"Well, if. lever!" crioil honest Mts.
Gaskiu, staring delightfully at the tricks
of the trained monkey that wait attached
to Michael Pierri'n barrel organ.
The noon nhadows slanted along
across the green sward in front of the
fann-housc door; the tall white lillies
and thickest of the blue larkniinrs droop
ed in the .hot sunshine, and the corn
fields at the back of the house nodded
their multitudinous green heads iu the
occasional zephyrs, as the fanner's wife,
with the little ones clinging shyly to her
skirts, stood in the door-way, listening
to the drone of the organ and little Bian
ca's shrill, yet sweet voice, as she
diluted and sang, clattering her casta
nets high in the air.
" And I don't believe -she's a day older
than my Maggie," said Mrs. (ia-kin, as
little (ieorgie, scarcely as yet able to
toddle without assistance, crept across
the short, dandelion starred grass to
put his penny into the monkey's with
ered palm. "Dear heart alive! there's
something sad about it, too!"
And when the song and dance was
finished, Mrs. (iaskin beckoned to the
brilliant-eyed swarthy elf who stood
pushing the wavy, jet black locks away
trom her forehead.
"You're to come in, my dear," she
said, "you and your father "
" Hut he is not'inr father," interrupted
the child almost impatiently.
"'Well, the foreigner, anyhow, and
get a slice of my home-made loat and a
good dish of milk. I'll go bail ho won't
cbject to that."
Little Bianca turned and chattered
something to her companion. He dis
played his glittering white teeth in a
smile, and bowed obsequiously to the
farmer's wife. Mrs. Gaskin led the way
iu, and with bustling hospitality spread
the board for Pcroni, Itianca, and even
the poor shrivel led-faec monkey.
"Isn't shea pretty child ?" whispered
Mrs. Gaskin to her old maid sister, Miss
Drusilla, and she was right. Jiiaucti was
very beautiful, in spite of her s:n
browncd skin, bare feet and ragged scar
let frock. Her eyes large and liquid,
were full of the deepening sunshine of
her native Italy ; her features were small
and regular, and her mouth a; ripe and
rosy as the biggest strawberry now
ripening on the vines under the south
"Ah!" sighed Drusilla Peck, "it is a
pity she should have to tramp round
the country to sing songs and dance for
And when Bianca turned away, fan
tastically returning thanks for the enter
tainment sho had received, by kissing
Mrs. tiuskin's toil-hardened hand, the
good woman's motherly hcaut f.iir'y
ached for the lonelv, lovclv child, who
seemed as if it were adrift upon the
Not until the party of foreign adven
turers had been gone more than two
hours, did Mrs. Gaskin discover to her
unspeakable dismay that one of her sil
ver spoons which had been heirlooms
from tier dead and buried irrandmother,
and the little silver mug that David, her
eldest boy, had in the days of his baby
hood, were jjone also.
" I knew it ! " dolorously groaned Mi6S
Drusilla. "Those foreign jugglers are
all light fingered. What else could vc
cxnect. Amanda Ann?"
Mrs. Gaskin fairly sat down and cried
not so much, it must be confessed, for
the battered silver mug and antiquated
spoon, as for the ruthless dcmolishmcnt
of the many castles in the air she had
built around the sweet face of and fairy
figure of black-eyed little Bianca.
" I never, never will believe in any
body ajjain," sobbed tlio farmer's wife.
The purple shadows of twilight were
jnst stealing down over the corn fields,
ana massing a urvaray sun ui cuiaro-
oscuro over lull ami slope and misty
river vale, when Mrs. Gaskin, rocking
Georgia to sleep on her lap with one ot
the sweet, stereotvixMl old cradle song-,
that all mothers know by heart, was
startled by a light tap on her shoulder.
"aignora: encu a soil voice in tier
"Why, bless my soul!" cried Mrs.
Gaskin, "it'a the little foreigner!"

