enced reverses in business and found himself financially embarrassed. The
letter was full of well-worded contrition for his hasty acceptance of his release
from their engagement, and stated that he should follow up the letter with a
personal appeal if she would consent. Very cautiously he also inquired if among
her father's papers there were any bonds of a certain railroad, worthless, as he
explained, but which might be made available at a very low figure toward re-
organizing the road. If she would take the trouble to look them up, he would
be able to offer a small sum — five hundred or so, for what had cost ten thou-
sand dollars !

Nerva had not developed so much business talent during the past four
years for nothing, a talent no doubt inherited from her father and which would
undoubtedly have remained dormant but for the necessity that brought it out.
Before replying she reflected. She believed her former lover to be mercenary
and heartless. Of this she had had ample proof. Why this solicitude on his
part concerning the bonds ? Questioning her father, she obtained such in-
formation as he could recall with much effort, for a haze still hovered over his
intellect. Correspondence with a former legal friend of the family ensued, and
the result was that the hitherto supposedly worthless bonds were exchanged
for their face value in cash.

Nerva had now ample capital for the development of her enterprise, and
she invested it wisely.

Again and again in quick succession she had been importuned by her for-
mer lover for the privilege of a personal interview, but she had answered eva-
sively. Perhaps there was a spirit of retaliation brewing in the quiet little
lady's heart. Perhaps it was something else. At any rate, confidential con-



178 NERVA.

sultation with Leslie Burton was of frequent occurrence, and if that individual
only had eyes to see, he might have seen that Nerva had a deeper interest in
him than she would have had in a mere adviser.

But Leslie was so deeply impressed with her superiority that he dared not
even permit himself to think of her as ever holding any other relation to him
than as a friend. Besides, he did not understand women. Books he could
read, but women were sealed books to him.

Nerva saw that if her plan was to be carried out — for she had thought out
a plan — she would have to, Priscilla like, offer some encouragement that could
not be misunderstood.

Putting on her hat and a light wrap one sunny afternoon late in October,
she set out, basket in hand, in search of chestnuts. Perhaps she did not know
that Leslie was finishing up some fall seeding in a field adjoining the chestnut
grove. It might have been a coincidence, of course. Perhaps it was her
eagerness to obtain chestnuts that caused her to throw stones and sticks with
all a woman's proverbial dexterity up into a tree in full view of the young
farmer. Perhaps it was mere gallantry that made the young farmer afore-
said hasten across the field, climb up the tree like a squirrel and shake the
brown nuts from their prickly burs with his strong arms. Perhaps it was fear
that she would injure her delicate hands with the sharp burs that made him
stop, in spite of her protestation, to help fill her basket. Perhaps when this
had been done and they stood at the barway together, it was her respect for
him as a counselor that made her, somewhat shyly, request his advice on a
very delicate subject.

"I have had an offer of marriage," she said, "and you have been so good
an adviser and so kind a friend that I wish to obtain your opinion about it."

Poor Leslie turned pale an instant and then flushed a bright crimson. He
could have sunk in his tracks. It was easy to persuade himself that he did
not care for his pretty, confiding neighbor, but standing here as a disinterested
judge on the merits of another man — that was another matter. Of course, she
did not appear to notice his confusion.

" If I only dared !" he thought.

But he stammered out something about his inability to advise in such a
case. She must consult her own heart.

"That is just the trouble," she said. "I do not love the man. He has
proved false to me once, but now professes to be very penitent. Indeed, my
regard has gone out for another and a worthier man, but he does not — at least
he has never spoken."

She was almost frightened at her boldness. But it was a desperate case

Leslie was not a coward. Who this other man was he could not guess.
But something was choking him. A great lump was crowded into his throat,
and he must speak or die !

" Miss Smith," he finally stammered. " I — I know I ought not to say it.
I — T know you will despise me after it, you who are so far above me; you who
seem to me as much above me as the stars (once his tongue was loosened he
waxed eloquent); but I must speak even if you spurn me and never speak to
me again in all your life. Miss Smith — "

" You may call me Nerva, Leslie," said she gently, raising her hand which
somehow came in contact with his and was seized with the grip of a vice.



A MIDNIGHT SONG. 179

"Then you don't hate me ?" he asked eagerl)'.

" No indeed !"

"And you won't think me a fortune hunter who cares nothing for you but
your money ?"

" No, Leslie, particularly as I have no fortune. It is because we have lost
nearly everything that we are here. I am worth no more than you are, but
you are worth more to me than — "

■When she recovered her breath she exclaimed, "You are a great bear,
Leslie !" But she didn't seem to be displeased.

Leslie's horses, tired of waiting for their driver, had dragged the harrow
to which they were attached across the field and were industriously grazing
upon the headland at the margin of the field. It was a long time before they
were disturbed.

Mr. and Mrs. Burton now make their winter home in the city, but spend
the greater part of the year on their united farms at Indian Hollow. The
father's intellect and health being fully restored, he devotes his declining years
to the care of his two lovely grandchildren — two as rugged, healthy, romping
little urchins as one could find in the country.

On every Thanksgiving day the entire family gather aroimd the well-filled
board at Weston farm. I say the entire family, for the elder daughter, whose
career as a countess came to a disastrous end by the squandering of her own
and her mother's fortune by her titled but dissolute husband, was only too
g-lad, with her humbled and repentant mother, to accept the hospitality of a
home they would once have spurned.

So, on every Thanksgiving day, the entire family gather round the festive
board and devoutly thank God for the restoration of family ties brought alDt)ut
through the restoration of an abandoned Connecticut farrn.



A MIDNIGHT SONG.



BY MINNIE LOUISE HENDRICK



I awaked at midnight, through the city streets
Came the sound of music rare and sweet.
The song was of love, and rest, and peace,
Like an angel's song to a restless throng,
It fell on the city's star-lit streets,
Like a benediction, so complete;
It filled my heart with song.
