Miss Martha Hailey known through
out RoBCvillo ni triply as "Miss Martha"
Bat by one of tho windows of her cozy
Bitting room, putting tho last 6titches
into a flannel skirt for old Mrs. Uodley,
who Buffered terribly with the rheuma
tism, which was not improved by the
weekly scrubbings bho ga'e the offices in
tho brick block on Main street.
Miss Martha had just sewed a stout
horn button on tho waiat lelt, and was
about to fold tho skirt up, smiling at the
thought of the old woman's delight when
sho should receive the gift, when the
hall door opened without tho ceremony
of a preceding knock, and a neighbor,
Mrs. Marsh, came in.
"You ought not to sew by twilight,
Miss Martha," she said, as she entered
tho room, "you'll ruin your eyes. But
that's not what I camo here to say; Mrs.
Norcross died an hour ago."
Tho smilo faded from Miss Martha's
face, and her ryes grew humid.
"Poor woman!" she said, in her low,
sweet voice. "So she has gone at last.
She 6ulTcred a great deal."
"Yes, and sho was glad to go. But
she had every attention, in spite of being
a stranger hero. Dr. Edgecourt visited
her every day, and never charged her a
cent, I know; and nil the neighbors sent
things to eat. Cancers aro terrible
things. She was a mighty patient
woman. Poor soul! Cut now," with a
sudden change of tone, "what's to be
done with Eva?"
"lias sho no relative at all?"
"No one. JSho is too refined and pretty
to do housework, even if sho was strong
enough, which sho isn't. Sho can't go
to tho poorhouse, of course, and she
hasn't a dollar there's to bo a subscrip
tion to nay the burial expenses."
Miss Martha stood smoothing the flan
nel skirt with her white, thin hands, her
face wearing an expression of deep
thought mingled with anxiety. Once
she opened her lips as if to st)cak, then
hesitated and closed them again. Ought
6ho to make this sai-iilico which seemed
urged upon her? It would be selli&h not
to do so. She raised her head and said,
in a firm, sweet voice:
"The girl must como tome, since there
is no one else to take her. I have plenty
for one I can make it enough for two
by exercising economy."
"That's just like you, Miss Martha! I
knew you'd make tho oiler. The girl
lias got a iirst rate education, and she
can 6tudy up enough to take a school by
next fall. Of course you won't want her
around after you are married."
5- A deep flush came into Miss Martha's
naturally pale face; she dropnod her eyes,
and turned .".way from Mrs. Marsh, with
somo murmured excuse about making
tho flannel skirt she held Intoa bundle to
be sent away.
The neighbors agreed that Eva Nor
cross couhl not havo found a better home
than sho bad at Miss Martha's. The lit
tle cottage stood in a largo garden, well
tilled with fruit trees and shrubs. In
tho summer it was gay with flowers of
very many varieties, and sweet smelling
honeysuckle wandered over and nearly
concealed the fence and front piazza.
Miss Martha had lived in tho cottage
with old Hannah for twelve years. For
three of these years she had been en
gaged to Dr. Tom Edgecourt, whose
practice was vet too small to enable lum
to marry, lie was a year younger than
Miss Martha, and tliis fact often stung her
very keenly. She sometimes stood before
her looking glass and attentively studied
her face, wishing she was 20 instead of
SO, and had the bloom of ten years be
fore. Her hair was still glossy and
abundant, her eyes still bright; but the
Jilumpne's and bloom of her early girl
lood had fled forever.
Occasionally she wondered if Tom
would always lovo ier, and tortured
herself with imagining it a sacrifice for
him to marry her. Would not a young
girl suit him better? She started like a
guilty thing when Hannah's tap at the
door "or call from the hall below inter
ruDted these meditations. She was
ashamed of herself that 6ha thought so
much of her ueparted prettiness and the
difference between her ago and Tom's.
Yet pho could not drive away her harass
ing doubts, nor would sho try to set
them at rest by speaking of them to
Tom. She was shy and sensitive, and so
was he. and they were both very proud.
Eva Norcross found her new home a
very quiet but not an unhappy one. She
was gentle and timid, and old pot cars
for the society of girls of her pwn age,
Sho iik-i.1 nothing better than to lie In an
easy chair all day with a book or gome
embroidery i:i her white, pretty hands,
which MLu Martha was never weary of
admiring. The dead mother had in
dulged her one child, and never taught
her to mulio herself useful. There was
no need for her to be active in the cot
taro. At tho outset Miss Martha had
told her tliat sho would be required to
do nothing but study, Hannah being
fully competent to do tho entire work of
the small estaousliment.
