the red shine ot. tl.e blazing logs, il-.e
figures coming and going like a minia

It was Dora Osgate who opened it,
aud came tinting out to tlie well, wiih
a scarlet awl fej-tooned over her head
and an empty cedar pail in. her hand.
As her light, feet patted over th3 carpel
of autumn leave in the - pathway, e!ie
fang a snatch from vhat good old-fashioned
hymn :
Hock ot ages clfl Rr m?.
, .I-t uie hide myself in thee.
"X!y goodness alive !; What's that ?"
For as the words trilled sweetly from
her tongue, a tall dark figure JriCd risen
from the low wooden bench un.ier tlie
apple tree, wlios-e branches oVerhurg
the well. j . i :, .
"Don't be alarmed," said a deep,
sweet contralto voice, with a scornful
intonation in its sound.; ,?lls iii3y-me,

"Joanna," raid ; Dora hesitatingly',
"are you hili'tgry: ?" . " . .'
"Hungry ? . l?o. ; There' a sort of a"

"Wait a minute, Joanna." . v . . ;
Like an arror Pora Oxgate shot bacS
into the house, wnero lier thrifty moth,
er was just, getting" the teapot on tin?
table. Fiwh. LaTed : waffles.? steamed
on one ride; hot biscuit werejiled in
drift of snow on the other ; preserves!
gleamed redly through the. cat glas of
the small dish, and liquid honey oozed
from lump of, comb. "Forlfg. Dca
con I'eabody and her 'daughter Com.

Oxgate 'was a housewife to be excelled
by none. .'--.. . .0
; 'Come Dora, quic with that water,"
ftaid Mrs. Oxgate, "and shut the door.
Wbat do you suppose is the use of fires,
ifL-"
"Mother," said Dora, speaking in a
slightly embarr&f Bed toiie, " Joaatta El-
field is out by the . welll She is coll
and hungry, acd "
Mrs. Oxgate's face hardened into
lines of stone. Miss Comfort Peabody
drew her skirts close around lief with
an involuntary . movement and Mrs.
Peabody. looked hard into ths bowl ot
her teacup. , - . . m , ...
"Thrin let her stay cold and Iiung'

She has run away from borne, and acted
with common, strolling play actors
she has siing at, to concerto instead of
keeping that line voice ot hers tor the
temple ot the Lord she has, of her own
ireo will, given op ill that is decent
and reputable, and people do say that
she has taken to.drinking ? And you.
eipect me to opca riy door to such as
her?" -
Mrs. Peabody uttered a sympathetic
groan.,, ... .. .
"Hutrhamnia," faltered Dora, halt
frightened, at her own iHildtiess, "doh't
yon" reroerriher that He carne to call, not
the righteous, but sinners to repent
ance?" ,
"Silence, girl 1 Hovsr dare you (uote
the Scriptures to me?' cried, Mrs. px
gale, her stern brows clouding over
darkly. ' liring in that pail of water at
once, and let us have no further dis
cussion.'' . - ...
Thus rebuffed, Theodora Oxgate
crept back into the chill, troe'y twilight
dejected andempty haurTed.
"Ah,' said Joanna Elfield, shortly.
'I thought how it would be; Well,
it's nothing new. Fyeiybody's doors
are closed aginst roc.''
"Is it true, Joanna ?" whispered
Dora, coming close to her.
Is what true?"
"That you drink." j
"Of course it's true. Yba Would
drink if" you were driven as I aas. Driv
en and hunted ! There are times when
you wo'nIJ sell your whole soul tor a
chance to bo found in drink." ,
"Oh, Joanna, I am sorry flr yon."
"Sorry ! say thai again, lass ! people
have mostly lelt off being sorry for me,"
said Jt.anna with a hard l:ui''li.
"But listen, Joanna. Dd be seriouft
Won't you do differently V"
"I am not so bad- as the folks think
me, Dora Oxgate, except the horrid
.craing for drinks I havelcen nothing
worse than wild and wt'Iftil. Dclieve
me, child, for it is God's truth. Only,
when a girl gets on the down bill
every Christian man or woman thinks
it is their duty to give her yet another
pt'bh."
'Then you will try to retrieve yoiir
own self?"
"How can I? What is there left fi.r
me?"
' Your superb toice, Joanna."
"Yost would have nia sing myself in
to fe"eclability,ch? ' And iu the mean
time I should starve."
. "You need not starve,Joanna. Here!"
Quick as gfitnifig, she drew a small
gold chain, with a locket shaped like a
hcait dangling at Its end, from her
necK. , r i ' '
Dear J oanna, ta e t TiiiJ'. . .It is vfort fi"
m'eney, f know, and it is all I have in
the world to give. Sell it and use the
money for your own needs."
Joanna Elfield started vaguely at the
gleaming trinket. "
"Are.you in Earnest, Dora ?"
"Of course I am. Ilnsh ! Mother is
calling me. I must go." ''
"God bless you tor this," said Joan
na huskily. VAu.'Dora ouo .word

,v MJS ot ?6wer, Theodora Ox-
gate threw her arms around "' tlie tall
girl's neck, a'nol . pressed her soft, cold
lips close to tl.e other's ild month.
And as t.lie did so, something ; plashed
on her cheek a hot, round tear.
i The next minute Joanna Elfield dis--
apfeared .into the. world of shaddws
that was hovering pyer all tlte aiilumri
landscajKj. And as'sfie ifei.t she" mrfV

