Hrs. Carlton s Bav window. Of a a . Have you noticed the elegant House that Frank Lewes la having built t asked or. John Carlton of her husband As he at smoking he Cigar after Tea. On hit Fli Street t be the mine. In t it a splendid Struc Ture ? i Admire those swelled Groota and the Bay window at the end it i strange what a social look Thuee windows give a room i Don t fancy them much returned the husband. Tin y Are Well enough perhaps for such a building As Hewes Why 1 thought Vou told Hannah col vile at her Huu of the other evening that hers we a pretty affair Sod i was thinking How much plea enter our parlor would be if we had Oue these last Worda Werea Oken rather timidly for she knew her uste and Choice had been consulted in purchasing and fitting up this Home of theirs not Aix months previous and at heart acc hardly justified herself in expecting a change so quo. Our room is to null there is no place for another window said he carelessly As he watched the smoke ascending from his Cigar and then putted and blew the vapor As if i Hing to drive away in the same manner the unpleasant subject from con 1 temptation and conversation. Hut Maggy was not so easily dissuaded from her plans she Law he was not ready As usual to approve her proposition yet although annoyed to be thus coolly regarded she endes ored to further her request. It a difficult however for her to proceed she was unused to la Ditieri nce from him and in her embarrassment the right words to Over come his Indiati Eruce refused their Aid. In her perplexity she sat drumming with her fingers on the cover of a Book which she held unopened preparatory to her Ordinary custom of Reading to John during Bis smok ing. At last she spoke for the silence was getting intolerable. It would be a Nice place for my plants mrs. Colville has quite a Little conservatory in one of her Bay windows but you would need aun for them in that care it should be of the Suruy Side of. The House yes certainly 1 suppose we could do that Why no Maggie the Sun Only enters the front windows and if we have one there it will protrude upon the Street be sides we have two in front already and theae should be closed to allow room Lor the Bay window i did t think of that it would t do really to keep them for the parlor would seem like a Glass House and she laughed at the picture which her fancy at that moment created of the front of her Beautiful j a Trier. Would the apartment to Light enough if they were closed and your Plant take All the Auna Hine at that window ? Yea of Yea it a fashionable to keep Auch it him rather dimly lighted i like a plenty of fresh air and Light i would t mind a Rhioa in Auch things mag by if 1 were you Well 1 Don to John there la be a much air and Light a before if i Don t occupy the window with the Plant perhaps 1 aha 11 not. It will be a Coay Little Nook for my work table and then the advantage of looking up Street and Down which it will afford i think i could Aee you when you turn the Corner without being obliged to run to of ten to the door to Aee if you Are coming i get to impatient waiting for your return Home from the store Thia remark decided the matter. Well Well have one answered John. Let a step into the parlor and make 4ur calculations a they entered Margaret lifted both Handa and gave one of her Low musical laugh to like a Bird a Gay Carol. 0, John Alakl Ahe a he looked around pleasantly to know the cause of her merriment a i for got the Mirror where in the world can we put it ? it hang in the wry place intended for the new window Over the piano answered her husband. And Ait gunning at Ina Elf and behold All the Grid Macee which the company make at my singing and playing that never la do and another laugh followed. We can t move these picture he Aid pointing to a set of landscape. Never that a the Only amiable spot for them they must have the Best Light of the room Why can t we do without the Mirror then ? o that must t be it Adda to the Aize of the room you know add to the aide to is that ? Why by reflection. Did you never no Tice How an apartment seem to extend in the Mirror it we now John turn to laugh and a inst uproarious shout he gave telling her she ought to apply for a Patent fur Thia method of enlarging apartment. Perhaps you can place it Over the mantelpiece a yes obliquely. That will do very Well. I la go into slab s to Morrow and the Bay window Ahall be commenced immediately the next evening at Tea time Margaret asked if he had forgotten to Call at Walsh s. No indeed Carlton replied