They were Mr. unci Mrs. 'f liwuile, ami hnil been so for a few wo'.'ks only. Tlioy beenino Huff nml Tiff wlien they were married, Although they were well-to-ilociti.ens of errent New Iun'ist,er, they had not been rniirried grandly in chinvh, booiiiiso they were ho voiinr; and if the truth must out, it had been a runaway mali-h, No one ciiiild uudersland why they had run away, ns the opposition to theirmar riatre had been more of a postponinn rliarai'ter than any thin 5; rise: but Mr. Th wait (! had suested that the former Mins Kentherly iiad too little money for his son's iiiteniled wife. There had been a .sti iriny scene, in whieh the two Vcsm-1s, old and young gentlemen, had come into eolli-iion, nuiid claps of thun der. Is it neressary to say more? No: surely all persons of twenty will see why yoini": Thwaite married precipi tately, and Mow with his charming wife iuto hillbillies, "Hull', dear, I'm all ready," said his wife, (jnterine; the room. She was dressed for walking, it being near dinner-time, and she wore her bending sprinsr hat and her clinging buff pawn. Her teeth glinted, her eyes darkened, as she looked down at he.' hul:unt. who had been reading a novel of Victor Hugo. Thwaite glanced up. stretched, sprang to his feel, and bustled about, getting his hal, gloves, cane. Then he clapped his side s ieiitilieally. Vim have your purse?" "Yes." says he. "You have your parasol'.1"' "Yi-s" says she. They went and had their dinner. Thwaile had been silent all the way home from the hotel restaurant. When tliy got back to their pretty parlor, he sank into a chair, and stared before him lixediv. " hat's the matter?" asked Tiff, catching sight of something unaccus tomed about him. '), nothing, Tiff. Don't trouble your-elf about it. Only " his lips re mained open, but 110 words followed.' "1 learcst, have you fallen ill ?" "No ; partly, though. I've fallen into ill luck. I thought I had some money in an inner compartment of my purse, and it is not there !" "You've spent it ?" '1'crtainly not! That is, I suppose 1!;. have." 'And what have you in the outside compartments of your purse?"' asked Tilt, lazily fanning herself and putting hertwo dainty feet 011 the hassock. The only answer Thwaite seemed likelv to make was to begin feeling of all his pockvts. 'Hey:'" said Till". "Whv, none there now," answered Thwaite, shortly, as if of course he hadu' t. "Good Gracious!" said Tiff, snapping her bracelet, "how unusual, isn't it?" "Why, yes, that's what troubles me; I never was out of cash in all my lite before this." "Aren't there such things as cheeks?"' asked Mrs. Thwaite, turning her eyes upon him lovii gly. Thwaite laughed. "I should think so! But then I haven't any about me." "There are so many banks. Where do you cash your cheeks?" "When X have them," said Thwaite, going to the mantel-piece to light a cigar, "I cash 'em at the first bank iconic to." "l'eihaps if you go to a bank they'll give you a check to cash," said she. "No, hardly." "Aren't there such things as accounts at banks?" "Heavens, Till", why not?" "Well, then, goto the bank where you have one." Her husband took his cigar from his lips, growing pale. "What the deuce am I to do? I have no balance." Mrs. 'i hwaito shook out a wave of her dress with a gentle wave of the hand. Her husband was again staring fixedly into the desert of his dilemma, She rose, anil going to him, laid that graceful hand of hers upon his shoulder. "What dillerence can it make?" said she, "about money, I mean. Some thing will happen. Perhaps you have money in your trunk. It is quite funny to think of two people who care about each other as we do. talking so much about such a vulgar thing." That's all very line, Thwaite mur mured: "but what are we to do breakfast?" "ltrcakfast? breakfustf ' "Yes: and we shall break on it, ac cording to present indications." "Pshaw! I'm sure I can do without just for once," Tiff assured him, almost luughing. lie meditated, convinced that he could not get along without it, even for once; and although he had just heavily dined, he la gan to feel symptoms of hunger. The imagination is everything. Thwaile was stunned; but before morning he had realized that, he must lind work. What did work mean him? A fine walk, at worst; gloves, cane, refreshments, diplomacy; a gover nor with the money, a dread of being sent to Kurope. Tiff was as fresh as a rose the zaKt day. She