Mr. Bumble Timothy Bumble,
bachelor from Spadunk sat in his
room, the very picture of despair.
That morning he had arrived at
the mansion of his newly-married
brother, on a visit of a week or two.
He had felt some presentiment of
evil from the time he began to talk
of making the visit; somethinghad
impressed him with a vague fcense
of danger. As he ascended the
steps that morning he had not
dreamed -what the danger consisted
in, nor how very near, it was.
Now he knew.
"It's a widow!" groaned Mr.
Bumble. "A widow !"
Evidently Mr. Bumble hadn't
any particular love for widows.
"Here I am, an innocent, unsus
pecting man," went on Mr. Bum
ble, dolefully. "John who's put his
foot in it by getting married, in-
I vjtes medowu to see now mucii
like fools he and his wne rau uui,
,wi t isL-n o wl pjime down. I
hardly step rav foot inside the door
before Jplm tens " Vs -"some
one eKe coming his dear
Belinda's M-ter, a widow, and Mich
a nice woman, and I see through it
all in a minute. It's all a plot!
They've got me down here for her
to marry ! Ye.-, for her to marry."
Mr. Bumble shivered at the
thought. He was in a cold sweat all
"And now she's here!" Mr.
Bumble shook his fNt at something
in the corner an imaginary wid
ow, probably; ".she's here, and I'll
be persecuted and pestered from
morning till night. She knows
what John and his wife have got in
to their heads, and is willing to
help 'em along in their wickedness.
Twish," Mr. Bumble waxed warm
in his gestures with his earnestness
on the subject, "I wish there was a
law abolishing widow, I do, T
swear I do."
"Bravo for you, Tim !" laughed
his brother John, sticking his head
in at the door. "I'll tell you how
you can begin the reform ami abol
ih this one. Jut marry her!" and
John withdrew, laughing.
"Yes, you've made a fool of your
self hy getting married, and want
other folks to, on the principle that
'misery loves company," declared
Mr. Bumble, blowing ins nose ex
plosively. "Of course the first
thing when I go down they'll in
troduce me. Hang it all, I wish
I'd stayed at home. It does make
me out of patience to see people
make such -fools out of themselves."
John oame back pretty soon.
,'JAro you ready to go down ?" he
"Yd, I s'pose so," answered poor
Mr. Bumble, not very graciously.
"But I'll tell you what It is, John,
I'll not marry her."
. . . . ..11 1,-WT
Jolin laughed ouirignt. "iou
" to thinfc that gettllltf
have hannen to him. I think it
about the bet."
"Yes, you," exclaimed Mr. Bum
ble, explosively. "Of course you'll
say bo now; but wait just wait!'
very solcivnily and with awful im
presslveuesa, "Well, I'll wait," replied John.
"Come on, if you're ready."
Mr. Bumble groaned and followed
his brother down like a lamb led to
the sacrifice. He began to tremble
before he reached the parlor door.
He remembered, afterward, of see
ing something in the shape of a
woman rise up as they entered, the
j-ooin, and of hearing John say,
"Mrs. Blake, my brother Timothy."
And the shape swooned down upon
him like a hawk upon a dove, and
for ten minutes thereafter all was a
When ho regained lus scattered
senses it always served him in the
snmr. tenv to ha introduced to a wc-
I man, especially a widow she was
talking away at an awmi rate, anu
he was sitting before her with his
hands folded meekly, in becoming
resignation, -rt first ho didn't daro
to look at her; but after his first
awe began to subside he stole a
glance or two at her. The invest!,
gation made him tremble. She
wasn't one of your cooing, gentle
widows, but one of the strong mind
ed class. He felt sureof.it. And
by-aud-by how, he never knew
she began to talk woman's rights.
"I do think," declared Mrs.
Blake, layjng her hand on Mr.
Bumble s knee by the way of em
phasis, and causing the poor man to
flinch terribly, "I do think that wo
poor females have rights which you
nmn 9i lmund to resnect. Mrs.
"Blake looked straight at Mr. Bum
ble as she said this, as if daring him
4r 1nii if
"Undoubtedly," rc-ponueu -wr.
Bumble, feebly", feeling that some
thing was expected of him.
"Yes, undoubtedly," rppeatcd
Mrs. Blako, "I think "you are'feensi
ble in making that admission, Mr.
Bumble, and I like you for it."
Mr. Bumblo wished he had said
that they had more rights now than
they knew how to take care of, but
he knew that he hadn't moral cour
age to say any such thing. The
widow kept him there all the after
noon. It was a torment to him, but
he c-mld'ntget awaj.
"Dear !" exclaimed the poor man
that night, in the solitude of his
chamber, "I'm afraid she'll got me
cornered up and marry me."
His sleep was haunted with
widows. One leaned down from the
hca'dbourd to pull his Ijalr, and one
shook her fist at him from the foot
boardwhile another leaned over me
side of the bed, and requested him,
in dulcet tones, to kiss her. That
woke Mr. Bumble up, and not an
other wink of sleep did he get that
. "Oh, Mr. Bumble!" cried the
widow at breakfast, "Belinda says
they have the prettiest view from
the hill bevond tho meadow, and I
"want to see it. Won't you go with
me this morning ?"
Poor Mr. Bumble consented, be
cause he didu't dare tq dootuer'
"I'm in for i(," he groaned, as he
went up stairs to get his duster. "1
hope she won't propose before we
gpt hack, if sho should "
Mr.' BumblGwas horrified at the
prospect. He never had thought
of such a thing before. But
tins widow was strougminded
and believed in "rights." Might
rjot the righ.t to propose be one of
them? And if sho should propose
he knew ho never should dare to
to say no.
If ever any one deserved cannon
izatiou as a martyr, Mr. Bumble
did that day. Every hour was a
week, and sho insisted on dragging
him about the whole forenoon. At
last she was ready to go home, and
tho poor bachelor began to revive
aa me distance oetween mem and
the house grew loss.
As they were returning across a
pasture a cow which had been feed
ing in the further corner saw them
and camo running toward them.

