Quot once and for All Elsie i can not Joyce Lonsdale put Down his cup not Vei a gently and glanced at his wife As he made the above remark. They were seated in their cozy Little breakfast room surrounded by All the comforts of a charming and Beautiful Home. Elsie returned his glance with a decided frown on her pretty face As she threw the letter she had been Reading Down on the table. Quot it s really too provoking Royce. You a an not spare the time to go anywhere. One would think we had been married six years instead of six months. Violet writes they expect to have a Lovely time. Ned in t afraid to leave his business. Of i want to go so much i am sure you could arrange it if you were half a mind Elsie paused for breath and waited expectantly for a reply but received none. Koyce evidently considered the subject settled and proceeded to finish his breakfast with unimpaired appetite. Passing do his cup for a second cup of Coffee he discovered his wife s eyes filled with tears and that she was eating Little or nothing. Quot do be reasonable Lloyce spoke rather impatiently. Quot i would be very glad to take you if it were possible for me to it away this week. But it really is As i a Aid before quite after saying this Koyce left the table and Pat his aim affectionately around his wife. But Elsie was in no mood for caresses and snatching her hands away from him she suddenly left the room with that inevitable Slang of the door that is absolutely necessary when one is thoroughly angry. Elsie when she quarrelled with any one a he loved was bound to cry so the next ten minutes were spent in tears. Royce feeling very Ang with everything in general and his wife in particular snatched up his hat and departed for his office. After the lapse of half an hour Elsie Felt thoroughly ashamed of herself and wished she had not let her temper get the upper hand of her that she had not said to Many unkind things to her husband. At that instant the Little French clock chimed out 8 o clock and Elsie sprang to her feet hastily opened the door and hurried toward the breakfast room. Eight o clock and Royce invariably left the House for the office at Quarter of 8, and now because she had Given Way to her temper he would of course be late. The door stood ajar. Elsie pushed it open and glanced in expecting to see Royce sitting there in a dejected attitude. But instead the room was empty. Gone Elsie could not realize it. Indeed she would not believe it. But a careful search of the House proved that he was really gone. And without kissing her Good by. The first time he had failed to do so since their marriage. What should she do Elsie was undecided. The Low j Rench window opened on to a veranda that ran entirely around the House and As it stood invitingly open she obeyed a sudden impulse and went out. As she did so something White caught her a yes a letter laying on the Steps that left a Down to the Little Garden where the roses , and i Imson sent up their Sweet frag Ance. Elsie picked it up her thoughts too Busy with the events of the morning to wonder Why it was there or who could have dropped it turning it carelessly Over in her hand her Eye caught her husband s name. With trembling hands she opened it out and read the following Quot sept. 15th, 1887. Quot Friend Royce yours received and i gladly undertake your commission. I am surprised at what you wrote. I will do my Best for you. I do not see the lady Ivery often. The whole affair is quite romantic. I can remember the time when every one Here expected you would marry her. And you surprised every one by doing nothing of the sort. She always appears sad of late and now you have told me the reason i pity her. If she consents to forget and forgive i myself will take a trip into London this week and see her safely to your office. Sincerely yours Quot Kent Elsie read it through to the end. Her Beart seemed to stand still. She crushed the paper in her tightly clenched hand and trembled with excitement. Who was this Rirl her husband was so interested in this then was the reason he could not leave his business. She understood it All now. What should she do her Beart ached As Young hearts Only a an ache. Again she read the letter standing there in the Broad veranda the sunlight falling on her slim girlish figure in its Pale Blue morning dress glinting like Silver from her nut Brown hair and falling i tingly on the Sweet Pale face Bent Over that fatal letter. She could never be Happy again. Once More she turned her attention to the letter and read it through for the third time. Then she quickly entered the House and changing her pretty morning dress for a dark Street suit was soon walking rapidly in tie direction of her husband s office. Let us now follow Royce. Before he had reached his office he Felt sorry he bad left Home without bidding Elsie Good by. He blamed himself