Ailsie looked appealingly at her

recent illness nad by no meaua

George Raleigh, the editor of
"Through the World" was one of
the literary celebrities of New York;
he was a handsome, proudfeatured
man, and despite a daah of gray on
on the temples, retained a look of
youth that was most attractive.
He had not always been prosper
ous. There were days in his recol
lection when poverty had stared
him closely in'hia face, but that was
all past now, and to-nigbt, aa he
sat in his study, he was a picture of
earnest successful inauhood.
When his door opened, he was too
busy to eveu tarn his head, but
when a hand laid itself on his shoul
der, a glad voice called his name,
he started to his feet, "Kitty,'' he
cried, "Kitty T'
She leaned against him trembling
with delight, her eyes were fall of
laughter, but her voice laltered in
spite of herself. "I knew you'd be
glad to see me; you arn't vexed
with me, are you ? I had to come.
I telt 83 it I wouldn't grow better,
until I had been here again. Oh,
uncle, I'm glad I didu't die." He
stroked her hair in silence, words
were inadequate, language could
never express his gratitude.
"Why, darling," be said, leadihg
her to her fayorite chair, "do you
know since your illness 1 haven't
worked with any heart ? A little
longer absence on your part, and
poor old Through the World'
would have fallen off sadly.''
She smiled. "How kind you are,
it is good to be here, just to our
selves in this dear little ' room.
Nothing is changed, the same books
the same paper, the same qaeer lit-
tie vase on your desk."
"Yes," he answered, ''but the rose

He laughed, it was easy to grati
fy her whim, if the story she sel
ected as worthy, proved to be quite
''impossible," it would be hard to
coin some reason for Us rejection.
"Very well, you shall be good or
bad angel to some ambitious writer;
which manuscript do yon prefer?''
"That one,'' pointing with one
thin finger to a flat package addres
sed in dashing characters to the ed
itor of "Through the World," 'I

IfDigoy Kent, of Belle-Terre,
Louisiaua could have guessed who
would be the reader ot his manas
script, he woald not have suffered
such anxiety as to its fate, but be
could uot well foresee that fortune
would play him so pretty a jest as
to substitute for the grave editor ot
"Through the World," his young
aud uncritical niece.
It was a pretty story, grave, mer
ry, pathetic by turn ; the local
touches were sketched in with a
bold hand ; the love strong, twining
like a silver thread through the
narrative, added piqaancy aud zest.
Ailsie had twice knocked, aud
had as many times been sent away.
When the last page of "After the
Crevasse" drifted to the floor, Ra
leigh turned to find his assistant
critic in tears.
"It is not fair" she said, meetiug
bis amused glance, "everything was
getting on so well; I was quite rea

"I ? not really I !"
"Yes, you and no other ; here,
wait a momeut," he caught ap the
seattering pages, scanned them
closely, observed the method and
style of the writer, then turning,
gave hia alUpowerful verdict.
"It is by no means bad ; come sit
down and write as I tell you."
"But uucle, he wont understand ;
my baudwriting is just like a girl's.
Do you think it would be right?1'

"Well, what if I do?"
"Oh, but Kitty, how abaurb !"
There, you are very rude, and
can go away."
"Indeed, and have you any par

"Uncle said I might come here
when I chose."
"He also made the same remark
to me, but hero hn comes."
"Uncle," cried Mins Delamore,
runuing to meet him, "I don't kuow
what baa come over Jack, he is so
unpleasant." Rileigh looked from
one flushed face to the other.
"Little children, love oue aoothe
er,'' he 6aid, softly. Kitty laughed
but Jack, growing crimson, turned
and left the room. Hia departure
seemed to gratify hie cousin, for she
exclaimed gleefully :
"Now. we cau have a nice talk all
to ourselves." She poshed her un
cl-d into a chair, end began extract
ing the manuscripts from his pock

"Boys," he repeated. "Jack is

riedly, "are you running away irom
"Yes," breathlessly, "from, two
ladies. Horter is showing them in

Here Horter threw open the door.
"Mrs. Clendenuing," be announced,
and staring nervously at the card he
held, "Digby Kent."
"You goose,'' cried Kitty to Jack:
(uyou said two ladies.''
"Aud so they were,' he irini.ted.
"And so they are," cried Raleigh.
"Mrs. Clendeuning,'' to the stately
womau who had entered, "permit
me to present to you my niece. Miss
Delamore, and my cousin, John Ca
rried, Miss Clendenuing,' smjliug
across at the young and graceful
girl, "my little ward has long desired

Kitty could only stare, eveu when
her new acquaintance, clasping ter
hand, murmured some pretty words
ot gratitude, aud pleasure she did
not altogether understand.
"If you could guess," said Miss
Clendenning, warmly, "how mu.di
your note encouraged me, you
would not regret having sent it. Aly

She told Jack afterwards that she
felt as if the world were spinning
around, but at the time she mau
aged tc hide her dismay.
After a moment, however, she got
up and left the room ; it was not a
very polite thing to do, particularly
as Mrs. Clendenning had no cue to
talk to (Jack having already slipped
away), but her braiu was in too
great a whirl to worry over such
small matters as courtesy.
With hurrying steps she made her
way to tbe conservatory; to her
surprise she found JacK awaiting

A good ioko is told on two young

had arranged to take his two aiatera

his arm and yelled : "Galloway's

say auother word, the young ladies
rushed by hho, aud on to the front

passengers were amused.
A few more stations were paused
aud the porter agaiu came through

very still and thoughtful in their
s-'ats, and when the porter came by
