I was always her boy-lover. Can't

the day when 1 first went to Beech
wood as my uncle's ward, and stood
an awkward, blushing, stammer
ing school-boy of 15 in the pres
ence of the: incipient belle and bean-ty-f-can't

that hour, bnt I was her slave her

flirt, and the romping,
aydenigh schoolgirl companions
sfce'd always have stopping at Beech
aiood on visits didn't I make my
self a target for all kinds of practical
jokes from those same romps?
'And Jenny herself wasn't she
ike ringleader of Jbem all ? Didn't
she beg to do table honors, on pur
pose to pot salt in my tea, and pep
:per my muffins, in order to watch
my wry faces ? Didn't she play tan
talizing walltes every evening in the
parlor, regretting so much that
Cousin Ned didn't dance?' Didn't
she ask me to read aloud at the vil
lage sewing-circle, and,., upon my
biakfjll refusal, gjvffly anaoaace to
scores of assembled old ladies 4bat
'Mr. Wilder was afflicted with bron
chitis,' purposely to render me the
victim of those same old ladies, who
forthwith thronged arouBd me with
recipes composed of all the roots and
herbs in Christendom? I tell you,
Phil, it was almost purgatory to me
there at Beechwood ; but 1 resolved
never to surrender.
'But it bothered me most that
Jenny could torment me so. I was

one touch of her little white hand
would set my heart to thumping
against my ribs ! The contact of her
floating curlsi would make'my frame
tingle to my fingers' ends. That's
what I call, a galvanic battery.
'Well, I came off with college hon
ors at 20, and, went home to Beech
wood. Uncle Dick shook my .band
till he wrung tears (of pain) from
my eyes, and called me a brave boy
aad an honor to the Wilders ; Aunt
Mary got out the best china, and
petted me like a grown-up baby ;
but Jenny danced before me, ridi
culing my newly-fledged beard, call
ing, every pet hair I had been assid
uously cultivating for the past few
months 'pin-feathers,' vowed I hadn't
graduated, but -was expelled, and
hoped I wasn't going to stop at
Beechwood long, for she'd invited
her dear friend. Serapbine Love to
pass the summer moBths with her,
aad I should only prove a 'torment'
'Serapbine Love came a tall, tal-low-caBdle,
stiff curie, light blue eyes, lackadais
ical, .moon-struck air. There was no
similarity between her and Jenny,
and I fell to. wondering about their
mutual liking, and soon discovered
the -.cause.' Serapbine Love wrote
poetry, rhyme, and leveled her Par
nassian darts against those whom
Jenny disliked this was the secret.
She had been sent for to 'do up'
Coasia. Ned in verse, and various
were the sonnets, acrostics and lam
poons with which I was favored.
They greeted me everywhere. On
my chamber table, in my portfolios,
between the covers of my Greek
lexicon, even in the pockets of my
'dressing-gown I found them. In no
place was I safe.
'Had I been particularly sensitive,
I must have been driven from the
field; but I withstood them.' Be
side, there was "a reason, other than
any resolve to seem iBdifferent. Of
late I thought I had detected be
neath Jenny's gayety an under-current
of feeling ; sometimes, looking
up suddenly, I had caught the glance
of two blue eyes and, though 'speed
ily withdrawn, fcould have vowed
that glance bad somethiag earnest,
almost tender in it, quite belying

the most approved fashion.'
'Zounds ! (bat was a drop top much

wounded pride, on the impulse, of
the moment I pushed open the door
of the room. The two girls sat at a
window in the mooalight. I went
up close to Jeuny.
'Miss Wilder,' I said (and, Phil, I
must have fairly got into the heroics,
for she wilted under my eye and
sunk. down iu her seat), Miss Wilder,
this hand you have wounded you

you shall yet touch with your lips.

'A sound smote on my ear as. 1
shut the, door behind me, but wheth

went straight to my room packed
my trunks found Uncle Dick in his
library, and took my resolve, audr
before Jenny and her 'dear friend'
had made their appearance next
morning, I was miles away from
'In three years I had gained my
profession, and during that time had
never once visited home. Letters,
roany.iaud kind, came from Uncle
Dick and Aunt Mary, but never a(
word from Jenny. I heard'of- ber
eftenAaA belle aad heaaiyiaad flirt!
since she invariably rejected all
serious1 wooers. That latter item
pleased me strangely, and 'straight
way 1 fell 'into becoming the devot
ed cavalier of.Kate Drew, a dashing.
belle, whose father counted bis prop
erty by thousands, and in my letters
home I was always careful to speak
of 'Miss Drew, the beautiful heiress.'
'Urgent invitations came from
Beechwood to visit the old place;
but I put them off. 'Business before
pleasure,' I urged in return. 'Coke
and Blackstone", and Kate Drew,
detained me,'' so, I wrote to Uncle
Dick'. En passant, let me mention,
Phil, that Kate was engaged to an
old college mate of mine in Italy, the
last two years, and you will perceive
the drift of our plans.
'One item in Uncle Dick's letters
pleased me more than fatherly ad
vice or invitations, to Beechwood.
Jenny,' he "wrote, Jhas just refused
the best match in the country your
old chum, Presley Edwards, a thriv
ing young physician rich, too, and
belonging to one of the finest fami
lies in the country. I believe the
girl has burned her fingers this time ;
but she is as headstrong as ever. By
the way, nephew, did you and she
quarrel before you left us? She
floutB like a very shrew when your
name is mentioned. What's the
matter nephew ? .Better come, back
and settle up old scores ; for, though
Jenny's the least bit contrary, she
has the best heart.' So Uncle Dick
'And you went back to Beech
wood ?' said Phil.
'Not I,' replied Ned, smiling; 'I
knew the time badn t come. I wrote
him, that I was off for a foreign tour,
departed the following week, and
not till fifteen months after did I set
foot in. Beechwood again.
'It was as I expected. Jenny was
still unmarried, and. flirting desper
ately as ever. But faith, I didn't
recognize the tall, queenly woman
who received me with such cold
stateliness in Beechwood drawing-
room. .Not a trace or tnenoydemsn,
mischief-loving school-girl I had
left more than five years ago.
'Many gentlemen came ' to the
house, and she danced, sang, played
and flirted with them all, but not a
pin did she care for one of them.
'But did she care for me still?' I
couldn't tell. Her old gayety of
manner was all gone ; she was cour
teously, chillingly polite but never
affable or familiar;, polite nothing
more. Every approach to intimacy
was repelled.,- She seemed building
higher, day by day, the icy wall
between us. -
'Well, so it went on for weekaand
weeks Jenny chatting and playing
the agreeable to all others, bat de
cidedly icebergy, toward me. I was
in tortures; this must come to aa
'One night we were left together

