Muw Mollle Hrnilersofl, famjliarly known
as "Paiwy" premmiably borauNO she did not
in any rospeet renemblo that "flower of
thoughts," being of an exceedingly vivacious
temperament, and addicted in tbo earlier
days of her existence to top-spinning, inarble
playing, and otlier amusotnenU popularly
supposod to io the exclusive property of
boys looked up in a very placid maimer as
her father mado this announcement, and
answered it fully und eCfoctively by an ex
prcssive shrug of her pretty shoulders ami
a very decided pouting of her small mouth.
Then she placed the book which had Imsbii
f"Ka2'uf her attention on the- sofa by her
side, caused her small feet to swiftly doscribo
a semi -circle, and whon the flash of brown
bono and prettily-turned ankle was over sho
had aaisuiiied a bitting posture, her previous
attitude Laving Lhou one of comfortable but
rather undiguifiod recumbency. -She then
placed Iter elbows on her kneos, regarded her
father complacently, and said;
"Is the Arapahoe coming, too?"
Mr. Henderson's manner changed nt one..
"Yes." he replied, "Mr. Gordon will accom
pany bis son; and I want you, Margaret, to
treat him with every resiiect in fact, I shall
expect you to do so."
The figure on the sofa saw that a mistake
had been mado early in tho campaign.. When
her father addressed her its " Margaret" it
meant serious displeasure oa his part. It
also meant that ha int be jjlacnted at once,
for Mr. Henderson was one of that rather
numerous class of men in whose miud a real
or fancied injury continues to magnify with
each succeeding instant, until it finally wraps
their whole existence in an artificial but none
the less effective gloom. Mollio was well ac
quainted with the disease, and ou equally inti
mate terms with the remedy. Consequently she
at once bounded from the sofa, Hung her arms
around tho paternal neck, sq-ieezin;' that
useful portion of man's auatoiny until a
fracture of the cervical vertebra seemed
imminent, bestowing at the same timo upon
her sire a large number of kisses, these being
punctuated with ejaculatory mid highly
incoherent remarks to the ell eft that the
object of this tidal-wave of (e-od'ntion was
the dearest, darlingest old npa iu tlio world,
so he was. and that the oratrix, on I he con
trary, was a naughty, wicked girl, who
didn't deserve to have such a sivoet, lovely
pajia, who was always doing everything in
the world for her. And then, having fiu
isliB.1 this wild flutter of disjointed English,
Miss Mollie nestled closely in hci father's
arms and iudulged in that never-failing pan
acea for all the woes to which fvtoa V- tli-sh is
pcriictual heir a good cry.
"It's all right. Pansy, darling." said Mr.
Henderson, stroking gently the mass of
brown hair that lay upon his breast; tho re
mainder of tho head to which it lielongcd
having lwen thrust violently under his left
arm iu an npjiarently wild endeavor to dis
cover by burrowing any stray suspender or
other article of gents' furnishing goods that
might be concealed there. "I was a little
hard on you, perhaps, but vou know Mr.
Gordon is a life-long friend of mine, and I
don't like to have you allude to him Lu a
careless or jesting manner."
The face was slowly withdrawn from l
neath the paternal arm and looked up at Ilr
Heuderson. It was not exactly a pretty
face, there being a tip-tilted nose somewhere
aliout the middle of it, and the features were
not at all regular or classic. But the big
brown eyes and their long lashes would have
attracted attention from any one not a pro
fessional cynic or misanthrope, and when
these, looking up appealingly, called to their
aid a drooping mouth, white, regular teeth,
and lips that seemed quivering with the
agony of great mental suffering, the imme
diate and complete capitulation of whoever
constituted the opposing force was a mutter
And here a little explanation is necessary.
From the days of her infancy, when, her
mother having died, sho was relegated to the
care of a maiden aunt whose spinstorhood, in
view of the fact that Mr. Henderson had
loved his vfe very dearly, and did not at all
desire to replace with another helpmeet, ap
peared to be a special dispensation in favor
01 the motherless little girl, Mollie had been
treated by her father to remarks concerning
Mr. John Gordon, who, she was informed,
had gone to the far west several years previ
ously, and been left a widower with one child,
a boy about five years older thau Mollie, Oue
of the first facts impressed upon the child's
mind was that Mr. Gordon lived in Idaho.
