THAT FATAL WEEK
Sow Mr. Copeland Removed the
Barrier to Amy's Happiness.

there's the pity of it," said Mrs. Cope
land, with sad decision, as her husband
turned out the gas. "The Bible record

"No happiness could come of it, be

women grow old more rapidly than men,
It is not fair to Amy, and I could never
consent to such a thing."
"But, my dear Harriet," urged Mr.
Copeland, "what possible difference
could it make this paltry week? Had
it been seven years, now, Instead of

is, no one would believe it. I don't my

a temptation which often assails and
conquers the best of women a desire
for the last word.
"yes," Raid Mrs. Copeland, yielding
to this weakness, "there is certainly a
week's difference. I will show you the
record of Amy's birth to-morrow, in
your writing, in the Bible."
"I don't dispute it," repeated Mr.
Copeland, in drowsy tones; but as the
final word fell from Mrs. Copcland's lips

Copeland stood lost in treasonable med
Down the long column of defunct an
estors traveled his fat forefinger, un
til, reaching his own branch of the
family, his search became more earnest,
and bringing his wandering digit to a
sudden halt he gave vent to a smoth
e.'ed exclamation of chagrin.
"Confound it! She is right again!"
There, in his handwriting, was the
"Amy, eldest daughter of William G.
and Harriet Copeland, born September
He gazed for a time at this proof of
his wife's accurate memory, agitated by
a variety of emotions, though his pur
poso never flagged. He had resolved
in that short curtaiu colloquy to tam
per with tho dates; but just now, on
the ere of executing his design, he was
sensible of many qualms.
He opened his desk and took from
one of the shelves a small vial, a bit
of blotting pap or and a fountain pen.
The first contained some chemical prep
aration, and, carefully drawing the
stopper, he let fall a single drop of the
liquid upon the date.
Like magic it disappeared, and dry
ing the cleared place with the blotting
paper Mr. Copeland viewed this part of
his undertaking with great satisfac
tion. All inconvenient conscience
pangs were now obliterated, and he
was only intent on perfecting his task.
This brought the fountain pen Into ac
tive service. A light stroke, and the
deed was done.
The anxious lines disappeared from
his genial face, a smile played round
the corners of his mouth and twinkled
in his eyes as be replaced the Bible,
concealed the weapons of his enter
prise and tiptoed upstairs. But at the
first landing a shock awaited him, for
there stood his daughter Amy, also en
veloped in a wrapper, her little bare
feet thrust into slippers, tier pretty
hair falling about her face as she leaned
over the banisters and peered anxious
ly into the dimly lighted halt
"Father," she exclaimed in a sur
prised whisper, "what are you doing at
this time of night?"
Mr. Copeland started guiltily like a
Schoolboy caught In mischief.
"1 might ask thatquestion of yon, my
dear," he returned,-parrying her attack.
'I was bunting for a book."
"And I for robbers. I am sure some
one turned the handle of my door
awhile ago. 1 was frightened."
"Silly child," said Mr. Copeland, "no
one was stirring but myself. Now go
to bid and preserve your roses, else
your mother will wake up and scold us
The girl cut his sentence short by
tucking his arm within hers and lead
ing him downstairs again, like a lamb
to tho sacrifice. - '
"There, strike a light," she com
manded. Mr. Copeland obeyed.
"Now, sir,' said Amy, fixing her
laughing eyes upon him, "what mis
chief hae you been brewing?"
"None, my dear, upon my honor,"
cried Mr. Copeland, turning a shade or
two redder, if possible.
She shook her head dubiously,
"But, seriously," said Amy,"I wanted
to ask your advice. What am 1 to do?
1 can never marry Eoland against
mother's wishes, that is clear enough,
but how to overcome the obstacle I am
at a loss to conjecture. ' At the same
time I owe a certain duty to Eoland,
who loves me."
"To be sure, to be sure," assented Mr.
Copeland, studying the tips of bis slip.

