The Proposed Separation;
nOW HE CHANGED HIS MIND.
Wo do not record tho fact because It
Is at all remarkable; unhappily it Is not.
James JAjrgan was tired of his wife.
Many other men are, I presume, in tho
same condition. Sometimes I his weari
ness is only a mood; sometimes it Is a
fixed, Irritating fact.
I do not know why, except that rest
lees natures always get tired of re
straints, this should be so. Mrs. Mor
gan was certainly as good a wife as Mr.
Morgan deserved better, perhaps, if
one were to measure deserts faithfully.
Mr. Morgan had not tho slightest idea
of the double, he was so carefully pre
parhg for her. Sho was Hot, had not
been, a happy woman by any means.
Tho maternal Instinct was largely de
veloped In her, but hcr's was a child
less home; and when she Invited tho
little ones of her brothers and sisters to
visit her, her husband loudly protested
called tho visit a "raid," and tho lit
tie visitors nuisances.
She had yielded; and because sho had
found that ho was pleased when young
ladles were invited, sho often had them,
though she did not ao greatly enjoy
their society. Mr. Morgan would have
said because sho was Jealous of his gal
lant attention to them. But this was
not wholly true. Sho was a truo and
loyal woman; sho had married her hus
band becauso she loved him, and knew
that for this, and because she was his
wife, she had tho supreme right to his
love aud all evidence of It. So long as
she had this, sho did not feel hurt or
jealous when he showed indications of
friendly regard to others.
Jealousy is one of tho meanest of
human emotions, and Is lowering both
to the persons who indulge in it nnd to
tho object of It. Mrs. Morgan had not,
perhaps, considered it In tins light; but.
she never allowed herself to indulge hi
it, not even when ths growing coldness
of her husband's manner at last con
vinced her that the rest of her lifo must
bo passed In tho most disconsolato of
She was a high-principled woman.
Sho tried to act always according to the
rule of right, and to order her life In all
things by tho preceptsof the Holy Scrip
tores. Reposing lu this faith, she be
lieved and hoped that, ordered by a
wiser being than she, all things would
work together for good till the darkling
hour passed and the light of hope
should begin to tlawn,
So moved ou the affairs of this dis
cordant household the dissatisfied
husband and tho unhappy wifo equally
misunderstanding the true causes wlhch
wero working ill to them.
And in the meantime, Mr. Morgan,
growing stronger In his mad resolve,
prepared for the result upon which he
It was a Sunday. Mrs. Morgan had
risen with a bad headache, and had not
been to church. In fact, she had spent
most of tho day with her face burled
Iu the pillow that was thoroughly wet
ted with her tears. The premonition
of a great sorrow was upon her; but It
was, if dreadful, vague and undefined.
Mr. Morgan, on the contrary, knew
exactly what ho was about to do. He
inteuded to Inform his wife that lie was
about to separate from her.
She got up at dinner time, nnd mado
herself ready lor the Jiueal. In her
cool, neat, summer dress, with her pale
iheek, that flushed with sudden color
at each sound of the beloved voice; tho
quick, startled expression In her eyes
that told her awakened apprehension,
made her more beautiful than she had
been oven In her girlhood. Mr. Mor
gan, looking at her as sho sat opposlto
him at the table, could not avoid notic
ing this, aud even acknowledged It to
He spoke more kindly to her than
had of late been his wont, and was sur
prised to see the quick flash of color to
her cheek and brow, and the springing
tears that answered him from her eyes.
.1 llttlo beating of his heart, a warm
er feeling tliero than ho had known ot
late, was the response; but It was un
heeded. When ho had decided to do
anylhlug he was not wont to chango
"Sho Is not well, and Is piobably
weary of her life, as I am of mine.'"
A sharp llttlo tremor, a sudden dart
of pain, might have made him question
tho truth of his words, but they were
"Mary," ho began, "I am thinking
of n change in our modo of life." Sho
started, flushed, and a deadly palor fol
lowed, but ho went on. "I havo bceu
thinking for somo tlmo that wo wero
very much unsultcd to each other. Of
courso I feel sure that wo shall always
be friends, but it seems useless to try
to live amicably ns husband and wifu.
Do you notngreo with me?"
"Oh, another sulky fit," ho comment
Ho went on: "i7ellovIng that you feel
ns I do, I havo maao some preparations
for tho event we contemplate "
"Not I oh, not II" came In broken
murmurs from those frozen lips.
He paused but not a word followed.
"I have caused deeds to bo prepared,
which will be ready to-morrow morn
ing, preliminary to tlio separation I ask
for. Your comfort lu the future Is well
provided for. I havo settled upon you a
handsome Income. I hopo you will bo
He paused, aud sprang startled to her
side as ho saw her slide slowly to the
floor. When ho reached her, sho lay
there cold and still like ono dead.
A pang tent the heart of the man
who hail caused this suffering. Ho rais
ed her in his arms and bore her away to
lifter a time, with proper restoia
tlves, she recovered; but she lay cold
and still, nnd silent. Observing that
she did not attempt to speak,and seemed
to wish to bo silent, he went away and
left her nlono in her misery. It was
cruel soothing, but perhaps the wisest
course he could havo pursued. Left
alone, bho hugged her grief to her
breast, and, at last, wearied our with
her struggle sobbed herself to sleep.
Llfo seemed very dark to her, and hope
Happily, her sleep was almost dream
less. Sho did not start, or tremble, or
cry out, only a grieved, patient, quiv
ering sob, from tlmo to time, escaped
Lalo at night, when Mr. Morgan
rotnrnod, eho waa sleepilng quietly,
and ho commented, ns ho stole awr.y,
upon her Insensibility and want of feel
ing. When they met In the morning no al
lusion was mado to the conversation of
the past evening.
"I will make no opposition," sho
thought. "Let him work his will,
Heaven forbid that, if ho has ceased to
love me, I should slnud between him
and freedom and happiness,"
So she resolved on tho perfect submis
sion which had becomo habitual with
her. But tho day was a very sad one.
At five o'clock her husband wascxpect-
ed back from tho city, to which ho went
dally to attend to his business
Sho tremulously awaited hlr.i, timid
and fearful, for their old relation seem
ed to have died out, aud sho knew not
how, all at once, to adopt herself to an
other. She waited, and the clock tick-
el. Tho hour struck and passed, al
most unheeded at first, nnd then with a
vague feeling of terror and alarm that
every moment doubled and Intensified
Time dragged slowly and painfully
along. In vain sho repeated to herself
that, feeling that this was no longer n
home, sho no longer a wife, ho was pur
posely prolonging his absence. Rut sho
could not cheat her fears. They grow
and grew, till at last, when, In the dark
ness, tho road by which ho was wont
to return became invisible, she threw
herself upon a sofa in an agony ot ter
ror. No one approached tho house,
Once In o while she stole to tho gate-
always vainly. The late summer dark
ness fell, and sho was still alone. The
clock pealed tho hours ten had Just
There was a sound of voices of foot
steps. Sho sprang to tho door, and as
it was flung open a sad procession stood
upon the threshold, and In its midst,
covered with mud and streaming blood,
they carried the body of Mr. Morgan.
There had been a terrlblo railway
accident many had been killed; a few,
like Mr. Morgan bruised, maimed,
still breathing, but insensible yet lived
on, bearing with them sad memorcs ot
Hours, days, weeks passed ; and he
lived still, hopelessly dependent upon
tho unwearied, soothing caro of the
woman he had condemned. N refer
ence had ever been made to tho Inten
tion he had announced, but it was al
ways in the memory of both.
Mr. Morgan no longer claimed her
attendance as a llicht, but thanked lier,'J
feebly, but gratefully, for tho kindness
ho had forfeited. Sho unconsciously
treated hlra with something which sho
could not prevent approaching tho cer
emonious deferenco duo to n stranger.
Both felt uncomfortable nnd unhappy,
beyond even tho sadness caused by his
This stato of things could not long
continue, though It was Impossible for
Mrs. Morgan to stop It. Pride kept Mr.
Morgan silent, yet ho was bearing a
heavy punishment the heavier that ho
well know himself solely to be blamed!
for It. Tho tlmo catno when her pale

