A Boarding House Romance.
While chatting thus, the dooi
opened, and a young lady, whom ]
had not yet seen, entered. Hoi
hean ty eonld not fail to attraot i natani
attention; her features were regular,
her complexion that peculiar wax}
pink and white, her eyes a clear true
blue, and her hair, which waa per
fectly golden, was drawn in wavj
luxuriance off her broad forehead
and gathered at tho back into a mas
sive bow. She was tall, with a nguri
of rounded proportions, and even ii
her dress of plain black alpaca, an<
simple linen collar and cuffs, sin
looked stylish and lady-like.
"Who is that lovely girl?" I aske<
eagerly of Miss White.
"Oh! that is Miss Maitland. He
father was a poor curate, who die?
from over-work and starvation, an?
his wife soon followed, leaving thi
girl alone withont a relation in th
world; so she turned her musical ta
lents to account, and gives lessons al
day. Mrs. Wilson knew somethin?
of her, I fancy, and she hos been her
for the last two years, helping t
amuse the boarders, and paying som
very trifling snm for a home. Sh
plays and sings very well, as you wi!
hear presently; but until Mrs. Stace
has finished her nap, the piano is nc
allowed to be touched.?

from house to house, wet or fine, f<

nt once won my heart. Her office was
no sinecure, for she was called upon
for song if ter song, and looked quite

From that first evening Hilda Mait?
land wonnd herself unoonsoionsly
round my affections in a manner that
surprised myself. First, my advances
of friendship were as coldly treated
ivs those of others; but at last abo saw
that mine was not insolent patronage,
bot warm liking, and then she seemed
quite glad to have found a true friend.
She told me that all her life, short as
it Vas, had been ono continued chain
of trials and privations; for her father
I hnd, as Mise White said, literally died
o? starvation, and for some time she
was only able to earn very little; so
that when her mother also laid down
the burden of life, it wae for her own
loneliness only that she grieved. Now
she could make sufficient to support
herself, and with strict economy save
a little; but it was hard, trying work,
and a joyless life for one young and
gifted. Lavinia Primrose disliRed her
cordially, for she was jealous of her
superior attractions, and feared her
as a rival, and she sought to annoy
and mortify her in every way worthy
of one so narrow-minded. When I
had made my observations for a short
time, I likewise fancied that Captain
Vernon admired Hilda, but she gave
bim no visible encouragement, and in
a sort of pettish pique, he flirted with
Miss Primrose, for whom it was easy
to see he did not care a straw. But as
Hilda never introduced the Captain's
name in our conversations, I thought
it better not to bronch the subject..
One morning, Mrs. Wilson (who
from the commencement of my so?
journ in her house had seemed tc
think that I was an easily-managm!
boarder,) came into my room iu great
tribulation, to tell mo that the Prim?
roses' threatened to leave at the omi
of their week, unless Miss Maitland
was instantly sent away; ns they con?
sidered her a low, designing person
and declared that her manuel' witt
Captain Vernon was forward and pro
'T cannot afford to lose two gooi
payers, nor do I like sending tin
poor girl among strangers ?gain, as ]
really don't think sho lias meant anj
harm," she continued; "besides, .
don't believe Mrs. Colonel Stacey
would like to be without music now
it was one of the things that mad?
her come to live here."
"Tell Mrs. Primrose and her dangh
ter that you cannot possibly compl;
.with their request, Mrs. Wilson,'
I said," "for their accusations an
perfectly unfounded; and should Mis
Maitland have to leave in consequence
I shall accompany her; for, like your
self, I do not think it right to t hro\
a beautiful young woman like she i
needlessly about the world; there ar
too many wicked enough to tak
advantage of youth and innocence
Miss Lavinia is herself the one whos
conduct is improper, but my owi
idea is that she will never win he
game. One thing, liowover, you ma
be sure of, that they will not luav
so long as Captain Vernon remains.
And thus thc storm passed ovei
but I think Mrs. Wilson gave Hild
a few hints about what bad passet
for her manner towards Vernon wa
more freezing than ever; thougl
from certain signs, which a woma
alone can detect, I began to feel sm
that she really loved him, but fe
some private reasons she would n<
allow him to see it.
After this Lavinia seemed seize
with a violent friendship for Hild:
and sought ber company as much i
she had hitherto despised it. SI
even went so far ?is to talk of bavin
a few singing lessons from her, bi
this Miss Maitland declined, on tl
plea that her time was fully ocoupiei
But in spite of her drawing bac!

