Edward B. Creamer in Kow York Sun.
Tho summer I was 10 was tin momentous
one of my first proposal. I went to spend
my vacation with four cousins in Ken.
tuck jr. G ay, charming girls were they, liv
ing In a low, roso covered house on the edge
ot town. Although at home men were not
allowed to call, hore they could not be
kept away from me, as my cousins had them
by tho score.
The day before my birthday I met a man
a universal beau-as skilled In the art of
flirting as I was unskilled. lie flattered
mo until my bead swam and went through
all tho first stages ot a flirtation without
once hinting of 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 ot him as he proteased to think of
me. Still all ho said was so lutangtblol
could not refute it nor speak out frankly
One day when we were driving he sud
denly threw his arm around mo and tried
to kiss mo. Frightened out ot my wits. I
sprang up and actually had my foot on the
step prepared to go out over tho wheels
when he caught my hand.
"Sit down, child I" 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 pageot my childish be
lief in men, and the welt has never bean
smoothed out. '
"There was no harm in what I did," he
went on. "It was because I think so much
of you." No answer from me. I knew now
that he was flirting with me. It made me
"Take me home," I said abruptly. In
tho silence which followed, my thoughts
spun round and round. I could not formu
late them. Suddenly ho said, "I love you."
I turned and looked at him. It was the
first time ho 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!" ho echoed.
"Yes, very sorry, for I do not lovo you."
"Why do you tell me that!" he 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!"
"Love me for a few weeks?" I said, pus
sled. "How do yon mean ?"
Ho laughed In a slightly embarrassed
way without reply, so I wont on: "Was
that cold water? 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 tolas you couldn't lovo me?" be
"Not well enough to to marry you," I
said, with averted face and deep embarass
stent Another long silence, which nearly
est me frantic What had I done? Why
didn't he talk? What could he bethinking
off Presently he broke In vehemently wltht
"Yes, I do want you, and you will marry
me, won't you?"
"Oh, not Plcaso don't ask me. I wns
afraid otthls, only I couldn't tell you soon
er," I faltered, quite alarmed by his. ear
nestness. Ho persuaded and coaxed, and I
grew almost tearful in denying mm. Final
ly he said:
"Well, I won't tenso you any more. You
will bavo lota ot sweethearts after awhile,
and just let me tell you this: If you treat
them as yon have mo, they will thank God,
as I do, that they bavo met and loved ono
perfectly honest woman." And as ho help
ed mo down at our own door he added: "I
shall never get over this. I shall nover
Ho did not como in with me, thereby
making everybody ou tho porch smile, as
my guilty aspect could not have tailed to
do. His tone was so tragic that I thought
perhaps be would. kill himself. Uut be
did not He married another girl,
The next was from a man who professed
to care a great deal for me. It came about
in this way: I was standing at the top of
thepiasxa steps as ho came up tho walk,
and overhead too honeysuckle nnd nephetos
roses met and made an archi No oho was
In sight, but my mischievous cousins wero
behind the closed blinds and heard every
word, especially as they said Mr. John
talked louder than ever in momenta of ten
derness, so they claimed that his proposal
could bavo been heard "out in tho big
road." no took off his hat and stopped at
tho foot of tho steps. Without a word of
preface ho said:
"If I could nee that sweet picture every
night when I cume home, I wouldn't ask
tho Lord to glvo me another thing! Do you
think you could do it for me?"
"What, stand here every night?" I said,
laughing, thinking t merely a compliment
to my white dress.
"Yes, stand there every night and let me
know that yours was tho face of my wife."
I was too stunned to answer.
"Ob, Mr. Johnl" I gafcped.
"I love you, sweetheart," ho said. "You
are the only woman I have ever loved." I
certainly beard a sound behind the blinds,
but did not daro to look around.
"Ob, Mr. Johnl" I said again, llko an

me?" be pursued, describing mo in three
equally flattering words, which I forbear
"Oh, I don't think you are so very ugly,"
I said eagerly, trying to bo both polite and
A subdued flapping of tho curtain behind
me made' my hair rise, and my confusion
was complete when Mr. John threw bis
head backuna laughed so heartily he near
ly lost his balance. He interrupted my
apology asd 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."
"Ob, how good you are!" I exclaimed
sincerely, for his offer seemed, to my Inex
perience, a vsryhandsomo one.
I gave the required promise. He begged
a rose from mo and came in. I called the
girls, who entered with mischievous eyes,
and he mndu a long call, quite as it ho bad
not been rejected to start with,
For a wholo yenr afterward I scarcely
spoko to n innn. Then came an end to
school days nnd my debut
Presently 1 had a curious and dlsngret
ablo experience n proposal which iniiktf
mo t7 turns nngry, nmuscd nnd rcmorsi-
Itwai from n young Hngllshmnn. Ills
haughty mother openly detested America
nnd regarded American girls as only bear
ablo If enormously wealthy, nor eldest
ton married n cool million. Her youngvet,
her idol, was so foolish ns to fall blindly In
low with n dowerless rl.
