"Io you belong, may I ask. to the
genus ape, bird or plxleT" said Hrlan
Desmond, as he stood looking up Into the
branches of the cherry tree.
It was 7 o'clock In the morning, a
creditable hour for him to be abroad,
perambulating the garden. The birds
were shouting their morning paeans to

sweetness. The dew lay fresh and heavy
upon the grass under his feet, the flow

mond stared up Into tho cherry tree,
where, among the crimson drops of ruddy
fruit, was perched a small, elf-IIke crea

of Indistinct formation, and preternatur

gravely into his.

her, noting that on nearer Inspection

"I don't know whether you llko cherry

tively. "On the cherries to begin with;

cried triumphantly. "Did you like It;

Ho It was not an Irrelevant catechism,
but a trap to catch him, after all. He
owned with confusion that he had not
tasted any of the cherry tart In ques

of It so much. Why didn't you eat it?"
"I really don't know."
"It must certainly be as I said to

reflectively with those grave Infantine
blue eyes; "It must be because you are
"As you are on the subject of age,
perhaps you will kindly favor me with

"Certainly. I am sixteen."
"Blxteeu!" he cried in amazement.
"Why, I thought you were only teu."
Then you were very stupid to think
eo," she replied, lu a perfectly tran
He looked at her attentively. He be
gnu to perceive that she was no child,
but a lovely girl of the most fairy-like
type, a flower bud Just emerging Into
womanhood. Her gold crowned head,
her pure dellcate-hued profile turned
slightly from him, the transparent taper
fingers that played with a cluster of
crimson cherries all were those of a
-woman, and not of a child. He bad
been stupid, no doubt!
And then he fell to wondering what
on earth he should do, should tills
Htrange, elMlke, woman-child ever be left
upon Ills hands. Brian began to think
that ho had undertaken rather moro than
ho bargained for.
"I nm going to get down now, please."
"Pray allow me to assist you?" said
Brian In his beat society uianuer.
Tho nearest approach to n laugh that
Kitten ever Indulged In fluttered softly
from her rosy lips. In less time than It
takes to describe sho had swung herself
lightly on to the dewy grass, and stood
looking up at him with grave blue eyes
In which there lurked now a suspicion of

swift nor so graceful ns yours. Miss Kay
bourne;" nevertheless he accomplished It,
although In a blundering fashion.
They wandered along the garden paths
together. The dew brushed against their
garments, the flower dust from the gold
en hearts of the marigolds, and the nas
turtiums was shaken by their passing
footsteps. The flickering sunlight came
shaft-llko down through the over-nrching
boughs abovo their head.
The professor standing between the
muslin draperies of the open breakfast
room window, watched them as they
came slowly along. Desmond s tall head
stooped toward his companion, his hand
some red bronte face burnt by the sun
of foreign lands, wns bent with friendly
kindness toward tho upturned flower
llko face by his side; his eyes that were
somewhat grave with the shadow of a
past grief, nnd somewhat tender, too,
with the reflex of a kindly nature, were
fixed with a pleased admiration upon the
girl's youth and beauty.
Kitten tripped lightly by his side, shy
ness was not In her: she chattered freely
about the cows, and tho dogs, and her
pet starling In his cage, saying anything
that came into her head; sometimes witn
tho playful foolishness of a child, some
times with that gleam of world-wise
shrewdness which crossed her more friv
olous moods with strango unexpected
The naturalist looked at them both as
they came nearer. Ills child was fair
and sweet and lovely. Brian was stilt

man and a gentleman. Through the old
man's mind there darted a sudden

himself, "That would be better for her."
and a smile softened his eyes as the
thought grew and grew upon him more

drew near the house.

"No. I don't dislike you," she answer

I think I like you better than I do
"And who, pray. Is Boy Orantley?"
"Well, he's a. boy. I have known

"And yet you like me as well? Is not
that rather ungrateful, Miss Kitten, to

angry If he heard you."