but she did not encourage fuvth
One evening, shortly after th
Mrs. Primrose addressed Hilda in
loud touo from tho further end of t
"You would not acknowledge

she replied. "But I suppose I v

"No, not at all," replied the hui
significantly. "I mean when y
were in tho park. But it waa qu
excusable, my dear, with such
good-looking companion as you h
to engross your attention. I suppt
we shall be losing yon soon."
"It isn't fair of you to speak (
beforo any one, ma," said Lavin
with a simper. "Of course M
Maitland will tell us all about it
good time. But I must say," i
added, trying to look arch, "thut >
ore very sly about it."
Hilda blushed a deep crimson, 1
sho replied, proudly, "I really do i
understand you, Miss Primros
Then catching Captain Vernon's <
fixed upon her with an expression
pain and surprise, she moved to
piano without another word.
Miss Primrose had evidontly offf
ed her object-more snooessf ally even
than sho had dareel to expect; for
Captain Vernon, ungenerous though
it might be, was fully impressed with
! the notion that Hilda was meeting
tome one clandestinely, and her
blushes and proud manner cf dis?
daining to deny it, still more con
j firmed the belief; though, really, if
he had reasoned the matter over in
his own mind, he might have disco?
vered that as she bad no one to
control her actions, no secrecy was
needed, and if she were really en?
gaged, she could be so openly.
! . To me, in private, she said the
whole was a fabrication, as she had
never even boen in the park; but she
begged mc to Bay nothing, aa she
merely told me because she thought
it a dnty to herself and my friendship
A short time after this, Captain
Vernon went into the country, but
fixed the day and hour of his return,
und laughingly said he should expect
us to welcome him back quite joyfully.
The day of his return arrived, but
it was not till evening thnt he waa
to come. Just as we were sitting
down to dinner, Mr. Jones rushed in
late, and informed us that there had
been a fearful accident to tho train
by which Captain Vernon was tc
como ; the news had been telegraphed
up to London, and every one was in
consternation, as tho number of kill?
ed and injured was something fearful.
We were all in a state of excitement
and sorrow nt tho tidings, thougl
many of us would not think that om
frank, agreeable companion, so Interj
among us in health and spirits, wa:
now lying a mangled corpse or i
maimed sufferer. Lavinia was snpport
cd from tho room by her mother, bu
she recovered sufficiently to re-nppea:
after dinner, and reclining languid!;
on the sofn, sho alternately applict
n smelling-bottle to her nose, and i
pocket-haudkerchief to her eyes, an(
seemed to think herself an object o
interest and tender compassion.
Tho poor captain's sad death migh
indeed be a blow to her matrimonia
speculations, bat if sho hud a heart
it certainly remained untouched,
meant to bava slipped away to hav
broken these dreadful tidings to Hild
in tho privacy of her own room, for
dreaded the effect upon her; bowovei
just ns I was contemplating makin;
my exit, she entered, and thong
deadly pale, seemed calm and collecte
ns usual. She was immediately eutei
fained with the news, hut coldly rt
plied, "that sho had heard it from th
servants, and was exceedingly surry.
This remark was so commonplace
that I felt quite angry with her; bi
sho afterwards confessed to me tin
she was suffering martyrdom, and
sort of supernatural strength alon
prevented her from breaking dow
beneath her agony; but cruel ey<
were fixed upon her, and she koo
that they would gloat over her miser;
so she hid it deep in the recesses <
her constant heart.
Mrs. Stacey hated this kind of dui
ness, and asked, as usual, for son
music; but for once her will was r
sisted-every ono declaring that
would bo most uufeeliug, and Lavin
adding "that sho could not bear it
She tried to enlist Mr. Jones' servie
for herself, first asking him to dru
ber sofa a little nearer to the fire, th<
to fan her burning temples, and last
to rub her hands-and all tho whi
she cast such tender glauces to war
him, that Miss Bella White was alan

