"Enrloryl" cried Mrs. Stebbins In her 'ligli nasal voice, nnd tho clatter of npooiis in tho noxt room stopped suddenly, nfter which slight assurance that fiho was heard Mrs. Stebbins commanded, between tho energetic splashes of her clinru: "I want you to como right out hero tm pnt up the men's dinner an ttiko it dowu to "em. They ain't goin to take tho tlmo to come homo, -'cause fnrlier's foot is ochiu this mornlu, an ho wants to git iu nil tho hay nfore the storm. Como along now I Them spoons is goiu to keep." Thcro was no answer this time either, but tbo door was pushed farther open, and H girl caiuo silently into the kitchen. Ilor fingers were black, ns if she had heon clc;»uiug very dirty silver, and eho walked over to tho sink, poured some water into n rin basin and began to wash them with a deliberate slowness whioh umdo her mother's thin lips tighten niul tho churn fairly hop about tho floor with the vigor of her strokes, i Mrs. Stohbins could not tolerate slowness. Sho could not understand how it -was-possible for- a--person--to -be-«itber- slow or silent, and nothing made her so nugry as tho oxhibitiou of oithor char' nctcristic in her oiily daughter--a. fact which I am sorry iii bay Eudora discov-; orcd and inude use of at a very early ago. It was the only way in which she could, as nho expressed it, "gotsqnare" with her ovorbonriug mother,, and she hud cultivated it till tho slight natural tendencies in thoso directions hod be-i come actual habits. -. ;-! As sho stood there now, seeming td wash and dry each separate-finger by itsolf, sho did not look like a person' who would bo trod upon without finding sonio way to turn. Sho was dork, with a strong, hand-' somo face, heavy brows that met above! ft very determined uoso, a beautiful! clrin nnd bright, brown eyes, but tbo most notable thing about her was her height. Tall, taken in the · ordinary- sen so, would not describo her,- for she stood G foot 1 iii the lowest heeled shoes sho could bay, and the neighbors lie . clarcd that though over 20 she'was growing yet--a fact'which filled her parents with pride, her brothers with envy and herself with fierce rebellion. Sho detested the curious looks that followed her when she went to town, tho inevitable jokes about the state of tho atmosphere "up where she was," and references to "the long aud the short of it" or the probable diminutive height of the man Eho would marry. Sho was thinking of it now, as abe saw how far she had to stoop to reach tho bnsin, and the littlo fit of auger attendant ou the thought made her even moro deliberate than usual, so that at last Mrs. Stobbius broke forth In spite of herself. You'vo tool; five minutes for every fingor now," sbo cxolaimed wmthfuily/ "If you w.ish tl.o palms tho same way, I'll bo able to do tho batter- nod 'git down to th' field ahid of yon,. Hit takes all big things 'so -long to more," I'lngtad tho boys didn't grow nomorel" Eudora flushed and threw cut the water with a moro hurried motion.. That lust was tho only taunt that ever liad tho least effect upon her. Then she wont into tho pantry and began to cut a loaf of bread. Vou bottor cat it all," her mother called, '"cuuse there's four of them to- daj--pa's got Joe Sampson holpin,- too aii don't forgic to leave tho mustard oat o 1 JOO'B sandwiches, either. Put in lots of piokols, and take the apple pie --En-do-vy 1 Do you he-ar ine?" as no Eouucl but the rattlo of dishes came from tho depths of tho breezy pantry. "Yes, mu," paid Eudora shortly, and tor a low minutes tho churn had the 3oor entirely to itself. But presently MM. Stobbius broko out again. "What'd you got them spoous out for anyway," 6ho demanded. "If plated nns ain't £ood enough for Gus Sanderly, why he'd better stay away, that's all Ho lin't no botter'n my boys er Joo Sampson.

