SATURDAY KVENING, JUNE 19, 1880.
Imp, or Angel 2
My aunt Urania is a woman of gieat en
ergy and penetration. If she sets herself
te discover a secret, she never rests until
she has enlightened herself down te its in
most recesses. When my pretty friend
Elizabeth Terry was holding us all iu sus
pense as te her intentions with regard te
the interesting widower who new speaks
of her se eflectienately as "my present
wife " (significant net only of a certain
past, but of a positive future), Aunt Ur
ania invited the wary Elizabeth te take a
long country drive. " And, my dear, I'll
have it out of her, if we don't get back till
midnight," she said. They were gene only
two hours, and my aunt entered with a tri
umphant face, the grays all in a lather
from the victorious haste of her return,
while in strong censtrast was Elizabeth's
serene unconsciousness.
"Hew did you de it '.'" I inquired, at
the first possible moment. " Did she con
fess it all'."'
" Confess ! my dear, net a word. She
hasn't an idea that she betrayed herself. I
only asked her, quite casually, hew many
children Mr. Williams has, and she an
swered ' Three,'' with such a leek, such a
sigh !"
The event proved my aunt's acuteness,
and made her mere than ever te us all au
object of admiration and terror.
It was rather unfortunate for me that
Aunt Urania put oil' her projected journey
te Europe for six months the. six months
which decided my fate in life. I should
have enjoyed them much mere and man
aged my affairs much mere smoothly, un
inspected by her keen eyes, unadvised by
her keener tongue. I shall always believe
it showed a very persistent state of feeling
both in Harry and me net te retire discom
fited from se watchful a sentinel.
"Yes of course, your attachment te the
child is very natural, my dear," she would
say, " as I said te Mrs. Dubois only yes
terday. ' Nothing,' I said, 'can be mere
natural. Susan Bardmeie, Henry Kent's
lirst wife, was like a sister te my niece ;
no friends could be mere intimate ; and
of course she feels very much for the little
boy.' "
" I wish you wouldn't talk se, aunty !"
I exclaimed. "Henry Ilcnt's first wife !
I never heard that he had mere than
one i"
"Oh no, net as yet, my dear, but it is
only a question of time ; and pretty gen
erally a very abrupt question, and short
space allowed for an answer. Of course
he must have somebody te leek after that
child : I never saw in all my life a child
that needed it mere. The most saucy,
spoiled little wretch a perfect little imp."
"Aunty ! He is a perfect little angel,"
said I. "As for care, Ceralic keeps him in
beautiful order, and lie is entirely healthy
and happy here in the country. Audit is
all very well te say, ' Of course he must
have somebody te take care of the child,
of course he must marry, ' when you knew
that if he had no child, you would say, 'Of
course he must marry, peer fellow ! he is
all alone ; if he had even a child te care
for it would be different.' Fer my part,"
I added, "1 hate second marriages."
"Oh, yen de," said Aunt Urania ; and
then ensued a xausc, broken by a thump
ing at my deer with little closed fists.
"Let me in, let me in, Nera," said the
dear little voice, in just his mother's old
sweet, imperative way. And the dancing
eyes that laugh up at me out of that fair
little face are Susie's very eyes. " I want
you, my own Nera," said the little darl
ing. " There is a little calf in the barn,
and papa says I may go te sec it, but you
must take me."
" Hoity-teity !" s,aid Aunt Urania.
"That is a pretty way te talk te a lady.
Jfust take you, indeed."
"Papa didn't say just that, did he, llar
dic ?" I asked, annoyed te feel myself col
oring under aunty's keen eye.
"He said I musn't go unless I had the
best of care ; and I knew he meant you,
because Cerahe is very careless ; he said
she was yesterday, when I get my beets
wet. And the old cow butts at me if I go
near her. Se you must come, Nera, darl
ing ; Bardic wants ye se bad !"'
