UNDER AN UMBRELLA.
It was about-sunset of a ehangeful
April day,*fien a young girl lightly
descended - the stepsaof a beautiful
residence, walked briskly' down the
street, which presentlinerged into
a shaded avenue, sprialcied with mod= 1
est-villas and: neat cottages.- She was . .
enveloped in a- waterproof cloak,
which revealed only the graceful con
tour other Shoulders, over which fell
a cluster , - of golden ringlets. Her
. feet tripped daintily along -the
rough road, until suddenly pausing,
she lifted a fresh, sweet face, *it
laughing brown eyes and •a ditripled:
mouth. , .
"Raining again !"she said aloud ;
and stepping under the shelter of' a
linden, she pulled the -head' of her
cloak forward ' over - her . little hat.
And then, as the light April rain_ was
driving directly in . her face - she tied
over _,-it a thick, brown double veil.
" Sunabine- and shower all day," she
murinured," " - The uncertain glory of
an April' day: Very provoltipg
weather, when one is compelled to
go out; but 'then, everything looks
so fresh and beautiful, that really it
would be a sin to compyain.".
The sound of a 'quick step ap-,
proachirig from behind- caused. her to
glance back.' It was really growing
dusk, rendered deeper by the lower
ing clopdS, yet she could discern 'a .
very nice! looking gentlethan_ ap
proaching, sheltered beneath a. huge
umbrella. - -.._,
The girl walked on ; but in a. mo
ment the step was by her side; the
shadow • of d
. -the umbrella extende .
over - hey, and a gloved hand •was
eagerly held forth. •
"Cousin Nellie, is it really you ?"
. The girl started; and peered curi;
ously through her thick veil. .
" Lain Nellie," she said, with some
embarrasSment, "but I—l don't rec
ognize you." - '
" Not recognize Me ?• and anti only
one year's absence ! Why, . Nellie,
am I so much changed ? And besides,
did you not Jeceive my letter, saying
that you might expect me -- this week?"
1 " I don't think I did," replied Nel
lie, demurely; and : .at the same in
tent She 'thought' to herself : "I
wonder who it is that, he takes me
for ?" • - ' • . • i' . ---
"It is .strange that you should.
'have missed the letter.. But ''l hope
I am. not less weledme for coming

Hit was 'silent for a moment ;% then
said. in a aliariged-tone: • .
" You don't seem a bit glad to see
me, Nellie. And yet, if you knew
how I looked forward to this meet
ing !" '
" That was very land of you, and
I ought to •feei myself very much
Another ominous silence..

whom he takei the," thought the fun

L; Nellie," - said ' her; companion,'
slowly, "do .you remember the last
night we,were - :together —it *as alone
in - the li brary?"
- ." I can't said do, exactly.' •
" Impossibre I You- cannot have
forgotten it, and what you said 'Ao,

