At the Fair.
“Well. Jordan!”
“Well. Charley!"
“Are too not going?’’
1 Goins where?"
"Going to the Fair,” laughing at the chime
of words.
Jordan settled himself comlortably in his
seat asain.
"N'o, Charley, my boy. I'm not going to the
Fair. Bat you are, I perceive. How you are
got up. though I 1 should never dare to travel
in such brilliant company."
“Oh, bothi-r!" and Charley glanced, with
an honest blush on his honest face, at his fine
"I say, though. Jordan,” he quickly resumed,
“yon ought to go.”
“O. hang fairs, Charley. I hate ’em. A
fellow's always bored to death to buy a lot of
rubbish. I d rather by half contribute at the
beginning what 1 can afford. That's my way.
The buying is yours. You'll be a young swell
there, Charley. I can fancy you beset by six
teen ot those girls at once, with sixteen diffeient
propositions for you; and you'll think ii fine
fun. They'll delude you into buying anything;
dolls, pin cushions, and prayer-books. It'll be
all the same to yon ; and you'll bestow them
wiih the grace and disert tion of ayoung prince.
1 really envy that way of yours, Charley.”
“A good deal you do,” returned Charley,
"I do though, really: I’m in earnest. Charley."
Charley Doganne looked in surprise at his
companion at this: but Ellery Jordans face
was serious. There was no sarcastic play of
the lips, no hiughing twinkle to the eyes, of
which honest Charley Duganne was always
somewhat in dread
“Ves, 1 really do envy you. Charley. You
come to the pleasant turns as easily as I do to
the disagreeable ones. You extract the sweet
from life, while I am ehewiing the bitter cud.
Everybody likes you, everybody smiles upon
you : and all from that ‘way' of yours : and it's
the way of your heart. Charley, so I can't learn
it. And all the time you look at me and think
I'm such a smart fellow—that I know the world
and a heap ol things that you don't. Aud you
think I look down from my wise bight some
times and laugh at you when you come in with
your Fair pleasures and in a stunning new suit,
instead of that. Charley, I look at you with
genuine dnura'ion. 1 rejoice in your freshness,
in your capacity for enjoyment of all sweet and
simple pleasure. Don’t think I regard you as
any the less a man for it. It's the generous
boy’s heart, Charley, that's in it all. and that
makes me like the man who owns it. As for
me, Charley, 1 am ‘a great sulking fellow,’
whom nobody cares much about. I never
carry sunshine with me, 1 never win hearts or
smiles. I’m a gloomy, sullen, surly wretch,
who perpetually gets the wrong side of things,
and blunders at every step. There. Charley,
go your ways, go your ways, and don’t mistake
me any more.”
He turned with his old laugh to his book, a
little disconcerted at the earnestness into which
he had been betrayed ; but Charley, touched
and bewildertd out of his senses, stammered
thanks and praises and deprecation in a breath.
But Ellery Jordan had had enough of the topic.
1 Go your ways. Charley, go your ways.” was
all he said to him now ; and at last Charley
was wise enough to go. Jordan heard him
wltis'ling 77 sigrcto per esser fdtee. as he ran
down the stairs
“That is bis natural comment upon my way;"
and Jordan smiled, then looked thoughtful and
a little sad, then lost himself in his book. What
do you think roused hint from tt. this cynic,
this "gloomy, sullen, surly fellow ?” A child's
voice, crying. He had been conscious of it a
good while before he felt called upon to look
into the cause. He knew very well who H was.
His landlady's little boy, Bobby Greet c. Bit
the grieved cot.'iioted -o long he flung
d twit his book and opened the door.
B “'by surprised, held his peace for a moment.
• What's the matter. Bobby?”
The little figure, sitting on the first stair,
disconsolate, burst out afresh at this sign of
interest. Between broken words and sobs hiS
questioner disc v. red that somebody, s 'me
nefarious uncle Dick or other, had failed to
carry out a promise to take B bby to the Fair.
It was a heart breaking thing to Bobby. In
vain. Jordan, moved to pity. to..k the urchin
in'o his room, and laid b tore him treasures
that would at another time have made him
hilarious. The boy bushed his crying, indeed
he seemed to appreciate the efforts made for
bis amusement, but. as Jordan thought, “It
was no go.” Bobby had set his mind upon the
Fair li e Fair, i f which wonderful stories
had fired his youthful imagination. Jordan
looked at the small face, expressing the depth
of childish melancholy.
“So not even this child can be happy, because
of some hungering after what is deuted,” be
nim-ed. "But it is early to learn the universal
lesson, and a pity." He mused a moment
longer, scowling over a new thought. Presently
he gave a sigh that was partly a laugh.
“Bobby, go ard ask your mother to wash off
those tears, and tell her I’ll take you to the
The transformation of the melancholy face
into a bevy of smiles was a very swift one.
Bobby ran off shooting with delight, while
Jordan rose to effect some changes in his toilet.
His face was not quite so full of delightful an
ticipations as Bobby's. He elevated his eye
brows and shrugged his shoulders as be thought
of what be was about to inflict upon himself,
for he hated Fairs, you know.
And this was a Soldiers’ Fair. “How
selfish of him!” yon exclaim. Wait. lie
acknowledged that he preferred contributing
wbat he could afford. And be did. But be
has contributed more than those United States
bills to the country. Long ago be gave bimself.
This is Captain Jordan, ol the Hundred and
somethiig New York Volunteers. He is
home on a furlough, not of simple ease and
relaxation, but of necessity. Waiting Tor that
right arm to get strength enough to wield a
weapon. And leaving him here dressing for
the Fair, let the story of the Fair rnn backward
for a little in part.
“Sophy, you must help us in the post office.

