of it that he had chosen to make the brief
announcement that has just been recorded.
That was all he thought needful to say
that ho had agreed to take a lodger, and
that ho might bo looked for before night

managed to make his living. He and his
daughter were not popular among tbeit
neighbors. When Ids wife had died, soon
after his settlement there, and left this little
girl toddling about, the women folk of the
vicinity had made kindly oilers of help tc
the lonely man in rearing his little one:
but he was gruff and ungracious, and the
child seemed even then to partake of his
unsociable nature. So the luke-wurm, me

had naturally awakened died away, and

does life's sweetness lie save in giving and
receiving gifts? Khe was indeed of that
better stuff that finds its dearest joy in
spending and being Bpent, rather than in
accepting and adding together sums ol
love. But no one had ever made her love

was unconsciously fastidious and sensitive,
as I have said before, and this protected
her from the superficial likings she might
have otherwise have felt for the rosy-fiiccd
girls who met her on the roadside with a
pleasant greeting, or the stout young fel lows
who once or twice had tried, from sheer
manliness, seeing her carrying a heavy

Like a good many of her moro favored
Bisters, her heart was guarded by an out
work no mean one of fancy and fuslid
lousuess, a slight but impcnctratublc veil
between her and the coarse rustics about
her. She looked sullen and downcast on
this bright summer morning as she turned
slowly to tho work of clearing away the
breakfast things. A lodger that meant
more work and harder, and, worse than
that, it meant a stranger who would think
himself better than her, better than her
father; who would make her feci as she
had felt once, when she had been strolling
on the shore, whither she loved to go when
the day's work was done, for slio had a gen
ulne though unconscious love of nature,
and a party of fine ladies and gentlemen
came ashore from a littla tug-boat, a yneht
her father called it, anchored off tho cliff.
Slio had watched them, quite near too so
near that the sound of their voices and
laughter reached her and once or twice
she beard their words plainly.
They were so different from tho country
people she lived among looked and moved
and spoke differently. They had not no
ticed her; she looked like the rest of the
people they had seen that day, poor und
plain, and she had no beauty or trace to
shine through her ugly clothes and" lift her
above the need of stylo or ornament. And
yet she had felt that duy, for the first time
In her life, clearly, that she was not really
different from thoso young girls ; that she
could have learned to speak and move aa
they did. As she listened to their voiecf
she heard one of them say, looking up at
the little cottage, "I suppose some one lives
there who has always lived there and always
will. It would be like being buried alive
to me." And then the gentleman to whom
it was said had answered, " Oh yes, of
course, to you; but, my dear Miss Wlllougl
by. the people who live there are not lik
you;" That was all she had heard, but it
had made her bitter then, and now when,
she remembered it her heart hardened
against this stranger, who wus one of their
kind and would leel as that man hifl done.
Well, she must go to work, and so she did
Boon, and there was enough to do to take
her all day. Tho sun was sinking iu thvj
nest, and she had not yet carried up the
pail of water that would put the lost touch
to tho loiker's room. There w as a com-
mon pitcher and bnsin in the room, and
she had filled the pitcher, and then some
notion came to her that he would want
more water than one pitcher full. " These
line folks are so particular," she said to
herself, and ran dow n with the pail to the
pump again, bhe soon pumped it lull, and
stooped' to lift it; as she did so, her hair,
which had loosened during the day's work
and was now held up but by a single pin,

mass of golden-brown ripple and curl.
was her only beauty, and she did not even
know that it was beautiful. Hho Uttered
an impatient exclamation, tried to toss it
back oil her face as she held the bucket in
both hands, and then was constrained to sot
the pail downngain while she gathered her
unruly tresscfhurriedly together and bound
them, with a sigh of real weariness. the
stooped ngfiin, it was a heavy lift, and sho
hod worked hard all day, As site did so a
shadow fell across the path and a voice be-
side her said, " Let me carry that in lor you ;
It s heavy and you are tireu." bho started
ana grew a deep red when Bite saw who it
was that had spoken beyond doubt the
lodger, a young man of eight ami twenty,
self-possessed, handsome, and with a sweet,
I ler answer came at once, "It's not heavy,
thank you, and I'm used to it," ungracious
and brusque; then she lifted the pail with
a steady bund, and carried it quickly into
the house and up si airs. All the fatigue
seemed gone; she was strung upntonee.

