MY DAUGHTER MINNIE. j A few yenrs ago well, it is not less tnan lony ray little home-flock was led, in the matter of years by daughter Minnie a pretty name, I always thought. Minnie was a gcod child, and being the first-born, was half maternal in her management of the later corners, even down to little "Pigeon, the latest and tinir st-of all. j The picture of Minnie is jut as freA in my mem- I 4 1 i , 1. , . 1. r i L 7 - 1 ory as iijuiign inc roriy years which uae m1Uu.icu c. ana evaporicitni since naa ocen weeKS insieau. uui sootmngs ana comiortings, scarcely to be considered ne.-,s. ily this arrangtemeit the fare is nbout one it is a father's eye that looks over these years at : as abetting my View of the case. At lensrth they fifth the usual oriee. Caotiot n.o r-u 1,.. Minnie, ana w oeauty may De nau ianey ason of affectiona: illusion. Those we love are transpa- rent, yov-. v we who love them look through it, tli 'leart, id then 'imagine-it - surfact-tint and surface-light of whieh we are thinking. This much J know, Minnie was the best, most ....v.w.'.mt.i., wv ui uaumcis uuc ui muse spirited but industrious little creatures upon whose cTTterpise and tact the greatest and strongest of us will 111 voluntarily Ran. "Minnie, shall I want five or six breadths in this skirW" hiM- mother w tier mitLer would say. Lookincr un.u!h inst a little knittincr of tbo fore head, after a irfBincnt's thought, Minnie would en EWC - 'I think five will do, mother ; " and five it was. I c.tn hear, even the voico of Min -lie's mother sho has been gone twenty yeajs, dear heart ! calling from the bead of the stairs : "Minnie! Say Minnie!" 'What, mother ?" "What shall we have for dinner to-day?" "You aro tired, m-ither ; let's have a little bam and some eggs, with some peas from the garden, and bread." That settled the bill of fare. And so it was through the livelong day; for in all the domestic polity Minnie, though only prime minister, possessed fully regal power. At this tune this forty years ago I was, of course, in the prime of life, and full of the cares and responsibilti'e whit h clu. ter and cling to one's man hood. I was largely engaged in active business, re ceived some slight evidences of public confidence, saw a large family coming up about me from all of which my natural posltiveness and force of char ter riceived more or less strengthening. One night, when the last candle bail been extin guishek and all was hushed, my wife said, with some anxiety of tone, "Hu.-band, I feel I'.ner.sy ubor.t our Minnie." "Minnie? Why, what's the matter: is she sick?" "No : she isn't sick, but " "Rut what, wife V" "Wl y, Miunie is I mean, slio seems to be Wfll, 1 in afraid she lik-.-s Je limy Hrun." "Jemmy Rrun ! She'd better not." And I leaped to the floor and walked to the window. "Jemmy Rrun and our Minnie! a pretty match !" "I was afraid you would be disturbed, dear : but don't take it too much to heart, husband. I dare say we can put a stop to it." And motherly sobs came from the pillow. "Put a stop to it ! I guess I will. Jemmy Rrun and our Minnie! I guess I will put a stop to it." And who was Jemmy Brim ? A voung men of some two years' residence in the neighborhood, of good habits so fa as I knew, but altogether and diametrically opposed to my taste, to my ideal of manliness. I had always worshiimed business tact ! and "n'frrr'.- It hrd tak.-n roe, vi,-n arpenncss boy, and brm.4 .. up through numberless ditli eultks to a position of influence. That which 'was found in my natuie when young, was thus nourish ed and rooted through all the after-years of strug- . g!e. ripening into triumph. The young man was of a literary turn of mind; i had taught in an academy ; was a writer, it was ' Kuid, for one or two periodicals. There was an air of f-entiment about him, ih his looks and mannerc, . which came precisely within the scope of my con ; tempt. I had known it in others in strong busi- ness men this utter contempt for the least possi I ble manifestation of sentiment; for those unthrifty fellows who have never an eye for bustnes, but j bang upon the skirts of thought, clasp imagery, and j ride upon rhythm. You may see it now ever- day ! in commercial bouses. It sprins, I think, from the absolute antagonism of fact and farcy of the figu i res which do the pages of the ledger and those whic h