t.lineiivi !y she shrank !'i i tn expohil.g loin,
lest some one should s!,olV at his iiilirmity.
She had tao; hi him to read, as.d long sinoo
he hal exhausted tho ootitenls of tho little
shol:'. Milton's Paradise Lust aiid Ui
gained, he knew ly heart; and lhmysii's
egliBs was us I'aniiliar as the
faces of the three pictnris that had looked
down fi e m the waits, ever since lie was an
infant. It was very lonely, uud the bars
would come up us he wandered what kind
of a world it w as that thi ol. Led ail around
; ; 1 1 1 . and whether he would always be ao
isolated l't oiii it us he thin was.
"What will Leonine ol Harry when we are
gone?'' saiil Mis. YViLoii with a heavy sigh.
"The gray hairs are creeping in, in the place
of our Mack ores, and our hands are begin
ning to tremble. Ye have Lot lili'.o lo
leave him, and his brothers and sisters are
not forehanded in tlio world. There'll not
be one of them able to lake tho same euro
of It 1 1 ii we've dune, and I've idways felt thai
we've done too little. Oh dear! if it wasn't
for this. I sdouhhrt dread growing old."
"Ood will take care of him, wife," said
the old man l evcreiiliy. "Yo have tried lo
live in his fear, and ho hath never vt for
saken us; though his ways he mysterious,
yet w ill wo trust him. Did you hear, wile,
that Mr. Owen's children are to be put out?"
"No indeed! lias any one taken any of
"Yes, Mr. Smith lias taken Mary. Poor
children, their mother ta'tght them to love
cueh other, und they clung about I heir sister's
neck and wept a a if their hearts would
break; even little vi;a, only live years old,
put her arms about her and plead Tkat.c
don't take .Mary 1 Mamma's gone now, und
t'oc re's no one left hut us; phase don't hike
Mary!' and they all cried and Mr. Owen
"Poor Lvna!" cried Harry and the teare
rolled down his cheeks. "Maybe some one
will take her who wou'l use her well, and
she'll have to shed Liltcror tears than those
were. Father, why couldn't we take her?"
Tho old man Lent his head us if to consid
er. "We're a'most too poor, Harry. Would
you really like to have her?"
"Oh, so much!" and the hoys face bright
ened uii. "I've been so lonely uinee Molly
married; 1 sho'dd love her so much."
"I think wo might, Avii'e; there are six of
(he children altogether, and Kvi a is the
least of them ail. It irn't likely that any
one will want to lake l.er, for it will be
some time before she will bo able to work."
"Como hero, Evna!" and the crippled hoy
held out his hand coaxingly toward the lit
tle girl. ''lYe must be very good friends;
it's been a long time since I had tiny one to
love mo. I can't walk out us you do, hut
havo to sit hero in tho houso all day Ion,:.
You may pick flowers for mo, and I will
tench you to read. Won't that do?"
Tho orphan came shyly, tempted by (he
half a rosy apple, and ever uftei ward they
were fast friends. He read to her in the
long summer days, und made wreaths of tho
wood-blossoms she hrouoht him for her,
hair, and rocked her to sleep on the settee.
And so, by and by, tho orphan almost for
got her wish-!- uud tho cripple his sorrow.
The child grew taller mid her d ecks rosier,
and her eyes bluer, and her hair darker, as
tho years went out and came in. And all
this time iho aged couple grew weaker, and
their locks whiter, and their eyes dimmer;
but Euia took iho Burden of their labor
from iheir hands, and in tho light of her
presence they almost forgot their ycaro.
Evna to ho married to a merchant away
off in tho city! Not that it wan any wonder,
for a prince might havo chosen her fur her
peerless beauty; hut how could they do
without her? For years she had been the
one ray of sunshino that had blessed llieir
home; Hitting hither and thither, bringing
smiles, and hopes, und peace, to hearts that
had been very lonely hut for her, o tlm't
Harry ono morning as ho said, "Dear Evna,
are you going to leave us?"
'Yhy no, Harry, your are to go with us,
and father and mother uro to go too, and
you are to have your room, your library and
your carriage, with a man to drive yon out
to r.ee the city! Oh, it will ho so pleasant,
and you will ho so much happier there than
here, and I shall always ho with you just us
I am now !''
Uy and by Evna moved away to tho city.
How new and htrange everything appeared
to the crippled Loy. The sun came up from
behind a wilderness of houses, and tho sky
forgot to minglo forever with the prairie
grass. lie was taken about the streets, and

