By this the chaff was blown away and only the grain was left. When Boaz winnowed his barley Naomi told Ruth to go down to his threshing floor and see him for he had a feast for his friends. So after the feast Ruth came near to him and said, "Thou art our near kinsman," and Boaz said,

Do not scatter your energies like chaff to be blown hither and thither. How often do we meet women who complain of being nervous. What they really mean is that they have not control of their nerves but let them run away. A woman may be of a nervous temperament and yet have such good control of her nerves that she never complains of being nervous.

"There's a bun-fight at the Bruces' to-night," Hal ran on, "with Llaney to play the violin, and Lascelles to sing quite an elaborate affair : so it is sure to be very boring ; but I suppose Alymer will be there, looking adorably beautiful, and all the women gazing at him. It will be entertaining to chaff him, anyhow." "Well, don't tell him you found nie weeping," with a little laugh.

"Now you're chaffing again. Do you always chaff?" "Mostly; it lubricates things, doesn't it?" There was a little pause.

Most of their acquaintances in the station came up one after the other for a chat. There were many fresh introductions, and there was so much conversation and laughter that the girls had little time to attend to what was going on around them. Wilson and Richards both sauntered up after changing, and were the subject of much chaff as to their brilliant riding at the finish.

Little Miss Pimpernell tried to cheer me up telling me to "hope on, hope ever;" and, to stick steadily to my work, for, that Min would be certain to come back soon, when all would be well.

Stephen's. At the same time, if he cared to indulge his own ready wit, or to make use of the amusing extracts he has stored away in his memory, he could doubtless make some lively and diverting speeches.
