After some expostulation he accepted the decree and went to work. About three months after this avar icious young lady, meeting her lover, asked: "Well, Charlie, how are you getting along?" "Oh, very well indeed," Charlie re turned, cheerfully. "I've saved thirty five shillings." The young lady blushed, and look ed down at the toes of her boots, and stabbed the inoffensive earth with the point of her parasol. "I think," she said, faintly—"I think, Charlie, that's about near enough.''
