- Edward B. CreAmer In New York Sun.
The summer I war 10 wm tin momentous
one of my first proposal. I went to spend
my vacntlon with four cousins In Ken
tucky. Ony, charming girls were they, liv
ing In a low, roso covered house on the edge
of town. Although at home men were not
allowed to call, here they could not be
kept away from me, as my cousins bad them
by tho score.
The day before my birthday I met a man
a universal bcau-as skilled In the art of
flirting as I was unskilled. lie flattered
me until my head swam and went through
all tho first stages ot a flirtation without
onco hinting ot marriage. In a confused,
blind way I felt that something was wrong.
I was ashamed to tell any one, but I
thought he ought to know that I did not
think of him as he professed to think of
me. Still all he said was so lutanglblol
could not refute it nor spcAk out frankly
One day when we were driving he sud
denly threw his Arm around mo and tried
to kiss me. Frightened out ot my wits, I
sprang up and actually Unci my foot on the
step prepared to go out over tho wheels
when he caught my hand.
'Sit down, chlldl" ho said. "I won't
Never shall I forget tho humiliation of
that moment. As I look back, I think
nothing more unfortunate ever happened
to mo than that attempted kiss. It blis
tered the unspotted page of my childish be
lle! in men, ana ue wen nas never neea
smoothed out. ''
"There was no harm in what I did," he
went on. "It was becauso I think so much
of you." No answer from mo. I knew now
that he was flirting with me. It made m
"Tako me home," I said abruptly. Is
the silence which followed, my thoughts
spun round and round. I could not formu
late them. Suddenly he said, "I love you."
I turned and looked at him. It was the
first time he had spoken that word.
"Yes, I lovo you," he said.
"I am very sorry," I faltered, losing my
newfound courage and indignation at once.
"Sorry f" ho echoed.
"Yes, very sorry, for I do not lovo you."
"Why do you tell me thaU" ho cried.
"Why couldn't you let me lovo you for the
few weeks you will be down here without
throwing cold water over me in that way t"
"Love me for a few weeks) " I said, pus-
lad. "Ilnttr An vnn munl'l
Ilo laughed in a slightly embarrassed
way without reply, so I went ont "Was
that cold wafer I did not mean to be rude.
I only meant to be honest. I do not want
to give you any unnecessary pain."
He regarded me curiously.
"So you think you couldn't lovo mo?" ho
"Not well enough to to marry you," I
said, with averted lace ana deep embarass
ment. Another long silence, which nearly
set me frantic. What had I done? Why
didn't he talk? What could he bethinking
of? Presently he broke in vehemently wlthi
"Yes, I do want you, and you will marry
mo, won't 'you?"
"Oh, not Plcsso don't nsk me, I was
afraid of this, only I couldn't tell you soon
or," I faltered, quite alarmed by his. ear-
nettness. Ho persuaded and conxed, and I
grew almost tearful in denying aim. Final
ly he said:
"Well, I won't tenso you nny more You
Will havo lots of swecthcurts after awhile,
and just let me toll you this: If you treat
them as you havo mo, they will thnuk God,
as I do, that they havo met and loved ono
perfectly honost woman." And as he help
ed mo down nt our own door he added: "I
shall never get over this. I shall uovcr
Ho did not como in with me, thereby
making every body on tho porch smile, as
my guilty aspect could not have failed to
do. Ills tone was so tragic that I thought
perhaps he would kill himself. But he
did not. He married another girl.
The next was from a mau who professed
to care a great deal for me. It came about
in this wayi I was standing at the top of
thepinxxa steps as ho enrao up tho w.tlk,
and overhead too honoysucklo and nephctos
roses met and made an arch. No olio was
In sight, but my mischievous cousins were
behind the closed blinds and heard every
word, especially as they fcald Mr. John
talked louder thau ever iii moments of ten
derness, so they claimed that his proposal
could have been heard "out in tho big
road." He took off his hat and stopped at
tho foot of tho steps. Without a word of
preface he sold:
"If I could sec that sweet picture every
night when I came home, I wouldn't ask
tho Lord to glvo me another thing! Do you
think you could do it for me?"
"What, staud hero every night?" I said,
laughiug, thinking it merely a compliment
to my white dress.
"Yes, stand thcro every night and let me
know that yours was tho faca of my wife."
I was too stunned to answer.
"Oh, Mr. John I" I gasped.
"I love you, sweetheart," ho Bald. "You
are the only woman I havo ever loved." I
certainly heard a sound behind tho blinds,
but did not dare to look around.
"Oh, Mr. John!" I said again, llko on
"Could you love an ugly old fellow like
me?" he pursued, describing me in three
equally flattering words, which I forbear
"Oh, I don't think you are so very ugly,"
I said eagerly, trylug to bo both polite and
A subdued flapping of tho curtain behind
me mado my hair rise, and my contusion
was complete when Mr. John threw his
head back and laughed so heartily be near
ly lost his balance. He interrupted my
apology and grew suddenly grave.
"Too ugly and old for you to lovo me,
sweetheart, but not too old and ugly te
love you. Pretty soon you'll go back up
north, but you'll not forget that there's
one old fellow dewn south who loves you
and would marry you, no matter how old
you were you couldn't be ugly any time
you wanted him."
"Oh, how good you arel" I exclaimed
sincerely, for bis offer seemed, to my Inex
perience, a very handsomo one.
I gave the required promise. He begged
a rose from mo and came m. I called the
girls, who entered with mischievous eyes,
and ho mado a long call, quite as it ho had
not been rejected to start with,
For n wholo year Bftcrwnrd I scarcely

