and open squares for windows. Al

Alleyne was roused, however, from
his pleasant revery by the sound of
voices, and two people emerged from
the forest some little way to his right
and moved across the field In the di
rection of the bridge. The one was a
man with yellow flowing lwtrd and
very long hair of the same tint droop
ing over his shoulders. By his side
walked a woman, tall and slight and
dark, with lithe graceful figure and
clear-cut, composed features. Her Jet-
golden hair, his fierce blue eyes, and
his large, well-marked features, he
was the most comely man whom Al
It yno had ever seen; and yet there was
something so sinister and so fell In his
expression that child or beast might
well have shrunk from him. Ills brows
were drawn, his check flushed, and
there was a mad sparkle in his eyes
which spoke of a wild, untamable

weman still to his side, though every

light pink coif, her h'-ati poised proudly
upon her neck, and her step long and
si ringy, like that of some wild tireless
woodland creature. AUeyne stood in
the shadow of an oak staring at ln-r
with parted lips, for this woman
seemed to him to be the most beauti
ful and graceful creature that mind
could conceive of. Such had he imag
ined the angels, but here there was
something human, which sent a tingle

Then they paused, and stood fur a
few minutes face to face, talking
earnestly. Alleyne had read and
heard of love arid of lovers. Such were
these, doubtless this) golden-bearded
loan and the fair damsel with the cold
proud face. Why else should they
wander together in the woods, or be so
lost in talk by rustic streams? And
yet as he watched, uncertain whether
to advance from the cover or to choose
some other path to the house, he soon
came to doubt the truth of his con
jecture. Th" man stood, tall and
square, blocking the entrance to the
bridge, and throwing out his hands as
he spoke in a wild, eager fashion,
while the deep tones of his stormy
voice rose at times into accents of
menace and of anger. She stood fear
lessly in front of him. but twice she
threw a swift questioning glance over
her shoulder, as of one who is in
search of aid. So moved was the
young clerk by these mute appeals,
that be came forth from the trees and
crossed the- meadow, uncertain what to
do, and yet loath to hold back from
one who might need his aid. So intent
were they upon each other that neither
took note of his approach; until, when
he was close upon them, the man threw
his arm roughly round the damsel's
waist and drew her toward him, she
Htiainirig her lithe Hupple figure away
and striking fiercely at him. The
maid, however, had but little chance
against her assailant, who, laughing
loudly, caught her wrist in one hand
while he drew her toward him with the
"The best rose has ever the longest
thorns," said he. "Quiet, little one, or
you may do yourself a hurt! Must pay
Saxon toll on Saxon land, my proud
Maude, for all your airs and graces."
"You boor!" she hissed. "You base,
underbred clod! Is this your care and
your hospitality I would rather wed
a branded serf from my father's fields.

Heaven has sent you. Make him loose

pray you to stand by rne and to make
this knave loose me.
"Stand by you I will, and that
blithely," said AUeyne. "Surely, Mir,
you chould take shame to hold the
damsel against her will."
The man turned a face upon him
which was lion-like In Its strength and
in Its wrath. With his tangle or
there is the more reason that your
manners should be gentle too. I arn
well persuaded that you did but jest
with this lady, and that you will now
permit her to leave your land either
alone or with me as a guide, if she
should need one, through the wood.
As to birth, it does not become me to
boast, and there is sooth in what you
say as to the unworthiness of clerks,
but it is none the less true that 1 am
as well born as you."
"Dog!" cried the furious Socman,
"there is no man in the south who can
sa as much.
"Yet can I," said Alleyne, smiling;
' for indeed I also arn the son of Kdric
the Socman, of the pure blood of iod
frey the thane, by the only daughter of
Aluric of Urockenhurst. Surely, dear
brother," he continued, holding out his
hand, "you have a warmer greeting
than this for me. There are but two
boughs left upon this old Saxon trunk."
His elder brother dashed his hand
aside with an oath, while an expression
of malignant hatred passed over hi.s
passion-drawn features. "You are the
young cub of Beaulieu, then?" said he.
"I might have known it by the sleek
fice and slavish manner, too monk
ridden and craven In spirit to answer

Knave, my dogs shall In- set upon
you: but meanwhile, stand out of my
path, and stop me at your peril!"
As he spoke he rushed forward, and,
throwing the lad to one side, caught
the woman's wrist. Alleyne, however,
as active as a young deer-hound,
pprang to her aid and seized her by
the other arm, raising his Iron-shod
staff as he did so.

flash in his eyes which promised that
the blow would follow quick at the
heels of the word. For a moment the
blood of the long line of hot-headed
thanes was too strong for the soft
whisperings of the doctrine of meek
ness and mercy. He was conscious of
a fierce wild thrill through his nerves
and a throb of mad gladness at his
heart, as bis real human self burst for
an Instant the bonds of custom and of
teaching which had held it so long.

The Story of Mary.
Cliarlea B. Barnes, In the New York
Mary had a little lamb;
One clay it got the croup;
She sold It to a packing house
It's now canned ox-tall soup.
Mary hud to have a pet:
She bought a cunning cow,
Which died of splitting headaches soon;
It's country sausage now.
Mary wept and wept and wept.
And then a plggbr got;
The plgglo died of tummy ac-ho
It's boned hum, like as not.
Mary saw the packers make
A fort uric- from her pets,
But she could hardly clear enough
On them to pay her debts.
Marv bought an ailing sheep
She knew it was a sin
And when It died she promptly culled
An undertaker In.
This precious pair embalmed the sheep
And sold It all for rash.