for All the trouble. If be had Only explained to her Why be could not leave at this particular time everything would have been All right. But he wanted to wait until the whole affair was settled 1 before he told her. Quot never mind Quot he i said to himself Quot i will go Home Early to dinner and make it All up. Quot then his attention was attracted by a i letter on his desk j Quot from Kent Quot he exclaimed As he quickly read it through j then taking up Bis pen he hastily wrote the following note i Quot my dear Little wife forgive me i for going away without my Good by kiss. I la be Home Early to dinner. Got some Good news for Youl you May write Violet that we will join the party. Will explain More fully when i see Vou. Your Loving calling the office boy he sent him off with the note just As the door opened to admit a gentleman who grasped Royce s outstretched hand As though he would never let it go. Quot Royce old Friend How can i thank you for All you have done for me Quot Quot by being True to yourself in the future Arthur Quot replied Lloyce earnestly. Arthur Gwendon Sank Down into a chair and rested his head on his hand. Quot what of Millie Tell me about my wife Royce. Do you really think it possible she can forgive me and Quot that once More i shall clasp her to my heart and we begin a new life together Quot Quot yes Arthur your wife has forgiven you and is even now on her Way Here. I received a letter from an old Friend of mine Kent Hallett this morning. She is in his care and will soon be Here. Hark Quot As the sound of Carriage wheels sounded on the hard pavement then stopped suddenly. Quot remain Here Arthur you shall see her saying this Royce left the room and met a lady and gentleman just entering the building. Millie Gwendon put aside her veil As she entered the Hall and held out both her hands. Quot Royce kind Friend Quot was All she could say. Kent Hallett As he opened the outside door leading into the big Hall saw Royce coming Forward to meet them so he did not enter with Millie but let her meet Royce alone while he remained standing on the Marble Steps just at the Entrance. Almost instantly. His attention was attracted by a lady hurrying toward him from the opposite Side of the Street. She did not glance at him however but pushed the heavy door open and entered. As she passed by him Kent caught a glimpse of a pair of big Brown eyes and the sweetest at the same time the maddest face he had Ever seen. It was Elsie Lonsdale and she entered just As Millie Wendon had Given both her hands to Royce. And she heard Royce say Quot from now on Millie i Hope your life will be a happier Elsie waited to hear no More. She to turned and almost flew out of the building with so much haste in fact that she ran against Kent Hallett and nearly caused him to lose his balance and go Down the Steps too quickly for Comfort. Recovering himself he was not a Little surprised to see the lady who had entered a minute before leaving in such desperate haste and evident confusion. Again the door opened and Royce came out. Shaking hands with Kent he Hap a opened to glance Down the Street. There not a Block away walking very rapidly was the familiar figure of his wife. Quot excuse me a minute Kent Quot he said hurriedly Quot there goes my wife and i want to speak to her. Quot Quot your wife Quot exclaimed Kent Hallett in Surprise then he told Royce How the lady now fast disappearing in the distance had entered the door and came out again in such desperate haste. Royce waited to hear no More but walked rapidly Down the Street in the direction Elsi had taken As he came in sight of Bis Home he caught a glimpse of Elsie s dress As the door closed behind her. Hurrying Forward he entered and soon stood at the door of their room. He hesitated Only an instant then softly opened the door. Elsie s hat Lay on the floor and Elsie Hei self face Down upon the bed crying As though her heart would break. Quot of Royce my husband How could you deceive me when 1 loved you so dearly Quot in an instant Royce had her in Hie arms and was raining kisses on her neck and tangled Brown hair. Her face was turned away from him. Quot Elsie my Darling Little wife do not cry so. I have never deceived it was soon explained. Royce told Eisie the whole truth con earning Arthur Gwendon and his wife. I shall not go into details Here because for both their spikes it is Best forgotten and we have every reason to believe that their future life will be a happier one. Elsie s tears were soon turned to Happy smiles and with a Little exclamation of Joy she nestled against her husband and hide her burning face. Quot my Darling Quot he murmured and his hand caressed her Wavy Brown hair with the most tender of lingering touches while Elsie whispered Quot i will never doubt you again my husband never s letter. By Leffle Forbush Hanaford. It was a