It was from n young Kngllshtnnn. Ills
haughty mother openly detested America
and regarded American girls ns only be.ir
abte If enormously wealthy, ncr eldest
on married n cool million. Her youngest,
her Idol, was so foolish as to fall blindly In
low with n dowerlcss rl.
Ho mado as much love to me as ho dared
under tho stony eyes of his mother, nnd
then I went with my family to the hen
shore for the summer, Perhaps he mtarcri
me; perhaps she forbade him to consider
mo. At Any rate, something made hint
I remember thnt he was playing the "Pil
grim Chorus" when I came In from a walk,
and ho said sdmlringlyi
"Whnt n nest little Ally you Are!"
"Use tho plural, please," I said,
"Plural, how?" he questioned stupidly.
"Phyllis, not filly. Besides, how dare
you comparo roe to a horse? I detest It!"
"I hope you don't detest me, for I love
"Nonsense! What would your mother
say If sho could hear you wooing a girl who

"I don't caro what she'd sayl I lovo you
even If you are an American. I love all
America for your sake, Although, I confess,
I used to hate it. Only an Amorican shall
be my wife, if she will have me, and
my mother sffall recclvo hcrl The little
American shull hold hcrown with even my
mother. What docs sho sat?"
"Sho says this: Tho llttlo American is
too proud to marry into any family whero
sho Is not welcomed by all. The slurs cast
upon American girls by your mother in my
presenco ring In my ears too loudly for me
to hear you. Your mother's pride forbids
you to marry aught save money. My prldo
forbids nu to marry aught save tho man."
"Hang mo it I don't tell her what you
sayl" he exclaimed In delight "What a
high stepper you Arel I like you for it.
You ought to be in our family. I'll marry
you yet, And my mother shall be as glad to
get you as I, for I lovo you, Phyllis."
"If you do, you will never mention the
subject to me again, for not only do I not
love you In tho least, but I can't even re
spect a man of your well known habits.
I've remonstrated with you often, and you
won't even try to give them up. You mako
a bad lover; you would make a worse hus

"You shall havo it," I said eagerly.
"Come nnd sou me every day if yonj like."
"No, I mcun your hourly presence, I
must bo suro of you first. I want to reform
for my wife. Dear Phyllis, please say
"No, no!" I said. "I hope you wont think
mo unkind, but I can't."
"Unklndl" ho echoed. "I think you an
the crudest girl I ever knew. I don't be

"Why, of course I don't! Did you
"I think thnt you have driven mu to de
spair. And when tho worst comes just say
to yourself t 'This Is my work. Ialonocould

"I shan't," I said hastily and inelegant

"Phyllis, yi u llttlo think whnt you have
done today. If you persist, you hnvo de
liberately destroyed n man's soul. Men's
souls aro In tho hands ot women. Mine is
in yours. What will you do with it?"
As usual, I was badly frightened. I felt
faint, but I stood up nnd held out both
hands to him, saying tremblingly:
"I give it back to you just as I received It.
I dnro not undcrtnko tho responsibility.
Make of It what you will."
Ho crushed both my hands in his ami
then Hung them from him.
"I'll go to tho devil thcnl" ho aald, and
I think ho kept his word.
Ono day enmo an offer from a man who
had loved mo ever slnco I was n llttlo girl
and who Is tho only lover I ever bad who
becsmo my friend afterward. It seems to
mo I must always havo known that ho
loved me. and ho is still so unselfish and pa
tient n friend that I always think ot him as
unchanging. All that he said was:
"Pb) Ills, wo have gono thus far tin life
apart. Can't we go the rest of thq way to
gether?" And when I said "No" and be
gan to excuse myself h stopped me:
"Dear girl, doa't say that to me, I havo
loved you much too long nnd too well not
to know you. I understand all you would
say. Trust me ns I trust you, and forget
everything I ever said, except that my
heart aches with lovo for you. Remember
that always. Shall we walk on?"
I was so dismayed by his abrupt dis
missal of tho subject that I nearly fell
down Instead. How conventionality helps

Tho last ono was from a man i.ta ball.
On his dress coat, ns ho claimed me for n
waltz, was a long, white thread, I smil
ingly called his attention to it and took it
off, My sister saw mo, and knowing things
were in thnt interesting condition when a
word would precipitate matters thought to
tease mo by saying:
"Who Is it that says if n woman will take
tho troublo to pick n thread from n man's
coat that man may havo her for the ask
ing?" She laughed gleefully nt our dis
comfiture and floated away.
The first time wo stopped to promenade
my partner glanced down nt me, and there,
caught in tho flowers ot my gown, was this
same long thread. He bent down to take
it off just as wo cmnoto a dealing among
"What aro you doing?" I said.
"I'm picking threads off your coat," he
repented, stepping in front of me. "Will
you?" I thought he meant would I go on
with the waltz. I laid my hand in his, and
we melted into our places.
"Did you understand?," he whispered.
Now, it' is bad enough to havo to refuse a
man on the sofa, but to lmye to dolt when
you are in his very arms; when, while ho
tells you over nnd over thnt he love you,
he can emphasizo with a hand pressure
without reproof; when every second you
are imperceptibly being drawn closer and
clossr.uotll the wretched truth dawns upon
you that tho music and the dauco are sec
