A Widow Hater.
Colonel TOanvers Waterford, a wld
ower, with no children, lived in oue of
the handsomest places on Kdewater
point with his sister. Mrs. ruuter, and
her son Mark, the latter beins heir ex
Iectant to the Waterford estates.
There was but one point of disagree
ruent In the Waterford family. The
colonel had set Ins heart ou uniting his
estates with a former part of It which
had onc 0(T into another branch of
the family by the marriage of his
nephew, Mark Punter, with Lucy Wa
tcrford, the colonel's Kraudnlece. Un
fortunately Mark had fallen iu lore
with a widow ami could not be induced
to give her up.
"Only permit my mother to ask her
to visit us, uncle," pleaded Mark. "I'm
sure you will fall iu love with her your
"I'll have nothing to do with her,
stormed the colonel. "A widow! Tbej

them. She is trying to get you for my
"She is rich In her own right."
Silence: If you marry her, you
may rest assured that not a dollar of
mine will ever reach her through you
So the matter resteJ. One morning
It was announced that the Viliiers
place, nearly opposite the Watorfords,
had been let to Mr. and Mrs. Strykliu.
Mrs. StryLlin took iossessio:. Mr
Stryklin, it wns understood, had been
called to Loudon on important busl
ness, but would return in a few weeks,
Nobody knew the Stryklins. but as they
were rich and Mrs. Strj-klin. n dashing
woman of . twenty-four, gave evidence
of superior refinement she was accept
ed in the Kdgewater circle.
Henrietta. Stryklin made much of
Colonel Waterford, accepting inrita
tious from him to the exclusion of all
others. In the chase they always rode
together, and when the lady chose to
dash ahead the colonel, tin ex -cavalry
oflicer of the civil war. was the only
Icrson who could invariably catch her.
Nothing was thought of Mrs. Stryklin's
partiality for the old soldier till it
leaked out that Mr. and Mrs. Stryklin
were not living together, and rumors
were rife that a divorce was pendiu
Then all Kdgewater Haw with the clear
est of visions that Mrs. Stryklin was
aiming to be ready when the divorce
was obtained to possess herself of the
I'licle," said Mark Punter. one day
ruefully, "you have opposed iny marry
lug a widow. Io you proiiosc yourseff
to marry a divorced woman V"
"Marry? Who says I uw to marry?'
said the colonel, coloring.
"All Kdgewater had better mind its
The colonel went off in a huff, but did
not in the least cease his attentions to
Mrs. Stryklin. The lady was so charm
inc. so gracious to the lesser lights of
Kdgewater, independent in her treat
incut of the nabobs except Colonel
Waterford. that, despite a natural prej
udice against her designs, she 1-ecame
more popular every day. The colonel,
more and more infatuated, failed to
contradict the reports that as soon as
a divorce was obtained by Mrs. Stryk
lin he would marry her. Mrs. Punter
protested, Mark protested, but the colo
nel at last threw oil all shame and
averred that Mrs. Stryklin's was one of
those cases where a woman having
made a matrimonial mistake should
not be rendered miserable in conse
quence through a whole lifetime.
One day the colonel after an inter
view with his inamorata looked. de
cidedly pleased. It was inferred that
the courts had decided favorably, and
there was now no Impediment to a
marriage. Then he sent out invitations
for a fete champetre, and every one
undersbxid that the engagement would
be announced during the festivities.
On the evening of the fete the colonel
strolled away into the flower garden
with Mrs. Stryklin. Seating themselves
on a rustic bench, they conversed in
Now that there is no impediment 1
beg of you to name the day," said the
"What Impediment?" ,
'I have no husband.
"No. You got all that from these
Ptupid reports that have been flying
about. I did not contradict them even
to you. I am not divorced. I am a
There was a smothered laugh from
behind a ledge near by. Then Mark
Punter stood before them.
A widow, uncle!" he said. "She s
trying to get your property."
What does all this mean?" exclaim
ed the colonel, starting up.
"It means, my dear colonel," said the
lady, "that I have concocted a conspir
acy to take a good nature! revenge
upon you for your imputations upon
widows. That is all. I nm engaged
to marry your nephew, and were it not
for him I assure you I would be ouly
too delighted to marry you."
"You have deceived me by permit
ting me to believe false reports."
"I am responsible for the reports, un-
rle," said Mark.
"I shall cut you off with a shilling.
The colonel fumed, but the widow
held him in check till the Orst anger
passed, and when he realized how
handsomely he had been taken In he
was quite delighted with the widow's
performance. It was still some time
belore he care his consent to iilauepk-
fir j marriage, and when he did he de
