THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO. TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 1882.
7 TWO MEN AND ONE WOMAN, Dearme! I'm sick of this kind of life. J wish " And there Lettie Wayne stopped and leaned on the window sill, with her broom standing beside her in a dejected attitude, as if it had sudden- Iy been plunged into disgrace by a realization of the menial character be-j longing to it. She iooked out across the meadows, Uj the kills beyond, and saw nothing m tne pleasant landscape, one was thinking of what was out beyond the Lills, and her eyes had caught a pleasant vision of the splendor in :hat far-away world. 'It's nothing but sweep and dust, and bake bread and wash dishes from one days end to another." she imir-; inured by ami bv. as she took up her broom ag:in and fell to sweeping, putting in lung, hard strokes by way of emphasis. Tm sure there must Or- something more to oe enjoyed in life than will ever come to the man; but which simply meant nothing at, About me, for instance," stiggest stuys here in this dull ; all. But Lettie didn't know that. 1 ed John ; "If I asked vou to marry -i woman who piace. li there .isn't, I don' t se-j as ihere is much to live for." 'Good morninsr. Lettie," spoke pleasant voice at the window. Lettie started, looked half dis- pleased, and answered with only a! 1 T-a -1 - .. 1 remember, that you liked pinks :er tnan any otner nowcr. l uiun-t snow you'd change your mind. Bnt I suppose persons change their minds iibout flowers as well as '.ther things." Lettie flushed up a little at that. She understood what he meant. "I suppose a person has a perfect right to change his mind if he sees tit lo," with a very emphatic flourish of iier broom among some imaginary cobwebs near the ceiling. "Of course," answered John ; "that Is, if they have good reason for chaug- ins itr "I take it for granted that every body is his own judge about that," responded Lettie. "I don't see as it's anybody else's business." "You're right there, too," admitted John. "Now, I haven't asked you , why you've changed your mind about j s, certain matter, iettie, Decause you give me to understand tnat vou con aider I haven't any business to ask you anything about it. I'm not go ing to ask any questions, Lettie, but I would like to be on friendly terms. I don't see why you should treat me :&g if 1 were an enemy, when I haven't said that I blamed you in the least for changing your mind." Lettie colored up, as if she felt guilty of meanness, and managed to gay that perhaps she had been wrong, but she "had heard he felt hurt, and sis she didn't just understand what reason he had to feel so, she she" &nd the remainder of the sentence was rendereed unintelligible by the Tigorous whisking of the broom up and down the floor. "I'm sorry you put so much confi dence in what you hear," said John "I never told any one so. If I had anything of the kind to say, 1 should have said it to 3Tou." Before Lettie made reply the gate -clicked, and John looked around to see a young mon sauntering up the Tiath. "I see I'm likelv to be in the wav bo I'll go. Good morning, Lettie," and John departed, with a nod at the newcomer as they met. Letti e's ace was rosy now, but not with displeasure. Evidently the new visitor wTas more welcome than the one who had just gone. "Well," he accosted, leaning in across the sill wrhere John Hartley had been a moment before, "haven't been having a lover's quarrrel, have you ? I fancied young Hartley looked rather glum about something." "Persons never have lovers' quar rels when they aren't lovers, do they V laughed Lettie "They told me you and Hartler were lovers- when I came here," answered Theo. Vaughn, picking up the pinks John had left and pulling them to pieces slowly as he watched Lettie. "People say a great many absurd things," returned Lettie. "I like John well enough as a friend, but I never cared for him in any other wav, and no one has any business to say I did. I wish folks could mind their own business," added Lettie, with a flash of temper. "Aunt Jane's been giving me a lecture, just because I went out rowing with you last night, and it makes me cross every time I think of it." "I'm sorry if I have been f lie means of causing trouble in your family affairs," and Vaughn dropped pink petals on Lettie's newly-swept floor. sugiiL giauce ul iiiu young man lean-; coming oacK it ne coma succeed in i ing across the window sill, without j doing what he hoped to.

"I knew you liked them.'' Vaughn went awav.