but i find it will coat More than i expected i Don t know but we had better wait till warm1 weather perhaps by that time i Ahall be More Ablo to pay for it you know the Rule we made Hen we tint went to housekeeping i not to be broken 1 will not run in debt Tor Auy super duty which Thia May be styled jul a you please mid Hia wife. I know we can do without it As we have heretofore and to the subject dropped. In a few Daya Wash the Carpenter called to Aee if he ahoy old begin operation pre Paratory to getting the window. On receiving word that or. Carlton had charged Hia mind he urged in plea for the Job that he was out of employment and would be glad to do it to keep himself from idleness he waa in no Harry for payment that might re main until it a convenient for Hia employer to Weltle he did t eare if it waa a year before he had it. Now there mar Garet thought John will be doing a Good deed to get him to set the window immedi Otley. I have heard him aay that the Only Way Tolt Cep Walsh sober was to keep him Busy in consideration of this offer of the car Panter or. Car too revoked his decision and concluded thai tha Benefit be should thereby Confer upon him would atone for Craw Una the Rule to regard to contracting do Bra Ere Many Day the work Wii com menaced. Chapter ibc05d. What a going on at the Carlton a 7 said mrs. Colville a neighbor who lived on the opposite aide of the Street i should think they Wero tearing out the front of the House mrs. Carlton wanted a Bay window in her parlor returned her husband whom she address cd and so of course she must have it if the Thole House is torn Down to admit it. You ladies always manage to have your j Winsea granted not i i Don t half that i wish for re plied . Then you must spend your time the chief part of it in regrets and desires according to what you receive said he Joc Osely. However to added you Are not disposed to unreasonableness in your wishes Seldom dissatisfied with your lot i la allow. Indeed there Are not Many who Havo Lens cause for disco Newt than i answered mrs. Colville Andl should be very ungrateful to deny it and in t it to with our neighbor ? i think you have said Ahe was to happiest Little woman alive so Ahe a Ahoia always satisfied every thing pleases her every thing goes smoothly with her and Thia idea of the Bay window a a mystery to me 1 Don t understand Why they Are spoiling their Beautiful parlor for the Aake of introducing one of Thomac new. Fashioned concerns of because it s the fashion. That s the Only reason you May depend Tiow absurd Ahe in t such a weak minded creature As to put her husband to Auch an expense for Sutti a frivolous pretext setting aside the extravagant waste of tearing up the Walls and Frains work of a Boule so nearly new we have one you know Well it was hero when we came. 1 should never have thought of altering for the Aake of that neither would you have indulged me in the whim if i Hail wished it. Besides How foolish the Cartons will look jutting out so into the Street it s not a proper place for a Bay window i wonder they did not choose the end of Tho House for its situation suppose you ask them said or. C., ironically. Come i think to have Dis cussed our neighbors affairs Long enough. Let a take some other subject hut mrs. Colville was not so ready to turn away from her Friend Maggy s Bay window Tho Mere fact that she accidentally possessed a room lighted by Otiis new style of window had she cared created jealousy Between that Friend and herself. At any rate it Muat be envy which could reconcile her to the demolition of so much 1 is duty and symmetry As belonged to her dwelling both outwardly and inwardly. It a decidedly very bad taste in them to to Dia Figuro the front of their House it will not be at All in keeping with the Reat of it she said still surveying the premises oppo site. 0, replied her husband fashion recon Ciles us to almost anything fashion can make the ugliest appear Beautiful they will be to exposed to the Gazo of passent by Maggy cannot realize How bad it will seem perhaps she a not so fond of retirement As you Are Oahe is very modest and a native about attracting observation. It must have been a sudden fancy that augg Eatch Thia change which they will certainly regret As the work progressed mrs. Colville s disapprobation increased. Mrs. Carlton was much younger than she and inexperienced in the ways of the world. She had always preferred to be guided by others even in matters of taste and Ahe doubted not that her Good Friend Hannah As she called mrs. C., of Whoso Superior judgement she had often availed herself would to pleased to see she had copied her in getting a Bay. Window for her parlor. She waa therefore totally unprepared for the hauteur with which she met her request for her adv inc in getting a new carpet which this addition to the room Ahe found would Render or Casary. Hannah Colville a evidently piqued at our improvement said Maggy to John an she returned from her neighbors. 