LOUIE AND I.
If I had been the least bit pretty I
shouldn't have been surprised at it all ;
or if I had even been bright and witty';
but such a little simple simpleton as
I never in all my life had the least
expectation of lovers, or of any sort of
admiring glances ; and I never had
any. And sometimes mother used to
say she guessed it was just as well ; for
if she had to dress two girls out for
their pretty looks, as she did one. it
would have beggared her. Mother on
ly had a little money.just barely enough
to live on, and some of the principal
going every year ; but it wouldn't have
been in human nature, haying a daugh
ter as pretty as Louie, not to want her
to nave His best tiiui would act vtt
pencil Ocuutjr ; allU IOT mj l'^ 1 lT
I never grudged Louie a rose or a rib
bou. I couldn't have worn them ; for
I was far ioo proud to try to do what
nature hadn't, or to pretend I thought
such things became me ; and I liked
my print dresses and plain collars bet
ter for myself.
But when Louie was dressed in her
muslin 3 till she looked like one of the
old fashioned blush roses, so white
without and so delicately flushed with
in, her lovely yellow hair breaking out
in sunny curls all over her head, and
she all radiant, as you might say, with
her skin, her teeth, her great
blue, beaming eves—then I used to like
to look at her as much as any of her loy
ers did, look at her as I would at any
lovely picture ; and she always turned
from her gayest scene, the dear little
person, to give her sweetest smile to
So when'. Dennis began all at once to
come to our house, as if he had just
seen Louie for the first time in his life, I
was only delighted. For every one that
knew him loved and honored Dennis
Reed, who was the soul of all integrity;
and if he wasn't a beauty himself, lie
was a stalwart son of Saul, and had the
nicest little place in the region, a cot- !
tage up a lane, oyer looking the river,
and with a woods behind its orchard
and across the railway cut to keep off
the east wind, if the east wind could
eyer blow in that sunny nook, with a
j garden spot made and blooming in
every cranny of the rocks around it.
But my first thought was none of
that, only that I liked Dennis Reed so
much I liked to have him feel how
lovely Louie was ; I liked to have him
come to see her ; I liked to think her
as s;ife with such a sweet, strong soul
as I fancied his to be and last of all, I
thought how pleasant was the home he
had to givo her, and it pleased me to
place Louie there, in my thoughts, a
mong all the rocks and flowers, looking
out upon the river.
Not that it made any odds to Dennis 1
what I thought about it all. I doubt if
in those days he knew any more than
that I existed, going his happy way
with his head in the clouds, and eyes
and heart only for his love.
So he married her and took her away,
and a happier nest of singing birds
than that in the cottage among the
rocks and flowers could nowhere have
been found, unless it were in my own
heart, at the sight of the happiness
But then mother fell sick, and it
took all my time to care for her ; and I
couldn't go up to Louie's very often,
for I had every thing to do at home
and was tired out by nightfall and of
ten up half the night besides. Louie
couldD't very well come down often
and if she had come she wouldn't have

known what to do. Poor mother !
Once, I remember, she said to me, "I
don't know but its more satisfactory to
have one daughter plain than anything
else." And it made my heart bound.
And then I reproached myself for my
seltishness in caring to hear her say
that over Louie's head, as it were ; hut
I remember it long afterward, and
sometimes it used to give me a throb of
joy when everything was dreary and I
seemed to be alone In the world.
For mother died presently. And
then it turned out that she had been
living on her little property more than
we had dreamed, and Louie's outfit and
her long illness and hills had used up
her money. And when everything was
paid, there was only enough left for me
to hire one room as a sort of refuge
when I came home at night from work
ing at my trade,for 1 had quite a knack
at dressmaking. I did not put on
mourning ; for I was glad that moth
er was out of pain, and I was glad that
she was gone before she knew that all
the property was gone, and she, with
her proud spirit, would have had to be
dependent. But Louie did—and oh !
what a beauty she was, with her black
crapes falling around her, so waxy, fair
and rosy and tiansparent ! Of course
she didn't miss mother the way 1 did.