letter that caused All the trouble a Little inoffensive looking epistle and yet it nearly drove the Man who Frimd it mad with misery and pain. It read As follow is my Deak Cha Klies you Cau not imagine How much 1 would like to see you. 1 can not Bear to think How far apart we Are. You said when i was married i would forget you. But this letter will prove How mistaken you Are for i love you As much As Ever. Quot distance makes the heart grow fonder Quot you know 1 will write you a Long letter soon. I have much to Tell you but Niy time is limited to Day. Do write soon and Tell me How much you miss me. Yours with love Ikene Hunter de8mo?st. It was summer time. The Golden Sunshine poured in through open window the breezes stirred the grass and the Sweet perfume from the Flowers was wafted into the room. The Man with the letter in his hand stood As if turned to Stone trying to realize what he had just read. There was his wife s name in full Quot Irene Hunter what could it mean who was Charlie what a fool he was to think there was such a thing As perfect happiness in Unis world. He remembers Baing read in a paper that very Day yes scarce two hours ago a a few lines that at the time caused quite a Little discussion. The lines come Back to him now with a new meaning Quot do not flatter yourselves with Hopes of perfect happiness there is no such thing in this life. Quot he remembered Reading it aloud and some one spoke no and said Quot exactly my sentiments Quot and How indignant he had Felt As he made reply. Me remembered glancing at his wife and meeting her fond look of love. He was convinced there was Quot perfect happiness Quot in this life and confident that he could speak from experience and now hark what was that his wife s voice calling him. Laying the letter Down on the desk As he had found it he took from the Back of a chair a Little Black silk and lace affair called a Quot wrap Quot and stepped quickly through the Low French window leading on to a veranda. In a very few minutes he had descended the Steps and joined a party of ladies and gentlemen on the Lawn. Quot hello Phil your wife has just gone into the House to look for you. She thought perhaps you could not find her wrap Here she comes Philip Desmond glanced at his wife As she approached. How pretty she looked in that soft dress of Crimson Cashmere she had the sweetest face imaginable lit up by a pair of soft Blue eyes that went straight to your heart every time they rested upon you and Beautiful rippling hair shining in the sunlight like Gold. Quot it is very easy for a Man to love her thought Philip As he folded the wrap around her slender form. Should he Tell her what he had read no not yet. He would wait and watch her closely if she mailed the letter there would be an answer and he must see that find out the Man s name and then he was not sure what he would do then but for the present he would wait. A it six weeks ago Philip Desmont and Irene Hunter were married in the Little parlor at Irene s Home. Under a Beautiful Floral Bell composed entirely of rosebuds they were pronounced Man and wife and received the Hearty congratulations of their Many friends. Irene loved her husband As Only such affectionate natures can love. She was Only Nineteen and Philip thirty two. Immediately after they were married Philip had taken his Bride to their future Home some three him red Miles Distant and there proudly introduced her to his friends. Irene had always appeared perfectly Happy she was Young naturally joyous in disposition and a general favorite with All who knew her. There were several Young married people living near them and they All contrived to make the summer Irene s first among them pass this afternoon they had arranged for a game of Tennis and As Philip s Lawn afforded the Best Tennis court they had met there for the purpose. After the first game Philip had gone into the House for his wife s wrap As she Felt slightly Chilly after so much violent exertion. Then it was that he had discovered the letter that seemed destined to ruin All his happiness. The smile of Gayety is often assumed while the heart May ache within. And it was so in Philip s Case. He managed to play through a game of Tennis very creditably. But he Felt relieved when to an end and time for their friends to depart. The next morning Philip was up Long before Irene was awake. He could not sleep and decided a walk before breakfast would do him Good. Thus it happened that he entered the breakfast room before Irene. He paced the floor impatiently until he heard her step on the stairs. Then the door opened and Irene entered. She was dressed in a charming morning Robe of delicate Blue and i Philip thought she had never looked so innocent and Sweet before. His h6ait ached As he folded her in his arms and kissed her again and again. Quot of Irene my Darling say you love