THE EVENING STAR.
THE QUAKER LOVERS. fCOHTl HTJKD. f And why wasnH 11 Father didn't urge me. that is, not m so many words, and Job didn't harry me. Bnt I wanted to end the sus peme. I felt driven by the storms of fat* di rectly toward the calm haven of Job's love. He seemed to hold me so unspeakably dear : it was such a delightful novelty to be worship ped: r.nd then I know father's wishes weigh ed v ith me more than all. He didn't urge me much, only because he thought there was no need of It, he took my acquiescence for granted. ., T Well, I felt as if it was to t>e and must be. I accepted Job. I thought he would be consid erably elated, to say the least, and had pictur ed to myself a flattering show of enthusiasm. Not a bit uf it; it was quite what he expicted, and he was simply content. Father took roe into the paidor and talked with me a long while. 1 sobbed like a child, and leaned against the mantel for support. I bad been struggling with so many contending feelings, that now it was all over: my fortitude S&T61 ?? Why, Rachel," said my father, with unus ual tenderness, "I hop<" thee hasn't any doubts in thy mind!" ??Oh, father, its too late to think of doubts; my word is passed! No, no, I don'trepeat; it's all for the best!" ?' God bless thee, my daughter," said he, lay ing his hand on my head. "Tnee has been sometimes a wayward child, and hard to bring under control, but now thee is all a father can ask. I feared thee wouldn't take a natural fancy to fr.end Job, he is grave b?yond his years : bnt I am glad thee has so much good sense. There is nothing thee could have dona to please me so well, Rachel." As if I hadn't known that all along ! Then followed long talks between father and Job about my dowry, quite a fortnne, which had beeu gaining interest for years. Job was to be almerchant, and this was the capital with which my lather was to set him up in business. H<? tetmed to have an adventurous spirit, and while yet in college had entered into various speculations. I haven't any head for such mutters, and always left the room when the conversation turned to stocks in trade, only too glad of an excuse to steal away. I had never enjoyed solitude so well. Now that Job had more than, the right of a guest to expect my attention, I found it more irksome than ever 'o entertain him. Sometimes we sat in the parlor topether for a hair an hour with out speaking. Whenever I turned my head his eves followed me. if I was knittingor sew ing be watched tue play of my lingers. There was one theme on which we met as congenial spirits ; when he was roused to speak of the war, and said in his impressive way, "Dear as tton art, Rachel, our country is dearer: can thee accept a divided heart ?" Then I own I was proud of him, and shook hands with him, saying, " Thee shall go when thee will, Job, thee'll never tind me standing in thy way." ? One day we had a riding party to Oak Grove and a pic-nic. It was then that our engage ment became known, though what should have published it is beyond my power of telling. The excellent Dr. Ehrmann was one of our party, riding with Patience, of course. How handsome the little witch looked! She wouldn't havf beeu halt so beautiful in mixed colors; but drab shades sof'ened her bloom just as a light fog soften- a sunny landscape. L?r. Ehr mann seemed to have eves and ears for no one else ?? It is her vivacity which captivates him," thought I, "he is really looking much older than usual; he likes h<-r youthful giyety, which turns her wrinkles of care into ripples of lauphter." What was all this to me that I should goto criticising little Patience so severe ly 1 Hers were only surface charms ; there was no sensible mau who would faucy such a woman lor his wife. Yet why no' I Marriages are mysterious providence , for instance, who could have foreseen mine two months ago I I suppose I was as happy and fortunate as people 111 general, but to-day I made a discov ery ; Job was naturally jealous. It happened after this wise: While we were saunteriug about before supper I chanced to fall in with friend Charles, and suggested that now was a good time for the long story he had promised me. He tried to turn off the subject with a laugh, almost as it he had forgotten his owu words, but 1 saw that his gayety was forced. " The story may ko till thee is ready to tell It; but Charles, 1 have my little gift at reading faces, and I know thee feels sad to-day; does the war nev. s trouble thee 1" "Yes, Rachel, it sinks into my heart along with many o:her things. But, my friend, since you like straightforward questions so well, allow me to ask you one You remember our conversation the other evening. Have yon been true to yourself, Rachel, and are you happy I" It was a home thrust, it knocked at my heart for a reply ; but 1 was too proud to hesi tate. Yes, Charles, can thee doubt it I" " Sincerely happy," he went on, looking into the blue distance; "so happy that you find nothing to desire! Then I am glad, Rachel, heartily glad. Allow me to congratulate y;>u, my friend," continued he, stooping to uproot a handful of grass and throw itaway. "Forgive me that a moment ago I seemed to question vour truth. If your conduct has surprised me, I am not the first man who has mistaken a woman's fe?lings. You are not the girl to wrong your own ccnscience. I wish you joy !" If he had tnrned and looked into my face, he might not have said exactly those words ; for never had I been less sure of anything in my life than I was just then of my love for Job beau. We bad unconsciopsly