THE MAJOR'S ESCAPE.
Major Anthony Hartletop was a
very good match indeed, as Miss An-

richest farmer in the neighborhood of
sugar Maple village.
As for Miss Angerona, she was not
very young, but neither was she old.
bhe was not remarkably plain, nor
could she be called pretty. For the
rest, she was rather sharped featured
and sharp-tongued, so the neighbors
declared, though the major had not
discovered this fact.
Miss Dil worth was not a benevo
lent person, yet she had taken her or
phan niece, Avis, to raise.
Avis Dil worth was a hearty, mer
ry girl, in spite of her aunt's crabbed
temper, with a round face, deep dim
ples in her cheeks, a pair of laughing
bluegray eves, and plenty of vim
and life about her, though demure
and quiet as a nun under Miss Ange
rona's sharp eyes.
Indeed, many people asserted that
if Avis were only decently dressed,
and allowed the advantages she de
served, she would be quite a belle.
ButMiss Dil worth's old garment's
however neatly made over, were not
sufficient to set off a good figure to
They were all poor Avis was al-

At last Major Hartletop had pro
posed to Miss Angeroua, in a good,
substantial, plainly expressed letter;
ana Miss Angeroua had determined
to accept the proposal.
"If he a bald and ugly," she re
marked to herself, "he's rich, and
money covers a multitude of bad
looks. Besides, it'll spite that stuck
up Widder Flukes, that's been a set
ting her cap at him this mouth or
more; an' as long as she wants him
I U have him, it lie was bald
egg an ten times as ugly as he is!"
But, in spite of his. defects, Major
Hartletop was good hearted, and as
romantic as many a man with a elos-
7 ueaa oi nair ana no wart on hit
He was really in love with Miss
Angerona, and after sending his pro
posal, the moments seemed weighted
with Jead until he could receive her
At last his impatience grew un
"I won't wait no longer," he de
clared. 'Til just call around and get
her answer right away. t I shan't
sleep a wink tonight, 1 know."
And popping his hat on bis head,
lie set oifon the wiuding,country road
which led to Mits Angerona's dwell
ing, his mind busy with pleasant fan
cies ot what the future might have
"How nice it'll be to have my wife
a setting at the head of the table, or
stepping around the house, overseein'
the butter aud cheese mak in' ," he
"An' that pretty Avis, too. She
shall have better clothes than she
wears now. I s'prose Angerony can't
atlord to dress her any better: but I 11
ece to that. She shall have . a white
dress, with lace flounces, an' one o'
them crimpy things girls wear around
their necks, to stand up with us
And so, his mind busy with cheer
ful pictures of the happy future, he
reached Miss Angerona 8 house, as
cended the steps, and was about to
knock on the open door, when a
shrill, high pitched voice reached his
"A new dress! No, Avis Dilworth,
you can t nave it: a pretty question
to ask, when 1 ve got my own clothes
to buy, if- I marry that bald headed
scare crow, as 1 s pose l slum A Hue
thing for you to come asking for duds,
"But, aunt," returned Avis, plead
ingly, "I haven't anything fit to wear
"Oh, indeedhSo you go to church
to show your clothes, hey? You bet
ter stay at home if that's what you go
fur. An' when 1 marry old riartie-
ttfp why he coudn't have a decent

rich. I shill be as saviu' of his
money as I kin, so when he dies I'll
have something fur myself. An' now
go 'long an' milk that cow; she's been
a bawlin' this half hour."
The poor majf, half stupefied by
this astonishing revelation, stumbled
off the steps aud got out of the gate
he scarcely knew how.
And now here was a predicament!

Erf b. roamed, .Lopping hit l e d

yet, ho w was he to get out of marry
ing her, if she ehose to accept him?
s He bad serious doubts whether be
ing called a "bald headed scare crow
would exonerate a mat), in tfee eyes
of the law and public opinion, in re
fusing to fulfill his offer of marriage.
And yet, marry her he couldn't
he wouldn't. Thus be assured him
self over and over again.
Miss Angerona, meanwhile, pro
ceeded to write her letter, accepting
Major Hartletop's proposal. Having
written it, she laid it on a corner of
a table to dry. and with coni Dressed
lips and a look of determination in
her cold, gray eyes, she drew anoth
er letter from her pocket, and open
ing it, read
"My Dear Avis: I have called
twice to see you, but your aunt re
fused me admittance to the house. I

to the uostofiice herself.
'Now 1 know they're safe,' she
commented, with a sigh of relief, as
she retraced her steps toward home.
Major Hartletop had passed a
wretched uight. According to his own
statement, he had not slept a wink.
When Jake Soper the hired hand,
brought in the morning's mail, as
usual, he felt a nervous tingle down
to his finger ends.
With a quaking hand he opened
Miss Angeroua's letter, and, much to
his relief, read:
'I have received your letter, and
my answer is No. I can never marry
you. A. Dilworth.'
To say the major was delighted
would hardly express his feels. He
almost felt as if he could forgive Miss
Angerona for calling him a 'bald
headed scare crow,' in consideration
of her having refused him.
Tucking the letter in his pocket, he
went whistling about the house, like
a school boy.
After dinner, he saddled his riding
mare and rode down to the village,
to see a trader about buying some of
his fat cattle for beef.
Tying his 'nag' under a shady tree,
he proceeded toward the village store
and met Miss Angerona face to face.
She simpered, smiled and tried to
blush. The major bowed coldly and
Astonished and chagrined, Miss
Angerona detained him, and demand
ed the cause of such behavior.
'What behavior?' asked the major,
'To pass me without speaking,
when when we are engaged to be
'Engaged!' cried the major. 'Why,
you have refused me!'
'I didn't: I accepted you!' contra
dicted the lady, flatly. "
'I have your refusal in black and
white; here it is!' he retorted.
And taking a crumpled note from
his poeket, he read it out to her.
'1 I it's a mistake!' gasped Miss
Angerona. 'I never meant ill'
'But you wrote it, and that's
enough for me. Good morning,

about selling his beeves, while Miss
Angerona stood angrily beating her
self for her own blunder.
'I must have sent the wrong letter,

And she hastened her steps home

the unlucky mistake.
But she was too late. The house
was shut up; no signs of life about,
no Avis to be seen. Un the dining
table lay a note, which said:
"Dear Aunt: Since you have ac

is quite an elderly wealthy gentleman,
having for his second wife a lady many
years his junior aud much petted. Any-
express wish of hers he has at once grati
fied, if money could be the niedum. One
evening she remarked iu her charming
way, ' I saw today at storo a lovely
camel' huir 6hawl that I want ever so
much. Would you bring home to-morrow
a check! It's only $1,500." "Yes, dear,"
he replied. "I Will bring the aionej,"
and the next evening, with the assistance
of bis porter, he did bring home! and plac
ed on the parlor table fifteen hnndreu sil
ver dollars. At the sight of this pile of
metal, weighing nearlv a h aud red pounds
the wife exclaimed: "What are you go
ing to do with all that money!"' "Why!
love, it's the money yon wanted for the
new shawl." Good gracious! Dees it take
all that to make $1,500! Why I bad no
idea it meant so much. I will do with
out the shawl and will pat it all in the
savings bank, if you will let me." And
she did so, and she lias since added sev
eral sums to the deposits. Mr. WL affirms,
on his honor, that since that event she
has not asked for a quarter part so much
money as before the incident. The abov