Subsequently in her infantile perusal of the
newspapers which at the age of ten she
read regularly, and with great fidelity to de
tailshe gleaned the information that Idaho
was the home of the Arapahoe Indians, and
at once identified Mr. Gordon with tho noble
sons of the forest, and pictured him to her
self as a ferocious person of carmine huo
(naving seen Indians alluded to in the public
prints as red men) carrying constantly with
him a large supply of tomahawks and other
destructive cutlery, while there dangled at his
belt a long string of particularly gory scalps.
When, with increasing years, came the
knowledge that her father's friend was not an
Indian, Mollie stuck heroically to the name,
and persistently alluded to him rs "the
It had always been a fancy of Mr. Hender
son's that he should like to see his daughter
married to the son of his old friend, and be
had not failed to mention tlje fact to Mollio
wnen tnat young lady reached the age at
which the feminine mind is supposed to take
more or less interest in such matters. But
Miss Mollie only sniffed the air disdainfully
through her "retrousse" nose, and replied that
she hoped papa would succeed in getting rid
of her to some aborigine, throwing out at tho
same time dark hint to the effect that in case
the child of the prairies should suddenly be
come deceased, she bad no doubt Mr. Bamum
would part with one of his wild men from
Borneo, in order that all hopes of a suitable
alliance for ber might not be frustrated. At
the close of one of these outbursts, she would
generally weep copiously, which action al
ways reduced Mr. Henderson to a state of
servile humility, and insured Miss Mollie im
munity from further allusion to matrimony
for at least a month.
But now the young man who had flitted in
such a will-o'-the-wisp fashion before her
mental vision for so many years was coming
to New York. The trip was to bo made,
his father had written Mr. Henderson. fr
the double purpose of giving "the boy" (he
was 26) a chance to see the sights of a great
city and affording the other gentleman an
opportunity of revisiting the scenes of his
yontb, which, as Mr. Henderson informed
Mollie parenthetically while reading the let
ter to her, were about four miles back of New
London, Conn., and not, so far as he was
aware, of a particularly inspiring character.
now, ransy, darling," said Mr. Hender-
tiMl ret . Mollie's rather formal and
-omewhat distant - greeting in an equally
ceremonious and remote manner. Their
reaver-ation was net at first particularly
brilliant or interesting. In lieu of a more
"uggefctive topic Mollie ventured a few gen
eral remarks concerning the weather, but,
young Mr. Gordon not appearing to take
tho slightest interest in the existent mteoro
logical conditions, she was speedily reduced
to a state of hopeless imbecility, so far aa
conversation was concerned. But presently
she revived somewhat, and essayed another
attack. Had Mr. Gordon seen much of the
city, and how did it impress him?
Mr. Gordon's observation of the metropolis
it appeared had not been of an extensive
character, and be was not, therefore, pre
pared to commit himself as to its general ap
pearance. He then ventured the assertion
that 31 hh Mollio had probably often soen the
Mollio at once admitted Ixting on terms of
personal intimacy with that liody of water,
and went on to describe with a girlish enthu
siasm the beauties of the Atlantic, telling
how its apparently limitless area always im
pressed her, and then dilating on the grand
cur of the scene when the vast billows driv
en by the mighty energy of a gale, came
leaping shoreward with resistless force, their
foam-crowned summits showing whitj and
haggard against thedull gray of a cloudridden
sky, while here and there a vessel tossing
helplessly in the caldron of the tempest at
tracted attention and pity. She was getting
on famously , when the young man suddeuly
interjected a query as to whether mackerel
wore not caught in the ocean.
Mollie re plied that they certainly were 11
least she had so read in books. Personally,
however (with a charming sniff through tho
tii-tiltod nose), she knew nothing at all ol
. "I like mackerel," said young Mr. Qordo.i,
"especially when they are served with baked
potatoes and toast," And having delivered
himself of this edifying gastronomical senti
ment he gazed abstractedly at tho toe of his
Ixiot and appeared to be enjoying a reverio
in which unliiuitod mackerel and countless
baked potatoes were "constantly passing be
fore his enraptured vision.
"There is somo lovelv needlework at the
art exposition," suddenly exclaimed Moliie,
she having performed in the mental ocean of
her thoughts the nautical operation known as
"jibbing," which consists in instantaneously
altering your course without much regard to
how it is done.
