XiiffliL Words Which Wrecked the
Kappinoss of Two Lives.
A cool breeze blew up from the river.
Il played anions the rcnls and tall
grasses on the bank ami ran lightly up
the slope toward llie white mansion on
tlio hillside, fluttering tin vines that
fringed the wide piazza where :i group
of young girls sat chatting, resting, or
busying themselves with dainty needle
work. "What a delicious breeze!" ex
claimed Florence Freeman, rising :is
nlie spoke. The slender, thoughtful
looking young man reclining unseen
in the depths of a large easy chair just
within one of the long windows glanced
up from the pages of a book in which
lie had been absorbed, and his dark
eyes followed her graceful figure ad
"It sets me wild to be doing some
thing,1' she continued, pacing up ami
down the long porch, "Do 3011 know,
girls," pausing abruptly, "we're :tct
(, Florry!" exclaimed a laughing
voice, "now don't give us a lecture on
"Never fear; that isn't what I was
thinking of. We are hindered by cir
cumstances from being and doing
what we feel is within us to be and
"Listen, girls," interrupted another
voice. "Florry is on her high horse.
JN'ow we shall see some prancing."
tiLattgh awiiy," returned Florence.
TiOm earnest. Wli3mustwe, because
we happen to have drifted into a certain
channel, or because a particular course
is marked out for us by friends, drift
on dowtt the stream or keep on in the
name course to the bitter end, even
though wo must smother the best there
is in our natures in doing so?"
Intense feeling emphasized her
words, and her unseen listener found
himself wondering what personal ex
perience had prompted them. A1113
Jray lifted her e-es.
"Duty is often unpleasant," she
said, "but it is best, after all, to have a
m:1 tied plan and purpose and eling to
them through everything. Think what
:i chaos would result if we all followed
our own inclinations, and, worse than
that, whatever might for the moment
be our ruling passion."
Florence did not answer for a mo
ment; her eyes were roving across the
wide sweep of the river, where a white
s-ail glimmered in the afternoon sun
shine. " O. yes; there must be plans, of
course, :i:id they must be carried out. or
nothing would be accomplished. Hut
tako special cases. There is cousin
Dora, for instance. Win must she give
tip her painting to marry Fred Long,
merely Jiocausc she promised to when a
mere "child ami didn't know what she
wanted? Of course 1 don't say any
thing against Fred. He is good as gold,
but he can't appreciate her talents.
Win, he has begun to interfere with
licr'plans alread3. Says she works too
Steadily, and wants her to give up some
work she had undertaken in order to be
married sooner. She only laughed over
it. Of course she wouldn't say any
thing, but we can all sec she doesn't
love him. How can she, when he has
no sympathy with her on that subject?
Kdw, why "can't sho say so, and be
" She feels her responsibility," said
Anvy's soft voice. "She knows how
devoted Mr. Long is to her."
"Sh-h! here she comes," whispered
Edith Stanley as a bright-faced girl
fluttered up "from the garden, like a
daintv white butterfly, and perched
herself on the steps. A dead silence
fell on the group for a moment, and
then Dora turned her laughing
face toward her cousin: "Go on,
T'lorry. You were giving a lecture,
-weren't you? I could hear you ' orat-
ing,' but couldu't catch a word of the
"It's ended now," said Florence,
coolly, mentally resolving never to bo
so careless again in mentioning, "spe
cial cases," ' and unless some one has
taken notes you can never hope to
know anything about it, for it was
quite impromptu." And, taking her
cousin's arm, she marched her up and
down the niazza humming a gay air.
Meanwhile, within tho windows the
young man sat motionless, his linger
still between the pages that only a few
moments ago held htm spellbound, al
though his world had fallen in ruin
around him since Florence began her
"lecture." Outside the breeze rang
-.among the tree-tops and ruffled the
shining bosom of the river. The
August sunshine lay mellow on the
grass, but he heard nothing, saw noth
The tea bell rang suddenly and
startled him out of his meditations.
The girls disappeared with much chat
tcr and gaj laughter, and he rose me
chanically and walked like one in a
dream down through the garden and on
into a little grove beyond, his one
thought to be aionc where ao human
eve could add to his torment with its
questioning glance. There, under the
trees, where he and Dora played in
childhood, he walked to and fro, one
sentence ringing in his ears like a sent
