Miss Apperthwaite was at home the
following Saturday. I found her In
the library with "Les Miserables" on
her knee when I came down from my
room a little before lunch time; and
she looked up and gave me a smile
that made me feel sorry for any one
she had ceased to smile upon.
"I wanted to tell you," I said, with
a little awkwardness but plenty of
truth. "I've found out that I'm an aw awful
ful awful fool."
"But that's something," she returned
encouragingly "at least the beginning

"I'm glad you do," I said.
A little hardness one might even
have thought it bitterness became
apparent In her expression. "And I'm
glad there's somebody in that house,
at last, with a little Imagination!"
"From everything I have heard," I
returned, summoning sufficient bold boldness,

Her glance fell from mine at this,
but not quickly enough to conceal a
sudden, half-startled look of trouble
(I can think of no other way to ex express
press express it) that leaped into it; and she
rose, for the lunch-bell was ringing.
"I'm just finishing the death of Jean
Valjean, you know, in 'Les Miser Miser-ables,'

door. "I'm always afraid I'll cry over
that. I try not to, because it makes
my eyes red."
And, in truth, there was a vague
rumor of tears about her eyes not as
if she had shed them, but more as If
she were going to though I had not
noticed it when I came in.
That afternoon, when I
reached the Despatch office, I was

"Well, sir I guess Hadn't you

This with the air of a man who
would be but too fluent and copious

the one particular point.
I never met anybody else who looked
so pleasantly communicative and man managed

was not cultivated: you could see
that "the secret of it" was that he was
My note-book remained noteless,
and finally, at some odd evasion of
his, accomplished by a monosyllable,
I laughed outright and he did, too!
He joined cachinnations with me
heartily, and with a twinkling qulzzl qulzzl-calness
calness qulzzl-calness that somehow gave me the
Idea that he might be thinking (rather
apologetically) to himself: "Yes, sir,
that old Beasley man Is certainly a
mighty funny critter!"
When I went away, a few moments
later, and left him still intermittently
chuckling, the Impression remained
with me that he had some such depre deprecatory
catory deprecatory and surreptitious thought.
Two or three days after that, as I
started down-town from Mrs. Apper Apper-thwalte's,
thwalte's, Apper-thwalte's, Beasley came out of his
gate, bound In the same direction. He
gave me a look of gay recognition and
offered his hand, saying, "Well! Up
In this neighborhood !" as If that were
a matter of considerable astonishment.
I mentioned that I was a neighbor,
and we walked on together. I don't
think he spoke again, except for a
"Well, sir!" or two of genial surprise
at something I said, and, now and
then, "You don't tell me I" which he
had a most eloquent way of exclaim exclaiming
ing exclaiming ; but he listened visibly to my own
talk, and laughed at everything that
I meant for funny.
I never knew anybody who gave one
a greater responsiveness; he seemed i
to be with you every instant ; and how
he made you feel It was the true mys-j
tery of Beasley, this silent man who
never talked, except (as my cousin
said) to children.
It happened that I thus met him, as
we were both starting down town, and
walked on with him, several days in
succession ; In a word, it became a
habit. Then, one afternoon, as I
turned to leave him at the Despatch
office, he asked me if I would drop in
at his house the next day for a cigar
before I started. I did; and he asked
me if I would come again the day
after that. So this became a habit
A fortnight elapsed before I met
Hamilton Swift, Junior; for he, poor
little father of dream-children, could
be no spectator of track events upon
the lawn, but lay in his bed upstairs.
However, he grew better at last, and
my presentation took place.
We had just finished our cigars In
Beasley's airy, old-fashioned "sitting "sitting-room,"
room," "sitting-room," and were rising to go, when
there came the faint creaking of small
wheels from the hall. Beasley turned
to me with the apologetic and mono monosyllabic
syllabic monosyllabic chuckle that was distinctly
"I've got a little chap here he
said; then went to the door. "Bobl"
The old darky appeared in the door doorway
way doorway pushing a little wagon like a re-cllnlng-chalr
on wheels, and in It sat
Hamilton Swift, Junior.
My first Impression of him was that
he was all eyes : I couldn't look at any anything
thing anything else for a time, and was hardly
conscious of the rest of that wea weazened,
zened, weazened, peaked little face and the under undersized
sized undersized wisp of a body with Its pathetic
adjuncts of metal and leather. I think
they were the brightest eyes I ever
saw as keen and Intelligent as a
wicked old woman's, withal as trust trustful
ful trustful and cheery as the eyes of a setter
; Thus the Honorable Mr. Beasley,
waving a handkerchief thrice around
his head and thrice cheering.
And the child, in that cricket's
voice of his, replied:
This was the form of salutation fa familiarly
miliarly familiarly in use between them. Beas

Beasley executed a formal bow.
"There Is a gentleman here who'd like
to meet you." And he preserved me
with some grave phrases commenda commendatory
tory commendatory of my general character, address addressing
ing addressing the child as 'Mister Swift";
whereupon Mister Swift gave me a
ghostly litle hand and professed him himself
self himself glad to meet me.
"And besides me," he added, to
Beasley, "there's Bill Hammersley and
Mr. Corley Linb ridge."
A faint perplexity manifested ltfelf
upon Beasley's face at this, a shadow
which cleared at once when I asked if
I might not be permitted to meet these
personages, remarking that I had
heard from Dowden of Bill Hammers Hammersley,
ley, Hammersley, though until now a stranger to
the fame of Mr. Corley LInbrldge.
Beasley performed the ceremony
with intentional elegance, while the

his cousin's face to mine and back

Fairfield, Dec. 18. The people of
Irvine and Fairfield were greatly
shocked Friday, Dec loth, when the
death angel visited the home of Mr.
and Mrs.- Joe Cherry of Irvine, taking j
their infant son, Elvin, age two eyars.
The little fellow accidentally got hold
of some sugar-coated pills containing
strychnine and chewed up a number.
The mother summoned the father
from his work. He jumped into Mr.
Sapp's car and Derwood Sapp drove
with all speed for a physician at
Fairfield, only to find on their arrival
that the doctor was out on a call. A
physician at Mcintosh was called and
ho was preparing to come when the
child died. The child had several
convulsions before he died. The little
fellow had already absorbed so much
of the poison that medical aid would
have been of no avail.
The body was taken to the home of
the little boy's grandparents, Mr. and
Mrs. W. H. Leverett, where loving
hands and willing hearts performed
the last duties. The remains were laid
to rest in the Baptist cemetery at
Fairfield, the funeral services being
conducted by Rev. Ray Waldron Jr.
Mr. and Mrs. Cherry and Mr. and
Mrs. Leverett wish to thank each and
every one for the help and sympathy
tendered and also for the floral of offerings.
