THE SOUANTON TRIBUNE-WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 30, 1807:
m Rome Reading Circle
The Mischief of a Flirt and
m The Folly of a Fool :
iii ' T
(U Margaret Stewart Sibley, In the Springfield Republican. ))
"You poor darling!" Itollo snlil,
'You must not ha unhappy. Why need
you be, when I love you bo dearly.
"Do you really? I I can't believe
It," she protested, without the least
touch of coquetry. Rollo'a earnestness
Impressed and awed her. Tho thought
that It waa wronc did not oorao Into
her shallow little head. Moro kisses
and assurances of devotion followed.
Iveora thought It very delightful, yet
she doubted. "You will get tired of
me. Mn always talk like that, at
first," and she began to cry. Itollo
repeated his panacea, for tears, and
vowed again and again to be true to
But why detail the rest of the con
versation? Tho final result was as un
expected to them as to us, who aro
watching and criticising them. At
least, that Is what they both declared
afterward! That "afterward!" That.
Is a part of the "way" which Is so hard
In the meantime our serpent crawled
laway with a well-satisfied grin on his
countenanco (If a serpent can Iks paid
to have a countenance). But neither
Rollo nor Leora thought of this In the
Intoxication of their Joy. As for Leora,
she was soon packing her trunk (even
nt such a crisis she could not find it in
her heart to leave her finery behind),
and getting Into a fashionable travel
ing gown, and telling the servant girl
that Bhe "had been called away for a
week or so to mo a sick friend. And
Nora might get her brother Mike, the
stable boy, to stay with her until Mr.
Hungerford returned. Yes, Mr. Bently.
was g61ng to take her to the train."
Mike took the trunk on a wheellKirrow,
but carne back in the buggy alone.
"An' sure Mister Bently said, he wns
to wait for tho train. More like he'll
be afther goln' too," ho said to his
"Hould yer tongue! What Is It you do
be sayln' of the mtshtres3?" cried No
ra sharply. Yet all the Fame, she sus
pected the true state of affairs. And
the next morning retailed her suspic
ions to the nearest neighbor: who In
turn, mentioned It to the next and so
on, until the whole of Corinth were
soon in possession of the main facts,
as well as of much that was Imagin
ary. The main facts only were Imparted
to Mr. Hungerford on his return. As
for the fleeing sinners, nothing was
heard from them. They seemed to
have drbpped lntoi the earth,
Mrs. Bently's return preceded that
of Mr. Hungerford. She wondered
why her house was still and shut; as
she had wondered at not hearing from
her husband. And there was no hus
band there to greet her. Doubtless he
had been called away on business. But
to all her inquiries, the neighbors only
returned evatlvo nnswers; on stated
that they had heard some one say
that they guessed Mr. Bntly was out
of town! Whore he had gone no one
seemed to know. He had told some
one that he "would be back In a week
or so." But everything was so hazy
and uncertain. Ballled, but too proud
to confess her fears to the gaze of the
curious, she waited with unformed mis
givings, which she dared not look in
the face. The Hungprfords were both
absent also; and when Nora said that
she "expected them back In a few
days," Sara misunderstood and sup
posed that they had gone away to
gether. And this thought lifted a
nameless weight from her heart. Nora
had lacked tho courage to tell her
what the whole town suspected. Nor
Indeed, had any one more than poor
Nora. Some bolder spirits made the
attempt, but confronted by that palo
wife with the sorrowful, brown eyes,
they weakly broke down and said in
stead, that "Mr. Bently would surely
write. Either lie or a letter will como
soon." And the loyal wife answered,
hiding her fears. "Oh yes, he will
come soon. Perhaps there will be a
letter tonight. And then they went
away and reported that Mrs. Bently
was going era-ay. And some shook
their heads pityingly, and some smiled.
And others went to see her, to see if
It was true!
Day followed day; and night fol
lowed night. And every night Sara
promised her two little children, as she
undressed them, that "papa will come
tomorrow!" I think If Rollo could have
heard her, orvtl.em, he would have felt
tliat his punishment was greater than
he could bear!
Her pillow was tear-w9t and sleep
less. She did not fear an. accident so
much; although she did think of It.
She could not dispossess herself of the
premonition of worse trouble. And
then she took herself to task fpr her
suspicions when Rollo might be Inno
cent. It was left for Mr. Hungerford
to enlighten hrr. Tho men of Corlntb
were not so reticent as the women and
they had frankly told him what they
knew. Nora's story corroborated it
He became satisfied at length that
the truth was simply that Rollo and
his wife had gona off together. But

