JUDITH EEED; A Plain Story of a Plain "Woman. Bntered, according to the Act of Congress, In the year 1871, by Sirs. A. J. Dunlway, In the Office of Hie Librarian of Congress at Washing ton City. CHAPTER XX. In the week that passed over my head during this terrible ordeal I had appar ently forgotten my unhappy and help less Msler, hut the sequel will prove that 1 hud not been idle. The Doctor an nounced one morning that the day of execution upon her home had come, and offered to drive me out to the sale. "I will go with your driver," I an swered quicluy; "but my poor sister must be spared needless humiliation, and so my wealthy friend must not ac company me." Arraying myself in plain black mus lin, I early repaired to the scene of ac tion, and saw the little all that my sis ter had struggled to save knocked down under the auctioneer's hammer. Even the chickens and the children's pig were sold, and still the prices brought were not suflicient to pay the rum seller's demand. My poor sister wan tiered aimlessly around the house. Her strength and ambition had alike failed under her protracted life struggle, and her mind seemed turned to stone. Finally the forced sale was over. JiiVcry article of any intrinsic worth was sold, leaving only the tattered bedding and battered household furni ture, which defied si bidder at any price. My brother-in-law lay crouched in :i fence corner, with his head sunk ujxm Jus shrunken breast and his purple nanus clasped rigidly around his treni 1.1! 1... - oiuig Kiiees. vtJierewitn to buy an other dram was gone, and the iKior, wretched mortal, faint from want of stimulants, was struggling weakly with his fate. "Oil, sister Judith, give nic rum, or I shall die J" he wailed, when I aroused him. "I have no rum, my poor, sad broth er," I replied, "but you will not die. Sec, I have ordered a wagon, and shall remove you and the family to the city. Get up and come along." "For God's sake, Judith, get ine jut:i little whisky! It won't cost you much!" The red eyes seemed starting from their lurid sockets; great drops of agony stood on the cnrbuneled nose, and the full veins uion the forehead throbbed aim surge.1, xrtmyiiig the torture of the thirsting blood. Xfoundamau in the crowd who had a bottle of gin, which I bought, and pouring the most of it upon the ground, brought a small quantity to the bum- ing wreicu, wiucn sccmeu to revive and give him strength suflicient to ena ble him to aid us somewhat in our task of removal. By this time t lie men who had at- tqnded the sale lor the sole purpoe of making a bargain began to discover that my fallen brother had a friend, and straightway they would have plied him with drinks enough to have brought on delirium tremens, had I permitted it. "Who is she ? "Where did she come from? "Where's she going to remove nic, mnniy?" were the half-whispered queries I heard, but I answered no ques tions contenting myself with giving an Sn'veall, com manding the idle crowd to give my poor wLTeur-etShi'Ufrr00" in front of an hu b L f N nished, for my relatives' accominX tion. My poor sister laughed and wei.t by turns. "I have been young aTl now am old, yet I have never scon . righteous forsaken or his seed bcmrii,.. uaau. nan uci umy utterance turwituiier arms arounu my neck she held mc fast, while her tears flowed like ram. '.'Nonsense, sister mine!" shaking fcer off, "You'll find everything here that you absolutely need, but no money. , ... A IT . 1 II I . . I'm dctcrniincu luat siKurf Mian ut! sobered off for once. .Now. (go to work and enjoy yourselves, and I'll go back to my children." I found the Doctor's brilliant man sion well-lighted up for an evening's entertainment. Entering a side door, I repaired to my own apartments, ar ranged my toilet, and strolled out with my sons and daughters, seeking a place for private conversation, under the soothing influences of the evening sky Minutely I reluted my day's ndven tures, vividly interesting my children and winning from them voluntary vows of total abstinence. Suddenly a hazy light shone out be tween us and tho shrubbery, and kindly face appeared, with beaming eyes and long, white beard. As sud deniy the vision vanished, and my children clung to me in terror, while from Minnie alone came fortli the ejac- ulatiou, "O, mother ' An inward song of peace and gladness took possession of my heart. Wending our way back to the mansion, we re tired to our rest, while in my soul the memory of that sweet and solemn promise, "I'll explain," once more at tuned itself to melody. The next morning we met my frionils at breakfast Master Ben. related hi his inimitable way our evening's ad venture with a "ghost." "I was just a little afraid," said he, "and so was Fred. and the girls ; but you ought to have seen mother stare ! Her eyes grew big as two moons, and when the spookey blazed his light out she just didn't say a word, but just brought us back to the house, and I couldn't talk a word." "I think you've recovered your tongue this morning, Ben.," com mented Fred. The Doctor took occasion to explain according to ins Hypothesis, the mys tery of second sight. He assured me that my imagination created the nj. pari tion, an opinion I had long held but which seemed set at naught by the fact that my children, who knew noth' ing of that part of my history ns in any way connected with the apparition, had seen the same illusion Mrs. Lewis adroitly changed the cor versation, and I was glad indeed when other topics were introduced. ine evening, wmcu nail been so grandly, gloriously beautiful had proven the precursor of a night of misty, driz zling rain. Enveloping myself in a waterproot cloak, and