Ha raised his hands to heaven in
agony of spirit as if he would have smote
the brother who was so treacherous, and on
his lips a curse had framed itself. But it
1 did not pass into utterance. A second more
and his promise was strong upon liim, the
bitterness of his heart was changed to sor
row; it was not hatred. .
"With desperate energy he seized the reeds

springing out, he ran without ceasing until
be reached tho farm.
As he entered the great kitchen ho cast a
hurried glance around. It was tcnantless,
und no sound, no cheery voice within the
house called him.. Without the men wore
"Not returned," he said, "Well, 'tis bet
, tcr it should be so."
Into the house ho passed, and the door of
bis room shut heavily behind, as if it shut
out life and hope, as if it shut the door
ngainBt peace upon his heart.
One hour, two hours passed, and then he
came out and called to one of the farm ser
vants, bidding him to harness his horse, and
bring it to tho door directly.
He had passed those two hours fighting
with the agony of his heart, yet outwardly
' calm, ne had loved the girl with all his
. manhood, and in the depth of his soul now
; , kilievcd she did not love him, but that htaf
brother had taken bis place in her affection.
She should never know what it had cost
him to yield tu bim, but his brother he
would never see again.
"When Gerald left the house he was ac
coutred for . traveling, and he strode
utraight down the path to where his horse
Beside it stood his brother, laughing with

"Going to town, is he?" he was saying.
"Queer, Gerald, love-mad, decidedly love

tones,1 and the thought crossed bis mind
"Is he such a villain?"
Answer it ho could, to his sorrow, and he
- Frank met him, and exclaimed, laugh-
, '. Well Gerald,' your mad half hour has
certainly come now., . Poor boy! I didn't
think love was such a serious complaint."
j Then first he noticed hib brother's altered
manner, and a fear of some coming evil, he
knew not what, came over him.
Gerald went straight down the path to
where hit horse stood ; and Frank, suddenly
withdrawing his hands from their accus
tomed place, bis pockets, went after him.
The fellow had taken shape at last.
"Gerald," he cried, 'fcvhat is it? Where
are you going? Tell me, what is the

be jrulped it down, and with an effort
forced himself to answer quietly, if coldly.

Into a coscy sitting-room of Itutland hall
tho rays of tho October sun arc falling red-
y bright. They rest unshadowed upon the
orm of a fair young girl half lying, half
sitting, upon the couch near the deep em
brasured window, through which she gazes
upon the unglituess betore her. Her face,
so sad, so thin and white, is very painful to
see, nna tho great saa eyes, unnaturally
brilliant, toll too plainly a painful tale.
Tho thin, white hands move nervously, and
as if seeking some objection which they
never reach, as if holding out a welcome (o
one who does not come. ;
Ida Rutland, for it is she, is changed
indeed. We 6aw her last that day of
broken hopes, of peace destroyed, of for
sworn faith and broken plighted troth. On
the terrible night when the news of his do'
scrtionhad come to her, her life had died
Proud for self, she had gone about hiding
mo wouno open in her heart; but sne had
pined then and she is pining now. She had
resisted long, but had to yield at last to tl
lever which was burning up her young life.
What nau she to live ton she asked herself.
Nothing. But kind friends who penetrated
her secret grief, preached tho proverb,
"Where there's hope," and told her he
would come back. No, she said ; there was
no hope. He believed her guilty, aud for
her the lamp of love was out.
And there she sits now m tho fading red
sunlight, and glare subdued by the closing
year; and looks out upon the still green life
of earth upon the tresh green lawn befor
tha window, and watches the deadf leaves
lulling, let who shall say what she sees.'
ah that passes before her eves ir.av be as
nothing to her. Nor is it.

and the bright death-telling eyes are xei
Beside tho couch stands a smad table.
and upon it ure two articles. One a picture
drawn in water-colors, the other a hand
kerchief, white and torn at one corner.
Sometime these two objects seem to bear a
great interest to the fair, fragile girl, and
she will turn her head from the window and
seem to gazo at them. She moves her
and toward the handkerchief aud passes
lcr hand over it, as though it were some
thing with life and with n nature to bo cu-
ressed. She does it dreamily, unconscious
ly, and touches it always at the ragged edge.
W hat is the story of that rent? Is it that
she feels how frail and slender are the
threads which hold its parts together? Does

