THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : JMONDAY. MAY 20. 1889.
ADA. Bolgrnvirt : "Uofflntild , " enhl my undo Jupp a nnmo Hint nhvnys sot my tooth on edge "you nro n , fool ; n good- looklnf ? ono , It is true , but an arrant fool. You Imvo a perfectly unequalled jj facility for making n mesa of everything you nro sot to do , nnd therefore you must take the only course which , BO fnr ns I can see , will onublo you to exist as a good looking fool , nnd marry n girl with money. " Mr. .Tupp made this flattering speech In his city counting house , when his clerks had all dltappoarcd for what they considered worth calling dinner , and the eminent tallow merchant was alone with his nophow. Uncle Jupp had a shrewish wife nnd n couple of children , n portcntlously ugly pair , who. of course , would Inherit his money , Ho was not n bad sort of man , though his brutal rudeness in address ing mo was Invariable. Ilia chocks , howovcr , somewhat softened It. But ho was of an irritable temper nnd of city notions. 1 , on the contrary , was essentially only happy on the Hwcot fihndy bide of Pall Mall , having Wust End tastes and proclivities which would have been llltingly mated with my unclo's cash. "You've tried Sandhurst , and were ignomlniouflly plucked ; you never had brains for the bar ; you tried civil on- glncoring , and a pretty premium i paid Orbit & Wbeolor , till at length they IS canceled your articles , as you woru | j demorall/.fng the otllco by your idle ness ; you tried this olllce and made nothing of the books but blots ; you couldn't even keep the secretaryship of the Pickled Onions Supply association a nlco little thing which any dulTor who could write a formal loiter could Imvo held. Why , old Mango , ' the chairman , my old chum , saidovon for mo they couldn't any longer keep a congenital idiot in the berth. Nobody knoxvti the bother you've been to mo : you do nothing but got into debt ex cept piny billiards and oven then you're always making a hash of it. " All this I listened to silently , not as admitting it , but on the principle of letting mine uncle run himself down. I had in my pocket his check for my usual quarterly allowance , and it was the increased amount thereof , from various little extra necessities which a pontlonmn of culture appreciates , that had led to this oration. I did not ob ject to listen. It was a warm day , and though I think the counting hou&o Bmolls perhaps iinaginarily rather tallowy , yet it was shady , and the chair I was in was the best in the room , I should have liked iv cigur , but the odor of tobacco was a thing Jupp < te Co. would never have dreamed of tolerat ing. ing.My uncle kept on grumbling to him self as bo looked over bis letters , and at last , turning round on his stool , ho eyed me for a moment frowmngly. Then ho began again , and with an evi dent relish for his task. "You'll Imvo to Hvo on that 100 a year your poor mother left you" ( I shud dered ) , "unless you can increase it. I can't go on allowing you an income to fritter away. I've many calls on my means" ( the ordinary formula of all of fensively rich people ) , "and I've paid a great deal of money for you , Master Koginalu. You'ro lazy and extravagant. nrttunUly , and by long practice a mag- niilcoiu blunderer. Indeed , if it beT --T rsaiblo to make a mull of anything you're the man to do it. " Hero ho paused and rattled the money in his pockets , watching the clock to see if any of his unhappy clerks over- staid tbo'ir time , while I wondered if anybody else could show a more uncom promising old rullhin to bo related to. But I was of too refined , too bensitivea mind to engage in a vulgar or personal argument. Besides which , perhaps , is as potent a reason I wanted ore the interview ended to borrow some money of Unclo.Tupp. Else you may bo sure I should not have been sitting on n line summer's day in that murky den in Mincing lane a day on which the very name of tallow seemed odorous. "Yos , " said my uncle , as if he really liked the taste of the words , "you're lazy , stupid , a spendthrift , a nincom poop and a blunderer , and you certainly act , so far as I have scon , up to each of these characteristics most consistently. But there is no doubt you are good- looking. Your father didn't give you talent , ho hadn't any