With the Best Intentions.
There's no doubt about it tliat Rob
inson was a good lellow at heart, and
meant well; but it's astonishing what
an amount of trouble a man may bring
upon himself by undertaking too much
for his fellow-creatures. 1 don't sup
pose there was another man in our
store that took the interest Robinson
did in the different wardrobes of his
fellow-clerk. If a man got a new hat,
Robinson noticed it right away; wanted
to know where it was bought, when,
and why, and generally concluded by
saying that if the purchaser had con
sulted him, he might have made a bet
ter bargain. And I've no doubt he
would. Robinson would have made it
& point to favor him with his influence
and experience, both of which were
considerable. The same way with
coats, or pants, or boots, or anything 1
But, notwithstanding all this, very few
of our boys consulted Robinson in these
matters; they generally bought their
articles with a reckless indiscrimina
tion that was painful to a man consti
tuted as Robinson was. It seemed hard,
when a man took the interest in his
fellow-creatures that Robinson did,
that his motives should be miscon
strued and unappreciated. I remem
ber when I bought that new ulster of
, mine, 1 disliked, for some reason or
other, to see Robinson. I had a ridic
ulous aversion to telling him just
where I got it, and when, and how
much it cost, and what I did with the
other one. It was a kindly sympathy
on Robinson's part, there's no doubt
about that; but it wasn't wanted, as far
as our boys were concerned.
Why don't the fallow mind his own
business?' they said. 'What does he
want tj manage other people's tfont
corns for?' !"t
So I was glad when he told me con-,
fidentially, that he was about to be
married. I felt then that his interest
would be so absorbed in the one object
that it would be impossible to diffuse
it all over the universe.
Robinson seemed to have found a
treasure. Of course everybody thinks
so; but I knew that Robinson would
know more, and see more, and be less
likely to be deceived, than other men,
and he had, as I supposed, gained the
confidence of the family into which he
proposed to marry. I was afraid his
projected mother-in-law might object
to some of Robinson's ways, but he told
me he got on with her splendidly; I
thought she was a remarkable smart
woman, not altogether because she got
on so well with Robinson, but from
Robinson's conversation - I imagined
she must bo very clever.
'The fact is,' said Robinson, 'wo arc
mutually interested in the same topics.
"We sit and talk about domestic mat
ters for hours together, whilo Annie
thrums over her new pieces on tho pi
ano!, and Mrs. Pago has told mo, time
and again, if there's ono thing more
than another she admiros in my char
acter, it's tho interest I take in little
domestic details that most men despise
"or hold in utter indifference You see,
Smith, marriage is a sacrod obliga
tion.' 'Undoubtedly, Robinson.'
'And requires study, Smith. I
wouldn't havo been a successful buyer
if I hadn't inquired into all tho little
intricacies of our lino of business.'
'You certainly can judge of a good
Ah, Smith, tho ono I've secured
now is beyond price. She's just the
kind of goods a man wants to rest, his
eyes upon when he's tired of shams
and shoddios. Annio isn't brought up
to dazzle and deceive Her mother has
taken groat pains to inculcato in her
daughter qualifications of mind and
character that will make her a good
wife and mother. Mrs. Page is an ex
cellent woman, Smith.'
'And I suppose her daughter is like
'Well, no, Smiih. Sho can't con
verse and reason as hor mother can,
nor has sho her mother's appreciative
qualities. - Annie's mind is less astute.'
'Well, she's young yet.'
'She's as simple and pliable as a little
child. I'm a happy man, Smith.'
I was delighted to hear him say so,
nd told me so, and at the wedding. I
expressed, it as ray opinion that his
happiness would last. I was charmed
with his wife. Sho seemod such a nice,
jolly little creature, so unaffected and
simple in hor manner, and had a won
derful magnet about her. Sho was as
plump and round as a little partridge,
with big black molting eyos and a
pretty littlo mouth. I can't say I was
o much drawn toward her mother.
She was a fine looking woman, with a
deep voice, and aometiang very firm
about the contour of ber jaw. Mrs.
