I BY MISADVENTURE
; : dy ;
: FRANK BARRETT ::
My name Is Kcene Anthony Kccne. I
mm n Inn-vnt alvtt.fniif Von r la m V niTP.
You may sec what kind of man I am by
my portrait; not over pleasant wim any
one. George Flexmore and I were friends,
lie was my first client when I 6et up In
Cnnovford. n Kninll town fust larce enough
at that time, as I believed, to keep a law
yer of its own; there are a couple or us
now, and we have as much to do as we
need. Flexmore had just then come Into
a fortune and he did not know what to
do with it. I prevented him from losing
it, as he certainly would have done with
out proper direction, for he was an easy
going man, of a credulous disposition,
such as your needy adventurer and shifty
speculator love to take in hand. For ev
ery man that has money there are ninety
nine who are anxious to spend It for him.
, "If any one asks you for money, Flex
more," said I, "don't refuse him; send
him to me." And he did so, with this re
sult he never lost a penny by these good
He had a great respect for me more
than I deserved doubtless. He seemed to
think that whatever I did must be right,
and I believe it was the sheer force of ex
ample that kept him out of matr.mony so
long: because I did not care to take a
wife, he thought it best to keep single.
But the conditions were different. I am
not an easy-going man, and marriage
would have been purgatory for me or my
wife, and the result must have been equal
ly bad for both of us in either case. But
Flexmore had nothing to do from morning
to night that might not very well be set
aside to attend to the wants of some
body else. He saw that he ought to have
some other object in life than to eat and
sleep and kill time that his life was in
complete In fact But he still made pre
tense of being content with a bachelor's
One day I caught him singing his old
song, "When a man's single he lives at his
ease," but in such a lugubrious strain
that it would have made me laugh If it
had not irritated me.
That's humbug. Flexmore," said I,
"and you know it. A man's happiness
consists in making other people happy
unless he's a lawyer. You're not a law
yer, and you ought to be making some
body happy. You'd be more at your ease
if you bad somebody else to think about,
and somebody else to think about you."
"Do you mean that 1 ought to marry,
Tony?" he said, blushing like a girl.
"That is exactly what I do meafc,
George. There's little Miss Vaughan,
who has been waiting to be asked these
three years; there are dozens of girls to
be chosen from."
"Do you think she would have me?" he
"Well, the best way of deciding that
point Is to go and ask her this afternoon,"
The result of this advice waa that
Flexmore married Miss Vaughan just six
weeks after. ,
She was much younger than he, as a
wife should be. A happier couple I never
aw. He lived to please her, and she to
please him that was the chief object of
A year after their marriage they had a
child," and a nice fuss they made about it.
She grew up a pleasant little thing, shy
and timid, with a clinging affection for
lovable persons and things. I never saw
anything like the passionate attachment
that existed between her and her sweet
tempered mother. Poor Mrs. Flexmore
had never been a robust person, and
well, to cut short a story that is too pain
ful to dwell upon, she died when little
Laure was eleven yeirs old.
Flexmore was then sixty-two, but he
was not too old to suffer. The loss un
manned him completely. He took on like
a woman; and he would have been less a
man if he had not, perhaps.
"My poor old friend," said I, "It would
have been better to let you live on an
"No, no," he replied. "After such hap
piness an eternity of suffering would find
me still a gainer."
"You have your child your little
Laure," said I : and then, to turn his
thoughts from the past, I talked about
the future, and what he should do for
the child's welfare. Indeed the child's
grief gave me almost as much concern as
the father's. It was not a passionate out
burst, that spends itself like a summer
shower and gives place to peace and
Btniles, but a continued fruitless yearn
ing for that loved one to come back who
was gone forever.
"You must have a woman here to com
fort her," I said to Flexmore.
He agreed to this, and sent for his de
ceased brother's widow, who had married
again and been a second time left a
widow, as being his nearest female rela
tive, and she came readily enough a
woman of fifty, hard as nails, and stringy
as an old crow. She looked upon little
I.a lire's distress as unnatural in a child,
and her morbid condition as the result of
defective education; and she set about
correcting all this by setting the little
thing to read some Instructive and moral
books which no conceivable creature could
find interest or pleasure in.
After she had been there three days
Dr. Awdrey had to be sent for. Laure
was feverish and couldn't "hold herself
up properly." Dr. Awdrey ordered her
to be put to bed at once, gave directions
respecting treatment, and sent physic to
be administered every two hours.
Mrs. Yeaines had studied medicine from
n shilling handbook that she carried with
her as If It were an amulet; she diluted
the physic and administered doses when
she thought fit. Little Laure was very
much worse when the doctor called the
next day; and It was not long before he
discovered the reason. He came down
Into the library where I waB sitting with
"Your child Is in a very dangerous con
dition," he said firmly.