Who could resist these eyes ".' that
coaxing voice ? I had followed just such
eyes and voice all my life, and I followed
them new.
Se did Aunt Urania, with her most in
vestigating spectacles perched en her
nose.
"Well, Bardie," she remarked, cheer
fully, "if you say we must, and papa says
we must, why, we must."
Bardie steed stock-still, with an evil
leek en his face.
"I didn't mean you," he said.
"Oh, my dear little boy, that wasn't po
lite," I whispered ; but he only gave me
a hug, and turned te aunt with a seraphic
smile.
"You'd better net go. The cow is
quite a dangerous one," he said, in a very
civil tone, "and she doesn't like red
things ; they make her furious. She runs
right at them, and tosses them."
" What is the child ttlking about ? Tess
what? I'm net a red thing, I hope."
"About your legs," said Bardie, very
distinctly. "Yeu held your dress up se
high that the cow will get mad. I shouldn't
wonder if she killed you."
Aunty vouchsafed no reply, but strode
majestically en, scorning te veil by one
half inch of concession the somewhat un
necessary conspicuousness of her long
scarlet stockings. Bardie looked at her
very hard.
" A very cress deg lives in the barn,"
he remarked. "He bites people. Net
young ladies, Nera darling, nor children
he is real geed te little boys ; but ether
people he bites."
1 could net speak, and l ciut net dare te
laugh. Aunty's face was awful.
"I am going te the barn," she said,
briefly.
Wc made our way through the ducks
and hens, skirting perilously a yard full of
pigs, and tremblingly passing a small win
dow in a shed, were protruded a great
head, with short horns and soft beautiful
eyes, but a low rumbling note proclaimed
that it was the bull, the terror of our field
walks and grove picnics. Net that we
had ever really encountered him in the
body,but in the spirit he always seemed te
haunt the next field, or be screened by the
shadiest tree.
"Ob. Bardie, I don't like the leeks of
him," I whispered.
"Take held of my hand ; I'll take care
of you,"' said the little knight ; and we
passed the monster, that looked yearning
ly at us in our freedom, and gave a re
sounding bellow that shuddered through
and through me.
Bardie laughed at my fears.
"What are you 'fraid of, Nera sweet?
He has get a big ring in bis nose, and
can't de anything. Anybody can lead him
about. Papa said once that if you could
only put a ring en a person, you could lead
him by his "nose."
" Wtafs thai f" said Aunt Urania, from
behind.
We entered the barn, full te overflowing
'with sweet new hay, and fragrant with
its perfume, and with the breath of the
patient cow, that lay contentedly in her
LANCASTER, PA., SATURDAY, JUIS 19, 1880.
corner, with her head raised in watchful
care of her little weak-legged scrawny
offspring. I had never seen a very young
calf before, and was disappointed.
' Veal!" pronounced Aunt Urania.
"And net particularly geed at that, I
should say."
Bardie did net understand the prophecy.
"Isn't it lovely?" he cried. I wish
papa would buy it for me, the dearest
little thing ! What makes it leek se
funny and wet?"
" Its mother has been giving it some
thing which is geed for all little children,
Bardie," said my annt. " Particularly for
little boys. A geed licking !"
Bardic understood this time? and
looked vengefully at her. Then snapping
the fingers of his minute hand te the old
deg, that lay near flapping a heavy good geed
natured tail against the hard beards, he
uttered a low but perfectly distinct "St,
boy !"
Up jumped the obedient Bruce with a
clumsy leap, and ran, barking loudly, te
the deer, whete he supposed the unseen
enemy te be lurking. Aunt Urina fidg
eted. "Did you de that, you little rascal ?"
she asked, net quite sure, however, for she
had been watching my successful effort te
climb te the top of a great mountain of
hay, where I new sat amid the fragrance of
dried clever leaves and felt iu paradise.