Page bad more of what they call char
acter in ber face that ber daughter
would ever hv; but I harent the
admiration for a face with .character
that some men have. Robinson always
said be liked that kind of thing, and
he ceruinly bad it in bis mother-in-
law. Robinson spent the better part
of an hour talking with ber that night,
while I was chatting with his wife. I
came away convinced that marriage
must be a very pleasant thing, with
little wile like Robinson's, and my
bachelor quarters looked exceedingly
dingr and forlorn.
I don-t know how it was, bnt I took
an extraordinary interest in Robinson's
marriage, and was sorry to see a cloud
on tbe matrimonial horizon before six
months were over.
We've gone to housekeeping, you
know,' said Robinson. I was afraid
Annie would want to board at home
with her mother, but Mrs. Pago agreed
with me it was better to build a little
nest of our own. She took the kindest
interest in everything, and wanted to
go house-hunting with Annie, and to
help ber pick out the furniture. Rut I
had already secured a house, and
bourrlit the furniture of a friend of
mine in the business, who wonld favor
me in prices. As to bed linen, car
pets, and things of that sort, I got
them here in the store at cost. In
Heaven's name Smith, is there any
reason why a man shouldn't hire his
own house and purchase his own f urni
'None whatever,' I replied, 'ualess
it may be that his wife desires the same
Bat she didn't Smith. Annie said
she was glad to leave it to me. I took
the dear little woman in my arms and
kissed her, and felt my heart lightened
of a heavy load that somehow had rest
ed there since my last interview with
her mother. But Mrs. rage's manner
is yet very unpleasant, Smith very, I
don't want to say that she accuses me
of robbing Annie of any legitimate
happiness, but she conveys some such
impression to inv mind, and it makes
me feel like a malefactor. I'm so fond
of my wife that the thought of depriv
ing her of the smallest joy is misery to
Well, these littlo trifles will all come
right, Robinson. It isn't as if your
mother-in-law lived with you.'
'She's only round the corner, Smith,
thought of that when I took the
house that it would be so comfortable
for Annie to live near her old home,
and have the attention and advice of
her mother. As Heaven is my judge,
Smith, I have tried to take every bur
den from my wife. I've opened ac
counts with the neighbor grocer, but
cher, baker, and hired an excellent ser
vant. I leave a generous margin for
sndxie?, 'which I look into rigidly at
the first oft every month, and settle
with the other accounts when we begin
with a clear fresh record. A woman
certainly ought to be happy when she
has nothing to do but enjoy herself.
I've even persuaded her to put all her
little expenses down in my book, so
that she knows where every penny of
her money goes; and, as I said before,
I take care of the household expenses
myself. The servant comes to me ev
ery morning for orders before I go to
business, so that Annie scarcely knows
what she's going to have for dinner.
Could a man do more for his wife than
'Perhaps he might better do less
Robinson. I'm only a miserable bache
lor myself, and know nothing about
women; but the question is, if you're
not taking too much upon yourself.'
'A man can't do too much, Smith,
for the woman he adores.'
Just then a customer came in, and I
was glad to get away. Robinson . evi
dently had the best intentions in the
world. He loved his wife. He even
esteemed his mother-in-law. L never
saw a man work so hard in what he
considered his line of duty, and so ut
terly fail to recommend it to others, as
poor Robinson. But ho began to be
brighter and apparently happier. The
anniversary of the wedding was close
at hand, and he was interested in a
gift to his wife.
'I was puzzled what to get,' said Rob
insbn. 'You see she's got almost every
thing, Smith; hor wedding presents
embraced so many little adornments
and knicknacks. At last I hit upon a
black silk dross a . woman can't have
too many, and I can get a bargain
down in the store just now. She said
she'd rather have the money, and buy
it outside; but I persuaded her that
would bo foolish. So she's coming in
to choose the trimming this afternoon,
and if sho comes while I'm out, you'll
take care of her, won't you?'
'With pleasure,' I said. And it so
happened that she did come while Rob
inson was away, and seemed to bring
all tho sunshine with her.
