EaASED to Both ; OB, How the Tangle Was Straightened. Dick Powers dropped Lis letter -with a groan. It fell by the sida of its long, bILui envelope on the table. The en velope bore upon its bank the faint im pression ct a dove holding in us bill n doatisg ribbon, upon the ends ol which was written, in quaint, but fine little hand, the direction, " To Mr. Bichard Powers." Again the young man groaned, throw ing his arms on the table and hiding his distressed face in his sleeve. The other occupant of the room sat witii his heels on the window-sill and his chair tilted back at a fearful angle. He KBioked, raised his eyebrows, looked at his miserable companion, and went on smoking. The lt-tter, half folding upon its pre cise and lady-like creases, lay face up ward, and the lines betrayed the same quaintly girlish handwriting, all the down strokes primly shaded, each capi te.1 fancily twirled. " Dear Kiebard," it began, QTiakerishly, and it said, tear fully, " I haven't hoard from you for eo long." There was a touch of tender ness in every sentence, and a something that told Low simple the writer mnst have been. Somehow it all gave rise to u picture of a sun-bonnet and a calico cress, a pair of timidly anectionato eyes, and a p. aked chin with a dimple in it. On the next page the letter went on plaintively : " Grandpa isn't very well since ho had that sickness last winter, and when he coughs so it shakes him all ovir. Aud oh ! Bichard, I'm afraid he is never going to be well again. Wouldn't it be dreadful to have him die and me alone without you ?" Then fol lowed a wealth of conlidence in the words : "Bat, if grandpa should die, I should come straight to you, and oh, how happy wo would be then, wouldn't we?" Wandtring on in this loving strain till the end of the third page, the letter closed with: "Affectionately, your own Uarthy.'' By-and-by the young man in the tilted chair, eying his friend meditatively, said: " Your letter don't seem to make you nappy, souienow, Dick. " Oh, Ai ! if you could only know what a villain I am 1" was the rejoinder in a muliled tone from the folds of his sleeve. At this one eyebrow went up and one came down. " Well, it's very likely." He looked lazily through the window at a group of loungera before the hotel op posite, and then continued indifferently: " What's it all about, anyhow ? " " Just read that ! " was the reply, as Dick passed " affectionately your own Marthy's " letter toward him. Fisher read the letter through care fully. " I should say this was a very sweet little girl," he remarked, mus ingly. " So she is, so she is !" said Dick, straightening up. "She's just the sweetest and most confiding little thing in the v.crld, is Martha. That's what hurt me eo. She hasn't a doubt that I'm as true blue, because she's truth fdl the way through Lewelf. And I'm worse than a brute, I am, Al." "If the state of affairs which now dawns upon me dimly is as it seems, I rather think yon are, myself." (jontouna it ! xou re so nangea cool it riles me," said Dick, blushing. "Just imagine yourself in my place for an in stant. Six years ago, when I was 19, 1 first fell iu love, and I've been doing it ever since with decent intervals between. Little Marthy was 15, a little siid rose, Vftrmont girl, just as shy, and as sweet and unsophisticated as that letter, and ell her other letters seem to say she is, yet I fefll like a boy of 19 iu lovo with her again, to talk about it to you. Like the gruat calf that I was, with a dollar in my pocket, nnd no prospects ahead of me, I up and told her how I felt one day in the spring, when tiie grass was so green aud the birds were singing so loud I had to tell something to some body. She looked up at me for a mo ment with such a smile full of tears coming into her eyes, aud such a niilk-and-roso blush glowin.sr upon her cheeks, and I just took her right up in my arms then and ki-ssod her as I'd been longing to do ever sines I first met her, six weeks before. Ever since that she has consid ered herself engaged to nie." " A precocious younlcr you were at 19, 1 mnst say, and a ripe acquaintance it must have been that rooted, blossomed and fruited in six weeks." " Well, ui'ika fau as you ple.e," an swered Dick, gloomily ; " you have the whole story, aiyhow, and ou can't think worse of me thaa I do of myself." "No, Dick, Ihivon't by any means all the storv yet. As you're 25, 1 sup pose this little girl, now 21, has been for six years hoping and trusting in you. Tory likely she's never permi tsd her.