How could she, with Dennis waiting
on her every wish ? And she didn't
seem to want anybody hut Dennis,
either ; so I didn't see a great deal of
her, only when she had something new
to make up, or something old to alter
over ; and then she and Dennis weie
out, most of the time, strolling along
the rocks or planting a new flower gar
dener she was going to meet him com
ing from his work or running into the
next neighbor's across the pasture, and
I had almost nothing of her, except at
trying-on times. And I will confess
that trying-on times were trying times,
and no wonder. For if you had such a
perfect little figure as Louie had, you
would want your dress to look as if you
had been melted and poured into it,
too. I used to wonder at Louie then,
a little somet'me ; not for not sitting
at home sewing and helping me in the
work, because you might as well have

IlUli i u • • — "IB" •***•' * '
And I used to bo atraid that if I were
Dennis, and there were boles in my
socks, and half the buttons oil my
clothes, and my coat and hat never
brushed, and I came home and found
nothing for dinner—not even the cloth
laid—and my wife off enjoying herself ,
somewhere else, and the dust every
where so that I could write my name,
that I shouldn't feel recompensed for
all that by having my wife stroll round
hanging on my arm, looking as pretty
as a new blown rose. And yet, al
though the house must often have been
thoroughly uncomfortable to Dennis,he
never gave a sign that it was not Para
dise itself ; and I came to the conclu
sion that he didn't really miss those
other things, and was satisfied with
what he had.
I used to go up in the Eden pome- i
times, without being sent for, and i
mend up everything, and put the whole
house straight ; but I couldn't go so ,
very often, on account of my work ;
and, besides, I had a sensation of in
truding where two people wanted but
But at last the babies came ; and
then I had to go. And Louie was wild
with delight, and insisted on having
them laid on the pillow close to her j
cheek, and talked and laughed and
cooed and cried to them with such glit
tering eyes and dazzling color in her
face, and said it was all she wanted,
even if she were in Heaven to morrow!
"But your husband, Louie !" I ex
"Oh ! husbands are all very well."
she said. "But I haven't been such an
! awfully good wife. You'd have made
Dennis a great deal better wife, dear,
for the matter of that. But my little
; sons ! Oh ! I know I could be a good
j She was in Ileaven to-morrow, the
dear little innocent soul, and one of the
| babies went with her.
j I was glad that the little baby went
too. For I remember that she had
said then she would have all she want
ed ; because it troubled me to think
that, for all his grief to-day, Dennis
wouldn't be like any other man in the
world, if he didn't marry to-morrow ;
and the other wife would haye the long
life with him, and become dearer and
dearer, and Louie would fade into just
a beautiful dream ; and, when the next
life came, it would be the dear wife of
the long continuing time that would be
all alone if it wasn't for the baby, and
. she had said that the baby was enough.
Of course all this was only a sort of
I flash through my consciousness, not
i any deliberate thought. Nobody could
; have thought about anything of the
> kind who saw Dennis' grief. He was
i all beside himself. I don't like to tell
i you what he said and did ; 1 was half

afraid sometimes that a thunderbolt
would fall and destroy him ; and then
again I was afiaid that he would destroy
himself. I don't know how we ever
contiiyed to get him to let Louie he
placed in her casket, and I thought lie
would jump into the very grave itself.
But at last that agonizing time, every
moment of which knows how to give a
fresh stab, was over, and the worse
time came of tho absence and silence,
and wild, vain, Litter longing. And
Dennis couM'nt look at the baby.
"Take it away 1" he said. "It killed
her 1" So I look him into my own
room, and cuddled hi in close to my
heart every night, and 6very nighc, and
every morning he awoke me with his
laughing and gurgling and crowing,
playing with the shadows of the dan
cing leaves across the bed and he had
Louie's yellow hair and rosy cheek and
perfect features, her great, longing
blue eyes and Dennis' black eyebrows ;
and every day he grew dearer and dear
er, soul more inexpressibly dear, and I
Baid to myself that, much as I missed
poor Louie, here had been made up to
me all I had failed of in my life ; for
this cnild was to take the place to me
of mother and sister and husband and
child altogether. And the dearer he
grew, the more angry I became with
Dennis for his indifference ; and one
day, when the boy was about four
months old, I said to Dennis :
"I think you had better let old Nan
cy come in again and do your chores,
the way she used to do, and I will go
away and take the baby "
"Take the baby ?"
