This Article Contains a Moral fbi WomenjWho Would Sepd Telegrams. confusion of Feminine Mind in the Prespnoe of Morse's In. vention. Mere Wprds, Less lurormatlon and Blgger Bills-H-arm Wrought by One Mes sage From Maude. rrltteon for TI INnDPENDENT. When a woman gets into a condition o1 mind which only a telegram can relieve, ii is a busy day for electricity. It is also an uncomf.,rtablo day for her husband or other domestic animal who, at the far end of the wire, endeavors to ascertain what, ii anything, she means to communicate. No man can possibly crowd so many words and so little information into the space allowed by the usual telegraph blank. I have often tried to find the reason why Morse's little invention exercises such a direful power of confusion over the femi nine mind, but I can only guess that the laue lies in that strange susceptibility to electrical influences which makes her afraid of thunder rather than lightning. Doubt less, also, the unnatural effort to be concise has its effect. The idea of getting anything into ten words must be startling to a person who has been aoustomed to talking nearly all the time and to write in three different di rections on one side of a sheet of paper. I have watched my wife write a telegram. It is an expensive amusement, but I have sometimes indulged in it. There is the grinding and greweome struggle with the irst ten words, during which she eats two r three inches of my lead pencil to stimu 1~e her thought. Then the fatal eleventh wrd goes down. She exclaims, "I knew I couldn't do it, and I won't try;" and thereafter the telegraph company grows richer and I grow poorer at a terrible rate. Anybody can see the influence of this method in the following telegram which I received in Boston from Maud, who had been spending a few Says on the Maine coast. Leave to-day. Meet me. Tell Uncle Horace expect us Tuesday night. Oh, I do hope it won't be foggy nor rough for I for got to engage a stateroom in advance, and the wind is southeast. Isn't it just horrid? MAUIDE. No married man will need to be told that the one essential fact was left out of this message. I knew that she would leave that day; I had agreed to meet her; Uncle Horace h .d alleady been notified; and the direction THE ELEVENTH WORD. of the wind was a little outside the sphere of my influence. What I really wanted to know which route Maude would take. Her solicitude about the weather and the stateroom told me that she was coming by boat, but there are two boats. One of them comes all the way, and the other stops at Portland, and leaves its passengers to complete the journey by rail. As to this latter, or inside route, there was another element of uncertainty. Mande might take either of two roads. The trains were due. at the same time, and the stations are a quarter of a mile apart. In this con dition of affairs it looked as if I shouldn't meet Maude except by accident. When I received her message it was too late to wire back for further information, and when I had paid for it, I didn't feel able to afford any more electricity. The thought of what Maude might be led to do, in an effort to make herself clear, appalled me. However, there was a ray of hope. The out. side boat was due in Boston at five o'clook in the morning, whereas the first train Maude was likely to take from Portland didn't get in until nearly 11. So it would be possible to meet the boat, and, in case Mande wasn't on it, to take chances on the two depots. I was a little late to meet the boat. I am always a little late to meet inything that is due in the early morning. It is true that I once met a sunrise in Boa ton; but I didn't recognize it. I was going home at the time, and mistook the rosy flush in the east for the light of a big fire down town. Conflagrations always poea seseed a great charm for me and I pursued this one nearly two milesbefore it revealed itself as the sun. Then, although the fire was so much bigger than 1 had supposed, I decided not to go. In the ease of the boat, my hurry was unnecessary. She hadn't arrived. An old salt on the wharf said that it had been thick outside and she wouldn't get in be fore noon. Another old salt said that it hadn't been thick, and she might get along any minute. I decided to wait. There are a greet many cranks who admire Boston, but I doubt if the worst of them would be able to see any fun in waiting four hours of a foggy morning on a wet wharf with only the east wind for breakfast. At half past ten o'clock an official of the company told me that the boat probably wouldn't be in before noon, and so, as the trains were almost due, I decided to shift the scene of my vigil. I hired a herdic, and bounced over to the Boston and Maine depot in Haymarket square. Arrived there I asked the driver to look in the corners of his vehicle for any portions of my frame which had been shaken off during the ride. Hie found a few bones which had belonged to previous passengers, but nothing that I could honestly claim. In the depot I learned that the train was fifteen minutes late. Advices to that effect had arrived from a way station. This looked like a blessing in disguise for it would give Ime time to step over to the Eastern Division depot on Causeway street, and meet the train over that route. Un happily tnis train was also late to the ex tuit of twenty-five minutoes. It seemed best to hurry back to the other station. I cid so, and learned that the train in which I was interested had suffered a fur ther delay of twenty minutes, and would thus arrive sixty-five minutes late. 1 snatched a hasty sandwich aind fled back to Causeway street. 