Now he listened to bis voice come to ber through the glossy laurel leaves, and heard these words: t "I tore yon, Rose, I love you. I have fought ngainst it, but I have no power to resist my emotions. Why are you bo cruclf" It was to hor cousin Rosa t,h*t Frank Anbury spoke, And Robo answered: "It fs only that you startled me, so. I thought you came to see Cousin Sybil. I believe she considers you engaged to her. I have always thought you were." ' "Have you f" saidPrank Aubury. "Well, I will tell the simple truth; that would have happened if I had not met you. I'm very foud of her yet in a brotherly sort of. way, you know. She's awfully good, and her fortune is not to be forgotten. But I worship you; lamas much in love with you as a man can be with a woman. Yes, if you had uot come I should have married Sybil.  But you did come." Sybil turned softly away, thinking how much trouble she had taken to coax ber cousin Rose to come to visit her In quiet old Pnrkertown, thinking that it was all hor own fault that she had been thrown in Frank Anbury's way. Frank was very handsome, and Rose had gu occupation for her idle hours. She had known that ho was Sybil's lover; that If not engaged they understood each other; and she had deliberately gone to work to sob hor of hiB heart. Deliberately. She had seen it, too, and hud trusted him. Perfect love had cast out jealousy. She had landed that Roso might amuse herself witbmit harming her. "Idtotl" she said to herself. "Ah, we pay as dearly for our fully as for our Crimea." And then a stern resolve poa-sewed her. Suffer as Bhe might, no one should know it. She would take the mat-tor into her own hands. That evening she had a conversation with Frank Aubury which sent him from her with his blood boiling. He was ready to jilt her, but he was uot as ready to be Jilted.  That is quite another thing. "I've been wrong, I think," she had said, "to let you fancy that I might be won. I have had a fit of remorse about it. I shall never marry a man who cannot give me ' ' ' At first 1 thought you would be ble to do that, but you seem content to where you uro.    1 liko you Hither, but no more, and we Khali bo ids, shall we not? 1 uclvd well, und she made him feel aa that he should, and afterward ^mI to Rose. know why I sent fur you?" she ted to find n wife for Frank fancied he liked me und I L'ed him, but it would never j-and-twenty.

Frnnt, in a charming casntDere dressing gown, with the attention of a hair dresser, was handsome once more, and was Rood enough to call Sybil their guardian sngel. A little girl was hired to assist In the ire of the poor baby, and Rose, In her new dress, was perpetually going out to call, to walk, to shop. Sybil kept her pnrss fall, and Frank besought his cousin to stay -to read to him, to sing to Mm. They had a little Upright piano which Hose never touched. She did all he asked, and every hour deepened her thankfulness that she was not bU wife, and added to her disgust for bis contemptible character. Moreover, she exerted herself among some friends she had, and obtained for her eon sin's husband a position which he could fill as soon as his health permitted. Bhe was very anxious to return home-anxious to begin to be happy again, as Bhe could not be where these two unfortunate people quarreled perpetually; but sho resolved not to leave them until her duty was done. Of the climax that approached she did not guess. It came like a thunder clap. - One day as she was Bitting near the window with the baby in her lap-Rose staying unusually long abroad that day-a messenger Iwy brought a note to the door. He gave it to Frank, who opened it, read It and uttered a furious oath. "Read it," he said. Sybil caught the paper that he flung toward hor.  It bore these words: There goes bis coach I" "The coach?' 4 *The pro feasor's hearse!" "Oh, my, what a lark it would be->* "Wsll, why not to-night, sb.boysf NoW's our time.  What do you say!" A group of half a dosen boys stood in the shadow of one of the white pillared, brick paved, cloister like colonnades, or "rows." watching an old fashioned chaise as it came up the road from tta town, and passed around to the rear of one of the nrofessors' residences-that of Professor I am off.