" I will show you your room," she said,
in her usual cold, dry way. lie followed
her, and was shown his room. When lie
came down, a liltlo while after, ho found
Jake Anderson smoking a pipe on the door
step, the table set for tea wlihln, and Inn
few moments more was bidden by Antler
son "lo sit down and have his supper.
There was no use wailing for the girl ; she'd
gone to tho shore with Bill Foster, to sec
him oil' on a trip."
. Middleton obeyed orders, inferring from
Anderson's tone that it was a good by fM
a tcto with a lover, und said us much In a
pleasant way to the man, as they nit to
gether over the table.
Ho was answered by a grim smile, and
""Well, I don't know about love or lovers.
The girl hasn't heard much about that soil
of thing, nor won't. Bill wants to many
her, and she'll havo him, In course. What's

"Queer people," thought Middlelon.
"The father thinks it quite natural lo cross
the word ' love' out of his daughter's voca
bulary, and tho daughter treats a common
courtesy as if it were an uncommon imper
tinence. Well, I didn't come here to study
human nature, but the ocean." And with
this soothing reflection he went placidly to
bed, and was soon asleep. Would he havo
laughed or wondered most had ho heard
wliut Iho girl was saying to her companion
as they passed up and down the sand, iu
the moonlight? What ailed her to-night?
Bill thought, us he looked at her, "that she

os he gave her u strong, warm hug, and
said "Good-by," be had tho real sense of
absoluto ownership of her, which is the
Bweelestand dourest sensation it man of his
type ever feels in his relation to a woman.
Arthur Middleton bad come down to this
out-of-the-wuy place for two things; to
sketch from nature, and to kill time during
a period of probation which lay before
him. It was only two months now, but it
looked long, and the young-man's mood
made society distateful to him. lie wanted
to dream, which is always better done alone,
and so he had determined on this trip. lie
hud never hud but one strong feeling in his
life, und that was his love for his cousin
Helen Featherstone. It hud grown up witli
him, and seemed to be rooted deep in ids
lieart. lie was not n man of much strength
of will or decision of purpose, but he had
always since his boyhood known his own
iiiiml about this one thing, and had per
sisted in bis devotion to bis cousin willi a
force and consistency that did not seem
part of his character, bho was intellectu
ally ills superior, and, being .a woman of
remarkable energy and will, was stronger
than lie wus, except on this one point, blie
could have made him change Ids mind
about anything but this; and so, after sev
oral years of determined, persistent wailing
on bis part, ho had so far succeeded as to
gain a promise from her to consider the
matter that Summer. Bhe was to spend
three months in Kurope, and they hud
agreed that should she have decided in his
fiivor he should know it by a line written
before tho arrival of the steamer and mailed
to him at once when she reached the dock.
Ono month hud gone already, and after
having struggled through it between Para
toga und Newport, Middleton bad decided
that he would face the two that remained
alone with his thoughts and his pencil,
lie was a clever sketeher, umateur to Die
core. No genuine artist drop in his blond,
but fond of nature, especially of the ocean,
and always capable of amusing himself
with a sketch-book. '
A gentleman every inch of him. Ho was
also one of those people who, if they hud
lived under the hot-house process of tho
middle aires, would have turned out propa.
gundistsuiid inquisitors; a little Inter phil
anthropists, abolitionists, and prison re
formers. Living as be did at the present
day, ho was just a little apt to try to model
anil mould and influence any one willi
whom ho was thrown in contact for a time.
He could do anything lor any one except
let him alone. It was one ol the standing
grievances of ins cousin Helen, who cared
lor nothing in lilo so much as not lieing
interfered with. "You were meant for a
schoolmaster, Arthur," she would say, " or
a nursery gardener, and then you could
train and shape and turn to your heart's
content." He could be unselfish and gen
erous without an effort, but he could nol
resist his Impulse to meddle in other peo.
pie's lives; and it must be admitted he did
it well. Most people were really influenced
by him, and for their good, l'lc taught a
great many people to like what they had
disliked, and to do what they would have
left undone, It was only a wilful, way

