is. with tho story of "My First Love;"
there- are features in it which you will
doubtless recognize as having fanned
Cart of your day dream, gentle reader,
ut as you turn the last leaf of tho nar
rative I believe you will feel with mo
that none save this old, pure, sweet
plirase has any right to head thewj lines.
I am an Englishman, brought up in
all the traditions of an oi l Tory family
by a dear mother God rent her 6oul of
whom her friends used to say: "Ah! but
she is of the old school." Very 6tilT and
ceremonious, very punctilious and very
polite, but every action fraught with an
old world purity and courtesy that made
one think of the pictures of Sir Godfrey
and of the iierfumes of dried lavender.
Man, says Herbert Spencer, is formed by
his environment, and my environment
was my mother, a woman of tho world,
mark you, aux bouts ties, ongles. You
must not imagine that I was brought uii
to man's estate i.i ignorance of tho foul
gases of the valley and marsh while
breathing the pure "air of the mountain
top. The only lTect visible of the ten
der influences which guarded my life
till I was four-and-twenty was a certain
reserve of manner and a more than ordi
nary "English" horror of anything ap
proaching to "bad form." I tell you all
this to show you once more how lovo
laughs at prejudices and calmly ignores
preconcei ved ideas.
My mother dn d with the tulips of
18b0. ami some of the fellows at the club
erstiaded me to come to America, aud
furthermore, with a view to a thorough
distraction of my thoughts, prevailed
ujion me to give it series of readings in
tho States of my own and other verses.
I have coquetted a little with the muse,
and, as would le tho case with most
young poets or rather rhymesters the
thought of presenting my work vivo
voce .to the people of the United States
caused a strange thrill of delight. 1
communicated, therefore, with Maj.
Pond, and in the early autumn of IS
1 sailed for the States, and commenced a
tour which. 1 am happy to say, was not
Tho following June found me in Den
ver, Colo., and 1 put up at tho Grand
Canon hotel for a week, during which
time I gave a couplo of readings and
rested amid the gorgeous scenery of the
state. The third day after my arrival I
had come down us usual - to take my
matutinal coffee in tho public dining
room, and was hardly seated when a
lady, whom candor comelu mo to de
scribe as "an old lady," came mto the
room, aceomtianied by a young girl.
They took their seats exactly opposite to
me. A young girl, did I ray? iay, the
was hardly more tlian a chi'id 17 or 18,
maybe and ber face traced Itself upon
my soul in a manner which is inefface
able.' It was a round face, with just
that slight squareness of jaw .which
promised to give to it a wonderful
strength of personality as years went on.
ller coloring was perfect, faintly
flushed with the dawn of womanhood,
with white temples and throat, and a
high, pale forehead, the whole framed
in a careless torrent Pf ludr like to liquid
gold. A pair Pf great wandering, but
withal fearless, blue eyes, a finely
modeled nose, just the least bit tp tilted,
and a month like those pf the f herubt
in Raphael's ''Madonna" in (he Sistint
chapel. She was a little girl, and hei
figure was just taking up(q Itself the
sweet sinuuus curves at womanhood,
which allowed themselves as sho moved
to her scat with all tho untaught, un
conscious grace of perfect and healthy
development. Our eyes met a sjip sat
down. She )ouked at me with a full,
frank gaze n which there yvaa an unde
fined something of half recognition
she had evidently known epme one who
resembled me and then, having satisfied
herself of my non-identity, she turned
her attention to the older lady and their
respective breakfasts. moment after-:
wards 1 rose and left the room.
During the next two or three days we
met periodically, in the dining room, in
tho corridors, in the elevator or on the
streets of Denver, and W0 always threw
ono another c, passing tliat glance
which, though apparently absolutely ex
pressionless, seems to sayi "If we knew'
one another we should be friends."
Have you never seen people in the
streets, in theatres, in ball rooms, con
cerning whom, as your eyes meet for a
fractional part of a second, you have
said this to yourself almost uncon
sciously? I have, and always, regret
these unknown f rienda Of fnihe, but I
never felt it more strongly than I did
with regard to this golden haired child
whom I met 'way out in Denver, Colo. .
The last morning of my stay in the
city arrived, and 1 was sitting alone in
my room up 6tairs, jotting down on a
scrap of music iaper the chords pf ap ac
companiment to p litte song tha(' had
written for a f nend in Baltimore. My
task finished, I went down stairs to tho
arlor. where there was a piano, to try
heir effect, and, finding, (be room an.
parently empty, I seated uiy6tlf on the
music stooL As 1 opened the piano
I heard a rustle, and turning round 1
saw my little unknown friend sitting in
a low arm chair in the embrasure of a
window, her great blue eyes fixed upon
me in fearless curiosity. I - rose instmc
lively and said:
"Shall I be disturbing you. mademoi
selle, if I play over a few chsrds?"
"Oh. no," 6he paid. f.Meaiarno pn."
As 1 (urned to flie' keyBcard she added:
i!VilI my presence disturb ypu? Shall t
go awayr '
Py po means," J hastened to reply;
on the-contrary. Indeed, I sluill take
the liberty. If you will allow roc, of ask
ing your opinion on a little melody that
I want to run over.
She looked out of. the window fcr a
moment, and then turning her eyes full
upon me once more, she remarked: ...
"I came down here because 1 was so
lonesome up stairs. Auntie has gone
out on business, and some friends I ex-
Eected to call and tako me for a drive
"Is it possible?" was my rejoinder, and
in ten minutes we wero the greatest
friends in tho world. We sat in the
drawing room of tho Grand Canon hotel
for nearly an hour, chattirg coyly of
America nnd England and of our hobbles
and of ourselves. At the end of that
timo she rose nnd said:
"Well, it's n humiliating necessity, but
I must eat to keep alive, and if you will
excuse me, I'll go down to luncheon."
I rose also and answered: "You are
quite right if there were no prosy side
to life, we should not appreciate the
tioetry of it" and then, after a moment's
hesitation, added: "I am a foreigner,
and do not understand your rules of
conduct, but would it bo very casual ol
uio to suggest that, as I also must live,
ami with that object in view must also
lunch, we should lunch together. a:i you
"Why, of course why shouldn't we?"
and then sho added, a look of (XTplcxcd
inquiry coining over her brows, "1 don't
know quite who is going to introduce us
to one another, Mr. r"
"Neal," eaid 1; "Ilonal Ncal. at the
service of Mademoiselle ?"
"Tressahar Paulino Tressahar," said
sho. "Let mo give you a card."
She fumbled for her card case and 1
for mine, and standing in the doorway
of the hotel parlvr we gravely exchanged
cards and liowcd formally to one an
other. "I live In Nashville, Tenn.," she said,
"and if you ever come there it will give
papa Col. Euclid Tressahar very great
pleasure if you will come and see t:s you
will come, won't you?"
I assured her that I would, and we
went down to lunch. The head waiter
Save me a menu and a check, and 1 or

