EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
Light at Last
Mary had worked into a fanciful braid a slender tress of her glossy dark-brown hair, and while they talked, she fixed it into a small locket, and shut down upon it a glass cover.
"There, Paul," she said, when the work was done—"there is the lock of my hair, as you wished. It is a poor thing, but you will think of me when you look upon it." Paul took the locket and pressed it to his lips.
"I shall look upon it often, darling, and think, while I look of the dearest treasure for me this earth can hold.
"O, Paul!"
"Darling, don't weep. A few short months, and we will be happier than ever. I know I shall prosper. We shall suffer this separation as the seed is hidden in the ground. It is to be the germ of better things to come.
"I shall try and think so, Paul. I will think so." Paul found a piece of blue ribbon in Mary's work-basket, with which he suspended the locket about his neck, and when he had placed it once more to his lips, with a murmured blessing, he hid it away in his bosom.
By and by, they stood at the door locked in the parting embrace. Until long past midnight, Mary sat by the window and gazed out upon the stars. She knew that Paul was on his way, on foot, to the city, and that it would take him two hours to walk the distance. So she sat there until she thought he had reached his ship, and then she went up to her chamber, and sought her pillow, but not to sleep. Her heart was too heavy and sad.
Mary Archer was young, and healthful, and strong, and erelong she brought reason to the aid of hope, and was content to look and pray for the good to come.