though it waa, after all, amusing

Not that we believed it. All L
blandishments, however, could n
draw Mr. Jones from his allegiance

that her ?10,000 was moresubstaut
than tho largo fortune which was
be Miss Primrose's portion ; nnyho
he performed the offices required
him very much as a bear might lui
done, bat he would go no farth
Wo had all relapsed into a mourn
silence, only broken by au occosioi
snore from Mrs. Stacey, (who li
grumbled herself into a second na
when wo were startled by a loud kne
at the street door, and tho sa
thought strack us all-that it was 1
body of tho unfortunate man bei
brought there, probably through so
card or envelop in his pocket bear;
that address. Mrs. Stace)', fully aw
ened, whispered in a sharp, nervo
au? libio tone: '*Hc must not
brought here. I would not stay
the boase ono hour with a corpse.
Mrs. Wilson badalwavsexperien
great liberality from the captain,
she herself allowed, and was rei
sorry for what had occurred, but
evidently agreed with Mrs. Stac
that the captaiu living and the capt
dend wus not quito the same thing
giving a re-assuring nod to tho
lady, sho prepared to leave tho roi
in order to refuse admittance to
unwelcomo object. Before she cc
reach tho door, however, it was il
open, and in came Cuptuin Ver
himself, as fall of health and spi
aa when he parted from us.
.'Mary has just informed mu of
own death," bu exclaimed gaily;
fact, sho could not quite believe i
I was actually flesh und blood, till
had carefully inspected mc by the ,
lamp. She said, 'You was awful
np;' for which I feel exceedingly
tcred." Then he added, moro seri'
ly, "I am thankful that I came ui
tm ' earlier train, or I might indeed
now be lying a mangled corpse, like
so many other poor creatures. On my
arrival in town, I met an old fellow
.?flee?, -who insisted upon my dining
with him at his elub, and though he
tried hard to persuade me to linger
over the wine, 1 was not to be enticed;
for, as I had told you to expect me
this evening, <rhd taking it for granted
that you would all miss my sooiety, I
hastened away as soon as possible;
though had I known that my friends
were going to be bo kindly anxious on
my account, I certainly would not
have subjected them to it."
Wo all congratulated him warmly
on his providential escape; and Lavi?
nia, thinking this a favorable moment
for forcing a declaration from her di?
latory swain, detained the hand be
held out to her and then went off into
violent hysterics. Mis. Primrose ex?
pressed frantic alarm, declaring that
ns ono knew what her dear sensitive
child bad suffered in the last few hours
and sho implored the captain to speak
and soothe ber, und "not let her lie
there and die."
He looked uncomfortable, and was
beginuing to say something expressive
of thanks for so much interest on bis
behalf, when his glance fell upon n
prostrate figure in a dark corner of
the room. We bad all forgotten Hilda
Maitland, and there she lay, palo and
death-like. With Miss Primrose, I,
too, thought-now is the time to test
his real feelings; so I whispered:
"Tho shock of seeing you safe, after
tho agonizing news, has been too
much for ber, poor girl!"
"Is thia really on my ac?ount?" he
inquired, with a sudden gleam of hap?
piness lighting up bis manly features.
I nodded an assent. Then, heedless
of the woudoring eyes fixed upon him,
ho folded ber in his arms, and laid her
drooping head upon bis breast. This
scene, which was not lost upon Lavi?
nia, made ber redouble her shrioks;
and her mother, seeing that the game
was up, became positively abusive.
"Bring her up to my room," I whis?
pered to Captain Vernon, pointing to
the still unconscious Hilda, "for it
will not do for her to hear all this
"You are very kind, Mrs. Merton,"
he replied, huskily; and lifting his
preci?os burden tenderly as au in?
fant, ho carried her up iu his strong
arms, and laid her upon my bed.
Mrs. Wilson followed, and begged
him to go back and just say a few
words to Lavinia; but he sternly re?
fused, declaring that Miss Primrose
never had been, and never would be,
anything to him. So our good hos?
tess was obliged to go away in despair,
saying, "If poor dear Mr. Wilsor.
only knew all tho troubles and annoy
anees she had to endure, he wouldn't
rest in his cold grave."
I, in my turu, began to victimize
the poor man, and immediately w<
were alone I said:
"Captain Vernon, I take a warn
interest in this poor girl, and for be
sake I wish to know bow all this is t<

