CHaWften' Journal
Our new house ! What a world ol
loving and joyful anticipation depend
from that little phrase I How well it
Bounded on Harry line's lips when he
Baid it again an again to pretty Molly
Brown ! And she would blush some
times, and puzzle her wise little head
with her prospective housekeeping ar
rangements like any nest-building
bird i i tho spring. It was
not to bo a pretentious cdiliec
as houses go; neither is a bird' nest
large, though there is untold Hut
teriug over it; but it stood on a pleas
ant lawn, such as almost keep them
selves in a country village A few t.dl
trees were abo close by. Molly, as soon
as she had dismissed her school, stopped
every day to look after the roses and
currant bnshos and sage plants, and
many things, both useful and orna
mental, which grew up aa if by magic
in the garden and on every side of her
future home. And it always happened
that Harry, who was tho handsomest
and blithest carpenter in all that region,
contrived to sec tho teacher whethor he
was working on this side of the
house or on that, and sliding down
from roof or staging, or leaping from
veranda or window, was suro to meet
her before sho had passed tho lilac
bushes which stood hard by tho gate
way. " Molly, dear, wheu will that blessed
Bchool of yours bo done?"
"Not these ten weeks," 6aid Molly,
laughing. 'J You know 'tis scarcely bo
gun." "Well, just a fortnight after you
give up that pedagoguo business the
last nail will bo driven in this magnifi
cent dove-cote; then two months foi
preparing, painting and most excellent
drying, and then, Molly dear."
The teacher blushed and smiled, and
none tho less when a quick kiss touched
her round cheek but it was no harm,
for they were already iu tho house.
" Yes, then you'll have those towels
and tablo-cloths in apple-pie order; and
that avalanche of chintz stretched over
the easiest chairs and sofas you evei
rested on."
"What a deal of work it will be,"
said Molly, quito anxiously.
"And what a deal of comfort," re
torted Harry; "and how nico it will
look when it is done ; tho pink and red
flowers for tho parlor, the blue for the
sitting-room, and tho green and white
for the bedrooms, and the kitchen
well, I boliovo wo won't sit down there
at oil."
"And what is this room for?" in
quired Molly, discovering a wing which
had been thrown out, forming an apart
mont that opened from the sitting-room
and upon tho veranda.
"On purpose for yon," said Harry,
"to bo your study, or sewing-room, or
sanctum, or what you will, only I beg
permission to pay you a visit onco in a
while. Just look at this bay window.
What a rare place for you and mo on
inmmor evenings."
Molly put her littlo baud on hei
lover's arm, and said her thanks so
Bwootly that ho was halt' tempted togivo
his house as many wings as a windmill,
just to have tho sccno repeated.
"Now, Molly, dear, you'll havo to
use another piece of chintz for that
window-stat and the arm-chairB. Hut
the china closot; come and see if tho
Bhelvcs suit you!"
At this instant thero was a great rat
tling of loose boards upon tho floor,
nud a very musical voico called " Cousin
Harry " with bewitching impatience.
"Where aro you? What iu the
world ore you doiug here ? 'Tisn't very
hospitable to let visitors break their
necks finding their host. Why, what is
it, Cousin Harry, going to set up boh(
lor'a hall without sending pit word?"
"I guess so, Clara," foid Harry,
laughing, but not quite ut his oase, for
ho stood somewhat in awe of his dashing
cousin. " I intended to send for yon
wheu tho cottage should be finished.
It iB not, as you perceive, n convenient
place for visitors as it ifi."
"Hut it seems you have tln ni, not
withstanding," Baid Clara, os she es
pied his companion, wliom InO grsotod
as an old acquaintance, "(lot ited as
you aro, you cannot build a house with
out calling in a woman to hold a consul
tion with over nooks on 1 corners. You
should have sent for me, who knew all
these things instiuctively. I was born
a carpenter, only, unfortunately, a
woman; but Molly hore, wise teocher as
she is, can't do the least thing with
niches and uncles, partitions and stuir
casos, until they are all demonstrated to
her understanding by being finished
past alteration."
"So much the better," retorted
Harry. "I cau havo it all my own way,
and that I could never got from you."
