my niothor called me to her side.
I thought as I sat down at her feet, how
beautiful she had been in years past, how
beautiful tho still was, with her great, sor
rowful black eyes. , She looked steadfastly
at me for a moment and then she said half
"My child have 'you promised to be
Morgan Philips' wife!"
"No mamma, I am young yet."
. . "Yes, very young; but if you.' havo not
promised, you have let him see for these
many months that you loved him that his
presence at your side was welcome. Now,
Hanne, if you did not mean to wed him,
was this right?" . v , , .
I blushed, and was silent.WtL she con
tinueu: "I know, that Hunt Hcnnesly loves you,
alto, and I will not counsel you. Your
own heart will be your safest guard, if you
will only follow it; only Harjuo Stuart, my
child, do not let ambition, power, luxury,
any tiling tempt you to marry without love.
The- ritribution will be terrible, terrible,"
and my mother drew her shawl about her
and Khuddored; albeit tho room was warm.
Her voice was husky whon she said:i ,
"I will toll you my poor girl, a story of
my own youth. I had not thought to oon
fess your father's faults or mino, and God
knows which wero heaviest, but you need
the lesson, and you shall have it. . I was
motherless. I havo seen a picture of the

but she passed from earth" ere sho had

"I was very beautiful, the world said.and
I knew it ' well. The faco that met my
gaze as I stood before my 'mirror, was
brightly, bewilderingly lovely. I had boon
educated in conventual retirement, and
my heart waR fresh and pure.1 I loved!
Hanne, you havo never known such a pas
sion. It was worehip-it was idolatry it
was the life of my life. And he I loved
was poor, Allan Ureame, was latherless
like mysolf,but I was an inmate of his moth
er's cottarre. Very tenderly they cherished
tho orphan committed to their care, I knew
that Allan loved nie. I rcadjt in every ant;
in the appealing tenderness with which his
blue eyes would roit upon rriy face, in the
care with which ho anticipated my, wishes,
and in tho very intonations ot lus voice as

had never asked mo my love.andi had nev
er promisecHjsmany wbrds to be his
bride, but tor many months ho had believed
me" all his own and yet, when your father
visited the cottago, his eyes sought my
tace, with a kind ot questioning sadness.
Time passed on, and seven weeks more bo-
held mo Percy Stuart s betrothed, liook1
in 'j back, I cannot see by what circum
stances this change was brought about. I
wort hipod Allan Greame as madly as over.
His smilo was the sunshine of mv exist-
onco. 1 our lather - lovod me, at lesst he
idolized my beauty, and he was a noble,
glorious man. Slill his presence had no
power to awaken a sinirlo heart thrill. But
he was rich ani nobly born. - 1 coveted
tho proud rank his love could give the
stately mansion and the old name. It was
a Ions strufffflo between love and ambition,
but at length I laid my hand in his. Scorn
me, hate mo Hanne,! desorve it. v I sinned
wilfully. I knew I did . not love him
that heart and soul wore long ago yielded
up in a passionate adoration to another
and yet L became hrs bride.
Allan nevor reproached me, but the
stony hopeless sorrpw in his bluo eyes was
moro bitter than tho most terrible words.
His mother was as kind as ever. But I
could see the hot tears fall upon the bridal
garmonts she was making. And I, oh
Hanne. shuddered, lookinp; back throup-h
all these years, at tho baro thought of my
silent agony. X believe . that 1 was more
beautiful than ever. My eyes were wildly
bvitrht and my cheek flushed like wine an
hundred years old, mantling over a silver
goblet. My bridegroom liked the impassive
coldness of my manners. I do ' not think
that hoover dreamed that I did not love
him, and my statclinessaccorded well with
tho.lofty pride of hini3ellandall Ins haugh
ty race. . , : -
J married him... Tho ceremony was
over.: And no turned 10 kiss ins wue ior
tho first tinio, when a shriek ran through
the church, a piercing,- terrible shriek
Then there was a heavy fall. . Allan was
borne senseless through the crowd. ' My
husband might have suspected when ho
saw mv ansuish, that he Was niorothan
tho brother I called him, but he said 110th
ing lie even acoedod to my wild prayer
that our bridal journey might be postpon
od until he was better, and permitted me
to bo a constant watcher at his" bedside.-
Ha had not long to wait. . My boloved had
broken a blood vessel in his fall, and the
fourth day he died. I held his hand as he
fadod silently away,
Katrine,' he said, looking mournfully
into my eyes, 'Katrine, it is very sweet to
die thus, with you beside me. 1 am dying
for vour lovo. I shall bo happy, doarest,
for angel whispers you win oe mine in
Heaven. You havo never said you loved
mo, but I know it. I know that I am . dy
in, love is more to you than all this bright
limner world, and I am iroinrr where no
shadow falls. Kiss mo Katrine, and then
sine me one of our dear old songs.'.
' T wi Iriasfid him manv times before as a
Riatnr- mitrrir- tha free . innocent kisses of
childhood, but now, now, I kissed him
with the wild passionate kissos of womnh
hood'a doathloss love; and then ' drawing
his head to my bosom, , I sang. It was
a ballad wJ had sung many times together,
when the stars wero clirabinsr up into the
auiotskv. and I sang it now, to the soul
which was eo soon to climb " .above tho
stars, above tho sky, even to the tootstool
of the great white throne. , He looked at
me with; floods of light swelling into his
laro-a blue eves.'. ' Every moment he grew
moro and more beautiful, till I was fright-
ened at its unutterable glory. I ceased,
and his low" voice whispered 'Katrine
, 'The lids closed over those earnest eyes,
peacefully as a child lies down to dreams,
and tho golden head grew cold upon my
bosom. I was alone with my dead!'
. 'My mother ' paused,, and clasped roe
wildly to her heart, then releasing me,
she continued: ;
'Hanne, f know in those early dajrsyour
father loved mo, as A could luvt. Not with
the worship of the dead, but be was proud
of mo, and strove to make mo happy. He
sufTored much.- Tho -wife- whose head

