Mary-Frances knocked on tne door 'and opened It "Cissy, telephone—" and Cecily was In the hall jefofe Mary-Frances bad time to say, "It's Marta. I told her you had a headache, but—" Cecily ran on down the stair* loping. Ann knew, to hear "something." Those aching hopes for Indefinite somethings, which one never beard, or which, bearing, hurt so unbearably, She crossed the room and rolled the blinds up from tho open windows to let in the gentle gray twilight Where, she wondered, were Phil and Letty at he precise moment; and what were they doing? Since that night in May, Phil and Letty In Ann's thoughts had been as concurrent as thunder and lightning, and In consequence she was growing more and more deft with slamming shut the doors of her mind and locking them securely against the onslaughts of a storm. This evening she closed them more readily than usual by merely saying, "Poor Cissy," and she locked them with a smug, 'Silly!" and went to meet Cecily at the top of the stairs. "Come Into the bathroom, honey, and .wash your face. It will make yon reel better." •^He dldnjt go to Gretchen's party iftteralU'* (Jttlly said. - as, she aK. owedV Ann, to "lead her into tbJ bathroom. "1 am a sight!" she declared, and put a still more miserable expression on the face in the mirror while Ann filled the wash basin with water and stole a pinch of pink from Rosalie's bath-salt jar. "It made all the difference," said Cecily, "whether I didn't wish him to go—be oafi to K> then; Of whether he didn't wish to go," "Men ar«,111* that," And laid, and sheeted i fte* cloth out ot the water, and tried to wash Cecily's feoe lot her. "Do.nl. Km dab eo. I'll do it" She did it, thoroughly, splashing and dipping her head to the water like a'boy. "1 suppose,he left town on Friday, 11 sue ftkid, and took the towel Anftianded.to her.

Don't— 1 don't want it, Ann." "Ot course you want it. What will, you say If Grand or Rosalie asks- you what you've been crying about?" I "For once—Just onco In my life I'll give myself the dear delight of telling them it • Is none Of their business.*' , "Cecily! I must say I You won't make yourself any happier, dear, by. being mean and making other people unhappy.", "My wof d; Ann, you do preach, don't you?" "I'm sorry. It IS contagious, maybe. Did you have an overdose of it at supper this evening?" "I didn't go down. 'Mary-Frances set it out for them." "I'm hungry," Ann said. "Let's go down and find something." "I couldn't eat I couldn't think ot eating. I really have a bad headache." "Come watch me eat, then." Ann put an arm around Ceci-ly's waist and pulled. "I wish," Cecily said, as they went down the stairs together, "that you'd tell me bow, you manage that serenity of youra. .I'd give almost anything for'.some of It I'm not sure that It is genuine; but there is something so sort • of—clean about It." They -w^'re In the lower hall before Ann !answered: "I'm afraid you'll think I'm preachy ' again, honey, but I've thought a lot lately. I^-well^rv*.Jiad lota ot,Uffie,alone to think." "And one thln'g'lithought sort of seems to flt In with what you said about serenity being clean. I don't know, but I think that sorrow is something that should be put away and left alone; that It is something that shouldn't be taken out and fingered and soiled." "Angel Annl" Cecily said with affection and ait amtued tolerance* because, after all, what did AJin-» what could Ann know abdtif real sorrow Y Ann, who confused sorrow with her belt undies—who thought of it ae something dainty to be wrapped tn tissue paper and put away in a drawer with sachet pow< der.

I love it ot course; and 1 wouldn't change a thing about you for the world, if I were the only one, but it would give people who didn't know the depths of you and alt a kind ot false impression ot you.

(To Be Continued) Days of Yore •'' ; From the flies of Washington Telegraph I;/*'' January 13,1MT .VAILS AGAIN—Our eastern .due Sunday night, did not ar- until Monday night—nearly hours behind the time. Cmt we have heard of is of the delay. Under no itnbnatnrtion. within our recollec- have we heard so many com- of the irregularity of the , as we have since Cave Johnson s;,... officiated as Postmaster General. |' Jleiular mails under bis administra- have become obsolete; there is thing as a regular mail. 35fee time was. when we received « dates from New Orleans in seven 'gM day*. Now we receive the news from New Orleans by the of New York. Our latest dates from the former place by mail, are upto the 22ult, while we have dates from the latter to the 26th. The fact that the postmaster at New Orleans sends our mails by the way of Memphis, is the cause of this delay. There is certainly no necessity of sending them that route, as it is some three hundred miles out of the way, and causes a detention of from four to five days, when they necessarily pass the office at the mouth of the White rive, and might reach this point nearly, if not as quickly as they reach Memphis. There is no reason why we should not receive our southern mail via the mouth of the White river as formerly. There is however, no benefit to result fro mcomplaints. Mr. Polk has seen proper to place at the head of this important department, a person unqualified to discharge its duties, and we must bear with patience the many inconveniences under which we labor until there is a change in the administration. We have no hope, that under the present incumbent, tHIS,CURIOUS WORLD • JESUS there will be any change for the better. Nature never intended Cave Johnson for the position he now fills, and no power on earth could fit him for the station. CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION — The returns have nt yet all been received. Four counties, Arkansas, Scott; Pike and Fulton, are yet to be heard from. Paschal has so far as heard from, received 731 votes, Newton 1725, Rust 1638, Noland 850 and Haralson 134. This showg a majority of six votes for Paschal over Newton, to which adding his majority in Pike county, which we understand is 8 votes, gives him.a. clear majority of 14 votes over Newton. The result finally will depend very much upon Scott county. If there has been an election there Paschal is undoubtedly elected; if not, and Arkansas has done her duty. Newton may still have a showing. We much confess however, that in our estimation, Paschal's chance is rather the best. It must be gratifying to the whigs to know, that if they are defeated they have de- leated themselves. With one candidate In the field their succes would have been certain. We know that there Is a large majority against us, but still we could have elected a whig had but one whig been run.