interrupted quickly; "at least," lu

murmured, with a sigh of rebel

surmise of mine; and the delighte

Perhaps it was against the strie
rules of propriety-but I was not n<
customeel to English society-so m
reaelers must not judge my mora
harshly when I confess that at th
point I became deeply intcresteel i
what was passing without, anel I n
loweel the lovers to whisper the
mutual tale of doubts anel fears, boj

glued against the window at tho otb?

Novomber night. At length I eli

would make me all sorts of pr?t

echoed. At last he went, anel I i

Christmas elny came in clear ai
frosty, and very pleasantly we spent
it, having unanimously agreed to re
fose all invitations. After dinner,
under the protection of ? piece of
mistletoe, the captain ventured to
kiss the ladies all round, beginning
with Mrs. Colonel Stacey,* (who re?
ceived the salute most graciously,
coming from military lips,) and end?
ing, last but not least, with bis fair
betrothed. A little later, under the
exhilarating influence of whisky
punch, Messrs. Jones and Brown in?
timated that they should likewise
avail themselves of the privilege of
the season; butas the proposal was
not encouraged, Jones was satisfied
with paying this delicate attention to
his charming Bella; and Brown com?
menced and ended with the buxom
hostess, who was much gratified, and
would doubtless have -been more so
had Miss White appeared at all
On New Year's day I dressed dear
Hilda in ber bridal robes, and very
beautiful she looked. She had made
objections, declaring that she was
too poor and humble to wed with one
well-born and rich; but he reminded
her that sho was a lady, and that was
all his friends cared about; and that
sho possessed his deepest affection
and gave him hers in return, and that
was all he cared about. The only
point ho. would yield was to have the
wedding quite private.
Every ono in tho house presented
the bride with some little parting
gift. Mrs. Stacey, always grand, ex?
tracted from the depths of a huge
chest n very handsome but antiquat?
ed Indian scarf. As a poor, toiling,
striving music mistress, an orphan
and unknown in tho world, Hilda
Maitland met with no sympathy or
kindness from the very people who
suddenly evinced the warmest friend?
ship when she was about to become
a rich and happy wife, and needed it
Mr. Jones followed tho good exam?
ple, and brought his courtship to a
speedy conclusion; so Miss Bella
White became Mrs. Jones, aud the
happy couple went to reside at Is?
lington. The city gentleman (Mr.
Brown) failing in his at tempts to in?
duce Miss White to sacrifico her free?
dom, turned his attention to Widow
Wilson, who was not such a bad
speculation after all, and they shortly
after united their iucomes and inter?
ests iu the bonds of matrimony-the
widow declaring that "her late la?
mented husband would rest moro
quietly in his gravo if ho knew she
hud found another protector."
My husband returned some months
earlier than I anticipated, so we
settled in a home of our own, and
have since had the pleasuro of enter?
taining Capt. and Mrs. Vernon and
their infant son.
Lavinia Primrose, I hear, is at last
successful in her matrimonial at?
tempts, and is about to become Ba?
roness von Schlos8enhausen. Tho
baron is a bearded, middle-aged,
smoking German, and says that he
has hitherto been unjustly kept out
of his hereditary rights, which causes
him a little inconvenience in the mat?
ter of ready money. But all this will
shortly be at an end, and he intends
to conduct his brido to "Castle
Scblossenbansen," where, bo adds,
her charming mother will always bo
an honored and welcomo guest.
The baron is not quite indifferent
to tho fair Lavinia's large fortune, so
it is to bo hoped hu will realize it;
and as she is, in her placo, much
elated at the idea of acquiring a title,
and living as mistress of a real castle,
we trust that she may not, when too
late, discover that, like many of the
"Chateaux d'Espagne," her husband's
ancestral homo is but a heap of
