All the air wm fragrant with gwppt
brier, and the pale bluatotui ghone like

Her flushing brown eyes were now dim
with uuahod tear, and Grant Bun-hard,
at a dix(ane, itudivd the rural jilcturo
tnd iruilcd. It wm rnanliko to smile,
when he knew from her listless, dreamy
ir she was thinking of tho bent; aud
ho could iave testified on oalh Unit ab

nee, that thoughts of hhu had rohbod
the lips of their steadiness, and the eves
of their flashing brilliancy; and he was
right. You would have known it by the
untpoken gladness that shone out of tho
dark, saucy face, as Grant l!urohard
came in sight, softly humming "Home,
aweet home." .
"I don't believe a word of it," sauci
ly, as he entered the bower and tied the
sweet-briar in knoU about her head and
"Don't believe what, you little athe
ist? he asked, playfully. -Don't belicvo
that yon are my prioner, and that I
may be a cruel inatter, demanding pen
ance for nil the sins you ever commit
ted?" I don't believe you mean that song,"
she answered, a little sadly. "You sing
Home, aweet home,1 and act as if you
were delighted to gut out in the broad
"Amy" (and the manly tones spoke
with a slight reproaehfulnes.f,) "you
know I love my home, and"
He paused and showered the white
blosrtoni over her head, looking into her
shy, saddened eyes.
"I may not say it," ho tidded. "Your
father thinks he is a wise man, and has
sealed my lips. Dear as is this simple
country place, I know that life ha bet
ter work than can be done here. My
energies are cramped and my powers
are sadly limited. The opportunity of

a rare one, and I may not east it awav.
It U a realization of a golden dream,
and when I return I will realize anoth

He held her pinioned with the eglant
ine fetters, but she tore thciu hurriedly
"When you return you may despise a
simple girl like me, and uy father wish
es to snare me future pain'in forbiddiii-r
all further intimacy until we know our-.
iiivi cars Reparation wm prove
os. That 4cparation lie insists must bo
entire. Ye cannot even write. Grant."
"But we can think, mid love, and
wait," was tho hopeful answer. "Yon
ier conies cousin Alice. I would say.
plaguo take her! only she looks won
arously like you. Good-bye, Amy."
And the strong man kissed her trem
bling lips and was gone.
Toor Aim ! She was only sixteen, and
not much of a philosopher. So thought
her father, as ha watched the sad face
moving about uneasily. He changed
his opinion when she knelt on the stool,
t his side and inquired:
"Pa, can I go away to school?'' .
'You go to school!" he exclaimed. "I
thought vou hated school."
"Noshe answered, gravely, "I nev
er hated it, and my teacher said I would
make a good student if I cared less for
fun. I am a real ignoramus, pa."
"Did Grant tell you so, Amy?"
"No papa," answered the blushing
girl. "lie sometimes corrected my gram
mar, but lie thinks I know more than I
do. Even now he talks of subjects I
cannot understand. He is going out to
learn and improvo continually, and if I
settle down to my old fun and indolence
he will indeed despise mo when ho re
turns. I love Grant, and I want to make
myself worthy of him. He will become
accustomed to the society of polished
women, and I will seem utterly do void
of polish. You are wealthy, pa, but I
would prefer education to money."
And Amy," said the old man, tear
fully, "when you become a lady perhaps
you will despise the awkward, old blund
ering farmer. I have heard of tuch
Oh, pa. Aunt Hustings is a true la
dy, and she honors you as your daugh
ter always must," 'said Amy, winding
hor arms around the neck of her doting
"Well, child, write to your aunt to
find you a good school in the city. She
will he a good model (or you." Amy,
child, if it were necessary, I would make
Iron a lady that vou might win Grant's
ove, even if it led ton to despise me.
Will Grant Durchard ever Ioto you bet
ter than that, tbinkyou?"
It was a question that stirred tho
depths of Amv Ludwick'i loving heart,
and kept her faithful to her filial duty.
Five years latertwo gentlemen of pol
ished manners and easy address sat talk
ing in a New York hotel. Some contro
verted point had held thorn in earnest
debate for a longtime; but at length the
elder of the two arose, saying! - .
"Grant Durchard, I liko your dovo
tion to the memory of this country girl.
It shows how true a friend you ran be.
Hut, in this ease; I believe you are pro
paring for yourself a cruel disappoint
ment." n 4 .
"Grant Burehsrd was only half listen
ing. After 6re years spent- in a foreign
land, he was still dreaming of the young
girl in the eglantine bower, and replied
"If 1 find AmyLmlwiek ft when I
left her, I will make her my bride."
"You cannot tind her as you left her,"
said his friend, earnestly. Here is

An hour Inter, they woro whizzing
rapidly toward the country, where their
attention was nrrested at a station by
tho entrance of a lady. Grand Durch
ard started! Something reminded him of
Amy Liulwick? There were brown eyes
and glossy curls, worn in the old, child
ish fashion, but now they certainly wcro
old maidish and unU'coiuing. Her face
was pretty, still, but it jacked some
thing to make it interesting, and Grant
Durchard could not but acknowledge to
himself she was overdressed and nnre
lined In appearance. He instinctively
shrank from acknow ledging to his friend
that this womnn looked like the one he
had loved. And though his cyo caught
the name of "A. Ludwk-k" on' her trav
eling hag, ho shrunk from renewing the
acquaintance, as lie might have done by
a word. He was contrasting this unin
teresting woman with the simple girl in
tho sweet-brier glen, when an old man
entered ami addressed her as "Miss

