if Edith bad heard them. Ue glanced at

The rector had commenced hla sermon

Interest him. He teemed to have beard
the Biune sermon a thousand times, and
bia thoughts wandered away into other
oliiumola, TUoy went buck to the days
when he had been wont to rend the re
iponaea out ofaaMth Arnold'a prayer
book, and then he thought of the two
women he hud heard discunsingr hi case.
He looked at Edith tnrreptitiously as
the sat there listening so intently to the
torinon. and ho thought she did not look
like u girl who would cara to "dangle"
any one, tie Knew ne migni oa mis
taken, for he did not claim to know
women. No man does who has once'

They rota to ting the last hymn, and
then knelt a moment while the rector
prayed. The organitt played a low,
toli'tnn recessional and the people began
to Hi out.
They paaaed the choir gallery as they
went, and the tenor wa helping toe alto
to put on her fur.
"Mee, aaid the alto, "there I Edith

"I have something better to look at,"

Millard turned hi collar up again when
they reached the door.
"Not a long service " b said, for want
of anything better to say.
"No." auid Mia Arnold absently,
"Did yoo like the crmon."
"Well, I don't know. ! didn't bear
much of It 1 forgot to listen,"
"UhT aaid Mia Arnold, very much a
the alto bad aald It a moment before.
"1 think the eoprano would do better
If the would leave out aome of those
trill and qulria," suggested Millard,
"Do youT said Mia Arnold. "1 don't

"Ohr Mid Millard.
i"l don't think I meant that exactly,"
"What yon thought when I taid I waa
"I bad no idea yoo did."
They walked along awhile without

"What women'f" the aaked.
"In tba pew behind at."
' -'I waa I U timing to the service," re
plied Mis Arnold with dignity.
"Except when the soprano sang."
Prrattotly they reached Mias Arnold's
biiuiv. and he opened tb little Iron gate

That waa her method They were alone
when the did it. for Edith went to take

"Because," she continued, without
waiting for a reply, "because If you are,
I am glad. 1 don't like the other near

"Don't you? I'm to glad."

"Not even Edith." laid Millard sol
emnly. "Well, then." laid little ister. "Til

here any more, and I guest the wants

"Yea, and 1 thought perhaps if yon
knew you would come com more. 1 do
wish yon would. You don't tnub me

"What on earth are you two talking

room at this point
"Don't yon tell," whispered little is

"We were talking about the weather,"
he continued to Edith. "Your sister

Little lister ilid out of the room.
"That was an awful fib," she aaid to

A couple of hours later Edith lifted
ber head from Millard's (boulder and
looked up at him a trifle uncertainly.
"Foster," aha aaid, "did you near what

As mean of going through life
pleasantly the virtue of a gentle, quiet
disposition have been praised by nearly
all ages. To stand nn shaken amid tb
shock of system and the claah of world
t regarded a one of the moat valuable
attribute of the real hero and the genu
ine philosopher. 1'ossibly in the greater
crises of existence the truth of this prop,
ositlon will past unchallenged. That it
is entirely beyond criticism in eon of
those that may be oonaideiwd a of less
importance remains a qnewtion. :

who did the general housework, looked
npon him a the center and paragon of
all the virtue. In fact it wa subject
of comment between mother and daugh

them a little nor trouble.

matter of some surprise when be cane

his chamber, but scarcely had the girl
reached the lower floor when he again
called her and requested, with con
fused bluth at the inconvenience he was
causing, that she bring him another
glass of water.
This wa likewise brought up and the
previous thanksgiving waa repeated. On
this occasion, however, she bad hardly
moved from the spot when he once
more came out and repeated his former
AU wonderment, she once more filled
the glaaa, but ss he instantly reappeared

her to fill it np again, she couldn't con

of ao much water.
The red flush of painful embarrass