cleverness , nor had my poor sister , or sho'd never have married him , but ho gave you a line name ( Lcstcrloy certainly sounds bettor than Jupp , when you liavon't a banking account , that is ) , and ho was a handsome man , and you're , as I said , a handsome fool. Now that's where your ohanco is. There are plenty of plain girls with money who don't want a hus band with brains a barber's dummy that could simper as you do" ( olTonsivo old brute , ov6n the prospect of a loan hardly compensated foi this srt of poro- eonality ) ; "and , therefore , 1'loloncomor do something for you. But this is really the last time I'll lend you money enough to cut a good llguro at Cowes , whore there are some- moneyed epin- f > tors I know , for my own friend Plum has a house there now he's retired. Ho'll ' put you up to Bomo good things. Never mind ago or looks cash ie the thing. Than you'll bo provided for. You require a wife to keep you ; you never could keep a wife , nnd you ain't worth your saltat any sort of occupation , unless it were as a shopwalker , and then you'd send the Indies to the wrong departments. So do as I tell you , go down to-morrow , I'll give you the chock for expenses now" ( oh , delightful words ) . "I shall call at your lodgings to-morrow and pay your rent , toll your landlady , and any other debts. But , remember - member , if you don't make a hit now needn't from . " you expect anything mo. "I shan't undo " I murmerod , , , grato- fullv. "Well , whether you do or don't , you won't got it , " said no as ho took out his check book and proceeded to till up a loaf. "If you can't got your no3t feathered now you can go foathorloss. Your aunt ( she was a sour-faced , thin woman , who hated mo on account of my good looks contrasting with these of hoi- girl and boy about as ugly a pair as you could meet with ) , "is always grum bling with me for spending to much money , and sho'a right , " ( henpecked old dodderer ) . "So remember , if you don t jocuro n rich wife this time , you can go to well , any place where an ass is at a premium. " With thcao touching words my unolo handed mo the second check , nnd , nod ding in sign of farewell , immersed him self in hit ) correspondence. 1 foil much relief as I loft the associations of tallow behind mo , but not myself until n swift hansom had deposited mo nt n well- known restaurant in the Strand/nftcr cashing the check on the way. I always did hate the city atmosphere. I am nut a business man never want to bo , Bomo follows , like myself , nro born to ndorn life , not to bo useful in it. And if a fellow is good-looking , graceful in man nor , nnd has a pretty name like Lestorley , cun you wonder if he doesn't care for the working bees ( who are as much given to show their stlnga na their honey ) , being himself a buttorfly. Why , certainly not. And you are not to take all my savnt'o unolo's rudeness as correct. There wore seine things that I could do aud bettor thnn most mon. I could wnltz exquisitelyand 1 had a Spanish facility for rolling cigarettes. I dined as n gontlomnn should , nnd over a really unsurpassable bottle of Burgundy rellected on my Cowos expe dition. It seemed a grcnt pity that n man with my personal gifts should bo the victim of matrimony ; but oven that resource was better than existing if men can exist in the proper sense of the word on 100 a year. And 1 was in debt. It's all very well , but you can't expect n man of society to look at thcso things like a grubby man of business. I hnd expensive tnstes , nnd ought to have had Mr. Junp's money. Ho had nono. except for vulgarly showy furniture and old port. But I hnd vnri- ous ones , and , in fact , I was not going to stint myself in the cultivation of my refined tastes on account of mere sordid llgurcs. So , on the whole , I fancied my uncle's vulgar suggestions were worth considering. No doubt such a man as I could easily marry money , but it must bo a good round sum. And I must have a proper amount settled on myself , nnd unrestrained liberty of action. And nftor such a marriage , as there would bo no need to cultivate him any more , I should most decidedly drop the acquaintance of Mr. Jupp and his fam ily.Well Well , the programme fixed for the next day wan carried out completely. Uncle Jupp called and paid my rent nnd various other liabilities