Oood-by, forever. Thank (foodnessl Rosa And I am not able to follow her to kill them both," gasped Frank. "Ob.myGodl" and he wept with rage and shame. Knowing all she knew, Sybil found it hard to pity him. Still when afterward he asked her if she would take the child under her care Bhe said "yes" for the baby's sake.       *�*� Two years aftor this Fvank Aubury went alowly up the path that led to that pretty homestead on the hill, where behind the laurels Sybil bad listened to his words to her cousin Rose. That was not yet five years ago, but ten should not harechanged ' im >ri. He was thin and woru aud limped little, and his skin w&a gray, and the lank of a man who was dissatisfied with life was in his eyes. He thought how com fortablu all this was as he outercd the broad, well furnished hall, and was shown nto tbo wide parlor in which Sybil sat reading to a pretty little girl. Sybil handsomer than ho ever thought she could be. "My poor girl, 1 suppose," ho wud, looking at the child after Sybil had given him her hand. "Kiss your father, my dear. That is the proper thing, I suppose;" but the child was shy and ran out of the room calling to her nurse. I deserve it," said he. "I never oven named her.  What do you call her?" Frank," said Sybil; "Frances she was ihrislened." 'I'm glad it was not Rose," said be. 'Rose Is dead, Sybil.  She sent for me to come to her.  She died in a hospital-mere wreck." There was silence; then he said: "Sybil, you were my first love, and have never ceased to love you.   Rose bowl tchod me, but I repented before our honeymoon was over.   Sybil, I love you Btill.   Can't you let the past die out of memory?  I-I'm not so bud a fellow aa you think." Sybil looked at him gravely. "Stop!" she said.   "Long ago when you had mado love to mo very ardently I came to liko you.   1 heard you talking to Rose behind the laurels, and I took my love by the throat and strangled it; and now-look this is my engagement ring.   I um to be married to-morrow to oue I uot only love, but csiocm, nnd all memory of tbe past sorrow is hlottJd out.   You did not make my poor cousin huppy, Frank; you drov her to her fate.  Sbo saved me from much sorrow when she, as you say, bewitched you." There was a pause. "I hope you are getting on well," Sybil said, after a while. Oh, yes," he answered, "if drudgery for bread and butter Gils the bill." Then be arose.   "Good-by," ho said. They did not shake hands this time, and neither Sybil nor his little girl ever saw Frank.

For the scene we are describing was at tbe University of Virginia, at Charlottesville, an Institution with a history. A few miles down the Rlvanna river, under the shadow of the Little Mountain, stood tho colonial homestead whereTnomaa Jefferson was born 147 years ago. The future framer of tbe Declaration of Independence nnd third president of the United States whs, from all account*, an exceedingly live and spirited youth. Ills student days were spent at Williamsburg, the colonial capital of Virginia, down in tbe peninsula or southeastern portion of the state, midway between the York and James rivers. Here was the seat of the renowned William and Mary college, the most ancient institution of learning in thin country after Harvard. "Tom" Jefferson figured prominently in many a college escapade, and In letters of his, which are still preserved, he habitually calls the venerable; town "Devihburgh." WVn JeffersOU fcAcarae a man he realized at least one of the dreams of his youth by acquiring the magnificent lands upon and around Mont Hello (Italian for Little Mountoin^nnd building upon tbe summit the classIg and stately mansion that was his home during the remainder of his long and illustrious life. In the same elegant and substantial style of architecture as his own mansion he drew the plans for what be intended should be the noblest university buildings on this continent. The construction of these buildings, on the opposite edge of Charlottesville from Monticello, Jefferson personally superintended, and watched eagerly from the portico of liis home on the mountain, four or five miles away. He was in every sense of the word the "Father of the University of Virginia"-a title beloved by him and embodied in the simple epitaph prepared by him for his tomb, which even omits mention of the fact that he was president of the United States of America. Considering how much of "Tom" Jefferson's own buoyant personality went into the organization of the university, it is not surprising that traditions of mirth and jollity should have been handed down from one generation of students to another, even unto this day. It has been tbe alma mater of many of the south's most brilliant men. including the poet, Edgar Allan Poe. Each one of these, without a doubt, left the impress of his peculiar personality upon the unwritten chronicles of the institution's merry making, and when on a modern field day or festival you see a rakish looking student wearing a blue ribbon badge with some such mystic inscription as "Eli Banana" you may be sure bo is up to a considerable amount of surreptitious fun. The half doten hopeful youths introduced at the opening of this sketch were riot unworthy inheritors of the traditions or Charlottesville. Two of them carried in their pockets bits of iron that had once been a part