CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
FRIDAY MARCH 6, 1875.
THE OTHER CHARLIE.
BELLA FRENCH
"Charlie, why don't you go and play
with the boys, and not he forever stuck
at my feet?"
Such was Mrs. Grey's Impatient
question OU« day, wnen her little sou
came and seated himself iv tbe parlor,
when his mother was conversing witli
a visitor.
"I would rather be with you than
the boys," he answered, timidly.
"Oh, I never saw such a boy!"
"Is it wrong to wish to be near you,
mamma?" said the child, his nether
lip trembling as bespoke.
"Wrong? Of course not; but you are
old enough to have some manliness
about you. See, yonder are Will and
John Growde on the ice. Hun along
and keep them company; I want to
talk to Mrs. Brown."
He picked up his little cap and went
off'without another word. Mrs. Grey
turned to her visitor.
"Isn't he a queer child?" she asked.
The other raised her sad eyes and
fixed them with such a painful expres
sion on the mother's face that for a
moment Mrs. Grey felt almost offend
ed. She was a sorrowful - looking
woman, this Mrs. Brown.
"I had a son once; but he is gone
now," she said at last, and there were
tears in her eyes.
Mrs. Grey gazed at her wonderfully.
She had not known this before.
"It is a bitter thing to tear open par
tially healed wounds," Mrs. Brown
continued, "but let mo tell you my
story."
" Several years ago I was about to
give a party; a grand affair it was to
be, and my head was almost turned
while making preparations. Master
Charlie (his name was Charlie, too)
was about sixteen years old. He had
never been to school; I had educated
him myself. At home, he was all his
mothei's heart could desire; but he
was shy, and when I forced him into
company he appeared so awkward that
I felt ashamed of him. This was one
reason of my deciding to give a party.
If he was obliged to act the part of
host he would overcome his bashful
ness, I thought. But Charlie never
approved of it.
"I shall be glad when this party is
over," he said, one day; "for since you
have got it into your head, I have lost
my mother."
"Poor little baby!" I responded
slightly provoked at his lack of inter
est; "I wonder how many more years
I shall have you tied to my apron
strings?"
I spoke sneeringly, and instantly a
proud flush overspread his face.
"I will be tied there no longer," he
returned; "I will seek my company iv
the future."
I was frightened at the result of my
words. Still I made no response. My
son, putting on his hat and coat, went
out. It was the first time in his life
he had ever left me without informing
me where he was going.
In time the party came oft. It was
a gay affair, and none were gayer than
Charlie. He was a sort of extremist,
and took no medium stand. After
nings were spent abroad. Fast young
men became his constant companions
and I was left alone to mourn the
change I had wrought. At first, he
made it a rule to be In at night at ten
o'clock; hut after that he began to stay
out later; and daybreak sometimes
found him from home. I tried to ex
postulate, tried to win him back to
his old habits; but my efforts were
unavailing. He had got a taste of new
life, and it held him by a charm. Well
do I remember first night he came
home iv a state of intoxication. It
was his seventeenth birthday—just one
year from the time I had given the
party. I had seen him under the in
fluence of wine once or twice before;
but on this night he had drank so
deeply that some of his companions
had to help him home.
The hours of that night were dread
ful hours of self-reproach- and agony.
I was so glad when morning came to
dispel the gloom—so sail when reason
returned to my erring child. He was
very much ashamed. He said again
and again he would do better; but bis
resolves were worthless. Two nights
later he was again brought home in
toxicated.
After that it was a common occur
rence. He fell lower and lower,squan-.
dered all my ready money, and when
I refused to mortgage my property,
that he might have more, he left me
with an oath. That night a large firm
was robbed,and it was discovered that
Charlie was one of the perpetrators of
the deed. The next morning the town
was wild with excitement, and I was
almost distracted, for my boy had fled.
The news was passed from mouth to
month; my house was searched, and
my ran called a villain; but I had no
pow* to prevent either. No one gave
me a word of sympathy.
"You have only yourself to blame,"
said a blunt old woman who called
during the day. "The boy was happy
at home but you drove him into bad
company."