I saw it, bat dared not speak, for he
is cruel in his wayward moods, and
bears a heavy band. To-night, when he
lay asleep under the hedge, I stole them
from his pocket, and here they arc."
Mrs. Gaskin stared first at the unex
pectedly recovered property, aad then
"Sit down and rest yoarself a spell,"
said she, "before you go back. Yoa're
all oat of breath."
"I am not going back," said Bianca,
resohstely. "Ue weald beat mc to death.

"What else can I do? I shall beg
my way. I can sing, I can dance; I
have my castanets here under my shawl.
Oh, never fear. Bianca Xifauto need
not quite starve while there are berry
bushes by the roadside, and clear colli
water in the glen."
"That's all nonsense,"" interrupted
honest David GaskiirV voice from the
angle in the porch, where he had sat
until now unnoticed. "Mother, she
must stay with us."
"God bles you for the word, father,"
Mrs. Gaskin cried, starting up. " It's
what I'd most wish for in all the world."
but we've eight of our own, anil it's a
hard row for you to hoe, and I didn't
just like to ask it."
" Can't turn a utray Iamb away from
one's door," said David, huskily."
And j?o little Bianca Xifniit'o staved
under the sheltering shadow ol the farm
house roof until one day, a straii"er
frojn the city, who was down fishing in
the" cool trout .streams of the woods,
chanced to hear her singing iu the twi
light. i never ncani a sweeter voice in my
life," said Mr. Miltbrd. " It should be
"She goes to singiu'-school twice a
week with Dave and Maggie, said Mr.
Gaskin, with the air of one who feels
that he has done his full duty.
"Singing-school.! She should go on
the stage. Such a talent as that ought
not to be hidden away in a napkin. "
The upshot of it was, that when Mr.
Milford went away he took Biauct with
nun, to tram iter tlciu-ious young voice
as lie liciicvctl it was capable ol being
"That nightingale throat of hers will
make her fortune vet!" predicted Mr.
"She'll forget us all," wept poor Mrs.
tiaskin, when the hourot parting came.
"Xo, luanftii-i, dear, I won't!" cried
Bianca, with a passionate burst of tears.
"I'll love you always always for 3011
were my friends when I had no one in
all the wide world to turn to."
Five ears afterward-, and the voice
whose wondrous strains George Milford
had prophetically heard, had entranced
the musical world. Bianca Nifanto was
the prima donna of the operatic stage
the can tat nee whose ballads were worth
a gold piece for ever note; and she had
come down to spend the summer with
her old fri'-'iids in the brown-roofed
As beautiful as ever; star-eved and
cream-skinned, with lustrous black hair
worn like a coronal about her head, and
unconsciously jfraecfiil ways. David
Gaskin, her playmate of olden times,
looked at her with ninte wonder. Could
it bo M-s-sib!c that sho was the little
Bianca who ustiil to climb the h.13- lofts
Willi him in -search of eirirs, and follow,
dog-Iikv, at his heels when he went at
twilight to Ijnii-e homo the cows:
" Ah, Bianca," he said, almost envious
ly, vou are a rich lady now, and a great
singer. I wsiiHler3ou remembered us.
Uianca turned lu-r sou eves aiipeam-'Iy
" Oh, David, whom should I remcin
her, if not vou !"
David got up, and began to pace up
and down the floor.
" I suppo-c that 3oung man at the ho

" What voiintr man ?"
"And the xeiillemun with the team of

iiocently. " lie is vety wealthy too."
" It must be fine to "have such a train
at one's heeN," said David bitterly.
"Is it my fault, David?" said Bianca,
almost readv I o hurst Into tears. " Can
I bid them stay away ?"
Bnt David, determined at all hazards
to be displeased, had turned sullenu in
to the ho.tse.
"-Mamma," cried tiiunca, lor in mis
name she still addressed good Mrs. Gas-i-