Quot love you Why Philip you know i love you that i never knew what it was to love until i met Quot Are you Stire you never loved any other Man Irene Quot Quot sure Philip How strangely you talk. Of course i am after they had finished breakfast Philip instead of going at once to his office As was usually his custom lingered by the window gazing out in an abstracted manner. Irene had always been in the habit of giving him her letters to mail and this morning she bad not mentioned hav intr any. As Philip stood looking out of the window he was thinking of this. At last taking up his hat he said carelessly. Quot any letters to mail this morning Irene Quot Quot to his Surprise Irene jumped to her feet exclaiming Quot i Harlie s letter How could i so forgetful wait just a minute and she hurried out of the room. Quot Charlie s Philip could not believe his ears. Evidently there was a mistake somewhere. Presently Irene returned with a letter in her hand which she was folding ready for the envelope. Quot i am so glad you mentioned letters Philip for yesterday morning i wrote to my old school chum Charlotte Tracy or Quot Charlie Quot As we always called her and forgot to give it to How easily it was All explained. Philip had made himself miserable for nothing. How Happy he was to prove it ill a mistake. Some time he would Tell his wife All about it but not now. Quot have you seen papa s new dog Carlo Quot she asked As they sat in the parlor. Quot yes Quot he replied uneasily Quot i have bad the pleasure of meeting the Quot in t he splendid ? i he s so Alf Octiva ate Quot Quot i noticed that he was very demonstrative Quot returned he As he moved uneasily in his chair. Quot he is very playful too. I never saw a More playful animal in my Quot i am very glad to hear you say Quot Why Quot because i was a Little bit afraid that when he bit that piece out of me the other evening he was in Earnest. But if he was Only in play of course it s All right. I can take fun As Well As frames to Post. A Nortor mass Man says that he was born just before breakfast so Quot cannot sleep after Daylight Quot most women die Happy feeling that the Bustle of the world s behind. Matters grave and Gay in which our fair readers take an Especial interest pm a couple of be lamps prepared solely for their instruction and edification. If warmth of appearance generates warmth of body then Soma of the fur bordered garments worn this season May be what they seem but the cold fact is that Many a woman whose jacket is heavily edged with fur is at the same time shivering under a scant covering. A strip of temperate zone runs around her neck Down her front and around her hips underneath the fur trimming but the rest of the garment especially if she be herself thicker than she likes is an inadequate covering of frigid Goose flesh. This picture shows that such Coats Are decidedly handsome however and they set off Good figures admirably. All sorts of fur Are used in their embellishment from Black to White is an equal variety in the fabrics. Jaunt iness is aimed at and a great Deal of artistic skill can be used in adapting the shapes to the individuality of the wearer. There Are dressier wraps than the jackets however and two of them Are Here illustrated. The first one is a part of a very charming Winter toilet. The bodice is tight like a jacket but it extends into something like the draperies of a skirt. The material in the Model from which the drawing was made is Myrtle Green cloth braided with Black while the Muff is of the fashionable Mouflon fur. The hat is of Myrtle Green velvet Cauffet up at the Back in the manner shown in the sketch and trimmed in front with bows of moire Myrtle Green ribbon and shaded Crimson wings arranged to meet in two upright Points. This hat will be found equally been mag to almost any style of coiffure. The second toilet is still dressier and is such As very fashionable women in Large cities Are Apt to Wear in making formal Calls or going to afternoon receptions. The Bonnet is deemed indispensable rather than a hat on these occasions. The wrap is silk Plush trimmed with russian Sable with a Muff to match. Who says that stylish clothes Are always essential to feminine Comfort an elderly gentleman Rural but solid both in character and finance was in town yesterday with his wife and daughter. The woman wore a shawl that had v Een fashionable a Quarter of a Century ago and was still a Bhaji to Ful Sample of Oriental manufacture. It had once been costly and Why should t it remain valuable As a sensible woman Able to buy newer finery if she chose Why should she give Way to newfangled notions so there she was in her India shawl Well satisfied with herself and asking no Odds of the dire lotions Given in such articles As this in which her portrait affords such contrast to that of the other women depicted. The girl was