Yes, as ure as toH livet bnthetwppri vriVi
ttnd
me went over to Bethel rneetiinr house
one evening to prayer meeting, for no other
purpose than that 6f going'horrie with Sally:
I saw him as.lobii as X'd got ini afad he ialv
'Whbtt. meeting was out we both made &
tllve for the door to go iti for the bharicesj
but, as luck would Have it, he got 'entangled
in among the people, and so I beat him to
Sally; and cut him out as slick as a whistle:
If I'd found a chest of gold it wouldn't
have pleased ine a. whit better; for xbu fe'ee
I was already ib love With the gal. We talk
ed and laughed along as merry a crickets,
ana out lor tne met tnat tnere had been, a
shovret of raih the evening before, which
had left puddles of water here and there in
in the road, everything would have beeh
just as it should be:
X or my part, I did nt care a copper for
the puddles in fact, I am riot sure but I
would rather have had them there, for each
one of them made it necessary for toe to take
bally m my arms and leap over; which bv
the way, was anything but disagreeable:
It would certainly have done you cood to
see me put bri the 'agony Ve Very time I came
to one of th'eise puddles. I done it for the
express pttrjpbse bf hurting the feelings bf
Btikej who was following along after its iii
a crowd as ober as a jiidge. Of course
Sally and I led the way all the time. It
was very dark, so dark we could scarcely
see; the ground; yet we could see all the
puddles of water very plainly by reflectibn
waS they looked white'. , ,
'boon after we entered the lawn running
up to Toni Smith's, I a&w fen unusual lahre
awful leap; Do you think I lit safe arid
ound bti the other side? No. siri I lit with
one leg on either side of the rieck of an bid
white cow that lay m the road, and which I
had mistaken for a puddle of water1. The
cow being doubtless as mh'ch surpHs?d as
myself, sprang up hind feet first, and the
next instant Sally and I found ourselves
landed on our heads. But thAt tVas not the
worst of it -one s of thb bid brute's horns
caught in. the . strap of fay waistcoat, , arid
away she went, dragging me down the lawn
dragged roe neatly fifty paces before li er
hold tore loose; but as the road was
perfectly smooth, I sustained but. little friju-
ry. j. ue wily serioua uun niut 1 naa re
bbiVbdwrisau iiitbrrial ohb; arid thai was
caused by the sharp squall that Sally gave
when we lit upon our heads. It went through
toe like a knife, and kept bri ringing in my
tars, iui-1 iiau u u lutu uut me poor gin was
killed. . , . .
'As sobri as I could clear the dirt out of my
w-9 -- .iri . 1 : 1 ...
eyes, 1 nurriea bact to learn the worst. In
a very little while I learrid it, but in a diffe
rent way from any I had expected. . There
came Sally down alons: the other side of the
laA; swinging on Mike's arm, arid laughing
fit tb kijl herself; Don't you think I was
mad? I hadri't a word to say, . but iiist
dropped back and cut across the fields arid
eit mem. . . , ,v . .... .
'A few nights ago, I called dti Sally with
l deterrriiriation to pop the question arid
bring matters tb ft tlbse: ; I went over the