That night at the hour of twelve, as
I sat alone, a window was opened
softly, and Charlie stepped into the
room. With a glad cry I sprang to
ward him, but he rudely pushed me
away.
"Can you hide me anywhere?" he
said; "The hounds are after me. Had
you given me money yesterday this
would not have been."
"Oh, Charlie!" I cried.
"Yes, mother," he said, sternly.
"You have made me a criminal. I
want to tell you I have secretly mar
ried Kate Hastings. God only knows
what will become of her, as the world
will not believe we are married. She
will be scorned by all."
"Kate was a pretty little creature,
only sixteen years old, innocent as
the violets which grew around her
home. My bleeding heart gave a
quick, painful throb.
"Hark! they are coming. Mother,l
am too young, too wicked to die, but I
must die. farewell!"
I saw his purpose now, for his hand
clutched a revolver; and springing to
my feet, I threw my arms about him
to shield him from himself. But he
shook me off.
The next moment the loud report of
his pistol echoed through the house.
One glance showed me his lifeless form
stretched on the floor. Then existence
was a blank to me.
When I awoke to consciousness the
morning sun was shining, and the
house was filled with people. But
even justice was satisfied, and I was
left alone with the dead.
All day, tearless and motionless, I
sat beside the mangled corpse. Some
people kinder than the rest, came in
to make preparations for the funeralr
and passed silently out; but I did not
need them.
Kate Hastings came just after dark.
She was dressed in deep mourn inland
her face was so ghastly that it startled
me.
"You, too, have come to reproach
me?" I said.
"No, mother. You Buffer enough
without my reproaches. I have come
to watch with the dead."
"I wish to watch alone," she re
turned. "It is my right, I am his
wife."
How calm she was! There was not
even a tremor of the voice to tell how
she suffered..
"Yes,itis your right,my poorchild!"
I said. "It gives me another pang to
give him up, even to my (laughter;
still I do It."
She looked up quickly.
"He has told you?"
"Yes."
"Yet you speak kindly to me and do
not condemn us?"
A sad but beautiful smile for a mo
ment lighted her features. She
raised one of my hands and kissed it
reverently.
"Thank you," she said. "Some
time you will be glad for having
shown this kindness to one so much
iv need of it. Now, mother, leave
me."
I left the apartment,but not to retire.
All night I sat on the outside of the
door, hoping that Katie would bid me
enter, hut no such summons came.
Daylight returned, and tlie busy
world again moved; still I heard no
movement in the chamber of death.
At last my anxiety became so great
that I opened the door and glanced In.
The girl knelt by the corpse, appar
ently asleep. Softly I stole forward
and raised the drooping head. But uo
sad eyes met my gaze; nothing but
the white face, the staring orbs of a
corpse. Katie had died by her own
hand, as a bottle which she clutched
proved.
The next day they buried the pair—
my erring son and his child-wife —in
one grave, and as the clods fell on his
coffin, the brightness of my life went
out forever.
Mrs. Brown cauld say no more, for
her sobs choked her utterance. Her
listener was also deeply affected,
as her pale face and tearful eyes
showed.
Leaving the bereaved mother for a
moment, Mrs. Grey stole softly to the
door and called:
" Charlie."
The child heard her, aud came
quickly to her side.
" What is it, mamma?"
"It is lonesome without you, dar
ling," she said, drawing him to her.
" Then you love me, mamma ?"
"Love you? Oh, Charlie!"
Her arms were about him now, and
she was sobbing ou his shoulder.
"Did anybody tell yflu about those
bad hoys?" he asked, wonderingly.
"They have got a flask of whiskey,
m a in ma."
"Thank God! you are saved, my
darling!" she cried hysterically.
She drew him closer to her, she
clung to him, she showered kisses on
his wondering face; but never, until
he was a man, did she tell him the
history of that other Charlie, whose
childhood and his hud been so much
alike; and how, by the knowledge of
the other Charlie's unfortunate career,
he had been saved by her, perhaps,
from a like fate.
