Mr. Lee suddenly started up. "This is not doing my business," he exclaimed. "If I don't look out sharp, I shall miss an appointment. Run, Minnie, to the barn, and tell John to put the black mare into the buggy as quickly as possible."

Before he had put on his boots, she came back, out of breath, calling out,--
