A brother-in-law of Mr. Atkins had recently bought some shares in. the Golden Eldorado well, 'which was a gusher; the brother-in-law was now in clo- yer—where Mr. Atkins hoped soon to b|c also. Mr. Atkins purchased two Shenandoah certificates and - told the Major to come around again. And that was the way it went everywhere, or nearly everywhere. A few people were immune to the djsire for hidden riches, hut not many. The Major \vas amazed at his prowess, and really a little touched at the trust his tobacco customers had in him. His.week on the route in June : was-actually a pleasure. He sole Ivfjsh'erterlificates, six Inmdrcc doUarf**:worth. He, was proud, am Mrft Miigrirn \vas jubilant.

She though! e must be ap agent, selling some- ling, he was so spruce and well- roomed for such a lint, niois lorning. He look off his straw Inv nd bowed. "May 1 ask if you are Mrs. Cain- ron? "Yes," Miss Amy said, sure now lial lie was an agent. He prohal)l> .ad stopped first at Mrs. Kcrr', nd got (he names of the people ii lie neighborhood. "I am Dixon Thaycr, Mrs. Cam iron." "Oh." said Miss Amy. "Perhaps your daughter, Mis lose, may have told you some hirjE about me." "Oh," said Miss Amy. "Oh— :?," He wasn't an agent at al hen, but the young man who liar >een writing Ihose many letters, elegniphing and oven telephoning, ever since Rose came home from iVashinglon. But Miss Amy had never expected lo .see him in the flesh, and she thought It would lie unflattering to say how little Rose had told about him, so she said. 'Won't you come in, Mr. Thaycr?" "Thank you," he said, smiling. His smile was very nice, Miss Amy noticed, as she led him inlo the parlor, and'there seemed to be other nice things—his smooth brown hair, his brown eyes, the way he stood until she herself was seated. Miss Amy said that she supposed Mr. Thaycr wanted to see Rose? "She isn't here; she went downtown to the stores. But she should be back soon.*' "II you have no objections, I'll wait, Mrs. Cameron." ig niaa.vr-- "Noi lodnr, no. I mentioned thnl would come sometime, nnci 1 cized upon the cnrMicst opportu- ily. I admire Miss Rose very mich, Mrs. Cameron; I have hoped ov Ihe honor of meeting her )>ar- nts and family." * * • VriSS AMY was beginning lo like ~ the yonnp man and lo wish hat she had been wearing a better lonscdress this morrting, and thai .he pallor were slraighlcr—the I'oom really was quite a mess, cvorythiiig oul of place and the lusting only half done. "Well," she said, 'Tin happy to meet you. Mr. I'hayer. But Hose's father, Major Cameron, is oul o{ the city at present." 'Oh, loo bad," Mr. Thaycr's nice brown eyes \vcrc disappointed. "I had especially wanted lo lalk with Major Cnmcrnn—lo beg his consent lo luy asking Miss Hose to marry me." "Marry—" Miss Amy waj so surprised she nearly fell oft her chair. "Has Hose said—" "i am nnly hoping, Mrs. Cameron. I fell that before 1 proposed lo Miss Rose, 1 should have your approval and Major Cameron's. 1 ' "I sec." said Miss Amy, now thoroughly mystified. After a moment, she said: "Ho\v—how old arc you?" "I'm Uvcnly-six. I'm a Inu-ycr, .iracticing mostly in the District of Columbia, but living in Stafford County, Virginia." Feeling that, in view of llic Maior's absence, some roulinc i»f in- lerrogation must be incumbent upon Rose's olhci- parent. Miss Amy tried lo Ihink of something— anything—lo say. "Is your father lawyer, too, Mr. Thaycr?' 1 "My father is dead. He died before f was born, and my mother "Did Rose know you v:ere com-' when I was ten." •'Oh!" Miss Amy's heart quickened with pity. He was an orphan. They talked for a long time afler lhat. and then ho said: "You were dusting when 1 arrived. Why don't wo go ori with that? Have you another cloth? I'll help." So Miss Amy got him a dust-cloth and they finished up the parlor and set everything straight. Miss Amy wondered where Hose was. (T\: B« CouiiiMicil) ,'X e !y t!
