Suddonly hud di'iith roiiie npim liim in he f;it beside his youngwit'c, altenmtely omwiiig moth er mid child, iw his baby buy crowed merrily in her iu'iiih. "Heart disease," the doctors all said, and as (lie beautiful widow fell from one iiMi'ming swoon into another all through that long, dreary niht, friends shook their mournful h.'ads,Hnd feared fir her reason, even if her life were spared. "No danger,'' said Aunly l?rown, (he village oracle, "I've lived along time, children, ami them that taken on tin; most, gets over it the soonest. She'll have another husband in less than three years, you mind what I tell you."- "1'or Minnie, Aunty, to sienl; of siicli a thing at such a time! I never will believe it," cried one sympathizing lady, and a down others joined in the deiiunciatioit of such unfounded and heartless speculations. "You'll all see," replied the old lady, 'land it's a Lord's blessing that such tilings don't hist. This world would be an awful place if they did," and she jiassed from the room, leaving her hearers shocked and horrified ut what they deemed entire want of any relinc lueiit of feeling. When, a few hours later, the wretch ed young mother was borne, in a state of. death-like insensibility from her liijsbuiid'sconiii, where she had thrown herself in all the abandonment of woe, every one sighed in their hearts over the inritiM grief that had (alien into her young life. (iordon Hurst was laid sorrowfully away in his grave, and his heart-broken wile rose from her bed after long weeks of brain fever, to shroud her slight form in the blackest of crape, deny herself to all society, and was seen only at divine service, and occasion ally making her lonely pilgrimage to the churchyard of the village, where fresh white ilowers were kept bloom ing the long summer through on the lowly mound that covered her heart's holiest love. Late in the autumn, when the snowy blossoms were begin ning to droop their pretty heads, rare hot-house plants weie kept under glass to watch above the sacred ashes ot Hit "dear departed." . "She will never ho herself ngmn," said her friends, iw they looked on her grief-slmdowed face, when her thick black vail was swept for a moment aside to speak to the white-haired min ister at the church door. "(), yes, she will," said Aunty lirown; "God don't let people grieve like that always. It' iig'in nature, I tell you. Magay Hurst wM le Maggie Somebody-else before she dies, us isure aa my iinmu is Betny lirown." "How can you talk so, Amity!" snld the horritled Mrs. Hcbrin, who, cling ing to her husband's arm, Blghed over the lonely life of the voting widow. "Because I know I am telling the truth," returned the old lady; "and you will all see for yourselves if you live a natural lifetime. Unconscious, Mi'ggie passed slowly homeward, with lm Uiiek vail drawn closely over the pale, sad fuee. over which the tears fell bitterly as she en tered the now darkeucd and desolate abode, where peace and happiness had bo lately crowned hcryoung life. Truly Hhe mourned for her dear husband, the father of the lovely Uiy whose bright black eyes and curling hair were ho like those liow crumbling back to dust. "Oh! my husbund, my darling!" she exclaimed, as she clasped his child to her heart; "there eun be no more last ing agony tlm.i my endless and eternal grief for you 1 : Mow. shall I drug through all the dreary years toeomeV" and hIiu bowed her head on the boy's bright curls and wept longund bitterly. Winter, with itfl snows, ami spring, with its bloMsoms, had mime and gone, and the hot nultry summer was scorch ing all life from the earth. A deadly fever made Its uppearaiice In the vil lage of Milldole, and every household held iU prostrate victim. Old Dr. Nelson found himself une qual toall the lttbortlmtdevolvediipon him, and wrote in haste for his young nephew, Gilbert Clifton,, to come to his assistance. Ho responded at once to the urgent call, and the two Avorked day and night, doing all that human skill could deviBo for the relief of the iufl'urew. Among the most violent oases was little Willie Hurst. Forduys and ulgbta he lay in wild delirium, calling repeatedly for "Mamma!" while Maggie knelt in agony by bis bedside, jrolorlng God to ppare her one, darl ing from dealh mid Ihe crave, she looked very biaiilil'ul In lur ud mis. cry as hhe knell there, ,.r black r,,U., making Mich striking i niiir.n-t in I c lily-whlieskln; and iMu'lli'mii thought so as l,o bent abiive the