I ... «**ad t« »uch unlm wilt ***et, oppoaita the Pavilion. The Picture. It was just in the »had< w of the ruine 1 wall which towered above the Line shining waters of the river, and > when tit* thin was high dropped down j the long, trailing ivy vine to kiss the laughing wave—they sat, two women " ! One, with her arms resting upon a broken column, her dark eyes w;th the ! memory of long ago stirring their bril liancy into life, gazed afar out at the floating clouds, her face a sad reflection of the past; while the other, many years younger, half knelt at her feet, j and with a smile upon her red lips, and j the light of hope in her glorious eyes, I played with the light moss upon the f hank beside her. It was a |>erfe<:t picture ; for the twi- ' light crept in and fell a> rt>«s the fore- ; ground just enough to bring the won derous beauty into relief. To the artist eyes of ltalph Bertram, who, wandering down the river bank, , came upon them, it wa» a perfect har mony of light and shade—an exact subject fur a masterpiece. Then uud there he sat down, and sketched until the darkness shrouded the whole ami shut it out from view He took his sketch home, and for hours sat and gazed upon it enraptured with the | glorious beauty of the faces. Who are they, or rather, who was she? Who was the girl with her dreamy, happy face, and dark, melting eyes, with their hopefulness and trust? When morning dawned he went down •gain to the river's bmk, and watched for hours ; Lut they never came. He inquired of every passer ; but no one i knew them. One would say, "Ah, je«, I have never seen them—two women, one old and sail, the other young and happy. Ido not know their names." Ami another would declare he never was aware of their existence ; and thus Ralph found his search a vain one. ilu went on working day and night upon his picture, and at lust it was complete ; and when he wont up to his studio, in the city, and pi.iced it there, hit friends held up their hands in ad miration and worshiped it; and before many days it found a place in the most renowned art gallery, and all the world went crazy cyer it. Thus Ralph lieitram became cele brated ; and orders came upon him faster than he could till them He be came the lion of the season ; and far and near his praises were sung. Hut to him it was as nothing when thoughts of his beloved picture came ; and hour after hour he sat and gazed upon that beautiful face like one entranced. "1 believe, Mr. Bertram, that you are positively in love with that face!" said a belle, as she came upon him in the gallery. "Was it from life or from your imagination that you painted it ?" "From life" " Impossible ! It must have been a dream! No living woman was ever blessed with such biauty." " Yes. one !'' The lady went away, and beforo night one-half the world was jealous of his picture and declared him crazy. "It must b« so, for uo woman ever possessed such rare beauty. It was a dream, a mere hallucination !" Hurt rani heard it all and laughed. I'erchance the day might come when he could bring this wondrous beauty before them, and convince them; and with this hope he labored aud sought her far and wide. ]t wnn a cold, bitter night, and round the corners the wind swept, bringing with it fearful gusts of hard, cutting sleet, and penetrating to the bout*, every unfortunate being who chanced to be abroad. Bertram came briskly down the street from his studio, wariu ly wrapped in * heavy coat, with a visou of Ins pleasant rooms before him, and lightly humming an ojM ra. He had turned from the principal street, and *as walking along w here all was t)iii<'t, when he suddenly canto upon two women, who stood near the iron railing in front of the house. '• Mother," said one, "it is but a little lurther. Do try to keep up! Hero, lean upon me ! Mother, mother!" She was vmnly trying to support the si'iliing form, but not all hfcr strength could pi event her from falling. And Bet rim sprang forward in time to re ceive her in Ins strong arnicas she fell buck ' Mother, oh, my mother!" was the wild, despairing cry "Don't be alarmed, Miss! She Las only fainted. MY abode is here near at h«nd, mid if you will as>ut iuc, 1 will take vour mother there " The ynuug woman obeyed hitn with out a word, and with her assistance Kalph bore the senseless form to his apartments. There was no light in the room, and after placing the inanimate form ui>ou the aofa, he lighted the gas As the soft radiance shone through the room, he sprang buck with an exclama tion of surprise and delight. His pic ture* The face of his td>>ii/.< d one' At the sound. the younger started up and looked toward him. How beautiful she was. with her hat falling back and the damp waves of chcsr.ut hair cling ing to her broad white forehead, and the great lustrous eyes fixed U|>on him tn wonder ! Bertram could not »p«ak. "My mother'" she began, with quiv ering lips. "Pardon iiu 1 ' I fi-rgot myself." Ami he brought wine, cordials, und he labored until the blood »tolc back in little flushes, and tlie dark eyes opened. For several moments she did not se»ui to understand the strange surrounding*; but when the youngest spoke she said, "Agnes, darling!" ••Mother, are you liettcr ?" "Yes. Tea " Agnes ! It WAS like her. Pure, good, beautiful, saint-like ' Bertram sat in the window until they called hun. The elder was standing in the enter of the room, her mantle thrown around her, and one hand rest ing on the shoulder of her daughter. "I wish to bid you good night and thauk you for ycur kindness. If it were ill my power. I would—" "Madam, I beg you to sit down. I hare spent months in searching far you: I and I beg you, now that I bars found SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 10, 1577. you, to remain here. If you are will ing to confer a favor upon me. remain here to-night at lea<-t." "Searching fur u-! WL»t do jou mean?" '•\ou will learn one dav! I owe yen all I possess." .She'at liack, seemingly petrified with astonishment! "Who are you? I never met y >u! You owe me nothing." "Will you remain here?" "Yes, if yr>u need us." After a time, the noble looking wo man sat in a comfortable chair near the grate, her lovely daughter at her feet; and Ralph Bertram brought forth the sketch, and told the story. "And you are the great painter, ltalph Bertram?" asked Agnes. "I am Ralph Bertram,'' he answered smilingly "And the great picture of which we have read, was only poor mamma and I sitting upou the bank of tint beautiful river in the country where we visited last summer. How strange." Angea Li Grange was happy and con tented iu the splendid room; and with her hand resting iu her mother's lap, heard her tell the story of her father's death, their flight from their beautiful home in France, of their struggles and hardships, and their utter loneliness, and smiled when Uaiph Bertram gave his friendship The Art Gallery was crowded, and all the fashion of Loudon was out and promenading up and down the grand saloon, and passing before ltalph Ber tram's picture to admire and comment. All at once there was a buzz, aud the crowd parted on either side. D>>wu the opening came Bertram with a li'dy lean ing on either arm, and as he passed a murmur went round. "The faces in his picture! How !> au tifnl! How perfect!" lialph was never happier or prouder than when he stood with his fair com panions and heard there their words of praise, and when Agnes whispered: . "It is grand, Ralph, and lam proud of you." "My darling your praise is worth more than all else to me," he answere 1; and he pressed her hand tenderly, and looked into the dark eyes, worshiping her glorious beauty with all his heart Once more the world gathered to envy and admire, when the handsome artist and his love stood before the altar in a fashiouahle church, ami were made one. The great picture brought him a for tune; and the originals brought him comfort and peace. TJIEY were talking about the most manifest signs of lunacy. "It's my opinion," said Y., who had seen a great deal of life, "that the real lunatic is the man who, when his sincere opinion is asked, gives it."
