So it happened this pleasant Au

'Then,' he said smiling, 'yoi

It is needless to follow thenm

A few days after this she r<

advice in regard to her new p

think of home without a pan
and she wvondered vaguely how
would all end. Some how sb

p~romisd to marry Jesse, and :
the months camne one by one ani
he was brought inito the fu
realization of her responsibi lit!
. 1'f inret seemed to se
tie on her spirits. Then she
began to wish that Charley
would not be home when she got
there, and again she would catch
herself longing for a glance of the
dark eyes that still haunted her
dreams. She still believed she
loved her promised husband but
but could not recall the past
without a strange feeling of mis
ery, and she now never opened the
little box of dead flowers that had
once been such a joy to see. To
no one did she tell of her sore
trial and Mabel often bantered
her on her absent-mindediess and
thought she was home-sick. Then.
when she had thought to be home
in a few days, Jesse came over
and brought her a letter from her
When she had finished reading
it she turned to him with the re
'There, now ! mamma won't let
me go home yet. Says she is
going for a visit to the city, and I
may come when she gets back.
Now, what do you think of that,
'I thank her greatly. A month
makes quite a difference to me. I
only wish you could stay always
with mc,' he said, taking her hand
and trying to kiss the rosy fingers.
But Lillian jerked it away just
as Aunt Mima and the girls came
i tto the room.
* * * * 4 * *
Lillian accompanied him to the
door as he was leaving, and as
they stood together he bent down
to her with the iove light in his
deep blue eyes.
Lillian won't you kiss me to
night. It is only the second time
I have asked and you will leave
me soon I will-'
The concluding wards were cut
short by her uncle's Newfound
land dog as he gave a loud yelp
and ran to meet his master who
had just come into the gate.
With a playful 'good night !'
she ran lightly back into the
house as her uncle camne up the
A fewv days after as they were
all seated at the suppler table
and the jelly was under discussion,
Aunt Mima remarked that it was
not so good as she bad formerly
made owing to the fact that she
ad lost the receipt and had made
by guess. At the same time she
alluded to some she had eaten at
Mrs. Falkner's table as being of a
very superior flavor.
'I think I have mamma's with
me and will look for it after tea.'
Lillian had said.
'Yes,' Julia answered, 'you have
a whole lot of them in your bible.
1 saw them the day we were ini
sarch of your coral brooch.'
So after leaving the table she
went immediately to her trunk
Sin quest of it. Sure enough the:e
it was, the very first one she saw,
and she was about to close the
book when a piece of myrtle fell
out into her lap. What a rush of
Ifeelings she experienced as she
Stook up the brown leaves !
A b, Charley ! in your far away
studio, could you have seen the pas

