And Mrs. Parkhouse, whoso gentlo'soul
had naught of affinity to the five noisy boys

laid her cheek against tho little baby girl's
and silently gave thanks.

The next yeaiv-Dora's eleventh summer
an artist came out into the rural wilder
nesses sketching "studies" for his winter's
work and boarded for a few weeks at
Farmer Parkhouso's. Dora watched him
as Aladdin of old might have watched the
marvelous productions of the magician.
"I believe I could do that," said Dora,
with a voice that fluttered with her flut
tering breath. "Mr. Ryner, I have saved
6 pennies. Would you be good enough to
buy me a pencil like yours when you go
down to the village tomorrow?"
Air. Ryner looked around with a good
"Take one of mine, Cinderella," he said
and threw her a piece of paper and pencil,
and then he went on with his drawing.
Dora worked on In silence by his side, so
rapt and absorbed in her occupation that
she never noticed when he glanced over her
"Faith! not so bad," said he. "Is this the
first you have doner"
"Yes, sir, the very first."
Mr. Ryner said no more, but he gave
Dora a lesson every day after that until she
had learned to handle her pencil with no
mean degree of skill.
Dorothy Parkhouse had been an ugly In
fant, a plain, unattractive child, but It Is
not always possible to Jiulgo of tho flower
by the folded bud. She grew up rarely,
daintily pretty, with brown hair, blue gray
eyes and a face like a wild lose!
But Hezekiah Parkhouse did not notice
her any more than he noticed the cat in
the chimney corner, and he never was
more astonished in his life than when
George Elden, whose father owned the best
sawmill in tho county, asked him to use
his influence with his sister in his behalf.
Hezekiah went home and communicated
the great news to Dorothy as an eastern
emissary might be supposed to tell the
humblest slave of the harem that the sul
tun had cast a favorable eye upon her.
"Weill" cried Fanner Parkhouse as soon
as ho had sensed up the tidings, "Dorothy's
fortln's made now, sure enough."
"Not in that way," said Dorothy calmly.
1'I shall not marry Mr. Elden."
"You won't marry hlml" roared "Farmer
"But I say you shall if I have to drag you
to the altar myself I" he said.
Dora said no more, but the next morning
she was gone, and all the remaining trace of
her was a little penciled billet, pinned to the
sleeve of her mother's calico morning dress,
which bore these brief lines:
Mother, I'm going to try mr own luck in the
world. When I have made my fortune, I'll
come back after you. Keep up good courage
and doVt for a moment doubt that I will keep
"Well," ejaculated Mr. Byncr as Dora
presented herself before him and told her
simple tale, "what do you suppose you're
trninu to do. little one"
"I don't know, sir," said Dora simplyr
"Tho ravens fed Elijah."
His wife gave her some breakfast, and
then the kindly artist took her to a place
whom other irfrls were drawing pictures on

found herself the possessor of a sum of
money that exceeded her wildest hopes.
"Why," she cried, "Hezekiah don't gctas
much as this for his week's work on the
farm." , ,
"Possibly," said Mr. Ryner dryly. "You
see, my girl, you have talent, and Hezekiah
has only strength and muscle,"
It was in August whpn Dora Parkhouse
"ran away," and it was a bleak October
night when she once more approached tho
cluster of butternut trees that surrounded
the house. The light flickered rainuy irom
the kitchen window as she walked briskly
Suddenly she stopped. A figure stood
before her at the forks of the roads. Its
garments fluttered in the wind, and one
hand was pressed to its brow.
"Motherl" she cried uloud.