"What words?'.'_- .- - a•- - • • -
,You said : 'Dear Charlie: 'I do
love ,yoill' . Nellie dear, won'you
Ray them as you promised ?" • ~.
:'• The young gill
. started.. lie poke
so earnestly that. she was , airly
frightened, and felt herself blushing
as -though the words were addressed
to herself, Nellie Caldwell... Who the
other Nellie was, the Nellie belOved
by this: handsome young niaro--she
had..no idea. At any rate,though,-
she began to think it was time an end
was, put, to this venture: What right
had she thus to suffer him to - btstray
his secrets to her ? As she said,
gravely, - yet .atill with a spice of
mischief: ' • , 4 •
: " I think you are mistaken. I am
quite sure that I never said those
words to any man " . - i '
He bent a little forward and loOked
earnestl' under the hood and at the
brown Veil. - ' - - -
• 1 •
• `.Aellie, will you take off that Veil ?
I want to see year faed and to under-.
stand what- you mean by talking pi
this strange Way." i
' " Ph, you will understand it pres
ently, when you come to the green
gate yonder; then. I will - remove my
veil. Bat how came you to recognize
Me?" she asked curiously. .
" How could :I - have failed to , .
ognize you, rather. You have grown
slightly taller„perhaps ' but .1
your step and your beautiful hair,.
more beautiful than ever, : Nellie. - I
was on my way to your house when
at a distance I. saw you.come down
the steps, and I could. not' resist try-
ing .to overtake_ you, for . just sous
word and look?' °
"'Oh," said Nellie, as' a light dawn-,
ed.-upon her; and then, , to put a
check upon her s companion's anti
mentality, she added : ." How it
rains," and quickened her pace.'
" I:et it rain !". he answered impa4
tieutly--" cannon balls, if it will. I
want to talk to you,. Nellie."
" Cannon balls may suit your taste,
perhaps, but would i searce be agreea
ble to me; and as to' talking out here
in the rain and "darkeless, I am not
romantic enough for that." .
• Be was forded to keep by her side
as she walked briskly - on.
"Where are you going?" he in
".Home." -- 11
" Home. iy you !are taking a
contrary direction from, home."
I think not; - I ,heilieve I know
where I live." I
" I did not know you bad remov
" Did you not? Ah, here 'we are
at the gate. Please open it, if you
can, on the inside."
Ile relUetantly obeyed,- but railed
the latch .so slowly as to detain bd . ,
while he whispered:
" Nellie, you have not given ,md
the welcome you promised. You have
-!not said those words."
" I don't renlly believe. you want
me to say them," she answered, very
much'inclined tb.laugh, yet almost
frightened at her oWn audacity.. •
" - Not want it? You ice how I
love,you?" • •
" I don't believe it is me younove,"
she returned, pushing open the gate.
"Good Heavens, Nellie, how'
strangely you talk ! Who then` do
you imagine I love?"
" I am sure I don't 'know,"' said
Nellie, slowly raising the veil and
plashing back the hood. "1, don't
know, but Pin sur.:t can't-be me !"
And she looked his face with
a demure, pursed-up little Mouth, and
brown eyes shining with .Suppressed
mirth through their long;black lashes.
He stood gazing upon- her as if
petrified with astonishment: Then a
deep flush crimsoned his handsOine
.face, and his eyes flashed with an in
" I beg your pardon !" he said,
with ceremonious politeness. '• Of
course it was a mistake on my' part."
" I supposed it was," ' said Nellie,
demurely , . • . ,
"f—l mistook you for another,"
he said, both embarrassed and angry.
"Was that my fault?"- she returned.
" But you—you certainly allowed
me to rest under the delusion."
"That was for fun."
" Perhaps I .was wrong. -Indeed,
I now rather think that I .was," said
Nellie, coloring beneath his gap.
" But as neither t of us shall ever men
tion thii adventure, I suppose .no
harm is done," she said coolly.
He regarded her, an instant with a
stranne, undecided expression..
"17beg your pardon! I nii'keep
ing you in the rain," he said. "Good
evening 1" And lifting his hit with
icy politeness he walked away.
Nellie, as sh
am e entered! the house,
was met, by her elder sister with a
shower of questions as to who was
that elegant looking..man, how she
had met whit he said.
.::[,Tnlike herself -in general, she re
turned brief replies; and escaping to
her, own ,room, threw aside her wa
terproof, changed I her dress, and,
seating herself beforethe fire, gazed
itisently into the glowing embers.
Presently she laughed, then bit - her
lips with a vexed expression,, , and
finally began to cry.
" I wonder what makes me do4such
silly, unlady-like things," tlinifght
she ; " I am always getting into some
ridiculous scrape or other. What an
opinion he .must have of me! I shall
tie really ashamed to meet Lim again,
as I suppose I must if be is Mr.
Then her mood changed.
" I don't care. He may be as dig
nified as' he,gwoses, bit he shall
never see that Ltrouble Myself even
to remember this ridiculous stalk,
and ,the horrid old umbrella I" -
Presently.another change came
over liet.s3‘ *I .
" Pool ; fellow ! I 'can't help pity
ing him, for fear this has been merely
rehearsal of• - the teal act. Why,
Nellie Archer was in the - parlor with
Captain Lloyd nearly two hours this
afternoon, when she must have known
froth the letter of Charlie's coming.
I wonder if she ever said to the-cap
tain—or tci. young . Doctor Bliss—
what she said to' her cousin ?" Poor
fellow ! 'And Nellie has been show!
inghis letters to all the girls! She
could not have done so had she lolled
Nellie Caldwell was correct in her
anticipation of 'again meeting Mr.
Gray. The society of the little' town
was very gay; and what with church
fairs and parties, and other social
anufsements, it was impossible that
these two should not be thtpwnlto-,
Nellie blushed in spite of her,ute
most endeavors to look unconscious
when Mr. Gray was first presented
to • her but that gentleman was! so
cool and composed, that she saw:illy
aonbted whether he hid recognized
her. _ _
He conversed with her little,
danced with her once, and as she ob
served, was chiefly engrossed in
watching Nellie Archer and Captain
Lloyd.---And Miss Archer, proud' to
show off her handsome couhin and
her own influence-over him, treated
him very sweetly in the intervals of
her flirting with other admirers.
Sonie weeks glided by, in which
the acquaintance between Miss Nel
lie Caldwell caul Mr. Gray impercep
tibly assumed's more agreeable char
His cold politeness and her cold
indifference gradnally thawed,- and
each vaguely felt that, despite their
mutual efforts , to keep' apart, there
was somethine , mysteriously
drew them to g b ether.
Nellie attributed this to her aym;
pathy,-which his disappointment in
regard to' i bis cousin, and often ex
pressed thelwish that the latter weuld
rove him as he deserved, and 'make
him happy by marrying him, It was

