WAITING AND WAITNG.
One evening, about ten years ago, I was
bitting in my cheerless, unhoinelike hotel
parlor, when a letter was handed uio bear
ing the postmark of a remote little village
among the Connecticut lulls. I had been
there once long years before, and as I took
the letter a waft l'rcmi the breezy hills and
fragrant woods swept over the remembrance,
causing again the thrill of pleasure with
which I first welcomed them.
I opened my letter; the writing was
familiar, I glanced at the signature. It
was that of my old college friend, Plnllip
I shut my eyes then and thought awhile
The tide of memory was too strong for

six years before Phil and I had clasped

"If any man can trive me strength and
happiness, it is Phil Rodent," I said to my
self. Early in the next week the train left me
nt the quiet station, little different from
what I remembered it, and no sooner had I
stepped upon the platform than a cheery
voice exclaimed :
"Welcome, old fellow, welcome at last,"
and Phil clasped my Land in both of his.
I saw the brakemau smile as we two old
men walked off together, Phil's arm thrown
across my shoulder a boyish trick ol his
but 1 thank God in my heart for this
htrong, faithful friend who had kept the
memory of our boyish days still fresh and
green amid tho frosts of ago and the chill
ing winds of change and absence. a
One balmy September morning I was in
stalled pastor of tho old-fashioned little
church, and then I went to houskeeping.
Phil and I weie busy all one week getting
my home ready, asd then I wrote to Abby,
who, poor girl, was glad enough to leave
her boarkliug-placc and coino to keep house
for me. Many years ago she had buried her
hopes of happiness in the grave of young
Menard Phelps, and since then her life had
been rather a cheerless one. We had two
brothers married, but though "Aunt Abby"
was very useful it the children had measles,
or scarlet fever, there was no place to call
her "homo;" so now we two, the odd ones
in the family, planned to end our days to
gether. Phil and I were much with each other,
and one evening in the beginning of De
cember we were sitting in his sanctum
Binoking a quiet pipe together, and he tell
ing me of some improvements which he
meant to make on his ph.ee, when I 6aid,
What a pity it is you haven't, made

air, and sat watching the soft rings in .

'I hBve been waiting tlieuc twenty years,
Archlo for my wife, and I still beliovo she
will come, though it's a long time," ho re
Was my friend dreaming? I said noth
ing but sat awaiting some further culight
'You never knew my brother Paul, did
vou. Archie?" Phil commenced in his full,
muni vi lire. "Poor fellow, ho met with an
accident when a child that lamed him for
life. When ho was let mo sco about
twenty-two (he was eight years younger
than myself), I took him to Germany to
consult a famous physician, hi whoso skill
I had great faith. Just before our sailing,
threo passengers came on board who attract
ed my attention from the first. One was a
man between forty and fifty, handsome and
stylish-looking, but which an unpleasant air
of bravado about him, and a furtive way of
watching people, with impressed mo very
imliivorablv. Ilo was iollowed by ft man
some years younger than himself, on whoso
arm leaned a younji and very pretty lady.
As they passed into tho cabin many eyes
were turned upon them.
"Tho men were talking wnouy in
French, and paying little or no attention to
tlirir ,! out roinnnmon.
Piiul had his meals brought up on deck,
and at dinner I found I was seated next the
young lady who had so excited my interest
that morning. I never asked you, Archie,
whether you cared to hear that long story,"
lin Knid. ttirniiiL' to me: "my heart was so
full of it to-night I began almost without
thinking. If 1 weary try to pardon me."
Assuring him that I would be pleased to
hear it, he went on:
"Well, that ni-iht many glances ot ad
miration were cast upon my neighbor
glances not unmingled with pity; the pale,
beautiful f;ico was so very sad, and the
largo brown eyes seemed very heavy with
unshed tears. As she raised her hand I
saw she wore a wedding ring. The elder
of the two gentlemen was evidently her
father, the likeness between them was so
strong, and the other, I became convinced,
was lier husband, although ne scemea
strangely indifferent to her comfort or con
venience. As we left the table she dropped
her handkerchief, and when she raised her
eyes to mine in thanking me for restoring
it, whether she saw the interest l leit re
vealed in my face, I could not tell, but a
slight flush tinged her check as she turned
"The next morning when I returned from
a search for Pnul's books and rug, I found
her seated beside him. She apologized
very sweetly for her intrusion, then said,
with a glance at her husband, who was
leanincr on the back of her chair :
"'Mr. Lambert had some books which he
thought your brother might like to see.'
"Lambert acknowledged my thanks with
a careless bow. saying, with a scarcely per
centible sneer in his voice, as he strolled
" 'My wife is devoted to invalids.'
"Mrs. Lambert glanced at me with a
troubled look,-as if she feared my being
offended; but, as I endeavored
by my manner to reassure her,
she was soon chatting quite cheer
fully to Paul, who seemed to have taken
one of his violent fancies to her at first ac
quaintance. "After that not a day passed that did not
find her seated on the deck trying to in
terest and amuse the poor boy, who used to
lie on his cushions, with his pale cheek
resting in his hand, and his large blue eyes
fastened on her eloquent face with a look of
the most intense admiration and love. Once
she apologized to me for usurping my place