1 declare now i Veas Good a right to be in the fashion As Ahe has. She can t Bear the thought of our being equal with her a Long As i was willing to say that Ahe and everything that Belonga to her is Superior to everybody s else Ahe was Friendly enough i guess i Shan t trouble her with my company very soon again 0, it can t be she a too High minded for such notions answered her husband perhaps she had been vexed before you went in no i think not Ahe was talking Picas y when i entered and changed her tone and look immediately on greeting me. I Don t care though 1 can be As unpleasant and Dis obliging a Ahe any Day come come Maggy Don t be childish May be Ahe Thinka you Are too dependent upon her for advice at any rate you can suit yourself now if you please 1 really Don t know what i should like John. What should you prefer you shal1 choose the carpet 1 ? dear me 1 have no Choice in such thing whatever you like pleases me and he started off to the Market. 1 declare i Don t know what i should pre Fer said Maggy to herself a he closed the Street door. Everybody has admired this and really 1 Wiah it could remain but it can to it will be too Small. There i la get one an near like it a Poa Aible and Ahe sat studying its Colon and figure in order to be guided thereby in the Purchase of the new one. With the making and pacing of thir he waa quite Busy for Louie Daya and Happy at the Prospect which the window of lorded indulged herself olt a with looking up and Down the Street. Her husband waa very uncomfortable at the Prospect which it Jieu Timur ii afforded aim he Lead not calculated upon further expense than the letting of the window but after the labor of the Carpen Ter wag completed he Law plainly that painting Muat be done and accordingly gave Ordeta Tor a new coat on the entire front of the Houa. Thia annoyed him exceedingly for it amounted to a heavy Bill and be knew those he employed would expect prompt payment. Several note in the Way of Hia Lainca were Juat on the Point of becoming due heretofore he bad anticipated theae demand and waa always ready to meet them now there waa a great Prea Aure in financial Mattery he found it impossible to collect Lua dui a in Auina sufficient to admit of sparing a Dollar for anything except Hia beam eat and a often a he Law Hia wife at the Bay window with her Happy Amile to hit approach he thought of the unpaid car Penter and Painter. Chapter third. Mra. Colville had been great / Maunder stood by her neighbor in the affair of the carpet neither Pride nor Dia affection led her to appear Cool and Distant in that inter i View. She waa Well aware that John Carl ton had nothing but Hia by Eineke to depend upon for the support of himself and wife and therefore could not approve of their extravagance in Thia alteration. The window waa enough to add to their expensive style of living Ahe thought full enough for Auch a Young Man to be hampered with without adding a costly carpet to the Bill which last Ahe Folt persuaded waa Only considered next Mary through Maggy a inordinate vanity a trait which in spite of her modesty held quite a Tonapi Fuoua place in her Char i Acter. The cold Neca thua commenced Margaret took no Paina to overcome Ahe believed Hannah Lynde for in their familiarity Ahe had Learned to Call her by her Maiden name to to actuated by Pride and in All the kind new Ahe had shown her. Now Ahe would let her Aee Aho waa perfectly in dependent of her aaa Latance Ahe would not be the Firat to renew their acquaintance to Weeka Paa aed before they again met. Finally mra. Colville fearing Paerio Yarup Ture Between Maggy and herself stepped Over 10 pa8 Wie Mari Iurii an raw was she warm in her greeting and Lively in manner the distance Between Vliem seemed to increase. She concluded that the safer Way to proceed in the present state of affairs was to make no allusion to the change and to say As Little As possible of the new arrangements in the parlor. Retreating is far As she could from the Bay window she tried to talk on indifferent topics and mag by construing this studied neglect of