Though they tell us God is merciful,

THE MYSTERY EiPJLAIflED.
I was spending the most beautiful
part of the year with Mrs. Bossut
Rose HUI, my usual summer resort;
and ? gayer, happier company th nu
that which was thou around me, I
have seldom found. Excursions,
pic-nics, and all manner of enjoyments
were continually on the list, and
never had time passed so pleasantly
One among us, however, seemed
to take no interest in our gatherings,
or in any of our pleasure parties; and
Charles Meredith's ooldness and re
servo waa frequent subject of com?
ment, especially among the ladies.
Young and attractive he certainly
was, and possessed of brilliant col?
loquial powers, which I myself bad
often tested; for, strange to say, Mr.
Meredith had repelled all friendly
-advances from others, and it was
only after many persevering efforts
that I finally drew him ont of his
"reserve. Our sameness of pursuit
had Borne influence here, no doubt.
We were both artists. I was strongly
and irresistibly attracted towards the
handsome, energetio enthusiast; and
it pleased me greatly to find that in
my company, at least, he would throw
off the mask of reserve.
When at length I persuaded him
to minglo with our littlo party in the
drawing-room, the fascinating young
artist soon became n general favorite.
I noticed more than one fair lady's
cheek blush with pleasure, when
Charles Meredith's dark eye flashed
into hers; but among all tho ladies of
our little set, ho seemed to choose
Annie Fay, the merriest little fairy
that ever danced upon tho earth.
Ono stormy evening, we were sit
tingin the well-lighted drawing-room,
most of us in earnest conversation
concerning the "sphere of woman."
I noticed that Charles was unusually
quiet as the discussion went on,
though his eyes were flashing strange?
ly us ho listened to our various ideas.
Suddenly I exclaimed to my oppo?
nent: "Say what you will, sir, when
a woman has once lowered herself
from her upper sphore, she has low?
ered herself far iu my estimation and
As I said this, I turned my gaze
full upou Charles Meredith's face, ns
if to ask his opinion. To my terror,
I saw him spring from his seat with
palo face and hands uplifted, as
though suffering intense agony.
Several gentlemen sprang forward to
aid him, when suddenly his arms fell
helplessly by his side, ?and, hastily
turning, he left the room.
"Poor fellow!" said Annie Fay;
"he works so incessantly that it is no
wonder he is ill."
Her words were received as suffi?
cient reason for Charles' behavior,
and were verified when he roturned
to offer an apology for his abrupt
departure, giving sudden ilncss ns an
After that, Charles Meredith never
joined us in the drawing-room again.
Moro reserved than ever, he worked
in his room, or, with sketch-book in
hand, spent days in rambling over
tho hills. I now seldom met him; or
when I did I was pained and sur?
prised to find that his interest in me
seemed entirely gone, so cold und
discouraging was his behavior.
Mr. Meredith has left us," re
Mrs. Ross, ono morning,

voice and sad looks, and regretted
keenly th nt I had not taken greater
pains to secare his irienahip.
? was Walking in the garden i one
day, just at twilight, and hearing tho
rou. pf carriage wheels, I approached
the front entrance 'gate, A traveling
carriage drew up before me, and
as its occupant sprang out and came
towards me, I was surprised to find
it waa ObarleB Meredith. We enter?
ed the house together, but ho did
not appear at the dinner-table. Mrs.
Boss was stating how glad she was to
see him baok sgain, and how pale
and ill he looked whoa he entered.
The- next day, the bell was m ti file d,
doors were opened, and closed care?
fully, and the news of Mr. Meredith's
dangerous illness flew from mouth
to mouth. For a long time, his life
hung by a thread; bat at hist our
good hostess joyfully told us of his
sure ri covery. A mighty load seem?
ed to leave my-heart, and I now
waited anxiously for his re-appear
ance. Great was my surprise and
disappointment, then, when I heard
that he had again left. As before, I
asked where he had gone; hut Mrs.
Ross did not seem to h*?,r my ques?
tion; and I impatiently exclaimed to
Annie'Fay, who stood near me: "It
is very strange "why Mr. Meredith
thus suddenly takes his departure.
Have you any idea of the'timo of his
"Ho will nu?, return ac uii, Mr.
Brookfield ; for ho-"
Here Annie suddenly stopped, and
casting a quick, confused glance at
my face, she tinned away. I looked
after the little sprite in surprise.
"Why should she know anything
of Meredith's affairs?" I thought;
"and certainly she does, for she ap?
peared strangely confused."
The next week, I packed my trunk
and started off also, with no par?
ticular determination of destination
in view. I visited every studio
and art gallery I carno across, how?
ever, half in search of Charles Mere?
dith, and half despairing of over sce
iug him agaiu. My efforts wero un?
availing. I never met Mr. Charles
At last, I settled myself in a fine
old city, offering me many induce?
ments to remain. Having severn!
influential friends in the place, ]
soon found myself in the midst of al!
the fashionable pleasures then al
their height. Invitations poured ir
upon the successful artist, and im
time was fully occupied. As I en
tered my studio, one afternoon, J
found there an invitation to attorn'
un entertainment given by Mist

