The cry of the dreamed a. By John Boyle c really. I am tired of planning and toiling in the crowded hives of men heart Wendy of building and spoiling and spoiling and building again. And i Long for the dear old River where 1 dreamed my youth away for a dreamer lives forever and a toilet Dies in a Dai. I am sick of the Shovary seeming of a life that is half a he of the faces lined with scheming in the throng that hurries by. From the sleepless thoughts Endeavor i would go where the children play for a dreamer lives forever and a toilet Dies in a Day. I feel no Pride but pity for the burdens the Rich endure there is nothing Sweet in the City but the patient lives of the poor. Of the Little hands so skilful and the child mind choked with Weeda the daughter s heart grows wilful and the father s heart that bleeds. No no from the Street s rude Bustle from trophies of Mart and stage i would Fly to the Wood s Low Rustle and the Meadow s kindly Page. Let me dream As of old by the River. And be loved for the dream alway for a i Eamer lives forever a and a toilet Dies in a Day. A Nebraska state Beard. Kyc aka Aie Kwin. Quot and How do you like Lenora s betrothed husband quot asked mrs. Jones in a whisper of aunt Crump. Quot of dear quot replied aunt Crump quot i Don t like him at All he put me in mind of Blue quot dear me quot cried mrs. Jones with a Start quot what strange things you do say Lucretia. Blue Beard quot quot yes i give you my word that As soon As i saw him i thought of that dreadful person that poor Fatima married quot said aunt Lucretia Crump. Quot his Beard is just the tint i never thought Blue Beard s Beard was Light but a kind of dark invisible Blue you know and the Dye or. Turk uses has really a Blue Shine. You need t pretend you Don t know lie dyes quot i Haven t jul extended quot said mrs. A Jones quot i Haven t said a word about it Lucretia and if a gentleman of 40 should und a few Gray hairs in his hair Why should t he color pm is it any worse than friezes quot quot perhaps not quot said miss Crumit quot but it s the likeness to Blue Beard we were s making of. There s an air of mystery about the Many a dreadful air of mystery in my opinion and of course he s a quot Well Yee is quot reluctantly assented mrs. Jones. Quot one or two quot asked miss Crump. Quot i really Don t understand you quot said mrs. Jones with asperity. Quot i mean How often has he been married before quot asked the aunt. Quot Well twice but the unions were very Brief quot said mrs. Jones. Quot no doubt quot said miss Crump quot no doubt. Did you ask him what they died of quot quot of course not quot said mrs. Jones. Quot i should if i d been Lenora s a quot Aid miss Crump. Quot but people Are so glad to marry their girls Olf that they Don t care to whom they give them. No sister since you ask i Don t like Blue beards i mean or. Turk. It s All the same. Quot i do quot said mrs. Jones quot a most gentlemanly person and i must say i think you Are absurdly prejudiced in this Case quot we shall see quot said miss Crump. Quot time will prove but i d like to know How those first poor dears died before i gave my daughter to him if i had one Imogene. However Lenora is not mine but yours. Send her to make the third of Blue Beard s victims if you quot How very ridiculous quot said mrs. Jones but she Felt a Little uncomfortable. She had a great Deal of respect for Lucretia s Powers of penetration and or. Turk had come from some Distant place and very recently and he wore the wedding rings of two deceased wives on his Little Finger though he certainly was not much past 40. However he had taken an excellent position As a medical Man. He had Fine rooms in the College building. He must have Means. He told her that he was not dependent on his profession for Money. Had he not of ered Lenora every elegant attention ? did he not Hope that she would reside with them after their Union and should she let Lucretia s words influence her no of course not. Still mis. Jones could not feel quite comfortable and when or. Turk called that evening she Felt guilty As she remembered the doubts that had been troubling her All that afternoon and All that miss Crump had said. Quot there is to be a very interesting lecture at the College to Morrow afternoon quot said or. Turk As he arose to take his departure. Quot May i Hope to see you All there if you will walk Over about 2 o clock i shall be Able to find you excellent seats. I cannot leave at that hour or i would do myself the pleasure of coming for quot we can come by ourselves very Well indeed quot said mrs Jones. Quot sister Lucretia will be delighted i know. She likes lectures. And so it was settled before Lenora slipped out of the room for those few Good Bye moments that Are so dear to lovers. Quot is he not polite Lucretia quot she whispered. Quot i believe Blue Beard was very attentive to his Mother in Law before the marriage quot said miss Crump but she went to the lecture next Day notwithstanding. The ladies were very Early and or. Turk having greeted them escorted