—John W. Low in New York Commercial Ad- I
Two fertile farms lay side by siHe on
the road between the village of Fridge
town (now Mount Hdlly) and Burlington
in the year 1775.
Eeuben Most and John Grigg were
still wont to consult one another con
cerning the affairs of their resp«ctive
So by tho same process Reuben Most
and John Grigg found themselves when
the necessity arose shouldering Conti
nental muskets togother.
It must not be snpposed,.forsooth, that
Reuben and John 'were childlts-; and
alone simply because no mention has
yet been made of anything to the con
trary. Patty Most was as fair an IS
year-old slip of girl as one would care to
feast his eyes upon.
Reuben and John had uissry years ago,
long before the birth of Patty, confided
to one another the hop? that one should
be given a son, to the other a daughter,
and that the lifelong friendship of the
fathers should find even a stronger tie in
the union of their offspring.
When, shortly after the girl was born,
therefore, John's buxom spouse duly pre
sented him with an heir, the two old
friends renewed their pledges over many
a giant mug of home brewed ale.
At the period when the tale begins
Patty Most was a demure little country
beauty a trifle over 18 years of age, and
John, Jr., was a sturdy youth a month
younger. Up to this time there had been
but small need for the manifestation of
their fathers' desire concerning a mar
riage between them.
On the evening before the departure of
the men young John walked down the
cowpath, jumped the boundary fence be
tween his father's and Reuben's' lands,
and strode up through the meadows to
his sweetheart's home.
The parting with her was John's worst
trial. Even this, however, was softened
by his anticipation of tho glory which
would cover him when the war was over
aud done, and when tbe name of John
Grigg, Jr., should stand high upon its
list of heroes.
"Oh, Joan, don't so to the horrid war!"
exclaimed Tatty impulsively. "I'm just
certain you'll get killed!"
"Pshaw. Patty!"'said John as he put
his arm around her, "don't be a little
coward. Pll come liomo a great mau,
and. then you'll be glad I went."
The samo day Patty ami her mother
accepted au invitation extended by the
girl's aunt,<who lived in the village of
Bridgetown, to tnako their home with
her until the return of Reuben, tio. leav
ing the farm affairs in charge of an old
man, who was too far advanced in years
to bo of service in battle, Mrs. Most and
Patty went to live with Mrs. Milford
in the village until the happy day when
the war should end.
Mrs. Milford's house stood on Main
street, not far above Garden lane, npon
the corner of which two streets stood
the even then old Friends' meeting
where the mistress, who was a
member of the society, was wont to wor
ship on First days.
About four weeks subsequent lo tho
two Johns and Reuben's departure a
company bf British troops en route from
the Atlantic snaco-sst to Boston invaded
Bridgetown for some unknown reason
and proceeded to quarter themselves
upon tlio startled residents.
Those of the troops who violated the
privacy of Mrs. Milford's household
were three young officers. That dame
did well for her involuntary guests, si
ting before them the best to eat and
drink thiH her house afforded.
Major D*rrond chose us the drill ground
the main street of the village, that being
greater in width than any other. Upon
this street stood Mrs. Milford's h0,.,
directly in front of which the British
company would be forced to pass. This
Patty noted with secret satisfaction.
Out marched the British column, pass
ing and repassing with absolutely cor
rect unanimity of motion. Twice, thrice,
it passed the Milford mansion, and now
it was about to do so for the fourth time.
A minute more and the center of the long
line was exactly opposite the house.
Suddenly the shutters of a second story
window flew open, and from out tin.'
window was thru3t tin American flag. A
bonny head appeared just behind it, and
the accents of a shrill, girlish voice rang
"Hurrah for the Americans!"
The company stopped like 6 flash.
"Arrest that woman!" thundered the
A dozen soldiers ran to fulfill the order.
The window was quickly thrown down,
fastening the flagstaff down and holding
it in position, where it continued to gen
tly wave defiance to tho Tory throng
MeanWTiile Patty had hoard the order
for her arrest and ran like the wind
down the rear stops, through the plat of
ground at the rear of tho house and out
into Garden lane. _
Across the way the door of the old
meeting house stood invitingly ajar, the
aged sexton having forgotten to close it
after the day's garnishing. Intoit i';itty
ran, but not quickly enough to I :p»
observation by the soldiers.
