THE: BOCK IST,AKD ARQU& SATURDAY, APRIL, 27. 1S89.
A breath of passion fills all space
The world holds naught but you and me
We seem two bnata which UUy drift '
Upon a smooth and boundless sea.
Tour hammock's still as Is the breeze
The time has merged our hearts to tune
The air is dense with odors sweet
Oh, God, how rare this night of June.
We talk De Muaset, Lamarttne
The channel brings us to our far
How deaf we are to prompting volo.
How blind to all but dreams elate.
Our Ures will always be as now.
Each cleave to each forevermore;
Then let the world say as It will.
We'll madly dream till life Is o'er.
Oh, blissful night; oh, rapturous time;
Oh, meeting eyes that lixk lu mine.
Oh, smiling stars which brightly gleam.
Oh, air so fraught with passion's wine.
We drift what does it matusr where?
The world holds naught but you and me;
We'll sail together through all time
Across the smooth and boundless sea.
October winds around me blow.
Our dream is wan and gray and dead;
Why did we heed the tempter's voice
Why did we follow where he led?
June's rose leaves mingle with the wine;
We lira apart, by passion cleft,
A friendship might hare been divine;
But bow, there's only coarseness left.
A PLAIN GIIIL'S STORY.
Nobody wanted that baby.
The (uther liiul realiz! an enormous for
tune in trnilo, lind taken u politics, and bis
judicious handling of the last had resulted in
peerage. Ho was"' fully aware that
the agreeable titlo of "my lord," which sur
roumlod Lis footst'is with a (ren'.lo murmur,
was slightly inmnruous when applied to
himself , and hotietormlnnd to marry a woman
to whom "uiy ludy" was n natural adjuuet.
No difficulty about this, every one knows.
The Earl of Bullywally had aoven daughters
and an encumbered estate. How he greeted
the noble nail manufacturer, and invited him
to fish for salmon in the Ballywally waters;
how the new peer surveyed the seven daugh
ters, and dually decided on tho youngest, Lady
Flora; how Lady Flora, being 18, and in love
with a penniless soldier of llve-and-twenty,
tried to show him that an of her sisters were
bettor fitted for the post of Lady Terrick
than she was these are matters well known.
Also the grand wedding, and the welcome
borne from the Terrick tenantry, and the
pale sweet smiles of the young bride
A fear after there was greut expectation.
Bonilres were built ready for lighting; the
ringers hung alxmt tho Terriek arms, wait
ing their orders, and inside the greut bouse
people walked silently and whispered anx
iously. At last the old woman who bad
come from Ireland to nurse the Ijuly Flora
(she bad lieen the darling of her nursery)
crept down the great staircase to tho library.
ber heart misgiving her, btit a bold front to
"Praise Ood, yor honor your lordship has
a beautiful child."
Up started tho father, a flush on bis elderly
"A boy f" lie cried.
"Nay, yer honor; not this timo. It's the
finest girl in the world though
Down in bis chair sat Lord Terrick, angrily
glowering at the fire. After a minute's si
lence the old nurse spoke, und there was anger
in her voice:
"rll be going back to your lndy, my lord.
Is there anything to say from your honor 1"
"Eh I" he started. "Yes, of course. Very
glad it is over. Hope she will soon recover."
But before the argument had fairly
commenced as to tho propriety of ring
ing bells or lighting bonilres, tho mother's
tired spirit found rest, and the smllo on her
dead face was all for the tiny girl she left
When the child was a-year old and matrons
were spreading their toils to provide a solace
for the widowed nobleman, and when he had
sent for the little girl and heaved a deeper
sigh than usual over the unconscious head,
Lord Terrick died, and, snapping the difficult
chain of evejits, left the lion. Flora Benson
heiress at law to all he possessed.
Providentially this bereaved child full into
good bands, and received a sound and whole
some bringing up. The fact revealed itself
early that Bhe would bavo no beauty, and as
she grew to girlhood her well cultured mind
decided that her money would bring much
pretended adoration to her feet, and that she
would never have the happy consciousness of
believing she was loved for herself. When
she was 18 she confided some of her doubts to
ber aunt and chaperon, the Lady Margaret
O'Eelly, and between reasoning and coaxing
persuaded that good and affect iona to woman
to consent to a romantic plans he hud formed.
"You see. Aunt Margaret, though my
father was a peer, he was also a man of
trade. While I live in state in Surrey large
sums of money are paid to my ageuU by the
managers of the manufactory in Stafford
shire. There is Ridwell Grange two miles
only from tho works. My father lived there
till a peerage aud this estate were attained
"Well, my dear, and do you want to live
at Ridwell Grange? It is your own."
"No not just that," suid Flora, hesitat
ingly. "What then, cbildf' asked her aunt, laying
down her knitting aud udjustiug bur spec
tacles. "You see, aunt, I want to get away from
myself for a little."
"Tho saints preserve us!" cried the Lady
Margaret, although she was a very stanch
Protestant, and looked upon a priest as the
direct and accredited messenger of tho evil
omj. "What has turned your headP'
"Well, auntie, it's thU. I'm very ugly, you
"Who said eoP Inquired the cider lady, in
Flora laughed outright.
"My looking glass. No oue eke has ever
suggested or ever will suggest such a thing.
But I have studied my short, plebeian nose,
my littlo eyes, my nioutu"
"H-'.d your tongue, child!" cried Lady
Margaret, aghast to And how well acquaint'
her niece was with her impcrfectiour a'ud
conscious, too, that the and ber sisJ
many tunes uewauea that
daughter bad not oue of ber
'Please, auntie, let me ufolJ my lan

