awaiting the arrival of their guests
alert and watchful the cat of the
three creatures in the room alone in
different coIIy curled up before the
warmth of the lire fast asleep
She smiled across at him
To me It doesnt seem like GO years
since we were married she said rais
ing her hand and touching the chcrlsl
ed comb into place Does It to you
It hardly seems 20 he answered
with old time gallantry returning her
Ills answer pleased her She swept
her hand ai ross her knee smoothing
out the creases In the silk No wonder
there were creases in It lying away in
the old trunk up stairs so many years
Ive put the plates together on the
table and counted out the napkins
fiho told him They are some of tin
tliicst napkins too left out of the
wreck of our fortunes but I am going
to use them tonight We dont have a
golden wedding every night you know
I have set the cuke on the table beside
them When our guests come swarm
ing hi Ill make them some tea They
will need It coming out of tho cold
So I have left tho kettle on tho fire In
tho kitchen all ready Theyll be com
lng along now pretty soon glancing
up nt the clock Its most time
She turned her head listening There
were footsteps on tho walk outside
They passed on by
Do you remember our tin wedding
she asked to while away the Impatient
time of waiting How they came
from miles around bringing us all sorts
of ridiculous tin things buckets and
pans nnd dlnpers even little cunnlnc
biscuit cutters and tin cups I count
ed the cups afterward There were 25
They always do that bring too many
of one thing ITow many clocks wai
It they gave us when we woro married
A dozen at least And now this Is tho
only one left and It Is growing old
too like us old and rheumatic
Yes I remember that tin wedding
ho said looking tenderly nt her old
face which tho soft shade of tho lamp
nnd his falling vision rendered nlmost
wrlnkleless Wo were young then It
is good to bo young Johu was a wee
bit of a baby
I know she smiled Tliey waked
lilm with their noise clattering tho tin
about nnd Irummlng on tho pans
How tlmo passes Now John Is an
oldish man Ills children nro grown
Some of them are mnrrlod
Tho old man was full of reminis
cences as became the occasion
We grow prosperous afterward he
went on musingly even rich It Is
good to bo rhli nlmost as good as It i
to bo young though not quite Do you
remember our crystal wedding Mary
tho grandeur of It What tine presents
they brought us magnificent bowls
and goblets and saltcellars Altogether
they must have cost a fortune Some
of that cut glass shone like diamonds
Whatever became of those beautiful
things I never seo any of them
Mary left her chair and going over
to the table took up tho little wine
glass filled with violets
They nil went In the snle she Bald
all but this holding It up to tho
light and this tn nickel
She set It down In such n position
thnt tho violets might nod straight at
the old man wafting him sweet
est perfume nnd resuming ht eat
ngaln spread out her won rfu sit
skirts nnd assumed her coipnLr mlc
awaiting her guests

f The room In Hplto of Hh poverty
wore n gala ulr of subdued expectancy
Tho hearth wuh Hvept and gurnlnhed
the rug In front of the lire lay without

ly out
The rag carpet woven of innumera
ble old dresses of various hues and put
terns showed KlgiiH of having been re
cently Kprlukled with hnndfulu of salt
nnd carefully cleaned with tho newest
of brooniH the lace curtains darned

Joneses t Irowns
It Is tlm they were here then If
they nro coming she interrupted and
with that she wont to the wlndov
drew aside the curtain and looked out
It is a bad night she said The
snow is beginning to fall again That
may keep some of them away but not
The clock struck 8 It struck vicious
ly The noise disturbed the cat She
stretched herself full length her claws
showing rolled over on her other side
curled up In a Huffy ball then dropped
off to sleep once more her face up
There were voices outside Two peo
ple under an umbrella upon which the
snow fell In large Hakes hurriedly ap
proached the house
Youd better go to the door Mary
said tho old man who was also listen
ing though he pretended not to be
and take the little brush broom with
you to brush the suow off their cloth
She turned disconsolately away from
the window
They have gone by she said
Ho set himself to comfort her Nev
er mind It Is early yet he reminded
her It In only half past 8 Nowadays
people dont como to parties until near
ly 0 they tell me It Is different from
what It was when wo were young
Our crystal wedding wasnt so very
long ago said she and they came
early enough to that She looked buck
over her shoulder through tho window
at the shining walk along which cou
ples passed laughing and talking to-
gethor their wet umbrellas bobbing up
and down Jlut we were rich then
sho added with a sigh
Tho clock pointed to nearly 9 Ma
ry sat in her rocking chair ouce more
listening A every footstep sho raised
her head her eyes brightening with
hope behind the gold rims of her old
spectacles As they passed by her head
drooped ngaln nnd her eyes fixed them
selves upon the fiamos whoso filcker
drew out the tmber lights from her tor
toise shell comb nnd tho left over yel
low In her hair which in her young
days had boon golden
Tho old man dozed Now nnd then
his head bent upon his breast raised
Itself with a sodden Jerk and drooped
He sat thus for a long time nodding
lly and by he grasped the handles of
his ariiuhnlr and slowly rose bowing
courteously to the right and to the left
They are beautiful these presents
he said unctuously They glisten like
diamonds They ipiHc dazzle me I
thank you I thank you -
Ills wife had also risen watching
him wonderlngly She went to him and
took him by the arm gently pushing
him back Into his chair
Sit down Ulchnrd she command
ed You 1 ave been asleep You are
talking now In your sleep Were you
dreaming of our crystal wedding and
the beautiful presents they brought us
- present we didnt need beeuuse we
had plenty then Tills Is not our crys
tal wedding This Is our golden wed
He blinked his dim eyes open
And Isnt the house full of people
he asked her Havent they come
these good friends of ours bringing us
presents hnndsome shining presents
nrmfuls of them I thought 1 saw
No sho answered bitterly Wo
are no longer rich It Is years slum our
crystal wedding and we have descend
ed In the scnle of fortune This Is our

The wife went out Into tho dining
room where the plates for the guests
were piled one above the other the
napkins beside them the frosted enkes
with the cake knives lying ready to
She sot the plates on the polished old
sideboard laid the napkins in n drawer
and covered the cakes with a cloth to
keep away the mice
Then she walked softly back Into tho
room The hem of her dress touched
the cat She got up moved lazily to
the other corner of the rug and lay
down there out of the way while her
mistress drew the curtains and passed
into the hull to lock the front door
She stood there in tho hull a moment
listening Somebody was coming Late
It was true but coming at last They
were not entirely friendless then She
heard the steps drawing nearer and
nearer They went on by echoing more
and more faintly along the pavement
until the sound of them passed entirely
She locked the door ro entcred tho
room nnd stood close to the old man
running her loving fingers through his
frosty hair
We are old and friendless and poor
Richard sho said In her thin tremu
lous voice but wo have each other
Yes yes he murmured drawing