ence of doom: " We can all see she
doesn't love him." It was hard to
come down from the pinnacle where
he had imagined himself crowned king
of one heart.
When Dora, only fifteen, had given
him her hand so confidingly as they
walked together in this very grove
only it was morning then, and spring
time, and the air was filled with the
scent of wild crab-apple blorms, and
she wore them at her throat; how
plainly he could see her now, all in
whit', and the pink of her cheek so like
the dainty blossoms he h:d taken the
gift unquestionably, and no doubts had
ever assailed him. He knew her devo
tion to art and was proud of her suc
cess, but he had never dreamed that it
would bis his rival in her affections.
"Have I baen so blind?" he ques
tioned. "O, my little Dora!''
Something must be done, and that at
once. Should he go to Dora and ask if
lit eve things were trite? That would be
like fc;tiiig: "Iluve you been deceiving
me all these 3ears?"' He could not do
it. He must wait, with what patience
ho could, until he could deciib- for him
self. He was very thankful that Dora
had not quite decided to be married in
1'ie fall, as that would bu one test he
could put her to. It is something to have
an idea that can lie acted upon at once,
and he retraced his steps toward the
hotinu with this one purpose in view.
How shall lie find a minute in which
to ppeal: alone with Dora? He feels
thath can not bear the biipeuiu until
aiiotherdav shall come, and then mut
ters to himself: "Fool! What if it
must last a lifetime? What if I am
never to know?"
As he reached the piazza a girlish
voice cried out cagerby: "O, Id r. Long!
where have 3011 been hiding 3'ourself?"
and in an in-tant he was surrounded
13 a laughing group, who scolded and
questioned with such vivacity that their
iciim found it unnecessaiy to say a
word; it was, in fact, quite impossible.
Then Dora rose from the piano.
"Here, Dora!" cried Edith Stanly,
"here is the deserter. What shall be
done to him?" And thc3 led him be
fore his brighl-tycd judge.
Dora had never before seemed to
him jti-t as she did at that moment
so far away, as if a great ".oil were
lixi'd between them. He could M:ircel
believe in her bright looks, own thing
seemed mi unreal, hit life was so shaken
to its foundations. It was only by a
great effort that he aroued him.iclf to
make some commonplace excuse.
Dora's lir-L careless glance at his
pallid face '-hanged to one of alarm.
The light from an open window fell
upon it and she saw its deadly pallor.
"Why. Fred!" she eried, "you careless
bo! You will be iv.k again. Come
and have some lea." And she led the
W113' to the dining-room. How he
longed to sa3: "Come, Dora, I have
something to tell 3011," and then, hav
ing her all to hims-'lf, pour out these
miserable doubts and fears 1.1 her ear
and so be free from them. Hut no;
here was this crowd of chattering rirls
besides, she must not know he had
such doubts. Even if she said, "I love
voti,'' could he be sure she was not y
injr it because she believed it to be her
duly. And so he finished the. evening
as best he could, and all night long his
heart tormented him with ceaseless
Several days passed before he found
an opportunity to speak alone with
Dora. The house was filled with a
number of 3oung guests, and Dora
must be everj'whcre.
Fred Long was just now taking a
well-earned vacation. After 3'ear.i of
hard work and months of illness he had
come back to the home of his childhood
to regain lost health and strength. He
had called this the happicst'summcr he
had known, but now an untimely frost
had spoiled its beauty. Among the
friends whom Dora was entertaining
her cou tin Florence Freeman was the
only one he had previously known.
Naturally the drifted together during
these miserable days. With Dora he
was suddenly ill at ease and restless;
her quick e3es noted the change, and
looked about for a causv. Those same
quick eyes noticed the walks and talks
with cousin Florence. "No wonder .she
admires him," she said, with a sharp
little pang at her heart, mentally con
trasting tall, handsome Florence with
her own little self.
Presently the flock of mem school
girls took llight. "Onlv Florence, and
3ou, and I."aid lra;"jut as it used
to be." Hut for both the old charm was
One da3 they walked together along
the bank, and" Dora said: Our phn
titne is done."
"Yes," ho answered: "I must o
back to 1113 law books and you must
have time for your painting."
A light came into her e3es. "Then
I am to go on painting?"
"Yes," he said, slowh. "I am mak
ing this sacrifice for you. I do not u ish
yoit to many me until 3011 have finished