from tho widow, who, he was
afraid, contemplated a raid on hlra
under the plea of fright. "Shoo,
The cow didu't choose to "shoo,"
tbut came nearer.
"Oh !" shrieked Mrs. Blake, fling
her arms about the poor man, "save
-" -i L ,.'
- - M M " "" -
"You old brute!" exclaimed Mr.
Bumble, making a terrible effort to
free himself from the widow's
clutches; let us hope fin the sake of
his-galantry, that his exclamation
has reference to the cow. "You
old brute ! I see if you'll stand there
shaking your head at me!" and
thereupon he charged at the ani
mal so furiously that she made an
"HowshallT ever repay y"?
cried the widow. "I feel that 1
owe you my life, and my hfe-long
gratitude is yours!"
"Don't," said Mr. Bumble, evi
dently greatly touched at her exhi
bition of gratefulness. "'Taint
worth speaking about." .
"I wish you'd let me lean on your
arm " said Mrs. Blake faintly ; "I
feel so weak. I can hardly walk.
I don't know but I shall faint.
Mr. Bumble was aghast at the
prospect of a fainting widow on his
hands. He grabbed off his straw
hat and began to fan her furiously.
Presently she said that she felt bet
ter, and took possession of his arm,
and they set out for home, which
was reached after many halts and
much suffering orf-the part of Mr.
"It's getting desperate," said the.
persecuted man to himself as he re
viewed the events of the. day and
looked the situation boldly in the
face. "A widow'll bring things to
a crisis in no time. I wish I was
going home to-morrow."
The next evening there was a
party at a neighbor's, and John and
Belinda and Mrs. Blake and Mr.
Bumble attended. Mr. Bumble
supposed, as it was such a short dis
tance, that they would all walk
home together ; but Belinda got a
chance to ride, and consequently
Mr. Bumble was left to the painful
duty of seeing the widow home.
"Such abeautiful night," she de
clared, as "clinging closer than a
brother," they sallied out. "How
forcibly I am reminded of the time
when dear Mr. Blake walked home
with me from a party before we
The widow gave signs of being
about to dissolve into tears. Mr.
Bumble could stand anything better
than tears, and he made a desperate
eilbrt to ward oft" the threatened ca
lamity. "Have j'ou ever been to Spa
dunk?" he asked, grasping at the
first idea that came into his head'
as drowning men clutch at straws.
"I'd like to have you come up,"
said Mr. Bumble, at a loss to think
ofanvthlng else to say, and deter
mined that the conversation should
not revert to the dear departed Mr.

Bumble?" asked the widow, smil
ing into his face. "You men are
so so fond of testing us poor wo
men, you know, that we can hardly
ever tell when you are in earnest.
But I do believe you're in earnest,
this time. I would like to como up
and see you, I assure you,"
"I put my foot in t this time,"
groaned the baohelor. "She'll pro
pose boforo we get home." Then
aloud, ho added, "Yes, I'd like t
have you and Belinda come up and
stay as long as you like."

throat, and produced only an unln

"I I didn't say it," exclaimed
the sutlering man, driven to desper
ation. "You you misunderstood
"Oh, 1 did? Exouso me, do,"
E leaded the widow; how could I
ave been so mistaken ?"
Mr. Bumble didn't remen-ber the
incidents of tho walk very clearly
when he reached home. He tried
to shake her off at the parlor door,
but she wasn't to begotridofln
"Come in and-sit down,Mr. Bum
ble, do," she urged. And Mr. Bum
ble, cursing lim&elf all the while
for being su'oh a fool, allowed her to
draw him into the parlor, after the
fashion of the fly and the spider,
and there he sat and suffered for
three mortal hours. More than once
i. tiirtiirrlil- tho Imimrlnnt moment
had come and that she was about to
propound the awful question. But
something Providence, he called
it helped him to avert the awful
fate with which must have been his
if she had spoken," and. he congratu
lated, himself "as he reaohed his
chamher'tliat ho was still spared to
freedom a little while.
He went to bed and dreamed.
He thought Mrs. Blake came and
informed him that she was going to
marry him the next day at precise
ly half-past ten. It was terribly
real. Ho woke up in a cold and
clammy perspiration. Hours passed
iwftra Vinslpnrstnd then he dreamed.
This time he thought that he ran
away to escape his awful doom, and
the widow followed him and over
took him. "Oh, you naughty
man !" she cried, putting her arms
around his neck; "you foolish
man ! to think you could get way
from a, woman so easily, when
she'd made tin her mind to marry
you." And then she fell to kissing
him, and he woke up with a
scream and found himself sitting
bolt upright in bed, with, a pillow
clutched r bs hands as a defense
against bis persecutor. He got up
and dressed himself.
"I'm going to get out of this," he
groaned. "I won't stay another
day for any monej. It ain't safe."
Ten minutes afterward some one
knocked at John's chamber doQTt
"Who's there?" he demanded.
"Mo-TJmoihS-," answered Mr.

to find out what the matter was,

"Tain't no use," saul Mr- B,um
resojutely; "I wouldn't stay for
anything. I'm gojng now. Take
caro of yourself. Good-by," and
Mr. Bumble was off.
He half expected to be overtaken
hy the widow, and didn't feel safe
t jll he had reached home,

the old housekeeper, as she got him
something to eat, "You look, all

this may be set down as one of the
dull days of the season.
