A LITTLE COUNTRY GIRL.




CHAPTER I.

ON THE "EOLUS."


IT was on one of the cool, brilliant days which early June brings to the
Narragansett country, that the steamer "Eolus" pushed out from Wickford
Pier on her afternoon trip to Newport. The sky was of a beautiful
translucent blue; the sunshine had a silvery rather than a golden
radiance. A sea-wind blew up the Western Passage, so cool as to make the
passengers on the upper deck glad to draw their wraps about them. The
low line of the mainland beyond Conanicut and down to Beaver Tail
glittered with a sort of clear-cut radiance, and seemed lifted a little
above the water. Candace Arden heard the Captain say that he judged,
from the look of things, that there was going to be a change of weather
before long.

Captain Peleg King was a great favorite on his line of travel. He had a
pleasant, shrewd face, grizzled hair, a spare, active figure; and he
seemed to notice every one of his passengers and to take an interest in
them.

"Going down to Newport, Miss?" he said to Candace, after giving her one
or two quick looks.

The question was superfluous, for the "Eolus" went nowhere else except
to Newport; but it was well-meant, for the Captain thought that Candace
seemed lonely and ill at ease, and he wished to cheer her.

"Yes, sir," she answered, shyly.

"Your folks there for the summer?" he went on.

"No, sir; I'm going to stay with my cousin Mrs. Gray."

"Mrs. Courtenay Gray you mean, I guess. Well, it's queer, but I sort er
thought that you favored her a little. She's down early this year. I
fetched her and the family across on my evening trip more'n two weeks
ago. Mrs. Gray's a mighty nice lady; I'm always pleased when she comes
aboard. Wouldn't you like to take a seat in the wheel-house, Miss? The
wind's blowing pretty fresh."

    Cute

    Sweet little late Victorian story about a country girl, her city cousins, and the lessons they all learn about living a good and true life.
