script from the youthful writer who had sent
me no more, was recalled to me.
Unconsciously the manuscript I held laded
from my mind, ad the other was present with
me. Wondered what had become of her; had
she written any more, where and how was
she!
Every moment 1 became more and more pos
sessed with the memory. I was so happy my
self that I felt for all who seemed to have care
and straggle in their lives, I looked out the ad
dress to which I had written before, and wrote
to the unknown a few lines. I said that timo
had passed, that the youthful inexperience
which had prevented the paper she had sent
(rom lx:inj! accepted, must now be corrected,
ami that I should be "lad and willing to see
enything else she had written, if she had writ
ten anything since then.
Within a few days I had an answer. The
writing was in u feigned haml, quite unlike tho
round, hesitating, girlish haml I remembered.
The words were, however, as sweet and inno
cent as the lirst had been. The noto ran as
follows:
"It is gootl of you to remember me, hut I do
nut write any more. I am so happy. I have a
go .1, noble husband. Oh, these womanly ex
aggerations, 1 thought, as 1 Bat in my editorial
chair. Ami such darling babies! I wrote, for
I wanted to help my dear ones, but they bave
been better helped by others than I could ever
have hoped to help them, (iod has given them
a li.ti.-r friend than I could be. If you seek to
know me, you shall do so. If when you go
home you see a woman with a rose in her hand,
bold out yours. You will know me."
I smiled at the romantic fervor of this reply,
and a faint desire arose that my wife and the
writer of the letters should know each other,
and then I went on with my sttipifying avoca
tions. As I went home, I confess I looked about for
a woman with a rose in her hand, but, as
Blight naturally be supposed, neither in cabs
pot omuibuea did such an apparition manifest
itself.
As I entered my own door I gave an impa
tient shrug at the idea nf having been the sub
)eot of a loutish jest. Hut whom did 1 see
standing within the threshold of my home?
My darBng, with her fair, child-like faco and
bright hair; love, ami joy, and youth crowning
her with a triple crown, ami in her hand was a
rose !
"I'tar husband," ho said, as I kissed her,
1 think I loved you from the moment I had
o..r kind, indulgent, thoughtful note. 1 had
written that ebenrd little try for 1 sadly
MMted a Utile money to pay for Herald's re
urn ho. at Christmas, to lie with papa and