not , of course , like a gentleman , but grumbling in n most ill-bred way at the amount. Then ho wont with mo to Waterloo station and personally conducted mo to my car riage for Southampton. I believe ho would have liked to have put mo under the guard's charge , to BOO that I ar rived at Cowos. And as the train moved elf ho roared out he'd "written to Plum ! " I arrived at Cowesnnd an obese , short man , in n dreadful suit of tweed , asked mo if I was Jupp's ' nephew the moment 1 sot foot on the pier , adding , with a chuckle , that ho know mo bv my de scription whether this was compli mentary or not I did not care to decide. "So you're hero for a wifoV'lie began. "I never beat about the bush , and Tom Jupp and I know each other. I've got ono looked out for you. No time like the present. I'll call at your "otol In 'alf an hour and take you round to Mrs. Clogson's daughter's , got JC4,000 ( ) , and alnl so bad-looking by candle-light. " I got rid of this impetuous old man ns soon as I could , and dined at my hotel ; but before I could pottle down to dessert ho bolted in , wouldn't drink any claret , and said wo could got colloo at Violet Villa. So , much against my will. I ac companied Mr. Plum to a pretty house near the sea. The grounds were very well platted , the nouso apparently very comfortable. As wo walked up the little drive , Mr. Plum said , sotto voce : "Mrs , Clogson's doosid sharp ; don't want Ady to marry any ono under a baronet , and bho's always on the look out for follors without cash. Butnovcr you mind make play with your good \ooks. \ Ady's got a will of her own. Ana she's seen the world. Her father was consul at several places in the La van t , and his brother was in the cur rant line there and loft his nicco his fortune. Hero wo are. " lie rang , and in a minute or two a re markably neat and pretty servant smil ingly opened the door , as if Mr. Plum were a familiar visitor. Wo entered a pretty hall nnd then a charming draw ing room , where sat a portly lady with keen dark eyes which looked through very forbidding spectacles. Mr. Plum introduced me , and I received a by no means gushing reception ; but I was opposite a mirror and my own relloction consoled mo. Then Mr. Plum bogaiijas I thoughtwith rather forced bonhomie , to talk to the lady about the various local matters , carefully avoiding any mention of Miss Clogsonwho.it seemed , from an allusion casually made , was out at n garden party. By and by wo left , Mrs. Clegbon scrumming me in n most peculiar manner as I wished her pood- by. Outside , old Plum chuckled. "Sho guesses what you're after , " ho said ; "she can smell a rat any where clover woman. " I said nothing ; really these vulgar commercial people have n hypnotizing effect on me. As wo turned a corner we mot a young lady attended by a hobbledehoy in a cricket suit. This was , I supposed , Ada Clcgson. So it proved. "Ah , Miss Ady , " reared my compan ion , " 'ow are you ? Lot mo introduce Mr. Reginald Losterloy , the nephew of a very old chum o' mine. " She bowed abruptly , 1 with my usual graceful ease , nnd 1 took a good look at my future wifo. Good eyes , dark and keensallow complexionnose and lips too coarsehair ilully and black ; on the whole not good- lookingovon if she were passable by candlelight. Why cannot the heiresses bo pretty girls ? This is a problem worth studying. Wo turned and walked back , reentered - tored the house on her invitation , and found Mrs. Clogson nn iceberg. But her daughter was evidently mistress , nnd her mamma had to tolerate roe. I could see , for I am experienced in such matters , Ada was much impressed by my looks and manners. I narrated my London experiences and acquaintances for the most part truthfully. I glanced at my foreign tours nnd adventures wholly untruthfully. On the whole , I am of opinion I behaved with much greater tact than the prejudiced Uncle Jupp would ever have credited mo with. For a first Interview I , as Mr. Plum as sured me when I came out , nuido play considerably. And I certainly thought I deserved well of my uncle. The days pasaod on , nnd my intimacy at Violet villa became groat. That pretty ty servant , who I could BOO was as ap preciative as her young mistress of my good looks pity the pair couldn't ex change faces welcomed me with a smile ns if I were nn