affections of the heart, attended by Ir

LAURENCE MAYHEW was the
quietest of all the traveling man
connected with the firm of Knight,
Powers 4 Co. the most prosaic, un
sentimental, matter-of-fact fellow
one would find in a month's search.
So when Horace Worth, another
drummer for the same house one
raw, chilly day in March, chanced to
step into FranU Karter'a, the florist's,
just in time to hear Mr. Mayhew say:
"Now, Mr. Karter, do not fail to get
the violets off by to-day's express.
Same address aa usual, you have it, I
suppose. And here, put this card in
the box; my train leaves in 15 min
utes, or I would stay until you got
them packed," and when Worth acci
dentally saw that the card bore the
Inscription: "To my darling, with a
heart's best love Laurence," to put
It mildly, he was astonished.
"Hello, old fellow," said he, "send
ing violets to your best girl, eh?"
"Yes, I thought they would surely
be appreciated such a dismal day as

ever suspect of being guilty of falling

"At any rate," laughed Mayhew, "In
thia liiHtnnee I eonfesa It la true, I am
'hit hard,' aa you say, and my 'best
girl' is the dearest girl on earth," and
he hastened away to the depot, where
his sample case had preceded him.
Worth had only entered the employ
of Knight, Towers A Co. six months
before, but during the time he hud
met Mnyhew several times and had
liked him from the first, mentally
dubbing him a good fellow, with a
keen sense of humor, ready to take
or give a joke in his quiet way, but
seldom entering into the story-telling
of his brother knights of the grip,
when as wns (K't-nximiully the ruse

several trips; unil he hnd never been

had met, nr flirted with, as some of
the others were wont to do. So the

the memory of Horace Worth, who,
although u voluble, easy-going man,
was kind hearted almost to a fault,
and poNxuesed of a strict aense of
Two months later Mr. Worth hap
pened to be spending Sunday nt a
amall town some 50 miles out from
the city. Saturday evening the la
dies of one of the churches were
serving Ice cream and strnwlirrries in
a hull nenr the hotel where Worth
was stopping, and to while away an
idle hour us much us to help in a
good cause, he strolled In about nine
o'clock, and took a seat at one of the

up by large gray eyes, and crowned
with a wealth of hnir, once dark
brown, but now thickly threaded
with silver. 'Hie rush of the earlier
part of the evening being over, he
was the only one at that table, while
disposing of the daintily served re
freshments the little woman brought
in response to his mpicst; so, seeing
that he was u stranger in town, niul
seemed to know no one, she renin hied
by the table pleasantly chatting in a
manner that showed her to be a Indy
ill every aense of the word.
Soon some one culled, "Oh, Mrs.
Mayhew. please rouie here a minute,"
and saying "Kiouse me," she has
r'ive minutes later she returned,
Mr. Worth not jet having paid for
his refreshments. As he handed her
the amount lie said: "1'ardon me, but

familiar one to me, as another trav

Quickly smiling, she said: "Oh, do
you know Laurence? Why, he ia my
husband. I am glad, sir to meet a
friend of his; may I ask your name?"
"Horace Worth, at your service,"
replied he, bowing, "but you surprise
me. 1 diil not know that Mr. Mayhew
had married; may I inquire how long
aince the happy event took ulnce?"
ROGUE RIVER COURIER, GRANTS
"Did not know that Laurence was
married? That Is strange," laughed
aba; "yet perhaps not strange), either,

will soon be as tall aa I am, 1 could
hardly realize It had been so long by

rily. It was with difficulty that Horace
restrained hia astonishment, and as
the scene t the florist's two months
before flashed across his mind, hia In
dignation knew no bounds. Hut by
.(Tort he quietly made a few more
n . , . . .
commonplace remarks, bade her good
night and returned to the hotel.
, "The scoundrel!" thought he, "to
' be untrue to such a fine little woman
aa that, and the mother of hia chil
dren, too, juat because he haa been at
tracted by the pretty face of some
young girl, while his wife's hair la