of the hour hand of the great clock over the main portico below the dome of tbe rotunda, and which had been purloined iv dead of night at tuo im minent risk of somebody's neck. At least t-hreo of the number could have told-but wouldn't-why the bell sometimes refused to ring, und how it happened that one Sunday morning a live bear was prowling about iu the chapel, and came within an uca of breakfasting upon a doctor of divinity. Not one of the six was .1 stronger upon Vinegar Hill, a locality knnwn to student*, and where the midnight oil is burned not necessarily over books und study. So they stood in tbe curvo of the brick wall aud discussed their plan of campaign with all the directness and audacity of veterans. "The roads are in good condition," one was saying, "and the old trap will ruii easily." "As noiselessly as a ghost," put in Becond. Th�s allusion to supernatural travelers did not set1 in to be relisued by othere of the party, one of whom remarked aa he glanced at the sky: "It won': be pitch dark, will it? We wont to be able -x> see our way, you know." "Oh, don't you fret," spoke out Zach BlaUey, who was apparently the organizer aud leader oi the enterprise iu hand. "The gravestones are white, anyhow, and It'll have to be a pretty black midnight when we can't soe them. Now remember the signal: When tbe tree toad croaks three times you fellows are to glidu like specters from your studious chambers, Hit along under the in!;y shadows of the passages and join me under the old tulip tree bock of the professors' row. Then and there will begin the night's work destined to 00-come historic as The mystery of old \Ws coach.' Let every man do his duty, and mum's the word." Each boy placed his forefinger upon his sealed lips in token of inviolable secrecy, and so they dispersed amidst tbe deepening shades of the somber autumn twiliglt. Just before the stroke of midnight three distressful sounds, which u powerful imagination might possibly have credited to the vocal organs of a very dissipated tree toad, might have been heard-and were heard by at least five pairs of uuxlously listening ears-proceeding from the gloomy shadows of au antique tulip tree that stood a little distance buck of one of the brick ruv/s bounding the lawn, or campus, on each side. A moment or two later live auspicious looking figures emerged from as many different quarters aud made stealthily for the spot where Zoch Ulukcy was impersonating the tree tiMd, "tor this occasion only," with such iudiiferent mucccss. No time was lost in conference. The tiuie lor action had arrived.

They Btood about in silence. The fun had all oozed out of their adventure. . It Is possible that the boys, or at any rate their leader, had some deunite plan for the disposal of the vehicle that they had rolled all the way out there from the university, but whatever their intentions may have been they were never carried out. As they stood huddled together In front of the receiving vault, more than one of them secretly quaking with fear, thequery was ventured: "Well, what had we better do "Turn around and go bock!" This was the response Umt electrified them, yet noue of tne six boys had uttered it. Tho muffled voice had proceeded either from the interior of the coach or from the granite vault-they couldn't tell which, "I say, you had better turn the carriage around and take it back to the university," repeated the voice, in harsh, dry accents, which now the young scapegraces could not tall to recognize. It was Professor W-, and none other, that spoke. Could it bo possible that- For answer to this unuttercd question tie giant* window panel of the coach door slid aside with a vicious slam and out popped a bead. A vivid flash of lightning revealed for an instant the features of the professor of mathematics-a couutenance not benign at best and now looking posi tively baleful in tho electric glare. Tbe thought came tu Zach Blakey, and doubtUss to his comrades, to make a bolt and escape in the darkness; but there was the coach blocking the way between them and the gate. Then the professor turLed a dark bmtp.ru upon them, and their hopes of avoiding recognition were abruptly ended "Professor, stammered Zach, desperately, "we bad no Intention of"- "Oh, of course not. You had not the least intention of bringing me out here and still less of carrying me back. But it's a poor rule thr.t won't work both ways. A storm is about breaking, bo it will he necessary for you to mako the best time possible back to the university. Come-1 insist." The weary, crestfallen lads doggedly picked up the shafts, backed the lumbering coach out of tbe cemetery irate and started on their homeward march. The road was slightly down hill now or they conld scarcely have borne the fatigue. The thunder storm got ahead of them despite their best efforts, and bursting with terrific fury drenched them to the skin as they cunie down the homestretch. When they hud finally got the coach safely boused back of the row the professor stepped out quite gayly and said: "Young gentlemen, 1 thank you all for the trouble you have, taken on my account. You hod better hurry to your rooms as get Into dry cloth hi g as soon aa possible. Oood night.' The next day the six were in mortal terror of being called before the faculty, but the summons never came.