'l'h train had arrived and the Passengers had all gone. The other was due by the time that I had ascertained these facts. I plunged madly back to Ilaymarket square. lere. toO, the Portland train had arrived and discharged its human freight. A bright thought struck me. I would look for Maude's trunk among those which the baggage men were hurling about. It wasne't there. This is the way most of my bright thoughts turn out. Nothing now remained for me but to en trust my pteqious skeleton to another her die and seek the steamboat wharf. I did so and escaped with my life; but the boat had already arrived and Manud was no where to be seen. A model young man whom I used to ,know was back in the days when I too was I tabl)' deo ,it Oh blie. whao d h5aOI5dc For, .d , is e ood, and~ :whea man co strtned to swear lt is very ue mote comforting to do it in the preenoe of somet body who will be shooked. I called at q1) place of bueiney. Maude had been then and had gone. She had left her santheln her umbrella two large pcels and a note This was in the note: "I think yon wore horrid not to meet mw at the depot as I asked you to do In m telegram. I am going to buy a pair o shoes and I want you to meet me there a one o'clock, sure. I leave a few little things for you to bring with you. Don'l lose any of them, MAUD3," "Frank," said I to the good young man, "how many shoe stores are there in Bos ton?" r "Pretty near a thousand, I should say, Why?" "Well, I've got to be in all of them at half past one or give ground for divorce, Good by, old mah." I seized the "few little things" and de parted. There were three or four shoe stores which I remembered to have heard Maude mention, so I tried them all, lear Sin a note in each, and a careful desorip a tion of the woman to whom it was to be r delivered. Each note requested my wife to r " OPINION OF AN OLD SALT.'9 meet me at Frank Newell's store. Frank has since told me that three very pretty, golden haired creatures called upon him shortly after my departure, and made guarded inquiries about an eccentric young man named Howdy. The fourth store proved to be the right one, but Maude was not in it. She had made her purchase and had left it for me with a note which sent me once more in wild, misguided pursuit of her. During all that afternoon, and up and down through Boston, I followed the tortuous trail. Sometimes I gained; sqmetimes I fell further behind; but whenever I got dangor ously near to catching her, some billet doux conceived in the spirit of feminine confusion of ideas sent me astray again. But I didn't miss the bundles. Oh, no; I found them every time. They multiplied on my arms, for Maude had only a day for shopping and was determined to make the most of it. By sir o'clock I was so hungry that I decided to eat dinner in town instead of going out into the suburbs to Uncle Horace's where, at last, I felt sure of find ing her. At dinner I happened to meet an old acquaintance who afterwards beguiled me into a game or two of billiards. It was half-past nine o'clock when, loaded with bundles, I took a car for Uncle Horace's. I didn't know the way very well, and some how I allowed the conductor to set me down in the wrong place. Dorchester is blind enough to the natives, but a stranger is sure to find every corner except the one he is looking for. At 11 o'clock I hadn't found Uncle Hor ace's. For the last half hour I had been hunting for a policeman todirect me. When I found one I immediately wished that I hadn't. "Here," said he; "where are you going with all that swag? What have you got in those bundles?" "Cultured sir," said I, remembering that this was Boston, "I haven't the remotest idea." "Well, I'll have to run you in. See? You're a suspicious character." I don't think he would really have taken such an extreme course, but, unfortunately. at the first mention of the possibility I started on a run. Perhaps, unencumbered, I might have outrun him, but the bundles again proved my ruin. I was top-heavy with them and could not see my path. In a minute I tripped headforemost and fell heavily upon some very fragile millinery, for which, I do not doubt. Maude had paid a large sun. The hand of the law was in stantly on my shoulder, and I was forced to go to the station house. The sergeant in charge graciously per mitted me to communicate with Maude. I brielly told her of the scrape I was in; begged her not to be soared or to tell Uncle Horace, but to send a telegram to a certain lawyer, whose address she could find in a directory, and ask him to defend me in "'CULTURED SIR.' SAID I." gram, but by a supreme effort of genius she worded it so that the lawyer supposed ms to be under arrest in New York, and for some fearful crime. He took the earliest train for the metropolis, and I was obliged to establish my innocence unassisted. I was also under the painfulnecessity of pay ing my lawyer's railroad fare and a hand. some sum for wasted time. However, we are now happily united, and Maude has promised me, by all that she holds sacred that nothing but death in our family shall move her to send another tele gram. Under such provocation she may dc as shab likes. It can't make much differ. ence to me. I shall be dead. There are but two of nus in the family. HowARnn FtErrNrao. Copyright.