my Paul, accustomed to petting all his file,
soon demanded the most exclusive atten
tion from Kathleen, as he had learned to
"She would often come on deck looking
pal j and troubled; but, in a few minutes,
beside Paul's couch, her face would clear,
her eyes would grow soft with womanly
tenderness, and the smile that played upon
her lips was all the sweeter for the tears
that had preceded it. Ilev two companions
seemed to leave her almost entirely to her
self, and before the voyage was over I
strongly suspected that in the interminable'
games of cards, always going on in their
cabin, a good deal of money belonging to
the other passengers passed into their hands
and yet, good company and good wines
made their company very attractive.
"They were both very gentlemanly in
their manners, and Mr. Lambert was espec
ially witty in Ids conversation, though his
wit was of the sarcastic kind that oftener
wounds than pleases. Many a time have I
seen Kathleen's cheek flush and her eyes till
with tears at some careless sneer from this
man who had sworn to love and cherish her;
and then, Archie, I confess I had to clinch
my hands to keep from collaring him and
pitching him over the rail. The mystery of
that union 1 never fathomed. He seemed
utterly indifl'ereiyt to her, and that she did
not love him I was certain; that she feared
him I was equally sure.
"Her father seemed kinder, and for him
she evidently entertained great affection.
One day he joined our little nartv. savin".
as he laid his hand upon his daughter's
" 'Trying to replace the poor little Pari-
san, Kathleen? Well, that's right.' Then
he added, halt-sadly, half-jestingly : 'I
wonder it the good deeds of angels can blot
out the sins of one of the evil ones? Ask
that pale boy, Kathie; he looks as if he was
familiar with the way of angels.'
"Kathleen bent her head, with a vivid
blush, but Paul reached up and took her
hand, saying, with his own bright smile:
" 'I have been lately, sir.
" 'I believe you, my boy,' her lather said,
hastily; 'may it do you more good than it
has done me.' Then he turned away, and
I followed, for I thought Kathleen would
rather be alone with Paul for a time.
"When I returned Paul was saying:
" 'Do you know, Kathleen, with all your
dear little motherly ways, I am four years
older than you?'
" 'In years, perhaps, but oh, Paul, not
in sorrow 1' She continued, in unswer to
his reproachful look. 'How gladly would I
bear your sorrow, heavy though it is, no
words can tell.'
"Then I withdiew as quietly as I had
come, knowing that my gentle brother could
comfort her better than 1 could. One day
Paul mentioned our destination a German
watering place. Her face quickly lighted
"'We are going there, too; at least I
think so. I have heard them mention it.'
Then she stopped abruptly, and changed
the subject before cither of us could reply.
"Paul used to talk of .her for hours after I
took him down stairs; and one night when
he had been telling me how loyally Kath
leen's lips kept secret tho misery any child
might read in her face, ho looked suddenly
at me with a penetrating, startling glance.
