THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1890.
OUR LITTLE QUEEN.
Could yni have Been the violate
That blossomed In her eyes.
Could you hare kissed the golden hair
And drank those holy aig ha,
Y mi would have been her tiring maid
Aa Joyfully as L
C -ntent to dress your little queen
And let the world go by.
i "Ml. I you have seen those violet
Hide lu their graves of mow,
Drawn all that gold along your hand
While she lay smiling so.
Oh ! you would tread this weary earth
Aa heavily as I.
Content to grasp her little grave
And let the world go by.

In wrath that would not wait for words to
convey it, Sara flung the maltreated lily at
her It bit LucV cheek and fell upon bar
"whit work.' She picked it up, looked at
It at If to sea whether or not It could be re
paired, and apparently deciding that it was

and upset it

In savage sincerity.
Lacy had run the point of the needle under

as she dipped the wounded memliur in tha

In th next second she collapsed into an

A wav of color, so faint that tiara could

herself out of the room.
At 9 o'clock tarnt evening tuo girls were in
the drawing room. Ainlty was completely
restored, and Lucy was playing a diiigontly
correct accompaniment to Sara's singing
when Dan Hyde entered. Both sisters saw
him and hi courteous gesture of entreaty
that tbey should finish the song, tiara smiled
with her eyes aud nodded, warbling spirited

The brilliant little blonde bad an inspira

behind Lucy's back. Neither of the respond

dumb enow was repented.

Tha elder sister sat down again on the op
posite side of the fire from the visitor, with
an inarticulate murmur of embarrassment
be mistook for dissatisfaction. Her face was
as fine and cool as a marble Minerva's. She
leaned back In her chair, her beautiful bands
overlapping one Another At the wrists, and
relieved Artistically by the maroon of her
velvet gown. She looked altogether com
posed and a trifle weary. Heavy rain bad
come on with the night, and in the dead, brief
silence succeeding Sara's flight they heard
the wash and thud of tue wind driven flood
against wall and window.
Dan Hyde might not be a confident lover,
but bis was not the faint heart that never
win. He led off tolerably well.
"How cosily delightful home end fireeide
re on a night like this!" he began, in a
natural, colloquial strain.
"Very," responded Lucy, dryly.
"It makes one long for a home of bis own,"
was the wooer's next advance.
Lucy's face paled and stiffened. She gasod
steadily iuto the ruddy palpitations of the

and crossing the rug in her turn, took a
straight i. . reception chnir, the whole

Dan's face glowed like the hottest coals, to

The story of "Enoch Arden," so beni

successful is difficult, and yet Mr. New
