Mrs. Howell stojped here for want of

would have found a separate gi'luvanee in

1 think, Mrs. Howell," said' the young
iiUHtri'M, "trial you have nil been so uccus
torued to having no one to Interfere w ith
you, that yon must have mislukeu my
mother's manner1. SIm U naturally distant, 1
to every one, andj oti have niisappreheuded
her.. I aiqipom aim thiaigiii I whs young
and inexperienced, and has kindly intended
to relieve me as much as possible. Take
your key, however, uud have no fear of
any one usurping your place.'
Bertha Said this apparently very calmly,
but in reality with her unger rising every
moment. Hhe now saw that she held the
position of mistress at Beechwoo.l, and
she was determined to regain her place.
An appeal to 'her husband she new was
out of the question, for she loved him too
much to be willing to disgust him with a
woman's quarrels, und it would be either
against his wile or his mother that he must
give judgment. ' , , ,
. Poor child 1 Mrs. Howell had played
the Eve in the little l'tiradisu in w hich Bur
tha had been living, aud made her taste of
the tree of knowledge much against her
wishes." That very day some guests were
to dine nt Beeehwood, and its young mis
tress soon decided upon her line of conduct.
As they entered tbe diiiing-robrn," Bertha
quickly stepped np to the bead of 'the table,
laid her hand upou the back of the chuir
which Mrs. Hamilton was nlready ap
proaching, and said in a low tbrte, "1 am
obliged to you mother, but 1 will take this
for the" future." -', ' " ;
Mrs! Hamilton made no renvintr:ince,
but her eyes Bashed, und a white ! cit cle
ppread uround her mouth. She withdrew
a little to one side, und stood with a kind
of conspicuous humanity till nil were seated.
Till that moment Cecil had noticed noth
ing1 of this quiet warfare. A look of an
noyance airL reproach, w-hieb did not es
cape the anxious eyes -of bis wife, was cast
upon ber as he asked bis mother to be seat
ed.. ":' ''''.''' ".'"." i
'I really do not know where to sit, as I
had .not my accustomed place,' was the re-
p'y-1 '' " " : "'
A feeling of constraint and uneasiness
passed over the guests as they all felt' ns
though they had becti the usurping party..
I'oor Bertha's face flushed a painful crimson
as she said in a half apologetic, half laugh
ing tone, 'LrUlies' and geiilltiiueii,' you see
mo for the fir9t tiin' at the head of Iny
Owii table, for mftrainrt has been kind Cnongli
to relieve me of this duty ' heretofore,-1 and
we are not aceustomcd yet to our change
of places.' ; ' '' ; ' ' 1 '
The tact and pleasant manner of the
young wife soon made all as comfortable as
they hud beeip before, and Cecil thought
she had never appeared to so much advan
tage. . ' ' ;; ,
Never once during the rest of the day
did Mrs. Hamilton address- her daughter-iii-luw
und only answered in the shortest
possible manner if Bertha spoke . to her,
making the poor thing us uncomfortable as
possible. As they stood on the piazza to
gether in the evening, bidding adieu to the
departing guests, Bertha Said in a concilia
tory tone, 'Are you not afraid of taking
cold without your shawl, mother? I'll
get it for you.' - " :
'Do uot trouble yonrself, Mrs. " Hamil
ton, I do not take kindness upon sufferance, '
wus the icy reply. .
' The daughter's ryes filled with tears,
and her hand trembled us srie 'twitched off
a sprig of jessamine to hide her emotion!"'' ,
Cecir walked up and do'w'it ' tlie piuZZ:i
wiih his, hands ui Ids p.ocket.4, whistling a
disconsolate air pi ,fuse time, litying bia
wife, whom he dearly loved, Vet feeling as
If his mother wus really iu some uiiaceoiiut
uble way the .injured party.-. In truth, Airs.
Humili'on had a knack uf always . making
people fi-i-l this, in" spile of their better
ju gin nt, & B. rjha was beginning to tlii ik

