Thc ?tory of Life.
BT JOHN O. SAXE.
Sav what is life? Tis to bo bom
A helpless babo; to groot the light
With a sharp wail, as if the morn
Foretold a cloudy noon and night;
To wocp, to sleep and weep again,
With sunny smiles between; and then?
ind then apace tho infant grows
To be a laughing, puling boy,
Happy despite his little woes,
Wore he but conscious of bis Joy;
To be in short from two to ten,
A merry, moody child; and then?
And theu in coat and ?ronsors clad,
To learn to say the decalogue
And break it; an unthinking lad
With mirth and mischief all agog;
A truant oft by field and fen,
To capture butterflies; and then?
And thon, at last, to be a man;
To fall in love; to woo and wed;
With seething brar. to scheme and plan;
To gather gold or toil for broad;
To ene for fame with tongue or pen;
And gain or lose the prize; and then?
And then, in gray and wrinkled Eld,
To mourn thc speed of lifo's decline;
To praise tho scones iu youth beheld,
And dwoll in memory of Lang Hyne;
To dream awhile with darkened ken,
Then drop into tho gray; and then?

THE PRICK OP A DKEAN.
She never analyzed hor feelings-sho did
not try to think; Bhe jost followod that voice
out into her new world. His soul had call?
ed hers-Bhe was his: whether ho would
come to claim her, sho could not tell or won?
der. It was the beginning either of a new
existence, or it was the spell which must
wear tho last bodily link awoy, and send her
spirit to wait beyond until he had finished
his'work hero and could join her.
You shall not say that it is absurd. I am
telling you tho exact truth;, I have no need
Oh, the days! tho days!
Never a day when she did not expect him
to appear; no one entered the room sudden?
ly during class that she did not stop breath?
ing; she never walked out that her heart did
not rush on to such expectancy that she
wa? as tired os if she had taken a week's
Life and strength waste rapidly in such
fevers. It is possible to poss through a state
of fooling like that-to live beyond it-to bo
so changed that ono looks back on tho old
self with wondering pity, perhaps genuine
laughter; but when it carno upon poor little
Dolores, she had been like a drooping lily
that only needed ono moro strong gust to
break it down.
The Roleighs had guests ot thoir house;
other people who had country-seats in tho
neighborhood were established therein, and
had brought troops of friends to enliven
their solitude; and the village itself was a
favorite resort during the summer months
for1 persons fond of making wandering no?
mads of themselves at that Beason.
Gnyetios of all sorts were naturally the
result of theso combinations, and the reports
thereof came np the hill into the quiot of
Minerva's halls, in spito of tho precautions
employed by the Abbess to prevent any
murmur from the frivolous world penetrat?
ing the cold dignity of those classic shades,
and sorely distracted the youug birds whom
she and her attendant owls wero endeavor?
ing to train into chanting the notes of thoir
Moro than that; an invitation to a pic?
nic for tho Lady Abbess. Sho was to bring
throe or four of her elder charges, who
would study all the better after a little
amusement. Miss Haleigh said; and, above
all, the little Cuban teacher; sho must como
at any hazard, for everybody was wild about
Whereat tho Abbess shook her stately
head, in doubt as to the propriety of a
teacher of hers performing such extraordi?
nary feats with people's brains; still she
was loth to offend Miss Haleigh, and in her
grand, high-priestess way rather enjoyed
occasional relaxation upon her own account.
She would reflect. Ah! the party was for
the next day, an impromptu affair, and,
therefore, certain to be pleasant, Miss
Haleigh said. Should she consult Miss
Frost as to her choice among the girls to bo
honored? Mira Frost, better known as
Cerberus among the pupils; but the Abbess,
not being aware of that, thought of her by
her chilly patronymic. On tho whole, she
would not; the girls who were most certain
to deserve the pleasure by thoir application
and regard for thoir duties were sure to be
among the ugly, awkward squad, and the
Abbess felt that on an occasion like this,
she ought to present her ohoicest, as far as
While she was shaking her head, and
looking np for coansel to tho bust of Pallas,
which decorated her study, a rumor of what
was in store crept-no mortal could have
told how-into the class-rooms, and, as it
made its woy along like an increasing wind,
drove every girl who caught it out of her
senses on thu instant. Who would be se?
lected? That was tho quostionr and for?
tunately an hour's rcspito from lessons gave
the eager creatures aa opportunity to dis?
e?os the matter. Discussion became ani?
mated, and conflicting opinions were ex
Eressed in tones equivalent to what would
ave taken tho form of a "stand up and a
ring" among boys. The ugly girls tried to
believe that diligence and subordination
would come ont triumphant, but wero
laughed to scorn by all tho beauties; they
wore not going to be asked to repeat Latin
verses or explain geological formations.
As if goodnesss would count here, indeed!
And what would? was the angry cry from
among the group of tho hatchet-faced.
Then the beauties looked at each other, and
tossed thoir be.ds and said: "Never mind
.what-not any musty old 'ologies, at all
At last the Abbess sent for four of her
queen roses and the Cuban, and then all
know that thc flat was pronounced. From

