Jasper and Lois were both greatly pleased, and as they walked away from the house they discussed it like two animated children. "How delighted David will be with the place," Lois remarked. "He will be so comfortable there, I feel sure, and Mrs. Peterson will take such good care of him." "And he will be able to hear the falls so plainly," Jasper replied.

"I won't faint," she cried, "Jasper, don't be afraid. There, I'm all right. Now, oh, what can I do?" "Could you go with me when I tell father?" asked Jasper. "I am so afraid I shall break it to him too sharply; and you know it won't do for him to be startled. If you could, Polly." For the second time, everything seemed to turn black before her eyes, but Polly said bravely, "Yes, I'll go, Jasper."

"Did he send you out here?" "Yes." "What for?" "On a little matter of business," said Jasper, with reserve. "Oh, that's it. Well, you didn't expect the pleasure of seeing me, did you?" "I don't consider it a pleasure," said Jasper, boldly. "Ha! you are a bold boy." "I speak the truth." "Well, it isn't always best to speak the truth," said Jack, frowning. "Shall I lie to you, then?"

None too soon; the door opened and Mr. King came in. "Well well well!" he exclaimed, looking over his spectacles at them all. "Playing games, hey?" "We're going to," said Ben and Jasper together. "No, Polly is going to tell a story," said Van loudly, "that is, if you want to hear it, Grandpapa. Do say you do," he begged, going over to whisper in his ear.

Aggie was sitting under a sunshade in the broiling sun at the tennis court. She said she had not left Bettina and Jasper for a moment, and that they had evidently quarreled, although she did not know when, having listened to every word they said. For the last half-hour, she said, they had not spoken at all. "Young people in love are very foolish," she said, rising stiffly.

"No; it is the truth. I felt sure of it before, and now I know it. You took him in order to extort money from his friends." "Well," said the ruffian, defiantly, "what if I did? Have you anything to say against it?" "Yes," said Jasper. "I shall have to wring your neck by and by," muttered Dick. "Well, go on. Spit out what you've got to say."

"Colliver. He is called Simon Colliver. But, Jasper, what is it? What " I took the chain and Golden Clasp and handed them to Claire without speech. "Why, what is this?" she cried. "He has a piece exactly like this, the fellow to it; I remember seeing it when I was quite small. Oh, speak! what new mystery, what new trouble is this?" "Claire, Colliver is here in London, or was but a week ago."

Jasper claimed nothing for himself but attributed his long pastorate and whatever influence he had to the fact that he preached from only one book the Bible. When I was in college I heard a visitor draw a contrast between Cicero and Demosthenes. I am not sure that it is fair to Cicero but it brings out an important distinction.

"I found him tied to the bed in which he was lying." "How could they treat you so my dear boy!" said the mother, piteously. "May I ask your name?" This was, of course, addressed to Jasper. "My name is Jasper Kent." "Can you come out and stop at our house over night? We live about two miles distant. I want my husband to see you and thank you for bringing back our darling boy."

"Jasper, you don't know; you can't guess what dreadful things I said," cried poor overwhelmed Polly, clasping her hands tightly together at the mere thought of the words she had uttered. "Then she must have said dreadful things to you," said the boy. "She but, oh, Jasper! that doesn't make it any better for me," said Polly.
