Nellie’s
Legacy


By Carl Ardmore Bennett
(Copyright, 1916, by W. Q. Chapman.)
“And this Is for you, Nellie,” an
nounced old Peter Briefly. “Better
get It away at once, for I’m going to
pack up the rest of the things today.”
“Thank you, Uncle Peter,” respond
ed sweet-voiced, gentle-faced Nellie
Willett. “I certainly prize this me
mento of dear Aunt Janet.”
“She left nothing of her own, you
know, Nellie?” pursued grasping, close
fisted old Peter, “and I’m not overbur
dened with this world's goods. I gave
her brooch to your cousin, Mary. She’s
a liking for glmcrncks and It pleased
her. You’re more practical, so the
work basket will suit you best, see?”
Yes, Nellie did “see.” She made no
complaint, nor did she harbor any re
sentment against this niggardly do
nor. It was the contrast of this sordid
relative with the angel-spirlted wife he
had lost that saddened her. She won
dered, now that Uncle Peter was un
traramelcd by the careful, economical
regime of his sensible better-half, how
soon he would make ducks and drakes
of the savings of years, for all he had
was duo to the hard work and practi
cal sense of Aunt Janet.
What he had given Nellie was his
wife’s old work basket. Nellie be
dewed It with her tears as she re
ceived It. How often had she sat by
“Better Get It Away at Once."
the side of Its former owner and
watched her sew, mend and knit, tired
out, overworked, but always sunny
hearted and smiling! The hrooch for
volatile, sparkling Mary, old Peter ex
hibited with pride. It was about (he

“Stingy I oh. no n Tor'll I" burst

for the city, “where a roan of parts

“To think of all that money and this
miserly way of getting rid of his clos

rather pretty. It will sot oft that blue
party dress of mine finely.”
So Mary went on her way, her empty
head full of vanity which brings vex
ation of spirit, and Nellie hers, "the Irk
some duties of her lonely life lightened
by the thought that the old familiar
companion of the being she hud loved
best in the world, Aunt Junet, would
always be at her aide.
Nellie found an unexpected use for
the contents of the work basket. Some
new people bad moved Into the great
rambling place next to them, which
had stood Idle for several years. There
was a studious appearing man of about
thirty, an old ludy, apparently his
mother, and four small children, Nel
lie had learned that the name of the
gentleman was Chester Dorset!, that
he was single, In business in the city,
and that the children belonged to a
brother who, with his wife, was away
on a vacation tour. Mr. Dorsett had
come to the llltlo country town to give
the children an outing until fall, Ids
aged mother undertaking their care.
“Such care!” more than once Nellie
had exclaimed to herself as she saw
the little ones running wild. They had
a famous time amid glorious brook,
bramble and bush; but they romped.
’ they tore, they played In water and
dirt until nightfall, they wandered
home veritable little tramps In instinct
and attire. One day Nellie was seated
in the garden doing some mending, tin
cherished work basket by her side,
‘when a bushy head adorned with tan
gled auburn ringlets full of burrs ob
truded through a break In the fledge.
“Did my ball roll here?" Inquired the
tiny midget of a girl.
“I haven’t, seen It, dear,” amswered
Nellie, glad of company. She looked
for the missing sphere, found It and
handed It to her visitor. The latter
was In dire disorder. Her tousled hair
was secured by a ribbon tied In a
hard knot, one pocket of her apron
hung by a thread. There was a great
tear In her dress. The little one was
shrewd and prompt to observe the
cynosure.
“Please, grandma was sick this raorn-

Friendship.
Friendship springs up and grows
naturally; it cannot be planted at trill.
Foolish friendships are often termed
In youth. It Is useless to talk against
them, since young people always re
sent criticism of their friends. We
oust simply tolerate them and trust
to the awakenings of common sense
prove all frivolous friendships false
uad unworthy.

