The girl was belaboring himiii with
the switch, for sho mut.st havo noticed
his dccreasing gait. I whistled again,
and as Old Put's paco sank to a trot
she beat him fiercely with the switch.
A third whistle, and Old Put, now in
perfect accord with mec, stopped stock
still; not only that, but ho faced about
and neighed joyously The girl threw
the romains of her switch uipon the

only to inveigle 1m1 inte SOmIO ineau

to tell her to dismount in order that I
might change staddles againi, as I did
not initend to givo her antother suhl op

having had enough of that, but stood1
beside the brown hack, watching her
with a look that was now strictly mili
"'Why don't you1 help moe down?'' she

"You have declined such assistanlco

As soon1 as she was off his back Old
Put shiowed the greatest dlistrust of hecr

from lien as my hold 0on his bridle' would

with wvrathi. I- was glad that ho had
come back to his senses, and he, like 1,
should have knowvn her thoroughly from
the first atnd always.
"WoY don't intenid to be dleceivedl by

Hoe nodded his hleadl in emipha tio fash

no ether notice.
''Look well at this lady, Put," I
said. "Do yoa note her?"

She saidl nothing, but walked oni inl
the way which I had itndicated, keeping
eight or ten feet from m1o. She had
ceased1 to cry andl had giveni hon features
a fixed and angry sot.
I was troubledl greatly. WVo had

efforts to eseape that the problem of a
night's shelter had grownt mtore difll

"Hoild out your handits,"' I said.
"What would you (10?'' she asked,
turnling upon01 m11 a look of fire.
But I was firm. My expherienco haid
been tee great.
"Hoeld out your hands, " I repeated.
"I intend to bind them together. You

You aro not a gentleman.

"I iiha1l nover forgivo you, " sho said.
I could afford to laugh at such ia
"I trust that nobody will forgivo mo

She looked at me, her eyes full of ro
bellion. I thought shio was going to
raiso her hand to striko me, but -women
aro so changeablo and uncertain. In
stead she held out her hands meokly.
I bound her wrists together tad no-.

could not pain her at all, and, besides,
her hands wero hound in front of her

with an air of triumph, as miuch as to
say, "Now, 1miss; you. aro being pun

Itito busy being start,
And a thousan recollections
Weave their air-threads into woof,
As I listen to tr-e patter
Of the rain upon the roof.
Now in memory comes my mother,
As sire used, in years agone,
T> regard the darling dreamers
lire she left them t 11 the dawn;
So I see her leanring o'er me,
As I list to this refrain
Which is played upon the shingles
Dy the patter of the rain.
Then my little seraph sister,
With the wings and waving hair,
And her star-eyi-d cherub brother
A serene, angelic pair
G.i le along my wakeful pillow,
WVithr their praise or mild reproof,
As I listen to tire mrmur
Of tire soft rainr onr the roof.
An I airotirer comies, to thrill tire
WVith her eyes' delicious blue;
And I nrind riot, iusing on her,
Tirat her heart was all untrue;
I remrenmber but to love her
With a passion kin to pain,
An'l my heart's qumck pulses vibrate
To tire patter of tire rain.
Ar' hath naught of tonre or cadence
That can work wih such a spell
nx thne soul's mnysterious fountains,
WVhenrce tire tears of rapture wvell,
Ar thrat-rmrelody of nature,
rhat subdued, subduing strain
Which is played upoin the shingles
By tihe patter of tihe raiin
They say P'm "played out,
thought the poor horse, "but seemr
to me I'm worked onit."
Tire liability to disease is greatl
lersened whren tihe blood is in good con
