But She Was the Gom of the

The two words, “only Maggie," were
s sort of by-vrord in the Clements fam

the baptismal appellation of Margaret
waa considered somewhat inferior In
all respects to the three elder slaters.

Howard, the only brother, and the
eldest of the family, was a physician
nd the head of the household, the
father snd mother being dead. There
was wealth enough to make a pleasant
home when the separate incomes were
combined, and Howard would have
been most unwilling to see his sisters
leave him for any but a homo and hus
band of their own.
“We can all live comfortably to
gether." he would say, “but you have
not enough to live upon without work
if you leave the house we own among
At first tho two older girls were quite
anxious to figure as a great artist and
musician, but finally they allowed their
brother to have his own way.
The youug doctor was very proud of
his sisters and their various attractions,
and when his warm friend and fellow
student, Paul Goddard, appeared to
make him a short visit, he lead him from
the office into tho house adjoining it,
delighted at the prospect of showing
off the girls to a city gentleman.
A tour of inspection in the drawing
room prereded the actual introduction.

tains was painted by my eldest sister.

“Very fine," murmured Paul, trying
his best to admire the mountains.

He added no more, and truly the
face was sufficiently beautiful to need
no comment. Paul spoke cordially:
"What a beautiful face! Who Is this
opposite your sister. Howard?"
'That is Maggie. She is my young
est sister."
“And does she paint or sing?"
"Oh, no. Maggie has no talent and
no beauty. She is a good little thing.
But come to your room. . Dinner will

Miss Maggie certainly has something
of her sister’s artistic eye. How ex
quisitely those flowers are arranged
and how cool and fresh It is here, after
a hot, dusty ride."
Seeking the drawing-room again, Paul
found tho artistic sister contemplating
the scene from the back windows with
eapt enthusiasm.
Mr. Goddard,” she said, advancing
to meet him.
Paul made the necessary speech of
gratification, wondering if it was the
brown of the Cat-skill mountains that
waa daubed so extensively upon tho
wlrtof Miss Nora’s blue dress,and if it
was artistic meditation that had made
cr pin her collar crooked, and forget

deserved the most pity. He had ad
mired Cordelia in eeery variety of cos

seen her eyes raised, and the Ion?
lashes of the drooping lids; and mar

the profusion of her curling hair; had
considered her a beauty, a weariness,
and a burden of spirit
But he could find but little time to
speak to Maggie. He saw the evidences
industry and taste in every de
tall of housekeeping; knew whose skill
directed the servants, whose fingers
filled the flower vases, whoso eyes
were everywhere. But the very per
fectlon of all these arrangements kept
the little woman too busy for many
idle moments, and in the evenings the
older sisters were ail-engrossing.
Two months had passed and instead
of June roses early fall fruits and flow
ers were abundant at Mossvale when
I’aul Goddard passed again through
the village and called at Dr. Clements'
"I am so sorry," said Howard, as he
cordially shook his friend by the hand.
"All the girls are away. Uncle James
invited them to pass a month at the
White mountains, and they deserted
"Then you are alone?”
"Oh, not entirely. Maggie stays to
keep house for me,"
"Oh, Miss Maggie is here. Shall I in
trude if I stay a day or two, Howard?"
"Intrude, Paul! Par from it. 1 am
not busy, and Maggie was telling me
to-day that time actually hangs heavy
upon her hands. Von know she wes
always running for the others. So now
the little damsel has time to enjoy her
self, and we have had some lovely rides
and drives. Maggie does ride beauti
fully and her horse is very fond of her."
It was true that Maggie was finding
many leisure hours while her sisters
were away, and Paul found that the re
tiring, modest girl was one of the pleas
antest companions it had ever been his
good fortune to meet
t 1 1 was an amusement the young physi
cian enjoyed to draw out the accom
plishments that had been overshadowed
by her sisters’ loudly proclaimed talents
and attractions. He found that Mag
gie could sing, with a sweet bird-like
voice, though she never attempted the
difficult songs In which Georgina was
supposed to excel. She could play sim
ple pieces with feeling and expression,
and her fingfrs would fairly dance over
the keys in livelier music, that required
no wonderful talent or elaborate exe
And it was wonderful how pretty the
child-like face became in Paul God
dard's eyes. There was a charm in the
constant cheerfulness that kept the
rosy month ever smiling and sweet;
there was a beauty of expression in
the brown eyes that mere form and
color can never give; there was an at
traction always in the exquisite neat
ness of dress that was never stiff and
prim, though so carefully arranged.
Howard Clements, who loved his
friend, and had hoped to secure him as
a brother during his former visit,
opened his eyes wide in amazement
as the days wore away and Paul lin
gered in Mossynle. During his first
visit Howard had hoped to sec him
yield to the fascinations of the elder
Misses Clements, and no maneuvering
mother ever took more pains than this
brother to display the talents and beau
ties of his sisters. That anyone would
look twice at Maggie when in the com
pany of the others had never occurred
to Howard.
But in the light of Paul’s evident ad
miration the brother began to contem
plate with different emotions the pos
sibility of losing his little sister. He
had borne with perfect composure the
prospect of parting with the others. It
seemed no great hardship, oven when
the separation involved the disappear
ance of Nora's masterpieces and
Georgina's music rack. But to lose
Maggie was quite another matter.
“Who,” Howard asked himself, in
dismay—"who would superintend the
servants and keep the house in order?
Who would wait with cheerful smiles
upon him when the duties of his pro
fession obliged him to ask for meals at
all sorts of irregular hours?"
Visions of Nora in paint-bedaubed
dresses, Georgina with frowsy hair
and Cordelia in inert beauty presiding
over the household filled Howard's
brain; and, while ho lamented, he ad
mitted that "Paul's head was level" in
his apparent choice.
Maggie could scarcely believe she
heard aright when Paul Goddard
pleaded for the gift of her love ami
promised all loyalty and devotion if she
would come to preside over his home.
"But,” she said, "you cannot really
love me."
"I really can and do,” was the reply.
"But I'm so piain and so stupid.
Howard said—” She paused and
"Well, what did Howard say?"
"Never mind.”
"Tell me. That's a darling."
‘‘He said, then, that f was sure to be
an old maid, and after the others were
all married 1 was to stay here and help
him keep up a bachelor’s hall. I really
don’t see," she added, earnestly, “how
Howard will get along."
“He must do as I do.”
"Seek a darling little housekeeper
for a wife.”
So, to the amazement of all con
cerned, the' first Miss Clements who
was married was not the artist, not the
musician, not the beauty, but only

No Matrimony for Them.
It is a remarkable fact that the
greater number of most distinguished
painters have lived and died free from
the thralldom of Hymen. Take, for
example, the presidents of the Boyal
academy. Sir Joshua Reynolds was a
bachelor; Benjamin West, his suc
cessor, was a bachelor; so was Sir
Thomas Lawrence; so, too, Sir Edwin
Landseer, for he, be itremembered, was
elected president, and his refusal did
not take effect until thirteen days af
terward; so, also, Sir Francis Grant,
and. as everybody knows. Sir Fred
erick Leighton. Maclise. too, who
was offered the presidency and a
knighthood and refused both, was no
more amenable to the idea of mar
riage. Then‘Turner, Etty, Sir David
Wilkie. Sir William Boxall, Sir W. Gor
don and Sir W. C. Ross, all of them re
garded matrimony with the same aver
sion as Reynolds, who. when he heard
of Flaxman’s engagement, exclaimed:
"Then he's ruined for an artist. '
