1 1 H"themselves •if®* 0 Jtlaired Lady [Original.] •V't",! At the bouse in the mountains cs|(wns a young married woman whose /hair was white as Snow, though there ••i n0^ wrinkle in her face and her cheeks were a rosy red. The guests of the hotel soon came to know ea::li oth •t, and the white haired lady, as we called her, was the life of the house. ®^e 8a'd things in a droll way, made light of inconveniences and misfor tunes and was given to story telling. One evening I ventured to' ask her if there was any cause for her prema turely white hair. A. pained look came on her face, but she could so well as sume any expression that I was "uncer tain if it were genuine. "Thereby hangs a tale," she said, and several persons who had heard the question and reply drew near to hear what was coming. 5 "I was spending a summer at T.,ake she said. "I was engaged to be married at the time, and you know en ^gaged people are as satisfactory to as they are unsatisfactory to every one else. The railway station 'Was half a mile from''the hotel, and ,my lover used to come up once or twice 'a week for a short stay. He arrived on the 7:30 train in the. evening, and I «""always walked to the station to meet him. At first it was quite light at that hour, but toward the end of Au gust it began to grow pretty dark. "One evening I started to make the walk as usual. I was uncertain of the .time and was afraid. I would be late. Hurrying through a wood, I was sud denly halted by a voice: 'What's your hurry "Before me stood the dark form of a man. I couldn't see what he looked Uke or how he was dressed.. I was Yery much frightened, but have no ce ^i^'ipect for those people who collapse on the slightest provocation, so I braced myself to conceal my terror. I replied calmly: '^3 "I'm going to meet the 7:30 train." •"Oh, you are? Reckon yer feller's *'. comin' up from town. Gals don'.t mpst-. -,ly hurry to meet trains for ihother-ln laws and sieh like." -if "You are right," I replied. "My young man Is to come in on the train, ^jl think I'm late. Quite likely it is •i/ already in and I'm liable to meet him any moment. I think I hear his step ^now." This was a pure bluff, intended to -'*let the man understand that if he mo -*•lested me he was liable to be overtaken in the act. "Oh, I know your feller," he replied. "I've seen you and him walkin' from the station many a time. He's not much of a feller." "Will you let me pass?" I said. "If ,'-/,not you may have an opportunity to learn what kind of a 'feller* he is. He '^"jcan^ surely be far away." '"Pon my word, little gal, you're a plucky one. But as for that slab sided, knock kneed lover of yours, I've got something right here to fix him." He put his hand in his pocket and drew out something—I could not see what It was, but of course it must be a pistol—and pointed it right at me. I wanted to shriek, but feared the man would consider' a shriek a call for help and attack me at once, so I forced a laugh—a laugh of contempt for him and his weapon. 5 'It isn't the kind that kills' at forty "•Jtods," he said. "It's a smoothbore. sits pills are not bad to take, especially sif they hit one In the stomach. I could If* make that lover of yours lay down with it—that is, if I poured enough of the contents into him." I laughed again, this tine louder than before. I was nearer to a spasm, ^i -At the same time I fancied that my hilarity would make the fiend believe I considered myself perfectly safe. "Do you suppose," I said, "that el tber be or I would go through this wood |accept we were armed to the teeth?" i| "I had read somewhere of the men of the west, half a century ago, drawing bowle knives from the back of their .necks, and, putting my hand to my IbMd, I pulled out a hairpin. 'By Jove, Cynthia, you're a jlm You should go on the stage. Bat enough of this little farce'— "That was all I beard. I knew the man was my fiance, and the relief was too much for me. I fainted and knew nothing till I saw him bending over holding a flask to my Hps and felt tbe fiery liquor on my mouth. 'For heaven's sake,' be exclaimed. What does this mean? Are you all light again?' 'Why,' I gasped, 'did you draw that ptetol on me?' "PistolI Yon little goose! It's noth- I lag but a 'pocket pistol.' Thank hear fen, I bad It with me!' 'I thought you were a robber,' I tooaned. 'And I supposed you knew me all the time.' "By this time I was somewhat recov ered. I got upon my trembling limbs, and, taking his arm, we walked to the botel." "I see," exclaimed oue of the listen ers, Impatient for the end of the story. "The next morning your hair was White as snow." "Yes it was." 4, "In a single night?" The white haired lady made no reply." Per husband laughed, arose and, going tut of the room, remarked: "All made out of whole elotb." 01 MARTHA V. DARGAN. 4t "t'l iftS»®i DAMES AND DAUGHTERS.
