SELECTED STOTT*. From tlie Overland Monthly. Cousin Geoffrey. “Geoffrey! listen to me.” “I am listening, Helen.’ . ... r want “Well, put down that stupid pape , to tell you something.” Jn the juxnri He obeyed her, ,e1a"*”?ieVi11 y awaiting fur ic thee But it was the tired, tired, blue eyes which arrested your attention, and interested you in spite of yourself. Wonderful eyes they werc_eycs with such beautiful possibilities in them, they might have belonged to a hero or a saint, instead of, as now, betraying only the utter wearying of a blase man of the world. The little Helen of ten years ago had put that look into words, when she said: “Cousin Geoffrey’s eyes always look as if they were saying. ‘Oil, come, now—let’s rest!’ ” Geoffrey Howard, with his fascinating pres ence, thirty-five years of age, and empty purse, was the admiration of all girls newly brought out, and the terror of worthy “ma mas intent on settlements.” His face ex pressed an unusual amount of interest as he sat watching the girl before him. A perfect contrast to himself, there was still a strong likeness between them; not so much in out ward form, for the girl was small, with jet black hair and large, dark eyes, flashing lire at on i moment, then filled with deep tremu lous s.illness the next. A tender, passionate face, and llie impatient tapping of the small slippered foot, betrayed a temperament at total v&rience with the quietude of her cous * in; a;;d vet, there was a likeness—“the How ard look,” Geoffrey called it. “Well, ma oeue, wnai is nr - Helen had turned to the window, and was gazing into the street; not that there was anything to be seen, for it was a foggy after noon in London, and the street lamps were already lighted. Twisting a piece of paper round her finger, she said abruptly: “Geof frey, do you remember Sir George Linton ?” “Of course I do; one couldn’t well forget him after the way he hung round vou at the Merton’s, last Christmas.” “Do you know how much he has a year?” “No, really; I didn’t make it my business to inquire. Do you?” “Yes,” she answered, shortly, “I did make it my business to inquire, or, rather, mamma did. He has five thousand now, and will have as much more when his uncle dies— which will be soon, mamma rays.” “Indeed! Very comfortable. Well ?” “Well, he has asked mo to marry him— that’s all. A sudden contraction of the smooth, white brow was the only evidence of surprise or dis pleasure. There was none in the quiet voice which asked: “And what does your mother say?” “Say ? Why, that, as I have been brought heio for the sole purposo of selling myself to the highest bidder,it is more than folly to delay an instant, now the chanoe has come,” was the bitter answer. “Well, Aunt Ju is about light, as she gen erally is. Don’t you think so, Helen?” No answer came from the quiet figure at the window—only the same intent gaze, with eyes that saw nothing, into the foggy, gloomy street. Geoffrey Howard rose, and went over to her. “Nellie!” A quick sob answered him. “Nellie! you know I would marry you myself if I could; but I can’t. Four hundred a year doesn’t half keep me, and it certainly couldn’t keep us. both—vou know this, Nel lie.” An impatient movement of her hand show ed him she was listening. He stood there be side her—the only woman he had really lov ed—looking out into the darkening street. Once again he went over his position, which Coded with a sigh, as all previous “goings ov er” had done. Handsome, and with rather more than average talents, he was a very wel come guest at country houses; indispensable at picnics, croquet parties, and balls—“just tbe man to make things go off well”—deelar ed his friends’ invitations came to him by tho hundred; his bill for lodgings was a mere nothing. Married, all this would be changed. Hi* peerless Nellie in a print gown, and him self in a last years cut, was not a pleasing picture to contemplate. “Nellie!’’—and his long slender hand turn ed the carefully-averted face towards him— “Nellie! look at me.” She obeyed, gazing steadily at him, till, suddenly, the dark eyes filled with passionate tears, and, with anoth er quick, painful sob, she buried her face in her hands. Nellie! you know I love you; but you sec how useless it is to wait for fortune to take pity on us. You are now twenty-two; this is your second season. Aunt Ju oo«Wn’t be made to see any reason for refusing Sir George. You know this, Nellie ?' ’ “I do, Geoffrey.” Who could have guessed, in the silence that followed, that all the light was being stricken ont of these two lives ? “When will Sir George come for his an swer?” “To-night. He goes with us to the Kings leys.” * “Is he coming to dinner?” “Yes.” “Shall you see him before ?” “No, after.” Silence again; broken,' at last, by ntlen rising. “I am going to dress now, Geoffrey. You go to the Kingsleys’, of course ?” They were very much alike now; the same wearied voice—the same tired look