It was Mrs. Oxgate's shrill, p'omar
TOic&i ana wrs. vxgate, helpless from
paraly'&fs, sat in Iter cu&liiotied chair iu
the snnny doorway.
"What is it, rnamma ?' as&ed Dora,
coining to the door.
The Oxgate farmhouse had drifted
sadly to decay. Fences had fallen ;
gates bung creaking on one hinge ; sun
ny pasture lands were neglected ; grass
meadows had toppled over with their
own weight ot harvest. And Mr;'Oit
rate herself looked, as she sat in tlie
dor way, like the very genius, of decay.
"The carriage with them grand peo
ple that lias bought tbe G.lenwood place.
A gentleman dr&ssed like the Prince of
Wales, and a lady whose diamonds
flash tit to blind one.- Ah me! It's a
fine thing to be young aud rich. Look!
the carriage is stopping J Pcriir ps they
hare dropped something.:. Sr. re as I live
the ladyV coming, back, trailing tier
purple silk dross in the dust like it was

wish I had my best list on."
She gave lief apton a twitch and
t,ried to settle her scant skirts over her
poor, useless .feet .as the tall, stately
figure swept Up to the door. h'
"This is the Oxgate Place, is. it not?"
the lady asked iu a deep, sweet voice,
that betrayed her at oiice. Dora an
swered promptly: t
"Thw is the Oxgsto Place ; and yoti
oio .feanna Elfield.',-. "
v "Not Joatu.a Elfield now ; but Jo
anna AveneT, she rejoined, smiling
and flushing. "Here is my husband
George, this is the friend I told you of,
Whose hatid, ten years ago, lifted me
out of the darkness aud set me in the
tight path. Oh, George., you don't
know how mucli I owe to her !"
Mrs. AVenel was weeping softly how
yet the smiles shone brightly through
her tears.
"Dora," sli3 aldel, "that was the
turning point in my life. See ! I have
jour go'd chain wiih the heart , yet. 1
knew then that one human being Jiad
tail h in ma still, and it renewed the
fountain of life within me! Dora,
Dora, you are my guardian angel
God b!ess you for it." ,, , .
I'eop'e wondered -rnuch tlt3t .those
rich Aveneis ot the Place had an insig
nificant oi it. like Dora Oxgate so much
with them, to say nothing of thai tire
rotuo pronnj old r bore, her mother.
But Mrs. Avenel was a,great lady, and
of course could be excused for having
her whirris one of vhioli was always
to wear a thread-like chain of gold
about her neck, with a heart-shaped
louket. hanging from it.
"When she could have dismonds in
stead !" said Miss Comfort Peabody,
who had of late observed that she had
always thought Joanna Elfield to be a
genius.
And Dora Oxgate, although she had
settled into a solitary, hard working
old maid, knew that her apparently
purposeles life had not been hi vain.

How Sbv Wm Saved.
At Baden Baden, about twenty yearn
ago a Hungarian count, Christian W ,
and his daughter Helen came to pass the
seasqn. The yonng comites, charming
a.nd beautiful,. aftd heiress to a large tor
tune bequeathed her by her mother, was
soon urrounded by a boat of admjrerfl.
She speedily became captivated by one
of the 'faciei-..worthless ot her suitors,
Carl M' , because he had a handsome
face, and long, black wavy hair, Wa"
gifted with extjtiisiie taste, danced
marvelonsly, and possessed rare powers
as a ctngq,K Carl was a noted gambler
and given to Jisipfrt,on and Connt
Christian. beoame posfctsed.of informal
- - ,t'v' "
tion that tlie young chevalier bad quitted
Naples in consequence ot some scandal
ous adventure in which he bad been
implicated. k "'
Helen was so completely infatiiatcd
with Carl that she gave no heed to the
advice, the prayers, or even the orders
t her father. She Would not believe
the reports of the disgraceful anteced
ents ot her, wily lover. The condition
ot affairs brought the old count, poss
essed of a remarkable, degree ot firm
ness, to the determination of originating
some plan whereby he cxid effectually
overcome the persistent efforts of CarJ
to secure.his daughter, as well as con
viuce Helen that to save her from such
an unprincipled man was a deDd of
paternal tenderness and care. .
The chevalier had contiuued adroitly
in his work ot ensnaring the young heir
ess, and finally in direct terms asked her
to elope with him. lie wrote a uotea
proposing a clandestine meeting at an
hour when her father was iu the habit
of going out to play whist with some
gentlemen of his , acquaintance, that if
she favored the proposition she wear in
her belt a rose as a" sign ot consent.
Count Christian, buying intercepted the
letter, look occasion : soon after to ap
proach Helen, and asking her to go out
with him, at the same time -bai.iling her
a flower, remarking : "Fut this in
your belt s an ornament." tShe smil
ingly obeyed. Iu tjourse of their walk
they met Carl, who bowed, and was
overjoyed to notice that Helen had
carried out his request.' t
The Count couducted . his daushter
to the residence of one of ibeir.acquain:.
ances and requested her to. wait uiitil
he called for her. This done, here
turned to tlie botlse he occupied oil. the
outskirts of Baden. lie bad sent away
his servant, and was alone. At Hire
appointed hour Carl arrived and leaped
over the garden wall." Finding the
door securely closed, 1 be eutered the
house through one .ot the windows.
V ith pleasurable excitement he hasten
ed towards : Helen's apartments but
great was his' astonishment to find tier
. . . . . . -
father armed with a brace of pistols.
