pretty creature, around whom the
love of his strong nature had been
entwined with fervor rare enougb
in these matter-of-fact days. In
wistful perplexity. Shining au

eyes, like the velvety petal of a
pansy, and a mouth whose intense

jestingly. John Cat lyle's eye fol
lowed the direction of his, as by
sort of fascination and saw the
rose tint mounting to Harriet'i
cheek, and the purple blue eye:
hidden by their white lids. Rom
long he stood there with a giddj
pain surging through his brain
and a chill at his heart, as if
cold hand was grasping at iti
fibers, he did not know; it migh
have been five minutes or it migh
have been five hours; but he wa,
aroused by the breaking up o
the little party, the sound of mer

Harriet Dean was standing un

All at once there came a sudden,
sharp, pain, as the surgeon's keen
instrument cleft the arm, and then
I followed insensibility.
t -Ten to one he will die,' said
e the surgeon, indifferently, as be

'There's no use of bandaging it so
carefully.' But the young cadet
knelt down to f'asten the wrap

heart if the time would ever come
when he, two, would speak so
carelessly of a fellow-creature's

3 There had been a glorious thun
f der-shower. Along the west hung
heavy draperies of violet-black
clouds, edged with dazzling fringes

literally to swim in liquid light.

lifted the damp masses of hair on

as he sat in the easy chair beside
the casement, and passed its cool
fingers softly over his burning
temples, as if it fain would whisper.
'Don't repine any longer! Look

was no exception to the general

her very words,' he muttered to
himself, with a faint crimson spot
. burning on his wan cheek-'and

-well that I drew back into the
shadow of the curtains when I
heard her step in the corridor.
Why did they bring me here, of

to the very dregs? They should
have let me die that dismal night
in the hospital when the ligature

itself upon his miud-a laugh that
was almost a sob. Only twenty

of a man's breast at twenty-six.
SAnd the clustering domes and
spires of the great city, leaning
t against the gold and purple cloud
columns of the sunset, grew dim,
and seemed to reel, as he looked
upon them, through the mist that
.was more bitter than rivers of salt
He turned listlessly around, fan
cying that the word had syllabeled
r itself somehow out of the vague
imaginings and unspoken fan tasies
that were whirling in his brain.

'I would devote it to the noblest P

His forehead fell on her shoul- i

the flood tide of happiness. s
'Harriet,' said he, after a min- P
