A flood of warm golden ligbt from tbe
setting sun poured in through a vista of
tho woods, and lightcd up a picture that
wero well worthy of such an illustration.
A young and graceful girl was Icaning
against thc trunk of a noble trce. Her
straw bonnet lay on the mossy rock besidc
her. Her soft curls fell showering round
her face as she bent over a flower which
she held in her hand. It was tho little
blue " Forget me not," from whose mys-?
tic petals many a romantic maid had leam
ed her destiny. Leaf after leaf tho" blush
ing girl pulled off, murmuring as she did
so in a low nnd trembling tone, half sport
ive, half in carncst, " He loves mo he
loves me not ho loves me he loves me
not "only ono half remained-" ho loves"
tho flowcr was gcntly wilhdrawn, and
tho hand that held it pressed passionatcly
to the lips of a noble looking youth who
had stolen unperccivcd around tho trce.
" Let me speak for the last leaf, Lizzie,"
he wnispercd. "llo loves theo more than
Iife ! Dear one, may he believc his love
returned 1" Lizzie "sniilcd through hcr
tcars he drew hcr to his hcnrt !
For a mcmcnt tho lingering sunshino
restcd softly on thi fair tnblcau, then pass-
cti, and lett it to the holicr Iighl of love.
" You remcmber Ellen, our hamlct'a pride,
IIow meekly she hlcssed her humble lot,
Vhen tlie stranger William had made ber his bndc,
And lore ivas tlie ligbt of tlieir lowly cot."
" Havo you found the blue Forgct-me-not

S , with a mcaning smile, to a fair and
white-robcd maidcn at his sidc, as ho sat
with othcrs at thc bridal feast about a ycar
atter tho pcrformancc oftlic lorcst tablean.
Lizzic Welford looked up in hcr husband's
eycs, which wcrc bcnt fondly upon her,
and smiled, but did not rcply.
Pleasant and comfortablc, but simply
furnished, was the coltago in which the
schoolmaster and his beautiful and hnppy
wife passed the first few monlhs of their
marriage. But Charlcs grew rcstlcss then,
and he pursuaded Lizzie who could nev
er rcsist his persuasions to takc a little
journey with him.
In their own humble chaisc, they trav
clled through thc dclishtful and richly cuK
tivatcd country, and Lizzio was cnchant.

thathad always bcen hcr chief tronhlo from

crful too allow hcr to bchold poverty or
misery in any shapo without a pang of
pity and an ardcnt wish to rclicvc it and
this hcr humble means would not always
allow hcr to do. As shc passcd somc bcg
gars on thc road, to whom she had thrown
somc silvcr, sho turned to hcr husband, with
tcars in hcr cyes, and said
Oh, Chnrlcs ! I ncvcr caro for wcalth
for my own sako, but would it not bo di

Charlcs smiled, ratlxr too gaily sho tho't,
but hc prcsscd hcr hand so tcndcrly that
she could not chido him. At thc closc of
thcsccond day's journcy, they came to a
beautiful nnd cxtcnsivo park, through the
vistas of which, they could catch now and
then a glimpsc of a mngnificcnt mansion.
Lizzic thought it nnist bc a palacc. Ilcr
cyes flashcd with delight. and then fillod
with tcars. Shc was cxcilcd and ucrvous
she knew not why. Sho had rcad of such
placcs, but shc had never sccn onc, and
sho bcggcd Charlcs to stop tho chaisc for
