' i MARRIED IN THE TREE TOP. A Story of the 1 Wilderness By CHARLES CLARK MUNN Author of "Pockt Island." "Uncl Terry " and "Rockhaven. I Copyright, IMS, ky t tad Bheprd.) CHAPTER XL. THE SPREAD OF HAPPINESS. : Two months bad elapsed since the specter of Scar Face and David's tor turing conscience had caused hhn to leap into "oblivion, and he was al most forgotten. v The Mizzy falls still poured out from beneath a sheathing of ice, and glittering pendants hung from the rocks beside it or swayed v from the trees that bent toward, it be , low. The mills were i choked with enow, the great house near by ..was ' empty, not a footprint showed that the premises ever had a visitor, and . the ! ghost that once haunted them had peea caaisnea. x ue gossips naa more cheering subjects to discuss, and Mar tin's discovery of Amzi, his good Sa maritan serlce and cafe for that piti ful man, old Cy's voluntary imprison ment with him in the far-away wilder ness, and tne hope that both wouia return in the spring, were discussed at every fireside. There was also an other topic of warm heart interest the news that Angle and Martin were ,now openly pledged to marriage in the near future. It was not long in spread ing, for when Angle somewhat peni tently informed Aunt Comfort, that motherly soul first kissed and caressed her with tearful joy, and then straight way informed Aunt Lorey and (in the vernacular) "that settled it" The snow was ' deep, but that was no hindrance to Aunt Lorey, for be fore the sun had again risen on fair Greenvale, the important news was known all over the village. And what a romantic tale of faith ful devotion well rewarded it was, td how the congratulations and gait wishes came showering upon Anglet For years she hjd lived her patient, helpful life, always thinking of and doing for others, bearing her own troubles and wrongs in. silence, until she had grown very dear to the hearts pf all, and now to come Into her inher ited rights and the crown of love and betrothal almost at once, with the pros pect of again . meeting a father sup posed to be dead, was a reward greater than a fairy princess ever received. And well deserved, as all consid ered. ' - Aunt Comfort zhhrci the reneral love-feast of good-will and wishes, and Martin was also a hero. Dr. Bol was not forgotten, and even Nezer received a few crumbs for his plodding through the snow . early every morning for weeks to build a rousing fire in the schoolhouse for ' Angie-'-acts which wre attributed to his devotion to her. , The social life of Greenvale also re ceived a 'new impetus that winter, and evening gatherings of the middle-aged and young folks, to which Angle and Martin were inevitably invited, became frequent They were considered the guests of honor at all these,, slmble functions, and none complete without them. Angle was, of course, the so cial star, who was' sought as queen;' her wishes were consulted, her sug gestions were asked for, and she was forced to receive a homage she cared not at all for. The general sociability also culminated in several dances where she and Martin were obliged to lead the grand march, and she was be sieged afterwards by would-be part ners. Aunt Comfort also entered into, the spirit of joyousness and battled with Angle's . sense of economy mtil an ample, supply of new gowns and frocks were added to her .wardrobe, "You've been denyin yerself 'n' go ing without things long 'nough," she; said when the subject, came up, "an' now you've got ter dress up, if I've : got ter sit up nights sewin". Then; you've got ter consider Martin's feel--tn's. He's got man's nat'ral pride in' you, that you mustn't forget" - ' He also "considered," and the cost-, ly hothouse flowers kept coming to Aunt , Comfort's in spite of zero weather. ' ; There was another side to the socialv Impetus, and tJteat th tsaliglous orp. Thft church that feati bee& repaired by, Martin, and wher the Rerwend Xf&- uon proclaimed what might be called: the new. school of thought, received good support and was well filled each Sabbath. Most of the audiences were composed of those who had grown lax In their church attendance, or seldom listened to the Reverend Jones, but many alternated between the two churches. It became a species of com petition between the two preachers, which harmed neither and really aided both by provoking widespread. fiiErajs.-: sfon out of church and more general Interest in religion.' The fact was thj Reverend Jones had become old-fogy-ish, his arguments mocovered, and the dry bones of Calvinism had lost their power. The newer ones of Tjni-r tariamism were more appealing to the broader minded, and . even interested, those who still .held to the old theol. ogy. ' In a village like Greenvale noth ing &n be concealed, and the Rever end Upson's Utterances each Sunday were quoted from house to house soon after, discussed in Phinney's store and , Capt Tobey's tavern, and weighed and compared with Reverend Jones' ser mons time and again, and it must be, said that to those sturdy farmers who had wrangled on predestination, doub'W ed Noah's -maritime knowledge, and i discussed the cause of: Adam's tall for years, Parson Upson's theories seemed the more logical and his idea ' of God' the more commendable., A curious and quite unexpected change came over Reverend Jones as well; and he seemed like a preacher uncertain of his ground and anxious to concili ate and'retain the good-will and confl- dence of ' even his own parishioners. In social life he was less dogmatic and more ready to listen patiently to oth