"And never shall," returned Clara,
glancing at tho little bird of a teacher,
who on her part did not look alto
gether satislied. " Come, Cousin
Harry, aunty says you must be at home
early, sine you have company, so set
your things to rights and go now with
T e girls stood wailing for the young
"How vexatious Harry i ," said
Clara. " Wo have planned hours to
gether, ever since wo were tho merest
children, and now it is downright pro
voking that ho should commence build
ing without so much as acquainting me
witli his intentions. I he. rd he was at
work here, but never supposed it was
for himself until two days ago, and I
have come up just to havo a hand in the
business. Old times give me a pretty
fair right to do bo, any one might
! allow."
Clara paused to survey tho grounds,
with a lofty air of proprietorship, and
patted her foot to tho humming of a
prima donna waltz. Poor Molly could
hardly keep back her tears or maintain
her dignity by an assumed indifference,
1 or still worse, think of something to
j say that should relieve a sib nee which,
to one at bast, was embarrassing, but
finally sho ventured tho fortunate rela
tive arrangement of tho trees, which, as
they wero twenty years t Id, might
safely be approved without a suspicion
of conceit or vanity.
"They are well enough to be sure,"
replied Clara. "lint what an idea to
plant that thicket of roses and what not
besides so near the house a regular
hole for toads and brooding hens to
My nothing of the garden coming so far
in front. Cabbages in sight of the par
lor windows.'"
" No, the flowers will screen them,"
said Molly, trying to laugh.
"Maybe the cabbages, but nothing
-hot ter than sunflowers and hollyhocks
BSD hide the bean poles. Plainly, I
hall give Harry a looiuro on taste, and
have the whole affair Bwopt farther back.
We used to arrango our establishment 8
in a rather more stylish manner."
Molly could not imagine who should
have a better tight.to locate tho garden
than herself, with hor lover's approval,
and sho very naturally indulged a posi
tive mental vindication of tho beauty
of flowering bean vinos, and of
tho convenience and economy of a
large patch of cultivated ground.
However, Clara did not lecture her
cousin as they all went down street to
gether, but told him about the new
music which she had brought up, just
suited to his melodeon, and that ho must
Ond his flute and they must practice
that evening ; and asked him if Farmer
Doano still kept Snow White, that
wonder among saddlo horses, and if tho
sweet flag yet grew down iu tho mexdow,
and if ho knew that sho was a pro
ficient in leather work, and was ready
to frame senio of his handsome en
gravings so ho would help her about tho
painting and varnishing. And thus she
rattled on, with her rjniolt, gentle voice,
and the facinuting play of her gloved
hands, j it - leaving spaces for Harry's
replies, but scarcely an opportunity for
Molly to put in a word edgewise. Of
courso tho poor littlo teacher could not
shino had that been hor forte. Harry
did not go round tho corner to Mr.
brown's gato as was his habit, because
Clara was impatient to got her bonnot
off, and Molly said it was no matter.
"Come over and soo us to-night,"
said Harry.
Mclly made a hositating reply, saying
neither this nor that.
" Not if I will go for you ?" persisted
" 'Tis no way to urgo a lady beyond
her convenience ; wo don't like it, do
we, Molly ?" exclaimed Clara, slipping
her hand into hor cousin's arm. "But
if you will stay at home, then Harry
ond I will call upon yon; but not to.
night, however, for we must hovo tho
music lessons."
Molly leaned on tho gate nud watched
the cousins slowly going along tho ru
ral stroot, as they twico or thrice ap
peared through sonto distant aport tire
iu the foliage, and then, without a look
at her pansies or canaries, went hoavily
to her chamber, and, oblivious of a
score of pleasant little duties, such as
were wont to beguilo hor time until
Harry came iu tho evening, sat down to
hor vory dubious cogitations. Sho had
always found a rival iu Clara whenever
that young lady made her appearance,
which was not infrequently ; and when,
six months before, Horry Lane, tho
very prince and pearl of villago swains,
declared that she, his own Molly, was
dearer to him than all the world boside,
she bail wondered if Cousin Clara was
consciously and specifically included as
o part and parcel of tho depreciated
orb. But Harry had proved the most
devoted of lovers, ond Claro, strangely
enough, had kept herself out of the
Molly was happy in hor complete
atisfoction, and that old tiresomo
jealousy was quite driven away, and sho j
hod almont forgotten that it had ever
existed, until it mado its untimely ap
pearance, rattling and criticising w ithin
the sacred iuclob'ire of tho now house.
