Copyright 1909, by associated literary press Virginia sat Down before the Glass and took Stock of herself in Minuto and critical fashion. When a woman has reached her Twenty eighth year she is either at her worst or her Best and Virginia was at her Best. Her Glass told her that and the faces of her friends of her own age who had faded about her until she was left like the one perfect Flower in a Cluster conspicuous by her brightness. Her Little sister had just announced that or. Bridges had driven up in front of the House and was waiting a to take her driving. But Virginia sat still. She had just been making a Resolution never to go driving Alfh him again and Here he was. She clinched her hands tight. A just this once Quot she pleaded to her a on science. Her eyes met the longing ones in the Glass. A just this once and ill Tell him. I will be honest. His heart Shane to break even if mine she turned to her sister. A Dorothy dear Tell or. Bridges ill be right Down a she said gently. Then she Rose and put on her hat. It did seem so Good to be sitting beside him again if Only it were not for that miserable thing which she had promised herself she would make known to him before the drive was ended. She looked at his face. It was such a Strong Good face. Of it would be bitterly Bard to Tell him he seemed to have something on his mind too he was so grave and silent and whenever he looked at her it was with quiet penetration. Virginia leaned Back against the thick Cushion trying to steady herself. She did not notice that plume had stopped trotting and was walking slowly. But when a hand fell Over hers she started and looked into the eyes of the Man whose face had come suddenly near to hers. A Virginia dear Little girl a she knew what must come after those words but she could not speak. A a Virginia a his eyes held hers a i love you a then he smiled his Swift gentle smile As if her silence had reassured him. That smile seemed to break the spell. Virginia remembered that she Drew her hand from his and began to say something wildly what she did not know 110111 his changed White face stopped her. A Virginia what Are you saying promised you ? i will not believe his Stern voice braced her. A ooh but you must you must a she said. A a i will not believe it. I will not believe that you do. Not care for me that you have led me on just for pastime. It Isnit True is it dear a his voice had softened again. put his Arm about her and Drew her against him until her Cheek touched his. A Tell me All about it a he urged. A i must know it All. There is some mistake somewhere i am sure. Tell me he released her gently and waited. Virginia gathered herself together desperately. �?o111 Tell you everything Arthur a she said. A i promised myself that i would before this drive was ended. I should have told you before Only i could not somehow. I shall begin at the beginning and Tell it All and then you May think what you please of a it happened ten years ago when 1 was about eighteen and Andrew two years older. We had known each other always. lived in that Little Gray House next to ours until his father got into some financial difficulty and lost what property he had. Or. Hall never could get along somehow. I always liked Andrew better than any other boy be Wras so Good hearted and gentle. One night when we were walking Home from Church he asked me to marry Virginia hurried a Little. A it was june and there was Beautiful Moonlight. I had never dreamed of marrying him or anybody then but he looked so handsome and he seemed to much in Earnest that i promised before i thought. Then i was frightened. Because i knew my people would never consent to it. My Mother always said she was afraid Andrew would to just like his father and never amount to anything. So wre decided to keep our engagement a secret. A just after that or. Hall was taken with a great desire to go West. knew he could do something out there. I think he had an idea that Gold nuggets could be picked up like acorns. Anyway he was perfectly crazy to go and he went and took Andrew with him. We wrote Back and Forth pretty steadily for awhile. Andrew did no to like the West very Well and his father was disappointed a but they would have to stay there until they had earned Money enough to get Back Home with. Well i done to know i was in school and there were so Many things to take my time that i guess i grew careless about writing and Andrew seemed to grow just As careless himself. Besides he and his father were constantly on the move. I think they must have travelled the West Over pretty thoroughly. The last time i heard from Andrew was three years ago. said he was still trying to get Rich and talked of going to the Klondike. I answered the letter but perhaps he never got it. A you Are the first person i Ever told this to a she said looking earnestly at Arthur. A i he said quietly. thought he could understand what manner of Man it was that would keep a girl to a foolish Promise in this Way for eleven years. A you really think Virginia that Andrew will come Back a he asked. A yes i really think a and you will marry him if he does Virginia turned very Pale. A you see Virginia a Bridges went on gently a i have some old fashioned notions about these things. Unless you love him you have no business to marry him were you Twenty times promised to him. It would not be fair to him. And it would be most unjust to Virginia never had thought of that. A now ill Tell you what i shall do for i think i have something to say in this matter. I will wait jus Leone More year for Andrew to put in 7i7s appearance just one year not a Day More or less and if he does no to come then i shall take you for myself. Do you understand me. Virginia a she looked at him with a brightening face. But the brightness quickly faded like the Light from a Sunset Cloud. A and if he does come a she gasped. A Why then that a a matter for your own deciding. If you love him enough to marry him. Marry him. But if you done to he smiled a a you a better marry some one you during the rest of the drive Virginia sat trying to realize things. She could not be thankful enough that she had told him and he did not despise her. It was g by the clock when plume trotted Down the Long Street and left Virginia at her own door. She ran into the House Unpi nning her hat As she ran. Her Mother came in from the dining room with a dish in her hand. A Virginia guess who has come while you be been gone a be said. A i done to know a be faltered. A Andrew Vilall would you believe it i thought i knew him when i saw him go by in the bus. Afterwards mrs. Ward came in and told me. Wasny to dressed any better than he was when he went away. I guess he Hasni to brought much Back with him