"WILL SAIN A HUUMD AND LOSE A ION" I i 1 I A Story el Ik* Lssg Ags but Prints* tor to* First Tim* la tots Issus *f Tbs Nsw*. When Col. Mallory died he left hi* young widow and only son well provid ed for. In his life-time he owned a big tobacco plantation, more than a hun dred slave* and bad thousands of dol lars at interest and In bank. Mrs. Mallory was a beautiful woman, and when she first put on weeds of mourning for the death of her husband, everybody said she was even more beau tiful than when dressed in the fashions of the day. She and Willie, her bright little boy of six years, were inseparable. For two year* Mrs. Mallory was as true to the memory of her dead as In the first days of her mourning when she wept oyer her husband's grave. But a woman of her wealth, charms, beauty and accomplishments, in single life, is not long without suitors. She had many and among them some of the first men of the State. One day she called little Willie to her be was 8 years old tben-end in confi dence, said : "Willie, mama is going to marry again. How will vou like to bave another papa, one who will love you and care for you for your mama's sake as your own dear papa did?" Lit tle Willie looked up into the face of his mother with all the affection he was accustomed to show whenever ho look ed her in the eye* and sadly said : "Mama, I love you with all my heart, I do not want you to divide your love for me. and for my poor papa's memory, with any other man," and then with tears forming in his bright little eye* and with quivering lips added : "If you marry again you will gain a husband aod lose your little boy." The reply was too much for Mrs. Mallory, it was like a prophecy of evil j sud the conversation, begun in confi- 1 deuce, emied there. Little Willie went away, but not to hit joyous sports again, j Mrs. Mallory promised herself then j that she would never marry again. When her lover called, she would tell him what little Willie had said, and of its affect upon her and her determina tion. But when Mr. Morrison came he I would not hear to her pleading« for an 1 He ! annulment of their engagement, insisted that it wa# a mere whim of the j boy and that he would never think of I what he had said agstn. He promised '.bat he would seek Willie and win him ! over to himself and all would be well at | the time of the wedding day. Mrs. Mai lory yielded to the persuasive eloquence of her lover and went on with her pre parations for the marriage. Lulu Willie was a school boy tben a country school boy. He and his moth er lived at the old homestead on the plantation, and he attended school two miles from home. When he home be wa* too much engugud with his pony and dogs and in sports with the little pickaninies to note hi* moth er's preparations for marriage, and the servants were forbidden to speak of it to him or to mention it in his presence. So the days rolled on and the prepara tions continued until all was in readi ness and the wedding day came as all fixed wedding day* will come as time goes flying by. Little Willie wa# told that morning what would happen in the evening. He was sent to school a* usual and loaded down with promises for the fu ture if he would be a good hoy and give no trouble at the wedding, be taken by his new papa and their bridal trip to New York and Sara toga, and with his little purse filled with moDey wa* to be allowed to buy whatevor he might see and fancy. He was Instructed to return from school an hour earlier than usual. The teacher had been notified to excuse him at 3 o'clock. The marriage was to take place at 8 o'clock. Mrs. Mallory and her lady assistants were very busy all the day long. Tick ets were out for 200 guests and the pre par« tiens meant a big, fashionable wed ding. wan ai WAN He wa* to mama on Little Willie was not at home at 3 o'clock nor at 4, his usual hour, but everybody hod been too busy to note | the fact. He was not at home at 5. and then it wo» that old Aunt Chine, the colored mammy of the family, discover ed his absence and gave the alarm at the kitchen and in the quarters. Her first words were : "I'se surely oneasy about dat chile, I clare fore God I is, and he's got to be hunted up dis ralnft. I'll start every nigger on dis plantation In saroh of him. Missis has been busy she haint had time to give thought lo dat blessed boy durin' dis whole day, aud I'm gulne to do house right straight and tell her about It, and den I'm guine to start Ben and Jack and Tom, all of 'em, to de school to see what alls de boy. Do Lord knows, if anything has happened to dat blessed chile dis plantation will be clean busted up forever. Dar will be no aod happiness here till Gabriel calls *o no more peace us all to de judgment." Mrs. Mallory was greatly excited when Aunt Cbloe reported the absence of little Willie, but could not believe anything serious had happened to him. He might be playing on the way with his schoolmates. In a short time five or six young negro men were racing to wards the school house as fast as their horses could run, each as if for a prize for finding the missing boy. The school house was closed and the teacher and children gone. The hun ters divided; one went to the teacher's home and others to the homes of pupils living near by. At no place could they learn anything more than that Willie had been excused at 3 o'clock and bad started home. Then a search was be gun in the forests along the roadside and no trail nor truce of him could be found. At 7 o'clock guests began to arrive, and soon thereafter the hunters return ed and reported that they could learn nothing of little Willie. He had disap peared as if the earth had opened and swallowed him. The excitement which followed can never be pictured or paint ed in words. In a short time every male guest and every negro man on the plantation bad gone on the search, and ali the night long the lights pf lamps were flickering in the forests like fire-fly lamps in the Dismal Swamp. When the morning came and the sun lifted the mists from the valleys and hills the tired hunters returned with | no news for the heart broken mother of ' her lost boy. and to her lost forever, fur I The News can teil it now. that no trace ; of him bas ever been found even unto j this day. Aunt Cbloe said : "Dst chile whs «nre ly translated to hebben, he was too good for dis worl'." and week* after wards when she had dreamed of him. j she told the other darkies that she i knew he had been translated likc'Lijah' 1 for she hod seen him in a vision when I he was look up in Ural's chariot wid de horsemen dar -of. j 1 j j Th* Scheel Election.
