MY AUNT MARY.
Aunt Mary ! Ah ! how my heart
thrills at the sound of those words.
She was so good-all who knew her
loved her. It has now been more
than two years since we laid her in
her silent tomb.
I often wondered, when I was a
child, why Aunt Mary would go to
a particular spot in the yard, and at,
a certain hour every evening. I
noticed, too, that her brown eyes
were always filled with tears ws she
left that place. I once heard my
mother say to her, in a low tone,
"Sister Mary, why will you go there,
when you know it saddens You so
"It helps me to bear my heavy
burden," was the reply.
I asked Aunt Mary once why she
had never miarried.
"My darling," she said, "wait
until you aro old enough, and then
I will tell you the secret of my life."
Years passed by, my 'Aunt Mary
growing dearer and dearer to us all
every day. But I noticed that she
began to fade very rapidly. She
had that fell disease--conisumption
----which keeps one lingering so long
m a dying condition. It filled inc
with sadness whenever I looked
upon that sweet, peaceful counten.
antic, that emaciated form. One
day when sh was able to sit up for
somie little time, she c.lled me to
her. I went, sat upon a stool near
her, and laid my head on her lap.
".Lily," she said, "you remember
I told you several years ago that

your mother, Brother Will and I.
We all lived very happily together,
we were so fond of one another.
You know your mother is much
older than I, and she married when
I was quite young. After she, left
and Brother Will wont off to school,
I was very lonely indeed, but I had
a governess, and managed to while

heartily wished that diys were
weeks. It seemed that all my joy
would vanish when he should leave.
At last the time for parting came.
They returned to college, and I was
left alone. But then he was
coning back with the flowers, he
said, and I had that to look forward

"One night I wvas at a party, and
as I was promenading the room

men talking very earnestly together.
Presently I heard one of them say,