"Some day you'll net rid of being domineered over," with a look and smile that set Letties foolish heart in . a flutter. '-Some day ! If we could only force circumstances to come to our terms there wouldn't be t be any some! ? days. It would be now Vaughn staid there for an hour .with his prettv, tender speeches, which might have meant so much, j A week later he went back to the Icitv. Lettie could feel the kiss that ahp left on her cheek at nartimrfor; days after, as she thought of the thou-1 sand tender things he had said, and of the vague hints he had given of : - , I .1 1 1 bet-mursed her lonesome feelings and herjM Lolunrna Heights, was called yes hopes and was miserable and happy, j after a fashion, all at the same time, j If no one else believed Vaughn had I been in earnest she did. The fall went bv and winter came ; i and with it a letter from Aunt Marcia, savins that she wished Sister Jane would let Lettie come and stav with I her awhile and see the city. Lettie was wild to go. Vaughn was there. Of course her Aunt Marcia's station was at the lower part of the social ladder, and Vaughn would never be likely to descend to it unless there was a great attraction for him there. But, if she went to the city she could see him, and when he fouud that she was there, then, then ! And Lettie wove such delightful and foolish dreams of what might be when he discovered that she was near him that she was sure she should be broken hearted if she did not go. She went. Aunt Jane saw plainly enough why she wanted to go, and gave a grim consent after thinking it over. Perhaps it might be the means of curing Let ie of her foolish fancy. For some davs Lettie heard nothing of Vaughn. Then, in a crowd, some one spoke of him, and from the con versation she learned that he would be at a new opera that was to be given that night, in company with some friends from the sou th. She coaxed Aunt Marcia into going to the opera. She wanted to see Vaughn ; to let him know that she was there. If he found that out she felt sure he would come and see her at once. The brilliant scene bewildered her. She had never seen anything so gor-j ceous before. It was Jike f:iirv land or heaven. The music wrapped her in ecstacy, and seemed crying over and over : Poor, foolish, foolish Lettie' He is coming, he is taming ! She looked about her. Suddenly she started, and turned paie with emotion, for she had seen him. He was just coming in with a woman on his arm. A woman whose face was exquisite as a fl ver, and whose gar ments were rich aud beautiful, mak ing her conspicious among the many radiant aud splendidly dressed women there. Two men in front of them began to talk of Vaughn. "He's a lucky fellow5 one of them said. 'She's as rich as a Jew, they say." 'She's lovely, that's sure," respond ed the other. 4 'I'd iike to put that faqein my next picture. It would do for Cleopatra's if it had a Hi tie more fire in it. When did you say they were to be married ?" 4 'At Christmas," was the reply. The engagement is formally an nounced." Lettie's face was as pale as death. But she gave no sign of the pain she felt. Suddenly Vaughn looked that way and saw her. lie started a little, then he put up his glass and surveyed her with an air of curiosity that stung Lettie to anger. She fl ished a scorn ful look at the man who could trifle with a woman's heart as he had done with hers, aud then looked at ihe stage and vouchsafed him no further attention. Hut she saw but little of what was soisig on there. She was ttllllkinr about the dream ! h:it WtlS over, the love that was dead. Vaughn had passed out of her life forever. But her heart was very sore. The next day she said she was homesick,and in spite of Aunt Marcia's protests she went back to Marshville and her old life. Aunt Jane saw that she had had some experiences that she did not care to talk about, .and asked no questions. Butshe could imagine wiat they were. Months went by. Agaiu John Hartley leaned across the window sill and ottered Nettie a haiuiiuJ or pinks, This time she too"k them "They are the sweetest flowers, j after all," she said, hiding her face in them. 'Have you got back fo your old opinion, Lettie?' he asked : "if you have changed vonr mind about pinks, perhaps you have about other things." ''Perhaps I have." -he answered. wit h a rosy face, whose color was half of shame at remembrance of her vear- j old lolly. me. Lettie, what would your answer 'be?" "I couldn't .-av till von asked me' answered Lettie. " ' "Well, then, will you marry me?"' cried John, desperately. . . , r . 