"Dear,” she said, “I am the happiest
woman In the world.”
And Jim, looking wretchedly from
Ethel’s happy face to the grinning one
of his brother, realized that It was not
so easy to tell her as be had thought
It would be.
He arrived home In Harry’s wake,
raging. Nothing would satisfy him
but that Harry should go to Ethel and
at once confess the prank that he bad
played. But Harry was adamantine.
“Jim, old man, It’s for your own
good,” he said. “It’s time you were
married; you like Ethel, you know, and
one day you’ll come to me and thank
me for what I have done.” v
“Get out of my house I” stormed Jim.
■ “From this moment you are no brother
i of mine. Confound yon, It’s another
' girl I was thinking of,” ho added.
It was, for now Nora Doyle began
. to assume a very different aspect In
. his imagination. He knew that If he
had any sense he would have proposed
i to Nora long before.
But be could not tell Ethel. She
looked so happy, her manner was so
. loving, her greeting so affectionate,
i And sadly Jim came to the conclusion
that he would have to marry her.
Nora Doyle and he seemed always to I
1 be meeting now. Ethel asked Jim that ;
, their engagement should remain se- ;
, cret for the present; consequently j
. Nora suspected nothing. And Jim
1 found It impossible to avoid telling |
. her of bis love and of his tragic mis
take.
He avoided her, bat still they met;
! he would go for long country tramp*.
■ and he would encounter Nora on the
i way; he went to town once, and Nora
I happened to be taking the some train.
And at lust, utterly worn out, he re
solved to ask Ethel to marry him at
i once. The sooner It was over, the
. sooner he could learn resignation.
Ethel's manner had been a little cer
emonious of late. Jim had nut seen
her for two days. As he entered the
garden of her house he heard her
voice, then a man's and, to his aston
ishment, It sounded like Harry's. The
next moment ho had turned the corner
of the hedge and come ui>ua Hurry
holding Ethel In his arms.
He stood still, struck speechless,
with a mixture of wild relief and al
most ungovernable fury. The pair, j
surprised, started apart; then Ethel's
ringing laughter broke upon Jim's
ears.
I "You tell him, Harry," she said.
"We’re engaged, old man,” said Har
j ry. approaching his brother a little
warily.
“What do you mean?” shouted Jim.
"Now, don't get mad, my hoy! 1
knew you loved a certain party, but
were holding off, and that you'd lose
her If you didn’t hurry up; so Ethel
and I contrived this little trick on yon.
We’ve been engaged all along, and —” I
“Forgive me. Jim," said Ethel, com
ing forward.
But Jim had bolted—bolted Is the
only word that can be used to decrllM> |
the method of hls movement, Harry
and Ethel, watching him, saw that hls
course was uphill, immediately toward i
Norn's bouse.
“It worked!" said Harry ecstatically.
“Ethel, you’re a wonder. You're an
angel. Kins me as many times a*
you've kissed Jim."
An hour later, n little shamefaced.
Jim Scanlon returned. “It's all right," j
he said. “She’s accepted me. And
why shouldn't we alt he married on
the same day?”
“Just what Ethel suggested," an
swered Harry. “Hay, are you glad
now?"
“Harry," said Jim earnestly, “I
thank you from the bottom of my
heart.”
But he did not quite understand the
meaning of Harry’s very enigmatic
grin—till he remembered.
How to Become a Classic Dancer.
"How may I become a classic
dancer?” wrote a young woman to n
Columbus newspaper. The paper gave
the following answer:
“Go home and cultivate a dislike
for Iwthlng dishes; refuse to make the
beds, sweep or dust, because such com
mon things will Interfere with your
lofty Ideals. After you have sufficient
ly Composed your mind, remove your
clothing, put on n nightgown, provid
ing you huvo a very thin one, led
your hnlr trail down your back, ana
yourself with a little tin whistle,
which you must be sure and call a
lute, and then seek the front yard.
Jump high and wide, much as If you
hud inadvertently stepped Into a bum
ble bees’ nest. People will come to
look at you and most of them will re
mark In a low and vulgar way that
you are either bughouse or nutty. But
they will not know. They arc Just the
common people. And if you Jump
high enough and gel your picture In
the papers you will have succeeded.”
Model English Tavern.
Great Britain's first government
node) tavern has been opened at
Carlisle. It Is called the Gretna tav
ern and coffee house, and Is under tho
management of the central control
(liquor truffle board). The latter pays
to those conducting the establishment
a commission on the sales of food and
nonalcoholic drinks, but not on alco
holic drinks. Beer, but no spirits, la
sold. The board's object Is to replace
small and unsuitable premises where
a large trade In liquor Is done by
more commodious premises where re
freshment may be obtained In health
ful surroundings.
