a late hour intheconutry and still
the visitor lingered.
The two drew near the curtained
window. Miss Simmons' perfumed
hair swept very near her compan
ions's cheek. It was nearly mid
night, the hour ot spells. A strange
litrht clowed tin in Jss Simmons'
eye, the red rose on her bosom shone
splendidly. Jt was an alluring vis
ion for a plan lumberman; a lux
ury of rest stole over him ; he felt
himself being drawn nearer and
nearer this haven of silks and laces

J rue enough. A sinister hloom,
a roseate fever line, rested redly in
the heavens, solemn and portentious.
Evidently there must be a lite.
"I'll go down to the gate, said
Mr. David, rousing himself, "and
see where it is."
How absorbed he had been ! The
village bells at that moment rang
out a wild peal; he could hear the
tramo ot feet along the road. A
lumbering engine from a neighbor
ing town came creaking rnstily up
the street. 7'he whole place was

a man running by.

that David was leaving pleasant
company in very abrupt fashion ; he

Mm Simmons. Mte was sate,
A dense crowd gathered about
the street where the flames were
makiiic silent headway. The en-
nine was late, and, little used, was
long in getting under way. Mean
time buckets ot water were oemg
passed from hand to hand. It was
slow work very slow work ; the
fire was evidently gaining strengin,
and every wooden building in the
neighborhood loomed redly in the
blaze, transformed from tho white
peacefulness of yesterday, angry, in
cendiary, threatening danger to the
whole town. The great tree in front
of Hannah's door crackled wun ror
vent heat: door and passage were
enveloped in smoke and flame.
"Any one insider asked Laviu,

toward the window, iotent, mlent

"Ware!" cried a voice: and at
that moment the great beam over
the shop window fell with a crash.
There was a cry that the wall was
falling, and Job Winters in his fire
man's cap, appeared amidst the
j shower of tailing timber, and was
j let down ny a rope
In the confusion David was drair-
ged, stunned and dizzy, from the
center of danger and flung out of
the way on the other side of the
ffreat tree. A dead faint seemed
I fallen upon him. Presently a sound .
aroused him a stir, a strange ex
citement among the crowd, a hum
rising to a huzza.
1 leside him under the great tree
stood a little woman, her face black
ened with smoke, her raiment burn
ed to shreds ; by either hand she
held a barefoot lad, scarcely yet
awake from stupefying sleep.
"By tlie Lord, but you're a brave
little woman 1" cried Job Winters,
singed and smiling. "I thought

"Oh, Job, trust a woman's wit
for that. I climbed out through
the back-yard, and was scrambling
over the fence with the boys when
tlie wall fell. Arc you hurt Dave?"
she asked, taking up a tin cup and
sprinkling his face witb water. How
calm and quiet she was, as if it were
the most natural tbing in the world
that they should be together in

"Hush ! don't speak ot it now. 1
have not lost faith in myself."
" Hut you have in me."
David looked wistfully at the
scarred face of the little woman, her
shredded garments, her quiet, lu
minous eyes, lie stood in the tad
ing blaze that had consumed all her
possessions, shining like an angel.
"Only one thing I will say, Han
uah ; we are old friends, and old
friends may speak their minds to
each other, may they not?"
"I suppose so, David; but the
boys are drenched through, and if
you are able to walk"
"Just one word, Hannah. Where
is the fellow that yoo were waiting
tor all this time in tlie little shop?"
A great change passed over Han
nah's face. She stood utterly still,
as one who has seen a vision. Then
she laughed out-right
"David," said she, "lie m here
tinder this great tree, halt drowned
and smudged and smutted. I think
he has a scorch on his forehead,

"You must make my little wife
excuse me to you tor leaving so ab
ruptly on the night of the fire,"
said David one day, coming upon
Miss Simmons, at the village store.