that moment, those who had beon most un?
remitting in their efforts to obey rules and
to be Btadious, felt, as- many of us have
done at times, that thoogh there maj be
truth in the old proverb, that "virtue is ita
own reward," the reward is usually BO very
slight it ia not worth having.
Poor girlsl there iras no help for them,
no comfort, except such as their female in?
stincts might teach thom to find in abusing
the Abbess, and rnking up unpleasant*me?
mories in regard to the group she had
chosen; and they proved their claims to ap?
proaching womanhood then, for they dis?
sected tho brazen things in very creditable
stylo for such young anatomists.
"You will like to go?" tho Abbess said to
Dolores, when the triumphant quadrilateral
had disappeared. "You will enjoy a little
Dolores was coughing, and there was a
bright red spot on her cheek; her pulses
had all started at a gallop with the earliest
words. Tho Abbess noticed for the first
time bow delicato sho looked, and checked
n brief exordium sho had contemplated in
regard to the frivolity of amusements in
geuerul. A sudden thought pricked her
conscience a little; tho girl bad been over?
worked, and a day of pleasure would do her
good, Really sho must take time to sec
that tho creaturo got rest, and had some?
thing strengthening administered out of n
medicino bottle. Disciplino for the mind,
calisthenics, and a certain abominable touic
prepared by a physician iu whom sho had
unlimited faith, would, tho Abbess be?
hoved, set right all tho ills that flesh or soul
is heir to.
Never nuything prettier walked down thc
hall to meet tho Abbess than Dolores, next
day, in her festal dress of rose-colored mus
lin floating about her in diaphanous clouds
half covered by a great shawl, which hail
been her mother's, of that marvelous lace
work into which the Spanish nuns used tc
net tho long hours in their gloomy cou
"I don't know how I could havo fanciot
you had not looked well lately," said tin
Abbess, warming into genuine admiration
"I feel like a bird!" cried Dolores. "Le
us go; I breatho again-I live!"
Tho Abbess was somewhat shocked at he
exaggerated manner, but luckily nono o
tho young ladies were near to bo contami
nated; so she only gavo her a gentle cautio:
conceruing tho decorum necessary to b
preserved on overy occasion by tho sex
abovo all, by such members of it as held
place in her learned halls.
"Lot me forget restraints to-day!" plead
ed Dolores, too wild with excitement t
dread even the Abbess. "Let me li vf?. Tc
morrow I will como back. Let mo hav
this one day."
Really tho Abbess was at a loss what t
answer. She eyed her with surprise, like
venerablo owl looking at a cardinal birt
then contented herself with admiring h<
dress, and requesting her to summon tl
Tho pic-nic was in a delightful wood, an
a pretty sight tho gay groups looked whe

