AN UNTOLD SECRET,
THERE was no question of John's devotion. Annie, in a shy way showed she liked him. Aunt Harm thought the match a good one, and told one or two intimate friends; then some one said they were engaged. When the young folks heard this it nearly broke the thing up and we wouldn't have had this story to tell, but after* awhile John began calling again in a way that meant business. Finally when he asked her, she said yes, and soon the moonlight walk and late hours ended in orange blossoms, four bridesmaids, and all the fixings. Then came the little house and all the bliss of the honeymoon. My, how time flew! Somehow it seemed to Annie as if she had lost a month, the first three went so quickly. She had her doubts anyway'. The girl at this time demanded more wages and left. Annie cooked for a week. Then the new girl came. She had to be broken in, and although John did his best to comfort her, he felt Annie was losing her interest in him. They had a quarrel one day. John cams back at noon to make up, but Annie had gone over to see her mother. Aunt Maria declarer! John must be told, and when they had finished supper and Annie had placed the big chair before the fire she seated herself on the arm. She did not know exactly how to begin; both had forgotten the quarrel. John was talking about business. Finally he hoped little wifey was happy in their new home. Then she told him. Next morning John went down to the office whistling Softly to himself thoughtful bat proud.
Time flew. Aunt Maria said she thought the young people were a little inconsiderate when the wedding expenses were not all paid, but she began to embroider and sew in spite of her opinion. John wanted the famous Dr. Fitz Morell, but Annie's mother said old Dr. Kindly had treated the family for twenty-four years, and that with Aunt Maria on hand there ?was no need of extravagance. John protested, but they left him out of all discussions and took charge of the affair. John went down town mad, but got some fine old wine. It cost him two dollars and a half a bottle. When he got home he found it was to be saved for Christmas, and that the doctor had sent up two dozen bottles of "Best" Tonic, and said he would call again in a month. Later John bought a patent nursing-bottle and hid it until needed. Then he was going to surprise them When he was invited in to see the boy? it was a boy? he held out the bottle. Baby dropped it and it smashed all to pieces, and
then set up a howl for its mother. He got plenty to keep him going without the bottle, and
Annie still takes the tonic whenever she needs it. (The boy was named John.)