"Certainly," I said. "You can't
bear the sight of him, aut! I love him.
And then if you ever marry again"
"I shall never marry again," he said,
the gloom settling in his eyes.
"I don't believe you will I" l ex
claimed. "I don't believe there's the
woman living who will ever take such
an unnatural, wicked father for her
husband ! Louie's own child, too, and
tne very image of her. I wonder what
she'd think of you !" And I snatched
the baby up out of the cradle, and ran
from the room, lesi I should break out i
crying before his face.
The next afternoon when Dennis

clothes, and came down to where 1
stood in the side door with the baby in
my arms,look ing at the sunset. And he
stooned to take the child; and the little
darling turned, with a low, frightened
cry, and hid his face in my neck. And
then, all at once the tears that I had
not seen Dennis cry iu all this time,
gushed out,and he put his arms around
the child, who began to scream with
terror, and as I half turned and main
tained my own hold, he took him for
cibly away from me. "Let go !'' he
said, in his low half smothered tone.
"He's my child 1"
"I supppose he is !" I cried. "By
some wicked form of 1 aw, the cruel law
that men made for men. But you
don't deserve him. You helped him to
life, but I should like to know how
much life lie would have now, if it had
rested with you V"
I never was so angry. I thought I
would take my things and co away
that moment. But how could I leave
the baby ? His little screams were
torturing me then. I sat down on the
doorstone and flung my apron over my
head, and put my thumbs in my ears,
and wished the baby and I were dead
along with Louie.
Perhaps, it was an hour afterward
when I looked up, and there was Den
his coming through the orchard with
the baby, and the boy was crowing and
jumping and catching at the bending
boughs, and catching at his father's
great mustache, and rubbing bis little
wet lips all oyer Dennis' face, chirrup
ing and joyous ; and I couldn't help it,
L ran to meet them.
"You s*e," sai l Dennis, as he let me
have him back, "blood is thicker than
water, after all."
Oh I what a long journey I felt as if
that baby had been on as I took him
and could hardly haye done kissing
"Come," said Dennis, laughing,
"leave something of liini for me."
It was the first time he had laughed
since thechild was born. And the darling
had gone a long journey—a journey in
to the infinite depths of a father's
Well, after that, Dennis couldn't get
home early enough in the afternoon,
and it seemed as if he hated to go away
in the morning, and Sundays ho had
the baby in his arms from morning till
night. And in the evening when I sat
sewing on the little clothes, he would
come and sit opposite, or where he
could see how the work went on ; and
he brought home all sorts of little im
possible toys, and he talked and sang
to him, and walked with him ; and the
baby began to look out for his coming
as much as I did. And all that, of
course helped me a good deal in my
work about the house, for I kept every-
thing as line and orderly as a honey
comb ; only, with the baby to tend and
gee to, I sometimes had to sit up nights
I to do it.
"I shall call him Louis,for his moth
er," said Dennis, one night.
"Do you think you can bear it ?" I
"To hear him called Louis V Yes.
lie is Louie over again," said Dennis.
And I couldn't tell you how pleasant
life grew to be as we watched the child
grow, unfolding like a rose. There
was absolutely a sort of rivalry between
us presently as to who should discover
his first tooth. When he took his first
step, it was between Dennis' arms and
mine,as we both sat on the floor. And
when he spoke his first word, how we
listened to learn if it were Dennis'
name or mine. The day wasn't long
enough to watch his dear loveliness in.
And I think Dennis was envious ot me
for having him nights ; but he could
not help that.
I never shall forget, though, the
night the baby had the croup, and we
both hung over him. fearing every
breath would lie the last ; and, when
ease came, how wo both broke down
and cried together ; and as we looked
out the window and saw the first flush
of dawn, and the shining moon and
the morning star glittering out of it
with ineffable brightness.