Lady Margaret. "I'm o sad coward about
going across the water."
"There's no water to cross, Aunt Margaret
I just want to go to Staffordshire,"
"Dear me I I asked you if you wanted to
lire at Ridwell, and you said no."
"I'm a tiresome, provoking, trouble
some" "Have done now and tell me what you do
"It's just this: I want to find out what
would happen to me if I were poor I mean
with enough to lire on, but not an heiress.
I want to live near Ridwell Grange with
yon, and for nobody to know who we are
Just for a few months, to see what the tea
. ants are like, and the noil makers' homes."
"My dear, anybody but my doting self
would say you were mad!"
"But you won't say it," whispered Flora.
And all that evening they sat like two con
spirators arranging their plans, with bated
breath, for leaving tho luxurious home at
Terrick, and sotting up in a small furnished
house with two servants, one to be taken1
with them, the other hired on tho spot
On a dark November evening, about 8
o'clock, the train drew near the station, and
Flora's eyes bail been fixed with a sort of awe
upon several flaming, smoking places the
only things visible in tho darkness where
the ceaseless work of the iron trade was car
ried on. Bhe fell into a reverie, wondering
how many of tbe human beings were work
ing for her, and was roused by her aunt say
"I wonder if the carriage"
"Auntie, we must take a fly, you know,"
said Flora, deprecatingly. Luckily they were
alone, but for their elderly maid, who most
unwillingly connived at this demeaning of her
ladies. "You are Mi O'Moore, and I am
your niece of the some noma We have a
modest little income out of which we are going
to do as much good as we can."
Lady Margaret repressed a groan.
"And 111 be calling your lady ship 'my
lady' as sure as my name's Martin!" mourn
fully responded the maid. m
"Get a fly, please, and if all the luggage
wont go on it, send the rest up to Mist
O'Moore, Acacia Cottage. Here's the full ad
dress." It was Flora who undertook all tbe ar
rangements, and they were soon landed at tbe
neat little furnished villa tbey bad engaged
just outside tbe town. A tidy Staffordshire
woman opened the door, and cozy nres burned
in thetwolittlosittingrooms. Lady Margaret
looked round tbe drawing room and across
tbe tiny slip of passage, and muttered:
"Like a doll s house I"
"Yes," said Flora, quickly, "so neat and
After a fow days things tegan to settle
down, and Flora niudo the acquaintance of a
working clergyman's equally energetic wife.
This lady pronounced the orty at Acacia
cottage to be evidently quite respectable, and
the girl intelligent and inclined to be useful
She alo remarked how very plain she was.
Her husband agreed with ber, but softened
the observation by a well known proverb,
"Handsome is," etc.
Flora gained her object, and became ac
quainted with nail niakarx First sho went
over ber own works under the condescending
guidance of a very vulgar manager to whom
a large salary was paid. ilie appeared to be
examining nails, but was really occupied in
studying the beings who made them. . Very
grimy, very stolid iu most cases, not much
iuiuginatiou being fostered by their work or
surroundings. Home looked thin aud ill,
many of the young workers especially. Flora
found out the wages paid to each, and the
manager said they were asking au increase,
but wouldnx get it.
"What if they striker asked Flora,
"Tbey know bettor. If they did I'd replace
them by other men."
It was getting very cold weather now.
Flora went to some of the homes. Wretched,
dark and damp, in many cast's squalid. She
had bard work to gain admittance some
times, and despaired of reaching the people
in her assumed character: At times she found
it a relief to wander near Ridwell Grange.
and was glad to find the place let and well
cared for. There were nice cottages near It,
and when resting in one after a long walk.
Flora met another visitor, who knocked and
entered cheerily, all tbechildren running for
ward to meet him. He began fumbling hi
bis pockets for apples, and then as be offered
them, cuuUt siht of Flora. The woman
"It's Miss O'Moore, sir; a young lady from

