my boyhood, and whioh, in the hot
of happiness, some malignant fail

not fiction, but a history."
Frederic de Ia Tour had, indee<
some reason to suppose that his fo
tunes were the work of a fairy
wand; for, in tho course of one <
two short months, by a seeming
inexplicable stroke of fortune, 1
had been raised to happiness ai
wealth beyond his desires. A frion

At the same time, on a given si

Frederic to enter. He did t

at full speed.
"I have received your note, sii

with an air of confusion. "I see i

Of course .Frederic replied polit

He accepted au invitation to tho par?

young' man ?oon found himself-an
established visitant at tho house of
Lady Melton. She, a rich and beau?
tiful widow, was encircled by ad?
mirers. Ono by one they disap?
peared, givirg way to the poor clerk,
who seemed to engross the lady's
whole thoughts. Finally, almost by
her own asking, they were betrothed.
