Both great doors of the barn were open and some lounged on the floor in u pleasant Breeze while others lingered on the coat porch of the Hosac or even explored the print dark parlor. Thirteen Strong voracious threshers were it Pitr tired for the Day Aud perhaps for several Days the length of their stay depend Long on the amount of Grain to be threshed and the durability of the machine at Job Asher s. They Hod eaten a huge dinner and there waa Only a no woman to Watt of them All.

While the men lounged and Job Asher fretted hit Sallow sad wife West stooping around the Kitchen washing the dishes and preparing things for supper. Scally it seemed her vitality must be exhausted at the next step but she knew she should keep on walking and working like a machine a Tull All which was required of her was finished. 8he had Long survived that period when she could and any pleasure in accomplishing tasks or the Thrift to which her husband exhorted her la Oor mrs. Asher waa a broken Spring a stretched out bit of elastic. The wished july were there. If Julia had gotten Home in Tinte for the threshing she have had it so hard.

It i doubtful whether jul Ltd would Ever have seen the Ina de of a boarding shool had been sending his Gurla to one and whatever Pelt Lione did Job Asher was bound either to conical or outdo. There was a feud Between the two Farmers which began with some sheep nud dogs when they were Young men Juat getting a foothold on the Soli of which both now owned to Kutny Norca. In those Days i Ettl Lione had called Job Asher a a a wooden headed ski Flint a and Job Asher had pulled la Ettl Boue a a a pulled up Booby a Aud they hint lived these neighbourly lives keeping up Mutual Viiu ounces Ever since.

Not thus was it with Job Asher mud Pett Elioue if Asher made a prayer he did to Icieg the almighty to bring Down the Stilt necked and the proud unit show them the judgment of Luul that Pelt Lione at once Felt called upon to Rise Puli out his portly person and deliver himself in or Tenent remarks of the subject of a making so Little Progress in spiritual life und remaining in their Glrst narrowness and meanness. La Ettl Bonc pro tiered in a better Way than did Job Asher. He made his Home comfortable Ami it became quite a thoroughfare of hospitality. To bundled Stock and took shares in Hanks and became quite the Grout patriarchal father of the Soli. Job Asher on Lite Oiler hand Sci out with a greedy hunger for land. He lived in the sume old House his forefathers occupied Aud added no improvements. He allowed his wife no help Aud kept Down the social and Relling wants of both Mother and daughter.

Job Asker would by the exorbitant school Bill and she might have extras if Iho la Ettl Boue girls did but clothes were another matter. Clothes were u fleeting und evanescent vanity Job Asher aimed at the solid. Julia Asher went through her collegiate year Clad worse than any other girl in the institution and tinted Aud Mortill de in every any. But she had a Brave sensible nature Aud taking hold of her advantages she tried to live in them und forgot her . Hut who likes especially at seventeen to tie an oddity und a sort of Par Luli ? times were when her life was n Burden in spite of All the Long desired adv Untules. But she found a Friend in Charley Pettibone an unexpected ally even in the midst of the enemy scamp. Charley Pettibone was the oldest soil of the family and had been u year or two at colleges a College for both Young men and Young Unten a Lief re Bis Sisters came. J ule Asher s Calico Aud rough boots attracted his notice from the contrast with the elegant mud be frizzled Young ladies who were her classmates. Her Apt recitations Aud questioning mind Matte her a Comrade for him. He Bod been brought up to think Little of the Ashers yet he beheld Oue of the class who challenged not Only his respect but his admiration. Julia was a child he Felt quite a Man and therefore when he found her one evening in the Dusky Chapel crying passionately aver some mortification and As passionately determined to endure it without asking her father Todo any thing More for her he undertook to turn sole her. He leaned against the window while Julia dried her Eye nud delivering Hunt self of his own and his father opinion declared.

But i did no to dispute my flt Here a judgment in pulling Hie in Calico did i 1�?��?T Quot Well you know lie is stingy Quot urged Charley uneasily finding herself in the predicament of having his sympathies Ali run Buck on his hands. A a Well in a thankful to has t the faults of some other people a retorted the Asher. A a i done to think my father s it Ernecl a proceeded Charles mud i must say t done to sen Why the two families have to hiker always a Aud returning to the subject tit intervals the Young Man eventually found out that two members at least of tho rival families need never differ any More. They grew to Law quite of one mind. They consulted frequently of hard questions in me rantes they Hud something to say on the languages and perhaps in a language to each other. The not dlr grow right up before the let Wilsina girls Lief re they could believe their eyes they wrote Homo to Ali eur father and by that time vacation Imd come. Pett Elioue had threshers at tils Home of that hot Duy when the letter mine stating expel cloy that Charley owned to Lieng engaged to that Asher one of his men brought the mall nud to rotund Farmer read this lilt of news of tar a delightful dinner which in Nowise Tindill fled him.

Pettibone whose Only desire was la get through with this necessity of farm life und have the House in order before the girls Cunt Home the girls who were going East with n party of schoolmates for it few weeks to return and flood the Placo with coir my a Tull Hep Tettier. Her overwork was n different kind from mrs. Asher a and perhaps carried More pleasure with it but was overwork Ull the same. A it la lie n very easy matter to Settle pct Leone was angry but la n lofty and benevolent Wuy which became u Man of his avoirdupois and in Flunce. He would just meet Charles at the Deport and have a talk with him there would lie a Good of for Lunty for the girls were not coming Home and they would have the Carriage to themselves. Charles was the eldest and his Pride lie would Send the Young Man East for a time until he overcame his fancy. He did no to know though but it would tie better to let the boy Sec that Asher girl at Home that would cure him Pettibone left his threshers to attend to their business and drove slowly toward the station to meet tho train. It was u very hot Day to was inclined to get along slowly and As he passed the Lane leading up to Asher a it occurred to him to go la Aud have a word with Job. If Job a girl had any design on Charles he would have it out with Job himself. Asher s men Hod gotten reluctant a up to resume Ali eur labors and he was perspiring with no inward fire of haste us great As the outward heat of the Sun. Job Asher was a lean Brown sharpened Man Aud Pettibone looked at Bint with All his old dislike intensified. Mrs. Asher hearing Carriage wheels came to the door and looked out eur girly the eagerness died out of her Fitce Aud she shrunk Back hiding her soiled apron As she saw her neighbor. 8he thought Julia had coma from the train ller husband had no time to go after the child to Day.
