She bed no pew ncr maw
Ncr any blood ncr kin,
Ti thet's huccome it happened
The* we all took her in,
▲ poor, peaked little critter.
Red headed, pale an' thin.
Six boys thar wus o' we una,
An' pap he used to 'gree
The* Aye of us wus likely
As you would wish to see,
An' one of us wus slowly,
An' thet thar one wus me.
An' Jinny used to pleg me
Far bein' big an' lean.
All bands an' feet an' freckles,
The thickest ever seeu;
She J edged twos only sunburn
Kept me from lookin' green.
First off 1 didn't mind It,
Them funnln' ways of hern,
But when she took to growhp
like a slim young forest fern
An' did her hair up on top, why
Her jokes begun to burn.
I knowed I wasn't nothib'
Set off 'ginst John an' Jim,
An' Bud—well, he was sightly,
An' Ted—l looked at him.
An' sensed his chance with Jinny
Wus big an' mine wus slim.
Bo I 'lowed to never mention
How much 1 keered for her;
Cus I jedge to pine in secret
It passes easier
Then to pine with folks a-knowin'
Jest what you're piuin' fer.
I aped a friendly manner
An' talked with her right smart
About her beaux an' reckoned
She hedn't any heart.
An' one day when I said so
Her eyes flew w ide apart
In a suddlnt, cur'us fashion.
An' the blue looked wet an' she
Wus pink as any rosebush.
An' I? well, when I see
Thet blush—well, the truth is.
She's go In' to marry me!
—Era Wilder McQlasson in St. Louis Critic.
"Please indulge me in this, Fred."
"You know I object to spending the
summer in such an out of the way place,
Nora. Next winter I must go to work
again in good earnest, and I wanted a
little pleasant travel and recreation dur
ing the warm weather."
"Oh, nonsense! Berry says it's splen
did, and she ought to know, for she
spent two months there with her aunt
last summer. The nicest hotel in the
world, with a shaded terrace that over
looks a pleasant green. There are lovely
walks and drives, too, and the dearest
little lake, with a boat upon it. The vil
lage is perched upon the top of a hill,
and it's such a cool, breezy place, with
a fine view of the surrounding scenery."
"Stop and take breath, Nora!" ex
claimed Fred, putting up his hands in
dismay. "Does Berry talk like that? If
she does 1 should decline going to the
place, even if it were an Elysium."
"Oh, Berry would make a desert de
lightful! She was the dearest friend 1
had at school—a lovely little blonde,
with such beautiful hair—long and
heavy and shining, and she arranges it
so prettily I She was always the first to
adopt the new styles at school."
"Probably her father was a hair
dresser, and she assisted him when at
"Yon fibber! Her father was a wealthy
gentleman when living, and Berry is an
orphan, residing with her aunt. It's
really romantic tho way she was named
Her mother had long, beautiful hair like
Berry's, and her husband, who admired
it very much, used to call her 'Berenice'
sometimes for a pet name. Soon after
Berry's birth he died, and her mother
called her Berenice because he loved the
name. Berry used to look at her con
stellation, as she called it, every sum
mer night when the moon was not too
bright. 1 never cared for it before, it is
so dim, but now I always think about it
when I'm looking at tho stars. Come,
Fred, yon are interested in her, I know.
Be a good brother and promise me we'll
go, for I told Berry I was almost certain
"Very well, Nora. If you are sure
yon will be satisfied with the place we
will consider it settled."
Two weeks later Fred Lewis and his
sister Nora arrived at the hotel in the
little village which Nora had described as
so enchanting. Berry was immediately
notified of their advent, and was delight
ed to meet her friend. Fred, for a won
der, though he had heard her praised so
often, was not disappointed in her.
"Don't you think Berry is beautiful?"
■abed Nora of her brother upon the first
Now Fred had lost his heart already,
bat thinking "discretion the better part
of valor" looked a little bored, and an
swered, ""Well, ye—yes"—lingering on
"You know very well she is, but you
wont confess it, because I wish you to
like her," said Nora sharply.
This was quite true, for Fred loved to
tease his sister, though usually he was
very indulgent. He was a noble hearted
fellow and very handsome, and Nora
was really very proud of him.
He met Berry almost constantly, for
their two parlors were adjoining and
both opening upon the terrace, and he
soon grew very fond of her society,
though he still indulged his propensity
to tease Nora, about her.
One evening they were all sitting out
upon the terrace enjoying tho starlight
and the cool night breeze.
"Your constellation is quite distinct
to-night, Berry," Nora said.
"Yes," returned Berry, "though usu
ally it is scarcely brighter than the Milky
Fred smiled and gallantly quoted:
The glittering maze of Berenice's balr;
Forty the stars, but such as seem to kiss
Tbe flowing Creeses with a lambent name.
