HER OffK ENEMY.
An extremely pretty girl was Desirco Ls
Strange, and ono who hod many admirers,
but not such as her heart prayed for. Ono
by ono tho poor curates were given their
conge, likewise the. struggling authors and
erratic artists. "When poverty comes in at
the doer love flies out of tho window," was a
maxim in which Desiree La Strange very
"If I cannot marry a rich man I will not
marry at all !" this country vicar's daughter
told herself with a deep drawn sigh; this
girl who was utterly sick of cold shoulder of
mutton and plain boiled rice and treacle,
who had to wear her gowns till they were
threadbare and her shoes till they would
mend no more.
It was puro . accident, of course, merest
chance, tbat just as she reached the old stono
bridge on tho left of tho moor tho pictur
esque, lichen-robed bridge, beneath which
the river danced and rippled as smoothly
often as a limpid woodland stream Daniel
Wcssels sliould suddenly appear.
"Oh, how you startlad me!" cried tho girl,
whereat tho young man laughed and offered
her a penny for her thoughts. "Well, if you
must know, I was thinking of you," she ro
"Thinking of me?'' he echoed, and a deep
flush covered his honest, handsome face.
Something pleasant, I hope, Miss Lo Strange?
Don't" j'ou remember tho ancient adage,
'Talk of tho old gentleman,' etc., and I sup
pose talking holds good for thinking?"
"I thought it was 'Talk of tho angels and
you'll hear their wings,' " said Desiree, shyly.
'Oh, so I am a white-winged angel, am IF
Well, I could scarcely be anything better."
And then, involuntarily it seemed, they
both halted and looked down at tho river
with its edge of fallen leaves and withering
bracken, with its little wavelets all rosy dim
pled and amber-crested beneath the sun's dy
"IIovv pretty those flowers are!" remarked
Daniel presently. "Tho ox-eyed daisies are
"Do you think so? Perhaps Annie might
take them for her parlor vases;" and sho held
tho little bunch up carelessly for acceptance.
He took them with a quiet "Thank you," but
ho did not say ho should give them to Anne,
hislandlady's red-haired granddaughter. In
Daniel Wessel's cyva thero was no girl so
beaut' ful a- Desiree Lo Strange; to him tho
was just iwrfect, with her crown of rippling
hair, almost the color of tho burnished au
tumn leaves, with her scarlet thread of a
mouth and wild-rose tinted cheeks and eyes
deep and blue.
"When I met you just now," he said diffi
dently, "you said you were thinking of me,
Desirco,"' in a half-timid whisper, "my dar
ling, I think of you always!" And now, tho
ico broken, ho told her how there was no
room in his heart for aught but her, his soft
eyes dark with intenso feeling. Eloquently
he pleaded passionately: "You will not
throw away a Jovo like mine; no man will
ever lovo you as I love 3-011, Desiree!' And
ho moved a step forward as though to clasp
hor to him, but tho girl shrank back terrified.
"Oh, how could you mistake my meaning!"
sho exclaimed "I never thought can't you
understand? I was but turning over in my
mind tho probability of j-our eventually com
ing to earo for Jauo or Muriel."
"I could not marry your step-sisters," de
clared Daniel, emphatically. Then, in a low,
earnest tone, so tender, so gentle, so plead
ing, that tho words seemed to find their way
to Dcsireo's heart: "You, dearest, are my
'ideal io:nan;' don't you think you could
learn to care for mo a little? I am a very
young barrister, it is true, but not holly de
pendent 0:1 my profession for a lodging and
crust; besides, Desirco darling, I do not mean
to bo always a briefless barrister. I havo
gono through the usual cramming, my father
is ambitious for me, and who knows? , cr
imps somo day I may rise to eminence. Oh,
don't blight my future."
He opened lib arms as though he would
clasp her to his throbbing heart, aiid keep her
forever, for all time. But tho nex't moment
he had checked himself, his bands dropped
heavily to his sido; for thero was no answer
ing lovo in Desirees face, only a stony, fixed
"How handsome ho is!" tho girl could net
but think'. The perfect face and tho fcrm of
splendid manhood were his. Oh, what a
thousand pities ho bad nono of this world's
wealth! Had ho been only moderately rich
Desiree Lo Strange would havo suffered him
to take her small hand in his broad palm,
and they would have becu eventually
married, and, like tho legends of nursery
daj-s, lived happily ever after. But Dcsireo
Lo Strange did not seo fit so to do. "I could
not marry a poor man," sho said, softly but
firmly. "A barrister's career is so full of dis
appointments and struggles; Jane and Mu
riel have their grandmother's liltlo fortun
which makes them in a mcasuro indepeuden.
I have nothing."
"Only your beautiful face your loving,
gentle heart!"' he whispered tenderly. But sho
broke in with:
"Oh, do not say any more. Tho kindest
thing you can do is to forget me. 1 havo never
cared for you never! Forgive me if I havo
seemed to encourage you."
