Just like John!" Dr. Moreland was a bald-headed man, with aquiline features, sparkling eyes, and an iron-gray fringe of hair around his temples—and, as the moneyed man of the family, all his relatives looked up to him with the utmost respect, not mi mingled with a little awe; for ho had what is called a temper of Ids own. “ He hopes you’ll like it, uncle," said John Mvlreland's sister, a little timid old maid of two and threo-and-thirty. “Hopes I'll like it!" repeated the irraseihie doctor. " \\ ly don't In* com mit suicide at once, and then send word to me that he hopes I'll he pleased?" " But she's a verv beautiful girl.” ‘•Beautiful?'’ Dr. Moreland elevated his ui|uiliue nose in double-distilled scorn. "Ami of course she'll wnnt India shawls and sets of coral, and silk frocks to deck olf her beauty—and where is John to get them ?" “ And she is a poetess, I'ncle M ire land.'’ “ W orso and worsel” groaned the old man. ‘‘Burnt puddings huttonless shirts—dust in all the corners, and inky fingers—a poetess? Just like John!” “ But you’ll call, uncle, won't you?’’ ‘•Call? What should 1 ea|l for?" sharply demanded Dr. Moreland. " 1 can’t congratulate her on marrying John, for I think she is a fool to do it. I can’t congratulate him, for I think he is a bigger fool still to entangle himself with a simpering doll-hahy of a wife, who writes verses! Bah! I've no pa tience with the folly of this world!” “ Yes, hut uncle —” " My dear,” interposed Dr. Moreland, brusquely, “ I'm particularly engaged this morning, so perhaps you’d belter go down stairs,” " Yes, uncle,” said Ke/iah Moreland, meekly. She was used to her uncle’s rebuffs, and took thorn with a philoso phy which was worthy of a better cause. In spite of this vituperation, howev er, the doctor did call on the bride. lie rang the door hell at hi) Bolhy square at an early hour, as he chanced to he passing. “ I’ll catch her in curl papers,” said he to himself, his lips twirling with a malicious smile. A little* maid in frilled cap and white apron answered the door hell. ■ Keep a girl, eh?” said Dr. Moreland savagely to himself. " Anil on John's salary! A pretty way of economizing, that!” The little maid showed him into a sunny little parlor with an open grate tire on the hearth, and hyacinths in the window, where a very pretty young la dy sat at her needle work. !she arose to greet him—and he was a little disap pointed to see no trace either of curling papers or inky fingers. " I suppose you are John's wife?” said he. The young lady smiled. •• Yes,” said she, *‘ I am John's wife. And 1 conclude that you are John’s un cle. Dr. Moreland.” • What do you keep a servant for ?" demanded the"doctor, plunging abrupt ly in viediwi re*.

John’s feminine spirit was evi dently becoming aroused. “ No, said Dr. Moreland, " you are ; one of the women of the period, You j prefer tv' sit with fv'Klevl haiuls, while I your husbaml tv'ils his life o.u trying tv> | scrape together a little money." " Von are mistaken there, Dr. More- I land," saivl the bride. " 1 may be one |of tin l women of the periovi in fact, 1 ! rather glory in the title —but 1 am also , one of those who firmly believe that | husband and wife should share alike 1 the burdens of life as well as its pleas i ures." I " Humph!" said IV. Moreland; ami j it ever monosyllable expressed a whole dictionary full of obnoxious epithets, it was that “ humph!" "You write poe try, don’t you?" "N es," said Min, John, not without a certain defiance in her tones, " I write i poetry." " he’ me give you a piece of advice," i said Dr. Moreland, with hands in his I pockets and nose in the air. “ Just burn | all your pens and paper, roll up your sleeves and go to work. That’s the only ; way to get ahead in this world." *’ Do you think so?" saivl Mrs. John. " Yes, 1 think so," saivl Dr, Moreland, j "1 am very sorry not to agree with : you," saivl Mrs, John, " hut 1 take a dif ferent view of things." " Oh, very well,” said Dr. Moreland, rising in high dudgeon. " Think as you please. This is a free country -unite free." " Won’t you stay and take lunch with us, Tiide Moreland?" asked the brivie soothingly. “ No, 1 thank you," saivl Dr. More land. “ But there’s vine thing 1 want tv >! impress upon your mind, and perhaps, it would hi* as well for yon to mention I it to John, too." “ What is it, uncle?" "Just this: that it you come to want —when you come to want would per haps he a more correct expression you don't eome to me for aid. I wash un hands v.if you and your poetry." Mrs. John smiled. “ 1 assure you. undo.” said she, “ we uovor hail the least idea of becoming pensioners on your I'uunty." Perhaps you had, perhaps you hail not,’said Doctor Moreland, ealebing up his hat. “1 wish von a vorv jniod ■ morning.” And iic descended the stairway two *a •> p'uc. and shook the dust ol the oll'ending nousenotu .c in.- r < i. Scarcely three months afterwards poor little Ke/.iah came in with a very red nose and swollen eyelids to tell i Uncle Moreland that John was dead. I '• Dead, is he?” said Dr. Moreland. “ I said when he married Unit poetry-writ ing girl that he had committed the last blunder that he could he capable of, but it seems | was mistaken, lie could die and leave her on our hands,” “Oh, Uncle Moreland!” sullied little Ke/.iah between her tears. " Don’t be a fool., - said Uncle More land. “ I liked John as well as you din, but he wore my patience out. And I am sorry that he must needs go and die, and nut us to the expense of a fu neral.” " What is to become of John's wife?" faltered Ke/.iah timidly. “I don't know that that's any of my business,” said he. It was scarcely a month after poor John’s remains were laid in Greenwood cemetery when Dr. Moreland received a black-edged note. “ From John’s wife,"said he, contract ing his brows, “ 1 wonder what she has : got to say to me after all my warnings?” i From John’s wife it was—a neatly j written missive, which ran thus: “ Dkak Unci.k Mokkiand: “Will you i come to me this afternoon at three [o’clock? And oblige your affectionate i niece, Ci.aka Moukland.” •‘Ah!" said Dr. Moreland to himseif. ” I knew very well how it would he; I predicted it all along. .She's going to throw herself on my compassion. Wid ow—penniless—blighted hopes—and all that sort of thing. But it won’t go down” buttoning his pockets with a sig-; nitieant air— *• I warned tier just how it would he, and 1 shall give her to under- ’ stand that as she has made her bed so, she must lie upon it.” Kcziah picked up the note when she was dusting her uncle's library, and looked piteously at it. ‘‘ You'll go, uncle, won't you?” said she. “ < )h, yes,” said Dr. Moreland, " I shall K ( >'” And tic went accordingly, John's wife was sitting by the fireside, dressed in the deepest of black and look ing prettier than ever. Dr. Moreland sal himself down opposite and looked hard at her. '• Well,” said he, " what do you want of me?" “ 1 wanted to ask your advice, uncle,” said the young widow. "About what!” instinctively clapping his hands over the pocket where he, kept his money. ‘‘About the investment of my mon ey,” “ Of—your--money?” Moreland could scarcely credit his ears. Yes. niv rnonev; toe monev I have earned by sending poetical contributions to the various magazines tmi literary contributions of the day. It is not a great deal, hut it is enough to enable me to live comfortably fhi the rest of my life, if I can only manage to get it suitably invested." Dr. Moreland starv'd.
