THE CHBOMOMTH, BT H. B 1
Dear little Janet !And you want me
*to tell her story ? Why, she would, say
there was no story to tell.
I say "dear little Janet!” For all that,
she is a woman grown now; and lh& last
lime I saw her there was a grea; bonne
log Donald in her lap. For a’tbat and
for a’lbat, she will alwaysbe “filt|e-41anet M
tome. ■ I
There never was a child who shewed no
felly what the woman was. to prove.
The first time I saw her was one day
when her father bad fallen In with me on
a cross road in the Fiscataqnisl yafley ;
that is far away, forty miles above" Ban
gor in Maine. He was on his bay-cart;
I was sitting on a log. We nodded at
each other; and he, seeing my knapsack
and stick, asked if I would not mount
with him, which t did; and so, before
long we came np to bis cheerful, rambling
great shingle palace of a house, j where I
h&Talready promised to pass the night
with him. We brought up in Ifront of
the barn, from which we had already
beard shouts of “Coop! Coop!” Who
should appear at a little three j cornered
window in the gable but little . Janet,
flaxen curls flying wild about her head.
“Hurrah 1” sai£ Miss Janet “Hurrah!”
said her father; “jump; birdie !” land, be
fore poor cockney, I, well understood the
orde% they both rolled over and over
in the hay. I have seen many a jump
into hay carts,— nay, have made my
share; but I never saw snch a flight as
that. And even then it was hot the dis
tance most surprising; It
was the absolute promptness, so perfectly
-Hera not to aake reply.
Hers not to question why."
•He said “jump!” and she jumped, not
because she calculated the height, or bad
done 4t before, bat because be told her to,
and she loved and trusted him. That
was little Janet all over. L
Now, steadiness like that and readiness
like that breed steadiness and readiness.
It seems queer to me that I had never
seed Janet before, I have seen her so much
and so often since, j bad not seen her
long, before 1 found that I trusted her as
implicitly as she did me; indeed thfere
was not a man who worked on the farm
who had not absolute confidence in the
child, or was not sure of her promptness,
punctuality, and affection. Nor was it
men and women alone who felt so. The
horses and the cows—nay, the pigs and
the hens—all knew her cheerful voice
and her ready attendance and her steady
hand. Jolham said she could collar and
harness that cross brute “Mad March;”
that she would, climb into the manger
and put the wretch’s collar on, and put
the bit in bis mouth, because she was
such a lady. I know she could do it; and
of course Mad March let her do it, for he
could have eaten her, had he been carni
vorous, and hardly know he had tasted
food. But it was not because she wa§ a
lady, but because her easy confidence,
as I say, created the same confidence in
Do you remember Miss Yonge’s pretty
story of Miss Keble! The little wrens
trusted her so. entirely that they came to
pick the red berries which were printed
on her muslin dress; and, when /they
found they could not get any of them off,
they flew down and crept up under the
skirt, thinking they should get at the
berries on the other side. I have Nseen
, the little birds do that with Janet—not
such wrens as those because there are
none in Maine, but some little witches
not so much bigger than an English wren,
they knew Janet, even if she did not
know their name, nor they hers.
' The pretty picture Mr. Billings made
of her just represents both sides. I mean
she trusted the birds, and the birds trust
ed her. In the picture you see just how
it was. This little whistler has fascinat
ed him. He knows she will not "hurt
him; and it almost seems as if she were
listening to him, and learning from him,
as infthe “Arabian Nights” and in the
German fairy tales, the girls of the real
blue blood understand the language of
caterpillar, cricket, grasshopper, toad,
frog, weasel, pussy cat, tom tit, ostrich,
came leopard, and all other vertebrates or
invertebrates. Dear little Janet, she is as
good a fairy as the best of them!
After the haymow flight, when she was
as big a girl as Mr. Billings has - made
her, We had many a tramp together np
brook, through, moose-wood and over
mountain. I have seen her pass from
rock to rock, on one of the ridges of
Staabo, with no thought of taking a
staff, with no kind of uneasiness, "though
she was just on the sheer edge of the prec
ipice which you remember perhaps on the
southern face of Ktaahn. I have seen it
fifty miles away. Yes, and I have seen
the child’s father fell a pine tree a hun
dred and fifty years old, that we might
walk dry-shod across the stream; and the
moment it fell little Janet was the first to
swing herself upon the trunk* to run
across as lightly as one of her own little
birds wbuld, and in ten seconds was
beconing and waving her hands from the
rocks on the other shore. We could not
hear a word she said for the rash of the
rapids in the gorge below. Her father,
who worships her,—as well he may—used
to tell a story of an experience of theirs
io.a sort of outlaying station he had, half
shanty and half lumber camp, just on the
edge of the woods. Mrs. Trevor had gone
up with him and Janet and the children ;
and they were to have a sort of picnc
frolic for three or four days. But one of
the little boys was not well; so; their
mother bad taken them all home, leaving
Janet to cook for her father, who had
something in band. Poor fellow! in the
middle of the second morning, as be pried
up a heavy sill from i|s resting place, the
ground gave way under him, bis bar slipp
ed, and he-and the tog rolled down to
gether in the, hole he had"made,—poor
Trevor underneath, and his leg broken
just above the ankle. was with
him in two seconds; hot she could not
free him, nfir could five others like her.
