rled the first time love was as fresh
as the dewdrops that lay on the
graass at .milking time in the
morning, dreams as roesate-as the
glory that flooded the eastern hills
as the cows were walking down
the lane. One day we sat by the
trout brook tossing pebbles idly
into the water, almost hidden by
the tall grass that towered around
us. Laughingly, he pulled this in
from the sides and tied our hands
together with the string bands. At
length I cut the grass on each side
of the knot and sprang away from
him, but I still keep, after several
years, the knot and the memory of
the bands that tied it. Thus did he
tie my life to his own and weave
himself into my heart.
The exquisite bliss of our early
married life and tpe perfect con
tent of our later years are Omeable
but once in a lifetime. Our one
chamber set was imitation cherry,
but it was far more beautiful then
in our eyes than our rosewood and
mahogany have been since. We
had only seven rooms, but we
took more pleasure in furnishinng
them than a millionaire takes in
furnishing his palace. And when
everything was in place, how cozy
the nest was!
What times we had togfeer,
playing, workiing together, and
really getting acquainted. I think
heaven will hold no more sacred joy

that we were not to he much longer

hour came he nearly lost me.

father, as to me he was an ideal
husband, and it was years after
he died of typhoid before anyone
could take his place.
The world has not dways been
kind to me, because hny second
marriage was not a muccess, be

But always the memory of my

me sweet. Again and again I
