I met Julia May at one of the I
fashionable watering places of our t
country. She was there under
care of some friends. She was
not strictly beautiful, but she had
an attractive face, with clear blue hi
eyes and light brown hair, while
her stature was rather under size."
What I admired most about her l
was the perfect frankness of her~
manners. I had no idea of loving b
her when ,ve met; but love her I
did, soon after we became ac
quainted. She was an excellent
musician, and I was passionately d
fond of music.
The time at length came for the
sojourners to depar-t to their respee- ,
tive homes, and I was happy to'
know that Julia and myself were h
to travel togetber, as we both liv
ed in the same citv.
On our way, while seated in thee
ears, she gave me a brief histor-y t
of her life. She was an orphan,
and made her home with a maiden
aunt, who lived in an old-fashion
way, and whose money-bags wer-e
pretty well filled. Her father had
been lost at sea, and her mother
died within a year of her husband-.t
Julia was ebhen a child, and she, of d
course. could not estimate her loss.
But, poor thing, she discovered it b
after-ward. 11cr aunt was a harsh ir
woman, and( Lho4gh she clothed hi
and fed her and gava her an edu- g,
cation, she did it grudgingJy, an g
Julia was adeo eLhar deped- q
ence. Before we arrived at our -
destination I had received permis
sion to call at her home, at my re-s
quest she was to inform her aunt
in regard to my name and ad- s
It was several days after I had 'd
been at home that I started to f
visit Julia May. T he house was an'Is
old f.ashioned brick building set well,v
back from the street,having a dJeepe
garden filled with shade and fruit- 1t
trees. In fact, it was one of the I
old time landmarks that wve some- j
his silly conversation to her, nev- h1
er deiglning to notice ine. I Nas E
glad when he went away, for I
could not have endured his pres. s
ence much longer; the devil was n
getting the better of me. We went d
to our chamber and there had our
first bitter quar2ol. 0
To my consternation Mr. Ham. y
merly came to dine with us the si
following day. She had not told ik
mec that she had invited him. I was
furious, and forbade her going ni
down stairs. She laughed and a
snapped her fingers in my face, bi
and strode away in haughty de. a
fiareo of my wishes. She dined
alone with Mr. Hammerly, for I a
never left my room, ordering my e
dinner to be sent up to me. That y
night our quarrel was renewed, n
and she refused to speak to me for a
two days. Then came a tru,,e.
and I thought my troubles were
over. But I was sadly mistaken. h
She had been seized with a desire it
to attcact admiration, and soon %
had a knot of adorers about her ti
whenever she appeared in the c
drawing room. Nearly wild nith
grief, I went to London with the I
intention of taking passage with h;
har for home. But alas! a more le
cruel sorrow than any I had s,
yet known came to take its abode ft
I was one day riding on horse
back in Hyde Park, when my I
horse became unmansgeaL:le. En- p
deavoring to subdue him I applied j
the whip, and at the same mo.! f(
ment struck him with both spurs. 1
He made a spring forward, then
suddenly stopping reared till he h
lost his equilibrium and fell over
backwards, burying me beneath
his body. They picked me up for s(
dead, and searching my pockets a,
got some letters and discovered k
my address. When I became con- k
scions I was at my hotel, with m
my wife by my side. I was told p
that mny arm was broken and I
was otherwise internally injured,
but with attention, the physician P1
hoped all would come right. I b<
was so sore from the crown of my 11
head to the soles of my feet that i
my arm pained me no more than
other part of my bo-ly. I could i
not realize I had a fractured limb 1
except by gazing at the boards
and bandages which bound it.
I was ncar-y convalescent, arid b
m~y wife had faithfully attendeda
mue all tho time, when one day U
there cnme a rap at the door. She'
happened to be absent that mo

written in pencil, I read:

"Please, sir, don't speak so IQud. 4
I got it from Mr. Ham merly." c
A cold sweat broke over me.
"Have you ever brought my wife e
any notes from this man before Ii
the present one ?" I
The fellow hesitated.

hollow voice, "it will be the best "

He was sit ting at a smal table on
which burned a single lamp, gazing
at a large seal ring, whereon was
engraved a quaint old. coat-of

eyes, there came such a look of
unutterable sorrow, as Might have

from his most implacable foe.
Presently he picked up the bauble,
and holding it before his eves,
looked on it earnestly, as his
thoughts flow swiftly backward to
years when he was a happy man.
It was her gift. Then came a long

He had visited the country of the

exceedingly sensitive, and the
worst fault in it was the quick
ness with wh ich he took offensec;
but his heart at the bottom was
good. .His temper was hot, and
in his anger scathing and bit

his lips. To his credit, be it said,

be really thought he had made
great progress. But, alas ! these
dreadful passions had only been
slumbering, when he imagined his
heart swept and garnered and the
evil spirit departed. His anger
was always very brief, however.
Allow him to remain quiet for a
moments, until reason reasserted
her supremacy, and he would
come to you with the meekness of
a child. and crave your forgiveness
for the bitter, bad words he
hatd launched on your head.
For his manifold irre&rlarities
of temper none could feel a more
genuine sorrow than did he, and
it was no figure of speech to say
the greater portion of his days