Ho rondo as much love to me as ho dnrcd
under the stony eyes of his mother, nml
then I went with my family to the sea
shore for the summer. Perhaps he tnU'cd
me; pcrlinp she forbade him to consider
mo. At any rate, something made him
1 remember that he was playing the "Pil
grim Chorus" when I came In from a walk,
and ho sold admiringly:
"What n neat little fitly you arel"
"Use tho plural, please," I said.
"Plural, how?" he questioned stupidly.
"Phyllis, not filly, Besides, how dare
you compare mo to a horse? I detest itl"
"I hopo you don't detest me, for I love
"Nonsense! What would your mother
say If sho could hear you wooing a girl who
Is no heiress a plebeian American at that!
"I don't care what she'd say! 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 American shall
be my wife, if sho will have me. and
my mother sHall recelvo her! The little
American shall hold hcrown with even my
mother. What docs sho say?"
"Sho says this: Tho llttlo American is
too proud to marry into any family where
sho Is not welcomed by all. The slurs cast
upon American girls by your mother in my
prcsonco ring in my ears too loudly for me
to hear you. Your mother's pride forbids
you to marry aught save money. My prido
forbids mo te marry ought save tho man."
"Hang mo itl dou't tell her what you
say!" he exclaimed in delight "What a
high stepper you are! 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 ot your well known habits.
I've remonstrated with you often, and you
won't oven try to give them up. You mako
a bad lover; you would make a worse hus
band." "I'll reform If you'll marry me. If 1
could bo with you always, I couldn't help
"Try it alone first You are going down
hill fast lie i man for tho sake of your
own manhood and not to please a weak
"I can't. I need your dolly help."
"You shall havo it," I said eagerly.
"Come and sou me every day if you, like."
"No, I mean your hourly presence, I
must bo sura of you first I want to reform
for my wife. Dear Phyllis, please say
"No, not" I said. "I hope you wont think
mo unkind, but I can't"
"Unkind!" ho echoed. "I think you an
the crudest girl I ever knew. I don't be
lieve yon lovo me at all."
"Why, of course I don't! Did you
think" . 1 .
"I think that you have driven m to de
spair. And when tho worst comes Just say
to yourself: 'This is my work. Inlonocould
have saved him, and I wouldn't'"
"I shan't," I said hastily and inelegant
ly. "Because it Isn't It won't be. I
"Phyllis, y u llttlo think what you have
done today. If you persist, you havo de
liberately destroyed n man's soul. Men's
souls are in tho hnnds of women. Mine is
in yours. What will you do with it?"
As usual, I was badly frightened I felt
faint, but I stood up and held out both
hands to him, saying tremblingly:
"I glvo it back to you Just as I received It
I daro not undcrtnko tho responsibility.
Make ot it what you will."
Ho crushed both my hands in his ami
then flung them from him.
"I'll go to tho devil then!" ho said, and
I think ho kept his word.
Ono day enmo an offer from a man who
had loved mo ever since I was n llttlo girl
and who is tho only lover I ever hnd who
beer.mo my friend afterward. It seems to
mo I must always havo known that he
loved me, and ho is still bo unselfish and pa
tient iv friend that I always think of him as
unchanging. All that ho said was:
"Phyllis, we havo gone thus far -In life
apart Can't wo go tho rest ot the way to
gether?" And when I said "No" and be
gan to excuse myself he stopped me:
"Dear girl, dou't say that to me, I havo
loved you much too long and 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 wulk on?"
I was so dismayed by his abrupt dis
missal of the subject that I nearly fell
down instead. How conventionality helps
one through u crisis)
Tho last ono was from a man uta ball.
On his dress coat, as ho claimed mo for a
waltz, was a long, white thread. I smil
ingly called his attention to it nnd took it
off, My sister saw mo, and knowing things
were in that interesting condition when a
word would precipitate matters thought to
tense mo by saying:
u Who is it that says if a woman will take
tho trouble to pick n thread from n man's
coat that man may havo her for tho ask
ing?" She laughed gleefully at our dis
comfiture aud floated away.
The first time wo stopped to promenade
my iartner glanced down at me, aud there,
caught in tho flowers ot my gown, was this
same long thread. He bent down to take
it off Just as we came to a cleaving among
"What aro you doing?" I said.
"I'm nicking threads off your coat," he
repeated, stepping in front of me. "Will
you?" I thought he meant would I go on
with the waltz. I laid my band in his, and
we melted into our places.
"Did you understand t" he whispered.
Now, it s bad enough to bavo to refuse a
man on the sofa, but to haye to do It when
you are in bis very arms; when, while ho
tells you over and over that he loves yon,
he can emphsslzo with a hand pressure
without reproof; when every second you
aro imperceptibly being drawn closer aud
closer. until the wretched truth dnwusupon
you that the 'music nnd the dance are sec
ondary things, and that iu reality you aro
being hugged, actually hugged by a man
whom you are not going to marry you
must reatst the impulse to put both baadi
against him and push with ull your might.
You simply get tired suddenly and are taken
to your chaperon, where at least you can
refuse bltu properly. Ladles' Home Journal.