not until he had visited the Braytons
and mntfa every possible Inquiry did ho
seek the deserted wife. Ho rang her
doorbell one evening. She did not
sreak, but gave her hand In silence.
She led the way to her little sitting
room. She was alone, for she kept no
servant, nnd her children were asleep
in the next room. She controlled her
self suillcicnlly to offer him a chair.
But ho could see that she was deadly
pale and trembling violently. He fear
ed she would fnlnt.
"You would better sit down, Mrs.
Bently," he said kindly. "You do not
1ck1c well. I wish to talk with you
about about "
"About Rollo?" she interrupted.
"Have you heard? Is he dead? Wha6
"Your husband Is alive and well, I
think: But I have reason to think In

It was out now, A brutally frank
statement, ho thought, and yet, he had
tried to break it gently! Mrs. Bently
neither spok? nor moved. A marble
statue could not have be:m whiter.
At last, she spoke huskily with an ef
fort as If speech hurt her.
"I have been afraid of this for
Mr. Hungerford looked at her sadly,
but he did not speak.
It was the first confession she had
ever made of her husband's defection
and the words sounded strange even
to herself. After a long pause, In which
the clock ticked loudly, "What can we
do? AVhat must I do? Oh! how could
they! I am so sorry for you," she
added, seeing the silent misery of his
"Oh, Rollo! Rollo! " sho moaned,
nearly breaking down, but controllng
herself by a mighty effort. Surely had
the culprits seen these two, they might
have learned that we cannot live, or
sin, or suffer for ourselves alone.
It wns hard to advise her, when he
did not know what was best to be done
himself. But Sara Bentley was no
cowardly, helpless creature. She soon
decided that Mr. Hungei ford's plan
was the wise one. "To wait In silence
and let the fugitives report what they
chose. They probably would do so
soon," he said. Rollo was supposed to
have very little money. They did not
know about the legacy. Rollo had not
told his wife or anyone. By dint of
skilful questioning he knew from Sara
the unwilling admission that she was
nearly penniless, and. he persuaded her
to allow him to loan her a sum of
money; taking the horse nnd buggy for
security, to appease her pride.
She refused to leturn to her parents
"No," she said, "This Is my home, I
will stay here until Rollo comes back
to me. He will soon!"
"I hope so for your sake," Mr. Hun
gerford said, as he bade her "Good
night." Of that lonely nlght-wntch of heart
breaking sobs, and tears, and agony,
no one knows but tho poor, wronged
wife. No one can guess even, save
those who have walked In a like valley
of despair and humiliation. But Sara
had unusual courage and there were
her children, little Frank and Lulu;
who soothed her with their loving prat
tle; but anon tore her heart by de
mands for "papa."
"How could ho have deserted them?
I never could," she said.
"Because you have the true 'mother
heart,'" answered a kindly soul.
"Some fathers have It; some mothers
have It not!" Was ever a truer word
spoken? Friends In the church and
out of it rallied round her. She ob
tained work from a tailor to do at homo
In the busy season, and when that was
not to "be had, knitted and crochetted
for a fancy store, developing won
deiful talent, hitherto unexercised.
Whenever Mr. Hungerford could assist
her without her knowledge, or other
people's either for that matter, he did
It. So she lived; until more than three
years had slipped away Into the unre
She was startled one day by tho tid
ings brought her by a neighbor that
Mr. Hungerford had sought, and ob
tained a divorce from I-eora. Ho had
given her up then, at last. And Rollo?
Must she stop hoping for his return?
Her friends expostulated, urged and
entreated. And, at last she yielded;
and she too, applied for a dlvoice; and
had no difficulty In obtaining one. But
she would not resume her maiden
"No," she Bald, "I am Mrs. Bently
to myself even. I will keep the name
for my children's sake. I have not
disgraced It" she added proudly. It
wus the first harsh word sho had said.
And presently so strange Is real, ac
tual life a curious thing happened.
It certainly would bo unbelievable If
invented. She had not had her di
vorce many monthB beforo she was as
tounded by the news that Leora hud
returned to her husband. It did not
Beem possible, but it was true. And,
really, when you como to think of it,
the only wonder was that the poor
butterfly had not fluttered back Into
the warmth and sunshine sooner.
It was a. poor, drenched butterfly,
with broken wings, that fell at Mr.
Hungerford's feet one evening, us he
eat in his lonely parlor. There were
tears and sobs and broken pleadings
for pardon, and promises for the fu
ture, until the man's heart relented;
and together they sought vtho parson
age and told their strange story to the
minister and his wife. He asked them
many questions. Questions which it
was humllatlng to Ijeora, to answer.
Sho had remained with Rollo only a
few months, when they mutually
agreed to separate; she went to some
of her mother's relatives in a western
state. They were Quakers, and, while
they condemned her courso, they gave
her a home. Their Influence had at
last awakened her soul, and by their
advice she had returned to her hus
band. She brought letters from them
which corroborated her story.
Tle good pastor gave them much ex
cellent advice, und then he married
them oyer again. And Corinth was
