Copyright, 1900, by Lee & Shepard
put in Albert, with his most persuasive
It was an awkward position for Tel
ly and one that she had never before
been called upon to fill. Rather shy
naturally, and her sole acquaintance
with- the usages of society limited to
the few people among whom she had
been brought up, to be called upon to
entertain a smartly dressed and citified
young man was a decidedly new expe
rlence. Albert saw her embarrassment
and with true gallantry at once set
about making her feel at ease.
"Please do not feel that you must try
to entertain me, Miss Terry," he said.
"Only show me your pictures and tell
me about them."
"I am almost ashamed to," she re
plied timidly. "Father .says. you are an
"Oh. no, Miss Terryi" exclaimed Al
bert quickly. "He misunderstood me.
I only sketch a little and once in awhile
make an effort to put a sketch that is
of interest on canvas. All I can tell is
when one looks lifelike. For instance,"
pointing to it, "that shipwreck scene.
It is wonderfully well done. Did you
paint it from a real wreck?"
Telly colored. "No, sir," she onswer
ed, "that was all done from father's de
scription of a wreck that took place off
the point one winter when I was a
baby." Then, as if to check further
questions, she stepped to a closet,
brought him a small unframed picture
and added, "There is one I have just
It was a view of a tall cliff with a
low shelf of fock at its base, over which
the waves were breaking. Albert rec
ognized it at once. "Why, that Is the
very point," he exclaimed, "that I was
sketching yesterday when my boat
drifted away. Did you paint it from a
broad flat rock on the west side of the
"Oh. yes. that is the spot," replied
Telly, looking pleased. "It is shady
there, and I used torow up and paint
in the afternoon. It is strange you
went to the same place. Father told
me about finding you," she said, "and
that you were turned around. You
must have had a hard tramp, for it's
all of two miles from where you were
to this cove, and an awful tangle all
the way, he said."
"I was decididly turned when he
came to my rescue," Albert replied,
"and the sun seemed to be setting in
the east. It was very kind of your fa
ther to take care of me the way he has,
and I -shall never forget it"
It is not hard for two young people
of opposite sex to get acquainted when
each desires to entertain the other and
they have at least one well defined
taste in common; Albert did not talk
much, but adroitly induced Telly to do
most of It. In the hour they passed
together he discovered that two in
pulses were nearest her heart--the first
and strongest her devotion to Uncle
Terry, and after that a desire to paint.
-"I do not ever hope to do much," she
admitted rather pathetically. "I never
have -taken lessons and maybe never
shall. I would not think of asking La
ther to let me go away, and: all I can
do is to work blindly. I often sit for
hours frying to put things I see on can
vas, only to fail utterly and begin all
over again. I should not mind It If I
could see that I made any progress, but
I do not. I can't let it alone, though,
for the most happy hours I have are
when I'm -painting'."
"Yotr certainly have perseverance"
responded Albert encouragingly, "and
the pictures you have shown me seem
very lifelike. I wish I could do as
well. You have done good work for
one self taught as you are, and ,you
have no reason to be discouraged."
Then Uncle Terry came in and an
noukced dinner. It was rather a state
aftair for the Terry household, and the
table bore their best dinner service,
with a vase of flowers in the center.
"I bhope ye feel hungry," said Uncle
Terry as be passed a well filled plate
to Albert, "fer we live plain, an' It's
good appetite as makes good vittles. I
s'pose ye are used to purty high livin'."
"'Whatever tastes good is -good," re
plied Albert, and,'turning to Aunt Lis
sy, he added, "This fried lobster beats
anything I have tasted for a long
When the meal was over he handed
the box of cigars he had brought to his
host with the remark, "Please accept
these, Mr. Terry, and when you smoke
them think of the forlorn fellow you
found by the wayside."
"I've got to leave ye to the tender
marcies of the wimmin folks," said Un
cle Terry,. after thanking Albert, "for
I've got work to do, and tonight we'll
have a visit. I hope you'll be willin'
to stay with us a day or two," he added,
"an' tomorrow I'll take ye out fishin'."
"I will stay until- tomorrow, thank
you," replied Albert
"I should like to row up to where I
was left boatless yesterday," he said
to Telly after Uncle Terry had gone,
"and finish the sketch I began and also
try to find the cushions I dropped in
the wocds. May I ask you to go too?"
"I should be glad to if mother can
spare me," she answered.
When he rowed out of the -little har
bor where he had left his boat Telly
sat in the stern holding the tiller ropes
and shading her winsome face was the
same broad sun hat he had seen on the
rock beside her the evening before. It
was a long four mile pull, but he was
unconscious of it, and when he helped
his companion out and secured the boat
he said: "Now, I am going to ask a
favor of you. Miss Terry. I want you
to stand in just the position I first saw
you and let r.ie nsake a sketch of you.