years, Hanne, boforo you was born. . Ho
had learned of late, to soek his happiness

inquire the nature of his pursuits, for I
was grateful to bo left alone. When you
were put into my arms, I rainod tears of
blossiug over you, thanking God tkat my
heart could love still. '
'As I lay in silence with my eyes shut,
oldir.g you on my heart, I heard him
say: . . .. . - - ' - '
Perhaps tins child will win her love to
me. Ood errant: we may be happier!
It was a vain hopo, Hanne, I was cold
er to him than ever. Wo both lovod you.
I ' would hold you in my- arms hour

who should havo been your fathor. One
night asl held you thus, ray husband en

I knew his reproaches Wore just, and I
sat still, inofiant silence, holding you to
my heart. Pot five minutes ha . stood si
lently looking on us, Then he spokcagain,
with soltened tone:

on tho floor, weak, helpless, in a posiiion
of sobbing. Icanromember nothing dis

ory of a kiss of fire upon my forehead of

I clasped her bowed figure in my arms,
and pressed my lips again and again to her
flushed brow shuddering the,wnue ai 1110
thought that terrible as had been niine'but
for the story and its warning. Oh, how
much dearer mv heart acknowledged her
in the utter hopelessness of her fearful sor
row, than she had ever been.in what I had
supposed, tho cold perfectness of charac
ter. . ...
There was a quick ring at the door. My
mother gathered about her the heavy folds
of her shawl, and, turning on me the ap
pealing glauce of her tearful eyes, passed
from the room, even as Hunt liennesly en
tered. He knelt at my feet; whispered
pleadingly of tho future his care should
make so bright.and involuntarily I shudder
ed, as I drew my hand from his clasp, . ,
'Mr. Hcnnesly, I said in a low, earnest
tone. 'I have heard that to-night which has
made tho distinctions of this world seem of
little moment in contrast with a calm, truo
love, which shall last ; for eternity. I do
not so love you. ' I cannot be your wife!' "

went out silently into the storm, : -I never

There wash'tmuch pride left in my heart
then, and I bowed my head upon his shoul

ears of love could catch the sound: '. , ...i.

California paper by the last stamur give
an account of the ascent of one of the Or
egon Peaks, known as Mount II00J, which
has been ascertained by measurement to
be 18,361 feet. This i the highest peak
on tho American continent, and one of the
highest in tho world. : The mountain was
ascertained to be volcanic, smoke being
seen to issue from the summit. The peak
of Mount Hood is thus described:
"We found thetop similar to that of Mt.
Helens extremely ' narrow, laying in a
crescent shape. Mount St. Helen's facing
the northwest by a crescent, while Mount
Hood faces the south-west. The sharp
ridge on top runs from the southwest to the
north, making a sharp turn to the west at
the north end. The main ridgo is formed
of decomposed volcanic "substances, of a
light reddish eollor, with cones from 20
to HO feet high at intervals of a few rods..
"These cones or rocks are full of cracks
or fissures, as if they had - been rent by
some convulsion of nature eta remote peri
od. Between these cones there are numer
ous holes, varying from the size of a . com
mon water bucket down to two or three
inches in diemetor. . Through these Jw
ing holes as we 'shall call them and
through the crevices in the rocks there is
constantly escaping hot smoke or gas of a
strong sulphuric odor. In passing 'over
the ridge for near half a mile wo discover
ed a largo number of these breathing holes;
through some the heat , was, more iutenso
than in others. '.
"We did not carry up a thermometer;
therefore, wc could not got the exact de
gree of the hent; but from holding our
hand over several of them, we have nodoubt
that the thermometer would have shown
boiliug heat, in some of them."

dker. Tho reindeer is possessed of con
siderable speed and endurance but what he
is capable of performing in harness seems
not to be accurately known. Travelers,
of lr.te years, have, with a singlo deer, ac
complished a distance of one hundred and
fifty miles in less than nineteen hours; that
is, at the rate of eight mijes an hour. But
this was over a difficult lino of countiy,
and the difference therefore, is, that under
more favorable circumstances the animal
could have got over much more ground in
that time. It is on record, indeed, and
there may be a good deal of truth in the
story, for a portrait of the reindeer, togeth
er with that of the driver, is still preserved
in the palace of Drottingbolm, that on tho
occasion of a sudden eruption of tho ene

by tho fact that he had been familiar with

the memoir of Dr. Grant, the missionary

ing young ladies up to his room at night
and lotting them down in the morning, by
means of a rope and basket arranged from
his window'. Of course a great deal of
gossipptng conversation was the conse
quence. Tho following colloquy occurred
between two young ladies: "Jane do you
really believe that students draw girls to
their rooms?". "Certainly my dear more
than that I know they do." . "How?"
"Well, I was going by the college one
morning; it was just before light; 'twas
Very early ifi the morning," atid I beard 'a
noise inthe direction of one of the college

as I seo you now, I saw a girl in a basket
about half way from a three story window
to the ground: and just then tho rope broke
and down I came!" "Oh! Jane!"

quite dry, neatly cut round the edges, and
the picture will bear all the treatment chil