encasing my feet in boots, I visited my sister's new apartments, unmindful of the weather. My brother-in-law was locked in one of the rooms, uttering unearthly yells and calling down anathemas upon his family in words of awful import. "Sarah, dear, what does all this mean?" I asked. "Henry's bad again with delirium Oh, dear ! I wish that I were dead !" "But how did the poor mortal get ti liquor?" My sister blushed and hesitated. "leu me, lor L will know!" J ex claimed angrily. "I sold the new dress I found in the bureau and gave him the money "Sarah! Sarah! you're a fool.' So, there!" "Don't Judith, don't!" sobbed tl weak woman. "If you had heard him plead for whisky you would not blame inc. Poor man, he's had it for so many years that lie cannot iwssibly iiv without it!" "Let him die then, the drunken dog !" Header mine, I well know (iiat should not have spoken thus. My si ter loved the poor, wrecked and wretched mortal, and, woman-like, she would uphold him. "Judith Ileid, I scorn your help! I despise your patronage ! Leave me to wash, or scrub, or cook, or sew, or starve! Do what you please, but don't abuse my husband, who once was kind and noble !" She turned from me fiercely to make preparation in her auger to leave the premises. Luckily for her, one of the epileptic children fell down in a fit just then, and her wrath cooled down in the attempt to prevent him from chewing oil' ids tongue. After a while comparative peace was restored, and the heavy breathings of the drunken brute betokened sleep. Sarah would not speak to me, and I saw that if it were possible for me to aid her family she must be conciliated; so, to shield her from herself, I told a lie! It was the first lie of my life, and I sin cerely hope will be the last. "Forgive my harsh words, Sarah dear," I meekly said. "I did not mean to wound you." "Will you retract the awful things you said about my husband?" "Oh, yes, sister! Your husband's a first rate fellow ! Let's have no further word about htm. I think he's splendid!' Sarah was mollified, but I was so dis gusted with my falsehood, so vexed at her, and so discouraged about her hus band, that my enthusiasm cooled down to zero. Promising to quickly return, I left the house in smothered rage. The misty rain had gathered impetus, and fell in blinding sheets. The sodden city sent up thick columns of smoke. Crowds of pedestrians, with spattered boots and drenched umbrellas, thronged the busy walks. Loaded omnibuses dashed through the sloppy streets. Dis content was visible on many faces, at which I wondered much. Memory car ried me back to the rainy season of the Great Northwest, where people made the best of circumstances, and I grew so sadly home-sick that I resolved to make an effort to return to my far dis tant home. I reached the Doctor's house In a state of mind bordering upon desperation. I plainly saw that my sister was willing !ri cc I9, Prosperity, happiness, Mo., i and children, liomc, friend, mni nr.. - ' ' friends, and life itself, upon the altar that had wrecked her womanhood. I had forgotten that she loved the drunken wretch who had forfeited his moral right to liberty, and that it was therefore impossible to save her from herself, and seeing this, I wondered that men, with all their wisdom, never yet had learned that in the very matters in which woman most severely needs the protection of the law, she is left to rely solely upon the biased judgment of weak, wounded, suffering, but affee tionatc, forgiving and morbid heart. "Dr. Armstrong !" said I passionately, is I mounted the marble steps, shak ing the drenched umbrella while I talked, and stamping resolutely in my rage, "mv sister Sarah's a consummate fool " "Well. well, what now?" following me into the parlor. A hurried and indignant explanation followed, winding up with my expressed determination to wend my way back to the Pacifie coast at an early day, clinching my assertion with a doubly emphatic "so, there !" "I'm surprised that you didn't know before to-day that a woman in love with her husband would go down to the depths of degradation wltlrhlm. I've seen so much of that kind of thing in my time that I sometimes fear that women never will be able to govern themselves." "They aw, at least, as callable of self- government as are the besotted wretches whom they so often claim as husbands,' said Mrs. Lewis, quietly. "Have you disposed of the epileptic boys and idiotic girl as you anticipat ed?" "No ! I got so angry because my sis tcr sold her dress to buy that wretch of a husband a jug of whisky that I didn't oiler to do her family another favor." "Judilii!" was tne reproachful an swer, I gave j-ou credit for more good sense and magnanimity than this." I don't profess to be a saint," I re torted petulantly, but I didn't feel Just right over my ill-natured Hurry. My daughters were in the music room practicing a duet. "Well as I liked mil sic, 1 was in no frame oi mind to bear it then. "Fifteen hundred of you ! stop that noise!" I shouted, angrily. 