Hutchinson News (Newspaper) - July 18, 1890, Hutchinson, Kansas 2 HUTCHINSON DAILY NEWS: FB1DAY MORNING. JULY 18.1890. SHADOW CHILDREN. i When the mm lib low then I we j Bbadow* mfteneaUi tho tref GUdlDjr merrily around, L Herer making any Bound. ' PUyiQR at their gumes, no doubt- G*mt� 1 do not know About. AH . I thought, you came to woo Cuimin Sybil. I believe alio com! dors you engaged to her. I havu always thought you were." "Have you V'baid Frank Aubury. "Well, I will tell the simple- tmth; that would have happened if 1 had not met you. I'm very fond of her yet in a brotherly sort o* way, you know. fcJhu'B awfully good, and her fortune is uot to,bo forgotten. But I worship you; 1 ara as much in love with yon as a man can bo with a woman. Yes, if you had uot come I should have married Sybil. But you did come." Sybil turued Boftly away, thinking how much trouble aho had taken to coax her cousin Rose to come to visit her In quiet old Parkertown, thinking that it was all her own fault that she hud been thrown in Frank Aubury's way. Frank was very handsome, and Rose had an occupation for her idle hours. She hud known that he was Sybil'** lover; that if not engaged they understood each other; and she had deliberately gone to work to fob her of his heart. Deliberately. She had seen it, too, and had trusted him. Perfect love had cast out jealuuny. She had fancied that Rose might amusu herself without harming her. "Idiot 1" she said to herself. "Ah, we pay as dearly for our folly as for our crimes." And then a stern resolve possessed her. Suffer as she might, no one should know lu Sho would take the matter into her own hands. That evening who had a conversation with Frank Anbury which sent him from her with his blood l>oiling. He was ready to jilt her, but he was not as ready to be jilted. That is quite another thing. "I've been wrong, I think," sho had said, "to let you fancy that I might he won. I have had a fit of remorse about it. I shall never marry a man who cannot give mo position. At tlrst I thought you would be _able to do that, but you seem contcut to where you are. I lik:- you as a _other, but no more, and we whall bo ends, shall wo not?" � acted well, and she made him feel as red th;;t he should, and afterward ed to IEose. no know why I Kent for you?" sho \wanted to find a wife, for Frank fancied he liked me and I ge/i him, but it would never �-and-tv;euty.

A little girl was hired to Assist In the care of the poor baby, and Rose, in her new dress, was perpetually going out to call, to walk, to-mop. Sybil kept her puree full, and Frank besought his cousin to stay -to rend to him, to sing to him. They had a little upright piano which Rose never touched. She did all ho asked, and every hour deepened her thankfulness that she was not his wife, and added to her disgust for his contemptible character. Moreover, she exerted herself among some friends she hod, and obtained for her cousin's husband a position which he could fill as soon as his health permitted. She was very anxious to return homo-anxious to begin to be happy again, as she could not be where these two unfortunate people quarreled perpetually; but sho resolved not to leave them until her duty was done. Of the climax that approached she did not guess. It came like a thunder clap. One day ns eho was sitting near the window with the baby in her lap-Rose staying unusually long abroad that day-a messenger boy brought a note to the door. Ho gave it to .Frank, who opened it, read it and uttered a furious oath, "Read it," he said. Sybil caught tho paper that bu flung toward her. It bore these words: 1 am off. I don't go alone. There are people who tli in It mo ta charrolns as ever. I shall be In Europe, and living where you can't find me before you aro able to hobble about How horridly you iiavo twed ine!

Bho can afford it, ond it may grow up decent if sho does In sptta of being our child. I boil to taho tho money sho put In tho drawer (or the landlady. I needed-absolutely needed-a traveling wrap. Good-by, forever. Thank goodness I Rose. "And I am not able to follow her to kill them both," gasped Frank. "Oh.myGodt" and he wept with rage and shame. Knowing nil sho knew, Sybil found it hard to pity him. Still when afterward he asked her if she would take tho child under her care she said "yes" for tho baby's sake. THE OLD COACH. Two years after this Frank Aubury went slowly up tho path that led to that ptfetty homestead on tho hill, where behind the laurels Sybil had llstenod to his words to her cousin Rose. That was not yet five years ago, but ten should not have changed hini sfi. He was thin and worn aud limped i little, and his skin w�.s gray, and the look of a man who was dissatisfied with life was in his eyes. lie thought how comfortable all this was as he entered tho broad, well furnished hall, and waa shown Into the wido parlor in which Sybil sat reading to a pretty little girl. Sybil handsomer than ho ever th6ught she could be, "My poor girl, I suppose," he said, looking at the child after Sybil had given him her hand. "Kiss your father, my dear. That U the proper thing, I suppose;" but the child was shy and rati out of tho room calling to her nurse, "I deserve it," said he. "I never even named her. What do you call her?" "Frank," said Sybil; "Frances she was christened." "I'm glad it was not Rose," said he. "Rose is dead, Sybil. Sho sent for me to zomo to her. Sho died in a hospital mero wreck." There was silence; then ho said: "Sybil, you were my first love, and I have never ceased to love you. Rose bewitched me, but I repented before our honeymoon was over. Sybil, I love you still. Can't you let tho past dio out of memory? I-I'm not so bad a fellow as you think." Sybil looked at him gravely. "Stop!" she said, "i.*ong ago when you had made love to me very ardently I came to like you. I heard you talking to Ruse behind the laurels, and I look my love by the throat, and strangled it.; and now-look -this is my engagement ring. I am to bo married to-morrow to one I not only love, but esteem, and all memory of the past sorrow is blotted out. You did not make my poor cousin happy, Frank; you drove her to her fate. She saved me from much sorrow when she, as you say, lie witched you." There was a pause. "" hope you ure getting on well," Sybil said, after a while*. "Oh, yes," he answered, "if drudgery for bread and butter fills the bill." Then ho arose. "Good-by," ha said.

