while in town might be found almost

'As I got on the tnain I went im-

raised tbe window and gaz.'d out at
the whirling landscape, and indulged
in a d uT-dream of fairy-like air castles
as the train sped on to the monotonous
tune or its evenasting clatter, clatter,
clatter, clatter, plat, plat, plat, over
the ties- speeding througn meadow,'
woods and dale, while the sun sank
slovlv to rest in a halo of glory behind
the wesfeni hills. But I have, ever
found it true, that when wo imagine
ourselves most 'happy and contented
with ourselves and the world in general,
a disturoing, element is strre to pop up.
hThere were several parties on the car
who seemed "to think that m order to
keep ones-spirit's up it-was "'necessary to
pour them down, and their 'load dis
cushion of politics in general, and
"Why Farmers are Poor," in particu

retired to the sleeper.
"As I entered the coach ajal looked
aroifnd for a vacant seat, I was con
fronted by a pair of daisy-blue- eyes,
fringed with long drooping lashes, and
a "face of such exquisitely beautiful
peach-blossom tint, that I was for the
moment completely daz -d 1 could
scarce get -mv breaih and I was so
iitrw.ij I am sure I was awkward, in
t lie extreme, for I could no more cou

"There is no ife talking, gentlemen,
it was love on first sight, and I lei t
then and there that it would be a
pleasure-to die for just such an angelic
face as the one before me, surrounded
by a cluster of brown curls, with a
nervous, twitching little. rose-bud of a
mouth, which seemed to be asking for
sympathy, aid and love.
"1 he only entirely vacant seat vylis
just behind this paragon of loveliness,
and i dropped down! in it m "a state of

'there came stealing over my
senses, imparting. a balmy feeling of
dizziness, the faint sweet odor of the
delicate perfume of violets indescrib

"Just across the aisle from -me, sat
two gentlemen, one seemingly about
fifty years of age, with an intelligent
face and dignified bearing, wearing a5
neat-htting iron-gray- suit, -a modest
gold watch chain, and eye-glasses. He
smiled ninthly at me as he nodded, his
head in polite recognition - of my en

of the newspaper he had been reading.

the parties opposite. I watched this for
some time, all the while feeling ill at

some mesmeric spell, and felt that. I
must do something in order to divert
the magnetic influence which seemed
unconsciously to be stealing over me;
so I took out my order book and turned
over the leaves in an abstracted7 man

and fell over the seat in front of me,
almost in the lap of the lady sitting
there. . This so confuted me that I
scarcely knew what to do whether
to apologize to the lady and nk a
return of the book, or whether I should
lean over and secure the book without
attracting her attention. At this mo

wistful, timid glance at me, drew a