thom. In the depths of her chilly old bea
tho Abbess was charmed and flattered at tl
sensation which her arrival croated, not ta
ing tho four protty girls and our Cuban in
her consideration of the matter as fully
another might have done.
Miss Raleigh claimed Dolores at once.
"You darliug little souorita!" said sh
carrying her olV to join her special grou
"we have all been dying to know you sin
tho day wo peeped into tho school-room,
havo caught our tropical bird at last I" si
exclaimed, as she led Dolores up to h
They all surrounded her at once-thr
or four women, charming enough to bo al
to like other womeu-elegant, high-br
women, such as Miss Raleigh had a facul
of gathering about her.
"This is Mrs. Haydon," sho went on i
pidly; "aud this is my dear May Summe:
I can't call you Miss Grafton; wo may s
senorita, mayn't we?"
Then she presented tho" men, and M
Raleigh had the most charming and origil
manner possible, and could do whate\
she liked in tho prettiest way; and, besid<
sho was a great heiress.
It was very pleasant, and if her maur
was a little patronizing, Dolores could r
notice it then; moreover, it was no vul?
feeling which animated Miss Raleigh; s
only felt ns if she had caught some ra:
beautiful bird, and wanted its charms to
Everybody was devoted to her, and a

and tho expectation all tho while at 1

Just then he came sauntering towt
them; another moment, and be was sitti
near Dolores. She bad heard him spf.
her name, and had gono straight up thrcu
tho ivory gates into tho full sun.
She knew that there was a great deal
laughter and idle conversation-that i
herself laughed and talked like a wild thii
but he was very quiet.
Presently the little group was forced

She did not even wonder, as other drei
ors wonld have done, if it could be rerd;
intoxicated herself with the happiness
tho honr; she managed to live as much i

