And the husband hurried her away.
Elsie ttrymond's future must tell the
story of the past. Both her parents lay
under the spring grass before she had
learned t o know them, and so she went to

you put down that paper and listen to me
a moment. You know that party you
promised me almost a year ago. Well,
I've decided to have it next week. It's
just the season for it now, and we'll make
a grand effort to have it pass off well.'
If Mrs. Raymond had at that moment
looked narrowly at her husband's face,
she would have seen it grow pale at the
mention of the party.
•I'm sorry, Elsie,' he commenced, mo
, vino; restlessly on his chair.
'Now, don't,' interrupted the little wife
quickly,'don't, Alden, say one word a
gainst the party. for I've set my heart on
having it. I told the Campbells, and the
Wildinans about it, more than two weeks
ago, so I should die with shame to post

You shouldn't have mentioned it to
them without consulting me first.' Mr.
Raymond's tones were cold and gevere for
the first time, but his wife would have for.

that lay at his heart.
As it wns, her face flushed with anger.
'Really,' she answered, was n 0.., until
this morning, aware I was responsible to
you. Mr. Raytnonl, for the subjects I
might choose to select for conversation
with my acquaintances. Once for all,
what is the reason you refuse mo this
party ?'
.1 do not refuse it, Elsie, I only ask
you to delay it.'
'And I must and will have it next week
or never. I cannot see why you wish me
to postpone it, unless IL be because you
know the delay will greatly annoy me.'
The young man's face flushed with the
pain her words occasioned him. 'Elsie,'
and his voice was quicker and sterner than
before, 'you cannot move me by these ac
cusations, because you know as well as I
do there is no truth in them. I have some
heavy payments to meet this week, and
that alone was the reason of my request
ing you to defer the matter All I have
to say is you will be quite likely to accom
plish your wishes by presenting them in a
less dictorial manner.
It was very unfortunate for Mr. Ray
mond that he added to his explanation that
last remark, for now he assigned a motive
for the delay, his wife had began to soften
toward him, but that last speech hardened
it aria.

walking up and down his counting•room
with restless step and haggard face.
There had come a sudden revolution in
the mercantile world. and his house was
one of the first to feel it. 'There it no

what a delightful affair it would be, dream

and shame that was diwing closer and

It was late in the morning after the par.

predicted, 'a brilliant affair.'
And now she walked through the ele-

good fodder for any variety of s.ock.