popped her head out of window and sniffed the air. "How perfectly sweet it is thi morn ing!" said she. "I mean to wear gray linen." "Where are you going?" asked Huff. She turned slowly and gazed at him. "O, yes, I do remember now. No break fast!''' "It is too, too cruel, my love," says lie, leaning against anything he could lind, in despair. "Hut I shall go to laee or two of business I know of I to the my a get something profitable to do at once. Upon my word I will soon bo back, fully equipped for a hearty lunch. As you sav, nothing serious can befall two happy young beings like you and me." Oil ho went into the sunshino and Tiff sat down demurely, curious to find out wnat would happen next. She had to wait till evening for that "net thing," unless a series of strange phases of feeling could bo counted as in teresting. It was then that Huff Thwaite but st into tho room, his faco gleaming whitely in the dim light. Tiff! oh, Tiff!" She did not answer, but in a moment slowlv raised herself from tho sofa, her hand to the forehead. "My child, are von famished?" ex claimed tier husband, with glistening eyes. "Only very dizzy," whispered Tiff, faintly, winking rapidly, and panting in the greatest trouble. "Where am I? What have we been doing?" "O, my dear, I have been up and down tho city all day, finally securing a capital connection with father's rival in surance company, but, by the beard of Moses! I have had nothing but aglassof wine and a biscuit since last evening. As soon as I was fairly launched in busi ness this afternoon, I realized that of course I could not expect to receive any cash the first, day, and I became almost wild with anxiety, let it was impera tive to smile. Do vou not know that it is imperative in business to smile?" "I don't care if it is!" retorted Tiff with some show of life. "And yon should care more that I am very, very ill. I have read Hugo until I am as hungrv as a giantess." "lint, Tiff, I have one profound hope in this terrible dilemma, in which it now seems as if we should literally starve unless my hope proves well grounded. Have not you any money?" Mrs. Thwaite threw her head hack daintily, shrugged her shoulders in mockery , her pale lips smiling, her lus trous eves glancing scornfully over her husband's head. "Do not keep me waiting for an an swer." ho cried, kneeling before her. "Why, certainly I have money," an swered she. "How could 1 have pin monev else? Huff, vou are beyond your depth". I think." "Bravo! we are saved!" exclaimed Thwaite, springing up and waltzing a few steps with his cane. Then slop ping, lie asked: "flow eamo you not to mention it at once last evening? Give me your purse without delay, dearest Tiff, and let us start at once for our pretty little table at the restaurant." iitt walked over to t lie encouraging figure in the middle of the room, her hands behind her sloping waist. "Hull Thwaite," she demanded, "do you mean to say you would use my pin money to support us?" " 1 say we're in a deuced fix, and any money would be rather acceptable. Haven't you pins enough? Or are you in a condition to starve another twenty four hours?" HuffTwaitc, I never could have be lieved it." irw" "That you could not take care of me." She began to cry, and spent all tho tears she had longed to shed during the day, but would not shed them because Huff was taking care of her. He was wretchedly hungry. His pulse was awfully high, or low, he did not know whieh; and as for his wife, she might die before morning for want of an oyster patiy. Upon the top of these dire facts lay the purse in her pocket or upper drawer. He was deeply angered. Something whirled round in his heart, and he bit his lips before he knew that he was inclined to. He sat down in bowed position, his thumb? in his pock ets. He heard tho light paltering of spring shower in the gathering darkness, and he also heard his wife feeling about in the next room, turning a key,uud com ing back to where he sulked. She said " Here!" dramatically. Hit looked up, and saw a pretty purse before his nose. The next instant Tilt' Thwaile was look ing at her husband in blank dismay. Hull' had risen wilh a bitter and 'graceful elegance-, and the purse .had skimmed through a pane of tho window with tinkling cra-h. Till' turned to the sofa and threw her self down lit full length, gloriously wretched. Hull' vanished. He went out into the drizzling