; Miss Wildrose was very young wlicrt
tlomftdo her earliest literary venture.
It wm in k long wm, of such a seopo
knd nature, that at first no one iriw Ois
jwsed to believe it could bo the work of
a girl not yet twenty. Butelie bad rondo
ho affectation of disguising herself un
der silence or with a pseudonym, and
1 the rector of the parish had heard nor
lioni of "Tho Son? of the Morning
Slaw", before its completion; and when
this was known, and the first poem was
followed bv another and yet another
kindred to it. the doubters were silenced,
and Mias.Wildrose took her place among
the poets on tho bourn wim juiuon
thought her family find friends; on tho
humble.et footstool of all Miss WiMroso
herself thought. Sho was content to ho
the lowest there; only to be in the glori
ous company at all was was quite enough
' for her. ..
Of course tho 'Work was criticised.
Thw gtvaUrjtic counted the number of
, Saxon derivatives on n page, and honor
ed or dishonored her according to his
sum total, and that ono weighed her
rhymes in the hair balance under glass
that is sensitive to the souud of the fall
ing snow-flake, and the other found a
real marc's jiest of delight in a Jamo
foot of the blank verse. Hut the people
, liked the little books, and tho popular
acknowledgment was such that Miss
Wildrose's head might have been turned
Jkikafixt had been less a matter of nio
Went with her. or if iust at that time she
had pot met Kaphael Stuart and loved.
bini almost on the meeting.
Sho had always lived in tho village.
He came to her liko a being not only of
the outside world, but of tho world of
art In which her dreams and fancies
lay. Fof be was a painter of more than
common promise if not yet of absolute
performance, and if poor as the tradi
tional painter is, yet with too much love
of the colors and harmonies and shapes
of nature that belong to all who can see
them to sigh for those heavier luxuries
that belong only to the few. Iu timo ho
would like them too, but jurt now ho
had vouth. art and love. .. What more
could he wish?
Like most young artists, Europe was
his goal. If ever he could sell enough
sketches to warrant his departure. And
now, since coming to tho village, he had
doubled the distance between him ana
this goal: for how was he going without
MWWildrose? and in order to .take a
wife with him he would have to make
twice as many sales as he had counted
on before. Miss Wildrose's littlo in
come from her books would not go a
great way in their mutual purse, fortho
nale of the best liked verses is not a mir
aculous draught, and sho had really
worn out various copies of her books in
the service of borrower not buyers.
iloreovcr, as Mrs. Stuart, she could hard
ly make herway with the sameexpensc
jess simulio'ty as when only Miss Wild
rose. Plainly old age was likely in
creep npon them lotb before they could
venture to let their lives become ono
and make their vision of those old street J
and galleries, those summer seas and
glacier tops, a thing of real life.
This, however, did not seem so sad a
' thing to Miss WiMroso as it did to Ra
phael. She could goon singing hersongs
in the little village as long as her heart
and soul were in sympathy with tho
great strain ihnt nature sings, and here
was Raphael all day nnd even- day be
fide her. Hut it troubled her at length
a little to see his unrest. Perhaps she
caught tho unrest herself. Her work
felt the trouble; and for a time Hhe fear
ed she had lost the secret word of her
power; she began to bo as eager as he
lor the impossible'.
"I want my outlook openod, he cried,
searching the blue sky with his bluer
eps. "Twnnt to sec for myself how
Raphael turned this line, how' Veronese
blended those tints, how Rembrandt
flung that shadow. I want to know
what they mean by saving Turner made
color do the work of 'drawing. 1 want
to see the great masters of to-day in
their studios or alield. I want to see
Venice before somo accursed steamlMiat
rips np her looking-glasses."
'I want to see the Kugancan hills," said
Miss , Wild rose, casting herglanee dream
ily along the flat country where never a
lull was seen.
"And I want my home, my wife, my
hearth," he said, and then for a lit t lo
time tho lovers' happiness seemed only
a high value of their art.
'If Voti could onlv be sent tiiKuroiM',"
said sfie at last. "If you could be con
sul in some foreign town in Franco or
Italv, or in the East, or in tho" north of
'If I could go abroad and be paid
for it," he said laughing. "Ah, yes,
if I could have the moon for my lan
tern!" 'But it is not impossible," she ans
wered with a brii'litctiltiff smile. "'Now
I consider it not at all impossible. I re
ally think it may bo compassed. Oh,
Raphael, if it only should!"
'I am afrnid you are building castles
and the scaffolding is iu the. clouds," he
"Listen then. Isn't the new Secretary
bf State a man of letters? lland-iii-glovo
with .publishers and authors? A patron
' ' of paintvrs too?"
. "A regular Maecenas! My darling,
vour wit are as wight as your eyes,
Take me for a clod! 1 sco it all now you
have illuminated it. Yes, yes, a good,
case ought to be made out between my

