CHAPTER IX. Flight. She excused lierselt at the break fast-table, fearing to liear the news of the night. The maid who wakened her had babbled some story of u tramp who had fired the ricks on .Mr. Iiathwaj;'s farm, and had succeeded in burning down the school-house as well. The police were looking for the man, she said, but he was not taken. "A good-for-nething body that should be-in prison," the girl added. Leila' made no comment. It was ten before Desdy awoke, and she must dress him and give him breakfast. When he had gone off to his games with Uobert, the groom (a silly man who knew nothing of motor 'buses and would learn less from so arrogant a master us Desdy), Leila herself went down to the gardens and was not surprised to llnd Hugh wait ing for her. Evasion was possible to neither, and they fell at once to speak ing of the story of the night.

THE NURSE ON NIGHT DUTY. It is a truiani that one-halt of ti>o world docs not know how tho other half lives, uiul certainly few people comprehend' the - unceasing work in hospitals and infirmaries, whore day nurses pass on their duties to night nurses, and night nurses report on tho night to day nurses, with mono tonous exactness and regularity. Yet it is this very regularity which makes night duty in institutions, hard as tho work often is, so much less try ing than the comparatively lighter task of similar work in private houses whore, as a rule, a nurse goes from one acute ease to another. In hospital, night duty is general ly undertaken under sutable condi tions, for a definite period, in pri vate houses, unless absolutely neces sary, it is natural that tho relatives should desire to avoid tho expense of a second nurse, in which case tho one who is single-handed is never free from anxiety, sleeps lightly, and, per haps, gets up more than once during tho night to attend to the...

She remained behind, and as (ho conversation begun to got a little mas culine our friend of the "long robe" was anxious to get rid of the "old maid," and for this purpose rather prematurely aslted Hie privilege of giving a toast. This being granted, he rose and gave the old toast of "Hon est men and bonnie lasses." iT.lie toast was drunk with honor, when the dame, who was sitting next the lawyer, rose from her seat, gavo end of her ibony finger, and, having said, "That toast neither applies to you nor mo," left tho room. ; Telegrams wore invented by the father of lies, undoubtedly, Altor all, anything will do for truth—writ ten on piuk paper in somohody else's pencil scribble.

Everything that thou reprovest ;in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour.