rain to hunt for the purse. He struck matches that sizzled, and was several times on the point of being run over by vehicles, and there is scarcely any doubt that his misfortunes were further augmented by the use of words after whieh the faithful historian draws an exclamation mark and supplies by a blank. All in moment, however, he thought had stepped on a mouse, ami then knew he had come upon the plush wallet. In the hall he opened it hastily, expect ing to lind perhaps a few gold pieces; but his luck was far better than he had expected. What could Tiff have been thinking of, to forget about it or with hold it. dear little goose! How could her charming ghost have profited by her pin-n.oney, supposing they had both starved? In a couple of hours more Till "s head ache had gone oll'likethe mist, and they both looked even gayer than before the terrible ordeal of that day had set in. Ai nine o'clock there came a knock the dour. The servant stepped over Mis. Thwaite, and said something in low voice. Mrs. Thwaite'replicd in the same manner. Who could have sup posed that there would be a serious sequel to such a slight occurrence? When I servant had withdrawn, says Till': "Please, Hull", hand me live dollars." "Certainly, Tiff. Put, on second thoughts, remember how careful must be for a month." "1 wish you would reflect that laundress must bo paid." "O, we can't spend money in so lavish a way as that at present. Sho must wait." "Well," says tho blooming wife, un concerned one way or the other: "I'll and send her off." She left the room, and did not return for live minutes. Then, after sitting down again, and muling a few pages Mrs. Drowning, she looked up with smile as if at some joke, which was in explicable under the circumstances; had to give lior tho clothes, said sho. "Did you ? I thought vou always did." "1 mean, of course, the laundried ones she had brought." "We.-eu't they just right?" "Huff, you are getting obtuse. She took them in pitynuitt." "Morey!" 1 can make my thirds IttK t about a mouth that way. "But how am I to manage with only twenty-four shirts, and at least seven thrown to tho dogs a week ?" "That does seein a problem," mused Tiff, laying down Mrs. Browning's poems temporarily on her kneo. "Couldn't you buy a thiunol shirt, and wear it ever o long?" "Couldn't you get a bathing-dress?" demanded iluff, with withering sarcasm. a a a a he at to a he we go of a "I "O!" p-n.spnd TilT. "how fearful you alwaya and" Supposn the nnarrol over, nnd for a day or two intenso peace. Then came an episode. ' 'Well, dears, how do you dor ilia speaker was a line girl, joyous with early morning air and unusual excite ment. ' Huff and Tiff were transfixed. Thoy were just starting out for breakfast. "I was determined to lind you in, and so I came at this hour," went on the visitor. , "It has taken us a good while to find you, since papa would hear of it. Tho detective says you drank Steinbergnr Cabinet yesterday " "How dare you enter the samo air we breathe?" thundeied Huff, striding up to his sister and taking her round the waist for a stout kiss. "We ignore yout existence." "What a lovely room!" exclaimed Esther, sitting down with Tiff upon tho sofa, with a swot p of the eyes, and then bending sideways toward the bride's check until cheek and lips met. "You dear!" "You love!" says TilT, and they em brace. "Papa says you mustbu married over again, go through the form and all the show and importance," remarked Esthet with tho most fascinating, lazy noncha lance. "He said he never saw anything go oil' so like cotton into flames as you did, brother; just as though anyone was more in love with your Bessie Keatherly than ho was. He don't remember for bidding the marriage at all." "Please to tell my father," said Hull severely, looking down at his wife, who held her chin in her hand, "that I re member his forbidding il (or as bad as forbidding it) very distinctly. And please add that from this time torth my fat her yes, and all the rest of you, is are dead to me!" "Dreadful words, those. Will," sighed his sister, glancing up with compressed lips. "Don't you think so, Bessie?" .Mrs. Tiff shook her head and smiled. "Mr. Thwaile is never in the wrong," says she, and feels a little awkward at her own assertion. Esther thought a moment, and then said she would not stay any longer just now. Huff said he would see her home and then reflected