But Mrs. Gaskin too went into the
house without answering. What could
she say to the beautiful caatatnee.
Would it lie fitting to make answer:
" My son. hard workin-r farmer's lad,
has ventured to fall in love with 3ou,
queen of song and beauty. Even so the
feeble glow worm aspires to the calm
slitters ot the star."
But Bianca could not but notice that
the e3cs of the good farmer's wife were
swolen and red the next dav.
"Mamma." she cried, "what is the
matter? are vou sick?"
" Heartsick, child," Mrs. Gaskin an
swered, with a great convulsive sob,

surprised his friends and bereaved his
relatives by suddenly severing all his
native, social and commercial connec
tions and emigrating most dcsolatcK- to
Kansas. What drove him or drew "him
to that state, which was just then in its
lorlornU celehratod "bleeding" con
dition, onI a few sagacious drawers of
shrewd inferences could iiicsS. These
allowed other folks to speculate wideh
over the question for a time, and then
gradually made it known that disap
pointed love had been the cause. Such,
indeed, was the whole truth, as it had
been, strange to say, iu many another
exaciiy similar case. iho sensitive
gentleman, alter a sin courtship, iu
which even his excessive modesty
thought that it detected some casual
encouragement, had ventured to ask the
proud huh of his heart to be his wife,
and had been ruthlessK desolated by a
musical negative. The maiden confessed
some gracious approval of his customs
and manners, but could not think of
anything "so perfect I3- ridiculous" as a
marriage, and the blighted swain left
her willi bitterness in his rcjefctusJ-Jieart
and Kansas in his disMHHtaaai"1!.

a mere outline of his social progress.
In the city of Atchiaou, where the care
of business ultimately sufficed to divert
his thoughts from morbid contempla
tion ol the lackadaisical past, he formed
the acquaintance of an amiable lady, ad
mirably qualified to make ain discern

thenceforth the current of his life ran
smoothh as a woodland stream; small
likenesses of himself being among its
current events, and growing accounts
among the deposits of its "banks
The memory of all that had been un
pleasant in hi earlier life was thus wash
ed away, or retained only as the fitful
shadow of a dream, and time went on
without fresh incident worthy of record
until within about six months of the
present date. Kven then the immedi
ate occurrence did not surest much of
romantic interest. Iu answer to his
w.fo's advertisement in the Atchison
Patriot for a servant, there applied a fe
male Haggard of aspect and mieral-lv
dressed, but with traces of better da3s
in her voice and manner, who intro
duced herself as an American woman,
surprised bnccd in her search for a
Western livelihood, and professed will
ingness to accept the situation ujKin the
proposed pecuniary term'. The wife,
witii a womanly instinct in such mat
tcrs, suspected that all the applicant's
story was not vet told, and evinced an
inclination to reject her; but the hus
band, influenced by some S3mpathetic
appeal, tor winch ho could not exactly
account, in the woman's haggard coun
tenance, favored her acceptance, and thus
ai-iun-u iu a 11c new servant, wiitic re
fraining from an3 further confidences

awkwardness at first iu hr household
duties, won her mistress' heart at once
by an almost immediate devotmp to the

her, and thus was created a bond be

entered the elements ot a more equal re
lationship. After hi nrst vague sensa
tion of peculiar 3mpath3 upon survey
ing the worn face of the new-comer, tfie
master of the house troubled himself
with no speculation as to the cause of
that sensation, but dismissed all save
ordinary notice of his wife's domestic
helper from his mind. The wife, more
than satisncd with her household assist
ant as noted above came quickly to
trust her in all things; aad, having oc
casion to visit relatives in a neighboring
town, asked her if she woald be willing

with a bundle in her hand, ho could only
think her insane when sho advanced
swiltly to the arm of hi chair and said
hurriedly that she was leaving his home
forever. Ilisdigum would not allow him
to pretend even tha't he felt an regret for
what a servant chose to do thus whim

added : " You don't seoiu to care much,
air," he drew back lrin her with a
haughtiness resentful of the implied lit
miliaritv. One long look she gave, un
der which some niysterioiis shade of the
past crept into his untvalmng fancy,
and then, in a voice which was the past
iuclf, she spoke again: "Ah, you do
not know me, (calling him ly his first
name) as I know you! You are a
gentleman, with a tine, happy home, a
wife and children ; and I am'a servant.
We were nearer equals once when I was

happiness that I can hope for in this

and was gone before the over
whelmed spectator of his dead 3-outh
could use voite or hand to detain her.