And Harry was so easily amused with
it, and fed it with the light of his hand
soilie smiles and gallant expression-,
i and very poorly defended his lictrothed
, from its encroachments. Molly luokod
out ujKin the lovely summer landscape
and evening htaveus with moist cyos,
and with some despairing thoughts
upon the pruetical bcariugs of her cir
cumstances Sho was as pretty as Miss
Clara any day, and could sing and talk
as well, but she was no match with hei
in imjK'rtinonco, nor, a-lack-a dtiy, in
bet wardrobe just then, for sho had
been econoiuizi g against the welding,
and in favor of coming household ag
grandizement, aud who could have
foretold that sho must noeds enter the
I lists again with the showy cousin in
respect of ribbons and flounces?
Clara's new dress did look well, then
was no denying that, aud Molly's last
year's bonnet aud lawn wero most in
disputably flimsy.
If Molly did not think all
this on that evening, sho had
sufficient leisure to do so on the
following days. Clara seemod totally
to ignore her cousin's engagement, and
exhibited a tact in monopolizing his at
tentions which would have been very
entertaining had it not been so cruel.
Sho must of necessity protract hei
morning ride till after nine o'clock, so
that Molly was forced to remain behind;
and sho contrived with marvelous in
vention to find some reason for com
mencing her evening walks a half hour
too early for tho teacher's convenience.
Then if other arts failed, ,she could
easily manage by a piece of ambiguous
politeness, just flavored with a dash of
insolence, to induce Molly to decline
invitations and questionable advaucos.
And Harry all this while? Clara
1 averred aloud and often that Molly, the
; good eoul, didn't mind, and Harry
echoed silently tho comforting declar-
: ation whenever it was necessary to hush
any littlo whisperings that coascience
might insinuate to tho contrary. And
, bew ildered by Clara's increasing play of
wit and fascination, ho had rapidly
drifted away from his old moorings, and
perhaps yielded to his inclinations
. when he allowed himself to be guided
- by her influence. And Molly, with the
customary bad policy of slighted bcau-
! ties, doffed tho witchery of her smiles
and winning speeches, assuming a re
pelling and an almost defiant air, and
thus unwittingly resigned the whole
field to her rival.
As all this happened in a community
of excellent persons, not behind any
other rural district in active, mutual
sympathy and neighborly sentiment,
there was plenty of speculation abroad
respecting it. A trio of individuals
being immediately concerned, there
wero at least three sides to the question,
and old grudges and whims and predi
lections rapidly marshaled tho good
people into their respective parties, aud
the clamor of tongues soon grew " fast
and furious," reaching all oars but those
witli which it had most to do.
Molly was bo certain that her woes
had been unobserved" that she was com
pletely surprised one evening by an
event that gavo a new direction to her
contemplations. Sho had sent away
her scholars and was mournfully leaving
tho schoolhouse, expecting one of those
dreary, solitary evenings at home, when
she came into collision upon tho thresh
old with no loss a personage than Dr.
"I am not a shadow that you should
think to walk through mo in this fash
ion, Miss Brown."
Molly proffered a hasty apology to tho
smiling, substantial gentleman before
hor, who, for a bachelor of forty-live,
possossed a vory portly and comfortablo
" If yon have leisure, Miss Brown," he
continued, "ploaso walk up the street
with mo. I wish to confer with you
concerning a littlo business."
Tho doctor was the school committee.
"There," thought Molly, almost cry
ing, " I supposo that my, school has
been growing wrong with all the rost,
and now I must listen to certain ani
madversions on my stupidity. He
might hovo chosen a more retired place
to read mo a lecture"
But thore was not a particle of ro-
will got the delirium ont of his hea l
Bis heart is all right yet, I'll answer for
Molly drew herself up with an air of
offended dignity, and stammered somo- '
thing about there lieiug no occasion
sho was satisfied, and ncbody elec
"Tut, tut!" said Dr. Stout, "1 have
deliberately undortaken to serve her,
and I shall not be deterred except by
very clear and emphatic reasons. There !
is no sense in letting Harry go on so. !
That wild and unprincipled girl, Clara
livans, is doing her best to draw her net
over him. She is playing a high game
ami may win. Such a thing is possible,
and it will avail neither him nor you
anything if he finds he ha . been mis
taken when it is too late."
Hero tho doctor paused, aul looked
so long and pensively down upon the
grassy path that Molly was convinced
that the popular suspicion which had
attached itself to his previous history,
and which affected to account for his
protracted celibacy, was not wholly un-
authorized. Her heart suddenly opened
to him when sho thought it not unlikely
that he had been tho victim of such arts
S3 were destroying her peace.