'What; a common soldier a hireling for

'Oh, sir!' exclaimed I'adeline, 'he is guilty

'Nay, Colonel i.ai!lier, 1 loved him ere 1

'Not an hour.'
Al tins moment a majestic form cast its
shadow in (ho outer doorway, but il was ob
served by neither of tho pi rsons v. dhin iho

the stranger remained a spectator of nil.

And cl.is.iing Irs arms around the form of

Help! mercy!' exela'mod she.
At tills m iiiunt tho report of a pistol, in
the hands of iho (stranger wo havo betmo
incut. nucd, was heard, and the bullet shat
tered ihe arm of llio ngoressor, rendering
him powerless. J'at whence the shot came
both were tmablo to tell, for no sooner was
the weapon discharged, than tho ijclivuor

into the 100111 by unothrr door. Observing
tho wil l appearance of Ca Mine, breaking
fioni tho inuis of the Colonel, in an instant
he divined tho whole, uud wall a powerful
blow he. laid tho base intruder al hc feci.
J!y ihiu time, tho report of lire arms had
brought a detachment of soldiers to the
spot, who, on entering the room were imme
diately ordered to arrest Anthony, for at
tempting to murder his superior oiliccr. In
va.n Ca lehne protected his innocence they
put him mi lor strong guard,
Ou the following morinng an unusual ac
tivity among the oiliecrs told that something
of more than ordinary importance was to
take place, as each ono hastened lo tlio
piartcrH of tho commandant. Though
court-martial is not a very unusual thing,
yet it is hullicient'y raro to attract great at
tention in u camp.
S ion tho ipiick roll of tho drum told that
tho court had convened, und was ready to
try a criminal. Within a spacious tent, were
gathered u largo number of ollicers in full
uniform. Seated 011 iv raised platform was
Con. Lovick, acting as the indge. Another

in vain Cadeline pleaded with liim; he w as

I10111 the tent.
Ou llio following morning, a little before
sunrise, some soldiers were bunih' engaged
in placing red lings at short interval.! on a
bcauiil'ul plain not fr.r from llio camp. N'o
sooner had this becy nceuniplishod than the
luntiled dri 111 and liio hand playing the dead
march was hi art!. A company of noldiors
drew nei.r, accompanied by a large number
of ollicers, who c.uiie lo witness ihe punish

brought into line. Kvcry movcmeiil idioxviug
their iinxvillin;; ness to pi rforiii tho odious
duty w hich had been assigned them.
All being arranged, the ctuuinundant walk
ed up to Martel, and taking him by tin: h..ud,
he shook it warmly, bidding him farewell,
he gave him permission to address bis com
panions in arms. The mark of kindness
moved the condemned man, and a tear started
to his eje; bill, luckily, regaining his com
posure, ho addressed those who were to lay
iiiin low in death.
'Comrades, I have come hero to die like a
nisu and a soldier; 1 am guilty of no crime;
I have nev er dishonored my country or reg

tuickest of the bin tie, when the guns of the

the grim monster stared 1110 in the fare.
And should 1 tremble now, when I am to

No; 1 consider it as uu honor, and the list
sound that will ever greet my ears will be
the glorious dying music of your own true

The. ho! licrs brought their pieces to their
shoulders, but ninpprd suddenly as the fran
tic Cadel.no ruidied into the ui m.s of her lov
er. 'Oh, Anthony ! Anthony! you must not

cannot bo so cruel as to murder you.'
'Cadeline, there imin hope. I am prepared

'Comma lanl,' said Col. Lcvillier, in an
impatient tone, 'it is past tho time ordered
for the execution ; separate them and per

With great difficulty Cadeline was torn
from the ciubra e of Martel, and conveyed
a distance I'ricu tho spot.
The word iiuxnv was given, and quickly
followed by the second command, pukskmt,

was on the lips of tho commandant, when
a stern voice from a person who stood a
short distance upuit, closely unfiled up,
gave the command to hkcovkr ahms.
