"What can I say to oomfort yon, dear
Augustus?" and Anabel took her broth

"My affioted brother," murmured Ana
bol, "how deep the waters you are called
upon to go tnrougn.
Augustus shuddered, as if ha felt the
wild dashings of the wares, and said in a
plaintive voice "Dear Raohel, how amia
ble she was!" ,
"Very dear Augustus."
"How considerate, how devoted to
me!"
"0, exceedingly." , ,
; "And how fine an appearance she pre
sented! and he raised nis eyes to the
portrait festooned with blaokorane. which
delicate attention he had himself paid it
that morning.
Anabel too, raised her eyes, but was
silent as sbe gazed upon the pictured
form of the departed Raohel, so angular,
so dark, and so frowing.
"I don't think you ever did Raohel's
charms justice Anabel. She was a lovely
woman.
"0, brother, I fully appreciated her, I
assure you, I did,"
"And you do not do justice to my depth
of griet Are you aware that I am a
mourner forever? Poor, dear Rachel, I
have lost all in losing thee!" And again
the tearful eyes were raised to the grim
Raohel, who looked down with an ex-
Sressionon her face which said, "In
eedl" There was a silence of several moments,
during which Augustus looked thought
fully into the fire. At length he said
"Hand me my desk beside you Anabel;
it will be a relief to my feelings to writs
an obituary."
"Don't think of it at present, dear Au
gustus: you are not strong enough for it
now. Only think of the trying scenes
through whioh you just passed."
"Hand me my desk, will you? it is a sa
cred duty I owe my dead.
While Augustus was engaged in this
touching work, Anabel was pondering on
the propriety of dispensing with the
black crape folds on her new silk dress,
"bo that I may where itin colors," was her
inward ejaculation; "for who knows, Au
gustus may marry again before 1 have
cone mourning for dear Rachel!" She
checked the thought "How dreadful!"
Augustus, the deeply sorrowing, marry
before she had time to get out of black!
It was a satanio whispering surely, and
grossly unjust to the disconsolate wid
ower. She was roused from her sombre
meditations by the voice of Augustus:
"This is what I have written, dear sis
tor, and if you oan offer any suggestions
of a tender nature, pray do so:"
. "Departed this gloomy vale of tears for
a blessed home of joy, Raohel, the be-.
loved and honored consort of Augustus ;
Childs, Esq., and daughter ond heiress of j
Peter Smidt, Esq. Beautiful and accom
plished, amiable andntellectual, devont
and charitable, generous, devoted, charm
ing in every respect, thus has fled to an
gelic oourts, amid the joyful shouts of
the oherubio army, orving weloomet wel
come! one who walked the earth in se
raph's guise."
Here Anabel gave a slight cough to
oover something like a laugh, and Augus
tus paused a moment and asked plaint
ively, "Do yen object to anything?"
"O no, by no means. It is so very
touching, pray proceed."" '
"How deep the woe into whioh her nu
merous friends have been plunged by her
lamented absence in the realms of bliss!
But their loss has been the angels' gain.
But her husband, so fondly attached to
this dear object what words oan depiot
his overwhelming grief grief that will
prove as lasting as it is deep? Bnt here
we drop the curtain; too saered this woe
for the common eye. Suffice it to say, he
utters the sentiment of the submissive
. Job-i-'The Lord hath taken away-h lessed
be the name ot the Lord.' "
"How pious! how touohinc! what Ba

"Ah! poor, dear Raohel," moaned Au
gustus piteously.
"Come, now, take something to sooth
you. and then go to bed. Good night;

Augustus answered, "Never, never,
and he continued repeating like Poe
dismal raven, 'Never, nevermore!' until
the door olosei npon Anabel, and he
was left alone with hjs everlasting
Kiel, and dismally draped portrait ot the
it Raohel looking down grimly fromthe
wall. :
On reaching her room, Anabel threw
herself into a ohair, and laughed more
heartily than was beooming, considering
that dear Raohel had only been plaoed
in her grave that morning. -
"I really do believe that after all, Au
gustus will die of grief. You have no
idea, Myrt, how devotedly he was at
taohed to dear RacheL"
"Indeed!,, and Myra raised her proud,

He never will get over it, I assuie you he

him in supposing that he married Raohel
for money! Oh no, it was genuine love
that induced him to take for his father-
in-law that vulgar, fat old plebeian, Peter

too, I know he will end it by beooming a
minister: his terrible grief has turned all
his thoughts heavenward.