her improvements As she had the sober recep Tion which she gave when about getting her carpet measured her words and modulated her tones accordingly at last she unceremoniously left her visitor alone a Long time while she went to attend upon some Anim portent affair ill the Kitchen. Indignant at such in courteous treatment mrs. Colville sat quietly but a few minutes 1 have a great mind to leave As abruptly As she wins said she to herself no on the whole i think i la stay just to say a few words something that will set her think ing i Don t believe her Friendship is Worth the trouble of keeping though so proud As she is of this new finery and her Hus band harassed to death to meet Bis payments. She shall know my opinion of this foolish Ness before i go i will not mince the mat Ter at All i shall speak pretty plainly a and when Margaret returned she Rose say ing is she adjusted her Bonnet preparatory to leaving 1 miss your Mirror mrs. Carl Tho Mirror is opposite Hannah was an were with Groat dignity. I Tec but Tho room a to changed it Doea n t seem at All natural i never could boar change 1 see nothing disagreeable in the change Here waa the Mnawer. Somehow the room Haa Latita quiet look Eon seem to Liao Tho Bustle of the Street forc you All the time i am alone to much i enjoy the View of out door activity 1 think it looks hardly decorous for a lady to to to mixed up with it As your Bay window Accra to imply what do you mean by that remark t i mean to speak directly to the Point that you might about a Well Tako your chair and your sowing out to Tho sidewalk a to occupy Tho window Hannah Lynde you Tako too much upon yourself i aug not to be dictated to by you retorted Maggy angrily. Well i guest you will wish that your a parlor had remained untouched be. No what would you insinuate mrs. Col Villi your language is very harsh Only that a Truo wife always consults her husband s interests in Sll her plans and with these words she hastily departed. Long did Margaret Colton Ponder upon that remark she Felt that something Lay hidden beneath Tho smooth aphorism and she went Over Tho recollection of her Inar ried life dwelling minutely upon the history of this new alteration he Firat and Tho Only important plan that bad been fully carried out by her direction. There is surely nothing deserving censure Here she thought my window is handsomer than hers and that is Why she treat to thus. Still feeling very unhappy Ahe Aal in the window awaiting John s return. A very uncomfortable afternoon had this been to or. Carlton. Business was duller than Ever before to second Day of Grace for the payment of his note of a targe amount was Fust drawing to a close and to lacked some hundreds of Ila value his Bank Era had refused to loan and declared their inability to l to the Money at any rate again collectors were sent out and again they returned with trifling sums. Revolving various plans for obtaining the remain Der on the Morrow discouraged almost despairing to started for Home. Asho stepped upon the pavement he encountered Wal a Tho Carpenter who with a Wolful count Nanco and Aad voice begged that he would pay Bun. 1 thought that you would t expect pay. Mint Lor amnio time yet answered Carlton. 1 know 1 told you so air but Ray wife a sick and i Haven t earned a cent Cinco then All that 1 have saved Haa been spent for food now we have nothing to eat and my credit a Long since gone at the shops they will not let me have anything now without Money and he whined piteously As he Laid hold of Carlton s Arm to de Tain him. You Ahall not suffer Walsh but How am i to know if 1 give you Money that it a not agent for liquor.1 go Home with me and Aak Ziy wife air Abe will Tell you that i have not la Ted a drop of Strong drink for Over two months ill believe you without her word. Come into the store you Ahall have some thing i wish i could pay you in full but it a impossible and taking s ban Bill therefrom handed it to him. Thank you sir said the poor Carpenter Thia will last some time it Yoa have any More jobs i la be glad to do pm and ran off to Bis miserable abode. Cailton went to his desk to take in entry of the Money just paid Zalab and before this was done a person came Bast Ling in to serve s writ upon him for the nonpayment of the painters Bill. Early in the Day they bad sent in their account to Settle embarrassed by the Low state of his funds be had impatiently refused and now i in surer they had peremptorily demanded i their does. Mortified is such turn to Bis i affairs which he