Up this world, sad down this world,
And over this world, and through,
Though drifted about,
And tossed without,
Why, "paddle your own canoe."
What though the.sky is heavy with clouds,
Or shining a field of blue,
If the bleak wind blows,
Or the sunshine glows,
Still, " paddle your own canoe."
What if breakers rise up ahead,
With dark waves rushing through,
More steadily try,
With steadfast eye,
To "paddle your own canoe."
If a hurricane rise in the midnight skies,
And the stars are lost to view,
Guide safely along,
With smile and song,
And "paddle your own canoe."
Up this world, and down this world,
Over this world, and through,
Though weary and worn,
Bereft, forlorn,
Still "paddle your own canoe."
Never give up when trials come—
Never grow sad and blue;
Never sit down
With a tear or frown,
But " paddle your own canoe."
There are daisies springing along the shores,
Blooming and sweet for you;
There are rose-hued dyes
In the autumn skies—
Then "paddle your own canoe."
" There, Tina!"
Mr. Bruce Medway triumphantly held
up two semi-circles of silver in the air, so
that they might be sure to make sufficient
impression on Ernestine Cady's blue eyes,
and smiled with the exultant satisfaction
one who feels that he has accomplished his
He was a bright; earnest-looking young
fellow, with gray-brown eyes and asquare
firm mouth not handsome, but very
manly; and as he sat there on the green
wood land bank, with the hair thrown
back from his broad forehead, and the sun
shine mirrored in his eyes, you felt instinc
tively that he was one who would make his
way in the world, no matter what obsta
cles might intervene.
Ernestine Cady stood leaning against
the guarded, mossy trunk of an immense
chestnut-tree with her little feet buried in
,plumes of nodding, fragrant ferns—rural
picture in blue muslin and fluttering azure
ribbons. She was very pretty, with the
delicate bloom and freshness of a flower—
a flower that winds and frosts have never
" Didn't I tell you I should do it, Tina?"
Ernestine took up the little file that lay
on the bank.
"I thought it an impossible task with
such an implement as that!"
"Nothing is impossible," returned
Bruce, sententiously, as he passed a bit of
narrow blue ribbon through a hole in the
broken piece of silver. "Will you let me
tie it round your neck, Tina?"
"What for?" But she stooped her
'pretty head as she spoke, and let him tic
the knot beneath, a cataract of pale gold
`• And I shall wear the other next to my
heart. They are amulets. Tina--charms,

piece carries my allegiance with it. Tina,

" lirncell, .
“Such things hare happened, dearest;
but,nevertheless, in anyevent, this broken
coin shall be'a token and 'a summons to
me, wherever, I may be—whatever Fate
may have in store. Don't look so grave,
my little blue-bird. Is it so very wrong to
mingle a bit of romance in our every-day
life? Where are your flowers? It is time
we were returning.”
Through the green shifting shadows of
the woods, with bloodred streams of sun
set light rippling along at their feat, and
delicious odors of moss and fern • and hid
den flowers rising up dround, the two
lovers walked homeward. Bruce Medway
never forgot:the brightness of 'that drowsy
August afternoon.

lie stepped forward, with aglad, flush
ed fate , and then the chill whiteness of
despair blanched every feature, as the
bright-eyed little squirrel, whose tiny
tread over leaves and acorn-cups had de
ceived him, glided swiftly across the belt
of sunshine into emerald shadow. Bruce
Medway stood an instant with his brow
centracted and his arms foded on his
breast.: WIN he bidding farewell to the
suminer that was past?
And the shriek of the coming tra insound
ed through• the blue purity of the air, anti
the last, littlelaint sparkle of hope in the
lover's breast died out.
Tina had not come—Tina had forgotten
him. Well, so-let it bet •
And what was Tina Cady doing in the
fresh morning brightney?
She Was very rosy and 'reedy in her
trim calico dress, with pink ribbons at
her throat, and a pink verbena hanging
low in her golden coils of hair—very pic
turesque as she reached up her hand to
break off a spray of spicy honey-suckle.
