A Romance of Concord
By 1 G. Woodbcrry.
j Well, as I was saying, this is the
way It came about: I was a youn?
I thing then, just turned IS. Your grand
' father bad been my playmate, hero
; and protector from the time that I was
old enough to go to school. I had nev
' er thought of marrying any one but
him, and so when he asked me to be
' his wife, why, of course. I said "Yes."
j "Well, It was In the spring of 1775
that we were to be married. Mother
anu i spent tne winter getting my
things made up, and I bad as fine an
outfit as a girl could possibly have In
those days. The day set for the wed
ding was the 19th of April yes, the
triotism we nil signed a paper In which
we agreed not to have anything to do
with the men of the town who refused
Join the company.
The 10th of April was a beautiful
1 day, though a warm one for the sea
i eon. We were all up early that morn
j Ing. for there was a great deal to be
I done. It was about 9 o'clock In the
forenoon when my mother, who had
been looking over some linen, suddenly
raised her head, exclaiming as she did
so. "Why. Mary, was that tbe meeting
"What can It mean?" I cried, and,
running to the window, 1 caught sight
of our neighbor's sons. Joe and John
Eaton, running down the road with
their guns. Across the way Harry
Wright was plowing the field. The
boys called out to him as they passed,
and. without stopping to unhitch the
horse, he seized his gun aud was off
across the fields.
"It Is an alarm, mother!" I cried.
"The boys are down by the brook."
she said. "The sound will not reai-h
them. Run and tell them!"
Without delay 1 hurried to the kitch
en, and. seizing the horn. 1 ran out of
the house and started for the brook,
which was some distance from the
house. I blew a blast on the horn as 1
ran. and as the boys caught sight of
me I pointed toward the road, where
several men could be seen running
with their suns. The boys understood,
and. waving their hands to me. they
were off across the field to the road.
"What do you suppose the matter
Is?" asked mother when I returned to
"I do not know." was my reply, "but
I am going to find out" And 1 ran out
of the house and took n short cut across
the fields to the meeting house, which
was to be the gathering place If the
alarm should ever be sounded. I. for
one. had never expected to hear any
alarm, for at home we boned for a
peaceful settlement of the dlfiicultles.
But when 1 reached the church and
saw the whole town gathered on the
green the men's stern air and the wo
men's pale faces frightened me. and 1
began to fear that something serious
was the matter.
"Y'bat Is it? Where are they co
Ing?" I asked. And as I spoke the men
came hurrylnc out of the meetins
house. wh-re they had heard a few
words from Parson Smith, and, mount
Ing their horses, rode off as fast as
they could so. I looked for your grand
father, but be was not there. Catch
ing sight of my father. I ran to him.
"Have you seen Henry?" (that's your
grandfather) I asked.
"Henry was at the tavern when the
messenger rode tbrouch here," replied
my father, "and, a he had his horse
with him. he rode away without wait
ing for the company to assemble."
You may Imagine my feellugs as I
turned to go home. This was my wed
ding day. and the man who was to
marry me had ridden off without a
word, knowing, too. that he might nev
er return. If all they were saying about
fights and resistance was true.
v father had reached home before
and as I opened the door I heard
mother ask. "Do vou think It Is anr- i
... . .-.. i
uing senous. lamer wu...
"I am afraid It may be. wife," he "But no money to speak of." rejoined
said. "The messenger said that ttov- I tbe chairman of the campaign commlt
exnor Gate has sent some of the ting's ! tre compIacently.-Detrolt JouraaL
troops to destroy the supplies which
haTe been stored at Concord- If th
report is true, there -win be resistance.
and if It comes to that It will be very
serious business for us."
i My mother kept her fears to herself
and did her best to make rue feel that
, It would come out all right, but those
hours were the most anxious I ever
( spent So through the day -we watch-
, ed and waited for news.
. The first news that came to us from
, Ihe fight at Lexington and the other
doings of that day arrived about 6
i o'clock In tbe afternoon, when some
'. mlnutemen from another town stopped
at the tnvern on their way home. They
! told the story of the day to the little
crowd of anxious women who eagerly
questioned them for news of some dear
My father would not let me go down
to the tavern, but went down himself
and brought us the news. I can see
him now hurrying along the road.
I "Something unusual has happened.
, Mary!" exclaimed my mother. "I nev
er saw your father look so excited."
1 hastened down the path to meet
"Bad news, my child; bad newsr he
exclaimed. "There has .been an en
counter with the king's troops. And
then, reading the question In my eves.
he continued. "But they brought no
news of our men."
The hour set for the wedding was S
o'clock, but It began to look as if there
would be no wedding, for It was now
after 7 o'clock, and none of our men
had returned home.
Mother and I sat In silence In the
kitchen while father walked back and
forth in the room above.
At last we leard steps outside, and
then my brother Arthur, who was
among the first to reach home, stagger
ed into the room. T sprang up and ran
to him. He sank Into the nearest
chair, and his gun fell to the floor with
a thud. Arthur was only a boy of 13,
you must remember, and the day had
been a terrible one.
When he had recovered a little, my
father spoke. "What news do you
bring, my son?" be asked.
Now, I had felt from the first that
he had brought bad news, and by the
way he hesitated and glanced from fa
ther to me and still did not speak 1
felt sure of it So I put my worst fears
"Arthur." I said. "Is It Henry?"
"Listen." he said, speaking rapidly.
"The king's troops were' In full retreat
when we reached the road. We did
not keep with our companies, but each
one found shelter as he was able be
hind trees, walls or fences. 1 met Hen
ry as I was crossing a field, and we
took shelter together and awaited the
coming of the troops. We had just got
settled when Henry caught sight of a
flanking party coming light down on
us. He called to the men near us to
run for their lives, and at the same
time we both jumped the wall and ran
for a house which stood In In the field
Just opposite. I reached the opposite
wall In safety and turned round to look
' for Henry, but he was not with me.
At that moment the troops came round
a sudden turn In the road and sent
some shots In our direction. At the
risk of being shot at I stood up and
' looked across the road. He must have
, been hit by the flanking party, for he
lay Just by the wall."
"Are you sure It was he?" asked fa-
' "Yes; I knew him by the green on
his powderhorn." replied my brother.
; "You staid by and looked after him?
"I tried to, sir, but the troops came
down on us. and we were obliged to
move on. 1 went back to the place as
soon as I could, but I must have mis
taken the spot for I could not find
Meanwhile I sat In my chair, feeling
as If 1 bad just awakened from a bad
dream. 1 did not fully realize what
bad happened, for It seemed Impossi
ble. "Here are some people. Mary." said
mother. "You would better go up to
your room and He down."
I did as I was told. There on the
bed lay my wedding gown. I could not
bear to look at It and, picking It up. I
placed It In the large chest in which
my linen was packed and pulled down
the lid; then I threw myself on the bed.
and tears came to my relief. So I lay
there thinking over the?vents of the
day, my wedding day that was to have
been. How different from what I had
Suddenly l heard the sound of a
horse's feet coming up the road at a fu
rious pace. I sat up and listened.
"Somebody Is riding on an Important
errand." I said to myself. Nearer and
nearer came the sound, and the rider,
whoever he was. drew rein at our door.
Then there were a murmur of voices
and an opeulng and shutting of doors
and then my mother's voice calllnc; to
me: "Mary. Mary; child, come down!
Henry Is here. He's come."
Scarcely believing that I heard aright.

the kitchen, and there before me. bis

has not struck yet!"
Then Parson Elder, who had come
over to hear tbe news from Arthur,
came forward and said, "Shall I per
form the ceremony now?"
So rlzht then and there your grand
