Kound about it smooth lawns un dulate, dotted her and thero with fine trees, while fjay flowers and danc ing" fountains add their quota to the g-eneral beauty. And all this wealth, through the death of old Mr. Crolius, has come to his only child who bears her moth er's name Charlotte. She stands now in the library window, holding back the heavy brocaded hang-ing-s with one slender hand, while she gazes out with a sad, mournful ex pression in her soft eyes. All unno ticed by Charlotte, as she stands with her face turned from the door, some one has entered, and is fj-azin at her with a world of pity and yearning1 in his look. "Oh, I am so lonely!" she sig-hs. She fancies she is alone, and the thought frames itself aloud in words. Startled, she turns; but as her eye rest upon the manly, dark-browed, dark-eyed face, the sadness vanishes from her own as though by the touch of a mag-ic wand. "Are you glad to see me, Lottie?" he nays. "Glad?" the one word reveals more than she dreams, and the next mo ment she is clasped in strong1 arms, while the voice she has never yet heard without a secret thrill, says softly and eag-eriy: "And I am more than glad! Oh, Lottie, you must have known you could not help seeing' my love for you a long time back! I should have spoken before, had not my poverty, compared to your wealth, kept me silent; but something1 your father said to me when I was with him, the very eight before he died, has made me cast doubt and hesitation to the winds. Lottie, he said he knew I loved you, and he would wish no happier lot for you than' to be my wife." A lovely glow suffuses the sweet face as she looks up at him. "I always knew father respected and liked you, Eaton." "And you, yourself, Lottie?" The golden head droops shyly as she murmurs: "And I more than lika you; I love you. " And so, when the year of mourning' prescribed by custom is ended, they are married. Four-months have passed and Char lotte's dream of happiness fee etas to her almost too perfect to continue. One day her husband was engaged to dine with a party of gentlemen friends during the afternoon, but was to re turn in the evening to escort his wife to a reception. The afternoon wears away, and it is 8 o'clock, and, all robed ior her ex pected festivity, Charlotte, while waiting for her husband's coming, busies herself in getting his things in readiness. She opens the glove-box lat, and lifts the ivory-tinted pair which are on the top. As she does so, from out of one of the gloves falls a note, in what has every appearance of being her husband's writing. Glanc ing casually at it as she lays it on the table, she sees the address "Miss Adele Graham." The name is not unfamiliar to her, though she has not yet met her. She has often heard Miss Graham men tioned as one of society's most bril liant belles. Charlotte stands for a moment" hesitating; then a wave of memory passing through her mind, brings with it some words a friend had said to her shortly before her marriage: "So you have cut out the beautiful Miss Graham? I heard she was once en gaged to Mr. Eaton Wolcott." With trembling fingers the young wife breaks the seal and reads: "My Beloved Adele Forziva my seeming neglect la not writing to yon for so long: but lnoe Inexorable circumstances have come between us. even to the extent of hampering our correspondence, I have thought it best ta i , j i-v-r-r LABORED SOB3 BXTR3T FROM H19 LIPS, wait until I could be sure of the note reaching your hand without ianer of discovery. Then. followed laments at the cruel ty of their enforced separation, and protestations of vindying affection, with the name, "Eaton Wolcott," in full at the end. With a cry, Charlotte sinks upon the floor, as though felled by. a strong hand. Eaton is falsel Then pride comes to strengthen the crushed heart. Dragging herself up, she staggers to her feet. "I have been rightly punished," she says, wearily, "for reading what was not intended for my eyes. "But it is well yes, well that I did. He mar ried me for my inheritance; he shall have it, without the incumbrance he took with it." A half hour later the door opens, and Eaton enters, saying anxiously: "Lottie, darling, I hope I have no loT Xj&ggftff i0S., ll kept you waiting; I trted hard to get sway, but could not." There is no answer, the room is smpty; upon the lounge lies the inowy silken robe his bride wore at the altar the day that made them one. But no Charlotte bounds to meet him with the love-light in her face that makes every home-coming a thing to look forward to. On the dressing table, conspicuously placed, where he :annot help but see it, is an open note. Penciled upon the envelope are these words: "Eaton: I know all; that It was not Char otte vou wantet, but Edgemoor. toouzh to attain one you were forced to take the other. Dh' why did you deceive me so cruellyf I go from you with a heart torn and laoerated, and with such grief as I hope you may never know. Farewell!" He reads it, his head drops into his hand, and convulsive, labored sobs burst from his lips. It is six years later; in the sitting room of Mrs. Trevor's country resi dence, at Tarrytown, are three ladies. One is middle-aged, the others are her daughter and the companion who has made her home with them for the past three years. The morrow is Miss Evelyn's birth day, and, to celebrate the occasion, a fair the proceeds of which are to be given to a neighboring hospital is to be held under Mrs. Trevor's auspices. "Miss Merle, could you not take Miss Martin's place and be the foun tain nymph?" "Certainly, Mrs. Trevor. I would do more than that to show my appre ciation of the many kindnesses I have received at your hands." The eventful afternoon has come, and the spacious grounds of Elmhaven are the center of a brilliant scene. In a secluded nook, surrounded by vines and over-arching trees, is the grotto formed of rocks and paved with shells, in the center of which, in the midst of tropical foliage and plants, is the lemonade fountain. The afternoon is waning, and the visits to the grotto seem to have ceased, and, feeling somewhat wearied, the girl, going behind the fountain, seats her self to rest upon a rustic bench. A few moments later, voices entering the grotto fall upon her ears, and one which with a wild heart-throb she recognizes. "Ah, the nymph of the fountain has deserted her post," Mrs. Trevor says, laughingly. "I suppose she despaired i of any more customers." And then they talk for a while on impersonal topics until at length the lady says, gently and a little hesitat ingly: "You must forgive me, Eaton, if I cause you pain by what I am about to ask; but I am so anxious to know. Ilave you found any trace of her your wife?" The answer is low and troubled. "No." "Eaton, have you any idea as to what could have led her to take such a step? " "My dear friend, I know you are prompted to speak as you do, solely through your affection for me, and I will requite that interest by confiding to you the facts; they have never be fore passed my lips. My own life's happiness, and what is still more precious, my little Charlotte's have been wrecked solely through a mis take. a "You may know that I have, living in California, an uncle my father's youngest brother, who was but five years old when I was born. It wan his boyish lips that gave ine the name he bore himself Eaton. One he aeon in society he met a young lady from Lawrence, Mass., who was visiting friends in New York. "He saw her often, and became des perately in love with her, and soon discovered that his affection was recip rocated. He is handsome and of ex tremely fascinating manners, and her parents at first seemed pleased with his attentions to their daughter; but when, upon inquiry, they learned that he was possessed of a very mod erate income, their affability changed to coldness. "As the time went on, the young lady had cause to suspect that her let ters were intercepted, and told her lover as much. Knowing I intended to visit Boston and Lawrence, and that I would probably meet hia lady love, who was much admire-d in so ciety, my uncle wrote me, asking as a favor, to take charge of his corre spondence, and see that his letters reached Miss Graham by giving them to her myself. "I did not tell my wife, for, kotow ing her strict ideas of right and wrong, I feared she might think tiiat I had better not interfere. "One of those letters, course, 'Eaton Wolcott,' signed of my wife found and read. My uncle's hand writing and mine are vmry similar, though a close observer wooild see a number of slight differences. But poor little Charlotte believtid that X loved another, and had married her for her wealth. I have searched un wearyingly, and never till I die shall I cease that search, but I fear it will be fruitless." A cry stirs the air.