"Heaven have mercy upon me!" ex
claimed my old friend, clasping his hands.
"What'a to be done?"
"She must have a proper nurse, to be
gin with,' said Dr. Awdrey. "I can get
you one whom I can rely on implicitly,
and who can do more than all my physic
for the poor child. She is In the hospital
for little children at London, and I be
lieve she would come at once if I asked
"Then for mercy's sake, telegraph for
her at once."
When the doctor was gone Flexmore
In some embarrassment turned to me.
"It will never work, Tony," said he do
spondently. "The nurse will never be
able to put up with Mrs. Yeamcs."
"Yes; sho's turned the whole place
topside turvy In putting things In order,
and left not a bit of comfort anywhere."
"Yes, yes; all tho things that my darl
ing loved she has packed away the lit
tle trifles with which Bhe made these
rooms so bright and pleasant I can't
bear to see the place altered; and those
trifles, Tony, I miss them I miss them."
"We'll have 'em all back again In twenty-four
"I asked her to come and live here.
How can I get rid of her?"
"Don't bother about that, George. You
leave her to me. Give me full authority
to act in your behalf, and stick to my
He gave me his word most Impressively
that he would. I went into the sitting
room and sent at once for Mrs. Yeamcs.
Then we had It out. She was a tough
one to deal with, but not nearly so tough
as I am. I tried to be polite, but I fear
I insulted her. She certainly said I
did. and went Into the library to know If
her brother-in-law would tolerate such a
want of respect on the part of a mere at
torney ; and the question being put direct
ly to Flexmore whether she or I were to
leave that house at once and forever, he
replied that he felt convinced, taking all
th.ngs into consideration, that he could
better afford to lose her than me.
' After that there was nothing for the
indignant widow to do but to pack up
and pack off which she did, happily, be
fore her fury gave place to more pruden
I expected to see a comely, motherly,
middle-aged woman, and was taken alto
gether by surprise when Nurse Gertrude
presented herself in the person of a slight
young woman of twenty-two or thereabouts.
Of course I am no judge of female
beauty, but I don't think Nurse Gertrude
at that time could be considered hand
some, or even very pretty. If I have any
predilection, it is for large women with
round, full figures: and I think I rather
like a saucy eye and a nice little turned
Now Nurse Gertrude, though by no
means short, was, as I have said, slight
and thin. She bad a very delicate, fair
complexion and pretty, dark hair, to be
sure; but her nose was long, and her
eyes were by no means saucy, hut calm
and deep and thoughtful. Her expres
sion was cheerful, and she had a pretty
trick of blushing, but In repose her face
was full of intelligence and solicitude.
One could not look at her without being
impressed with the belief that she was
essentially a pure and honest girl, with
a very earnest purpose, an amiable dis
position, and a clear-seeing, right-feeling
mind. Her eyes were so true and frank
and loyal, that one was attracted to
wards her as to a friend whose fidelity
and love could never be doubted.
One thing struck me, and this was
that in some peculiarity I know not
what she bore a resemblance to Mrs.
Flexmore as I had known her in her
younger days. And this seemed also to
have struck Flexmore, tor more than once
I saw blm, forgetful of the table, looking
at her with the tenderest interest on his
poor old woe-begone face.
"Oh, I see how this will end," said I
to myself. "He'll marry that girl If
she'll have him."
Mrs. Yeames, like an old buzzard that
has missed Its prey, hovered about the
neighborhood, watching the quarry with
the jealous intention of preventing any
other creature of her own species clawing
up what she bad failed to secure. She
took a cottage at the other end of the
town and joined a clique of ladles famous
for their ability in picking to pieces the
reputation of a fellow-Christian.
Meanwhile Nurse Oertrude fulnlletl
her duties with the calm self-possession
of one conscientiously doing what she
feels to be right. What she had come
there to do, she did and as if by magic.
With Dr. Awdrey s help she got the fever
under in a week, and after that she
brought a smile back to the poor child's
wasted face, which was of still greater
importance; for when one can smile, one
can eat and enjoy food. She gave little
Laure something to love, and nourished
her heart with kindness. That was what
she needed; that was what she got. She
had been craving for love since her moth
er was takpn away, and must have died
without It, as surely as a plant must die
But how was she to be weaned of this
love-food in order that Nurse Gertrude
might in time return to her hospital?
Every day her appetite grew by what It
fed on. All the clinging affection she
had brn to her mother she now exhibit
ed towards Nurse Gertrude. The child
had recognized the likeness that had
struck me; mother and nurse alike, In
some respects, were still of the same type
of woman and an excellent type, too.
