What lniT Jiim 'vas that the suggestion
should have bsen made. That ho,

self), who had lived "right here 'pon da

for eighty years, should have had such
an insult pit tkiu him "jos' like he
were one comnviu niggar, whar didn't

iron entered: and Slary had much ado
to persuade him to desist from turning
and twisting it in the rankling wound it
had made long enough to arrive at any
clear understand ii.g of what she wished
him to do.
"I'm sorry yov. have to leave your old
home you've live 1 in so many years," site
said gently, whe she had made all the
arrangements to have them moved over
at once, "it's h ird for such old people
to have to make any changH. You'll be

try and grow us d to your new quarters

There was something almost ludi
crous, if it had r ut ! -n so :ufitiitely pa
thetic, iu the old servant's pride and as
sertion of di,fuitr 1 position, and in
his readiness to die of want in n ditch,
or on a roadside, rat r than suffer what
he considered it sn.-ial degradation.
There were tears in M irys eyes, which
made the smile o'lh.v tips a trifle tremu
lous, as she patto I th old man's feeble
arm and assured him that nch igno
miny should never be his portion while
there was it Be erley above ground to
She watched, s ill with an April coun
tenance, the little group the old negro
walking slowly, leaning on his hickory
staff, and her t-vo bold boys dancing
around him. full of eagerness about the
move and of desi -e to help iu it.
She thought the whole matter settled
and done with w ten she had got tho old
people established in their new qnarters
with their household gods around them;
but it was not. Mr. Anthony at their
very next meeting chose to introduce
the subject, and ro express himself with
some force upon it.
Mrg. lU rnley's riyx UUiznl.
Ned Anthony's feelings toward Mrs.
Beverley had undergone considerable
change during rhe months thai had
elapsed sin.-e th jir introduction. The
barrenness of his nature alternated with
very practically tilled fields, and the
only rill of sentiment that had ever
trickled through it was his love for the
child whose najno Mrs. Beverley bore.
Tho soil being ad .-erso, this little stream
had boon powerless to irrigate to any
great extent eitht r the barrenness or the
cultivation, but it had never been choked
with the refuse oi' other sentiments, or
absorbed in any stronger stream; it had
simply trickled on, wearing a channel
for a similar but mightier current.
Having, by some process that was more
than instinct an I certainly less than
reason, come to a l identification of the
dead child with t'le living woman, An
thony began to realize that the little rill
was rising, incr asing iu volume and
strength, and that tho channel it had
worn was filling with a stream whose
power he could not gauge vet, and only
After their me 'ting in the cemetery
his visits to Mrs. Beverley increased in
frequency, nntil there appeared justice
as well as acrimony in Miss Cornelia's
complaint that he was in or about the
house from the ri dng of the sun nntil
the going down of the same, and after.
The old lady's position toward her un
welcome neighbor remained unchanged,
and appeared unchangeable save in one
direction, and that was increase of bit
terness. "He ru' me all the wrong
way," she explained fretfully, when
Mary pointed out that he had changed
his tactics and was trying to be polite to
her in a rough and bearish fashion. "I
dislike his attempts at courtesy quite as
much as 1 do liis natural rudeness. 1
dislike him altogether. Ho rubs me the
In spite cf the flagrant injustice of
this, Mary was fain, in her soul, to yield
assent. She took his part from sheer
kindness of heart and love of fair play,
and 6he made excises for him to herself
and others, but ia her heart she con
fessed candidly t fiat ne was a Tern Die
irritant. When he was out of her siirht.
riie could recall and dwell with pleasure
on his really tine qualities his ambi
tion, energy, intensity of will and pur
pose, his lack of false pride, his real, if
circumscribed, kindness of heart and
his liberality. She could ticket them all
off on her lingers and give to each good
trait its; meed of admiration, when their
owner was at a distance; but when he
was beside her they faded into tho back
ground, leaving promintuit the conscious
ness that he "rubbed her the wrong
It was a pity; for he really was far
from being a bad, or stupid, or a brutally
offensive man. His genius consisted,
not in saying and doing wrong things,
but in leaving unsaid and undone right
ones. Mary was self convicted of hick
of generosity in liking him with reserva
tions, and yet deprived, by the very
feeling the absence of which she de
plored, of the comfort and certainty of
her aunt's position. "He is truly insup
portable, which is his only defect," that
lady announced, with decision, and
alter that never wavered.
"Why do you cumber yourself with
those old niggers?" he questioned, sud
denly, after he had told Mary all about
tho materials which had come for his
new house and the plans he had made.
There was an architect, a friend of his,
coming from New York to undertake
the work for him, and no time or
trouble or expense was to be spared in
making the building perfect.
Mrs. Beverley looked across at him,
but made no answer. They were alone
in the parlor, as Miss Cornelia seldom
troubled herself to appear. "He doesn't
tome to see me," the said, "and he doesn't
want to see me. I wish ho didn't come
I ) see you so often." And Mary was be
ginning to wish so herself.
"You'll have to support 'em, you
know," he proceeded. "They are too
old to work, and they haven't anything
to live on. and of course they're going to