"They need friends, ignorant and down
trodden as some are, and puffed with discon
tent aud arrogance the rest 1 h"ur a good
deal, for I rent my house from the agent of
oue of tho big firms."
Flora said she bad seen some trouble in her
short acquaintance with tho iieoplu, und then
telling tho woman sho must hasten borne, she
The early shndows of a dull, frosty Decem
ber day were falling, aud she walked quickly,
as there were two miles of lonely road to
travel Suddenly, from the hedgerow, a
wild looking, dirty man stepped before ber.
Flora tried to move aside, but the tnnn held
out both bands, saying:
'Tm starving. You looks well fed enough!
Give me money, or it'll le tbo worse for
The girl turned pale, but resolute.
"I have no money let me iass."
"You've got a watch if you have no mon
ey, said the man, "and 1 11 'ave it.''
His dirty hands just clasped her delicate
wrist; sho shrieked for help, though fearing
none was near ; then a man's figure, followed
by a huge dog, leapt the hedge, and tho dog
seized the beggar by the shoulder. The
wretch let Flora's hand drop with a bowl of
pain, and tho girl felt a dazed darkness sur
rounding her, aud became unconscious.
"Mv love " said Lady Margaret O'Kelly.
"I think our littlo farce should be ended. We
promised to return to Terriek for Christmas,
and there is only a fortnight left."
Flora was looking meditatively across the
prim little front garden at the milkniau's

people. I am sure tho good vicar and that
very gentlemanly man who has Ridwell
Grange speak most highly of the good you

"Quite true, auntie," said Flora, turning
towards her. " You have been very patient
and good to stay so long. I am only sorry to
leave my quiet busy lile for all the humbug I
shall have to endure.
Lady Margaret looked keenly at her niece.
i ou would not be a coward, my dear?"
.-o; i uou t tuuiK so at least. Dear me,
there's the door bell, und Hannah U just
nringing our cozy leal Koine old gosBip
from the villas, I dare say you are good

But the visitor wore man's attire, and was
Mr. Barrington. He came, he said, to ask
Miss O'Moore's advice as to some Christmas
festivities for the poor and would ber ni
do him the kindness to help hiuif
"I feel great sympathy iu your work, Mr.
Barringtou, but my niece aud I are leaving
"For Christmas r' he asked in a low voico.
"Altogether," said Flora quietly. "My
aunt and 1 only intended a short stay here."
Mr. Harrington became wonderfully silent
and distrait, and drank his tea in an abseut
manner, breaking in iqiou some conversation
with the inquiry:
"When do you leave?"
"In four days," said Lady Margaret. "Pray
have some more toast." Flora left the room
to send off tomo letters, and Mr. Borruigtou

A bewildered expression gathered on the

make sure Flora still stood near.
"In truth, Mr. Barringtou. you are Flora's
tenant, as she is Miss Benson of Terrick
Park, and 1 am her aunt, Lady Margaret
There was blank silence for some secomls.
"Will you forgive mof asked Flora, shyly.
"My darling! if with all these crushing
advantages you still can take me, what have
I to forgive At least, you know I loved you
" We are so glad of that," interposed Lady
Margaret, hastily brushing a tear from her
eye. "Flora has been as nivowu child might

thing to see ber n lurried for her fortune."
