These thinR have passed upon their mournful wuy
Likulbo wild wltid, and liko the nhudows grey.
Suzanne was nol sixteen, and I was
bniely nineuen, when we first met. She
was the daughter, tlie only child of a poor
Protestant pastor near Lu Rochelle, one
of the chief and oldest strongholds of tlie
French Reformed Chuich. 4 .
At that time 1 was about as wild a
scapegrace as you would see in any place
I could name at this moment. I had beeii
expelled from school for heading an insur
rection againnt tlie proper auilioiicies; I
had got into endless scrapes in every po
sition in which my poor father had tried
to establish me; had iinisned when I w9
eighteen by throwing off all restraint,
crossing the water, ami with a knapsack
on my back, .siarted on a pedestrian lour
th rough some of the French provinces,
not wuh any definite aim or object, or in
pursuance of any settled plan, but to exer
cise my usurped liberty, and to get rid of
some of the supeifluous life that would
not let me rest. Of adventures I had
plenty; but the relttiion of these is little to
th" point now.. . AtLa Rochelle, chance,
hs 1 called it ilien, threw Suzanne in my
way.' - Whether she was beautiful or not,
I hardly know. She was utieily uniike
any one 1 ever enw before or since a
liuie thing with a pair of eyes that pre
vented your 'seeing itnylhiug' elje' when
they were b'l'oie yiu a pair of eyes
which, like thnte of the Gorman fairy,
were not only one barleycorn bigger ( I
lliink they were iwo barleycorns bigger)
ihhn avybody tUc'a eyes in the world; but
which loved" you, and repulsed you, and
pitied and scorned you, and laughed with
yon, and cried for you. and made you
"wild with delight, and desperate with de
spair, twenty times a day.
From the first time I saw her, I pur
sued her without ceasing; and we often
met by those accident- that occur when
two people do their best to aid fate in her
airingenienls. At the back of the pres
bytery was a garden full of roses, and lil
ie, and jasmines, and all Boris of beauti
ful old-fashioned flowers that grow an)
where you may plant them, but that can
no more get com mou or worthless for all
their bounteous blooming, than if they
required to be watered with champagne.
Beyond the garden in what is .called a
elm aigneraie; a little wood, carpeted with
close turf moss and wild floweis, over
shadowed with niagnifiiceiit t chestnut
trees, each of which miht lotm a study
for a landscape-painter. 'Only -a paling
and a wicket separated the garden ami Ike
wood; and, ihe hitler being enclosed.jiny
one had a right to wander there at wiQ,
a privilege of which the peasants in )ne
dipping further on; wondering, aa she haa
since told me, ana as J. iittte guessuu men,
if I were there in the wood watching her. j
Presently, with a basket on her arm, she"
would, tuni into the, shady walk; nearer
and nearer came her footstep; fuller and
fuller throbbed my heart; then',, with, her
hand on the wicket, she would pause; had
she changed her mind? would she go
back? and at that thought my soul so
yearned for1 her, that it seemed the influ
ence must act to draw her toward me;
and sometimes I alraostf'thought it did bo;
as, opening the gate, the stepped into the
wood,- and' slowly, with" downcast eyes,
foved to and fro, in search, as I believed,
of the yellow mushrooms that grew in lha
chestnut woods in ''France." - ' ' '
A few 'tJtomnta"ra6i4, mI we-were U
gether, she still pursuing her eeaich,
though many a mushroom waa passed,
many another trodden on; I, pacing by
her side, speaking low, and at intervals,
while she some limes answered . without
looking up, sometimes gave me a glance
of those miraculous eyes in i lieu of other
answer; till at last, youth and love, and
Bolitude encouraging, the hand that at first
tared not to touch hers, wound round her
waist, the lips that trembled to pronounce
her name, pressed hers unforbidden.
And now, shall X .tell tne.trutuf a
truth that many and many a time since
has not only stung me wilh remorse, but
with the thought, that perhaps Well,
well, that may or may not have been. But
to my confesf ion:
'' Young as I was, Suzanne was not the
first woman, I fancied I had loved; and
though the feeling I had for her was
widely different from that with which I
had regarded others, still it was not then
pure.'and deep, and fervent as it ought to
have been. ' At fir-t, much as I loved her,
much aa I desired to obtain her lore, I
had no thought of rwlissolnbiy uniting my
destiny to her; I had no idea of marriage.
I contented myself with letting things run
their course, whatever they might tend to;
with taking no thought, nnd making no
engagement for tho future. .
. At last our meetings ;u the chataigneraie
became thing9 of daily occurrence;, and
we needed no subterfuges of sketch-book
and mushroom-baskets to color them.
Sweet, pure, darling Suzannel Who, ie
her position, at her. age, could have with
stood the dangers of the situation as 6he
did? She lov-d mo wilh all the dwpih
and warmth of n profound and pasnionale
nature, yet in the midst of her abandon,
there wns a purity, a starting, instinctive

from my sleepless bed, unu wrote,, to the

but adding that if he would overlook pres
ent and material 'disad van! .-jos he might
trust that no Bin of otnissionor commission
ou my part should ever cr ie him to re