heiress is some connection o

She must have noticed my lon
glances at her face, for her cheek wa
crimson; and merely speaking in
oame, she turned away.
I was provoked at myself for allov
ing a mere resemblance to disturb m
so; and then, drawn irresistibly,
turned to look at her again, and m<
her eyes fixed full upon me. Sli
was very palo now; and a strang
thrill ran through me as I once moi
watched the strange resemblance 1
"Pshaw,"' I said to myself, "si
must have a brother by that nam
That is the reason of it. I shall ce
tainly ask her if such is tho case."
During the evening, I fouud t
opportunity of doing so; and I w
assured that she had no brother.

Mr. Brookfield," she said.
I felt rather foolish, and to relie
myself, I told the story of my dei
interest for Charles Meredith. SI
listened politely to tho end; ai
then, niter a few comments, she 1
quested me to return to the roo
which we had left. I glanced at t
burning cheeks and bright eyes, ai
then did as she requested.
I went home that night strange
happy, with Mi.^s Meredith's perm

ears. I did visit her again, ai
many times. At first, becauso s

One day, she applied to.ber nude
for assistance, but iras ronghly told
that if she would "consent to marry
his son, more would be done ! for
them than had. been hitherto. . The
proposition was, of course, firmly
and instantly refused. Rut seeing
that the persecution of both father
and son would soon be uuendurable,
the sisters one day left their uncle's
roof, and betook themselves to. a
place where they woro utterly un?
known. For a long time the elder
sister sought in rain fer'employ?
ment; and, at last, to*avoid further
privations and p?riclitions offered R
helpless woman,- tho high-spirited
girl was driven te a novel expedient
that of donning male apparel."
Her? the thrilling voice nguiu
wavered, and a light was gradually
breaking over my mind. But I kept,
my eyes resolutely on tho door, until
she gained courage and proceeded :
"The young girl now engaged a
room for au artist's studio, and to
her joy, found that her talents and
prod net ions were appreciated. After
a short time, she wus enabled to
placo her sister nt a good Behool,
where her health would be turro to
receive proper nttentiou. For a
time, the young artist labored in?
cessantly, scarcely leaving her canvas,
and givmg herself but few hours for
recreation. Port of a summer was
spent ot a pleasant couutry place,
from which she was recalled by the
dangerous illness of her sister. When
relieved of anxiety on her account,
she returned again to her summer
resort, but only to suffer many days
of illness, caused by over-exertion.
During this illness the lady of tho
house proved herself to bo a true
Christian and a noble, disinterested
woman D&y by day she watched by
the sick bed; and to her, anda warm?
hearted girl in the sumo house, was
confided tho story ot a young, strug?
gling artist. After her recovery, tho
young girl learned that a largo for?
tune had been left her by a distant
relative. Once moro the couutry j
place was left behind, and with
thankful hearts, the two sisters took
possession of their ample inheritance.
And now, though Helen Meredith
earnestly desires Mr. Brookfield's
good opinion, and knows that he
does not appreciate a woman who
has 'once left her proper sphere,' yet
she has told him her story, and is
ready to hear him speak for himself."
"Andi, Helen, having heard your
story, and understanding it, wait
patiently to hear your answer to my
question," I answered, quietly hold?
ing out my hand.
"Then you are satisfied with me?"
she asked, tremblingly.
"Perfectly," I answered, and her
hand was lightly laid in mine. I had
