" I oaunot help his beliefs. I cannot

Miss Sabine sighed.
" I b"g you do not look bo melanclioly,
annty," laughed Margaret. " I conld not
help being born without that valuablo ap
pendage, a heart."
" Truly. aunty," she continuod, after a
pause, during which time Miss Sabine sat
eoberly knitting, " I do not wish to bring
any pain to Dr. Stolberg, but what
can I do ?"
Misa Sabine mado no reply.
"If you aro so anxious about hira,
aunty, why do you not warn him your

" Good morning, Mtss Horton," said Dr.
Stolberg, taking the seat to which Miss
Sabine motioned him. "Is Miss Mar
garet at home ?''
" She is up-stairs ; but before I call
her," said auut Sabine, who never wasted
time in discharging a disagreeable duty,
" I want to say a few words to you."
"You are not sick, Miss HortonY"
asked the doctor, who fancied his profes
sional services were wf nted.
" Oh, no I am well enougb. It's
about yourself I want to speak."
The doctor's face took on an expres
sion of amazement, which deepened as
Miss Sabine went on.
" I can't help seeing, Dr. Stolberg, that
you are falling in love with Margaret. It
will not do you any good. 1 hare lived

most thirty-five years old. I ought to be
able to take care of my own heart."
" You are angry, Dr. Stolberc iust as I
expected that you would be. Well, I have
done the Dest that I could for you."
" I am not angry," said the dootor, but

When Margaret entered the parlor Dr.
Stolberg was at the piano.
' I have brought a new duet," he said,
after responding to her greeting. " Are
you at hberty to try it 1"
Mirgaret assented. They had played
tho duut through several times. when the
doctor, suddeuly wheeling on his stool so
as to look straight into Margaret's face,
" Your aunty warned me this morning

Men are the most unreasonable creatures.
If you reject them, they reproach you for
having encouraged them. If you try to
warn them beforehand, they stand on their
uij;uity uu msinuaie inat you are rerus

thankless ungrateful set, any way."
" You seem to like them pretty well,"
said aunt babine, dryly. Spite of her
vexation Margaret laughed.
" To tell the truth, aunty, I am pro
voked. i expected better things of Dr,

sophically. " All men are alike when you

While yet in her teenB she had sneut u

at Margaret's cottage. Intituacy ripoued
Into trleudship, and then ou the doctor'a
part into love. Ile had never apokep thia
love ; inere was no neea when witti Mar
garet every look and ton 3 revealed it.
Margaret was not a fllrt. She had too
much intelleot, too much princlple. She
belonged to that more dangerous clasi
unconscious coquettes. Thero are womon
who can no moro help charming the men
whom they moet than a bird can help
ainglng in thoeunshino.
" What a lovely afternoon," oriedeMar
garet, oa bIio aat by the wlndow after din
ner. " I believe I will go out and gather
somo autumn leaves for wlnter bouquets.
A walk will do me good. I havo not boen
out of tho house for two days."
Margaret mado hersolf ready, and was
IUBt going out of tho door when Dr. Stol
lerg drovn up.
"Miss Margaret," ho said, "I heard
you oxpress a wish for eonio autumn
leaves. There are bouio brilllantly col
ored ones on the clump of treea jmt thia
slde of the red schnol-houso. May I havo
the pleasuro of taking you there ?"
Margaret had resolved to be on her
diguity when the dootor called again, but
the prospeot of a ride on this sunny Oc-
tobor day inaae her torget her vexation.
Dr. Stolberg was unusually tilent dur
ing the drive to tho school-bouso ; but
Margaret wns ao absorbed in the beautiea
of earth and sky that she did not notice.
When they reached the clump ot ttees,
the doctor helped her out, and then
turned his borse so that it could feod on
the crisp, green grass that grew along tho
Marcraret was atandingon tiptoe, trying
to reach a branch of Bcarlot leaves wliirh
huug juat above ber head. He broke off
the branch, but inatead of handlng it to
" It was not simply that you wanted
leaves that I asked you to come hero. I
have a confessian to make. I was unjust,
brutal to you this morning. I would not
believe that X could ao diBhonor my man

my pride. I love you, Margaret lovo
you so that the day which passes without
a word or a Iook Irom you is a lost day to
me. 1 have not asked your love, because
I know that you could not give it now.
Can you forgive my words this morning V
He looked so strong and brave as he
stood with the maple branch making a
crown over his head, that Margaret felt
foraninstant an almost irresistible im
pulse to cry out, ' I will love you," and
f all into the arms that would open so
gladly to receivo her ; but the feeling'waB
gone betore she apoKe.
" Juat because I believe your love to be
strong and pure am I grieved that you
have given it to me, for I have only
friendship to give in return."
" I know that you have only iriendsbip
to give now."
" And shall have only friendship in the