It was an admirable point of view, but
net a convenient place te render assistance
iu an emergency. And thus it happened
that I could sec the cow, growing uneasy
at the hubbub, rising te her feet, and fi
nally, with a threatening leek, advance a
step or two with lowered horns. I could
sec it all, but was powerless te help, and
could only scream.
" Aunt'! Bardie ! the cow! the cow !"
Quick as a wink Bardic slipped past the
angry animal, and, as he expressed it
" shinned up" the haymow, where he
perched himself triumphantly beside rce
Dignity and age alike forbade the exer
cise of shinning te aunty, notwithstanding
Bardie's opinion of her length of limb.
She wavered, tried for one brief moment
te " leek the animal in the eye, " but a
forward movement en the cow's part put
that idea te flight,and she turned and fled,
puisued only a few steps by the disturbed
mother, who "saw her te the deer, " with
a loud moo of dismissal, echoed iu distant
thunder from the small window wherein
gleamed the bull's excited eye ; pursued
also, I am ashamed te say, by a derisive
laugh from Bardie, who steed en one leg,
balancing himself with a pitchfork, and
shrinked out. " I told you she hated red
things. Isn't it fun ! "
We snuggled down in the hay, and let
the cow quiet herself by a vigorous it-turn
te her nursery duties, and then I whispered
a little admonition te Bardic en the sub
ject of his behavior te aunty. It was by
no means the first time I had lebuked my
small charge, and he took it very penitent
ly ; though when I found myself saying, "It
isn't like mamma's little boy te act se, "I
came te a full step, with a sudden remem
brance of Susie's inveterate naughtiness
when Aunt Urania was in the question.
He liked te hear about mamma, the
sweet, bright, unknown image, whom no
body but I had ever brought te his mind,
and he lay with his head in my lap, listen
ing te my stories of our childish play and:
adventures, until the pleased smile grew
vaguer and softer, and the long lashes
drooped lower, and he slept, looking mere
than ever like a wandering cherub of hea
venly rearing.
Then, as I s.it, doubly prisened by the
fee beneath and the friend above, I heard
a quick, unexpected footstep, and Henry
Bent entered the barn with an amused and
perturbed face.
The cow had settled te a comfortable
nap, the flies droned iu the sunshine, and
in the quiet neon hush he would have
turned away without discovering us, but
that low girlish giggle, of which I instant
ly felt ashamed, revealed our retreat.
He looked up laughing. " Oh there you
are, safe enough ; but where is my small
boy?"
" Here, tee," I said, in a very low tone,
and he vaulted upon the hay, and saw the
pretty sleeping boy ; and his face softened
into the mingled sadness and brightness
which I often noticed upon it as he looked
at her child.
" I met Miss Scudamore just new with a
terrible talc of danger and misbehavior.
It is all right I see. But what does pos
sess the child te behave se badly te her ?
He is a perfect lamb with you "
" He has it by inheritance," I said, with
a smile that ended in a sigh. " He never
leeks se like Ins mother as when the irre
sistible naughtiness comes ever him, which
Aunt Urania has the unfortunate talent for
evoking."
The same smile was reflected in his face,
the same in his voice.
"True," he said : ' you sec, as I de, the
wonderful likeness in everything."
" Why de you never talk te him of
Susie?" I said with a desperate
plunge into the difficult subject,
for I had never before mentioned
her name te him since the baby was
left motherless. "It is net right, Harry,
te let him grew up iu ignorance of that
sweetest of creatures. He is as you say,
her living image; he ought te knew and
love her, yet he hardly knew what the word
mother meant until he came here te me."
" I could net, I could net," he answered
much moved. " I am glad you de. I
knew you would de him geed this summer.
I can net tell you the comfort it is te me
te have him in the country and with you.
I knew you must love the little fallow, for
you loved his mother well." ,',
" Loved her, yes," I said, my teirs sud
denly bursting forth. " I can't get used
te doing without her, Harry ; I can't get
ever it."
" I see." he said. " We are fellow
mourners, Nera."