You were leaning on a rock and resting
your head on one hand."
Tely looked puzzled.
"You did not know I saw you out on
the point last evening, did you?" he
added, smiling. "I stood and looked at
you for five minutes and then walked
away. i did not know who you were
then or that I should meet you later.
was a novelty their little harbor.
When she steamied slowly out, with
Frank and his companions, In natty
wvhite duck suits, grouped on her stern,
she was a pretty sight, and as she
cleared the narrow entrance the crew
fired three guns and dipped her flag
in honor of Albert, and then he picked
his way over the rocks to the light
house. Uncle Terry had not returned
from hauling his lobster traps, and
Aunt Lissy and Telly met him at the
door. It is likely that his being one of
the yachting party impressed them a
little, for they were both dressed in
their best. He was invited in, and
me, 1er I nave dimm-r to "it. .t* Te-iv
will entertain ye."
"And show me her pictures, I hope,"
If I had I would not have been sc
The color came to Telly's face a1
his evident admiration, but she did nol
say no to his proposal, and stood pa
tiently in the position he wished while
he made the sketch. "There," he ex
claimed' when it was finished, "I shall
transfer that to canvas when I go back,
and whenever I look at it I shall recall
this day and-you."
"Will you need the picture for that?"
she replied with a smile.
"That sounded like Alice," he said,
anf. added hastily, "Alice is my only
sister, and I think more of her than of
any other woman living."
Telly sat on the boat's cushions fii a
shady nook and watched Albert finish
his sketch and then listened to his
talk. He told her all about his home
and sister and Frank as well. Tn a
way they exchanged a good deal of
personal history of interest to each
.other. Then they gathered flowers, and
"Draw. yourself as holding the oa'rs."
Telly insisted on decorating the boat.
When it was done she wanted him to
make a sketch of it for her. "Draw
yourself as holding the oars." she said.
"and I will try to paint a picture from
the sketch to remember you by," she
added with a smile.
Then, as the sun was getting low,
they started for home.~ The breeze had
,vanished and the sea was like glass.
Only the long. ground swells barely
lifted their boat and made the shad
ows of the trees along the shore wave
in fantastic undulations. When they
reached the Cape Telly said: "You had
better go around to the core where fa
ther keeps his boats. It's nearer to
the house, and there is a float there
where you can pull your boat.out."
She waited until lie had done so, and
then stooped and selected a few of the
flowers with - which they had decked
the boat. "I am going to paint them,"
she said quietly as she turned and fol
lowed Albert up.to the house.
U NCLE TERRY and Albert had
just seated themselves on the
point that evening wvhen Tel
ly came out with a thick gray
shawl and wrapped'it around her fa
ther's shoulders. "It's a little chilly to
night," she said, "and I think you need
it." Then. turning to Albert, she
added, "Wouldn't you like one, too,
"I would, thank you," he answered,
"if you have another to spare."
He would have answered yes if she
had asked him to put on woolen mit
tens. She returned to the house and
came back, this time bearing a white
zephyr -wrap, land handed it to Albert.
I -will bid you good night now," she
said, "for I presume you will sit here
long after bedtime."
Uncle Terry's eyes followed her back
to the house, and "then he turned to
"I s'pose ye'd rather be' talkin': to
Telly than me out here in the moon
ight," he said bluntly,. "now that ye've
got a little acquainted. It's the way
' young folks."
-I've had a very pleasant visit with
your daughter this afternoon," re
sponded Albert. "She was good enough
to go with me to where I got left yes
terday. I wanted to finish the sketch
I began there." Uncle Terry made no
answer, but sat puffing away at one
of the cigars J~tibert had given him.
"Mr: Page," said Uncle Terry -at
last, "I've worried a good deal since
last night 'bout what ye told me, an'
I've made up 'my mind to tell ye the
hull story an' trust ye with what no
one else knows. To begin with, it's
nineteen years ago last March when
thar war a vessel got afoul o' a ledge
jest off'n the p'int here in a snowstorm,
an' all hands went down-that Is, .all
but a little yearlin' baby that cum
ashore tied up 'tween two feather
beds. I fished her out o' the surf, an'
Lissy an' me has taken care .on her
ever since, an' today she's worth a
thousand' times more'n she cost. How
much she thinks o' me I'll let ye jedge
by the way she thought 'bout my
comfort tonight. There was a few
trinkets came ashore with her-picturs
o' her father an' mother, we knew, an'
a locket an' ring an' some other things
-so we 'knowed her name an' whar
she cum from.
