Alberton had bought some contiguous property that Long coveted she was forty years of age but Chandlers guardian proposed that he should marry her the Benefit to his estate would be considerable Chandler said he would look into the matter and about a week after his return strolled Over to pay his respects to his new neighbor it was a hot morning and Chandler in a thin White flannel suit and a Straw hat entered the Gate of the Atherton grounds and strolled up the walk toward the House a Young girl sat on a rustic Bench under a tree Reading it occurred to the Visi Tor that he would go Over to where she was sitting and ask if mrs Ather ton was at Home besides he might elicit some preliminary information about the widow leaving the walk he approached the girl she was pretty but so plainly dressed that Chandler was in doubt As to her Posi Tion however he lifted his hat politely and asked beg Pardon but can you Tell me if mrs Alberton is at Home not this morning she has gone to the urn him sorry to miss her hearing that i had a new neighbor i came Over to Call upon its very hot and you look tired wont you rest yourself the girl moved to one end of the Bench that he might occupy the other thank you very he replied seating himself this was All very fortunate he have in Opportunity to Chat about the widow perhaps you will be Good enough to aay to mrs Atherton on bar return that or

Union of the two estates it is quite natural that you should be interested to Lorn something about her especially what you have just referred to since she is to much older than Chandler Drew within himself How did it he said coldly that you of i was not eavesdropping to sides mrs Atherton told me nil about the matter is soon As your Uncle had May i ask if she was favourably Dis posed toward Trio plan she was very much interested in the in Tor of uniting Tho two proper ties she said it would very much enhance Tho value of but marrying a Man younger than herself All that part of it you must get from this was said in n tone that indicated she had not relished the implied charge of eavesdropping i beg Pardon i should not have expected you to Roc no what is of necessity a Confidence since we have progressed so far in discussing the matter May i an opinion you you would think of such a match i of i think of giving an opinion on n matter that concerns you and mrs you consider it very mercenary t i certainly would unless you came to love each in this vein they chatted on for some time when Chandler arose i he said that you will inform mrs Atherton of this meeting and so much of what has passed be tween us is you think will interest if you desire it i shall consider the meeting and All that has been said As you he replied nothing has been said that mrs Atherton should not i May Tell her that you will Cal again i please do so i will come in a few she will naturally be interested to see Chandler walked away perhaps bet Ter pleased with his visit than if he Val seen the lady he had called on mrs Secretary was not Only attractive in appearance but had a delicate sense of what was not proper for her to say in such a Conversa Tion Chandler was a bit dissatisfied with himself for having implied thai she had been an eavesdropper he wished for an Opportunity to remove any unpleasant impression that his mistake might have occasioned when he called again he did nol acknowledge to himself that he would like to have another tet Patete with ithe he was received by her with a message from mrs Ather ton that she was indisposed and begged him to excuse her mrs Atherton has especially charged me to say to she added that you Are not to regard adversely her not seeing you today and that she Hopes you will come again soon she expects to be presentable within few Chandler did not hurry away he called at 5 Oclock and at 6 he was still occupied with mrs Ather tons Secretary then the Butler came in with an invitation for him to re main for dinner mrs Atherton her self could not be present but her Secretary would do the honors for her Chandler accepted the invitation with alacrity he did not leave the House until 11 Oclock that night Fate seemed to be against Chandler meeting the widow the next time he called she bad again gone to the City and the next after that she had had a fall that had necessitated her remain ing in bed for a few Days Chandler was enjoying so Well his visits with the Secretary that he didst care if the mistress remained bedridden for the rest of her Days then one Day when he called he received a message from the lady through her Secretary that she had been considering Tho matter of joining the estates by their marriage and had come to the conclusion that the difference in their Ages would be altogether too great an objection on receipt of this communication Chandler stood looking very disconsolate i am sorry for your disappoint said the Secretary it int replied Chandler Dole fully not that then what is it Why 1 have no excuse to conic Here any and Why should you come when the object of your coming has ceased to exist How am t going to get on without seeing you to this Tho Only reply was a dropping of the girls eyes to the floor i have a said Chandler since i cant marry tie mistress ill make a proposition to Trio Secretary it is not to unite two estates but two she looked up it him with a Charm ing expression sit she sold and ill Tell you a Story your undo and mrs Atherton Wero very anxious to unite these estates As Yon know neither of them had any idea of a marriage be tween you and her and now