'I guess you're not much of a saint ; you're right aboutthat matter," saidMrs. Lewis, laughingly. My daughters, who had long before become accustomed to my fits of temper, made sly, -amused grimaces at each other, and demurely folding their hands, wheeled around with their backs to the piano, and sat stock still, with the air of patience on a monument. Dr. Armstrong broke into an ungov ernable fit of laughter. "You're the same quaint, curious, unmanageable, wild animal that I knew nearly forty years ago," he said, finally. "I do wonder If you have just made that discovery?" I haughtily replied "Yes, and glad indeed I am that I have made it. The germ of all your tumult uous and singular childhood-nature, which long ago so deeply interested mc, is yet alive. You are not the crushed, dispirited woman I have been taking you for, but are amply able to help your self." "Yes, and I'll do it," was the quick response. A ring at the door-liell startled inc. Why was It that I was forever looking, longing, expecting? Always waiting for sonielKHly that never, never came? Tiie visitor proved to be my friend of newspaper notoriety, and his visit result ed in an oiler of what seemed a liberal re wan 1 for my services as a writer for his journal for tiie ensuing year. "Your western brusquery is charming, Mrs. Smith. I only stipulate that in whatever you undertake to write, you use your own terse, comprehensive, ve hement style. That suits me." So the bargain was made, and T felt that I would henceforth be enabled to live independently of my kind and gen erous friends. The day which had been so unpromis ing and disagreeable culminated in one of thoe delightful afternoons so deeply appreciated by every lover of the beau ful and grand. "Come, Judith, let's be oil" after your sister's children. I promised to take them round to the asylum as soon as the weather should clear up. And, stay; If you have anything that will mollify your sadly insulted sister, better lake it along." "I can't thiuk of anything unless I buy a jug of whisky!" said I, sarcas tically. "Judith, don't be a simpleton. You've been a victim to-day to tho depressing influence of the weather. Now let's see if you can't show as serene a face as Madam Nature's. I don't blame your sister for getting liquor for her husband. Neither would you blame her if you un derstood thecasc. Hcmight be reclaimed if he were placed under confinement in some hygienic home, but, as there is no law to compel him to go, his wife and children must endure the consequences." My brother-in-law was in a heavy, drunken stupor when we reached the house. Sister received us coolly at first, but, as I had by this time recovered my wonted equanimity, her rigidity gave place to graciousncss, and we, without much difficulty, prevailed upon her to allow us to remove the poor unfortu nates to the asylum, distant some three miles from her frugal home. I could see that she longed to accompany them, but of course she could not leave the help less brute, her legal protcctorf?) heaven save the mark! who was twice as much in need of guardianship as his miserable offspring, liecause he was morally as well as physically insane. The unfortunates were geutly con veyed to the Doctor's ample carriage, and the poor, wretched mother looked after us, as we rolled away, with a long ing, eager, anxious gaze that I doubt not will haunt my dying hours. We found the asylum commodious, well-ordered and comfortable. A come ly matron presided over the idiotic ward, and received my helpless addition to her fold with motherly attention. The boys were equally well provided for in another department, and we wend ed our way homeward with the con scious satisfaction of having done our duty. Life went on in the usual routine for a week or two, except that I was now en gaged in preparing manuscript for my employer, surprising myself with my Ideal creations, and winning much laud ation from my liberal patron. finally Mrs. Armstrong came home. She was much changed, having devel oped into a coqiulcnt, fretful, fault-find ing creature, who soon managed to make her home ,too hot for me. I did not blamo her, as I knew of no hold that I deserved to keep upon her sympathy; so myself and children soon removed to quiet lodgings, preparatory to my ex pected return to Oregon. Then I found that Madam Gossip had been busy with my name. Foolish, chattering magpies said that I was alienating Dr. Arm strong from his wife! And so rapidly did this unrighteous slander grow that I was horrified. x wonder to-dav If nconle who are ever ready to misjudge others have not somewhere a hidden chapter of personal infirmities, which they thus seek to hide? Certain it is that tales of scandal met my sister's car, and were by her be lieved; consequently we became person ally estranged, although she, poor, stricken child, was compelled to con tinue in possession of the home I had provided, because site had no where else to go. Her reason for suspecting my virtue was by no means original. She said that "all women who wanted to vote were free lovers. That was enough for her." "But how do you know that, Sarah ?" "Mienry says so. lie says mat no woman who has any self-respect will want to meddle In men's affairs." "Well, Henry Is reliable authority; I must admit that! But, tell mc Sarah, how much bad whisky did lie have aboard when he uttered that remarkable "You !" (I can't repeat the word.) "You shall not abuse my husband! I won't stand it!" and my righteous sister slammed the door in my face. Vc never met again. Her husband Is dead now, and she has found refuge in the asylum with her children as matron of one of the ward: I have educated her sensible children, and they all are doing well. But she, poor ignorant victim of prejudice, lias cast me oil forever,, because of her in sane Ideas against the "woman move ment," whose rising spirit alone saved her and hers from actual starvation in the dark days when her lord and master proved a helpless inebriate. During all this time I had not once essayed to visit the home of my child hood. So saered to my vivid memory i had ever been my idea of its surround- j ings, and so well did I know of the great changes that time had wrought in all the passing years, that I bail no heart to destroy the sweet Illusion.
