Ruth rose wuh alacrity; resumed the Ion
net and shawl which she had thrown over
a chan, and in an ius'ant stood ready to
go. They passed out unmoles'.ed, and
for a moment stood undecided as to which
way they should turn their steps. Then,
impelled by an irresistible impulse, Ruth
turned towards the footpath, which she
well knew would lead them in sight of
Mr. Upton's house. Harry walked by
her side, silent as ever. Ruth minded
not that the deal leaves and the wither
ed grass damped her dress, nor '.hat the
wind felt more chilly and uncomfortable

too full of thoughts to hec 1 the weather.

want ol mo. Ruth, if the worst conies to sealed himself most boldly at tiei side,
the two wanderers steukhily approached
it! Harry would have paused at a suita
ble distnnce, but Ruth urged him gently
'Please Come a littlo nearer, Harry.'
Ruth was not satisfied until they had
gained a sta'.ion immediately undcrone of
the windows, a position which command
ed a view of both parlors, and which was
likewise comto.-tably shielded Irom tb-scrvation.
Harry made some faint objection at to
the impropriety of the thing, but Ruth
made no answer. Poor child! she was too
busily occupied at that moment to care
whether what she was doing was pioper
or not. Withiij there were gay music
and animated faces, and anon a silvery
burst of laughter, which flouted out to
the ears of the two lone watchers.
'What splendid dresses!' thought Ruili
'how glad I am I didn't come!'
'0, Ruth, just look what a beautiful
face! That is like some of tLe old paint
ings. There she has seaUd herself upon
that sofa opposite. Don't yoi see hei?'
And Hairy leaned forward and gazed
with a look of the most eager admiration.
Ruth drew hiiri back- She had looked
and noted well the lovely lace shaded by
the 'air hair, which was now turned with
an eagQr, animated look upon her compan
ion, Paul Upton. Paul was talking most
earnrstly with the strange lady so earn
estly that he seemed Mot to heed anything
that was passini; around him. Their
conversation seemed to grow more and
more interesting, and confidential, for
Paul's face unconsciously approached
the worst, shall we go back or 6trve?'
'Starve,' said Ruth decideilly. 'But
you will try again to-morrow, Harry, and
perhaps you will bucceed bitter. See
what 1 have got here you shall take
them to some publisher to-morrow."
And Ruth held up three or four rolls of
paper, upon which she had busied bcrsel'
the last two or three days.
Some days passed away. Ruth's man
uscripts had been offered for sale. Some
had been rejected and tome sold will,
but it was rather discouraging and morti
fying work and ' poor Harry dreaded,
more than he dare tell Ruth, to inquire
the fate of what had cost her so many
busy hours. At length, when Harry had
well nigh despaired, ho found employ
ment as errand-boy in tho oflico of a
wealthy merchant, and that evening with
elastio step and animated countenance,
told Ruth the good news. He found his
sister bending as usual over her writing,
and proceeded to recount his day's expe
rience, wnhoiit noticing the ellgrts Ruth
nvtde to suppress a fit of coughing. In
fact, ever since that evening walk to Mr.
Upton's house, Ruth hai been troubled
n rli a most obstinate anrl singular cough,
which no remedy she applied could seem
to subdue. Lately it had been quite
painful tor her to bend over her writing,
and her household duties tired her most
'Why. Ruthy, how handsomo you Sre

'Well, take it or nut, just as you please;

Ruth petulantly buiied her small feetid a
mass of dead leaves.
' Well, Ruth, had I guessed the fate of

'Well, you might as' well . spaod the

There was no answer to this, but Ruth's
a bright, arch look at her companion
which look, poor Harry, sl.irering out
side, likened lo a sunbeam.
Yes, Ruth's eye had noted well every
detail ol the scene tho exquisite and
tasteful dress of the stranger, that told of
wealth the tall, queenly form, the fair
ompleslon and rosc-imted cheek, and
above all, the interest whiuh the two oc
cupants of the Bo'a took in each in oilier

from her forehead her rich, dark hair
with a disdainful motion. She recollected
.tow that some one had onco called her

the lovely stranger within. But then
Ruth's pride came to her aid again, nnd
her dark eyes flashed unseen in her hi
Should Bho hale Paul Upton? no, he
was not worth hating; she would forget
him, and never look upon him again.
She would liys for her father and Harry,
and sometime in the future, when she was
rich nnd famous, Paul might regret her
and might reek to renew the acquaintance.
She imagined to horself the scorn with
which she would receive his d varices,
when suddenly she shivered as in an
ague-fit.- A casual glance at the window
had shosrn her Paul and the stranger lady
gafting out into the night,' and id an in-
Ruth imagined she was discovered.
But the next moment the ida seemed
absurd, for the two had passed from the
window, and wore now lost to sight.
Harry, who had now forgot everything
in his admiration of the lovely stranger,
was now awakened to lie by Ruth's
"Why, Kuth, here you are chilled
through, and dear me, how thin your
shawl is. How imprudent of us to aland
so long here. But that was such boau
tiful picture, Ruthy." And Harry lauch-
ed aod then siebdd at tho rsoollection.
. Ruth made oo answer, .only .clang tighter
to her brother's aim, as they turned Raok
into the solitary night. Away from the
bright windows, and Harry's gloomy
thoughts returned He broke out abrupt
. " Ruth, I am going to the city to seek
my .fortune, as many better men than I
have done. I shall die here, leading this
inaetive life Have you anything to say
against this plan, Ruthy?"
" Nothing," said Rutb, "excepting that
I shall go with you."
"Nonsense, Ruth! Of oourse, it will
be imposible for you to go. What would
you do when you got there ?"