liltle siid'errr, and iiM.ni, 1 1 her ho would do all in bin power tOMive her child. Tlnve lung days and iilehls the danger continued, mid every moment llm juiting di.itor could pliably Kpiu t, limn h uihci' pn tleiils, be ili v'ou il (n tit 1m most Intonat ing one, mill! Mngulc learned to listen for his step ami seek comfort In IiIn glance, with ll strength of which she was imt aware. On (lie tilth nigh! of wulehlng, then was a i hange fur the belter. In. ('lit ton stood with his linger on I lie Utile hot wrist and his waleh In his hand, counting the bouinlliig piil-atiuns, while Maggie looked an.loiisly from the thought nil fare of the duelor to llm Hushed cheek of the liltle one, tiwuiting ill dread ami dispense the deeisleu file know was coming. "His lever Is evidently abating, he said ut last, as he laid the little hand back upon the pillow, "and I think, by morning. It Will have entirely euulc.l,'' " Thank God !" exclaimed Maggie, under her breath, "ami thank you too, doctor, for I know thai to you', under heaven, I owe the life of my child. I low shall 1 repay you?" Tears of Joy lllled her eyes as nl'ie raised them tolii's face. "1 have only done my duly, madam, and deserve no thank's," he replied; though, he thought it she did nut Wear such deep black, he could readily suggest a way ny which i.he eould more than repay him'. lUtt her crape dress scaled hls'llps and leaving some direc tions to he I'ol lowed, in case liltle W il lie should awaken, lie left hhn, promis ing to return before daylight. Thu next morning the. child was eii- tii'.tli iVi, fi'itiii f,'ii'. noil Io'unIiui'I time was so far recovered that Doctor ( lillou won Id no longer call him his patient, and of ciair.se his visits to the widow's cottage ceased. If he was reluctant to yield Ihe pleas ure thev had broui.'ht him, he did not say so, and Maggie did Hot acknow l edge, even to her own heart, how -lunch she missed his sympathy mid compiin- lousiup, i lie sicKiiess in ine uia..e gradually decreased, and Duelor I'lif- l,,ti i.,,tii.t.,il it l,w nii'li Inline, itlllv calling at thu cottage- gate to say good nyc lo tils nine paucm, turn leave a package of bon bons in his hands. The winter missed uwav: slu ing came Willi her fragrant verdure to clothe the earth, ami still Maggie Hurst, w as almost isolated in her own home, see iiHi oiilv her must intiniule friends. and not a spot of white about her sable garments. One evening Dr. Nelson called lo see lu.iv niwl iiuirkiiiir her white cheek athl almost transparent hand, said, "You ougm to pill on il more eneei-mi ui ess, Mmririe- Ihis ileeu black is l'llinilui cm luiiihli iIi.mi'. noil il. can nut hrniii back the dead." "I know it," alio replied; "Hut 1 have tried fli vain to make up my mind to l, nve od'iiuiiii'iiiiiii'. II seems like sun dering the hist link that binds me to him." rl'lin leartt flllnu hei'eves nsshe Sliokc. and fell upon the hand lying in her lap. "Jhit you ought to consider your health, my child," said the kind old man: if not fur your own sake, fur lil tle Willie's." He rose to go, but turned back to hand hern letter, saying, "I came near forgetting this." lie made no other comment upon il hut picked nil his bat and walked oul, living her lo rcau m r letter auuie. This was only one of many that hail reached her under cover to the good old doctor, who always attended to re ceiving and mailing her letters for her. Her replies he had taken the precau tion to ri'-eiielose in another envelope, and direct in his own largo spraw ling hand, thus closing up every avenue to vill.-iim eiissiii iiiiu.il Hie stibieet. The doctor kept his own counsel, and said not a wont to any one, noi even io Maggie, when he gave her the letters. The llrst she had received was a simple inquiry alter httlo Willie, to vhii'l, kIwi l'elilil'l I briellv. Another and another followed, uiitil she grew t liwil; I. ii- these kindlv messages of all'eclioii, so friendly and respectful in tone, none ot Whleli ever comaineo the most distant allusion to love or marriage. Nothingto startle or arouse her from the unconscious security in which sheslumbered regarding her own feelings. This evening, she listlessly broke the seal of the letter handed her, and her face grew crimson as she read. Four closely written pages! Her hands trembled ami her eyes grew dun as she read on and on. never pausing until she reached the last line, when dropping the letter in her lap, she burst in a passion of