Some Mojt buy plwo up lh. no
tion tbst there la a rent devil. 1 know
tbnt there Is, and I kuow It from tuy
oa experience, lie cut l"'u ue once
so bud that liefore I ruuUI get blin out
be had broken up the whole fainlljr. I
mean my family my Mark, myself
and our children.
Mark and I were brought up on ad
joining farina. He was the Ukellost
young mau lu the neighborhood, aud a
good many of the girls were trying to
get til id. Amelia Jones was the hun
griest of the lot for hi in aud was hound
that If she couldn't get him no ono else
should. 1 knew she was wniehlng hli"
like a cat. and the way I f.l.ml It out
was this: We were nt a cortihusklng.
She aud tnu Tomkius were slttlug on
the heap of corn to lx husked, and
Mark and I were sitting ueur them.
Mark struck red ear aud kissed uie.
Amelia was looking straight At us,
aud you should have soeu the look ou
bt-r fiice! It was Just as If a rattle
suake was colled for a spring.
I was a fool or I would after this
have known that she would strike tue
whenever she could. There was a barn
dance the evenlug before Thanksgiv
ing, and Murk dauced ueurly every
da nee with uie. Itut Amelia by this
time saw how matters were golug and
pretended not to care how they went.
But she wits working iigalust me Un
dettianded. She didn't dream, though,
that when Mark took me home from
the dance when Thanksgiving day was
dawning tu the east what he was say
ing to nie. But even If she bad known
It she'd have tried to break it up.
Mark and I were engaged Just one
year. Amelia tried a number of times
to make a break between us. but every
time we found out that she was at the
bottom of what was told Mark about
rue. and so there was no harm done.
Besides. Mark trusted me Implicitly.
We concluded to be married on
Tbanksslvlng day. Just one year from
the time when Mark asked uie to be
The summer before we were mar
ried Mark was building a house for us
to live In. An uncle bad given hlra a
little farm, but there was no house on
It. and Mark spent the whole summer
getting it re:idy. fie had a man to

belp blm till be got the-framework up.
Then he did the rest of It himself. We
planned it together, and I took tea
times the interest In It that I would
have taken if It had been built by
others. I was busy most of the time
making up what we would need In tho
wuy of bedding and table liuen.
The bouse wasn't quite finished by
Tbunksgiviug day. but It was fairly
comfortable. Resides, It was nice to
finish up ' when we were In It. We
were married Thanksgiving morning,
und I cooked our Brut Thanksgiving
dinner myself. Mark and I ate it
alone. We wanted to be alone. After
the children came we didn't wunt to
be alone, but we did at this first
Thanksgiving dinner. We ate together.
It whs a very happy day, but I don't
think It wns so happy us when we bad
a lot of little ones at the table with
us. Anyway, it wasn't the same kind
Ten years passed without any trou
ble whatever, then a lot of It all came
at once. A letter canto one day for
Murk addressed In a woman's band.
Either of us opened the family letters,
and I opened this mighty quick. It
was from some one I'd never beard of,
but was ull about things that bad been
happening between her and Mark for
a long while. I was so wild when I
read It I but I couldn't absorb any
thing In particular except the end.
which whs. "With a thousand kisses,
your loving," etc.
That was the time when (be devil
got Into me. I Just pinned the letter on
a cushion, look the children and went
right over to mother's, leaving a note
for Mark suylng I never wished to see
him again. As soon as I got quieted
down I th'ii"iit. after all. there was a
slight chance I hot (here might be some
mistake. Then I waited for Mark to
come and at least try to mnke an ex
planation. Rut Mark didn't come.
Then I whs frightened for fear he had
gone away wt-h the woman who bad
wrlttpn blm the letter.
I went to the bouse to see If be bad
left any message for me. I found tha
bouse Just as I had left It I went lu
ami looked about for u note. I did not
fluri anything at all from Mark. Tueu
It rushed over nit all at once what a
fool I bad tiern. 1 hud aluiply given
way to the other woman. I bad left
everything In a state of uueertatuty.
If I hud walled till Mark came homo
and showed him the letter he might
luive explained It. Aud yet I didn't see
how he could
Months pasted and nothing came
from Mark. One day In the next Octo
ber I wns walking along the fond when
who should I meet but Amelia Jones,
She wns un married aud had become a
skinny o'd maid with a sour face. Wis
ijliln't live near us any more, and I
hudu't ceu her for years. I doubt If
I should have known her had It not
been for the look she gave roe. It was
one of malicious triumph.