“She did not wait long,” he said. Off she
went like 'a bird, down to McMnrtrie’s
pasture, a mile and a half down the inter*,
vale. Over the root-fence, into the pas*
ture, and then, threading through the
high ferns, she began to call "Dan! Dan!
Dan!” Now, Dan was ■» vicious old
stallion whom McMnrtrie chose to keep
ranging in his pasture and in the woods.
When McMurtrie or any of his men want
ed Dan j which was perhaps four times in
a summer, it took a peck °f salt, and lur.
ings and chasings, lariats and lassos in.
deecribable, to wod him end win. him.
And now this child—for Janet was still
not woman grown—*only called Dan two
or three times, and down ihrribgh the un
derbrush camethe great hulking creature,
glowering at her; and as she slowly walk
ed np to him With a handful of raspber
ries, he did not turn away; and then and
there he stood and she. stood—she on a
rough bowlder, he nibbling at the fruit!
she rubbing his head between the ears, he
whinnying with satisfaction that he bad
company. And at last when Janet
thought the entente eordiale was attained
she cooly put her little green scarf
through his mouth, behind his great
teeth, and, before he knew it, she had
flung herself on his back, and was away .
They were not long making the six miles
to the village. As she came in by the
saw mil), she met Mr. Kittredge. She
told him her story; and in three minutes
be and four or five other men were in a
lumber-wagon on their way to the rescue.
Kittredge told me this himself. They
asked the girl if she would not go with
them; bat Janet said no; somebody must
take Dan back to the pasture, and so she
went ahead of the party. Poor Trevor
was released in less than two hours from
the time he fell.
But you want to know how Wildair
first met him. It is John Wildair remem
ber—not Taylor; Taylor is in Australia.
John is Taylor’s brother. That is just
the way with you young people. All
you care about is love making and the
wedding. Now,’ I might entertain you
for an hour with pleasant accounts of
how the Trevors came Into the Piscata
quis valley, and how I came to be there,
and of the origin of the Trevor family;
and you would ship it all to see how the
story turned out, and who married them.
Only Helen, of all of you, would read
about the early history of Cornwall; and
she would do it, not because she wanted
to know, but from love of me.
Well, John Wildair first saw Janet on
board a Kennebec steamer, literally on
board, if you will rightly consider the
derivation of that term. John Wildair
was sitting on the deck, at Bath, watch
ing as the passengers came on board.
And two men brought an old lady, in a
chair, down the wharf and upon the
deck; and Janet came with her, and
wrapped her up warm, and coddled her ,
and made her feel quite at home. Then
the old lady wished she had some of the
oranges which aGerman woman was sell
ing on the wharf; and Janet ran ashore
to buy them. While the German fiddled
about the change, the boat cast off, the
captain’s bell struck, and they had fairly
polled the gangway in, when Janet caiqe
running back with her fruit.
Did she stop ? Not she!
“Please run it on again,” she said : and
the wharf hands obeyed her, just as Dan
obeyed her in the pasture. And the lit
tle bird, as I called her before, ran right
over the board, the boat moving the end
along steadily as she did so, and sprang
upon the deck, as perfectly unconscious
as if she had been walking the floor. Years
after John Wildair tried to make her
remember it; but she did not remember
it at all; said, indeed, there was nothing
to remember. She said there was no dan
ger, and consequently no courage ; that
the plank would remain on the boat folly
five seconds, add the slowest women in
Christendom could have crossed in two.
Still John Wildair wondered when he
saw her do it; and, os I believe, admired
her then and there, that she did not
spend ten seconds first in inquiries of the
wharf men whether or no it would be
safe to cross the gangway.
But John was destined te see her again
far, far away.
Tom Trevor went to the war In the
forty-seventh Maine Rifles. Tom was the
wild cat, black-haired brother that dared
everything, and went everywhere. And
after that horrid carnage at Bell’s Ford,
when the lists of the Forty seventh were
printed. Tom’s name was among the miss
ing. Dead perhaps! Janet said, “No,
not dead.” She was sure he was not
dead. If be had been shot, some man
Would have seen him fall, and would have
told it, for they all liked Tom. No;
Janet, with all her own clear sightedness,
which is what Mr. Billings and I call
“Confidence,” pronounced that he was
in a rebel prison. Her father would not
hear of it; for, as I said, he worshipped
Janet. But, because people are fain to
obey those whom they worship,-he had
to do as Janet bade him before be knew
i it; and in fewer days than it has taken
me to teU'this story, aswessy wliea we
write la the Dime Series; Janet was In'
Washington) besieging Knapp rat the San -
Itary, and Stanton in his den, and Gen.
Townsend In his, for some sort pf P«ss
that would carry her across the lines.
Little good did she get of that. Of course
there Was no pus for her of any kind or
sort; and they all told'heir, with great
tenderness, that she would have done
much better to stay at home.