"You must educate yourself to teach,'
Mrs. Marsh said, one moraine, as 6he en
tered tho cottage in her abrupt way and
. - t i - i t
found ljva eniorpiuenng a cusmou.
' You can't Hye on ' Miss Martha all your
life, " Next fall v e will try to get you
the district school at Dodd's Corner,"
Eva shuddered and grew a little pale,
while tlu work fell from her hand.
"I have heard that tho children at
Dodd's Corner were very rough with tho
last master," she said, in her soft, low
"A woman might have more influence
with 'em than a man," said Mrs. Marsh.
"Anyhow, it won't hurt you to try it a

in from tb kitchen where she hid bee4
jnaking a "quaker" for ipld Mrs. Green'a

Eva some strengthening medicine. Y el

Dr. mac court called that afternoon
for a moment, on Ids way to make a iro
fessional visit, and Miss Slartlia told him
what Mrs. Marsh had said.
The young man Bat down by Eva and
took her hand in bin. Mian Martha
watched him closely, wondering if he
noticed how round and white was tho
wrist on which ho pressed his finger.
"Sho is not ick," ho naid: "ull Bhe
need Ufresh air and exercise;" and then
he projHxed that she should wrap up and
get into his sleigh at tho door and drive
with him to tho house of his patient,
two miles away.
"Can't you go, too, Martha, he asked.
"We will crowd you in somewhere."
"I do not care to go," she said, and
Tom thought her manner rather cold
and depressing, lie did not urge tho
matter, for ho was easily wounded, and
never asked her a 6ocond time to grant
him a favor. He was not a demonstra
tive lover, fierhaps because Miss Martha
never encouraged caresses. She did not
think it modest or womanly to do so, vet
she often caught herself wishing that
Torn would lo more affectionate. They
had lx'cn engaged for three years, but
had seen comparatively little of each
other, owing to Tom's studies and ioor
patients of which there were many
and they had never grown familiar, as
is tho case with most lovers.
Miss Martha watched the couple drive
away. Tom bent to arrange tho buffalo
robe more closely about ins companion,
and said something which made them
Ixrth laugh, and Miss Martha turned
quickly from tho window with a pain at
her heart. Tho girlish face framed in
fleecy wool of tho black hood was so
very lovely 1 Would he mark the differ
ence, and regret
Sho took up her work and began to
turn down ahem; but she could not drive
away tho haunting thoughts which tor
"Three years!" she murmured. "It is
a long engagement; and I have heard
it said that men aro not patient waiters.
I wonder if he has ever wished to be free
Tho ride proved of much benefit to
Eva, who was brighter and gayer for
days after. Seeing this, Tom took her
with him frequently, never thinking that
he was causing lus betrothed pain by 60
doing. He came ol'tener than ever to the
cottage, playing chess and cribbage with
Eva at tho center table in the evening,
while Miss Martha sat by with her sew
ing and wished she were Eva's age.
"Do you think I will stand any chance
of getting the schooj af JTodd's Corner
next fall, Dr. Edgecourt?" asked Eva,
"You surelv don't think of applying
for it!" cried Tom. "Why, the children
aro little heathens. They throw ink
bottles and spitballs at tho teacher and
swear like troopers. No, no; we must
not let you go there."
"I must work for myself," the girl
said. "I cannot consent to remain de
pendent on any one."
"Wait until next fall comes before
you begin to worry," Tom said. "It's
only March, now, and something better
may turn up in the next 6ix months."
Eva, as was her custom, left the room
as soon as the game of chess was over.
Tom always had a few minutes alone
with his betrothed lefore leaving tho
"I am so tired of boarding," he said,
when, after some unimportant conversa
tion, he rose to go. "I wish I had a
home," and ho 6ighed.
For somo minutes Miss Martha ptood
where he had left her, one hand bearing
rather heavily on tho small halj table.
Could ho only Jiaye known what 6tress
she luid upon his careless words! She
mechanically repeated over and pver the
last sentence ho had uttered, and remem
bered tho bitterness of ijs tone. Then
she walked slowly (nto the small parlor
again, and dropping on her knees by an
easy chair, buried her face in the soft
"I am no longer young," Bhe said in a
hoarse voice. "lie sees his mistake,
now that Eva is here to point a compar
ison. And yet how can I give him up!
How can I offer hirn his freedom? Could
I live on without the hope that J held so
close to my heart for nearly three years?
But I must decide. Not now. I will
wait just a little while, to be sure he has
ceased to love me."
