THE MAJOR'S OHOST.
It was the twelfth annual dinner of the cluh. and the Colonel, the Major, the Captain and myself, were seated around the table, with the wine and fruits before us. We were the remain der of the club, which originally con tained all the officers belonging to our regiment that had come out of the war alive. At our first gathering there were fifteen of us, but the hardships and wounds of those four bitter years j had taken the others away. Every year there had been one plate less, until the present, and we had begun to look upon our final dissolution as a j thing inevitably fixed by fate. But the ; four who had met the previous year ] were together again, and we gladly • drained a glass to the discomfiture j of the broken spell. It had not been our fate to have the j fame of victory w ithout toil, for our9 j had been a fighting regiment, and we < were proud of it. Daugers met and shared together made the bonds of our friendship strong indeed, and these yearly meetings were rich in the stories of old times—stories told of the daring or kindness of some one who had passed to the everlasting peace of ieath. None of us were old men. The J colonel had just reached 40; the major j was 35, and the captain was three years his senior, while I was three j years his junior. We were all marred except the major, and it was a source of great wonder to us that he was not so, for the major was just the man who could have made a good woman's life joyous and bright. Handsome, brave, generous, talented, a delightful talker, an author of^ no common merit, and possessed of a'for tune ampie euougn xo niaae xne worm s comforts and many of its luxuries ac cessible, the major was sought for in society, and was ever ready to respond to the call. But while attentive to all the women with whom he was thrown in contact, the major was noted for the impartiality with which he be- i stowed these attentions. We knew' that! he could easily carry off a desirable prize, but he never made the attempt. As our long knowledge of his char acter had shown up his chivalrous de votion to women, and a9 we knew that during our acquaintance he had never had preference for any speclul one, we were puzzled to know why this was so. We had made him the point of subtle attacks regarding the matter, but the major was a good strategist, and he turned the fiauk of every forward i movement we essayed in this direc- j tion. diverting our talk into other> channels, until at last we had dropped i the matter as one that might touch ; on a sorrow’ of which we knew noth ing. The talk had been lively all through the evening, centering about reminiscenxes of jovial times during a raid we had made, which had been ixrolifie of amusing adventure. The major had shown at his best, and we had listened to his humorous narrative with keen delight. So the dinuer had passed, and the dessert was before us. the servants had been dis missed. and cigars were lit. Then one of those unaccountable silences that sometimes come to such assemblages fell upon us, and we puffed away at our cigars, and said nothing, until the etillness griw strangely weird and. powerful. Suddenly the major stopped smok- ' lng. and. looking at each of us in turn, said: “You have often wondered whv Tam not married, and now I will tell you. “It is not a long story, but u • be of interest to you, and. as we are I all that is left. 1 have thought that the •ecret should be shared between us. “When the war came. I had hut just graduated from college, and. as you know, enlisted as a private. U was no easy matter for rae to do this, but I ; felt it to be my duty. I was young, j strong, and able to fight. T had means j to make the life of a soldier as com fortable as it could be made, and while ! my mind longed for literary and peace ful scenes. I still felt that I owed my country a duty. It was but a short time after I enlisted when we were ordered South. The regiment, as you know, had hard work and plenty of it. but my part was as well rewarded as T could wish, for 1 was soon advanced lo the command of my company. “You remember the time when we went south of the Rappahannock, and were quartered in that queer little vil lage. where, even though we were foes, the people treated us so kindly You must also remember the large house back of the village, the one that crowned the hill on whose sides were so many orchards? Well. I had been but a day in the village when l found out that it was the native place of Harry Wynne, my college chum, and also the house on the hill was his home. “For a few days T refrained from calling, thinking that my uniform might be distasteful to Harry's mother and sisters, for he had gone with his State and was an officer in Ijoe’s army.