Ono of them caught a glimpse of her
flying skirts a*, she entered the door, nnd
gave the alarm. In a mor enttho tnlire
command, forgetful for tin time ol all
discipline, rushed headlong after her.
Just as they had all reached the meet
ing house ••elam!" sounded the solid
door in their faces, and as they gath
ered angrily around, baffled, they could
hear the sound of the heavy iron bar as
it dropped into place on tho inside.
"Crash!" went the bullet through the
pane, scut by some dastardly soldier's
"Stop that!" shouted ono of the junior
officers of the company. "The next man
who shoots at that girl will be placed un
der arrest!"
On the inside Patty crouched in front
of tho center pillar of the building
breathless and a good deal frightened.
The ballet whirred over her head aud
buried itself in the wood about a foot
above her.
In a moment one or two of the men
outside, assisted by their comrades, had
climbed to the window sill and had suc
ceeded in raising the window about six
inches. By degrees they widened the
distance sufficiently to allow a soldier's
body admission to the room. He clam
bered over the sill and dropped down on
the inside.
"Ah, my pretty one," said the soldier
to Patty, who waa now thoroughly
frightened, "so we've got you at last,
have Are!"
Major looked grimly down
from his high seat upon his horse as Pat
ty was led, trembling and timorous, be
fore him.
"Take this girl to my quarters and
keep guard over her."
The colonel's quarters, which had been
made ia a stanch stone mansion in an
other part of the village, were reached
soon, aad Patty was forthwith taken to
a room on tho second iloor and locked
in, while a soldier stood guard without
the door and another in the street just
under tiie one window.
Two hours dragged their slow length
away before Tatty heard anything more
from the soldiers. Then she saw them
.coming toward the house in groups of
twos and threes.
Shortly, too. the major rode up. and
throwing his horse's reins tv tt .servant
dismounted and entered the :'atty
saw one of her three friends—t~,e lieu
tenant—accompanying him.
After perhaps 15 more minutes had
passed the same soldier who had locked
the girl in came and unlocked the door,
beckoning for Patty to come with him.
The soldier took her along the passage
way aud dovrtl to the lower floor before
Major Derrond again. That officer
seemed a trifle less stern, she thought,
than when she was at first taken before
"I have decided," said the major, "to
release you on condition that you do not
repeat the offense to his majesty that
was tiie cause of your being here. Are
you willing to give that assurance?"
Patty hesitated a moment, and finally
deciding that by promising she need in
nowise be untrue to her father's and
lover's cause, gave the required promise.
Upon a night soon after a heavy rain
had begun to fall about dusk and had
continued drearily the night long. Short
ly after 9 o'clock tha little village was
locked in slumber.
Patty had retired soon after 9 and
had fallen immediately asleep. Nothing
disturbed her dreams until just after
midnight, when a shower of gravel rat
tled sharply against her chamber win
The girl was awakened almost instant
ly. and lumped from her bed to investi
gate the cause of the strange proceeding.
"It's me, Patty," came a low voice
from below, which she immediately rec
ognized as that of John, Jr., her lover,
who was supposed to be far away to the
Hastily she threw on her clothes, and
in a moment had unfastened the heavy
kitchen door and had admitted the sol
dier youth, drenched and bedraggled, to
the welcome warmth of the open lire,
which, although the season was summer,
gave out a generous heat to the chilled
and dripping youth.
"Now," said Patty as John removed
his coat and stood before the fire, "tell
me how you came to come home?"
John made no answer for several min
utes. Then he said:
"I suppose that I might as well tell
you, Patty, that I've deserted."
The girl failed to comprehend for a
Mini.ii-nt and sat with wide, wondering
"You don't mean, John," she finally
said Jowly, "thai you've run away from
■• STou yourself that you wouldn't
j blame any man lor being afraid," he said
: feebly.
"Yes," answered Patty, "but I've
changed since then, I'm not a coward
any longer. Tho tables seem to be turned
now," she added significantly, and John
flushed uneasily. And then the girl re
counted the story of her adventure with
the British soldiers.
At this the weeping soldier lad dried
his eyes and sat up a little straighter.
"You must have walked a good way,"
Patty said after a time, a little more
kindly. "Where did yon leave the army?"