-e!f another lover. Why, it's pa thetic ! E'ery year slio has tho'.Lgut, maybe, you would come back ; sV.e has never had a suspicion of you ; bho has dreamed about yon and prayedtor you. It's a burning shame And look at yon, violently jst'nclied to every preltv grl yjn seo, tidi-g with thaa,iWat a time. uanclng with them, making love to them aud dressing like a dandy when yoa ought to be in tho Green mount ains, wearing butternut and carrying Marthy's milk-pail." Dick groaned in anguish, of spirit, " And I've always told her I couldn't afford to come after her quite yet. Give it to me. yoa can't hit too hard ; but, oh ! do holp me out of this scrape." "Help you out? Well, I should think you'd be glad to be in it. Just to think of that little Vermont blossom, tasting like cream and maple sugar, I'll warrant, if blossoms ever do taste ; just think of her dropping down any minute among all the furbelows, the frizzes, the paints and the powders of the ladies in our set !" "Oh, Lord! Al, don't harrow up a fellow so. I don't believe you imagine yet how deep I'm in for it. ' There's Kate Kichardson, now, when you talk about flowers ; she's a tiger lily ; she's a red cactus ; she's a tea rose ; she's mag nificent ; she's gorgeous ; she's radiant. Ah, Al Fisher, can't yoa see how I love her?'; "And she?" -the question was like a flame springing from a bed of coals. " Well, I just thought I never was so' in love in my life. I wasn't sure about her ; but one night a month ago I was carried away. I forgot all about Mar thy, and I asked h-r to marry me. By George ! she said she would, and I should have been too happy altogether if, after my first transport, little Marthy hadn't occurred to me again. Now I'm engaged to both of them, don't ymi see, and it's a deuce of a mess. I wouldn't give up Kate if I could, and I don't see how I could give np Marthy if I would." A silence fell between the two then, iu which the falling of a cigar ash might have echoed, a-sd tho twilight, stealing down, came like a veil over silence. It was fully six months later when Kate Kichardson walked into asieeping car at Omaha, followed by baggage and a porter. Her step wai so quick and confident, her accoutrements were so appropriate, and the porter followed her with so deferential an air, that the pass engers, making themselves comfortable on either side the aisle, looked after her with great respect for her style. "Very common scrt of people ; shan't make the acquaintance of any of them," Miss Richardson thought as she observed them in a glance without seeming to. She paused near the middio of the car. " Put my thing3 here," she said to the porter. "I have the whole section, and you may pile them all on the front seat. She sat down upon the back seat, and spread her skirts comfortably, took out her bilk handkerchief and wiped her lips, sighed as enduring a penance, smoothed the collar of her u'ster, and thought what a bore crossing the conti nent was. Tho prominent setting of a ring visible under her glove mado one forefinger noticeable? and it might have been tenderness or not, but she placed her elbow on the arm of the seat and rested her lips upon it. In the meantime the car was rapidly filling. There was much talk between passengers and porter, and from her square of window she could see plies of trunks being carted forward. By and by the cars gave a little shake and qui? er, as if rousing; then a jerk, a dizzy, gliding motion, and then Miss Biehard son became cons'ious that some one spoke to her. It 'was a voice that was apology itself as it said: "Oh, if yoa pleasa, ma'am, it's a mis take, and I've made so many mistakes;" and it was almost a cry for help. It had color in its cheeks and its hps, a little, little mouth, and a shy light in its hazel eyes. It carried a portmanteau, and the porter towered over all with a patroniz ing a:r. Miss Richardson was disturbed. " But, porter," said she. " I had engaged the whole of this section. I don't want any one in with me; I shall have uo place for my things." The hazel eyes were turned piteously upon her, but the voice was tinged with a bit of tliffuity, albeit tonched with tears, as it auawert d: " Never mind; per- cupied." "They ain't no other, 'thont it's a gentleman's in the lower berth, if you don't mii;d that, miss," said the porter. The distressed fase was a picture. "Oh, very well," Miss Richardson in terposed, in a borad tone; " I suppose I shall be able io man pre, and I dare say we shall be comfortable enough." The portmanteau was placed as snug neighbor to the stylish traps in the front seat, and the little woman made herself quite small in the comer furthest from her grand companion, never so much as attempting to stil ag ance from the win dow monopolized by Miss ltielvvrdsou's elbow. But presently sbe leane" toward Miss Richardson nu:l touched her shoul der softly. " I'm very much obliged to von," said she, gratefully, " and I'm Kure I shan't 'neoiumode