"Forgive you?"' ho passionately ejaculated,
nnd tho genuine misery in his voice went to
her heart. "Forgive you!" ho lepeated in a
hoarse, low tone, his face at a whito heat, tho
words coming through lips liko set iron. "If
I could promise j-ou riches, would you care
for mo then, Dcsireo 13 Strange? Answer mo
"If you were rich as a merchant prince, or
Indian nabob, I would not marry youl" sho
cried with startling vehemence; but her voico
trembled at tho claw of tho sentence, as
though the heart were denying what the lips
With a sad smile ho turned ft om her, and.
looked down into the waters that wore no
longer gold or crimson flecked.'
Desiree instinctively moved away. She felt
sho had no strength to prolong the scene.
Presently thick rain drops fell with a mel
ancholy, monotonous thud, on the tangle of
fallen leaves; but Dauwl Wcssels did not
Long after D&.i roe's footstep had died
away in the lane he remained standing where
sho had abruptlj- left him, with his arms
folded over the old stone bridge, thereby un
consciously crushing a wealth of beautiful
lichens and fairy fronds.
Down into the angry, frothy waters ho
gazed fixedly, paying no heed to tho ram
drops which fell more heavily every moment.
The shortest way from the common to tho
vicarage was by following tho lieaten path
on tho outskirts of Bramblo Hall, and along
hero Desirco hurried u hile tho sad autumn
rain jittered dismally around on the slend
erly robed trees, on tho wilted harebells, on
tho dying bracken. ho wind piped shrilly
through the reeds and rushes flanking tho
river, and whistled mournfully 'midst the
undergrowth in low, sad noten.
A iwtless deer jweped shyly over tho
paliugs at her; a pheasant w birred in tho
dark trees abovo her head. From tho far
depth of the woodland sounded the solitary
"tap-tap" of a lonely woodpecker and the
half-muffled bay of a deep-mouthed hound.
Tbo world seemed suddenly to havo grown
for Deirco very cheerless, very eerie.
Years passed on, bringing no merchant
prince, no Indian nabob, no wealthy cotton
spinner to tho feet of Desiree Lo Strange,
cruel j-cars, robbing her of kith and kin,
drifting her from homo to home, always
with strangers. A melancholy shadow, a
ghost of tho bright, lovely Desiree Lo Strange
was this world-weary woman this woman
who was so thoroughly changed in all but
name, that tho girls who envied her in her
dazzlin? vouth. and tbo men "n ho raved about
ber, passed her by without a smile or recog
nition. Uninteresting days crawling laggardly ono
after tho other; how sick sho wm of tho
drudgery tho thankless office of teachingl
But she could not starve she dared not die;
and, though life had been ono miserable mis
take from the beginning, and all her brightest
hopes had been crushed, sho plodded on at
her monotonous duties in a dull, apathetic
way, which showed all energy and spirit had
dfcd out of her.
Ono delicious afternoon in May found
Desiree Lo Strango at a houso iu Harley
street, listlessly turning tho leaves of tho
leather-bound books which told how gover
nesses were wanted, very highly accom
plished, for very small salaries.
"A steady, conscientious lady," she read
presently, "fond of the country and quiet
life, wanted for two delicate girls of 6. Ap
ply Lady Wessels, Cranf orth Grange, Wor
cestershire." "Wcssels! Wessels!" murmured Desiree;
"any relation, I wonder, to the Daniel Wes
sels I once knew!" and sho at once made up
her mind to try for tho situation.
Cranforth Grange was a many-gabled
granite-blocked mansion, standing on a
slightly-wooded eminence in a richly tim
bered, undulating park. The avenue, which
led up from the main road, was a good milo
long and shaded by tall beech trees meeting
in an area ovcrneau; ana winding inrougn
the grounds, now flashing in the sun
light, now hiding 'midst tho shadows of tho
drooping silver willows, flowed tho beautiful
Pinkthorno river, bordered with plumy ferns
and tangled briars, with hero and there a
clump of brilliant rhododendrons. Tho wild
ducks loved this river, and the swans seemed
never weary of sailing on its surface; yellow
water lilies floated like miniature islands hero
and there, and the prettiest rustic bridges
spanned it in parts where the waters were
tolerably narrow. At tho far end, under tho
thickest shades of tho willows, nestled on old
boat house, all creeper-smothered and rush
It was a gala day for the whole village a
day of rejoicing when Judge Wcssels came
homo to Cranforth Grange. Tho bells rang
merrily, tho banners waved to and fro "Wel
come, Welcome," in the soft spring breeze,
and now tho carriage dashed up the long
beech avenue, and presently, in a twinkling
it seemed, tho children were springing into
their father's arms and smothering him with
kisses. Kindly, generously, tho years had
dealt with Daniel Wessels; perfectly happy,
too, ho looked to-day with the arms of his fair
haired twins twined about his neck and his
left hand resting on his wife's shoulder.