And Berry, feeling slightly flattered,
was very decided in the opinion that
Nora's brother was a perfect gentleman
and could be very entertaining if he
The ardor of her imagination was
somewhat dampened, however, upon the
following afternoon. She was looking
unusually charming in a dainty white
muslin, her hair a wilderness of smooth
braids and soft curls. Fred admired her
exceedingly, and rendered himself so
Tery agreeable that Nora was highly de
lighted. Berry stepped into her own
parlor a moment in pursuit of a book,
and Nora remarked, "How beautifully
Berry's hair is arranged today!" \
"Yes," remarked Fred, provoldugly
cool now the object of his admiration
was absent "Yellow hair is very ex
pensive, Pm told. I wouldn't wonder if
the mass she has on her head this after
noon cost £20."
' to cry "Fif shame!"
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 20, 1890.
when a vision of Berry in the doorway
checked her. She hail returned unper
ceived and stood half hesitating a mo
ment. Then she advanced slowly, tho
soft white train of her dress rustling in
her wake, her face crimson, her eyes
flashing, and in spite of her anger a sus
picion of tears.
"1 wouldn't take a thousaud pounds
for the hair I'm wearing today. Mr.
Lewis!" she answered.
And she was scarcely coquette enough
to hide the pain in her voice.
Fred flushed hotly, and he would have
given almost anything to be able to re
cull his words.
He rose to his feet and bowing said:
"Miss Berenice, I humbly beg your par
dan for my ill natural remark. I only
made it to tease Nora, for of course I
had no idea"
"Apologize to Nora, then, not me,"
she answered quickly, and turning left
She crept away by herself and sat
down, feeling, in spite of her efforts to
conquer the sensation, hurt and sore at
heart. Itwasnoth' \ she told herself j
she surely didn't c. what Mr. Lewis
thought about her, or said, either. And
then came a sigh as sho thought he did
not care for her, or he could never have
ridiculed her in any way, even to his
And then, though she was not vain,
she had always looked upon her hair as
a sacred birthright bestowed by her
dead mother, and had ever associated
the beautiful constellation "Berenice"
with thoughts of her mother in heaven;
a childish fancy, but it had clung to her
as childish fancies will cling to us all.
That night, before retiring, she braided
her hair in two long braids, and in the
morning she combed it out aud left it
flowing, only drawn away from her
forehead, and banded by a blue ribbon.
The braiding had made it wavy, and
it fell in bright, heavy, golden ripples,
like a mantel of "cloth of gold," far be
low her waist. Fred smiled, half tri
umphantly, when he saw it.
"I didn't dream 6he cared so much for
me," he thought.
Berry observed his peculiar smile, and
the wrath appeared on her cheeks.
"I wonder if I'm wearing my heart
upon my sleeve?" she asked herself. And
then sho told herself, in a little comfort
Not long afterward Fred sat down to
tho table and began writing letters.
Presently Berry came flying into the
"Nora!" she called in tho softest little
voice in the world, whirling around on
one foot, and carelessly tossing aside her
long hair with her hand. Out flew the
bright golden ripples, and Fred's pen
went spinning along tho carpet.
"Oh, pardon me!" she cried. "My
new wig is a little troublesome to man
age, yet I've no doubt but that I shall
become accustomed to it in time," and
away she sped, leaving Fred to pick up
his lien and resume his writing as best
This was more easily said than done,
for there was a zigzag mark over his let
ter, and as the pen had fallen on its
point it was bent nearly double. Vexed
as he was, he leaned back in his chair
and laughed heartily.
"That was gracefully done, I'll ac
knowledge," he said.
The afternoon was fine, and Lady
Eaton, Berry's aunt, called them all out
upon the terrace to view a distant moun
tain, which showed very clearly, the air
being so pure. Fred brought out his
telescope and gallantly held it while
Berry peered through with such a look
of interested curiosity one would sup
pose she had no thought for anything
this side of the mountain.
"How pretty!" she exclaimed, giving
her head a sudden toss.
Away flew a lock of hair, straight as
an archer's arrow, into Fred's eyes. He
nearly dropped the glass, and uttered
an angry exclamation in sudden pain.
"Excuse my carelessness," she said
quietly. "I had forgotten for the mo
ment you were so near."
Fred went into the house and bathed
his eyes in rather a reflective mood; but
when ho again appeared Berry seemed so
unconscious of having done anything
wrong and she was so pretty and engag
ing in manner throughout the evening
he forgot his vexation and Was as agree
able as possible.
The next day she appeared with her
hair in the same style, and Fred all the
morning was on the lookout for another
hostile attack. None came, however.
In the afternoon they went out to have
a row upon the lake. After rowing
a while Fred rested his arms and his oars
at the same time, under the pretense that
it was nicer to float slowly along. He
took out a cigar and lighted it, saying he
must make the most of it, for it was his
last. He asked for some music while ho
puffed away, and the girls began a vocal
In the midst of the song Berry took off
her hat, making an excuse to fan herself
with it. As she drew the elastic cord
suddenly from beneath it out flew her
shining hair like a glittering flag at the
head of the boat, and away went Fred's
"last cigar" into the water.
