It was while persuing his favorite
study of oil paintings among the fa
mous galleries of Rome that Harry
Marston wooed and won Helen Tracy,
governess in an .English family resid
ing iu Italy, and the orphan daugh
tes of an officer in the army. Before
he had known her a month, Harry,
who had been iu !ove or fancied
himself in love with at least half a
dozen different you ug ladies in as ma
ny months, felt that he had at last
met his fate.
Delighted at the Ideaof being loved
for himself'aloue, he had not told her
of his real position, dnd it was not
until alter tne marriage ceremony
was over that Helen discovered that
she bad married the eldest son of a
baronet, and the heir loan estate pro
ducing 15,0CO a year.
It was not without some inward
misgivings that Harry wrote to his
father telling him of his marriage,
which were more than realized by the
result, as we have seen by the letter

in an ecit trembling voice.
A strange chill came over Harry, as
the idea that "his mysterious visitor

'I will do my best, sir, but it will
be uoeay task, and you must be pre-

said Harry, when, having given a
long description of the form and'fea-
tures of his long-lost daughter, the
old man rose to depart, and for weeks
he worked incesantly upon the mys-
tenons portrait of the dead girl, mak-
. c .

wife's fair face between his two
hands, and gazing intently into her
Without losinir a moment he sat '

for some moments unconscious of his

presence, until, with the cry of 'Hel

ried him aside.-aud stood entrauced
before the portrait.
After gazing for some minutes iu
silence, broken only by his own half-
suppressed sobs of remorse, the old
man tarued slowly -around to Harry,

where he had obtained the original of

harshness toward her mother.'
Hairy was beginning to tell him
the story of his meeting with Helen
at Borne, and their subsequent marri
age, vhen the door opecedantl his
wife entered the room.
Perceiving that her husband was
engaged, she was ' about to retreat,

'He:en Treherne,' replied Htlen,

the o man, in an excited voice.
'At last I have found the poor child

of the heroes of the campaign, and

where to hnd .Lee. I remember that
Sheridan was impatient when I met
and suspicious about
the whole business, feared-- there
might be a plan of escape ; that he
had Lee at his feet, and wanted to end
the business, by going in and foreing
an absolute surrender by capture. In
fact, he had his troops ready for such
an assault when Iee white flag