"Since then we have never heard a
word from no one regardin' her people,
or whether any was livin', till last win
ter I cum across a notice in a paper
sayi' Information was wanted 'bout
an heir to an estate in Sweden, an' tell
in' facts that made me sure Telly was
the one wanted. True notice was signed
by that lawyer, Frye, that I asked ye
'bout, an' I went to see him. He want
ed proofs an' all that, an' I gave 'em
to him, an', wussen that, he wanted
money, an' I gave that to him. He's
kep' askin' fer money ever since, an' I,
like a fool, kep' sendin' it, in hopes If
Telly had anything comin' she'd. git
her dues. I've sent-him the locketaan'
things that belonged to her, an' all
I've got so far is letters asktin' fer
more money an' tellin' 'bout expenses
an' evidence an' witnesses' fees an'
bonds sto be filed. Lissy . an' Telly
know 'bout the case, but they don't
know how much money I've paid out,
an' I don't want they should. That's
the hull story, an' now as ye're 'a law
yer, an' I b'lieve an honest one, I ask
ye what's best to be done."
"I see now, Mr. Terry, why you dis
trust lawyers, and I do not wonder at
it. To the best of my belief, you have
been swindied in the most outrageous
manner by Frye. He no doubt is act,.
ig for some law firm who have in
structed him to find an heir, if there
Is one, to this estate, and they would
naturally advance all expense money.
Do you know the vessel's name, where
she sailed from and who her master
"She was a square rigger, an' the
master's name was Peterson. In the
newspaper piece the name was Neils
Peterson, who cum from Stockholm,"
answered Uncle Terry. "I've got it in
my wallt now, an' on the locket was
the letterIs L. J., an- on a pi'ce.L 0' paper
that wais piuied to the baby's dress
was th ii mun Etelka Peterson."
"And did you send thebe proofs to
Fryc'" asked Albert quickly.
"I sent 'em six months ago, was the
reply, "an' I've jest 'bout made up my
mind I was a fool to 'a' cone it, an' a
bigger one to keep sendin' -money."
"Ic would have been all right," an
swered Albert after a pause,. "if you
had put them into an honest man's
hands. As it is you are lame-in fact,
utterly at the mercy of Frye, who is
robbing you." Then, after thinking a
moment, he added: "I will gladly do
what I can to help you, Mr. Terry,
and at no cost to you for my own-serv
Ices. The first step must be to get
possession of these material proofs, the
next to find what firm has employed
Frye. We are helpless until we get
possession of those proofs."
"Ain't my word an' Lissy's as to
savin' the baby no 'count?" asked
"Very good, so far as it goes, but
really no proof that the child you
saved is the one wanted for this in
heritance. In the matter of a legacy
the law is very exacting and demands
absolute proof. No, the onlf way is
to use duplicity and trick Frye or ask
him to name his price anl pay it, and
as the estate may be large -his price
will naturally be extortionate."
Albert thought a moment and then
added. "Has Frye ever written you
idmitting he has received or has' those'
proofs in his possession?"
"Not a word," answered Uncle Ter
ry. "All he writes Is: 'Your case Is
progressing favorably. I need so much
more money,' an' I send it an' lay
'wake nights worryin'."
"How long since he has sent for
money?" asked Albert.
"'Bout a month, I reckon," replied
"I confess, Mr. Terry, I am stump
After a pause Albert asked Uncle
."How does your-I mean, how does
Telly feel about this matter, Mr. Ter
ry. for I suppose she knows the story?"
"That's suthin' I hate to talk 'bout,
but as ye're likely to see more o' us
an' more o' Telly it's better ye know it
all. When she was 'bout ten we told
her the story an' showed her the
things we'd kep' locked up. She'didn't
seem to mind it then, but as she's grow
ed older it sorter shadders bher life, as
it were. We used to ketch ter lookin'.
at the things once U! awhile an' cryin'.
When I sent 'em to Boston she took on
a good deal an' ain't 'been the same
sence. We try to keep her from think
in' 'bout it all we can, but she's curls

"You do not mean that you fear she
would make away with herself in a fit
of melancholy, do you?"
"I dunno what to think," was the an

The .Mosquito Plant.
In northern Nigeria there Is a tree,
called in scientific language Ocimum
viride, which mosquitoes cannot toler
ate. Two or three plants kept in every
room and placed along the veranda are
enough to shut out trespassing insects.
A mosquito gently inclosed in a leaf
of the plant will lose consciousness in
a few seconds. The bruised leaf has a
cent not unlike that of wild thyme
and eucalyptus. The natives of .north
ern' Nigeria prefer an infusion. of its.
leaves -to quinine in malarialfever both
for themselves and their children.