shaken from center to circumference
when the tidings flow from mouth to
mouth th next day. "Itollo and Ms
wlfo will bo surprising you, also, some
of these evenings by a request to bo
spliced again," aald a wag to the min
ister. "No, I do not think so," tho worthy
man replied. "Rollo would be ashamed
to show his face in Corinth: but even
If ho came bock, Mrs. Bently is a wo
man of too much good sense to marry
Doubtless the preacher thought that
ho v.aa u true prophot, 01 well as a
good Judge of human nature. And it
Is, perhaps, a trite saying that "It Is
tho unexpected that happens." Per
haps, that will account for the fact
that In less than six months there
after, not only had Rollo Bently shown
his face In Corinth, but he had como
to stay. Nay, more; he and Sara wero
remarried, at tho uarsonage, by the
pastor. So little do wo know what
may happen I
, "There wns nothing else to do," tho
minister said when rallied. "I really
think Rollo is truly repentant; and I
hepe that Sara may be happy nt last."
The church seemed to bo of the same
opinion, for after a proper profession
of sorrow nnd repentance, both prodi
gals (though at different times), were
forgiven and received back Into mem
bership. And it did not take many
months for most of the people to call
upon them, as a sort of notice that they
were to Up taken back Into Boclotv.
They ceased to discuss them ns soon
as something else happened, fresher
and moro Intersting. But If ever prod
igals were made welcome and were en
couraged to walk In the straight path,
these two were.
Doubtless It was not always a pleas
ant or an easy one. No one ever knew
what had passed between Rollo and his
wlfo; but they seemed to bo satlslled.
Ho took up his business with a vigor
that promised well for the future. Of
course, his friends helped him, since It
is hard work to fall Into the procession
As for tho other culprit she recovered
her bloom and brightness, and by the
tlmo sho had given birth to three chil
dren sho seemed such a different Leora
that people could hardly believe that
she had ever so forgotten her honor and
And yet and yet there are at times a
fine Impalpable something In people's
manner; In the avoidance of certain
topics In her presenco that gave her a
pang In her gayest moments, nnd she
saw her three pretty little daughters
throug'h a mist of tears. She thought
with a shudder, what If they should
ever know! But a sick terror overcame
her what if one of them And men say
there Is no punishment for sin!
But all this is an "old number," In
Corinth. Not many people, In the best
society, that Is, remember these things;
or If they do they do not speak of them.
Not that they are so much more chari
table. It Is not "good form."
But a few years since there was a
kind of sequel which I unwittingly
It seems that Rollo Bently prosper
ed; and properlty brought ambition.
And he thought, as did his friends, that
having lived down that "little lllng"
and being "such a good fellow" that he
was now warranted to "run" for ofllcc.
For, In short, no less a place than the
legislature of his state. And matters
weie In a fair way of accomplishment;
at least as far as a nomination was
concerned, when two gentlemen of Mil
ton hnppened to meet upon some busi
ness In the parlor of the Widow Blan
chard, who also lived In Milton. One
of them said to the other, "Bently of
Cornlth Is trying to get the nomination
for member of the legislature. What
do you think?"
"What Bently is that?" asked tho
"What!" cried Widow Blanchard, In
her lively way, "Is that Roll Bently,
who ran oft with Leora Brayton, trying
to get an office? Well! he has cheek!"
The gentleman said but little more
before they took leave. But the next
day one of them, the elder, who did not
know Rollo, called again and requested
Mrs. Blanchard to give him the par
ticulars of the Incident she had re
ferred to upon tho previous day. He
particularly wished to know If the
story were true.
Filghtened at the serious aspect
which the matter was assuming, sho
refused, and tried to laugh him off the
subject. But he earnestly Insisted up
on her telling the exact truth, and
finally he prevailed.
"And you are sure this Is true? I wish
to wrong no one. I am not hunting
scandal, just to hear some new thing.
I have a purpose."
"I did not live in Corinth." she said,
"but I nm sure my friends there would
have told me nothing untrue. Besides,
the Braytons used to live In Milton.
Leora's uncle and aunt are both dead.
I knew Leora myself when we were
girls. She was a flirt from her cradle.
She would have tempted any man.
You ought not to Judge Rollo Bently
too harshly, Mr. Mayberry. Every
body says that he Is really sorry and
has lived it down. He Is good to his
wife; they have a beautiful home I'm
sorry I mentioned It at all.
"I am gtod you did. I care very lit
tle to know the particulars; only to
know If it were true. I am glad that
he Is prosperous; more glad, If he Is
repentant. But the point is this. With
such a record, he is hardly the man
who should be sent to legislate for us.
There is too much of that kind of
thing now. If tlu young woman was
weak, so much the more should he have
protected her from herself, as well as
from his own weakness. You say ho
has a fine wife?"
"Yes, Indeed. Mrs. Bently is a good
woman as well as a smart one. Every
body likes her."
"All the moro reason, then, to blame
him. Such things can never be 'lived
down,' except In a certain way and