I told her that her husband had left
her in my caro and begged her to use
me in any way that suggested itself to
her; that it would be my happiness to
I suppose there was onhonost fervor
about this declaration that impressed
Mrs. Robinson. It had so happened
that I was able to show her some little
favors and attentions in return for the
many that her husband had done for
me. I had told her I was under obli
gations to Robinson. Of course I didn't
explain that it wa3 in his desiring to
help me select my hats and coats and
boots, it wasn't necossary to enter into
these little details, but she understood
that a natural gratitude on my part led
me to send her in return a few littlo
trifles, like bouquets; or new books, or
music, or opera tickets, once in a whilo.
So she knew the declaration of mine
that day at the store, that I would be
happy to serve her, came straight from
any heart. . .-
'You are so good and kind.' She
aaid. Then all at once an eager wist
f ulaess leaped into her eyes. 'I wish I
could dare ask you to do me a favor,
Mr Smith a very great favor, she
'Do.' I replied. ! won't abuw your
'Oh! I wonder if it will bo right?"
she said, clasping her little gloved
hands, and looking up in my face with
a charming air of indecision, 'I wonder
if I ought to do such a thing T "
'The fact that you desired to do it is
a proof that it is blameless.' I replied.
'1 do desire it, ever o much,' she
said,' and it is perfectly blameless.'l've
sot my heart on giving my household a
present upon our marriage annivers
ary.' 'Is that all, Mrs. Robinson?'
'All !' she replied, tapping her 'foot
with hor parasol, with an air of vexa
tion. She was looking upon the flooi
now, and a warm color burned in her
cheeks. 'It's so bard to explain it to
you,' she said. 'I don't like to borrow
money of mamma, because she don't
understand my husband, and makes so
many unpleasant remarks, and it's
quite a large sum I want for the pres
ent. I'm afraid it will cost ten dol
lars.' Here shs hesitated, and her col
or g rew more and more vivid.
'Ten dollars isn't a very large sum,'
I said. I had decided now that she
wanted to ask me to lend her the
money, but didn't know how to go
about it, and I was at a loss how to
help her. I had two crisp five dollar
bills in my vest pocket, but how to get
them into her hand was a problem. In
the mean while, time was flying and
Robinson would be back.
'You understand my husband Mr.
Smith. You know how kind and good
he is to me. He has told me how he
confides in you. You must know he is
ihe dearest and best of husbands.
'Of course I do, Mrs. Robinson. We
are likebrothers,' I said, withfhtcnse
'I hate even to deceive him lor a mo
ment, Mr. Smith. Of course I shall tell
him afterward; but I want to surprise
him. I wouldn't care to give him any
thing if it wasn't a surprise.'
'Of course you wouldn't, Mrs. Rob
inson. Any other way would be so
hum-drum and common-place.- I know
just how you feel about it.' V.
'And ray husband is so thoughtful,
ho is so anxious to relieve me of every
care, that he knows just where every
penny goes; and, oh dear, it's too bad!'
Big tears gathered in her beautiful
eyes; it was too much forme.
'1 understand it all, Mrs. Kobinson,
I blurted out. 'DonreVoVar Hifie
as this,' and I thrust the two five-dol-lar
bills in her hand. ,
She was on her feet in an instant.
White now to her lips, and an awful
expression in her eyes of reproach, rage;
regret, Heaven knows what and all.
The five-dollar bills had dropped on
'Good morning, sir' she said. 'I
have been mistaken in you. Flease tell
my husband I could not wait for him.