live on yon. You might have known
that when the old rascal persuaded you
to let him move over here."
"I did know it." Mary replied quietly.
fcI had then moved over for that pur
pose. They tire old family servants, and
we have supported them always. Their
children arc Utw.j: and they have no one
else to lo-k To for assistiuc ud no
where Ise to go."
Anthony whistled. "That's all done
away with," he said, "and a mighty
good thing foi tho land owners too.
Every tub stands on its own bottom
now. They are as free as anybody, and
ought to look out for themselves. Y'ou
ain't bound to support thojn any longer.
As to a place to go, there's the poor
house, if they can't do any lottor. Ye
till pay taxes to support that, and it
would be unreasonable to expect us to
support the paupers of the community
Mary knew that the fendal feeling,
the sense of mutual dependence, which
had been so strong a tie between her
own class and their humble retainers, in
the nature of things was nonexistent in
his class, and possibly beyond his com
prehension. She cast about in her mind
how to make him understand without
reminding him ungenerously of their
difference of caste.
"These old people are singularly des
titute of friends among their own race
on whom they have a claim for support,"
she explained. "As I told you just a
moment ago, their children are dead
and their grandchildren have shaken
them off and moved away. They are
very old and much attached to their
home. They wouldn't he comfortable
at the poorhouse."
"Oh, yes, they would," he contradict
ed, understanding her to mean in the
material sense. "You're mightily mis
taken alxmt that. The paupers are well
treated by the county; they have good
accommodations and clothing and fire
wood provided, and hardly any work to
do. I rode over there myself the other
day to toll the overseer to send a wagon
for old Patrick and to make arrange
ments about them. I don't like niggers;
1 never did. But I'm not a brute either;
and if I hadn't seen with my own e-es
that the darkies were comfortable and
cared for, I wouldn't have moved them."
"It isn't that," said Mary impatiently;
"it's the feeling they have about it.
They would die if they were sent to the
poorhouse. It is their pride, the degrada
tion of being considered panjwrs, the
ignominy of being on the county. Can't
yon understand? It's the feeling that
made Dickens' old woman run away
from everybody and die on the roadside
rather than be taken to the workhouse."
But Anthony had never read a line of
Dickens in his life, and the parallel
which Mrs. Beverley had cleverly drawn
from his own class was utterly thrown
away upon him. What struck him was
the absurdity of supposing negroes capa
ble of feelings and aspirations other than
those relating to physical comfort, of
imagining that they cared for anything
outside of being warmed and housed and
fed without undue exertion. This idea
of hers appeared to him so humorous
that he throw bai l: his head and laughed
Mary felt as though she could have
"Well, well!" he said, as soon as he
had got the better of his mirth, "you are
verdant, if j ou'll excuse me for saying
so, Mrs. Beverley. To think of the cun
ning old lx-ggar taking you in like that,
and of your believing him! He lied like
a thief all around. What he wanted was
to stay iu my house, and when he found
he couldn't do that, to spite me by not
falling in with my arrangements for
him. It's a shame that yon should be
the victim, though, and I'll just let my
gentleman see that he can't get ahead
of me like that. I'll have the overseer
of the ioor here after him inside of a
Mrs. Beverley's eyes blazed. "Ton
will do notliing of the kind," she said
shortly. "Yon are taking a very great
liberty in interfering in my affairs in
this way. Those old people were brought
here by my orders and of my own free
will, and here they shall remain. They
have lived on this plantation for upward
of eighty years, and they Bhall die on it.
They worked for the Jieverieys m trreir
youth, and the Beverleys profited by
their labor; now in their ago they look
to the Beverleys f or . protection and sup
port, and their trust shall not be be
trayed." Anthony stared at her, a light of ad
miration beginning to glow in his eyes.
He enjoyed seeing a woman "fire up,"
as he expressed it, and anger had given
to Mrs. Beverley's face a beauty it did
not ordinarily possess a beauty of flash
ing eyes and scarlet cheeks, a beauty of
light and color, such as the man oppo
site her could keenly appreciate. Never
had she looked so attractive iu his eyes
as at this moment when he was appear
ing utterly odious in hers.
Ha drooped his lids according to his
custom and watched her color slowly
fade. It w;is a pity it shonld go, it was
so pretty. He felt suddenly certain that
he loved her, and that he wanted her
for -his wife. When that should come
about for even at this early stage he
admitted no possibility of failure she
shonld have her way in all things;
should support a regiment of paupers'if
she liked, and believe all their lies if it
pleased her. He wonld build a barracks
for them and issue rations, or any other
tomfoolery that she might wish. He
could stand it, and such a woman as this
was welcome to throw his money about
with lxith hands. It was a shame for
her to be imposed on now, as he still felt
confident these old negroes were impos
ing on her; after awhile, when she had
a pocketbook at her back and some one
to keopit p-i.'tlioric, it would make no
What he said was: "You'll never make
buckle and tongue meet, if you let peo
ple ride over you this way. What v. m
need is somebody to look after you who
has got the right and the means to do
