"Come, John," said I, cheerfully, j(
"it really is time to go; if you stay tj
any longer I shall be afraid to come r
down and lock the door after p
You." I
My visitor rose-a proceeding h,
that always reminded me of the p
genii emerging from the copper r
vessel, as he measured six foot w
three-and stood looking reproach- ti
fully down at me.
"You are in a great hurry to get C
rid of me," he said. t<
Now I didn't agree with him, for
he had made his usual call of two n
hours and a half; having, in coun- F
try phrase, taken to "sitting up". y
with me so literally that I was c
frequently at my wits'. end to sip- I
press the yawn that I knew would
bring a troop after it.
He- was a fine, manly looking
fellow, thi's John Cranford, old for
his age-which was the rather boy.
ish period of twenty-two-and
every way worthy of being loved.
t) b
But I dida't love him. I was seven
years his senior; when instead of
letting the worm of concealment
prey on his damask'cheek, he ven
tured to tell his love for my mature
self, I remorselessly seized an Eng- g
lish prayer book, and pointed c
sternly to the clause, "A man may (
not marry his grandmother." That d
was three years ago, and I added
encouragingly :
"Beside, John, you a child, and s
don't know your own mind."
"If a man of nineteen doesn't .A
know his own mind," remonstrated li
my lover. "I would like to know g
who should. But I will wait for y
you seven years, if you say so
fourteen-as Jacob did for Rachel." I
"You forget;*' laughing at hisin
way of mending matters, "that a t<
woman does not improve with age.
But seriously, John, this is absurd; tl
yon are a nice.boy, and I like you ca
-but my feelings toward you are
more those of a mother than a tl
wife." d
- The boy's eyes fiashed indig
Antly, and before I could divine a
intention he had lifted me from n
~t where I1 stood and carried ti
me fashion to the sofa, at a
the o & the room.a
"I .coul st find it in my ft
heart to shake t-1he muttered,
as he set me ~wn with emphasis. n
This was r her like the court- e
ship of William of Normandy, and d
matters prouiised to be quite~ex- t<
"Don't do that again," I said f<
with dignity, when I recovered my t<
breath. tl
"Will you marry me !" asked n
John, somewhat threateningly. a
"Not just at present," I replied.
"The great, handsome fellow," I ti
thcught, as he paced the floor rest- fr
lessly, "why couldn't he fall in love t:
with some girl of fifteen, instead of ~
setting his affections on an old ,
maid like me? I don't want the boy ci
on my hands, and won't have him !'
"As to your being twenty-six,"
pursued John, in answer to my ~
thoughts, "You say it's down in the
family Bible, and I suppose it must
be so; but no one would believe it;
and I don't care if you are fortyc
You look like a girl of sixteen, and
yu are the only woman I shall F
ever love."d
0 John, John ! at least five mil
lions of men have said the same a
thing before in every known lan- '
guage. Nevertheless, when he fairly t
breaks down and cries, I relent- a
for I am disgracefully soft-hearted n
-and weakly promise then and
there that I will either keep my a
own name or take his. J
And John looked radiant at this b
oncession, for love is a very dog c<
in the manger. It was a comfort a
to know that if he could not gather o
the flower himself, no on else it
A sort of family shipwreck had
rafted John to my threshold. Oar
wn household was sadly broken
ip, and I found myself, compara.
ively young in years, with a half
avalid father, a large house, and
cry little money. What more
atural determination than to take
oarders? And among the first
rere Mr. Cranford and his son
,nd sister, who had just been
rrecked themselves by the death
f the wife and mother in a foreign
nd-one of those sudden, unex
ected deaths, that leave the sur
ivors in a dazed condition, because
t is so difficult to imagine the gay
rorlding who has been called hence
ito another state of being.
Mr. Cranford was one of my ad-.
iirations from the first. Tall, pale.
,ith dark hair and eyes, he re
iinded me of Dante, only that he
as handsomer; and he had such
general air of knowing every
Aing worth knowing (without the
ast pedantry. however) that I was
nite afraid of him. He was evi
ently wrapped up in John, and
atient to his sister-which was
sking quite enough of Christian
biarity under the sun, for Mrs.
hellgrove was an unmitigated nui
xnce. Such a talker! babbling
f her own and her brother's affairs
-ith equal indiscretion, and treat
ig the latter as though he were an
icapable infant.
They stayed with. us three years
nd during that time I was fairly
ersecuted about John. Mrs. Shell
rove wrote me a letter on the sub
et, in which she informed me
iat the whole family were raady to
ceive me with open arms-a pros
ect that I did not find at all al
iring. They seemed to have their
earts set upon me as a person
eculiary fitted to train John in the
ay he should go. Everything, I
as told, depended on his getting
ic right kind of a wife.
A special interview with Mr.
ranford, at his particular request,
)uched me considerably.
"I hope," said he, "thatyou will
ot refuse my boy, Miss Edna.
[e has set his heart so fully upon
ou, and you are everything that I
:uld desire ingdaughter. I want
me one to pet, I feel sadly lone
r at times, and I am sure you
-ould fill the vacant nich."
I drew my hand away from his
%ress, and almost felt like hating
ohn Cranford. Life with him
ould be one of ease and luxury;
at I decided that I had rather
eep boarders.
Net long after this the Cranford's
ncluded to go to housekeeping,
ad Mrs. Shellgrove was in her
lory. She always came to lun
eon in her bonnet, and gave min
te details of all that had been
one and talked of about the house
i the last twenty-four hours.
"It is really magnificent," said
de lengthening out each'syllable.
Brother has such perfect taste.
nd he is actually furnishing the
brary, Miss Edit , after your sag
estion. You s.. we look upon
on quite as one u. the family."
"That is very good of you," I re
lied, shortly; but I certainly have
o expectations of ever belonging
> it."
Mrs. Sheligrove laughed as
2ough I had perpetrated an ex
ellent joke.
"Young ladies always deny these
ings, of course; but John tells a
ifferent story."
I rattled tie cups and saucers
ngrily; and my thoughts flew off,