The little head stirred ; one or two of
my tears had fallen en the sweet baby face
and wakened him. He sat up and rubbed
his eyes, amazed.
" What a funny place !" what long cob
webs !" he said. " Oh, I remember new,
the cow. Is she all right agaiu ? Why,
papa, where did you come from ?"
" I came from the city, Bardie. When
I reached there this morning, I found the
man I wanted te see was ill, and wouldn't
come te town for three days, and se I post
ed back te you."
" That was right," said Bardic. "Te
me and Nera."
"Yes, te you and Nera," said Harry,
with a kind smile at me. "But, Bardie,
the first person I met was Miss Scudamore
who told me a very sad tale. I am afraid
my little boy was very saucy and disre
spectful "
" Oh, papa, it was tee funny te see her
run with her red stockings. 1 told her net
te come. I told her the cow might kill
her. But Miss Scudamore, why she
scudded mere than ever," and he went
into a fit of mirth at his first attempt at a
pun.
I responded te the sally with a weak
minded laugh, but his father looked awful.
"Ne mere of this, sir," he said, in a
voice of strong displeasure " If you can
not behave properly te the ladies in this
house, I will send you away with your
nurse, and net let you come here again.
I will net expose them te the pertness of a
I naughty little boy."
Bardie cowered under the severe glance,
and clung te me. I looked piteous.
" De net encourage him, Elliner," said
Harry, in a softer tone. " It is a great
misfortune te a motherless child te grew
up among strangers and servants, who
spoil him, and then dislike him because he
is spoiled." But he stroked the little pen
itent head, and then suggested that a hay
rick was net the coolest place en a sum
mer neon, and that dinner must be nearly
ready.
"Yes, papa ; but first I want te ask you
something. Will you take us, me and
Nera, te drive this afternoon? The horses
aren't haying te-day, and we want te go se
much. Please de."
Harry laughed, and stele a glance at my
face, which I dare say revealed annoyance
as well as amusement.
"Net te-day, Bardie. lam going te
take you ever te the hotel te play croquet
with the littie Temples."
" Will you come tee, Nera ?" asked
Bardie.
" Ne, dear ; I called there last night, "
I said ; and I drew a long breath at the
idea of a quiet afternoon. Bardie safe,
and Harry away away for the long even
ing, my heart whispered. Sephy Temple
and croquet, tea at the hotel, and a long
evening walk, and who can tell what else !
And with a jealous pang for Susie, I
thought, " If only I might have Bardic, 1
wouldn't care, "
Se, after Aunt Urania had settled her
self for an afternoon nap, I changed my
dress and rested awhile, watching from
my window until I saw Harry and Bardie
walking across the fields ; Ceralie followed
and I said te myself, " I thought se, he
will be untrammelled!" and I car
ried my water-color box and sketch
ing steel out te a beautiful spot
at the end of the rambling old garden,
where a low stone wall divided the strag
gling flower borders from the pasture be
yond. They were shady trees and soft
overgrown clumps of bushes and under
growth, se that the retreat, though net
very far from the house, was entirely se
cluded, and it commanded a lovely little
glimpse of weed and river, with soft blue
hills beyond, and in the foreground the
white spire of the village church sheeting
up through the greenery.
Such a quiet afternoon te sketch and
paint ! Ne little tormenting fingers te
meddle and "joggle," no perpetual little
tongue te ask unceasing questions : only
the silence, and the summer music sweeter
than the silence; the soft whispers
in the trees, the droning bees, the
chirp of a bird ; even the spring
of the grasshopper in tall grass
at my feet was distinct in the golden hush.