Desiree, in the background, watched tho joy
ous meeting between husband and w ife, father
and children, and felt a sudden choky sensa
tion riso in her throat, an odd, sharp, sick
ening pain seize her heart, almost talcing her
breath away, and prayed that sho might not
faint that she might not "make a scene."
"Miss Lo Strange our governess," said
Lady Wessels presently.
And then oh, how like a dream it seemed,
meeting the bearded face and shaking tho
large, firm hand of Sir Daniel Wessels.
A minute more and tho judgo, with his
wife mid children, wcro in tho library, where
a cheery log fire olazcd, and Desiree found
herself mounting the wido oak staircase to
her solitary schoolroom. But for her own
folly, sho told herself, she might havo been
queen of this household to-day. How un
bearable tho thought was how maddening!
tor a wbolo year sho had striven to do her
duty, nnd had learned to lovo pretty, gentle
Lady Wcssels, his wife; but sho could not
meet tho judge daily and not betray herself
not let him nnd others seo how acutely she
felt her position. Truo, he had not appeared
to recognize her; but sooner or later ho would
assuredly discover that Desiree Lo Strange,
who flung back his lovo ono autumn evo years
ago, and tho Desirco Le Strange of to-day
were tho same. Chanco had brought her
here under his roof. Supposing by chanco
she died to-night, who would miss her?
And then, mechanically, almost liko ono
farced to act in spite of herself, sho crossed
the room and unlocked tho little medicino
chest which stood en a sideboard. Her eyo
ran over the bottles, and boxes, and china
It was a very small bottlo sho at last took
up, labeled "Chloroform.''
"I havo a bad toothache and headache," sho
murmured, with an odd cmile, "Perhaps this
will mako mo sleep."
"Her own enemy, even to tho last," thought
the judge, looking nt Desirco Lo Strango's
beautiful dead faco with a shadow on his

told him pathetically, better than a thou
sand words, that this was tho Desiree ho had
once loved tho gii 1 who had almost broken
bis heart by tho old stone bridge.
Ho had been very busy all these years so
busj' that tho memory of tho vicar's pretty
daughter bad gradually grown faint and dim.
Yet looking at the diad face now, so lovely
and placid in its last sleep, a mist slowly
gathered in his eyes for ho had loved her
once with all his heart and soul and ho was
grieved to tho depth of his being that her
days should havo ended thus. Philadelphia
Popularity of Lawn Tennis.
There was a timo when no front yard a
dozen feet square was complete without 'a
croquet set. Tho very children played it on
tho commons as they might cricket or base
ball. Lawn tennis seems to bo achieving much
tho samo favor, for a positive craze for it has
developed this summer. It has become so
popular that it b no longer fashionable, and
our aristocrats arc on tho lookout for some
thing to rcplaco it. Meanwhile every other
lawn you pass displays a tennis court, the
boundaries lined off with whitewash on tho
grass and tho net making a fence for the birds
to perch on when, as rarely happens from
dawn to dark, it is not in use. Nor b it tho
shady lawn alone that b consacratcd to the
prevailing mania. You will find players
melting away on tho uqsheltercd seashore,
and bedewing the parched grass of tho moun

bounding and eccentric ball The girls all do

AN ALL-NIGHT HALT IN FRONT OF
A Time Whea the Second Corp Cooked
and Ate aad Slept the Time Away.
What tho Early Dawn Iterealcd to the
And we strode on through tho dense dust
clouds, with parched throats, footsore and
weary. Kot a grumble did I bear. But with
sec jaws we toiled on, intent on capturing
Petersburg before the Army of Northern Vir
ginia got behind the works. It was "march,
march, march. No straggling now. It is far
better to march to-night than to assault earth
works defended by Lee's men to-morrow.
Hurry along! Hurry, hurry, hurry!" And
we marched our best; We passed a group of
soldiers who wore tho distinctive badge of the
Second corps, cooking by the roadside, their
muskets stacked by their fire. We asked how
far it was to the battle line. Only a few hun
dred yards they replied. Then wo asked what
Confederate troops were ahead of us. They
.answered with a scornful laugh, "Petersburg
militia." We asked what Union troops were
engaged, and they replied, "Somo of Butler's
men." With tho dislike all soldiers have for
unknown troops wo said heartily, "D n But
ler's men ! We do not know them. Wo wbh
the Fifth or Sixth corps were hero instead of
fhem." Many soldiers anxiously inquired,
"Will Butler's men fight?" Then somo private,
who was better informed than tho most of us,
told us that Butter's men had been lying at
Bermuda Hundreds, and that there were many
negro troops among them. Tho noses of tho
Second corps men were cocked sharply in tho
air at this information.