illumine the lines of the poet. "The Muses I frowned on me," siud a Geim in poet, "for keeping account books." Undoubtedly. Nor is the knight of the balance sheet less intolerant to-ward those miserable fellow s wlio.se entire sto. k in trade can be stoted within u very little cavity just behind the frontal bone. My good wife had a time of it cooling me down, and preventing the adoption of most violent meas ures. Even w hen I had formally surrsudered to her superior discretion. I chafed by times like a bear in harness. If wife had not been almost a Rarey in tact, I should cert duly have broken into pluiigings even sooner than I did. Minnie was taken one day into solemn conference by her mother, with only pussy in the door-way as audit; r Rut the child," though she blushed very much, movtd ab ut from sei tt . s. a , and b Ti pieces of paper into bits, declared that she was heart whole yet ''as why shouldn't she b: ? for Jemmy Rrun had never said a word to her which any man might not have said to any maiden." So wife and I got easy again. Rut what should I see one evening at twilight, while sauntering out under the shadows of my own grove of forest oaks not "ar from the house, but two figures flitting slowly hither and thither among the di. lant trc.s ! Like a knave as I was, I sat on the g oundand watched them Watched then nervously, glaringly, till I saw Jemmy Brun give Minnie a kiss on her lips, and look lovingly after her as she slip ped awny. I was i t dining upon the sword by her path. Defet mined to meet and confront her'there, I sat and wi tched her coming. l.'eatairdy Minnie's face never wore that expres sion before. It was not gleeful, but it was radiant, and her eyes, which were tent on the ground, and hence only visible as she came very near me, had a light and a depth that I never saw before. She passed me ; so utterly was the child absorbed in her emotions. " Minnie !" I said, in a tone that startled myself scarcely less than the child. - un ! nr.d sno sprang from the path as though I tne sound had been a tattle among the grass. I raised my.-e'f slowly I am very slow when very ar.gry and standing stiffly before her glow ered down into her eyes Miur.ie's beautiful living eyes with a st. rn ss which had never failed to terrify. But the f hiid, though she trembled like an aspen at first, brought her father's spirit to the res cue, and, in the strength of love and innocence, look ed into her father's angry face at length with per fect composure. I must not repeat the words that followed : they shall never be written ; and would to God they had never been spoken ! ilinnie had given him her heart, and would give him her hand. How could she help it ? Even her father's anger should not prevent her fulflding ber vord ; for was not Jemmy Rrun worthy, and was iot her father's anger unreasonable and unjust ? All this she said to me with a deep composure of a perfect heroine, while I stood there almost as much astonished as angry. " Wife, it's all up with Minnie," said, I striding into the sitting-room and breaking in upon a most comfortable afternoon revirie, only relieved by the solemn ticking of the elock nd ths busy click of " Lord t tut" ti;" ;. . , , rolled acrr ll fl matt"? he bifll of yarn window STLiMn, i Wfr pot on ,he side "tS're J"flar;dflCr,1Shlng n th,e bricks,'ut' you look aapSe Is ailSet!r PlteU " quick ;:. i. ... !in of "uTf Fto," SSe """rT r"'"':"1 scapegrace of my absolute commands." Thereupon I walked the floor, wife staring at me the while. "I'll never forgive her never!" j Husband, stop and think. He " j " I tcortt stop and think. I say I'll never forgive . her ; and I won't. Call her in." 1 Wife left the room in search of Minnie. Shn wa J gone a long while ; from which circumstances I have 1 . 11 - . i ..1 .. . always nau me suspicion inai sue fpeni tne time in returned; botti teartul. V sat down together a constrained group"; Minnie very tearful, but very sweet and beautiful. - The interview was short ?nd rtliese weift 'the closing words : j "Father, I have always been a dutiful child vou ; will do me that justice. But I love this-man. Y..u grant mat wis cnaracter is unimneacnaole. but vou forbid our marriage because you have a j.rijudiee against him. I love and honor you, father. You cannot doubt tliar ; but in this case I mut fellow the dictates of my own heart. 