them to his own parlor a pretty room full of Book cases Ami cabinets. Quot perhaps you can Juass half an hour pleasantly Here quot he said quot i must to Greg to be excused for that length of time these cases contain some minerals and curiosities rather Worth looking at and there Are some books that Are of value and interest i will give you my keys. He took from his pocket a i ing and began to detach from it one particular key a Large brass one. Then quot i shall lose it if i take it off quot he said. Quot ladies open everything you care to look at except this door quot a he pointed to one set in a Little recess quot this brass key opens that and it is Best for you that it should remain closed. Otherwise do As you he bowed and departed leaving the keys in Lenora s hands while mrs. Jones stared at aunt Lucretia who with uplifted hands whispered quot Blue quot what does aunt mean Mamma quot said Lenora. Quot of you know your aunt quot said mrs. Jones. Quot she pretends to think dear or. Turk exactly like Blue quot in t he quot asked Lucretia in a dreadful whisper quot and now a locked door that we must not open. Of my love my love let me warn you. There s an awful mystery in or. Turk s life. How did his first wives die ? How do you know what May be in that closet which he forbids you to open quot quot gracious aunt have you gone mad at last quot said Lenora quot yes certainly quot said mrs. Jones quot and to prove it i la unlock the closet. I la show you that there is no mystery whatever in quot you May find his two first wives a Pickle quot said miss Crump. Quot of Mamma quot cried Lenora quot the idea open a closet we were expressly requested not to open ? not for worlds and aunt i wonder you Are not ashamed to speak so of poor or. Turk s afflictions. Widowhood is a calamity. The Best of people lose their quot i always feel suspicious of widowers anyhow quot said aunt clump. Quot and this door which you must t open quot which i will said mrs. Jones. Quot you Sha n to quot cried Lenora. How dare you say slip n t to me quot said mrs. Jones. Quot is that respectful quot quot respectful or not Mamma quot cried Lenora quot i can t let you do such a thing. Y full feel sorry to Morrow if you quot open the door if you want proof that there s a mystery at the Bottom of All this quot cried aunt Lucretia. Mrs. Jones brushed past her daughter and put the Brasa key into the key Hole of the forbidden door. Lenora burst into tears. Miss Lucretia Crump peeped Over her sister s shoulder and the door opened. As it did so mrs. Jones uttered a loud shriek and aunt Crump echoed it. Before them swung two skeletons White and shining objects calculated at any time to alarm a nervous female but at this juncture actually horrifying to both old ladies. Quot just As i said. Blue Beard s counterpart. Those Are his two wives i quot cried miss Crump. Quot let us go Home quot said mrs. Jones. Quot Lenora come away. From what a Fate have i saved quot i wonder which is his first one quot said miss Crump. The longest i suppose. I wonder How he killed then she gave a shriek and slammed the door to for another door had opened to admit or. Turk. For a moment he stood quietly gazing at the excited two then offered mrs. Jones his Arm. Quot it is time to secure our seats quot he said. Quot come but mrs. Jones Drew Back. Quot we beg to be excused quot she said. Quot excused quot cried or. Turk quot i Don t understand. What has happened quot quot we be opened the forbidden closet quot said aunt Crump. Quot i tried to keep them from doing it sobbed Lenora. Quot and we be seen your two wives. Blue Beard quot cried miss Crump. Quot yes we know Why you forbid us to open it and we shall take care that our poor girl is not your third victim. I for one was never deceived in you. I detected your resemblance to Blue Beard at quot Madam quot said or. Turk very quietly quot i never met or. Blue Beard so i cannot Tell whether i resemble him or not but i can prove to you that these Are not my deceased he rang the Bell. A coloured servant entered. Quot Adam quot he said quot open the closet where the skeletons Are will you these ladies feel interested in quot yes sir. But excuse me they mostly frighten ladies quot said Adam unlocking the door quot these ladies will not be frightened quot said the doctor.

Quot this Here one sir quot said Adam quot waa the Skeleton of the largest Baboon Ever discovered. This one a Gorilla quot thank you you can go quot said the doctor. Then turning to miss Crump who sat Bolt upright on her chair with a face the color of an Oleander he asked calmly quot do you still believe that these Are my wives Madam quot none of that party attended the lecture that Day mrs. Jones had cried her eyes too red and aunt Lucretia waa in too great a Sage. As for Lenora she refused to be comforted for a Long while but the doctor must have succeeded at last for they Are married but though they quite forgave aunt Lucretia Crump and invited her to the wedding she did not forgive them sufficiently to attend happenings.
