Mrs. Clarence Vhav, a brido of six
weeks, was lazily strolling along the
banks of the riverjust outside the
village of Ferndale. She had come
down from the old farmhouse on the
hill where the peach and apple and
cherry trees wtto in blossom, and
where Unp'lb and Aunt Mary

tn Clarence had returned to his
place in the bank. Ferndale wos
handy to tho city, and they were to
pass the summer on the old farm.
"SUdle,- remember what Clarence
told you about the boat," cautioned
the aunt as the bride set forth from
The words started a train of
thought that was both pleasant and
unpleasant. Sitting on tho bank of
tho river the young wife gave herself
up to it. She had married Clarence
Vhay lor Ipve. Not once , during
their two years of courtship had they
quarreled. She could say theyliadn't
even differed. Ho was" as kind and
considerate as could be asked for. He
paid homage to a queen. ,He de
ferred to her in every, way. She
could not mention one, shortcoming
as .she sat there leaning against the
And there was the paradox- she
was not satisfied that" she ponldn'L
She was wishing that she could!- She
knew that she had a temper. She
was- self-willed and obstinate. She
loved argument--when she knew
tnat 6ne nact tho best of it. And
Clarence had insisted that she hadn't
a fault not one. She had said
do thisand do that and he had
obeyed. All womankind like courtesy
and gallantry, but few like blind de
votion. When the news of the mar
riage came down to the farmhouSc
Aunt Mary had said to Uncle Zeb :
"Well, I do hop); Susie. has' mar
ried the richt man. If she has sho'U
make a fine woman. He's got to be
a man who can boss her. That's
what she and a heap of other brides
;neea a ikjss. , uive 'em theiraown
way and they'll go through the
world flippety-flop and never
amount to shucks."
And three or'foiir days after the
bridal couple had come down she
had more to say. to Uncle Zeb. She
"Pa, I guess Susie's got the right
"Oh, he loves her, I, guess," was
"And he'll boss her, too."
"He ain't doin' it very much
"But you jest wait. He's one of
the quiet kind. He's got to bo

calf now, but the day will come
when he'll break the rope."
"And then whatf s coiner to har

or run away. It'll be accordin' to
how he does. If he iust flarea un
she'll run; if ho picks her up and
Bhakes her till her teeth chatter she'll
turn out a good wife."
And down by tho old willow tree
tho bride continued to muse. There
was something lockinc in tho char
acter of Clarence. She couldn't just
name it, but she realized it. She
went all over tho matter, but foiled
to grasp it. Sho had married as
happily as tho average girl, but
What was it ? Wasn't she nerfflnfc.
ly happy? Y-e-a. N.0-0. Then
hfir eyes rented on the old skiff tied
to th bank and an inspiration came.
That very morning before leaving
lor town Clarence had said:
"Darling, yew husband wants von
t promise him somethinz. If vou 1

and over tlx daw, and drowned, and
then what would bqcomo of me 1"
And as the tated out on her walk
Atist Mary had called a reminder.
Clarence hd seen ted danger, Ho had
the common aeuse. to m that a leaky
old boat with a piece, of board for a
paddle was no plaything for her.
Yes, but why hadn't he said so in
plain, straight language? Why not
"Suaie, if you go down to the
river keen put of that old boat. Jmnd,

However, she wotsld show him an I
Mary that ahaiwas no baby.
There was a foot of water in the old
boat. She bailed iiLojut with the
fraity old clipper. She got one foof
wet and spateredjfhe'r white dress,
but ehewaT pleasedvqyer ii. She was
having her way, Shetgpt into a ham
mock, and she knew she could get
into a skiff. Yea she accomplished
it, after falling flat oh the bottom.
The bride had.seen a girl standing
up and paddling a canoo on Lake
George. She tlujrcfore stood up to
paddle a skiff on v Plumtreo river.
There was a difference. Tho differ
ence was that the Ijridc enmo so near
upsetting the boat that it dipped a
barrel of water and she foil into it
with a great splash- and lost her pad

blackberry bushes and wild grape
Tine's. It was a modest river and
shrank from observation behind
these things ''; "
The bride was bound for tho dam
and the grave beyond. There could
bo no doubt of that
This bride came to realize this
fact, and she sat still while the boat
rqlled along on the current. Whon

was simply resigned. Sho heard

far out into tho stream; sho heard
his deep breath as ho struggled with