know, It Is tiresome."
"And how are you prepared to regard

He looked at her playfully, the grare
blue eyes met his, then dropped swiftly
a slow flush mounted to her brow.
Something In tho electric glance of his
eyes caused her to tremble before him
with a sweet shyness that was something
new to her. And Brian Desmond saw
that he had awakened the woman in
tho child's heart.
All that day he wandered with her
about the woods -and the fields, with
stated Intervals, of course of serious
conrersatlon with her father. Ho picked
wild flowers for her, dog-roses and
honeysuckles from the hedges, long trails
of brlony to wind round her hat, or
meadowsweet and waring rushes from
the tangled fringe of tho stream that ran
lazily through the meadows below the
Kitten soon recovered herself, and
chattered freely to him of her simple life
and Its pleasures. Now and then she
stole a side glance up at him, and said
to herself: "He Is far better than Boy,
though he Is so old."
And Itoy was away; he was paying a
visit to bis uncle. There was no sun
burnt, shock-headed boy to come clam
bering over the fence to disturb her
tete-a-tetes with her new friend.
"I am glad he Is away," said Kitten
to herself, with the Ingratitude of her
sex. "Itoy Is not amusing like Mr. Des

looks foolish ami says silly things, and

Two three day pnssed away with
lightning quickness; on the fourth Brian
was to go. Kitten counted the' lessen

"Only one day moro',' she said to her
self when It came to the last. "One

him of things I don't understand. Then
one more afternoon together lu the woods
and the fluids, then the evening and the
dinner hour, and tho stroll In the moon

In the early morning he will go." Hue
reckoned up the precious moments as a
miser count his gold, aud after all the
day was a failure, as so muuy "last
days" ore apt to bo to which we huye
looked forward with a trembling eager
ness. It rained all the morning. Mr. Des
mond remained closeted In the profes
sor's stud for all the long hours between
breakfast and lunch. Kitten was told by
her father that she might "run nwny,"
Sho pouted n llttlo bit, and resented for
the first tlmo being treated llko a child.
After a long tlmo aha hoard tho study

"Klttenl Kitten! Whcro are you?"
called a voice outside. A curious sense
of happy shyness kept hor silent. She
crouched closor under tho shelter of tho
old faded morono curtnlus und wns still,
though her heart wns beating strangely.
She henrd him go out Into tho porch,
then come In ngnln and go to the kitchen
door. Ketlnh would surely tell him where
sho was. The step enmo back quickly,
the handle of the door turned.
"Kitten, nro you hero?"
Sho stooped her yellow bend low over
her book, there wns a reason why sho
did not want to look up or to answer.
But ho saw her In her corner, n llttlo
mite nil In white, with n lKMit, sunny
head ngnlust a frnmowork of faded red.
"Kittle witch! where have you hidden
yourself? Why did you not answer?
Why, Kitten, Kitten, whnt Is the mat

Sho tried to turn away her tenr-ladeu
eyes nnd to force her lips Into n smile,
but tho heavy drops tumbled over on to
her stns.ll bunds, aud tho rosy lips could
"It Is your Inst dny," sho sntd plte
ously; "and and It Is half gone al
ready." He snt down bosldo her on tho ground
and took tho small frnll hnuds In his
own. It went throng.! his mind to ask
himself who, for many a long year, had
shed tears for him, because he was go
ing away, A great tenderness tilled his
heart; It was not love. It wns nothing
llko love even, It was only such a pity
as might All the heart of n strong man
toward n child who Is hurt. He wanted
to be kind to her, to console her, to do
her good, to wipe away those tears which
sorrow for him had conjured up, to coax
those trembling rosebud lips Into n smile.
"Poor llttlo child." ho said to himself;
"what can I say or do to comfort her?
Kitten, would you llko to lire with mo
always?" he asked of her suddenly, "to
be never parted from me?"
Sho looked up nt him swiftly, a great
gtish of Joy flashed over her face, a
smile of hcarcn-horu happiness parted
"To live with you!" she repeated won
derlngly. Then her face dropped Into
her hands, n crimson flush rushed sud
denly over her whole face nnd throat and
the small white fingers flew up to hide
the child eyes where the woman's lovo
had been quickened Into sudden life.
He saw then what he had dona and
what she fancied he had meant. He
rose quickly and looked out of the win
dow. "It would bo nice, wouldn't It. little
woman? You and I would become great
friends, but, of course, It Is nonsense,
for you havo your father;" he could not
tell her how that fathrr was likely to
die and leave her to his care, which was
what had been In his mind when he had
talked of her living with him.
A silence then as ho still turned
away hi face, she said gently: "Non

him with her linger slipped Into the
page of her book. There wero no tears
now In her grave, sweet eyes, nor any
burning blushes on her cheeks, she was
much as usual, only, perhaps, a little
paler. Already the child was learning
the woman's lesson, to hide the wounds
of her heart from tho eyes of the msn
who makes her suffer.
"But I am coming back again to see
you very soon. Kitten; we shall hare
many moro good hour together In the
garden ami tho fields."
"Yes, that will be nice."
"Now run nnd get your hat; see, tho