modernized but not much. Her attempts at fashionable Ness were crude enough and her aspect altogether was hardly a Success judged by City methods of toilet. Her hair Hung Down in curls behind and in front of each ear was what she probably Calls a Beau Catcher for that is the country name of it. Changes in hair dressing Are not closely followed by our Farmers daughters. Of they will look at Tho nine Heads of modish Belles in this article they will see a number of new coi tires ranging from the stately hirsute pile of a woman at the opera to the artfully unconfined tresses of the Debutante at a Ball. The most Blish dress could not make a stylish girl of one who persists in spit locks and Waterfall curls. They Are past and gone. Suppose two girls Are ready to go to a Ball and if their Ages Are Here mentioned As seventeen and Twenty it is because the difference in the it years is very carefully observed in their toilets. The elder sister although still Young is not new to the Gay ties of society and her dress is such As might be worn by any woman tinder thirty. The train and bodice Are of Lake Blae moire an Tique with Broad a Padow stripes. The front of the skirt veiled with Blua Crape and edged with stuff Pleat us is of Satin like the puffing round Tho training breadth. A flounce Twenty one inches deep of real Point is gathered slightly and set on to the skirt a second gives a finish to the Pannier like Side drapery of Crape. The Low bodice laced at the Back is trimmed with a Fiche of Crape and narrow Point. Tho younger girl is to make her first appearance at a Public Ball and her gown free from decollete Scarcity of material is Essen ally juvenile. It is made of Clear White Muslin and has an elegant airy appearance. The foundation skirt is veiled first with a flounce gathered slightly Over which Falls also from the skirt band a Fine pleated one. White Serge ribbon twelve inches wide May be replaced by silk if preferred. The Sash is arranged loosely in front and tied in a Bow at the Back. A Fine pleated lace flounce trims the Edge of the bodice for which the Muslin is Laid in folds beside the pointed neck opening. People who go to new York to see the sights Are not Apt to pay six dollars for any one sight As that sum is the Price of an orchestra seat at the metropolitan opera House the Cost of viewing the swell women in their boxes is rather excessive especially for those who care nothing about the German operas presented there. A woman sitting in a Ball dress at a theatrical end stylish wraps. Text ailment with her neck and arms Bare is a curious one to unaccustomed eyes and even in new York a great Deal is said and written in condemnation of such toilets at the opera. But there they Are and there they will remain As Long As it is fashionable to Wear the same sort of dress at the opera that is ordinarily seen at a Ball perhaps you May have read last Winter about the open hissing of chattering people in the boxes by those who wished to be attentive listeners in the Parquette. The incident was published because it was new. Tho same thing happens every Little while but is now considered too commonplace to print. The sons and daughters of wealth assemble in a Box and caring nothing for the stage performance will get into loud and Lri Hughing conversation. Some genuine Lover of music who dislikes to have Bis ear miss any of the music and knows of no Way to close them at the same time against the other noise rises excitedly from his seat aces the offenders and hisses with All his might sometimes his protest has an effect and sometimes it does t. In some cases the ladies seem rather to like the attention that is drawn to them. The clothes of these proud and defiant Belles lately show a tendency to adapt the various historical epochs to the taste of the present Day. From the Era of the talons Down to the toilets of the Days of Louis Xiv. Everything is reproduced not literally but As has been said in the Way of adaptation. Therefore we see unit due Henri Deus toilets made of the magnificent brocades fresh from the looms at Lyons and Pompadour costumes whose stately Broche fabrics recall pictures of the luxurious and picturesque gowns of the sixteenth Century. There Are also antique bodices sleeves and skirt draperies and Garni Tures showing a charming melange of the fashions of different eras All concentrated into one. The Quot simplicity Quot and Quot severity Quot we Bear so much talk about is nothing More than the most refined and consummate Art. Every simple fold has a meaning every curve a motive. Herein lies the great skill of the Modiste who invariably uses her deft Needle and unerring Eye with an intention. A glimpse at some of the very elegant visiting and dinner dresses hard ii fashion abide. Newly imported proves conclusively that the rage for elegant beaded decorations is still Ledger 7