except Liis wife. a a married a Virginia Sank trembling into a chair a so mrs. Ward says. She a been Over to the hotel to see Dorothy danced in from the Kitchen. A Mamma a she bawled a the Tea is boiling Over Quot mrs. Swift hurried out and Virginia her hands pressed to her throbbing heart understood the situation. A few minutes later Arthur Bridges drove up to the Bouse. entered the Library where Virginia sat weeping softly from Joy. A my own sweetheart a he exclaimed As he took her in his arms. A there is no one Between us. Now. Andrew Hall has just come Back with his a i know. Mamma just told me and a and i am so glad Arthur a said at last. On one occasion a Highland minister called upon or. Alexander Whyte of Edinburgh for some financial assistance for the work in the North. Or. Whyte regretted that he could not afford to assist the Highlander but advised him to visit a wealthy Layman in the City. Going to the House of the wealthy Layman the Highlander found him disinclined to give and ungracious in manner. Nettled at his reception the Highlander answered brusquely. Resenting the tone the Rich Man asked a and whom do you take me for a a a fire deserving sinner like myself a came the Quick retort. Returning to or. Whyte he explained the circumstances. A you did not say that a eagerly asked the doctor. A Aye i did Quot replied the other. A Well Well in be been wanting to say a that to him for the last fifteen years Here a a five Pound note for your advertiser. An Independent Miller. A when Frederick built his famous Palace of sans Souci there happened to be a Mill that greatly hampered him in the execution of Bis plans and be asked the Miller for How much he would sell it. The Miller replied that for a Long series of years his family had owned the Mill which had passed from father to son and that he would not sell it for any Price. The King used every solicitation offered to build him a Mill in a better place and pay him besides any sum he might demand but the obstinate Miller still persisted in his determination to preserve the inheritance of his ancestors. Irritated at last by his conduct the King sent for him and said in an angry tone a Why do you refuse to sell your Mill notwithstanding All the advantages i have offered you a the Miller repeated his reasons. A do you know a continued the King a that i could take it without giving you a Penny a a yes a returned the Miller calmly a if it were not for the chamber of Justice at the King was so flattered by this answer which showed that he was incapable of an act of injustice that he dismissed the Miller without further entreaty and changed the plan of his Garden. Teaching horses to jump. There Are three methods used coaxing lunging and driving. There Are three methods of teaching a horse to leap coaxing lunging and driving. In the coaxing method the Young horse is turned into a Small paddock having a Low hedge or hurdle across the Center in Plain View of the Pupil a rider of a Veteran jumper should take him Over the hurdle several times. The Trainer then goes to the opposite Side with a measure of Corn or Oats and Calls the horse shaking up the Grain and pouring it with his hand Back and Forth in the receptacle. The Boundary will soon be cleared and when a few mouthfuls have been eaten the station of the instructor should be at the other Side of the hurdle and the lesson repeated. If this be done daily the hurdle May be gradually heightened. The habit of jumping is thus acquired without those risks which attend a novel performance when a heavy Burden oppresses the strength and whip and Spur distract the attention. The horses body says country life in America is not partially disabled by the imposition of a heavy Load before the Powers Are taxed to the utmost and his capabilities Are unfettered. The second method is termed lunging. A Long rein or Cord is attached to the bit and the animal is exercised in a Circle in which a hurdle has been placed or a shallow ditch dug. A Long lashed whip used Only to keep him in motion or lightly applied at the proper moment will keep him up to his work. Soon the horse will enter into the spirit of the occasion and by unmistakable signs will Manifest his enthusiastic enjoyment of the exercise. The third method driving is exactly what its name implies. At first the obstruction should be slight. Any open space will answer the purpose an Earth or Sod surface or Tan bark being preferable. Long reins a straight bar or snaffle bit a Long whip and patience and perseverance Are required. All tilings considered the driving method is f lie quickest and surest Way of teaching the horse to leap. When he has become somewhat proficient having thoroughly Learned what is required of him. The Saddle May be called into requisition and the practical lessons begun. Almost any Young horse can be taught to leap. Of course his profi Cie icy will depend on the care bestowed on his training and on his general characteristics of wind limb and nerve. An Ordinary cob or Morgan will attain the proficiency of an Irish Hunter but any horse that is used for a Saddler will be of far greater value his owner if he can be taken occasionally for a Cross country ride and put Over ditches and Low obstructions. Ethics and morality. If a woman a husband has been silly enough to take More wine than is Good for him. Morality would Lead her to Send him to bed. Ethics would Lead her to Send him to Coventry. And ethology would probably Lead her to Send him to a penal settlement for inebriated so if a Many a wife throws a Teapot at him As happened recently in the aristocratic neighbourhood in which i live morality would Lead him to go out of the House for an hour or so and give her nerves a Chance. Ethics would probably induce him to go out of the town and write to her from a Garden City that their temperaments were incompatible. What ethology would make him do i hardly dare to Chesterton in illustrated London news. A philosophers fable. Arthur Aull is a Epson Sable for this one a Folly Genius and common sense once went walking and name to a Stream. Genius having his head in the Clouds naturally started to Wade across paying no attention to the depth. The Waters soon went Over his head and he was drowned. Common sense hunted for a Safe Way to get across and finally he found a foot log. As he got out about the Center of the Stream the log swayed and he fell into the water and Sank to Rise no More. Folly stopped at the Bank of the Stream to amuse himself by throwing pebbles into the water and watching the Waves. sat upon the moist cold Bank until he caught a cold which developed into pneumonia of which he soon died. does no to make much difference after All whether you Are a Genius a Sage or a fool.