"Do you not see, Dr. Stolberg," said
Margaret, her eyea filling with tears,
" that you are feeding your love on hopes
which I ought, which f must, destroy V I
know myself much better than you can
know me " she heaitated, then with a
blusbing face went on. " I am twenty-
five years old, and yon are not my first
lover. Men have ollered me love who
could give me wealth and position."
" Aud I can give neither," interrupted
" I honored them as men," continued
Margaret, not heeding the mterruption

" I will not talk of love. I will not aak

" Will you promise here that you will

that you will try and content yourseli

Dr. Stolberg was ailent.
" I knew you would not. You are all

that aome time I will love you. Dr. Stol

iuargaret, angriiy. "uther men have ot'

what could abe say 7 She resorted to au
esseutially feminiue wenpon. She aat
down on a stone aud cried, partially from
vexation, partly from other ieeliuga which
she could not have analjzrd.
The doctor made no attempt to comfort
her. Ila stood leamng agaiust a trto uu
til she arose. Dashiug the tears from her
eyes with an impatieut movement of her
hands, she aaid :
" I want to go home."
" As we came for leaves, it might be
better to gather aome," suggeated the
Margaret began picking leaves with lit
tle regard for their claim to beauty.
Dr. Stolberg brought up tho horae; as
he took Margaret's hand to help her to her
faeat, he aaid :
" I know that I have vexed you, but I
cannot help it. I will make no promise
that I caunot keep. I ahall try in every
way to win the greateat good earth cau
give me your love. The Holy Buok tella
us that when Jacob served aeveu yeara for
lUchel, they seemed to him but a few
days for the love be bore her. I can wait
as long as Jacob, Mirgaret."
" But, Dr. Stolberg, it is not just to you."
" Cau you not truat me to take care for
myself 7" he interrupted, with a tono of
the old pride.
Margaret heaitated, then putting both
hands into the doctor's broad palms, and
lookiug straight iuto his eyes, said :
"Dr. Stolberg, I give you no hopes of
ever winning my love, but how and wheu
we shall meet iu the future I leave toyour

her hand iu his strong, firin grasp. Ile

" Goodneaal" commented aunt Stbiuo,
after Margaret had retumed aud laid her
leavea upon the table. " Did you go clear

"Why iu the world don't Dr. Stolberg
marry that girl, if he's a goiu' to 7" com
mented the village gossipa.
The doctor spoke no more of love. Ile
brought new booko, new music, fruits
and llowers, he praoticed, read and aang,
uutil Margaret, iu the present pleasuro,
forgot possible pain in the future.
Sometimea when sho remembered his
earnest " My love muat aoon or late com
pel yours," ahe would try and look into
her own heart and aee if it wero etill uu-touohed.
" It is a very close, nnusual friendship,"
aho would say. " Stlll, it is only frlend
ahip." Aunt Babtno was not so certain. She
wondered if it wero not somo feeling warm
er than friendship which mado Margaret so
impattent II tho doctor did not como at
his usual time. So " out of aorta " if any
thing kept him away for a dny or two,

beautiful temple which Marcraret had

Une night as Dr. Stolberg was aeated
at Margaret's piano, thero broke in upon
tho music that cry so terrifying to a vil-
lagor, " i) ire l J lre l "
As tho doctor and Margaret Ilstened,
they heard in a moment tho rumbling of
theengines, tho jangling of bells, tho com
mands of tho englnoer thundered through
his trumpets, tbo " Aye, aye, air I " of the
men mingled with tho cries of the crowd
haatoning by the house.
" Whero is the flre 7" shoutod the doc
tor from the window.
" Tho osylum I " como back in half a
drzen voices from tbe street.
" 0 God I " cried Doctor Stolborg. " We
must aave tho children I " And waiting
not to snatch hia hat from tho rack he
rushed into the street.
A branch from the orphan asylum in
the neighboring city had been establiahed
at Wilton. Just now the building was
crowded to its utmost capacity by chil
dren who had been aent to Bpend tho sum
mer in the conntry.
City peoplo wait for the fire to come to
them, village people go to the fire.
Aunt Sabine waited only to get the jar
of limo water and oil which aho alwaya
kfpt ready for burn8. Then Margaret
and aho joined tho crowd that was atill
hurrying by the house.
Heaching the fire, they found a Bcene of
the wildest coufusion. Women with
shawla over their heads, children who
ought to have been in bed, men who were
of no moro service than children, were
running against each other crying and
wringicg their hands.
" Tako this I " ahouted a man, thrusting
the headboard of a bedstead into aunt
Aunt Sabine took it meeklv. and bav

