Later in the day, when he was
free froni pain and able to talk she
came to him with luminous eyes
I've sent for the minister, Fred,
and he'll be here soon to marry
"Oh! no," cried the 'man.
A shamed flush covered her
face. "I wanted to keep you here
ajid take care of you, and you
know how people will talk. I
thought you would not mind just
a few days sooner." '
"It's not that, sweetheart. It's
just that I know I'm not fit for
you. We ought to wait until I
can do better in a business way.
I want you bad enough, but
you're giving everything, and I
worse than nothing. There are
some things I ought to tell you "
She interrupted him decisively.
"No, I don't believe I want to
know about things before 'I knew
you. Of course our ways are dif
ferent. But I know you'll be good
to me, and that's enough."
"Then," he said, "tell that bless
ed parson to hurry up. If you'll
take me and trust me I'llmake
good. I swear it, my girl."
So they were married, and after
the minister had left them she
whispered the secret that she had
known for two weeks, that of the
legacy left her by her uncle. "Now
we'll be happy together," she said.
"Yes," he said, and it was a
vow. "We will."