If Sophy Ilamir was firm Id:. ,T ee’yn w.-
hopeful and persis’e; t. Again ar.d again sh.
presented the case in i's m p : '- "> aspects
to Sophy at las’ depwrtt I wit) the ■' -b:

If I tell you wha’ <he cried ah' ut, I am
afraid you vtif 1 thin/my Sophy a very empty
headed voung lady : but have patience with
her, and with her story, and do cot condemn
her at first.
Sophy Hatnlyn cried tk'sevei--d bitter tears
because—because sfae had "nothsrg to wear."
Vou look about the prcttv room, the curtains,
the carpet, the vases. Yea note ail the irdi
cations of a luxurious home, and you -ee Sophy
in her graceful morning attire, and year lip
curls disdainfully, and you comment severely
upon the weak and wicked exaggeration of our
girls. Btt you cannot see the meaning of
everything at a first glance. Ida Jocelyn
would tell you that the Hamlyns we’re not rich.
That Mr. llamlyc failed a few years ago. and
had never been fortunate since. "Not actually
poor, you know.” the gay girl would go on ;
-only the Hamlyns can't give parties, and beep
a carriage, and Sophy don't have so much
money to spend as she used."
This was all Ida Jocelyn knew about it.
And this was all anybody knew about it. but
the Hamlyns themselves. When Ida Jocelyn
went there, and bad such a nice, pleasant ufier
noon with Sophy in that -homelike L use." as
she called it. she did t. >t perceive that Mrs.
Hamlyn looked tired and worn. Sc he did not
know how very, very simply they lived; how
much they pinched aid straitened She Saw
only the pretty rooms j ;sl os i-he had always
seen them, looking fresh and bright—f r the
years of change were t o lew to turn things
shabby yet. And since that time, when Mr.
Hamlyn went down, there had been no outward
difference in their surroundings. Why should
there have been? The bouse i'self was Mrs.
Hamlyn's; and there were no rare pictures, no
statues of great value to sell. Co) they lived
on amidst the same curtains, ond chairs, and
carpets, but with only a single servant in the
whole house. Mrs. Hamlyn had turned, and
pieced, and re made, wiih her own hands and
Sophy's help, dress after dress, until now poor
Sophy's wardrobe furnished nothing further;
and Sophy, sitting there alone in her room
after Ida Jocelyn's departure, cried vexed and
bitter tears over all the vexation and bitterness
of this constant planning and pinching ; over
the want that kept her from accepting a past
which could not but look ai'uring to her.
So you see that although Sophy cried be
cause she had "nothing to wnar," it was not
so much for the one ure-s lacking lor the one
occasion, but for the constant wear and tear
of that poverty which hides its thousand cates,
us humiliating am ynn- es. i>s petty details
behind u smding ma k. It was f r the necessity
that laid ii.i limbs >o narrowly that a new
dress even was itni-o-sible at this time. It
was for a'l this that the bi'ter. vexed !•■.«-
came, though the one dress was the one final
drop in the cup that set it overflowing.
Poor little Sophy! She was but human.
Brave little Sophy, too, us you would sav. it
you knew how she kept repinmgs out of sight,
and almost out of suspicion; who taught h-r
self much handiwork uukn -wn before, and
showed a bright face always to lather, and
mother, and those three boys. But it was hard
about the Fair. Oh, if she could only discover
some way to make her only -i!U dress present
able! It was of no u-c, no u-e.
"Ah me!" and she sighed wearilv, "I am
too proud, I suppose, but I cannot go -.hubby.

