BY T. S. ARTHUR.
It was a very plain fuce. My eyes rest
ed upon it, for a moment or two, aud then
wandered away to the countenance or an
other muidtu whose beauty ravished the
eye of every beholder f aud as I gazed
Witb a letting of delight npou lis transceud
iug loveliueso, an Impulse of thankfulness
Stirred up iu my heart thankfulness to the
creator of beauty, I be first maiden sat
alone ; around the other a group of ad-1
mirers. So marked a coutrast between
the two, as well in features, as in the im
preaitiou mado thereby, excited, first, some
thing like pity for ber whom nature bad en
dowed so poorly : and I tifrned to look at
bur again witb "a kinder feeling in my heart.
There she sat all alone. Yes ber face
was very, very plain bat it did u.t strike
me as repnlnive. The mouth, which bad
Lotting if the ripe fulnes. (.hat gave snuh
an natnoriiig grace try the oibr maidea,
was placid ; aud though sot encircled witb
a perpetual - wreath of smile, calmly eft
throiAhi too guuDetplrlt of coetent. ' llur
eyes were smrdl. her Inshcs thin, nnd the ,
airb above thein rulntly Vldilile. "Arch ! I
can hardly give it tliatkracefiif dcstntiatldil.
bad not seen the expression of those eyen.
As I looked toward licr, with, that strange
conacioiiRiiess of obwvatioti which all have
but which few can cltplain, she
turned her eyes from another hart of the
room nd looked at me. They did not
flush brilliantly, nor strike, at the firstglance
as liuvingin them anything peculiar. They
were the common eyes we meet at every
soul in them. My second was
different, I had turned my eyes away ;
but somcthinir I bud seen caused them nl-
most involuntarily to wander back to the ,
maiden's face. A friend, whom I highly
regarded, a young man of more tuntl Com- j
nion worth, hud room, and was standing
before her. She had lifted her CJ'CS to bis
face, and there was no light in them not
dnftiiling, but a soft, winning light, that
purity and love made ftlnldst bountiful. ;
They were conversing, and I watched
for Borne time the play of that unattractive
countenance, unattractive no longer.
'Ah 1 said I, 'there is a beautiful soul
within that casket.
And as I sjioke thus, in the 6ilcneo of
my own thoughts, I looked towards the
other maiden, who was still surrounded by
crowd of admirers.-
'Her beauty is wonderful V I conld not
help the utterance of this tribute to her
charms. Yet 1 had scarcely spoken the
Words, when she turned to one of the group
which had gathered about her, a slight
curl of unlovely scorn upon her lips, and
threw at him on arrowy word that wound
ed as it struck. She saw that it hurt, end
glance of pleasure went forth from her
bill ha nt eyes.
A filmy veil came between my eyes and
that countenance, which ft little while be
fore bad shown upon tne With a loveliness
that was absolutely enchanting.
I turned again to tut) Other maiden, my
friend was still before- berr and lief eyes
ere lifted to his facer She was uttering
sentiments w hat, 1 did not hear, but they
must have been fcood and beautiful in con
ception, to have filled every lineameut with
such a winning grace.
Ah r said J, the real truth dawning np
on my . mind, 'here is the inner, intpei toli
able beauty. The beauty which instead of
losing its spnngt.me freshness, forever auU
ever advances toward eterntu youlu.'
A few weeks later, find my friend com
municated to me the intelligence that his
heart had oeen won by the charm of this un
uttraclive maiden. Once he had been a wpr
shipper at the shrine of beauty, and I kuow
tlmt onlv but a few months before, hand
and heart were ready to i be offered.. Ac.
cepted they would have been, for, he hud
HT80iiuI beaui.v.nttrnctive planners, weauu,
und ubove all, a manly, houorable spirit. .
For all I bad seen I was scarcely pro
pared for this. : The maiden might be good
-1 did not question that bnt she was so
homely, and this homeliness Would be 1 only
the more apparent in contrast with bis ele
gant exterior. It was almost on my lips
to remonstrate to suggest this thought to
his mind. But I prudently forbore. ;
You know her Well, I hope V I could
not help the utterance of thisCaUtlOii.
'She is not thought to be beautiful,' be
replied, seeming to perceite my tboughts ;
'indeed as to features she is plain, yet in
perspn she Is tall, dignified, arid with a car
riage that a queen might envy.' .
This was true to the letter. J had not
thought of it before. Nature bad given
nt leu.at this comoensatiou.
But the higher beauty,' he added, 'is
all of the soul. All else is suou diminished.
Scarcely has the blushing girl stepped for
wurd through the opeuiug door of womau
hood, ere we see the lustre of her blooming
cheek beglutiing tc taruish in the social at
mosphere, or to pule from hidtoUs diaeasei
But thj soul's beauty dies not. It Is im
perishable as the soul itself. Our bodies
die, but the soul is immortal.'