over, aggravated licr cough lo such a de

she should lake a vacation of a week or
'You have been quite honored to-day,
Ruth,' was Harry's salutation, as he rush
ed like a whirlwind into Ruth's pwsenco,
after the day's work was through. 'I
don't believe there ever was a better man
than Mr. Lane. I happened to say to him
the o'.hcr day that you had a cough, and
to day he inquired after you, and said il
you had no objections, his daughter, Miss
Lane, would call upon vou. What do
you say to that, Miss Ruth?'
'To tell the tiuth,' was Ruth's answer,
'I had much rather she wouldn't come.
You know I have a great dislike to stran
gers but for your bake, I shall recieve
Harry was rather worried about Ruth's
cough, as it didn't seem to improve any
ns the weeks went on, and Ruth went a
bout so slowly, and seemed to get weary
so often, that Harry sriously began to
think it would be best to summon a phy
sician. Dut Rutli laughod at his anxiety,
reminded him that winter was a bad lime
to gel cured of a oough, and declared
that in the spring she should be aa well
There was a knock at their door one

would recover -the doctor had said so.
And poor Harry was Wild with delight,
arid worked harder and moro manfully than
over.- During Ruth's illness he had been
promoted to the position- of clerk in Mr.
Lane's store, and every even ng ho hod
the priviloge of entering Mr. Lane's
house, for there bad Ruth been removed
at the comraencenlent of her illness.
Yes, Ruth would recover, but she must
be tended with great care and truly no
sister could have watched over and nurs
ed her more carefully than had Mist, Lane
through those many woeks. And Ruth
felt very grateful, more so than she could
and then he began to talk to her just as
he used to in the old times. Kuth felt tin-
eorufortablo she wished Miss Line
would come back and take care of this
"So, you dear, silly, Mepcndent little

supid Ruth had been not to hare recol-
Icuicd that Lane was the name of Paul s
uncle. And somehow '.ho knowledge of
this fact led to another, and then Ruth
ienmed that Paul's conversation upon '.be
nivlit of lhe party had been about hcr.and
that Sophie hud been so interested, that
she had determined to make her acquain

In fact, there were o m ty explanation,
ta he made, llut when Miss L"e came
back, neither Paul nor Ruth noticed her
entrance, and so she pru lentlv made her
retreat again, smiling to herself.
And so it happened, as anybody with
commou sense miirhihavo predicted, that
not long nftcr there was another paity, at
Miss banc s instead ot Mr. Upton a, and
Harry and Ruth didn't staad euiside,but
were rather prqmirent aciors in the per
formance that look place that night a
performance in which little Ruth Morley
became Kutn Upton, and in which Har
rv and Miss Lane officiated as brides-
groom and bridesmaid.

to such an extent, that when he became
a junior partner in the house of Lane t
Co., ho persutded Sophie to repeat the
performance, which has been enacted in
the.cuse olRuth, with a very littlo vjiria
tion of course.
In process of lime, Ruth's step-mother
died, and ihcnRulh had the pleasureof ma
king her father's old age comfortable and
lisppy, Though Ruth Bnd Harry never
became very rich, or , very fameus, yet
singularly enough they were both con

Christians must also feel an icbbsa in

The laws ejet-t a silejit but rnightj inflifr
ence in forming the character of those who
live under them. The law of Lyeurgns
left their own imprecs upon lhe Spartin
mind had much to do in miking that
people what they were: The legislation
of afiy i-ou&try is an embodiment, to far
ns it g"s, of tin; public sentiment of that
country; and while it affects directly lbs
civil conduct only of men, yet io eon
trolling this, it affects also the thoughts
and feeling-of ull 'J'hb external bears
upon the inter ns). The mind i$ acted up
on by what it creates. Ia framings rule
of li e it gives beiug to th'u which imparts
direction to thought, existence to feeling,
and character lo ihe whole life. Laws,
iherefore, are something more than mete
outward regulations. They have an in
ward bearing. They act upon tbe miudj
of men. They are to men as ciiizeu
what the doctrines of the Bible are to meu
as Cinistians. They lie at the founda
tion. They affect the entire superstruc
ture. The Christian, thorcfure, ought to feel
an iriteiiBe interest in he j legislation of
his country, lie ought to exert every
energy he La's in fringing trie !af fl of tbe
laud into sympathy wjfh tfce fileyatiflrr f
men in all fho'afpeetd of their existence.'
Every arrangement in the civil condition
should be suhserv;ent to the good of lhe
inner life, Wp dp not say fliat govern-,
me nt should undertake to legislate for tho
heart, 6'r attempt to t xtt-nd its dominions
over thought and fdeling. But we dp
con 'end that it ought not to legislate
ogainst the h-ari; thai it ought not to lor
galize iniquity, or to Countenance that
which sinks men in Social, inVdlectual and
moral being. The legislation ol the earth
xhould be in harmony with man's - whole
beinif. It should hay on it tbe impress
of Christianity, snd every feature of it the
spirit of i me wisdom and exalted benev
olence. For this the Christian can sod
ought to labor. For ihia he should ex
all the rWwers of example, ol precept, and:
