' The Wiles of a Widow. HY NORMAN WRIGHT. (CarvrlgM. isin:. l.y lv.il Sioiy Pub. C Ot tout?, it ai my fault proba bly. I was young; we were both young; had we been older, or at least le etllow. it would not have hap pened. Hut what the ue ot talking bout "Ifs" and hut "? It wa u It and there no help for it I might a well Mate plainly at tbl Juncture that Margery and I were In love, or at least we thought we were. We had leen weciheartt ever el nee he was In pinafore and I In short pants. Hut at the time it happened I had blossomed Into creased trouser n.l a downy mustache and t arried a vane had become. In short, quite a young man of fashion and wholly dla-Im-itncd to le treated as a kid. Now, Margery was a most aggravating mls anil mischievous, and she declined wholly to accept me in the role of a young gentleman of fashion, prefer Ing to maintain the old relationship as boy and girl. This was. as you tan readily conceive, a constant source of annoyance and humiliation to me, and 1 was In no playful mood when Mar gery's cousin, big and bronied and SO. and the possessor of a long and flow ing blai k mustache, came out to visit Margery's family. Then tame a ee rie of odious comparisons done al ways in Margery's laughing way and probably not Intended to hurt. Hut they did hurl and mortally. What young cul. of JO with the first growth of down on his upper Hp can see the humor In compaitsons with the flow ing mustache of a full grown man?. And when on top of this the sweet heart of your fondest dreams deliber ately refuses to accept your Invitations ami npM-ars places with a big. hand some cousin with a piratical mustache, a man certainly Is justified tn taking radical measures. It was Just when I was feeling my worst that I met the widow. It was at a party, to which, by the way. Margery had refused to accompany me, prefer Ing to see the look of Impotent rage which adorned my face. As I stood biting my nails and wishing most heartily that I was somewhere else, when glancing a. toss the room I was ila'r.lcd by a vision of lovliness which fairly drove Lie blood back upon my heart. It seemed that I had never seen eyes so Mark and saucy, a com plexion so richly olive, lips so red and full and Inviting, a chin so dainty and n form so altogether alluring. Well, I whs formally int.-odueed ami most gra ciously received. With the art of a lever woman and a w idow she made me feel that I was a most important personage In her eyes and that she liked me. I suppose that evening was the happiest I ever knew - unless I ex cept the evenings following. Her flat tery w us incense to my spirit, wound ed as It was by Margery's conduct. Immediately I Iternme the devoted slave of the widow. She was a few years older than I. but the manner in which she looked up to me and de ft rred to my opinions convinced me that I was really her elder in knowl edge of the world and that she was but a flinging vine wholly dependent upon my strength anil wisdom. Within a week I was wholly en slaved. 1 could think of nothing, talk of nothing but the widow Hy that time I was calling her Nellie at her own suggestion delitately conveyed. I was ruinously extravagant in flowers and theatres, and matters were pro gressing rapidly. My affair with Mar gery was forgotten, or. if remembered, it seemed wholly childish beside the fiery passion of my new love-making And the love-making was all so easy There was none of the embarrassment so constantly arising in my relations with Margery. The widow's plump little hand seemed so invitingly- near to mine at moments when it was pro pitious to give it a warm squeeze, and there were always so many perfect op portunities for quite tetea teles. And those teie a tetes - there never Wei sin h delightful ones since the lgln ning of time. The modest blushes and tdglis of the widow nearly drove me Nellie. distracted with delight. 1 have sue pt ted since that the widow was not so modest and ingenious as she seemed and yet it seems sat r il ge even to sug gest it. I remember the first time I kissed her. It wns several week after I met her. She had been particularly Invit ing and gracious and 1 had caught I glimpses of the daintiest of ankles peeping irom me oaintiest or lingerie, which I confess set me afire. She was attired that night, too. in a gown that suggested every line of her faultless figure and kept my mind filled with visions of gathering her In my arm. A I arose to go I came pretty near doeng tt even started toward her but my timidity got the best of me and I drew bark. Jus: then, la some un accountable manner she tripped and lurched toward me. Well, what could I do but throw out my arms to save her and In an Instant I had that luscious morsel In my arms and when she was recur ly there It all seemed o natural that I squeered her tight and planted an ardent kiss full on her ripe lips Her cheek wer? aflame and she drew several sharp breath a she shrank from me. saying: "Oh. don't. Kred, you mustn't. 1 really am afraid of yo-.i when you look like that." Hut I only held her the tighter and rained kisses upon her. Then she sent me from her, telling me that she dared not trust herself with me longer. And I went home intoxicated with her beauty and charms. Ah me. that was before I'ncle Tom died, and instead of leaving his mil lions to me as everybody expert rd and had been led to expect. ndowed a col lege with them. And I went to work In an Insurance office, and somehow circumstance seemed to make It hard er to see the widow, especially alone, nd we gradually drifted apart and r "Oh. don't. Fred, yon musn't!" only last week she married Nathaniel Sykes. hO years old and worth three millions. The Williams and Walker company at the timid this week played to a crowded house each evening. They are both very clever artists, in fact, the whole company is all right. It is the best on the road and much praise is extended it by the white and black. Manager Judah of the tlrand gave the colored cititens good accommoda tions at the Williams and Walker show this week. IMMENSE TREES IN FLCRIDA. Monarch of the Forest That Have Stood for Centuries.
