Then Nellie waited, expecting an
explosion every day. Having se
cured their deed the schemers were
taking their leisure. One day Mr.
Mercer appeared.
"By the way, Miss Ward," he
spoke, after a warm, friendly greet
ing, "I notice in the weekly paper a
transfer of the swamp tract."
"Yes, sir," replied Nellie, her
breath coming quick, "I spld it to
those clients, Marvin & Sharp."
"But they were to have the upland
acres."
"They think they have got them."
explained Nellie. "They are swin
dlers, for they intercepted a letter of
fering you a large amount. Oh, Mr.
Merceri I have tried to protect you.
I hope I have not done wrong," and
bursting, into tears, Nellie told all.
''You are going to blame me!" she
sobbed, as she looked up to find his
.eyes fixed upon her. .
"I am lost in admiration!" cried
Jarvis Mercer. "I need a guardian, as
you have proved. Miss Ward Nel
lie, could it be possible that you would
accept such a responsibility per
manently?' "I love you so I love you so!" was
all Nellie could whisper, sheltered in
those strong, protecting arms.
EXACTLY SO!
"Don't -you consider my views on
the question sound?"
"Well, yes; mostly sound."
PROPHESY
By Berton Braley.
When I am old I shall be through with
dances,
With romps and gallops of my
younger days;
I shall not joy in a maiden's roguish
glances,
Which now will set my .youthful
heart ablaze;
The music of the players will not
stir me, v
Who now am full of tunes and gay
and bold,
The weight of jrears from action will
deter me,
When I am old.
When I am old I shall not seek for
glory,
I shall not trail Adventure to. its
lair,
But sit, with nodding head and locks
grown hoary,
Dozing and mumbling in my easy
- chair;
I shall not care for fun- or fight or
drinking
Or any of youths's fqjlies mani
fold I shall sit quiet by the hearthside,
blinking, r
When I am old.
When I am old I shall not care for
pleasure
Or dreams-of fame or honors, great
or small;
But now Life Qffers me a brimming
measure
And I would know the savor of
it all;
Of work and fight and love so that
hereaftep.
When age comes on and all the songs
are sung
I shall recall" how life was full of
laughter
When I was young!
