One word, aunt Manjarrt before we

Miss Worthington swept wearily up the
splendid staircase to her luxurious mum;
and when there, something prompted her
to dismiss her maid Marie, who had been
alternately feasting, laughing, and slccpim:
since she had attired her young mistress at
nine o'clock for the ball. Sleep now pre
vailed, and her eyes were so heavy that

miss her. Will) little demur she went,
and Florence was uloiie.
Florence Worthington, seated before her
luxurious toilet-table, gave little indication
of ccstacyut the thought of her brilliant
future. She pressed her hand tightly over
liercyes as if frylnjr to shut out its bright
ness rather than to picture it In Imagina

all the sweetest, attributes of girlhood, to
thrust all hope, love, tenderness, (Voin her
heart, and force herself to believe that the
world could hold nothing- better than a life
rated with luxuries, with splendid houses,
gorgeous raiment, many carriages, and a
coronet for her sometimes aching brow.
She knew fatally well that she loathed her
future lord, and also that in her own nature
she yearned for sympathy and love it could
never be in his to yield her. Hut at least
she was heart-whole, if she was lie.'irt-soio.
That must make Iht lot more endurable.
Ah, the life she had chosen would be u
thousand times preferable, she knew, and
she would force herself to see the wisdom
of her decision !

ingthe softness of girlhood in her face fast
incited away. With restless eager lingers
she unfastened the many strings of pi ai ls
from her neck and arms, and lingered lov
ingly over the bright emerald, diamond,
and ruby stars and clasps as she unlasteiied
them one by one from her costume. To
her they were solely tempting; and as yet
she had tasted no inn er happiness.

Florence answered calmly; but she bit
What was she to do? What should she
do? she asked herself these questions, con
tinually; and they were yet unsettled
Her accomplishments, she felt, possessed
only the most ordinary merit. Impendence
of any kind, she said truly enough, vva ut
terly intolerable to her. The home she
was in now she occupied simply on sutler
unci', and must leave in a few weeks at
most. Hit lll'-t thought had been that her
aunt would oiler her a home with her for a
lime; and, with her father' only sister,
who had spent half her life in tlicir house,
sin' had felt that the obligation would mil
be too overwhelming it would soften her
dependence. Had she been a little more
submissive and tractable, a shade more
humble, she might have discovered a little
softness i;i her lad) ship's granite heart;
but it required more patient seeking for
than Finn iicc's proud nature was likely to
stoop to, so she suffered.
Lady Haven had not thought of leaving
her niece unprotected in the world; hut
she bad a .-liong idea of making her feel
her dependence until she had become quite
submissive. The time however happened
to he most inconvenient for '"'r huly-hip,
She was engaged to pay a month's v isit to
an old friend at the sea-side; and this
change, she felt, was absolutely necessary
to h'T after the fatigues of a London sea
son, and still more after all the trial" she
had just passed through. ll"r niece, .if
coiir-e, had not been included in this in.
vitatimi. Lady Haven, never too plentiful
lysuppliedwit.il money, felt but little in.
i lined tori sign her pleasant visit to Scar,
borough and sacrifice her pleasure. her
health, she told herself in order to chape
ron her intractable niece in her present
mourning ami seclusion, which at the best
could only bury them both in some dull
watering place. To do her ladyship jus.
tire, this plan had entered Iht head as a
possibility; but Mi-i Worthlngon's last
iuidcmcauor had entirely removed from
her aunt's mind the idea of making such a
sacrifice. Lady Raven's own Loudon house
in Clarges street, was let for some months,
and her ladyship was further engaged to
winter in Nice with her married daughter,
with whom Miss Worthington had never
thought tit to he on friendly terms. They
had been rival beauties for one or two Lou
don seasons, and Florence Worthington
had, perhaps wit h too insolent a triumph,
carried off the palm : so it seemed impossj.
bio that she could be her cousin's guest,
She must be safely housed somewhere, for
a time at least, until h'T mourning should
be pa sc. I through and the double, scandal
at tailed to her name forgotten. Hut
when ? To Lady Haven the question ws
the most dillicull to answer.
l'oor Florence had Indeed fallen from
her high pedestal. Tin' girl scarcely rial.