in the tearless eyes raised to his. He let her pass hiin'without seeking to de tain her; but as she ,reached the "door he stretched out his arms with a sudden passion ate cry—“Nellie!” Sbe came to him at once—placed both arms about his neck, and clung to him, with a choking sob—“Geoffrey! Geoffrey!” He put her away, at last, very gently. “Nellie! my poor little darling! Alwavs remember that I loved you—that I loved you!” Geoffrey Howard’s musings were very pain lul, as he sat alone in bis aunt's handsome drawing-room. One by one he had seen his cousins “brought out” and well-married. He had aided his aunt in her designs, and rejoic ed with her when, one after another, Kate, Julia, and Laura had conferred their beauty and accomplishments on men of rank and wealth. Handsome, dashing girls they were and very proud he had been of them; but Nellie—his pet from the time when she used to escape from her governess to beg him to have tea with her in the school-room—was quite another thing. How could he give her up? But what was he to do? he asked him self, helplessly. What, indeed? And Nellie? As long as she could remem ber, she bad heard a good marriage spoken of as the highest aim in life. Her sisters had dressed, aanced, and smiled to win that prize —and had won it. “The dear girls were so sensible,” her mother said, complacently. She herself had been left entirely to the care of servants, until Laura’s marriage turned her mother’s attention to her only remaining (laughter. “If dear nelen were only well married,” she remarked, confidentially, to Geoffrey. “I should be perfectly happy—my duty in life would he done.” Brought up in the midst of all this worldli ness, Helen had still retained enough natural delicacy to b3 disgusted with the plotting and planning her mother delighted in. Her father she rarely saw. She had no intimate friend of her own sex, so to “Cousin Geoff rey” every pleasure, every trouble, great and small, wai brought. From her earliest recol lection he had been the hero of her dreams. At every call or assemDly ner step was lighter and her voice gayer when she caught sight of those tired blue eyes watching her, and his cool “’Pon my word, Nellie, you are look ing well to-night,” the beautiful Miss How ard was the theme of every tongue.’’ And now—what now? She dared not think. Apathetically, she endures dressing, only rousing herself to refuse, decidsdly, the aoiipeon of rouge the French woman begged permission to lay on her white checks. At last she was ready; there was no fur ther excuse for delay; she must descend to the parlor drawing-room, where she knew Sir George Linton had already arrived. “Put some color about me—quick; I look like a bride!” she half gashed, as she caught a glimpse of her white silk dress in the mir ror. “This, Mademoiselle?” “No, no: not that!” a P*nk camellia—Geoffrey’s favorite noon?’ he had brought it to her that alter George0<Linton,e door’ » fo°tman with “Sir for Ckwa*d^’Went8’ and 6°mU asserted, asy3ke'n^’te®a.deinoi,pi'<>>” Annette roses in the soft, dark .7 • heavy crimson Helen assented wear?!. . sigh that to wear Gcoflrev’’. ."““Mug with a “the thing” no longer. y *Can>c'lia was now Her mother looked at her entered the drawing-room ,,',loUs'y as she greeting to Sir Geoige. ’ ',1DBher cool “Surely, Helen could not bo , refuse him,” she thought. ma<1 ai to Geoffrey, too, watched her uucasly n extreme pallor and trembling hands trouble him. Noticing that she ate nothing i,? pushed her wine glass toward her, saying quietly, “Drink that, Nellie.” His move ment was unnoticed by any one, and Helen, meeting the warning glance in his sorrowful eyes, by a great effort stilled her throbbing pulses, and regained her cold, rather haughty manner. nrh«nW«f^ 10 a']> especially to Geoffrey when theladle8 left the table. door for the™, he care rt?!rnrh b«r ?.^ rg « Helen-he would not h!«?eyes mu^tel/hor.nd COmp°S',rc ^ T' bat “Sir George will soon join you—of course you will accept him?’’ said her moXr? rither'fearfully, as they passed through the f ii Helen’s quiet “Of course,’ reassured her and it was with an excitant heart that slie’ascended to her dressing-room, on pre tence of a forgotten glove. Yery quietly Helen gave Sir George his answer. Very quietly she listened to his lovelike rhapsodies. Could he have known how far away her thoughts were wandering, his face would have been a shade less bright. It was not till Geollrey’s voice was heard in the hall that she seemed conscious of what was passing; then snatching away the hand she had passively permitted Sir George to retain, she withdrew to the further side ot the fire place. IL The Kingsleys’ ball was the finest of the sea son; and Helen danced, and charted, and smiled, the gayest of the gay. Her engage ment was soon whispered from one to another, calling forth the usual amount of comment. Disappointed dowagers con soled themselves with the reflection that now