"No. I suppose not but, Alice, it is a tcrriblo draft on a fellow's purse just now 1" Alice Lynde felt n cold chill ut her heart --was it possible thot Dr. Carson' words had a foundation in truth ? Was her bus baud becoming a prey to tho terrible dragon of avarice '( Mr. Lynda went on : "I supposu I must try to Cud somo farm house or other whero they wou't charge the children's weight in gold.

If lto could have only wit nessed the passionate hurst of teatsshegavc wt'.y lo when uhe was alone by llie couch of her sleeping ones I The farm-house to which she. nnd her chil dicu were to be banished for the summer was not a very inviting spot, well shaded, however, with n stream of running Wnter through the. grounds, and plenty of. fresh milk am', vegetables. I!al Alice Lynde felt the lack of cheerful nnd congeiii.d society, and pined seerel ly, even while Frank, and Carry, and little Lucy, were growing sun burned, and rosy, urn! healthy. l wish Clinilcs could spend ti lillle more of his time la te !' thought she. And it was scarcely to be wandered : t that she recur red sometimes w ith a thrill of y earning to the old days when she was an lu i'ess. under the spiva lino lir.deii tree.-, of l'eech tirovel For Charles i.ymte'a sake . -lie had given up her beautiful homo had dated hef uncle's threat. one afterward tvirtied releullc-isly into i tl'ect ol ilisinheiittiiH c : had submit- ted to a!! llie rials a:id evils which must necessarily surround a poor man's wife and now Charles left her alone to amuse herself as best she might. So while the children grew fat nnd rosy, Alice rrrew thin ond pale. ' He will co, ue to-night," alio thought, one Saturday evening, as she brushed her glossy golden hnir into the shining bunds he liked, and put on his favorite blue muslin dress, with a long torqnnic pin in the blue tib-i bons that set off the Iransparcnt whiteness ' of her throat. "Oh. it seems an a-ro since I saw him l ist !'' But instead of her husband' presence, the up train from iSew lork brought only a note, burned and briel : "Dkaii Alice: I cannot come up to night business is too pressing. Love to ' the children. C.

'Flcuse give this to Mr. Lynde," wrote tho doctor ; "1 was nt his office twice on Satur day afternoon, trying to find him, but the doors were closed, and the clerk told mo he had gone into the country. Tell him lie's a lazy fellow to neglect business so, when his business is making him rich so fust. Alice Lynde rend the words three times over before tho fairly took ill their whole meaning. 'JIu has deceived mc,' she thought. 'It j was not the convenient plea of business that i kept him away from mc !

'Mamma !' exclaimed tho astonished little girl, "why do you cry V Are you sick, mam ma V 'Sick! yes,' sobbed poor Alice, 'I am sick of living. 1 am sick at heart, cliild.' And tho plentiful shower ol tears helped to relieve her overcharged heart. 'I will endure it for the sake of these little ones; I will suffer on aud try to be silent,' thought Alice, pressing both hands over her aching -bosom, The next week Mr. Lynde was to come and bring his family homo. Alice looked forward to the day with a sick nnticipn-ion a shrinking expectation. Sho longed for tho hour oi their meeting, uud yet she dreaded it. ln this nervous 6tnto of excitement she came to the door, leading little Lucy, us the carriago v, heels grated over the stony coun try road, and stopped in front ol the old fashioned portico. lint Charles wis not there only the driver who touched his hat with an awkward attempt at politeness, as he descended from the box. 'If yoti please, ma'nm, Mr. Lyudc could not come but he'll be there to meet you.' More neglect ! Alice answered not it word, but tho hands with which eIio tied tho tluo ribbons of Lucy's lint tren.bltid sorely, and Her lip would quiver, iu spite ol tlio reso lute little white teeth that held it down 1 The little ones laughed nnd chatted, and played in the carriage as it rolled along, exclaiming loudly at the various objects on the road, but Alice leaned back iu the cor ner, palo and silent, seeing nothing but tho fantastic visions of lief own fevered mind. Once or twice the idea ciossed her brain that the journey was rather longer than sho had expected, but sho did not reuson at all on tho subject, rtlupsiug at once into her painful reflections. 'Mamma 1 oh mamma 1 what a pretty place 1' chorused the three children at once. 'There's a tall, white statue back of those fir trees, and a fountain all sparkling like diaiuouds, and oh, mamma, such beautiful beds of flowers 1' Alice roused from Iter thoughts for the instant, leaned forward aud gu.od out of the window, Burtlv there was somctbing familiar. in I those green terracoe, with their flight of OLD tnurl.le steps, in tho Dorio columns of the ninjestio atone iinV.7.n before which tho cur ringu came to a hnlt.
