" I cerl.iinly do owe you cverytliine.
It's a profanation to mention money in
connection with tlitit sort of indebted
ness; hut, Lavinia, I shall try to dis
charge part of it in another way."
Miss Vin smiled and blushed, pluck
ing at one of the roses climhinc; all about
lliu window, with lowered head and
very great embarrassment.
Sidney, however, saw nothing; of this:
his thoughts wire projected into th
future; and, nithough his gaze rested
dreamily on the lliingfi about him, his
fancy had taken a wild flight, aud wr..
busy with very diuVrcnl objects. Ami
there was a silence, Luvinia frightened.
Just then Can !' appeared, with hci
draw lint on and the strawberry-basket
in her hand, looking a grout deal like u
figure out of a picture.
"I want jou, Sidney."
And, with his honest smile, fiwuy went
Sidney to stain his hands with picking
Iivinia looked after them with :i
fided slanee jut the shadow of some
thing not vexation, but a gleam of srnl
ness and disappointment; ami she went
in and was rather quiet for a few min
utes, hustling nbout the room, and
finally over to the glass, where she took
a stolen peep at her own comely fea
tures. She saw a woman of thirty, etiil
pretty, and even handsome.
Well, there was certainly no disparity
ofnges, lor he was quite thirty also
some months more.
"That is what he means, I think,''
said Lavinia, after deep cogitation.
" lie does owe me everything, just as In
says, nnd I I helieve lie likos me. We
grew up together, and it is only natural.
I shall certainly not do anything rash
I mean, refuse him. I like him, too"
her voice faltered " I never knew until
now how much."
t)id Dorcas camp in with a needle to
thread, and Lavinia drew herself up a
little liaughtiiy at being caugnt before
"Strawberries for dessert, Dorcas.
Carrie will pick them."
" I sec the doctor and her gat herin"
Yin, miss," returned the ancient hand
maid. "I think I never see him look
ingjso well, miss, as this time. Air; it's
not so far oil", I can tell you," said Dor
cas, wi.h a nod and smile.
' What's not far off?"
"Tho question heisroinfi; to nsk you,
Miss Vin. You know very well; and,
if you intend to mat.' him happy, it
takes only the one word."
".Nonsense! I don't even know what
you mean," said Lavinia, with a laugh ol
trepidation and coloring brilliantly, ab
sorbed in the threading process. " The
difference of age, and everything."
"The age is just right, and he is in
earnest. I found this on his desk."
Dorcns produced a sheet of paper on
which was traced many times, in very
beautiful penmanship, surrounded by
acrolU and other marvelous embel
lishments, the name "Mrs. S'dney
Lavinia inspected it eagerly, and then
returned it with a reproving frown.
" You had no business to poke aaion;:

I never dreamed until now that you

tush of grateful tears.

Wonderful things were to be done,

" that it is just the sort of day on which

" What can it be, Sidney f"
You could never guess. It is somc

"Perhaps you had better post pom
" No, I might never have the courage

my education for the very bread I have
eaten. I am in the attitude of one who
still asks favors; this the last. I hope,
but the greatest of all. Vinnie, I am in
love, and one word from you seals my
happiness or misery."
She was silent, looking down on the
grass; but after n minuleshe spoke.
"Sidney, I must say frankly that 1
did not expect it. As to your i-biiga-tion
they c.rc now not bin u; but once I
did think them a tie that should always

lied and pale by turns tremulous,
puzzled and bewildered at first stood
Was there ever before so incredible a
.nistake? He knew uot what to say or
lo. He had intended, to ask Lavinia's
approval of a contemplated proposal
to Carrie and what tin appalling situa
tion had arisen!
lie was, indeed, bound by honor and
gratitude to Lavinia, who had been so
unnl to him, and he had it tided til
ways in some dim fashion to return

.v hat; but paying the debt in Ibis way
had .never entered his thoughts. He

ither ;dea than to -to discharge my ob

Luvinia did not notice it, or, if t-he
lid, put her own interpretation on his
vnfusion. She was quite too happy to

So Dorcas, none the wiser, t hninbli d

window and stood looking out. I do not
know what she saw there; but thus
moments had their tragedy which words
.an give no idea of.
And after a while she went down and
found Sidney si ated on the little porch
list where she had left him. Ii looked
up dismally enough.
"Sidney," she s.id, upruptly, "I

with a little lau."h, in which there wa