He sought his room and bed, but it
was nearly dawn before sleep visited
hia eyelids, ao wrought up was he
I over hia discovery of the evening. He
felt he ought to warn her, the poor
little, unsuspecting, wronged wife,
and yet he dreaded to be the execu
tioner of the love and trust with
which her face waa radiant while
apeaking of her husband. At length
he dropped into a troubled sleep, to
dream that Mrs. Mayhew, pale-faced
and wan, stood by his side piteously
"Oh, why didn't you tell me? If
you had it might have been in time
for me to have led him back out of
the snares that wicked girl laid for
him. And now he is gone, gone, and
my heart la broken!"
Late In the morning he ' awoke,
more Impressed than ever that it was
his duty to warn the wunged wife,
disagreeable though it might be. So
he secured writing materinl, and
after destroying sheet after sheet of
paper, he Anally composed a note in
which he told her, In as gentle a man
ner aa possible, of the episode at the
florist's, and closed by begging her
not to think ill of him for being the
bearer of such news, as he very
greatly regretted the necessity he
felt he was under to warn her, and
expresssing the hope that with her
knowledge of the affair, an influence
might be brought to bear that would
counteract any evil toile into which
bar husband had probably uncon
sciouslyfallen, and that happiness
might once again be hers. This note
he dispatched by the bell boy, about
the time he judged she might have
returned from church. A half hour
later a white Inclosure was handed in
at his door. He tore it open and
"Mr. Horace Worth Dear Blr: To say
that I wss amssed st tht contents of your
nott falls fur snort of expressing my feel
ings. If not seklng too much of you. will
you pleise call at my home at four o'clock
this afternoon? I appreciate your Intended
klndnw 1 reserve all else to say to you In
person. Sincerely yours.
The writing showed signs of agita
tion, and It was with quickly benting
heart that Mr. Worth presented him
self at Mrs. Mayliew s door, nt the
appointed hour. He was admitted by
the maid and shown Into the parlor,
where he was at once joined by Mrs.
Mnyhew. The pallid face and swollen
eyes, for which he wns prepared,
were absent. Instead she greeted him
with smiling countenance.
"Mr. Worth," said she, "I sent for
you, not - as you probably supposed
to question you farther concerning
my dear husband, but to free V"nr
mind from the unjust charges w'hieh
I give you the credit of honestly be
lieving. At llrst I was ungry over
your intimation, hut I believe you to
be n gentleman, and that yon took
the course tlwit you fn.m (.ise
of duty. Fifteen years ago the 2()th
of lust March we were married. On
that never to-be forpot ten day, I
wore a bunch of violets, and the
tuble where the simple luncheon wns
spread was decorated with the same.
Since thnt dny, the 20th of March
has never failed to bring from my
dear, thoughtful husband, n fragrant
cluster of violets; and two months
ago, ns usual, when he is absent nt
that time, there came by express a
box of the sweet Mowers, containing
thia enrd," and she held out the well
remembered bit of bristol bonrd. on
which was written, "To my dnrlinir,
with a heart's best love-Laurence."
"The next mail," continued ,e,
"brought his usual daily letter, in
which he told the joke of your sup
posing he was n bachelor, 'how you
asked if he wns sending flowers' to
his best girl, mid of his reply. That
in just like Laurence, to have a little
quiet fun at your expense, by never
correcting your erroneous supposi
tion. I hope yon will forgive him
for it, just u I have forgiven yon
for your slanderous tho.-'its of mv
hiisbiinil." and she: smilingly ex
tended her I'.iind.
Just how Mr. Worth mannced to
take her hand and bow over it, stam
mer out his sincere apologies, and
get out into the street, he never
could clearly remember. Hut it is a
fact that when he finally found ref
uge in his room at the hotel, he feel
ingly remarked to himself:
"I wish I had three feet, so I
eouni stand on two of them, and
wk mjHelt with u,, other!"-Lum-