considered insulting treat ment be counted out the turn end seat the Man on his Way rejoicing. These two de mands satisfied had made s Large deficit in that which he had appropriated for the use of the Morrow and with Tui greater Senzi Ety than when be at first set oat for Home he onco More wended his weary Way strip Vine 10 up a Little cheerfulness Ere be reached its threshold. As he Drew near the House he saw the slight figure of his wife at her accustomed Post of watching. Really Ahe Nakea quite a pretty tableau to said half aloud but How much the room is exposed to pub Lic gaze and Ahe too. It appears rather bold to step out into the Street with one Par Lori declare i Wii i the House stood a it waa before i should Hare been Patred a great Deal of Unea Aeneas if it had not been changed Heigh to and be Orang up the Steps. Tho next moment Maggy was a abating him to remove his overcoat and inquiring the cause of Hia tardiness. Scarcely designing to reply he began to speak of her exposure at the window. I would keep the blinds generally closed if i were you mag Vou Are very conspicuous when near the Bay window and you had better find a new place or your Why John what Miskei you so fault finding to night 1 suppose i can do my owing in to dining room or Tho Kitchen if you wish but a to closing All the Blind in my Bay window i Don t think i Hall the parlor would be very unpleasant without i Lugue on the fashion i Wiah to had the Plain windows Here again i dislike the very name of Thia Bay window How irritable you Are if you know How much trouble i have had in getting the Money to pay Lor Thia nonae Naicam thing you would t wonder that i am irritable. 1 thought there would to no hurry in settling for it but everybody seems determined to get All Thero la due them. 1 should have had enough to tax my ingenuity to Tho utmost to meet Tho de Luanda of my business without this to vex me alter this sober speech Maggy dared not open her lips the evening passed in is Lenco it was the gloomiest time Sho had known Cinco her Marrage and with a heavy heart she closed the window Blinda and re moved her Little table to a Distant Corner. The next morning she relented a if to assert her authority without his dictation Tho blinds were again open and the stand in front of Tho window ller Lovo of Dis play had lately incr owed Ahe did not con aider it boldness but enjoyed the Admir ing glances that were cast upon her As she sat there sewing and was unwilling to give up Thia pleasure. Yet indignant beyond Mesuro was she when Tola at noon by her husband that aspersions had been cart upon her character in consequence of her sitting there. A request which to had made his neighbor Colville in regard to Hia monetary difficult Ioa had been cheer fully granted by that gentleman that morn ing and he afterwards in friendliness in formed him of the reports circulating in regard to her familiarity with Young clerk who daily passed to had Hin self boasted of Hia acquaintance with her. Sho acknowledged that the person in question an entire stranger habit Sully bowed a to went by but the compliment Ahe never returned usually keeping her eyes upon her work if to were approaching. Never had Aho by look or word overstepped Tho Bounds of propriety while at the window. Well said John i believe you mag by but you know we should avoid even the appearance of Ovil. I woe too Hasty in granting this Folly and am much Moro Lamable for allowing you in your thoughtlessness thou you Aro for childishly seek ing the notice of the multitude i shall take Caro How i indulge your whims for the future. What Are you doing with that table lie added seeing her resolutely remove it from Tho window. It is going to its old place in the Cor Ner. \ want you to fasten Tho blinds securely nobody but you will Ever open them again Many As hey pass or. Carlton1 House wonder Why its occupants do not enjoy its pleasant Bay window. Mrs. Colvillo is not of these she appreciates the determination which has shut out Tho gaze of the world and a a firmer Friend to mag by than in Tho months that preceded this change. And Margaret Carlton As night Attar night her husband s anxious brow betokened the trials of the Day vainly wished that her own foolish Pride had not added to them and thankful waa Aho at last to hear Hin aay that he had succeeded in paying every demand. To be Relief cd from debt he Felt Jike Tho captive restored to Freedom and onco Moro his merry songs and Maggy s musical laugh enlivened Tho Long Winter evening. Tie Brown silk dress.