quietly, for they were very far from that
uireoiion uoiure.
Weeks progressed, bnt Augustus re
mained shrouded in woe: not one ray
of peace had warmed up his deadened
heart tie would write on nothing Dut
black-edged paper; covered every article
that had belonged to dear itachei with
blaok crape; shut up her chamber, and
every time he nassed the dosed door
shuddered as if he saw her nale chost

at night before retiring, and paid his
devotions to hor pictured form almost
hourly. He kept the last pocket-handkerchief
she had used carefully folded up

in tissue paper among his shaving arti
cles. His sister began to think that he
would never get over it, and as to his
marrying again never, never!
Don't even hint at such a thing,. Ana
ble, he said with horror, when she ven
tured to suggest that, perhaps, one da,
he might replace the lost RacheL I
meant years and years off, dear Augustus,
she saia almost timidly. Of course, not
for twenty years', or perhaps fifteen.
Hush! hush! I venerate Rachel's
memory too deeply. I loved her most
devotedly. Pray, never speak in this
heartless strain again; it is very repulsive
to my feelings.
l only meant to console you, Augustus.
You take a most remarkable way of
administering consolation, when you
know that my sorrow is as deep as the
day when I buried Rachel.
But von must feel so lonelv. persisted
Anabel
Lonelv? Have I not mv sisters and
Rachel's treasured memory? No, Anabel,
I oan never marry itgain. All I ask is a
quiet rest beside Rachel's coffined form.
How shocking ! Don't, I pray, indulge
in such gloomy thoughts.
i on ask me to be gay, said the dis
consolate widower but you ask an im
possibility, something utterly impractica
ble, a state of feeling I oan never again
reach.
"Oh, no, Augustus, not gay that you
can never be again only a little less
gloomy. Don't thing about dying, and
the grave, and tombstones, and all that
sort of thing."
"When I die, coutmued the beroft
one, "you
will see that I am nlaoed

have engraved 'They were lovely in
their lives, and in their deaths they were
not divided.'"
"Yes, brother," said Anabel, with a
little hysterical sob.
"You will have the last pooket hand
kerohief Raohel used plaoed over my
face."
"Yes," replied Anabel.
"My will you will find in the tin case,
I have left everything to Myra and your-

sen.
"Oh, thank you, dear brother. How
considerate in you!"
"My death will be your gain, Anabel,
and the bereaved sighed submissively.
"lay precious brother, don t suggest
such a thing. Butyou know I have long
wished to go to Jsurope, and yonr la
mented death will give me an opportunity
of doing so." '
"(Jo, go, enjoy what I leave you,
Anabel. The day will come when, like
me, you must lie down in the dust I
have heaped np riohes."
"For me to enjoy! How kind in you,
brother. Good bye!" And Anabel
extended her hand.
"What do you mean?" said Augustus,
drawing back angrily.

"Hush! huBh! not another word on
this sad subieet"
Three months passed away slowly but
sadly. Raohel was in her grave, and its
long shadow fell gloomily upon Augus
tus s heart and hearth. A weeping wuiow
had been planted over the dreary mound,
ana waved its long branohes solemnly in
the breeze. A few fragrant violets grew
out of poor Raohel's head that is, the
head 01 her grave; and at her feet a white
rosebush nourished in charming laxu
rianoe. It was a dainty little spot, poor
Rachel's grave, and here Augustus paid
a visit every time he spied the ohuroh
yard gates open Here he stood on
Sunday to think of Rachel, perhaps, or to

through the ohuroh-yard into the side

who tear to shreds the characters of thoir
more fortunate sisters, who win in the

said Augustus when Anabel told him of
sundry remarks that had been made
concerning him. .- -
"But it was not an old maid that elan

lady. Mrs. Mountioy : says she has
watohod you in ohuroh, and you look out
ot the window with one tearful eye on
Raohel's grave, whilst the other is
smilingly exploring the pretty face of
Miss Tillers. She even says she saw you
on last Sunday gathering a bouquet from
Rachel's crave, and present it to Miss

you with her sweetest smile, little think-

I don't believe a word of it I know how
devotedly attached you were to dear Ra

and even took the watering pot in your
hands andwatcred the plants to make
them grow, and how you treasured np in

it to keep profane hands away, and how

Four months and two weeks then a

its Bister tombs in the ohuroh-yard. It

Montjoy; are you not man enough to
know that this is the deoeased Rachel
herself, weeping over her own ashes? It
is most touchingly appropriate; we wives

creatures had cause to weep for their own
deaths, we are the ones. Scarcely is the