Young Mr. Gordon recalled himself from
the mystic dreamland of mackerel and baked
potatoes and gazed at her intently. "I ex
pect likely," was his somewhat general re
ply. "I have got an awful cute crazy quilt,"
continued Mollie. "Did you ever see a crazy
quilt, Mr. Gordon?''
A solemn aud prolonged shaking of the head
convoyed the information that the person
addressed was wholly ignorant of (insane bed
clothes of any description.
Foranotlier hour Mollie bravely endeav
ored to discover a subject concerning which
young Mr. Gordon would consent to unlock
the floodgates of his mind, but without suc
cess, aud then gladly retired to her room.
"He isn't bad-looking, papa," she said to
her father in an ante-breakfast chat the
next morning, the subject being young Mr.
Gordon, "but be is such a stupid I" And then
she related the mackerel episode.
But as the days went on Mollie found
young Mr. Gordon to improve wonderfully
on acquaintance. She soon discovered that
he could talk fluently enough when occasion
required, and that in the line of paying tho
little courtesies to which all women attach
so much iuiiiortance he was a veritable Bay
ard. They rode, walked, took long drives,
and availed themselves of various other
amusements which a country life affords.
Insensibly they became very confidential
with each other, but it was the
frank confidence of friendship at leas. Mol-
t ; , t 1
no inougn. so, anu never was mortal more
surprised than she when one evening, as they
sat together on the piazza young Mr. Gor
don suddenly took her hand in his and asked
her to marry him. "You must have seen
how you have grown into my heart, MoIIief
he said, very earnestly; "and I am sure you
believe my love one that will l true and
But instead of receiving the answer he
liad hoped for, young Gordon found the lit
tle hand suddenly withdrawn from his, and a
pair of very snappy brown eyes looking at
"I am obliged for the honor, Mr. Gordon,"
she said, "but you can tell your father that I
wouldn't fall in with his plans and be disposed
of like a load of hay. You can tell your
father that," and Miss Moliie was gone, leav
ing young Mr. Gordon alone on the piazza,
very sore at heart and very much mystified.
"I am sorry that you and Johnnie should
have fallen out," said the elder Mr. Gordon
to Mollie the following day, "because we are
going away to-morrow, and it seems too bad
to have anything mar the pleasure of our
visit. I had no idea the boy would fall in
love with you that wasn't what I brought
him east for."
"It wasn't!" queried Mollie. getting sus
piciously white about tho mouth.
"Why, no." continued the father, "why
"Oh, of course not," incoherently replied
Mollie, and immediately boltod into the
house, leaving Mr. Gordon to enunciate con
fidentially to himself the proposition tliat
"girls were bell when they got started." '
The next morning Mollie arose very early,
and was unusually occupied with various
household duties so much so that it was not
until the time for departure arrived that
young Mr. Gordon had a chance to speak to
ber. He came into .the parlor, where she wa
ussiduously dusting a spotless statue.
"Good-by. Miss Henderson," he said, vary
"G-o-o-d-b-y,"?was the reply in a somewhat
falsetto tone, aiyl young Mr. Gordon noticed
with surprise that Mollie did not even look
at him, but kept the duster going vigorously.
" Is there anything I can do for you in the

"What is itr
"I want yeu!" she suddenly exclaimed, and
before young Mr. Gordon bad time to reflect
on -his extraordinary declaration he found a
vary pretty young 'lady sobbing violently La
Ma arms, and from the hall heard his father
remark that if women, didn't totally eclipse
the infernal regions he had failed to discover
Frominent Minister Gives
Analysis of tho Noted
A promiuent divine and an intimate per
sonal friend of Mr. Moody contributes the
following interesting sketch of the distin
guished evangelivt.: Mr. Moody, the chief
speaker in the lata convention, is a Chi. ago
production. In his physique thoroughly
healthy and nervous; eager and pronounced
hi opinion, and withal poseesHed of a large
amount of good mother wit, be is bound
to carry through anything which he under
takes. Tweuty-three years ago the writer
knew him as a "worker" on the north
side, and indeed all over tlie city.