strayed off from onr party, and it was Job's appearance on our return which warned me of his displeasure. While we were riding home he told me with some show of authority that it became me aa his betrothed wife, to be a little more dignified, a little less trifling in my manners. The words were gentle enongb, but I felt as if a chain in visible, and even unsuspected, had suddenly been twitched. "Job Dean," said I quickly, "don't thee provoke me, for I haven't the temper of a saint, and I won't be controlled ! While I was walking with Dr. Ehrmann wasn't thee talk ing with Patience Swan, I'd like to know ! If thee isn't willing I should speak a word to an old friend, thee'll suffer a great deal in the course of thy life." He was subdued in a minute. Job hadn't any spirit, 1 was beginning to see that. He might make a parade of authority, but I had superior strength of will, and 1 knew it. Af ter this he tried to soothe me with tender words, but 1 couldn't bear it, it irritated me. Every affectionate thing he said repelled and chilled me, A fortnight dragged its slow length along. I was growing more and more wretched every day of my life, though nobody noticed it but auntie. When 1 was sad father had always con sidered me "equable," and as for Job, if I smiled three or fonr times a day it was well enough; with all his watchfu 1 observation, ho was net in the least penetrating. He and father still held long conversations about business, though I fancied I could per ceive a change in lather; be appeared to have lees admiration for Job's business talents, per* haps because it turned out upon investigation that all his speculations had been failures. At any rate father never said to me now: " Rathel, if tby luture husband doesn'tmak* his mark in the -world I'm very much mis taken." Job was going back to Ohio toenlist with the young nun of his own town; why didn't he start ! When he did go at last, I felt it like treas on, the swe*>t relief which came over me. I knew he might never return, for the terrible uncertainties of war lay between us. But I could not feel apprehension, only relief. This was nottbe way a maiden should part with her betrothed husband. "It's always so with some girls," said Aunt Filura soothingly, " when you are married all will be different." Let no woman trust to such sophistry. I write this story lor a warning. Friend Charles had lately grown so estrang* ed that he scarcely ever called, and when we met ihere was a barrier between ns which, neither he nor 1 could overcome. This change In my best friend added the last drop to my cup of bitterness, I thought. He had been so much to ine, to much more than I had dream ed ! lie came one evening. I crushed a letter from Job unread into my pock?t. He had call ed to say good-bye: he was going into the army aa surgeon. I tried to freeze myself into a sta tue, lor I had already began to suspect the true state o! my heart that ring of .lob's ! If it had been changed into a mill-stone and hunst about my neck, 1 couldn't have relt better pre pared to be cast into the sea! Words I had no right to speak were on my tongue; emotions I btd no rifbtto feel were throbbing at mv heart; tears which would not have started if Job bad been dying, gushed up and choked nw while the doctor held my band to say tfood-hv When people are drowning, it i* said tneir whole past lives rise distiuctly before them. I bad tome such consciousness now us 1 srood with my band locked fast in thut of my friend for a last farewell. The long, happy y ars I had known him came thronging back likebles d creams: the swt et, calm pleasure of rea I ing to' ks together, the interchange of spok n thoughts ; walks by the river ; evening* by the fireside. Never should I live such diys agiin. No one would be so kind and patient with me, bearh g and relieving my little troubles wHh such an exquisite sympathy. < ?a, u sva* terri ble tbat he was goinir! I could not but 1 >ok ?t him, j et his gaze as it met mine was drtwmg nij l.i-art away from iny control. "Hain'ttbee on* word for me I" said be. -adly. Bach a patriot as thon art, Rachel l "Only s?v ?Gid-sp*ed,' my friend." His voice trembled over the words. My Up* moved once, twic?: did bethink I could speak? 1 placed my Qtiier band in bis to let it answer for me. "lton't, Racbel, don't," said he, as if my tonch bnrt him. I tore my bands from bis and rushed away like a whiriwiud ; that was our parting. 1 don't know bow the days passed, but we called it summer, though ta m- it was as Je in Paul says, "No summer, only a winter paint ed grren." Tluy said I was learning huuse hold -ways nnd> r the care of aunt Filnra and ?i L.iddy." There were sundry heavy jokes abont bread I made which had no aspiration, and was said to imitate soldier's "-bard tack," snggejting my train of thought ; little sly allu sions to my luture home with a Quaker tins band, short butlervent letters from Job, always dated Ohio. But more vividly I remember the wild questions which crowded my b jarL Way had an adversp wind sent Job Dean to me ! "Without hi? shadow between ns mizht friend Chailes and 1 have understood each other bet ter 1 There is a hope which is more better than despair, there is a despair whose deepest dregs are more precious than hope. Dr. Ehr mann was engaged to Patience, so the village said, and so I had every reason to believe. It was no atf air of mine, but ah me, who conld say what might have been if onlv Job Dean had never come, that hard-wood mar, for whose sake I had ? forged a life-long trouble " lor myself ?