Trees under the warm Sun Shine whether her heart budded a the same time is not known but a incident occurred that burst a Blossom of mischief into a full blown Flower Grace had caught a glimpse of a Young Man who lived next door h was Nineteen or Twenty while she was seventeen and a half being very particular that the half should be put on when her age was mentioned the fac of this gentleman who was very Good looking who wore Buff gaiters Over his boots whose clothes were Cut by the Corre test pattern and whose White cuffs always protruded exactly two inches below his say the fact of his being a nest door neighbor excited a profound interest in the Young Ladys heart they were to live no one knew How Long Side by Side they might become bosom friends pos Sibly like brother and sister possibly lovers this May be is decidedly pleasanter to contemplate than migh have the first is the Bud the last the decaying Flower of blessed age when there Are Nomad memories nevertheless youth is Peculiar one would suppose that harbouring such Rainbow fancies mis Buddington would act in a Way calculated to bring them about that she would look for Ward to a conventional meeting will her neighbor which would grow into friendliness and from friendliness expand in some one of the channels that had been dug for it he imagination she did the very opposite while she was watching the nurses in the Park halting their baby carriages for a Brief bit of Chat the Fountain sparkle in the Sun while she listened to the chirp of Birds and a Distant confused noise of Many vehicles on a Street beyond the door of the nest House opened and the Young gentleman of whom she was dream ing came out on the stoop his boots a Stickpin in his neckwear and his silk hat All glistened in the Sun he stood swinging his Cane in his band looking out on the pleasant scene be fore him evidently very Well satisfied with himself then noticing that not quite enough of his cuffs showed be Low his sleeves be adjusted first one and then the other but in doing so he noticed a spot on his right cuff and talking out a snowy Cambric hand kerchief endeavoured to obliterate it during All this time miss budding ton was watching him from the win Dow some dozen feet above him and two or three feet to one Side while to was endeavouring to remove the spot from his cuff she disappeared for a few moments and when she re turned held in her hand a Pitcher of water extending her Arm she held the Over the reflected Streak of sunlight crossing the top of his silk hat but she refrained whether this was on account of pangs of conscience or a desire to enjoy the situation by prolonging the Climax or from a dread of making an enemy instead of a Friend of her immaculate neighbor there is no record the sensation was certainly delicious but the most delicately Flavoured wine must be Swal Lowed at last and presently tipping the Pitcher she poured a Stream Down on her unsuspecting neighbor when or was the Young mans name t Pemberton tip the water resounding As on a drumhead upon the top of his hat and splattering Fountain like All him his first impulse was to stand from under Tho second to look up to see whence it came he was too late to see More than the Pitcher and a shapely wrist disappearing within the window but he had before Secir the Young lady who had recently come to live next door and was

contemptuously he quite sure by the girl next door lie swore a great oath of revenge a few Days later or tippler while walking Home saw miss Buddington coming from the other direction he involuntarily quickened his Pace then suddenly slowed up he looked to the right and to the left and up at the sky the Stoops of their respective Homes were Sloby Side or rather there was but one stoop with a Stone division at first or tippler wished to meet miss Buddington at the Bottom of the Steps that he might show his supreme a difference to her by turning his Back upon her then he was afraid he would meet her he took out his hand kerchief and blew his nose he car ried a silk umbrella in his hand and while trying to walk with dignity trip led on it his hat fell in front of him and he stepped on it Grace budding Ion who at that moment turned to Steps giggled or tippler was boiling with rage after that whenever or tippler caught sight of miss Buddington approaching him he made a strenuous Effort to appear unconcerned the Way he did it was first to pull Down his cuffs next he would adjust his neck Wear after that his handkerchief came he blew Bis nose finally when he passed her his face would be As red As a Turkey cock As for miss Buddington when she saw or tippler coming she would proceed on her Way with the utmost composure on passing the gentleman the Only sign of embarrassment she showed was putting her Palm to her Back half but this should not be counted As embarrassment for All women do that meanwhile the courtship was pro Gressing finely when or tippler went into the Back Yard he would seize the limb of a tree and pull him self up by his Aims to show his strength to the girl next door who he Felt sure was peeping through the blinds at him then he would loll on a wooden Bench taking care to assume a Graceful position All the while he was waiting for an Opportunity to show his contempt for the girl for whose Benefit he was posing finally came his Chance for revenge one Day when he was showing off in the Back Yard while his Back was to the houses he heard something lightly strike the ground behind him turning he saw a Little Posy looking up at the next door windows he saw no one but he knew and where was revenge he was supremely Happy Why not because he might throw Back this Little Token instead of doing so he put it in his buttonhole and looked up at half a dozen windows from one of which he was sure the Posy had been tossed his face wove a smile which he in tended for an appreciative and tender one but intended smiles Are always like those people put on to be
