has gone and got married! D've
Good Mrs. Clements pushed her
steel-bowed spectacles off her bright
eyes and dropped her letter in her lap,
as she turned round to her husband,
the stout, clever old farmer, who was
contentedly stroking the old white cat.
" Deacon, d'ye hear?"
This time when she asked the ques
tion there was a touch of sharpness in
" Yes ; what if he is married ? Tin
sure it's natural enough. It kind o'
runs iu tlmfuinily. 'jiuur. to mu-'
I5ut Mrs. Clements would take no
notice of the little pleasant rv.
" Well, if you like it, I can tell you I )
don't, lie needn't think he is coming
hero with his fine, citv-bred lady, all
airs, and graces, and flounces, and
lluted rulllcs. There's plenty of good
girl- hereabout that wanted him.
Uiglit in the middle of work, loo! to
talk of bringing a ladv here in hog-
l killing time ! 1 do declare, I think
iicorge is ti looi!"
A graceful, daintv lit Ho ladv. in a
garnet poplin and ruflled apron, with
small, nroudlv noised heat, covered
with short, dnskv curls, aim a VnilT ot
dark blue eyes, so wistfully and ten
der, a tiny rosebud of a mouth and a
dimple in one pink cheek.
That was Mr.. Marion Clements.
Wa it any wonder that George had
fallen in love with her?
She sat in the bright little parlor,
close beside the lace-curtained win
dow, watching for the loved husband's
return : aud then, when she heard the
click of the latch-key in the hall, Hew
for the welcome kiss.
"Haven't you the letter this time,
George? I've felt sure of it all day.
Indeed, I've tiiit decided what dress
es to take with me."
He smiled and shook his head.
A cloud pascd over her prettv face.
"O George, isn't it too bad?" And
I do believe oh, I do believe they
won't write because they are sorry
you married mc!"
He put his arm around her neck.
" And supposing such to be the cae,
do you think it would make any differ
ence to me .''
"Oh. no! only it would grieve mc
so if I had alienated your own parents
"And a one-sided alienation it would
bo too. They have never seen you.
And when they know you they can't
help loving you."
The exclamation was caused by a
kiss accompanying his loving flattery.
" That's true as preaching. Ily-thc-by,
my dear, what would you say if
the linn sent me ofl'on a traveling tour
of six weeks?"
A little dismayed cry answered him.
" You won't "stay here alone, eh ?
Iut Marion, it would be five hundred
dollars clear gain to us.''
What need we care
I'd rather have vou."
A mischievous smile played on the j
young man's lips; iiewa- more matter-of-fact
than this romantic, tender little
wife of his.
" I think the addition to our balance
at the bank would be very consoling
for the absence, llut never mind, lit
tle pet. Let's go down to dinner. I
hope we will get a letter from home
And soon it was. for Marion snatch
ed one from his pocket the next night.
But her husband's face looked very
grave ami stern, and his eyes looked
angry wheu she looked gleefully over
"My dear, you must remember I care
very little for what the lettercontain.
Ueiiicmber did not write it ; that you
are dearer to ine than ever before.
Kiss me first, while I watch you."
A little pang of misdoubt troubled
her when she glanced over the note;
then tears stole from under her lashes,
and George saw- her tender mouth
ouiver and tremble: then when she had
nm-licd it she laid' her head down on
his shoulder and cried.
"It was cruel to let you see it
wounded birdie. Let me burn it.

Marion was eating her egg while
she spoke across the cosy little tete-a-tete
"Spoken like my true little Marion,
and when I come back I'll bring you a
present. What shall it be?''
" Your mother and father from the
farm. It .-hail be that hope that will
bear me company when you arc gone"."
A fortnight after that Marion Clem
ents ate her breakfast alone, the traces
of a tear or so upon her cheek ; then
she dashed them away with a merry,
joyous little laugh.
"1 Ins will never do. and now that
George has gone for six weeks to pre-
pare for his return,
en it shall be such
And I urav heav-
i coiiini" as shall

" I'm sure I don't know what to say.