"Not very far from here," answered
John. "Onr general heard the British
wore fixing up a headquarters down hero
somewhere and sent a company down to
! see. They're in camp now about seven
miles to tho north. None of the men saw
A moment later and a glorious possi
bility had flashed across the girl's mind.
I She unfolded it rapidly to John, and that
youth, timorous end faint hearted though
| ho was, succeeded in mustering a sn>:tU
degree of enthusiasm concerning it. He
i finally agreed lo do his part, and was
| let out of the house, as he had come, by
; Patty.
Aa the tall clock in tho hall struck 1
j Patty crept back in bed again and lay
I shivering nervously, with sleepfar from
i her eyelids. Her thoughts were with
( John as lie .trod the drenched road ni>• ::
j the mission on which site had sent him.
I Would he prove equal to It. OT wocld
ho bo found wanting as before? She
heard the clock strike 2, then 3.
She waited a long time, listening for
it to strike -1, when again a shower of
gravel rattled against the window panes.
Her heart beat wildly as she hurried to
the wiudow.
The same figure, looking more drenched
if possible, she saw dimly below.
"All right," she whispered, and in an
other minute was talking eagerly with
Johu In the kitchen,
i. He was quite a different youth from
j the one she had admitted but a few
; hours before, and who had confessed to
' such pitiable cowardice.
All trace of tho despondent cringo
with which he had stood, so full of
shame, before Patty had disappeared.
: and he seemed now like a mau who could
be trusted in any crisis.
"Everything is all right," he eaid.
And then he secured from her tha names
of the villagers upon whom tho Tory
soldiers had quartered themselves.
With the British company's protracted
stay iv the village, the girl knew almost
to a man whose tha different houses
were which sheltered part of the king's
After this information was secured
John again disappeared, and Patty, for
the third time that night, sought her
couch, but not to sleep, however.
Meanwhile the Continental company,
which had been brought by John from
their nearby camp, rapidly aad noise
lessly surrounded each dwelling where a
prize was to be secured in the shape of a
British soldier. When the work was
complete, tho trumpeter si oocl in the cen
ter of tiie village and blew a stentorian
For a moment there was no sound in
reply. Then windows were thrown open,
aud at every one appeared one or more
heads, the owners thereof rubbing their
eyes und sleepily trying to discover the
cause of snch unseemly disturbance of
their peaceful slumbers.
The British soldiers, too, stumbled out
of their comfortable bods, surprised and
uncomprehending. When they looked
into the street, however, aud saw at
every door tho Continental bluo and yel
low, they rapidly arrived at a correct
Ere long every red coated soldier in
Bridgetown was in the custody of the
Continentals, who promptly conveyed
them as soon as possible to tho New
England headquarters, where honors
were showered thickly upon the heads
of the entire company.
John went with them aud received his
full share as the supposed author of the
capture. What the commanding officers
always supposed was merely a hare
brained midnight visit to his sweetheart
was pardoned in the light of its unex
pected and happy result.
John served all through the long war
after that with bravery and distinction,
his part in the snaring of the British sol
diers apparently having.cured him of tho
slightest suspicion ot cowardice. Aud
Patty kept her husband'? secret well.

The Power of Little Things.
Daintiness in trifles is very attractive.
A gift that is wrapped in good paper and
tied with a pretty ribbon, for instance,
looks twico as tempting as the same
present carelessly given. Every ono
knows how a table maj- be made refined
or otherwise by the mere setting of the
china, glass ant? cutlery and how the
touch of the mistress' hand will convert
the clumsy disposition of an inexperi
enced servant into an arrangement of
beauty and order. The same room with
the same furniture may iook as widely
different as the desert of Sahara and the
garden of Eden, according to the taste
shown by its occupant.
This power of little things cannot be
overestimated, and it is not only in
tilings inanimate, but in words and deeds,
that this most desirable quality of taste
may be manifested. A kind action may
be made graceful, a generous gift may
be bestowed tr.ctfully, hy force of what
might be dserned a trifle, but which
sometimes is of the greatest importance.
On the other hand, a careless, neglectful
manner will almost rob a kindness of
the pleasure it was intended to bestow
and render it absolutely distasteful to
the recipient.—New York Tribune.