Then he was a flame of fire, and
be has not cooled a single degree since. At
that time wild and anti-church in his senti
ments be was not an unmixed bleusing to the
Chicago clergy. He is well remembered as
riding about 011 a shaggy pony, with, an old
cap pulled over his eyes, and electrifying an
audience many a time in spite of his illiter
acy. He has achieved the wonder at becoming
intelligent and consecrated and at the eaxnn
time keeping'his heat. He has fairly broken
out a niclie for himself in history. St. Ber
nard, Francis d'Assisi, and Tavanarola aro
no more sure of being known by the future
students of the Christian church than Dwight
L. Moody. August in, Bossuet, Massilon, Jer
emy Taylor, Robert Hall, and scores of emi
nent preachers have blazed out away along
the Line of Christian prayers. Moody belongs
to another order. Without education, a man
of the masses, he has swept tho British isles
and this country,, and aroused religious faith
with a success which rivals the first period of
the apostolic age. After so wide a success it
could not be otherwise than that he should 1?
a trifle peremptory-, and sometimes dicta
torial, and it is only surprising that he is not
more so. He is modest, and, on the whole,
quite considerate of these whose field is more
narrow, and he keeps in mind his dependence
on the good will and sympathy of the
clerical body. As is true with everv
healthy and severe mind, Moody, to
the surprise of some of his followers
of the morbid type, has an eye for
tho humorous side of Christian work. His
quick common sense was illustrated when he
worked In Chicago in 1876. In tho heat of
zeal, the theme being "The Abandoned
Classes," a widely-known "worker" proposed
front the platform of the tabernacle that the
young men of the Christian association put
by their scruples and go forth to reclaim the
fallen women of tho town. God would go
with them, he said, as he closed his earnest
appeal. Up rose Mr. Moody: "No, no;
that won't do! Let the women go after their
unfortunate sisters." That ended the debate.
At that time the vouchers for miracles found
no opening for their wonderful stories.
Moody had liardly left town liefore tho Far
well hall meetings had on record some of tho
most wondrous events. His method of han
dling men is well shown in the case of
tho young man who came to him in
great despair real, and not feigned. The
world had gone wrong with him, and he had
settled 011 suicide. "Good," said Moody,
"let's think about it." It was about 11 in the
evening. "Let's pray awhile, aad then if
you think that suicide is the best thing, per
haps I'll help you along." The suicide col
lapsed. Once a brother talked quite warmly
about praying all night. "Bosh," said
Moody, "I can do all my praying in ten min
utes." He told a story on W ednesday last
that illustrates his open eye, if so it may be
called. "Street Preaching" was the theme.
'Don't put your third-rate men or your good,
ttrong men who are not quick to make
a point on lh street to preach. Why,
I knew a first-rate minister to
try it. Thei-e were two of them
went together. The first to begin was a good,
able man, but be had hardly spoken a dozen
words before a fellow on the edge of the
crowd sung out: 'The man who discovered
gas did moro for mankind than all the
preachers that ever lived This set the crowd
a-laughing. The minister tried to go on, but
he couldn't, there was so much confusion,
and ho sat down.' The second got up, smiled,
waved his hand. Said he: 'Look a here.
tny friends ; that man out there on the edge
of this crowd thinks gas is t ho greatest thing
iu this world. Why, if ha 'Aero a-dying he'd
be a-sending -ound to find tho gas man.' Tiu
brought applause, and gave him the crowd."
Untaught as Mr. Moody was ul tho start,
his printed sermons are 11 mean reading.
Indeed, then? are few discourses that are
more worth putting into print than bis
Moody never makes mistakes. He rode the
second hobby eight years' ago, but he was
quite prudont and has let that drop. Hls
argument in favor of it was mainly: "It
does good; ita wakens men to think the Lord
is coming soon," an argument which is too
plainly fallacious to need refutation, lie
started off once on the "Books of Moses," and
said somo very absurd things, which, if
true, would upset Christianity. but he
let go that string. Tho lmoks of Moses are a
kind of mauvais pas for any but scholarly
men. Even Rev. John Hall, if report be true,
was glad to recall an edition of popular
lectures, and. Dr. Gibson just escaped and
that by the udvico of a clerical friend put
ting into print what he might bo only too
glad at some-later time to unsay. Mr. Moody
has the good sense to know that his forte is in
arousing Christian sentiment and calling men
to repentance, and he rarely essays any other
role. It is enough for any man to he grit in