Margaret, atarted olt tugging the head
" You take this," cried a second man,

Margaret marshalled her charges through
the crowd to a house on the other side of
tbe road, then went back to see what elae
she could do.
Spite of the misery the fire was caus
ing, Margaret could not help stopping for
an instant to gnza at tbe splendid spec
tacle. The main building of the asylum
was stone, flanked on each side by a wing
of wood i at the end of the left wing, and
connected with it, woa a small brick
building. The right wing had caught
fire firat, and was entirely consumed.
Whero it had stood was a gleaming wall
of coals. The floora and wooden parts of
the atone building were going f t. Ever
and anon a long tongue of greedy flame
would thruat itself out the empty window
places, as if aeeking aomething more to
The aight that atopped Margaret waa
the falling of the main roof.
There woa a caruival of flre. From
every wiudow burat forth masses of red-
black 11 me. As Margaret gazod, there
arose above the crackliog of timber and
the hoarse cries of the liremen a clear,
piercing shriek, joined, before it died
away, by a cry which, once heard, can
never be forgot. The horror cry of a great
Turuing with those near her, Margaret
saw, staudiug iu a wiudow of the buru
iug left wing, a little child. It stood with
arms stretched appealingly toward tho
crowd, which was powerless to help.
' A ladder I a ladder I iu God's uame a
ladder," cried a voice which Margaret
recoguized as Dr. Stolberg's.
A ladder waa brought and placed atthe
window ; a thouaaud anxious eyea watched
the doctor aa he ran rapidly up. There
waa not a momeut to lose, for already the
child waa wrapped in smoke. The doc
tor had taken the child iu his arms, when
a second cry arose from the excited peo
ple, as ladder and building fell together
iu a eeethingsea of fire.
With that cry in her ears, Margaret
fell in a faiut. When she came back to
consciousness two women were atanding
near her talkiug of the acene just de
acribed. " Horrible I Burned to death in an in
stant; auch a noble young man aa that

ways men like him who are taken, men
who are needed in the world."
Margaret waited to hear no more, but
hastened homeward as faat as her trem
bling limbs would bear her. Down by
the piauo, where less than an hour before
they had aat together, she fell upon her
The veil which hung before her heart
had been burned away. She knew now
that shlfloved Dr. Stolberg with the one
lova of her life.
" 0 Gd I" abe moaned. " This is too
bitter, too bitter; why need I know this
love of mine, when tbe knowledge of it

But drath does not come at our call, and
after a time the violeuce of her grief spent
itnelf. Still ahe kept repeating the weary
" Come back, if only for a moment, that
I may tell you of my love."
Suddenly ahe heard the cliok of the
gate, aud a quick step up the walk.
" It ia auut Sabine come to tell me. I
cannot, I oanuot endure it."
With a vague feeliug that ehe would
hido herself away, Margaret atarted for
As ahe opened the door ahe Baw Dr.
Stolberg staudlng in the hall. Margaret
waa not atartled. To her overatraiued
miud all waa olear. Dr. Stolberg was
dead, but God had heard her prayer and
aent baok to earth hia spirit.
" 0 Herman 1" ahe orled. " God haa
aent you baok to hear it. I love you, I
love you I" And Margaret sauk faint into
the arms of a very aubstautial ghost.
Foaslblv it waa well for Dr. Stolbertr
that ho was forcod iuat then to foreot the
lover in tbo physiolan, He laid Margaret
upon ine soia, and applted restoratlves.
vvnen the white eyollds began to quivor,
he seated himself at tho piano and played

" Everybody auppoaed I was ; indeed, I
