Iord Caraven had accepted the fact that he did not love her with a lever's , love, and that their marriage wnt n fatal mistake Into which nit own folly bad led him and he had not changed hla opinion; he absolutely never thought of lore with reference lo her. They were good friends, with ono com mon Interest that was nil. Hut with lllldred It was not quite tho annic thing.

Hlie was kind, nffratlondto', piitlcnt': sho dovriled her self to hi servlre; but no word In dicating ii warmer feeling thun friend ship over escaped her Hp. Hlio did not even own to herself or know that alio was beginning to love him. One day, after luncheon, whon lomo visitor were Maying with thorn, tho oonversatlon turned on n certain Indy Hamilton, who had Juwt returned, u widow, from Indlu. "Udy Hamilton was one of your early loves, I'lrlr, wa ahe not?" said Hlr Itaoul, laughingly, "I suppose so," replied tho earl, rarnlsiHil). "I had n great many early loves, It one may believe all the stories told. Do you know wliat my opinion Itt" "Ko," anawtrod ilr Itaonl, "1 do not." "1 do not believe that I have ever loved at all-that It, using the word Move' In It beat nnd highest sense." "Then It I for want ot appreciation," said Hlr Itaoul, curtly. Neither of them knew that Mildred had overheard the few chance word, but they had pierced her heart aa with a two-edged sword. A kind ot jealousy that she eould not understand took poeiOH of bar. If, on looking nt picture or photographs, Uird Caraven praised one or thought is pretty, the would examine It In de tail to rind out If poMlkle what he ud mlred In It. If. In speaking ot any lady friend or visitor, the earl express ed hit admiration of her, a vague un reel would come over hit wife; she would try to underetnnd what attract ed him. Ile had a frank, careleet, easy way ot expressing himself. Often, when the heard tilm, her faee would suddenly grow pale even to her Hp. If he iored at all, he must love her. Iird Oaraven discerned nothing of this, but ilr Itaoul was more deeply vorsed In human nature, and he saw tkt the young eountsst waa beginning to lovo her husband with a paastenate love. He did not know whether to be ideated or Korry whether her love would ever be returned.

Lord Carnven'e Rest aensntlaii on rending tbe coquettish little note was not one of uiimltlgntod pleasure. They had been spending a very happy week alone, the earl, the countsea and Hlr Itaoul a week that he had thoroughly onjoyed because the greater part of It had been spent in the open air with hU wife and Ilr flaoul. They had been watching the butldere' progress, watch ing the Improvements; and the earl wna more pleased than he would have cared lo tay at seeing once more u smile on the farea around him. He did not feel quite sure at llrst that he carsd for the coming Interruption, lie gave tbe letter to Lady Caravan. "If she cornea." be aald, "It la pret ty certain, we must Invite a party to most her." The young countexa looked up. "We are a party," she tnld him "we are three." lrd Caraven Intighed.

"What does she want eligible men for?" asked lllldred; and the two gen tlemen laughed at tho qtieatlon. "Is she a widow?" continued tbe young countess. "One of the youngest, prettiest, wealthiest widows lu England. " said the carl. Udy Caraven felt a vsy no dawning of Jealous dislike. "1 am almost sorry thnt the Is com ing now," put In Sir Itaoul; "we are go very happy-all our quietness will lie brokou up and destroyed. lu hit heart Lord Car von almost re-echoed the wMi. Perhaps tho Countess of Cannon had nevor undertaken u lr.uk more un pleasant to her than tbe writing of this letter, yet It had to bo duno with all the graceful courtoey Imaginable. Then tho earl mado out a Hit at people whom ho thought tho brilliant young widow would like to meet.

"There It another thing, lllldred," aald Urd Caraven - "luly Hamilton must hare amusement. You will have to lay aside your work for a time and attend to It.

Mir Ranul laughed, and told her In hla simple chivalrous faahlon that a beautiful wri-ian could bring only sun shine and happiness; but the ycung countess sighed. "Helen of Troy did not bring muli sunshine," she said, "and she wee beautiful enough." "But." objected Hlr Ttaoul. "there la n dlffer-ncc; Udy Hamilton has her fatal loveliness.

One day ahe will have only cooked meat, another only raw, atlll another none nt all, but only fowl or bird.

Sho was nl way obeyed na respectfully as any royal queen, for her commands woro usually enforced by eueh frantic cries or omlnoua growls, that nil feared to gainsay her, or preferred to keep tho peaee. The kitchen was In the uppor story ot tho house, and when Tustlnel la wlthcd anything oxtra to eat, ahe would go upstairs to tho door, put hor head In and mew, and then turn nnd walk down, while the cook followed with tho food. The kitchen waa no place for to noble a lady to tako her meals! I have teen five plates ot' dif ferent meets brought one after another before she eould find what suited her taste.

Ho wilt look forward to the exhibitions of tho couutry fain, and strive to win prizes. Ho will hnvo a lovo for tho farm bred In him from tho start, and when ho Is a mnn he will yearn for tho happy days spent on tho farm, and will got back lo It It ho can, should ho bo Induced away. When ono becomos Interested In poultry on tho farm ho become ed ucated to an Interest In everything olio. A soon as your boy can manage them, glvo thorn a few llantams, and after ho I older itnrt him with soma pure breed ot ttnndnrd size. It U tho best plan for teaching tho boy to ro main on tho farm.

There was good reason when the country wat now for making all buildings ot wood. Forests had to be cleared away, and beforo saw mills could bo put up tht houso mado ot hewn logs, tightly framed together, mado a warm and cheap house for tho settler and hit family.