Sdead leaves were pressed to those
Sripe lips, methiuks you would
have been happy indeed. How
Svividly was the scene recalled to
her mind as she held that Autumn
Soffeing again in her hand ! Again
she and Charley were strolling in
the myrtle grove. Again she saw
the pained look that she had
caught as she glanced up at the
handsome face beside her and
now- ! The flash of her ring in
the lamp light recalled her to the
rrealities, and with something very
rlike a sigh and sob she laid the dead
leaves again in their place. In
those few momets,5 however, she
ehad made a firm reole She
Scould never become the wife of
Jesse Gardner. She would tel
yhim all and then she would leave
them and he would soon forget
her. And she kept her resolve
rand when next he came she told
He listened in silence and when
dshe had finished he rose and ex
Stended his hand, saying:
'Lillian. hon ever much this in
IIterview has pained me I thank
you for you:- confidence. No, I
...;llnev-c.* ~i'.k tit by word or
act you have played tue part of
coquette; and may a curse follow
the man who ever dares to trifle
with your true heart. Farewell!
and God bless you. I will try and
bear my great anguish as a man
should who has had the greatest
joy of life snatched away w% hen
just about to drink of its swcet
ness.' Then he was gone.
In the twilight Lillian sat and
watched him as be rode slowly
down the avenue, and a yearning
pity rose in her heart that she
had caused so true a heart to bleed
and suffer. Then she thought of
her- own past life, and the sore
heart trial she had borne. She
lay awake long hours that night,
and wished she had never come to
her uncle's home.
Shortly after, her uncle an
nounced the fact that Jesse had
gone to Pennsylvania, on business
for an uncle. Tuen noting the
glances bestowed on Lillian he
for the first time saw that the
ring was missing, and he exclaim
'Eh, child ! Been having a lov
er's quarrel. Tut, tut !'
Lillian muttered something
about a 'mistake' and then Julia
explained to her father.
'Not love. indeed!' he exclaimed
in impatience. 'When you have
lived a while longer you will learn
that is all bosh and nonsense.
You are a silly child, Lillian.'
After this very complimentary
speech, he left them and then
Aunt Mima had a word, all think
ing she had behaved in a very fool
The next letter from home con
tained the announcement of her
mother's return and also that
she could come whenever she
liked ; and closed with this news:
'Charley Elerton came home on
last Wednesday and took tea with
us on that aiternoon.'
Her heart seemed to stand
still as she finished. Charley
home ! But, abh! he had not come
for her. .No, she must fight on
aainst her heart, and bury bar
grief as best she could ; and meet
him as thbe C barley of old times.
And, though it might break her
heart, he must never knowv how
she had loved and waited.
* * * * * * * * *
Her mother looked anxiously
at the pale face as she entered her
home, and questioned her closely.
Lillian told her of the broken en
gagement, but did not -mention
te cause. Somehow her mother
seemed to guess at it and strove
to speak cheeringly to her. With
all her motherly scheming she
wanted to secure her daughter's
appiness, and she had quickly
noted the shade on Charley's
brow when ho learned that Lil
lan was absent.
About a week after coming
ome, Lillian was walking in the
grove and involuntarily took the
path she had last walked with
Charley at her side. The sun was
casting red glow lines above tr-ee
tops when she reached the bank
wereon she had sat that even
ing. She threw herself on the
grass, and a g:s h of pent up emo
tions bust forth in hot tear-s.
On this very evening Charley
had started to visit her, and from
some similar emotion had taken
the same path.
With his head bowed low he
came suddenly upon the kneeling
figure of the weeping gir,li e
stopped short, and after looking
some moments at her, stepped
quietly to her side and called her
With a frightened look sh2
quickly wiped her eyes, and strove
to release the hand he had taken
and held closely.
'Ohb, Lillian ! my darling !' he
cried. 'say that thbe memory ofouir
last walk brought you here. Say
that you love me, Lillian ! I have
come for you. Will you answer
me, darnng ?'
'Yes, Cbarley, I have waited,
was all she said, but it was enough
and in the dim twilight, as they
went together to the house, sh
learned why she had waited so
'I loved you, Lillian,' he said
'but I was a coward. I had noth.
ing to offer you but my true heart,
.ad I was afraid I had been mis

as a friend. It would have driven
me mad to hear you say that.
But this evening when I saw
you kneeling here, in the very
spot where we had last visited
together, my heart whispered that
you did love me and I thank God
that my steps wvere guided to
For three years has Lillian been
Charley's happy wife, and two
little blue eyed boys have come to
bless their home and unite still
more closely the two hearts that
were once so nearly parted forever.

Al LADr.-The lady does not lose
caste because she wakes her own
clothes, and is obliged to economize.
A 'lady' is a woman who clearly un
derstands and consistently practices
the refinements of a highly civilized
existence, and the most real distinc
tion between a lady and a woman who
is not a lady, is that one is more civ
ilized than the other, and more de
termined to preserve the habits of a
high civilization, both in her own
person and in all those c.ver whom she
has authority. These habits are not
simply habits of expense; it is cheaper
to remain sober than to get tipsy,
and yet is more lacy-like to be sober.
It does not cost more money to speak
good English than bad, or to be gen
tle than rude; yet a lady from pre
ference, speaks correctly and has gen