So time went on ; and 1 thought
then it would not he easy to see how we
could he tiappier ; for even the memory
of Louie was softened into something
that was hardly a grief to us in our
love of her hoy, though sometimes I
used to wonder if the little fellow that
went with her was as sweet as the one
that staid with us.
Hut when the dear child was about 3
years old. there came a snake into E
den. A snake ? A whole nest of
them ! It seemed as if every girl in
the whole village had just found out
what a rare and charming person I
was, and how pleasant it was late after
noons up where I lived, and how nice
it was to run up evenings to see me.
And sometimes Dennis would have to
go home with the.n ; and sometimes he
wouldn't, hut just went out the other
way, and never came home till they'd
I couldn't say why it worried me—l '■
only knew it did. And I used to take
the hoy and go off by myself and cry.!
For ot course, sooner or later, Dennis
would marry some one of those terrible
girls; he couldn't help himself ; it
would come about after a while as nat
urally as water runs dowu hill.
And then there would be a stepmoth
er for my hoy and Ileaven only knew
what would bpcome of him. And what
would become of me ?
And by this I gave on t completely.
I should see Dennis no more. No
more of that dear voice and presence,
and cheery way of his. And all at
once it came over me, in a flash of hor
ror and shame, what was the matter
with me ; and then I felt that happen
what would, I really must go away.
Ilut I couldn't go and leave the boy ;
and there I was. And I grew pale and
could eat nothing, and was stiller and
stiller every day. I could as soon have ,
talked Hebrew as liaye smiled.
But one day I had the little fellow
asleep in his morning nap, which he
had not quite outgrown, although it
was getting to he short and fitful ; and,
thinking that Dennis was there to see,
or knowing he was, and thinking noth
ing, I went out by myself, down the
field by the railroad cut ; for there was
an app'e tree there where I gathered
the windfalls, and I liked, too, to sit on
the bank and see the train dash in the
cut. 1 had my apron full of apples,and
as I came back, I stood loitering a mo
ment or so on the steep bank, bearing
a train coming, and liked all the rush
and roar and rattle that seemed to
snatch me out of myself, as if it told of
away to somewhere, some distant re
gion where my trouble might be forgot
ten; and all at once another sound from
that of the approaching train caught
my ear, a glad, gaj shouting and cry
ing. I turned and looked to the right
and left, a little confused, for it was
the child's voice. And, turning back
suddenly, I saw him ; and there, at the
foot of the bank, in the very centre of'
the railway track stood the little fellow,
who had crept from his bed and ran
after me, and been beguiled down the
slope by some blossoms that lie saw
there—there, in the centre of the track
he stood, waying his little hands and
shouting to the coming train. There
was not a half minute time, it seemed ;
but in less time I was down there, and
was just grasping the child when my
foot slipped, and I fell with him in my
arms, and the thunder was in my ears
and the hot breath in my face, and I
knew that was the end.
No ; it was only the beginning of the
end. When I knew anything more I
was lying on the bank in Dennis's anus;
| for he had come bounding after the boy,
I and had snatched us both out of dan
ger as the engine, like a wild dragon,

and he was holding me as it' he would
never let me go.
And he never has let me go. "Oh I"
he cried, "I found out in that second
what life would be to me without you,
dear; something I couldn't bear a day."
And 1 only clung to him, too ashamed
to let him see my face, too tired and
weak to lift it. And so it is I that am
the second wife, and the boy's mother.
And I suppose everybody was surpris
ed; hut nobody, as 1 told you, was half
as much surprised as I.—HARRIET

Peculiarities of a Woman Shown in
Her Expense Aooounts.
