A PERILOUS WOOING.
From the time thut AbIhur was quite
grown tip there wits no lonffur uiiy peace
or quiet lit Uiwuhy. In fact, ull the
ImiidsiiniMt young fellows in the village
did nothing but fifjlit "'id quarrel night
aftur nifrlit, und it wild ulwuya worm on
Saturday nighta. Asking's lather, old
Canute Husaby, never went to bed on
those nighta without keeping on at leant
bin bmtlier breecbeB and laying a good
stout birch stick on the lied beside him.
"If 1 have such a pretty daughter," said
old Cunnte, "I must know how to take
care of her."
Tbor Nesset was only the son of a poor
cottager, and yet folks mud that it was
he who went of taiust to visit the farm
er's daughter at Hnsaby. Of course, old
Canute was not pleased to hour this. He
said it was not true; that, at any late, he
had never seen him there. Still they
smiled, and whispered to each other that
If he only hud thoroughly searched the
hayloft, whither Ashing had many an
errand, ho would have found Thor there.
Spring came, and Ashing went up the
mountain with the cattle. And now,
whon the heat of the day huug over the
valley, the rocks rose cool und clear
through the sun's misty rayn, the cow
bells tinkled, the shepherd's dog barked,
Aslung sang her "jodel" songs and blew
the cow horn, all the young men felt
their hearts grow sore and heavy as they
guzed upon her bounty. And on the first
Saturday evening one after the other
thoy crept up the hill. But they cume
down again quicker than they had gone
np, for at the top stood a limn who kept
guard, receiving each one who came np
with such a warm reception that he all
his life long remembered the words that
accompanied the action, "Come up here
again and there will be still more in store
All the young fellows could arrive bnt
at one conclusion, that there was only
one man in the whole parish who had
such fists, and that man was Thor Nes
set. All the rich farmers' daughters
thought It wus too bad that this cot
tager's son should stand highest in As
hing Husaby's fuvor.
Old Cumitc thought the same when he
heard about it all, and said thut if there
were no one else who could check him
he would do it himself. Now, Canute
was certainly getting on in years; still,
although he was post sixty, he often en
joyed a good wrestling mutch with his
eldest son whenever time indoors fell
heavy on his hands.
There was but one path np to the
mountain belonging to Husuby, and it
went straight through the farm gnrden.
Next Saturday evening, us Thor wus on
his way to the monntniu, creeping cure
fully across the yard, hurrying as soon
as he wns well post the farm buildings,
a mun suddenly rushed at him.
"Wbut do you want with me?' asked
Thor, and hit him such a blow in the
face thut sparks danced before his eyes.
"Von will soon learn that," suid some
one else behind him, and gave him a
great blow in the buck of hia neck.
That was Aslang's brother.
"And here's the hired man," said Old
Canute, and uttackod him also.
The greuter the danger the greater
was Thor's strength. He was supple as
a willow, and hit out right manfully; he
dived and he ducked; whenever a blow
fell it missed him, and when none ex
peoted it he would deal a good one. He
stooped down, he sprang on one side,
bnt for all that he got a terrible thrash
ing. Old Canute said afterward that
"he had novor fought with a braver fel
low." They kept it up till blood began
to flow, then Canute cried out, "Stop!"
Then he added in a croaking tone, "If
you can get up here next Saturday, in
spite of Cunnte Husuby and his men, the
the girl shall be yours!"
Thor drugged himself home as best he
could, and when he reached the cottage
went Btruight to bod. There was a greut
deal of talk about the fight up on Hns
aby hill, but every one said, "Why did
he go there?" Only one person did not
say so, and thut was Alsang. She hud
been expecting Thor thut Saturday
evening, but when she heard what had
happened between him and her father,
she sat down and cried bitterly, and
said tu herself, "If I may not have Thor
1 shall never have a happy day again in
Thor staid in his bed all Sunday and
when Mouduy came he felt he must
stay on where he. was. Tuesday came
and it was a lovely day. It had rained
In the night; the hills looked so fresh
and green, the window was open, sweet
odors were wafted in, the cowbells were
tinkling on the mountain, and far up
above some one -was "jodling." Truly,
If it hud not been for his mother, who
was sitting in the room, he could have
cried. Wednesday came and still he
staid In bed; on Thursday, though, he
hcirin to think about the possibility of
being well again by Saturday, and Fri
day found him on his legs ugain. Then he
thoughtof what Aslang's father had said,
"If yon can get up to her next Saturduy
without being stopped by Canute and
his men the girl shall be yours." Over
and over aguin he looked up at Husuby
farm. "I shall never see another Christ
mas," thought Thor.
