OUR BEST SPEECH NEVER DELIVERED.
Tht Reason and the Disappointment Which Followed. A Story si too Long Ago. There are tints and shadows in every life. There are bright days and dark days in every calendar. There are days of pleasant memory and days one would gladly forget. It is of a dreary day and of the disappointment it brought we would write in this story. In June 18--. we were to graduate from one of the obtest chartered and best colleges in the Old Dominion. For four years we had applied ourself diligently and studiously to our text books, and had the assurance of being graduated with honor, not the honor of valedicto rian, but of winning the orator's medal, whieh made us the senior hero in the eyes of the sophomores and freshmen. A few weeks before commencement we had delivered a society oration for which we were given much credit by the faculty and students of the college and by the press of the city, und for '.he reputation made thou we were ex[>ccted todoourselves honor and the institution great credit on commencement day. Years before going to college Mar gorie Taliaferro was a classmate of ours at a country school. We often sat at the same desk and studied from the sanre book. Margorie was a brown eyed, rosy cheeked little beauty, as cute as she was pretty aud ns pretty as she was quick and bright. She was first in her classes, first in girlish sports aud first in the hearts of all her schoolmates. She never failed to get first choice of all the red apples, luscious peaches, oranges, candies and nuts brought to school. W'e were in the class of her lovers, and while many of the boys jeal ously believed us to be the favored one, yet it was a fact, she had never spoken a word to anyone so as to confirm the belief. In the course of years as the years rolled on we completed our course at the private school and Margorie was sent to a female college in another state, and we to a male college iu our native state. In the correspondence I which followed our separation her let- j tens were as gems of poetry and inspi rations from the Muses. They were often full of sentiment but not one ever contained a word of love. As at the country school so in her letters she par ried the subject of love as adroitly and skillfully as a fencing master parries the thrusts of his adversary's sword. On that subject she was as tantalizing as the fabled waters that reached the parched lips of the criminal and reced ed before he could band his head and moisten his lips with its cooling wares. But while she gave u.s no encourage ment she gave us no rebuffs. For four years her magnetic letters kept us as a pendulum oscillating between hope and doubt. But a lover's trouble like a farmer's lane has its turn and its end. On the 1st of June Margorie graduated and re turned to her home. We would gradu ate in three weeks. As soon as she wrote to us from home we answered her letter in these words: ''In two weeks I will win my degree. My literary edu cation will be as complete as this col lege can make it. I shall hasten home to see my mother and then go abroad. How long I shall remain away depend« upon your answer to this letter. Yon know of my feelings for you. I told you hundreds of times before you went to college, and I have written you ns many times since. You have never given me an expression of your feelings for me. Unless you do in reply to this letter I will not see you when I return home. I shall interpret your silence in this mat ter as unfavorable, and in that case it were better that I should forget you." By return mail a reply came. After expressing her delight at being at home again and telling me of her anticipated pleasure at hearing my graduating speech Margorie added: "I have been reading the papers whieh mentioned your society oration In such compli mentary terms, and I desire to say if you will acquit yourself with like credit at commencement and on the 4th of July following, I will be pleased to give you an expression of my feelings for you, and for which you have urged me so many years. My father informs me ♦ hat our people will celebrate the 4th of July as they have never done before, and you have been selected orator of the day. Five thousand people will he present. I shall hear you at commence ment and on the 4th of July, win additional honors on those occa sions. I will be greatly pleased if you Jo." At commencement we met expecta tions of our friends and winner of the orator's medal. Margorie heard us and was cordial in her *1 May you was an euBy COD gt-atulatioiis and a[>oko of the applause given ua but made uo special mention of her pleasure at our success. When we reached home the commit tee notified ua of our election as orator for the 4th and entered into details of their preparations for the célébrai ion of that patriotic day. saying: ''Everybody will be there." The next day we visited Margorie and told her of our acceptance of the mitlee's imitation, and added: "A word of encouragement from you will They concluded by inspire me to the crowning effort of my life.' She smilingly huid: "Wait until the evening of the Fourth and I wi 1 t. -II you what I have kept from you all these years. com He of g.axl cheer and do your best." For ten days we confined ourself to our library and to the preparation of our speech. When it was done we were satisfied us if it were well done. We memorised It perfectly. On the evening of the 3rel wo received this note from Margorie: ''Tomorrow will be a great day. The eyes of thousands will be upon you and all ears will be keen to catch what you may say. 1 want to be near the speaker's stand that l may not miss a word. You have my best wishes. - ' That night we slept as if enjoying the refreshing sleep of tht Just. If we dreamed the dreams have long since been forgotten. In the early morning we were awakened bv the heavy roar of distant thunder. The clouds were gathering and at sunrise the rain beguu to pour down as it did in the days of Noah. All the day long it fell as if the windows of heaven were opened and an order had gone forth: ''Let it rain." Nobody ventured from home that day. The next morning after an early break fast we were on the stage and hasten ing away to the depot to catch a train for New York. We never delivered our speech, but months afterwards met Margorie again, and,—and, with a mer ry twinkle of her eye she said : ''The Fourth of July was a dreary and gloomy day, wasn't it." 1 11 ll * >U Hull * Woodruff guarantee every bottle of Chaml>erlain's Cough Remedy and will refund the money to any one who is not satisfied after using two thirds of the contents.