It is a touching sight to see a wo
man begin to make up her expenses,
having firmly resolved to put down
every cent she spent, so as to find out
how to economize and find out where
all the money goes. Procuring a
small book, she makes a due entry,
and on Monday after the first Satur
day in which her hukband brings
home his pay she carefully tears the
margin of a newspaper and with a
blunt pencil strikes a trial balance
something in this way.- John brought
me home $48.49 and $1.43 I had is
$49.93 and $1.09 I lent Mrs. Dixon is
$50.93, but hold on, I ought not to
enter that, because when she returns
it it'll go down. That was $49 93,
and what have I done with that ?
Then she puts down the figures, leav
ing out the items to save time—a pro
cess that enables her to leave out the
most of the items to where a round
sum is involved, on the supposition
that they have already been put
down. As this : Six dollars and four
teen cents for meat, and 10 cents for
celery, and 10 cents on the new street
car line, and a bad five cent piece 1
got in exchange, and $2.81 I paid the
milkman—who owes me 19 cents—
that's $3.00, and 15 cents at church,
and tLe groceries—they were either
$15.60 or $1G.50 I forget which, but
I guess it must have been $15.60 for
him a dime he would give me haifa
dollar which would make even change
and I couldn't, because the smallest I
had was a quarter—and $2.75 for
mending Kate's shoes, which is the
last money that shoemaker ever gets
from me, and 10 cents for celery—no,
I did put that down. Finally she
sums up her trial balance sheet, and
finds that it loots up $64.28, which is
about sls more than she had original
ly. She goes over the list several
times and checks it carefully, but all
the items are correct, and she is just
about iu despair when her good angel
hints that there may be a possible
mistake in addition. Acting upon
the suggestion she foots up the col
umn and fiuds that the total is $44.28
and that according to the principles
of the arithmetic she ought to have
$5.65. Then she counts her cash sev
eral times, the result varying from
$1.40 up to $1.97, but then she hap
pily discovers that she has been mis
taking a £2 gold piece for a cent, and
remembers that she gave the baby a
trade dollar to cut its gums with. On
the whole she has come within 86
cents cf a balance, and that, she says,
is close enough, and she enters in one
line of her account book .♦ "Dr.—By
household expenses," so much ; and is
very happy till she remembers, ju3t
before going to bed,that she has omit
ted $2.75 for her husband's hat.
A Ghastly Firepl aoe.
A Southside physician has capped
the climax of suggestions. He is
something of an artist in modeling in
clay, and after he got his office sup
plied with natural gas he made a cast
of a skull. The thing is horribly nat
ural, even to the sutures across the
skull,and one front tooth knocked out.
This is set up in the grate in such a
way that the bluish crimson flames of
the turning gas steal through the
eyes and nostrils and flicker playfully
around the ghastly jaws. Little jet 3
of flame flash through between the
sunken jaws and lighten up the bony
countenance, heated to a white-red
heat in a manner horribly suggestive
of other fires, which are said to burn,
but not consume.

AN EXCITING RIDE.
A Doctor's Escape from What Ha
Thinks Was an Attempt to
SLATINGTON, Pa., Feb. 3.— Last
Monday night Dr. Joseph P. Eogle
man, au ex-member of the legislature
from Northampton county, who lives
at Cherryville, five miles from here,
went to Walnutport to see a patient.
He started home at a late hour, and
The doctor stopped his horse, and the
person was soon sitting in the carriage
beside him. In a short time the doctor
discovered that bis companion was a
man in female attire. In order to a
void suspicion the doctor chatted pleas
antly with the man, and dunng the
conversation suddenly dropped h!a
whip on the road. "I have just lost
my whip," said the doctor. "Wont
you please get it ? My horse is at
times unmanageable, and I am afraid
to leaye the carriage." Without SUB-.
pecting the trick the man alighted to
get the whip, at the same time saying :
"Wait for me ; don't driye off." Once
out of the clutches of the unknown the
doctor soon bad the horse running at
full speed and the man far in the rear.
Just as the doctor was about to con
gratulate himself on his escape he,found
a lady's muff on the seat containing a
loaded six-shooter, and a few minutes
later met two more persons in female
attire,both of whom gazed into fcis car
riage as he approached them. The par
ties separated-as he neared them, each
taking a position on the sides of the
