.THE NETV NORTHWEST, THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1SS1.
I sat in the editorial sanctum (the chief was in
Europe, and consequently I had twice as much
work as usual to do), toiling through a long man
uscript, and wishing with all my heart that the
distinguished writer had seen fit to use the fa
miliar letters of the alphabet instead of hiero
glyphics of his own, indistinctly -resembling them
when there came a light tap at the door.
"Come," I called, rather sharply, for I was a
little vexed at being interrupted.
The door opened slowly, disclosing a lightly
clad much too lightly clad for a cold January
day, as I saw at a glance girlish figure standing
on the threshold. '
"Are you the editor Mr. Gray?" asked a xory
sweet, timid voice. ,
"I am," I replied. "Come' in, please."
The girl entered, closed the door, sat down in
the chair beside my desk, to which I motioned,
and said never a word. I could hear her breath
coming quickly, as though she were terribly
frightened, audi purposely went on with the un
raveling of the oriental characters before me to
give her time to recover herself; for I remem
bered with painful distinctness my own first call
upon an editor i knowing intuitively that this
was a first call), when mv heart, albeit it was a
manly one, thumped harder than it ever thumped
before or since.
At last I raised my eyes from the paper. My
visitor had thrown back her veil, from which
dripped little drops of water melted snow and
was regarding me with a wistful, beseeching
gaze. In return, I regarded her with one of as
tonishment, for hers was the sweetest and most
heart-touching face I had ever seen in my life,
and so peculiar in its beauty that I find it hard to
describe it. Big, pathetic brown eyes, with glints
of gold in them ; long, bronze-brown lashes, hair of
the palest sunshineras though moonlight and sun
shine had mingled together; slightly parted, rosy
lips, revealing a glimpse of small, white toetlf;
colorless but prettily rounded cheeks; and over
all that indescribable charm of innocence that is
to youthful beauty, to use old and well-worn
eimilies, as the bloom to the peach and the fra
grance to the rose.
"What can I do for you?" I asked, speaking
gently enough this time.
"I have a story," stammered the poor little
thing, "which I thought you might It's my
first and if you only would "
"I will look over it with pleasure," I said, as
she paused, apparently unable, from sheer nerv
ousness, to go on. "Leave it with me, and I
promise to give it my earliest attention."
As she handed me" the roll of paper, I saw she
wore no gloves, and her hands were red with
cold ; but I also saw they were as exceptionally
pretty as her face, with slender, taper-fingers, and
pink, shell-like nails.
"It is not written on very nice paper," she said,
rising, as I took the manuscript from her. "I
bad nothing but scraps of old letters, and backs of
circulars and bills; but," with a gleam of modest
pride and a glance at the hieroglyphics, "I write
very plainly, and it will not take you long to
read it. And when may I call for an answer ."
"To-morrow," said I,"without a moment's hesi
tation, though I knew I ought to devote all the
time 1 could spare from my other duties for weeks
Xo the very lengthy contribution of the distin
"Thank you ;" and she fiitted away as noise
lessly as she had entered.
But for the life of me I could not forget her.
Wherever my gaze fell, there I beheld those great
pathetic eyes, that faint golden hair, those pretty,
curved, trembling lips. "And she was cold.
Cold ! I should think so actually shivering in
that thin shawl, while I, great, strong fellow"
(looking at my heavy overcoat hanging on the
opposite wall.) "Pshaw ! you may stay there to
night." And I actually went home without it, as
though that would make the poor little girl any
warmer, and caught a severe cold in consequence,
as I might have known I would.
After this ebullition, I began the story and read
it through. It was written plainly that could
not be denied; in fact, in the way of chirography
it was all that could lie desired ; and there were
some gleams of a poetic nature ; but the plot was
so highly romantic and visionary, and the whole
thing so evidently the work of one who hail not
yet even mastered the primer of authorship, tltat
It was impossible to give it a place in the publica
tion of which I was junior editor. But never did
the necessity of saying "No !" so distress me be
fore, not even when Alveretta Strawhoru. since
known a the author of "A Riddle Solved by a
Cimeter," told me that, in spite of my rejection of
her novelettes, "the laurel wreath of fame would
encircle her brow when I was still groveling, the
ooscurest 01 tne ooscure."
I slept but little that night thinking of it.
Something told me it would almost break the
girl's heart. Should I accept it, pay for it my
self, and then consign it to the waste-basket?
2so, that would not do, for she would be anx
iously watching for its appearance in print, and
bringmorestorlesmcanwhilefor my consideration.
"What could I do ? Morning found me undecided.
When I took my place at my desk, I was still
undecided. And I had reached no decision when.
In answer to that geutle knock, for which I had
waited as I believe no editor ever waited for
would-be contributor's knock before, I again
called, "Come !" She came in, and, sinking into
the visitor's chair, raised her eyes in mute In
quiry to my face. I searched my brain for some
harmless falsehood with which tosoften the blow,
but those eves comnelled the truth.
"I have carefully read your story," I said,