After a time it became obvious that
Laure va not to be weaned and that
to take wny Nurse Gertrude would In
flict the terrible suffering the child
had endured In losing her mother. There
upon there were consultations between
Flexmore, Dr. Awdrey and me.
"It Is obvious that Nurse Gertrude Is
very strongly attached to your child,"
said Dr. Awdrey.
"She Is not unhappy here; she looks
better than when she came," said FJex
more. "Oh, undoubtedly he U better," Dr.
Awdrcv agreed. "The confinement of the
hospttal and the air of London were
telling upon her In fact, I must admit
that In recommending, her I was influ
enced by the consideration that tho
change would be to her advantage aa well
as your daughter's."
"If she would only consent to stay here
as a companion to dear Laure In any
capacity, on any terms t" said Flexmore.
"Do you think she would?"
"Go and ask her," said I.
She was asked; but Dr. Awdrey wn.
tho negotiator, for Flexmoro had not tho
courago of a mouse. And Nurse Gertrudo
acquiesced setting aside all other con
siderations for the sake of the child whoso
love had won her heart. So Dr. Awdrey
put It; for my own part I could not seo
what sacrifice she had mado In exchang
ing a close hospital ward for a pleasant
and airy house, and an 111-pald slavery
for a very remunerative position whero
she was free to do just as she liked. No;
I looked upon It that the young lady, to
gether with other very good qualities, had
a very clear perception of her duty to
herself, and that sho foresaw as plainly
as I did that sooner or later sho would
become Mrs. Flexmore.
Howover, to stick to tho facta of the
case ; that day Nurse Gertrude came down
to dinner without the becoming little cap
which had previously distinguished her
as an official nurse; and It we had come
to think her pretty In her cap, we wcro
bound to admit that she looked still nicer
without It her pretty hair drawn neatly
up and coiled plainly on her head.
Wo have a flower show In our town
once a year. The first day is the best,
of course, and, the prices excluding the
poorer kind of people, only the upper sort
are there. There was a rumor that titled
visitors were staying with the Casely's,
and that probably they would visit the
show in the afternoon; wherefore you
may be sure that Mrs. Yeames and her
"superiah" set were all thero in full
About three o'clock I saw Miss Dal
rymple come In with Laure; she never
missed any occasion of giving pleasure to
the child, or of taking it herself for that
matter. She was plainly dressed; but,
to my mind, there was no more elegant
young lady there. Mrs. Yeames with
three of her finest friends stopped them,
and with the most distant patronizing In
clination of their heads to Miss Dalrym
ple, bent down to kiss Laure, and ask
after her poor, dear papa. Then Mrs.
Yeames, taking the child's hand, led her
to a bank of cut flowers, asking her
whether she could spell th,e labels at
tached. In the midst of this instructive display
of her own acquirements, there was a flut
ter amongst the visitors, and word was
whispered that Mrs. Casely had arrived
and had brought Lord Dunover with her.
And there, sure enough, was Mrs. Casely
with a tall, white-haired, aristocratic old
gentleman, coming right down upon the
little party. There was not time to get
away from little Laure and that horrid
nurse Gertrude, when Mrs. Casely met
them and Introduced his lordship. Dun
over bowed stiffly, but suddenly catching
sight of Miss Dalrymple, his face became
illumined with a smile of heart-felt pleas
ure, and exclaiming, "What, Gertie, my
dear, you here!" he took her by both
hands and kissed ber pretty Hps. Then
turning to Mrs. Casely, he said:
"Mrs. Casely, let me introduce yoc o
my niece a little democrat who almost
shakes my class prejudice, for she prefers
independence as a hospital nurse to shar
ing the fallen fortunes of her family."
Then It was known that Mlas Dalrym
ple was actually the niece of an earl.
And she and Laure spent a week at
Casely Manor, where Mrs. Yeames and
her "superiah" set had never been allow,
ed to stay longer than half an hour.

Straight lines and square plots so
desirable In the laying out of fields are
not the most desirable for the home

the driveways take away the stiffness

For shipping live poultry to market
tho following sizes of coops are most
generally used In the West: Coops

and nine pieces 12 or 1" Inches long for
each coop. Nail the short pieces one at
each end and one In the center of the
long ones, using ten-penny wrought
nails. Make three of these frames, one
for each end and center. For tho bot
tom use half-Inch lioards or lath, make
tho lwttom tight, using six-penny nails.
Use 6x2-Inch strips of lath for sides,
ends nnd top, put them lVj Inches
apnrt; the width of lath Is about right.
Leave two laths loose on top In center,
or make a door of them to open, In
order to put poultry In and take It out.
Now nail a lath around the cooiw, each
end and the center, outside, the three
frames made first. This will keep the
lath from coming off and make the
coops stronger. For broilers the coops
can be made 10 Inches high and 21 Inch-