Como back to die? He, with his tall
form, broad chest and bronzed face? He,
with tho years still young upon his head?
Yet nature, which, disown her as
wo may, compels us to yield to
her demands," nature had cried out
"Homo," and ho had yielded. Better to
dio there than with strangers, unknown,
porhapsnuibirried.tr j f t -
And yet, whoa spring has clothed the
land ( again in all her beauty,1 it scarcely
seems tho timo to dio. Still, I would
rather die in the spring-time, and . draw
my last breath of untainted nir, to lie at
last beneath Bomo young, fresh budding
tree, than to leave tho earth in her Jerm of
darkness and chilly wintering. Homo such
must have been felt by the king, stern
ruler though ho; has been,.' who could not
dio within palace walls or cloistered abbey,
whoso soul demanded that his eyes should
look upon naturo in ; her beauty, it
could not out "ot door or window."
As hn neared tho village of his home he
asked himself, in doubt and irresolution,
why had he returned? And he answered
himself, that timo had thrown a doubt
upon words which, when he had heard them
uttered, seemed to bear but ono meaning

jealous soul hastily nlaccd tmmi

solve the question to forgive, and ifci'.ee
be, to bo forgiven.
When, toward the close of that Mny-dav
too train reached its journey s end, GeraL
Edwards, for it was he, looked once more
upon the well-remembered scenes,
As the chaise bore him from the station
ami ho turned his face toward tho villacn
home he had left in such great bitterness of
heart, who shall say what feelings, wha
emotions passed through his breast i Was
the old anger dead? Was the hope ot lif,
The chaise rattled on through the deepen
ing gray of evening, nud the traveler passed
uirougn oiu and well-remembered spots to
ins Home. Did recollections of old ani
happy days come crowding in upon him
like, "troops of friends," to welcome his re
Welcome! From whom! From net
not from her she was dead, he knew but
lrom his brother.
So he had returned to see the old place
to hear once more the voice that had
laughed with his in childhood, and, dying
to lie near her who even yet he found rilled
the one place in his thoughts and in his
heart, and the tress of whose bright gulden
nair laid upon las breast still
love of her.
I should give you a sacred name oi love,
me where I am going; I answer, awav
from here where I do not know, I do not
care Whv? Because I did not know tl.t
when I believed I had found happiness
here, I waa standing in tho way of yours.
I am awakened now, and though you break
my peace, I am Klud thut you, at least, gain

boyhood is in my mind now. I keep that
prom&o; I yield to you; I lcwo this place
forever, Be happy in your new love, but
not in my sight. I say good-bye for the
sake of auld lung syne !"
, Ho spoke quietly, but ho spoke quickly,
and before Frank had recovered from his
surprise sufficiently, to reply, Gerald was on
Ins horse. As be took the reins Frank
Htartod forward to suiza the , horse's head,

she find there an analogy to her own life,
now, like those threads, rudely torn?
And the picture? Does that bear a histo
ry, that it is always before her? Like the
handkerchief, it is her constant companion.
But 6he never looks npon it. It is there,
and she will not have it moved, but its face
is covered. It lies within her reach, yet she
never touches it. What is the secret" there?
Only one thing now served to rouse the
unhappy Ida from the dreamy languor into
which she had fallen, and in which htr life
is passing quietly away. The sight of her
father will call up a smile to her face, but
it is faint and quickly gone.
And the squire? The once jolly, hale
squire, how is he? Changed, sadly changed.
No more is he seen making his way across
the fields to the poor laborer's cottage
home, to cheer or help tho sick man. Even
the 6mile with which he seeks to greet bis
daughter comes forced and painfully.
The great blow has reached him through
her, and as day by day he 6ees her pine be
fore bim, and fade and droop, a curse rises
to his lips, good old man at heart though
he is, against the man who has destroyed
tho life of the one being he had left to love
and to love him, Only once had that name
been mentioned between them, and then
she kissed him to utiflo the harsh words
which rose upon his tongue, and stopped
them with tho mild entreaty :
"No; I love hi mstill."
Now, from the farther end of the room,
he comes towards her. She does not hear
him, and she does not look up. In tho
shadows of the room she sees a vision of
the man she loves. Her hand goes out with
the same nervous movement us if to wel
come him, but meets only the handker
chief; and, as before, her fingers trace their
way along it to its ragged edge. And now
her face is turned from the wiudow and
follows tho movements of her hand. Now
for tho first time throughout the day the va
cant eyes seem to brighten, the dreamy
look passes off and she sees the object she
is touching. She grasps it quickly as if
with some sudden feeling; then drops it, as
if the memory of that leeling pained her.
Its fall to the ground releases with a flutter
tho ragged parts and the pieces lie before
her, parted and alone.
"Liko my love," she murmurs; "like my
"No, Ida darling, not liko mc; and am I
not your love?" ,, j
She looks up and sees her futher, who
bends over her very gently, and very, very
lingeringly. Then ho seats himself beside
her, and asks again :
"Am I not your love, Ida?"
"Yes, no," she answers laintly.
But she turns away her head, and once
more that handkerchief, with its ragged
pieces lying parted on the floor, meets her
eye, and when she turns to her father again,
a tear, hot glistening, fulls upon his hand
and tells another tale.
They had come at last tlm toB.a'i,:t.