that “the beautiful Miss Howard” over whose hair, and eyes, and hand, and smile, fhe male element in their little world had been ravine for the past few weeks, was fairly out of the war, their own less attractive daugh ters would have the better chance.. The nu merous young ladies who had angled unsuc cessfully for the rich baronet, now murmured in corners that “Sir George wasn’t half so handsome as he used to be, poor fellow.” “After all, hazel eyes are not so very wonder ful.” “And den’t you think, dear, his hair is just the least bit red ?” Sir George Linton pleaded for an early marriage. Helen seemed to have no wish in the matter; so before the town began to be deserted, a splendid bridal train swept up the isle of the fashionable parish church, and more beautiful than ever, in her bridal robes, with the Linton diamonds in her dusky hair, Helen Howard calmly spoke the words which bound her to the noble, loving man at her side, whom as yet she scarcely knew. now lovely tne dear girl looked I’ ex claimed Mrs. Howard, wiping • imaginary tears from her eyes with a priceless lace hand herehief. Geoffrey assented—driving off to his club with the vision of his Nellie’s parting smile ever before his eyes. “Poor little Nel lie 1” he soliloquized, as he threw down the evening paper, which failed to distract his at tention from that one sorrowful subject. “I’m very fond of Aunt Ju, but I couldn’t do what she has done. Far better this, though, than the toothless old marquis. Bah! I wonder what my respected aunt is made of! She knew the old sinner as well ns I do. My poor little girl, I saved you from that, but I lost you myself.'’ And Geoffrey swallowed his brandy aud seltzer with a very heavy sigh. He was weak, not wicked, and it comforted him a little when ho remembered that Sir George Linton was a man well calculated to win any woman’s love, and might in time win Nellie’s. _ “You will come to us for the hunting?” Sir George had said, as he shook his hand at parting. So Geoffrey found himself at Linton Court in the early part of December. Helen was looking extremely well, and moved among her numerous guests with a grace and dignity peculiarly her own. What her feelings were he could not discover. In fact, Helen did not know herse'.f. Day by day she learned more of the noble ness of the man she had been unjust enough to marry. She had not added falsehood to her injustice, however, for she told him that she dij not love him—that she never had,and his answer had been: “I love you so truly, Helen, that I am sure you will love me some time ; and for that time I will try to wait pa tiently.” I She was thinking of his words as she stood at the dining room window, watching the heavy clouds moving lazily through the sky. Most of her guests were still lounging over their morning toilets, although Sir George and those ofliis friends who were fond of risking their necks, had long ago ridden off to the meet. Suddenly Geoffrey appeared, rid ing hastily up the avenue; something in his face frightened her. She was at his side as as he entered the room. “What is it, Geoffrey?” “Nothing of any moment, Nellie. Sir George’s horse stumbled— He was just in time to save her from falling. As he placed her in >. chair, she grasped his hand. “Tell me, Geoffrey, is he dead?” “Not nearly, you foolish child—if you had only let me finish—his left arm is broken, and set again by this time, for I left him at the surgeon’s. He wanted me to ride on and tell you, but I declare I’ve made bad worse—he’ll be all right in no time.” “Are you sure, Geoffrey?” Steps were heard in the hall. “Here, Lin ton, I can’t persSade Helen that you are not killed; come and see what you can do.” And Geoffrey considerately withdrew, closing the door after him, to prevent the intrusion of the now alarmed guests. Did any one notice that it was only the lips that smiled? In the tired eyes there was only pain, and bitter, hit ter regret. cu-ta-"pm. slance at his wife’s pale face to assure him that the time he had waited for had come. And Helen as she felt the clasp of his strong right arm, rec ognized, with a thrill ot thankfulness, the fact that she loved her husband. “Cousin Geoffrey, what does mamma mean by saying she hopes soon to see you in Paris ?” asked Helen a few mornings later, as she re folded a letter just received from Mrs. How ard. Geoffrey made a grimace. “It means, my dear Helen, that Aunt Ju has picked out a countess for me, who, she declares, is already devotedly attached to me. I’ve seen her. She has a skin like parchment beady eyes, a voice like a parrot, and more francs than she knows what to do with. How ever, I’ll go to see Aunt Ju, at any rate.” Aud off'Godfrey went, promising to return in the spring. , Gallons of ale were flowing, and an ox was roasted whole, in the park at Linton Court. A bonfire crackled and blazed on the vil lage green, and the bells were tumbling in merry fashion, to