Now was Miss Martha's chance to say
something tender and cheerful, but the
words refused to form themselves on her
lips. She was very shy, and lately she
and Tom had seemed to be drifting very
Tom looked at her a moment, aa if
expecting her to speak; but as sho did
not do so he turned almost angrily from
her, a dark red flush of wounded pride
dying his frank, fair face. He wished
ho liad not uttered that longing for a
"Oh, I forgot to tell you," ho said, as
he reached the hall door, "that my
brother Arnold is coming to Roseville to
morrow. He has some affection of the
head, and wants to put himself under
my care for a month or two. Ho will
leave his law business entirely ha his
partner's hands. Poor Arnold! He lias
oilier than physical troubles! There's
an old saying that women are at tho
bottom of all mischief, and men are uch
fool.? sometimes! Good night, Martha;"
and the door closed loudly.
Eva noticed that Miss Martha was very
pale and distrait the following day, and
was not looking her best when Arnold
Edgecourt camo with Tom to call. She
had never seen this brother before, but he
was so like Tom in every way that she
Ii!:ed him at once. He was, however-,
more a man of the world, than Tom, and
while Tom's face wore a look of frank
good nature, Arnold's was clouded by an
expression of melancholy and discontent.
This Miss Martha ascribed to those secret
troubles of which Tom had 6poken, and
she wondered if some woman had jilted
the handsome lawyer.
Several weeks passed by, and Miss
Martlia was no longer her former bright,
cheerful self. She did not know what it
was now to be without that sharp jain
at ln.-art, and the estrangement between
her. elf and Tom seemed to grow greater
every day. Ho withdrew more and
nio.v into himself, and she made no ef
fort t j restore the 0I4 pleasant relations
between them. She watched him closely,
antl saw that he seemed annoyed and
distressed at Arnold's decided attentions
to Eva. Once she heard him remonstrate
v.-itli lus brother, but Eva's name was
the only word she caught distinctly. She
tliought Tom jealous, and afraid that the
girl's heart would be won from himself.
"It must come," Miss Martlia would
murmur to herself. "I must offer him
hi j freedom. Why cannot I be bravo and
Co it at once? Ho loves Eva, but ho ij
net free to win her, and Arnold's atten
tions pain cud trouble him." But how
can I givo Liui up? I will wai$ jus a
Thus from day to day she put off tho
evil hour in which she was to see her
dearest hopes crumble to dead ashes,
khvj shuddered whea eha thought of
spending the rest of her life without
One evening the two yonng men came
by invitation to the cottage to nupper.
Miss Martha sent them into tho garden
to smoke, while Bhe, with Eva's assist
ance, was busy laying tho table with the
Ix-st damask and china. Presently she
went into the parlor to get from the old
cabinet which Btol between tho win
dows some silver Hjioons which liad le
longed to her grandmother. The shut
ters were closed, but tlw windows were
oen, and the low murmur of voices
came to her ears. Sho know the broth
ers were just outside on the rustic bench,
and Bhe was axut to close the cabinet
and speak to them, when she heard
Tom's voice uttering words which sewmed
to full on her heart like drops of molten
"It is a great mistake for a man to en
gage himself to a woman older than
himself. Ho is sure to rejieiit soon or
lato. - I was a fool, and now that I love
Eva with all my heart, as I havo con
fessed to you, I wish tho other was iu
Guinea. And what am I to do? My
honor binds me to her confound it all. '
Miss Martha did not wait to hear Ar
nold's answer. She walked slowly and
falteringly from the room, and went up
stairs to the suire cliauilier, where she
locked herself in.
The young men wondered why supper
was so late, but just as their patience
was entirely exhausted Eva camo to t all
them, and then went in to tind Mi;
Martha alrer.Jy seated at tho head of the
small table laid for four. She made no
excuse for delay, and the supper was so
excellent that the young men forgot all
about their vexation.
Tho evening passed very quietly, Miss
Martha evidently making an effort to le
entertaining; and seeing this, Tom and
Arnold left very early, the latter, as Miss
Martha noticed, having hardly 6poken
to Eva sjneo supper. She thought this
was out of respect for his. brother's feel
ings, which had so lateiy been revealed
The next day Tom was surprised In his
office by the appearance of old Hannah,
who quietly laid a letter on his desk and
went out again.
The young doctor's face grew very
white as ho read what Miss Martha had
written. Without explanation or excuse
she requested that their engagement
might be at an end, and said that as it
would be better that they should not
meet for a while at least, she was going
to an aunt's in another town, to stay sev
eral months. Eva would remain af the
cottage with old Hannah-
For some time Tom sat gazing at the
letter, as if turned to stone. Then he
touched a lighted match to jt and
watched it burn away to. ashes.