ers' opinions, did not at once denounce those who differed with him even in trifles as formerly, and .even admitted that his competitor in thought might have honest intentions and also be do ing good. At first he had denounced Mr. , Upson unsparingly. This tirade now aeassd entirely, and when one evening the "two chanced to meet in a social way, a surprise came, for a cordial hand-shake and most amiable that followed. A marvelous change also came In his sermons. Brimstone was banished,1 the wrath of God was seldom referred to, and a dozen other long-familiar points of creed were apparently for gotten. The character, attributes and Intentions of God also received a( changed interpretation, and as Squire Phinney put it, after listening to one of Jones' newly liberal sermons, Vlt, looks as though Parson Upson was go- la' to convert Parson Jones." Neither did the orthodox following' decrease any as might be expected, for the changed tenor of preaching in that church provoked interest. aGore peo ple went to church each Sunday, tad both were well attend ed. It was an ' outcome that gave good, old Parson Jones more solace than he admitted, and almost as much satisfaction as that felt over Angle's good fortune. It must also be told that she contributed an ample share to his recent peace of mind, for her first business act, after Dr. Sol had been appointed administrator of her .uncle's estate, was to. obtain Jthe CHAPTER XLI. WEDDING BELLS. ' , When the pinks and syringas , once morebloomed in Aunt Comfort's door yard, and the lilacs beautified the weather-worn and moss-cdvered porch, there occurred a wedding in the old orthodox church. Martin would have preferred it in the one he had endowed. Vflf AKA nnf AlfAn Vtlvt 4Vinf K j-ii-t "Vi I J UiU IVJL CYCU lUai, , LUUU5Ut for the most trifling will-and wish of Angle was now law with him. I say wedding, and yet rather might it have been called Greenvale's testi monial to the pair, for never had the village seen one like it For weeks almost every one of the gentler sex was anxiously preparing suitable rai ment; a dressmaker from the city had been called in ' for Angie, a trained quartette and professional musicians engaged for the grand occasion, and a carriage and span from Rlverton to convey the united pair away. For two days fiozehs of kindly hands labored to render the ; church more beautiful. Etery window was draped with flowers and. foliage, the altar hidden beneath lilacs and roses, a carpet was laid from street to door, and when the bride and -groom arrived, every inch of standing room In the church was packed solid, with scores outside, while hardly a "man. woman, or child in Greenvale was absent ' A double row of Angle's pupils flanked the carpeted walk, tossing flowers ahead of her as she entered. Two more privileged led the way up the aisle, scattering buds and blos soms, while the wedding-song, "O Promise Me," filled the fragrant air with divine melody. Then came a bush; and the few sa cred and time-honored words that have opened the doors of heavenly joy or heartrending sorrow to millions, a fervent prayer f torn the lips of Minis ter Jones, never before equalled by him, and a feeling in the hearts of many that God had entered the temple with the bridal pair. Words' were weak; fitly to describe such an event and even less so the moods of all participants. It was a meeting of the rills of joy and sor row, ever flowing alike from all human hearts, as well as a union of two finite beings, and those with gray hair were left to mourn. To Angle it was a sacred and solemn step much akin to the thought pf Christ on the cross, and only by superhuman -effort did she restrain her tears until the seclusion of Aunt Comfort's wa3 reached again. Love to her meant utter self-abnega tion and marriage a pledge to live for, and 'if ' need be, to die . for another. And when the dear old home enclosed her once more, emotion conquered all resolution. ; y. V' "Ye mustn't talve on -so," Aunt Com fort whispered brokenly, when ' she ' clasped" Angle for the final parting, "it'll break my heart when ye're gone. Ye've. been a gffeat blessin' to me all these years, 'n' X want to see ye start off happy. It's nat'ral ye should, 'n' when I can't see yer face no more," I want ter think on 't ez smilin'. It's all that's left me." , Oyer that hallowed journey to and through the wilderness where the. streams wound between fir-clad banks, thewaves rippled upon; the shores of sparkling lakes, the'spruce trees played hide and seek in the camp-fire light, . and the song-birds woke them to say, "Thank God for this doubly blessed existence," a veil shall be drawn. Neither need a question be raised as to how she met and cared for that poor tld, hermit, or how,, at sight of her sweet face once more, old Cy felt as il an angel had entered the forest' But of those left waiting in Green vale, good old Aunt Comfort deserved ' the last word and shall have It. - ; F.or her " the sun of life had almost set; her heart had rolled .away" in the carriage with the chiid she had reared, and sh had naught left except memory and that faded blouse and cap in the attic' chamber. Desolation and ' heart ; hunger were her portion;, tears fol lowed the' wrinkles in her kindlyface and her gray head was bent low in sor row. . . ; When life' seems most joyous to us, we think not, but when our eyes are closing and, memory fading, it -is mother's face that hovers over us at last.'-' "'m .- 1 ;' ' . ; JiOvers ! and Minister Sought Refuge There from the Onslaught of a Ferocious Steer. .
