Mary Thorps Lovers;
A SHORT ROMANCE
to bid you
I am abont to
leave f o r
ler's step on
the rush of
'warm, tingling blood was still heightening
her beauty as he entered; but as his greeting
fell on her ears the roses forsook her. Pale
and frightened, she staggered and grasped a
chair for support.
"There, I've frightened my little girl,"
exclaimed Kelsey, taking her in his arms.
"That's just like me. I might have broken
the news in some decent kind of style.
Ton know, love," he went on, more tenderly
after this upbraiding of himself, "yon know
that I that we intended to go; at all
events, as soon as we could save money
enough. To u know you had agreed to go
with me and make a home, and we were to
be so happy."
"But I can't go so soon," sobbed the girl.
"And yon haven't money enough saved for
botn. "Why don't you wait, as you in
tended, and both of us go together?"
"That's the trouble," said Kelsey, as he
led the girl to the sofa of the boarding house
parlor, and took a seat beside her. "The
works have shut down on account of on
orders, and the probabilities are they won't
be.fin again before spring. If I stay here
until then alLm? savings will be spent; and
I have no, assurance that I can get work in
the spring, even. It is verv hard on us,
dear, to part now, but it is only for a little
whits In America I can get work and
save money. I have often told you that
the:a they have what is called protection.
Thework'men are protected by a tariff on
imported goods. By reason of this a man
can be a man, instead of being a slave, as he
is in England here."
Kelsey warmed with his subject, for he
had read a great deal about the industrial
Bvstem of the United States.
"He and his betrothed had long and
ardently wished for the day to arrive when
they should have accumulated enough
money to enable them to marry and emi
grate. It was slow work, though. Kelsey's
wages were not large, and then he had
never saved any money previous to his en
gagement to Mary, having had no incentive
to lay by a portion of his earnings. Mary
earned barely enough as a dressmaker to
support herself. Now the shutting down of
the works came as a great discouragement,
disarranging their plans, and making it
necessary for them to separate.
, "When do you leave, Jim?" asked Mary,
after a solemn and sorrowful pause.
"I see nothing to be gained by delay,
Mary. The-sooner I go the better. Every
day I remain reduces my small stock of
cash. Beside, now that you know I am
going, the sorrow of parting will increase
until I am gone. Goodby is best said
quickly. So I have decided to go to-morrow."
. "To-morrow! So soon!" gasped the poor
girl. "I thought you'd stay a week at the
"Well, vou see how it is, dear. For your
sake I would stay; and yet it is for your
sake I go. The sooner I get to America the
sooner I can send for yon, and a week will
beem a long time toward the last."
The remainder of the evening we will not
discuss. Some scenes are too sucred for re-
lation by the story-teller, and the parting of
devoted lovers is one of them.
It wasjarranged, however, that frequent
letters should keep alive the affection which
glowed in each heart, until the happy day
should come when Kelsey could send for his
A Tew days after the departure of the
young lover a new lodger made his appear
ance at the house where Mary boarded
llenrv Abbott by name. -
Abbott was a Government employe, a
telegrapher at the postoffice, and a handsome
.end well-dressed young man.
They met at the table, and Mary's beauty
made a deep impression upon the new
comer. Becoming acquainted with each
other bv degrees, as people in a boarding
house will, he fell deeply in love with the
young dressmaker, but Mary repelled every
One dav Abbott said:
"Miss Tborp, will you please tell me why
you never accept an invitation of mine,
either for a walk or for the theater? Am I
really distasteful to you, or is there another
.man in the case?"
"I aon't know that you have any right to
ask such a question," replied Marv, "but
still I will answer it. There is anotner man
in the case, as you say."
"O, that's it!" said. Abbott, somewhat
saucily; then, in rather a sneering manner:
"It's strange he never comes to see yon."
"He is in America!" promptly responded
Mary, rushing to the defense of the absent
' "Writes. I suppose?"
