A HEART TO LET.
"llic said .Viss Wilhelmina. "1
think I've got it Mack enough now!"
Miss Willielinina had been wrestling
with pen and ink. N'ot that she was
a literary I s I.- that was far from be
ing the case.
The effusion upon which she was so
hard at work was neither more nor
less than a big "TO LET," printed on
the hack of a slit el of her deceased
father's sermon paper, and she viewed
it with solemn satisfaction.

she, "nor I won't pay good, hard mon

In answer to the last word, spoken
ia quick, arbitrary accents, a hright
eyedgirlof seventee.t came running
in, wiping her dimpled hands on a
frilled apron. Her cheeks were lluhel

brown hair was coiled in a luMrcus
braid at tho bad; of her bead, and her
hmg-lashed hazel eyes sparkled like di
amonds. "What is it, aunty y" said Heryl
"Get the paste-pot and a brush,"
ttaid Miss Wilhclmina, "and put up
this -TO l.VV"."
Beryl lonki d lirst at her aunt, and
.hen at the fat, black -lettered sign, in

Beryl colored violently.
"But, Aunt Willielinina," said she,
it was m that Cousin Fred wrote for
to cane and help Lily, and be a com
panion to the girls."
"Ves, I know," said Wilhclmina,
with the Indifference of utter selfish
ness; "but Fred hadn't any idea how
young and inexperienced you are, and
I've w rote him that 7 will come there,
if he'll pay me liberal wages and give
me the complete management of every
thing." "Hut, Aunt Willielinina
"What is to become of me?" pleaded
"Some' people are always thinking of
themselves!" said Miss Willielinina
sharply. "Why, what should become
of you? You can g't a place with
Mrs. Somerset in thu millinery busi

And now don't stand there, looking as

chimney, but bustle out and put up
that notice as sharp as possible, for it's
a nice day, and all the house-hunters

Beryl obeyed, with nn indescribable
"celing as if the whole world were
irning itself upside down.
And as she leaned over the iron rail
of the steps, fastening the big "TO
LET" against the mildewed brick wall,
a certain scent of greening grass and
opening dandelions saluted her senses,
while the warble of a prisoned thrush
in a cage across the street, reminded
her of a visit she bad once made, years
and years ago. to this same Cousin
Fred up in Leicestershire.
The tears came, unlld ten, into
"Oh, how delightful it would be to
ive in the real country!" she said to
herself. "And I know I could make
myself useful at Cousin Fred's. But
if Aunt Willielinina is going herself,
I here is an end of the matter."
For Beryl was too well used to her
aunt's overbearing egotism even to at
tempt a s'ruggle against it.
All her life long she had been the j
victim of Aunt Wilhelmina's selilsh-j
ness. It was too late fur any rebellion "Yes!"