the disparity in age."
"Ah! that ugly, provoking, obstinate
week!" flinging out each adjective with
a gesture of despair, "and Roland would
take It from me gladly If he could. Do
1 look so very ancient, so very much his
senior? Is age so plainly written on
my face?" -
''No, I cannot say that it Is," replied
Mr. Copeland, with a critical glance.
"You are a wee thing, after all. Ro
land looks years older, and, do yon
know," sinking his voice confidentially,
"t have come to the conclusion that
your mother must be mistaken."
Amy started back horrified. "Never,
neverl yon forget mother's memory.
That is unimpeachable."
It was now Mr. Copeland's turn to
shake his head.
"Nevertheless, I hold to the opinion
that there is an error in this case. With
so many things jostling one another In
her mind, would there be any wonder
if she had confused the date?"
"You dear old father, you mean well;
but you can't, so Roland and I will have
to wait until".
"Until mother, In the kindness of
her heart, consents to forget the dif
erence of a week."
"Forgetl" echoed Mr. Copeland, in
credulously. "At least, to overlook It"
"That may be; but the fact would
still remain a haunting memory. It
must be obliterated," said her father
with stern decision.
"What must be obliterated?"
"The date ahem I should say the
fact," returned Mr. Copeland, in some
confusion. "There, never mind, my
dear. Don't bo worried. Things will
come all right In the end. What an
untimely hour for discussion! One
o'clock just fancy if your mother
should wake up and miss me! Come,
you must not lose your beauty sleep."
Mrs. Copeland's memory, as before
stated, was a family institution. It
was a perfect encyclopedia of dates and
events, a most useful and valuable ac
companiment to a very charming wom
an, and especially useful to Mr. Cope
land, whose absent-mindedness was an
But regarding Amy's little romance,
Mrs. Copeland's memory bade fair to
prove a serious bar. From childhood
these two lovers had seemed destined
for each other, from the days when
they shared all their possessions, and
generous Roland yielded the better
half to his little sweetheart through
the various stages, through the transi
tions of boyhood and girlhood, when
the timid heart begins to know itself.
Out of this they emerged hand in
hand, to the general satisfaction, for
Roland Deane was a sterling fellow,
and both Mr. and Mrs. Copeland hearti
ly agreed when they declared their ap
proval of Amy's choice.
For awhile all went well, and many
delightful plans had been made for the
future, until Mrs. Copeland began a
course of reminiscences relative to this
important change in her darling's life,
and then she came upon the awful dis
covery that in point of age Amy out
stripped Roland by a week.
Mrs. Copeland passed a most misera
ble day. To such marriages she had a
rooted antipathy, that no amount of
argument could dispel.
So it is no wonder that in contem
plating the deed just so successfully
accomplished, Mr. Copeland had fairly
trembled at his temerity.
Had his bold scheme involved any
other book he would not have hesi
tated; but he venerated tho sacred vol
ume and felt, in what he had deter
mined to do, a certain awe and dread,
as if he meditated nothing short of
altering the ten commandments.
He was decidedly nervous the next
morning and evaded the important
subject by every artifice in his power.
He had no wish to taste of victory so
early in the day: so when Mrs. Cope
land, pursuing at the breakfast table
the thread of their late discourse
offered to produce testimony on the
spot, Mr. Copeland rose with all ap
pearance of haste and glanced at his
"Nine o'clock, my dear Harriet. I'm
late as it is. I can't wait; some
other time will do. This evening, per
haps. Good-by," with which he hur
It was part of his plan to encounter
Roland in the course of the day, and It
was his good fortune to meet him that
evening walking In the direction of
"See here, Roland," he began, "I
want to speak to you about Amy. Have
you noticed the dear child has not been
quite herself for the past day or so?"
"I have, Mr. Copeland. Amy is need
lessly worried over such a trifling mat
ter; it is not worthy of consideration."
"Ah, my young friend," answered Mr.
Copeland, with a disapproving shake of
his head, "you make a mistake. If a
man had a toothache, for instance, it
does him no good to tell him it is a
mere trifle. To tell Amy it doesn't
matter is so much breath wasted. It
does matter, for it is there, and clearly
what must be done is to remove the
cause of distemper."
"1 understand your words, Mr. Cope
land," said Roland, "but I must con
fess I fail to grasp your meaning wholly.
It is beyond our power to annihilate
facts, else, believe me, I would gladly
shoulder a burden of fifty years to re
store Amy's happiness or do away with
Mrs. Copeland's prejudice."
"Not prejudice," objected Mr. Cope
land, "that is not the word. Mrs. Cope
land is suffering from the effects of an
acute attack of memory. If you knew
ray wife as I do but this is a case -of
too much of a good thing and 1 am go
ing to administer an antidote."
. Roland was silent in amazement. He
bad been sufficiently Intimate with the
family to appreciate the stupendous Im
port of this declaration. He trembled
at the thought of such boldness.
"I don't think you have fairly consid
ered the difficulty of your scheme, Mr.
Copeland," he said at last
' "Why difficult?" queried that gentle
man. "Are not the best of us liable to
err sometimes? My wife during all
these years baa been particularly ex
empt from the common lot of mortals.
but her time may come, Roland her
time may comer' .
That evening a peculiar influence
pervaded the atmosphere of the Cope
land family, charging it like electric
ity, and, strange to say, it could be
traced to Mr. Copeland