thing of tho old affectionate confidence-,,

and pressed her soothing hand on his

She paused and burst into tears.
Then, arising, sho moved away to a

"Aud you say nothing of your own1
sufferings! You owe It all to mel You
aro an angel I You nover complain to
me, who havo given you such misery,,
and caused you such trouble!"
Ho essayed to lift towards her his
trembling bandaged arms. She sprang

"My own, true wife!" ho whl'pered,
at last. "Too good a thousand times
too good for mel"
"I shall never leavo you of my own
accord," sho said.
"I have been a demon or a fool," was
Mr. Morgan's estimate of himself; and
that was tho last sho ever heard ot tho
Ho toro up tho papers as soon as ho
could move about the house; and from
that day to this, tho man who was tired
of his wife has seemed almost foollshl y
proud of her.
The Spiritualists, too, must go Into
camp. Near Plympton, Mass., they
gather into tlio tented field and havowhat
they acalla"ireefraternal conference."
Wo have no doubt it is "freo enough."
Somo of the speakers relate experience
of dreams, visions, and ghostly inter
views. Others ventilate their views on
tho worthlessuess of all styles of relig
ion other thau their own. Ono orator
proclaimed ids belief that thi devil hlm
selt would some day bo converted; and
another, a woman, iuterosted her au
dience by telling them how when a
child sho used to dream that she crawl
ed into her mother's tea-kettlo and
pulled tho lid over her, to escape from
tho devil's persuit. If this was not
"jumping out of tho frying pan into
tho firo," certainly It seems tho next
thing to It. Some of tho experiences of
people cured from disenses aro romark
able. A 6lstor's tea-pot having explo
ded and scalded her badly, she claims
to have been cured by the agency of
an invisible and impalpablo ointment,,
which another bister made simply by
rubbing her empty hands together.
With such marvellous results of spiri
tualism, the only marvel Is that tho
mediums who interview ghosts cannot
give us a relliblo account of tho
whereabouts of the llttlo Ross boy who
was stolen from Philadelphia. Spiri
tualism has mado much fuss before tho
world, aud many pretences, but wo
wait in patlenco to see thofirst valuable
benefit It will accomplish for mankind.

"DIseases Isvery various," said Mrs.
Partington, as sho returned from a
street door conversation with Jfr. Bolds.
