A. SUMMER STUDY. Mrs. Glentworth's country bouse wm familiarly called the "castle," from its miniature towers, turrets and battlements—the "Castle of Indo knce," Dolores Martinez, her lovely goddaughter, playfully designated it when she pleaded guilty to an undue •mount of nappings in the hammock. And the castle was never so delightful to Mrs. Glentworth as when filled with young people, especially when she had guests lovers or those who she trusted would become such. Mistress of a large fortune, a childless widow, with only Dolores, who was orphaned and left to her guardianship, to care for, the little pastime of matchmak­ ing was her ruling passion. She thought herself without a rival in it, and was fond of pointing out the couples who except for her would not have been so happy, and all the time destiny, who had most to do with it, smiled grimly at the good lady's self conceit. Just now she had in mind to mate Hilary Glentworth, her deceased hus­ band's favorite nephew, with Dolo...

I thought everybody had heard of that There were columns and columns about it in the papers for days. Jimminy, how the newspaper fellows tried to interview me! Course I knew better than to say anything, but it was pretty hard to get rid of the reporters. Well, it was like this: I was on No. 5,and we were behind time.

l'Y p. &7 gmm THK TWO 8II1KKCSS. There are two silences. The one Is ot the Hps that breathe no word In answer to love's pleading voice But when the deepest heart is stirred The tones of love are audible In flushing cheeks and beaming eyes. There ne'er was langauge more complete Than that expressed in gentle signs. But when the soul is cold and mute When eyes, no longer eloquent Besponsive to love's fire, are dim, And when no falt'ring red is blent Among the pale pink roses of the face,— Then there is silence, truly blank and lone.

GOING A-GUDDUNG. Dominie Forbes was not in a par­ ticularly angelic frame of mind on that Friday afternoon. Very far from it. Friday has always been my unlucky day, anyhow. If fate, as frequently happens, has any unpleas­ antness in store for me, it is sure to Wwve it till Friday. But Dominie Forbes was, as we boys phrased it, "in a tear" on that particular Friday forenoon something had gone radically wrong with him. Everybody knew that the dominie was deeply in love with a farmer's fair daughter, and that the courtship of Duncan Gray was nothing to his in vicissitudes, for at one time bonnie Jeanie Johnstone smiled him, and at another she laughed at him. And whatever Jeanie's mood was, we poor pupils became the result­ ant it was flog—flog—flog all day when Jeanie was saucy, but when Jeanie was kind everything we did pleased our dominie. As a rule, at all ordinary times Dom­ inie Forbes was a tartar. Squeers was a saint to him. And the tawse—a piece of leather bridle cut at the end...
