stood under the window listening to the violin. I was fearful that someone would see me. and when the schoolmaster ceased to play I used to hide behind the big woodpile." "What do you say? Why didn't you come in, girl?" "I did not dare to. I wHsh you would come to the house with your violin, now and then, and play for us." "I I might easily do that." From that day he often thought of her, and It frequently occurred In the twilight that he hurried to her father's house with the violin under his arm. e Time passed, and the schoolmaster had now lived In that parish five years. He had accustomed himself more and more to existing conditions, and wa better known and appreciated. Many of the older men asked him good-bumoradly if he did not intend to marry soon Instead of sitting there like an owl upon the church roof all his life. But the schoolmaster only laughed and answered that the school- house was go uncomfortable, he did not dare to bring thither such a fraii be ing as a woman. The old fellows In sisted that this difficulty could easily be overcome; they were willing to build a new schoolhouse at any time. But their efforts seemed fruitless. Then, there broke out an epidemic of diphtheria In the town, which spread into the country and raged dreadfully. Young and old became its victims. The school was closed and all intercourse among people ceased. Among t hose who went down before the disease were Hanna's parents, also. And, as she was an only child, she was left entirely alone In the world. One evening, a month after her par ents' burial, she came to the school house, which had -been reopened after the epidemic had passed. She and the schoolmaster sat and gossiped a long time about a little of everything. Then she remarked: "I should very much like to counsel with the schoolmaster, If I dared." "Speak out, my gir:." "I am unable to manago the farm at home, and therefore would rather sell It, hut I do not know what to do then." "0, there will surely be some way out of such a difficulty a rich and beautiful girl can l ys get along," he said. "Yes, but I should like to marry." "Well, there can be nothing to hin der that." "But there is only one man that I would have." "Doesn't he wish to?" "It is just this that I do not know." "H'm." "How shall I find out? It does not seem as if I could go directly to him and ask." "H'm; no, perhaps not Has he never said anything?" "No!" "Is he a good man?" Remarkably so in every way, but not rich." "H'm! Now since I hear that you have this affection, It will make no difference if I tell you, for It cannot come to anything. I have cared for you from the first, but have never ven tured to offer myself because you were rich. Now it must pass. And if in any way I can help or counsel you, I will do so." "I believed it, but was uncertain." "I do not understand you." "0, you, who otherwise Is so know- lug. I have cared for you ever since 1 went to school, and if you will have me, then take me!" "Oh, blessed God, little Hanna! I am bb happy as a fiddler." "Yos, it was tke violin which first attracted me to you. Do you recol lect the time when I cuffed Sven's ears? That was because he said I was in love with you." The schoolmaster was dazed with Joy, but however It came about be managed to kiss Hanna and became quiet by degrees. When a half year had gone by the wedding was celebrated. And when Sven come forward to con gratulate the bridal couple, he whis pered to Hanna: "Congratulations Fru. Dryflsh!'" She laughed goodnaturedly. "You were not so very stupid at foretelling, after all," she answered. "You were In love with him even then," he said. "Well, maybe; otherwise I do not SMieve that I should have slapped you," she said, beaming with Joy. "I suppose your cheeks do not sting yot?" she asked, playfully. "Oh that didn't hurt so much as you imagined. You were so tender-hearted." AN INTERESTING TOOt. The Automatic Screw Machine Does Wonders. The most highly developed of ma chine tools Is the automatic tcten ma chine, and, like many another contriv ance for saving labor, its homo Is New IOaglnnd. It is n development of the ordinary steel-working lathe, the inter mediate step iMdng the monitor lutuc, In which tlu various cutting tools pro trude from the side of a steel turret like thlrtecn-tnch guns from a battle ship turret. In the mm automatic crew m&chifie the turret is revolved by the operator, so as to bring each tool Into play. Just as the turret on the old Monitor was revolved to bring one gun after another Into action. But in the automatic machine the work Is done without human guldnnce. It milking screws, nuts, bolts, stud and other small pieces Hint must be trcrnecl, drilled or threaded for watches, clocks, typewriters, electrical instru ments and other mechanism, nil the op-1 erator has to do Is to feed the "stock" a lone;, thin rod of stool or brass to the machine. The feeding mechanism carries the rod slowly forward Into the field of action. The turret advances and puts its first tool at work on the end of the rod. When this tool has done Its task, the turret withdraws It, turns auil advances a second tool Into action. Kach cutting tool around the turret has its distinct work to perform one cutting a thread, nnother shnplng a head, another putting on a point, an other drilling a hole, still another put ting on a kuurling. The turret auto matically brings each of. perhaps, six tools Into action, and. when the work is finished, the completed screw drops Into a pan, while the "stock" is auto matically fed forward to begin the com plex operation again. A stream of ma chine oil pours continuously on the work to ca-rry away the heat, and the little metal cnttlngs collect in a heap under Uie machine. BEAUTIFUL WOMEN WHO ENDORSE PERUNA.
