It was a spacious, roomy kitchen, fur

at the other, twoor three girls sat around
a table, working worsteds by the light
of a solar lamp, while Ralph Davenant,
? the farmer, lay fast asleep on the chintz-
' cushioned lounge, lulled by the continu
ous rushing sound of the great western
river that bounded one extremity of his
domains. ; j
Guy Davenant sat near the girls a
a tall, splendidly moulded young Apollo
of the forest, with shady hazel eyes, and
hair curling in black, silky rings all over

"Not that I care for Agnes, though
-she is pretty enough to turn any man's
head," thought the willful young man,
"but IH teach those girls to treat her a
little more civilly. What right have
they to bully and insult herl I won't
have it" "
And so, although Miss Dickson had
been invited to make a visit to the West
era wildernesses, specially to carry out
a darling design of Julia and Clara
Davenant, that a " match" should be
struck up or, perhaps, "ignited" would
be the proper term between her and
their brother Guy, the young gentleman
persisted in treating her with nothing
more than. regulation civility. 1
"It's too mean," said Clara, pouting.
,"When Helena has such a nice little
property of her own, too," added Julia.
And "Helena, herself, who was getting
into the sere and yellow leaf of maiden
hood, curled her hair and anointed her
cheeks with Rose-bloom " more vigor
ously than ever, for Guy Davenant was
a husband well worth angling for.

It was a bright, frosty afternoon in

September, and pretty warm J at that,
and after walking up and down the
ravines I began to get pretty tired. ., I
was not so heavy then as I am "now, and
did not weigh more than a couple of
hundred pounds. As I said, I was a lit
tle tired, and so on the top of the ridge
I sat down, by the side of a smooth
chestnut stump about twelve or fourteen
feet high. I hadn't sat there more than
a minute until I heard something inside
the stump, and soon made : out that it
was a couple of cub bears playing with
I looked on all sides of the stump to
find an opening, but none was to be
seen. Then I happened to notice the
marks of claws up the side of the stump,
and I understood it The hole went in
at the top. I set my gun against a bush,
up-ended the branch of a tree, and was
soon at the top of the stump, looking in
at the two cubs, which were about the
size of full grown rat dogs.
I was so excited that 1 jumped down
into the stump and grabbed the cubs.
They at first began to squeal then turned
on me for fight But they were small
enough to handle, and in a minute or so
I had their mouths tied so they could
not bite, and their feet fastened so that
they could not scratch.
I knew the old bear would be along
pretty soon and make it hot for me if
she found me in the nest, so I slung the
youngsters into my buckskin belt pre
paratory to getting out

bell shaped larger at the bottom than at
the top so large, in fact, that I could
not put my back against one side and
my feet and hands against the other and
crawl up as rabbits and other animals
climb up inside of hollow trees.
In no way could I get up a foot.
lnere were no sticks inside to nelp me
up, and I made up my mind I had to die
certain. About the time I came to this
conclusion I heard the old bear climbing
up the outside of the stump. With only
my hunting knife as a means of defense,
and m sucn close quarters, you may
possibly imagine the state of my feelings.
The old bear was not more than half
a minute, at the outside, climbing up the
stump, but it seemed like a month at

she didn't seem to suspect my presence
at all, as she deliberately turned round
and began slowly descending, tail fore
I felt as though my last hour had
come, and began seriously to think about

as to get out of my misery as quick as
possible. Suddenly an idea struck me.
and despair gave way to hope. I drew
out my hunting knife and stood on tip

whole crowd, who had been holding their

What did she do? Well, you should
have seen the performance; She didn't
stop to reflect a moment, but shot out
at the top of the stump like a bullet out
of a gun. A hair s breadth to a minute.
I held on till we struck the ground,
some thirty feet from the stump. Then
the bear went like lightning into the
brush, and was out of sight in half

Jeuny Llnd's Childhood.
; There was once a poor plain little girl,
dwelling in a little room in Stockholm,
the capitol of Sweden. She was a poor
little girl, indeed, then; she was lonely
and neglected, and would have been
very unhappy, deprived of the kindness
and care so necessary to a child, if it
had not been for a peculiar gift The
little ; girl had a fine voice, and in her
loneliness, in trouble or sorrow, she con
soled herself by singing. In fact she
sung to everything she did, at her work,
at her play, running or resting, she
always sang. The woman who had her
in care went out to work during the day,
and used to lock in the little girl, who
had nothing to enliven her solitude but
the company of a cat The little girl
played1" with her cat and sang. Once
she sat by the open window and stroked
her cat and sang, when a lady passed by.
She hears the voice, and looked and saw
e little singer. She asked the child
several questions, went away, and came
back several days later, followed by an
old music master whose name was Cre-
lius. He tried the little girl's musical
ear and voice and was astonished. He
took her to the manager of the Royal
Opera at Stockhelm, then a Count Pehu,
whose truly generous and kind heart
was concealed by a rough speech and a
morbid temper. Crehus introduced his
little pupil to the Count, and asked him
to engage her as eleve for the opera.
'You ask a foolish thing,, said the
Count gruffly, looking disdainfully down
on the poor little girl. "What shall we
do with that thing? She will never be
presentable. No we cannot take her.
Away .with her !' ; The music master
insisted almost indignantly, "Well,";
exclaimed he at last, "if you will not
take her, poor as I am, I will take her
myself, and have ; her educated for the
scene; then such another ear as she has
for music is not to be found in the
world." The Count relented. The lit
tle girl was at last admitted into the
school for eleves at the" opera, and with
some dimculty a simple gown of black
bombazine was procured for her.