BABIES IN SUMMER

Sound Sleep and Rapid Growth De

Ideal Infant Food In This Awful Saasoa h
A baby does its whole duty If It eats
well, sleeps well and grows rapidly.
No one expects mot'e of It than this.
These are great expectations, and aro
not always met, specially during such
hot weather as now may foe expected.
Babies do not Invariably thrive, even
on mother's milk, because this Infant
diet, unsurpassed when It Is sufficient
ly rich and abundant, often becomes
deficient both In quantity and nour
ishing power. Hot weather very com
monly Interferes with nursing.
These are tho times when lactated
food stands pre-eminent In the minds
of physicians and experienced parents
above any other means of feeding the
child. When tho time for weaning
comes a safe and adequate substitute
for baby's first diet must be secured.
HER LIFE WAS LACTATED FOOD.
Lactated food so closely approaches
healthy mother's milk that tho wean
ing period occasions no disturbance or
difficulty whatever. This splendid nu
triment rapidly jturnlshes everything
needed by the rapidly growing bones
and tissues. Lactated food babies. In
the words of nurses and physicians,
get through the trials of teething much
easier and more rapidly than others.
The reason is plain to every mother
who stops to consider the skill em
ployed In the preparation of lactated
food using pure milk sugar as a basis,
because It Is the basis of vlgoious
mother's milk, there Is combined with
It the richest gluten Hour of wheat and

Thousands of young lives nre every
year saved by lactated food. Cholera
Infantum and fatal diarrhoea do not

children. It does not require the

NEWS OP OUR INDUSTRIES.
It Is reported that several of the
companies producing free burning
coals have been on a still hunt for or
ders for delivery at present prices up
to October 1st, That the effect of this
upon the trade must be very harmful
Is evident at once. The question of
tonnage for July It Is said has not
been definitely decided. Some produc
ers want 3,500,000 tons, and others are
very well satisfied with half a million
tons less. The situation Is one of moro
than usual Interest, and developments
during the summer will be watched
carefully by everyone connected with
the coal induetry.
A Hazletou dispatch Bays: That
operutotB anticipate a big demand for
anthracite coal Is evidenced by the
many strlpplngs being let nt present.
Within a mouth four large contracts
have been given out In this Immediate
region. Today Coxe Bros & Co. award

7 Stockton colliery. The stripping will
be 0C0 feet wide. It will require five
yeais to complete the Job. Two stpam
shovels and 150 men will bo employed.

has been nccepted at tho patent office

great Faving of labor and will be readi
ly accepted In the anthracite coal re
gions. Mr. Evans Is also the patentee
of a boiler front nnd furnace, which is
manufactured by the Vulcan Iron
works, and Is extensively used In
Wyoming and Lackawanna valleys.
A high official of tho Reading com
pany says no general conference of the
coal eomranles has been held respect
ing an advance in coal prices In July
1. His opinion Is that tho present
price of coal Is too low and should be
advanced 25 cen,ts July 1, irrespective
of the condition of the market. It has
not been decided when the Reading
company will Issue its circular an
nouncing the advance.