THE COLORED TROOPS.
Word had passed among us that tho negro
troops had had famous success that day; that
they had wrested a heavy lino of earthworks
from mo Confederates, and had captured
eighteen guns. Tho soldiers halted for on in
stant. They examined their rifles and shifted
their cartridge boxes to a position where they
could get at them easily, and they drank
deeply from their canteens. Then belts were
tightened, blanket rolb shifted, tho last bits
of hard tack that tho men had been chewing
were swallowed, and their mouths again filled
with water nnd rinsed out, and then through
out tho ranks murmurs arose of "Now for it,'
"Put us into it, Hancock, my boy," "Wo will
end this rebellion to-night," and wo laughed
lowly and our hearts beat high. Soon we
heard commands given to tho infantry, and
they marccd off. My battery moved for
ward, twisted obliquely in and out among
the stumps, and then the guns swung into bat
tery on a cleared space.
And then God, how it angers mo evenj
now after an interval of twenty-two years! q
and then wo went to cooking. That mght
was made to fight on. A bright and almost
full moon shono abovo us. Tho Confedcrato
earthworks wcro in plain view before us
earthworks which wo know were bare of
soldiers. There was a noby fire from tho
Confederate pickets in front of us. So un
nerved nnd frightened wcro they that their
bullets sang high abovo us. Wo cooked and
ate and fooled tho timo away. This when
every intelligent enlisted man in tho Second
corps knew that not many miles away tho
columns of tho army of northern Virginia
were marching furiously to savo Petersburg
nnd Richmond and the Confederacy. Wo
could almost see those veteran troops lean,
squalid, hungry and battlo torn, with set
jaws and anxious looking eyes striding
rapidly through the dust, pouring over
bridges, crowding through tho streets "of
villages, and ever hurrying on to faco us.
And wo knew that onco they got behind tho
earthworks in our front, we could not drivo
them out. They did not surrender cannon
and intrenchments to disorderly gangs of
nrmed negroes. They did not understand
how troops could loso earthworks when
assailed by equal numbers of soldiers. Still
wc cooked and ato and sat idly looking into
ono another's eyes, questionnigly at first, then
impatiently, and then angrily.
WEIIE SOT TO FIGBT.
Gradually tho fact that wc were not to
fight that night impressed itself on us. I
walked over to tho limber of my gun, opened
my knapsack and took out a campaign map
and a pair pf compasses. Returning to tho
fire, the map was spread on tho ground. As
I measured tho distances a group of excited
soldiers gathered around and watched tho
worlc Wo had the less distance to march,
about nine hours tho start, and allowing for
tho timo lost at the crossing of tho James
river wo were, at 11 p. :n., four or fivo hours
ahead cf tho Army of Northern Virginia.
"Will they be in tho works by morning,
men?'' I asked, and all answered: "By God.
they will!" Discouraged, I put away tho
map, loaded a pipe, lighted it and strolled off
down the line, stopping at almost every firo
I came to to talk to tho infantry soldiers.
Tho rage of tho intelligent enlisted men was
devilish. The most blood curdling blasphemy
I ever listened to I heard that night, uttered
by tho men who knew they were to bo sacri
ficed on tho morrow. The whole corps was
angrily excited. I returned to my battery a
little after midnight. Seated on the ground,
I rested my bad: against ono of the ponder
ous wheels of my gun. Resting there I slept.
At early dawn I was awake and tried to
examine the Confederate line. I noticed that
the noby, wasteful picket firing of the night
before had ceased, that tho main line of
earthworks, indbtinctly seen in tho gray
light, was dead silent. Somo of our infantry
camo into our slight earthwork, mid we stood
gazing into tho indistinctness before us. All
of us wcro greatly depressed. It grew lighter
and lighter, and thero before us, fully re
vealed, was a long, high lino of intrench
ments, with heavy redoubts where cannon
wcro massed at the angles, silent, grim. No
wasteful fire shot forth from that line. Now
nnd then a man roso up out of tho Confedcr
ato riflo pits, and a riflo ball flow close abovo
us, no longer singing high in the air. Sadly
wo looked at one another. We knew that tho
men who had fought us in tho Wilderness, at
Spottsylvania. North Anna and Cold Harbor
were in the works sleeping, gaining strength
to repulse our assault, whilo their pickets
watched for them. While we slept they had
marched. Years afterward, while crossing
northern Dakota in tho service of the North
cm Pacific Railroad company, I met Gen.
Hancock, and camped with hb party. That
uight, "bile talking around tho camp firo, I
asked him why he did not take Petersburg
t ho night the Second corps arrived there. In
reply he told mo that ho hail not been ordered
to take tho town, nnd added: "Mr. Grant
said ho txmt mo tho order. I never received
it." No one has ever accused Gen. Hancock
of lying. Finnic Wilkcson in Chicago Times.