tears. "Oil, no, no," she exclaimed, "I could never consent to such a thing never," and she refolded the letter without again glancing at its contents. That night when she pressed her sleeping child to her breast, she said to herself again and again that she would always be true to the memory of her Uiy's fath er. The next morning she sat down to answer Dr. Clifton's letter, and alter beginning several epistles, she threw tlieln all aside, having failed to express herself as she wished. A week passed away, and she again opened her desk to indite a reply to Gilbert Clifton. "I wish to restrain his cheering friendship," she said, "and 1 scarcely know how to write." At last the letter was finished and sent oil', and as an answer came very speedily, it eould not have entirely quenched the Doctor's ardor. Gordon Hurst had just been dead two ...ivu u-lii.n MaiTi'ie received the letter just alluded to. Although she was as , .....I.., tn.i. IiiiuIhiihI'm melil- uevoicu ii v .-i w - - orv, and still secluded herself from so'eiely, and continued tiie deep mourn ing of her dress, she did not reiuse Gilbert Clifton's entreaties to write to him, "if only nsu friend." Six months were passed'away when the collage was ..lm,...l r.vi it thin 1 time, uml MiiL'tm' went to the city to pay a visit to the aunt who nan raiscu ucr. w Nelson suhl, and of course he knew.

"The change will uo ner goon, cue was just grieving her life away here, in -i,..., I, I ,, womler if she went to buy her trousseau," said Aunty Drown, and 1 only nope sue mis. nao jiu mourued long enough for a young U'lllllllll like her. and she ought to uinrry again." "Why Aunty Drown! No one but you would even think of Hpeaking in that way or maggie iiursi. nne mm never even Tallowed a gentleman to visit, still less make love to her," re plied the little woman ; almost indig nant at her tdaiu spoken companion; Aunty Drown laughed a little soft Inmrli na who mrIiI : "You will see one day, my uenr, wno knows the most of human nature, you or me." 8ix weeks . later Maggie returned home, und every one was surprised to see her, at church, with white strings to her bonnet! And Mrs. llolJson would scarcely believe her own eyes, when chancing to pass the cottage one evening during the following week, she sow Maggie ou the front porch water ing her geraniums, dressed, in a white tlresa of ppotless purity, The lie:.l Week Doctor Clii'toll lalue to the village, anil Weill Willi Doiii.r .Nt l-oii lo m o his w lilloin patient S il liellulst, who wt;s lloV n bright los.v hoy of four summers. on tin' follow iim Sunday morning Mi I Mule u a Mm ki n lo I tn center, w lien, ill-t I,. t'..r,. ll,., lithiir l'., i it, .re I ii., i-'. 4 ' i' I ice, ii an iiu.'e ihue up to the i hiiivh ; door.

Maggie looked bright and lumpy In her cheerful attire, and Mrs. llcl'iroii could scarcely express liergood wiMios from sheer a.'tonisluiient. "Who would have dreamcdof stieh a thing," she said, looking niter the bride and groom as they entered Ihe. carriage, nud 'drove back to the cot tage. "I never Wiis so lliUlliler-lllieK In my life."

The Progress tin Nord slides that in a small village a young girl in service had saved a little fortune of 1,- suo francs. Hearing her mother was ill and required her care, she left her home by rail, ami had to ulighl about a league distant therefrom. To reach her destiiialloii she would have lo pass a wood, and fearing Ihe dangers of the way, she resolved to pass the night at ihe house of an uncle who lived near. Hhe knocked up her relations, told her story and her fears, ami was put into tlio room of her female cousin w ho was out at work. While lying awake she overheard a conversation which filled her with horror. Her hosts were plan ning lo murder her for the money she carried. Thereupon she leaned from the window and lied, half linked, until utterly exhausted she encountered two gendarmes. After she had told (hem what had happened, they led her back to her un cle's house, w here a light was observed in a distant part of Mm garden. The gendarmes approached the spot. silent ly, and found (hat both the uncle and limit were engaged in burying a body otiwraptcd lu a blood-stained cloth, the chilli was suddenly snatched away, mid the murderers uttered a common cry of terror. The victim wal their daughter, who, having come home late, had crept up stairs quietly, so as not to alarm her parents, and had I i killed in a mistake for her cousin.