accredited inmate of the house. Ada was always glad to see mo. Only Mrs. Clegson remained nnthawcd. When I lool'cd at her I always felt she was likely , if any oneto bo responsible for the nH'air "being blundered , " us Uncle Jupp once or twice wrote mo brief notes to beware of. Another thing was , she had some sort of control , within limits , though I never could quite toll what , over her daughter's marriage. She took care never to allow a totc-a-toto between mo and Ada ; and she had all the letters taken up to her room in a pobt-bag in the morning , of which bag lic Kept the key , while nt all other hours she always watched for the post man , so that the opportunities of speak- in jr mv mind were always dllllcult. Well , thus things wont on , when there arrived on a visit a nephew ol Mrs. ClugBon , a clean-shaven , sallow , hawk-eyed man , who was in some big company ns general manager , nnd , I have no doubt , had "made his pile" out of shareholders. Anyhow , ho hadsomo money , so the old lady liked him , though I believe Ada only treated him as a cousin. Ho wab an ugly dog , with the woriit cut clothes I over saw , and a sharp , brusque , energetic way of mov ing which I hated. I always did ad- in fro the Neapolitan Jazzuroni more than any other class. But , to come to the point , ns Mr. Jupp in always bother ing mo to do , old Plum said he thought my chances wouldn't ' bo improved b > Nod Cutely being down at Cowes , anil advised mo to strike while the Iron wna 'ot. But wus it hotV I hnd never got so far ns the brink of a proposal nud I waa a very bad hand at naklng nny formal speech whatovor. Jesldes , how could n follow do it when , ho girl's mother always watched mo iko a cat ? It was all very well for old Tupp to write to mo ( of course old Plum mist go and interfere ) and uully mo for 'dawdling , " nnd ndjuro mo not to make mother blunder , but ho hadn't to do the ) uslncss I hnd. J woul there at nil , lmos nnd always found Cutely there. I tried to get the protty. mnid to give n loto to Ada , but Mrs. Clegson nlwnys same into the hull and the maid waa ov- dontly afraid of her , and so I hung ibout nnd wondered what was the best , hlng to do. Meanwhile it got expen sive , and the hotel bills were diminish- .ng ray money. At last I determined to write to Ada ; T had squeezed her hand , ho night before nnd she had not seemed affronted nay , I think she re turned the pressure so matters scorned ripe for declaring myself. I resolved to write , and by the aid of a "Letter writer , " which I gave a shilling for in Die town , I put a most moving nnd pa thetic declaration together. This done , [ debated how to got It into Ada's liands ; the post was impracticable , the ( irmly servant afraid. Just then a Imppy thought occurred. There was n Lnitehor's boy who rode a bay pony in a most funoua manner , whom 1 had fre quently mot in the drive , returning from calling for orders. Ho had al ways touched his forelock to mo , ind seemed abnormally sharp ; ho should bo my messenger. So I waylaid him the next morn ing and stopped him : I hold up half-a- crown , and explained that somehow or other i loft the details to him-r-ho waste to slip this note into Miss Ada's hands unsoon. With a joyous grip , as ho [ tockoted the half-crown , ho said ho'd llnd some way to do it to that nobody should see , and oh" ho rodo. I wontback to my hotel , wrote a letter to Uncle Jupp , saying how things were progress ing , and then wont for a sail , as I wished the day to elapse ere calling to know my fate. But there could bo llttio' doubt ; Ada had shown In various trilling ways her preference for mo , and , nftor nil , such a really handsome husband was a cheap ornament even at 40,000. My thoughts pleasantly dallied with the future , as I pictured a lite of artistic ottbo and luxury , and I triumphed in anticipation over Uncle Jupp and his brutal personalities. In this matter , at any rate , I would prove to him I know how to bring an affair to a successful conclusion. The evening arrived , ns lovely a sum mer's evening as over could bo wished for by a spooning pair , and I dressed myself most fascinatingly for Violet Villa. 