Copyright 1909, by associated literary press Virginia sat Down before the Glass and took Stock of herself in minute 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 to take her driving. But Virginia sat still. She had just been making a Resolution never to go driving with him again and Here he was. She clinched her hands tight. Just this once she pleaded to her ton science. Her eyes met the longing ones in the Glass. Just this once and i la Tell him. I will be honest. His heart Shan t break even if mine she turned to her sister. Dorothy dear Tell or. Bridges i la be right Down she said gently. Then she Rose and put on her hat. It did seem so Good to be sitting be Side 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 hard 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 loaned 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. Virginia dear Little girl she knew what must come after those words but she could not speak. Virginia his eyes held hers a love you then he smiled his Swift gentle smile As if her silence Hyvl re assured 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 until his changed White face stopped her. Virginia what Are you saying promised you ? i will not believe his Stern voice braced her. Of but you must you must she said. I will not believe it. I will not be Lieve that you do not care for me that you have led me on just for Pas time. It in t True is it dear his voice had softened again. put his Arm about her and Drew her against him until her Cheek touched his. Tell me All about it he urged. I must know it All. There is some mis take somewhere i am sure. Tell me he released her gently and waited. Virginia gathered herself together desperately. Ill Tell you everything Arthur she said. 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 begin Ning and Tell it All and then you May think what you please of it happened ten years ago when 1 was about eighteen and Andrew two years 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 he was so Good hearted and gentle. One night when we were walk ing Home from Church he asked me to marry Virginia hurried a Little. 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 so much in Earnest that i promised before i thought. Then i was fright ened because i knew my people would never consent to it. My Mother always said she was afraid Andrew would be just like his father and never amount to anything. So we decided to keep our engagement a secret. 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 nug gets 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 t like the West very Well and his father was disappointed but they would have to stay there until they had earned Money enough to get Back Home with. Well i Don t know l 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. Be sides he and his father were constantly on the move. I think they must have travelled the West Over pretty thoroughly. The last time t 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. You Are the first person i Ever told this to she said looking earnestly at. Arthur. 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. You really think Virginia that an Drew will come Back he asked. Yes i really think and you will marry him if he does Virginia turned very Pale. You see Virginia Bridges went on gently i have some old fashioned notions about these things. Unless you lore him you have no business to marry him. Wore you Twenty times promised to him. It would not be fair to him and it would be most in just to Virginia never had though of that. Now i la Tell you what i shall do for i think i have something to say in this matter. I will wait intone More year for Andrew to put in Xis appear Ance just one year not a Day More or less and if he does t come then i shall the you for myself. Do you understand me. Virginia she looked at him with a brighten ing face. 15ut the brightness quickly faded like the Light from a Sunset Cloud. And if he does come she gasped Why then that s a matter for your own deciding if you love him enough to marry him. Marry him. But if you Don the smiled you d 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 6 by the clock when plume trotted Down the Long Street and left Virginia at her own door. She ran into the House Urpin Zingher hat As she ran. Jer Mot Lior came in from the dining room with a dish in her hand. Virginia guess who has come while you be been gone she said. I Don t know she faltered. 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. was t dressed any better than he was when he went away. I guess he has t brought much Back with hire except his wife. s married Virginia Sank trembling into a chair. So mrs. Ward says. She s been Over to the hotel to see Dorothy danced in from the Kitchen. Mamma she bawled the Tea is boiling Over 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 House. Lie entered the Library where Virginia sat weeping softly from Joy. My own sweetheart he exclaimed As he took her in his arms. There is no one Between us now. Andrew Hall has just come Back with his i know. Mamma just told me and and i am so glad Arthur said at last. On one occasion a Highland minister called upon or. Alexander Whyte of Edinburgh for some financial assist Ance 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 Dis inclined to give and ungracious in Man Ner. Nettled at his reception the High Lander answered brusquely. Resent ing the tone the Rich Man asked and whom do Yon take me for a fire deserving sinner like my self came the Quick retort. Returning to or. Whyte he explained the circumstances. You did not say that eagerly asked the doctor. Aye i replied the other. Well Well i be been wanting to say that to him for the last fifteen years Here s a five Pound note for your fund."?Dundee advertiser. An Independent Miller. When Frederick built Bis famous Palace of sans Souci there happened to be a Mill that greatly hampered him in the execution of his plans and he 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 de Mand 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 Bim and said in an an Gry tone Why do you refuse to sell your Mill notwithstanding All the advantages i have offered you the Miller repeated his reasons. Do you know continued the King that i could take it without giving you a Penny yes returned the Miller calmly if it were not for the chamber of Justice at the King was so flattered by this answer which showed that he was inca Pable of an act of injustice that he dismissed the Miller without further entreaty and changed the plan of his Garden. A philosopher s fable. Arthur Aull is Wespon Sable for this one 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. Moral.? does t make much difference after All whether you Are a Genius a Sage or a fool. You la get it sooner or later Exchange. Defying death. There is no use of Reading any More rules about How to live a Long time an old lady 100 years old has eaten new England doughnuts All her life.? Birmingham age Herald. The official Goat your wife does t seem to cart much for that Friend of no. s the Man i Lay the blame on when i m detained downtown."? Philadelphia i Ost. ?. Teaching horses to jump. There Are three methods used coax ing lunging and driving. There Are three methods of teaching a horse to leap coaxing lunging and driving in the coaxing method the Young horse i mined into a Small paddock having a Low hedge or hurdle across the Center in Plain View of the Pupil a rider on a Veteran jumper should take him Over the hurdle Sev eral times. The Trainer then goes to tha 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 at tend a novel performance when a heavy Burden oppresses the strength and whip and Spur distract the at Tention. The horse s body says coun try 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 lung ing. 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 things considered the driving method is tie 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 prac tical lessons begun. Almost any Young horse can be taught to leap. Of course his proficiency 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 s 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 if a Man s 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 in compatible. What ethology would make him do i hardly dare to think.? Chesterton in illustrated London news. More accurate. The pastor and his wife had called upon a member of the congregation a widow with a Small but exceedingly Lively boy and were on their Way Home.
