tragedies of the old South, enacted
'In WarrcntoB, where Beau Hickman

I born—and where Him Mary Jana
Beau Hickman was a hare to every
| boy in that good old town where noth
!ing happened from the cloeo of the

1’iucens and was a man of the world.

Because of him wa bed an especial
interest in Miss Mary Jans—a wrink
led, refined little pauper who would
cover admit her poverty. Mias Mary
Jane did not like children—they were
too inquisitive and too brutal in their
frankness. They too often invadod
the secret of her indigence. She had
been “teased” a room in the basement
of an old residence abandoned apon
the death at our grandmother, and
•he made all of her “purchaaca” from
W^clo William, who bad a big heart
. hidden somewhere about his anatomy

Mias Mary Jana waa very nrond.
site never went out without an old
knit shawl of floe texture, but sadly
worn; and sh* had a little bonnet of
flimsy material that fastened under
her trembling chin with black, faded
i ribbon. In her room aba had a trunk
. full of ante-bellum clothes—of silks
and heavy satins in pretty color* and
lovely trimming*. She used to take
these out and weep over them when
thought sh« teas alone. Mother
■aid they were clothes for a wedding
that never happened, but cautioned
i u» never to speak to Miss Mary Jane
W, can see her bow, tripping down
the hill that descended beside Gov
ernor Carr’s old homo, where a dead
Yankee soldier had been buried by
Ssermen’e Army when tt paaeed
through home after Johnston's sur
render at Durham. She used to panes
at the corner and how eondenseend

the news to her as gently as ka could.
And be performed nobly. Miaa Mary
Jane became rssigned to her fate,
and they took her away.
At the comity farm they gava her
a nice little cottage all to haraalf.
On her second day there all the good
old, slater* who wer* already there
; paid the usual call of courtesy. They
spent an hour with Miee Mary Jane,
and, in leaving, all of them extended
cordial invitations to her to visit
the®. Then the patrician part of
Mis* Mary Jane showed.
Very lundly the thanked them for
tho invitations; and very gently but
also very firmly she told them of the
greet gulf that lay between them.

muat let you know that however
kindly I may feel toward you, I can
never allow you to amoeiate with

So. Mm Mary Jana lived in sottte
try grandeur at th« poor houee—an
aristocrat, a patrician—reduced, It
was true, to the neeeasity of receiv
ing aim*, but undefeated still. And
so she died.