"I om older than you ore, Molly," he j
routinued, "and have seen more of i
life, and therefore my advice may claim
your attention. As I said, nothiug else !
than a tit of jealousy will give Harry
Ml wits again. Let him see that there j
is a chaucoof losing you, ond his flash
ing cousin may go homo again very 1
suddenly. I'll wager he hasn't said a j
word to you about the picnic, ond there
isn't o girl who hasn't received her in
vitation three days ago. Miss Clara
will tell him it is sufficient just to let
you have time to put your bonnet ou ,
and that's all the ceremony they'll stand
Molly burst into tears.
"Tut, tnt! I don't love to see littlo
girls cry; so wipe your eyes, and we'll
speedily sot the tide tho other way. I
haven't been with the young people
these many years, but with an excellent
object in view I am happy to depart
from my usual custom, and if you wdl
accept a conceited old beau like myself
I'll take you down to Green Valley on
Saturday with my fleetost horse, and
we'll make quite an impression."
"What Will people say?" inquired
Molly, but half persuaded.
" What we wisb to have them say is
hat you havo given Harry tho go-by,
and that I intend to settle down like
ot cr sensible gentlemeu, and all that
sort of thing. You are a girl of spirit
Molly, and I'll wager if you'll twist j
your curls anew, and put on the pretty j
and into a snug, blown house, where
dwelt DM of her cteemod conquers.
Aunt Silly was as good as her word
Sho did not make th doctor's secret
public, but this unexpected and start
ling revolution in affairs was discussed,
tub rosa, in not less than dozen
places loforo the evening bell.
Upon the morrow Harry Lane's ear
were as-ailed by strange intelligence.
The rumor wan confirmed by innuendc
and jest from every idlo neighbor whe
came along, and, as the forenoon wore
away, began to assume to his compre
hension a very definite and pnrtcnton
aspect. Tho doctor had wealth and
reputation, and was in the prime of life.
Harry drove nails and spikes right and
left. Molly w.ib as good and beautiful
as an angel. Harry plaued a panel till
he could see through it. Such consid
erations and destruction wero unendur
able. Tho young carpenter mado a
neat toilot and was at the school
promptly at four. But his rival'
steed was pawing the earth closo by the
entrance. As soon as Harry could make
his way through the noisy, dispersing
children, ho entered tho schoolroom.
There he found Molly pouring over hoi
desk, aud tho doctor beside her, saying,
heaven knows what, to call up such
smiles ami blushes. If they had seen
Harry coming they could not havo tor
mented him more. For once in his life
Harry felt awkward. His first impulse
was to knock tho doctor to the floor,
the next to snatch Molly away aud run
for it ; but not quite clear about per
forming any rash exploit he stood ir
resolute, hesitating and a littlo foolish.
"How are yon, Lane?" exclaimed
tho doctor, as he helped thoteach.u- put
away hor books and papers. "All
ready for the sport to -morrow, I dare
say? Let mo lay your shawl on, Miss
brown ; wo haven't any time to spend
" Where can they be going ?" thought
Harry, as Molly prepared to leave with
Dr. Stone. Matters looked desperate,
and he made a plunge.
"Molly," said he, "I shall call for
you early to-morrow morning. We
shall want to be on tho ground in good
Molly laughed and shook her wickod
"I am so happy as to havo secured
tho companionship of Miss Brown feu
my own drive to Green Valley," re
marked tho doctor with exceeding com
placency. " But really, I shall not al
low you to jest with njy lady in this
manner. Of course you could not ex
pect to obtain tho belle of tho village
by such a lardy invitation."
Dr. Stone conducted Molly to the
chaise and gently put her in with a pro
tective manner which made Harry clench

which wit hoi was very haudsome, as he
inquired if Miss Brown had boon in
vited to tho picnic, which was to bo held
in o famous grovo six miles distant, on
tho ensuing Saturday. Molly did not
reply at once, for sho was ashamed to
confess that sho had boon neglected ;
and yet Harry had not said a word to
her about it. The tears came into her
eyes, aud sho was much distrossed.
"I do not wisli to trouble you," sird
the doctor, kindly, "and if you will
pardon the very great liberty I aw
about to toke, I think I can rendor you
an important service. I havo observed
that your affairs aro becoming boiuo
what complicated, ond I imagine that
the active interposition of an old friend
would relievo the embarrassment di
rectly. To spook plainly, your Horry

young Jehu.
