Will Hammond stood at one end
of tho long snowy pine table, looking
very handsome and very muoli in
earnest as he watohed tho saucy
graceful way Gussie Greendalo tossed
her head, aud the bright color came
warming her pretty oheeks.
It mnde a pleasunt picture, the
big kitchen in the Greemlale furm-
liuuse, with its diesser full or shin
ing tins, its big, deep seated windows
draped with spotless dimity; its doz
en old fashions ruBh-bottomed chairs,
and one great big cozily-oushion
rocker beside the cooking stove; with
its 6nowy floor, with here and there
strips of bright rag carpet, its long
white pine side table that was load
ed down cold frosty morning with
toothsome dainties in a fair way of
preparation for table.
And prettiest of all was Gussie
Greendale, herself, with her bright
brown and white calico dress so
neatly covered by a big bib apron,
her sleeves rolled up to her pink,
dimpled elbows, showing small ex
quisitely moulded arms; witli her
pretty uroh face, of e’eir bru
nette complexion; her well-poised
head with its shining, dusky hair ar
ranged neatly and becomingly; with
her saucy, roguish eyes, whose meri-
ment hid the great depth of tender
passion, of which she was so capable.
Will Hammond looked at her fully a
minute, all his heart in his eyes,
while Gussie went complacently on
with the work in hand, which, at
that eBpecial minute, consisted of
spreading delicious looking lemon
custard on a layer of jelly cake.
A minute, two, three; passed, and
the young man waited, and the girl
spread custard with her dainty brown
hand as though life itself was depen
Then ho spoke.
Will you answer me, Gussie? yes
And Gussie raised her roguish, co
quettish eyes, with a demureness
that he might have known waB dan
Really, I don’t know which it is.
There, now, Will are you satisfied?
Satisfied! And he thought, as he
bit his mustache in sheer vexation,
that it took some magic skill he
feared he never possessed to woo this
outrageong tittle enchanting flirt.

lips pouting so near him and he not.

that hauty little head so near his,
and he not daring to cradle it on Mb
Doubtless my content is supreme,
he said bitterly. Gussie did it ever
seem to you that perhaps I mean
what I say?. Sometimes I have imag.

it, then at him.
Very well, Will since you insist
upon yes or no —uol

other young ladies the same question

cake-making, who doubtless wit) be
very glad of a chauce to say yes.
Isn’t this kitchen awful hot?
Certainly Gtttsie’s oheeks were re
markably red, but whether or not it
was the heat of the kitchen, Willard
Ilmnmand did not inquire—lie Imd
Aud Gussie’s lingers flew luster
tliun usual, and the puutry doors
slummed sumowhat, and one entire
pan of cookies were burned to small
ovul cinders while Gussie stood med

Think you must be going, eli? It’s
rather sudden, isn’t it Mr. Ham

tea biscuit and asked the question at
the same time, and Gussie gave a lit

shut her eyes to the fact that never
again would life be as calm aud rosy-

Up ui Ins pan is not necessary either
to vindicate himself or punish trick
ery. The case is difterei.t»Yiow from
what it was in 1874. Toon the mill
of the people had been tidied with,
and trickery had been resorted to in
the nontiuutio . ot a candidate- The
convention had not art.-d fairly with
tile people, and we did not censure
Felton for attempting to justify him
self and rebuke tho convention, In
that election Felton was successful
as an independent candidate by only
about eighty votes. In the election
of 1870 he was again an independent
candidate and was elected over the
regular Democratic nominee by
twenty-five hundred majority. 'Plus
was enough to have satisfied Felton
that the peo/)lo were determined to
resist “rings” and oppose trickery iu
Now for Felton, in advanon of any
action or convention of the people,
to declare him fell' an independent
candidate whether they want him or
not, is both presumptuous and dicta
torial. He is a good man, it is true,
and wo have justified him heretofore,
but in the election next fall, we hope
the organized Democracy of the Sev

polls so severely that lie will never
again attempt to dictate terms and
disorganize the only responsible and
respectable political orgauiz tion in
Tho people of the Seventh District
have sufficiently shown their disap

Until this morning, this Thursday
morning, with a damp, raw east wind,
a cloudod, lowering sky when Wil

who had been tne very snnshine of

now with all the bustle and excite

when his trunk stood strapped in the

made her fe.l us if there had been a
funeral in the house, now knowing it
was the last time she would everfee

opinion is, as I repeatedly said, this

turned to Field with the remark,
“Your troops are very complimenta
ry to mo.” “How so?” asked Field.
“Why, they suv I look like a rebel.”
“Do you take thatfor aoompliment?”