could prefer Capta r in Lloyd- to Mr.
Chas. Gray...c -, ;
Neither had ever but one° all uded ;
, to this first meeting.
\Doming out of church one evening,
Miss Archer said: ,
"'Nllie, what have.you been doing
with yqurself this last terrible rainy
week? \lsn' - such weather enough
to give - onq the blues?"'l
" Oh, no l r. she answered, cheerily;
" I like rainy days at home; and can
always find something to amuse my
self with." \ - • ;
~1' Even in the ram itself;' said Mr.
Gray, on othbr side. "What- '
enviable disposition is you Miss
Caldwell, to be able to , r fun in
such a situation!"
Nellie looked up quickly,and,met
the half laughing glance hen* upon
her. instead,of answering gaily\back
as ids` her wont, she colored, her
eyeslled with tears.
"'i Gray," ihe said, as Miss
Arch r fell behind with 'Captain .
Lloyd, " rwant - yott - to promise to
forget that. hateful walk in the rain,
and neveragain allude to it."
," II am not sure I - could keep such,
a proinise—at least the first part."
" That means that you haven't for- ,
iven me," i ,
_ "1 really do not feel as if I bad,
anything to forgive, or you to ask
pardon for," he said, pleasantly.
• " It was Very silly and wrong, but
you see I have grown older and - wiser,
since," said Nellie, demurely. -
" If the increase of wisdom is in
- proportion to that' of age—" he tom
mence'd, but was interrupted by Miss
" Nellie, are you and Charlie Aid
ing?' or what is the mysterious whis
pering about ?" -
" We• are not flirting;" retnrued
Mr. Gray, coolly. " Miss Cadwelt
does not flirt, I have observed gri(l
for myself, you know I detest it."
"I know you have some old-ftsh
ioned and absurd notions," retorted
his cousin, laughing. "One must be
very prudish and old-fashioned to
meet your ideal , of perfect woman
hood, Charlie." •
And again Nellie Caldwell felt
that unfortunate walk,- and the im
pression which her conduct must
have produced on this very particu
lar young gentleman. ' -
- Some time after this, there was a
picnic at a picturesque old mill a - kw
miles from town. Nellie Caldwell
spent rather a tiresome day, wonder
ing why it was that she ,could not
enjoy herself as usual, and envying
Nellie. Arche . i. in her high spirits. To
day, at least, she observed, she and
Mr. Gray seemed to be getting along
unusually well together, she - appear
ing radient, and lie • serenelyTiappv.
"I wonder if they are engaged ?"
she thought, and did not seem nearly ,
so elated as she ought to have been
at the,probability of such a Consum
, . on. .
Ice sought her out occasionally,
but find little to say, seeming to pre
fer reclining at her feet on the turf
beneath the willows, looking dreamt" ;
ly on the water, or up into , her face
as she talked.
Several young ladies observed that
they both looked very stupid and
uninteresting at each other.„
As the evening waxed late, there
was a sudden stir among the compa
ny. It was certainly going to: 'rain,
some weather-wise prophet had de
clared, and the - elder portion of the
company, at _least, were anxious to
get safely under shelter before the
Mrs. Caldwell collected her-desert
spoon-4 and her L daughters who had
cork with her in the-family carriage.
"Why, Nellie," said one of her
cornpanion, "you are surely not-go
ing so. soon. It would spoil the pan
ty ; and besides, you will miss the
plantation songs, and your favorite
Mr. Gray stepped forward:
Would Miss Nellie accept si, seat
in his buggy ? •and would Mrs. Cald
well intrust her daughter to. his
charge? "If - so,MisS Nellie could
stay to enjoy th reel, and yet arrive
at home almoit as soon as the car
riage with the fat and laiy horses.
So Nellie stayed, and her spirits
raised unaccountably. ,
- The final favorite . reel was scarcely
commenced,- when a few scattered
drops of rain startled '01614 throngs- 1
An immediate rush was wide to thp
convey awe. ,
" Don't -be ) alarmed," Mr. tray
said, as he assisted Nellie into the
buggy. "It will be but a passing
shower, probably, and we will ! ! take
-the road through the woods, Which
will afford some shelter in addition
to that of my umbrella."
A few' other vehicles were going
the same way. Mr. Gray's was the
last in the procession.
"Yon don't object to the umbrel
la ?" he said,, raising it, and adjusting
it to its socket in the back of the
" I hate umbrellas !" Nell ie'retur9-

Why, there was not a young lady on
the ground to-da, who did not make

" Well," said Nellie, laughing,

" Perhaps so. In fact, tho idea
presented itself on my first*eting
with yon." • -
She colored and bit her Hp, but
made no answer: I

"It is now." - '

chievously, half, seriously -- "how

'" I never . said this to 'Nellie Arch