As before mentioned, there wad but
one path up to Husuby hill; but surely
uuy strong, uble fellow must be uble to
got to it, even though the direct way
were burred to him. For instance, if he
were to row round the point yonder and
fasten his boat at the one side, it might
be possible to climb up there, although
it was so very steep that the gouts had
great difficulty in climbing it, and they
are not UBuully afraid of mountain work.
Sutnrduy came, and Thor went out
early in the morning. The day was
most beautiful; the sun shone so bright
ly that the very bushes seemed alive.
Up on the mountain many voices were
"jodling," and there wus much blowing
of horns. When evening came he wus
Bitting at his cottage door watching the
steaming mist rise up on the hills. He
looked upward all was quiet; he looked
over towurd Husaby funn and then he
jumped into his boat and rowed away
round the point.
Aslang sat before the hut; her day's
work was done; she was thinking Thor
would not come that evening, and that
therefore many others might come in
stead, so she uufuHteued the dog, and,
withoutsuying anything, wulked farther
on. She sat down, so that she could Bee
across the valley, but the mist was rising
there, and prevented her looking down.
Then she choBe another place, andith
out thinking more about it, sat down so
that she looked toward the side where
lay the fjord. It seemed to bring peace
to her soul when she could gaze far away
across the water.
As she sat there the f uncy struck her
that she was inclined to sing, so she
chose a song with "long drawn notes,"
and fur and wide it Bounded through
the mountains. She liked to hear her
self sing, so she began over again when
the first verse was ended. But when she
had sung the second, it seemed to her as
though some one answered from far
down below. "Dear me, what can that
beV thought Aslung. She stepped for
ward to the edge and twined her arms
around a slender birch which hung
trembling over the precipice, and looked
dowu. But she could see nothing; the
fjord lay there culm and at rest; not a
single bird skimmed the water. So
Aslung sat herself down again, and
again she began to eing. Once more
cume the answering voice in the same
tones and nearer than the first time.
"That sound was no echo, whatever it
may be." Aslung jumped to her feet
and ugain leaned over the cliff. And
there down below, at the foot of the
rocky wall, she saw a boat fastened. It
looked like a tiny nutshell, for it wus
very far down. She looked again uud
euw a fur cap, and under it the figure of
a man, climbing up the steep and barren
"Who' can it hot' Aslung usked herself;
and letting go the birch she stepped back.
She dared not answer her own question,
but well she knew who it wus. She flung
herself down on the greenswurd, seizing
the grass with both hands, as though it
were she who dared not loose her hold
for fear of falling. But the grass came
up by the roots; she screamed aloud and
dug her hands deeper and deeper into
the soil. She prayed to God to help him;
but then it struck her thut this feat of
Thor's would be called "tempting Provi
dence," and therefore he oould not ex
pect help from above.
"Only just this oncel" she prayed.
"Hear my prayer just this one time, and
help hiin!" Then she threw her arms
round the dog, as though it were Thor
whom she wus clasping, uud rolled her
self on the grass beside it.
The time seemed to her quite endless.
Suddenly the dog began to bark. "Bow
wowl" said he to Aslang, and jumped
upon her. And again, "Wow, wowl"
then over the edge of the cliff a coarse,
round cap came to view, and Thor was
in her armsl
He lay there a whole minute, and
neither of them was capable of ottering
a syllable. And when they did begin to
talk there was neither sense nor reason
in anything they said,
But when old Canute Husaby heard of
it he uttered a remark which had both
sense and reason. Bringing his fiat down
on the table with a tremendous crash,
"the lad deserves her," he cried, "the
girl shall be his!" Translated from the

Bananas ought never to be peeled en
tirely and the skinned fruit taken in the
fingers. This is not nice at all. It is
admissible to peel the fruit gradually,
eating it as it is peeled; it is better, in
this case, to nearly sever the mouthful
with the fruit knife before attempting
the bite, as it is never elegant to leave
the print of the teeth in any article of
food. Very dainty folk, however, object
even to this way of eating the fruit, as
after one or two mouthfnls the skin
hangs over the band in an undesirable
way. Such prefer to cut the banana
through longitudinally, skin and all,

the former, take out small portions at a
