A Priceless Love.
What pitfalls besot the young! All
my life I have uffercil from yieldlug
In my joutu to a simple natural Incll
nation or, rather, yielding just enou
to make my action a crime.
When I was eighteen, my molhor
took Into her service a little maid from
the country. She wore her dresses to
the tops of her boots, her hair in a sin
cle braid down her back. It was very
light, and her eyes were n pale blue
She was such a demure little thing and
seemed so lonely bitting by herself in
her room all the long evening for she
did not appear to relish the society of
the other servants that I always spoke
to her kindly when I wished lur to do
anything for me, usually softening my
request wilh a smile. 1 gave her liool:
to read, such books as I thought would
hue-rest a simple young girl. She ul
wins read them and returned theiu to
me without any comment in words
but with such a look I understood Just
what it meant.
One day she came Into the libraty to
do some dusting.' I was seated in the
great leather covered chair by the wl:i
dow reading. I was to leave for col
lege the next day. She was going about
with her feather duster, giving light
touches here and there, but listlessly
as if nhsorlx-d by something else. I'res
entlv I said to her:
"You seem distrait this morning,
Janet. What is the matter V"
I'et haps she did not know what "elis
trait" meant. At any rate, she did not
renlv. but turned to dust a bronze
statuette, so that her back was toward
-Come, little girl, tell me if auy thing
Still she gave me no answer. I got
up from my chair and went to her to
discover the cause of her silence by
looking into her face. She must have
heard me come up behind her, but she
kept oti with her work. I put a hand
on each arm and turned her around.
Her eyes were tilled with tears.
"Poor c hild!" I said.
I bent and kissed her innocent young
lips. Somehow I knew that her tears
were for my departure on the mor
row. Then it occurred to me that there
was something in all this that could
oflv lead to trouble, and. releasing her.
without a word I left the library.
When 1 returned a year later. I found
Janet a little taller, her dresses length
lied to the floor, her hair in a knot at
the back of her head. The year had
brought experience to me. and I knew
better than before that I had trespass
ed on forbidden ground. I greeted her
kindly, but made it plain by. my-toiie
and manner that there was a social
gulf between us, watching her to see
If the change affected her. I could not
see that it, did and felt a sense of re
I continued to return at vacation
time, once a year, noting Janet's
growth from the child she had come
to us to a willowy woman of nineteen.
While she grew tall, she did not grow
robust. Her check was pale, and her
step was languid. On my return aft
er being graduated I noticed this es
pecially and spoke to my mother about
it. but received no satisfaction as to

wrote directions to close the home
stead, leaving everything as it was till
came. It was not for two years more
that 1 went back to the old place with
view to putting it In the market for
sale. My mother had had an elderly
woman in lie r service who was with
her when she dieel, and to her I went
to gain what satisfaction I could in
talking to her alxmt the last days they
had passed together. I asked her to
o with me to the little cemetery near
by and show me the grave. She did
so, and I was much pleased with the
care that had been given to my moth
er's resting place.
What is that mound up in the cor
ner.' I askecl.
That is Janet's grave."
"Yes. She died soon after your moth
er. hen tlie house was closed. I took
her with me. She had been long fail
ing and lived only a short time, though
long enough to do all this work, of
which you see the result. 'We must
make haste, she would say. 'He may
come home at any time, and think how
he would feel to And his dear mother's
grave neglected!' "
"She would come here every morn
ing, weeding and spading when she
was so weak that I could not see how
she was able even to walk here. One
day when she did not return at the ac
customed time I came and saw her sit
ting on that bench. 1 spoke to her, and
she did not answer. She was dead."
I was looking at the little mound de
void of adornment. This girl had spent
two years of l.ttxjr, her life slowly go
ing out the while, that when I return
ed I might not find my mother's grave
neglected. During this period 1 had
never thought once of one so devoted.
Of what disease did she die?" I
asked after some time.
"I discovered that accidentally. She
guarded her secret carefully and I am
sure would not give me permission to
tell you. Rut I would like you to
know. Janet died of u hopeless love
I stood without motion for a long
time. I was far away in the library
where I had kissed her.
For many years I have visited those I
two craves every summer. In Tain i
have I resolved, to marry and build a
home. None of the women in my so
cial circle has ever given tue that pure
affection which I received from Janet,
whose whole soul was mine. Though
I am now an old man, I am a bachelor.
