When Elizabeth Gray returned to Elm Wood after a year spent with an Uncle in a Distant City she found few changes in the quiet Village. The morn ing after her arrival she Lay contentedly in roofed Little room that had been hers since childhood and listened to the familiar music of Ham mer and saw from the Distant ship Yards. Lust then Wood smoke reminded her that her Mother was getting break fast in the Kitchen and with a pricking of remorse at her sloth ulness Eliza Beth arose and dressed. "1 thought the waffles would arouse you Bess smiled her Mother As the girl entered the Kitchen flushed and sparkling. Here is the first Batch take them in and begin your break fast. I Mother mine scolded Elizabeth leading the Rosy cheeked plump Little woman into the dining room. Sit right Down and eat breakfast with dad. I shall Cook waffles for both of you. Not a word she smiled Back at the two Loving faces As she passed to and fro from Kitchen a to dining room Piini stering to their wants. We can t expect to keep her with us always sighed her Mother. This last year without her has Hown me How dreary it will be for us when somebody takes her by somebody i suppose you mean Norman boomed or. Gray s deep voice. I Don t know As there s an other Man in Elmwood to say nothing of the outside world that i d rather give my Little Bess to than Norman Ryder. Perhaps she has met some body else in the City you can t Tell and Norman s Only country bred. Bess probably met some Fine Dandi fied chaps in new i d rather it would be Norman insisted mrs. Gray with a Little fright ened flutter in her voice that went straight to Elizabeth s heart i could t Bear to have Bess marry any body from the City. We might not see her from one year s end to the Elizabeth hastened into the dining room with a plate of waffles scorched to a Crisp and her fair face flushed and agitated. Heard every word you said she confessed Between tears and laugh ter. Dears i m not going to marry View Tot Vrtnar me away from or. Gray squeezed the Little hand she had Laid in his Broad Palm and looked quizzically into her Blue eyes. How about anybody in Elmwood Bess he asked. I Don t want to marry anybody flashed Elizabeth tearfully. I want to stay right Here All my ? that evening Norman Ryder drove Over to see Elizabeth Gray and such is the Contra riness of womankind that he who had always found favor in her eyes now appeared to be awkward and provincial in manner and speech As compared to the showy youths she had met when visiting her Uncle Al though he was bigger and broader and handsomer than any of the City bred youths almost the first words he uttered seemed to place him in a differ ent class. So you knew i had returned nor Man she asked. Withdrawing her hands from his close grasp. Yes yes he had cried delightedly and it was that characteristic double affirmative uttered with a slight twang that Drew a thin veil of discord be tween them. There was something about the expression that smacked strongly of the rustic that with the twang and the qually favored double negative. No no seemed to place Norman Ryder among the banners and dairymen who formed the Community about Elmwood. Elizabeth hated herself for shudder ing every time Norman spoke with a twang but she could t help it. She was angry with him for speaking so ber father did not nor did any of their neighbors. It was carelessness on Norman s part and it grated on her sensibilities. I thought perhaps you d answer my letters he said rather ruefully As he Drew his chair near the glowing stove but i expect you were pretty Busy studying your music. I m going to ask you to play some of your Clas Sical pieces for me by and of course i will said Elizabeth. I did t write to anybody Here except father and Mother and they said she paused with sudden confusion. I they said i came Over Here most every night while you were gone he grinned happily. They let me read your letters and that was next Best to getting pm i did t Promise you i d write protested Elizabeth rather stiffly. No. No Jie uttered quickly exonerating her from blame. But but i thought you might answer one of pm. And so i kept on i was glad to hear from you. And i suppose it was mean of me never to answer any of them but did Mother give you the messages i sent yes yes and that was something a he looked so Happy and so handsome that Elizabeth had to Harden her heart against the magic of his dark eyes. Every time that nasal twang smote on her ear she winced and after awhile she grew to counting the times he said yes yes and no no if he would Only break himself of using those expressions. But of course he could not know How they sounded. Everybody in Elmwood used them except a few persons like the minister and the. Doctor and