"Been down to the. city to do soino
trading," was the answer.
Her voice was coarse and harsh, nnd
Hal pit Emery fmiiled, but it was no smil
ing matter to Grant Durchard, this df
thronemcnt of the beautiful idol he had
carried all these vears.
"Getting ready, I s'pose?" queried
"Ucady for what?" asked Miss Lud
wick. with a blush and silly laugh.
"You've concluded not to wait for tho
chap that went away a few years ago, 1
hear, and that young man coiniug to
your houso every week don't mean any
thing, I s'pose. said the old man, with
an intelligent smile.
"1 don't sec it," w as the quick reply,
as she tossed her bead and simpered.
Grant Durchard groaned.
"Success to the young man who
comes every week!" said Kalph Emery,
fervently, "and vou miirhl as well sav
Amen,' Grant, for I think that last bit
of slang has cured vou."
Verily Grant Burchard was in an un
enviable frame of mind. Ho was like ono
who has reveled in a delicious dream of
beauty, and awakes to a Morn and
wretched reality. Ho was thinking it
all over, as ho lounged with his friend
tpon tho porch of tho country-hotel,
where he slopped for the night, when
bis reverio was put to flight by tho fra

heard the floating sound of woman's

ting intelligently with an elderly gentle
man. Tho conversation was of sntVi
cient length to prove that this lady with
the starry blossoms of sweet-brier tw ined
in her hair w as a woman of original
thought and raro cultivation. The old
man anked for music, ami the lady
swept the jdano keys with skillful ling
ers, and tilled the room with a rare,

away, and tho soft garments floated out,
Grant Durchard exclaimed:

Kalph Emery thought of the harsh
and discordant tones in the rail-car, and
with a smile that made his companion
wince, quoted the slang phrase: "I don't
Tho next day, Grant Durchard and
his friend stood at the gate of the Lud
wick homestead. It was a fine old
place, and the garden was a pretty sight
with its rare ami beautiful llowcrs ar
ranged with exquisite taste. Grant had
thought of his visit for yearn, when ho
should come alone to claim Amy, but
now ho was glad to bring his friend,
that no mention might be made of
claims. A lady stood in the garden
path. She turned, and there were tho
dark curls, brown eyes, and ungraceful
manner of tho traveling-companion of
the previous day. Grant Durchard step
"Good morning. Miss Ludwick."
It was sadly cold and changed from
the fervent "Amy" ho had always call
ed her in his thoughts.
'Good morning, sirs," responded that
harsh voice, while a scared look came
into the brown eyes ns ho regarded the
distinguished-looklngstrangors. A min
ute more aud sho exclaimed enthusiast
ically: Why, Grant Burchard, if it ain't
you! How glad I am!"
And sho gave him a hearty -shake, nnd
poured forth a torrent of questions as
she led him into the house, and went to
call tho family. .
The gentleman glanced nloutthe par
lor. Everything was nent aud beauti
ful, and the careful disposition of hooks
and furniture betokened a cultivated
taste. The piano was open, and two
pair of critical eyes noted with surprise

A few minutes elapsed, and tho smile

and greeted him .in. hearty timoe oi4 wol-

"Well, Grant, ito you think Amv
looks natural?" inquired Mr. Ludtviek'; '
w hen this ceremony was over.
"Miss Ludwick, vour dnnghtcrV re

Graul confusedlyi "And yet I cdiuW .
she does seetri trhangdd."
"For the better, Grant -tliF' said the
old man, glucfullv. '-She has elnttigcd
for the better. Hasn't she Grant?" . ,
"Certainly," answered Grant, blusliJ
ing fearfully, as ho put up a mental pc-'
tilion to be forgiven for lying. . -
"And she loves the old man just ns
well,'' continued Mr. Ludwick, Joyfully.
"How lucky that you did not come be
fore! She only reached home this morn- -ing,
by the early train. What made her "
run away so soon, Grant?"
"Your daughter is here," answered
the young man, pointing to the blushing
face encircled by the dark curls.
"You don't nirtun to any, Grant, yon
thought that w a Amy?"' And tho old
man burst into an uproarious shout of
laughter. "That's Alice Ludwick, .,"
Amy's cousin. Don't vou remember
how much they looked alike? Amy has
changed more than she. I warrant slm
is in tho bower. Let's surprise her."
Grant Burchard g.ivo a great sigh of -relief,
nnd the whole party went into ,
tho garden. There was the eglantine
bower,-carefully kept; and even now a .
fair woman with a dress of tho purest
white was on a step-luddor pruning the
overhanging branches, singing, mean
while, iu sweetest strains, "Ever of Thee,
I'm loudly Dreaming."
Kalph Emery listened, and exclaimed: '

Grant sutiorseded John, and with ex

Still ho moved not. She looked around
with surprise, and started nt tho tableau

Grant Burchard watched her with a
loving pride. There was nothing in her
dress, manner or conversation toojliend.
Sho was an educated and cultivated
woman. At the close of the day he laid
to his friend:
"Emery, you have lost your wager.
Was I not w ise to cling to my old love?"
"Be generous, now, and 'don't cling
nnv longer," replied Kalph Emery. "I
will try to compensate her for her loss." '