''That is over," ho said, aloud. 'I
have been expecting it. I have seen it
in her face, and yet I had not the cour
age to ask her about it."
It was a sultry July day, the railroad
journey dusty and fatiguing, and Miss
Martlia was very glad to Btep out of tho
cars at Roseville. She walked slowly up
the dusty road leading to her cottage.
It was nearly three months since she
had left home, and during that time she
had neither written npf received a single
letter. She had riot given Eva her ad
dress, and no one knew where she had
gone. She had wished to cut herself
loose from the pasthoping to forget it.but
6ho had not forgotten, and he? jiearf iad
not lost its flul pain, fiecollectionsi pf
Tom stung her as she saw" the familiar
streets amj stores. Perhaps he and Eva
"You don't mean to say that's ypu,
Miss Martha?" cried a familiar voice, and
Miss Martha paused beneath the shade
of a spreading elm as Mrs. Marsh came
hurrying towards her. "Wei, yoxi've
come too, jate. Lye augha. a? lock
smiths, ypu know. It's all over Eva's
i gone pil with him, and they're married
by thi3 time, I liaven t a doubt.
Miss Martha staggered back and put
her hand over her eyes. The shock it
was to her to hear of TPm's marriage
showed her, tQ her mortification, that
all hoie had not been crushed from her
heart, as Bhe had thought.
"I I expected it," she stammered.
"Well, it's more than any ono else did.
He went off soon after you left, and no
one thought to see him again. But hack,
he came yesterday, and eoped with. Eva
late last evening. Oh, it was wicked; it
was scandalous; and the whole 6tory is
all over town. I wonder now if you
know about Miss Somerby?"
"No," said Miss Martha, white to the
"Well, it seems he was engaged to this
Miss Somerby, a rich old maid. She is
mad enough at being jilted. Somebody
telegraphed to her father, and he was
here this morning to learn the facts of
"What! Tom engaged?" cried Martha,
"Who said anything about Tom? You
must be wandering in your mind. It is
Arnold Edgecourt I'm talking about."
Without another word, without the
slightest excuse, Miss Martha broke
away from the hand of the friendly gos
sip, and almost ran down the street.
W hen nearly at her own gate she rushed
blindly against somebody, and looking
up with a hurried excuse, saw Tom.
"Martha!" he gasped, forgetting for
tho moment in his excitement the gulf
between them. "You have heard it all!
I see it in your face. Come right in; you
look really Uh I 44 not knqw ybu cared
so much for Eva. But the scandal will
all die put, and 1 know Arnold will be
good to her. He sent me a telegram sav
ing they were married in Brierly early
this morning. He was to marry Miss
Somerby next month, but he never loved
her; he was tempted by her enormous
By this time they had reached the cot
tage and gone into the little darkened
parlor, where the shutters had been care
fully closed by old Hannah to keep out
dust and flies.
"Tom," said Miss Martha, laying her
liand on his sleeve, "can you ever forgive
I me? I see everything very plainly now.
It was not you I heard say a man was a
! fool to engage himself tq a. woman older
than himself. Your voice and Arnold's
are bq much alike, and I did pot know of
his engagement." And then Ehe told all
she had heard when she bad gone to the
old cabinet for spoons the evening of the
'Martlia," said Tom, in his manly way,
"I never loved any woman but you. I
did not know you were older than I, for
you never spoke your age, and it would
liave made no difference to me anyhow.
I thought" cf Eva only as a child, and
knowing of his engagement, of which ho
had forbidden nio to speak, it distressed
incs to see his attentions to her, for I saw
that sho was learning to love him. That
evening in the garden I gave him a long
lecture, and pointed out to him the harm

sec her no more; out, though he went
home a few days later, he corresponded
with her, and ended by eloping with rhe

for an instant that you thought me in love
with Eva. We both laUred under a
mistake, Martha. 1 noticed j our grow
ing coldness, and thought you were lie
coming weary of your engagement to a
poor village doctor. You did not Beem
to care for love making or caresses, and
I could not, of course, wish to force my
affection upon you."
"I was wrong, Tom, for I do lovo you
dearly;" and then, as he took her in his
arms and pressed her to his heart, kiss
ing rejH'atedly tho soft cheek, on which
there was now no lack of color, sho
added, softly, "and our engagMnont wed
not le of longer duration, Tom. You
hesitated to marry me while 1 had t:o
little, and you nothing; but vou will not
hesitate now that I am rich. Yes"
as he glanced at her black dress "my
aunt is dead, and she left me $40,000. 1

and what is mine is yours, dear Tom."
And Tom's tender kiss gave cheerful
assent to all she said. Boston True Plag.