Yes, that hazy light was beautiful, the op
portunity perfect. Why could I net make
use of it ? why could I net paint instead of
sinking back, after a few listless efforts,
with a heavy heart and clasped hands, and
let the full weight of my lonely life fall en
my spirits? My father, always away,
glad te be free from any charge of me ;
Aunt Urania well, she meant kindly, and
was geed te me, but what a bore ! Susie,
my chosen friend, my heart's sister, who
had led and loved me from childhood, gene
into the land of shadows, and nene te take
her place in my life forever. Even her
sweet little boy would be taken from me
no doubt before long, and given te some
ether woman some Sephy Temple ! And
Harry But just at that stage of my rev
erie, when I felt the choking in my threat
and the het tears in my eyes, I heard the
same well-known step close beside me, and
Harry Bent, flushed and breathless, threw
himself en the ground at my feet.
" I thought I should find you in this
lovely spot. May I net come tee ?" he en
treated. " I thought you had gene with Bar
die." "Yes, I left him there playing with the
little Temples. I made a brief call en the
ladies, and then gave Bardie the slip. I
wanted te get back, and only hope he will
net discover my retreat. Everybody is
lazy te-day except you, Nera. Yeu have
your work laid out in a very notable way,
though after all I de net see that you have
done much."
"Seme days are unlucky," I answered.
"I did net feel iu the mood. But I will
sketch new," and I began te work in earn
est, partly te get rid of the searching
eyes which seemed te read my troubled
thoughts.
"Rest instead, Elliner, and let us talk
awhile."
" Yes, talk : but I can work tee. I want
te make this picture ; the view is se lovely
it haunts me."
"Ah !" said Harry, "there is a picture
which haunts me a picture I lately saw,
and I can think of nothing else ; a woman,
young fair, and with the sweetest motherly
lace ; and a little child."
"A Madenna?"
"Perhaps se. The child was alseep.
Such repose, such confidence in his whole
attitude and expression ! Evidently the
the one right spot en earth te him was
his place in her arms. And she looked
like a breeding dove. Nera, I can never
tell you what I felt when I came upon you
se suddenly te-day with my little sleeping
boy, nor what a revelation from heaven
came te my heart that thus it might be
must be. I said we were fellow-mourners :
can we net be fellow comforters?"
I could net speak ; the sobs I liad sup
pressed, the trouble I had been fighting,
had their own way new.
ne looked at me in doubt snd distress.
"What is it; dear Elliner? De I hurt you?
De I shock you? Have you no heart te
give me ? Ne, I will net ask anything new.
Calm yourself, sweet child ; rely upon me.
I will net say another word if it distresses
you like this."
"I must speak," I cried, with a desper
ate effort. " Harry, Harry, hew can you
ask such things of me, when you knew
that you can never care for anybody again
as you did for Susie ?''
"I knew," he answered.
" When you knew that I am no mere te
be compared te her than this little common
flower at my feet is te be compared te an
exquisite half-blown rose, petal after petal
laden with sweetness, down te its secret
golden heart ?"
"Yes," he answered, picking the little
common flower, and holding it te his lips.
"It is net the rose. But it is hcartV-3ase.
It has its own mission, its own perfume."
"And de net speak of Bardie," I cried,
mere passionately than ever. " De net
tempt me with him. I wish he and I
ceuid go away together te some secret
place, and I could have him always."
" Dear, you may have him always. Ne
ether woman ever shall.".
A long pause ensued. I determined te
grew calmer before speaking again. It
was se hushed that we could hear the stir
ring of some little rabbit in the bushes be
hind. He looked at me entreatingly. I
shook my head.
"Ne, no, Harry ; de net ask me, de net
tempt me. I am net much of a girl, I
knew, but I am worth mere than that. I
ought te be first in the man's heart who
marries me. Ne, de net speak. Yeu
knew I can net be first with you, and se I
can net marry you. Oh dear!" I sighed,
" there is nobody en earth with whom I
am first, nobody who(loves me best of all."
The'stirring of the rabbit became vio
lently excited! and with a great crushing
of leaves and parting of branches, and
rending of little blouse, Bardie tore him
self from his lair, and flung himself upon
me. "Yes, yes, my darling Nera," he
cried, with tears, kissing my head and
face and hands, "love you best of all,my
own Nera want you. Ge away, papa.