And it was not a month before armed
with all Biifllcicnt papers as ho deemed,
Raphael Stuart . was wnifing in the
Secretary's anti-room so conlident 'of
"aifcccssthat he was already canvassing
, in hid ownjujuujJi jucriw of tho op

ami tasked him for his oilier papers.
"They aro very strong," he said, und
it is very unfortunate. I have all but
promised tho consulship to Mr. Tiemay,
who has just left hie Perhaps you saw
hint pass L out: hi! ilooks liko an Italian
brigand anJ"mer6scTriis ''soiuetTiTiig' fit

for the post," said the Secretary laugh
ing,, for lie knew how to fill disagrceaulo
Causes with light words. "Well, tvoll,"
e sld, "I shall regret it very much if I
ranr)ot be of pervico to you. ' Dejicnd
upon it I shall try. I am sorry to
have so far committed mysolf., Perhaps
something can bo done although lam
doubtful. Aro you in the city long?
Whore are you slaying? Can yon dine
wth rne to-night? 'My wife nnd daugh
ters will be pleased. A few pleasant
people. Sharp seven. (Jood-morning."
And before Kaphacl recovered himself
the plausible Secretary had bowed him
out and admitted the next, nnd he was
standing with a dazed air among the
ruins of his hopes, the faeo of the Italian
brigand, whom he now remembered to
have seen, dominating the ruins liko
that of an evil genius.
Rut ho was no; of the sort easily cast
down. After a couple of hours ho was
on his feet again, full of pluck nnd pur
pose, investigating the art of the Capi
tol, and a few minutes before seven he
was at the Secretary's door, admitted by
the stately black porter, making his best
bow to Mrs. Secretary, anil if not con
scious that Miss Secretary was regard
ing him with an nusmcious eye, quite
conscious that she looked like one of tho
sweetest and best-naturcd young women
in the world and one to whom, before
the dinner was announced to which he
led her out. he felt like confiding both"
his joys anil sorrows. '
What troubled him was that before he
had been live minutes iu the drawing
room he had seen the Italian brigand
talking with a famous general and look
ing as though hn were taking his pointo
so as to be ready for the next ambush,
and that now ho'was placed on the oth
er side of tho table but a few scaU dis
tant. ' ; ....
The dinner went on quite as usual,
when suddenly there was a lull in tho
conversation, which had been turned by
tho Secretary to tho subject of modem
literature, and Mr. Tiornay's voice was
beard quite distinctly saying to the Sec
retary as ho bent slightly forward, "Oh,
I assure you, mv dear sir, there is no
one bettor qualified than I to speak of
The Song of the Morning Stars,' since
I wrote it, as I may sav. And then as
Raphael tossed back his hair liko ono
preparing to offer battle, he added:
"That is to sav, Miss Wildrose and I
wrote it together, ami rewrote it. I
think there-is not a single stanza in which
our joint work is not to be found. Tho
idea of the opening chorus is her own,
and the work mine. 1 myself suggested
tlm refrain of the Wandering Stars, and
she worked that up"
"And the Cloud of Comets?" asked
tho Secretary. ,
"Oil? that'is mine, too: and so was the
Earth's recitative in tho Region of Mete
ors, all mine. But her delicate touches
gavo it a grace not within the power of
a masculine pen. Miss Wildrose's grace"
"I beg pardon. Are you speaking of
Miss v iltlrose?" saul the Secretary s
daughter, as Raphael sat aghast and ut
terly incapable of using her name in this
i "Of Miss Wildrose?" saul Mr. Tiernay.
"And do you really know her?"
"Liko a sister," said the Brigand.
"Better than a sister, I might add, since
wo have worked for our naiuc and pur
Hon- I kIioiiM likn to seo her! l)n von

Ah, it is unlikely. Tho poet is too
sensitive for contact with, practical
things, you know."
Then you must tell ino of her. Is she
pretty? Is she pleasing?
Tieasing. yes. li can nanuv snenK
of her so openly, you must believe me.
She is perhaps one i Idea ol sappno
"lcs. Large.-' . . '
"Then 1 hope her hair is black."
"As black as night,"
"Even' one has such a different idea
of Sappho." said Miss Secretary. "Now
to me Sappho looks like Story's C'lcopa
tra. Anil lv the way, p
mna. i you
know that Mr. Could' a 'Ghost of Ham
let's I'ntjier' 1h to be seen in Boston? I
could take tho journey there to sco it!
He is tho Nieiiey or sculptors." Ana
then the Secretary took up tho talo, and
his daughter bent her head over her 1 it
satin inmu and whispered tollapliael, "I
thought you saul you were eng:gel to
marrv Miss . Wildrose?"
So I did."
"Whv then didn't you announce your
self just now?"
"Drag her name bcioro a uinncr ta
ble?" "I believe In you!" she said earnestly.
"Have voir her picture? Pray let me see
She looked at it and passed it to her
nfixt neighbor. ' "It looks more like a
New England maiden than like aqueon's
(laughter," she snlu us she tint so.
"Oh, is this tho new princess?" cried
the lndvinto whose hands it came direct
ly afterward, and it presently reached
tho Secretary. It was a miniature that
Uimhncl himself had painted,

or not. ,

cried tho young lady iu the same, clear
treble,, as her mother, to avoid the fla3C0
sho saw coining, rose from tho table.