"Vou are aa honest lad, ha said. "I
will not now enter into 'tha question of
your youth and, of Suzanne my thild'a

Here wns a difficulty I iad neither an

mind tacitly to admit my mistake, any ask
my father's consent to my ..marraigei was
it in the least likely that he would, auder
all the circumstances, accord it? (
Never mind, I must make the attempt,
and so admitting to the pastor that 1 had
nol as yet provided for such a Lotitin-
gency, he left me to writs to my father.
A "week of agonizing suspense passed,
during which I, in accordance kvilh a
promise made to Suzanne' fithef, never
sought to meet her nay, to avoid a shad
ow of suspicion, never eveA' went to our
chestnut-wood, to get a peep of hor iu the

Wheu I first awoko from the stunning

And now at twenty-one, when moat
men have hardly mado their first 6tart in
life, I, a father and a widower, .had passed
the first stageR of my manhood's career,
and was about to gather up' the shattered
fragments of my youth's hopes and pros
pects, and try and patch them together to
carry !.to through '.he rest of it.
At first my fathernow all afiliotion and
sympathy', since the change my marriage
had brour-ht, urgod my telurning with the
child to England. But this a strange
feeling, partaking perhaps more of jealousy
than anything else, made me decline doing.
On Mabel, "Ma-bellu" as Suzanne used to
call her, half-believing lha' that was really
the translation of the name, l ad now con
centrated all the love and. interest of my
life. Here Bhe was all my own, I was all
hers; nothing-, nobody, could ny olai
to the love, the time or ihe attention of
either, bo as to distract it from the other.
No one cowld exert induence or authority
over either to the exclusion or prejudice,
in however tdight a degree, of the other.
My child had no mother; no one else
therefore, however near or dear, should
in any degree supply her place but my
self. I wot Id lie all and everything ia her
and if the never ni'n-sei' her mother, it

A foolish thought perhaps, perhaps a sel
fish one, yet who shall say, seeing from
what it doubtless saved me?

Then off again, like a butterfly, opening
my books; putting my watch to her tar;
and looking solemnly curious at the sound,
turning over my clothes, scribbling wild
flourishes on my paper with pan or pencil,
and, quick as flight of biid, away aain to
announce to Nannie, that "le grand chero,"
tlie'great darling, was awake, aud so hun
gry for breakfast. '
And so through tho day, however I
might bo occupied, sho wa9 , never away
from me for an hour. . Light and restless,
like some winged thing, she was to and fro,
up and down in the house and garden, all
the live-long day; dancing, einying. talk
ing to herself, when I wa too occupied to
attend to her; no more distuibing me in
my busiot' hours thm tho snnohino that
streamed in at my window, or the swal
lows that built and chirped in the eaves
above it. Long walks we used to take to

clinging to tay hand, now springing off
after wild flower or berry, till lap and arms
were full; all beaming mid joyous until a

smail money I always carried in my pocket
to provide against such emergencies, was
brought, into request, and yiven with
willing hand and gen'ile words of pity and
condolence, and tor some paces further the
little heart and brain were yet oppressed
with the impression of the sight of suffer-
In the evenings, by the dying sunlight
or the winter fire, she would climb to my
knee, claiming a story; and, while I related
sortie remembered history, or improvised
some original ono, there she sat, with rap
tured face, gazing in mine, those ruby lips
apart, showing tlie glistening teeth; , pul
ling in now and f.lian t, ucotluu,
paiitting long at the close of the narrative
to muse over it and fully digest certain
points that had made a deeper impression
than the rest of the tale. Then, ns the
light fell and the stillness , of evening
deepened into night, the head drooped on
my breast, and, liko a folded flower, the
blosaom that brightened and perfumed my
lonely life. 6lept quietly, whilu I, sad and
silent, wondered mournfully over the past.
1 look back now to that per od of my life,
and again it is not I whom I see- silting
there before me. I' is one I knew, whose
affections, cares, and troubles were as iny
own lo rae; but whose thoughts, opinions,
and itspiraiiona were quiie other than
those I now hold, and on which 1 now act.

So there I used to repair in the glowing
July days, with a bketch-book, to look
business-1 ke; and, lying on Ihe grass, or
leaiiii g againsi a tree, myself half hidden,
waich for Suzanne. Ho it is all before
me now bef re me now, and in me, and
about me Good heaveu, how clearly
after all these years!
The broad ruyged trunks of the trees;
the sunlight streaming with a soft, given
light thioiigh the leaves; the warm, ripe,
still heat iliat quivered before my half
closed -eyes; and there, there beyond,
through a narrow vista, an opening, as i
were, into heaven, in the guise of a little
bit of the pasioi's garden, blazing, in sun-lip-in
and flowers. Ou lUh my eyes would
fix till the angel 6liould come to give it a
holier light, fcoiue.imes I waited through
the I'iig hours in vain; sometimes I saw
her pass and repass, coniuig and going
like alternate sun and shadow; ts the place
seemed hiigliieiied or darkened with her
presence or departure. Then, how my