1 went up there very leisurely , and on my way was joined by Mr. Plum , who congratulated mo much on the progress 1 had made , and on my clever ness in outwitting the "Old Duchess , " has called bore. "Your dodge with the butcher's boy proves you ain't such a fool as Jupp thinks you , " ' he said generously. "I am much obliged to you , " said I dryly. "Wellyou know I didn't myself think you sharp enough to got over Mother Clegson's wariness. She hates the idea of any feller , who's only got lardy-dardy ways and a good looking simper'anting after Ady , " rejoined Mr. Plum , while I inwardly resolved that , once the prize was secured , I would eliminate him nnd all my uncle's crow from my list of ac quaintances. At length we came in sight of Violet Villa , and Plum commenced some of his vulgar facetiiu , as comparing mo to n man in doubt whether ho was to bo "turned oil" or reprieved , etc. , etc. At last he condescended to listen to my re quest ( which was an additional proof , in his eyes , of my newly acquired" smart ness1' ) that ho would decoy the old lady into the conservatory , by preceding mo , and thus facilitating my momentous in terview with Ada. "A very good action"ho said , "andI really think this time your uncle can't but ' scored . " say you've a success. Thus conversing wo nearcdtho house , when Mr. Plum went on in front , and entering the gate crossed the lawn , and , with the familiarity of an old friend , entered by the drawing-room window. I gave him time enough to decoy the old girl into the conservatory and then marched up the drive , feeling pretty sure nil was successful. I rang tno bell. No response. I rang again , and the pretty maid opened it ; unusu ally smartly dressed and good-looking she seemed , and colored most vlyidlyon seeing mo. I looked at her admiringly , wishing that Miss Clegson was as pretty , and she looked silently and with borne agitation at me. And then suddenly she throw herself into my arms , exclaiming : "Yes , dar ling , yes ! That is the answer ! " "What the deuce do you moan ? " I said , struggling with my fair and some what weighty burden. "Why , the girl's gene mad ! " "Oh , no , dearest , I'm not mad , and I love you with all my heart ! " and she pressed a kiss on my lips that sounded like a pistol stiot. At this moment the drawingroom door opened and out came Mrs. Clogson , who stood potrilicd. "Weil , upon my word , sir ! " she said , with a spiteful triumph In her tone , "but it only justifies iny opinion of you all along , " "What the duce d'ye moan , young Lostorlyi1" said Mr. Plum. "This is anew now gnmo , and not fair to mo , you know. " And Miss Clogson said with bitter scorn : "And this is your choice , sir'i1" While Mr. Cutely eald nothing , but showed his tooth like a dentist's model. Meanwhile ray fair companion , still clinging to mo , looked , with pride in her port , dolinnco in her eye , on the as sembled company. Then I tried to ox- plain. And Miss Clcgson shrieked with horror at the mention of the butcher boy. Frantically freeing myself from the soubrette , I bald , looking daggers .at the old lady , "I nskod the butcher , there being no other way , to give my note to Miss Ada.1' "And I got it , dear , " murmured the pretty servant. "YouV" said I , "but i meant aren't you Mibs Ada ClcgsonV" I baid confused ly to tno young lady , when the old ono acidly answered : "My daughter's name , sir , is Ilnidoo , from her poor father's eastern post. Oh , had ho soon this day ! " ' "Yes , I told you' , " said the vulgar Plum , "Ady you honrd mo right enough. " "Well " the , perhaps , interposed grinning Cutely , "we'd bettor lenvo this gentleman nnd Miss Ada to settle matters , " and the quartet wont back into the drawintr room. Then wo two explained , I and Ada Nlbson which was the pretty servant's nnmo. Then , on my disavowing my letter , there was another scone , She had thrown over the grocer's young man Jor me ; I was a cruel man , and so on ; and sho'd trot my letter , and she'd too a lawyer , etc. , etc. And then , half frantic , I fled to my hotel "to drown my sorrows in the bowl. " Of course I hnd to expend eonio of my balance in compensating Ada. Of course Cutely proposed , nnd was ao- c.opted. Of course Uncle Jupp behaved HKU a mail hippopotamus , nnd furiously declared I could go on blundering through lifo in my own way. But , really , do you think it was my fault or Pluni'u , That hacking coug bean bo so quickly cured by Shiloh'u Cure.