Usually kind-hearted and cheerful,
these traits became marked bv an in
tensity that waa almost painful. His
good humor amounted to such hilarity
that the bonje teemed too small to on-taujl
They were enjoying a pleasant hall
hour after dinner in the library, quite
unconscious that Roland and Amy inj
the room beyond were determining the
best way to bring affairs to an lssna
for which purpose, accordingly, they
invaded the santuary together.
One look at their faces caused Mr.
Copeland to retire behind bis newspa
per a man's surest safeguard when
family disturbance is brewing.
Mrs. Copeland raised her eyes from
her knitting as they came in, but she,'
too, detected something, and silence
held them all for a moment 1
"Mother," began Amy, in a tremb
ling voice, "Roland and I have come
to-night to ask to beg, indeed that
you will renew your consent to our
engagement which you gave so long
"Indeed, Mrs. Copeland," added Ro
land, in clear, firm tones, "Amy and I
have tried and proved our affection. Do.
not make us waste our youth in wait
ing. There Is nothing to hinder our
marriage save this shadow which you
have raised between us. Let it fade
for the bappinessof all." !
Mrs. Copeland, at this appeal, laid
down her knitting, and Mr. Copeland's
newspaper rattled sympathetically.
"My dear children," said Mrs. Cope
land, much distressed, "I wish I could
make you see this matter as I do. It
is the principle of tho thing. My ob
jection is not a shadow, Roland, but
tangible, as you know, and not easily
overcome. Perhaps you think me over
sensitive on this one subject"
"My dear," interrupted Mr. Cope
land, in a serious tone, "I don't pre
tend to take sides in this important
question I am too Interested in all
parties. Your objection, Harriet, as
you stated it is well grounded 1 don't
deny that yet these children are no
less reasonable in their demands. What
amazes me is that you should not re
flect that you might be mistaken in this
matter. Memory is capricious and It
may have served you a false turn."
"Not my memory," said Mrs. Cope
land, with an air of pride, as if in de
fending It she upheld the family es
cutcheon. "Well," said Mr. Copeland, shrugging
his shoulders as his eyes returned to
the paper, "I have but expressed my
"I cannot believe it possible, Wil
liam" Mrs. Copeland's voice assumed
a reproachful tenderness "that after
all these years you should doubt me."
"Not you, Harriet," replied her hus
band, "only your memory."
Mr. Copeland was growing philo
sophical in anticipation of his ap
" 'After all these years' was the term
you used; don't you' realize that time
weakens rather than strengthens that
faculty of yours? People at our period
of life may wear well- you do, my love
but we must not expect too much. It
is perfectly natural that after its ceas
less labor the springs of your memory
should be impaired. It is only what
we must all look forward to; and,
surely, you do not mind going down
the hill with me, Harriet?"
Tears came into Mrs. Copeland's
eyes, but she did not speak, and Mr.
"Does not the new happiness, ready
to flower at your bidding, compensate
you for this trilling lapse? Could you
be content, dear, to gain a point and
lose the solemn joy that uniting these
two lives might grant to you and me?
I don't plead for them; neither do I ask
you to deviate from a principle; only
consult your clear judgment and do
what it dictates."
Without a word Mrs. Copeland rose
and with an air of rigid calmness laid
aside her knitting.
With a firm step she walked to the
bookcase and taking from it the family
Bible she cleared a place upon the ta
ble and placed it before her husband.
"You remember," she asked, slowly,
"recording the date?"
"Indeed I do," assented Mr. Cope
"And I remember," she said, "seeing
you set down the day and year. Sep
tember 7, iSTO. I tell you this before
consulting the register, for I honestly
desire to be fair to Amy and myself."
Mr. Copeland actually trembled in an
agony of conscience, and almost stopped
breathing while Mrs. Copeland turned
He controlled himself with a great
effort as she reached the fatal page.
He watched her forefinger travel down
the column, us his had done; he saw
her stop suddenly, and he felt that the
moment of victory had come.
She did not speak at first, but stood
staring at the date as if her eyes had
"Amy, Roland, come here," were her
first words, and as they obeyed her
summons she pointed to the accusing
"I was mistaken," she said, simply,
but so pathetic was this bit of renunci
ation that Mr. , Copeland felt tempted
to step forth and declare his duplicity,
when his eyes fell upon the trans
figured faces of tho lovers.
No, that would never do; he must be
firm and stand to his false colors for
the good of all.
Mrs. Copeland gradually regained
her composure, her momentary chagrin
.as counterbalanced by her true ma
ternal feeling, and as for Mr. Cope
land, his satisfaction knew no bounds.
When the young people left them a
reflection of their joy lingered behind,
glorifying Mr. and Mrs. Copeland as
they sat together on the sofa, hand in
"William." said Mrs. Copeland, break
ing a pause, "I shall never remember
"Oh, my dear!" exclaimed Mr. Cope
land, in alarm.
"Never positively, 1 mean. I suppose
I shall always have a tendency to recall
facts, but always conditionally."
And so it proved. From that day
she lost the air of assurance that had
made her an oracle. Her active mind
still performed its customary duties,
but without ostentation.
It was never "I remember," but "If I
remember correctly," "If I em not mis
taken," uttered with such humility and
doubt as to render the expression
painful to Mr. Copeland's ear.
But be never recanted, and Amy's
fair beauty and unclouded happiness
in some measure overbalanced that one
false stroke on the record page of the
