THE MORNING ASTOMAN ASTOR1& OREGON.
A Breach of Coiifideiicie
Why her fathr and mother didn't
five her the name of Mcphlatophelln
intend of Jnquellne I can't Imagine.
They certainly would have done no
had they known bow alio wan to turn
ont An it In, nobody ever call her
anything but Jack, and In epeaklng of
her to those who have never eoeu or
known her one necesHarlly convey
the Idea that he Im a boy not only a
Iwy, hut n boy of tho womt kind.
The way the ha treated tne and
her Muter certainly dcnerveN ft hundred
Inulm, and 1 would like to bo tho fel
low to lay them on. I have always
bwn taught to connidcr one who would
'betray a confidence a wortto than a
thief. Jack betrayed our confidence
lu tho moot unuliwhtog manner. It all
happened only yeiiterday, and pcrhnp
I'm not In n condition to look upon her
act with charity. I hope I'll never
come Into a frame of mind to exenxo
her abominable treachery.
It wan thin way:' Mr. Merrynmn
wanted bit daughter-hut eldest daugh
ter, Ilnrrlot-to marry somo bin gun.
Ho had no objection to mo other than
that I wa neither prenldent, member
of the cabinet nor one of the Justice
of tho United State supreme court
Harriet had tried to got hie consent to
marry me, but he always put ber off
by eaylng, "What do you want to mar
ry a man for who couldn't even net a
email rivulet afire, let alone a river?"
Then Harriet would expatiate on my
good KenMo,- good heart and n good
many other thing that blagun don't
generally posses, eKpeclitlly the good
heart for they are usually diabolically
eolflxh. nut her father only laughed
How wo ever camo to tako Jack Into
our confidence when we came to an
agreement to eloe I don't ktiow. Har
riet thought alio couldn't wako her
preparation without Jack' kuowlug
of them, but I rather put It down to
tho fact that he nuiHt tell Rome one.
At any rate, he told her. Jack clap
ped her hand, and her eye glistened
with glee. An elopement! How ro
mantlet Just too lovely for anything!
Rhe'd help ua all sho could, and, a for
keeping the aecret, It would tie burled
away down In ber gulleleNN heart.
, We didn't need anything especially
elaborate-no rope ladder, fast team,
and all that We concluded Just to
board a train, go up tho road Rome
thirty mlh? to where a former family
dominie, Mr. Strickland, lived and get
him to marry u. Wo would go In the
morning, take the afternoon train back
and be forglvon In tlino for dinner. Of
course I engaged the parson for a
pectfled day and hour. Jack woa In
tensely Interested In It all and made us
livelier everyjjetajl, projnlRlng to pre-
pnre tier ptrtfiM; "MfT MS Mr7 M6Try.
twin, for what wa to come, o that It
wouldnH ho much of a shock,
' Harriet met me In the open square
near the station. She was trembling
all over, but 1 reasmirod her. To avoid
observation we went to where thd fore
most car would stand on the track
when tho train came In. We got away
on time and had the satisfaction to bo
In a car that wa nearly empty. Tho
train stopped at tho next station on
the road a mile beyond. There the
door opened, and I beard a familiar
girl' voice say: "Come In here.
There' lot of room in to! car."
I turned with a rubadub heart to ace
whom do you suppose? Jack beckon
ing tot her father and mothor, who
were mounting to tbe car platform.
There they all three bustled Into tho
car we were In, Jack exclaiming:
"Goodness gracious, If there Isn't
IIat! And, 1 declare, Ben tool Where
In the world are you two going?"
Tho astonishment of the father and
mother wo very much overdone. It
didn't deceive either of u. I glanced
at Jack and avoided mocting the eye
of tho parent. Mr. Merrynmn seemed
overjoyed that our parties should have
met on what be called an Improvised
excursion, ne asked me where we
were going, and It wa no use to lie,
for my ticket would give me away. So
1 told him. and he wa delighted that
we were all going to tbe same place.
Of the two halve of the party one
wa Jubilant, tbe other mad and mor
tified. We were obliged to spend an
hour and a half in this way before
reaching our destination. There we all
got out, and Jack proposed a stroll.
8ho walked with her father, while
her mother walked with us. Tho little
villain led the way to the parsonage,
stopped before tho door and proposed
a call on the parson. Without waiting
for consent, she rang tbe bell, and w
all went In. Tbe parson was expecting
us, but since I had told him we would
be nlono he wa n trifle surprised,
"Ttils would lie a good time for you
and Hat to get spliced," said Jack to
The dominie got his. book and waited
for us to take position. What conld
we do? I didn't know what Mr. Mer
rymnn was going to do, but since he
made no move I took Harriet before
the clergyman, and wo were marrle-'.
Mr. and Mrs. Merrynmn came up. give
me n hand and embraced their daugh
ter. Harriet dldn'T know whether to
burst Into tenrs at having had her con
fldence so abused or to rejoice flint she
did not have-to go back and ask her
When Mr. MrVyman put n check for
SlO.ooo in her band. Joy triumphed.
We took the afternoon train back,
reaching home In time for a h-ity
meal. afffr which our most Intlmat"
friends came injuring In for a wedding
reception. They bad been Invited pre