Harry was loft on tho doorstep to di
gest affairs as ho might, and afterward
to go homo and sing with his Cousin
Clara. He went alono that evening to
see Molly, but sho was still away and
would not return until a late hour, hav
ing gone to tho next town to tako tea
with one of her relatives, who was also
a patient of Dr. Stone. Mrs. Brown
told him it would not be worth his
while to wait. Harry sought his cham
ber in a most melancholy mood and
passed a sleepless night in denouncing
his folly and Cousin Clara, aud in esti
mating the advantages and prohabil i ti
in favor of Dr. Stone.
Saturday come, and tho oak grovo at
Groen Valley rung with sport and merri
ment. Of all tho fair forms that flitted
here and thero over the sunny slopos,
down by the brookside or up among the
flowery hoelges, Molly Brown was tho
most brilliant and joyous. Hor snowy
dress glanced, her ringlets shook off the
light, and her sweet voico mado glad
ness everywhere. Dr. Stone was cvor
at he r side, aud by his genial humor and
inexhaustible fun woke moro laughter
among tho restless groups who attended
him than tho echoes at Groen Valloy
cvor before heard. Clara Evans was
completely eclipsed, andllarry was dim
and doleful. He had scarcely been ablo
to spook to Molly during tho long,
weary day, and to see hor thus was not
at all consoling or inspiriting.
As night drow near, and tho young
people wore about returning, thero was
a new arrival ujon tho ground. A
chronic patient of Dr. Stono's hud
found him out, ond with much amaze
ment solicited a brief consultation. It
so happened that as tho party was
broken up and scattered in various di
rections to prepare for the coming ride,
Molly was left alono. Harry drow near
with troublo in his eye
"What has happened, Molly dear,
that wo should bo hero as wo aro today?"
Molly laughed according to dircc-
OOUTae we shall have peoplo talking
fast enough an 1 Harry at your feet be
fore day after to-morrow night."
Tho picture was bo pleasant that
Mclly laughed involuntarily.
"Now bo a littlo stiff, Mollie," said
tho doctor when they parted; "don't
yield at once, and I'll wager that we
shall not need to givo your Harry an
other lesson. I'll manago it for you."
At the next turn Dr. Stone fell in
with Aunt Goodeuough, an excellent old
lady who came hobbling along in her
big bonnet and spectacles. After pass
ing diffuse compliments and discours
ing with considerable prolixity upon the
weather and tho rheumatism with
cognate ills, Aunt Sally proceoded to
remark :
"Well, doctor, I oxpect if wo was
young wo should be going to the picnic
along with the boys and girls."
Dr. Stono plainly winced.
"Young, do yon Boy? I om sure
I never was moro vigorous than I am at
prcsont. I don't think you ever saw a
gray hair in my head" (Aunt Sally had
been purblind lor years). "Young in
deed 1 There isn't a fresher, gayor
young man in these parts. I think I
havo dono myself injustico in allowing
tho gravo cares of businoss to force mo
into undue sobriety, and I have deter
mined to assumo my proper character,
and shall begin by going to tho picnic
with tho rost."
A smile of intense astonishment broke
over tho bonovolent countenance of
Aunt Sally, and an additional point
painfully stimulated hor curiosity.
Oh, la, now, 1 aiwavs said you
how he supposed she should bo aide to
get home.
We should bo glad to givo the con-
elusion in minute detail, but can only
say that Harry went to see Molly in less
than an hour after Dr. Stone had loft
Mr. brown's residence. What was said, 1
what penitence, forgiveness and tears
healed all wounds and blotted out all
offenses, must Iks left to conjecture. It j
is only known that Harry went to
church next day with Molly on his arm,
and that he Bat beside her during tho
two sen-ices. Aunt Sally Goodeuough
was sorely perplexed, and scarcely took
her eyes off tho unconscious eloctor,
who devoutly listened to tho sermon as
if there had never been a Molly Brown
or a picnic in the universe. Clara
Evans loft the villago during tho week,
so that the beans and r ises had a
chance to grow in peaco.
In tho autumn there was a joyful
wedding, and tho brilliant lights shone
far from Harry's windows to illumine the
pathway of tho many approaching
guests to tho subsequent merry-making.
Dr. Stono camo and found tho bridal
couple in Molly's pretty room.
" Ah, Lano," said ho, " I was very
near getting your bird from you, and
then what would you havo dono with
yonr cage ?"
The handsome Harry tossed back his
heavy curls, and laughing as ho drow
Molly near to him, exclaimed :
"A perpetual truce with you, doctor, 1
concerning that abominable picnic I
You see that I havo my bride safoly
within our owu now home."
