Yocomb and the little girls came to the door and asked if there was room for a crowd. Soon after Mrs. Yocomb appeared, with her comely face ruddy from exercise.

"Bury I wi' wots in thur, and take care o' the rest on't. Thee's want it bad enough afore th' spring comes." Madge replaced the stocking without examining it. She was heavy at heart. Before morning her mother was dead. Madge went back to her own cottage, carrying with her just a sovereign in sixpences and fourpenny-bits. She sat down and wept. No one came near her.

"May be so," replied Don Quixote; "but to come to the point, what does Teresa say?" "Teresa says," replied Sancho, "that I should make sure with your worship, and 'let papers speak and beards be still, for 'he who binds does not wrangle, since one 'take' is better than two 'I'll give thee's; and I say a woman's advice is no great thing, and he who won't take it is a fool."

"I don't care for myself, I'm not afraid of work, but thee's not able to do what thee does now, mother. If I have outside things to look after, how can I help thee as I should? And the boys are about as much dependence as a flock of barn swallows!" "Don't thee fret about me, dear; the way will open. Thy father has thought and planned for us. Have patience while I tell thee.

We won't get half through to-day, but that's no reason for thy leaving us. We are all one family under this roof, thank God, and I'm going to thank Him to-day in good old style and no make-believe;" and he kept her hand as she sat down by him.

"I wouldn't take him," Mary answered "He's perhaps the only friend the poor old fellow has got in the world.

The hat was not there; but Hope's eyes were on his, and there were a hundred Quaker hats or Cardinals' hats in them. He reached out quickly and caught Hope's hand as it undid the strings of her grey bonnet. "Will thee be mad, Hope?" "All the world's mad but thee and me, David, and thee's a bit mad," she answered in the tongue of Framley.

"You know what the old Quaker said to his wife: 'All the world's queer, dear, except thee and me and thee's a little queer!" The angry young man would have liked to get a little more light on the question, but Chairman Presson was ready for them and hustled them into the carriage.