"Not yet He left only ten days ago. I
can hardly expect a letter in less than three
"Do you really fexpect Tiim to write to
Mary fcaid this very indignantly. Iu fact,
she resented the questioning of her latest ad
mirer, but could not bear to bring the con
. venation to a close. Mary was an orphan,
TO-MORHOW! SO SOON! GASPED THE POOB GIRL.
OF TWO CONTINENTS,
and she had no confidante. Since Kelsey's
departure she had thought of him contin
ually, with no opportunity to speak her
mind, and it was a genuine relief to talk of
her Intended husband, even to his rival.
"O, that's what they all say," was Ab
bott's comment. "That is. before they meet
some American girl. Then it's 'out of
sight, out of mind."
Mary stopped to hear no more. She rushed
angrily out of the boarding house parlor,
and to her own room, where she indulged in
copious flows of tears.
For several days after this she did not
acknowledge Abbott's salutation when they
met. His suggestion that her beloved James
could be untrue to her was too deep an in
sultto be readily forgiven.
Abbott smiled at this, however, and
The telegrapher's duties at the postoffice
required him to work at night every al
ternate week. "When off duty in the day
time he was careful to be at the door of the
boarding house when tbe postman came on
his rounds, to receive the letters which
might arrive for himself and his fellow
Among these letters one day was one with
the New Tork postmark, and addressed to
Miss Mary Thorn. "When Abbott saw the
address he was tempted to destroy the letter,
but it occurred to him that such a proceed
ing would not stop the correspondence.
Other letters would arrive which might not
fall into his hands. Soon he resolved on his
The envelope was a Government stamped
one, with the familiar printed line,. "If not
delivered in ten days return to." To this
Kelsey had added his address, which ren
dered Abbott's task easy.
"When he retnrned to his wort at the post
office that night he wrote across the envelope,
"Addressee deceased." Then, scratching
off Mary Thorp's address, he placed the
letter in the Liverpool mail bag, and it re
tnrned to its writer by. the next steamer.
After Marv had waited for three weeks,
and had received no tidings from her lover,
she began to get anxious. Hope did not
entirely fail her, however, even when four
and fire weeks passed without a letter. -
Perhaps tbe mails had been delayed some
where, or the letter had got lost She had
heard of such things. At last she could no
longer blame the non-arrival of a letter on
dilatory mails. She knew not what to make
of it. Her lover was true to her; she was as
If what? The dreadful thought would
obtrude itself that he had perhaps died at
sea, and had been committed to the waves.
All sorts of suggestion came into her
mind, bnt the fact remained that she had no
news from Kelsey, and the suspense was
telling upon her health.
After Kelsey had been cone about six
weeks Abbott asked Mary if she ever heard
from her lover in America. It was a cruel
question. The poor girl, pale and thin with
anxiety, burst into tears.
But Abbott continued, relentlessly: "A
friend of mine has just returned from New
York. He saw him there."
"O, tell me abont him!" she pleaded.
"Why doesn't he write?"
"I am sorry to tell you that he was taken
sick as soon as he landed. He was sent to a
hospital, and alter tossing in delirium"
"Is he dead?" shrieked Mary.
Tbe circumstantial recital was too slow,
and she jumped at the conclusion she intui
tively knew was coming,, though it wrung
her heart strings.
"Yes, he died," replied Abbott Then,
after a very short pause he unblushlngly
"Can I not take his place iu your affec
tions?" Whatever chance Abbott might have had
of winning Mary's hand, had he been more
circumspect or, more feeling, was utterly
ruined by this appeal. Villains are apt to
overreach themselves, and so did Abbott in
so hastily following up his bad news with
his heartless proposal.
Many shrank from him as from a venom
ous reptile, and took refuge in her room,
where she spent a sleepless and tearful
After this her life went on iu the same
way to all appearances, except that she was
quieter than ever. The impress of her great
sorrow was never absent from her once
bright face. All hope seemed gone out of
Still Abbott did not despair of winning
her. He was importunate still, though her
coldness would have chilled the ardor of any
less persistent lover, for she never gave him
the slightest encouragement, and scarcely
spoke to him, though, for that matter, she
spoke to no one.
