Kot only kael her fat er evinced his stern opposition to her lover, but had reviled him. TLuv -2. too hard ! 'What can he have against Rob ert r she sobbed. When Alice had left the dinin: room. Mrs. Warden asked her hus band whom he alluded to. ' Jack Carpente'-,"' he replied, in dignantly. "1 have seen her with him seve; al times, and I only jes 1 erday learned that he saw her home from tho party last week." " I n.n shocked at her taste ! " said "Irs; Warden. "It must be looked aft r;" he re ioined. " L would not have her J . , ..-it 11 J 11rT marry that idie ic-uow ior nan 1 m worth ! " " It would be dreadful ! agreed Mrs. Warden. Alice Warden had a lover, an in dustrious and energetic young man, than whom none in the neighbor hood gave brighter promises. Tho t wo were very much devoted to each other. His name was Robert Og den, not Jack Carpenter. There was a misunderstanding. Yonntf Carpenter happened to be in Miss Warden's society several times of Lite, and she had treated him pleasantly because they were old schoolmates. He had conduct ed her home from the party, but it was because Robert Ogden had met with a slight accident, and was obliged to be helped ivme himself. Jack Carpenter, though of a good familv. and himself a p-ood hearted fellow, was a little inclined to rakish ness, and was not a desirable match for a young girl, when ifc came down to the matter 01 marrying, jir. Warden realized (hie, and com ing 1 o the knowledge of his friend liness coward Alice, jumped to the conclusion that he was her accepted lover. 0 it was Jack Carpenter he meant when he warned her against that fellow, but she naturally thought it was Robert Ogden. "it's too bad,'' she said to herself a hundred times that day. "It's un hlst it's cruel ! There is'nt a stain on his chancier; and yet oh, I'll not simd it ! Her resolution was formed. She determined to resist parental au t aoritv. 1 1 er first course was t go to her father and ask him to recon sider not to decide hastily to hear her to lie wouldn't listen. She . implor ed. He stormed. She grw de fiant. He raved threatened to Robert, She told him all. "What can he have against me ? " he wondered. "I cannot imagine." "I will go to him, and " "No, no; do not." She thought of her father's terrible anger, and dreaded a possible encounter. "Do not, Robert. Promise me that you won't." And he premised. Well, what was to be done? Give each other up ? Never ! A thousand unreasonable and obstinate parents should not. stand in their way. They would elope. They would. The plan was not original. It was "old but good." A number of these stolen meet ings followed. It was happiness ; their plans were finally matured. Alico came home one day with a mysterious parcel in a newspaper. She carefully concealed it from sight, took it to her room and locked it in a trunk. Daily she made fre cment journeys to her room, which was at the rear t f the building, third story, t-trange things were going there, very slily. Keys rattled trunks opened and closed a solita ry valise appeared and disappeared at intervals. A beautiful moonlight came. Mr. 'arden softened a little, and offered to take Alice out riding in his bug gy. She declined did'nt feel well, and retired to her room at 8 o'clock. "That g'rl," said Mr. Warden, "is still moping ab tit that fellow." He spoke as 11 he thought it quita won ierful that two whole weeks had not effaced her love. She'll get over it," said Mrs. Wai'den. How strange h w preposte rous, said Air. arden, "that a girl of her bringing tip and surroundings should be willing, if allowed, to throw herself aw iy on one so worth less ! " "it is" "ihe more so," pursued Mr. War den, "that there are many marriage able young men of better promise. There s Rob Ogden, for example, an esamplary young man; buc 1 dare say she wouldn't look at him. Girls have no sense." "True." They talked sometime on the sub ject. Meantime the pretty "invalid had repaired to her room, locked herself in, and taken a s?at by the window On the floor, at her feet, were a carpet bag, utterly stuffed, and that mysteri' us parcel. And she sat watching tho moon with as much uneasiness as though she had feared it was about to burst and endanger their house wi h flying fragments. . When a distant clock struck nine her nervousne-s was heightened, and she quite trembled whcii she saw a haman loriu appeu- 011 the top of the garden wall, and descend into the garden, very awkwardly. It also stumbled over vines and fell, but get up again It halted tinder a peach tree, and immediately a sound came up fr m the spot. It was a desperate imit:i tion of a cricket's chirp, but it would have passed for the tcreech of an owl as well. 1 It was a signal. Alice lighted a match, and imme diately blew it out. That was a signal, too. It con veyed to the form in the garden that the parents were still in the front of the house, and that the coast was clear. The form then boldly ap proached the building, and stood almost tinder the window. "Alice, dear ! " ascended fr m the form, in a cautious whisper. "Yes, Robert,,' for the form was Robert Ogden 's. NUMBER 43 the angry father. Alice and her m ther both scream ed. "Mr. Warden," said Robert, "von may kill me, but you fchall not tear Alice from me. 1 love her, and ehe ia mine throughout a 1 eternity. He stood in the moonlight, a r o bler picture than Ajax, while Alice sprang before him to receive the fatal bullet, if need be; but the sharp report did not split the night air. Mr. Ywirden lowered his revolver, and took a step backward, with every expression of astonishment. "Why why I declare ! ' "What ? " asked Mrs. "Warden. Alice and Robert ftared at tho old gentleman with wonder. "This isn't the fellow?" exclaimed Xr. Warden. "Isn't who?" asked Mr. Warden. "Why, 'lisu't Jack Curpenteo." "Weil, who said it was lather ?" ask ed Alice, whose pcrcej.rjve f;.euliies weie now suddenly awakened to the t-ntii. Wis. Warden stored at Mr. Warden. lie stated at i er. Theu thev both tired at the young peoide. Robert Ocbu l-eao. to see (hat theee was some mistake. 'Why, father," said Alice, "did you think it was Jack Caiptn'er?" "I I yes," pttiuimend Mr, War dcti. A'.iee now 1 uglied outright. With a rapidity cf ; l.nuht. for which women are reumrkaclo under some cireu.i: siances, she traeed ihe whole blunder. 'Vein legiuniue; to e- d, and it struck lic-r as :li;irmifigly ludicrous. " 1 y, I though ert wi.eti " "No fo uo !''