vanity after nil was not of tho ordinary

And yet sho felt a wayward, sudden lm.
pulse to dash them on the floor. Bho uc
oompllslied her lank and went down Htulrs.
Arthur hud settled dimwit' to sketch just
outside tho door, under a sollinrv tftti til A
only out iu the. Immediate neighborhood.
Bhe looked at him as ho sat there, his fair
hair shining in tho sunlight, his delicate
aristocratic profile bent over his work,
everything about him eloquent of culture
and refinement, aud she felt a sickened
sense of longing and pain come over her.
As he raised his head and saw her averted
look, her attitude expressive only of sulleu
indlllereuce, nothing of tho truth eamo to
him ; only was roused in him the desire of
success and the impulse to combat that Is
always born of opposition and a sense ol
antagonism. Arthur's vanity, which played
no mean part in his life, did he but know
it, awakened to the contest.
1 1 wish you would look at this," he said,
rising and coming toward her; " I've been
working at it for an hour, trying to elabor
ate the first sketch which I took yesterday
on the shore below. It was like it then. I
dou't know whether you know tho spot,
just where the turn comes in tho shore and
tho cliff rises abruptly." .
"Know it?" At least she know tlfc
oceau, but why did lie ask her? To mock
her? Did he not know that she hud never
seen a sketch before? It was like a mira
cle to her. Sho had heard of such things
us drawings, but sho hud never seen, any
one before with a pencil in his hand.
"Yes, I know the place, but I don'f
know anything about pictures."
"Then you're just tho critic for such A
sketch. Is it like, Miss Anderson, frankly
now?" His laughing blue eyes looked
Into hers as much us to say, " Come now, a
civil answer I will have."
bhe hardened herself. " I will not amil f
him," sho thought, and straightway"!
don't think this looks liko tho cove; the
rocks are not the right color."
"What's wrong with the color?" said h?
snlinly, quite unannoyed. "Too gray!
Yes, that is just it; I could not make it
out. It is red or purple that will make it
right?" lie paused and waited.
''Purple, I think," she said, interested in
ipite of herself.
He mixed a little color on his palette and
rescuted himself to make the suggested alter
ation. Five minutes went by, and he lifted
his head for the first time and turned to
see the cll'ect " How will that do?" was
trembling on his lips., bho was not there,
bhe had gobe buck into tho house as he had
beguu to work, and he now caught a glimpse
of her slight figure Hitting about within.
Ho was really annoyed for a moiwent He
hud worked, feeling as if her eyes were
watching every touch of his brush, aud
stimulated by this imagined consciousness.
It was too bad ! But in a moment more he
reflected that nothing liko courtesy could
be reasonably expected from her, and smil
ing to himself he sat down again before bis
sketch, weaving plana of conquest tho
In this way moro than a week went by,
ho losing no opportunity of making bis
points, aud meeting with constant rebuffs
and ungraciousness. But beneath tho Bur
face sho was melting last Little did
Arthur Middleton dream what a spell his
mere presence wrought upon this poor girl.
Ho was like a young divinity in her eyes,
bho might in her heart hesitate to acknowl
edge him as such, but only for a moment;
in a nature like hers there Is but a step Wv.

bhe refused these, and turned away after a
careless glance from those. Still ho went

ject. Her defences were soon undermined,
and at last nothing remained but the
merest crust of opposition. Still that crust
was impenetrable,' and Arthur began to de
spair of ever taming this- savage, when a
fortunate trifle did the work that bis most
ingenious efforts had hitherto failed to ac
coniplish. Ono morning soon after his ar
rival ho had been standing at the door
sntiHiug the morning air, and, seeing her
within a few steps of him, lie said, "It
seems absurd, but do you know, I can smell
orange blossoms In the air." It was part
of ids system always to address her as his
equal, and with a sort of assumption that
she would sympathize with and understand
w hatever ho might Buy. This sho iuvaria
bly met with a blank want of comprehen.
slon, which did not daunt him, however.
Bo fct this occasion she had said abruptly:
"I never smelt an orange blossom."
"What I but it is not strange, because
you havo never been where they can be
had, I suppose. Well, they havo u whole
South in thuir fragrance."
" I am not used to perfumes. I don't be
licvo I should liko them."
" Possibly not, but I think you would ; "
und then the conversation had been broken
off by Juke's announcing that tho boat was
ready for Mr. Middleton.
About a week after, a tiny box came
among Mr. Mlddlcton's packages from the
village. He smiled to himself and took it
upstairs with his loiters. An hour after
ward, when tho sun was setting, became
down stairs and looked about for Meg;
sho was silting on a low stool, with some
courso sewing in her lap, by a window
opening toward the west; her beautiful
hair was alive with tho light which Hooded
it from the dying sun, and she made a pic
turesque if not a pretty picture, a ho stood
and looked ut her. She had not heard his
step, and started as ho came forward and
luid something in iter lap.
"I have brought you an odor from the
South," ho Biild; "tell mo now what you
think of orango blossoms."
Shu opened the little paper box, and tho
wonderlul scent, heavy with sweetness, ruc
up and tilled her with a sense of (lellghl.
All tho faint, delicato suspicions of Via
'gruiico which were all that tho few wild
liowers sho had ever gathered could loll her
of that supremo dower of flowers' odor,
seemed cold and poor and cniDty compared
with tho intoxicating delight which eman
ated from these thick creamy petals.
"Did you gt them" for inn?" she said,
flushed witli pleasure, her reserve swept
" Ves, I wrote for them ; it was only con.

"Thank you, you are very kind;" and
then she put them up to her race ugaln and
drunk In Ion -4 draughts ot their sweetness.