The laugh that had been a moment before rippling from her lips, ceased, and she started back with a slight gesture of alarm, but ray doffed cap and peaceful attitude reassured her, and she stood waiting. “Is Mrs. Wynne in?” I asked. “ ‘My mother is at home; who shall I say desires to see her?’ “ ‘Charles Talbot, a class-mate of her son. and at present with the regiment quartered in the village.' “ ‘What, are you the Charley Talbot who was Harry’s chum at college?’ “ ‘I am.’ “ ‘Then come in, for we all seem to know you. and though on opposite sides, are friends,’ and she held out her hand. “I took it. and its warm clasp thrill ed me strangely, as did the clear glance of the bright eyes that were upturned to mine. ‘“I am Mabel Wynne. Harry’s sis ter,’ she went on. 'We have heard so much from Harry concerning you, and often louged to meet you. Harry said that he knew you would be in the Northern army, but for us. in your case, there is no war. Please be seat ed. and I will call mother.’ “We had passed into a large, cool drawing-room while she had been speaking, and she had thrown open a window that gave me a fine view of a IcvpI sweep of country, in which the Rappahannock rolled between green orchards, and fields rich with the gold of ripened wheat. Here she left me. and soon returned with a middle-aged lady, whose beauty w’as of that quiet, motherly kind, so rich in the power that makes one comfortable and at ease. I found that, despite my an tagonistic uniform. I was held a frigid; and glad was I to know this, for the first glance of Mabel Wynne's eyes had broken down the barriers that I bail raised against love—barriers of which 1 have made many_ boasts J:o would, my future life would gamer its joy from her kindness, or have no joy at all. I was invited to remain to supper, and did so; and, when duty forced me to take my leave, was asked to make my calls as frequent as my time and inclination would permit. “You can easily surmise that both time and inclination made the inter vals between my visits very' short, and I soon noticed that the door was always opened by Mabel, often ere I had reached the steps leading to the verandah. Who could mistake the motive of such a mark of favor? And you can know that to my soul this brought a glory that was brighter than sunshine, and whose music was sweeter than the spring chorus of birds. . .. . . “I have not told you of Mabel Wynne’s beauty. It was of that clear. fresh. Saxon type, such as denotes a bright and sunny disposition. And she wa* as merry and kind as one could wish, possessing a finely cultivated mind, a sparkling wit, and that sweet, ringing voice that made it a delight to sit and listen to her talk. As you know we were only quartered two months in that village; but before our regiment marched southward I had asked Mabel Wynne to be my wife and hml heard her low voice tell of love that I knew would bless me through all the years. Her mother cave a willing consent, and the tune fixed for our union was the close of the war. .. , , • Th-n came our marching orders, and the raid In which I won my major s com mission. During the year that followed, and the campaign of which Gettysburg w is the conclusion. I heard frequently from Mabel, for the communication be tween her home and our lines was kept oocn. The last tremendous struggle out ward with Grant quickly followed mis. and. as you know, we were on patrol duty and reconnolterng all the time; and when the tlank movement began, kep* well on the outskirts of the army, and made the last raid down the peninsula, which brought the crisis of iny life. "l>o you rc-memher the day we were ex pecting to m<- t Fitz-Hugh s men. I was on picket duty that evening, and had a battalion of our regiment deployed along a read that ran through some broken country. Just after the night began to deepen, and the shadows lay heavy be tween the trees that flanked the road, the rapid gallop of a horse sounded up from a narrow valley; and. telltr.g the men near to be ready. 1 rode down the sloping grourd to meet the person approaching, goon I came to a place that gave me com mand of a long stretch of road, and halt ed ju-t in the shadow. In another moment a horseman dashed into view, and came rapidly toward me. As soon as my voice could be heard. I commanded a halt, but the order was unheeded. •• -Halt, or 1 tire!’ I cried, and still the horse came dashing on; and the next in stant my pistol was leveled, and the sharp report rang out on the still night. With a low cry the horseman tumbled from the saddle; and the flutter of a white robe made me spring to the ground and run to where the prostrate form was ly ing. "The person I had mistaken for a foe was a woman: and. as 1 bent over the white face. I felt my heart grow cold, for it was the face of Mabel Wynne. "I took her In my arms, and her eyes looked up in mine, so full of love that I sobbed like a child. " ‘Oh. my darling, my darling.’ I cried, what brought you here?' •• 'I heard you were with the troops, Charlie, and I wished to see you.’ •• ’And I have killed you, and blighted my life.’ I answered. “ ‘No, not blighted it. Charlie, you did not mean to harm me, and it was my fault.’ “Even with the chill of death making : her blood grow cold, her love would ^jiot I let me bear blame. I saw she was rapTuly growing weaker, and. saying I wourfi get a surgeon, was turning away when she stopped me. " ‘No, it will be useless.’ she said. 'I am visiting at a house only a short dis tance away; take me there.’ “Binding up the wound as well as I could. I obeyed her. And In that house, clasped in my arms, her head on my heart, she died, and there I left her lying ! asleep. “I wrote an account of the affair and sent it to her mother, and one to Harry’. , They both answered, telling me they held me free from blame. But more comfort ing than this, more comforting than aught but her living form here, is the knowledge T have that her spirit is with me; that her love is still my own, and will forever be so. I have seen her face; I have heard her voice; I have felt the pressure of her lips; and soon we will be together, and the love that was sepa rated for a time on earth will he Joined , in heaven for ail eternity. I can see her now. H3 beautiful and kind as in the old years. Yes, I can see her; and is mine.” The major ceased talking. A glad light grew brilliant in his eyes and sufTused his face. Then he covered this with his hands. We did not say anything for a time; hut at last the silence grew oppres sive. "Let us take some wine.” said the col- j onel. And all but the major filled their | glasses. “Win you not join us, major?” asked the colonel. He did not answer, and the colonel rose, and, going to his side, touched him. There was no response. The colonel took down his hands and a chill fell upon us. The major was dead.—New York Daily News. _n THREE MEN KILLED.