"Mr. Cranford," was announced
one evening. and I entered the par
lor fully prepared for an overdose
of John, but found myself con
fronted by his father.
He looked 'Very grave, and in
stantly I imagined all sorts of
things, and reproached myself for
my coldness.
"John is well ?" I gasped finally,
"Quite well," was the reply, in
such r cind tone that I felt sure
there was something wrong.
What it was I cared not, but
poured forth my feelings impe
tuously to my astonished visitor.
"He must not come here again !"
I exclaimed. -I do not wish to see

I glanced at him. and the room
seemed swimming around-every
thing was dreadfully unreal, I
tried to sit down, and was carried
tenderly to a sofa.
"Shall it be Edna Carrington or
Edna Cranford ?" he whispered.
"You need not break your promise

to be as tender as possible, for I

"The boy is father of the man;" and
the Cleveland, Ohio, Farmer offers
this good advi to aspiring boys:
"The highess tainment for you,
my boy, is to be a man. This
world is full of counterfeits. But
it is a grand thing to stand upright
in defence of truth and principle.
When persecutions come some
hide their faces until the storm
passes by; others can be bought
for a mess of pottage. From such
an one turn away. But stand by a
friend; be a man; do not run away
when danger threatens to overwhelm
him or yourself. Think for your
self. Read good books and read
men's faces. The eye is the win

hold your tongue. If opposition
comes, meet it manfully. If success
crowns your efforts, bear it quietly.

his conversation is -not caUculated
to stimulate Western .excursions.
He wore a shabby ulster, long hair
and a pensive, searching expression
of sympathy. He greeted me as
an old adquanintance at once.
"Well," I queried, "how do - yow
like the west?"
"I like it just well enough,".
said he "to remain in the East the
remainder of my days. ILtell you,
the East is good enough for any
man who hasn't a life and death
dispute with the law on hand. In
the East a man above the average
in smartness can get along; but go
West and you find no drones.
Every, man you meet is on the
dead run for wealth and you must
stay'up late, rise up early and bolt
your meals to keep up with the
stragglers in the procession. There's
lots of Money West, and big wages.
I have just come from Colorado,
where I got $10 a day for driving a
mule team. But-"
"That is a very good salary for
that kind of labor?"
"Oh ! it is, is it ?Well, you go
out there and see. Why my friend,
I have paid $1.50 for a cup ofcof'ee,
$2.75 for a glass of beer, and $4
for a horn-handled jack-knife with
one blade. I have been in the
mountains with a party when a
chew of tobacco was put up at a
raffle, at a dollar a chance, and if
the winner of the tobsco finally
got away with it, he had to dodge
the contents of the revolvers of the
party and keep out of sight for a
week. Talk about the West to me !
It is a good place to die in; but I
propose to- live from this time out
where the sun rises early, and there
is no corner on the luxuries of
life !"