Bnt Janet did hot go home, for all that.
By this time they knew, and she knew,
that Tom Trevor was In Richmond, in
Hospital No. 21, where were our wounds
ed prisoners. Whether be was there be
cause he was sick, or because he was
wounded, she did hot know, nor Uould
anybody learn; but he was there. What
Janet did was to go up to Harper’s Ferry.
Then she turned up at Staunton and Lex
ington and one fine day, appeared in
Lynchburg, quite comfortably within
the rebel territory, very seedy andspeak
mg very bad English and very good
French. She called on ail the ministers
in Lynchburg ; she waited till she could
be sure they I would not want her- as a
teacher in the Academy. Meanwhile she
knit stockings like fury for the wounded ;
and in the hospital there was not a vol
unteer nurse as ready and: careful as
Janet, nor so Universal a favorite as she.
And so it happened that when, in the
spring of ’64, Butler struck in so sudden
ly at Bermuda Hundred, and fought the
battle of the fog ; and when the wounded
began to ho sent to the rear from the Wil
derness and Spottsylvania; when Dr.
Macgregor and Mr. Harris went down to
Richmond with fresh spring vegetables
for the Wounded, Milie. Lacretelle, whom
you and I know better as Janet,'went
with them, with express charges to look
after certain wounded of the Twenty
ninth Virginia. Nobody could go in
without Dr. Macgregor’s pass; bnt he
would take Milie. Lacretelle anywhere.
That was the way it happened that
Janet, after she had carried to Adam Cle
ment the stockings bis mother bad sent,
and to Jesse Barton the headrest Mary
sent, and the boxes of home baked cake
to Jo. Stratton and Walt Victor, and the
letters to twenty others, whom she found'
in one hospital and another, appointed
herself to duty one day at Hospital No.
21, with a note from Dr. Macgregor to
our good friend, Dr. Sample, who was in
charge there. The note said that she was
a perfect nurse, and could speak French
and German well. Sample had little to
do with French or with German , but he .
bad no surplus of perfect nurses. And
so it was, that, one morning Tom
Trevor was waiting for his breakfast of
mush and molasses, it was brought to him,.
not by the nice red tnrbaned black wo
man who brought it Monday, but by a
tioy little white woman hi the full dress
of a sister of charity. Tom hopped a foot
off from his bed when the sister of chari
ty turned round on him; but the sister
of charity magnetized Tom also, so that
his “Janet!” died unspoken- But from
that moment, I can tell you, Tom began
to get well:
So did John Wildair, who lay in the
next bed ; and so.did all the Smiths and
the Joneses and the rest, with whom this
story has nothing to do. Never was there
such a sunshiny place as that ward of No.
21, till they were all packed off, and sent
hack Into the country.
And then! Why, by that time, Milie.
Lacretelle had her way as perfectly as,any
red tapist of them all. Not' Dr. Sample
nor Dr. Macgregor could draw up requi
sitions with more formality, insist on pre
cedent more precisely, or do as he chose
more certainly, than could the French
nurse. She never asked for anything
that was not right; and, when she asked
for anything, she asked as if she were
certain it was to be granted. So the end
was, that it always was granted. Tom
Trevor was assigned to Lynchburg.
Dear me 1 how John Wildair would have
given his hand had he dared asked her to
assign him to Lynchburg. And the only
reason he did not dare was his fear that
she would find out, by his asking, ho* it
was a matter of life and death for him to
go there. Queer human: nature ! He
hoped she knew she was all in all to him ;
and yet that was the one thing be did
not tell her, and was so afraid she would
find out. Why was he afraid? Why?
Oh I it is the old, old stozy. What if she
did find out, and then moved Tom into
ward A, and let Rebecca come into ward
6. in her place, whit would John Wil
dair do then, poor thing ? So John Wil
dair did not .say ojpe word ; and so he was
assigned to Low fehurg, when they were
assigned to Lynchburg. „
Die of a broken heart ? Not.a bit of i f .
He did not die at all; he got* well. He
bribed a black brother to let him out of a
window ; and he stole a horse, and rode 1
him thirty miles before day light. Then he
slept al) day hi a barn; then he stole an
other horse, and then another; and so be
turned op at Harper’s Ferry; and iso he
was in Battery Seven in front of Peters
burg ; and aohe marched under Ord to
Appomattox Court House ; and so, when
Janet brought poor Tom, still limping
down to out lines, and. bunted, np the
Forty-seventh Maine, John Wildair was
in command, because he ranked every of
ficer left in the field; And did not John
Wildair tell her then how glad be was to
see her !
Yea. And she was glad to see him!
And John had her and Tom sept back to
the field hospital in ao bid carryall, and
in the-evening came down to see how
Tom had borne the journey. And j&hbr
that he took Janet but to see tbe/Sunsct
behind the river ; and they walked and
they walked, and. John told her how des
olate all life had been to him since she
and Tom went to Lynchburg, and begged
her, by the love .he bore her, never to
leave him again, without saying be might
come after her.
■ I don’t know what he said to her; bnt
I know, that, after the For ly-seventh- was
paid off; I married them both, and that
