"lOWA WO.II 3IY WIFE.
..lessie Hale was the Merriest, prettiest, most
fvd,—Nroking daughter of Eve that ever existed—at
t I thought so—tkongh perhaps I.was not an
impartial judge, as I must confess I was'decply
in vc,—and, *Act, I don't believe I could re.;
member of a time -when I was not in love with_
hei. It certainly was not when a youngster of
twOvei took her ender my especial care, feeling
thep prouder of, my curly headed charge than I
could nowof a ,nurse of gold; nor when a tall,
awkward boy of sixteen, I first ventured to ask
foriher company home from church; or stilllater
when, after four years absence, I returned to my,
native town, and set up as a surgeon in the house
where Dr. Moore's name had been since 'my ear
liest recollection. -
Qakplace was a remarkable place, or else the
good people felta little afraid to trust their liYes
in the hands of 'such a young scapegrace as they
had known me to be, for my horse and gig found
Mere employment in carrying Jessie Hale to ride
thin in any more profitable business; and it is
certain more of my time was.spent in Mr. Hale's
pleasant parlor than in either study or practice of
medicine. Sonie of the neighbors slyly remarked
that I must hate a very sick patient there to.oc
casimi such frequent visits; and I wak certain that
if 1 had' no patient there, all the patience I ever
had was required there at times; for of all the
tantaliziffk little wretches that ever fakeinated
and provoked a poor fellow—until he could pot
hare told whether he were in the body or out of
it—Jessie Hale was the worst.
And there was I—William Trethailin r standing
six ,feet two in my stockings, big enough to have
known better; that is sure, led about by that little
elf, coming and going at every beck and call, as if
I were a great simpleton, as in truth I must have
been, for after playing "yours most devotedly"
for six months, I was no nearer - winning 'than at
first. Qpen-hearted and candid she, wairon every
other subject; but just let me speak of love or
marriage, and I might as well talk to a stone
wall, for all the sense I could get from, her. IZo
matter how cautiouhly I might approach the sub
ject, she was, always ready with some off-hand
answer, as far from 'what I wanted maths equator
from the poles, until I was almost in despair, bat
more eager after every failure. "-All is fair in
love.and a ar;" or at least I thought so, and re.:
solved to try the result of strategy on my wilful
little lady love. . -
One fine morning, as we were about starting
for'a ride on horseback, as I was assisting Itlis
Jessie into the saddle, her horse commenced rear
ing and kicking at an alarming rate; of course
the jagged bits of iron that I had cautiously in
serted beneath the saddle had nothing to do with'
it. By thelime she was fairly, eated he had be
come perfectly unmanageable, throwing her vio
lently from the saddle . ; of course I caughther be
fore she reached the ground. No sooner was she .
in safety than, with a, deep groan, I staggered.
beck aga inst the fence, my right arm hanging
helplessly by my side. It took- nicely, for Jessie
was beindsi me m a moment. -- • •
"Oh, Will," she said piteously, "that terrible
horse has broken your arm; and what Will you
do I Poor t Virill! poor Will!"
How like a rascal I, felt at sight of her distress;
butl was not going to give up then; so answered,
with another terrible groan—
"lt is nothing, dear Jessie; I would suffer a
thousand times more to feel that I have saved
your. precious life.
"But, oh, I am so sorry! What can be done
for your she said in such touching accent that I
"The ead justifies the insane;" I thought. The
end accomplished certainly did. My answer was
in low, feint voice, as if I was dying—
" Only tell me that you love me, Jessie, darling;
it will soothe my pain more than anything else in
, And then, like the great simpleton that I was,
I put that right arm around her, and never dits
covered my 'mistake until she sprang suddenly
away from me.
"Wotildu't a little brandy and water do as well,
hfr. Trecreaniner she said archly.
• Wouldn't I have sold myself for a six-pence?
But thth . e,was no help for it; so I bad to own the
trick, and' went home wishing I had broke iny
arm, or neck, I didn't care much welch.* After
that, for A while, I was rather shy of the love soh
jtiet, for I did nut fancy hearing of my last at
tempt; but "out of the abundance of the heart
the mouth.speaketh," and my heart Wag so full
of love for Jessie Hale, that I could not force my
tongue to keep silence very long. So one morn
ing, after lounging' in my study until I was tired
of everything--myself in particular—l went over
the way, resolved that the matter should be de
tided before I returned. Jessie was sitting by
the parlor window, busily sewing, and humming
shine merry tune, to herself when I entered. She
was looking prettier than ever, I thought; and I
found it terrible - hard to talk 'on eomniouplaee
subjects, When my life was so full of the one so
important to me.
At last I broke iu upon seine of her careless
"Why in the world, Jessie, don't you say
whether you love me or not Whnt is the use of
keeping a fellow in su,spense forever? I belike
you do—in Met, I know you do,"
}Pre I was again waking a simpleton of myself.
I might have known She never would have, told'
me alter that, hut 1 did not understand woman
kind as well then as I have doue since.
"Oh! you do know, then, do you ?" she said,
coolly, with a merry.twinkle iu her eye. "Then
of course there is no need of my telling you."
" No, I did not mean it, Jessie," I said pew'.
teutly '"But do you love met will you answer
me, vs. or no?"
" Yes,or no," she answered demurely.
"Oh,. Jessie Hale," I exclaime d impatiently,
" you will - drive me crazy."
"A terrible misfortune, surely," she, said with a
laugh, throwing down her work and stepping
through the low window uponthe lawn. " Now
Will, I will tell you what I rcill do if you will
promise never to plapie me again about this."
" I will tell you what I will do if you will only
give me an honest answer," I said eagerly.
" then, if you catch me before I reachthe
elm tree, I will give, you a candid answer, upoif
I thumped my head against the window-sash,
and away I went over the green sward with ten
times more eagerness than I , ver displayed in
playing catch in my boyhood days. A very dig'r
nifted proceeding, truly, for a staid surgeon. a,
; the gossips , in Oakplace would have held up their
hands in pious horror had they seen me then; but
I did not- care if half the world saw me, so intent
was Ton,catehing that flying gipsy ; and notch
her I did, before she was half way, to the old elm.
