And of hearts thut were tried nnd true
But of our hearts' bones and our own love
Ah, novor a word suld wo;
For futo hud forbidden our Hps such themes,
And friends we might only be.
And our furcwoll rsmo like R boding; gloom

And Joy's irlud glow, ami hope s tender bloom

For our hands wero clasped and our lips oueo

And Heaven knows lho temptations to

' In tuy earliest childhood had no

sociated with them. The first memory
I have of anything in this world Ahjck

Ho was seven years my sonior, and
was a vnulter and acrobat of no mean

I, I think there had been some closo and

When his .brow clouded becauno of my
smiles for another, I was happy, for
this wag convincing proof to my foolish
heart that ho loved mo. And I was one
of those women who are continually
eoking proofs. Iva content to take'
little on trust; I wits not satisfied with

giddy, vain young girl llko ine, , ',
I wan just twenty thou, and quite
handsome enough to win this admira
tion, and attontlon of youug Mr. Trov
Iyn. He came a groat deal to tho circus
came at times when we were not, per
forming, nnd sat with mo under tho
shade of the great trees beyond the
whlto tents of the sldo shows, and
taught me to sing sweet little songs in
which love waa tho principal theme,
and lovo shone in tho dark dangerous
eyes looking into mino. , ;
i.. I encouraged blra in this, mainly bo
causo it made Aliek bo nearly furious. 1
did not care for Trovlyn any moro thau
I did for old blind Mat, the bugler, but
ho was handsome, and agreeable, and
Aliek, I thought, was so very unreason
able, though oven' then I know iu my
heart that Aleck was right.
It went on for some time, this sense
less flirtation between tno and Trovlyn,
until evou my father saw lit to remon
strate. I wus making a fool of mysolf,
ho said, and driving Aleck to despair.
I was as good as married to Aleck, and
ho would have no moro of my childish
This roused the spirit of revolt within
me, and I flirted more than ever. ,
Aleck entirely withdrew from my so
ciety, and it was with sharpest agony
that I saw him often lingering by tho
sido of pietty Blancho Jorrold, the tight
iopo dancW. . But, of courso, he did not
know how much pain this gave me, and
I would not have had him know it for
Sometimes ho looked at me in such a
sad sorrowful way that it almost broke
my heart, and ouco ho hid his kind
hand on my head, and said:'
Lizzie dour, Heaven grant that sor
row may never come to you through the
course you nro taking!" .
And I had flung , oil' the hand with
mocking words, and daucod away, car
olling a gay little song taught ine by
Ralph Trovlyn. ... ,
Towards ?tho close of the season, we
wero to perform in Wushingtorr and it
was understood the noted men there
aud from abroad were to be presont.
All our star parts wore of courso,
brought forward and rehearsed.
The name of La Koine Gabriollo, as I
was known to the public, wits a great
deal on the mammoth posters, for I was
accounted tho best fomalo rider in the
circus, and peoplo were pleased to say
that no performance was complete with
out me. .
Mv name was a plain one, only Lizzio
Leigh, but Hotr Graflcnburg, the man
ager, insisted thnt a French name look
ed better ou the bills thau plain Lizzio
Leigh, so I was La Roino Gabrielle.
It had not boon announced what feats
Mons. Meriini was to perform, ami I
was burning up with anxiety to know,
but I would not ask. Some vague pro
science told mo that Aleck would not be
content with any ordinary exhibition of
his skill, and I was full of dread lost ho
might bo daring enough to attempt a
feat I had once, with dizzy brain and
hushed breath, seen him perform, and
which be had promised mo, for my
love's swoct sake, never again to under
take. It was a feat requiring great strength
and agility, attended with much danger.
I am glad to know that It is never
allowed in circuses now. The man
ager who sufl'orod it to bo dono, un
der any circumstances, must havo been
destitute of tho common toolings of
Lu.nia,ity-..-.u ... a series of daring
somersaults through tho trapeze, end
ing in a flying loap through the air of
many feet, and passing at the last
through an immonse hoop, covered
with blazing tar and tow, and landing
on the back of a horse which was pass?'
inr around tho ling at full gallop.
I do not know that I am able to give
rou a full understanding of the feat,
but it was by far tho most dangerous and
reckless ' performance of anything
known to our troupe.
Aleck was tho only one of them who
had over attempted it, and it was al
ways received by the public with thund
ers of applause
A day or two boforo tho issuo of the
last bills advertising the great show,
Aleck sought mo undor tho shado of a
My hoart boat tuniultuouHly at his ap
proach. I said to myself that if he were
gontlo.and loving I would bridgo the
breach between us with a smile or
two, and Trovlyn might go whither ho
But Aliek was grave and subdued.
Ho did not tako my hand; ho did not
call mo Lizzio, but La Reino Gabriollo.
How 1 hated tho namel hut I was as
haughty and resorvod as himself.
'In four days wo appear at Washing
ton, ho said slowly, "and Horr Grallen
burg desired mo to givo tho audi
ence the bonolK of my great perform

"Not the Blazing StarP" I cried with
He took a step towards mo, his eyes
soarching my face.
"Hoyoucaro, Lizzie? Will youlbld
me not to do itP" f
In a moment I was my proud vain
self again. Ho had slightod mo lately,
and ho had idlod his timo away with
that Blancho Jerrold, and ho deserv
ed to bo punished. I answorod him
"Of courso not. Why should I careP
If you choose to risk your nook in such
a mad foat, why do bo, and I walked
away with an air of haughty IuAiffur
Oucb in our own private quarters. I
cried mysolf almost sle.k, and bopgnd
my father to Indtioo Aleck lo givo it up;
butwhou ho suggested telling Aleck
that I was fiightonod for him, 1 stamp
ed my foot luigrlly, aud told my per
plexed father that if ho ever broathod n
word of my anxiety to Aleck L would
nover call him father again.
I think he spoke to Aleck about the
feat, but it had no effect, for tho. next
day tho groat yollow posters wero all

Then came the flying leap from tho
back of tho horse. I saw the hoop

to Sultan to stop in a voice hoarso
with horror. Tho well-trained animal
fell back on his haunolies, his hoofs
lifted over my very head, and somoouo
dragged mo away, with muttered im
precations of my folly.
But I broke away from him, and
rushed to tho spot whore, buriod in the
flames of tar and tow, Aleck lay mo

on the tinselry of bis clothing; they had
licked up his chestnut hair, and made!i
fiery track across his white forehead. I
flung mysolf upon him; I tore off the
blazing particles of gilt and tinsel with
my bare hands; I wrapped his bleeding
face in my hair, and smothered the fire
in my wild embrace.
I did not care who saw me kiss his
blistered lips. What was it to mo that
tho spectators wore looking on through
their gold-mounted lorgnettes? I only
knew that I had killed my love! ,
In answer to my passionato prayer,

I felt his hands grow cold; my brain
whirled, and all was darkness and des