A month after Mary received the news of
Kelsey's death, she was summoned hurried
ly from the dressmaker's, where she still
worked, to her boarding house. .Mr. Abbott
was badly hnrt, she was told, and he wanted
to say something to her.
While returning from his night's work at
the postoffice, just as other men were begin
ning their daily labor, Abbott passed a
building in process of erection. A hod
carrier made a misstep and his load of
brick fell 30 feet upon the telegrapher's
head. He was carried home, which was not
far, and doctors were summoned. An ex
amination disclosed fatal wounds, from
which death might ensne at any minute.
Abbott's conscience troubled him about
his deception of Mary, and he wanted to see
her immediately, and as soon as she entered
the darkened room he said piteously:
"Forgive me, Miss Thorp; forgive me!"
"Forgive you for what?" asked Mary,
wonderingly; but even ns he put the ques
tion she divined what he craved forgiveness
for, and the light which came into her
countenance seemed to emphasize by con
trast the darkness on that of the suppliant
"It was a lie." exnlalned Abbett, speak
ing with difficulty, "what I told you
about your friend ia. Aieeric -yoB. "

"Then Kelsey isnot dead!" she exclaimed,
joyfully, the light iu her countenance now
becoming positively radiant
"No; I loved you and wanted you my
selfand when his letter came I got it and
sent it back. Forgive me, ilary if you
"O, you cruel, heartless man!" began
Mary, indignantly. Then her joy at being
assured that Kelsey was still living made
her merciful, and she replied to the dying
"Tes; I'll forgive you if you will tell me
"The letter I sent back came from"
But he never finished the sentence. Death
came with reparation for his sin incomplete.
Mary's cheerfulness began to return to
her. Assured that-Kelsev was alive, she
could hope to hear from him at some time.
She tried to find him. She sent letters to
different cities in America, but without s'ue-
That Night He Writ Across the Letter, "Ad
cess. Kelsey had no relatives in England
to whom be wonld write and - to whom Mary
might apply for his address, for he, like her
self, was an orphan.
As time weot on, and no trace of Kelsey
was fonnd, Mary began to despair again,
and to qnestion herself.
What had Abbott told him when he sent
her letter back? Had he said she was mar
ried, or dead, or what? That he was capable
of lying abont her, as well as about him, was
clear. That Kelsey had accepted as true
whatever had been told him of Mary was
equally clear, or he would have written
What if Kelsey had found a girl in
America to take Mary's place in his heart?
This thought was the hardest of all to bear.
On the day which marked a year since
'Kelsey's departure, Mary sat in her room,
brooding over her trouble, which the anni
versary brought back to her in all its hor
ror, and she vaguely wondered if it were
really only twelve months since her lover
It seemed a decade, for affliction hung the
wings of time with leaden weights. Me
chanically she took up the weekly paper of
the town, and her eye passed listlessly over
Suddenly her heart began to throb vio
lently and she gave a great start There
was the name of her Kelsey, signed to a let
ter on his favorite theme 'Protection; The
letter had been written at Pittsburg, Pa.,
and its date was only two weeks ago.
Mary was at the office of the Nexus as
soon as her feet could carry her. The
printers had destroyed the "copy" of the
published article, the editor said; but a
private letter accompanying it had been
preserved. Of course she could see it Cer
tainly. The letter was produced. O, joy! It was
in Kelsey's well-known hand.
Securing his address, Mary lost no time
in writing. She told how she had mourned
him as dead; how Abbott had confessed his
perfidy; how she had written to the United
States without avail, and how at length she
had accidentally seen his letter to the News
and secured his address from the editor.
Her letter gone, Mary tortured herself
with the thought that possibly Kelsey was
married by that time. But at length she
cast it off
"He wonld certainly wait a year," she
said. "I would wait for him a lifetime, and
then join him in heaven. Certainly he would
wait a year, even if he knew I was dead."
