"No, no, no." The words, were re

Dear mother it was just like her.
Her heart was filled with "charity that
ufferethtilong .and is kind," thinking
loviwgly'of Jeverypereon;' and besides,
wtidahe, "who" kpows but this child
'waa sent to ourdoorto.be. cared forj.and I,
shall we turn herawavl" And so if
was that Maggie Lee dropped into the
quiet and beauty of our home. We
fuund no plnce, ia the neighborliobdfor
the,little wanderer, and so suffered her
to remnin with us. It would have been
crtiel to have ,torn her ajvay from a life
she loved so dearly. She was tmplial
ically a child of nature, loving with u
petrhjss passion ilie flowers, birds,, and
ali tilings glad and free. It was 'impos
sible to restrain her. Mother found
herself too feeble to curb the fetierless
spiiit, and so beyond the little reading
leson eaohsdy',iaggit'. roamed at her
own free will.
I miht have done. mu:h for Maggie
liad 1 chosen, but I too, was a thought
less ehiltl, too much absorbed in mv own
happiness to care much for others. But
as .the summer wore away, Maggie dis
played a passion fo marvelous in its in
tensity that I also became interested in
her Whenever 1 would play or sing,
I would hear steps under the open win
dow 'the roses would be parted and if I
looked quick enough I would sees little
eager hee looking through the. parted
curtains. One day she" grew. bolder and
coming in stood by the. piano while I
played. I shall ever remenjber llje
brightness, the earnestness, in her little
Ree.'- "Oh, sing that again," she cried,
as I finished, singing a. touching little
ballad, and the tears stood in her great
Would you like to learn to play,
Maggie?" I aJed.
"0. -wonldu't I,-Miss Mm tie'? oh
"And will you, he a very god girl ifj
I teach you?" I queried., ,The promise
was earnestly, tearfully given; so that
bright afternoon Maggie took .her first
lesson in musir. It was an era in her
life a turning point. From that hour
she ws a changed child. She seemed
to feel that shi,'.too, had something to
live for something lo do. Slientutlicd
her reading lessons unweniiedly, became
particular in her peisonal nppe:irance;
but in musk1 her progress .was wonder
ful. Her little fingers seemed almost-a
part of the jnsti.ument.'sb well did they,
do their pari, while her voi:e I never
heard its like before, nor. siricc was
deep, rich, passionate, yet clear as tin;
voice of a bird. I was proud of my
ptipif, ami mother of heritudenl we
began to like "Witchie."
It waa October, and. Harry Gordon
was with me Harry, my betrothed.
Oh how I loved how I' worshipped
that man, just as he worshipped every
thing good and true. It was his love,
the anticipation f hi visit, that had
gladdened the long days of the summer.
We were walking together among the
late flowers one 'jotgeoas afternoon,
Hany and I, when Maggie?) voice came
floating out to us iIirough',ihnnpen door.

DHiiicularly adapted to her voice i
Harry stood likeione entranced, then,
without a word, drew-me to the parlor.
Maggie didn't notice our entrance, but

song, her little hand tan overlie keys

music now so passionate, now so plain

I should have beeu jealous, had she

and November came dark and stormy.

Maggie improved very rapidly daring
the winter. She seemed determined to
atone for her early neglect. Mother
began to Uglier. I, loofelt an in
terest in her which was' growing to
something akin to a sisterly feeling.
She was evidently, as Harry had said.
'a genius, and -would be.a star one of
these days.' ', -
A year it seemed long to me. hut it
passed away, and brought to me my'
Harry. October broughjt to me its
gorgrons'beauiyy'.its autumn splendor;
but, above all, it brought to me my dar-
ling my betrothed. He spoke to mfc
cheerfully.rtenderly, yet sadjy, for rea
sons which he explained Uv me ami
which should have satisfied any woman;
he told me outmarriage must be defer-
red three or four yenrs.
"Vlt will not J)e long, dear Maude

"If for then, forever," I answered
proudly. I did not really mean lo seal
my destinjjilien. Iwjaa piqued, disap
pointed; I had looked forward lo an
early bridal, to a beautiful home. I fell
for the moniuiil thai hcwas.carelcss ol
my- wishes. 1 thought, too, Mie would
compromise with me; but he only put
me gently from him saying:
. 'And is this.the end 'of 'all our love
amrjoy, Maude? I ha've" laid my plans
wisely your judgment must say ihcyi
areior the best. If you are in earnest
aay gi.ud bye, and.all is over." M
"Good-bye, then," he replied, and he
tinned away. I 'never knew until that
