even, if that editor dou't. He is a
bad, ciuei man, aud I will tell him
so ! You sbaot ever write any more
for him, even if he gets dowa ou

Then ihe violet eyes overflowed,
and Fred ilea's sobs came fast and
faster, and her mother forgot her
own pain in soothing the child.
When ishe was comforted nd
calm again it wa3 time for Mrs. Le
Charlton to go oat ; so, calling Mrs.
Johnson, the otie help of the house

kissed her many times aud hurried
away, promising to return early.
Agues LeCharltcn was a fashion

She bad aspirations aud talents

No woDder the Jittle heart swelled
with indignation at the man who
bad rejected it! " ' ' '
As she thought about it after ber

a sudden, bold determintiion. Kan-

Turning iu bis chair, be caw a
diminutive figure before bim ; a tiuy
maid with deep bloe eyes, witb a
hahi "of gbldeu hair that burled

frock soiled by the dust of the city
streets, stood gazing at him.
The small bands were clasped
and unclasped nervously as she felc
tbe keeu gaze of the editor upon
her. Her composure was disturbed
aud her voice quivered, a, making!
an effort to be brave, she began
azaiu :, , "Why do. you seod.back

The quivering voice had gained

the end of ber recital the big editor
gave a growl that frightened Fred

jump off his knee. But when she

"I'm not tbe man who sees the

Eric looked grave, but found that
she knew ibeir address, although
she could uot tell very accurately

by the baud and passed out of tbe

Durinj,: the talk that .followed,
Agues learned that Fredrica's new
friend was an edit r, and one of the
proprietors of the big eveuiujr paper
to which she bad feut the Nicy
which was returoed. It was not a
par: of bis work to examine such
matter, .o Mrs. LeCharltonV man-

her to show him bee work.
She brought out the story aud
otber sketches with iuward pertur
bation, and gave them to him. Be
fore he had half finished the firet,
there was tbe light of approval in
hise.es, aod Agnes felt tbat tie
found something of worth in her
writiog. His words of praise were
tew but sincere, and the criticisms
be made were gratefully received.
When Eric Boyntou left Ibem,
after au affectionate farewell from
little Fredrica, he carr ed tho ttory

Within a week's time tbe story ap
peared in the columns of his paper.
It was a simple, but skilfully drawn
picture ot hie in the South, where
Agnes had speut her girlhood. It
pleased tbe public who were satiated
with the seueational, unreal tales
that were flooding tbe periodicals.
Thanks to Boy n ton's influence,