you any more than I can help." Miis Richardson mado her a gracious reply, and became interested .in her book. At length she yawned, and closed it. The afternoon was passing. The scene was rich in billowy green and stretching plain, and across tiie green level tt he day was mellowing away to its close, the sunlight faliiupr upon it like iuuowing grain. Miss Richardson felt the timid and confiding little touch again upon her afm, and turned to meet with her hand some eyes the wistful, appealing ones looking toward her. " Would yon let me go into the dining room to dinner with you '?" asked the flute voice with a tremble of apprehension in it. "Oh, "yes," saM Miss Richardson,' smiling, " I'd jest as lief you would as not" "Oh! thank you so much," as the reply, after a breath of relief. " 1 should never have conrago to go in and eat alone. The waiters are in such a hurry, and I don't know where to sit, and I never can find my owa car when I'm ready to eome back. " ' So it was that Miss Richardson came to have a charge, and, somehow, so much clinging timidity opposed to her own in dependence seemed a sort of bond. Be fore the second day was out she had given her dainty and pretty companion a petting top or two, short and content ed laughter rippled up between them, confidential undertones of talk passed from one to the other, and finally Mis Biohnrdton leaned forward aad said : " I haven't any idea what your name is I think it ought to be Posy, though." And then the snmll woman laughed as she answered : " it in't, though, it's Marthy :Marthy Fairchild." And" then the magnificent gorgeous, radiant Kate replied, just as she would have caressed a bird : " Ah ! and I shall call you Mai thy, then shall I not ? " Not on dim thought of warning had fib?, not a sinir'e swift fueling of recoil, not an Mh tlwt ie v. as hutcinc to her heart a rival she who held away among' I men with waltz, and tete-a-tete, and re-' partee. . . J But under tho feet of those who tret J volcanoes the ground will sometimes break ; one cannot forever tafely walk the edga of the precipice ; thia ice will part. They were sitting side by side, e3 usnal, one evening ; the window framed a calm, mild star. Sitting so silently, how strange if they hud known each was saying over and over -the same name. The etar was shining kindly shining and twinkling like au eye mildly shrewd, and then it gave place to another and another, till the night sky seemed shaken full with a lustered dust. Pres ently Mis 3 Richardson began to hum f. little, in her soft contralto, and Marthy's bird-like soprano took it up like a caroL under a breath. The men under the dull lamp in the further end of the car held their fingf on their crmls for a moment, and the fretful baby ceased its crying. Two women hushed gossip ing, and stared, and, under pretense of a flare, the passing porter turned down the flame in a lamp while he stopped to listen. "Marthy," said Miss Richardson, very gently, " where did you learn that ? It's such an old-fashioned, senti mental thing. I shouldn't wonder if it had been a iove-song iu 1776." " Ob, yes ; I shouldn't wonder if it had. 1 learned it way back in Ver mont oh, how far away that seems now ! 1 used to sing it with Richard but that seems only yesterday, though it has been years and yars. I've never told you about Riehurd, have I ? His name is Powers, and it is he that I'm coming to California to meet. A long, long time ago, when I was such a little girl I scarcely remember it, some kind of sickness broke oit, aud mother and father took it and died. I can jast see mother lying with a white flower in her hand as they jlosed the cofiin lid, and then m a day or two some woman said she wondered wh;vt was to be done w;ith me. Somehow or other I got to grand pa's iu among the hills, and the cows that gave me a living. Grandpa was just my mother to me over again, and there I stayed and was so happy with him. I have always been a little girl, and I never shall be anything else. When I am an old woman it seems as though I shall still be a little girl How it all came .bout I never could imagine, but it was just as the flowers came up in tho spriug. and as the fruit gets ripe in the fsl'. Grandpa said one morning he should have a young man come to help me with the milking, and before night I knew Richard ; and, somehow, I think I must have been ripening ready to know him, for my heart was all open to him from the first. He cams up to me when it was twilight, and said he, 'Good evening, Marthy,' and then I seimed to fall into a flutter, anl to feel that he setrmed to know it Oh! I never can tell yon how Richard seemed to me. Every night, after that, as I went along the meadow path he came and said, ' Good