As a youth I was diffident, oversensi
tive, imaginative, romantic. My moth
er was very much troubled for fear I
would marry some girl with nothing to
recommend her but a pretty face. I
used to think that she wished me to
marry Margaret Deane, who knew Iiow
to sew and cook and do a lot of practi
cal things in which I took no interest.
I rather admired Gwendolin Germain.
Gwendolin was a' tender flower, just
such a girl as a man likes to take un
der his protection. Her cheek was not
round and rosy, but there was a little
pale red In its center like a rosebud
painted on a china cup, with lips of the
The time came when I made up my
mind that unless I could win Gwendo

but twenty, and that's very young for
a man to feel that his happiness is
bound up for life in one person. How
ever, I proved my constancy by yeara
of devotion to the Image I had set up
In my heart. Fearing that I could not
express myself with sufficient delicacy
to Impress one so young, so modest, so
tender, I wrote my proposal in a letter.
I was several days composing it. and
when finished I left It for another day
on my desk In order to read it once
more before posting it.
I wus suddeuly called away, and
when I returned the letter was gone.
I asked my mother what had become
of it. and she said that it had been
posted with a butch of letters that had
been sent to the mail while I was
away from home. With this I was
content and confident that Gwendolin
had received It and waited anxiously
for a reply.
Ween I met my love again I was
much embarrassed. My imagination
mode her seem' to me cold, even of
fended, and as she made no reference
to my letter it occurred to me that for
some reason I imagined a dozen she
was displeased with my proposal. I re
mained with her but a few moments
vainly endeavoring to converse on trl
Acs, then left her.
I did not call again, and within a year
her family left the place where IMivcd,
and she went with them. My heart
went with her. I lived on a bachelor.
My mother frequently invited Mar
garet Deane to our house, aud I could
see that she was intentionally placing
her in my way. Margaret accepted
whatever attention I gave her. which
was not intn-n. but wiieu I was un
mindful of her she did not seem to
notice it. As the year passed I made
a friend or her, but it did not occur to
me to make love to her.
When I was thirty my mother died.
Before death she made me a con

have intended to send your letter to

And so my motner, to wuom l was

any feeling of regret for my long suf

I took up a number of letters that bad

and among them was one from Gwen

since the beginning of my mother's

But I was tound in honor to .Gwendo

asked me to come and see her If I felt
so Inclined, since she would talk to-roe
rather than write. ti
A few days later I went to see her.
She still lived with her family, who
were wealthy more so than when I
had parted from her in a stately man
sion. It was evening when I called.
and I was ushered Into a private par

scrawny woman came into the room,

with ring. I barely recognised Gwen
dolin and would not have done so had
she not preserved the rosebud In her
cheek by a touch of paint.
"fco your poor mother has gone." she
said. "What a silly thing to keep your