"I wonder if Mr. Bruce Medway_ has
come to his senses yet," thought Tina,
with a toss of her head. " I shan't meas
ure my nations by the rule and plummet
of his lordly will, I can assure him. If I
want to flirt with Pierce Marbury I shall
do it!"
"So you're up, eh, Tina? And as fresh
as a rose, I declare!"
Tina put her red lips up to kiss herbluff
old father in an abstracted sort of way.
She hardly saw him as he stood there.
" Oh, by the way / Tinaj.forgot to give
you this note last night—it was left by the
hotel porter. Really, I believe my memory
isn't quite as good as it was. ''
Tina caught the note from her father's
hand, and broke it open in feverish haste.
" The train leaves at seven?" She saw
the words as vividly as if they had been
written in characters of jagged tire, and as
she read them the old clock half-way up
the wide, old fashioned staircase struck
It was too late—too late!
The sharp thrill of agony at her heart
was succeeded by a passionate feeling of
" Let him go!" she said to herself, while
the red pennons fluttered on her cheek.
" I would not lift a finger to keep him
So, when Bruce Medway's earnest ap
pealing letter came a day or two afterward
Ernestine folded it quietly within a blank
envelope, without breaking the seal, and
and sent it back.
Verily women are strange enigmas,
even to themselves! Ernestine herself
could scarcely have told why she kept the
broken silver coin—but she kept it.
The short threatening October day was
drawing to a close; the fiery belt across
the western sky was flamin e ,o. sullenly
athwart the skeleton woods, and shedding
a sort of aureole round Ernestine Cady's
slender figure as she hurried on through
the yellow, rustling drifts of fallen leaves,
carrying the heavy bitsket on her arm.
Just as pretty as the rosy Tiny of two
years since, but paler, graver, and more
sedate. Trouble had besieged the family
since their migration to the grand do
mains of the Far West. Tina had learn
ed the serious part of life's lesson, and she
had learned it well.
She lifted the latched of the rudely con
structed log-house and entered, with
assumed cheerfulness on her face.
"How are you now, father?"
"Better,. I think. Come to the fire,
Tina—you must be cold!"
"Not a bit. lies mother come back?"
"No; it's very strange she stays so
long. I suppose Mrs. Ebbctts has a great
deal to say, though. I don't wonder your
mother is glad to get away from a.aiek
room for awhile."
He spoke a little bitterly, and Tiny
winced as she listened, knowing that her
mother had made an excuse of some
neighborly errand to dispose in the near
est village of such poor little odds and
ends of gold chains, pins and rings as yet
remained to their diminished estate. Was
there anything wren" in this pious fraud?
Tina almost felt as if there was!
It was not pleasant to be poor!
"She will be home soon, father," said
Tina. "Only see what a basketful of
cranberries I have gathered out in the
swamps! This will make the barrelful.
and Mr. Signet has promised to send it to
New York with hie. Don't they look like
red jewels, father? And the money will
buy you anew coat."
Ile smiled faintly.
"I think it had better buy my little
girl a new dress. Shall I help you to pick
them over?"
" I had.rather do it myself, father, and
you must try to sleep awhile."
Half an hour later Tina came through
the room with a scarlet shawl thrown
over her head,*andit wistful, sacred look
iu her eyes.
"You are not going out again, my
" Only up to the cranberry swamp,
father, it isn't dark yet; I—l have lost
" A ribbon or a collar, I supposes" said
Mr. Cady to himself, as he lay watching
the crimson glare of the October sunset;
while Tina, putting aside low tangled
bushes, and searching bits ofrank,swampy
grass, was repeating to herself, in quick
nervous words:
"How could I lose it? Oh, how could
I be so careleie!"
But the search was all in vain; and the
chill twilight sent her home dispirited and
unsuccessful. And Ernestine Cady cried
herself to sleep that night, just because
she had lost the broken silver coin.
* * * * * * *
" You'll be, sure - to come, Mr. Medway?
I want to introduce the successful, author
to my friends. You are to be my lion.
You will come?"
" Yes, I will come if you wish it!"
Bruce Medway went dreamily on his
way, and Mrs. Lyman whispered to one
of her fashionable friends that ",she was
quite sure Mr. Medway had been crossed
in love—he was sodeliciously melancholy."
