"For the land's sake, Mclia Brown,
where did you get that arbutus so ear
ly in the season?" And Miss Jane
Prentice dropped the broota , with
which she had been diligently scrub
bing her narrow flagwalk and leaned
across the gate, her eyes alight with
"Down to Tucker's woods. There's
lots of it ou the other side of the

nervously. "Here's a little, Miss Pren

The child offered a few short stalks
crowned with the waxlike, fragrant
pink blossoms. Miss Prentice pressed
them to her face.
"My, they do smell nice and woodsy,
Mella, and I'm mighty obliged to
you. If you stop here on your way
home, I'll have something nice for you
sure, perhaps a little iced cake."
When the girl had shyly spoken her
thanks and taken herself off toward
the schoolhouse, Jane Prentice stood
for a few moments, apparently study
ing the pale pink Cowers in her hands.
In reality a peculiar upheaval was
under way, mental and moral.1 For the
first time in her life Miss Prentice,
aged forty-two, was seriously contem

she longed to learn. Yet ever between

duties and fcertiiin sltuts for girlish
ling'o'rs were the laws of the Mcdes
and the t'Oi-siuns. Every year 'the call
had come to her with the advent, 'of
spring, and every year duty as repre

There had been the walks and the
parches to scrub each day, the furni

to hatfc the moist, limp chamois 'tekin
with tuieh she weekly polished the
mahogany, table and whatrwrt in the
front room), the sheets to be turned
and reseamed and the stocking bag
that seemed never to be entirely empty.
Mrs. Trentice had -meant to do well
by her eldest daughter in thus molding
her into housewifely, forehanded hab

appointment to 'iier when Jane had re

refused them all she had no desire to

she was waiting for her day of emanci

Suddenly she rose. Something bright

sewed tuck near the waist line. When
most of the passengers had fallen
asleep, the woman's figure squared
itself around as if to screen something
in her lap.' Two work worn hands
spread out a roll of bills. Two quiver

in which rang a half sob, murmured:-'

she hesitated. The morning work in
the kitchen was not done. Dishes stood
unwashed, and the fiafs stretching
from her feet to the gate were un

spoke to her again, and with a reso
lute closing of her lips she snatched
up her pail and broom and fled to the
There she hastily packed a frugal
lunch, picked up a trowel and an old
fashioned egg basket and went her
way rejoicing, not, however, without
carefully drawing every shade and
locking every door lest some inquisi
tive caller might learn her secret and
tell the tale of her base desertion of
the household gods.
Once in the heart of Tucker's woods
she forgot oil else. It was "woodsy,"
sweet, moist, earthy. Close to some of
the rotten tree trunks snow still linger
ed, and she brushed it aside with eager
hands, searching for the rare and deli
cate arbutus blooms. When she had
filled her basket with specimens of
moss, delicate lichens and quantities of
arbutus, she sighed happily and looked
across the creek. She remembered a
hollow to which she had stolen many
springs before, where jack in the pul
pits reared their dignified heads and
modest anemones bloomed. She won
dered if that fallen tree trunk would
not be a very pleasant place on which
to spread her lunch. With all the whim
sicality of a child living out a fairy tale
she fairly skipped across the stream
and plunged through the undergrowth
into the sunlit glade.
Yes; there lay the old log, all moss
grown, with fern stalks clustered
around It. She spread out her inviting
lunch; then, with a laugh almost girl
ish, she piled some arbutus in the cen
ter as if to grace her woodland feast.
She was biting into a tasty sandwich
when a sound in the brush behind her
made her whirl round. She gave a
slight scream and turned white to her
lips. Something long and sinuous and

eyes, seemed to be crawling straight
toward her. Now the bushes rarted,

Family tradition has handed down
the following anecdote regarding the
babyhood of a gentleman, now a grand
father, who is noted among his many
friends and acquaintances for his
marked decision of character; When he
was two or three years old, he was
taken very ill, and his family in alarm
sent for the village doctor. That worthy
came and prepared a powerful dose
after the custom of those days, which
the small sufferer was forced to take in
spite of much kicking and squalling.
The next day the doctor came agaiij
and once more fixed up the cup of good
old fashioned medicine and set it be
fore the fireplace to warm. The baby
watched proceedings intently up to this
point, then suddenly slid from his
mother's lap and, toddling unsteadily
to the fire, kicked the cup tinder the

The mustache was not viewed with
favor In England in the middle of the
last century. An anecdote is told cf
the late Thomas Cooper, the English
artist, to illustrate it. He was brought
before a magistrate in 1S10 on some
minor charge and was described In the
police report as being "fashionably
dressed, with large mustaches." The
Art Journal cf the date, commenting on
it, said that "no member of the Royal
academy perpetrates the atrocity cf
mustaches, a most un-English affecta
tion." Mr. Cooper became a member of
the academy a few years later.