Sne was a little woman, but she
seemed about ten feet high as she
swept out of our apartment. Fortu
nately some foreign cases had effectu
ally screened us from observation. It
was some time before 1 could pick up
the bills. I felt stunned, bewildered,
and exceedingly humiliated and mis
erable. I have made an ass of myself
some way, and innocently outraged the
feelings of this excellent little woman
who L was most desirous to serve. : '
When Robinson came back he
thought it so strange that his wife
hadn't waited for him. He wanted to
know when she came, how long she
staid; whether she sat down or stood
up, or said she'd come in again, and if
so, when. At last I was desperate.and
went out into the street. Before I
knew what I was about. I was up .town,
and ringing the bell of the brown-stone
house that Robinson hired. The ser
vant he had selected came to the door
and showed me into the parlor he had
furnished. His wife came right down
to me, and the moment she entered the
parlor, I saw that her good sense and
kind heart had gained their own again.
'Not another word, Mr. Smith, she
said, when I began pouring out apolo
gies and explanations. 'I was 'myself
to blame for :t all. I wanted you to
sell something of mine for me, and
with the money help me to get the
present at cost. There, now, that's the
whole of it. If I had enly told vou at
once instead of beating about the bush
in that way ! But I've given up that
idea, bocause he'd be sure to know it I
parted with anything, he's so interest
ed ; he'd know if a silver thimble was
gone. But I've hit upon another plan '
and I'll tell you all about it, if you'd
like to hear.'
'Of course I' d like to hear,' I ex
claimed. 'You are an adorablo little
woman to forgive that little blunder of
mino. I was so miserable' to have of
fended you; and your husband, 1 ad
ded, for 1 thought 1 had noticed a
growing rigidity in her mannor from
tho word 'adorable,' 'we are like broth
ers, you know, llrsv Robinsoh twin
brothers 1' ; '.
'Well, I'll tell you what I've decided
to do, Mr. Smith : I had to take ma
into my confidence, for she's going to
help me. You know I'm to have a
new black silk, and it costs a good deal
of monoy to havo it made. Mrs. Jones,
my dressmaker, wouldn't do it for loss
than twonty dollars, and mamma and
I will make it ourselves, and take the
money we'd have to give Mrs. Jonex,
for tho present. That will bo roally
my own money, because I shall earn it
ny vTy owa Isn't it a capital
Splendid !' I said; and shortly af
ter I took my leave, thinking all the
way down to the store what an amount
of trouble Kobinson innocently gave
that littlo wife of his.
Wo settled upon a dressing case for
Robinson before I left that lay, and
Mrs. Robinson and I had to go togeth
er to look at tho different varieties of
these articles, and I didn't want her to
choose anything in a hurry, and then
be sorry afterward; and altogether it
was astonishing hoir absorbed I be
came in tbe purchase of that dressing
case. I thought of nothing else.
The anniversary ol Robinson's wed
ding came upon a Saturday evening,
and the next morning 1 was walking in
tho park, thinking it all over how
happy Robinson must havo been when
she surprised him with the dressing
esse, and what a confoundedly lucky
fellow he was. anyway. .1 fell into
quite a sentimental mood. I suppose
the scene around me had something to
do with it It was one of those de
lightful mornings in May, when happy
ripples run through the grass, and the
young shrubs burst suddenly into
bloom and verdure. Birds sang gayly
in the hedges, and the air was full of a
vague perfume. Some white-winged
butterflies flitted by. I took off my
hat. Though a little bald, I enjoyed
the soft radiance of the sunshine. I be.
gan to understand how at certain sea
sons a man might slip into rhyme, or
All at once this celestial silence was
broken by an advancing figure. It was
Robinson and alone. His head was
bowed , his hat jammed over his eyes ;
the only part of his face that was at
first visible was of an ashen hue. His
whole aspect was one of unutterable
misery and despair.
'Good heavens, Robinson,' I cried,
rushing up to him and seizing his arm,
'has anything happened to your wife?'
'To my wife? Yes,' he said ; and I
sank into one of the iron benches. I
thought she was dead, and was re
lieved to hear the next sentence. Re
lieved though startled.
'My wife has left me Smith. She's
gone home to her mother.'
'Left yon? Gone home-to her moth
er? Why wasn't last night your anni
Yes, that was how it came about;
that was the way I found her out,
Smith. She's deceived me, shameful
ly and porsistently deceived me, and
yet, miserable wretch that I am,' added
Robinson, sliding into the seat beside
me, and covering his face with lis
hands, 'I love her still.'
