It was nothing more nor loss than
a yellow butterfly that brought Mr.
Alston to the Rooky Glen. He was
an entomologist. lie was also
geologist; and if there were any
other ologies into which he had not
dipped, at Some period or other of
his career, it was because they were
not discovered at thut period of the
world’s history. % *
“It’s a pity,” said Mrs. Hobbs,
his housekeeper, “that such a nice
gentleman as Mr, Alston shouldn’t
marry and settle down like other
folks. T did have some hopes when
M iss Blim, his cousin twice removed
came here to make a visit with Miss
osey Ames, the young lady from
the city as had suoh lovelv blue eyes.
But Mr. Alston didn't seem to take
much stock in tier, and seemed
dreadful relieved like when she went
away. Then there was Miss Pris
cilla Jones, the school-ma'am.
Says I to myself, when I lieerd she\l
took the doestriok school, here’s a
maid for the master. But she didn't
suit Ins idees no Way. Said she was
a masculine woman. Some folks is
hard to please anyhow.”
A.nd while Mrs. Hobbs was pre
serving blackberries up at the house,
and mingling her sorrows with the
syrup and her lamentations with the
fruit, Mi;. Alston, with' his lunch
neatly packod up in a tin box, and a
pocket flask of sherry in his coat-
front, was following up a particular
ly brilliant and rare specimen of
gold-wingod butterfly, which, ac
cording to the best of his belief, had
not yet been represented in his col
lection, across inarch aud fen, down
deep ravines and up brier-clothed
He caught it at lust* in his swift-
descending and wily net, chloro
formed it on the spot, and deposited
it in liis case with'the same sense of
triumph which Columbus may have
experienced when he first sighted the
shores of America. He hud lost hi*

crushed in scrambling up the face of
i>a m’ost impracticable rock; his gar

with hair to match, was sitting oif