upon. It will occupv your whole win

3ear," he said, eagerhy, quite uncoc
scious of the pain her words inflicted,
and only anxious for time wherein to
prove whether after all these ears of
devotion, Fred could be won from her.
A few weeks ago she had asked for the
length of time simply because she had
undertaken some painting which she
wished to finish, and had plans to be
carried out which she felt would be

she had this additional motive.

and steady. No trembling in the quiet
tones to betray the heart's unutterable
anguish as it whispered to it.-elt:
"How glad she is to be free even for a
As for Dora, her heart was saying:
" He does not care."
And then they talked of indifferent
matters, these two foolish ones, and the
precious hours in which they might
have understood each other slipped
away and were gone forever.
Once more apart, their letters were
exchanged at regular intenals Fred's
kind and loving. "Of course," said
Dora, "it is his duty," while Dora's
were a curious study had her lover but
known. Each ouc a little cooler, a
a little briefer than the last, until by
the time spring had dressed the fields
and woods in green again poor Fred
had well-nigh made up his mind that
Florence was right. Dora's heart was
all in her painting; she had grown
quite weary of him.
'-This suspense is killing me," kt
would sa3; "but I'll wait it is better
it will soon be over."
And Dora, working herself to a
shadow over her painting, would think:
"The end can not be far off. He will
boon be free."

Dora rose from her seat; a sudden
fire flamed in her pale cheek. She
held her h..nd out toward him the
dear little hand that wore his ring.
Something in her air bewildered him.
He stood a moment motionless, then
sci.cd the hand in both of his own.
She shook him off impatieuth and drew
the ring from her finger. Now he tin
derstood. "Without a word, Dora?" he said,
struggling for self-command as a man

her 03'es shone like two stars. And

Vigorous opp):ition of the liquor
dealers to the Teuipetance movement
is natural, and to be expected, for we
war against their pecuniary interest:
and if 3ou touch some men in the
pocket 3ou touch where they lie.
Were these men to exhibit at tlir
places of business a truthful signboard,
it would read: "Delirium tremens,
fever, disease, pauperism, crime, ivd
nes of ees. wound- without cause,
rags, wretchedness, despair and death
for sale here."
That would be a truthful sign, but it
would injure their bti-ine- more than
all the Temperance organiatmus in
extstence. 'I he liquor-sdler will not
even set up in his bar-room a specimen
of his work: he put- up blinds at the
floors and screen.- nt the window- to hide
his work Horn the p: er-hy: out the
shoemaker and the tailor exhibit their
work in their windows. :ml -how what
thev have made out of the raw material.
The tailor, when he ha- finished a
new coat, place- it where it may be
seen by the greatot number of customer-;
when the shoemaker ha- lini-hed
a lirst-clsis's pair of boots he places
them in ids window, because the exhi
bition tends to increase hi- trade.
With the liquor-seller it is quite differ
ent. He is ashamed of his tini-hed
work. With him the raw material is
always worth more than the finished
article. Were he to exhibit that he
would loe his trade. No wonder he
is ashamed to exhibit his work.
In the world's great exhibition- you
have seen finished article- of nearlv
every manufacturer, from a toothpick
to a locomotive, and the exhibitors were
anxious to explain the method of man-
iifaeture. or the texture of the woven
fabrics. Almost every cone Mvabb -pee-
inien of man's ingenuity and skill wiih
there represented, from the raw mate-
rial to the lini-hed article. Itut there
was one specimen of manufacture ah-

Fair in Do.-ton. many years ago. being
struck with this fad. and. on mention-