'You have deceived yourself in some
way.' 1 cried, naturally indignant i nd
incredulous. -It is some miserable mis
take of your own. I know that your
wife is the soul of integrity and hon6r.'
'God bless you, Smith V he cri id,
grasping my hand fervently. 'Woi ild
to heaven I could believe what you sny!
But the facts are too convincing. Up
to yesterday I was the happiest man in
the universe. I went home early, and
on my way stopped at Mrs. Jones', my
wife's dressmaker, to see if her black
silk was done.' j
'What? I shrieked.
Her black silk, you know,' said Rob.
mson 'the one I told you about. She
said at least a dozen times that it was
in the dressmaker's hands. I gave her
twenty dollars long ago to pay for it,
and I thought I'd step in on my way
home, so that there would be no disap
pointment. That was perfectly natur
al, wasn't it Smith?'
'Go on,' I groaned.
'I went to the dressmaker's, rang the
bell; Mrs. Jones came to the door, and
she said that she hadn't seen my wife
for six months, that she had never
heard anything about a black silk
dress. I was stunned, bewildered. I
tried to persuade her she was wrong;
she shut the door in my face. I hur
ried home, naturally vexed and indig
nant. My wife came to meet me, smil
ing and fond. Smith it breaks lay
heart to think of it. I asked her about
the black silk. Was it done? Not quite
she said. Was it at the dressmaker's?
Yes. At Mrs. Jones' ? Yesjbutwhy
was I so troubled about it ?'
'Because, madam,' I cried, 'you have
deceived me; I have just stopped at
your dressmaker's. She hasn't seen
you for six months.'
'My wife turned pale, called, to her
mamma and fell back into Mrs. Page's
arms in a dead faint.
'Mrs. Page then flew into a violemt
rage, and abused me shamefully. She
used language, Smith, that it is painful
to repeat. She called me a sneak and
a petty tyrant, a spy, and a miser. She
declared that her daughter never had
a penny that I didn't know when it was
coined, and how sho spent it; that An
nie had no more to do with her own
house than a Dutch doll, and the soon
er she was out of it the better. She
sent my servant for a cab, and beforo
my wife had fully recovered, she took
her away. I have paced tho floor all
night, Smith. ; I shall never go- back
to the store again. I'm a ruined man,
for there's something behind all this,
Smith; , my servant told me last night
that my wife has been in the habit of
seeing a gentleman, of going out with
him, and remaining a couple of hours;
he is stout and dark, a little bald and,
1 feurst out laughing..; 'That's me!'
I' cried. 'Look at me, Robinson. I'm
the man !'
Robinson glared at mo in a dazed
but desperate way. I saw that he was
upon tho point of frenzy, and hastened
to tell him all about his dressing-case.
Beforo I was half through he had ab
solutely thrown his arms about mo and
cried like a baby.
'My mothcr-m-law was right,' and
be cried. -I have beep a sneak ant a
spy. and perhaps atniser."
You meant welL Robinson; but it's
better to let woman manajre their own
'It's better to mind one's business.'
said Robinson. -I ve been a miserable
meddler, and deserve to be punished.
Before heaven. 5mith, it was wiih the
best intentions.' - t
'I know it, Robinson.'
But Ml never do it sgain never !
And now let's go after tny wife you
and I can explain the thinir to Mrs.
Page. I don't wonder sho hates me.
Smith. Poor little Annie ! What a
life she hss led ! I wonder if she re
mains fond of me.'
'Well, I can vouch for that,' I re
plied, honestly enough; and I persuad
ed him to stop at home and tidy op a
bit, get shaved and have tome break
fast." That servant must go,' said Robin
'Let your wife hire the next one,' 1
said. And just as I imagined, when
we reached Robinson's, there was the
dear little woman waiting for him. He
fell on his knees at her feet, and began
his protestations. I thought it best to
leave them alone together; but how ex
ceedingly lonely and forlorn my bache
lor chamber did look when I reached