"Yes,.ma," said Eudora, and silence reigned onco moro. In a moment she came out of the carrying a big tin pail full of Uuiior, and set it quietly down on th« able. Her mother looked up to see if there woro any signs of wrath in the · girl'i aco, but was mot by the quiet blank-; icss that always exasperated her. "I vish you wouldn't go ronud looking iko sioh a graven image," she ojaculat* d. "You won't catoh any feller at'Sll- f you don't look out You better moke onio ginger writer to take down too. t's iiwfnl hot today, an, mind yon; if ou ask Gus Sanderly up to tea tomor- row I'm goin to ask Joo Sampson too," and then nothing more was said as Ku- dora took down her old suu hat.frc-m behind the kitchen door and. taking tha pail in one hand aud the pitcher iu the other, stopped slowly out into tho warm light of the glowing summer n'oon. When tho house was hidden behind the turn of the little lime, sbo stopped ;i moment and set her burdens down. But she rose agiiiii, stretching out her litho young figure with a feeling of utter freedom niul relief. She found her head well up in the lu\v luiug boughs of a stanch old applo trte, whose twign slapped saucily at her checks awl sent the big hut flying rakit-hly down over the tip of her determined nosa Sho giivc an angry littlo try, and ns «ho disuutnuglrd hcrtelf her t:ice flushed hotly. "ThufB it," sho cried, "always my height--my awful height! What other girl is there iu thin whole state who lins to walk nroniid with her head up into tho trees? And it's just so every way--I wish ma would bo · sensible about Gus Siimler!y. Goodues.s knows I don't think he's much to brag of either, 'butcun't she seo he's tho ou'ly'follow round I don't look silly with? · If there was only au iuoh or two difference'be- twevii Joe and me now---but a whole foot, "- and as she picked up the pail aud pitcher oiice more she'Riive (i really tragic little p-onu, for JcxrSumpson,'the only son and heir of their next -door neighbor, was generally acknowledged to be the handsomest, "smartest" and bc«t young mim in tho county, and'a devoted admirer of Eudora Stebbiuff only, and it was a very big oiily, too,! as Eudora was the tallest girl for miles around, so he was tho shortest man, measuring but 5 feet !· in the very highest heeled boots that he could' by any means buy or wear. Endow had remarked after he had, taken her home from a party one night that she felt very-much like picking him up in her arms-and' telling him "not to be scared of the dark--she'd carry him safe home," and after that night she systematically refused to walk or dance or ride with 1 'him under any circumstances, by daylights or byddrk, so causing the poor little man great anguish of soul. He knew juf as well as eho did how ridiculous they looked together, and his height was oven a greater cross to him than hers was to her, but he was quite willing to sacrifice these personal feelings on tho altar of^his love, aud he thought eho might be too. But Eudora was firm and drove both Joe and her family nearly frantic by her evidout preference for the lazy bour,i of tho town--gigantic Gns Sau- dorly, who allowed his mother to support him from tho proceeds of her littlo candy store end accepted tho worship of silly young ·women as if It had been his by divine-right. At present he had really done Eudora the honor, to _fall slightly in love-.with her, and she was -not at all · surprised when at the next turn of the winding country loiie a tall,- broad figure rose from the comer'of the snake'fence andj doffing its correct straw hat, come quickly toward her. "I thought you'd be coming down today," he said In his soft, deep voioeJ "Let me carry those things for yon- well, -the pitcher anyway," and as she let him take it from her she looked np| into his lazy blu* «jwwith a feeling of pleasurable relief. It WAS so good to bo able to loot up at anybody at all He was the only person she know with whom 1 she could do it, and even if'bo had been' the wont -kind of J a bad fellow, whichl he waanot by any means, she would have enjoyed bis company for that reason alone. They made a magnificent pair us they walked on aide by side--both so straight and tail, so · handsome and so healthy, and poor' little' Joe Sampson teaKwxl it i ·with a sickening catoh iu hie throot as . ho'stopped'to push his broad hat from his heated forehead-mid eaWthem coming to ward! him. He had made his''father very-angry that-morning by insisting upon-going over to. help the Stebbinsea with their belated hay instead of going into'town with a load- of their own, -and he had done it simply because he knew- the men would not be likely to leave the distant field' for' dinner and that in that case Eudora-would 1 briiig ; It- down to them and wait until they were through;' to carry back the pail and cups again,,and he knew from former experiences how considerate-Mr.- Stebbius ' and : 'tberboys would be about leaving, them alone- and that under these circumstances, · away from all prying or, joking eyes, Eudora would unbend and .talk and laugh and be sweet and friendly -with -him., Taking air this iuto'accouut it is not ta-be wondered at that 1 tho~ sight of "b'ig - .Sanderly, -who was all he wished to be and -was not, walking -down' in' close and evidently pleasant 'converse with Endora should turn -all Joe's thoughts to bitter ones 4hd- Hike his handsome eyes grow dark with aogpir," He was not even mollified" when Endora produced the pile of ' sandwiches mads expressly for him, withent' a -bit of mustard, or when she gave him the biggest quarter of the pie, and'whGnthe two visitors started to pick up the debrii and journey buck agaiu to · their own' dinners ho determined to-go along with: them.

'Endora saw the eugiuo rushing round the curve; then with a cry throw both · arms before her face and sank down on the path, while Gus stood by her, motionless with fear and horror. .And then, above tho rush and roar and rattle of tho train, Endora ho:m.'-- not tho shriek of awful agony fur ·which she waited, but a wildly ringing clu-er, and when sho looked again tho au-:were niching swiftly by, and .-,;i., aui Gus were stunning all jilono U^UH thu bank--for littlo Joo bud vanished.
