STELLA'S LOVR. .
Thank you," said Stella. ''Who can
hare written to me here?" as the tore it
open and read :
"I am Jjoing to carry the life-line out to
a shipwrecked crew. I 6hall probably
never return alive, but it is their only
chance. While you are dreaming on your
pillow I shall, perhaps, be tasting the bit
terness ol death and parting. 'Verily,
death is tbU' to see you no more till the
tea gives up its dead. My darling, let me
have the happiness of repeating I love you,
I love you, Stella. Good by, sweetheart,
Tlieu she turned to tbe torn envelope ad
dressed to "Miss Stella Ames, Sea-shell
House, To be given her only in case I
never return." The revelation v?aH pre
mature. Colonel Audenrcid had returned,
' but so spent that the doctor had been sum
moned from town. Mr. Martia took his
family back to Martiuvale, but Colonel
Audenrcid remained at the seaside a fort
night longer under treatment. In the mean
time, Stellla went home home for Stella
meaning attendance on the whims of a
wealthy hypoctionuriuc, witu a small stiri
end, without relaxation. One morning the
post brought her ft letter trom ielicia,
Perhaps it contained news of Colonel Au
denreid. It did with a veugeancc.
"Dbarkst " Stella" (it beiran). -"How
odd that tbe very thing I wished shoul

that,aafter all my nonsense, it should be me

"Youra, in the seventh heaven,

the Ideal lover I fancied ho is so respect
ful, and not at all gushing, you know.
By-tbe-way, you never told me how you
came to faint that uight of the wreck."
It was no wonder that Mrs. Davis found
Stella distraught thut day, taking at ran
dom, absent-eyed, and fantastic -in her
moods. What did it nil mean? Why had
Colonel Audenrcid written hor that note if
he loved Felicia, and why was he going
to marry her if he loved somebody else?
Didn't he know that Blio had received his
message of love? Or did he mean simply
to iguore it, having seen fit to change?
From living in a state of happy excitement,
when every tootstep in the street below
might be Colonel Audenreid's, who was
hastening to repeat the burden of his note,
Stella was suddenly brought down to earth,
to the dull certainty that nothing more was
ever likely to happen to her, that there had
had been some dreadful mistake somewhere,
which had lent her days a rose-color for a
little while, to be sure, only to leave them
grayer and more forlorn than before. All
at once she remembered with a shudder
that Colonel Audenreid's fatal note was at
Martinvale, that one morning she bad been
reading it and getting it by heart in her
own room, when Felicia knocked at her
door, and she had slipped the precious uoc-

Treasury lying on the toilette table; and
then Felicia had entered wuu jus. uaws
summons for Stella to return to duty, and
in her hnstv narkinc and deuarture she had
left Slartinvale without the the Golden
Treasury. Some day she promised herself
to beg leave of Mrs. Davis, to run away to
Martinvaln. and secure her treasure, not
that its possession would signify to her any
longer.only in order to Keep n irom r eucia s
eyes; but Mrs. Davis would not bear to be
inrr lni't an hour, and sometimes Stella
cherished the insane idea of writing to
Mrs. Martin, and requesting that lady to
Bpn,l tha Oolden Treasury of Sonc. which
she would find in the gable room, without
"Dear Mrs. Dans," she begged one day,
vhon arntinle of months had cone bv. and
she had heard no more of pearls and satins
and bndemaids trom r encia, "do let me

over a train; its very important."
"A matter of life and death, I suppose?"
"It concerns the happiness of two peo-

"Yes, I will, and then you will surely let

He was very kind. He carried the liteline
out to a distressed crew when we were all
at the beach together, and he left a little

brought to me, though he did return. It
was a hasty little affair, vou know. Written.

bad misunderstood ms own lecnngs, l sup

the nntfi is in mv ftolden Treasury, which I
left behind me, and my friend Felicia
Martin may tnd it, and it win urea ner
heart, for 6he is going to marry Colonel
Audenreid. Oh ' I did not mean to tell his
name; but you will forget it, dear Mrs.
Davis, and let me go atoncei
"I am not likely to forget it child,"
laughed Mrs. Davis; "it was my own name
before I married. Colonel Audenreid is a
sort of cousin of mine. It is a pretty story.
Yes, you shall go. So the note would
break Felicia's heart, would it? It must
have been very tender."
"But you see there must have been some
mistake about it."
',Well, there are as good fish in the sea
as ever yet were caught, child. Go and
look after Felicia's happiness, if you will."
And for the first time Mrs. Davis kissed
Stella's white cheek. "You might have
been my cousin, you know," she explained.
But Stella never reached Martinvalle.
Stepping into the station, she ran against
Colonel Audsnreid stepping out, with her
Golden Treasury in his hand. They looked
at each other for a breathing space.
"I was going to you," said the colonel.
"Where is Felicia?" demanded Stella.
"At home and harpy still. Where
were you going?"

driven in the opposite direction from
"home." "1 had lelt the note to he given

The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an-
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