"Oh, for the hind's sake!" I cried.
"Whnt have I done? I've gone and
helped thnt viper to ruin me!"
I an It all now. She bad written
the letter that hml conm for Mark. I
could huve screamed. My first Impnlso
was to turn inul curse her. Rut she
had gone on, and I hesitated. In a few
minutes It occurred to nie that If I
charged her with the crime she would
only snll sway with her nose in I ho
air. It would i-omplcte her revenge.
I went heme and spout the rest of
the day crying. I thought over the
things about me she had contrived In
get to Mark's ears when we were en
rnsred and how he hud told me of
them. And how hnd I repaid him for
his confidence? I hnd simply played
Into our enemy's hands. Mark wits a
very high strung man. mid doubtless
u i. v action in leaving liliu without giv
ing him a chum e to say a word In ex
planation and my hnvlng considered
hi 'it guilty of the crime had killed his
love for me. If I could ouly know
where he had gone I would go to hi in
on my knees.
I lived In hopes thnt Mark would
some day come back to me, but he did
not. The houe remained Just as I had
left It Kvery Thanksgiving day I
would go there hoping thnt. It being
the anniversary of our wedding. Mark
would relent and come back there.
Hut he never came. There wus a
small Income from some property he
hml Inherited from his father, and
Mark before going away had given an
order that this Income should ! ald
to tue. So I didn't suffer for funds.
Mark had been gone five years, and
every year I bad gone to the house on
Thnnkselvlng morning hoping to find
him there. On the fifth anniversary I
determined to go there the evening
before Thanksgiving and sleep there.
I lighted a fire on the hearth and sat
In my little rocker thut I used to sit j
In beside Mark before that very '
hearth. I drew his own big easy chnlr
up beside me. And there I sat think-
Ing of blm and what a happy family ;
we had lwcn until I had broken It up ;
by my folly. I blamed myself alone !
for falling into such an open trap, j
And. thinking, I cried myself to sleep. .
I dreamed troubled dreams. First I
was back ut the husking with Mark. !
Amelia Jones wns sitting near us on j
the pile of unhusked corn looking at '
us. und her eyes seehicd like eouls of
fire. Then wo were walking along
the road running past the house. 1
Mark was bending over me, telling mo j
the story he had told me years before, j
Aud I said: "This Is uot renlly Mark. I
Murk went away, and I have never
xecn him since. And yet here ho Is
walking beside nie." I woke up from .
this dream, my heart bcutlug wildly.
I didn't wish to go to bed. I feared
1 would lie awake for hours. So I took ,
a book from a table neur me and rend.
Rut I fell uslcep agalu aud recoin- ,
inenced my dreaming. This time I j
dreamed Mark came In aud sat lu I
his chulr beside nie.
I awoke and what did I seel Why,
Mark really sittlug beside me. Ilod j
It not been for the reassuring suillo
on his face I should have thought that ,
what I saw wus his gliost. I sprang 1
toward him, aud be took nie in his ;
"Oh. Mark!" 1 cried. "Have ypu for- j
given me?" j
"Yes, I have forgiven you, and I j
have things to tell you. Wheu I came i
home and found you and the children '
gone, tho letter pinned to tho cushion'. I
I na w at a glance thnt Amelia Jones
had come up ufter a long silence to
strike us. 1 was uugry angry wltb
you for fulling into the trap, for not
huving confidence In mo. I determined
to go away forever.
"Rut I pined for my home, my wife
und my children. I wus about to come
buck when I was drawn Into a specu
lation. 1 concluded to wait for It to
make me rich before returning. It
took all I had put luto It. I tried an
other and another till recently I
struck what bus paid me. Then I re
sol ved to come back, forgive yon. ask
your forgiveness and unite our fam
ily." He went to the bureau, took the let
ter which hud been for Ave years on
the pincushion anil, bringing it back
with him. tossed it In the Hume.
"Rum!" he said, watching It as It
shriveled. "You have miide trouble
enough. It would be well If (hero were
a heavenly fire In which we could burn
all past disagreements."
' Oli. the happiness of that moment!
Though It whs lute, we went to moth
