The Irish Bride of an Englishman.
A STORY OF THESE TIMES.
The hound stalks on before them; the
peacocks wake up and rend Ihe air with
a discordant scream. Lady Lilias, coin

it, and puts her head in the right posi
tion. A suail.slowly traveling across a
broad ivy-leaf attracts her attention;
she lifts it slowly, leaf and all. and di
rects attention to the silvery trail it lias
left behind it.
"How tender! bow touching!" she
says, with a pensive smile, raising her
luminous eyes to Ooflrey; whether it
is the snail, or the leaf, or tlio slime,
that is tender and touching, nobody
knows; and nobody dares ask. lest be

through another, trying feebly to dis

ney is on thorns. They are all listening
to what Mona is going to say next.
"Yes. A disciple, a searcher after
truth," goes on Lady Lilias. in her
Noah's Ark tone. "J'.y a student I
mean one who studies, 'and arrives at
perfection- in time."
"1 'don't (piite know," savs Mona,
slowly, "but what J'mdo Hrian princi

'Tigs!" repeats Lady Lilias, plainly
"Yes; pigs!" says Mona, sweetly.
There is a faint pause, so faint that
Lady Itodney is unable to edge in the
saving clause she would fain have ut
tered. Lady 1 ilias. recovering with
wondei i'ul spirit from so severe a blow,
comes once, more boldly to the front.
She taps her white taper lingers lightly
on the table near her, and savs, apolo
getically, the apology being meant for
"Forgive me that I showed surprise.
Vour uncle is more advanced than I had
supposed, lie is right. Whv should a
pig be esteemed less lovely than a stag?
Nature in its entirety can know no
blemish. The fault lies with us. We
are creatures of habit; we have chosen
to regard the innocent pig as a type of
ugliness for generations, and now lind
it didicult to see an) beauty in it."
"Well; there isn't rnucli, is there?"
says Mona. pleasantly.
"Xo doubt education, and a careful
study of the animal in question, might
betray much to us," says Ladv Lilias.
"We object to the uncovered hide of the,
pig, and to his small eyes; but can they
not see as well as those of the fawn, or
the delicate lap-dug we fondle on our
knees? It is unjust that one animal
should be treated with less regard than
"Milt VOU couldn't fondlM a

their roughness beautiful."
Here she gets completely out of her
depths, and stops to consider from
whence this train of thought sprung.
Ihe pig is forgotten,-indeed, to get
trom jugs to diamonds and back again
is not an easy niatter,and has to 1m
searched for again amidst the dim re
cesses of her brain, and if possible
brought to the surface.
She draws up her tall figure to its ut
most height, and gazes at the raftered
ceiling to see if inspiration can be drawn
Iroin thence. But it fails her.
"You were talking of pigs," says Mo

"Ah! so I was," says Lady Lilias, with
asigh ol relief; she is quite too intense
to tec any of the petty vexations of or

It is ten days later ten dreary, inter

light, and sunk back again into dark

perhaps, the nearest approach to divine

day the stream is swollen, is enlarged
ln'yond all recognition, and, being tilled
with pride at its own promotion, has
forgotten its little loving song, and is
rushing onward with a passionate roar
to the ocean.
A loose stone that has fallen from its
home in the mountain-side above up
rears itself in the middle of this turbu

edge, and Mona, standing irresolutely
on the brink, pauses, as though half