'If she possesses this beauty r
'I kuow that she possesses it,' he answer
ed very warmly. 1 have seeu it looking
forth from her eyes, wreathing about her
ps, and giving to every lineament a neav-
enly charm. It is musical iu every tone ot
her voice.' ;
'Gooduess alone is beautiful,' I said.
Aud she is Rood,' he replied. 'I never
met one who so rarely poke of herself, or
who Seemed to take 60 loving an interest in
. 'That is God-like.'
'Is not God the source of all beauty V
'Ah,' he added, 'I have found, indeed, a
treasure 1 Morning aud eveniug I thank
the Good Giver, that he has opened my
eves to see deeper that! the Unalluring sur-
face. 1 was dazzled, once, oy a giiueriug
exterior ; but I have a clearer vision novr.'
" 'Win her. and wear her, then, I replied,
'and may sho be to you all your faucy pic
tures.' 'She is won,' be answered, 'and I shall
wear her proudly in the eyes df all ttieu'
Thera was a world of surprise when it
became known that my haudsome friend
was about leading bis chosen bride to the
'How could he throw himself away upon
such an ugly creature 7' said one coarsely.
'He might bate taken Ills choice from
the loveliest,' remarked another.
'Ha will tire of that face In a month.
All the gold in Ophir would not bribe me
to Bit opposite It for a year.'
1 And so the changes rurg.
But my friend knew what he was doing.
I was present at the wedding. ,
'If ahe were not so homely,' I heard a
lady remark, as she stood beside ber band
some young husband. What tun lie sea in
bor to lob V
. I turned and looked at tho speaker.
Nature bad been kind iu giving her an f.t-
trsttive face) but the slight curt or con.
teuiDt that was ou ber liu marred every
thiug. 1 glaucvd back to the young' bride's
t-puuteiiauce. Iter pure sotd was shining
through it like through a veil. To me she
seemed at that momeut more beautiful thud)
the other and far wore worthy to be loved
The brilliantly beautiful maiden of whom
I have spoken, gave bef Irtnd in marriage
about the same time. . Her husband was
vouuir tnau of good eiaraeter, kind feel
tags, ant) with sufficient income tc enable
them to live it a style of imposing eleguirctr.
! A series of gay parties was the" social wel'
come ciTefl w tho loveir wiae, &ut bucb
hntlor rtitj hot Uttend the nuptiuls of bcr
A few years later nnd the moral rjiliilities
of ent'li were more apparent in their faces.
I remember meetiiifr. both in company, ten
years after their marriage. It was stand
remarked, ing at one end of the room when an over
dressed VVortlan, with a showy face, came in
nccompnnicd by a gentleman whom I knew
not as an acquaintance, but as a man of
business ami the husband of the beauty.
I should scarcely havo rei'Ogiiifted the lat-trn-iio
ter, but Tor him. What It change was there?
At a distance the face struck you as still
beautiful, but on a ctoser View the illusion
vanished. The mouth had grown sensual,
jieevisli ft ill-natured the eyes were bright,
but the brightness repelled rather that at
tmcted. After awhile, wondering at Hie
change, I drew near and cutercd into con
versation with her.
The music of her voice I remembered.
There was tit) music in it now at least to
my ear. A certain abruptness in her man
ner, born of pride or superciliousness, was
to me, particularly offensive. I tried her
on various subjects in order to bring out
some better aspects' of her character, The
Sweedish Nightingale had just been here,
and had sung to my heart as no living man
or woman ever sang I spoke of her.
'Too artificial,' was the reply, with an
air oT Critical vanity, that gave to my feel
ings a ripple of indignation. I referred to
a new poem remarkable for its purity of
6tyle; she coldly remarked with deprecia
tion on some of its special beauties, merely
repeating, as I knew, a certain captious re
viewer. I was in doubt whether she had
ever read a page of the book, Then
sboke of a ladv nreSCnt. Bhe tossed her
head and arched her lip, saying:
'She is too fond of gentleineu's attention.'
I f aried still my efforts, but to no good
purpose. Xlie more 1 conversed who ner
the less beautiful became lief face, for the
unloveliness of her true character was per
petuully gleaming through and spoiling the
already sadly marred features. 1 left her
side on the hrst good opportunity, glad to
get away, Ten years ago, in all Cdmpa
ules,' slle was the cynosure of every eye.
The praise of ber beuuty was on every lip.
Dut so changed was sue now tlmt none
befit td do Iter reverence. I noticed . her
sitting alone with a discontented look, long
after I left her side. Her husband, for
the atteutidn be puid licr during the evening
might have been unconscious of her pre
