Will died when I was a little
girl. I 4o not even remember

your face always wears; throw

These words were spokea by
Florence CampbelI,Just turn
ing sixteen, and a gayer; toot
thoughtless spirit never lived.
Ile'r light curls danced around
a lace radiant with smiles And
soft blue eyeslull of romance
and adventure, always beamed
with pleasure, . This was her
last year at school, and she fan
cied , visions of "love's young
dream" in store for her.
The young enthusiast did not
notice the painful thought rush.
inn tlirrmolt hat A nnt'o otii.wI
and continued "Many a worthy
heart would crave your love,
and glory in' your beauty' and
accomplishment; and the i.n
puisive girl threw her arms
around, her ' aunt's neckj and
Kissed, ner passionately. .
Floronce did not overrate heT
aunt's charms. Hers was a
beauty wild but impressive..--.
She had been naturally a spir
ited, vivacious girl, but after
her marriage and the death of
her husband, it was rarely that
her merry, ways would show
themselves, llor hazel, eyes,
large and , luminous, r radiant
with tenderness, assured you
that there' was much in her
life's history untold. ' Dark
waves of her hair drawn back
from her face displayed a brow
intellectually fair and interest
ing; and her'potlttfljul''ver)f
graceful figure gave a bewitch
ing charm to her tout ensemble.-
h Seven years she had been a
widow and orphan, and at the
opening of our sketch had just
passed her twenty-sixth birth
day. Her parents left her an
independent fortune; and after
disposing of her residence in
Kent she came to London, and
made her home with her only
brother, Florence's father.
But we have digressed.
Aunt Mary listened absently
to her niece's remarks, and
when she ceased speaking said,
"Hush, child, you will kill me
with your idlo Wordj." And
she rose to leave the room.
This movement sent a fresh
burst of sympathy through
Florence's young heart, and
she clung coaxingly to her
"O, please, Aunt," she cried
"please do not leave me; I will
be quiet. But come and give
me some of your rich music; I
am just in the mood to hear
something mournful and pene
Arm in arm they sauntered
through the hall to the music
room, where Mary sat down to
a "grand," and Florence threw
herself on the lounge to enjoy
the musical treat.
It was a cool, delightful sum
roer afternoon, and refreshing
breezea stole in the open win
dows, perfumed with delicate
fragrance from the garden, and
mingling with the soul-stirring
strains from dear Mary's magic
touch.' . She had never played
with grander ; effect, her , very
soul seemed speaking through
her fingers, : .1 ...7
. As she struck the last note
of her "Lartues de Nuit," Flor
ence broke forth. with- "Suoh
music! as if from heaven!" And
do you know;- Aunt Mary, as
lay here, ".spell-bound, as it
jvere,'.i" 'thought if instead, of
me.ituere naa. been some ar-
ient, IjopefuJ suitor recjinin

Stgrs ' .ana.. leij mexioso my
eyes to dream away this inel
ancholy which your music al
ways throws over me."
Their musical tete-a-tete was
disturbed shortly by the sum
mons for tea.
Florence's father wan a man
of considerable wealth, and
early each autumn repaired to
his resort at Twickenhom. His
wife died when' Florence was
yet a baby, and" now his family
consisted only of Florence, his
sister, and himself. -
During Florences' vacation
she strove in every way to.
rouse Aunt Mary to enjoyment
Her gayety often Baddened
Mary, but this she never knew.
.The grounds lod down to the
river's bank where they would
often stroll and sometimes take
the little boat from its moor
ings and row along the shore.
Mary's favorite nook was a
choice grove J of evergreens,
just to the right of the boat
house, ornamented with rustic
seats, looking out on the water,
and up the picturesque and
Tea over, Aunt Mary said,
"There is a glorious moon, Flo
rie; just the evening for a ram
ble. . "How romantic you are to
night, darling Aunt Mary; and
your mellow eyes are sparkling
like diamonds!" ;
"I'm ready; we must take
Dash with us, lest some bold
knight should interrupt our
As they stepped off the ter
race, Florence - gave a clear,
quick call, and Dash came
bounding over a fence panting
and wagging his tail in thanks
for his honored escort. Among
tho evergreens, and reclining
in a comfortable rustic seat,
tno two. young ladies sang
"Murmuring Sea," and what are
the "Wild Waves Saying" with
exquisite taste anti skill. At
the close neither spoke for
a moment. Florence finally
broke the silence:
"Aunt Mary, I have so often
wondered what this secret sor
row if, which you have always
struggled to hide from papa
and me. But do you know that
at times I have caught discon
nected sentences which have

William -ftaVibp Ka;d ;al nobl.
friend in Ralph Attfoofc His1
fatherVe.state joined ours; and
we were constant playmates
from early childhood. T Ralph's
was a proud, aristocratic nature
with.. quick blood coursing
through every vein, giving his'
manly beauty a fascinating
power while he was yet a boy.
As I grew into womanhood he
treated me with more formal
respect and checked his boy
ish familiarity for a more dig
nified bearing, for he was three
years older than L One lovely
morning, while the dew was
still resting on tho rich foliage,
he came for me to mount my
pony and ride with him. As
we were riding through a beau
tiful grove, walking our horses,
Ralph dropped the rein on his
horse's neck, and leaning to
ward me his arm stole around
my waist 'Mary, said he, this
is our last ride for many a lonp
month; ere two suns have set
again, cruel, dangerous miles
will separate us.' I uttered a
cry of surprise, and clinging to
!iim the reality of how dear he
was to me rushed through my
excited brain. 'Yes, Mary, he
said, to-morrow I must leave
for Canada on business for my
father, which I fear will keep
me from you a year. It is very
hard for me to leave my Mary,
but I am the only son grown
up, and my father does not look
for me to hesitate.' Ralph had
never spoke with me so ear
nestly before, and I had never
asked myself if he loved me.
He continued: 'If I am spared to
return to Glenwood Hall, will
this fluttering heart beat for
me stillP With burning tears
falling on my cheeks he caught
my trembling reply, and be
stowing a silent, kiss on my
lips, he slipped a ring on my
finger. '. Hero is the ring yet,
Florie, but its giver will never
come back. I was young and
giddy, just your inexperienced
age, and after the farewells
were over and Ralph gone, I
scarcely realized that wo had
ever loved. . It was from this
time, Florie, that I brought all
the sorrow upon myselt. In a
few months I went with my
parents to Brighton; they knew
nothing of Ralph's attachment
I met there a dashing young
gallant who gave me no rest
frohi his escort' and attentions.
Still, I was fascinated with his
handsome face and elegant
manners; and at last, when he
threw himself at my feet I felt
quite sure that I adored him.
Ralph's love was forgotten, my
ardent nature succumbed to
William Raynor's offer, and in
three months more; we were
married. Two months later I
met Frances Atwood, Ralph's
sister, and inquired if Ralph
would return shortly. They
had heard from him that week,
and he then thought it would
be impossible for him to return
home at present He had nev
er written to me during his ab
sence. In fact, there was noth
ing said about a correspond
ence when he went away. But
I concluded that his love, like
mine, had been but a childish
fancy as I then thought ' The
wedding day arrived, and I ar
rived in my bridal dress, enter
ed the church, leaning on my
father's arm. Then to my sur
prise and pleasure, I saw that
noble looking groomsman who
accompanied Williaih Raynor
was none other than Ralph At
wood. ' He had grown 1 1 even
handsomer in those few months
of' his absence, and I found
difficult to keep niy eyes from
him." When the ceremony was
over, his eye rested 6n me ibr
a moment with a proud admi-
ratioiy and he hastened toward