'Do so if you will ; but remember, your father will never forgive you.' Thus ended the interview wife sobbing distrtss fully, Minnie weeping quietly, and I sitting gi uni and angry. Minnin kept her word, and became the wife of Jemmy Brun, I did not forbid them the house, as most angry fathers are said to do, but I told M innie again that she had lost my love and care. Then I was so foolish as to see Jemmy Brum, and in a very silly speech infornfhim that since he was taking my ! daughter from her father without his consent, he 1 need expect no gifts or f'ors now or bene forth. She would not be allowed to share in the family in- : heiitnnce, nor should I render the least assistance , if they " should come to want.": 1 should never j forget the queer look the young man gave m.- a glance in whieh pride seemed almost vainly si rug- i gling -with a cluster of mirth-spark Irs, " j "Aery well, Sir; we will try snd not 'come (o ' want.' " That was all he said ; but the eool .-t if- possession of his manner made me feel as though I ) had undertaken to drive a nail and had pounded mv fingers. " : I had always been demonstrative toward mv ch'l-1 dren the elder as well as the vounger. Minnie had : never lost her right to her father' knee, nor did she ! ever meet me in the morning or part from me at : night without a kiss. This was denied her now i Poor child ! it was the sorest trial .f all. Once or j twice she clung tearfullj' to me in my sternness, and reaching up to clasp my neck with her white ! Tm2 tVlrtfl Iw.ml . . . . IT... t t. . X - -T - ... .v.v. .vj ut-im joj iiji?, mi iiei - ;o. i pro- miscel her never a kiss while 1 lived. Women are strange creatures. There was wife, who bad entirely sympathized with me as I sup ported, absolutely giving aid and comfort t- our re creant daughter. I verily believe that long before the wedding-day came she was as thoroughly inter ested in the whole affair as though Minnie had been about to marry the be.-t business man in town. Little use was it for me to tighten mv purse-s'r:ngs, and direct that the child should have no marriage outfit of wardrobe-s, pillow-cases, counterpanes, and the thousand and one ei cetera? in which molhors take such pride nnd pleasure. In spile of nv bid surreptititbdy; Mh.iiK? was well ; t,o i :ed f.. I si sure. I remember that th shopman's hills A r so.Te ten months after seemed unusally full, both in num ber of items and footing of column ; and I shrewd ly Suspect that wife liael aminge-d wish the trades man to have the articles scattered along through the months. She was always a good financier., The ceremony was performed in church. I was present, least my absence might give too great no toriety to the family jar. Useless. The whole town having long since been made acquainted with the state of affairs, the bride's beauty and the bride groom's popularity set many eyes on me with the snarkle of criticism in them. "lie needn't look so savage-like," muttered a gruff olel yeoman behind me; "there ain't a likelier young feller any where hereabout than Jemmy Rrun ; an' though Minnie he purty as a j ink, it s a good match, I say a real even bargain so." Long, long months went by after tb marriage tedious, unhappy months to me. I knew I was being soureel by this self-imposed restraint on the affectional part of my nature. Minnie came tQ her old home sometimes. Ouce or twice she begged foi the return of the old love, the old home-kiss. Xo. M3r daughter was happy in ber husband, happy in her new home. Rut I saw very plainly that tlw bliss of the old homo was lost to ber. Nearly two years went back into the past, shad owed in this manner, when a little human blossom was laid in its cradle. A little struggling wee tiling another little Minne. Poor me ! was a new in fluence to be stemmed, as boats stem another gust and another wave. Rut I braced myself; and when I bad been forced into Minnie's chamber, stood over the pale child with the little one on her arm. and heard the faint voice add to the sweetly-hest -celling look, "Do kiss me, father! 1 shook my head and went out. One day a strange change c-ime over tho voting mother, alarming the experiencetl, and giving t- the phv sician that ominous air of grave my.-n ry which strikes into the soul of tke loving, 1 moved about full of fear and guilty distress.