and held in her father's arms cho weeps
from her weary, broken heart,
On a bright day in May May, again, when
nature seemed bursting in her fulness and

And now, when the. chaise lias reached
ins village home, he tears the coming meet
ing :.t the farm, and dares not think it may
oc nappy mere. Jie leaves the cnaise at
the corner of a lane that leads away up to
the quiet old village church, and bids the
inver go slowly on, forgetting for the mo.
ment where it would lead hi only wish
ing for the respite of a few minutes and the
quiet of the evening - he walks on until he
stands under the grand old trees lv the
dear old church, and finds around him white
tombstones, heading o.uiet graves dotting
the green churchyard. Beneath him lies
the village, and he can make everv turn of
the roadway, tracing it along nearly to the
other corner of the churchyard. Would it
have its old red glow of firelight in the
kitchen, blazing through the windows, win
ter or summer?
Actingcpon the impulse of his thoughts,
he crossed the churchyard towards the
other side, trembling, not from the ghostly
dimness of the place, but from very eager
ness. He was weak he knew, and the ex
citement he thought would pass off. But
before he could reach the point he hjul pro-

farm, the home to which he was returning
now, he stopped as though struck. .
There before him stood the box-like stone
which marked the entrance to; the Kutland
vault. It came upon him so suddenly, and
yet he knew it so ' well, but had 'not
thought, that he staggered as thoimh he
had received a heavy blow. The memory
and the presence of the dead came before
him, and he stood spell-bound, transfix-d
by the terrible cMrm of death's monument.
I he trees waved in light, leafy canopy
over the sacret place and all around the
light and quiet air seemed to be. To him
it seemed that the statute angles guarding
the corner of the vault were indeed angles,
and shed around that grave her grave, he
thought their holy light Only when the
leaves rustled at last the spill upon him
seemed loosened, and then he staggered for
ward. "Ida, Ida!" he cried aloud, "Why did I
ever leave you .
"Gerald, Gerald! whoso fault was thut?''
said a voice close to him. '
Raising his head, separated from him on
ly by tho stone, he saw his brother.

only anguish, in Gerald's mind.
"Take me away, Frank," he said. "Thin

"No, not to die, ; Gerald. You will be
better soon und she."
"Hush, hush, for pity's sake! . Take nic

"Hark?" said Gerald, as they turned to
the gate. "II ark I, ,
Below them the sound of voices coming
up the village strcot, came borne upon the
air voices of strong, hearty men happy,
light-hearted men.! And tho chorus, near
and near as they camo below them, rang
out upon the evening air, surged up to tho
two men, so painfully parted, so strangely
united again, and sent ft thrill to the Iw.ni-a
oi each. "Auld Lang Sync I"
Frank fclt that the words forged stronger
the link in the chain of the reunion. Gerald
felt that it recalled his last words to his
brother at their parting.
"i or Auld Lang Syno !" Again tho cho
rus came out upon tho air, and Gerald
reached out his hand und cried:
"Frank, Frank, forgive mo !"
Frank led him away down a Quieter ww
than that of the villago road, and onto.
ward tho old homo, but before they reached
it the tale of wrong was told, and Gerald
sought an explanation, - -
Frank heard him out with woudi.r
scarcely knowing how to undeceive his
brother, and fearing bv a sudden khock m
add to tho thanceof his illness. Ho led
iim on, not sneakinc much, but
gradually and gently to bring before him
tho events of tho past twelve months, And

And hers came with a gasp, for the next
moment he held her in his arms. Terhap
it is as well, here to fo!ow the custoih in
such cases, and apologize for', not being
aoio to give the conversation which fol
lowed if conversation tho disjointed ht
terances could be called. Sufiico it to say
tuat to neither was the sudden surprise
"I thought you were dead," said Gerald
at length, when, having taken her into the
room, they were seated together.
"Dead!" she repeated. No, pap"
He did not let her finish; but she gave
him to understand his was only a dream in
that Australian cabin, and she blessed the
dream which sent him back to her to forgive
him, nnd once more to call him hers.
It was only after some hours had elapsed
that Frank, discreet man, reappeared. He
came then, and to tho two listeners told the
tale of the error,
Ida, too, produced a picture and a ban

The picture was of a man rescuing an
other from a mill-6trcam. In it Gerald
recognized two portraits. To secure that
picture, having "taken Frank into her
confidence, lda had periled her life's happi
ness, though unknowingly. To that the
conversation on tho river had reference.
If, in tho reader's mind there appears
little ground for jealousy in the words
spoken, let him remember this: In man's
quick naturo the greater impulse is honor.
Gerald's was a mind nobly endowed, his
nature strong, and he offered ns a sacrifice
upon the alter of Ms brotherly love the
highest affection of his soul. The ex