Marry me marry Bardie, Nera dear !"
and he threw his arms around me and
buried his head in my neck.
" Yes Nera," cried Harry, clasping his
arms round us both, " marry Bardie ;
marry us both. We de want you ; we
can't possibly live without you. There is
nobody en earth, there never will be,
whom we love half se well. Sweet Nera,
say yes, and make Bardie and me perfectly
happy."
They had conquered. My heart yielded
te both father and child, and I made a full
surrender, with my head en Harry's
shoulder, and my arms around his child,
and my tears all kissed away ; and a won
derful fense of home and belongings, and
fullness and content, glowed through and
through me, and I felt as if Susie's smile
came down in the sunbeam, irradiating the
whole scene and blessing the new part I
was te take in the lives which her death
had left wrecked and stranded.
Aunt Urania came te meet us as we re
turned te the farm-house, putting en her
spectacles of discovery as she came. But
it needed no glasses te see what had hap
pened. Dewy eyes, dishevelled tresses,
happy agitated faces, told the whole story,
even without the help of the ecstatic child
in a wefully tern blouse crewing ever his
victory, and hardly waiting te get within
ear-shot before betraying the secret in his
clear high voice :
" She going te marry me, Miss Scudy Scudy
mere; she premised she would." And
then, as au afterthought, he ad led, "Oh,
and papa tee."
Try Lechcr's Renowned Cough Syrup.
Henry Clement, Almonte, writes : " Fer a
long time I was troubled with chronic Rheu
matism, at times wholly disabled ; I tried any
thing and everything recommended, but failed
te get any benefit until a gentleman who was
cured of Rheumatism by DrThemas Eclcctric
Oil told me about it. I began using It both in
ternally and externally, and before two bot
tles were used I was radically cured. We find

CUTICURA
Miracles of Healing Unparalleled
in Medical History
" I bave been afflicted for twenty years with
an obstinate skin disease, called "by some M.
Djj' psoriasis and ethers, leprosy.cemmenclng
en my scalp, and in spite of all I could de,
with the help et the most skilful doctors, it
slowly but surely extended, until a year age
this winter it covered my entire person in
form of dry scales. Fer the last three years 1
have been unable te de any labor, und suffer
ing intensely all the time. Every morning
there could be nearly a dustpaniul of scales
taken from the sheet of my bed, some of them
halt as large as the envelope containing this
letter. In the latter part et winter my skin
commenced cracking open. I tried everything,
almost, that could be thought of, without any
relief. The 12th of June I started West in
hopes I could reach the Het Springs. I reached
Detroit and was se low I thought I should
have te go te the hospital, but finally get an
fur as Lansing, Mich., where I had a sister liv
ing. One Dr. treated me about two weeks,
but did me no geed. All thought 1 hed but a
short time live. I earnestly prayed te die.
Cracked through the skin all ever my buck,
across my ribs, arms, hands, limbs, feet badly
swollcn.teo nails came etf.flnger nails dead and
hard as bone, hair deaJ, dry und lifeless as old
straw. O, my Ged I hew I did sutler.
' My sister, Mrs. E. II. Davis, 'hed a small
part of a box of Cutlcura in the house. She
wouldn't give up ; said, ' We will try Cutlcura.'
eme was applied en one hand and arm.
Eureka! there was relief; stepped the terrible
burning sensation from the word go. They
immediately get the Cuticura Rkselvkxt, Cu
ticuka and Cuticura Seap. I commenced by
taking one tublespoenful of Reselvent three
times a day, after meals : hud a bath onee a
day, water about bleed heat: used Cutlcura
Seap freclv: anDlied Cutlcura morning and
evening. Result, returned te my home in just
six weeks from time I left, and my skin as
smooth as this sheet of paper.