evening, Marthy' just so : and I took to libtening so Lard for hia com ing that my heart hurt me, and beat in my bps and cheeks, and all the time grandpa never knew. One day the sky was so blue and the air was so sweet I was certain that something was going to happen, and whether it was Ihe birds singing or my heart beating out a rhythm I do not know, but iu a moment I seemed to be standing among the flowers, for Richard had taken me in his arms. "Oh, life had just begun to me then, and not one day since, not even the day grandpa died, has been all sorrow; though dark days thtre have been, too, for in a few weeks more my Richard went away, so that by and by he could marry his ' bud of a girl ' that's what he always called me ! Oh, how tender and true he is I What a grand place his heart is to live in ! What a little queeu he has crowned mo ! His letters have been so loving and so sweet that one never came without carrying me through the space ut heav-n ; and they were such sorry little ones I could write iu answer. So many noble women mubt have loved him. But he has loved his little Marthy all the time. Ah, Miss Richardson," and her earnest, reverent tone deepened in its half whisper, "can vou imagine anything at ail about what I tell yovj?" "No," replied Miss Richardson, bit terly, " for there is no romance, nst ono oTuvn of it. in mv life. The romance I had was spoiled just a short time ago. Keop your faith in your Richard, Mar thy, but I have none left tor man. You miwt go on now an! lei me know the rest." " I would rather die than lose my faith iu Richard," faid Mavtiiy, tremulously. " There-is such a little more to toll," she went on then; " all the time his 'letters told me he could not affvrd to come ; ha was waiting in hopes, and, oh, if the time was to him as- to me, then to both it was a dreary, dreary waiting. And grandpa began to fret ; ho wanted to see me married before ho died. But one day, a month ago,.he ditd, and left me alone with tho cows. Then, to show. Richard how much I yet loved him, and how little I cared whether he was rich or whether h3 was poor, I wrota him a glad letter, that I was coming to bim at last.' And, oh, I am coming to hirh soon, soon. When I reach tho end of my journey, there he will be to take me home his" home. I can almost see him now, &o glad to find me again." She was moving restlessly about like the wind, and her hands were winding their fingers about each ether, her eyes shining, and her chin with its cleft pointing into a ray of the moon. "I think I know your Richard," said' Miss Richardson, by-and-by. "He is a tall, handsome man with blonde eyes and hair, and a pleatant, bright way with him. You know I live in Sacra mento, too." Iu a few minutes the porter came along again, and Miss Richardson gave orders to have only the lower berth made, "for we will sleep together to night, Mai thy," she said, quietly. So all the night long she lay awake, with her arms aronnd little Marthy. All the night long, thinking and think ing, she lay with the sweet breath of the trusting child woman falling on her left band the hand was now thorn of its sparkling ring. "I loved him, too,"' she cried to her self, suddenly, aud thea her arm tight ened upon tho child-heart beating under it, and the throb ran through her like an appeal for nierey. The ears tramped into and tlirough the night, and by-and-by the morning came, as fair aud fresh as though Kate Richardson had not made a sacrifice the night before. When the train pulled into the depot at Sacrameitto, Miss Rich u-dson espied Dick Powers wailing, and by his side was Al Fisher. He was haggard and in distress ; he was thin; and had- grown five years older tliau when k1 had itrft bim two months b-.ixJEe. ll- her. too, and ran along by the window grasping the hand she held out to him'.' " Oh, Kate f Kale I" lie pleaded, im ploringly: , ... She went to the door to meet him, and drew him along the aisle; " Dick, here is Marthy," Kaid she: , He looked at the wild rose blooming so sweetly for hitu, autL as he saw thrf hazel eyes brimming up with drops, the falling corners cf tho shy mouth quiv ering, the old, sweet beauty grew upon him again, and a hungry smile dawnetf in his eyes. " Oh, Marthy ! little Marthy f he' murmured. " At last, dear Richard, at last ! " she' cried, and he gathered her in his arms. Al Fisher to k Miss Richardson home, ind she was gravely polite and smiling all the way. But it was two years be- ' fore she allowed him to draw the last drop of bitterness oat of her heart ; and, even then, she gave the last kiss" before her marriage to Baby Marthy. Power never would tliink of calling her any name beside Kate Richardson. Eclgravia Magazine? ,; Tractical Application of KnoirlcCje.