The days went very slowly again. Bnt
they went Before she dared expect it, the
"My Deabest Love Come as soon as
you can pack up. The villain who came
between us sent back my first and second
letters, with the information that vou were
dead. I, too, have mourned, as for a wife
deceased. But I am happy now 0, so
happy. I have saved some money since I
came here, and will have a home ready for
my girlie when she arrives. Tou will find
a passage ticket inclosed, and a money
order for other expenses. Come at once to
your own James."
Mary's small affairs were soon adjusted,
and next day fonnd her at Liverpool. In a
week more she was at New Tork, where
Kelsey met her and brought her to her new
home in Pittsburg.

with the well known symptoms, oppression
across the stomach and cheat, low spirits,
restlessness, gloominess of mind, weariness,
dull headache, dirty, greasy appearance of
the skin, yellow tinge of the -white of the
eyes, loss of appetite, and costiveness? Few,

Through misunderstandings some of the
ministers' meetings were held as usual on
Monday morning, so that the gathering iu
the chapel of the T. M. 0. A. was far from
a representative one, as at the opening there
were only about 20 present, at the close there
were between 60 and 60. Yet what are these
among so many? Is it not to be lamented
that the spirit .of denomlnationalism is so
strong in tbese cities, when the cry for united
effort Is so loud? The ministry, above all oth
ers, should remember that "in union there is
strength," that "united they stand, divided
Rev. W. J. Robinson, D. D., opened the sub
ject, "The Province of This Association " in an
earnest, practical talk. He said its flrst'object
should be to make ministers acquainted with
each other; In their work they were not thrown
together; the leaders of Christian thought and
activity were entitled to recognition by each
other; acquaintance and co-operation were not
only important, bur essential. Secondly,
This association shonld awaken an in
terest in each other. A fellow feeling
and common sympathy are certainly more than
helpful; do not care a cent for those ministers
I do not know: knowledge always commends;
lived near Dr. Spronll for six or eight years, but
did not know him. Third, Know each other's
thoughts. Krery minister bag some contribu
tion to make to help other ministers: learn
much from mingling with the .Methodists,
Lutherans, Baptists and Presbyterians; by
seeing how they do work I become more ef
ficient. Fourth, Gives unity of actios. Great
interests are common to all; evils to be over
come require common action: we must be one
in pulling down strongholds, Fifth, Tbe
methods. No elaborate papers shold be pre
sented; not In a fit mood on Monday morning
to delve very deeply into hidden researches:
discussion would be better; wonld be well If
how to reach the masses were not mentioned
for 12 months.
Dr. Pick thought it good to be acquainted,
but that recognition was necessary, as in eight
years very many of bis yonng people had left
the German Church to join English churches,
but in not a single case had a letter of dismissal
been asked for.
Rev. Br. Felton regretted this should bavn
ben brought ud as be felt a profound sympa
thy, overlooking all denominational peculiari
ties, to work in an effort that pertains to the
uplif tine of the world at large.
Rev. H. B. Grose said a layman had recently
asked him when wonld the day come that there
wonld oe a true unity in Protestanism aa in
Catholicism? He bad never been so minis
terially homesick as in Pittsburg: only had two
social calls from ministers since he came to the
city; ought to make' ourselves felt so tbat
when any philanthropic movement is to be
launched people will come to us; ought to have
200 or 300 here this morning; impress on every
minister his dnty to attend.
Rev. E. B. Donehoo thought the reason of
the decline of the association was to be fonnd
in the formation of the denominational assocl-
ations; also because tbe association stepped
outside Its bounds by taking action in non-related
Rev. B. F. 'Woodburn said he might be abso
lutely in favor of prohibition and of Sabbath
observance, but from past expenen ce b e wanted
to hold up a little signal; not well to take time
on these subjects.
Rev. Dr. Boyle would emphasise tbese causes
of decline, as efforts had been made to put the
seal of condemnation on some hobby; each in
dividual certainly had a right to indorse what
he pleased; it is the province of this association
to protect ourselves as ministers; if this revived
Interest be engendered we will meet here with
interest and benefit to all.
Although this opening meeting was not as
largely attended as it ought to have been, it is