"That was too cruel!" he exclaimed;
but Berry sang on, her soft voice floating
so smoothly above Nora's alto that he
swallowed his wrath, and sat with his
eyes half shaded by his hat for fear of
another dash, and thinking she looked
aud sang like a siren of the sea.
That evening he moved his chair to a
remote corner of the terrace, at a safe
distance from Berry, and smoked his
cigar in silence, glancing meditatively
toward the two girls, who sat near
each other engaged in lively conversa
"I'm tired of this one sided warfare!"
he said to himself reflectively. "Of
course I take a lively interest in it, won
dering what sho will do next; and then
she's sure to act when I'm entirely off
my guard. I believe I'll surrender at
once and throw myself upon the mercy
of the enemy!"
Fortune seemed to favor him, for soon
after Nora rose, and, saying she prom
ised to read aloud to Lady Eaton, she
passed into the house. Berry was about
to follow her, but Fred came quickly
"Berenice," he said rather abruptly,
"will you never forgive me for that un
She turned almost coldly.
"To what speech do you refer, Mr.
Lewis? I was not aware you were an
"You cannot help knowing what 1
mean!" he cried. "And you are still un
forgiving, though I acknowledge it waa
both ungentleinanly and unkind."
She was silent for a moment, it hush
sullied to hover over her, whether from
anger or excess of emotion he could not
"I agree with you," she said con
' 't a very encouraging remark, and
h-. . It it, but was determined to have
done with suspense.
"I wish to recall what I said," he went
on hurriedly. "11l say you have the
most beautiful hair in the world; for
you have, Berry. I'll say you're an
angel, and I'll say and do anything you
desire for the rest of my natural life if
you'll only forgive me, and—be my
"I am not an angel," sho answered.
"And if you are worthy to be the hus
band of an angel you are too good for
She spoke in a cold, hard, unnatural
tone of voice, but Fred was too much
excited to notice it.
"If you will only lovo me, dear, IHI
try to be worthy of you," he said gently.
Her lips were growing unsteady, and
she set her teeth hard together.
"Don't make the attempt," she said at
last. "It would be impossible for me to
learn to love you." And she swept into
Fred began to walk tho terrace hur
"I don't understand these women," he
said, as thousands of men have said be
fore him and thousands more will say
A few moments later Nora came run
"What's the matter, Fred?" she asked.
"Here you are looking like a thunder
cloud, and Berry is in her room crying
as though her heart would break, and I
can't find out what afflicts her."
"Berry crying?" echoed Fred in aston
"Yes, indeed. Have you been quar
Fred was unable to speak from amaze
ment, and Nora began to suspect the
"I don't sco how it is with you two,"
she continued. "I know you love each
other, and yet you never agree upon any
Leaving Fred to ponder on her words
sho went into the hotel to try and comf
ort Berry, and sho succeeded so well
that before many minutes had elapsed
the two girls came out together. Berry
was anxious to show Fred how indiffer
ent she was, and the starlight told no
tales about tho evidences of tears.
"Come, Fred," said Nora, "don't sit
musing by yourself; it's awfully dull
So she gradually drew them into con
versation, and then withdrew to the op
posite end of tho terrace, making an ex
cuse to listen to some singing in tho ad
jacent rooms; and Fred, without losing
a moment of time, began tho conversa
tion where it left off before.
"Berry," he said softly, "cannot you
see how wretched I am? Do forgive
me!" ho entreated. .
"Hush!" sho exclaimed, under her
breath. "Nora will hear what you are
saying"—her heart all in a flutter.
"Whatever you may think of what 1
have done and said," he continued, drop
ping his voice a little for her sake, "1
love you dearly—dearly. And"—here a
little strategy crept in—"it almost drives
me wild to know you dislike me so
"I—l didn't say I disliked you!" And
she seemed so troubled. Fred drew
nearer and passed his hand caressingly
over her flowing hair.
"But I know you do!" —still clinging
to artifice, since its use resulted favor
ably—"l know by your manner. You
call mo Mr. Lewis, instead of Fred, and
you torment me without the slightest
compunction. You swept your hair in
my eyes yesterday and almost blinded
them. They pain me yet sometimes."
This last was an awful story and only
told for effect, but he managed to look
so miserable that, woman like, she be
lieved every word.
"I'm sorry I gave you so much pain,
Mr.—Fred," she said, in a contrite little
His heart gave a bound. He leaned
closer, very much in earnest now.
"Take pity on mo, dear," he said, ex
tending his hand.
She still hesitated, half afraid. Nora
came quickly forward, and seizing
Berry's little hand she placed it in Fred's
eager palm, and then left them together.
"Sho heard us!" gasped Berry, droop
ing her head until her face was hidden
by the bright falling hair.
Fred parted it and smoothed it back
gently with his disengaged hand, twin
ing it tenderly around his fingers and
drawing her head to his breast.
"No matter, my darling," he said.
"We won't cvare if you only love me,
and yon must give me tho right to call
you mine, all mine, before the world
very soon!" —New York World.