Hike, you will select a timo when there are
i o guests iu the bouse to make a display of
your authority ' '- '
The tears ' which before were dimming
Bertha's eyes were dried up by the tlash of
indignation which shot from them us she
replied ' -H .J' . -'J '
"I did not meaa to insult yon, madame !
I have too much respect for -myself to for
get what is due to those connected with
me, but as the mistress of Beechw o-Jd, ' I
fell it was a duty I owed to my guests us
well as myself, to appear hereafter in that
character. 1 am" obliged for ilia, charge
w hich you have hitherto takeu of my affairs,
but I will relieve you of it in the future."
The tone this time wus anything but con
ciliatory, and with a defiant air Bertha en
tered the house, -and 1 retired to her, own
room. Bhe awaited her husband's coming
wiih some anxiety, not knowing from bib
niabiier on the piatzu, Whether to expect
sympathy or reproach.' His . presence did
Hob -relieve her much; The whistling still
continued, Interrupted "only 'by "the, mono
syllables with which he replied to hi w ife's
remarks. 1 'Tlie ; wife'' tears were nguiu
quenched by anger, and after tossing rest
lessly for many hours, she at last cried her
self to sleep in coiisequeuce of 'her' fertile
imagination having '-'pictured' the gloomy
unloved future before ber iu the darkest
colors. V"'"" ' , ' . '; j1"'. ', "'
The brenkfust the next morning was most
uncomfortable for all. The wife felt that
her peace-offering of the night before bad
been only half aecepted--the mother, that
another now stood bet eeu herself, aud her
ton; and one, too, who set Jier will at naught
while Cecil thought pf the annoyance h
would be to have such CQUsla'ut bickeriugs
as he foresaw, aud roudered why two peo
olt) whom be loved so much could .uot live
Uuppdy together. -
Cecil Hamilton was ia every thing min
of compromise, and like all persons of that
class he pleased neither pnrty; o he quick
ly walked into the library, und shut himself ,
up with the old dramatists, to revel in their,
delineation's 'of character, when there wiis
a pnge of liuninn iintuie in the next room '
which he, in bis indolent egotism, hud not
troubled himself to rend.
Mrs. Huftiilton "pursued the oven tenor
of her way" iu haughty silence, ulways frig-1
itily polite, but never eordial to Bertha; !
but this wus a mood to which her son was
so accustomed that he'even. did Dot remurk,
it; und cousequt'iiily tlie change in his wife's
iiiunuer struck him the' more forcibly, lie ,
saw nothing for lu r to resent, flint secretly
regretted what he thought her Sullen dis
position. All ihesparkte and vivacity which
- fonrtfHy churuclerized her h id dmuppcarcd,
umj ct-cu stiuiy nussea ine teudtr care-is
uud light. kiss wbi.-li he used to receive so
fietpicuily. He. was a most uudemoustra
tive mau, mid I. itle knew how his coldness ,
and niditl'ereui muiine1; had ciiillod.the warm
heart of his wile.. So rime ' passed; Bji
tha yearning for a recoiiciliitiiuii with . her
husband, for w hich her proud' spirit forbade
her to ask since her former repuls?, and he
coolly wailing till her lit of petulance" should
be over.' , .
. Mrs. Hamilton no longer took tlie heud
of . the table, nor interfered with Mrs. How
ell, nor loo closely scrutinized Jane's work,
yet her iiiUuence was felt nevertheless. The
servants complained that there wus no po-;
Sibiliiy of pleasing her iu anything they did,
and those w ho hud lived iu the family for
years, threatened to leave. It required all i
the tact and dignity ol Bertha's character
to retain her servants, yet not to comprom
ise her mother-in-law. . .( : v
A year passed thus at Beeehwood. Ber
tha Hamilton's heart was now suffering for
want of early discipline. .. Her temper had