took ap a night-lamp. Good-night,'
she said..,: ..
'My tiaac bad come; 'No it is

band. 'Good-by f she, said, aad she
glanced up inqairiagly; 'I Mr.
Wilder, I.doa't understand yonl'.she
exclaimed. 'Perhaps not,' I said, in
differently. 'It is only this I am to
leave Beechwood by the morning
stage, and shall not see you so early.'
'Leave Beechwood T and she slight
ly faltered, looking surprised, and
replacing the lamp on the table. 'I
did not know bad not thought
that is, you make us a short visit,
cousin,' she stammered. It was-the
first time she bad called me cousin.
'And why should I prolong it, Mies
Wilder?' I asked, 'since, at least, one
here does not desire ray presence ?'
Going over to her I took her hand.
'Cousin Jenny,' I said, I can plainly
see that I am nn welcome here. You
shun me, and I am going back to
town. So it must be good-by, cous
in. You will think kindly of me
sometimes ?' There was no answer.
I heard a bard-drawn breath but
pride crushed it back. She dropped
my hand, and again took up the
lamp. 'Good-by, then,' she said,
mechanically, turning away. I held
open the door to give her egress
She' advanced a step into the hall,
hesitatedthen came back. The door
swung to. 'Cousin Edward,' she
said, and her voice slightly trem
bled, 'you have thought mo proud
and cold wanting in the duties of
hospitality, even. I acknowledge
that 1 have seemed, so ; but, you,
cousia-'-you have you not neglect
ed us all these long years?; ;Did you
not go away ejfgryy.aao'abybtikc
down. 'Jenny, let bygoaes be by
gones,' I said, maguaaimoasly, act
ing my part to perfection. '1 have
hoarded up no anger. On the con
trarybut no matter. You will
come and visit me in .my new home
some time? One of these days I am
going to be - married. Good-by,
.cousin,' and I passed my arm about
her. 'Let me? go, Edward Wilder
release me this instant I' she said.
'Let me go, 1 tell you.'
Zounds, 5 Phil; yon should have
seen her black eyes flash ! She abso
lutely stamped her foot with passion,
and struggled hard; but I held her
tightly. 'Let me go! Your lady
love shall know of this I' she cried,
with flushed cheek ui tears of an
ger.' 'Ob; Kate Drew isn't ihe least
bit jealous,' I laughed, smoothing
down her cnrls. 'Don't struggle so !
Beside, I want to tell you something.
I do intend to marry one of these
days, but no other than her I have
always loved, and who, if I mistake
not, does not wholly bate me I Jen
ny, look up and tell me if you will
send me away from1' Beechwood I'
Just at that' moment, as the lamp
burned low and flickered in dusky
shadows, a sigh, soft as a summer
zephyr, stole athwart' my cheek, and
two warm, fragrant lips fluttered
like rose-leaves against mine. Not
a word was spoken, and there was
little need. But just the very spirit
of mischief prompted me to whisper
'Jenny, my vow is fulfilled. You
remember it? Didn't I warn you
that I'd appropriate this hand? and
for the Vest, the kiss for the blow,
'And' Jenny answered never a
word,' added Ned, smiling, 'for the
witch was fairly caught in her own
'But Kate Drew!' queried Phil,
taking a long whiff at his cigar.
'Ob, Tom Ashley came home,' re
plied Ned, 'and in a fortnight they
are to be married. But she's prom
ised, to go down to Beechwood first,
to be Jenny's, bridesmaid.'
'And Seraphine Love ?' asked Phil.
'Is Serapbine Love still,' replied
Ned, 'lackadaisical, sentimental and
devoted to the Nine as, ever- She's
got a volume of poems in the press
'BHxbied Buds,' or some sach
pathetic title. Jenny and I have
subscribed for fifty copies to distrib
ute among our friends as literary
bijoux! But enough! Consider
yourself held by au engagement at
Beechwood Ihis'day week, to kiss
the bride aad eat weddiag-cake.'
It is .one of tire uoexplaiuable
things of moral ethics how people
decide so promptly as to how little
rain and bad weather it takes to keep
them away from prayer-meet iag, aBd
how much is required to keep them
away from a good show.