"Tho coach!' "Tho professor's hearso!" "Oh, my, what a lark it would be-" "Well, why not to-night, eh, LoyaP Now's our time. What do you aayP" A group of half a dozen boys stood In the shndmv of one of tho whlto pillared, brick paved, cloister like colonnades, or "rows," watching an old fashioned chaise as It came up the road from tho town, and passed around to the rear of one of the professors' residences--that of Professor I W-. | When the vehicle had disappeared behind the row the six young students sauntered off in pairs to continue their conference in the seclusion of one of those curious old serpentine brick walls which are counted among tho sights of tho place. For the scene we are describing was at tho University of Virginia, at Charlottes-villa, an institution with h history. A few miles down the Rivauna river, under the shadow of the Little Mountain, stood the colonial homestead whereTtiomas Jetfcrson was born 147 years ago. The future framer of the Declaration of Inde-pendenceand third president of the United States was, from all accounts, an exceedingly live aud spirited youth. His student dayh were spent at Williamsburg, tho colonial capital of Virginia, down In the peninsula or southeastern portion of the state, midway between the York and James rivers. Here was the scat of the renowned William and Mary college, tho most ancient institution of learningin this country after Harvard. "Tom" Jefferson ilgurcd prominently in mauy a college escapade, and in letters of his, which are still pre served, he habitually calls tho venerable town "Devilsburgh. When Jefferson became a man he realized at least one of the dreams of his youth by acquiring tho magnificent lands upon aud around Montkcllo (Italian for Little Mountain), and buildiug upon the summit tho classic and stately mansion that was his hoine during: tho renminder of his long and illustrious life. In the same elegant and substantial stylo of architecture as his own mansion be drew the plans for what he intended should lie tho noblest university buildings on this continent. The construction of these buildings, on the opposite edge of Charlottesville from Monticello, Jefforson personally superintended, and watched eagerly from tho portico of his home on tho mountain, four or five miles away. He was in every senso of the word the "Father of the University of Virginia"-a title beloved by bira and embodied in tho simple epitaph prepared by him for his tomb, which even omits mention of the fact that he was prcs-' lent of the United States of America. Considering how much of "Tom" Jefferson's owu buoyant, personality went Into the organization of t'�u university, it is not surprising that traditions of mirth and Jollity should have been handed down from one generation of students to another, even unto this day. It has been the alma mater of many of the sou tit's most, brilliant men, including the poet. Edgar Allan Poe. Fach one of t hese, without a doubt, left the impress of his peculiar personality upon the unwritten chronicles of the institution's merry making, aud when on a modern field day or festival you see a rakish looking student wearing a blue ribbon badge with some such mystic inscription os"iOli Banana" you may bo sure ho is up to a considerable amount of surreptitious fun. The half dozen hopeful youths intro^ duced at the opening of this sketch were not unworthy inheritors of tbu traditions cf Charlottesville. Two of them carried in their pockets bits of iron that had ouco been a part of tho hour hand of the great clock over tho main portico below the dome of the rotunda, and which had been purloined iv dead of night at tno im mi tient risl; of somebody's nee'e. At least t-hrea of the number could have told-but, wouldn't-why the bell some times refused to riri^, a:nt how it happened that oue Sunday morning a live bear its prowling about in the chapel, and itU! within an ace of breakfasting upon u doctor of divinity. Not one of the six was a stmn^er upon Vinegar Hill, a locality kii'twn to students, and where the miduight oil is burned not necessarily over books and study. So they stood in the curve of tho brick wall and discussed their plan of campaign with all the directness and audacity of veterans. "Tho roads aro in good condition,*' one was saying, "and tho old trap will run casil;'." "As noisolossly as a ghost," put in second.

I wish tho chiel that takes notes would bo just a trifle more i:i loto with the truth. I never had a "bright red satin drese," reformed" or otherwise. I don't think a bright red satin dress could be reformed except by annihilation. I utterly loathe bright icd �utin, and wouldn't wear it under any consideration. Bright red satin might be possible for some women in a ballroom or on the stage, but for a working gown it is tho worst taste conceivable. in addition, bright red satin Is horribly unbecoming to ninety-nine women out of a hundred. I am not the hundredth.