watched mo with a nervous, jier
plexed look which I iierfcctly well
understood, but which for the life
of me I couldn't see any way of soften
ing unless I told the head waiUr to give
me two checks and filled up one for her
and one for myself, which would have
been foolish to my English idctis. As we
finished our microscopic repast, how
ever, sho said in the most in:;t'.er-of-fact
tone to the waiter:
"The check, please."
Tho obsequious Italian brought it to me
naturally and she looked up and said:
"And mine, too, waiter."
"They aro lioth together. m;u!:ime."
"Oh! but no I want" the began.
"Really," said 1, feeling very uncoiu
fortable,""it is such an absolute nothing
that it would l.e simpler, and would give
mo a pleasure into the bargain, if you
would allow mo to sign V.iia. Miss Tres
sahar." "Certainly not," she replied, blushing,
though her tone was quite divide:!: "will
you hand it to me for a moment?"
I did so aud ihc gravely calculated
what her share of our lunch had been,
and then producing her purse she counted
out tho exact aiuount in silver and
handed it over to me with the check.
"Now," said she, "if you will sign it it
will be all right."
I did so without a word, fascinated,
but withal feeling a little "mean," and
then the child, laying a quarter down be
side her plate for the waiter, 6aid:
"Now, let's go Lack to the parlor for a
few minutes and then I must go out."
Wo went up stairs again and pat for
half an ho'ip prpo, talking of quite seri
ous matters, and then we bade oue
another fare-well, mutually expressing a
hope that ia truth it might be not "good
by," but "an ivoir." "Sho was leaving

A Woman Considered mm PonoaaJ Prop

Broach Before tb Bar The Wrong
Maa Told Why Ho ffu There.
To a Ilockinir county court belongs the
remarkable distinction of passing upon a
woman as personal property. The unique
precedent was laid some twenty -Ove or
thirty years ago, and before women's
rights had progressed as far as they have
since. A citizen of old Hocking married
a young lady against tho energetic pro
test of her father, and set up housekeep
ing on his own account. It was a case
of "love in a cottage," as a matter of
fact. During the temporary absence of
tho unsuspecting bridegroom the wife's
father ana brothers invaded lovo's domi
cile and carried her oil.
The despoiled husband repaired to a
neighoring justice of the peace in search
of law suited to the exigencies of the
After a thorough investigation of

the squire, the constable and the desolate

The papers were accordingly made out
and the writ lodged in the hands of the
constahio. who proceeded at once to exe
cute it, and rcptevined the woman from
tho custody of her father, who. thonrrh
exceedingly irate, uiCn i lv.i liko resist
ing the edict of the court. When it came
to appraising the property and fixing the
sworn value of a woman, the constable
was rather perplexed, but the three free
holders whom he called in to act as ap
praisers solved the problem in a manner
at once off hand and business like.
They sent for her husband, the plain
till, and ascertained for him that he had
expended the following sums of money
upon his "property:" License, 75 cents;
justice's marriage fee, (3.50; ono new
dress, 874 cents; one new bonnet, 871
cents. They furthermore decided that
the woman was "perishable property,"
and her value was only to be estimated
theoretically. Whereupon they fixed
tho value of her labor and services for
tho month at $4, which they added to
tho other items, making $8.50.
In duo course of time the trial came
off and the plaintiff duly and satisfacto
rily proved his ownership by producing
his marriage certificate. The defendant
could not upset this evidence, and the
plaintiff got judgment of restitution and
25 cents damages. His property was
then restored to liim In due and regular
form, and the defendant was solemnly
notified that a repetition of his offense
would be regarded as petty larceny and
punished accordingly. The man and his
wife are still living happily and con