"and am sorrv to sav it would not suit our paper."
The little hands went unto the face; the veil
dropped over them. I heard a stilled sigh, and
mv heart bemui to ache.
"But there is no reason. Mis Silver," I con
tinued, with assumed cheerfulness, "that, with a
few alterations, it should not suit some other. If
you will leave it with me, I will take it home to
night, revise it, and you can try again."
The veil was tossed aside, and down came the
ka"Oh,-I am so ridiculously afraid of strangers
ntiiUtranpniilaccs!" she said, a wan little smile
shining through her tears. "I should never have
dared to come here had I not heard you were one
nf fiio L-itidrcit, of men. Is there nothing you can
iriveme to do. Mr. Gray? I can read the most
Illegible writing readily a talent I inherit from
my poor dear fatjier and I can copy readily and
"Sow, I had nothing on hand which it was abso
lutely necessary that I should have copied, but a
vision of the poor child toiling up dark stairs into
cheerless offices, cold and frightened, with that
(in its present form) unsalable story, rose before
me, and I determined to make work for her until
I could find her some easy, permanent employ
ment elsewhere. So I said, quickly, as though it
were the very assistance of all others of which I
stood most in need :
"If you are willing to accept work of that kind,
I can employ you two or three hours a day for a
month or two, and you may begin at once."
Her eyes sparkled the thanks she did not speak.
I bade her lay aside her hat and shawl, seat her
self at the chiefs desk, and prepare to copy the
Chinese-like charatcrs of the famous author over
which I had been puzzling the day before.
She obeyed me with the simplicity of a child,
and soon was bending over her task, a Hush of
pleasure on her cheeks, transcribing quickly and
As for me, the sight of that tiny hand traveling
over the paper with wonderful grace and ease,
and the clear-cut profile drooping above it, caused
somo ludicrous mistakes in the article I was writ
ing, about which mistakes I received no less than
seventeen communications during the week fol
lowing its publication.
The two or three hours passed away. She
showed me what she had accomplished with
pride, accepted payment for it with a blush,
donned the Summer hat and shawl, and tripped
away, promising to come again on the morrow.
The morrow found bor punctually at her post,
and so did many morrows, and at last the MS.
was almost copied, and I had been unable to find
any other employment for my faithful amanuen
sis. Meanwhile the child had told me her sad
story. Her mother died at her birth. She had
never hud any home, but had always lived in
boarding-houses with her father, a school-teacher,
who, dying, left her to the mercy of an only rela
tive, a wealthy aunt. That aunt Heaven forgive
her ! refused to receive her, saying she had
children of her own to look after, and she saw no
reason why the girl should not follow her father's
"I tried to," said "Winona, "but the children
would not mind me. Minnie Minciette minds
me, because she loves me. I board with Mrs.
Minciette, and teacli Minnie in part payment for
my board. Mrs. Minciette is not unkind to me,
but she is not as kind as she was before papa died.
And papa used to say I wrote excellent comiHwi
tions, and so I thought perhaps I could write
stories for the papers. And I was induced to come
to you first by hearing a gentleman, a writer,
praise you very highly one day. 'He is one of the
kindest-hearted fellows in America, he said.
But, for all that, I came to your door three days
in succession before I could get courage enough to
knock. And when I did knock on the fourth day,
you called 'Come' in such an awful cross voice
that I came near running away again. And one
of those three days, when I was standing outside,
you were laughing and talking with a handsome
young lady. I heard you, and saw her. She had
the lovelleit ostrich feather in her hat."
"And what lias become of the story, Winona?"
She had rebelled n gainst "Miss Silver," or even
"Miss Winona," at an early period of our ac
quaintance, on account of my being so much
older than she. I was eight-and-twenty, and she
was ten years younger.
"My story" with a musical laugh "which
you altered "until it was your story? I sent it to
the Weekly Jtomunec Portfolio, and they accepted
it ; and well they might, for, thanks to you, it was
good indeed. And they sent me a check for it a
very short check for such a long story and there
it is !" pointing to a cloth jacket that hung beside
my overcoat. "And now that you've mentioned
the story," she continued, nil her old shyness com
ing back again, "I should like to show you but I
"Nonsense, Winona ; you are not afraid. What
"A poem of mine, if it deserves that title;" and
she pushed a jHiper across the desk to me.
I unfolded it, and read a really pretty little
poem, which, however, in spite of its prettinoss, I
round as unsuitable for our paper as the story had
been. After reading it, I sat apiarently buried in
thought, conscious that Winona was stealing a
glance at mo every now and then from under her
long lashes, but In reality puzzling my urain, as i
had a hundred times before, as to what was to lie
come of the poor, pretty, frank, innocent girl, left
alone to battle with the world.
"By Jove!" I exclaimed aloud, "it's too bad !"
"Is It o very bad?" she asked, in faltering tones.
"I wasn't referring to your ver-es, " inona.
They are very good indeed, my I should say
"And you will accept them?"
1 parried the question with another. In a Hash,
my heart had been revealed to me.
"Winona, will you write a valentine lor me; i