The table was superbly spread—Mrs.
Lyman's diallers were always co/awe i/
fact—and, through the sparkle of cut
glass, and translucent glow of painted
china, you saw baskets and epergnes and
pyramidal boquets of magnificent hot
house flowers. As one of the Beau Brum
mels of the day bad said, "It was like
looking at a beautiful picture to dine with
Mrs. Lyman."
The dessert was in its first stages, when
the pretty hostess leaned coaxingly across
to Mr. Medway. •
"Do try some of these little cranberry
pates, Mr. Medway; I have just received
a barrel of the most delightful cranberries
from my dear old Uncle Signet, in lowa."
Bruce was idly striking his fork intothe
little crimson circlets, quite unconscious
of what he was eating.
"Yes, they are very nice," he said me
chanically. And then he bent down to
see what bit of extraneous white element
was glimmering through the ruby trans
Only a broken silver coin.
lie took it out and looked at it, the
familiar date and die, all unconcious of the
buzz of voices and ring of idle laughter all
around him—looked at it with a vague
superstitious thrill stealing all over his
nature—and he could almost hear his
pulses beat under the soft pressure of the
otheigkall of this silver piece, for he still
wore it nexb his heart.
"From lowa, did you say, Mrs. Lyman?"
" From my uncle, Squire Signet, who
lives in the Far West."
" What part of lowa is it that—that
produces such a harvest of cranberries?"
Datersville, I believe, near the Owasca
river." And then the conversation branch
ed off into some different channel. Bruce
Medway had found out all that he wished
to ascertain on that one occasion.
"A token and a summons to him,
wherever he might be!" Bruce remem
bered the words he had spoken two years
ago, and his loyal heart gave a great leap
as the memory
_flooded it with warmth
and brightness.**
"Cranberries?—yes—l remember 'em,"
said old Squire Signet, biting the end of
his cedar pencil. "Crop was uncommon
good this fall; old Cady 's daughter brought
them here to sell by the peck.",
To sell Bruce began for the first time to
appreciate the tides trouble that eddied of
round the serene little islet of Ernestine's
" Where do they live -
family, I mean?"
" See that ar' old blasted pine down in
the holler? Well, just beyond there a
road leads down past Cady's. Won't stop
a little longrrl Well, good e ven in',
And Bruce Medway walked down
through the orange twilight to where the
skeleton arm of the blasted pine seemed to
point to the light in a far-off window--
walked to meet the dearest treasure of his
Through the uneurtained panes he could
see the tiuy room all bright and ruddy with
cheery fire-light; the slender drooping
figure sitting alone on the hearthstone
with its golden shine of • hair and the
thoughtful bend of its neck. And he
opened the door softly and wen in.
She put back her hair with both hands,
and looked at him as if she fancied herself
under the delusion of some spell.
"You summoned me, and I have come.
Tina, my love, shall the old times return
to us once more? Shall we be all the world
to each other once again?"
It was full nine o'clock by the silver
studded time-piece of the stars before
Bruce Medway rose to take his departure.
"But tell me one thing, Bruce," said
Ernestine, laying her hand lightly on his,
as they stood protracting their lover-like
adieux on the door-stone in the frigid
moonlight, " what did you mean when
you said I had summoned you?"
He drew a little box from his breast
pocket, and smilingly held up a bit of
"And I wear its mate close to my
heart, Tina:"
"Bruce--surely that is not my half of
the coin?"
"It was
.your half, Tina."
"And where did you find it!"
"One of these days I will tell you, dear
—not in a very romantic juxtaposition,
however. You remember what I said to
you when we divided the silver piece be
tween us!"
As if Tina had forgotten one word or
syllable of those old days.
*•** * * * *
The Iron hand of time had swept away
all those tokens of lang syne now. Mr.
Medway is a middle-aged, bald-headed
member of society, and Mrs. Medway has
white hairs mixed with the golden bright
ness of her braids; but she keeps the worn
bit of silver and its sweet associations
still, Ansi believes most firmly in true-love
and romance. •