will try me lor a week, 1 am sure you

Mrs. Clements looked out of the
window at the great clouds that were
piling gloomily up; aud then the wind
gave a great wailing shriek around the
corner of the house.
You can cook, ken you ? or -hake
up feather beds good big ones, forty
A gleeful little laugh came upon
" Indeed I can. I may not cook to
suit you, but I can leani." j
Mrs. Clements walked out to the huge j
open fire-place in the kitchen where i
the deacon was shelling corn.
" What d've say deacon ; keep her or (
not? I kind o' like her looks,-and the
dear knows it'ud be a good lift while :
we're killin', if she couldn't do more'n

these three days, and it's on us now,
sure enough. Sec them ere Hakes fine
and thick. You may as well take your
things up to the west garret, and then
come down and help ine get supper."
Then followed directions to the west
garret, and when she was gone Mrs.
Clements turned to the deacon: "I
never saw a girl before I'd trust up
stairs alone. But such as her don't
steal : I can tell you that, if nothing
Directlv she came down iu a purple

I after the meal, she gathered the dishes
in a neat silent way. that was perfect
bliss to Mrs. Clement's ears.
"She's determined to earn her bread,
anyhow; and I like her turn too."
And the deacon bad "taken a shine"
to Mary Smith. One by one the days
wore on ; the hog killing wa over and
done: long strings of sausages hung iu
fau'astic rings, arranged bv Marv's

ents were sitting in the Minny dining

"I don't know what 1 -I'n ?'K

A blush of pleasure overspread
" I am so glad you have been suited
with my work. Indeed I have tried."
"It ain't the work altogether, though
goodness knows, vou're the smartest
nil I've seen this manv a dav. As I
say, it ain't the work, it's yon, Mary.
I've got to thinking aheap of you mc

Mary's hand trembled at the kind

sewed rapidlv on.
' It's so uncommon lonesome since

She -ighed wearily, then glanced out
of the window, looked a moment, and
then threw down her work.
" Bless my soul, if there ain't our son
George coming up the lane! Deacon!

And all her mother love rushing to
her heart, she hurried out to meet him.

facilities and hotel accommodations,
her wholesale stores, and her location,
she would still be the great central
point, where shippers and drovers
would meet and business be transacted.
On the other hand, if the railroad re
mains where it is, making Wichita its
terminus, it will lose the cattle trade
uot only the coining season, but for
'good and all," for, if" a trail west i
opened, it will be turned at some point
in the territory, and to look ahead
to the time when this road will reach
that point, is to look too far ahead to
give an opinion, in days as changeable
20 lioW. We cannot see what benefit
Wichita would derive by remaining
for one or two years the terminus of
this road. She is now too firmly es
tablished as the principal city of the
Southwest to be influenced detrimen
tally by the road leaving her, and she
has too good a country .surrounding
her, and its fame as such is now too
far spread for emigration to look be
yond her immediate neighborhood,
whether it compels people to make a
stoppage there or not. We argue,
then, that both the road and Wichita
would he benefitted by the former be
ing built on. Let it be built to ibis
river between now and next June and
on to the line of the Indian territory
the year after, and it will secure the
trade. Drovers all know and all say
that this route, on account of the fine
grazing anil well watcreu country, i
far superior to any other which can be
made east or west, and all the drovers
with whom we have spoken upon this
subject agree in saying that if the
road were built to this point, so as to
be prepared to have cattle shipped
over it when the coming season opens,
that cattle would lie driven lhi route.
If cattle men could only be assured
now that the road would be built fur
ther on, and accordingly that they
could drive their stock on thi trail
without any fear of encroaching upon
settlers, what an amount of trouble
and expense it may save next year, for
only would tho-e now here, who may
drive again, know it, but they would
tell their acquaintances
making inquiries of thern. on their re-
turn to Texas, and instead of, as this
year, when ail arover.' excepi a iew
knowing one were bothered almopt
to death to know which way to drive,
from the many conflicting reports
spread by agents of different town
and roads, thev could hold their own
