Miles Standish
With Illustrations by

"Are you so much offended, you will
not speak to me?".said she.
"Am 1 so much to blame, that yester
day, when you were pleading
Warmly the cause of another, my
heart, impulsive and wr.yward,
Pleaded your own, and spake out, for
getful perhaps of decorum?
Certainly* you can forgive me for
speaking so frankly, for saying
What I ought not to have said, yet
now 1 can never untmy 't
F"or there are moments In life, when
the heart is so full of emotion,
That if by chance it be shaken, or
watered the uarden of K(ien,
More like the
river
deserts of Havllah flowing.
Pilling the land with delight, and
memories sweet of the garden!"
"Ah, by these words, 1 can see," again
interrupted the maiden,
"How very little you prize me, or
for what 1 am saying.
When from the depths of my heart,
'n nain and with secret miseivir.e
"You Will Fcrgive, :-:opc."
Whatsoever it. touch•-, by suVJlelaws Frankly speaK to you. asKing .01
of its nature, I sympathy only and ktndness,
Lo! as he turned to depart, PrlsclJ'.a
Into its depths like a pebble
Drops some careless word, it overflows,
and its secret.
Spilt on the ground like water, can
never be.gathered together.
Yesterday I was shocked, when I
heard you speak of Miles Stand
ish,
Praising his virtues, transforming his
very defects into virtues,
Praising his courage and strength,
and even his fighting In Flanders,
As If by fighting alone you could win
the heart of, a woman,
Quite overlooking yourself and the
rest, in exalting your hero.
Therefore 1 spake as I did, by an ir
resistible impulse.
You will forgive me. 1 hope, for the
sake of the friendship between us,
Which is too true and too sacred to
be so easily broken!"
Thereupon answered John Alden, the
scholar, the friend of Miles Stand
ish:
"1 was not angry with you, with my
self alone 1 was angry,
Seeing how badly I managed the mat
ter I had In my keeping."
"No!" interrupted the maiden, with
answer prompt and decisive
"No you were angry with me for
speaking so frankly and freely.
Tt was wrong. I acknowledge for it
!s the fate of a woman
Long to be patient and silent to watt
like a ghost that is speechless,
Till some questioning voice dissolves
the spell of its silence.
Hence is the inner life of so many
suffering women
Sunless and silent and deep, like sub
terranean rivers
Running through caverns of darkness,
unheard, unseen, and unfruitful,
Chafing their channels of stone, with
endless and profitless murmurs."
Thereupon answered John Alden, the
young man, the lover of women:
"Heaven forbid it, Priscilla and truly
they seem to me always
More like the beautiful rivers that
Straightway you take up my words, j.
that, are plain and direct and in
earnest,
Turn them away from their meaning,
and answer with flattering
phrases.
This is not right, is not just, is not
true to the best That is in you
For 1 know and esteem you, and feel
that your nature is noble,
Lifting mine up to a higher, a more
ethereal level. I
Therefore I value your friendship, and
feel it perhaps the more keenly
If you say aught that Implies I am
only as one among many,
If you make use cf those common and
complimentary phrases
Most men think so fine, in dealing and
speaking with women,
But which women reject a8 insipid, If
not as insulting."
Mute and amazed was Alden and
listened and looked at Priscilla,
Thinking he never had seen her more
Casting a farewell look at, the glim
mering sail of the Mayflower,
Distant, tut still in sight, and sinking
below the horizon,
V.
Homeward together they walked, with
a strange, indefinite feeling,
That
all
the rest had departed and
left them
alone in the desert.
But, as
they
In
went through the SeJda
the
blessing and smile of the
sunshine.
Lighter grew their hearts, and Pris
cilla said very archly:
"Now that our terrible Captain has
gone in pursuit of the Indians,
Where he is happier far than he would
be
commanding a household,
You may speak boldly, and tell me
of
all
When
Euphrates, through
that happened between you,

returned last night, and
said how ungrateful you found
roe."
Homeward Together They Walked.
Thereupon answered John Alden, and
told her the whole of the story,—
Told her his own despair, and the
direful wrath of Miles Standish.
Whereat the maiden smiled, and said
between laughing and earnest,
"He is a little chimney, and heated
hot in a moment!"
Rut as he gently rebuked her, and
told her how much he had suf
fered,—
How he had even determined to sail
that day in the Mayflower,
And had remained for her sake, on
hearing the dangers that threat
ened,—
All her manner was changed, and she
said with a faltering accent,
"Truly I thank you for this: how good
you have been to me always!"
Thus as a pilgrim devout, who to
ward Jerusalem Journeys,
Taking three steps in advance, and
one reluctantly backward,
Urged by importunate zeal, and with
held by pangs of contrition
Slowly but steadily onward, receding
yet ever advancing,
Journeyed this Puritan youth to the
Holy Land of his longings,
Urged by the fervor of love, and with
held by remorseful misgivings.

fair, more divine in her beauty.
He who but yesterday pleaded so glib
ly the cause of another,
Stood there embarrassed and silent,
and seeking in vain for an answer,
So the maiden went on, and little di
vined or imagined
What was at work in his heart, that
made him so awkward and
speechless.
"Let us, then, be what we are, and
speak what we think, and in all
things
Keep ourselves loyal to truth, and the
sacred professions of friendship.
It is no secret I tell you, nor am I
ashamed to declare it:
I have liked to be with you, to see
you, to speak with you always.
So 1 was hurt at your words, and a
little affronted to hear you
Urge me to marry your friend, though
he were the Captain Miles Stand
ish.
For I must tell you the truth: much
more to me Js your friendship
Than all the love, he could give, were
be twice the hero you think hiza."
Then she extended her hand, and Al
den, who eagerly grasped it,
Felt all the wounds in his heart, that
were aching and bleeding so
sorely,
Healed by the touch of that hand, and
he said, with a voice full of feel
ing:
"Yes, we must ever be friends and
of all who offer you friendship
Let me be ever the first, the truest,
the nearest and dearest!"