She lies there with her tears, thinking,
thinking on the dismal prospect ; while Ida
Jocelyn, never dreaming of such lb;: kit 1 -',
makes her brilliant plans. Ah. Id. Joe iyn,
there are many such homes, where an outward
serenity is kept, and where you never suspect
the many, many cares that hide beneath those
who have known better days, ai d who. not
from vanity, hut from the educated taste, keep

Ida Jocelyn, who came the next night, v.as
radiant at the success of her persistence.
Two nights alter she went into raptures
over Sophy's toilet.
“Where did you get =ncb a lovely dress—so
strange, so piquant, and so becoming? And
that lace at your throat is an heir loom ; and
your hair all crimped and rolled into such
pretty puffs, and the dear little red rose to
cr wn it—oh, Sophy, you look like a little
marchioness I"
Sophy b.- onu J like the red rdse. and laughed
blithely at her success, but -he told no one of
the heartache that preceded it. Sophy never
told any me of her heartaches. First, because
she was too proud to make confidants ol her
girl friends; secondly, because she wa? 100
generous to burden her already burdened
mother. pLe sewed her heartaches into her
work, perhaps Poor little Sophy! brave
little Sophy! were there any of those gloomy
threads stitched into the brill ant gowo you
wear to night, or d;d the rainbow turn them all
to shining promises?
Captain Jordan stood patiently by while
Bobby refreshed himself on cakes and ices.
Standing there twirling his mustaches and
looking forth from under heavy brows at the
scene, he spies Charley Duganne.
"1 declare the fellow is eating a tart like a
school boy !" he said aloud.
Charley glanced up.
“What, Jordan I" And then : "How come
you ?"
And J rdan pointed with a shrug to B. bby.
"1 came to keep the peace; this urchin was
breaking it into fi.nders because somebody had
disappointed him." ,
Charley's admiration saw through this

But there was cert .i: ly a f ate id that night.
When Jordan sat by his fire an hour later, and
- bis bauds his pockets
mood, be came up n the letter again. Vaguely
as bis bard touched it he drew it f nh.
“Captain Jordan ' It was a ti:m band for a

The pretty duchess I 1 should m l cure to look
at her long; her brightness would put my eyes
lie opened the letter and read it through.
Strangely enough, the same handwriting wilt.in
as without.
“One of lur contributions, eh ?’’ He settled
bim-elf lor an airy epistle, made up of an occa
siona t t and French phrases i I ; tnd
a curious k::.d of letter for such a gay looking
duchess. A straight forward lettef, full of
simple strt-r.eth. purporting to come from a
soldiers wife. Where had the gay duchess
learned so much of tue straitened lives ol such
as I best!
He di.covered his eyes moistening at the
reality of the patient endurance; the sad.
waiting hope that was presented; and. most of
all, at the brave sentence: “Hut though 1 am
vary, very lonely : though my heart dies within
me at every rop rt of a fre-h battle, ye! 1 would
rather have you there than here, because 1
know that there is yonr duty, there your honor.”
There were some lender, prayerful words, and
then the lette-r ended. He folded it up and put
it away. Hut he could not put the contents
front his mind, it seemed so real : as i( it
came Irom the depths of some strong, deep,
w manly heart. And that girl with the yellow
hair wrote it I He found himself thinking of it
the next day. He f und himself thinking of it
the next wetk. liy-and by this thought carried
him to sec her. lie went again and agaiu, and
in that home atmosphere, spite of the gay
duchess air. he discovered bow it was that this
cir! with the yellow hair could see so deeply
into life. He saw that she wrote from her own
heart—a heart deep, strong, womanly and
heroic. He wmt again and airaiii ; and if her
biiehin'.. i ut his e;. os out. he gained a clearer
vish ii wherewith to see. He saw no longer a
gay duchess, but S piiy llandyn, a brave little
philosopher—S >j>!.y Hamlyn, the only woman
in the woild to k in.
A fellow .officer, who came home the other
day and off red t-ol.il congratulations to
Captain Joidan on hi. success in winning Miss
HamJyn, said wooden eiy:
“And where did you find her? I did not
ih i.k such a woman lived except in a book
so simp!-- rti d earnest and charming I”
Anri Captain Jordan answered, smilng :
“I lourid her at tHe fair, where lam inclined
to think henceforth are to be found all the
good things ol life.”