1 i "it you want mo to. Knowing now foolish Tve been." Then John came in and kissed her. Aunt Jane, who was going by the kitchen door, declared to herself that Lettie had come to her senses after all. Falconer's Love Letters to Miss Hale. Ths case of Alexander Iv. Falconer, the member of Plymouth church, who was arrested for writing annoying letters to3Iis Katie L. Hale, of Ko. terday before Justice Walsh in the city hall police court m Brooklyn, and the examination was set down for next Tuesday. Falconers bail was faxed at S1,OOU, m default of which he was sent to the Raymond 3treet jail. The following is a sample of the let- ters he wrote, three of which are em- bodied in the complaint against him. j mi ... i t i iney were written wmie he was m Washington recently : 465 Penx-ave, Washington, D. C. My Darling Miss Hale : I hasten to tell you that I think my attention to you is the most ridiculous piece o. foolishness that ever entered a per , sons heaa. a complete delusion which you have treated very properly in deed. So I will now stop all love letters, etc., as I see you have so many beaux that vou cannot attend to me. T think you will be left all alone some j day bv those. I cannot afford to wait any longer lor you ; you are too smart; you will knowimore when you are older. I love you all the same, huw- j ever, and always shall in spite of j everything, and I will never cease to i love you and will watch your move ments in future if you want to be my wife. I shall be satisfied for you to niarry some good young man. You are too naughty not to answer my let ters. I suppose the more you whip me the more 1 will love you, and I tuiuk you are right. Besides this, your dear mamma, I suppose, has her hysterics over it. I will return to Brooklyn and take you outdriving' next month some day. Will you go? I It would be too hard to have me come I from Washington and then be disan-i pointed. I watch and wait every day expecting a letter irom my dear. 1 long for the dav to come, when I shall brush the lovely locks from your brow and plant a kiss upon your forehead. I am almost wild, mv love, for vou are above eveivthiug hf the world. loving and devoted admirer (wish vou . t j- f would say what you intend to do with J me ) I will do as you say ; it is all there is in life worth living for. 1 am a pei feet slave. A. K. Falconer. liis counsel says the letters do not come within the statute under which the arrest was made. Rescued From Death. The following statement from William J. Cough lin, of Somerville. Mass., is so remarkable that we beg to ask for it the attention of your readers. He says: In the fall of 1S76 I was taken with a vio lknt blekdim; oy thk lungs followed by a se vere cough. I soon began to lose my appetite and flesh. I was so weak at one time that 1 could not leave m v led. In the summer of IS I was i admitted to the city hospital. bile there the doctors said I had a llole in my left luug as big as a half dollar. I expended over "a hundred dollars in doctors and medicines. I was so far gone at one time a report went round that I whs dead. I gavu up hope, but a friend told me of I!t- WILLIAM HALL'S BALSAM FOP.

' Some of the old saiuis who can't hug the young girls of Zion in balls, and who haveabolishedround dances in con- sequence, have now invented a new kind of pedro, which gives them more , of a chance. They start card parties at the evening socials, and whenever anybody catches anybody else's pedro, the parly winning has the right to kiss the other five times. The game is played with an equal division of the sexes, and it is rare fun for the old eiders ol Israel, lne otner evening :old Bishop fixed up a pack oi l card with nine pedros and started a game among some of the pretiiest girls of the ward. It happened, however, that the girls anticipated his lii tie game and had a pack all ready without any pedros in. Thev rung in the cold deck on the old fellow and started the game. ! The old fellow made ome big bids, j got et back every time. All this! ain't this a nico game ; so exciting." After playing an hour the old fellow didn't see the color of a single pedro, and the glances and jiiggles of the girls caused him to susnect. that the daiwrhtei of Zion were rather getting the best of him. He finally got so far off the board that he was.'omparatively speak- ing, oul oi signt, ami nnaiiy gave up the place to a young man "who was seated -near by watching the game. In a twinkling the girls transposed the packs again, and for the next two , hours the smacks that man won could ' be heard all over the room. The old Bishop, who began to drop on himself, was tmj m:lddest man in all the land, and is now putting up a-job to find out the girls who changed those packs, and cut off them from the church.