give voice to the great re joicing for an heir was born to the Lintons of Linton, and joy and hope were playing bo peep through the long corridors and in the lofty rooms of the great house. The evening was sultry in Paris, and the kindly young English physician looked pity ingly at the pale, beautiful face ofhis patient, turned so wearily to the casement. “How long will I live, do you think?” “Months, I hope; weeks, at all events.” Geoffrey Howard sighed. “Travers, tell me the truth, will I live to get back to England?” “I think so. You cannot travel now, but when the weather gets a little cooler, I will go with you myself.” “I thank you, Travers. I hate Paris now; you don't know how I long for one breath of cool, sweet English air—one sight of dear, fa miliar faces.” “Howard, I cannot disguise the fact that you may die at any time—heart disease is so uncertain—but I will do my best for you.” “Heart disease!” and he smiled, a little bitterly. “Are you quite sure, Travers, that I have enough of that article to be diseased ?” A light breeze stirred the curtains. The quiet stars came out one by one. The soft chanting of the nuns in the neighboring chapel came sweetly through the twilight still ness. And whille at Linton Court the re joicing waxed louder and louder, here, in hot, gay Paris, Geoffrey Howard slept the quiet, dreamless sleep of a child. “A letter for you, Helen.” The post-bag had just come in, and Sir George Linton tossed a letter, with the Lon don postmark, across the breakfast-table to his wife. The writing was familiar, though strangely irregular and feeble-looking. She opened Jt quickly. It contained only these words: “T am dying. May I come to you, Nellie? Traverse will bring me. Your consin, Geoffhey.” n uu a suuueu Durst oi tears, sne Handed it to her husband. They read it in silence. He knew the history of these two hearts. When he did speak, it was to say, quietly, “Have a room ready for him Helen; I am go ing up to town for him this afternoon.” Geoffrey came—a little paler, a little thin ner jfrrfjNtlgibrc; the tired eyes still a little rv.- -i^iTaricd. “I couldn’t go the Countess, Nellie,” were among the first words, uttered with a flash of his old smile, but he made no reference to the future they all knew was so near. One by one the leaves withered and flutter ed to the ground. Day by day Geoffrey’s step grew weaker, and his voice fainter. The room he liked best was Helen's morning room, and there each day found him. One evening she was sitting beside him with her baby on her lap. He lay quietly watching the amber and r6d fade out of the sunset sky. “Nellie, do you see that linden?” he said, suddenly. “All the leaves are gone but one; tlnft will fall to morrow.” , Helen shivered. The quiet voice went on: “Nellie, do you remember that afternoon in London when you told me about Sir George? Then, for the first time I felt this pain that is killing me. Travers says I have had the dis ease for years, but I never felt it till then. I might have worked for you, liltle girl, mightn’11 ? But I never thought of that; it was too late then. Nellie, I’ve wanted to tell you I’m glad you are so happy. You mustn’t cry, darling! I’ve been tired so long, perhaps, because I felt I might have been something, and I wasn’t. Do you remember, Nellie!’—he went on dreamily—“that wreck on the coast of Wales?

Sister of Charity, Travers brought1}1 tUe iitt,<! She talked to me a great deal about” me,? He paused, and Helen slipped her handXto hie. “Traverse read me something in that about ‘rest.’ You'll find it marked, Nellie.” Helen opened the little Testament, and read, falteringly. Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” The sky was all gray now, save for ouc golden shaft. A beam fell on Geoffrey’s face, lighting up its wonderful beauty. His lips moved: “I’d like that, Nellie—‘rest!’” and the tired blue eyes closed forever. A plain white marble cross stands in a sun ny corner of the Linton churchyard, and there, one summer afternoon, Helen is sit ting, and, as her children gather round her, she tells theai of the friend of her youth, the cousin of whose memory their father speaks so tenderly. And the soft, sweet eyes grow moist as they listen to the story of his death, in quiet autumn twilight, and the little rev erent hands touch lovingly the grassy mound. Sir George has joined the group, and places in his wife's hand a fair pink camellia, with its buds and glossy leaves—Geoffrey’s flower. With a sob, Helen lays it upon the grave. “Did you love him very much, mamma?” lisps little Geoffrey, nestling his curly head upon her arm. And Helen, with a trusting glance at her tall husband, answers, “Yes.” HENRY CLEWS & CO., 32 WALL STREET, NEW YORK, Offer fftr wale a limited uuaibcv of the FIRST MORTGAGE 7 PER CENT, CON VERTIBLE SINKING FUND GOLD BONDS — OF THE — Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Min nesota Railway Line.