that he could not very well carry out his intention. Esther upon this explained that sho had come in the carriage. When she had bowed herself through the open door, she stopped to throw over her shoulder a roulade of go nial laughter. "By-the-way, Will," she called, "if we were in tin: fashionable set, what a terrible notoriety you two wild things would have! As it is, it's like a nice play. Adieu!" "I wish my mother would come now," said Till', after the door had closed 011 her husband's buoyant sister who was also a school friend and after a pause, or something equivalent to one. Hull had not descended to the carriage with Miss Thwaite. for fear of catching sight of the world-dreaded grill on the foot man's visage. "Your mother is a woman, dear," answered Thwaite, as if that meant something unusual, "and it will take a long time for her to come round as my father has done." "But you are as unrelenting as you can be," .suggested Till'. In the evening they were sitting, as was customary, in tho cheerful blue tinted room, ilulV feeling very cozy and aloof from the world and annoying rela tives, and remembering his day's occu pation in the rival insurance oilleo as if il were a dream. The door opened hastily, and a figure present;d itself which dashed their united calm to atoms. It was Esther, pale and trembling, her ashen face emphasized by a black veil around it, and over her colored dress a heavy black shawl. Thwaite hurried to her and took her ungloved hand in his. "Mr sister! what has happened to vou?" "Eel me sit down or I shall faint," whispered Esther, dropping her head against his arm. Thwaite led her to an easy chair and helped her down upon its soft cushions. Till' was alert in opening the window, and then running to Esther's side, finding her, however, a little less faint, her eyes looking rapidly from one to the other, as tho two sym pathetic young people bent toward her. "Dear'sister," sobbed Tiff, "has some thing terrible happened':'" My father," said the white-faced o-irl, in low tones, shutting her eyes. c " Father! father!" cried Thwaite, deeply agitated, and clutching his sis ter's hands in a firmer grasp. "What news of him?" " Dead!" The young couple sank on either side of Esther, crushed and horrilicrl. With out opening her eyes, Esther spoke on: " When I told him how you received his loving messages, brother Will, in one moment " Thwaito's distress was agonizing. Esther stopped speaking, opened het eyes and leaned forward eagerly. " Was it right to be so harsh and un yielding to your own father, Will?" Her 'brother had withdrawn to the other side of the room, his face buried in his arms against the wall. " O. Esther, have we no hope?" Tift sobbed. " Why, yes, there is hope in this ease," Miss Thwaite said, in a different tone. Will Thwaile turned, his faced covered with tears. " You said it, brother, and you can undo it. Dead to yon!"' Esther had played a dangerous game, but she was a determined girl, and felt equal to tho emergency. Her strong presence and sound good cheer buoyed up the two victims of her scheme, and enabled Thwaite to recover from the shock he had undergone. She drew a letter from her pocket which had been written by Will's elder brother in Chicago to his father upon hearing of the runaway match. Ho praised Will up to tho skies, and de clared that any girl he chose must be a priceless jewel, whether she possessed any or not, and he begged his father to do'the handsome thing by them both. "And so," concluded Esther, "papa wants to give you both a magiiiheeut reception." Sho had thrown aside her black drap ery, and dusted the powder from her cheeks with a flourish of her scented handkerchief, and now ran to tho parlor door, and called: "John!" in a business like way. lis another instant a walking hill of flowers emerged from the shad ows of the entry, and John, in dark green doth and' silver buttons, set two huge baskets of flowers upon tho carpet. "Papa sent them to you, Bessie, with his love," says Esther. "And I shall soaii be here again, shall I not!" "O do!" answered Tiff, hiding her face on Hull's shoulder with a twining of arms. "Give our lore to the governor," roared Huff, flushed, grinning, jubi lant. Esther laughed merrily, caught up her black drapery, and ran down-stairs, fol lowed by John, with a contortion about hi lips. Hose H. Lathrop, in Harper' Weekly THE EASTERN DELUGE.