He talked about her island homo, wi
? - r
he knew well; be was familiar with the de?
tails of her story, and bad tact to avoid
whatever could be painful. He EO quickly
understood her; he comprehended from her
unconscious words how galling and wearing
her life was, and he pitied her; ut least that
day should be pleasant. Guy Haleigh was
a delightful companion. He had all his sis?
ter's brilliancy and originality, and a man?
ner toward woman that was the perfection
of chivalrous courtesy. His very voice had
a caress in it; I don't kuow any other way
to express what I mean. It was fortunato
that he was not a ilirt; he did enough mis?
chief as it was, without being aware of his
But how could he, or even a mau given
to believe in his owu fascinations and fond
of essaying the strength thereof, have
thought tho results of that one afternoon I
wero to provo important? Sho seemod
little moro than n child to him at first, and
ho only desired to maleo thia day a sunny
spot in memory, on which her fancy could
rest dining coming days of loneliness. But
as they talked, sho astonished bim every
now and then bv somo passiouato utterance,
which showed how deeply she had at heart
such subjects us had touched her feelings;
for it was true of her, ns it is of so many
impulsive women, iu regard to what inte?
rested her she could uot be said to reflect
sho only felt.
Guy found himself well repaid for bis
efforts to brighten tho young exile's sky
a little; sho was a uew revelation to him in
tho way of womanhood. And Dolores talkod
as sho had never done to any one; she
could not remember that ho was n stranger
-could only givo herself up to tho might
of ber dream, and bo led on as passively as
wo are sometimes in sleep, through a vision
in which tho most wonderful thi?gs seem
natural; and sights and sounds so unearthly
that wo could not find a miruo for thom in
our wnkiug hours, aro at once recognized
and perfectly understood by some myste?
rious self withiu.
I think this sounds somewhat transcen?
dental, and I am afraid overstrained, jot
it is truth that I am writing-truth at least
to those unfortunates whoso physical organ?
izations seem to bo only bundles of nerves
for tho soul to play on at will. But I might
write pnges of this sort and lenvo you no
nearer a comprehension of tho matter, un?
less it is already a mournful fact with you
that no after reality can ever bo half so
beautiful or powerful as ono of thoso wild
dreams which como to a heart that has been
feeding on itself in its dreary solitude.
His sister and thoir party aided to make
tho hours golden to Dolores, for whom
they had all been seized with an enthusi?
asm; .md during tho whole afternoon they
made a littlo queen of her. The school?
girls looked on in wondor, and perhaps
thought they might as well have stayed up
on tho hill among the owls as to como down
there and watch the Spanish teacher bo set
up on a pedestal for all those men to wor?
ship. The Abbess had her doubts in regard
to the propriety of such marked attentions
being bestowed upon one of her hired sub?
ordinates; but Miss Haleigh managed that
she should bo kept in a state of serenity,
and it all did not matter: Dolores was the
feature of tho day.
Was sho happy? Great heavens ! if Dives
could have gone straight up over the gulf,
do you think he would have been happy?
She sang to them her sweetest Spanish
songs; she talked with hor bewitching little
accent, her conversation rendered moro
charming her foreign habit of choosing the
strong expressions which she had caught
from books, ber faco gathering new beauty
as her heart soared higher and higher into
tho light. And while she sang, Guy Ha?
leigh was bending over her; his rare smile
was for her, his pretty, earnest speeches
netted themselves Uko sun-beams over ber
Look you! it is sad to write theso things,
because they aro true, however much we
may deny and laugh them to scorn; and
what we ought to be ashamed of is not their
verity, but the fact that life has only left us
the ability to scout or derido it.
"Now yon must not sing any more,"
Guy said; "theso people aro merciless."
"I think think they are all very kind,"
Dolores answered; "everybody in your
world must bo perfect, if all aro alike
"They catch a littlo light from your radi?
ance," he said, smilingly; and the poor,
hackneyed compliment was so fresh and
new to her that it was like a beautiful
poem. "You like to dance, I am sure," he
continued, as he saw the musicians whom
he had engaged coming up over the hill.
"With all my heart!" she answered, aud
then laughed nt herself. "I know-you
smile-that is not what one says-it is bad
"Very good English, I think, and entire
truth, I am sure," said Guy, laughing too.
"Yes, indeed, so I believe."
"Then I am glad I thought of it. I told
my sister I was sure after sun-set it would
bo cool enough."
"Ok, of course. It is so pleasant here.
Ah, tho dear day! how faded to-morrow will
look by tho side of it."
"I am afraid that is tho worst of great
enjoyment," said Guy; "it has a trick of
making ordinary days rather pale."
"No matter, ' she cried, recklessly; "the
red ones get burned in so that we can't for?
He looked so earnestly at her, with such
a grave expression gliding like a shadow
over his emile, that she said, hastily:
"Wus that wrong? Ought I not to have
"Indeed, it was quito correct," ho re?
plied, "and just what I have often felt,
though I could uot have expressed it so
prettily; our cold English turns into poetry
in your mouth."
"But yon looked so grave."
Ho could not well tell her his thought,
which bad been one of pity as ho listened
to hor words, wondering what that undisei
plined nature could do with life, and if it?
self would b? kind and gentle since she lind '
no one to guide.
"I think I must have looked grave be?
cause tho day is so near gone," he said.
"But we won't think of that. I always
shut my eyes"to the dark arid let it come
suddenly; at least, theu I rau't see how
black it is."
"I believe that would be wiso. After all,
the actual blow is seldom so hard to bear ns
tho anticipation of the sorrow."
"Oh, tho dark word!" she cried, with a
shiver. "Don't speak, it-don't make mo
"You ought not even to know tho mean
ing of it," be answered softly. Then he
saw her fuco change, mid led her carefully
away from the .subject; but she knew that
ho pitied her, and it was a pleasure to bo j
his debtor, much as the sympathy of ordi
nary people irked her.
Their conversation was broken in upon, 1
ns it had been so often: several of the gen- 1
tlemeu came each to claim Dolores on some i
preteuce, vowing that Guy was neglecting
his duties, being in n sort host.
"Not I," said Guy. "At the tirst I washed
my bauds of the whole affair. Miss Sum
mers, I call you to witness."
"So you did, until we proposed sending
for the senorita," replied Miss Summers,
So it was for her that he had tuleen all
thc trouble? Sho did not speak, but, I
swear, many a man would have thought
himself well repaid for daring toil or danger
just for that ono quick glance of her great
"I think bebas his reward," Miss Sum?
mers whispered to his sister. "What a
little witch it is! Ii I were a man-"
"Yes. You needn't tako tho trouble to
finish. Fournie praise couldn't go nigher.
But, indeed, I am so interested in her, I
can't let her stay at that horrid school." j
"It must bc dreadful," Miss Summers t
"Dreadful? With those chattering mag

After sun-set they danced under tho trees, i
