shall be known as Linda, Is a comely mu
latto. John loved Linda with tender af
fection, and provided her with every
comfort and luxury hi means would
permit. He doted on hi fair apouse, and
until very recently they were a happy,
contented and prosperous couple. But
not long ago a change came over Linda
and she grew cold and distant toward
ber husband. John noticed the change
but could not account for It. He
said nothing, but day by
day It became more aid more appar
ent that . there was something very
wrong with his wife. She not only
treated bim coldly, but disdainfully and
at times would scarcely speak to him.
John never suspected tbe fidelity
of his wife, until one day be called upon
a friend and confident and laid his griev
ances before him, and asked but advice.
Mr. told John to go home.be kind
to hut wife, tell her he was going away
to be gone tor a tew days, but not to
leave town, but after dark to return and
watch the house, and he would as
sure bim tne mystery or nis
wife's conduct would be fully explained.
John was horrified but followed his
friend's advice. After dark he took up a
position where be could have a fair view
ot bis house and determined to wait de
velopments. He did not have to wait
long, tor in less than an hour be saw a
man a white man not very tall, rather
leavy set, aud neatly dressed, ap
proach the house, and after taklug 1
hasty surrey of tbe . surround'
lufs. step up to the door
and rap. This was a trying moment tor
Johu, but bis discretion did not desert
bin and be kept quiet and watched.
Presently tbe door opened and John
beard bis Linda welcome tbe white de
stroyer of hi peace and happiness. For
few minutes Joiin was ai a loss to
know what course to pursue, uui ne
finally made up bfs mind to enter the
house aud assert his rights. He got to
the door as quietly as possible.
but hU presence bad been detected, and
as be was euterlng the front door, tbe
enemv the white maa was goto out
at the back door, John gave cnase, out,
Mr that U tbe white man, gave bim
theslin aud made bis escape. Linda
cried, and promised by all that
was good If John would for
give her this time she would
ever after be faithful to bim. John loves
Linda, and her tears were too much tor
bim aud be wilted and forgave her and
promised to forget, but declared that be