become haughty and irritable uudor the cold
surveillance of Mrs. Hamilton. She had
formerly yearned for tlie old caress aud kind
words from her husband for which her pride
forbade her to ask ; but she wa' now al
most beginning to despise him for the man
ner iu which he yielded everything to his
mother. Cecil, on bis part, wondered how
he could have been so misluken in a char
acter. His wile, in some unaccountable
way, always appeared to greater disadvan
tage before his mother. It pained him lo
the heart to think that it had only been, a
childish fancy on Bertha's part for him, and
be determined not to trouble her with re
monstrances; so the two went on outwardly
sorrowing, with Mrs. Hamilton swaying her
sou aa of old... j. ..,:
Aud thus it was, when an heiress was
bora to the uuilcd fortunes of the Donald
sons and Uumiltous. .-,
The young mother wept wild tears , of
joy as she pressed her child to her bosom,
and thought thut now she would have some
one to love her ' exclusively, though for a
moment she trembled us she thonglit of her
woman's destiny, "to make idols and find
them clay," as she herself had dpue. Cacil
Hamilton beaved a deep sigh as be saw tke
luvisb lenderucss which Bertha bestowed on
his daughter, mid secretly euvied the un
conscious little thing, while Mrs. Hamiltoa'
declared that the mother, was too delicate
to nurse the child so both for ber sake
and its own, a wet nurse must be provided.
' Bertha listened in silence when in Cecil's
presence one eveuiiig, Mrs. Hamilton pro
posed it to her,- but tier color rose and ber
eyes flashed long before ber motlicr-in-law
had concluded. . :. J ' ,
"Madam,"' said the young mother, "you
have governed your owu child (luring his
life, kud I shall do the same by mine.; ' In
this thiug I will uot be thwarted. I am
perfectly : able to nurse my - baby, aud I
would rather lay her iu the ground t'luu on
another's bosom. .This is uever to be men
tioned to me again." ' , i, ' ..
"But, Bet tha !" commenced Cecil, who
was really alarmed ' for "his 'wife's health,
from his mother's representations. ' '
"1 have decided the matter ,v interrupted
-tlie wile, in a lone of such ley coldness,
that it lefVno room for remonstrance. '- -
Mis, Uauiillou lifted ber eyes aud hands
with the uir of a martyr, which graphic
paiiioiiiiue was uot lost ou either Bertha or
uer sen. , ,, ... , ,
So. till little Marion Hamilton was three
years old, she was a source, of contention
between-her grandmother and her 'parents
Mrs; Hamilton looked upou the child as
belonging to herself, quite as much as its
mother; -erne mterlered with 'lts fo id,'1' Its
exercise, lis dress; slw scolded' n8 iuhsi,
ami ofieu coii.6iiipiou.-ily eluded Bei tha her
self. Ber ia watched every aDcroavmueui
upou her muteruul authority Wkih jea.ous
eye, and otieu w iih ui fc,ry words; uud Ce
cil peite.d his darling, uud appealed to bis
uiolLcr w ith regard to its education. " '
-,''1 tell you, Cecil, she will grow up as
beudsiroug uud pussjotiaiv cs Bertha her
self, if juu lei mailers go ou in turn way,"
said Mrs. Hamilton, one. morning,, "Her
uioilar .humors her iu every whim,, aud ,
really believe the child takes pleasure iu dis
obeying iue." 1 ' . ' .
"She is perfectly obedient to Bertha or
her aurse,' argued Cecil. I think -she is
a child alio must bo managed by love ami
uot hurshuess; for severity seems- to call
out all the bud qualities of ber character."
; After four yearn of marriage. Cecil Ham
iltou wus Itcgiuuing to have glimujui tngs of

. But what Mi . Haiuiltou lud said was

to the greatest possible extent,' for her whole
nuiuro was roused to anlagonisiii by her

With a sigh of satisfaction Marion contem

; ..The uurae's voicu was beard calling Ma

the swoop of a ha k ijlie rushed Upou the