lawyer and her own father. Outsiders laughed and called it part of the dialect of Busom county. When Elizabeth asked him u be i should p Lay for him Norman sa4 yes. Yes and when she asked i he had had enough music he cried hastily no no until her nerve were All a jangle. At last he arose to go and there was a very tender look in his Down Bent eyes As he fingered his hat. There was something i wanted today to you Bess. I wonder if i bet ter say it Tiow i guess you know what it he looked steadily at her. Elizabeth did not hesitate. She was angry with him for his rustic ways and provoked at herself because she was too narrow minded to Overlook them. "1 Don t believe you better say it she said deliberately her eyes on the Small shoe that tapped the carpet. ? his face whitened underneath the Bronze and there was a stricken look in his eyes. "1 hardly dared to Hope much since i heard you were coming Home but before you went away he choked a Little and asked her a question will you Tell me Why Bess she looked up at him with a strange hardness in her heart. Do you really want me to Tell you she asked. Yes yes he said eagerly. That s it Norman Ryder she flashed. It s your Buffum county twang and your everlasting yes yes and nor no and you know better tool he stared at her bewildered for a moment and As the import of her words struck Home he reddened deeply and All the tenderness fled from his eyes. So that s the reason he said Gra tingly. Well Bess there s no Chance for me then because if you Don t love me enough to Overlook amere habit of speech you Don t love me As much As 1 want you to. I sup pose i Don t Shine very brightly com pared with the City Fellows you be met but i be loved you better than anybody else in the world Ever he crammed on his hat and without an other word left the House. J2lizabeth stood alone in the parlor her eyes fixed in a frightened stare on the closed door her heart pointing in unison with Norman s departing Steps on the Crisp Snow. It was Bright Moonlight and scores of Young people were coasting Down the Steep Hill that ran past the Grays Home. Elizabeth heard their shouts of laughter and the frequent warning cry of Road the Gate crashed into place behind Norman s impatient swing. There was the Roar of a coming bobsled a Muf fled thud and then shouts of distress. Elizabeth reached the front Gate at the same time her father and Mother hurried to the same place drawn by the sounds of an Accident somebody had been run Down by the bobsled somebody who Lay a dark motionless figure against the whiteness of the Snow. Around his head the Snow was stained a Crimson that wid ened and widened horribly. It was Norman Ryder and when the Snow. Bring him into my House commanded or. Gray leading the Way and so they carried him across the Doorstep which he had left in anger a few moments before and bore him up stairs to the front chamber. A doctor was summoned and while mrs. Gray prepared bandages and other necessaries her husband built a roaring fire in the fireplace and Eliza Beth sat cold and numb beside that still form on the bed. Her hands Rig idly held in place the bag of ice her Mother Laid on his forehead above the Bandage that covered the deep Cut her eyes were fixed on the White set features and closed lids and the finely chiselled lips which might part no More to utter the homely dialect of the country which she had despised and ridiculed. She could not weep. She could Only sit there a miserable heartbroken Little figure hating herself for her censorious words. The doctor came and waved her aside. For an hour he worked Over the Young Man while Elizabeth sat in her own room breathless and despair ing. Then at last she heard him go ing away and instantly she was at the door of Norman s room. Her Mother smilingly beckoned her within and left them alone together. Norman looking very Pale his head swathed in bandages did not see her come in. For a moment she stood there looking Down at him with her heart in her eyes. Suddenly he looked up at her Small ing whimsically in the old Way As he had been used to do before she told him the unpleasant truths. had looked that Way when he was a boy growing up and she was a Little girl trotting to school beside him. Doctor says i la be All right in a Day or so he smiled. But i la have to keep still. You Don t mind my be ing Here in your House do you Bess no no she cried dropping unconsciously into the vernacular of Buffum county. She slipped to her Knees be Side the bed and leaned her sunny head against his shoulder. Norman quivered and then Laid on hand on her head. Of Bess you Don t mean it do you love me he whispered. I yes. Yes sobbed Elizabeth. An expense regardless of pleasure."?Boston transcript. The Man eaters.