ittle. "Is it to be the handsome ostrich feather

day she has never been absent from my thoughts;

the little maiden grew paler and palor as she
wrote, and when she had finished I saw the hands
go half way to the saddened face, but fall again in
obedience to a will-command.
"I will write it to-night ami bring it early to
morrow," she said, "for to-morrow is St, Valen

"And I hope you'll be very happy,"
Winona, choking a risin? sob.
"But perhaps she won't have me," suggested I.
"Won't have you ?" repeated Winona, as though
such a tiling were impossible.
"She might not. But I shall soon know my
fate. Here is an envelope. Please direct it."
Winona waited with uplifted pen.
"Miss Winona Silver."
"Miss Winona Silver!"
"Miss Winona Silver. You have written a val
entine to vourself. I mean everv word of it. If
you doubt me, ad 1 'P. S.' in plainest prose, 'Will
you be my wife?'"
She confidingly placed her little hands in mine.
"You never shall write another story the long
est day you live, my darling," I said when the
ollice door fiew open, and in walked the chief.
"Mr. Ponton Miss Silver, my intended wife,"
I hastened to say, with much discomfiture, it
must be confessed!
"And now, Winona," I added, "run away home
and never come here again. I must not be dis
turbed during business hours."
"I am glad to see that you have so strict a sense
of the fitness of things," said Mr. Ponton, with a
grim smile, which led me to believe that Mr.
Warren, our scientific editor, whose desk was at
the extreme end of the long room, had hot been as
deeply absorbed in his work at times as I had
thought him to Iw.Jlarjter'x WeclUy.

The principles of the 1mih Act of 1S70 arc much
talked about but little understood. They are
briefly these: A landlord in the absence of a lease
may eject a tenant from his farm without giving
any reason ; but if he does, it is in the eyes of the
law a "disturbance," which entitles the tenant to
compensation, according to a sliding scale, in no
case exceeding seven years' rent, or a maximum
of $12o. But this only applies to tenancies under
$500 annual rental, and does not apply to any ten
ants who have leases for thirtv-five years or up
wards. The landlord may alvays eject a tenant
for non-payment of rent, but Miouhl lie do so, he
must pay him for his unexhausted improvements,
and no landlord of a farm of which the rent is over
$250 can contract himself out ol the operation of
the Act. Moreover, if the rent demanded, which
the tenant is unable to pay, and fr non-payment
of which lie lias been ejected, is in the opinion of
the court exorbitant, it will be held to be a "dis
turbance," entitling the tenant to compensation
absolutely, whether he has any unexhausted im
provements or not. In addition to tiiis, the Act
makes legal in those parts of the country in which
it already prevailed the Ulster custom, or tenant
right, which gave the tenant the right to sell the
.rood-will of the farm, even in the absence of a
lease. But thegood of this has been largely neu
tralized In practice by the landlord's right to raise
the rent on the InTOmlng tenant, and thus destroy
the value of the good-will, so that it is absolutely
necessary to establish some tribunal competent to
decide what a fair rent is.
